As sistant Secretary of the Treas ury Robert A. Wallace this week told bankers they must take "positive action" to hire Negroes in order keep deposits of Federal money. He said that positive action meant "applying controls over personnel actions that are nor mally applied to any program that you want to succeed," in cluding clear statements in writing, frequently reiterated to recruitment sources, that the bank follows equal employment policies; recruitment among minority groups; help-wanted advertising in minority group publications as well as the gen eral press; contact with local schools to establish needed courses, and periodic review of minority employees' records to see that they can reach their highest capability. Speaking before the Ameri can Bankers Association Con vention in New York, Mr. Wal lace blamed the fact that there are not many Negroes employ ed by banks on "following the same old recruitment practices which have become a matter of habit over a period of many years." He said "this type of picture can be changed by posi- See BANKS 2A Walkout Staged In Protest of President Jas. Nabrit's Speech WASHINGTON, D. C. The 1 0 0-year-old Howard Univer sity, long a citadel of modera tion has split sharply over the Black Power issue, which pre cipitated the dismissal of 21 professors and students this summer. Last week as Howard's presi dent, Dr. James M. Nabrit, Jr., was addressing the student body and faculty of the univer sity, a band of students and professors walked out in pro test of Dr. Nabrit's stand on the Black Power issue. In a speech to the 11,000- member student body, Dr. Na brit strongly sanctioned the goals of the Black Power advo cates, but objected to the meth ods being used to obtain those goals. The 66-year-old university president told the students: » "There is a spirit of revolt at work which will not be satis fied until a new order is estab lished," he declared. "It is un fortunately true that Negroes have not reaped the full har vest of their expectations." This apparently did not pla cate the university's increasing number of Black Power advo cates who walked out on Dr. Nabrit's speech and assembled outside of Howard's Crampton Hall to hear dismissed profes sor and avowed Black Power advocate, Dr. Nathan Hare. Dr. Hare declared: "We've put up with this slave plantation for 100 years. Pro test and rallies are not enough," he continued, "you got to close down this place, and every stu dent and faculty member who See HOWARD 2A •pf V* ' ' #"2iS ■'' r ,f Hiilii i i JiwrriSrH" •> M UP EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE —Following the reactivation of the Board of Directors of the United Publishers held at the Chicken Box here, September 21, the above persons were Bacon St. Housing Project Given DHA Letter of Intent Ben Ruffin Delivers Address to Council on Human Relations (By YHAD GIVEN) Ben Ruffin, Executive Direc ter of the United Organization for Community Improvement, challenged members of the white community to do their "homework" on the problems that confront the Negro in Durham, and to "speak up and speak out now, or forever hold your peace." In a speech Monday evening to members of the Durham Council on Human Relations, Ruffin asked how many of them subscribe to the Carolina Times. "How else can you learn what's going on with the Black Man?", he asked. He instructed them to visit the Hayti haunts of the Durham Negro, "to get to know the Black community and its prob lems", and to speak out in sup port of Negro protest. 4nPl I w REV.
