The WAY I SEE IT
★ BY NELL DODSON RUSSELL
Haw. Haw. And Haw. This writer got a grim guffaw out of two
items in last week’s news. One came from a column written by Howard
Rushmore in the New York Journal-American of Wednesday, February
18th. Rushmore, telling how unsuccessful the Commies
have been in recruiting Negroes in Harlem, said that
in order to see that the Comrades stay out of Harlem
and Harlem organizations, “a group of prominent Har
mlem residents have organized the Negro Anti-Com
munist League. This group plans to serve as a
receiving center for information on Communist in
filtration methods and guarantees the Reds a cold
reception whenever they appear.”
By gad, aren’t some people getting brave here
of late. Seems to me the time for bravery was in
the 1940’s when the Comrades were being ruddled
NELL RUSSELL an( j pampered by some of our beat bleeding hearts
and leading citizens. During those years anyone
who tried to speak out with a little common sense on the subject
of Communism was branded as a crackpot, a hysterical reactionary
and what have you.
I don’t know who the “prominent Harlem residents” are in this
new group but I have news for ’em. The Commie movement in this
country has retreated underground except for some stalwarts left
out in the open for nuisance value. These bums were working in the
open in the 1940's when they had the goodwill and encouragement of
some mighty powerful people, just how powerful still remains to be
revealed.
Since last November it has become “safe” to be known as an anti-
Commie. Now everybody wants to get into the act. Looks as if it will
be as fashionable to be anti-Communist in the 1950's as it was to be
pro-Communist pinko in the 1940’5.
Aunt Tabatha here can afford to sit back and watch. She and
a few others were playing it practically solo to a sparse audience
in the American theatre ten years ago when the cash customers
were attending the burlesque put on at the Roosky follies on the
other side of the street. The Comrades put on quite a strip tease.
They took off just enough to entice the suckers without exposing
the true quality of the epidermis underneath.
” *The other item which grimly tickled the funnybone of Yours
Truly was the statement reportedly made by the NAACP’s Roy Wilkins
anent the much-publicized “deal” which allegedly exempts New York
cops from FBI scrutiny in police brutality cases.
Mr. Wilkins in the World-Telegram of Tuesday, February 17th,
was reported as saying:
“New Yorkers who have imagined the violations of civil rights
of citizens by police is a pattern of some other section of the country
but not of the nation’s greatest city will be humiliated and outraged
that their Police Department has sought suspension of federal
authority over cases arising in this city.
“There are no exceptions to the enforcement of civil rights.
... A violation in New York is just as heinous as one in Georgis
or Mississippi.”
Well, dearie, you’ll recall the printer's ink was hardly dry on
the column Yours Truly wrote about New York cleaning up ita
own yard before pointing a disapproving finger at neighbors down
Dixie way, when Mr. Wilkins came out with this gem.
Every once in a while the Harlem newspapers have headlined cases
of alleged police brutality. These headlines were followd by mass meet
ings with people demanding this and that. But as far as I know there
has been no unified, persistent campaign on the part of Harlem leaders
to actually do away with police brutality. There has been a lot of noise
followed by little action that could be translated into terms of good
to the uptown community.
Fred Woltman. the World Telegram's ace newsman, broke the
story of the alleged police “deal." The present mess has two inherent
dangers. Cops working the Harlem precincts may be ordered to
bend over backward to accommodate and treat gently prisoners and
offenders. I worked a police beat and I know that some of these
punks and hoods have respect only for the working end of a night
stick. Negro cops, aware of this, don’t take any foolishness. Whit#
cops working the Harlem heat not only have to contend with
toughies but also with the bitter race prejudice that some Negroes
feel at the sight of a white face.
I have seen punks deliberately put on the “Whatta ya gonna’ do
about it, copper?” act. The dope addicts are particularly dangerous.
There are instances when a policeman or detective has to get rough.
If the present situation means that police officers are to treat all
prisoners with kid gloves, it may lead to trouble.
The other factor is the possibility of a race riot deliberately
instigated by subversive forces drumming up a false “police brutal
ity” case.
I’olice brutality is no new issue in New York and in Harlem.
In the words of the NAACI”s Mr. Wilkins, New York has plenty
to do without looking southward.
A new traiimark in the motion picture industry was put on
exhibition at Loew’s State Theatre on Broadway last Wednesday.
“Bwana Devil,” the first full-length three-dimensional picture, opened
to capacity-plus audiences.
“Bwana Devil” is a grade B type motion picture about the
attempt to complete a railroad in Africa against the threat of man
eating lions. The lions are the most unferncious and mangy you'll
see. Arch Oboler w rote, directed and produced “Bwana Devil." The
story is unimportant. The audiences at Loew’s State are so busy
looking at three-dimension and trying to keep on Polaroid glasses
in paper rims that the business on the screen, story-wise, means
nothing.
Maybe some of you will remember “Lights of New York,” the first
full length talking picture. It was crude compared to the talking pic
ture of today. “Bwana Devil” will be remembered as the first crude
attempt at full length 3-D films.
“Cinerama” is the only 3-D film so far that doesn’t have to lie
viewed with Polaroid glasses. However, Hollywood is working fran
tically to complete new processes and within a matter of months will
be releasing 3-D films like mad.
One of television’s Big Names arrived at the studio so swacked for
a recent show that it took a half hour of black coffee, ammonia
sniffing, cold towels to get him in shape to go before the cameras. He
did the show with only a slight slurring of words then passed out flat
on his face. Some stuff.
