Nebr JoeLouis, Orson Welles To Head Drive for Southern Conference for Human Welfare OUR GUEST , Column I Edited by Verna P. Harris By James Peck, Editor, News Service. Workers Defense League During ourr anti-jimcrow pick eting of the American Prison As sociation’s convention last fall in New York, one passerby stopped, scrutinized our signs, shook her head and said: “You mean to say they discriminate even in prison ?" We nodded and answered yes. Some of us on that interracial pi ckett line were speaking from ex perience, as far as federal prisons are concerned, since we had served time as conscientious objectors and had observed, first hand, the white supremacy behind bars. Some of us, including myself, had been locked in solitary at Dan bury (Conn.) four and a half months for going on strike to end jimcrow in the prison mess hall. Using the same phoney arguments employed to- defend racial segre gation in the outside world, U. S. Prisons Director James V. Ben nett and the warden had warned that the inmates would not stand for abolition of jimcrow, that a bloody riot would result and that such changes cannot be made all at once. Yet, following our strike, non segregated seating was put into effect without any incident. And within a few days it was taken for granted even by the handful of southern-minded whites who had said they would never sit next to a Negro. Following the Danbury strike, segregated seating was eliminated as a result of protest actions by prisoners in Tucson (Ariz.) and New York City. And since that time additional progress has been made, even in the south. At Ashland (Kentucky), where last year 14 men including three Negroes and a Japanese-American were locked in solitary confine ment for opposing jimcrow. The Prisons Bureau tried to break this strike by transferring some of the strikers to other prisons. But the strikers held out. As on the outside, there is job discrimination in federal prisons, most Negroes being relegated to menial jobs. At Dewisburg (Pa.) such discrimination became so fla grant that on one occasion 30 Ne groes refused to eat. Two of them were thrown into solitary and some time thereafter another was transferred to Atlanta (Ga.), at which place he received rough treatment. But meanwhile a coupple of the Ashland anti-jimcrow strikers were shipped to Lewisburg and the drive against job discrimina tion continued. As a result orders arrived recently from Washington that hereafter at least 10 percent of the prison’s white collar jobs are to go to Negroes. Previously Negroes had been barred complete ly from such jobs. At Milan (Michigan) similar protest actions by inmates ended segregation in some of the sleep ing quarters as well as in the mess hall. The Red Cross blood segrega tion policy, as practiced by the prison collection units, aroused re sentment among many prisoners. Refusing to give their blood to the Red Cross 40 Negroes and whites at Danbury in 1943 donated it in stead to a local hospital which does not segregate blood. At Mi lan a Jewish inmate handed a , Red Cross official a letter criti cizing the segregated blood bank policy. Claiming that this consti ' tuted smuggling, prison officials deprived him of a year’s time off for good behavior. An outstanding feature of these prison struggles for Negro rights was the solidarity of other min ority groups. Jewish and Oriental prisoners took leading parts in the various anti-jimcrow strikes. Recognizing the importance of the anti-jimcrow struggle behind prison walls, the National Associ ation for the Advancement of Col ored People at its recent Cincin nati convention adopted an am nesty resolution saying: “espec ially do we wish to commend con scientious objectors who have been instrumental in breaking down ra cial barriers in several federal pri sons”. ,o _APA Mrs. A.

C., July 25th —Harold G. Stagg, editor of the Veterans Edition of Army Times, admitted carelessness in publish ing an offensive joke in the pub lication’s 'Mess Line’ column as a result of NAACP pressure. The joke in question, containing the word n.—r, received wide cir culation in the paper and was cal led to the attention of the NAACF KLAN TAKES NAZI-FASCIST BATON IN DESTRUCTION RELAY RACE Group Seeks “To Improve Economic, Social, Spiritual and Cultural Conditions of South Without Regard to Race, Creed or Color”. . NEW YORK, N. Y._(GNS)_ When the Southern Conference for Human Welfare has its much needed Drive here in September it will be headed by two greats— Joe Louis and Orson Welles. Plans are well under way in the New York Office here where pe tite and charming Branson Price has just returned from a southern tour where some conditions for the Negro are still somewhat working under deplorable condi tions. Many of such conditions and special cases have been helped by this group which was formed in 1938 with the purpose to improve economic, social, spiritual and cul tural conditions of the people of the south without regard to race, creed or color. In order to get the Drive be fore an unlimited number of peo ple here a luncheon for the Inter denominational Ministerial Alli ance is being held here at the Ho tel Theresa next week. The Drive of the Conference will no doubt be a grand success with the committee having such chairmen as Joe Louis, Boxing Champ and Orson Welles, Theatre Champ.

