Rational Urban League
Launch Campaign for Post
New York—The National Urbanj
League, an organization for the pro
motion of interracial cooperation, is
launching a broadside attack upon
certain Army policies that exclude '
Negroes from the Air Command, and |
consequently, from many post-wai J
aviation opportunities. The Leagu-;
e's effort, decided upon at a meet- j
mg of its Executive Board here in j
New Yori^ City last Tuesday, is j
part of a campaign to secure post- j
war aviation opportunities for Ne
groes in the passenger and freight
Leadership in the campaign will
be offered by a National Committee
on Aviation Opportunities which
representative leaders all over the
country will be invited to join. Sev
eral members of Congress have al
ready expressed interest in a pro
gram aimed at changing present
Army policy in regard to Negroes,

| ed Services. But up to the present
| time, the use of Negro fliers is still
sharply limited in the Army, while
the Navy has successfully resisted
any use of Negroes in avition. The
Army's exclusion of colored fliers
| from the Air Transport Command is
particularly significant with regard
i to post-war aviation opportunities.
The thousands of men now piloting
and servicing the Air Transports
compose a reservoir from which fli
ers, technicians, and mechanics will
be drawn for post-war. commercial;,
and passenger transport. If Army
policy is successful in excluding
Negroes from this branch of serv
ice, then members of that race will
once more be ‘the last hired' in a
new field of post-war employment.
America cannot afford to perpet-!
uate ante helium employment polic
ies in new fields of economic op
portunity. either now or in the fut
ure. This war in both its industrial
and military phases should be
; taught every intelligent American
that a man's importance as a work
er is not affected by the color of
his skin The successful integra
tion of Negroes in the manufacture
of airplanes and aircraft equipment,
and their perforamnce in Army
fighter and bomber groups is an
unanswerable -argument for his in- ^

The National Urban League pro
poses to draw this issue very clear
ly in the field of aviation as it has
done in other fields for the past 35
years. It is throwing the support
of the whole organization behind
the employment of Negroes in civil
aviation, and invites progressive
persons from all segments of Amer
ican life to Join its effort.

provide practical suggestions for
local Health Week Committees thru
the United States conducting year
round health programs and Negro ]
Health Week observances.
A record of accomplishment soul
satisfying indeed, is related here
with. when in 1922, despite the suc
cessful and encouraging results,
not more than ten percent of the
total Negro population was reached
and but 129 communities participat
ed. By 1935, 2,500 communities
were participating and today, finds
nearly every Negro community, the
country over, engaging in observ
ing National Negro Health Week.
In 1913. the Health rate among Ne
groes, nationally was 24 per 1000,
by 1936, it is said the rate can be
decreased to 12, per 1000. The an
nual loss to the South in potential
earnings because of preventable
death* among Negro people is $170
000,000. In the South 450.000 Ne
gro persons are seriously ill all the
time, an average of 18 days per
year for each Negro inhabitant. The
annual economic loss to the South
alone from sickness and death a
mong Negroes amounts to over
$300,000 000. $150 000,000 of this a
mount could be saved. L.et us then
unite and stand by the National
Negro Health Movement. The Health
of Omaha persons of color is im
portant. Everywhere the cry is
improve our health and conditions
of living. Everyone is expected to
participate in the National Negro
Health Week Movement in Omaha.

DO YOU KNOW
Here are the answers
to some of the questions
in the Omaha power controversy
Q. Who owns the Nebraska Power Company?
A. The OMAHA ELECTRIC COMMITTEE, INC., bought the Company on
December 26, 1944 and is holding ft in trust for the people until a PUBLIC
POWER DISTRICT has been created. The Committee will then turn it
over to the District to be operated by your elected representatives ... to
be operated by you.
Q. Will the Company be operated by the same engineering and technical personnel?
A. Definitely YES. Every officer and employee has been retained so that your
service can be maintained at the same high standard that you have always
Q. Is this a private versus public ownership controversy?
A. Definitely NO. Public ownership is here—it’s up to you to keep it! It means
a saving of over $3,000,000 every year, which can be used to reduce your
rates and to retire the indebtedness of the former private owners.
