THE PEOPLE'S NEWSPAPER
Pope Names
Negro Cardinal
The College of Cardinals of the
Roman Catholic Church numbers
a record 85. Pope John XXIII re
cently named two Asians, 4 Euro
peans and 1 African as princes
o: this religious body. For the
Philippines and Japan the Pope’s
appointments give them their
first native cardinals and de
creases the predominance of
Italians on the august body.
Laurian Rugambwa, bishop of
Rutabo Tanganyika, 47, is the
second youngest cardinal.
The new cardinals appointed
by the Pope are: Archbishop Ru
fino J. Santos of Manila; Arch
bishop Peter Tatsuo Doi of Tok
yo; Archbishop Bernard Jan Al
frink of Utrecht, the Nether
lands; Archbishop Joseph Lefe
bvre, of Bourges, France, and two
Italians, Luigi Traglia, Titular
archbishop of Cesarea di Pales
tina, and Antonio Bacci, secre
tary of briefs to the princes, a
Vatican title. The ratio in the
College of Cardinals gives Ital- ;
ians 33 and non-Italians 52.
During the week of March 28th j
it was announced from the Vati
can, the consistory of installation
will be held.
The other cardinal from Africa
is Bishop Teodosio Clements de
Gouveia of Lourenco Marques.
He is Portugese.
It is thought that Bishop Ru
gambwa was selected because of
the strong trends toward nation
alism and native pride which is
found throughout Africa.
The Roman Catholic Church
j again emphatically restates its j
opposition to discrimination and j
! takes a step in promoting racal
j racial equality in the appoint- j
ment of this African cardinal.

thundered approval of the gold
en voiced Mahalia, who had hyp
notized them with her selections.
Especially effective were the
well known “Didn’t It Rain” and
“He’s Got the Whole World In
His Hands.”
For music lovers, the two ac
companists, Mildred Falls, pian
ist. and Willie J. Webb, organist,
provided a secondary concert.
Their background tones for Miss

Statewide Efforts
Fail Temporarily
On Tuesday, March 8, a tense
gallery in the Arizona House of
Representatives witnessed a des
perate effort to set the stage for
public accommodations.
Representative Carl Sims, Sr.
(D-Maricopa) made a forthright
appeal to a resisting House to
dismiss all committees concern
ed with House Bill 106, in order
to assure debate and vote.
Because there was not unani
mous opinion regarding the wis
dom of this move, the pledged
liberal vote was divided. Many
explained that their negative
vote to Mr. Sims’ motion meant
that they opposed precedent and
altering of rules.
A bit of semantics was wit
nessed when many members gave
the impression that they were
awaiting orderly process when
the County Affairs Committee
would on Wednesday take up the
bill.
Many telegrams were sent by
individuals and organizations to
this committee chaired by Charles
O. Bloomquist (D-Cochise) ask
ing for the bill to be reported
out.
On Wednesday, March 9, the
County Affairs Committee by a
vote of 12 to 3 failed to report
ouc the bill. With this action died
the hope for a House Bill 106 for
1960. (See editorial P. 4).
A similar bill in the Senate
failed to get out of committee.
o
Baths For
Beatrice Jackson
Since the appearance of our
story on Beatrice Jackson in the
March 3rd issue, the SUN is
happy to announce information
has been received as to where
Mrs. Jackson may take mineral
baths in the state.
We wish to thank Mr. A. L.
Reed, chairman of Church and
Community Coordination Com
mittee, NAACP, Yuma, Arizona,
who wrote us of two places in
the state where there is no dis
crimination.
Mr. Reed tells us that Mrs.
Jackson can take baths at Agua
Caliente Springs, 17 miles north
of Sentinel, off Highway 80, op
erated by Rev. James Coleman,
and at the Yuma Mineral Bath
House, Yuma, Arizona on High
way 95, operated by John Fay.
Because of these distances,
Mrs. Jackson will not be able
to take advantage of the baths
for some time. She is, how
ever, making plans and hopes to
be able to take them not later
than June. We are happy to know
that baths are available to Ne
groes within the state. We still
feel, however, that it is unfor
tunate that discrimination makes
it necessary for Mrs. Jackson to
go so far. There are many min
eral baths in the Phoenix area,
and we would like to see one of
1 these open their doors to her.
