Westside Beauty Ends Lite 

TBullet thru 

gnOSE BIBDS, commMiIy 

called sea^u^ls or beach 
■cavengets, serre a definite 
purpose. Their mission, it 
wans, i: to rid the ocean, 
Bunk lands, and svamp places 
of decayed bodies of animals, 
mammals, and insects. So me- 
ticulous are they* in the dis- 
durge of their duty, that the 
law fumLshes protection 
a^iinst their distruction. 

Of late, in political cam- 
paigns, we seem to be develop- 
ing a new type of scavenger. 

It may be appropriate to 
designate them as human 
acavengers-but I don't want 
to insinuate that they are in 
the same -class with the sea 
gulls, for the gulls do not cre- 
ate the stench-their work is 
to destroy what man creates. 

In the attempt to destroy 
character and reputation these 
human scavengers foist their 
decayed and festered thoughts 
upon the public and in the 
same breath would have the 
public believe that they are 
missionaries for decency. 

Merrily they roll along life's 
•tream, taking little thought 
of conditions about them un- 
til the coming of a political 
campaign, such as the election 
of a city or county official. 
Then, like the guUs on the 
beach, after the unloading <?f 
decayed, foods, they swoop 
down and-Jwith. raucous . 
jcreeches and much aimless 
flapping of wings upon the de- 
fenseless air, they proc€«i to 
tear and rend 'asunder in a 
perfect fury of destruction. 

As self-styled political -pure- 
in-hearts they crash in upon 
the one track minds of the peo- 
ple, telling them that their 
community is wreaking m the 
Stench of vice, wailowmg in 
the muck of corruption, un- 
suitable, "under the present 
admkiistration", as a place m 
which to rear their children, 
\mwholesome for their woman- 
hood, and in grievious need of 
a cleaning from the front door 
to the b»Gk stoop ... ^ 

And, in the vernacular of 
the day, the sad part about it 
is that those who think not for 
themselves believe these de- 
stroyers of confidences, beUeve 
them sincere in their desire to 
make the city a cleaner place 
in which to live and rear their 
(^droi. ^, ^ 

The public does not see that 
if these political mushrooms 
were loyal to the ^ruth which 
they pretend to propound, 
tirey would not wait for a poli- 
tical campaign to start theu: 


As a matter of fact, com- 
ing close to home, those who 
are accusing the office holders 
of dereliction in office with re- 
gard to conditions on the East- 
side, are not concerned about 
[ conditions! „ i, ^ ^t. 

' If they would teU the truth, 
theV would tell you what they 
^ is MONEY . • •. and 
money that they don't mtead 
to work for. 

m. and Mrs. Citizen, if you 
want to know who they are, 
that are sailing you out poli- 
tically, watch that felloe, 
dressed in the height of f^h 
ion. wtth nothing to do bu 
move from one comer to an- 
other during his twelve hour 
day, or the loud speaker, who 
knovw everything about every- 
body's business, except his 
own. Watch him, who howls 
about the beam in someone s 
eye, to keep you from seeing 
tiie mote in his. j 

I know individual* who nave 
promised support to both 
mayorality candidates for a 
price which they received «nd 
TOdceted, but at the present 
are loudly supporting the last 
mill, who paid, and condemn- 
ing all those supporters of the 
one with whom they started 
but deserted for a higher price 
nr bigger pfwrijses. '^ ^ , ■

Justices' 5 to 
4 vote 
frees Angelo 

Young Community will 
not have to serve a 10- 
20 year sentence in Go. 

30. (ANP) — Decision by 
the U. S. Supreme Court 
on Angelo Herndon's 
case, delayed long enough 
to let the young Commun- 
ist's book, "Let Me Live", 
get good circulation, 
was rendered Monday 
with the justices, by a 5 to 

4 vote, ruling for Herndon and 
against the State of Georgia. 

This means that the youth who 
"was convicted under an old anti- 
insurrection law will not have to 
serve his 18-20 year sentence on 
a Georgia chaingang. The na- 
tion's highest tribunal declared 
the statute "unconstitutional". 

Justite Roberts, who delivfered 
the majority decision, said the 
law "as applied and coo 
Georgia courts during 1 
trial does not furnish a t 
ly aacertain'kble ; stan> 
guilt" and "violates the 
tees of liberty embodiec 
14th AmendmeHt." \ 

The fact that Hemdort 
member of and an organ: 
the Communist party does 
tablish an attempt to inc' 
ers to insurrection," said 

The Georgia statute wa; 
ed in 1871. Herndon was 
ed eifter leading a protes 
lanta against a cut in rr 
propriations an<l convict ■ 
a long trial. His sente 
upheld twice by the : 
preme court but was n^ 

Herndon's book, "Let M 
'published in March, deso 
detail his life and the fa 
rounding his celebrated ' 
well as incarceration in' 
tower, Atlanta, and ende« 
note of questioning as to >» 
he would be freed by tl 
preme Court or sent to '\ 
death" on a Georgia chain.

On Gas,

(ANP)— Stepin Fetchit, famed 
lazy man of the screen, stepped 
on the gas Sunday while on a ' 
visit here with Harlem friends 
and while his car was traveling 
at a rapid rate a blow-out on one 
of his tires sent the car crashing 
into an elevated pillar. Serious- 
ly injured, Fetchit was removed 
to Harlem hospital where he was 
found suffering with a skull frac- 




NEW YORK, April 30. (ANP) 
—Check room girls are wonder- 
ing why it is that Stepin Fetchit, 
the cinema comedian tips the un- 
usual sum of $8 wher he visits 

a night <:lub. This is one of the 
highest tips on record for these 
girls and although they wonder 
over it, they never refuse Mr. 
Fetchit all the courtesies possible 
when he pays a welcome visit to 
the hot spots.

It is unnecessary for THE CALIFORNIA EAGLE

In the natter of tramsportation • 
by bus, -it is of interest to trace 
the history of its appearance and 
the result. In 1917, the Jitney 
Bus made its debut in Los An- 
geles with .an attitude .definitely 
unfavorable to Negroes. Matters 
bepame so 'acute ixfiia the feel- 
ing aroiued over uiis situation, 
that a race riot became imminenf, 
and was only averted by the fail- 
ure of the rumor^-to intimidatfe

Lincoln Holt Loid To Rest 

^ By Jcuin Fowler. ^ 

' All that was mortal pf James Lincolrf Holt,one of 
my dearest friends, lies oilit in beautiful Rosedale, the 
silent City of those who have finished their tosk. But 
.his soul, that was made iri the image and likeness of. 
God, has gone back to Goa\who gave it, 'There in the^ 
land of endless day he has\ joined that great host of 
friends and love<^®nes, wh<^re "we shall know as we 
are known and never more walk alone." 

As J sot and saw the ^ri^f stricken friends as they 
came to show their love and i^espect to his heart brok-, 
en companion, I sow the lines of genuine sorrow writ- 
ten on their faces. 

Link Holt hod a heart of gold. By his kindly, gen- 
erous notuce, his sympothitSe understanding, his 
deep devotion to his friends, and his unselfish interest 
in all those less fortunate than himself, he won the 
admiration, friendship and love of all classes ond rac- 
es of men. , . 

It was fitting that the pioneers, Roberts & Sons, 
should officiate. Old St. John's Lodge, the one Ben 
Talbot and my father loved so wel|, just a remnant of 
its former self, composed of men oh the yonder side of 
life, now going from East to West, each expecting to 
be called from labor to refreshment any time, was 
there for the last time to give the final honors to a 
Master Meson. \ 

The remains lay in state in the home oil Wednes- 
day afternoon and until Thursday npon, surrounded 
on every side by banks of fragrant flowers, mute ex- 
pressions of tender affections. Among the most elab- 
orate were the large baskets of pink roses and the sol- 
id white wreath, these were the gifts of Mrs. Alice 
Guthrie and Mrs. Connie Churchill, daughters of the 
late Walter B. Cline, life-long friends of Mrs. Holt. 

The choir of the First A. M. E. Zion Church sent 
a very pretty bosket of roses and lilies. 

The casket spray that come to the house with 
the remains was the tribute of a group of intimate 
friends, among them — the Graysons, Fowlers, Titus 
Alexanders, John Scotts, Van Williams, Florence 
Weimar, Daisy Wilson, John Banks, the Millers 
Thomas' ond others. The Garrbtts and the Clarence 
Jones' sent a pillow of roses, ferns and lilies. As the 
casket lay in church, it was covered with a blanket of 
yellow roses and ferns, the last tribute of the family. 

The funeral was held at old Eighth and Towne. 
It was simple, beautiful and impressive. 1 am sure I 
understand now how death can loose the string and 
how grave can be robbed of victory. 

From the very first moment after we entered the 
church, the sweet, mellow, pleading tones of the or- 
gan, the deep intonations of the Pastor as he read the 
lines of that most assuring passage of John's gospel, 
"I am the resurrection and the life, etc," the singing 
of the sweet old song "The Old Rugged Cross", the 
singing of "Lead, KindlyLight," by Mrs. Jessie Gray- 
son, the prayer by Rev. Isaacs, the eulogy by Rev. J. 
M. Brown, and the touching sermon by the Pastor, 
Rev. Collins, I realized that the great thought wove of 
love and genuine sympathy flowing from so many 
hearts to her needed them most just now, after all 
they ore the kind of prayers that God answers. 

There was a tranquility, a silence, a reverence, 
but no gloom. Truly death had lost. its. sting.. The 
services at the grove were conducted by the Masons. 

"liom standing upon the seashore. A ship at my 
side spreads her soils and starts for the blue ocean. 
She is an object of beauty and strength and I stand 
and wocth her until at length she is only a ribbon of 
white cloud just where the sea and sky come to min- 
gle with each other. 

'Then someone at rriy side says: fThere! She's 
gone.' Gone where? Gone from my sight — that is all . . 
and just at the moment when someone at my side 
soye: 'There! She is gone.' There ore other voices glad 
to take i^p the shout — "There! She comes!" 

As the sun was sinking In the West and the 
night shades were falling we stood at the grove side 
and sow all that was mortal of our dear friend whom 
we had known and loved for forty years returned to 
mother earth, we so i(3 in our hearts, "Good night. Link, 
See you in the morning."

That Municipal Bus Proposi- 
tion which will appear on the 
May 4 ballot will shoot taxes 
sky-high if enacted and also cre- 
ate a nuisance that would prove 
aggravating beyond endurance. 

Fred C. Williams shot ovfer 
some Shaw publicity last week 
that was really big time stuff. 
Fred knows the game from ev- 
'ery angle and Shaw forces were 
in big luck»to hook the versatile

Mayor determined to 
cut budget ten million 
dollars on Monday 

Determined to slaSh at least 
$10,000,000 from the city's new 
1937-38 budget, Mayor Frank L. 
Shaw late this week requested 
departmental heads to meet with 
him Monday, prepared to prune 
their departmental recommenda- 
tions at least 33 per cent. 

"City taxes wUl not go up," 
said Shaw, "and if possible, we 
intend to cut the 'tax rate. This 
can be done without curtailing 
public services which this city, 
alone in the nation, has for years 
been able to give its citizens and 
at tbe<same tbne reduce taxes. 

Iri releasing this promise of eco- 
nomy in city government exclu- 
sively to the Community Press, 
Mayor Shaw pointed out that ear- 
ly adoption of his City-County 
"tonsolidation program would 
save city tax payers nearly $9, 
000,000 annually, almost half of 
of the total city bttdget, now es- 
timated at $18,850,000. 

Departmental heads asked 
Mayor Shaw for $29,945,704, ac- 
cordinr-to figures released this 
week. The mayor asserted that he 
will shave this to a minimum of 

Need for additional police of- 
ficers in a city which is already 
undermanned, is pointed out in 
the Mayor's statement, which em- 
phasizes the fact that police pro- 
tection in Lfts Angeles excels all 
other city records of the nation. 
The department requested ma- 
terial increase in personnel and 
equipment, as compared 'vith a 
small increase requested by the 
fire department, already the fore- 
most of the nation. 

Special emphasis was laid in 
the Mayor's statement on recent 
discovery of oil in Harbor de- 
partment lands, revenue from 
which will materially assist in re- 
ducing the tax burden. 

"The Senate", Democratic or- 
ganization with headquarters at

No. 1 gets 
Shaw's O. K. 

Champions of Charter Amend- 
ment No. 1, which will be voted 
on at the city election next Tues- 
day, May 4th, are making a final 
appeal for support on the basis 
that it is "a humanitarian act* and j 
not a political issue." That be- 
cause its sole purpose is to ob- 
tain social security for all city 

Mayor Frank L. Shaw is on re- ! 
cord as approving the measure j 
unreservedly, holding that its | 
adoption is essential to get the i 
best out of the civU service sys- ! 
tem governing city employees. ■ 
Such civil leaders as John B. El- : 
liott, Margarete L. Clark, Joseph 
Scott, Marshall Stimson, Isadore 
B. Dockweiler and many other 
property owners and taxpayers 
are behind Amendment No. 1, as 
a needed step toward greater ef 

Four yef» ago I was a candidate for the office I novr'tk^ ■; 
Today I sea called upon to account for my stewardship of that 
office and;to ^lainjwhy I believe 1 should be retained in it ior the 
next four years. 

Wi>en first a candidate in 1933 my pledges in 
substance were: . 

To obtain for the citizens of Los Angeles their 
share of the New-Deal; to seek consc^Udation « 
essential functions Of the City and County govt 
emments as an economy measure; an immediate 
start on public works projects through City and 
Federal cooperation to relieve unemployment; an 
administration of sensible, intelligent and toler- 
ant leadership; reductioi^ of taxes and elimination 
of the special assessment' evils; greater .protection 
for the municipally-owned Muiiicipal Department 
of Water and Power; expansion of all publicly- 
Mayor Shaw owned utilities and the restoration of the morale 
3f City employees. * ' • 

Let us look at the recocd as proof that I carried out these pledges. 
Harmonious relations were built up with the Federal and State 
governments to^assure the City's proppr participation in all forward 
movements. A committee I appointied drafted and presented to the 
Board of Supervisors a feasible arid^ logical plan for City-County 
departmental consolidation with the plea that the voters be allowed 
to pass upon it— a plea that was voted down by a majority of the 
supervisors, including my opponent in. this mayoralty race. 

The Federal government invested $5,000,000 here in permanent 
ind substantial improvements. ApparenOy satisfied •with our con- 
duct of the work relief program, the Roosevelt administration has 
allocated $61,000,000 more for needed projects now imder construc- 
tion. Last year alone 40,000 heads of families w*re kept employed 
on this program. 

My selection of men and women to serve under me represents a 
cross-section of the most efficient, tolerant and intelligent minds in 
the city. Tax reduction has tut the rate 8 cents on the dollar, a total 
saving last year alone of $8,141,080 tb'taxpayers without hampering 
public service to citizens. Special assessments Have been reduced 
from $21,294,248 in 1932 to $1,315,834 today. 

Electric rates have been cut 10 per cent by the Municipal Water 
ind Power Bureau, whose expansion is assured through the recent 
icquisition of the Los Angeles Gag & Electric corporation. Despite 
■.he fact that taxes have been reduced City employees have had their 
Day increased to the pre-depression base. 

So much for the past four years. Now I am again called upon 
lo tell what I plan to do.' My objectives for the next.four years are: 
Continued cooperation with 4he Federal government to carry 
'orward the employment-relief pubUc works program. A compre- 
hensive program of 251 projecU to cost $286,000,000 and provide 
(vork for thousands of Los Angeles men is now on President Roose- 
/elfs desk for approval. Such a program involves a heavy demand 
'or materials, heavy hardware and other goods produced in this 

' ^Continued tax reduction and complete elimination of the special 
assessments evil. A continuation of- the fight to have the stete gaso- 
Jne tax and licence fees distributed between City and County on a' 

Der capita population basis. • , ^ ^ ij *•„„ 

The working out and placing in effect of a plan for Consolidation 
,f over-lapping departmental functions of the City and County gov- 
'rniLnt to effect a saving to City Taxpayers of $9,000,000 per year, 
rhe City budget last year was $18,000,000. ,If this program is carried 
3ut the taxpayer can picture for himself ^t savings m taxes that 

will accrue to him. ^ x^ i. i » ^i.a.«« 

This is my record and my platform. On the basis of pledge. 

fulfUled 1 ask that yon retain me as Mayor in order that I may con- 

iinue and complete this program.

will appear on a "litUe" ballot. 

Support. for the proposal was 
urged today in a statement is- 
sued by eight well-knoWn jani- 
tors and employes of the public

mending approval of the retire- 
ment proposition were Isaac Dav- 
is, Charles Johnson, Henderson 
Manning, Alex Prague, Peter 
Douglas Robert WUlis. Mary 
Fowlkes and Napoleon. Tukes. 

The staten»«it issued by these 
employes points out that social 
security, under the Federal and 
State systems, is denied school 
employes. The only chance the 
non-teching workers have for a 
guarantee of allowances in old 
age, depends upoh approval of 
the retirement plan on the "lit- 
tle" ballot, Tuesday, they made 

The statement issued by the 
eight workeris said that non- 
teaching employes ''have served 
the public faithfully for years, 
at wages sufficient only to pro- 
vide a living, ,. with little or no 
chance -to save for old age". 
"Under .he plan on which the 
people will vote Tuesday, work- 
ers in the school system will

he and his Watt's Good Neighbor

To Be A High School Graduate 

JACKSON, Miss., April 30. (ANP)— A living example of the 
truth of the old bromide, "It's never too late to learn," Jefferson 
Davis Tobias of Hinds county, 67-year-old and a senior student 
at Campbell high school here, will graduate on May 27, thus com- 
pleting another chapter in his educational career which began at 
the age of 12, six years after the death of his mother. He has 
pursued his high school studies for eight years.- 

Born on the same date as martyred President Linroln, Tobias 
has had tough sledding in his quest of learning, reference which 
elicited this comment: "When I was 22 years old. I couldn't read 
a newspaper. I mean I didn't know how to turn the p>ages because • 
I didn't know which way the writing went. But now, nobody can 
buy these eight years from me. They're the best work I have &ver 

During his long period of study at Campbell high, the aged 
student continued his work on his farm and daily walked to his 
classes rain or shine. He is extremely popular with his classmates, 
one of v/hom, a girl, expressing their high regard for Student To- 
bias, recently said "He has more class spirit than anyone. If we ' 
lack, money for fruit for the sick or something, he puts it in. He's 
always the first one up to the table with his class dues. He says he 
doesn't want us seniors to ever get behind, to ever owe anything." 

Tobias' plans for the future? He doesn't know, just yet. "Any- 
way", he says, "a man's got to stop and blow awhile after all these 
eight years."

'Madonna of the Flood' 
dikplavted at white jew-

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn.r April 
30. (By Katie E. Johnson for AN 
P) — A big canvas, painted in 

I , two days from a newspaper pic- 
ture of Rice Corothers, 28 year 
old colored artist, is now on dis- 
play at Edwards and LeBron, 
white jewelers, and is winning 
the highest possible praise from 
connisseurs of art in this sec- 

It is titled, 'The Flood Mar 
donna," and shows a despairing 
young white woman, victim of 
the recent Ohio and Mississippi 
river floods, with a small child 

' in her arms suckling at her nak- 
ed breast. 
The city's best known art col- 

> lector, restorer, creator and cri- 

' tic, O. K. LeBron, in whose jew- 
elry store the painting is dis- 
played calls it "'the fmest pic- 

;ture of a generation." 

Mr. LeBron has on display in 

I the same room a genuine and al- 

I most priceless hoffman, painted 
around 1605, and owns th $100,-

[exhibit at the Read house. 

f Called Fine 

"It's one of the finest things I 

?ever saw," he said of Mr. Coro- 

pther's canvas. 

The original picture was taken 
iby Jimmy Keen, a photographer 

for the Associated Press. It was 
greed throughout the country 

that it was "the" picture of all 

the thousands coming out of the 

recent flood. 

'I saw it in the paper," de- 
clared Mr. LeBron. "I just tore it 
put and called up Rice Coroth- 
prs. He came to the store and I 

;old him, here, take this and 
Vsaint a beautiful picture from

I And in two days he returned 

with the canvas done in rich ' 
'•eds, bliies and gray?-<^thing of j 
pristine beauty. ^^

LONDON, April 30. (By Fay 
M. Jackson for ANP) — Andre 
Van Acker, Belgian student 
and Marie Tinchant loved each 
other since childhood. Van 
Acker's family had looked up- 
on their affair with tolerance 
due "puppy love" and thought 
no more seriously about it. 
Came the Spring. And the 
date for their marriage, set se- 
cretly by the couple, appro- 

Marie, a happy girl, awoke 
in a London hotel m Chelsea 
last Saturday and dressed her- 
self for her v/edding, but . , . 
a few hours later she was 
weeping at the Register Office 
because her marriage to the 
man she loved had been ban- 
ned. Order to stop the wedding 
had been entered at the court 

Crying bitterly in the amis 
of her bridegroom, shj, left to 
see the Registrar-General and 
appeal against the order. .Two 
hours later she returned to her 
hotel with her father, still 
weeping. Then sl.e disappeared. 

M. Van Acker, father of the 
bridegroom, had applied to the 
BeljTiaa Embassy here ttf inter- 

vene. The Embassy took the 
matter up with Somerset 
House. A Belgian lawyer and 
iwo London solicitors were en- 
listed. Both parties are over 
21 -years of age. 

Behind these dramatic cir- 
cumstamces in what might oth-

not hear of the match." 

Marie's father, a 'West Indi- 
an tobacco merchant, said: "We 
shall return to Belgium and 
settle the matter there". 

