Yet last month ho put a shotgun to Ins head ami killed himself. The following tells tlie story of a victim nf tFic turmoil of tlic tiinl's in wliich he lived. By CHARLES C. CAIN' FLINT, Mich. (AP) When Paul Cabell became a teacher he was convinced he could ease i-aciaj tensions between white and black students. A product of Detroit's block ghetto, Cabell felt certain of liis ability to communicate with youngsters, especially blacks. Four years later, Cabcll was assistant principal of Beecher district high school. But those four years had been marrcci by racial strife at the two liigli sclxwls at which he taught. On Feb. 24, Paul Cabell, 26 and married, put a shotgun to liis head and committed suicide, lie left behind a long letter tell- ing of tlie frustrations of a black man trying to achieve racial failing. Tlis letter cliided students, es- some of the blacks, for what he considered their own failure to work hard enough for racial peace. He rebuked those were overcome by the myopic single- ness of blackness" and who re- sorted to violence. But then- much in the tone of a forgiving asked; "Do you pun- ish a child who is learning to walk when he LEAVES MESSAGE His farewell message added. "To the white students 1 com- mend yoii for keeping your coo! as long as you did. Tolerance Neiv era changes Shanghai By HENRY HABTZENBUSCH SHANGHAI (AP) The sky- ine of this metropolis of 10 nillion has changed only a lit- le since the Communists came to power. The view is still dominated by buildings put up in the era when foreigners controlled one of the world's irealest ports. But the signboards are dif- erent, the way of life has changed radically, and the days of kowtowing to the pow- of the dollar, franc and lound are over, Shanghai was once a fishing 'illage en the mud flab at the mouth of the mighty Yangtze liver. In the 19th century, Vestern merchants turned it nto a bustling city. It grew to >ccome ono of the largest ci- ios in tha on adventure, vice and economic chemes spawned by E u r o- leans and Americans. Shanghai still is China's major port, although the vol- of shipping has dropped drastically. Hundreds of ships of all nationalities and tonnage ised to anchor in pre-revolu- ionary days. Today the num- ber averages a tenth of the old days. A walk along the famed Bund on the w a t e r fr o n t vokes memories of a livelier nd sinful past when Shang- ai, after the British Chinese Dpium war, became a "treaty ort" to let the West exploit nd tap the resources of mil- ons of Chinese. VESTERN DRESS GONE Gone are the days when wealthy and white-collar rorkcrs wore Western suits r slinky Chinese dresses slit long the thigh. Now millions of Chinese wear lue tunics with matching blue aps. A sprinkling of olive-col- red uniforms denotes mem- crs of the People's Liberation Gambling, prostitution, opi- m, horse and dog racing have :ivcn way to austerity and pur- :anism. Tlie ex-customs house oper- ted by British civil service ypcs now is the Shanghai Cus- oms and Harbor Administra- 'on. The huge building of the long Kong and Shanghai Bank- ng Corp. has been turned into eadquarters for the Shanghai evolutionary committee. Two ronze lions, once a landmark, ave been removed. Two army guards stand rigidly, holding fles. Famed Blood Alley, where eamen fought over drinks White Russian and Chi- ese hostesses, has not left a race of ils past. There is a j ow of workers' dwellings on le short, narrow street, now ailed Shikou Lu. and patience be ever yours. "To the vast majority of blacks who did not take a stand but who let the words of a few hotheads I urn your mind away from what it is all about, I say it is for you I die. "Ailor much careful thought, there is no other way I can im- press on you Ihc need to slop standing back and to force ouf Ehose sick people who will never let us blacks become equal be- cause they want to compel R or fight with white folks instead of vorking and understanding hem. I die to emphasize to you and all minority people iviio ever dream to be free that it can come only through working ogether. It seems to me there s no other way to get your at- ention." Says his widow, Carlitla: "He died in a good cause and or UK tiling in which he be- cooling off of racial celings among students." Cabell had a master's degree n education from the Univer- sity of Michigan. He fiad com- peted all the classroom work or his dociorate at the same university. BRIGHT FUTURE "Paul probably could have been a superintendent of schools or a college administrator >ut he wanted to stay at the evel wliere he could work with said his fellow teacher and friend, Mike Irwin of Butzel junior high in Detroit, Irwin said: "Paul found him- self in the tough position of trying to be a teacher and a black at tlie same time as he tried to cool off the atmos- phere." His switch to Beecher seemed a dream come true at first, said Mrs. Calxill. In addition to being assistant principal, Cabell helped run a special program outside school hours which helped school dropouts get their diplomas. Cabell worked hard at main- taining as much rapport as pos- sible between the races at tlie school. Most of those who knew Cab- ell agreed school trouble on Feb. 18 touched off the events that ended with the shotgun blast. "When trouble broke out in the school, (here were separate assemblies for while and black said George Moss, another black teacher. Tiie school has about 35-pcr-cen( black enrolment. "Paul went into the black as sembly to talk with the kids but (lie least some of to listen to him, called him an UncJe Tom and said he was not black Moss related. PRAYED FOR SNOW Says lu's widow: "On the day before he died, he came home from school and prayed that there would be z heavy snowstorm so they would have to close the school the next she said. U did not snow. Says principal Robert Towns: "Paul was a black man accused by some blacks of not being black enough. Some whites thought he was loo black. The shame of this whole problem is that so many stu- dents failed to recognize that Paul was color blind when it came to his students. He re- garded them as equals and treated them that way." Mrs. Cabell said: "In his last three or four days, he did not eat or sleep properly. "He (old me that if be could get rid of four or five students who did not know what they wanted or why they incited, the rest of the school would caun down. "The day before he died, he told me that a bunch of sopho- more boys and girls had worn blue jeans to school, an incident which he regarded as a tip of I that a big fight was in the off- ing. He said he thought the thing at the school was going to blow any day and he spoke ol how sick society was in gen- eral." William. Vatign, 18, a black senior, said: "I hope things are better but I hear a lot of stu- dents saying they are just wait- ing until the 15 or 20 policemen are withdrawn from the school grounds and then they say you will see a blowup, so I am not certain how much good Mr. Cabeli's death did in getting us together. MR. WONDERFUt-A Toronto woman named finally found "Mr. Wonderful" the handsome stranger she met on a bus four years ago. Simone's Mr. Wonderful wasn't so wonderful after all and Mr. Wonderful decided she wasn't so hot herself. They met again, had a wonder- ful night on the town and broke up. fc Brewed from the choicest hops aricl malt and pure Rocky Mountain spring water Welcome to the best in beer PUT TO WORK Employable welfare recipi- ents in New York City have been put to work cleaning parks.
