WARN DIXIE DISTRIBUTORS
ROY WILKINS URGES ESSO
New York,—Roy Wilkins, ex
ecutive secretary of the National
Association for the Advancement
of Colored People, has written
the ESSO Standard Oil Company
urging the company to make a
survey of its southern territory
“in an effort to discover whether
or not your employers are par
ticipating” in campaigns of eco
nomic reprisals against Negroes
who demand civil rights and an
end to public school segregation.
Previously, the NAACP execu
tive Jiad written to the company
about efforts of an area distribu
tor in Orangeburg, S. C., to have
the franchise of the Sulton Broth
ers, a Negno-owned ESSO station,
revoked because they had signed
a petition to the Orangeburg
school board asking^ for desegre
gation of the schools.
Informed by J. A. Miller, gen
eral manager of ESSO’s market
ing department, that the Sulton
Brothers art served directly by
the company and not through an
area distributor, Mr. Wilkins re
sponded that “it does not allay
our concern over the attitude re
ported to be exhibited by your
a it a distributor, or the possibility
that other ESSO area distribu
tors in other sections of the South
may be engaging in activities af
fecting -Negro filling station op
erators who are not served on a
direct basis but must depend on
“It is inconceivable to us that
the ESSO Standard Oil Company
would tolenate for one moment
this type of activity,” the letter
concluded, “and therefore we
urge that an appropriate mem
orandum on company policy be
sent to the sensitive areas.”
“KENTUCKIAN” STAYS 2ND
WEEK AT STATE
Burt Lancaster has done a fine
thing in his debut as a motion
picture director with “THE KEN
TUCKIAN,” iCinemaScope Tech
nicolor printed film which con
tinues for a second week at the
State Theatre through United
Artists release. He has taken
a(n action-packed, swashbuckling
fragment of frontier history and
infused it with a warm, rich story
and peopled it with lovable char
acters. Lancaster himself stars
in the film as Big Eli, a hunter
who with his son, Little Eli,
finds Kentucky too confined and
tame for him, and heads for Tex
as—“where a man has room to
Lancaster’s feminine co-stars
are two extremely attractive
young women of different types.
The rather demure, conservative
schoolteacher of a small frontier
town is played by Diana Lynn.
She falls in love with Lancaster
but realizes it would be cruel to
tie him down and so loses him to
the more wild, impulsive back
woods’ girt, played by Dianne
Foster, whose nature and inter
ests are similar to Eli’s.
Ten year old Donald Mac Don
ald, who plays the appealing role
of Lancaster’s motherless son,
turns in a performance that will
endear him to all audiences. Oth
er prominent ahtors in the cast,
all of whom do splendid charac
terizations, include Walter Mat
thau, John Mclntire, Una Merk
el, John Carradine and John Litel.
