Court Upholds
Fight For Jobs
Washigton. April 16 (CNA) —
The United States Supreme Court
ruled last Monday that u labor dis
pute was created w'hen the New
Negro Alliance requested a Dis
trict of Columbia grocer chain/ to.
employ Negro clerks in stores in
Negro neighborhoods.
The court held that local Feder
al courts erred in enjoining mem
bers of the Alliance from picket
ing stores of the Sanitary Grocery
company in protest against its job
basis policy
The court held such an injunc
lion was prohibited under the Nor
ris-LaGuardia act outlawing Fed
eral arti-picketing injunctions in
labor dispute cases.
The ruling, it is believed here,
will serve tto spur the fight to
force private employers and public
utilities, in particular, to abandon
their traditional policy of barring
employment of Negroes except as
porters, ate.
New Layoffs in Auto
Hit Negro Workers
Detroit, April 16 (CNA)—New
mass lay-offs are sweeping over
the auto industry, adding to the
tens of thousands of auto workers
already unemployed.
The Ford Moltor Co., alone has
laid off at least 60,000 workers
since December 20.
Thousands of Negroes are em
ployed in the industry, most of
them in the Ford plants.
A recent check of the various
shops making up the River Rouge
plant revealed that no more than
16,000 workers are employed there
at present. Close to 90.000 workers
are employed during normal pro

Syphilis, T. B. Called
White Man's Disease
New York, April 16 (ANP)—In
a remarkable article appearing in
the April issue, “Survey Graphic,"
Dr. Thomas Parian, nationally
knomn authority on public health
and the Surgeon-General of the
United States, gives an interesting
insight into the magnitude of the
twin scourges of mankind—syphil
is and tuberculosis—and tells why
Negroes suffer such a high death
rate from these diseases. Dr. Par
ian’s article says in part:
“Syphilis is the white man’s dis-'
ease. Tuberculosis is the white
man’s disease. It is said by medical
historians that (the Negro slave
hrought malaria and the hook
worm to America. If he did, the
white man paid him back with us
urgy by giving him tuberculosis
and syphilis, from both of which
ho suffers more greatly than the
races originally the reservoir of
“Among the circumstances con
tributing to his abnormally high
death rate from these and other
causes, not. the least is the fact
that the Negro is at the bottom of
the economic ladder. For, as among |
the third of the population known
to be ill-fed, ill-clothed and ill
housed, as a race North and South
—and especially in the rural South
— his house is the most miserable,
hi clothing the scantiest, his food
ration most out of balance.
“Add to proverty is ignorance.
For except in a few cities, public
school budgets, thin at the best—
and especially in the rural South— ■
are divided disproportionately be
tween the white and colored. Rare
lv has a Negro child the opportun
ity to go past the elementary
grades in the rural schools. Rarely
does a rural school offer him more
than a few months a year.
I he Negro can not climb over,
the barriers to his competency un
less he is physically sound to begin
with. Unless he is given the oppor
tunity for health, he can take pro
fitable advantage to mo other op
portunity. Not s a matter of char
ity, but as the expression of justice
and wisdom for all races concern
ed, public health must be the base 1
line of effort—the point of depar
ture for all successful programs of
