The Hartford Chronicle Page Three CANDIDATE OUSTED IN GEORGIA SCOTT WITHDRAWS Atlanta, Ga. Georgia went through some rather severe . emotional pangs a few days ago when it was discovered that one of the candidates for County Coroner in Atlanta was not a member of the favored group. And because 23 native sons of Georgia were on the same tick et, there was more than a mild possibility that this undesirable candidate might turn up the winner. This disconcerting candidate by name is Aurelius S. Scott, a former West Virginia State Col lege professor. Mr. Scott was called in by the Fulton County Democratic executive commit tee and in a three hour session was implored to withdraw from the field. It is alleged that the committee secured from Mr. Scott a signed statement that he would withdraw from the race. But later an attorney suggested to the committee the fact that any such agreement might con stitute a Federal offense be cause it involved the matter of two or more people conspiring to withhold the rights of an other citizen. The committee tore the agree ment up post haste which leaves i the whole matter in a most con fusing situation. Confusing be cause unless the white candi dates can agree to support only one or two of their candidates, despite the fact Mr. Scott agreed to withdraw, he may still find himself the elected Coroner. -STTT" CENTRAL STATIONERY CO.

BISHOPS SHAME CHRISTIANITY JUDGE CAUSTIC New York One of the most unseemingly Court actions was concluded in New York City the other day, that it has been the public's displeasure to ob serve in many years. The occasion was a grand squabble between Bishops of the A.M.E. Church over the dis tribution of power and jurisdic tion of New York. This whole matter could not be settled amicably within the council of Bishops and therefore the whoJe matter had to be aired in the Courts. The caustic remarks made by the presiding judge, Samuel Dickstein, seemed to be pretty indicative of public opinion in this matter. Judge Dickstein had the following to say to the litigants : "It seems to me that this whole matter could have been resolved among yourselves like Christian brethren instead of airing your disagreements in public for all the world to see and "hear. I hope you can find a way to do this in the future." The findings of Judge Dick stein in this whole controversy will perhaps take weeks. Weeks in which this whole pall must hand over the innocent members of this denomination in New York.

WE FILL PRESCRIPTIONS MAN TO MAN by Dick Stimson Horse-and-Buggy Diplomats Many wise men have warned that we must learn as much about the science of people as we now know about the science of things. The first ones who should study human relations are the world's diplomats. We are all acquainted with people who are so stubborn that they refuse to consider another person's arguments. They don't really listen to anyone else they just pause to think up their next retort. Many people have closed minds. It seems that we all are a little like that. Because this is' true, the special commission which was appointed to study control of atomic energy took a quick look at the reasons people can't agree. They decided in advance to keep their minds open and consider every sugges tion. Wouldn't it be much better if Byrnes, Molotov, and Bevin had an agreement to listen to each other and look at all points of view? Don't the people of the world have a right to demand that kind of common sense? People Like People This columnist was a G. I. in Germany when the war ended. He joined with a young French lia'son officer in an experiment. Both had some knowledge of French, English, and German. The French officer entered a German home wearing a cap with a "U. S." button. The German housewife immediately exclaimed, "Ah, you American, good. French, no good, take everything away.' Entering another house, I wore a distinctive French cap belonging to the French officer. Seeing this cap, the German man of the house greeted me, "Ah, you are French, no? Good. Americans, no good, bomb everything." Whenever we were together, French and American, the Ger mans said, "French, good. Americans, good. Russians, no good. You good, you must save us from Russians. 1 wonder what the Germans are telling the Russians. Hitler may be dead or he may be still alive, but his propa ganda goes on. A French cate owner told me a year ago that there would be war in three months and asked me if I were a Frenchman would I side with America or Russia ! Back in the United States I expected to find people with more sense. Yet constantly the press and radio have been talk ing up another war. It seems more like a nightmare than truth. Yet this war-mongering does not come from the people. The common man everywhere hates war because he gains nothing Johnson's Funeral Home Sidney M. & Mary A. Johnson 2016 Main Street HARTFORD, CONN. Tel. 7-1285 from it. The soldiers of all countries have had enough of mud, and weariness and pain. They would rather have the war-makers do the fighting. The Spirit of Roosevelt and Willkie The people who want peace are being betrayed by the poli ticians Avho would rather repeat old mistakes. Instead of ad vancing with Roosevelt's "Four Freedoms" and Willkie 's "One World", the policies of England and America are becoming those of Churchill, the defeated Prime Minister of England, and Van denberg, of the defeated party in America. If the international politi cians will pay more attention to the science of human relations, there will be a different tone in world discussions. Each one will have to be willing to "give" more and "take less. There should not be so much self righteousness. Mr. Byrnes, for example, should think of the "white pri mary" in his own state, before he drafts a speech about free elections in Roumania, and Mr. Bevin should think of the ter rorism at the Greek ballot boxes. Mr. Gromyko should think of a lot of things before he walks out of the United Nations Security Council. Perhaps with a little more willingness to understand each other the nations could get get together on working for the four freedoms everywhere. We are more emphatic about free dom of speech and religion than the Russians. They insist more on freedom from want. Let's admit that we all could do much better in providing "free dom of speech and religion, freedom from want and from fear." 3HARLIE 'S HARDWARE CO.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR October 17, 1946 TO THE EDITOR OF THE HARTFORD CHRONICLE: I hope I will be permitted to reply to the somewhat intem perate attack upon Walter White and the National Asso ciation for the Advancement of Colored People published by Mr. Marty Richardson in your issue of October 5. The charge he makes that the NAACP and Walter White are acting from base and ignoble motives in failing to support a Communist inspired delegation to President Truman against lynching is a little unfair. That the NAACP and its leaders have been active and unselfish in the fight for fully equal rights for Negroes and all other racial minorities is proved by the rec ord. Mr. White on several oc casions during the Roosevelt Administration could have tak en a position with a larger salary than the NAACP is able to pay him, but he preferred unselfishly to continue his pres ent work. So far as there is any disunity I believe that the irresponsible attacks made by Communists and their fellow travelers on the NAACP and its leaders, such as the one Mr. Richardson writes, are the cause of it; net any attitude of the NAACP. It is a well known Communist policy, and a rather tricky one in my opinion, to denounce all persons and organizations who refuse blindly to follow Com munist leadership andthen call on those whom they are de nouncing to unite with them. When Mr. Richardson says that the NAACP and the Com munists are struggling for identical things I believe he is wrong. The primary purpose of the NAACP is to work for equal rights for Negroes and other racial minorities in every field of soeial life. The primary purpose of the Communist Par ty is to support every twist and turn of Russia's foreign policy. For example, they attacked Roosevelt as a Social Fascist in 1932 and again attacked Roose velt as a war monger in 1940, not because Roosevelt was un fair to Negroes, but because he did not follow Russia's policy.
