INKVER TIRE of seeing the 
aights of New York City. 
La«t week I mentioned some 
few things I saw and heard in 
Harlem. This week I'd like to 
take you on a little jaunt 
through the Latin quarter, ad- 
jacent to Harlem. I had heard 
so much about going "Under 
the Bridge" for bargains, hence 
when my opportunity came 
last week and I had a chance 
to choose between attending a 
brUliant social affair or going 
to the Latin quarter on a shop- 
ping expedition, I chose the 

It was about ten A. M. when 
we started on the journey. The 
"Under the Bridge" section 
starts Just a short distance be- 
fore 116th Street, nms into 
Park Avenue. Persons who 
have never lived in New York 
or only visited it for a short 
time, think of the Park Ave. 
district as the ultra aristocrat- 
is neighborhood. Henc« th?. 
mqit iou uf ^wk AvaviA-aoa^- 
section with this peculiar 
market bargaining section 
Strikes one, I imagine, as it 
did me, in the manner of a 
very strange arrangement. 
Nevertheless, this heterogen- 
eous conglomeration of human 
beings from all parts of Eu- 
rope, Panama, Puerto Rico, 
South America, and the West 
and East Indies make up the 
American population of "Un- 
der the Bridge." And in this 
Quarter of the World's great- 
est metropolis, life, apparent- 
ly, begins and ends on the side- 
'ivalk. The street merchants 
seem to sense one's needs, and 
they flaunt their goods in your 
face, quoting prices as they do 

t3. Evidently, this area is not 
nly the business sectidn for 
merchandise, but also the res- 
idential section for the people. 
Standing back of the over- 
stocked shops are dingy five 
and six story houses. An oc- 
casional glance reveals the 
emaciated form of an old man 
er woman, too time worn to 
ktnger ply their trade, partly 
lianging from the windows as 
.they desperately seek escape 
|rom the intense heat within , 
their small, ramshackled quar- ; 

There were two things in 
I>articular that attracted my at- 
tehtion "Under the Bridge". 
First, the rioious colors — there 
-ivas no mourning at the coun- 
ters. The Jew competed with 
the Scandinavian; and the 
Spaniard, because his lang- 
uage or some Spanish brogue 
Is often spoken in the district, 
assumes a priority over both 
fa^cfllering his bright colors to 
{he human stream that flows 
through the section daily. And 
the second attraction that 
claimed my close attention was 
the race question. In the Uni- ' 
ted States, national and racial 
connections seemingly are pred- 
icated on color. This is not the 
case "Under the Bridge." Here 
one sees every color 'among 
hiunans mixing and mingling. 
I did not ask abont intermar- 
riage among those various 
groups, for there in the slimy, 
stinking gutter^ and narrow 
alleys, receptacles for rotten 
fruits and vegetables, played 
jtheir offspring. 

I Tlje one thing that is defin- 
itely missing in this section is 
American English. Black, white, 
bronze and yellow, even the 
tiny tots, spoke foreign ton- 
gues when addressing one an- 
other that I did not under- 

As I watched this melting 
pot "Under the Bridge", I 
wcmdered whether Greater 
Nrw York was just mardfing 
on taking little thought of 
"vhai ii happening in such pic- 
turesque settlem .ts. ItsSis in- 
terestiag to note that a '"•• 
body of exiled white Russians 
have also taken us residence 
"Under the Bridge.''^

Bigamy Suspect 
Jailed 6n Wife 
No. 1's Complaint 

Milan Drew, 25-year old chauf- 
feur of 5517 Hopper avenue, 
whose wife read of his" marriage 
to another woman in the vital 
statistics columns of the EAGLE, 
was nailed this week on suspi- 
cion of bigamy, following a com- 
plaint made last week by Mrs. 
Vemell Drew. 

Faced by Mrs. Drew No. 1 and 
"Mrs. Drew No. 2," who is Rob- 
bie Lee Yates, both prepared to 
testify that "Lothario" had said 
"I do" to each of them. Drew ad- 
mitted the marriages, but claim- 
ed he thought his wife had di- 
vorced him. 

Police dug up a previous ar- 
rest of the suspected bigamist, 
for non-support of his chUd in 
1937. He S|^rved a year, follow- 
ing conviction, in the County Jail. 
Ordered to support the child 
when he and the legal Mrs. Drew 
separated in 1936^ he has avoided 
his obligations, his wife said, and 
she and the chi(ld have been forc- 
ed on relief.

Sleeping Powder 
All Right, But 
TofO Miifcfi Isn'r 

An aged womah, suffering from 
rheumatism, narrowly escaped 
death this week from an over- 
dose of sleeping powder. Mrs. 
Emma Reed, 1151 E. 43rd street, 
is slowly recovering in the Gene- 
ral hospital today after a top- 
lavish dose of morphifae which 
completely knocked her out. 

Her son, Ernest Taylor, told 
ambulance doctors who rendered 
first aid, that he had taken his 
mother to the office of a Japan- 
ese: doctor on W. 45th street and 
w^en he returned, found her sit- 
ting on the floor, supported from 
behind by the doctor. 

Carrying her to the car, the 
yoiing man said he took her home 
and when she remained uncon- 
scious, called the ambulance.

his pretty wife, Nora Bowens, in 
Department 17 of the Superior 
Court before Carl A. Stutsman,

charged her husband with ex- 
tretoie cruelty. [ 

Bowens is alleged to have kid- 
nai^ped the woman in his car af- 
ter the divorce suit was filed and

KANSAS CITY (Kas.) Aug. 17 
—Miss Ruth Payne, 22, niece of 
Mrs. Edna Whitley- of Los Angel- 
es, was' deadj here today, a sui- 
cide. ■ In thtf presence of her 
sweetheart and friends, the young 
woman drank a double dose of 
a deadly poison. ' ' ,' 

A six-count indictment was re-<^ 
turned against the youth by the 
District Attorney's office Tues- 
day. Bail was set at $1500. 

Chatman was arrested after a 
six-year old child, in whose pres- 
ence he had raped his small niece, 
described the scene to her moth- 
er. Police said he confessed to 
the act and signed a statement. 

Eight-year old Charlene White, 
second grade pupil, with whose 
parents Chatman made his home 
aft 748 E. 31st street, freely de- 
cribed to juvenile authorities the 
frequent abuse she had submit- 
ted to in the {wd few months. 
She saM the atti(eks took place 
in the rear of Chatman's automo- 
bile, in the garage of their home. 
The last one, she said, occurr- 
ed on Avgust 3. 

After examination by medical 
authorities, the youngster was 
placed in juvenile hall. She also 
told police that her mother, Mrs. 
Charles White, had caught the 
boy in an attempted assault on 
her on a previous occasion, but 
had only^given him a rebuke. Po- 
lice said Mrs. White obviously 
had not reported Chatman be- 
cause he was her brother and 
their mother had died only a 
short time before. 

Both little girls stated that 
Chatman, whom they called 
"Uncle Buddy," had imposed 
himself on other youngsters, 
who are being sought by juv- 
enile authorities. 

Chatman graduated with a 
brilliant athletic^ record from 
Jefferson High school. At Comp- 
ton, he played on the football, 
team and was a champion discus: 

Catholic School 
for Girls to Be 
Built in Harlem. 

NEW YORK, Aug. 17— For the 
first time in the history of the 
Archiocese of New York, a Cath- 
olic High school for Negro girls

present scheme is carried thru. 
Plans are now being perfected 
to have the school. All Saints 
academy, located in Harlem, 
will be ready for the next term. 

All the students of the 75-year 
old High school for Catliolic 
girls, one of the oldest academies 
in the city, have been transferred 
to other Catholic schools in New 
York as the first step in the pro- 
ject, h 

AUiougn Negroes have studied 
at other Catholic s^chools in the 
xity, this would be the first time 
a school has been strictly limit- 
ed to Negro entoUment. Non- 
Catholic as well as Catholic girls 
would be admitted. 


DETROIT, Aug. 17— "You 
aren't ashamed to acknowledge 
Jesus Christ.

The "idle" titne of loaders on -the city refuse trucks 
which is defined as — the time spent on the trucks going 
to and from the route and point of disposal — is the jtffg 
saving to be effected by the city engineers if their pro- 
posed one-man truck proposition is adopted.

ed or a place being l3urgla|tized — -ti^fe « a lot of tiine 
spent in "idleness" by firdnaen ancti;poIicemen going to 
and from the scene of actlein. A s#ing equal to many 
times that to be had by cutting off ^^e meager existence ^ 
of a loader on a garbage truck cotild be effected. Per- 1 
haps too, some of the insjpectors who duplicate each 
other in their work of inspection out <if the different de- 
partments ; the^ time lost bgr the cityjivhen they commute 
back and forth might be added to^he list of "idle" time 
for which the city pays. Then tiywe is a whole gang of 
commissioners, a whole raft oJf' investigators, a whole 
colony of white-collar job men with cit>- cars,bearing the' 
city seail using city moniey §»• ride tip and down city 
streets at the city's expeiise::4"-men earning'ten times as 
much as the existent mov^ being paid to the poor 
loader on a rubbish or jgarfeiage. wagon who must support 
a large ^milx and pay taies in order that others more in 
the pow^ will have money enough for their "idleness." 
The wast^ of taxpayers ^money thrii' "idleness" by 
high-powered^ high-salaried vaien in of ficial c^pacity.^is 
so evident in the City 'Hall thirt Mayor Bowron, fed up 
on the "idle" cpnditions there,.issued a statement this 
week decrying them. Men paid thousands of dollars 
per month, entrusted with the duty of opening, their of-: 
fices, starting the business of the city on time, are said 
to be from one-half to one hour late at their post of dut}% 
It is somei^hat strange, that the city engineers >ave notv 
checked up on this waste of dty funds. Too, what about 
all of that time the ci^ paid:&ose engineers whose sal-v 
aries run into four figures, to check on the meager earn- 
mgs of a helpless lot of pooi^ifoaders in order that Uiey

NEW YORK, Aug. 17— When 
the Memphis delegation to the 
Elks' convention hits Harlem 
August 21 it will boast that his- 
tory definitely will be made, for 
Harlem swing supremacy, hither- 
to unquestiom d, will vanish- be- 
fore the warbl ng of the blues.-. 

Long noted for "doing up 
bro-wn" whatejver it uiuiertakes, 
Beale Street^is not only sending 
the biggest delegation, as befits 
the largest' Nekro Elks' lodge in 
the South, but Fwith it will be the 
famed Booker T. Washington 
High School Drum and Bugle 
Corps. Consid^-ed the finest all- 
girl aggregation of its kind and 
composed of QO of the prettiest 
brown tnissesj along the Mis- 
sissippi, it syntbolizes the spirit 
of Beale Street | and its glarhorous 
and melodrama(tic past. These 60 
dusky tdebutaites will "send" 
New York by singing and playing 
along the line of march the Blues 
that have mad^ Memphis mqre 
famous than itsi namesake on the 
Nile ... i 

"Father of the iBloes" to Lead 

Heading the huge Memphis de- 
legation, with its blues-chanting 
choir and the celebrated Beale 
Street Marching Club, will be the 
patriarch of jitterbugs, famed W. 
C:' Handy, composer of "Memphis 
Blues", "Beale Street Blues", "St 
Louis Blues", etc., who started 
Anr^erica on its way to n^ncopated 
supremacy. Robert R . "Bob" 
Church, millionaire Negro politi-. 
cal leader of Memphis will ride 
in the limousine with Handy, as 
will Lieut. George W. Lee, Mem- 
phis insurance man and author of 
"Beale Street; Where the Blues 
Began" and "River George". 

Colorfully uniformed delega- 
tions representing Elks from 4S 
states will be in the line of march,' 
but Beale Street swears that 
neither the lilies of the field, the 
jungle birds with their gorgeous 
plumage nor Solomon in all his 
glory will compare with its 
chanting girls .and colorful uni- 
forms. Even Mr. Whalen's bftys

sub-divaion thereof, to require 
the payment of a poll tax &> a

taxes a condition to voting^in na- 
tional and local elections are in 
force in eif^t states— Vhrginia,

ni« Meivi«s atid th« Stag* 

%A# 8 LIKE the theatre, b« it motion pictures or stage plays. 
▼ ▼ la the latter category, we saw Earl Carroll's "White Car- 
go" Uu other night at thei Beaux Arta theatre and enjoyed it very 
much. •, J j 

Being of a minority Efbup, we saw in "White Cargo" some- 
thing the movies could use to 
their advantage, at the same 
time furthering the cause of 
interracial relationships in the 
human family. 

We believe the movies tind 
the stage exert ^ powerful in- 
fluence on the j>ublic consci- 

"White Cargo" hid nothing. 
It was stark realism. And be- 
cause it was, it had a 'packed 
audience singing its praises. 
"White Cargo" Has been play- 
ing at the Beaux Arts for some- 
time. It was not difficult to 
imagine why. Here was the 
stuff of , which I humans are 
made. ' , ' 

The locale of the play was 
laid in a bungalow outpost on 
the West Coast of Africa. 
When we say Africa, we might 
naturally expect the people of 
that continent to figure in the 
story. Well, they do. 

In fact, a girl, bom of an 
African mother and a French 
father, makes the play the 
EKJwerful drama that it is. 

There are nine in the cast. 
Rubber interests established 
the lonely outpost, which had 
lefws of the outside world ev- 
;ry three months, by way of a 
3oat from England. 

Dominating the action is rub- 
ier representative Harry Wit- 
lel, played by Brady Kline. 
Used to the ways of the Afri- 
;an coast and experienced in 
luman naiture, it is Witzel who 
3ace8 the story. When a new 
jartner, Allen Langford, is 
sent him by his company he 
jrophesies tljat Langford will 
io the same things and feel the 
same way that the rest of the 
A^hite men in the vicinity do, 
md feel. _ 

Langforjd, pl^td by Peter 
rookson, replaces! the story's 
Fred Ashley who, because of 
,he heat, is only too glad to 
•eturn home. When Langford 
irrives at the outpost he ad- 
;-ises Witzel he is going to re- 
nain "white" and not do the 
hings the rest of them have 
lone. Witzel. on. the other 
land, prophesies he will. 

The mixed blooded native 
;irl, Tondeleyo, played by Jer- 
'11 Lynn,, enters the picture 
or play> at this point. A 
jeautiful womna, Tondeleyo 
nakes advances to the new- 
:omer, as she has all the other 
.vhite men who have come to 
hat locality. But. because of 
iVitzel's prophecy, Langford 
■emains aloof and undisturbed. 
\s time passes, with loneliness 
md monotony taking its ef- 
'ect. Langford weakens but, 
■ather than make the prophe- 
:y come true, marries Tonde- 
leyo. This, of course, brings 
down the wrath of the other 
white men upon Langford's 
head. They advise him to do 
as they have done, buy the na- 
tive girl jewelry and silks but 
don't marry h r. For, as Wit- 
zel put iit. Langford wouldn't 
even be respected by the na- 

Tondeleyo, dis^tisfied with 
her mate and disillusioned by 
the institution of marriage, 
subsequently tries to poison 
him because she had been told 
that she was married "until 
death do us part". 

It is Witzel, the man who 
understood human nature, who 
supplied the line that stood out 
in the play. The line: "Color 
is nothing but a point of geog- 
raphy". I j

is made. The American Ne-

a much quicker and happier so-

The movies, to our notion, is 
missing its biggest bet. Not so 
much BECAUSE of the Negro

our so-called ills it represents 
a definite point of attack, as

Sketch Subject: DR. FRANK B. HUGHES ... Graduate CHiropodist, Owner end 
Mttftager of Hughes' Funeral Escort Serv|cc. 


Operating the only Negro business of its kind in the United States, Dr. F. 
B. Hughes has made Los Angeles THE metropolis, so far os funeral service for 
the Negro is concerned 

Bom in 1884, when the Negro^ 

had just begun to shake the dust 

of slavery from his feet, Hughes 

was destined to blaze the trail 

for the 20th century Negro. 
After completing grammar | 

school in Kansas City, Mo., the i 

city of his birth, Hughes realized ' 

that the North presented greater 

opportunities. He went to Chi- i 

cago where he completed higli 


Not having money to pursue a 

college education, Hughes found ^ 

it necessary to seek employment i 

before he could progress further. 

Since railroading gave him an 

opportunity to see the country 

and save money, Hughes secured j 

a job as a dining-car waiter. His I 

record of capable service and de- ' 

pendability made it possible for 

him to continue this work for 25 


Married in 1907, our subject 

was a widower four years later. 

Between "runs". Hughes was a 

"foot-doctor". It was not unlaw- 
ful then to practice without a li- 
cense. A.« laws changed, so did 

Hughes. In 1922 he received his 

degree in chiropody from the Il- 
linois School of Chiropody in 

Chicago and returned to Kansas 

City. a licensed practitioner. 

Back in the "old home town", he 

found a second mate and marri- 
ed In 1924. 
After six years of success in 

Kansas City, Dr. Hughes moved 
to Phoenix, Arizona, where he 

established an office and enjoyed 
a flourishing practice for five 
years. But fate has queer ways 
of shaping our lives. Faulty vis- 
ion made it advisable for the doc- 
tor to abandon his profession and 
seek something hard on the 

In 1933, Dr. Hughes came to 
Los Angeles with the idea of in- 
vesting his capital in some pay- 
ing business. It is not easy to 
make a decision where one's life- 
time savings are involved, so in- 
stead of immediate action Hugh- 
es worked around for a few years 
until the idea of his present busi- 
ness was clearly formulated in 
his mind. 

