The Indian Question will not

Great Britain still talk about “Free

Indian leaders reply: “Freedom

such a declaration by the British
Government, India will join in an

The South Can Lose the War
i /Ki- r* n rvn ,rr r —--—^————...... .
er of the Louisiana Weekly for
Without a doubt this country has
to utilize all of its manpower and
womanpower if it is going to defeat
the axis. However, it seems that
some people within this country are
not of the same opinion, for wo
incidents occurred here recently
which have had a weakening effect
on the morale of Negroes anxious
to engage in the war effort, born
civilian and military.
The first incident is of the several
*'egro postal employes who volun
teered their services in answer to
the navy's call for specialized men
in that particular branch Of the ser
vice. Upon presenting themselves
they were told that Negroes were
not wanted and that there was no
place for them.
The second incident occurred
when a young ]ady of fair complex
ion had completed all the require
ments necessary for a job as a sten
ographer in the navy department
when it was discovered that she was
colored. Immediately she was ’o'*!
that the job was filled and the of
ficer so informing her aplogeticaily
said "remember this is the south."
President Roosevelt has indicated
by his Order 8802 that ALL tn«
manpower in this country has to be
utilized regardless to race, creed,
color, or national origin. The ex
act words of his order are herein
stated. ‘I do hereby reaffirm the
policy of the United States that
there shall be no discrimination in
the employment of the workers in
defense industries or government
because of race, creed, color, or na
tional origin, and I do hereby dc
Clare that it is the duty of employ
ers and of labor organizations in
furtherance Of said policy and of
this order, to provide for the full
and equitable participation of all
workers in defense industries, with
out discrimination because of race,
creed, color or national origin._’’
With the recent report of the
Nazis' successes in Russia a pertin
ent question arises ‘ does the south
know they can lose the war by
turning down good, loyal prospect
ive Negro citizens in both military
and civilian phases of the war effort
because they are black and must be
•kept in their place?* It is a fore
gone conclusion that the southern
clique which runs the army and
navy and influences war industries
can’t go on hampering the war ef
fort with their prejudices in this
way if the axis is to be defeated.
For whether the south knows it or
not. many of the united nations al
lies happen to be dark skinned races
and view with particular concern
the treatment of the Negro in the
Our dark skinned allies not that
there is a strange similarity be
tween the south’s treatment of Ne
gro citizens and the way Hitler
writes he will treat them if he ever
wins. In other words, the south
comes altogether too close to prac
ticing what Hitler has preached in
his book "Mein Kampf.-' Does the
south realize with its lynchings. pol
ice brutality. "For White Only’
signs, poll tax laws, unequal school
systems and white primaries that it
compares favorably with Hitler’s in
famous theory? Does the south
know that the United States is a
member of the united nations and
has as its allies China- Africa. India
Russia and numerous South and La
tin American countries among
which there are many dark skinned
people who believe that they are
fighting the people’s revolution to
end the exploitation of the MANY
by the FEW? Does the south real
ize that a continuance of the inhum
an treatment of Negroes doesn’t do
anything to strengthen the ties be
tween our allies and the United
States? Is the south aware of the
fact that India’s great leader. Ma
hatma Ghandi. knows of the United
States’ hypocrisy in the treatment
of the Negro ° Does the south know
that all talk of democracy, the fight
for freedom, and the like suffer
greatly when the dark skinned all
ies read of such incidents. Dude
Cochran, a white man. shooting a
Negro fatally in the courtroom and
being freed almost immediately, civ
ilian police brutalizing Negro sold
iers. separate Negro divisions in the
army and navy and the barring of
Negroes from important defense
jobs? Does the south know- all those
various injustices make our dark
skinned allies susceptible to the
smooth propaganda of the Japs?
Does the south remember what hap
pened in Burma, Malaya, Singapore,
If the south doesn't know these
things they should be making some
t attempts to find out and seek a
change of attitude. For it is going
to take the strength, courage, man
power and fighting of all our people
to win the war and defeat the sup
erior minded Aryans and Japs.
They are not going to fight for a
new brand of white superiority, ex
ploitation, and imperialism. The:
will figfat for the four freedoms, a
democracy of the people, a people s
world^ but that alone. We nave
made up our mind what we want to
fight for. . . .let’s fight for it.

NO SUCCESSFUL PLAN YET FOR
(by EMORY O. JACKSON)
BIRMINGHAM. July 20 (ANP) —
A review of the 10 year "planned” j
fight for the ballot in Birmingham
reveals that every device used to in
crease Negro suffrage has been re- I
strictive in nature and results.
Nearly every organization of any
strength since 1932 has tried one
plan or another to make it so Negro
citizens could register to vote tlje
same as any other person with bas
ically the same qualifications. Tho
plans that have worked could n>t
achieve the hope because of inherit
limitations in all of them.
Six of those plans have been (1) j
the quota system; (2) prune off plan
(3) the get-w-white-man to vouch for
you strategy; (4) trickling; (5) going
back and going back: (6) and cou-t j
The “quota system" is a plan by
which only a certain number of ap- i
plicants will be registered to vote
no mater how many with qualific
ations apply for their vote certif
icates. This has been a yardstick
used by every board of registrars:
that has held that position in th
past 12 years.
Once registered in Alabama, and
after one has paid his poll tax for
25 years, his name automatically re
mains on the vote list unless he is
reported dead, or orders it transfer
red. Knowing this, an extra-off: > ]
ial proposition was suggested that
for every Negro's name pruned from
the list another’s would be placed
on. That plan made no headway.
The “vouch plan’ is where one
would get an influential white per
son to o. k. him and whisper a r -
kind words in his behalf to some ;
one who stood in with the board, or
members Of the board itself.
“Trickling" is somewhat of
sneak system by which applicants
would quietly go one by one and
according to a schedule. This
came about when some organizat
ion had advocated a mass rush on
the office of registration.
Some have felt that it was best
to go back and go back until the
board was worried down. Net ef
fect of this was that a young man
say 21. going to the board would
be refused registration five time.--.
By now his poll tax would have ac
cumulated to $4.50 or more. Prlc -
ox voting now was so costly as to
discourage him. Yet some paid ns;
high as $37.50, which is the lifetime

The Birmingham branch Of the

ference: secondly through an ap
