Clean, tightly bound booklet which measures 5-1/2"x7-1/2" and has 32 pages illustrated with graphs. First printing was in August 1942, and this one, the second, in December, 1942. The booklet begins with a provocative story about how the Japanese in January, 1942 aired a story from Sikeston, Missouri about a young African American man named Cleo Wright who was seized by a mob and burned to death.
