into action and came up with a rattling noise which frightened
the boy. He called his father and the “stick” turned out to be a
rattle snake bearing nine rattlers. They put an end to the rattler.
The Times-Tribune at Beaver City reported the unusual incident.

Floridian Joins
Calverts' "Men
Of Distinction"
Mr. Henry H. Arrington, of Mi
ami, the son of a retired New York
detective, and now one of Florida’s
most prominent criminal lawyers
has been chosen to appear in the
famous Lord Calvert “Men of Dis
tinction” advertising, it was an
nounced this week by Tubie Res
nik, Executive Vice-President of
Calvert Distillers Company.
Born in Tampa, Florida, as a
youth he worked on the Tampa
docks during high school vaca
tions. Later, he entered Tuskegee
where he earned a degree in plum
bing and steam fitting.
After a stint at plumbing con
struction work at the U. S. Air
Force base outside Washington
D. C., Mr. Arrington decided he
was kind of “clumsy with my
hands, always dropping my tools.”
Taking his savings as a plumber,
he entered Howard University
Law School a few years later,
he headed up the legal section of
the War Claims Commission, in
1951 he was appointed a trial at
torney with the Criminal Division
of the Justice Department.
Recently, he opened his own of
fice in Miami, Florida. Now he
is one of the most prominent Ne
gro lawyers in the state with a
record of having won over 80%
of his criminal cases. ,
As Chairman of the legal re
dress committee, Miami N.A.AjC.P
he handles many civil rights cases
without fee.
“He is an inspiration to young
er men entering the legal profes
sion,” said Mr. Resnik of Calvert.
“Mr. Arrington is indeed a new
friend of Lord Calvert and a Man
of Distinction.”
New York — The National As
sociation for the Advancement of
Colored People today urged the
U. S. Department of Justice to in
vestigate a murder which occurred
in Mississippi on August 13 to de
termine whether the Negro victim
was shot “as a result of a con
spiracy against his exercise of the
right to vote.”
The request was embodied in a
letter dispatched to Attorney Gen
eral Herbert Brownell, and sign
ed by Thurgood Marshall, NAACP
special counsel.
An NAACP investigation of the
killing has disclosed that the mur
dered man, Lamar Smith of Casey
ville, Miss., “had received several
threats on his life if he did not
slow down on his political activi
ties,” the letter relates.
Mr. Smith “had been very active
in the political circles of Lincoln j
County,” the message points out.
He was a registered voter and ex
ercised his voting rights in the
Mississippi August 2 primary.
me leter says that Mr. Smith
“was shot Saturday morning, Aug.
13... .on the Court House lawn of
the Lincoln County site, and in
spite of the large number of per
sons who normally congregate
there on every Saturday, the offici
als have not been able to locate
one person who saw the incident.”
Today’s leter was the latest in a
series of requests on the part of
the ‘NAACP for federal action on
a worsening racial situation in
Mississippi. That state has been
described by Association officials
in recent months as “a jungle of
race hatred and terror.”
Federal action regarding Miss
issippi first was requested by the
NAACP in May after a Negro mini
ster in Belzoni, Mississippi, was
shot and killed following a warn
ing to remove his name from the
list of registered voters. This he
refused to do.
The Association again asked for
federal intervention in the Missis
sippi situation earlier this month
when three Negro residents of
Lowndes County received death
threats through the mail contain
ing the phrase, “If you are tired of
living, vote and die.”

Blast Critic
The Administrations security
program came in for a scorching
criticism by Pres, elect James B.
Cobb of the National Alliance of
Postal Employees.
He said, addressing the Execu
tive Board in the closing stages of
the organizations biennial conven
tion, “The brutal cynicism drip
ping from White House aide Sher
man Adams blast of former Sen.
Harry P. Cain clearly points up
the attitude of the Administration
in its conduct of the program.”
Pointing to the report in the In
dianapolis Star of Friday 19th, he
read the comment attributed to
White House Sec. Adams. The
comment “to hell with the merits
of the criticism (of the security
program by Cain”) was hteharsh

A week long meeting found the
postal delegates hammering out a
program of action for the next
two years. In seminars directed
to the problems of Grievance pro
cedure, finance and membership.
The men and women explored and
analyzed the issues. Visual aid
material further clarified matters
under discussion.
Remembering its history of the
fight for justice in the postal ser
vice, the organization journeyed
to the grave site of the Late R. L.
Bailey of Indianapolis, Indiana. Mr.
Bailey was a charter member and
its first legal aide.
The convention took serious
note of the remaining areas of
descrimination in the postal ser
vice. Particular concern was ex
pressed over the iron curtain,
which for 181 years has draped a
round the inspection service.
Swiftly moving events in the area
of equality of opportunity empha

he reminded the White House that

its determination to rescue these
men and their families from the

have gained the upper hand in
their fight against juvenile hood

that there is too much leniency.

the far greater use of cars by

more difficult here.

Snider Is

Brooklyn, N. Y. (CNS) Call it
an odd turnabout if you will—but
when the Giant fans boode Willie
Mays so vociferously this week for
failing to pick up the ball after
Duke’ Snider’s single had gotten
through his legs and two runs
scored—it was Duke Snider who
came to the rescue of Willie.
A centerfield himself of no
mean ability, the Dodgers’ Duke
can’t understand all the fuss both
newspapers and fans are making
over Willie—even to the extent of
berating the Wonder Boy for be
ing a Prima Donna.
Said Snider: “What are they
getting on Willie for? Sometimes
it doesn’t pay to be able to do all
the things he can do. They ex
pect you to perform miracles
every day. Willie does a lot of
great things over there. And
what about his explanation? He
said he saw Mueller going after
the ball and Mueller was closer to
it. Isn’t that enough?”
