Fight Union of
Negro and White
Little Rock, Ark., Feb., 5—
Organized 18 months ago to
safeguard tenants' rights under
the now defunct AAA, the
Southern Tenant Farmer’s Un
ion is causing grave concern
to white planters throughout
thus state because for the first
time they are seeing poor white
and Negro sharecroppers unit
ed to improve their economic
So serious is the concern of
rich planters that evictions,
beatings, summary trials and
other repressive measures are
used against th's union. It has
evoked an interest which prev
ious governmental investiga
tions on the Sharecroppers'i
plight failed to arouse. liand
owncrs, realizing its potential j
strength, envision it as an
agency wfhieh may cause “up-j
risings” and “rueial strife.”
Organizers of the union have
patiently fostered the doctrine
that a common battle must be
waged by white and Negro
labor to improve the economic
status of both and that both arc
in the same fnancial boat.
Members arc told to forget
their prejudice and work to
gether in harmony. And fori
the first time this policy is be-!
ing felt on a large scale in,
Dixie, although previously
there, have been soluted in-,
stances of unions of skilled,
trades in urban centers. '
In three counties where the
union is strongest with a mem-,
bership of fi,0(X) divided almost
equally between the races, both
groups arc working together inj
extreme friendship in their
common fight aguinst what
1hey consider unfair practices
by landowners. This organiza-,
tion was allowed to get a foot
hold because planters took the
position at first that it was one
of those fly-by-11'ght moves
that wouldn’t last. Now, how
ever, they break up meetings
and frankly declare they wilI
not have union members on
in uru»-r 10 ruruuui me union,
a WackJ'st has hoeu prepared
and issued secretly to planters.
Union membership is sufficient
ground for eviction and and
tenants evicted for that cause
find' it almost impossible to get
placed at another.
A wholesale eviction which
took place recently near Earle
has caused union officials to
appeal to Washington for a
probe and Gov. Fulrell has al
ready sent state investigators
to the scene. The trouble was
caused by the wholesale evic
tion of almost UX) persons,
half of them women and child
ren, from the 540 acre farm
of C. IT. Dibble. The tenants
were driven out by deputy
sheriffs mid left on a snowy
road with their possessions pil
ed beskk* them. The union got
five tents, aided the women in
getting to homes of friends in a
nearby town and established an
eviction camp still maintained
by the men.
At a meeting near Earle held
later, deputies drove both the
Negro and white audience away
and ran a Nashville socialist
scheduled to speak there out of
town. Two Negroes were shot
and slightly wounded. Pour
others were sentenced by a
justice of the peace to one year
terms for rioting and another
wias held to the grand jury
charged with assault with in*
tent to kill.
When Dibble was questioned
as to the eviction and his atti
tude toward the union, he gave
an answer typical of the Dixie
planter. “A Negro is just like
a saddle horse," he said. “It’s
only good business to take care
of him, but he’s a dependent,

Evicted' tenants declared they
were ready to stand by the un

much of the fact that whites
arc working with and sticking

meetings are held-in lonely cab

perfected and is growing

attempts to break it up which
seem actually to foster its
growth. It has set the entire

Washington, Feb. 6 (ANP)—Dr.
Eugene H. Dibble is to be the new
manager of the United States Vet
erans’ Facility located at Tuske
gee, Alabama, officials of the Vet
erans Administration announced
here Thursday. The 43-year-old
physician succeeds the veteran Col.
Joseph H. Ward, who has been
dismissed from the service under
a cloud this week, after heading
the hospital since July 1924. Dr.
Dibble is at present the medical
director of the John A. Andrew
Memorial hospital, located at Tusk
egee Institute, a position which he
has held since 1924. He at one
time served at the VeteranS’ hospi
tal as chief of the surgical section.
Dr. Dibble has built up an en
viable reputation as a hospital ex
ecutive at Tuskegee. To him is
given the credit for the develop
ment of the annual John A. An
drew clinic which has grown to be
one of the most important medic
al organizations in the country.
Physicians from every section of
the country make pilgrimages to
Tuskegee each spring to attend
the demonstrations of the clinical
association of which he is the sec
retary-treasurer. Dr. Dibble is
married, his wife being the for
mer Helen Taylor, daughter of Dr.
R. R. Taylor, for many years, vice
principal of Tuskegee Instiute.
They have four children.
The new hospital manager is a
graduate of Atlanta universiy, of
the Class of 1916, and of the How
ard Medical School, 1919. He came
to Washington Monday at the in
vitation of General Hines, Veter
ans’ Administrator and was of
fered the post. In the city at the
same time on orders from the bur
eau, was Colonel Ward, deposed
chieftain, as well as the chief
guard and the chief dietician of the
Institution, both of whom were
dismissed on charges of malfeas
ance, as were four other subordi
Whatever fears which might
have existed that the cloud creat
ed by the dismissal of the eight
in a change of race insofar as the
leadership of the institution was
concerned, were allayed by Dr.
Dibble’s pronjpt appointment. It
is understood that Veterans’ Ad
ministration Officials had assur
ed Dr. R. R. Moton and President
F. D Patterson of Tuskegee Insti
tute, that the personel would re

post February 1st.
Fingerprints of different people,
as we know, are uever the same.
Hut It Is possible for a crook to
Imitate a genuine fingerprint so
that the suspicion of the police can
be diverted, says I'earsou's Weekly.
How this can be done has been
shown by Dr. Harold ('iinimlns of
the Tulaue university of medicine,
Chicago. Taking an original gen
uine fingerprint, he had It engraved,
and made a three dimensional nega
tive lu wax. Then ho took a cast
In gelatin from the negative and
stuck the gelntin on a dummy finger, j
Twelve of the 32 prints he made ‘
with the dummy Unger were de
dared by fingerprint experts to be
genuine. Though tills proportion Is
not very grout, the United States
authorities believe it is snlfident to
allow criminals many opportunities
to put the police on false trails.
