ISAAC JONES
i On April 6, 1959 an alert young
jman applied at the local Urban
(League offices for a job. This
“was during the time the City of
tPhoenix needed many police re
cruits.
| - Former Mayor Jack Williams
jhad asked the League to form a
committee to find recruits. Isaac
Jones was the type the commit
•tee was looking for.
I He was encouraged, guided and
jtold that the committee would
island with him all the way, pro
vided he did his part.
: One evening this week, this
waited for Jones in the
room where police officers as
semble. At the exact time, this
(serious, fine looking young po
liceman walked in. He had dig
inity and the uniform matched
the man.
Immediately it was evident
from the other men that Jones
was respected and no one seem
ed to be aware he was Negro. He
walked up to a machine which
gave the latest information on
What was happening in the city—
police-wise. He read and the men
Wrote. Teamwork, acceptance,
harmony was the key.

between youth and the family
circle. Actually the needs that
must be answered for a large
poition of youth the half
grown—fall well outside the area
of family influence. What these
4ralf-grown youngsters need is
the exertion of a general com
munity influence on the envir
onment around them an in
fluence that will minimize the
Cvil and maximize the better as
pects of that environment.”
• As for housing, Mr. Granger
said, ‘‘Every time I see a thou
sand - unit, high - rise, low - cost
bousing development go up in
New York City I feel not plea
sure over the prospect of new
liousing facilities for those who
freed them desperately, but rath
er anger over the callous stu
pidity with which city planners
continue to destroy family and
neighborhood values in order to
Save land values.”
■' In conclusion, Mr. Granger
Said, “Has the time not come
When the American people . . .
pan look coolly at this divisive
factor of race ... as to under
stand the irreparable damage in
flicted by racial segregation not
only upon the personalities of
Colored young people who are
deprived from the free man’s op
portunity in an otherwise free
society, but also upon the chil
dren of those vex-y ones who have
established the aggressive pat
tern. who fight to retain racial
discrimination?”

assignments, after a period of
briefing, and Jones was off
alorxe into the night in cruiser
1146 to insure peace and safety
while we slept.
The Force feels that Jones is
well trained. During his 6 months
probation period which ended
last Decembei\ he was broken in
by officers Hugh Harbin and Ted
Berry. Most of Isaac’s work has
been in the southeast and west
areas. |
Isaac Jones was born in Beau
fort. South Carolina 22 years ago,
and he received high school edu
cation there.
Productive years were spent in
Toledo, Ohio where he attended
Stanzenberger Business College
and University of Toledo, major
ing in accounting.
He and his wife, Eva, live at
1539 E. Monroe.
Currently Jones is taking a
course in Sapnish at North Phoe
nix High. This language skill will
corne in handy because of the
many Mexican citizens he meets.
Jones and Chief Thomas think
there is room on the Force for
many more young men. Some
day, the SUN will pay tribute to
the Negro pioners in the Phoenix
police department who made it
possible for Jones to succeed.
It pays to look your best

Well Folks, Hello again!
Sems like Old Home Week to
be writing to you again in care
! of the SUN. Congratulations are
indeed due Doc Benson and his
competent staff for the excep
tionally fine newspaper that the
reorganized SUN is proving it
self to be.
I'm glad to again have the op
portunity to write to you of my
news and views, some sense and
some nonsense.
For instance lt isn't often
i thet one gets a chance at some
thing for nothing well almost
nothing! Here is how! We have
a half gallon jug on the counter
here at Reddy's Corner with a
sign that reads "Pennies to Keep
a Boy Out of the Jug." The jug
is now full of coins, and we have
started a guessing contest. All
that you have to do to get in on
it is donate a quarter and make
a guess as to the amount of mon
ey in the Jug. The person guess
ing closest to the amount gets a
new five dollar bill that I have
put in the kitty plus half of the
j quarters. All the rest of the mon
ey goes to the Arizona Boys'
Rranch at Queen Creek. Isn't
that almost getting a chance at
something for nothing? Wouldn't
you have donated a quarter to
that worthy cause anyway? Cer*
tainly would have, and it isn't
j too late yet. In fact, we won't
open the jug of coins until 2:30
Easter Sunday afternoon. Why i
don't you make your guess now >
then plan to be at Reddy's i
Corner and help supervise ~ ihe4
counting of the coins Easter'
Sunday?
As always.
Just Reddy
