More than 62 per cent askin & to be excused were busi nessmen, with white-collar workers and craftsmen running a close second. The ex cuse most frequently offered was “pressure of business. ’ -Saturday Evening Post EIGHTEENTH YEAR, NO. 47 I Star & Tribune Set Precedent; Fair Job Ad Premise Set Forth It was revealed this week that the classified advertising columns of the Minneapolis STAR and TRIBUNE now carry the statement: "Advertisements in these columns have been accepted on the premise that jobs offered will be filled on the basis 0 without discrimination because of race, color, religion or nationality in accordance with Fair Employ ment Practices and with the generally accepted qualifica tions. ’' This marks another "first” for the Minneapolis daily papers. No other general circulation daily newspapers have taken a step to advertise the community policy of employment on merit regard less of race or nationality. Even before this new departure the Star and Tribune papers did not accept classified ads which specified race or color. This policy was changed several years ago at the behest of the then executive •ecretary of the Minnesota Jew ish Council, Samuel L. Scheiner. The Minneapolis papers were the first daily papers in the nation to institute such a policy. Most big-city daily papers are filled with offensive classified ads mentioning race, nationality and even skin color. The Star and Tribune were among the first papers in the country to drop racial designation in news stories unless the nationality or racial background of individuals were pertinent to the story or had news value. The arrangements for the latest policy change were worked out with the newspaper by the Min neapolis Fair Employment Prac tice Commission. II They grew out of a request by an advertiser to state that he would welcome all applicants without discrimination. The newspapers said that they always act on the principle that all advertisers will carry out the established community policy of employment on merit. They agreed with the Fair Em ployment Practice Commission that the clear statement of this policy in the newspaper's adver tising columns would be of sub stantial value in helping to make sure that non-discrimination is actually practiced in all Jobs throughout the city. As in its decision not to ac cept race designated advertising, the new notices inserted daily will cost the papers several hun dreds of dollars yearly. The space allotted to the notice will consume quite a few tons of newsprint an nually. Participating in the dsicussions leading up to the policy imple mentation was Robert Witte, manager of the classified adver tising department of the Star and Tribune, and Wilfred C. Iceland Jr., executive secretary of the Minneapolis FEPC. Mr. Witte al so attended a meeting prior to the paper's decision. Paper goes to press early next week because of July tth Holiday.

One reclines in his boat, shades his eyes with a big straw hat, lets his line and bait drift with the currents, musing about things of the past and a few hopes of the future. Now, if a fish gets eaught on his hook, hooray. If not, okay. So in pursuit of this trouble-free state, we dash up to the Utopia of fishermen, Lake Nipig on. Canada Our enthusiasm was magnified by our conversation during the 465 mile drive from the Twin Cities. The fish got bigger, the lake larger, the woods wilder as each mile sped by. Whereupon arriving we could scarcely re strain ourselves from dashing in to the lake and dragging a 100- pound Sturgeon from the bay barehanded! However with the proper res traint and proper license ($6.50) we managed to secure a boat, directions and one (1) Indian guide, named ‘•Chicken" and we were on our way. As is the custom the guide operated the motor, and is the custom since our Red brethem don’t hold an extended conversa tion we sat back and viewed the scenery, chatting all the while with great delight. Boy, oh boy, this was the life! After and hour of this, we cas ually asked our guide and boat driver. “How much more, Chick en?” He only pointed straight ahead. All we could see ever where we looked all around was water, more water. By this time we were In the main body of the lake and the waves carried us up and down as a merry-go-round would. This alone, with the feeling of helpless ness that comes from being on a 60 mile lake made us rather un easy. So it wasn't long before we be gan to question said guide with all of our assumed tones of un concerned query absent, we al most demanded, "How much more, ‘Chicken’ ?". He only grunted and pointed straight ahead.

As we were about to land, I was to jump on shore and tie the boat up. This was my job because I wore water proof shoes. So as we approached. I leaped toward shore being glad and happy to touch land once again. The land I touched was covered with five feet of water. As I floundered happily and the dense woods echoed the laughter of my cohorts, "Chicken" began to scan the skies with his expressionless eyes. Then we were all quiet as he turned pointing to the sky, saying "Storm, go back."

