And they had no better sense than to sit like a dog hoping to deserve a bone till the U. S. snapped her fingers and the obedient subject jumped into it. Why, one might ask, would they bark only when the U.S. says "oark!" Like the dog, could the possibility exist that they are merely responding to their master's call? Oh, perhaps this a most grotesque thought and we might tend to YAOUNDE, (Hsinhua) - close our eyes to whats going on Cameroon and Zaire in a joint here.

We must remember it was not the communists who tried and successfully disenfranchised the black vote; those were racists who did that. It is racists in Boston who are "cuttin up and actin' the fool," not communists. Moving it further to the point, we must if 'spect' means 'see' and 're' means 'again', then 'respect' means to look again."

That's why the dawn comes before the high noon sun," he said. "How are defendant failed and refused to pay Mrs. Wooten the $1.90 an hour minimum wage applicable to domestic workers at that time and failed to keep the required hours and other conditions of employment. The defendant allegedly refused to pay the back wages after the Labor Department sought to obtain voluntary compliance with the law. Minimum wage and overtime pay provisions were extended to domestic workers for the first time under FLSA amendments effective in May, 1974. The suit seeks a judgment enjoining the violations alleged and restraining the defendant from withholding $177.50 aUegedly due Mrs. Wooten in back wages, and an additional equal amount as liquidated damage. Different Ballgane . . . Different Tactics Mrs. Margaret Bush Wilson, the national chairwoman of the NAACP told a group of law students at Duke University on Tuesday that the tactics used in the civil rights struggle must be changed from the earlier ones. Citing that the trend on racism has shifted from overt to institutional, she said, "its a different ball game. . .so we must have different tactics.

According to Farrakan, Muhammad knew that the United States would never give into his demands for ten states for an exclusively black state. ' He wanted to show you that your're getting nothing for your labors and suffering here," the minister continued." He wanted to show you, black man, that you don't have to go around (See FARRAHAN, Page 4) The State of Blach America it WASHINGTON, D. C. -"Many qf the gains blacks made over the past decade were either wiped out or badly eroded in 1975 and the portents for the future are not encouraging," the National Urban League declared here Wednesday, January 28, as it issued a report, ' The State of Black America." Noting that no mention of black citizens had been made in either the President's ' State of the Union" message or in the Democratic response from Senator Muskie, Vernon E. Jordan, Jr., Executive Director of the National Urban League, called on all the Presidential candidates during this election year ' to discuss openly and honestly with the American people" the problems of blacks and the poor as outlined in the League's report. - The League warned that the absence of overt discontent in the cities did not mean that the problems did not continue to exist and that the future of the nation is ' bound-up in how it deals with these problems." Included among the recommendations, offered .by the League were a full employment policy that assures decent jobs for all; an income maintenance system that alleviates economic hardship and replaces the present welfare system; and housing, health and education programs "that go beyond rhetoric to bring our nation closer to a prosperity that includes all of its citizens.' Among the indicators citied by the League to show that blacks lost ground in 1975 were the following: There was a further decline in middle income families, continuing a trend that between 1973-74 saw these families decrease from one-fourth of the total of black families to one-fifth - Black family income is only 58 per cent of white family income, representing a drop from which represents a decline to, 61 percent in 1969. The official black employment rate for blacks remained virtually unchanged at 14.1 per cent for the first three quarters of 1975, while the unofficial rate - which includes people not counted in the official figures - was a constant 26 per cent. Thus, from the beginning of the year, one out of every (See BLACK AMERICA, Page 1 1 THE NATION'S YOUNGEST biffcity mayor, ATUnti mayor Maynard Jackson, at 35 it planning and mapping to Mk re-election in a city in which whites have become the minority h recent years, but which hat avoided much of the downtown blight which ha affected other cities.