But it will not be simple for 
the tragic young couple. Next 
week, Andre must present him- 
self to his own country for 
military service. Heavy penal- 
ties would follow his non-ap- 
pearance. His parents have only 
to prolong negotiations until 
then. After that, Andre is

LONDQ^, jAprjl 30..(ANF)— ^veral London hotels are putting

lish start theirj jini-crpw act, they have to begin with the Indians 
and go down tbe line of colonials to the Africans. Or yp, as you 
choose. There does not sedn to be half the emphasis on "race" here 

as there is' on "colpr". In other ^ 
words, all non- whites are given 
the boot in much the same fash- 
ion as old Ned, at ^lome;, is given 
it, all by himself. 

Recently, a man tried to find 
accomodations* tot an Indian 
friend. Several hotels gave him 
prices for the coronation period, 
but when he said that the visitor 
was an Indian, they became em- 
barrassed, and informedihJm that 
they were "full up , he* said. 

Here is what hotel managers 
and others said oin the subject 
this Week: 

Colonial Office: We have had 
nothing brought to our notice 
of a color ban.

discretion as far as all our vis-

of their color has never arisen.

Says Lincoln 
free sldves 

NP)-^ — Professor Mack B. Swear- 
ingeh. History instructor at Tu- 
lane University, became thS cen- 
ter of a heated controversy this 
week when he told members of 
his class that Abraham Lincoln's 
emancipation proclamation did 
not free a single slave. Prof. 
Sweaiingen contends: 

"There certainly was nothing 
m the (.lonstitutlon ,tbat gave 
the president power to free slaves 
in the United States. And Lin- 
coln himself contended that the 
South had really never left the 
Union, that secession was impos- 
sible. So the emancipation pro- 
clamation legally did not free a 
single slave, and the great eman- 
cipator did not emancipate any- 
body, by his contention".. 

The professor said his research 
had disclosed that the emanci- 
pation business was a ticklish 
matter for the Civil War presi- 
dent. There were four slave 
states in the North, and Lincoln 
couldn't afford to do anything to 
lose them. But to appeas^' the 
abolitionists and to give thel wai 
a moral appearance in Euj-ope, 
Prof. Ewearingen said, Lilicoln 
finally issued his proclamation. 

"The proclamation," continued 
the professor, "merely declared 
tliat slaves in Rebel territory 
were freed. The slave states in 
the Union were not affected un- 
til the Thirteenth Amendment 
was . ratified." Prof. Swearingen 
also disputed the common belief 
that Secession from the Union 
was advocated by plantation 
owners Who profited directly- by 
slavery, declaring that the oppo- 
site was true. 

He said that only about 50,000 
benefited directly from the slave 
system, that by far the greatest 
pirt of the population in the 
South was coitiposed of "poor 
whites," and "others who had to 
compete against slave labor, 
many of whom were kept at a 
bare subsistence Hying by the 
system and its effects."

Kissing may be the means of spreading tuberculosis germs. This 
statement was made this week by the Los Angeles Tuberculosis and 
Health association to explain why tuberculosis runs in families, a 
phase of its 10th annual early diagnosis campaign. The slogan of this 
year's campaign is "uncover tuberculosia by modem methods-let 
your doctor be your guide." 

Tuberculosis runs in families, 
not because it is inherited, but 
because children catch the dis- 

ease from an older member of the 
hotisehold who has it, although 
frejciuently not aware of the fact, 
b^ieving a cough to be bron- 
chitis or asflmna. If a few tuber- 
cufosis germs get into a healthy 
body no harm is likely to result 
because the bodjr fi^t> back. 


But if one lives daily with a care- 
less person who^has the disease, 
the danger is great. That is where 
kissing comet in. Coughing and 
spitting also spread tuberculosis. 
The association therefore ad- 
vises that every member of a 
family in which there is or has 
been a case of tuberculosis, 
should be examhred.

wiU help in the ones we know 
are yet to come". 

Wirsching, a native son, war 
veteran, lent a sympathetic ear 
to the tenant imion's proposal, 
officials say they do not expect 
much help from that source. 

H. L. Mitchell, Tenant Farm- 
ers' secretary, with headquart- 
ers here in Memphis, and Gard- 
iner Jackson, chairman of the na- 
tional committee for rural and 
social planning, see a greater 
future for the tenants under the 
Lewis CIO banner. At a recent 
convention on the Unjon, Chair- 
man Jackson declared:^My guess 
is, that if he (Lewis) succeeds

By Grace Fisher 

Let Us Awoken to the Need "I' 

The'ptiTchasc of the, stetement published in The Seiitinel last 
«^e«k by »9rae members of the Ciub Unique displayed the extreme 
Uek «f awareness of the purpose of this column. Mrs. C. A. Bass, 

3ur well-taown publisher and jffomoter of community progress 
-ad activity, is one ofjityp many leaders who has contributed to the 
cause of vocational gi^smce and control advanced by the National 
Urban League, by calling thru this paper to all dressmakers, tailors 
<» students int»esfed in the-saroe, to establish a cooperative jjoup 
for the purpose of collective effort toward educational, econf«iic 
and systematic procedure. This particular project in4h|uvopatfihal 
field started in, 1935, with a group of 24 young women who^crose 
clothing construction. ^ 

I wish to state that this colimin is without charge either by 
author or the editor. It is the combined effort to attract the 
dering youth tOAX^d one type of an integrated program. Sm 
endeavor requires far more than the personal intet«sts of ari^ 
■on or group of people. It requires, besides personal enthusii 
and effort, the cooperation, of every group and individual. It is t: 
that we lay aside pettiness and individual aggrandizement and think 
»f the problem which threatens the welfare of the future generation, 
rhe drastic increase in birth rate during the past five years means 
ihat we now must prepare so that the coming generation might live, 
rhere are too many forces at work for anyone to be so engrossed 
n his own personality not to adhere to some group. The Los An- 
teles Urban League, ably directed by Floyd C. Covington, opens an 
Exhaustive campaign. We also have the Los Angeles Civic League, 
leaded by Mrs. Loren MiDer. Again the extreme efforts of young 
Zlayion Russell, and numerous other individuals and groups offer \ 
tv*ryone and every group an opportunity to contribute toward the 
itAinment of occupational, economic and social equality. 

I What can an individual contribute? This question may be ans- 
vared by saying that the individual may become efficient in some 

jd of endeavor. A paramount example was brought out last Sun-

So responsible is her position that if one error were made on

'Opportunity is extended in all major fields of endeavor. In

sincere regrets to those attend-

Correction — 

In last week's Railroad Clatter, 
it seems that your busy,^itor 
got off to a Mvrong start pn Mrs.

it is therefore necesary at this

make a correction. Mrs. Ross 
Dean will not stop off in Oma- 
ha to visit her late husband's 
parents as reported,' as they have 
long since passed awaf^r. The er- 
ror was made through the fact 
that Ross had resided in Omaha,

LitUe man, you had two busy 
nights, so said the mothers or

of Troop 180, 
pride of the 
West-side, who 
returned Sun- 
day afternoon, 
all fagged out 
from their 
strenuous two 
days and nights 
encampment in 
Big Tahunga 

The Scouts 
left the city 
Friday evening 
ft^oveu listeue in five or six 
high-powared cars, piloted by 
their commander, Thos. J. Nel- 
son, wnom all the scouts idolize. 
Commander Nelson led the cara- 
van a inecry chase and took them 
at the rafe of between 60 and 70 


miles and hour all the way up, ^_„_. ^ _ _. „^

dusk. Camp was- pitched by the 
aid of flash lights and the Scouts 
retired for the night, but not to 
sleep, by any means, because the 
urchins started up the old-time 
ballad: "Sweet Adeline," and 
howled far into the wee hours 
ftlie morning. Commander Nel- 
son drove back to Los Angeles 
Friday night and left the camp 
in charge of Asst. Commander 
Owsley, who had his hands full. 
About 12 tents were pitched, 
making the camp appear like a 
tent city. The tents were in charge 
of Morris Peterson, Wolf Patrol, 
Harry Porter, Francis Robinson 
and Roy E. Hill. Robinson acted 
as the camp bugler and sounded 
taps and reviUe far too soon for 
all scouts present. On the return 
trip, Sunday afternoon, Robin- 
son gave the whole gang the 
creeps with a jar of all kinds of 
live demizens of the woods, such 
as lizzards, snakes and bugs. He 
said he was going to cut them 
all open and stuff them, and was 
going to take up the study of taxi- 
dermy. Everyone gave him a 
very wide berth. Several scouts 
took a 22 mile hike Saturday 
morning. They were Roy E. Hill, 
Francis Robinson, Carl and Mor- 
ris Petersen, Harry Porter, Aus- 
tin Burcheck and Marco Peterson. 
The boys returned to camp and 
ate up every thing in sight, but 
Rcbinson's wild lizzards. Five 
patrols made the eventful trip. 
C. K. Gardner Takes Moving 
Pictures of Scouts 

C. K. Gardner made the trip to 
Tahunga with his movie camera, 
and took many pictures of the 
scouts in various activities. It is 
his intention to show these pic- 
tures at a later date, providing 
that some of the scouts ugly 
muggs do not ruin his fUm. 
Sunday Visitors 

Scout Lamar Hill and family 
made the trip to camp on Sun- 
day in their high-powered Cadil- 
lac and were rewarded with a 
large load of tired, hungry scouts 
on their return trip. Carlos Loy- 
al WEts the sentinel, located on 
ihe out-skirts of the camp and 
met all incoming autos, directing 
them to the camp. Carlos didn't 
go for the mountain water and 
was moaning for some Los An- 
geles aqua. Among those who 
came up to csimp after the scouts 
were: Mr. J. L. Hill and famUy, 
Mgr. of the Angelus Funeral 
Home, Mr. Spearman, Mr. and 
Mrs. Mike Taylor, Mrs. Frank 
White, Mrs. Mike Taylor's beau- 
tiful daughter, also made the 
trip and was much in demand, 
making the scouts' beds. Com- 
mander Nelson's wife and baby 
daughter also came up Sunday.

"Coming Events Cast Their Shadows Before." — Your Dreams 

and their Meanings Revealed by Dr. Korda Van Ormond, D:D. 


Every one hks had in their life time strange and wonderful 
dreams — some of them have come true. Frequently they are 
at a complete loss to know what their dream meant, or how 
to apply the apparent message of the dream. Sometimes we only 
recall fragmente of the dream — a name — a word — a number will 
be imprinted upon the waking mind, and we wonder what it 
means. This is the purpose of my new book entitled SOLID 
GOLD DREAM BOOK, which lists such words and subjects 
as remain upon the memory after most of the dream has 
vanished. The new edition, just off the press, consists of in- 
terpretations of over 1,200 dreams, together with numbers 
which, apply fo each particular title of the dream. This book is 
a handsome piece of work, 116 pages of excellent quality pa- 
per, heavy gold paper cover, and is really worth SI. 00. 

The hostess at a party can provide an ideal entertainment, 
feature in reading and interpreting dreams for her guests.

Fay Jackson Interviews Benny Carter, famous 
band leader, on coronation music ideas; former 
New Yorker arranges for BBC, is great sax player 
LONDON, April 30. (By Fay M. Jackson for ANP)— If anybody 

puts pep into this Coronation business over here, it most certainly 

will be the Americans. 

And if anybody wUl make the old chariots swing hot and 

low with that tantalizing spontaneous rhythm generally associated 


with "us", it will be Benny Car- 
ter, arranger for Henry Hall's 
British Broadcasting orchestra. 

Sensing the fact that sometfiing 
ought to be done about the Coro- 
nation in general and BBC in 
particular, I called on Benny 
Carter in his smart Maidavale 
apartment, just prior to his leav- 
ing for Holland to begin a series 
of continental tours. 

His arrangements nude Henry 
Mall's orchestra of England from 
a middle class band to one of the 
best in the country. They prov- 
ed a delightful and wele<»ie le* 
lief from speeches of the Arcn- 
hishop of Canterbury, or the 

with his idea of Paradise, but at 
least they gave him a chance to 
keep in practice. 

After he began working for H. 
R. H., as ^taff manager of the 
dance orchestra, he increased 
his score by writing for strings, 
and took a course at the London 
College of Music in order to 
widen his knowledge of scoring 
for strings and woodwind. This 
was the first time he ever had 
any instruction in arranging, as 
he was entirely self-taught. 

Londoners will tell you that 

Bennett Lester Carter is, a great 

artist and a grand fellow who 

may be found at home, when he 

health tallu, or the many "cul- gis note working, playing records; 

ture" items that go on and on 
over the Britidi wireless (radio 
to you). 

His activities in London have 
been news, first, last and always, 
since he came here from New 
York, March 18 1936. He came 
directly to London from Paris 
where he was with WQlie Lewis' 
band and remained nine months 
before the call from BBC invited 
him to arrange for them with a 
promise of returning to his old 
lote-playing in and directing his 
own band. 

Benny had left Apierica to go 
to Paris because at home he had 
been writing and he wanted to 
play his favorite instrument— the 
trumpet! There is no other in- 
strument Benny claims, on 
which he can express himself so 
well. Even though he is not so 
well known for his tnmipet 
playing as he is his saxaphone 
playing there are few trumpet 
players in the world, some critics 
claim, who can play better than 

But in, Paris he only wrote 
music and that was not his aim. 
Consequently, he contacted 
friends in London and . the BBC 
engagement was arranged with 
emphasis oh the playing. 

Here again, Benny's purpose 
was thwarted and because he had 
so little opportunity to play 
over here, some of his r.-ights 
were spent at the little Soho re- 
sorts sitting in with the band.

(By Franklyn Frank for ANP) 
CHICAGO, April 30.— The death recently of Theron C. Ben- 
nett, white MemphicUi who made a fortune of several hundred thou- 
sand dollars on W. C. Handy's first masterpiece, "Memphis Blues," 
probably brings bitter memories to the Daddy of the Blues. Handy, 
you know, has never amassed even the first hundred grand. 

The famous composer was com- 
pletely discouraged when he sold 
his Memphis Blues to Bennett 
after all the music publishers 
had rejected it. The $100 he ob- 
tained probably looked mighty 
big at the time. But Bennett, 
another white man dealing with 
other white men, got it publish- 
ed and soon it was an interna- 
tional hit. Immediately blues 
songs leaped up like mushrooms 
— some good, some terrible. 

Seeing that hi^ first blues was 
coining money for Bennett—who, 
by the way, even refused to let 
Handy use it in his book of ten 
years ago entitled "Blue8"~the 
composer offered "St. Louis 
Blues" to the world. And again 
the music publishers turned it 
down. But instead of peddling 
it for coffee and cake money, 
Handy went to New York and 
with Harry Pace organized his 
own publishing company. He 
still holds the copyright on this 

great number— and it has been 
his chief source of income for 15 
years or more. 

Many aathorities say the 
Mempiiis Bines marked the be- 
ginning of Jazz. It's still popular. 
It has outlived hundreds of other 
synthetic, bines, compositions 
that popped up over night, spent 

their second in the sun, and then 
were buried in the musical grave- 

Which brings to mind Shelton 
Brooks and his famous "Some Of 
These Days". This ever popular 
number was written several 
years before the Memphis Blues. 
It was sold around 1905 for the 
great sum of-$250! Brooks ex- 
plained he needed the money. 
Anyway; it made a fortune for 
another white man, but fate was 
a little kinder to this composer. 
Unlike T. C. Bennett, Will Ros- 
siter has shared part of the in- 
come and is now trying to ar- 
range for a new contract with 
Brooks when the copyright expir- | 
es shortly. i 

Seeing the success of Some Of 
These Days, Broks came, back! 
with another number entitled j 
j "Some Of These Nights" which \ 
I he refused to sell outright. It was 
never successful. 

Stories are told of many color- 
ed composers who were forced 
} to sell their numbers for as lit- 
; tie as $10 to the music publish- 
ing trust or else keep their i 
brain children in mothballs. You 
will recall Andy Kirk's liit num- 
ber of last year, "Until The Real 
I Thing C(Hnes Along", was writ- 
ten by a Kansas Citian of color 
' but the whites got most of the 

In view of these facts, it would 
be interesting to know just how 
many successful numbers have 
been . written by Aframericans 
and sold for a mess of jpottage, as 
well as how many oi;hers have 
never been published because the 
author refused to virtually give 
them away.

Aaron George, son of share- 
cropper parents, is called home 
from college to the deathbed of 
his father at Beaver Dam, a 
Southern community. Filled with 
ambition and determined to take 
advantage of his education, the 
giant Aaron is looked on with 
resentment by owners and over- 
seers of the plantation and by 
other croppers until he makes 
himself friendly. His mother, 
Hannah, lives with him in the 
little cabin. 

At ■ a Saturday night party, 
Aaron meets Ada Green, a lovely 
yellow gal, and falls in love with 
her. Disregarding warnings, he 
meets her nightly in the woods 
until Fred Smith, white post- 
master and lover of the girl, re- 
turns. She promises to break with 
Smith and Aaron works hard to 
make a good crop and gjt plenty 
of money. ^ 

When it comes time to settle, 
he finds he still, "oweS" the plan- 
tation commissary. He gets a job 
in t9wn, tries to organize other

fight with Smith over Ada. 
Thinking he has killed the white 
man, Aaron flees to' Memphis, 
lives with a woman named Annie 
Bell, enlists and goes to France 
as a soldier .returns a second lieu- 
tenant, flees a Southern mob that

form, returns to Memphis, is ar- 
rested by a black detective nam- 
ed "Blue Steel", escapes, takes 
work as a roustabout on a river 
boat, tries to return to Bever 
Dam to see his mother and Ada, 
and is lynched. 
Realistic Southern Picture ^ 

The book is realistic in its pic- 
tures of Southern plantation life 
and race relations, of the thought 
processes of black and white, and 
of colorful Beale street. It has 
many snatches of spirituals and 
folk songs. 

However, one or two charact- 
ers could have been more clear- 
ly delineated. Ada Green is not 
quite convincing and the author 
did not get all he could out of 
several love scenes. But the book 
is easy reading and should inter- 

est whites who want an accurst* 
picture of the Southern Negro 
as weU as colored who wish an 
entertaining story. 

Ama Bontemps, who a year 
ago authored "Black Thunder", 
is the yriter of "Sad-Faced Boy", 
just published by Houghton Mif- 
flin and selling for $2. 

Sad-Faced Boy is primarily a 
children's book. It tells the story 
of a harmonica-playing sad-faced 
Alabama boy who with his broth- 
ers. Rags and Willie, J>ums his 
way to Harlem to visit an uncle 
and gets in numeroiis youthful 
escapades. They finally form a 
band with Rags picking a guitar 
and Willie playing a drum. 

Both Harlem and Broadway 
fall for their music and they get 
plenty of nickles and quarters 
that warm summer for ice cream 
cones and popsicles. But finally, 
after Willie becomes ill and then 
recovers, thoughts of Dixie are 
too much for them. Dreams of 
ripe persimmons and sofe bales 
of cotton are too much for them, 
so back they go to Dixie. 

Mr. Bontemps, himself the fa^ 
ther of two fine young sons, is a 
writer of great versatility. This 
is his second children's book 
and he has written both plays 
and novels after starting his 
career as the winner in a poetry 
contest conducted by Crisis 




Sad-Faced Boy is delighjjful 
reading for the children-but they 
wUl probably have to wait until 
the grownups have read its 
sparkling pages. It is ' delightful

All during the primary campaign we 
had but the highest commendation and 
respect for the clean, mdnly, dignified 
fight waged by opposers of the present 
Mayor and so stated time after time in 
these columns. 

The "run-off" finds Mayor Frank L. 
Shaw and Supervrsor John Anson Ford 


How bo You Plead? 

Of 107 Fisk Uniyersity students answering a 
tiuestionhaire designed to indicate their attitudes 
toward business and professional men of iheir«wn 
race, more than 90 per cent agreed with the state- 
ment that "the trouble with colpred business is 
that colored p)eople have never learned tq organize 
and work together." 

The test, given to men and women students, 

battling for the highest position in the representing different sections of theUnited states, 
gift of the voters of Los Angeles. Shaw M°'^<* * ^'S^^"" percentage of women than men 

is asking^ for election on o record of 
achievement, unequalled by any execu- 
tive who ever served the city in that 
capacity. He hos kept faith with the 
people and fulfilled every pre-etection 
pledge made four years ago. Mayor 
Shaw's keen foresight and honesty of 
purpose brought about a' restoration 
of confidence in business and indus- 
trial circles and as a result Los Angeles 
is floating upon a great tidal wove of 
prosperity. Business man and laborer 
is happy and content, a situation un- 
known in years past. Harmony has 
characterized the Shaw administration 
and high and low are pulling with Moy- 
,or Shaw in his commendable effort to 
place Los Angeles in the fore-front of 
all metropolitan cities. 

Opposing the Mayor we find John 
Anson Ford, member Board of County 
Supervisors, who has openly and above 
board been charged with being a sym- 
pathizer with the system of govern- 
ment practiced by Red Russia. We hove 
searched in vain but as yet hove failed 
to find where the ambitious supervisor 
has denied the charges. Big leaders in 
the Ford campaign set-up are avowed 
Communists, many of whom have visit- 
ed the Soviet Uniort where some say 
they took a thorough course in the best 
mode of procedure toward over-throw- 
ing the American government and de- 
livering it into the hands of Russia. 
*Whether th-is be true or false, vOb do 
know that a low-brow, foul, underhand- 
ed last minute campaign is being wag- 
ed to discredit the Mayor. 

Plug-uglies and. racketeers who en 

agreeing with statements not complimentary to 
our business and professions. 

Both sexes, however, registered high in posi- 
tive assertions that they, didn't think so much of 
their own. They agreed, for instance, that the aver- ' 
age colored person would rather trade in a white i 
store than in a colored store, even though prices 
are the same, and Ihat it is characteristic for us to 
be late in attending meetings. 

They agreed that colored ministers as a rule 
appeal to emotion more than reason, that they are 
usually begging for money, that the average con- 
gregation prefers a noisy, ignorant preacher to an 
educated one, and that the average colored work- 
mn would rather work under a ?white foreman, 
than one of his own race. 

