Seminary Singers Of Boston University
Give Concert At Bennett College
Tbe Seminary Slngen of the Boaton Cnivenity School of Theology
Negro and white men will eat
at the same tables at 22 points
throughout the south where the
Boston University’s Seminary
Singers have scheduled concerts
of religious music, a spokesman,
for that 51-voice inter-racial
group reported at a concert at
Bennett College last night.
The Seminary Singers, which
have both Negro and white sin
gers, have requested accommo
dations where the Southern con
certs are scheduled for all mem
bers of their choir to eat to
gether, the spolcesman said, to
promote racial harmony and
unified spirits for the choir
The concert at Bennett last
night was one of the 22 sche
duled in 10 southern states and
the District of Columbia. The
concerts are part of the inter
racial group’s annual winter
Organized in 1928 by the pre
sent director, Dr. James R.
Houghton, the Singers have
traveled from coast to coast and
from the Great Lakes to the Gull
Huring the past quarter century.
Five times they have provided
the music at tfce General Con-
ferences of the Methodist
Coming from 19 different sta
tes and touching the four cdmers
of the nation plus a member
from Finland, tbe Seminary Sin
gers present a wide representa
tion of inter-racial Integration.
At Bennett the Singers pre
sented a program of three groups
of vocal numbers and solos by
Dr. Houghton and Charlotte
Zimmer Dixon, contralto guest
artist. Other selections were
performed by the accomiMmists,
H. Trail Heitzenrater, and Semi
VICTORY OVER POLIO
“These Americans are a pe
culiar people," Alexis de Toc-
queville told his fellow French
men. “When some citizen in a
community decides that some
thing is needed, he thereupon
communicates this sense of need
to his neighbors. Promptly a
committee is brought into 6X1?=*
tence. And, in a very short time
this committee has begun to
meet the need. All of this is
done without reference to any
official or any bureaucracy.”
This statement was made by
the great student of democracy
in 1832. It could serve very well
as a capsule description of the
fight launched against polio
through the March of Dimes.
While the human impulse be
hind the March of Dimes is not
unique in Americb, the type of
voluntary, non-governmental or
ganization represented by the
National Foundation for Infan
tile Paralysis is uniquely Ameri
can. Nowhere else in the world
Across the broad expanse of
this great nation and in the far-
flung reaches of its possessions
and territories, a determined
people have banded together
voluntarily in 3,100 chapters—
joined hands, as it were in the
mounting battle against a cripp
It matters not at all that a
certain county in Montana hasn’t
had a polio case within the me
mory of its oldest citizen. Nor
does it matter that a rural coun
ty in Missouri raises less than
$300 in the March of Dimes
while a populous county in Ohio
contributes over $400,000. They
are all pooling the fruits of their
hearts and their hands in a mas
sive cooperative assault on this
menace to every American home
wherever that home may be.
It has been said often in this
connection that polio is a na
tional problem. It may very well
be that it is an international one
as well. Because, once the prob
lem Is solved in this country it
will be only a matter of time be
fore the entire world Is freed of
And this great day may be
nearer than we think. Scientific
search for a preventive of pa
ralytic polio recently has moved
out of the laboratories and into
the arena. Some 55,000 Ameri
can children Joined the ranks of
polio-fighting volunteers by per
mitting themselves to be inocu
lated, half of them with a com
mon blood substance which, as
it later developed, was shown
to give marked, if temporary,
protection against the ravages
of this disease. The other half
acted as controls.
Yes, Americans who came to
the rescue of a Japan rocked by
earthquake in 1923, who sent
milliong of tony of food
clothing to a war-torn Europe
in 1920; whose contributions to
CARE have totaled more than
people have reason to hope that

as “undemocratic” and “a viola
tion of federal policy,” Senator
Hubert H. Humphrey today, re
leased the text of correspon
dence he has had with Assistant
Secretary of Defense Anna M.
Rosenberg and Commissioner of
Education Earl J. McGrath, rela
tive to the segregation of Negro
school children on military posts
in Texas, Oklahoma and Va.
Senator Humphrey’s interven
tion followed conferences with
Clarence Mitchell, director of
the Washington Bureau of the
National Association for the Ad
vancement of Colored People.
Mitchell had protested to the
Department of defense and the
Office of Education, urging im
mediate abolition of segregation
on all military posts. The re
sponsibility for the jim crow
pattern was placed upon the
Office of Education by Mrs.
Rosenberg, who, in a letter to
Dr. McGrath, said that “It Is our
feeling that this practice is im-
satisfactory and is violative not
only of the policy of the Depart-'
ment of Defeijse but also con
travenes the policy set forth by
