$2000 Check
To Negro
College Fund
The United Negro College Fhnd
received a $2,000 contribution for
its current campaign from the In-1
temational Paper Company
Foundation, W. J. Trent, Jr.,
UNiCF executive director announc
ed last week.
The Foundation, which was
established in 1952 for charitable
and educational purposes by the
International Paper Company,
made its initial contribution to
the United Negro College Fund
last year with a $10,000 grant for
building purposes and $2,000 for
current operating expenses.
In presenting the $2,000 check
for the Fund’s 1955 campaign, W.
A. Hanway, president of the paper
company Foundation, said trat the
UNCF appeal offered an effective
means of contributing directly to
greater educational opportunities
for Negro youth, and that it was
pleasure to be able to give “con
tinuing support to this important
work.” Nine of the International
Paper Company’s mills are situ
ated in the South where the Fund’s
member colleges are located.
The United Negro .College Fund
is currently conducting its 12th,
annual, nation-wide campaign in
support of the operating budgets
of its 31 member colleges. The
money raised is used by the colleg
es for student scholarship aid,
teaching epuipment for classrooms
and science laboratories and other
yearly expenses.
Of Teachers
The International Union of
Electrical, Radio and Machin ^
Workers, CIO, last week demand
ed that Attorney General Brown
ell and the Federal Bureau of In
vestigation immediately investi
gate the Georgia State Board of
Education, which has orderel tint
Georgia teachers who are mem
bers of the National Association
for the Advancement of Colored
People to quit NAACP or have
their teaching licenses revoked
for life.
A1 Hartnett, Secretary-Treas
urer of IUE-CIO and chairman of
its Civil Rights Committee, de
nounced the action of the Georgia
Board as un-American and as an
out-right attempt to flout the au
thority of the Supreme Court in
its recent unanimous decision
against school segregation.
Harnett declared that Brownell
and the FBI’ should act at once to
protect the sacred right of Ameri
cans. There is no room in this
country for those who flout civil
liberties,” he said.
“While the Georgia Board is at
tacking an outstanding American
organization such as NAACP, I
am sure that the board is winking
at membership of some white
teachers in the subversive Associ
ation for the Advancement of
White People, which is devoted to
lawlessness in regards to the
court decision, and at membership
in the present-day version of the
Ku Klux Klan, an anti-Negro,
anti-Catholic and anti-Semitic
outfit which has been disowned
by every right-thinking American
of all religions and which has been
on the Attorney General’s Sub
versive organizations list since
that list was started.
“Brownell is obligated to see
to it that the KKK does not again
raise its head.
In Georgia, the spirit of the
KKK rules the State Board of
Education, which seeks to deprive
negro teachers of their inalien
able rights to belong to an organ
ization which fights to preserve
the ideals of our Constitution.”

A Belated Salute To Yellow Cab Co.
With the demanding need of Fair Employment Practices in Oma
ha, we think this is an opportune time to point up a situation preg
nant with meaning.
In our community we have merchants and businessmen who
would retard progress by their bigtory, lame excuses, and completely
unfair employment practices.
In comparison, the Yellow Cab Co., which is by no means an im
mediate member of the community, has been one of the first to prac
tice fair employment in Omaha.
Amidst great furore and abuse, Mr. J. F. Daly, vice president of
Yellow Cab bf Omaha, refused to yield to the bigots and false
propagandists who would delay progress.
However, this is not the first time Mr. Daly has given a hand
to progress—for many years he has contributed greatly and without
clamor to the general welfare of GREATER Omaha.
Mr. Daly says “Xellow Cab” will continue to hire on merit and
he will soon make available situations in all departments.
We personally salute you (YELLOW CAB CO.) for the cour
ageous, intelligent progressive stand you have taken and we know the
general public will support and applaud this stand for democracy.
New Legion
Officers Now
Theodore Roosevelt Post No.
30 American Legion at this issue
will have had its annual installa
tion of the elected officers. Pre
vious preparations for this af
fair was the best that the Post
could hope to have, including any
previous affair of the same order.
Great things should and are
bound to happen. Regardless of
the very hot weather the Post
continues to progress and new
and old members in increasing
numbers come into the Legion
It is the firm expressed resolu
tion of each elected officer to do
their very best to keep the Post
at its highest peak. Notice of
the passing of Comrade Thomas
L. Moore of 2606 No. 21st was re
ceived with sympathetic regrets.
The Legion will serve at last
rites at Cleve Temple Methodist
Church. We have sick comrades
in V. A. Hospital—Willie Bell,
Ralph Underwood, and Paul
Adams. Send the sick a card or
do the better service by making
them a personal visit.
The Ladies Auxiliary, under
the capable leadership of Mrs.
Emory Hickman is progressing
very nicely. The attention of
both Legionnaires and Auxiliary
members is called to the coming
membership drive right after the
installation of officers and please
stress this effort with all your
might. It is the honest summa
tion of all things that makes us
great, our service and loyalty to
God, our Country and our fellow