• They ekpressed little confidence in colored 
financial institutions and stated that our lawyers 
and doctors often do not hesitate to discuss with 
non-profesionals the affairs of their clients and 

Representing a wide range of ages, geographi- 
cal locations, educational experiences and -socio- 
economic levels, one wonders just how much this 
sample erf the younger generation represents at- 
titudes that are generally universaL 

Thomas E. Davis, who made the study, while 
admitting that it is not conclusive but only sugges- 
tive of the need for further investigation, neverthe- 
less believes that the existence of these attitudes 
"is a serious indictment of Negro education." 

Pointing out that there is no logic in training 
people for businesses if they continue to believe in 
the ultimate failure of most of these enterprises, 
the author con^udes that, "the failure of business, 
the ministry and other specialized fields to at- 
tract more educated persons is due in part to tke 
general attitudes toward them".

The White House and Lynching 

Now that the House of Representatives 
passed the Gavagan Anti-Lynching Bill, the fate 
of this measure to outlaw mob violence is up to 
the Senate. There is where the real fight will take 
place and there is where the old Southern view- 
point i» most deeply entrenched; there is where 

- - , ,. , . r 1 f Boraht >"Sotton Ed" Smith, Mississippi's Bilbo, 

ter the publishing field at every cam- ; Texas' Tom Connolly and others will unite to pre- 
serve a free hand to lynchers in the name of 

paign in plying their nefarious meth 
ods, double-crossing, taking money 
from both- sides, etc., are trying to 
charge their misfortunes in running 
afoul of the low, fists and other stub- 
born obstacles to Mayor Shaw. The 
voters ore wise to these age-old tricks 
end refute such hog-wash by pointing 
to four years of clean government ad- 
ministered under Mayor Shaw. 

Who is John Anson Ford? From 
whence did the globe-trotting newspa- 
per scribe get his schooling in handlings 
affairs of government? Ford fell down, 
•foiled completely in his self-help pro- 
position which hod the goodwill of the 
people, but the inexperience of the pro- 
moter sunk what would hove been a 
Nvonderful thing and saved thousands 
bf dollars and brought indep)€ndence 
and comfort to the needy. 

In all fairness, the City of Los Ange- 
es is too big a piece of machinery for 
Dohn Anson Ford to man. 

Mr. and Mrs. Voter, don't be deceiv- 
ed by these lost minute stories circu- 
lated by hired stooges who for a few 
dollars would assoiT the character of 
pnyone. They have no friends and like 
t-ultures soil around see4<.ing whom they 
con d^our. 

Stay with the ship! Shaw has given 
us the best break the group has ever 
had. in Los Angeles.

Congress that will give protection to 
his kith and kin, he, in whom we pinned

the crucial moment. We can't believe

A post that is highly important in the 
lives of unfortunates who run afoul the 
law, is that of judge of the Municipal 
Court. Frederick M. Hall, City Public 
Defender, is a condiddte for the post 
and deserves your vote and support. 

By education, legal training and ex- 
perience, he is for better qualified than 
Judge Ida Mae Adams, incumbent. 

All nationalities look alike to Mr. 
Hall and if elected no ugly, offensrue 
name will be applied to anyone in his 
court. He's a clean, dignified, honor- 
able gentleman from every angle. 

Support Mr. Hall ! 



By The California Spectator 

Senator Norris' proposed amet^dment to amend 
the method of amending the Constitution boils down 
to a pretty clear-cut, fundamental issue, and anyone 
who knows the color of his own philosophy of govern- 
ment should hove no trouble in immediately striking 
an attitude for or against it. To amend the funda- 
mental law of our land it requires, at present, a two- 
thirds vote by Congress, and ratification by the legis- 
latures or state conventions in three-fourths of the 
states. Norris proposes ratification by a direct vote 
of the people in three fourths of the states. Do you 
believe amendments favored by two-thirds of Con- 
gress and a majority of the people should become law 
without delay? Then you're for it. Do you believe 
that legislatures should hove, as now, the power to 
"doubt a little" of the wisdom of the people lest they 
do they know not whai? Then you're against it. It's 

really as simple as that.

In their relationships with blind persons, all men 
of all lands show their true capacity for sympathy 
and understanding. In Japan this week famed Helen 
Keller is 50 yen to the good because a Japanese re- 
turned 250 yen to her after some native unaware of 
her blindness had stolen 200. And this week comes 
story about how a blind woman's need of transpor- 
tation between two California cities caused o fast S. 
P. passenger train to make on extra stop, and o train 
crew to attend her every need (she was alone) in a 
manner that John, D. Rockefeller in a private car 
might envy. An enterprising Moorpork news report- 
er interviewed her and reported her belief that "hod 
she been travelling in o private compartment with 
special attendants, she could have fared no better." 
The blind must know that the human race is better 
and more kind and sympathetic than the rest of us

Head of C. P. A. Floys 
Negro Press Attack 

(March 7, 1937) 

Vincent de Paul Fitzpatrick, managing editor 
of The Catholic Review, Baltimore, and president 
of the Catholic Press Association of the United 
States, has answered sharply attacks upon the 
Catholic Church and Catholic religion contained 
in an Associated Negro Press dispatch purporting 
to come from Valencia, Spain, which has appeared 
in some Negro papers df the United States. Mr. 
Fitzpatrick has called upon Claude Barnett, di- 
rector of the ANP, to send out his refutation to 
the same papers to which it sent its derogatory dis- 

The Associated Negro Press dispatch makes 
such palpably false statements as that until a 
year ago there .were no provisions to educate the 
chlldrn of w^orkers in Spain, but today, under the 
Popular Frpnt government, no child under 16- 
years of age is without schooling. It then draws 
a roseate picture of near-perfection attained in 
Spain under the present Madrid regime, after 
which it launches into vicious attacks upon the 
Catholic Church. Its thesis is that the Church in 
Spfin was ''deservant of burning many years ago", 
and it spurns no malignant statementj in its at- 
tempt to support it. Particularly, revoljlng charg- 
es are made against Spanish nuns. 

"What will Mother Katherine Dr|^el think— 
a Catholic religious who has given a vast fortune 
as well as herself to the spiritual welfare and the 
education of Negroes?" *.Mr. Fitzpatrick asks. 
"What will the Oblate Sisters of Providence think, 
the first Colored Religious Sisterhood established 
in the United States, 107 years ago in this city of 
Baltimore? What will the Sisters of Charity h> the 
South and the Sisters of Mercy think of=these vile 
slanders written by Roy Arlan Woodson pgainst 
the members of our Catholic Sisterhoods in Spain? 
What will the Josephite Fathers and the Divine 
Word Fathers, the priests of the religious Orders 
and societies, the diocesan priests and others who 
are devoting their lives to the Negro race, think:" 
What will the bishops who have bulit schools and 
churches for the members of the Negro race think? 
"A few hours before you sent out your story to 

the Negio papers, a collection for the developmec 
of the wftrk of tbe Catholic Church among the N« 
groes of this country had been taken up in tb 
Catholic churches of the country. This collectio: 
is taken up annually by the action of the Holy Fa 
ther, Pope Pius XI, who follows in the footsteps 
of his priMiecessbrs in doing so. 

"So sadistic have been the haters of the Cath- 
olic Church in Spain that they tore from the grav- 
es the badies of holy Sisters and- exposed thei 
skeleton:; to be jeered at and spat upon by tb 
Reds. They perpetrated other indignities upon th' 
sacred remains of these innocent women — some o ■ 
thsee indignities so unmentionable that commor 
decency prevents my alluding to them, though 
your Valencia correspondent uses such indignitie 
as a bas:is for a false and slanderous story. 

"Such is Roy Ar^an Woodson's hatred of tb 
Catholic Church that he makes the startling, de 
moniac statement that the Catholic churches b 
Spain 'deserved to be burned.' In other word! 
your correspondent justifies arson — and apparent 
ly looks -vfith nochalemce at the killing of bishops, 
priests, members of religious Sisterhoods, Broth- 
erhoods £ind laymen — by the thousands. 

"Honestly, do you think the members of the 
Negro race in the United States want to have their 
Negro papers indorsing the destruction of church 
es^Is-it^tiot your wish, your province, your duty, 
to .encourage your readers to be law-abiding citi- 
zens? ~.\ 

"You are \ newspaperman, and as a news 
paperman and especially as head of the ANP, yo» 
want your news stories to be credible and accurate 
I say, without qualification, that Woodson's ston 
reaches ^;he ultimate in incredibility and falsity.' 

Mr. Fitzpatrick declares some of the asser- 
tions in the dispatch contain "not only falsity but 
downright nonsense." 

"YoLr Valencia correipondent. it is plain, ii 
appealing to the Negroes to become communists— 
to join the United Front," Fitzpatrick says. "Dc 
you think the Negroes by joining th#*Ci9mmunist' 
and plotting against their country will keep the 
respect of their friends or better themselves spirit 
ually or otherwise? Does the ANP set itself up a; 
an advocate of Communism?

Dear Editor: 

I am one of those old fashioned 
persons who do not like political 
discussion mixed in with religi- 
ous worship. Last Sunday, how- 
ever, I sat, as a member of a 
congregation at a sacred religious 
worship, and heard a speaker on 
behalf of one of the Mayorality 
candidates, and the man's man- 
ner of going about his ■ business, 
I his tact and diplomacy, moved me 
to write this letter. 

Were I not for Mayor Shaw, I 
should still not have been of- 
fended at the way his represent- 
ative spoke for him at the Second 
Baptist church last Sunday. He 
showed the proper restraint, re- 
spect and decorum for the House 
of God and I wish to congratu- 
late His Honor. 

However, 1 must also add: I 
don't think had that been one 
of pur own race speaking for a 
political candidate, we would 
have been so impressed. We Ne- 
groes are so funny with tach oth- 
er when dealing in politics. 

Here's hoping we have another 
four years of Mayor; Shaw. 
A Shaw supporter. 

oir _, , 

Don't be deceived by promises of 5c spectacle at close range, will hope that it is success" 

street car fore, etc. Proposition "A 
on the ballot is the same jitney bus pro- 
position with which We had so much 
trouble several years ago. They went 
so for OS to refuse us transportation on 
these jitneys and if such a proposition 
is voted upon" by the people it will not 
only increase taxes, but you and yours 
will never be permitted to pilot one thru 
the streets and besides suffer many 
insults at the hands of uncouth white 
rouah-necks. Vote this bus business 
out! The street car company is instal- 
4ing modern rolling stock and in a few 
weeks we'll have the finest tronsporta- 
tionsystem in the country. 


Newi that the U. S. Supreme Court 
freed Ahgelo Herndon, young labor 
leader, convicted on an ancient, Geor- 
gia law, . is refreshing |ndeed and 
heightens our hope for the freeing of 
the innocent Scottsboro boys. Hern- 
don's cose was financed and kept be- 
fore the courts by the ILD, a wing of 
the Communist pxjrty. Mass pressure 
which attracted attention of people all 
over the world beyond doubt played ah 
important part in the o 

ful, and will hope further that no occasion will ever 
arise calling fpr the application of this air power in 

deadly earnestness.

t's on HI wind that bloweth no good, and so in 
most situations normally considered bod news, there 
is always a brighter side. Had it not been for the po- 
litical fuss that is keeping the Industrial Accident 
Commission in the news, a lot of Californians would 
know less about the duties ond functions of one of 
the most important bodies in their Stote. We know 
now, for example, that this Commissiori is charged 
with the administration of the Workmen's Compen- 
sation Fund, with awards for injuries sustained by em- 
ployes, with interpretation of the complicated com- 
pensation and safety act, and has direct jurisdiction 
over the State's enforcement of the industrial safety 
lows. As for methods of rejuvenating the Commis- 
Sion, there is one bill jn the4-egjiSlature proposing it 
be made a five-morr group, another proposing ten. 
Since the term of one of the present three-man group 
has expired, the consensus seems to be that the im- 
mediate need is for the Governor to appoint a dyna- 
mic executive unsullied by the breath of politics to 
give the Commission new life. Biit oli that is for ex- 
perts. What was thought an ill wind has blown us

Dear Editor: 

Our young boys and girls who 
aspire to public life have a great 
deal to learn from the young men 
and women of equal age in the 
other race. Last Sunday I visited 
the Los Angeles Forum and was 
greatly impressed by the speech 
of a young white man, hardly 
over 24, in reference to one of 
the propositions. 

His command of the English 
language, his equilibrium and 
poise, in the face of overwhelm- 
ing discourtesy, was remarkable. 
I wish my son and daughter 
could have heard him and their 
friends and school mates. 

Let us stress culture and nicety 
of language and manner more in- 
stead of some of the other things 
about which we are incessantly 
preaching. As a race we are 
greatly lacking in these thiogs.

I have about decided lo write

players etc. The. picture bears the 
cap"tion. "Bad Nigger Makes

FIGHT FANS TURNED out again in goodly numbers 

last Tuesday night, not only because Santiago Alberto LoveU is 
an Argentine Negro, but also because they like to see Rosenbloom 
fight. ^The colorfulness and showmanship of his clever, tricky bat- 
tling appeals to the Race fan just as the perpetual motion of the 
little "Tan Tornado" Armtrong. Both styles are sjjectacular and

as well as most expert marksman. Last week, with three com- 
panions, he invaded the Mexican waters of Baja, California, and 
again -hogged all the honors by catching the first and biggest yel- 
low-tail of the day. There were 174 caught but Arnold's was the 
daddy of them alL \»-eighed 26 pounds and fought for an hour before 
agreeing to be the center-piece of a fish fry for the radio patrolman's

Democrats annihilate 
Polytechnic; to face 
strong opposition 


A three-way race for the city 
high school track and field title 
loomed here last Friday as the 
prep schools squared off in the 
first dual meets of the season. 

The three most formidable con- 
tenders for the crown, judging 
by Fridajr's performances, will 
be Los Angeles, Jeffejrson and, 
Manual Arts hi^ schools. L. A. 
and Jefferson were conceded top 
ranking prior to the opening of 
the season. Manual Arts vas i 
hailed into the circle following 
Friday's encounter with Hunting- 
ton Park, which ended in a 90-14 

Coach Harry Edelson's Jeffer- 
son Democrats annihilated Poly- 
technic 87 to 17 on the home 
grounds; while the Romans spik- 
ed Taft and Fullerton in a tri- 
practice meet 87% to 17%. 

Two Negro lads, Sammy Pick- 
ens, and BUI Thedford by name, 
answered for four or five of Man- 
ual Arts points, but that was j 
nothing like the whole horde of 
color in evidence on Jeffs green.

CHICAGO, April 30.— Thus far, agitation for sepia participation 
in big league baseball has virtually no impression on the white 
czars of the game. This, however, is only one of two ways by which 
Dur stars will get in the heavy money; the other Is far slower but 
even at that it may be accomplished befor e the big horse hide 
moguls abolish the color line. 

The slower method is through 
the growing international inter- 
jst shown in baseball. During the 
spring training season, a young 
Mexican named Romo Chavez at- 
tracted attention by triinm|ng 
±e Philly Athletics on a total of 
four hits. He may eventually play 
with Homsby's St. Louis Browns.

tact that Mexico is taking the

y sit-down strike, the first in the West, wasW^ 
last Tuesday night at Sebastian's Cotton Club, but the joke of it all

Judged by the phone and mail 
response to its first presentation, 
Harlem Rhadsodies, Todds new 
feature -^jrogram over KFAC is 
going places. 

Conducted by Don Otis, who 
for years has been emceeing the 
best colored bands, the program 
features headliners like Duke El- 
lington, Fats Waller, Jimmie 
Lunceford, Fletcher Henderson, 
Cab Calloway, Earl Hines, Les 
Hite, Teddy Wilson and Claude 
Wilson, presenting their best and 
featured recordings. 

A unique feature of the pro- 
gram is the voting contest for the 
favored band being presented 
during the hour, with that band 
featured during the last quarter 

Celebrities will be presented 
and interviewed in person dur- 
ing the series, and Les Hite was 
the first guest on last Sunday's 
program. ' 

Todds, who present the pro- 
gram, are desirous of making it 
as interesting as possible, and all 
suggestions are welcome. 

Tune in next Sunday, 10 to 11 
a. m. over KFAC. Unless we miss 
our guess, you'll like the pro- 
gram. It's tops in recorded En- 
tertainment, and if the program 
meets with your approval sit 
down at once and send a card or 
letter to the California Eagle. 
This will help to keep these sepia 
stars on the air.

their request had not been grant-

So when Les Kite's band play- 
fed the .opening chorus they trip- 
ped lightly oLft to the center of 
the floor, stopped dead in their 
tracks and sat down. The band 
vamped and vamped; no dance. 
They stared, motioned and play-

Sebastian came running. 
What's the trouble? "No pay, no 
play", the girls all chorused, and 
the harried proprietor argued, 
begged and waved his arms ex-

This means that eventually the

he was responsible for programs

Mrs. Aittia Baptiste, now splen-

to her home in Pasadena's Grand

ly informed that within the ranks 
of those two outstanding clubs, 
the "Nine O'clock" and the Colo- 
rado," Mrs. Baptiste is known as 
the "baby" of the former and the 
"sweetheart" of the latter . . . 
aU of which must needs lead to 
a spirit of friendly rivalry be-

zest to do honor to this charming 
personality, who has so grace-

w^ould be at the door, shaking

Using the slogan of the Fifth

opening, a splendid appeal for the 
Negro youth and adults, was 
made in a most sincere manner. 
The National Negro anthem sung 
by the group, and directed by 
Mrs. Alice Bugg with Mrs. Shar-

The Scott Methodist church, on 
Mary street, was the place ch^en 
by the Colored Business and Pro- 
fessional Women, for the second 
public meeting and bneakfast, 
last Sunday morning at 8:30. 

Seated at the speakers table 
were. Miss Buchtel, general sec- 
retary of the local YWCA; Miss 
Donnelly, Girl Reserve secretary 
from the same organization; and 
Mrs. Davis, Business and Indus- 
trial Girls secretary. Mrs. Alice 
Bugg, president of the Colored 
Buiness and Professional Wom-

Bureau, and mistress of cere- 
monies for the occasion, Mrs. W. 
D. Carter, Rev. Shaw and Dr. A. 
T. Bowlin, physician and 
present owner of our new Grace 
Rest Home. During breakfast 
each of these guests were called 
upon, and a most encouraging re- 
sponse was made by everyone. 

Following breakfast, an inter- 
esting program was presented. A 
violin solo, "Morning" by Oley 
Speaks, was played by Miss 
Martha Berry. Introduction of 
members and guests was made 

by a presentation of the "one to a good chance of capturing this 

your right". It was gratifying to affair if all the men come through 
■ ■ ' " ""' * ' ' - in their respective event. 

The Glendale Dynamiters liv- 
ed upt to their namesake and dy- 
namited the Terriers to. win the 
dual meet league title. Glendale 
showed all-around power in ev- 
ery event. . 

Probably the greatest upset 
came when Muir suffered a dou- 
ble defeat in the sprints, in which 
they were favored to win and 
possibly collect 18 points. Dave 
Cochrane, the Glendale star, cap- 
tured the 100 in 10 flat and the 
2i0 in 22.2. James Ruffin was a 
close second, followed by Willie 

Anderson forced Guinn Smith 
of Glendale to jump « feet 2 5-8 
inches to win the high jump. 
He .was second at 6 feet 1 5-8 Jn- 
ches. Tip Johnson placed third to 
Whittle of Glendale in the quart- 
er. The, time was 50.1 seconds. 

The Muir Relay team, behind 
for three laps, came through in 
the last lap to win in the good 
time of 1:31.1. The team consist- 
ed of Johnson, Sangster, Taylor 
and Kindle. 

Coleman won the class B 220 in 
23.2 and was second by inches 
in the hundred. The B's lost 61 
to 31. 

Tomorrow, the Terriers travel 
to Whittier High for the league 
meet. Coach Walton's men stand

MetropoUUn Baptist church 

Pasadena, Calif. 

Rev. P. B. Cmmelius, pastor 

Sunday school at 9:30 A. M, 
was attended by many students, 
who manifested much Lnterest in 
the work At 11 A. M., Rev. Cor- 
nelius, pastor, brought a soul- 
stirring message, which moved 
the audience to tears on the sub- 
ject: "Freely ye have received, 
freely give." There were two ad- 
ditions to this service and one 
eandidate for baptism. 

At 3 P. M., the pastor and con- 
gregation went to Rev. Dobbins' 
church. Rev. Cornelius brought 
another powerful and uplifting 
sermon on the subject: "Regene- 
ration". At the BYPU, there was 
a great show of enthusiasm. The 
pastor also spoke at the evening 

improving at Mrs. Moses' Rest 
Home, 810 E. 46th street, Los 
Angeles, and enjoys the visits of 
his fellow church men and 

Mrs^. Rex Vandenburg is resting 
comfortably at the recently open- 
ed Grace Sanitarium on West 
Movmtain street. 

The Study Group is meeting at 
Vicar's Study. All students and 
8 P. M. Thursday evening in the 
workers with youth are invited. 

At the 11 A. M. Sunday ser- 
vice, a series of sermons on the 
"Articles of Faith," is Ifeing 
preached by the Vicar. 

The interest of the nation has 
been turned towards Washington 
wher6 the House of Represent- 
atives passed the Gavagan anti- 
lynching bill 277-119 last Thurs- 
day. The next hurdle for the bill 
is the senate, which in the past 
has ignored such legislation. 

The bill is for the protection 
of the Negro, by giving the Fed- 
eral GCvemment power to stamp 
out lynching. The Bill wiU aid 
the Negroes in the south, where 
very little protection is given to 
prevent lynchings. 

