On the 

by c a. b. 

Last Thursday after- 
noon I left the Hall of 
Justice at 4:30 p. m., 
reached the corner of 
Fifth and Broadway about 
20 minutes of five. 

I observed a '*U" cari; 
approaching. As the car 
came to a halt at the Fifth 
and Broadway rntcrscc- 
tion, it was already filled 
tQ capacity.' In front of 
me, on the side and in 
back, the crowd of war 
workers, coming from all 
parts of the cit>' and head- 
ed for the single ghetto 
community in which they 
are forced to live, were a 
home-bound mob bitterly 
determined, each and 
every one, to board THAT 
street car. 

Most of the workers, I 
presume, were in my po- 
sition, for I just had to be 
in my office at 41st and 
Central avenue at 5 p, m. 
a There was a free-for-all 
J scramble. The hundred 
' and one person? waking 
for this car joined me as I 
made a. dive, got one foot 
on J the first step of the 
rear Entrance and one 
hand on the dividing rod. 
When the car made a 
lurch in starting I would 
have ^( the track* and 
someone else 'would be 
writing my columa this 
week telling you how it 
hajppebcd had it not been 
for' a strong young arm 
that- reached down, got a 
iirni^grip on niy shoulder 
and held me f ast. j^ 
As the car rattled on 
^_<hrough a maze of traffic. 
the Conductor stopped at 
each intersection and more 
people got bn. When we 
finally reached Central 
tvenuC and started on the 
home stretch it looked like 
a human Christmas tree. 
The car literally bulged. 
5^ It is needless to say that 
this is jjurcly a human in- 
terest story. But it has its 
traRic side- ij ! 

This "U" cat Ms routed 
through the Eastside, 
heavily jMjpulatcd by Ne- 
gro war workers and a

Class whites.

inspired by the fifth column in 
Detroit this week, and in other

A telegram ; to this effect has

signed by virtually every mem-

"We of the theatrical profes- 
sion," wired the actors, "deplore 
the outrageous manifestation of 
disruptive clenMnts responsible 
for the anti-Negr? riots in De- 
troit or anywhere.' It is irrecon- 
cilable that a people fighting to 
free the world from tyranny, 
brutality and intolerance should 
within their own ranks tolerate 
such acts. . . .| 

"Along with all other Ameri- 
cans who have the welfare of 
their country at heart, we urge 
that the strongest measures be 
taken hy you. Mr. President, to 
punish the guilty ones to the full 
extent of the Ifiw." 

Noted amontf the signers were 
Paul Muni of "Counsellor-at- 
Law"; Miriam Hopldns and Con- 
rad Nagel of i'The Skin of Our

While more Negroes have been 
employed in nearly all war in- 
dustries, the increase has been 
uneven, slight in isome instances 
and marked in others. The num- 
ber of Negroes at rworlc in tank 
factories more than doubled dur- 
ing the period reported, while 
total employment in that indus- 
try increased only 31.3 per cent. 
In the aircraft industry Negro 
employment increased 96.1 per 
cent in comparison to a total em- 
ployment increase of 35.4 per 
cent, two and % per cent more 
Negroes were making motor ve- 
hicles in November, 1942, than in 
May of that year, though total 
employment in the industry in- 
creased only .8.6 per cent. In ship- 
building, Negro employment in- 
creased 62.8 per cent between 
May, 1942, and Noveniber. 1942. 
In spite of this increase, war 
manpower officials pofnted out, 
the extent of Negro employment 
varies vWdely from industry to 
industry. In March, 1943, Negroes 
comprised only a fraction of one 
per cent of total employment 
in the fireworks and pyrotechnics 
industry and less than 2 per cent 
In the manufacture of electrical 
equipment for industrial use. 
metal working machinery and 
scientific instruments. In second- 
ary smelting and refining of, non- 
ferrous meUls they compriwd 
30.1 per cent of toUl employ- 
ment, in bituminous coal mining, 
23.1 per cent and in blast furn- 
aces, steel wofkk and rolling 
mills, 12.2 per cent'

It was pointed out| however, 
thaj the increased employment 
of Negroes in war industry, grati- 
fying as it -tfta, did not repre- 
sent an adequate utilization of 
Negroes In some areas and some 
plants. The proportion of Negroes 
in war industries, it was stated, 
is not yet commensurate with 
their proportion of the labor force 
and only about 7 per cent of 4he 
employment In war industries. 
Several factors account for this — 
geographic distribution of the 
Negro labor force in relation to 
geographic distribution of war 
contracts, limited occupational 
and training opportunities here- 
af ore afforded Ne|^ workers, 
and' race p^judjce. < j .„, . I

Under Rze 

26— The CommiMioners o^ 
the District of Columbia 
have renewed their efforts 
to wrest from Negroes ad- 
ministrationi of the Office 

of Recorder of Deeds. 

In companion bills introduced 
in the Senate and House after 
drafting by the iDistrict officials, 
it is sought to removf from the 
Recorded of Deeds office its di- 
vision of accounts and disburse- 

^mMm the bttis, S-12S1 and 
HB-M3X was* totreduead by 
Senator Pot McCarran* Hevodo* 
and Bepb Jeaaiags Bandelph. 
W. Va., OS tbe nsv^ctiv* cfaatr- 
mea ef the Seaote aad House 
CoBunlttae oa tbe Distsf ct ef 
Calnmbta, it is aet boltoyed 
tliot either ef the Coagrassawa 
favoors tte msosiue, but iatre- 
duced them as eeurtesles te the 
Distzlct Cemmiasieaeis. 
The provisions of the measure 
are the same as were included 
in the 1944 appropriation bjlll- at 
the Commissioners' request. 

When the appropriation bill 
was before the House, it agreed 
unanimously that the provision 
should be stricken as an un- 
warranted transfer of a; Federal 
function ,>to tbe Jocal govern- 

Irked aad surprised at Uds 
Reuse action, aad detarmiaed 
te gala eeatrol of the Beeordei's 
office, the Cemnilssi oners' hod 
their aides draft an indepisn- 
dent biU which would accomp- 
lish the same p u rpose that tbe 
Bouse last April defeated. 
The bill provides that "all 
fimds 'now or hereafter appro- 
priated tor the expenses of the 
office of Recorder of Deeds • • • 
ef the District of Columbia shall 
)>e withdrawn from the Treasury 
of the United States only on re- 
quisitions approved by theCom- 
mlasioners of the District of Co- 
lumbia and disbursed by the dis- 
bursing officer of the District of 
Columbia upon vouchers previ- 
ously audited and approved by 
the auditor of the District of 
Columbia. " • 

To transfer these functions to 
the municipal authorities would 
rid the office if its national im- 
portance and reduce it, to a lesser 
bureau imder District supervi- 
sion, which is what the Commis- 
sioners have been urging for the 
past twenty years. 

Noffoea tbrenghent the eena- 
try. for tbe post M yean, have 
prided tbeauelvas ia tbe fact 
that tbe Becoxder ef Deeds was 
eae Negio effldal ia actual 
charge ef his efficaw with au- 
thority te hire his owa persea- 
ael aad te dlsbuise his ewa 

The introduction of thMe bills 
is viewed as the Commissioners' 
contribution to the efforts design- 
ed to rid Negroes of positions of 
importance in the Feedral Gov- 

Even if the bill passes, it Is 
believed that the President would 
veto It as he has taken an un- 
usual friendly interest in the 
Recorder's office, and in 1940,' 
he broke the ground for a new 
Recorder of Deeds building, the 
erection of which the Commis- 
sioners had bitterly opposed. 





Thirty- three war nuraeriea and 
child care centeis tn caie for ap^ 

proximately 1,900 children of Ne^ 
gro war working mothers were 
among those approved last week 
by the President, according to an 
announcement by Major General 
Philip B. fleming. Federal Woriu 
Administrator. These nurseries 
and child care centers are made 
available ynder the' Lanham Act 
to communities where mothers 
must work in order to meet the 
manpower needs in direct and 
indirect war industries. 

To date, the Federal Works 
Agtocy has Msisted local sponr 
sors in establishing and matn- 
taining 333 war nurseries and 
child care centers for 16,196 Ne- 
gro children between the ages 
of two and fourteen. Among the 
projects approved last week were 
two nurseries and one child care 
center In Biloxi, Mississippi, to 
care for children of mdOim who 
work in numerous canneries.

Stop at Crosswalks 

A great inany Los Angeles mo- 
torists seem unaware that they 
are required by law to yield the 
right of way to pedestrians cross- 
ing streets in crosswalks. Others 
do not realize that crosswalks 
exist only where lines are paint- 
ed on the surface of the stteet, 
but at EVERY intotseetion. Until 
the multitude of wartime pedes- 
trians, forced from th''eir cari Jty 
tii^ and gasoline rationing, are 
thoroughly experienced in the 
hazards of walking in traffic, 
drivers will have to exercise ex- 
tra caution wherever they are en- 
countered. Remember, a pedes- 
trian in ' a crosawalk is a ^TOT 
sign! ! *

That is the word which Herr 

Hitler has flashed to^'-lUB 


American Fifth Column. 

The Klan, Hearst, Martin Dibs,' John Rankin and all 
the host of U, S. Hitler-lovers and!' Democracy-haters were 
quick to reply with th anti-Negro gftiear : campaign and 
race riots across the nation. j j : ^ 

The nation's entire, security 'is 'threatened by these 
outbreaks. ' j ; 

It is no accident that they otcur only in centeiW^of 
vital war prod uctiffn. ' . . • ' 

Preliminary investigation of the t)etroil riots indicates 
a thorough-going, planned conspiracy, with thugs assigned 
to street corners, stake-outs in the; pojlice department, and 
a press drive neatly coordinated. | 

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has rtbt yet acted 

on the Detroit outbreak and neither has its parent organi* 

zation, the Department of Justice. This inaction is strange* 

ly reminiscent of the complacency in the face of sabotage 

/ jvhich destroyed France. ,1 -^ 

J»roduction of ships, guns, plt^nejs and ammunition are 
the real answer to the Fifth Columft drive against Negro 
America. As production goals are reached and surpassed. 
Hitler's Fifth Column fails. Negro workers will deliver the 
goods. They ask only protection against those who would 
use race hate to destroy the nation. 

TOP LEFT: Here is what we |are fighting for— the

A hikrious weekend was spent by the Younger 
Setters, as they celebrated the 4th of July. Very few 
changes were made in the celebrating this year. The 
beaches, parks, and Val Verde were as popular as ever. 
For a while everybody had a vague idea that gas ra- 
tioning would curtail these annual trips, but judging 
the size of the crowds and number of cars at these 
special spots, you would never believe gas rationing 
existed. " ~~~~

just dug the'^cene, dressed fit 
to kill in their latest drapes. 
Wesleen Foster, Elweis Janles 
Lacey, Arbazlne Walder, apd 
Rosalia Smith were among the 
beach combers. Lincoln Park, 
the Jr's favorite 4th of July spot, 
wasn't as rough, but just as 
ready as it has been in the pMt. 
Large family picnics and a 
scene of quietness were, in evi- 
dence. If you were planning to 
be on a bunch of time, a riding 
habit was in order, or a pair of 
new draped slacks . . . Val Verde 
was 'just as popular, hot, and 
dusty as ever. The swimming 
pool was well filled with bath- 
ing beauties, a few local boys 
on leave from the army, 4 fs, 
and several defense workers. 
Renna Clarke, Paulette Dejoie, 
Carl Alexander, and Carl Peter- 
son were seen having a grand 
time ... All in all. the 4th of 
July was solidly celebrated.

his departed loved one the best, the niost bautiFul Final tribute which in-

Mrs. Craw, a Topeka, Kansas, 
high school teacher, is not only 
outstanding in her profession, 
but a genius in many diversi- 
fied fields. Among Mrs. Craw's 
outstanding talents is her bril- 
liant direction of dramas of re- 
ligious and civic community life, 

During her late husband's pas- 
torate at the First A. M. E. 
Church of this city, Mrs. Craw 
endeared herself to the people of 
Los Angeles, and pioneered in 
building young people's activi- 
ties in the church. 

