and respect of not only the mem-

, The oth'ir day I had a casual 
meeting with a lady who has had 
occasion to observe the law ma-

tola me that it was her observa-

I 'mention this because these 
young men in the discharge of 
their duty reflect credit upon 
their racial group. 

Too often we dcQlore any act 
or even purported act bopdering 
on indiscretion in office, and are 
ready to cry out. "Crucify him!

turn aside in .the pursuit of our

while Visiting the General 
Conference of the great African 
•Methodist church which met in 
New York; City last month, the 
able barrister, civic, social, and 
religious worker, Willis O. Tyler, 
contributed many articles of in- 
terest to alj the people that were 
published -in this paper. This 
week's letter comes from the na- 
tionally famous Tuskeoee Insti- 
tute. Mr. Tyler's articles are not 
only interesting but informative 
and educational and they point 
out that Black Americans are 
. lackeys instead of promoters in 
jibiisiness in such metropolitan 
I, Tenters as New York City and 
' Chicago. Tliat .gives roe an idea 
which I shall try to pass on. 

'While in :prep)aration for a p>ol- 
itical campaign to decide upon 
;whom we shall elect and wliom 
reject for certain., important ad- 
ministrative posit/ons, we should 
u^efNito-i^^lbai-mtr heiMfe"*fac«!£JM 
gear" before we step on our 
"mouth gas." After all it should 
noit be hcwr much we earn in a 
political cajnpaign, bot how con- 
scientiouslj^ we support men who 
have been and are four .square in 
office and in their dealings with 
the people. 

I feel that one cannot place too 
much emp^iajis on the fact that 
Black Ameiricans become targets 
and scavenjgers in political cam- 
paigns at ijhe behest of political 
slickers, who "cook up slush" but 
pass it on to the Black man to 

TJoo often what one earns In 
a political campaign, especially 
when it takes on tho ■ijurt of a 
battle, takes away aHre Ikan it 
adds to his economic advance- 

■Rie ballot, after all is the main 
highway that leads to the light of 
day for Black Americans eco- 
nomically. If we, as a group, 
will get wise and pull together 
rather than apart, we can defy 
frthose foes of justice who seek to 
keep us apart gy stirring up 
strife in our ranks. 

Get this psychology. They 
should realize that we can 
differ in political opinion and 
even in our choice of candidates 
I without becoming enemies! Black 
Americans, politically speaking, 
represent a separate and dis- 
itinct element in the body politic. 
As such Igt us get together irt 
the main and on all issues that 
affect our interests as a racial

Black Legion, somewhat dubious 
successor to the ill-famed Ku

credit of the Negro race in the 
South, was revealed last week 
when a dissatisfied member of

This letter, among others, will 
be sent to Attorney General 
, Homer S. Cummings in Washing-

ot G-men, in stamping out the 

In enumerating the organiza- 
tion's methods the Texan wrote: 

"When an agent goes into a 
new town to set up a Legion 
cKapter the^ first thing to do is to 
take someorie from another town 
and have him black up like a 
Negro and commit some crime, 
mostly assaults on white women. 
Then you have a big field to 
work in. The ffstipersons to join 
are usually th^ pcJi^. sheriff and 
district judge.. Next the jailer 
and prison guard^ 

"After you ^et ;a man to join 
he gets a pistol an)d a black robe. 
When a real NWgr6 is hunted, the 
first Negro you fijid is arrested, 
carried to jail and kicked until he 
confesses. Then hk signs a con- 

"Every time a Negro confesses, 
you can get from 10 to 30 new 
members. I have been in some 
southern cities where Negroes 
were lynched. The 'general" (pre- 
sumably a Legion official), says 
the Legion took in 300 new metti-

White Woman Goes to 
Russio to be With Husbond 

CHICAGO, June 5.— (ANP)— Tired of America and the white 
press which bad consistently bull-dogged her because she had 
married a Negro communist, Mrs. Jane Emery Newton, daughter 
of a past national commander of the American Legion, has left the 
United States for Ruasia where she will live with her husband, 
Herbert, and their two children.* More than a year ago the mar- 

Mrs. Newton's departure was 
revealed last week by Atty. G. B. 
How the I' Foley of the Illinois Emergency 
Relief commission whose agents 
had sought her with a warrant 
charging the white woman with 
defrauding the lERC after it had 
supported the fcimily more than 
two vears. After tracing the New- 
tons to their last home, friends 
told investigators the husband 
left in February and the wife 
and children followed in mid- 

"Mrs. _ Newton told neighbors 
that she'exf)ected to stay in Rus- 
sia because there"',her narriage 
with a colored man would be 
approvefl," Foley said. "She told 
her radical friends tfae would be 
able to enter into the real com- 
munistic spirit in its cradle and 
with her husband would make 
reports at Moscow on the move- 
ment's activities in the United 
States, especially in Chicago. 
Money for the trip came from 

riage of Herbert Newton, bril- 
liant Red leader... and Jane Em- 
ery, former University of Michi- 
gan co-ed, was revealed in court 
following the husband's arrest for 
party activities. Daily newspa- 
pers made much of the interracial 
aspects of the case, pointing to 
the young wife as a "horrible ex- 
ample" and demanding a sanity 
test. Since then the Newtons 
have been in the news at every 

"The young woman's lather, a 
realtor in Grand Rapids, Mich., 
said he heard uidirectly of his 
daughter's departure but due to 
their estrangement she didn't let 
him know she was going. 

"She was a b.rilliant student at 
Michigan and at a court hearing 
in Chicago was declared sane," 
Colonel Emery said. "However, I 
believe communism and other 
'isms' have unbalanced her mind. 
Perhaps when she lives in the 
Soviet she will finally wake up to 
her delusion."

In-^ber opening address to the 
Council of the Women's Political

of the meeting were: a demon-

has just perfected, and a • brief 
talk by Dr. Temple, newly ap-

vestigate a cutting scrape early 
Monday morning, found Kid Lips 
Hackett, a ihusician near 41st and 
Central avenue, suffering from a 
deep knife inflicted gash along 
the upper right arm. Hackett 
told the officers that an uniden- 
tified man attacked him appar- 
ently without cause as he sat in 
Lear's Cafe nearby. 

While the man was receiving 
treatment from the ambulance 
attendants, a friend of the 
wounded man espied J. Berry

the officers as the assailant. The 
man was nabbed and when

Monday afternoon, Jesse E. 
Smith, 46. and booked him on 
charge of suspicion of drunk

ALTUS, OkU.. June 6.— (ANP) 
— Held by police for shooting S. 
E. Harlan, white, 32-year-old 
WPA truck driver, 19-year-old 
Olivia Gardner last week escaped 
a lynching at the hands of a mob 
led by the slain man's widow as 
officers twice repulsed the 
would-be mob and rushed the 
girl to safety. 

According to the story told by 
Miss Gardner to police, she shot 
Harlan in self-defense after a 
fight. The truck driver, rushed to 
a hospital where he died the fol- 
lowing day, stated he had gone 
down town to ^et >ome medicine 
and was retummg home when he 
heard someone c^ him from the 
railroad station. When he went 
over to see who it was, "she shot 
me," he declared. 

Harlan did not state how It 
was he was shot by a stranger 
without provocation. 

No charges were filed against 
the girl immediately following 
her arrest. 

According to .*.. "iV. Edwards, 
Altus fMDliceman. Mrs. Harlan led 
the mob of 200 and tried to gain 
entrance into the building. Of- 
ficers refused to let her past the 
platform at the door. She was 
talked to and escorted down. The 
crowd then left but a few min- 
utes later made a second move to- 
ward the jail. When one man 
spoke as if he intended, to rush 
the building, another quieted 
him. The mob gave way again. 

Two officers then took the girl 
between them and started to ai 
automobile. The crowd swarmed 
around them but made no at- 
tempt to wrest her from the au- 
thorities. As the nob got close, 
the officers shouted "stay back.'" 
Once in the car Miss Gardner 
dropped in a faint on the rear 
seat. She was taken away at high 
speed to the jail at Hobart, Okla. '

apartment last week by Jennie 
Stanley, 22, her colored former 
maid. But $685 -in cash is gone, 
spent on a Harlem "good time." 

Mrs. Navin, playing detective, 
figured the woman she suspect-

sex when they get money, buy 
clothes. She discovered Miss 
Stanley actusdly did go shopping, 
taking along a male companion.

that company's rates by Citx At-

dition, subscribers in the "ex- 
tended area" will benefit by 
other reductions which will bring

102 years old, who lives down 
by the railroad tracks in South 
Rocky Mount, and who, inspite 
of her advanced age, keeps in- 
formed on matters of current 
interest, is still hale and hearty 
and earns a little spending 
mofiey by taking in washing at 
her home. According to the 
records, "Granny" was bom in 
Spain on July 16, 1834, has 
lived in both the North and 
South, has had five husbands, 
all of whom she has buried and 
is the mother of 24 children. 

According to Granny, she 
eats, drinks and smokes to her 
heart's content and has never 
suffered any ill effects from 
these causes during her long 
span of life. She says she fears 
God and "de night air" more 
than anything else, the former 
being very good and the latter, 
very bad. Her philosophy of 
life is simple; "I'll stay hyah

By Kotie Wilton 

I went to Polytechnic high 
school for the next six months. 

But still one more require- 
ment had to be met. I needed 
money for an entrance fee. I 
found, too, that I would need 
money for "books. The janitress 
■t Metropolitan became ill. For 
•rfx weeks I worked as janitress 
and saved the money necessary 
to pay my entrance fee and have 
a little over. 

While gomg lo conege I kept 
on with odd jobs. And then the 
"depression" came, and jobs were 
scarce. During my 3rd year of 
college I went to my good friend, 
Miss Jean Bernard, the Girls 
V i c e-Principal of Metropolitan 
and later of Frank Wiggins, and 
told her my predicament. She 
secured a job for me that would 
afford financial security. That 
job was cleaning bath rooms (18 
of them) in a local hotel from 
mid-night to 6:30 in the morn- 
ing. At 6:30 I would check out of 
the hotel and take the street car 
and bus for school. I worked on 
this job until every breath I 
was a pain. 

When I told Miss Bernard that 
I could stand it no longer, she 
contacted the philanthropist. Dr. 
John Randolph Haynes, and told 
him of my struggles. He wrote 
Mrs. Helen McLaughlin, Dean of 
Women at UCLA. Upon Mrs. Mc- 
Lau^lin'i recommendation. Dr. 

ion— Its Meaning . . 

'i'Haynes gave me a scholarship of 
$225 so that I could complete my 
college work without jeopardiz- 
ing my health. 

Completing my coUege work, I 
taught in Jjrckson College, Jack- 
son, Mississippi. And that year 
was the first year in 55 years 
that the school was not able to 
pay its teachers. 

I returned to Los Angeles aft- 
er teaching in Mississippi that 
year. I am now teaching adults 
at night fechool at 111th street 
school and two days a week at 
the Christ Temple Church. This 
is on the Emergency Education 
program. In addition to my teach- 
ing, I am working for my Mas- 
ter's Degree at U. S. C. and I 
am taking typing, art, and dress- 
making at Metropolitan high 

During this time, I have as- 
sisted a younger brother, Charles, 
through Tuskegee Institute. He, 
later, completed his college work 
at Talledega College, Talledega, 
Alabama. He took his Master's 
degree in Hijtory at U. S. C. and 
has started working on his Ph. D. 
at Chicago University. 

I still believe that education is 
the key to development. The 
price that I paid for^ ;t was not 
too great, but I wish and hope 
that we whff have struggled will 
get togetherj and make it easier 
for those who are striving. Food 
and shelter and encouragement 
should be given to the valiant 
and the young.

The woman that makes her 
home a workshop must do many 
things that are irksome and ted-

monious whole. Her family is 
taught by example that to work 
is noble. She teaches them tol-

self control is a cardinal virtue, 
that ' poise will carry them

IDELL A. BATEMAN, Contest*Mgr. 





Because of the requests being mode for 
public subscriptions to a scholarship fund— it 
was necessary that the utmost care should 
be taken in the selection of eligibles. The 
Colifornia Eagle could not be responsible for 
the whole task. A process of elimination, 
wherein the friends of the students should 
sit in judgment of their merits, was chosen. 
If the student could not find ten friends who 
thought them worthy of support in the effort 
to attain a scholarship— then automatically 
they were disqualified. 

The students listed with the nomes of 
friends supporting them are the fortunate 
ones. It is now up to the friends to justify 
their faith in the student they are helping by 
putting him or her over the top. 


Even if you don't know the students— 
make it a moral obligation to do somett|ing 
fo help in this effort to establish a yearly 
scholarship fund for worthy students. If you 
are not a subscriber— if you hove a friend 
tliqt is not a subscriber to the California 
le, send in the subscriptions and have 

them credited to any one of the students 
listed. .

No finer inspiration can come 
to any Negro than comes from a 
visit to Tuskegee. We had this 
inspirar.on Tuesday. 

The distance is 138 miles from 
Atlanta to Tuskegee Institute. 
Mrs. Tyler and two of her nieces 
accompanied us. We reached 
there "at S:40 a. m. just m time 
for breakfast in the great din- 
ing hall where about 1400 had 
just finished the morning meaJ. 

When we reached West Point, 
Ga. we crossed the state one in- 
to Alabama and felt the thrill of 
being "m the deep south'", in the 
great b'.acic-beit. From what I

The Golden Text is from the 
Psalm.s: "I will lift up miine eyes 
unto the hills, from whence 
comet.h my help. My help cometh 
fromi the Lord, which m. a d e 
heaven and earth." 

One of the Bible selections in 
the Lesson-Sermon includes 
these verses from the .Acts "".And 
there sat a certain at Ly- 
stra. im. potent in his feet, being a 
cripple from, his m.other's womb. 
•A-ho never had walked: The same 
heard Paul speak: who steadfast- 
ly beholding him, and perceiving 
that he had faith to be healed, 
said with a loud voice. Stand up- 
right on thy feet. .And he leap- 
ed and walked." 

The Lesson-Sermo.n presents 
also these pasasges from '"Sci- 
ence and Health with Key to the 
Scriptures." by Mai^.' Baker Ed- 
dv: '"The metaphysician, m.aking 
Mind his basis of operation irre- 
spective of m.atter and regarding 
the truth and harmony of being 
as superior to error and discord,

stead of weak, to cope with the

strengthens his patient with the 
stimulus of courage and consci- 
ous po-wer."

Mrs. Simms says the loss will 
exceed $75 besides the inter-

Kagawa at Methodist Church 

Tuesday afternoon the three 
auditoriums of the First M. E. 
church were filled to hear T. 
Kagawa. the Japanese Christian, 
economist and initiator of the 
Kingdom of God Movement. 
Some observer remarked, "it 
looked like the crowds who went 
to hear Christ in the gospel." 
Kagawa, the product of Christian 
Mission work in Japan, is travel- 
ling over the western world 
bringing the ecclesiasts who send 
missionaries to the Orient, back 
to the New Testament Standard 
of Christian Experience. Said he 
on Tuesday, "If the Church is 
not going to practi(^e cooperation 
and generosity and loving kind- 
ness, let it stop rcaiding the New 
Testament." A real challenge to 
professed Christians to practice 
their religion. I — A. W.

the present predicament of con-

claiming that times and school

not altogether an unknown fact. 

It is mteresfing to note how- 
ever, that with more m.en of the 
local attorney's calibre taking an 
active part in the workings of 
church conferences which have a 
good deal to do with the educa-

Speaking of good singing, we 
are reminded of how different

at the Seccnd Baptist church a 
few Sundays ago when it ap- 
peared in conjunction with Dean 
William Pickens, N. A. A, C. P. 
speaker-on-toor. The Garner en- 
semble revealed what Los An- 
geles has appercntly lacked. We 
have some passable dance band:, 
some good individual musicians, 
but a well-trained chorus of the 
Hall Johnson calibre, for in- 
stance, had been left to other 
sections of the country to furn- 
ish — that IS, until Garner, him- 
self F farnous musician,, blended 
local voices into an ensemble 
worthy of the highast praise. 

Miss Anderson's appearance 
here may well be looked forward 
to with the greatest of interest 
and enthusiasm.

Shooting Begins June 15; 

Hall Johnson Group 

Will Vocalize 

(Continued from page one) 

during the- five year run on the 
stage o£ the Green Pastures, and 
who wrote the continuity of the 
shorts, may himself play the re- 
jaaining key role. 

Hall Johnson, who tiirects the 
msunmoth choir, has l^een signed 
ind will be so credited on the 
icreen, for work as musical di- 
rector for this and other pictures 
of the series. Randol will also 
receive screen credit as author 
of the stories and co-director of 
the productions. The shorts were 
originally written more than a 
year ago by Randol irv N£w York. 
as radio continuity. The series 
was rejected then because the 
dialogue and situation^ cabled for 
performances bjr'T^egro i talent, 
notwithstanding the fact that the 
audition was favorably received. 

Contracts for the sale of the 
stories and other Hetails, was ar- 
ranged through tl)e office of Ben 
Rinaldo. who had heard the play- 
lets and urged fheir purchase. 
RKO studio, through the pur- 
chase of this series, considered 
the best 'on the market for ex- 
ploitation purposes, has probably 
scooped: other big time studios in 
providing novel screen entertain- 
ment for blase film audiences, 
with the possible exception of 
Warner Bros, who scooped the 
world with their Green Pastures. 

Keen students of the \egro 
thespian, profess to see in the 
purchase and filming of the Ran- 
dol series, an eye opener into the 
future possibilities of Negio ac- 
tors in pictures. These series of- 
fer an easy flow of histrionic ef- 
fort allegedly peculiar to the Ne- 
gro actor that should allow a wid- 
er range for selling those highly 
entertaining qualities. Thus far. 
even with marvelous Negro ac- 
tors like Stepin Fetchnt. or the 
glorious singing qualities of a 
group like Hall Johnson's, or the 
tear straining dramatic acting of 
a Louise Beavers, have all more 
- or less, been held in restraint. 
Only occasionally, and then only, 
with actors or performers of the 
above mentioned qualities, does 
the audience really feel the deep- 
er meaning and feeling of the 
Negro entertainer m photoplays. 

The series offered by Randol, 
and accepted by the RKO studio, 
is regarded as being exceptionally 
rare, in that it offers the widest 
possible range for genuine Negro 
screen entertainment without 
friction or bias, and touches a 
responsive chord in a producer 
with the courage to see it 
through. The Negro actor of the 
world stands breathlessly poised 
on the eve of the filming of the 
first of this epoch making series 
that many view as a harbinger of 
a brighter day for Negro actors 
in films.

Symphony Draws At-

(Continued from page 1) 
a comparitively young man, 
slightly past 40, in the field of 
creative music attended Oberlin 
■University conservatory of music 
on a scholarship. He, however, 
gives greater credit for his sub- 
sequent successes to Dr. Edgar 
Varese. under whom he studied 
two years. 

Other compositions by William 
Grant Still, that brought him 
sharply to the attention of sharp 
critics and paved his way for in- 
ternational recognition included 
''Darker America,'" ''From The 
Land of Dreams", and "From the 
Black Belt". "Sahdji". another 
classic composition widely play- 
ed by noted orchestra conduc- 
tors, has been rated with the 
famous ".''ifro-American S y m- 

Considerable attention is 
drawn to the signing to a studio 
contract by a major studio, of a 
man of the outstanding high 
qualifications possessed by Wil- 
liam Grant Still. Part of this in- 
terest, is undoubtedly heighten- 
ed by the fact that the learned 
composer is a Negro. However, 
it is no secret, that Mr. Still is 
classed with the best contempor- 
ary composer of the world. The 
general assignment handed Mr. 
still, gives him full opportunity \ 
to familiarize himself with studio i 
routine work of scoring and com- ! 
posing for current film produc- 
tions. He has not as yet b e e n | 
called UDon to render any orig- 
inal work.

Eddie Barefield's orchestra in its 
tine attendance at his local debut 
at the Elks hall last Thursday 
nig!:' From every source avail- 
able, the persons attended were 
\'ery well enthused, and onjov- 
ed a lovely evening. Eddie and 
his band are playing Wednesday 
and Saturdays at the Rainbow 
Gardens in San Bernardino, Cal., 
and broadcasting over Radio 
Station KFXM there, and prov- 
ing a sensation with the crowd.

I wish him much success while 
he is in California.

(Negro Press Bureau) 

The long heralded arrival of a 
brand new coastal musical aggre- 
gation headed by Eddie Barefield, 
former arranger and sax player 
of Cab Calloway's band, made 
its approach last Thursday, May 
28, nite at the Elks aud. before 
an estimated crowd of 1500 peo- 
ple, and heard itself loudly ac- 

The Barefield unit, making its 
baptismal appearance before a 
dance audience placed itself on 
public trial. It is useless to say 
more here, the crowd by its en- 
thusiastic applause again, and 
again gave its own eloquent ap- 
proval of this newest dance band 
into its midst. 

However, since this band 
which was a show itself, was re- 
viewed by this department .some 
word concerning its merit, must 
of course be forthcoming. The 
Barefield aggregation, displayed 
a fine array of orchestral talent, 
and some of the best arranged 
tunes heard around here for 
some time. But, a warning should 
be posted to the public, that this 
new unit is making its initial i 
appearance, and despite the su-<" 
perflous laudations of its bright 
young press agents, it must not 
be judged with the nation's best. 

It isn't fair to class them as 
being the best even here on the 
coast. This department feels, 
that Barefield himself, would not 
appreciate such a handicap, such 
as comparing his neo-genic or- 
chestra with any world's best. 
Again, however, it is timely to 
wave flags of cheer and triumph 
to the conquering new. band. 
Thanks to those energetic young 
men of the theatrical department 
of the L. A. Reflector under 
Fred (Skippyi Buford. for their I 
expert press agentry in getting

Railroad Train Runs Wild for 
Forty Miles With Dead 
Engineer at Throttle 

With the engineer dead and 
the fireman unconscious, the 
■westbound limited train of the 
Western Pacific Railroad ran 40 
miles toward Sacramento before 
the fireman recovered and pre- 
vented an accident. 

An unconfirmed report said a 
steampipe burst on the train 
throwing engineer O. -M. Juille- 
rat from the cab and stunning 
the fireman. The fireman lost 
consciousness as the tram passed 
ever the Yuba Bridge, but recov- 
ered near Sacramento and pilot- 
ed the train to the station. Juil- 
lerat's body was found by a sec- 
tion foreman at .\rix)ga, 10 miles 

Information Regarding 
Pay Hoaxes Story 

General Chairman Johnson 
makes report relative to the fan- 
tastic story of R. R. Employees 
receiving repayment on wa-ge 

In answer to the many mquir- 
Jes on the subject the followihg 
. report is submitted, which comes 
from the R. R. Labor chiefs as- 

A wild story is circulating 
throughout the nation that, com- 
mencing in June, the railroads 
are going to return to their em- 
ployees all of the money that 
was taken from their pay under 
the 10 per cent deduction ar- 
rangement which existed during 
part of the depression. 

Labor and officials of the 
Standard Railroad Labor or- 
ganizations are being flooded 
with letters from railroad work- 
ers asking "more information" 
about the "return" of this money. 
Some of the letters tell of re- 
ports that a definite time has 
been set for the "repayments" to 
begin in June. On the New York 
Central, for instance, men are 
being told that the money will be 
given to them "in four install- 
ments." On other lines the rumor 
says that "it will be paid in a 
lump sum to each employee." 
Most of the stories have it that 
the "money will be paid back 
with interest." On "repayment" 
are already being made on West- 
ern lines. Western railroad men 
are being told the same thing 
about the East. 

There is not a word of truth 
about any of these reports. It is 
•ne of the most amaxing hoaxes 
•ver prepetyated in this country. 
No one knows where such a 
fantastic story originated and it 
is, of course, impossible to trace 
it' to its source—if anyone cared 
to take that much trouble.

Tom Simmons L.eaves 
With Foot Print Special 

Tom Simmons, veteran Pull-

evening for Sacramento with 
what was termed a foot-print 
special. Now just what those who 
departed on Mr. Simmons car 
were supposed to do in the foot- 
print line was the question which 
Simmons was concerned about 
was whether h i s passengers 
would live up to their name and 
only leave him foot prints 'for

Porters Riled Up Over 
Conditions of Extra Board 

Many complaints have been re-

Los Angeles District over the 
continual hiring of new porters 
with apparently no lines or work 
for m^m. Extra men are now 
called upon to remain in town 
for almost a week before they 
are given an asignment out of 
town. Just what steps will be 
taken to relieve this condition 
has not yet been determined. The 
management states that the 
work will soon be abundant for 
every extra man hired, however, 
the process of workioi up to this 
work is taking its tell in dollars 
and cents and the un'-rest is 
growing louder and louder each

sponsored by Industrial Council 
No. 2 at Jordan high school audi-

forth an attendance that more 
than filled the great auditorium. 

With Mrs. Charlotta Bass in 
charge of the ceremonies an ex-

Among the special cefebrity 
guests present were Mr. Ostrom, 
representative of Mayor Shaw 
who was in Washington working 
for the approval of additional 
Public 'Works projects in

fora few minutes in a happy 
mood of realistic optimism that 
inspired his hearers "with the be-

also spoke for a few minutes. 
Police Chief Davis was in Mex-

tain Ross McDonald who briefly 
outlined the objectives of the 
Police department and the indi-

asked parents not to try to 
frighten children into being good 
by threatening to "call the pol- 
ice" because the department's at-

of friendship and they want the 
children to look on them as

SUtioN E.L.D. 

Good afternoon, everyone. At 
this time we bring you Station 
ELD in its weekly broadcast over 
the printer's air from the tower 
of the California Eagle at 38th 
and Central with E. L, Dorsey at 
the mike. 

Howdy, friends. Guy Houston, 
veteran railroad employee, who 
has been confined in the railroad 
hospital in San Francisco for 
some time, is again at home. We 
are glad to have him with us 
once again and hope for his 
speedy recovery. 