In a letter to Madison Jones, NAACP Administrative Assistant Mr. Stagg stated, ‘‘The real blame lies with me. The ‘Mess Line' col umn is subject to my censorship, but somehow the joke in question escaped my notice at the time the column was submitted. I trust that you will overlook the stupid mistake involved this time. I as sure you it will not be repeated”. LARGEST NEGRO HOME BUILDER BUILDS FOR NEGRO WAR VETERANS From coaching championship football teams to building houses is a decided change but Walter “Chief” Aiken of Atlanta, Georgia negotiated it successfully. Today he is known as the largest Negro home builder in the country and the largest builder in Atlanta, ac cording to a story in the August] issue of HEADLINES AND PIC TURES. “Chief” Aiken has coached foot ball teams at Howard, Atlanta and Fisk Universities and Clark College. It was in 1925 that he entered the building field but only as a side line and it wa3 not until 1939 that he decided to devote his time exclusively to construction work. • For Greater Coverage ADVERTISE in the Guide THE — ...-.' 1 Street... | J and ! thereabouts^ HL'. ' If II B by Lawrence P. Lewis On the 11th of August golfers from the Central States; Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, Minnesota, and Nebraska, will gather in Minnea polis. The greater part of them will be seeking the Central States Golf Championship. Many of the old gang, who year ly participated in the Central States Golf Tournament, have moved and will not be with us this year. But there are those who have replaced them, and with a decent break, might bring the title back to Nebraska. I have played on golf courses in St. Paul and Minneapolis, and you will find they are superior to the ones that we play on around here. Plenty of hazards; deep ruffs and plenty of water. Greens and fairways in excellent condi tion. We expect the fellows to bring back the bacon. Although many of us cannot be there with you in person, it is our wish that all of you perform, finding the course to your liking, to the very best of your ability.

Our community has a right to be proud of the men in Engine Co. $1,000 Reward Offered by Naacp For South Carolina Policemen Who Maimed hegro Veteran NEW YORK—The National As sociation for the Advancement of Colored People posted a $1000 re ward to any person or persons supplying information which will lead to the apprehension and con viction of the sadistic Aiken, So.

The posting of the reward was an nounceir at an NAACP sponsored meeting of representatives from veterans’ organizations Wednes day, July 24th in New York's Wendell Willkie Memorial Bldg. JUDGE ADMITS STANLEY R. OSBORN WILL The will of Stanley R. Osborn. Nebraska author who died recently was admitted to probate by County Judge Robert Troyer Saturday, July 27th. After first providing for certain bequests to relatives, the bulk of the estate will go toward provid ing scholarships and similar aids ‘"V create such employment as would assist Negroes in using their advanced training constructively. Mr. Osborn had made an ex haustive analytical study of the Vmerican Negro ar.d his problems. He reasoned that to withhold and suppress by customs and preju dice the talents of the large Ne gro population was a double loss to the nation; since energy was being spent to restrain useful en ergy. In his desire to do whatever he could “to help Colored Americans upward into a more efficient and productive citizenship”, Mr Osborn willed the bulk of his wealth to create opportunity for the ambi tious and capable of the Negro Race. Where feasible, Mr Osborn asked that preference in setting up the scholarships be shown, respective ly, to the University of Nebraska. Illinois Institute of Technology, and Iowa State College. He also asked preference for Negroes of Nebraska. The Omaha National Bank Tru stees, said it would take several months to work out the initial provisions of the will, after which information and specifications of “The Stanley R. Osborn Fund” will be made available. No. 14, and the record that it holds. The men in Engine Co. No. 14 also have a right to be proud. There is little our community can say, except, “thanks gentle men. for your long and faithful service”. Outstanding men such as Alonzo Jackson, Senior Captain, who has been with the Omaha Fire De partment since 1911; Winifred Freeman, Junior Captain, 1919; Jasper Cole, Pipeman. 