Mr. Moore had written In his "Echoes from Duluth” that Ne groes at the head of the lake were lethargic. Mrs. Waters’ reply Is: Deer editor: In *n*wer to Mr. Moor*', “Echoes from Duluth," I would like to eejr, I am afraid Mr. Moor* ha* hi* statistic* a little Jumbled. In (act. I don’t think he know* juat what he la talking about In the Orel place, there la • Negro problem In Duluth, but the people are not Ignoring it We have an Interracial committee of the YWCA made up of college women, then we have the Inter racial club, made up of younger women and men. Both are very active and do thing* when caaee' of dlacrimlnatlon are brought be fore them. Through the effort! of the NAACP, a young high Khool graduate waa placed In the water and light department aa a cleric. We have one clerk In the Houae warea department of I. Fremuth. I do feel there are other atorea who could follow suit, and I feel that will come about In due time. I think Mr. Moore la way off when he aayi there are 200 Negro men employed at the ateel plant, while there are between 20 and 2S. Mr. Moore la a newcomer here, and doea not know the true facta. The Negro population In Duluth la very small. If we were larger In numbers, we could accompliah more. Taking everything Into con aideration, I think the people of Duluth are doing truly well. Of course, there la always room for Improvement In any city. Zillsh Waters. St. Louis Church Rebuilds After 1945 Fir* ST. LOUIS, MO.

The public is invited to attend the meeting, which will be held at the Hallie Q. Brown Community Cen ter, Kent and Aurora. Mr. Jones, here to launch the annual membership drive of the St. Paul Branch, is known to sev- eral St. Paul residents. He spoke to a large and enthusiastic audi ence here a year ago. Under the direction of Mrs. Ad die C. Few, membership chairman, the St. Paul Branch intends to launch the greatest membership drive in years. The need for ag gressive united action in the fight for Civil Rights is urgent How the Senate filibuster prevented the enactment of Civil Rights leg islation in this Congress will be one of the topics discussed at the meeting. Today the NAACP has a mem bership of a half million people in 45 states.

She then told about her fear of the judge who whispered to her in jail that he was the only per son she could trust. She told how she escaped from him by hiding out in the woods. "I've been running like a rab bit ever since my husband was lynched," she stated. Because of the publicity and newspaper pressure, two men were finally arrested for the mur der. The jury for them was chosen in 14 minutes, and two of were allowed to testify as to the character of the defendants. Al though Mrs. Mallard positively Identified these men, they were acquitted. "They could have caught the men within one hour,” she de clared. “I saw their facea Every body in the community knew who they were. And why didn't the police take fingerprints? They could have called out their blood hounds. All they needed to do was trace the tire tracks of the cars." "But it was the publicity in the case that saved my life,” she stated. Mrs. Mallard's voice broke often as she spoke, and she seemed puzzled that such could happen here. Bhe compared Negroes in Georgia to the birds, stating, "It’s an open season in Georgia at all times against Negroes, while at some season men are jailed for shooting birds.” "I was afraid once,” she stated, "but I’m not afraid anymore. People say I shouldn’t, but I’m going back to Georgia." Leroy Carter of the national of fice of the NAACP accompanied Mrs. Mallard on her trip. Mrs. Mallard, by her nation-wide tour to tell her story, hopes to create sentiment for a federal anti lynching statute. She was brought here under the auspices of the national office of the NAACP, and in cooperation of the Minneapolis branch of the organization. Albert Allen, president of the branch, presided. He introduced as platform guests a number of prominent workers in the human relations field (see photo else where) as honored guests in rec ognition of their services.

Our recent criticism of the Duluth Negro’s lack of fight was received with mixed feelings. Some thought we went too far, while others felt we could have gone farther. We admit that the accusations were rather broad, therefore we feel that clarification is in order. Among other things, this writer said that Duluth Negroes were self satisfied and compla cent, uninterested in civic and community affairs. This we say again-but with ex ception. That exception is the few Negroes who are continuously on the firing-line to obtain better conditions for colored people. Out of a total of 400 Negroes in Duluth, less than fifteen are active in pushing back the ever darkening clouds of racial pre judice and discrimination. These few people can't win alone; they need your help, and now. The N.A.A.C.P. starts its mem bership drive the third Sunday in April, and runs through June, re fute the above by supporting this drive 100 per cent. One can still hear talk in de fense of the places we lambasted a few weeks ago. Some still say that there is no prejudice shown when Negroes visit the better places for snack or drink. Well, we visited three of the so called better places last week, and were served—after out sitting one shift of waitresses and half of the next. That situation exsists in far too many of the downtown estab lishments, and this is the basis of my "beef." Slow and slovenly service can mean only one thing: "We don’t want your patronage,” especially in places noted for prompt and courteous service. A friend asked me what I ex pected to gain from these articles, "Why not let a dead dog lie?” he reasoned. Well, the first thing, the "dog" provides material for the column. Secondly, these things of which we write are facts, and facts of Interest are news. To quote the AMSTERDAM NEWS, "We don’t make the news, we print it." Last but far from being least, it might prod the brother into belated action. If anyone knows of a place of refinement that offers courteous service, where a colored person can eat or drink withoua choking with embarassment and anger, let me know. An interview will be obtained from the management and generous space will be given here. We promised to tell about the Cox family this week, but due to lack of information we are forced to wait until next week. By the way. judging from the rumblings we’ve heard, at least we art* being read. Keep the ear phones in working order—echoes are drifting your way.
