Yuma Daily Sun, The (Newspaper) - June 3, 1964, Yuma, Arizona 4th Avenue Parking Ban Moves Closer Editor's Notebook The Blank Spot in the Textbooks By JONES OS8ORN Historians at the University of California at Berkeley no- Hced something odd about the history books. They noticed that, in seven different his- tory textbooks widely used in C a li fornia public schools, a distorted view of slav- ery and the N c g r o in America is presented, or else the Ne- gro as a part of American history is not mentioned at all. The historians reported their discovery lo the California De- partment, of Education. Negroes sailed to Hie New World with Balboa in 1513. Negroes fought in Revolution- ary War under George Wash- ington. (Washington at first barred Negroes from Ihe army, until the British began recruit- ing slaves. Alarmed, he then enlisted more than Negro soldiers, and used them in in- teuraied units. Contrary to popular myth, the U.S. had .188.000 free Ne- groes by 1SGO, almost half of them in the South. In Ihe Civil War, more Hian 210.000 Negroes fought in the Union army nnd navy. They won 20 Congressional Medals of Honor. More than made Ihe supreme sacrifice. Yet the California history bonks touch uiJon the Negro lightly, if at all. In one book there is no men- tion r.f slavery in Hie Colonial period. In another, there is not a sin- gle word about Negroes after the Civil War. A iliiid uui..-; nut iiiL-iiliuii Ne- groes in any connection what- soever. The historians iwint out that Hie Icxlbooks are this way be- cause the publishers wanted lo be nbie to sell them to public schools in Ihe South. 10c THE WEATHER HlSC'st yesk'rttay Lowest 71 '1 vmpcriiture :it 11 a.m. today Mi Kcliitive :it 11 a.m. .'iki'.o AvuriiKi; lilKh this date HMI Avenge low llils date 07 KOKKCAST a> Tliursitay nlKlit: Variable liiiili clcnitlipii'ss llltli' clKniKi' In temiiiTuturi' today Thursdyy.

Barry Goldwaler grabbed a commanding lead for (he GOP presidential nomination today with a stunning California primary victory. Confounding the pollsters wiio had made him the underdog, the Arizona senator came from behind in the vote count to to nose out New York Gov. Nel- son A. Rockefeller for the state's 86 Republican presiden- tial nominating voles. Goldwater's victory had been forecast by the electronic pro- jections of the television net- works. But it took all-night tab- ulations of the actual votes to establish him firmly as the winner. Rockefeller carried most of the California counties in what was a liberal vs. conservative battle. 1st .Major Victory Southern California returns, chiefly from Los Angeles, gave Goldwater his first victory in a major contested primary after losses in New Hampshire and Oregon. This put him near the G55 delegale votes required for the nomination. The Associated Press tabu- lation of returns from of. the state's precincts showed Goldwater Rockefeller Goldwater was getting M.fl per cent of the vole. Most of the network projections had ranged around 51 per cent, a figure on which CBS settled after having predicted general- ly that he would win witli 53 per cent. Oblivious to a short-lived bomb scare, Goldwater took a transcontinental nap as he flew from Los Angeles to Washing- ton. Police hustled a passenger off Goldwater's jet airliner in Los Angeles and made him un- pack a sachel. When no bombs or guns were found in it, air- line officials let him reboard. In high good humor, Goldwa- ter joked with reporters on his arrival in Washington. Alinut Water Alluding to the long dispute between Arizona and California over the waters of the Colora- do River, the Arizona senator cracked: "I have a different at- titude toward Californians now.