Once the negotiation? were be- 
gun. Dr. Hughes discovel'ed that 
securing a license as funeral dp- 
cort was no easy matter. ) 

There seemed no end of com- 
municating with Washington, fin- 
ger-printing, investigation and 
"red tap)e" in general. He met 
with opposition at every turn. 
But Dr. Hughes persevered and 
disproved' one of our oldest ad- 
ages — "virtue", says he, "is not

community leaders, interested in 
the district and the affairs of its 
people. John P. Davis, National 
SecretMy of the. National Negro 
Congress, on tour of the nation, 
in a movement to obtain for Ne- 
gro citizens larger benerits frbm 
'established Federal agencies, 
was leader of these assemblies. 
Meetings were held at the Ham- 
ilton Methodist Church, at the 
28th St YMCA and at the resi- 
dence of Assemblyman Augustus 
F. Hawkins. 

Sunday's public meeting at 
Hamilton featured Secretary 
Davis as the principal speaker. 
Making concrete the meeting's 
theme "What a Housing Project 
Would Mean for Your Com- ' 
munity", the audience approved : 
a four point program including: 
obtaining extension of the hous- 
ing survey to cover the whole of 
the Central Avenue District and 
Watts; obtaining an immediate 
and definite committment from 
the Los Angeles Authority that 
a housing project will be con- 
structed for the Central Avenue 
District; establishing guarantees 
that the local authority will fol- 
low the policy established by the 
USHA in assuring a specific per- 
centage of jobs for Negro work- 
ers in all projects constructed; 
and opposing attempts of the 
Los Angeles Housing Authority 
to promote racial segregation by 
earmaricing certain projects for 
specified races, thus drastically 
limiting the participation of min- 
ority groups in the benefits of 
the housing program. 

In his discussion of the sub- 
ject Secretary Davis showed 
how the program of benefits, es- 
tablished by New Deal legisla- 
tion to help low-income groups 
has been undermined by the so- 
called economy bloc, at Con- 
gressman and Senators. 

Citing the value of mass pres- 
sure by Negro citizens and other 
progressive groups Davis illus- 
trated the experience in San An-

Well alrightl The rhythm was 
really jimiping Sunday night 
when Benny Goodman, world 
famous band leader "Boogie 
Woogied" with the Harlem Band. 
Mr. Goodman proved himself 
regular in every way and won 
the hearts, of the big crowd that 
was there to greet him. 

"T-Bone" Walker, the very 
popular master of ceremonies and 
blues singer, has returned from 
Dallas, Texas full of the "jump- 
ing jive." He conducted the floor 
show very cleverly on Simday 
night. Among the guests artists 
were Russell Jones of Seattle, 
Wash., singing "Wishing;" Irene 
Lyons doing 'T Cried for You;" 
Evelyn Beryl, "St. Louis Blues;" 
and Dudley Dickerson singing 
"Or Man River." All the num- 
bers were beautifully rendered 
and well received by an appre- 
ciative crowd. 

We were pleased to have some 
of the chorus girls from the Bal 
Tavern drop in Sunday night.

to the problem of race discrim- 
ination that denies certain cit- 
izens in sections of this country 
the enjoyment of their rights 
and full educational opportun- 
ities is offered in this great 
pageant of prograas. 

At the Lutheran Day cele- 
bration at the World's Fair re- 
cently the Rev. Dr. Walter A. 
Maier, ProfeaMr of Biblical 
Inte rp r eta tion at Concordia 
Seminary, St . Louis, said "The 
Fair is the Century's moat 
magnificent spectacle of hu- 
man achievement. It ought to 
have a vast diorama featuring 
the terrors of the last war and 
the incomparably more shock- 
ing inferno of the next inter- 
national slaughter." 

"The exposition", he added, 
"should also present the spec- 
tacle of America under the 
sway of commiUBStic terror, 
with home life destroyed, the 
family socialized and the 
churches closed." 

It is impossible to sow seed 
rocks and hope to reap a har- 
vest of grain. American demo- 
cracy has been built on rocks 
of race hatreds, color and in- 
dustrial discrimination. The 
harvest is approaching. The 
rock that threatens the de- 
struction of the fotmdation of 
our democracy comes not so 
much from without as from 

Lula Belle Lauderdale and Emma 
Priestly were there. 

We also saw Willie Best, better 
known as 'Toung Step," drop in 
for a brief second.

The article traces this vicious 
development in the motion pic- 
ture industry back to David' 
Work Griffith's ^Birth of a Na- 
tion," produced iby Griffith in 
1915, terming this picture, reviv- 
ed, ks a "cruel Jibel on the Ne- 
gro People." 

Concluding wjth the admoni- 
tion to motion picture producers 
that they get at the truth of the 
Negro's conribution to American 
life, and learn that picturing this 
truth will bring profits, the art- 
icle ends on thi^ note: 

"The true story of the Ne|ro, 
numbering twelve million of our 
population, is a vital one. He has 
contributed mightily to our coun- 
try and its cultural life. His his- 
tory is rich in drama and laurii- 

"Hia labor, bravery, the mns- 
ia of his aonl, are the stuff of

thrated with profit to Amerl-

The greatest adventure known 
to man is thrillingly reconstruct- 
ed on the screen of the United

twice Academj^ Award winning 
Speacer Tracy turning in another 
masterful performance, co-star- 
red with Nancy Kelly and Rich- 
ard Green at the head of one of 
the greatest acting casts ever as- 

When Tracy, in the role of Hen- 
ry M. Stanley, the crack young 
reporter on the old New York 
Herald, spoke those famous 
words, "Dr. Livingstone, I pre- 
sume?" in the heart of Africa,

'•The rope that lynches Negroes 
In America is woven of many 
strands. One of the toughest of 
these is the American motion pic- 
ture, which y^af after year con- 
tinues to regard the Negro as a 
stereotype for submissiveness, ir- 
responsibility, gaiety and sex 
peifversion. Hollywood did not 
mitiate the stereotype, but over

Thurada- ugiist 17, 1939 






Th« biggest arguin«tit for th« porticipotion 
of Hi* Negro in major kogno bosoboil woal enact- 
•4 lott weekend at Wrigiey Field, the home of the 
Los Angeles Angels of the Pacific Coast league. 

The occasion wos the Southern Colifomia 
Amateur Baseball championship finals. The win- 
ner ii scheduled to m#et the northern Colifornio 
victor next weekend. 

I iTo thr Posodeno Sox goes the palm for furn- 
ishing the argument for participation of Negroes 
in major league boseboll. The Posodeno team 
showed that such participation is practical, beyond 
any shodow of o doubt. One of the finalists, and 
ultimate winner of the Southern California cham- 
pionship among the simon-pures, the Posodeno 
Sox boosted three sepia bosebollers. They ore 
-r^=^rrT^sf:^ ' ^Jackie Robinson, shortstop, 

.and all-round athlete; Not 
!Moreland, pitcher; and El- 
'^lery Prince, catcher. 

In the ploy over the wcek- 
nd, it wasn't the fact that 
[the three youths were Negro 
jOS it was that thru their su- 
perlative ploy they enabled | 
ithe Sox to win the champ- 
ionship as well OS give the 
ifans on exhibition of base- 
ball that was a credit to the 
notional postime. 

The fans went for the 
brand of boll exhibited by 
these amateurs. And if 
their were big league scouts 
on hand, os reported, well 
jACKlfe ftONNSON bet they eyed the obovo lods 
greedily. Regardless of the fact that currently the 
"notidnol" postkne is still not notional, there is 
no reason why the major league scouts, the fans, 
ond oil foir-minded sports enthusiasts shouldn't 
odd their voices to the ever-increasing cry for in- 
clusion of the Negro in the great gome of bose- 
boll which, this year is celebrating its one hun- 
dredth anniversary. Ifs a fine time to moke the 
postime "notional" in fact.

Los Angeles ond the Pacific Coost gets its 
first United Golf Association tournament next 
week for four days. And the distinction of serv- 
ing OS host goes to the West Coast Golf Club, of 
which medico C. A. Bradford is heod-mo^. Work- 
ing with the club to the nth degree were city offi- 
ciols who granted use of the Harding course at 
Griffith Pork for the tournament. 

Archie Hoirston, local school teacher and the 
club's publicity man, who also ploys a good gome, 
gove this dept. some notes on the coming tourney 
thot may prove interesting to followers) of ploy on* 
the greens.* ^ 

Hoirston considers Howord WheOler, U6A 
cHompion,' the logicol fovorite. "Over the tricky 
Hording course, which will be 350 yards longer 
next Tuesdoy, it still looks made to order for long 
hitters, of which Wheeler i» most consistent. He 
is the longest hitting crosshonded player in the 
f world, and his irons are as smart as any professid^ 
ol I hove ever seen. He was on the long por five 
eighteenth in two and rimmed the cup twice for 
oogie 3's. For my money, I'll toke Howard >Vheel- 

Hoirston figures Oscar Clisby ond Monroe 
jloyfcin, df Los Angeles, ore Wheeler's biggest 
ttlireots. Of Clisby he soys: "Clisby has been con- 
jtisteRt in winning club toumoments his post win- 
tor, ond bos played steadily near por for several 
wonths.' His putting and opprooching hos given 
[liim conslderobie trouble this summer, but he is 
!%rarfcing hard to improve in this deportmlsnt." 

^j , Boykin hos had trouble with his irons since 
Jm changed about o month ago," Hairstion stoted. 
rHe hoen't been down to form for sevtrai weeks 
but he's o tough motch player as sho^n by hie 
frouncing of Clisby in the Eogle spoMorod Qt]^

Jackie Robiiuton, California's 
athletic genius, showed baseball 
fans what to expect should Ne- 
groes ever b« admitted to the 
Big Leagues, in pacing his team, 
the Pasadena Sox, to the South- 
em California amateur baseball 
championship at Wrigley Field 
1st Sunday night 

With the former Pasadena ace 
doing the almost impossible, 
stealing home whUe the ball was 
in the pitcher's hand, the Sox, a 
well organized nine, composed of 
present and past Pasadena jaysee 
team members, whipped Bakers- 
fleld, 12-7. 

Sharing honors j with Robinson 
was Nat'! Moreland, Redlands uni- 
versity football player and new 
pitching discovery. Moreland 
pitched part of Saturday's game 
and the entire nine frames Sun- 
day night.

Skip and Skiopy 
Thrill Hundreds 
at Air Show 

Thrilling a crow^ of several 
hundred spectators! Howard 
"Skip" Smith and Mack "Skippy" 
Gravelly staged parachute jumps 
Sunday afternoon at Western 
Avenue airport in a show spon- 
sored by Prank Ernest Post, Vetr 
erans of Foreign Wars. "f 

-Also appearing , in the show 
was William Aikens, highly ef- 
ficient pilot anrf stunt-man, who 
piloted a government plane. 

"Skip" and "Skippy," wearing 
the colors of Hugo, the hot-dog 
man, were hampered somewhat 
by wind velocity. Especially was 
this true of Gravelly, who was 
the first to jtmip. He landed some 
Brother" i distance from the crowd. Smith, 
on the other hand, had better 
luck, landing only a short dist- 
ance away from the large group 
of spectators.

■ Defending his UGA laurels will 
be Howard Wheeler, of Atlanta, 
iving last week, Wheeler has 
bee^ pJaying the tricky Harding

e greatest threat to Wheeler 
on the coast appears to be, on 
past performances, Oscar Clisby. 
Pushing both will be Monroe Boy- 
kin i and Lem Grant. Others of 
ti)« I host club who will bear 
watkhing are Roscoe Jones, Mar- 
ion Forsythe, Archie Hairston 
and O. R. Jackson. Ncne of these, 
however, have shown champion- 
ahin form in recent tournaments. 

ke Hartsfield. stablemate of 
Whleeler's, appears most likely to 
cause the defending champion a 
lot [of .trouble. It was Hartsfield 
who i>eat Wheeler recently to 

the southern crown. 
Flat Ball, Palos Park, Chicago 
professional, although not here 
as Vet, may also be considered a> 
a dangerous threat.

HAMPTON, Va, Aug. 17-Jini- 
mie McDaniels, California boy 
whom Ralph Metcalfe sent to 
Xavier university on an athletic 
scholarship, thereby introducing 
to the Negro tennis world its 
greateit possibility to date, is 
expected to duplicate his win of 
the New York open singles and 
doubles championship and be- 
come the first American Tennis 
association singles winner from 
the Pacific Coast. McOaniels a 
Los Angeles product, was pre- 
ceded in the National doubles 
winning bracket by James 
"Slick" Stocks of Pasadena, who 
last won the doubles with Tom- 
mie Walker, in 1937. 

The 23rd annual ATA tourna- 
ment got underway here Monday 
with a record entry, and will 
close Saturday evening. 

In the N. Y. State open, Mc- 
Daniels, who is the Southern In- 
tercollegiate champion, crushed 
handsome Dr. Reginald Weir in 
three straight sets, 6-3, 8-0, 6-1. 
It was Weir's third comeback 
attempt after a year's layoff. On 
the two previous occasions, last 
in 1937, he was successful, but 
in. the shy and reserved, redskin- 
ned Califomian, he met more 
than a match for his own brill- 
iant tennis. 

MeDaniels is undoubtedly the 
greatest Negro tennis player, 
potentially^, within the ken of 
current fatjs. A natural player, 
he plays a '^U-nigh form per- 
fect game, fast and tireless and 
is rapidly gaiiiing confidence 

His doubles partner is Rich- 
ard Cohen, also Of Xavier, whom 
McDaniels defeated for the coll- 
e^te championsbik In addition 
to Weir, McDaniels, will meet

The President Goes On 
Vacation i 



' "I'll be seeing you," said Presi- 
dent Roosevelt this week when he 
embarked on the U. S. S. Tuscaloo- 
sa to visrf points in New England 
and Canada. Before leaving his 
home in New York- the nation's head 
said that he would coll a special ses- 
sion of Congress IF EUROPE SHOWS 

We suppose that current Ciano- 
iHitler confab is a symptom only of 
"Peace on Earth, Good Will Toward 
Men". ^ i 




Social Security Law 

After on experiment of about four 
years, the President, by his signature 
lost Friday, put in motion a new So- 
cial Security Act. It is sold by many, 
in its sections on old'oge insurance, 
that the act is decidedly superior to 
the low it supplants. The new meas- 
ure moves away from private insur- 
ance concepts that marred the form- 
er law and substitutes a closer op- 
■ prooch to true social legislation. The 
insurance pxayments will still bear a. 
i-easonably direct relationship to 
one's private earnings and to con- 
tributions he has paid; however, the 
payments ore to be based on the av- 
erage rather than total earnings. Al- 
so, it will vary with the family status 
of the individual. 

Under the former law* a man earn* 
in^n average wage of $1 00 a month 
for five years would have received at 
the end cf that time only the amount 
of $17.50 a month, single or marri- 
ed. Under the new low, he will now 
receive $26.25 a month, if single; 
and $39.38 if married. His widow 
will receive a pension. Younger wi- 
dows with children will be provided 

Payments under the new law will 
■^gin January 1, 1940, instead of 
.1942. \ 

• This change in the Social Security 
Act r>o doubt will quell some of the 
over-emphasized arguments on old- 
age pensions that hove for a long 
time puzzled and confused the vot- 
'ars of California. 

The Two Opening Guns 

. (Editorial from Tha Washlnrton Tribuie) 

1 The appointment of Dr. Emmett 
'J. Scott to a position in the Publicity 
Department of the Republican No- 
^ioTHil Committee with Chairman 
John Hamilton's statement that he 
will serve as "one of the Chairman's 
advisors on problems relating to col- 
ored citizens", would seem to indi- 
cate tKat, at lost' the Republican 
Party and the Republican Notional 
Committee are waking up to the 
ne«d and necessity of conducting a 
program of education among Negro 
voters just as similar programs are 
going forward in the education of 
other segmental units of the Arneri- 
con population. 

The Washington Tribune echoes 
Chairman Hamilton's statement 
thot "Dr. Scott is one of the out- 
standing Negroes of this country", 
and that "the Republican National 
Committee is very fortunate to ob- 
tain his services at this critical peri- 
od in the history of our country". 

Probably no man among Us is bet- 
ter acquainted with the social, po- 
litical ar>6 economic problenrw of the 
Negro people. };.jcf 1^ 

Probably nOk''r|>an is more able. In 
e forthright wdy> to loyally inter; 
the moss public opinion of Ne- 
{|r» citizMii t» the High Cofrvnand 

<^f the Republican Porty. / 

We shall expect him to sensitively 
'\ ifeoct to Negro Public Opinion, ond 
fajthfully represent it, as he did dur- 
i!ng the trying /ears of the World 
War, while serving as Special A^ist- 
ant to Secretary Newton D. Baker of 
the War Department. 

This designation of Dr. Scott's is 
the second gesture of concern on the 
part of the Republican National 
Committee with regard to colored 
citizens' following close upon the 
first gesture — the appointment lost 
year of 10 colored members of the 
Republican Program Committee of 
which Dr. Glenn Frank is chairman. 

Each of the colored persons ap- 
pointed on the Program Committee 
is an outstanding, loyal member of 
the Republican Party, pledged to 
frankly point out to the party the 
reasons for the widespread swi/ig 
away from it during the past Presi- 
dential elections. 

