Following her dramatic appeal, the delegates raised $775 in cash and pledged a totat or over $15,000. Said Mrs. Lampkln: "The Na tional Council is a "Must" in the organizational lire or .Negro wo men . . . There is a greater need, at a time like this, for coordination of national programs of women and the council meets this need. , Airs. Lampkln pointed out that the council could not be supported as are other organisations, L e by community funds and other sources, and that the women would have to get behind their organiza tion. She cited the manner in which the Jewish women's organ! zation had raised $250,000 through $5 subscriptions by each member. She then - outlined her proposed program for raising $50,000, a pro gram which the delegates enthusiastically adopted. Mrs. Lampkln asked - twenty members councils to subscribe $500 each. Fifteen cities were asked to raise the same amount. "Two hun dred women were asked to give $200 each.

C, and New York, lost his $50, - 000 damage suit against the Atlantic Grevhound CorDora - tion last Thursday in Judge. Julian F. Bouchelle's Circuit Court, where a jury returned a verdict for the defendant company after hearing the trial for most of three days, and after four hours of deliberation. Woodard' claimed he lost the sight of both eyes as a result of the beating given him by Lin wood I Shull, Chief of Police in Bates - burg, S. C T. Gillis Nutter, Charleston attor ney, in his opening statement for woodard, said the suit was brought for "false arrest and cruel, inhuman treatment." He said the incident was "an outrage against humanity." After receiving his honorable discharge at Camp Gordon, Georgia, Feb. 12, 194C, Woodard, according to Mr. Nutter, boarded a Greyhound bus at Augusta, Ga., for Columbia. S. C at 8:30 P. M - that day. Attorney Nutter stated that after the bus had gone some distance Woodard asekd the driver, Alton C. Blackwell. if he would let him off, to go to a rest room. The driver, Mr. Nutter said, replied "no" and cursed Woodard and Woodard cursed back. Upon arriving at Batesburg, the plaintiff's attorney continued, the driver turned the veteran over to the Chief Shull, who put him under arrest. Woodard protested and Shull struck him with a billy. The Chief, said Mr. Nutter, continued to beat Woodard as he led him off to jail, and when Woodard seized the billy another policeman drew a gun on Woodard and forced him to drop the billy. Thereupon, said Mr. Nutter, Shull knocked Woodard down and gouged both his eyes. The veteran remained In Jail over night and was lined $50 the next morning, xie later was taken to a veteran's hospital, where he mained for two months. WOODARD BLAMED Stanley C. Morris, Charleston at torney, representing the Bus Com pany in his opening statement said, "Isaac Woodard lost his eye sight is true. Troubles are often self made," he added. "Woodard's mis fortune resulted from a fight with Shull, Chief of Batesburg police. This fight did not occur on bus company's property," he continued. "It occurred at least a block and a half from the Atlantic bus line In Batesburg." Mr. Morris said that Woodard had been drinking on the bus In violation of the company rules and the laws of South Carolina, and that he was using loud ' and profane language in attempting to get the driver to stop the bus at least four times so that Woodard could relieve himself. Attorney Morris said the driver told Woodard he could leave the bus, when he first made his re quest at Aiken, the first scheduled stop, which he did. Mr. Morris said Woodard returned to the bus and still continued to use profane language. The driver, according to Mr. Mor ris, informed a passenger, who complained about the bad conduct of Woodard, that he would do something about it when they arrived at Batesburg. At this station, according to defense counsel, the driver sent for a policeman. The driver told the policemen that Woodard and another soldier were disorderly. One of the policemen removed Woodard from the bus, and later went back into the bus and caused a white soldier to go out. "Wood ard was arrested by Shull solely because of his drunkenness and disorderly conduct in Shull's presence," Mr. Morris said. The white soldier was allowed to get back re - Exotic! Minister. Finds Mexico City Colorful; Tourists Welcome Regardless Of Race, Color. By C. TOWNSEND TUCKEB "MEXICO CITY (ANP) Here to observe what is being done through UNESCO during its second inter national conference, I have had an opportunity to look about Mexico City. There are many things here of interest. I met Felix Alarcon, booking agent of the El Patio Nite Club, who is responsible for bringing Josephine. Baker, her orchestra - leader husband and pianist Pierre Guillermin to the El Patio. It, with the beautiful choral group of young Mexican girls, makes a most attractive show. AJ acorn has had wonderful suc cess during his twelve years here, in bringing top bracket acts to El Patio. Then I visited the Parisian Club, operated by the Inimitable "Brick - top," who has been an outstanding factor in night life entertainment in Chicago, New York and Paris, where she reigned for years until the war sent her to Mexico City. I found that Mexico welcomes all visitors regardless of color or creed. END JIM CROW IN WASHINGTON White Banks Sponsor New Farm Program MAGNOLIA, Miss.
