P*** «. St. Paul RECORDER, Friday, January 28, 1961
Almost About
Everything
By Percy Villa
Thm Minneapolis Fourth Citato . . .
GIDEON SEYMOUR . . . He's the executive editor of both the
Minneapolis papers. In short he hires and fires anyone on the paper.
When ition the local sheets to editors of top Eastern dailies,
thi boas men are likely to say, "Oh, sur. Old
Seymour's papers, he’s one of the top editors in th<
country '. . . He had every Job with the AP from
from head of its bureau in Pierre, S. D., where he
met his wife "Pete" to correspondent in South
America and top spot in the London bureau where
he planned some of the AP strategy for covering
Hitler’s rampages. He is deeply interested in the
U. 8. minority problem work and this is one of the
first cities that has had two reporters covering such
minority areas. He has been head of the Mlnneapo-
Chureh Federation and is well respected by those
■”-*hune pay-roll.
you mem
Seymour
who ere on the
JOB HENDRICKSON . . . Handsome Joe comes from Cokato,
Minnesota, is a clean-cut and honest person. For a bm|
brief spell Joe was sports editor of the Esquire
Magazine . . . Headquartering in Chicago . . . Be
cause he’s one of the few writers who can handle the ,
kings engllsh like only few can, he is the envy of a ABM W
number of newspapermen. For the past five years ■ ' ' m J V
Joe has been the sports editor of the Tribune and j
has done a bang-up job at it ... Of course we like J
Joe when he’s himself and pulling no punches in his
writings. His piece last week on the Beau Jack-Del ,
Flanagan "fight” (?) was a masterpiece . . . The ****'
Star-Tribune's promotion department once called Hendrickson
him "fearless Joe Hendrickson”. Whs hopponed?
* * *
* GORDON MIKKEUBON . . . He’s the front page ace reporter for
the Minneapolis Star . . . He’s a nice person who also carries the re
spect of being a good newspaperman. Anytime the paper needs a
story or an out of town assignment in most cases Oordy gets the
job, and usually makes you feel as though you were right on the
scene. He is six foot, two inches tall and tips the Toledo's at about
two ten . . . It was Mikkelson who brought out all the headlines In
his series of stories on the Twin City Rapid Transit Co., and recent
grand jury work. At the present time he's covering the State Capital
and the Legislature. He’s a big time reporter who gets ail the facta.
BOWER HAWTHORNE ... I remember some twenty year* ago
when youngish looking Bower got hia start as a re
porter at the present time he is city editor of the
Minneapolis Tribune. Hawthorne is liked and re
spected by all those who work for the paper for
many reasons—mainly because they know he la one
of them and success hasn't gone to his head. He Is
a village clerk in Edina, and a fearless exponent of
honesty and efficiency In city government . . . Has
a yen for women reporters as he feels that they can
do a better Job in certain stories that make it more
readable. They are topnotchers like Oeri Hoffner,
Jean James and Barbara Flanagan. He runs his staff
with light firm touch. A definite comer In the field of newspapering.
* * *
PAUL SWENSON —Last year he succeeded Bill Stevens as man
aging editor of the Minneapolis Tribune. Was chief of the copy desk
at the old Minneapolis Tribune . . . The gang around Fourth Street
still misses Paul. After the old Tribune closed down he left work
for the San Francisco News ... It was a mistake on the local news
papers to let him go but it didn't take long before he was brought
back. Swenson Is known as a newspaperman's newspaperman, equip
ed with an understanding of everything it takes to publish a news
paper.
IP/. : l«f
GERI HOFFNER . . . There'* a gal that should be the envy of
every girl who aeeka a journalism career and that
alao goes for the men folk* too. She la a democratic
aort of a person . . . She la classed aa an expert In
human-relation work and writing and haa done aome
wonderful human Interest stories on minority prob
lem*. Her recent aerie* of article on the mental hos
pitals of Minnesota was big time. Governor Luther
Youngdahl thought so much of Geri’a stories that he
wrote the Tribune editor congratulating them for
having such an able worker as Geri Hoffner and for
the fine public service her work haa rendered in
getting Information to the public on the mental hos
pital situation In Minnesota . . . She’s must reading
BSD SCHAEFER . . . When better rewrite newspapermen are
born, they ought to be modeled after Ed Schaefer on the Minneapo
lis Btar ... He Is known as one of the fastest writers . . . Schaefer
lives In Richfield . . . Likes to go hunting when he can get away for a
few days . . . His chief Job la labor reporting and manages to please
even the labor unions.

