lovely with full gathered should

“Negroes and
Suspects”
by AL RICHMOND
—(for CNS)—
They might nave been lynched—
They were Negroes. They we^e
Tough Guys.’’
So, conviction-crazy cops weav
ed the rope. Hysterical white
newspapers, seeking sensation,
fashioned the rope in the hang
man's noose of a lynch mob.
This vtfas the ghastly story
which came to light as the climax
to one of the weirdest dramas in!
the annals of California crime.
It was uncovered when Ernest
Stripliii, 29 year old white prison
Folsom convict, confessed to the
so-called “lover’s lane1’ murders of
Dorothy Woofter, 19, and Nathan
Chinchiolo, 23, both white, at
Stockton last April.
Prior to the confession, obtained
through a tip from another wniie
prisoner, newspaper and v>|»-.e
authorities had ‘‘convicted” 'wo
Negroes, Henry Jones, 38 and De
wey Clark, 29, both of whom were
indicted for the horrible crime.
The lengths to which the white
newspapers and police authorities
went to find the two men guilty
without a trial are recorded in
the columns of The San Francisco
Chronicle which led the rest of the
newspaper pack in howling for
their blood.
The men were arrested on May
4, a week after the murder, by
Detective Sergeant Rex Parker of
Stockton. Immediately after the
arrest, even before any semblance
of an investigation was made, Ser
geant Parker announced to th©
press:
“We are confident these men are
the murderers. We are definite
ly charging them with the mur
der ’’
At that time, the only “clue”
was the word of a white Tracy ga
rage owner. Walter R. Guyon, that
as the Chronicle reported it, “two

Negroes driving a 1938 Plymouth'
Sedan came to his garage between
12:30 and 1 a m. Monday, purch
ased eight gallons of gasoline and
asked Guyon to repair a broken
tall light.”?
This was enough to "convince”
the police and the press that the
murder was committed by Negro
es.
On Monday, May 6, The Chron
icle story began with the following
words: "Two Negro ex-convicts,
both ‘two-time losers and ‘tottg-h
guys,’ this morning were charged
with the brutal sex murder.’’
They were Negroes, they were
‘‘twV) time losers”—they had two
strikes against them and the press
was ready to credit them with a
third. The Chronicle story con
tinues:
“And all day long a feeling of
tenseness spread throughout this
sunny oity. Jailors at the anti
quated county jail, where the two
are prisoners, reported a) steady
flow of telephone calls, each ask
ing the same anonymous question:
“Have they confessed yet?”
io eacn query me answer was
in the negative, as police deputy
sheriffs, the district attorney’s
office and other authorities contin
ued and unrelenting investigation
into the activities of the pair. And
as each new clue was run down,
each fact brought down, these au
thorities said they were increas
ingly convinced they were holding
the right men in jail.”
These ‘‘clues”, these “facts’’ and
the indreasing conviction, in the
light of later revelations, all grew
out of the determination to hang
the two men, with nothing more to
start on than that they were Ne
groes and ‘‘tough Guys.”
The Chronicle went even furth
e . Over a special feature story
about the “hero” of the case, De
tective Sergeant Parker, it had
the headline: “SKILLFUL SLEU
THING—Ace Detective Cracks
Case.’’
This headline was a definite as
sumption of the men’s guilt, and ii
now develops that ‘‘skilful sleuth
ing” is the ability to pin a murder
on innocent people.
Sergeant Parker, tasting of the
sweet wine of flattery (probably
seeing promotion or a bonus in
the offing, really swelled out his
chest, and with a broggcdocio pec
uliar to cops, said:
“I'm sure these are the men we
want and, now, the ONLY concern
of myself and other officials is to
strengthen the case against the
Negroes.”
The above story appeared on
May 6. From then on news on
the case tapered off as police were
unable to find any evidence direct
ly placing the two men at the scene
of the murder.
