YTOL. 31 — No. 50 SAT., FEBRUARY 4, 1950
Battling against resolute hate mongers and
other factions who would use any means to
an end to further racial strife among the
citizens of Chicago, and organizations that
openly have advocated that mythical “white
supremacy” program, the Negro has emerged;
.vith his head held high and without the stig
na of blood upon his hands.
Whenever people of color are obliged to
nove into dwellings that have been built, as
ifgned, or allotted to all citizens, regardless
>f color, there has been a tendency for hood
lums to set fires, break windows, over-turn
:ars driven by colored persons passing the
scene and in all ways conduct themselves in
such a manner that they, quite conceivably,
should be confined in a padded cell.
Recent racial disturbances on the far south
side and other localities will bear out our
;ontention that the hate system is being kept
dive and activated here in the city with the
dea in mind that the Xegro should be kept
n his place and not accorded his civil rights.
Therefore, we believe that we can point
.vith pride, the finger of tolerance, at the
act that we are not guilty of these petty
loings and have never conducted ourselves
n a matmer that we should be held account
ible for such outrages.
! For example: The Illinois School of Tech
lology has acquired land from 31st street to
55th street on State, Wabash and Michigan
ivenues, housing many hundreds of white
students and displacing many, many, Negro
esidents without the advent of racial clashes,
hey were accepted into the neighborhood
vith the good will and tolerance that should
be shown by other factions. To our know
edge there has been no display of temper
br subversive action by any group or per
sons at this innovation to date.
Also there is. in this neighborhood, the De
Lasalle school at 35th and Wabash avenue,
with very few Negro students, that holds it’s
athletic contests and attend their classes
without fear of racial reprisals or bodily
harm. Could we go into the white districts
and do this without being afraid of resent
ment and tension? Yes, we feel that the
Negro is the most tolerant person on earth.
He is liberal and all forgiving for the de
grading things that he has suffreed and is
suffering today. He is not one to go out of
his way to cause strife and ill feeling among
his fellowmen, no matter what the motive
might be. In the sight of the Almighty God,
we believe that we. the oppressed, are the
most tolerant.

The National Presidents of four Veterans Auxiliaries are giving enthusiastic support to the country
wide movement urging veterans to make wise use of their NSLI dividend checks. Pictured above are
the respective Commanders, 1 to r, Mrs. Donat F. Monaco, Ladies Auxiliary to the Veterans of Foreign
Wars; Mrs. Anna R. Abelow, National Ladies Auxiliary, Jewish War Veterans; Mrs. Evelyn Lauritson,
AMVETS Auxiliary; Mrs. Norman L. Sheehe, American Legion Auxiliary.
These Presidents express the interest of women in this huge disbursement, many of whom plan to use
some of the dividend money for immediate necessities and then invest the balance in U. S. Savings
Bonds. They endorse the Savings Bonds theme “Use it Wisely.”

New Engine Works Under Water,*Toe

The new $3,500,000 Reo Gold Comet gasoline engine can do more
than pull a truck fast —it’s not afraid of water, either. The photos
above show three stages in an unusual water test conductecHn the Com-j
pany’s plant. While' running, the engine was completely submerged in
a six-foot tank of water, shut ofF while below the surface, and started
again, several times. Air intake and exhaust pipes were the only parts
above water level. Reo engineers report that the engine ran under
water at speeds ranging from 1,000 to 2,000 revolutions per minute.^
The engine was equipped with aircraft-type, waterproof i;park plugs,'
and waterproofed distributor, generator and starter.

