STREET DANCE BEGINNING 8 O'CLOCK MUSIC BY THE ythm Buddies Jf #ft 1 was in Atlanta and was greatly impressed by the large number of outstanding and progressive Negro businesses. Atlanta is strictly a segregated city. I was in several ^, New England cities where there is not supposed to be any segregation, and 1 found not one creditable Negro business. The only owned and operated Negro radio station is not in New York, but in Atlanta, Ga., and Memphis, Tenn. Segregation has not only given the Negro in the South an opportunity to carve out his industrial and econ- resignation omic destiny but it has forced him ou<!t members, to the fore as the most substantial and economically secure Negro in ''if the world loday. The Negro la New York, Newark and other supposedly liberal centers may enjoy Ihe privilege to cat where he may please or go to any theater or public place- of amusement, but a Negro can't get a license in Newark to operate a liquor store and there are any number of fields that he can't enter business in other Eastern and Northern cities. But this isn't true i|p, in the South, where a Negro can enter any kind of business he wishes and the southern whites will even loan him the money. Some pf the largest contraclors in the South are Negroes. I find more race prejudice in the East than 1 haVe found in Georgia or Mississippi. If certain organizations and liberals arc really interested in correcting a real evil-in.the school situalion then they should direct their effort toward the schools in Harrisburg, the capital of Pennsylvania which is a little closer than the nearest southern school target. Pennsylvania is one of the firsl states to enact a civil rights law. May Gqd be with us all and help us to understand one another better. For Teachers' Pay Bill But No Tax Hike By WILLIAM W. HUGHES LITTLE ROCK (UP) — The proposed minimum teachers' salary bill, probably the biggest issue facing the 1953 Arkansas Legislature, apparently can be passed only if Ihe required money is raised woulout new, taxes. Thai was Ihe conesnsus of a representative group ot lerislators in bolh Ihe House and Senale quried in a Unilcd Press survey today. Every one of Ihe 16 lawmakers questioned said he favored a teachers' salary measure whether or not il would provide for Ihe, $2,400 annual minimum requested by Ihe Arkansas Education Association. But only a scattered few expressed willingness to boost ;:ixes to raise the required revenue. State fiscal officials have csli- maled that $10,000,000 in new annual revenue would bo required for Ihe proposed AEA bill. Most of the legislators said they favored a minimum salary bill but would vote for it only if the money FORMAL DEMAND — Soviet chief delegate to the UN Andrei Vyshlnskl raises his h.ind to emphasize a point ns he makes formal demand that North Korean authorities be brought to the United Nations to discuss the Korean war.

Reds Protest Wounding of Prisoners PANMUNJOM, Korea (UP) — The chief of the Communist truce delegation proteslcd loday Ihe injuring of nine Red prisoners ot war at a United Nations stockade at Pusan. North Korean Gen. Nam 11 said in a letter handed to senior U.N. negotiator Lt. Gen. William K. Harrison at a brief liaison officers meeting: "I hereby lodge n protest with you regarding this incident. Your side must bear full respcnsibilily for each case of the war crime of persecuting and slaughtering of war prisoners." The incident Nam protesled occurred Thursday. A. U. N. an- nouncemenl said Ihe Red prisoners were injured when Ihey refused orders lo form work details. None was seriously injured. Meanwhile, Chinese Gen.
