Constantly on guard, insistant in its demands for fair play and equal rights, peering into every opening and venture where public funds are used to carry on to see that every contri | bution reaps an adequate return on his investment, no matter how small or how large. We all must put some thing into life’s struggle if we expect to take anything out. That is fair in that we are not riding on the shoulders of someone else. We are being contacted every day in nearly every walk of life to give support to the mobilization of our forces to the end that the FEPC. may become a Law on our statute books for all time. No wishful thinking will avail anything. So it is up to all organizations and individuals to write, telegraph and page our Repres entatives in Washington. This bill which is now on the Senate calendar is in great danger of being filibust ered to its death by the reactionar ies and enemies who are determined that progress shall no be made be cause it means the shelving of so much of the jim crow and closed doors rules now in force not only in the south but all over America. While we are in the fight for De mocracy the World over and gladly so, we must fight for the right to earn the barest and most necessary means for human existence. There is in the Government departments men who study ways and means of holding Negroes back, irregardless of ability, education, culture and qualif ! ications. This is true of public and private institutions. It is a nasty, contemptible plan and excuse put forth in that they say the public objects to being served by a Negro or the help does or might ob ject, when they have no right or rul es to deny that for which you con tend and have proven by tests or ex perience to be entitled. Negroes of Omaha you must get together, you must organize. You must be more concrete. You must select worth while men to lead and be followed. No group in Omaha or Nebraska but what is unified and get more respect ful attention than Negroes. It is pit iable. It is shameful with all the men and women in Omaha with the Degrees and diplomas in law, medic ine, teaching and many other avenues of human ambitions and yet we are so d;vided and distrustful that there is not a single man in Omaha who I could safely say 73% of our group would respect and follow as a lead er. Snap out of it and do away with envy, jealousy, greed, selfish ambit ions and those nasty, contemptiDle thoughts that strangle and debase us. In our Interracial committee work we have a wonderful group of broad liberal and tolerant group who are putting forth every effort to draw closer together the people of the com munity and are exhibiting a determin ation to force an educational growth of mind and heart which must in the end mean real Democratic freedom for which we now fight and dream.

Its worth and value canot be estimat ed when it comes to our economics, religious and moral progress. If you are not a member, why not investigate w’ith a view to becoming a party t' this great and helpful organization? It is to be legretted that the Exe cutive Board of the NAACP at its last regular meeting decided to hold open meetings once every three mon ths instead of once a month. This should not be. The more we plan and build, the more we show the pub lic wt are on the job. The more we spread the happenings of the country and community. The more we prove our right to be the watchdog of our interests, the better for us. Jlore meetings and more power. HVVB.

PPNS PERMANENT EEPC COUNCIL HITS SNAG SUPPORT DROPS WASHINGTON, April 20 (ANP The work of the National Council for a Permanent FEPC, to all intents anc. purposes, has been snagged on the rork of policy. Sources both in and out og government whose sympathies ail along have been and still are in support of the idea by the council, are agreed upon this point. To begin with, the council was born ot the imagination of A. Philip Ran dolph and his March on Washington Movement, early in 1943. According to a stronger supp irter of the -MOW M here in Washington, it was not the intent of the organization to domin ate the council in any way but rather to get it moving and to leave it to itj own devices. The chairmanship of the council, however, was shared by Randolph and Dr. Allen Knight Chalmers, pastor of tlie Broadway Tabernacle church in New York. A large national comm ittee was created and then a smaller executive committee. The larger number of appoinments to this smal ler group were and are held by Ne groes. Because of his multiplicity of dut ies Randolph quite naturally left much responsibility with B. F. Me Laurin, a field representative for his Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Por ters. Mcaurin, it might be said, has always been available to "second St. Philip’s motion", as one individual has described him. When he council decided finally to get down to work early this year, two secretaries were named with the func tions of neither ever clearly defined. They are Mrs. Ann Arnold Hedge man, former racial relations advisor in New York for the Office of Civ ilian Defense; and Will Allen, a newspaperman, Washington represent ative for the International Ladies Garment Workers union, and a skilled lobbyist.

The representation included a number of influential whites. Since that time the organiz ation has been fumbling along with out adequate direction. At least two important matters in volving policy have not yet been set tled. if present indications are to be believed. The first involves actual minority representations in the coun cil; the other, the position to be tak en tegarding the present struggle of FEPC for a budget. Obstrvors here have long felt hat if permanent FEPC is ever to be realized, the effort is going to re quire the concerted efforts of all min or hv groups who can be convinced that they have a stake in the fight. These individuals maintain that FE PC is held by many to represent noth ing more than an instrument for handling Negro grievances only. They point cut that the committee itself has said or none nothing to demon strate otherwise, either in its make up or in its solicitation of space in newspapers. Consequently, the disposition of the national council to recognize this fact adequately has done nothing to clear the air of this thinking. Sam Bar ron of the Textile Workers Union and George Hunton representing the Catholic Interracial council are the whites on the executive committee. The Amalgamated Clothing Workers Union was to have a person on the committee also|. A check disclosed that when these individuals have attended meetings, one or two of the Negroes there al ways tried to dominate the meetings. Apart from this, the representation granetd has been construed as being meagre. Regarding the FEPC budget, the cohmittee has yet to decide whether it would be sound to push for an ap propriation for a "temforary” agency at the same time that it is pressing for hearings on a permanent agency. Argument, informerly, has been of fered on both sides. Queried on the council's position on this question three weeks ago, Mrs. Hedgeman said she did not know what the attitude would be. She did not know at the time that a letter to editors was then in the mail, ostens ibly signed by Randolph, urging sup port for the budget in the name of the council. Asked later about this she said she knew of no meeting of the executive committee at which this was discuss. Nor does anyone else identified with the council recall such a formal discussion. ^ One effect that is developing out of this indecision is the gradual “sloughing off” of support from trade unions. Numerous sizeable pledges had been received but few have been realized, it is reliably learned. 1 The CIO was expected to come | through, but has failed so far. There j is one report that instead of bringing Willard S. Townsend, president, Uni ted Transport Service Employes of America (CIO) into the executive committee, he was given a position on the national committee. A substantial contribution has been expected momentarily from David I Dubinsky and the I LG MU which is being held up pending "clarification” of matters. The feeling is that Randolph is not taking the active part in the council that he might, but rather has left this to McLaurin. The belief is that in stead of getting down to work, Mc Laurin has been more concerned a bout winning control over the execu tive committee. [ REDDEN’S !
