Thert was none. 

MrS^udley asked the officer 
If he was going to give him a 
ticket, t!» do it. "I'm in a hurry," 
he said. ' • '-. •■ 

•In a hurry?" exclaimed the 
officer. "Well, then I'll keep you 
just a little while longer." 

He then began to make in- 
quiries about the change of ad- 
dress on the back of his license. 
Dudley had typed in the change 
of address himself. He told the 
officer so, and couldn't remem- 
ber whether or not he had in- 
formed the department. So then 
that was considered a misde- 

Mr. Dudley began to grow im- 
patient. The offk^ insisted 
upon speaking to him as "boy." 

Tm not a boy," said Dudley. 
"I'm a man." 

WhereuptMi the officer told him 
to "shut up," with the addition- 
al insultinf" remarks. 

Mr. Dudley says he was 
dressed pretty wellTTiis car was 
a new roadster, and he feels the 
officer just couldn't _ quite take 
the fact that a Negro presented 
so fine an appearance. He plans 
to post bail for the tickets he 
got, and then go to court mid 
ask for a jury trial when the 
hearings will be held. He feels 
a white man would not have 
been treated sp discourteously as 
he was.

NEW YORK— Paul Robeson, in- 
ternationally famous concert art- 
ist, whose passport was arbitrar- 
ily cancelled by the State De- 
partment last week, has demand- 
ed an explanation for the un- 
precedented act. 

Planting out Uwt his passport 
is necesaary in order for him^ to 
fill concert engagements abroad 
and thua earn his livelihood. 
R<ribe8on charoctnized the Stote 
Department action as "another 
bkrtant eaiample .of the Truman 
a dm i nis tration to silence Uie pro- 
tests of the Negro peofde." 

In recent years, Robeson's con- 
cert appearances in this country 
have been before progressive au- 
diences only. Throughout the 
music capitals of the world, the 
eminent baritone has been : ap- 
plauded by capacity audiences. 
Because of his militant stand 
against Jimarow and the second 
<dass citiaeoship status of tte 
Negro people, RebeMa has 
•amed the disfavor of official 
and Icnr leaders of the Amertaon

For Negro Liberation 


And Unclcrsiand the World in which we Live 

NEW YORK— (ATLAS)— An im- 
mediate investigation "of the 
manner in which Negro tro<^ps 
are treated in Tokyo, and the 
elimination of racial discrimina- 
tion so persistently reported" has 
been asked by Roy Wilkins 
NAACP adminisftrator, lin a letter 
to Frank Pace, Jr., Secretary erf 
the Army. 

Suporting his demand for an 
investigation, Mr. Wilkins sub- 
mitted the following quotation 
from a letter received from an 
informant in Tokyo: 

The American public ought to 
know that rjcial discriminatioh 
here is^ as flagrant as it is in 
Georgia. AncP if the occupation 
is doing anytiiing successfully 
in Japan, it is successfully in- 
doctrinating the Japanese with 
the 'American way of Life' which 
excludes full freedom of any- 
thing to many people, eepeoal- 

ly Negroes. 

In many ploces such <■ the 
PZ and -oonuaissary. mie eon no- 
tine how Japanese clerics in so 
many instcmces. 4uni withooi 
qwestion to wait oit a white face 
fizsL Much of Uiis I know to be 
the deep influence of the Army's 
southern element (which is in 
great number.") 

In his letter to the Secretary 
of the Army, dated July 21, Mr. 
Wilkins further stated: "Quite 
apart from the fact that some 
of the strategy of the Korean war 
is to disabuse the minds of the 
Koreans and others that this is 
a racial war and that this strat- 
egy is seriously impaied by the 
practice of racial discrimina- 
tion by the occupation forces of 
the United States, no American 
Negro troops should have to un- 
dergo this kind of treatment at 
hands of their country in 1960." 

ing their miserable policy I still 
have not been able to get a place 
fit for my little girl whose time 
on this earth is very limited in 
any case. I think that tiie White 
House Cwiference ought to lo<rft 
into this business of discrimina- 
tion in Federal Housing if it is 
really interested in' the welfare 
c* ALL children." 

Anotl^er woman tells of the 
case of Mrs. Cora Edwards who 
has a daughter with a serious 
ease of asthma. On July 28th 
she was rushed to the doctor with 
a bad attack. For the second 
time the doctor wrote a statement 
recommending moving from the 
housing with stone floor. When 
the statement was shown to Mr. 
John Dawson, the project man- 
ager, he said, "If they don't like . 
it there, why don't they move 

Mrs. Marjorie Thtwnpson feels 
that discrimination in the schoojf _ 
has a very bad effect on the" 
"mental, emotional, and .spiritual 
welfare of Ihe children." (Thia 
is the |heme of the White House 


, Mrs. Thomps<m says, "Our 
girls have inferiority feelings in 
relation to white girls. The teach- 
ers aggravate this. One teachet. 
used to work for claimed she 
didn't have any prejudice, but 
then she would say things like 
this: 'Cf^red boys are so dumh. 
TTiey make good lateren 
though.' ^ 

••Whenever there is trouble they 
always transfer the colm^d girls 
but never the white. In Poly HI 
m Long Beach, they organize the 
basketball teams according to 
group. They are either all Negrov 
all Japanese, or all white. ... 
Our children never get to be yell 
leaders and thinks Hke thAt 
There are many activities ouf 
children can't get in'h)." 

When the wcrnien were i«nihd> 
ed that the recent PTA conven- 
tion considered that peace was 
the most important child care 
issue today, since failing to ac- 
CMnplish this purpose "our rtiil. 
dren will have little 'opportunity 
for growth, freedom or even life 
itself," everyone was in agree- 
ment. A Stoc^fholm Peace peti- 
tion was filled out. 

Since most of the women be- 
longed to the Dorrie MUler unit 
•f the American Legion AuxDf. 
sry It was decided to try aiid get 
the unit to send a delegation to 
the Los Angeles Conference on 
Children and Youth *% be held 
at Pepperdine Collet's on Septem- 
ber 16th. 

Another meetmg o: the same 
group of women was pianned for 
the follovring week on he other 
side of town in order to involve 
other friends who had not been 
present at th^ hwnt. irf Mis.

By C.A.B. 

Sonae of the crimes committed 
on the Aoor of our Congress 
^ would puUto shame many of the 
' smaller n^ons, not in the cate- 
gory of great democracies, should 
such acts be committed by their 
government officials. 

August, the hot month of the 
year, marked the opening of a 
rather hot season in the Con- 
gress of the United States. 

It seems that William L. Pat- 
terson, prominent Negro leader 
'. and executive secretary of the 
Civil Rights Congress, while at 
a House Lobbying Committee 
meeting, failed to receive a civil 
reception from the members of 
the committee. And after two 
hours hecklirtg and harrassing, 
Patterson indicated he did not 
expect anything -;t)etter from a 
representative in Congress, 
especially from a Congressmen 
from Georgia, a lynch state. 

The idea of even a cultured 
Black man like >yilliam Patter- 
- son, for such He is, looking a 
white Georgia suppremacist in 
the eyes and telling him what 
he thought of him and his state, 
so irked the Georgia Congress- 
man that he lunged at the CRC 
leader, screaming. "You b 


of a b- 

And it is said that Congress- 

'man Henderson Lanham (Dem. 

Ga.t. if such he must be called. 

was so infuriated and detertnined 

ta-.attack Patterson physically 

that it took two police officers 
to calm him. 
— — -BHbo, who is now perhaps 
chief fireman in hell, had his 
day in the U. S. Congress and 
ttfat -period was one the decent 
citi»ns of this nation thought 
would not be repeated. But why 
should the people cherish such 
hope when Georgia, remains 
Georgia with a tryant as gover- 
nor and the lynch law remains 
in vogue?? When the Ku Klux 
Klan retains its statu* quo and 
the Negro voter is intimidated 
and thrown into prison, and even 
murdered if he comes to the polls 
when his KKK neighbor tells him 
to stay home? 

Our government is big and 
strong. It is demanding respect 
and getting it from the other na- 
tions of the world. - 

Now we. the fifteen million 
Black Americans who have al- 
wEiys held aloft the Americcan 
flag, never allowing it to touch 
the ground, are asking and de- 
manding the same protection and 
devotion for our service that we 
have render^ and are even now 
rendering in Korea. 

We are aware that Congress- 
man Lanham who insults the 
dignity of our government with 
his use of profanity on the floor 
of the Congress, should be im- 
peached and sent home. 

But no word of cojidemnatlon 
for his behavior is forthcoming. 

But Paul Robeson, because he 
insists that while we criticize 
other nations' political, social, 
and economic programs, we 
should be criticized for refusing 
to extend full equal citizenship 
rights to the 15 million Ameri- 
can citizens of whom he is a part 
— he is considered a menace to 
. our country and his passport is 

The administration apparently 
. feels that its "Voice of America" 
cannot have voices competing 
with it siich as that of Paul Robe- 
son, asking for justice for Willie 
McGee, the Trenton Six, the Mar- 
tinsville Seven, and other victims 
of lynch Justice, and demanding 
the freedom oi African and all 
Other colonial peoples. 

In attemptl^ to silence Mr.. 
. Robeson, the state Department 
gives example and encourage- 
ment to those fascist -minded 
elements in America who are 
only too eager to resort to vio- 
lence in' trampling up<m Ameri- 
<ran civil liberties as they did at 
Peekskill a y^ar ago when they 
sought to prevent Mr^ Robeson 
from giving a wmcert. The State. 
Department's action is of a piece 
with the brutal police assault at 
' Union $quare oii August 2 yr^en 
jAraiany thousands al people were 
^■lenied the right of free Assem- 

bly to hear Mr. Robeson, Dr. W. 
E. B. Du Bois, and other speakers, 
and to voice tneir own demand 
for peace and the outlawing of 
the atomic bomb. 

The, jailing of innocent people, 
the curtailment of freedom of 
speech and political dissent, and 
now the government's infringing 
the right to travel mark the pro- 
gress to the fascist state in Amer- 

Our government fears to let the 
outside world know of the strug- 
gle of Negro Americans for jus- 
tice, just as the government of 
South Africa and other imperial- 
istic regimes fear too close in- 
spection of the pl^ht of black 
people in Africa. 

The State Department's action 
will most certainly have the ef- 
fect of adding to the distrust and 
enmity which the peoples of Asia 
and Africa feel toward the 
American government as a result 
of its leading role today in main- 
taining colonial and feudal re- 
gimes and blocking the libera- 
tion struggles of the Korean and 
other oppressed colored peoples. 

Why shouldn't it?

IndependenhProgressive Party 2nd 
Convention, Sacramento, Aug. 5, 6 

SACRAMENTO. Aug. 6. — T h e 
State Capitol last week-end was 
the scene for four political con- 

The two old parties came in 
high-powered automobiles and 
parlor cars, looking like million- 
aires or their substitutes. 

The Republicans and Demo- 
crats took a firm stand on the 
side of the President's war pro- 
gram, while the theme of the 
Progressive Party was Peace. 

On the ticket in the November 
election will be the Democratic, 
Republican. Independent Progres- 
sive, and Prohibition candidates. 

As was to be expected of the 
issues endorsed by the Repub- 
licans met also the approval of 
the Democrats. The Republicans 
pledged their 'inexorable, un- 
flinching loyalty and support" to 
President Truman on Korea. The 
Democrats also endorsed Tru- 
rnan's i>olicy in Korea. 

In contrast to the stand taken 
by the two old parties, the IPP 
in its State platform said: "At 
the birth of our party in 1948 . . . 
we pointed out that the two old 
parties, obedient to the forces of 
big btisiness and the military, 
prepare for war in the name of 

"Today the fruition of that 
policy has involved us in a con- 
flict in Asia, while on the home 
front, the same old parties, grown 
desperate and' fearful of the 
awakening of the American peo- 
ple, hurry to kill freedom here 
at home." • 

The delegates approved the 
recent statement adopted by the 
national committee of the pro- 
gressive party, seeking an end 
to hostilities ^in Korea. They 
voted unanimously to send wires 
to President Truman, Atty-Gen. 
J. Howard McGrath, and the Sen- 
ate Judiciary Committee, pro-, 
testing the jailing of Harry 

•fi^e IPP called for a UN treaty 
oj^rl^wing atomic weapons and 
proposed a "conference between 
American and Soviet officials" 
for the purpose of ^aching a 
settlement of "outstanding in- 
ternational issues." The IPP also 
came out especially for national, 
state, and locacl FEPC laws, and

ity groups, no matter what their

Reuben Borough, of Los Ange-

He succeeds Hugh Bryson. presi- 
dent of the Marine Cooks and 
Stewards who was the founding 
chairman of the IPP in California. 
According to law Bryson coculd

The Progressive 
Party Policy 

True to form the Progressive 
Party has not equivocated, re- 
tracted or even wavered from its 
platform adopted at the founding 
convention at Philadelphia, July 
23 25. 1948. 

The ringing slogan of that 
first convention was: Peace, 
Freedom, and Abundance. 

At Sacramento last week where 
the second State convention was 
held, that same slogan was heard 
and adopted. Five years after 
the end of the second world war, 
the drums are beating for a third. 
Civil liberties are being de- 
stroyed. Millions cry out for re- 
lief from unbearably high 
prices. The American way of 
life is in danger. 

The Progressive Party believes 
differences between nations 
which threaten world peace can 
be resolved only by conferences 
and negotiations, and not by 
force. That the people can en- 
joy cibundance only if the vast 
resources of our land are used 
for the welfare of all the people, 
and not for the profjts of the few. 

The Progressive party is the 
people's party. From the top 
level to the b6ttom, all racial 
elements are equal, working to- 
gether with peace as their no- 
blest aim. They contend that 
the Truman Doctrine with its 
cold war aspects, the Marshall 
Plan, the North Atlantic Pact, 
and the arms program, have 

In no uncertain language the 
Progressive Party condemns the 
u-se of the atom bomb. 

The people who are t^eJJ of 
war and deception, realize that 
the two major political parties 
have failed them in the estab- 
lishment of adequate housiijg 
and jobs; in giving them free- 
dom fro 1 fear of starvation and 
the ravages of war. 

They will turn now to the Pro - 
-gressive Party, knowing full 
well that the liberty of a democ 
racy is not safe if the people tol- 
erate the growth of private pow- 
er to" a point where it becomes 
stronger than their democratic 
state. This, they realize, is 


Ms it a Criwne to Advocate Reaee? 

Believe It or Not 

Man's most precious posses- 
sion is health, however often he 
neglects to observe and practice 
Snnall attentions and needs to 
keep him healthy. 

We cultivate flowers by fertil- 
izing and watering and digging 
away the weeds that sap their 

We feed our chickens the sort 
of food that makes for good 
health. The same caution is 
used in hog and other food:pro- 
ducing animals. 

Race horses are examined 
daily. Heart and muscular ac- 
tion watched carefully. 

But stfange as it sounds we 
pay little attetion to our own 
physical fitness. Food, aside 
from satisfying hunger for the 
tlrpe, comes in for small con- 
sideration. We visit a doctor 
when we are attacked by some 
disease caused by an overworked 
heart or a poisoned blood stream. 

Tuberculosis is one of the 
greatest killers we have to con- 
tend with. It takes its toll in 
thousands annually in our com- 
munity. The lives of many tu- 
bercular victims could be saved 
if they would start in time to 
drive off the intruder. 

The Los Angeles County X 
Ray Survey Foundation is mak 
ing it possible for you and yQur 
children from 15 years of age 
and over, to have a free X-ray

The case of William F. Mc- 
Carthy, the 38-year-old mer- 
chant seaman who waved a 
placard and made a speech from 
atop a lamp-post in New York 
in favor of world peace, is the 
answer to this question. 

The seaman had one eye pret- 
ty nearly blinded, his ribs 
knocked in. As a matter of fact 
Mr. McCarthy's body is a mass 
of sores and bruises from police 
kicks and beatings. 

At present McCarthy is in a 
New York City hospital, await- 
ing the decision of the hospital 
physicians as to whether or not 
his kidneys, his eye, and other 
members of his body will ever- 
again be useful. 

It has come to the attention 
of the editor of The Ckzlifomia 
Eagle that an Eastside merchant 
threatened to call the police 
when persons getting signatures 
on peace petitions came into his 

It is a well known fact that 
certain individuals, newspapers, 
and organizations advocating a 
peaceful settlement of the Ko- 
rean sham-battle are pronounced 

So it seems that we have come 
to this crossroad — a desire for 
peace spoken out loud is tanta- 
mount to the commitment of a 

Study the picture on the first 
page and you will see a sight, 
as one New York reporter said, 
that will make you vomit unless 
you have a very strong stomach. 

It all happened because"~^some 
honest citizens ' ripld a peace 
demonstration in New York's 
Union Square las; Wednesday, a 
week ago. 

New Y<tfH's Mayor O'Dwyer 

and the City Fathers seemed to 
think that we should be too busy 
fighting to make democracy 
work in Korea to find time for 
peace demonstrations in this 
country. , 

One of Mayor O'Dwyer's offic- 
ers, if you notice closely ip the 
picture, put his foot on the neck 
of a Negro lad while another 
officer twisted his prostrate body 
and threw him in the wagon. 

iNew York's Mayor O'Dwyer 
commended his officers for do- 
infe a good job. 

JBut there are others* in New 
Yc^rk and all .over the nati4)n who 
violently disagree with the New 
Yc^rk police and the mayor, and 
among them are the American 
Labor Party, Progressive Party, 
Civil Rights Congress, New York 
Council of the Arts, Sciences, and 
Professions American Commun- 
ications Association, and United 
Office and Professional Workers 
of America. 

Because these organizations, 
with many others, are always in 
front protesting police brutality, 
racial discrimination lynchings, 
and the likei the war-mongers 
,who profit by war at the expense 
jof the lives of those who fight 
\the wars, they are cajled ene- 
mies of the government. . 

When the people finally grow 
weary of war and its ravages on 
their homes, their happiness and 
even their lives, they will rise 
up and drive the traitors out of 
our government, even as .Jesus 
drove the cheaters out of the 
house of prayer. 

And then we shall have peace 
and plenty. And it will not be a 
crime to desire peace. 

Tohyo^ Korea^Georgia 

While our boys' of the 24th Di- 
vision (Negro) are shedding 
their blood in Korea to prevent 
those men and women of a dif- 
ferent color from their overlords 
to decide for therr^selves what 
form of government they want, 
the NAACP in Washington, D. C, 
is receiving complaints from 
Gl's in Tokyo that the discrimi- 
nation there is the same as in 

A news report reads: Army 
Secretary Frank Pace, Jr., at 
Washington, is in receipt of a 
demand for an investigation of 
racial bias against Negro troops 
in Tokyo. The demand was 
made by Administrator Roy Wil- 

kins, NAACP, in a letter stating 
he had been informed that an 
official army order restricts Ne- 
gro troops to one of four swim- 
ming, pools controlled by occu- 
pation forces and that the Jetp- 
anese are being indoctrinated in 
favor of discrimination, largely 
by American Southerners in the 
armed forces. 

Administrator Wiljtins also in- 
cluded a quotation from a letter 
he had received from a GI: "The 
American public ought to know 
that racial discrimination here 
is as flagrant as i* is in Geor- 

Is THIS what American boys 
are asked to die for? 

Mailed Fist, Velvet Glove 

Many of the 300 persons who 
face the bench in Division 29 of 
Los Angeles traffic courts each 
day have the grim look of vic- 
tims destined for the guillotine. 

For a few this dread is justi- 

Via the grapevine they already 
know the record of the balding 
young man with the gentle 
voice and the probing eyes who 
sits in judgment on their mis- 
deeds. The citizen with previous 
record of repeated major traffic 
convictions has real enough rea-# 
son to fear the ordeal. For such 
as these, the judge's manher can 
undergo an abrupt changle. Theri 
his voice can become as final 

and unrelenting as the click of 
a- jail door lock. • 

Thirty-three-year-old Judge A. 
J. Bernhardt wasn't sent down to 
Division 29 to play legal patty 
cake with the boys. He's taking 
his job seriously, one he defines 
as an effort to cure the 'reckless 
and negligent driver 6f that spe- 
cific malady. In the few weeks 
he's been on the traffic bench. 
Judge Bernhardt appears to have 
begun a check of the epidemic 
nature of -the ailment, particu- 
larly in those cases where it re- 
curs. Then the needle, some- 
times with barbs on it, gets a 
good workout " , 

The boastful accounts of U. S. "victories" over the USSR in the 
current United Nations meetings reminds one of the French gen- 
eral who lamented, after one of his country's wars — which France 
won, but lost much of her manpower and resources in the process: 
"Another such victory and France will be no more." 

The priess reports that the U. S. "stole a march on the Rus- 
sians" by proposing condemnation of North Korea as the first item 
on the agenda — that this was "calculated to provoke the Russians" 
— that this move had the "obvious purpose of putting Russia on 
the defensive . . " When the Soviet's effort to expel Chiang Kai- 
Shek's hatchet-man was defeated, we are told that "The Soviet del- 
egate took his defeat calmly." 

One may well ask, Who was defeated in this action? Was it 
Mr. Malik who sought to obtain representation in the UN for the 
Chinese Republic, which must be seated sooner or later? Or, was 
it Mr. Austin who used American power to defend the Chinese 
'traitors, whom his own State Department has dahined as corrupt 
and undemocratic? 

Whose action was calculated to uphold the charter of the UN 
and save it as an instrument for peace and justice? Malik's, who 
urged the admission of the new China so as to rebuild the only 
kind of UN which can achieve a fronstructive solution to the Ko- 
rean tragedy? Or Austin's, who fought to perpetuate the dishon- 
esty and illegality of the UN's conspiracy in Korea? 

Sense of Guilt? 

Why didn't the American representative answer Malik's charge 
that we are guilty of aggression in Korea? Surely this charge 
reflects on our honor and should have been met at l.east as bravely 
as Austin defended the murderer Chiang. Some people may think- 
that all this argument over the agenda and Chiang was a diver- 
sion to keep from answering that charge. And others will wonder 
if the calculated efforts to provoke the Soviet Union is the l)est 
way to prove the sincerity of our professed aims in Korea. . 

What kind of satisfaction or moral prestige can we derive from 
a purchased parliamentary victory? Our paid clique can give us 
majority votes from now till doomsday— but the people whom they 
are supposed to represent will not. It will be doomsday for our 
planners if they build their policies on any contrary rffesumptions. 

-^j^What is it- we are. so hotly defending in Korea anyway? Our 
officials say it's the South Korean government, "a truly, demo- 
cratic government" in the eyes of the bi-partisans who built it. 
(Gov. Warren says it's really Russia we're fighting in Korea.) But 
the South Korean government was defeated in the election held 
just a month before it provoked civil war. Syngman Rhee's party 
got just 22 seatb (117. ) out of a total of 209 in the Congress. This, 
despite Rhee's use of troops and terror and arresting opposition 

' If it's not^the government we're defending, then it must be the 
Korean people. But, can we say we're defending them when they 
so decisively rejected the Rhee gang (consisting of traitors and 
Japanese collaborators) which we foisted upon therh? The re- 
fusal of the vaunted ^outh Korean army to fight and the wide- 
spread resentment against our intervention in their civil war gives 
us the answer. 

The Simple Truth 

We are left fighting the Korean people — with the arrogance of 
^e white ^ppremecists. We are fighting a pveople with a recorded 
i^istory ot 4000 years — who used moving metal type for printing 
50 years' before Gutenberg, who built iron -clad ships 300 years 
before we made"^ the Monitor and Merrirhac. These people our laws 
say^are unfit to become American citizens — and we* claim we are 
at war to defend their liberties. * 

The simple truth i^that this Christian nation <as Truman de- 
scribes it) is trying to take up the unholy "white man's burden" 
which the British, French and Dutch tyrants are no longer able to 
carry. This is a futile effort to reverse the course of history. 

That this is the purpose of our Korean gamble is proved by 
Truman's original orders to intervene in Formosa (which even the 
British are objecting to). It is proved by the announcement that 
"The U. S. has decided to give full diplomatic support to National- 
ist China" — which the UP. dispatch calls "a diplomatic about-face." 
And it is proved again by the press trial balloons on August 5 
stating that MacArthur believes that "American efforts in Korea 
will be useless unless the U. S. is ready to meet the Communist 
challenge everywhere else in Asia . . ." 

This time MacArthur isn't just shooting his mouth off. Are 
we prepared to go to war with 450 million Chinese, the 80 millions 
in Indo-China, the many millions more throughout Asia? Is the 
United States prepared to take on all the colored peoples of the 
earth — who constitute two-thirds of mankind? Has the slave-hold- 
ing mentality of the South become the basis of America's foreign 
policy as well as its domestic scourge? 

What madness is this. Dp our Forrestals in the government 
think they will succeed where all other tyrants have failed — 
even with their atom bombs? Do they think that the oppressed 
millions, who at last are building a better life for themselves, will 
welcome us, will welcome a new oppression? They will fight. And 
the (essons of history show that we would lose. 

. Surely, the energy and lives and resources which we are ex- 
panding in this Asian adventure are worthy of a far more honor- 
able cause than the evil Chiangs and Rhees and the white man's 
ancient curse. i i i

organized i n 
oil coreas. was tlie related ques- 
tion of extending opportunity 
and security to Negro ond other 
minority workers. Security and 
odTancement were indiTisible. 
The CIO recognized that unor- 
ganized masses meant a weok 
labor movement, ttueatened con- 
stantly by possible exploitation 
ond strike-breaking tlurough the 
utilization of a great reservoir of 
Job-hungry and onbittered Ne- 
gro workers. 

It was plain horse sense that 
prompted the CIO to espouse the 
cause of the Negro workers in 
the first place. The great love 
ond brotherly feeling came a bit 
loter OS a sort of srtf^righteous 
ofterglow. Much later, the mov- 
ing cause of justice and extend- 
ed freedom for all the Negro peo- 
ple was emblazoned on the CIO 

Having mouthed platitudM 
and shouted slogans, dedicated 
to the greot American pastime 
of playing foottMll with Ute civil 
rights of American Negroes, the 
CIO subjected itself to a sort of 
■elf -hypnosis. It came to believe 
that to soy a tiling was to have 
It done, and in no time at alL 
the CIO was saying much and 
doing little for the Negro worker. 

But tliis was not the end. It 
oould not be. for by this time 
ttiere were vast number of Ne- 
gro wer fce r s enrolled as mem- 
bers. Their very presence was 
cm embarrcBsment, and w h at 
was worse . . . there were those 
who sittoerely believed in the 
tmderlytiig principles represent- 
ed by the platitudes and the 
■logons. Those who believed. 
oAed to implement tbelr belief,

The time hod now come to 

abandon tl^e Negro workers alto- 
gether. It could not hove been 
done tiirough the directness oif a 
purge, but it was done by 
launching on all-out ossoult on 
the allies and supporters of the 
Negro workers in the CIO. Aided 
by hysteria and the sell-out 
leadership of a few hond-picked 
Negro stooges, the CIO was able 
to immohtllze tlie miiltcmcy of 
its Negro members. 

However, there remained what 
the CIO tetmed. "a nosey minor- 
it^ of so-called small unions. 
These unions fought uncoinpro- 
misingly for local autonomy, po- 
litical freedom and outright re- 
peal of the Taft-Hartley Low as 
they contended for caid put into- 
effect tlie recrl principles of 
trade union d^nocrocy. With one 
ot two exceptions, they were ex- 

The CIO was in full retreat. 
Its apologists explained that ftia 
was no retreot; rather they char- 
octerized it as a planned, order- 
ly withdrawal to a more portzi- 
otic and (incidentally) strategic 
position. Weakened in numbers 
and prestige, and bound by se- 
cret cMnpoct and agreement to 
the interests of the employers, 
the CIO beat its breast VIrith the 
pitiful enthusiasm of an idiot, 
and proclaimed to the world thott 
it never felt better in its life. 

From its position of object 
^seisance at the feet of the very 
forces it was organized to com- 
bat, the CIO learned the lesson 
of true h\imility. It no longer 
hod the i^nrit t*> oppose. There 
was only sweetness and light, 
and the desire not to do any- 
thing to embarrass Mr. Trumooi 
and his government. 

It Lb only notural tiiot pursu- 
ing such o coarse of almost 
slavish devotion, the CIO would 
come to tibe point it reached last 
week when it took the first step 
to turn over the whole works to 
the FBI and the Lodsor Depazt- 
menL This in the nome of se- 
curity, of course, but octuoUy be- 
cause that was the intent in the 
first ploce. 

The final phase of retreat will 
come ii^ien large numoers of 
CIO members ore forbidden to 
work . . . and ore finolly ex- 
pelled. The purpose will hove

Dear Mrs. Bass: 


Many compliments have been 
expressied on, the splendid man- 
ner in which the story of the re- 
cent General Conference of 
Seventh-day Adventists was told 
in the California Eagle. Many 
people have been n?iade Eagle 
conscious because of this fine 

There are still other individ- 
uals who are anxious to obtain 
copies of the paper. If you still 
have fifty or seventy-five copies 
of that issue on hand, I would 
like to place it in several of our 
churches so that the mertibers de- 
siring this particular issue might 
foe, able to obtain it. I shall come 
by the office to pick the issue 

May continued success attend 
you in your very fine work. 

