Birmingham. — Returning from
a two-week trip to Mexico City,
Miss Esther V. ‘ Cooper, Adminis
trative Secretary of the Southerji
Negro Youth Congress, reported
that^ “Youth throughout the Hem
isphere -are organizing—and orga
nizing fast—to help defeat Hitler
ism.’ ’ Miss Cooper was one of four
United States representatives who
attended an International Youth
F tanning Conference in Mevxico
City from October 25th to 27th.
Other d&lcg'ates from the United
States were: Frances Williams and
Marie Reed of the American
Youth Congress; John Darr of the
National Intercollegiate Christian
Council; Della- Otavis of the In
dustrial Girls Division of the Y.
W. C* A. Twenty-five young peo
ple represented jLatin American
youth organizations.
The Coh£4renee decided on a
plan of immediate action which in
cluded the following: a Chrbtniss
Week of Sacrifices for the Fight
ing Armies; raising thousands of
dollars and sending medical sup
plies, clothes and cigarettea for
youth in Britain, Sovielt Russia
and China; organizing a large in.
ternational anti-Hitler youth con
ference in the near future.
While In Mexico City Miss Coop
er was escorted to many points of
interest by Mr. Alvin Jones, a
Southern Negro Youth Confess
member from New Orleans who is
studying art there on a Rosenwald
fellowship. The uelegates had an
opportunity to meet many govern
ment officials, and held an inter
esting interview with Vincente
Ixtmbardi Toledano, Head of the
Federation of Latin Ameriean
Hampton Air Idiots

Hampton, Institute, Va. —Stu
dent pilots in Hampton Institute’s
civilian pilot training p!r(^ram
had faint glimmer of hope recent
ly that at last they would be able
to put their flying talents 4o use
in defending America with the U.
S. Navy._ . ,
But the joy ■ was short living
and the students found that they
Svere merely' the ivictims of ano-
■other Navy “boner.”
It all started when the Hampton
undergraduates in- the , Civilian
Aeronautics Administration spon
sored fjying courses received lei-
ters from Ideutenant dark Buck-
nam, USNR, of the Naval Avia
tion Cadet Selection ^ard at
AnAcostia.-0. C., AAking thmt they

to four years of technical training
in the following skills; Carpentry,
Automobile Mechanics, Masonry,
Painting and Interior Decorating,
Tailoring, Jingfineeringf*piumbing
and Steamfitting, Home Econom

Science. •
General Educatioii Trends
Necdssita** AdTmcemeBt
The Board Trustees and th® Ad
ministration of St. Paul’s School
have recognized for some tim.e the
rapidly moving trend towajrd high
er standards on the part of educa
tional agencies generally. They
have carefully studiM and weigh
ed the question of advancing the
training of the work at St. Paul.
Extensive investigatioi- was li^^n
in 1939, as the school was then
faced with problem of raising the
teacher-trainin-g work to met the
present requirements of the State
Board of EducAtion or probably
discontinuing such training. The
latter course was agreed upon*
with the understanding that spec
ial ivovisioos be made to improve
the work in the industrial division,
emphasizing training specifically
designed to eq^ip young men and
women for emi^oyment as artisans
in their chosen trades. In this con
nection Mr. J, T. Thornton, form
erly director of industries at the
school for 12 yeArs, and more re*
cently vice prineipal of the R. T.
