headed by Senator Truman of Mis
The other two members of the
Committee—Senator Albert B.
Chandler. Democrat, Ky., and Sen
ator Henry Cabot Jr., Republican,
Mass., were not in Washington at
the time of the interview.
“American armed forces consti
tute the toughest fighting machine
the world has ever known’’ said
Senator Russell, who acted as chair
man. “They are the best trained
and equipped of all soldiers in this
war and are ready and anxious io
get on with the war so they can
return home,” he continued.
Asked about the opening of the
Burma Road and American troops
in Indian and China, Senator Rus
sell told of present difficulties of
getting supplies to the Chinese.
He told of how the supplies had to
be unloaded from ships, reloaded
on trains, transferred several tim
es from different railroads because,
of the difference in the gauge and
the trip finally completed by air
plane to the fighting forces. Most
of this ' ork of handling thes-; .-up
plies is f>: r.v don ■ by Amcri.nn
intse negroes, tsaiu oenaior
Russell, “can unload a ship in four
days, where it formerly took the
native Indians and British troops
Inquiry was also made about the
French troops now fighting with
the United Nations. These troops
were trained and equipped by the
United Nations and are mostly col
onials from North Africa. They
are the most feared of all the sol
diers now in Europe, said Senator
Senator Meade was also enthus
iastic in his remarks about Negro
soldiers. He praised the coordin
ation of the American armed forc
es in the Southwest Pacific and
pointed as an example of this co
ordination the fact that the Amer
ican soldiers, sailors and Marines
in this area all dressed alike. “You
can't tell what branch of the ser
vice they belong to from their ap
pearance,” he said.
He paid special tribute to the
work of Negro Seab^es of the Navy
who have built roads, airports and
handled much of the supplies go
ing into the Southwest Pacific a
rea. Negro Seabees and soldiers
in this area were highly thought of
by their officers from General Mac
Arthur down he said.
En route home the Senators stop
ped in Hawaii where they were
greeted by a Negro Anti-Aircraft
regiment from New York, Under1
! command of Col. Chauncey M.
Hooper. “This regiment is doing
a great job,” said Senator Mead.
Senator Russell, speaking for the
group, said that he thought most
of the people at home had under
estimated the strength of the Jap
anese. He said no one who had
not been there could understand
the bitterness of the fight against
the Japanese in the South Pacific.
Senator Brewster added, “The
nearest thing I can think of is
what American pioneers were up
against fighting Indians in our
Asked for opinions on how long
the war would last, Senator Rus
sell replied that he thought Ger
many might crumble any day but
said the German Army was still a
tough fighting force which should
not be underestimated.

ing need of the moment which
must be made by thoughtful and
courageous Negro leadership.
8. Social agencies are called up
on to re-examine their present pro
grams in the light of their origin
al philosophy and obectives. They
must recognize their responsibility
for serving all people without dis
crimination because of race.
9. Police departments in cities
throughout the country have an
opportunity and duty to reorgan
ize their policies and practices in,
accordance with the requirements!
of democratic government. Not'
only the attitudes of individual po
lice officers, but the policies of
whole departmnets must be reex
amined and improved in the light
of tense situations of the present
10. .Programs for consumer edu
cation and protection must be de
veloped among the Negro popula
11. Medical and health ser/ices
to the Negro population must be
strengthened now as a wartime
health need of Negroes and also rs
a protection against the further
deterioration of these services dur
ing the post-war period. Th?*e is
a danger that the policies of racial
segregation and discrimin ttion
which are, unfortunately, a part of
the army’s and navy’s medical pol
icies will be reflected in increased
racial discrimination in hospitals
and other public health services
as present Army and Navy officers
return to civilian medical practice.
12. Industrial management, or
ganized labor, and government
share a common responsibility lor
protecting Negro workers against
undue hardship in the release of
workers from their present war
time jobs. Without waiting for t'no
end of fhe war, leadership in each
of these fields should begin im
mediately and in cooperation with
Negro leaders, to discuss questions
of job seniority, transfer of work
ers in plant conversion, retraining
of workers, for peace-time jobs and
elimination of the remaining »e
strictions against Negro member
ship in trade unions. It is desir
able that reforms along these lines
be accomplished with a minimum
o flegislation, but where industrial
and labor leadership proves obdur
ate against assumption of proper
social resonsibilities, legislative
leaders should begin now to frame
effective legislation designed to
rotect the rights of all the people
to all employment opportunities.