The colored citizens of Pasa- 
dena should be disappointed to 
know that Representative John 
S. McGroarty, representing the 
11th Congressional district, which 
includes Pasadena, was the only 
California representative to vote 
against the measure: Before the 
beginning of the 75th Congress, 
Representative McGroarty signed 
a pledge card that was sent to 
each congressman by the NAACP 
stating that he favored anti-lyn- 
ching legislature. By his vote of 
last Thursday. McGroarty fail- 
ed to carry out his promise. He 
also failed to vote on the Mitch- 
ell anti-lynching bill, which was 
recently defeated.

Drake f ploys 

Co-Captain Mock Rob- 
inson stools spotlight in 
cornivol; in rour events 

Competing against the strongest 
mid-west four year colleges and 
universities, the PJC nine-man 
track team acquitted themselves 
convincingly in the Drake Re- 
lay carnival held last week-end 
at Des Moines. Coach Otto An- 
derson entered a team in three 
relay events and two open events 
and came through with two 
firsts, one second and a fifth. 

Co-captain Mack Robinson stole 
the spotlight in the historic an- 
nual carnival by anchoring the 
four man mile lelay, running a 
leg on the mile sprint medley, 
taking fourth in the open hvmd- 
red and winning the broad jump. 
He went out 25 feet 5^4 inches 
in the broad jump to establish the 
best jump in America^ to date, this 
year. He also set up a tremen- 
dous lead in the sprint medley 
later to have his team mates lose 
it. Pittsburgh, Kansas SUte Tea- 
chers came from behind to nose 
out Bobby Madrid in the last lap. 
Compton J. C. and Oklahoma 
Baptist followed Pasadena. John 
Helman started the race with the 
first 220, Robinson rin the sec- 
ond 220, with Co-captaln Howard 
Bachman and Bobby Madrid each 
running a 440. 

Robinson was again the victim 
of the judges' decesion in the 
hxmdred. In what appeared to be 
a dead heat, from the pictures, 
the judges' awarded first place* 
to Bob Grieve of Illinois and„. .^ 
fourth to Mack. Ed Toribio of, SURPRISE PARTY 
Oklahoma was second and Berttr*^ yuss Marv Ruth Rnni 
Carr of Rice, third. The appar- 
ent reason (or excuse) for such 
a decision, as given by leading 
sports authorities, was that Grieve 
was rimning in the lane fatherest 
from the judges, while Robinson 
was in the lane, nearest the of- 
ficials' stand. In picking the men 
in a race as close as this par- 
ticular race, it is quite possible 
to overlook the man nearest the

it could do if all our students on

with Jofire Roberts the Pres. He 
is really sincere and deserves all 
the support he can get. The hul-

You know folks^,I was down in* 
C, the other day, I have to ! 
go down there quite often. 1 1 
stopped oft at A. & T. College in ! 
Greensboro. I was moved by the j 
spirit displayed by the A. & T. 
College basketball team. Al- j 
though they're the CIAA basket- 1 
ball champigns and the cbnteat 
that they won from Morgan col 
lege to acquire the crown is 5 
somewhat history, there is still 
quite a bit of discussion as to 
Who deserves the liqn's share of 
credit for their gala achievement. 

Captain "Bill" McClain high, 
scoring forward is willing to 
give the credit to "Pecky" Con- 
way, M. Shyte, Coach Parker, 
his assistants, and the other fel- 
lows on the team. Likewise each 
member of the team gives the 
credit to his team mates and 
coach. From Little Nat Webster, 
mascot, up to Coach Parker, his 
iassistant, James Neeley, and the 
ace basketeers, who have prov- 
en their ability to go places on 
the courts, you will find no self 
centered person who leads one 
to believe that in his absence the 
team would have crumbled like 
paste board in the path of a 
tornado. The championship team 
is composed j of: James Neeley, 
guard, Pecky Conway, forward, 
Slim Riddick, center, Captain 
Bill McClain, forward, "Ghost" 
Coles, guard, Ralph Wooten and 
M. Shute. They were coached by 
H. K. Parker, assisted by S. A. 
Barksdale, with L. Dayenport as 
student manager, G. Laws, train- 
er and Little Nathanel Webster 
as mascot. Bill McClain w a S 
awarded an all time court honor.

WetfEtre called up on the 4th oi 
this c^ing May, to cast our bal- 
lot for a man to represent us m 
Congress of the Tenth district. 
In accord with the inforniation 
we received from the National 
Headquarters of the NAACP, th^ 
we should know our man and 
have him tell us where he stands 
on the Anti-Lynch bill, we have 
sought that information. There 
are two candidates in the field. 
Mr. Harry Hopkins, a Republican 
candidate, and A. J. Elliott, a 
Democrat. For the first time m 
ity life, I find myself in a posi- 
tion that I cannot vote for him; 
because he is reputedly a KKK, 
as indicated by the newspaper 
published on May 5, 1922, "The 
Bakersfleld Califomian." You 
know we as a race have suffered 
under that prganization's influ- 
ence. He was mayor of Taft and 
imder his administration, no one 
of our group could stay all night 
ip that town. This was the first 
office he ever held and he was 
recalled from that. 

I had a personal talk with Mr. 
Elliott, the Democrat nominee, 
and he frankly stated his position 

Fndoy, April 30, 1937J, 


as favorable to the Anti-Lynch 
law bill and said will vote for 
the same. I therefore commend 
him to your confidence and ask 
your cooperation in voting for 
him at the coming election. As a 
race loving man I could not do 
different. .

uggest that at least a thousand people join me in 
kowing our appreciation for this radio service. 

We went back to old Wesley again last Sunday 
noming and it was a real joy. The occasion was the 
innual sermon of the Pioneer club No. 1 of Los An- 
leles. It is always thrilling for me to meet again and 
(reet again the men and women pioneers and their 
ons and daughters, who by their vision, grit and tol- 
irance, laid the foundation upon which we have build- 
d the city which you and I call our Home Town. 

I saw Mother McDonald, the little mother that 

i lave us our first deputy city prosfecutor, our first lady 

'( lentist and one of our f frst pol icemen. I am sure that 

he was the inspiration somewhere in the vision that 

' lave us the Somerville Hotel. 

I sav^ Mrs. Bruington, the mother of the dount- 
ess Bessie Bruington Burke, who would not be dis- 
X3uraged and fought her way up to be the first color- 
id teacher certified for our public schools and on 
heer merit was appointed a principal of that some 


I sow Mrs. Mottie S. Nelson, the heart and soul 
»f the YWCA, OS we know it, the widow of the late 
Dr., Thomas J. Nelson, the first of our native physic- 

ons. , , J 

I saw the youthful S. P. Johnson sr., much loved 
>y the pioneers for his years of valuable service to the | 
:ommunity andWalter L. GordorVsr., a pioneer in the 
Jield of real estate. ' 

There was Mrs. Percy Buck, the oldest pioneer | 
iresent in the point of years in the state. I 

In that delegation that came with Rev. C. H. An- i 
d^son from the Lone Star state in the late 80's, were , 
^r. and Mri. Dan J. Smith, Mr. and Mrs .John Sellers, I 
\Ar. H. Busby and others. | 

As bid Wesley wos born in Hie home of Mr. ond j 
^rs. E. G. Hill, it was o tribute to them to hove the i 
»toneers as guests. ... 

The eloquent Rev. Rakestrow wos at his best 
■nd delivered a most soul stirring and inspirational , 
Message. His subject was "Pioneering for Christ". I 

The choir under the direction of its minister of | 
nusic, George R. Garner, was a "thing of beauty, a 
«y forever". 

The most fitting number, I think, wos the ren- 
iition of Dvorak's "I am Going Home^'. 

Truly we are going home one by one. 

It is in the twilight with life's shadows lengthen- 
ing for some of us. We treasure every little bit of 
lunshine^hot ramoins, hence we are deeply grateful

One day, one of the company's

Meet held by 



The Native Califonrians met 
at the residence of Mrs. Lauretta 
Butler, 915 Austin street, Tues- 
day evening, April 20. 

The regular business of the 
Club was disposed of in order, 
aad Mrs. Grace Phillips was ap- 
pointed Chairman of the sick 
committee. It etras then decided 
that the Native Californians 
would turn out in a body at the 
Second Baptist church, 24th St 
and Griffith avenue, to attend the 
inaugural sermon of the Native 
Sons of The Pioneers. 

Former' President, Mrs. Adele 
McGruder, and vice-president, 
Mrs. Maggie Stovall, were pre- 
sented with a beautiful pair of 
embroidered pillow slips, and a 
beautiful hand made scarf in 
honor and appreciation of their 
good and faithful service. 

Following the presentations, 
lovely gifts were exchanged be- 
tween each ones unknown 
"Heart". The presence of two de- 
lightful visitors, Mrs. Bemice 
Patton and Mrs. Jacquelin Woods 
added to the gathering, and after 
a very delightful repast served 
by Mrs. Butler, we adjourned to 
meet on May 6th at 15S7 West 
36th Place with Mrs. Mable 

(continned from page one-a) 
known as Otis Lawson, bad man 
from Montana, the place where 
the bullies grow. Planning a foray 
into the realm of music with no 
better equipment that colossal 
ignorance and brass-bound nerve, 
he took unto himself the title of 
"Baron" to make up for all other 
deficiencies. After sn ignominious 
flc^ as a musical leader-director- 
manager, he gathered himself to- 
gether for a hurdle that would 
land him in some position of im- 
portance in civic and political 
leadership. Evidently his plans 
called for membership in a big 
church; for he joined one of the 
city's largest and undertook, to 
run it without consulting the pas- 
tor. Simultaneously with his en- 
deavor to become a high church- 
man, he launched his campaign 
for popularity with the masses 
in the form of an harangue at the 
Los Angeles Forum. Sept 20, 
1936, in which he made false and 
atntrue statements concerning the 
editor ot the Eagle,' which she 
forced him to retract before Dep- 
uty City Attorney Bert McDon- 
ald, and other witnesses eight 

foregoing to his credit, he does 
not rest on his laurels, but is con- 
stantly engaging his talents in 
some constructive and lucrative 
enterprise. Recently, he has in 
partnership with Mr. Nickens, 
presented the foremost swing 
bands and orchestras of the race 
in dance engagements at the beau- 
tiful Elks' Hall for the enjoy- 
ment of those who love to dance. 
Encouragement is due this 
young man because he stands 
upon his feet and fights his own 
battles without a peep — an ex- 
ample worthy of emulation. 

j days later. Now that he publicly 
j endorses John Anson Ford for 
Mayor, the. public should know 
that his opinion is not worth the 
i ink nor paper necessary for the 
printing of his thoughts. Accord- 
! ing to his own statement, politics I 
\ and all politicians are crooked, 
and when asked if that included I 
him also, he smirkingly admitted 1 
that it did. . 

Youth is always idealistic, that 
is — worthy youth .... and it is I 
a pity 'when such persons as have \ 
been described, set themselves up I 
as examples and leaders of todays I 
Youth, for they have no altruistic ' 
motives in so doing and should ' 
be scotched every time they maka | 
a move. i

Group headed by Frank 
Maxwell makes debut 
at Second Baptist 

Last Sunday member and of- 
ficers of the newly formed Sons 
of the Pioneers of California, 
gathered with their friends and 
well wishers in the Second Bap- 
tist church, 24th street and Grif- 
fith avenue, to hear their initial 
sermon preached and preserit 
themselves o na program to Los 
Angeles citizenry. The occasion 
was an notable one from- the his- 
torical point of view. A well 
filled church heard the Rev. 
Thomas L. Griffith in an most 
fitting and appropriate sermon. 

Many of' the pioneer citizens 
of this splendid state were on 
han dto witness the birth of this 
sorely needed organization that 
portends to brilliant eventuali- 
ties. The pastor. Rev. Griffith's 
seronm topic "The Business of 
Religion" was ofvsist education- 
al benefit and gave wide latitude 
for frequent direct reference to 
the tNative Sons group. 

A splendid solo number, by a 
great baritone poet of song Clin- 
ton Rosamond, the screen actor, 
enhanced an already cultural 
and dignified program. He is a 
stylist that hel dhis audience at- 
tention in rapt reverance. Mrs. 
Luyenia Dones was his accom- 
panist. The Pioneer .Club of Cali- 
fornia an#» the Native (Daligh- 
ters) CalLfornian's Club, both 
combined to make this auspicious 
debut of the Native Sons of the 
Pioneers, a successful one. 

Mrs. Naomi Dorsey, read a 
splendid and inspiring paper on 
behalf of the Califomian's Club. 
A telegram from that club's 
president. Mrs. Yola Davis ex- 
pressing her regrets on not be- 
ing able to attend was accepted 
along with a very beautiful bas- 
ket of flowers. Mr. S. P. John- 
son, sr. brought the message of 
welcome from the Pioneer's club, 
that bade the fledgling sons 
"carry on". The office of the 
Mayor Frank L. Shaw,, was very 
ably represented by Mr. O. D. 
Thomas, who in pointing out the 
necessity of such an organization, 
warned the members of their 
grave responsibility of miantain-

Property Owners Association of

The association's statement fol- 
lows: 1 . 

"The claims of the proponents 
of the measure that it provides 
for a 5c fare are grossly mislead- 
ing, as an analysis of the ordi- 
nance will show, and are only 
being employed as a vote catch-

set any rate it chooses on so-call- 
ed 'long hauls'. Should it not 
exercise this right r>nd conform 
to its 'policy' of a 5c fare the re- 

sults would be most disastrous to 
the taxpayers of this city, who 
would bie called upon to make up 
the deficit, since it is a conceded 
fact that a bus system canaot op- 
erate profitably with such a ra*e. 
"It is not likely that the voters 
of Los Angeles would authorize 
a bond issue of $25,000,000 to fi-

for a municipal bus system, yet 
Proposition "A" imposes a debt 
of this amount without their con- 

"The creation of' a Transporta-

Young artist 
attention ^ 

1 OAKLAND, April 30— At a rec- 
ent art exhibit held at the Lin- 
den Branch YWCA, the work of 
Richard William Dempsey, young 
Negro artist, has attracted wide 
attention. The youth, who is at 
present employed on the Federal 
Arts Project, had on display, some 
sixty-odd canvases. He has at- 
tempted expression in many 
types and forms of art . . . com- 
mercial, portraits, landscapes, 
charcoal, surrealism, modernistic 

and wood-carving. ! 

Mr. Dempsey, while attempting ^ 
too many different forms 'of art- ELEPHANT SCARE

has been done in an excellent

the YWCA, and is a. very fine 

landscape, as are many of the 

other land and sea paintings.

During the past five years;, this 
concern has grown rapidly and 
this week, they are moving their 
laboratory and office force into 
larger quarters again so as tp 
take care of the increase of busi- 
ness. Under the able direction of 
its president, Mr. AleX C. Brent, 

A group of sportsmen con- 
sisting of Ford White, Ajay John- 
son, and Arpold Towns, took a 
flying trip to San Diego, and 
boarded one of the many fishmg 
boats, gliding over the Paciic 
ocean ninety miles away into 
Mexican watens.' This story 
would not perhaps been written^ - 
except that among the 20 people 
aboard, there was a catch of 17< 
yellow-tail, one of the fau^oiK 
game fish of the western wafSts. 
Arnold Towns, American Le- 
gionaire, police officer, and Cfacli 
shot winner of the golden medal^' 
added another achievement bj 
ni&king the biggest catch of th« 
day — fifteen in all, topping thai 
by landing the biggest yellowtail 
brought aboard by any of th« 
anglers up to date, weighing ii- 
pounds. He reported that it took 
him two hours to land hi^ quarry.

Vacation Dreams 

Vacation dreams are not so "balmy" this time 
of the year — for, as the saying goes, "It won't be 
long now." 

Wise is the motorist who has his cor over- 
houled now, so that it will be well "broken-in" 
before he starts the long grind of a vocatton trip. 

It really takes two or three months to "break- 
in" a motor correctly and that means you'll have 
to hurry — If your vacation starts in June or July.

SUNDAY is Mothers' D a y. 

Strangely synonymous \v 1 1 h 
"thoughts of ' mothers are 
thoughts of children. 

And while the rest of the 
world pauses in commemora- 
tion of mothers, who have join- 
ed the endless procession, fol- 
lowing in the footsteps of the 
first mother, I feel the recess- 
it\- of delivering this bit of 
preachment to those that are 
here and those that will some- 
day be mothers. 

My favorite poet, the Syrian. 
Kahlil Gibran. says this to 
mothers when speaking of 

'"Your children are n'^* ynur 

They are the sons and daugh- 
ters of life's longing for it- 

They come through yi.u — but 
not from yoa 

And though thoy are with \ nu. 

yet they belong not to yru. 

You are the bow from v.-hi'"h 
your children as ar- 
rows are sent forth 

The archer sees the nia' k upon 
the path of the infinite and 
He bends ytu with his 
might that his arr^iv^s raay 
go swift and far. 

Let your bending :n the arch- 
er'.^ hand be f'^r t;Udnefs 

For even as Hp lo\'r.; -he ar- 
row tha' flies, so \\f loves 
also the b o w that iS 
stable'' , . . . 

Yes. Mothprs. let your bend- 
ing be for gladness; fo:' there 
L'^ nothing, not great wealth. 
not beauty, not power, not the 
love of the best man on earth, 
that makes a queen cf every 
woman, no matter iier station. 
as does motherhood. 

■When I started to w;nte this. 
m.y thoughts on Mothers' day. 
were only what I could say to the grateful overflow- 
ing m m.y heart fnr love of 
Tfy ov.n mother, and the im- 
riieasurable ache ;a m;v sou! 
that she is not 'tere this Moth- 
ei's' Day. that I m.ight touch 
her hand, but I feel that out 
of the queenUness that was 
hers, the em.bodiment "f the 
best in wom.anhood. her m.oth- 
erhood. that she nods her wise 
and beloved head :n agree- 
ment with what I have said to 

IN 1932 Los Angeles was treat- 
ed to an earth tremor that 
shook the foundations from 
beneath many of our school 
buildings. As a rosult of this, 
an investigation revealed that 
these quake-disturbed build- 
ings were constructed on 
faulty foundations. Hence, a 
vigorous program to make all 
schools earthquake resistent 
is being carried on. 

Now that the campaign to 
elect a mayor and S'^m.c other 
officials of lesser importance 
has become histoiy. let us turn 
our attention to some of our 
own needs. 

As a racial e'ntity or group,

target of prejudice and dis- 
crimination for all the groups, 
which is the effect, but we 

The fact that the Black Am- 
erican is scorned and despis- 
ed by other Americans is due 
til his own lack of respect and 
appreciation for himself. 

In political campaigns, such 
a; the one from which we have 
just emerged. Black Ameri- 
c'lns use everv means at their 
c-*mmand NO'T TO INTELLI- 

Instead they use tactics that 
their enslaved forefathers 
v'ould have, frowned upon, in 
, attempt to belittle the efforts 
of s o-m e o n e promoting the 
cause of, another candidate. , 

For e:tample. I am told that 
Tlr. Leroy Hart, a man wt]0 
• holds several degrees from 
sDme reputable universities, 
stood up before a civic organi- 
sation last Sunday and made 
» statem.ent to the effect that

One wT>uld not expect this 
-from the man. who has so often

thanked her for coming to his 
rescue in tim.e of need.

LONDON, May T.' (By Fay M. 
Jackson for ANP) — Forty times 
in a thousand years it has hap- 
pened. An average of once every 
quarter of a century. The first 
time that alert, world-minded 
Aiperican Negro readers evince 
in interest in the coronation of 
i king— when they belong to a 
republic and most of the world 
has gone against monarchy-'is 
this year when George VI, of 
England, will be annointed, 
crowned and presented King- 
Emperor. Slay 12. 

That the^e is an American rep- 
resentative; of the :*-Associafted 
Negro Press in England specifi- 
saliy to "cover" the Coronation 
-las become of copsiderabl* in- 
erest to the National British 
=re^s. Wh>-? 
T!ie answer is simple. 

Four hundred raillioD sujb- 
iects of the British Empire to 
be ruled over by this new Kin;; I 
are black people- -essentially of 
the sanjie race as the Republi- j 
can governed American Negro. 
Swarming into London— at the ' 
daily rate of 20,000-are peoples j 
of every race, color and creed to 
view the pageantry an^ if but 
for a moment in this war-torn, 
war-threatened world— to extend 
the hand of fellowship, to smoke 
the pipe of peace. 

In this gigantic, garguantuan : 
oarade of peoples, where will the 
Black People stand? What place 
in this panoramic sweep of Hu- ' 
man Family do they occupy? Of , 
the two forms of government- 
monarchical and Tepublican--in 
ivhich is reflected the greater ad- | 
vantages of power and progress: 
the African, West Indian. South ' 
.American and English half-caste ; 
under British; or, the "Negro" I 
jnder American? 

England has arranged the show 
and London will be the .^ite of 
the parade— inspiring or disillu- 
sioning--May 12. 

Both the African and the 
.\merican Negroes have suffered 
slavery, e.xploitation. death. The 
.American Black has given labor 
ind love: song and science, blood 
and art to his country. What does 
he get in return' 

The African has given these-- 
■jiit-edged with agelessness when 
civilization was youngest— plus 
:he wealth from above and be- 
leath the ground of his native 
and. What has he got in return?- 
Perhaps the comparison of. 
■ace to nation--when that race is.,' 
black— vnll throw some light on 
his prating of the elusive 
'brotherly love" theory. 

And. perhaps the comparison ■ 
if race to nation when that Na- ; 
.ion is governed by Church apd 
•iing will throw some more light 
•n the still more elusive "Justice" 
n its peculiar adaptations for the 
ilack man. 

Light or no lij:tat We shall see 
that the British African as well 
as the American Negro stands 
sadly alone, dejected and ne- 
trlected and weak among the 
Human Family of the World 
today. Nobody cares. Abyssinia 
showed that. Nobody wants 
vou. The Coronation will prove 

Such little tricks--such cheap 
ittle tricks do these rulers of 
ilack trten employ to show us 
low little we count to them after 
iiey're'drained our physical and 
ipiritual resources. 

