PINKHAM’S TABLETS __C Uterme Tome and Sedative for Women % BISHOPS URGED TO ENDOBSE ANTI LYNCHING BILL ATLANTIC CITY, N. J—There is '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 ing. he declared, and that while organ zatlons with a dotal membership of 39.203, 928 had endorsed the Costi gan—-Wagner billl, the active support | of the Protestant Episcopal Church wa'j sorely needed Among the bishops present at the ^conference were Theodore D- Bratton of Ml^asippi, Edwin A. Penick of North Carolina, George Craig Stewart of Illinois, Bhhop Green of Misssis sippi, Bishop Finlay f South Carolina, and otheit*. All seemed strongly in favor of a resolution condemning| lynching and ah*o favoring a fed cral law. *Tt is said that a number of these bishops will present the recolu tion to the Convention. Following Mr- White,s talk many questions! quetftionlt were asked ---■ NE6R0 MAY HAVE TO FORM OWN POLITICAL PARTY Colored Voter In North Never In Worse Qnandrv Than Today, Editor Declares NEW YORK—The Republicans, De mocrtts, SocialH^ and Communists have little or nothing to offer the Ne ! pro voter and the race may yet be 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 es: I "It is perfectly obvious that the Ne gro has nothing to gain from the ! Roosevelt Administration except in bo ( far as Mr. Roosevelt effort!* to re* ■ store prosperity may benefit all of j the people. “If we look on the other Bide, the Republicans have absolutely nothing | to offer anyone- £ have no doubt that 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 ‘ that their doctrines are in many as pects especially appealing tothe Ne 1 gro- Yet, if I were a Negro it would j be the last party for which £ should consider voting- Itjs.' leadership in the Unibed States is irtfignificant, almost beneath contempt. The Ruffians . themselves have no fath in it, and lit tie good opinion of it * I “It may possibly be that the time 1 will yet come when it will be neces ary to form a Negro party. But the time is not now.” The November isjsue contains also an article by Loren Miller, “Uncle Tom in Hollywood,” in which colored people are urged bo take some action against the characterizations of the race being broadcast to the World through the films by Hollywood pro ducer*.

FARMER MAKES GOOD FERA S PROGRAM 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. Time after time the latter took over ed labor.” “We appreciate fully,” the letter concludes, “the difficulties to be encountered and are doing all we can to overcome them.” debt”—and left the Relief Administra te partially liquidating his “past 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 ment 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 case 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: Stranded white farmer with wife and two children. Had been a relief case for more than a year- Unable to obtain credit or farm implements to earn a living. Advanced money by Alabama Re lief Administration to cover cost of steer, seed, feed, fertilizer, farming implements and subsistence- This has been paid back in full in work relief labor on public projects.

The FERA through the Ala bama Relief Administration will take over another 14,000 rural families and thui bring its total up to 20,000. It will be able to advance them the equ ivalent of $150. Out of this some $40. I will go as down payment to purchase | enough land from the landlord to give | the tenant a plot on which to build a four room house- The federal govern ment will get the house built for cash outlay of $9.60 That $9-60 is not a mistake in type setting. >3f this proves out and the State Relief Administration can get rural Alabama spinning again it will make genuine work-relief projects for | reveral thousand men out of felling j lumher on state land- The lumber will be finished in sawmills that, will , take as their pay part of the umber . itself. The hou«e will be built by car i penbeo* as part of the district relief - work program. It will not be paint I ed. The $9.60 will be spent for such ! necessities as hinges, nails, a door j lock, the window glrn-ji Probably the 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 to run. It is wide enough in scope to provide real rehabilitation. Admit tedly, the plan in rural Alabama has worked only as the result of close sup-, ervison over a group of underprivi-i lodged people- Remove the supervis ion now and the group drift hapless ly back to its old conditions.

The presentation was entitled “From Dixie to Broadway” and had Leigh Whipper as the narrator The program started with the first attempt of the Negro to produce entertaVn men and worked through until the prevent daly. This was the first time that anything of the sort has been done over a major qtatJon in the Ne.w York area. The first time that a Negro played before a Brohdway audience in any thing except a revue or as a bit play er, was in 1920 when Charles Gilpin made history in Eugene O’Neil’s “Em peror Jona !” There followed in CRIME CONFERENCE m NOT DISCUSS LYNCHING NEW YORK-It does not seem likely that lynching will be discussed at At torney General Cumming’s crime con ference in Washington in December. The National Association for the Ad vancement of Colored People wrote to Attorney General Cumings, on Oct. 9 ei Iking if the lynching evil would be on the agenda of the conference. Jo seph B- Keenan, assistant attamey general, has replied, “The program for the conference is not as yet complete. Obviously, it will be impossible to co ver all phi* *es of the crime problem in the short space of three days. No definite decision has been made with refei-ence to the subject of lynching.” According to offialaltf of the Asso ciation, the Department of Justice hod evinced no interest whatever in the wave of lynchings but has been ac tive in running down kidnappers.
