Non Relief Famil ies
Found To Be Thrifty
New York, March 28 (ANP)—(
The majority of colored families
off relief here have managed to
remain financially independent be
cause of the combined factors of
steady work, good health, few
children, careful budgeting and
roomers, according to a study is
sued last week by the committee on
Negro welfare of the Welfare
The study, intended to show how
non-relief families have managed
to stay in that category, was based
on the records of 39 representative
families in Manhattan and Brook
lyn where the proportion of relief
cases is four times the city-wide
A “will to manage,” in the fami
lies which have avoided relief, was
emphasized in the report, but in
Cspite of this, the survey noted that
families had to rent out rooms to
supplement their meager incomes.
More than 50 per cent of the fami
lies studied were childless, and the
survey saw a close relation be
tween the size of family and their
ability to maintain financial in
“How socially desirable some of
these factors in solving community
problems is a question to be taken

studied was found to be $258 a

John L. Lewis
To Speak at
Negro Congress
Washington, March 25—National
Negro Congress leaders announc
ed last week that John L. Lewis,
militant leader of the Congi'tss for
Industrial Organizations will be
the prinicipal speaker at the open
ing session of the Congress to be
held at the United States Depart
ment of Labor Auditorium here Fri
day, April 6.
Recent statements by Mr. Lewis
at the Convention of the United
Mine Workers of America, of
which he is also president, at Col
umbus, Ohio, indicated clearly that
the labor leader was keenly aware
of the problems of the Negro peo
ple. His speech at the American
Youth Congress, in which he lash
ed out vigorously against the inac
I tion of the United States Depart
ment of Justice in the matter of
j poll taxes, has also served to bring
him to the fore as a champion of
three million disfranchised Negro
voters of the south.
Immediate response among Ne
I gro leaders here to the Congress’
announcement that Mr. Lewis
would speak was that his utteranc
j es before this representative gath
ering of leaders of Negro organiz
1 ations promises to mark a new e
poch in the relations between the
, Negro people and labor. Congress
j officials themselves greeted with
! high enthusiasm his acceptance of
their invitation. They announced
I that his speech and the presidential
address of A. Phillip Randolph,
j head of the Congress, would be

be heard by some five million peo

Congressman Mitchell Demands
Third Term of Pres. Roosevelt
Washington, March 28 (ANP) —
Declaring himself unreservedly in
favor of a thrid for President
Roosevelt, Congressman Arthur W.
Mitchell of Illinois* in an address
before the house Monday recited
a resume of the accomplishments
of the New Deal as far as Ne
groes are concerned and challenged
any other party to_ show tha,t it
had done as much.
Going down the line, Mr. Mitchell
enumerated the seven alphabetical
agencies which had contributed to
the Negroes welfare and “saved
them not only from starving, but
kept them living.” They were in
order, the WPA, PWA, CCC, FCA,
FSA, NYA, and the USHA.
Stating that some 300,000 Negro
families, representing 14 per cent
of the total on the WPA payrolls,
had been benefitted from the acts
of this organization, Congressman
Mitchell further lauded the New
Deal and cited figures from other
departments to prove his conten
He was interrupted in his speech
by a fellow representative who,
listening to Mitchell’s praise of
the Farm Credit administration,
wanted to know if Mr. Mitchell
would be willing to have this unit
put in the department of agricul
ture under the direction of Secre
tary Wallace.
Mr. Mitchell refused to answer
this pointed question and refused
to yield for further questioning.
However, at the end of his allotted
time, Hamilton Fish of New York
who had asked the Speaker of the
house for five minutes launched
into Mr. Mitchell and demanded to
know just how many unemployed
Negroes there were in spite of the
New Deal. Mr. Fish also asked, if
Mr. Mitchell knew of the suffer
ings of the Negroes in the South
under the New Deal administra
Turning to another point in his
attack, Mr. Fish declared that
while Mr. Mitchell was lauding
President Roosevelt, Mrs. Roose
velt and the cabinet, why was it
that Mr. Roosevelt refused to com
mit himself on the anti-lynch bill,
although he was greatly interested
in the welfare of other races and
creed three thousand miles away?
“One word from the White
House,” said Mr. Fish, “and the
anti-lynch bill would pass through
the senate without any difficulty
at all.”
Washington, March 25,—The na

Justice Black
New York—Senator George Nor
ris, famed Nebraska liberal, and
the Nation magazine have both
lauded the recent supreme court
decision handed down February 12,
and written by Justice Hugo L.
Black, of Alabama, in which the
supreme court of Florida was deni
ed the right to affirm the execu
tion of four Negro youths whose
conviction of murdering a white
' man had been upheld on the basis
of confesssions obtained by a week
of torture.
Said Senntor Norris February
29, in a letter to the National As
sociation for the Advancement of
Colored People, whose attorneys
carried the case to the high court.
“I think that that opinion is go
going to go a long way towards
placing not only the courts but
the administrative officials of the
entire United States on a much
higher plane than ever before. I
am not thinking particularly of
the colored race, because, as I see
it .this applies to the white race
as well.”
In a long and laudatory editor

24 the National Magazine conclud
‘‘We take out the stock of words
required for comment, and find
them all dirtied by hyprocrisy and
encrusted with cant. ‘The Majesty
of th# law;’- ‘Equqal Justice’; ‘de*-’

Ideals.’ We put the words away. All
we can say is that the supreme
court saved the lives of four Ne
groes. And saved something pre
cious for the rest of us, too.”

Johnson’s Drug Store, formerly
located at 24th & Parker St., which
merged with the Robinson Drug
Store on 24th & Grant St., a few
weeks ago found quarters too small
for the two stores. As a result of

will be remodled and a large arch
way cut through from the Robins
Drug Store which will make the
two stores into one large store.
