BY C. A. B. 

LAST Wednesday evening aft- 
er putting the Eagle to bed 
1 cniniple4 up in the rear end of 
a stage coach suid went to San 

I believt it was 11:45 P .M. 
when the bus laftLos Angeles. 
It was high noon wnen we reach- 
ed San Francisco. 

Since the trip was strictly a 
business one, we found accomo- 
dation at the C. J. Walker Home, 
2066 Pine Street. The Walker 
Home is operated principally for 
the accomodation of working 
girls. In 1919, a group of wo- 
men in Saji Francisco organized 
a business, literary, and social 
club, with Mrs. Irene B. Rug- 
gles. president. They gave to this 
Club the name of that outstand- 
ing character among colored 
women, Mme. C. J. Walker. 

After doing much charitable 
work among the churches and in 
the community, the desire was 
born to do something more con- 
crete, and Mrs. Mildred Dennis 
conceived the idea of a home for 
the non-family giii Who come* 
to San FrancJseo in search of em- 
ployment in order that a mantle 
of protection and Christian in- 
fluence might be thrown around 
her until she bectomes acquaint- 
ed and can look out for herself. 
In 1921, under the leadership 
of that fearless and tireless work- 
er. Mrs. Tulip Jones, who now 
for nine years has been president 
of the club, the dream of Mrs. 
Dennis and her co-workers was 
realized and the Mme. C. J. 
Walker Home was opened aftei" 
untold labor and sacrifice on the 
part of these women, their hus- 
bands and friends. 

In 1923, the Home became an 
agency of the Community Chest, 
and the last of the debt was paid. 
Mrs. Margaret C. Roberts, Su- 
perintendent of the home is away 
on a much needed rest and vaca- 
tion at present, and "Mother' 
Dennis, widow of the late pas- 
tor of 3rd Baptist Church of San 
Francisco is in charge. 

It had ben about twetny years 
since I had seen this gentle little 
lady: hence *he renewing of ac- 
quaintance furnished a happy 
occasion for both, of us. 

The weather in the northern 

city, in every respect, surpassed 

my ' fondest expectations. I ex- 

-picted fog and clouds, instead I 

had sunshine and warmth. 

A little basking in the very 
clean and highly cultured atmos- 
phere of the Walker Home cli- 
maxed my first brief rest period. 
A face wash and a little dabbing 
of the powder puff, to take off 
the shine, and I was away to 
San Quentin, my real destina- 
tion. But-don't get me wrong- 
not to stay; just to visit a young 

On the ocean route from ban 
Francisco to San Quentin one 
must pass Alcatraz, that island 
prison, home of the Al Capone 
breed of U. S. criminal. 'The 
Rock" »*« not neglected m the 
making by Mother Nature, nor 
has the government stinted in 
expense or pains in making it 
impregnable. There on the 
bosum of the ocean, its grey, 
somber walls reach upward to- 
ward the blue sky, and at its 
foot a slate-grey sea stretches 
out of sight. But soon Alcatraz 
is lost in the distance, and the 
painting fery boat moves on to 
.SafcBaphael, another beautiful 
iSanS^prison site. We reached 
San Quentin in time to watch 
the men in prison uniform go 
back on their- .daily job routme 
• after lunch. Except in a lew 
cases ,they seemed cheerful. 

I understand that there are 

upwards of 5000 prisoners at San 

{ ' Quentin. and of this number

seemed to be bunched together.

The Garfield school has long 
been a bone of contention with 
the colored citizenry of Sa^nta 
Monica. It embraces none of the 
vaunted , exaggerated principles 
another Negro weekly would 
have the public believe. 

The writer of the article in

migrant, was taken in by the 
superficial courtesy, extended 
him by teachers of the school 
when he visited it several months

Brunson is president of the club. 
Rev. A. K. Quinn is pastor.

for the enormous death toll of

John Hamilton 
Speaks at Expo 

DBTROIT, May 16 — John Ham- 
ilton, chairman of the Republi- 
, can National Committee, spoke 
at the Negro Progress Exposition 
here Monday evening. The Re- 
publican chieftain warmly con- 
gratulated the promoters of the 
Exposition upon their enterprise 
and ingenuity, and referred to 
the unquenchable spirit o fthe 
colored people of the United 
States who made this Progress 
Exposition pouible. 

Chairman Hamilton referred tc 
the tangible evidences of Negro 
progress in Educatu>n, Art, Sci- 
ence, Industry, Religion, Agri- 
culture and Citizenship in evi- 
dence at the Exposition, and re- 
ferred to it "as a coordinated en- 
terprise proving that the Negro 
has not been unworthy of his 
freedom and citiaenshjp." 

News, was reported here this 
week to have been over Negro 
education. Gov. Johnson, long- 
time enemy of Editor Sullen s, 
objected to an editorial in Sul- 
len's paper, blasting the adminis- 
tration for lack of support given 
Alcorn A. and M. college. 

It is reported the governor 
struck the journalist from behind 
with a walking cane, whereupon 
Sullens is alleged to have turned 
on Governor Johnson, snatched 
his glasses off and pummeled

Martin said.

Oweni foUows: 

"My attention has been called 
to the fact that sometime Satur- 
day night. Mar. 30, 1940, and as 
it happened, while I was absent 
from Oie city, approximately 20 
pervons. dressed in the regalia 
of the Ku Klux Klan marched^ or 
walked in some sort of informal 
procession along certain of the 
public thoroughfares of down- 
town Los Angeles. I am informed 
that the persons involved formed 
their procession on the Los An- 
geles City Hall steps and -that 
they distributed KKK propagan- 
da leaflets along their fine of 
march. i 

"In this connection 1 ieam that 
it is being- rumoret" in certain 
quarters not only that I am sym- 
pathetic to the KKK but also that 
I am a member of the organi- 
zation. It aeems inconceivable 
that anyone would believe such 
stories. Nevertheless, I wish to 
spilte them at. once for they are 
as Vicious and malicious as they 
ar*sill^ and absurd. The truth is 
tMlit I am not a member of the 
Kii Klux Klaiyl have never been 
a member. As far as 1 am aware, 
none of my friends, acquaintanc- 
es or associates are members. I 
know nothing whatev.T about 
the management or personnel of 
the procession to which I have 
referred and I had nothing what- 
ever to do with it. Besides, I be- 
lieve that I have proved, or ft 
least tried to prove, by word aiM 
deed that I yield to no man in the 
desire to guard and preserve the 
civil liberties and constitutional 
rights of all our people, regard- 
• less of race, or color or creed. 
These liberties and these rights 
are of the very essence of our 
democacy and should be revered 
as sacred things in our America. 
They belong to all American citi- 
zens, regardless of whether we 
may or may not agree with the 
objects and purposes of those in- 
dividuals or groups of individu- 
als who seek to exercise the free- 
dom of speech and action guaran- 
teed by the Bill of Rights. This 
necessarily includes the members 
of the KKK as well as those 
against whom the members of 
this or any other organization 
may be directing its efforts.

were at honie informally to a large number of friends, at 
their place. Few things artistic more entertaining than 
the versatile Antoines displaying their abilities of which 
Aey have quite a few. Haiti is always a fascinating sub- 
ject, and M'sieur Antoine more than knows all about it. 
He's vastly interesting. . . From 'roimd noon on thru til 
:way late Sunday, Dr. Curtis King's spacious and eye- 
filling place in Watts was thronged with countless peo-

pool, movies, a jam session, a gabfest in front of the fire- 
place, with folk coming and going. Really all right! Cur-

formal. . . 

As beforementioned, loyely Theltna Price got off

all of us got thru. Cross section: The Atty. Ivan Johnson 
III, Kay Wilson and Dr. Johnny Robinson, Ruth Elling- 
ton, the Hamptons, the Leon Grants, Bca de Vaughn, Dr. 
Andy King, with others who came in later. Delia Mac- 
Donald looked in on the festive board, too. ^d Mrs. Har-

It was a tired and weary 
group of Alpha Kappa Alpha 
sorors that trekked homeward 
late last Friday nicht after the 
initiation of Betfy Yarbro, Cor- 
rine Jones and Mildred Light- 
ner, who likewise departed for [leaving 
home in the best of spirits. 

For this particular ceremony, 
the regular procedure was aug- 
mented by "numerous other rit- 
uals" concocted in the fertile 
brains ftf Cora ?eth Tucker, 
Hortense Ellis, Martha Waugh, 
Vi Aldridge and our ball and 
•chain— in an effort to break the 
spirit of the said initiates who 
were possessed of "sterner 
stuff" and took evAy thing in 
stride without the slightest em- 
barrassment. The "slightly 
warm" sorors then proceeded to 
apply the paddle, as a last re- 
sort, only to be forced to termi- 
nate due to exhaustion and had 
to be carried home. 

Sufficient recovery allowfed 
them to fete the new, sorors with 
a sumptuous dinner at the 
Clark hostelry last Sat eve.