Rev. Clayton Russell, popular 
and efficient pastor of the Inde- 
pendent Church of Christ, has 
almost become a sensation over 
night, so to speak. Never in the 
history of Los Angeles among our 
group has a young man risen to 
such heights. Demonstra'ting the 
fact once again that our young 
men of today are capable and 
worthy of leadership. The Inde- 
pendent Church has always stood 
, up for youth and in return for 
its stand is reaping a rich re- 
ward in increased attendance and 

Mrs. Geneva Wade, who was 
taken suddenly ill last week, is 
at this broadcast, much improv- 

The General Hospital which is 
.supposed to be an institution 
built with and supported by tax- 
payers' money to serve the com- 
munity, is fast becoming auto- 
cratic in its atmosphere. No 
longer is it possible for those 
whose money supports the hos- 
pital to get medical consideration 


gratis as in former years. Exor- 
bitant fees cire demanded. Folks 
are forced to mortgage their 
homes, in fact, deed them to the 
County in order to be insured 
treatment, while foreigners con- 
tinue to crowd loyal citizens out 
of their place as patients. 

Last week we mentioned the 
evils of taxation from a bond 
angle. The County hospital situa- 
tion is-only another angle about 
which something should be< done 
to make it posible for taxpayers 
to receive the treatment for 
which they pay. 

And by the way, those of you 
who were so unfortunate as to 
miss the Breakfast Club break- 
fast the other Sunday morning, 
missed a real treatt in not hear- 
ing Orlando Northcutt. While 
the Breakfast Club is credited 
with having good programs on 
every occasion, this one was in 
particular exceptionally excel- 

And now, friends, summer with 
its vacation periods is here, and 
many are preparing to spend 
theirs in various ways and man- 
ners. Everyone should take a lit- 
tle time off at least, as it will 
improve the body, mind and 
soul, and better- prepare you to 
serve your employer or your 
business in a more efficient man- 
ner. Good afternoon. 

That concludes the broadcast 
of E. L. Dorsey. We will be witl; 
you at this lime again next Fri- 
day. Your announcer is Max 
Williams of the California Eagle 
Publishing Company. 

Your Guiding Star 

Col. John C. Robinson, former 
"Air Ace" of Emperor Haile 
Selassie of Ethiopia, who ar- 
rived in New York recently 
aboard the "Europa," was given 
a cheering welcome by the pop- 
ulace and feted by the United 
Aid for Ethiopia. Col. Robin- 
son, who is from Chicago, won 
international renown when he 
flew from Addis Ababa to 
Adowa and back, eluding pur- 
suing Italian planes, during the 
early part of the Ethiopian war 
last October. During the war 
he was Wbunded in the hand 
and gassed, but survived. He 
plans to teach aviation at Tus- 
kegee Institute, his Alma Matr 
er. (Calvin Service) 

S. G.— Will I marry the man'' 
I have in mind if I leave here, 
and be successful. 

Ans. — You will marry this 
man, and he will be a good pro- 
vider. Your sign blends perfectly 
and I see every reason for a 
successful matrimonial future. 

A. P.— What is the trouble 
with my eyes; will they ever be 
normal again? 

Ans. — Fnis trouble with yoi^r 
eyes is {iue to a mental cause, 
more than a physical one, and I 
cannot too strongly stress the 
fact that unless better care is 
taken of your eyes, it will de- 
velop into something serious. 

E. W— Will I marry soon and 
have the blessing I am hoping 

Ans. — I do not see a marriage 
for you u n t i 1 1937; you will 
have what you want after this 
marriage and it will be a boy. 

L. C. — I had one of your Fore- 
cast and Guides last year; 
please tell me if they are the 
same price this year as I want to 
get one? 

Ans. — Yes. you can get my As- 
trological Forecast and Guide 
for 1936 for SI. 00, with 10 ques- 
tions answered free. It will guide 
you to success and happiness. 

W. M. S.— Will my wife and I 
ever go back together? 

Ans. — No. you will not go back 
to your wif<>. It will be best to 
call the whrile thing off and try 
und forget it. 

M. L. E.— When will I marry 
and what are his initials? 

Ans. — You have not met the 
man you will marry as yet. I am 
of the impression you will meet 
him at the home of one of your 
friends. The initials are R. S. 

M. S. — Does my husband love 
me. and will we go North? 

Ans. — Yes, your husband does 
love you. and I see some degree 
of success if you take the trip 
you have in mind. You will 
eventually settle there and I 
would advise you to make every 
effort to go through with your 

J. M. H.— Will I marry the boy 
in June that gave me the ring'' 

Ans. — You will marry this per- 
son, and I predict a happy ma- 
trimonial life, which will great- 
ly improve your financial and so- 
cial aspects. 

P. B. — I like to take chances on 
games; tell me how I might have 
a little more luck? 

Ans. — I would advise you to 
send for my How to Win Book, 
which gives vital numbers and 
vital days. It will also tell you 
what game.s to play. Price SI. 50, 
or S2.U0 with 10 questions an- 
swered FREE. 

A. J. — Why can't J. J. and me 
get along; have we been cros- 

Ans. — You are a victim of 
imaginations; no person has, or 
no person is possessed with the 
power to do anything to cross 
you, so just forget about it.

The next time Robert Hooks, 
40, o! 1472 E. 21st street, decides 
he wants to collect a debt, m.ay- 
be he'll employ a collection agen- 
cy to do the job. Hooks languish- 
ing in jail last Saturday had am- 
ple occasion to ponder the strange 
quirp of circumstances that saw 
him lodged behind steel bars, 
with suspicion of robbery charg- 
es facing him. 

Cornelius Phillips, or 1234 E. 
Adams street, told radio patrol- 
men A. B. Case and G. Lund- 
strum, who answered the call, 
that Hooks had lured him to his 
home on a ruse, and once there 
demanded $1.75 of him at "run- 
point. He said the man insisted 
that he owed it to him for dam- 
ages. He gave the man $1.50 all 
he had, he told the officers. 

The officers arrested Hooks 
and searched his house for the 
gun Phillips claimed he used to 
force the money from him. No 
gun could be found in the house 
or yard. Hooks told the officer 
that he occasionally hired the 
complaining witness to do odd 
jobj for him.

Now that the quintuplets are two yeors old and 
everyone is wishing them a ha^py birthday this week, 
it is being whispered about that maybe they won't be 
having such a very hoppy birthday on account of 
what looms ahead. 

Canadians, who sometimes copy new U, S. me- 
thods, ore said to be^considering a Quintuplet Tax. 
With all the movie rrjoney the quints have and some 
more also, they've become a pretty big business. And 
besides look how many there ore. 


Fascism in America? Why, that's ridiculous, a 
lot of people will soy. We ore too deeply rooted to 
Democracy. It can't happen here. 

And yet today Michigan is agog over the dis- 
covery of o murderous fascist band called the Black 
Legion. Activities of their 200,000 members are 
thought to extend over ten or fifteen states. They 
are accused of killing one mon, and suspected of 
murdering others. They hod marked 50 more for 

Authorities will probably break up this bond, 
and several others before tM^' are through. But that 
will not alter the basic moiody, the fact that men in 
great numbers ore wilHng to participote ih the types 
of terrorism that gave birth to fascism and dictotor- 
ship in Eurofje. 

As in Europe, their purposes and methods ore to 
intimidote and kill, if necessary, any opponents who 
ore of a different race than they, a different religion, 
or of different political beliefs. 

Now this is not the American way, and you can 
rest assured that the forces of low and order, for 
some time to come, at leost, will be able to deal with 
any fascist violence. But the big problem is to dis- 
courage the movement where it originates, in the 
minds of misled men. 

What America reolly needs is a messiah to 
preach enlightened Democracy with the some fervor 
that these "isms" advocates bring to bear. 


America, the song says, is not only the "home of 
the brove" but also the "land of the free." It has 
been the haven of the world's persecuted. It was 
founded because a small group of settlers in a wild, 
new land, insisted upon on escape from tyranny. 

It has prided itself upon freedom — of speech, of 
the press, of doing what its citizens choose to do in 
the pursuit of happiness. It has fought, time and 
again, for those things. 

Fortunately, most of the fighting has been done 
with influences outside the borders of the ngtiori. 
That has kept the citizens free from malice toward 
one another. Occasionally, however, it hos been 
necessary for folks to do a little fighting at home. 
Not with guns and swords; but with words. 

In each case, the press — the newspapers — have 
been leaders. The result is that the United States 
now stands out in the world as o free rxjtion. Its 
newspapers say what they think, except that the lows 
of lit>el keep them from maligning, molciiously, a 
mon's fsersonol character. 

It is interesting, therefore, when the nation's out- 
stonding publishers assemble in convention and de- 
clare fervently against what they believe to be ten- 
derKies -toward suppression of the free press. The 
power of the press in the past has beer^so great that 
jt has not let itself be all stirred up over^ittle things. 

The publishers soy it is in the form of persecution 
of those who dare to soy what they think about some 
thinos to which they object. After looking boek- 
word, we con also look into the future and predict 
thot newspapers never will permit anyone to deprive 
America's millions of their freedom. 


Under the caption 'The Tribune Told You So," 
the Washington Tribune, Finley Wilson's paper, soys 
there is on existing statute that guarantees omple 
protection from such evils, which we quote: 

"Whoever under color of any low, statute, ordi- 
nance, regu^ation, or custom, willfully subjects or 
causes to be subjected, any inhabitant of any Stote, 
Territory, or District to tKe deprivation of any rights, 
privileges, or immunities, secured or protected by the 
Constitution ar>d laws of the United States, or to dif- 
ferent punishments, pains, or penalties, on occount 
c^ such inhabitant being on alien, or by reason of his 
color, or race, thon ore prescribed for the punishment 
of citizens, shoilJbe fined rrot more than one thou- 
sand dollars, or imprisoned not more than or>e year, 
or botflll'— Section 52, Chapter 3. Title 81 U. S. C. A. 
(Revised Statutes 5510.^ 

By way of comnr>€nt on the statute quoted above. 
The Tribune soys: 

"And there ore supporting statutes which cover 
every contingency which might arise requiring 
change of jurisdiction, military protection by forces 
of the U. S., ocfivi ty by federal officers, and expense 
by the Government acting under Presidential author- 
ity, scattered through the lows of this country. 

"Because of this protection, an election officer 
in Wilkinsboro, North Carolina, was fined $300 re- 
cently for refusing to register o colored citizen; and 
the end is not yet in sight. 

"It is for this reason that we have NOT been 
found among those who cried and clamored for o 
needed is evidence and prosecution by able attorneys 
supported by public opinion.

That was the queition that 
punctured our consciousncaa Me- 
morial Day while listening to eu- 
logies on thoie who gave their 
last full measure of devotion for 
the Stars and Stripes. 

We thought of Crispus Attucks, 
the '31ack Yankees", San Juan, 
those sleeping "over there". 

Then we thought of Judge 
Ljmch, East St Louis, Houstcm, 
Tulsa, Hemdon, Scottsboro. 


Refusal of Congress to consider the bill to pre- 
vent mob murder in the United States is not only a 
disgrace to American civilization, but a signal to 
such cut-throats and thugs as comprise the Black 
Legion to go on with the slaughter and oppression of 
the weak. 

Detroit officials realizing that her lav/ enforcing 
agencies are honeycombed with members of the gong 
of black hooded thugs, appealed to the Government 
for aid in stamping out this murderous band. Assist- 
once Vas denied on the grounds that no federal law j 
had been violated. i 

A few weeks ogo at Shelbyville, Tenru,. a mob, 
bent on lynching a Negro, not only destroyed the 
court house but also o Federol building, and as yet 
the Hoover crack G-men have foiled to toke any oc- 
tion. Wonder what constitutes a crime against the 
Federal Government-' 

A letter to the Prosecuting Attorney in Detroit 
from Dallas, Texas, tells of the method used by this 
bond of organized hoodlums. The writer said he was 
a member of the Legion, but hod become dissatisfied 
with the organization's methods. 

"When on agent goes into o nsw town to set up 
Legion chapter," the letter read, "the first thing to 
do is to take someone from another town ond have 
him block up like a Negro and commit some crime, 
mostly assault^ on white women Then you have o big 
field t% work fn. The first persons to join ore i^oHy 
the police, sheriff and district judge. Next the jailer 
and the prison guards. 

"After you get a man to join he gets o pistol and 
a block robe. N//hen a real Negro is hunted, the first 
Negro you find is arrested, carried to jail ond licked 
until he confesses. Then he signs a confession. 

"Every time o Negro confesses, you can get from 
10 to 30 new memh>ers. 1 have been in s6me southern 
cities where Negroes were lynched. The 'generol' 
(presumably a Legion official) , soys the Legion took 
in 300 new members after bne lynching." 

At lost the worm has t^urned and white men hcfve 
fallen victims of these murderers, which doubtless 
means that quick action will be taken to crush the 
very life and vitals out of this hydra-headed monster. 


Some two million humans of

Health and Progress 

By Dr. Ruth J. Temple 

(What foods to eat to get them) 

This is the third article on the 
popular and healthful topic of 
vitamins C. D and E. 

Vitamin D is very closely asso- 
ciated with the prevention of ric- 
kets. Rickets is said to affect from 
50 per cent to 80 per cent of the 
children in the temperate zone, 
and three fourths of the infants 
in cities are affected by the dis- 
ease in some form. This is a di- 
sease in which the body's use 
of calcium and phosphorus is so 
disturbed that normal growth 
and development are impossible. 
So we see there are three factors 
concerned in rickets, viz: The 
proper proportion of calcium and 
phosphorus in the diet, and vita- 
min b, or ultraviolet radiation. 

The ultraviolet rays of the 
abundance in the skin) to vita- 

min D. These rays cannot be 
transmitted through common 
window glass. 

Vitamin D enables the body to 
mobilize calcium and phosphorus, 
and deposit these mmerals in the 
bones as calcium phosphate. 
Where this is not accomplished, 
the foilowing symptoms of rick- 
ets may appear: 

1 — Failure of the bones to cal- 
cify properly, with resulting de- 
formities as bowlegs, knock- 
knees, ends of long bones en- 
larged, square head, beaded ribs, 
and failure of the chest to devel- 
op properly. 

2 — Protuberant abdomen. 

3 — Susceptibility to respiratory 

4 — Poor teeth. 

There is considerable evidence 
that children who are protected 
from rickets are less liable to 
have respiratory diffkmlties in 


Have seen mountains crumple 
under the blast of dynamite and 
moved to the valleys or the sea.

sives or the faith man- had to put 
to the test that suggestion in Ho- 
ly Writ?

rows? It'll work — "if YOU ....'' 

later years. 

"■While nothing else can take 
the place of calcium or of phos- 
phorus, it is probable that vita- 
min A, vitamin C, and vitamin D 
each has its own place in helping 
to regulate and coordinate the 
processes of growth and develop- 
ment of bones and teeth." 

It has been demonstrated that 
the larger the amounts of cereals, 
especially oatmeal without vita- 
min D, the mori severe the rick- 
ets and the poorer the teeth. If 
there is plenty of vitamin D, the 
amount of cereals causes no de- 

This vitamin can be stored. 
and it is very stable to heat. It is 
vital that an abimdance of it be 
taken especially during pregnan- 
cy and lactation, and during 

There are not many foods that 
contain large amounts of vitamin 
D. Egg yolk, milk, and butter 
contain vitamin D to a limited 
degree, the amount depending 
upon the exposure of the ani- 
mals to the sunshine. The fish 
oils are fairly rich in the sub- 
stance. Leafy vegetables contain 
a little of the vitamin. We must 
get ' out into the sunshine and 
partake of the "sunshine vita- 
min." So many people are shut 
up in offices that it would be a 
blessing to do away with wear- 
ing of hats while going to and 
from work. This could not. of 
course, apply in the tropics where 
the heat rays are so intense, but 
it would really be a blessing in 
the temperate zones. 

Where one cannot have sun 
baths or is confined indoors, vita- 
min D can be taken internally. 
There are many products on the

similar to this had happened in 
Italy. The first fruit to come to 
the home land from its conquest 
in Ethiopia is a tune that has 
captured the entire country. It 
is called "Little Black Face", and 
the song is being sung by the 
Italian soldiers to the black 
beauties of the conquered land. 
But one of the heads of a lead-

Letters to the Editor . . 


The Editor, Madam: 

I came to Bishop, Calif., Nov. 
4, 1935. I had a time trying 
to find a place to stay. 

To tell the truth about it 
I was turned down at all hotels 
and the homes could not have a 
black man around. I tried to rent 
a cabin and the best I could get 
was $2 per night. A young lady at 
the Highway Office thou^t it a 
shame for one in America because 
of his color to not get a place to 
stay. She went out and got me 
four blankets, one pillow and 
three pillow slips. A young man 
then opened his door and let me 
put a cat in his cabin. It is only 
two families of black up here and 
they did not have any room at 

Well I tell you the white man 
is a white man, that is alL L. A. 
is just about the same. When I 
went to church the children 
would say, "Mother, look at the 
nigger." The Rev. Wallace, pas- 
tor of the M. E. church, was very 
nice, made me welcome, and 
from time to time saw to it that I 
taught some class in Sunday 
school, from the high school sen- 
ior class down to the small boys 
and girls. 

February 9, Lincoln Day, I was 
the speaker of the morning, and 
also the speaker of the evenmg 
at Big Pine, 17 mUes south. The 
subject was "The Negro's Prob- 
lem in -America and His Contrib- 
ution to Education." We had a 
large crowd at each place. Since 
then I have been treated like an 
American citizen. 

They say up here he is a 
preacher. (Dne thing I have tried 
to do, I have been a real black 
man and have told them time 
and again color does not make a 
man, if he has not character he 
is no man. So have I tried to 
prove this by my own living. J 

simDly thought I would give you 
a bird's eye view of the cotxIitiHB 
up b«e. 

Ok of the leading white mm 
here wanted to know irtqr 'we 
wanted equality. "Was H be came 
we mat. wanted to fo witlT. wtiita 
wom«)?'' I asked him if the best 
class of white men want to (o 
with black women. He said na 
Then I replied that the best dass 
of^black men did not tbink of 
wJiite WMnen." He said, , "WriL 
why is it that they have so natdi 
trouble in the South?" I said you 
know that all that is false, nine* 
tenths of it is a white man #ith 
a blackened face. I saw an utidc

then kill a few black men for it.

Last week, one of Father Di- 
vine's "white angels" in New- 
York was mysteriously shot and 
wounded, and according to her 
story, her assailent was a mem- 
ber of our race. The victim is 
said to be a member of a very 
wealthy Massachussetts family. 
This creates a mystery, for 
what would the black man want 
to kill an "angel" for? 

The first lady of the land. 
President Roosevelt's highly in- 
telligent and broadminded wife 
brought 60 delinquent girls to 
the White House and entertain- 
ed them on the lawn with a 
party 4nd refreshments. 49 of 
the 60 vpere beautiful bronze 
misses, and need only slight dis- 
cipline to prepare them for so- 
ciet>-. The act of Mrs. Roosevelt 
is one which could well be fol- 
lowed by many of our snobbish 
society matrons who read papers, 
drink tea and play bridge, but 
do pothing practical to save er- 
rants an- bring them back into 
the circle of orderly society. 

The heart balm suit brought 
by a white nurse against a race 
doctor in Des Moines, ended 
when the j*J7 of six white men 
and six white w^men brought in 
a verdict" awarding the pla^tiff 
$1.00 damages. The case atous- 
ed much interest as the white 
nurse had for her lawyer a race 
member as did the physician. 
The defense*attomey, a young 
ambitious youth just admitted 
to the bar. was ' pitted against a 
veteran of 35 years of active 
practice. She is not satisfied 
with the jtiry's veniict, but the 
doctpr is jubilant, and we might 
add that it is a lesson to both 
sides. Wise, pretty, fascinating 
unsophisticated white womoi 
who chase after professional 
men of our group are dangerous 
acquaintances, — SELAH. 


The Editor, Madam: 

Will you please find a spot in 
your paper to mention the fine 
civic work done in this city for. 
years by Miss Frieda Shaw. And 
if there is any deficiency in ttie 
present quality of her group it 
is due definitely to the fact that 
new invading singing groups are 
working so I am told for a moeh 
less salary than in the past. A&d 
in view of the fact teat Misa^ 
Shaw's group is made up sidi^y 
of local a 'lists, she finds traiUe 
in getting them to drop the es- 
tablished motion picture salary 
rtandards. I truthfully believe if 
Mi^ Shaw is given a little more 
local support by .the many or- 
ganizations and churches she has 
helped, she would measure np 
with any organization, and is, I 
believe, entitled to her share of 
group singing work. If we do not 
defend our own. when they are 
right we will soon permit the 
outside artist through cheap 
miethods and an uncontrollabk 
desire to break in the pietore 
business, to cut the game to 
•pieces. We will soon have no op- - 
portunity for the youngsters we 
graduate yearly. I believe- the 
business is big enough to take 
care of our locals and a food 
many importations but not the 
entire populace of New York.

Pidcens, who was on his way 
to BakA^field to fill a speaking 
engagement at that city's branch 
meeting Sunday^ picked Ander- 
son up just outside of Castaic, ac- 
cording to reports. The white 
man was so grateful, it is said, 
ibat he toldnhe N. A. A. C. P. di- 
rector that any number of his 
rfcce had passed him by and he 
bad more or less lost hope of ever 
getting to Bakersfield, his home. 

Pickens, in a statement follow- 
ing the accident, claimed that due 
to heavy rains in the mountains 
along' his route just out of Grape- 
vine, it was cold and he closed 
the windows of the sedan, a N. A. 
A. C. P. car. According to his 
statement, the monoxide gas "got 
him" and he dozed while driving. 

Continuing, he cljiimed that 
while in a daze he saw a truck 
ahead of him, which was going 
in the same direction and at- 
xempted to put on his brakes. He 
missed them, however, according 
to his story, and had to turn to 
the left in an attempt to pass. 

Still handicapped by the ef- 
fects of the gas. he said that as he 
turned in an effort to pass the 
truck he met another car and had 
to -swerve immediately to the 
right. At this moment, he said, 
in trying to stop his car. instead 
of pulling out his ke,v as he at- 
tempted to do, he pulled out the 
throttle, and swerved to the right 
to avoid the truck. It was then 
that he ran into the tree and 
completely demolished his car. 

Pickens, after being treated by 
the Highway Patrol and finally 
by I>rs. Handis and Charles A. 
Jackson of Los Angeles for a 
broken, arm and abrasions about 
the head, was removed to the 
Kem County jail, pending out- 
coone of the white man's condi- 

Anderson was first taken to 
San Joaquin hospital and then 
the Kem County hospital, suffer- 
ing from internal injuries. 

Anderson was married and was 
the father of one child. 

News of the accident spread 
rapidly and Bakersfield and Los 
Angeles citizens caime to the aid 
of the N. A. A. C. P. director, al- 
most immediately. Dr. Handis 
and Mr. Collins of Bakersfield 
went the $500 bond set for Pick- 

Los Angeles citizens, however. 
1-sd by L. G. Robinson, prominent 
civic leader, were instrumental in 
securing Pickens' release on bond 
when he along with Dr. H. Claude 
Hudson. Saturday night secured 
the assistance of the Los Angeles 
County's Sheriff's office in hav- 
ing a teletyped message sent to 
Bakersfield advising the author- 
ities of Pickens' status, as to rep- 
utation and character, both local- 
ly and nationally.

- president of the Los Angeles 
branch of the N. A. A Or P.. at 
the request of Pickens, aloOo 
with the advice of "Walter White, 
of New York City, who is the 
national secretary of the associa- 
tion, as attorney represented 
Pickens and was instrumental in 
forestalling any complaint of any 
nature being filed. The local 
branch prexy went to Bakers- 
field. along wth Dr. Hudson 
Sunday afternoon, amd remained 
until Monday, 

Bakersfield citizens who as- 
sisted Dean ' Pickens included 
Mrs, Lniian Drisden. Pearl Low-

in Bakersfield for the weekend 
included Dr. Albert Baumann,

By the time readers will have 
digested this column, the Repub- 
lican National Convention will 
be on in full blast. However this 
event has not slowed up the on- 
ward rush of those who seek 
local political preferment as the 
following WUI show: 

J. George Channeson, for the 
Republican nomination for As- 
sembly in the 54th District. 

Edward Porter Peers for office 
No. 8 of Superior Court. 

Ernest O. 'Volght, for the Dem- 
ocratic nomination in the 61st 
Assembly District. 

'Warren W. Butler, for the Re- 
publican nomination in the 69th 
Assembly District. 

Clara "V. Schmidt, for the Dem- 
ocratic nomination i i the 13th 
Congressional District. 

Ida Mav Adams for Superior 
Court office No. 1-3. 

Bertram Marathon Bell, for 
Republican County Central Com- 
mittee in the 67th District. 

Myron C. Burr, for Republican 
County Central Committee, 49th 

Fred Roberts seems to have 
lost none of his popularity in the 
62nd District, and -his host of 
supporters say he will be the Re- 
publican nominee ^or the Assem- 

Looks as though Sam Baumann 
will oppose Augustus Hawkins 
for the Democratic nomination 
as Assemblyman from the 62nd 

The Women's Political Study 
clubs are girding for battle ahd 
will enter the fray after the con- 
vention. Many thought that Mrs. 
Betty Hill, executive secretary of 
this state wide organization, or 
Fred Roberts- would have been 
chosen as alternate to the Con- 
vention. But it seems that Mr. 
Warren and Mrs. 'Vandewater 
turned thumbs down on the 

-Assemblyman Hawkins of the 
62nd District showed up big in 
the special session of the legis- 
lature. Hawkins suggested the 
calling of the session weeks ago 
in a letter to Gov. Merriam.who 
heeded not the appeal of the 
far sighted assemblyman. He was 
one of the leaders in increasing 
age pensions. 

Hon.; James J. Boyle. 66th As- 
sembly district representative, is 
also chairman of the Assembly 
committee investigating the 

state's liquor control system. 

The board's "double my salary 
and wub?e my term" scheme is 
"the most brazen attempt on rec- 
ord of a governing body to coerce 
business and compel persons and 
firms subject to then" licensing 
power to contribute- to a slush 
fund," Boyle charged. 

It is claimed in good authority 
that Atty. Hugh E. Macbeth is 
scheduled to invade the Eastside 
in ^e interest of a certain can- 
didate. Macbeth is a forceful, 
convincing speaker and has many 
friends in the district.

