South Side Bulletin (Newspaper) - February 7, 1968, Chatham, Illinois This The Uncertified Teacher And The Negro By DOROTHY W ROBINSON PAGE 4 Leaders Of Major Area Groups Differ Sharply Over Gun Law

acumen and contribution to community welfare George Johnson left president Johnson Company 8522 LaFayette was chosen Man of the Year by the Chicago Urban League Making the presentation is Sheiman R president of the Urban League Board during annual luncheon Friday Jan 26 in the Conrad Hilton Hotel The Chicago Urban League is recognized as the top Urban League organization in the country as a result of its cool realistic treatment of race relations Unique Child Care Center Pre-School Need in Three Areas Pride In Two Areas TWO ISOLATED yet intrinsically interrelated ences m the area this past week more than served to re enforce my ideas toward a positive approach to the widening problems of black-white race relations On Friday had heart-warming pleasure to be a small part of a banquet for a young man who appears to be on the threshold of writing new pages in the country's baseball his tory ALONGSIDE of other ty residents who daily seek to im- prove conditions in a badly tilted I observed and heard a small but dedicated group of friends and relatives commend young Ronald Scipio of 8416 St Lawrence for his successful efforts in becoming a major league ball player Not only is it noteworthy that a local boy has made the big show and the fact that he is the first Chicago born Negro to achieve this distinction but he did it through a doorway that has only been opened in this area for a few short years SCIPIO'S baseball education though beginning with his own personal desire was nurtured and fed through the outlet of a local Little League which exists only through the sincere efforts of a few down to earth nev ei say die men led by one Anthony Overstreet UNLIKE the Little League directors that appear in the movies and on television Overstreet is a working man like the rest of us He is not a wealthy man nally but he is a man with a tremendous visionary inter- est in our future adults Long ago Overstreet recog the abilities of many boys being dissipat ed in the many foibles of youth IN AN EFFORT to harness these skills and talents he 01 and chartered the West Park Manor Babe Buth Baseball League With his own hands and life work he has kept the league in operation It is difficult to meet this man without having some of his fervor rub off Yet he has not been able to convince enough people with enough leal interest to really put the league on solid footing It is difficult to understand how so many thousands of dollars are spent m less productive and this fledging is unable to boast of it s own enclosed sports facility I sincerely believe that if Anthony had iust a little help and money he would produce at least one Scipio per year Tib that one Scipio will not necessarily change the couise of the city s mam stream but his success could be a magnet that could attract many other who aie being pulled into other less en I HI CII M HAM West Patk Manoi communities aie than capable of supporting such a venture So ion what we can do as individuals to cut down our growing delinquency stop blaming all of socie s and take a hand Give a hand up to Little League THE OTHER event which transpired last week dealt with a community response

bills over and above their own prudent deliberations the called the new gun controls an exercise in political babble Lamb called attention to the fact that an ordinance relat ing to this subject has been on the books for years which was never enforced Although the highly respected Lamb was critical and dubious of the newly enacted he ex pressed a need for some type of significant confrontation with the swooping crime rate within the inner city A 60 pel cent increase in killings by firearms in the past two years has been reported by police officials and last year more than 800 young sters under the age of 17 used guns to commit crimes includ ing murder Some of those dren were as young as years old Fame In Great Hair McDade Sets Heritage Observance THE MANY TIONS made by the Negro to

Zedrick Braden president of Park Manor Neigh bors Community Council told BULLETIN Frankly I am in accord with the new gun We have got to begin some place and this seems to me just the place to start Particularly important it seems to me is the section which deals with the possession of fire arms by young people teen since so much of the crime has come from this age bracket PERHAPS NOT since the period has there been more talk concern ing the potential stringent suppression of the Negro as there is now circulating in tain black intellectual circles The BULLETIN asked den about the possibility of the gun law being directed to con tain and corral the freedom of black people and he ly slated No I can t see that this is directed at our group pei se As of now I see the new ordi nance as being
