peculiar to them1 elves, received a
resounding swat this week at the
Medical Advi.-ory board of the
Daily Worker.
An Atlanta, Ga., white worker,
who evidently rid himself of this
anti-Negro fiction, sent the fol
lowing inquiry to the board:
‘ Can you tell me if there is any
difference between the composition
of the sweat of a Negro ard a
white man? I would be grateful if
you would give me this informa
