Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - June 6, 1958, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
The it. Pleasant news a. I Al . L i a j a a warmer these Days by George e. Sokolsky Powell the negro leaders of the re pub i Alcan party at least one of whom May be responsible for Adam Clayton Powell s income tax troubles spent most of a Day at the new York county committee Headquarters in the National Republican club arguing with Thomas j. Curran and mrs. Preston Davie vice about nominating a Democrat who has a Long record of left Wing associations As tim Republican candidate Lur Congress in Harlem. No one Marie a speech favourable to Powell. No one spoke Well or even kindly of him. In fact the negro leaders denounced Hun spoke unfavourably of his character Etc., Etc. Then they demanded he be nominated. Vol. So no. 133 it. Pleasant Iowa Friday evening ii neti. 1058 a saw it was not corrupted it afraid not to were afraid that they had been was that they were \ nominate him.

Degaulle now officers tells5 rebels of girls 4-h Are installed expecting Large Rowel monday i Cha iou at would not be Able to walk the streets of Harlem if they failed to nominate him the democrats to whom he belongs threw him Over thu it republicans to whom he never belonged dared not avoid him. One negro Republican Leader blamed president Eisenhower for All the i roubles. He said that when the negroes of Harlem thought that Powell had ruined himself a Deal was made for Powell to come out for Eisenhower in the 1956 Clee Tum and Powell was Given an Opportunity to exhibit hts strength in a his income tax ease. Fourteen months want by before the United states attorney in new York did anything in the matter and then Only after the grand jury threaten i to go off on its own. This is something the Senate judiciary committee might look into one Day. In the broadest american sense the Powell Case is am somatic of a frightening situation. Adam Clayton Powell jr., is first of All a negro he has made being a negro a career and a profession. He is a Clergyman and a member of Congress but most of All. He is a demagogue among his own people. He Al cps them stirred up and As Long As they Are sit ired up he will pose enormous Power in new York City. He is a Man of Superb intelligence who however has his own game to play. I by negro and puerto rican population in new York county can control the election. Such a situation is also developing in Brooklyn in and the Bronx. The puerto Picans dislike being classed As negroes which Many of them Are not but they Are discriminated against socially and economically in this Community and they Are being forced by circumstances to associate themselves with such a leadership As Powell a. They have produced no equal leadership of their own. New York City is normally democratic. Its leadership has moved from Irish to italian. The Republican party is moribund and lacks leadership altogether it exists Only on patronage receivership and similar prerequisites that Are a exclusively advantageous to lawyers. Most of the kind of people usually Republican in Northern cities live and vote in the suburbs some even in other states like Connecticut and new Jersey where the tax Situa tons Are preferable.