It is particularly beneficial to 
the woman of middle ^es who 
is beginnihg to set \vrlnkles about

The treatment is also good for 
the younger woman with dry

forms a splendid basis for the re-

119-year, old African Methodist-

Unification of all branches of

they would have a members-hip 
nearing 2,000,000 in 12,000 church

— to see such an aspirant but-

worldly and un-Christian me-

imagkie Jesus running up and 
down Palestine with a sign on 
His back reading; 'Elect Me

If we remember our history 
correctly, he who would drink 
of this fountain would have 
eternal youth. If we did not 
know that de Leon's quest was 
fruitless we would swear that 
Bill Robinson, .the dancer, had 
drunk the fountain dry. We 
saw the "world's greatest tap 
dancer" the other day as he 
watched gasoline station at-

for all his 60 some odd years, 
he looks no more than a man

flight for Work Benefi 




Carrying forward! its fight 
secure, re&yed houi^s, over- time 
pay, and vacations with pay for 
dining car workers, the (Nation- 
al) Joint Council of Dining Car 
Employes Unions is pressing ne- 
gotiations for new contract agree- 
ments on all the nation's major 
railroad lines. Announcement of 
the program was made today by 
Locals 465 and 582 through John 
E. Hargrove, District Chairipan, 
and Douslas De 'Valughn, Presi- 
dent, respectively. ' 

Faced- with conceirte|d vopposi- 
tion to demands madp in pew 
contract agreements, the Join t 
Council has referred cases irifh 
20 eastern and middle-western 
roads to the National Mediation 
Board for settlement. Similar re- 
ferral of cases with other lines 
will be made if scheduled pre- 
liminary conferences between 
carrier and union representatives 
are npt successful. 

joint handling of all contract 
negotiations is sought as a means 
of assuring uniform conditions 
for dining car workers nationally. 
Such joint handling will be pos- 
sible because of the organized 
imity of the Joint Council, whose 
affiliated local upions represent 
the large majority of dining car 

Initial victory in the Joint 
Council's efforts to bring dining 
car employes under the mini- 
mum wage provisions of the 
Federal Wages-Hours Law, came 
with announcement last week of 
the hourly wage minimum recom- 
mendations of the Railroad In- 
dustry Board. The Ronrd's 
i-ecommendations to the Wage- 
Hour Administrator aske<l for 
minimums of 36 cents per hour 
for dining car employes on Class 
1 (major) lines, and 33 eent5^r 
hour for those on branch lints. 
Locally, employes of ths Union 
Pacific, Southern Pacific! and 
Santa Fe lines will be affected.

United Artists 
Holds '20 
Mule Team' 

During the filming of "20 Mule 
Team" a camera followed a team 
of 20 mules four miles, reloading 
with film every mile, for tba 
longest continuous "perambi^ia- 
tor" or moving scene in the his- 
tory of the motion picture indijs- 

This occurred at Death Valley, 
where Wallace Berry and Metro- , 
Goldwyn-M a y e r's "2 Mult | 
Team" company worked On loca- 
tion in the lowest spot below I 
sea level in North America. The 
picture is now playing at the 
United Artists theatre, 9th and 
Broadway. Downtown L. A. The I 
cameras, on cars with special I 
wheels to negotiate the desert I 
sands, proceeded ahead of the! 
borax wagon drawn by mules. At I 
one side, out of camera range,! 
was a trt;ck with an improvised] 
darkroom in Which film maga- 
zines could be loaded and kept I 
from the intense desert light.] 
Each magazine was carried by I 
the camera for a mile, when an-l 
other was loaded. Cameramanl 
Clyde De Yinna declared this tol 
be the lohgest piece of continu«l 
ous fi^n action in history, a to-l 
tal of *000 feat of negative be-| 
ing exposed for it. « 

An additional highlight of the| 
filming of "20 Mule Team" 
the fact that after more than| 
40 years of service xhe Tono-

Out of commission, carrying

ly the least obnoxious. However, M-G-W's iscreen

This time Dr. Kildare solves^ 
a depp seated psychological mys- 
tery, bringing a maa back to 
sanity by administerinlg a drug 
which "mentally takes [him thru 
all the stages of evolution." That 
one's pretty thin, but [it is for-,

Ni^withstanding the glamour, 
Miss Ellington is definite^ on the 
"bright" side. She's anticipating 
her master's in biology this year. 
By the time the degree's a reaU- 
ty, she will have decided between 
teaching and medicine, i^efer- 
ably surgery, as a career.

This Ruth Ellington is not the 
Ruth Ellington of musical ^ame. 
That mystery is at iast de^red 
up. There is such a gal. however, 
and ifs an odd coincidence. 

Duke's the only professional 
musician in a musical family. He's 
being pusiied for the distinction,, 
however, by his son, Mercer, who 
gets in some "hot liciu" with a 
band on the side of studies at 
Jnlliard. School of Music in New 

Roth was in a hurry to get 
away from ttie subject of self 
and rvve on about Edward Ken- 
nedy Ellingtwi ... the Duke to 
you, so she tossed in a couple 
more items briefly. They were: 

The most exciting thing that 
has happened to me yet was four

I trieti to squelch him with the 
cold reminder that he had refer- 
ence to psychology. Anyway, I 
told him, we had disposed of bi- 
ology anid were talking of Duke. 
Whereupon, he wanted to know 
HOW you could dispose of Bi- 

Ruth settled the argument by 
reminding us t^at she hadn't 
known Duke when be was a 
youngster. She said, however, that 
her parents had recalled he 
showed no particular fondness for 
music imtil he was weU along in 
his 'teens. It wasn't until he be- 
gan making money, playing at 
dances and the like, in and about 
Washington where they were 
reared, that he decided to make 
it his life work. 

We wondered. if had tiiat in- 
terest been awakened earlier, 
would he have turned to so-called 
"serious" music. 

Ruth thought not. 

"Despite the definite influence 

of tlte dassics in his music, both 

. in his composing and playing. I 

don't think he's a frustrated 

classical musician. 

"He likes to be known as an 
exponent of unadulterated Negro 
music. Fm sure he considers jazz 
(ni can it that lor want of a 
better word) ... a musical idiom 
of comparative value to 'serious*

War Mongers March 

With German victories sweeping 
the attention of U. S. readers, lost 
week sow the most determined war- 
mongering extant on our shores since 
1917. ! 

President! Roosevelt led the hys- 
teria with ah instant demand of an- 
other billion dollars for "defense pur- 
poses". This is in addition to his 
former special request for two bil- 
lion. In speech before representa- 
tives of South American nations, he 
belabored, the invasion of neutral 
nations and pledged America to the 
support of "civilization" and of "hu- 
man rights". 

In Colorodo, a Republican polit[- 
cion focused notional ottentiort up- 
on himself by proclaiming that "this 
is no time to deal with domestic is- 
sues. We must wait until the for- 
eign situotton is in control before we 
turn our attention to home matters. 
ROOSEVELT, regardless of politics!" 

A bill was introduced in the Cali- 
fornia legislature to outlaw oil "Fifth 
Column" organizations — Fascist 
and Communist — which ore 
"treasonably" working for the de- 
struction of "American principles". 

Here we have the three major developments 
which presage all war criaes: (1) hysterical 
military expansion; (2) minimizing of domestic 
problems; (3) accusations of treason. 

They compose a vicious trio which react ve- 
nomously uponlth* average citisen. . He is pro- 
pagandized into I a war he does not understand, 
probably in a foreign nation ^domestic problems' 
confronting himself and his family are ignored; 
and his right jto protest is denied under the 
charge of "trei^n". 

The threat to the American citizen today is a 
real one, of Immediate importance to every 
man, woman and child in^ the nation. The opst 
of indifflerKice to public affairs at a time like

One of America's greatest re- 
porters has gone with the oaaa- 
mg of Webb MiUer. It wiwa 
strange irony of Fate that sent 
this celebrated correspondent to 
Ilia death in a London raUway 
station — a man who had covered 
(our major wars and whose zest 
lor adventure had crammed into 
liif 48 years more excitement 
than an average man encounters 
in ten lifetimes. Despite his oft- 
prafesaed desire to withdraw 
from newspaper worit and seek 
a- life of quiet contentment in 
the New England countryside, 
the call of great events was some- 
thing he could not resist For a 
quarter of a century you could 
count on finding him on the 
newnaper newsfronts of the 
world, where his uncommon 
skill and devotion to his craft 
well earned him the tribute the 
world has paid him: He was a 
great reporter! 

The American mother for 1940 
—69 year old Mrs. Charles H. 
Mayo who reared eight children 
of her own and an adopted 
daughter and foster son— has no 
formula for beeing a successful 
mother. But the silver-haired 
widow of the world-famed sur- 
geon does have posKive views 
on what things are most prec- 
ious and worthwhile in life. One 
of them is not keeping up with 
the Joneses, or putting material 
wants always first. For she ."»ve, 
"If it were a question of having 
a baby or a new car, I would ad- 
vise a young couple to have the 
baby. I'd take the baby first 
every time and go in a wheel- 
barrow!" Children, she believes, 
are worth great sacrifices. As the 
s4ccessful mother of ten she 
knows whereof she speaks! May- 
be, as she hints, we tend "to 
place too much emphasis on stan- 
dards of living and not enough 
on the values of living. Her 
words, at least, are something 
for young couples to ponder 

California's wares can once 
more go down to the sea in ships! 
After months of anxious entreaty 
the cry of the Pacific Coast, "We 
want ships!" has moved the 
House of Representatives to take 
steps to supply them. A measi re 
it has just passed, tuthorizing 
the Maritime Commission to sell 
or charter ships to domestic op- 
erators, will put into service 
nearly 100 vessels. This is a ma- 
jor victory of California and oth- 
er Pacific Coast states. Hundreds 
of thousands of dollars worth 
of goods, already bought and 
paid for have stood landboimd 
for want of ships to carry them 
to the Atlantic seaboard. Tempt- 
ed, due to the war, by more prof- 
itable routes elsewhere, or sold 
to foreign countries, the number 
of ships customarily plying the 
inter-coastal routes has dropped 
by 22 per cent The needless 
hardship thus inflicted on the in- 
dustry and agriculture of the 
West will now be speedily re- 
medied. Thanks to the action of 
the House and the Maritime 
Commiaion. California's prod- 
ucts can once more find sea 
routes East

Pbr instance, when e^plamt Is 
made of continued unemploy- 
ment, and of the low estate of tlie 
victims of cruel dqdoitotion m 
the South, and in aaaae of the ur- 
ban, industrial centers, reply is 
made that, "during the past year 
I some one million and naif men 
and womoi have bem taken off 
WPA rolls and placed bpek m 
private indtistry". 