Very cordially yours,;

Said Anthony Eden in a de- 
bate on colonial affairs in the 
House of Commons: 

I am not comforted in the mat- 
ter by s6me accounts that I have 
read of the elections which have 
taken place in parts of West 
Africa and the way in which 
they were conducted. For in- 
stance, there' were the municipal 
elections' at Accra. Perhaps I 
might read this account from 
"West Africa" of what went on. 
When the voter came along, he 
was asked: 

"What is your name? What is 
your house number? Is it dtown 
here? Ah, yes. Who are you 
voting for? Mr. Alema? Right 
Next please." - 

That may be a good way of 
recording votes, but no one will 
suggest that it has anything to 
do with a secret ballot. I do not 
know to which party Mr. Alema 
belonged, but the point I am 
making is that this is not a 
good way to condust an electiofn 
to an authority to which we are 
to pass much more power than 
it has hitherto had. 


A last minute attempt to force 
the Los Angeles County Demo- 
cratic Committee to endorse the 
Truman conduct in Korea, was 
blocked at a meeting of the com- 
mittee on Tuesday evening. 

A resolution was offered in- 
dorsing President Truman's send- 
ing of troops to Korea and the en- 
tire American attitude in the 
Korean war, just when it was 
time to dismiss. In the furor 
which the resolution aroused, 
the janitors who were waiting to 
clean the room, flicked off the 
lights as a broad hint several 
times. ^ 

Thbse who favored the resolu- 
tion wanted to force it through 
willy-nilly, and persistently re- 
fused to let it go until the next 
meeting. Finally upon a show of 
hands, the "No's" were decided to 
have it, and the resolution waus 
put off until the September meet- 

The old gags of "Communism," 
"Reds," etc. etc. were used witii 
vitriolic effect, and even after 
the meeting adjourned little 
groups gathered in the halls in 
heated discussion. 

Resolutions adopted were: a 
condemnation of the City Coun- 
cil for rent -de-control with a re- 
quest to Pres. Truman and Hous- 
ing Expediter Wood to re-estab- 
lish control; support of the news 
vendors in their fight against 
discrimination; condemning the 
dismissal of 157 members of the 
faculty of UCLA for refusing to 
sign loyalty oath; and recom- 
mendation to vote "No" on Pro- 
position 10 on the November bal- 
lot, a phony proposition that 
would force a special election 
every time a new housing proj- 
ect was to be built 

Proposition 10 was character- 
ized as the "last dying gasp of 
those who have been profiting 
by no housing." 

via, both under CSerman occupa 
tion, there established the "in- 
dependent" regimes that held 
power until 1940. After the Arm- 
istice, the German forces played 
their role under Allied sanction. 
In Georgia a Men^evik govern- 
ment remained in power after 
November 7, 1917, and in Azer- 
baijan a nationalist group tem- 
porarily seized control later, but 
they failed to repress the popu- 
lar dfesire to follow the Russian 
example. Unwilling to jdeld, 
these governments placed them- 
selves under the protection <rf 
Germany's Turkish ally, whose 
troops entered the country. Un- 
der their pressure, Georgia and 
also Armenia, which had fol- 
lowed a similar course of devel- 
opment, proclaimed their inde- 
pendence of Russia. 

On November 27. 1917, SUlin 
went to Finland and addressed 
a Congress of the Finniah Social - 
Democrats, the country's major- 
ity party. He promised "complete 
freedom for the organization of 
their lives for the Finns, as for 
all the other people of Russia. A 
voluntary and honorable alliance 
of the Finnish and Russian Peo- 
ples. No tutelage cw surveillance 
from above over the Finnish peo- 

The Finns chose to go their 
own way. The Soviets redeemed 
Stalin's pledge by officially re- 
cognizing Finland's independ- 
ence on December 31. This 
helped swing the scales toward 
the leftists, and early in 1918 a 
Soviet-type government was es- 
tablished in the populous south- 
ern part of the country. Svinhuf- 
rud, the head of the former re- 
gime, fled to the north, and 
called for German help. The 
Germans under General von der 
Goltz placed Svinrufrud back in 
power. In gratitude, he and 
Beiron Mannerheim got the Diet 
to declare Finland a monarchy. 
Their invitation to the German 
Prince (rf Hesse to rule the coun- 
try fell through on Germany's 

After repeated appeals to all 
the warring powers f<M" a gen- 
eral armistice had failed, the 
Soviet government signed the 
peace of Brest -Litovsk with the 
Germans on March 3. 1918, but 
not bd^ore the latter had occu- 
pied Estonia and the free por- 
tion of Latvia, Belorussia, the 
Ukraine, the Crimea and Rostov- 
on-the-Don. They remained in 
these vital agricultural and in- 
dustrial areas until the end of 
the World War, when the Soviets 
abrogated the Brest Treaty (No- 
vember 13, 1918). The AJlies pro- 
ceeded to land troops and organ- 
ize rebellions within the coun- 
try. Premier Clemenceau of 
France wrote bluntly: 

"The inter-allied plan of ac- 
tion . . . interdicts to the Bol- 
sheviks access to the Ukraine 
regions, the Caucasus, and West- 
em .Siberia." 

By September of 1918, when 
the Germans still held huge ter- 
ritories, the Allies had taken 
Murmansk and Archangel and 
much of (Central Asia. Through 
the Czechoslovak (3orps, they al- 
so occupied the Urals, Siberia 
and the Middle Volga regi<m. 
The Soviet government con- 
trolled only European Russia 
proper, from Leningrad (then 
Petrograd) through Moscow to 
Stalingrad (then Tsaritsin) and 
the grain country north of the 
Caucasus. That was the most 
difficult period the Soviet gov- 
ernment has ever known, far 
worse than the crises of 1941 
and 1942. * 

Soviet victory in the wars of 
1918-1920 was facilitated by the 
war-weariness first of the (Ger- 
man troops, and then those of 
the AJLlies, Lloyd George^, the 
British Prime Minister, speaking 

fl Guide to the Soviet 


(Continued from Last Week) 
In Lithuania and most of Lat- to the Allied leaders at Paris on 

January 21, 1919, said: 

"Canada had decided to with- 
draw the troops, because the 
Canadian soldiers would not 
agree to stay and fight against 
the Russians. Similar trouble had 
al^ occurred amongst the other 
Allied troops. And he (George) 
felt certain that, if the British 
tried to send any more* troops 
there, there would be mutinty." 

Five days earlier he had 
named other countries specific- 

"If he (George) now proposed 
to send a thousand British troops 
to Russia for that purpose, the 
armies would mutiny. The same 
applies to the United SUtes 
troops in Siberia; also to the 
Canadians and the French as 

Therefore the anti -Soviet wars 
were carried on primarily by 
monarchist Russian forces armed 
and advised by the Allies. There 
were also the Poles, financed 
and supplied by Britain and 
France, which sent CJeneral Wey- 
gand to Warsaw. Winston 
Ch'-.rchill, then Britain's War 
Minister, was the chief organ- 
izer of the Intervention. A decla- 
ration signed by Clemenceau, 
Lloyd George, Wood row Wilson, 
Orlando of Italy' and Saionji at 
Japan, the Big Five of that day. 

"The Allied and Associated 
(jfovemments are . . . disposed to 
assist the government of Ad- 
miral Kolchak and his associates 
(in Siberia — W.M.) with muni- 
tions, supplies, and food to es- 
tablish themselves as the gov- 
ernment of all Russia . . ." 

Churchill later boasted that 
General Denikin in the Ukraine 
got 250,000 British rifles, 200 
guns, 30 tajiks, and hundreds of 
British officers, advisers, and 

The Soviets had not been in- 
vited to the Versailles Confer- 
ence, where this program was 


To win, the Soviets had to 
convert the country into a mili- 
tay camp. The Hed Army was 
organized. First it consisted of 
volunteers, th^n of draftees. 
Though millions of peasants had 
walked out of the Tsar's army 
taking their guns with them, de- 
spite its age-long tradition and 
in the face of drum -head courts 
martial, they now permitted ttie 
Soviet state to separate them 
again from families they had 
not seen for three years or more. 
From a few thousand men early 
in 1918 the Ited Army grew to 
five millions by 1920. 

The fight was also against 
starvation. In 1918 the bread ra- 
tion in Moscow and Leningrad 
fell to an eighth of a pound ev- 
ery other day. There were days 
when nope was available at alL 
The government organized Com- 
mittees of the Poor Peasantry. 
They were given additional land 
and implements from the great 
estates in return for helping au- 
thorities ferret out grain hidden 
by the kulaks. 

The Committees of the Poor 
Peasantry existed only during 
the latter half of 1918. From 
January 24, 1919, there went into 
effect the surplus appropriation 
system, under which all produce 
above the absolute minimum 
needed for the peasant's own 
family was salable to the gov- 
ernment at fixed prices. This 
measure was accompanied by 
the nationalization of small 
manufacturing and the g^rain 
trade (in addition to the pre- 
vious socialization of "large en- 
terprises). These laws, plus the 
introduction of compulsory labor 
service for persons of all class- 
es, regardles sof their mein&, 
came to be known as "War Com- 
munism." ''

The Council on African Affairs, 
Inc., of which Paul Robeson is 
chairman and Dr. Wr. W. E. B. 
Du Bois, vice-chairman, has is- 
sued a statement on its stand on 
the Korean situation, so vigorous 
and heartening that we are glad 
to share it with our readers. The 
stateme t was written by Dr. 
Du Bois. It is entitled "A Pro- 
test and a Plea." 

A Protest and a Pl^ 

In this deepening crisis of 
world affairs, the Council on Af- 
rican Affairs wishes to state its 
own position and that of many 
friends who agree with it. 

iWe stand for Peace. We believe 
that the time is past for settling 
the grave social and political 
problems of the world by force. 
We subscribe whole-heartedly to 
the swellirvg world-wide declara- 
tion against the use of the atom 
bomb at any time by any civil- 
ized nation. 

To every objection of this sort 
here in America, we are given 
one answer: Communism. And 
this is the ans\yer not only in 
the fatal beginning of a third 
World War, but to every possible 
question of domestic policy or 
plan. Always comes the same 

answef and the same refusal to 
consider or allow appeal to facts. 
Today, in the United States, we 
cannot discuss flood control or 
natural resources, education or 
health, unemployment" or low 
wages, or discrimination, lynch- 
ing and justice in the courts, 
without straightway being called 
disloyal traitors and plotters of 
revolution. The nation is jailing 
men guiltless of crime, driving 
the sensitive to suicide, and de- 
priving honest men from earning 
a living. 

Nevertheless, we maintain that 
it is not treason for us to protest 
against using black soldiers to 
reduce free people to slavery. It 
is not yet treason to work for 

We demand therefore for Kdr- 
ea, as for Africa and tlte op- 
pressed peoples of the earth, the 
opportunity to decide what gov- 
ernment they will or will not eh- 
dure. We deny the right Of 
Americans to compel by force the 
earth to think and act like this 
country and to submit to that 
rule of organized wealth which 
is strangling freedom in this our 
own land.

Friday, A«9«st 11. 1950— The 

t- ' 




Dedicated to JOHN KINLOCH who gave his life fighting for democracy. 




Instead of a letter to his "Aunt 
Charlotta" this week, the Eagle 
is publishing a letter and a 
story which John Kinloch wrote 
for his mother on her birthday, 

for the Heart. 

• • • 

Mom. do you remember the 
short story I read you one night 
when we lived at 258 West 136th 
street, — the one that told about 
the two "sainted" old ladies, ex- 
shop lifters, who brought cheer 
and prosperity to a little town 
in Northern Maine? Remember, 
lorn, how they gave the to^^n a 
inovie house because they want- 
ed to see some pictures? How 
they gave it a hospital, a new 
library a radio station, a new 
welfare center. At the end of the 
story, if you recall, the two eld- 
erly ladies had to run away be- 
cabise G-men were on their trail. 
The townspeople immediately 
suspected a latter day ascension, 
sainted the ladies, and planned 
an- annual celebration of their 
ho^r coming to Marysville. 

I will never forget the fun we 
had enjoying this story. How we 
laughed over the cunning de- 
ception of the old ladies and 
how touched we were over their 
"regeneration." Seldom does a 
week go by that I don't think 
of the warmth and gayety of that 

What happened to the old 
lilies has always been a ques- 
tion that has bothered me. And 
m^ybe it has iKKhered you. too. 
So i will attempt to answer it: 
Tb« Betvm o< the Sointed 
Sisten of Marysrille 

The story, if you remember, 
was a seven-day wonder. It did 
more for the- circulation of U. S. 
rtewspapers than Edward and 
Wally or the declaration of 
World War II. It was an earth - 
uake that shook the foundations 
the entire network of law en- 
orcement agencies supported by 
this government. You all know 
about its sensational climax. 
Most of you heard it on your 

But the whole stoty has never 
been told. Not. at least, until 
now. And here goes: 
" The stars hung like icy dagger 
points in the frigid sky over 
Marysville. First snow had al- 
ready fallen 2 miles away, on the 
Canadian side, and winter was 
at last tiptoeing across the 
border. It is a time that all the 
North country loves. Summer's 
remnants are still visible on the 
stately New England trees and a 
hesitating heat still beats down 
at high noon. But the earth's 
langourous slumber is ending. 
Immense and vital, winter 
•weeps doiwn from the Arctic, 
brashly hinting of the rage to 

Sumhier is too polite. It is a 
resting spell between the great 
annual contest of the elements. 
This night was tense and brittle 
in anticipation of the bejeu 
ferocity to come . . . the flashing 
volcano of wind, snow and ice 
which kills the weak of the 
wilderness, which is like a 
solemn and tremendous rite of 
purificating stretching from 
Nome N> Laibrador, from the Pole 
to Albany. 

Logically, young Patrick 
Gabille should have been a very 
happy man. Yesterday he had 
been made Sheriff of Mary's 
ty. today he had handled his 

St case in that lordly position, 

I tonight he should propose to 

Mam'selle Danielle Heureuse, 
j whose eyes were clear and deep 
[like a night in the woods, who 
I had been to Quebec and Boston 

and who was undoubtedly the 
,most beautiful woman which a 

good union of French -Irish blood 
I had ever produced. 

But young Patrick Gabille was 

not happy. 
He was unhappy in two ways. 

First, there was the familiar un- 
1 happiness of the man about to 
I propose, the fear of refusal. Then 
I there was another, fiercer un- 
j happiness. 


\ Danielle was magnificent that 
I night. The cold snap had reaped 
\ a harvest of scarlet blossoms in 
I her cheeks and her ' brown hair 
j was alive in the glow of the 
I Heureuse fire place. Mere et 
I Pere had disreetly found urgent 
i busirwss at a neighbor's home 
[when Patrick Gabille came visit- 

For a long time, they had 
talked of this and that; but now 
they were silent. Suddenly Pat- 
rick was saying the thing he had 
I come to say. 

i "I have always loved you. 
j Danny, since we were children. 
[ just as I have always wanted to 
j be Sheriff of Maiy's county. I 
: am now able to support a wife 
j and a family. For that, for me, 
! there is no one but you. Danny." 
j He said this in the curious, digni- 
fied manner of a man who is 
well rehearsed. 

Patrick steeled himself for 
Danny's answer, listening as for 
; the crack of doom. 

^ "Patrick." she said with the 

shade of French accent which 

the town's best education ha-d 

I never cured, "you have always 

' known the answer to this. Yes. of 

' course. I am yours forever as I 

have alwavs been." 
I Patrick kissed his bride-to-be 

! with precision. 

Now she was rattling away

have won their victory. 

"We can be married at the fes- 
tival of the Sainted Sisters. It is 
the fifth celebration and the 
Archbishop from Quebec has said 
he will come. We will be mar-

One week is time enough to pre-

"I shall wear my mother's 
wedding gown — the lace is 150 
years old. they say. Oh. Patreeek, 
— why is it that the Sheriff he 
does not wear a uniform? Think 
of it: We shall be the first to 
marry at the festival!" 

Patrick's other unhappiness was 
upon him. He sat glumly staring 
at the floor, into the fire which 
sent ghoulish shadows careening 
about the brief Heureuse parlor. 

"Patreeek," asked Danny gent- 
ly, "what is the matter?" 

"We cannot be married at the

"There will be no festival be- 
cause there are no sainted sisters. 
They were not from heaven, 
Danny^ they were from Brooklyn. 

"Remember the car which was 
found in the river on the day 
of the first festival? It was theirs, 
— a get-away car. Danny, all 
these years we have loved the 
memory of two old ladies who 

are wanted in every town from 
Portsmouth to Boston." 

"But, Patreeek. what for?" The 
blood had drained from Danny's 
pretty face. 

"Shop lifting. Stealing things 
from the counters of stores. They 
had done so for many years. They 
have /now been caught in New 
York City, the money they have 
stolen traced to Marysville. To 
place them in jail, it is necessary 
only for me to identify them as 
the Sainted Sisters who spent 
$60,000 in Marysville within three 

Danny was aghast, but her 
face hardened with quick deler- 

"Oh. but you cannot. Patreeek! 
Remember how it was here be- 
fore they came? There was al- 
ways fighting amongst ourselves. 
Edmond Hewlett and his family 
had never spoken to Jacques 
Dupreau and his family, the 
poor were on relief, not respon- 
sible workers as today. Patreeek. 
it was not so much the hospital 
or the library or any of that 
which those old ladies brought 
to Marysville, — it was the spirit 
of Love! 

"Remember old Cassie Def- 
range who lived outside of town 
and spoke to no one? They visit- 
ed him and talked to him and 
tended him the night he died. 
And the O'Rourke's who nearly 
starved and nobody in the town 
knew of it^-or <lid anything about 
it — except them. "Sainted Sisters.' 
indeed, Patreeek!" 

Danny's eyes flashed sharply. 

"Why the festival is a second 
Christmas — and it's spreading. 
Next year they plan to celehrate 
it at Mauvois, across the border. 
They won't be celebrating any 
'shop lifters', as you say. They 
will be celebrating the love and 
kindness they brought to us all.

much did you sink into this 

"All my life's savings, 4.000 
dollars," Patrick answered sim- 

'This is the SCREWIEST thing 
I ever heard!" i 

Police Inspector O'Connor 
winced. I should have known, he 
told himself. 10.000 cases for the 
FBI to check on and they pick 
this one. It was nice, thought the 
inspector pitifully, being a big 
shot. To pound a beat now would 
be an awful letdown. Would the 
return call from Washington ever 
come . . .? 


Just as well answer it. 

"New York police? O'Connor?" 
crackled the efficient voice' of 
FBI director Nathaniel Garibaldi 
Wilcox. . 

"Uh-ruh." Meekly. 

"O'Connor. I have just read the 
statement you gave my assistant. 
Herb West. Are you nuts?" 

"No. sir. I don't know. sir-I" 

"Do you realize that those old 
ladies established a radio sta- 
tion in Marysville — two miles 
from a U. S. border. Why. this is 
the hottest espionage lead we've 
had in months. And you tell us 
j something ab6ut dropping the 
case because of a sainted soine-

"Well, you see. the Sheriff of

was here — " 

"O'Connor. I want the whole

"Well," responded Patrick, "you

Friday night, August 4th was 
a gala night chuck full of fun 
and merriment for many who 
attended the opening of the good 
Count Basie and his swinging 
sextet. Your columnist was part 
of a gay party which included 
such personalities as Dorothy 
Duvall, Petey Bradford, and Edith 
McLynn. Had a ringside table 
which gave a good view of the 
show and the people entering 
and leaving during the course 
of the evening. A real terrific 
show headed by such perscmali- 
ties as Warden Gray, an expert 
artist of tenor sax melody, and 
Damita Jo, thrush -voiced lovely, 
were accepted by the spectators 
with real ovation. Seen viewing 
the show here and there ^vas 
Barbara- Britton, movie star, plus 
many others of Hollywood fame. 
Bill Slaton and Nellie Becker, 
Billy Benfield, Toni Sheen, Mat-

Proved to be a very successful 
afternoon well spent. The new 
Metropolitan Mortuary, 1311 
South Central Ave., staged its of- 
ficial opening to the public on 
Sunday, August 6th, from the 
hours of 4 to 7 p. m. During my 
stay at the register book noticed 
that many of the prominent busi- 
nesses around town sent repre- 
sentatives to ^ow their encour- 
agement. The hostesses for the 
afternoon included the wives of 
the board members and a few 
of their friends. The ladies were 
smartly gowned in evening 
dresses of various pastel colors 
and made a picture of loveliness. 
The embal.Tiing room Is well 
worth mention which includes 
the very latest in equipment. 
Father H. Randolph Moore of St. 
Philip's Episcopal Church per- 
formed the dedication ceremony 
which was very impressive. A 
suggested name for the chapel 
was "All Souls Chapel."

Negro Ait Committee Demands 
Rassport Re-Issue For Robeson 

NEW YORK CITY— Secretary of 
State Dean Acheson was urged 
to use the authority of his of- 
fice in seeing that Paul Robe- 
son's passport is re -issued by the 
Committee for the Negro in the 
Arts in a letter signed by its 
executive secretary, Rufh Jett. 
In commenting on the extraordi- 
nary step in marking Mr. Robe- 
son's passport "null and void." 
Miss Jett said: We fear this un- 
precedented action paves the way 
for preventing Negro artists, who 
detest discrimination and segre- 

gation which- they meet most 
often in the United States, from 

traveling abroad where th^ 

find the warmest receptions". She 

further stated: "We believe that 

the denial <^ the right to earn 

a living at one's chosen craft or 

profession is enslavement. . . . 

The cancellation of Mr. Robeson's 

passport can gJve comfort only 

jto the Ku Klux Klan and other

spond to the questionnaire. 

Throughout -^tre nation reports

when summoned. Locally close 
to 100 candidates reportedly did 
not show up for their pre-induc-

Earl Bostic 
Scores In 
Sax Battle 

NEW YORK — Broadway wit- 
nessed one of the most terrific 
music battles of the past decade 
during last week as two ot the 
nation's top saxaphone virtuosos 
— both fonner members of the 
Lionel Hampton agg^regation — 
put their artistry on display to 
the delight of hundreds of hep 
music fans at popular Bop City. 
The two were stomp king Earl 
Bosttc and hard driving Al Sears. 

Sears» always a ^disciple of the 
hard driving school, proved 
something of a surprise by fea- 
turing considerable relaxed num- 

Bostic, on the other hand^ un- 
veiled his total bag of showman- 
ship tricks And therein lay the 
difference, which gave him the 
■light edge he enjoyed. 

The dual engagement of the 
two baiKis in the Broadway spot, 
with Slam Stewart sandwiched 
between them, will probably re- 
sult in a nation-wide barnstorm- 
ing trip with the two brilliant 
musicians battling it out night 
after night.

20 Pfennigs 

The greatest war in the history of mankind came to an end at 1 a, m. this morniilg (ETO time) 
when the United States, the Soviet Union, China and Great Britain officially announced that Japan 
had surrendered unconditionally. * I 

The end came after a flurry of diplomatic messages by Tokyo that it was ready to surrender. 

The official surrender terms as an- 
^ounced by President Truman at a 
special White House press conference 
at 7 p.m. EWT (1 a.m. ETO time), and 
duplicated by the Russian, Chinese and 
British governments, include the un- 
conditional surre^er of Japan, ac- 
cording to the Potsdam Declaration. 


The World Wax Ended

No more Jimcrow? 

A better America for our children? 
Peace? : 



Gen. Douglas MacArthur as Supreme Allied Commander 
will accept the surrender when arrangements arc completed. 
Meanwhile, Allied armed forces were ordered to cease offensive 

The President said that "the proclamation of Victoty Day 
must wait iq»on the fonnal signins of the surrender terms by 

He then said that Selective Service wovid take immediate 
steps to slash induction of draftees from 80.000 to 50,000 a 
month. Mr. Truman added that only men under 26 will be drafted 
from now on. 

Mr. Truman read a formal message relayed from IHirohito 
through the Swiss Government in which Japan pledged to sur- 
render on the conditions set by the U. S., Russia, Great Britain 
and China. The President, through Secretary of States James 
F. Byrnes, also sent an order to the Japanese Government to 
cease hostilities on all fronts. 

Japan's official reply to the surrender terms was delivered to 
Secretary Byrnes, at the State Department. Byrnes left immediately 
for the White House. The document was delivered by M. Grasslin, 
the Swiss Charge d'Affaires. 

When the ^wiss official came out, reporters asked: "Was it the 
note you took in?" With a big smile, Grasslin nodded confirmatimi. 
A short time later, the reporters ** 

were called in, and Mr. Truman 
made the following announce- 

"I have received this afternotm 
a message from the Japanese 
Government in reply to the mes- 
sage forwarded to that govern- 
ment by the Secretary of State 
pn Aug. 11. I deem this reply a 
full acceptance of the Potsdam 
Declaration which s^cified the 
anconditi<mal surrender of 

In the Japanese reply, the 

President continued, "there is no 
qualification." Arrangements are 
being speeded now for the formal 
signing of the surrender terms, 
he added. 

The Japanese emp«<(»- in his 
reply said that he was ready to 
order his fwces "wherever lo- 
cated" to stop fighting, and con- 
tinued that he was prepared "to 
issue such other orders as may 
toe required by the Supreme Com- 
mander ....

munity farewell salute to Scott.

Ewart Guiltier, Top Trade Unionist, 
Visits Public Workers Unions I 

Ewart Guinier is a realist. He 
would not think of himself as 
a symbol, for his life is lived on 
a steady beat of integration, yet 
as a Negro who holds the high- 
est trade union position ever held* 
by a member of his race. E>wart 
Guinier is a vital factor in the 
turbulent struggle the Negro peo- 
ple are waging to throw off the 
yoke of false leadership and 
outspokenly content for full citi- 
zenship rights. 

In Loc Angeles on one step of 
a national tour, in the course of 
which he will check on the un- 
derstanding of the basic policies 
of the United Public Workers of 
which he is the International 
Secretary -Treasurer, Guinier sees 
the refusol of the City Council to 
grant check-off i»rivileges to the 
Public Workers union here as an 
example of pure discrimination... 
Hits Council 

He sees the action of the City 
Council . in voting down the

Hartleyism that is so prevalent, 
and he calls upon whi^ workers 
to support the Public Workers in 
their demand. 

"Every time white worjcers 
have deserted the fight for Negro 
rights, white workers have lost 
ground." he points out. 

Guinier is proud of the Negro- 
white workers' unity he sees 
here as well as elsewhere in the 

nation. "There may be some un- 
expressed weakening in that 
unity," he admits, "but it is our 
task to solidify the ranks against 
such unexpressed weakening." 

Diserimincrtion in the Federal 
Bureau of Engroring which keeps 
Negro Veterans from becoming 
plate printers is one of the major 
projects on which he is workiag. 

Negroes have assisted in plate 
printing for 300 years, he points 
oiit, yet there has" never been a 
single Negro printer or appentice 
plate printer. 

•A special examination for Ne- 
groes held recently might remedy 
this, but enemies of fair employ- 
ment have succeeded in having 
a bill passed in the House that 
will nullify the affected of the 
examination. It is now in the 
Senate (No. 30.50), and Guinier 
urges protests against its pas- 

Top Leoders 

Approximately one third of the 
membership of the Public Work- 
ers, operating in 27 states, is Ne- 
gro. Of a total of 60.000' members 
20,000 are Negroes. That repre- 
sents more than the combined 
total membership of A. Phillip 
Randolph's Pullman Porters, and 
Willard Townsend's Red Caps 
union. These figures make it un- 
derstanable why Ewart Guinier 
is the most important Negro 
labor leader in the nation.

scampered home an easy 15- 
round decision winner over back-

defense of his 147ipound crown 
because of the wieight- making 
ordeal. * 

Referee Paul Cavalier gave the 
Harlem Sugar Man every round 
but two, with one' for Fusari and 
one even. ' 

P*ighting for the Damon Run- 
yon Cancer Fund, Robinson gave 
a brilliant exhibition of his mas- 
terful boxing skill against the 
blond challenger frbm Irvington, 
N. J., before a calpacity 30,000

dog escaped the knockout that 
was predicted but that's about 
all he did. Fusari weighed 
145%. 1 

Sugar Ray nullified Fusari's

the capable hands of^, Sammy

the capable assistance of an ar- 
ray of backs and linemen read-

The attendance was estimated 
at 6500. 

A crowd of 5950 fans pafd $11.- 
437.50 to watch the affair at

Salas opened the encounter by

this year's squad. 


Both Va.squez and Garcia made 
names at the Legion fn 1918. 
Vasquez was voted the out.stand- 
ing young boxer of 1918 as a 
pro and Garr-ia won the Golden 
Gloves title the same year at 

Last year fans saw little of 
Vazquez clue to the dispute he- 
tvvot^n Hollywood and the Man- 
agers' Association. Garcia is in 
the spotlight after stopping; 

i Harold Dado for the California 
featherweight title. What made 
CJarcia's wyi .so outstanding was 

jthe fact that Dade had met 
Willie Pep. Sammy Saddler and 
Ortiz and wasn't kayoed. Garcia 
has lost but once in 22 pro fights. 

Matchmaker Cal. Working has 
has Bi^rnard Docusen booked for 
next week. His opponent may be 
Milo Savage who has given Big 
Duke tv,\o close fights.

Chavez box Friday's six and the 
special will be Ray Ascosta and 
Gil Chavez. Other fours are 
Rocky Slater vs Jackie Condon,

Hard-Hittli^ Larry Doby On Batting Spree 

CLEVEI*ANDf- American 
League pitchers art feeling the 
after-effects of Llarry Doby's 
near- tragic skulling of some two 
weeks ago. 

Since Brooklyn's Joe Hatten 
knocked Doby uncolnscious with 
a pitch to the head in a July 24 
exhibition game at Ebbets Field, 
no pitcher has been safe from 
Larry's bludgeoning bat. 

