Kilgore asked for an appointment, in order that they
might be photographed with the President. They are from
the Negro magazine COLOR. Mr. Charles Ross approved. They wish
to present the fourth edition of COLOR to the President.
They wrote Sen. Kilgore, partly as follows - "Since COLOR
has in mind the following worthy objectives: to create good
will between the races, to improve work habits and job
attitudes of its readers, since it intends to upgrade
their personality, since it intends to dignify labor and
glorify the common occupations of life as stressed by
Booker T. Washington; since it intends to educate and
inspire as well as entertain; since it is the first magazine
ever printed in four colors in the Negro race, and it occurs
during President Truman's administration, we firmly believe
it would be good thing for us to present this historical
issue to the President of the United States.")
