Interview with Thompson Gaines
QUESTION 17
LOUIS MASSIAH:

Again, what were you doing?

THOMPSON GAINES:

What was I doing?

LOUIS MASSIAH:

Right.

THOMPSON GAINES:

Well I wa--it's really difficult to remember one single assignment. Ah, I was mostly just being sure that everything was in place. And what I mean by everything was in place, to be sure that the people in front of the booths, ah, in front of the polling places had literature, ah, to give the people for, with Carl B. Stokes' name, ah, mostly observing the turnout. We were confident that the people who were turning out was for Stokes, but we were trying to more or less monitor the flow, that was what I was doing.