These members ore Bisho^i D. ^. 
Sims of New York City, an influen- 
tial Bishop of the Great African 
Methodist Episcopal Church; Hon. 
T. G. Nutter of Charleston, W. Vo., 
who has stood on the firing line of 
the Republican Party and in behalf 
of the best interest of his race for 
many years; Mrs. Sara Pelhom 
Speaks, who represents the younger 
voice of Negro vomers and who al- 
ready has won her spurs in the lost 
two. Presidential campaigns, and 
has established herself in New York 
OS a forceful personality, deeply 
conscious of the fact that the young 
Negro must be considered in all 
plans and programs looking to the 
success of the party in the future. 

The some high praise can be spok- 
en regarding the others, the Hon. 
Francis E. Rivers, outstanding at- 
torney of New York City; Mrs. S. 
Joe Brown of Des Moines, Iowa, lead- 
ing clubwoman and civic worker; 
the Hon. F. M. Roberts of Los Ange- 
les, California, former member of 
the Legislature and Progressive Re-

With deer season in fuU blaze 
in/' most of the State, and those 
Md hats poking furtively throiigh

little ounce of caiition w*Jich 
may spell the difference between 
a deer and disaster. 

"Buck" fever, and careless 
handliiig of guns, Isjist year 
brought the tragic trcrphies of 
hunting season to some 2,000 hu- 
man lives in the United States. 

That patch of brown ^een sud- 
denly through the brushy the un- 
expected breaking of ai twig in 
a silent wood, may be ta^ir game. 
Or again, as too many over-has- 
ty nimrods discovered last year, 
it may be another hunter. 

Let's have no monuriients to 
carelessness this season, 1 but on- 
ly trophies of sportsmanship. 

From now on, there should be 
less beefing in the world — abo t 
beefsteaks anyway. 1 ' 

With the Department of Agri- 
culture announcing a n^w sub- 
stance, extracted from j pineap- 
ple, which can make e^en the 
toughest meat as tendeir as a 
choice filet, there's a promise 
of more contented living |for ev- 
eryone save vegetarians. 

Since the way to a man's heart 
is said to be through his stom- 
ach, bromelin, this newlenzyne 
which goes to work on the tough 
connective tissues and | breaks 
them down into compliaht ten- 
derness, should make success 
certain for brides and house- 
wives. Even if improper cooking 
has, figuratively speakingl let a 
good steak leap from the frying 
pan into the fire, there's n^w the 
likelihood that a dashb of ^n-pme- 
lin can salvage , the charred re- 
mains. I 

In brief, the discovery of this 
new enzyme says a'moutjhful! 

"Extra! Extra! Here, y'are. 
Mister, pa(>er8 one dollar apiece." 

So might a newsboy of Calif- 
ornia's gold rush, days have 
shouted his wares, ancf they 
would have sold like hotcakes, 

Reporting on the fabulous 
prices of the American (period. 
Dr. John W. Caughey of the his- 
tory department at the Univer- 
sity of California, Los Angeles, 
gives the modem newspaper 
reader something cheerful to re- 
flect on. 

For only ^ few p)ennies he re- 
ceives a paper bearing inews of 
his community, state, nation and 
of events in the far cofmers of 
the earth. Three generations ago 
it was a far different story in 
California. People stood in long 
lines for hours before postoffice 
windows, anxiously awaiting 
mail bringing news from the 
East. And when one astjute trav- 
eler arrived fnom Nejw York, 
bringing with him 1,500 copies of 
Horace Greeley's "Tribune," he' 
did a land office busines for two 
hours. At the end of that Short 
time every issue had been sold — 
at one dollar a copy! 

Today news, of an entire city, 
of the whole world, is laid at 
the doorsteps of Califomians for 
a tiny fraction of that cost. Tech- 
nology has helped achieve it 
through the revolutionary ad- 
vance of the ! printing press. 
Lines of communication encircl- 
ing the globe have helped ach- 
ieve it by placing the^most isol- 
ated hamlet on the news fronts 
of the world. And the continuous 
and helpful support of advertis- 
ing and readers' support of ad- 
vertisers, also helped achieve it. 

That is why today's! newspap- 
ers can provide ten [times the 
news of those one dollar copies 
of a hundred years ai{o — at one 
twentieth the cost! , 


New York's Fair may be ■

from California her natural dow- 
ry of summertime tourists. With 
the Iwunty of an outdoor won- 
derland added to her own 
World's Fair, just the reverse has 
been happening. 

The spell of California's

greater than that of last June, 
and exceeding by 2,875 persons

By the American standard, 
wages are very low in Japan, but 
the rate is more than double that 
paid in China. The general 
standard and quality of living is 
on an infinitely higher level than 
in China. The majority of Jap- 
anese live frugally and cleanly, 

viciously inhuman because it is 
based upon the unscientific and 
immoral theory of superiority of 
white persons over black and 
brown persons. Few modern so- 
cial thinkers have grappled seri- 
ously with the racial roots of the 
imperialist-capitalist system. Ra- 
dicals have treated the sufftect 
incidentally, as if it were not an 
integral feature of the social sys-

have historically minimized it. 
So much so that colored Ameri-

have denounced the little busi- 
ness-men of the. group as a men- 
ace as great as big capitalists. 
They are chauvinists who stress 
too niuch the racial aspect of 
rcconqmic expjloitation. 

Many argue against colored 
people suppoirting colored busi-

like white businessmen. The 
comrades apparently fail to see

als of the highly industrialized 
nations in the world's market. 

Mr. Gunther describes all this 
in detail. He tells us that the 
Japanese are the only people in 
Asia who keep abreast of the 
great Western nations. And they 
also have aU the "faults" of those 
highly industrialized nations. "The 
Japanese are industrious, effici- 
ent and progressive. They are 
expansionists, determined self- 
confident and aggressive. Mr. 
Gunther clearly shows a prefer- 
ence for the easy-going, charm- 
ing and inefficient Chinese. The 
Japanese, too, are aware of the 
greater and more ancient tradi- 
tions of the Chinese, to whom 
they, are indebted for their cul- 
ture. Japanese adore the Chin- 
ese cuisine, which is superior to 
theirs. But they have a mortal 
fear ' of becoming Chinafied po- 

Japan is thie most overcrowded, 
country, in the world. The Jap- 
anese have been compelled to 
overflow into China. Japan is 
jdoing in China precisely what 
oth^r great powers have done. 
But to a moralist that is no ex- 
cuse. The inexorable necessity 
of Japanese expansion seems a 
more logical one.

er even third time — a visit

. > cnrioos lore. 

f * Like many New England cit- 
ies, changes are in^equently 
auide in historic Boston. Hence, 
- a few wedES ago. when once 
again I was privileged to visit 
ttds doinc of American culture. 
it was though I stepped from 
leal life into memories. 

A quiet stroll across the old 
Onatry Burial Ground estab- 
lisbed in the year 1660, assur- 
i' ad me tluit it had under^ne 
•Biy such dianges as the re- 
katelitation of a headstone tliat 
' liad been wrecked. And very 
flew bad even this repair. In 
■lost cases, the stones that have 
crumbled apart are tied- to- 
getbcT by corrugated wire. 

People from all sections of 
tlie country and various parts 
«< the world are seen standing 
with bowed heads or tq whis- 
pers reading inscriptions on 
• tombstones of John Hancock, 
Samuel Adams. Samuel Will- 
ard. Gov. Thomas Gushing, 
Paul Revere. Crispus Attucks 
and other departed heroes of 
American independence. 

In the old Granery Burial 
Qnmiiil there was one grave in 
"'which I became i particularly 
intereatad— the grive of Cris- 
pQS Attnclcs, Negro patriot who 
won the distinction of having 
riied the first blood of the Rev- 
olution and sacrificed his life 
for liberty and freedom of the 
Ameiican colonies. 

There is a sort of satredness 
about a visit to the resting 
place of these early American 
Berees. but often one's arten- 
,tion is arrested by a very 
'qoaiait inscriptioo on a tomb 
which reads, in effect, some- 
thing like this: "Here rests the 
remains of So and So. the 

faithful wile of Mr. ." 

Prom the old Granery^we 
woided our way up grade to 
Boston Common, and in fancy 
saw groups of early Americans 
or colonists, as they were call- 
ed at that time, huddled in 
little groups discussing Great 
Britain's method of taxation. 
As I stood there on that sacr 
red soil with green grass on 
its bosom and tall trees sur- 
rounding its comers, I realized 
that this plot of land called 
Bostoa Common was dedicat- 
ed to the memory of a group. 
of men and women who loved 
liberty more than life. Some 
of them had given up lives of 
huniry, braved the ravages of 
eiimata as well as hostile In- 
diaas in search of religious 
freedom — if not achieved for 
themselves, then for their pos- 

' Tntn^ the Commons to old 
South Church where we linger- 
ed but a short time. Then 
Faofeuel Hall — the other place 
1 had mentioned in my notes 
M "^lace to be visited." The 
doors to this history-lovers 
rilrine were locked and barred 
to vi a itats . so our stop-off on 
this occasion was restricted to 
the outside. 

I am happy to state tiiat the 
building stands today as it did 
yesterday: its walls and cover- 
ing uirtrammeled — except by 
the elements. 

Here again, while reverently 
gazing at the entrance of the 
great meeting place that once 
opened to receive William 
Ltoyd Garrison, John Brown 
and other noted abolitionists, 
my imagination played tricks. 
I could see rrederick Douglas, 
.the bronze knight of the anti- 
slavery pwiod, his white beard 
e earning in the lamp light, as 
• made his way down the 
■isle to the rostrum — Douglas 
;aras the evening speaker. On 
Hm oeanoa, his feet dragged 
a bit and his head was slight- 
ly bowed. Close on th« heels 
of Donglas c « m e Sojourner 
Tkutfa, but there wis no thought 
' of d nT*"" regisred on the gro- 
itcaque countenance of that 
j gawky black woman. However. 
riie sensed that Frederick 
IDouglaa bad struck a snag in 
the path be bad paved to free- 
dom. It was this time and this 
■ituatiOB that prompted the 
^pn^tin^ '^ God dead, Fred- 
triA?" from Sojourner Truth 
■Bd this question has become 

'- It' was a most pleasant day 
I dream, picturing Douglas and 
fojoomer Truth mounting the 
I itaiza that lead to fame by way

Predict Negro 
Federol Judge 
in U.S. in '40 

WASHINGTON. Aug. 24— TThe 
appointment of a Negro federal 
judge in continental United Staties 
in 1940 is predicted freely in cer- 
tain circles in Washington. 

Desirous of holding the gre^t 
Negro vote which helped pile up 
such terrific majorities fw him 
in 1'932 and 1936, PresideiJ^t 
Rosevelt is being coimselled by 
members of his inner circle qt 
politicians to make such an ab- 
pointment early next year. 1 

The appointment would natur- 
ally be n»de in New York where 
the conctirrence of Sena t^or JF 
Meade and Wagner could be obi- 
tained without necessitating or 
precipitating a confirmation fi^i 
in the senate. I 


This move naturally would not 
be much cause for jubilation souta 
of tite Mason-^Dixon line and 
would also do much to c«aent re-! 
lations in New York between an 
unfriendly New Deal and Tarn

Report Hoiled os 

Finest in History 

NEW YORK 24— Annual 
Report submitted by Grand 
Daughter Ruler Abbie M. John- 
son at the great New York City 
convention of the IBPOE. was 
hailed today as one of the finest 
in Elks' history. 

Otustanding among Mrs. John- 
son's activities this year was her 
fight with the Department of the 
Interior to remove discrimina- 
tory practices in tlie National 
Park Service in Washington, 
D. C. 

A series of letters between Mrs. 
Johnson and E. K. Bur lew. <. first 
assistant secretary of the Interior, 
resulted in an official investiga- 
tion in the Park Service and some 

The R e p o r t revealed Mrs. 
Johnsons' incessant activities as 
promotional head of the national 
Women's Auxiliary, and told of 
her many tours throughout Elk- 
dom. ] 

As delegate to the National 
Council of Negro Women, Mrs. 
Johnson contributed much to that 
organization and was placed upon 
lihe Executive Board for that 
meeting, and was appointed 
chairman of the Finance Commit- 


In referei^ce to Negro Women's 
meeting, the Ellcs' Grand Daugh- 
ter Ruler stated, "One thing 
w^hich struck me forcibly in tliat 
meeting was the' remark by the 
founder and President our own 
Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune, that 
it did not take numbers to put 
over a program but the sincere 
an faithful few. Too, her advice 
that we return the next day in 
.a spirit for business, and leaving 
out little technicalities. There 
were many splendid features of 
the convention, but among them 
was the petition from the Coun- 
cil to the Governor to name one 
f the new schools the "James 
Waldon Johnson" in memory of 
our late g^eat leader who met 
with such an untimely death, but 
who was incomparable among bis 

Mrs. Johnson paid tribute to 
her co-workers when she stated, 
"My unstinted praise and deepest 
gratitude goes to each head of 
the departmi»its for it seems that 
each one has vied with the other 
to bring her department in ahead 
of the otlier.'^ 

"The Educational Department 
wait forwaird this year as usual, 
but even a step farther in org- 
anizing study «^ubs which prov- 
ed inspirational in many cities 
and communities, and cre ate d 
more interest w tiie department. 
The Child Wc$(tere Dqiartment 
did their usual share of caring 
for unforttmate ciiildren; seeing 
that they were adequately cloth- 
ed." : 

Watchers of the coffers in the 
ladies' branch of the EQu^ org- 
anizatioo were gratified to learn 
that the Shrine h^ banked, sep- 
arately, this year IISIS. 29., a rec-

Nationol Medical Associotion OiNttt 
President-Elect Jesse Leach of FKnt j ' 

: NEW YORK, Aug. 24. (ANP)— Like a simmer- 
ing pot of Potoge Gras' brought too sudden boil, the 
<Oosing sessions here lost Saturday of the 45th annual 

convention of the National Mcdi-^ 
cal association fairly sizzled as 
the fight over the qualifications 
of President-elect Jesse L. Leach 
was climaxed by NMA declaring 
his office vacant and ousting him 
from leadership of the nation's 
rankinjft Negro medical organiza- 

Accused of unfitness for the 
high position because of his con- 
viction in 1928 in Flint, Mich., 
his home city, of violation of the 
federal liquor laws, Dr. Leach 
■was compelled to answer the 
charges brought against him at 
the convention by an NMA com- 
mittee headed by Dr. Roscoe C. 
Gile£ of Chicago. Earlier in the 
convientioh sessions it was thought 
that the ouster proceedings 
would not be necessary as con- 
vantion officials said Dr. Leach 
had promised to resign as presi- 
dent-elect, if the body would 
grant him vindication. ~ 

By afanost onanimoiu vdte he 
was granted vindication, but 
then instead of resigning, Dr. 
Leach was reported as declar- 
. ing be intended to assume the 
duties of his new office. Senti- 
ment against him crystallised 
from ttut moKent, the result 
being tliat NMA declared his 
offlee vacant, then elected Dr. 
Albert W. Dumas of Natchez, 
Mlaa., in his stead. 
Dr. Dumas took office immedi- 
ately. It was reported in some 
quarters that Dr. Leach would 
fight the ouster in the courts, but 
at week-end it was stated no ac- 
tion had as yet been taken. 

The convention was NMA's 
largest and most successful, with 
over 1200 delegates and 2000 vis- 
itor* present from every state in 
the union. The scientific papers 
were enlightening, and all sessions 
were largely attended notwith- 
standing the other metropolitan 

At the welcome meeting, Maytr 
LaGuardia was warmly applaud- 
ed when he turned the city over 
to the delegates and reiterated his 
policy of absolute impartiality. 
The following officers were 
elected: Dr. A. W. Dumas, presi- 
dent; Dr. A. N. Vaughn, St. Louis, 
president-elect; Dr. E. B. Perry, 
Ka n sas City. Mo., 1st vice presi- 
dent; Dr. W. D.> Giles, Chicago,

New County Tax 
Rote to Be II 
Lower ' 

The new county tax rate for 
the 1939-40 fiscal year will def- 
initely be lower than /last year's 
rate, Supervisor Gordbn L. Mc- 
Donough s6 declared yesterday 
following budget studies in which 
many economies he demanded 
were ordered by the Board of 

As the budget stands today, a 
tax rate of less than $1:51— the 
rate last year — on each $100 as- 
sesse valuation is required with 
still another week before adop- 
tion date of August 30. 

Elimination of what he termed 
"unnecessary expenditures" and 
reductions in other budget items 
were first demanded by Supervis- 
or McDonough when the prelim- 
inary budget was adopted June 
30. He contended that certain 
ijems could be cut without im- 
pairing functions of government. 
These beliefs were sustained by 
the Board of Supervisors in br- 
dering many reductions in the 
preliminary budget estimates.

The conviction of J. McFarland 
Ervin, only Negro school attend-

City school system, was reversed 
and judgment jset aside by the 
Appellate Department of the 
Superior Court last Friday rnorn-

Curtis C. Taylor and Willis O. 
TVIer who charged that Ervin 
did not receive a fair trial in the 
Justice's Court of Huntington 
Park last July 10, where Ae was 
convicted by Judge Stanley Mof- 
fat of a morals offense. 

Young Ervin, son of the lat^ 
Dr. J. F. Ervin, for 25 years 
president of Jarvis Christian col-,

the local social and professional

from the University of Southern 
California. For the past five years, 
he has been City Attendance Of-

Ervin was arrested on morals 
charges preferred by Erna Felk- 
er and Elizabeth Russell, white 
women,, growing out of a com- 
plaint of an alleged incident on 
the night of July 26, in the Fox 
Florence theatre on Flojence ave- 
nue and Compton blvd. 

