Angelo Herndon to
Speak Here July 15th
Complete in all its horrible de
tails ,a twelve-foot replica of the
cage used by chain-gang prison
ers will arrive here on Monday,
July 15th. The cage, built on a
truck, is being taken on a coast
to-eoast tour by Angelo Herndon,
22 year-old Negro whose sentence
of 18 to 20 years on the Georgia
chain-gang the United States
Supreme Court recently upheld.
Herndon, for whom a stay of
eecution has been secured until
the fall, when the attorneys of
the International Labor Defense
will press for a re-hearing, before
the highest court, will speak in
Omaha, Monday night at 8
o’clock.’ A permit is being re
quested from the City Commis
sioners for the use of Grant
Street, just west of 24th, for the
meeting, between 7:30 and 10:00
o’clock, p. m. If request is refused,
will hold meeting at 24th, and
Blondo Streets.
The chain-gang display will be
shown at the meeting. In case of
rain the meeting will be held at
the Workers Center, 2404 Parker
Street, at 8 o’clock Monday even
The chain-gang cage, which is
12 feet long, seven feet wide and
seven feet high, is two-thirds the
actual size of the cages in which
Georgia prisoners spend their
nights. It was built under the
supervsiion of John L. Spivak,
whose exposure of Georgia chain
gangs rocked the country a few
years ago.
The cage resembles a huge cir
cus wagon. It is enclosed by
latticed iron bars. There are
three-decker tiers of bunks cov
ered with thin mattresses of bur
lap stuffed with straw.
To illustrate the horrors of the
chain-gang volunteers will don
the striped uniforms of convicts
and take the part of prisoners. |
In addition to the cage, there
will be on display models of the
instruments of torture commonly
used on the Georgia chain-gang
There will be “stocks,’’ in which
the prisoner lies three inches
from the ground, his whole weight
suspended from his wrists and
Herndon, who faces these tor
tures if he goes fO the chain-gang,
was convicted in Atlanta in 1933,
of “inciting to insurrection.’’ The
statute on which he was indicted
is based on a law of pre-Civil War
days, designed to crush slave up
risings. The state asked the death
penalty but the jury recommend
ed 18 to 20 years on the chain
Ht<rndon’s attorneys, employed
by the International Labor Defen
se, then appealed to the United
States Supreme Court, which re
fused by a six to threee decision
to reverse sentence, on the basis
of a technicality. A stay of exe
cution was obtained, and a re
hearing will be pressed. Mean
while Herndon is out on bond of
$15,000 cash raised by popular
subscription. A drive is now be
ing made to gain two million sig
natures to a petition to Governor
Eugene Talmadge of Georgia,
asking Herndon’s freedom and
asking also the repeal of the
‘slave insurrection’’ law.

Dancing, smoking and drinking

cn for all members of the Omaha po
lice department while they are in uni

nounced Monday night
A number of complaints have been
received recently that certain mem
bers of the force have thus disported
themselves while off duty in uniform,
' the chief stated in his order to all
commanding officers.
He called attention to rules in the
police manual which go so far as to
say that members of the force, while
in uniform, may not enter any place
(except in the immediate perform -
mance of duty) where liquor is sold
or furnished.
He concludes with the ultimatum:
“In connection herewith I wish you
to inform the members of the depart
ment under your command that no
uniformed member of the department
will be permitted to smoke, either
coming to or going from duty, while
in uniform, neither will drinking of
any kind of intoxicating liquor, in