In the 11 games the Cleveland 
Negro outfielder has played 

since the accident, he has 
pounded out nine home runs, 
driven in 20 and batted .462. His 
nine homers during that hot 

spree matched his entire output 
for the first 86 games. 

Doby tried his utmost to give 
the Indians* a sweep of their 
doubleheader with St. Louis Wed- 
nesday. He slammed two home 
runs and three doubles to drive 
in five runs. The best the Tribe 

could do, however, was to split 
Ihe two games. 

Cleevland won the opener, 4-3, 
with Doby's two homer aocourtt- 
ing for all "the runs. The 
Browns bounced back- to win the 
second game, 10-8. Doby belted 
three doubles. 

The split caused the third 
place Indians to lose a half 
game to both the pace-setting 
Detroit Tigers and runner-up

Music Critie ot tbe CUif oraia ESffle 

NEW YORK. Aug. 1— New York 
critics have given serious note 
1o the revival performances of 
the Gian-Cark) Menotti's drama 

or musical 
play, "The Me- 
dium," as the 
wishes it to be 
known, in 
which Zelma 
Watson George 
(known in Los 
Angeles as 
Zelma Watson 
Duke) has the 

title role. This Mz. McllteU 
writer, only recently returned 
from Europe, found the new 
opera form both exciting and ex- 
tremely coherei^L 

The work is currently playing 
in New York's Arena Theatre on 
47th street off Broadway, and^ 
features the antics of a half- 
crazed, drunken medium whose 
lust for money through bogus 
seances drives her insane with 
tear. S^lma George, the first 
Negro to play this role on Broad- 
way, carries the role well, al- 
though there were moments 
when we felt a definite lack of 
▼oice c(Mitr(^ The clever stag- 
ing, which employs no stage, 
utilizes a cleared spaqe in the 
center of a large room, around 
which are many chairs, arranged 
in tiers. These devices accentu- 
ated by unusual lighting, form 
the background for the opus. 
The musical accompaniment is 
played on two pianos k)cated in 
the balcony. 

We understand that Mrs. 
George has perfonned the role 
67 times in a Cleveland produc- 
ti<m sponsored by the Karamu 
Lyric Theatre. Chandler Cowles, 
the New York producer, was so 
impressed that he immediately 
brought her to Mr. MenOtt's at- 

Having known Mrs. George at 
Avalon Center, Los Angeles, we 
were pleasantly surprised to 
know of her success here, and 
to see her widening her vistas 
Into more exciting medias.

Scores Hit in Concert 

Concert goers of Lake Geneva, 
Wis., were completely conquered, 
by young Los Angeles basso, 
William de Valentine. The only 
flaw in the concert was the ar- 
rival of so many late-comers. 
With his winning personality, 
the young artist soon had his 
audience in the palm of his 

de Valentine is gifted with an 
unusual flair for singing florid 
music, and his trill is the equal 
of any soprano. At the close of 
Mozart's Alleluia the audience 
rose to its feet with loud bravos 
— ^we have an artist in William 
de Valentine.

Kiidoch's Letters 

fContinued irom Page 9) 
dential study of the White House. 
It is an experience I shall never 
forget. Every little ripple of con- 
versation there that day is as 
familiar to me as my ABC's. 

Seated in his shirt sleeves at 
a broad mahogany desk at .one 
end of the room was the Presi- 
dent. Microphones hid half his 
chin like some Disney mechan- 
ical forest. Next to the desk stood 
two quaint old ladies. Next to 
them, the Secretary of State, who 
kept assuring the chief executive 
that he was "all wrong," that he 
should send somebody to jail 
"right off, without a moment's' 
hesitation." The Secretary like 
this phrase. He repeated it every 
minute or so. George Hendricks, 
Jack Andrews, Herb West. O'Con- 
nor, this unknown Maine Sheriff, 
Patrick Gabille. and his girl 
friends completed the picture. 
Down my way here the two other 
reporters, Kelly of the Post and 
Baker of AP. Over us all crawled 
a .young army of radio tech- 

Just before broadcast time 
there was a slight flurry. The 
President wanted a watch on tH» 
desk. The Secretary of State ac- 
comodated with his 21 jewel 
biscuit. Everything quieted down. 
The President began to speak. 

One thing that is dear, • 
Dearer than life itself; — " 
And for that I fear. -. - - 

Tt is our baby son 

That you have never seen. 
So you see, my deatr. 

For his lite I'fear. 

When he grows to be a man 

War shall not be then, 
And, his wife and child shall live 
In a better world. It is coming, 
I believe. 

Vera Simon 


Oh! I like my little nest! 
It is cozy. There I rest. 
It is high up on the tree. 
So the people can't see me. 

When I hatch my birdies there 
I haven't got much room to spare, 
I am sitting 'way up high. 
Almost reaching to the sky! 

And as soon as they grow spry. 
One by one then they will fly. 
They will take a little flight, 
Stretching to the sunshine light. 

I will fly with them to guide. 
As a mother by their side. 
On the mountains they will rest, 
Then will fly back to our jiest. 
Vera Simon 

Well, there is no need in go- 
ing over that. You all remember 
- it . . . how the President ex- 
plained the whole case, how he 
told of the festival of the Sainted 
Sisters, which, by a concidence. 
Was in progress at the very mo- 
ment of his broadcast, how he 
gave thf Presidential blessing to 
all the enforcement officers who 
had refused to destroy the dream 
held so dear by Marysville. Me. 

But the paragraphs which have 
become 'engraved on my mind in 
letters of fire,' as the old boys 
used to say, were right at the 
end. Honest, I've gotthem rnem- 
ized. like the Gettysburg Ad- 
dress or Lou Gerig's last speech 
in the Yankee stadium or the pre- 
amble to the Constitution. 


"My good friend and earnest 
fellow worker, the Secretary of 
State, believes that law enforce- 
ment has been polluted in this 
case. I do not. 

"My friends, so long as the of- 
ficials of the United States gov- 
ernment have a sense of justice 
which transcends the letter of 
orized, like the Gettysburg Ad- 
the law, which — in a love and 
understanding of their fellow 
man — is grounded in the basic 
truths of Christianity, we can 
fear no pollution and no corrup- 

"I have revealed the secret of 
the Sainted Sisters of Marysville 
■ only after mature deliberation. I 
have not planned to destroy the 
dream which the townspeople 
have so carefully guarded. In- 
stead.^ I believe that this 'dream' 
should be confined to one little 
town in Northern Maine, but 
that it should be brought to the 
entire nation, the whole world. 

"In it, my friends, is seen the 
far-off glimmerings of our de- 
liverance from bondage: the 
bondage of hatred, greed and 
prejudice. The two olti ladies 
^standing here next to me gave 
their whole loot to the city of 
^ Marysville to make it a happier 
"^Jlgcp^in which to live. They 
gave "V" great deal more. They 
gave a rich and unselfish, love, 
one w^ich' the town, will never 
forget-^— one which I hope the na- 
tion will never forget 

"I hereby decree a national 
holiday to celebrate the return of 
the Sainted Sisters of Marys- 


I want to live in California, 
I Where I can sleep out nights. 
1 Where the nights are dry and 
I warm 

And the days are pleasant. 
! bright. 

On the mountains and the valley 
There is sunshine all day long. 

And this is just what I like. 
I will- live ther^ very long. 

I And the house that I will live in 
I On the mountains 'way up 
: high! 

j There is no place like California. 
I All day long is blue the sky. 

All the groves that I will find 

Oh! Imagine what it's like! 
And the first place I would go to 

Is Hollywood. Believe me. Mike. 

There" are poor, and there are 
But there is a little switch. 
For the rich, it is the land 

With its beauty, with its 

There are oil wells, there is fuel. 

But who owns them? They are 
And the flowers! And the trees! 

Oh. there are so many bees. 

To California I will go. 

There is no one to tell me ..No." 
Even if I have to hike. 

I hope vou'U help me, Brother 

Vera Simon 



When I think of ywi. 
That you are far away, 

Then It seems to me ; 
That we Just met today^ 

When I think of you 
And the day we parted, 

I still hear your voice. 
The beating of your heart 

But .you left with me . , 



No matter what the brand I'm

I'll always find unsmoked -tobacco

lo Asttsr vou 


Most of us have formed regu- 
lar habits, our lives are careful- 
ly organized. We have our meal 
time, our work time and our rest 
tione. Why, then, should we be 
careless about our time to pray? 

It is better to have 15 minutes 
unhurried time for prayer, than 
a distracted hour; we must con- 
centrate upon it, and become ab- 
sorbed by it, if we are to accom- 
plish anything. 

Whether you wish to pray in 
the morning, noon or night . . . 
or all three times of day, be 
sure that you are not guilty of 
not spending any time giving 

thank to God.

Cosmo, a public interracial 
club, meets Wednesdays, 7:30 
p.m., at 2180 W. Adams. 


Solution to last week's puz- 
zle: 1 R Q5. KxR: T Q 4. 

This truly baffling problem is 
by L. N. De Jong. White: N KR7: 
B-QN: Rs QR4 and 5; Q QN4: 
K-QR. Black: Ps K2 and 3; R- 
KB; Q Q4: K K4. 

Bv' unanimous vote Cosmo 
members took the initiative in 
launching a nationwide protest 
against the barring of W. A. 
Scott, son of the founder of The 
Atlanta Etaily World, from the 
annual Southern Chess Associa- 
tion Tournament in North Caro- 
lina in July. Scott was invited to 
play, but chess officials backed 
down and failed to defend his 
rights when bigots and the 
Washington Duke Hotel in Dur- 
ham objected. Never before has 
chess been degraded by white 
supremacist tactics, and the bat- 
tling response had to come im- 
mediately before precedent be- 
came set. 

It was logical that Cosmo 
should assume the lead in mo- 
bilizing the democratic forces 
throughout chesdom. with the 
demand that SCA players be sire- 
pended from national tourna- 
ments until they cease discrim- 
ination. There are several col- 
ored clubs in the U. S. that 
might have stepped forward to 
head up the battle, but Cosmo 
as the nation's only interracial 
club was in a favored position. 
Copies of our August Bulletin, 
carrying the story and asking 
for support, have been mailed to 
hundreds of leading players in 
cities and towns in every state. 

The principle of the chess un- 
ity of all peoples which Cosmo 
has successfully upheld locally 
for two years we are prepared 
to defend on a wider arena. Even 
if we should fail, racism in chess 
nas been exposed and denounced 
from a national tribunal — it can 
not get by unchallenged. 

In this astounding game the 
great Reshevsky sacrifices two 
pieces and has alt the rest si- 
multaneously in take — ^yet wins!

'YM' And W 
Join Swim 

The goal of capacity use of the 
swimming pool at 28th Street 
YMCA received a boost this week 
week when the Woodlawn YWCA 
decided to join forces with the 
YMC.\ committee in promoting 
the present "water-proofing" 
campaign. The YWCA will con- 
tinue to encourage the use of 
the pool by women especially on 
Monday evenings from 7 to 8 for 
beginners. Both organizations be- 
lieve that adults as well. as youth 
should be "water- proffed" to the 
extent that they can l>e safe in 
the water. 

The full adult swimming pro- 
gram at 28th Street this month 
opens the pool on Monday, 
Wednesday and Friday evenings 
from 7 to 10 o'clock with the 
first hour donated to instruction. 

Scout Council 
Awarded Trophy 
For Excellence 

Winning the award for the 
third time, the George Washing- 
ton District of the Los Angeles 
Area Boy Scout Council has re- 
ceived the John Henry Russell 
trophy for excellence in several 
phases of Scouting. 

Judge W. Turney Fox. vice-

tivities, presented the trophy to 
Ray Bartee, chairman of George 
Washington district, at a meet- 
ing of the Council held lost 
Thursday at the Automobile Club 
pf Southern California. 

Established by a past president 
of the Council at the conclusion 
of his term of office, the John 
Henry Russell trophy is award- 
ed bi-annually to the district 
scoring the most points on such 
things as unit and boy member- 
ship, honor unit accomplish- 
ments, unit campaign, percent- 
age of trained Jeadetship, active 
participation of neighborhood 
commissioners, and other Scout- 
ing activities. 

Fun Club at YMCA 

Parents of boys 9 to 15 are 
finding the 28th Street YMCA 
Summer Fun Club a cure for 
headaches arising from junior's 
summer vacation. Instead of 
having him and his friends or 
both underfoot or worrying about 
them if our of sight an increas- 
ing number of wise parents are 
taking advantage of the "Y's" 
Summer Fun Club ' and send 
junior to 28th Street YMCA Mon- 
day through Friday from 9 to 5. 
It is a load off their minds and 
junior loves it.

Mrs. Albert Maltz, wife of Al- 
bert Maltz of the Hollywood Ten, 
gave the thrilling story of the 
lives of those prisoners of con- 
science before the convention of 
the State Independent Progres- 
sive Party in Sacramento last 
weekend. The address follows: 

If events had been otherwise, 
it is quite possible that Albert 
Maltz would have been here to- 
day tqspeak to you in behalf of 
these^^ew political prisoners, 
the twenty-three men and wom- 
en in eight Federal prisons. But 
he is one of them. He has been 
sifting gravel for the water fil- 
tering plant at Mill Point, West 
Virginia, this past week with 
Edward Dynstryka. John Howard 
Law^on has been counting eggs 
in the prison storeroom at Ash- 
land. Virginia. He also checks 
in the 100 pounds sacks of sugar 
which Dalton Trumbo moves. 

So I am here in their stead. I 
will discuss with you what these 
jailings mean. How does it con- 
cern the Independent Progressive 
Party, and you, personally, that 
twenty-three American citizens 
are in jail, and more are in the 
courts, for defiance of the Un- 
American Activities Committee? 

What makes these cases im- 
portant? The sentences are not 
savage, although Carl Marzani 
is serving three years, and most 
of the Hollywood Ten got the 
maximum sentence under the 
law. But these sentences are 
mild if we think that Tom 
Mooney spent a big chunk of his 
life behind bars; that Sacco and 
Vanzetti lost life itself. 

The treatment that the men 
are receiving is not brutal. It 
certainly is wasteful of the spe- 
cial gifts of these men and 
women, but it is not excessively 
hard. Our Hollywood Ten, at 
least, are getting the very same 
treatment as congressmen who 
accepted bribes or stole from the 
public funds. 

Nor is the significance of these 
cases a matter of frame-up and 
miscarriage of justice. The wife 
of Willie McGee might stand 
here today with equal right, to 
represent the Negro people, liv- 
ing for centuries now, in fear 6f 
the rape charge and the lynch 
law. Or Harry Bridges' wife 
might stand here to detail the 
persecution of a fighting labor 
leader by a cabal of ship own- 
ers, hired perjurers, and officers 
of our government. Since I wrote 
this, he has been jailed, too. 

My first experience in the la- 
bor movement was in a strike in 
Passaic, New Jersey. From the 
phrase "Jersey Justice" I had 
my early lessons that the law is 
not impartial, that Judges are 
not enthroned above the politi- 
cal, economic, and racial pas- 
sions of their time, that the 
democratic processes are relative 
and partial, and must be fought 
for if they are to exist at all. 

So I do not come to you in 
naivete, for help for my hus- 
band, only, or for other useful 
people, uselessly jailed. These 
jailings have a different, a 
unique character, and they must 
be understood for what they are. 

Let me speak first of the Hol- 
lywood Ten, since this is closest 
to me. Our men were subpoenaed 
in the F^ll of 1947. In that au- 
tum» the Truman doctrine was 
new, and the Marshall Plan had 
just been announced. Back in 
those days, one practically never

heard the words "cold war." 
That was a phrase in labor pa- 
pers ,and some liberal columns. 
It never appeared in newspaper 
headlines — much less Jn State 
documents. Yet at this time — 
vyhen most Americans had not 
even heard the phrase, our Ten 
men declared that their sub- 
ipoenas had this meaning — the 
beginning of a drive to tie the 
movies to the needs of a cold 
war — to chain this great medium 
of education and propaganda to 
a war drive. 

This interpretation seemed a 
bit .fantastic then, to many peo- 
ple. But the hearings them- 
selves added evidence. The Com- 
mittee members pounded away 
at the movie producers — "Why 
did you make 'Mission to Mos- 
cow'? Why did you do 'Song of 
Russia"? When will you make 
an anti-Communist picture?" At 
the end of the third day's testi- 
mony, Parnell Thomas s'a i d 
bluntly, "We will make the 
proper suggestions to the pro- 
ducers." And he did and they 
were improper suggestions. The 
blacklist of the Ten was the first 
of them, and with the collabora- 
tion of the banks that own the 
movie industry, these ten men 
have been deprived oJ work for 
nearly three years. -This im- 
proper suggestion partially 
achieved its purpose, intimida- 
tion of the rest of the movie 
makers; and through this a 
stranglehold on the screen. The 
committee's public demand for 
hate movies that would flame 
the Soviet Union as a potential 
enemy, was implemented in se- 
cret through the "pay roll route." 
Thomas put his greedy fingers 
into the public till, and into the 
people's culture* and he stole 
more the second time. He em- 
bezzled what maturiy and hu- 
man dignity there had been in 
American movies. And with 
what a result? 

The' movie producers do not 
dare to openly preach war to the 
peace-loving American people- 
it would be bad for profits. But 
what have they done in these 
past three years? They have 
filled the screen with crime pic- 
tures — with such violence and 
lust that I cannot send my sev- 
en-.year-old daughter into the 
theatre lest she come out trem- 
bling at a shadow in the lobby. 
What have the scenes of torture, 
and blood and anguished fear 
accomplished if not to prepare 
the unthinking to say "Drop the 
bomb, and the sdoner the bet- 
ter," to a Peace Petitioner on the 
street.. If not to prepare the 
American mind for General 
Hershey's call to the nation two 
weeks ago? The man who heads 
Selective Service said. "What we 
need is a new group of killers." 
We did not call for killers in the 
war against Hitler— we needed 
anti-fascist soldiers then, and we 
sought to orient thpm to our just 
purpose. But for the dirty war 
in Korea we need killers, bru- 
talized and filled with prejudice, 
so that they will make "trigger 
happy troops who fire at North 
and South Koreans alike," as the 
correspondents report. In ready- 
ing the killers to use new weap- 
ons that shoot terrible fire and 
even an atom bomb, against the 
people of Korea, the movies have 
done more than their share in 
these three years. 

In the investigation itself I 
heard Parnell Thomas say what 
he later took out of the official 
record; "This investigation is on- 
ly the first of a seven-point pro- 
gram. We will go on to radio, 
publishing, the theatre, educa- 
tion, labor, and government." In 
this announced program, the 
prosecution and blacklisting of 
the Ten was his Big Bertha, and 
the shot he fired out of it was 
the $64 question. With this weap- 
lon and this ammunition other 
avenues of mass dommunicatibn 
have been intimidated and per- 
verted. I know families that 
stopped taking in a morning pa- 
per because of the effect of 
headlines and pictup^ on their 
children. I kriow others that will 
not tolerate the nightly carnage 
on television or ion ^the radio, 

where new blacklisting impends. 
So this is what makes the case 
of the Hollywood Ten unique — 
Not that a regulation was vio- 
lated. As one of the inmates of 
the Washington jail said in won- 
der, "Contempt of Congress, what 
kind of a crime is that?" Not 
that the proceedings mocked 
justice, from the Thomas Com- 
mittee hearings through all the 
courts and Judges. Not that the 
victims have lost their freedom. 
But that through them censor- 
ship and thought control are in- 
tended for the American people, 
and. have closed down upon us 
to some degree. Justice Bran(}eis 
once wrote in- a Supreme Court 
opinion, "Those who won our 'in- 
dependence believed that free- 
dom to think as you will and to 
speak as you think are means 
indispensable to the discovery 
and spread of political truth." Is 
this the climate of freedom in 
America today? We know it is 
not. Taft-Hartley is part of to- 
day's climate — the Mundt-Nixon 
bill and the Hobbes bill threaten 
new storms tomorrow. .Even in 
this climate of manufactured 
hysteria people thinjt as they 
will, but many, many citizens of 
the United States fear to speak 
as they think. This is the unique 
aspect of the case of the Holly- 
wood Ten— that ideas were their 
crime, those means that are 
truly indispensable to the dis- 
covery and spread of truth. 

Now I want to discuss the 
other political prisoners with 
you — how strange this phrase in 
the land that has been the tra- 
ditional refuge from pogroms, 
from Czarist terror, from Nazi 
barbarism. In Federal prisons 
now are eleven members of the 
Board of the Joint Anti -Fascist 
Refugee Committee. Among their 
number are Howard Past, the 
eminent novelist. Dr. Lyman 
Bradley, formerly head of the 
German Department of New 
York University, three physi- 
cians, two attorneys, two labor 
leaders, a business man, and a 
housewife. What was their 
crime? They refused to hand 
over to the Thomas Committee 
the records of their charities to 
refugees from Franco Spain, and 
the names of thousands of 
Americans who provided the j 
money — yours among them, j)os- 
sibly. They challenged the com- 
mittee's right to ask for these 
records. The punitive intent of 
the Committee was all too clear 
to them. It should be clear to us. 
The bloody butcher has not 23, 
but 180,000 political prisoners in 
jails and concentration camps. 
90'''c of them suffer from tuber- 
culosis and heart ailments — the 
stigmata of Fascist prisons. Over 
300,000 Spanish Republicans are 
living in exile. During the last 
war it was well known, and doc- 
umented by the Security Coun- 
cil among other agencies, that 
Franco was the silent, but use- 
ful partner of Hitler. Yet our 
Secretary of State has notified 
Congress that he will press the 
United Nations to admit Franco 
i-nto their company. 

What was the crime of George 
Marshall, chairman of the Civil 
Rights Congress? That he would 
not turn over the records and 
membership lists of his organi- 
zation, which pre- dated the CRC 
and helped to found it. And 
what was the crime of Eugene 
Dennis, besides his politics? 
That he called the very existence 
of the Committee in question, 
because of the poll taxers there 
who do not truly represent their 
states. And that he challenged 
its misuse of the power of Con- 
gress to investigate. 

The twenty-third prisoner is 
Carl Marzani, a talented film 
maker, whose outstanding ser- 
vices during the war earned, 
high praise and many citations^' 
He was accused of concealing 
Communist Party affiliation on 
various army documents and 
convicted of pwjury on the testi- 
mony of two professional anti- 
Communist witnesses, one ex- 
posed as a perjurer in the 
Bridges case, and the other since 
confined in a mental institution. 

What is it that all these cases 

have in common? What is their 
common derwminator? I believe 
it is to be found in their effect 
on our political climate. The 
Un-American Activities Commit- 
tee, with the Truman adminis- 
tration backing up its actions, is 
trying to close the avenues of 
free discussion, to silence all op- 
position to the war ^policies, to 
intimidate those who offer help ' 
to the victims. The cold war is 
leading to the hot war, to the 
total destruction of an atomic 
war. Free men, speaking freely 
and free to organize against it, 
can prevent such a catastrophe. 
This is the common denominator. 
Peace is the common denomi- 

In the case of the Hollywood 
Ten, the Appeals Court itself 
placed the issue in this context 
when it said, and I quote — "In 
the current ideological struggle — 
the motion picture industry plays 
a critically prominent role in 
moulding public opinion." This 
being so, the court concludes, 
the $64 question is not only per- 
tinent but "Indeed, it- is hard to 
envisage how there could be any 
more pertinent question in these 
circumstances." So the Court 
fired the Big Bertha too, with 
the same ammunition. "Are you 
now or have you ever been a 
member of the Communist 

The Court of the World de- 
clares that our struggle for peace 
is the issue of all these cases. 
The other evening I was shown f 
the latest batch of clippings 
about the Hollywood Ten from 
the European press. Two hun- 
dred items — full page stories, 
banner headlines, three coluntin 
pictures gathered from the news- 
papers and magazines all over 
Europe. They contain the record 
of dozens of resolutions from 
unions, film societies, groups of 
intellectuals, protesting the jail- 
ing of the Hollywood Ten. And 
not only of the Ten. The Euro- 
peans in their bitter knowledge 
of how Fascism works, skip over 
the technicalities of these polit- 
ical cases. They know well how 
the winds are blowing when 
writers, artists, scientists, edu- 
cators are jailed on such charges. 
They bombard the American 
Embassies, they hold mass meet- ^ 
ings. they protest these jailings. 
Peace is their deepest concern; 
they recognize these men and 
women as organizers for Peace, 
and they take heart that such 
people exist here, and fight hard 
enough to endure prison for their 
conviction. And they link these 
cases together. In Eastern "Berlin 
there was a great mass meeting 
recently, in a place comparable 
to Madison Square Garden. I 
have a photograph of the event. 
Behind the eminent speakers is 
a great banner — it reads. "Fast, 
Maltz, Bridges — 3 victims of 
American reaction." 

It is good to be gathered in 
convention, meeting our friends 
from other parts of the state, 
feeling the strength of united ac- 
tion. One can feel very lonely 
these days. This loneliness is 
promoted on the air, sold in the 
movies, and ballyhooed in the 
press. Its manufacturers are the 
war makers. "You are alone," 
they say to each one of us. "No 
one fights with you. Since you 
cannot win, surrender! Let us 
have our way." 

I think I have the right to say 
to you. "Don't buy this product! 
It is false and a lie. If you let 
it in it will paralyze like the 
bite of a snake. Protect your san- 
ity and your true patriotism and 
your fighting heart. Protect 
yourself by joining with others 
to return the world to Peace. 


The government has hoarded 
and destroyed food for years; to 
keep prices high. Now if prices 
rise 5 per cent, and you buy 
more than some little Hitler 
thinks you should, you may go 
to jail.

on Hiroshima to Korea to What. 

The Society of Friends hav6 a 
300 year experience of meeting 
difficulties without force or vio- 
lence. Certainly their treatment 
of the American Indian was 
singularly successful and peace- 
ful while on the East Coast the 
Puritan idea was extermination 
and here on the West coast, en- 
slavement. Negro slavery was eli- 
minate from the Quaker fellow- 
ship fifty years l>efore a terrible 
civil war ended it in the Nation. 
Quaker ideas on meeting the 
present alarming problems 
should be worth considering.

"The Third World War" was 
preached on by Rev. James M. 
Webb, the noted Evangelist and 
author, of Chicago. 111.. Sunday 
night. August 6. at the church of 
the Living God, 410 East 

According to Biblical history 
and prophecy, says Rev. Webb, 
God has prepared a colored man. 
who was rocked in black man's 
credle in Africa, to be victorioufi; 1 
in this coming war. Whereas the 
colored man was used by the 
allied nations to win World Wars 
I and II, so will God use a color- 
ed man to win the coming war. 
God is able to put his Divine 
j power in any man — and destroy 
any human power. 

Rev. Webb is planning to show 
his Biblical pictures, entitled, 
"The Black Man's part in the 
Bible" at the Elks Temple or 
some large church. He claims 
that God used colored men and 
women making Biblic^ History. 
His matter is in books, pictures 
and reccord forms.

CRC Urges Pro- 
test U. S. Court 
Smith Ad 

The decision of the U. S. Cmuf 
of Appeals to uiOiold Judge Med* 
ina's conviction of the twelvo 
Communist leaders is considered 
so dangerous and' of such grave 
importance that everyone infer* 
ested in juaEtice is urged to write 
immediately to the National 
Non -Partisan Committee of ti»€ 
Civil Rights Congress, 23 Wet* 
26th street. New York 10, N. Y. 
The Committee can then use the 
millions of protests to prove to 
the court the people of America 
will not submit quietly to this 
raw injustice. 

The committee suggests tt»« 
following message: 

The recent decision of the Cir- 
cuit Court of Appeals in New 
York upholding the Smith Act 
and conviction of the eleven 
Communist leaders is aimed at 
outlawing the Communist Party. 
It is inconsistent with the Su- 
preme Court decision in the 
SchneidCTman case. It has placed 
new restrictions on the right vt 
free speech, press and assembly 
as established by the First Am- 
endment to the Constitution of 
our United States, and has given 
the sanction of the court to other 
violations of the Bill of Rights. 

We therefore hold that this de- 
cnsion cannot be regarded as 
final and that the Supreme Court 
must review the decision. We 
also hold that the right to bail, 
should be continued f^r tfie elev- 
enn Communist leaders during 
this appeal. ; j

in the country where police bru- 
tality is not more widespread 
than last year, or the year be- 
fore that. 'Legal' lynchings in 
the form of frame-ups are multi- 
plying in the Bay Area, with its 
vastly increased Negro popula- 
tion, and abuses *of the civil 
rights of Negroes have reached 
a new level." 

Police brutality and frame- 
ups, segregation, jobs, and other 
subjects vital to the Negro peo- 
ple — and to all Americans as well 
— will be discussed at this con- 
ference. The objectives of the

This ia the first Icq;» of a trip

in Europe. 

To the girls of Alpha Ijoaaoba 
and its heod. Mrs. Marion Jack- 
son; the DM1 League and oil the 
little dorlings who pooled their 
pennies and purchased my lug- 
g«ige last year when I was sched- 
uled to go to China, lint was 
stopped, I want you to know that 
beautiful luggage is with me 
nowi and is serring the purpose 
for which it was pur c hased in 
the beginning. 

I left Los Angeles on Friday, 
August 11, at 8:30 in the mom* 
ing. It was Flight 94 from our 
City of the AngeU to New York, 
and ererything went along 
smoothly. We had an hour's de> 
lay at Chicago while some re* 
pairs were made. But beliere me, 
all the passengers said they 
would rather put up with a 
slight delay than to go on as 
per achedule, cmd not feel sure 
whether o* not we were going to 
crack upw 

^ My stay in the world's greot- 
est metropolis was oil too brief 
for me to say any more than 
this: The skyscr<q>ers are Just 
as tall as erer. The people rush 
along as they always hare, and 
the heat is what you can expect 
to encounter in New York during 
the month of August. 