At home: a politician rides in- 
\fi high office on your vote and 
we throws you a few catchy, 
jromissory slogans. 

Abroad: the far-flung Brit- 
ish Empire controls and gov- 
erns one-fourth of the earth; j 
and the ensign of that kingly i 
power is set with the Star of ! 
.Africa; largest diamond in the ' 
world; yet, England has had 
the cheek to exclude all but 
two of Africa's Chieftains-and 
these two an enforced, second 
thought for -the Coronation! 

One to every 200 million; once 
n a thousand years. These are 
'igures that, I hope, will set off a 
kindred spark of rebellious re-< 
^entment in the breast of every 
black man and child. 

Thi^ is how we count among 
■.he peoples of the world. 

Two black heads atop 400 mil- 
ion bowed souls and bodies-- 
:hi.<! is how we stand. 

The Coronation proves it!

Strange diet of compos- 
er revealed by ANP 
Correspondent Jackson 

LONDON, May 7. (By Fay M. 
Jackson for ANP)— Even if I 
hadn't heard of Tanguy, I might 
have known that there was 
something sur-realistic about the 
way Reginald Foresythe hung on- 
«j a large derby that Easter Sun- 
day we met in af Montmartre i 
sidewalk cafe near the Sacre i 

The man eats hats, his and his 
friends'. And Mr. Forsythe pre- 
fers bowlers for breakfast! He 
told me. 

"But, my dear, haven't you 
ever chewed on a luscious hat?" 
he queried, stuffing his tremend 
ous silk batik kerchief up 
sleeve in old English fashion. 

No, I hadn't. But I have heard 
of men promismg to make some- 
one eat his hat with an entirely 
different meaning from Reggie's. 
And I do know a lady who makes 
little pellets of loose wool on the 
blankets and chews on them 
something like a cow does its 

"■Well, let me tell, you," ex- 
plained Foresythe, "there's noth- 
ing like hats for the diet and— 
a bowler for breakfast? My dear! 

"I can't say what vitamin they 
contain but they're delicious and 
quite palatable when washed 
do\vn with a few rounds of Per- 
no or . . . just brandy." 

Never having seen Mr. For- 
sythe with a hat of his own, I 
wondered if his strange menu 
didn't work a hardship on his 
friends and, unconsciously pull- 
ed mine well down over my ears 
to avoid confiscation. 

Oh, yes, of course, it is a spot 
of bother to his friends Reggie 
admitted, that is until he replaces 

"You see that Stetson of Nils' 
(a Swedish journalist friend with 
htm)— I'm going to have that one 
for diner tnonight and when I get 
back to London. I shall buy him 
another. It will be the sixth, eh. 
Nils?" he said. 

"Yas. It may be, Redgee," the 
Swede replied thoughfully, "but 
it want be! I like these vary hat 
and besides you haf that tweed 
cap yet and I haf never seen you 
eat it, .^.nd besides I belief all 
hat eatmg is rubbish!'' he ex- 

It did sound a bit balmy I

No, dear reader, the gentleman on the right, is not applying 
for a job — it is none other than Clarence Muse, famous stage,

Neighbor," during a broadcast over KHJ, and the Den Lee Net- 
work, (Sunday, 3 P. H.) Clarence has just remarked: "Boy, you

"This is the fastest moving em-

these were the wi;jrds Clarence

LONDON, M*y 7. (ANP) 
That • there is an insidions 
softenine proeess Eoing: on 
among the boyhood and young 
manhood of Great Britain and 
a reyolntionary change will 
have to be made in the ednca- 
tional system was the opinion 
of Alex Lethem, of Leith, a 
former president of the Na- 
tional Council of the Boys 
Brigades of Great Britain, in 
an interview for the Associat- 
ed Negro trttss, a tortmgnt 

"There are too many effem- 
inate young men walking the 
streets jobless, living on the 
income of their parents. Others 
are being carried in safe posts 
created by foolish parents," he 
said. "Under the present sys- 
tem of education in the pub- 
lic schools here, social snob- 
bery ii the natural outcome." 

Mr. Lethem .reported the 
outcome of an experiment of 
a group of British university 
protessurs, govemmeni ofli- 
cials, and educationists, under 
the auspices of the Modem 
Educational Thought Move- 
ment, that has been going on 
at Mill Hill School, Middlesex, 
which has been so successful in 

reducing the number of effem- 
inate boys in England that 
headmasters of other sohools 
are anxious^ adopt the sys* 
tern gentrallr. 

At Mill HiU School, Leth- 
em said, by careful mixture of 
classes the boys start life with 
a great advantage over the or- 
dinary type of public school 
boy. They st»^ as good mix- 
ers. Results show thal^boys do 
better in that district than a 
large number of the softies 
who have been pampered with 
social superiority. . 

In London the number xt 
obviously eOeminate men is 
astoundmg. it is not «Mre- 
quent that one hears com- 
plaints from women of all 
classes that the men "are no 
g o o d to anyone but t h e m- 
selves" and prefer the society 
of their clubs or fraternities to 
tnat ot eligible girls and 
young women. 

Lack of co-education, in the 
first place, and the imperial- 
ist idea of male supremacy, in 
the second, are thought to be 
two of the chief causes for the 
actual breaking down of Eng- 
lish manhood. Extreme mas- 
culinity is always the forerun- 
ner of homosexuality.

would not tell who shot him last 

Monday afternoon. Following a 

call to'42n dand Ascot reporting 

a wounded man. Detectives Clark, 

Bradford and Phillips found a ' 

boy v.'ho told them that he was 

the son of the wounded man, 

whom he had met attempting to 

make his way home. 

Hurrying to the house the de- 
tectives called the ambulance, 
meanwhile questioning the vic- 
tim as to the identity of his at- 
tempted slayer. Giving evasive 
answers he mentioned several 
different names including that of 
a second cousin. Among the tales 
he told wa.s that he had gotten 
into an argument with some un- 
known young man over his name, 
and that his assailant had sud- 
denly pulled a gun and shot him. 
Judging that the victim may 
have been shot while committing 
some crime himself it was 
thought best to arrest him and 
place him in the pison ward at 
General hospital until he could 
stand trial. 

While dressing his wounds one 
of the bullets droooed cu*" of his 
clothes to the floor. It had made 
a flesh wound, but probably 
striking soine other obstruction 
first, its fcRTe had been spent. 
But for thii fact, attending sur- 
geons declare that the wound 
might have been fatal.

that he was carrying the gun 
without a permit because his life 
had been threatened. 

But the officers refused to be 
frightened, and Simmons was at- 
tempting to make bond at press 
time while awaiting trial,

sented to the directors of the Los 
Angeles Tuberculosis and Health 
association in connection with the 
10th annual early diagnosis cam- 
paign, which is now being con- 
ducted by the Christmas Seal 

Emphasis during the campaign, 
with the slogan "uncover tuber- 
culosis by modern methods — let 
your doctor be your guide," is 
on the detection of the disease 
during the earliest stages by j 
means of the tuberculin test and I 
x-ray examination. 

In cooperation with the Board I 
of Education the association is i 
assisting in providing this safe- 
guard to students of junior and 
senior high schools in Los Angel- 
es. Reports from three schools in- 
dicate that one out of every four 
students examined is infected 
tuberculosis germs. Of 3,112 test- 
ed, 790 students were found to 
be infected. Of this number, how- 
ever, only six were found to have 
active tuberculosis needing treat- 
ment. Discovered in such an ear- 
ly stage, the disease can be more 
quickly cured.

urge for this productive effort on 
the part of the child comes from

are experiences and freedom of

in explanation of the process of

call learning to design the pro-

'4 Every Porter A Repo'rtcr 


The boss called me on the carpet last week and 
told me to cut out my editorials under the above head- 
, ing and to try and be a little more foolish in my future 
ramblings under "Upton Says". I have never been 
mentioned as a humorist before, but I guess if that is 
the career the boss has got mapped out for me, the 
best I can do, if I wish to continue to write for the pa-

to get funny, so here' it is.

The Divine car missed his landing by least a foot and 
tore a piece out of the Hollywood cor. "John, the 
baptist," or "St. Peter" or whatever his name was 
stepped out of his green chariot, politely, and put his 
"Peace" sign on the angry Oriental who was jumping 
up and down shouting "police". 

"Peace," said John the Boptist, nee St. Peter. 

By this time the strong arm of the law walked up and 

grabbed him by the arm. "Peace", said the Divine 

man. "You're right, me lad," said the officer. It's 

.just a short piece, do you want to walk or ride.

dav morning at 8:5') A. M. He v.-as 
met the depot by th" writer, who 
brought him '^oeedily to liie scene 
of the tragedy. 

According to Mr<, Hnmmon.i. 
who was asleep in her bedroom 
in the front house, the first .-'h-' 
knew of the house being on fire, 
was when she was av.-akencd by 
j-gveral persons knocking on lier 
window who had been attracted 
by the large conflagration. She 
awakened in a daze, but had ihc 
p-'esence of mind to phon." for the 
'ire. department who arrived too 
•ate to sa\e Scrttt fom hi-^ iinMm.c- 
■y death. Mrs. Hammond had lust 
.-ecently returned to the city from 
3 lengthy vacation in Brawle\- 
^nd if she had followed hci' plans. 
«ould have been in Fresno Sun- 
day morning. In fact, her hand 
bags were still packed up for the 
trip to Fresno when the fire 
broke out. A brand ncv. auto- 
mobile of Mr. Hammond s was 
only slightly damaged, althouch 
the door to the garage in which 
it stood, was completely burned 
off. The fire spread to the two 
rear houses east of the blaze 
before the firemen could ,,bring it 
under control and wouM luuc 
undoubtedly burned the balance 
of the block but for the speedy 
arrival of the fire dept. John 
Scott was in all_ probability .'suf- 
focated by smok'e before lie met 
his death, his body was found ' 
b.v the back door of the kitchen ! 
where he was evidently over- 
come in his attempt to get out of 
the burning house.

Indicating that local banks are largely responsible for the grow- 
ing volume of home construction and the present active real estate 
market in and around Los Angeles, officers of California Bank re- 
cently returning from lengthy tours report that in Mi^dle-'Western 
and Southern states where real estate loans are looked on with dis- 
favor by banks, real estate ac- 
tivity and home construction con- 
tinue at a lov/ ebb and; are in 
no wise comparable with; the lo- 
cal healthy situation. 

This was the word received 
yesterday from J. G. Maulhardt. 
vico-pr6sident in charge of iShe 
Eighth and Central office of 
California Bank, >vho further as- 
serted that many banks in t h e 
South and Middle-West have 
practically adopted a "hands-off" 
policy -insofar as real estate loans 
are concerned with the result 
that residential building and 
realty activity in communities 
served by. those banks continue 
at depression levels. 

"Here in Southern California", 
said Maulhardt, '.'real estate loans 
are a popular, profitable and 
wholly acceptable form of invest- 
ment for savings money. They 
are being actively sought as a 
satisfactory outlet for the timie 
funds of banks, trust companies 
and other depository institutions 
as well as a prime investment for 
private lenders.

Of this number 1236 were for

Applications for licenses for 
the month were given as 98,475. 
an increase of 2,718 over the same

Among the most uniqu-c activi- 
ties for April reported by the 
units, was a Japanese Tea given 
by the Santa Ana Unit. The 
members wore Japanese cos- 
tumes, the fa\ors were small 
fans, and an interesting feature 
of the program was the singing 
of the Japanese national anthem 
in native tongue by the children 

tions placed on their licenses; 
nine had their licenses revoked; 
one voluntarily surrendered his 
licenses; and eight were suspend- 
ed for not obeying the re-exami-

Library Book I 

The phenomenal success of 
Mar'jaret Mitchell's "Gone with 
the Wind." that stirring novel of [ 
the Civil War and Reconstruction, 
has focused the attention of the 
reading public on all books deal- 
ing with the South. Those inter- 
ested in this subject, have a rich 
field to draw from since the past 
decade has seen the developrpenl 
of a veritable literary renaissance 
in the South. -There are h^oks 
about the old South and books 
about the new, written from both 
the Southern and Northern point ' 
of view. Some are romantic, 
glamorous and gay. while others | 
are realistic, somber and tragic. 
The reader may choose as he will. ' 

The old South is ably represent- 
ed b>- Caroline Gordon's "None 
Shall Look Back" a romance 
showing the conflict of the Civil 
War, in which Major General Na- 
than Forrest of the Confederate 
Army plays a major part: Stark 
Young's "So Red the Rose" and 
"Feliciana," two volumes which 
are sentimentally inclined to re- 
veal only the best side of the old 
■South: Royce Brier's "Boy in 
Blue," a vivid story of what the 
Civil War meant to an untutored 
'. Indiana farm boy in the Northern 
army, who entered the carnage 
1 with a feeling of futility and 
! emerged with new ideals and a 
sincere attachment for a Southern 
girl; Owen Bristow's "Deep Sum- 
mer," a romance of Louisiana in 
the days of the American Revolu- 
tion and the Louisiana purchase: 
Andrew Lytle's "The Long Night," 
a drama of private lives in the 
old South centered around Pleas- 
ant Mclvor. whose devotion to 
\engeance was long and relent- 
less: and "Absalom, Absalom!" by 
William Faulkner, a story of the 
founding, flourishing and decay 
of the plantation. 

Another type of Southern novel 
concerns itself principally with 
the Negro. Recent examples of 
this typo include Robert Rylee's 
"Deep, Dark River,' 'a tale of a 
simple in present day Mississip- 
pi, who is caught in the toils of 
the law through a plot and later 
defended by a white woman law- 
yer; "Black Thunder." by A r n a 
Bontemp.s, a splendid historical 
novel of Gabriel's slave insurrec- 
tion in 'Virginia around 1800; "Ol- 
lie Miss." by George Hender.son. 
which portrays a vital Negro her- 
nine who works on a f.irm in 
modem sharecropper style; '"Can- 
I dy," by L. M. Alexander, a novel 
of plantation life in South Caro- 
lina, which won a $10,000 prize: 
and ''Death is a little Man," by 
Minnie Moody, a story of the Ne- 
pro men and women who are the 

A final view brings us to the 
new South as portrayed by Grace 
Lumpkin in "A Sign for Cairv," 
which shows the present class 
struggle in a small Southern town 
through the deterioration of a 
former ruling family and the or- 
I ganization of black and white 
workers; James McConnaughey 
in "A Village Chronicle," reveal- 
ing the force of prejudice in a 
Southern college town, which 
(larives an octoroon student to sui-- 
. cide and a college professor to 
public protest: Berry Fleming in 
"Siesta" which might be termed 
the 'Mam street" of the Soiith 
I because it records a hot summer 
i in a typical Alabama town- Wel- 
, bourn Kelly, author of "Inchin' 
Along" whose latest book, "So 
I Fair a House" is concerned with 
modem labor troubles, but cent- 
ered around the family story of 
a well-to-do mill owner, whose 
wife has deserted him and her 
three children; Ward Greene in

LONDON, May 7. (By Fay M. | 
Jackson for ANP)— W i t h a! 
string of honors already attach- 
ed to her career as an entertain- 
er, Alberta Hunter arrived here 
Sunday from Paris to complete 
rehearsals for a series of tele- 
vision and variety appearances in 
London during coronation week. 

Miss Hunter came to London 
under contract to the British 
Broadcasting Corporation, as the 
outstanding woman artist of our 
race to participate on their pro- 
grams, described as "costly and 
elaborate", which will include 
distinguished personalities in 
various fields of entertainment 
I from all over the world. 
Spice of Paris 

Having, completed a world tcur 
of the most exclusive clubs, cafe;, 
and mu&ic halls of the Continent 
in Asia 

berta Hunter is called the Ameri- 
can Spice of Paris. As a style 
singer and hostess in Fred 
Payne's Artists Club, M o n t- 
martre, she draws a clientele 
ranging from the Bohemians of 
the artist quarter to the nobility 
of Europe. She has been the toast 
of Copenhagen . . . the nonpareil 
of jazz in Vienna . . . the muted 
verve of Egypt, and she synco- 
pated Jerticqlem right on down 
to the bricks. •■ "' 

As for New York, where she 
got her first taste of real prom- 
inence, she'll tell you with a 
witticism that makes her soark- 
ling, infectious humor the choice 
of sophisticated Parisients: 

"May Ella, your mother's name 

was Prosoerity itself 

around all those corners at 47th 
and Broadway." She starred at 
Connie's Inn. 

No one doubts but that Al- 
berta Hunter will do her race- 
and herself proud in livening up

claimed Elder Solomon Light- 
foot Michaux is he stepped up 
to the microphone last Sun- 
day and launched his promised 
"war" against Fath«r Divine, 
Harlem's famed cultist much 
in the public prints of late. 

But the Elder's attack 
brought a new combatant into 
the arena. Rev. A. E. Braddock 
of New Orleans who directed 
his criticism, not against Fa- 
ther Divine, but against Elder 
Michaux, who, he said was a 
mere fisherman in Newport 
News 'Va.. a few short years 
ago' "ini drive Elder Michaux 
ofr the air," he said, after the 
I elder had finished his radio 
I talk and left for a visit in Phi- 

During the. broadcast Mi- 
cHkux denounced Father Di- 
vine because "he breaks up the 
home and family, separates 
husband and wife, divests the 
community of all they possess 
of value, and njakes them nis 
angels. He is the devil incarn- 
ate The spirit he has to exalt 
himself as God is the same 
spirit Lucifer had in heaven 
when Michael^ cast him out. 

Rev. Braaut/ck's comment, 
after the radio talk: "First see 
the beaiii in your own eye 
then cast the mote out of your 
brothers. My dear elder, I do 
not think you are so perfect 
Tourself , frankly speaking . . • 
You surely :;^ve forgotten 
from whence you came. Rev. 
Braddock declared that he 
would have nothing to do with 
either Michaux or Father Di-

' ' the coveted coronation entertain- 
ment spotlight. 

Naturally endowed with all the 
elements of .good clean fun and 
entertainment that is rich in the 
folk lore of her people, she per- 
sists in being her genuine self, 
affects no upstage mannerisms, 
and succeeds in winning a vast 
and appreciative audience. 

Although Miss Hunter may be i 
pointed out as one of the most ; 
successful Americans in holding [ 
a fixed place as a topnotch en- : 
tertainer on the ever-changing j 
European scene . . . and t h i <^ 
Coronation selection certainly 
proves it . . . she is entirely un- • 
s •'Oiled and seems actually to : 
work more for the joy of it , 
than for direct monetary gain. ' 
She said she never gave a bet- I 
ter performance in her life than 
on last Easter Sunday night. 
Payne's club was packed and 
jarrimed with continentals and 
English folk who had swarmed 
into Paris to celebrate the week- 
end. A flock of her friends from 
Sweden and London, Islo, Dublin. 
Nice, and New York were draped 
on the tables and the floor, the 
bar, and the other half of the 
piano bench. Chorus girls from 1 
the Follies Bergcre had dropt in 
after the . show. The Duke and 
Duchess of Kent were quietly 
sipping champagne in a corner 
of the small, intimate room. 
Handsome ruddy-faced chaps 
from SwedetT lounged about in 
their colorful tweeds and chic 
I Parisien women of the petit

drinks, teased their lovers. 

Everyone who had any talent 
had joined in the entertainment.

ir" " 



Tuesday's election passed off quiet- 
ly, ending one of the most interesting 
campaigns ever waged in Los Angeles 
for the post of chfef executive. 

Mayor Frank L. Shaw conducted his 

- campaign strictly on a record of four 
" years of accomplishment for the ad- 
vancement of Los Angeles and her citi- 

Opposing him was Supervisor John 
Anson Ford who had nothing construc- 
tive to offer the voters and sought to 
befuddle the people by bringing accu- 
sations against the Show administra- 
tion by garbling records and bringing 
accusations that could not be substan- 
tiated by facts. In fact, the Ford end 
of the mayoralty contest wound up in 
an old-fashioned muck-raking, mud- 
-slinging campaign which the Shaw 
forces treated with silent contempt. 

Four years of good, clean govern- 
ment, which brought food, shelter and 
happiness to the inhabitants, proved a 
fortress that was impregnable to the 
bombardment of stench-bombs hurled 
in the hope to roily the people under 
the banner of a false god — John Anson 
Ford. ^ 

It's over now Frank L. Shaw has 
been retained at the helm, more than 
25,000 people having placed the stamp 
of approval upon his splendid services 
to the community which has increased 
as he advanced from Councilman to 
Supervisor, from which office he was 
drafted and placed in the office of ma- 

- yor. Shaw's re-election is a just re- 
ward and a high recognition of honest, 
faithful service to county and city. 

Again the Eastside saved the day for 
a tried, true friend, Mayor Frank L. 
Shaw. As in the primary, our vote 
clinched the election. The mayor had 
something over 25,000 majority which 
could hove been easily overcome hod 
the Eastside gone for Supervisor Ford. 

As we enter into four years more of 
progress and prosperity under Mayor 
Show, let's seek, to send him higher 
where greater benefits can bi^^Qv«!di 
for the people of the entire stiSle. A 
governor is to be elected two years 
hence and we know of no finer timber 
for this high office than that farsight- 
ed humanitarian, Frank L. Shaw. Start 
the drive now and we'll land him in Sac- 

We are pleased with the results in 
every contest and feel that the people 
will be served honestly and faithfully 
in the several places filled by the elec- 
tion. The trade exposition lost because 
black voters were completely ignored 
in the appointment of committees to 
landle the affair. We feel that to be 
left out in the making of a proposition 
to promote trade, growth and activity 
for the city we'd be again ignored in 
:ase of success. It was a close shove 
— defeated by only two votes. The 
presence of one or two block Americans 
on the Committee of 1 5 would have re- 
sulted in a victory by several thousand. 

