Boy Scout Breeden
Reports On Jamboree
Held In Austria
By James Breeden
Here I mu. Home from the great* t experience a scout can '
hope for, a World Jamboree.
Before we got to the .Jamboree, I had a chance to visit mj
uncle and aunt, John ami Harriett Thomas, in Munich. They
met me at the train and 1 spent the night at their home in tjie
suburb of Munich.
In the evening John showed |
some colored slides he had taken
in Venice. He took me to his of
fice the next morning to see some
of his work. The 1.R.0. Is a truly
International organization The
staff Is made up of men and wo
men of many countries.
I had a very wonderful time.
John, Harriett, their two children.
Judy 5, and Susan, 10 months, and
their two dogs. Joe, a German
Shepherd and Artois, a toy
French Poodle, were all In fine
health and spirits.
On August 3, the Seventh
World Jamboree opened. Each
country represented marched Into
a huge natural arena for the open
ing ceremony.
At one end of the arena seven
towers were raised, representing
the seven world Jamborees.
From one of the towers a
striking speech was given in three
languages. It told that this was
the “Jamboree of Simplicity." The
purpose was to promote friend
ship, peace, and liberty. At the
conclusion of the ceremony, we
marched to our camp sites by
countries. We were led by our
band which played marches by
Sousa. - •
i
Thus began ten of the, most ,
glorious days of our lives. Swap
ping and chumming with boys
from many countries was great
fun. |
Bud Bouschor, my tentmatr.
and I were good friends with two
boys from Luton, England. Every
evening wo would sit with them in ,
our tent. We talked of many
things. Life In our respective ,
countries, scouting. Just plain bull ,
sessions, were some of our sub- ,
jects. Bud and I were surprised to ,
learn that at 15 years most of the
fellows must quit school and begin (
full time work. ,
Gus and Spike, our English
friends, were attending night |
school while they worked. They ,
said that at the Jamboree they (
were getting more food than they ;
were getting In England where ,
much of their goods is rationed. ■
They told us of the bombings,
and it rarely made us feel good ,
that we had never felt that part
of the war. Their first-hand ex
periences made us realise more 1
fully why this Jamboree was
striving to promote peace.
Uncle John visited me both
weekends. He brought fried
chicken both times. It made me
the envy of the troop for a few <
days.
We went on making friends the
rest of the week. On Sunday
mornings we had church services
They were the most Interesting I
have ever attended. Thousands of
boys responded to the minister in
their native tongues The sermon
was given In German. French and
English.
Sunday evening was the big
American campfire We brought
to the arena any friends we wish
ed to invite. We sang songs to
gether. were led in yells, and
watched acts put on by fellows in
our contingent. The thrilling cli
max came when everyone present
lit a candle. The circle of darkness
became a brilliant circle of living
light. To me It symbolized the
light of freedom spreading from a
single source until even the dark
est corners of the earth are illum
inated.
That evening our friends came
to our camp. There were Gus and
Spike from England, Bcngt Niel-

them. They were fascinated, for

before. It seemed as though the
whole campsite was alight that
evening. It wasn't the light of our
campfire. It was the radiance of
good fellowship. I wondered if the
leaders of the world could meet
around a campfire Instead of a
conference table, wouldn't things
go so much more smoothly?
On Monday the Jamboree was
over. Once again we went to the
great arena. This time we didn’t

