The Hartford Chronicle Page Three SOCIAL WORKER SUPPORTS KOPPLEM AN (Special to the Chronicle) Hartford, Oct. 17 His desire for public officals "Who will help the predominating groups in this country and other coun tries throughout the world to appreciate our point of view which would make the world better for all racial groups to live" has prompted Samuel M. Jenkins, executive Secretary of the Independent Social Center to publicly announce his sup port of Congressman Herman P. Kopplemann. Representa tive Kopplemann is the demo cratic candidate for Congress. In a letter to the Congress man, Mr. Jenkins wrote. "May I congratulate the Democratic Party for selecting you as their candidate to return to Congress. I had hoped that you would be the unanimous choice of the two major parties as I know of no one just now who is bet ter qualified to represent the State of Connecticut and the country as a whole. In spite of the fact that the Republican party did not see .fit to make you their choice, there are many of us. Republicans who may find ourselves splitting our ticket on the day of election." In his reply, Congressman Kopplemann said: "There are certain' principles which have always guided my thinking. There are certain goals which I have always considered it necessary for a real democracy to strive for, and in my own small way I have tried to work for those goals throughout the year. "I am glad to find stalwarts like you who 'hold the same principles that I do," Repre sentative Kopplemann con tinued. Representative Koppleman, who is seeking his sixth term in Congress is nationally known for his progressive views. He has been in the forefront of the battle for FEPC, Anti-Lynching laws and the abolition of the Poll Tax. He has tried several times to put through a . bill which would give equal rights to negroes ' residing in Wash ington, D. C.

A. P. Morris pastor of the Metropolitan AMEZ church was born at Rocking ham, N. C, but at a very early age was carried to Los Angeles, California by his parents. In Los Angeles he secured his ele mentary and High School train ing. Before the completion of his Senior year he felt the urge to leave school and go to work. I As many young people do, he carried out this personal de cision and began work, but his conscience increasingly wor ried him because he felt that there was a specific mission in life that he was not fulfilling. But despite this uneasiness of conscience he carried on until he at last worked himself up to a position in a private family where he was making $225 a month, At last, despite the affluence and economic security his em ployment offered, he gave it all up with the decision to re turn to school and ultimately! enter the ministry. This was a very difficult decision because it meant turning back to tra verse a very diffiicult road. ' However in 1923 he entered Livingstone College Prepara tory School where he completed the, High School course he had dropped, back in Los Angeles. He immediately thereafter en tered the College department and pushed on to the comple tion of his Theology. In the course of this ardu ous task of starting back over the route to an education Rev. Morris had at least one oppor tunity to question the wisdom of his decision. The head of the family he had served in Los Angeles died and left several thousand dollars to the indi vidual that had taken his place and only worked half as long. It was but human to wonder if this step he had taken was not a mistake. Despite this however, Rev. Morris pressed on with his new ambitions and since that day has done yeoman's service in the AMEZ church, having pastored at Greenville Taber nacle in Charlotte, N. C. ; Cen ter St. Church in Stateville, N. C. ; Metropolitan in Fayette ville, N. C; Yonkers Institu tional Church, Yonkers, N. Y. From Yonkers the confer ence sent Rev. Morris to Hart ford as pastor of the Metro politan AME? Cuurch. He came to this pastorate in July, 1942, and has done an exceed ingly fine job with the paying off of the mortgage, the re-decoration of the church and adi ded to the membership. Rev. Morris' family consists of Mrs. Josephine . Theresa Morris a graduate of Barber Scotia College Steven Austin, age 9 and Theresa Hortense, age 7. Here is a man who has really persevered, who fought against a basic inclinaton to enter, the Ministry; finally dropped the fight and has made . the long journey to real community serv ice despite an mfinate number of handicaps. DEDICATION OF JUNIOR CHOIR ROBES Sunday, Oct. 27th at the regu lar morning services at the Union Baptist Church, a service of dedication for the newly ac quired robes of the Junior Choir was observed. In an atmo sphere of solemnity a 35 voice choir marched in singing The Lord Is My Shepherd. Rev. J. C. Jackson empha sized the need for unity and co operation in all church activi ties. He pointed out the fact that in the dedication of these robes was the opportunity to also re-dedicate our lives and work to Christ. The Choir rendered the fol lowing special numbers, The Lost Chord; The Holy City and Does Jesus Care.
