This issue of the Call and Post also included an advertisement encouraging black voters to support President Franklin D. Roosevelt in the upcoming election. The ad pointed to "The Philadelphia Story" to argue that President Roosevelt would stand up for employment rights for black Americans. "When the transportation workers in Philadelphia struck agains the up-grading of eight Negro workers last August, the rights of Negro workers all over America were threatened!," the ad began. "To guarantee the economic rights of all the people and to enforce an order of the FEPC [Fair Employment Practices Commission], President Franklin Delano Roosevely ordered the United States Army to seize the Philadelphia Transportation Company. He did this to enforce a national policy of non-discrimination which he inaugurated as President of the United States."