The Municipal Bus proposal had our 
disapproval from its inception. Adop- 
fion of this proposal would not only 
love unloaded a bus soles graft upon 
the people but increased taxes and in- 
ireosed hazards to life and limb. 

Pensions for city employes and 
teachers had our unqualified support

The House Expenditures Committee 
nas approved a bill that would require 
the government to give preference to 
American citizens. Representative 
Stornes, Democrat, of Alabama, is fa- 
ther of the measure which is so worded 
that it would bar aliens from holding 
Works Progress Adminisration jobs. 

We are heartily in accord with such 

3 measure and hope to see it rigidly en- 

, forced to the letter. Many times have 

we noticed large groups of aliens em- 

^.pJoyed on government projects while 

"black and white Americans (many of 

• wNbm were veterans) stood at the door 

: of some relief headquarters seeking 

.;! food and raiment for their families. 

J ' True the Negro is discriminated 

■ ogoinst on these jobs but with the elim- 

; iridtipn of non-citizens his chances for 

i-employment would be two as against 

m'no'H. Private corporations should 

be potriotic enough to apply the same 

j'ufer in th€ employment of labor.

We Reverse Ourselves 

A blow torch is more convincing than .logic. 
When a mob of 100 white men seize two Negro- 
es in Mississippi, hauMhem in a bus to the scene 
of a murder they had just denied committing, and 
torture them to death by searing their bodies with 
a blow torch, congressmen with legalistic minds 
can still get up in the House of Representatives 
to argue that an anti-lynching bill constitutes an 
unconstitutional invasion of the rights of the 

On the morning of the very day two men were 
fiendishly murdered near Ducic Hill, Miss., an 
editorial appeared in this paper reiterating our 
opinion that though the objectives of the anti- 
lynching bill pending in Congress were commend- 
able we did not believe that the enactment of such 
a law would curb the evil. 

But though we still hold these doubts, we iiere- 
tvith reverse ourselves completely and call upon 
the Congress of the United States to take any ac- 
tion which in its opinion gives any promise of 
checking th^ barbarism of the South. It Is no 
longer a. question of what we think. So long a.s 
any considerable group of men believe that a plan 
they propose has any chance of preventing such 
fiendish acts or punishing such fiends, we will 
hereafter throw whatever influence we have be- 
hind their plan. «<|MinM| 

And we call on every laii-ruinaea mari and ev- j 
ery warm-hearted woman among our more than j 
10,000 reader, who are proud that they are South- 
erners, to join with us in doing our part to remove 
this stigma from the South. Today, if you do not 
relish the stench of burning flesh and do not en- , 
joy the screams of tortured men, telegraph or I 
write the Hon. Thomas G. Burch, member of Con- 
gress from the Fifth Virginia District, and the 
Hon. Carter Glass and the Hon. Harry F. Byrd. 
senators of Virginia, and ask them to support the 
Gavagan bill or any other bill which offers any 
hope of preventing lynchings. 

Tell them that the honor of the South is more 
important than the rights of the Southern States. 

Tell them that the South earnestly implores the 
Federal Government to do what the Southern 
States have failed to do. 

Tell them that the Southern people are decent 
and honest and human and not fiends as a Mis- 
sissippi mob represented them to be. 

Tell them that a blow torch has convinced you, 
as it convinced THE REGISTER, that represen- 
tatives of a disgraced South should bow their 
heads in Congress and vote in favor of the most 
drastic anti-lynching bill submitted to that body . 
—(From the Danville (Va.) Register. 


Just now American industry along 
every tine is being menaced by strikes. 
What was once known and recognized 
as organized labor has become disor- 
ganized labor. Divided into two sep- 
arate bodies they are engaged in a bit- 
ter struggle to eliminate each other 
from control. The battle has reached 
the stage where strikes ore being stag- 
ed for no other reason than to wrest 
control of the body recognized by em- 
ployers. Plants are picketecl, heads 
cracked and other forms of lawlessness 
fxjt in force, thus halting business op- 
erations and inflicting punishment up- 
on consumers. 

This along with strikes for wage in- 
creases, union recognition is fast reach- 
ing the unbearable stage. A heretofore 
sympathetic public is becoming fed up 
on the antics of these organized mobs 
and will sooner or later reach the point 
of taking action against this disorder- 
ly program. The mode of procedure 
brands them as nothing more than or- 
ganized mobs bent upon taking com- 
plete control of business institutions 
and conduct it according to the will and 
way of the union. 

California we are pleased to note has ! 
token a forward step against this un-j 
lawful method of dealing with labor 
grievance by putting a low thru the 
legislature against the greatest men- 
ace of all^the sit-down strike. Such 
action is classed as trespassing and il- 
legal fxjssession of property and carries! 
a good, stiff penalty. \ 

We note, among other things, where' 
some high-powered agitator has arriv- 
ed in Los Angeles and is calling o meet- j 
ing of more than 600 members of the; 
Butchers and Meat Cutters, which is; 
looked upon as a gesture toward pull- 
ing strike in the close future. Such an \ 
act would not only work a hardship on 1 
the people but would cause untold suf- 
fering and misery. It is hoped and be- 
lieved that the butchers will not yield 
to the plea of highly paid organizers, 
and if they hove a grievance we believe 
that employers will treat them in an 
orderly, sane and satisfactory manner. 

The motion picture strike is a dis- 
grace. Thousands of dollars worth of 
property hos been destroyed by vandals 
and many are nursing sore heads. The 
country must be freed from this men- 
ace if it takes state legislation to bring 
it obout ~ .

year-old battleship off the coast of Spain. Could an 
air bomb sink a modern battleship? This week in 
London and Washington, capitals of the world's two 
greatest nqvol powers, experts ore supposed to be 
onxiously analyzing the possibilities. But it's sofe 
to say they're not really worried For they know that 
on attack from the air, though it might sink cruisers, 
destroyers or submaries, has not one chance in a thou- 
sand to sink an up-to-date man o' war. Technicians 
have proved with figures and laboratory tests that on 
air bomb cannot gain enough speed in falling to pene- 
frote the thick deck armor now used on battleships. 
And on ex-U. S. war ace, now an expert on the tech- 
nical side of aviation, told in a recent magazine arti- 
cle how virtually impossible it is for a bombing plane 
to dodge a modern ship's anti-aircraft guns. "Avia- 
tors may be a dashing lot," he said, "but in bombers 
they're no match for a calculating professor of bal- 
listics calmly plotting their ruin from the deck of a 
battleship" ' 


I's a quite notorious fact by now that Congress 
has been in Washington since New Year's doing prac- 
tically nothing at all. So naturally this week people 
ore asking why the nation's new neutrality bill had to 
be rushed through both houses in one day and dis- 
patched by airplane to the President so he could sign 
it just a few hours before the deadline of May 1 , when 
the old neutrality legislation expired. The answer is 
it was planned that way. One group wanted strict 
mandatory provisions in the act Another wanted 
wide discretionary power left to the President. So 
the latter group, having control of the conference 
framing the bill in its final form, wrote their own tick- 
et and held it up for a last-minute rush that would 
permit no changes. A shot-gun ceremony, they soy. 


Although the main office of heoven is still Har- 
lem, where Father "l-om-god" Divine holds forth be- 
tween trips to court on a stabbing charge, a branch 
office of the Negro volholla is opening in California 
this week. But Californians not particularly over- 
joyed by the "god's" plon to bring in a colony of dus- 
ky adherents to run the lumber mill he just bought 
north of Ukioh, may not be worried for long. "God" 
seems to be having financial troubles which might not 
permit him to keep his holdings or work them. Only 
the other day one of his "mission houses" in New York 
was put on the auction block because he failed to 
keep up payments on a $3000 loan from the HOLC. 
His source of funds has been long o mystery, but re- 
putedly inexhaustible. The goose that laid golden 

eggs must hove died.

Two civil wars hove got tangled up in Georgia, 
and now it's difficult to tell whether the old war be- 
tween the A. F. L. and the C. I. 0. in the split ranks 
of labor. Until this week it seemed to be the latter, 
with organizers from the two groups competing for 
members in the textile industry. Then on A. F. L. 
organizer, himself not a Southerner, framed a slogan 
which inadvertently set off the fireworks. "We ore 
truly marching through Georgia with the A. F. L. ban- 
ner high," he said. To the South, of course, "march- 
ing through Georgia" means General Sherman's in- 
vasion which laid waste the heart of the South. That 
organizer must hove skipped a few chapters when he 
read "Gone With the Wind". 


Dear Editor: 

There r re some people you like j 
to talk about: Einstein, our ' 
Booker T., FDR, the man who de- 
signed the skyscraper, Chrysler, 
or Hew to 'he North Pole, the 
! man -vho dug a ditch or toiled so 
assiduously in the c tton. 

Now, I share this idiosyncrcy 
with you and oftimes I write of 
' these, whom I am fortunate 
enough to call friends, and ther*"- 
I fore just simple, unpretentious, 
everyday, rain or shinp folks. 
There's the ticket collector at a I 
cinema, an usher at the church, j 
a simple "-egtauranteur, a singer, 
( a dancer, a lawyer, a pastor, a j 
' policeman. Then sometimes i 
; there comes along something 
I rare, unusual, as the immovable, 
j unutterable faith of Mis."- Arman- 
da Burdette, comely, energetic 
chur-h enthusiast, whio miracu- 
I lously recovered from a broken ' 
' back. I 

I Among these people there 
stands -nv grandfather. Christian 
gentleman, resident of Los An- 
geles twenty-seven years, em- j 
ploye of the CUy Collection de- 
partment twenty-.,ix years, iiged 1 
to the degree of about seventy- [ 
eight years. His fellow worke'-s 
faithful servants of the city fc '■ 
many years with no provision for 
their economic security when 
they are too old to do au ht but 
dream of stronge:- days, unless 
"ayes" have it on Charter 
Amendment No. 1 on the ballot 
of May 4. 

This situation in. igues me. and 
I have written of it, hoping you 
will f'i-.d space for it in your pa- 
per. From tirr.e to time 1 hope ' 
to write of fblks you and I like 
to talk about, knowing that your ' 
organ 'vill add dignity to my I 
humble works, interest and re- 1 
finement v your oapei . j 

Thanking you for your atten- j 
tion to -his matter, I am. veiy | 
truly yours. 


Dear Editor: 

I wish you would say some- 
thing about the' long, boresome i 
programs that are put on by civic 
bodies of our race. Not only in ' 
political times, but in churches ' 
and at other place;, the strinc of 
readin. . foIos, short talks and 
comments, that one must sit 
through before hearing the main ' 
speaker, is nothing sh' of crim- 

For example, last Sunday at 
the monthly meeting of the , 
Breakfast Club it was nearly 11 ' 
o'clock before Mayor Shaw, Aho 
was the chief speaker, was al- 
lowed to take the floor and the 
breakfast started shortly after 

Besides boring the listeners 
"stiff, such a display is flagrant 
discourtesy to "the distinguished 
personality who is invited as the 
stellar attraction if the program. 

I hope you will say something 
in your column. "On the Side- 
walk", which 1 reac' with avid in- 
terest .-ach week, and that our 
leaders will take it in the right .. 

Sincerely. j 


racial ego if we were to attend ' 
one of the track meet; now :.i 
session on Fridays at the Jeffer- 
son high school. 

They have one of the fin-st 
teams in the city at Jefferso i 
and with rare exception;, they 
are all colo ed boys performing: 

Never before in mv life have I 
seen a finer set of" youngsters. 
They put a new premium on i 
beauty. ' Alongside their dark, 
glowing, smooth skins, white 
looks as lustreles.- as a London ' 

When they run thev ar> swift, 
pulsating symphonies One could 
more than wax poetic over them. 
And as they l^ap and dash about 
the track, always head and chest 
before the white '^oys, my racial ! 
pride soars. 

For good, self satisfied feel- 
ing, I recommend - day at a Jef- 
ferson ■ igh sjhool track meet.''

his home team andone of thebcst in the Negr- National league. 
They have jumped to Santo. Domingo, which is taking a "Cuban ' 
raid" this year on the best American ball player. For doing so. 
w.ithout giving notice the world famous pitcher andsix other colored 
diamond stars iiave been dropped from the ffegrcNational league 
by Ferdinand Q. Morton, the Judge Landis of AfrcAmerican base- I 

Of course, tou can censure Paige for this ant the number of 
Dther times he hopped or failed to keep dates, nc only with the i 
Trawfords but with the Royal Giants out here in Wirer League play, I 
3ut you can't blame him for trying to get more mony. The pay for : 
:olored ball players is so miserably poor that you culd hardly ex- | 
oect any of them to turn down an offer of more mony with another 
league. After all, "the laborer is worthy of his hire' the Bible says, 
jnd this is one of its greatest truths. 

The rest of the deserters were Perkins, Crawforccatcher; Palm, ' 
catcher of the Black Yankees; "Showboat ' Thomas, 1-st baseman of 
the New York Cubans; Taylor, the Cubans' pitcher; nd both Craw- 
ford and Spearman, outfielders for the Cubans.

K. 0. of Klick 

Toe to toe, chest to chest, mus- 
cles rippling over brown body 
and white body as they crashed 
together with fists flying like 
windmills! Two ring gladiators. 
Henry Armstrong and F r a n k i <? 
Klick sprang into action when 
the bell clanged for the first 
round at the Olympic Audito- 
rium, last Tuesday night. 

The crowd that packed the vast 
auditorium, leaped to their feet 
in their excitement, many stand- 
ing in their seats, as for the full 
three minutes, the two champi- 
ons battled like demons in the 
fastest, most furious first round 
ever fought in that arena. 

The second round was a carbon 
copy of the first, neither deter- 
mined fighter giving an inch ex- 
cept grudgingly. But two rounds 
later. Klick, junior lightweight 
title-holder, was led from the 
ring, a" technical knockout vic- 
tim, and Henry Armstrong, fea- 
therweight champion, bowed to 
the thundering cheers of his col- 
ored and white admirers. Klick's 
trainer, Frankie Doyle, sent a 
towel sailing into the ring just 
thj-ee seconds before the end of 
the fourth, when the San Fran- 
cisco sensation had become un- 
able to protect himself. 
Fought Gamely 

But the "Little Tan Tornado" 
had no easy time of it, for com- 
ing out desperately in the sec- 
ond, Frankie opened with a fast 
body attack, then shot a hard 
overhand right that landed flush 
on Armstrong's chin. His nose 
R'as also bleeding slightly at the 
bell. The end drew in sight in 
the third when, after changing 
his tactics and attempting to run 
and jab a la Ramage, he still 
could not keep the relentless lit- 
tle menace at a safe distance. 

Armstrong weighed a legiti- 
mate 131 pounds. Klick's weight 
was announced at 132V2. 

Davey Abad, the Panamanian 
stablemate of Barney Ross, got a 
TKO over Johnn\- Jones. Art 
Johnson, 164, Lamar De Lavilla- 
des star, flattened Joe Ortega, 
165 in 1:53 seconds of the first 
round with a wicked left hook 
to the jaw. It was the special 
event and slated for four heats.

Pound for pound and inch for ^ 
inch. Henry Armstrong is the 
greatest fighter in the whole, 
wide world today. 

He proved it, Tuesday night, at 
the Los Angeles Olympic Audi- 
torium when he annihilated Fran- 
kie Klick of San Francisco in 
four rounds before a jammed 
house — a most splendid tribute 
to Armstrong's drawing power. 

Armstrong, who fights Wally 
Hally on Tom Gallery's great 
fight card at Wrigley Field, May 
24th, put up the most impress- 
ive showing of his spectacular 
career against Klick. The San 
Franciscan didn't have a China- 
man's chance. 

I When you consider that Klick

i terweight champion Barney Ross;

win the junior lightweight champ- 
I ionship; boxed four times against

Well! The conclusion is obvious. 
Bill Smith, inspector of the 
California State Athletic Com- 
missioner, a former newspaper- 
man of note,, and a real authority 
on fight matters, remarked, af- 
ter the Klick fight, Tuesday 

"What would Armstrong have 
done with fellows like Abe At- 
tell, Terry McGovem, 'Little Cho- 
colate,' Young Corbett? He's the 
most cold-blooded killer of the 
ring I've ever seen!" /^

Henry Armstrong and Trainer Eddie .JVteade Open Camp 




CHICAGO, May -7 — We'll have to wait many a day for another 
Jesse Owens, but there are still athletes good enough to keep Afra- 
merica at the top of the track and field heap. The recent Penn and 
Drake relays gave us the first good look at what to expect during 
this year's outdoor season. 

The spotlight is focused direct- 
ly on four brown boys — Mack 
Robinson of Pasadena Junior col- 
lege, Jimmy Smith of Indiana. 
Eulace Peacock of Temple and 
John Woodruff or Pittsburgh. I 
have not included our high jump- 
er because their places are al- 
ready assured and none did any- 
thing startling at the relays. 

You never heard of Robinson 
until last year when he made the 
Olympic team and chased Owens 
into a new world's record at 200 
meters. This spring, he has been 
doing right well in the century 
sprint, but his broad jumping is 
his best bet. Nobody in the na- 
tion has bested his 25 feet S^j 
inch mark this season and there 
is a good chance that he may 
make 26 feet. Robinson should be 
the best in the nation at the 220 

captain of the Los Angeles J. C. 
team, with a recent mark of 6ft. 

Apparently the Cub cinder 
artists were confident that they 
could maintain their pacemaking 
stride. This season they have de- 
feated the Glandel, Long Beach 
and Santa Monica Jaysees: won 
the unofficial title in the South- 
ern California college relays at 
Occidential; tied unofficially 
with Pasadena J. C. in the Long 
Beach relays for the first place; 

and the broad jump. At Drake, 
he also ran the 440 fast enough 
to catch Cagle, Oklahoma Baptist 
ace, who ran in Berlin last sum- 
mer, who was five yards in front, 
and beat him to the tap>e by a foot. 
Robinson, on the basis of this 
showing, looms as another poten- 
tial record breaker in the quart- 
er mile. 

Now there is Jimmy Smith, 
whose amazing performances at 
the three quarters and the mile 
enabled Indiana to win the dis- 
tance medley relay and set a new 
world record in the four mile 
relay. Smith ran the mile in 4 
minutes 14^isecond — -the second 
time, to The best of our know- 
ledge, that a sepia has made that 
mark. The only other to equal 4: 
14 was Gus Moore. Jimnjy has the 
rest of this season and all of next 
year for competition; he may 
give San Romani, Glenn Cun- 
ningham, Gene Venzke and Don 
Lash a real run for their money. 
Keep your eye on him. 

It was extremely heartening to 
learn that Eulace Peacock has al- 
most regained the form that car- 
ried him to victories over Jesse 
Owens at 100 meters and the 
broad jump. His best time at the 
Penn relays was 9.7 for the 100 
yards, which shows that he is 
ready to fall heir to the title of 
"world's fastest human" at this 

boxer, released by Jbck Russell, 
manager, effective April 28, 1937.

JAMES DAVIS, formerly a life guard at Kansas City's big munici- 
pal pool, had to sv;im a mile in towering waves during the recent 
filming of Twentieth Century-Fox' -Slave Ship". Besides being 
an all-round stunt man, he is tb' ' ■ ■^''r and diver, white 

or black, in Hollywood. 


THE LONG threatened studio workers' strike is on now, called last 

Saturday morning. Lines of pickets were established at the 
gates of ten film studios b\'' nearly 3000 striking studio craftsmen, 
threatening oossible paralvsis nr' Clarence, Louise Beavers,

Lil Randolph 
tabbed 'girl of 
many voices' 

To be able to sing in one voice 
is a God-given gift of talent but 
to be able to range into more than 
one voice is not only an example 
of natural ability but alto of ac- 
quired technique, resultant of 
culture and study. One of the 
few singers who can accomplish 
this entertaining as well as re- 
markable feat is Miss Lillian 
Randolph who has just completed 
a year at the Paradise Oardens, 

"Lil", as she is familiarly call- 
ed by her many friends and by 
the Hollywood crowds who seem 
never to tire of seeing and hear- 
ing her, has a natural contralto 
voice. But in the midst of a note 
or a bar she shifts her tone to 
soprano, alto, and even bass, 
seemingly without effort. The 
effect is startling as well as pleas- 
ing and her hearers never stop 
marvelling as to how she effects 

Miss Randolph came to the 
coast from Detroit in January, 
1935, after completing four years 
at the Palm Garden Cafe there. 
Her first engagement, secured 
shortly after her arrival, was at 
the Club Alabam from which, af- 
ter a long run, she joined Ralph 
Cooper's Revue at the Burbank 
theatre. She was headlined there 
for fourteen weeks, leaving as 
popular as when she first started. 

When she left the Burbank she 
accepted an engagement at the 
Paradise and has been there ever 

In addition to her vocal talents 
she is an excellent actress and 
monologist with a large store of 
side-splitting comedy. Her im- 
personation of Mae West, disguis- 
ed in an expensive blonde wig, is 
such a scream that it has been 
held over two and three weeks 
at each presentation. 


"Slave Ship", the already famous story of the last of the slave 
trade and that throws more light on the bitter history of the race, 
did not really finish until last week. Actual photography was fin- 
ished several weeks ago when 75 worked in one day, but an added 
scene of the rescue of 25 men swimmers had to be taken, so Charles 

Butler selected 15 of his largest 
and beat swimmers and they ./ere 
all transported to the fathomless 
ocean off Santa Monica. 

A large number of expert life- 
guards were disguised as sailors 
and picked the men up one by 
one, each of whom had to keep 
afloat until recued and hauled 
into the lifeboats. The scene was 
made as the finale to the burn- 
ing and sinking of a slave trans- 
port on which the previously 
filmed cargo of seven hundred 
and fifty men and women were 

The swimmers were Morgan 
Rochester, Jack Spears, Clarence 
Gordon, Neil and Jack Cllsby, Jo 
Baker, Curtis Hamilton, Buster 
Columbus, Noble Blake, James 
Davis, Sol Woods, Irvhi Smith, 
Richard Ponson, with J. A. Rob- 

ertson in charge. 