Pleasant news tliis is, remarks 
The Boston Chronicle, "as far as 
it goes. But for some peoi^ it 
doesn't go very far. The state- 
ment doesn t indicate, for o n e

people taken back under the 
wings of busines were colored 
people. We serioui^ doubt that 
the stotement COULD be ntads. 
The industries which have led to 
this reemployment have largely 
been those whose doors were 
never more than craciced to Ne- 
iCroes, and since the business col- 
lapse of 1929 have been firmly 
shut. For a million and a hatf 
people to go back to work to 
these industries, therefore, does 
little, if anything, to dtange the 

picture of Negro employment" 

Also, appreciably little has been 
done to relieve the pli^t of the 
Negro fto-mer de^ite the huge 
ftims of money spent by the De- 
partment of Agriculture, the Tri- 
ple A, Farm Security, and many 
other alphabetical divisions of thie

Local racial prejudices have ef- 
fectually intervened to deny him 
even a small proportion of t h e 
beoefits to which he is entitled

Department itself. 

This has conspired to drive 
Negro families from the farms 
and country life into highly com- 
plex city life. The descending 
ladder has carried many, if aot 
most of than, from modest farm 
ownership to the share-cropper- 
tenant relationship, and, finally, 
to being a dependent laborer at 
wages so low as to be a disgrace 
to "^e ridiest country on the

Dhu' Editor: 

Let's not be buildcn would 
well have been the subject of the 
article printed last week (May 
1) in the editorial of the Pasa* 
>%splement of the Califor* 
nia EagR. Why try to destroy the 
musical talent of our yoong peo- 
plfe? Why should only one church 
in Pasadena have an orchestra? 

If the writer of that article 
eould answer those questions 
with intelligence, I doubt if he 
^er sh« would have writtoi it 

As a matter of fact, everyone 
knows that there are only two 
colored orchectras in Pasadena, 
tint of Scotts Chapel and First] 
AME. If a true that Scott's start- 
ad two years ago and First 
Church only six months ago. No, 
«rc don't have sufficient violins 
to balance our orchestra, but we 
idfO have real talent in iriut we 

WfajT should wa ctMnpel or 
force the young people of our 
church to leave home or ao else- 
^ere when they could be used 
•t home? If s the ■uaas. as a mothr 
cr putting har child out of her 
-^me' for sonwaee else to take 

care of. 

We take thia article as a.alam 
and insult on the young pao^ 
of First church and its membera. 

As to orchestraitis hmderi^ 
race people from being employ- 
ed as city policemen, fir^en, 
etc. why mix cheap politics 
with ch;m:h activities. iTke au- 
thor and his kind are the real 
cause of out race citiems not se- 
curing such positions. ..;. 

Instead of fighting youh§ peo- 
ple in chiircfa ordtestrsuB, why 
don't you go down and fight the 
cause of that young race gvl that 
a low-down white man nearly 
killed? Why don't you uphold 
the decency of your ovn race 
women and girls? ■ 

Yes. builders is what we need ! 
and the sooner you learn thi^ { 
what race ours will be! 

I say, young people use your 
talents, join any orchestra you 
choose, why not support your 
church? rd like to see an or- 
chestra in every church in our

Can this prevail every Sunday? 
Would it be too much of a strain

Let this be your motto f^m

at all times, is better than a great 
amount at one time.

ing still" in mind, the subject* of 
the Mothers' Day sermon, preachr 
ed at Scott Methodist church by- 
Rev. Karl E. Downs, pastor, last 
Sunday, was 'Taith of Our Moth^ 
ers." The text was "There stood 
hy the cross of Jesus, his moth 
er." -,;■•■ I . . 

The following expressions oi 
Rev. Downs chosen at randon^ 
throughout his discourse, each 
being a sermon in itself, are: 
"The tenderest note on the key- 
board of the human heart is 
mother. Everybody's mother is 
a remarkable woman, and there 
is nothing in the world today 
like the influence of a Christian 
mother." t 

As a challenged to mothers, the 
pastor said, "The thing that kept 
you going was a praying motlief. 
We tell of what mother tised to 
do but the yoait'.i follow the 
t>'ings that they aee the old fiv 

■Our youth have been betray(

never was an irregularity that 
could not honestly be explained. 

In 1920, Dodge received the 
following letter from a federal 

. "Mr. Dodge, you don't know 
me. I saw your name in a news-^ 
'^per, and for some reason it ap- 
plied to Aie. Therefore, I am 
taking the liberty to ask if you 
would be interested in a young 
man serving a life sentence in 
the federal penitentiary, and is 
innocent. Signed: Corporal Harry t 
B. Ivy." • » 1 

To this strange request. Dodge 
replied that if the particulars of 
the case caused him to feel that | 
the man was innocent, he would 1 
gladly do anything he could to I 
help. him. ., - j 

Subsequent corresj Vidence re-t

he enlisted in the World War in \ 
New York City: went to France,] 
was promoted to corporal, and' 
at the time of the alleged offense 
was eligible for a higher promo- 
tion. While on duty with a squad 
of men. he was accused of carnal 
knowledge with Isabelle No^eret, 
a known lewd woman. Tried by 
court martial m France, he* was 
found guilty and sentenced to be 
shot. Later, it was discovered that 
the evidence at the trial was in- 
sufficient to justify the death 
penalty. A second trial had the 
same ending. This was true of 
still a third trial. Finally, he wm

MRS. MARTHA T^ staged a 
one-woman blitzkreig up- 
on sister Republicans of Cali- 
fornia at precisely 1:30 o'clock 
Tuesday afternoon during a 
hmcheon at the Wilshire bowL 
Tile senator's a ttr acti v e 
spouse probably is the most im- 
portant female event in politics 
since the birth of Mrs. Roose- 
velt's "My Day". Mrs. Taft, of 
average buDd and appearance 
has a dynamic fire about her 
that is inunensely attractive. 
But there is no hint of "brassi- 
ness" or forwardness in her ap- 
proach; rather she gives an im- 
pression of vibrant sincerity ex- 
pressed with modesty. 

The story of Mrs. Taft's en- 
trance into her husband's presi- 
dential campaign is an interest- 
ing one and was recently relat- 
ed by Drew Pearson and Robert 
S. Allen of the *^ashingt4Xi 
- JtTfpp8in Itot.thn.jnod sena- 
tor has become provoked now 
and anon by the travels and ex- 
ploits of Mrs. Eleanor Roose- 
velt To Taft, she symbolizes 
the nauseous notion of pownal 
government — the reign of 
"Roosevelt charm". Thus, Sen- 
fetor Taft, although realizing 
that his wife was a potential 
asset of vast importance, decid- 
ed against injecting "any El- 
eanor stuff into his preadent- 
ial effort. This despite the fact 
that the Tafts had toured CHiio 
on many occasions as "Bob and 
Martha". The senator was only 
dissuaded after his managers 
had pmnted out the closeness of 
the GOP race and the urgent 
necessity of using every aaMt 

It is fortunate that Mr. Taft 
finally relented. His wife is 
. worth her weight in compreased 
ballot boxes. 

One of the salient points of 
Mrs. Taft's address was her ad- 
monition to the makers of GOP 
policy, "Don't try to out prom- 
ise the Democrats". The speak- 
er further stated that because 
of the present critical conditions, 
governmental disputes must be 
handled with bald honesty. 

On the vital war .issue, Mrs. 
Taft is explicit She deplores 
over-emphasis upon the affairs 
of EiuDpe and warns that "head- 
lines make us forget bread- 
lines". That the foreign situa- 
tkwlf being used to camouflage 
fact»rf. almost fraudulent waste 
was charged. Quoting figures, 
Mrs. Taft said that ei^t billion 
dollars already have been spent 
within the past few years for 
army and navy purposes. "Ei^t 
billion dollars," she declared, 
and now we find there is equip- 
ment for only 75,000 American 

Advocating strong deflense 
measures, Mrs. Taft qualified 
her position by voicing her "un- 
bending opposition" to the sac- 
rifice of U. S. lads upon the al- 
tar of European war. Further 
analyzing **tfae mystery of eight 
billion dollars", Mrs. Taft tanx- 
fully accused the administra- 
tion of spending for power and 
propaganda rather than the na- 
tion's general welfare. 

Indeed, Mrs. Taft said a great 
deal more and said it very welL 
However, the important fact 
ataout her is that she repreaorts 
a oew type of Kepablican- wo- 
manheod. At last the GOP has 
produFed a woman capable of 
viein* with Mn. Rooaevelt. Hie 
wife it a presidential candidate, 
Mrs. Taft yet has a Teraonality 
and a message of her own.

All Phases of 
USHA Proorant 

WASHINGTON, May 23v— Hie 
United States Housing Authority 
has developed new and sotmd 
racial policies which depart from 
the lainez faire practice of many 
governmental agendas. Dr. RoIk 
ert C. Weaver, special assistant 
to the USHA Administrator, as- 
sarts in an article on 'Hacial 
Policy in Public Housing" pub- 
lished in the current issue of 
Phylon, Atlanta University (juar- 
terly review. 

"The public housing pronam 
in the United SUtes," Dr. Wea- 
ver points out, "has sought to ex- 
pand the Negro's Share in its 
developnvent, evolving a racial 
policy sifnificant for governmen- 
tal activities and full of impli- 
cations for American demoiira- 

Instead of neglecting the Ne- 
gro altogether or tnakmg special 
provisions fot him, the USHA 
has sought to integrate him into 
all phases of- the public housing 
program, the writer declares. As 
an integral part ai the program, 
Negroes share responsibility for 
the initiation, development and 
operation of low-rent housing 
projects. Dr. Weaver said.

