Oh! What a Grand and Glorious Feeling!
Saturday night when the news of the attack on French northern
African colonies by our American troops came over the ether American
hearts thrilled. At last our men of arms had struck what all hoped will
be the blow that heralds an offensive which will not end until the vic
tory is won.
For months peace-loving America has had to seemingly stand by
while the aggressor nations have trod the world under their feet. Such
a position, as necessity had forced upon the United States, did not be
come the nation because while we are a peaceful nation whenever any
body jumps on us we always give them more than they send.
The Lord knows the United States is not perfect. The Negro knows
it better than any nationality group within its border but he also knows
the U. S. is the most perfect place for the common man today. He also
knows that his claim to being a true patriotic American cannot be
denied by any.
Every true American was filled with gladness, even those who had
boys in the armed services they knew not where, for Americans are of
one mind that oppression such as exemplified by Hitler shall vanish from
the earth.
It was a grand and glorious feeling to hear that the Yanks were
on the march!
Don’t Cash Those Bonds!
Those who remember the high wages of the last war and the de
pression that followed hope the economic planning of this war will pre
vent a recurrence of the last debacle. War bond buying among the Negro
citizenry wherever they have had jobs has been great. These bonds in
many cases represent the only savings of many people. Recently, how
ever, observers in other cities and those here, have noticed a tendency
of the workers to cash in their bonds as soon as possible. In many in
stances the cashing of the bonds is not necessary.
Buying of these bonds helps our war effort. Saving of these same
bonds will help the individual owner during the leaner days which al
ways come after war. Don’t cash your bonds unless you just have to.
Keep them for the rainy days!
Editorial Notes
This year with so many women working maybe Dad won’t have
to stand all the Christmas bills.
Maybe you have noticed that your favorite weekly has grown a
column and is longer in size. The only way it can stay that way is
for you, gentle reader, to spend some of your money with some of
these advertisers who really make large newspapers possible.

It’s getting so you can’t tell a Negro from other fellow citizens
in the dailies. Believe us it is some improvement and it will be felt
beneficially in the realm of good race relationships.
A correspondent tells us that the people are actually behaving much
better. Morals are better. With everybody working it seems that
plenty folks don’t have time to be bad between sleeping and working
eight hour shifts.
A stranger in our midst said a few days ago: “I have never been
in a city where people of our group seemed so busy trying to destroy
each other, morally, as they seem to be in Buffalo. A visitor here gets
the impression that there are no really worthwhile men and women of
our group in this city, because the ‘supposed-to-be’ leaders take up most
of their time with strangers telling them how important they are and
how unimportant other ‘would-be’ leaders are.
“Away from here we hear of certain outstanding men who have
won laudable reputations for themselves and thus advanced the cause
of the race in the eyes of the general public, but when we come to Buf
falo and make inquiries among people of our group, we hear a different
story. Is it possible that envy and jealousy, or pure cussedness (?),
have completely, possessed most of our people in Buffalo?”
The interrogator is a resident of Detroit, a professional man who
spent two days in our city recently, and he directed his question at the
editor of this publication.
We assured the visitor that there ARE worthwhile men and women
of our group in Buffalo, but that our city, like every other city, has some
rotten eggs in it; that in all probability he had come in contact with
some of our bad “hen fruit,” and that he had evidently been unduly
influenced by them.
It is unfortunate that any visitor from other sections should be
thrown in contact with the muck-raking, shallow-minded, irresponsible
character assassins—scallaways who infest our city—and to guard
visitors from such experiences we ought to do something about it. A
free use of some kind of vermin extermination process would be desir
able. —Buffalo Star.
Three for Hitler
There was a time when a lynching was something that affected a
particular community or state, in some instances, the nation. But in
this war time a community that stages a lynching is working for Hitler
and Tojo. For that reason, Mississippi’s shameful orgy of three lynch
ings within the five days of October 12-17 may be counted three scores
for Hitlerism.
On October 12, Mississippi reverted to the old lynching days which
many persons thought were gone forever, when a mob hanged two 14-
year-old boys who were accused of attempting to rape a 13-year-old
white girl. The youngsters were said to have been taken before a judge
and to have confessed, which doesn’t mean a thing, Mississippi methods
being what they are. They were then lodged in jail where the mob “over
powered” the police, took them to a bridge near Shubuta, Miss., and
hanged them.
Governor Paul Johnson is reported as being shocked over these
two monstrous crimes, but before he could recover, a mob at Laurel,
Miss., took a convicted murderer from the jail and lynched him on Oc
tober 17. The man had had a trial, had been convicted, but had been sen
tenced to life imprisonment instead of death. The mob did not like that,
not when the victim was white and the murderer colored.
These lynchings, bringing the total for 1942 to six, demonstrate
once more that nothing short of a federal anti-lynching law has a chance
to check mob violence. The states have either made no effort to punish
the lynchers, or have gone through the motions of investigating, coming
always to the conclusion that the murderers cannot be found. In the
notorious lynching at Sikeston, Mo., which ushered in these crimes for
the year on January 25, the Southeastern Missouri community virtually
told the world through its newspapers and other spokesmen to go to hell,
that it would lynch people if it chose to do so, and nobody had a right to
object or interfere.
We think Washington has a right, nay, a duty, to interfere. These
lynchings are sabotaging our war effort, making it easier for Japan to
influence the hundreds of millions of colored peoples in the Far East
against the United Nations. American mobs make our ally, China, sus
picious of the democracy of white people. Already Gandhi has told the
Indian people that America’s sincerity can be measured by the way she
treats her Negroes. One can imagine what Brazil, our newest and very
valued ally, a nation of 25 per cent “colored” according to American
standards, must be thinking.—Crisis Magazine.
Help Comes, Though Late
Now that production for war has caused women to be employed
generally, more people will understand the extra burden the Negro
woman has borne, who besides being wife and mother, has also been
wage earner all these years in order to piece out the meager earnings
for her man. She has had to neglect her children to feed them.
This problem of care for children while the mother is away at
work, is engrossing official attention today. Action will be taken as a
part of our war effort. Paternal solicitude for America’s future citizens,

