NEGROES HAVE HIGH
PERCENT OF U. S.
WASHINGTON - A census of
Federal employes shows that the
percentage of Negroes in govern
ment compares favorably with the
Negro population ratio.
The Negro Federal employes,
however, are concentrated in the
lowest third of the salary grades.
The census totals also conceal
the spottiness of Federal job
opportunity. One agency, uniden
tified by name or size, had until
recently no Negro employes.
In Federal establishments in
some Southern cities the percen
tage of Negro employes is ex
tremely low. In some Northern
cities their Federal employment
rate far exceeds the average.
The census was conducted by
the President’s Committee on
Equal Employment Opportunity.

AFRICAN ART AT
The art of Africa is the sub
ject of a new permanent exhibit
recently opened at the Heard
Museum, 22 E, Monte Vista.
Thomas Cain, museum cura
tor, said the new exhibit covers
the entire continent of Africa.
It was put together with do
nations and loans in addition
to the museum’s own collection.
Many of the displays in the
exhibit reflect African Negro art
which has had much influence
on modern European and Ameri
can art, said Cain.
"Yet for years (African Negro
art) remained unrecognized,col
lected only as curios,” he added.
The African art exhibit can be
seen during the regular museum

from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sundays.
