Reveal Princess Hotix 



IF RADIO reporti are to be given 
any credence the American 
Telephone Stock Is soaring higb- 
tr th»n ever. 

When the question of employ- 
ment of Aframericans was first 
brought to the attention of South- 
em California officials of the 
Telephone Company; officials ap- 
proached said, that due to the de- 
pression, many of the Company's 
old employees had b->en laid off, 
i and not until they had been taken 
care of would the matter be given 

Negroes listen to radio financial 
reports and read newspaper. What 
low Telephone Company? 

I ENJOYED a visit to the Los 
Angeles Forum last Sunday. 
One by one the old timers who 
once made the Forum a favorite 
Sunday afternoon retreat are an- 
swering roll call. Amonu the old 
Umers who still keep the home 
Urea burning are Oliver. Duncan, 
Stafford, Thompson, Brown, Mc- 
Murray, I»ltts, McAlphin, Reeves 
«nd "Gene" Fisher. 


few people answered the call 

and «i*re present at ^ .oieeting 

'ailed at the Second Baptist 
Church to protest Invasion 
«f Abyssinia. '■ 

After the mpeting had been 
formally opened with scripture 
reading, prayer and a sdng by the 
Rev. L. B. Brown, many phases of 
the Abyssinian situation were dis- 
cussed to the end that the meet- 
ing waxed into one of intenjte en- 
thusiasm. Oft account of the 
amallness of the crowd, but e 
great interest manifested: it was 
the wiah of those present that the 
et'ort to Interest Angelenos in 
their Black brothers, and sisters. 
In Abyssinia be repeatec' this Sun. 
day at the same time and place. ' 

The object of next Sunday's 
meeting will not be in the interest 
of collecting funds for Abyssinia. 
but to throw a gigantic force of 
moral sup^rt to the brave but 
■truggling little Blarfe Republic, 
peopled by Afrmericans kith and 

I DON'T kno\ just what this 
suggestion will get mr. but 
whatever * the re.iult one should 
never be afraid to express a con- 
aclentipus conviction. 

For a period of years George 
. Redmond acted as chaplain of the 
Foruoci. So over zealous was Mr. 
Redjaond in perfornfing his duty 
as /fie saw it that often he :provok- 
ed^~t^e wrath of some individuals 
aad even at tiipes the Forum— but 
.rone of these ', cond^ions pha-ied 
Red^nond. Hlsi. duty, he believed 
was to preserve peace in the 
Forum, hence, neither coercion, 
nor threats ever caused him to 
*we'-ve in that duty 

Because he» is eccentric, Mr. 
Redmond is not always nnder- 
atood. bu I asu jbliabing a let.

NEW YORK CITY. July 26 (ASN) -^Harlem, the city within a

fronted with two very^ strange and odd rivals. It seems that the

Beth Eden Choir 
Holds Anniversary 
Sunday, July 28th 

The Beth Eden Baptist Church 
Choir invites the public to their 
first choir anniversary, Sunday Ju- 
ly 28. 

Under the direction of Miss Min- 
nie Albritton the choir of Beth 
Eden Baptist church has made ra- 
pid strides. To show the calibre 
of their training this special pro- 
gram is being offered Sundav, July 
28, at 3 :30 p. m., at 27th and Palo- 
ma streets.' An array of artists 
will assist 

Rev. J. A. H. EldrMge is pastor

plea.sing drinking, one by one. To 
the uninitiated! this pleasure does ' 
not -leem too fascinating, but all 
the HarlemitesI say that It's, quite, 
the thing. ^ i ' | 

The other ! is the •'Lemon ' 
Squeeze " wherfe each participant i 
pays a small sjjm to test his abil- 1 
ity at guessini: the number of j 
seeds in a lem0n, with the ■winner | 

total. On the surface this g^rae 
sound rather familiar but uncon- 
ventional Harlem remedied this 
diflflculty. For in this case the 
lemon is usually the shortest and 
plumpest person at the party. He 
is generally gayly Wad in a hide- 
ous yellow .^uit which is' laugh- 
ingly described as an Imitation of 
a lemon. Thp victims In turn go 
and squeeze this alleged lemon, 
which usually calls for a ^ooa 
deal of hilarity. 

Occasionally one of the aforcr 
mentioned .may be substituted ft or 
a 'BOn Voyage Party" (Help Me 
Get To Europe) and the drinks at 
these parties are generally priced 
at twenty -fixe per, wdth some un- 
savory entertainment^ thrown in 
for good measure.

Hucker, after cutting hit wife 

to death, went to t^je home of a

reporter learned that Hucker, 
who is alleged to have a police 
and prison record, quarreled ■with 
his wife incessantly while living 
with her and even, at times, 
threatened her life. 

Hucker, is also aleged to have 
forced his wife out' of the Jones' 
■home and .she sought work in 
Long Beach. On the day of the 
murder Hucker is said to have 
visited his estranged mate jthile 
she was at work in Long Beach. 
And after she had caught__lhe

at the end of the day's work, 
Hucker awaited her arriv at the 
Long Beach car tracks and Wil- 
mington avenue and slashed her 
about the. throat and body until 
she fell, from the loss of blood. 

It ■was then that he went to his 
cousin's home and stood before a

Omaha, Nebr.. July 26 (By R. 
C. Price for ANP)— Horajce W. 
Jones. 75-year-old white mjin. has 
been held to the District court un- 
der a $1,000 bond, for the irape of 
a 12 year old colored girl. The 
child is Ruth Glover, daughter of 
Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Glovir, 2102 
N. 29th street. 

Before the attempted rajpe was 
discovered, the mother of the child 
had become suspicious of; Jones 
because of the old man's firequent 
and abundant gifts of mone^, eggs, ! 
vegetables and other things to { 
the girl. When the girl ritturned ; 
from Jones' home June 29, the ^ 
mother had her examined 1 by Dr. ' 
Wesley Jones who stated that rape 
had been attempted. i I 

Jones and the girl were taken 
before Municipal Judge ; Lester 
Palmer. The girl testified that : 
the claim of attempted rape waa 
true and that Jones haa been^ 
guilty twice. She assertM that 
he had told her not to . tell any- 
body because he would get into ' 
trouble. She claimed that the 
acta occurred in the hen| house 
where Jones would send her, os- 
tensibly to collect eggs. T 

The case will be prosecuted by 
the local branch of the Ni A. A. i 
C. P. of which Dr. Weslejr Jones 
Is president and Atty. John Ad- 
ams. Jr., chairman of the Ifgal re- t

Choirs' Union Meets 

from MemDership of 
Wesley M. E. Church 

In the paningr of our dearly be- 
loved member and feUar co- 
worker, Chauncey Townsend,. 
Wesley Church loees one o< the 
-moat uaefiil and aerious' minded 
young n'cn in her membenhip. A 
younir man a< edncaticn, native 
ability and viaiim, his was a fu- 
ture Trhich gr^ve promise of re- 
markable acompUshments for 
f o<>d to his church, the communi- 
ty, and the race he had dedicated 
hlmaei '. to serve. 

At Vat time of his passin;, he 
was working- out plans to promote 
the church interest through the 
medium of attractive religious ad- 
vertising propaganda, to check 
the present trend of the modem 
day youth away from the church. 
That his plans were feasible are 
evidenced by the result he had 
already achieved during the_ re- 
cent Sunday school membership 
campaign and the successful pub- 
lication of the Sunday School 
paper duritig that period. 

The pastor and membership de- 
sire to convey to the family of 
their departed friend and brother, 
their sympathy in an hour when 
even the attempt of friends to 
comfort and solace deepens the 
sorrow of the bereaved. Thus 
when we have done and said all 
we can, only the Heavenly F^th. 
er is able to comfort to the utter- 

Chauncey Townsend was not 
^>ared to live a loi^ life, but he 
lived well the years given him by 
serving where ever he could, 
when he could and whom he 
could in the best way he could." 
His was . a life worthy of emula- 
'tlon not only by the young people 
with whom he worked in church, 
Sunday School and civic organi- 
sations, but by the young people 
of Los .Angeles. 

May the recollection of bis gen- 
erous attitude toward all his fel- 
lowmen. and his upstanding chris- 
tiaui character, serve to help iM all 
till we shall be with him.

their route led directly to the

Say. Italy WUl 
Be Unable to ^ 
Conquer Ethiopia 

CHICAGO, July 28— (AN?)— 
Many persons who have visited 
Ethiopia fear that if Emperor 
Halle Selassie is able to obtain 
ammunition, the African Klnif- 
dom wUl defeat Italy If war is 

One of these is the Rev. Oswald 
J. Smith, Toronto. Canada, mis- 
sionary, who visited In thia city 
last week. He was formerly 
stationed in Ethiopia. He said of 
the Italian campaign while here: 

'The Ethiopians wiJI be fighting 
In an impassable country with 
which they alone are familiar.' 
Airplane attacks would be futile, 
as there are no buildings to des- 
troy outside of ths small city of 
Addis Abliba. Absolute lack of 
roads and only 500 miles of rail- 
road would hopelessly hinder 
transportation of troops," 

In respect to the fluid which 
the Italians are reported to have 
invented to burn the feet of the 
Ethiopian sildiers an American 
high army officer asserted that it 
would be necessary first for Itali- 
an soldiers to reach the areas oc- 
cupied by Ethiopian soldiers. 



Paris, France, July 26.— (ANP) 
— If the yellow rac<is continue to 
increase numerically for the next 
hundred years, as at present they 
will have become so numerous 
that Asia will no longer possess 
either the economic or nhyslcal 
means to contain them and Eu- 
rope will be over run with them, 
according to an opinion expressed 
by Dr. Charles Rlchet. 

This condition, which is con- 
talned in an article written by Dr. 
Frichet, is considered as a dis- 
tinct menace to the white races, 
by the doctor, who declares: "By 
virtue of sheer numerical superi- 
ority the yellow races will com- 
pletely submerge the whites, des- 
troy their time-honored Institu- 
tions and replace their magnlfl- 
cent civilization." 

To overcome this menace Eu- 
ropeans must develop greater fe- 
cundity, according to the French 
scientist, and destroy vicious birth 
control propaganda and its distri- 
bution. Recent natality statistics 
based on the excess births over 
deaths per 10,000 people, show that 
there are 350 Chinese bom to ev- 
ery 43 Germans, 19 Englishmen 
and 15 Frenchmen. 

Such re.port would mean much 
in the archives for the use of 
speakers .seeking public office in 
Ull!np of "what your forefathers 
fought for and sacrificed their 
lives for" and the like. This lynch- 
ing eqiiallod Mississippi's half Philadelohia 
year record and was half the num- 
ber of individuals Ij-nched during 
the first six month period of this 
year. Louisiana having lynched

MGM furnished Clarence Muse bis 
best role for a year. He is well 
pleased with it as it gives htm th^.: 
varietv in portra\aU that he likf- 
hest'. An tin-tvped rbaracfr a( tor 

of the flrst water, he is at horn- 

in parrs that nm the gamut oi tra- 
gedy, comedy, intensity. lightness 
and an opportunity to sing in that 
melodious baritone voice that rei?- 
isters so perfectly on the sound- 

The new- film is a fa«f inovmg 
life. v itb 

as Longfellow would remark. On- 
ly the great, gorgeous, tent-like 
canopy that forms the selling is 
still there, but its tenants are 
not. Its expensive fixtures char- 
acterized by gilded figures and 
statuary are still there, rep- 
resenting somebody s good, hard 
cash invested in thp latest of 
Chauncey Hyland's failures. 

Beginning at this time last year 
with the Sawdust Trail at 47th 
and Central, he dropped it for, the 
Classic on Compton avenue. 
Within a month he had hung on its doors, and tears in 
the eyes of the backers. Hopping 
back to Central at street, 
there he opened the Hi-Dc-Ho. 
drawing big crowds from lhf> 
.start. As usual the money came 
in but for unknown reasons a 
constant stream of creditors trail- 
ed in seeking the suave but elus- 
ive Chauncey. 

The S?Unset was his next npw 
ipove. .started as usual.' while he 
was still in the old place. When 
deputy sheriffs got in the habit of 
acting as box-office collectors and 
bands and entertainers threatened 
bodily harm, the irrepressible 
Monsieur do Chauncey walked out 
on rhem all, and renting the up- 
stairs, started a breakfast club. 

But one bright morning, the 
butchpc, the baker and the can- 
dle-stick maker .swoo.ned dfiwn on 
both places and deliberately took 
them apart, not even leaving par. 
titions standing. 

Bouncing back like the cat 
with nine lives. In tiT.e. fig- 
urativply spt?akng. than it takes 
to tell it. he threw open the 
doors of th" Araby. finest of them 

all, but with the ujsual finish.

^ "Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them! " - r - Isaiih 5:11. 





In its tenth anniversary celebration last Tuesday eve- 
ning, at 2tki Baptist Church, the Golden State Mutual 
Life Insurance Company added new laurels to its already 
brilliant Mcord of achievements in the insurance realm. 

LittlJ* George A. Beavers, Jr., who arranged the pro- 
gram, prtTared it in such fashion that it sizzled with in- 
terest from start to finish. 

'One man's rights 


There is a corollary which reads 
?nd where the other man's begin." 

We may speak of peaci, while constantly preparing 
for the total annihilation of each other, but SUCCESS 
toward that goal will not be accomplished until man has 
permitted that signal TRUTH to seep through and satu- 
rate his very SOUL. [ ! 

The BLACK MAN, way off down there on' the other 
side of the hemisphere, in that torrid country known as 
AFRICA, has, undoubtedly, drank deeper and more sin- 
cerely of our "vaunted" Civilization; for during his long 
reign and possession in ABYSSINIA, long before the 
Caesars Pharoahs, Confususes, etc., he has maintained 


The Federal Transient Service in contributing to the 
needs of the nonresident is performing a great feat. 
There are thirteen shelters and intake bureaus, and twen- 
ty-seven work camps are in operation in Southern Cali- 
fornia, giving destitute non-residents an opportunity to 'and developed that which he has claimed was his — and

to help toward their rehabilitation or their transportation who sought and became contaminated with other na-

Approximately 54,000 out-of-state indigent persons 
^ere extended assistance by the Transient Service in 
Southern California during the past month, and the num- 
ber of "spare-a-dime" pleas heard by passersby on the 
streets has diminished almost to the point of disappear- 
ance as compared with two years ago. 


The news of the sudden passing of young Chauncey 
Townsend was a great shock to Los Angeles' newspap- 
er row. 

Mr. Townsand had his start on the California Eagle, 
and unlike many others, he never failed to appreciate the 
encouragement extended by the late Editor J. B. Bass, 
who preceeded him by about seven trjonths. 

Death is the one experience to which we are involun- 
tarily subjected, and to which we never become accus- 
tomed. We lament the passing of the aged, but when a 
young person- especially one with an apparent brilliant 
future before him steps suddenly out of the ranks we 
don't always understand. 

Chauncey has joined the innumerable host, and we 
pause to say "rest to his ashes and peace to his soul," and 
extend heart-felt sympathy to his mother and other 







It IS no disgrace to be Black, but it is « often a 
vantage under the American economic system. 

Monday morning when we read a local daily, 
caught our attention: 

"San Diego Negro May Be 'Hoover' for AbyMinia 
"Tall, black George Ramsey, dark-town dictator 
and an expert on culinary matters, tonight volun- 
teered his services as 'Herbert Hoover for Ethiopia,' 
if it comes to war with Italy. 

'Standing spraddle-legged before a full-length 
iiirror in his elaborate 'Creole palace' suite, slicing 
whiskers from his ebony chin, Ramsey explnined 
the war in Ethiopia would be fought on a basis of 
'superiority of the black man's food to the white 
man's food.' 

rito{;y and not squatting in the backyard of some other 
power; his colonies are also within his confines, aM 
not through threat or force endeavoring to "gobble" up 
what is the possession of someone, else ; and again, he is 
truly removed from our "civilization" when, he recog- 
nizes the inherent and God-given right of^ach man, na- 
tion and people to its own government, and is not con- 
stantly seeking to "protect" someone or thrust their 
sovereignty upon any foreign territory through many 
and varied guises. 

It is now apparent that many nations — JAPAN, EN- 
GLAND and FRANCE (oh yes, our country's "MORAL" 
expression) have, for varied reasons, decided at the 
eleventh hour, to either aggressively oppose Mussolini's 
nefarious intentions or control him through the League 
of Nations. Whichever way it is to be done, it seems 
that they are so bent. Japan, has steadfastly from the 
beginning held to the fact that she could not support 
Mussolini in any designs which he might have upon that 
rich country — Abyssinia; of course her vast concessions 
in that country demand this attitude. England, at first 
hand, was inclined to be .lukewarm, but when shown 
that her territory there was to be appropriated and maybe 
later confiscated, it brought about a change of mind. 
England's pressure, through threat of disassociation 
with the League of Nations should they fail to assist to 
thwart Mussolini's effort and safeguard the integrity 
of Abyssinia sent a chill through France that aroused 
her to the realization of HITLER across the Rhine with 
a bilateral agreement with Great Britain, and her abject 
NECESSITY of maintaining friendships with her friends. 
AND, at the other end of the five-ring circus, which the 
world will "sit in" on, we imagine that Mussolini is just 
about to forget his que, and will have to pull the clown 
act— either stand still and suck his thumb, or go ahead 
nonchalantly and walk into the path of the Elephant, to 
be rolled over in the "mud." 

He is truly CIVILIZED who maintains the precepts 
and teachings of Civilization-HUMAN RIGHTS. Now 
who is civilized? I 

" 'I want to get over there when fightin'' starts,' 
Ramsey explamed. 'But 1 don't want to do no 
fighting — no suh ! 1 want to be the man that han- 
dles food, like Herbert Hoover did for Belgium.' 

"Ramsey has taken steps for government approv- 
al of a proposed exodus of an Ethiopian 'unit' from 
the local Negro section to 'join up with thousands 
all over the country.' 

" 'We start enrolling tomonow,' he said. 'Orders 
his gone out from headquarters in Harlem, N. Y.' 

"Ramsey said his 'unit', fartherest from New 
York, start the movement across the- country, join- 
ing others as ihey went." 

Even though George Ramsey is of the bronze, rather^ 
than the ebony type, with more nearly classical features 
than maybe the writer of the article possessed, yet, we 
take no exception to the term "black" used in this case 
except to wonder why writers on so-called white papers 
endeavor always to poke fun at Af ro- Americans ? 

The last time we talked with Mr. Ramsey, which was 
about two weeks ago, he was speaking good English. 

Afro-Americans have produced a medicine man who 
was the first to discover that the human heart could be 
cut open, sewed back and" the patient live — an educator 
who was first to sound a not for an industrial revival in

Aiscovereid that the peanut, and its by-products, is one of

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., July 26- 
(ANP)— Dero Luster, Negro, 
FERA worker, charged witli crimi- 
nal assault with intent to rape Mrs. 
Mabel Herrinjton. white. Febru- 
arjr IS, 1935, walked from the 
Criminal courtroom a free man last 
week. Judge Fra»k P. Baker 
halted the trial without calling any 
defense' witnesses, declaring that 
the state ha\^ failed completely to 
present any evidence in support of 
the charge. 

Henry J. Richardson, 'Jr. promi- 
nent Indianapolis attorney and 
member of the Indiana legislature, 
represented the National Associa- 
tion for the Advancement of Col- 
ored People, and Miltwn Siege], 
representing the International La- 
bor Defense, were 4ef*nse counsel 
for Luster. Through shrewd 
cro<s examination they succeeded 
in breaking down alt evidence pre- 
nerited bv the state, thereby estab- 
lishing Lusters' innocence. 

Eight witnesses used by the 
»tate presented a twisted story of 
the alleged ^ttack by Luster from 
the witness stand. After establish- 
ing the fact that an attack had 
been committed upon the young 
woman, witnesses conflicted with 
one another in their identity of 
Liister as the attacker. 

Mrs. Hcrrington testified that a 
ts 11 light complexioned colored man 
had approached her anB, without 
warning, seized her, putting his 
hand in her mouth to prevent her 
from screaming and assaulted her. 
During her struggle she snid she 
sank her teeth deeply into the man's 
hand, causing him to withdraw it 
from her mouth. Her screams at- 
tracted several people who were in 
the neighborhood. 

