The "World Telegram" issue of April 20, 1949, reported that at the Communist sponsored Iorld Peace Conference in Paris PAUL ROBESON declared that the focal point of world Fascism is the United States and that 1- resident &#39;I?.&#39;iiAi7&#39;3 program for African development meant =he&#39;i e1a&#39;v-ery-=-&#39; for millions oi Negroes. ROBESON reportedly In-ought the eighteen hundred dele&#39; gates to the conference to their feet with a call for "a ght for friendship with Russia." He then stated that American Negroes never would go to
war tor the United States against Russia.

The "Post

RCFESOH sanga Rusian anthem. The rst verse, sung in R-ueeian, was greeted quietly; however, when he sang the second verse in English, which most of the audience understood, a demonstration started, which for a time drowned out the singer. Anti-Communists whistled loudly and many left the hell in
protest. H"e-Connunists_ answered with aloud cheers and frantic. applause.

Following the

The imperialists are tuming their rapacious stares more frequently and more regularly on the African continent. In their search for cheap labor and crude iron, they are seeking new bases in Africa and the West Indies, after their ignominious defeat in China. American capital is striving to stretch its control over South Africa just as it did over the Philippines.
