REPORT OF DR. WEDDINGTON'S TELEPHONE CONVERSATION WITH REV. GRIFFIN

6/21/63

We will be going to Virginia July 15th. (we can't go in without Rev. Griffin being in the community. He'll be back then.)

We will be working with U.F.T. teachers. The University of Michigan will take less places than previously expected. Also Rev. Griffin expects to be able to find more places for the teachers.

Sunday there will be a meeting with Richard Parrish, Julie Seid, Dr. Weddington, Dr. Simon, Lenny and Marjorie for cooperative efforts (and to settle on a clear joint statement that the newspaper cannot distort or

misquote.

Expenses will be approximately $7 per day per person for room and board.

Books - We can bring them down if we will assume responsibility for their handling and distribution.

Clothes - Rev. Griffin feels that Mississippi or other places may need them more, but we can use our discretion. Again we should work out the details

Cars - He suggests we bring our own. If we want to rent cars we have to dit in Richmond.

Banking and Money - we should keep our funds in the same bank that the

County used...the Consolidated Bank and Trust Company in Richmond.

Surplus Milk- HEW Dept in Washington will take care of it.

Statistics - are available thru Dr. Morsell (NAACP study) The Michigan

State studies are not available yet.

Centers - there will be at least 2 in a center at all times, with a responsib1e community person and a phone nearby.

Demonstrations - there are none planned to date, it there are any Rev. Griffin would prefer we do not participate since we were asked to Prince Edward for teaching purposes only.
