.ARKANSAS JUDGE RULES IN
FAVOR OF TEACHERS’
Little Rock. Ark., Jan. 12 (ANP)
The fight against teachers’ salary
discrimination in the south receiv
ed a temporary setback when Fed
eral District Judge T. C. Trimbla
ruled last week that Miss Susie
Morris, local high school teacher,
would not be given equal salary to
that of white teachers with equal
training and experience.
Miss Morris brought action a
gainst the school board in IP42 to
prevent salary discrimination a
gainst colored teachers, a practice
that has resulted in lowering the
efficiency and rating of Negrc
schools in the south.
"The court is of the opinion that
the edfendants (members of the
school board) have a right to fix
the salary of each individual tea
cher in the system, according to
their real worth and value to the
system as teachers, and are not re
quired to set up and adhere to
some arbitrary standard of Collegf
degrees and years of experience in
teaching, some mechanical method
of means of determining salaries."
said Judge Trimble.
Members of the school board
found an excuse for paying white
teachers higher salaries by saying
that white teachers were Usually
paid higher salaries because of bet
ter training, experience and cert
ain intangible qualifications such
as “personality, aptitude and coop

Double Day and Doran Announces The
George Washington Carver Memorial Award
This award is offered by Doubledav, Doran and Company
and is open to any book that deals with American Negroes. It is
an award of $2,500 ($1,500 outright, $1,000 as an advance against
royalties). The offer will remain open indefinitely in our discretion.
It will not be based on manuscripts received during a particular
period but the award will be given whenever a full-length manuscript
seems in the estimation of the judges to be worthy of this special
recognition. The judges will be the editors of Doubleday, Doran and
It is the hope of Doubleday, Doran that this award will
serve as one means of keeping alive the memory of a great American,
and that it will also help to give wide distribution to books about the
American Negro. It is certainly an exaggeration to say that Uncle
Tom’s Cabin brought on the Civil War, but it is certainly no exaggera
tion to say that the moral indignation it aroused in the North had a
= a: deal to do with t ruling the inhuman institution of slavery.
Bork-i are weapons.
A book entered for the George Washington Carver Memorial
Award msy take any fo m as long as it is an effective book and has
something to say. It may be fiction, non-fiction or poetry. It may
be written by anyone who illuminates the Negro’s place in American
life D ubteday, Dora-, reseives the right to publish any book sub
mitted even if it does not win the award, on terms to be arranged.
The George Washington Carver Memorial Award winners
will be extensively promoted and their authors will receive the fol
lowing scale of royalties: 10 per cert on the first 2,500 copies; 12%
per cent on the next 2,500 copies; and 15 per cent thereafter.
Manuscripts should be addressed to the Editors, George

IN OLD ARIZONA
I All of us are ueeply concerned
at the appalling lack of information
jamong,white Americans regarding
the enormous part the Negro is
playing in the fighting of the war
despite the handicaps he encount
ers. It is our measured belief that
when the war ends there will be
a great d al of opposition to the
Negro sharing in the benefits of
the victory unless every possible
means is utilized to publicize what
the Negro is doing. It is also ’m
perati^e that attention be directed
persistently to the limitations both
here and abroad on the Negro s
icularly to the paucity of Combat
units of Negroes, continued segre
; gation. and the very great eonfi.ie
ment of Xegores to ‘service” " it
Fortunately, I have been •) •i.r>
issjoned to do articles for the New
Yolk Post and at least three articl
es for Life. The reader circu' i 1
of the latter is now estimar
20,000.000, so that you can see r‘
advantage of our story being told
I want also to explain, since
there has been some misnnd-T
standing- about it, why I sought
accreditation as a wal Correspond
ent from a white instead of a Ne
gro publication. As you know, the (
.Negro publishers' pool has a cer
tain number of correspondents as
signed to it. A number of thesf
corespondents have been awaiting
accreditation and transportation
for some months. I knew if 1 ask
ed accreditation from the pool or
from any individual Negro public- '
atiop it might possibly prevent or
delay the accleditation. I there
fore did not ask such accreditation
lest it might interfere.
It is also my hope that I shall
present the global problem of col
or in its relation to other econom-d
territorial, social and political uue®
tions ip a manner which will be
helpful to ps all. If this war
should end with the continuation
of white overlordship over brown,
yellow and black peoples of the
world there will inevitably be an
other war and continued misery
for the colored peoples of the Unit
ed States, the West Indies, South
America Africa and the Pacific.
Finally, it is my intention to see
what treatment is being given cCJ
“THE LODGER,” A Spine-Chiller
The spine-chilling crimes of Jack the Ripper, arch
criminal of London’s 1880’s, form the basis of
Twentieth Century-Fox’s new tale of mystery and
romance, “The Lodger.” Costarring Merle Ober
on, George Sanders and Laird Cregar, the new thril
ler, based upon the best-selling novel aboht “The
Ripper” by Mrs. Marie Belloc-Downdes, tells the
story of the days when all London was in the terror
izing grip of the marauding murderer, whose knife
was wet with the blood of at least five victims

shown four of the pincipals who bring to the screen
the caeer of one of the most intriguing criminals of
all time. They are Merle Oberon (senter), George

Cedric Hardwicke (lower left).
