Dept, of Commerce Official Writes a Personal Letter to Michi. gan’s Parole Commissioner W. Alfred Debo Asking Clemency for Clifford C. Mitchell Washington, D. C., May 3rd— Writing a personal letter to Parole Commissioner W. Alfred Debo, Lans ing, Michigan, James A. Jackson -says: “This communication requesting favorable consideration of the case of Clifford C. Mitchell is an express ion of a virtually nation-wide inter, est in the accomplishments of that man within the past few years. His research work and journalistic con tributions, conducted under handicap ped circumstances, has arrested the attention of a number of people to whom he is totally unknown except through his work. That he has been able to achieve this attention is ho mean accomplishment; and to' have been perfectly candid and honest as £o his personal situation while doing j it, is a very obvious indication of | worthy purpose. “In order that you may appreciate my interest in the matter, perhaps it would be well that I provide some explanation as to myself. I am a one time resident of the city of Detroit and my sons were born there. I am also one of the older Negro newspa per men of the country, having en gaged in such work at a time when there was very little opportunity for a Negro in that field; remuneration and chances of employment were both very limtied. However, the sit uation with reference to Negro journ alism has greatly improved su»ee those days. It is evident from Mr. Mitchell’s pge that he too was affect ed by the circumstances of those pio neer days of the Colored Correspond ent. “For the past six years I have been a Business Specialist in charge of a section of the Bureau of Foreign and Domestic Commerce havirtg to do with the small business units of the country with a special interest in the Negro commercial elements. Depart ment regulations forbid personal cor respondence on Government letter heads, therefore this is a personal communication. It was because of my position that I came to know Mr. Mitchell’s work since one of the features of my office work is the reviewing of more than a hundred Negro publications each week. Then, too, he has from time to time written to me for in. formation which my office makes a. vailable to the public. Being myself, a reasonable well known writer, with a public given nickname of “Bill board” Jackson; and being interested in one of the largest Negro owned press services, it was but natural that I should become interested in this seeming newcomer into promin ence in the field. “Without doubt, Mr. Mitchell has become one of the outstanding feat ures of Negro journalism, nor has his usefulness been confined to that field. A large number of the foremost pub lishing houses of the country have ac corded his work recognition. The consistency with w'hich I am obliged to study the Negro press has kept me thoroughly informed as to the merit and the distribution of his work; and my own experiences enable me to recognize th merit of his several columns. I have no doubt of his abil ity to find a profitable place for him self in his chosen field; and I am sat isfied that if Mr. Mitchell is released, that he has built up such sustaining contacts as to make it .indeed diffic ult to stray from the highest stand ards of business and society. The assurance of a competency earned with his facile pen and his love for detailed research, removes temptation to steal or beg from being future pos sibilities with him. To continue Mr. Mitchell longer in prison, is in my opinion, wasting a useful service to humanity and with-holding from Journalism a capable mind that, if free, would acquit itself creditably.” (Signed) JAMES A. JACKSON. DOINGS AMONG THE AMATEURS The first two games in our league, is history now. A record that we need not be ashamed of. I now relate some of those records. 1. A new deal as to our opening grounds were in evidence. Heretofore it has been Muny beach or Riverview. This time on one of the city's three best diamonds, AkSarBen field with an admission charge of 25c we gave the Muny association a record crowd which meant many shekels in the much used treasury. 2. A record was set as to our de portment, both among the players and especially among the fans, there was so much interest as to the general strength of each team, so much loyal ty and self-respect shown that we are proud to say that w^ were 100% better thafi heretofore. When we con sider that we have been almost isolat ed from residence sections for several years. How do pople get what they want? By asking for it!

Boosters with their old time team strength again gave action, defeating Holmes Tailors 13-6. The Tailors started out to cut a frock for the Boosters. In the very first inning getting four runs off of Lowe. In fact they made it so hot for Johnnie that Richie had to send him to first base until things cooled off. The Bosters came.back in their half strong to almost wreck the Tailors. It was experience and team work vs. inexperience and new men. Give C. C. a little time and he will be there. Both j teams deserve high praise. Harry Trustin I Commissioner Harry Trustin found time to be with us on this occasion which meant so much to the effic iency of our hustling president. In the opening just before the second , game. Mr. Trustin pitched the first 1 ball to a youngster whom I did not know, perhaps his son. The little fel- J low hit too short but was safe at first on an error. And the Globe Trotters and Rex were off. What A Game Kirksey a little unsettled in the first allowed 3 runs but settled dowrn * after that and pitched shut out ball while “Big Red” was cool and almost invincible. The Trotters began to trot in the 3rd getting 3 and no more until that memorable nineth when Wake field and Gray walked Parker, doubl ed to left center putting the Trotters two ahead. But up pops the devil in the Cudahy’s, halt. Wilson hit to Wakefield. Wilson safe, an error on Freddie, Manley tripled to deep center, Clements walks. Love hit through 2nd, Manley scores, Fry hit to Woodruf, Clements takes 3rd when Woodruf drop easy out. Three on one out. Score tied, last half ninth, grandstand gone mad. Trotters in field pull in for squeeze play. Arvm drops Texas leaguer over second. Boy! boy! boy! It’s over, Rex 6; Trotters 5. So long. —C A S Book IReview “A. B. C.’s OF GREAT NEGROES” by Charles C. Dawstn (Dawson Publishers, 403 East 45th Street, For some time I have been attract ed by the drawings of Charles C. Daw son, in the Bronzeman magazines, the first magazine to use one of my short stories, about a year and a half ago, and qnite naturally I felt honored in receiving an autographed copy of the illustrator’s first book, the A. B. C’s. of Great Negroes. In this little book Dawson has us ed his original hand-made linoleum engravings of a prominent Negro for every letter of the alphabet and in cludes a short (in my opinion—en tirely too short) biography of each character. The book being printed from linoleum cuts is of necessity very limited, probably only a few thousand being printed in this first edition. The twenty-six Negroes whom Daw son has chosen for subjects are: Rob ert S, Abbott; Mary McLeod Bethune; George W. Carver; Frederick Doug las; Eatevanico; Meta Warrick Ful ler; Albert B. George; Roland Hayes; Ikhnaton; James Weldon Johnson; Ross Drug Store Now Located At 2122 N. 24th St. ' We. 2770 Khufu; Toussaint L’Ouverture; Rob. ert R.