At a sensational trial before 
Judge Moffat, in which the the- 
atre manager and two women 
swore tht Ervin had been guilty 
of indecent exposure and Ervin 
denied the charges, he was found 
guilty. During the course of the 
trial the Judge refused to allow 
Taylor to cross-examine the wit,-

Upon leaving the home of 
Paul Revere by way of a back- 
door iron stairway, you are 
wont to picture the rider in 
boots and spurs, his long black 
gun. still a wall decoration, 
latched to his side, not wanting 
to arouse the other members of 
his family as he steals quietly 
from this home bent upon what 
is probably the most famous 
horse ride in history. 

As I passed along the streets 
of the city where the liberty 
and freedom of this nation 
were born, I was fiercely re- 
minded that Revere, Attucks, 
Salem and the others, fought 
for the liberty of all people. 
Those who came and those who 
were brought to this country. 
Inspired by the courage and 
unselfish devotion of these ear-

of a nation, but of a cause —

will banish race hatreds and

fore the aroma completely drift- 
ed into space of an alleged 'Ku 
Klux Klan threat to bomb the 
home a wealthy Eastern white 
woman .unless she refrained from 
selling her Newport, R. I. home 
to Father Divine and his "An- 
gels," a letter' was delivered to 
Dr. R. T. Hamilton, a local phy- 
sician, from one of the "angels" 
in far-off Los Angeles, offering 
to settle a $15 bill for medical 
service rendered February 13, 

In the letter, the "angel" stated 
that the bill was for $15, of which 
$5 had been paid, leaving a bal- 
ance of $10. She said in her let- 
ter that Father Divine wanted all 
of his followers to square all 
bills as far bSck as they could 

Dr. Hamilton's reply to the 
"angel" was that more than 32 
years had passed, and no recollec- 
tion of the event was recorded — 
but if she recalled that the bill 
was not completely paid and 
wanted to pay the balance, he 
would be very glad to receive it. 
He further stated that there 
must be something in the teach- 
ings of Father Divine, as to make 
an individual want to settle a 
bill that far back.

St.-Car Rides 
Pay Tax«!S 

The advertisement of the Los 
Aijgel*^ Railway which appears 
in the EAGLE today iitates that 
the annual taxes paid I»t |he Los 
Angeles Rtiilwajr i are 3 in access 
of |925,000.i; 'I 

Tliis means tiiat there must 
be about 36,000 seveni<^t street- 
car rides taken every day for 
365 days o< every year in order 
that, the Ifw An gelejs Railway J 
may pay its tax bills to the 
County, State and Uncle Sam. 

This is the amouht the com- 
pany itself pays a^ taxes and 
does "not take into/ account the 
heavy additional taxes paid by 
the company's foui^ thousand em- 
ployees, many of whom own their 
own homes. / 

President P. B. Harris of the 
Los Angeles Railway points out 
that when his/ company pays 
nearly a millioii dollars a year 
in Uxes it relieves all other tax- 
payers of just that much of that 
which must be collected to meet 
governmental costs, and shows 
that industries of the size of the 
Los Angeles Railway are real 
assets to the people of a com- 
munity and agencies of great 
savings to the taxpayers.

Beaver is in favor in Paris this year. We like it here for its durability and for Its eonpliraentlng 
any complexion. Sheared Beaver makes the sleeves and Peter Pan eolllar on this very youthful gray 
wool coat. There is an extreme left elosiny in this model, whic is made on the prinoeas line for flat- 
tery. The hat suggests the Beaver trim, in brown velonis, with a posttllioB crown aikl pom pom to 
make it definitely 1940. 

Shades of the nineties ... in the bustle dress which is fashions favorite again are really smart. 
Ths version in brown wool has leg-o-mntton sleeves and bustle in brown UMMre. There is a back clos- 
ing with tiny buttons and a buckle to match, so y on can leave the bustle off whenever yon like. AS

^ ?) J I Well, wi^i the end of this month the tide will recede 
rapidly. . . and the Southland wave of visitors wtll leave 
in their fresh wake a number of pleasant memories : In- 
cidentally, visitors will take a lot of memories with them. 

Lest you think I'm not aware of the pulse beat of 
those we have with us always, this week^^m beginning 
with the things that visitors haven't influenced. . . . 

Monday afternoon, pixtpen young women answered 
the invitation of Mr. and Mrs. Tames Bratton to a lunch- 
eon in their home at 1056 So. Serrano. . . The motive 
for the affair was the Bratton's daughter, Betty who 
is now Mrs. J. Howard Scott, Jr. Yes, I said Mrs. . . . 
No, I didn't know either. It happened April 25 in the 
famous Gretna Green of the Coast, Santa Ana, just 
before J. Howard returned to Washington, D. C, where 
Betty will join him within the next week. . . and attend 

Howard University. I 

Jaat before Betty embarks Thursday, Mrs. Georce Rowland 
will boat a shower for her in the cosy Rowland home. Howard's 
a fonaer CCLA stadenL . . BoUi sets of pareats are takinc 
the aorpriM in grand stride and rallying to the happy marrieds 
wMh !««• aad Umos. . . and here's wiaiiinc the pretty and vivae- 
itma (yea khow it, too) Betty loU of happineas in the Ci^tol 
City where she will make bier bona. 

I like the Los Angeles mode of recognizing achiev- 
ment. . . So am quite happy to receive an announcement 
of the "At Home" honoring Mrs. Loren Miller Satur- 
day from four to six with Mmes. Edmund Ambros Hufd 
and Jerome Hatcher as hostesses. . . at 2087 West Twen-

erson has resigned, the faithful 
Democratic workers are hopeful 
that they will get their reward. 
It is rumored that Clarence Muse 
is a member of Governor Olson's 
Colored Cabinet, if there be such 
a thing. 

Many people are wondering 
why the State Controller is al- 
lowed to move into the S. R. A., 
a non-civil service subdivision 
and bring in Civil Service ap- 
pointees to usurp jobs that should 
be held by non-Civil Service 

The Olson Administration 
should make some arrangement 
for our young people to receive 
a fair deal when they go into the 
S. R. A. office to apply for em- 

Carl jol}nson reports progress 
among the young Republicans. If 
looks liKe the Young G. 0. P. is 
going down the line for New 
York's District Attorney Dewey. 

Colored women of California 
have arrived. In the ranks of the 
Republicans there are Mrs. Bet^ 
ty Hill,' Mrs. Charlotta A. Bass, 
Mrs. B. Mason and Mrs. Bemice 
Johnson, among the leaders. 
! On the Democrat side there are 
Mrs. Fay Allen, Mrs. Jessie Ter- 
ry, Mrs. Faustina Johnson, Mrs. 
Enola Chism and Mrs. F. Albriei 
of Oakland. 

I hear that Emory Crain is 
rounding up the F. Q. Morton 
club for the coming fray. If so, 
look out for Mrs. Maxine Heflin 
in the political arena again.

If You Foil to Read THE CAUPORNIA EMLM Vou Moy Never Know It Haipper^ 

' ■ ■- ^ — 

Prof . Herman 

and 70a wm be haiqpier. 

Q. E. w.— wm my boy friend 
and I go back together? 

Ans. — ^It appears that you and 
your friend will settle ypur dif- 
ferences and resume your friend- 
ship, very soon.' 

O. M. S.— Will my sister come 
to visit me? 

Ans.— Concerning upfln your 
question I find that you sent 
yotir sister 20 dollars with 
which to come to New York. Due 
to her carelessness she has lost 
the money, and is ashamed to 
send for more. She will be able 
to come, but it will take her 
sometime to get the fare togeth- 

A. M. J. — Is my husband com- 
ing back soon? 

Ans. — My Psych o-Mentalist 
Crystal reveals that your hus- 
band has been gone for almost 
three months, and since that time 
3rou have heard very little from 
him. Since he has found a good 
job he has decided not to return. 
He will send for you soon, 

N. M.— I am so glad that I 
bought a paper and saw your ad- 
vertisement, because I was hav- 
ing so much trouble and. worry 
that my health was in danger. I 
am taking this opportunity to 
thank you for your kindly ad- 
vice. My son has stopped drink- 
ing and has found a steady job. 

C. O. R. — WUl I ever be suc- 
cessful and happy? 

Ans. — According to joxa lucky 
stars and guiding planet, you 
have had a hard struggle being 
the mother of nine children, and 
are in need of advice. Write in 
for a private reply as the space 
is limited and you will receive a 
thorough answer. 

U. J. — Where is my brother? 

Ans. — A careful analysis shows 
that your brother was last seen 
in Hazel Crest, IlL, and that by 
writing to 175 Ashland Avenue 
in that City, you will be forward- 
ter paying job very soon? ed his address. He is in a near 

Ans. — It comes to me that you by city in Illinois. 
have taken several civil service C. E. R. — Will I marry? 

examinations and have found it ; ^nj — According to your Zo- 
to be fruitless. Don't give up for , ^^f. you are weU mated, with the 
you will receive a job out of one person bom May 21, and should 
of the exammations you have gg^ along welL I vision your 


Becently Prof. Herman has 
been writing about the "Ship of 
Matrimony" and its wreckage on 
the Yocks' of separations and di- 
vorces. And perhaps these vari- 
ous reasons are keeping others 
from embarking on this journey. 
But married hfe can be a vay 
happy one, and is to thousands 
of couples all over the world. 

Haven't you heard men and 
women brag about their respec- 
tive mates? You knew from the 
way that it was said, it came 
light from the heart Well, you 
can just bet they are enjoying 
their heavenly bliss. 

There certainly is no fun in 
living alone and having nothing 
definite to look forward to. 
Especially after having reached 
a Certain age. It makes little' dif- 
ference bow much a bachelor or 
"maid' may tell you they are en- 
joying their private individual 
lives because deep in their 
hearts, they envy THAT love, af- 
^cctidn and companionship. 

Perhaps you are one of the 
many, who pride themselves on 
being wise and sophisticated be- 
cause they have apparently 
llcdged the "Alter". But inward- 
^ you are wondering what is 
Irrong, that real loye and hap- 
piness have passed you by. In the 
•vent, this desrription fits you, 
write Prof. Herman, for your 
Astrology reading that will en- 
able you to find your true mate. 

S. A. — I received your letter 
today and was glad to hear from 
you. Your answer caused me to 
feel better than I have felt for 
aometime. as it made me realize 
that I have a friend in you. I 
have faith, and know that I will 
get the desired results. 

LuE.M. — The nature of your 
question requires a private re- 
ply. Write in|. at your earliest 

E. B. B.— Will I obtain a bet- 


W. L. P. — Is my wife truthful? 

Ansv — Probing into this affair 
I find that the doubt arose in 
your mind when your wife re- 
mained out on Saturday night 
She was telling the truth con- 

Nireming where she was. Trust 
/our wife more in the future. 

marrymg before the year is up. 
H. T. — Why does my husband 
stay out late on Satiirdays? 

Ans. — Probing into this affair 
I find that yoinr husband is no 
different from most- other men, 
as they aU l^e to^go orrt some

Twe young and ambitious parachute jumpers came face to face 
whh reality during the past seven daiys. Previous to these seven 
days, they envisi<med a flying trip to Chicago and then to New 
Yorie where they were to be a feature attraction of the £Iks' Grand 
Lodge, now in session in the Big Town.

Haeir wares for the "Herd 
fhey had hi^ hopes of enter- 
ing the Cleveland air races and 
•ubsequenUy the Chicago air 
races where they were to aim 
for prize money in the various 
asp^ts^of parachute jumping 
—the delayed, breakaway and 
spot jumps — at which they 
are very adept. - 

A pilot was -to accompany 
them East and they bad a -hip 
i to guarantee the trip. En route 
to New York they planned to 
stop-over in Chicago and pick 
up prize money for *he plane 
and entrants coming the lonp- 
est distanoB for tl* Windy City 

Back of all of these plans was 
a consuming desire to gain 
funds to continue their instruc- 
tion in aviation. The Elks* 
meet and the Chicago and 
Cleveland air shows offered 
Ihat opportunity. That's why 
they faced reality in the past 
seven days for the Elks' are 
• meeting this week and the 
Cleveland and Chicago races 
are in * le next few weeks. 

'• The pilot, who was to ac- 
company the youths, also has 
hopes. He envisioned the open- 
ing of a school in flying. His 
record in the air, his training, 
background and credentials, 
ahow that he is capable. 

Without the necessary funds 
themselves for the projected 
trip, they naturally sought an 
air-minded sponsor — public or 
private. It was then that, in 
their case, such an individual 
or individuals were at a premi- 
um, or didn't even exist. 

In most cases, they consider- 
td the youths and pilot and 
their contemplated trip too 
much of a gamble. Or else, 
those contacted as proposed 
sponsors felt that such a trip 
would hardly benefit the im- 
mediate community, as much 
lor example, as a community 
center, playground, or the 
like. And so, it was -o dice. 

Desperate, the youths ar '. 
the pilot the last heard by this 
pillar was that they still had 
not lost hope. But neverthele«. 
their cause at the moment .5 
not as bright, as it was vi- 
mis to the p^ seven days. 

All of which brings us to 
the observation that since, in 
most instances, those contact- 
ed by the youths and the pilot 
were sympathetic there should 
be some way of taking care of 
like problems in the futnre. 
After all, an ambitious but 
poor man, can do little with 

Because it does shape up as 
a commimity problem in most 
of its aspects, possibly an or- 
ganization of businesses in the 
community, could best sponsor 
worthy individuals and their 
causes through a supervised 
fund made up of regular con- 
tributions from each member 

With the settmg up of such a 
fund, it is possible that her^ 
after, such instances as that of 
the two youthful parachute 
jumpers and their pilot wouI«^ 
\te minimized.

NEW YORK, Aug. 24— Dr 
Charles H. Thompson, dean of 
the liberal arts college at How- 
ard univenity. and a member of 
the board of directors of the Na- 
tional Association for the Ad- 
vancement of Colored People, arid 
Walter White, executive secre- 
tary of the association, attended 
the closed seminar on culture in 
a democracy at the Congress on 
Education in a Democracy at Co- 
Jiunbia university here this week. 


iitgs — such as ' the Hamburger 
Building and the Orpheum The- 
atre. Shortly, he became McDon- 
ald-Kahn's "trouble-shooter," and 
foreman of the crew responsible 
for the main finishing ¥n>rk on 
msot of thedr c omlm ction jobs. 
For two yeari 1925 and 192S, 
Brawiey, witli Us friend and 
partner. P. W. Kirk. open;ed 
tike "Tuskegee Shop," special- 
izing in enston-bajit farnltore. 
In addition to traditional piec- 
es, ttaey originated many of 
their own designs. The famoos I 
"Valentino" s«ts — handsome, 
massiTe fnmitnre of a semi- > 
barrel shape — were created by I 
Brawiey. Also, he designed ! 
moeh modemistie fnmitnre, 

wliidi at that time was just be- t 
ginning to have a vogue. The 
shop did a great deal •( special 
order mannfaetnring for Bark- 
er Brothers and Hal Smith, dis 
tribntors of distinetive fnmi- 
Brawiey conducted his own 
business as furniture nutnufac- 
turer until the Depression in 
1929 affected the wholesale hous- 
es to which the majority of his 
output was usually sold. After 
liquidating his business he work- 
ed as foreman for William Gotts- 
schalk and Son. manufacturers of 
overstuffed furniture. Here he 
supervised the construction and 
designing of thp^furinture HH 
designing of the furniture frames. 
The fortunate circumstance of 
bonus payments to ex-service itien - 
in 1932 enabled Brawiey to start 
in business for himself again. 
This time he developed a special- 
ty which had never before been 
tried locally — the manufacturing 
of artists easels. The suggestion 
of such an industry was given to 
him, almost accidentally by a 
friend. Since its beginning, he 
has built up a business which 
supplies the major artist supply 
firms in the city, most of which 
in turn ship to their branches 
throughout the Southwest. These 
include Schwabacfier Frey. Dun- 
can Vail. Matthews, the Louvre 
and Michaels. Before Brawley's 
entry into easel manufacturing, 
parctically all easels sold locally 
i#ere manufactured in the East 
or*in northern California. j 

In addition to standard -type I 
easels — oil, water colo;- and large 
studio type — Brawiey has an es- 
pecially popular model,, of his 
Own design — the b e n ch easel, 
nick-named "Dunkie" by art 
students. This model, which is an 
easel combined with a bench, so 
that the artist can be seated while 
working, is used extensively in 
local art schools. 

Brawiey is married; 'his wife 
is a Los .Angeles school-teacher. 

The. couple live in Central Ave- 
nue Gardens, which is also the 
location of Brawley's manufac- 
turing plant. 

Brawley's advice to young peo- 
ple seeking a career is "learn a

memories of the year 1917-191S 
when America sent its s o ldie r s,

It is to the character of this man 
that the black soldier owes the

To the list of Tuskegee Institufe graduates who have ployed on Important 
part in the building of Los Angeles con be added the name of Francis T. Braw- 
iey, cobinet nxiker and easel manufacturer. On the foundation of skill in his 

occupation secured at Ti«kegee,^ 
Brawiey has built, through his 
own initiative, a variety of tech- 
niques. Most recently l}e has de- 
veloped easel manufacturing on 
a commercial scale successful, for 
the first time in local history. 

Brawley's father was a min- 
ister, so the family moved freq- 
uently. They left Petersburg, Vir- 
ginia, where in 1892 Frank was 
bom, for Atlanta, Georgia, where 
he, attended Morehouse college. 
Frank's youth was spent in Fer- 
nandina, Florida. 