In order to receive the honors

Bog Chorge 

CHICAGO, May 23.— Resulting 
from a new agreement with the 
United Transport Service Em- 
ployees of America, red caps of 
the Chicago and North Western 
railroad, this week, instituted a 
pooling and distribution of all 
mcome received under tlie 10c 
bag charge placed upon passen- 
gers by the railroads. 

Under the new agreement with 
the Union, the minimum of 30c 
an hours will be paid from the 
general fund, and the remainder 
will be distributed equally among 
all red cap employees on the 
basis of hours worked. Captains 
and mailment were increased to 
a 40c hourly minimum, which 
additional 10c is to be paid out 
of other company reserve. Also 
luder the new Agreement, these 
preferred jobs were bulletined 
and^filled in on the basis of sen- 

The first agreement under the 
new lOr bag charge, imion 
spokesmen stated that the "pool- 
ing and distribution" system re- 
moved the immediate danger of 
the railroad company using the 
10c bag charge and the 30c xnini- 
"iimi to lower income standards. 
Intensive competition and fav- 
oritism, an old traditional evil 
among rsd caps, has been great-

on Tuberculin 
Test Results 

Slightly more than 21 per cent 
of tije students who were tuber- 
culin tested in 17 Los Angeles 
junior and senior high schools 
during this school year were 
found to have taken uie germs of 
tuberculosis into their bodies, ac- 
cording to a report made public 
today by Herbert I. Sauer, Direc- 
tor of Social Studies of the Los 
Angeles Tuberculosis and Health 

"This does not mean, .however, 
that all these students have ac- 
tual disease", Sauer pointed out 
"While the taking and interpret- 
ing of X-rays for these schools 
has not been completed, previous 
experience indicates mat the 
number of tuberculosif cases 
probably will not exceed 64 or 
one in 250. 

"Apparently there still remain 
many narents.and students who 
are not interested in the pro- 
gram we carry on in connection 
with the Board of Education, the 
Parent-Teacher Association and 
the WPA", declared Mt^ Sauer. 
"There was a totel enrollment of 
24,773 students in the IT* sdteols 
studied, but only 16,628 ot sli^tly 
more than 67 per cent requested 
the test although it was offered

9 Products from 
White Potato 

DETROIT, May 23-^Inspired 
by the miracles performed by Dr. 
George Washington Carver with 
the sweet poteto, Isaac Jones, 
36-year old Detroit cosmetic 
salesman, has gotten 9 products 
out of the white poteto. 

The nine are: coal, coke, per- 
fume, glue, liquid and powder- 
ed; brown and black dye and pot- 
tery. They are on displajy at the 
Negro Progress Exposition here. 

Jones says he has hsd no for-

to our nationi are imminmt under 
these drcumstances. 

Bom since the World War of 
1914-i918, in which we partici- 
pated, with the Declaration of 
war by the Congrea of tha Uni- 
ted, States on April 6, 1917. they 
are victims of poverty, disti«*s

The American Coalitton, an or- 
ganization of more than 100 pa- 
motic and civic organizatkms, 
recentiy issued a document 
whidi indicates how far along 
the road of national bankruptcy 
our coivitry has gone; our poli- 
tical, social and industrial struc- 
ture seems on the way to a com- 
plete breakdown. 

Whereas on December 31, 1930, 
the National Debt had been re- 
duced approximately $16,000,- 
000,000, a per capita of $130 for 
each inhabitant of the United 
States, the National Debt has 
gone up to more than $42,000,- 
000,000 wih a per capita of $320 
th|t is, $190 higher for each of us 
ihin it was all during the years 
of the so-called Old DeaL 

iUl of this is indicative, not 
of .recovery, but of aometaing 
that must be called by another 
name; futility and almost com- 
plete failure are probably betto' 

.The conditions referred to 
have come about by reason at 
certain pertinent facts known to 
men and women who take the 
trouble to acquaitn themselves 
wih this realistic ad depressing 
situation, and the end does not 
seem to be in sight

L«sli« Gorland Boiling of Richmond, Va., 
Comos in for ConsidorabU Mention 

A Negro artist from Richmond, Va. — Leslie 
Garland Boiling — has just come in for considerable 
tnention in a book on "Design ond Figure Carving" 

by B. J. Tangerman. 

Boiling's regular work is that 
of a porter in Richmond. For a 
number of years he has been 
whittling . in his spare time and 
his productions have been shown 
in a niiinber of exhibitions. It 
was at a showing in the galleries 
of William D. Cox, New York, in 
1937 that Tangerman, author of 
the book, was first attracted to 
Boiling's productions. 

Boiling's work is listed in Tan- 
german's book under the head- 
ing of 'Tolk Carving-H u m a n 
Figures". Most of the work which 
Boiling has done has been of the 
type of people with whom every- 
one is acquainted — the housewife 
a» she goes about her week's 
Work day by day— washing, iron- 
ing cleaning, baking, etc.; the 
mailman, the redcap and the 
preacher. On page 241 of his 
book Tangerman speaks of Boiling 
as foUows: 

"LeaH» Garland Boiling, Ne- 
gro shipping clerk of Richmond, 
Va., is one of the few whittlers 
who has received artistic recog- 
nition in his field. Using only the 
jacknife, he has produced such 
interesting figures as the reclin- 
ing figure . , . the exceUent 
"Redcap" . . . and the dories 
Figs. 1119 to 1126. Although he 
studied at Hampton Institute 
briefly, he has had no formal 
art training. Yet he has whittled 
many amazingly beautiful sub- 
jects covering the life and sur- 
roundings of his native rural 
community, and the resulting 
self development of his natural 
talent has won the acclaim of 
critics. He has aimed for artistic 
quality rather an commercial 
remuneration, and has succeeded 
in expressing more spirit and ac- 
tion than is usual in whittled 


"His technique is the same as 
that I have described so often 
before — squaring up a block of 
wood, drawing on two adjacent 
faces the front and side views of 
the fi^re to be carved, sawing 
it out with a scroll saw, and com- 
pleting the modeling with his 
jackknife. Here, incidentally, is 
proof that no elaborate tools are 
required, for Boiling has only a 
furnished room containing, in ad- 
dition to the usual bed, bureau, 
and chairs, a desk with a vise 
and his scroll saw. The rest of his 
tools he carries in his pocket. 

"Through the courtesy of the 
Harmon Foundation, an organi- 
zation founded to foster ciuture 
among the colored people, I am 
able to show a number of exam- 
ples of Boiling's work, probab- 
flr the most interesting being the 
series representing the days of the 
week, shown in Figs. 1119 to 1123, 
1125 and 1126. They include 'Par- 
ton on Sunday' catching the min- 
ister at the moment of vehement 
discourse, leaning over his pul-- 
pit to emphasize a point . . . ; 
•Aunt Monday' at the washtub . . ; 

• "Sister Tuesday' doing the iron- 
ing . » . ; "Mama on Wednesday' 
doing the mending . . . ; "Gossip 
op "niursday" . . . over the back 
fence . . . ; 'Cousin on Friday' 
scrubbing the floor . . . ; .'Copking 
on Saturday' showing the turkey 
being put in the oven and I^ts 

• and kettles on top of the stove . . 
, "The 'Redcap" . . is one Of Mr. 

.. Boiling's more recent fi,<?ures 
■ <made in 1937) and shows tre- 
mendous improvement Another 
SBore ambitious figure is 'The 
. Workman' . . . Praise from such 
■rtistt as Carl Van Vechten has 
Aided Mr. Boiling in having a 
one-man show at the Richmond 
Academy of AH in 1935; exhib- 
its at the National Negro E;chibi- 
tlon in the Smithsonian Insti- 
tute, Washington, D. C. in 1933; 
at the CoOege Art Association, 
1933; at the Virginia Artists Ex- 
' hibition, 1934; at the Richmond 
Artists' Exhibition, 1934; ft tiie 
New Jersey State Museum in 
1935; and several exhibiUona 
sponsored by the Harmon Foim- 
„, dation both ji*New York and in; 
K travellnf shows. It is particu- 
B-^larly noteworthy that Mt Boi- 
ling haa secured all thi.' recogni- 
tion without catering to thifr conr 
temporary belief that sculpture, 
whether in wood, stone ot metal. 

^must be completely rounded off 
and sanded until the tool marks 
are lost. Further, he goes back 
to the Greek precedents in col- 
oring his figures slightly to em- 
phasize center of interest." 

The book is illustrated through- 
out and 10 of Boiling's produc- 
tions are shown.

In the arrangement of memo- 
rials, a thorough understanding 
of various types of insurance 
policies is becoming more and 
more necessary, J. L. Hill, man- 
ager of Angelus Funeral Home,

to Bring It 

Thomas E. Dewey, candidate for 
the Republican nomination for 
President, believes that under a 
changed administration lat Wash-, 
ington, colored soIdi«t8 and sail- 
ors ia the nation's armed forces- 
can be enabled to fill the posi- 
tions in those forces to which 
they are entitled by qualification. 

