Stuart B. Carter of Fincastle, Va., announces his intention to run for the Virginia Senate and details his views on racial segregation, asserting his belief that the U. S. Constitution should guarantee equal rights to all American citizens but expressing opposition to "the mixing of any of the races." Carter speaks against Virginia's massive resistance policies, arguing that, although he does not support it, public school integration is inevitable, and the transition to integration should be executed in such a way as to keep harm to a minimum.