After leavinf Morehouse, Braw-; 
ley entered Tuskegee Institute 
where he studied architecture, 
carpentry and cabinet making. 
During Frank's term at Tuske- 
gee, a disastrotis fire destroyed 
the dormitory there. A generous 
contribution of $25,000 from Ju- 
litis Rosenwald. enabled the In- 
stitute to rebuild the dormitory. 
To Frank Brawiey went the hon- 
or of constructing a gift which 
would express the Institute's ap- 
preciation to Rosenwald. He built 
a beautiful Mission Oak chair, 
which Rc«enwald used in his of- 
fice for many years. 


Brawlej- began his occupation- 
al career at the age of 21, y/hea 
he to<jk a civil service examina- 
tion for cabinet-maker, piassed 
with the highest grade out of 50 
entrants, and was assigned to 
work in the Washington, D. C. 
Navy Yard. He remained there 
^^il America's entrance into the 
World War in 1917. when he vol- 
unteered for service with the 
American Expeditionary Forces. 
, The Army Engineers kept 
Brawiey busy with construction 
work all over France. He was giv- 
en the rating of- a Quartermaster 
Sergeant and with a detail of 12 
men under film, was in charge 
of various types of construction 
— bridges, roads, barracks, tete., 
during his service period. 

Returning to the United States 
in 1918, he came West to Salt' 
Lake City. Utah. There, and later 
in Wyoming, he specialized in do- 
ing construction detail finishing 
— such as door and window 
frames and decorative colonades 
on hoases. This work included 
such large projects as a group of 
50 houses for Union Pa(;iflc work- 
ers, theatres, and boarding hous- 

Brawiey came to Los Angeles 
in 1922. Here he continued to fol- 
low the construction line for some 
time. He was assistant foreman 
under John Scott in the building 
of the large Barker Brothers 
warehouse. He worked with the 
firm of McDonald and K a h n, 
b 'ildin? contractors, with whom 
he did work on' lai^e office build-

Tourists Giyen 
Free Gasoline 

In a. bid to encourage tourik 
motor travel, France is offering 
up to $8 worth of gasoline free 
to all foreign motorists touring 
the country, advises the foreign 
travel bureau of the AutcHnob3e 
Club of Southern California. | 

An American motorist is allo\i^- 
ed a discount of one half a franc 
on every quart of gasoline pur- 
chased. The tourist can buy up 
to 600 litres under the plan and 
receive a bonus of gasoline wortp 
300 francs or $8.

Jerry Giesler and the Stote Athletic Commis- 
sion did a highly eommendoble thing this week when 
three Negro physicians, port of o group of seren, 
were named as examiners. It's the first time in the 
history of the commission that such o degree of 
; fair-play has been in evidence. Although there ore 
approximotely 100 boxers of tepio hue in the areo 
effected, the Negro physicians will be alternated 
along with the other appointees without regard to 
race. In other words, Jerry Giesler, who is olso o 
famous ottomey, let it be known that as chairman 
of the commission he was going to try to do his duty 
as he^saw it, without regard for race, creed or color. 
Heretofore, this pillar understands that usuolly ap- 
proximately two physicians hove been assigned the 
work thot now has been stretched out over seven 

men of medicine. 

♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ 

Jackie Wilson, the young ond likable boxing 
itor, returns to the Olympic auditorium next Tues- 
day night. On his recent record, it would seem that 
in the not too far distant future, Wilson will be rap- 
ping on the throne-room door of the lightweight- 
crown-holder who at the moment happens to be Lou 
Ambers. If the match was mode tomorrow, there 
are many who would unhesitatingly bock Wilson. 
In meeting Eddie Cool of Philadelphia, Wilson is 
after his eighth consecutive knockout. These K. 
O.'s hove been registered over the best lightweights 

on the coast. 

♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ 

With the finols of the Amateur Baseball cham- 
pionships slated for this week-end at Wrigley Field, 
baseball fans and major league ivory hunters will 
ogain be overwhekned by the ability of California's 
simon-pures for two teams, southern division ond 
northern division winners, will meet for the state 
title. The Pasadena Sox, paced by Jackie Robin- 
son the athletic marvel, will probably be favored to 
cop the stote crown. If you like boseboll and have 
on itch to see good boseboll, go see these simon-

Also on your "must" list, put the Negro Golf 
tourney now in progress on the Hording course at

the canvas four times beingg 
the canvas four times before be- 
ing coimted out by referee Abe 

Chester Parks changed his us- 
ual way of fighting also and raked 
Bobby Yannes with a devastating 
assortment of punches to easily 
win the decision in the six-round 
semi-windup. It was the "ump- 
teenth" time the two had met. 

In the four-round preliminaries, 
Rudy Oden got by Adam Moraga; 
Billy Mitchell stormed over i 
Johnny Monroe to win a three- j 
round TKO decision; Jimmy | 
Gleason nodded Carmen Geor- . 
gino, and Hi Jinks, a good pros- 
pect, outpunched BUly Malley in 
the opener. 

Jackie Wilson, seeking his 
eighth consecutive knockout win, 
meets Eddie Cool of Philadelphia 
next Tuesday night at the down- 
town swatatorium. Cool boasts a i 
record of never having been stop- 
: ped. His record shows triumphs 
' over Howard Scott, Pete Nebo, 
Frttzie Zivic, Torgr Canzoneri and 
the new lightweight champion 
Lou Ambers. 

Two six-rounders and three 
fours back up the Jimmy Murray 
WUson-Cool main event. 

An outgrowth of instances of^ 
lawlessness and vandalism it 
city hi^ sdiool athletic events, 
notably the June aU-city. track 
meet at the Coliseum, the Coor- 
dinating Committee for the Pro- 
motion of Good Citizenship held 
a meeting Tuesday afternoon in 
the- chambers of the Board of 

With Wmiam G. Lopez, assis- 
tant supervisor of physical edu- 
cation of the Board, presiding, 
the meeting was called to famil- 
iarize prominent community 
leaders and newspapermen wiui 
the program. 

'Because of reports by the Los 
Angeles Railway and City Plw- 
ground cozmnission, . it has 1^ 
come necessary for the Policy- 
Determining committee to take 
j immediate action in order to safe- 
guard the policies underlying in- 
terscholastic athletics," Mr. Lo- 
pez told the s»ssemblage. "The 
declaration of future policy is 
substantially that when incidents 
of this sort arise they are to be 
reviewisd by the conunittee and 
if the weight of evidoice brings 
the committee to the conclusion 
that students of a particular 
school or schools are responsible 
for such acts ot lawlessness and 
vandalism, the penalty in all cas- 
es shall be the suspension of the 
offending school or schools from 
active participation in intercho- 
lastic athletics." 

Schools thus suspended would 
be reqtiired to remain in "quar- 
antine" until reinstated by the 
Policy-Determimng conmiittec.

A sound educational program 
in citizenship to effect curtail- 
ment of these acts has been found^ 
necessary and speaking on vari- 
ous phases of the program Tues- 
day were Mr. Lopez, Paul Shaf- 
er, representing Vierling Kersey, 
superintendent of schools; Her- 
man Hill. Miss Gresser of the 
P-TA; Police Lieut Simms, Mr. 
Goddard of the L. A. Railway; 
Clin Day, of the Board of Edu- 
cation; and Rev. G. Albert Mil- 

The program of the Coordinat- 
ing Committee for the Promotion 
of Good Citizenship follows: 

1. The Citizenship Committee 
in administering the program, 
requests that school auditori- 
ums, facilities and rooms be 
made available to the commit- 
tee for purposes of conducting 
meetings. (Character-building ag- 


2. That the conunittee coop- 
erate with the local Parent Teach- 
er Associations in all schools 
where problems arise. 

3. That it is important that 
the committee have the coopera- 
tion of the Chief of Police and 
his department in developing the 
citizenship program. ' The commit- 
tee plans* to bring the matter be- 
fore the Police Commission and 
the Chief dft-^Police. 

4. That the proposed program 
be brought to the attention ot the 
jtrvenilJe authorities, j t) v e ni 1 e 
coiuls and juvenile commission- 
ers. That the juvenile authorities 
assist in the program. That the 
judges and court rooms are to be 
visited whenever it is deemed 
necessary. Cases are to be fol- 
lowed up &om the time of ar- 
rest until sentence is pronounc- 

5. In developing the program, 
coperation is already assured from 
cooperation is already a s s u red 
from certain outstanding civic 
and social agoicies. 


6. That a study be made of the 
playground situation at Jefferson 
^i^ school and that if necessary 
playground directors and custod- 
ians be assigned and instructed 
to enforce the regulations of the 
Los Angeles Board of Education. 
This is necessary because the 
tennis courts art constantly in 
use during the early hours of 
the morning; i. e. between 6 and 
9:30 a. m., also in the evening 
between 5 and 9 p. m. 

7. That the proposed program 

be submittjad to the Bureau of 
Indigent Relief of Las Angeles 
County and the iState Relief of 
Los Angeles and that the above- 
named agencies be requested to 
assist in dealing with the jb^iavi. 
or, relief and employment prob- 
lems. It is felt that the agencies' 
home visitors can develop the 
citizenship program wbOte visits 
ing individual homes. | 


8. The followng publications 
have endorsed the comhiittee's 
program and will do their utmost ' 
to publicize it: The Pittsburg 
Courier, The Los Angeles Sentin- ' 
el. The Neighborhood News, The 
News Guardian and the Califor- [ 
nia Eagle. | 

9. The Eastside Business Men's i 
League is already cognizjant of ; 
the contemplated program and • 
has promised to assist in furnish- \ 
ing full and part-time employ- 
ment. ;

Hank was penalized five rounds 
by Tcferee Arthur Donovan for

move, chairmanj Giesler stated > ™* 
that he saw .floi reason why thai

Th0 Hatch Bill May Hatch 
A Real "New Deal'\ 

Although the explosive noture of 
certain clauses in the Hatch "Clean 
Politics" bill has not yet been recog- 
nized throughout the nation, close 
inspection of the measure's dictates 
reveal some rather sensational stip- 

For Instance, Section 4 of the new 
bill mokes it a federal offense to de- 
ny employment with compensation 
or other benefits from congressional 
appropriation on account of RACE, 
creed, color or any political activity. 
Now, dear reader, if this state- 
ment does not produce a profound , 
reaction on your blood pressure, we 
sugglst that you retrace the post 
few sentences and start again. 

The vast implications of this clause 
In the Hatch bill are stunning. With 
onything like militant enforcement, 
the measure stands ready to blot but 
the tremendous and heartless racial 
discriminotion that we find on all 
Federal projects in the South and 
many in other supposedly more en- 
lightened sections of America. 

For the first time, the "New Deal" 
has given the Negro a weapon clear- 
ly and bluntly and without strings. 
ffor the first time in the past few 
' J ycbrs, a bit of Federal legislation has 
emerged from Washington which 
plc^inly recognizes discrimination 
end setSj^o specific punishment for 
the same. There can be no longer 
any doubt concerning the propriety 
of hiring and firing on a Federal pro- 
ject on. the basis -^ race. It isn't 
right, and we hOve,pn authorized 
Federal statute that soys so. 

Of course, the mere fact that the 
Hatch bill states that the practice 
of racial discrimination i^Vvery 
naughty and will be looked upon with. . 
disfavor by Federal policemen, does 
not in itself insure any change in the 
conduct of discriminatory , Federal 
projects throughout the land. 
\-. -We must oil remember another 
I honored section of American law 
'- that 'has been blatantly ignored for 
more than seventy years. We are in 
reference to Thirteenth and Four- 
teenth Amendments to the Cohsti- 
: tution of the United States. 

Over a long period. Thirteen and 
Fourteen have brightly assured Ne- 
gro citizens that they have a legal 
', right t^ all the privileges of Ameri- 
- con citizenship. Since Negroes do 
not have the privileges, it is not al- 
. ways a quieting thought that they - 
have the legal right to them. 

Many times. Thirteen and Four- 
teen have struggled valiantly to 
. make good their idealistic boasts. 
However, they ore blocked in this ef- 
fort by successive groups of gentle- 
men forming the Supreme Court of 
the U. S. — worthies who oftimes 
suffer severe attacks of illiteracy 
whep perusing Thirteen and Four- 
teen, i 

However, the Hatch bill stands as 
a much more powerful legal bludg- 
eon. First, it has not been molding 
in the Federal archives for decades 
OS have Thirteen and Fourteen. Sec- 
oi^i^U has the sanction, albeit a re- 
str^nfed one, of the Powers-That-Be. 
Third, it is so plainly stated that its 
meaning cannot be construed even 
by the gents of the Highest Tribun- 

Thus, we see that great things 
may be done with the Hatch legis- 
lation if only it is enforced with vig- 
or. And here, we run into the word 
"Responsibility". It is the responsi- 
bility of oil Negro orgonizotions to 
organize behind the iron-clod state- 
ments of the measure and fight to a 
finish. ^ 

that we hove been presented 
wonderful weapon for eco- 

nomic recognition iri the Federal em- 
ployment, we must |iot hesitate to 

use it. .. f i?;^:'#fn r. . 

The duty is equally strong in our 
local organizations as in the great 
bodies such as the Elks and the Na- 
tional Association. Most important, 
local leaders must stomp out the 
time-worn illusion that discrimina- 
tion in Federal pro^cts is restricted 
to the southern states. We must 
recognize that the vultures of preju- 
dice and segregation are as ready to 
snap at us in Los Angeles, California, 
OS they are in Decatur, Alabama. 

It is up to the Negro orgdnization, 
the Negro newspaper, the Negro 
Church, end the Negro citizen to 
moke the- Hatch bill hatch a real 
"New Deal" in the Federal employ. 

Let the People Speak 

With Danzig the pivot obout 
which the nations of the world re- 
volve and a new war threatened, Mr. 
Roosevelt takes time off to juggle 
the date of our Thanksgiving Day 

The President contends that he 
shifted the holiday date to comply 
with the wishes of merchants who 
believe, without the shift, there 
would be too much time between La- 
bor Day and Thanksgiving, and too 
little betwixt the turkey celebration 
and Christmas. 

This is all very nice and denotes a 
Presidential inclination to become 
"just buddies" with the nation's 
business interests, which have some- 
times complained about certain of 
Mr. Roosevelt's measures. It is a 
strategic moment-to develop friend- 
ship with America's mercantile kings 
if the President has on eye upon re- 
election in 1940. 

That the whole procedure rides 
roughshod over the established tra- 
ditions of the American people some- 
how did nbt come in for considera- 
tion. , 


The Elks Meet in New 
York City 

Dispatches from New York City 
reveal that the Elks' convention is 
well underway and booming along at 
record clip. 

The Elks ore the crowning confab 
in convention-crowded summer for 
New Yorkers. Doctors, lawyers, 
nurses, dentists, and representatives 
of the Church of Christ have already 
held conferences in the eastern me- 
tropolis this summer. . "^ «* 

Mayor LoGuardia, chubby and 
hospitable, has distributed more 
than a half dozen keys to the city to 
various Negro delegations; and, it is 
said, each time included a well-greas- 
ed plug for the World's Fair, which 
is not having such a happy time. 

The Elks' convention, however, is 
the biggest, loudest, most colorful 
and most ijnportant colored aggre- 
gation to settle upon Harlem this 
summer. Repxjrts state that Tues- 
day's parade was one of the great- 
est in th^ history of Little Old New 

But more significant were the sev- 
eral fine sessions reported during 
which serious problems of Afro-Am- 
erica were given full,, competent in- 
vestigation. An orgonizotion such 
OS the Elks, with its vast and diversi- 
fied membership, can accomplish 
much on the Negro's economic and 

political fron*s.K I vt it' .'^ {Ti 

It was encouroging also to hear 
from New York reports corKeming 
the mony your>g men and women 
who)(bre receiving on education thru 
support by the Elks. 

With such services, the I. B. P. 0. 
E: of W. merits the first letter of its 
title^ "V\ abfevidting "Improved", 


One of the most far-reaching 
objectives e v e r gained by oui 
group in their ceaseless struggle 
for recognition in this country, is 
the recent approval by the South 
Carolina State Department of 
Education, of the introduction of 
Negro books written by noted 
Negro authors, into- the elemeH^ 
tary grades of the State schools. 

This revolutionary, achievement 
was brought about by a daunt- 
less but little known Negro 
woman, Hilda Grayson by name, 
a school-teacher in Allendale, So. 
Carolina. Last March, during a 
session of / the Parent-Teachers 
Association, she presented such an 
admirable review of Negro prog- 
ress and achieveitieijt to the 5000 
assembled members, "that the ma. 
jority of those present were won 
over to her pomt of view; that 
of arousing early in the breasts 
of Negro children the desire to 
emulate the achievements of out- 
standing Race men and women. 

The value of this step in rela- 
tion to our Racial progress can 
hardly be over-estimated. Now- 
adays, every thinking person re- 
alizes that the early impressions 
made upon the plastic minds of 
children mold their. future modes 
of thought and action to an al- 
most unbelievable extent. Here- 
to-fore, from the very inception 
of their educational life, our 
children have been auto-suggest- 
ed with the idea of white suprem- 
acy. They study text-books writ- 
ten by whites; books which very 
naturally portray white achieve- 
ment, but never breathe a word 
about Negro achievement. 

