Four Colored Leaders
Ask Bilbo's Unseating
In Radio Program
Four Negro leaders last night de
manded the unseating of Senator
Bilbo. Democrat, of Mississippi, in
a radio reply, over Station WOL and
the Mutual network, to the Senator’s
speech August 9 on the “Meet the1
Press” program.
The Senator was charged vrtfh
having disqualified himself from
taking the oath of office by swear
ing long-life loyalty to the Ku Klux
Klan.
“He cannot be loyal to the Klan
and to the Constitution of the
United States at the same time,”
declared Charles H. Houston, chair
man of the National Legal Com
mittee of the National Association
for the Advancement of Colored
People.
Hits “Appeals to Violence.”
Mr. Houston also maintained that
Senator Bilbo “by his appeals to
violence and suppression of the
Negro vote in his primary campaign
prevented a free election by the
qualified voters of Mississippi.”
The Senator, in his August 9
broadcast, had admitted member
ship in the Ku Klux Klan and said
he had made campaign speeches
urging white voters to visit Negro
homes the night* before the election
to "persuade” them not to vote.
Such measures constitute “intimi
dation and lynch-law,” contended
Thomas Richardson, international
vice president of the United Public
Workers of America (CIO).
Turning to the significance of
the Senator's position as "mayor of
Washington." Mr. Houston declared:
“The spectacle of a man who
preacnes race nairea neaaing tne
committee which governs the Capi
tal city would make propaganda
for all foreign enemies of this coun
try, even if it did nothing else.”
Sees Nazi Parallel.
Dr. Max Yergan, executive di
rector of the National Negro Con
gress. drew a parallel between the
discriminatory policies advocated by
the Senator from Mississippi against
Negroes and those which the Nazis
had practiced against the Jews in
Germany.
“The Negro is simply the first
victim on Bilbo's list,” Dr. Yergan
predicted. "Bilbo, if not checked,
would take away the civil rights
from the very white people he
screams about so much. America
would have Bilboism in place of the
Constitution.”
Dr. Joseph L. Johnson, chairman
of the Washington Committee of
the Southern Conference for Hu
man Welfare, acted as moderator.
Reds Boost German Rations
Three Days Betore Election
By th« Associated Press
BERLIN. Aug. 30.—Three days
before the first elections scheduled
in the Russian occupation zone,
the Soviet military government to
day announced an increase in food
rations for German coal miners
there.
This was the latest in a series of
benefits announced in the last sev
eral weeks while the Soviet-backed
Socialist Unity party has been wag
ing a bitter election campaign
against the Conservative Christian
Democratic Union. The Socialist
Unity party's campaign has frankly,
featured promises of more such
benefits if it wins impressively.
The new' rations for Russian zone:
miners gives them a peak of 3,725
calories daily. This is still below
the peak daily ration for miners in
the American zone, w'hich early this
month was set at 4.000 calories.
In addition the American zone
miners get incentive rations of
!;o.uor and tobacco.
