To the Editor of the Crimson:
I have been instructed, by several Negro alumni of the University who are resident in the Greater Boston area, to express our great satisfaction with your editorial entitled "The Dark Side of Defense," which appeared in your issue of 27 November. It was a sterling example of forthright courageous journalism.
Unfortunately, the third paragraph contained an erroneous statement regarding a particular plant. You wrote: "The Glenn L. Martin with a half billion dollars of defense orders hasn't a single Negro in 18,000 workers." The fact of the matter is that, owing to continuous picketing by the Baltimore branch of the National Negro Congress, the plant in question yielded to such pressure several months ago and has scores of Negro workers on its payroll. I think that, in fairness to Mr. Martin, who also issued a statement at the time enjoining other employers to follow his example, this fact should be given the prominence which it merits. William Harrison '32, Associate Editor, Boston Chronicle.
