the universities and secondary

the Universities of Warsaw and

established and Jewish students

In the market places Jewish

forced to close because of boy

Legislator Outlines
Program For Race
Frankfort, Ky., Feb. 26, (C) In
a special statement to Calvin’s
Newspaper Service, Hon. Charles
W. Anderson, Jr., newly elected
representative in the Kentucky
Legislature from the 58th Dis
trict, Jefferson County, (Louis
ville), has outlined his program
for the race in his state. He says
in part:
“My first bill introduced in the
Kentucky Legislature was House
Bill 148, which provides that the
state pay the tnition of students
compelled to pursue professional
and graduate education at insti
tutions outside the state
“My second bill was to create
tho office of a Third Assistant
Commonwealth’s Attorney for the
City of Louisville- My purpose for
drafting this kind of bill was to
open the avenue for the future
possible appointment of a Negro
“My third bill relates to both
races. It provides that any teach
er having taught school for five
years within the state may marry
and retain her job.
“A fourth bill provides for the
state to pay the expenses neces
sary in the defense of persons
charged with felonies, who are un
able to employ counsel. A Pau
per’s bill, and especially helpful
to our race
"My whole program concerns
legislation where necessary to cre
ate or open avenues of employ
ment for our race; to give us bet
ter opportunities and abolish dis
crimination in the employment of
our race on state projects- Like
wise, I arn interested in progres
sive legislation irrespective of race
or those matters which will aid
the progress of Kentucky."
