Negro Communist Secretary Defies Senate, House Probes WASHINGTON . 'W) -- A Negro C o m m u n i s t scowlingly refused to-answer question after question and flung out a string of defiant charges in separate appearances before S e n a t e House committees Wednesday. Members of neither committee moved to rebuke the witness, Benjamin Davis Jr., national secretary of the U. S. Communist Party since December. Davis first went before the Senate internal security subcommittee, which is trying to determine whether any change in policy could be expected from the new party regime. Davis said the subcommittee "seeks to convict people without proper proceedings." Then he tore into the subcommittee's chairman, Sen. James O. Eastland (D-Miss), who was not present. Calling the senator "one of the worst Negro haters--and of Jewish people as well," Davis said Eastland "ought to be thrown out of Congress." Davis said the senators lacked authority to pry into his political views and "will get no cooperation from me." Then Davis went before the House Committee on Un- American Activities, which is investigating Communist a c t i v i t i e s a n d propaganda among y o u t h groups. "Why don't you subpoena the lynchers of Mack Parker?" Davis called out from the witness stand. Parker was a Mississippi Negro who was snatched from jail and killed two days before he was to go on trial for rape. His killcVs have not been apprehended. When Committee Counsel Richard Arens asked Davis if he ever said. "I'd rather be a l a m p posl in Moscow t h a n P r e s i d e n t of I he United Stales," the witness flung back: "Ridiculous garbage!" Claremont Spurns U.S. Money Gills CI.ARF.MONT (/PI -- Ciare- nioiii College is only 14 years old, has 340 men students and needs more money--but will not accept federal gifts. The Board of Trustees has decided to continue the college's policy of private support, declaring: "It is a duty, and an inspiring one." ;Whcn a private c o l l e g e accepts government gifts, the . trustees said, "it lets down its-guard and invites interference to the pursuit of free inquiry and untrammeled scholarship." .: * * * A SPOKESMAN for the board said the trustees didn't base their statement on any recent federal grant or rumor of a grant. "They just thought it was time to make a statement of policy," he said, "and they had been considering the problem a long time. "Claremont prides itself on its independence. It came up the hard way." The school, founded in 1946 wild $86,000 in individual gifts, is one of five small liberal arts i n s t i t u t i o n s loosely associated in a so-called "Oxford Plan." With a large number of leader young people in the audience, Davis told the committee, "You're not interested in kids at all. You're just interested in being judge and jury and and carrying on your two-bit legal business." Arens handed Davis what was called a Communist Party resolution. Twice Davis brusquely pushed it back across the witness table with-' out even looking at'it. At another point, Davis snapped at Arens, "I suggest you stop asking these ques tions or you get no from me." Davis cited the Fifth Amendment protection against possible self - incrimination an the free - speech amendment in refusing to answer questions. Another witness before the Senate committee was Gus Hall, the U.S. Communists'' new genqral secretary and head of the party organization. He was even more close- tdan Davis. Hall, who invoked the Fifth Amendment repeatedly in 1 i/ hours of questioning Tuesday, the same 88 times in 40 minutes Wednesday. He was questioned by Subcommittee Counsel J. G. Sourwine about writing attributed to Hall and William Z. Foster, former U.S. Communist Party head. answer mouthed mid did Mother Guilty of Manslaughter in Fatal Burning of Child, 2 BENJAMIN DAVIS JR. 'Ridiculous Garbage' Long Btach, Calif., Tours., F«t. 4, INDEPENDENT--Page C-? LOS ANGELES (CNS) -- A mother, whose 2-year-old son burned to death when he was left alone at home with his brothers and sisters, has been convicted of manslaughter. Isabel Rodriguez, 31, was found guilty of the charge by Superior Judge Clement Nye following a non-jury trial. The jurist remanded Mrs. Rodriguez to County Jail in lieu of bail pending sentencing on March 3. Investigators claimed Mrs. Rodriguez was in a neighborhood bur last Nov. 8 when fire broke out in her home. Mrs. Rodriguez contended she was at a nearby store at the time. Three of her children--Roberto, 4; Mario, 3, and Patricia--were dragged from the burning house by a neighbor. Pauline Faison, 28, had to break through doors which had been padlocked. When firemen arrived they found Mrs. Rodriguez' youngest child, Carlos, badly burned in a back bedroom. Police say the woman's two other sons started the fire;by playing with matches.

I Most cars are merely sprayed... Some cars get only "tip-toe" Rambler bcidy being submerged in special ruitpranf tig primer paint at Milwaukee body planli Rambler Tops All But 2 U.S. Cars i N EVER BEFORE has an automobile had so many imitators as Rambler in this year of the BIG TURN, when every major competitor has turned about-face to build a smaller car. But the imitators fail to achieve deep-down Rambler quality that extends even into every hidden part of the car. That's the reason why Rambler has soared into (he Top 3 in production for 1959, in the face of this new competition. In the picture above, the commentator is depicted "riding" a Rambler as it goes through the 15,000 gallon rustproofmg tank which is 91 feet long. The Rambler rustproofing primer paint compound contains zinc chromate, the pigment used to protect atomic submarines from rust and corrosion. Since rust usually starts inside fenders, doors, pillars and sills, which cannot be reached effectively by spraying, Rambler bodies are submerged all the way up to the roof in a special rustproofing primer paint to cover hidden, inner surfaces. As the diagrams at top show, most cars, including, two of the largest-selling inakcs, gel only spraying-no dip at all. The few competitive cars which have taken even a "half step" toward copying Rambler's exclusive rust-prevention process, dip only the bottom 11 to 18 inches. Too often, imitators lose sight of the basic concept of the original and arc content to stop halfway. Another example--this year, many of the American cars have simulated Rambler's aircraft-type Single-Unit* construction, because it is stronger, safer and lastingly free from body-bolt squeaks and rattles. Rambler extends welded steel box-section girders forward beyond the fire w.ill and up hood high to protect passengers and engine. This also adds strength and rigidity. Others Go Halfway in Unit Construction. Some cars copied Rambler only part way--ending the unit construction at the fire wall. Beyond this, a SEE THE DIFFERENCE! Rambler 100% Single- Unit construction Competitive halfway unit construction "stub frame" is boiled on, not welded, omitting ·Rambler'svitalfrontalprotectionandaddedstrength. Others Go Halfway in Room and Comfort. Although the scaled-down cars claim six-passenger room, none of them matches Rambler's headroom, shoulder room and leg room. And they fall far short of Rambler in case of entry and exit. And Rambler has half again more luggage space than the average of the new foreign-size U. S. cars- more than double in one instance. Others Go Halfway in Quality. Instead of big 15-inch tires like Rambler, its new imitators settle for small, foreign-size 13-inch wheels and tires. Small tires mean less load-carrying capacity . . . small tireswcar out faster, because they revolve nearly a million more times in an average year's driving. Others Go Halfway in Model Choice. Actually, the imitators have not gone anywhere near halfway. Most offer only sedans. Rambler offers you 33 models, including 17 station wagons. And there arc scores more examples of Rambler's clear-cut superiority, not only over the new economy cars, but over the large "low-prictd cars"--examples ranging from individually adjustable front scats to bonded brake linings.
