HIT AND RUN
CARS TAKE
HUGE TOLL
There were 6010 Hit and Run
accidents in Chicago during 1949,
according to Traffic Chief Mi
chael J, Ahern. In these acci
dents 49 persons were killed and
832 persons were injured.
Traffic Division statistics re
vealed that, of the total number
of Hit and Run cases, Chicago
Police were able to clear up 2735
or 45,3 percent.
Commenting upon the Hit and
Run picture, Sergeant George W.
Jones, in charge of Hit and Run'
investigations, said, “We handle
anywhere from 450 to 500 cases
a month and we’re able to clear
up about 45 percent of them.
The rest generally remain un
solved because our office is not .
furnished with sufficient infor
mation to trace the violator.”
“This does not mean that we
neglect this type of case,” Sgt.
Jones added, “We have success
fully apprehended a number of
hit' and run drivers when we had
only meager evidence to start
with.” . (
For motorists and pedestrians
who see a Hit and Run accident,
Sgt. Jones offered these rules:
1. Call the Police immediate
ly and give them all details pos
sible
2. Get license number of car
(including State and year).
3. Get description of car (col
or, make, year, and model).
4. Get description and num
ber of occupants.
ENFORCEMENT I
OF F. E. P. C.
DEMANDED
An end to prevailing employ
ment discrimination against Ne
groes through enforcement of
the Chicago Fair Employment
Ordinance was demanded by
midwest UE leaders today in a
letter to Mayor Martin Kennel
ly, all members of the- City
council, and all officers and di
rectors of the powerful Chicago
Association of Commerce and
Industry, which represents 5,000
member firms.
Pointing to the fact that 40
percent of Chicago’s unemploy
ed are Negro, with a 10 percent
colored population, as compared
to 22 percent a year ago, the
letter was signed jointly by Er
Name New General
Storekeeper
John T. Harty was recently
appointed general storekeeper
for the CTA by General Mana
ger Walter J. McCarter. He
succeeds the late L-. J;. Dixon.
Harty had held the position of
assistant general storekeeper
since December 1944.
nest DeMaio, William D. Smith j
and Grant W. Oakes, president, I
vice president and secretary- I
11 of the United Electrical, Ra- j
treasurer respectively of District:
die & Miachine Wooers of
America (UE), largest union or
ganization in Chicago. Smith is
one' of the ranking progressive
Negro labor leaders of the na- ,
tionn. (
The communication charged
“wholesale, outrageous and con
tinuous violations of the letter
and spirit of the Chicago FEP
Ordinance which has been, in j I
theory, part of the law since j
1945.”
“This crisis,” the union leaders
declared, “is the practical result
of giving mere lip-service to the
needs of the people for a stable
and wholesome economy while
condoning the vicious everyday
practices of discrimination in
industry and commerce.”

This article is written to wake up the credit and pawn shop believers,
and to let them know that they are being mislead e^ery minute of th<
day. I have been, writing such articles and fighting for the people foi
the past twenty years. My specific aim is to let the public know that cre
dit and budget system are . against them.
The merchants of such businesses mislead you at the very start when
they have you put your signature on their paper. After the merchants
have once gotten your signature, then is the time they begin laughing at
you. Their faces change and they make life miserable for you. You work
hard in a factory to make that credit vulture happy, and he is working
hard to make you suffer. After the first week or t,wo they begin serving
garnishee notices on your employer if yru miss one or two payments*
Thousands of jobs are lost for this reason, because the employer becomes
annoyed at so many garnishees as it calls for extra bookkeeping.
Jobs are not easy to* get all the time, especially a good job, so you
should try to protect your job. If that credit man, who is (taking youtf
money, wanted to be homest with you he would tell you the evils of such
systems just as I am telling you.

dise, the highest grade tailoring and a perfect
