Lloyd Hunter, Dreamland. Dreamland Ballroom was really a sensational knockout. The mus ic set the hep cats ozzin along the floor with complete satisfaction. Thocs Gitterbug partners, such as Wendell Jenkins and Lilly An derson, Arista Taylor and Luther Taylor, Ester and her partner and a couple of other couples enter tained the mob during the dance. The large sentimental hall was well packed and no damage was ! done. Leroy Johnson seemed to like the way Mary Harris dances —he spent a good deal of the ev ening with her. \ Mary Franklin was really the lick, that Chic, was sharp as a Jap She was wearing a drapped peg blue stripe suit. She was really on like mad—Leaving the hall, we dug a black Chesterfield and Chickie derby she added to the rare outfit. #_ The most attractive corner on 24th St., is th atbeauty polar call ed “Verse's”. It is really attrac tive from the outside and inside. Mabee that is why a certain cat that runs from Lo - Angeles to! Bronzevilie stops there on every j stop to set a manicure. Lloyd Hunter’s orchestra who ^ played for the Elks dance Satur- j day night gave the bugs something to bug on. That music was so ‘ hot” it "heated' the hall, and af ter every session those cats and chicks were going out gasping lor wind. The style show which is an annual affair was a complete cue cess and was followed by a dance lasting until the orchestra struck up "home sweet home” at two c-' clock. The jammed hall that is rather small (compared to the Dreamland was rather difficult to turn around in when it came to “buggin.” so the studds left everything up to Lloyd Hunter—he played mostly Sentimental numbers that just "sent ya!” At two five everyone was Up stairs socializing for the rest cf the morning. Last week at the Orpheum every hepped or halfway hepped cats dug the stage show.

Today, he and many like him are performing an important war-time task. Uncle Sam has called on the railroads, not only to move vast quantities of war materials, but also to transport thousands of men in service. Thus, we are not always able to provide preferred accommodations for civilians who find it necessary to travel. To these patrons.

Since Jimmy Jewell gets the best for us —everyone wants to hear Lucky Millinder. and Sister Tharpe,— whom we all have been waiting to hear and to the crowds disappoint ment only appeared on stage once. The Ink Spots were also at the Ernie Fields dance while in “Bronzeville.” IT’S IMPOSSIBLE t o keep Bronzeville’s play mates out of that Greek place on 24th called the American Weiner shop. The owner likes the way your money circulates while you are there, but he doesn’t care about you being there. Oh: If only there was some way you people could throw your mon ey in there from the outside. There is a new manager in there now—Police Foxall. We gets a little better service now. Thanks to Foxall. Of all the people to wmnt to use a knife—can you feature Marjorie Johnson at the Elks club flashing, one she planned to sharpen on an other out of the city chic. Maggie Johnson who is in De jtroit visiting—expects to return ' home soon. She is really enjoying | herself according to last reports. Donald Stewart who is over seas is doing nicely with those Yellow Japs. He was hurt sometime ago but everythnig is honkey donkey now. He'll be home when he helps kill up our enemies—those Japs.

Since Jean Wright has antrCpd back to Omaha from the small town—she seems to excite Jack Hoard and Nate Mills. Delphia Nue who has been gone for sometime was seen in the Wein er shop.

Corrinne Seay was seated with an old flame A. T. Where was Kapplell and why wasn’t he on scene.? Why did a certain cat W.

HAST IE RECENTLY CIVILIAN AIDE TO SEC’Y OF WAR (continued from pi) vide enlisted technicians for the new air base at Tuskegep, a few Negro soldiers were accepted for tchnical trainnig at Chanute Field where a large school is maintain ed. The men were well received and did excellent work. I urged the importance of continuing 3uch training of Negroes in this exist ing unsegregated school. But the program stopped with the first} gruop. The Air Forces then made efforts to set up technical train ing at xuskegee or elsewhere. Dif ficulties were encountered. Mean while, successive classes of Ne gro Pilots were being trained, but no technical schooling of support ing ground crew members was in progress. Thus, even the segre gated program bot badly out of balance in the effort to effect its extension. The prospect is that in 1943, even with a tardy resumption of technical ground training, Ne gro pilots will be ready before and faster tha nadequate numbers cf trained ground crews are available The Air Forces also are reject ing Negro applicants wh0 wish to become weather officers or offic ers in other highly specialized! technical fields. A few such men were trained for Tuskegee. But for a period of more than six mon ths, all qualified Negro candidates have had their completed applica nts YOUR— POULTRY AT THE NEBRASKA PRODUCE 2204-6 NORTH 24th ST. oh the Best in Quality at the NEBRASKA PRODUCE Lowest Price PHONE WE. 4137 SUBSCRIBE tions returned to them with the information that the Air Force.? need no more Negro weatehr of ficers. The Air Forces, however, do need large numbers of addit ional weather officers so badly that white volunteers are being solicited and accepted, despite a general policy against voluntary enlistments in the Army. Yet. it is unthinkable to those in author ity that a Negro officer can fill such a position except at Tuskegee The same situation exists in arm ament and engineering, both ground specialities for which the Air Forces have been accepting cadets generally, but refusing Ne groes. To date, all Negro applicants, a number of them well and fullv qualified, for appointment as Ar my service pilots have been re jected. Two applicants were act ually instructed to report for training They did so but were sent home as soon as it was dis covered that they were Negroes. I am advised that this matter is receiving further study. The sim ple fact is that the Air. Command does not want Negro Pilots flying in and out of various fields, eat ing, sleeping and mingling with other personnel, as a service pilot must do in carrying out his var ious missions. Negro medical officers in the Air Forces are getting only part of the special training in aviation medicine which is available. They are not admitted to the principal school of aviation medicine at. Randolph Field. Even the branch school program in which it is rep resented that Negro officers share without discrimination is in factN discriminatory. Many white offic ers enrolled at branch schools of aviation medicine have the oppor tunity of full time resident study. The Negro officer is permitted to commute periodically from hid home station at Tuskegee for work at the Maxwell Field branch school. Such grudging partial ten der of makeshift schemes may be expected to continue unless a gen uine change of racial attitude and .policy occurs in the Air Command. while Negro trainees and cad ets at the Tuskegee Air Base have done well from a strictly techn ical Point of view, they have suf fered such demoralizing discrim ination and segregation that, in my judgement, the entire future of the Negro in combat aviation is in danger. Men cannot be humil iated over a long period of time without a loss of combat efficiency Specifically, Negro and white officers serving at Tuskegee in the common enterprise of train ing Negroes for air combat have separate messes. They are not permitted to have quarters in the same building. Separate toilet facilities have been provided, if the group of white officers at Tuskegee insist upon this and I have no evidence that they do— they are psychologically unsuited to train Negroes for combat. If they do not insist, the racial atti tude of the local commander or of higher authority is all the mora apparent. Despite original design to ad vance Negro officers and to placa them in posts of administrative responsibility at Tuskegee as rap idly as they should qualify, that design is not being carried out in the post administration, except in the station hospital. Early in the history of the Tus kegee project, a Negro soldier guarding a warehouse was dis armed and arrested by civilian authorities because he had chall enged a white civlian. From then| on friction continued. A new com mander was appointed. He dis armed Negro military policemen, assigned to patrol duty in rhe town of Tuskegee.

The Negro soldier was embittered, but the prejudiced community wa~< somewhat mollified. Fundamentally, it seems to me the Air Command has either fail ed to comprehend or failed to care that its policies and practic es are tending to tear down rath er than build up the pride, dignity an dself respect which Negro sol diers, like al lot her soldiers must possess if they are to achieve max imum combat efficiency.