Carlson this week filed for the United States Senate seat now held by Senator Edward J. Thye, announcing that "I ex pect to be elected.” Mr. Carlson, a member of the Minnesota House of Representa tives for the past six years, has the official endorsement for the Senate race of the Democratic- Fanner Labor party of Minneso ta. A former teacher of sociology and economics, he is now engaged in insurance work. Declaring that he differs with Senator Thye "on most of basic issues beneficial to the fanner, the worker, the consumer and minority groups,” he said that he hoped his candidacy would offer to the voters "a clear choice as to the kind of representation they want In the United States Sen ate." Summarizing his stand on the basic issues, he declared: “I think the farmers of this state favor strong price support and a full soil conservation program. I will support such a program and will oppose efforts to undermine the program by such devices as the present “sliding parity" for price supports. “I will support a fair labor law and will seek repeal of the venge ful Taft-Hartley law now on the books aa a result of the efforts of the Republican party. “I believe In freedom and Jus tice for all people. “I believe It la un-American to deny employment, educational, cultural or other opportunities to any citizen because of his race, creed of color. I believe It is the duty of government to enact and enforce laws against this type of discrimination Laws guarantee ing this freedom and Justice can not be enacted in a Senate made up as at present, while the un democratic filibuster Is permitted. I recognize that the Issue of fair employment practices legislation will first arise in the fight on the filibuster, now permitted as a result of the coalition of northern Republicans and southern Dixie crats. “I favor price control measures as long as we must continue the present heavy military expendi tures. Measures like the Republi can- sponsored Capehart Amend ment have raised prices unneces sarily. more than one billion dol lars in the past year. This is one billion dollars out of the pockets of the consumers. "I favor the present foreign policy of combatting the economic sickness of the world by helping all people to increase their pro ductivity and their standards of living, and of challenging aggres sion wherever it appears. I re- cognize that this policy requires great economic sacrifice by the American people, blit I recognize also that whatever the cost it is worth it. Only by such a policy can we stop the spread of com munism and correct the economic causes of war." Correction: It was incorrectly reported in this paper that Mrs C M.

Humphrey Predicts Strong Civil Rights Plank & Ban On Filibusters By WILLIAM V. SHANNON, New York Poet Correspondent Washington, June 21—Sen. Humphrey (D-Minn.) said to day he was optimistic that the Democratic platform committee would strengthen, rather than retreat, from the 1948 platform. “I have hopes that the committee will include a recommenda tion for majority cloture in the platform,” Humphrey told The Post. In 1948 Humphrey led a suc cessful fight on the floor to in- clude a specific endorsement of President Truman’s civil rights program which had been omitted by the majority of the platform committee. Asked if he intended to lead such a fight this year, Humphrey replied, "I wouldn’t want to fight that battle until I come to It. I don’t think this year’s platform committee will seriously consider going back to the generalities of the 1948 plank or to any varia tion of it that would be weaker than our statement four years ago. I have hopes they will go be yond It." Humphrey Is not a member of the platform group. But he plans to make his views known to the committee. Liberal leaders have little doubt that if necessary, they could win a fight as they did in 1948. Eyes Farm, Power Planks Humphrey la also Interested In strengthening the party's plat form on agricultural and public power Issues. He favors price supports at 100 per cent of parity In contrast to the present system of flexible price supports at 70-90 per cant. "Tinlike the Republicans, the Democrats are not expected to Do You Want A Child? Adoption Council Offers Its Assistance The Minnesota Adoption Council is bringing before the community a series of articles setting forth the need for foster homes for children of minority groups. This is the first of the series. The council is asking the community to share their con cern for a group of children who are facing life without the loving care of their own parents. While these children are given temporary care in boarding homes, they are in need of homes from which they will not need to move. This may mean adoption by the family or a long time boarding home arrangement where board payment Is made by an agency. Some have come from broken homes and others are chil dren of unwed mothers who were unable to keep them. There are children of all ages and of different religious faiths - but all have this common need of a family to which they can be long. We are especially concerned about the lack of homes for chil- dren of these groups: Indian. Ne gro. Nisei, Chinese, Mexican, Filipino, and mixed racial back ground. We recognize that there are reasons why many families have not been able to take on the responsibility of caring for a child. They may feel they do not have enough financial security, or per haps their housing is limited, and then again they may not know that tlfese children are available. We feel that our community should know about the needs of these children and that they Grand Matron spoke also. $4.00 Per Year; 10 Cents Per Copy have any difficulty forming a strongly worded foreign policy plank. They are expected to de fend vigorously the UN’s suc cessful intervention In Korea and to tndorv European rearmament. economic aid and Point Four. Humphrey la also likely to play the role of the peacemaker as well as the Warrior at Chicago. He has consistently refused to choose among the leading liberal candidates, Averill Harrtman, Gov. Stevenson and Sen. Kefau ver, (D-Tenn ). He has been per sonally friendly to all three and. praised each one of them. He Is eager to a veld a bitter falling-out among liberals, such as the Taft- Eisenhower civil war Inside the GOP. Wants Liberal Unity Humphrey's view Is that if the liberal forces are united they make up a majority of the party. If they squander their strength In personal factionalism, a con servative candidate may be selec ted or an obscure darkhorae whose views are not well known. Humphrey Intends to limit his peacemaking strictly to the liber al fold. He Is not sympathetic to the efforts of certain professional who are willing to seek party unity and surface harmony at the price of compromise on issues. would want to offer help in working with agencies in meet ing this problem. These children belong to the community. As they get love and security In a home they also give pleasure and hap piness to a family. The commun ity needs normal, healthy, happy children. This Is one way to make this possible.