1922; Man uel Cook, Pipeman, 1923; Robert Greene, Chauffuer, 1928; Harry Speese, Pipeman, 1931; Kittrell Hudson, Pipeman 1932; Clarence Davis, Pipeman, 1934; William King, Chauffuer, 1942; Warren Alston, Pipeman, 1942; are now serving with Engine Co. No. 14. Venturing as far down as the Althouse School of Beauty Cul ture, and wanting nothing more than to say hello to Mrs. Althouse, who during my tender years as a young man, used to give me and the many other young people of St. John’s church, so much good advYe, when she was the sponsor of our church Club, I entered an almost empty beauty school. After questioning one of the la dies there I found out they were having a picnic, and they politely asked me to come back the next day. I could easily tell that they did not realize how lazy this man was, and how hot the sun is mak ing these days. So I called Mrs Althouse, hoping that it could all be completed over the telephone. I was surprised to find that she had so many girls in training. 21 ladies are now studying at the Althouse School of Beauty Cul ture. After looking over all of the modem equipment and the amount of supplies Mrs. Althouse has. I could understand why so many cjioose her Beauty School. Not even mentioning Mrs. Althouse, who for so many years has been an excellent instructor and oper ator. Those now taking the course at the Althouse School of Beauty Culture are: Ruth Arnold; Willa Mae Battles; Daisy Bennett; Mar guerite Birdsong of Council Bluffs, Iowa; Betty Mae Mryant; Naomi Byron; Aritha Claire of Lincoln; Dorothy Dunn; Nellie Hill of Ok lahoma City, Okla.; Carrie Holmes Craig; Ruth Hollingsworth; Odes sa Hudson of Lincoln; Anna John ?AT 3Qth & LAKE Gunman Kills Service Station Attendant ^ Walter D. Cline, 45, 3335 Maple St. was killed by a gunman late Thursday night in his service sta tion at 30th and Lake Sts. The shooting was witnessed by Robert Cline, son of the slain man. Both well-known by motorists and residents of this area. Robert said he arrived at the station as the shooting started, tried vainly to save his father by rushing the gun man with a tire tool. He threw the tool at the fleeing gunman but missed. Mr. Cline died without be ing able to tell a clear story of what happened. No arrest had been made Friday morning. An attendant in the station across the street, who heard the shots, called police. He said there was about five shots in all. A pre liminary examination indicated that Mr. Cline was shot once, thru the chest. Inspector Franks theorized that the man had started to hold up Mr. Cline.

Baker, Over seer and the public is invited. son; Ethel Killingsworth; Mr. Her bert Mason; Jewell Palmer; Betty Patten, Kansas; Ann Smithermann of Lincoln; Evelyn Williams; Mer cedees Wendell; and Celestine White. May of my associates say I am too young to wish the table turned back ten or more years, but what could be more fun, than attend ing club meeting at Mrs. Althou se’s residence arguing with mem bers, and planning a picnic or how to raise money for the church, and all the fellows making eyes at the prettiest gal. One of the most adorable little girls that live in the Logan Fon tenelle Homes is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Hall, 1432 North 24th St. It is not very often I get to talk to little ladies that are only 5 years old so I grabbed at the chance to talk to this intel ligent young lady of five. “Peaches”, that is what she is called by almost everyone, and even as tasty and delicious as a peach is, this young lady far sur passes that. ‘‘Do you go to Sunday School?” I asked. “Yes, and we go every Sunday”, she answered. ‘‘What church do you go to?”, I asked. “St. John’s”. “When you are playing with all of your friends what do you like to do best?” I asked. “I like to play house with my dolls. I like to take a shower un der the hose. I like to swing, make mud pies, but Mama don’t want me to play in the dirt. I like to play hair-dresser”, Peaches said. "You are 5 years old. I suppose you will be going to school this fall?” I asked. “Yes”. “I’ll see you later, Peaches. Goodbye”. As I turned to go she was dash ing off toward her little friends. Her beautiful, long, dark-brown hair was trying to catch up with her. What thoughts were in her mind nobody knows. I wonder if it could be mud-pies, dolls, or a ride on the scooter. I guess I’ll never know. Men s Day Speaker DR. S. H. LEWIS, a. B. D. D.