The itates' witnes^ies filled en- 
tirely to definitely identifv Luster 
as the man- who committed the at- 
tack. One of the state's >vi;nesses 
stated definitely, that Luster was 
not the man seen by him leavlntr 
the scene of the attack, and that he 
had seen the real attacker three 
times since the night of the assault, 
during which time Luster was 
i under arrest awaiting trial, having 
been there since February 10. 

It was also proven by the defense 
counsel that Mrs. Harrington, after 
seeing Luster, wlio was brought tO: 
her home by officers, stated to 
Officer Dinkier. •'That is not the 
man; he is too tall." 

Judge Baker in announcing the 
verdict stated: "One of the easiest 
thin;js in the world to do is to be 
mistaken in identity. I would not 
Convict anyone on circumstancial 
evidence. Records show that there 
are ten men convicted on mistaken 
identity, to' one convicted on cir- 
cumstantial evidence." 

■The case created considerable ex- 
citement because of the alleged 
brutal attack upon a white- woman. 
Since the trial many comments pro 
and con have appeared in the daily 
newspapers. The defense for Lus- 
ter was solid owing to the unified 
effort of the ILD, the same orga- 
nization that defended the Scotts- 
boro boys, and the local N.'\.\CP.

ery other pen wlelder U doing it, 
so here goes: 

The , Negroes of the United 
States no doubt from hereditary 
reasons have their hearts in sym- 
pathy with Abyssinia. They who 
are gallant and patriatre would 
like to go, in defense of Africa, 
but remember you are "really and 
tniUy" pioneer American citlxtins. 
The ConstituUon forbids citizens 
from enlisting in aid of Foreign 

No doubt many who . volunteer 
to enlst in this foreign service, 
feel that by such actions of their 
white neighbors and co-American, 
as taken by acUons .this week In 
the lynching of three Black Am- 
ericans (<»e under age) this week, 
that he (The Negro) is not wanted 
to leave this USA to defend an. 
other country's crown, neither is 
he (the Negro) wanted, socially, 
economically and politically in the 
United States of America. 

Man's brain has t.vp rooms, toe 
where he prepares for the future 
and the other where he stores past 
and present knowledge of things 
— worldly and aoclally. Edtica- 
tion of those who take part in 
lynchings and aaaociaUon with 


the Negro will go by far, farther 
to alleviate these inhuman a?t«, 
by a so-called civilized people. 

Trouble between ancestors cf 
both Abyssinia and Italy date 
back to early ancient 'imes, ev«n 
before exact dates were recorded. 
The Carthagenlans and Africa en-

Carthage owed Africa money,

Liberals. Radicals, Socialists and 
Communists made a solid L'nited 
Front against Fascism, so that man 
may have the right to his voiced

detail the terribly moving testi-

phrase. "Cermany is not Hitler," 
and bringing proof <>f anti-Nazi re- 
sistance in the form of several 
manuscripts attesting the now il- 
legal activity of the German revolu- 
tionary intellectuals. 

He spoke a few minutes then left 
the platform to return directly to 
the Nazi tyranny, as is realised, in 
utter peril of his life. Do you not 
see in this a parallel to the hero- 
ism of Harriet Tubman, the es- 
caped slave, who returned again 
and again to the Slave .'■"tates to 
lead her fellow ! soflFertrs into 
freedom? \^ 

From Spain and' Italy too had 
come delegates who testified of 
the supressinn of free speech and 
of the stultification lof all forms of 
culture under the Fascist tegime — 
a desert in which ncihina: living nor

of the world too csn come together, 
with each other and, with the work-

Father Diviners Peace Message j :^-^ 

The Banquet Table, School and Wkklilie Streets; 
Sunday, July 14th, 5:45, In Newark New Jersey 








SUNDA^r. JULY 14. '35 

Telephones rang- incessantly in 
Father* Sayvflle Home, Hij New 
Vork City Headquarters, and »l 
the Peare Mission in Newark. N. 
J., Sunday Morningr, July 14th, a« 
Parimunt Newsreel Photographers 
attempted to reach that Personal 
Body that twenty-one million other> 
would lilce to reach,— that Beloved 
Form they know as the Bodv of 

Knowing Father's ^tai-d for 
World Peace, and Goodwill to all 
mankind, the Newsree'. men de- 
sired to photonraph Him ,iiid record 
His Voice in a Statement of His 
Views on the War be'wccn Ahys- 
«inia and Italy, and the recruiting 
cf forces in New York to eo to 

Tiey had sought Father on Sat- 
urday, at His Ne wVcrk City 
Headquarter!!, but like many otiier 
T'i.lori there, they had toiind that 
He was Personallv in Savville. 
Among the other visitor* was for- 
mer Congressman Wal'er F. Linc- 
brrger of, California, who testified 
of a previous interview w h Father. 
and of the great benefits received 
thr;.jgh contact with Hi'V,— and a' 
grcnp of Students from New Jer- 
sey State Teachers' Coile^e. under 
the direction of Dr. Howel's Rccon- 
ril-ation Bureau. 

Sunday Morning, however, found 
the blue Rolls-Royce with the top 
down, traveling leasurely over 
Long Island Highways, carrying 
that Precious Body, together with 
Mother and Staff, toward the City. 
Father was expected in Nev.ark, 
and also at lllh street, so the 
camera men paused between the 
two, ready to move either way 
when they could establish lonf act- 
After stopping briefly at a Ofwly 
opened Extension. Father arrived 
at 115th Street, with its great 
Throng, eagerly awaiting His Per- 
Kinal Presence. Here, He stayed 
odly a thort time, before making 
|Hi« ireming departure for Newark. 
■ " Arriving at Newark, the Para- 
mount Sound Truck was already 
on hand, and the operatives en- 
deavored to get Father to step oiit- 
•iile and make a formal statement 
before the camera, even placing 
tape on the sidewalk to mark the 
•pot for Him to Stand. Ibis was 
wot according to Father's Version? 
however, of moviVig according to 
HU Own Volition, and the great 
Saviour, the Sample and Kxample 
for all mankind, would not agree to 
•ueh an arrangement. It was therv 
lore dec!de<l to >wait until Monday 
and Picture Father at His llSfh 
Street Headfiuarters, and the. op- 
eratives packed up their equipment, 
remarking,— 'Me mores iu His 
Own Atmosphere.' . 

In and around the Peace Mission. 
were gathered thousands of the 
Tnie and the Faithful from Jersey. 
ami tme from New York. A for- 
mal Program had been prepared. 
contrary to the usual custom of 
and an 

fide. Going to the Banquet I'able 
in the late Afternoon, however, 
where amplifiers had been especi- 
ally instaled for the occasion. 
Father Spoke at ength and in great 
Power, while His Words re- 
sounded in the Auditorium above, 
and to the many outside the Build- 
ing. His Message was as fol- 

and TRUTH, ' with GOOD 
HAVIOR,— with and without 
form, wheresoever you are and 
wheresoever you have gJi.o. It is 
indeed Wonderful! While listen- 
ing to the Songs siid d'llitis in on 
them, transmitting My Spirit and 
My Spirit and My Min.l to the 
children of men. that is the way I 
can enter then:; reacliiiK y'u on 
the plane wherein you stand, and 
coming in the light of the under- 
standing wherein you came- I 
was Thinking, how m.arvelous it is 
to realize the Ever-prescntc ol 
GOD as Something to move you. 
to Speak TO vou, to Spe.ik 
THROUGH you," to Guide you 
and Protect you. 

It is 5iich a privilege to knoiv, 
the Spirit of Radicalness. without 
the custom of the ordinary Re- 
ligion.*, has brought into observa- 
tion the Redeemer of humanity. 
You can observe Him. for your 
Redemption drew nigh, until you 
could observe it with your physical 
eye. when GOD materialized that 
which you surmised, as soon as 
you realize that which yf/j surmise. 
Oh it is such a privilege! 

While Listening to the expres- 
sions of this .\ssembly, I could be- 
hold the coming into expression of 
the Spirit . of My Presence as I 
Came, Coming through that which 
was commonly termed as great 
tribulation, — coming through that 
which was commonly known as 
trials of the world; coming through 
all adverse and undesirable con- 
dit^bns, but bringing the Spirit and

ing into outer expression that which 
was invisible, making visible the 
invisible — this by the function from 
the within, as being termed from 
the Holy One. 

That is the mystery, and the 
way I Came. It is the way I Come 
today. It is indeed Wonderful! 
Oh how marvelous it is, to know 
you are free. I have harnessed 
your mentality, not for your men- 
tality to control Me, but that your 
mentality and your energies might 
be servants of the Infinite. Oh, it 
has Risen. GOD is Moving in 
the hearts and the lives of Hi»

Christ within you, giving victorv

This is the purpose for which T 
Came, to bring the Kingdoom of 
GOD to the Earth plane. Oh it 
if such a privilege. While sitting 
and looking, and observing the un- 
foldment of My Spirit as it moves 
spootaneOutly within you, it will 
bring forth m>-steries and Love, vet 
untold, Whv? Because the Soirit 
of GOD'S Power from the within 
'i^ not under man's control. The 
Spirit of GOD'S .Power, as you 

I move spontaneously, will work and 

i move scientifically, and will work 

" according to tht Hand of Nattjre. 

and even the Cosmic Forces pf 

Nature will work harmony wjth it. 

Oh it is sucba privilegel 

While coming from down, the 
kland this Morning, the Sun was 
apparently brighti or brightly shin- 
icg whichever, and we happen to 
have the car open in the back, and 
we thought for an instant. that the 
shadow was essential for the com- 
fort of the Angels, Immediately, 
spontaneously, :i.e shadow canie 
forth, as the Cloud was in the 
Vvilderness by day, that led the 
Children of Israel thereby. A pil- 
lar of Cloud overshadowed- the 
Sun and gave us shadow as we 
drove along. This is what the 
Spirit of Harmony will do. This 
is what the Spirit of 'spontaneous- 
ncss' will do when you niove spon- 
tancbusly according to your own 
intuition and your own volunteer 
volition. Christ will Rise in, your 
mentality. Before yOu think. He 
will act upon the impuUe of the 
mc>ment. He will hear and answer 
the prayer of the simplest hearts, 
and the simplest desire of any 
heart. That is the mystery! 

Therefore the Comforter has 
truly come, bringing Comfort 
where there was discomfort, and 
pleasure where there was displeas- 
ure: Peace, and Joy. and Happi- 
ness where there was confusion 
and where there were worries, and 
trials and tribulations. Oh it is 
such a privilege to live in the Pres- 
ence of GOD and KNOW iti 
•Where the Tree of Life is 
Blooming, — Here is rest for the 
weary, here is rest for you-' You 
need not look to find rest some 
place other than here, unless you 
raise your consciousness to contact 
the Christ Consciousness, ajid find 
this rest in yourself. But we are 
privileged to know, this rest com- 
eth not by the will of man, but as 
it Cometh by the Will of Him that 
Liveth forever within, your contact 
with Him this rest and Peace will 
bring. Oh it is such a privilegel 

Then 1 Say. Oh. My Beautiful 
Children.' The Beauty of GOD 
has been materialized. As you rea- 
lize the Ever-presence of Him as a 
Living Factor, the tiansmission of 
vour conscious conviction and rea- 
lization becomes a conception. 
This conception is making and 
bringing into materialization that 
whi" h you have visualized vividly. 
That which you have visuahzed 
vividly, has become the reincar- 
nation of each and every individu- 
al that has visualized it vividly with 
a heart of sincerity. Oh it i.< such 
a privilege to realize, all that you 
can visualize, it can be materialized, 
and all that jan be materialized you 
can reaize, and all that you can 
consciously realize, it can be per- 
sonified, for you are invisibly a 
mental expression from the invisi- 
ble realm, in your likeness of; your 
physical expression. 

What you can consciously visu- 
alize and consciously realize, vou 
can consciously materiaize, andi 
what you consciousy materialize, 
you can eventually personify that 
which you have healized. Because 
of this, we can see the Personifi- 
cation of GOD as a broadcast- Mes- 
sage going forth throughout the 
Upiverse. coming into observation 
as it is Personified mentally firstly, 
in your conscious conceptiim, after 
which it is brought into niateriali- 
zation and physically Personified, 
and you can see the Beauty of 
GOD as you realize it. ; % , 

You have realized things that 
were hid from men just a few years 
ago. Little would you have 

thought three or four years ago. 
that this place in which T^u are 
silting and standing, would have 
been the materializ*.'! Kingdom of 
Heaven. To the contrary, you 
would have thought, no d(>ubt, that 
the City of Newark would have be 
come to be the Kingdom of 'the 
other place' instead of the King- 
dom of Heaven, as it was then ex- 
pressing. But I wish to Say. it has 
been transformed from tlie City of 
Destruction to a Celestial City, a 
City where the Spirit of GOD'S 
Presence is actually existing. Hu- 
manity is coming to the conscious 
recognition of it, and the Officials 
of this great Cify' they are also 
endorsing it. It is indeed Wonder- 
ful. — to think and to see what GOD 
can do for you. and what GOD 
ran do for the whole Universe, 

The transforming process is go- 
ing on. GOD is transforming,— 
transposing atid transforming the 
Land and the Country, the same as 
a Composer can transpose a song. 
Where there was wickedness, now 
Righteousness expresses. Where 
there was sin, now Christ Himself 
has Come. Where wickedness did 
abound, much more does Grace 
abound- Therefore the Scripture is 
fulfilled this day in your hearing, 
because of your conscious convic- 
tion and realiratiou of GOD'S Pres- 
ence. Had you not believed it, 
yo uwould not have received it. 
Because you believe GOD is actu- 
ally Present, and because you be- 
lieve in the tangible-ization of that 
which was invisibe, GOD is bring- 
ing all of your fondest desires into 
Outer expressin, and tangible-ating, 
materializing, a;r| personifying 
your fondest imaginations. 

You have imagines some desir- 
able condition, — you have surmised 
things which you had not seen; 
but today I am bringing your actv- 
al physical view and observatioi 
that which in the invisible, in t\t\ 
mystical and imaginary realm 
The condescendence of GOD to 
things into observation, even ^s He 
the Earth plane waa to bring all 
was invisible firstly, and made 
Himself plain when He came. 
GOD is bringing to vour mini'.": 
eye, things you had not lliot^ht o* 
heretofore. As you think ot them 

vividly, GOD wit eventually bring 
them into observation yisiblv man- 
ifested, and' each and every one 
will eventually recognize it. 
Everything that you can imagine, 
can be done. 'The Creator, the 
Author, and' the Finisher of all 
things, could not aiid would not 
give you the power to think or 
imagine something that He could 
not create, if- you can imagine it. 
GOD would not give you the un- 
derstanding to think vividly on 
anything, and desire it. that He 
could not materialize. Everything 
you can actually desire, GOD can 
materialize, and this is not Faith 
beyond a reasonable degree of ex- 
pression, for in the Beginning 
GOD Created the Heaven and the 
Earth, and the Earth was void and 
without form; but GOD brought 
th^ Earth into matter-like, material- 
hke form when He Spoke it into 
existence alter the Creation. 

Therefore, the thing that- was in 
the invisible realm, GOD brought 
it into materialization, that man- 
kind might discern and enjoy thse 
things that are commonly known as 
material things. That is why we 
tan enjoy these material blessings, 
because we recognize GOD'S Pres- 
ence as the Creator of them, and 
and we realize they were in the 
invisible, mystical, imaginary realm 
from the Beginning, but as the 
time rolled oit and nian desired 
such things in consciousness, GOD 
condescendingly brought them in- 
to observation, that they might he 
a comfort, and consolation and pro- 
tection, and convenience, for the 
physical bodies of men, as they 
had imagined them. 

Every desire can become a reali- 
ty. If it is ju^t, and good, and 
true, GOD can niaferialize it for 
you. If it is unreal, your negative 
thinking while thinking and hving 
in a conscious state of expressin in 
yur physical structure, will cause 
the negative to be materiarily mani- 
fested, even as the positive that I 
am bringing. 

You have heretofore created for 
yourselves, visible chaotic con- 
ditions.- 'i'Our physical systems 
have been in chaos and filled with 
negation, through afflictions, sick- 
ness and diseases. These things 
came by negative thinking about and 
by others. Those conditions were 
in the invisible in the beginning, 
but as you thought them into 
action you brought them into ma- 
terialization and you manifested 
negation. Your physical bodies 
produced chaos, and expressed it. 
materialized it, and manifested it. 
through negative thinking. 

If this csn be done, coming from 
the invisible realm through neg- 
ative thinking, the positive is 
etjuivalently the same. I have 
brought to the Earth plane, t^e 
good and desirable expressions. 
Through po-sitive thinking and pos- 
itive amnions, I am bringing into 
materialization the positive, for all 
Creation. I am" materially manifes- 
ing your fondest imagination, I am 
physicalating and personifying that 
which your hearts have desired. 
This is what we -will do universal- 
ly, as I have done it among you, if 
GOD will Permit, and I have de- 
clared it is permissible and I will 
Permit it. Oh'it is such a privilege 
to realize the significance of mov- 
ing spontaneously-, speaking equi- 
valently, thinking equivalcntly. act- 
ing the same, for the Spirit f My 
Presence brught My Tabernacle 
among yo uby the spontaneous ex- 
pression of your conscious conivc- 
tion, -Jind others'. 

1 Sp?ak on this stressfully, be- 
cause (iOD is in the function GOD in the spontaneoufnes-s, GOD is 
the volition, GOD is the enthusi- 
asm, and GOD is the tuition, but 
within yu, coming forth spontane- 
ously, automatically. simultane- 
ously the Action of GOD will take 
place through His People. Oh it is 
such a privilege to see what GOD 
has actually done for you! Then I 
Say, stand in the Liberty where- 
with Christ has set you free from 
materialism, from the mortal ver- 
sins of men, from the theories and 
doctrines of then, and be not again 
entangled with the yoke of bond- 
age, — the yoke of bondage of ma- 
_tcrialism. , the mortal versions, the 
theorie^and doctrines, the customs, 
forms *id fasliions, and the rituals 
of the Religions, etc. 

These are the things that have 
bound Jesus in the mental and 
Came and Raised Him. Who can 
spiritual prison, the tomb, until I 
lead you? Nothing but that v^Jiich 
has been Resurrected from the 
dead! Nothing but that which has 
been Resurrected from the dead I 
Say! That -which has been Resur- 
rected mentally, that which has 
been Resurrected Spiritually, and 
that which has been Resurrected 
physically, — that is the only thing 
that can lead youv 

Jot these Thougms down in your 
vocabularies, and remember your 
Creator. It is indeed Wonderful! 
Bibles and Hymn Books are 
closed, as far as I am concerned. I 
have Risen, and I Canie to Reign, 
as Lord of Lords and as King of 
Kings. Thart is why the Word 
1 Said to Peter, James and John on 
the Mount of Transfigueration.— 
'This is My Beloved Son in Whom 
I am well pleased, hear ye Him.' 
GOD was Speaking from Above, 
that you might.hear the Voice that 
had Risen, evei\ though it had not 
yet apparently been Crucified. The 
prediction of the Standard of Per- 
fection was brought into observa- 
tion on the Mount of Transfiguer- 
ation, how you should be when 
Christ has Risen in you. Oh it is 
such a privilege! The time has 
truly come, you have declared and 
I have verified, GOD Alone shall 
Reign. Everything that is not 
"xactly accordi^^g to My 'Version. 
•t must be broonht into subjection, 
I for the Spirit of My Version, h 

miut ber broitght into (ubjection, 
for the Spirit of My Pretence has 
truly come to adjust nuttei;* satia- 
factorily and 'harmoniously, scien- 
tifically, according to the Spirit of 
My Calling. I Thank you. 

carefully the Message that I gave 
yoa for the last three yearsi — 
GOD 'Alone shall Reign. The 
theories and doctrines of men, their 
versions, ideas and opinions, can- 
not reign as Lord aifd King, for 
Christ has been elected on the 
Throne of your mind. Therefore 
you must recognize GOD'S Pres- 
ence, for the spirit of the world 
with the; mortal versions of men, 
cannot rule -and reign on the 
throne of your mind. The condes- 
cendence of GOD to men was to 
harness your and their mentality, 
your and their energies, and bring 
both you and all mankind into sub- 
jection, being capable or ^qualified 
to meet the issues of life scientifi- 
cally and speak ' in- all mankind's 

This is the mystery of the Com- 
ing of Christ, and it ir the Pur^ 
pose for which I Came, to bring 
TICE and TRUTH on Earth 
among men. My Thoughts and 
My Mind, My Versions, shall have 
access among them, and naught 
shall hinder them. Upon this 
Foundation if you will stand, and 
be substantiated in Faith and un- 
shaken in confidence, refuse to de- 
viate, but as you are substantiated 
remain and stand firm, you will see 
as I have brought millions into this 
recognition the Universe over, that 
all of its inhabitants can be brought 
into subjection just as easily. I 
■Thank you. 

