Negroes finding new employ

Assn, works toward non-dis
criminatory hiring practhes
were urged to “keep those jobs
longer than am two weeks.
Rev. A. \V. Bishop, member
of the C-UIA executive board,
said the efforts of the C-UIA
would be largely lost if Negroes
getting jobs couldn't stick with
them for longer than t w o
Bishop, in a so-called “pep
talk'' Wednesday night urged
Negroes to develop good work
habits, including being on time
for work, and not constantly us
ing “excuses of being sick.
"If you can’t take the work,
go to the man and tell him
you're quitting, then give him
tv\ o weeks to find somebody else
to take your place. Don't just

Bishop charged that ADC is
a "disgraceful” way to make a
living and said that all young
people “should take it upon
themselves to get off ADC just
as soon as they are old enough
to get a job.”
Giving his pep talk at the
emergency meeting of the
C-UIA attended by about 200
people. Bishop also touched on
the area of opportunities in pub
lic accommodations.
•I se The Doors’
Bishop ui’ged local Negroes
to "get out and take advantage
of the doors which have been
opened to you.
“Don't just sit back and wait
for Negroes who happen to be
passing through to Use hotel and
restaurants now accepting Ne
gres. We can't just depend on
them to keep these doors open,
we've got to take it upon our
selves ’ Bishop said.
Bishop also pointed out that
Negroes should expect to pay
the regular prices for such ho
tel and restaurant services.
“You can't expect them tc
lower their rates or menu prices
just because of the color of your
skin. You've got to expect to
pay the same prices white peo
ple pay for the>e services." he
Bishop also urged Negroes
to “stop trying to use your race
as an excuse, because pretty
soon the color of your skin isn't
going to make any (inference
and you won't hav e anything to
hide behind.”
