Galveston Sentinel (Newspaper) - August 5, 1933, Galveston, Texas Periscope by j. 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 Era. 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 . Robert i. Cohen who is in charge of the enforcement of the Era 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 Era can be carried out 100 per cent in Galveston. Whatever disadvantages honestly brought about Are necessary for them to encounter should be born with patience and cheerfully. That will be the negro s contribution tothe general move for As outlined by of is fel"1 l cooking school 18,9,10,11  at Estori negro business me n and Industrial workers was a magnificent display of what might be done in Galveston among negroes if such men As .