Here to gather information 
from which may be modeled a 
civil service law for county and 
territorial employees. Smith, 
former member of the house of 
representatives of the Territory 
of Hawaii, left the islands last 
April 4. 

■While here he will be the 
guest of Messrs John L. HUl, of 
the Angelus Funeral Home, and

men were guests of the Hawaiian

The plans for the government- 
al study tour of Smith, which 
Was recommended by Oscar F. 
Goddard, CPA, director of the 
research bureau, were approved 
last March 20, by directors of the 
bureau at their annual meeting. 

Before leaving Honolulu, Mr. 
Smith, in discussing the objec- 
tives of his trip to the United 
States, told reporters: 

"The city-county and the ter- 
ritory already have a retirement 
system and a {jersonnel classi- 
fication plan. Thff» retirement 
system assures economic security 
of employees after long and 
faithful service or when in- 
capacitated in line of duty. 

"The classiiication plan assures 
fair and impartial treatment of 
workers, with its chief objectives 
being equal pay for equal work 
under sipiilar working c o n d i- 
tions, and periodic increases in 
salary rates for employees who 
render satisfactory public ser- 

Continuing, the bureau secre- 
tary said, "A merit or civil ser- 
vice system would assure com- 
petent and f a i t h ful employees 
continuity and security in s e r- 
vice and would eliminate large 
t movers of employees with 
each change of administration." 

The civil service research tour 
of the government official in- 
cluded San Francisco, Portland, 
St. Paul, Minneapolis, Chicago, 
Detroit, New York. Philadelphia, 
Atlantic City, Cincinnati, Denver 
and this city. 

Mr. Smith is reported to be the 
only Negro member of the 
worl" amous Lions Club and his 
visit .ere is being awaited with 
much interest by local citizens.

his gun,the officer suddenly

terrific smashes to the man's

The man was handcuffed and tak-

booked by Davis on charges of 
suspicion of assault with a dead-

Later the man was re-bocked 
imder charges of violating sec-

was a grocer and gave his ad-

Asks Newspaper to Push 
Appeal JFor Funds for Pair 

(NeiTO Press Borean) 

Following a late hour confer- 
ence with her son's lawyer John 
S. Cooper, dxiring which it was 
related that funds were immedi- 
ately needed to push an inquiry 
into the discovery of new and 
shed new light on the innocence 
of Oscar and Harry Bigelow, re- 
cently convicted of robbery and 
assault, Mrs. Emma Bigelow, 
mother of the boys, sought funds 
from a friendly public to push 
the fight to free her boys. 

The t^^'o Bigelows were con- 
victed lest April 10 on charges 
of robbery and assault. They 
made motion at the time for a 
new trial. Judge Frank M. Smith 
sitting in Department 40 of the 
Superior court, denied their mo- 
tion April 21. They subsequently 
launched an appeal. They have 
been confined since the trial in 
the county jail awaiting the ap- 
peal motion. 

The California Eafle has been 
asked arfti designated by Mrs. 
Emma Bigelow, mother of the 
imprisoned boys, to make the 
appeal for voluntary funds from 
friends of the pair. 

With funds thus collected Atty. 
John S, Cooper is expected to 
lay the collected new material 
before the grand jury. This evi- 
dence is understood to reveal 
hitherto undiscovered facts that 
the prosecution witnesses Jim 
Yuen and Jim Wong, ■ Chinese 
lottery operators who were held 
up and robbed the night of Oc- 
tober 22, had offered bribes to 
witness to testify against the 
two accused men. The Eagle is 
positively NOT making this ap- 
peal for FUNDS. But lends its 
columns to urge such FUNDS be 
raised and sent to Mrs. Emma 
Bigelow, 910 E. 50th street, to be 
in turn turned over to the proper 
persons working in the interest 
of gaining freedom to the men. 

I BELIEVE many years ago the 
Federated club women adopted 
some such slogan _as this, "Lift- 
ing as you climb." 

Very often I hear some sensi- 
tive old soul say, "I wonder what 
is to become of the younger gen- 
eration. All it seems to think 
about is dancing and drinking." 

Well. I readily agree with those 
who think that there is too little 
wholesome amusement provided 
for our young people, no 5ce or 
roller skating rinks, no .bowling 
alleys, practically no business or- 
ganizations backed by the young 
peoples' seniors, where they may 
meet and plan for the future 
with the assurance that they will 
be encouraged and supported fi- 
nancially. Just the sweaty dance 
hall as the only outlet for their 
p)entup energ>'. 

Harry Levette, former Califor- 
nia Eagle employee, has stepped 
out from the beaten path of 
amusement and recreation for 
the youth. This week he gath- 
ered about him a group of high 
school and college girls and or- 
ganized, what is classified in 
baseball, as a soft ball team. On 
the Eastside Mr. Levette has or- 
ganized six of these teams, one of 
which I am proud to say, is head- 
ed by the Eagle's youngest, but 
one of its most proficient staff 
WTiters, Almena Davis, and is 
known as the California Eaglet- 
tes. This is a step forward in a 
healthier form of amusement, 
and to you. Mr. Levette, thi» is 
"lifting as you climb". 

Let us not only get behind our 
young people in the establish- 
ment and cultii-ation jOf health 
and moral building recreation, 
but also take what we have in 
the way of business nuclei, and 
build bigger and better business, 
furnishing employment of ail 
types for our own. 

I HAVE heard so often this say- 
ing that a business has been 
established for so many years 
and hasn't made any progress. 

When you make this remark, 
if you would in the same breath 
ask yourself thi; question — What 
have I done to make this busi- 
ness a success, perhaps you would 
immediately discover why the 
aforementioned institution has 
been able to mark time only. 

I was talking to a business man 
who contemplated making a bus- 
iness investment on the Eastside 
in the near future. He had dis- 
cussed his plan with a gentleman 
and had told him that he planned 
to use all Negro help in his pro- 
posed venture. Whereupon the 
gentleman, who claimed to have 
had experience with Negroes in 
business, advised him not to use 
Negro help because, said he, 
"They are inefficient and playful 
in business. A venture with them 
means a loss of capital." 

It remains with the Negi-o to 
prove whether or not this accusa- 
tion is true or false. 

IN ORDER to free myself of my 
sin?. I must first admit that I 
have them. As a matter of fact 
one of the greatest impediments 
in the vray of Negro economic 
progress is jealousy. If the Negro 
■would spend half as much time 
l^«tudying how to do business 
within his own group as he does 
tearing it down, his future busi- 
ness outlook would be a wHole 
lot brighter than it is.. With a 
degree of pride, I point to the 
Harvey Bros, who own and op- 
erate one of the largest sand and 
gravel corporations in the State 
of California. Some years ago 
five Harvey brothers, members 
of a big pioneer I-os Angeles 
family, formed themselves ifltb a 
corporation and went to work. 
Today, the Harvey corporation is 
not composed of "successful Ne- 
groes" but snccessfol business 

IT DOES seem strange to me 
that only on the eve of politi- 
cal campaigns reformers become 
suddenly conscious of a "terrible 
state of affairs ih our city, county 
and state governments" and that 
the dear public is unconcerned. 

Apparently the Board of Edu- 
cation has jumped right into the 
center of things in the matter of 
this pre-campaign clean-up, I am 
heartily in sympathy with any- 
thing ih&t makes for cleaner and 
better conditions, but I am ap- 
pxcbensive as. to the motive of 
^thVf ^iddpn outbreak, especially 
active participation by the 
lemben of the Board of Educa- 


secretary of the Los Angeles 
branch of the National Asso- 
ciation for the Advancement 
of Colored People, an drccently 
elected clerk of local Camp No. 
2 of the American Woodmen. 


The Los Angeles Post Office 
has established Units at which 
Veterans may present their 
bonds for certification in the 
vicinity of the various Post Of- 
fice stations now established, ac- 
cording to release from the post- 
master's office. 

The Unit for station's "K", 
Vernon Branch and Florence 
Branch is to be established at 
5429 So. Central avenue in a 
building secured by Benj. J. 
Bowie Post of the American Le- 
gion, and will be under the su- 
pervision of Alva C. Garrott, 
clerk in charge from the tr. S. 
Post Office. 

This Unit will open 1 p. m. 
June 16 and stay or>en until 9 
p. m. It will open every morn- 
ing at 8 a. m. until 9 p. m. there- 

Every precaution known to 
Postal Offices has come into play 
to see that the right veteran gets 
the bonds and the money there- 

Veterans must sign their bonds 
in the presence of a certifying of- 
ficer. If the veteran is unknown 
to the certifying clerks on duty, 
one or two witnesses whq know 
the veteran and are thetfiselves 
known to the certifying officer, 
must sign the bond in the space 

Pickens' Wife 
Comes to Aid 

Mrs. William Pickens, wife of 
the veteran NAACP director. 
Dean Pickens, who was injured 
in an automobile accident which 
claimed the life of a white hitch- 
hiker on U. S. Highway No. 99 
two weeks ago, arrived here early 
this week from New York to 
aid her husband in any way pos- 

Pickens, whose preliminary 
hearing has oeen set for Wed- 
nesday, June 17, in Bakersfield, 
was on his way to that city to ad- 
dress a branch meeting when the 
car he was driving crashed into 
a tree. 

The pair will arrive in Los 
Angeles Saturday.

Man Admits 
Cashing Check 

(Negro Press Burena) 

John Hunter, 35, of 951 East 
55th street, admitted to police 
officers H. W. Ross and LeRoy 
Kelley, of Newton Division Mon- 
day, that he had stolen and 
"•ashed a LACRA check from the 
home -of Mrs. Callie Jackson, 
1156 E 51st street. Hunter told 
the officers '^ cashed the check 
because I needed the money." 

The man was nabbed after 
Mrs. Jackson complained of the 
missing check and of her suspic- 
ioning Hunter as the sneak thief 
who purloined it while visiting 
in her home. The man was book- 
ed under suspicion of forgery

Indictment Revealed Last 

Week When Book 

Is Published 

MONTGOMERY, Ala., June 12. 
(ANP)— Ozie Powell and Roy 
Wright, two Scottsboro case de- 
fendants, were indicted by a Mor- 
gan county grand jury on charg- 
es of assault with intent to mur- 
der two officers, it was revealed 
here last week. At Decatur there 
was no official word forthcoming 
on the probable next develop- 
ment on the five-year old ca!:e. 

Indictment of the two boys 
last February on charges of at- 
tacking Sheriff J. C. Sandlin and 
Deputy Edgar Blalock, of Mor- 
gan county, with a knife was re- 
veEiled with the publication of 
the book: "Scottsboro— The Fire 
Brand of Communism." 

The book was written here by 
Files Crenshaw, r., Montgomery 
attorney, and Kenneth A. Miller, 
former newspaperman, and car- 
ried excerpts of testimony and a 
series of pictures depicting high- 
lights- in the case from the be- 

The Decatur Sheriff confirmed 
the book's statement and said in- 
dictment were not made public 
due to inflamed public sentiment 
regarding the alleged attack. 


(Negro "rresj Surciu) 

A jury in Department 42 of the 
Superior Court Judge William 
Tell Aggelar presiding, after lis- 
tening to short arguments of op- 
posing counsel, returned a ver- 
dict of "not guilty" in the case 
of People versus Simmie Statum.. 
Statum, a car salesman, was on 
trial facing three counts of mor- 
als violations. The man was ac- 
cused of wronging two minor 
girls last March 19. 

Atty. i^loyd C. Griffith, who 
represented the defendant, ar- 
gued one of the most brilliant 
cases in his legal career that oc- 
casioned even veteran hardened 
court attaches to remark con- 
cerning the young lawyer's clear 
imderstanding of ordinary vex- 
ious legal tangles. His masterful 
cross questioning of one of the 
prosecutions star witnesses 
brought out the revelation from 
the witness stand that she ac- 
cused the man of attacking her 
because of threats made one of 
the arresting officers. 

This paved the way for the ev- 
entual breaking down of the hith- 
erto airtight case the State had 
built up against the accused man. 
Both the girl who repudiated 
her accusations from the witness 
stand and another 14-year-old 
junior high school girl, had or- 
iginally accused the well known 
auto salesman of inviting them 
to an apartment and then after- 
wards attacking them. 

Statiun at the time fled the 
police. He subsequently returned 
to voluntary surrender to the au- 
thorities. Investigators Broady 
and Wheeler of the Newton di- 
vision police juvenile bureau, 
completed the investigations of 
the jailed man. The verdict of 
"not guilty " was returnable Fri- 
day, June 5. 

Eagle Celebrates 57th 
Anniveriary Sunday 

More than a half century ago, without pomp 
or heraldry, the California Eagle began its career 
as spokesman for the community of which it is a 

To serve the best interests of the people was 
the foundation upon which it built. That principle 
has been this institution's never-failing pilot over 
the troublous sea of years. 

In order to survive, the Eagle has matched its 
strength against the shifting sands of time, the 
adverse conditions of location — and won. During 
this period, at least 1 50 other kindred publications 
have come into being, flourished weakly for a hec- 
tic morning. But when the heat of the noonday 
struggle bore down, unequal to the battle, with 
monotonous regularity they have been swallowed 
up in the shuffle. 

Numerous obstacles have been encountered 
and overcome over the long and tedious journey. 
One of the greatest has been the heterogeneity of 
the Negro population in Los Angeles. Coming from 
various sections in quest of a fuller citizenship, 
products of- their respective environments, it has 
been difficult for them to become welded into a 
solidified force. 

To this fact the Eagle has called attention with 
continuous persistence. Opportunities and advan- 
tages for the group have been constantly pointed 
out. It has been this dominating spirit of the build- 
er that has contributed so much to the fruitful 
years of this journal. 

As the seasons come and go, victories won for 
community welfare, appreciation shown by hun- 
dreds of faithful supporters, give the prophetic 
words of the late Editor J.. B. Boss added signifi- 
cance: "We're on our way!" 

Just recently the plant at 1607 East 103rd 
street, and business office at 3612 Central avenue 
were moved into the commodious building at 38th 
and Central. One of the latest models of Mergen- 
thaler linotype machines 'was added to the already 
well-equipped mechanical department. A large lay- 
out room, private offices, and a convenient report- 
ers' room have increased the facilities to make the 
California Eagle one of the greatest publications 
of its kind in the world. 

To achieve this much desired goal, your undi- 
vided cooperation is needed. The record of the 
Eagle is a challenge to race pride, civic spirit and 
recognition of the material contributions made. 

Especially is this true of the recent lean years 
through which we nave passed. While hundreds of 
reputable businesses collapsed under the financial 
stress and strain of the times, the Eagle main- 
tained a comparatively large, well-paid force of 

"We're on our way!" to higher heights upon 
the strength of over o half century of championing 
the rights of the group furthest down, standing 
four-square for civic righteousness, and by always 
giving an attentive ear to the voice of the people.

Notwithstanding the member- 
ship drive last December, the 
Los Angeles Branch just com- 
pleted a very successful and ef- 
fective campadgn under the di- 
rection of Dean William Pickens, 
veteran director of branches for 
the National Association for the 
Advancement of Colored People. 

The results of this campaign 
show 500 new persons hfve join- 
ed the organization and more 
than $600.00 added to its treas- 
ury. With the recent campaign, 
the Los Angeles Branch, which 
is one of the largest branches of 
the organizatiOTi, has more than 
1200 active members. 

The final success of the cam- 
paign is directly the outgrowth 
of the high calibre of leaders and 
workers who responded gener- 
ously to the call of L. G. Robin- 

son, chairman of the member- 
ship committee. The honors go 
to Division A, under the leader- 
ship of Dr. H. C. Hudson, which 
secured 296 members and $319.50. 
Division lead by Mrs. M. B. Braz- 
ley, secured 225 members and 
$273.67. Outstanding in Division 
A was team No. I with George 
A. Beavers, Jr. as captain. This 
team brought in more member- 
ships and more money than any 
other team, securing 78 member- 
ships and $84.00. 

Special recognition, however, 
is given to Mr. L. G. Robinson 
for contributing the finest and 
most outstanding individual ef- 
fort, having secured the largest 
amount of money and member- 
ships of any individual, with 
Nathaniel George running a dose

• 'Negro Press Bureau) 
GWICAGO, 111., June 11— Ofay 
band leaders are beginning to 
despair of waiting for a Negro 
musician of sufficient pale skin 
to 'pass' as a Spamard or some- 
thing other than a Senegambian, 
in order to bolster up the music 
of their orchestras. Judging from 
the recent decision of Benny 
Goodman, the acknowledged peer 
of American 'swing' bands in 
taking on Teddy Wilson, stellar 
New York jazz pianist, the above 
suspicion rings quite true. 

Teddy Wilson hopped a rattler 
from New York last week to 
come here to join the Goodman 
orchestra in the Rhythm Club 
session in the Congress hotel. 
This, however, is not the first 
time that Wilson has worked 
with the band. Several months 
ago ha broke race precedent 
whqn he became a member of 
the Goodman trio — Benny o n 
clarinet, Teddy on piano and Gene 
Krupa on drums — o'er ether 
waves and on records. 

Goodman, is one of the fore- 
front popular ofay bandsmen. 
Negro musicians. He credits Flet- 
cher Henderson for all of his 
arrangements and calls the step 
papa of "Christopher Columbus 
a better swing leader than him-

Perry Howard Declares 
Negro to Support London 

By Staff Correspondent 

CLEVELAND, June U.— Rep- 
resentative from Mississippi, 
Perry Howard, speaking from 
the floor of the Convention hall 
in this city tonight, pledged the 
support of Negro Republicans to 
Governor Alfred Landon of 
Kansas as he loomed formida- 
bly as the Republican nominee 
for President of the United 

Speaking directly to the corn 
flower state executive, Howard 
declared that the Negro vote 
would lend its wholehearted 
support to Governor Landon in 
his fight to put G. O. P. back 
into the White House. 

Howard, the most important 

•f-Negro figure at the convention, 
was listed today on the new Re- 
publican national committee ap- 
proved late this evening with 
Mrs. Mary C. Booze, also color- 
ed, of Mississippi. They are the 
only two. Negroes in the com- 
mittee of 'l02. 

"Negro voters, who were be- 
ginning to feel themselves dis- 
possessed of their political 
homes.'' Howard is reported to 
have said, "with the nomination 
of Landon will return to try 
their fortunes again this year." 

The convention has been one 
cf the most colorful and honest- 
to-goodness factual recitals heard 
in a long time, veteran political

Find Library Employee 

Guilty in Morals Case 

(Negro Press Bureau") 

Gentry Ware. 37-year-old pub- 
lic library janitor and father of 
a nine-yekr-old girl, was convict- 
ed of criminal assauH upon a 13- 
year-old school girl last Friday, 
June 5, Ln department 40 of the 
Superior Court, in a trial with- 
out a jury before Judpe Fnink 
M. Smith. The child, who .nccus- 
ed the man of the crime, is a 
playmate of the man's daughter. 

■Ware, represented by two 
white lawyers from the firm of 
Desser and Leipert. denied that 
he had committed the crime and 
that a document purporting to be 
a confession from him. v.-as ob- 
tained thru trick and device. 

The defense lawyers subjected 
both the girl complaining wit- 
ness and Investigator Earl Broa- 
dy from the Newton division po- 
lice Juvenile Bureau, to a sear- 
ing cross examination, in their 
attempt to shake their testimony. 

Deputy District Attorney Whi- 
chello. after a bitter struggle, suc- 
ceeded in having the ofcnfession 
admitted as evidence, over the 
vociferous protestations of the 
defense attorneys. Ware accused 
Inv'estigators Broady and Wheel- 
er, who made the arrest, of em- 
ploying coercive methods in get- 
ting him to sign the confession. 

However, he failed to deny the 
truth of the confession. The tes- 
timony of the girl proved to be 
identical to that contained in the 
confession of Ware. 

Judge Smith took cognizance 
of the fact that the statements 
made by two different people 
and in wide and separated parts, 
were closely related to and iden- 
tified with the facts in the case 
as being sufficient to view them 
in the light of corroboration. 

Ware, who lived at 822 E. 32nd 

^ I- street, has been in the employ of 
the city for more than 12 years. 

Jail Man 
In Shooting 

Jeff Davis, 38, of 1144 E. 25th 
street, who- told "police he was a 
WPA watchman, was lodged at 
Newton Division bastile last 
Monday and booked on chara^ 
of suspicion of assault with a ' 
deadly weapon charge. The man 
admitted shooting Nathaniel Al- 
len, during a squabble. • 

Radio police officers Ross and 
Kelley, who answered a call to 
the 25th street address, found 
the wounded man and had him 
removed to Georgia Street re- 
ceiving hospital. Mrs. Rosie Rob- 
bins, wh oalso lives at the same 
address as the two men, was a 
witness to the shooting. 

The officers found Davis, who 
was pointed out as the suspect, 
a block away from the scene with 
the gun still in his hands. He 
admitted shooting Allen and was 
boked of the above charges. 


Bradie Gibson of 1124 E. 34th 
street, reported to desk officer 
Sid Hendricks at Newton police 
station early this week, that pass 
key burglars had entered his 
house and ransacked it. 

Gibson complained of the loss 
of clothing consisting' of a blue 
coat, a tuxedo and a shirt and tie. 
The man valued the stolen goods 
at $35.00.

"■J*HE Negro in Pictures" seems to be the subject on the 
■ tongue of every actor today and the smart thing to talk 
about at bridge parties and teas. It is true that a number of 
race actors are included in screen presentations, even more 
than the usual amount during eight years of talkies, but to ac- 
cept the opinion of some that he is a definite fixture in this 
particular business, from the point of offering characters that 
are a credit to Negro culture is still a point open for discussion 
and improvement. Paul Robeson has just completed his second 
film taken in the African background to 
round out a modem character of western 
civilization. Not like the other so-called "col- 
ored" pictures, but real down to earth stuff, 
that will throw a cigar and uhdistorted light 
upon the feelings of the average colored 
man. That is England's contribution. Now 
pray tell me what particular film that is 
completed or in the process of making in 
America that dares to present a modem 
thinking Negro, upon which you conid look 
forward to as a document of good will and 
progress throughout the world? "The Negro 
in Pictures" as a group is being photo- 
graphed but not studied. When he is ana- 
lyzed with a human understanding, accepted as heroes, and 
not always the villain and clown, we can safely say in America 
(the greatest motion picture producers on earth) that the Ne- 
gro is now in pictures. 

Bill Robinson and his wife will head for New York Sunday 
to be present at one of the greatest dramas of modem times. 
He will see our hero and every American's hero fight a gentle- 
man from Germany. If he is a Nazi then the drama is more 
intense, because you must have pure blood streams to be a 
Nazi. Mr. Louis' stream is pure enough to make him a hundred 
per cent American. And bjs victory wiU be an American Tio> 
iory over a nation that hates Jews. Wouldn't this stuff mike 
a fine punch for the movies? Oh, yeah, it will take 500,006 dol- 
lars of quarters and dimes collected by Negroes tern If egrees 
to produce it. And it is about time we did product one. 'We 
produced Joe Louis. A Negro mana^r,. Negro tndaer, N^r* 
money is all he had to start with, outside of faith in himsSf. 
"The Negro in Pictures" is fine talk. Do fMaethtaf ! Wzite ,

a kiddir^ matter for him to go 
about at night burglarizing chic-

Shades of the gi-eat Sherlock 
Holmes, Allen. Pinkertoh and the 
entire flock of Edgar Hoover's 
master sleuths, fell upon this 
city, early this week, when Cliff

of 10S7 E. Vernon, brought to an 
end a baffling case of money 
snatching covering a period of 
six months of intense super 

Last December 24, Minter re- 
ported to Newton police that a 
youth had entered his store and 
snatched a bag containing $65.00 
and made his get-a-way. .Since 
that time he told police he has 
sought the elusive youth. Once 
he had the boy identified as Wm. 
Neilson, 16, of 745 E. 47th St., 
cornered in his store. The youth 
escaped when he snatched a gun 
and threatened the man and his 

Investigators P e 1 1 i f ord and 
Stanley, of Newton Division 
Juvenile Bureau, called into the 
case early this week arrested the 
boy, after Minter employing su- 
per sleuth methods had trailed 
him to his house. He was booked 
on theft charges.

Cfoim Defeat Of Ethiopia 
Arouses World's Blacks 

LONDON, June 12. (ANP) — A warning that white civilization 
is endangered by an army of 500,000,000 blacks aroused because 
Italy conquered Ethiopia and marched her native soldiers to the 
gates of Addis Ababa is contained in a feature article by Denis Sul- 
livan ■ given a prominent display in a recent edition of the na- 

tionally popular "Everybody's 
Says the article: 

"We used to talk and write a 
lot of the Yellow Peril. Today 
' the most imminent peril is the 
Black one. All over the world 
millions of blacks are beginning 
to think in terms of domination 
by numbers. The great question 
is: Why should we be ruled and 
browbeaten by a mere handful of 

"And one day that terrible 
question must be answered. 

"I once heard an African 
black say: You came to us with 
a Bible in xme band and a re- 
volver in the other. If we accept- 
ed the Bible, you call it peaceful 
ocdpation and colonization. If we 
did not and you had recourse to 
the revolver, you called in con- 
quest.Bnt today we understand 
both the Bible and the revolver! 
Drawing Together 

"There it is. Gradually, but 
surely, the black races are draw- 
ing together in the common bond 
of a new enlightenment, and 
from every corner of the world 
comes that awful: Why?— should 
we be the under-dogs? 

"Mussolini's victory may cost 
the white man dear. Millions of 
blacks are now sympathising 
with the Abyssinians— millions 
more are glowing with pride that 
other blacks, the Askaris. have 
proved equal in military bravery 
and skill to the white troop.~ 
which marched behind them. 

"Will all these blacks one day 
march together? If so, the earth 
■\*ill tremble to the ponderous 
thud of the greatest army the 
world has ever known. 

