The arrival of the Freedom Train in Illinois comes at a time when the Illinois Interracial Commission is focussing atten tion upon strengthening civil rights throughput the state. As part of the rededication to free dom in Illinois communities the Commission, speaking in behalf of more than a half-million citi zens belonging to minority ra cial and religious groups, calls upon all Illinois citizens to strengthen our American herit age of freedom. Going back into the heritage of Illinois from the Northwest Territory agreement and our three constitutions of 1818, 184S and 1870, and the Illinois Bill of Rights, the Commission in a realistic report shows how recent violations of the letter and spi ported and ways of strengthen ing our American heritage of freedom outlined. By action of the Illinois Inter lacial Commission last week, these reports are now being mailed to all mmebers or me li-i | inois Legislature, to officers of I Lhe executive departments and judiciary of state and counties, and to all sheriffs, state’s attor neys and mayors of the larger | cities. In this way, it is hoped that all government officials in the state may be helped to ach- | ieve a more complete democratic | operation of their reeponsibili-1 ties, and that freedom and civil j liberties may be fully enjoyed by all residents of Illinois, irrespec | ti ve of race, color, creed, nation- 1 al origin or ancestry, i' rit of these ‘ founding documents : have tended to weaken the grip i of Illinois” citizens upon these treasured democratic liberties, j Due to war excitements and post ; war hysteria, many citizens have ; been and others are now being j I denied their full civil rights, i | These phases of the operation of I our democracy are carefully re in .announcing these activities, j today, Dr. Marti Hayes Bickliam, Continued On Page Three Hope For Non-Jim Crow Theatre In D. C. Fading WASHINGTON, D. C—Well, it1 looks as if all efforts to secure the Balasco theatre ihejm will pass on to the winds, unless some other means can be found to se cure funds. The American Na tionai Theatre and Academy, had hoped to take it over and operate it on a non-segregation policy. But their experts estimate the cost of renovation would amount to more than four hundred thou sand dollars. Since the ten year lease that the government is offering on the theatre, it can be cancelled after five years, if the govern ment should decide to build on the site, but the deal to the American National theotre and Academy would be extremely ■ risky. Of course, money invested | could probably be recouped with a long-term lease; but capital could not be expected to take the chance pf operating me theatre under such conditions. _ VOTE REPUBLICAN — In 1789 the attorney general of the United States was paid $1,500 ^ ycar and he was expected to provide liis own office, fuel, sta tionery and clerk.—Putnam (Tex.)

Immedi ately after he knocked out Jersey Joe Walcott in the 11th round of their battle last Wednesday night in Yankee stadium. Louis an nounced abdication of the croyrn he held for 11 years and three days. Louis won his title in Chicago June 22, 1937 when he knocked. out Jim Braddock. Now he has defended that honor 25' times. He has ruled longer than any heavy weight in history. Louis had said during his train ing" at Pompton Lakes that, win or lose, this was his last fight. Dfli^reithrated decision unques was approved by tjie crowd of / 42,667. The Bomber’s career has been so tremendously spectacular it is fittign he , should that which na one man ever was able to seize. PRIDE DICTATED RETURN BOUT Louis might have quit the ring earlier* save that pride dictated a return match in 1946 tfith Billy Conn immediately afte£ the war. The one time 1755 pound cham pion, in their 1941 battle, had been beaten in the 13th round after outboxing the champion. Last December Louis received a divided decision in 15 rounds over Walcott. Again, pride re turned Louis to the drudgery of conditioning. The Bomber would show that no man, and certainly not a man of his own age, could win. Thus, Wednesday night the thousands in Yankee stadium Continued On Page Three _ VOTE REPUBLICAN — Fight Agamst Heart Disease Plan Discussed Plans for the formation of new local heart associations to reach more individuals, regardless of race or color, and the broadening of research to accelerate the na tionwide campaign against dis eases of the heart and circulation were discussed at the Twenty fourth Annual Meeting of the American Heart Association, this week.