I wish to Say it is not neces- 
sary for a thought of the human 
mind to come to them, that it can 
better the conditions of My Stand- 
ard, of expression. GOD is Omni- 
potent, and GOD is Omniscient, 
and GOD is Omnipresent. There 
is nothing to come after, there is 
nothing to try to correct or check 
the vibration of My Spirit. It is 
indeed Wonderful! The Rc.iurrer- 
tion of Life that has taken place in 
the hearts and lives of millions, the 
mortal versions of men and thc> 
theories and doctrines, may try to 
check them, — It is indeed Wonder- 
ful, — but < remember, if I have 
brought you safe thus far, I can 
carry you to Perfection as far as 
Perfection gOes! 

Take these Thoughts to consid- 
eration! If My Spirit an.l My 
Mind can bring you from degrad- 
ation, frm sin and from crime, My 
Spirit and My Mind can carry you 
on. If My Spirit an4 My Mind, 
a'nd My Expression,' could Resur- 
rect your physical bodies frOm 
sickness and diseases that were in- 
curable, and give you your deliver- 
an(;e, and give you physical vigor, 
give you physical courage, give you 
physical, power, and give you 
phj^ical intelligence as it may he 
termed. My Spirit and ^^y Mini 
can carry you on to Perfection. 
Mv Spirit and MIy Mind, is L .\m 
and as I Physically Staixl, in'jst be 
recognized as the Ideal. - Copy 
after this Fashion I am showing 
huiiianity, and refuse to allow your- 
selves to be handicapped by the 
mortal versions of men. Spontan- 
eusly I Came, Spontaneously I Re- 
main, Spontaneously I Speak, Lec- 
ture, and Sing, for the Spirit of My 
Presence Eternally is the same, 
and I Thank yOu." 

Leaving (he Banquet Table for a

great delight of everyone, to make

- Among the many visitors of note 
calHng at Father's Ne* York City 
Headquarters, Saturday, July 13th. 
in Father's Personal absence, was 
former Congressman Walter F. 
Lineberger of California, who had 
already enjoyed the privilege cf a 
Personal interview with Father a 
few weeks before. Upon being in- 
troduced to the Assembly around 
the Banquet Table on this latter 
occasion, and invited to have some- 
thing to say if he so desired, the 
Honorable Mr. Lineberger respon- 
ded as folows: 

■'I first learned of Father Divine 
through One who works for me, a 
Mr. Chilson, in California. I am 
sn Engineer in oil mining, and have 
served three terms in the Congress 
ef the United States for my native 
State, California. I have been a 
student of Religion. Philosophy, 
Politics, and Economics, in the 
Colleges and L'niversities of this 
Country and in England. I am not 
a prejudiced man, but I judge all 
thipgs by -Aorks. 

"I saw that Mr. Chilson, upon 
first turning to Father Divine for 
help and assistance, became a new 
man. He was able, in my entire 
Organization, to achieve in less 
time, more than a dozen men could 
achieve in a dozen times tiiat much 
time. That, to me, as a keen ob- 
server of men, was truly Wonder- 
ful, and I set to Mr. Chilson jobs 
that I should not have thought of 
giving _ him, but he accotnplished 
them in a manner that was per- 
fectly marvelous. 

I recently came East to see my 
eldest son who w-ai, graduating 
from Yale University, and I told 
Mr. Chilson, since I have received 
such Wonderful benefits through 
him, that I desired to see and 
know Father Divine. So on our 
trip from New Haven down to 
■U'ashington, Mrs. Lineberger, my 
fon and 1, stopped here and we 
had a very Wonderful 15 minutes' 
time granted to us by Father Divine 
in this Building. 

"I have traveled in various parts 
of the World, — Europe and .^sia, 
— and have studied Philosophy, 
Society, and all Religions, but the 
■Words that fell from Father Di- 
vine's lips seemed to me to be 
absolutely inspired. I asked Him 
in my methodical way, various 
questions. Without hesitation of 
any kind, and with the penetration 
that must be Divine, He gave 
answers just like that. (Snapping 
his fingers quickly.) 

".Now I want to publicly ac- 
knowledge my thanks to Father 
for the things that have happened 
in my affairs because of this In- 
fluence which I attribute to Him. 
Other than that, I am leaving for 
California tonight. My wife and 
son have driven on several days 
ago. but I wanted to come and see j/. 
Father again, so I just got off up 
at Morningside Height*. and I 
slowly walked through this .Area. 
I want to say this: I have been 
in all parts of the World, doing 
what is generally known as going 
into the various sections. I have 
been for a time on the Eastside of 
London. I have been in the dense- 
ly populated cities of Asia and 
China, but I have never observed 
in my entire career, the orderliness 
and the gentility of the people as 
I walked through this .-Xrea. .Many 
of them, — paj-ticularly one little 
chap whose ball hit me, — he came 
and apologized- 

"There must be ,'^omcthing truly 
Wonderful about the Regeneration 
of this Area, which is spreading all 
ove^the Countrj-. I notice up there 
the words that Father Divine is the 
only Redemplio)! of man. That 
certainly has proved itself here, and 
everywhere this Influence touches 
it is spreading and it is doing the 
same thing. Now if you can grOrv 
one stock of corn from one grain 
of cofn, you can grow a billion. It 
is the Principle that is at w-ork. 
and that Principle undoubtedly is 
a Rcdemptional Principle, saving 
the bodies ar<: purifying the minds, 
bringing about that unity .of man- 
kind which must result in Brother- 
ly Love and factual and actual, as 
well as theoretical equality. That is 
my observation and* niy belief, 
through being here today, and .1 
thank you very much."

If you read carefully of the

exalted themselves above measure

Christ as the Redeemer of all man-

to regular standing with the Su-

Jurisdictions which have been au- 
ppended because of their non-pay-

said the apostle. 

Therefore, because of the fulfill- 
ment of the Scripture according to 
2nd Psalms: "The heathens are 
raging and the people are imagin- 
ing vain thing*," the prejudicial, 
bigoted inhabitants of the earth are 
ra^'ing because of the aiptarin^ of

they are heathens beneath t'r.e ;

to ME to make an attack on ME- 
They do it because they know they 
have but a short time, and God 
Supreme, shall reign from this 
an^'e and from this State of Con- 
sciousness wherein I stand, for i* 
is written: "Righteousness and 
I'ldgn-ient is the habitation of His 
Throne, and the earth taw and 
trembled." I can see every mortal

dicial and seifisl* tendencies tretnb-

on the throne of the minds of mil- 

Of those that are liviniSf in mor-

enough to think that God is bound 
to race, creed or color, tbev are 
beneath the STANDARD of

Officials of the Metropolitan 
Water District and representatives 
of the foothill cities and citrus 
area have opened negotiations to 
work ' out a satisfactory plan that 
will. enable the foothill area to par. 
ticipate in the use of Colorado 
River Aqueduct water. 

These negotiations were set un- 
der way following the appearance 
before the District Board of Di- 
rectprs last Friday of a delega- 
tioni of civic leaders and citrus 
ranchers from a number of foot- 
hill cities. 

Apting as spokesman for the 
gTotfp was J. R. Shoemaker of 
ClaSetconl, engineer for the La- 
Verne and Pomona Protective As- 
sociation. Other members of the 
delegation were H. C. Warren of 
Gleiidora. manager of the Consoli- 
dated Mutual Irrigating Company;

"in view cf insufficient rainfall

Stop, stop, look! and read care- 
fully. Then ask yourself a ques- 
tion—if you are really giving 
yourself and family justice to be 
a slave to the landlord, Dont pay 
his mortgage off by paying him 
rent. Buy a home and pay it to 
yoursplf and beloved family. 

Study this: If you own a part 
of the earth's surface, under just 
government, you own one form 
of wealth that cannot be taken 
from you. If you own the land on 
which your home stands, you 
have siecurity for. your family, 
Mr. A, A. Gittens conunenta: 
Those asking, "How can I invest 
what I havtf wisely?" you might 
bear that in mind. The g^round 
under your feet cannot run away, 
cannot be stolen. Land ovirnership 
is the best foundation of pros- 
perity and security under just 

There is no sounder investment 
than well chosen real estate 
bought at todays low price value. 
If you don't think that property 
ia selling fast to colored people, 
just t&kje a ride through 28th 
street west of Western avenue to 
Arling^ton and you will see for 
yourself. Eight places were sold In 
the last two weeks on 29th place 
and 28th street to colored people. 
More power to Vou who are In- 
vestors. You are on the right road 
now for wealth when you invest 
in the earth.

Many persons have asked re- 
cently. I'd like to buy a nice 
home, but I am fearful of my 
own judgroent. How can I be cer- 
tain that I am buying choice Real 
Estate? That question ia a rath- 
er simple one to answer, yet vol- 
umes could be written along the 
subject: How to buy and where 
to buy good Real Estate. There 
are so many different angles 
briefly here are ten f>oints to re- 
member : 

First, do not buy in a hurry, 
think it over flr.^t. 

Second, give the same, or even 
more consideration to the pur- 
chase of a hom^ that you would 
give to a new automobile. Is It 
modem? In what condition will it 
be ten years, twenty years from 
now? ,18 It in a good neighbor- 
hood? Are there restrictions? 
Will next year's models out mode 
It? Can you afford it? 

Third, check the history of the 
community In which you wish to 
live. Make certain that it has 
many years of growth ahead of 
It so your home may be sold easi- 
ly if necessary. 

Fourth avoid extreme architec- 
tual designs, it may be what you 
want, but will it attract the aver- 
age buyer when you want to sell 
It later? There is just as much 
risk in being too far ahead as too 
far behind. 

Fifth, architectual restrioUons 
are very important, you may be 
buying a home where your "eigh- 
bor to erect a $10,000 brick 
mausoleum house or a piano hox 

_ Sixth, do not 'o'ly an •Tpvtnslve 
home just to compete with the 
Rockerfellers or the Joneses, buy 
within your means, and be reason- 
ablely certain that you can m»et 
the monthly payments, upkeep 

Seventh, don't buy a home be- 
cause It originally cost $10 'HW 
and you can get it for $5,000, De- 
termine If it is worth $5,000 and 
then check to se v/hat yen can 
buUd for $3,000 remember you 
want a home in a nelghbtv.hood 
where you can play and enjoy 
life, where your family will want 
to spend their evenings, holidays 
and. Sundays. 

Tenth, last but not least, Real 
EsUte Is the best Investment In 
the world. If carefully selected, 
aont buy reai- esUte to use as 
speculation, biiy it to make you

"Pageant of Negro Progress" Pkases 


Los Angeles rubbing elbows with Hollywood, film center of 
the world, may have witnessed many things more stupendous 
and more lavishly produced than the "Pageant of Negro Pro- 
gress" written and directed by Mrs. C. A. Bats, editor of the 
California Eagle, but it Is safe to say nothing ha* been previoue- 
ly produced which offered an equal amount of true Negro 

Those wno were rortunaie enougn to attend the pageant at 
the Masonic Temple, 1050 East 50th Street, en Friday evening, 
July 26th, carried away with them a broader view and « deeper 
conception of the real progress of the Negro from the time he 
landed, a chattel slave, down to our present day Negroes who 
are leaders in business, government ofrieials, artist* of world 
renown, noted scientists, and agriculturlata. 

I can't help but feel that this pageant should b« made an 
annual affair. Like the universal appeal of the Pilgrim Play, 
this "Pageant of Negro Progress" has a direct and definite ap. 
pel to every American Negro. First, it gives th* lie to that old 
trite phrase we hear so much, "What has th* Negro ever done 
worthwhile?" Second, It would give the young Negro added 
stimulation to achieve In a biased world, when th*y realized 
just how rmjch other Negroes had done bofors them under much 
greater handicaps than we face today. 

Every participant Is to be congratulatod tor thsir part In 
the Pageant. Espoclally fine were Hilton PhMlips„ Harry L*. 
vette. Eagle sports and theatrical writer; Blllle Hutcherson, 
John Lanlor, Minnie Albrltton, Stev* Lockett, E. Htibort sod

Big Damage Suit Filed Against Teletype 
Company By Woman; Largest Filed Here 

What is regarded as one of the largest law suits ever filed by 
a colored person In Los Angeles County was begun in Federal Court.s 
last Tuesday when Attorney Curtis C. Taylor, on behalf of Mrs. An- 
nett* Warmick filed a suit against the Teletype Company and various 
tLffUiated subsidiaries for damages rising out of an alleged Infringe- 
ment <rf Mrs. Warmlck's patent : 

on the teletype machine. 

The complaint states that Mrs.: 
Warmick is the sole Inventor and 
holder of the patent rlgbta to the 
teletype system of -transmitting 
mesages, but that her patent and 
ideas were atcden from her by 
parties through fraud, and that 
the present teletype machine now 
In use universally and through- 
out the country are manufactur- 
ed as the results of Infringement 
upon her patent. She demands an 
Mounting; of aU the profits which 
have been received since the ma- 
chine was first put dn .the market.

Stebbins in his affair called Holly,

the natural sequence if you think 
of our artists as the Ambassadors

"No one but a fool would fight 
in the plains,' the Emperor told 
me, and his policy is sound. 

"The road to Addis Ababa, the 
capital, and ultimate conquest is 
strewn with difficulties for a Eu- 
ropean army. 

"It is true that water is to be 
had in the hills. It is true that 
you leave behind the heat and the 
disease of the desert land. 

"But it takes time to get accli- 
mated to the heights in which the 
Ethiopians are at home. 

"Some Europeans take a month 
to get used to the rarefied air at 
heights of 7,000 and 8,000 feet. 
Some take a year. A mill climb 
is agony without equipment. It 
will be a panting army that tries 
to force its way through the bould- 
er-strewn moimtains. 

"All the time it wiU be fighting 
an almost Invisible army that can 
move from point to point with in- 
credible swiftness. 

"It will be fighting men whose 
one ambition is to die in battle. 
Although Christians, the fighting 
men of Ethiopia are fatalists. All 
their sins are forgiven by the 
priests before they go into battle. 
Death in war is the direct road 
to heaven. 

"They have their priests In the 
rearguard to comfort them. They 
have their women to tend to their 
supply. Each soldier carries a 

small bag of dried beans that will 
feed him for at least a month. 

"He carries a knife which is 
used for picking thorns from his 
bare feet, or for cutting up ani- 
mals that he catches and eats raw. 
The whole army, wives and priests 
included, caji run for miles on 
end even in this mountainous 

"Hidden among the mountains 
they can vanish from ant point 
and appear at another to renew 
tbe attack with incredible speed. 

"They are excellent shots, and 
excel at sniping. Those who have 
not rifles will fight with spears. 
Heavy casualties will not deter 
them. Of what use airplanes 
against this phantom army? Of 
what use tanks in this rocky land ? 

'These are some of the prob- 
lems that the Italian generala 
wil have to face. 

"The modem mechanised army 
may win through. But it must 
be a slow business. 

"Every march forward will have 
to be made with large vanguards, 
rearguards and flank guards to 
prevent surprise. Heavy guards 
wil have to be kept to protect tbe 
lines of communications. 

"And if airplanes, the eyea of 
the army, fall in the craggy 
heights, hundreds of men will have 
to be kept alert i)ight and day In 
the deadly game of hide and seek 
at which the Ethiopian soldier is 
past master."

Snow, th': pro«to:er. 

Lait week a few of the kxal 
raga piay«4 op the incidettt to 
Xhm higlMat, whfa pictures, fca- 
tare ttariaa, hiadHnn. etc In- 
f fUgati on. how«T«r, baa reveal- 
ed that at the tiroc the former I 
choriaes icft the Cotton Clob on- 
ly four of the girls on the pic- 
ture of the so-called "iwBgaast 
chorines'* were employed there at 
the time ol the adrent of Miss 
Snow and her talented fansband, 
Nyaa Berry. They were Emma 
Priestley. Cleo Heradon, Ruth 
Scott, and Myrtle Fortune. 
Valaida' has kept Ma< Johnson 
lof the origfinal group) and Jnanita 
Moore, who has been elevated to 
a principal by the croducer. The 
other* who iorm that "thin line" 
of pulchritude are either from N. 
V.or Chicago. 

It seems, from what Ms pil- 
lar levncd from both sides, that 
the ciwnu which was employed 
there at the time Miss Snow be- 
gan producing, kicked when they 
learned that naorc work would be 
required with no immediate ad- 
vance in wages. Valaida is said 
to have offered them, however. 
every iadncemcnt to stay — make 
the most of the situation and 
paaaibly in time the conditions 
would necessarily be bettered. It 
appeared, however, that the chor- 
us was still not satisfied and 
wrote Sebastian, the proprietor, 
a letter outlining their grievances, 
which, in his opinion, apparently 
maant little ntxler the circnm- 
itances. It was then that he £- 
legedly toVd Miss Snow, as the 
new producer, to get eastern tal- 
ent. And even then. "Valaida" 
aascrtedly uaed her every resource 
to see that the chorines stayed 
"To show ho-v I felt about the 
whoFe thing." ja>-s Miss Snow, "I 
even asked Nfr. Sebastian to use a 
chorus of sixteen girls, including 
the eastern and the local talent." 
This way out. is als^i said to have 
been rpiu«ed by the former Cotton 
Club rhoros. The eastern talent 
was then molded into the unit that 
at present is pleasing the rlu'n's 

To say that the svbole thing. 
to come up as it did. with the re- 
suiting anpicasantnesa was un- 
fortunate, is to put it mildly. 
And it is to be hoped that in the 
future mch "croeeing of wires". 
as it were, will serve to advance 
the portaea concerned is pufaik a^ 
ttmatioa. rather than retard them.

A couple of yi^ars ago a very 
prominent colored motion picture 
character granted an Interview to 
a woman reporter of the niustrat- 
•d Dally Newa A Just howl of 
coBdemnatlon went up from all 
quarters over his quoted state- 
ments. The California Eagle came 
ta his rescue and raked some 
mighty hot chestnuts out of the 
flra, and did its bit to quash the 
severe criticism be was justly re- 

To show his appreciation and 
rapay the Eagle for its kindness in 
helpiag him out of his embarrass- 
ing position, last Friday night 
when he was called upon and in- 
vited to lend his talent to the oc- 
casion, to the surprise and chag- 
rined disgust of the audience, be 
immadiately drew his hammer, and 
bagan knocking and belittling the 
affair, and wound up by stating 
that he was sorry they had even 
called upon him. I want to com- 
pllment the gentleman upon his 
nerve and gratitude to take ad van. 
tage of such an opportunity to 
viciously attack the efforts of one 
urtio had previously befriended 
him. For the second time within 
a month he "cut a hog." I'm sor- 
ry the several years of experience 
and contact he has had with the 
motion picture industry as an ac- 
tor has not baen long enough to 
acquaint him with tact, dignity and 

feelings of representative citizens 
whose efforts are not to nlhke 
monkeys out of our citizenry, but

Those who h«ve known Dr. Du 
Bois only as the bitterly sarcastic 
or the coldly furious critic of white 
oppressor* of the darker races must 
, naturally wonder whether he could 
write a hi'jtory ol the most contro- 
vfr«ial period of lii« race's ■'trugRles 
in America. One should remember, 
however, that the former militant 
editor of The Crisis was also i

P.bcU- TJoroiiSiruction reveals Dr. 
Di'Tois as both the merciless critic 
and the coiistrjctive historian. In 
tiic last chapter, "The Propaganda 
of History," he has penned some of 
the most stintone castiffstfons of 
'iPUTican hstorians sincetiie con-

w.n a sl.ive lioltirr, Dunn-iig a Cop-

ter fi:;: will s vr a clue to the 
task the historian has set for him- 

That task is to rehabilitate the 
Xcgro .Tt the bar of history. Now, 
there are two kinds of rehablllt.i- 
tion. The one disregknls the

The other method seeks merely to

North, South, East and West the 
fertile field.s of literary material 
are being developed more intense- 
ly than ever before. There is no 
ploughing under of the new crop 
of budding wTlters! 

