METHOD Npskin's Store Chain Celebrates 48fh Anniversary Beginning May 15 This month Moskin's, store en tens its 48th succc-rul year of retail ready-to-wea, selling Ac- rording. to D. J. V'ilcox, manager of the local cianch store, the anniversary cele'.iation is being climaxed by t» mammotn birthday sale starnr.g Mat. 15 and continuing thrx'gh Mav 31. Working on a popular, pay-as- voa-wear credit pltn, the Mo', kin's store, located at 171 S. Higi, st., features qua-it. wear in» apparel for men, woven and chil dren, as well as nationally advertised Jewelry, watci.es and radios' General office* are locate-*. in the heart of N. fork City's mammoth garment ctnter. Moskin's store is an important link in a chain o* 104 retail clothing and jewelry stores, thc fii-st ' of which **•-.. openeo in Lima, 0.. at the turn of thc ccr- tury. These stores extend from the Atlantic seaboaro inward to the midwest and to -"be south. The tabulation of last Tuesday'* primary election brought forth two big surprises. One wa* tho ■mashing victory Sen. Estes* Kefauver s convention delegates scored over those pledged to former Sen. Robert J. Buckley, and the other tha extremely feeble showing Sen. Roscoe R. Walcuti made In hi* bid for the Republican gubernatorial nomination. Unofficial reports gave Kefauver and Buckley 27 district delegates and ei*Cht at-large delegates for a total of 81 convention votes each. Among those stemming the crest of the surprising Kefauver tidal wavo were two Negroes. Att'y Joseph Bowman, an at-large delegate of Coiumbus and John O. Holly of Cleveland, an at-large alternate delegate. Besides Bowman and Holly, thc Democrats als0 elscted Charles V. Carr a Cleveland councilman, as a district alternate. While the Democrats were electing the three mentioned above, the Republicans were electing two Negro at-large alternates anu tw* district alternate delegates. The at-large position* went to Att'y William Lovelace of Cincinnati and Att'y John Pegg of Cleveland, and Att'y W. S. Lyman, of Columbus, and Dr. W. H. Hunter, of Cleveland, will serve as district alternates. The GOP delegates ar* pledged to Sen. Robert A. Taft. -while the Democrat* are divided between Sen. Kefauver and Robert J. Buckley. OTHERS EQUALLY AS FORTUNATE While Negro convention candidate* were extremely successful in the primary contest, many others were equally ^as fortunate in (heir quest tor nomination on the state ballot. Most outstanding among this group nominated were two Clove* land Republicans, Lawrence O. Payne as a congrcssion*i candidate tn tbe 21st district and Harry E. Davis as a candidate for a seat in th* state Senate. Payne racked up a total of 11,264 vote? to his rival's S828 and Davis polled an amasing 78,035 votes for second place on a list of 12 candidates. SAUNDERS ALSO A WINNER Also winning on the legislative ticket at Cleveland was William B. Saunders, who ran third in a 43 man contest to be tlit only Negro nominated for the House in that city. Other successful* were Fredrick Bowers of Dayton and A, Bruce McClure, Cincinnati, both Republicans and members oi the present assembly, jvhile Edmund B. Paxton, Columbus; Arthur C. Elliott, Cincinnati, and Rupert Stokes, Toledo, were nominated tn the Democratic ".allot. C. Josef McLin, Sr., of Dayton, who sought nomination to the state Senate on the Democratic ticket, polled 4968 vetcj for last p'ace in a four man race. Although Negro Democratic candidates were fairly successful in Columbus, Toledo and Cincinnati, they dismally failed in Cleveland. •vhcre their party hasn't nominated a Negro for state office in re. cent times. ELATED OVER OTHER NOMINATIONS Of course it is natural for us to rejoice at the success of candidates of our group, but we should also be elated at the nomination of many others who have demonstrated their friendliness toward due problems. Among this group pominated wore Rep. Lowell Fes* (IL, Yellow Springs) for the state Senate from the 6th-6th district; Sen. Ross Pepples (R., Lima), the 32nd district, and with no Democratic opposition he is assured of election next November. In the 35th district. Sen. Fred Danner (R., Akron) and Sen. Joseph Nutt, Jr. (R.), and Sen. Mark McElroy (D.), botn of the 25ta . istrict (Cleveland). So as we scan the list of winners on the legislative ballot, it is indeed encouraging to find a sufficient number who heve supported FEPC proposals in the past to assure us of a Sizable block of liberals who wih serve in both houses during the 100th general assembly. e • e Turning to the results of the Republican gubernatorial contest in which Charles P. Taft of Cincinnati dealt a sound trouncing to former Gov. Thomas J. Herbert and FEPC'a arch foe, Roscoe R. Wai. rutt, of Columbus, we find very little to review. Like most Negroes, we were not nearly as much concerned with whether Taft or Herbert won the nomination, a* we were with Waicutt losing. And now that that happy feat haa been accomplished, we can only say thanks to the electosate for a job well done. .And ta Mr. Waicutt, are say your chicken, came tr> roost and thanks for riving Negroes outside of Franklin county tbe chance they've waited for tor a long time . . . to voice their sentiment toward yen via the ballot. Had yoa not been such aa uncompromu. in* loo of FEPC, tbe election retultt might have told a different story. It is my guess. Sen. Waicutt, that your defeat has made it possible for many of us to look upon the gubernatorial race next fall with much ease and * soothing satisfaction, for regardless to it* outcome, you can hardly expect any favors or recognition from either Lausche or Taft. So it seems'to me senator, your political goose is cooked and your career as a public servant has finally com* to aa ignominious end. wm. i ■asssamnussnsHpBBasWsaB TTMRS OLHS0 ELK RULER WEAVER ■ . ■ On Page 2 *»« •>••*? i-rtAMK.
