BRITISH PURCHASE
COMMISSION MENTIONED
The N'AAJCP also said that aa
far as it is^ble.to learn, every
one of the (jualified Negro ap
plicants for employment with
the Hriti.sh Purchasing Comis-
sion at Washington has been
turiied down. During the hear-
before the Congressional com-
mitte on motion picture propa'
ganda, witnesses testified that
the^ Purchasing commission also
barred Germans, Jews and
South Irish from employment
there. Spokesmen for the Com
mission denied religious restric
tions, but said nothing about
color.
The NAACP told Churchill,
“You have with with unsurpM-
sed eloquence appealed to the
peoples of the world to help
Great Britain destroy Hitler and
Hitlerism and to keep freedom
ing the war, but the same free
dom from prejudice must be
manifested at the Peace Confer
ence. Unless such theories are
abandoned, other and more de
structive wars will follow as in
evitably as the night ^oeg thft
day.”
Ny answer has yet been re
ceived.

The eighth anual conference
will get under way Wednwday
evening with the executive ses
sion at the headquatera on 0
Street. Then follow in rapid sec-
cession the other meetings of the
group, including the big public
meeting on Friday night at
which time, A. A. Berle, assis
tant secretary of state, will be
the principal speaker.
Paul V. McNutt, of the Fed
eral Security agency, will speak
Friday afternoon.
Friday night’s dinner meet
ing will hear Walter White of
the NAACP; Mrs. Frances Pa
yne Bolton, congresswoman from
ted ‘v^ien whose names had not
b^D submitted at press time.
Orowing stronger as each year
bri^pi the conference to Wash-
t^&on, Mrs. Bethune proudly
peinta out that already there a/e
l^e 60Q women registered and
I>*id their fees for the meetings,
compared with 432 last year.
While most of the grogram
will be devoted to women speak
ers, many noted men will appear.
Of particular interest will be
the round table discussion which
brings before the body the color
ed heads of various government
departments in^o will answer
questions put them by the wo
men.
Government officals them
selves are looking forward to this
important conference which
brings together repmentatives
of more than 7Q variom Negro
organisations in a combined ef
fort where, as Mrs. Bethune so
aptly .phases it, “The 'We can
help the you and I solve many
of the problems confronting the

•ffeGRO DOCTOR REFUSED
^Second case of discrimination
pointed out to Mr. Churchill was
that of Dr. W^alter W. King of
New York City. In reply to ur
gent appeals recently made for
American doctors to come to En
gland to minister to the wound
ed there. Dr. King volunteered
through the American Red
Cross. He was informed by Dr.
0. D. Williams, Medical Admin
istrative Assistan of the Red
Cross, in a letter dated May 23;
“It is true that only white
citizens of the United States are
eligible for the Doctors for Bri
tain project. The American Red
Cross did not set the standards
which are being followed. Tljc
American Red Cro^ is acting
upon instruction.s and cannot de
viate from them.”
NO NEGRO BLOOD
The NAACP letter continues
“Touching appeals have been
made to Americans to contribute
their blood to blood banlts to be
sent to save the lives of men. wo
men and children in Greal Bri
tain who without such aid, would
die from grievous wounds infli
cted by Nazi bombs, jlnstruc-
tions have come to the United
States from Great Britain, we
are informed, that only ‘white’
blood is wanted. Does this mean
that English men, women and
children wuld prefer dying to
living, if the balance in favor of
life is non-Arjan blood?”
BANNED FROM WORK AT-
BASES
The fourth of the instances of
British race prejudice states that
reputable newspapers here have
reported that the British Govern
ment asked the United States
Government to refuse to send
any l^egl'ow, regardless of quali
fications, to hplp build naval aii^
air bases in islands of the Brirj
ish ’West Indies, and that the
charge w'as also made on the
floor of Congress.
The letter noted the denial of
the charges by the United States
Goieernment but said that “thqi
plain facts are'that visas are de
nied by British consulates- to
highly qualified American Ne
groes who wish to work in the
British Caribbean Islands. Other
means, subtle and otherwise,
are used to discourage American
Negroes from applying for
work at these places.