"America employed Negro 
troops in the Spanish-American 
war. They strutted the earth. Ne- 
groes in uniform considered 
themselves superior to white civi- 
lians, and, insolently drunk with 
the sense of power, pushed them 
off the pavement. America took 
heed, and the lot of the Negro 
in the United States has been 
none too comfortable these past 
Learning Every Day 

"But there are 10,000.000 of 
them over there. They are going 
to American universities, they 
are learning every day all about 
the very thmgs which have been 
a peculiar knowledge or peculiar 
privilege of the whites. They are 
learning how one day to oust the 
the while from his proud posi- 

"When Jack Johnson wore the 
heavyweight crown of boxing 
there were racial riots all over 
America. After one of his vic- 
tories, so frenzied were the 
scenes that several murders were 
committed. Harlem--New York's 
East End— goes mad over Joe 
Louis. When they see one of their 
kind beating the white men at 
white men's pursuits, the Ne- 
groes hail him as a champion of 
their woes and their hopes. A de- 
liverer. A leader in the black 
conquest on which they brood 
and dream. 

"The white man's magic is ex- 
ploded. That is the secret of 
black rebellion. The native has 
called our bluff, learnt to handle 
our weapons, knows what our 
strength rests on. There is no 
more mystery about the whites. 

"Million,^; of pounds have been 
spent without any hope of ma- 
terial orofit on soreading culture 
and health among native peoples, 
in tne nope that one day the 
black and other colored races 
within our Empire might be able 
to enjoy the same status a^ 
Canadians and Australians. But 
this magnificent attempt is 
fraught with a terrible risk. 

"Are we moulding a weapon 
for our own overthrow? Is our 
admirable m.ission to culminate 
in world-wide anarchy? 

"We are handling dynamite. In 
Am.erica and Africa there are 
210,000.000 Negroes. The peoples 
of India number 352,000.000. 
These will not combine, but their 
separate threats to the white man 
can bring chaos to the world. 

"Their successes increase daily. 
Their confidence grows. The 
taste of power intoxicates them. 
One day they may unite to seize 
dominion over the worldl" 


Charges of "insurrection" were 
today lodged against 18 Negro 
and white workers arrested in 
a police raid on a workers' meet- 
ing in a private home in Atlanta, 
Ga., last Saturday. The "insur- 
rection" law, dating back to pre- 
Civ'ii War days, LMrries a ueai'ii 
sentence and is the same law un- 
der which Angelo Herndon was 
sentenced to 18-20 years on the 
chain gang after the jury recom- 
mended "mercy". 

Police said they found a copy 
of The Southern Worker, publica- 
tion of the Communist Party in 
the South, and parts of the Ful- 
ton Bag Worker, shop paper in 
the Fulton B^ Mills, at the 
meeting. It is apparently upon 
possession of this material that 
the police plan to base their 
charges. The literature in ques- 
tion is legal and passes freely 
through the United States mails. 

The law was declared uncon- 
stitutional by Judge Hugh M. 
Dorsey's decision freeing Hern- 
don and nullifying the law un- 
der which he was convicted w'as 
appealed by the State to the 
Georgia S.upreme Court which 
has not yet handed down a de- 
cision. The death sentence is pro- 
vided under this slave insurrec- 
tion law for anyone "bringing, 
introducing or circulating within 
the State any printed or written 
paper, pamphlet, or circular for 
the purpose of exciting insurrec- 
tion revolt, conspiracy or resis- 
tance on the part of slaves, Ne- 
groes or free persons of color." 

Girl Who Narrowly Escaped 
Lynching Makes Confession 

By Staff Correspondent 

ALTUS. Okla., June 12 (Special)— The inside facts of the sor- 
did story in which Olivia Garvin, 19-year-old school girl narrowly 
escaped lynching at the hands of a mob led by the widow of S. 
E. Harlan, white WPA worker, whom Olivia shot and killed at a 
rendezvous last week was revealed this week with a confession 

from the e::i who awaits trial or 
pocsible lynching in a jail at 
Hobart, twenty-five miles from 

Arrested for the murder of 
Harlan on a tip from an un- 
known source, the girl narrowly 
escaped lynching last week and 
is being; heavily guarded by 
State Militia at Hobart. As lurid 
stories are passed from mouth to 
mouth, parental reins on girls 
and boys in these little towns 
are tightened and a grim look 
settles about the lips of these 
poverty stricken Negroes who 
live without adequate protection 
from vice on the edge of the 
city's "unofficial" red light dis- 

Just last year graduated from 
high school the Garvin girl was 
reputed to .be a "nice" girl and 
respected in the community in 
which she lives. Her confession 
of this intended moral offense 
—with th^ suggestion of others 
past shocked her friends and has 
divertedthe eye of suspicion to 
other youth in the town. 

The Garvin girl admits that she 
made a date with Harlan and that 
he followed her to the "usual 

rendezvous" an unlighted depot 
waiting room for Negroes recog- 
nized as a safe meeting place for 
white men and Negro women 

The quarrel occurred when 
Harlan realizing that he had the 
girl in a deserted spot refused to 
pay her for the intended immoral 
pr-t. which never took place.. 
When the girl protested, a strug- 
gle ensued and Olivia shot the 
man. The gun was not explained 
either by the dead man's wife or 
the young woman. 

An attempt w^as made by the 
county attorney Weldon Harris 
to file hi-jackirig charges 
against Olivia Garvin but upon 
the testimony of Mrs. Harlan 
that husband left home with 
$30 and that amount was found 
on his body, the possibility was 

Questioned about her daugh- 
ter's character, Mrs. Garvin said 
that Olivia has always been of 
a highly nervous type and sub- 
ject to spells. In common with 
the daughters of other families 
in the vicmitv. the eirl had un- 
limited freedom after working

Dad Loves Statistics 
Here are a few statistics about 
one of the ingredients used In many 
recipes — statistics that will appeal 
to dad. This country's yearly milk 
supply would make a river 40 feet 
wide and ty% feet deep — from New 
York to San Francisco. The 1934' 
cash Jncome from milk and cream 
recei's^fd by farmers was one 
billion, one hundred and fourteen 
million dollars — about twice the In- 
come from hogs or cotton and 
almost six times that from wheat. 
Modem distributing methods make 
it possible to handle this enormous 
production »o that your morning 
milk Is always awaiting you, and 
the early morning walk for milk Is 
as obsolete as sideburns. Those 
dads who are milkmen are entitled 
to a ip«€ial word of praise today.

ATLANTA, Ga., June 12— Ac- 
cording to information i--- '■re- 
leased by J. H. McGrew, Execu- 
tive Secretary oi uic ^^ 

YMCA, the former all-time na- 
tion-wide record of $4,242.00 held 
for years by the Senate Avenue 
Branch Street YMCA in Indian- 
apolis, Indiana was shattered to 
smithereens by the Butler St. 
YMCA campaign just closed. The 
1,331 members and $5,256.00 in 
cash secured was only part of the 
achievement giving the Gate 
City first place in the nation for 
Membership Campaign results. 

Continuing, Mr. McGrew stat- 
ed that "A significant feature 
about the effort was the high al- 
titude reached in what Bob 
DeFrantz, National Campaign Di- 
rector, terms 'Spizzerinktum 

It has been a long time since 
Atlanta citizens have made such 
awholehearted response to a n y 
city-wide effort. L. D. Milton, lo- 
cal banker and partner in the 
successful drug firni of Yates and

winning whirlwind machine com- 
posed of more than sixty leading 
citizens representing practically

Without abiding faith, this old 
world would not be a very en- 
joyable place in which to live. 

Neighbors' in any community 
enjoy a larger measure of hap- 
piness by dis- 
playing a spirit 
of faith and co- 
operation. If we 
are blessed with 
an unusual 
amount of coop- 
erative spirit as 
a race, our mer- 
chants, profes- 
sional, business 
men and women 

and residents, 

will always be 

willing to backs. P. Johnson 

any project that will help to 

promote the goodwill or improve 

the lot of their fellow humap 


We plan for the future and 
then have faith in our ability jto 
carry out those ararngements. 
Faith in ourselves is the one out- 
standing quality which we must 
possess to accomplish our goal in 
life, it is the one common attrib- 
ute all successful men and wom- 
en seem to have. 

Faith in the fact that right will 
always prevail. Sometimes how* 
ever it does seem without serious 
thought, that we would advance 
just a little faster if we took the 
shorter route, but without that 
abiding faith in the principle of 
honesty, we would be like an 
aeroplane without a pilot. 

So may we develop within the 
Heart, Faith in our God, Faith 
in our Country, Faith in our fel- 
lowmen, and Faith in ourselves. 

Watch the next issue.

alize that the taxpayers are no

All checks for subscriptions must be made pay- 
able to the CALIFORNIA EAGLE. 

IDELL A. BATEMAN, Contest Mgr. 


Because of the requests being made for 
public subscriptions to a scholarship fund— it 
was necessary that the utmost care should 
be taken in the selection of eligibles. The 
California Eagle could not be responsible for 
the whole task. A process of elimination, 
wherein the friends of the students should 
sit in judgment of their merits, was chosen. 
If the student cou|d not find ten friends who 
thought them worthy of support in the effort 
to attain a scholarship— then automatically 
they were disqualified. 

The stkidents listed with the names of 

friends supporting them are the fortunote 

ones. It is now up to the friends to justify 

their faith in the student they are helping by 

^putting him or her oyer the top. 


Even if you don't know the students— 
tnoke it a moral obligotion to do something 
to help in this effort to establish a yearly 
^holorship fund for worthy students. If you 
ire not o subscriber-if you have a friend 
jriiot is not a subscriber to the California 
fogie, send in the subscriptions and hove

JACKSON'. Wiss.. June 12. (A 
NP) — "The safest Negro leader 
in Mississippi was the brand ap-i 
phed to the Rev. J. M. William- 
son, 77 year old pastor in this 
City by the Jackson Daily News 
as result of an interview with the 
editor in which the minister de- 
clared that Negro education 
should stop at the eighth grade. 

"For many years I taught 
school", the preacher allegedly 
told the white editor of the lo- 
cal daily. "In fact. I devoted 50 
years of my life to that work. 
The present sj'stem of public 
schools for Negroes is .ill wrong. 
We are trj'ing to teach them too 
high--carrying them further than 
they are able to go. The cur- 
riculSm for Negro schools should 
not go above the eighth grade. It 
should be made practical from 
the beginning--teach boys and 
girls how to earn their living 
with their hands." 

"That's the calm judgment of 
a Negro leader wfeo has worked 
unceasingly for the betterment of 
his race.'i said the Daily News 
editorial. "In earlier days Wil- 
liam.son was a well-to-do Negro. 
He m.ade a lot of m.oney in real 
estate at Mound Bayou when 
that colony was founded. -At one 
time he was worth probably 
S75.000. Today he is practically 
penniless and says he is far hap- 
pier than when he had plenty of 
m.oney. Just a venerable old Ne- 
gro going a'oout doing good his own folks.''

'tost Dioys Of Ponipeii' Fire^ ^ 
Show to Start Next Monday 

Tinted walls of a doomed marble city, done in elaborate scen- 
ery, soon will begin rising on the floor of the Los Angeles Coliseum. 
Tlie setting will be for "Last Days of Pompeii", thrilling fire show, 
wiiich will run for ten nights, except Sunday, starting Monday, June 
Looming to a dizzy height be- safety or seemingly will be bur- 

hind the Pompeiian outlay, will 
be a huge replica of Mount 'Ve- 
suvius, programmed to stage an 
eruption of "^lame and lava at 
the appropriate moment of the 
dramatic action. f 

When the mountain rumbles 
and flames leap heavenward, it 
declared an awesome spectacle 
will be attained. Temples of hea- 
then gods, esquisitely chiselled 
statuary, the homes of patrians, 
the amphitheater and other struc- 
tures of the old Roman city will 
topple in ruins. 

Throughout, the story, penned 
years ago by Lord Edward Bul- 
wer-Lytton, will be followed 
faithfully by a cast of hundreds 
of players. Roman senators, pa- 
tricians, slaves and gladiators 
will mingle in a wild flight for 

ied in the ruins, when the mount- 

Direction of the show will be 
by Charles H. Duffield, noted 
Chicago producer, engaged by the 
Federated Church Brotherhood of 
California. Theodore Kosloff wil 
direct ballets of bacchantees and 
slaves, while Don Philippini will 
have charge of music. 

Funds from the spectacle will 
be devoted to a most worthy 
purpose, announcements say. Th« 
Church Brotherhood plans estab- 
lishment of a large mountain va- 
cation camp, where thousands of 
needy boys will be conducted 
each summer for an outing in the 
hills. At this camp, faith in re- 
ligion and principalities of Ameri- 
can patriotism will be inculcated 
in their youthful minds.

Stepin Fetchit's Natal Day 
Proves to be Significant 

(Negro Press Bureau) 

Saturday, May 30. Different calendars in different nations and 
other climes, posted as many different occasions for the observance 
and celebration o fthat date. The Christian world, observed it as 
a fitting date for the observance with appropriate preparations, of 
the 'Vigil of Pentecost. 

America, in addition to the 
Pentecostal observances, had, oc- 
casion to honor the date in set- 
ting aside special exercises for 
the memory of its fighting dead. 
California went at least a half a 
step farther and initiated the 
date with appropriate legislation 
as Decoration Day. 

,But, that s not wnat this story 
is all abouti Stepin F e t c h i t, 
screenland's stellar comic under 
the 200th Century-Fox banner, 
had occasion to note the signifi- 
cance of all these world happen- 


The ^mily of the late George 
Long wish to express their deep 
appreciation for the many kind- 
nesses shown during the illness 
of our beloved husband and fa- 
ther, and in our dark hour of 

Especially do we thank Revs. 
G. B. Washington . and Elder J. 
Saunders for their words of com- 
fort; Miss Catherine Moten for 
the jheautiful solo, and the Rob- 
ertsMortuary for their consoling 
and" dignified services.

' (Negro Press Bureau) 
"Noah" was presented to an 
initial audience last Tuesday 
night at the Mayan theatre. The 
audience was large and an ap- 
preciative one. This latest offer- 
ed here by the Federal Theatres 
Projects is authored by Andre 
Obey, the original in French. 
The English text offered current- 
ly at the Mayan is by Arthur 
Wilmurt. The direction is handl- 
ed by Jerome Coray. 

Jess Lee Brooks, the star of 
the play who essays the title role 
tum.<; !- ? splendid performance. 
He. Ck^ Desmond, who plays the 
wife of -Noah"': Onest Conley, 
who plavs "Ham": and Arthur 
Ray. who turns in a remarkable 
bit of acting at a most opportune 
time, were each signaled for in- 
dividual applause from the large 

lairuout the five acts of the 
play, the figure of the strange 
old man of God, "Noah", com- 
mands the stage and grips the 
attention of the audience. The 
plav. although suggestive of 
sonie by-religious tear jerking 
magnitude, is skillfully guided 
past these sombre parts by 
smoothly sketched bits of come- 
dy added to spurt the thing along 
jiist when it begins to lag. 

There was no mistaking the 
fact that the premiere showing 
of "Noah'' was spotty. Some of 
the players experienced difficul- 
ties. However, this was to be ex- 
pected. Much could be blamed 
on the poorlv translated dialog- 
ue. It is true that the dialogue 
was translated into English. But. 
it was likewise evident that it 
should have been further trans- 
lated into a lower Negro dialect. 
Most of the performers' difficul- 
ties lay in the direction of faulty 
dialogue and bad situations. 

The mam cast. Noah. Japhet, 
Shem. Ham, Mama, Ada, Sella, 
Naomi and A Man, was difficult 
of casting. Especially was this 
true and noticeable in casting 
the full grown young men and 
women to portray the roles of 
innocent children of the Noahs. 
One young lady in particular was 
considerably annoying in her 
strained efforts to deceive the 
audience to imagine that she 
was coy. And, thmk what that 
would hi*ve meant with a num- i 
ber of actors scampering about I 
the ark poorly garbed as animals. I 

"Noah." although it doesn't 
give the wide latitude for signal 
starring opportunities to Brooks 
that "Black Emoire" offered, is 
undoubtedly of far greater com- 
mercial valuation than the lat- 
ter. Nor are the stage trappings 
as elaborate. The play gets off 
to a fair start in the first act with 
Brooks dominating the stage in 
a dialogue pantomine bit of act- 
ing conversing with Jehovah. It 
begins to sag a bit in the second 
stanza but afterward:, at Arthur 
Ray's cue, picks up again. The 
actors from then on have control 
of the situation and manage to 
turn in a mighty fine perform- 

A mighty fine group of many 
local celebrities of the stage and 
screen were on hand at the ini- 
tial performance to spur the ac- 
tors on. Their presence- there 
can, without exaggeration, be 
credited to the draw of Jess Lee 
Brooks, whose second starring 
role of "Noah" they were there 
to view. Sharing honors with 
Brooks is the entire cast. Eddie 
Jones was applauded as the spot- 
light played upon his head as he 
directed a chorus of 30 splendid 
voices. 'Vera Morris was guitar

ular prices prevailing at the

The play is unique in that it is 
one of the very few comedies 
written by a Negro playwright. 
During its run in March Cleve- 
land -critics praised its large cast 
of 50 persons as contributing one 
of the best performances in the 
history of "The Gilpin Players, 
now finishing their 15th season. 

Festus Fitzhugh as Little Ham 
and Irene Reese in what Mc- 
Dermott of the Cleveland Plain 

Dealer called a "vivid and tangy

Bill Thomas injured in 
warmup for class 'B' 

(Negro Press Boreaa) 

With a huge crowd on hand, 
the stage was perfectly set Wed- 
nesday night for the opening 
dashes of the sepia driven midget 
speed burners to get under way 
at the White Sox Park speedway. 
The greatly improved track was 
hard and fast for the resump- 
tion of the roaring sports. One 
mishap occuring while cars were 
tuning up for the start of the 
Class B main event marred the 
evinmg's entertainment. Bill 
Thomas driving car No. 58 crash- 
ed and overturned. He was 
rushed to the Receiving hospital. 

Mouse Fuller, one of the acea 
among a field of danng drivers, 
roared to victory in the mam 
event, a 20 lap race that was the 
feature classic. The race got un- 
der way with the dash after the 
Bill Robinson Helmet, followed 
:n order "by the Clarence Muse 
Trophy grind. Bud Anderson 
driving car i78> turned in the 
fastest time of 1.32 for five laps. 
Waldo Cook, one of the favorites 
at the track who was scheduled 
to race Chalky Lee Wright, 
chauffeur to Mae West, the ac- 
tress, in a m^atch race for the Mae 
West prize, cracked up and the 
event was postponed. 

Mel Layton. continues popular 
with the speedway crowds despite 
his inability to snatch a win dur- 
ing the evenmg. New fapes ap- 
pearing on the track, may prove 
excellent crowd pleasers, r^ptably 
Al Williams (53>, N. Templeton, 
<29i: Willie Scott. l54'; and Bus- 
ter Harrison, i32). Their perfor- 
mances were splendid. .\1 Wil- 
liams '53> proved the hard luck 
hero of the evening iwith the 
e.xception of the injured Bill 
Thomas I when he led the field of 
seven winners for 11 of the.- 20 
laps with a leadway of almost a 
half a lap, to tnen have his 
m.ount turn around and stall put- 
ting him out of the race. Mouse 
Fuller came up from fourth posi- 
tion to finally nose out Wiiiie 
Scott and cop the race. 

Dr. Jack Smitherman. track 
physician, treated the injured 
Thomas at the track. He reported 
the driver suffered three nrussir.g 
teeth, chest hurts and su.Tered 
head bruises and general shock. 
His injuries are not ser;ru5. The

CHIC.\GO. Jur.e 12— Dispite 
vociferous protestations from the 
press of the race led by you fel- 
uows out there on the Eag'e. the 
f.eldday featuring Negro athletes 
for the purpose of raising money 
to send said athletes to Germany 
as members of the American 
Olympic team was heid last Sun- 
cay afternoon on Stagg Field a', 
the Univer?i':y of Chicago. 

Negro society was very much 
in evidence a.mong the 3000 spec- 
tators. for the event were 
changed and it was held under 
the co-sponsorship of the Olde 
Tvmers club backed bv the Cen- 
tral A. A. U. 

Tnere are certain aspects of 
the meet that were rather hard 
to take but since it happened and 
IS now over, I suppose we might 
as well bury our grudges and 
pass on ' to the very per- 
formances by the participants. 

Central A. A. U. officials got 
around the, event that could have 
been the ®(ture race of the 
track season by ignoring the op- 
portunity to let Jesse C^.vens, 
Ralph Metcalfe and Ben Johnson 
all of whom were very much in 
evidence, compete against each 
other in the 100 meters. 

Consequently the high jump 
involving string beans Corny 
Johnson, Dave .Albritton. Gilbert 
Cruter, Ed. Burke, Clay ChUm, 
Melvm Walker was the high spot 
of the day. Johnson and .A.lbrit- 
ton tied for first at 6 feet, SH 
inches. Johnson m three breath- 
taking tries missed the worlds 
record height of 6 feet gW. 

Featiire race of the day was 
the 440 yard relay with Ben 
Johnson running first, Johnnie 
Brooks, former Chicago U. star, 
second. Owens, third, and Met- 
calfe running anchor. They turn- 
ed a time of 41.4. 


One of the young Negro men 
who will stand out during the 
coming Joe Louis-Max Schmel- 
ing fight scheduled for the Yan-

pictured above. Mr. Roberts hails 
from sunny California and is the 
sponsor of the huge Sportsman's 
Ball slated for the Renaissance 
Casino on Wednesday night, 
June 17. which is one night be- 
fore the big boxing bout between 
Louis and Schmeimg. H^ wrll

Many a team with sure fire

I E.xclusi ve I — C r o w d i n g pre- 
Sohrr.ehng vs. Louis ballyhoo off 
the sport pages of the Eastern 
dailies is the dual track meet to 
take place in this city tom.orrow 
between the University of South- 
ern California and Ohio State. 
The Southern California team ar- 
rived here yesterday evenmg aft- 
er a stopover in Ch.cago to work 
out at S'tagg Field. .As this paper 
comes off the press, they will be 
working out here preparatory to 
a rest for tomorrow's fracas. 

MuciT rem.iniscing is going the 
rounds in anticipation of the out- 
come of tomorrow's meet. .A 
year ago S. C. trounced the 
Buckeyes 9-6 in a m.eet that only 
scored first places, with the re- 
dpubtable Jesse Owens scoring 
frtuT of the Buckeye's six first 

This year, however, scoring 
will take the regular form, but 
the West coast lads are still tout- 
ed to take the high scoring hon- 
ors. Southern C a 1 i f o r ma will 
match its numbers against this 
University's briiliamce and will 
lindoubtedly come out victorious. 

Three colored boys are the 
hope of Larry Snyder, Ohio 
mentor, Jesse Owens, David Al- 
britton and MeKln Walker. De- 
spite four first' places and a con- 
sequence 20 points from Owens, 
one first and a second place in 
the 880 and mile and 7 points 
from Chuck Beetham, and a 
dual between Walker and Albrit- 
ton that will result in a first and 
second place for the lads and a 
consequent 8 points. Dean Crom- 
well's boys with their relay team, 
their sure place winners and 
their field men wUl come out in 
another win.

tioned it to us that the contro- 
versy started in this paper at all. 
It seems that we were led to 
believe that there is only one 
hotel in Fresno and that Nagroes 
were extended every courtesy at 
that one, attested to further by 
the fact that Corny Johnson, Wil- 
lie Ashford, and Ted Hogan 
stayed at it. According to Berke- 
ley however there are three 
hotels in the Northern coUege 
town and he and Corny Johnson 
were refused admission to the 
most exclusive of the three.

First AME Brotherhood Notes 

The Brotherhood met in regu- 
lar weekly meeting last Thurs- 
day night with Brother P. L. 
Johnson as host. Only ? faith- 
ful few were present but our 
president, Brother G. W. Thomp- 
son, was grateful for these few 
and 'is happy to be able to re- 
port to our pastor when he re- 
turns that the Brothei;hood has 
consistently carried on during 
his absence. It is quite probable 
that a number of the brothers 
missed meeting last week be- 
cause Brother Johnson's wife 
was away from the city and the 
brothers feared they would not 
get the good feed we have be- 
come acctistomed to at the John- 
son home. 

It is encouraging to note that 
the Brotherhood is going for- 
ward in spite of the fact that one 
brother advertises that we are 
dead and another insists that we 
are so reactionary and non-pro- 
gressive that we are standing in 
our own light. Itf'will be a glori- 
ous day when these two brothers 
turn their searching scrutiny up- 
on themselves and discover that 
the trouble is not with the Bro- 
therhood but lies within them- 
selves. Walter L. McDonald, re-

-The pastor. Rev. Brown, chose 
for his subject at 11 a. m., "The 
Supreme and Sacrificial Surren- 
der " from the text, "Not my will 
but thine be done". Rev, Brown 
was at his best as he portrayed 
most interestingly his subject 
with such a depth of meaning. 
The choir was directed by Mrs. 
Madge Wilkins. diiector-organist. 

BYPU at 4:00 p. m. had excep- 
tionally well taught lessons in

At 5:30 communion services 
'were held at which time Rev. 
Brown preached on the subject, 
"The Christian Covenant". 

A large number partook of the 
Lord's Supper. The day's ser- 
vices were great. 

The Business and Professional 
Men and Women's week, May 27-

Wallace. 1707 West Fourth St.. 
was hostess. T'ae club was hon- 
ored by having for its guest. 
Mrs. Betty Hill, the stale organ-

Petty; Rev. M. L. Brinson, pas-

Mrs. Hill was tlie chief speak- 
er of the afternoon. Each word 
was interesting and pave a clear 
view of the Woman's Political 
Study club to all hearers. 

The study club has very re- 
cently been organized in Orange 
county, and has aroused the in- 
terest of m.any of tJir ladies. 
Each week wc receive f.n appli- 
cation for a new member. As 
time goes on wc hope the Wo- 
man's Political Study club will 
prove the advantage of having 
such an organization in the com- 
munity. We heartily invite the 
public to visit the meetings. Mrs. 
Vassar Lee Burks is president, 
and Mrs. Ruby Berkley Good- 
win, secretary. 


Miss Beatrice Cook, prominent 
young society favorite of the 
younger set. of Duarte, Monrovia, 
and Los Angeles, who very re- 
cently lost her very dear mother, 
and who is now stopping with 
her grand-mother, Mrs. M. J. 
Davis of Duarte, Calif., will be 
leaving Saturday. June 13lh in 
company with Rev. and Mrs. J. 
A. Davis for Kansas City, Kan., 
as a delegate to the National B. 
Y. P. U. and Sunday School Con- 
gress, representing the Second 
Baptist Church, of which she has 

been a very faithful member. 