At the Los Angeles airport to 
bid nte *7>on Toyoge" was Al- 
bert E. Xahn, author of '"High 
Treosoo." Be presented me with 
a copy of his book inscribed with 
a beautiful message and his 
autograph. I am sure I sh€dl find 
great pleasure in reading it dur- 
ing the Paris flight. 
- Others wlio saw me off were 
members of the Eagle staff, 
Frances WiUiams. Atty. Herbert 
Simmons. Marguerite Edwards 
who drove me to the airport with 
three members of the staff— Betty 
WiUett Virginia Alexander, Pearl 
Fagelson, SoMlie Dureehkin, who 
brought useful gilts; and others. 
I cannot remember all the names 
but I wen Tory glad to see so 
many there and to hear all the 
ch ee r y "Bon Voyages." 

Here in New York I am stay- 
ing at the Hotel Commodore, and 
am as comfortcdde cm Queen 
Elisabeth in her poloee. 

The trip across the country was 
really wenderfuL Sometimes we 
were riding in the fleecy white 
clouds, and it seemed as If we 
had them en a fXoer. Then we 
would oome out of that strange 
white world, and ' see the real 
world beneath u^— far. far dow y. 
looking like the patches in a 
quilt green and brown, with 
threads of roods and highways 
joining them together. 

America is a wonderful coun- 
try. And as we flew along so 
smoothly th o usands of feet abOTO 
its surface, I though of that hym, 
"America, the Beautiful.'' When 
Katherine Lee Bates wrote that 
dbrring hymn, she was trorelling 
across our country, too, I believe. 
But she was on a railroad troin, 
howerer, and could really see the 
fields of waring grain, the rivers, 
the Talleys, the mountains, the 
highways much better than I 
could. Or «rt least from a very 
different angle. 

I felt a lump co^fM into my 
throat when I hummed — silently, 
if you can hum silently, within 
my inner self, these woods: 
**Americal America! 
God shedmis grcKw on tbeel 
Ai /^ crown they good with broth' 

sea to shining ••o.'^A'.' - 
made me Wont to work a 
harder to answer that 
'. Although at times as Just

The text of the letter follows: 
'The Independent Progressive 
Party is greatly disturbed by the 
recent attacks made on the pro- 
gram of the Los Angeles Housing 

The attempts being made by 
real estate interests and their 
spokesmen, who use the Korean 
war as an excuse to nullify the 
already started projects, are a 
real danger to the entire housing 
program, and to all projects and 
legislation designed to alleviate 
substandard conditions in this 

These some interests hove 
used every effort in the post to 
thwort sociol reform. Their pres- 
ent efforts are only further tac- 
tics that will oopitolixe on the 
intemotionol situotion, ond thus 
goip the ends thot they could 
not accomplish previously. If 
Ihese interests ore ollowed to tor- 
pedor this minimum program 
that has long been overdue, it

ple .of Los Angeles o better

Th Los Angeles Times' recent 
editorial could have better ap- 
praisedi' "slum conditions" by 
living in one, or at lea^t seeing 
one, instead of havingfw depend 
on a definition written in a die- 
tionaiy. The Times states that 
all housing should wait "until 
the war in the Orient shapes 
itself itno a recognizable pat- 
tern." They should be reminded 
that mony of. the men who 
served in World War IX, and 
some who ore already in uni- 
form ajain< come from the area 
known on Ctavei Ravine. Does 
the Times doubt that they would 
be against a decent place to live, 
with adequate toilet facilitjes, 
and an abeence ol tuberculosis?

NEW YORK— A «fcall for Con- 
gress "to apologize ito the Negro 
people and our country" was 
issued today by a l&bor union. 

The call came from Ernest 
Thompson, secretary of the Fair 
Practices Committee of the 
United Electrical, Radio and 
Machine Workers 
(UE). " ;, 

In a letter to 
Sarn Raybum, Speaker of the 
House of Representatives, Mr. 
Thompson stated: 

**Lost Fridoy our country was 
witness to o most disgraceful in- 
sult to the Hegro people of 
America by Representative Hen- 
derson Lonhom (O-Georgio) act- 
ing in on official copodty as o 
repriBseototive of the United

CoDgressmon Lonhom not only 
called Mr. WiUiom Patterson, a 
Negro called before a Congves- 
sionol Committee ^ o witness, o 
'block smi-of-o-bitch,' but 'also 
attempted to ossonlt him. 

"This action has brought a dis- 
grace upon the Congress of the

**It becomes the duty of the 
Congress to apologise to the Ne-

It is also incumbent upon Con-

"On behalf of the members of

call upon you to take immediate 
steps to grant redress to the Ne-

people who cherish decency and

viciously violated,"

accepts it or not, the people who 
live there accept it as substand-

tell anyone that it does not in 
any sense of the word represent 
adequate living conditions. The 
Times articles is seriously lack- 
ing in its understanding of what

on the part of big business, and 
reaction, who wftnt to put a har-

There were no witnesses to the 
shooting, but from the position 
of. the victim's body he was shot 
without warning and he turned 
to face Smith who came up. be- 
hind him. A bullet hole in the 
foundation of the building, 
which Simith says he fired, is be- 
lieved to have come from the 
gun carried by Williams. The 
theory is that it was fired by the 
victim through reflex action aft-

Smith and Williams admit they 
were peering in the bedroom 
window where Williams and his 
wif^ Rita were reclining. The 
dead man's wife is white. The 
police explained they were 
snooping because of complaints 
from ' neighbors who reported 
prostitution being carried on in 
the Williams apartment. 

Investigation by the California 
Eagle turned up several points 
which cast doubt on the story 
told by police at the inquest 
which was held Tuesday. 

1. Why didn't the police ar- 
rest persons in ttie Williams 
c^Kirtment following the shoot- 
ing if prostitution ^ros being 
corrfed on,*" and if they found 
marijuana on the victim? 

2. Why didn't tiie police enter 
or raid the house instead of stok- 
ing out and trying to sneok in 
a bedroom window? 

3. How could the cops hold o 
flashlight on their Identifioation 
cords and shoot at the same 

4. Who is the viee officer who 
hckl been trying to 'Mote" the 
victim's wife, telling her he was

5. Who were the neighbors who 
compkdned about prostitution? 
(This is portieulorly important 
since the neighbors soy Willioms 
<md his wife were *^ce people.") 


At least one member of the 
coroner's jury felt that' further 
investigatimi should be recom- 
mended in the case. What action

In spite of the headlines, Rab-

"But if we should read Isaiah. 
or Ezekiel, or any of our great

he said, "we would be in danger

But- in the future days those who

Only those will be proud who

Rabbi Cohen spoke of them as 
the' "Immortal Minion of the

rule in Hebrew that at least ten 
persons must be present in order 
to offer official prayer. 

Mrs. Maltz told something of 
the prison life of the Hollywood

White Lawyer 
Brings Racial 
Bias Suit 

Friday, August 11th, is the fil- 
ing date of a suit in Superior 
Court by Richard W. Pether-' 
bridge, an attorney for damages 
in a civil action proceedings 
against the owners of "Bea's 
Torch Club," at 3331. So. Main 

The action brought in the law 
offices of Atty. Harbert W. Sim- 
inons Jr., aseerts that the cafe 
owners specifically on three dif- 
ferent occasions refused to serve 
the plaintiff Petherbridge, or his 
party, becau«se of the presence 
at the dining table of a person 
of the Negro group. This, Atty. 
Simmons claims, is a violation 
of the State civil rights bill. 

At the time the case was filed, 
Atty. Simmons, requested the 
court to enjoin "Bea's Torch 
Club" from continuing to deny 
service to plaintiff, or any other 
persc%-s regardless of their race 
or color. Judge W. Tumey Fox 
before whom the request was 
made, refused to grant the in- 
junction. He set August 23rd as 
the date for the defendant of 
"Ilea's Torch Club," to appear 
in court andi show cause why a 
restraining order should not be 

Atty. Simmons pointed out, 
that should such a restraining 
order be granted, it would pre- 
vent "Bea's Torch Club," from 
hereafter refusing service to any 
person, or persons regardless of 
race or color. This case is unique, 
in that it is presented in the an- 
gle oif a white person insulted, 
rather than the outraged Negro, 
who ardently feels himself an 
American. The plaintiff, Atty. 
Richard W; Petherbridge, .jyhite, 
is an associate of Atty. Herbert 
W. Simmons Jr., who brought the 
action In the name of his law 
pa-rtner and William J. Roberts.

Organ Presented to Church 
By Milwaukee Brewing Company 

MILWAUKEE, Wis. — Monday, 
August 7, was truly a big day in 
the life of the Reverend W. J. G. 
McLin, pastor of the St. Mat- 
thew C. M. E. Church of Mil- 
waukee. Not only was it his de- 
voted wife's birthday, but it was 
the day his beloved church was 
presented with a brand-new 
Hammond organ by the Jos. 
Schlitz Brewing Company of Mil- 

Mr. Sol E. Abrams, Tice presi- 
dent and general manager of 
Schlitz, presented a check for 
$3,000 to Revemed McLin in the 
presence of the officers and trus- 
tees of the diurch. 

"We, of the Jos. Schlitz Brew- 
ing Company, are proud and 
happy to make this contribution 
to our good ftiends and neigh- 
bors at St. Matthew's Church in 
recognition of its contribution to 
the spiritual enlightenment of 
this community," Mr. Abrams 

Tears of happiness stood in 
I Reverend McLin's eyes as he ac- 
cepted the check. 

"Happy i" 

"Please tell our friends at 
Schlitz how happy you are mak- 
ing hundreds of our church 

members," Reverend McLln said. 
"In all of my preachings, I have 
always said that the best we 
have is what we must give to the 
Lord. In giving us this check, the 
Joseph Schlitz Brewing Company 
is making it possible for us to 
have, not just another organ, 
but the very best organ." 

St Matthew C. M. E. Church 
was erected at 538 West Walnut 
Street in 1882. Its present organ 
was installed soon afterwards, 
but time has taken toll of its 
once -golden tones. The new 
Hammond organ will l)e in- 
stalled right where the old one 
stood, and the old pipes will 
once more pour out full-throated 

Formal dedication of the new 
organ will take place Sunday. 
Sept^nber 10, at 3 p.m. Bishop 
R. A. Carter. Senior Bishop of the 
C M. E. Church of America, will 
come ot Milwaukee from Chi- 
cago for the ceremohy. Mrs. Car- 
ter, wife of ttie Bishop, wfU make

Dorothy Thompson, who. _• col- 
umn • appears every day in The 
Dodlf News, has never been 
counted among the ultra-liberals 
or progressives. Quite the con- 
trary. But in Tuesday's News 
she let loose a barrage which 
would have branded anyone less 
conservative as virtually a Red. 

She said: 'Thpse of us who be- 
lieve that the American foreign 
policy is utterly reckless and 
leading us straight into catastro- 
phe are effectively disfranchised. 
There is only one party, and it 
is a war party. There is no pa- 

■ ti^Qtic leadership that chal- 
lenges the course on which we 
have embarked, or has the brains 
or the courage to chart another. 

.*"The present course is to offer 
ourselves as the policeman of 
the world, to enforce, by the sac- 
rifice of American lives and for- 
tune, the court orders (as it 

.were) of United Nations coun- 

. tries who will not or cannot 
' .themselves fight to enforce them, 

.and to put down aggression 
wherever it may raise its ugly 

.head, in whatever corner of the 


"The 'law ag£iinst aggression' 
'which Truman, the generals, and 
the majority of Republicans: 
have committed us to 'police' is 
no law. There is not even a def- 
inition of aggression in^the UN 

In this confusion Miss Thomp- 
son speaks of "our vacant-mind- 
ed leaders (who) appoint the 
American people to be the Gala- 
h^ds of the world, to liberate all 
victims of aggression — whether 
they want to be liberated or not 
, . . That is the lesson of Korea. 

*lt is a war we cannot win, 
morally, politically, or militarily. 
We cannot win it morally be- 
cause no Asiatic trusts the for- 
eign devil, no matter what ban- 
ner he carries. We cannot win it 
politically, because we have i^ot 
one ally in Asia — having already 
done our best to extirpate all 
' western influences and ;^mpa- 
thetie powers. 

"A policy which commands the 
BriUsh to get out of India and 
the Dutch out of Indonesia, and 
. then decides to support the 
French in Indo-China . . . which 
refuse to support Chiang in 
China, and then decides to sup- 
port him in Formosa, and which 
totjtlly disarms Japan,^and then 

■ decides to defend it, is not a 

1 *lt is a taleMbld by an idiot." 

Miss Thompson believes Stalin 
is trying to lure us into a war 
with China, and even with all 
' Asia, and when we are bled 
white to launch an attack upon 
us and win an easy victory. 

This we cannot agree with. 
But we definitely have no Inisi- 
nes in Korea "whether they want 
to be liberated or not!" We have 
no business in China. In any part 
of Asia. In Europe. In any part 
of the world. Forcing those peo- 
ple to accept our particular eco- 
nomic philosophy. "Liberating 
them!!!" Faugh! How stupid can 

We^et? -..-..I ^^ -.i;;.^ -^s. 

"We have already lost Asia,** 
says Miss Thompson. "It is a 
loss we can acknowledge and 
sustain. . . : And if there is a 
statesman {n thi9 country with 
•ovrage to talk some sense and 
lead thte naticm away from cer- 
tain disaster, he will be elected 
IMresident ^ 

*T«spite the # high - i»«8sure 
sales talk, the people are hoistile 
and alarmed."

now tiMt It Is present to all of 
I — wkeie is the leadership 

Citizens of Los Angeles who 
live in the 12th Councilmanic 
District, the district represented 
in the City Council by Ed Dav- 
enport, have been talking among 
themselves for some time about 
recalling their representative^ 
who no longer represents them. 

When Davenport first ran for 
office, he posed as a friend of 
Franklin D. Roosevelt and as one 
who believed in the principles 
FDR stood for. He boasted, how- 
ever, that his father had been a 
supporter of the old Quay ma- 
chine in Pennsylvania. So any- 
one from Pennsylvania who 
heard his protestations obout the 
principles of Roosevelt, and at 
the same time his boast about 
Quay (no matter if it was said 
jokingly) voted for him with 
many mental reservations. And 
with the excus^!, "There doesn't 
seem to be anyone else to vote 
for." *. 

Davenport was elected the 
first time by a very small mar- 
gin. But once in, with the privi- 
lege of writing "Incurrfbent" un- 
der his name on the ballot, he 
has won hands down' in every 
election since thien. * 

And mice in, his ancestry as- 
serted itself, and he actec^ true 
to form. Old Mat Quay himself 
couldn't have been more reac- 
tionary than Ed Davenport has 
been in the City Council, At first 
claiming to be a Democrat, he 
later threw off that cloak of hy- 
pocrisy and became one of the 
most rabid, Red:; baiting, reac- 
tionary Republicans in the city. 

Davenport has denounced ev- 
ery progressive, forward move- 
ment as being Communistic. Ap- 
ing Jack Tenney in the Califor- 
nia Legislature, he proopsed a 
city ordinance that would force 

all city employees to sign a 
loyalty oath. He hais opposed 
child care centers, housing proj- 
ects, FEPC, labor -uiiioiis, rent 
control, price control' ,all anti- 
discrimination measures — every- 
thing that the decient citizens of 
America' want and are fighting 
for. -I 

In his opposition he! Kas ranted 
and raved, "Communist! Com- 
munist!'' to every person who 
has dared to lift up his voice in 
protest. ' : I . 

He is one of the leaders in Los 
Angeles who would fasten the 
chains of Fascism upoii America/ ' 

that of doing away with reni 
control in ,the city. His ravings 
against Communism have not al- 
ways affected us personally. 'Sc 
what? We're not Communists,'" 
we've been thinking complacent- 
ly. So we've settled back in our 
armchairs and done nothing. 

But now that rent control is to 
be abandoned, and our landlords 
can and likely will charge us 
any amount they wish, we're be- 
ginning to sit up and take no- 
tice. What! Raise that rent from 
$35 a month to $55, maybe $60! 
Maybe even higher, i ] 

That would take quite a chunk 
out of our pay check, "Wouldn't 

And who was the man who led 
this decontrol business? 

Why, Ed Davenport, member 
of the City Council from the 12th 

So now, since the threat has 
become something more than a 
mere cloud the size of a man's 
hand, and since it affects us 
very personally, we're all willing 
to listen to any propositi to re- 
call the councilman who did so 
much to decontrol rent. 




FI\fe years »go, August 15, 1945, the great^t, bloodiest war in 
histtwy ended with the surrender of his country's forces by Hirohito 
— predecessor of the present emperor of Japan. The victory of the 
allied free peoples of the world demonstrated beyond all doubt 
their superiority over the fascists. • .j^ ■ . -■ ~ 1 

E^'ery allied man and woman who participated in that war made 
history — as surely as did, for example, the freedom -loving people" 
who achieved the French, American and Russian Revolutions. The 
allies gavfe mankind another chance to build the better v^orld the 
best of men and women have dreamed of for ages. We proved 
once again that history is not made exclusively by the high-lKMTi, 
the rich and the generals (as the textboolcs say) — that the people 
make history. 

We paid a terrible price for victory: 52,000,000 men, women and 
children were killed during World War II- — of whom 326,000 were 
silain American soldiers; 670,000 American soldiers were wounded. 
"iTie value of the horijes and' buildings and land destroyed and 
the billions of tons of ^naterial expended can only be guessed at— 
but undoubtedly enough to give homes and schools and hospitals, 
and much m<M-e, to all the people who need them. " '. ' ]] 

And it is important to recall why we and our allies fought such 
a costly war. The U. S. War Department, in its political education 
program for our troops, stated officially that we were fighting to 
defeot fascism, which it described as: 

"Fascism is the ftrecise opposite of democracy. . . . Fascism is 
government by the few and for the feto. . . . Fascism came to 
power, in Germany, Italy and Japan, i . . supported in secret by 
powerful financial and military interests. ... The fascists solved' 
unemployment by converting ttieir nations into giant war 
machines. . . . Those who subsidized and ran fascism grew richer. 
. . . People of a fascist state earn less and less. . . . ' 

''Any fascist attempt to gain power m America . . . would work 

under the guise of 'super-patriotism' and 'super- Americanism' . . . 

His final act of aggression iM Tndiscriminate pinning of the label 'Red' on people and proposals 

Who^s Your Congresstnan? 

When the November elections 
roll around, the heavy concentra- 
tion of Negro citizens in the 14th 
Congressional District will have 
little to choose from in the two 
candidates presented by the 
Democratic and Republican par- 
ties. The history of the Repub- 
lican Party and its relationship 
witft t*ie Negro people is a rec- 
ord of do-nothingness and empty 
promises, i 

Similarly, the Democratic party 
in recent years has come to rely 
on pn»nises rather than perform- 
ance in its dealings with the 
Negro people. It is not conceiv- 
able that the candidate of either 
of tiie major parties will bring 
to the Negro citizens in the Four- 
teenth District the kind <^ r^- 
resentatlon they deserve and 
have eveiy right to expect

Those who stand in positions

must be aware of the sentiment 
abroad that tKe November elec- 
tions, and not some period two 
years hence, is tiie^time to carry^ drive fdr a Negro Repre-

yohich one opposes is ... a favorite trick of native as wetl as for- 
^gn fascists. . . ." ^ 

I know this was the official American definition of fascism and 
the enemy because for over three years as an army orientation 
>fficer I was «d«ed to indoctrinate our troops with that definition. 
I believed it to be true then. I believe it to be eqjiially true now — 
and confirmed by what has been happening in my own CMtntry 
since the war ended. . | i 

The V. 8. Army trained me weU to recognize the symptoms of 
fascism. I am able to <usert therefore that every part of that of- 
ficial definition describes accurately what native fascists are try- 
ing to do itn America today. 


Consequently, this poses a question of great significance — one 
which every thinking American must answ« for himself: If the 
USA was right in paying so high a price to defeat fascism, can our 
government be right five years later in its actions which follow so 
closely its own definition of a fas<nsf state? 

If what we did five years ago to destroy the fascist states was 
right, what our government is doing now must be wrong. We 
can't possibly be right in both situations which are "precisely op- 
posite" to each other. If what our government is doing today is 
right, then in helping to stop the fascists^ive years ago we paid 
an awful price to commit the greatest mistake in hist<My. 

There are certain .infamous Americans who insist that we were 
wrong to join the allied cause in World War II. But do the Ameri- 
cyi people think "so? To do so say that every American 
and allied soldier and civilian who died in. the war died for a lie, 
that all the sacrifice the rest of us made on the battlefields and 
home fronts were for an evil cause. ;. ... ^v ^, 

Dare the Trumans-Dulles-Warrens tell our gold star mothers that 
their sons gaye their lives for naught? That they dare not — for they 
know that that is the lie. They know the American people would 
reject such a betrayal, would drive such betrayers from public 

We know we were right 4n fighting the fascists five years aga 
We know that in beating them we gave democracy another chance. 
This is the great victory of that war . . . which makes our sacrifice 
worthwhile. We learned that safe-guarding democracy, our chil- 
dren's future, is a life-time job — and that we have tlie strength 
and wisdom to do it We learned that we must fight fascism all the 
time, ever3rwhere. , ' 

After our vict<^ we had every right to expect the ^building of 
the better world we'd fought for. By our deeds, we the people 
earned that reward and proved ourselves worthy oi it We proved 
also that we are capable of creating it ourselves. 

We have great pride in that victory — a pride that f<Mnifies us, that 
confirms our invincible power, a pride that is a source of profoimd 
satisfacti«N(i and a ridi heritage fot our children, a pride that wiU 
generate the determination to build a better life. ^ 

On this fifth anniversary ot the world war's end, therefore, we 
pledge that we will ^lOce our victory bade from the misleaders, 
he trailom who sold «s and o«r nation short.

tbat is at one

long OS it was possible foe them 
to stay nniVt**. wet k er s in the 
trade unions were the hard core 
of the peo^e's movement in the 
United Stotes. The strength and 
unity of the nation took its pace 
from the forward step of labor. 

Prior >to the odrent of Taft- 
Hortleyism and top leadership

unions represented moss Ameri- 
ca in full growth toward the 
realization of trae democracy. 

Historicolly. the trade union 
movement has always been look- 
ed upon as a force left of center. 
The simplest demands of 
hove been chara c te r i se d a

carried out in the face of the' 
prerailing unity. That unity hod ;

the CIO. Admittedly willing to 
form on alliance with faedsts, 
the CIO will soon hare to sur- 
render what's left of its prestige 
and dignity in order to keep its

In destroying the unity of the

It shall be my sincere en-

right in making those srfiools 
under my jurisdiction the best 
that the state can offer. I solicit 
your remarks and suggestions at 
any time, to improve our school 
facilities. With your help I am 
sure that we will be able, to- 
gether, to guide and assist the 
boys of today in becoming useful 
men of tomorrow. 

Very truly yours, 


A Visit To Tlie Home Of Fredericl( Douglas 

Three days before he entered 
prison, a victim of the Un-Amer- 
ican Activities Committee, Albert 
Maltz sought out the Washing- 
ton home of Frederick Douglas. 
The following (is a portion of a 
letter to his wife giving his im- 
pressions of this national shrine. 
Bt Albert Maltz 

**One does not find the house of 
Frederick Douglas listed in the 
"Things To See" section of the 
newspapers and at the Afro-Am- 
erican no one knew its address. 
It is an old two story Victorian 
house on a hill. It must once 
have commanded a fine view of 
the Potomac but now many 
houses block the view. The 
grounds are untended and shag- 
gy, the house needs paint. A 
colored family lives in another 
house to the rear and they pro- 
vide visitors wfth the key and 
with a member of the family to 
see that visitors do not pilfer. 
There is no admission charge but 
there is a collection -box. 

"Some random items: in a glass 
closet are the gun and the Amer- 
ican flag carried by John Brown 
at Harper's Ferry. In Douglas' 
bedroom are a pair of dumbells 
for exercise like mine at home. 
A piano and a claviciiord speaks 
a musical interest on the part 
of lomeone in the household. 

'Tremendously, tremendously 
exciting to me and all of us was 
his study. Unlike shrines, this 
One is open. I sat in his chair, 
at his desk, opened his drawers. 
While the drawers contain a 
miscellany, including some 

things obviously put in there lat- 
ter, like many pictures of him^ 
there are other items that un- 
doubtedly were there when he 
sat there 55 years ago, just be- 
fore his deaths His small spec- 
tacles in a case, a device (very 
clever) for punching holes in 
paper, a notebook in which he 
kept his expense accounts. (Like 
Washington, and Maltz, he 
seemed devoted to this; he has 
several ledgers of expense ac- 
counts — 1 porter house, 35c, tip 
7c, etc. 

"A photograph there showed 
him seated at this very desk, 
his white hair bushy at the back 
of his head, his broad back bent 
over in concentration. He was a 
very big man, about Robeson's 
size ismd girth, and there is a 
picture of him there as a youitg 
man that bears an astonishing 
resemblance to Haywood Patter- 

"Then — a researcher's delight 
but a crime against our country 
— two files containing thousands 
of letters sent by him or received 
from others. There are three 
card indexes telling the persons 
involved in each letter, but the 
letters themselves are merely in 
folders in the files and are no 
more protected against loss by 
fire than the letters of anyone. 
It is terrible that this is so. They 
ought to be in a library, certain- 
ly photostated. 

"We only had about an hour 
and a half there. If I have any 
opportunity, I will g% there again 
before I leave."

how hard I am working on a 
story about the Marcantonio 
Anti-Poll Tax Bill. 

I go to bed, but I don't sleep. 
There's a jig-saw bugging about 
my innards. It keeps humming 
a little tune, "Tomorrow . . .To- 
morrow . . . Tomorrow." 
(To be continued) 

We are in Washington strictly i glances. I have shaved, I note, 

on business. The California Eagle 
has seat us there to drav^ bead 
on the California Congressmen 
who have hatcheted the anti- 
poll tax fight We are supposed 
to go to the House of Representa- 
tives, flash our reporter's pens 
from the good county of Ls An- 
geles, and start giving hly hell 
to the legislators of the kmd. 

We are to write a feature on 
John Rankin. One on Vito Mar- 
cantonio. Another on Will Rogers, 
Jr. We should go visit these guys 
immediately, if not sooner. 

Instead, we think about 
Yvonne. "Well, maybe I better do 
this sort of thing solo. I think 
about Yvonne. 

Yvonne is the girl who used to 
live next door when we were kids 
fn the city of New York and used 
to play fly ball in the middle of 
136th Street. She is a big girl 
now, and she works for Uncle's 
War Department as the secre- 
tary of an adputant general. 

TvooiM lives in the Girls 
Dormitory for government work- 
ess, whatever that is. It Is le- 
eoted at |919 Third Street N. W. 
I leave you in our room* and 
hfood for the GiiU' Oocmitory 
considering about as follows: 
"Wonder what the heck Yvonne 
k>oks like now? . . . haven't seen 

with something less than the 
usual blood-letting. I am stand- 
ing up straight; my clothes have 
just been pressed; and I've got 
on the coat with the shoulders. 
Better, I couldn't look. Into the 
room floats a pert little vision 
done up in brown and red; I 
don't know what, but she's in 
some kind of sticky material 
that brings out all the high spots- 
Long black hair framing a deli- 
cate taffy-brown complexion. Oh, 

Somehow she doesn't plop. 
•Whi^, hello, John," she says gay- 
ly. but keeping a good distance. 
Deep i« the heart of Kinloch. 
there is a glandular disturbomte. 
Shooting stars start shooting. 
. We go along into the nook — 
and cranny room. 

Yvonne says hd^ nice I look, 
except she expected I should be 
taller and with a mustache. I 
promptly tell her that cosmic de- 
sign meant us two as one, etc, 

YVorine gently points out what 
a tine character' she thinks I am 
and what good friends wexwill 
always be, and she thinks about 
me like a brother, and she feels 
so saf^ with me, and I'm the; 
type that will understand how 
she feefs about Sgt. Coles. (Out 
<rf sheer gallantry, I won't let. 
veaJ the slug's first name.) .> [ 

Instead of the usual letters of 
John Kinloch, here is a tale of 
adventure written in his own in- 
imitable way, concerning a trip 
he made to Washington, D.C., in 
the early years of the war. 


Dear Chums: 

I'd just as well pick up where 
I left off a few weeks ago. Re- 
member? — Oh, well, anyway, it 
was in the middle of a mess. 

Yvonne was cavorting around 
in my dreams, beautiful long 
dreams about a honeymoon for 
just us two. But even in the 
dre^^ something was wrong. A 
little man kept popping in and 
out of the thing. **GHEE'nNGS,'' 
he soid. ''GREETINGS FROM 
THE PRESIDENT, etc" he kept 
saying. I nearly went nuts. 

Besides there were lumps in 
the bed. In the funniest damn 
places. There probably isn't a 
lumpless bed in the whole- city 
of Washington, D.C. Especially 
when your're dreaming about the 
Igal who used to live acrost the 
street, with the pigtails. Espe- 
cially when you just saw her a 
few hours ago. All grown up, so 
to speak. All grown up in the 
right places with the right em- 
phasis. All grown up and ready 
for love. 

The only trouble is, my chums 
—the only trouble is somebody 
saw her first. She told me about 
him in those few breathless mo- 
ments together. As a matter of 
fact, she didn't tell me about 
anything else. Just him. 

