- i« Plane Crash Near
«iUS Home ■WHITE PLAINS, N. Y. — (ANP)—Despondency is said to! be responsible for the airplane death last week of Raymond J. P. Heraux near the home of his es tranged wife, Mrs. Harriet “Daisy” Richardson Heraux. A note found in Heraux’ pocket gave police the impression the accident was deliberate suicide. It read: “In case of accident notify Martin, 85 West Post road, White Plains, N. Y.” Heraux, who was granted a pilot’s license on June 19, crashed his small rented plane into a nine-foot alleyway between two buildings in the heart of this city, near the home of Mrs. Zelma Martin. His wife, with whom he had tried to affect a reconcilia . tion, lives in Mrs. Martin’s home and both are employed as tele phone operators in the White Plains exchange of the New York Telephone company. Police theorized that Heraux had attempted to kill himself in the crash and injure or kill his wife also, but at the last minute had cut the engine to prevent injuring her. Had he not cut the motor of his plane when he went into the fatal spin there would have been a terrific explosion that probably would have set his wife’s j home afire, police declared. Mrs. Heraux, the former wife i of Dr. H. Binga Dismond, promi nent New York City physician, met Heraux in Haiti after divorc ing Dr. Dismond. They came to: New York and Heraux obtained employment as a bookkeeper for . the Moore-McCormack Lines, Inc., 6 Broadway, New York City. -* FELSENTHAL CENTER BEGINS ACTIVITIES The Felsenthal social center, 4101 Calumet avenue, will open Friday evening, Oct. 18, it was announced this week by C.

Virgin Islands Laboratory of Human Relations Hastie Says WASHINGTON — (ANP) — More than 800 Washingtonians heard Gov. William H. Hastie of the Virgin Islands tell of the people who reside there and of their relationship with each other, as compared to our “race tension” here in America, on Monday eve ning at the John Wesley AME Zion church. Principal speaker at the 33rd annual Alliance Day and Memorial celebration, sponsored by the Washington Branch of the Na tional Alliance of Postal employes, Hastie called them “a laboratory of human relations” which he hopes will be “for the good of the islanders, the nation, and mankind as a whole.” That the Islands ^illiteracy is very low, the Governor said, was proven when the Selective Ser vice act was extended to the na tives. The men all easily qualified for various branches of the ser vice and met all standards of edu cation as were required. Gov. Hastie told of an incident which took place on his return to America not long ago from the islands. On being asked how many men were in the local legislature, and replying that there were 16, the governor said the next question asked was how many were white and how many coloi'ed. “This might sound funny to you, or you might think I am trying to be funny”, the governor told the audience, “but I actually had to stop and count and try to re member -who was who.” The reason for this, he ex plained, was that there were no such thing as electing a white man or a Negro, but simply elect ing an individual. “In the Virgin islands the race is not important, for we are cilivized there. There is no prob lem of race tension, and one goes into a store, the banks, or visits his or her neighbor, and there is no thought of what the texture of the person’s skin may be.” The islands were further cited as an example to this nation of how people of different races can live under our flag, and Hawaii was also compared with the Vir gin islands. Jim Crow Bus Case Headed For High Court RICHMOND, Va. — (ANP) — Another jim crow bus suit is head ed for the U. S. Supreme court. Following the rules of Judge Willis D. Miller in law and equity court here Tuesday against Mrs. Ethel New, who was ejected from a Greyhound bus in Lynchburg on June 10, 1944, because she refused to take a rear seat, Mrs. New’s lawyers indicated they will appeal the case. Judge Miller’s decision confirmed a previous jury decision against Mrs. New, a Kentucky citizen, and is expected to be upheld by the Virginia Supreme court, which means that the case will then be appealed to the U. S Supreme court. Last June, the U. S. Supreme court differed with the Virginia Supreme court in th£ case of Mrs. ; Irene Morgan, who was fined $10 for refusing to take a back seat on a Greyhound bus, and ruled; against racial segregation in in terstate bus travel. Mi's. New’s case differs from Mrs. Morgan’s on the point of de parture and point of intended ar rival. Mrs. Morgan bought a ticket from Norfolk to Baltimore. Mrs. New’s ticket indicated two points within the state, although she said it was part of an intended trip to Lynch, Ky. Mrs. New suffered a miscarriage on June 18, which she attributes: to the struggle to eject her from the bus. She is suing the Atlantic Greyhound lines and W. N. Smith, Lynchburg policeman, for $10,000 damages.
