Almost About Everything By Percy Villa Tuesday night I took my son, Herbie, to nee his first boxing show and what a thrill we both had. .. .It has been a long ambition of mine to take him to a boxing show in fact I had planned all this even bc fore he was bom. I took Herbie to Louis dressing room him whs In fart they spoke for a few minutes and as I was ready to take Herbie to his seat I ! overheard Herbie telling Ixniis how to fight his opponent Hub* rt Hood. LOUIS NOTES: V laotiis received $6,000 for his end. in other a - l.s a i round Promoter ' "] hi ft also paid ho».| ar.d Iran |■ r <4 penses for four !<>< will in Chicago 1111 til Saturday. . .talking business with his new VILLA partners, Norris A Wirtz. . , A couple of zil lionaires from New York, Chicago and Detroit. . . .Saturday he leaves for California for a 10 day vacation. . . With no managers or trainers “I Ju»t want in to be alone”. . .Claims to have enough money and good investments put away so that you don't ever hear of any benefits for Louis. . .Hopes to play at least two rounds of golf a day while in Cali fornia. . .Hilly Colbert made a profit of about $1.04)0 on the promotion. The little contest of ours that started last week has already brought in many returns: To those that came in late we’ll repeat: Two ringside seats for the April 7th boxing show at the Audi torium for the best definition of a LIBERAL, . in twenty-five or less words. The winning letter plus some of the runner-ups will be printed in this column April Bth. . .The contest ends April Ist so hurry, hur ry, hurry. Have a few samples of what a LIBERAL means and then go ahead and write your own; Wright Brooks "A liberal is one who be lieves in the value of human personality”. .Rabbi Albert Minda: "The Latin ‘liberalis’ means free, and thus the word in its basic source means freedom as opposed to slavery”. . .Gov. Luther Ymirigdahl: “A liberal believes first and foremost In democracy with constitutional guarantees for liberty of the individual and minorities he is against the monolithic state”. . .John Simmons: "A true American ‘Liberal 1 believes in preserving the system that provides the most to divide.” Bradshaw Mtatfftpr: “A Liberal is a person who is commonly regard ed as 'broadminded.' He needs a conservative base to keep him an chored to the 'eternal verities’ and a genuine impulse for experimenta tion to give him the broadeNt viewpoint and perspective his anchor will permit” Now you have an idea on what a LIBERAL is write in your let ter and win two ringside seats for the April 7th boxing show. Jack McDowell sa; rs. The founder of the Re ham Lincoln, must be turning in his grave at the present unholy alii ance between many Republican Senators and the Dixiecratx The Jackie Graves Miguel Acevedo match is catching on but fast. Harry Hirach, in charge of the tickets, tells me that in less than two hours after the match was first announced he had fifty orders for tickets. Without any if* and hut’s and no fence riding I’m going to pick Jackie Graves now instead of waiting until the day of the match. It seems as though everyone eise’s mind is made up Last Saturday Mr. Newman and I both attended the State Con vention of the (Americans for Democratic Action) at the Ixiwry Hotel. . Senator Hubert Humphrey was the principal speaker, and what a grand talk he gave? After listening for nearly an hour to the Senator. I’m far better versed politically about the Republicans, Dtxiecrats, Democrats, Civil Rights and the Filibuster The Republican Party, not all of them but at least some twenty of ’em who pledged Civil Rights and broke their promise have something to worry about in future elections. Taking away millions of people's liberties doesn’t exactly win votes. Have a Happy Week-End. MENTION THIS PAPER TO ADVERTISERS ELK'S CAFE SBB Rondo Avo. Regular Meals, 9 a. m. to 7:80 p. m.