Mother of Urban League exec- 
utive secretary, Floyd C. Coving- 
ton, Mrs. Craw plans on attend- 
ing the University of California 
while in the city. 

The California Eagle editor, 
many years a close triend of 
Mrs. Craw, welcomes her back 
to the city.

appearing last week- in the LOCK 
HEED- VEGA STAR, company pub- 
lication, and act accordingly. 

The Machinists union is dominated 
by an ante-bellum clause- in its national 
constitution barring Negro membership. 
The exclusion of these workers not only 
denies them full democracy on the job 
but seriously affetts unity of war work- 
ers and violates principles that are 
sacred in this people's war. 

! Lessons full of the meaning of this 
conflict can be learned by the Machin- 
ists' big-wigs from an editorial in the 
Julv 2 edition of the LOCKHEED- 
VEGA STAR, which reads: 

"One hundred and sixty-seven years 
ago— on July 4, 1776 — the Continental 
Congress signed the Declaration of In- 
dependence, in which it was declared, 
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, 
that all men are created -equal, that they 
are endowed by their Creator with cer- 
tain inalienable Rights, that amon^ these 
are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of 

"Eighty years ago — on November 19, 
1863, ten and one-hali months after his 
Emancipation Proclamation — President 
Lincoln delivered his famous Gettys- 
burg address whichopened with, "Four- 
score and seven years ago our fathers 
brought forth on (his continent a new 

i^ation, conceived in! liberty and dedi- 
cated to the proposition that all men arc 
created equal. 

"Since the Emancipation Proclama- 
tion, this country experienced eighty 
•years of wars and; pekce before another 
president issued a document aimed to 
give all races anjcqilial opportunity to 
live ur^der liberty an4 to pursue happi- 
ness. -- 

"On June 25, 1941 President Roose- 
velt issued an Executive Order stating 
that, "It is the policy of the United 
States to encourage fdll participktion in 
the national defense ptogram by all citi- 
zens of the United States, regardless of 
race, creed, color, or national origin, in 
the firm belief that the democratic way 
of life within the Nation can 'he de- 
fended -successfully only with the help 
and support of ajl groups within its 

. . . "Today three thousand Lockheed 
and Vega employees are Negroes. Prob- 
lems have arisen, but they have been 
minor and have been promptly over- 
come. The few difficulties that have 
arisen have been caused by. lack of un- 
derstanding by individual employees—* 
white and colored alike. 

"It can now ibe said that Negroes 
have rapidly taken their place as full- 
fledged produirers of Lockheed and 
Vega war planes^ which arc going forth 
to fight for the freediom of all nations 
and races ever)^vhereJ * 

"On this next Independence Day, 
Lockheed and Vega !will stand as an 
outstanding svmbcfl of Democracv At 

Picket Lines of the People's War 

The Negro picket's sign read, "We 
fight Jim-Ctowism Abroad — It Belongs 
in Germany — Not Here!" 

The White worker driving by stop- 
ped his car, spOkc to the picket, shook 
his hand, wished him luck, and, smil- 
ing broadly, drove, on. 

.That scene was repeated many, times, 
with a dozen variations, r Tuesday as 
pickets of the Shipj'ard Wbrkers Com- 
mittee for Equal Participation paid 
their compliments to the newly opened 
Jim-Crow office of the Boilermakers 
International at 41st place and Main 


Further, that policy renders fertile 
ground for the anti-war propaganda of 
fifth column socialist and Trotskyite 
groups, which are feverishly active at 
the yards. 

But. worst of all, 'the Boilermakers 
executives have surrendered before the 
very poison against \Vhich millions of 
American youth are today fighting with 
every ounce of their devotion. Racism, 
whereverit exists, is a triumph f*or Hit- 
ler, In a concrete manner, it leads di- 
rectly toward aiding Jiis cause. In the 
shipyards, the Boilernjiakers' strifc-prd- 

Operated by a handful of Negro ducing racism has wounded ship con 
stooges, the Jim-Crow office has been struction. 1 

It is heartening to jknow that thou- 
sands of white" workers, alive to the 
danger of Hitler's poison, have voiced 
full support oif the Negro workers, at 
the three harbor plantfe. The desperate, 
last-mjnute attempts ojf the Soilcrmak- 
ers top executives to. divide the Negro 
people, to buy out a; fe^ of theirieaders

working at Calship, Consolidated and 
Western Pipe and Steel plants. Dues 
collection is its sole function. The "aux- 
iliary" provides neither election of of- 
ficers or any other democratic partici- 
piation of its hoped-for membership.

Spreading Joy. 

■ — \ — By John Fowler 


Out to Eighth and Towne 
this morMng to welcome home 
Rev, Frederick D. Jordan after 
four weeks absence, during 
which time he was present at 
the mortgage burning at West- 
ern University in Kansas City, 
and met the Board of Directors 
of the Missionary Department 
of the A. M. E. Church. While 
In Philadelphia, Rev. Jordan 
visited the publishing houses 
of both the A. M. E. RevlUe 
and Christian Recorder; the 
Bishop's Council and attended 
several other important meet- 

During his trip Rot. Jordan 
preachad in New Terk. Erans- 
ton, lUinois, St. Louis and To- 
pako. Bis ratuzn was a laal 
joy to tiia buadrads of loyal 
members who hare sincaraly 
missed him. 

Rev. Jordan's sermon was 
brilliant and inspiring this 
Sunday, the subject of which 
was "Meeting Failure," in 
which he pointed out the two 
great failures among the 
twelve disciples, Judas and 
Peter. The disastrous affect of 
Judas' failure and the nianner 
in which he met it, the failure 
of Peter and how he overcame 
it and again won the appro- 
bation of Jesus, was particu- 
larly well stressed by Rev. Jor- 

The music seemed even bet- 
ter than usual. I thought per- 
haps it was because the choir 
rendered a favorite of mine, 
one I have loved for years, In- 
flamatus by Rossini. -I have 
heard this number sung by 
some of the best ^horal groups 
in the cOunlry. I've seen Mrs. 
J. O. Jones of Old Fifteenth 
Street, A. M. E., Oakland, 
direct it with Miss Lula Disard 
singing the solo; the great Joe 
Newday direct it in the Com- 
munity Church in Chicago; 
the great Minister of Music 
Ford of t^e U. L N. A. In Lib- 
erty Hall direct it with Rachel 
Walker singing the solo; Ma- | 
dam Outiey direct 800 voices 
singing it at the National Bap- 
tist Convention at Shrine Tem- 
ple, with, Carrie Daniels sing- 
ing the iolo part; Mrs. IMike 
and the chorus of the Wesley 
Chapel Choir directed by 
George Garner; but never have 
I heard or seen a more insp^- 
ed directior or choir than^ 
heard and saw Sundaj' iQoni- 
Ing.. ■ [ .l'>r'-f:-^ '_'■.' 

I am fu^ly persuaded that In 
. spite .^of our selfish interest. 
Dr. Jordan could render, as a 
member oi the Board of Bish- 
ops, a greater servloe to tbe 
church, if

Thru t^e knowledge of yesterday, thru the known gladness and 
sorrow,^ yon go ahead' with: hope and ambition — intoi the unknown 
of tomo^Tow.

When I come back: 

A scar from nazi shrapnel 'Cross my brow:

Stepping erect, disdaining e'en to limp ' : 

While marching through the streets of my home towa

Thrill me in spite of scorn of my dark i&fk 
That is the only blot on our ffair South 
When I come-back.

Let me not find ■ ~ 

A charred, black ruin ^iiere our home-nest stood : 

Averted faces wondering h^w to break 

The awful news that in the path of hate 

Our home stood when a mob with flaming torch 

Raged through the "black l|>elt" Mhile I fought afar! 

Better death here

Angelus service is two-fold in j)urpose: First, it 
is a fitting tribute to the departed; second, a 
source of consolation for those who remain. In 
order to distinguish this new and finer type of 
service from the average funerafl, we speak of it 



as a Memorial! Service. Yet thi^ newer and finer 
type of scrvic^ costs no more.

by the genial Ralph Bcrton at Stein^ay Hall in New 
York each Fridayfcvc? The same goes for the unique 
session carried on by our own Allen Drew! at the 
"HEAT WAVEK of uptown Harlem fame. Yet 
with all this "mining" so unpleasant in the eyes of 
my facist squares not a mathine-gujn has turned up 
injan instrument case. Wonder what such people 
would say who saw the white Joe Sullivan with his 
arm across the shoulders of sepia iCootie Williams 
in a recent Jam Session I saw back least.

DON'T think many^ persons knjow that Maurice 
Rocco the brown genius of pianoj-cavorting while 
playing the swank N. Y. Reuban-Blleu also appeared 
on the Saturday four hour local N. Y. local pro- 
gram, "GLOOM^DODGERS." You should hear 
Rocco's Boogie Woogie interpretati(^n of Ellington's 
♦'TAKE THE 'A' TRAIN". Really so much in the 
groove it wears a separate path. | 

Wonder if many theatre goers stop to wonder 
what has become of beauteous Tanya Rheuhama, that 
amazing combination of interpretive dancing and con- 
tortions? Of Chicago fame, she was taking the East 
by storm when last known to be dancing. Although 
20th Century has been paying MGM $7,000 a week 
for Lena Home's talents, Lena only gets the small 
sum of $450 a week for all of that terrific work . . .! 

Do many people realize that the sheer collabora- 
tioH of Red Skelton and the sepia supporting cast 
REALLY DOOD IT in the latest film. It's becom- 
ing widely known that Ralph Cooper's talents from 
the stage-viewpoint have petered out! and he now de- 
votes his time to a Pabst Blue-Ribbon sponsored pro- 
gram of an evening "Swing Session" six days a week 
with a "guest-show on Tuesday. I witnessed one of 
his recent ones with Ella Fitzgerald and the 4 Keys 
and can truly say the guest show is worthy of its 
studio, as well as its radio following. Frank Dixon, 
the sensational N. Y. U. track flash, now a Private 
in Uncle Sam's forces, was present and used his hands 
like unto his feet 6n the cinders in applauding the 
show. r 


, , YOU wouldn't believe that a slight, wiry, young- 
ster, just out of college could in tlie short space of 
time, less than two years to be exact, play as accom- 
panist to the very i danceable Paul Draper, do his 
own concerts, arrange for Ben Carter and presently 
arranging for Harry James, currently appearing round 
about New York, would you? | 

Well this unsung sepia genius is Calvin Jackson, 
formerly of N. Y. U. Also reports arc out that Paul- 
ine Busth has the ear-marks of a new if not a great 

star. She sings equally well in high or low and with I ' 

the ease of one talking. That new B^hel Water's show L T!'* important thing in life is 
everyone's asking me the^namc of is 'XAFF TIME'' Ssa'pmudfSt^^'p^Sveran^ 
which opened in San Francisco this past week, if it's'^o attain it.-rGoetiie.

would have been that pajamas 
instigated criminal personalities

Please Mr. Cayton even if your

fortunate in wit or circumstances 
as yours please remember there 
are a few persons who know the

a spectacular dtrike, in which 
many thousands elevator oper-

the wages of the workers have 
been more than doubled over a 
period of a few years. 

