By Robert W. Kenny, Atty.
Gen. of California
Recently there was a report
in one of our local newspap
ers of a statement by Con
gressman Rankin, lfis usual
remarks are so wild? his poli
tical position so well-known,
that thoughtful citizens have
gotten into the habit of say
ing: This vicious, reactionary re
presentative of a handful of voters
is just blowing his ton again. Its
just the same old loud and stupid
noise from the ranks of the ene- |
my. But not long ago. Congress
man Rankin made a very import
ant, very profound remark.
He was talking about the Ku
Klux Klan. He was talking about
the possibility of the House Un
American Committee investigating
the activities of the Klan. And Mr.
Rankin said: "After all, the Klan
is a completely American institu
tion and its members are Ameri
cana. That’s not what this commi
ttee was set uo to study. Our job
is to Investigate foreign isms and
alien organizations".
Congressman Rankin mnW the
truth in part. The Ku Glux Klan
ia an American organization. It
has a history in American life. The
National Socialist Party in Ger
many was a German organization.
The German people discovered how
large a role It was to play in their
history. We. here in America, too
found out how immense a rule it
was to play in our lives.
I dont think that we here in j
America can ignore the fact that
the Klu Klux Klan is part of our
nation today. It. is the spearhead
of the most depraved, the moat
vicious and violent force in Ameri
can life. It ia the spearhead of re
action and fascism.
We cannot afford to blind our
selves to the state of our nation.
We cannot close our eyes and treat
the Klan as an organization of
maniacs and fools dedicated to
senseless acts of violence and ter
The Man with is history of vi
olence against the Negro people;
the Klan with its record of anti
semitism; the Klan with its role
of antf-democrxtic 'activity has
been selected to provide the action
front for fascism in America. And
today, money and brains are being
poured into this organization and
other little groups, such as those
led by Gerald L. K. Smith, in order
to weld together every possible or
ganization form of anti-democrat
ic action in the coming battle for

60 Officers Move
To Lockbume
From Tuskegee
Arrival last week at Lockbume
Air Base of more than 60 officers

the near future when it is contem

of duty will place the field on an
inactive status. Incoming officers

Hampton Institute’s new Dean of
Men, Thomas E. Hawkins, is ad
mittedlv ‘a man of few words’ but
he is also a man of solid achieve
ment in his chosen field.
Mr. Hawkins, who was born and
reared in Johnstown, Pa., comes to
Hampton this fall from Howard U.
where he has spent 14 years as a
staff member since receiving .his
Bachelor of Arts there in
1932. Director of Dormitories for
one year. Hawkins was promoted
to Assistant to the Dean of Men
the following year and has filled
that post ever since, in addition
to summer work as personnel dir
ector with an industrial firm.
The new Hampton appointee re
ceived a Msater of Arts Decree in
Personnel Administration and Gui
dancce from the Teachers’ College
of Columbia University in 1938 and
did graduate work at the Univer
sity of California in 1944-45.
President of the National Assn,
of Deans of Men in Negro Univer
sities and Colleges, Hawkins has
contributed articles on vocational
guidance, personnel administration
and tutorial techniques for stu
dents to professional publications
including the Vocational Guidance
Magazine, the Negro Journal of
Educational, and the Journal of
Higher Education.
Mr. Hawkins has at least two
special interests, .one directly con
nected with his vocation, the other
indirectly. The first is the stress
he lays on the importance of stu
dent tutorial or coaching staff to
eliminate failures; and the other is
his hobby of collecting poems that
he feels will be useful to students
in developing self-discipline.

