COMMITTEE ON PUBLIC INFORMATION

MEMORANDUM FOR MR. SCOTT:

Will you advise the publishers of colored newspapers in regard to the Labor advertising campaign that this advertising is not paid for by the government but that every local newspaper sells the space to manufacturers in their community who are faced with this labor problem.

It seems to me that it ought to be possible for these people to sell this advertising to local manufacturers employing any great percentage of negro labor.

Mr. Carl Walberg of the Department of Labor who has been handling this whole plan assured me that he will call upon you and go over the matter in detail upon his return from New York next Monday.

Carl Byoir.
Associate Chairman.