Thus unconsciously, there is 
built up in the minds of the Negro 
child, especially among the low- 
er masses where educational 
background is lacking, a venera- 
tion for things white, which be- 
comes very apparent ih later life. 
The. following story so often re- 
lated by Prof. William Pickens 
is an excellent illustration: 

"During the late World War, 
when wages were fabulous; a 
yoimg colored lad was working 
in a steel plant in Pittsburgh* 
making fifty dollars per week. 
Every Saturday afternoon his boss 
would count him out five ten- 
dollar bills for his week's labor. 
There came one Saturday how- 
ever, when the boss was short on 
payroll money, so he gave Augus. 
tus five five-dollar bills,' and his 
personal check for the other $25., 
explaining that the sum of the 
two made up his weekly vttige 
of $50. 

Augustus .took the check and 
the byis in sUence and started 
homeward, but was far from be- 
ing satisfied about the matter. A 
few'blocks away he met a,young 
colored lad whom he knew had 
fecently graduated from college, 
knd asked him to explain to him 
about his wages. The college boy 
told him, "You've got all that's 
coming to you! Twenty-five dol- 
lars in bills, and the check for 
Twenty-five makes $50.00 in all'.' 

Augustus was just starting to 
thank him, when he happened 
to espy a white man standing on 
the opposite corner. Hastily ex- 
cusing himself, he weht over to 
the white man and related his 
wage troubles to him, while the 
colored college boy looked on 
with cynical disgust. After a few 
minutes, Augustus returned to 
his colored acquaintance and said 

'."You certainly is a smart feller 
alright. What you told me about 
that money agreed just exactly 
with what that white man said." 

This attitude of mind is reflect- 
ed'hundred of times daily in ev- 
ery city and town in the United. 
States by numerous members of 
our group in the lower ecomonic 
brackets. It is a deadly obstacle 
to group progress, economically 
as well as politically, and like the 
city of Carthage, <Klenda est. 


Ed's, note: Publication of the 
following letter in &e EAGLE 
was requeeted. 

To the Honorable Fletcheff Bow- 

ron. Mayor, i| 

Los Angeles, California, I 
Honorable Sir: 

In an article published in the 
Los Angeles "Times", this date, 
"Fireman Shortage Handicaps 
Stations" it states, 'Faied with 
the prospect that it may have 
to consolidate two of the first 
stations in the Central Ave. dis- 
trict duetto a shortage of men, 
etc.," namely stations No. 30 and 
14, please permit me to state 
my opinion on this subject. 

I understand that the Fire De- 
partment is undermanned in 
general. I also understand that 
some outlyaing stations are by 
far shorter of men than either of 
these two named and are not as 
important considering the haz- 
ards, the number of runs and 
workers, yet no mention is made 
concerning their being consol- 
idated. With these facts in m^d, 
I wish to inform you that it is 
general knowledge on this side of 
the city that the idea of Station 
No. 14 being manned by Colored 
Men was not a popular one with 
a part of the Fire Department 
when it was sg ordered and to 
m ypoor way of thinking, this 
move is a hang over of this un- 

Your Honor, if this statement 
as published is true and it is 
impossible to s^point new men 
just now and since trained fire- 
men are of such great value to 
this city in general and since an 
emergency exists why not re- 
instate some of the Colored 
Firemen who have been dis- 
charged of late years under em- 
ergency measures and let us keep 
both of these stations until the 
new eligible list is made and 
then let us have more stations? 
Trusting that you will not al- 
low either of these two stations 
to be changed. 

I remain. 
Respectfully yours, 
James C. Truitt 
Formerly Truck No. 30^. 


Dear Editor: 

In these times, when grtHjps 
and nations are demanding ^d 
fighting for the things they ^re 
entitled to, Negroes cannot af- 
ford to sit and just complain of 
the barriers that block their way 
to progress. They too, should 
fight for the things they are en- 
titled to. 

All of the problems of a group 
must be solved by that certain 
group. They may take advanta^ 
of outside .. influence, but the 
real work must be done by the 
people themselves. 

I,'per8onaily, am anxious about 
and have started, a movement to 
persuade the Los Angeles .Rail- 
way Company to employ Negroes' 
in their better jobs. 

On April 7, 1939 I interviewed 
the director of Public Relations 
of that company. However, I was 
unable to get any satisfaction 
from him; so the following let- 
ter was written by myself to the 
president of the Los Angelef 
Railway Company. ■ ^ j. j^- 

■.;.• ■' - 1 - ■/ 
Dear ?ir: 

I wish to bring to your at- 
tention that on the date of Ap- 
rU 17, 1939, I contacted Mr. 
Reeves, your director of Public 
Relations, to take up the mat- 
ter of employment of Negroes 
on the Los Angeles Bauway 
street cars, to serve in~the capac- 
ity of conductors and' motormen. 

Mr. Reeves' answer was that 
there was at least two hundred 
Negroes employed by the com- 
pany. However, upon further in- 
terrogation, they were found to 
be only in menial jobii. He stated 
[tfetat the Megroca «er» not ready 

for the better jobs, inferring, we 
presume, that they are not cap- 
able. We cannot allow the latter 
statement to go on record un- 
challeged. High school and coll- 
ege statistics would alone refute 
that statement. 

We note that you have employ- 
ed on your street-cars every race 
except the Negro. Of course, you 
understand that we do not in- 
clude the Oriental since those 
that are citizens are a very small 

We are a committee compos- 
ed of a mixed group, -which has 
been organized to secure justice 
for Negro people. 

We hope in the future that you 
Will devote a portion of your 
time to investigating the class 
of Negro men who would be 
eligible for these jobs. 

We ask for a definite appoint- 
ment to discuss this matter fur- 

Yours very truly, 
Paul Moore Jackson 

My Negro friends might be 
interested to know that my letter 
was never answered. 

I, myself, have spent much 
time thinking of the injustice 
of the whole thing; and I have 
wondered why there has not 
been more definite int*rei8it 
among our people. ^v* 

What our race can accomplish 
with unity and good leadership 
was deinonstrated when our own 
Fay Allen was elected to th^ 
Board of Education. Her campaign 
was managed by Mr. Gil|>ert 
Lindsey, president of the Los An- 
geles County (Chartered) Negro 
Democratic Club, of which I am 
a member. And to him, by the 
way, we may say that it was a 
job well done. 

I am \ery much interested in 
the street-car matter, and I hope 
to continue that interest xmtil 
1 have ot;tained results. 



Dear Editor: 

We Negroes are indeed a hum- 
ble people. We ask so little. Cf 
democracy only that a patroniz- 
ing permission be given promirt- 
ent ones of our race to "visit 
the most exclusive places" in the 
white man's wprld. 

So, in one week in Berlin, Rev. 
Clayton Russell whom I have 
heretofore considered one ef the 
most liberal and intelligent of 
our leaders, perceives that Amer- 
ican newspapers are 'full of pro- 
paganda', liars on those great 
humanitarians who worship Hit- 
ler as God, the Germans. 

Because one Negro, doubly 
consecrated, by virtue of the 
fact that he is a personage 
and an American, is accorded the 
barest courtesy, one must thrOw 
out all the evidence against Ger- 
many, accumulated of its own 
acts, in the past few years. 
, If American newspapers lie, 
perhaps the Reverend can ex- 
plain the mass suicide of Jews, 
even here in Anienca. It cannot 
be that all of Jewry suffers from 
a persecution complex and a 
mania to do away with themr 

The Reverend slams obe of 
hiis hosts in that li^d of the 
free and of the Plebiscite, by his 
statement as regards Nazi toler- 
ation of Negroes. He all but calls 
Herr Goebbels, German propa- 
ganda minister, a liar, accuaea 
him of misrepresenting the true 
feeling of German Aryans to- 
ward black non-Aryans. It was 
Goebbels, speaking for hia peo- 
ple, who took to task Mrs. Rooae- 
velt for "letting a Negress sing 
at the White House on the occas- 
ion of the British royal visit", oi 
am I wrong? 

Indignantly yours, 

By Robert Pottfrton 



Thipugh the rtileris of the Ger- 
man fttate scrupulously avoid any 
mention of it. their patented 
brand of National l^ialisra diff- 
ers bom Communism more in 
theory than in practice. Report- 
ing on his current visit to Ber- 
lin, Albion Ross, veteran foreign 
correspondent, revealed that the 
aveiiage German busmess man 
has [today coined an apt phrase 
for the economic and social sys- 
tem} imder which he lives. He 
calls it "elegante Kommunismus," 
or "Communism de luxe." His 
business is imder the absolute 
control of a state functionary. 
Though profits are still permit- 
ted — Dr. Goebbels hopes to end 
that old-fashioned custom in the 
coming years — then? size is reg- 
ulated. He must get permission 
from the State if he wants to ex- 
pand, permission if he wants to 
dec;rease his opeirations, if he 
wants to discharge any of his 
employees, permission is he wants 
to lower wages. If the state or- 
ders wages raised, he keeps sil- 
ent — Or else. He ha^ to all pur- 
poses, become a civU servant of 
the state and exists mainly to 
carry out its orders. No matter 
how you slice it, be it black or 
red, it's still communism. 



The farmers of America will 
haVe to bide a while yet before 
writing off their mortgages^ and 
debts in full. Though Uncle Sam 
h^ set aside a bigger sum for 
benefit payments to them in

one-third the produce of eight 
million farm families, legislative 
attacks ignore the fact that retail 
networks are proof of America's 
growing ability to distribute more 
efficiently. In that direction lies 
a sound cure for the farm "prob-

(coDdeBsed from Fort Worth - 

Star Telegram, white daily) 

To be elected president of the 
Baptist World Alliance for the 
next five-year period is an un- 
usual distinction. As was expect- 
ed and quite generally desired," 
honor came to Dr. J. H. Rush- 
brooke of London, who for many

Williams is a good man. high- 
ly respected and confidently 
trusted by all who knew him; 
but our enthusiastic editorial bro- 
ther was at least 100 years ahead 
of 'the times in supposing that the 
congress would elect a^ Negro, 
even one as highly respected as 
L. K. Williams. Everybody who 
really thinks knows that in this 
country and particularly the 
South, men who wish to assume 
to the fellowmen tiie Jesus at- 
titude are facing a very delicate 
task. The problem is magnified 
by extremists at both ends. A 
small coterie, .xcluding a few 
Negroes and possfo^ some white 
people, are making the situation 
difficult by clamoring for extra- 
ordinary privileges everywhere 
tar the Negro. / 

At the other end are some 
white extremists, who in their 
prejudices against the Negro tace, 
are unable to give them a square

I A few weeks ago, state po- 

I lice were called to Cranbury, 
a little borough, to investigate 
.y what they said was a raid by 
a party of white men on a 
' V shack occupied by seven color- 
J. ed potato pickers. Without of- 
fering any excuse for their act, 
the disguised mob, masquerad- 
ing under the time-worn ban- 
ner of white supremacy, enter- 
ed the mean little shack, 
smashed windows and stripped 
aJl clothing from tbeir Negro 
victims, chasing five of them 
through fields with blazing 
' The other two, a yoxing mar- 

ried couple who proved to be 
Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Treslon of 
Coleman, Ga., were taken by 
force into a car, driven seven 
miles from the place where 
they were captured. Their nude 
bodies were then smeared with 
paint and they were told "get

It appears that the only crime 
committed by the raid victims 
was that of accepting employ- 
L ment on a farm of one Ray- 
r mond Dey. owner of a potato 
t»tm on the old Trenton Road. 
To the casual traveller, es- 
pecially one identified with the 
Keicro race, rt is painful to 
note the complacency with 
which New J^ey Negroes ac- 
cept segregatAi. 

A few weeks ago. I observed 
a Umon Sunday School outing 
at segregated Atlantic High- 
land Beach. Hundreds of small 
and large children, but all of 
Sunday School age, guided by 
pastors of the different church- 
es from which they came, were 
present This beach, without 
I doubt, has served its time and 
purpose.- The Ferris Wheels, 
Shoot-the-Shoots, and other 
vehicles for the amusement of 
these children were so outmod- 
"^ ed and in such delapidated con- 
dition that death by accident 
• of some child seemed inevit- 
able. But nothing serious hap- 
. pened. 

The little ones seemed more 
than happy and greedy for the 
., meaa joy these broken-down 
; amtisements offered. 

Atlantic Beach is about fifty 

miles from Trenton, capitol of 

i New Jersey, and is reached by 

.- bus. It was once a popular re- 

, sort for general use; but, it is 

j said of late, is now used prin^ 

eipally by Negroes who are not ' 

I allowed on most other beaches. 

' The Negroes are not only 

' \ segregated at this Atlantic 

-' BeacC but are also fleeced by 

its attendants. They pay to go 

'. to the Beach. After arriving, 

i^ I they are charged 50 cents for 

m bathroom accomodations, or 

f' ten cents to go in the ocean. 

1 The Negroes of New Jersey 

i J have allowed segregation and 

,' r| discrimination to creep upon 

■ .1 them, to all appearances, with- 
"'j H out much protestation. How- 

■ , ' ever, it was noted a few days 
•:, ago that the Long Branch, New 

r Jersey branch ojf the NAACP 

and the Rev. L. Kendel Jack- 

j son. Second Baptist pastor of 

; Long Branch, headed a com- 

' \ \ , mittee on legal redress and 

I ; legislation ,to obtain for the 

i ' people of the state of New Jer- 

171 »ey their constitutional rights. 

i. L: While they are dealing partic-

the occasion of this meeting of

NEW YORK, Aug. 31— An es-^ 
timated 25,000 Negro trade uni- 
onists will be in the line of march 
of Labor Day Parades through- 
out the country, it was disclosed 
this we^ by (SlO authorities. Of 
that number, more than 5,000 wUl 
be members of the National 
Maritime Union, with headquart- 
ers in New York. 

According to Ferdinand C. 
Smith, National Vice-President 
of the NMU, one of the highest 
offices held by a member of the 
race in labor groups, and Septi- 
mus Rutherford, Secretary-Treas- 
uil^r of the Cooks and Stewards 
Division, participation of colored 
seamen in this year's demonstra- 
tion will mark a history-making 

. Reuel Stanfield, who heads the 
National Boycott Committee of 
NMU, stated, this week, that more 
than unusual interest is being 
expressed by the racial conting- 
ents in the campaign to boycott 
Standard Oil products because of 
the company's alleged anti-labor/ 

"Every contingent which mar 
ches in the Labor Day Parades 
all over the country, will carry 
banners appealing to the Ameri- 
can public, regardless of race, 
color or creed, to help uS boycott 
the products of Standard Oil," 
Stanfield declared. 

It is the belief of Rutherford 
andt his associates that more em- 
ployment would be given to Ne- 
groes aboard ships if it were not 
for the pcAicy of the concern to 
employ foreign crews assertedly 
in preference to American crews. 
^ Itemly believe ttiat our 
pe<vle will rally to this cam- 
paign 10e% when they knew 
that Standard OU only flies the 
American flaa on 65 of its fleet 
ot 19S vessi^ and prefers to 
Imild its siiipB in Geman and 
tialian shipyards to tlwt ^lip- 
yard of Ameriea where Negro 
waiters, along with other 
Americans, would be given a 
etaanee to get off the relief

Record of ' 
Reyj Price 

One of the oldest pastors in 
Los Angeles, Rev. J, W. Price has 
by an exemplary life won the 
highest respect of citizens and 
churchgoers. The following let- 
ters, one frpm Ward Chapel 
to Bishop Noah W. Williams; the 
other addressed to Rev. Price 
from a former member of his 
church, speak the convictions of 
the writers. 

1250 K 35th street 
Los Angeles, California 
Rt. Rev. Noah W. Williams, 
D. D., Presiding Bishop of the 
9th Episcopal District of the 
A M. E. Church 
Dear Bishop: 

We, the undersigned officers, 
members and friends of Ward 
Chapel AME Church, 1250 E. 25th 
street, take this method of ex- 
pressing our appreciation and de. 
sire to you for your deep sym- 
pathy and Christ-like spirit to- 
ward us in assigning by appoint- 
ment. Rev. J. W. Price as oiir 
pastor for the last two years; and 
we trust that you see fit to Jet 
him remain with us, at least "^e 

Realizing the thirty-one years 
of service that he has given the 
Church in this State, we consid- 
er ourselves highly favored to 
have such a man as the Pastor of 
our church. He has demonstrated 
his ability to lead and govern 
this, our Zion, during his pastor- 
age here; for when he came to 
us, our church was at a low ebb 
spiritually and finajjcially. 

We have increased in unity and 
fellowship among the member- 
ship and attendance at the vari- 
ous services, which has increased 
a^out 40%, particularly the eve- 
nmg service, adding 200 members 
to the church, 32 of which were 

Twenty-three years ago ke 
served as Pastor of Ward Chapel 
when only a Mission and suffered 
many hardships, but weathered 
the storm. And since it is now 
second in size, we feel that he 
would be highly honored to have 
the privilege of clearing t^e pres- 
ent church debt and burning the 
mortgage — It v/ould be the joy 
of this the oldest Pioneer in the 
point of service in the State of 

On his arrival, we were rent- 
ing. He proceeded to repair liv- 
ing quarters, moving in before 
its completion — showing that he 
was willing to make a sacrifice 
as well as the members. In so 
doing, we have saved several 
hundred dollars. 

Prior to his administration, we 
were only paying $25.00 per 
month on our indebtedness, 
which was interest only. In the 
two years that he has been here, 
we have paid $50.00 per month 
up to date, aside from our rallies. 
Delinquent taxes were paid and 
insurance on the church renew- 
ed. Class and prayer meeting at- 
tendance and finance have in- 
creased fifty per cent. Our Sun- 
day collections have increased 
and the entire bonded debt has 
been greatly reduced. 

