CALIF. SUPREME COURT
OUTLAWS JIM CROW UNIONS
San Francisco, Calif.—In uphold
ng an injunction granted eo Negro
employees at the Marineship Corpor
ation at Sausalito, the Supreme court
of California, established a precedent
outlawing discriminatory practices of
jim-crow auxiliary unions- The
case was filed originally by Joseph
James, president, the San Francisco
Branch NAACP and other workers,
and argued by attorneys George R.
Anderson and Herbert Resner
The Court ruled that a labor un
ion must admit Negroes to full mem
bership or not try to enforce a clos
ed shop agreement- The opinion,
written by Chief Justice Phil S.
‘An arbitrarily closed or partially
closed union is incompatible with a
closer shop- Where a union has, as
in this case, attained a monopoly of
the supply of labor by ;..-.ans of
closed shop agreements and other

structions for a train soon to arrive and for which
the conductor must sign. The station agent sets the
semaphore. The red light flashes its warning. The
train arrives and rumbles to a stop.
This is just one of many safety measures established
by Union Pacific to assure reliable transportation
of passengers and freight. War resulted in a tre
mendous increase in rail traffic. As might be
expected, a large part of that traffic has been
directed over Union Pacific's "strategic middle
xoute" uniting the East with the Pacific Coast
Through constant vigilance and tireless effort on
the part of employes, thousands of men and train
loads of materials have been moved efficiently and
quickly to aid the Allied cause.

The constant improvements in railroading, resulting
in safe, efficient transportation, are due in large
measure to the American system of encouraging
workers to seek advancement through personal
enterprise and initiative. We're fighting and
working to maintain that spirit of equal oppor
tunity for all.

Quick Frozen Foods are a Savory ,
<»v j First Aid for Furlough Treats
IF you have to play a double role
of chief cook and glamour girl
when your man comes home on fur
lough. you’ll find it wise to squirrel
away ail sorts of ideas for serving
time-saving meals. Time is too pre
cious to spend much of it in the
One big time-saving aid is quick
frozen foods, which are ready to
heat or cook just as they come from
their cartons. All the messy work of
preparation was done before quick
freezing sealed in their full quota
of minerals and vitamins as well
as their farm-fresh flavor right after
they were harvested. Although some
of the quick-frozen treats are not
generally available now, because of
the war, there are good supplies of
quick-frozen corn, green beans and
wax beans and spinach as well as
delicious squash and baked beans
which are cooked before quick-freez
Quick-frozen vegetables are deli
cious served just with butter and
pepper and salt. But when butter is
scarce, there are many easy ways
j of varying their serving. Fried corn,
' for instance, which calls for sliced
green pepper and a bit of onion,
takes only a few minutes to pre
pare, for the corn is turned into the
skillet while still frozen solid. And
by preparing a box of quick-frozen
green beans with cooked rice, you
can make a meal-in-one dish in jig
time that everybody will like.
Savory Rice and Green Beans
1 box (10 oz.) quick-frozen green
1 cup boiling water, salted
14 cup finely diced onion
% cup finely diced celery
2 tablespoons butter or other
114 cups canned tomatoes
14 teaspoon celery salt
114 cups cooked rice
14 teaspoon sugar
Salt and pepper
Drop frozen green, beans Into
briskly boiling salted water, bring
again to a boil, and boil 8 to 12
minutes, or until just tender. Drain.
Saut6 onion and celery in butter,
covered, until tender but not
browned. Add remaining ingredients
and simmer about 5 minutes. Serves
4 to 6.
Note: If desired, V4 box quick
frozen beans may be substituted for

1 cup sliced green peppers
1 teaspoon minced onion
6 tablespoons butter or other

H. C. Brearlcy of Peabody College
discusses “The Negro's New Bellig
erency , which- he says- has devel

is causing much alarm not only in the
South but in the North. The writer
makes it clear that although this re
bellious attitude of the Negro may
seem sudden, in reality it has been in
the making at least since World Wai
I- Professor Brearley states that
years of frustration have produced in
many Negroes an “oppression psych
osis” and points to the fact that like
any minority the Negro faces the 1
difficult choice of when to be docile
and when to be aggressive. The
group must avoid any conduct or at
titude that will unite against it the
vast white majority, he says, "for
