And, If the last Saturday night
opening of his USO can be used as
a guage, he’s going to win.
The ‘Cat’ recently opened a res
taurant at 5212 South 25th street,
and closed off an old saloon in the
basement. And that was the start
for his USO.
‘‘Negro sailors have been banned
from South Omaha because they
didn’t have any place to go," this
veteran of the last war explained.
“Many Negro soldiers have been
forced to roam the streets, so 1
went into a huddle with the missus
—she’s still boss—and we came up
with the idea of a USO. Out went
the old basement fixtures and in
went a dance floor.
“Clyde Dials, secretary of the
Community Effort Club, deserves
most of the credit because he car
ried out the plans. We don’t have
room for everyone so will enter
tain Negroes from different bases |

COMMITTEE ON UNAMERICAN
1. “One of the first acts of the New House of
Representatives in Washington was to give perman
ent basis to the Committee to Investigate Un-Amer
ican Activities... .It is to be hopped that a new
chapter will now begin. Under Hies_it was one
of the rankest traversties on a laudable purpose
ever perpetuated by a law-making body. The com
mittee can become a useful adjunct of the House, if
it will. Certainly there is enough material for it to
work on, and if it cooperates with professional peaev
and law enforcement groups it may do some good.”
(Detroit Free Press. January 5, 1345)
2. “It is encouraging that Rep. Rankin, who sue
ceeded in creating the committee on un-American
activities as a permanetn body of the house, has
seen his way to accept membership on the commit
tee_It is particularly reassuring-for the Deni
-ocratic majority of the house, dominated by tin
left wing influence of the CIO’s political action
committee, has packed the committee with four men
apparntly selected on the basis of their disapproval
of the committee’s purposes. All four voted a
gainst the ceation of the committee, and their ap
pointment to it demonstrated the New Deal s inten
tion to sabotage its effectiveness.’”
(Chicago Tribune. January 20. 1945).
3. “The decisive vote of the House of Represent
atives establishing the Committee on Un-American
Activities as a permanent investigating body, marks
an auspicious beginning for the new Congress. This
committee.... has always been strenuously opposed
by the New Deal Administration, but has neverthe
less always achieved extension of its authority.
However, its temporary status was always suspend
ed' over it in the manner of a Damoclean sword. And
it enemies within the administration had confident
ly expected to lower the blade on it this time for
keeps. In hat sense, of course, the action of the new
Congress is an administration defeat-This is
particularly true because the Administration had
planned not only the death of the committee but at
least the suppression and probably the destruction
of its records. The scope 01 this conspiracy only
recenetly came to light, whn it was disclosed in
Washington that the chief investigator for the com
mittee was refused a draft deferment in the face of
a formal request for it by the Joint Congressional
Deferment Committee... .The Dies Committee had
spent many years in assiduous investigation ot sub
versive activities in the United States, which was
the task assigned to it by Congress. As a result of
its investigations, it had accumulated voluminous
eveidncee of subversive activity. In its records
are more than one million names of individuals and
organizations against whom there yas eithei evi
dence or testimony of subversive activity, affiliation
or sympathy_The committee has not only been
continued, but has been given permanent status. Its
valuable records have been kept intact. The pres
tige and authority of the American Congress have
been upheld. The vital interest of the American
people have been restored.
