    The Negro in Latin America
By Harold Preece
Our Negro brothers of Puert
Rico didn’t cheer too much wher.
President Truman appointed Juc
ge William Hastie as governor c
the neighboring Virgin Island;
even though they were glad to se
a colored man appointed to th
position as such.
They were wondering wiie:
President Tru • an meant to keej
a certain promise that he mad
to them, citizens of a captive ns
tion he’d in subjection by
can imperialism They were woi
dering also if Judge Hastie wa
not mavbe being u>ed by the Tri
man administration as a front fo
that imperialism.
How they felt is pretty wp!
summed up by an article whic:
' appeared recently in a fi; e litti
bulletin, the Americas, publishe
by the Council for Pan America:.
Democracy in New York. I want
my readers to share this articl
and here it goes:
What has happened to the ad
ministration’s bill offering tv
Puerto Rican people an opportur
ity to determine their future re
latiors with the United States
After President Truman's recen*
message to Congress, it was gen
erally assumed (a) that such f
bill would be drafted and intrr
duced in Congress with adminip
tration sponsorship; lb) that ttu
bill, recognizing that statehoo
and ‘dominion’ statue are withou
substa :tial support either in Co*
gress or in the Island, would put
the choice clearly between inde
pendence and continued colonial
ism: and ic) that hearings cn the
b 11 would be held in the Senatr
soon nft®r tve f**st of the - n?r.

Well Kids! Aou know we can only say so little, and see
80 mneh. We wonder if there is any thing between D. Jon
ted by the Puerto Rican Pro-Inde
pendence Congress were lncorpor'
ated in the measure on the senate
floor. We should ' be even more
pleased if the house passed the
Marcontonio bill—which incorpor
ates those amendments.
But there has been no White
House statement to the effect that
Prsident Truman will support the
Tydings Marcantonio independence
measure and accept it as a substi
tute for »ome form of plebiscite
There has only teen a silent ac
ceptance of Senator’s announce
ment that no hearngs on the Puer
to Rican question are to be held.
At the same time, and from
various quarters, comes a revival
of the old campaigns for the re
peal of all the social and labor le
gislation passed in the Island dur
ing the Roosevelt decade. The New
York Herald Tribune ran a whole
3eries of fantastic front-page sto
ries by one Emmet Crozier who
ias just returned from Puerto Ri
co w'here he made a study of eco
nomic and political conditions. Mr
Jrozier’s findings have a suspici
ous resemblance to those of the
Ball Committee of the House. US
Help Makes Collectivism in Puer
to Rico Look Profitable. Puerto
Rico is in Full Swing of Experi
nent in Collectivism Islands Tre
asury is Rich in Rum Tax Million -
But the Trend is Toward Collect
Mr .Crozier is quite sshockec
by some of his own revelations:
"Public money has taken over the
lower and light systems. A com
munications authority is trying tc
ouy the telephone company from
3osthenes Behn for the people
Public money is building factor
es operating sugar mills, buying
■o-4 pirei jo sajos jo spurr-o' •?
he big sugar growers and redis
ributing them among the people—
But Mr Crozier’s most interest
ing revelation is the ff < * that
the Democratic National Comm
ittee recently sent Judge Welburn
Maycock, ine of its legal advisors
‘o make a survey of the Puerto
Rico situation. There were signs
vhen Judge Maycock left Puerto
Rico that he had been not only
mpressed but astonished by what
he had found here Judge May
cock'g findings checked closely
with the recent report of the house
(Bell) subcommittee's investigat
ing Puerto Rico affairs"
Now the opponents , of Puerto
Paean independence argue that
without US aid the Puerto Rican
people will starve. There are many
Puerto Ricans, patriots who hate
the shamg of colonial status, who
have been taught to fear indepen
dence by that argument.
But the Bell Committee develop
ed a program for starvation tinder
colonialism through diversion of
the rum taxes from the Insular
Treasury' and the repeal of all the
recent legislation which has some
what mitigated the Is and's econj
mic misery.
According to Mr. Crozier, Judge
Maycock’s findings agree with the
ones of the Bell Committee- And
Judge Maycock was no free lance
sightseer but a representative cf
the Democratic National Comm
Have Judge Maycock and the'
Democratic National Committee
changed President Truman's mind :

U. (MO.) $462,500 FOR
Jefferson City, Mo., February
10, 1946—The Appropriations
Committee of the House of Rep
resentatives branch of the Miss
ouri Legislature has approved a
grant to State Supported insti
tutions with S426.500 for Lincoln
University -(Missouri) to provide
dormitories primarily for veter
ans. The bill, if passed by the up
per branch of the legislature, car
ries with it a provision by which
the school must match this sum
to be used exclusively for resi
dence halls. It is estimated the
funds, when matched, would be
sufficient to provide housing for
300 students
The urgenev for the need of the
proposed facilities is obviated by
the competely filled campus re
sidence halls and the overflow in
the city and the rejection of ap
proximately 200 applicants for
admissian to the university.

Dear Chaterbor:
Has anyone informed the two young ladies who are
so earnestly competing for the amourous attention of L. B.
alias. Jack, that he and his socialite wife are looking for
ward to a blessed event in the near future? If it‘s a girl,
they'll call it Betty Lorraine.
Dear Chatter-Box:
To whom it may concern : Tin re is no need for the com
petition for the attention of L. B. because I'm sure the on
who has had him for the last four years is still woman I
enough and able to hold him against anything that should
get in her wa>. As for the so-ca led blessed event, there is I
no wife, so naturally there isn't any e\ent. One -.vtao is'nt
woman enough to hold her man doesn't deser\e him. On»
who calls herself a friend should act like one rather than
a public man chaser! UNQUOTE

! Self
and Good
Self-regulation means that
the man in business regulates
i his own conduct and the con
duct of his help and his cus
tomers while in his place of
business in such a way that
constituted officials have little
to do about law enforcement
and the correction of bad
practices. There is a vast dif
ference between a desire to
observe the laws and a deter
mination or desire to “cheat
the law.”
All licensed beer retailers
are aware of Self-Regulation
and the great majority be
lieve in its principles. Fre
quent observations and sug
gestions are made bv the Ne
braska Committee for better
operating practices, and in
most instances, retailers read
ily follow suggestions. If a
retailer does not, representa
tions are made to the licens
ing and law enforcement
authorities who will see to it
that the offending licensee
either corrects his faults or is
deprived of his license.
Such a vigilant program as
sures your city or community
of reputable retailers, who
sell beer in a legal and whole
some manner.
