To the President's Committee on Fair Employment Practice 

We, the undersigned patrons of the Capital Transit Company, hereby signify our desire to see local Negro manpower and womanpower utilized for the operation of street cars and buses. The increasing shortage of manpower in the District makes the use of all available workers of paramount importance. 

We therefore support the action of the President's Committee on Fair Employment Practice in the issuance of its directive ordering the Capital Transit Company to hire qualified Negro men and women as bus and street car operators and conductors.
