SOUTHERN Christian Institute A College of Christian Culture Educationally Efficient Spiritually Sincere Chartered 1875 1=-=1 Urges Negroes To Buy War Bonds And Stamps irp'T.m."inn.—. Thomas Earl Porter In my job as advertising manager of this paper, I have had a number of occasions to 'Visit many of the mills I factories, lumber yards and other bus | iness enterprises where negroes are | employed in large numbers and it | was during a recent visit to the Ve | neer and lumber Company, Inc., Na tchez, Miss., that my attention was called to the fact that Negroes too should be encouraged to buy war bon ds and stamps, should be encouraged and urged not only to buy the bonds and stamps, but to keep them until their maturity. It is our patrotic duty to put ev ery amount possible into the buying of War Bonds and Stamps. Lincoln said, A house divided against itself cannot stand. Therefore if we are’nt willing to buy War Saving Bonds and stamps, we are showing a di vision of spirit, an unwillingness to cooperate in the hour of the greatest undergone; and above all a lack of the progressive and industrious spi rit that is so evident in other groups that makes them realize that the buy ing of war bondh and stamps, not only keep our boys flying, our tanks rol ling, our armies marching and fight ing but it also assures us as indivi duals and as a race of being able to take our place in the economic aff airs of our country. xAs Negroes, we have much to lose if this war is not won. I will admit that perhaps things have not in the past gone as pleasantly as possible as we would have derired them to go but as the greatest of all books tell us that If the salt has lost its sav ing power, it is good for nothing but to be casted out, and if any colored for Burial Protection. The Mississippi is one among the best papers to read I am sending gre etings to all of my readers and am asking that you continue to read this great paper. Rev. A. Thomas,.

For more than 75 years, Negroes here in America have enjoyed a fre edom that no other minority group anywhere else in the world enjoys and we intend to continue enjoying these rights to think and speak as we like, attend the church of our choice, hold up our heads as free men and women. But this condition will not continue to exist for us or for any of this country, unless we all get right into theis fight and do our utmost its going to take money, billions of dol lars of it and our buying of Stamps and Bonds will enable each of us to take a direct part in building the de fenses of our country, while at the same time investing our money sou ndly, safely and profitably. And in closing I wish to give you for consideration the excerpts from a radio address by the president of the United States, April 30, 1941. In this time of national peril, what we all must realize is that the Uni ted States Government is you and I and all the other families next door all the way across the country and back again. It is one great partner ship. Fellow Americans, I ask you to demonstrate again your faith in A merica by joining me in investing in the new Defense Savings Bonds, Negroes Furnishing Food For War Front In an address before the National Poultry, Butter and Egg Association in Chicago last week, Tom G. Stitts chief of the dairy and Poultry bra nch of the Department’s Agricultu ral Marketing Administration, poin ted out that the Russian Army is receiving dried eggs, powdered milk and canned meats produced by Am erican farmers; the same ting is true of the Nnited Nations soldiers in E gypt, Australia and other parts of the world. American farmers, white and col ored alike must feel proud that they are able to produce foods to help keep the world free. Milk cows of Negro farmers in Georgia and Texas, hens of Negro farmers in Mississippi, Virginia and other states are play ing their part in the war effort.
