A Letter to the Editor
Dear Editor: ___ _____
“* There seems to be a wave of propaganda sweeping the country,
aiming to discredit Mr. Eisenhower’s interest in the Negroes’ struggle
for first-class citizenship. One reads and hears such slogans as: “Throw
ing bread at the Hungarians and bombs at the Negroes”, “They (the
Negroes) must think that they are Hungarians” in asking for con
sideration from the President, etc., etc. It is strange, indeed, that
such contemptuous terms would be hurled at the President in the face
of the fact that under his Administration more substantial progress
in the area of civil rights has been made in four years than in all the
years since the enactment of the 14th Amendment.
The President has made it crystal clear that he intends to crusade
against second-class citizenship, not only in America but through-out
the world. Those who have not heard this from his own lips need
only to read his civil rights proposals to Congress. And those who do
not take time to read need only to look about themselves and see the
already tangible results of this great crusade.
It is regretable that the President's interest in the wholesale
slaughtering of the freedom-seeking Hungarians, the Middle East
Crisis, and the drought-stricken areas of our country is interpreted, by
any one, to mean that he is not interested in the welfare of the Ne
groes in the South. (A strange sort of sectional isolationism in the
midst of a rapidly growing world-mindedness.) By comparison, the
struggle and sufferings of either the Hungarians or the farmers in the
drought-stricken areas, would make the struggle and sufferings of the
Negro in the South seem less significant than they really are. But, to
keep the records straight, the President t did send the Vice President
into the South and other parts of the country, as head of a committee,
to study and report on the unjust treatment of the Negro, long before
sending him to study and report on the conditions of the Hungarians.
These recent "demands" for the President to “speak out against
the outbreaks of violence in the South” sound like soldiers on the fir
ing line telling the general how to win the war. The President has
long since spoken out, in his own way, in no uncertain terms. It is
the effectiveness of his strategy that has resulted in these sporatic
out-bursts of violence. They merely represent the pains of the birth
of freedom for the Negro from the womb of white supremacy. And,
the operations of the Department of Justice and the federal courts
will be far more effective and listing in soothing these pains than
the audible voice of the President
And suppose the Vice President were sent into the South to take
note of the progress being made in this crusade against segregation.
What would be his report, He would probably find a half dozen or
more situations where integration is proceeding without incident to
every one where there are acts of violence. He would find the Negro
as a whole enjoying a greater degree of prosperity and freedom than
ever before in the history of the nation. And to our lasting shame, he
would find Negroes spending by far more money to support segregated
places of amusement than they are spending to support the NAACP and
other agencies working to break down segregation.
And so, why all of this criticism of the Administration, with so
much to be done on our part, and yet with the signs of victory already
clearly written across the sky? Is it propaganda, or grandstand play?

Whither Senator Knowiand?
There is little doubt that California's senior senator, William
Knowiand, would be re-elected again in 1958 if he chose to run. He
polled one of the highest (if not the highest) votes in 1952 that any
candidate ever received in the United States other than for the presi
dency. There is no indication that his popularity has dwindled ap
preciably in the meantime, if at all.
But the senator says he will not run again. And thereby he has
set off a political re action that will enliven both the Republican and
Democratic camps for the next 22 months.
Knowiand says he wants to return to Oakland and devote his
attention to his newspaper interests. But many political observers
think there’s much more to the move than that. The Senate, they
point out, is not the stepping stone to the White House. Only one
senator ever got to the Washington mansion via that route, and that
was Ohio’s Warren Harding in 1920, who was a compromise candidate.
Senator Knowiand would like to be President. He's made no
secret of it So, say the politicos, he’s getting into a position where
he can more effectively bid for the GOP nomination in 1960. And
that means that he will run for Governor of California in ’58 and
thus, if successful, gain-control of the Golden State delegation to the
Republican Convention in 1960. There is no doubt that he would be a
formidable opponent for the gubernatorial nomination against Governor
Knight if the latter seeks another term.
Well, It will probabiy be another year at least before we know
the real answer. But in the meantime it will make for interesting
speculation and not a little sleeplessness for some of the current Sacra
The 1957 Outlook
"The momentum of high activity will surely carry over in'-o 1957
and find business especially active in the early months of the year.
There is every evidence that we will progress to higher levels of pro
duction, sales, consumer income and consumer spending for the twelve
months ahead.’’ This observation was made by S. dark Beise, presi
dent of Bank of America, in his year-end business statement He also
•aid that he looks for even larger outlays this year than in 1956 for
plant and equipment since America still does not have enough such
y^iiitiM necessary to ita economy. "A decrease in residential build
ing," be declared, "has been more than offset by an expansion in
commercial and Industrial construction. We can expect to see a
moderate growth in total construction in 1957. National defense ex
penditures are Increasing and this is of particular import to the West.”
The president of the world's largest bank said that bankers during
1956 “demonstrated a high sense of responsibility" in meeting credit
needs. “Every effort has been made,” Beise said, “to advance funds
In a to promote the maximum growth and production, with
particular concern btmg directed toward the needs of small business
firms which do not have access to national capital markets."