Contrary to a previous nearly 
fatal incident, when several men 
were hurt and nearly drowned in 
the studio's artificial lake, all 
went well and the scene was com- 
pleted without mishap. 

Sound f jr one of the complet- 
ed scenes also was completed last 
week to run on the sound strip to 
fit the action of the scene. It 
was a chant in the Swahili lan- 
guage by n large number of sing- 
ers, eighteen of them men and 
the rest women. 

They were Nathan Curry, Geo. 
Turner, James Adamson, Ted 
Collins, Frank Allen, Reginald 
Anderson, Willis Williams, Har- 
old Farley, Jack Williams, Ed 
Patrick, William Brodadus, Eliza- 
beth Ashley, Dorothy Wooten and 
Agatha Hayes.

Les Kite and his Cotton Club 
orchestra bid farewell to Los An- 
geles early this past Monday 
morning after playing to a pack- 
ed house at the Elks hall a few 
hours before. Les and his band 
drew one of the largest crowds 
that has ever been witnessed at 
this spot and he and the mem- 
bers of his band was really giv- 
en one of the finest send-oft that 
has ever been given to any such 

film industry. Fortunately, for 
the colored actors and extras, se- 
quences in which they were used 
were completed before the b i g 
studio strike affecting II of the 
major studios. Hence, last week 
and the week before, were quite 
busy ones in the sepia film colo- 
ny, enabling quite a few to tide 
over the bad break a long drawn- 
out strike will bring. 

CHARLES BUTLER, busy cast- 
ing director for Central Cast- 
ing Bureau, placed film players 
at a number of studios during the 
week, but there were a number 
of others in the higher wage 
bracket whose en'.ployment 
comes through agents employed 
by them. These are ti;e bit and 
part players from S25 a day up. 
Most of these have received their 
screen training and experience 
as extras under Butler, then ad- 
vanced from the rank's by being 
capable when opportunity shook 
the door latch.

"Build your own studiosl" If 
in your pride, sophistication and

ed of seeing Negroes play them-

mand goes to these super-sensi- 
tive folk, who for lack of more 
I>oignant evils to write about 
have been spattering their noxi- 
ous ink on the innocent heads of 
Bill Robinson, Hattie McDaniels, 

resa Harris. Eddie Anderson, 
Mme. Sul-te-wan and other sepia 
actors in the movies. And they 
are artists, not types: real, hard- 
working, portrait painters of 
characters, not accidental pick- 
ups from the crowds on the street 
corners in the Negro section in 
any city. 

■Their work is just as honorable 
as that of Charlie Chaplin, Joe 
Penner. Bob Burns, ZaSu Pitts, 
Patsy Kelly. Henry Armetta,- or 
any of the hundreds of white'co- 
medians whose work we praise <

Three cheers for the current 
nation-wide drive for a "return 
to the flesh" for colored enter- 
tainers, actors and orchestras. 
We can't dictate to Hollywood 
for the simple reason that we do 
not own one inch; of a studio lot, 
hence we cannot insist that they 
use stories for filming which in- 
clude large Negro sequences. 

Only about one picture in ev- 
ery ten < ground out by the major 
and ten independent picture cor- 
porations need even colored ex- '

or threats they could make pic- 
tures from now on and not use 
any Negroes at a';.

beings trod the boards and the 
audiencfes felt the intimacy and

would rather hear this "cat"

the greatest. A few years ago 
Lewis was the featured drummer

Mother, the giver of beauty,

the best friend of man, is seldom

achievers. We proclaim the king,

Muir almost took the class B 
meet from Hoover high, leading 
all the way up to the last event, 
the pole vault. Here Hoover scor- 
ed a first and third to win the 
championship by three points. 

Ruffin, barred from competi- 
tion during all the early season 
meets because of doctors' orders, 
put on a sizzling performance in 
the B hundred. He outran Clapp, 
his team mate and Needham of 
Hoover, to set one of the three 
new league records in 10.1 sec- 
onds. The former record was held 
by Brown of South Pasadena at 
10.3. James came back with a 
good leap of 21 feet 3V4 inches In 
the broad jump to takethjrd; it 
was won by Oates of Hoover at 
22 feet. 

Coleman was by far the class 
of the B 220 yard dash. He ran 
his best rac*\ of the season and 
tied the leagueT^cord'^of 22.9 sec- 
onds. This record was also set by 
Brown of South Pasadena in 1935. 
Coleman and Ruffin later teamed

Co-copfain of Patod«na J. C. track t«om eem- 
p«r«d to JmM Owant; in Mnior y«or at school; 
may attand Orogon or Frotno Stat* next yopr 

To soy that Pasadena has within its city the 
greatest amateur track and field athlete in the world 
todov' is no idle boost. 

Co-Coptain Matthew (Mock) Robinson of the 
Posadeno Junior College Bulldogs, has proved thi* 

fact in more ways than one. We 
would rate th« Olytnplc hero as 
great, if not greater than the im- 
mortal Jesse Owens. The truth 
of this statement is evident when 
we compare the achievements of 
the two in question. While Rob- 
inson's marks have not surpassed 
those of Owens, he has several 
times run the 440 in close to 48 
seconds, oroving that he not only 
has speed, but endurance besides. 
Then, too. Mack was barred from 
athletics until his senior year in 
high Khool because of a suppos- 
edly defective heart, while Ow- 
ens enjoyed four years of inter- 
scholastic competition. 

Mack's successful career began 
back in 1934 at Muir Tech when 
he led a five-man track team to 
a state championship. And since 
that time he has been a leader 
among men on the track and 
field. Not only has he been a 
true champion on tjie track, but 
In private life as well. In the 
several years I have known Rob- 
inson, never have I witnessed a 
time when he has tak^n a drink 
or smoked a cigarette. This is the 
indication of the highest type of 

His outstanding accomplish- 
ment in 1935, while not attend- 
ing school, was the winning of 
high point honors at the SanU 
Barbara Open meet. His record 
to date is even greater than that 
of last year when he placed sec- 
ond to Owens in the Olympic 
Games 200 meters. Already this 
season the Bulldogs have had 
eight dual meets and two relay 
carnivals. In all the dual meets. 
Mack' has won thiree or more 
events. While doing this, he 
twice broke the existing world 
junior college 220 yard mark, the 
best time being 20.9 seconds, and 
has credit for the best broad 
jump mark in the United States 
to date. 

The fastest competition was 
met at Drake a few Saturdays 
ago. There, Robinson won the 
broad jump at 25 feet 5V4 inches, 
placed fourth in the open hun- 
dred, on a disputed decision, and 
ran on two relay teams. He add- 
ed another great performance to 
his record when he sent the Pa- 
sadena sprint medley team off 
to a tremendous lead in his 230 
leg, to later have it lost. The 
Bulldogs' Bobby Madrid placed a 
bang-up second to Blackmore of 
Pittsburgh (Kansas) Teachers. 

The climax of the meet and 
probably the greatest perform- 
ance came when the star anchor- 
ed the PJC one mile relay team 

to victory over such amiable foes 

as Compton J. C, holder of the 

jaysee record; Oklahoma Bap- 
tist, last year's winners of the 

race; Emporia Teachers, Butler 

university and Fresno State. The 

race was put up to Robinson and 

Harold Cagle of Oklahoma in the 

final lap. Robinson received the 

baton 10 yards behind and very 

soon pulled up to Cagle, holding 

this position untU the last 150 

yards of the home stretch. But 

Mack's superior speed and fin- 
ishing kick, after racing neck and 

neck for 50 yards, was too much 

for Caglt and he won going away. 

This was a remarkable feat due 

to the fact the Pasadenan had 

never run a 440 in big-tijne com- 
petition before and Cagle was a 

member of the 1936 Olympic 1600 

meter relay team. 

In a recent interview, some in- 
teresting information revealed 

about Mack's trip to Des Moines, 

his plans for the suromer after 

the schedule is completed, and 

his' intentions for next year. 

When asked to comment on the 

meet, the things that impressed 

him most were: The extreme cold 

weather (it was so cold that he 

did not take off his sweat suit in 

th« mile rtlay until the thitd man 

had run half of his lap). The

On Friday, Nadiene Robinson 
gave a house party in honor of 
Mack and Seward Mounday. 
Then on Saturday after the meet, 
the Drake College Keys and Kap- 
pa Alpha Psi fraternities enter- 
tained, at two separate affairs, 
som% 500 guests in honor of the 
Negro athletes. Both affairs 
were dances. 

The season is not half over for 
Robinson ^ there are several big 
meets yet to come. He has already 
received an invitation to compete 
in the AAU meet at Milwaukee, 
Wis., on July 2-3 and the Pan- 
American Games July 15-18. Vic- 
tory in the AAU meet qualifies 
for the Pan-American Games 
which in turn C|ualifies for Euro- 
pean and Oriental tours this 

Several countries have already 
expressed desires .'or American 
teams to tour in their country. 
Sweden leads the list with a re- 
quest for 30 men, followed by 
Japan with 15. Others are Ger- 
many, France and England with 
requests for 10 each. 

This is Robinson's last year at 
PJC and when asked what his 
plans for next year were, he 
could not be definite, although he 
intends to continue in athletics. 
He has received offers to attend 
Oregon State and Fresno State 
colleges. If he does not decide 
to continue in school, he will run 
unattached in open meets. 

2 lead Cubs to 
division title 


Cubs ride to victory on 
flying heels of Hoi Sin- 
clair, and Bob Cuthnie 

The Crimson and Blue of LAJC 
scored 75 points to become 1937 
Western Division champs after a 
close three way battle with (lien- 
dale and Santa Monica Jay sees 
for the pay-off berth. On the fly- 
ing heels of Hal Sinclair and Bob 
Cushnie came the victory, as 
they combined with a quartet of 
discua tossers to overtake Glen- 

Hal Sinclair, sensational Crim- 
son Comet, zoomed down the fur- 
long to win going away in il.Ss, 
a new LAJC record and tying the 
old divisional mark. He romp- 
ed through the century dash in 
9.9 without being, threatened. 
Sinclair called the coin better 
than McRae and Hansen of Glen- 
dale to win the high point man 
trophy after the trio had scored 
10 points each to tie. 

Bob Ci#hnie running third leg 
On the relay, made up a 3 yard 
deficit and finished with 3 to 
spare allowing Wyatt anchor 
ma'^to stave oflf Conn of Glen- 
dale by a yard and help dhich 
the meet. Bob also ran a spark- 
ling third in the 220 and took 
5th in the javelin U>$s to earn 3 

Wilfred Hines hit his old sprint 
'°™ to edge out second in the 
100 yard dash behind Sinclair 
and overcome a poor start to take 
5th in the lows. Wallace Sides 
ran third by Inches in the quart- 
er and ran a bang-up relay leg 
as second man.

Robinson in 
iron mon role 
steols show 

For the fifth time in as many 
weeks. Mack Robinson, the pride 
of Pasadena, played the role of 
iron man. 

The past fireek end saw him 
walk off with hl^ point honors 
for the third consecutive year in 
the Santa Barbara open track 
and field meet. In addition to 
this, he lowered his own 220 
mark of 21.4 set in 1936, one 
tenth of a s*cond. His time was 

Probably the greatest accom- 
plishment of the day was the 
Bulldog captain's double victory 
in the sprints. In both the hun- 
dred and 220, he defeated Ran- 
dolph Carter, fast developing 
Whittier CoUege star, avengmg 
a previous defeat earlier this sea- 
son. In both races. Carter was 
out of his holes like a bullet and 
led out the first 60 yards but Rob- 
inson, with his incredible fmUh- 
Ing kick took him at the tape. 
Mark also captured the broad 
jump at 24 feet 4V4 inches. 

Although he failed to get mto 
the point column, Fritr Anderson 
ran one of the best races of the 
season when he placed fourth to 
Price of Compton in the junior 
college 100. The time, 9.8 sec- 
onds, was exceptionally good. 

Nate Moreland, steadily improv- 
ing, tossed the javelin 165 feet 
but was not good enough to place. 
Moreland's best throw for the 
year is 180 feet made at Sacra- 

PJC tied with Compton for 
team honors, both collecting 21 
points. In the open class the Bull- 
dogs were second to the strong 
use frosh team. The Trojan 
Frosh scored iiVt points and the 
locals 21. 

Tonight at 8 the PJC team will 
tangle with the mighty Compton 
J. C in the long awaited meet at 
Compton track. 

The strength of each team is 
centered in the identical events 
and the outcome of the meet will 
be a toss up. both teams depend- 
ing upon the breaks and come 
through performances to win. 
"^If co-captain Robinson tries 
his usual four events, and it is 
likely he will, he will be in for 
a hectic evening. The Tartars 
boast one of the best Jiurdlers in 
this section in the person of Rus- 
s«l. Russel has run -this race in 
23.3 seconds already this year. 
Price will be the man to beat in 
the sprints. Moreland will have 
to do better than 180 feet to win 
the javelin. 

The Pasadena Frosh team tra- 
vel to Riverside tomorrow for 
the Southern California sectional 
meet The Bullpttpe stand a good 
chance of winning the class B 
division. The men placing in this 
meet are eligible for the South- 
ern California finals to be held 
two weeks hence at Wilson high 
school in Long Beach.

ful in the history of the com

selves to the patrons. The par- 
ents and friends in turn showed 
interest in all that was. done and 
attended in large numbers. The 
exhibition of school work was 
creditable and the series of 
schorl activities and amuse- 
ments were entertaining. The 
field day at Washington school 
took on huge proportions and 
brought to light a number of 
budding athlete.';. The events

maxed by the appearance of Her-

Rev. S. L. Taylor, pastor 

Sunday school at 9:30 under the 
supervision of our efficient sup- 
erintendent. Sister Ora. B. Mc- 
Kinney. At the 11 A. M. hour, the 
pastor, Rev. Taylcjr, brought a 
wonderful message from Luke 
4:19. Before the sermon, a beau- 
tiful solo was rendered by Sis- 
ter F. Jordan. Master Wm. Carr 
also sang. The choir, under the 
direction of Sister Taylor, rend- 
ered a beautiful anthem. Sun- 
day, May 9th, a Mothers' Day 
program will be sponsored by the 
BYPU. In the afternoon, the pas- 
tor will baptize three candidates. 
The Inspiration meeting was 
largely attended. Our hearts 
were made to rejoice to have Dr. 
Rozier and his members from 
Pleasant Hill Baptist church with 
us. Music for both days was fur- 
nished by the one and only, Miss 
N. P. Washington, pianist of Cal- 
vary Baptist church of Los An- 

Mrs. Rosa L. Carr and Miss 
Louise Washington of 1006 Cuse 
St., motored to Bakersfield Sun- 
day, guest of Mr. and Mrs. Willie 
Lancaster. They report a lovely 
trip and wild flowers are beau- 
tiful. Mrs. Henrietta England of 
L. A., spent the week end with 
her sister-in-law and brother, Mr. 
and Mrs. A. M. Jordan of 1414 
E. O street. Mrs. Carr is on the 
sick list. We wish her a speedy 
recovery. The Spiritual musical, 
sponsored by the Holiness church 
of Long Beach was largely at- 
tended and everyone present en- 
joyed it. Elder George Thomas 
■ directed the play. New Hope is 
1 always glad to open the doors 
I to any one with a program as

mmister. Mr. L. Vaughn was at 
his best at the piano.

Good meals to be

Milton's lunch 

Milton lunch write head. 

To tell home loving folks that 
they should desert their own 
tables is a pretty broad assertion 
but that is just what Mr. Milton, 
live, genial Japanese proprietor 
of Milton's lunch room is telling 
Eagle readers in his announce- 
ment this issue. His reasons for 
thesp statements are that his 
many customers have expressed 
themselves as being as well pleas- 
ed as at home. Added to this is 
the convenience of just dropping 
around the comer from the Cen- 
tral avenue shopping and busi- 
ness district getting a quick 
breakfast, lunch or dinner, then 
back to offices labor or buying 
tours. Courteous service low 
food prices, general orders and 
the cleanest lunch room on the 
eastside is the Milton's boast

STAGE F<Mt 5 DAYS &!Cr. 

Not since the days of the late beloved "Little blaek-Wrd," Flor- 
ence Mills, star of the first "Shuffle Along," has Los Angeles the- 
atre goers been given such aa, entertainment feast as awaits them. 

With the entire nation "rocking in rhythm" to a style of music

ration is intri- 
guing and in- 
teresting. It has 
a real fascina- 
tion for every 
home lover, 
whether the fa- 
mily is large or 
Sporgeen c joues small. 

The first appeal is naturally 
to the eye. This being a fact, we 
tan see that color is the outstand- 
ing factor. The exterior of a cor- 
rectly, planned home should be 
colored and tinted to fit the sur- 
roundings and the neighborhood. 
Tile or shingle roofs lend them- 
selves to contrasts and blendings. 
Frame or stucco ofTers range of 
color that includes almost the 
entire rainbow. 

But the inside of the home is 
where we spend most of our 
time and it is here we must plan 
^K>st carefullj^ 

Health is quickly affected by ' 
colors; they cjin subdue or en- j 
liven* lend warmth and life. Mov- i 
able items should be carefuUy 1 
Aosen to fit Jrt the one general j 
color scheme. Included are fur- j 
Suture, drapfes and curtains, pic- | 
^es. frsimes etc. Ceilings and 
walls fireplace and floors as well 
as built-in fixtures have to be 
considered in the planning. 
, Harmony in the home lends it- ' 
self to happiness, and after all, | 
that is what makes the true home, i 
To achieve this, line, form and 
balance, including the lesser sub- 
divisions of grouping, placement, 
contrast and textures, together [ 
with color, must be correctly used. 
Everything must be taken into 
consideration. Lighting effects 
from doors and windows, and ar- 
tificial lights affect the whole 
scheme of home decoration. 
Lights and shadows change the 
appearance of everything; there- 
fore, everything must be plan- 
ned accordingly. 

Everyone appreciates the cor- 
rectly decorated home, but only 
a few have made sufficient study 
of all the factors, mcludinb' col- 
our, line, form, texture ana har- 
mony, to plan ahead all of the 
details of a balanbed home. 
(This is one of a series of articles 
on home decoration by courtesv 

*Ho^m^e^eco- *^^* ^ literally and figuratively sweeping the country. Manager 

Wolff of the Lincoln Theatre has 
succeeded in bringing to his /the- 
atre for a 5-day engagtment, 
starting • Saturday, May 8th,- one 
of the outstanding colored attrac- 
tions of the year, "Shuffle Along," 
with a company of fifty sepia 
stars, each and everyone a spe- 
cialist in swing. 

Swing is definitely not new, 
it is merely the old jazz music 
dressed up in a new word, swing. 
It has been played for many 
years, and as a matter of rec- 
ord, was first introduced nation- 
aUy in New Orleans by a col- 
ored orchestra under the direc- 
tion of King Oliver, and the first 
person ever to use the word 
"swing" was the colored trump- 
et playing maestro, Louis Arm- 

From Rampart Street in New 
Orleans, Central Avenue in Los 
Angeles and from Lenox Avenue 
in Harlem, New York, the pro- 
ducers of Shuffle Along have 
brought such performers as Mil- 
ler and Mantan, the original stars 
of Shuffle Along; Jessie Cryor, 
torrid singer of blues, Evelyn | 
Keyes, the female Bill Robinson; 
Lillian Cowan, singer of hot rhy- i 
thm ballads: Olivette Miller, : 
University of Pennsylvania grad- j 
uate, who is really and truly a 
virtuoso of the harp; the Three 
Brown Spots, and a chorus of 
twenty-four bronze maidens. 

As an added attraction, Shuffle 
Along features Jean Calloway, 
that dynamic personality and 
queen of swing and the orchestra 
of Nat Coles. Featured on the 
'air and records, this orchestra ;.^ 
known for its blazing, torrid st\ le 
of rhythm and has won the 
plaudits of theatre-goers where- 
ever the show has played.

that marked Mussolini's conquest of Ethiopia, Suetsugu made his 
challenge in a statement published first in Paris newspapers Monday. 

"The. yoke of the white races over the yellow miist disappear", 
the mercantile interests of whites must vanish in the sun of Japan's 

"When the whites are banished from Asia, I am convinced the. 

yellow races will enjoy that happiness which heaven reserves for it, 

i and the end of hegemony of the whites will really inaugurate the 

j era of justice and humanity of which Europeans and Americans are 

constantly speaking.

arms, the present in Asia will have immense repercussions 
in world history. / 

"Thus fate wills it — the essential is to fulfill our mission without 
stopping to think of secondary considerations. . . 

"The economic strength of Japan exceeds anything the whites 
can imagine." 

At first viewing the admiral's remarks with genuine alarm, a 

'^ saner analysis of Suetsugu's statements reduce them to a 
parody of other imperialists and fascists who first endow their con- 
quests with the blessings of heaven before they proceed to bark a 
volley of startling challenges. 

It is particularly significant that Japan has made no appeal, 
evinced no interest in the status of Black people of the world who 
form such staggering numbers in the world's population. 

Authorities on African, Asiatic and Indian affairs believe that 
the trend in those countries is far more tolerant of a democratic or 
communistic policy than it is of the fascism expressed by the Japa- 
nese rulers. 

Last year, at this time, Great Britain was especially squeamish 
over Ii1(dia's next move. There was no fear, of course, that India 
would aiy herself with another imperialistic government but the

prosecutor's staff 

NEW YORK Jan Bj — Mrs. 
Eunice Hunton Carter.! who ser- 
ved for several months on the 
staff of Thomas E. De^l-'ey while 
he was Special Prosecutor, was 
named Monday to continue on 
the staff as Mr. Dewey took of- 
fice as District Attorney of New 
York County. 

