The plank means "simply: "Any war the black man fights is going to be against Whitey not with him.' Thus advised, both responsible and irresponsible Negroes be- ieve that this form of "con- cientious objection" to military service could become the first critically serious battleground between militant blacks and the rest of the nation. Says one Negro opinion: "It shouldn't be difficult to convince Negro youths to refuse Army duty obligation. Even white boys hate the thought of conscription." Adds another: "Something like this could weaken all America." James Lawson, long • time leader of various African Na- 'ionalism movements, predicted that unless Washington solves the problem, "it will become explosive," hinder our defenses and open the door for communism in America. "Right now the black man has nothing," he explained. "A n d unless he gets something pretty soon he's going to decide he has j no reason to defend zero." Red China is already trying to take advantage of Negro apathy, Lawson told me. "A few weekends ago," he asserted, "Peking agents brought over $2 million into Harlem to get a riot going. And they'll try again and again until they succeed." (Other Negro leaders claimed to know nothing of this.) He said the Reds can only be stopped by continued Negro support Of the country's armed forces. And he added that guar- Slander vs. Libel A person who tells something false likely to injure the reputation or good name of another person may be charged with slander; writing or printing a similar false statement is called libel.

The portly, 48 - year - old Lawson demanded a "coming to terms with the 22 million Americans of African descent." He said the Jews were compensated with money (by the Germans) for crimes committed against them in World War II and that the same should be done for the "sons and daughters of white man's brutality." Specifically, Lawson wants each Negro in the land paid $7,000 in "partial payment" for maltreatment. That is a total cost of $154 billion. Also, he advocated fee orderly realization of the term Black THE POLICE, whom militant Negroes hate, must patrol tense areas.

"It's for your own good," he told me. ."If Negroes own their own places, they aren't going to stand by and watch them destroyed by riols or wars." Lawson is a relatively mild Power. The ownership of all | militant, a believer in neither nonviolence nor unnecessary force. From his dingy, single- room Harlem office, he offers a middle - of - the - road philosophy: "I make decisions as I go along." But he's capable of biting. He is impatient and claims to speak for millions of other impatient Negroes. He and they want a large chunk of the economy today. And they insist Hie nation has only two choices: "If the black man doesn't get it then the Communists will." (End Series.) :'.' STRONGEST pain relief you can get without a prescription! ST.JOSEPH ASPIRIN LITTLE BUT STRONG BEAUMONT (AP) - He's only 5-foot 3-inches tall and weighs a mere 118 pounds, but it took two Beaumont policemen and a bystander to subdue the reluctant lad. Patrolmen Jim Suite and John Bean stopped ftie testy tussler or a traffic charge. He informed them he had no intention of being arrested and proceeded to let fly with a couple of well- placed punches to the officers' heads. The officers hailed a passing truck and persuaded the burly driver to hold the bantamweight battler while they handcuffed him. Even then the pint - sized puncher tried to open the door of the squad car with his cuffed {lands as the officers took him in for booking on a charge of aggravated assault on a police officer. ALL IN THE LINE OF DUTY DALLAS (AP) — Firemen in Dallas don't let little things such as their own safety awards presentations interfere with their firemanship.
