If there is any one thing which
stands out in connection with that
demonstration apart from the ditch

Henry A. Wallace it is probably the
very effective way in which labor’s
managers utilized the attitude of Ne

Negro leaders themselves had pav

These leaders appeared before the
resolutions committee of the Repub

ly, the party acceded to each of their
demands, practically without equivo

do less? The CIO through its Polit

greater aggressiveness between the
two branches of labor. There are
approximately a half million Negroes
organized in CIO unions, and Presi
dent Philip Murray has frequently
spoken out in support of Negro de
mands, both i nand out of congress.
In short, the CIO through the years,
had carefully nutured its Negro mem

ranks signs of discrimination. It had
achieved an eminent position as a
Henry A. Wallace too had endear

“common man" was felt by every
Negro as his personal plea for a
“break.” In 1943 Mr. Wallace show

people in Detroit shortly after the
riots and publicly abhored such un
democratic conduct. He went furth

The south had determined on two
things—a "white supremacy ’ plank,

It was mainly the objection cf Ne

leaders to eliminate him quickly, ev

him. Bob Hannegan, the Democrat

bosses who would have put Brynes 1

defeated that argument was an anti

Grand Old Man of
Musical Comedy Era
New York, August 1,(PPNS) —
The death os Will Marion Cook herei
in Harlem Hospital a sew days ago,
marked the passing ol one of the
pioneers in Negro show life. A dis
tinguished comloser, his compositions
ranked tops on the hit parade in the
earlier part of the century. He en
joyed his greatest success during the
days when the American stage in
cluded in its galaxy of brilliant pcr
forsers such luminaries as Bert Wil
liams, George Walker, Jesse Shipp,
Bob Cole, Ernest Hogan and a num
ber of others.
At the time of his death, Cook was
75, and had been in Harlem hospital
several weeks following his return
from Haiti where he had been living
with his son, Mercer. He was born
in Washington, DC., in 1869, the son
of the Howard University Law pro
fessor, Dr. John H. Cook. He stud
ied at the Oberlin Conservatory of
Music and later he went to Berlin
and continued his music studies with
Dr. Joseph Joachim who was so cap
tivated by his technique on the violin
that he presented him with his own
instrument. On returning to Amer