The contest ran for more than 
three months with DoUie Thom- 
pson, finally being adjudged win- 
ner over all other contestants. 
Lillian V. Johnson, popular sten- 
ographer, was winner of jecona 
prize, while Sweets Byer. polled 
sufficient ballots to pull up to 
win third place prize. 

^great scare to Great Britain was due to the sweeping changes going 
on within the country for independence and a self-rule oni-a demo- 
cratic basis. 

Soviet agents have been quietly but thoro^ working in Africa 
with the intelligent leaders of the black people for more than a year 
and a half. It is safe to say that the motive of the blacks in adapting 
a soviet policy would most certainly not be to throw off British 
rule or French rule for the mere sake of taking on another master 
pierely to change the color of the skin of their exploiters, but rather 
is the great movement being started towards the ideal of all self- 
conscious people — independence in the control and development of 
their natural resources and a more direct hand in their own go^-em- 
ment for the benefit of all their people. 

Japan has made no pretty offers to the blacks or the browns. 
In Africa and in parts of India where their mercantile inter- 
ests are established, Japanese methods are little improved, if not 
worse than the methods of white mercantile interests. 

Serious labor conditions, due the cheap scale on which Nippon- 
ese industrialists have forced the manufacture of their products, were 
caused in Africa where native labor is starved out of employment 
in its own country by the invasion of Japsftiese workers. 

As in America, in Ethiopia, ^gypt, and other countries of the 
Sudan, one can buy Japanese goods, imported from Japan more- 
cheaply than home-made products. 

What does Japan have to offer Asia. Asia, as in the case of 
China, has everything to offer Japan or Germany or Italy or Great 
Britain or any other country with the fascist complex of slicing off 
t^e world map what it wants to take with its sword. 

At t^ moment, no mention is made of what Japan expects to 
do in Africa but is it not far-fetched to predict that soon she will 
assert the blessings of heaven upon the Rising Sun in the Dark Con-

Goiefy and Glamour Mark Smart 
Gathering in Elks' Blue Room 

Pi Chapter of Delta Sigma Eheto sorority climax- 
2d the holiday affairs of the waning year with a Yule- 
tide Prom in the Elks' Blue Room on Thursday even- 
ing, December 30. Soft lighting effects were en- 
nanced by lighted sorority symbols placed at strate- 
gic points to form a background for the glitter and 
gaiety that characterized t he dance 

From the holly-trimmed plat-"' 
form from which emanated the 
latest popular arrangements by 
the versatile Woodman Brothers 
Orchestra to the ante-room where 
sparkling punch was plentiful, 
a galaxy of beautifully gowned 
ladies beamed on gracious es- 
corts and admirers. White and 
light colors were definitely in the 
lead, however, black were worn 
by many a smart damsel. 

Miss Anna Rosa Broyles, pres- 
ident of Pi Chapter was queenly 
in psfle blue satin with a contrast- 
ing touch of deeper blue acent- 
ed by a huge corsage of white 
gardenias: especially becoming 
was her Fifth Avenue variation 
of the stroller coiffure with en- 
ough sleekness to suit the semi- 
formal occasion. Mrs. Lillian Ty- 
ler, vice-president and chairman 
of the dance wore black crush 
satin crepe set off with a touch 
of sheer at the shoulders that 
fell softly in little folds just 
above her elbows; Mrs. Mildred 
Hampton, chapter secretary was 
demure in turquoise blue satin

Paul Williamses 
Hosts at New 
Year's Reception 

Mr. and Mrs. Paul R. Williams 
were hosts at a reception in their 
home in West 35th Street New- 
Year's Day at which Kenneth 
Washington and Woodrow Wil- 
son Strode, UCLA football stars, 
were honored guests. The recep- 
tion was arranged by Mr. Wil-

heroes meet Walter Gordon, as- 
sistant coach at the University of 

Winter Bridal 
Gown is 

For the lovely young ladies 
who are planning to take the trip 
to the altar this winter, the brid- 
al gown designed in Hollywood is 
the ideal. Frosty white tulle 
traced in a spaced, delicate pat- 
tern of minute silver sequins is 
used to make the romantically- 
styled frock with long sleeves, 
gracefully shirred 'mousquetaLre' 
fashion, close-fitting bodice, and 
' a skirt that billows voluminous- 
ly over a shining sheath of silver 
metal cloth. 
Open to Waist 

About the edge of the skirt, 
and up the center front, which 
is left open to the waist to dis- 
play the silver underskirt, is a 
flowing tracery of "true-lpvers's" 
knots, appliqued in strips of the 
silver cloth. A final "knot" of the 
silver ends on the bodice just 
above the waistline. 

The misty beauty of the dress 
is further accented by the choice 
of a white tulle veil, so cut and 
arranged that it graduates from 
moderate width about the should- 
ers to great fullness in the train. 
Orchid At Forehead 

The veil is fastened to the hair 
by an exotic but youthful flower 
arrangement — one ]arg<» white or- 
chid surrounded by sprays of li- 
lies of the valley, and is placed 
directly above the forehead. 

Orchids and lilies of the val-

Bray Sends Simms to 
Floor Three Times to 
Get Nod in Rematch I 

'Big Boy' Bray left no, 
doubt in the referee's | 
mind Tuesday night at 
the Olympic auditorium 
,n Fis rematch with Eddie 
Simms. The 5500 fans, 

watched the slugfest had no 
doubts in their minds either. The 
reason in each case was the mas- 

i terful, decisive, and impressive 
manner in which the heavy- 

j weight pride of the Eastside 

I plugged lys way home. 

A perfect left hook to the chin 

1 in the second round dropped 
Simms to the canvas for one 
count. Bray was standing in the 
neutral as the gong sounded end- 
ing the round. Simms, seemingly 
angered from the knockdown, 
jumped off the floor and charged 
in at Bray. Bray shot a neat right 
to the chin and again floored Mr. 
Simms for his impertinent ac- 
tions after the round had offici- 
ally ended. 

Simms chose to slug with Bray 
in the third canto and Bray 
quickly convinced him he 'was the 
best slugger in the ring. Bray, 
however, was compelled to ab- 
sorb some vicous body blows.

A Picnic Parade Was Beginning of 

Rose Tournament, Project Reveals 

The famous and spectacular Tournament of Roses parade, lost Saturday, 
which was seen by on estimated million-and-a-half persons, had its origin in on 
impromptu parade that was the aftermath of a day of picnicking in the Arroyo 
iSeco near Pasadena forty-eight years ago. 

On sunny, worm winter's day in 1889, members of the Valley Hunt Club of 

Trinity Baptist, Independent 
Win Church Basketball Tilts 

On last Friday nght, at the 2Y8 gymnasium, the YMCA Church 
Basketball league started, with a crowded house and enthusiasm 
running high. Independent church crushed fighting First AME

tist will meet Independent; Trin- 
ity will play First .'\ME. while 
Phillip's Temple will play the 
Seventh Day Adventist. These 
games will start at 7;30 p. m. 

Pasadena rode out for a canter <5> 
north of town, taking along a 
picnic haiTiper. After a day of 
merrymaking the return journ- 
ey began. There was much 
laughter and bantering' as the 
Uttle cavalcade rode into the 
dusty trail which later became 
Colorado Boul jvarci. now the 

beautiful, and its increasing fame 
brought larger crowds. 

Meanwhile the Tournament 
Associaton, which had been form- 
ally organized in 1904, bought 
the 100-acre plot back of the 
Throop school which later was to 

become the California Institute 

ma'in "cast and ' west thorough- ' of Technology. Pasadena now was 

fare of Pasadena. 

At this point' the leader of he 
party asked all the equestrians 
and the club tallyho to get in 
single file for a prancing parade 
back into town. All coupled. 
One of the girls began a song 
which was taken up by the pic- 
nickers as they rode through the 

beginning to see its name on the 
front pages in New York, Chic- 
ago and other great cities. The 
first queen. Miss Elsie Armitage, ' 
was chosen in 1906. Her photo | 
was printed in almost every 
newspaper in the countr}-. | 


Various athletic contests were 
staged in the Tournament Park '

ambled off the floor Bray con-

reeling into the ropes. Simms 
was too ringwise to box the re-

content in clinehinc, and fast 

Simms fcrught witii new lift in 
the next three rounds, and tried 
vainly to slip over a haymaker. 
The Big Boy was right en the 
job alert, cool, and fighting with 
superb confidence. Simms big- 
gest moment came in the ninth 
when he -ught Bray flush on 
the chine with a terrific right. 
Bray, who certainly does not 
have a glass jaw, accepted 
Sirnms' best blow without any 
indications of hurt or weakness. 

Bray, weighing 209 pounds, his 
heaviest fighting weight, has 
convincingly demonstrated that 
when and if Schmeling comes 

p'icnic parade, millions of dollars 

I have been expended, Pasadena 
has become an envied city of the 
world, and much wealth and pop- ] 

! ulation has come to Southern ! 

' California. 

When winter came again the 
picnic outing of the former year 
was remembered and its repeti- 
ton wa.s urged. The next step 
was natural evolution. Instead 
of an impromptu parade,, why not 
decorate horses and buggies 
with the flowers that so strik- 
ingly characterized the differ- 
ence between winter in Southern 
California and Eastern states. 
Uppermost was the idea of hav- 
ing a flower show with home 
flowers and vine greeneries, and 
at the time when the rest of the 
country was suffering with snow 
and blizzards. In the group was 
a world traveler. He had seen 
the carnivals at Nice and 'Ven- 
ice. These, in a way, suggested I ^^^^ to be erected, the design of 
the new pattern. , the stadium or bowl at Yale Un- 

The first planned show 'was a [ iversity was agreed on as a pat- 
success. Inasmuch as the parades I f^rn. The site chosen was that 
wound up in a 5 acre plot, it was | ancient place in the Arroyo Seco 

feated Stanford 49 to 0. In 1904, 
and continuing for several years 
due to the popularity of Lew 
Wallace's "Ben Hur.'' chariot 
races were staged. The modern 
series of college football games 
was inaugurated in 1916 and has 
and 1919 when army and navy 
service teams played. 

By now the annual flower par- 
ade had grown to be tHc most 
costly and beautiful ever to be 
staged anywhere n the world. 
Crowds again doubled and treb- 
led. During the rapid run of 
years. Hollywood, too had added 
its glamorous self to the picture. 
One of the newspapers of an 
tarly day hazarded that the 
Tournament brought in more

Young Americans have much 
to think about, if we take time 
to think. War talk, fundamen- 
tal' rights talk, discrimination 
talk, job talk, change in mon- 
ey- system talk, and, if you 
please, the right to live talk, 
all presents such a ramified 
picture that it causes us to 
wonder that more of us aren't 

As we said, t's all v e e r y 
puzzling, IF we take the time 
to think about it. Of course, 
if wc don't, and proceed to go 
about living in a daze, jusi 
taking things for granted, well 
— that's a way, too. 

Take war ta^lk, for instance. 
The saner young man of today 
doesn't want a,ny part of war, 
unless it is brought home. 
Groups -of these young men 
have been making themselves 
heard as they let the world 
know that war talk doesn't 
frighten them to the extent 
that they are going to lose 
their sense of reasoning when 
the big ballyhoo drums start 
booming. They say there will 
have to be a mighty good rea-

Beware^ Coughs 


That Hang On 

No matter how many medicines 
you have tried for your cough, 
chest cold, or bronchial irrita- 
tion, you can get rcUef now with 
Creomulsion. Serious trouble 
may be brewing and ywi cannot 
afford to take a chance with any 
rmeedy less potant than Creomul- 
sion, which goes right to the seat 
of the trouble and aids nature to 
joothe and heal the inflamed mu- 
cous membranes and to loosen 
and expel the germ-laden 

Even if other remedies have 
failed don't be discouraged, try 
Creomulsion. Your druggiat ia 
authorized to refund your money 
if you are not thoroughly satis- 
fied with the benefits obtained 
from the very first bottle. Creo- 
mulsion is one word — not two, 
and it has no hyphen in it Ask 
for it plainly, see that the name 
on the bottle is Creomulsion, and 
you'll get the genuine product 
■nd the relief you waat (Adv).

Jim Crowism 
Reaps Huge 
Death Toll 

BUFFALO, N. Y., Jan. 6 (CN 
A)_iThe tuberculosis rate for 
Negroes in Buffalo, N. Y.- is 10 
times higher than xor whites, 
venereal diseases are prevalent 
among the race at a 10 to 1 rate 
as compared to the rdsf of the 
population, heart disease takes 
twice as many deaths per thou- 
sand among Negroes than the rest 
of the population, twice as many 
colored mothers die in childbirth, 
in 1933, out of every thousand 
Negro babies bom, 116 died. 

The above i* a partial list of 
the facts relating to the status 
of the Negroes of the Niagara 
Frontier as brought out in the 
rpcent open hearings conducted 
in Buffalo by the New York State 
Temporary Commission on the 
Conditions of Urban Negroes. 

Dr. Myron McGuire, local den- 
tist, gave a detailed report ex- 
posing housing conditions among 
Ask Slum Clearance 

"Negroes are forced to pay 
excessively high rents and are 
crovrded against their w^ill into 
unsanitary hovels. In many plac- 
es signs 'To Rent— for White 
Only" are hung out. Real estate 
operators take advantage of both 
Negro and white renters by in- 
ducing Negroes to occupy homes 
next to whites, who move be- 
cause they fear property loss 
from Negro neighbors. Then the 
real estate operators charge ex- 
orbitant rentals to other Negro 
families who move In." 

While parking rules vary iii 
different cities, there are certain 
circumstances under which park- 
ing is prohibited by state law. 
The Automobile Club of South- 
em California summarizes them

crosswalk; between a safety 
zone an adjacent curb or

Women^s Hats Very Small 
Or Very Large; Veils to Go 

Women's hats, which have gone to extremes in size, shape and 
contour, will revert to more sensible lines in the Spring, according 
to fashion forecast by Robert KaUoch, head designer at Columbia 

dies and Spain will also provide 
inspiration for both millinery and 
clothing, he adds. 

"Clean, classic lines will pre- 
vail in the Spring outfits," Kal- 
loch continued. "Three and four 
color combinations will not be 
unusual. For example, I am de- 
signing for Miss Blondell a din- 
ner dress in four colors, with 
black floating chiffon skirt, flesh 
chiffon top with sapphire and 
jade chiffon sashes, and coral

Birth Data Bars 
Harlem's Aged 
From Pensions 

NEW YORK, Jan. 6. (CNA)— 
Hundreds of aged Harlemites au-e 
denied old-age pensions because 
they were bom in Southern stat- 
es, where birth certificates were 
not issued until 1900 and who 
are therefore unable to produce 
proof of their age. 

The story is cited for an aged 
North Carolina born woman, the 
daughter of a slave, who is be- 
ing kept off the pension rolls. 

Fanny Ingram of 304 W. 128th 
street, says she can prove that 
she is 67 years old, citing the 
name of a white person, Henry 
Lisle, who was nursed by her 
own mother not long after the 
Civil War and grew up along 
side of her. She also said that 
the man who owned her mother 
was Hampton Hamiriond, whose 
Qlantation was in Anderson 
<3ounty. North Carolina. 
■ The aged woman is today liv- 
ing on relief with her 18-year- 
old grandson.

AUSTIN, Tex., Jan. 6 (CNA)— 
Santa Claus found a decline in 
employment as well as in pay- 
rolls when he "visited" Texas 
this year. However, the so-called 
"return to prosperity" caused the 
Christmas scene to be less dreary 
than that of last year. 

Eighteen thousand Texas es- 
tablishments employing Negro 
.and white labor furnished the^ 
"feSsis" for Wiis' jtfport,'^-wJHCh was* 
made by the University, of Texas 
bureau of research. Only six 
cities, Amarillo, Denison, ElPaso 
Houston, * Laredo and Wichita 
Falls showed increases above the 
average in employment and pay- 
rolls despite the fact that living 
costs are rising steadily. These 
gains were shown in such indus- 
tries as laundries, foundries, cot- 
ton oil mills, dying and cleaning,

annexation of Ethiopia. 

To date, the other Oslo powers

Program for 

Los Angeles 

A public improvement pro- 
gram, totaling $11,060,360 in cost

in Works Progress Administra- 
tion funds and 18 PWA projects 
costing $1,480,610 were included

provement completed in the past 
year, Mayor Shaw announced. 
An average of more than 10,000 
persons were employed in the 
program every workng day dur- 
mg this period. 
No Special Assessments 

Classification of the public 
work completed during 1937 re- 
veals that 33 miles of streets were 
paved; 37 miles were oiled; 14 
miles of storm drains were in- 
stalled; 49 miles of sidewalks and 
,40 miles of concrete gutters were 
constructed; 33 miles of sani- 
tary sewers were completed; ten 
pedestrian subways, costing $95,- 
920, were opened for use by the

If You Foil To Redd It In The Eogle— You>Aoy NeVer Knovv It Happened. 

Thursdoy, Jonuory 6, ' |, 


OPENING brightly with impressive production lists for 1938, Hol- 
lywood still remains unpredictable on the sepia side of the 
silver sheet. 

Anything can happen here and Change is the essence of modes 
and manners, love and Uving— in the glamorous center of the wprld's 
topf amusement industry. ;' 

tA/E DOUBT If Negroes will surpass the employment seale set 
▼^ this year in feature length films by major studios. 

It is very likely that more and higher financed independents 
will siving up to produce all-Negro cast pictures. 

Highly probable is it that at least two class-A films will be 
considered by one of the oldest studios here. A Negro may do 
the script 
^'T: Rltther Ukely, too, that the Globe Production, "Spirit of 
Youth" will turn out well enough to give a scare to the biggies, 
inspire further investigation into tlie bruited Negro box office 

AND WAY LATE, the now domuuit millions spent by dark 
patrons may be herded into an argument for an intensive cam- 
paign of self respect for undeiprivileged people — meaning, chief- 
ly: YOU! 

Otherwise .'. . tills year, young as it is, will end up about the 
same as last year just a cavalcade ot rolling circles — beginning at 
iio particular point, ending, without rhsrme or reason, not too far 
from the starting post. 



3HEARTENING is the news of the revival of '-Birth of A 
tion". It was banned when protests claimed it stirred 
racial hatreds. ; 

In this militant, "civilized" year of 1938, is there enough 
power in 20 million Negroes to force it off the screen again? 

(We see by the i)apers that JEWS eire spending 500 million 


pounds or TWO BILLION, five hundred million DOLLARS in a 
proi>aganda campaign against countries that have been unkind to 

Do you wonder, then, why I'm so blue this morning . . . because 
I know that NEGROES sp^d MILLIONS ... not AGAINST but in 
SUPPORT of movies thatl^hold them up to the world as vicious, 
feeble-minded, thievmg savages of modern civilization.

"I was afraid because I did not 
know how the story was going to 
be handled and I know how ter- 
rible would have been the reac- 
tion of my people if any phase 
of Dr. Carver's life had been 
distorted. But, I am happy to 
say, now, that Mr. Smith and 
Fred Zimmerman, director, not 
only did a great deal of research 
on the scientist's life but took 
every care during the making of 
the picture to keep it authentic 
and present a serious, education- 
al film of a great Negro that I 
think will prove an asset to our 
race as well as to the studio." 


Himself a quiet, imassuming 
man, not unlike the character of 
Dr. Carver, Rosemond declared 
with appropriate humility that 
he felt sigiiaUy honored to por- 
tray the life of the distinguished 
man whose various discoveries 
about the lowly peanut have giv- 
en to the world such useful pro- 
ducts as: soap, mixed pickles, 
) sherbert, butter, salad oils, soft 
drinks, face powder, dyes, cheese, 
wood stains, instant coflfee break- 
fast food, flour, axle grease, tan 
remover, lard, insulating boards, 
beauty preparations and print- 
ers' ink. 

The short begins with Carver 
at the age of 6 months when he 
was stolen by plantation raiders 
and sold into slavery for a race 
horse. The picture shews him, at 
an early age, stealing off into the 
woods studying imder the trees, 
painting flowers and observing 
animal life on the southern farm. 

Rosemond enters the picture as 
Carver at the age of 30 and car- 
ries on through the remaining 
years of the scientist's life. 

"We have a scene showing Dr. 

Carver picking up a peanut in 
his laboratory, lifting his eyes 
toward heaven, saying: "L o r d, 
what is a peanut; why did you 
make it?" Rosemond said. 

The triumphant scene, how- 
ever, is the one showing Carver 
inventing a cure for crippled 
children, the actor declared. 

Rosemond has had an inter- 
esting career in films and on the 
stage as a baritone singer. He 
spent over 10-years abroad and 
did a command performance for 
King George V and Queen 
Mary with the Royal Southern 
Singers Quartet.

Shadow Cities 
Dot H Vood 
Film Horizon 

Cities that grew over night, 
cities not shown on any map and 
not mentioned on any census re- 
port, have mushroomed into ex- 
istence to meet Hollywood's cur- 
rent production demands. 

They range from old San 
Francisco, as it stood in 1850, to 
a rattle-de-trap collectioH of 
wide-porched mansions and drift 
wood huts; from New York as it 
is today to a simdrenched Riviera 
village. Populated by thousands 
today, they will be torn down 
tomorrow and nothing will be 
left of them except their sha- 
dows on a film. 

Largest of these doomed com- 
munities is the workday address 
of some 2000 persons u s e d in 
filming scenes for Frank Lloyd's 
Paramoimt production, "Wells 
Fargo". Duplicating Portsmouth 
Square as it stood in San Fran- 
cisco 80 years ago, it covers seven 

Capitol, Davenport, Springfield, 
St. Paul and Minneapolis. 

"One of the interesting things'' 
said Muse "is the enthusiastic re- 
ception which the "Big Apple" 
gets in these cities. ITie audi- 
ences have been enthusiastic and 
friendly. They seem to be eager 
for the sort of entertainment 
which colored performers of 
quality can dispense."
