Endsley Exec Secy and Trees RESOURCES sll 000 000 You are now going to hear an interesting little story, dear readers. If you will recall, on Feb. 27, Mr. Henry Wallace appeared at a political rally in Minneapolis. On the morning of Feb. 27, Mr. Wallace and his campaign manager, C. B. (Beanie) Baldwin, K’teen d the local press at the Kadi--. Hotel. Dunne the pre-- conference this writer a-ked Mr. W some ; -t the que-ti c. • c r’-.ed <• har made by the National Urban laaem - l.e-Ut t; I a n k 'e i and syndicated columnist Victor Kiesel that Henry, ’y ‘ when he was vice president, had brushed <>tT a delega IBSS turn of Negro leaders who had come to ask his help in the case of Odell Waller, condemned sharecropper. The delegation included \ Philip Randolph, head <>f the Sloping Car Porters; Channing Tobins, then senior secretary for the national Y.M.C.A.; and Mrs. Mary McLeod Bethune, nationally famous woman educator. NELL RUSSELL At the press conference, Baldwin said that Mrs. Bethune had issued a statement concerning the incident. Remember the press conference took place on the morning of FEBRUARY 27. I have been forwarded the following information from New York: ON MARCH 4, SIX DAYS AFTER the Wallace appearance here Henry Wallace and C. B. Baldwin visited Mrs. Bethune at the Hotel Roosevelt in New York City. This was the afternoon of the dinner given in honor of the elderly woman educator. The two men reportedly spent about a half hour with Mrs. Bethune during which time they told her they were not happy about the “brush-off” story and would like to have her issue a statement w’hich if not denying the incident, would at least clearly show a friendly relationship exists between Wallace and Mrs. Bethune. Mrs. Bethune, I am informed, recommended that they take the matter up with her advisors as to the form and content of such a statement. No such statement has been issued to date, a source close to Mrs. Bethune tells me. Mrs. Bethune is reportedly not in favor of a third party at this time, although she does not have any particular dislike for Mr. Wallace. Her main concern right through here are a million dollar endowment fund for her school in Florida, Bethune-Cookman, and a substantial operating fund for the National Council of Negro Women. C. B. Baldwin not only misrepresented Mrs. Bethune when he publicly credited her with making a statement she did not make, but showed pretty clearly at the same time that apparently he has little compunction about juggling the truth to fit his candidate’s convenience. MAKING WITH THE MOVIES: “Call Northside 777”—better than average movie fare about a newspaper reporter who tracks down evi dence that clears an innocent man. James Stewart is the reporter. What tossed me for a loop was the scene where he interviews Richard Conte in prison, doesn’t jot down a word, then scribbles the info after Conte leaves the room. If all reporters operate according to this formula, it probably accounts for the frequent irate charges of: “I bin misquoted!” “SAlGGON”—Veronica Lake looking like she forgot to take her vitamin pills, and Alan Ladd looking like Alan Ladd. I’m sorry I didn’t get the name of the film newcomer who plays the role of an ex-army major doomed to die of a brain injury. He’s CUTE. The plot deals with intrigue in the Far East and has been done in every “B” ham yarn since Mary Pickford’s curls. “IF WINTER COMES” —Walter Pidgeon being very noble; Deborah Kerr, the English import, being very noble; Angela Lansbury being very nasty. If you insist on going, don’t say I didn’t warn you. Or maybe it was because there was a tomato sitting in front of me wearing A Hat. I could only see the top six inches of the screen. Methinks that was enough. The passengers on a south-bound Fort Snelling trolley were treated to a hair-raising few minutes last Wednesday night. A red-haired and not-so-young female character wobbled alcoholically off the car at the Milwaukee tracks crossing at 27th Street. The red lights were on, a train was bearing down on the crossing a scant few hundred yards away. The lady and her load lurched unsteadily across the tracks. The pas sengers on the trolley, already watching her progress because of her unsteady exit from the car, were horrified. She stumbled forward, leached the other side just as the train roared by. Everybody on the car sat back, limp with relief. All except one brother slumped on one of the long seats in the front of the car. He was too full of alcoholic spirits to care. At Street, he struggled to his feet, lost his balance, grabbed hold of the fare box for support. “Wanna’ get off at Henna’pen,” he whushed to the motorman. “You got on at Hennepin,” the motorman reminded him. “Thash al’ri, thash where I wanna’ get off,” the inebriate insisted and clambered unsteadily from the trolley talking to himself. They are certainly making potent stuff these days. All You Bowlersl Bowlers should enter the All-American Bowling Tournament being sponsored by the Twin City committees for fair play in bowling. The A.B.C. which has controlled most tournament play in America will not allow non-whites to enter tournaments. Every bowler white or black who believes in fair play and decency in sports should enter the All-American Bowling Tournament. A total of $750 in prizes will be offered winners. Team play events will be held at Central Alleys, 9 North Sixth St., Minneapolis, April 10 and 11. Doubles and singles. University Alleys, 666 University Ave., St. Paul, on April 24 and 25. This newspaper is anxious that bowlers of the community support this tournament. The success of the affair will be a blow at the bigotry of the American Bowlers Congress.