During his recent Western tour 
he frequently stated bis position 
on the general War situation as it 
affects America and I the neces- 
sity of keeping the nation out of 
war. During an injterview at 
Omaha, Neb. last month he was 
asked, questioned by | State Sen- 
ator John Adams, on: the Negro 
angle of the U. S. peice army. , 

Do you believe it possible to 
take prejudice out of the United 
States Army and give the youth 
of our group an opportunity to 
join the Army and Navy and be 
placed in position they are quali- 
fied to fill without being turned 
down . on account bf color?" 
Dewey answered immediately: 

"Yes, I believe it could be 


Enlarging upon his war posi- 
tion during his visit to Louisville 
recently, Dewey spojce as fol- 

"There should be no question 
whether we shall joLi the wars 
abroad. Tlie American people 
have made up their minds on that 
issue. We wiu always fight in de- 
fense of our own stores. We will 
oppose threats of foreign powers 
against this hemisphsrie. That has 
been our stand for 117 years un- 
der the Monroe Doctrine. But we 
are determined that n6 American 
forces shall ever again be sent 
to fight in Europe." 

A long fight has been waged 
by NIegro Organizations and news- 
ppares insisting. that Segregation 
be removed from the] Army and 
Navy forces which defend these 
shores. Mr. Dewey's announced 
stand against racial discrimina- 
tion in general, is the only stand 
taken by any candidate. 

Speeches made by J Francis E. 
Rivers of New York, Dewey's 
aide in the Prosecutor's office, 
contain open attacks on the reduc- 
tion to labor battalions^of famous 
Negro soldier units. Rivers has 
repeatedly said: 

The Federal government 
shows that it prefers la segrelgat- 
ed status for the Negro; consider 
the segregated CCC jcamps and 
the fact that the Negro regular 
army regiments have been chang- 
ed Rom fighting to labor tmits."

gpvemment has "for 7' years been 
controlled by prophets of despair 
. . . has fumbled with unemploy- 
ment and economic want", has a 
sequel in the" fate of the Ameri- 
can Negro during thfese same 7 
years, claims Francis E. Rivers, 
Dewey's aide. Rivers j listed some 
of the disadvantages which he 
says the Negro has buffered unr 
der the New Deal in these "7 
lean years". They ar^: 

1. The New Deal introduced 
the system of using the govern- 
ment to enforce sej^gation of 
the Negro. T 

2. "The New Dea^ segregated 
the Negro but of America's pro- 
ductive life and provided for him 
a separate relief economy which 
was without a futuite. 

3. When the so-called objec- 
tives of the New Deal are at 
stake; the elemental needs of the 
Negro to get work inust be sacri- 
ficed and he is told in effect that 
when he gets relief] he is impu- 
dent to ask for anything more. 

rh re- 
iskve in 

4. PWA, WPA and 
fuse to hire Negroes 
menial capacities. • \ 

5. The New Deal deni* to the 
Nejpx) any opportunity ih fthe per- 
manent Civil Servciei iof the 
United States. I 

6. The New Deal uises its 
great powers to make ghettos for 
Negroes' in the form of 
ed low-cost housing pro;' 
the Home Awners' Loan 
tion refuses to sell houi 
groes in "white" residen 




to Ne- 

1 areas. 

7. A prominent Neiw Dealer 
said: "That the Negrojjis tem- 
peramentally unfitted tpr work- 
ing in industry «nd that there- 
fore it might be better to put all 
Negroes on reservatiorti". 

8. "Fhis creation for jthe Negro 
of a lower caste by ' goVemment 
decree and govemmeritj conduct 
is actually the dark^^^ period 
through which the Negi^o has toil- 
ed since emancipation. \ 

9. The New Deal hsis created

Tills Terse from the Psalms, "My 
■ool longetb,.yea, even falnteth for 
the courts of the Lord: my heart 
and my flesh crieth out for the Ut- 
lag Qod," is the Qolden Text In the 
Lesson-Sermon on "Soul and Bodj" 
on Sunday in all Churches of 
Cbrist. Scientist. 

Among the Bible citations are 
these words of Jesus from Mat 
thew: •Therefore I say unto you 
Take no thought for your life, what 
ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; 
nor yet for your body, what ye 
•hail put on. Is not the life more 
than meat and the body than rai- 
ment T Behold the fowls^of the air: 
for they sow not neither do they 
reap, nor gather into bams; yet 
your hearenly Father feedeth them 
Are ye not much better than they? 
. . . And why take ye thought for 
raiment? Consider the Uliea of the 
field, how they grow; they toil not 
neither do they spin: And yet I say 
unto you. That even Solomon in all 
his glory was not arrayed like one 
of these. . . . Therefore take no 
thonght, saying. What aball we eat! 
or. What shall we drink T or. Where- 
withal shall we be clothed! ... for 
your hearenly Father knoweth that 
ye have need of all these things." 
' A passage from "Science and 
Health with Key to the Scriptures" 
by Mary Baker Eddy, presents the 
•tatement: "When understandlifg 
changes the standpoints of life and 
intelligence from a material to a 
■pirttoal basis, we shall gain the 
reality of Life, the control of Soul 
over sense, and we shall perceive 
Christianity, or Truth, in its divine

all races, cliosses and denomina-

hour of prayei-^for peace. There 
will also be special numbers. 

God in Christ. Several speaking 
dates have been arranged for 
Mrs. I4osby and Miss Gwynn. 

No pains has been spared to 
make the sermon on Thursday 
evening nhe most outstanding 
event of its kind ever presented 
in Los Angeles. '<

Moaea. Her life began in Abing- 
ton, Virginia as the second of 
■even children bom to Mr. >^tch- 
ell Moses and his wife, Adeline. 

Miss Moses' childhooa was 
■pent with her brothers and sis-

parents, where her religious 
teaining began. She was grad- 
uated from Hampton Institute

the schools of Virginia and West

Sles, California in 1915 and he- 
me active members of Wesley 
Church. Especially, did MiM 
Valerie enter into the life of the. 
church, and the community. 

God had entrusted to her many 
talents which she used freely in 
His service. Many people in musi- 
cal circles knew her because ot 
her serviire in song, but she also 
labored cheerfully in every de- 

gartment of the church; pulpit,

Bible class .finance committee, 
unit supervisor. Aid No. 2 and 
the choir. 

WVienever there was a special 
obeervance, a rally or a friendly 
contest of any kind we aU knew 
that Miss Mo«es would be found 
in the front ranks. She had great

|v^He:«iMa iftin* .*i;i^ eaaa amid 
Auitiiiiia and beaiityt,! have been 
'Mapted to comment on Dude 
Ranchec, knowln, to many as 
Guest Ranches, ttd to explain 
why UlSey 8» into <&e ^a^eit to 
build such wonderful resold 

First let's look .up the mean- 
tog of "Dude".* According to 
.Webster,— "A kind^ of iwndy 
(itaracterized by ojwr affected- 
ness in dress, manners, etc" A 
thide Ranch:— To viiit a Dude 
Ranch you would have overalls, 
whdch is strictly western; riding 
habit, for you would surely con- 
template riding; slacks and 
heavy shoes for hiking or pos- 
sibly a weiner bake or steak fry 
in the. rocks by fires, for which 
you would gather the brush 
yourself, in the evening under 
the star-lit skies that you find 
only in the Desert; shorts that 
give your body a chance to take 
m the benefit of the Sun's rays 
while you play tennis, ctochet, 
horse-shoes, softbaU, basketball, 
badminton, or the many other 
games a Dude Randi affords; 
bathing suit for swimming in 
the private pool, filled from the 
vrell on the Ranch which is pure 
mineral health building water 
that has an invigorating effect 
upon the external as well as the 
internal body; lounging pajamas 
for relaxation in the evening 
when you wish to lounge around 
on screen-porches or on yard 
coudies under shade trees or 
Ground the swimming pooL You 
might want to ride 5 miles away 
where there are stores to supply 
your Wants . to the smallest de- 
gree, so you would bring a smart 
sports dress, suit 6r some very 
smart: shorts because we wear 
very few clothes in the JJesert,- 

How long would you stay. You 
would not come to a Dude Ranch 
for a day for One reason: they 
are far removed fyom the husth 
and bustle of the city noise and 
secondly, you go to such places 
to avoid crowds and the incon- 
veniences at near-by resorts. You 
go to the Dude Ranches for the 
relaxation that everyone should 
feel obligated to give their toil- 
worn bodies and minds whether 
menlhl or physical at least once 
a year, so you would stay a week, 
maybe two weeks and never less 
than a week-end. 

Dude Ranches do not wish tp, 
nor do they try to run in oppo- 
sition to your city restaurants 
and grills, because in order to 
do that they should be situated 
so as to command a constant «v 

maida to relieve you of all house' 
bold cares. i ' : /' - 

Dude Ranches have i only lim- 
ited acoomodationa audi as their 
usual amount of patronage Mil 
afford, to in order to aacure com- 
fortable quartera audi aa you 
would desire, reaervatkoa must

Ea,stside Residents wll point to

Today's opening will be in the 
nature of a Preview for the fam- 
ilies of this Community, with 
bright lights, .gay crowds, cele- 
brities and spairkling music as a 
background for the brilliant de- 
dication ceremonies. The festiv- 
ities wil contii^ue today, tomor- 
row and Saturday between nine 
in the momink and nine each 
night, and eachf^nd every visitor, 
young and old jalike, wm be pre- 
sented with a souvenir gift with 
the compliments of Gold's. 

Morris Gold, the founder of 
this ever-expanding establish- 
ment was receiving the congrat- 
ulations this week, of the entire 
city, and Eastside bu&iess and 
civic leaders in parti(hilar. For 
although the beautiful new cloth- 
ing store addition, which now 
gives this firm an entire block- 
long building, was constructed 
in answer to the countless re- 
quests of Eastside residents for 
a Clothing Store for their shop- 
ping convenience, nevertheless, 
Mr. Gold Is being lauded for his 
foresight ingenuity and courage 
in venturing so large an under- 
taking, and particularly because 
tthis complete establishment 
iwhich is virtually a department 
Istore, is so complimentary to the 
{District and its families. 