Dr. Bunche Urges
Negroes To Fight
For Rights Now
, Buffalo IANP) -- Dr. Ralph
! J Bunche. this year’s winner of
the Lovejoy Medal, a memorial to
, Elijah Lovejoy, a white news
, paperman. who was lynched in his
I fight for the franchise of the Ne
, gro, in his address urged Negroes
■to fight for full equality under
American democracy.
Addressing a breakfast costing
$2 50 per plate attended by more
than 1.000 Elks in Hotel Lafay
ette, Dr. Bunche stated:
“The walls of segregation are
toppling everywhere throughout
this nation. We look to the day
when every citizen In this country
can stand on an equal fixiting
with another."
The secretary of the United
Nation’s Division of Trusteeship,
declared that segregation” is a
very great liability of inestimable
coat to our nation. We, ax a nation
stand for freedom and Individual
liberty and we must carry out
these principles at home in order
successfully to fsce the challenges
from without."
The breakfast was in honor of
J. Finley Wilson of Washington.
D. C., Grand Exalted Ruler of
Elks. Judge Hobson R. Reynolds
of Philadelphia served an toast
master. Dr. Bunche called Wilson
a "miracle man" for his great or
ganizational ability. He continued
in his speech:
"There are in our society some
people who apparently do not un
derstand or believe in the tradi
tional American way of life. They
resent the changes that have
come to make for racial better
ment . . . Some people in this
country don't realize that the
emancipation begun by Abraham
Lincoln is now coming to its com
pletion "
He said that all people must get
behind the United Nations be
cause "there will be eventually no
freedom for anybody unless we
have a world order based on law
against aggression The Negro
people can help promote peace by
helping to develop unity In the
United States and giving our na
tion their maximum support."
Bunche Given Ixivejoy Medal
At the Tuesday afternoon ses
sion, held at the Technical High
School Auditorium. Dr. Bunche
received the Lovejoy Medal for
"outstanding contributions to
human progress" The medal,
first awarded In 1949. is given an
nually by the Elks. Wilson an
nounced that the award will be
given next year to Branch Rickey
for his efforts in "emancipating
black athletes”.
In his acceptance speech,
Bunche pointed out:
"The United States is looked to
by the world for leadership. To
provide that leadership, we must
put our own democratic house in
order The United States must
show that American democracy,
the greatest design for living ever
devised, can be color-blind. It
must show that there is no con
nection whatsoever between an
American's worth ax a citizen and
the color of his skin."
To the capacity audience, which
Included Mayor Joseph Mruk of
Buffalo, and Thomas J. Curran,
secretary of state of the state of
New York (representing Gov.
Thomas E. Dewey, who is out of
the country). Dr. Bunche stated
what he felt Negroes wanted now,
and not in the future. He said:
"Do not believe that time will
cure the nation's antl-Negro pre
judices I do not believe that time
will solve the problem and I do
not believe that there is time to
allow gradualism to solve it.
"I want to enjoy the great gifts
and rights of my country while I
am here. I am an American citi
zen now. willing to discharge mv
duties as a citizen, and I want to
enjoy my rights now."

Johannesburg's half- million i
blacks are comjM'lled to live In
"locations," segregated from the
white residential area*. White I
growth has pushed the ha'ations <
farther and farther away from the
center of the city, so that the | I
blacks have to traiel nd lea each I
day to and from work. : 1
Transport costs eat Into their
meager wages: most black
workers have to rise at 4 a. m. to
reach their work at 8. and do not t
get back home until 8 or 9 in the |
evening. ,
But In the last few years. the ,
fearfully overcrowded locations ,
have spilled about a fifth of Jo- ’
hannesburg'x total black popula- >
tion over into shantytowns. The (
majority of the shanty-dwellers (
are officially described as "hard- .
working, respectable people who ,
have been readily absorbed into |
Industry but for whom no houses ,
are available." Johannesburg is ! (
building at the rate of $8,400,000 j (
a month, but nearly all of it goes !,
into new office blocks, white flats,
white homes.
There is little money for black
black housing The blacks have no
political vide and no municipal
voice. They can neither improve
their wages nor persuade the
municipal authorities to siilmidlze
their housing adequately. To meet
the problem, Johannesburg set
aside land at a place called Moro
ka, where 60,000 natives have
built their own homes, unaided.
In Moroka, there is one lavatory
scat for every 250 persons In
Jabavu. one of the better loca
tions. houses are built in blocks of
three The inside walls do not
reach the roof, so separate fam
ilies have no privacy. Any key I
opens and door. A black family's j
total average earnings (all mem- j
bers of It work) are 15 pounds a j
month; the average white i
worker's wage is 50 pounds a '
a month.
Death After Sunset
In the unlighted. unpoliced lo- ■
cations and shantytowns, the na- :
tive criminals who prey on the I
whites have their hideouts They )
prey on the blacks as well The ;
respectable, hard-working major
ity are utterly at the mercy of the I
gangsters (the most notorious'
gang calls itself "the Russians"!
No one dan's go out at night '
Black homes, like white homes

