Decent Homes for Negroes

Estate Boards has recently urged that better
housing facilities for Negroes be built wherever
needed in the United States.
This suggestion is one that should have been
made long ago. However, the war and the in-
flux of workers into metropolitan districts, has
brought about an awareness that never prevailed
before of the inadequacies of housing facilities.
The building of better housing facilities for
Negroes cannot be worked out on a National
plan because of the different economic means
in each community. Thus, it must be conducted
on a local basis. However, plans must be start-
ed now by all communities, so that construction
can begin as soon as the war is over.
Many questions must be solved by the com-
munities, before definite plans can be made.
Adequate financing for housing and rental
properties must be secured, before any plans
can be drawn up. Financial institutions must
no longer be reluctant to purchase mortgages
on Negro property, for in spite of the fears

of financial institutions, statistics now prove
that the Negro is a good economic risk.
Community planning boards will have to
secure responsible builders before construction
can be started. It should be the duty of all
members of the planning boards to encourage
builders to undertake the construction of Negro
Each project must include private homes as
well- as apartment houses. The crowded condi-
tions that prevail in tenement districts today
will not be obliviated if all Negroes in a given
area are crowded into a few well built apart-
ments. Only private homes will insure the best
sanitation facilities, lack of germ hazards, and
the elimination of crowded living conditions.
Now that incentive and problems have been
presented by the National Association of Real
Estate Boards, each community should take it
upon itself to investigate immediately the living
conditions of the Negroes in their areas, and to
make plans to eliminate any crowded or hazard-
ous situations that exist. -Angie Miller

I'd Bather Be Bight

NEW YORK, June 14-The bites we have
taken out of the perimeter of France are still
small, but it would be a mistake to embark on
a doleful arithmetical calculation, to the effect
that an advance of 20 miles in 10 days means
an advance of only 200 miles in 100 days, etc.
That is not the way it goes.
There has been a certain dull, arithmetical
school of opinion steadily at work in this war,
which has calculated for us that if we take
10 Japanese-held islands in 10 months, it will
require 400 years to regain them all. The avia-
tion branch of this school of thought used to
figure that if 200 airplanes could bomb one Ger-
man town in one day, 200,000 airplanes could
raid 1000 towns in a day, and pretty soon Ger-
many would run out of towns.
The home economics department of this cult
used to prove that if we drafted 1,000,000 farm-
ers we would starve because, figuring at 500
bushels of wheat per farmer, there goes almost
the whole crop. Sometimes it would show how
we had lost the war because of the number of
airplanes which had not been built by striking
This counting of islands and men and air-
planes and miles is the mark of the good, solid
mind, with no nonsense about it, and no imagi-
nation, either. This type of mind is admirable
for taking care of estates, but it is almost use-,
less in war; for, in war, about all you learn
from experience is how to lose.
It is the strategist with the sense of the mo-
ment who wins wars; not the man who can
tell you how an existing situation resembles a
previous one, but the man who can tell you
how it differs.
T HE INVASION of France has introduced a
number of new factors into the war situa-

a police problem to Hitler. Now he has become
a military problem. His activities, on railroad
trackage, etc., used to have a nuisance value;
now they have a military value; for his work
need no longer be vaguely general, it can affect
precise and specific miiltary situations. The
saboteur has become a soldier.
3. The invasion lays the basis for a new
political appeal to the people of Germany.
After Stalingrad, Hitler was no longer able
to offer the Germans victory. After the in-
vasion of France, he is no longer able to
offer them stalemate. It is no good for the
Germans to brace themselves for an endur-
ance contest any longer. With the invasion
the war ceases to be an endurance contest.
It heads for a showdown. Thus latent poli-
tical questions in Germany become acute
questions, there is now a time limit on Ger-
man thinking ,and the beginning of a crisis
4. The Quislings have been content, so far,
to keep part of their people neutral. Now they
must make their people fight the Allies. This
they cannot do. Yet they must try, they cannot
help themselves. Out of the stresses thus created,
new revolutionary situations must and will
It is by our exploitation of these and other
changes that we shall win, not by a slow two-
miles-a-day -toward -Berlin alone. Our general
staffs are obviously thinking in these terms.
We civilians, too, might stop counting on our
fingers, but, lifting up our eyes, see in its true
dimensions, the grandeur of our enterprise.

WASHINGTON, June 14-War Department
officials are laughing behind their hands at
the fact that Military Intelligence, supposed
to know all ab'out everything going on behind
enemies lines and inside our own lines, chose
D-Day to move their offices. In the Pentagon
Building, where Military Intelligence, or G-2,
is housed, moving day was called "G2's D-Day.'
They "invaded" their new offices.
But never could they have chosen a worse
day to move than the Allied D-Day. Other
War Department officers kept calling up G2,
asking for information.
"Sorry," said the operator, "but the tele-
phones are all torn out. G2 is moving."
Furniture was being moved down corridors,
files of secret information were being shunted
from one place to another. Everything was
confusion on the one day which meant most to
the war.
Apparently, Military Intelligence, supposed to
know everything, didn't know when the big
day we were to cross the English Channel was
Reason for Crackdown on Eire . .
Now it can be revealed why President Roose-
velt was so tough in his crackdown on the
Irish regarding the removal of Axis diplomats
from Eire.
It long had been planned, though a strict
secret, to land on the Cherbourg peninsula. To
reach it, many U. S. troops had to steam through
the Irish Sea and through waters adjacent to
This was because the bulk of U. S. army
camps have been located in the west and
northwest of England. While some of the
troops were moved in advance to the Chan-
nel ports, a lot of them had to swing down
through the Irish Sea around the tip end of
Wales and then toward Cherbourg.
Naturally, the President wanted no scrap of
information regarding the early passage of
landing barges through the Irish Sea to leak
out in any manner, shape or form.
As it later happened, the invasion probably
was no surprise to the enemy, partly because
of the false invasion news dispatch, partly be-
cause of the fact that the armada, after get-
ting all ready, had to be held up one day because
of bad weather.
Capital Chaff . .
You can expect Admiral Nimitz to replace
Admiral King as Chief of Naval operations most
any time . . . Chief of Staff General Marshall
was able to go to bed and sleep soundly the
night of the invasion, for two reasons: (1) He
had done his work so well in advance; (2) he
has gone through life working intensely during
his work periods, then relaxing completely dur-
ing his rest periods.