In every case the success of 
the organization has been due at

In spite of Mr. Bi adley'a in- 
tensive efforts in beialf of the 
organized building service em- 
ployees in Southern California, 
he has found time for important 
allied activities. Believing that 
the split in organized labor's 
ranks benefits only the employ- 
ers and hampers Labor's efforts 
to support ''win-the-jwar" poli- 
cies, Mr, Bradley is I active on 
the Unity for Victory Committee 
which is attempting ^o mobolize

Americans repaying its debt to 
Africa on the:installment plan. In 
a very real ^nse, Liberia is the 
daughter republic of America and 
represents a sort of down pay- 
ment to the people of Africa on 
the tremendpus debt America 
owes the sorts and daughters of 
this great Continent. Against 
their will, i| is true — ^Africans 
gave the la^or which helped 
America conquer Its fields, for- 
ests and mines. With this help 
America became a great country. 
Her wealth, power and democra- 
tic ideals are a potential force for 
good throu'gholut the world. Amer- 
ica can do mijich to help Liberia 
fulfill her defttiny as a new na- 
tion in Africai, a democratic na- 
tion. \ 

The war hais brought America 
and Liberia (;loser together. Li- 
beria has given the United Na- 
tions, through America, vital air 
bases. These bases had a bearing 
on the strategy of the North Af- 
rican campai^. They helped in-, 
sure the destruction of the fascist 
armies under: Rommel. Liberia 
has also giveij vital raw materi- 
als, f 

President Barclay, at a 'press 
conference in Philadelphia on 
June 3rd, pointed out that the 
Firestone plantations alone pro- 
duced 19,000,0^ pounds of rub- 
ber in 1942. Iji these and other 
ways Liberia shas given freely 
and generOuslIf to the cause of 
world freedom^ to the security of 
the United Nations of which she 
Is part, to the -security of Amer- 
ica. In these, Liberia has made 
a substantial 9own-payment on 
Its future security and prosperity.

only be sincere cooperatiqi 
friendship and |tnutual aid 
will help accelerate dej{(!i^|)ment 
of the democratic„j!*5n economic 
potentiallties.84^beria. There is 
IncreaaJUiC^vid^nce that the nec- 
essities of war, will hasten the 
development of these new rela- 
tions in such a -way that Liberia 
may exercise a helpful influence 
on the llberatl4n of Africa from 
the thralldom o;| the colonial sys- 
tem. ; 

Mayor LaGuftrdia, at a testi- 
monial dinner i(n honor of Presi- 
dent Barclay aijld President-elect 
Tubman at the! Hotel Roosevelt 
in New York CJty June 11, went 
right to the heart of some of the 
issues. j 

La Guardia akid: ". . . Liberia 
represents the ^opportunity and 
hope for someilhlng real. The 
hope that a sniall country can 
protect itself frqm the encroach- 
ment of outsid^ greed and ex- 
ploitation . . . 't'his will require 
great statesmai|ship and great 
courage. ... It is the difficult 
task of the. Libe^an government 
to see to it that the God -given 
resources of Liberia shall be en- 
joyed by the people of Liberia 
and not by aome foreign corpora- 
tions . . . and I have in mind 
some American corporations ... 
Liberia may yet be the inspira- 
tion of millions of people in that lif t£e 1942 rate of 8ho|s l^iiying

all the people— even as we must 
here In America — if wel are not to 
make a mockery of the demo- 
cratic Ideals for which we fight 
in this great war. { 

Mr. Tubman, presideiif-elect, in 
his informal remarks at the din- 
ner, pointed out thsjt Liberia 
cannot fullfill its destjny alone. 
Mr. Tubman emphasized (1) that 
Ethiopia is a living rekninder of 
the blindness and selfishness of 
the other nations whiclji prevent- 
ed them from seeing inj 1935 that 
no nation is secure as l(>ne as the 
liberty of one nation ijs m dan- 

The African fable Mr, Tubman 
told <o illustrate this po|ir^t shows 
him ^o be a staunch adherent of 
collective s*curit>-: (2) thatuntil 
a few years ago the leaders and 
government had to spend prac- 
tically all of their tinjie trying 
to keep predatofj' nations and 
greedy corporations frinm gob- 
bling up their small (ind poor 
country — so much so that there 
was little time for anything else; 
(3) that despite this c^)ncentra- 
tiort on keeping the independence 
of the country, the government 
haslbeen able to step up integra- 
tion' of the indigenous population 
in the political and eooniomic life 
of the republic. Mr. "Tul^man in- 
ferred that Liberia had made 
mori progress in this respect than 
America has made in iintegrating 
the Negro. I 

A friend remarked after the 
dinner that "while 'Liberia is 
legally free, she is still very 
much a colony of the American 
missionarj' meAtality." There is 
hope that the war will break 
both spiritually and political Ex- 
ploitation, j. I

Is Short 

OAKLAND, Calif., June 15.— 
General Engineering shipyard 
employs thousands of workers 
but has only 41 Negroes on the 
payroll, and these in laboring 
and janitorial jobs, with the ex- 
ception of one electrician trainee. 

This lopsided ratio was re- 
vealed by A. G. Gaffney, person- 
nel manager of the plant, in an 
interview with church, union and 
civic leaders investigating the 
absence of Negroes in welding 
and other skilled trades at the 
Alameda, Calif., yard. 

Yet Gaffney declared he is Op- 
posed to racial prejudice and 
professed .himself in ignorance of 
any anti-Negro practices in em- 
ployment procedure. "If I find 
discrimination in hiring our em- 
ployes I shall immediately re- 
move the cause!" he said. 

Gaffney was questioned for 
clues to the situation, princnpally 
by C. L. Dellums, president of 
the Oakland local of the A. F. of 
L Brotherhood of Sleeping Car 
Porters. Dellums emphasized the 
contrast between the thousands 
of Negroes- employed by other 
San Francisco bay shipyards and 
the few hired at General Engin- 

"Since all the shipyards In this 
area started a non-discrimina- 
tory hiring policy at approxi- 
mately the wme time and since 
the other yards employ thousands 
of Negroes, why is it that General 
Engineering lias only a few 
dozen?" asked Dellums; 

Gaffney said he did not know 
the reason but was endeavoring 
to find if any discriminatory 
hiring orders had been given to 
the unions by General Engineer- 
ing department heads. He said 
there was no company policy as 
to race and that the company 
bars no worker for lack of skill, 
because conditions have com- 
pelled the company to develop 
Its own skilled workers. 

Dellums suggested that the 
ctmipany review all rejections, a 
procedure that gave great suc- 
cess at Lockheed-Vega aircraft 
plant »nd Gaffney promised to 
make a careful study of future 
Negro applications. According to 
Gaffney a "slack" period exists 
at General Engineering now, but 
the filling of a new order start- 
ing in July will make necessary 
a doublijtig of personnel. Thus the 
company sees clearly the need for 
a non-discriminatory poUey, he 

Meanwhile tiie committee In- 
terviewing Gaffney planned to 
cmifer with local unions and find 
out whether the unions have been 
•informed" that Negroes would 
not be accepted at General En-

Last (week we spoke of the 
suggestion program outlined by 
the Po^master General. While 
this is a constructive step in the 
right direction to make it more 
effectiv^ one thing should be 
done fi^t of all. Employes who 
have a f thorough knowledge of 
their duties and possess a certain 
amoiwitl of executive ability 
should ^ placed at the head of 
various departments. 

A U^ taddant happened 
while I was amplorad at the 
Tenninol ilnnax that will U-

of tha^ two eoH Tsyor a an

terlodc i tham. 

At th^ extreme end of each 
conveyof there are jaclcs which 
have tefision rolls and weights 
to keep the slack out of the belts. 
Soon after the Temrir»al opened 
the belts stretched to a point 
where it becanw necessary to 
cut a length out. The employe 
placed i^ charge of this job had 
had litt}e or no experience in 
cutting f belt of this size. The 
result was the belt was cut un- 
even and ran to the ^de all the 
time. Tb|ls belt was a source of 
worry to the mechanics in try- 
ing to n^ke it run straight.

Cap!.' Hugh Mulxac is Hic first and 
only member of his race to command 
a ship of the U. S. Merchant Marine 

Seagoing blood has never beoi 
limited to the white race, but it 
took a global war to put a Negro 
io-charge of a 'big American mer- 
chant vessel. 

His name is Hugh N. Mulzac; 
his title, master of the 10,500-ton 
Liberty ship Booker T. Washing- 
ton. Launched in California last 
fall, the Booker T. has since seen 
action aplentyr carrying supplies 
for the Allies. She has crossed 
and recrossed the Atlantic, visit- 
ed North Africa, survived gales, 
ice, tropic heat ! enemy dive 

Also, she has Isbattered the 
theory that a man^s worth some- 
how depends on the color of his 
skin. Month after ijnonth without 
cargo loaa, or trouble among his 
predominantly white crew, has 
proved the 57-year|old skipper of 
the Booker T. a Highly capable 
mariner, a respected leader. 

Yet this proof waited 22 years 
for realization: Hu^h Mulzac got 
his master's ticket! back in 1920. 
Then, t>ecause of h\n race, he had 
to be content witli lesser posts: 
steward, deck han4, purser, cook. 

Until his chance came, he held 
his peace — and studied. To cor- 
respondence courses in naviga- 
tion and radio operation he cred-

et that organizatiofi' 
conunittee, who ai- 



its much of his readiness for 
command of the Booker T. 

Today his crew of 42 (repre- 
senting 17 rrationaUties) has the 
unusual change to attend regu- 
lar shipt>oard classjes in naviga- 
tion, engineering, mathematics. 
It also puts out a daily one-page 
newspaper. The General Alarm, 
holds weekly discussion groups. 

To Capt. Mulzac his men's wel- 
fare is all-importaht. He gives 
them what he rarely got from 
others: genuine friendship. 

He was bom on the small Brit- 
ish West Indian island of St 
Vincent left home at 21 aboard 
a Norwe^n bark.. Soon he 
learned what it meant to be 
black: in North Carolina, a white 
man's diurch refused to let him 
in. , ^ 

"I hated America then," he 
says. "It was hard for the grand- 
son of a minister to l>e barred 
from the church of his own God." 

But through the years, he de- 
velaped an inner strength. Now 
he hates no man, accepts life as 
it comes from day to day. 

Ashore, Capt. Mulzac lives with 
his wife and five children in a 
Brooklyn, N. Y., apartment. Once 
a crack cricket player, he now 
roots hard for the Dodgers. 

An American citizen since 1918, 
he hopes to retire after the war. 
But first? "I've got a job to do," 
he says quietly, with an accent 
that is still faintly British.

Department orders regarding the 
conduct of sailors at the BeUe

and that an investigation pt

The release by the Federal 
Government of buildina^ mater- 
ial for the construction m houses 
for workers in defense areas was 
also urged. 

IJinally the NAACP charged 
that the failure of the War Man- 
power Commission to prohibit 
recruitment of workers else- 
where before all available local 
labor had beeir utilized resulted 
in an enormous and increasing 
strain on housing facilities in 
Detroit and led to, in part, the 
creation of conditions culmina- 
ting in rioting. 

The NAACP told the President 
that it was gratified by the' re- 
port that the Department of Jus- 
tice has summoned all United 
States attorneys to meet in Phil- 
adelphia this week to discuss 
the obligation and duty of each 
of them to preserve civil rights 
of American citizens. The NAA 
CP suggested that the federal 
government through the Depart- 
ment of Justice, weed out from 
federal, city and state police 
forces all members of the Ku 
Klux Klan, the Nazi Bund and 
the Black Legion or any other 
anti-minority and anti-Ameri- 
can organization. 

Vigorous support of FEPC was 
asked of the President and 
greater use of the radio, press 
and moving picture by the OWI 
ii. the dissimination of inform- 
ation that will create a 
understanding between whites 
and Negroes. 

The NAACP expressed amaze- 
ment at the silence of the Presi- 
dent who as far as printed stoi^ 
ies reveal did not mention the 
rioi during his pregs conference 
this week. The mokt charitable 
explanation of the President's 
behavior, - the NAACP said, is 
that he was waiting Until he

The full answer to Mayor Jef-

in a "white paper," the NAACP 
declared are to be found in the 
more than 100 action pictures it 
has on file that were taken by 
newsmen during pie- height of 
the riot. Among these_pictures of 
whites maiming helpless and 
hopelessly outnumbered Negroes 
is the now famous shot of a

and mounted police and suppos-

Approximately 2500 persons 
were in attendance at the com- 
munity night enterUinment. A 
splendid band concert by the 
military musical organization 
of the 23rd Aviation Squadron, 
Minter Field, started off the af- 
fair. In addition, eight num- 
bers |Were rendered by some of 
our talented junior hostesses. 