The old South has always given 
s:enerously of its romantic glamor 
to the imaginative writer. Today 
there is springing up a new school 
of southem writers who are 
thinking in terms of modern real- 
Ism. The South is sUll, io some 
extfnt, a family affair: every cri- 
tlcijsm of the South is taken as 
personal, and converse!;.-, every 
Southerner is held responsible for 
the entire South. 

Because Alabama starts off the 
alphabet, and because there are 
a number of interesting hooka 
written about this state, this 
seems to be a logical place to be- 
grin book-majoping America. 

"Siseta", a new • novel by Berry ' 
Fleming is laid in a typical Ala- 
bama town and tells the story of 
what a hot summer there did to a 
dozen or so of natives and visitors, 
black and white. Mr. Fleming 
is a modernist in the treatment <d 
his material and he puts across 
very effectively the atmoBphere

The people who remember arc wondering if, in the 
case of Italy and Ethiopia at the present, will the Stim- 
son Doctrine be a definite part of America's international 
policy, which means that she will recognize no results 
from a war between Ethiopia and Italy. 

It i:; said 


Very few bond elections receive other than 
doing" from tax paying citizens these days, 
that the State Capitol for the first time since its comple- 
^n in 1874 will change its interior architecture if the 
May 1 3th election Proposition No. 1 is approved by the 
vote of the people. 

According to information coming out of Sacramento 
voting for the passage of Proposition No. 1 3 will save 
the state $57,000 yearly now being paid out in rents for 
^pace in various buildings in the Capitol City. But too 
often have the people bf en told that their taxes would not 
Increase and like lambs they have been lead to the slaugh- 
ter of higher and higher tax rates. 

We the people of California desire that our State capi- 
iol should look as nice as any capitol of any other State, 
but if this improvement means an increase in taxes and 
assessments for us poor little ones who live on a crust of 
bread to keep a roof over our heads, we suggest that in 
order to cut down on rents, that some of the useless com- 
Biissions, especially those which occupy desk space upon 
l^hich the feet of those who toil not nor spin rests, 
ishould be eliminated. 


"Ever since the war between Italy and Ethiopia became 
an even bet we've been listening for the atrocity barrage. 
It has started. 

"Italy officially charges Ethiopian tribesmen with 'mu- 
tiliating children' in a 'mass attack' on 'the defenseless 
natives of Eritrean Danakil.' 

"We'd expected something more original. 'Mutilated 
children' was a favorite in the ancient wars between 
iTurks and Christians. In every Balkan war it has been 
hauled out and served over again. During the Worid 
JVar it saw hard service, 

"Unofficially, in recent weeks more imagination has 
been shown. The charge that the Italians planned to scat- 
ter chemicals behind Ethiopian lines to bum the feet off 
the bare-footed natives showed more ingenuity. So did 
fhe story that the Ethiopians scheme to turn lions on 11 
Duce's men. 

"We have had more than enough of atrocity stories — 
whichever side puts them out. 

**War itself is an atrocity. No nation has ever gone to 
war, however civilized, that did not commit atrocities in 
ftis and all other countries, even in peace time. War 
-merely affords a larger outlet for cruelty. 

"The object of wartime atrocity stories is to arouse the 
public against the alleged perpetrator. Italy seeks to 
■nke people believe that in invading Ethiopia she is do- 
taj civilization's job. Which, of course, is not true. ' 

*^taly is said already to have spent more than $600,- 
.000,000 preparing for conflict in Africa. One-tenth that 
.■Bount, used to build roads, schoolhouses, hospitals and 
Wtothots, would have had a far greater civiliang influ-

A very well tHR. friend of mine 
Just banded me a copy of July — 
"The American Greeter" a maga- 
zine of Hotel Greeters. On . ita 
cover page are the following — 
"Get Going — 

If you are going good, Get go- 
ing Better", 

A very good slogan, after glanc- 
ing over ' this magazine and ob- 
serving pictures of leading hotels 
in the United States, it prompted 
the writer to make ment'on of the 
fact, that If these proprietors of 
hotels through out the U. S. A. 
and' the railroads would let down 
their "Jim Crow Bar's" and wel- 
come Black Americans as their 
guests that can well afford the 
comforts of travel and lodging, it, 
"The American Greeter" would 
fulfill all that ita name implies. 

"Why not Negro hotels?" The 
Negroea in all parta of U. S. A. 
are erecting and opening hotels, 
but the difficulty of travel, goes 
further towards hindering their 
progress. Those able to travel by 
train are in the south denied the 
rlghta of dining and Pullman car 
service. A law of "FULL RIGHTS 



"We have decided upon a strug- 
gle in which we, as a government 
and people, will not turn back. 
The decision is irretrievable," de- 
clared Mussolini in an address to 
Fascist troops referring to the 
present Italian-Abyssinian contro- 
versies. II Duce does not further 
explain the imderlying necessity 
of his present program. To the ob- 
server, mingling with the peasanta 
and workers in Italy, the dilemma 
of the Fascist leaders is manifest. 

Fascism is losing ita hold on the 
Italian heart and mind, has been 
doing so for the past two years. 
Mussolini, realizing this, cast 
about for a move which would 
further the cause of his dying 
.prestige. On the African horizon 
loomed Abyssinia, rich and of 
temperate climate; a vast land 
which could accomodate the sur- 
plus populaUon of Italy. Eight 
years ago II Duce preached, 
"Propagate, that we descendanta 
of ancient Rome may have sons 
for our army." A bonus of 1000 
Lire (about $100.00) was offered 
every family for each additional 
son after the fifth child. Working 
Twople and pcpr peasants dumped 
tbeir thousand-Lire-valued pounds 
fo flesh upon the Italian market 
by the tens of thousands. Today 
the population is in excess of 45,- 
000,000; villages and cities are 
over-crowded ; ragged, under-fed 
urchins clutter the back alleys. 
An ouUet was necessary so Abys- 
sinia was chosen as the easiest 
plot of land to annex. 

I have heard from reliable 
sources that n Duce's first hostile 
move against Negro Empire was 
merely a big bluff by which he 
ho.ped to frighten Haile Selas&ie, 
Emperor of Ayssinia, into accept- 
ing an Italian protectorate. But 
the SemeUc-featured King of 
Kings called the Italian bluff by 
declaring, "We cannot be bought, 
we are not eatUe. We are prepar- 
ed to defend our rlghta as the 
white nations of the world have 
done through history, and as we 
also have formerly done.'' 

The unexpected stand of Selas- 
sie 1, came after Italy had spent 
some 110,000,000 in playing her 
"bluff"; 15,000 men had been sent 
to Somaliland and Eritrea in adi- 
dition to expensive new equipment 
Then, to have called back those 
men and to have presented the 
Italian people with a $10,000,000 
deficit would have been the final 
blow to Fascism in Italy. To his' 

sary to health. Salt and sugar are 
beyond the means of the lower 
classes as are butter and eggs; 
taxes on foods so that an army 
may be equipped to uphold the 
prestige of a political party and 
preserve the egotism of one man! 

Mussolini must have success in 
the coming camaign or he is 
doomed. Recent figures quoted by 
Finance Minister dlRevel of Italy, 
show that Italy's expenditures to 
date are in excess of $300,000,000; 
General de Bono, who commands 
the African forces, claims to have 
at present 500,000 men under 
arms; experts claim that within 
a year there will be over a million 
men on Africa's shores. Fascism 
has crossed ita "Rubicon"; a 
Black Shirt die is cast, but the 
casting of that die mr.y be the 
cause of another European war. 
France backs Italy; England, 
with a possible German-Polish al- 
liance, waits, but with a hostile 
eye on Italy. Italian control in 
Abyssinia would hamper present 
English concessions on Lake 
Tsana. source of water supply for 
the entire;- Sudan. Also Italy 
would benefit by wealthy oil 
leases England has been develop- 
ing In the; Negro Empire. 

It is predicted in diplomatic 
circles that after six months of 
war-fare Abyssinia wll) have pow- 
erful allies as well as Italy. 

War rumblings are to be hesird 
over all Europe, echoes of the 
throbbing cadences of Africa's 
signal drums. The King of Kings 
has issued manifestos and warn- 
ings to his people. The messages 

Tis the Set 
Of the Sail 

It Is human nature to criUcise 
and condemn our fellow beings. 
But whether this trait, 1» to be vic- 
iously used to one's detriment, and 
"human nature" used aa an ex- 
cuse is quite another question. 

Name the man or woman who 
Is perfect in thought, word and 
deed, and I will lead you to their 
tombs. Pick out that individual 
wiio has unselfishly labored to lift 
his brother to a "higher plane and 
a nobler view" of life, and I will 
pobit you to Golgotha's rugged 
crest. There, impaled upon a 
cross of human criticism with 
steely spikes fashioned out of acta 
of love and kindness, you will see 
hiu 'wnithing amidst the jeers of 
the misunderstanding rabble. The 
world has evier crucified ita sa- 
viours. * 

Before openly condemning the 
resulta of individual action, the 
causes motivating that action 
should be taken into consideration. 
An ancient sage once said: "Three 
things come not back — the spok- 
en word the aped' frrow, the neg- 
lected opportunitir." To give ut- 
terance to thoughta that might 
place a well-meaning person in a 
false light or cause his heart to 
bleed after he has done his best, 
is the acme of indiscretion. The 
words cannot be recalled. Apolo- 
gies may be made and the wound 
healed but the unsightly scar will 
ever rema'n. 

After all, we wonder if those in- 
dividuals are not the truly great 
who live by certain ideals (call 
them "cranks" if you will); who 
aim to disseminate those ideals 
among their fellowmen; who never 
miss an opportunity to try to do 
something constructive. Their 
methods may be crude, they may 
fail utterly, but the spirit of the 
deed is eternal. The ideal of 
loin-clothed, herb-eating Mabatma 
Ghandl will withstand the bow 'of 
•centuries. The peace program of 
Father Divine cannot be coatra- 
diclfcd. The Golden, Rule remains 
the greatest measuring rod for 
human action of all times.

a thing. Life is made absolutely 
miserable for Negro boys here in 
Company 1950 CCC, Lake Hughes, 
Calif., by a race man (Roger 
Gaines) aiding segregation and 
compelling Negro boys to bow to 
white boys. 


He willingly applies for the 
hardest tasks and the rudest tools 
for the colored boys and is sure 
at all times that they do the hard- 
est work and irt many cases the 
work of the white boys, while they 
stand in the shade or sit in the 


This Negro is doing this partly 
to attain leadership and because 
of his 'type of knowledge and to 
reclve a few dollars more than 
the average, but in reality, he is a 
terrific blow to the Negro's pres- 
tige. This causes the whites to 
feel superior to us and that we 
are not as good as they are. 

chagrin, MusaoUnl must contbiue spent to keep their nationality 

in th« game. The tremendous 
cost of a pending Afriian cam-

painful hardships, which are ap-

Every housewife should thor- 
oughly famiUariu herself with 
prices, sizes, and grades. Food 
buying is a science, and should be 
studied aa such. An Intelligent 
buyer can give her family much 
better food at a lower cost than 
the ha.nhaxard buyer. Read this 
article written by Eunice Marsh, 
it may be of great help to you in 
your marketing and the very 
thing you need in budgeting the 
family income. 

In budgeting the family income, 
25 per cent is commonly alloted 
for food. Surely when so much 
money is spent on food, the house- 
wife should thoroughly under- 
9 -and the art of buying, so that 
the best food possible may be pro- 
cured for the money spent The 
snialler the Income the more care- 
ful must be the planning, in order 
that nourishing, well-balanced 
meals may be served. 

Tbe cost of food d^pendgi large- 
ly on the amount of labor and the 
price of material required to pro- 
duce it, the transportation charg- 
es, and the perishability of the 
foodstuff. For example, green 
vegetables that grow- freely frcwn 
seed may be purchased from a 
near-by roadside stand for much 
less than is charged for out-Of- 
season fruita or vegetables deliv- 
ered at your door. Again, pre.narr 
ed cereals are as much as four 
times as expensive as raw cereals. 

Perhaps it woul^ be well to con- 
sider briefly the .types of stores 
that may be patrohlzed. 

Credit-and-delivi^ stores are 
rather expensive .because of the 
bookkeeping the bad accounta, the 
expensive of maintaining a deliv- 
ery system and the larger' sales 
force required. If your time and 
energy are limited, this type of- 
fers good service, but at added 

Cash and carry stores operate 
at less expensive, even though a 
larger salesroom is required. Oft- 
en, they belong to a chain system 
which buys at a reduction be- 
cause large quantities are pur- 
chased at one time. One investiga. 
tlon showed a saving of from five 
to seven centa per person per 
day when the purchaser paid cash 
and carried home what he bought. 

Public marketa are becoming 
increasingly popular. Here prices 
are lower than in other stores. Be- 
cause of the volume of business, 
their fruita and vegetables are us- 
ually fresh. 

A careful housewife keeps a 
"want list" of the kinds and 
amounta of foods to be purchased. 
Then, when she goes to the store 
of her choice, she not only geta 
better service but can often eco- 
nomize by buying in bulk provid- 
ed she has sufficient storage 
room. Dried fruita, legumes, fata, 
sugar, flour, package goods, can- 
ned goods, potatoes, and many 
other foods are considered "good 

Ordering by telephone is a 
common practice and may be sat- 
isfactory as a rule; but frequent 
personal visita to the store are 




advisable. By going to the atore 
one keeps Informed on what foods 
are in aeaaon, and tbeae may be 
used, to vary the menus at reason- 
able coat One alao gains a know- 
ledge of current prices aitd of 
What foods are new on the mar- 

Learn to understand the gro- 
cer's language. It is not difficult, 
and will make you a better buyer. 
Here is a convenient table of 
sizes in cans that couM readily be 
memorized : 

Can No. 1—11 ounces; 1 
cups; number served 3. 

Can No. 2—20 ounces; 2 
ci'.os; number served 5. 

Can No. 3 — 33 ounces; 4 cups; 
number served 8. 

Can No. 5 — 3 pounds, 8 ounces; 
7 cups; number served 14. 

Can No. 10 — 6 pounds lOoz; 
13 cups; number served 26. 

If you were buying canned peas 
or com for a family of two, and 
no left-over is desired, a No. 1 
can is the can to buy. But it 
would often be cheaper to pur- 
chase a No. 2 can, at less than 
double the cost, and use the left- 
over for a soup, salad, or cro- 
quettes for another meal. In al- 
most every instance it is cheaper 
to buy one large can rather than 
two small cans that yield an equal 

Fresh foods are often perish- 
able, and such loss adds to the 
cost, sometimes as much as 
doubling it Cold storage helps 
here, but such foods deterioate 
rapidly when removed frcwn stor- 
age. Canned foods permit a varie- 
ty that would otherwise be impos- 
sible. TTiey may even be of better 
quality than fresh, and may be 
incorporated in varied and delici- 
ous dishes, for the ingredienta of 
a recipe may be either fresh or 

In buying canned food, consider 
the use for which it is intended. 
Familiarity with the grading of 
canned 'goods will help in your ef- 
fort to buy acording to the use 
to which the food is to be put The 
following terms are used to indi- 
cate the quality of canned goods: 

1. Extra fancy — finest quality: 
smooth, desirable size, good col- 
or and -flavor. 2. Fancy— excel- 
lent quality. 3. Choice, or extra 
standard — not quite so good as 
fancj'. 4. Standard — good quality, 
sound material, of good stock, 
average color. 5. Second, or sub- 
standard — Inferiour to standard, 
but meeta all Pure Food requlrc- 

So, j'ou see, if you were using 
pineap.Dle in f. dessert or in a 

fruit salad, it would not be neces- 
sary to buy extra fancy fruit 
with ita unbroken slices. Broken 
slices or titbit pieces would be 
cheaper, and often of equal or 
superior flavor, as the pineapple 
is riper. The same might be said 
of vegetables for soups, purees, 
stews, and like dishes. Remember 
that "grade"' indicates differences 
in quality and condition, rather 
than in food value, though the bet- 
tar grades of fruita are in heavier 
syrup, which would make that dif-

138TH ST. AND 7TH 




JULY 25, 1935 

TIME: 1055 P. M. 

The Renaissance Casino. Seventh 
^Avenue at 1.18th street, New York 
•City, was the setting lor an out- 
:slanding demonstration to the Po- 
'liical world, Thursday Evening, 
Jtily 2Sth, of what it means to any 
Orf^anization or individual to have 
Father Divine in its affairs. Thf 
ecrasion was a Mass MretJnK heiJ 
■tnder the auspices of the Alogn- 
<iuin F. D. Roosevelt Democratic 
'lub, the purpose heing to announce 
the Candidacy of Mr. Archibald M- 
Ray for Leader of the Nineteenth 
Assembly District. 

^Through the invitation tf Mr. 
Kar a^ the Club, Father and the 
Followers had been asked to par- 
ticipate, and at an eariy hour in 
the evening many of th-m were on 
liand, but the great dance iiall wit'i 
its booths, balconies and gaily col- 
ored awnings was by no means fil- 
led. The Meeting, which had been 
publicly advertised, went on ac- 
cording to schedule, and presented 
M a picture, the niakc-up of the 
aroters in the District, and their in- 
terest in Tntitical afTairs,— the Fol- 
lowers of Father being overwliel- 
jningly in the majority. 
; Father Personally, had made no 
Announcement of the Meeting, how- 
kver, and at 10 o'clock He *vas Per- 
sonally at the Ban(|uet Table in 
i4is liSth Street Headquarters. At 
3five minutes past 10. He announce^ 
^hat He would be going immediate- 
Jy to the Mass Meeting, but that go 
jone need follow Him uniess they 
'^isKed to. Then followed one of 
Jthese Demonstrations that have 
mmazed the leaders and the orga- 
Jnixers everywhere. In fifteen minu- 
9tc» Father was at the Hall and 
Sjhere were thousands wfth Him. 
JFrom nowhere, they seemed to ap- 
jpear. Certainly they had not all 
:Keen at 115th Street. The passers- 
jhy in the streets, and the crowds 

J from Seventh Avenue, followed that 
ineat tide into the Hall until every 
jarailable standing space and foot- 
ekotd wa-s occupied. 
^ Ai Father sat on the Stage with 
iHi* Staff and the Officers of the 
Schib, He looked out over the thou- 

• aandt gathered, as they are daily 
gin -His Presence wheresoever He 
3aiay be, and spontaneously He 
J Sang.— 

I ''The Abundance of the Fullness of 
'\ alt good things.

^ Irt a-plenty to eat, to drink and to 
J wear. etc. -v^

The Cttairman and Vice-Chair- 
man of the Chib spoke briefly, after 
which the Secretary introduced Mr. 
Ray. rrhnt a short hiatory of his 



("I'lace FAiHERI" responded 
a mighty host.) . . . Fi'stiy. I 
shouii! have »:.iii ''.Mr. Cliairnian, 
ladies and fteiitlcmen." Apparent- 
ly, I cinnot ■ o-rplefeiv pet awav 
from MYSIil.F. Wheri-sotvcr I 
go and whLro-uo\er I be, I find 
that ! AM i;;erf and I AM hi-rc. 
I find it is a matter of fact. 

"Here you arc and there T AM, 
There I sit and here you stand." 

