OHIO Brotherhood Week February 22 to 29 John S. Knight, chairman of the Newspaper committee of the National conference of Christians and Jews, has addressed a message to all newspaper editors asking their fullest cooperation in mak ing the nation-wide observance of American Brotherhood Week, Feb ruary 22 to 29, a grand success. This observance is being fostered by the National conference. Mr. Knight rightly calls for a& educational effort on the part of tike press, and for them not to treat Brotherhood week as Na tional Apple week or Paint and Clean up week. "It is rather a year 'round program of mass edu cation designed to illustrate how our citizens of many creeds and racial heritages can be brought to better understanding of their mu tual repsonsibilities." Brotherhood is a two-way prop osition. Everyone knows that white Wolverines Continue Their Winning Streak By Jimmie N. Joi^es The Dunbar Wolverines are within two wins from the city championship by taking Fairview in tow Wednesday night in the "Big Eight' 'high schopl carnival. Never before in the history of the scholastic race has a team shown so much as these "Little Brown Men" of Summit street who are playing their initial season in the City league. Having won over Parker 39 to 32 Chaminade 31 to 21 Stivers, holders of the city championship for two years, 30 to 276Kiser 49 to 15 and their lat est victims being the highly touted Fairview high 46 to 29. Official records show the following tabula tions,tions, Dunbar, 195 points as against their opponents total of 124. Responsible for this remark able showing is Ralph (Bo) Farr, all City candidate for the guard post, and Sage Brown, lanky for ward who leads the scoring for the Blue and White at this writing. Rounding out the quintet are: Charles Francis, guard Ezariah Smith, another forward, and Os car Dominick, talk lanky center. Coach Luther White made no mis take when he said he had the best five in the race as has been prov en in every game. The Walverines show their most christians are lackin in the true application of the word, but few people realize that minority groups are very often guilty of failing to act in fraternal manner. This generaly results from an erron eous view that the best way to combat prejudice is to be preju diced yourself. This is a wrong view and only makes more dif ficult the fight against all types of prejudice. We as Negroes certainly do not want to relax in our struggle to attain first class citizenship, nor do we want to become less mili tant in combatting instances of segregation and discrimination, but we can learn to be more tol erant of those who would be our friends, would we accept them wholeheartedly. It should be our prime duty to lavish brotherhood on all, let the chips fall where the may. devastating attack when they smothered the Kiser lads 49 to T5 as the Dunbar Menter sent in his entire second team. In the game the Wolverines led 13 to 2 at the first period 25 to3 at the half, 34 to 10 at the three-quarter pole, and picked up 15 more in the final stage while all the Kis ers could muster off the Blue and White second team was five for a total of 15 for the night's work. The "Brownies" need only to hurdle Roosevelt and Wilbur Wright to win the city flag.

(AN P)—Support of the National As sociation for the Advancement of Colored People was given to the European Recovery program by Walter White, executive secretary of the NAACP, speaking before the senate committee on Foreign Relations today. Mr| White declared: "Unless the United States and all other na tions which are able to do so co operate in feeding and helping to rehabilitate war devasted areas of the earth, the physical suffering and the obliteration of hope all over the earth will amost inevit ably lead us into another war whose consequences, in the light of the splitting of the atom and of a germ warfare are too fright ening to contemplate." Reminding the United States senate that hunger is as painful to brown, yellow and black stom achs as it is to white ones, the executive secretary urged the ex tention of aid not only to the coun tries of Europe but laso to the needy in Asia, Africa and the Ca ribbean. Mr. White also asked that the European nations in cluded in the recovery plan be re quired to adopt programs under which their colonies would speed ily be given the right of self de (continued on page 4) United Nations Hands Tied On Minorities Dr. Rayford W.

This arti cle prohibits the intervention of the United Nations in affairs which are determined to be ex clusively within the domestic prov ince of the sovereign states. As Dr. Logan indicated any nation could prevent United Nations ac tion against them in their ill treatment of minorities by insist ing that the minority problems were stirctly sovereign domstic problems. Particulary in the Uni ter States where minority prob lems are the most vital issues in the country. This was illustrated by the violent reaction by south erners and do-nothing reaction by northerners on the 10 point civil rights charter just handed con gress by Truman. *st Church News and Mrs. J.