After the program the club 
was thronged with folks, and 
tasty refreshments were served. 
It is planned to have community 
nights once every three weeks 
during the summer season. 

dens of our extended rationing 
program have been so heavy that 
this Board finds itself unable to 
perform its tasks without the 
voluntary help of others of our 
patriotic citizens who may be 
in a position to give that help 
at the time it is so direly needed. 
We have appealed to you time 
and again to come forward and 
give that help in order that you, 
your neighbors and friends, may 
receive a more efficient and a 
more facile service. These ap- 
peals have been largely in vain 
and as a consequence the mem- 
bers of this Board have found 
themselves working long and ar- 
duous nights administering to 
you a program for which you as 
citizens are equally responsible. Splendid progress is being

Workers School 
liegins Summer 
Term July 19th 

"Hot weather can not stop us 
from learning how to fight the 
Axis", declares a statement of 
the Los Angeles Workers School 
in announcing its Summer Term 
which starts July 19th. 

"The war does not stop because 
of hot weather; our iighters con- 
tinue to defy the Axis fcordes on 
the battlefields; neither can peo- 
ple who want to learn how more 
effectively to fight for victory, 
be stopped by the weatherman", 
the statement points out. 

The school's Summer curricu- 
lum offers a r i c h selection of 
courses helping to equip people 
with the necessary knowledge 
and skill in the historic battle 
for freedom. There are courses 
in American History; economics 
and problems in the war. 

A course of special Interest Is: 
Problems of American Democ- 
racy. This is a lecture course 
to be taught by eminent authori- 
ties—Carey McWilliams, John 
Howard Lawson and Albert 
Maltz. This course will start 
August 6th. Due to limited space 
in the school's class rooms, this 
course will be given in the Uni- 
tarian Church, 2936 W. 8th St. 
(East of Vermont.) 

Registration is open now. Stu- 
dents can register at the offices 
of the school, 212 W. 3rd St., 
every day between 1 and 7:30 
p. m. Tuition for each course is 
S3.00. The school has issued a

great address was apparent and 
l^bvious at all times— "Unified 
Minority Movement to Secure the

I as Guaranteed by Constitutional 
'Amendments and Executive De-

lighted by the following quota- 

This is a new age and the 
old order must give way to tha

merely a " T^egro orgariizatio#\-^ 
but rather, 'A movement to pro** |

the just and righteous causes of 
all oppressed 'feinority groups"' 
". . . We have seen many 
changes affecting the Negro in 
the past 20 years. Whites and 
Negroes can and do work side- 
by-side. Labor unions havp 
dropped the 'Jim Crowi clause* 
from their constitution^. Civil 
Service more fully recognizes the 
skill, ability and capacity of the 
Negro— yet — there is mn<?i for us 
as a people to do to kieep the 
doors of equal opportunities

Mr. Lee Diixon of Detimt ^ch-

geles to spend a twelve-day va- 
cation with his brother and 
nieces who live at 1449 West 36th 

According to Mr. Dixon, who 
was in Detroit during the recent 
! race riot, trouble began at Belle 
Isle, a beach resort A rumor cir- 
culated that a colored woman 

while ^^alking across a bridge 
with her child, bumped into a 
sailor and his female compan- 
ion. The sailor, it was rumored, 
■spoke sharply to the colored wo- 
man, words ensued, the colored 
woman was struck by the sailor 
; in a fit of anger, the child was 
I thrown off the bridge. 
', This news traveled up Hasting 
i street and fighting soon brokf^ 
iout in a beer tavern and contin- 
! ued to spread. Every window 
t and store front on Hasteihg 
j Street for thirty blocks was 
broken «ip by Negroes. 

During the rioting, a colored 
wolmaii was taken off of the 
street (tar and beaten to death by 

A twelve man committee was 
appointed by the Mayor of De- 
troit made up of six Negroes and 
six whites, to investigate cause 
of rioting. According to a re- 
port submitted by the committee, 
the commimity was recognized 
and condemned as a tinder-box 
due to congested conditions 
breeding Negro ghettoes and 
lack of recreational facilities. 

The police commissioner of 
Detroit has offered, after pres- 
sure of the twelve man commit - 
i tee, to enlarge the police force 
by employing 200, instead of 50 
colored officers now on the force. 
-Almost all troops have been 
I withdrawn and peace and order 
apparently reign. The CIO de- 
i manded a full investigation by 
I the Grand Jury of the Ku Kux 
;Klan. The investigation is to be 
. made.

The visitors, proprietors of the

tailoring establishment in Des

Angeles shortly, after their enjoy- 
able visit here. 

By desiring what is perfectly 
good ... we are part of the power

spects to those 



are the rite by which civilized man pays his final 
who pass into another realm. . . . Everyone wants 
his departed loved one the best, the most bautiFul final tribute which 
dividual circumstances will allow. 

A lovely cwkti, flowers, music, a distinctive chapel, anobtrusive 
attention to every detail — ^these are the things which make this great rite 
into the kind of tribute which we all want for our loved one. 

However, it is not always within the power of those who pay this 
tribute to pay the price for the type of funeral which is desired. . . . The 
matter of cost enters into the picture. 

Yet, at the People's Funeral Home, where the Golden Rule is the 
guiding principle, cost determines only certain elements of a funeNri serv- 
ice'. Regardless of circumstances, no one need fail to gire unto the da- 
parted bvcd ope the very best, because here, price is adjusted to indi4 
vidual circumstances— and quality is never sacrificed — regardless! 

Those nbt acquainted with this friendly institution may well ask 
how this can bfc. Those whom we have served could tell better than we. 
They could tell; of the warm, human understanding with which their needs 
and desires are met. They could tell of our lovely Ivory Chapel with its 
hidden organ, jand of the private rooms for the family . . . and they 
could tell that from beginning to end, from the time this institution is; 
given the case,! to* the cemetery service, every detail receives scrupulous 
attention. | 

For. at "^c People's Funeral Home the owners, themsdyes mo^ 
tielans of long experience, personally handle every important part of 
thek work. There Is no shortage of help here! 

IS aiwa 

Centralf| located in the very heart of the community where there 

lys plenty of parkino space, this institution can and does offer to 
every patrdn, regardless or purse, the best. 

With us[ sorrow is sacred; its penetration into the hearts of these 
who have suffered a loss is not a sigiial for profit making, but rather an 
opportunity to serve. 

Your problems are ours. Bring them to ws, day or night, with the 
assurance that |ant}arrangement caiii be worked out to suit every purse, 
every need »r\6^ every desire.

Mrs. Brownrigg has had phe- 
nomenal success in revivals 
throughout the country. She has 
arrived h«e in Los Angeles to 
assist the churchmen of this 
city in waging war against sin, 

Evangelist BroT^nrlgg has had 
special training In her field. She 
has studied in some of our fore- 
m6st universities in the east 
and is fully prepared, intellec- 
tually and spiritually. 

The Rev. Mrs. Brownrigg is 
the conference evangelist of the 
Philadelphia • Baltimore confer- 
ence of the A. M. E. Zion Church, 
presided over by Bishop Alleyne. 

When we say that Mrs. Brown- 
rlgg is one of the outstanding 
spiritual d y n a n» o s that was 
produced in the 20th century, 
we are indeed putting it very 
mildly. In days as these when 
men and women are jittery and 
confused, we realize that there 
is a great necessity for spiritual 
food in which the citizenry of 
Los Angeles and others as well 
stand In need. We challenge all 
to spiritual preparation and 

TTierefore, we extend an invi- 
tation to all to attend this great 
revival and hear this great gos- 
pel preacher. She will preach 
from this subject Sunday night, 
"Keep the Fire Burning."

However, the Canaanites, espe-

That Randolph's confab has chcsen to 
select Los Angeles as i try-out spot for 
its "technique of nonviolent goodwill di- 
rect action" is a challenge which this 
citv must answer. 

Whatever the superficial war support 
mouthed by Randolph, his program and 
policies boil down to this treasonable 
bed-rock: "This is a white man's war 
and it is no damn good." 

That sentence is quoted proudly by a 
recent Randolph pamphlet. The state- 
ment is attril?uted by the pamphlet to a 

only if a specific list o:^ grievances ^are 
immediately met. Failing this, we may 
safely keep hands off the war, and let 
the white folks fight it out -j * ;^|i^ 

Then international fascism does Siot 
aim at the enslavement of subject peo- 
ples and there is nothing to fear from 
Axis victory. 

Or else a victorious Axis would' en- 
slave all America but leave Negroes in 

But fascism in theory and practice is ' 
the HIGHEST FORM of Jim-Crow- 
ism. It is Jim-Crowism unrestricted to 
Dixie, let loose over the face of the 
whole earth. 

Who, then, has the most to lose from 
an Axis victory? Negroes or, say, the 
National Association of Manufacturers? 

Can there be any "conditional" sup- 
port of this war for survival by Negroes 
when its loss would mean our immediate 
enslavement along with every other pro- 
gressive force in the nation? 

Clearly, the slogan of a "white man's 
war" is criminally false. Worse. It is

Randolph Marches With Dies, Ranldn 


Bv M. Moran Weslon 

Spreading Joy. 

By John Fowler 


Here is the historical moment in 
J which the March on Washington move- 
ment chooses to meet: 

The United Nationsi are poised for 
the knock-out invasion of Europe. In 
desperate efforts to sabotage the home- 
front and prevent this Vast military op- 
eration, the shock troops of Hitler's 
whole American Fifth Column fling 
themselves recklessly against the ad- 
ministration of Franklin Roosevelt, or- 
ganized labor and national minorities. 

Dominated by the same sort of de- 
featists who nearly destroyed Lincoln, 
the list Congress scuttled the price roll- 
back program, destroyed the progres- 
sive Office of War Information (on the 
excuse that it printed. a pamphlet, NE- 
GROES IN THE WAR), passed the 
sinbter Smith-Connally; anti-strike bill, 
over the President's' ve|o, and engaged 
in an orgy of red-baititog, Negro-bait- 
ing, and jew-baiting. 

Rioting against minority groups has 
broken oyt in several war production 
centers, with conscious Fifth Column 
agitation apparent in eVery case. 

Cheered on by the Niational Associa- 
tion, of Manufacturers,! Martin Dies, 
John Rankin, Eugene Cox, John L.^ 
L<nyis, Herbert Hoover, Westbrook 
Pegler and mob have launched ah all- 
out offensive against President Roose- 
velt and his war policies. 

At such a moment, A. Philip Ran- 
dolph's convention surveys the Ameri- 
can scene and places sole responsibility 
for race rioting upon,-4the Fifth Col- 
umn? The Klan? The|| Hearst press? 
The Congressional saboteurs? Martin 
Diefe? why, HECK no! fhe single agent 
in America worthy of the March On 
Washington's condemnation is President 
Franklin Roosevelt!

tells Negro workers in CALship, Con-

Mrs. Thompson, of West 95t^ Street for 
staying, iiowever, in lils own liome, wideh h4

la Hollywood. 

Mr. Ingram came to Hollywood^ 
to consult with Eugene O'Neill, 
playwright, concerning the part 
he is to take in Mr O'Neill's play, 
Emperor Jones, which will open 
In Cambridge, Mass., Aug. 9. He 
plans to leave for San Francisco 
tomorrow. From there he will go 
to New 'York City. 

Mr. Ingram will be remem- 
ered chiefly for his characteri- 
ation of The Lord in Green Pas- 
tures, the film based upon the 
play by Marc Connolly. The sim- 
ple dignity and understanding 
with which he portrayed the lov- 
ing yet just Creator of erring hu- 
manity in that picture, ranked 
him high among the world's 
great actors and won for him a 
place of undying affection

What are we doing individually

is taking care of vfartory over the

most impossible to hope that 
oar persons will be delegated 
such powers. But as a dream of 
its potentialities we can imag-

did come about. 

I vefiture that within ten years 
the minorities would not suffer as 
they are now suffering. Pressure,

always be a dream of this real, 
working, intelligent plan but it 
is far from realization. But it 
does not hurt one to dream and 
realize iU possibilities. 

