Anti-Semitic aspects emerged among white segregationists who this week picketed public schools being desegregated under Federal court orders, according to press accounts of demonstrations at the schools. The pickets carried signs including such slogans as “NAACP is Jewish financed.” Noted among the demonstrators were such extremists as Robert Shelton, of Tuscaloosa, imperial wizard of the Ku Klux Klan; and Edward Fields, head of the National States Rights Party.
