I Storm Damage Repairs (
NEW YORK CITY—It was only a few columns back, while writ
ing on the "Amos 'n' Andy" controversy that I mentioned the some
times unfortunate results of show people dabbling around in race re
lations, politics and political idealogies. I named
Lena Horne as a performer who hadn't had too
happy an experience with this sort of thing.
Last week the lovely Ix*na found herself
in the midst of a controversial situation as the
result of haling been listed in “Red Channels"
with more than a page of alleged affiliation
with groups tagged as subversive on the V. 8.
Attorney General's roster.
Red Channels", if you don’t already know, is
a report of “Communist influence" in radio and
Nall BuaoeU television. It names performers and entertainers
who have a background of membership or sup
posed affiliation with pro-Commie and Commie groups.
Lena, who appeared on the Ed Sullivan “Toast of the Town"
television show last Sunday night, was the object of quite a behind
the-scenes hulabaloo that reportedly had Columbia Broadcasting and
advertising agency executives in a dither right up until show time.
This once again brings up the question of how it's possible
to distinguish Commie sympathiiern from naive souls who let
themselves be roped in because they were sold a bill of goods
about civil rights, the dignity of man, etc.
There's not the slightest doubt that prominent people in all fields
and professions have allowed their names to be used without checking
very carefully on what they were lending their suport to. Some
times names have been used without the individuals permission or
Many a performer who let his name be included on a sponsor list
for some so-called “liberal" cause in the 1940's now finds himself in
the position of being suspect. However, it seems that one would have
to be very, very un-hep in the way of the world, or very lazy to allow
his name to be used over and over again without taking a few steps
to find out what it was all about.
Show people had best stick to their knitting just as experts
in social relations had best stick to theirs. The attempts of In
dividuals in both groups to play patty-cake on the other's side
of the fence have been anything but a howling success.
For that reason, I am definitely against any kind of national
citizen's advisory committee on radio and television. The layman has
no business meddling in the entertainment industry unless some
specific rule of moral, civil or ethical behavior has been flagrantly
violated. And show people ought to confine their frisking around to
the footlights and leave the heavy intellectual and political gum-beat
ing to the professional do-gooders.
The high rate of “mortality” that has come as the result of
show people setting themselves up as heavy thinkers, and social
relations kids trying to police show business should be proof
enough In itself that the two don't make comfortable bed-fellows.
I wonder if any of the NAACP top grass here saw that Labor
Day "parade” put on by a certain section of the Harlem West Indian
population ?
I have never in my life sren anything like it, —and hope not
to again. If something like that had appeared on television. It
would have been shouted down as a “disgrace,” an “insult” or
what have you. There were such eye-fetching little tidbits as six
almost naked teen-age boys blackened up to look like cannibals.
They hung onto a beat-up panel truck which made no pretense
of being a float. There was an elderly woman dressed in native
costume who stopped along the line of march to lustily swig out
of a whiskey bottle handed her from the crowd. There were scant
ily-clad babes using the calypso beat to shake their posteriors In
a manner that one usually can expect only in a third-rate floor
show. I'gh! No orderliness in the marching, nothing.
There is no excuse for this type of thing in Harlem. The respon
sible members of the West Indian citizenry should put a stop to it
once and for all.
Looks as if the guess ventured here recently that bandleader
Erskine Hawkins is really bent in the bankroll and just can't keep
up that alimony sugar Flossie's asking for, was just about right if an
item in Dottie Kilgallen's September 10th column was correct. Kil
gallen said Hawk's selling his Caddy and his jewelry to raise the ante
to pay Flossie.
Next Week: A review of the foothall picture, “Saturday's
Hero”, starring John Derek, a film blast at college methods of
prostituting good athletes In order to bring cash customers to
the stadiums.
A person who signs himself G. Wymer or Wyner, writes to sug
gest I spend less time criticizing members or my own race and more
time "exposing reactionaries like Senator McCarthy." Oh, fiddle fud
dle. It's probably news to Mr Wymer or Wyner or whatever his name
is. but my criticism of the sun-tanned brethem is nothing more than
the truths less inhibited members of the race admit among themselves
when they think the Great White Father isn't peeking through the
As far as the Senator from Wisconsin in concerned, I prefer
to hold my opinion about him In reserve for the present. One
reason is that some of the Individuals here who are attacking
him with fanatical zeal are themselves open to question when It
comes to Americanism. Methinks they doth protest too much.