There is a chance for those 
who want to do everything pos- 
sible, to bring about this dream. 
Perhaps I should say that there 
are those who will do everything 
because there are lots of us who 
want to do everything but only 
a few of us who will do every- 
thing. In Los Angeles we have 
such organizations as the N. A. 
A. C. P. and the Unity Council 
and several other organizations 
which are typical of organiza- 
tions of this type throughout the 
country and that are composed 
of individuals who are determ- 
ined to carry on the fight that 
could be won if each and every 
one would pledge to do and then 
DO everything he- can to help 

Meakness excludes revenge, ir- 
ritability, morbid sensitiveness, 
but not self-defense, or a quiet 
and steady maintenance of right.

This newBy' released throuirh Aaaodated Prfess, lai 
other news serriceii Saturday, gave this deportmeat: a 
tingle of inride, of satisf action. ,* , ^ , 

And here's the reason: ' i^-:»« '■^-' ■/<■ .;^«-;- ^.^ - ■'■>' 
Loois, the soldier, and L6'a&^ &e hea vy wc%h t mler 
(Of the worid's Wxeiis, are symbols. 

iit jv; In bo^dng, he is a ^rmb<^ of strength, skill, sports- 
iWaship. He rnles the division that has probably more of 
a hold on the world public's fancy than any other field in 

A^ a soldier, a dark-skinned soldier, if yoa please — 
and ihere is a difference, believe us— Joe Louis is a symbol 
qf coorage, heart, tact, everything that goes to make up a 
good soldier — plus devotion to a country, hk coontiy, that 
deni^ him the right, in violation of the Constitution, to 
more, to think, to act freely in all phases of its national 

A symbol never: fails. 

Louis, the prize fighter never failed boxing fans. He 
may not have fought his fight at times, his opponents may 
have made him look bad at times, but he always gave of 
his best. 

Louis, the soldier, will never fail his country. Wher- 
ever be is needed, that's where he wants to go. 

That's the picture. 

The War Department, which previously had refused 
to OK a prqposed title fight between Louis and Corporal 
Billy Conn, is to be commended on this new move. 

American morale is due to hit new heights when 
Xiouis and his entourage moves from camp to camp — in 
I Europe, in Alaska, in Africa, in Asia, in the Pacific, wher- 
ever it may be. 

Imagine what his appearance is going to do for the 
dark-skinned Americans ! It's going to give them an aw- | 
fully big lift r I 

Sergeant Louis, the boxer and tutor of physical condi- : 
tioning, will be more of an aid to the United Nations' war I 
effort in such a role than he would astride a steed, or ! 
shouldering an instrument of death. 

The column again commends the War Department, '■ 
for seeing Louis as a symbol, and making use of the fact in i 
a way to reflect its integrity and foresight, and credit upos ', 
the person of Louis, the prizefighter, and Louis, the soldier. 

Louis told newsmen that details for the tour had not 
been worked out, that he wanted to take Sgt. George

"Where no counsel is, the peo- 
ple fall: but in the multitude of 
counsellors there is safety." Pro- 
verbs 11:14. 

So often a union organiser is 
confronted with the question, 
"Why do you need to join a 
union when you work for the 
government?" It is very exas- 
perating to have to answer this 
question so often. If the" inter- 
rogator would pnly think it 
would not be necessary to ask 
this thoughtless question. Since 
thie creation of. mankind it hsis 
always been found beneficial for 
man to unite in an effort to solve 
his problems. This great nation 
of which we are a part was 
founded through the efforts of 
the original union of thirteen 
states. The Union Jack symbol- 
izes unity among the naval 

The aim of industrial unions is 
to unite all labor in an effort to 
obtain lull recognition of col- 
lective bargaining In obtaining 
fair wages and better working 
conditions. We believe that pro- 
motions should t>e based upon 
seniority, merit, and ability. Un- 
fortunately these factors are not 
always given consideration in 
government service. Too often 
officials with personal preju- 
dices victimize employees. In 
cases like these it is necessary 
for unions to take unified action. 

You may paint a leopard any 
color you want but he is still a 
dangerous animal. You may 
whitewash a mule but he will 
still remain a mule. There are 
certain officials who have been 
a thorn in the side of employees 
in the past. There is a war on 
and a serious shortage of man- 
power. There is a reluctancy to 
discharge or discipline an em- 
ployee on the slightest provoca- 
tion at this time. Too great a 
turn over at this time might be 
questioned in Washington, "rtie 
old timers know that the temps 
and subs are having a Roman 
holiday. Be not deceived. The war 
will be over someday and so will 
present conditions. Those who 
are dripping honey from their 
lips now will show those hidden 

"The rich man's wealth is his 
strong city: the destruction of 
the poor is their poverty." Pro- 
verbs 10:15. Now is the time for 
all unions to build and strength- 
en their organizations. We must 
build and fortify against the 
time when we will need com- 
plete unity to hold the gains 
made through the efforts of or- 
ganized labor. It has been a 
ceaseless fight to obtain the 
gains made thus far. Many men 
have made great sacrifices and 
others will have to continue if 
we are to progress. 

We are watching with a great 
deal of interest the shifting of 
the guard force at the Terminal 
Annex. We hear that someone 
has hollered foul. It will be in- 
teresting to see what will be the 
outcome of the lieutenant posi- 
tion. Glad to hear that our good 
friend Culpepper has landed the 
stockroom spot. It's some conso- 

Custodial employees take a 
I fool's advice and join some or-

I ladies, too.

Methotds and vsys are many 
to a broken heart when great 
tides of emotion and longing are 
sweeping in from the shweless 
s^as <A Infinite- promise. Al- 
though success, may be delayed, 
final attainment of our secret de- 
sires offer a fijultful reward. 

TOO often we merely day-dreSm 
when we would climb higher. 
Wistful wishing fails because of 
a lack of thrilling joy in per- 
formance. But a wish springing 
froih a heart full of longing and 
joyful expectancy has in itself 
the power of survival and thus 
carries the promise of fulfill- 
ment. Such a wish is almost a 
prayer . . . reaching out into 
the magic realm of possibility 
and faith.

(deep concern throughout the

It described the Detroit out-

and dusty street scene the 
true techaique of every bi- 
got rioter and lyncher is 
expressed. Here the cam- 
era unmasks in one split 
second the. ugly face of 
mob intolrance. This is the 
story of air race persecu- 
tions. This IS the spirit of 
all race riots. This is the 
technique since time began 
of Ivnch law and the mob. 

"it is to hound the help-

"There is something 
cancerous about such phe-

Citizens, they.rpust suggest 
the presence of an evil 
growth which may, unless 
excised in time, destroy 
our whole American dem- 
ocracy. That growth is the 
spirit of intolerance setting 
race against race, pitting 
violence against violence, 
and denying evcrv funda-

freedom and every basic 
right of man.

Here is a splendid reaction oi 
liberal America to tlie rioting 
which has disgraced our nation 
in the last few weeks. 

However, there is one weak- 
ness in the editorial which must 
be pointed out. It fails to recog- 
nize the Impact of rioting now 
upon onr war effort. It fails to 
indicate that those who provoke 
riots today are conscious "Fifth 
columnisjs deliberately aiming 
at the defeat of America by the 

Axis. ,. , 

The "age-old Intolerance" of 
races and minorities does not 
and never did exist in a vacuum. 
This "age-old intolerance" has 
always served concrete political 
and economic ends. In all times 
the forced ignorance and preju- 
dice of the masses has been 
utilized, stimulated and exploit- 
ed by the enemies of progress 
and the defenders of the status 

quo. • ' ' .

itself before slavery. Superstition 
and class hate were encouraged

We must not forget that today 
there is less prejudice, fewer

DEUBERATELT exploited by 
the American Fifth Column to 
disrupt the growing Negro- 
white unity in the natien and 
to tie up wor production in all 
vitol defense areas. 
To' "forget" or neglect this as- 
pect of the current race rioting 
is to miss the entire significance 
of these events. Further, if we 
do not understand the real na- 
ture of those elements actively 
pushing race friction, we are un- 
able to battle against them ef- 
fectively. We are left with empty 
preachments against "a?e-old 
intolerance" rather than militant 
action against live, virulent 
Fifth Column acents working 
within the Ku Kux Klan, the 
Hearst press, the Martin Dies 
Dies Committee, and the whole 
grimy lot of Congressional con- 
spirators who are attempting to 
scuttle the nation's war pro- 

Here is an example of Fifth 
Column operation in Los An- 

For months the Hearst preu 
has aggressively whipped up 
an atmeephere ef racial strife. 
It hos carefully loid an ideo- 
logical, base for rioting and :; 
friction. On racial grounds, it 
has attacked Japanese Ameri- 
cans, Chinese. Negroes and 
Mexicans. During the root 
suit disturbances it demon- 
strated depths of virulenot 
that shocked our wboto com- 

This campaign came home vi- 
ciously to Mr. B. B. Roberts, who 
has lived for three years, at 2200 
West 30th street when his white 
neighbors sought this week to 
throw him out of his house. 

Another Negro had moved into 
the block. ' 

Was the action of these neigh- 
bers automatic? 

No. Large realty firms in Los 
Angeles, mobilized around giant 
Building and Loan Associations, 
maintain a constant vigil in 
support of property race restric- 
tions. These firms derive huge 
orofits from overcharging rentals 
in Negro ghetto ' communities. 
They are the close financial al- 
lies of the hds Angeles Hearst 

They send out special agita- 
tors to stir up white communi- 
ties about an "tnvasion" of their 
streets by Negro "inferiors." They 
point to the scare riots stories of 
the Examiner and Herald. 

And so Mr. B. B. Robwts re- 
ceive* netlfieatinn from , his 
neif^tbers that he most get out 
ef hia bmas. 

Mr. Bebarts has one sen in 
the army and another in the 
ma r i n e corpa. 

Thesej^oys will hear that their 
parents may not live in the home 
which their own cold sweat has 
purdiased. ' 

Whose purpose are served? 
The war housing shortage is 
made more acute. "Two American 
soldiers are demoralized. 
HiUer is helped. 
He is helped at the appense of 
the whole American nation. !

New CentTiil NcUUig^ 

The branch store of Eastern Columbia, located at 
4429 South Ctotril Avenue, recently acquired a new 

xnanager, David R. Slonim, to direct its activities. 

Slonim, known affelctionateiy* : r'— 

to many as "Doc" Silonim, is 
originally from New jYork, but 
many in this community recog- 
nised him immediately as the 
former manager o( the; East Lo& 
Angeles Whittier Blvd. branch of 
Eastern Columbia. i 

Associated with Eastern Co- 
^lumbia since 1926, Slonim has 
been managing different branch- 
es of the firm for many years. 
For 18 years he has been in the 
furniture business and possesses | 
a keen understanding of the 
problems of people in fjiriilshing 
their home. 

. Eastern Columbia, w^ich was 
founded 51 years ago» needs no 
introduction to the people of J^os ' 
Angeles. "Doc" Slonim, speaking 
for the company, invites people 
In the community to come and 
■get acquainted. 

"Eastern Columbia wishes to 
continue serving the people of 
Los Angeles," he said, when in- 
terviewed here today.

enemy agents can think up — and 
they don't let anything keep 
them from thinking. It has been 
rumored that it was the work of 
enemy agents that resulted in 
those recent riots in Detroit, 
Pennslyvania, Texas and the 
"Zoot Suit" affair that struck 

i lightly and closer to our door 
step. Last year the numerous for- 

I est fires had some of the ear- 

cial — of the citizens of the com- 
munity that is represented and 
protected. There should be no 
doubt in minds of the people of 
the State of California and espe- 
cially of Los Angeles that the 
representation the 7th. Regi- 
ment would offer would be any- 
thing other than advantageous. 
And there is no further doubt 
that the people of this commun 

marks of sabotage and the active jty wants the 7th Regiment. And 

duty units of the State Guard 

were right on the front line with 

the soldiers of the regular armed 

forces of the nation. The writer 

can vouch for that. He was there. 

And the recent coal strike leaves 

something to think about. 