Brooklyn, N. Y.—Sandy Amor

I wearing a corset-support and
though he can play, New York has
been plagued with torrents of
rain leaving the field in a muddy
state. So Manager Alston says
this: “I’d kinda like to get him in
there for a game or two and see
how he reacts. But if the field is
muddy, I won’t play him or Rob
inson. Before his back acted up,
Sandy was Brooklyn’s leading

Ails Man's
Constant Foe
Upper respiratory infections —
suuch as influenza, pneumonia,
grippe and bronchitis — are
man’s most persistent foe.
After studying nearly 500,000
cases in its files, Mutual of O
maha, the largest exclusive
health and accident insurance
company in the world, found that
upper respiratory infections caus
ed nearly 20 per cent of all dis
abilities reported among men.
Ulcers and stomach or intes
tinal trouble ranked next, caus
ing 6% per cent of all disabilities.
General health reasons were
responsible for disabling one of
every four men covered by the
survey. Disorders of the diges
tive and circulatory systems to
gether caused nearly one-fourth
of all cases.
More than one of every eight
disabilities was the result of a
fracture, dislocation or sprain.
Ribs were the most frequently
fractured bones.
Since Mutual of Omaha does
business in every state, the sur
vey covered the entire nation.
New York—When Georgia act
ed to fire teachers who belong
to the NAACP it did not know it
was helping the Association to
get more memberships, but as
soon as he read the news a physi
cian sent in a $500 life member
“He said he was angry and
wanted to help,” said Roy Wil
kins, NAACP executive secre
tary. “We can use all the help
we can get because the Associa
tion is under direct attack by
highest state officials in Vir
ginia, North Carolina, Alabama,
Georgia, Mississippi and Louisi
“After Governor Hodges of
North Carolina attacked us in his
speech August 8, we received a;
rush order for 1,000 membership
cards from that state.
“The rest of the country can!
give a most effective answer to
Georgia and the other states by
sending memberships and con
tributions to the NAACP. People |
who get angry should take it out!
in money, $5.00 to $500 and notj
in cussing. Cussing doesn’t help
the Dixie situation. Only action!
backed by money can help.”
Checks from individuals, j
churches and other organizations
can be mailed to NAACP head
quarters, 20 West 40th Street,
New York 18, N. Y.
Catholics Urged
New York.—A Catholic Priest
here has urged all Catholics to
jo;n the NAACP as a means of
bringing about racial justice.
Speaking before the Catholic
Interracial Forum, the Rev. Arch
ibald V. McLees said Catholics
should join the N AACP for two
reasons. ,
“In the first place.” he pointed
out, “we Catholics have for long
years known what bigotry means,
we faced it, and we had to fight
it. Therefore, we should realize
the need for helping those who are
being oppressed at the present
time by bigotry.”
“Secondly, the NAACP platform
is one that Catholics can support
The goal of the Association,'
Mr. McLees noted, is to “achieve
complete freedom for Negroes by
1963,” the centennial of the
Emancipation Proclamation.
Mr. McLees, pastor of Holy
Rosary Parish in Brooklyn, is a
life member of the NAACP and
vice president of the Brooklyn
NAACP branch. He spoke on
August 5.
Agencies To
Try New Idea
This Fall
Something new in fund raising
will be tried this fall in Omaha.
The Red Cross and Red Feather
Agencies have combined forces
in attempt to have just one big
fund raising campaign.
In a letter from Mr. Lloyd H.
Mattson, chairman of the United
Red Feather and Red Cross Cam
paign, to Omahans, it was stated
that the merger would prevent 17
separate fund raising drives.
/' total sum of $3,323,149 has

