Shame ia a great restraint upon sinners
at first; but that soon falls off: and when
men have once lost their innocence, their
modesty is not like to be long troublesome
to them. For impudence comes with vice,
and grows up with it. Lesser vices do not
banish all shame and modesty; but great
abominable crimes harden men's foreheads,
and make them shameless. When men have
the heart to do a very bad thing, they sel
dom want the face to bear it out.—Tillot

"Know Your Candidate" series of
TV. broadcasts Wednesday Stpt.
9 at 4 p. m. with Senator Edward
Thye, Republican candidate for
V. S. Senator being queried by
three well known citizens.
The panel which fired questions
at Thye was composed of George
Peterson, associate editorial page
editor of the Minneapolis STAR,
Dr. Wiliam G. Kubicek. associate
professor University of Minnesota
and secretary of the State DFL
state central committee and Cecil
Newman editor of the Spokesman
and Recorder papers.
Newman asked Thye if he did
not think it would be necessary
to change Senate rules as pro
posed by the Democratic national
to halt filibusters platform if civil
rights legislation was to voted
upon. Thye described the various
filibusters of the past sessions of
Congress and agreed that some
change had to be made.
The editor also asked Senator
Thye about his vote on the Tide
lands Oil bill. The Senator de
fended his vote on the matter
which he said was highly “con
troversial” on the grounds that
he thought the states had a right
to certain mineral wealth In the
waters of the respective states.
Dr. Kubicek questioned the Sen
ator on the 90 Tc farm parity and
his vote on various agricultural
bills Thye said he wouldn't go
along with certain farm legisla
tion because the dairy and poul
try fanners were not protected by
the bils offered In Congress.
George Peterson asked Senator
Thye what he thought about the
recent farm speeches of Eisen
hower and Stevenson. Mr Thye
admitted that there was little
basic difference between the views
of the two candidates.

of the Associated Negro Credit

Villa Looks Over
Candidate Stevenson
At Kasson Meeting
I was thrilled beyond words to
spend a day at Kasson-Dodge Cen
ter last Saturday.
With my press pass I was able
to meet Gov. Adlai Stevenson at
the Rochester airport as he and
his party (at least 50 newspaper
men) arrived shortly before noon.
It was a thrill because the night
before I had listened to him on
the TV while he spoke in Denver.
Senator Hubert Humphrey and
Orville Freeman walked out of the
plane just a few seconds before
Stevenson. There must have been
about 2.000 people there to greet
the tiovemor.
After a fifteen minute stay at
the airport the Governor and his
party along with newspapermen
from all over the state in caravan
fashion drove about twenty miles
to Kasson. Governor Stevenson
stopped for about twenty minutes
at the Mayo Clinic.
Sitting with me on my way to
Kasson was one of the countries
most able newspaper guys - James
Reston of the New York Times
Jimmy (He insisted that I call
him that instead of Mr. Reston)
has been traveling with the
Stevenson party the past few
weeks. He looked rather tired but
relaxed during the twenty odd
mile ride to Kasson and felt like

He was saying that some
months ago the Democratic paper
—The New York Timej came out
for Dwight D. Eisenhower “The
boss thought Eisenhower would
stick to his ideals and lean to the
liberal Republican movement. But
in recent weeks the paper is some
what worried about some of the
company Eisenhower is keeping.”
In short the paper was against
Taft at the convention but was
pleased with a liberal like Eisen
hower. It is a known fact that
Eisenhower has been cool to Gov
ernor Dewey, warming up to Taft
and accepting McCarthy along
with other reactionaires. From my
conversation with Jimmy Reston,
I wouldn’t be surprised that with
in the next few weeks, the Times
makes a switch and comes out for
Governor Stevenson.

Cozy Inn Was
Not So Cozy To
Weary Travelers
I left Minneapolis September 6
to attend an AME conference in
Cedar Rapids. lowa. Along with
me went my three daughters,
Kathryn, Jane and Jean. We had
some car trouble enroute and by
the time we reached Waterloo,
lowa, the children were hungry
and suggested we get something
to eat.
We stopped on Logan Avenue,
which was the highway we were
traveling, and attempted to go
into a restaurant called Cosy
Inn We were met at the door and
told the place was "closing.”
We turned away only to bump
into two gentlemen who were
about to enter the place and in
formed them that the place was
closing. The men, with a rather
surprised look on their faces
walked away.
Daughter Kathryn suggested to
me that the place may be closing
only to Negroes. So I decided to
drive around a few blocks, and
upon returning to the place we
found Cozy Inn doing business as
usual. We got out of our car and
were In the place before anyone
could atop us. I ordered some
hamburgers and was told we
would have to "take them out.”
I insisted we wanted to eat
them in the place but the waitress
said she could order them only If
we wanted to take them out. I
asked her to please serve us be
cause the children were tired and
hungry as we were traveling.
The hesitant waitress ordered
the hamburgers, but specified
them "to go.” We sat down in a
booth. When the waitress brought
the food to us it was prepared in
paper bags ‘to go.” We ordered
pop. She said “we don’t have cold
pop.” I asked If we could please
have cold water. She snapped at
us but did bring the water.
We sat grimly and ate the
hamburgers because we were
famished. The waitress locked the
front door and as a result turned
away a dozen or more couples
who wanted to come In for food.
She also directed customers al
ready In the place out the back
door as they finished eating. My
daughter, Kathryn, ordered lee
cream for dessert but we were
told there was no Ice cream In the

myself, here we are, north of the
Mason-Dixon line, in a place
called Cozy Inn, with bright neon
sign on the outside but on the In
side, for Americans of color,
things were not so rosy. They
could have food only to take out,
they could not have cold beverage,

final election by P. 8. Popovich,
who received 1,314 votes to Hill’s

Popovich may give Hill a good
run because Negro voters and
other minority people resent Hill’s
opposition to a state FEPC law.
For some reason, this was not
used against Hill in the primaries,
but It is sure to be a final election
campaign issue.
Hill has long been associated
with the development of Halite

financially some Negro charities.
