| Lynching Decreases—
The Department of Records anti^
Research at Tuskegee issues the
“Only three lynchings occurred
in the United States during the
Calendar year 1939. All of the
lynchings took place in the South.
Two in Florida and one in Misaiss
ippi, Two were Colored men and
I one was a white man.”
“The total of three for 1939 com
pares with six in 1938, eight in
1937 and the same in 1936, and 20
in 1936. Officers of the law pre
vented lynching in 18 instances, all
occurred in the South, saving a to
tal of 26 human lives—20 Negroes
i and 6 whites.
This statement is ve*y signific
ant because the Anti-Lynch Bill is
to be brought before Congress a
gain this week. All loyal Americ
an citizens rejoice to see this de
cline in mob violence and regret
that even three were lynched. It
appears that a greater respect for
“due process of law” is being de
veloped. But as a safeguard a
gainst possibly new “lynch waves”
we feel that a Federal Anti-Lynch
Law is advisable. Some Southern
Congressmen have already declar-1
ed their intention to support a fili
buster against the bill, so we in
the west, east and north will do
well to join our Southern breth
ern in protesting this filibuster and
urging our representatives to sup
port the bill.