"By this action," sUted Geo- 
rge A. Beavers, Vice-President 
of the Golden State Insurance 
Company, while extending con- 
Igratulations to the firm, "Mr. 
Gold shows a sincere desire to 
^nder increasing service to the 
doramiinity from whic}i his pat- 
ronage comes, in spiHt with his 
many civic and personal contri- 
butions towards the welfare of 
our people." 'I 

It was pointed ;out that Gold's 
have always beeii the leaders in 
the development of the business 
iBStitutjons of our community. 
Jt was one of the first firms in 
the district to su^wrt our Negro 
Newqmpets with ^ge scale 
Display Advertising. It was one 
of the first to give employment 
to Negroes in virtually every de- 
partment of the store, including 
Sales departments Sjnd --iinport- 
ant office positions, jy'-' 

It pioneered the use of Radio 
as a means of entertaining and 
enlightening our families, with 
what is now acknowledged as tbe 
outstanding All-Ne^ Radio 
Program' in Anienc4, •especially 
desjgnied for the Negro poptila-

At Universal — In "A Modem

Butler's funeral were made by 
Mrs. Charlotta A. Bass, Editor- 
publisher of the California 
Eagle. In part she said: "I am 
present because I feel that away 
in the spirit land, Sara Butler 
wishes me to be here. I shall nev- 
er forget- when she first came 
her, how she laid her little head 
with its soft black hair on my 
shoulder and asked 'won't you 
be my mother, I have no mother." 
I promised that I would, and so 
all along the steps of her remark- 
able progress, she has always re- 
peated that ordination, dedica- 
tion, or whatever ceremony it 
might be, that she desired my 
presence, and I have always kept 
my promise. She was unselfish, 
intelligent, conscientious, devot- 
ed to her work and tp mankind. 
Who knows but that her part of 
the work was finished at the re- 
cent dedication of this beautiful 
structure? But she is not dead, 
her work and, her achievements 
still live, for you, her congrega- 
tion to carry on. She was more 
than a woman, she was a charact- 
er, and some of us never become

'Scarlett O'Hara' 
Mow Seen as 
Ballet Dancer 

One of the most memorable ro- 
mances ever written for the stage, 
Robert E. Sherwood's "Waterloo 
Bridge" has been made into a 
timely and tender love story, 
starring Vivien Leigh and Robt. 
Taylor, and now playing at the 
United Artists theatre, 9th and I 
Broadway, Downtown Los An- 1 

teles. With its vital and exciting i 
ackground of London of the war 
years, 1017 and 1940, the story is 
woven around a ballet dancer 
and an aristocratic young British 
officer, who meet on the historic 
Waterloo Bridge during an air 
raid and seek slielter in the Wat- 
erloo underground.. They realize 
that they are in love almost at 
first sifijit and their whirlwind 
courtship is telescoped into 24- 
hours happiness. But before they 
can l)e married, he is called back 
to the front. Later she reads his 
name among tlie dead and life 
fails to hold anything for her. 
Their almost miraculous reunion 
at Waterloo Station, when he 
returns after-being held in a pris- 
on camp, brings romance drama- 
tically to a clunax. t 

In Roy Cronin, the young of- 
ficer, Taylor has been given the 
most mature and dynamically 
virile characterization in his car- 
eer. He Ufidergoes an age transi- 
tion from a man of 25 to 48, giv- 
ing him ' greater scope than in 
any role i»he has ever portrayed 
'on the screen. As a companion 
feature,, the latest edition of the 
Jones family in 20th Century- 
Fox's "On Their Own," unques- 
tionably .the best of the series. 
See the Joneses broke, with their, 
pockets empty. But the fun real- 
ly begins when Ma Jones starts 
running a ramshackle bungalow 
Court to make ends meet. Don't 
miss this excellent program; now 
playing at the United Artists 
theatre, 9th and Broadway, down- 
town Los Angeles.

and flood it with molaues!" 

His Platform: 


:T.T.L v -I'J -V ■ 

D|jf even the screamingly funny 'iRochester" has his 
VUr serious moments! Take a look at his platform- 
No other candidate for Central Avenue's Mayor shows a 
keener, more sincere grasp of the Community's needs! We 
need "Rochester" because "Rochester" knows what we need! 

Iv I believe the people of the 
Eastside are entitled to the same 
Civil Political and Social Rights of people of other com- 
munities. ;,, .' 

t. I bnieve that our streets should be cleaned, that^we 
should have more efficient police protection, that police of- 
ficers should l>e promoted according to Ability, not because 
of Race or Creed. ' , ' \.i ~ ' _ 

3. I believe there should be a gigantic picnic for all of 

the kids in the district, regardless of race, color or cre«d, at 

. , , - which time! shall use every effort to bring to the Eastaide na- 

\ .1 tional celebrities of stage, screen and radio. 

4. I believe 'there should be an aviation training school for young Afro-Americans, now de- 
nied these privileges. (ArrangemenU have already been made for a conference, oonceming this 
with President Roosevelt when I go East in the near future.) 

If elected, I ishall use every possible meanrto conUct the proper authoritiea, through (tie 
aid of a citizens' tommittee, to bring about such a program. 

I stand firmly for all activities that will g-eate better harmony among our leaders and 
among all races which make up our conomunityi . ^

It was a noble gesture on the part of "The General" and his 
umverrity-playing-day coaches. 

The "Whites" downed the 'Blue." 14-0. Some 41 player, 
made up the two squads with approximately 12 standouts absent, 
including Jackie Robinson, Ray BarUett and John Wynne, aU 
veteran backs. Other duties kept them away. 

Hot prospects for the var»ty next fall, a. a result of the pre- 
view Friday are Milt Smith, lanky end, being groomed to fill 
Woody Strode's roomy ahoes; Bob Wai and Bob Waterfield, backs; 
and Chuck Fears, a big wingman. All are white and together with

Cohen stood out at the end of the day^ play. 

Facing the toughest Khedule in the school's history, the Bruin,

abseitee., the column believe, the Uclan. may duplicate their

32nd clambake in Milwaukee. 
Jeff Davis, hobo "king", claims* 
his outfit is responsible for the 
Lincoln Highway, the HOLC 
and the CCC. In this conven- 
tion, Jeff expects to handle 
1,000 different resolutions- 
none of which are expected to 
weigh very much. Jeff says 
that hoboes are the cream of 
society in the field of Wander- 
ing Willies. They are different 
from bums and tramps in that 
they will work if they can't 
avoid it. Up to now few of 
them have failed to avoid it.

race in the recent Fresitio relays, 
got off to a bad start apd wasn't 

in it. It was felt in some quarers 
that because Clyde Jeffrey,

ed a muscle the week before and 
was declared out, young Davis 
would be the lad to give EUert)e 
the most trouble.

Among those presented were 
Bill "Bo jangles" Robinson, the

jponsor of the anti-poll tax bill. 
. . In gbwing terms, the card de- 
nounced lynching and the poll tax 
and supported prohibitive measures 
pending against both. 

It is gratifying to note such a lib-

UCLA. Incidentally, those Imme-

Such evidences of sympathy for 
minority problems on the port of stu- 
dents at this great public institution 
go a long woy to justify the Ameri- 
can concept of education. As a re- 
sult of this campaign, we know that 
hundreds of Westwood students ore 
aware of the fact that democracy

boasts unless they belong to every 

2nd Baptist Anniversary 

Los Angeles saluted the Second 
Baptist Church Sunday upon the oc- 
casion of its fifty-fifth anniversary in 
the communify. 

Sfseoking from the standpoint of 
physical appearance, certainly there 
is not a religious institution owned 
by Negroes in the nation which sur- 
pxisses Second Baptist. The grace 
and beauty of its architecture is 
equaled in few churches^ any kind 
throughout America. 

However, it is not through the 
charm of its architecture that Los 
Angeles has come to regard this in- 
titution OS one of the great guiding 
forces of the commuiVty. The Second 
Baptist church, during its long his- 
tory here, has contributed immeas- 
urably to the moral stabilization of 
what was—and not too [ong ago— a 
wide open pioneer town. Though we 
loudly wail of "vice and gambling" 
today, thirty or forty years ago the 
situation was ten times worse. 

The development of this city from 
orip-rooring boom town to the com- 
poratively stable and dignified city of 
recent years has been a bold and fas- 
cinating story. Always under policed, 
the city was never forced to "narrow- 
er paths" through official coercion, 
Whotever inclinations toward th» 
;J ''Adoption of moral codes here were di- 
"^ rectly the outgrowth of popular senti- 
'*'ment. Had the "civilizing" of Los 
■Angeles remained completely in the 
^- -'horxls of police authorities, the death 
f wagon would still back up Fifth Street 
t- ooch Soturday night to take away 
, .the week-end shooting victims. 
A Contrary to general misconcep- 
tion, the Negro citizen was a vital 
foctor in the pioneer life of the city. 
Proportionately speaking, there was 
then probably 'a greater number of 
Negroes here than there ore now. 
And ot the time, certain of these pio- 
neer colored settlers were far from 
model moral specimens. In fact, 
rrjony of them were more or less 
anxious with their trigger fingers and 
were in no small measure responsible 
for the county's high mortality rote. 

