TI ■r m ~TTniiii|ii'ii B iiiiiiiiWM hi FOURTH YEAR, NO. 41 FRIDAY, MAY 4,1962 NO FOLLOW UP Within the past few weeks Rev. George B. Brooks obtained public attention with sev eral releases concerning NAACP investiga tions?. He was no doubt gratified to see his name and hear it mentioned in connection with so many cases. The memorandum from the welfare depart ment which carried the message of sending white women only to a certain electronic plant was exposed by Mr. Brooks , the president of the Maricopa County branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. The memorandum incident was reported by local news media in the valley and the complaint was sent to the President's Com mittee on Equal Employment Opportunity. Last week at the meeting of the Arizona State Welfare Board , the memorandum in cident was brought up for discussion and not a single representative from the NAACP was present. I was the only Negro present after Dr. David M. Solomon, board member, was called to the hospital. Why all the furor? Surely just a follow up of the incident would prove that the case is pertinent. Perhaps Rev. Brooks feels that sending a complaint to Washington , D. C. is sufficient. More could be accomplished if there was a local and more inclusive action could be used to study and solve many of our problems. There is little to be gained in announcing an injustice if nothing is done on the local level to rectify it. ARIZONA STATE WELFARE BOARD MEETS \ ■ '--i.MF ft U V'---' Mr. jlHEte k jhu hh| m.