Therefore, we sincerely request 
that you give our petition a fav- 
orable consideration.

(Excerpts from a letter to Rev. 

J. A. Price) 
Dear Rev. Price: 

May I express a few of the 
things that are in my heart? 
Simpson and I have always said 
that if we entered the ministry, 
we wanted to be like you. I have 
always admired the way you car- 
ried yourself as a minister. Even 
your jokes all had good moral 
gackground. The world today is 
in need of true leadership, such 
as you have demonstrated. 

My church is progressing nice- 
ly. Last Sunday, we celebrated 
the 62nd Anniversary of our 
church, we hardly had standing 
room in the church. 

In my closing, may I say I shall 
never forget the many happy 
days we spent together in the 
Cause of the Master. 

Yours in Christ,

Fair to Attract Southlanders T 


'" s, 



I *' -There is one place from which I'm forever receiv- 
ii^ summer news to which I've never been, . . and have 
been curious about. Still in no hurry to get to—EIsinore. 
tFhe mail brines a card from Gertrude Jones- Smith; 
fTTrudie" to most of us. . .and the information that 
^e's havn'ng a grand and rtet^ul time. So I suppose Elsi- 
jtnore is the place for one to go to enjoy resting 

Evidently John Sengestacke thought that when he 
pped into L. A. Friday via plane and went straight 
to Elsinore as guest of the junior Lucius Lomax. . . where 
Mrs. Lomax (Carmelitia Black) has been entertaining 
ii-arious friends for a week or more Among them M\t- 
tlc Picou who returns for a visit with her uncle and 
grandmother after two years in Chicago where she is 
quite a popular young woman: . . as she is here. Getting 
back to Mr. Sengestacke, he's vice-president and gen- 
eral manager of the Defender, and one of the most suc- 
iessful in journalism. Here's hoping^' he has time to let 
some of the Fourth Estaters bask in his presence. . . 
since at least a dozen have asked "Do you know where 

I can find him?" 

FrUay eveniaf, I aetUcd doim to read aa* was intrisned

OAKLAND, Aug. 31.— Dean William Pickens, 
field secretary of the Notional Association for the 
"Advancement of Colored People, with offices in New 

Tortc, on an extensive tour of 
^he Pacific Coast addressed a 
ypaclty audience of several 
ftuaiiried citizens in the auditor- 
Inm of North Oakland Baptist 
tturcb last Monday night The 
Ueture was under the auspices 
«f the Alameda County branch 
HAACP. Attorney W. A. Gor- 
don, president. Byron Rumpford, 
duirman of program, introduc- 
ed the speaker who said in part: 
"Tbte 13th amendment did not 
free the slaves . . . only lifted the 
btonier on the road toward free- 
dom, and we have been journey- 
ing that hard way ever since. 
We have not arrived at full free- 
dom and real democratic liber- 
tiM. There are other barriers on 
Ifae way, after the chains of slav- 
ery were discarded; there was 
TVcial segregation and caste; dis- 
Crsnchisement; the terrrorism of 
IgrBchiiig; the inferior education 
in sham pubUc schools; and in- 
juitice in the hands of those who 
administer laws. 


•TThe Negro is an American cit- 
faSn; that inasmuch as he came 
here 12 years after the whites, 
but stopped coming here in 1859, 
84 years ago, while most of our 
ti^tM have come heae since 
1899,— the Negro is the oldest 
American next to the American 
I&dian. He help«xi m make t]Eie 
colomal countiy m %e chief 
worker in its fields and woods; 
he helped to create the Inde- 
pendence by flghting as a Rev- 
olutionary soldier, as a "Minute 
Man" and as a productive work- 
er (tell the D. A. R.)— and he 
helped to defend it in 1814 at 
Baltimore and in 18US at New 
Orleans. According to Lincoln 
wc could not have won th-^ war 
for unwn without the Negro sol- 

"I was out of Yale for many 
yean ' before I learned that 
George Washington had nearly 
8,000 Negro troops at Yorktown, 
when" he beat Comwallis, and 
the Necro troops were on guard 
when Comwallis came forward 
to surrender." 

Pickens will go to Los Angeles 
from Oakl^d and will return 
the latter part of September to

W. K. J. — ^Where is the car? 

Ans. — The answer I find in re- 
gard to your question is that yoiir 
brother sold the car on Februtry 
13, and the car is now in the 
hands of the dealers. 

H. T. L.— Which person will 
bring me no regrets? 

Ans. — Probing into the matter, 
it seems that you are in love 
with 2 men at present and are 
unable to decide. It is impossible 
to find a person who wiU be as 
you want them to be all of the 
time, but, however, the one that 
is foremost in your mind would 
make you the best husband. 

D. F. D.— Will I find a job? 

Ans. — It comes to me that the 
people for- whom you worked 
have gone on their vacation, leav- 
ing you without employment. As 
you are the sole support of your 
family, and having a mother that 
is ill, has made it very difficult. 
You wiU find work very soon, and 
will be in a position to assume 
your responsibilities once again. 


How much brains can a girl 
have without offending the oppo- 
site sex? The "dear things" may 
have all the knowledge they wish, 
but must not permit it to govern 
their lives to the extent that it 
will spoil their love-lives. 

Women were built for love. 
Their entire existence from baby- 
hood up, is fashioned for the Art 
of Love. The intellectual woman 
tends to hurt man'e ego, there- 
fore he dodges her. As a general 
rule, he seeks the less brainy 
type that he might display his 
ability and intelligence. 

Every girl should be allowed 
to develop her potentialities, but 
not to the extent that it will de 
stroy her real purpose for exist

Dear Prof.; 

I have been doing Spiritual 
work for a few years. Upon read- 
ing your column I became inter- 
ested in your helping others. 
Thinking that this would inter- 
fere with my belief. I failed to 
write you at that time. A few 
weeks ago I wrote you and 1 am 
able to say that you have given 
me faith and aid in continuing 
my work. 

B. P. — Are my friends inten- 
tions good? 

Ans.^You have a reiil friend in 
this man, as there are only a few 
who have stuck by you in your 
troubles. His intentions are good, 
and he will prove himself a per- 
son worthy of your friendship as 
time goes on.

period of time, you will be ablg 
to manage and will not feel the'' 
effects too badly. 

A. M. — Will my husband recov- 
er his loss?

Late summer usually heralds 
the advent of a definite rise in 
the traffic fatality curve and 
motorists ase approaching a'per- 
iod of the year when there is in- 
creased need for careful driving 
according to the public safety 
department of the Automobile 
Club of Southern California. 

The general assumption is that 
the greatest number of vehicle 
deaths occur during the summer 
months, at the peak of theJravel 
season, but statistics show this 
to be a mistaken idea, states the 
safety bureau. 

From the annual low point in 
early spring ' the fatality rate 
increases but flightly until the 
end of June, when a sudden rise 
takes place. However, there is 
no slackening of the toll with the 
end of summer and the subse- 
quent decline in mUeage travel- 
ed. Rather, the trend continues 
almost steadily upward and 
reabhes its peak in December. 

By determining the number of 
mUes traveled per vehicle death 
during each month, spring and 
summer are shown to be the saf- 
est time of the year. The average 
rate for the three spring months 
is 13.0 deaths per 100,000,000 ve- 
hicle miles as compared with a 
rate of 17.8 for the four fall and 
winter months.

Brown is essentially a Califor- 
nia product, mising by a mere 
two years the distinction of be- 
ing a native son. He was born in 
Kirkwood, Missouri in 1902, and 
came to California with his fami. 
ly in 1902. His place in his fami- 
ly is unique in that he is the 
only son of the four children of 
Theodore and Lydia Brown of 
St. Louis. Missouri. Two sisters 
are deceased. The third lives in 
Ls Angeles. 

Brown attributes his interest 
and aptitpde for electricity and 
mechanics to the encouragement 
of his father. The senior Brown 
was avocationally interested in 
mechanics and bought Prentiss 
j innumerable electrical and me- 
I chanical toys which bridged the ' 
playtime activity between fathei ■ 
and son. His mother, as Brown i 
aptly puts it "was qualified to 
teach, but never taught She aid- \ 
ed gteatly, however, in my aca- 
demic training. She was known 
best as the first P.-T. A. presi- 
dent of Holmes Avenue School." 
It was at Holmes Avenue 
School that Brown received his; 
basic education. He is a grad- 
uate of Jefferson High School 
and a class' mate of the late Leon 
Whittaker. His major work was 
taken in shop, electricity and 
drafting. Following graduation 
he extended his framing in elec- 
trical sciences at Polytechnic 
high school. With his natural* 
talent for his chosen field, sup- 
ported by his formal training h« 
began his careet as electrical 
contractor in 1923 and continue^ 
' this capacity tintil 1926. 

rather lamentingly put it: "It is i 
a tough break that there have '• 
not been more -men s^'ith the 
proper trainmg and skills who i 
could take advantage of the op- 
portunities offered to them by 
our organization. Both Keys and ' 
myself are making every effort j 
-—futile to date — to discover-com- 
p^tent successors to ourselves", ' 
The most stimulating story , 
about Brown, however, took place 
in "1934. A big order for the] 
designing and engineering of a 
set of standards for a prominent | 
city was. received by the- com- 
pany. "The assistant engineer, 

he thought he could do the job. 
Here Dame Opportunity and 
Sire Preparednes met head on. 
"I can do it," stated this quiet, 
modest, but fully equipped elec- 
trician. The chief engineer said: 
"Come on, and I'll give you a 
trial." Brown did not only try 
but he delivered. He has been 
doing so since. He has continued 
to all of the designing for all 
the new or remodeled standards 
requested by the various cities 
since that tim^ This chief en- 
gineer that gave him his first 
chance was tragically killed in 
1935, but Brown has continued 
in his same capacity under the

The class singing broke, falt- 
ered, and amid suppressed gig- 
gelts, stopped.' 

■'Woodrow, you may leave the 
room, and, see me after class." 
The teacher's voice was firm. 

"Why? Don't you like my sing- 
ing?" Woodrow asked innocent- 

'This is the time for class sing. 
ijji — leave the room, please. 
T"0. K.r' Woodrow slowly 
dragged" himself out. hating to 
leave the Held to his enemy. 
He knew this was his prob- 
lem — ^how to succeed in school; 
especially in music, and yet 
fight attacks upon himself and 
all Negroes. Hadn't Martin Had-

self and his fiends? But if he 
did, what w^nild the teacliers 
think? B i 1 1 e r n e s s descend- 
ed upon him. His mind darted 
to worse defeats ahead. 
On his way home from school 
afier the interview with Miss 
Norris, Woodrow still felt lone- 
ly, discouraged and resentful. 
She had talked to him about 
overcoming his shamt; of race, ana 
abbut doing well with whatever 
ability he had. Then she had giv- 
eni him a special challenge. 

''The school Hallowe'en Carn- 
ival, Woodrow," she said, "is just 
two weeks away. There's to be 

For the rest of the week a 
great conflict continued in Wood- 
row's mind. Would he^e expell- 
ed frorh school? His father had 
been summoned to see the prin- 
cipal. The school board members 
were meeting to discuss the mat- 
ter. All the forces of the com- 
munity seemed to be against him 
— except his teachers. He had to 
believe that they were for him 
and wanted to help him. Miss 
Norris had encouraged him to 
practice his song, and now sug- ; gh- 
gested that it be sung not as a : e: 
solo but as a duet. i thel

The whole group of Negroe.

The white boys saw them coining 
and drew closer together. I One 
buttoned his coat around the ball 
and folded his arms across it. 
At the first onslaught the boy 
with the ball threw himself face 
downwards , and the contending 
parties fought over his prosjtrate 
body. Soon many were do\Mn irt 
a madly struggling heap. Martin 
and Woodrow found each other. 


At this point the tide in hisv 
affairs changed and he applijed 
for a position with the Marl>eUte

This company manufactures or-

was given the full responsibility 
for the maintenance of the elec-

automotive eqtiipment used by 
the Marbelite company in the 
manufacture of their products.

•was in MGM's "A Day- at the Cir- 
Cus," starring the four Marx 
Brothers. Without missing a day 
from the "Mikado — In Swing," he 
worked under contract to MGM 
at $100 a week. So important was 
he to the picture that on one 
week-end when a recording could 
not be completed in time to al- 
low Donald to report punctually 
for the El Capitan production, the 
recording was postponed until the 
following Monday, and the rest 
of the players dismissed. 

Among other pictures of his 
past are "St. Louis BluSsT" "Can 
This be Dixie," and "Artists and 
Models Abroad." His mother, the 
talented Anita worked in all the' 
Will Rogers pictures and was one 
of his favorite supporting play-

As everyone knows, northern 
California is unionized in all 
trades and of course, common 
sense will tell you that unless you 
can join a Union a person cannot 
exist, because there is not much 
possibility of "scabbing." I was 
told that the source of discrimi- 
natory practice originated from 
the San Francisco branch which 
dominates the small Locals with- 
in a hundred miles radius. If a 
colored musician who 1 i e s in 
'Frisco would seek to join tl.e 
white Local of that city, he would 
be referred to the Negro Branch 
in Oakland, which because of 
some unknown reason, is a sub- 
sidiary of the 'Frisco Local In 
some of the major cities, such as 
New York and Detroit, there is 
just one branch of the American 
Federation of Musicians, ha. ing 
large memberships of both color-' 
ed and white. In Sacramento, a 
certain colored swing bend had 
possibilities of playing in a num- 
ber of popular night clubs, but 
the places of business being strict-

the b4^d to be Union, but after

The presence of the no-

nationwide importance, 
the 18th onnuol Pacific 
Coast Tennis tournament 
wilLbe held this weekend^ 

and Labor Day on the Arrojo Vi- 
ejo courts at Oakland. The entry 

of Jimmie McDaniels, local __ 

youth who won the American ™ imd "Southm *teOTi"~worlds 

Jimmy Mcuoniels Copobie 
of Croshini9 'White' Tennii 


Th« newest sensation ■ frosa 
California shores returned home 
this week after successful, to say 
the least, forays into the East- 

Ten n i s association singles and 
doubles crowns at Hampton this 
month, was received by the Oak- 
land tournament committee this 

The committee is awaiting the 
possible entry also, of Mrs. Flora 
Lomax of Detroit, national worn-: 
en's queen, who has intimated she 
may participate. 

Play will get underway at 8 
o'clock Saturday morning with 
competitors expected from as far 
south as San Diego and as far 
north as Seattle, Washington. 
Drawings will be held at noon 
tomorrow at the Oakland YWCA, 
tournament headquarters. 

McDaaieb will mwt his keen- 
est competition, in defense of 
the P. C. titie, in two Pasa- 
denans, '*SUck'' Stocks, de- 
throned by McDaniels last Sep- 
tember after a 9-year reifn; 
and Jackie Robinson, Soathem 
California fhamirion. Nortliem 
California has two threats in 
Edward Toppins and "Sehool- 
boy" Mitchell. 

Reports are that Stocks, one- 
time No. 1 man at the University 
of Southern California, is in fine 
fettle and primed for a meeting 
with the only man ever to master 
him on a CaUfomia court Rob- 
inson, a comparative newcomer, 
is given an even chance of gain- 
ing the finals and meeting Mc- 
Daniels, although it is not ex- 
pected he could take the L. A. 

Paired with his brother, Al, 
McDaniels will attempt an on- 
slaught of the doubles title. The 
two vwere among many teams de- 
feated by the invincible Stocks- 
Ford (Paul) duo. Other serious 
contenders for the doubles tro- 
phy are Mitchell and Dempscy, 
(Richard); Toppins and Wilson, 
(Lionel); and Marion Wildy and 
Lefty Johnson. 

The presence fo Mis. Lonux 
woold be a boon to the otiier- 
wise drab women's competition. 
SHsB Juliette Harris, P. C. 
eh amp, will not defend her 
many-times held title, because 
of a recent illness. Mrs. Gwen 
Roberson, one time Coast 
qneen and present Southern 
Cal champ, is also temporarily 
out of competitiott. 
The South's feminine colors 
wiU be upheld by veterans Elyse 

That is, of course, Jimmy Mc- 
Daniels, local boy who went 
contrarywiae to Horace Greeley's 
advice, yet made good. 

Los Angeles has been polish- 
ing up its personal pronouns, its 
accolades of praise for weeks, 
ever since snub-nosed Jimmy be- 
gan setting the strictly segre- 
gated teraiia world on fire. It's 
been "OUR Jimmy with a BRILL- 
IANT future" smce the youth 
started last Spring to raise the 
level of Negro tennis. 

It is significant that the nat- 
ional champion is "from Calif- 
ornia", in the press raves, rath- 
er than "of California". With 
characteristic nearsightedness, we 
let him drift around here for a 
year after high school gradua- 
tion. Ralph Metcalfe, scouting 
for Xavief university down in 
New Orleans, snapped him up. 


Lanky, sun-burned McDaniels 
rose from obscurity to the top 
of Negro tennis in less than a 
year. And there are no flies on 
that statement Negroes play bet- 
ter tennis, dispite jim crow 
competition, than they do either 
golf or footbalL Young and tal- 
ented, McDaniels has the stuff 
in him to become a top^notcher 
in the lily-white game, if given 
the chance. 

At Hampton, Va., two weeks 
ago where the most fashionable, 
polite and proper sport fans you 
ever want to see, gathered for 
the 23rd annual Nationals, Jim- 
my carried off three cups, the 
n a t i nal and intercollegiate 
singles and the national doubles. 