The Second Baptist church Was 
one of the first local organizations 
to inspire in the people an affection 
for "the right thing" in their doily 
: lives. Reform movements ore much 
mofe accurately measured in the 
terms of increased religious belief 
than in spasmodic city elections. 
Though church is usually considered 
sometfiing strict and repressive, the 
facts prove something else again. As 
religious folth grew anwng Negro 
Angelenos, so did their bank ac- 
counts and property holdings. The 


revelations of an investigation to dis- 
cover comparative homfcs)wnershlp 

" within and without the church would 
be very interesting. I* -'..■•-:«'- ' ?' 

i Responsible in a large' measure 
for Second Baptist^s continued 
growth is the odministratfon of Rev. 
Thomas L. Griffith, pastor for the 
lost seventeen years. Before coming 
here Rev. Griffith served with distinc- 
tion in Des Moines, Iowa, and To- 
peka, Kansas. During the World 

• War I, he was a YMCA secretary in 
France, carrying on extensive re- 
habilitation work. But we of Los An- 
geles, at least, like to consider his 
best work done as pastor of the Sec- 
ond Baptist Church. 

"I Am An American" 

"I Am An American Day" was cele- 
' broted Sunday with a monster pro- 
gram in Hollywood Bowl. The unique 
festivities were dedicated to all those 
who have become citizens of the 
United States during the post year- 
whether by coming of age or naturali- 

The idea is at p^esent only locally 
celebrated, but it is hoped that "I 
Am An American Day" will spread 
until it 'becomes a notional institu- 

Object of the Sunday program was 
to instill in those new members of the 
American Republic a conception of 
their responsibilities as citizens of 
this nation. There is no plea for hys- 
terical patriotism in the celebration, 
but rather a calm determination to 
preserve the spirit of American liber- 
ties and American tolerance. 

GQP in Action 

Although the nation is faced with 
problems which call for national 
unity before foreign nations, the re- 
cent GOP conclave in Fresno was an 
ample indication that domestic lib- 
erties and the right to opposing poli- 
tical views would not be sacrificed to 
war hysteria. 

The Republican state forces swung 
into action dramatfcolly and have 
elected officers of the delegation 
which will represent Californio at the 
Philadelphia convention. Unlike the 
hotly contested Democratic primary, 
the recent Republican balloting was 
solidly behind a harmony delegation. 
Observers pointed out the porodoxi- 
col fact that, despite the President's 
pleas for notional unity, his own par- 
ly split wide open in the state; where- 
as GOP forces produced a united 

California, always a strong factor 
in the selection of a Republican 
presidential candidate, will probably . 
swing immense influence this year. 
The importance of the great western 
vote has been well reflected in the 
coostword migrations of oil irnport- 

* ant GOP candidates within the post 
few months. 

The Quaking Earth catastrophe ter- 
rorized most of Eurbpe, Mother Na- 
ture staged a rampage all her own 
over the week-end in Imperial valley. 

State aid is being rushed to the 
stricken areas, and the nation has 
expressed its concern and its sym- 
■ pothy for the quake victims. Al- 
though not comparable to the Long 
Beach tragedy of several years ago, 
Imperial's temblor is a serious health 
menace. Antitoxins to combat ty- 
phoid and other diseases hove been 
rushed from the State Health De- 

The only valid contribution of such 
experiences in Southern California 
hoi been thei determination to build 
quake proof structures. Buildings 
constructed with specific protection 
against quake stress hove proved 
their worth. The slight, yet regret-

If you are [bom under this 
sign your persdnalitgr is control 
led by fee Zodijacal ^ign of GeA 
ini, and is ruled by fee plariet 
Mercury. This indicates feat you 
have a conustructive mind and 
are capable of entertaining good 
ideas. You have a tendency to 
worry about unimportant mat- 
ters and your imagination is 
sometimes too active. 

At times you will be suffi^ii- 
ently supplied wife money to 
take care of your general needs, 
feen again, you will be confront- 
ed wife financial problems feat 
may prove distressing and hope- 

You have a natural loving dis- 
position and it is inadvisable for 
you to marry until yau have sat- 
isfied your desire to seek new 
thrills and adventures. When 
you finally settle down you wfll 
find much happiness and con- 
tentment in your home and this 
will spur you on to better an^d 
greater achievements. However, 
it will be necessary for you to 
develop self-confidence and poise 
in order to make fee b^t of the 
events that come into your life. 

Ans|— According to fee Zodi- 
acal sign you are destined to be 
very successful in fee near fu- 
ture, feru various fields of en- 
deavor. You are qualified for 
btisiness and have fee ability to 
succeed if the proper amount of 
time is given to the position. For

Mrs. E. W. Moore 
Pasadena NAA 
CP Speaker 

The monthly NAACP meeting! 
field last Sunday at St. Barnabas 
Parish House bad as guest speak- 
er, Mrs. E. W. Mocie. In her ad- 1 
dress, which was largely based 
upon her personal contacts with, 
the community situation, Mrs.' 
Moore stressed the urgent neces- 
sity of parents taking more per- 
sonal inerest in the health of 
their families. She urged periodic 
health check-ups, the immediate 
calling of a physician when 
children become sick, isolation of 
a sick child from the rest of the 
family to prevent the spread of 
disease in the household and ths 
right of every child to be "well 
btgu." Mrs. Moore decried the 
feci that some parents in Pasa- 
dena send their children to school 
unbathed, dirtily clothed, teeth 
unwashed and sometimes unfed. 

Dr. Edna L. Griffin, president 
of the local branch of the NAA- 
CP, presided at the meetmg. The 
next meeting will be held the

Mrs. Rokert Freeman, wife _, 
the former pOstor of the Pasadena 
Presbyterian _d»urch, delivered 
an address, "Wt^oan's Reaponsi- 
bUity in the Home snd m Train- 
jng Youth," at Sojtt Methodist 
church. Women's Dsy last Sun- 
dsy momink. Speaking fraakly. 
she presented as an introductkm, 
the great irasponsibility' facing 
womanhood today: 

"Youth is iour greatest charge. 
As the young people go, so the 
church g o e is tomorrow; as the 
church goes,i *> f^ *he world." 
she said. j 

With the emphasis of a cru- 
sading religionist, Mrs. Freeman 
told of the important obUgstion 
of the ChriAian church ^ its 
failure thus [fair to come ua to 
the standards of Christ 

"We have never tried honestly 
to wurk the prindples ot Jesua. 
The ^eat Christian churdi is the 
only force in the world to put 
Christ in our lives. Wc have a 
long way to go before toe Chris- 
tian church can measure up to 
the standards of Christ" 

The p-eater part of the address j 
was directed to the women in 
the home and the part they must 
play as an indispensable ally of I 
the church in the development i 
of youth with a strong Christian ' 
foundation. j 

She said there is a need for a 
church-sponsored home makers' | 
program and young married | 
peoples' groups because of the 
nnportant influence of congenial I 
marriage relations on youthful | 
members of toe family. Her door | 
ing words were of specjal signi- i 
ficance: i .:, , ! 

"Children art immortal spirits I 
trusted in our care. There is no I 
higher religious privilege t h « j 
that of moulding teese immortal ! 
spirits in toe image of J e f u i

RIVERSIDE. (By Frances M. 
Williams) — An old-fashioned re- 
vival is now on at the Church of 
(jod in Christ, 2843 Uth street 
conducted by Elder L. C. Car- 
ter of Los Angeles at 7:30 every 

Second Baptist church. Rev. 
W. Thomas, pastor, will open the 
series, celebrating their golden 
anniversary June 13 and contin- 
uing through October. On June 
9, Rev. C. Satchell Morris will 
be guest speaker. 

The spirit was very high all 
day at Park, Avenue Missionary 
Baptist church. Rev. L. B. Moss, 
pastor, preaching in morning; 
Rev. G. L. Turner of 1st Baptist 
church, Glenn valley, 3:30 p. m. 
and Rev. S. H. Goodwin, 7:30 p. 
m. The church just paid $1000 
on its indebtedness this week. 

The trustee board of Allen 
Chapel AME church, Rev. W. R. 
Rutledge, pastor, had their 
monthly fish fry Friday evening 
in the dining hall of the church, 
proceeds on indebtedness of the 

Mr. and Mrs. Z. Vance Web- 
ber, New York, Manvolyene and 
Elliot Carpenter of Chicago, 
were some of the diners at the 
Mother's Day breakfast at Al- 
len Chapel AME church May 12. 
They were visitors of Mrs. W. 
G. Williams. 

The annual Spring tea of the 
Just-for-Fun club was held at 
the home of Mrs. Hettie Carter 

Harry Carter, son of Mr. and 
Mrs. Chas. Carter, featured in a 
wreck Saturday afternoon with 
a number of his friends. He is 
recovering nicely. 

The Sub-Deb club honored 
their mothers with a program 
Monday evening at the' home of 
Mrs. John Allen, one of the ad- 
visors. Rev. D. Blade was the 
speaker of the evening. After 
a brief program, refreshments 
were served. 

Mr. and Mrs. A. L. Williams 
motored to San Diego to visit 
friends and to worship at Bethel

cal play arranged and directed 
by Mrs, Rowena Muckelroy

N. Ward, an agted man, was 
trampled and seriously hxirt in 
attempting to rush from a build- 
ing. No property damage is re- 
ported. In Imperial, the Star 
Rooming House, operated by 
Guy Reynolds was destroyed. The 
Little Bu« Cafe, operated by 
Milt Greene of Brawley is re- 
ported destroyed. 

