Randolph's Speech
(Continued from last week)
The Pullman Porters organized
in 1925, they were receiving $67.
50 a mouth and tips were uncer
tain. A grown up should not be
allowed to beg other grown up
people for a living. This organ
ization will say today and the por
ters will agree that they are not
making any tips because travel
ing is light. It was said before
the 1. L. of C., a “Good porter
will make good tips' . That is
not true. You have the same por
ters and they are not making any
tips, therefore we went out for
a definite wage. We were suc
cessful in getting two wage in
creases for the Pullman porters.
Cp to the first of the year we re
ceived an increase of over $5,000
this is something definite that the
organization has done for the
porters. The Company has cut
the wages $5.00 when the plan
was on for cutting wages. The
officials of the organization sent
a letter to the office of the Pull
man Company against the cutting
of wages of the Pullman Porters.
A letter was sent back that the
Pullman Porter would receive on
ly $5.()0 cut and other workers re
ceived a 10 per cent cut, you can
see the Brotherhood of Sleeping
Car Porters saved the Porters
$2.50. In addition to this tin
porter is working nearly 400
hours a month. Since 1929 some
three hundred porters have been
furloughed, if they had 240 hours
basis not one would have been
furlough, that is the reason we are
making this visit. There is no
doubt that our organization will
win this case. We also want
some definite sleeping hours for
the Pullman Porters. They are
supposed to have three hours, are
supposed to watch the cars to
prevent losses, they are only wor
kers who are supposed to he a
sleep and awake at the same time.
Tn addition to this, the organiz
ation is seeking to protect senior
ity, for instance if one porter has
worked 5 years and another 4j
years, he has a righ‘ to bump tin
4 year man, but if the Supt. does
not like the color of the eyes of
the 5 year man. he cannot bump |
the other, the matter is entirely
in the hands of the Supt. We
are trying to take same out of the
hands of the Supt. so that the or
ganization can h indie and settle
this question. Another step is
the Company has an organization
known as the Company's
formed by the Company
composed of the employees hut
for the benefit of the Company.
It has three committees, known
as the Local Grievance Commit
tee. Zone-and Industrial re
lations Board. When you have
a grievance it goes before this
committee. When there has been
a loss the porter has a slip he re
ports to the Supt. giving the full
details of the case. The Supt. in
turn does not take the Porters re
port. the porter has a grievance.
Perhaps he is given time off. He
receives a slip reports it to this
local Grievance Committee, the
same Supt.. who has just fired
him is on the board, it is under
stood that this Supt. is not going i
to take this man back. He is go-j
ing to stick to his statement. If j
he should reconsider he would not
have a job very long. The Coai
pany has employees who are por
ters working in its behalf, when
these conventions are held, they
are given cigars, send them to s
theatre, and a big dinner. They
do this to make them feel that the
Pullman Company, is their
when they get them in this sSft*
of mind give them something
sign ou the dotted line. Here
they sign, not knowing what it
is. in most instances, it is against
them. This organization will not
die, hut if all porters pass, then
the organization will pass. L be
lieve in honesty, we are not re
ceiving pay from this work, the
organizers over the country are
doing this for the betterment of
i the conditions among the porters.
We have an injunction which will
! come up in October, as before set
forth and we are sure the Bro
therhood of Sleeping Car Porters
will not lose. WE must stand by
our organization, he honest and
courageous unless you have the
courage to do so we cannot win.
Now this organization is engaged
in a struggle, needing $15,000.00
to finance this case. We are going
to the front and we are going to
the porters for this money. They
have to pay it themselves. T can’t
want Rockefeller to pay for it. If
i they want freedom they must pay
' for it themselves.
, '
Out of the night that covers me,
hlaek as a pit from pole to pole,
I think whatever gods may be
have conquered soul in fell clutch.
1 forestand I hold my wits nor
around on the bludgeonings of
My head is bloody but unbowed
This place of wrafts and tears
looms bttt the great flower
of the shade and yet.
In spite of the menace of the
I stand. I still stand unafraid.
It matters not how stout the gate,
IIow charged with punishments
I am the master of my fleet,
T am the captain of my soul.
That is the spirit of the Broth
erhood of Sleeping Car Porters.
New York, (CNS) Does the
name “Massie” bring luck to ac
cused lynchers? «Does tragedy
stalk the footsteps of actors nam
ed “Samuel Davis?” Is luck,
lawlessness, tragedy determined
bv name? The freeing of the
fourth “Massie” after trial for
lynching and the sudden death of
the third actor named “Samuel
Davis” leads to such speculation.
What's in a name?
m nawan two months ago, a
sailor named Massie admitted
murdering a brown man whose
guilt of any crime had not been
established in court. The self
confessed lyncher was convicted,
served one hour and after a few
weeks vacation in which he made
a triumphant tour of the United
States, returned to duty in the
United States Navy. The world
thought sailor Massie of Kentucky
was lucky.
A few days ago, just across the
river from Lieut. Massie's home
state, three more of the Massie
clan gained their freedom after
standing trial for lynching a Ne
gro. They admitted participation
in the jail-breaking and abduction
of the young ehauffeur, who was
found dead in the Ohio river, with
his neck broken, but denied kill
ing him. The dead brown man.
Luke Murray had not been found
guilty of any misdemeanor by any
court. Three other white men
were tried with the Massies by a
white jury.
Their luck in gaining their free
dom after participation in lawless
activities will be further tried,
however, as these Massies along
with their three co-defendants,
face new charges of jail-breaking
and abduction in the same c&se.
I [hiring their recent trial t.heir at
torney admitted that they batter
ed down the door of the jail and
abduct kJ the colored youth,
claiming that they intended tak
ing him across into Kentucky.
They denied that they were res
ponsible for his resulting death.
And so one speculates. “Is
there anything in a name?'' Does
fate intend for persons named
Massie to be lawless, participate
in activities which result in death
to brown men, and regain their
freedom after trial?
Similarly theatrical circles won
der if the name “Samuel Davis“
hasn't some sort of a jinx on it
for colored actors, the third per
former by that name having been
the victim of tragedy and sudden
death recently.
The first Samuel Davis died last
fall in an automobile accident in
Indianapolis, where he was play
ing the role of Gabriel in “Green
Pastures'’. The second leaped
from the roof of the apartment
house at 409 Edgecombe Avenue,
where he made his home, leaving
a note stating there is nothing
more in life. This Samuel Davis,
a well known actor had played in
“Shuffle Along” and the Keith
Orpheum Circuit.
A few days later the third Sam
uel Davis, died suddenly in Sara
toga Springs where he operated a
popular night club. He was well
known in the theatrical world
and was one of New York’s most
popular showmen.
Around the “Tree of Hope”
performers gather and discuss the
fates of their three “Samuel Dav
is” friends, and the Davises and
the Samuels aren’t looking any
too bright as they wonder if there j
is anything in a name.
