A Tale Of Two Cities
The steady progress made in eliminating Jim Crow from our na
tional life is a matter of record. We are beginning to accept and en
joy not only working together as Americans—whatever our race, re
ligion or color may be—but also to live together as neighbors and citi
zens, making our communities friendly and demoncratic.
A case in point is the experience of a Negro family that moved in
to a white neighborhood in Teaneck, New Jersey. Usually, in such a
situation, selfish real estate operators try to create a hysteria in order
to get the white home owners to sell their homes cheap. Later, these
same homes are resold to Negro buyers at exorbitant prices.
To their everlasting credit, the people of Teaneck were too decent
to fall into this trap. Instead of deserting the community, they put
out signs, “This house is not for sale.”
Very little publicity was given to the Teaneck story because the
idea that we can all live together as friends and neighbors is well on
the way to finding general acceptance. What does make the headlines
are those few unfortunate incidents where prejudice does prevail.
That brings us to the recent house-hunting troubles of Dr. Sam
Lee. Dr. Lee is one of the most prominent young men in America.
For several years in succession he brought prestige to American
sports as a champion swimmer. He also succeeded in becoming a doc
tor. As such, he chose to make his services available to our military
forces and served 13 years in the Army. Recently he completed a
goodwill tour of the Far East, demonstrating in his own person that
a man is judged solely on his merits. Dr. Lee, who is of Korean ori
gin, is truly a credit to America.
Recently Dr. Lee tried to buy a house in Garden Grove, a housing
development in Santa Ana, California. He didn’t succeed because
he is not white. Dr. Lee responded to the situation with his character
istic sportsmanship saying: “It doesn’t brother me but it hurts my
country.” We are certain every decent American has been revolted by
The damage is unqestionably greater than that. There will hard
ly be a newspaper in Asia that will not make the most of it. The
enemies of America will exploit it to the full order to reinforce their
claim that America professes democratic ideals but fails to practice
them. And we can be certain that the Communist press of the world
will feature the troubles of Dr. Lee, neglecting to say a word about
But the freedom-loving people everywhere are bound to learn that
what happened in Teaneck is more representative of American life
and take heart. To the people of Teaneck and similar communities
throughout the country, America owes its respect and admiration. A
merica also hopes that the people of Santa Ana, California, will has
ten to catch up with the rest of us. —JLC Labor Reports
Senator Hails Progress In Human Rights
Discrimination, bigotry, and prejudice are “on the retreat”,
Senator Hubert H. Humphrey (D. Minn.) declared last week in a mess
age to the National Urban League Convention.
What is now needed, he added, “is the mobilization of public senti
ment to call upon Congress as well as the State Legislatures to do their
Text of Senator Humphrey’s letter to Lester Granger, Executive
Director of the Urban League, follows:
“Dear Mr. Granger:
I wish to join with my friends and fellow members of the Urban
League in commending this Annual Convention on the outstanding
work it has been accomplishing during the past year.
The Urban League represents and symbolizes the practical appli
cation of the principles of equality and social justice. The work of the
Urban League has contributed immeasurably to the strength of our na
tion and to the well being of thousands of individuals.
The many Urban League organizations througout the nation have
provided a means by which the people who believe in fair and equal
treatment for all, regardless of color, creed, or national origin have
been able to work together.
The Urban League in all its many activities plays an important role
in the development of community life throughout our country. It has
enriched and strengthened our nation greatly. It has set a high stand
ard of performance in the field of human relations. It has struck a
mighty blow against racial prejudice. It has demonstrated beyond a
shadow of a doubt that Fair Employment Practices are more than
political and academic issues.
There are many of us who believe that the Congress and the offici
als of government should act effectively in behalf of an over all Civil
Rights program. As a member of the United States Senate I have
consistently sponsored a number of bills that would carry out the over
all recommendation of the President’s Commission on Civil Rights.
You will recall that report was made in 1948. Regretfully the Congress
of the United States has refused to take action. However, many state
and local governments have steadily moved ahead to carry out those
recommendations at the community and state levels. We are making
progress—yes, substantial progress in the field of civil rights and
Thousands of organizations have revised their .by-laws and prac
tices to afford equal treatment to all. Discrimination, bigotry, and
prejudice are on the retreat. These advances indicate the acceptance
of the objectives of a civil rights program.
What is now needed is the mobilization of public sentiment to
call upon Congress as well as the state legislature to do their part.
I wish to assure you that I shall not cease in my efforts. I shall
continue to press the issue of civil rights in the Congress. I have
consistently done this during the past six years. We must call upon
both Democrats and Republicans and their leaders to fulfill their party
It has been my priviledge to work with the executive agencies of
government in implementing fair employment practices in govern
ment agencies. We have made substantial progress in that area, par
ticularly in the armed services and most recently in the Civil Service.
The weakness lies in the legislative field and it is here the people’s
voice can be most effective.
Again, my sincere congratulations on the good work undertaken
and accomplished by the Urban League. You deserve the commenda
tion of all.”

Chicago, III. (CNS) The newly
crowned champions of the National
League—the Brooklyn Dodgers—
say they aren’t particular as to
who wins in the American League
just as long as somebody does it.
But still they do have favorites.
And they are based on money—
dollars— nothing else.
The Indians offer the biggest
stadium—so the Dodgers are really
rooting for the Indians with their
73,000 seating capacity. For take
home pay you can’t beat a Dodger
Indian Series. Even the loser gets
more than a winner would in an
other park—namely $7,000. The
winner would keep $11,000—at
least that’s what the Giants did
Sentimentally the Dodgers are
hoping the Yankees would do it so
as to give them another chance at
the team that has frustrated them
most in six World Series. This
time they do believe they could
catch them with ease.
18 POINT GUIDE
BY HEARING SCHOOL
Most ailments affect only
one person. But a hearing de
ficiency, because it makes you
lose your most important source
of communication, makes others
suffer as well.
However, Omaha area children
of pre-school age have the op
porunity to overcome their hear
ing loss .
The Omaha Hearing School,
which is non-profit and non-sec
tarian, trains deaf and hard- of
tiearing youngsters 2 to 5. years
of age. The pupils learn to read
ips and speak, said Mrs. E. J.
Dunningar, teacher in charge.
Since the state does not pro
vide for training of the children
of pre-school age, the youths
nust rely on public help. To
:arry the Hearing School through
ts fourth year, 12 thousand!
iollars is needed. The current
und drive will close September
17th. Send contributions to
Hearing School, Box 992, Omaha.
