At the recent convention in Chicago of the A. F. of L.
International Vlliancc of Theatrical Stage Employees
and Motion Picture Operators, 22 Negro union mem
ber-. representing “auxiliaries,” were denied admission
to the convention floor.
Members of this delegation, representing hundreds
of Negro workers from all over the country, declared
that they were being “taxed without representation.”
THROl 4,11 “CLOSED MEMBERSHIPS” AND “CLOS
ED SHOP” CONTRACTS, NEGROES ARE DENIED
EMPLOYMENT IN MANY TRADE UNIONS.
If Constitutional Amendment 302 is passed, the
Negro worker will have new independence of decision
und action! In trades where Negroes are now admitted
to “auxiliary” membership hut DENIED A VOICE IN
I NlON AFFAIRS, they will Ik- aide to resign from the
union if they desire and still retain their jobs. This
wvnild place Negroes in an excellent bargaining position
in order to win and hold their just rights. In trades
which are now closed to Negroes because closed shop
unions will not admit them to membership, Negroes
will, under Antendment 302, be able to gain employ
ment without haring to beg for union membership!
302 TAKES AWAY NONE OF
LABOR’S JUST RIGHTS
It merely provides that no worker can be FORCED to
join a union against his will or be FIRED because he
does join a union.
Vote 3021 X Yes

HOUSEWIVES ASK RETAILERS
HELP IN BRINGING THE
MEAT PRICES DOWN
Omaha housewives invite the
cooperation of meat retailers in
their buyer’s strike. It is clear
that if retailers would cooperate
by refusing to stock meat at the
present inflated wholesale prices
the price situation could be crack
ed in short order.
Frankly, the retailer and con
sumer both stand to lose from in
flated prices. High prices restrict
consumer purchasing power and
retailers quickly feel the pinch
while consumers lose because the
value of their dollar shrinks.
Housewives can and will bring
prices down but retailers could ra
pidly accelerate the downward
spiral by supporting their strike.

chairman Housewives League

HAIR STYLES AND HATS
So often we hear women dis
gustingly exclaim, “I just can’t
wear these hats! I have been
trying for months to find a hat
but I look horrid in these new
shaped hats. I don’t know what I
am going to do!”.
The answer is simple. Just ar
range the hair to suit the hat.
The face, the hat and the hair
must combine to make a harmon
izing whole. In most cases we
find no fault with the face and
the hats are beautiful. What we
need is a simple re-arrangement
of the hair style.
Perhaps you have a high fore
head. The answer is bangs and
bangs of all varieties are the or
der of the day. ‘‘Forward moving”
waves or rolls of curls placed at
the front hair line, are very wel
If you need any help, why not
drop in and have a friendly chat
with us? Our staff of efficient
hair stylists are ever ready to
suggest and assist you in the ar
rangement of the latest and most
becoming hair styles.

the Fiddle Badly
A favorite recreation In onr town
is getting together in one or an
other’s home and making music.
There’s somebody at the piano; a
guitar; a fiddle player; and Molly
Birtles even has a harp!
What comes out isn’t the best
music in the whole work!. In fact,

nobody even thinks to question or
Because the spirit of harmony is
there—harmony between folks who
like each other’s company, who en
joy the simple, homey atmosphere
—with nothin? more exciting than
old songs, and a glass of moderate
beer or cider.
From where I sit, it’s a heap
more important to be a poor fiddle
player, than not to play at all.
More important to be a part of the
American scene—with its commu
nity music, home entertainment,
friendly glass of beer —than to
hold out for professional perfec
tion. (Besides, I like to play the
fiddle—even badly 1)