Wherever there was any con- 
tact made between the State 
Guard and the regular armed 
forces, 1^ value and work being 
done by the State Guard was 
commented upon in a very favor- 
able attitude. The Military Com-

now that a start has been made 
it would be encouraging to know 
that the people are behind the 
efforts being made. Every citizen 
of California has a voice in the 
government of the State through 
their vote. That means that they 
can write to their respective 
State Senator and their State As- 
semblyman and let them know 
that they want a unit In the 
State Guard and in that way 
those who are doing the actual 
work will know that their efforts 
are appreciated and supported. 
The Regiment is planning a pro- 
gram to be carried out in the 
near future to acquaint the peo- 
ple of the existence and activity 
of the unit. 

The mustering into the re- 
organized State Guard \k to take 
place on next Sunday, July 25, 
ld43, after which one of the first 
numbers of the aforementioned 
program will be' a field day, 
some time In August. The new 

organization is of a more liberal 
nature in the line of advance- 
ment and specialized activities 
as for example there Is very 
much encouragement for musi- 
cians, medical specialists, me- 
chanics, clerics and technicians. 
The band at the present time is 
in the advanced stage of organi- 
zation and is still in need of mu- 
sicians as they are working hard 
to be ready for the field day cele- 
bration. Corporal Frank Withers 
would like to see all of the old 
members ot the band in line 
again. Corporal Withers' reputa- 
tion is well known to the musi- 
cians therefore at this time we 
feel that we need not introduce 
him. Not only are the musicians 
urged to return but any and all 
old members of the Regiment.

Rev. H. B. Gantt has b^n re- 
turned to the First Ai ^M. E. 
Zion Church for anotlfei) year. 
His last year's work, says Bisfhop 
W. C. Brown, was most com- 

July 4th was a big day In San 
Francisco. Mrs. Nanie B. Cooper 
and her niece, Mrs. Blanche 
Cooper of Wasco, California, were 
the guests of Mr. and Mrs. Clar- 
ence Breazall of 1439 Baker 
Street, also Mr. George Bottom 
and Mrs. Thomas Allen of Oak- 
land,' California. A ^^onde^ful 
time was enjoyed by all; 

Miss Louise Boyer of San Fran- 
cisco and Mr. Raymond ^oyse of 
San Jose were secretly married in 
Reno, Nevada. They fl^w back 
by plane. The newlyv^eds are 
making their home in San Jose. 

The New West 'Coast project 
isbeing filled with our pjeople on 
Baker and Post, Sutter ahd Brod- 
erick Streets, and it is a beauti- 
ful sight when lighted at nights. 
The lawns are beautiful to see. 
This is a wonderful step for our 
people. Let us hope that this is 
but a beginning. 

Rev. and Mrs. Gaiitt left for 
Seattle last Tuesday night. They 
will sojourn there until after the 
first of August. The visit will 
combine both business and 
pleasure. ' 

All of the churches are being 
crowded every Sunday morning 
and the church-minded people 
from all parts are doing their bit 
in the way of worship. 

The Methodist Churches and 
Baptists and Pentecostals are all 
in harmony in San Francisco. All 
have been working together won- 
derfully. The sick have been at- 
tended to, the dead buried and 
the distressed in mind and body 
are being Jielped constantly. 

Our %ood friend. Jay Gould, is 
still in action and a finer fellow 
never lived in San Frincisco. He 
and Rev. H. B. Gantt are buddies 
and have been friends for more 
than 40 years. 

These two men have worked 
together in Montreal, Canada, 
and now they are working to- 
gether in San Francisco. These 
men see lots of good in each 
other. They are truly friends.

Here is the new Air-Conditioned Ice Hefri- 
gerator with a modern, beautiFul white ex- 
terior finish. It keeps Food at the low tem- 
perature necessary for preservation. But 
science has discovered that cold alone is -not 
enough. If foods are to be kept from wilting, 
shrinking and losing many important vita- 
mins, the Refrigerator must contain adequate 
moisture. And the Coolerator with its 
"washed air" atmosphere does contain that 
important moisture^! No need to cover Food 
... no drying out nor absorbing of other 
food odors, because the air-stream ]s not 
onJy humified, bttt also washed and purtlied. 
Drainage is taken care of by a simple con- 
nection. The operating cost is low. And no 
priority is needed for this scientifically im- 
proved Ice Refrigerator.

Social Nofes^ 




Last Thursday evening, July 
15, J943, the Negro Servicemen 
stationed in the Nassau County 
area, were entertained at their 
weekly dance and reception by 
Kenneth Spencer, noted baritone 
of stage, screen and radio. On 
the same bill with him was Miss 
Pearl Primus, exotic dancer and 
interpreter of African and Hai- 
tian dances. 

Both of these stars are now ap- 
pearing at downtown Cafe Soci- 
ety, New York City. Mr. Spencer 
will be remembered as one cA 
the stars in the motion picture, 
"Bataan" and "Cabin In the Sky." 
He rendered his favorite selec- 
tion, "Old Man River," and sev- 
eral other numbers. His rich deep 
mellow voice delighted the serv- 
icemen and their hostesses. 

Miss Primus danced in native 
costume to the rhythm of two 
native African Tom Tom drum- 
mers. The drummers also put on 
an act which was very difficult 
and highly interesting. 

Corporal Charles Beal accom- 
panied Mr. Spencer at the piano. 
He also rendered several delight- 
ful selections as only Corporal 
Beal can. 

Then were 640 serdcemen and 
283 hostesses present, a total of

Funerals are the rite by which civilized man pays his final re- 
spects to those who pass into another realm. . . . Everyone wants fpr 
his departed loved one the best, the most bautiFul final tribute which ih- 
dividual circumstances will allow. 

A lorely casket, flowers, music, a distinctive chapel, unobtrusive 
attention to every detail — these are the things which make this great riie 
into the kind of tribute which we all want for our loved one. | 

However, it is not always within the power oF those who pay this 
tribute to pay the price for the type of funeral which is desired. . . . T!|e 
matter of cost enters into the picture. 

Yet, at the People's ^'Funeral Home, where the Golden Rule- is the 
guiding principle, cost det^mines only certain elements of a funeral scrjr- 
ke. Regardless oif circumstances, no one need fail to give unto the da- 
parted loved one the very best, because here, price is adjusted to indi- 
vidual circumstances.— and quality is never sacrificed — regardless! ' 

Those not acquainted with this friendly institution may well akic 
how this can be. Those whom we have servecJ could tell better than wie. 
They could tell of the warm, human understanding with which their needs 
and desires are met. They could tell of our lovely Ivory Chapel with its 
hidden organ, and of the private rooms For the family . . . and thiy 
could tell that from beginning to end, from the time this institution i% 
given the case, to the cemetery service, every detail receives scrupulous 

For at The People's Funeral Home the owners, themselves mcr- 
tidan of long experience, personally handle every important part of 
thek work. There is no shortage of help here! | 

Centrally located in the very heart of the community where there 
is always plenty of parking space, this institution can and does offer :o 
every patron, regardless of purse, the best. 

With ut, soiTOW is sacred; its penetration into the he«ts of tho^ 
who have suffered a loss is not a signal for profit making, but rattier ia 
opportunity to serve. r i / ^ 

Your Problems are ours. Bring tKem to u$, day or night, with the 
assurance ih^jt an arrangement can be worked out to suit every purst 
•very need ind every desire.- ' •, . r *^ ■■ f'

concert promises unusual inter-

public and to the Brownings, be- 
cause it was on July 16, 1913 that 
the marriage of Ivan Harold 
Browning and the charming

that the Brownings will be re-

inform every CIO membci' of the[ rec- 
ord, pro-victory or pro-Hitler, of his 
congressmen, and to invite the AFLJ and 
Railroad Brotherhoods to 'cooperate in 
rallying the whole voting populati(fn is 
not a partisan move. 

Numerous 'Republicans support! the 
President's war program, just as numer- 
ous (poll tax) Democrats have fought 
that program. j . | 

Murray's propoialis a praiseworthy 
action in support of the war until un- 
conditional surrender, just as is the for- 
mation among congressmen of the 
"Fighting Forty" (now really 52) mem- 
bers of Congress, who. regardless of 
party have banded together to fight for 
the President's war program against the 
defeatists and sabotuers. 

While some Republican congressmen 
are among the ''Fighting Forty," it is 
natural that most of them are from the 
President's own party, since the bulk of 
the Republicans, even those who are not 
personally pro-Hitler defeatists, have 
permitted partisanship to lead them into 
following the disloyal leadership of the 
Vandcnbergs, Tafts and Xycs. 

It is to be expected that the CIO and 
other unions which take up the weapon 
of political action from now on will 
work in cooperation with the "Fighting 
Forty" which is also going to the people 
to urge them to influence the future 
votes of their colleagues.

purely from shock receiyed when 
he was felled by a speeding hit-

fined to bed. The brilliant wTiter

as a result. There were no

station! he became extremely 
belligerent ond used violent 
and Gtbusive language ogqinst 
the doctor who gave him o. so- 
briety test The doeior pro- 
nounced him drunk. 
Defense Attorney Curtis C. 
Taylor, representing Butler, did 
not aljlow him to take the stand, 
but succeeded in having his bail 
reduced to SIOOO.OO. Tht accused 
man and his attorney were or- 
dered to appear in Department 
43 of the Superior Court on .\u- 
gust 2nd for plea. 

Look out the window. YE 
GODS! The people are pldceting.' j 
Look again. They're having a j

Angelus service is two-fold in purpose: First, it 
is a fitting tribute to the departed; second, a 
source of consolation for those who remain. In 
order to distinguish this new and finer type of 
service from the average funeral, we speak of it 
as a Afemorial Ser\ ice. Yet this new er and finer 
type of service costs no more.

To have taken so authentic a

A Negro musician whose work 
as arranger is widely known in 
the entertainment field began 
training at the U. S. Naval 
Training Station, Great Lakes, 
Illinois, recently. 

The new recruit is Dudley 
Alonzo Brooks, Jr., 29, of 819 
East 32nd Street, Los Angeles. 

A professional pianist for ten 
years and an arranger for six, 
Brooks worked on pictures in

admirable trait in jan entertainer. Piljncvci forget my 
first impression oif linking the' namic HOLLIDAY 
with that of WHiTpMAN in their ONLY TER- 
RIFIC collaboratjioni "TRAVELIN'. LIGHT"!! 
Nope! I don't thiink Miss Holliday will fade out, her 
8ty|c is too uniqu^!!! j. . . , 

A wee birdie fell in with some hep news that a cer- 
tain Dorothy Laning of local areas COLLECTS Herb 
Jcfferics records . . . NO LESS! . . . he's the former 
vocalist with Dukei. Tune in Herbic! Which reminds 
me that the Eddie Beal Trio at Jefferies' '^'BLACK 
FLAMINGO" nite-^spot, knocked Yours Truly right 
out with a^wing yersion of "LIEBESTRAUM" . . . 
as well as Herb himself crooning "MARIE" . . . last

Dan Qrissom who made a BIG hit in his vocal 
recording to LUNCE FORDS superbly arranged 
"BLUES IN THE NIGHT" has had to leave Luncc- 
ford because of these draft-y days!! . . . Dig! the fact 
that Cab Callowav has his first booking which began, 
July 15, since the old Cotton. Club days, at New York's 
PARK CENTRAL HOTEL. So once again night- 
lifers can take a gander at THE Mr. Calloway after 


The news that Mme. Chiang Kai Shek's recent 
visit to the U. S. A. has inspired a new ballad, "The 
Voice of a Rose", by Edgar Leslie and Peter Dc Rose 
(he's nf "Deep Purple" Fame) . . . Also note the fact 
that HOT LIPS PAGE and his band now have a 
solo spot at the FAMOUS DOOR in Manhattan.— 
Remember my mentioning BUNK JOHNSON the 
ace trumpeter and fornier teacher of Louis Armstrong, 
a coupla weeks back, well seems he has taken 'Frisco 
by storm with his "Hot Seven" musicians when THAT 
series of Sundav afternoon Jazz Concerts began July 
11th ■ I 

And I wonder how many persons realize that after 
coming; a LONG wav up on the ladder of fame, 
HAZEL SCOTT still remembers her childhood 
friends to the point of even sending Easter Greetings!!! 
Such qualities as that is what MAKES a STAR!!! . . . 
Also Hazel is being kept pretty busy with those heavy 
recording sessions with her studio in Hollywood!! — 
XMAS week should positively JUMP" when NEW 
YORK features TIMMIE LUNCEFORD at the 
the ROXY adding its bit with JIMMIE DORSEY. 