White Sox
Look To The
Fans At Home
iChicago, 111.— In the American
League’s tightest pennant race in
years, the Chicago White Sox
are looking to the fans at home
to help the team down the stretch.
Manager Marty Marion recalls
that a lot of his players are sen
sitive to criticism as Minnie Min
oso who gets down when booed
and Chico Carasquel. “I know
we haven’t done any better at
home than we have on the road,
but I think the cheering of the

should help.” Marion is hoping
the team arrives home in as good
shape as it is now — game out

New York — A southern city
with a quarter-of-a-million popu
lation this week announced plans
for immediate school desegrega
tion, as communities in several
southern states which had await
ed the second Supreme Court
school decision before acting,
continued to comply. The an
nouncement of the Oklahoma
City school board brought to a
total of at least 34 those Okla
homa communities which have is
sued school desegregation plans.
A policy statement adopted by
the Oklahoma City school board
declared in part:
“The board of education aa
the sympathetic cooperation anv
patience of our citizens in its
compliance with the law and
making the changes that are
necessary and advisable.”
This week’s spot check of the
southern school situation by the
NAACP showed two additional
Oklahoma towns whose desegre
gation plans have become known
since last week’s check. They
are Muskogee and Red Rock.
In Arkansas, North Little Rock
became the sixth community in
that state to declare an end to
school segregation.
Amarillo, Texas, joined a grow
ing number of Texas towns and
cities which have announced
desegregation plans for their
schools. Others which came to
light in this week’s survey are
Edinburg, Karnes County, Har
lingen, Weslaco, Mission, Kerr
ville, Alpine and Nordheim. The
total number of Texas com
munities which have announced
desegregation plans stands now
at about 16.
Meanwhile, the Alabama state
legislature passed a school “place
ment bill” which has as its ad
mitted purpose the maintenance
of segregated schools in that
The bill, which became law on
August 2 without the signature
of the governor due to the tim
ing of its passage, gives to city
and county boards of education
the police power to “assure social
order, goodwill and the public
welfare” in assigning pupils to
elementary and secondary
Each child is to be assigned to
a school on an individual basis
after consideration of some dozen
factors in his case.
These factors include “the ef
fect of admission of the pupil up
on the academic progress of
ether students,” “the possibility
or threat of friction or disorder
among pupils or others,” and
“the possibility of breaches of the
peace or ill will or economic re
taliation within the community.”
Savings Bond
Sales of U. S. Savings Bonds
are hitting a steady pace in Ne
braska, according to an announce
ment last week showing that
$6,439,255 worth of E and H
savings bonds were purchased in
the state during July.
Compared with a year ago, the
gain was 10%, with 1952, 41%
and with 1951, 86%. July sales
bring the year’s total E and H
bond sales to $67,957,886 which
represents 59.9% of the year’s
' goal.
The sales figures were an
nounced by Glenn Cunningham,
State Sales Director for the Treas
ury Department’s Savings Bond
Division. He said that savings
bonds, together with life insur
ance and savings deposits are re
cognized as the cornerstone of
any personal program to protect
a family’s future.