I'm no GoA>le. you understond. 
But there I was all shaved emd 
clfltoa and sharp as a TACK. She 
never get around to nofidng me, 
though, eiecept once 

"You're pretty smart, huh?" 
she said. 

Quietly I died. Right on flhe 
spo^ • .- ■ 

with my elbows. Otherwise I 
was perfectly normal. Room tem- 
perature hadn't gone up but the 
heat was terrific. That's all. 

I was a gone goose and I didn't 
even ration myselL 

Well, I started doing that busi- 
ness with my right eyebrow, but 
she thought the smoke was af- 
fecting me and sent for a bromo. 
I'd never tasted the stuff before, 
and I'll tell you it's quite an 
experience. Haven't 'sobered up 
yet. CLUB CAVERN hasn't 
cleaned up yet. ' 

That's were I left off a few 
weeks ago. That's where I 
thought I left off. That's where 
things just began to happen. 

(There are too many first per- 
son singulars in this letter. Too 
many "I^" Which isn't good 
t<xste. Hereofter every other "I" 
will be represented Ijy **R" See 
what "R" means?) 

as they have never been chal- 
lenged before.

A Httre later at tlie GLT^B 
CAVEKN, where my old friend, 
WILLIE BRYANT, was master of 
ceremonies with the u sua 1 
cracks, only more so — I looked 
her over from top to toe. What 
an excursiMi! It was only then 
that I started tying shoelaces 


Next morning after the lumpy 
dreams, she toolc the day off to 
show me around our Nation's 
Capitol, on account of R am an 
old friend and nothing more. 
Every once in a while I snatched 
madly at her hand, but quick 
as a flash, she's start pointing 
with a remark, "And OVER 
THERE is the Lincoln Memor- 
ial!" Honest to God, one time 
three passersby reported her as 
a fascist agitator! I cleared that 
up. though, R told the cops she 
had a statue of Liberty comiplex. 

She had a surprise for me, she 
said. As homeward we wended 
our way, she told me. _ 

"A big surprise," she said. "I 
know you'll like him. Really like 
him, I mean." 

R caught on. MOVE OVER, 
quoth the heart of me to my 
right great toe. 


No getting out of it. That was 
he, as the Better Grammar 
people put it. 

"Hello.'l I said. 

Teah. that was him. and I 
don't give a damn how it's said. 
Tall, smooth. Tarzan with a G.I. 
zoot suit A jungle lion come for 
his mate. Whatta Man I 

One good thing. My friend 
Rene had happened in from Ft. 
Belvoire, and he's a pretty chesty 
character in his own right. The 
four of us stood there. The other 
three didn't understand with 
what an effort. 

Rene and I soon left. The Lion 
had something Terribly Import- 
ant to tell her. Private. 

It's always nice walking down 
the street with Rene. The pretti- 
est girls start smiling at you. 
But even this didn't help. I felt 


It turned out that the Lion 
wasn't such a beast after all. 
Anyway he wasn't any holy ter- 
ror to the armed forces. They 
didn't mind ordering him deep 
into the heart of Military In- 
formation. Yvonne cried all 
night. She told nie. 

Militcnry Information turned 
out to be not hcdf so near a 
battle-field €U we might hove ex- 
pecetd. which is too bad. since 
it virtually rnnoves any chance 
of the Lion beconiing a Here of 
the Republic, even pesthunous- 
ly. Le. even ofter he is crooked. 

Well, the^ we were, Yvonne 
and me, a couple of broken 
hearts. Naturally our conversa- 
tion was on a high plane, almost 
stratospheric. "OH, THE EMPTY 
HOURS," she kept remarking. 

I told her in my best journal- 
ist manner that this needn't be 
at all. There Is life throbbing 
about you, I said. There is Amer- 
ica fighting a war of survival. 
There is a world straining at its 
chains. The spirit of freedom is 
abroad in the land, and the op- 
pressor's rights are challenged, 
from Mississippi to Sevastopol, 

Hi Kids, Gee, I feel sad this 
week, I am leaving and Joe 
Adams just played (Journey's 
End by Dinah Washington). I am 
taking a job this coming semes- 
ter in Meridian, Miss., teaching 
grammar school, but did not 
know I had to leave so suddenly 
until yesterday. Oh, well, on with 
the news. . . . Poor Bernadine 
High and Lee Coleman were all 
set for the dance at the Alpha 
Saturday night, but Bern was 
sick, so in order not to be dis- 
appointed, she put on the loud 
shirt Lee had bought her for the 
dance and lay in bed thinking 
of the wonderful time she could 
be having with Lee at the dance, 
tsk tsk. . . . Why doesn't Crawley* 
White and Fran Ramsey stop 
playing cat and mouse. Why 
don't you two catch each other • 
and get it over with? . . ,

sighs Robert, "but I have." . . .

Kids this is it, oh yeah. I think 
that I will continue my column 
in the form of a letter to my best 
pal, Fran Ramsey. It'll be real 
weird so look for it. Now that 
I'll be gone I can really talk 
about you in my column HAH!

activity that was tops in attrac-

the "Plaid and Pinafore" Diince 
given by Kappa Fraternity. This 
idea was as clever as any that 
has presented itself to the pub- 
lic in past months. Here and 
there among the crowd the idea 
was strictly followed. Wouldn't 
it be grand to really view the 
crowd at an affair with a special

letter??? I'll say so! Many of

there, I'm sure it will be very 
inspiring. . . . 

Pan Hellenic Council of Los 
Angeles has planned a unique 
affair that will be held during 
the post-convention. All the 
Greeks are invited to be present 
at this function. . . . 

TO THE great fraternity of Alpha 
Phi Alpha. . . . The men of Alpha 
will hold tiheir regional meet in 
the city from August 25 to 27 
inclusive. David Arbor, publicity

ports that a full schedule will be

Invitations will be in the mail

held on the 27th, at which the 
local and regional officers will

follow the Garden Party Idea. 
This should be ideal for observ- 
ing late summer fashions of the 
Alpha wives and sweethearts. 
Will surely give you a full ac- 
count. Sunday, August 20th, will 
be quite a morning for the fel- 
lows. A special breakfast is to 
be given honoring Belford Law-

ney, wh« is a very active frat 
man in his part of ttie country.

and the wonrien of Delta meet 
arid greet. , , , 

As we 1eflv^>«dis thought. I 
may mention that^ Kappa and 
Alpha Frat and AKA Sorority 
will have a great time when all 
ihree meet and greet in the lively 
town of St. Louis, Mo., around 
Christmas time for their respect- 
ive National CbnfatMS. Hmmmm, 

just think of what a ball that 
will be I I ! 

is lots of fun and enjoyment for 
me. It seems that I just cstn't 
stay away from the Oasis Club 
while Count Basic and Sextet 
holds the spotlight. The mellow 
and rapturous tones of the scin- 
tillating saxaphone of Wardell 
Gray are just "blase," especially 
>when he blows "These Foolish 
Things." Spied Frances Garland 
and Dorothy Bradley making a 
handsome couple on the dance 
floor as the tune flowed. If you 
miss this wonderful entertain- 
ment at the club, your best bet 
would be to catch them at the 
Elks Auditorium (and you all 
know where that is) on Satur- 
day night coming up. While lis- 
tening to the entertaining radio 
show of Jack Low on Tuesday 
night past enjoyed a person to 
person interview between Jack

she was in town. Hadda gave 
the news that she is appearing 
in a film with Humphrey Bogart

sometime next week. Understand 
that she's now appearing at Jerry

Two decades ago a small -fry 

constituent of Harlem, Benny 

.Carter, walked along a crowded 

street pulling a wagon load of 

laundry bundles. 

In all the cacophony of voices 
and street noises something 
halted the boy. The little red 
wagon sq'ueaked in turning 
around. The boy stood in front 
of a music shop, mesmerized by 
the haunting wail of a trumpet 

It began then and there: Re- 
sult: Benny Carter, to be hailed 
as one of America's most versa- 
tile bandleaders — a composer, 
arranger, virtuoso of four instru- 

Hollywood's film studios, ever 
alert for fresh talent, were quick 
to make u«e of his musical 
genius, and within the last year 
he has signed his name to spe- 
cial arrangements for such out- 
standing 20th Century -Fox iKod- 
ucts as "Panic In the Streets," 
•No Way Out" and "My Blue 
Heaven," all a^ yet unreleased. 

Then came Holl->"wood, hun- 
dreds of recordings, untold le- 
gions of dance-loving followers, 
and Benny was securely en- 
throned as one of America's most 
versatile men of music.

taken the Main Stem by storm 
and has set a new box office rec- 
ord for 1950, at thej Warner 
Brothers popular pictuBe house. 

Once again proving herself to 
"be a pKjtent 12-year old bundle of 
rhythm, Toni smashed all box 
office records' for this house, 
which chalked up $S4.000 Friday 
through Sunday. Variety, the 
Bible of Show Business, points 
out that this figure is normally 
a good average for an entire 
week. j " :. .:> 

When Toni Harper stfps to the

starched ruffled dress, and gives 
out with her jive -up Mother

anyone's mind how it is that she 
holds a calloused Broadway in 
the palm of her hand. \

At Oasis 

Music lovers and fanis of Eroll 
Garner who have been anxiously 
awaiting for this great artist 
will welcome the news of his 
opening tonight at the Oasis for 
a two week engagement. 

Returning after over a year's 
absence Garner has since made 
musical history. So great has 
been the demand for Gamer's 
bookings that he has played 
only a percentage of the loca- 
tions that want him but even 
with these limited appearances 
Errol 1 won both the Downbeat 
and Metronome piano polls for 
1949 being voted the nation's 
favorite jazz pianist. ^ 

Garner did such outstanding 
business at the Deuces that both 
operators and critics credited, 
him with reviving jazz on 52nd 
street and with creating a come- 
back for the jazz piano. 

Supporting Erroll Garner will 
be the nifty little combo of Lee 
Young. ..Make it a must go to 
the Oasis and see the best show 
in town, and meet Joe Abrahms 
and Bill Robinson, those two 
great guys that ade always on 
hand* to make your evening at 
the Oasis an enjoyable one. 

Amos Milburn 
Heads For City 

: LUBBOCK, Tex. — Amos Mil- 
burn has heeded a frantic call 
from Eddie Mesner, president of 
the Aladdin Record Co., and will 
conclude his current road tour 
this week in order to head for 
California to do some rush re- 
cording for the Aladdin label at 
the firm's Hollywood studios. 

The famed "Bewildered" man 
has been so occupied on the road 
during the past few months that 
he has been unable to settle 
down for any recording ses- 
sions, thus completely exhaust- 
ing the Aladdin firm's supply of 
unreleaSed Milburn platters. 

Amos, who is consistently one 
of the biggest-selling stars in the 
recording industry, has had no 
less than 10 new records released 
since the first of the year, in- 
cluding such smash hits as "Any- 
body's Blues," "Birmingham 
Bounce" and "Two Years of Tor-

possible to re-sell all donated

THE OLD cmr 


Esknde Robeson Hits 
Husb^d's Enenues 


Mrs. Eslanda Goode Robeson, 
wife of the great singer and 
patriot, I»aul Robeson, received 
a nasty letter from a man who 
claimed he knew Walter Camp 
who named Robeson to the All- 
American football team in 1918. 

The occasion for the letter was 
the attempt of the Stat€ Depart- 
ment at Washington, to revoke 
the passport of Paul Robeson 
This person, whom Mrs. Robeson 
designates only by the initials 
"R.W.P.", wrote to Paul, applaud- 
ing the decision of the U. S. Gov- 
ernment, and telling' him he has 
also written to Rutgers Univer- 
sity, suggesting that the univer- 
sity cancel his athletic and col- 
lege honors. 

Mrs Robeson, through the press, 
replied to R.W.P. Her letter, re- 
strained and courteous, together 
with the letter of R.W.P. was 
published in the Springfield 
Union, Springfield, Mass. 

We are glad to give both to 
our readers. 

The letter written to Robeson 
by "R. W. P." is as follows: 


"I was a friend and close as- 
sociate of Walter Camp who 
named you on his all -American 
team of 1918. 

•'I have heard tonight, over the 
radio, that the U. S. government 
has denied you passiK>rt facilities. 
I applaud that decision! I con-

there is nothing worse. ; ; 

'Today I have written to 
Rutgers suggesting that the uni- 
versity cancel your varsity letters 
and other athletic honors, as a 
disgrace to the college, as you 
certainly are. 

"Knowing Mr. Camp, as I did, 
I am sure .that he would have 
cut off his right arm rather than 
honor a person who acts toward 
his country as an ingrate. such 
a^ you have done. 

"I suppose Vishinsky, Malik,

such creatures cheer for you. But 
decent people — ^whether of your

grate and a renegade." 

Mrs. Robeson's Reply 

"My husband is at present un- 
der a great deal of pressure 
from our government, and from 
some un-American fellow citi- 
zens, I have, herefore, decided to 
withhold your letter from him 
for a few days, and to answer it 
myself, on his behalf. 

"You say that you were a 
friend and close associate of 
Walter Camp, who named Paul 
Robeson on his all -American 
team of 1918. Then I hope you 
believe — along with me and mil- 
lions of other sport fans — ^that 
Walter Camp chose the members 
of his all-American football 
teams because of their ability, 
prowess, and sportsmanship on 
the gridiron, and not because of 
their political opinions, if any, 
nor because they went hat-in- 
hand saying 'Yes, Sir,' and or 'No 
Sir,' to our government officials, 
police, and other people current- 
ly in power.

"There will have to be a lot of 
cancellations. The university will 
have to canc«>l 15 varsity letters 
won honorably in four different 
sports, football, baseball, basket- 
ball and track. They will have to 
cancel his Phi Beta Kappa key. 
They will have to cancel his 
membership in Cap - aiid - Skull, 
the sAior fraternity made up of 
the four men who roost truly and 
fully represent the foremost ideals 
and traditions of Rutgers. 

"If and when Rutgers, or any 
group or person cancels Paul 
Robes<Mi's place in the football 
Hall-of-Fame, his membership in 
Phil Beta Kappa and Cap-and-

"Because Paul's place on these

books, in the newspapers and

studied, worked and played with

watched and applauded him from 
the stands. 

"I'm afraid you are going to 
have to find some other way out 
from under Paul Robeson. The 
A grades still stand on the books 
at Rutgers; the faculty, Phi Beta 
Kappa, Cap-and-Skull merely ob- 
served, recorded, and applauded. 
He actually did catch those for- 
ward passes and run that inter- 
ference; Walter Camp and Louis 
Lee Arms and Charles A. Taylor 
and George Daley and oth^ 
sports writers merely observed, 
recorded and applauded. He 
actually is one of the great sing-

"It is this paragraph of your 
letter which makes me really 
angry, and forces me to answer 
you. How dare you call Paul 
Robeson names? I deeply resent 
this name-calling. Un-Americans 
are very quick to call people

building hatred against them.

It marks the tlrst time the

In making the presentation, 
Mr. Sissle said: 

"The Negro Actors tSuild feels 
that the film 'No Way Out' is 
the greatest step forward in the 
fight against racial prejudice 
since the start of movie-making. 
It is by far the most dramatic 
and most effective expose of pre- 
judice and discrimination yet 
filmed. 'No Way Out* is not just 
a Negro- versus-white story, but 
a real exploration inthe destruc-

18— The Califoniia Eask, —Friday, August 18. 1950 


lUe Rubdown 


NEW YORK CITY — (Calvin 
News Service) — As the major 
league teams go down to the 
wire, we come to the realization 
that, after two years, there are 
still a number of teams that 
have no NEGRO players, WHY? 
Don't come up with that old 
gimmick that "we're waiting to 
see!" Waiting to see what? THE 
Branch Rickey's (and remember 
HAD an executive at that origi- 
nal meeting) innovation not a 
team in either circuit has a 
complaint to make. Let's get 
down to brass taoks. Charles 
Comiskey, Jr. (whom I wish to 
thank for his note about Luke 
Appling) is making his move — 
all well and good. The N. Y. Yan- 
kees (probably caused Weiss to 
have indigestion) have signed 
two farm hands-.-and maybe 
they will get up. eventually. The 
St. Louis Cardinals (Gas House 
Gang), who should have been 
second on the list to put a Negro 
on the team; the mighty "kid" 
outfit known as the Philadelphia 
Phillies; the Boston Red Sok; the 
Detroit Tigers; the Philadelphia 
Athletics; the Pittsburgh Pirates; 
the Cincinnati Reds; the Chica^go 
Cubs: the Washington Senators. 
GROUP have Negro players. 
Some have potentials (farm 
hands) but it is known that the 
move to shove some Negroes in 
the Minor Leagues was to TO 
MAJORS. Hard to believe, isn't 

YOU WILL NOTE, upon close 
observation, that .teairws who 
haven't had the "courage to tack- 
le the so-called "problem" are 
centers of population. Popula- 
tion means money. We h<^>e 
there is more money in those 
towns than there is in Hard 
Tack, Arkansas. The Negro as a 
box otfice potential isn't the pre- 
nilse upon which we advance 
either. No indeed. The story is: 
Negroes who do play ball, play 
the foc'l out of it and those that 
are capable will draw twice as 
maay whites a« Negroes; pri- 
marily because there are more 
whites and liecondarily because 
sport fans don't care if you look 
like a mallard duck shot with 
a 30-30 special — as long as you 
can do the job. Remember the 
ovation given Henry Armstrong, 
In the Garden, following the 
long, bloody battle with Fritzie 
Zivic? "Hank" was cut to pieces 
but the beak-busting fans roared 
for twenty minutes — the greatest 
sight in the world, in the man- 
ner of tribute. 

• « • 

rr HAS BEEJ< SAID that the 
majors want more background 
on Negro players. That's too 
d - - n bad! Had they shown a 
smattering of ihtere^, records 
would have been kept. They did 
everything they could to keep 
records from being kept. Why? 
It waus a challenge. Do yoTi 
realize that Menede, pitching for 
the Cuban Stars against the K.C. 
Monarchs, at Chicago, was near- 
ly fifty years old and pitched a 
no-hitter! You heard me. If you 
could get how of Casper Hol- 
stein (who was part owner of 
the Stars) he could tell you. The 
only two men, now, who would 
have dither written documentary 
or a memory wtvMt anyone 


could trust, are "Fay" Young 
and Dan Burley. Nothing is bet- 
ter proof of knowing what one 
is talking al>out than experience 
and having been on the scene. 

IT IS A SAD commentary on 
this so-called Democracy that it 
took this long to do it. Thanks 
to Jackie Robinson and Roy 
Campanella (also Don New- 
combe) anyway. Better late than 
never, but one thing we must 
learn as a ethnic group of peo- 
powers that be do what they are 
going to do — RIGHT NOW! They 
don't play baseball in hell; That 
goes for the Phillies and the 
remainder of the group men- 
tioned before.

regained the title but Louis is 
almost a sure bet to become the 
first ever to turn" the trick.

BUFFALO. N. Y. — Ezzard 
Charles, pressed by mauling 
Fred Beshoe during the early 
rounds, stopped the Harrisburg 
challenger in 2m. 53s. of the 14th 
round Tuesday night in the third 
successful defense of his NBA 
heavyweight title. 

Referee Barney Felix halted 
the contest with blood streaming 
frwn Beshore's puffed right ear 
and mouth while the crowd 
roared its displeasure. 

The champion from Cincinnati 
never dropped the swarming 
Pennsylvania Dutchman al- 
though he had him in trouble 
several times. Charles appeared 
ring rusty an^off in his timing 
after a 10-month layoff. 

A disappointing crowd of 6298 
paid only |28,666.36 gross to 
watch the bout. It was the small- 
est • crowd and gate in modem 
heavyweight title history. The 
previous low was $48,192 for Joe 
Louis-Harry Thomas at Chicago 
Stadium. April 1, 1938. Low at- 
tendance was 10,609 at Madison 
Square Garden, March 29, 1940, 
for a championship fight be- 
tween Louis and Johnny Pay- 
check. As the promoters esti- 
mated they needed a gross of 
about $50,000 to break even, they 
took quite a red ink bath. 

Beshore's onrushing style of 
infighting bothered the cham- 
pion no end. He foght in spurts, 
apparently not sure of himself. 
Gathering steam in the late 
rounds, he bombed Beshore with 
withering body and head 

Referee Felix had Charles out 
front, 12-2 when he stepped be- 
tween the blood -drenched bat- 
tlers. Judge Anse Carroll saw it 
12-1 with oiie even. Judge Leo 
Stachowlak nad Charles out 
front, 9-3, with two ever. The AP 
card saw 10-2 with two e-^n. 

TTie end came suddenly. ^ st 
-^ wheYi it appeared that the 5-io-l 
underdog challenger was going 
to last the route, A smashing 
right staggered Beshore as he 
came out of a clinch. Another 
right to the head, followed by 
six straight punches without re- 
turn, left Beshore wobbling in 
midring with his hands down. 
Noticing the blood streaming 
from ' the ear cut, Felix inter- 

With a Joe Louis match, prac- 
tically set for Yankee Stadium 
Sept. 27, Charles took few risks. 
He said later he had him figured 
out in the first round. Still the 
champion wound up with a cut 
left eye that also dripped blood. 

"My timing was off," said 
Charles in his dressing room, "I 
couldn't get a good right hand 
•hot at him. The guys I trained 
with were more or less stand up 
guys. I didn't know he was go- 
ing to fight that way."

John L. Davis, Carlos Chavez tq 
Fight for State Lightie Crown 

Carlos Chavez, veteran lightweight who turned in 
the best performance of his long career when he soundly 
trounced Art (Golden Boy) Aragon on June 6, will meet 
rugged John L. Davis, Oakland ace, at the Olympic Audi- 
torium on Tuesday, August 29, 
They battle 12 r6unds, and the ^^ 

lightweight championship of 
California is at stake. 

Enrique Bolanos held the title 
until last November, when he 
lost an unpopular decision to 
Maxie Docussen. Maxie shoved 
off for New Orleans after win- 
ning the crown, and stayed there 
for more than eight months. 
There's a Commission ruling 
that state champions must de- 
fend their titles every six months 
if suitable contenders are avail- 

In the lightweight class, there 
are oodles of suitable contenders, 
and since Maxie was absent, the 
State Athletic Commission de- 
clared the title vacant. 

Certainly no one can criticize 
the right of either Chavez or 
John L. to fight for the state 
crown. Both have repeatedly 
proved their class, quality and 

When Chavez defeated Aragon 
last June,#k was his fifth 
straight win this year; his most 
important victory prior to that, 
scored in Feburary, was a 9- 
round TKO over Jess Flores of 
Stockton. He had also beaten 
Emil Barao, the Hayward Ham- 

John L. Davis is perhaps the 
most underestimated lightweight 

lanos, Maxie Docusen, Bernard 
Docusen, and Tommy Campbell. 
But every one was a "tightfit"; 
every one could have gone to 
Davis, and there would have 
been no great to-do about it. 

Moreover, John L. had Bolanos 
on the floor in his first meeting 
with Enrique; the newspapers 
denounced the Campbell deci- 
sion over Davis at Hollywood as 
a bare-faced robbery. 

John keeps improving with ev- 
ery fight. He's a real club- 
fighter, loves to get in close and 
whale away with both fists. 

Certainly the winner of the 
Chavez-Davis fight would be a 
worthy opponent for Ike Wil-^C

Home Football 
Garner of Rams 
lb Be Telecast 

The Los Angeles Rams' home 
football games as well as their 
clash with the '49ers at San Fran- 
cisco probably will be trtecast 
live this fall. 

It was learned this week that 
two television set manufacturers 
have submitted bids to President 
Daniel F. Reeves offering gate 
receipt guarantees similar to the 
plan approved sometime ago by 
the college teams in the Pacific 
Coast Conference. 

The information is that .while 
no contract has been signed, one 
of these offers is so satisfactory 
that the Rams are now working 
out deals with the other Na- 
tional Football League Clubs 
who oppose them here. 

Under the proposed package 
plan, the advertiser would ob- 
tain the rights to telecast the six 
regular season tussles, two ex- 
Jiibition games, the '49er clash 
at Kezar .stadium and the game 
movies of all contests played 
elsewhere. JU 

Based on the guarnteed min- 
imum gate receipts plan which 
Les Hoffman and KTTV .<5et up 
with the colleges, the maximum 
outlay by the successful bidder 
for the Ram rights could go be- 
yond the $l,5e,000 mark. 

The information is that all 
but the Detroit Lions and the 
Green Bay Packers have arrived 
at agreements with the Rams for 
their games here.

Tennis Marvel 
Wants to Play 
At Forest Hills 

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.— The sen-

lanky Miss Althea Gibson on the 
tennis court does not end there. 

Miss Althea Gibson, a fresh- 
man student at the Florida A 
and! M College, Tallahassee, 

Florida, has for the past few 
weeks occupied the lead stories 
on leading journals' ^>ort pages H 
and has been the subject matter 
for several editorials of the na- . 
tion's leading magazines. "j 

Her greateet champion is found *| 
in the person of Miss Alice 1| 
Marble. Miss Marble, a former i| 
national tennis champion, took 
the opportunity of an American 
Lawn Tennis editorial to cham- 
pion Miss Gibson's cause. Miss 
Marble thinks that, "The en- 
trance of Negroes into national 
tennis is as inevitable ais it has 
been proved in baseball, football 
and boxing." Adding the per- ,J 
sonal appeal and interest to the J 
Gibson case. Miss Marble de- 
clares . . . "If I can give her oj^ 
iota more of confidence by 
ing my heart out from the gJ 
lery, she can take my word for 
it: I'll be there." 

Many other sports writers, edi- 
torialists and interested promi- 
nent people have expressed a 
grave concern for the evidencing 
situation that Althea Gibson will 
be denied the privilege of a For- 
est Hill debut — becaiise her skin

Crttie of the California Bairie 

Mc McNieU 


Two hundred years ago last Friday, Johann Sebastian Bach 
died at the age of 65. The anniversary of his death has been 
observed all over the civilized world,' and the greatest contemp- 
orary musicians have joined in paying tribue to the man whose 
work still standi after two centuries as the 
wellsprjng an dsoure of all music that comes 
afterward. ^ 

\ In his -own time Bach was widely respected, 
even celebrated, in the limited circle that took 
a serious interest in music. But, principally 
because he did not write operas, as Handel 
and other of his contemporaries did, he was 
almost entirely unknown to the fashionable 
world of European's music. When he died there 
was only one comprehensive obituary notice 
written and the authors of that were his son, 
Phillip Emanuel, and a loyal pupil, Johann 
Freidrich Agricola. 

He was able to give only a part of his time to writing music, 

lor all his life he held official positions that consisted not only 

^^piaying the organ and directing and writing for the choir, but 

^^Bb in his final post as cantor of St. Thomas' Church in Leiipzig 

^» had to teach the boys, be responsible for their discipline, set 

them "a shining example of an honest retiring manner of life," 

and ""always, so far as possible walk with the boys at funerals." 

In addition, his domestic life must at least have been mildly 
' distracting for he had two wives and 20 children. His second wife 
was a professional musician, and Bach took the time to teach 
her es well as several of his gifted sons. And one cannot help but 
wonder what domestic vicissitudes were created by one child who 
wa« mentally deficient. 

It becomes incerasingly amazing to discover the -appeal that 
this supposedly "musicians' composer" has for the multitude. 
Such recondite masterpieces as the B Minor Mass, the St. Matthew 
Passion, many of the cantatas, the unaccompanied violin and 
.cello sonatas, 'The Well-Tempered Clavier," seem no longer to 
present hazards to popular appreciation and are accepted by the 
laity as eagerJy as by the profession. 

Bach, after 200 years, has come into his own. 


Last Sunday 1 had the privilege of hearing The Symphonic 
Choristers under the direction of Andre Green. I must say that 
this group of male singers, sixteen in number, was out of this 

•world. Leonard de Paur would have been amazed had he been 
there. These singers not only have his style, but have even gone 
beyond that. This group has been in existence since 1949 with its 
new personnel, and is composed of students from U.C.L.A., U.S.C. 
and L.A.C.C. 

Andre Green the conductor of this fine group is a graduate 
of U.S.C. and has written a cantata entiltled "Regeneration of 
Saul." This work is written for mixed-chorus, male chorus, female 
chorus, bartone soloist and dramatic tencw. Its initial performance 
will be in September by the Bishop College Alumni Chorus. Green 

{is working out of the city Bureau of Music and has an adult 
chorus which meets every Tuesday night at James A. Foshay 

•lior High School. Andre Green is now in the process of writing 
oratorio. James Sraalley wrote the libretto for the contata and 
1 write the libretto for the oratorio. We are looking for great 
things in this fine group of choristers.

1-ast Thursday night at Hollywood Bowl the Ballet Russe de 
Monte Carlo jweformed to an almost full house. "Swan Lake," 
"Nutcracker," and "Sherezade" made up the program. I must say 
that Alexandra Danilova, and Leon Danelian were as usual supei4>. 


On August 13, the musicians presented the second in a series 
of Sacred Chatauquas at Holman Methodist Church. 


Helen Traubel sang at Hollywood Bowl recently to an almost 

capacity house. Miss Traubel was, to this writer's opinion, better in 

this concert appearance than slie is on the operatic stage. Brun- 

, hilde's Immolation was superbly done. Alfred Wallenstein met 

up to Miss Traubel in all things. 

The orchestra performed Wagner better than anything else 
this season. The public proved itself, in the respect that it can 
digest Wagner as well ot better than the other composers' works. 