Of course I don’t want you to think that I didn’t receive your letter fa couple of months ago) X did! And t«*iay I am just taking time out to write to you. I guess you’d like to know what made me think of you thu bright fbrrr) March day. Well, tonight (Tuesday) the talk of th* town seems to be the Joe Louis Hurbert Hood exhibition, and nat orally when I think of fighters, I think of you (smile). By the way have you heard from Eddie ? As far as the news about town is concerned, there really Isn’t much to tell. I stayed home last Tuesday evening and listened to ‘‘THIS IS YOUR LIFE,” with the featured personality none other than Mary liethune. It really was a very k<hml program. Thursday I attended a club meeting of the Tri Phi Delta’s. Friday I went to the Shnners circus and was it ever fun! (’aught a glimps* of Faustina Robinson and her two children. Wazzy Lewis and family Delores and Bunny Sears and just oodles of others. The place was sr parked that the people were actually sitting on the steps! Some ol the kids got mighty sick. I’ll bet! 1 don’t know just what got m* down tho’ . . (maybe I shouldn’t have eaten peanuts, pop-corn, flosf candy, ice cream, pop and everything all at the same time.) How ever, if it comes your way. be sure to see it. It’s really exciting! ! ! Saturday night was the big deal tho’ Practically everyone ami their brother was at the American I.egion hall in the St. Paul Audi torium for the big dance. Honestly, it was the very first time that I’d ever had the opportunity to hear Dickie Mayes’ orchestra, and they aren't bad at all! In fact, with their music, and Dickies voice, it made quite a sharp combination Oh yes, some of the many peopk that were there included: Verlene Price, Laßohn Latimore, Georgia Russell. Gene Goss, Margie and Hilly Tindell, Josclyn Jones. Hortens*'. Nelson Ballenger, Bey Price, Kirn and Booker Ellis, Jane House, Mr and Mrs Robert Johnson, Mr and Mrs. George Washington, Buba Jackson.

Con gratulations are in order for them!) Sunday afternoon, helle\e is or not, I was on a panel diseus nlon at llallie (|. Itrown. The discussion was on ‘Mob Opportunities for the Negro,” and I discussed the clerical aspect of it to the best of my knowledge. Virginia lloffstrum really knows her stuff when it comes to making character sketches of Individuals. at least she got me down pat! Naturally her father is just atnuit one of the greutest in his field, and hr did an excellent job too! Some of the many personalities included: Annabellc Jones, Earl McGee, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Mansfield, Muss I. M Carden, Stanley publican Party, Abra Williams, Pud and Pie Thompson. Bruce Williams, Rosemund Miller June Sessions, Jeanne Brown. Shirley Kyle, Kenneth Robinson, Don aid and Gloria Boyce, Kathy Coram and many more Today I also received my invitation for the wedding that’s to take place next week. You say you don’t know who the hook-up couple of the week is 0 Why non** other than Elizabeth Gross, of Des Moines. lowa, and St. Paul’s own Merle A Young. Will tell you all about the wedding in my next letter. Golly, I got so carried uway with myself that I neglected to ask you how you were! Hope this finds you feelin’ like your old natural self namely, in the beat of health. Say, hold on for a minute, will you! Somethings going on out in front . . . Well, I’m back. The excitement is being caused by a couple of little boys who got their kites caught in the telephone wires. Yes, spring is her**! ! Someone called the fire department, and you KNOW that I want to be on hand when they come, so be good, write soon, and until I hear from you again, I remain.

(Continued from page 1 ) ing, the position each witness was standing, and for exact movements after the shooting Often brandishing the small 25 caliber automatic pistol used dur ing the shooting, he tried to pull from each witness testimony that would make his client appear to have been acting in self defense. He admitted later, however, that the jury probably would have found him guilty of first degree manslaughter By pleading to the lesser of the two charges, Nealie took a gam ble. because it is possible that the jury would have found him not guilty. Nealie, formerly of Oklahoma j City. Ok la., spent 12 months in I the Coast Guard, having volun ! t»*ered at the age of 17. He was j on the USS Samuel (’has**, the only Negro on the ship. This ship I was bombed, during its first inva l sion, and Nealie was one of the few who survived. He received a citation from President Truman ! for meritorious duty overseas. After a discharge from the Coast I Guard, he spent 18 months in a veterans hospital getting treat - ! merit for his nerves. Witnesses in the case were ! Walker K. Bremer, a senior engi j neer draftsman, who drew up the position of the Treasure Inn. and j explained it to the jury. Roy C. Heron, physician and surgeon and < hief deputy coroner for Ramsey ! County, who testified that (’lardy died from loss of blood from five puncture wounds m his body caused by four bullets.
