As Gas Coupon
Value Declines
Midwestern Motorists

With Mixed Peelings

with mixed feelings.
A preliminary survey here showed
fio concerted rush to buy gasoline be-
fore the coupons are devalued from
four gallons to three, although scat-
tered reports showed some extra pur-
chasing activity.
Predictions Were prevalent, how-
ever, for a speedup in business to-

manding "fill 'er up."
"It's pretty much business as usual,
so far," said B. H. Provis, pi'esident
of the Gasoline Retailers' Associa-
tion. "Most motorists are in the
habit, since gasoline rationing, of
kbeping their tanks full. Since most
automobiles have some supply of
gasoline, to fill up the tank doesn't
take as much gasoline as might be
Major oil companies, with adequate
supplies to meet emergency demands,
felt no unusual drain by service sta-
tions seeking to replenish depleted
supplies, the survey showed.
Instructions for enforcing the new
regulations have been issued to the
OPA's regional enforcement staff,
Rsegional Administrator Raymond S.
McKeough said today. They were
transmitted to district offices in Ili-
nois, Iowa, Nebraska, Wisconsin,

Hayden StudiesNegro Past, Culture

In an attempt to prove' that the-
Negro past reaches beyond slavehood
and that the black man's culture is
typically American, Robert Hayden,
University lecturer, has collected
samples of Negro history and folk-
lore in connection with the Federal
Writers' Project.
Travelling throughout Michigan
visiting libraries and museums, Hay-
den has come into contact with ex-
slaves in Detroit. From them . he
learned old Negro stories and folk-
lore dating from the Civil War and
Restoration period.
Soorthern Negro Was Intelligent
"Contrary to published history,
colored men who helped revise the
South after the war were intelligent
citizens, and Negroes did not domi-
nate the Reconstruction Era," Hay-
den said yesterday.
"No worse than our present Con-
gressmen, these Negroes achieved
civil' rights for colored people, new
educational facilities, county and
state- reorganization and tax revi-
Hayden's research has led him to
the belief that the common idea of

Negro poetry is wrong. "We have
American poetry written by Negroes,"
he stated.

Hayden's latest book, "The Black
Spear," to be published shortly by
Doubleday, Doran & Co., deals with
Negro life during the slaverty period
and the Civil War.
Book To Be Published
"James Weldon Johnson first no-
ticed my poetry," Hayden said.
"Stephen Vincent Benet, author of
'John Brown's Body,' was also very
interested in my work," he added.
Hayden wrote .the script and acted
as commentator for the series of
broadcasts given over CKLW during
the exhibition celebrating 75 years
of Negro progress which was held
in Detroit in 1940.
Hopwood Award Won
A graduate of Wayne University,
Hayden began the study of English,
play production and creative writing
at the University in 1938. He won
a major Hopwood award for poetry
in 1942 with his work, "Christopher
At present Hayden acts as music
and drama critic fori The Michigan
Chronicle, a Detroit Newspaper.
