Chicago Bulletin (Newspaper) - April 18, 1963, Chicago, Illinois Ign gent a congratulations Aid. Charles Chew congratulations Are due newly elected 17th Ward Aid. Charles Chew or. And in devoted supporters. To defeat the democratic party organization in any predominantly negro Ward in Chicago is a sing it a achievement. Chew s Victory was the first time in 25 years that negro voters in Chicago elec Crl an negro candidate. It was not Only a Victory for Ingle Wool nor for negroes alone. It represents a Victory for Chicago. The political impoverishment of most predominantly negro wards was aptly characterized at least by one Independent candidate Defeated in the february 26 election. Timuel Black of the 4th Ward called it Quot Plantation not Only Are the special but just needs of negroes thwarted by a Plantation but this plight is an Albatross about the neck of Al Clin ago voters. Thus if Chew s Victory can be interpreted As a significant breakthrough in the struggle to free negro voters it must also be considered a break through for the cause of political Reform for All. However this interpretation of Chews election can stand Only a Long As the new la eth Ward Alderman stands for a new Independence Neil Itaipu y and courage on the part of elected negro Public officials. Without question candidate Chew a to id for this. He has promised that he will maintain that position As Alderman. To the extent that his word can be accepted his Victory a hould be hailed and he has every right to be considered a Man of his word unless and until his actions waive that right. Moreen or. He Hae Iden ced an awareness of the Many and formidable evil Fortes which shall dearly press him to dilute his position to betray Inglewood negroes and Chicago. These forces can be offset by the growth of his supporters and the righteousness of his stand combined with his loyalty to to Lxi a supporters and his dedication to that stand. To the extent that he weakens the possibility of Reform and the Freedom of negro voters will be doubly weakened. Through Victory. Aid. Chew has reached the threshold of greatness. The bulletin is eager to help him across for the Sake of Chicago a future if he Ever needs help. Indeed the bulletin is proud to stand with his supporters and shall remain Ever vigilant of the special responsibility and Opportunity of the Only negro Independent in the City Council As we Hope he shall.

This would also be a learning process with rewarding goals As also Rev.

On behalf of the pastor and members of the j. Claude Allen club we wish to thank you for the very Fine publicity Given us in connection with our annual fashion show held on March 17, the pictures turned out beautifully and we received Many favourable comments. Thank you again. Verv sincerely yours Gertrude Upsher president William cousins Ulirsch Roth to slam inspection Hirsch High school Roth cadets Are expected to attend the Federal inspection which will be held on May 6. According to Cadet Captain William Cooper Chicago Public High school Roth groups will assemble at grand crossing Park Lor this inspection. Medals will be presented to outstanding cadets of the past semester. The inspection will be sponsored by the department of the army and other groups. It will be directed by capt. Arthur Olson. Person is thinking so the appearance of a Community is the Best indication of what the Community is doing. A look is Worth a million words. In our cite one v sees communities w h i c h Are very poor in the sense that the h o in e s and s t r e e t s Are poorly maintained the children Are footloose and fancy free and the taverns appear to be the Only businesses which Are prospering. The residents who live in stitch communities May be and usually Are financially poor. What is More important their goals and their standards Are definitely poor. These residents usually look to their religious or their political leaders for guidance. In turn these leaders often look to exploit their followers. So the poor become even poorer and their leaders usually become comparatively Rich or apparently so. A one Aiso sees in our cite com Muni ties where the streets and the Homes Are very Well kept the children Well disciplined and apparently Well trained and a variety of businesses appear to be prospering. The residents in these communities Are sometimes financially Rich and sometimes not so. However regardless of the financial welfare of the people in the latter Type of Community their Community is Well endowed because the residents Are obviously investing their time Talent and treasure in caring for their Homes. They support the people who and the institutions that support their comm Unity. It is my opinion that we in our area have a Community which is Well endowed for the most part. However it is also my opinion that there is very much room for improvement in our Community. Our children should who done to even Promise to represent us. For instance Samuel Yaksic was elected Alderman of the 21st Ward on a platform suitable for Eastland of Mississippi. We Don t support our businesses As we should. Even big stores like