UNITED NATIONS, N. T.—Dip-

recently by Prince Bernhard at a
press conference In Soestdljlk, the

"I think the European Is over-
alarmed by what he may have read
or heard of apartheid.
"It Is both wrong and stupid for
anyone not Intimately acquainted, at
first hand, with South Africa's
domestic problems to attempt to
comment on them."
The prince had just returned to
the NetherlnndB from a two weeks'
official visit to the Union.
The best answer to Prince Bern-
hard's contention that only offi-
cialdom of the Nationalist govern-
ment of the Union "understands"
apartheid and Its "necessity" is the
statement Issued jointly by the
Afrlcnn National congress, Transva-

South African Colored People's or-
While the statement was original-
ly Intended for the delegation from
the Commonwealth Parliamentary
association conference which accept-
ed the official Invitation of the
South African government to visit
the country, the facts referred to
definitely weakened the argument
of Prince Bernhard.
The South African government
has become Increasingly conscious
of the international publicity which
has been focused on the policy of
apartheid particularly by the UN.
Consequently, It is trying to enlist
"reasonable" public opinion so that
apartheid, thoroughly condemned
by U. N. official committees and
commissions, may be "understood,"
that Is, from the viewpoint of the
Tlint Is the reason why African,
Indian and colored political organ-
izations sought to counter the ef-
fects of the "official visit."
In conclusion, the statement
urged tho delegates visiting the
Union to make an earnest effort
to sco tiie real conditions of the
troubled country without the "of-
ficial" escort of the Union govern-

The segregation of Negro prison-

Threat to Jobs
Seen to Negroes
In Nuclear Age
By the Associated Negro Press
BROOKLYN—Warning was given
by the National Manpower council
last week that the nation must
make amends in Its training of
skilled workers and technicians for
the nuclear age.
The essence of the recommenda-
tion of the Columbia Graduate
School of busings was—brooder nnd
better school vocational training,
more Intelligent vocational guidance,
and an end of race, sex and other
discriminations that freeze much
manpower potential in lower, un-
The findings were the results of
a study headed by James D. Zeller-
mach under a Ford Foundation
The greatest untapped reservoir
of skills, the report suggested, is
tbat of persons who are discrimi-
nated against. Negroes were esti-
mated to comprise only about 4 per
cent of craftsmen and foremen and
4 iter cent of medical and dental
technicians. This is less than half
the percentnge of Negroes In the
working force as a whole, which Is
9 per cent
"I.nrge segments of the American
population are denied access to
work and training In many skilled
occupations hocause of widespread
prejudices against racial and eth-
nic groups" the study said. "Dis-
crimination is strongest and most
widespread in the case of Negroes,
but there are similar barriers for
Spanish-speaking persons, Orientals,
Jews and other groups.
"While discrimination is most rig-
id In the South, it exists in every
section of the country.
"The push-button factory of the
nuclear age will require more tech-
nicians, more skilled workers. The
men to be displaced will be the,
unskilled laborer, the common fac-
tory hands," the report said.
"Today even a hand trucker must
be able to interpret charts to see
where supplies are needed."
Clem McGarlty, 250 Guthrie, com-
plained to police that Ills brother,
Joe McGarlty, of a 700 block Plain-
view address (servants quarters),
had "assaulted him with a long
knife," and thnt Joe had called
Clem on the telephone, nnd told
Clem that he was going to kill him.

Harris had been taken to the hos-
pital, Mrs. Jones said that "I just

Science Shrinks Piles
New Way Without Surgery
Find* Healing Sub*tance That Doe* Both—
Relieve* Pain—Shrink* Hemorrhoid*
New York, >. Y. (Special) —
For the first time Bcience has
found a new healing substance
with the astonishing ability to
shrink hemorrhoids and to relieve
In one hemorrhoid caBe after
another, "very striking improve-
ment" was reported and verified
by doctors' observations.
Pain was relieved promptly.
And, while gently relieving pain,
actual reduction or retraction
(shrinking) took place.
And most amazing of all—this
improvement was maintained in
cases where doctors' observations
were continued over a period of
many months I
In fact, results were so thor-
ough that sufferers were able to
make such astonishing statement*
a* "Pile* have ceased to be •
Siroblem!" And among these suf-
erers were a very wide variety
of hemorrhoid conditions, some of
10 to 20 years' standing.
All this, without the use of
narcotics, anesthetics or astrin-
gents of any kind. The secret is
a new healing substance (Bio-
Dyne* ) —the discovery of a world-
famous research institution. Al-
ready, Bio-Dyne is in wide use
for healing injured tissue on all
parts of the body.
Now this new healing substance
is offered in ointment form for
hemorrhoids under the name
Preparation H.* The price is only
984 a tube including an appli-
cator. The name to ask for is
Preparation H-at all drug stores.
Ana remember —if not entirely
satisfied-your money will bo re-
funded promptly. tj.a. Pit. on.