At times 1 feel as if t'loush I 
could just get away a '.iltle from 
MYSELF and reach out and meet 
the .ii;.'ses as thty stand, .i'i.| speak 
in .hfi languj:;e, that t.icy might 
understapd ME, but ;tr'Pa''cn»iy, 
where5oe\4er I go and wiieresotver* 
I be. I find MYSELF in the ma- 
jority. (Applause.) I find I mu«f 
speak in MY owri Language where- 
in you are BORN, for you can well 
understand MY Language, as you 
are born by the same. It is in- 
deed Wonderful! 

So much for that. I will not go 
further at this juncture, but I mere- 
ly rise to say. as being invited to 
speak here tonight, as a Represen- 
tative of every good Cause, where- 
soever there has been an organized 
Body, If I feel that I can be of 
some service, I AM willing to con- 
tribute MY Service, as a Free Will 
WORKER. It happens to be on 
this occasion, I have been invited 
to attend this Political Meeting, of 
which I AM a part. I must stress 
thir thought for it has long since 
been said by some, "those who are 
Religiously inclined, should stay in 
their own especial hne," but the 
average person has not stopped to 
consider, we have something to do 
with Politics, for if you do not 
have something to do with Politics, 
Politics will have something to do 
v/ith you. It has been having some- 
thing to do with us all along the 
line, therefore, through the Con- 
descendence of the CHRIST MIND 
to the children of men, this MIS- 
SION in it, I came to bring to ycu 
the RIGHTEOITS IDEA concern- 
ing Politics and every other ex- 
pression of life, remember, JESUS 
the Great LOVEMASTER, when 
HE sent H's Disciples out, HE 
said, "Go into all the World and 
teach all Nations-" If we were to 
stop in Religion, our WORK 
would be in vain, but as ,a MIS- 
SION to go into all of the World, 
this PEACE MISSION has been 
organized to go into all of the 
fields of Life, and to help where we 
can, and do our bit wheresoery 
man is found. 

At this time, it becomes MY 
duty to stand in this Audience and 
in this Assembly for the purpose of 
conveying a few thoughts of MY 
MIND concerning the RIGHTE- 
we are advocating. Firstly, as 
Solomon saiif on one occasion: 

"I have taught you in the way of 
wisdom. I have led you into the 
right path. When Thou goest. 
Thou shall not stnnnble, and when 
Thou rufwest, Thou shall not 
fall." .... or words to this effect. 
TWa I have endeavored to do, by i 
_ instrtKting you of the significanee 

extenttve career. Mr. Ray in turn { „( ,„ Education, by instructing you 

Moke briefly, pcesenting Father 
Tenonatlr to the Audience, as the 
One that all were waiting to hear. 
Al Father aiww to Speak, a 
mighty Demonstration took place, 
a«d thoMands sprang to their feet 
shenting their Loye and tU»r de- 
v«tion to Him Whom twenty-one

of the significance of h«coming to 
he American Citizens, that i». n 
you wish to be qualified to aupport 
the pioper party in Office. By this, 
I ha»e encouraged you to go to 
'school. Although your opportuni- 
ties had" been snail in your early 
daji, GOD so ordaiaed that HIS 
SPIRIT and HIS MIND, through 
the Teaching of CHRIST would 
teach all Nations, therefore, our 
method of teaching yoa, »."ot„co"-

compftent and efficient to meet the 
issues of. life, wheresoever one 
arises, therefore, as Solomon said. 
"T have taught you in the way of 

This is not merely an assertion. 
("No FATHER." remarked the 
Assembly.) I believe they all can 
bear witness to what I AM. say- 
ing. If I would have only taught 
you fanaticism of the cultist Re- 
ligion or Religions, I would not 
have been teaching you in the wav 
of WISDOM, from the Fount of 
but knowing oar Mission was to 
reach all masses and all classes, 
it was essential to qualify you sci 
entifically and intellectuaily. soci 
ally, morally and otherwise to meet 
the issues of Life that we all must 
meet some day^ somewhere and 

The time now cometh when you 
must go before the poles to be 
quahfied to meet this important is- 
sue of Life. It was essential to 
study and prove yourselves work- 
men that you might be able to right- 
ly divide the Word of TRUTH, 
and be, eligible for registering and 
voting. It is indeed Wonderful!

but I have harnessed all of huinacii- 
ty's energy ^d all of their men-

Glory and Honor of the ALMIGH- 
TV. Remember, the person you 
vote in Office, is the person you 
nre putting in authority to make 
laws, rules and regulations and to 
control the GOVERNMENT of 
our Constitution, therefore, you be- 
ing under and in this GOVERN- 
MENT, you are controlled by 
those \vhor» you place in Office, 
hence, you should prove yourselves 
workmen and study the character- 
istics of all the candidates. ('Tru- 
ly Wonderful!" came the com- 
ments of the people.) 

We are not merely going by what 
they say. We are studying their 
history — the very life, biography, 
we are studyinff. It is indeed Won- 
derful, and we will prove ourielves 
workmen .... We have Represen- 
tatives and Investigators going 
down to the Board of Aldermen 
practically every day, looking and 
listening to see what they are do- 
ing. We are studying their actions 
and the reaction of them, when you 
speak of ME. We have Secret 
Service Workers as well as they. 
It is indeed Wonderful! We must 
prove ourselves workmen, and find 
out just exactiv how they like 
not like RIGHTEOUSNESS, you 
can s«;e the reaction of their ap- 
pearance and of their countenances, 
when you speak concerning ME. 
but what sayest the Prophet? "I 
will raise a Righteous man from 
the East." It is iiuieed Wonder- 

Somewhere, somehow and by 
some means. RIGHTEOUSNESS 
r^ust be ESTABLISHED in the 
East, and it must be .EST.VB- 
TICE and TRUTH, I have called 
LISHED Universally, therefore, I 
for you." I haye not called for it 
to get some place in a corner and 
be bound to Religion only, but to 
go forth info all the Worlds -in 
every field of Life RIGHTEOUS- 
must be ESTABLISHED, for you 
and it must be ESTABLISHED 
for ME... That is the purpose for 
which I came _ .. .... 

Truly might have David said: 
"Righteousness and Judgment is 
the habitation of His THRONE." 
Remember, your mind, if it is a 
Righteous mind, it is and will be 
rules on the THRONE of your 
minds, and if your Cand-date is 
RIGHTEOl'S and JUST and 
the Throne of his mind. That •« 
the Mystery. 

MENT is the habitation of His 
THRONE. The Earth saw and 
trembled."' Do you not see them 
trembling at the uprising and the 
ingathering of MY People from all 
parti of the Earth? Why? It is 
becaiuse of RIGHTEOUSNESS! 
Lightning, His Revelations and 
His Inspirations enlighten the 
World." "The Earth saw and 
trembled." 1 can see them tremb- 
ling today. 

I will not go very much further 
at this time, because I do not wish 
to bore you. I may bore you with 
MY radical, but yet enthusiastic 
MIND. (A great and joyful ex- 
pression of devotion was manifes- 
ted at this point, indicating the 
audience's appreciation and love to 
FATHER.) But look around and 
von can see the ABUNDANCE of 
the FULLNESS will always fol- 
low ME. Truly might have David 
Mid, "The ABUNDANCE of the 
Sea was converted onto Thee.'' In 
other words, truly might have 
David said: "The wrath of man 
shall Praise Thee," and the other 
Prophet said: "The ABUNDANCE 
of the Sea is converted unto Thee." 
Dors this look like the great Con- 
version? ("Why certainly it does." 
applauded the Assembly.) Does 
this not look like the Gathering of 
the people, according to the Scrip- 
ture, where it is written: "The Law 
shall not depart from Judah, nor 
the Lawgiver from between His 
Fret until SHILOH comes, but 
when SHILOH come, the gather- 
ing of the people »haU be untn 

Do you not see them gathering? 
Law or lawlessness, ya«i can see 
them gathering and the^ are com- 
ti% to this Recofnitioib . "The 

NESS," according to the Compo- 
sition, you heard ns sing it a lit- 
tle while ago: "The ABUN- 
DANCE of the FULLNESS of all 
good things, is wheresoever I 
AM." Then I say that to say 
this, this little Composition you 
heard ME sing, just after I arrived, 
because It' is a matter of positive 
fact, wheresoever I AM the 
ABUNDANCE will come, not 
only collectively as individuals, as 
people, but the ABUNDANCE of 
the FULLNESS of every good and 
desirable Blessing — all good, desir- 
able Blessings are at MY Drspo- 
!ial. All WISDOM, all KNOW- 
ING. aU of the ABUNDANCE of 
the FULLNESS, a plenty of 
MONEY, and every other Bless- 
ing, without asking a person for a 
penny. Now isn't that Wonder- 
ful? ("Truly Wonderful!" re- 
bounded the Throng.) 

This is not a supposition- You 
know within yourselves this is not 
an imigination. You can see it 
daily reflected and manifested, all 
of the ABUNDANCE of the 
FULLNESS is at MY Disposal; 
now why not.DIAL in on the iden- 
tical PRINCIPLE of which I AM 
expressing and you will be Par- 
takers of the Identical Character- 
istics, and being Partakers of the 
same Characteristics, you will also 
Partake of the limitless Blessings 
that the Characteristics bring forth 
into expression, then I say, I de- 
sire to see your honored Candidate, 
be a Partaker of the Identical ex- 
pression in his esp'xial Mission 
and Calling that I AM expressing 
in that which is termed "MINE" 
If he does, he will go OVER the 
TOP; not only this Candidate in 
this particular Branch of the Po- 
litical Party, but every other good 
thinking and right doing Candi- 
date, if they are HONEST, COM- 
PETENT and TRUE, I desire to 
see them blessed as well as you, 
hut remember, these Blessings corne 
according to your harmonious atti- 
tude which you take towards the 
Blesser. (Applause.) Oh, it is in- 
deed Wonderful! 

Just ttank of it, here after 10 
o'clock, I was at MY Banquet 
Table, and I did not finish eating. 
I bad made no announcements of 
MY Being here tonight until after 
10 o'clock, just before I got MY 
Car and atorted out. Now you can 
see the masses gathered. Accord- 
ing to one of MY Original Compo- 
sitions, a Motto for consideration, 
I said, "I will PREACH CHRIST 
in Wordfc but more so in Deeds 
and in Actions, and I will put MY 
Spirit in them, and cause them to 
walk in MY Statutes." I AM not 
telling them to follow ME, and. I 
did not tell them to come out here 
tonight ,but I did make the An- 
nouncement just less than five min- 
utes before I left the KINGDOM, 
but as I have long since said, "it 
takes a Magnet to draw steel." 

If you' are magnetic, the magnef- 
iceness of that Magnet can attract 
you and draw you to it. Now th'S 
is not confined nor bound to ME 
a« a Person, from a Religious point 
of view only, but remember, I AM 
stressing our daily Actions and 
your personal appearances as an 
outward expression, in the Parable 
concerning our Political Parties. I 
want the honored Candidate _ for 
this District, to realize if he is in 
perfect harmony with GOD, and 
will live thus accordingly, as I AM 
so can all be, hence, he will have 
the VICTORY and he will not 
have an occasion to beseech nor 
beg nor solicit others to help him. 
This is the great significance of the 

The Declaration of Indepen- 
dence, the identical Declaration 
that this Country made, was a par- 
able parably speaking, for each and 
every individual, that he and she 
should declare their declaration, 
their independence, even as the 
Country itself in which we are liv- 
Organizations, of Denomination. 
Partisan parties or any other ex- 
pres, but I can and will participate 
with them, if I feel that I can really 
help them, for this cause, I AM 
here this Evening. I hope yon 
will not allow MY Words to bore 
you, but if vou will only bear with 
ME for a little season, in MY Fol- 
ly and in MY Fanatical Phrase, 
you will find that I will be helpf'il 
to you, as well as I AM helpful to 

Take these thoughts to consider- 
ation. I have sponsored this 
PEACE MISSION, and have ush- 
ered it into all of the affiliation «f 
the different Organization.e. for the 
purpose of getting at the corrup- 
tion, for all of the Organizations 
are corrupt. The Clensing Power 
of lESUS. the CHRIST, as trans- 
mitted will CLEANSE all of our 
different Organizations of the cor- 
ruption, if they will allow it to dp 

When it shall have CLEANSED 
Politics completely, from all of its 
unrighteousfiess, debait'chery anfl 
rorruptibleness. the very Spirit of 
CHRIST will RULE on the 
THRONE of the mind of men, and 
CHRIST will be on the THRONE 
of the mind of men as LORD of 
Lords and as KING of Kings. ' 

Now this is the way the CHRIST 
was to come, not in a Mystical and 
an imaginary way, but your hon- 
ored Candidate, must be RIGH- 
TEOUS, JUST and TRUE, and if 
he does continue to be, then and 
there CHRIST will RULE on the 
Throne of his mind, and on the 
"throne, of the minds of all Righ- 
teous men, who are placed in Of- 
fice, and this World will become to 
be the KINGDOM of our GOD 
and Has CHRIST. 

We shall have a RIGHTEOUS

for you, that yon might be no long- 
er merely something mystical and 
imi)ginary, but that these Qualities 
that I have called for, m^y become 
to be reincarnated in theliearts and 
lives of men, and being reincarnated 
therein, lived according to same, 
they will eventually become to be 
the Personifiers of these Identical 
PERFECT Qualities, and we will 
ME.NT in and under which to live. 
Now aren't yon glad? ("Truly

It is a pleasure to present to the 
Political Party, this Evening, as a 
mere slight sketch and a reflection 
of a percent of a percent, of a per- 
cent of a percent of a fraction of 
a grain of what I AM actually do- 
ing, and what I .will do for the 
children of . this people. I have 
gathered the masses together, and I 
have taught you in the way of 
WISDOM. I hive requested you 
to seek Education, and to learn the 
method of registering and \'oting 
that you may not only be I^w- 
abiding Citizens, as you have been 
since you have been converted into' 
this Recognition, but that you may 
also be Law-abiding Citizens, there- 
fore, we will put the men i;i Office 
who are qualified, those who are 
not qualified, unjust, and untrue, 
we will take them out of Office. 

Now there has been a question 
in reference to MY Followers vot- 
ing, because of their names. It is 
true,' there are many of them who 
have names that sound as if though 
they are Religious, or Kingdom, 
or a Spiritual name. If the Door 
of the Political World be closed to 
them, it will not hinder ME. (Ap- 
plause.) If the Politicians choose 
to open the Door for us, we will 
come in, and we will be of service 
to those who arc RIGHTEOUS 
and JUSTICE, those who are 
RIGHTEOUS and JUST which- 
ever, we will come in and help 
them, but everyone who is closed 
out of Politics, because of His 
RIGHTEOUSNESS, it will lessen 
that individual's access in this 
GRACE, nevertheless, we will put 
our Issue through, with or without 
the Political Door being opened. 
Remember, all of MY Followers 
are not those who have names that 
cannot be recognized. There may 
be about five percent of them in 
the City, here, who have names 
that would not ordinarily be recog- 
nized by the Board of Election, not 
just at this particular time, never- 
have not voted who have names, 
theless, we have plenty of Follow- 
ers, Co-workers and-<friends that 
are present voters and others who 
changed; the names are mortal hu- 
man names, and which could legal- 
ly go through, and will go through, 
the names that have not been 
and we will accomplish that for 
which we came to do. 

Oh! it is such a privilege to he 
living in the Land where the very 
Spirit of GOD condescendingly 
came to the Earth Plane, to help 
TICE and TRUTH, in all fields of 
Life. If they will cooperate with 
ME. I will cooperate with them. 
If they are in harmonv with ME, 
I will as far as RIGHTEOUS- 
NESS is concerned, be in perfect 
harmony with them. I will see 
that whatsoever they endeavor, thev 
will be able to accomplish, for this 
is an outward expression of our 
feeling, and of what we can en- 
dorse you in . . . We can endorse 
jrou by the Ballot. 

Take these thoughts to consid- 
eration. I believe the majority of 
those of you, MY Followers here 
tonight, will do anything I say. 
(A great multitude of hands went 
up. together with the shout of the 
great throng, saying: ."Yes Father 
Dear.") Don't say it unless you 
mean it. (Applause.') 

("Peace "FATHER." again ech- 
oed back.) Because of such a Uni- 
versal Expression, and a daily as- 
sertion and daily assertions made 
the same, not only in this small 
Auditorium of a few thousand, but 
the Universe over, you can say, 


"Therefore, dearly Beloved, let ns 
luii with patience, the race that is 
set before irs." 

Bert Ambrose Gives 
Ace Performance 
Covent Garden 


LONDON, Kngland, July 19 
fANP)— In this epoch where the 
ex'positlon of modem dance music 
is characterized as a distinctive 
development of art form, words 
nearly always fail to portray a 
panegyric of a supreme perfor- 
mance like that oC Ambrose's 
Covent Garden Concert last Sun- 
day afternoon. 

Bert Ambrose's sophisticated 
dance music is the quintessense 
of. artistic elegance which for 
over a decade he has been contri. 
buting^ to the intelligence of Eng- 
lish Society. He is now acclaimed 
lis the maestro without parallel 
la the history of British dance 

The orchestra, which consisted 
of twenty men, was different 
from his usual broadcasting unit, 
being augmented for this oc- 

Party .Demands to be 
Made by Jerseyites 

TRINTON, N, J., July 19 (AN 
i P) — Prominent colored Republi- 
cans frtmi al sections of the state 
met last Friday at 31* Montgom- 
ery street and adopted a con- 
structive program to secure re- 
cognition from the Republican 
party of New Jersey. 

County executive meml>er8 of 
the New Jersey Conference of 
Colored Republicans with a de- 
legation of young Republicans 
were entertained at a dinner by 
Assemblyman J. Mercer Burrell, 
President of the Conference. Dele- 
gates included many persons 
prominent in civic and social ser- 
vice activities who had not pre- 
viously ben active in party affairs. 

T would say to the Candidate, 
may he think and say the same; 

"Let us consider you, and all other* 
are compassed about with so great 
a cloud of witnesses." 

If you are witnesses for ME, let 
it be known by the raising of your 
hands. (And in response to same, 
a rustle of hands of that great 
mighty throng was heafd.) Then 
I say, "You are compassed about 
with so graat a cloud of witnesses; 
then let ns la yaside every idea, 
every opinion, every mortal, seHish 
version, that would and actually 
does be«et you. Let us run with 
patience, the Race that is set be- 
fore us." _ _ 

If yo uare running in the Race, 
if your hat is in the Ring, then I 
say, "Let us run with patience the 
Race." but remember, you are com- 
passed about with such a great 
cloud of witnesses, it is essential 
that vou lay aside every weight and 
the sinjhat so easily beset you, be- 
fore yo ubegin to run, Beloved 
On*. •;. A* I say • . . 

^y*-. L"-:,, - — ■ ■ . 

"Here j-o uare. and there I AM. 
There I sit and here yo ustand " 

There are not enough Politicians 
in the World to buy ME with 
money. (Loud Applause.) They 
ran onlv purchase MY Support 
with HONESTY' instead of money. 
It is indeed Wonderful! 

Take these thoughts to consid- 
eration. I, as being . termed. 
"Your Humble Servant," cannot 
and will not and shall not be pur- 
chased with monev. but I shall be 
bribed bv HO.NESTY and COM- 
PETENCE and TRUTH. I heard 
you and your ancestors say through 

"It li LOVE . that moved the AL- 
It is LOVE that brought HIM 
It is LOVE that brought your 
SAVIOR down. 
It is LOVE that will keep HIM 

Then I sav, "vou can bribe ME 
with LOVE. You can bribe ME 
with HONESTY. You can bribe 
ME with COMPETENCE, but 
not with money, "for the love of 
money is the root of all evil, there- 
fore I will not allow the love of 
money to cause you to lead ME to 
do or say something selfishly, for 
the sake of the greedv gains of fil- 
thv lucre. We shall have a RIGH- 
will prove to the AVorld conclusive- 
ly, all who live a^rcording to MY 
Teaching, they will be so abun- 
dantly Blessed, thev will not have 
an occasion necessarily, to resort to 
dishonesty, for their sustenance, for 
GOD will abundantly bless them. 

