Since this column is written Wednesday afternoon and the Jo
Simmons Testimonial Dinner was held last night at this moment
know well in advance that last nights dinner party for John Simmc
was a grand affair.
It was Indeed a pleasure to work with such a splendid civ
minded committee. A special thanks to Eleanor Moen, York Langt
and Shirley Zaverl and an extra spacial thank you to the many oth
members and ticket sellers.

Never did I dream that one person could have so many personal
friends and well-wishers as John has. The Democratic Farmer Labor
party of which he was a leader will miss his many talks and organi
Wednesday night the most talked about fight in many years took
plase between Sugar Robinson and Randy Turpin. The other w< ek
we predicted that Turpin would win and even though the fight is
now over, we’re not sorry for that prediction. The fight pictures of
their fight a few months ago in London is doing a bang-up business.
Personally, I think they are the bast fight-flickers I've ever seen.

JUST CALL ME "GRAMPS". . .
Governor and Mrs. Youngdahl will long remember the month of
August. As it was that month when he wan confirmed for appoint
ment to Federal Judge and also became a Grandpa, and Mrs. Y a
Grandma. Between talks nowadays he beams with joy in saying:
"Just call me grandpa instead of governor." His grandson, (Tod
Peterson) and his parents live in Oakland, California,

Faye Emerson, one of my favorite TV gals, accordir
theatrical weekly, Variety, has contracted to do a daily column Most
of us In this business lean backward*, to do our best, but the new
Bister got famous bending forward If she is as good at a punchline an
she has been with the neckline, she should go far, though some TV
critics have said that she went too far.
A word about the Flanagan brothers: Like most fighters, if you
look at the record book and also at the police records they get them
selves jammed with the law. I once read a manager's stationery with
a list of fighter’s that also went something like this “Fighters That
Fight” . . . With the Flanagans it should read, “Fighters that Fight
In and Out of the Ring." The talkative Flanagans are disgusted with
the fight game and Del has even sold his Minneapolis home and is
looking for one in St. Paul. I Ed. note: ilasik who's disgusted, mmmm?

I like Aiderman Stan Anderson's quip the other day. He says:
“You don't have to read the papers to find out what’s wrong with the
boxing game The trouble is the laid fighters aren't bad enough and
the good ones aren't good enough. If I may borrow you're saying:
“But Don't Get Me Wrong I Still Love The Fight Game

My Sullivan, the one time fancy middleweight from St. Paul was
telling me the other day of one of the boys who came home late and
told his wife he’d been up with a sick friend.
“What was his name?” demanded his wife.
Replied the husband: "He was too sick to tell me

The next big fistic attraction takes place in New York (where
did you suppose> between Willie Pep and Sandy Saddler. That, too,
should be a homy of a battle, as in their last fight both fought a
toe to toe battle for fifteen rounds. My plans call for me being at the
ringside for that one. Fight date is the 26th.
Aiderman Frankie Wolinski who used to be a fight pleaser him
self, tells me about the so-so fighter who was telling one of the hoys
about his recent fight in Chicago and said: "And when it was over,
the fans applauded." . . . “Maybe", said his friend, "they applauded

I still believe it's time to appoint a Negro to the Minnesota State
Boxing Commission. Negro boxers are more active than any other
nationality group In pro boxing and in some states that fact has been
recognized by the placing of a Negro on the Commission.

SEEK TO CHANGE
Washington, Sept. 6 Hear
ings on the resolution introduced
by Senators Wayne Morse and
Hubert Humphrey to provide for
limitation of debate by a simple
majority vote Will begin on Octo
ber 1. Senator Carl Hayden, chair
man of the Cenate Committee on
Rules and Administration, has in
formed Clarence Mitchell, director
of the Washington Bureau of the
National Association for the Ad
vancement of Colored People.
The decision to hold open hear
ings on the proposed change of
the Senate rules came last May
after the NAACP in conference
with 30 other national organiza
tions urged Senate leaders to
take such action. Under present
Senate rules requiring the vote of
61 senators, or a constitutional
two-thirds, it. has been impossible
to stop a filibuster, the NAACP
has contended ever since the rule
was adopted in 1949. As a result,
it has been impossible to pass any
civil rights legislation.
At the NAACP-initiated con
ference last May in Washington,
Walter White, executive secretary
of the NAACP, headed a delega
tion which conferred with Sena
tors Ernest W. McFarland, ma
jority leader, and Kenneth
Wherry, minority leader. Senator
Wherry, a member of the Rules
Committee, obtained unanimous
consent of the committee to hold
open hearings on change of Senate
Ruh'S. No date was set at that
In addition to considering the
resolution introduced jointly by
Senators Morse and Humphrey,
the committee will also consider
the resolution jointly introduced
by Senators Lehman. Murray.
Magnuson. Neely. Douglas. Hum
phrey. Green. Benton. Pastore.
McMahon and Kilgore
This resolution permits the
shutting off of a filibuster by
majority vote or by a two thirds
vote. The two thirds vote would
be required if the filibuster is to
be shut off one day after sena
tors request this action by peti
tion. The majority vote would ap
fourteen days after the petition is
filed. The petition would require
sixteen signatures in either case.
