Carmichael Calk African Meet Delegates to Unity, Dedkatien ATLANTA, Ga. - Stokely Carmkhael, former chairman of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) urged delegates to the Congress of African People! held here this week to case aside tribalistic pettyness and unify under the ideological banner of Pan-Africanism. Carmichael's remarks were contained in a latter to the general conference body. The note, read by Howard Fuller, Mwalimu of Malsom X Libera tion University in Graensboao, during the Saturday evening session, explained Carmichael's absence from the meeting. The full text of the letter read before Fuller's keynote address on Pan-Africanism fol lows. It was dated Conakry, Guinea, August 17, 1970. "I hope this little message finds you all in the best of health and Blackness. My wife and I are deeply honored at your invitation. We regret that we will be unable to attend. But we had previously com mitted ourselves to other en gagements. I am very happy that the conference is taking a Pan-Africanist orientation. Personally I feel this is the only ideology for our people. We must elevate our struggle to Bond Sales Top Redemptions By $7 Million WASHINGTON, D. C. - Savings Bonds sales exceeded redemptions by $7 million in August. Sales of Series E and H Savings Bonds amounted to S3BB million last month - an increase of S4O million over August 1969 sales. Sales of E Bonds alone came to $377 million, 13 per cent above last August's $344 million. Series H Bond cash sales amounted to sll million, and exchanges of Series E for new H Bonds came to $lB million, sl4 million more than last August. The cash value of E and H Bonds, as of August 31, is $51,375 million. With the in clusion of Freedom Shares - withdrawn from sale on July 1 - holdings total $52,095 million, an increase of $53 million over July. E and H redemptions, at cost price, were $3Bl million - $77 million less than last month, and s6l million less than August 1969. In compari son with 1969 figures, redemp tions have decreased in 4 of the last 5 months. The interest bo nus, announced by Secretary Kennedy on August 25, is expected to stimulate sales and slow redemptions even more by encouraging owners to hold their Bonds to maturi ty or extended maturity. Series E Bonds purchases on or after June 1, 1970, when held to maturity of 5 years, 10 months, will receive a l / - percent bonus, payable at maturity, raising the yield to 5V4 percent from issue date to maturity. H Bonds bought on or after June 1, 1970, will yield ap proximately 5.12 percent for the first 5 years and 6 per cent for the remaining 5 years to maturity, providing an over all yield of 5V4 percent from issue date to maturity. Older E Bonds have also had yields improved by V 4 percent. Va. Conference Electoral Col. Holds Session RICHMOND - The Elec toral College of the A.M.E.

It includes all Black people and everyone knows all Black people are Africans. The ideology of Pan Africanism must seek a land base. Malcom X says, "that all revolutions are fought over the question of land." As Africans we all know . tbat Africa belongs to us. And until Africa is truly indepen dent and unified, the African will not be free. We in the United States cannot afford to be tribalistic, we form an important part of the African nation as do our brothers in the Carribean and our bro thers on the Continent. Black people must be uni fied. We have the historical duty to replace Justice on this earth and to crush into obli vion the perpetuation of injus tice and the disruption of world peace. We, the African, better than anyone, know the enemy of mankind. We know him. We must destroy him. In order to do that we must be clear thinking, dedicated, uni fied and willing to kill. We must have a clear ideology - slogans arouse the people, ideology guides them. Our ideology must be crystal clear in our minds. I hope that the conference is successful/ I hope that the dissention which is so rampant among our people will be swept away into an ocean of unity. Unity is paramount at this time. For the sake of our ancestors, for the sake of our rMn I W HONEYDEWS J CO|JE I PROPER PICKING GETS THE BEST FROM YOUR VEGETABLE GARDEN "Si'' - Taj ES''S ' I KwrejLdg n V PICK TOMATOES when firm and well colored but before they become dead ripe. If aphids or other insects are a problem, you can spray tomatoes with a non-persistent chemical like diar.inon up to day before harvesting. NKW YORK (ED)—For th> home-gardener, the difference be tween "ordinary" vegetables and mouthwatering delicacies depends upon when you pick them. You can help improve the taste and quality of vegetables by harvesting them at the proper stage of maturity. Ac cording to the garden experts at Geigy Chemical Corporation, signs of maturity vary with different vegetables and the particular plant parts you in tend to eat such as leaves, roots, fruits and seeds. Tomatoes, perhaps the favor ite of all garden vegetables, unborn, for the sake of our suffering masses scattered all over this world, may your congress inject a new feeling of unity among our people - which is essential to our world should be picked when they be come uniformly red. It usually takes four to six days for toma toes to completely ripen after they begin to turn red. Toma toes for table use should ,be picked before they are "dead ripe"—when they are still firm and well colored. However, when intended for canning or juice, they can be harvested at a much fuller stage of maturity. For sweet corn, pick wheil kernels are fully developed but before kernels begin to dent or shrink. After silks have dried and turned brown, check by flicking your thumbnail agains^ wide Black Revolution. AiW which this generation must bring about. My brothers and sisters may the African gods be with you at this conference, for I am sure we shall conquer a kernel. If milky fluid squirts out, the ear is ready; if liquid is clear, wait another week. Pick beans when pods arjp smooth, have an even Kreen color and, except for special long varieties, when they are three to four inches long. Pick them frequently, too—every few days is best. Leafy-type vegetables, like lettuce, should be picked while they are still crisp and succu lent. Check the number of days from planting to maturity, as listed on seed package, but allow for local weather conditions. Coloration is a good sign of ripeness. A rule of thumb for lettuce, tomatoes and most other vegetables is to compare them with the highest quality you might expect in the store. Pick things when they look best. Melons are a little tricky. Despite the widely accepted practice, thumping melons is of little help, unless you're highly skilled. A color change in the background of the fruit-when color turns light green or white -means flesh inside is matur ing. Root crops, like carrots and beets, can be sampled to deter mine proper time for harvest ing. When carrot color turns from white or yellow-orange to full orange, it's ready to eat. However, root crops have more flavor when pulled and eaten while still quite young, so don't yvait too long. You,'y 'have higher quality vegetables if you tend your jrarden right up to harvest time. Keep plants well-watered, weeded and insect-free. With a non-persistent insecticide like diazinon you can spray right un to harvest time. According to USDA-approved label' recommendations, you can use diazinon up until 10 days before harvesting for most Some, like sweet corn and tomatoes, can be sprayed right up to the day before pick ing, for pest-free good eating. without a doubt.
