Kegro Labor to Play Conspicuous Part. : I : Chicago, 111., April 17. That there is a determination to really "Get Somewhere" in the new conditions arising out of the results of the "World War," is strongly evident from the discussion relative to the big industrial parley to be held In Chicago or New York , on return of President Wilson. It is stated by feaders of thought here that there mnst be no "parley" of the magnitude suggested without represntative of the Negro group be ing present and taking an active part in the deliberations. The information 'was sent out from Washington during the week that President Wilson - upon his return to this country, will issue a call for an industrial conference, the pur pose of which wilt be to enable, cap ital, labor and the government to join hands in an amicable program for readjusting Industry. It is to bo held late in May, or early In June, if possible. -' The president. has already received the . suggestion in. a report from Washington and is understood to fa vor It The report suggests a clari fication of the industrial situation by the two following moves on the part of the chief executive: , 1. A allina ,-' ..in industrial con- ference,-or 'psj-Attuient; to." devise a constructive program, to meet the peace needs of the Country's busi ness life. , 2. Reaffirmation of the authority of the war labor board as a co-oper ative tribunal of Justice during the transitory period, or until the in dustrial conference conclusions are put into effect. It Is pointed out that the personnel of no. such conference would be complete without the presence of representative Negroes. . During the last three years the Negroes of the country have been a most Important asset, to the industrial world. While there is a temporary scarcity of work in some quarters in the North, where more than 600,000 Negroes have mi grated, there is a demand for labor in the South. While Southerners are making all .sorts 6f " Inducements to start a flow of migration back South, not two per cent of those who have come North have returned, or have the inclination to do so. The American Federation of Lf';or is seeking to organize the Negro in avenues of employment both North and South, and while some look on the motives with suspicion, others are accepting the plan as the greatest opportunity for industrial justice. That the American Negro will never again be reduced to the limited lines of eni) loyment In which he was held prior .o the war. Is being attested by both whites and Race leaders everjrvhre. One leading Netro .business man re marked with reference to the pro posed conference: "If we are not officially Invited, hundreds of us )! be tl.jre anyhow to iind out the reanon why."

The day had been an eremoly busy one the operating rooms were opened promptly at 7:30 a. m., ard every minute during the day until 7:30 t- operations were be ing performed. A very great variety of cases was on hand, somo of which were of unusual interest and rarity. Then wore cases present that are encountered only at infrequent Inter vals. Twenty-four operations were performed during the day, and it is very probable that on no othTT oc casion has there been such an aggre gation of Negro surgeons of. ability with such an accompanying variety of cases. ' The Clinic opened up on Thursday night, April 3rd. During the entire Clinic thirty-three operations were performed the great majority of them majors.

Three- diff erent occasions brought together this body of men, including one woman physician: First, the meeting of the Alabama Medical, Dental and Phar maceutical Association, which con tinued from April 1st to 3rd; then the opening of the Second Annual Meeting of the John A. Andrew Clin ical Society; and the Eighth Annual Clinic of the John A. Andrew Mem orial Hospital. ' On Thursday night a public meet ing was held in the Institute Chapel, where about two thousand people were assembled to witness the pro gram conducted by these seventy Negro professional men. The sub ject, "Tuberculosis Among the Ne groes, and What the Negro Physici ans are Doing to- Combat It," was thoroughly discussed from a number of angles by a large number of the physicians and surgeons and dentists who gave from three to five minute talks; also other health conditions of the race, including suggestions for improvement The veneral dis ease situation as it affects the Ne gro race was also discussed. A paper was read by the Medical Director of the John A. Andrew Memorial Hospital, In which he gave some interesting statistics on the work of the Hospital during the past five years. He stated that 6828 cases had been treated In the wards ot the Hospital ' during this period. with a total of 28 deaths; that ot this number S78 had received sur gical operations " with only eight deaths; that durin?r the recent epl- Uemic, at rCJUitk. . at . lulluoaa.- were treated with no deaths, and 32 cases of , pneumonia with one death. He also stated that slnoe the Nurses' Training School was founded, 127 nurses had been graduated and sent out, and that they are doing insti tutional work as heads or small hos pitals and private sanitariums in a number of towns and cities In differ ent parts of the South; as far North as Indianapolis, Ind., and, that a number of the graduates were en gaged in Public Health Nursing, un der the United States Public Health Service in Little Rock, Arkansas; Columbia, South Carolina; Colum bus and Macon, Georgia, and some other places, also that others had been engaged in Cleveland, Ohio; Birmingham and Montgomery, Ala.

It is common to see, in some localities, saloons oc cupying all four corners of the street. What will become of this property it is difficult to say.
