pfectlon tor her Joe In the exciting CinemiiScoiie musical, "(.'nrinen
lines," now unreeling at the Texas theatre. Also among the stars of
|scar Bammersteln's jazzed-up "Carmen'' Is I'earl Bailey.
I This modernized Terslon of the
limed George Bizet opera Is ex-
iting In its romantic story content,
lid thrilling in its music.
I Dorothy Daudrldge, in the title
pie, is n fickle dame, sultry, tempt-
and carefree. Belafonte, Miss
andridge's leading man, Joe, with
i rugged good looks, and excellent
ping, also scores sensationally,
I . . .
The voices of Miss Dandridge and
Belafonte, are dubbed in by off-
screen oiieratlc voices, although both
are star vocalists, but non-opcratlc.
I'earl Bailey, however, does her
own singing as Carmen's hep girl
friend who "lives off the fat-heads
of the land."

Recalls Presidential Meetings
In his brief eulogy Dr. Tobias
lied instances in which White
d served as spokesman for dele-
tions in conferences with Presf-
nts Roosevelt, Trumnn and Elsen-
wor. Tiiese conferences, he said,
d been fruitful in that they open-
the way to expand Job oppor-
nities for Negroes, to the elimlna-
n of segregation !n the armed
'vices and to the curtailment of
•inl discrimination in Wnshing-
i. They also served to help "move
i» conscience of America into ag-
essive action against the double
UK lard of citizenship based on
Tliose achievements in "top level
iiivrences" are important, Dr. To-
asserted, "because they illus-
t»i the method of the NAACP in
iliiig with controversial issues
>)V ing out of race discrimination."
'It is a method that blinks no
i'ts and engages in no double talk,
it it is also a method that does
t make use of rabble-rousing as a
•bnique ... It is a method that
>ki forward to the completion of
icoln's work of Emancipation and
> realization of his dream of free-
in for all in the true American
Helped (he Disadvantaged
Pen (lie all over the world whose
es had been enriched by White's
rk are "looking this way and
ntlfs to be a part of this tribute,"
i nUaCP spokesman said. Among
w lie cited "sharecroppers of the
ep Tsonth who are no longer vote-
s; dining car waiters and Pull-
porters who are now privil-
to serve their own people as
■f do other people without do-
mination; public.school teachers
ose salaries are no longer de-
mined by the color of their skin;
vicemen in every department of
t, defense who have been liberat-
from Jim Crowlsm; workers of
kinds who now enjoy union
ilection; children who have been
ted to a plane of self-respect by
Supreme court decision in the
iool cases; and thousands of
lie people who have been llber-
4 from the blighting evil of race
\nd beyond our shores, he said,
e leaders of millions of the dark-
peoples of the world like Nehru

rumah of the C»ld coast, Azlklwe
Ki«erl«, Tubman U Liberia,!
l&ille Selassie of Ethiopia, Manley
or Jamaica; Maglolre of Haiti and
others now Join us in this tribute."
Walter White's admonition, Dr.
Tobias concluded, would lie: "Board
monitors, staff, constituency and
staff of the NAACP, close ranks aud
go courageously ahead to the ac-
complishment of the unfinished task
with assurance of ever growing
support from those who cherish the
ideals for which we stand."

matorium for cremntion.