The "Dance <rf the Apprentices" from "Die Meistersinger" was 
the best offering of the orchestra. Gowned in white and looking 
the role of a great Wagnerian singer, Miss Traubel sang with 
finesse the "Liebestod." AH I can say is that this evening was 
the best the bowl has piesented all season.

flima Louise 
Beports on Korea 


If anything comes clear in six 
weeks of Korean war it is that 
Russia has won a Korean de- 
votidn that America has not been 
able to inspiif. Everyone agrees 
that the North Koreans fight like 
fanatics and that, the South Ko- 
reans mostly vanished into the 

Yet there was no original dif- 
ference betwween southerners 
and northerners; Koreans are all 
one nation and no Korean ever 
recognized the Parallel. Nor were 
the southerners badly equipped, 
unless our high brass were all 
Pollyannas when they bragged 
that they had built in Korea "an 
Asiatic West Point" — just a few 
days before the war. 

The difference then seems to 
lie in a greaater devotion, ja 
greater will to fight. How 5id 
Russia arouse this, when Ameri- 
ca did not? 

First factor In Russian popular- 
ity, as I saw it on my visit to 
the Soviet Zone of North Korea 
in 1947 — the only trip made by 
any American writer to North 
Korea since the Japanese war — 
was that the Russians treated the 
Koreans as equals, and as own- 
ers of the land. Americans — 
whether GI's or tourists — seldom 
treat even British or French as 
equals, much less Asiatics. 

At the big banquet that cele- 
brated in Pyongyang the second 
anniversary of liberation from 
Japan, Korean high brass and 
officials sat all mixed together 
with Russian opposite numbers. 
They drank together, got sonne- 
what tipsy together, drank alter- 
nate toasts, challenged each oth- 
er to singing; and the Russians 
sang old Ukrainian love songs, 
not Bolshevik propaganda. In the 
dance that followed, Russians 
were gallantly asking the Korean 
women as partners and laughing 
as they worked out unaccustom- 
ed steps. It was a free dnd easy 
mixing such as few white Ameri- 
cans go in for with people of a 
darker skin. 

A second strong point was that 
the Russians never openly boss- 
ed Koreans. They did not even 
appoint Korean officials or take 
sides for and against pro{>osed 
Korean laws, as the Americans 
did constantly in the South. If 
I asked any Russian his opinion 
about anything in Korea, the 
usual answer was: "It Is the 
Koreans' country; ask them." 

The Russians were not widely 
popular at first; their popularity 
grew. The first troops that came 
in fighting Japanese were tough 

babies, straight from the German 
front. They couldn't always tell 
Japanese- from Koreans. There 
were regrettable incidents.- A 
foreign army in a country of dif- 
ferent race cannot always tell 
friend from foe, as the Americans 
in South Korea find today. 

But thf» Russians quickly with- 
drew these fighting troops and 
replaced them with small num- 
bers of selected experts in farm- 
ing, industry, engineering and 
government. The Koreans didn't 
even call them "troops"; they re- 
served that name for the original 
fighting force. This second lot 
made it clear that their much 
more modest function was "just 
to give advice." 

Koreans had no experience at 
all in government or manage- 
ment; they had been suppressed 
by Japan. They felt their inex- 
perience, but they were touchy 
when outsiders tried, as the 
Americans did, to tell them what 
to do. But the moment they 
learned that the Russians had 
experience, but weren't pushing 
it on them, they began of their 
own initiative to ask Russian ad- 

A Korean farm inspector on the 
east coast told me that there were 
a dozen Russians in the pro- 
vincial capital — this was in 1947 
— and they were there" just to 
give advice." . . . "We Koreans 
run everything," he bragged. 

"For instance," he said, "I'm 
a farm inspector because I know 
farming both from home and 
from school. But I don't know 
anything about inspecting. No 
Korean had such a job before. I 
don't know what questions to ask 
the farmers or how to make gov- 
ernment reports. So I go and ask 
one of those Russians who did 
that kind of work In his own 
country. They have specialties of 
all kind." 

Then he added a priceless com- 
ment on the Russians. "They are 
good -hearted, simple people who 
have more experience of govern- 
ment than we." 

This attitude towards what was 
then the Russian occupation may 
be amusingly naive. But it is 
partly the brag of a newly lib- 
erated people and partly shrewd 
Russian technique. Any person 
who can put across that impres- 
sion among the nations of Asia 
is going to win them as friends.

The nation's city and regional 
planners were asked this week to 
declare themselves against ra- 
cial segregation in housing and 
urban redevelopment and to 
pledge their profession's support 
of the goal of full "residential 
equality of opportunity free of 
imposed barriers as to race, cul- 
ture, creed, or ancestry." 

Meeting this week in Los An- 
geles, the 1950 National Plan- 
ning Conference, sponsored by 
the American Society of Plan- 
ning Officials, received the re- 
quest from Edward Howden of 
Son Froncisco as chairmon of 
the Housing Committee of the 
Nertional.. Association., of.. Inter- 
group Relations Officials. 

Gist of the proposed resolution 
is that planners, whost task is 
to help create the environmental 
conditions of "good human com- 
munities," should try to steer 
vast new programs of housing 
and slum clearance in American 
cities away from outmoded pat- 
terns of segregation. 

Of special local interest was 
an oction of the Los Angeles 
City Council in the week just

Byron H. Atkinson, coordinator i 
' Special Student Services on \ 
le Los Angeles campus of the 
niversity of California, at- 
?mpts to answer the question 
a current issue of Schopl and 
ociety. [ 

He breaks down peacetimie mo- 
»le into five categories and 
ives these answers for UCLA 

1. Campus discipline — about 
le same as before the war. 

2. Housing — not good, too high 
percentage of veterans living 

riends and families rather 
in dormitories or apart- 

Student jobs — only about 23 
?r cent need to work part-time 
compared to about 45 percent 
fore the war. 

I. Solvency — no veterans able 
live on their GI subsistence i 
lecks. Married students in 
precarious financial posi- 
|on than unmarried. 

5. Employment after gradua- 
ion — approximately 70 per cent 
flaced in jobs related to aca- 
lemic studies. 

Atkinson concludes: "If the 
ime, money and effort spent by 
[ll organizations in attempting 
raise veteran subsistence were 
:used on improved housing and 
icrease the low-cost recreation- 
facilities, the veteran student 
/ould be the first to retain his 
lora le."

The full force of the L. A. 
County Chess League, represent- 
ing all clubs in this area, was 
thrown into th* growing fight 
to suspend the Southern Chess 
Association from national tourna- 
ments until it ceases exclusion 
of southern colored players. 

Vote of club delegates at the 
County League meeting of 
August 10th was unanimous, en- 
dorsing a resolution by George 
Croy, California state champion, 

that SCA pliayers be banned 
from all U. S. Chess Federation 
events. This c(^lumnist as acting 
League president was chairman, 
and will forward the resolution 

[to USCF officials in the east. 

Los Angeles ranks second in 
importance in American chess, 
subordinate only to New York, 
and the League's strong anti- 

I discrimination stand is a serious 
blow to SQA prestige. If more in- 
fluential leagues throughout the 
nation vote similar resolutions, 
the SCA will be compelled to 
cease segregation or find itself 
segregated from the U. S. Chess. 
At the time of this encounter 
(Groningen international tourna- 
ment, 1946) neither of these 
great masters had yet gained 
his title.

Jim Crow at Home 

In ' a southern town a Negro 
youth was walking home from 
the white section of the city 
where he had been working hard 
for 13 hours at a salary of one 
dollar a day. As he strolled along, 
he suddenly became aware of 
what might happen to him if 
some white hooligans or the po- 
lice might spot him walking in 
this neighborhood after dark. 

The chilling terror of being 
beaten, or even lynched on a 
trumped up charge of rape, 
caused the lad to speed it up, 
strike a trot and try to get across 
the tracks as soon as possible. 
But no sooner than this aware- 
ness had awaken in him, there 
was a loud noise of screeching 
auto brakes. 

A car swerved to the curb and 
stopped. Two policemen stepped 
out with their pistols drown. 
"Get jout hands up black boy- 
Where ya think you're running 
too. You're the coon that attacked 
that woman a little while ago.

Appeal for 
Life Guards 
At 28th St. YM 


■ if. ..-■ 

The use of the swimming pool 
at the 28th Street YMCA is great- 
ly restricted these hot summer 
days by a need for volunteer 
life guards. This is especially 
hard on the boys who are often 
.denied the privilege of a swim 
"Taecause the "Y" cannot afford 
a life guard in the afternoons. 
Under the la>v the pool cannot 
be used except when a quali- 
fied life guard is on duty. 

Walter L. Hutcherson, a master 
of Physical Edacation from USC, 
is giving the boys two hours a 
week as « volunteer, life guard 
and is able and willing to give 
the necessary aquatic tests to 
other volunteers who are willing 
to serve the boys as life giuards.

others thot this is a white man's

Who was this Negro Youth? 

Jim Crow Abroad 

He is Willie McGee of Missis- 
sippi, Thompson of the Trenton 6, 
Jones of the Martinsville 7. Mrs^ 
Ingram's young son. my own 
brother, now called upon to kill 
Koreans on their own soil. Koreol 
Korea? Yes. I know the tenseness 
that runs through your body and 
mind when you hear the word. 
Because I too, become tense and 
feel deeply. 

We both chill because of our 
distaste for the bloody horror of 
war. "But to be distasteful of 
war," you'll continue, "is to be for 
peace, and to be for peace is to 
be subversive, so the papers 
say.** "And anyway what's all 
this got to do with the conven- 
tion and the role of youth." Well, 
all this has a lot to do with the 
convention and young people. 

Becoiise it was under these 
conditions at home and abroad 
that important decisions on 
NAACP youth and the fight for 
civil rights were mode. It was in 
this atmoqahere of international 
conflfrrt and growing Jim crow 
bigotry at home that the 41st 
ponvention assembled to work out 
a program for civil rights, includ- 
ing a progrcon from youth. It has 
been said that men's minds re- 
flect the conditionii under which 
they live. Certainly this conven- 
tion was not immune to the ef- 
fects of our^times. 

-What were some of these de- 
cisions? How and why did they 
corne about? What are their ef- 
fects in light of wtiat has t>een 
said about jim crow frame-ups 
and the desire of youth for a 
world at peace? 

Spadol Youth Needs 

As you remember, it has been 
the position of our youth council, 
that there are special needs and 
problems facing young people 
that require a youthful approach 
in their solution. And that this 
approach can most nearly be ef- 
fected therefore, by a youth 
council with youth leadership, 
and a youth council that enjoys 
a fraternal, mutual relationship 
with the adult branch. Indeed 
it was this kind of relationship 
that was spelled out at the Day- 
ton youth convention in Novem- 
btr, 1949. 

This is not to say that youth 
councils should be separate and 


apart from the Association as a 
whole. On the contrary, as the 
constitution of youth councils 
says — "youth councils shall be an 
integral part of the National As- 

It is on the above point that 
much discussion in the youth 
sessions at the convention took 
place. The majority of youth de- 
legates %ere in favor of a resolu- 
tion introduced by the Los An- 
geles delegation which would

Women's Day 

The First Baptist Church of 
Venice, Calif, Rev^L .D. Reveal, 
pastor, celebrated its fifth an- 
nual Women's Day Sunday, 
August 6. Principal speakers for 
the occasion were Mesdames 
Ruby Medlock, worker among 
young people and Marie Wil- 
liams, hospital missionary, both 
of Los Angeles at the special 
afternoon mass meeting. Both 
addressed th^nselves to the 
theme: "Godly W<Mnen Doing 
Good." A splendid supporting 
paper was read by Mrs. Charlie 
Mae Stewart. Music was made 
for the occasion by the Senior 
ch<rfr of the First A.M.E. Church 
of Santa Monica, directed by 
Mrs. Sherman Dall Jones, well 
known coloratura soprano, and 
by Mrs. Helen P9well, soloist of 
Kansas City, Kansas. 

The successful Women's Day 
c<Hnmittee was headed by Mrs. 
Margaret Reveal, wife fA the 
pastor: aissisted by Mrs. Ola 
Kirby as co-chairman. There 
were forty captains for the drive 
fA the women — working over a 
period of sixty days. Mrs. Marie 
Watts was mistress of ceremonies 
for the special program occasion. 
The welcome address was de- 
livered by Mrs. Selda Wilson.

Golden Anniv. NNBL 

The National Negro Business 
League is celebrating, its golden 
anniversary, with its headquar- 
ters in Tuskegee Institute, Ala- 

Horace Sudduth, the League's 
eighth president, points to the 
fact that "only through organiz- 
ation can the buying power erf 
Negroes be turned effectively 
into the channels that will con- 
stantly replenish the source of. 
this buying power." 

It is estimated that there are 
at least 50,000,000 Negro buyers 
in the United States — and their 
purchasing power mounts up to 
many millions of dollars per day. 

"To associate such fabulous 
sums with Negroes is something 
new in national economic reck- 
onings, and the U. S. Commerce 
Department, as well as Big Busi- 
ness" generally is taking note 
of the fact that Negro busuuess 
can be big business, too. ^'-t;-'

A century ago writers of biog- 
raphy put their subjects on ped- 
estals and issued many a musty 
tome about superhuman being 
who were larger than life and, 
it must be confessed, usually 
twice as dull. The inevitable re- 
action to this was an era of de- 
bunking, when so many blem- 
ishes were discovered in lives 
hitherto used as examples for the 
young that all history seemed to 
be a rectwrd of rogues, charlatans 
and psycholog^ical misfits. 

In recent years a balance has 
been reached. Many biographies 
now are as readable and inter- 
esting as good novels and yet in- 
volve careful research and an 
exact appraisal of their subjects. 
Some recent accounts of varied 
and colorful lives are suggested 
by your public library.

This warm, sympathetic study 
of Ulysses S. Grant ai a young 
man while recording the odd 
contradictions in his charactw, 
does not attempt to conjecture 
on them unduly. The youthful 
career of the-^future military 
^nius is portiayecj as full erf 
uncertainty an^ apparent shift- 
lessness and fe#«>uld have pre- 
dicted his late<r fame. The book 
was intended ^ part of a longer 
life of Grant, but the project was 
unhappily interrupted by the au- 
thor's death. However, Captain 
Som Groat is copiplete and ab- 
sorbing in itself.

Interest in this fine biography 
has recently been revived by the 
news that it is being made into 
a motion picture. Although the 
authi^ centers her attention chif- 
ly on the famous Mr. Chief Jus- 
tice . Holmes, ojie of the finest 
judicial and philo6<^hic minds 
of our century, she also studies 
his fascinating family, depicting 
Abiel Holmes, a minister, born 
in 1763, and <rf course inclubing 
the famous physician and au- 
thor, Oliver Wendell Holmes the 
elder. The bocric is not only au- 
thentic from a scholarly point of 
view, but abounds in delightful 
anecdotes. Above all there merges 
frwn its pages a clear picture of 
three great men, each embodying 

in himself something of the 
heritage of American civiliza- 
tion. . ' : , ,A %

The nineteenth century re- 
former, famous as an exponent 
of the single tax, is revealed in 
this work by one of his daughters 
as a man who was as loveable 
as he was remarkable, ^s one 
reviewer has said, it is something 
of a miracle to create in the 
reader a real affection for an 
economist, but that is what one 
comes away with after reading 
the book. The glimpses afforded

who comes to life in th§se pages

The genius, offered here with 
reservations, is that Tempestu- 
ous and tormented man of let- 
ters, the late D. H. Lawrence. Of 
the many books written about 
Lawrence and his desperate pil- 
grimage over the earth from 
Italy, aldington's is perhaps the 
most interesting from the stand- 
point of the general reader: Here 
is an account of surely one of . 
the oddest marriages of all timto. 
Lawrence is well known for his 
subtle studies of the relations 
between men and women but he 
never achieves any story so com- 
plicated and fascinating as his 
own married life. 

By Kyle Cridton 

The story of the zany brothers 
that is marked by a vivid pic- 
ture of their remarkable mother, 
whose determination and spunk 
is one of the chief reasons for 
their rise from poverty to fame. 

Novel by LEON SHR- 
MELIAN. E. P. Dutten & Co.. N. T. 

The title of this novel, 98.6, re- 
fers to the normal temperature 
of the human body. It is an ap- 
propriate title for a novel deal- 
ing with a young man's fight 
against tuberculosis. 

Daniel Moore, a university stu- 
dent, discovers one day that he 
has tuberculosis, in an advanced 
stage. He is sent to a state sana- 
torium—and later, with his 
sister's support, to a private salfe 
After 2 year* of curing he does 
recover. He returns to school, en- 
gages in a tempestous love af^ 
fair witli a Hollywood lady, 
breaks down again — returns to a 
sanatorium, and once more re- 
gains his health. { [ 

That in essence is the story. Its 
setting is clearly Los Angeles 
and S. California. It eifdeavors ■**. 
to expose conditicms in local pub- 
lic sanatoria — which demand 
public attention and correction. 

But the novel is more than a 
story. First, it presents the reader 
with almost a clinical report of 
tuberculosis and the nature of 
its treatment ^bday. Secondly, it 
attempts to probe the intellectual 
and spiritual trials <rf its sensi- 
tive hero — tho the emphasis on 
religion verges cm the mystical 
and tends to distort this phase 
of the study. 

The two factors cited are not 
separate, but closely related — 
for, as authorities in tuberculosis 
recognize, there is an extremely 
close relationship between the 
patient's physical and mental 
condition. (The psychosomatic 

In its depiction of the lives 
of the patients taking the cure 
the novel reflects the society in 
which we live and the personal!- , 
ties such a society creates. All 
the selfishnes that is bred in us, 
all the prejudices and conceits, 
reveal themselves sharply in the 
confines of a sanatorium, in the 
battle against tuberculosis. 

There is missing in the novel 
an adequate awareness of the 
economic factors in society which 
breed tuberculosis — and many 
other pestilences. The novel fails 
therefore to a<iueve the signifi- 
cance which a w^-rounded 
treatment of Mich a aobject 
would accomplish.

Reverend Henderson recently

WACO, Texas — A record at- 
tendance and an unprecedented 
and comprehensive program, up- 
on which a number of church 
dignataries will function on a 
week-long program, has been 
mapped for state congress of the 
Texas diocese <^ the African 
Methodist Episcopal Church 
which will convene at Paul 
Quinn College, Waco, Texas, 
August 21-27. The Rt. Rev. Joseph 
Gomez, presiding bishop of the 
Texas district, announced that a 
record number ot representatives 
from each of the more than four 

hundred (lurches over the state, 
seven bishops from other dis- 
tricts of the connection ^nd an 
array of general. (rffkers, candi- 
dates for general offices and 
outstanding church dignitaries 
from all over the nation will at- 
tend the meeting. 

The c<mgres8 normally attracts 
around eight thousand people 
each year but due to the com- 
plete construction of two more 
buildings, including the new 
$150,000 administration building, 
together with improvements to 
other ousting buildings and 

freshly laid sidewalks and curbk 
along the frontal expanse of the 
twenty-two acre campus and to 
all of the buildings, which is a 
sight -seeing must to the hou- 
sands of adhermts of African 
Methodism in Tekas, the attend- 
ance is expected to soar far 
above prior years to an unprece- 
dented high.

make too much of any man at

hold out in that prop<Htion.

Overweight Is 
A: Mental Job 

NEW YORK — Many of the 
present day methods of weight 
reducing fail because they do 
not help the overweight person 
to understand why he or she 
overeats, Mary Jane Moore, R.N., 
says in her new book YOU CAN 
TOO, published by The J. J. Tep- 
per Corporation of New York at 

"A woman may be required to 
diet and exorcise the remoinder 
of her life to keep a decent fig- 
uxe," Miss Moore aays. **unless 
she uitdorstonds and conquers 
the causes of overeating.'' This 
is the reason figure Imlges reap- 
pear and weight soars at the end 
of a rigid diet or reducing course. 
Miss Moore e3q;>lains, adding 
that getting at the source of 
frustrations is a permanent solu- 

As former superintendent in 
one of New York City's leading 
hospitals, and throughout 'her 
nursing career, Miss Moore en- 
countered the numerous illnesses 
which result from many of the 
reducing diets, medicines or 
courses. Not only *are some of 
these methods frequently dan- 
gerous, but too rapid loss of 
weight can lower resistance and 
affect the heart adversely. Miss 
MJoore says in her new book. 

One-Tturd Overweight 

"Although it. is well known 
that carrying extra poundage is 
detrimental to health and 
beauty, approximately one-third 
of American women today are 
overweight," Miss Moore reports. 
"It is no wonder that harmful 
get-slim-quick schemes find 
such a following." 

Miss Moore, who did graduate 
work in psychology at Columbia 
University, believes overeating 
can be properly understood only 
as a common defense mechan- 
ism in the same category with 
chain-smoking, alcoholism or 
stealing. While socially more ac- 
ceptable, overeating is just as 
harmful as other defense mech- 
anisms, she believes. 

The wliole gamut of excuses 
for not redvdng—- f rmn *if s vaj 
glands" to *Yrt least my wrinkles 
won't show"— 4s dealt with in 
TOU CAN TOO, and most of 
them are found to bcrre no basis 
in fact As for fat hiding wrin- 
kles. Miss Moore says: "This I 
doubt And Just think ^iriiat rise 
show»— and if s seen by many 
more people than ever get dose 
enoufh to count wrtnklesr

Request Full Labor Support 
In Howard University Dispute 

NEW YORK— Thomas Richard- [ 
son. chairman of the Anti-Dis- j 
crimination Committee of the 
United Public Workers of Amer- 
ica, announced this week that 
labor organizations throughout 
the country had been called up- 
on to support the Howard Uni- 
versity members of the United 
Public Workers in their efforts 
to improve their economic con- 
ditions. Mr. Richardson said! 
that the request for support had : 
pone to key labor leaders in the j 
various sections of the country. ; 

The Howard University Branch ; 
Of the United Public Workers of j 
America has been engaged in a 
dispute with the officials of the I 
University arising from the fail- 
ure of the University to solve a ; 
number of pressing grievances. ; 

The UniversitT has so . for 
•▼aded its responsibility in set- : 
tllng these grievances by saying ■ 
that public relations "would not 
permit it to meet and discuss 
the«e problems with a union , 
which was expelled from notion- 
ol CIO during recent internal I 
orgonizationol fight in that or- 
ganization. { 

Howard employees list the fol- 
lowing as some of th^ key griev- '■ 
ances: j 

1. Inadequate p<xy and refusal i 
of the University to pay an al- ' 
ready granted increase on the 
regular pay checks. 

2. Failure of the University to 
grant in-grode and longevity in- 
creases thus causing some Ho- , 
word University employees to i 

lose up to $4,00Q over o period of 

3. Inadequate retirement sys- 
tem which causes some retired 
University employees to draw as 
little as $25 per month. 

4. Wholesal and unjust layoffs 
omong teocbers and non-teach- 
ers. -. j< 

5. Arbitrary refusal of the Uni- 
versity's Board of Trustees to re- 
new the contract between the 
Howard Branchi of the United 
Public Workers and the Univer- 
sity. (The employees point out 
that their union has had con- 
tractural relations with the Uni- 
versity since 1945.)

Hiring Halls 

NORTH BEND, Ore. — West 
Coast longshoremen will fight to 
maintain their hiring halls. i 

"Vfe will ktrike, and we will 
call upon whaterer friends we 
hare to support us in whaterer 
fashion they can in such a, 
fight." said a statement adopted 
today by the Longshore, Ship- 
clerks Olid Wolking Boss Caucus 
of the International Longshore- 
men's & Warehousemen's Union 
in a session here last week. 

The caucus recommended 
non-compliance with a recent 
order of the National Labor Re- 
jlations Board ordering the union 
to cease giving effect to its con- 

The action came in the form 
I of unanimous adoption of a re- 
port of the Coast Labor Relations 
Committee on the hiring hall. '

•»-,. Paris, France 

From the time it was under- 
stood I was going to make this 
trip to Paris, it has been one 
grand rush. 

The plane from Los Angeles 
to New York was about two hours 
late. We had to lay over at Chi- 
cago for repairs. But all of us 
were very glad those repairs 
could be made on the ground, 
and that something didn't go 
wrong when we were a. mile or 
so above terra firma, wher^ no 
repairs could be made. 

When we reached New York, 
however, about 11 p.m. Friday, 
August 11, some of my friends 
■"were waiting there for me and 
they accompanied me to the 
Commodore Hotel where reserva- 
tions had been made for me. It 
was very convenient for plane 
connection the next day. 

I got a few hours* good rest in 
New York, and then was ready 
for the next hop on this my first 
trip abroad. 

My waiting hours in New York 
were spent with that grand little 
lady. Shirley Graham, whose 
literary achievements swell her 
heart rather than her head. 

With her pen and her vocie 

lirley joins with the people all 
ler the world in their plea for 

»ce. She believes as so many 
of us do. but ^^•ho are afraid to 
speak out, that the threat of an 
atomic bomb destruction is but 
one of the fearful threats hang- 
ing over' us. And that it is not 
the greatest. 

She feels that "subversives" 
from other parts of the world — 
as the powers that be choose to 
label them — do not menace our 
peace and freedom at home in 
the US.\ at all. Rather the danger 
to the United States government 
stemsTfrom our own stubborn re- 
sistance to the truth. That so 
long aJ^we permit graft and cor- 
ruption a free hand in business 
and politics, the greedy few will 
keep the millions of workers and 
common people fthe masses) in 
human slavery, and world peace 
— the Holy Grail — which we -the 
people must find, retreats farther 
and farther from our grasp. 

We had a wonderful time to- 
gether. In addition to the stub- 
bom resistance to the truth of 
the American f>eople, there is 
also our indifference, our com- 
placency, our apathy. The people 
of New York aren't any more in- 
terested in their government 
than we are in California. When 
compilations are made after each 
llection, the percentages of those 
^ho vote is only around 50 — the 
"same as in California. The won- 
der is that we have as good a 
government as we have! 

Of course. New York has Vito 

Marcantonio. But when it comes 
down to fine points, his vote in 
the House of Representatives 
counts only one. The same as 
Rankin's. Or Eastland's. Or any 
of the other reactionaries. We 
ought to have at least 300 Vito 
Marcantonios in the House of 
Representatives, and about 50 
like him in the U. S. Senate.^ 
Then it wouldn't make any dif- 
ference who was president of the 
United States, whether Truman, 
or Dewy, or even Hoover. Con- 
gress would make the laws, and 
if any president dared to. veto 
them, they would be passed right 
over his veto. 

Wonder how long* it will take 
us to learn to elect progressives 
to Congress, instead of going all 
out to elect only a president. 

Well, it is now 4:30 p.m. same 
day. New York time, and there 
on the ground near the gate of 
the Marine Terminal La Guardia 
Field is that giant Constellation^ 
breathing hard and flapping her 
wings, making ready for the 
flight from New York to Paris. 

It was a beautiful afternoon, 
and from New York to Gander. 
Newfoundland, our first and 
only stop, there were but a few 
mild ripples on the air waves. 

AlM)ut two hours' ride out of 
Gander we struck what appeared 
to be a storm at sea. but not 
too rough. The only thing that 
frightened me was the speed. At 
New York we were told that the 
flight would be sixteen hours. 
Our captain cut it down four 
hours, which made us reach Paris 
four hours ahead of time. 

So this is it! 

I am in Paris. France, at the 
Parisares de la Paix 2. Rue de 
jL'Elysee. Paris VIII. France. 
I When I think even of trjirig to 
I describe Paris, I lose completely 
j any descriptive ability. And 
! names! And words! That's an- 
other story. 

I once studied, or thought I 

I studied French. This morning, 

i my first experience. I tried to 

[^ order breakfast. A sweet little 

French girl asked me, I presume, 

what I wanted. 

I answered in English. "Coffee 
and toast." She didn't understand. 
Then I tried French, or what I 
intended to be French. The look 
on her face made me feel she 
didn't understand a word I had 

Then I resorted to sign lan- 
guage. I put my hand lo my 
mouth, as if drinking from a 
cup, and drew an imaginary 
slice of toast on the table with 
my finger. 

I got a cup of the blackest cof- 
fe and the toughest bread I be- 

Edith Sampson 
Fails TcfGel 
U. N. Position 

Premature repeats earlier this 
week that President Truman 
would appoint Edith Sampson a 
delegate to the UN General As- 
sembly fizzled Thursday when 
announcement of the five ap- 
pointees was made and did not 
include Mrs. Sampson's name. 

Heralded as a refutation of a 
so-called Russian charge that 
the United States practices dis- 
crimination, the supposed ap- 
pointment was given wide cov- 
erage in the Negro press. 

Obserrers who expressed the 
opinion thai any app^ntment 
receiTed by Mrs. Sampson would 
be a reward for her unwavering 
devotion to the odniinistration< 
p<Mlnted out that raciol discrimi- 
nation can not be removed by 
appointing a single Negro to a 
high post.

he was {Mesident of the Broad-

and her daughter Fayne Cole- 
man of 411 East Forty-seventh

Howard stated he had known the 
Levy's for 30 years. He said they 
had been a tenant of his since 
1941 in the house they occupy 
at the Forty -seventh street ad- 

Howard said, the son and 
daughter of Mrs. Lery had 
worked for him when he opened 
the Villa Arlington House, on 
West Adams boulevard. It was 
crt that time, he said, Mrs. Levy 
asked him to odd her in pur- 
chasing some ia^me property* 
She told him, he | said, she only 
had $1,000 in cash.. Howard said 
he assisted her in obtaining 
loans totalling $18,300 to huild

This building, the newspa^r 
article stated, is yet unfinished 
and is the basis of Mrs. Lfvy 
and her daughter's suit. Howard 
emphatically denied he is in 
anyway responsible for Mrs. 
Levy's alleged plight. He said 
Mrs. Levy and daughter have 
received regular statements each 
month up until June of 1950. He 
also, stated, she has signed all

So said Earl S. Ricker, district

company's continuing problems 
here — an increasing number of 
cases recorded each month

its best, the manager pointed 
out, to keep the lines open and 
the equipment in good working 
order but it also must rely on the

Ricker listed the following 
points for subscription to watch 
at al times: 

1) Replace the receiver pr<^>er-

2) See that books or magazines

3) Keep the telephone out of 
reach of small children who ; 
might lift the receiver. 

