NEW YORK CONVENTION
ONE HUNDRED DELEGATES

FOR FEPC PASSAGE
—By Billy Watkins—
New York (Press Photo New'S Ser

raising the standards of America’s
influential Negro press by rejecting
fraudulent advertising and taking ‘dol
lar mark implications’ out of the news
was underway this week following
the Negro Newspaper Publishers’ As
sociation’s fifth annual Convention.
More than 100 delegates, represent
ing every important Negro publicat
ion in the country, attended the NN

and planning. Sessions were, held at
the Harlem YMCA.

The program to eliminate the ad
vertisement of luck charms, magic

H. Sengestacke, president of the N
NPA and publisher of the Chicago
State Athletic Commissioner C. B.
Powell, publisher of the Amsterdam
News, told delegates that he cut
fraudulent advertising out of his
newspaper two years ago. "If we
catch it in time,” Dr. Powell said,
“we reject it flatly. We lose about

Dollar mark implications in the
news received equally as hard a blow
when William G. (Bill) Nunn, man
aging editor of the Pittsburgh Cour
ier, criticized by inference the policy
of running paid for publicity as news.
"We've got to place more emphas
is on good, objective reporting,” Mr.
Nunn told delegates attending a pan
el discussion for editors and special
feature writers, "because our readers
are entitled to the best.”
New methods in circulation and
promotion were emphasized to the
delegates by members of the comm
ittee which sponsored a section of the
panel on business.
Alexander Barnes, chairman of the
committee and publisher of the Wash
ington Tribune, recommended that
Negro newspaper owners stabilize the
wholesale price of papers, hold a Na
tional Newsboy Day each year and
set up a central agency to promote
the sale of all Negro newspapers.
Others serving on the committee
with Mr. Barnes were James Mur
phy of the Afro-American; E. F.
Corbett, of the Journal and Guide,
Arthur Morrs of tihe Courier and'
Harry Alexander of the Cleveland
Call and Post.
