URBAN LEAGUE URGES SUP- i
PORT FOR WORKER’S
New York—CNA— “Negroes
should fear the Wagner Lewis
Social Insurance Bill, now pend

the National Urban League, at the
annual dinner of the New York
“It leaves out agricultural and
domestic workers,” Mr. Hill con
tinued, “which occupations are
followed by 65 per cent of all
Negro workers. Its provisions for
State con.rol of social insurance
is another defect, because this
might tend to discriminate against
Sou hern Negroes.”

which will provide adequate un
employment to all workers, both

Beginning December 15, 1934, an
Oregon county ed.tor kept track of the
number of envelopes he received con
taining publicity on different subjects.
On February 1, 1935, he had 102
stamped envelopes from private firms
and 112 government franked envel
Congressman Fish recently pointed
out that the cost to the taxpayers for
the franking privilege enjoyed by pub
lic officials, governmental depart
ments, commissions, “authorities,” etc.,
had jumped from -14,000,000 to $23,
000,000 the past year.
The stamp-free messages from gov
ernmental sources, received by this
editor in six weeks, exceeded all
stamped publicity he received from all
Franked material drained the tax
payers—stamped material maintained
the post office.
The people have learned that gov
ernment or private contracts to pay
obligations in gold can be repudiated
in the United States by Congress.
The people have seen the block re
turned to Germany, secret trials and
secret executions, with an ice cold
axe left embedded in the block to
stop the flow of blood.