Bob Bogue, editor of the Oakland Independent, announced
last week that his newspaper is discontinuing a number of
special features. To be omitted in future issues will be the edi
torial page, his own personal column, "On the Sunny Side,” and
a woman's column by his wife.
Mr. Bogue in commenting on the move last week, explain
ed that the features are being dropped because ot the need
for economy. Time consumed in writing the columns and in
setting the type and space used by the columns will be devoted
to something more productive, he stated. Inflating costs of
production are blamed.

Because a Walthill citizen wrote a letter to a Sioux City
newspaper regarding the driving of teen-agers in Walthill, his
home was the victim of an attack last week. He was awakened
to find a large, home-made arrow embedded in his front door
to which had been fixed a copy of his letter to the newspaper.
The arrow was made out of iron pipe and fitted with a piece
of sharp steel which penetrated the door. Also fastened to the
arrow was a note calling the man "an old buzzard” and stating
that “old fogeys like you are more of a hazard to traffic than
teen-agers are.” The note urged that licenses should be taken
away from older folks so the teen-agers could have room to
operate. The arrow was placed on display at the Lyons Mirror

A man near Pawnee City nas found a way to turn his idle
time into profit. He and his wife and family have developed a
walnut meat business.
Each fall the farmer scours the country buying walnuts.
Then during the winter months the family breaks them and pick
out the nuts. Last year they picked 267 quarts and are well on
their way to tie that figure this year, according to the Pawnee
Republican. They find they can sell more than they can pick.
The family has developed a certain skill in cracking the
walnuts so that the meats come-out with but little crushing.
After the nuts are picked, the shells are scattered on the j
farm driveway and make an excellent coating against mud.

Hemingford has taken some drastic steps to reduce school
expenses there. The school board has voted to stop accepting
pupils from other districts in view of the fact that existing
facilities do not provide space for more pupils. It is pointed out
that the tuition which is paid is sufficient to care for the day
to-day expenses of educating a child but does not leave anything
with which to build additional buildings or retire indebtedness.
Also clipped from the curriculum are vocational home
making, agriculture, shop training and driver education courses.

Kasper, the white supremacist
who was charged with sedition
and inciting to riot during the
recent Clinton, Tenn., interega
gation disturbances, was depicted
today as a one-time intimate of
Negroes who had “worked, play
ed and danced with them” in
The strange background of the
27-year-old segregationist was
disclosed in an article in the
new issue of Look Magazine,
which labeled New Jersey-born
Kasper as an “Intruder in the
“Despite Kasper’s ranting a
bout white supremacy,” the
magazine said, he had operated a
bookstore in New York’s Green
wich Village where he “never
drew the color line," and was
regarded as “a sincere, affable
host who befriended Negroes."
He told many Negroes, accord
ing to Look, that socially he was
“passing” in the colored world,
just as many fair-skinned Neg
roes “pa**" as Caucasian*.
’ ‘John had a way about him
and could get avay with say
ing that,” the magazine quotes a 1
Negro intimate of Kasper.
Arrested three times for his'
infiamitory activities in the
South, Kasper is pictured as a!
counsellor to Negro associates
who resented discrimination.

take a painting and hang it in'

of His Rights
Washington — Charges that
the Republicans, in coalition with
southern Democrats, are trying
to deprive Negro Congressman
Adam Clayton Powell, Jr, of
New York, of his seniority rights,
were made by Congressman
James Roosevelt, Democrat ot
California, last Wednesday.
In a special press release from
his office, Roosevelt disclosed 1
that during Wednesday's organ
ization of the House Committee
on Education and Labor, the
chairman, whom he did not iden
tify by name, was asked if he
would appoint Powell to one of
five subcommittee chairman
ships, to be given to the five
senior members on the majority
Powell had the "third highest
seniority" of those on the com
mittee, Roosevelt said.
“Under the generally accept
, ed seniority provisions of the
Hon sc,” the chairmanships
were due the five seniors,
The chairman answered “no—
because of difficult circumstanc
j es”, Roosevelt said He did not
specify what the chairman said
the “difficult circumstances”
Roosevelt said he then made a
motion, “in order to protect Mr
Powell’s rights”, that would have
required the chairman by rule to
appoint the subcommittee chair
manships by seniority.
“The majority of the Demo
crats present, a total of 9, vot
ed to insure Mr. Powell’s
chairmanship. Nineteen, In- j
eluding each and every one of
the Republicans, voted to de
prive him of this right,”
“The coalition of Republicans
and Dixiecrats once again stood
firm, and the lesson should be
obvious to all,” Roosevelt stated i