This is the first time Miss Cook 
has been such a distance from 
home. Born in California, she 
graduated from the grammar 
schools of Duarte and the Union 
high scho(jl of Monrovia. When Cook- returns, she hopes to 
continue her education in pre- 
paration for Social Welfare work. 

Miss Cook IS of a very sweet 
disposition and is well loved by 
all with whom she comes in con- 
tact. She takes this medium of 
bidding her multitude of friends 
everywhere good bye. 

Miss Cook will be gone for 
possibly four or five weeks. W? 
shall all pray for her safe re-

Boy Scout Troop No. 25, un- 
der the supervision of Scout Mas- 
ter, Curtis Turner made an ad- 
mirable showing last Saturday 
and Sunday when they made 
their appearance at the Regional 
Camporal, held at Camp Irving, 
with eight scouts in the patrol 
being the only colored troop in 
a group of 7400 Scouts, for 
which they received the rating of 
"B" average and on a former oc- 
casion they were rated as "A" 
I which entitled them to enter 
I Southern California Camporal. 
The "A" average was awarded 
them at the Council Corporal, 
held atCrystal Lake, May 2 and 
3. Young Turner has worked 
against some most unbelievable 
odds to accomplish what he has 
in keeping Troop No. 25 alive 
and to have been instrumental in 
building the membership up to 
30. Turner is one of Pasadena's 
finest young men; is married and 
has three lovely children who to- 
gether with their mother are at 
present in Imperial Valley where 
she has gone to convalesce as a 
result of an operation. 
Dinner Party 

Mrs. Mabel Brooks was hostess 
to a beautifully appointed dinner 
party Sunday night in her tastily 
arranged home on Pepper street 
where a bevy of her friends gath- 
ered honoring Mesdames Cather- 
ine Dixon and Dorothy Taylor of 
Chicago. Those who weie '.lappy 
recipients of bids were Mesdames 
Garner, Wood.";, .Slater. Giant, Le- 
Grande. Batiste. Blodgett. Misses 
Eunice and Ruby McKnight. 
Pleasurable pastimes were much 
in evidence. 

Miss Jerry Solomon, who some 
weeks ago suffered injury jn an 
auto accident which for some 
lime was thought to be serious is 
recovering rapidly and will soon 
be out again. Fine for Jerry as 
she thought she would nof be 
able to attend the graduation ex- 
ercises of which she is a part. 
Jerry is the beautiful neice of 
Mrs. Cirgie Corrj'.

Negro veterans especially should heed the timely 
advice offered by the Federal Housing Administra- 
tion, 756 S. Spring street. The last hired and the first 
fired, the Negro above all should profit by the bitter 
experience through which he is now passing, and 
cease to spend his money foolishly. He has been de- 
nied on even break in the distribution of lobor on 
federal projects, and when assigned to work is in- 
variably given the most grueling task. With this go- 
ing on at this moment he should heed the advice of 
the FHA: 'Think of your home first." 

"Over two billion dollars will be distributed by the 
United States Treasury after June 15 to over three 
and one-half million veterans of the World War," 
according'to F. W. Marlow, District Director of Fed- 
eral Housing Administration for Southern California. 
'The President of the United States, the Secretary of 
the Treasury, the Administrator of Veteran Affairs, 
ond the National Commander of all three major 
veteran organizations hove approved of the program 
of the Fwierol Housing Administration, namely: 
'Keep your bonds if you can, but if you cosh them, 
think of your home first.' " 

The average bonus payment will constitute the 
required 20 per cent down payment, which coupled 
with a Federal Housing Administration insured loon 
of 80 per cent will solve the housing problem of thou- 
sands of veterans. 

Many veterans in Los Angeles will benefit 
through distribution of these bonus bonds, and we 
hope that those who do not own homes will let the 
automobile salesman wait until he can secure a place

Even the nome of Gpv. Merriom hos been linked 
with the scheme headed by gamblers and politicions, 
to raise a $1,500,0(X> slush fund to get the salaries 
of nr>embers of the state board of equallxotion raised, 
and put over.o meosure tfiot would hot only keep

and her husband, Hon. t P. Werner, fonmer city at-

gong out to "get" them by any means fair or foul. 
We have had business relations with the Werners — 
worked with them in politics, and always found them 
obsolutely fair and honorable. We hope and believe 
that when the smoke clears away, the Werners will 
as usual come out with clean hands. By this we don't 
mean to imply that graft has not been committed for 
wherever liquor is involved groft and other infringe- 
ments of low always flourish, the control of which oft- 
times leads to murder.

fully, doubtless the stench from that direction would- 
n't be thot of rcses. 

der Negroes ot twenty-five hundred per. 

What is needed, my dear lady, is a federal low 
against mob murder,^ and when this is done, mob 
ridden Dixie wilt coll a holt on the wholesale slaugh- 
ter of Negroes. 

Her ardor somewhat cooled toward trying such 
coses against Negroes in state courts. Miss Bromley, 
with note akin to sadness opines: 

"It's hard to see how any jury, federal or state, 
could hove denied the suit for damages brought 
against the sheriff by the boy's parents. But so is it 
hard to see how successive juries in the Scottsboro 
case could hove sentenced to death five boys for on 
attack on two girls of t/ie road, one of whom denies 
that they were attacked." 


According to o bulletin just received Los Angeles 
county branches and offiliates of the California 
State Employment Service 8,764 people were on self- 
supporting jobs during May, according to Roy S. 
Stockton, chief of the service, who has just returned 
from on official trip to Washington. 

'This shows a 20.3 per cent increase over the 
placements for April," Stockton said, "And does not 
count security wage placements on relief projects, 
which totaled 2462, for the county." 

Despite the above inspiring figures offered by 
Mr. Stockton, stories of discrimination in employ- 
ment continue to reach our ears. A check will be 
made on this statement as to whether the Negro was 
given a just and equitable share of this employment. 

These alluring figures must be taken with a groin 
of salt, OS it ofttimes is a means employed at this 
time by Democratic politicians to put across political 
propaganda. If's a bold attempt to convince the peo- 
pje that recovery is a stern reality, but to a man with 
on empty stomach, it won't down. 

Health and Progress . 


Writing in the New York World Telegram under 
the caption "Down with Violence," Dorothy Dunbar 
Bromley seems enthused and with "there is hope for 
justice," says: 

The $2,500 judgment that has been awarded by 
o federol jury in Louisiana to the parents of a Negro 
boy lynched three years, ago won't bring bock their 
son, but it will at least give them the feeling that 
white men ore capable of putting justice before roce 
prejudice." ^' 

Dorothy evidently overlooked that fact the white 
sheriff against wnom the judgment was assessed was 
tried by a federal jury. The sheriff was found guilty 
of failure to protect his prisoners from death at the 
honds^of men selected by him to uphold the low. No 
orrest or even o charge was hinted against the depu- 
ties for tf>e murder of the youth, who were known to 
the sheriff for they were members of his staff. Miss 
Bromley says "no federal low would be needed if .the 
Southern States would confess their own sins," a 
thing thqf will hoppen In Dixie when the fishworm 
swallows the whole and grasshoppers knit woolen sox. 
This cose never would have reached the federal court 
hod not another man confessed committlr^ the 
crime v^ich exposed the horrible mistake, but even 
ot that the murderers of 16-year-old Fred Moore, who 
ore' known to state and city officials, room the streets 
unpunished In search of other block victims. 

Had the sheriff been tried in the state courts of 
Louisiana, it is impossible to draw o jury who would 
hove rendered- a judgmeht against him. 

As the cose noyf^stonds, we doubt very seriously 
that the erring sheriff will sper>d three cents of his 
own cash to satisfy the $2,500, but instead the. hill- 
billies. Block Legion and Ku Ktux Klon will gladly

(What foods to eat to fet tkem) 

This is the fourth article on 
the popular and healthful topic 
of vitamins C, D. and E. 

Viosterol is a trade name for 
irradiated ergoslerol. The most 
potent source yet found is yeast 
ergosterol. The advantage of this 
over oil IS the smal dosage, the 
absence of excess fat, and the 
quick results. It does not turn 
rancid. Recent investigation 
shiws that the vitamin D from 
irradiated yeast may not be just 
the same chemically as that found 
in the oils and natural foods. 
When irradiation goes beyond a 
certain point, a toxic effect is 
produced. When vitamin D is 
given in too large quanlities, it 
affects the kidneys when viost- 
erol is being taken. 

Vitamin D is essential to haeal- 
ing- of all kinds especially of frac- 
tures. It also is a help in pre- 
venting oateomalacia (porous 
bones i. 

Vitamin E has sometimes been 
called the antisterility vitamin, 
but this is rather misleading, as 
it is no- more essential to repro- 
duction than is vitamin A. It has 
been thought by some to lie an 
aid to lacUtion. There is not suf- 
ficient evidence, however, tc 
show that h is essential to hu- 
man nutrition. 

It has be«n found to be wide- 
ly distributed in natural foods as 
whole grains, vegeUbles, meal 
and milk. Wheat germ oil is a 
very rich source. 

The more one studies the diet- 
etic needs of the body and be- 
holds the creators centive he will 
have to do away with those 
things that are harmful and that 
are a btirden and a whip to the 
countless cells that are doing 
their bast to build up the body.

' The study of the race {svUem

ficult 'Without adding to it the 
subjective complicatione of pre- 
conceived theories or regional 
bias. In order to obtain a com- 
pletely limb, point of view on 
the subject, the directors of the

invited to the United SUtes, a

Mr. Schri^e went about his 
task with the detacbment of a

for whoni these questions have 
seemed hopelessly . familiar his 
fresh orientation tongs anew 
and constructive ■view. More than 
that, it throws valuable light on 
the general question of minority 
groups and their place in any so- 
ciety. Not only on the subject of 
the Negro, but also on the Jap- 
anese and (Chinese in California 
and the Mfxirarw and Indians in 
the Southwest he ^ves much 
that is new, and he interrelates 
his findings tellingly. He gives 
both causes and consequences, 
history and present fact. He con- 
siders the possibilities of assimi- 
lation. In short, he tells us where 
to look for the hidden causes of 
conflict and what to expect from 
them. This excellent volume 
should be required reading for 
every student of race problems.

'When Anna Louise Strong was

Does it represent the majority of

determined, and what are the 
mechanics of the government? 
"What about the individual un-

Dear Mrs. Bass: 

PBrmit me to congratulate you 
on this the Fif^-seventh anni- 
versary, of the Calif«Hmia Ea^ 
and tile introduction of the new 
quarters, but main^ the Fifty- 
seventh anniversary of your 
paper. I have had an opportuni- 
ty to witness the progress your 
paper has made in the past 30- 
years and I bdieve I am ac- 
quainted with some of the ob- 
stacles you have to encounter, for 
I have silently helpcnd to wage 
some of your battles. 

I don't know of any paper 
among our people, that has 
fought so many winning battles 
using its columns as a medium 
to do so. The one foremost in my 
mind at present is the recent en- 
count4T with the Southern Cal- 
ifornia Tdephone Co. whidi I 
think is a real trail blazer for 
the future generation. 

We have aOso noted the oppor- 
tunity you offer our young peo- 
ple. If we on^ had; a few more 
institutions as yours, which of- 
fered such opportunities in a 
commercial and industrial way I 
.believe we could accomplish 
more. Again permit us to con- 
gratulate you and wish you may 
accomplish as much or more in 
the future as you have in the 

Mr. and Mrs. H. A. Reeves. 



"Fear thou not! lor I am with 
thee: be not dismayed; for I am

A Scriptural selection includes 
these words of Jesus from Mat-

Take no thought for your life, 
what ye shall eat, or what ye 
shall drink: not yet for your

the life more than meat, and the 
body than raiment? . . . 'Where- 
lotne, if God so clothe the grass 
of the field, which to day is, and 
tomorrow is cast into the oven. 
shall he not much more clothe 
you, O ye of little faith? There- 
fore take no thought, saying, 
'What shall we eat? or. What 
shall we drink? or. 'Wherewithal 
shall we be clothed? . . But seek 
ye first the kingdom of God, and 
his righteousness; and all these 
things shall be added unto you."

On the eve of the big conven-

JniRg #oing on among the boys. 
However next week it looks as 
though activities wiU start in ear- 
nest -*'■'*• 

tjam Baumann has launched 
his Ccimpaign for Assemblyman 
62nd district, subject to the will 
of the Democrats. The fight be- 
tween Samuel C. Baumann and 
Augustus Hawkins, incumbent, 
will be watched with interest 
from the G.O.P. sidelines. 

Fred Roberts is as busy as a 
hen with one chicken these days. 
His battle line will be thrown 
in the field next week, now that 
the big Cleveland show has 
named the standard bearers. 
Fred .says he's headed for Sacra 
mento, where he will again rep. 
resent the 62nd district. 

Dr. J. A. Somerville and Sam 
Baumann will have seats in the 
commg Democratic convention. 
The former as alternate and the 
latter a delegate. 

"Win with Campbell" as their 
slogan, the big drive to send Wil- 
liam D. Campbell to Congress 
from the 14th district will swing 
into operation with a gigantic 
rally. Date and place to be named 

These politicians are busy hurl- 
ing charges and counter charges 
at each other. Mrs. Clark of the 
board of education is , making 
faces at Joseph Shaw, brother of 
our Honorable mayor. 

There seems to be trouble 
brewing in the ranks of black 
Democracy. Battle lines are 
drawn between the Hawkins and 
Baumann forces, with Dr. Som- 
erville piloting Sir Samuel. They 
are all Democrats, let 'em fight. 
The boys say Hawkins let Sam 
kick a field goal by ducking the 
ihance to become a delegate to

their hearers with their master-

having passed the rigid examina-

demonstrated to their friends 
that the certificate they had won 
was not a mere scrap of paper, 
but was a reward for the many 
weary hours of study they had 

This certificate called the Let- 
ter of Aptitude, was awarded to

University of Southern Califor- 
nia. He is an executive member 
both of the NAACP (Los Ange-

Local Council of Congress to 
Organize 'Service' Employes 

A large and enthusiastic audience, composed of organizational 
delegates and visitors, listened to and acted upon the various com« 
mittee reports, at the meeting of the L. A. Council of the National 
Negro Congress, held last Friday evening. 

The committee on Industrial Relationships, Employment and 

therefore groups, individuals or 
business houses which plan to 
send exhibits should register 
them immediately. Particularly 
business houses are urged to par- 
ticipate, through sending photo- 
graphs, etc. of their business. 
Registration can be made by ad- 
dressing the above named com- 
mittee at 1158 E. 12th St. 

The committee on Education, 
Art and Culture submitted a re- 
organization planned at Jefferson 
high school. This re-organization 
is to include changes in curri- 
culum which will widen the faci- 
lities fo: students at Jefferson ch- 
aining a better academic train- 

In su omitting the report thfl 
committee pointed out, that al- 
though on the surface this re- 
organization is very fine, to b« 
adequately administered it must 
have a personnel sympathetic to 
and understanding the problems 
of the Negro students. 

Also, since no indication of vo- 
cational courses was given other 
than art and commerce, the com- 
mittee also emphasized the 
necessity of the curriculum for 
vocational courses being planned 
on the basis of pupil-interest, 
rather than on the mere as- 
sumption of traditional Negro 
occupational opportunity. 

The committee strongly urged 
that the Local Council of the N. 
N. C. keep closely in touch with 
developments at Jefferson high. 

Future meetings of the Coun- 
cil will be announced shortly. 
New organizations are urged to 
join, and visitors are always wel- 

Labor reported that it is begin- 
ning the organization of a work- 
ers council for household em- 
ployees, whose effort will be to 
educate these workers in meth- 
ods of solving the problems con- 
fronting them, and also to en- 
deavor to draw into the council 
a larger nuipber of household 
employees. * '•■««i|PNI|fJ 

This committee was also given 
authorization by the N. N. C. 
Council to investigate the em- 
ploymentpolicy of the General 
Motors Assembly Plantat South- 
gate. In order to facilitate the 
work of this committee Negroes 
are urged to make application 
for work at the Plant, and report 
to Mr. Clarence Johnson at 1158 
E. 12th street the attitude en- 
countered^ when making applica- 
tion. ' 

The committee on Unemploy- 
ment, Social Seciyity and Relief 
will sponsor art (^en hearing on 
discriminatory jiractices in the 
WPA on Sunday, June 21st at 3

tion are urged to attend this op- 
en hearing and make statements 
concerning their cases. Written

Moyor Shaw Lauds Negro 
Youth In Presenting Flag 

; Amid a scene long to be re- 
membered in color and beauty. 
an overflow crowd gathered 
Wednesday night to witness May- 
,or Frank Shaw, make formal 
presentation of the United States 
flag to Troop No. 617 Boy Scouts 
of America, in the soacious 3'"^!- 
torium of the Elks buOding. The 
notable ceremony took place at 
exactly 8:00 p. m. as scheduled. 
Members of other scout trooos 
in the city were on hand nattily 
attired in their colorful uniforms. 
to witness the honor paid their 
brother troopers. 

By far, Wednesday night's af- 
fair was one of the most out- 
standing" civic and patriotic trib- 
ute ever paid an organization on 
the eastside. This fact was keen- 
ly noted, especially when it w4s 
not advertised as such. The pure- 
ly civic side of the splendid pub- 
lic event got under way at 6 p. m. 
with a banquet in the new cock- 
tail salon of the Elks Temple. 
More than 200 guests responded 
to arrangement committee chair- 
man Baxter Scruggs invitation 
to atfSnd. Deputy City Attorney 
Bert McDonald was master of 

ceremonies, that saw several 
prominent citizens and city of- 
ficials get to their feet and ex- 
press word of praise for the men 
and women who had toiled so 
hard and earnestly in the interest 
of youth development and oppor- 

Among tTios: v.-r.o made short 
talks were Dr. Ruth Temple, 
Councilman G. Vernon Bennett, 
Chief Deputy District Atty. Stew- 
art, Deputy Dist. Atty. Chas. 
iviatthews. Chief of Police James 
E. Davis, and Mayor Frank Shaw. 
Mrs. Charlotta A. Bass read tele- 
grams from District Attv. Buron 
Fitts and Superior Judge Am- 
brose who- were unable to^attend. 
Mr. Fitts is in Tennessee on of- 
ficial business. 

Throughout the ent:re program 
during the '^-'^nust, a note o' .■"^- 
plause and of courage was sound- 
ed, that Negro men and women 
were advancing alqng the ri?ht 
road leading to the 'fuller enjoy- 
ment of citizenship, with an urge 
to stimulate their endeavors. 
Scoutcraft, the influence of the 
church and excellent educational 
opportunities were stressed as 


being contributable factors m 
this newer good citizenship de- 

.'^s the hour of 8:00 p. m. near- 
ed. the group at the banquet 
mo\ed on di>\Mi stairs to the 
awaiting thr-^ngs in the main 
auditorium. There the scout troop 
was signaled out for the special 
honor. No. 617 Boy Scouts of 
America, stood at rigid attention. 

Other scout troops flanked them, 
augmenting the honor troops in 
numbers nearing 300 hundred 
khaki clad boys. These in turn 
were flanked by blue clad mem- 
bers of the American Legion and 
khaki clad uniformed members 
of Veterans of Foreign Wars.

examples of hard working and 
"straight shooting" youth ascend- 
ing the ladder of achievement. 
The Scout Circle was formed by 
troopers of B. S. of A. No. 617 to 
receive the flag. Mayor Frank 
Shaw made the presentation of 
the large troop flag that was do- 
nated by' the Newton street po- 
lice juvenile bureau. 

Before making the presenta- 
tion the chief spoke glowingly of 
the outstanding work being per- 
formed in the juvenile corrective 
educational department, known 
as the Juvenile Bureau of New- 
ton division, under the direction 
of Lieut. Homer L. Garrott. The 
bureau, it was pointed out, is en- 
tirely composed of Negro offi- 
cers, the only one of iu kind in 
America. In addition to Lieut. 
Garrott, the personnel of the bu- 
reau includes Earl C. Broady. C. 
W. Wheeler. Lydia C. Reed, Jua- 
nita Edwards, W. E, Stanley and 
Paul Pettiford. ' 

The committee on ararngement 
hpaded by Baxter Scruggs, verj- 
cleverly spotted the far reaching 
ceremonies with appropriate mu- 
sical entertainment. The com- 
mittee also included Rev. T. L. 
Griffith. Flovd C. Covington, 
Rev. J. E. Pius, Sgl. W. D. Smith 
and Mrs. Charlotta A. Bass, who 
was its secretary. 

The Chief of Police and his pis- 
tol team also performed for the 
assembled guest scouts and their 
parents. Officer Arnold P. Towns, 
Negro winner of a marksman 
award and Chief Davis combined 
to demonstrate the confidence he 
had in his straight shootmg offi- 
cers. Tlie chief moved several 
paces awSy from the officer, then 
placing a cigaret in his mouth 
held it for Officer Towns to shoot 
it out with his pistol. The mem- 
bers of the troop promised to ne- 
ver allow the colors to become 
besmirched by any dishonorable

Rican, won his 16th consecutive 
American victory here Monday

counts of nine in the third and 
fourth rounds and on the verge 
of a knockout three times. Mon- 
tanez suffered a gash over his 
eye in the seventh. 

This fight, the most important

Adopting the same alert pro- 
duction vision which was re- 
sponsible for such film hits of 
front page news stories as "I Am 
A Fugitive From A Chain 
Gang", "Little Caesar" and the 
current "Bullets Or Ballots" 
Jack L. Warner now announces 
plans to produce immediately 
"Black Legion", an original film 
s.ory based upon the violent 
deeds of the secret organization 
which have hit the headlines dur- 
ing the past week. 

Writers will be assigned to 

prepare the siory which will be 

rushed into production with an 
all-star cast. 


Compliments of 
Mr. and Mrs. B. G. 

154 Pepper St. 



Greetings and salutations, gang, 
are you listening?. Well swing 
out and let's "latch on" and get 
the low-down. There's a little lady out 
in San Bernardino, Calif, who 
deserves a lot of credit for her 
fine music ability and also for 
her eflfort in establishing the use 
of colored musicians and enter- 
tainers in that vicinity. This lit- 
tle lady is none other than 
Claudia Clausell, who has her 
own band, the "Babylonians" 
playing nightly at the Club 
Babylon for the past number of 
months, and is proving a big hit 
with the patrons there. 

The personnel of the band if 
Claudia (piano and accordian) 
Clausell: Walter (guitar and ban- 
jo) Mitchell: Fats (trumpet-trom- 
bone) Dozier; Jesse ( sax-clari- 
net i Cruze and Earl (drums and 
bass violin) Clausell. I personally 
wish Claudia, the best of luck 

Elliott Lewis and his string 
ensemble are still going over big 
with the patrons out at the Bev- 
erly Wilshire hotel lounge room. 
Their contract for the last eight 
months has been renewed, altho 
Elliott and his ensemble was of- 
fered a contract to go up to Lake 
Arrowhead for ihe summer sea- 
son, but this nice offer was turn- 
ed down to remain at the Bev- 
erly- Wilshire hotel. 

Flash: Louis Armstrong with 
Louis Russell Band will prob- 
ably open at Sebastian's Cotton 
Club in a couple of weeks. At 
the present time there's a white 
band holding down the band 

Ned (piano) Stanfield for the 
past few weeks have been at the 
Famous Door in Hollywood, 
where Louis Prima is swinging 
nightly and from my connec- 
tions out in Hollywood I hear 
that Ned is making a big hit 
with the crowd out there. 

Pee Wee and Country (Aliens 
take notice . . . Chas, (piano) 
Davis is stil playing lots of piano 
and swinging with various bands 
here in town . . . Richard Bates, 
Elemer Fain, Lawrence Lassiter,

been out to MGM studio for the 
past week working in production 
"Gorgeous Hussy". ... Chas. 
(sax) Jackson is blowing the 
keys off his ^ horin up at the 
"Tuey Fong Lovv" Cafe up town. 
and is doing a mighty fine job at 
it, this "cat" is really headed for 
tops . . . Seen at random in the 
weej hours — Chas. (piano Evans

'rince Mbdupe of Af rico. On 
Staff of Tarzan' Series 

Press Bureau 
CTJLfER CITY, Calif. Jun« 
11 — ^Verified news from studio 
execs here today confirmed re- 
ports heard earlier in the week, 
that Prince Modupe Paris native 
of Nigeria, West Africa, had been 
signed as a technical advisor, or, 
saperviaor for the "Tarzan" fUm 
series being prepared at the Met- 
ro-Gold wyn -Mayer studio. Prince 
Modupe. as he is known comes 
by his title by right of heritage. 
He will serve as technical expert 
cm all things .African in the story 
now being prepared for filming 
"Tarzan Returns.' 

The signing of the much tra- 
veled and highly educated Afri- 
can Prince is regarded by stu- 
dent, of race progress in the pic- 
ture industry, as being highly 
significant. It is the first time in 
history of pictures that a mem- 
ber of the racial farr.ih- called Ne- 
gro, has been thus engaged by 
a major studio. Hitherto, all of 
the 'experts' have been white 
men. with a very little know- 
ledge of African native, or jun- 
gle life that has been too 
ofteii limited as to Geography. 
Pririce Modupe, has traveled ei- 
tensively all over the .African con- 

In signing the former Oxford 
grauate, the studio insures it- 
self against ar.y further loss it 
experienced in the shelving 
of other prints of 'TarzJfn Re- 
turns'' made starring Johnnie 
WeismuUer and Lupe Velez. be- 
cause of technical inacaracies. The 
fact that the Prince, a man po- 
Kssed cf a well grounded educa- 
uon, has had occasion for travel 
thruout the length and breadth 
3f the African continent, and 
made a comparative study of dif- 
ferent tribes, their traits and lan- 
guage, makes him an invaluable 
ud in future film productions 

touching Africa. 

The Prince, is at present hard 
at work in the Research and Art 
departments at the studio, assist- 
ing mapping out authentic models 
of the terrain and jungle vege- 
tation, as well as lending aid to 
the costume department in get- 
ting ready the identical native 
dress worn by tribesmen dupli- 
cated by actors here. The Prince 
will also lend expert advice on 
re-arranging the scriot and dia- 
logue in keeping with the other 
changes made. The man appears 
to know his work well, as he 
takes his assignments in stride. 