I am thinking now of Sarah Gib

years, only men have filled the
presidency. Since she is the only
woman ever appointed to that dis
tinctive position, Sarah Gibson
Blanding is filling not one man’s
shoes, .but quite a few men’s shoes
Miss Blanding hails from the blue
grass state—home of thorobred
horses, colonels and beautiful wo
men. Although she was born of
poor farm parents near Lexington
47 years ago, where she even tru
cked her tobacco crop to market,
during her school years, Sarah
Gibson Blanding with her desire
for a growing knowledge, .grew
wiser through the years.
Tall, friendly and straight-talk
ing, Miss Blanding is an avid read
er, a painstaking preparer of her
well delivered speeches, and a re
gular fellow, for she smokes and
wears lipstick. Her superior know
ledge and precedent-breaking po

NEW YORK—The conjing sea
son on Boadway is going''to be a
difficult one for mpst of the shows
in preparation. The customers have
been alerted by the consistent rise
in prices, and they will be shop
ping for amusement with a most
discerning eye. What will be the
fate of the shows that are schedu
led to take to the road in the next
few weeks is hard to determine.
Some of them have been out be
fore with great success, but this
season may show less generosity.
Top among the shows taking to
the highways and by-ways, is Bil
ly Rose’s “Carmen Jones”, a mas
terpiece of adaptation, based on
Bizet’s popular opera, “Carmen”.
A thirty-six state tour, with con
centration on the south is planned
and this will put the opera in a
class by itself, since it will have
been seen by more persons over a
wide area than any recent Broad
way production.
Despite Rose’s claims that thi3
company will be greater than ever
there is every reason to believe it
will be traveling on the reputation
built i nthe past by stars of the
excellence of Inez Matthews. Miss
Matthews is no longer singing the
role of “Carmen”, and it is not so
likely that she will succumb to the
tempting offers being made to her
by emissaries from the Rose off
ice. Having been over worked and
under publicized, Miss Matthews is
not willing to sacrifice another
year away from the concert stage
even to sing the role she loves so
well, and which she gave so much
of her talent.
Unless some casting miracle oc
curs, “Carmen Jones” will struggle
through this season with an abun
dance of new talent that cannot do
justice to the standard set for the
past two seasons. The music will
be the same, and the scenery will
be bigger and newer, but for all
that, it will be a second rate pro
Hardy perenial on the Broadway
scene is “Anna Lucusta” which is
the American Negro Theatre’s big
claim to fame. Having been pre
sented uptown by the Negro
Troup, ‘Anna” caught on and made
quick tracks to Broadway where
P>he is really knocking herself out.
Unlike most of the original pro
ductions of the American Negro
Theatre, “Anna Lucasta” has
brought out some real talent. The
ANT has struggled hard for about
nine years and it will probably
make its goal, but at the moment
it doesn’t have an impressive bat