Because I refuse to be bribed, 
because I refuse to be drifted about 
or influenced bv monev. I have a 
FULL and a PLENTY of it. so 
it will be with your Co-v.crkers. S'l 
will it be with your Candidate, ii 
he will cooperate, and live thus ac- 
cordinglv, "the ABUNDANCE of 
the FULLNESS of all good 
thin,'S," according to MY Origi- 
nal Composition, the Song sung, 
will be wheresoever, you are, even 
fs it is wheresoever I AM. 

Now I do not wish to bore voit 
longer, however, even though MV 
broken remarks may not be so ap- 
pealing and so pleasing to the 
masses, nevertheless, I have drawn 
them (the people) together: I will 
get out of the way anj allow you 
to talk to them. 

I thank you. Peace Everyone: 
I further wish to say, we are an- 
ticipating participating with the In- 
ternational Labor Defense in their 
demonstration on August 3rd here 
in New York. _And on Aug. 4th, 
we are having a public demonstra- 
tion in Bridgeport, in the way of a 
Street Parade, the same as we 
usually have in New York City and 
elsewhere. The International La- 
bor Defense will cooperate with us. 
We will have a public meeting rn 
and around the Bridgeport Exten- 
sion from 10 a. m. to 10 p. ro., but 
the Parade will begin at 1 p. m,, 
sUrting point at the Bridgeport 
Extension in the 400 block. We 
will have Divine Specials on the 
N. Y. N. H. & H. RR.. 'caving 
the Harlem River Station at 8 a. 
m.. returning 10:30 p, m. each

trip only $1.00. All people are 

With a few remarks from Mr. 
Kay. Candidate i for the 19th .As- 
sembly District, and with a Song 
from Miss Priscilla Paul, and with 
the Righteous Government Song, 
the Meeting concluded. The great 
crowd, or the great cloud of wit- 
nesses surrounded F.ATHER, until 
Hh. Car was out of sight. The 
Clandidate, Mr. Ray, and the Com- 
mittee were extremely grateful to 
FATHER; for making the occasion 
s success. 


"Isn't it Wonderful?" Isn't it 
Wonderful? "The LORD is My 
Shepherd. I shall not want." GOD 
shall RULE upon the Throne of 
HIS MIND, GOD shall rule upon 
the Throne of my mind. 
FATHER DIVINE always wants 
Isn't it Wonderful?"

to Bangor, Me., and "show him the 
best car he ever built." She hopes 
that he will visit the, Ford Exposi- 
tion at the California Pacific In- 
:ernational Exposition in San Diego. 
Mrs. Braham thinks so well of her 
1917 Model T that "no amount of 
money could buy it." 

"When I die I 'intend to have it 
cremated so that 1 can be sure that 
it will not be abused after I am 
gone," fhe- says. 

Mrs. Braham has driven her Model 
T 128,000 miles in the 18 years she 
has owned it. This includes four 
round trips from Sebastopol to Ban-

Pico and Palema Streets 
Rev. J. B. Holmes, pastor 

A program of huge proportioos 
and excellent throughout char- 
acterized Men's day at this 
church, last Sundayl. With Pro- 
fessor J. C. Banks as master of 
ceremonies, and R. N. Sanford, 
chorus director,' the morning pro- 
gram included numbers from Karl 
Carey, saxo.ihonist, Messrs. Geo. 
Hollins. Philip Waites and Septi- 
mas Silas, vocalists, and >ma W. 
Bontemps, speaker. The splendid 
audience, highly pleased with the 
pntlre program, were es.'jeclally 
inspired by the fine expressions 
that fell from the lip"! of Mr. 
Bontemps, whose experience as 
writer and critic naturally make 
him an authority on many mat- 
'ters pertinent to our welfare at 
this time. 

The evening program departed 
.somewhat from the set rule for 
"Men's Day" in that there was a 
bit of feminine participation 
through the contributions from 
the School of Dramatics. in 
charge of Miss Beulah Farmer. 
This school in under the depart- 
mentof Adult Education, over 
which Professor Broadhead pre- 
sides, and the excellent dramatic 
sketches were fcrflowed by a moet 
ennobling address by Professor 
Broadhead. His speech not only 
clearly delineated the meaning of 
education, but stimulated its 
highest motive: "To Serve Oth- 
ers". TTirpughout the day, the 
regular church organist, Mis-x 
Louise Smith, was at her post of 
dutv. and her work was highly 
commended. A special organ 
number was played at the morji- 
ing service by Prof. Wm. Bynum. 

Next^ Sunday, August 4th, our 
full chorus choir will be on the 
scene with appropriate music. The 
pastor will preach and administer 
the holy communion. A cordial 
welcome is extended the public.

IT M Mid that S,aO0 p«rMns were 

laft foodlOM and ahelterlaas 
(••t Tueaday whan the distribut- 
ing office for tb« LACKA waa or- 
dered eloaed by the state. 

I heard a woman say one day 
that she would suffer death from 
itarvatlOD before she would ac- 
cept dole. I thought the state- 
nent rathtr foolish at first, but 
arbOL I p«%aaed her for an expla- 
afae did not hesitate to say 
)wr opinion the matter of 
J" _ individuals to eke out 
mT taiMttance from week to week 
tl^ % small government check 
MMMild not only v -e beggars but 
«ifl» robbers of uie people of th's 
nation of which she did not care 
to b« a part. 

At the time. I said, here is a 
lubject for the psychopathic de- 
partment of the General hospital, 
but I have since concluded that 
the waa a prophet. 

If big business and little busi- 
ness would go ahead steadily, for- 
getting all prejudices, and racial 
m WU, this nation, with its rich, 
fertile lands, coal, gold, silver 
mines and great oil wells would 
produce enough for all, and no 
longer would It be necessary for 
our Tederal government to spend 
its time ordering and regulating 
charity organisations. 

FOLLOWING IS an open letter 
which I received in regard to 
*ne of the outstanding incidents 
tC the week. 

"My dear Mrs. Bass: 

"We must recognize the fact 
that wc are lining In a different 
stream of thought today and 
that at all timet should be cha. 
ritable in our attitude towards 
our forebearert. 

"Last Sunday afternoon when 
Langaten Hughes, international- 
ly feted poet and author, at- 
tempted to address the Civic 
League, an organization com- 
posed of the younger set, at the 
YMCA, he waa barred from 
speaking by tome members of 
the Board of Directors of the 
YMCA who seemed to think 
that because of the young 
mnri's tiiiqictt views h-. was 
Oct of kelter vkith the prrciplc 
of the Y; hence he was denied 
3o cf'S.jrli'f ity to address 'he 
augtist body of civic minded 

"This waa indeed an unfortu- 
nate occurrence and no doubt 
was misunderstood by most of 
the younger people who at this 
time are heaping coals of fire 
upon the heads of members of 
the YMCA Board, who, no 
doubt, like the printer who fol- 
lows hit copy out of the win- 
dow, were striving to obey the 
foundation rules of the organi- 
(Si{|ned> "Miss Madeline Hunt." 

SINCE THE recent staging of 

the colorful Negro pageant. 
"The March of Progress" in which 
a group of young Negro girls 
demonstrated their ingenuity at 
the switchboard, many Inquiries 
have come to me regarding my 
opinion of the ultimate employ- 
ment of our girls in that capaci- 

My only response Is that the 
public is getting impatient. 

It seems that in this present 
fury of attempting to' halt segre- 
gation, another problem has aris- 

An aJl-colored camp, number 
2924 has been set up in Costaic 
Canyon :n Saugua, California. 

According to a letter received 
by ma from Will Rogers jr.. a 
member of this camp, the living 
conditions are very poor and 
"hardly fit for dwelling at pres- 
ent . . . surrounded by rotten 
ceaa pools and tin cans left by 
other groups of workers." 

This deplorable condition is 
further described as being "dis- 
couraging to the modem youth". 

Mr. Rogers also r&'ses the ques- 
tion aa to whether or not the 
white boys were considered bet- 
ter than the coljred boys and 
whether or not the colored boys 
were considered American citl- 

Also, it has been brought to 
bght that there will be a white 
captain, lieutenant and forest su- 
pervisor at thia particular camp. 

This ramp raises the total of 
iuch camps to five. 

And now the quest on which 
riaas In ^y mind is how is it 
tlutt Negroes should be segregat- 
Bd when none of the other hyphe- 
nated Americans are segregated? 

Were it a matter of racial fric- 
tion, I would sanction it immedi- 
ately but unless and until I am 
fubatantially convinced that such 
li the caae I shall continue to fight 
Xbu unbearable segregation. 

ONE OF tlic Joys of the week 
waa a viait to the Ben Bowie 
Poat meeting which I looked in 
on for a few brief minutes last 
Monday evening; Their services 
were very impressive as they 
c«>ened with the bugle call and 
prayer. Every man waa attired 
In uniform and attended to his 
bpainess with solemn faced dig- 
nity. The sight brought back to 
ne memories of the days of the 
World War when thousands of 
lust such Negroes went to war. 
BiDce thia waa my first visit to 
thj Ben Bowie Post meeting the 
•"ignlty and glory with which the 
m sating was carried on surpassed 
By most sanguine expectations.

Material fOr much edtorial comment from the Negro press lies 
in the readiness of certa'n local dailies to play up the infrequent 
cases of attempted attacks by Negro culprits on whites. Incidentally 
when the victim is colored, little mention, tf any, is given. 

The latest instance occurred when on last Monday morning, glar-

ed lynch threats v/ere made when 
Mrs. Lorraine. Parr, of 1456 East

Still more regrrettable is the 
fact that the unproved crime was 
committed just oppos te the 
plant of the CALIFORNIA

week, especially among the young 
woman's associates, has brought 
forth the fact that she is asserted- 
ly a Mexican instead ,of white. 

It was also sa'd that instead of 
a rape attempt the incident de- 
veloped from the suspect visiting 
a house of^easy morals on 103rd 
street. The wome^ is sa'd to have 
invited him there, then picked 
his pocket. She is then said to 
have fled out the back door, but' 
the knife wielder had chased her 
and slashed her ^^en she would 
not stop or return his money. 

According to. the first story, the 
woman waa passing a closed oil

when a man seized her. A mob 
waa said to have followed the big 
squad of officers searching for the 
alleged assailant, and making 
open threats of lynching.

for Negro youths was revealed 
here late last week, when con-

officials of the SERA in an in-

carried the i^iformation. sa d to 
have been "'official", "that c

youths would be establi.shed it 
California shortly if alleged pro- 
posals of State autharitics were 
approved by the Federal Govcti-

would be linMted to camps in three 
counties in CuUifomia — Los An-

"so they coeld be near Central

*n a separate camp." 



TTie following week the Public 
Relations Department of the SF

press that the separate camp 
story was erroneous, and "that no 
statement had been made by an 
authorized official of the LACRA 
that a segregation plan bad been

Mr Dears: 

The Joe Louis victory over 
Leaping Lena'4 pride ind joy Wed. 
night, of course, must lead olT the 
eoiomn. ETpecially since we are 
on the Louis band wagon, and 
have been ever since a night some 
months ago, just before the Brown 
Bomber thrashed one Lee Ramage 
out' at Wrigley Field, when we 
broke bread, as it werep with John 
Roxborough and Julian Black, his 
co-managers, at the Clark Hotel. 

- And now my dear*, to the point. 

You realize that you are now in 
California— known the world over 
idt its •'unu5ual weather". In fact. 
If you are not careful, you are «pt 
to liepeat this phrase quite a few 
times before you leave us. Frin- 
stance, Duke Ellington and band, 
on the last trip to these parts, re- 
pctted the phrase, because it wa« 
raining, when they arrived, on the 
train. Think nothing of that, how- 
ever, because our days are neither 
top warm or too cold, and our 
nights are cool. We know that to 
be in California's favor after being 
in a few eaitern towns and living 
through hot day* and laying down 
(to sleep) and continue to suffer 
from the heat. So much for the 

Oar iceneT7, well now we are 
talkilig abont something. That 
ie something. Either coming, 
atajring. or going, you are apt to 
aee aoch marvels of nature as to 
eauaa you to wonder where you 
have been all of your life. And 
that's not meant to be funny, my 
dears. Some afternoon, when 
jron are motoring here and there, 
aad reach a high level, stop and 
look around you. Moat likely 
yon win tee hazy mow-capped 
noontmins, wide boulevirdi, 
■weeping plains, beautiful home*. 
clean little cities, and if it doesn't 
make you think nature is your 
beat friend then one or the other 
xrf ua is cockoo. 

And then on our coastal routes 
to seaside towns. It's always best 
to have someone driving who i« 
used to ssich scenic beauty ■%o that 
they won't become too enthralled 
and foraat in which direction they 
are traveling. With the Pacific on 
one side and rampant nature on 
the other anyone is subject . to 
lapse into, seeming unconsciousness. 

We get it on good authority, 
that there is a dearth of men 
here. And that's bad. Most of 
the men who are eligible are 
asarried, 'tis aaid. and vice ver-

pull, either one-way or another, to 
get inside studios., but you are apt 
to see quite a few of"^ tiie stellar

night clubs, or just around. If you 
are on your p.'s and q.'s you may

those kind, where you can go in, 
and in a dark and smoke-ladened 
atmosphere dance, and listen to 
some hot singing and tickling of 
the ivories. The theatres are jam-

City Creek, San Benuulino. These 
attea were selected In keeping 
with the program of the War De- 
partment to place them mi the 
same high standard of other 
campa according to information 
received. It also annoimced that 
the campa are to be tmderstood 
aa being "separate" and not 
"segrageated", nor Inferior in any 
way In any way in advantages 
and equipment. 


Most of the personnel of these 
camps will be selected from the 
Negro grroup, Including super- 
visors In each camp, whose salari- 
es will be the same as in other 
eamps; local experienced men, 
who need not be enrollees; cooks, 
atewarda, and the like. 

The interview further brought 
out the fact that the government 
will cooperate in every way to 
make the educational facilities 
offered by the CCC program the 
best possible for these new 
camps. The finest trained mem- 
bers of the race will be sought 
to direct this work. 

It waa also learned that the 
change waa a "War Department 
Order." Similar actions were tak- 
en in the CTlvll, Spanish-Ameri- 
can and World Wars. It waa 
specifically pointed out that the 
separate officers' training camps 
for Negroes turned out men who 
were credit both to the race and 
the government, many of whom 
distingu'shed themselves overseas. 

Unnecessary expense, a growing 
ill-feeling between the races, and 
inside agitation, causing near 
fatal results, were the principal 
reasons g'.ven for the change by 
the Department, it is assert i, 
from the original mixed camps in 

According to Dr. J. A. Somer- 
vlUe Technical Advisor on all Ne- 
gro problems for the SERA, 
who has held a number of confer- 
e :e8 since the issuance of tht 
order with representatives of the 
War Department and State offici- 
als of the SERA, they are trying 
to cooperate In every possible way 
to see that the colored youths re- 
ceive the full benefits and admin- 
istrative advantages provided in 
these camps. 

In addition to those youths al- 
ready in camp, under the new 
regulation the number is expected 
to reach over a thousand, thereby 
causing that many Negro families 
now in urgent need to be d'rectly 
aided. The sum going into these 
homes each month will range 
from »25,000 to »30,000, it was 


The Eagle also carried the in- 
formation in June that of more 
than 60 boys asked by a recruit- 
ing official their opinion of separ- 
ate camps, practically all of them 
agreed that they would prefer 
the change. It is believed that 
separate camps for Mexicans and 
Orientals wrtll also be established 
in keeping with the idea of the 
War Department that the differ- 
ent groups can better receive the 
advantages offered by the CCC 
program in racially concentrated

Mr Le Roy S. Hart 
California Eagle, 
3612 Central avenue, 
Los Angeles, California 

Referring to your request for a 
statement, I wish to state that it 
has been definitely decided by the 
Army authorities to establish 
five (5) separate camps of the 

Citizen's Conservation Corps in 
CalifonUa, to be manned one 
hundred per cent by colored en. 

Recent racial disturbances with, 
in the campa, and outside agita- 
tion brought about this decialon, 
Since this order is final from the 
War Department, we are co. 
operating fully, and have perhaps 
helped to the end that the aelec- 
tion of the administrative and 
supervisory personnel of these 
camps is made from the Negro 
group, and that we have been 
able to help in plarining the edu- 
cational and recreation facilities 
provided for these camps. 

Those in authority in the CCC 
activities have given their full 
cooperation in working out any 
program that is consistent with 
Army regulat'ons in these camps. 


Immediate action against the 
recent order of the War Depart- 
ment to establish separate camps 
for Negro youths in California has 
been begun by the local branch of 
the NAACP, according to the fol 
lowing letter to Walter 
secretary of the Association froi 
Attorney Thomas L. Griffith, Jr.,

My dear Mr. White: 

I am writing to call your atten- 
tion to the fact that it has been 
definitely scheduled to establish 
ive Civilian Conservation Corps 
..■amps in California for Negro en- 
rollees. The creation of these sep-

order of the War Department. 

While it may be assumed that 
we have segregation anr" discrimi- 
nation, it is not under the law; 
California does not condone it nor 
does it lavrfuUy justify a dist'nc- 
tion made by one person against 

We believe that the action of 
the War Department 'n this re- 
gard does not only encourage seg- 
regation and discrimination here, 
but sets an example which ulti- 
mately may legalize the course of 
conduct in other publ'c institutions

Mike Plea for AD Interested h Ethiopia 
. to Attend Gigantic Mass Meeting Sunday 

The treat of Italy's invasion of Ethiopia has aroused and moved 
alt those sincerely interested in the cause of Justice and Peace. 

Proud Ethiopia, last independent Negro country in the world 
is arming to maintain her independence. At the same time she is 
making everv effort to settle the difference peacefully. 

Mu»- ' 

Under the l*n«ierahip of 
lonni Italy is pursoin; a policy of 
tirazen robbery. It baa turned ita 
gree d j i eyes again to the rich de- 
po^ta < raw materials in ETthio- 

With all their efEorta and sacri- 
Bce, the E^thlopian people are not 
bt a position to defend themselves 
adequately froc Uiis rob'^er at- 

MiniOBS of people throughout 
the world outraged by this bru- 
tal disregard of justice are rally- 
ing to the defense of Ethiopia. In 
our country there are people l>aad- 
ng themselves together to make 
3ur government exert -diplomatic 
sressure upon Italy. In many 
ways they are making knawm to 
MussoUni s representatives i am- 
bassadors consuls etc.>. that the 
American people will not toler- 
ate this invasion of the only in- 
lependent nation left in Africa. 

The Friends of Ethiopia will 
rally a gigantic mass meeting on 
Siaidav August 11th at 3:30 P. 
M. at Mt Herman Baptist church. 
lOth and Hooper. 

Speakers will give you true 
facts concerning the Italian-Ethi- 
opian conflict. MX p-rsons Inter- 
ested In Ethiopia and hey stand 
•for indq>endence. agair-3t Italy's 
invasion, should come out and give 
their moral support to the oldest 
Christian nation on earth. 

Please do not contribute any 
funds to any person or comm-.ttees 
until the friends of Ethiopia re- 
ceve an official answer from the 
Ethiopian Government, giving our 
organization permission to collet 
funds for its aid.

Drugged AD RiRfat, But 

"Scientifically l>y the 

Brown Bomber" 

P) — Primo Camera, who caused 
laughs on numerous occasions in 
the prize fight ring served as an- 
other potent laugh-producer last 
week when news dispatches reach- 
ed here telling how he had told 
the folks at home in Naples, that 
he was drugged on the night he 
fought Joe Louis at Yankee 

■I never felt better" said Car- 
nera, as he talked in his own 
tongue to his group of friends at 
home, than the moment I stepp d 
into the ring against Louis. I was 
sure of victory, especially after 
the first round when Louis' blows 
failed to hurt me. However, in the 
second round I suddenly became 
il! and my legs trembled and the 
ring whirled around me It was im- 
possibl'? for me to keep my arms 
m a position to ward off the Ne- 
gro's blows. Even a baby could 
have defeated me. I do not know 
what it was but I was certainly 
afTected by Some foreign sub- 
stance which placed me at the 
mercy <rf the Negro." 

