'stycmg indication that the General
Convention of the Prober sant Episcopal
church meeting here will adopt a resol
ution urging prosage of a federal anti
lynching bill. On Wednesday Walter
White, secretary of the National As
sociaton for the Advancement of Col
ored People, conferred with the bishopj
and urged passage of a federal law
to cope with lynching. He pointed
to the dire economic plight of the
Negroes and charged that lynching
Ss the chief means of perpetuating
that condition. There had been no
groat outcry over the 17 lynching**
so far thit year, he said, because all
of the victims were Negroes. The
statdf will not or cannot stop lynch

Colored Voter In North Never In

Editor Declares
NEW YORK—The Republicans, De

have little or nothing to offer the Ne

forced to organize a Negro politieal
party in self-defense.
This is the conclusion of Oswald
Garrison Villard, noted liberal editor,
in an article entitled "The Plight of
I the Negro Voter,” in the November
Crista magazine, julH out He declar
I "It is perfectly obvious that the Ne
gro has nothing to gain from the

far as Mr. Roosevelt effort!* to re*

“If we look on the other Bide, the
Republicans have absolutely nothing

I’they will be willing to make all sorts
of campaign and platform promise* to
I the Negro, ju t as they have in the
past, and then fail to live up to them
i —al»o precisely as they have in the
I past.
“As for the Socialist party, that ife
beyond doubt entirely friendly to the
Negro, and wholly without race pre
judice- But the situation of the Se
l cialist party is obviously hopeless.
• “As for the Communists, I know

Jn 1933, Alabama had on relief no
less than 30,000 agricultural workers
—a certain number of them prime ex
amplaj of that historically unfortu
nate individual, the share cropper
For these sufferers relief was accom
plishing nothing. More than half the
time the share cropper had no idea
what his previous burden of debt was
to his landlord, for the landlord kept
the only books there were. Most of
the relief monA." filtered through the
sl^re cropper as through a sieve,
found its way back to the landlord.

letter concludes, “the difficulties to

the dhare cropper’s entire crop by way
ng to supply a farmer with canned
goods lest he starve, 1.00 states the For
tune Magazine.
Thaddeus Holt, the State Relief Ad
ministrator in Alabama decided that
the time had come to try a brand
nerw sort of treatment for the econo
mic ills of the FERA’s agricultural re
lief clients, 60 per cent of which whom
were poor whiten, 40 per cent of
whom were Negroes- The drastic
srtep was taken early In 1934 on the
approval of Harry L- Hopkins, FERA
Administrator in Washington. The
State Relief Administrator put this
ultimatum up to the landlord^: either
take over your tenant as your relief
problem and feed him when he becomes
destitute, or else waive your claims
to his 1934 crap and let the tenant
farm for himself with the help of the
state and federal government.
Some landlords accepted this latter
alternative, whereupon the Relief Ad
ministration took a long l*ok at its
rolls and out of the lot selected 6,000
who seemed to give some promise of
mponding to treatment. Upon them
it then began its paternalistic expert
To the 6,000, the Relief Administra
tion now gave the equivalent of eight
months' relief all in one lump. This
included one steer, costing $20, feed
for the ateer, four and a half months'
supply of food, plus seed, fertilizer,
tools and clothing. The value of all
this comes to an average of $91. It
was a loan to the share cropper; ha
signed a note and the relief organiza
tion tok a mortgage on his crop. The
share cropper remained a mortgage,
but with this very mportant difference
—his creditor was now the govern
ment, not a private individual- When
the share cropper signed his note, he
became technically no longer a relief
Now it hft». always been the conten
tion of the landlords who operate un
der the feudal share-crop system that
the share cropper is perpetually bank
rupt because he is either a no-good
poor white, or a lazy shiftless Negro.
The goverment found only 200 o
the 6,000, because of deaths, sickness
and other such unforseen exigencies
failed to make good, and pay back.
The two following examples picked
at random from the lot tell the story
generally, which was typical of the
majoriSy in this first 6,000:

Next year these plans will go fur

J amount of federal money laid out in
workrelief projects to create these
houses will be some $200 a unit- The
farmer will not get his house free.
The government will select only the
most promising risks and will take
crops and labor in payment for It.
This program has two more years
