The Moorfield Storey Membership Drive for 50,000 Members

Many friends of the Association and several of its local branches have asked how best they might show their appreciation of Presidents Storey's notable service to the cause in winning the Louisville Segregation Case before the United States Supreme Court. Mr. Storey's answer is-"DON'T HOLD LAUDATORY MEETINGS. I SHALL FEEL BEST REPAID IF EVERY BRANCH WILL JOIN ENTHUSIASTICALLY IN THE EFFORT TO SECURE 50,000 MEMBERS FOR THE N. A. A. C. P. WE NEED A LARGE MEMBERSHIP TO INSURE THE PERMANENT SUCCESS OF OUR GREAT MOVEMENT AGAINST RACE PREJUDICE." 

Every Crisis reader should join the Association.
