   Galveston Sentinel (Newspaper) - August 5, 1933, Galveston, Texas                                PERISCOPE By J. M. BURR Following the general custom, it appears from some few quarters that the Negro "the last hired and   the, first fired," is beginning to feel the readjustment necessary in the carrying out of the NRA.   A Negro boyt reported to The Sentinel that he had been notified by his employer that his services would be discontinued shortly.   On questioning- the boy as to whether he had been receiving'| an adequate pay-he said that he had. been getting about $5.00 per week. While we believe that the Negro should bear his proportionate share of this recovery plan, we can not work ourselves around to believing that our employers would take any undue advantage of a Negro worker. Of course, our only advice to the ^.youth was that if everything else was equal, he should report the matter to Mr. Robert I. Cohen, who is in charge of the enforcement of the NRA codes. To our Negroes who are employed we would say that they should be patient and not complain under any necessary changes which might be put into practice in order that the NRA can be carried out 100 per cent in Galveston. Whatever disadk-vantages honestly brought about, are neccessary for them to encounter should be born with patience and cheerfully. That will be the Negro's contribution to , the general move, for^iprgsnprity as outlined by" ou^^eS'fe^l"1 l COOKING SCHOOL 18,9,10,11 'atvestori Negro Business Me'n and Industrial Workers was a magnificent display of what might be done in Galveston among Negroes if such men as Mr. Webb will just lead out. There is no doubt about it Galveston, so far as the Negro is concerned, needs a New Leadership. The meeting called by Mr. Webb heard the NRA explained and all went away better able to interpret his individual contribution to the general prosecution of the NRA. Mr. Robert I. Cohen, Postmaster York, and Attorney Dariouset were the speakers from the white group. Mr. Webb should be encouraged and supported in his organization by all Negroes in Galveston. He is certainly being encouraged by the white people of the city. The meetings of this organization are held each Tuesday at th� C. W. Webb furniture store. Mr. Webb is ready to answer any question pertaining to the work and objectives of his organization. Robertson's Drug Stores are working strictly in accord with the NRA, according to Mr. Robertson. He stated that it was necessary to arrange the working hours of his help and lo employ one additional worker, all of which he has done. Other Negro businesses have done likewise.. The Cozy Cleaners "Mickey Deware" has also rearranged his working hours for his help and met the requirements of the NRA. � C. W. Webb furniture store went on the NRA plan last Tuesday morn-j ing and Mr. Webb states that   the | plan works fine so far.   Others will j fall in line, we are sure, if they have not already done so. JUDGE NORTON ORDERS NEW TRIAL FOR SCOTTSBORO YOUTH DURING FALL TERI REFUSES FRAMED BOYS HABEAS CORPUS j NEW YORK GITY.-In. ordering the Scbttsboro boys to., a sfiew lynch trial in October, Judge James E. Horton is attemtit-j ing to prevent the release of the nine innocent Scottsboro Negro jboys on bail. This, was reveajed by the I, L. J3. today when it was announced that previous to Horton's Florida vacation General George W- Chamlee, I. L. D. attorney in Chattanooga, left with him the habeas corpus writs demanding that bail be set, with the understanding that he would set a date for hearing. Instead of setting a day for the Rearing to set bail, which under Alabama Taw'he is forced to grant to the boys following his decision "that the evidence preponderates in their favor," NY OFFERS SPECIALS DURING AUGUST The attention of our readers is called to the ad of the Texas Cities GaS$Company, looal public service utility.