To the Editor: Months ago when your paper, the local Urban
Leagues, the Council of Negro Organizations and other groups, were
campaigning for jobs for Negroes little support was forthcoming from
the labor unions and few jobs from industry. This remained true for
months until one plant opened its doors to Negroes. Later another plant
followed the lead of the first plant and even today there are only two
war plants that employ large groups of our people.
For the most part neither industry nor labor unions have lifted
scarcely a finger to give the Negroes of this country a break except in
rare occasions. It therefore behooves the Negro worker to proceed
with caution in his relations with both management and the unions
whenever he gets a chance for a job.
There are bad selfish employers and there are bad selfish unions.
There are still employers who will not give a Negro a job and there are
still unions which will not give a Negro a card—and there are still em
ployers who will give Negroes only certain types of jobs and there are
still unions and union organizers who will use Negroes as catspaws,
get them in bad with industry where they are usually on trial and then
leave them high and dry.
For years your paper has criticised discriminating employers. For
years it has supported labor organizations, and evidently believes
in the theory and practice of collective bargaining. Your paper is
well aware that union labor even now except in exceptional cases has
been just as bad in its attitude towards the Negro, as have been the em
ployers and with far less cause. Many of the most successful all-Negro
unions have been built with sweat, blood and tears with little or no help
from the labor moguls.
We have no record of a single labor union doing more than pass
a resolution —if that—months ago when we were trying to get Northern
Pump and other plants to employ Negro workers.
Now that two plants in this area have opened their doors Negroes
must remember that they are still on trial—that every move they make
should be one to insure their place in the industry of tomorrow. They
should not fall for every soothsayer who comes along promising them
heaven on earth—unless that same guy was around months ago helping
in the fight to get jobs for them. In these two plants to which we refer
not a single Negro had to pay a cent for a job inside the plant. None
of the individuals or organizations who made the placements carried on
the job crusade for personal gain, and, strange to say, the chief employer
of Negroes in this area VOLUNTEERED to open up the plant he oper
ates to Twin City Negroes who had received no consideration before
that time.
The things we write here are predicated solely on our interest
in the Negroes of this community. Selfishly so too, because our years of
work here among our people have convinced us that we Negroes in our
highly peculiar position must learn to look out for ourselves in order to
secure the respect of both management and labor. We expect manage
ment to protect its interests, we expect the labor unions to take care of
their position and the Negro must do the same thing. He must not re
lax until he is sure that either of the above is honest and sincere to
wards him.
Such honesty and sincerity cannot be proven in a day or a month or
even a year. The basis for proof should be accomplishment and the
record, all else means nothing. Most of industry is controlled by white
people, good, bad and indifferent. Most of organized labor is of the same
makeup. Negro workers must not let either industry or the unions use
them to pull their chestnuts out of the fire. When a firm proves itself
fair and upright in its dealings with its Negro employees it should have
their support; the same should be true of a labor union but both should
be made to prove their claims of interest.
It is certainly not wise in our opinion for Negro workers to allow
themselves in this area where they still do not have a foothold in in
dustry to be used as a weapon by any firm or any organization.
Just a look back to one year ago and a look around the city even
now and you won’t find either industry or labor unions doing much for
the Negroes who seek jobs, except as the necessity of the shortage of
manpower forces them.
All of these years we have fought the cause of the Negroes of
these two cities. We are going to keep on fighting until every man and
woman, white or black, is given an opportunity to serve and make their
contribution. However, we have a right to expect the Negroes to begin
to look, and look critically, at every movement which is supposed to be
for their interest and be sure that they are not being USED as they have
been for these many years by groups whose interest has suddenly
evinced itself AFTER Negroes have managed to get on a payroll.

