Separate Negro Culture in 20's
Was Undesirable, Hayden Says

"The Black Renaissance or New
Negro Movement of the early 20's
which tried to establish a separate
Negro culture was neither desirable
or possible," Robert Hayden said in
his lecture on Negro poetry entitled,
"I Too Sing America" at Rackham.
Amphitheatre Monday.
Before "The New Negro Move-
ment" a well-informed group of poets
existed but their work was of minor,
interest. The best known of these-
was the transitional poet James W61
ton Johnson. He wrote not only' as
the old Negro writers, but also in the
spirit of the changing, new, chal-
lenging poets. His "Saint Peter Re-
lates an Incindent of the Resurrec-
tion Day" is a satire on American
professional patriots. In "Gods
Trombones" Johnson reaches the
"zenith of artistry." "In these poems
the imagery and beauty of Negro folk
speech is exemplifield," Hayden said.
The social background of the -Negro
movement led by Marcus Gravy was
characterized by violent ferment in
the black world. "Since the Negroes
shared in the filth of ,the trenches
and in the endless hardships land
frequent heartbreaks of World War
I, they felt they should have the
rights of citizenship," yden said.
Some advocated " back to Africa"
for equality and freedom.
Harlem was the center of the
Negro culture movement. "Opportun-
ity" and "Crisis," two Negro publi-
cations were the media for artists c
and intellectual expression. "The, New
Negro" by Lock was the bible of this
movement announcing to America
the artistic coming age.
Instrumental in winning audi-
ences for "The New. Negro rMove-
ment" was William Stanley Praith-

waite, noted anthologist. He wrote
lyrical; mythicism with no concern
for race.
"An outstanding lyrist of the
Movement and at the same time a
notable figure in poetry without re-
gard to race was Countee Sullen,"
Hayden emphasized. His most recent
book for juveniles is "The Lost Zoo.
In the next .lecture to be held at'
8 p.m. Monday in the Amphitheatre,
Hayden will discuss fiction written
by Negroes,

Congress May
Challenge New
Draft Dectston
Congressional comment indicatedf
today that legislators may take issue
with Manpower Commission Paul V.t
McNutt's decision that when pre-
Pearl.Harbor fathers are drafted af-
ter October 1 no consideration shalll
be- given to whether they have one,1
two, three or more children.-
Too few members were in the capi-
tal to permit an overall sounding of
congressional sentiment, but from
those here there was general criti-7
cism of McNutt's instructions to;
draft boards that fathers should be,
inducted "without distinction re-
garding the number of their depen-
dent children."
It directed that no fathers be
drafted until all single men within
a state had been exhausted, and that{
fathers - of only one child should be
taken before: fathers of two, fathers
of two before fathers of three, etc.
Pending in Congress now is a mea-
sure which would increase allowances
to dependents of fathers serving in
the armed forces. This would keep
the basic allowance to a wife at $50
a month, but would raise the pay-
ment for the first dependent child
from $12 to $18 a month and for each
additional child from $10 to $11.

County Minute-Men Are Asked
To Divert Energies to Defense

LANSING, Aug. 3.-(A')-State de-.
fense authorities today awaited con-
firmation of their expressed belief
that they have arranged amicably for
members of the Berrien county min-
ute men-self-trained in commando- I
type warfare-to divert their energies
to some authorized phase of the de-
f ense ef fort..
Capt. Donald S. Leonard, State,
Director- of Civilian Defense, said he
and other officials had conferred
with'Probate Judge Malcolm K. Hat-
field .of Benton Harbor, head of the
minute men, and that "misunder-
standings" had been cleared. Brig.
Gen. Thomas Colladay, commander
of the .1Michigan State Troops, and
Capt. Harold W. Mulbar, Chief of
the State Police DetectiongDivision,
participated in the meeting.
Leanord said Judge Hatfield was
informed. that while state officials
had highest confidence in the pa-
triotisn' and good intentions of the
minute .men;, there was no place for
them in the .civilian defense set-up,
that there, was no authorization for
such a group to function, and that in
event of enemy action the minute

men would not be allowed under mil-
itary law to bear arms.
He said he suggested that the
members individually join whatever
branch of the defense services was
most attractive to them, and that
he believed Judge Hatfield would
recommend this be done. He empha-
sized to the judge, he said, that he
had not ordered the minute men to
disband, despite themembers' belief,
and had no authority to issue such
an order. He said he disapproved of
unauthorized independent training
for gerrilla warfare.
