Rodgess advertising manager a our policy we array ourselves As the parties of no individual group or party. In defending the great cause of human rights we wish to derive the assistance of races religions and parties. Assenting to the self evident truth maintained in the american declaration of Independence tha All men Are created qual and endowed by their creator with certain inalienable right among which Are life Liberty and the Pursuit of happiness we shall strenuously contend for Equality of justic and the right of life Liberty and happiness unhampered by Petty prejudices and for the political Freedom of the negro.

M. The digest by Floyd j. Calvin a dying Era the Era of race hate prejudice a d proscription is dying in Amer ick. The reason it is dying is because the prime promoters of in a tolerance bigotry and unfairness on the one hand and those who would blithely ignore gloss Over of downright refuse to recognize the rights of our Darker minority Are dying themselves. An instance of this is the pass ing of former senator fess and of Arthur Brisbane. Fess represented the latter school the highly place and All powerful who would dismiss the most deserving coloured Man with a wave of the hand. Fess did just that during his Brief career As Republican National chairman. Brisbane represents or was the chief promoter of the former school the big High and mighty nordic really a Kun Kluwer at hear who prostituted science and learning to the base ends of brutalizing cowering and other Wise humiliating and discouraging twelve millions of his fellow Citi Zens. But the negro race in America outlived slavery and now it is witnessing the slow but certain passing of a Well that has blocked their path. The younger White people Are not interested in Bris Banes or fess theories on the negro in either the prize fight Industry or politics. The Roosevelt administration revolutionized the Hoover tradition on the negro and his participation in his govern ment. Dan Parker who worked under Bisbane promoted Joe Louis in the Hearst papers in spite of having an assignment j from Brisbane to write a Gorilla i Story about Joe. Twenty five years from today our youth now in their teens will be Able to stand up and be counted on their merits As men and women. But by that time Many More funerals will have been held. A Bright spot a Bright spot in negro life to Ward the close of the old year and at the beginning of the new is the marvelous record being made on Broadway by Bill Rob Inson and cab Calloway. Here is a combination of youth and age that is truly amazing. Bill now 58, who doctors claim has legs of a sixteen year old boy and cab not yet 30, who is a vet eran of the big time a team ing up of two coloured men making a smash hit not equalled in the memory of current supper club Habi tues. The following excerpt from Esquire Magazine makes acceptable the most extra ant Praise which May be heaped upon the two har Lem idols Bill Robinson or cab callow7 would make a Good show by her self but when you have these of o s geniuses along with a Hundred As sorted entertainers something. And ill you. A a Lka Ivi. Of two Vii Ara eaten or drunk. The current motion club floor show at Broadway and forty eighth Street is one of the Best we have Ever seen in club or theatre. There Isnit a movement in the entire two hours that is off beat and if you get out of the place without catching some of the perfect rhythm that is a heritage of the race you Are past help. A combination of any three numbers on the program of Twenty one would make a full show. So you can imagine the 1crescendo of the total. And unlike most of these places the food is excellent. We dont see How they do it.". Negro business Outlook. The out lock for negro business in the new year appears to be Good. From different authorities a. C. Spaulding Harry h. Pace major r. R.

Much educational work has to be done to get the negro masses to form a better appreciation of the meaning and value of business and much training and experience must be acquired before the negro can become generally successful in the Small business Field. For instance we simply do not under stand the handling of Money. We know neither the mechanics philosophy nor the value of Money. Broadly speaking we dont know How to employ a Dollar collect its wages and yet keep the Dol Lar. Not knowing these fundamentals we Are still having All kinds of trouble at the Bottom of the ladder. We have a few Shin ing examples of our ability to overcome these Petty handicaps and climb the ladder of Success but if we Are to have More successful businesses and business men we have simply got to find away to help the Little Man. We Are getting help however. The Chain stores who take in coloured boys and initiate them in to the mysteries of the handling of pennies Are among our Best assets. The coloured Man or woman who will go out of his or her Way to spend a few cents with a minister who makes it a prac Tice to give Short talks on econ Omic subjects now and then and then to practice what he preacher by trading with his own loners who Arf in in a Oto Man or woman who will give a coloured Man a Chance again and again even if they do not come up to expectations Are doing their bit.
