Signed Ruth. Answer: This writer believes that this question is based not on the employment of individuals but rather that the individual is con cerned with the apparent attitudes of the young people, and for that reason I answer the girls or rath er young women. I make this statement based on the discussions with other people, who point out that the club groups are made up largely of young women, secondly that women have demonstrated more of a tenacious spirit in pur suing community objectives, once they have been imbued with the spirit. The situation in Hartford, however, is improving very def iately on both ' sides. KEEPING PAGE (Locally and Elsewhere) iBilbo awakens! Bilbo is beein- ning to favor the Anti-Poll Tax Bill, for he now realizes what we have known for years: that the poll tax keeps more whites down than tNegroes.

It's all right to sacrifice to help others, but while we're pronosine loans of various nations, the House has just slashed the funds of the Department of the Interior.

"This business of learning to live together is the most import ant job of our generation," de clared Miss Penney. "(AmeriOa," she stated, "is divided into three groups and two kinds of folks, the ones' who destroy and . the ones who rebuild." After defining the different groups, Miss Penney told how the right group can and always does which will allow her to keep Egypt under surveillance. i And the EKK goes marching on! Though California and New York are slowing down the movements of the KKK, the nation has shown little interest in this Hitlerite growth. Possibly the similarity of the 'Nazi Party's rise to power has not been recognized, in the KEK's increasing movements. Maj. Gen. Butler B. Miltonber- ger, chief of the National Guard in the War Department, has an nounced a change in the Guard's policy toward segregation. The new policy calls for integration of Negro units into the Guards. With some encouragement from Con necticut's branch, it may expect more Negro, support. . As the FEPC bill pushes for ward in Massachusetts, Connecti cut voters still wait for similar steps to be taken in this" state. It will foe one of the determining fac tors for the coming election. The door was opened for the playing of more power politics when the Big Pour failed to reach any concrete agreements at the recent Big Four conference. The 'Kg Four may next resort to in dividual peace treaties and conflict ing agreements and thus the next war.

Through courses sponsored by the organization, the people of Philadelphia have learned that they must work in teamwork or fail. The training program has also taught the Phil adelphian what his neighbor is like; what it is like to be Catho lic in Protestant America; a brown in white America; Jewish in Christian America; and foreign, with slow plodding feet, in fast America. Beginning with no equipment, $500.00 and great trepidation, Fel lowship House had its initial open ing in an old fire house. It now has several houses and is steadily expanding, has a Dolly Library with dolls representing those in the nation who have contributed to the prosperity of America. Its two radio programs recently won three national citations. . A program is now being planned in which all nations will pass through the Arch in Philadelphia and meet on equal grounds. The Arch is to become the doorway of understanding and the key to real brotherly love. "Peace," stated Miss Penney in closing, "begins on our own street, and each of us have enough with in ourselves to build a bridge across hatred and prejudices and to bring man and God together. For although we have been asleep, we need not stap asleep. In fact it, is high time that we awaken out of our sleep." 'Miss E. Bailey was chairman of the luncheon. THE POSTAL SERVICE . By George Ware The United States Postal Ser vice is generally taken for grant ed by all citizens without giving a second thought as to how the department's jobs are done. From time to time I will write more de tails about the postal service that you should know. Through the efforts of Con gressman Herman P. Koppleman and Senator Thomas Hart, the bill .raising the pay of postal employ- ' i on- 1 the branches of the service profit ees uy ax per nourse increase, was1 passed. Negro workers in all ed a great deal and the raise will help to increase the National Eco nomic Standards of all groups, Price Control Explained The Young Womens' Progres sive Hour of the North End Com munity Center had for their spea ker Wednesday night, Mr. Wil liam Feine, who is the State Ex ecutive of Information on 0!PA. Mr. Peine spoke on "Problems that are Current in America To day." "Price control," he said, "is one of the main issues of the day and is price control worth saving, the big subject." In advocating the continuance of the OPA, Mr. Feine related examples where the lack, of price control has had decidedly averse effect o n the American public, such as the continual rise of com mercial rents and real estate. Price iControl," . stated Mr. Feine has it faults. But without it the prices will surely go up. The clause in rent leases is an open declaration for what will happen Sf price control is re moved." "If business men intend to lower or keep prices dofwn," went Mr. Feine, "there would not be so much controversy concern ing it. With price oomJfcrol, the consumer has always been able to count the cost and a stability has been given to both consumer and merchant that would have otherwise been lacking." "It has aided the taxpayer in as much as it controlled the price of war materials." It has slowed down neither production and em ployment which are at their high est level of any peace time year in the history of our country . '"After four years of demial,' said Mr. Feine, "shortages cannot be avoided. For the normal pro duction cannot supply the terrific demaid; so competition, if price control . was removed, would not force prices" down. Only after high prices had drawn off all the H quid money that is in America today would prices be lowered "Then," according to Mr. iFeine, "no one would ha"e any money anyway, businesses would collapse and another depression would set in.1 Mr. Feine explained the curreit shortages' thusly: lumber lack of heavy man power; meat bad distribution and increased demand; butter ' ' ii- no ceiling price on cream; more fluid milk - con sumed; (butter companies out- bidded foy cheese and ice cream,". Z a Tr,aw,, pu ship had been wrecked, and The OPA accept wage raises as the base for price rises' providing good faith has been shown by the company seeking the price rise. "And," promised, Mr. Feine, "just as soon as the Price Control Act is settled, meat and other items will be plentiful." ' , In closing, Mr. Fein paid trib ute to Marian Anderson, whom he stated, "has one of the warmest personalities he has ever known and who has been of invaluabUe assistance to him in his many OPA rallies.

