Make Room In Your Heart
Christmas is almost here. Prayers and carols, tinsel and parties,
mingle to express our joy. And the golden threads in the tapestry of
celebration are our efforts to help the needy, in iur own community
and in the larger community of the world.
But how do you measure the degrees of world need? How do
you decide who can be helped and who must be turned away? Because
of widespread hunger, CARE launched its 1956 holiday season Food
Crusade to distribute 5 million $1 packages of U. S. farm surplus, to
help feed 20 million people in 19 countries. Then came the Hungarian
crisis. Swiftly, CARE organized a $2,000,000 emergency drive for
the victims in Hungary and the refugees fleeing to Austria.
We believe, with CARE, that America’s heart is big enough to
help both the Hungarian people and the victims of war, tyranny and
poverty in other lands. Every $1 to the Food Crusade sends a 22-lb.
package, in your name, to help feed four persons for one month.
Recipients include refugees in South Korea, Vietnam, Hong Kong,
West Berlin and Germany; needy families from Italy to Panama For
Hungarian relief, CARE delivers $10 standard food packages; $5 "Wel
come Kits" of toilet articles; $4 blankets, and variously priced clothing
and other supplies purchased as needed.
Make room in your heart, right now. Mail your'Christmas dona
tion for the Food Crusade, or Hungarian relief (or both, if you can
afford it) to CARE, 660 First Ave., New York 16. N.Y.

NEW YORK. N. Y. — Calling the guarantee of full civil rights
for every American the “number one civil liberties issue before the
nation,” the American Civil Liberties Union announced today a major
organizational effort in the South to provide new support for the na
tional campaign to eliminate discrimination.
The Union’s decision was disclosed in a statement commemorating
the 165th celebration of Bill of Rigfeu Day, the annivesary of the final
adoption of the first ten amendments to the Constitution. The state
ment was released by Patrick Murphy Malin, ACLU executive director.
Malin declared that the focus of the ACLU effort would be to
build a larger corps of volunteer lawyers who would be available
promptly to handle all kinds of civil liberties cases for all groups in
the community. Special attention also will be given to establishing
new ACLU units in Southern states and localities. The immediate ob
jectives, he said, are North Carolina and Texas, where interest in AC
LU activity is mounting. The Union in the last year and one-half has
established affiliates in Lousiana, Kentucky and Florida.
“While many civil rights advances continue to be made in the
South,” Malin said, “the opposition to the Supreme Court’s decisions
has caused serious civil liberties problems. The denial of voting
rights in the last election to large numbers of Negroes and the barriers
set up to block the work of the National Association of Colored People
and the Urban League mean that the First Amendment rights of free
speech and association are threatened.”
As a result of these attacks, the ACLU head said, there is need
for other groups to build local organizations which will stress the full
observance of the Bill of Rights. As local violations of civil liberties
occur, he said, ACLU volunteer lawyers on the scene will be available
to give legal aid as needed.
"Our effort will not be a Northern-imposed campaign," Malin con
tinued. “There are great numbers of people within the South itself
who want to uphold the Bill of Rights Some of them have asked our
organizational aid, and we are responding to this need.”
Nor does the emphasis on Southern organization mean that other
areas of the couutry have clean records, Malin said. “Segregation and
discrimination are still national problems. They exist in the North,
East and West, too, and must be equally opposed there.” Malin said
that the ACLU’S twenty-three affiliates are working actively to help
achieve integration.
The civil liberties spokesman also called attention to the need
for quick Congressional action on two fronts. One is to revise Senate
Rule 22, which now serves to allow any minority bloc to filibuster ob
jectionable legislation to death. “The refusal of a Senate minority to
permit important'civil rights legislation to come to a vote is a thwart
ing of the democratic process of free decision after adequate debate.
We hope and urge that Senators will join the effort being planned
to change this obstructionist rule when the new Senate convenes on
January 3.”
The other major and immediate need in Congress is for legislation
aiding refugees of the Hungarian revolution who are seeking political
asylum in the United States, the ACLU asserted.
“Congress should act swiftly to provide statutory authority for
the admirable emergency action in bringing 21,000 refugees to our
country. On the basis of experience at the refugee centers in Austria,
Congress should consider if speedier means of processing these un
fortunate victims of Communist tyranny can be found. And Congress
should also consider whether the Refugee Relief Act, which expires
at the end of this month, should be extended to deal with the press
ing need to give these refugees a haven.”
The Hungarian tragedy, Malin said, makes dramatically clear the
need for general revision of American immigration laws, particularly
the need to eliminate discriminatory barrier based on national origin
and to provide speedier entry through careful removal of unnecessary
security investigations.

the most curvaceous, luscious
brownkin maid you've seen —

to the specialty class of Eartha

paring her to Abba Lane . . Anoth
er says she’s the sepia Marilyn

describe her, she’s got the mostest
as far as sex goes. That’s why
she's already rated as one of the
hottest new talents around. Her
name? Sallie Blair. Such an old

Angeles and Hollywood have gone
absolutely nuts about her. Said
the owner of the nightclub where
she made her debut: “Most ex

in the next fifteen, there's Harry

Something new and different appeared in the Lyons Mirror

in that vicinity.

The Wahoo Newspaper announced last week that a persistent

The Omaha Cold Storage food processing plant, which was
closed a number of months ago at West Point, is to be re-opened
under new ownership and management, according to the West
Point Republican. The plant has been sold to George Wimmer
and sons of Snyder, Nebraska who plan extensive remodeling and
re-equipping. The plant will get back into business about the
middle of 1957.

At Pawnee City, the best Christmas present of all is about
ready, the Republican revealed. A new city well and -8-mile pipe
line, is about completed and Pawnee City will have ample water
for the first time in many months early in January. Pawnee City’s
water situation reached the point of virtual desperation during
the summer, with strict limitations placed on all but the most
essential of water uses. No water could be obtained at the town
site and drillers finally went 8 miles out of town to get water. A
10-inch line, costing over $100,000 had to be laid to connect the
new well with the city water system.

A similar situation has developed at Fairbury and city officials
have learned that a line two miles long must be laid out into the
country to get a well of sufficient size to help the city. The Fair
bury Journal forewarned its readers last week that an impending
bond issue would be necessary to pay for the needed improvement.
Doyle H. Graham, resident engineer for the Nebraska Mid
atate Reclamation District, has revealed that the ground level of
water in the pump-irrigation districts around Central City, is at a
new low. 165 wells were tested by the engineer, all confirming
the fact that ground water is much harder to get than heretofore.
Heavy pumping plus the shortage resulting from a rainfall
derth, is responsible, it is stated. Some wells show a water level
drop of as much as 20 feet, according to the Central City Repub

Dakota City is laying claim to the title of the “Tallest Com
munity Christmas Tree" in northeast Nebraska, according to an
article -in last week’s Dakota County Star. The tree is 25 feet
tall. The big spruce was cut from the Dakota City cemetery where
some clearing of trees has been going on. 180 colored lights
have been placed on the trte, the lights turning on and off with
the city’s street lights.