Currently plyaing the role of
“Anna” is Yvonne Dolores Mach

Political Action Program
Adopted by Naacp
(Continued from Page 1)
in the committee’s report that the
membership in many instances
would be more familiar with local
situations. Local awareness would
be further implemented, however,
by a clarification of issues af
fecting Negroes and other minor
ities by experts in the national
In the matter of ratings of can
didates the national office shall
limit itself to giving full informa
tion on the voting records of Sen
ators and Congressmen with par
ticular emphasis on issues affec
ting Negroes. Since the National
Office will not rate candidates on
a state level, these candidates
shall be judged on their relative
positions where these issues are
concerned. NAACP members will
be kept in constant awareness of
these issues primarily through the
Association’s regular publication’s
the CRISIS magazine and a month
ly tabloid, THE BULLETIN, co
pies of which go to NAACP mem
bers only. This program will ap
ply to primaries as well as gen
eral elections.
The following resolutions were
voted as recommendations to the
Board of Directors by the Com
mittee :
1. That the Association go on
record as not endorsing any poli
tical party or any individual be
cause of party connections are af
filiation. —
2. That the policy of the NAA
CP shall be that branches are ur
ged to examine proposals, purely
non-partisan in character as lis
ted below, affecting local or state
public issues and which require
electorate approval; to take a po
sition for cr against such propos
als within the Constitutional lim
its of the Association, unless good
cause be presented why a position
not be taken; and give active sup
port to a pflsition taken thereon.
To include such issues as:
a. Proposals arising locally or
state-wide by and through initi
ative and referendum.
b. Bond issues.
c. Charter and Constitutional
Where proposal is state-wide,
state references of branches, where
they exist, are urged to determine
and announce a position to be bind
ing on all branches. Otherwise,
some workable intra-state method
should be devised for unified co
ordinated action after consulta
tion with the national office.
3. That the National Board call
a meeting of all representative Ne
gro organizations to consider the
question of focusing attention on
issues that will come up for de
cision in the election of candidates
in the fall and the importance of
Negroes participating actively by
registering and voting. Further
recommended that advertisements
and other material be carried in
the press.
4. That the Board call upon
every branch to conduct a regist
ration and voting drive.
5. That an entire issue of the
BULLETIN be devoted to regis
tration and voting.
6. That the Board consider the
use of staff assistants and prepa
ration of material that would be
of assistance to the load branches
in the conducting of registration
and turning out the vote drives.
An indication of the far-reach
ing implications in the Associa
tion’s newly adopted program may
be found in the recently published
analysis of the vote by which re
presentative Roger C. Slaughter
was defeated for renomination in
Kansas City. According to an au
thoritative source, this analysis i3
being studied with unusual inter
est in both Republican and Demo
cratic national headquarters.
According to this analysis, com
piled by a member of the execu
tive committee of the National
Negro Publishers Assn. Mr. Slau
ghter was beaten solely by Negro
voters on the issue of his oppo
sition to FEPC. The analysis fur
ther forecasts that the same re
sentment will be shown by Ne
groes toward other members of
Congress, both Republicans and
Democrats, whose records are bad
on legislation involving the secur
ity and rights of minority grouns.
This forecast is murther imple
mented by the fact that in addi
tion to those voting areas where
NAACP branches and members
weild political influence, many
thousands of Negroes are given
the right to vote in the NAACP
victory in the US Supreme Court
are going to the polls. A. concer
ted drive is being planned as part
of the NAACP Political Action
Program to increase the registra

Meat Shortage
(Continued from Page 1)
the farm on June 1, slaughter in
July and August was up 36 per
cent over the same period last
year. But, he said, despite a 36
oer cent increase in slaughter, pork
production was up only 28 per cent
in the same two months. Again the
reason for the lower pork produc
tion was that thousands of hogs
were marketed prematurely in
July and August.
“This discussion, I hope has made
clearer why meat is scarce.
“But the people in this country
want meat and should be able to
look to their government to pro
tect the available supply.
"Their proper question is What
is OP A doing to insure that we
get our fair share?
Here is our answer:
“The OPA has a system of quo
tas whereby each community gets
a fair share of the slaughter. Un
der this system we are now en
gaged in a thorough combing of
all slaughtering operations to de
termine which slaughterers are le
gitimate and which are not. We are
moving rapidly in this field and are
already showing results in barring
those individuals from slaughter
whom we know have Deen engaged
in illegal traffic in meat.
“The Office of Price Administra
tion is watching carefully those
nlaces we have reason to believe
live cattle are being diverted from
the legitimate channels of trade i*>
to slaughter houses that are ille
gitimate. We want to keep mer*
flowing in legitimate channels to
establish and honest slaughter
houses and packing houses," he
We anticipate that we shall have
better cooperation from the public
than we have ever had before said
Moran. We thing that the nublio
realizes that, as American citizen
they have a_ duty to report vioiat
ions of the law to the local price
control boards. We believe they)
will not think of themselves as j
moopers but as people who have!
been overcharged by greedy viola
tors and that they will stamp out
those illegal practices with the
help of their friends and neigh
bors on the local boards.
If we have this cooperation from
the public we, can attain an order
ly marketing of meat supply. We
shall have some meat at hone~t
prices. We are now working on the
problem of public cooperation and
expect to have an important an
nouncement along this line in a
few days’’.