COR. AVON ST. HARTFORD S, CONN. Telephone 7-6281 Bay State Passes FEPC Law After more than four years of agitation and two years of hard legislative effort, Massachusetts became the fourth state in tb Union to have a fair employment law this week. The final chapter in the most thrilling legislative fight in this state's recent history came Wed., when the last move of the House hate-mongera failed and the bill passed by the Senjffit on Monday, making it a criminal offense to (bar a man from a job because of his race or religion, was given to the Governor for his signature. He signed it Thursday. The fight for the anti-bias leg islation had an interesting history in this state. Agitation for such legislation was begun here even before it was started in New York State, first to adopt it. It came to little avail, however, until three years ago, when an unpaid com mission in which Seaton Manning of the .Boston Urban League ren dered a report on the prevalence of discrimination in this state. Even after this report and its attendant recommendations, how ever, onicial action, was slow to begin. Hearings were finally held in the State House at which larg-' er crowds were in attendance than, had been seen in that edifice since the days of Jjolition. Out of their agitation a bill finally reached the legislature, first of several to be offered. Last year a vote was held on the "bills'; the most sweeping one of them was staunchly supported by the Catholic Church, many inter racial groups, and literally hun dreds of civic, social and religious bodies. This vote was passed through a severe footballing in a number of Senate and House com mittees, finally passing the House. In the Senate a vote was held along strictly Party lines, the Re publican Speaker, Arthur W. Cool id pre, finally casting the vote which killed it. Cambridge Man Is MarineHero More than a month ago, Mrs. Den M. Freeman of Cambridge re ceived a wire from her son in the Merchant Marine. He told her that he was all right. BUT The wire didnt st&U that Ben, Jr., was the hero of one of the worst near-disasters of recent years; It didn't ' tell her that nearly 1,200 people owed their lives to her son. ' And ' didn't explain that when the ship Georgetown Victory ran aground on rocks off the coast of Ireland last April 30, and wag pounding to pieces while lying dangerously on its side, and the umuuxw&o WJ.fc7V.. w -- expected to be blown to bits' any moment from the terrific force of the ship's might boilers That it. Ron Ren who went down the steaming hatchways to the boiler-room and shut off the valves that saved twelve hundred lives, i Nor Ben's wire didn't say these things, but M. and Mrs. Freeman in their Fayerweather Street home have been mighty happy since they learned them. And they've got a great big welcome ready for Ben when be comes home in another couple of weeks.
