C. G.—I have been married 31 ,
months and can’t make up my j
mind to stay with my wife. I
love her but seems like I can’t
stay there and be satisfied. I tell
her I am going to do better and
as soon as I leave her, I go right
back to the woman I used to go
with. I know I don’t love thl3
woman and I want to know what
to do to leave her alone?
Ans: Spend your evenings in
the presence of your wife *nd
the temptation to visit the other
■woman will not be so great.
Should your money run short, the
other woman would suddenly
lose all interest in you. You love
your wife—change your ways be
iore it is too late.
Z. C. B.—I am strongly con
sidering selling the old home
place as I am an only child and
Y am permanently located here
in the city in a home of my own. J
It requires too much of my time
going back and forth looking af- j
ter the property. Would it be
wise to sell?
Ans: There is no reason why
you should not dispose of the
property if you find it a burden
and worry. Put it up for sale.
It won't be difficult to find a
buyer as the property is very
desirable and in a good location.
N. O, L.—I am coming to you.
"hoping you can help me with my
girl friend. She is a nice girl in
•every respect but she likes to
drink and when she drinks, she
Tuns around with men. I want
you to let me know what to do
about her ?
Ans: Don't take her seriously
as long as she drinks and runs
around. She couldn’t be in love
■with you and behave in this man

ner. Insist on her going on the
water wagon else you had better
look for a new girl friend on
which to center your interest.
F. I.—My husband and I have
been separated two months just
because his mother and I couldn’t
get along. His mother said
as long as she lived, he was go
ing to listen to what she said
and after she passed, I could
take over. What am I to do?
Ans: Get in touch with your
husband and have him come
where you are to live. You can
find happiness if you live in an
apartment away from his folks
but a divorce is inevitable if you
return to him there in his
mother’s home.
P. C.—I am having lots of mis
fortune here lately. A man is try
ing to buy the place where I’m
renting. He has a place of his j
own but dislikes us very much. |
Is there anything we can do to
keep him from getting it?
Ans: No. not unless you swing ^
a deal and buy the property your
self. You are only renting and
the owner has perfect right to
sell at any time and to any one
whom he choses.
B. N. C.—I correrponded with
a fellow from Chicago fro 18
months. He convinced me that
he was serious and asked that
I come there and we would get
married. I made all my arrange
ments to wed and arrived in Chi
cago the 15th of July. We were
to marry immediately. He put it
off. day by day for a week so I
packed my thinsrs and came
home. Did I do right?
Ans: Indeed you did. He did
not live up to his promises and
you were wise to break away as
you did and return home. Con
sider the engagement broken. It
worked out for the best as it j
would have been a big shock had
you proceeded with your plans
only to find out that he did not
love you.

A Labor I rogram
Against Intolerance
Assistant Secretary of Labor
“The Commission holds to the
faith that if people are exposed
to the inner truth of life of a part
icular group, they will gradual
ly build up respect for and under
standing of it.”
The above quotation is taken
from the recent report of the dis
tinguisheb Commission on Free
dom of the Press headed by Rob
ert M. Hutchins, Chancellor, Uni
versity of Chicago. In the Com
mission report it applied of
i course, to be the publication, radio
and motion picture industries
with respect to faithful, factual,
and representative portrayals of
social and ethic groups. But even
out of context this particular
statement has pertinent applica
tion to the problems and respon
sibilities of the labor movement
in connection with religious and
racial tolerance.
We have spoken a lot of gen
j eralities about racial prejudices
| and religious intolerance in the
labor movement; some brave
words have been uttered; count
less resolutions have been passed;
here and there some progress has
been made. One cannot help but
wonder, however, how much, in
terms of the practical, work-a
-day world of the trade union
, members, it all means.
A Negro member of the UAW,
telling his story in the April 1947
issue of Ammunition, organ of
the educational department of
that union, thinks that workers,
when they go into the plant,
“bring their prejudices with
them.” But, he adds, “in our un
j ion they learn.” In his shop, he
, felt, the program of the fair prac
, tices committee was taking hold.
I “down in the ‘hearts of men and
Is thi3 a widespread or even
fairly frequent experience ? I
doubt it. The organized labor
I movement currently constitutes
about 16 per cent of the adult
population and it is reasonable
to assume that it carries within
it a replica of the pattern of
thinking which characterizes the
! population as a whole. If this is
true, then we do indeed bring our
prejudices with us not only into
our plants but into our stores, of
fices, school rooms, and other
places of work. And the resolu
1 tions, while they indicate the
I fundamental decency and pro
grasaivism of the labor moveii
ment cannot alone fulfill their ob
We must implement the resolu
tions with a painstaking and
workable program. We start with
one advantage: the character of
unions themselves. While union
members may be subject to the
many racial and religious pre
judices of the general adult popu
lation: they meet regularly, they
are banded together for a com
mon objective and purpose, they
too have the benefit of well-est
ablished means of communication.
Labor Reports
I suggest only the board out
lines of a program which is fexi
ble enough to be adaptable to lo
cal needs. I start with the pre
mise that no effort to combat
and eventually to eradicate racial
and religious prejudice in the
labor movement must be a part
of the general program for work
ers’ education. Workers’ educa
tion classes which present, objec
tively and accurately, interesting
lectures on the following general
subjects should be developed in
very locality:
1. The contributions of various
religious and racial groups to the
American community and to the
labor movement itself.
2. The origin and development
of the races of mankind.
3. The origin and development
of religions and religious groups.
4. A frank discussion of myths
and slanders connected with rac
ial and religious groups.
Such lectures could be followed

