Also : William Worthy contributes about 700 words how FBI braced him about "a reference in my speech to an FBI flyer on Robert F. Williams.. Holding up before the audience a copy of the flyer, I pointed out the erroneous FBI claim that Williams had been 'diagnosed as schizophrenic'.. The flyer also invented a couple of razor-type scars on Williams' body... I went on to tell the audience how the flyer indirectly came into my possession" [ripped off a wall in a post office and so 'govt property' --flyer reproduced in small].
