The WITNESS. I don't even have to look at it. Mr. Hays. Is that his signature ? The WITNESS. No. Mr. Hays. It isn't his signature. Can you tell me from the initials who typed it?
The WITNESS. There again I am not
Mr. - Hays. It is just a typewritten initial there, it says A.C.P. by D. Who is that?
The WITNESS. H. I believe it would be Dorothy Himes. Mr. Hays. But you say that isn't his signature? The WITNESS. To me it does not appear to be his signature. Mr. Hays.

(The above-referred to document was marked “Dargans Exhibit 7" and received in evidence.)
Mr. TAYLER. And a photostat substituted therefor.
By Mr. TAYLER: Q. You also identified, as you described it, your dog-eared memorandum of your report on your Miami trip. Would you offer that to us or give that to us so it could be put into the record ?
A. This is all I have.
Q. We could photostat that and return the original to you, also. On the reverse side it shows the people whom you contacted in Miami on that trip?
Mr. TAYLER. Could that be marked “Dargans' Exhibit No. 8” and may that be admitted into the record subject to withdrawing it after it is photostated and the photostat substituted ?
Mr. Hays. Yes; without objection.
COnsensus seems to be that housing, education and To social problems are not as urgent as the economic problems created
o't.j. as more Cuban refugees move loto Miami. The City has had an over
supply of limited-skillod laborers for some time. However, Negroos are experiencing more sor ious unemployment because their seni or unskilled jobs can be handled as well, and often for less salary, by a Cuban refugee.
Despite this, Mr. Chairman, no particular impression was given me that Miami faces a "long hot summer." Negroos are rather highly organized and their groups present a cobesive front. the leaders of these groups enjoy a close working relationship with
policy local authorities and are called into consultation before/decisions are are made. They (the leaders) seem to bave a reputation for being rollable guardians of the wellare of minority groups and I suspect that this gives them greater control than 18 evident in other cities.
Attached is a short list of contacts. Suggost working through ther.
