Southern Division Of Nurses Meet Tuskegee Institute, Ala , Feb. 1 —That Negro nurses will not re ceive the professional recognition and practice that their training and potential social influence war rant until the death knell is sound ed on the current notion that “my daughter can not get her school work so she is going off to take nurse training", was the opinion expressed by Estelle Maseey, Rid dle, in addressing the second an nual meeting of the Southern Division of Negro Nurses in ses sion here Wednesday and Thurs day. Dr. Frederick Douglas Patterson addressed the convention and point ed out the function of a nurse. Referring to the “broader aspects of all professions, “Dr. Patterson declared that, “that we first must render efficient service and to do this we must have received the best possible training. All who deal with humanity must think in terms of humanity. In other words we must be aware of our commun ity situations. "The extent to which we appre ciate in a broad way the economic, social and religious conditions will determine our ability to render a more capable service, said the ed ucator. “We must remember that the Negro is a member of our na tional economy. That he is defin itely a minority group and as such has problems peculiarly his own. And if the Negro is to be helped all groups must band together for his fundamental betterment.” Other speakers outlined the nec essity of a larger number of young girls taking up the profession of nursing but emphasized the need of receiving training in schools that are recognized, including Tuakegee Institute, Hubbard Hos pital nt Nashville, Freedmen’s Hospital, Washington, and Provi dent Hospital, Chicago. Among the important addresses delivered during the day sesion. wore: "The Responsibility of the Nursing School to the Personnel” by Dr. Eugene II- Dibble, Jr., di rector of the John A- Andrew Hos pital, Tuekegee. “The Responsibil ity of the Staff and Student to the Nursing School” by Miss Allouise Jaxsn, assistant superintendent of nurses at the John A- Andrew hos pital. "Rural Public Nursing” by Mrs. Beatrice J. Holmes, Jackson, Miss., and "Trends In Public Health” by Miss Mary D. Osborue associate director of maternal and child hygiene and public health nursing of the Mississippi State Board of Health.* School Teacher Wins $250 For Best Essay Cincinnati, Ohio, Feb. 1—Mrs. Laura Knight Turner, 28, a teach er in the Jackson school, Fifth near Mound streets, here has just won the first prizee of $250 for the best essay on "The Teaching of Modem History and Current Events,” offered by the magazine, "Current Events.” Mrs. Turner is a descedant of Cincinnati’s first colored preacher, the Rev. O B. Nickens- Her moth er, Mrs- Laura Knight, is assistant principal at the Jackson school. Mrs. Turner, was graduated from Woodward high school at 16, re ceived her A. B. degree at the uni versity of Cincinnati at 18, Mast er’s degree in English at 19, and later degrcees of Bachelor and Master of Education- Her 4-year old son, Darwin, reads and writes and recently returned with her from a European trip. The boy’s father, Darwin Turner, is a gradu ate in chemistry at the University of Cincinnati, and his grand-fath er ’.vos the first Negro to be grad uated from the University. In her essay Mrs- Turner wrote: “I am teaching current events this year because such subject mat ter is too vital to be ignored in the education of citizens for a democracy. I would as readily blindfolded my pupils in an art gallery, or stuff cotton in their ears during a symphony concert, as stifle their naural interest in present day affairs. “In a few years these boys and girls will be citizens, called upon to make momentous decisions and to vote on significant issues. How are they to develop sound judg ment and to be guided by sane, unbiased principles, if, during their formative years, they are given no opportunity to scrutinize the decisions of their elders In a situation free from prejudice?” White Texas Pol iticians Issue Race-Bait Sheet Houston, Tex., Feb. 1—(ANP) —Allen S. Shepherd, white haired “Negro hater” and political foe of President Roosevelt of the New Deal, has issued a vile publication here, holding Mrs. Roosevelt up to public scorn and contempt in an effort to brand the First Lady and the President as advocates of social equality for whites and blacks. Mr. Shepherd is president of the Texas Election Managers Associ ation and a member of the Harris County Democratic Executive Com mittee. He is responsible for the passage of the absurd resolution by the Texas Legislature in 1935 asking the Democratic party to bar Negroes from its elections. The resolution has been ignored by national officials of the party. The sheet published by Mr. Shep herd carries pictures of prominent Negroes in all sections of the country and numerous clippings from Negro papers to emphasize its contentions. Picturees of Robert L- Vann, Congressman Arthur W. Mitchell, Father Divine, Repree-ntatives Charles W- Anderson Jr-, of Ken tucky, William Pickens and For rester B. Washington, are carried in the local circular Mastheads of The Afro-Ameeri can and the Texas section of The Pittsburgh Courier are reproduced. The article reprinted from the Courier relates to the recent visit of Roscoe Dunjee, editor of tho Oklahoma City Black-Dispatch and William Pickens to Texas in the interest of the NAACP. According to