Each cadet selects a course In trade or agriculture along with the military activities of the Junior Reserve Oflloers Training Course supervised by the U. 8. Army. Military discipline la maintained by the cadets under their own officers. Students come from all parts of the United States. School Strikes Miss Noma Jensen, one of the , assistant Held secretaries of the , NAACP, was sent Irst week by the national office to Gary, In diana, and Chicago and Evanston, Illinois, to investigate the high school strikes in those cities which have been staged, allegedly, for the purpose of ousting Negro stu dents from mixed schools. The NAACP has expressed the belief that the school strikes which broke out in the Middle West and in New York City, are part of a plan concocted by adults to fasten segregat'on as a patUrn upon Negroes in the North. The Association believes it unlikely that the students themselves would have staged these demonstrations without careful planning and support from their parents and community organizations committed to race - hate programs.' A gift of $5,000 to establish a permanent fund for financing the scholarships was made to the univer - "y by Joseph F.

Union "Influence" upon and Interference" with the selection of a bargaining representative is prohibited, thus opening the way for undue restriction of proper union activity of labor organisers. 5. Although the bill contains a desirable prohibition of a closed shop where Negroes are excluded from union membership, it apparently would permit a closed shop with Jim Crow and "Auxiliary" Negro locals. Moreover, a labor organization which 'excludes Negroes altogether, may become the "exclusive bargaining agent" for these excluded Negroes under the biU.

THE KEW YORK ACE Negro Nurses WiD Be Used In Veterans' Hospitab As Condidons Permit, Says Gen. In a letter to Mrs. Mabel K. SUupers, executive secretary of the National Association of Colored Graduate Nurses, General Omar N. Bradley, head of the Veterans' Administration, has indicated that op portunities lor assignment of Negro nurses in the 98 veterans' hospitals will be expanded "as sectional conditions permit," However, general policy of the Veterans' Administration, the letter also indicated, will continue to be governed by the customs and traditions of the locality Id which each institution is situated. The letter, Mrs. Staupers said, was part of an exchange of correspondence between the NACUN and General Bradley on the subject' of the integrated use of Megro nurses. In her reply she cited several communities wherein employment practices in civilian hospitals were far mors democratic than those existing in local veterans' hospitals. In California, for example, where education and employment is offered to Negro nurses on an integrated basis, the NACGN is still informed that Negro nurses applying to the Veterans' Administration are told that they will be considered only for jobs in southern institutions. Mrs. Staupers also mentioned cases of Negro nurses currently assigned to Veterans' Facilities in the South who have applied for transfers to communities like New York Deaoostratioii Against British In Cairo, Egypt CAIRO, Egypt Demonstrations, chiefly oh the part of students, for the Immediate withdrawal of British forces from Egypt and incorporation of the Sudan cs an Integral part of the country, coupled with Insistence upon Ab rights in Arab countries Including Palestine, were held hero over the weekend.

October 20. 1945 or New Jersey and who have been refused this privilege. According to General Bradley's letter, the present policy of the Veterans' Administration is still to employ Negro nurses only at five southern institutions: Tuskegee, Ala.; Ft Bayard, New Mexico; Ke - coughtan, Virginia; Waco, Texas; and Oteen, N. C. At the latter four, Negro nurses are used only on wards for Negro patients. At theses - hospitals, there exist vacancies "which have been allotted to Negro nurses.'' Mrs. Staupers has assured General Bradley that Negro nurses would willingly serve the veterans of their country; however, they would expect, that tho discriminatory barriers to this service be removed. "Negro nurses," she pointed out, "should not be expected to voluntarily affiliate themselves with s federal agency which continues to practice discrimination."
