Jackie Robinson, Brooklyn’s “rookie
of the year,” says he will sign his
1948 contract on terms offered by the
Dodger boss, Branch Rickey.
“You’ll be playing for a lot more
money, of course,” he was asekd.
“But definitely,” the star Negro
first baseman replied. Robinson drew
$5,000 his first season in the major
Robinson said he has not discussed i
salary terms with Rickey, "but what
ever Mr. Rickey says will no doubt I
be fair and all riflght.”
Vote Robinson Rickey Awards
New York, N. Y. (AP>—'The Na
tional Urban league, interacial social
service agency, announced Sunday
Branch Rickey, president of the
Brooklyn baseball team, and Jackie
Robinson, Dodger Negro first base
man, have been voted the league’s
1947 Two Friends’ award.
The award, established in 1945, is
given annually for outstanding work.
Medallions will be presented the two
Dodgers Feb. 12.
Lloyd K. Garrison, president of the
organization, said “Although Mr.
Rickey engaged Mr. Robinson simply
as an athlete and Mr. Robinson did
his job as an athlete, the fact remains
that in working together at their jobs
they demonstrated the American ideal
of harmonious inter-racial relations.”

“We are just stepping along with
the new trend,” Branch McCracken,
Indiana basketball coach, is quoted
as saying.
“Indiana will not be a party in the
future to any agreement which will

to make the grade. Baseball no longer
draws the color line and we should
not do it in our universities.”
Participation by Negro players will
not be unprecedented in the Big Nine.

Norman, Okla. (AP) — Mrs. Ada
Lois Sipel Fisher, 23-year-old Negro
Monday spumed a new law school
created especially for Negroes.
Once again she renewed her fight
in the United States supreme court
for admission to the University of
Oklahoma law school which rejected
her because of her race.
3-Man Faculty
The university, which has not ac
cepted a Negro student in its 56-year
history, told Mrs. Fisher her applica
tion was approved except for her race.
It pointed out a three-man faculty
was ready to open law courses' for
Negroes only in the state capitol
building at Oklahoma City.
Dr. George L. Cross, president of
the University of Oklahoma, an
nounced Mrs. Fisher’s application
had been rejected because it conflict
ed with Oklahoma’s constitution
which provides separate schools for
whites and Negroes.
While Mrs. Fisher’s application was
being rejected, her attorneys in Wash
ington, D. C., filed a petition asking
the high court to order the university
to admit her.
Mrs. Fisher applied for enrollment
a week ago after the supreme court
had ordered Oklahoma to grant her
equal and immediate opportunities
with those of whites.
The law school for Negroes at Ok
lahoma City is set up as a branch of
Langston university, Oklahoma’s only
Negro school of higher education.
There were no applications for en
rollment Monday.
No Comment
Mrs. Fisher had no comment on
any proceedings. She said she did not
know whai she would do if she lost
her fight for admittance to the Uni
versity of Oklahoma. She said she
would not attend the Negro law
In the petition to the supreme
court, Mrs. Fisher’s attorneys pointed
out that “one student cannot consti
tute a law school.”
Also, the petition noted “it is com
pletely impossible to set up, within a
period of one week, a law school
which would offer adequate facilities
for the acquisition of the professional
skills necessary for the practice of

Chicago: Offering a formula which
will make decent roles for Negroes
possible in Hollywood movies, RKO
production chief Dore Schary says in
February Negro Digest that the movie
audienec is largely responsible for ra
cial stereotypes on the screen and ex
plains how he gets around this box
ofFice hazard.
“Racial stereotypes existed in vau
deville and show businesses long be
fore the movies came along,” Schary
writes in Negro Digest. “These of
fensive characters existed as far back
as Dickens—and even Shakespeare.
The audience accepts these stock
characters on the screen because they
exist in the audience’s minds.”
The recent war woke the audience
up t othe offensiveness of these char
acters .though, Schary continues, and
when they were written out of scripts,
producers discovered that they made
more money on these pictures.
“We found that when we offended
less people, more people paid to see
our pitcures.”
Citing the experience of “Cross
fire” his own movie on anti-semitism,
Schary says that not all theaters will
play this feature because it does
tackle the problem facing a minority.
But “Crossfire” was made on such a
low budget that it will still make big
money and as such will be successful.
Schary says the solution is a movie
made from an honest, intelligent piece
of material about the Negro that can
be made on a low enough budget to
allow it to get by at the box office.
With a few such films as this, audi
ences in general will demand that pic
tures reflect the world of today as we
all want it to be.

On Monday, February 2J, in Columbia,
Tennessee, a Negro youth struck a white
clerk of the United States Supreme Court,
store proprietor because of the propri
etor’s having slapped his mother. Subse
quently, State Highway Patrolman and
State National Guardsmen terrorized the
h Negro community by mauling, beating
j and shooting innoent Negro citizens and
I by wrecking their horns and busineess cs
tableshments. During this afrfay, a
| ewhite patrolman received a minor in

from a shotgun. For this, William pil
low and Loyd Kennedy were indicted for
assault and battery with intent to Commit
murder in the first degree. They were
tried in ehe circuit Court of Maury coun

low’s aquittal and Kennedy’s conviction
snd sentence to confinement for five (s)

SAACP lawyers appealed the case to the
supreme court of Tennessee in June, 1947.
In the petition before the Supreme Court

“Present Challenges to Democracy,”

Urban League at a luncheon on
Thursday, February 5, at the Castle
Mayor Humphrey has received na
tional recognition for his work as city
administrator and for founding the
Minnesota Polio Research Commis
sion. The program which he launched
in he field of Human Relations was
especially noteworthy. His Mayor’s
Council on Human Relations is now
engaged in a city-wide survey to
study intolerance, and to expose those
i areas of friction and misunderstand
ing so as to achieve the highest type
of human relations pattern.
On a national level Mayor Humph
rey headed the panel on housing and
from all walks of life in Maury County
had testified at the trial, which testimony
established that for more than fifty years
no Negro had ever jerved on a grand or
or petit jury in that County. The petition
stated further that in view of the fact
that the Country contained aproximately
9.000 white males over twenty-one and
3.000 Negro males over twenty-one, such
long-continued absence of Negroes from
juries established clearly the existance of
a custom and usage on the part of county
officials to systematically exclude Negroes
from juries solely because of race.
The petition pointed out further that
though some Negroes’ names appeared
on the panel, none had served on the
jury and in fact the names appearing on
the panel were placed there as the result
of a Conspiracy to accomplish exclusion
of Negroes and at the same time appear
to satisfy the requirements of the Supreme
Court as set forth in the Case of Eddie
(Buster) Patton v. State of Mississippi,
that Negroes not be excluded from juries
solely because of race.