Instead, they rald'them at regular

state-employed railwaymen Thes<
are the whites with whom the J
blacks come into most frequent j
and most painful contact. At rail- j
I tattona and on trains blacks
are joyfully cuffed about by low- |
paid whites
To white South Africans long
confident of their ability to rule
over five times their unmber of
blacks, the blacks have suddenly
become a major interna) foe
This is the real basts of th** Na- I
tionalist government's policy of i
, ajiartheid iapartness; A Nation-
alist frankly told me: "We aim to ■
segregate them completely, living j
as far away from us as possible " ,
"But you need these people to i
keep your industries going
Oh. yes. But we want them to I
live well away from us. Then, If j
there’s trouble, we know where to i
drop the bombs."
A century ago, the whites form- '
ed themselves into a laager when '
attacked by black warriors. To- :
day the order is again to draw I
back into the laager—and shoot '
to kill.
Black and White Justice
Cases of assault by white police '
on black prisoners are numerous.
There have also been cases of tor
ture. In one recent raw In which
the victim died, the policeman re
sponsible wax told he had shown
"too much zeaL"
White murderers (except for J
poisoners) are seldom hanged A
man who shot another in cold 1
blood and then tried to burn the
body got four years But a Negro 1
who stole some cows got eleven ,
years' hard labor This month,
seven white youths beat an old 1
Negro to death (because a friend '
of the Negro had hit a friend of ,
theirs) got a year in jail each
Negro murderers (if their victims (
were white) are nearly always ‘
hanged. So are Negroes who rape |
white women. But two whites who
raped a 16-year-old black girl got |
four years and two years respec
tively for what the judge called a j
"particularly loathsome and dis- |
gusting case." ,
South African jails are over
crowded. mostly with Negroes.
These convicts are used to build
more prisons to hold more Ne
groes They are also hired out to
farmers. Charged with farmers’
111 treatment of such convict
laborers, the Department of Pri
sons admits: "Abuses happen." In
addition to ordinary offenses. Ne
groes may be sent to prison for
1) going on strike. 2) not having
a pass. 3) possessing liquor. 4)
"desertion." Desertion means tak
ing a job and then leaving it with
' out the white employer's permls
' sion. This is an offense under the
! "Masters and Servants Act."
Most offenders are female domes
tic servants, most charges are laid
by white housewives. (Sometimes
I as a good excuse for not paying
, the servant her monthly wages,
desertion may be forced on the
servant by deliberate overwork. If
the servant objects, that is "im
pertinence." which is also a sta
tutory offense for Negroes )
Worse Thun London
All this helps produce crime:
I South Africa has about 3 000
killings and 2.000 rapes a year
Crimes classified as "serious"
■ have increased threefold in ten j
years (but have doubled in the I
1 past two years). Part of the in
crease is due to the Malan govern
ment having reclassified as "ser- |
ious" crime such offenses as as- ‘
vaulting the police and "promot
| ing race hostility." Every month !
14 i>oo Negroes are arrested under
the pass laws and 15 500 under)
the liquor laws. On Ihe Gold Reef. ,
there are three murders every two I
' days. Johannesburg, with a total :
population of 850.000, has twice
the number of crimes committed
,in Greater London with a total '
i population of more than 8.000.000
South African Author Oliver
Walker, commenting on the South
African Negroes many fine quali
ties. has addist that the whites
will make of them a hard, cruel
people in the end." This is happen

CARTER < HAPEL CIH’RCH
Sunday morning the pastor at
Carter Chapel delivered a very
fine and inspiring message from
the subject, "Christ, the Living
Water.” The Rev. Williams said
that as Jesus talked with the
woman at the well, three great
truths were brought to light.
"First", he said, "we see the truth
of His wisdom in knowing and
understanding even the deepest
secrets of the heart: second, we
see the truth of His love in
sypmathizing and forgiving sin;
and third, we see the truth of His
power to save and to supply the
needs of life."
Mrs. Minnie Abston was soloist
at the morning worship Our visi
