Mob Bill Has Support Of Maiorily NEW YORK — An indication that the Federal Anti-lynching bill has the full support of the majority of Senators, was voiced by Seiiltor- Robert F. Wagner, one of the auCKors of the biU, in a statement issued in Wash ington March. 13, at the close of Senate Sub-committee hearings on the bill. .... The full statement issued by Wagner, explaining his own stand, and the relationship of the fight for this bill to the Internal- tional situation follows: “The favoraible report of the Auti-Iynching till by tlie StA- committee of the Judicit^ry Com mittee, immediately upon the close of hearings tod^y, is a prrntifying indfEation of the over wtekning support for the bill in th(> Senate. In tliese times, when democracy is on trial throughout the civilized world, it is especially fitting ^rtd especially important to safeguard libertiea of evei^ tiona^^eans the civil rights anfl t\r€ personal liberties of every American citisen, howeper bum ble and whatever his ra^e or Color. The pending bill is sfmilar .ous ^lui-iynching me^^ sures which I have joined in pressing for enactmenjLj^ince the year 1934. For six years the is sue h|Lti been discussed and de bated by the Senate as fully as any issue ever presented to Congrss and the American peo- 'pie. In that time, 73 lynchings have occurried. The number of lynching* has varied with signifi cant reguljgirity as the thread of legislation has seemed more or less possible of fulfillment. If the threat- of a federal ^nti- 1} aching bill can minimize or put a temporary hight to lynching, that is the best argument for a Federal nti lynching Ifi#. Al though a comparatively small number of lynchings occurred last y&iir, we have no assurance whatever that lynchings will cc^'tinue to decline if this legisla tion is shelved. There must be a definite and peri)Uinent end to the barbarous practice of lynch ing, which haa held America up to ridicule contempt among ths common people of many lands.” Charlotte High Wins Dramatic Tourney Prize (RAZiEIGiH, (Special) — F>>r what Consider^ %y judges ai (1 a capacity audience to be ,aai excellent performance, the West Charlotte High School Drama tics Club of Charlotte was nam ed winner over eight other schools in the finals of the North Carolina High School Dr^ma Tournament held Saturday, March 16, fit Shaw Univer*ity ard was awarded the^aul Green Cup donated by P,Sul Green fok* the most outstanding dramatics club in the tournament.

Whitehead, “If we are to vindicate our proud position as the foremost example of functioning De- mc&racy, we must help the states to stamp out for all times the spirit of the lynching mob. It is my sincere hope and belief tl^ this issue will be settled once and for all at this sossion of Congress.” Adell Carryall, Samuel Cobb; Mr. and Mrs. Watson, Miss Cath arine Jones, William Nutall, Miss Annie Moore, George Gilmore Min, Lucila Dannis, Geo.
