Fort Huaehuca has an up to date moving picture theatre with shows every evening, presenting j the best and latest of picturts.1 The price is fourteen cents and it can be paid on the following pay day. Dances are held frequently and the music is of the best. On Saturdays and holidays there is no duty other than the necessary guard and post fatigue. Saturday atfernoons are usually clear of duty. There are usually a few vacan cies in the Army for qualified men who possess musical talent. This includes both the skilled musicians and the man who, though musically inclined, has never pursued a course which would qualify him to play a special instrument. Army bands have always held their own with ! the best civilian organiztaions. Music exerts a powerful influence on the morale, and the War De partment in recognition of this fact strives to perfect each mili- j tary band by offering the best in ducements possible to worthy ap plicants. Athletics form a prominent part of the soldier's life. Every effort is made to provide whole some athletic amusements. Games of all kinds are arranged between the different organiztaions. The post baseball league is now in full bloom and will be the main past time throughout the summer months. The Post team made up of the best players in the regiment is being organized. This team will as in past years, play civili an teams from Tucson, Bisbee, No gales, Douglas, Phoenix and pos sibly clubs from Mexico. Football in the regiment has been at a standstill for a number of years but, there’s hope of bringing the sport to life this fall. The basketball league us ually opens in the regiment dur ing the month of January and craries a keen interest throughout the basketball season. Boxing is a wholesome sport in the regiment and has a- large number of followers.

Urban League Appeals For an Assistant 4 New York, July 6, (ANP)—The National Urban League made a spe cial appeal to Frank Persons, direc tor of the National Re-employment Service, for the appointment of a Negro executive assistant in his of fice in order to insure a fair chance for Negro workers under the re employment program of the Federal Government. “Unless this is done,” declared Mr, Hill, acting executive secretary of the League, “the prob abilities are that the Negro will suf fer from the same radical injustices which characterized the administra tion of the CWA in the past and the PWA in the present.” By specific examples Mr. Hill showed that Negro workers even now are being discriminated against on projects financed by Federal funds. “In New York City,” he pointed out—recently, four Negro workers refused jobs on a bridge construc tion project financed from Federal funds. Similar is the case of sixty two Negro painters of Omaha, Ne braska, who were classified as un “Keep Cool” Wash Suits Properly Laundered SEER-SUCKER. 50c LINEN AND PALM BEACH.75c 10% Discount Cash and Carry EMERSON LAUNDRY and ZORIC DRY CLEANERS 2324 North 24th Street WEbster 1029 j ; skilled workers, regardless of union affiliation and past experience, im proper classification of skilled work ers is common in nearly every state of the Union. Referrals of Negro technicians and other white collar employes is almost an impossibility in most employment services. “With rare exceptions, protests made by Negro workers who are discriminated against pass by un heeded, not because the National ad ministrators are different, but be cause these protests are shunted off or stifled before they reach the Na tional offices. It is for this reason that we have situations such as in Newark, N. J., where Negroes com prise 25 per cent of the unemployed working population, but protest that they have received only 6 per cent of the placements under various public works projects to which referrals were made through Reemployment Services. “Employment officials of New York City, Chicago, and other large cities have found that the tendency to discriminate unfairly against Ne gro workers is appreciably lessened by the appointment of well qualified Negroes to the Administration’s per sonnel as interviewer:, placement of ficers and the like. This policy should be encouraged by the Federal Government itself, and one of the surest means of stimulating the policy would be the appointment of a Negro as Assistant to the Direc tor of the National Reemployment Service, and the placement of several Negroes on the staff of the national administration.” The National Urban League is making a vigorous and sustained ef fort to place Negroes in every de partment of the new organizations crated by the Federal Government to further recovery. Similar appeals have been made to Miss Josephine Roche, recently appointd chairman of the executive committee of the Na tional Youth Administration and to Aubrey Williams, the executive dir ector of the National Youth Admin istration. It is the purpose of the Urban League to see that Negroes should b placed in adminstrative positions to protect the interests of the Negro wherever that interest is in danger. Card of Thanks We wish to thank our many friends for their kindness and sympathy al so for their beautiful floral offerings given at the death of our beloved wife and sister, Viola Oliver. Signed: W.

I Whites Look For Trouble and Find It New York City, July 6, (By the Associated Negro Press)—Vincent and William O’Connor, two young white men went out Monday morn ing in que.-t of a little excitement, which might be termed trouble, and their quest bore fruition when they accosted a group of young men of color.
