Beautifully bound, brightly il lustrated and chuek full of facts about famous Negro firsts, prom- leaders, important Negro accomplishments, informa tion on Civil Bights and laws pro tecting those rights, the directory will contain more than 200 pages with more than 10,000 listings yrid display advertising (some in color) of Negro business, profes sional. religious and social organi zations. It will also contain “greetings" advertisements from those organi zations outside the Negro com munity which have established a justification for inclusion on the basis of Negro representation, em ployment, sales force, agencies, etc. The efforts of the NAACP in lighting the courts, of the Con gress of Racial Equality (CORE) and the various other Negro or ganizations which have their own ways of attacking segregation and race hate in America, are all j well and good but will come to J naught in the end unless the Nc* I gro can in some way control and hold on to a larger percentage of the money he spends for goods and services, the publishers of the directory point out. According to recent survey fig tires, the American Negro spends 1 more than S2O billion a-year for these goods and services in the i r.s In Michigan alone, nearly a bil lion a year is siphoned off the Negro market, with Negro busi-1 nessman and Negro professionals getting only a mere pittance of ; this money. The publishers of the directory. iPhone TY 4 4682), believe that if i the Negro consumer is given a reliable and comprehensive guide to those business and professional ! concerns which offer goods and services on a reasonably competi tive basis, he will first shop with these firms before turning to those outside his community.

Unique Guide Aids Negro Travelers The inhospitality of the white South to the Negro traveler has been graphically reiterated through the recent attacks on the “freedom riders.” Although racial extremists arc located primarily in the Southern states, the Negro tourist is subject to rejection in all parts of the country. The 1961 '62 issue of GO —GUIDE TO PLEASANT MOTORING has been published to aid the Negro in traveling through or vacationing in any part of the country. Reluctant to travel, many Ne groes will either spend their en tire vacations at home, or return to the same place year after year. “GO” can open many vistas to the interested Negro traveler as it includes listings of hotels, motels, resorts and lodges, which are off the beaten path, as well as on the main highways. Also included arc little known skiing and hunting lodges. Listed are several hundred establishments selected for inclusion on the basis of quality of service and accom modations. a " bH^VHB?® 1 ?^|l mr B JBHLI U| ' - Platform guests in ine presen tation of the Honorable George A Padmore, Ambassador from Liberia at St. Stephen A M E. jL ’ \ ' ■ ■' ■' %4'v" 5-. «'v:- 8 MW i ..

Beneath the shadow of super bombs, caught in the clash of super powers, the Individual most often feels frustrated, insignificant. He is a grain of sand in history's hour glass. The sand moves, time runs out. lie is left helpless, impotent. Or is he? Are any of us so imprisoned by our fate? Only if we default. Only if we leave our fate to others: governments, statesmen,' scientists, committees, institutions. Only if wo do not care enough, or Know enough, to realize that these are valuable only as instruments of the public will. Only if we fail to see that freedom is not a gift, or peace the absence of war, and that neither Is the responsibility of the few? Freedom and peace are each a task, hard and demanding of all. They are especially demanding of a democracy because it is the exceptional society. It is ever under exceptional attack from those who would deny man's freedom by war or any means. To survive, a democracy must prove that it deserves to survive. Individuals must prove it, as they have in the past. Individuals have changed history and altered whole societies. Individual ideas have inspired the greatest sagas in the story of man. The problems of peace and war, of disarmament and survival, may loom as 3 uiurcu, itev.