Anti-Histamine Cold Tablets
Help Workers Check Absences
A simple plan by which local industry can help employees stop costly
winter colds as easily as they stop summer heat fatigue with salt
tablets is today in operation in various parts of the country.
Known as the Inhiston Cold Control Plan, it is suitable no^ only for
Industries with large numbers of employees and complete medical fac
ilities, but can also be used in small operations like stores and offices.
■Grocery Employee* Try "Stop Cold" Pill*. •«
r or example, m x^ew «iersey,
Kings supermarkets—not a king
size industrial operation—have
installed the plan in 20 stores,
covering 340 employees. The
stores advertise that “Kings em
ployees are guarded against
colds” as a community health
Here’s how it works. A 1,000
tablet dispenser goes on the wall
at a drinking fountain. At first
sign of a cold, an employee twists
the dial on the bottom of the dis
penser, and with each twist an
Inhiston 10-milligram anti-hista
mine tablet drops out. A con
tainer of paper cups, each bear
ing directions for dosage, starts
treatment with the first drink
of water.
Research shows anti-hista
mines stop 7C to 90 colds in 100
from developing if taken quickly.
By plans like this, workers and
companies stand to save a good
part of the $2 billion colds cost
« us annually. §

Fashion Flip: Paris
Shows American Idea
Tradition has been reversed and
Paris is showing fashions influenced
by America.
The Pierre Balmain midwinter
collection featured yards of lingerie
and Schiffli embroidery frills in
trims made possible, the designer
said, by a new American product
known as perma starch he discov
ered on a recent trip te the U.S. The
new synthetic starch imparts a fin
ish to organdie and other types of
cottons and embroideries used for
lingerie frills, which remains
through eight to fifteen launderings.
All lingerie trims shown were treat
ed with it. Lingerie and Schiffli em
broidery trims were featured on
black satin and mohre dresses, on
£avy tailored suits and even on
black tweed coats. Lingerie hats
were another highlight of the show.

It was no ordinary person who
out and penned the following
“Twas mercy brought me from
my pagan land,
Taught my benighted soul to un
That there's a Giod, that there’s
a savior, too,
Who died for me through love
I never knew ”
Phillis Wheatley, a slave girl,
wrote thee and many other tren
chant lines.
The Story of Phillis Wheatley
by Sl.irley Graham is a welcome
piece of literature for the peru
sal, study and absorption of the
youths and adults of this age.
For several centuries the dis
tinguished things done by Ne
groes have been kept in the
background — hidden in the cel
lari', so to speak. But, alas, the
searchlight of truth is being
swiftly turned upon the noble
things that have been done by
Negroes down through the ages,
and Shirley Graham has demon
strated to the world that she is
one of the noblest of this group
of searchlight bearers.
The Story of Phillis Wheatley
by Miss Graham is, we believe,
the best that could be produced,
taking under consideration the
scarcity of material concerning
her nowr in existence- Yet, this
biography, in my humble opin
ion, will heceforth be the classic
in Phillis Wheatley literature.

New X-Ray Equipment For Small Hospitals
_— .. ■ Tr« w >-!/l‘uifc^>,sa
MILWAUKEE, WIS.—A new “stepping stone” line of x-ray equip-'
Iment which can be constructed into more than 300 different types and
Imodels of x-ray machines has just been revealed here by General
'.Electric X-Ray Corporation in a preview demonstration. ■*«&**■* **•'
The new line was introduced to allow small hospitals and clinics
Ito up-grade their x-ray facilities one step at a time—as their patient
iload grows and their finances permit. v
Maxicon, as the new product is known, will make it possible for
even the smallest hospital, industrial medical department or clinic to
fuse x-ray as an aid in diagnosing human illnesses without heavy
initial investment. It also means it will be no longer necessary to
discard small equipment when patient load demands require larger
Apparatus. ••■'** *■ j
Two men, starting with a simple 4-legged x-ray table and tube
adequate for small hospital and clinic use, systematically added one
feature after another. In less than 15 minutes they ended up with a
fully outfitted x-ray machine designed for use in large institutions
and private radiological offices. This was done with parts from a dis-j
assembled unit as they came out of their packing crates. On equip
ment of earlier design, it often took two men several days to complete,
the assembly job.
