Mexican Boy Keeps Promise;
Guards Stranded Plane 14 Days
By th« Associated Press
OKLAHOMA CITY, Oct. 17.—
Dolores, a Mexican lad, adheres
strictly to the good neighbor poli
cy.
That’s what a young Oklahoma
City National Guard flyer says
about him.
Lt. James Risner made a forced
landing recently about 150 miles
south of the Mexican border.
He made it to Tampico on horse
back and by truck. Before he left
he asked Dolores to keep an eye
on the plane until he got back.
Dolores took him for his word.
Two weeks passed before Army
officials ordered the stranded
plane picked up by a cargo plane.
When the six-man crew reached
the fighter plane, Dolores popped
out from tfie shade of the wings.
He’d been there 14 days. The
airmen learned that friends
brought him food and drink while
he kept his promised vigil.
Keeping up their end of the
good neighbor policy, the Ameri
cans gave the lad Army clothes, a
few trinkets from their plane and
$4 in American money.
He was mumbling happily when
they left, Lt. Risner related.

Human Rights
(Continued From First Page/)
leap right out of this world into
paradise,” Senator Neely told the
witness. ‘‘What I wanted to do
was take one step at a time rather
than stand still.”
Senator Neely in insisting that
idealistic legislation would never
get through Congress, said he al
ready was aware there were men
on his committee against the bill
Mrs. McClintock assured him
that the bill even in its present
form “is a tremendous step for
ward and we don't want to appear
ungrateful.”
The only witness testifying
against the bill in principle was
Mrs. Ernest Howard, chairman of
the Public Welfare Committee of
the Federation of Citizens’ Asso
ciations, who said the federation
had not acted on the legislation,
but that her own group, the Co
lumbia Heights Citizens’ Associa
tion, had gone on record as op
posed to the legislation.
Bill Called Superfluous.
Mrs. Howard opposed the bill as
“superfluous, a sin of presump
tion because we already know we
have these rights as already given
us by God.”
When Mrs. Howard went on
to say that Christ did not de
nounce the social evils of His day,
the Bible-quoting Senator inter
rupted her.
"Do you remember that Christ
said: “thou shalt not commit
adultery?” Senator Neely asked
her.
"Isn’t adultery a social evil?”
Mrs. Howard conceded that that
was a “kind of one,” but she added
that she did not think the Senator
should disparage her statement
just because she was taking the
unpopular, position.
Doesn’t Want “Misstatements.”
“I don’t want you to make such
flagrant misstatements,” the Sen
ator told her.
Mrs. Howard said the measure
would “set neighbor against
neighbor and would be just an
other one of those agencies that
cause war.”
Dr. Paul Cook of the American
Veterans Committees, Greater
Washington Area Council, said he
did not believe there would bp as
much opposition to this measure
as to the anti-lynching bill, but
he agreed with Senator Neely
that, if the suggestions of Dr.
Browne and Mrs. McClintock were
Dr. John Rustin, representing
the Washington Federation of
Churches; Isaac Franck, executive
director of the Jewish Community
Council of Washington; John
Duncan, vice president of the
Federation of Civic Associations;
and Gerhard Van Arkel, Demo
cratic Central Committee, all
voiced their support of the meas
ure.
Harry S. Wender, chairman of
the Recreation Board, testifying
as an individual, urged that the
commission be appointed by the
District Commissioners instead of
by the President so the commis
sion would be a part of the Dis
trict government “when the Dis
trict gets home rule.”
