A NEWS SERVICE FOR MISSISSIPPI NEGROES Published Weekly at Jackson, Mississippi 110 East Monument Street - Phone 5-4384 WILLIE J. MILLER _ PublisherTOwner SARAH M. HARVEY_Editor WILLIAM HARVEY_Circulation SUBSCRIPTION RATES 6 MONTHS - $2.50 1 YEAR - $4.00 TWO YEARS - $7.00 THE SERIOUSNESS OF THE RAPE CASES By James A. White Should the Supreme Court hand down a decision against segre gation in the public schools; and most people believe it will; some fanatic could call attention to the many rape cases and cause near panic between the races. Many well meaning white people could be led to falsely look upon integregation disdainfully. They would see, not a few Negro children who might have a better chance to better education and a better chance to be a good citizen, but only this beastly desire that all Negroes hate. If the present trend is continued, which has reported more rape cases in the last month and a half than in the previous year and a hajf, any Negro desiring rfo get better race relations would have two strikes on him before going to bat. For our future, we should take all precautions to stop such re ports. Here are some steps that may help, and you may think of others. 1. From the pulpit, fromthe speakers rostrum and in the street, all Negroes should remind and caution irresponsible ones against such acts. 2. If there are any persons guilty of such acts we should get them out of our midst. 3. We should use such means as we might have to refrain the white daily newspapers from printing stories of such cases until the suspect is caught. 4. We should urge our white friends to caution their irres ponsible against doing those things that will lead to such reports. 5. We should reassure our white friends and all white people that we believe that rape is indecent, inhuman, and uncivilized, and we are against it whether it is against white or black. NEGRO LEADERS SHOULD SUPPORT THE PROGRESSIVE LEAGUE Now is the time when all progressive thinking Negroes should come to the meetings of the Voter's League. When the amend ments that have been proposed are passed, it will be too late. If we could get all Negroes who could to qualify and vote, we would no longer need to asV for better schools, police protection, better job opportunities and the other things that go with first class citizenship. I am wondering how many Negro leaders will show up Tuesday night, April 20th at the Lynch St. C. M. E. church for the meeting. Let us busy ourselves with the things that will safeguard our future. We live in a golden time of opportunity, but the time is shorter than we think.

Livestock, Row Crops “Proper land-use and wise man agement are both essential to suc cessful hill farming,” declared Ed gar Johnson of near Oxford, whose 398.6 acre hill farm is geared to make every acre pay its way. In all he has now 130 acres in pine trees that are producing equal to one unit of pulp wood an acre each year. Last year he planted around 30 acres of cotton and for the past two years he has averaged a bale or more to the acre. One secret to the success of this former Agri cultural Extension Service County Agent, now turned farmer, is not depending on any one crop for the bulk of his farm income. Additional income is derived from the sale of surplus seed from crimson clover, oats, ladino, fescue and lespedeza. Another cash crop that he plans to add this year is sheep. • -o WATER RESOURCE STUDY “Waters of Cowetta” is the title of a new publication just released by the U. S.
