RADIO SERIES TO DEPICT NEGRO
CONTRIBUTIONS TO AMERICAN LIFE—
A series of educational radio programs planned
by the U. S. Office of Education and financed by a
Rosenwald Foundation grant will dramatize Negro
contributions to American life.
The programs, to be broadcast nationally, will
portray the role Negroes have played in American
education, art, science, industry, and other fields of
endeavor, U. S. Commissioner of Education John W.
The radio series is being prepared under the
geieral direction of Ambrose Caliver, U S. Office of
Education Specialist in the Education of Negroes
and William D. Boutwell, Chief, Division of Radio,
Publications, and Exhibits.
Plans for the project call for transcriptions of
the programs for use in schools, colleges and by local
radio stations. The transcriptions, and radio scripts
revised as lesson units and study guides, are expected
tj be used by both white and Negro schools in cours
es or units of instruction about Negroes in the Uni
Commissioner Studebaker said today that
this is a most important undertaking of the U S. Of
fice of Education in behalf of all Negirces who have
had a part in the development of our national cult
ure. “We shall do our utmost to report accurate and
full information abooit constructive activities and
accomplishments of Negroes in this radio series,”
said the Commissioner. “Much of this information
is not available in textbooks and in general reading
matter, yet it is the type of information that could
help to improve race relations and aid in solving
many problems of majority and minority groups.”
The U. S. Office of Education, will have the as
sistance of a technical advisory committee in devel
oping the series of radio programs, and is seeking
advice and suggestions from Negroes throughout the
United States to be considered in making further ■
To be included in the series will be the Negro's
participation in: Music, literature, art, religion, ex

industry, labor, education, civil and military service

JASPER COLE, JR. WRITES
IN PUBLIC PULSE OF THE
Omaha: With our national def
ense program on every tongue I
suppose another year will pass
with nothing done about the anti
lynch bill. According to our con
stitution, the Fourteenth amend
ment states, “No state shall deny
to any person in its jurisdiction
the equal protection of the law.’’
In the bill of rights the fifth art
icle says, “No person shall be de
prived of life, liberty or property
without due process of law,” which
supposedly means trial by judge
and jury. Therefore in my estim
ation the federal government can
prosecute any person or group of
persons for violating these provis
ions. Why hasn’t the government
done so? With all this talk of
democracy, enforcing our laws, be
ginning with our constitution,
would surely be a step toward just

IF WE DIDN’T PAY TAXES!
“If the Nebraska Power Comp
any didn’t pay taxes it could give
its customers free service two
months out of each year,” J. E.
Davidson, president of the comp
any, said today in commenting on
the report that an Iowa municipal
plant has given its customer’s one
month’s free service.
“In talking about electric rates,”
Mr. Davidson added, “it is well to
keep in mind that privately-owned
utilities pay taxes and municipal
utilities do not No comparison of
their electric rates, therefore, is
fair unless this freedom from tax
ation is considered.
“Our company pays $1,469,000 or
more than $4,000 a day, in taxes.
Our contribution to the support of
government takes 17 cents of ev
ery dollar we receive. This is
more than twice the 8 1-3 percent

service represents. Wevre our

And bolts of flamnig gold—
So folks will really get a jolt.

And say My! OH! My!
Let me shade my eyes—
Till whatever “Tis” passes by.
So you see dear Andy I too,

Of a red automobile—
That will put the F. D. too
For mine will be a car aflame.
So please don’t smart with envy
If luck should come to me—
And I get a flaming red one.
That outshines the noonday sun.
For if I do I’ll invite you—
To ride down Lennox avenue—
And lay old kingfish in the shade
When you and I parade.
