Volume 4-No. 5 PORTLAND, OREGON, SEPTEMBER 20, 1945 10 Cents a Copy ERVIN JONES INQUEST SET FOR OCTOBER 19TH Killing of Negro to Be Aired· Paratroopers 'f 'll T 'f ' Fight Fires in October 1st Will Observations W1 e W1 Return to eStl Y Northwest \-Voods Mark Start of New Church Bldg. Plans are underway to establish a Negro controllOn Police Brutality At a meeting held Thursday afternoon in the office of District Attornev Thomas Handley, Attorney Irvin Goodman and a representative committee of white and Negro citizens were 1>romisecl a coroner's inquest would be held on October 9 at 9 :30 a. m. in Judge Crawford's court for the purpose of bringing to light the full facts involved in the police killing of Ervin Jones. former resident of Guild's Lake. District Attorney Ilandlev revealed that an opinion handed clown bv the state attorney-general rendered it impossible for the widow Jones and her relatiYes. who were eve witne-3ses to the shooting, to be returned to Portiand at the state's expense. Rev. George Brown of Guild's Lake explained that a sum of $500 was needed to defray the traveling expenses of this g-roup. He stated that a sum of $216 had been received in the form of contributions. Handley thereupon insi-3ted that if the inquest was held, he wanted to see that the widow was present. He gave a personal check for $120 to guarantee her arrival in Portland by the scheduled elate. Handley made. it clear that this was a personal gift and had no official implications whatsoever. He said, "I am not of the opinion that a killing is ever justified merely because the superior officer of a police department exonerates his subordinate in a case of this type. If there are e.xtenuating circumstances in this case, I want them to be brought to light." A question arose over the matter of a previou request for an inquest having been refused by Deputy District Attornev John Collier. Handley claimed that an inquest was not denied but a grand jury investigation was deemed impossible under the circumstances. • Race Relations Clinic Held 1\11 all-dar clinic on race relation!- was held Thur:-;day nt the Puhlic Ser\'icc huil<ling and :i.t Lihr:1n hall.
