Transcript CHAIRMANt Do your suppose that the peoples south of the border are aware of this situation here in Texas? MR. PERALES: Ishould say they arel Citizens from those countries are now travelling in Texas. Besides-,students from those nations are perfecting their knowledge of aviation in Randolph and Kelly Fields. Naturally, they have eyes and ears the same as we hsara. I will give you an illustration; a few weeks ago an aviator from one of the Central American Republics was denied seevice at a barber shop in Harlandale.

And here is, precisely, where our Federal and State Governments can render a great service, inasmuch as Pan American organizations and service clubs with Pan American leanings have failed to do anything about it. The Bongress of the United States and the Texas Legislature should each pass an Anti-Race Hatred Law similar to the one now in force in the State of New Jersey, making it unlawful for any person to incite racial prejudice, by word or deed, against members of the Caucasian Race.

Another very constructive measure our^Governments could take would be to send us a corps of Anglo-American lecturers and writers to wage a vigorous campaign among our
