- 3 pages. NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) press release of correspondence with IWO related to Ingram matter. Witt, the IWO's lawyer notes that a recent New York Times article on purported misuse of fundraising, accused the IWO as calling for the support of the Ingram legal defense, a task which had been solely taken on by the NAACP. The IWO's lawyer stipulates that the audited Ingram Children's Education and Welfare Fund was set up to be used solely for support and education of Charles and James Ingram (residing now in Philadelphia), not for legal support. Thurgood Marshall replies to Witt that he is "pleased to receive your assurances" in this regard.
- The Jewish People’s Fraternal Order was the largest ‘national’ section of the International Workers Order (IWO) which focused on cultural awareness and celebration, mutual support especially in health insurance coverage, and anti-fascist activities. The IWO also gave particular emphasis to supporting the rights and interests of African Americans.
