Robber Arrested
Jersey City, N. J. . . (CNS) . .

amateurishly conceived that the

Joseph Ashew, a 30 year old
Negro, tried his robbery at 10:00
a m. slipping a pencilled note and
a brown paper bag to 21 year old
Madeline Miller, teller. The note
said: "This is a stick up: Please
put all the bills in the bag. One
false move and I'll blow your
brains out. Do what this note says
and you’ll enjoy a very merry
Christmas and a happy New
Year.” *
Unmoved by the note. Miss
Miller handed it hack to him calm
ly. Ashew was completely off
guard by this, lost his nerve and
headed for the door. Two blocks
away with the bank guard and
others in pursuit, one pedestrian
seeing the trouble yelled out:
“Stop or I’ll shoot.” That was
all, for Ashew stopped and was
booked for attempted robbery.

Negroes Get
Federal Jobs
Washington, — A Presidential
committee reported Tuesday that
Negroes make up 3.4 per cent of
the Federal employees in five ma
jor cities, including this one.
Chairman Maxwell Abbell of
President Eisenhower’s Commit
tee on Government Employment
Policy said the survey turned up
two findings which he termed of
particular significance.
"The first is that Negroes are
employed by the Federal Govern
'ment well above their ratio to the
total population,” Mr. Abbell said.
“The second is that Negroes are
by no means confined either to
the menial jobs of the Government
or to the lower grades in the Civ
il Service Classification Act.’’
The ratio of Negroes to the to
tal United States poppulation Is
about 11 per cent.
Besides the capital, cities cov
ered by the survey were Chicago.
St. Louis, Los Angeles, and Mo
bile, Alabama.
On North
Chicago — — The fabulous Har
lem Globetrotters basketball team
could conceivably run smack into
Santa Claus next week.
The old cherub with the white
whiskers will be heading south
ward from the far north for his
annual Christmas visit while Abe
Saperstein’s happy cagers will be
up in the territory where he
makes his first stops — South
Sakata, Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Meantime, basketball fans in
those states arc in for a real pre
holiday treat. The Trotters led
by Capt. Clarence Wilson are
rolling merrily along, winning
game after game, and putting on
some of the most hilarious "floor
shows” ever seen in the history of
the game.
Top entertainer of this year's
production is, of course, Meadow
lark Lemon, the greatest rib
tickler in basketball today. The
fans up in the frigid northland
are sure to warm up to this rol
licking court jester, who' also
plays a skilled game. For ex
ample, after a recent appearance
in New York’s Madison Square
Garden, a sportswriter in the big
city wrote:
’‘Meadowlark had the fans in
the Garden rolling in the aisles
last night, and, also, had the op
position daffy with his great as
sortment of shots from the pivot.
It has been a long time since cage
customers here in New York have
seen the likes of him.”
This new cage wizard will be
seen next week with the Globe
trotters in the following cities:
December 14, Huron, South Da
kota; 15, Sioux City, Iowa; 16, Des
Moines, Iowa; 17, Waterloo, Iowa;