Camphor Memorial Methodist
Church Notes: At the close of the
morning service last Sunday, Rev.
Clarence T. R. Nelson received
many compliments on what was
called by some “the best sermon”
of his pastorate here. The pastor
preached on the subject “We Ought
to Give Thanks to God for the
Church.” He was very frank in
pointing out many ways in which
people show that they really do not
appreciate the Church as they
should. He closed the sermon with
a personal testimony on why he
appreciated the Church.
Mr. James Curtis, chairman of
the Steward Board, made a
straight-forward talk to those
present, following the sermon. The
Flying Red Division, led by Mrs.
Josie Williams, reported $50.00 in
the Camphor Victory Drive and the
Fighting Blues with Mrs. Katie
Robinson as the General, reported
$47.50. As the Victory Campaign
approaches its climax all three
divisions are close together. More
than SSOO in cash have been re
ported to date.
Two great services are being
planned for Sunday. Rev. Nelson
will preach at the 11 a. m. service.
All members and friends who have
not completed payment on their
pledges in the Victory Campaign
are urged to complete the payment
of their pledges by Sunday. A
favorite song service will be held
at 7:45 p. m. After an appeal by
Rev. Nelson and a talk by Mr.
Frank Boyd in the service last
Sunday thirty-five persons promised
to write letters of protest to Presi
dent Roosevelt, Senator Shipstead
and Representative Melvin Maas,
against the mistreatment and dis
crimination against Negro soldiers
in the South.

We must condemn coarseness, lack of ambition, criminality wher
ever they appear. But in the case of Negro youth, we know that they
are the helpless victims of the system which compelled both parents
to work. More general employment and higher wage for the Negro
man are among social gains being made. In time they will create the
Negro home. But like all social changes there will be a lag between
this start toward the mother remaining at home, and her realizing that
her care is more valuable than money. Like her white sister, she must
contribute her part in these war times when the federal set-up for
child car is the beginning of the time when Negro children will get
home training like others have.—K. C. Call.
Pilgrim Church News: Pilgrim
paid a small part of its debt to the
boys in service last Sunday morn
ing when a flag in their honor was
unveiled during a patriotic program
with parents, relatives, legionnaires
as guests and Boy Scouts as ushers.
Mrs. Annie Foster, president of the
Ladies’ Aid Society, was program
chairman. Major Samuel Ransom
led the salute to the flag.
The L. W. Harris Gospel Chorus,
under the direction of Miss Arlee
Harris, appeared last Sunday eve
ing at First Lutheran church where
they were praised for their sing
ing. We feel that this group de
serves recognition for being con
stant and dependable. The new
choir robes were dedicated Sunday
afternoon at the vesper service.
Mirs. Mattie Rhodes and Mr. Mark
Gibbs were guest soloists. Rev.
Ware was eloquent in a sermon in
which he charged the choir to “sing
in your heart to God.”
“Love Is Tough” will be Rev.
Ware’s text next Sunday. It is to
be a direct message to the heart
of man and with a mystery to be
revealed Sunday morning.
Sunday night will be Missionary
night. Besides the sermon, high
lights of an address given at the
Semi-annual Missionary meeting of
the Women’s Baptist Union will be
given by Miss Virginia Swanson of
Terminal Island, Calif., and Mrs.
S. E. Ware. Miss Swanson has
worked with the Japanese there and
was present during their evacuation.
Her uncensored information should
be important to any American in
terested in a working democracy.
Mrs. Ware is one of the new Board
members of the W. B. U. and led
devotionals at the afternoon session
of the Missionary meeting. Come
out and hear their reports.—Wanda