Wilson's Hot 
Leather ^ 
'Cools' Cool 

The crackling fists of Jackie 
Wilson, the sensational young 
kayo artist, seared the sheet- 
white features of Eddie Cool of 
Philadelphia, at the Olympic au- 
ditorium Tuesday night and Cool 
withstood the effects of the hot 
leather up to the end of the fourth 
round, being counted out by ref- 
eree Jack Kennedy just as the 
bell rang. 

Cool was Wilson's eighth con- 
secutive knockout victim. Boast- 
ing an impressive record in east- 
em rings. Cool looked out of 
condition as he squared off 
against Wilson. 

The weaving taictics of the 
easterner bothered .Wilson ijj. the 
first three rounds, being unable 
to connect solidly with one of 
his whistling right hands. In the 
fourth canto, however, Wilson 
maneuvered Cool into a comer 
and poured cooling leather on 
Cool and when he backed up, 
Cool fell — definitely cooL 

Wilson came in the ring at 
137 Vi; Cool two pounds heavier.

and joy. Dr. Reginald Weir. The 
first occasion had been the New 
York open a few weeks previous. 

Jimmy had lots of praise for 
Weir's tennis, and well he might. 
The handsome doctor, playing 
for New York U, came pretty 
near to crashing big-time circles 
some years ago. McDaniels said 
he beat Weir by keeping him on 
the run. Because Weir makes 
"nice placements" and hits the 
ball "on the rise", it would never 
have done to let him "get set".

play together so much that Coh- 
en knows McDaniels' game. 

Out of ten tournaments play- 
ed this season, the former Man- 
ual Arts High student has lost 
two. Rain, which takes frequent 
advantage of that Southern hos- 
pitality to "drop in anytime", 
beat him in both instances. The 
occasions were the Prairie View 
Open, with Lloyd Scott winning 
and the North Carolina Open, 
Chris Hunt victor. 

With the exception of grass, 
Mae* says he has played on every 
kind of court tnere is, clay, grav-

are either gravel or clay. Here 
they are cement and up North, 

If he gets by the Pacific Coast's 
offering in this week-end's 
tournament at Oakland, Mc Dan- 
iels faces a blank wall^ There 
won't be anyone else to beat. 
For the man who is still going 
up, that's a serious situation. 

How far McDaniels will go in 
tennis depends as much on the 
fuss raised to break down bar- 
riers in "white" tennis, as on his 
own ability. 

Last March ihe EAGLE car- 
ried a story about McDaniels and

may use this type of standard, 
utilizing the more economical 
sodium vapor lamp, in lieu of 
other standards featuring inca- 
descent lighting. And recently 
an order of 220 re-designed 
standards were shipped to Hono-

need for a rounded out vocation-

of the piano encouraged Wood-

Norris, catching a glimpse of his 
face and sensing .what was in 
his mind, serit Larry to him, say- 
ing, '3ring him on, Larry, whei 
I give the signal, just as we've 

At last it came, and beside 
Larry in his Sharecropper's cos- 
tume Woodrow took his pose as 
his mother had shown him, and, 
bent and trembling, shuffled to 
the center of the stage — a per- 
fect representation of an aged 
Ne^ cotton-picker with his long 
white bag trailing behind. Ap- 
plause thundered through the 
building, then quieted at the 
soiind of the piano, and the boys 
faced the audience, Woodrow's 
hands fiercely grasping his bag 
to steady them. The notes of the 
song they were to sing sounded 
to calm and reassure him. His 
voice came clear and true: 

"Gone are the days when my 
he«t was yoting and gay," but he 
was glad of Larry's confident 
support on: 

1 liear tliaae angel voieeo 
calling— Old blaai Joe." 

Woodrow never knew how he 
escaped from the stage to a seat 
beside his mother at the back ,of 
the auditorium. He came to him- 
self when Mr. Woods, the princi- 
pal, rose to announce the award- 
ing of the prizes. Mr. WxkkIs 
spoke first of the difficulty the 
judges had experienced in mak- 
ing decisions among so many. 
There were three prizes for the 
girls and three for the boys who 
had taken part. Woodrow didn't 
listen to the awarding of the 
girls' prizes, but his ear caught 
the principal's words again as he 
said, 'TThe third prize for boys 
is awarded to Manuel Ortez for 
his Mexican costume and his in- 
strumental music; the second to 
Mike Sullivan for his American 
hobo costume and his Irish clog 
dance; and the first prize, the 
judges and the audience agree,

In Time of War-Scare 

In time of wqr scares, the British 
jblic automatically turns its gaze 
x)n the editorial columns of The 
)ndon Times. Opinions once gor- 
sred from this source, public opin- 
n forms with solid English fervor. 
Although there is no legitimate 
jplicate in the American press for 
ich an influential editorial column, 
e closest approximate to it in Arn- 
ica may be found, appropriately 
lOugh, in The New York Times. 
.Over a period of many years, The 
mes has distinguished itself as be- 
g very nearly void of 'bull' — 'bull' 
ing o commodity very heavily uti- 
ed by most other American journ- 
i. Thus, The New York Times has 
aduoted into a realm of rare joum- 
istic trust in the United States, 
ice the paper can be depended up- 
not to spout pious defenses of de- 
x:racy during each crisis, and since 
does employ a fine group of "for- 
jn affairs experts". The New York 
mes' editorial columns become in- 
-esting, if not significant, just now. 
Hence, we quote from the editor- 
columns of The Times of lost Sun- 
y, the edition for which the publi- 
tion's weightiest opinions ore re- 
We quote : 

"The various 'surveys' of public 
linion undertaken in recent years 
ive obvious shortcomings. No mot- 
r how honest, careful or disinter- 
red they may be, they can ques- 
)n only 'representative samples' of 
9 population, and there is always 
e possibility that a sample may 
ove to be accurately representb- 
^e. The answers they obtain de- 
nd very greatly upon the precise 
rm in which a question is asked, 
ten a question is asked before , 
despreod public discussion has hod 
I opportunity to clarify its implico- 
>ns, and after this discussion oc- 
irs, public opinion will sometimes 
ift. (The surveys of popular opih- 
T showed an increasing majority 
loinst the President's Supreme 
>urt plan, for example, as the pub- 
: debate proceeded.) Finally, there 
always likely to be a considerable 
terotion in opinion when people are 
ced, not with a question based or 
vaguely hypothetical future situo- 
>n, but with such a situation in all 
I immediate actuality. 

"Yet these opinion surveys, for all 
eir shortcomings, are probably the 
ist guide we have on some ques- 
jns to the attitude of our people. 
Tiat they show regarding the Am- 
icon attitude in the event of a mo- 
r war in Europe is extremely inter- 
ting. When the Gallup survey 
Jthin the lost few weeks asked: 'If 
>gland and France hove a war with 
srmony and Italy, do you think the 
nited States ^ill be drawn in?' — 
iree persons in four with opinions 
iciored that they did think the 
nited States would be drown in. 
I^ne-fourth of those interviewed 
3d no definite opinion.) As com- 
jred with the 76 per cent, in this 
test survey, who thought that the 
ni4^ed States would be drawn In, 
niy 57 per cent thought so in Janu- 
ry of this year and only 38 per cent 
K>ught so in January of 1937. 

iThis change in opinion undoubt- 
dly reflects in large port a harden-, 
ig attitude toward Germany since! 
ie Munich settlement, as well as o 
rowing belief that our own destiny 
ould be involved in the outcome of 
jch a wor. Asked why they thought 
le United States would be drowri ifi; 
Tose interviewed In the Gallup sur- 
ey gove three chief reasons: (1) 
unertcan sympathies with Great Brl- 
ain ond France, and disapproval of 
h^f^i^nd Foscist regimes. (2) 

American commercial ties With Bri- 
tain and France. (3) Feor of a de- 
. feat for 'the dempcrocies'. Of those 
who think we would eventually be 
'drawn in', however, only five per- 
sons think that we would send troops 
abroad to help England and France 
to eight who think that we would 
send war materials but no troops. 
Previous surveys hove shown that 
less than a fifth of bur people feel 
that we ought to send troops abroad 
to fight in q European war. 

"An interesting supplement to 
these results comes from the Fortune 
survey. In this less than 20 per cent 
of those asked felt that there ore 
'any international questions affect- 
ing the United States so important 
to us in the long run that our Govern- 
ment should, take a stand on them 
now, even at the risk of our getting 
into war". In reply to the question 
whether, if France and England go 
to war against the dictator nations, 
we should 'send our army and navy 
abroad to help them", only 3 per 
cent of those asked thought we 
should do so immediately, 25 per 
cent thought we should do so 'only 
if it is clear they are losing', 66 per 
cent thought we should not do so at 
all, and only a small remnant of 6 
Of 7 per cent was undecided. Yet 
asked: "Do you think we should con- 
tinue to trade with the dictator na- 
tions if they declare war against oth- 
er notions?' less than iS per cent 
thought we should, 21 per cent were 
undecided, and 61 per cent definite- 
ly thought we should not. 

"These replies, as well as other 
indications, point to certoin incon- 
sistencies in the recent popular Am- 
erican attitude on these grove ques- 
tions (which may since have been 
greatly affected by the events of the 
lost week). There are evidently a 
large number of our citizens who 
think they con eat their coke and 
hove it too. They want very strong- 
ly to 'keep America out of war', and 
yet they seem willing to take steps 
that would be a clear violation of 
neutrality. They wont us to send 
France and England supplies and 
munitions, and to boycott the dicta- 
tor nations, while remaining strictly 
at peace. Some of them, no doubt/ 
believe that this could be done in ef- 
fect though not in form, as a mere 
result of the probobility that Eng- 
land will be in complete command 
of the seas. But others seem to be- 
lieve that we could be officially par- 
tisan in our actions and still remain 
at peace; or that it would be entirely 
within our own control to involve 
ourselves to a certain predetermin- 
ed extent and no farther; and oil this 

is much more doubtful. 

"No doubt it is altogether unlike- 
ly ..that Americans, today any more 
tlion in 1914, will conform to Wood- 
row Wilson's counsel to be 'neutral 
in thoug^t as well as in action'. But 
whatever course we adopt, we must 
at least consider carefully the impli- 
cations of our words and acts. We 
cannot choose irreconcilable cours- 
es. We must ask where each of our 
steps is leading. The issue of neu- 
trality or participation must be de- 
cided by clear-headed choice, not by 
inadvertence or misapprehension"

r[OU(ffi NOIHING succeeds 
like success, it's a rare suc- 
cess that doesn't brinf forth a 
Doubting Thomas to challenge 

As a case in point. Doubting 
Thomas has attacked advertising, 
but the evidence continues to 
roM up against him. 

First, the Brookings 'Institute, 
in. an exhaustive study, supplied 
names, dates, and figures of how 
advertising, far f-om increasing 
the costs of the goods Mrs, House- 
wife buys, not only' reduces 
price, but stimulates production, 
creates jobs, and is a healthy 
factor in our economic life. 

Next, a newly completed sur- 
vey of America's network food 
stores, which operate on the prin. 
ciple of low-cost turnover, re- 
veals them as one of the country's 
most faithful users of advertis- 
ing. Yet the cost item chalked 
up to advertising in their bud- 
gets actually results in lower 
prices to the customer by reason 
of increased demand. "This sur- 
vey gives- further answer to the 
"why" of advertising, but it also 
supplies a clue to the "where" 
of advertising. For every dollar 
spent by these retail groups for 
radio time 10 dollars went to 
newspaper advertising. 

That the local newspaper is 
the community's best salesman 
and buying aounselor finds addi- 
tional prtN^in a door-to-door 
check up iWently 'conducted in 
several cities by the University 
of Chicago's^ School of Business. 
It found the home-town news- 
paper outranking in effectiveness 
all other mediums. 

Though the vanishing Indian 
has been rapidly taking on the 
whiteman's ways, one word he 
refuses to understand is "vanish, 
I The coppery-skinned Ameri- 
j can is, in fact, increasing num- 
ber at greater pace than are his 
' white brothers. Dr. James G. 
] Townsend, medical director of 
I the Indian Service, reports that 
I the Indian population in the Uni- 
I ted States is gaining at the rate 
I of 8 per thousand compared to 
' a rate of S.8 per thousand in the 
; white population.' 
] It has only been within com- 
! paratively recent years that the 
I redskinned Americans have be- 
gun staging their comeback. In 
the year Columbus first touched 
the shores of the New World 
the Indian population was 846,- 
000 according to recent estimates. 
But the scourges of war, fam- 
ine, and disease, so decimated 
their ranks during the following 
centuries that their ranks had 
fallen to 294,547 by 1865. Since 
then, however, the "-lanishing 
American" has been in need of 
a new name. With a present pop- 
ulation of 342,497, and a birth 
rate promising no dearth of 
bright-eyed papooses in the fu- 
ture, Indians at least don't have 
to learn the meaning of "vanish- 
ing". They won't need it-

The Jesus Revolution "failed" 
and the Jerusalem Reaction

in its old way. 

Like most things talked about 
over-much, the actual Jerusalem 
is one thing and the oft-described 
Jerusalem quite another.

That is about the best thing 
that can be said for this city 
which has been on the side of thr

church just about to every few

Monday is Labor DayJ ': I!? 
- Members of the labor unions will 
parade the streets of the citi« of 
the United States. It is the labor- 
er's day. The world is more conscious of the 
power of Labor today than ever before. Yet it 
is nothing new, this power of Labor. ' 

More than 1900 years' ago, the Great Teacher 
dropped a few quiet words on the ears of his. 
listeners. To the audience of that day, laborers 
oppressed by the burdens of Oieir tasks tiiey 
could rot understand. 

Monday, when those laborers march rather 
defiantly "up and down the streets of the cities 
of the United States, meth inks the echoes of 
that voice vnU come down nineteen hundred 
years . . . "And whosoever will be chief among 
you, let him be -your servant".

The click of the turnstiles in 
the San Francisco Bay region 
ought to give economists more 
ammunition for proving the mer- 
its of the low cost — large turn- 
over principle. 

The Fair on Treasure Island 
has pulled itself out of the red 
into the black for the last two 
months by staging a host of spec- 
tacular shows and supplying en- 
tertainment by some of the nat- 
ions' leading dance orchestras,

The Bay Bridge by paring its 
toll to 40 cents a few weeks ago 
found its cash registers had tak- 
en in $466,771 during the month 
of July. That it was a 21 per ceiit 
better showing than last ear's 
July recorded. 

Undoubtedly, the parade of 
visitors to the Fair helped ac- 
count for a goodly number of 
th»s 1,093,502 cars — a record-set- 
ting figure — which used the 
bridge last inpnth, but it will be 
surprising irthat 20 per cent re-

is a principle that works. 

In all the lively hub-bub over 
Thanksgiving Day, in which 
TJovember 23 celebrants find 
themselves pitted against' adher- 
ents of November 30. two things 
seem to have been overlooked. 
One is poor Tom Turkey. After 
dutifully fattening himself, 
month in and month out he's go- 
ing to get in the neck, anyway,, 
regardless of how traditionalists 
and innovators settle the matter. 
And second, is the meaning of 
Thanksgiving Day. Didn't the 
Pilgrim Fathers set it aside as a 
day of thanks? Surely there' need 
be no moratorium on a day of 
'Thanksgiving. Celebrants who 
honor November 23 can undoubt- 
edly find something to be thank- 
ful ioTJt week later. Let them 
join in- thanksgiving with those 
who celebrate November 30, and 
vice versa. In this land of the 
free it would be regrettable if 
we have to have an edict before 
we can give thanks. Why not 
celebrate todayf ) 

as struttmg and game as they 
come. Peter could not have help- 
ed hearing such a cock as that. ' 
It were funny, were it not so 
tragic to note how many millions i 
are spent here on fine, empty 
churches. I passed by the Germ- 
an Protestant church, a very 
expensive structure.

the Holy City. 

The Abyssinians, for inst^ce,. 
have great investments here in 
"religious" properties. And yet 
all these religious groups and in- 
dividuals, together and severally 
are thoroughly indifferent to im- 
possible burdens which women 
and children must carry about 
in the city and the dirt and filth 
to which all the people of the 
city are exposed. 

It was with such brutal reli- 
gious piety that Jesus had his 
quarrel. And these present thous. 
ands of observers of ritual are 
descendants of those who con- 
demned Jesus to death. 

Jerusalem might well be char- 
acterized by three things: dirt and 
flies; graves, preachers! 

Concerning the first, I might 
add a few items to those already 
hinted at I doubt that God knows 
how many flies there ax^ in this 
holy city! The number is impos- 
sible to determine. 

Then too, everybody is an arch- 
aeologist here in Jerusalem. It is 
hard to imagine how much mess 
is preserved here in the name of 


Easily the most characteristic 
feature of Jerusalem is its graves. 
The city was on old burial ground 
in the time of Jesus. Since that 
time thousands of graves have 
either been dug from rock or 
hewn within and without the 
city, so that more space is taken 
Up with graves than with habi- 
tation itself. 

In times of plagues, deep, wide 
holes were dug in the earth and 
countless bodies were t'nrown in- 
to the depths in heaps. 

There lives here a woman who, 
several years ago, brought her 
husband here to die and be buri- 
ed. In the cemeteries one sees any 
number of similar cases. 

What I iutve said about 
preachers and "religious" peo- 
ples generally here ought snf- 
flee to give an idea of what 
pests they are and how they 
belie the true meaning of Chris- 
tianity and the message of Jes-
