When : patrons of the noted - Slim Jerkins Cafe" of Oakland. Calif, enter his now famous Blue Room . a large banner, in me California colors of blue and gold, with the words. "Double V" "Democracy at Home and Abroad." Mr. Jenkins, proprietor of the establishment, reports that much intereat is being manifested by both i races.

Dixon Is governor of Alabama, a Southern State having a population of 1.M9.097 white people and Negroes. 1 ) Governor Dixon refused to sign a contract with the "Defense Supplies Corporation" for 1. 750.0O3 yards of convict - msde osnaburg cloth as long as it contained a clause reading: "The seller In performing the work required by this contract shall not discriminate against any worker because of race, creed, color or national origin." To r.ewspsper men. Governor Dixon said that "his primary objection to the clause was the effect it would have under announced FEDERAL POLICY." To the New Vcrk agent for the corporation he rcte:j "X will not pnr.it" the State of Alabama to be subject to the whim of ;any Federal agency, and I will not permit the employes of the State to be placed in a position where they muat abandon the principle of1 segregation or loe their jobs. . . Under cover of this particular clause contained in war contracts, the Fair Employment Practice Committee has been operating to break down this same principle of segregation of races, to force Negroes and white people to work together, to lnter - mmgle with each other, and even to bring about the situation where white employes will have to work under Negroea." Frank Dixon meets the lue squarely. The last eight years the campaign has been in progress to "Recon - ; struct" the South. It is a national "Democratic" party campaign now.; as well as Republican. The so - called ar.ti - !ynchir.g bill, the acti - pol! - tax agitation, the admission of Negroes into State - supported colleges. the demand for Negroes on ;uris. have fcen parts, phases of it. One - fifth of the white people of South Carolina work In cotton mills, and two - thirds of. those workers are white women and girls. j Many, if not most, of these mills have w - r defense contracts. j Southern senators and representatives, darzled and blinded by the sights of gifts, subsidies, offices, have forgotten to defend the South and State rights. Never a word has the President spoke egaicat this campaign. A, 'word from him would have storped it. From the White House, from' the President's wife, has streamed propaganda for the anti - segregation campaign. The issue comes closer to home, to the HOMES of Southern white people, than questions of "labor." gasoline, power developments, offices.! other questions. The question is whether or not the Southern States shall be a ' 1 1.1 - n Cjk.1 X - - ! Truly. Governor Dison saja that the two races have been getting; on wej together until now. j The President, leader of tha "Democratic" party. f.l not speak, but speech proceeds out of the White Hou. It is his right to think! differently from Governor Dixon, if he does. It Is his wife s right to differ In opinion with Alabama and to express iu 'Governor Dixon meets the Issue squarely. I The South is without a national party to defend it The Southern States can in lMt elect Presidential electors r.ot bound to vote for candidates of either "national" party. In the E3ec - ; ; toral College they can have the baiaxce of power and bring parties to their knees. j i la that way they can fibt and defeat the New Reconstruction.'
