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. - Woman’s Council -- (Continued from pagie one) Robert Williams of the Asbury M.'B. church. 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 ■Negro in America today.” requires 4 yards of 39 inch fabric for dresus and heart appli-que included -Charges Britain- ^Kk>ntinued from page one) •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. “This is all the more -incre^ dible in view of the fa’ct that -NOW OPEN - THE WONDER NEW CHINESE LAUNDRY Shirts 10c Overalls. 20c Pants 20c % WONDER have in stirring language de nounced the racial theories on which Hitler has built a sinister philosphy and a diabolic war machine.