Those around the huge former 
champion xust have received 
some consolation from this state- 
ment and >»rhap3 envisioned Jack 
Blackburn. the dark-skinned 
trainer of the ■Brown Bomber" 
stealthily working '•black magic'' 
from afar, thus rendering their 
hero helpless. This mght be true 
but the "conjurtr.g" was done up 
at Loui5' camp before the fight 
when Blackburn got him in tip- 
top shape to administer that 
"foreign substance'' to which 
Camera alluded and to which he 
succumbed, namely, a devastating 
and methodical attack, which has 
not only drugged Camera but 
practically everj- other foe of 
Louis in the ring. 

Oh. yes. Camera was drugged, 
but as BUI Brown of the New 
York Boxing Commission, put it: 
■"Scientifically drugged by Joe 
Louis', adding 'Primo's charge is 
the silliest thing I have ever heard 
of." But, Mr. Brown, Italy's hero

Real Estate 

optimistic PcopiMcj Made By 

Southern California is on the 
verge of one of the greatest home- 
boilding programs the world has 
ever seen, "The law of supply and 
demand which so many of ns for- 
got about in 1929 and stilt functions 
a.< the lots are taken off the hands 
of speculators of the last previous 
real estate movement; the supply 
naturally becomes smaller because 
those lots are gone forever, a« 
houses already built are taken off 
the market and become homes.That 
source also is diminished. Times 
are better and those who have 
douled up in houses are making 
homes o ftheir own. The new and 
liberal financing of homes by many 
affenctes and the still very reason- 
able cost of building have given 
impetus to the market. The unhap- 
t)y events in other parts of the U. 
?. have caused people living there 
to put their desires into action and 
move to Southern California. The 
great Pacific development is actu- 
al'v under way. 

The ' foreign markets of this 
nation have shifted to the Pacific. 
but if we are to hold them we must 
shift our factories west to aid in

Los Angeles is fast regaining a 
normal apparance after several 
wMks ot fraternal activities. Sel- 
dom in modern times has its clti- 
aanry been host to such a gala 
collection of fraternal sUrs. Ev- 
eryone seems to have had a won- 
derful time, and while the fratern- 
al lights have been extinguished, 
our city Is still infested with a 
number of re^presentative citizens 
from New Orleans, New York, 
Chicago and elsewhere.

And now let m^ take a peep

Ethiopia is doing. Looks like Italy 
Is determine to gain a territoral 
foothold in this little republic. 
To brand Italy a cur and a coward 
is mild to say the least. And for 
the rest of the world to 'ook on, 
permit and sanction a war of *K- 
fression upon a defenseless na- 

tion, is causing humanity to lose 
its reapect for law and order. Aft- 
er all, the best protection against 
agg^ression is preparedness.

drink the liquor, Sheriff R. B. 
Lane, of Craven county has issued 
a standing invitation to the public 
to accompany officers when a

"I do not believe. " said the 
sheriff, "that any man or woman 
who ever saw the filth, the vermin 
and whatnot around one of these 
moonshine stills could ever stomach 
the liquor again so I am issuing 
thi.s invitation. We raided a still 
last week and the place was in- 
fested with roaches, rats and 
-snakes presenting one of the most 
terrible and nauseating sights I 
have ever seen."

RALEIGH, N. C.,,Aug. 9 (ANP)-_A revirard of ?400 has been 
offered by Governcr Ehringhaus for the arrest and conviction of par- 
ties responsible for the lynching of Govan 'Ward, who ran amuck at 
Louisburg, N. C, knd klUed a 67-year-<rfd white farmer. In the mean- 
tme the chief exe<juUve of the Strte la trying to ascertain Just why 

the officers of Franklin count} 
were so dilatory in requesting 
l^elp to prevent mob violence and 
why it was impossible to recbg- 
ni2e any of the .members of the 
mob, although they were unmask- 

The governor learned of the 
lynching through Associated -Press 
reports and immediately dispatch- 
ed troops to the scene but they 
arrived too late to deter the 
lynchers. They foimd the body of 
the lynched man suspended frmn 
an oak tree and a crowd of men 
and women milling about the 
body, expressing approval of the 
action of the mob and some cut- 
ting off toes and other parts of 
the body for souvenirs. In the 
crowd were many young v. imen 
who apparently found much pleas- 
ure in viewing the gruesome spec- 
tacle and in praising the "hero- 
ism" of the lynchers. 

When the IjTiching was first re- 
ported it was said that Negroes 
were numbered among the hiob, 
but little credence is being put In 
the story and Negro leaders them- 
selves are looking askance at the 
reports, pointing to the fact that 
Negroes are law-abiding and are 
willing at all times to let the law 
take its course and to the fact 
that It was due to the act of a 
Negro that the man who has 
been declared insane, was placed 
under arrest.

How Many More Will Be 
Lynched This Year. 

Jails in the South art only a! 
convenient place to hold Nefro' 
prisoners till a mob gets togathcr 
to lynch them. Law and order VL 
the Seuth's biggest joke when It 
cen>es to the black man. The 
most puzzling thing about all of 
this is the apparent contentment 
of the Negroes of the South to 
remain in a country where there 
lives are never safe and their 
home never secure when they can 
live in other places where they 
will at least have a fighting 
chance for their lives. If you were 
to move to a cabin in the woods 
and found the orounds all around 
it infested with deadly 
lurking on every hand for a 
chance to sink their deadiv fangs 
in your body, it wouldn't take 
long for you to make UD your 
minds to leave regardless of what 
you had at stake or hew much 
riches you would leave behind. 
You would do one of two things- 
either kill the snakes or get out 
before they killed you, and since I 
hardly ever read of an Incident in 
the south where a Negro kills a 
few of these snakes who are so 
quick to hang and bum them 
when ever a white woman even 
hints of an insult, I sm wonder- 
ing whether to pity Or to aOern.

WriUng; tn the SOtTTH CARO- 
LIN\ STATE. Mr. Houaneal. who 
sccordirijt to hra own declaration, 
had been drawn to the services at 
the Negro chijrch by his anxiety 
to hear the man whose wrltlng:s he 
had read when he was editor at a 
wliite Baptist publication, declar- 

"Dr. AVhitc presented three profv 
osifions for the guidance especially 
of his own race to wh<ini his ser- 
mon was aOdreased. He told them 
to adopt the pruRrani which Moses 
had given the children of Israel: 
1. Social security, 2. systematic 
adherence to the law of economics, 
3. adherence to siipreme faith in 
the Christian relig'on It was this 
faith and the adherence to the re- 
ligion, that God srave atiundant 
success and prosperity to people of 
Israel that distingruiahed tJie re'gn 
of David as compared to the relpi 
of Saul in his latter years. 

"The sermon was re.nlete in 
classicid quotations to illustrate 
the theme of the speaker In re- 
ferring to state, national and in- 
ternational crisis of ancient and 
modem times. Selections from po- 
ems of I.onifleltow and lauie« Rn<- 
Kll Lowell were used with accu-

sr"8 reference to the crisis of the 
Allies in Europe when they were 
arrayed against Na.Doleon Bona-

description of that decisive battle

Free From Sm? 


(By liav. Phillip N. Meera) 

Last week I finished my d<s- 
course on women preachers. I 
hope that your humble aervFJit 
d<d not make any enemies by the 
idea preaented. May I say this — 
if God called you to preach, and 
you know He did above all doubts, 
go to it! Keep on keeping on! 

Any man . (meaning man or 
woman) who says they are living 
free from sin are I'ars and the. 
truth is not in them. No one Is 

On one occas'on this phrase was 
uttered: "Good Maater." Jesus 
answered by saying "Why callest 
thou me good? There Is none 
good but the Father who lives In 
heaven." If Jesus was imperfect, 
what about us? The only thing 
that made Jesus perfect waa the 
Father living in Him. 

When the Holy Trinity lives in 
an individual, ^e then ?a free 
from sin. 'When the Holy Spirit 
leaves you, sin possesses the body. 

May I close by saying, when 
the Holy Ghoat lives in you richly 
and you are pei(fect. then God 
transforms you to a higher plane. 
We only live free from sin in 
part. Ail ev*l thoueht Is «"n. 

Next week I will discuss the 
form of baptising: "Should we 
Bapt'ze in the Name of Jesus or 
the Trinity?"

driven an average of 849 gallons 
of water was required. It was 
pointed out that if this amount of 
water were placed in a completed 
tunnel it would more than half 
fill the bora. The water is used fOr 
sanitary and cooking purposes, 
camp cooling system, the mixing 
and curing of concrete and scores 
of other needs. 

Since the CDTorado River 
Aqueduct is being built acroaa the 
vast desert territory which Ilea 
east of Los Angeles, the obtain- 
ing of thla large amount of water 
for construction uses was one of 
the first piroSema which con- 
fronted Metropolitan Water Dla- 
trict engineers.

The Briton further told ot how 
the race problem had become 
more acute during the past ten 
yeara, on acount of the political 
deals made by white and Negro 
political leaders, which gave the 
educated Negro a new idea or 
'sense of his im,r>ortance in the 
community" an importance which 
'ia openly objected to by conser-

Tarnation! Caramba! To illus- 
trate just how far. a little joke 
will go we preaent our own plight, 
in which we have been innocently 
called "Liea Hite, Jr.", because of 
a slight resemblance to the genial 
Cotton Club orchestra maestro. 

When plans for the mammoth 
YMCA Vaudeville show at the 
Lincoln Theatre thia Tuesday 
even'ng were being made, nothing 
would satisfy a few of our fis- 
sure-headed friends unless we 
should impersonate brother Hite. 

The }oke ha;ppena to be that we 
know about aa much concerning 
this particular impersonat'on as 
our friends Dunbar Hunt and J. 
Brewer know of three square 
meals a day! 

Nevertheless, be on hand Tues- 
day evening, and help send a few 
needy fellows to the annual Y 

Although we are at present 
"laylnig our oH" In San Francisco 
and Oakland ^along with our in- 
famous brother, whose gargan. 
tuan bew.legs are proving quite 
a sensation, we tarried long 
enough before our departure to 
"boot out" the following: 

The .town has ben simply filled 
with . . . we managed by hook or 
crook to meet practically all, how- 
ever more fuss was manifested by 
the local elite o'^tr three young 
ladles from Oakland . . . Marie 
and Doris Mitchell and Eleanor 
D« Claybrook were feted most 
royally with social affairs 
numerous to mention here— most 
notable, however, were three ex- 
clusive parties given in their hon- 
or by Elaine Archer, Emily Ma- 
son and Florence Gamier . . 

Other guests include Gwen 
Monroe of Oakland whom we im- 
derstand has Nap Herron doing 
back flips . . .also from the bay 
city came the two Morris broth- 
ers Orville and Thomas, who hap- 
pen to be well-known in the 
field of prep track . . . Thelma 
and Elizabeth Adams of Chicago 
have been hurried to this and that 
social function by Steve and Bud- 
dy Lockett . . San Diego has it's 
rfpreBentat;ves in the persons of 
Bertha Wallace and Florence and 
Klizabeth Chapman . . . then of 
course, Martha Luke returns lor 
the summer from Leiington 
County. Mississippi, where she 
has been the "county school 
'marm'' .... la-st but not least, 
Roland. Albert and Emmett Moss 
of Topeka. Kansas arrived last 
week and plan to take as much of 
the local s'tuation in hand as pos- 
sible ... if we have omitted any- 
one, we shall be most happy to 
acknowledge same. 


Evidently the write-up concern- 
ing Bessie Carothers did mere 
than explain the fact thst the 
young lady received a vacation 
trip ... at any rate Mr. and Mrs. 
Carothers would have us explain 
the fact that they are merely 
everyday people minus any riches 
whatsoever, and that they don't 
"dote" as the paragraph stated . . 

. . .(and did someone apine that 
writing a column ought to be 
^easy?) .... Tha recant wedding 
of one J. Arnold McNeely and 
Margaret Brown was \nitA a 
prttty thing . . . McNeely Is one 
of the batter known artistic, sign 
and pester painters, whit* Miss 
Brown occupies the same posi- 
tion in the widely cluttered field of 
stenography . . . Br-r.r-umph! 

Fruit of the Ernest Shelby- 
Ruby Cunningham un'on is ex- 
pected next month, according to 
Hoyle . . the Spencers, BUI ai;d 
Tallula, are now housekeeping at 
624 E. 24th street . . . Frank La 
Vigne, who haa been married but 
one month is chirping bllaafully, 
and declaring that we should, do 
the same . . . .j^evelatlon of the 
secret marriage' last January of 
AJma Colemaa and jQbony Bow- 
den recently ai>d the cou.ple'8 
subsequent move" to a permanent 
residence in L. X. left us hanging 
far behind . . . Rumor fs preval- 
ent that the future Marie Marvin- 
Eugene Davidson marriage will be

Complete paving of Santa Bar- 
bara avenue and eliminatiuii of the 
raised car tracks was seen ts the 
result of a communication sent bv 
Supervisor Gordon L. McDonougl* 
to Councilman Will H. Kindiji. 
McDonough requested Kindig to 
begin negotiations with the Los 
Angeles railway to acquire right of 
way for the city to land now occu- 
pied by the tracki in the center of 
the street. 

McDonough estimated the cost 
of the excavation, paving, curb and 
tidewallc^, not including the right- 
of-way, at $271,000. Due to the 
magnitude of the project, it would 
be necessary to do the work in sev- 
eral sections, he said. Before work 
can be started on the project, it 
will be necessary for the city to 
acquire right-of-way to the land in 
the center of the street. 

"The present narrow strips of 
paving on Santa Barbara avenue 
constitute a traffic menace in view 
of the traffic to which the street is 
subjected." McDonough said. "The 
second district is now well eijuipped 
with broad arterial highways to 
facilitate the flow of traffic north 
and south. Santa Barbara ha^t 
proven a bottle neck for east and 
west traffic due to its narrow- 
ness. This is especially true when 
the Memorial Coliseum is in use. 
Ktimination of the raised car tracks 
and pavement from curb to curb 
would make an ideal east and west 
arterial highway of this street.''

.\lo\ie empIo\ ment chiselers beware' Studio lot drunkards, be- 
ware' (loat-puliers. beware' — for judgment i< at hand. 

The abo\e crvptic warning blazes forth from the theatrical page 
of the California Eagle this issue, like the handwriting of death 
on the uall at the ancient feast of Belsha/zar. 

A special request from Mr. L«- dar^cers or singers for jobs they 
roy Prinz who staged the famous »ould have gotten anyhow will be 
unsurpassed "Luckv Dav" and re- '^^ dow-n on both by the Motion 
cer.tiv the dsince scenes' in "Big Picture Producers Association and 
Broadcast" came to this office ^*^^ 'a^- Aeain. don t buy any 
last Tuesday that the first warn- njore jobs in the same boat ts the 
Irg be published in the interests 
of colored dancers in whom he 
takes especial interest, and to 
whom he expects to furnish con- 
siderable work in the near future 
at Paramount Stud o. He declares 
that with salaries for dancers none 
too high at the best it is a rank 
iir.oosition for anyone to exact a 
percentage of the money for com- 


TTie second warning comes from 
Mr. McCuUough. fair-minded, cap- 
able new head of Central Casting 
Corporatirwi who within less than 
a year has improved workJlg con- 
ditions for the extras and service 
to the studi"^ over 50 per cent. 
He says anyone found guilty of 
carr>ing liquor or other strong 
drinks into ttie studio wbile at 
work or reporting dnink will be 
pemanently dropped from the roe- 

The third warning comes from 
the theatrical editor followng a 
sum-up and survey of the various 
evils that make things unpleasant 
for the worthy, conscientious mo- 
tion picture extra and endangers 
the future status of all Negroes in 
the films. "Coat Pullers" tn studio 
parlance are knockers in any oth- 
er language: the fellow who in- 
stead of minding his own work and 
bus n ess is alwa>'s discrediting oth- 
er players behind their backs. 

Much work looms for the near 
future with stories including con- 
siderable numbers of Negroes, and 
as usual the human parasites who 
w^ant to make money off someone 
else's work arise like grave-rob- 
bers. Central Casting Bureau sup- 
plies chorus girls and dancers to 
the motion picture companies jtist 
as it does the extras. Mr. Butler. 
casting director of colored talent 
has practically every local dancer 
listed OB his regular revised list. 
When there is work for these they 
will be called by him and not one 
penny taken out for commission. 

Of course. In the case of pro- 
feslonal dance acts such as Broom- 
field and Greeley and others Inter- 
v.ewed by Mr. Prinx ias* Saturday 
it is the'r privilege if they wish 
to have a regular licensed agenL 
But the gang who operating imder 
false pretense takes money from 

be put in the same boat as the 
chiseler and— SL^NK' 

It was reported to Central Cast- 
ing Bureau that a veteran extra 
named Fraxer. had been drink*ng 
and showing its effects during the 
filming of King Vidor's "So Red 
the Rose." The man in question 
is well along in years with his 
abilities in the strenuous picture 
greatly lessened to what they were 
dur'ng h'.s young days in the si- 
lents years ago. If this Is true 
he should know better and should 
set an example to much young- 
er players. Drunkards will not 
be tolerated so those who must 
drink at work will get plenty of 
time at home. 

To the coat-ptillers it will do 
you no good to run to Mr. But. ; 
ler about your fellow player. He ' 
has learned to class coat-pullers j 
with rats and other vermin and ! 
can learn all he wants to -know 
about his players from personal 

It will also do no good to knock 
him as Central has found that he 
has been giving a high class of 
efficiency for the nine years he has 
held the office Last week a wo- 
man whooe friends touted her to 
apply was found unsuitable and 
refused. She wrot a very den^a- i 
torj- letter to Mr. McCuUough j 
about Butler a man of her owti 
race but she did herself and all 
her kind more harm than gtwd.— 
So. mind your business. EK3NT

Tn viting a famous motion pic- 
ture star to a public paid 'iTtiitt 
ion affair Is one thing, but getting 
them to oome la quite another. 
This has been found out by many 
promoters to their sorrow when 
the honor guest or guests failed to 
appear for the gap'ng crowds to 
feast their eyes on them, thua 
balking at the turnstile or demand 
return of the gelt paid for admiaa- 

But Oscar Smith's secoiid annual 
Motion Picture Ball staged on 
Thursday night of last week was ' 
a bigger success and was graced i 
by more big-time celebrties than ] 
most smilar affairs given br \ 



Smith, known to everyone in 
Hollywood as "Cute Kid." "Smllm" 
Osrar." or "Stutferin' Osi-ar", ha» 
been a concessionnaire at Para- 
mount studio for more than eigh- 
teen years besides bits and 
parts In many pictures. ' So. be- 
cause of ^i«t wide p<r«nnai acfuain- 
tance. he decided last year to 
bring the famed stars to Central 
avenue, which he did with great 
success at Elk's Auditorium. 

This year he collaborated with

packed every ava-'lable space. Mae

who has not yet visited an East- 
side nite club, promised faithfully 
to be present and bought ten tick- 
ets for her party. But at the last 
moment, she wraa unable tc attend. 
so sent a w're instead. This was 
read publicly. 

In hi? irriiritahl^ msn-ier that 
was in reality responsible for the 
success and smooth operation of 
the program. Oarence Muse acted 
as master of ceremonies. His fa- 
miliarity with all the honor guests 
and his interspersion of catchy 
co m ment and jokes made h s offi- 
ciating a rare treat. 

Supporting lum, . IXike York 
served as relief, or assistant to 
the "l^ng of the sepia film col- 
ony." Among the colored cel'bri. 
ties who shared honors and ap- 
plause with the whites were Lou- 
Ise Beavers. Jeni Le Gon. Earl 
Dancer. Gus Rob nson and others. 

Responding either by a neat 
speech or by entertaining with a

"But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them th at curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you." 



Rhode Island repudiated the New Deal this week when 
Ojarles F. Risk, Republican, won the Congressional elec- 
tion hi the First District over his Democratic opponent 
Aitonio Prince. It looks like the pendulum is swinging 
in the Republican direction.