red owl have had to sell out. Little store owners Are sometimes thrown out. And Only a Small percentage of our Community actually Volunteer for civic work. Still i have Confidence that the residents of Chatham will maintain and improve our Community in the future. We have the Talent and re sources with which to do so. It is of the utmost importance that my estimation of what will be done is truly prophetic because if i am wrong in this notion the consequence will be truly pathetic. As a footnote i wish to say that while i relate the remarks in this article specifically to Chatham i am mindful that the circumstances in Chatham Are a reflection of similar circumstances which exist in a number of other communities. In answer to a letter written by mrs. Gloria wills printed in the april 11 Issue of the bulletin i am pleased to inform her and other interested persons that the coordinating Council of Community organizations is comprised of the following groups Chatham Avalon Park Community Council Chicago Urban league Cook county physicians association Core Englewood committee for Community action a act the Woodlawn organization and the Dearborn real estate Board. These organizations Are among the strongest Community civic and civil rights organizations in the City and the members of the coordinating Council expect to attain substantial gains in civil rights Aims by coordinating our efforts. The office of the coordinating Council is 431 South Dearborn and Telephone number is 030-5365. In my from Golf to Mississippi Gus Savage gee thanks for your inquiries concerning this column. Uhruh getting comfortable in the Saddle at the bulletin while keeping an Eye on the bucking Booster has kept me too Busy to Muse lately. But Writh Inez Guienze rapidly winning her spurs in Woodlawn and with Connie seals happily agreeing to help me with the bulletin i did find time this week to dream and to let my mind ramble in face of a naked typewriter and my fingers just could t resist touching the keys. So to bring you up to Date on my musings. As you probably know by now the Park District Golf season opened tuesday. Yes the wife and i were am Fang the first to Wade through the Dew at Jackson Park. Since i Hadnot played in two years i Wasny to ashamed of my 81�?but in a not proud that i was too tired to play More than 10 holes. Wre were getting close to that second water Hole anyway and i Only had about nine or ten balls left not enough to risk it with any Assurance of being Able to tee up for the next Hole. It took me a few holes Touloose my wrists that a where the Powers at you know just ask Ernie Banks. Feels Good to hear that Crisp Click off the teen must of been the fourth or fifth Hole. That baby really took off at least 250 Yards a about 50 Yards straight Down the Middle of an East bound Fairway and at least 200 More across 07th Street and Over the Fence. Of course i know there is no Fence around the Jackson Park course but there i one around a House about a half Block to the South. Well that a not so easy after All even the White sox newly acquired knuckle Ball specialist or. Wilhelm has never been Able to make one break that sharply. To Tell the truth i did no to actually play tuesday i merely dreamed by Gus Savage about playing the night before. But it Wasny to the above dream that kept me from teeing off yesterday rather it was that tuesday is the Day i have to make up the Woodlawn Booster. Really that a the Only thing that kept me from tearing up Jackson Park a Divot by Divot. Enough about Golf. That dream is probably the last time ill play this year anyway. Indeed there has been a rash of serious news to ramble through of late. For instance what about Dick facing up to the Goliath of segregation in Mississippi and the perceptive a1 Hibler in the a magic City?�?T1 and the revs. King and Shuttlesworth coming on stronger than Ever could be that a a Bull Connors is frantic because they Are getting close to the ballot Box. Did no to Nkrumah once say something like Quot give me the kingdom of politics and the Meek will inherit the world.0 but it seems to me that Dick Gregory really did no to have to visit Mississippi to prove his dedication to integration. I believe the problem of school segregation in Chicago is Tough enough for any recruit to Cut h 13 Teeth on. Apparently this local problem is so Tough that Many veterans appear to have lost their molars trying to crack it and now go about gumming Only Mushy issues. In fact some observers charge that the a act most local negro leaders and Many so called White liberals have been toothless for years. Before i strike �?o3g,�?� i May As Well w raise the Wiwie who has 110 group or individual effectively demanded Willis must go a mind you i said w w you know without the support he received in predominantly negro wards mayor Daley would not have been re elected a couple weeks ago. I guess that sen Ough rambling fur now done to you Well anyway if i done to strike �?o30�?� soon my son May be expelled from school and i May be expelled from Home and i bet Tho Enite spots i mentioned even let me sleep in a Booth.