up with talks by religious and
racial leaders of the community
talks which would be built around
the economic and social problems
of the particular group. Granted
the reasonable success of such a
program, its scope could be ex
panded. The labor movement of
the community officially should
help initiate and participate in
similar programs for the locality
as a whole, through such organ
i ized groups as parent-teacher as
sociations and adult education
Looking at the articles in this
series in prevent issues of Labor
Reports, I find a common thread
of agreement: intolerance in gen
eral is a threat to labor; intoler
ance on the part of labor itself is
a movement toward self-destruc
tion. Labor must diminish the
discrepance between their resolu
tions and their actions against in
tolerance. The mighty organized
will of the free American trade
union movement, which ih the
past has been harnessed to count
less social and economic reforms,
must again take the lead.
As in the past, it will* be a
manifestation of the development
and growth of the movement—
true growth which comes from a
stirring of the roots. And that is
why, in discussing the fight a
gainst in tolerance. I stress local
activity so heavily.

When Vaby reaches the ages of
5 or 6 months, he’s apt to snow a
desire to feed hiniself. If your
baby reaches for his own spoon or
cup, it’s a wise'idea to encourage
him. Show him how to hold his
tiny spoon . . . help to grip his cup
—and then let him enjoy his inde
pendence. Of course, he’ll soon
iearn. 1
During the learning process, you
may want to feed baby at more
frequent intervals—to make sure
he gets the right amount of food.
Each one of the foods recommended
to you by your doctor plays an
important part in baby’s growth
and development, you know.
Milk has been called man’s most
complete food—but even milk does
not supply all the essential food
nutrients. Therefore, early in
baby's life—other foods must be
introduoed. For instance: Cod liver
oil for vitamin D . . . orange juice
for vitamin C. Solid foods—cereals,
strained vegetables and fruits
should J)e added as soem as your
baby qan handle them. Meat, too,
is an important addition to baby’s
diet, because it is so rich in pro
teins, niacin and iron. Then too,
meat has a different texture from
baby’s other foods . . . and by
feeding meat early in baby’s life,
you acquaint him with one of the
good foods he’ll be eating all his

NEW YORK — Turner Smith,
head of the U. S. Department of
Justice’s Civil Rights Section,'has
been urged to “restore civil rights
in Fort Lee and Cliffside, New
Jersey where for two successive
Sundays police and Palisades
Park guards have main tained a
Mississippi-tyle reign of terror.”
The request for federal inter
ventioin same Rowland Watts,
acting National Secretary of the
Workers Defense League when
the New Jersey attorney general
failed to act.
"On August 3 eleven members
of an interracial group were beat
en up and then arrested for mere
ly exercising their civil rights,”
Watts wrote Smith. "Seven were
arrested at the pool’s entrance
after being refused admittance.
The other four were arrested out
side the Park while picketing and
distributing leaflets protesting the
pool s ban on Negroes. Members
of the group not arrested were
also manhandled.
"Among the seven seized at the
pool’s entrance was our news ed
itor, James Peck, who was blood
ied up by a Park guard whil two
policemen were hauling him in
to police car. Inside the police
car, right in front of Peck, a
I policeman blackjacked Morris
Horowitz, who also arrested.’’
Watts recalled how, thg pre
vious Sunday, six members of the
group were manhandled and for
cibly deported to New York and
how Samuel Scott, a Negro, wa3
blackjacked. He also pointed out
that on both occasions Irving
Rosenthal, the pool’s owner and
Fred Stengel. Fort Lee police
chief, supervised operations.

Isn’t it amazing the amount of
real knowledge small children ac
cumulate and retain? The other
morning my two sons helped mete
prepare breakfast, and, when I
started making toast, I asked 8 ,
year-old John to put the rest of the
brefd away. Well, David — only
5 years old — frery importantly
took the loaf from John, carefully
re-closed the waxed paper wrap
ping, and then put the loaf into
the bread box. ***. |
As he did so, I was amused to
hear him explain to John that the i
waxed paper wrapping kept the i
bread fresh and moist . . . and ,
that it should always be carefully
re-closed after the loaf has been
opened. David told John that j
"Mike”—the man who delivers for •
the bakery—had told him all about :
it. Well, I've explained it to my
children dozens of times — but it |
took Mike — idol of every child in
the neighborhood — to turn the
trick! . .if V - i
Later, at breakfast when the
boys served our cereal, John
noticed the inner wrapping on the
cereal box-and I explained to him
that while waxed paper keeps
moist products moist (such as
bread) it also keeps dry products
dry (such as cereals). Therefore
the lining in the cereal box should
be just as carefully closed as the
bread wrapper. I went on to tell
the boys that food manufacturer*
and bakers do their utmost to in
sure freshness in foods — but, of
course they can’t guarantee fresh
ness to us after we open our pack*
ages, therefore it is extremely im«
portant that we properly re-cloa*
the wrapper. It is important, too,
that wh remember airtight re-clo
sure can only be made when the ]
package has been opened carefully
without being tom. • -* ***, *
i Well, when I had finished ex*
plaining, the boys concluded (a*
aH we housewives already know)
that waxed paper plays a very
important role in helping to pro
tect our foods and in saving
montfy, too.