SENATOR HUGH BUTLER MAKES STATEMENT UNITED STATES SENATE To My Fellow Republican: Needless to say, I was very pleased at the fine votes I receiv ed at the Primary, June 11th. This was, of course, due in a large part to the untiring efforts of my num berless good friends in Nebraska. To them go my many thanks. It would be impossible to write all a personal letter, so I am forced to use this method of ex pressing my gratitude, but never theless it is just as sincere. I hope to see just as many of you as possible when I return to Nebraska later this fall. Thanks a million!

Ross Professes Love For Slain Wife Says Not Acquainted With Burnell 23-year-old Oklahoma born Wil liam Ross who caused a furore on the near Northside last Tuesday night with the trench-knife slay ing of his wife Mattie Ross and Levon Burnell at 2929 Franklin St. now occupies a cell in the County Jail awaiting his trial on first-de gree murder charges. The trial will come up in the fall term of court. COUNTY ATTORNEY’S STATEMENT Thomas A. Walsh, deputy county attorney, in a statement to the Omaha Guide, said: “We look upon this double slaying of Mattie Ross and Levon Burnell by William Ross as a ra ther cold-blooded proposition. If Ross and the defense insist upon their present plea of Not Guilty of first-degree murder, the prosecu tion will ask for the death pen alty’’. Mr. Walsft said that according to witnesses and the information he had available, Mrs. Mattie Ross was apparently a decent woman. We have witnesses, atty. Walsh said, to prove that Ross had pre viously beaten and mistreated both his wife and three-year-old baby. He said Ross was in violation of a court restraining order when he entered the house. He said that evidence showed that after Burn ell dived out of an upstairs win dow, Ross again pursued Burnell and that there was evidence of a terrific scuffle around the garage and in the rear of 2929 Franklin St. Burnell later having staggered or crawled almost to Seward St. where he died. ROSS SHOTWELL, DEFENSE ATTORNEY Attorney Ross Shotwell, attorney for the defense, in a statement to the Omaha Guide said: ■‘The defense plea for William Ross will be ‘The Unwritten Law’ and his wrought up mental state of mind. From my consultation with him previously, as his attor ney, I am of the opinion that over powering grief put him in a wrought up state of mind. The fear that his home was going to be broken up; that some outside in fluence was working to separate him from his family. Ross had given his family a regular allow ance during the nearly three years he spent in the army. Ross work ed hard to support his family be fore he entered the army and ha3 been working since his return. I don’t believe he can be classed as the criminal-minded type. I’m go ing to do everything ■within my power to see that he gets a fair deal in these proceedings. Circum stances surrounding and leading up to these acts undoubtedly caus ed him to ‘see red’. I don’t believe in killings, and I believe they should be stopped but circumstances such as Ross experienced have often caused, otherwise normal people to lose their sense of mental bal ance.’’ ROSS’ STATEMENT When asked his reason for the slayings, Ross replied to report ers: 'I suppose I loved her too much. No man in the world ever loved a woman any more than I did my wife”. Ross, quiet spoken, said he was born in Oklahoma, coming to Omaha in 1941. He said while in the army he served in France and Germany with the 1323 Engineers which was attached to the Third Army.. “I asked permission to see my wife just once more for the last time before she is hurried, but I don’t suppose I will get the chance' Ross seemed visibly disturbed when I told him that she had been buried Monday. ‘‘But they told me Tuesday”, he repeated twice.. “.. We were getting the house fixed up. I had bought a washing machine and a icebox. I wanted to get a mechanical refrigerator, but I didn’t have enough money at the time. I bought her a new brown suit, for a present..it cost $75”. When asked why he happened to be at the house on the night of the slaying, he said he had per mission to get his personal belong ings