Afro-American Says F.E.P.C.
New Deal Has ‘Slight Odor’
Negro Members Agree
(From Afro-American)
All is not well with the Presi
dent’s Fair Employment Practice
Committee (FEPC).
Established over a year ago to
interpret and administer F. D. R.’s
Executive Order 8802, which re
quires war plants to give “fair and
equitable” employment to all work
ers without regard to race, religion,
or national origin, the committee
had no power to enforce the order,
and depended on public hearings
and newspaper publicity to whip
cheesy employers and unions into
Naturally, the committee’s pub
licity made enemies among unions
and employers who favored exclu
sion of colored workers, Jews and
foreigners from war work. And
when the FEPC went into the
South, with its mixed membership,
and held hearings in Birmingham,
Southern Senators and Congress
men squawked their heads off about
social equality.
Mark Ethridge, a so-called liberal
Southerner, resigned as chairman
of the committee. Ethridge spoke
those famous tory lines, which said
in effect: “The South will never
give up segregation for Roosevelt
nor for Hitler.” He was succeeded
by Dr. Malcolm Mac Lean, president
of Hampton Institute.
President Feels the Heat
With heat turned on the White
House from three sides (unions,
employers and the South) and the
November elections so close, Mr.
Roosevelt took steps last summer
to get from under. He took away
FEPC’s independent status and
transferred the committee to Mc-
Nutt’s War Manpower Commission
There was an immediate howl
that the President was selling his
own committee down the river, and
the President hastened to issue a
statement of denial. Far from
weakening the FEPC and Executive
Order No. 8802, Mr. Roosevelt said,
both would be strengthened by the
change and the benevolent leader
ship of McNutt.
There the matter stood until last
week. For three months FEPC
hasn’t struck a lick of work, just
marked time, waiting for Mr. Mc-
Nutt to call it in and define its
He got around to it last week.
Colored Members Absent
FEPC has five white and two
colored members. Mr. McNutt
called in three of the white mem
bers, Chairman Mac Lean, Commit
tee Member David Sarnoff of RCA,
and the committee’s paid secretary,
Lawrence Cramer.
The session was long, and Mr.
McNutt didn’t tarry. He left Fow
ler Harper, a deputy, to iron out
the details with the FEPC trio.
What they worked out had a faint
odor. WMC’s own colored man
power service, under Dr. Robert
Weaver, was abolished. FEPC was
taken in as a substitute.
It will make investigations, hold
hearings, and function in any case
only after it has first gotten per
mission of General McSherry, Mc-
Nutt’s deputy, and after approval
has been given by the WMC direc
tor of the region in which the in
vestigation or hearing is to be

Chairman Mac Lean took the new
agreement back to FEPC board
members and asked them to dis
cuss it.
Milton Webster (A. F. of L.) was
quick to say “No,” protesting that

stamp O. K. rather than for a dis

which only white FEPC members
were summoned. They pointed out
that the committee was mixed, and
any vital policy-making sub-com
mittee should also be mixed.
The chief minority left out of
the war effort is colored, they said,
and yet the white members of the
committee appointed by the White
House to remedy the situation make
the arrangements first and then call
in the colored members last.
Objections Expressed
FEPC, they point out, should no
more be subject to the Manpower
Commission than to the War De
partment, Navy, or any other ex
ecutive branch. It deals with dis
crimination against minorities and
might want to investigate WMC it

FEPC should be subject to the
President alone, not be thrown to
WMC, McNutt, McSherry, and re
gional WMC directors, who in many
cases are political appointees and
are sensitive to political pressure.
Under a political setup, plants
with government contracts need
have no fear of a Presidential order,
they can resist simply by telephon
ing a Congressman and having him
tell a regional director to go slow.
Playing Politics or Just Playing?
That is an excellent way to play
politics with the war effort, but
anybody who has a boy at Guadal
canal, or any of the other fronts
on which we fight, will wonder why
we do not choose something not
quite so important to play with.
What Is My Task?
Editor: Our government is ask
ing for scrap and metal of all kinds.
Many folks have responded, while
others have been uncooperative.
Grease, fats, and other kitchen foods
that have been thrown into the gar
bage cans will help win the war.
This writer feels that the house
wives of the United States could
almost win the war out of the
What do you have stored in your
cellar or attic that you have no im
mediate use for? Yes, you have
given, many of you, but have you
given all? My task and yours is
to give all or lose the freedom we
have. Metal fixtures, pipes, old
grates, tin pails, old iron fences and
old stoves and many other things
will help. Uncle Sam can take all
of the scrap and grind it up into
guns and bullets. It appears to
me that since we are in the war, it’s
better to give scrap than blood.
The Oklahoma Black Dispatch, a
Negro weekly, recently stated that
in a city of 25,000 if each citizen
were to produce twelve and one-half
pounds of metal, a goal of three
million pounds could be reached.
Twelve and one-half pounds of
metal, this paper continues, will
produce a thirty calibre machine
gun. Finally my task irrespective
of race, religion or nationality is
to become individually responsible
for the winning of a military vic
tory. After this victory is won,
we can then turn our attention to
building in America an economic,
scientific and religious society based
on the worth of man and not on the
worth of money.