4) Keep the telephone in such |

S— The CalifonMa Eagle, 
— Friday, Augwst 2S, 1950 


Hatv MA^nff IHust 
We Waii^ 

We've been agitating for 
FEPC ever since World War II 
ended, after we had had a taste 
'of it during that war. We've 
gained some ground. A few of 
the states have laws which make 
discrimination in employment 
Illegal, and almost everywhere 
in the North it is illegal to show 
discrimination or to have segre- 
gation in any public place of en- 
tertainment or eating or recrea- 

But too often that's as far as 
it goes. We have laws. But we 
don't obey them. We seek for 
loc^holes to avoid obeying them. 

A business man in Charlotte, 
N. C, upon being asked his opin- 
ion of FEPC in the South, com- 
pared his attitude and that of 
most Southerners with that of 
the people of the North, pointing 
especially to New York, and 
called us plain hypocrites! 

"We . have segregation openly 
and honestly," he said. "You are 
hypocrites about it. What about 
your fine restaurants? I haven't 
heard of Negroes in any large 
numbers being served in the 

Stork Club Sure, you let the 

Negroes ride your subways with 
you. Theoretically, he has equal 
rights and freedom. But does he? 
How about Negroes liivng like 
animals in a cage in Harlem, in 
slums far worse than anything 
existing in the South? What be- 
sides lip service, do you do for 
the Negro in the North? Yet you 
point the finger at us and tell 
us what to^ do. It doesn't make 

So far as that reference to 
"slums" is concerned, it could 
apply to almost any city, includ- 
ing Los Angeles. And not only to 
Negro people, but also to oil 
people who haven't the money 
to buy or build a home or to pay 
the rents asked in the high rent 
districts. But outside of the cit- 
ies, we doubt if there's any place 
anywhere in the United States 
that can equal the horror of the 
share-croppers' condition — vir- 
tual slavery without the subsis- 
tence given a slave. 

But anyway, in this poll of the 
South conducted by the Interna- 
tional News Service, the con- 
census of opinion seems to be 
that it would not be wise to have 
FEPC in the South. Even the lib- 
erals say the people should be 
•^educated" for it first. That it 
won't do any good to force such 
legislation down their throats. 

But that's the sort of argu- 
ment that has been used for ev- 
ery piece of progressive legisla- 
tion, on matter how mild, that 
"has ever been enacted! When 
there is no law, you have noth- 
ing to appeal to but a man's 
sense of justice. And when he 
"has no sense of justice, at least 
so far as we are concerned, it's 
a sorry business trying to get 
anything done through him. 

When you have a law, you 
have a tool to work with. A wea-

Again comes the almost heart- 
breaking effort of American citi- 
zens who are politically aware, 
to get their fellow Americans to 
do their duty for their country. 

This duty is such a simple 
thing. It requires so little effort. 
It is not at all like shouldering a 
gun and marching off to war, 
perhaps never to see your home 
and loved ones again. If every 
American citizen performed this 
simple duty, if he had performed 
it throughout the years, our boys 
would not now be fighting in 
Korea, 8000 miles away. 

That simple duty, so easy to 
perform, is just to vote on each 
election day. To study the prin- 
ciples involved in that election. 
To vote for the candidates who 
stand for those principles. 

But before you can vote, you 
must first be registered. That, 
too, is very easy. The deputy 
registrar will help you. You will 
find a deputy registrar sitting at 
almost every market, in the pub- 
lic library, on the street corners, 
wherever people are wont to 

gather. There may be one in 
your church Sunday! 

There are only a few days left 
to register in order to vote in the 
election in November. So if you, 
yourself, do not see a deputy 
registrar, or cannot find one, ask 
your grocer, ask your neighbor, 
ask your pastor, ask anyone 
where to go. You'll find one eas- 
ily enough if you really want to. 

Don't shirk your duty to Amer- 
ica, to our boys, now. Under our 
Constitution and our form of 
government, we, the people of 
the United States can have any- 
thing at all we want. ANY- 
THING. By voting for it. The rea- 
son we have' wars, the reason 
we have so much unrest, so 
much chaos, is because we 
American citizens haven't taken 
as much interest in our govern- 
ment as we should. 

NOW, when the danger is right 
at our doors, we begin to bestir 
ourselves. And it is not yet too 
late. Don't shirk your duty as an 
American citizen. Register to 
vote NOW. 

Consider This li¥eU 


The Los Angeles Board of Su- 
pervisors has passed an ordin- 
ance making it necessary for 
memt)ers of the Communist 
party to register with the Sher- 
iff. Next Tuesday, the City 
Council will hold a public hear- 
ing on a similar proposal. 

It is possible to be caught up 
in the hysteria and abnormal 
spirit of the times and look upon 
these measures as acts of patri- 
otic statesmanship and foresight 
but this is too far from the 
truth in the light of past and 
curernt history. 

The catch-all aspects of the 
ordinances passed by the Board 
of Supervisors give rise to sus- 
picion that fascism rather than 
democratic Americanism is the 
aim. They would have you be- 
lieve that in order to curb the 
so-called international conspir- 
asy of Communism they must 
legislate away the right to think, 
speak and examine, of all Ame- 

What are these subversive or- 
ganisations whose membership 
must register with the Sheriffs 
office? Will tne members of the 
NAACP have to obey this dic- 
tum? Will it henceforth be an 
act of subversion to speak out 
against Jimcrow and the second 
class citizenship stahis of the 
Negro people? 

Is is conspiracy to speak out 
against the conspiracy of white 
supremacy? Will the fight 
against police brutality, and the 
struggle to outlaw discrimina- 
tion against Negro teachers In 
the school system become a part 
of the clear and an present dan- 

The Board of Supervisors have 
a responsibility to the Negro 
people which they must face 
squarely in this situation. Pri- 
marily they must resist the tem- 
tation to classify action directed 
toward full freedom for the Ne- 
gro people, carried out by the 
Negro people and their allies, as 

We are opposed to legislation 
that would fill concentration 

camps with large numbers of 
American citizens who dare to 
speak their minds, though they 
speak in opposition to the gov- 
ernment, for we know that 
among them will be Negro citi- 
zens whose only disloyal acts 
are contained in their never- 
ending struggle to be respected 
and treated with equality . . . 
on the battlefields and in civil- 
ian life.

The story of how Howard Uni- 
versity has refused to grant bar- 
gaining rights to members of 
the United Public Workers of 
America, employed at the Uni- 
versity, and the ousting of Dean 
William West, is told on another 
page of this paper. The follow- 
ing is taken from editorial col- 
umn of the Washington Afro- 
American, August 12, 1950: 

That odor you smell in educa- 
tional circles probably grows out 
of the employment practices at 
Howard University. 

The case of Dean William West 
is the latest in point. After more 
than a quarter of a century as 
the friend and father confessor 
of young men struggling for an 
education, he received what his 
friends brand as shabby treat- 

Dean West had eaten his 
chicken, wiped his mouth and 
settled back to enjoy the after- 
dinner speeches at a banquet 
when he was shocked and sur- 
prised to discover that the fete 
was in honor of his own retire- 
ment which was already in ef- 
fect although he had received no 
official notice. 

His food stuck in his throat, 
and he probably developed ulcers 
and faced a heart attack. 

This comes on the heels of the 
annual flareup over the reduc- 
tion in staff which affected other 
instructors the same way. 

Howard University certainly 


Has American history ever witnessed a more immoral episode 
than the directed attacks on the campaign for peace? 

There have been other periods when those in control of our 
nation have sunk to the most hellish depths of infamy — for ex- 
ample, in their support <rf slavery and in their betrayal of the 
freed slaves during Reconstruction days — but never a more im- 
moral period than now when they want to make peace itself 

In H. (for Hoover) Truman's "Christian nation" the Prince of 
Peace, the founder ot Christianity, would be jailed for treason. 

Such a hate-filled war on peace and brotherhood could be 
engineered only by those who have lost all faith in their fellow- 
men and democracy, who haye lost all civilized attributes, who 
have ceased to he hum^n beings. They have become beasts. They 
are fascists. 

The bi-partisan smearing of the peace campaign, abetted by 
those who have pretended to moral leadership fn our land — yea, 
even the Federal Council of Churches of Christ, the Synagogue 
Council of America, the National Catholic Welfare Conference — 
and have Judas-like betrayed our trust, is of course an inevitable 
development of the cold war. 

We can see that the silencing of the liberal voices on the air, 
in the press and movies, the jailing of trade unionists and leaders 
of the Communist Party, were necessary to the bi-partisans to kill 
opposition to their war drive. Now they want to crush those who 
still have not been intimidated. 

A government which commits itself to a domestic and foreign 
policy based on brute force — material power and an assumed 
monopoly of atom bombs — will inevitably try to outlaw peace. 
Now it is attempting to belittle the dangers of its own super- 
weapon in order to prepare us to accept more readily an atomic 

The very casualriess with which government spokesmen and_ 
owners of the press and radio are offering us advice on "what 
do when the A-bombs fall" is more than horrifying. It dami 
them as forever outside the pale of humanity. They have already 
given us up for lost . . . ! 


Why don't they work as hard for peace? What have the people 
of America to fear from peace? Would peace destroy our sons 
and our cities? Would it deprive us of homes and jobs? Would 
it make the lives of our Negro and Jewish and other minorities 
more insecure? Is it not clear that the best and highest form of 
Americanism today is to campaign for peace? 

T^e peace-haters say they would favor peace, if it were an 
"American peace" — and they damn the present peace campaign 
as "Communist inspired." While we're not awafe that peace too 
has become a Wall Street monopoly, and it is difficult to under- 
stand that there can be an American peace different and separate 
from world peace, we must answer them with: So what! 

While the facts show simply that a group of freedom loving 
men and women gathered in Stockholm to initiate the peace 
campaign, and needed no orders from Moscow to love peace — we 
must assert: So what! What if the Soviet delegates participated 
in that conference? Does that make peace unclean? If the Soviet 
leaders want peace, must America's officials automatically react 
with war? 

If our leaders are so concerned about the USSR's support of 
such movements, why wasn't the world peace eampoign Americaa- 
iaspired? What a wonderful thing this could be! Wouldn't it be 
a more certain way to win us moral leadership of the free peoples 
than to arm their oppressors everywhere, imprison our best minds, 
and call on our youth to form an "army of killers?" 

So what if the Communists prefer peace! We wont peace too — 
and the more who demand it the surer we are of getting it! We're 
sick of this national insanity which dictates that we don't dare do 
a decent thing if the Soviets are doing it — or if we do such a 
thing we must justify it by claiming it will help "stop those 

We reject this suicidal corruption of the American way of l>f*^ ■ 
We reject this phony Americanism which can stomach the poliMK^' 
slaying of Negroes and the freeing of Nazis for "good behavid^Pfj 
while inspiring force and violence against good Americans who 
work for peace. 


We charge the haters of peace with Satanic sacrilege in de- 
claring — as does a Drew Pearson — that our drive to war, our 
creation of another Spanish tragedy in Korea, is the American 
way of practising the teachings of Christ, a new crusade. 

We proudly claim that it is we who circulate the petitions 
and speak up for peace who are the new crusaders. We boldly 
join with the 260 million good men and women all over the world 
who have already signed the peace pledge. For ours is the way 
of life . . . and in t*ie spirit of the faith which the killers of peace 
betray, we promise:

be taken at a time when other 
schools are in the process of re-

that those who are to be dropped 
can bargain in the open market. 

Sending out notices after em-

works a hardship on those in 
the teaching professicm. 

Moreover, rumblings in the 
lov/et brackets of menial em- 
ployees indicate that Howard's 
inhumanity does not end at the 
teaching level. 

Using the ousting of the Unit- 
ed Public Workers from the CIO 
as an excuse to deny bargaining 
rights to a large group of low 

paid workers, the University has 
turned deaf ears to the pleas of 
this group for relief of legitimate 

Simply igrnoring these people 
because their union was a vic- 
tim of the CIO's so-called Red 
purge does not make their prob- 
lems disappear into thin air. 

If Howard's menials are suf- 
fering hardship, as is contended, 
then the institution should find 
some way of correcting the eyils 
within the framework of good 
labor-management relations. 

Having our greatest institution, 
which should be a model of 
leadership, branded as indulging 
in vicious anti-labor practices 
against its own race does not 
speak well for the "capstone 
education." \

It all comes from the fact that

Mrs. Charlotta Bass, Editor 
The California Eagle 
^Los Angeles, Calif. 
Dear Mrs. Bass, 

Young men are accused of be- 
ing "unambitious, irresponsible, 
foolish guys who should be sent 
off to the army to learn how to 
take discipline." 

The foregoing baloney is, ob- 
viously, propaganda ^or a tre- 
mendous army, which would be 
no good for the country. Karl 
H. von Wiegandt pointed this 
out in the Scm Francisco Exotini- 
BM. Mr, von Wiegandt, a well- 
known newspaperman, inter- 
viewed General Heinz Guderian 
and other experts, and reached 
the conclusion that America 
would fall into a Russian trap 
4f it made excessive expenditures 
on the military program. 

Even Hearst mossbacks know 
4here is a limit to militarism, 
Although it is far from them to 
;»how up the nonsensical stuff 
which some o 1 d maiiiacs are 
putting out in their garrison- 
state propaganda. So I will. 

First this junk about "no am- 
bition." What this really means 
is that it isn't our ambition to 
be treated like dogs. We would 
be crazy if we were eager beav- 
ers about working, because we 
won't get anywhere working vui 
heads off. Promotions? Not 
hardly, if you're under 27. Lay- 
offs? But definitely. 

Next, the malarky about 'ir- 
responsibility." What this means 
Is that we don't want to take the 
\)lame for the mess that moss- 
backs make out of the country. 
Sometimes you are "irresponsi- 
ble" t)ecause you dont think you 
can afford family responsibility. 
Which you can't, financially. 

Or. sometimes, young drivers 
are "irresponsible" because they 
get involved in accidents on 
roads built to suit mossbacks 
and in moss-back-engineered 
automobiles while being pester- 
ed by mossback back-seat driv- 
ers "teenicides." Just how far 
can this Hitler big-lie stuff go?) 

Young men have responsibil- 
ities which the mossbacks refuse 
to understand. Indeed, responsi- 
bilities arising out of socially 
irresponsible activity of the moss 
backs themselves, who are de- 
void of any integrity. 

Of course the mossbacks have 
their contemptible propaganda 
about young women, as well as 
about young men. In realtity 
young women are usually indus- 
trious (often too industrious for 
their own good), efficient inde- 
pendent, spirited, and observant. 
Young Mexican-American wo- 
men, in addition, are perennially 
cheerful and congenial, and 
have deep insight into all kinds 
of everyday social situations. To 
the mossback Yankee imperial- 
ist mentality, they are "tortil- 

Young women in general are 
expected to produce offspring to 
work and shoot for the moss- 
backs. Beginning at age fifteen, 
they get called "superficial," 
•giddy," "flighty," "over ambit- 
ious," "selfish," et cetera ad in- 
finitum, because they aren't pro- 
ducing little work-horses and 
rifle- tot ers.

The California Un-American 
Activities Committee, headed by 
Jack Tenney, must stand trial 
for damages because of the al- 
leged violation of the civil rights 
of a U.S. citizen. 

A Mr. Brandhove circulated a 
petition among members of the 
State Legislature, asking that no 
more appropriations be granted 
the Tenney Committee. He was 
called before the committee, 
charged with a misdemeanor, 
but later the charges were dis- 
missed by the court. Brandhove 
then sued the committee for 
damages for violation of his civil 

Now, getting back to this 
business about "ambition." If a 
young person is naive enough to 
expect "fair" return for being in- 
dustrious, he or she is 'over- 
ambitious." If he or she is wise 
to the game, the mossbacks yell 
— "unambitious!"

William L. Patterson 
National Executive Secretary 
Civil Rights Congress 
New York 17, N. Y. 
Dear Mr. Patterson: 

Yours of Aug. 7, 1950 has been 
received, and I am very sorry 
to hear of the dangerous threat 
to the Civil Rights Congress. 

I am deeply grateful for all 
that the Civil Rights Congress 
has done and is doing for me 
in the fight to save my life. I 
also appreciate the great work 
it has done in aiding many other 
unfortunate Negroes throughout 
the United States to obtain jus- 
tice and equal protection of the 
law, when same had been de- 
nied them. 

To enjoin the Civil Rights Con- 
gress, by the enactment of any 
bill, law or legislative act, or 
any bill, law, etc. ,that could be 
used towards that end, would be 
a devastating blow to the Negn^o 
in his fight for equal rights and 
protection of the law; and to all 
liberal and progressive-minded 
people. Therefore, were I free to 
do so, I would gladly work un- 
ceasingly to defeat the passage 
of the insidious and pernicious 
"Mundt- Ferguson Bill, which I 
am fairly well familiar with. 

However, due to my unfortun- 
ate position of being- confined 
here on "death row" at San 
Quentin, awaiting execution, 1 
am unable to be of any help 
to you. I can only render my 
moral support, which I do. 

The rules egoverning the prison 
will not allow me' to sign and 
return the form, as requested by 
you, as much as I would like 
to do so. 

However, I would like for you, 
acting in your capacity of Sec- 
retary of the Civil ights Congress 
to feel free to use my name and/ 
or case in any way, or at any 
time, that will help defeat the 
heretofore mentioned Bill; or in 
any way that would be of a 
credit to the Civil Rights Con- 
gress and its cause. 

I sincerely hope that all free- 
dom loving people will unite, 
and fight day and night to de- 
feat the Mundt-Ferguson Bill, so 
that all above mentioned peo- 
ple, and progressive organiza- 
tions may enjoy at least two 
of the basic freedoms, i.e., free- 
dom of speech and freedom from 
fear. There is much I would like 
to say on the subject, but to 
ensure this missive meeting ap- 
proval for mailing, I must re- 
frain from doing so. 

With best personal regards, 
and wishing the Civil Rights 
Congress a long and successful 
life, I am, 

Yours sincerely, 
(Signed) Wesley R. Wells 

P.S.: Please give my best re- 
gards to Aubrey Grossman. 
Thanking you kindly in advance.. 

August 21, 1950 
Dear Editor: 

No doubt the enclosed letter 
from Wesley Robert Wells will 
interest you and your readers. 
Mr. Wells is a Negro who lives 
under the shadow of a death 
sentence in San Quentin prison, 
Calif., for throwing a cuspidor 
at a prison guard though the 
guard was not killed. The Wells 
case has bec<Mne a symbol of 
what happens to a Negro who 
with the greatest of physical 
courage for a number of years 
stands up and defies prison jini- 
crow. Out of the Wells case de- 
veloped the lawsuit which is now 
pending, filed by the Civil Rights 
Congress challenging segrega- 
tion in California prisons. 
Yours very truly, 

National Organizing Secretary 
Civil Rights Congress 
New York, N. Y.

Bt B«t. Joha H. OwMS 

The machinery of the United 
Nations was hailed by a war- 
weary world as a realistic ap- 
proach to the problem of main- 
taining peace among the nations. 
The subscribing governments de- 
sired some type of international 
tribunal in which the maximum 
confidence of each nation might 
be imposed, for the impartial ad- 
judication of potential conflicts 
between nations. Good neighbor 
relations between the United 
States and her Latin neighbor, 
just south of the Rio Grande, are 
keystones in the structure for a 
successfully functioning United 
Nations. Any rupture of these 
good neighbor relations might 
strain the peace-making facili- 
ties of the _ United Nations for 
reasons which shall appear here- 
after in this article. 

Citizens of the United States 
are more conscious of Mexico 
than any of the other Latin Na- 
tions of the Western Hemisphere. 
There are many reasons for this: 
The proximity of Mexico to the 
United States, and its accessibil- 
ity for travel, trade and inter- 
course between the citizens of 
the United States and Mexico, 
has mutually acquainted the 
citizens of these nations with 
each other. Many former citizens 
of Mexico now live permanently 
within our borders, and large 
numbers of Mexicans are used 
annually to harvest the crops of 
the ranches of the Southwest. 
And finally, much of the south- 
west area of the United States 
was once a part of Mexico and 
in acquiring the territory, we al- 
so acquired the social traditions. 
many of the customs, much of 
the art and architecture and 
some of the language of Mexico. 

Although Mexico is neither 
the largest in territorial area nor 
in population of the Latin Na- 
tions of the Western Hemisphere, 
its identity of interests with the 
United States causes Mexico to 
bulk large in any and all Pan- 
American affairs. None of the 
Latin Nations look with favor 
upon intervention in their in- 
ternal affairs by their larger, 
English-speaking brother north 
of the Rio Grande, even though 
he may be benevolently dis- 
posed. They are not all in favor 
of the application of the Monroe 
Doctrine. Perhaps the history of 
our foreign relations in the past 
with our Latin neighbors may 
furnish the clue for a solution to 
this attitude. 

n. S. Seizures 

Aside from the controversial 
aspects of the case which are too 
voluminous for this discussion, 
the Spanish - speaking nations 
have not forgotten that much of 
the Southwestern area of the 
United States was acquired from 
in the War of 1848. Many Latins 
regard this as nothing more nor 
less than a land grab on the 
part of a larger and aggressor 
nation against a smaller and 
weaker nation. At the time of its 
acquisition, many prominent 
citizens of the United States re- 
garded this as acquisition at ter- 
ritory through conquest. The 
martyred President, Abraham 
Lincoln, then a Representative in 
the National Congress from the 
State of Illinois, denounced the 
War of 1M8 and the acquisition 

of this territory from Mexico on 
the floor of Congress. 

The Latins still remember and 
it is common knowledge ol stu- 
dents of international affairs 
within the United States, i that 
<mly acts of shoddy foreign di- 
plomacy secured to the United 
States the right to construct the 
Panama Canal through manipu- 
lations which made Panama in- 
dependent (A the State of Colom- 
bia. Many of our Senators and 
Representatives d^nounced this 
act on the part of the United 
States as unethical and incom- 
patible with the respect which 
sovereign nations mutually owe 
to each other. And finally. 
President Woodrow Wilson's un- 
provoked shelling of Vera Cr\iz 
about 1912 or thereabouts is still 
painfully fresh in the memory 
of many Latin.s 

With this background in mind, 
any rupture of the good neighbor 
relations between Mexico and 
the United States, however much 
it might be predicated upoh rea- 
sonable ractors, would strain the 
facilities of the United Nations 
for peaceful adjudication. We 
must recall that with the excep- 
tion of the country- of Brazil, in 
which Portguese is spoken, all 
of the sovereign nations south 
of the Rio Grande speak Span- 
ish. This is a mutual bond with- 
in itself. Hence any rupture of 
the friendly relations between 
Mexico and the United States, 
despite affirmations of neutral- 
ity on the part of the respective 
governments of the other Latin 
nations, would leave the motives 
of this nation open to suspicion 
and distrust on the part of citi- 
zens of these Latin nations. 
n. S. PTesti9e? 

It is the consensus of enlight- 
ened opinion that the United 
States, in co-operation with 
Birtain to the extent that she 
may cooperate, is attempting to 
influence the political thought 
of much of Europe and the 
Western Hemisphere to the ex- 
tent that they will be in gen- 
eral opposition to certain polit- 
ical philosophies with which the 
United States is not in accord- 
To do this we must build up 
sufficient prestige in the sphere 
of political morality to the ex- 
tent that we may win the al- 
legiance of these nations. Alle- 
giance must be won; it can be 
■bribed or coerced only to a very 
limited and unreliable extent. 

Hence, we must prove to our 
Latin neighbors that we are 
worthy of leadership by superior 
diplomacy based upon equity 
and mutuality of respect for 
sovereign nations, and a will- 
ingrness to negotiate with weaker 
nations, bi -lateral and multi- 
lateral treaties rather than uri- 
uateral treaties which Anglo- 
Saxon nations have in -the past 
become notoriously for infam- 
ously enforcing the latter upon 
many of the non- Anglo-Saxon 
nations. This hegemony of the 
nations of the Western Hemi- 
sphere by the United States will 
be predicated upon its ability to 
free itself from the untold hor- 
rors, savageries, absurdities and 
infamies of inferior and superior 
races. And only if its citizens 
can become accustomed to rules 
<^ decent, social living and' ac- 
customed to ^)bserving them 
without a ma^amum of force 
and compuIsiiMi. 

It is then and only then when 
the denunciation of the morality 
of any political philooophy on 

the part of the United States will 
appear other than rank hjT)oc- 
risy to many nations of the 
world. These substantial and 
comprehehsive rights of decent 
social living must become more 
than pious aspirations to be 
given rffect only when circum- 
stances c<mveniently permit. 
And the society or nation which 
possesses them, has laid the firm 
foundations for a really healthy 
and fully equalitaiian democ- 
racy, worthy of emulation by 
any nation. Upon the basis of 
such a sound democracy, it is 
possible to win the allegiance of 
the nations south of the Rio 
Grande to the extent that, with- 
out the practice of questionable 
dipliMoiacy, we may be looked up 
to as the logical leader of the 
democracies of the world. This 
is a preferential method to cor- 
ruption, bribery or coercion. Then 
will the superiority of our social 
order become clearly more de- 
sirable to that which may orig- 
inate in some parts of A»a or 
Europe, and our hegemony of 
the democratic way of life may 
be assured.

This is the story. 

It is a real story, exciting, 
grii^ng. It is the best, perhaps, 
because you have the biggest 
role to play in it. 

The" story begins on a street 
car, and you are seated on it on 
your way to your job in the ship- 
yards or the aircraft plants. Or 
maybe you are riding in a motor 
car, and you are one of the pick- 

At any rate, he is sitting next 
to you. 

Who is he? 

He is the new fellow from 
Texas or Oklahoma or Missis- 
sippi or Georgia or Alabama who 
has come to Los Angeles in 
search for "a job in the defense.'' 
And he's found it. 

You sit next to him and you 
think how green he is. You wish 
he wouldn't, wear a loud suit 
with the hanging coat-tail. May- 
be you sit there and think 'Tex- 
a^! Humph 1" or "Mississippi! 
Humphr' or whatever the state 
may be. 

If you do this, you are wrong, 
for you are missing th story. The 
great stor>'. The epic stor>'. 

He has a story, this man who 
sits next to you in the loud suit. 

It has great stark outlines. 
They are: 





That is the story of Texas, 

I Oklahoma, Mississippi, Alabama, 

I Georgia. Maybe not the story of 

the talented tenth <w the upper 

crust. But it is the real story. 

It is the story of desperate 
yearning for small things: new 
pants, once a year; turkey, once 
a year, maybe; freedom, never. 

Yes, that is his story, this 
neighbor of yours, with loud 
clothes and konked hair. 

Can you imagine what this 
meajis to him? This fifty dollars 
a week? This going to the big 
shows and eating in the big 
restaurants and bein^dressed to 

Do you know how Free he 

Do you know that this is all 
he wants? To feel this freedom, 
to drink it up, to let it sing out 
of him, to dance with it, and 
laugh loi/d with it, and ex^Mt 
it, and wring it dry? 

But you know things that he 
doesn't know. You've had the 
breaks. You were raised here. 
This freedom does not intoxicate 
you. It is a flat drink in your 
mouth, for you know K is yet a 
weak drink, not nearly strong 
enough to satisfy real thirst. 

More than this. You know that 
things change, and alwaxs In 

one direction or another toward 
better or worse. 

And you can see the change 
about you . . . changes pointing 
to worse . . . worse . . . worse.

erly open to all who would come.

' Here is the union, trying to set 
itself in two boats, one for black, 
one for white. 

Here is the plant, with no up- 
grading for skilled blade hands. 

Here is the house we live in, 
falling to pieces. And five blocks 
away there is a fine house for 
rent, but we couldn't move, even 
if the people would aall to us.

here. That men are equal. 

Here is the wwking together

Here is the war which takes 
all our sons and binds them to- 
gether, black and white, and 
gives us the same thing to hate, 
and the same thing to love. 

You know there are two pro- 
grams struggling. One, the big 
program : 

Isolate 'em! 

Terrorize 'em! 

The other, the people's pro- 
gram: Unity: A man's a man —

I got to make that guy next to

thing you Fight For. 

And he's not so backward as 
you think. 

He went to the meeting Sun-

people mad because their rights 
were wronged. And he felt a 
great good feeling grow inside 
erf him when the big man said: 

"We've got to lick Hitler to- 
gether ... or else we'll all be 
slaves together!"