It is of regrettable fact that there are some dailies — 
Ijoth morning and evening — in our city which seem to 
make eery possible effort, on the least excuse, to pub- 
lish highly colorful stories, along with glaring, riotous-, 
mob-bating headlines of "inddenU" which commonly 
come to any community, yet when "crime'* is committed, 
from which could be produced highly colorful stories, the 
same is left unsaid, or given a two or three-line mention 
in some inconspicious place with the paper. 

On Monday morning of this week, it was reported 
that a very gentle character (white) of the city of Watts 
had been successful in warding off an attempted attack 
by a Negro, through the timely arrival of a night watch- 
man in the vicinity of the supposed misdeed. By night, 
enough agitation by these "red" dailies to permit scare-

borhood, against the MOB-BAITING, RIOT-SUGGEST-

(In regard to Federal Government Interferring with Individual Liberties) 


" 'Only certain well defined powers have been granted 
by the sovereign people to the Fedral Government. Ev- 
erything not thus expressly granted has been reserved by 

. the people of the sovereign states. ^ We should always 
bear this in mind and give the Federal Government only

be given power to run your life and mine' — Gov. Roose- 

^vdt, March 8, 193 1, in an address at Broadway Temple, 
New York Gty. 


■ "A forceful summing up of the encroachment by the 
New Deal policies upon individual rights and liberties is 
•written by Lewis W. Douglas, Democrat, former Con- 
gressman from .Arizona, and until September, last year, 
; Director of the Federal Budget by appointment of Presi- 
dent Roosevelt. At that time he was forced to resign be- 
". cause of Roosevelt's complete repudiation of the Demo- 
cratic national platform and his own pledges regarding 
. public economy and orderly budgeting of Federal fi- 
' nances. 

"Mr. Douglas has just published a compact volume up- 
on this subject. In his preface he enumerates the various 
; policies translated into legislation which the Roosevelt 
'^ Administration is forcing upon the country at the expense 
of the rights and liberties of the people. Following is his

' an Industry and commerce. 

" 'The securities act tends to make of the Federal 
Government the exclusive capitalist. 

" The Wagner labor bill vests in the Federal govern- 
ment the power to regulate all employer-employe rela- 
tions, and even to dictate the terms of settlements. 

•• The Guffey coal bill vests in the Federal Govern-

mix-up occurred— really a fight— and that the young 
lady ran from a rear door into the alley, followed by one 
who is said to have had just grievance, where the two 
proceeded to settle their difference. After screaming 
and being "rsecued," then followed the inflaming stories 
in our dailies. It is reported further that the young wo- 
man is of Mexican extraction, a frequenter of places of 
night life and naturally would be in brawls at times. 

Little, if anythin,?;, was done about i^ie INHUMAN 
KIDNAPPING AND MURDER of a helpless little five- 
year-old girl in this same section by these same dailies, 
not even a picture of the little thing, that same casual 
reader might recognize her and furnish a clue— WHVr 
Because the poor, little, lifeless, strangled form, found 
under some nearby box cars was enclosed in tan-colored 
skin. Nothing was said by these same dailies when, in 
this same vicinity, and not so long ago, a girl was way- 
laid and attacked by a WHITE MORON, later proven a 
pervert, who was caught, by the police, in the very act 
in question happened to be of shady hue. We Jon't 
mention these cases to create jll-will, but to prove that 
crime knows no color — and intelligent dailies shuuld 
recognize it as such and cease endeavoring to create ra- 
cial animosities. 

We should think that after so many concerted efforts 
on the part of these agitating dailies to create racial an- 
tipathy in our fair and peaceful City, County and State, 
that our City Attorney, District Attorney and Legislators 
should look diligently into the matter with the avowed 
Purpose of creating some ordinance or statue whereby 
'he efforts at such racial placed under 
heavy punishment — for after all, whep such occurs, it is 
not these COLOR-PHOBIA journals that will have to 
combat the result but the POLICE, the SHERIFF, and 
probably the STATE MALITIA.— So therefore, we say, 
it should be squarely up to these law and order dlvsions- 
of our State Government to make an effort to keep 
trouble from their doors. This should gain as much con- 
sideration and militant agitation as our recently passed 

Until this is accomplished, the constantly derided peo- 
ple- THE BLACK MAN— should consistantly and con- 
certedly BOYCOTT such dailies, and although the with- 
drawn support may be negligable as far as the financial 
returns to these newspapers are concerned, yet it will 
voice your protest and stamp you as a MAN and not a 
DOG, which constantly licks the boot which sears his 
hide. Let the newsboys, in our largely settled districts 
deliver the information to the delivery trucks of these 
dailies that they can't use it because they have no sales for 
them. There are lots of dailies in our city which carry 
all the news that these "red journals" do-so we don't 
have to be "cutting off our nose to spite our face" as far 
as news is concen>ed. Not alone this, but many of these 
other dailies are manned by characters who stand out as 
for ALL PEOPLES ALIKE to the end that BROTHER:

malna as a 'estering: sore in the 
LaUn arm. When the "weather 
permits," to quote Italian Mili- 
tary circles, the Fascist troops 
will start their optimistic march 
on Abyssinia's captal, Addla- 

The ancient empire, last vestige 
of Negfro domination and indepen- 
dence, is. determined that its 
freedom and 6000 year heritage 
shall not be subdued nor Italiani- 
zed. Formidable aids unmasked 
will defend Abyssin'a's borders: 
fever infected swamps, poisonous 
insects, and impregnable moun- 
tains; these natural forces will 
act as all.'es for the King of 
Kings. Young. mis-Informed Itali- 
ans are leavine thetr temperate 
climate for the African service; 
theirs will be a bitter awakening. 
In addlUon to the fearless and 
well-drilled regulars of i^elassie I, 
they will have to fight the ferce 
warriors of the Abyssinian moun- 
tains, men who are nurtured on 
wars extending over a period of 
6000 years, and have reraa ned 
unconquered. The Black Shlrted 
Legions of the modern Caesar will 
find their t^k of zo quest an 
arduous one. 

When the campaign once starts. 
Italy will find it necessary to 
send more men to Africa than the 
leaders contemplate. Her home 
strength will be weakened— so 
weakened that Germany's aims on 
Austr'a can be realized without 
fear of Italian interference. Erg- 
land and France call Mussolini's 
Abyssinan dream "II Duce's Fol- 
ly." So It will n-ove to be from 
every stand point! 

In Euraoe a country in arms 
may have in active service at 
most an average of 8 pe»- cent of 
the male population: In Abys- 
scinia this average may rise to 
40 per cent, there beng no maxi- 
mum or minimum age limt. This 
creates a numeric disproportion in 
favor of -'.byss'nia with its popu-

During a military march of the 
irregular troops almost every 
soldier has his own lltOe donkey 
whch is driven and cared for by 
p. boy or girl servant or at times 
by his father young brother, or 
even his wfe. The donkey carries 
skin bags with food (oats and 
wheat) and a small white cotton 
tent which is pitched at every 
stop along the route. W en a

The war drums the

where all the volunteers have 
gathered, groups of horsemen 
decked In their war costumes 
and tht Ras himself, go scurrying 
around to those villages where the 
men have not yet heard the sum- 
mons, and Inciting others who 
have not finished their prepara-

When all the stragglers are as- 
sembled, tne march to war be- 
gin! in earnest. The tents are usu- 
ally struck before dawn. The 
aspect of the camp m the indis- 
tinct light is indescribably fan- 
tastlc. Men, women, children, and 
.quadrupeds move in all dlrec- 
•tions amid smokey Area In the 
early light pf the desert dawn 
this seething mass of humanity, 
calling and talking confusedly, be- 
gna ita disorderly but steady on- 
war march. The women, servants 
Or wives of the soldiers, bear on 
their heads and shoulders sacks 
of food, goatskin bags of water, 
earthenware Jugs of beer wh ch 
ferments while they walk in the 
sun, and the belongings of the 
chiefs and minor dignitaries. '- 
They carry innumerable odds and 
ends under their arms and in their 
bands: pans and boxes of all 
forms and dimensions containing 
oil. ealt, pepper, butter. Some of 
the women bear their young ones 
tied to their backs while others 
carry - their husband's or master's 
rifle. In camp they collect lire 
wqod, cook, and re.T)air wearing 
apparel; they are the indespen- 
•abU aid of aa AbyssinUn soldier. 
Women, children, tili men and 
young, horses, donkesra and 

mingled in picturesque confusion. 
They advance toward the enemy 
babbling, shouting. Joking, step- 
ping on each other's toes, singing, 
chanting war songs or shrUlj 
gypsy-like melodies. They form 
a shapeless moving mass which, 
according to the ondition of th« 
ground, elongates mto a tortuous 
column, a wide -fronted array, a 
th'n Indian file, breaks into 
separate g^rotips and amal- 
gamates again. It seems a bibli- 
cal emgrat'on of an ent're people. 
General Balbos aviation and 
General Graziani's armored cars 
are believed by Italians to be 
Abyssinia's Nemesis, but two 
himdre^; and fifty miles of terri- 
tory patched w'th impenetrable 
jungles and vast stretches of arid 
lands will not permit Mussolini's 
soldiers an easy or rapid advance. 
Furthermore one must not be led 
to believe by the foregoing de- 
scription of the Abyssinian irregu- 
lars that the entire fighting 
forces of the nation are merely 
armed . _nds of guer'lla warriors. 
The regular troops are suppl.ed 
with up-to-date arms, a fair Icnow- 
ledge of modem warfare, and the 
use of hand granades, machine 
?uns, gas bombs, and small can- 

The continual hostilities on the 
Italo-Eth(opian border are noth- 
ing but pretexts to encourage an 
issue of a question which has re- 
mained unsolved between Italy 
and Abyssinia. It is clear that H's 
Excellency De Bono, who partici- 
pated in the battle of Adua and 
who was recently sent to East 
Africa as High Commander, will 
attempt to reconquer those dis- 
tricts in Ethiopian territory which 
the Italian troops were forced to 
abandon forty years ago. At that 
time the Ital'an Parliament which 
was under the control of the So- 
cialist Party refused to sanct on 
a continuaUon of hostilities. In- 
stead it allowed that the country 
should remain imder the humiliat- 
Ing impression of defeat. The 
ruling Negro Emperor had a 
clear vis on of the extent of the 
blow he had given the Italian na- 

Many Italian pacifists, refer- 
ring to the present diplomatic 
controversies ;>etween the two 
countries, believe that the King 
of Kings will end by granting 
Italy a right of Protectorate over 
the Emp're, thus putting all 
posibility of w..r. The Protector, 
ate ■ ould not include the zone of 
English influence around Lake 
Tsana. the source of the Blue Nile 
to which the Egyptian Sudan 
owes its fertility. Also other zon , 
along the FrencU Somaliland 
bf ndary woult* be excluded. But 
even if a Protectorat-^ shoul i • 
granted to II Duces governmc t,

m'lltary act'or wouid be inevi-

Health and Progress 



This is a cooUnuaUon from last 
week's arUcle by Eunice Manh, 
on the subject of "Buying Your 
Food." Plan a well-balaac«d, 
nourishing meal with your income. 

About 00 percent of the food 
offered for sale now Is in pack- 
age form. Naturally, this is an 
added expense; but msiny times 
the added cleanliness and - con- 
venience make It worth while. 
Economy here is exercised by 
choosing the size of package that 
best suits your need, and by avoid- 
ing fancy wrappers. Many times 
less widely advert'sed brands may 
be of equal food value, and much 
less in price. Do not be afraid to 
try new brands and make com- 

When comparing prices of dif- 
ferent brands of' canned goods, 
the cost should be on the basis of 
solids alone, and not on solids and 
liquid, since some have a much 
higher liquid content than others. 

Consider the use for which they 
are intended when you buy eggs. 
Unless they are to be soft, cooked 
or poached, they need not be 
strictly fresh. Even storage eggs 
may prove sat'sfactory for most 
purposes if they have been han- 
dled properly before and after 
storage. Much can be told about 
an "igg by lookatg at it Color is 
not an important Item as far as 
food value is concerned for care- 
ful tests have shown the compo- 

sition of the contenU ot 
and white sbeUed eggs to be Iden. 
ticaL But the shell should be 
rood, Bot ablny. The egg should 
not Aakc, though such a eon- 
dition may be due to evaporation 
of Mqu'd rather than to apoUa^. 
Pullet eggs are cheaper but Rnal- 
ler, so there is seldom much 
savod by selecUng them. 

Buy your fresh fruits and vege- 
tables by weight whenever poa- 
sible. It reduces prices. The fol- 
lowing suggeatioaa as to points te 
be observed in selecting fresh 
fruits and vegetables and the 
number of servings per pound 
may' prove helpful: 

It is better to buy green vege- 
tables three tmes a week rather 
than but once unless they are 
carefully handled. Fruits and 
vegetables in season are cheaper 
and are of superior flavor. 

Do not handle fresh fnilts and 
vegetables In selecting them. It 
is not a clean practice, and It In- 
creases spoilage which In turn In. 
creases the price you pay. Indi- 
cate your choice, and then permit 
the salesman to select It for you 
under your direcUon. 

Cabbage should be firm and the 
leaves fresh. The tender portion 
can be used for salad and the 
coarse leaves left attached to the 
stalk until needed for soup or 
stew. An average head of cab- 
bage weighs from two to three 
pounds. It will serve twelve as 
coleslaw, or six cooked.

Community' Prepares For 
Gala Exhibit — 

A few weeks ago, an idea was 
born in the mind of Rev. W. D. 
Carter, pastor of the Friendship 
Baptist church. He mentioned 
his plan to a few friends, stating 
that it would be a good thing if 
the Negroes of Southern Califor- 
nia would stage a fair, and exhibit 
the best talents of skill and in- 
dustry. Like wild-fire the thought 
spread, and now Southern Califor- 
nia is giving a stupendous fa'r 
under the management and di- 
rection of The Lincoln Industrial 
Fair Association of Californ'a. 
Efferversing With Enthusiasm 

If you visit Pasadena these 
days, you will find every man 
and woman to the person prepar- 
ing to do his or her part to make 
the pageant a success. Crafts- 
men of a himdred different lines 
have opened up old tool chests 
that have been closed Since the 
advent of depression, and are pre- 
paring exhibits exemplifying their 
mastery of skill and fine work- 
man ^hip. They arc determined 
to make their trade relieve them 
of SF.R,\ relief. Salesmen and 
d'stributors of many nationally 
kno^'n manufactures have induced 
their drums to join in and help 
make this fair a success, by put- 
ting in exhibits which will prove 
that they appreciate the Negro 
market for their goods, and that 
the Negro market can better be 
served with greater efficiency 
thru the agency of Negroes them- 

Women Well Represented 

The part played by the women, 
displajing their own line, will be 
equal to that of the men. Every 
home ha.i become a handcraft 
shop.op of some description. It is 
amazing to note the many profit- 
able industries which mav be suc- 
cessfully conducted from the home. 
In one home you find a m'lliner, 
in another a dressmaker, and st'll 
another quilt-makers. And as ifor 
.sewing, there is no end of its 
many phases. Catering, home- 
cHTtoine and ^-ift making ia a fas- 
cinating sight. One cannoc be- 
g'n to imagine why or how such 
fine skill and talent has been per- 
mittee to lie dormant just because 
old mva depression said that it

Father Divine 








JULY 26 1935 

TIME— 2 :45 P- M. 

Althouah FATHER has sai<l, 
"We would not have time to think 
■Iter awhilf." a MESSAC/E such a* 
the one givrn in the Afternoon of 
] Ihis Day. will necessarily cause one 
to stop and think, and think deep- 
ly for a season, over that one vital 
ind all important Question: 
■CHOOSE ye this day, whom ye 
. Wilt gerve?" This statement must 
mevifahly some day, somehow and 
' wmewhere confront everv individu- 
. al who breathe.^ the Breath of 
Life, for the very breath that he 
breathes belongs to GOD. He 
!«imt become conscious of this fact, 
hence, he must throogh the recog- 
nition of s»me. choose the MAS- 
TER of his Being, by denyinR his 
lOWTi life and inherit ETERNAL 
LIFE, or deny his Creator 
' tnd forfeit his inheritance. He 
must squarely face this question, 
for it is ai> individual consideration, 
ts well as a Universal one. After 
havinfi made the choice of whom 
ire shall serve, whether it shall be 
GOD or sell, then it is necessary 
lb RELAX the conscioui mentality, 
' Is instructed by F.\ THKR. so that 
the proper and rijthtful process may 
' |o on in our svstems, for without 
;ibe RELAXATION of the con- 
-•cioOT mentality, the CHRIST 
cannot come forth to fruition. The 
'Functioning and the activeness of 
(the human consciousness will spring 
■•p continuallv. in the place and in 
•the way of the CHRIST, even as 
Jdoes the chaff in the growing of 
the wheat, and as the husk in the 
-crowing of the corn. ^_v 
J Prior to this fireat iJniversal 
•MESSAGE which was presented 
•to the children of men, FATHER 
Jbtspired one of the .^ngeIs with the 
Jihonght of TR.Vl^E." and in her 
«|cstiiTiony of praise, she stated that 
•*ne should not think of coming inlcJ 
itot Qf negation, when HE is direct- 
4in« HIS LOVE to all of humanity 
'and pouring out His Spirit upon 
lall flesh, but rather they should be 
•filled *ilh Pxaises. to render unto 
•ihe LORD. This was a very beau- 
ttiW thought, and FATHER veri- 
tfied the same. 

• As F.ATHER arose to speak. 

'■ml after the tremendous applause 

.■1i»<l ceased. FATHER called to 

'yar attention, ane of the Products 

.o< Christendom, the Song entitled 

. *Sweet Hour of Prayer." A most 

'beautiful paraphrase was given ron- 

;,*r»ncerning the Song: "Sweet Hour 

.«•{ Praise." was the revised version 

^Mcnight forth from the DIVINE 

IMIND. F.\THER stated that m- 

.^•trad of beseeching, if we would 

v«ive Praise, we would find our- 

Mlrt* advancing «picil«a*lT, and 

«haa losing contact with »h« earth 

wc would lose contact witH the 

nortat self, and through the t««4e 

M, of Praise, every barred and 

«lMt door would be open tuito us- 

As we build our Temples wt 

take on new characteristics: as a 

rwMlt of same, habit* are formed 

From this beautiful, instructive 

MESSAGE, we can see how im- 

MTtant it is that we fr^rm the habM

GIFTS and with TALENTS, and 
they will be the I'ersonihers of 
ACTERISTICS, and even as GOD 
Himself, is desired, so will the 
Sons and Daughters of GOD, be 
desired by all of the people, 
a A very forceful thought was 
presented by F.\THER. one that 
must not be overlooked. It was 
the thought of DISSOLVING. 
FATHER set forth the fact that 
every true child of GC\). will be- 
swallowed up in the recognition of 
the CHRIST, and his will and de- 
sires, will be submerged in the will 
and Desires of His MAKER, and 
he will say, even as JESUS, the 
First born among many Brethren 
said: "Not my will, but Thy Will 
be done." Then will the KING- 
DOM of GOD have come on the 
Earth, for in the individual's life, 
the Earthly state of const iousne.^s 
shall have vanished and the 
CHRIST state of consciousness 
shall be the .Abiding place for the 
individual. Until every individual 
comes to this place that he is 
pleased with all that GOD does, 
and is willing and ready to do any- 
thing that GOD would wish bin; 
to do, and go anywhere GOD 
would desire him to go, and say 
anything GOD would want him to 
say, he cannot say truthfully, he 
knows GOD neither can he say, 
"CiOD alone is reigning.' for in 
his ways and his actions he is show- 
inK that the mortal self is reigning, 
on the throne of his mind, and not 

This MESS.\GE is a true Guide 
for humanity, therefore, if you 
would know what GOD desires of 
every individual, and what is re- 
quired of every individual, it would 
profit one to read these words of 
the LORD'S and walk in the pre- 
cepts of same, that ve mav enicr 
into the KINGDOM of GOD. to 
eniov and to share the Blessing of 
HE.\VEN. and to obtain the 
LIFE, which is the Promise of 
GOD. unto every true and faithful