I understand the Miller-Post publicity office is in a 
dilemma about this as they handle all these ork's pub- 
licity. Let's ease their headache with a hope that 
> HARRY JAMES does NOT book into the PARA- 
MOUNT for the SAME week. They handle HIS 
news too, ya! SEE!!! . . . Latch on Gates to the idea 
of phonographs being made on film instead of was 

\-- Seems as if FATS WALLER'S "EARLY TO 

FED", tunes in the show of the same name REALLY 

clicked during a record breaking run in Boston . . . 

And Fats used to be organist at the famous Abysinnia 

Church ih Harlem, where his Dad was pastor, ya 

know!! . . a while back!!! . . . For you CLARK 

GABLE fans, Clark soon due in Hollywood on his 

legal 30 day furlough will feature in a new film!! 

Don't swoon now gals, wait 'til the film is out!

No means overlook the fact that DUKE ELLING- 
. TON'S new collaboration with Bob Russel (of "Don't 
Vet Around Much Anymore") called, "DON'T DO

Stepin Fetchit, whojin real IJfe 
is Lincoln A. Perry, hid been Re- 
cused by Juanita, of 3730 Praijrie 
Avenue, of attacking; her in his 
room at the Vincenne$ Hotel, 601 
East 36th Street. A little later, 
evidently realizing what being 
found guilty of such an accusa- 
tion might mean to Perry, sjhe 
retracted her statement in the 
courtroom of Judge Joseph B. 


ture pictures and for various 
short subjects. 

Before going into movie work, 
the Bluejacket arranged for sev- 
eral well known dance bands, 
in eluding Count Basie in 1941; 
Benny Goodman in 1940; Floyd 
Ray in 1939 and Les Hite in 

among its many other features. 
. . . BOBBY BROOKS, sepia 
youngster discovered in Ben Car- 
ter's Children's Choir. Bobby will 
put forth a vocal on "DO I 
WORRY", In the film . . . Also 
some raves on the fact that in 
St. Louis PETE JOHNSON and 
ALBERT AMMONS, sepia Boogie 
Woogie kings, pack 'em in at the 
CIRCUS SNACK BAR . . . Neither 
claim to read a note of music 
and Ammons learned by follow- 
ing the keys on one of those OLD 
McCOYS! . . . 

A PLAYER piano, NO LESS!!! 

The two pianists are billed as 
the "Peerless Pianists from Car- 
negie Hall" . . . where I remem- 
ber tearing down the staid Car- 
negie Hall when they featured a 
BOOGIE WOOGIE conc'ert a 
while back! . . . Also look for 
Mabel Scott in that tricky song- 
number she features at the Club 
Alabam, I s'aw her a few nites 
back and La Scott Is most 
GROOVY! . . . Also Wynonie Har- 
ris with his appealing blues 
singing. How about catching the 
APEX Club for breakfast, you 
MIGHT see a lot of stars, etc. 
you don't ordinarily, see! Any- 
way yours truly blew a righteous 
top over some GOOD fried 

"SECOND HONEYMOON" . . . Universal film,

"So what," laughed Juanijta, 
"HE doesn't have to go." 

"Does he mean that much 
you?" she was askeA "Are ypu 
willing to go to jail for 
sake?" ; 

"I would consider it an honqr," 
she answered. "I think he's; so 
wonderful." i 

Perry's case was continued : to 
the present week to permit the 
stale's attorney to conduct an 
investigation. Stepin is worried 
not only about the outcome of 
the trial, but also for its effect 
upon a pending movie contract. 
He has one son, Jemajo, )L3, 
whose mother died when he wias 
only three years old. Stepin hias 
never remarried.

limbs — tree limbs (not the Earl Carroll beauty va- 
riety) — are used for various purposes. But today, we are 
going to crawl out on one, figuratively speaking, to make a 
guess as to the winner of Saturday's fightfest at Gilmore 
stadium between Henry (Hustlin' Hank) Armstrong and 
Willie (Will o' the Wisp) Joyce. 

Joyce, a "sweet" fighter by the way, boasts the only 
unquestioned win over Hank since the latter began his sen- 
sational comeback a little over a year ago. The Garj", 
Indiana, lightweight registered his stunning win last 
March after Hank had undergone a tonsillectomy. 

In that bout Joyce suffered a broken jaw which rend-

Moore began the fireworics 
when he protested Roth as a 
referee. Having protested Roth be- 
fore a previous ba>^, for reasons 
which do not now exist, Moore 
felt that .\be might vote against 
Hank if the ho\it was close. 

Trafton followed in the heated 
argument over Roth by also pro- 
testing the naming of this arbiter 
because Moore had protested 
him. He felt that in the event 
Roth was named the latter might 
favor Hank. 

Commissioner Jules Covey, who 
presided over the session at 
which four commission members 
were present, finally convinced 
Moore, however, with a neat bit 
of oratory in the interests of fair 
play, et cetera, that he should

She continued to eat her meal 
and when she finished she felt 
pains in her abdomen and tliroat 
They were so painful that they 
bent her almost double, she said. 
Employes rushed to her and 
asked her if she thought that it 
was anything that she had eaten 
which catiaed her illness. 

She said that the manager of 
the place called an ambulance 
and she was removed to the re- 
ceiving hospital where many tiny 
pieces of- glass were removed 
from her stomach and throat 

After being treated there she 
was removed to her home where 
she is unde the treatment of a 
private physician. 

Mrs. Allen said that she is an 
expectant mother. 

Mrs. Allen's attorney said that 
he was unable to determine 
whether the glass had been de- 
liberately placed in her food or 
not. He added that other discrim- 
inations have taken place at the 
same cafe and the owners have 
been sued.

certain individuals and they re- 
turn to their assignments with 
their chest bursting out of their

It is time to quit kidding our-

wait for cliques or individuals 
to get credit for obtaining the 
appointment of a race supervi-

Often I have heard employes 
affectionately express their great 
admiration for the late Postmas-

It is said he treated all men

bearing malice toward none. Old 
timers who knew him intimately 
said that it was on his agenda 
to make a race foreman before 
his untimely demise. Here is a 
wonderful opportunity for the 
present Postmaster Hon. Mrs. 
Mary D. Briggs to fulfill the am- 
bitioi^ of her revered husband, 
whom she holds in great esteem.

costs unless we achieve now, this minute, TODAY, 
maximum unity. ^ i 

Nov} is the moment to fling every ounce of en- 
ergy into the battle. \W her eoi the Ku Klux Klan, 
the Hearst press, M'fftin Dies and red-baiting 
- company, attempt to stimulate insurrection against 
the government^ attempt to split America 
into a flaming race var, it is our task to answer 
these traitors viith the resplendent unity of an 
■ aroused victory- hungry America. 

We must hug our White comrades-in-arms ever 
closer. We must make new friends. We cannot wait 
for them to come to us. We must get up, go outdoors, 
and look for new white friends ; become, each and 
every one, a missionary of interracial solidarity. 

We must drive IfOW to end Jim-Crow unionism. 
Not because we arc opposed to unionism, but because 
we are in favor of it. We will submit to no union 
jim-crow now because we understand that this division 
of the workers rebounds: to the benefit of lai)or's en- 
emies, not its friends. We know that today any policy 
which divides the American people with Hitler's slide 
rule is a weapon of our country's foes. 

The drive for full a^d adequate housing of the 
thousands of Negro war workers can and will be 
won NOW. The campaign to destroy, once and 
for all, race housing restrictions can be won 


What is required is the unflinching unity and or- 
ganization of our people along with every other pat- j 
riotic, win-thc-war force^ Disease, we know, is the j 
respecter of no property restriction. We understand! 
that unsanitary congestion in the Negro neighborhood i 
is an infection which will spread throughout Los An- j 
geles, once started.^ We must head off such a calamity, i 

Further, our city bears a responsibility to the citi- j 
zens whose daily business is the production of those; 
weapons which will ensure our continued existence as 
a free and sovereign commonwealth. ; 

The unity of the Negro people NOW is essential. 
Those who would disrupt that unity are the 

enemies of the war effort. They have no concep- 
tion of the necessities of the war. They have no 

idea that the'Negro people today will be satisfied 

with nothing less than^ their freedom. 

To the defeatists and betrayers in our midst, let us 
answer as our armies have answered in Sicily. 

Remember two weeks ago when Mr. Hoover said 
it was impossible to invade Europe, impossible to at- 
tack his friend Hitler across the Mediterranean? 

But today we are across the Mediterranean. What 
can he say? Come back? 

Let us answer those who say our struggle is impos- 
sible with the same monumental reply. 

Let us DO the impossible!

The meet* s chairman, Henry M. 
Miller, voiced appreciation of 
the Shipyard Workers for sup- 
port given their cause by the 
Fighting Eagle. 

Recognizing the Jim-Crow pol- 
icy as im obstruction to the all- 
out war effort, the shipyard 
work»s pledge redoubled effort 
to maintain highest production 
records at their shipyards. "We 
will build the ships to supply 
this people's war; we will build 
the unity to fight this people's 
war," said the workers. 

Herman Mazer and Chairman 
Walter E. Williams Jointly re- 
viewed the work of the Commit- 
tee for Equal Participation and 
outlined its future strategy. 

At tho conclusion of Mazer's 
address a total of one hundzad 
fifty-nine telagroma were for- 
warded to the nation's capital 
in protest of the discrimina- 
tory action of the Boilermalcers 
Local in sottin? up a Jlm-Cssw 
Auxiliaiy for Negroes. Scores 
of other wires hare since been 
placed in the President's Fair 
Emolovment Pratftices Com- 
mitte«f's bands. 

At press time, both F. E. P. C. 
representatives here are com- 
pleting a comprehensive investl. 
gation and will reoort their find- 
ings to the F. E. P. C. in Wash- 
ington, D. C. No action is ex- 
pected from the F. E. P. C. Wash- 
ington headquarters until the In- 
vestigators reports are filed. 
However, in the course of the In- 
vestigation, the point has arisen 
wherein the War Manpower 
Commission is equally charged 
with the responsibility of execut- 
ing the letter and spirit of the 
new Executive Order 9346. It 
has been pointed out that the 
W. M. C. also has the power to 
issue an order freezing Negro 
workers to their Jobs until a 
solution to the problem has been 
arrived at. 

In addUlen to tlUs. it has 
also been brought out that the 
tr. S. Maritime Cemmissien is 
the Govommsnt Agenqr ^th 
which siiipbttilders have con* 
tracts, and these contracts 
haw clauses written into thorn 
that forbid racial diserimina* 
tion among smploTeos. This 
suggests that contract funds 
might be withheld until dis- 
crimination in the yards con- 
cerned is eradicated. 
Thus, It appears conclusively, 
that the workers have a better 
than ever chance of eliminating 
the. Jim-Crow set up. In all 
events, the bitter pill of segre- 
gation has not been swallowed. 

In the future meetings of The 
Committee for Equal Participa- 
tion will be held in the down- 
stairs auditorium of the Second 
Baptist Church, 24th at Griffith 
Street every Friday night, 7:30 
p. m. 

The Committee urges all Negro 
Shipyard workers to file all com- 
plaints of discrimination on up- 
grading, hiring, firings and "card 
puling" with the Shipyard Work- 
ers Committee immediately. 
Copies of your complaint will be 
placed in the hands of the F. E.

ACTION ALHKAor om^tmo 

Responding promptly to the 
protests of the Negro community, 
the Los Angeles Housing Author* 
ity yesterday lifted its "quota 
system" from the William Mead 
Homes and Aliso Village pro- 

A statement from Nicola Giulii, 
chairman of the L. A. Housing 
Authority, held today: 

"The poller of tboJMsing 

Authority has bssn. ontll new. 

to keep within oaefa derUsp* 

ment ths uppi oalma to rotfo of 

minerittss that exUted in the 

snrronnding neighberhood& We 

cannot bewoves, ignore the de- 

plorobto housing conditions* 

nnder witlch hundreds of racial 

minority members are uWng. 

bocauss of the war time short* 

age of homes in Los Angeles. 

