ARIZONA TRIBUNE, November 28, 1958
Page 2 ARIZONA TRIBUNE EDWARD BANKS, Publisher ELOISE BANKS, Assistant Editor 2137 E» BROADWAY BR 5-2301 EDITORIAL . COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS This season affords one an opportunity to stop and think of the pleasures of the year. We are sorely pressed for a moment of self appraisal. Life has become a crowd ed schedule from sunrise to sunset, and our lives seem packed with problems. Americans should count their blessings before complaining. Our citizens were able to enjoy hearty dinners while more than two thirds of the world's population almost starved. ' The cold war is menacing hot again, but this soil has been spared the scourge of German bombardments. Our buildings have not been razed or destroyed by block bust ers. No town was forced to rebuild after months of interminable shelling. Though many are still unemployed, the monthly salary or wages of one individual is higher than most of the workers in other parts of the world could earn in a year. Our country is not plagued by epidemics that kill thousands. Scientists have perfec ted vaccines, x-ray treatments and other medicines so fast that the life span in the United States is double that of Asia or As- . rica. Modern machines help construct wide freeways and spacious homes. The people of the city don't carry buckets of earth from excavations to dumping areas. Huge bulldozers move tons, but in China boys and girls toil twelve hours moving dirt for less than the cost of a loaf of bread. We gloat or wail over recent election returns, while armies of freedom-hungry men die for a chance to' improve their political heritage. We can be thankful that we live in a country where free speech, the right to choose one's religion, freedom from dic tators, and a full stomach are blessings enjoyed by all.

PATTERSON Lodge No. 477 1007 S. 7th Avenue SIGHTS AND SOUNDS by Eloise Banks Savory whiffs of glazed hams, bronzed turkeys, spicy pies, and fluffy rolls wafted over the Val ley Thursday. Eager diners threw calorie charts away and caution to the wind as they slip ped hurriedly in their seats a round the steaming table. Tables creaked with the load of succu lent puddings, salads, vegetables, and meats. Eaters attacked their plates with zest and quickly the piles of delicious foods decreased as if by magic. Second helpings were offered without a thought of that all-important waistline. Dieters gave their mistreated stomachs a real holiday. At this time of the year, the makers of Unitrim, Regimen, Wate-off, Lose-it,TafonandSlim can begin to take inventory or go on vacation until December 26 rolls past. Even Jack Spratt’s wife eats fattening goodies while Jack is watching the scales. I am tempted to tamper with those bathroom scales. Watch the scales, girl9*—figures don’t lie. The figure in the dress may tell you one half-truth, but the figures on the scales tell the aw ful truth. A few pounds a day may be fun in the mouth, but it’s mur der in the purse. Reducing aids are expensive. Trim cigarettes cost twice as much as the regular ones. Low calorie dishes are so costly that the thought of the price should do the trick. Bread for thinner waistlines is sliced thin enough to see through. Machines range in price from $lO to S3OO. The cost of a new wardrobe amazes you, especially after saying to yourself or spouse for weeks "I haven’t a decent dress to wear.” In spite of all df these argu ments against eating and enjoy ing the Thanksgiving meal, I sighted turkey and sank same. After several visits to our friends' homes, I needed help to. walk. The best sights and sounds passed over and around the table. “Excuse me—where is that bicarbonate of soda?

J % Television cables in Alabama were tampered with when Harry Belafonte appeared on the Steve Allen Show. Wonder if the Trendex ratings will note the absence of Dixie viewers? Views,Previews & Reviews * by EDWARD BANKS Since its founding in 1910, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People has attempted to protect the civil •] \ rights of Negroes. During the past eleven years, it has worked with care and zeal to influence civil rights legislation on Feder al and state levela. A lobby has been maintained in Washington, D.C., to appeal to leaders of Senate and Congress. Its work is not fully appreciated or known. In 1914, Mary W, Ovington prepared a brief history of the organization. She stated how the race riots in Springfield, Illinois, shocked the nation. A newspaper reporter, William Walling, de scribed the atrocities and chal- the citizens to action. He met with Dr. Henry Moskowitz and Mary W, Ovington in 1909 in a small room of a New York apartment. This was the beginning of the NAACP. No minutes were kept of this meeting. Mr. Walling be lieved that the Negro was treated in the United States with greater inhumanity than the Jew was treated in Russia. Other opin ions were voiced and the plan ners decided to issue a call for a national conference on the cen tennial of Abraham Lin coln’s birthday, Feb. 12, 1909. Mr. O. G, Villard, president of the N. Y. Evening Post Com pany drafted the message and gave it wide publicity. ’‘Silence under these conditions ClovU Polk ; BEAL ESTATE SALESMAN 1 : Williams & Jones i i Realty Co. £R 6-2401 LeROY'S Shoe Repair U-Do-It Laundry & Dry Cleaning 1614 E.

The indif ference of the North is already responsible for more than one assault upon democracy, and ev ery such attack reacts as un favorably upon whites a$ upon blacks. Discrimination once per mitted cannot be bridled; re cent history in the South shows that in forging chains for the Negroes the white voters are forging chains for themselves... this government cannot ex ist half-slave and half-free any better today than it could in 1861.” The call was signed by lead ers white and Negro, Northern ers and Southerners, including Jane Adams, Chicago soqial worker; W.E.B.Dußois, Atlan ta educator; William Dean How wells, New York writer; Rabbi E.G.Hirsch; C.F.Thwing, presi dent of Western Reserve Univer sity and many others. Four mass meetings were held, thousands of pamphlets were distributed, and member ships were numbered in the hun dreds. In May 1910, a second conference was held and the per manent body was officially or ganized known as the National Association For The Advance ment of Colpred People.
