place on public carriers like street

They are caused by insulting re

members of another group. Natur

followups, there are often outbursts
of physical violence.

1 a new lease on life despite the ef

to eliminate the organization, are

daily here in Washington.

are told that their jobs are a part
of national defense and as such,
they should not tell the type Of
work they are doing, nor where they

Mrs. Blanche Holmes, mother of Pvt
John Bordenave, has pleaded with
army officers and officials of the
federal government to investigate
the case. She went into the case
after her son wrote her July 23, de
claring that he was innocent and
had been arrested only after a state
ment from one of the others involv
ed him. He alleges that on tha
night of the crime is said to have
occurred he was on guard duty.
“I’ve been in jail 21 days,” Bord
enave wrote. "They put me in on
the 25th day of May, this case hap
pened on the 9th day of May and il
was not reported until the 15th of
May. When they put you in jail
here they don’t want you to Say
anything whether you are right or
wrong. You know it is here, they
make you say you did if you did
not, the camp officers did not come
to see me or whether I was right or
wrong,” he declared.
He swore to his mother that he
did not know anything about the
case, stating that he always steered
clear of “that kind of trouble.' Ex
plaining the dangers of relations be
tween Negro soldiers and “these
kind of women,” he pointed out
that “‘they have white girls out
here selling themselves, you know
there was a colored soldier shot
here about the same case and there
was nothing done about it.”
When arrested the soldiers de
clared that they were innocent of
the charges, hut they were tortured
until they signed written confessions
Bordenave told his mother when she
spoke with him in court Monday.
He said that for three weeks they
were kept in straight jackets, but
when they failed to confess then
the torturing followed.
Three lawyers of Alexandria were
appointed to the defense of the trio.
They are Ward T. Jones, John R.
Hunter Jr., and Isaac Wahlder.
Hunter, who is defending Bord- j
enave, wrote Mrs. Holmes on July
10 to the effect:
“It is extremely distasteful, to Sd.y
the least, for me to have to defend
Bordenave, or any other Negro,
charged with raping a white girl,
and I did my best to try to get out
of defending Bordenave, but the
court would not permit me to with
“If there is any way for you to
raise any money and engage some

with me and possibly might help
some. I don’t want to create the
impression that I will not defend
Bordenave to the best of my ability,
for that I will do. but if there is any
way possible for me to get out, I am
going to do it.”
ODDS AGAINST THEM
Hunter went on to state, “It is not
my ^ intention to frighten you, but
this crime is punishable by death,
and the way the case stands at this
time, it is my opinion that the odds
are great against Bordenave and