-k Weekly Review
BY GEORGIA BUSSELL DOTY
Last week I gave some of the advantages of a civil service job
. . . but I didn't explain the different types. I don't want you. by any
means, to think that civil service is Just office Jobs . . . there are
hundreds of types of jobs under the civil service such as cooks, hos
pital attendants, Janitors, waiters and custodial workers, Just to
give you a rough idea . . . Civil service takes In all types, of Jobs to
fit all people regardless of education . . . for the college graduate,
they have Jobs to fit your qualification, also with suitable pay rates
. . . for the high school and non-high school graduate there are Jobs
to fit your talents and trade.
I met a girl the other day who waa very disgusted with looking
for a job. I asked her where she had been. Of course, she said as far
as she got was the want ad section of the paper. Now, if you call that
an ambitious person, or even a person who was really out for a job,
I'll wager you’re Juat as lazy . . . The St. Paul Urban League would
be the second place she should go after she has talked to the civil
service head on the type of Job she wants. The Urban League goes
all out to get Joba for persons who are qualified if this agency
couldn’t help her, then an ad in the paper. Scouting around never hurt
anyone . . . After she had done everything possible If a job wasn't
available, then she could be disgusted ... It is much easier for a
woman to get a job than for a man.
Esther Patrick currently with the Traffic Department, took
a test at the Minneapolis Civil Service for Htcno. 11l and Is the
only person of our race, so far, to get first place on the Institute
committee, the pay of the Job Is even with a senior rating or a
supervisor.
Let's sec what the social circle has for this week. Mrs. Mary
Jane Parker of Chicago, 111., relative of Mr. and Mrs. Marion L.
Brown and Lyola Pillows returned home last week after a two week
vacation here. It wasn't exactly a pleasure vacation since Mrs. Parker
waa ill and was here to regain her health . . . Mr. and Mrs. Tony
Mazingo were formally accepted Into the Cameo club, consisting of
husbands and wives of prominent St. Paul families . . . the meeting
was at the home of Mrs. Nelson Ballenger . . . the next meeting will
be with Mrs. Andrew Brent of 321 No. Grotto. . .
Birthday greetings go to little Miss Yvonne Henderson who cele
brated her birthday with her friends at the home of Mrs. Lawrence
Tarver . . . the guest list included Michael and Hyland Stokes, Ga
belle Robinson, Cathy Bryant, Bemie Mclntosh, Sonny Massey, Dan
nie Doty, Buster Tarver and Lyda Tendel . . , Also in line for birth
day greetings is Mrs. Lucius Willis who was honored by a party last
Friday night at the Elks Rest by friends . . . Dorothy Maddix, Beu
lah Nelson, Frances West, Madeline Moaley, Sadie Harrison and Katie
Williams. A luncheon was served and Mrs. Willis received many
lovely gifts . . . Greetings of a different kind go to Mrs. Leonard
Oliver who was surprised last Friday night with a shower for her
expected baby . . . Given by Luana ... In the traditional stork back
ground . . » Evelyn Patterson. Helen Epps, Sadie Jones and many,
many more loaded Mrs. Oliver with many useful and dainty gifts.
If yon suddenly Inherited a fortune, what would you do? I
thought It would be Interesting to find the different reactions to
this question.
Probably the first thing that comes to your mind is cars, furs,
Jewels and homes . . . But actually confronted with a fortune . . .
your reaction might be changed . . . Let's see what Russell LaValle
would do . . . First of all Russell, who would be so shocked . . .
would h»ve to go away to a secluded spot for a month or so to think
things over . . . After finding a worthy cause he would give consider
able amounts away, leaving him, of course, with enough to build Just
two homes. Being a quiet and peaceful man, his home would have
to be in the country . . . Russell’s philosophy on money is odd. He
believes the less money you have the better off you are ... the more
you have the more you worry how someone will steal it from you.
Next week we’ll get the reaction of a young woman which should
prove interesting. That’s all for now. See you next week.

Chicago— (ANP) — Oscar De-
Priest, 79, former congressman
from Chicago, is in Provident hos
pital, after being struck by a bus
as he was crossing South Park
way at 46th street, not far from
his home.
As far as physicians are able to
determine, his is suffering from a
cerebral concussion and a broken
nose. Just how critical his condi
tion is, no one seems to know.
DePrlest's son, O. Stanton De-
Priest, came to his father’s aid,
following the accident.
While crossing the South Park
way. the former congressman was
hit by a bus driven by Emmett
Turner as the vehicle tried to pass
a jitney cab.
For many years DePriest was a
Republican power in Chicago
pilltics. He is the first Negro to
serve in the city council. Recently
he has concentrated in private life
on his real estate activities.