To Oppose $8,000,000 Tax
‘‘$40 per pupil means more
than $8,000,000 in additional
taxes,” said Merle A. Haynes,
Dakota County Superintendent
of Public Instruction and Presi
dent of the recently created Ne
braska Educational Foundation,
Inc. “That’s just one reason why
we believe the $40 per pupil State
Aid for schools amendment
should be resoundingly defeat
Merle A. Haynes
Superintendent Haynes went
on to point out several other
defects in the proposed bill.
First is the fact that a constitu
tional amendment is unneces
sary. “If we found that we
actually had t{> have more than
$8,000,000 in State aid to run our
schools efficiently, we could
raise the money by an act of the
legislature. The constitution al
ready empowers the legislature
to raise as much money as i®
necessary to educate everyone
between the ages of 5 and 21
A study of the amendment,
Haynes pointed out, would lead
to the inescapable conclusion
that rural taxpayers would be
soaked to defray tne costs of
schooling big city children. ‘*If
this amendment should be pass
ed in its present form,” Haynes
said, ‘‘residents right here in
Dakota County would have to
pay in 560,000 of taxes and would
receive only $25,000 worth oi
school aid.”
Educational circles are sharp
ly split in their attitude toward
the amendment. Many of them
resent attempts of Frank C.
Heinisch, of Omaha (a paid loo
byist and secretary of the Oma
ha Teachers Association) to *ax
every teacher $5 for a campaign
fund to put over the amendment.
In addition, teachers themselves
had no part in deciding how the
$40 per pupil was to be distribut
ed to the schools.
“The question uppermost in
the voter’s mind,” Mr. Haynes
stated, “should be whether or
not he wants to vote to support
the schools of Omaha, whose
levy is only half as great as most
rural districts or whether lie
will wait for a better law such as

October 5th
The U. S. Army Recruiting Ser
vice is urging that all applicants
who are planning to enlist in the
Regular Army by October 5th in
order to qualify for the full bene
fits under the G. I. Bill of Rights,
do so NOW, rather than wait un
til a few days before the deadline
Mr. Brown points to the organi
zation, political skill and courage
which were behind the outpuoring
of over 100,000 Negro voters in the
Georgia Primary. “The most lau
dable thing about the Negroes vo
ting in Georgia was the fact that
the masses of them were as an
xious and resolved to vote as their
leaders were to have them to” the
Headlines and Pictures article says
Although Negroes threw their'
strength overwhelmingly in the,
Carmichael comer, both Rivers and I
Talmadge sought the 'support of
Negro voters to a lesser extent.
Big business threw its weight be

to maintain racial discrimination
and segregation and their mono
oly over the economic life of that
section’*, Mr. Brown adds.
The deadline of midnight October
5th means that enlistees must ac
tually be sworn into the Army by
that time, and because of the great
number of enlistees who are now
reporting to Recruiting Headquar
ters for their physical examina
tions and final acceptance, the pro
cessing of the men has necessarily
slowed down. Therefore, applicants
should take this into consideration
and enlist in sufficient time to pre
clude any possibility of not being
accepted by the 5th.
Any man who enlists by Octo
ber, 5, 1946, is guaranteed bene
fits of the G. I. Bill of Rights for
the full period of his enlistment,
while the man who enlists after
5 October is assured benefits under
the G I Bill only for that part of
his term of enlistment which is
served prior to the termination of
the present war, regardless of the
term of his enlistment. For exam
ple: if a man enlists by October 5,
say for a three year period, ho
will be entitled to 12 months plus
36 months (or 48 months total) of
schooling. However, if he enlists
after October 5, he will be assured
of receiving benefits for only that
part of his enlistment which is
served prior to the termination of
the war. Should the war continue
for only 3 months after the date
of his enlistment, he will be entit
led to 12 months plus 3 months