reports, 20,000 copies of the paper were printed here last Saturday for Mr. Shep herd who announced in its columns that copies could be obtained at cost. It is similar to one printed In Atlanata by the Talmadge forc es. Governor Talmadge of Georgia and John Henry Kerby. a white Texas politician, have joined hands to fight Roosevelt. Texas Negroes, generally ac quainted with Mr. Shepherd and his tactics of Civil War days have taken his sheet with a grain of salt! They know he represents a by-gone era and that he is a pol itical die-hard. They also believe that he is attempting a fight on the New Deal as a revenue pro ducing medium, and Texas Ne groes pity a man with such a small soul who finds It necessary to spend his aged and declining years in formenting strife and racial hatred. The general opinion is that the efforts will prove a boomerang. They will teach the poor whites of Texas who think Negroes inferior that people of the character of the Roosevelts find Negroes of similiar high character worthy of association in public and civic matters. Transfusion Is Cause Of Fuss — Memphis, Tenn., Feb. 1—Wheth er or not Mrs. Joanna Irvin, ma ternity patient at (leneral Hos pital who pave birth to a child last week, yielded several cubic centimeters of her blood on trans fusion to another patient without her consent, was a moot question at the hospital early this week. The case came to light after rel atives of Mrs. Irvin has visited her and found her condition weaken ed. It is said that after the first transfusion, attendants returned for more and she protested saying she was too weak from the first loss No serious consequences are ex pected to result from the loss of blood as the patient’s condition is satisfactory, hopsital attaches an nounced. Superintendent Ward made an investigation of the affair Tuesday and announced that the transfusion was voluntary, and that she was “tapped” Saturday by an attendant that did not know she had previously given blood.” Evict 80 Folk In Tenant Union Re prisal In Term. Memphis, Tenn., Feb 1, (A. N. P.) Eighty men, women and children, members of 16 families spent three days on the side of the road near Earl, Ark., about 25 miles foin Memphis, with all their household goods piled in a ditch, after having been evicted from the plantation of C. II. Dibble for their activities and membership in the Southern Tenant Farmers Urt*on. The evicted ones finally were quartered in tents to protect them from the bitter cold, in Parkin, Ark. The planation own er, so news dispatches say, con tended that he paid them in full for what they earned dur ing the season, that all had money and that he got them off his place legally because they had become undesirable sharecroppers through creat ing agitation and unrest. Iferman I. Goldbergcr, attor ney for the share-croppers charges that Mr Dibble failed to properly settle with the tenants and that he 'illegally took their cotton under a trusteeship for the AAA at more than a cent a pound under the market price. Goldberger also charges that planters and officers are wag ing a' campaign of terrorism, breaking up peaceable assemb lies of union members, and that they shot down two Negroes in the road Thursday night without excuse. Neither w'as killed it was learned. The union has appealed to Governor Futrcll for an investi gation and the governor has promised to comply. Julian Barred From Re-Entry Into Country -- New York, Feb. 1, (A. N. P.) Because he had forgotten to get a visa to enter the country, Col. Ilubert Fauntleroy Julian, much publicized “Klack Eiagle of Harlem” was banned from the United States by a special board of inquiry on Ellis Island Thursday.

Railroad Union Offers Negroes Membership Strive To Curb Workers From Joining “Reds” Birmingham, Ala., Feb. 1, (A. N. P.) To combat the influence of communists among Negro railroad employees, intensified efforts to organize the group within the stan dard railroad unions wil be made during the next few months as one of the major objectives of the Regional Association of Mainten ance of Way Employes, accord ing to a decision reached unani mously at the four days session of the organization which closed here Thursday afternoon. The inroads being made by the "Reds” among the Negro employ ees, were cited and the main rea son for the susceptibility of the group was given as the inability of the Negro workers to join the unions in the South and to enjoy the same rights as are enjoyed by the whites of the same classifica tion. Speakers pointed out that "Negro workers are being influ enced by the communistic propa ganda being distributed among them, fostering equal opportunity They are not given equal oppor tunity by the unions that deny them membership. To stop this influence, we have got to stress the necessslty of permitting them to join the unions in all parts of the country and to accord them equal rights in these organiza tions Committees to carry out the pro gram of the organization of Ne gro employees were appointed and the campaign for members In the various organizations will be launched at once. The plan, accord ing to the edict of the convention, is to establish separate unions for Negroes, giving them tho privi lege of sending delegates to the Regional convention, which is held annually. if? & /? fd»* Y013 W**w t.ni c'.ffivtrit wt..i hair rtJwwfii.g poui. #» itoii ®kin iijiu&R i SWING PACK I*0Wi)l5 ’..
