Mr. Clarence Ousley,
Assistant Secretary.

Dear Mr. Ousley:

Have you noticed that the Food Administration has a Negro Press section, Educational Division in charge of a negro by the name of A. M. Craig? The Food Administration is now getting out pamphlets on "How the Negro Can Help Make Food Win the War".

I also call your attention to the fact that the Department of Labor has established a Negro Section in charge of a negro by the name of George E. Haynes, formerly of Nashville, Tennessee. I saw him the other day and referred him to Mr. Christie and Dr. Wilcox. I thought it advisable that your farm labor division know of the existence of these two forces.

Yours very truly,
Bradford Knapp
Chief.
