BLYTHEV1LLI TUESDAY, JUNE 8, 1954 Roosevelt Battle Highlights Today's California Primary « SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -~ James Roosevelt, eldest son of th« late President, pits the political drawing power of his once-magic name against headlined scandal charges and nine opponents today in the feature race of the California primary election. Voters will Ballot for a U.S. senator, 30 congressmen, a governor and other state offices. Perhaps 50 to 55 per cent of the 5,664,000 registered voters were expected to respond to an unexciting campaign between' Republican Gov. Goodwin J. Knight and Richard P. Graves, Democratic candidate for governor, and a fairly routine fight for the U.S. Senate. Roosevelt appeared confident the voters in the Democratic 26th Congressional District of Los Angeles would overlook sensational charges of his estranged wife Romelle that he was intimate with a dozen women—charges he denied in court. "Satisfactory Campaign" "It has been a very satisfactory campaign." the tall, 46-year old Democratic candidate said in an election eve statement. He did most of his campaigning in about 200 homes in the Y-shaped district. His chief Democratic opponent, Ned Redding, community newspaper publisher and a descendant of Thomas Jefferson, predicted j he'd take both nominations him- j'self. Both cross-filed on the Re- I publican ticket. In all, five Democrats and five Republicans entered the race. The 26th District representative for four years, Democrat Samuel W. Yorty, is running against Sen. Thomas H. .Kuchel, Republican. Knight, twice elected lieutenant | governor by huge majorities on both tickets, inherited the governorship in October when Warren became chief justice of the United States. Graves, a former Republican, was a political stranger to Californians when he decided to take on Knight. He is counting on the new party designation of candidates on the ballot to swing the Democratic nomination his way. Both men cross-filed. The present House delegation is 19 Republicans and 11 Democrats. All but one incumbent from each party sought re-election. Dallas Community May Dismiss Negro Servants with Children Dallas. Tex. (#)—An alderman of one of Dallas' Park Cities, fashionable municipalities surrounded by Greater Dallas, has suggested dismissal of all Negro servants with children in the area. Alderman C. K. Bullard said last night at a meeting of the Higland Park Town Council that his plan would insure no Negro students in the municipalities* schools in the next few years. Bullard brought up the question of segregation—banned by a U.S. Supreme Court decision several days ago—after a private conversation he said he had with Mayor Roy'C. Coffee of University Park and Franklin Spafford, president of the Dallas Bar Assn. and a trustee of the Dallas School Board. Bullard quoted Spafford as saying this was the last year the bulging Dallas independent school district could accept Negro children from the Park Cities. The $10 monthly tuition for each of the Negro children has been paid by the Highland Park Independent School District, Aloermen, discussing the situation, agreed that there might be as.:, many as 25 Negro students living in Highland Park among the population of approximately 1,405. I The restricted area allows only Negroes who are members of serv- , ant families to live within its ; boundaries. They must live on the i premises of people who hire them. Another alderman suggested at the meeting that all Negroes be moved out o.' Highland Park, but a third 'contended that only the servants' employers could make them move. HEADIN' FOR THE ROUNDUP—Hemmed in by a network of barbed wire fences, captured Mau Mau terrorists are marched into one of the 25 compounds at the Langata Detention Camp near Nairobi, Kenya. There are some 10,000 prisoners at the camp. Terrorist suspects are screened at Langata, and then some are moved to other detention spots throughout the colony. Mother Accused of 'Selling' Daughter's Virtue CLEVELAND MP>—A stout, middle-aged mother, who police said 'sold" her 13-year-old daughter's virtue for $20 a week and a basket of groceries, was convicted by a tury last night of neglect. The man to whom the 46-year- old woman was accused of sending her daughter was "Papa" Joe remati. 57. operator of a reputed house of prostitution. Cremati recently was convicted of rape in he same case. The child was found in Cremati's louse last January in a police raid. Neither her name nor that of her mother has ever been published here. According to Asst. County Prosecutor Dennis J. McGuire. the 13- year-old and five of her brothers and sisters frequently stayed over in the Cremati house. The girl had her own bedroom there. Police Chief Frank Story made the statement aoout the woman "selling" her daughter for $20 weekly and groceries. The mother has described Cremati as a "good-hearted man" who volunteered to help support her after her husband deserted her. Juvenile Court Judge Albert A. Woldman deferred sentence on the woman until June 17. Maximum penalty would be a year in the workhouse and a $1,000 fine. Mexican Ambulance Plane Crashes ACAPULCO.
