Of outstanding importance this

declared, “but also for full inte

This is every Americans emer

than a hurricane or a blizzard.
There is nothing exclusive about
it. There is nothing exclusive a
bout the war that is flaming in
three continents. Let me remind
you that an aerial bomb draws no
color line.
On June 25th President Roose
velt issued an executive order de
claring (and I quote) “it is the
policy of the United States to en
courage full participation in the
national defense program by all
citizens of the United States, re
gardless of race, creed, color or
national origin ”
Let us look for a moment at the
Negro’s contribution to the def
ense effort. There are 70,000 Ne
groes in the Army .including
more than 400 commissioned offic
ers. Fifty six nurses are now be
ing selected for the Army Nurse
Corps. The Army’s Chief of staff
General Marshall, enjoys the con
fidence of these soldiers as he does
of all our soldiers, and I can as
sure you that he reciprocates that

Pursuit Squadron of the Air Corps
That squadron, comprising 45 of
ficers and 390 enlisted men, now
in training at Chaute Field. Ill
inois, will have an air base near
Tuskegee, Alabama, which has
been designed by a Negro archi
tect and is being constructed by a
Negro contractor- The Tuskegee
base, 1,700 acres in extent, will
be the home field of the only tact
ical Air corps unit stationed in
Alabama. We also have a Negro
unit with the tanks. And we have
Negro units in every branch of the
service, units which are making a
fine record and of which every A
merican, white or colored, may
well be proud.
This is a national crisis. Amer
ica needs every element of her
[ population, and every element of
| her population needs Amrica. This
is a moment when our common
danger is so much more import
ance than any differences among
us that all of our thoughts and all
of our actions must be concentrat
ed on the National necessity.
I want to emphasize the great
opportunity—yes, the duty, which
the emergency affords the aver
age citizen, white or colored, of
getting acquainted with our new
Army. The army itself is made
up largely of average citizens.
Everyone can help to make b|e
more pleasant for the men who
constitute it, particularly when
they are on leave in or passing
through the larger cities. The
civilian population of the South
and the Southwest can be espec
ially helpful in such a collabor
ation, since the preponderance of
our military population is in that

The vast national defense demands for telephone

eral Pershing, who will celebrate
his eighty first birthday next
month, but who still puts the safe
ty and securit of his country be
fore everything else and who may
well be called the father of Nat
ional defense.
General Pershing writes:
nI am pleased to state that my
own experience with Negro troops
has left me a favorable impression
of their soldierly qualities and ef
ficiency. The old 10th Calvaiy,
a colored regiment with which I
served in Cuba, acquitted itself
with distinction, and our colored
troops in France during the World
War gave a good account of them
selves and contributed to the suc
cess of the AEF- The following
extract from a cablegram I sent
the War Department in June, 1918
testifies to the splendid spirit
found prevalent among them:
‘‘ ‘Exploit of two colored infan
trymen some weeks ago in repell
ing much larger German patrol,
killing and wounding several Ger
mans and winning Croix de Guerre
by their gallantry, has roused fine
spirit of emulation among the col
ored troops, all of whom are look
ing forward to more active serv
ice. Only regret expressed by
colored troops Is that they are not
given more dangeous work to do.”

Jesse Hutten, this reporters
