Bill Mauldin and Bill Noke, book critic for the Chicago Sun-Times, flew down to Oxford Mississippi on Saturday September 29, the day before African American student James Meredith showed up to integrate the University of Mississippi. They returned to the airport after church on Sunday, intending to return to Chicago in Mauldin\'s plane, only to discover that it was surrounded by U.S. marshals, as Meredith had come into town a day early. Being newspapermen, they decided that representing the Sun-Times was more important than their own safety, and returned to town in time to see the riot ensue between federal officials and students. This cartoon was produced in the judicial aftermath.