"Thersfero. wo or* romoring 

all restrictions of Wm. Mead 

homes and Aliso Village. The 

move will not soIts the prob- 

lem< but we beliere it will bo 

some contribution to the well* 

being of those peoplo." 

Immediate opening of Aliso 

Village, 1300 North Main Street, 

are 13 one-bedroom units; at 

Banning Homes, San Pedro, 

where white and Negro workers 

never permitted a quota system 

to exist, there are 14 furnished 

single apartments for couples 

only. Single men and women 

may be accommodated at the 

Wilmington Hall Hotel. 

A meeting of the steering com- 
mittee of the Negro Victory Com- 
mittee tonight at the upstairs of- 
fices of the California EAGLE 
will chart plans for pushing for- 
ward the campaign to secure 
adequate and sanitary housing 
for war workers. 

Housing exports point but 
that many lots are enrailabie 
for additional project emstruc- 
tion. ,Ono such locale is «rt SSth 
and Long Boaeh, adjacent to 
tho present Pueblo Del Rio pro- 
ject. Another is at 103rd and 
Contoal aronue, close to the 
Hadenda Village center. 
Scores of homes are reported 
vacant across the Main Street 
"borderline" of Negro occupancy, 
running from downtown parallel 
to the entire Central avenue dis- 
trict. The senseless, Hitlerite 
closing of these homes to habi- 
tation by Negro families is con- 
tributing to a dangerous health 
problem in the already congested 
Central avenue district. 

Removal of the quota system 
from the listed housing projects 
is to be recognized as an impor- 
tant forward step in the city's 
struggle for democratic war hous- 
ing. But many other projects in 
the county still are burdened 
with the quota mandate. 

An additional argument for 
destruetion. at long last, of 
prop e l iy race restrictions is the 
fact that mixed noighborboods 
even in the heart of rlot-tom 
Detroit were bulwarlcs of law 
and order. Wherever interra- 
cial aro permitted by law to 
live peaeoably side by side, 
danger of riot and friction is 
lessoned to tlio asro point.

Saturday evenins. Mrs. Nadine 
BdU and Mrs. Vtotorino Lyons 
held their Bridge Tournament, at 
the Center. Dae to the fact that 
Mrs. B*U worked so diligently to 
malte the affair the success it 
was, her name has been returned 
to the convalescing list, licving 
suffered a relapse of lier recent 
illness. However, Mrs. Bell wishes 
to thank all tboia who sent in 
donations, and all the members 
who helped her. Just to mention 
a few-; Mrs. Edgar Barker, Mrs. 
Berdle LaGrande, Mrs. Edythe

1 The AWVS members wish to 
dxtend to Mr. Baron Lawson, our 
sfncere hopes tliat he will soon 
be on the road of recovery and 
out of the hospital. 

I Also many thanks to the fol- 
loiwing, for their recent dona- 
tions: Mr. Rothman. of Beverly 
HUls, who gave us a lovely radio 
and two ctiairs for tho Center, 
the Keno Club for a cash dona- 
tion, The Gay Matron's, Miss C. 
Kimbrough, Mrs. MsTtle Morgan, 
Mrs. Marie Cox, Miss Eula Hen- 
derson and her lovely mother, 
Mn. Lucille Henderson, and Mrs. 
Pajul WUlIams. We could con- 
tinue on, but since we don't have 
that much space, forgive us, if 
we haven't mentioned your name, 
this time. 

Ifhose of you who attended the 
baseball game at Wrigley Field 
on July 4tti. perhaps noticed two 
of our girls in uniform, selling 
bonds and stamps. They were

Now then, there comes a time 
in oUr lives when we have a score 
to settle with our fellow man. 
Mine has been growing for weelcs 
and months, until I've decided it 
must be done now. As you know, 
our city has been over run with 
celebrities of stage and screen, 
musicians, dancers, and numerous 
other, types of entertainers. You 
also know, w^ have asked them 
to donate a few spare moments 
to entertain our servicemen, eith- 
er at: our canteen, or in the dif- 
ferent camps. Have they done so? 
One or two, yes! The majority, 
NO! Severai kind people who 
know how to get in touch with 
such entertainers, have done their 
beat to secure their services, and 
they have made a definite prom- 
ise to be on hand, but at tiie last 
moment, they didin't show up, or 
even make an excuse. Sometimes, 
they say they have to catch up 
on their sleep, can't appear be- 
cause of an engagement, and any 
other flimsy excuse. One orches- 
tra promis€Ki to donate their time 
for a dance, but demanded their 
standard price. Now I ask you, 
where is your so-called patrio. 
tism, and your appreciation for 
these boys who have given up 
everytliing to fight for you?? If 
it wasn't for them, you wouldn't 
have time to sleep, or any other 
excuse you have offered. Surely 
those of you who fought in the 
World War I remember how lone- 
some you were in some far away 
camp. Even now, some of your 
co-workers are in an army camp, 
especially those down south, ask 
them how much entertaitmient 
they have? You run out to the 
Hollywood Canteen and put on 
a grand show for the boys, but

When standing aloAe with bnx 
temptations we are t)erdied on 
the edge of a dee[i precipice, 
face to face with our Iconscience, 
There is no retreat lest in tumi 
ing we slip, and, if We are not 
careful the slightest step fprward 
may land us in a deaths lao fai 
below that it might prov^ fatal 
to our future security land nappi- 
ness. I I 

We are in grave dainger,; when 
trying to meet our temptations 
alone, without consuttatidn and 
help. In our daily struggle for 
existence, there are very few* ino- 
ments in our lives tha^ we dp hot 
need additional strength M and 
wisdom to meet the snarls of 1 
the enemy.. Remember, tempta-; 
tion is the source of all evil, 
causing much of our sickness 
and broken hearts. Clean living 
and a strong willpower is bene- 
ficial and healthy to the soul as 
well as the body.

Rationing of fresh milk should 
be prevented by strenuous ef-

solutely necessary, a commmit- 
tee of milk Industry leaders ad-

administration dairy cliief in 
Washington recently. 

In a detailed analysis of fac* 
liors applying to possible fluid

that large savings of butterfat 
and whole milk have already 
been effected aji a result of the 
reductions in butterfat content 
of cream by government order, 
which led to drastic changes In

Twentieth Century's new film, 
"Bomber's Moon" with Annabella 
and George Montgomery Is an 
attempt at something new in war 
pictures. The story revolving 
about an American Bomber pilot 
captured and held, until escape 
from German captors and aveng- 
ing of his brother's death, plus 
his various adventures involved 
provides some tense moments of 
entertainment Annabella gives 
a stimulating performance of a 
young Russian woman physi- 
cian. J 

The fllnf is tk. good one with 
the scene constantly shifting and 
holding one's attention to the 
plot (which isn't spectacular be- 
ing a fairly simply put together 
plot). The musical background 
provides a depth of meaning that 
without such melodic support the 
ordinariness 'of the story would 
stand loudly etched. Without 
such melodic support the story 
would wholly If not somewhat 
appear lacking in dynamics. The 
costuming being contemporary 
needs no special comment. How- 
ever the film does provide lor 
those interested in a good picture 
of prisoner psychology during 
war periods. 


"Bomber's Moon" is good and 
can be classed among the better 
war films as one notes with par- 
ticular satisfaction the absence 
of allied-propaganda or* an ap- 
peal to the audience. There, how- 
ever, seemed to be overiooked the 
possibility of letting the story 
revolve about the Russian wo- 
man physician, (although an at- 
tempt was made at handing back 
and forth, character significance 
between Montgomery and Anna- 
bella) so ably personified by 
Annabella. Many times the Im- 
portant implications of her po- 
sition were overlooked by the in- 
jection of a forced love -interest. 
It might be well for script-writ- 
ers and studios to note and make 
use of their observation that a 
forced love- Interest In a story is 
not always necessary to make 
the film gopd box-office, especial- 
ly if the material Is forceful as 
It stands since in real life such 
emotional Indications under un- 
usual circumstances are not al- 
ways prevalent It would be a 
real tribute to the women of the 
world who in all nationalities are 
doing their bit as well as to the 
women of Russia to let Anna- 
bella carry an entire role by her- 
self devoid somewhat of personal 
emotional emphasis but rather to 
have a concern with the more 
technical duties of her office. An- 
nabella's line, "I'll be glad to 
get back in uniform," indicates 
the potentialities of the power- 
fulness such a story can have. 

Any way, look for "Bomber's 
Moon," starring George Mont- 
gomery and Annabella!

provided under tha^new table of 
organization, the 7th Regfment is 
to be known hereafter as the 7th 
Battalion of the 29th" Regim^t of 
the California State Guard. 

To make clear in the minds of 
some persons who may be prOne 
to believe that there is possibly 
some petty reason for the change, 
all the original thirteen regi- 
ments of the State Guard were 
changed to battalions and the 
designated numbers changed. 
And as to the former 2nd Sep- 
arate Battalion, the same reason 
covers that situation. In military 
set-ups there often occur in- 
stances where small' units are 
detailed to certain localities and 
have no connection with any 
other bodies, therefore becoming 
a separate unit 

And B« oa SuadoT momiiig, - 
July 25, 1943, tha 7tb BottoUon 
of tho 29th Bagimoat of tha 
California State Guard was

In delivering his annual mes-

created much Interest as he spoke 
of the history and work of the 
Masonic Order In Alabama as a 
united and constructive force In 
the affairs of the State, and the 
need of such fraternal agency 
to combat world problems, and 
to keep a people busy looking 
forward and upward for, the 
worthwhile things of life. 

Frand Master Hendley is ac- 
tively supported and backed by 
a board of trustees composed 61 
many of the most outstanding 
Negro citizens of the country, and 
a membership remarkable for 
its . loyalty and fine spirit, and 
under his leadership the Grand 
Lodge of Alabama continues to 
make almost unbelievable prog- 
ress along all lines.

COST vs. PRICE! i, 

Funerals are the rite by which civilized man pays his final re- 
spects to those who pass into another realm. . . . Everyone, wiants For 
his departed loved one the best, the most bautiFul final tribute which in-l 
d/vidual circumstances will allow, ' 

A lovely casket, flowers, music, a distinctive chapel, un^trusive 
attention to every detail — ^these arc the things which make this great rite 
into the kind of tribute which we all want for our loved one. 

However, it is not always within the power of these who pay this 
tribute to pay the price' for the type of funeral which is desired. . . . The 
matter of cost enters into the picture. j j 

Yet, at the People's Funeral Home, where the Golden RiM{k the 
guiding principle, cost determines only certain etements of a fwi^al serv- 
ice. Regardless oif circumstances, no one need fail to give unto the da- 
parted loved one the very best, because here, price is adjustedj to indi- 
vidual circumstances— and quality if never sJKrific e d reg iar d lesii 

Those not acquainted with this -friendly institution : may 'well ask 
how this can be. Those whom we have servea could tell better than we. 
They could tell of the warm, Kuman understanding with which their meeds, 
and desires are met. They could tell of our lovely Ivory C^'pci with its 
hidden organ, and of the private rooms for the family i . . and they 
co«ld tell that from beginning to end, from the time \h^i institution is 
given the case, to the cemetery service, every detail receives icrupulou 
attention. i \ 

For at the People's Funeral Home the owners, tiiemsi^es mor- 
ticians of long experience, personally haqjdle ftrvy importanl part of 
their work. Th^ ts no shortage of help here! | . j 

Centrady iocjfted in the very heart of the community wpere there 
is always plenty of parking space, this institution can and does offer to 
every patron, regardless of purse, the best. .j hj A 

WHh vi, sorrow is sacred; its penetration Into Uni heaHe^of tiies^' 
who hare suffered a loss Is not a signal for profit maUaii, bvt rather aa 
opportunity to serve. \ \ ■■ | , , J. j