mocratic responsibility which is
theirs for creating the proper rac
ial attitudes and understanding by
presenting all maters pertaining to
the education of the public in an
unbiased and constructive manner.
One of the specific steps taken
by the conference was the sending
of a telegram to both the sentae!
and house appropriations commit
tcees pointing out to them the ‘‘in
tolerable housing and living condi
tions of whites and Negroes” which
they said, constitutes ‘‘one of the
basic causes of racial tension” and
a peril to the war effort.” As an
essential step toward easing racial
tensions, promoting national Unity
and winning the war,” the group
urged, “the immediate appropria
tion of the balance o^ $200,000,00
for war housing and of $150,000,000
for associated war public works and
services already authorized by the |
congress Under the Lanham act,”
should be made.
Both Gov. Dwight H. Green of
Illinois and Mayor Edward J. Kel
ly of Chicago had proclaimed the
period of the conference as “Vic
tory Through Unity Week,1” to
which President Roosevelt, in a
strongly worded message, gave his
endorsement. The President fur
ther wrote that he could not see
how America could "stand before
the world as a champion of oppres
sed peoples unless we practice as
well as preach the principles of de
mocracy for all men.”
The two speakers participating
in the opening session of the con
ference last Tuesday afternoon a
greed that the status of public
morale in terms of minority and ,
race relations adjustment is at the
point where a lack of full particip
ation on the part of all citizens is j
hampering the war effort. They j
attributed the cause to traditional
hostilities against the Negro in
the armed forces and in industry.
The speakers were Frederick B.

and membership activities of Ford

Mayor Kelly appeared on the pro
gram of the first evening meeting,
attended by nearly 2,000 persons in |
the Wendell Phillips High School
i auditorium ,and declared that ”A
mericans are standing together as
their brother’s keeper, fighting the
common fight for decency, and the
destruction of racial discrimirat
ion.” It was here that Granger
first outlined his program.
Dr. Louis Wirth, professor of soc
-iology. University of Chicago, saw
! an attempt on the part of the en
i cmies to make of this a racial war
and warned that this pitfall must
hr avoided. He pointed to the
‘uniqueness” of this war, in that
our slogans have all been made for
us by the enem.y "Democracy is
in antithesis to dictatorship,” he
said, "racial bigotry is in antithesis
to racial equality.”
‘‘The Negro would do best if l«e
is allied with the forces of progress
rather than the forces of reaction”
he said, ‘‘because he suffers the
greatest disability under the status
quo. If he can arouse the con
science of the nation, he can help
the rest keep their heads now:'
Harold A. Lett, executive secre
tary, Newark Urban league, was on
the same program with Dr. Wii'th
on Wednesday afternoon. Lett
outlined the procedures of estab

discussed some of the techniques
of committee work.
Col. Campbell C. Johnson, execu
tive assistant to the director, na
tional selective service system and
Mark A. McCloskey, director of re
creation, office of community war

noon. The topic was "The Service
Man and His Family."
Col. Johnson reviewed the work
of the war and navy departments
under the Allotment and Allow
ance act of 1942 as they attempt to
meet the problem, and brought in
a description of the efforts of the
Army Emergency relief, the Navy
Relief society, and the local comm
unity welfare services. He declar
ed the problem confronting all
these agencies is getting the fam
ilies of servicemen acquainted with
the whereabouts of these solutions
in meeting their needs.

will have to provide facilities lor
