Doc F. Benson Publisher and Editor Negro Voters Want More Than Janilorships Reports coming from Arizona’s larger centers of pop ulation confirm local rumors that the state’s Negro voters Tesent the deal, or lack of deal, they have received from Governor Osborn. It has been observed and commented upon that Governor Osborn takes the Negro vote for granted and is oblivious of any obligation to include them in his thinking. He has never counted them in on any thing. He has simply ignored them which is tantamount to counting them out, although he has had their undivided and constant support in every campaign. Year after year, the governor’s Negro supporters have hoped that he would give them some encouragement. They would have been happy to have received even an empty gesture of some sort. They have been disappointed and are sensitive to the fact that Arizona has not kept pace with other states in the matter of integrating its Negro citizens into the body politic. Arizona’s four fold increase in Negro popu lation during and since the war gives the Negro a political potential that can not be ignored. Included in this increase are many Negroes of ability. These newcomers have been quick to observe Arizona’s backwardness about which the are having a lot to say. They will not be satisfied with a smile, a pat-on-the-back and a janitorship at the Capitol. They want to be regular citizens and accorded the recognition to which their ability and competency en titles them. The Republicans return to the state’s politi cal arena offers possibilities that Negroes and many whites have been denied under the one party system. It can be easily possible that the one party system is on its way out. By his failure to properly evaluate the Negro voter, Gov ernor Osborn has made the Negro highly susceptible to the present blandishments of the Republicans.

Who said it doesn’t rain in the “Valley of the Sun”?—the biggest scoop of the week is the record breaking rain—and still not over. Many high school “kids” have not witnessed such a long continuous drizzle in Phoenix before, accord ing to the record. I hope it does not stop our fight for the Colorado River Water. And, while we are on the subject of water, why not suggest that the 3 cent increase in street car fare be ear marked and set aside to buy row boats to replace street cars on rainy days. (If we have any more). Who said “Go west, young man?” Well it seems that advice is being well taken here of late, especially here in Phoenix —the much criti cized part of town, 4s really “go ing to town.” Everything is mov ing that way. With the comple tion of the $70,000 Elks home and the erecting of the Boys Club to be started soon we will have just about all of the big things, impor tant to our group, concentrated over there, which I think is grand, even if I am an East-sider. When the streets are paved, which has been approved and that area is taken into the city, which is con templated, we will look forward to a community comparable. to Los Angeles’ West side. Places of amusement is on the list of improements; the latest ad dition to PhoeniJc nite-spots is the American Legion “Dug-out” on East Jackson St., opened a couple of weeks ago by the Wallace Simp sons’ Post, —a clean up to date and well mannered place which is des tined to go places. Who said we wouldn’t ever get a break in the community? What do you think about Hadley Mur rell’s appointment? Not so bad, huh? A step forward. There have been other appointments in recent months which I will tell about next issue, some, maybe you don’t know about. But bear in mind things don’t “just happen”, so until next week when I’ll be bringing you some more city highlights. I’ll be “sueing” you.

SETTLE, Originator and Director of i "UIN'pS OVER JORDAN" Negro and White Together ~ Created Inspirational Choir WINGS OVER JORDAN, famed Negro spiritualist choir, owes its existence to two men, Reverend Glynn T. Settle, pastor of Cleve land’s Gethsemane Baptist Church, and Worth Kramer, who before entering the Navy, was program director of CBS station WGAR in Cleveland. Reverend Settle first took his church choir to Worth Kramer in 1937 and asked for an audition. After the program department had listened to the magnificent singing of traditional spirituals, Mr. Kra mer volunteered to direct the group and help prepare it for a regular Sunday morning spot on the Cleveland station. Going on the air for the first time on July 11, 1937, the choir, named WINGS OVER JORDAN, (after the words in a song sung by Reverend Settle’s mother), became a regular Sunday feature of WGAR for six months. In Janu ary 1938, Worth Kramer, who had given up his CBS job and was de voting all his time to the group, auditined WINGC OVER JOR DAN for the heads of CBS in New York. CBS immediately placed the chorus on a coast-to-coast net work where they have been heard for seven years by an audience of over 10,000,000 people, each Sun day. Every week, Sunday schools, families and individuals tune their radios to CBS to listen to the in spirational songs of faith so beau tifully interpreted by the 20 voice group. They have made personal appearances in nearly every state of the union and have donated time and money to all charitable institutions or religious causes in need of assistance. Reverend Settle, during the weekly 30 minute broadcasts, in troduces each number to be sung by telling a little of the history of that spiritual and during each broadcast also gives a five minute talk on the achievements of great American Negroes or of white Americans who have benefited the cause of interracial understanding and brotherhood. More than the talks, however, the music sung by WINGS OVER JORDAN, actually tells the story of the American Negro through music, feeling and depth of un derstanding—and the group itself is a living example of the great ness that has been built by people of two races through the efforts of the Negro, Reverend Settle and OVER ISO VETERANS ARE DECLARED INELIGIBLE FOR ON-JOB ALLOWANCES The recent policy announced by General Omar N Bradley with re spect to veterans receiving Read justment Allowances has resulted in 152 veterans being declared in- J eligible for allowances in Arizona, said Bruce Parkinson, Director of. the Unemployment Compensation Division of the Employment Secur ity Commission of Arizona, which is responsible for the administra tion of the Readjustment Allow- j ance program in Arizona. While readjustment allowances are intended to assist the veteran financially in his change from mili tary to civilian employment, the veteran is not entitled to receive such allowances unless he is active ly seeking work. Registration for work with the "“United States Em ployment Service is not sufficient to qualify the veteran to obtain allowances. He must produce evi dence that he is making efforts t of his own to secure employment, i Readjustment Allowances en- 1 courage the veteran to obatin em ployment since a job offers many rewards in addition to wages in ex- ! cess of the Readjustment Allow ance. Employment experience, work habits, development of skills and seniority are valuable assets acquired only on a job. The sooner a veteran goes to work the earlier he will be able to meet the quafi fications of experience and skill required by employers. A survey is being conducted now in the Employment Security Com mission offices throughout the State of all veterans who have re ceived allowance for 20 or more weeks to determine what efforts they themselves are making to get jobs. Readjustment Allowances are a poor substitute for a job. However, the white former of WINGS OVER JORDAN, Worth Kramer.

In order for a veteran to be eli gible tb receive Readjustment Al lowance, he must be out of work through no fault of his own, be available for work, able to work and willing to work. In Arizona, the number of veter ans applying for Readjustment Al lowance is increasing, due princi pally to the immigration of veter ans from other parts of the coun try. Many of these veterans had no work experience prior to entering the armed forces or had acquired skills in industries that do not ex ist in Arizona. Consequently, veter ans must use initiative in locating a job to make use of the skills and abilities they have developed to gain experience for the time when job opportunities are fewer than they are now. One kind of lizard can shed its tail, when in danger, and slither away leaving the tail to wriggle for a short time, according to the Encyclopaedia Britannica. The wriggling tail often distracts pur suers until the lizard has reached safety. A fraternal guild of the 12th century, the Grocers’ Livery Com pany, tried to restrict marriage of its members to daughters of guild men, according to the Encyclo paedia Britannica. The attempt failed, Britannica adds. It is GOOD CHILI We brag on it, try some and ; you will Brag too.