"Tarzan Returns" is a Hyman 
Production made in the Metro- 
Goldwyr-Mayed studios. Prince 
Modupe Paris, is 35 years of age. 
He is the son of a prosperous 
with his mother on his manv 
with his mather on his mank 
trading jaunts that took him to 
almost every nook and comer of 
the vast continent. He was edu- 
cated as a musician. His family 
sent him to Oxford, famous Uni- 
versity in London. England, Aft- 
er graduation, he decided on seek- 
ing further worlds of travel and 

He returned to his native coun- 
try- and organized his own com- 
pany of native m.usicians and dan- 
cers and singers, with which he 
began his world tour. The Mo- 
dupe troupe was one of the mea- 
tures of the recent Chicago World 
Fair. Later the>- showed here at 
the Philharmonic Audtorium. 
Prince Modupe, a'nd two of his 
three children appeared in scenes 
of the "Green Pastures." The 
Prince played the role of a 'socer- 
er." The brilliant'African is mar- 
ried to an American wife who 
has ?;nce become the mother of 
his three children. She was be- 
fore her marriage, Vivian Jud- 
kms of Chicago.

you cannot see the Negro s busi-

which owe an apolcgy to Christian-

Speaking of past events: Last 
Saturday week was Memorial 
Day as you all know. The nation 
paid tribute to the dead and hom- 
age to the li'ving who served m 
the nation's wars that our coun- 
trv might become a nation of the 
p^ple, for the people, governed 
by the people. And history tells 
us of its success. May these

After Seeing Howard, Atlanta 


(Staff Corespondent) 

ATLANTA. Ga., June 12.— 
About the first thing that real- 
ly happened to me in Atlanta 
was a trip to Spelman, where in 
the chapel we saw "Festus, the 
Fust", a drama of Negro life. The 
three-act comedy is written by 
Erostine Coles and was present- 
ed by a student cast selected 
from Spelman. Atlanta and 
Morehouse universities. 

Here it was we saw Josephme 
Blodgett, Frances Carroll, (A.V.) 
Edna Bowdoin's niece: and Emily 
Brown, Mrs. Josephine Brown's 
daughter, all students on the 
same campus. 

Sunday, May 24. I attended the 
AME Zion S. S. and services at 
Big Bethel at 11 a. m. Rev. How- 
ard, formerly of Ward Chapel 
and now at Monroe. La., preach- 
ed the sermon. Rev. William 
Prince and' his daughter. Mrs. 
Margaret Hubert of Imperial, 
were present. 

Rev. Prmce spoke, after which 
Brother T>-ler brought the vast 
audience greetings from historic 
Eighth and Towne. In the after- 
noon we attended the Baccalaur- 
eate of Gammon Theological col- 
lege. The president of Tallade- 
ga delivered the address. I know 
Dr. A. C. 'Garrott would have en- 
joyed hearing him. 

May 25. we attended Kappa 
Boule". regular meeting, at the 
residence of A. T. Walden, attor- 
ney. 980 Westmoor drive. 

College and school sermons, 
exercises and commencements 
are the absorbing rage. 

We spoke at Clark university 
chapel on program with Dean B. 
J. Brawlev and president. Dr. M. 
S. Davage. Dean Brawley is 
well known in Los Angeles. He 
attended USC; his mother is Mrs. 

Wp spoke at Morris Er^wn, 
senior class exercises. Dr. Wm. 
A. Fountain is president and Bis- 
hop W. A. Fountain sr. is chan- 
cellor. We also-delivered a short 
address at Beulah Baptist church 
on Gibson and foundry streets at 
the corner ston^e laying. Grand 
Master J. W. Dobbs officiated, 
assisted by the- grand officers. 
The turnout was impressive. Ful- 
Iv 300 of the craft marched in 
full regalia. We tried to convey 
the felicitations of the California 
craft to our brethren in Atlanta. 
The Junior and Senior high 
schools are combined in the 
Booker T. Washington high 
school. We attended their Bac- 
calaureate hfld in the open air 
in front of the building. About 
6000 attended. A chorus of 300 
voices rendered Handel s Halle- 

lujah chorus and other numbers 
Dean Hill of Turner Theological 
college delivered the sermon 

The class numbered more than 
'300 graduates and it marched to 
seats prepared for it on the steps 
and in front of the building. In- 
spiring, beautiful and sad it was 
to see them. All of them hopeful 
of a place in the sun; each one 
had struggled with some handi- 
cap at home or in class room, or 
of a personal nature. Not one 
knew of the psychology of the 
race which causes it to trade 
with tradesmen and to hire pro- 
fessionals who are non-colored. 
We mean largely— for the most 
part. What are these fine young 
folks to do? Many will teach in 
school, college and academy. The 
professions must be recruited. 
But essentially our country is a 
land of agricultural and business 
enterprise. Industry is the order 
of the day. I believe, however, 
that if we can hold on to what 
we have for the next 30 years 
our economic status will be so 
greatly improved rs to allay our 
present grave fears. 

Atlanta is a better place for 
our group than Harlem and by a 
very large margin. 

In Atlanta, Negroes are seen 
everywhere. They trade in the 
stores, and while it is ^o bo de- 
plored that the street cars have 
a rope or string separating white 
from black yet Negroes do ride 
ail of these cars in ever>- direc- 
tio". Whether in Druid Hill, or 
in the heart of downtown; at 
morning, noon or night one sees 
Negroes and white people. They 
rub shoulders: in fact the Negro- 
es are at least U of the popula- 
tion. They drive trucks and wa- 
gons of every kind. They are at 
every filling station and they 
have something to do in practi- 
cally every store. In The Atlan- 
ta World, the Negro daily. Rich's, 
the leading department store, 
runs a large daily advertisement. 
The Negro in Harlem is almost a 
thing apart from the rest of the 
great metropolitan area. 

Some business is owned of 
course. Atlanta Life Insurance 
company has a first class build- 
ing, a large staff and has 34 mil- 
lions of insurance outstanding in 
nine different states. Milton and 
Yates are the leading druggists. 
Mr. Milton is a relative of Miss 
Gertrude Clirisman. 

The educational iituation is the 
most striking thing about Atlan- 
ta. Here is a center which all 
should know and take interest. 
Atlanta university, Spelman and 
Morehouse are united under the 
General Educational Board. 

There fine new buildings have 
been built and are in ues at A. U. 
Clark and Gammon are M. E. 
church projects. 

Morris Brown is African M. E. 
and uses (by lease) the old build- 
ings of Atlanta. . 

Everybody talks degrees. When 
a speaker is introduced the hear- 
ers are always told that he, or 
she, holds such and such degrees 
or is "pursuing" the M. A., the 
Ph. D. or the double D. Of course 
many persons teach or are pre- 
paring to do so. There are a 
great many well qualified and 
some eminent men and women 
teachers in school or college or 
serving in some administrative 
capacity. Besides, Atlanta is 
nearby many other schools and 
colleges: It is a hub, so to speak, 
and in this particular its influ- 
ence will no doubt grow. So far, 
it would seem to me, the educa- 
tional effort and interest in this 
center have not reached far 
enough into the every-day affairs 
of our people so far as earning 
a livelihood is concerned. Prob- 
lems of farm and factory, no 
must hold on. The day of the 
small business is fast disappear- 
ing. We are not prepared finan- 
cially for "big corporate enter- 
prise". There are millions upon 
millions in what we have now if 
we could only make it function 
100 per cent. 

. I think the time not far distant 
when aU least half of our high 
school graduates in the north 
will come south to college. 

Here, people know each other 
over long periods of time and 
they never forget. I have had 
fully one dozen people ask me 
about Brother J. M. Scott, of £. 
16th street, a brother trustee of 
Eighth and Towne. It seems that 
(Brother Scott used to drive a 
truck for Standard Oil and sold 
kerosene, gas and oil. No one has 
left Atlanta for California whose 
memor>' lasts longer and more 
pleasantly. Bro. A. W. Wilson, 
too, still has many friends sur- 
viving. The fact that I call atten- 
tion to these two is not to be tak- 
en as negligence about others. I 
have been asked about hundreds 
of people now in California who 
have friends here. These folk 
never forget. 

I cannot speak too highly of 
the fine courtesies v.-e have been 
shown. Dr. Hattie S. Warner. 
Dr. and Mrs. G. A. Howell, Dr. 
and Mrs. T. H. Slater, Dr. and 
Mrs. C. W. Powell. Mr and Mrs. 
H. L. Conley Uv. and Mrs. E. S. 
Parks have all been more than 
kind. Mr. and Mrs. Beverly 
Brouseaux gave a stag for me; 

he is Miss beulah Cherry's bro- 
ther. Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Parham 
have both gone out of their way 
in this regard, as have also Mrs. 
A. T. Herndon, Mr. and Mrs. J. 
A. Hopkins, Dr. and Mrs. W. A. 
Fountain jr.. Mr. and Mrs. Bishop 
W. A. Fountain sr.. Dr. and Mrs. 
Charles H. Johnson, Mr. and Mrs. 
J. H. Harvey, Mr. and Mrs. John 
S. Bell, Dr. and Mrs. J. W. E.< 
Linder, Mr. and Mrs. J. O. Tho- 
mas, Mr. and Mrs J. E. Salter, 
Mr. and Mrs. C. L. Harper, Mrs. 
H. R. Butler. 

My wife's sister, Rosa Walker, 
and family were worth driving 
across the continent to visit. An- 
ona Standard, niece to Mrs. Ty- 
ler, gave us a beautiful bridge 
dinner party. Miss Ruble Wise 
held a delightful bridge parly 
for us last Saturday night. 

The most alluring and charm- 
ing of our social gifts, however, 
was tendered us by the Wimbish 
family. Mrs. C. C. Wimbish is 
sister to Dr. Anna Leggett and 
Mrs. Thomas Norris of Los Ange- 

Mrs. "Virginia Wimbish Canada 
led in the affair, assisted by Hat- 
tie W., Edith W. and Mrs. C. C. 

We were escorted to the Country- 
Club building of the golf club. 
where about 200 assembled for a 
reception and dance. A verj- 
fine group and a fine evening in- 

I am quoting a paragraph from 
the Journal, June 3rd, a daily pa- 
per: "Slum areas are proving a 
menace to the city and are un- 
dermining the value of other pro- 
perty. Studies by the City Plan- 
ning Commission show that from 
31 to 37 per cent of all juvenile 
delinquency. infant mortality, 
adult arrests and tubercular 
deaths occur in 5 percent of the 
city's area,'' 

This 5 percent of the city area 
referred to above is for the most 
part colored. These houses are 
not fit for human habitation, and 
the rent is two and three times 
higher than it should be. Of 
course, the Health department, if 
it functioned, would order these 
pestilence breeders torn down. 

Some of the colored people 
live in very fine homes. These 
range from modest modem cot- 
tages to elaborate 10. 12 and 15- 
room houses with every modern 
and artistic appointment. These 
I found to be located largely in 
Ashby. Hunter, Moseley, Simp- 
son and Boulevard streets. Bis- 
hop Fountain's home in Boule- 
vard street would be a credit to 
the better residence district of 

Los Angeles or any other city. 
The immediate neighborhood of 
the Booker T. Washington high 
school contains many lovely mo- 
dern homes. Shrubbery and flo- 
wers are maintained at consider- 
able cost and care. 

For reason of this housing sit- 
uation, the like of which we do 
not yet have in Los Angeles, I 
was happy to be taken through 
the housing project (by PWA) 
near Atlanta university. 

Mr. Moore, teacher at A. U., 
former commissioner of educa- 
tion in the Virgin Isalnds, con- 
ducted us in company with Edith 
and "Virginia Wimbish. The pro- 
ject is to cost 2V4 millions and to 
house over 600 families. It ex- 
tends over a large area. 

The buildings are concrete 
with brick outer facing and in 
some places three stories. Sun- 
day afternoon we shall hear Dr. 
John Haynes Holmes deliver the 
commencement address at Atlan- 
ta. In closing we have had 50 
people ask us about Dr. Robinson, 
a new comer there closely con- 
nected with Father Moore. 


WASHINGTON. D. C. .ur.e 12. 
— So far as the government part 
of Washington is concerned it is 
beautiful beyond words. New 
buildings reflect the enterprise 
and hardihood that characterizes 
the American people. 

One can stand on the steps of 
the Lincoln monument and see 
in a straight line, the dome of 
the capitol and the Washington 
monument. The traditions are 
fittingly embodied in the monu- 
ments; the present security and 
future hopes lie in the House; 
bills that will find expression un- 
der the dome. With all that it 
does not do and that it could do 
for us, yet we could not help but 
feel that it is something after all 
to have voting rights in this great 
republic. Perhaps the interest 
was proprietary to a large ex- 
.tent. The feeling that in hard 
toil in hot sun-burning days our 
grandparents carved some of 
these things out with hoe and 
plow and corn-knife while they 
sang away down yonder by 
themselves made us lift up our 

But most beautiful and awe- 
some of all was the new Supreme 
Court building. It beggars de- 
scription. Perhaps nothing by 
way of public or private edifice 
surpass it. Marble from Alaba- 
was ever constructed that could 
ma, Georgia, Africa: pine wood 
from Maine, gold ''from Califor- 

nia, drapes from far away Arab- 
ia, carvings in marble, wood and 
metal, an'd pillars that seem to 
say "we stand guard here". 
Wherein this mass of beauty 
seemed to live and breathe and 
to speak did it proclaim fixity to 
past pronouncements or an elas- 
ticity that makes the future safe 
under • progressive ideas? Surely 
the spirti of the people that built 
this temple must have you and 
me in mind as fellow human be- 
ings. It seems to be the summa- 
tion of human achievement in all 
times and by all peoples. 

Two other institutions were 
Howard university and Dr. Kelly 

At Howard we saw the new 
buildings (PWA) and went thru 
the law school with Mr. Bernard 
Jefferson, junior member of Ty- 
ler and Jefferson. The brilliant 
young professor has already 
made a place at Howard and in 
Washington. He begins to climb 
the ladder; we believe that some 
day he will "look into the 

The other institution was Dr. 
Kelly Miller. Dr. Miller has a 
mind as remarkable for its mem- 
ory as for the incisive search his 
questions make of all he ever 
saw or heard or read. 

"How is Charley Darden, and 
Somerville? What ever became 
of Allensworth? Did the Elsi- 
nore resort hold out? Did it 
pay? How is Dr. Wilbur Gor- 
don's wife? Is California safe 
for President Roosevelf Who 
will be the next president of 
Wilberforce?" And so on for an 
hour. No man is more charming 
and no one sees further into the 
afafirs of men! Long life to Dr. 
Kelly Miller. 

Bernard took us in to see Dr. 
William J. Thompkins. recorder 
of deeds. We knew Dr. Thomp- 
kins. "V/e found him head over 
heels in work. He has a large 
staff; he is carrj'ing on a project 
which has the copying' and re- 
indexing of the land records 
from earliest times down to date, 
for its mam objective. This adds 
about 75 clerks, typists and copy- 
ists to his office and to his care. 

As one of the race"s foremost 
Democrats he is, of course, much 
sought after. He is cautious to 
the point of conservatism; he 
weighs things and people politi- 
cally in fine scales and it is at 
once apparent that in the presi- 
dential campaign he will be one 
of those whose influence will be 

We visited Dr. Robert C. Wea- 
ver, one of the high officials un- 
der Secretarj- Ickes. Because of 

^ edocatioln, liJs kptitudft for 
New Deal policies and his famil- 
iarity with stirveys and housing, 
Dr. "Weaver is one ol the most 
important men we have in the 
nation. He is as helpful and sym- 
pathetic to our problems and our 
needs as he is advised and capa- 
ble. Dr. Weaver told us of the 
housing, project in Washington 
which, he said, was being design- 
ed by Mr. Hilliard Robinson and 
Mr. Paul R. Williams, assisted by 
ten draftsmen. Just last week, 
we read in the Negro World, 
which is the Atlanta race daily, 
that this project has been ap- 
proved. Since "slum-clearance" 
is to be undertaken by housing 
projects, and since the subject is 
comparatively new for our coun- 
try we may expect Brother Paul 
to find a place at the top in this 
new field. 

In the office of the Recorder 
of Deeds, we found Miss Theodo- 
sia Jones. Miss Jones will attend 
the National Convention. 

Miss Cynthia Mitchell, former- 
ly of Los Angeles, is secretary to 
Dr. R. C. Brown, who has a unit 
in the Public Health service of 
the Treasury. She is not quite a 
"brain trustor" but mighty close. 

Attorney Hastil, Harvard law, 
etc., has a $5600 per year job un- 
der Mr. Secretary Ickes. He is 
assigned to Insular Affairs. He 
is favorably mentioned for U.S. 
Judge in the "Virgin Islands. 

Dr. Hamilton Martin and his 
charming wife, Cecile, were kind 
enough to have us to dinner. 
They have a palatial home and 
mind you, not the news column, 
"palatial"'. It borders three 
streets and in appointments, is a 
thing of beauty, of comfort, and 
of happy enjoyment. Here it was 
that "the two Franks'" — Dr. 
Frank Pearl and Dr. Frank Gor- 
don—lived again in pleasant 

They must have both "mashed" 
the same Miss Curtis, Judge 
Cobb, and Atty '.'Slim" Hamil- 
ton, Special U. S. Attorney Gen- 
eral; my old-time friend, Johnnie 
Cornwell of Dartmouth, now C. 
P. A.; and there were Miss Cal- 
loway and Curtis, and Scott and 
Jones and Mr. Alexander. A 
very lovely time not for me alone 
but as proof of how well Los An- 
geles people have endeared 
themselves to Dr. and Mrs. Mar- 
tin. Everyone knew somebody 
in the Golden State; everyone 
looked forward to a visit on the 
coast. "Slim" Hamilton's com- 
ing to the APA confab thLs sum- 
mer. This for benefit of those of 
our girls who have an eye to the 
main chance — 

He is a bachelor and tall and 
has a $5100 job. 

A lot of the dread of "jim 
crow" in railroad travel is all 
"bosh"', that is, if you can pay 
first class fare. I rode Pullman 
from Washington. D. C. to Atlan- 
ta for $5.00. I ate in the Pull- 
man, but could have eaten in the 
diner. From what I learned 
about it, our folk don't go into 
the diner on "first call", but the 
diner must serve you. This was 
in North and South Carolina and 

No extra charge is made for 
service in the Pullman.

Noting last we«k that Cadet 
Benjamin O. Davis Jr. had suc- 
cessfully passed his examinations 
at West Point military academy 
and would be one of this year's 
graduates, set us to reminiscing 
a bit. 

More than a decade ago, as 
kids together in schooL "B.O.." 
as he was called, and 1 were pals 
and always indulging in military 
tactics, sports, etc. It seems like 
a long time now. but after all, 
it's no time at all. 

FollowTi-g in the footsteps of 
his father. Colonel B. O. Davis, 
of the regular army, who is mili- 
tary instructor at Tuskegee In- 
stitute. "B.O." is the first Negro 
to graduate from West Point in 
many years. 

Rigid physical and mental tests 
have fitted him for a long and 
useful service in his chosen work. 
And. it is a thing like this that 
makes this column realize all the 
more the pranks that Fate plays 
upon we humans. Congrats, 

This 13 the last time this col- 
umn goes to press before Joe 
Louis faces Max Schmeling in 
N'ew York City, and taking ad- 
vantage of time, we wish to haz- 
ard a little guess. And, it is — 

That Louis wiU appear more 
imbeatable than ever in one of 
the greatest heavyweight fights 
in ring history ^-hen he stops 
Hen- Schmeling in exactly three 

And. after Wednesday night, if

To, the attention of newspaper 
readers this week was brought 
the story of the eight remaining 
Civil War "mercy angels,"' (nurs- 
es, to you). And among these 
eight pioneers of a noble profes- 
sion is Mrs. Rose Russell, who 
"doesn't know how old she is, 
but must be around 100," and 
who was bom a slave near "Vicks- 
burg. Miss. 

We make the following motion: 
That the "powers-that-be." in or- 
der that future generations may 
well look upon her as a source of 
inspiration, do som^ething to per- 
petuate her memory. 


Deaths, although accidental, as 
a direct result of the necessary 
tour-wheel evil, the automobile, 
always seem to go against the 
grain of one's conscience. Last

to learn of the nearly-fatal acci- 
dent in one instance and fatal in 
the other, which mvolved Dean

After a great deal of experi- 
mentation on the part of the 
manufacturers w-e now have a 
great variety of frozen desserts 
that we can prepare, than ever 
before. How much 
things to be able to put a miix- 
ture m the mechanical refrig*- 
erator and then almost forget 
about it until the time comes to 
serve it as a dessert for dinner. 
Of course there are some types 
of frozen desserts that require 
some stirring during the freez- 
ing pnjcess and others that need 
the additipn of fruits and nuts 
before the final freezing. Only a 
few minutes time is required to 
put the recip)e together and into 
the tray. Is that not worthy of 
the consideration of a 

product in any way'

red several times to avoid crys- 
tallization unless a filler is used, 
and the "putterfat content is at 
least 20 percent. The flavor will 
be better distributed and there i? 
less crystallization if the water 
and sugar are combined into 
syrup. The sugar content should 
not be too high, as this tends to 
cause crystallization. 

Question: What are fillers"

cornstarch, junket, gelatin pro- 

-Answer- — There is less cr;.-sta;-

of the evaporation of the "»-atcr

m.ilk will whip if properly xrhil'-

Rig Af arrangement 
of gink, Ttatge and 
igerator cut» 
down kitchen stepg 

W1t«n ArcWlert Lyle Nel»on B«r- 
rame planned thi« rharminjc 7- 
room honsr, he deaisned a 
kitchen where careful arranfement 
of refrigerator, link and ttove 
leaaens footwork. Located in terri- 
tory Bcrved by the Bureau of Power 
and Light, the architect tnygests 
low co»t municipal electricity for 
cookinir, further reducing the 
hour* required for kitchen Ualu. 

More Complete Use of Electricity 
Lessens Time for Kitchen Tasks 

V.Tien the architectural firm of 
Barcume and King, Los Angeles. 
was retained to plan a home for 
Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Kinsley, plan- 
ning started from the kitchen, with 
the result that the interesting 
house soon to rise in a picturesque 
San Fernando Valley .<;etting will 
not only be attractive but will have I 
a kitchen where kitchen labors will 
be light indeed. 

This is the practice followed by 
Barcume and King, under whose ' 
direction many of California's best 
small homes have been built. It is 
the trend beirj followed by archi- 1 

tects and home builders more and 
more as the need for step saving 
in the kitchen becomes recognized. 
"We like to think of the kitchen 
as the workshop of the home," Mr. 
Barcume e.xplained. "In small 
homes, it is in the kitchen where 
so much of the modem's 
time is spent. The kitchen is a pro- 
duction department, and while we 
can't emulate industry's 'straight- 
line' production, wo can at least 
plan kitchens where the logical ar- 
rangement of cupboards, sink, re- i 
frigerator and stove is such as to j 
lessen kitchen activities." i 

Tn regard to «juipm«nt for the 
kitchen, Barcume and King lean 
toward the all-electric idea. In 
keeping with modem ideas of labor 
saving convenience in the kitchen, 
an electric range offers many ad- 
vantages including ihriftiness of 
operation. At low municipal elec- 
tric rates, those whose homes are 
served by the Los Angeles Bureau 
of Power and Light may cook elec- 
trically for less than $2.10 ppr 
month. The figure is based on bills 
paid by the average household of 
three to four people and .«en.-ed by 
low -cost municipal electricity.

It's quite difficult to keep the*a point to give their ha..ds this

H there are hard, calloused 
patches on the palms of your 
hands, it's an excellent idea to

board you use on your nails be- 
fore rubbing in the olive oil. 
This permits the oil to i>enetrate 
deeper into the skin instead of 
being wasted on the tough out- 
er layer. 

It's a good idea, too, to wear a 
pair of light, cloth gloves at 
night to keep the oil on the 
hands and allow it to work its 
way thoroughly into the skin. 
You can wear the same pair of

keeps our hands thrust in hot 
soapy water or near a hot stove 
has a tendency to make the 
skin dry, cracked and uattrac-

way into the hands to make the 
problem even more difficult. 

But beautiful hands are such 
an important asset in our ap- 
pearance that it's well worth 
while to give them the care and 
attention necessary to keep them 

A simple and inexpensive way 
to keep the skin of your hands 
from dying is to massage them 
regularly with ordinary olive oil.

(Negro Pres Borean) 

Last Sunday more than 400 
citizens thronged the spacious 
new quarters of the California 
Eagle, to honor its c»lebration of 
the 57th anniversary of its found- 
ing. By far. the swelling all-day 
crowds proved to be that of one 
of the most distinguished and 
smcere groupings of local ci<tizens 
to ever pay tribute to an out- 
standing Negro Institution. Rev. 
S. M. Bieane, pastor of Hamilton 
M. E. church, presided at the his- 
toric ceremonies. 

Scores of pioneer Califomians 
who had watc'ned the progress of 
the Cairfomia Eagle, even almost 
from its founding by th* late 

John James Neimore in 1879, paid 
marked tribute to its mighty bat- 
tles in the cause of Negro citi- 
zenry in the west down through 
the pages of hiatoiy of its birth, 
and told a paragraph or two, 
about the signal progress recent- 
ly made by its present publisher, 
the widowed Mrs. Charlotta A. 

Titus Alexander, prominent 
Negro citizen and champion of 
the city's fi^t for water and 
power, paid a most dramatic trib- 
ute to the Eagle and its present 
heati. for the untiring fight made 
to finrt bring about proper na- 
tional legislation to provide funds 
for the dredging and widening of 
Uie Los Angeles harbor, then to 

legislate an adequate bond issue 
to insure the erection of the pres- 
ent aqueduct -system that allows 
the city to bring the much need- 
ed water for domestic use from 
the Owens river, down r.ow to the 
recently won fight for proper 
Federal and local legislation 
needed to insure the equal oaxti- 
cipation of this municipality in 
the completed Boulder Dam pow- 
er project. 