"No Way Out" Presents 
New Startling Approach 
To Racial Problem 


In writing this review of 20th 
Century Fox's long awaited 
Zanuck production of the highly 
controversial film "NO WAY 
OUT," I wish to emphasize to my 
reading public, that the opinion 
and stand I have taken in this 
method of critique, is sincere 
and honest in regards to racial- 
ism as well as the over-all pic- 
ture of casting and dramatic ap- 

At the invitation of the studio, 
along with prominent members 
of the Medical Association as my 
guests who were both Negro and 
White, I had an opfportunity to 
study and analyze this picture 
under an atmosphere a little dif- 
ferent than sitting in a neigh- 
borhood movie house. "NO WAY 
OUT' is extremely different from 
the rnany racial pictures that 
have preceded it, in that it pre- 
sents the T^egro as a typical 
citizen in an average city. The 
synopsis of the screen story is 
stark and real drama of a Negro 
caught in the whirlpool of the 
white man's everyday world, it 
illustrate? to a startling point 
the hate, bigotry and selfishness 
the Negro is up against in his 

everyday life, which has been 
termed as Negro hating. The 
story involves the development 
which starts when a white pa- 
tient in a county hospital acci- 
dentally dies under the treatment 
of a Negro Interne. The victim's 
hoodlum, Negro-ljating brother 
(Richard Widmark), not content 
with inspiring a race riot in re- 
prisal, seeks vengeance which 
two people seek to avert: a white 
physician (Stephen McNally) 
who is shocked out of his pas- 
sive, non -racial torpor; and a 
derelict white girl (Linda Dar-" 
nell) who first aids, finally man- 
ages to thwart the vengeance 

I am proud to say the work by 
the Negro members of the cast, 
stand out for the fine and fin- 
ished presentation combined 
with dignity. I could not write 
any further in this review with- 
out citing the splendid and 
breath-taking dramatic work of 
Sidney Poitier for his portrayal 
of the Negro Physician, Dr. 
Brooks, in which this dignified 
young thespian gives a stand- 
out Hollywood debut p>erform-

Rivei Boy 
Proves Good 

Had the wonderful opportun- 
ity ot" seeing the premiere of 
Orchid Gables showing of 'River 
Boy" with two separate cai?ts 
working, one is able to compare 
emotions, reactions, etc. 

A folk drama written by Grant 
Marshall, playwriting instructor 
at the Pasadena Playhouse, the 
drama was written about people 
who lived in the Willow Patch 
near his home town of Burling- 
ton. Iowa. It stresses the eternal 
optimism of the human race and 
the char:;. — s in the play are in 
a great many cases, character 
studi^ of people with whom he 
was brought up. The guest cast 
was directed by Ted R. Samuel 
and the resident cast directed by 
Tom Purcell. 

Orchid Gables is a resident 
repertory group operating non 
commercially as a free theater to 
enable more pec^le to see classic 
and new plays. 

The two casts of "River Boy" 
have had entirely different di- 
rection, the script is cut differ- 
ently but the characters are the 
same with the same plot. 

Bob Davis tJer* plays the role 
in the guest cast. Maidie Nor- 
man (Bess>.' May Will Hill. 
(Amy*. Laverne Cryor tMa>, 
Bernard Hamilton (Mat>. 

Wirh the two productions the 
main purpose is to stress the 
universal truth that all peoples 
react the same way to given cux- 
cumstances according to their 
individual characteristics. 

The week of the 24th the Guest 
cast will play all 4 nights, fol- 
lowing that, the guest cast will 
play Thursday and Sunday eve- 
nings and the resident cast will 
play Friday and Saturday.

AiQOS Miiburn 
Friday, Aug. 25th 

Amos Miiburn brings his sen- 
sational aggregation to the Ava- 
don Ballroom on Friday, August 
25. Amos has been missing from 
this town fpr too long a time 
and the occasion is a welcome 
home affair. 

Creator of such famous records 
as "Bewildered" Chicken Shack 
Boogie'* and "Blues at Sundown" 
Amos was once a pass word in 
this town and his many many 
fans will all be on hand for this 
great occasion. 

Sensational as a 23-year old 
pianist and vocalist, Milburn's 
records can be found on Juke 
boxes everywhere. His light ap- 
pea'ing voice brings raves from 
his fans and critics alike. In 
plain words, he is box office. 
Since this group was organized 
back in 1946, it has been de- 
manded by promoters through- 
out the country and with the 
type of records this young man 
puts out, it is hard to guess just 
where he will stop. 



No Way Out 

(Continued from Page 14) 
ance. Richard Widmark, who 
plays the role of a Negro hater, 
makes this statement about 
Poitier's work: "That Poitier puts 
60 much feeling into his intona- 
lion and expression that I'm just 
going to look like a ranting 
idiot!" Willowy and lovely Mil- 
dred Joanne Smith who plays 
Poitier's screen wife, gives a true 
and wonderful performance. 

Other featured Negro players 
In the Zanuck film are Dots 
Johnson, Amanda Randolph, Bill 
Walker, Ruby Dee and Ossie 
Davis ,and Maude Simmones. 
Like Poitier, these artists are all 
products of Broadway via the 
American Negro Theater. 
'•This picture is a must to see. 
Here are quotes from several 
physicians who were my guest 
at the studio preview: 

Dr. Lowell S. Goin, nationally 
known Roentgenalogest and 
Pres. of California Physicians 
Service, 65h South Western Ave- 
nue: "I enjoyed the picture very 
much and I am deeply sympa-'

which it is hoped will be 

Dr. Tenero D. Caruso, outstand- 
ing surgeon of the city, 1930

for giving me the opportunity of 
previewing the film "NO WAY

ture delivers a poignant message

in a simple, direct, and startling

Dr. Louis Boddie: Gyneologist 
and obstetrician, "One of the

ex(?ellent actors. 20th Century is 
to be commended for this pic- 

Dr. Wells Forde, outstanding 
surgeon: "NO WAY OUT" is 
dramatic, to the point and grips 
you throughout with its stirring 

Dr. J. Phyrown Taylor, one of 
the foremost practitioners in the 
city: "The most terrific inter- 
racial pictures I have had the 
pleasure of seeing. I sincerely 
recommend this picture." 

To my many readers, "NO 
WAY OUT" should provide the 
greatest step forward in the fight 
against racial prejudice. 

I quote, Frederick O'Neal dis- 
tinguished head of the American 
Negro Theater: "This picture is 
not just a Negro-versus White 
story. It is a real exploration 
into the destructive effects of 
blind and unreasoning hatred. 
Since no other single medium of 
entertainment or education 
reaches the vast audience that a 
motion picture does, 'No Way 
Out' should provide the greatest 
step forward in the fight against 
racial prejudices since the Civil

NEW YORK, (CNS)— Duke El- 
lington, in a history-making 
challenge, reveals this week 
that TV offers an artist "no 
freedom which is his due" and 
"this freedom cannot exist 
where imagination is lacking." 

In an interview with Televi-

nowned composer, who once was 
a young man with a "gig" party 
band on the beat in the nation's 
capital, reevaled that he intend- 
ed to stay away from TV be- 
cause of its- "imagination" (or 
lack of same). 

Said the Duke: 'The light en- 
tertainment programs, without 
exception, are content to slip 
into the variety show format. 
There are too many limitations 
of space; the cameras and the 
lighting §re as yet not flexible 
enough." Mr. Ellington had re- 
ported that he had turned down 
two TV offers (one for a musi- 
cal and the other for an all-Ne- 
gro revue) because he would not 
have "independence" and "free- 
dom from censorship." 

At press time it was announced 
that he has signed for, a 13-week 
TV series, starring Sarah Vaughn. 

Bull Moose Jackson 
And Pearl Bailey 
At Apollo Theatre 

NEW YORK CITY — Beginning 
on Aug. 24, the marquee of the 
Apollo Theatre will be enblaz- 
oned with the names of Bull 
Moose Jackson and Pearl Bailey 
— a mixture that is bound to 
spell box office dynamite for the 
Apollo Theatre. 

In keeping with his policy bf 
bringing bigger and better 
shows to the newly decorated 
Apollo Theatre, manager Frank 
Schiffman chose Bull Moose 
Jackson and his orchestra 'and 
Pearl Bailey as his Labor Day 
Weekend show. 

Bull Moose Jackson has long 
been a Harlem favorite. Since 
his meteoric rise to show busi- 
ness stardom in 1948, the sax 
playing, song stylist, and his 
Buffalo Bearcats have won 
countless popularity polls con- 
ducted by the magazine and 
trade papers of the country. 

Pearl Bailey, long America's 
favorite song comedienne, comes 
to the Apollo Theatre fresh from 
her triumphs as the star of the 
hit musical show "Arms and the 
Girl," which recently closed a 
vary successful run on the main

From Gov't Fruit Fly Project 

Tom Lawrence of the Commit-

force confessions of belief or af- 
filiation from public employees 
and which helps witch-hunt vic-

himself been dismissed from fed- 
eral service. 

Took PcuMport 

Mr.* Lawrence was separated 
from the service of the U. S. De- 
partment of Agriculture after 
slightly over seven months' work 
for the department in Hawaii 
and India. According to a let- 
ter from the director of his sec- 
tion, the reason for this action 
by the government was that 
Lawrence's refusal to answer 
questions as to what organiza- 
tions he had belonged to, and 
FBI reports led to revocation of 
his pass|K)rt by the State De: 

A letter from the chief of the 
Bureou of Entomologr and

charge of disloyalty in explodn- 
ing his dismissal but states that 
without a pKissport Lawrence 
could not serve in India and that

rence on this statement of the 
bureau head. 

Fruit Fly E3q>ert 

Lawrence was a member of an 
expedition to India to study and 
collect the Oriental fruit fly, its 
relatives, and the natural ene- 
mies of these flies. Since the 
Oriental fly is a serious pest of 
growing fruits in Hawaii, there 
is fear of its being imported into 
the great fruit-growing regions 
of the West and causing tremen- 
dous destruction of fruits there.

rence explained that he refused 
to answer' questions as to his as- 
sociations in order to hold a po- 
sition because to do so was de- 
structive of the Civil Service sys- 
tem, supported a rule of fear that 
weakens American and world 
science, and would be contrary 
to the real oaths of loyalty to 
the United States and its Con- 
stitution which he made during 
six 6'/^ years in the Army. 

"I, for one, hove only been 
made more determined to work 
for the interests of the majority 
of our people, for peace, secur- 
ity, ever- improving conditions, 
equality of opportunity for aU, 
regordless of sex or ancestry, the 
things which these laws against 
liberty are actually designed to 
suppress," continued the scien- 

To questions about India Law- 
rence replied that there was 
much dissatisfaction there as a 
result of Nehru's Congress Par- 
ty's failure to keep its promises 
to the people. The masses starve, 
the sanitary conditions are 
shocking, the common laborer's 
wages per month for nine to over 
thirteen hours a day, six or even 
seven days a week, are less than 
low-paid American workers get 
in a day; in fact there has l>een 
practically no improvement since 
the British administration ended. 

The government jails people 
for circulating union literature 
and shoots' them for their poli- 
cies, instead of changing the ma- 
terial conditions ot the root of 
the unrest in the country. 

'The idea of Asiatic self-rule 
has taken hold," the scientist 
added, "and there is consider- 
able resentment of attempts to 
extend foreign ' domination, for 
example that by France in' Inro- 
China, by Britain in Malaya, and

Basora in 

NEW YORK— (CNS>— The me- 
chanical boxer. "Sugar" Ray 
Robinson, fresh from giving a 
master boxing lesson to a very 
interested pupil, Charles Fusari, 
is ready for his fight tonight 
(Friday) at Scranton, Pa., with 
Joso Basora. 

Since the impasse between 
Jake LaMotta and Laurent Dau- 
thille for the middleweight title, 
at Detroit, Andy Niederiter, Jer- 
sey City promoter (who put on 
the Damon Runyon fight for 
Ray>, is reported to have offered 
Rocky Graziano a flat $75.(X)0 to 
meet Robinson. Niedereiter had 
told the press that he had Rob- 
inson under contract for one 
fight in September at Roosevelt 
Stadium, Jersey City. LaMotta 
had been given an option of $75.- 
000 or 40 per cent of the gate to 
defend his middleweight crown 
against Ray, but has run out of 
that possibility with the IBC 
contract for the go with the 
Frenchman. It is said that the 
IBC wanted the same fight but 
only wanted to give Ray 15 per 
cent. Ray rejected that. 

As a result of Ray giving $45.- 
995.52 to the Runyon Fund, the 
possibilities of Robinson and 
Graziano drawing a record 
money crowd is the Jacobs Beach 
rumor. It would be the most 
colo.-ful fight In the Manhattan 
area since Al Singer fought Kid 
Chocolate or Henry Armstrong 
tied gloves with Lou Ambers. It 
would equal, in fisticuffs, the 
Harry Greb-Tlger Flowers melee. 

Robinson Is expected to have 
an easy time with Basora, who 
has no impressive record and is 
even fortunate that' he gets a 
shot at Ray. Ray's camp is anxi- 
ously awaiting the reaction of 
the LaMotta - Dauthille mixup 
from the offices of Abe Greene, 
xNB.\ president.

Grambling Tigers in 
ll-Game Grid Slate 

GRAMBLING La.— (Special) — 
Coach Eddie Robinson announced 
Wednesday that the Grambling 
college Tigers will play an 11- 
game football schedule this fall. 

The ballyhoo which usually 
follows the schedule release was 
ha.stily shushed by the coaching 
staff. Backfield Coach Lee Flent- 
roy said the suicide schedule is 
likely to send the team reeling 
to its lowest production peak in 
quality since the war. 

Two independent elevens and 
nine teams from four different 
conferences make up the opposi- 
tion. Conferences represented are 
the Midwest Coriference. South- 
west Conference. South Central 
Conference and the South East- 
ern Conference. 

Tennessee State, Paul Quin 
college arid Mississippi Indus- 
trial college are the neWcomers.

Brooklyn Has '500,000 Price On Newcombe 

NEW YORK— Before he had 
thrown a ball in a big-league 
game, and while Barney Shotton 
was saying that he was not only 
lazy, but also tmpermental, 
Branch Rickey hung a cool $500.- 
000 price tag on him. Don New- 
combe, the Brooklyn Dodger 
pitching ace tells, in the current 
issue of Sport Magazine, how it 
almost didn't happen at alL 

In the Spring of '47, the year 
they brought Jackie Robinson up, 
Don was sent back home after 
the training session to gain 
some weight. He had already 
had one year in the Brooklyn or- 
ganization with Nashua in the 
New England League, where he 
had won 14 and lost four. Don 
owed the club a few hundred 
dollars that he had borrowed 
from them and he went to see 
Branch Rickey to let him know 

that he was worrying about pay- 
ing it back. 

Before Newcombe got much of 
a chance to say anything, Rickey 
accused him of not wanting to 
go back to Nashua, and told Don 
he could pick up his release right 
then. Taken back. Don said he'd 
[do an>-thing Branch Rickey 
I wanted him to do. Rickey re- 
[ plied, "Go ahead." Don almost 
, went, too, but at the last mo- 
! ment he decided to make sure 
j that Branch had really under- 
stood what he was trying to say. 
When Rickey did realize that 
I Newcombe wasn't complaining, 
but merely trying to keep th 
; record straight, he sat down with 
I Eon and talked things over. They 
, had no trouble reaching an un- 
derstanding, and it was shortly 
1 thereafter, Sport reports, that 
Rickey put the whopping big 

price tag on Don Newcombe. mil- 
i lion-dollar Dodger who almost 
left the organization because he 
was trying to pay back a couple 
of hundred. 

Lightweights Fight 
For CaUf omia Title 

Training hard in Oakland, John L. Davis, aggressive 
Northern California lightweight star, announced that he 
will be fit and ready when he steps into the ring here at 
the Olympic Tuesday night, Aug. 29, against Carlos Cha- 
vez in their 12-round bout for the lightweight champion- 
ship of California. 

Enrique Bolanos held the title 
until last November, when he 
lost an unpopular decision to 
Maxie Docusen. Maxie shoved 
off for New Orleans after win- 
ning the crown, and stayed there 
for more than eight months. 
There's a Commission ruling 
that' state champions must de- 
fend their titles every six montlis 
if suitable contenders are avail- 

In the lightweight class, there 
are oodles of suitable contend- 
ers, and since Maxie was absent, 
the State Athletic Commission 
declared the title vacant. 

Certainly no one can criticize 
the right of either Chavez or 
John L. to fight for the state 
crown. Both have repeatedly 
proved their class, quality and 

When Chavez defeated Aragon 
last June, it was his fifth 
straight win this year; his most 
important victory prior to that, 
scored in February, was a nine- 
round TKO over Jess Flores of 
Stockton. He had also beaten 
Emil Barao, the Hay ward Ham- 

John L. Davis is perhaps the 
most underestimated lightweight 
on the Coast. Back in '48, he de- 
feated Art Aragon; then he lost 
deviisons to Aragon. Enrique Bo- 
lanos, Maxie Docusen, Bernard 
Docusen, and Tommy Campbell. 
But every one was a "tightfit"; 
every one could have gone to 
Davis, and there would have 
been no great l»-do about it. 

Moreover, Johf L. had Bolanos 

fighter, loves to get in close and 
whale away with both fists. 

Certainly the winner of the 
Chavez -Davis fight would be a 
worthy opponent for Ike Wil- 

Matchmaker Babe McCoy has 
announced that he has a brace 
of excellent preliminaries pre- 
ceding the main event. t

NEW YORK.— (CNS) — Fans,

the pasteboards for the third 
meeting of the two toughest 
featherweights in history, on 

The Sept. 6 duel, with Saddler 
asking 15 per cent and Pep hook- 
ing 45 per cent, is expected to 
jam Yankee Stadium and total 

a gross of better than $300,000. ' 
Rinf[side seats are going for $20 i

Way Out West 


Our train was held at a little 
town in northern California and 
stood besides a long freight 
train on another track. This is 
the fruit and vegetable gather- 
ing season and there were an 
assortment of men and boys, 
whites, Negroes, Mexicans sitting 
in the empty box cars as guests 
of the railroads. Tramps or ho- 
boes we used lo call them, but 
now they are classed as itinerant 

We used to ease up somewhat 
on the immigration law so thou- 
sands of them could come over 
to supply the great need for help 
but it was a big job to get them 
to return to their homes below 
the border and it was feared that 
they would become a relief bur- 
den as work began to get slack. 
We began then to call them 
tramps and undesirables who 
were apt to cause trouble. 
Like the South 

California is no different from 
the South in this respect. Some 
sections forbid Negroes from liv- 
ing anywheer near and visitors 
passing through were often the 
victims 6f humiliating treatment. 
but when the cotton needed 
chopping and with the coming 
of the cotton picking season. 
they were sought after and the 
more liberal towns were flooded 
with agents and those offering 
good times and wages in these 
places where they were consid- 
ered unwelcome, where while 
they were in demand, they were 
given the run of the town, so to 

Among these men in the box 
COTS was a Negro boy. a teen- 
ager sitting off to himself while 
he plunked owoy on his ukelele. 
I decided to speak to him. He 
was Tery polite and pleasant 
and told me his lUMne was in 
Laredo. '«3f down on the Texas 
border. 1 is is not far from 
Cipa Diaz n Old Mexico where 
we used t go on Sunday with 
other thou, mds to see fake bull 

The boy said he was headed 
for the big produce couittry 
around Fresno wheer he had 
heard there was big money. I 
asked if he attended school but 
he had graduated this spring 
and finding nothing in South 
Texas to do, came west. He 
addied that his mother did not 
know wheer he was and when 
he did write her it would be 
when he had some money to 
send for he believes she could 
recover from an illness if she 
ctMild get the right kind of doc- 
tm, ■ f • - 

Like too many kids, his home 
life wasn't much and his father 
amounted to less, having left 
when he found out he had "mar- 
ried a walking drug store" as he 
put it. This may or not l>e a 
sad story. This was not a "bad 
boy." He was just looking 
around for food, shelter and a 
better chance just as you have 

Have you not read numerous 
times of boys who left home ear-

ASP Protest 
Franco Group 
In H wood Bowl 

On .August 24! at the Holly- i 
wood Bowl, a group of 60 singers '■. 
and dancers from Madrid, called | 
Cora Y Danyas, made their ap- ! 
pearance under the leadership 
of Jose Iturbi. 

This groiip composed of emis- 
saries of Franco, is now rouring I 
the^Americas with the blessing I 
of Spain's oppressor. The app«^ar- i 
ances have led to hot demonst;-a- 
tions in Latin American coun- j 
tries. The visit of this "cultural 
group" has evidently been care- 
fully timed to coincide with the j 
current drive to float a loan in 
order to bolster Franco's totter- i 
ing regime and also to have j 
Fascist Spain admitted a mem- | 
ber of the United Nations. I 

Lovers of Democracy, people in 
all walks of life, ought to recog- ' 
niz^ these machinations for | 
what they are and protest 
against them in the strongest j 
possible terms, says the Arts, | 
Sciences and Professions Council. 
Write or telephone the Holly- 
wood Bowl Association and voice 
your indignation. Make . your 
protest count.

If you were born Uinder this 
sign, the sixth sign of the zo- 
diac, you are rather quiet and 
retiring in manner. You often 
fret about your health and try 
out various systems and ways of 
keeping fit even though you 
have no need of so doing. It is 
your nature to be seeking imper- 
fections in yourself, just the 
same as you do in others, and 
to set about applying corrective 

The Virgo individuals are not 
very emotional nof sentimental 
but are very discriminative and 
fastidious in the choice of a 
loved one. In their love life, 
they may be considered rather 
cold but the feelings are pure in 
nature, and among those born i 
in this sign are to be found 
inany who are averse to marri- 
age, preferring platonic love. 

Virgo people nearly always en- 
joy good health, but they fre- 
quently imagine themselves ill 
or about to become ill, so they 
keep their medicine cabinet well 
stocked in case of need.

USCF Investigating 
Discriminating Case 

Latest development in the na- 
tional fight led by Cosmo 
against Jim Crow in southern 
chess is a definitive statement 
against discrimination in an air 
lail letter to this columnist 
rom Paul G. Giers, president of 
?hc United States Chess Federa- 
tion. Giers wrote: 

**I was grecrtly surprised to 
hear that a colored player ap- 
parently was barred from the re- 
cent Southern Chess Association. 
Never before, to my knowledge, 
has there been discrimination 
against ony chess player becouse 
of roce, creed or color. 

"I am now endeavoring to as- 
certain the complete facts in 
this matter. When the facts have 
been obtained, our Federation 
will take whatever action is in 
order. . . . 

No Discriminotioa 

"Of course there can be, and 
must be, no discrimination in 
chess. Such practice would be 
wholly inconsistent with the 
spirit of our game, which has 
always been synonymous with 
equality and good sportsman- 
ship. This spirit of equality has 
always prevailed in all tourna-- 
ments and activities of the 
USCF, and we will exert our in- 
fluence to prevent discrimination 
of any sort." 

The SCA is not affiliated with 
the USCF, which consequently 
had no jurisdiction over the Jim 
Crow tourney. But the USCF will

Say You Saw H in The EAGLE 

1950 STYLE 

Every evening after dark the Street Lighting Patrol of 
your City-Owned Department of Water and Power 
swings into action. Driving trucks equipped with special 
hydraulic-lift platforms, these two-man crews fan out 
into all sections of Los Angeles, checking street lamps 
and bulbs. These modern lamplighters work seven 
nights a week, all year around, helping to brighten your 
city and make streets safer to drive on. LaSt year your 
Department's Street Lighting Patrol made more than 
100,000 replacements of street lamps. 

Good lighting in your city also helps prevent crime. 
Police records indicate that many crimes of the more 
common type occur less often in well-lighted areas 
than in poorly lighted streets. 

Your lamplighters— 1950 style— are doing an impor- 
tant job for you and your city. They arc part of your 
Department's huge family of employees whose sole aim 
is to provide Los Angeles with the best possible elec- 
trical service, 'round the clock and 
throughoiit the year.

Life in a fabulously wealthy 
New York family is depicted by 
the pleasantly acid pen of the 
younger of two sisters who were 
brought up in a series of rather 
weird educational experiments 
extending all over the world, de- 
pending on the moods of a de- 
lightfully changeable mother. 
The girls were surrounded by an 
odd assortment of attendants, in- 
cluding a French nurse, a Ger- 
man governess, a Japanese but- 
ler named Joe. and numerous 
maids, all size 16 ( to fit avail- 
able uniforms). Luckily the fa- 
ther was as level-headed as he 
was patient, and he intervened 
whenever things became too hec- 
tic. The famous authSr F. Scott 
Fitzgerald once descril>ed the 
very rich as being' different from 
the rest of us; but this family 
you will find warm and human 
in every respect.

SUBURBS, by C. B. Palmer. 
The author pokes mild fun at 
his ups and downs as a typical 
suburbanite, his attempts at be- 
ing handy around the house, his 
annual struggle with the gar- 
den, the Saturday shopping rou- 
tine, and all the other every- 
day adventures that are familiar 
to most of us. A nice light touch 
is preserved throughout.

Dies; Military 
Services, Portland 

The community of EKiarte

leading citizens, Chester Ingersol 

Mr. Dixon resided at 1551 E. 
Central avenue. He was a -vet- 
eran of three wars, Spanish 
American, World War. I, and 
World War II. He first saw serv- 
ice as an apprentice seaman by 
enlisting in 1899. He was dis- 
charged in San Francisco in 1904 
and reinlisted in 1908. He served 
from that time until 1924. rising

In 1925 Chief Dixon was trans- 
ferred to thi Naval Torpedo Sta- 
tion, Keyport, Washington. Here 
he conducted classes in deepsea 
diving in conjunction with his 
torpedo work. When war was 
declared in 1941, he was recalled

tired from active service. 

He leaves his wife, Clifford F. 
Dixon; and two sisters. Theresa 
Dixon Irving and Mable C.

World Council of 
Churches Calls for 
Settlement in Kpf«a 

A statemenl supporting the call 
of the World Council of Churches 
for "a just settlement by nego- 
tiation and conciliation" of the 
hostilities in Korea was issued 
4his week over the signatures 
of 496 churchmen, representing 
27 denominations. 

The statement originating with 
THE WITNESS, national weekly 
of the Episcopal Church, invited 
others to endorse it ,ahd calls 
for the seating of the representa- 
tive of the Chinese Peoples Re- 
public in the United Natons, as 
proposed by Premier Nehru, and 
"other^steps necessary to restore 
the United Nations as an effec- 
tive agency of mediation." 

The moral atmosphere in our 
land today is dangerously pessi- 
mistic and war-like, continues 
the statement. A ' positive effort 
by the American people on be- 
half of reconciliation among the 
nations is needed to create a 
climate which will constrain our 
government to give fuller sup- 
port to attempts at peaceful 
settlement in Korea. < 

The United Nations is our great 
modern act of faith that con- 
flicts like that in Korea can be 
settled by means other than war. 
If we do not will the means, we 
do not will the end. As men and 
women of the church, we pledge 
our active support to the World 
Council's call for negotiation 
through the United Nations to 
bring peace to Korea .

Baha'i World Faith 

"World Religion" is the sub- 
ject of the lecture which Mr. 
Willard P. Hatch will deliver at 
the public meeting of Baha'i 
World Faith to be held at their 
Los Angeles headquarters. 331 
South New Hampshire A/enue. 
on Sunday afternoon, August 27, 
at 3:30 o'clock. 

The Baha'i Faith is a world re- 
ligion. Its teachings define the 
nature of world order. Its spiri- 
tual power is so great that al- 
ready, within a century, it has 
spread to ninety countries. World 
unity, as expressed in the Baha'i 
teachings, is first of all a reun- 
ion of man with God; then a 
spiritual unity among men; and 
by that spiritual unity the ne- 
cessary institutions of world or- 
der are evolved. 

'Christ Jesus' Sunday 
Christian Science Topic 

"Christ Jesus" will be the Sun- 
day Bible Lesson subject in all 
branches of The Mother Church, 
The First Church of Christ, Scien- 
tist, in Boston. The Golden Text 
is from Jeremiah: "Behold, the 
days come, saith the Lord, that 1 
will raise unto David a righteous 
Branch, and a King shall reign and 
prosper, and shall execute judgment 
and justice in the earth. . . . And 
this is his name whereby he shall 
be called, THE LORD OUR 

Luke's Gospel relates that fol- 
lowing the resurrection, as two of 
the disciples walked to Emmaus, 
"Jesus himsblf drew near, and went 
with them. But their eyes were 
holden that they should not know 
him. . . . And beginning at Moses 
and all the prophets, he expounded 
unto them in all the scriptures the 
things concerning himself." 

Mary Baker Eddy writes in "Sci- 
ence and Health with Key to the 
Scriptures:" "In the walk to Em- 
maus, Jesus was known to his 
friends by the words, which made 
their hearts burn within them, and 
by the breaking of bread. The di- 
vine Spirit, whi»h Identified Jesus 
thus centuries ago, has spoken 
through the Inspired Word and will 
speak through it in every age and 
clime. It is revealed to the recep- 
tive heart, and is again seen cast- 
ing out evil and healing the bick."

1478 W. 37th St., who has con- 
tributed poetry and articles of 
social criticism to various period- 
icals published in the United 
States.^ Canada, Argentina and 
England has been commissioned 
by the "Marches De France," an 
international literary journal 
which features the regional 
writings of the various nations, 
to contribute to several forth- 
coming issues. 

Rev. Owens has been askd to 
contribute some of his poetry 
and also some of his black and 
white ink line illustrations. The 

editor may translate some of 
his work into the French. The 
work of Rev. Owens will be fea- 
tured in Vol. No. 10, the Autumn 
number, and in Vol. No. 11, the 
Winter number. The journal 
"Marches De France" is publish- 
ed in Belgium. The editor is 
Monsieur Gaston-Henrv AuFrere. 

"You have the genuine in- 
spiration," wrote Monsieur Au- 
Frere. "A wide and human in- 
spiration-^as wide as the nature 
of which you sing. Your sweep 
of the vast wild and the spaces 
portray graphic and vivid pic- 
tures of depth and beauty. This 
is true poetry."
