‘‘Who knows—in this very Con-

Hoiiorahle Earl B. Dickey.son of
the Fair Practice Emp4oymeiit
Commission of the Federal Gov-
ei^iment in his address before the
National Conference of Negro
Youth last Friday in the nation’s
Capitol. Over 3,000 youth aiul a-
dnlt listeners cheered the brilliant
attorney as he called for the unity
of all lovers of- liberty jn the fight
agninst Hitlerism. “Unity is a trap
against the forces of Hitlerism,’’
Dickerson dpelarel, “and Yonth
must achieve that unity — Each
Anti-Hitler force standing alone is
broken alone—Anti Hitlerism is a
bond of great vitality — Negro
youth must, therefore, lay aside
its mistrust of white youth for’the
sake of this unity. We must rea
lize that those fighting against
Talniadgo of Georgia are fichtins; 1
