According to Chatman Wailea 6922 Prairie executive director of the Robert la. Miller youth organization 15 students Are enrolled in the a overtime Quot tutoring and school assignment class. There Are five instructors including two College students and one school teacher. Or Tutuh a strategy for Progress in politics by Gus Savage in i m o previous Cal tron i Natal the Progress in negro representation recorded in the november election returns and contrasted this Vith the slowed Pace in Illinois. I then made Soma analysis of this contrast in an Effort to discover Why. The f allotting column the third and final of this series takes leave of this question. Admittedly the initial query has been Only partly answered but this should be sufficient to permit intelligent treatment of a the More germane questions what can be done to rectify this shame and How it might be encouraging first to observe that the moment the Sun reaches Che top of the heavens it begins to fall. Likewise perhaps the ailing and aging Cong. Dawson leached his Zenith when he polled Over 150,-Iooo votes against his Republican opponent the Rev. Wilbur n. Daniel last november. Indeed negative signs regarding a the old Many and his organization have been cropping up for sometime despite increasing Success. One such sign is the fact that patronage and Power to Render favors Are not As abundant or attractive in Chicago As 25 years ago. Gus Savage today More negro voters Are in a position to do without either. Another such sign is the fact that the fastest growing communities of stable negro families a Park Manor Chatham Chesterfield it a1 a constitute the very communities in which the machine is weakest. Dawson himself was beaten by civil Righter a. A. Rayner jr., in everyone of these areas in the primary last april. Furthermore though Dawson won in the primary 45,000 to 27,000, it should be noted that some 100,-000 additional votes were cast in the 1st District election in november. In other words there were enough stay at Home votes in the april primary to have trounced Dawson without having to Cut into his acknowledged strength. Moreover a the old Many has been liable to Stop negro removal under the Guise of Urban renewal in his own 2nd Ward. The expansion of the Illinois Institute of technology Campus and the development of the Lake Meadows and Prairie shores Middle income housing projects have created substantial pockets of resistance there. In addition efforts to expand Dawson a sub machines Domain in 19 13 to include the 5th and 21st wards through the candidacies of Chauncey Eskridge and Melvin Mcnairy failed miserably. Where the Apple was Ripe that year in the 17th Ward Dawson a organization was not permitted to go near the tree. Nevertheless Dawson has not dared rebel against Daley As he did against former mayor Martin Kennedy in 1955, for the present mayor controls party patronage More tightly than did any of his predecessors. Furthermore having offended the negro Community by serving another master for 25 years Dawson has become Ever More dependent upon that master to protect him from his own constituency. Yet. These signs represent Only seeds of the Freedom crop planted in the North a most unyielding political soil. To grow they must be cultivated. This requires a larger number of Black hands with the implements continued on Page 4 High Havighurst urges extra education Over 200 persons braved the Snow and below freezing temperatures sunday to hear or.
