Hmu, riitiay, May k4, ivy* Boston's Last Bean Factory Moving Facilities To Maine African Chief Lauds U.S. Industrialization NEW YORK (AP -- A spirl- ,ual chieftain of blacks in South-West Africa, invited to take part in church criticisms of a U.S. f i r m operating in his lomcland, had in contrast some words of praise. "The Americans are doing their best by my people," Bishop Leonard N. Auala said in an ntervicw. "The company men do not want to discriminate. Only because of the apartheid policies, they have to listen " His gentle manner injected a moderating note--and some surprise--into the U.S. church case. At Ihe same time, however, he condemned the racial separation of apartheid, arid said my people suffer very low wages and difficult conditions. Pay should he according .o skilled work, not according :o skin." Despite the problems, he said i strongly opposes efforts lo _ ft American firms to withdraw operations in protest to apartheid, saying such action would leave blacks jobless and without means of livelihood"Something is better than nothing." he said. "My people ivork for the Americans' and we are satisfied with those ivhite people. They also are against apartheid, but have to follow South Africa's laws," Bishop Auala, fi5, heads the Evangelical Lutheran Ovam- bokavango Church in Namibia South-West Africa whose 330,000 members make up half the mainly black population of that disputed territory. "My people w a n t to be a free and! independent nation, black and white together, hand in hand, one country," he said. "Black people need white people and their skills. We're not against white people, only against discrimination." BOSTON (AP) -- For Bostonians, it's the end of an era. The baked bean is leaving town. The Friend Brothers l)ean factory, the city's last, is moving to Portland, Maine, on May 31. Friend Brothers has heen producing Boston baked beans since 1928 with a recipe handed down through the Friend family from Pilgrim days. But the factory was sold last j'ear to William Underwood Co. of Portland, and thus the move. "I was shocked when 1 learned the news," said Ken Spaulding, 62, assistant manager of the bean plant in Maiden, a Boston suburb. "I've been with the Friend Brothers since 1930--thats' 44 years--and I expected to keep working here until T retired." The Underwood company, which produces BM baked beans at Portland, is closing down that facility and has offered to take on some of the Maiden plant employes at i t s new Portland factory. When the Pilgrims settled in New England, baked beans became a popular dish for Sunday suppers. Because cooking was not permitted on the Sabbath, the bean pot was put on the fire Saturday night and kept warm into Sunday. Pilgrim Hester Friend's rec- ipc traveled the generations ol icr family until Leslie, Victor and Robert Friend decided to open their factory in the Boston area. Spaulding said. By the 1930s, there were five Friend bean factories in downtown and suburban locations. In the early 1960s, however, :he family business was sold, and all but the Maiden factory were closed as the firm changed hands several times. "Years ago, there used to be Homemakers B e a r s and Friend's . . .," Spaulding said. "Of course, Homemakers was never as big an operation as Friend's. "Then Homemakers was purchased by an outs'ide outfit, and they stopped making beans here. Now Friend's is leaving, too. "It just doesn't seem right." Shoots At- Indians NEDROW, N.Y.