and that he had took some of them earlier in the evening and was to come back that night or the first thing in the morning’ to get the rest. “.. I didn’t know Burnell per SILBO, TALMADGE ENCOURAGE RACE HATE VIOLATIONS NEW YORK, July 26_Governor elect Eugene Talmadge's Klan backed exhortations to mob-vi olence against Negroes bore grim fruit last night, Thursday, July 25th, when an armed mob in Wal ton County, Georgia, dragged two Negroes and their wives from their homes and lynched them in the nearby woods. According to reports filtering m to the NAACP News Bureau, the lynching was the culmination of ill-feeling existing between Roger Malcolmn, and a white farmer identified only as Hester, which began with an altercation between the two men several weeks ago According to latest reports Mal colm, George Butler, his brother in-law and both their wives were seized by the mob last night and hustled off into the woods where* their mutilated bodies were found this morning. These lynchings follow closely upon the threatenings ravings of Bilbo in Mississippi and Talmadge in Georgia, both of whom demand ed that mob action be taken to “keep Negroes in their place". Of ficials of the NAACP also point ed to the bestial gouging out of the eyes of veteran Isaac Wood ard recently in South Carolina. Walter White, NAACP executive secretary, in a statement to the Associated Press stated; “The quadruple lynchings of two Negroes and their wives in Walton County, Georgia, yester day is the inevitable, inescapable result of Talmadge’s and the Klu i,, - Gian's advocacy of outrigh violation of the laws of the feder al government and human decen cy. Election of a man as brazen as Hitler in hi3 racial theoric. makes other dastardly crimes of this nature inevitable unless the federal government and the powc of public opinion call a halt t® such criminality. Negroes were the victims yesterday; other min orities and eventually democracy itself will be the victims tomor row. ‘These lynchings are not isola ted. They fit smugly into the pat tern of lawlessness being whipped up in the south, such as the Col umbia, Tennessee, outbreak of last February, the more recent goug ing out of the eyes of a Negro war veteran at Aiken, South Car olina, three hours after he had been honorably discharged from the army on returning from the Pacific, and other crimes. The National Association for the Ad vancement of Colored People has today called on President Truman and Attorney General Tom Clark to proceed at once against the I ljmchers under the conspiracy and J civil rights statutes, j ‘‘The NAACP has consistently [ urged the federal government to 1 stop mob violence. This it has failed to do. What other alterna tive is left these citizens, many of them veterans? ‘‘At a time when our statesmen are demanding democracy and a restoration of morality in Iran, Germany, China, Japan, Yugosla via and Bulgaria it seems ironic when Americans are dying because of a lack of this same democracy in Georgia, Mississippi, South Ca rolina (the home of our Secretary of State) and other parts of the south." KLAN STRIVES TO KEEP HITLERS CONTENTIONS ALIVE Terming the lynchings of four Negroes in Monroe, Georgia, "the climax of a series of terror attacks on minority groups which threat ens the internal peace of the na tion”, the American Council on Race Relations today called upon the hundreds of mayors and gover nor’s commissions and civic unity councils with which it works to use “every means at your dispo sal to bring these undemocratic acts to a halt”. The American Council, which is the central body in its field, warn ed that ‘‘the attacks have not been confined to any one region of the country or one minority group”. (CONTINUED on (p^Page 8) sonally. My wife had mentioned his name, but I didn’t know him. She said he used to put some of the fellows out when they became unruly”. Ross said that he was expecting a visit Friday from his two Oma ha relatives. He refused an offer of cigarettes, said he didn't smoke. “..Just lost my head, I guess, when I saw them there.. ”, Rosa concluded. The trial will be held in October. THOMAS F. SCOTT DEAD Thomas F.