Percy Buck, an outstan(Jinf 
figure in the cause of labor 
stressed the all important role 
the Ea^ has played in the inter- 
est of all labor in the west. Buck, 
a member of the powerful dinmjj 
car cooks and waiters luiion., 
lauded the £jt^, the late editM- 

and publisher J. B. Bass, and the 
present head Mrs. Charlotta .A. 
Bass, for the steadfast and ear- 
nest battles they waged in mak- 
ing that organization possible. 
Other notables introduced by 
toastmaster S. M. Beane were 
equally enthusiastic in their ex- 
pressions concerning the lauda- 
tory and meritorious sei-vice of 
the Ea^e to the citizens here in 
the far west 

George Kandoi a comparative 
newcomer here, drew a tnimder-

Sends Bonus

"I'm going to send it to my

war veteran of 927 East 53rd 
street, when asked what he was 
going to do with his bonus last 
Monday afternoon at the Ben J. 
Bowie Post sub station at 5429 
Central avenue. 

B«tM was the first veteran to 

h*s« i„

West 35th street, past command- 
er of the Ben Bowie unit. 

Although the officials at the 
station were ready for business 
at I p. m. the first veteran didn't 
arrive until 2;20. 

Unmarried. Bates wasn't un- 
duly excited hy the ceremonies. 
He is a retired master sergeant. 
having spent 30 years in the army 
and was with the 25th infantry 
and Ninth Cavalrj'. He is said to 
have made a splendid record in 
the service of Uncle Sam. and 
has a nephew at present at Fort

Crazed mob 
pursues cops 
and victims 

(Negre Press Borean) 
EX CAMPO. Texas. June IS.— 
Sheriff E. J. Koehl of "Wharton 
county and Sheriff Harris MUner 
of Matagorda county, combined 
here today in a series of razzle 
dazzle tricks to shake off from 
pursuit a lynch mad mob. who 
sought ten Ngroes suspected in 
the slaying of Tim Simmons, a 
special' officer. Simmons was 
kiUed when !.e attempted to 
break up a fight among Negro i 
celebrants of the pajinent of the 
bonus in a cafe-dance hall. 

The mob stormed the place 
where the officer was killed and 
burned it to the ground. Follow- 
ing the apprehension by the au- 
thorities of a Negro named Major 
Douglas, the remainder of those 
suspected m the slaying, were 
quickly rounded up and sent to 
the Wharton county iail for safe 
keeping. A milling mob quickly 
formed about the jail -demanding 
the Sheriff to turn the prisoners 
over to it. Their demands were 
met with refusals. 

Sheriff Koehl. fearing that the 
mob would soon gather in suffi- 
cient numbers to storm the jail, 
employing a ruse, had the prison- 
ers spirited from the jail to the 
Matagorda county jaU. The mob 
thought they had been taken to 
the Corpus Christi jail. |.«aming 
that they had not beeh taken 
there but to the Matagorda coim- 
ty jail a mob began ^forming 
there. However, at this point in 
the game Sheriff MUner of that 
county, had chec'tcmated their 
move and the prisoners were on 
their way back to the Wharton 
county jail. 

The Sheriffs were thus able to 
keep a step ahead of the mob. 
thus saving jail property and the 
lives of their prisoners. Accord- 

gg to - fwpg_"qtr^*pgS^fcj^^d|^ 

town, there ne\Ter would have 
been any trouble if the dead man 
had not provoked it. Tom-nspeo- 
ple were of the opinion that the 
30-year-old special officer was 
jealous because of the money the 
Negro revelers were enjoying re- - 
ceived as a war bonus. Bulldoz- 
ing taunts and the ordinarv' in- 
sulting attitude of a white south- 
erner when dealing with T'egross 
is believed to have ignited the 
spark that saw the officers' lives 
go out in a blaze. The two hardy 
Te.xas Sheriffs are determined 
to protect their prisoners.

New Developments Re- 
vealed in correspondence 
of Bar Prexy and Minister 

19. (ANP)— Elimination of 
Samuel S. Leibowitz, New York 
criminal lawyer, and the substi- 
tution of two defense attorneys 
for the nine boys selected from 
within the state by an indepen- 
dent "Alabama Scottsboro com- 
mittee" loomed this week. 

These new developments were 
revealed through correspondence 
between H. Files Crenshaw, 
presidetit of the Alabama Bar as- 
sociation, and the Rev. Henry R. 
Edmonds, pastor of Independent 
Baptist church. Birmingham, who 
is head of the newly formed 
Scottshioro committee of 31. Lt.- 
Gov. Thomas E. Knight, Jr., 
special prosecutor revealed the 
letters, declaring: "I have noth- 
ing to say as to who shall be 
appointed to represent the defen- 

In his letter to Crenshaw, Dr. 
Edmonds said: "Many Alabama 
people have long desired to get 
rid of extraneous agencies and 
influences in the Scottsboro af- 
' fair and to have these nine Ne- 
gro boys tried simply on the 
merits of their cases as presented 
by lawyers from our own state. 
It now loks as if the way were 

The Alabama committee, ac- 
cording to the minister, is an as- 
sociation "without organic con- 
nection with any other group or 
organization. North or South: its 
interest in the case is wholly in- 
digenous; and It is free to ex- 
press that interest in any way it 
sees fit," He asked that two com- 
petent Alabama attorneys b e 
named to represent the nine 

Crenshaw replied that he had 
no power to name such attor- 
neys, but sent copies of the ex- 
change of letters to all members 
of the bar association, including 
Knight. The bar president added 
the nine defendants have the 
right to choose their own coun- 
sel and such a request to the law- 
yers' group must come from the 
boys themselves. He promised to 
submit the whole matter to the 
Board of Bar commissioners. 

Watts M. Taylor of Birming- 
ham, secretary of Edmonds' com- 
mittee, then wrote to Crenshaw 
his group "was confident the re- 
quest for designation of Alabama 
counsel will come from the de- 
fendants themselves alter t h e 
withdrawal of Mr. Leibowitz 
from the case." He said the com- 
mittee had nothing to do with 
the New York barrister's actions 
but had "received assurance? 
from other sources that he will 
do so ". 

Commenting on the letters. 
Knight .said the Scottsboro nine 
already had been represented by 
21 lawyers, some of them Aala- 
bamans, and that numerous 
grand and petit iuries had pass- 
ed on the guilt of each defendant 
who had been tried. 

The case comes up again at Oe- 
catur July 15. Two of the nine 
have been convicted four times 
of the crime.

'Roads of Pacific' 

The "Roads of the Pacific," re- 
productions of 14 ancient and 
historic highways and trails, have 
just been reopened by the Ford 
Motor Company at the Califor- 
nia Pacific International Expo- 

Irene Silver, Exposition host-

opened to Fair visitors the fam- 
ous roads over which 481,510 
persons rode during the Exposi- 
tion last year. 

The fourteen roads are repro- 
duced in 200-foot sections and 
make a continuous route more 
than half a mile in length around 
the canyon to the south and east 
of the Transportation Building, 
known formerly as the Ford

Claims jobs found 
for 20,000 in May 

A distinct improvement in bus- 
iness conditions is reflected in 
the monthly report of the activ- 
ities of the California State Em- 
ployment Service, according to 
Roy S. Stockton, directbr. 

'The service placed 19,426 men, 
women and juniors on private 
pay rolls in May," Stockton said. 
"Naturally we are proud of this 
achievement, but it is no more 
significant than the fact that our 
new applications for work drop- 
ped 3Vz per cent, and that our 
complete active file, which means 
the number of people who are 
registered with us as wanting 
work, has dropped slightly more 
than 3 per cent. The aetual drop 
in the number of people still 
hunting for work is undoubtedly 
much greater than this, as it is 
impossible, for technical reasons, 
to keep the active file completely 
up to date."

Mission ends 
in gun ploy 

■Ofeyt* Press Barean) 

Paul Hyde, of 2819 Central 
avenue likes to see 'peace and 
harmony' prevail in the family. 
So. ■when his stepson and his wife 
had a quarrel and she left him 
to BO live with her sister, the 
nans watch also disappeared. He 
inspected the estranged -A-ife had 
taken it. The father-m-Iaw- rea- 
»oney it best that he. and not 
ihe husband should go seek its 
return, thereby avoiding any un- 
jecessary friction. 

But, pap-in-law Hyde, when he 
Irove up to the house at 82m E. 
iOth street in a taxi, was 
treetcd w-ith an outburst cf pro- 
ianity by the run-a-way wife's 
ister. Mrs. Jenny Valentine, and 
(fdered from the house. Hyde 
►>ld the police, that as he stepped 
nto the taxi, he heard a gun re- 
"Ort and felt a whizzing lead pel- 
et go singing pa.'=;t his head. 

Hyde, said as he turned to look 
o see what had happened he ob- 
erved the woman's hand with a 
jvin being drawn back thru a 
irindow. 'The man and Fred Hub- 
s', the cab driver who' witnessed 
'.he shooting hurriedly left the 
leene. The 'peace mission' was at 
in end. 




The little face-maiUng escapade 
in which Joe Shaw, brother- iC-- 
retaxy of Major Frank L. Shaw, 
and Mrs. Clark of Board of Edu- 
cation were involved, has gently 
been consigned to the scrap-heap 
by the county jT'ind jurj-. Mrs. 
Clar'ti charged I'nat Shaw had 
offered her a or'be in the p-es- 
ence of her siser board meip- 
berv. Mrs. Rounseville. Called L-*; 
fore the grand ) ly Mrs. 
ville claims that Shaw did not 
in her presence offer Mrs. Clark 
a bribe, the only thing discussed 
was a job for Mrs. Clark's son. 
thus corroborating the statement 
of Mr. .Shaw. 'Whereupon ths 
jury decided it was merely an as- 
sume inn uf Mrs. Clark i vivid 
imagination, and gave Joe a clean

Tom Ford. Democratic Con- 
gressman I4th District, will be 
opposed for the nomination by a 
Townsendite. Pension advo- 
cates claim Ford is not pure in 
heart, and laid down on the job. 

William. D. Campbell seems to 
have clear sailing for the Hepuo- 
hcan nomination for Congres.i. 
14th District. 

Eva 'V'G'ungi hat is in 


ring for the Assembly. 

District Attorney Fitts is leav- 
ing his campaign for re-election 
in the hands' of his friends, and 
they are off to a fine start. A 
public official with a record like 
Fitts' has no trouble finding sup- 

The 'Withdrawal from the race 
for Supervisor by Mrs. O. Hura 
leaves Gordon L. McDonough un- 
opposed so far in the game. 

The Hawkins-Baumann-Somer- 
ville scrap on the Democratic 
side of the fence is attracting 
wide attention. Go to it bovs! 

The Democrats broke into the 
62nd Assembly District with a 
roar 'when they threw open the 
doors of their district headquar- 
ters, 4426 Avalon Blvd., last Fri- 
day, June 12 to the Democrats 
and their friends in the district. 

The crowning event was. the 
intrtKluction of Samuel C. Bau- 
mann, district candidate for nom- 
ination for the Assembly, who 
left Tuesday, June 16 for Phil- 
adelphia to attend, as delegate; 
the National Democratic Conven- 
tion. Mr. Bau^nann is a member 
of the delegation who was pier- 
sonally selected by President 
Franklin Delano Roosevelt. 

Fred Roberts in his quest to 
gain enough votes to cmeh the 
G.O.P. nomniation for the As- 
sem.bly. seems to be staging a 
gtim-shoe campaign. 

But old timers as ~.'ell as late 
comers say that "i'red is truly 
popular, and no doubt will stage 
a perfect comeback. 

Campaign headquarters of va- 
rious candidates have begun to 
dot the old avenue. Boards of 
strategy will soon get under way 
at v/hich time Negroes are going 
to begin fallmg out with each 
other and become bitter enemies 
all on account of some white man 
who seeks office and will not 
know them again till the ne.xt

"Up and down the Avenue the

In his denial of the foregoing 
accusation Abrams says;

Ford 'V-8 trucks have the reserve power to 
deliver their loads on schedule and no 
favors asked. 

The mighty V-8 engine is conservatively 
rated by Ford at 80 horsepower— more than 
is needed for most work. And this is one of 
the main reasons for a Ford truck's econ- 
omy. Because, with so much reserve power, 
the Ford V-8 does its work easier, with less 
effort. The engine operates efficiently and 
at low cost because it is usually below 
"peak." The whole truck, straight through 
to the rear axle, gives you longer life than 
would be possible with a relative'v under- 
powered, over-worked tinit. 

And V-8 power is coupled with eitra ^J /^UmImMzZ^ ChJLS

including springs, is ruggedly built to insure 
users the greatest possible freedom from

But the best way of all for you to learn 
for yourself exactly what a Ford V-8'$ 
reserve power and extra strength means, is 
to try it— on your own job — with your 
own loads, and check the results. Call your

Fr«d G. of the OI»on

"Our fleet of 'V-8's averages over 
10,000 miles per week... The cost 
per mile has been .0401. which in- 
cludes every expenditure pertain- 
ing to keeping the trucks on the 
road. Since they have proved 
equally good for speed and reli- 
ability. ..we intend to standardize 
on Ford 'V-8's." 

L. F. Perrine,V. P. of the General 
Paint Corp., states: '"We have 
been keeping an accurate account 
of delivery costs among several 
hundred trucks operating out of 
our factories, branches, and retail 
Stores where various makes of 
equipment have been in use. 'We 
have come to the conclusion that 
Ford offers tfje most satisfactory

V-8 truck delivery fleet : "We have 
been able materially to reduce our 
unit delivery cost and the equip- 
ment has given uniformly excel- 
lent service." 


W. J. Shipley, Mgr. of the ideal 
Laundry, Long Beach, writes: 
"Our company has standardized 
on Ford delivery cars because we 
have found that they meet all our 
requirements of economy of oper- 
ation, ease of stopping and start- 
ing, extra pickup for driving in 
traffic, and stamina to stand op un- 
der aH kinds of road conditioas and 
driving reqvnrements." 

E. M. Stark, of Riverside, says of 
his fleet of Ford 'V-8 school busses, 
"They have more than proven sat- 
isfactory to me. The initial co*t was 
rigjit, and then the Ford p<rficy 
relative to part replacement wiH in 
time result in a great tcoaetary 
saving. In the operation of my fleet 
ef twehr« V-8 school bosses, we 
are averaging 10 miles per gallan 
of gasoline. "

Journals I Launch Drive 
Imitating California Eagle s 
"On To College" Contest 


> ^ I I i ;.| t r 

Originol in idea, the "On To 
College" contest being sponsored 
by the California Eagle has at- 
tracted not only local but nation- 
wide attention. Newspapers of re- 
pute, supposedly the leading 
newspapers of the country have 
copied the idea and are capitaliz- 
ing on it in an effort to cash in on 
benefits to their own end. 

This movement to arouse a 
lethargic public to a sense of real- 
ization of the need of a definite 
stimulus to further the education 
of the Negro youth was started 
some three months ago by the 
present manager of the contest, 
Mrs. Idell A. Bateman. During 
this time a well laid foundation 
on which to build and establish a 

perpetual fund to help worthy 
students through a college edu- 
cation has been made. Step by 
step the plan, offering clubs, civic 
organizations and public spirited 
citizens a chance to contribute* 
something tangible to racial de- 
velopment, has been formulated. 
This scholarship offer is dif- 
ferent from any scholarship offer 
hereto mode, in that it caters to 
graduates. It is open to any high 
school graduate desiring a college 
education. The only censure 
mode is by the friends and ac- 
quaintances of the graduate. If 
they who know them best deem 
them worthy of support the stu- 
dent is placed accordingly. Only 
one out of every five applicants 

have been able to qualify up to 
the present time. 


The contest is still open to 
^ stduents who may qualify. 


An honor roll, consisting of 
citizens, clubs and civic organiz- 
ations that pledge their support 
in this effort will be published in 
this journal in the near future. 
This roll will act as a sort of indi- 
cator pointing out those persons 
and organizations who, with more 
than words are interested in Ne- 
gro youth and the future of the

-f ■ 



Because of the requests being made for 
public subscriptions to a scholarship fund— it 
was necessary that the utmost core should 
be token in the selection of eligibles. The 
California Eagle could not be responsible for 
the whole task. A process of elimination, 
wherein the friends of the students should 
sit in judgment of their merits, was chosen. 
If the student could not find ten friends who 
thought them worthy of support in the effort 
to attain a scholarship— then automatically 
they were disqualified. 

The students listed with the names of 
friends supporting them ore the fortunate 
ones. It is now up to the friends to justify 
their foith in the student they are helping by 
nutting him or her over the top. 

Do Your. Bit 

Even if you don't know the students- 
make it a moral obligation to do something 
to help in this effort to establish a yearly 
scholarship fund for worthy students. If you 
art not a subscriber— if you hare a friend 
Silkuf if not o subscriber to the Colifornio 
> send in the subscriptions and have 

them credited to any one of the students

Negro boy receives 
top Jefferson honors 

Amidst the plaudits of anxious, proud, tearful, admiring and 
incredulous parents, (parents are such an awful lot of things at 
graduation time) 176 boys and girls, suddenly young men and wom- 
graduated Wednesday afternoon from Jefferson High

One might "splurge ' about the 
beauty •< the scene, for it was 
beautiful, or the solemnity of the 
occasion for graduations are sol- 
emn, or the triumphant loveliness 
of the girls in their go'wns, for 
they were truly lovely; but one 
would have to be a poet to do 
them justice. 

Instead one must confine ones- 
self to an uninspiring recitation 
of the procedings. 

Graduating with honors out of 
the class that contained 106 Ne- 
gro graduates was Cyrus Keller, 
16-year-old former student bodv 
president of Jefferson. Young 
Keller was one of the two class 
speakers, one of the four Ephe- 
bians and a member of the Schol- 
arship Society for two semesters. 
Cyrus spoke with dignity and 
earnestness on the ver\- original- 
ly treated subject, -Yonder Lies 

Miss Juanita Coombs was the 
only other Negro student receiv- 
ing honors, being named a mem- 
ber of the California Scholarship

"I first went to school to learn 
to play the piano." the sweet old 
lady told an Eagle reporter. At 
the urging of her sons who were 
very proud of their mother's am- 
bition, she dropped the music 
and concentrated on the academ- 
ic work in order to graduate. 

When asked as to why she so 
longed to play the piano, she re- 
plied that she wanted to play for 
herself the old hymn, "Jesus 
Lover of My Soul." before it 
comes her time to die.

Take advantage of 
our low rate of ex-

There was a poet once who feeling the tremulous beauty of the 
month of June, voiced that beauty in words so lovely as to with- 
stand time, repetition and the forces that tend to erode originality. 
"What is so rare as a day in June" . . , he sang, and as young love 
walked in flowered bowers and birds trilled to mates ip the blue 

haze of dusk . . . exulted fur- 
ther "Then if ever come perfect 
(• days." the poet who wTote that 
must have visioned graduations 
when he wrote that lovely poem. 
Long lines of delicately gowned 
_ girls and serious faced boys 
"winding toward the culmination 
of dreams. Slow treading col- 
umns of collese seniors on the 
threshold of life. There's some- 
thing akin to weddings in grad- 
uations, that rare combination of 
joy and sorrow indisoluble. 

Los Angeles graduated ap- 
proximately 5000 youngsters 
from schools, colleges and uni- 
versities this week, last week, 
and on into next week. 

Negro students graduated from

ly 4000. Los Angeles should hail 
them, wish them well and lend a 
helping hand to push them on to 
greater heights.

(Director L«ri«UM B««u<y Foufldatlan) 

Nothing can enhance our na- 
tural beauty as much as attrac- 
tive and well-kept hair. Even a 
woman whose features are rath- 
er ordinary will stand out in a 
crowd and attract her full share 
of attention if her hair has a 
lustrous, aUuring appearance. 

Because the growth and de- 
velopment of the hair is depen- 
dent upon the nerve cells and 
glands in the scalp, which must 
get their nourishment from the 
blood stream, the hair is natural- 
ly influenced by the general con- 
dition of the body. Like the oth- 
er features such as teeth, eyes, 
complexion and fingernails, the 
hair quickly reflects any changes 
in our health. 

Simple, wholesome diet, plenty 
of sleep and exercise . . . the or- 
dinary commonsense precautions 
we should take to guard our 
'health. -these will help keep the 
scalp m good condition, just as 
they make the eyes clear and 
sparkling, erase the tired lines 
around the mouth.- and give our 
whole face a more attractive ap- 

But, m addition to this, we 
must devote a little attention to 
the hair itself. We must keep our 
scalp healthy if wc v.- ant to 
avoid dull, lustreless hair. 

Many women keep their wave 
in place during the night by 
wearing some son of tight-fit- 
ting cap to bed. This prevents 
the scalp from coming in con- 
tact with fresh air. restricts the 
circulation of the blood, and 
therefore hinders :he action of 
the organs in the .^calp that con- 
trol the growth of hair. 

Instead of wearing a cap which 
com.pletely cuts off air circula- 
tion, try keeping your marcel in 
place by wearing a hairnet when 
yoii go to bed. For this purpose. 
you can get a net with strong 
coarse strands that will hold the 
hair in place just as well a? a 
cap, and still permit the scalp to 
"breathe". Keeping the scalp 
healthy, and taking precautions 
to prevent thinning of the hair, 
is far more important than the 
slight extra cost of the hairnet. 

A good, thorough brushing at 




regular intervals.—u sing the 
method I'm going to give you,— 
is very important in keeping the 
scalp and hair healthy. It also 
polishes the hair, giving it a 
smooth, glossy texture. 

If you are one of those fortu- 
nate women who can brush the 
hair frequently without ruining 
a marcel, by all means brush the 
hair thoroughly at least twice a 
week, and every day if possible. 

In this case, it is a very good 
policy to give the hair a good, 
thorough brushing just before 
you have it set. Even if your 
beautician brushes your hair be- 
fore marcelling it, the extra time 
soent in brushing it at home will 
aid greatly in keeping the scalp 

Don't just brush your hair 
from the part down the sides of 
the head. This lazy type of 
brushing doesn't help the scalp at 
all. The correct wav to brush the 
hair is UPWARD and OUT- 

First. ho'.ve\'er. be sure you 
have the right type of brush. It 
should have fairly stiff bristles, 
and in each clump of bristles the 
individual strands should be of 
different lengths. This enables 
the brush to penetrate into the 
hair instead of merely brushing 
the uppermost layer. And the 
brush should have a slightly 
rounded face. 

The really scientific way of 
brushing the hair to stimulate 
the scalp is as follows: Part the 
hair from the middle of the fore- 
head straight back. Then lay the 
brush on its side, with the bris- 
tles facing the part and dray it 
upward and sideward through 
the hair. As you do this, rotate 
the brush so that the bristles 
turn down through the strands 
of hair, lifting them upwarn with 
l!-,e brush as the brush is nulled 
out^\ard. Continue to rotate the 
bristles until the brush has mado 
a half turn. The bristles should 
be 'acing away from the head as 
e.arh stroke is completed. After 
doing this on both sides of the 
part, make a new part about one- 
half inch farther down the side 
of the head i-nd repeat the pro- 
cess until ihe whole head has 
been brus* ed.

Jolly Angelenos' 
10th anniversary 
'Hits the Spot' 

One of the most beautiful in- 
formal affairs of the week end 
was the celebration of its tenth 
anniversary by the Jolly Angele- 
nos Club at the Elks Ballroom 
last Saturday night, June 13. It 
was very nearly "tops" for the 
year among like affairs. 

The motive was 'The Jolly 
Angelenos' Cocktail Hov." The 
bar at the affair was erected on 
the stage with the above inscrip- 
tion on its front panel. The birds, 
Monterey furniture, palms, rugs 
and requested numbers for the 
members rendered by Benjamin's 
Orchestra, all lent the illusion of 
an immense cocktail room. 

A cocktail party was featured 
before the dance for the members 
of the club at the home of Mrs. 
Ora Lee Price, one of the co- 

Most of the guests arrived near 
midnight and enjoyed themselves 
until the wee sma' hours.

Spot," the stage curtains were 
drawn back and there, as was 
most befitting, Lieut. McDuff, the 
president, presided behind the 
bar as host and dispenser with 
the members and other officers 
arrayed in front in a partaking

manager and Lieut. L. McDuff, 
president, wearing white suits, 
shoes, alternating white and yel- 
low four-in-hand ties, London 
tan shirts and yellow bouton-

a cool June evening with one of 
the most popular beauties of 
this city and tied the knot that 
will bring him eternal bliss. Mr. 
Reed who has been an employee 
of the Southern Pacific Dining 
Car Department for the past 25- 
years quietly went about his bus- 
iness and wooed and won t h e 
hand of Mrs. Alleen Matthews, a 
former Pullman maid who op- 
erated on the Los Angeles Lim- 
ited between this city and Chi- 
cago. Mrs. Matthews is the sis- 
ter of Mrs. Lawrence C 1 o y e s, 
popular Union Pacific buffet por- 
ter and resided with her daugh- 
ter at 1562 W. 35th place. 

Strange as it may seem, Mr. 
and Mrs. Cloyd found romance 
several years ago in that quaint 
little artistic town, Carmel By 
The Sea, and surprised all those 
in railroad circles who knew 
them when they announced that 
they had married at Carmel. 

Mrs. Reed has a beautiful 
daughter who will graduate from 
Polytechnic high school this 
week and further add to the 
comfort of their new home, 3904 
Zamora street. 

While down at Carmel By The 
Sea the newly weds were the 
guests at breakfast of Mr. and 
Mrs. Edward Jackson of Pebble 
Beach who also were the best 
man and woman at the wedding. 
Mrs. Carl Harris was also a 
breakfast guest and a very de- 
lightful time was h^ by all.

One of the most adroit hostesses in Los Angeles, little Misr 
Beverly Jean Johnson, who asks to be called "Jeanie", celebrated 
her fourth birthday last Sunday, June 14th, at her parent's home, 
1512% West 36th Street, at one of the cleverest parties a youngster 
has ever had. Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Johnson, the fond young 
parents, had everything there for*been arranged for them by mem- 

Club honors bride-elect 
with linen shower 

The Les Marionettes, popular 
social club in the city, entertained 
Friday, June 12, in honor of Miss 
Mammie Mars, whose marriage 
to Mr. Mack (Dinty 1 Moore, will 
take place on June 28. 

