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
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
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.
