THE DRUNKEN DRIVING
“Newspapirs mold public
opinion faster than any other;
agency and should be enii ted
in the campaign to end drunk
en driving,” says W. A. (lab
ridson. Honolulu police chief,
in a paper read at the recent
Nah.onal Safety Council.
It is reliably estimated that j
drunken driving ha at least
doubled since the repeal of pro
hibition. Today 1.1 is one of the
principal causes of motor ac !
ddents. Surveys carried on ini
various states indicate that h*j
quor is a factor iin 10 to 20 per
cent of all accidents involving
a fatality or a major injury.!
In tfne words' of the Chief of.
the CaJiforum State Highway
Control, the drunken diving
evil “continues to grow una,
is playing too gnat, a part in
the present (mounting death
.The “alcohol mixed with gaJ
dine” problem must be attack
ed from a number of angles.
In many communities police
and prosecuting authorities
are more or les> indifferent to
it and are prone to let a lit-1
tie Cpull” reduce a -canons,
drunken driving charge. While'
proven scientific methods for
establishing whether or not a
person is legally intoxicated
are well known, tiny are not
widely adopted, iW>Uh tit),* re

deuce to justify a conviction.
Worst of all, perhaps, a Large
part of the public condones
drunken driving by refining
to demand rigorous and impar
trial laws and methods to de
tect and punish it.
Alcohol at the wheel kills
thousands of Americans each

NEGRO HISTORY WEEK
An unusually fine spirit of
co-operation has been shown
by the state and national ed
ucational magazines in plac
ing the Negro History Week
observance among tlhc impor
tant concern^ of the school
year. The notice taken of the
celebration by the educational
monthlies of t$ie South has
been especially helpful. The re
suit therefore, is that the pro
gressive teachers of both races
in the North and South where
ever the Negro population is
considerable, have become act
ive in making preparation to
ward this end.
Much interest is been shown
in Pennsylvania, even in parts
where the Negro population is
negligible. Philadelphia is ar
oused. New Jersey schools are
just as active at various cen
ters as thos« across the line.
The New Brunswick, N. J.,
schools are to work out in con
nection with Negro Ilistory
week, a project in the contri
bution of the Negro race to
American cultural life.
In New York City certain
principals would like not only
to sponsor t-he celebration but
would introduce the system
atic tudy of the Negro. This
has actually been done in sev-1
eral cities in Ohio and certain
schools of Indiana and Illinois
arc working toward the some
end. The board of education of
(JU-cago in requesting that all
hooks Soaring upon the Negro
he submitted for consideration
in those schools.
Farther west the needs ex
j)i\iuS 'd show y widening inter
est in the effort. Mrs. Helen
Walker i.n the w hite schools in
Kirksville, Mo., wants material
ial to be used in teaching a
un'd ou Negro literature in her
Mngli1 h. classes. Miss Lou Kilt
Miles of the Central High at
St. Paul, MHnn., asks for data
that tlhe International Rela
tions Club of the institution
may present to var.uus groups
a. Hcmbly programs on the Ne
gro’s contribution to American
life. Mrs. Edna Breazle of the
Roosevelt High School in Seat
tle, Wu^n., wants all available
information on the background
and present status of the Ne
gro to be used ,Jn her literature
clahaes. In ail) these cases the
tea^vrs not only eoueede the
Negro a place in history but nn
dertake to ,ju tify i( to their
Mr. W. T. Raster, a special
ist 'ill education in the State
Department of Rducation of
California, writes from Los An
gelcs for sugge ted programs,
lie* is planning with the aid of
school officials, to have pro
grams throughout the sia.te.
He says that Negro History
Week has never been given ap
preciable degree of eonsidera-!
tion on the coast. He reports,!
(however, that there bus been
developed in the last four or
five years, a racial conscious
ness witjh a racial appreciation
which if nurtured and inspir
ed will accomplish much in ra
cial progress. He believes more
over, tha,f one of the method?
by which this may be accom
plished is “ through types of
programs which are usually
earned out during NegrolHis
tory Week." He is, therefore,
arranging programs bearing
upon various aspects of Negro
life and history.
In tin' Sout^. itself, evidence
of the effect of the movement
has been shown as usual by the
oncers in the state depart
ments of education especially
concerned with the work am
ong the Negroes. In this class
belong the very active officials
in Virginia, North Carolina,
Georgia, Alabajma, Ixmid!anas
and Oklhomak Miss Willis C.
Paine of Jonesyille, La., re
ports that she has succeeded in
intieresting the white schools in
making a study of Negro lead j
ers, activities and contribu
tions during the week.

ments in favor of the bill and the
present strategy. Senator Norris
sated that a filibuster could be>
broken by a strict and technical en
forcement of the rules. It was
pointed out to him that an anti
lynching bill removing the threat
of mob terrorism was a proper ad
vance step for the social legisla
tion for which he has morked for
many years. The Senator was non

he will not permit himself to be the
spearhead of an attack on the bill
Southern Dailies A'd Bui
One of the most -encouraging as
pects of the fight thus far has been
the steadfast support of many
leading daily newspapers in the
South. In fact, the southern daily
papers have fought the filibuster
much harder than the northern pa
pers. Chief northern paper to turn
t&'l and run was the New York
Daily News which declan d editor
ially in plain language m support
of the bill several months ago, but,
after only thrte days of filibuster
ing, announced that it had been
convinced by the southerners that
the b'll was no good and thereupon
changed its opinion. On the other
hand, such southern dailies as the

"••tch, the Greensboro (N. C.)
t-aily News, the New Orleans

ed the filibuster in no uncertain
terms and stated that, the southern
senators did not represent the sen

from these papers will be introduc

A conference of leading sup
porters of the bill last night re

been pursued for the past two
weeks, that is, to keep silent and

The southerners would like no
thing tette r than to get the. Sen- '

on the race question so that the.
issue ol’ the anti-lynchhng bill
could be pushed in the background.
The supporters have no intention
of b'-ing drawn into such s:de ar
gument and at the right time will
mak the.'r speeches on the bill and