Held at the home of Misses 
Ruth Elam and Vivian Lee. 20 
guests were present and bridge 
and pokeno were played. 

All the lovely and most useful 
gifts were opened, after which a 
Dutch lunch was partaken of, 
which was served buffet style 
and arranged very artistically. 

Mrs. Pearl Smith of 133 West 
45th street entertained the 12-33 
Bridge club Saturday with a 
well appointed luncheon. Covers 
were laid for twentv. 

Mrs, Edith Wilkinson. Melvin 
White, Mr. and Mrs. P. Mickens, 
and Mrs. Mary White spent the 
week end in the city with re- 
latives and friends. 

a good time for the kiddies, and 
judging by the screams and 
laughter, they had one. Beverly 
Jean, dressed in nink organide, 
met each guest a^ she arrived, 
promptly took the package the 
guests brought, and proceeded to 
entertain with games in the yard. 
When the last guest had arriv- 
ed, luncheon was served, topped 
off by the children's favorite 
dessert, ice cream and cake. In- 
dividual cakes for each child par- 
ticularly held their attention be- 
cause of the candle on each, 
which when lighted, made each 
eager little face glow with ex- 
citement and pleasure. The 
luncheon table was beautifully 
decorated with decorations of 
pink, green and white, w i t h a 
pink and white birthday cake 
gracing the center. Over a dozen 
vari-colored balloons were at- 
tached to the chandelier and be- 
side each plate was a pink horn. 
The pictured placecards were the 
last touch in sophistication. 

Following luncheon games for 
prizes were played in the back- 
yard, with little Miss Wana- 
tanka Zomora walking away 
with the prize for the footrace, 
and almost winning the prize for 
jumping, which, however, went 
to little Miss Juanita Williams. 

Guests included: Joyce Overr, 
Marianne Brazley, Barbara Jean 
and Diane Watson, Diane Lewis, 
Marie Foster, Juanita Williams, 
June and Jacqueline Matthews, 
Bonnie Diane Maxwell, Lava- 
reese Phelps, Catherine Allen, 
Wanatanka Zomora and Joan 

The taking of pictures ended a 
very, very pleasant afternoon for 
a snice a group of kiddies ever 


The Whats-Your-Bidders got 
together on last Saturday eve., 
June 13, for a real good time, at 
the home of its treasurer, Mrs. 
Wilberta Hosmon, 760 W. 17th 
street, at the regular semi- 
monthly meeting. 

The hostess who is an excel- 
lent cook, served first, and every- 
thing was certainly delicious. On 
the pretext that she wanted Mrs. 
Emma Taylor, the club's most 
recent bride, and Miss Gladyce 
Greenaway, bride of this month, 
to assist in the kitchen, the pair 
were enticed into the dining 
room where dainty packages 
told that a kitchen shower had 

bers of the club. There were all 
kinds of useful things which cer- 
tainly will come in handy. It 
seems that brides get a break? 
This was Mrs. Taylor's first ap- 
pearance since her marriage the 
same week, and her wedding 
ring was duly admired by the 
group with many "oh's" and 

When things settled back to 
normalcy, bridge was played; 
with prizes going to Miss Bessie 
Hosmon (that's twice in a row 
Bessie), first; and consolation tc 
Miss Dolores Burdine. 

Guests included Miss Leota 
Jones, and her houseguest of the 
week end. Miss Dolores Burdine 
of Long Beach, Calif.

ried folk" on Sunday, June 28. 

If you happen to see Ye Ed 
"hanging around Ralph Porter's 
Flower Shop at 41st and Central, 
you know we're in deep confer- 
ence, for Ralph is decorating the 
garden for the "big day'' and 
says he's really going to do hii 
stuff. Ralph is an artist to h 1 s 
fingertips, and if we're able tc 
see and appreciate his efforts on 
the day. which is June 28th, 
(what with the excitement 'n 
everything! we know it will be 
simply gorgeous. Talking about 
the wedding, we're already quite 
jittery, and liable to spilling 
things, forgetting things, etc. 
Only the other day, we got lock- 
ed out ifor the 50th time) of the 
apartment, and were planning on 
calling the polite and fire station, 
when we were able to secure a 
ladder which would reach our 
apartment and thus get in. Its a 
great world, if you know how to 
take it! We'll see you next week. 
maybe. We're on our vacation 
and might be out o ftown. Have 
a good time while we're gone!

"Is the Universe, including 
Man. Evolved by Atomic Force?" 
This is the subject of the Lesson- 
Setmon on Sunday m all branch- 
es of The Mothe'r Church. The 
First Church of Christ. Scientist, 
in Boston, Mass. The Golden 
Text IS from the Proverbs: "The 
Lord by wisdom hath founded 
the earth by understanding hath 
he established the heavens.'' 

.\mong the Bible pitations in 
the Lesson-Sermon '• are these 
verses from the Gospel of John: 
"In the beginning was the Word, 
and the Word was with G<.>d, and 
the Word was God. ... All 
things were m.ade by him; and 
without him was not any thing 
made that was made. In him/was 
life: and the life was the ^ight 
of men. And the light shineth 
m darkness: and the darkness 
com.prehended it not.'' 

A. correlative passage from the 
Christian Science textbook. "Sci- 
ence and Health with Key to the 
Scriptures." by Mary Baker Eddy, 
states: "Divine Science, the Word 
of God, saith to the darkness 
upon the face of error. 'God is 
All-m-all' and the light of ever- 
present Love Ulummes the uni- 
verse. Hence the eternal wonder 
— that infmite space is peopled 
with God's ideas, reflecting Him 
in countless soiritual forms.''

Brotherbod Notes 

The Brotherhood met last 
Thursday night with Brother 
Robert E. Lee on 30th street. 
Good or bad excuses kept many 
of the brothers away from meet- 
ing but thanks to the spirit of 
.duty in some of us and the spir- 
it of service in others, there 
were enough present to hold a 
very fine meeting. "The Brother- 
hood meetings are snll very live 
occasions despite the fact that we 
aer reported to be dead. 

We were agreebly surprised to 
have Brother Llopis present and 
his presence was the incentive of 
a very lively discussion whicli 
caused an otherwise dull meet- 
ing to turn into one of interest. 

The meeting of June 18 will be 
held at the residence of Brother 
J. R. Williams, 520 30th street. 

We are enjoyed to learn that 
our god pastor. Brother Lewis, 
will return to the city the latter 
prrt of the present week no we 
are sure he will be with us at 
Brother Williams next Thursday 

The Bethel Brotherhood finds 
itself hard pressed to maintain 
its record among the Church 
Brotherhoods of the city, what 
with the Calvary Brothers put- 
ting on a series of meetings pre- 
.^enting the busines,s and profes- 
sional people to the public and 
the Bethel Baptist Brothers hold- 
ing a series of meetings for two 
weeks during the dedication of 
their beautiful new building at 
29th and Clay. However, we are 
not discouraged nor is our en- 
thusiasm dampened. We intend 
to carry on for our own beloved 
church still trusting our Lord to 
preserve and prosper us.

Edna Harris, Lucky Stewart Get 


FrMoy, JiHM 19, 193$ 


First of RKO 



(NejTo Press Bureau) 
. HOLLYWOOD, June 19— Law- 
rence "Lucky" Stewart, went 
thru the scenes of the current 
RKO studio production "Samp- 
son and Delilah" this week jn 
the role of Sampson instead of 
Jess Lee Brooks stellar lead in 
the current Federal Theatre Pro- 
jects stage play "Noah" at the 
Mayan theatre. Brooks elected to 
stand by th etheatrical play that 
had just opende. Stewart, got off 
to a good start and indications 
are that he will manage tw turn 
in a very fine characteri«ation of 

Edna Harris, beautiful femme 
lead of both the stage arid screen 
versions of the Green Pastures, 
has the other starring role in the 
eventful filming of "Sampson 
and Delilah". Miss Harris will be 
permitted to bring to the screen 
when the picture is completed all 
of her heralded beauty unmarred 
by any tone down makeup. 

"Sampson and Delilah" is the 
first of a series of semi-Biblical 
features recently acquired by R. 
K. O. Radio studio. It marks the 
most radical departure in two- 
reel film production in many 
years, RKO Radio will make a 
series of folk-lore pictures with 
an all-colored cast on its 1936-37 

"Daniel in the Lions' Den", 
"Jonah and the Whale" and 
"David and Goliath" are schedul- 
ed among those to follow, 'Samp- 
son and Delilah". 

"This series will deal with the 
Southern Negro's conception of

(Negro Press Bureau) 

The current floor revue which 
opened Tuesday night at the 
Club Alabam, proved to be one 
of the best of a series of smash- 
ing hits scored by producer Dick- 
ie Walker. A first night crowd 
roared its approval at the amaz- 
ing spectacle in dance and cos- 
tumes woven together into a 
magnificent sp)ectacle by the 
>:)ever Walker fellow. The cur- 
rent revue is supposed to be his 
swan song as producer at the 
popular after yawning spot. 

Of course nil 'he creoit for 
the hit, car not be shfwtred ucon 
the brow of the producer. S-^me 
snace must '■•e let', to mention the 
names of the cast of ibc mar- 
v/elous extrj/i:; ir.:'a. Their num- 
bers and methods of entertain- 
ingly expressing t li e intricate 
routines must be related. As .s 
identical of most Dickie Walker 
produced shows, he and the 
sparkling comedienne and eccen- 
tric dance star Ernestine Porter 
star the fast moving bill. 

The Three Rockets, long tall 
masters of tap rhythm dance, 
closely follow in the stellar line- 
up, betty Treadville, buxom 
smgii.g star, was excellently 
SDotted on the bill. Bobby Ste- 
vens, a clever hoofing gent, held 
(iowri the Em Cee mike, while 
Loreii70 Flennoy's orch supplied 
the torrid tunes for the show that 
saw a bevy of beautiful brown 
cJiorines marching through their 

hotcha hip shaking paces. 

The show caught by this re- 
viewer was that of the underside, 
that is, the first show at 11:00 p. 
m. The show opens with the 
Rockets filling the stage flanked 
by chorines. Their movements 
are fast and rhythmic. Betty 
Treadville, blues shouting sing- 
er, joins the group on stage, 
singing "Come On Baby Let's 
Go Ballyhoo." When the stage is 
proF>erly set producer Walker 
comes on and the lights in the 
house are extinguished. The 
dancers are now mere phospho- 
rescent nymphs, heard tapping 
out their dance routine with 

flashing white shoes, jacquets 
and caps. This number is very 
beautiful and draws a heavy 

Dickie Walker appears in a 
difficult solo dance number with 
the chorus tripping their light 
fantastic and C. L. Burke doing 
some mighty fine -ocalizing in 
the immediate background. Flora 
Bordeaux, the old reliable comic, 
relief, teams with Bobby Stevens 
to put over their own method of 
doing Louis Armstrong's "Old 
Rockin' Chair" number. Floto ap- 
pears on stage in an appropriate 
character. They close their duo 
with plenty of punch, with some

The Rockets, coming on again 
reveal that they are not merely 
versatile dancers, but show that 
they possess the proper wardrobe 
needed to meet the requirements 
of their many dance moods. Their 
costumes are designed to enhcuice

given the patrons a mighty fine

Rain grants 
Max reprieve 

(Special to Negro Press Bureanl 

NEW YORK. June 18. — The 
sidewalks and even the streets of 
grand carnival of carnival towns, 
'.vere almost literally jammed to 
the apartment house walls with 
milling out-of-town fans, attract- 
ed here periodically by the com- 
l\ne<i ballyhoo magic of Mike 
Jacobs, the promoter and the 
pulverizing brown fists of the re- 
.T-.arkable Joe Louis. Rain, which 
fell durmg the day in sufficient 
drizzles to halt the big show 
scheduled for the Yankee base- 
ball park, failed however, to 
dampen the LouL-- nad zealots' 
enthusiasm for the idolistic 

Of course, many of the boys 
from, way distance climes like 
Chicago. Br way out m the far. 
far west like Los Angeles and 
Sa.n Fra.ncisco. were keenly dis- 
appointed at the delay. It cost 
the boys from the hinterlands 
plenty of mor.ey to loaf around 
the big town. However, they 
seem to have the "will" and the 
"way" and are m no immediate 
danger of starving. 

Joe Louis is favored with some 
of the most ridiculous odds in 
the historv' of modern big time 
fight contest. Its irr.possi'ole to 
get a thousand dollars bet against 
Louis with m.ost any kind of

odds. There simply are no taker;. 
whatsoever. People with smart 
money are steering clear of the 
huge Nazi lest they take sympa- 
thy with him and evntually part 
with their wads. It's hard to find 
anyone here with money to see 
this man win who back in 1925 
was K.O.ed by Larry Gaines, at 
anv odds. 

Louis tipped the beams at 198 
yesterday for the fracas while 
Schmeling registered 193 when 
.he hopped on the scales. The 
fight is expected to draw in the 
neighborhood of S750.000. Both 
battlers split 30 per cent of the 
gross. Ten per cent goes for the 
Hearst Milk Fund, and the pro- 
moters will do the best they can 
with the rest. The world is poised 
just for one thing. It is certain 
that the man Schmeling is doom- 
ed, even as was Hauptmann. This 
reprieve granted by the goodness 
of Pluvius, is likewise shonlived. 
"What round will the doomed 
man fall." the world awaits to- 
night's verdict to know.

The Marines have landed on 
the screen again, this time in a 
heart thumping, comedy-filled 
romantic drama called "Pride of 
the Marines'' which starts at the 
Tivoli Theatre Sundaj-. 

Filmed in its entirety at the 
United States Marine Base at 
San Diego, "Pride of the Ma- 
rines" weaves a cleverly built 
and diverted story into the thrill- 
ing fabric of America's military 

Charles Bickford heads the 
large cast as the gruff, sentimen- 
tal leatherneck who adopts a 
ten-year-old orphan lad and 
brings him to the Marine Base to 
live. Florence Rice appears op- 
posite Bickford as the girl the 
brawny Marine wants to marry 
with Robert Allen seen as a rival 
suitor. The big surprise in the 
film, as might be surmised, is 
tne Jovable. heart-winning per- 
formance of little Billy Burrud, 
who created that marvelous little 
lame urchin in "Three Kids and 
a Queen. " 

Sparkling with delightful hu- 
mor, replete with droU situations 
and tender romance. "Pr! ' of 
the Marines" offers an evening 
of unmatched entertainment. The 
principals perform with sincer- 
ity and conviction; the screen 
play by Harold Shumate taps 
the emotions with its gay humor 
and exciting drama: and direction 
of D. Ross Lederman is expert 
and understanding. 

The authentic picturization of 
the military maneuvers of the 
Sixth Regiment of United States 
Marines, some 2.600 of the na- 
tion's finest fighting men, pro- 
vides a climactic burst of color. 
thrills and military pageantry.

Detective Department. His repu- 
tation is high and he is no doubt 
honest and efficient. The number 
on the force there is about equal 
to the number in Los Angeles, 
according to my information, al- 
though the population of Har- 
lem Is seven or eight times that 
of Los Angeles. 
No Atlanta Peace Officers 

In some of the cities, the num- 
ber on the police force is negli- 
gible. In Atlanta, where perhaps 
more than one person out of 
every four in the city, is of the 
Negro race, there is not a single 
peace officer in the City, County 
or Government service. I am con- 
vinced that the group is as much 
to blame for this as anyone else. 

For 10-years now, the .'Atlanta 
School of Social Service has been 
turning out graduates prepared 
to deal with social problems, in- 
cluding police work, and many 

proportionate to our numbers, '^our representation here is high.f 

of these graduates are now do 
ing juvenile work and crime pre- 
vention work and no doubt pro- 
bation work etc. in various cities. 
Los Angeles, in this particular, is 
known throughout the country 
for having been one of the first 
cities to have race woman a full 
pledged member of the police de- 
partment, and for having had 
very competent efficient proba- 
tion officers for a long time. Mrs. 
Lucille Shelton, of the Crime 
Prevention Bureau is from At- 
lanta, where she is well known, 
and several of our Detectives 
having made trips in the East 
have left a lasting impression of 
the high esteem in which our 
race members function as peace 
officers out here. 

Some of the larger cities use 
peace officers as a matter of 
course, but political pressure and 
fear too often interfere to limit 
the number, and finally to re- 
strict functioning of these men 
to their highest capacity. 

The most striking thing so far 
a.s law enforcement is concerned, 
that we noticed, is the fact that 
in many of the large cities, little 
or no prosecution is had of many 
crimes of violence when com- 
mitted by Negroes upon Negroes. 

This is not what we might call 
In Atlanta, forty-five homicides 
had been reported of Negroes, by 
Negroes, up until the first of 
June, and but few arrests had 
been made. I think it will be ad- 
mitted by all, that color is no 
bar for prosecution in wrong do- 
ing, either in Los Angeles, or any 
other city. And the police here, 
make a real investigation in an 
effort to apprehend a guilty per- 
son and bring him to the Bar of 
L. A. Better off PoUtically 

Politically, we in Los Angeles 
are much better off than at first 
blush it would seem that we are 
Perhaps the best job held by one 
of our group is the office of com- 
missioner, held by Mr. Delaney 
in New York. It pays $10,500.00 a 
year, and he has the right to re- 
vise or correct tax assessments m 
the richest political subdivision 
in the world. 

Ferdinand Q. Morton still holds 
his position as Civil Service Com- 
misisoner, and there are two 
Magistrates corresponding to our 
Municipal Court Judges. We sat 
with Judge Toney on the Bench, 
and enjoyed having explained to 
us the procedure of New York 
Municipal Court. These are of 
course not all of the offices, but 

L. A. Race 
Better Off 

in political terms, either appoin- 
tive or elective. It would seem to 
me we are on a sounder basis for 
reason of the fact that the offices 
held by our group here, smack of 
a little more security. Our deputy 
assessors and clerks, as well as 
our juvenile officers, our police 
and in fact all of our employees 
of City, County and State subdi- 
visions are on Civil 3ervice, and 
enjoy a security from molesta- 
tion and discharge, which is more 
extensive than that of many oth- 
er cities, and which is of a value 

which can hardly be computed. 

The percentage of the city bud- 
get in Los Angeles, which is paid 
to city employees of our group is 
very high indeei;!, and speaking 
of our Fire Department, its func- 
tioning as to personnel and in 
public esteem, is not to be ex- 
celled anywhere, so far as we 
could see.

"For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised: he also is to be feared above all gods." — I CHRONICLES 16:25. 

Bishop William T. Vernon, matchless Kansas ora- 
tor, educator and statesman, assures the California 
Eagle that he will trail Congressman Mitchell on his 
visit to the coast. Bishop Vernon was registrar of the 
United States Treasury on his last visit to California 
and a warm welcome awaits him. 


As the big Republican Notional Convention 
struck up the song "Glory, Glory, Hallelujah," the 
strains of which fires the soul of every true Kansan, 
United States Senator Arthur Capper, delegate-at- 
large, graciously yielded his seat in the delegation to 
Dr. McKinley Thomas of Leavenworth. Then things 
began to happen in real earnest among the Kansans, 
Gov. Alf M. London sent a request that Perry W. 
Howard of Mississippi follow Hamilton in seconding 
his nomination. 

The Kansas Senator has long been a friend of 
Negroes and has staunchly supported legislation 
which he deemed to be of particular interest to his 
clients without regard to race, color or creed. Senator 
Capper is one of the vice presidents of the N. A. A. 
C. P. and holds membership on its notional board of 


Neb., was arrested June 25, 1935 for criminal assault 
on an 1 1 -year-old colored girl. The case hung fire in 
the courts for nearly a year, and came to trial last 
Tuesday. Following the alleged assault the child was 
examined by Dr. Wesley Jones who reported that at- 
tack had taken place and that the child hod been 
mistreated. Reports soy the county attorney's office 
presented an air-tight case against the defendant 
only to hove a jury return a verdict of "not guilty." 
In mob-ridden Alabama, nine Negro boys were 
sentenced to death because of an alleged attack 
upon two white prostitutes in face of the fact that 
one of the alleged victims and a male companion who 
was with the girls at the time swore thot the boys hod 
not molested them. Now comes Omaha in the spot- 
light with what is said to have been a proven case by 
freeing the culprit. The man v/cs white and the vic- 
tim of his beastly lust happened to be black. The 

white man is h 1 on "justice" until the shoe is 

shifted to his own foot. Omaha citizens declare that 
the verdict means that the whites of the town believe 
that no one can be guilty of rope save a Negro. 

Grains O'

Parked at 12th and Central 
last Saturday night, recalled the 
days of that one-time hustling 
crossway. It was there more than 
a decade ago I set sail on the frail 
Dark of Negro journalism flying 
the colors of ex- Assemblyman F. 
M. Roberts. 

While chatting with a long- 
time habitue of the comer, one 
of the forgotten creatures stop- 
ped, asked a dime of the chap to 
add fuel to her already brightly 
burning flames. Glib of tongue, 
she bared her troubled soul m 
lurid language. 

"... Yeah. I'm a common 
prostitute, one of the best on 
this beat . . . broke now, but I'll 
have plenty before morning . . . 
catch 'em all-white, black, 
makes no difference. ..." 

Then the thunderbolt: 
"... But see me now' (I 
scanned her face more closely — 
pleasant, intelligent, despite the 
tell-tale marks). You might not 
believe it but I'm well educated 
— graduated from a midwestem 
teachers' college, taught school

ing all over the country, and now 
here I am in Los Angeles. . . . ' 

Silence. Rumblings of passmg 
street cars, grinding, screeching, 
groaning of whirring motors 
were unheard. The other fellow 
knew about her trafficking but 
nothing of her past, he told me 

"... Come on. you cheap 

skate, cut loose from that dime — 
I got to have a drink to get my 
gauge up again! You got me to 
thinking. I always do when I get 
to talking about what I have 
been. You see. my mother and 
father died within an hour of 
each other the same night . . . 
they spent a lot of money on me 
. . . studied the piano too. . . . 
Yes. I used to play for my 
church. Ain't that funny? Seeing 
me now you'd never guess it. . . . 
And, don't you know, one day I 
ran into the principal under 
whom I taught right here on the 
Avenue. I was higher'n a kite 
and just puffing away on a cigar- 
ette. He spoke, but I didn't recog- 
nize him — then rubbed my eyes 
as he called me by my first name. 
Lord. I felt awful— don't know 
how I got away from him. . . . 
Now I'll take that dime. I'm get- 
ting the jittersi'' 

Pity moved my hand towards 
my pocket, but stopped as the 
man said: "You've had enough. 
Better get to 'work'." 

"Why. you no good , 

I'll catch you one of these days 
when you're on your uppers. I 
wouldn't have asked you, but I 
gave all the money I had — ten 
dollars — to my boy a little while 
ago to go cabaret ing and " 

"You got a son?" the man in- 

"Sure as h 1 I have. He's 

fine too. Here on his vacation 

from university. Studying 

to be a doctor. He saw me talking 
to a peck and asked about it. I 
said: 'Oh, baby, that's just my 
insurance man!' He don't know 

what his mama is. and I'm d d 

if I'll let him find out. Sending 
him away Monday before he 
gets wise. I ain't got no place for 
him to stay anyhow — sure can't 
stay in my dump. I won't even 
let him come to see me. But. God, 
I want him with me so bad! He's 
so smart and fine and always 
wanted to be a doctor, and he's 
going to, too, 'cause his mama 
knows her stuff. ..." 

She squinted an eye meaningly. 

■Well. I got to get on the job — 
bet I've already missed five or 
si.x dollars talking to you and 
didn't even get a drmk." 

Pulling her frayed coat about 
her. shrugging her shoulders, 
she turned to go. 

"Yeah, I used to be a teacher, 
too, just like you!" she flung 
back at me, staggering away into 
the night. 



When the Republican party in national conven- 
tion last Friday named Governor Alf M. London as 
its stondordbearer, a long stride was mode toward a 
comeback to the principles that hove safeguarded 
the people Cfr\d upon which foundatoin has been 
builded the greatest nation on earth. 

The Kansas governor comes from the ranks of 
the great common people. He has endured the hard- 
ships of the rugged pioneer Kansans; suffered with 
them through hot winds, cyclones, grasshoppers and 
floods, and contributed his part in the growth and de- 
velopment of his great oil fields ond other industries 
that hove changed the term "Bleeding Kansas" to 
"Blessed Kansas." Today the state blossoms as the 
rose. Through all of the trials and hardships of de- 
pression Gov. London has been able to keep the stote 
off the red side of the ledger with a balanced budget. 
His sofe, sane business methods attracted the eyes of 
the nation, who crowned him with the nomination 
for president. 

With Col. Knox, Chicago publisher, as vice pres- 
idential candidate and John D. M. Hamilton handl- 
ing the national chairmanship, things look brighter 
for a sweeping Republican victory at the coming 


All men and races look alike through the lenses 
of the dauntless District Attorney's glasses. Moral 
worth and true character is the standard by which he 
measures fellow humans, and by action, word and 
deed has proven thus to be true under circumstances 
that ofttimes were trying indeed. ' 

During his first term in office Mr. Fitts was 
seized with the urge that the colored group should 
have representation on the Districtf Attorney's staff, 
although none of his predecessors had even mode a 
friendly gesture in that direction. Realizing that he 
was venturing on thin ice, he threw sentiment and 
precedent to the winds, and began to cost about for 
a suitable colored attorney for a place on his staff. 
The mantel fell upon the shoulders of the late lam- 
ented Leon Whittaker, brilliant young barrister who 
hod recently graduated from U. C. A slight stir was 
created but Fitts promptly let all objectors know 
that he was the boss and color agitation ceased. 
Whittaker made good, won the admiration and re- 
spect of the entire staff and those on the outside who 
had criticised the District Attorney for appointing a 
colored deputy. Mr. Whittoker's untimely passing 
was keenly felt by his chief who frequently refers to 
his ability and manly character before audiences in 
which no Negroes are present. 

Just recently he said: "An act in my life of which 
I'll always be proud was the appointment of Leon 
Whittaker. He was not only a keen, alert lawyer, but 
a fine, upright Christian gentleman and a credit to 
all races. Since then I have appointed young Charles 
Matthews, who is oil that can be said of Mr. Whit-
