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.

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?

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

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."

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.