It is needless to say that the 
destruction and damage were 
greatly exaggerated by early 
press reports. The citizens are 
carrying on bravely in true west- 
em style and rehabilitation will 
go on rapidly. Services were con- 
ducted in all churches Sunday 
and Monday found the dapy 
routine take-up. Much apprecia- 
tion is expressed over the tele- 
grams, telephone calls, and spec- 
ial delivery messages inquiring 
as to the extent of damage and 
proffering assistance. Among 
those sending immediate and ur- 
gent messages were J. Allen 
Reese, Grand Chancellor of the 
Knights of Pythias and Eugene 
Sorral, Grand Esquire of the 
Elks. At this time all are carry- 
ing on bravely and are ready to 
build a bigger and better Im- 
perial Valley.. Many thanks for 
all messages and inquiries.

the bout thus: four heats for the 
good-looking Vigil, three for the

with the EAGLE cai;d which also 
took into consideration the fact 
that Polite, who had a two-pound 
pull in the weights was neverthe- 
less on the short end of reach and

Throngs Expected at Gala Opening Celebration 

By Guy W. Fellowes 

"Gold ia where you find it" is 
I th* old aaying, but right now 
|tb«y're findin(^ it at Washington 
d Cenb-aL Wixy, the other day 
I* dricd-up, wizened old fellow, the 
Ikbtd you'd c&U a "deaert rat," 
turned up at the comer ready to 
go to work with a pick and shoveL 
] Stopped by a cop he said, "I heard 
I tell the/B gold here." 

-Gold?'" aaid the law. "Wty, 
I that's the furniture store over 
I there." 

So the old boy went in and got 
I his children a new bedroom set. 
"Just as good as finding gold," he 
■aid, "at this price." 

WtaaU* happened to the local 
IbaU clubs? When the gun was 
Ifired for the opening tiff of the 
iaeason all the local scribes broke 
I oat in a rash of hometown pride 
land pic&ed the Angels and the 
Stars to right it out neck and 

I neck. 

• • • 

WeU. hire we are a month into 
J the season and Bill Sweeney's lads 
I are huffing and puffing to stay in 
I third place, while Jigger Statz and 
I Co. are resting nicely in the second 

• • • 

And who do you suppose is up 
Ion top? Why, it's the San Olego 
Padres, said team being pffeked by 
I this department to be an unim- 
Iportant cellar club at theseeason's 
I opening. Ttaings'd better change 
laooii. otherwise the boss will have 
I OS back in the jute-mill. Moral for 
ikkldics: don't be a sports expert 

In the midst of all this neutral- 
lltp tf"' we Uke FYeddie Allen's 
idea. AalMd how he felt about the 
war, Freddie said. "Why, I'm neu- 
ItraL I doa't care who Ucks Hit- 
ler." ■ 1

Right opw there's at least one 
[■how In tdwn that no (me should 

Down at the Blltmore The- 
latre thej^ reviving "Show Boat" 
[with a cast that seems to have 
made in heaven itself. Gujr 
[Kibbee is playing Cap'n Andy, and 
company includes Norma Ter- 
|iia at the original cast. Helen 
llftorsan win be singing "Bill " and 
)*^Ckn't Help Lovin' That Man of 
" as she did when "Show 
I Boat" was first produced. John 

is the romantic lead, and 
IVanl Robeson, the cae and only, 
IwiH be singing "Old Man River." 
|**S)ow Boat" has the best score of 
[■■y American musical comedy and 
l^rlth a cast like this you can't go 

• • • 

An M-G-lf press release informs 
gasping wtMTld that George 
I Murphy wears out "an average of 
I fire pain ot dancing shoes during 
I the making of each picture in 
[which he appears." 

Interesting. But did Metro ever 
I try to figure out how many gar- 
sta are worn out sitting 
I ttumgh their ultra-special musical 
I extraracan^BS ?

There's GoU in them thar hiUs.

Revealing a theme of streamlined modernism, the striking new building housing the Clethmg departments ef GOLD'S adjoining 
the popular Gold Furniture Company store on Washington Boulevard- n*ar Central, is shown m the sketch above by <l|^hl-">lfltl»< 
Shelbume, as it will appear when it Is officially dedicated to the Community during a Gala Openinfl Celebration. ^ 

Community Is Invited to 
Gala Celebration During | 
Tliurs.,Fri.& Saturday! 

History repeats itsdf ! Whoi CMiimbas discovered America in 1492, a never 
ceasing processimi of Pioneers crossed the broad Atlantic to join in the dCf^ 
opmmt of thk glorious Land of Freedom! . -s 

When Sumner discovered gold in 1849, it marked the beginning of 

endless stremm of Pioneers who crossed the broad plains'' 
of our great middle-West, to join in th^ deT«i<^Hnent of 
the Greatest State in the Union! 

And now, another great discovwry is about to mark the 
start of another trek of Pioneo^ for GOLD HAS BEEN 
this is a different kind of Gold, dear readers ... a Gold ! 
that sparkles with hunuua kindness and understanding, 
for your Reporter has discovered GOLD in the person of 
one "Morris GoM" in an atmosphere of Brilliance and 
Splendor in which several thousands of his Friends and 

Patrons will be his personal^ 
guests during a Gala 3-D Event 

which will celebrate the official 
(^>ening of the magntCcent streaaa- 
Uned GOLD'S Family Clothing 



Lovely Gifts for lovely Ladies :■« 

Smart mementoes of the Gdla i ^f^] 
Event for Men! Gay souvenirs 
for Youngsters, every one! Free 
Gifts for every person who at- 
tends the Brilliant Opening of a 
Beautiful new Community Store 
• . . for this will be an Event to 
be remembered ... an event of 
gaiety and splendor and pride for 
the families of our Community. 

"We wUl proudly dedicate our 
dtanning new store to the Men, 
Women and Children of the Com- 
munity," explained Mr. M&rkson, 

pew streamlined Gold's 
Clothing Store, the things you 
wear are only as good as the 
name they bear! 

"The sensible Man of today 
knows that the manufacturer who 
points with pride to his name on 
the label of the merchandise he 
makes, is the one to look to for 
correct style as well as depend- 
able quality! 

"Therefor, when planning the 
selection of merchandise for our 
new store, we most naturally 
sought the franchises of the most 
prominent makers in America- 
Florsheim shoes, for example, are 
conceded to be the very 'tops' in 
Men's footwear. And when it 
came to selecting the best in men's 
Clothing ,we considered ourselves 
fortunate in securing the famous 
line of "Fashion" Suits. 

"It is often said that the flrat 
thing that is noticed about a 
man's attire, is his Hat We will 
feature Mallory Hats because 
they represent the ultimate in 
fine headwear at prices that are 
not too hard on the pocketbook. 
And all thru our huge stocks of 
well known, friendly Gold | smart Men's wear, our Patrons 

will find equally famous names, 
such as Arrow Shirts, Hollyvpgue 
Ties and others too numerous to 
mention at this breathless mo- 
ment that precedes the Gala 
Opening Celebration!" 

Leon H. Markson 

genial General Manager of 



Furniture Company, and it's new, 
companion Family Clothing store, 
GOLD'S! "We have established 
this store as a convenience to the 
Families who will now oe able to 
shop for their Apparel within 
their own community, in a store 
that fairly sparkles with modem 
charm and comfort!" 

"And every person who honors 
our new store with their pres- 
ence during the brilliant Open- 
ing week of celebration, lovely 
souvenir Gifts will be given to the 
Ladies, the Men and to the Chil- 
dren. Both stores will be open 
until 9 o'clock every night in tlie 
week, so that every person, in- 
cluding those who are emplo3red 
thru the dayti&e, may attend. 

"And for those who have await- 
ed the opening of our smart new 
Family Clothing Store to select 
their Summer and Vacation time 
Wardrobes, hundreds of marvel- 
ous "Opening Week" Values will 
be offered thruout trrery depart- 
mat of the new store, as well as 
throughout OUT huge Furniture 
establialunent. Plenty of extra

FORESEEING THE most dead- 
■ ly, attempts to conquer Eng- 
land, by direct invasion since 
William the Conqueror annihila- 
ted the Saxons at Hastings in 
1066, Winston Churchill last 
week declared to the House of 
Cominons and the British peo- 
ple: **To win victory at all costs, 
victoiy in spite of all terrors, I 
can OTier jrou nothing but blood 
and toU, tears and sweat."' 

As I read this rousing state- 
ment from the lips of the man 
-who guides the destiny of the 
British Emipre, my thoughts 
turn quicldy with deep concern 
to our own natjon^-our United 
States of America. 

-Thete are echoes, whispers 
and ttjurmers. Some ask the 
q u e s't i o n, "Why should we 
fight?"; others sUte, "I will 
fight only in defense of the na- 
tural boundaries of the United 
States-f ; still others contend, "I 
will not fight for any cause 
under any circumstances." 

UosI' of these people who so 
express theirtSrtVes nave enjoy- 
ed their civil liberties and the 
prosperity of this nation minus, 
at leaat. the blodd and tears. 

My thoughts irrevocably turn 
to the dark side of the American 
picture at this point. I see some 
12 or 15 million Americans who 
are somehow outside the pale. 
I see them, when their own peo- 
ple were bondsmen, lighting to 
free the American colonies from 
English oppression. I see them 
cutting into the wilderness, lay- 
ing the foundation for western 
civilization — and I hear them as 
they sftig the sonp of sorrow, 
— those that were to become the 
folk music of the nation. 

I even hear them answer the 
call of President Lincoln to fight 
for their own liberation from 
American bondage. 

These dark children, sons and 
daughters of the soil, gave . . . 
blood and toU, tears and sweat 
Denied the right of protection 
from mob-rule and the unwrit- 
ten lynch law, hampered in their 
pursuit of happiness because of 
industrial discrimination, the 
American Black Man's loyalty t* 
this government and this nation. 
Stands unchalleged. 

At times, of coiirse, the effert 
has been a sore one. For in- 
stance, during the last p^at in- 
ternational butchery, when Ne- 
gro soldiers called to defend de- 
mocracy and civilization were 
jim -crowed, segregated and vic- 
iously discriminated against 
General Pershing's excellent au- 
tobiography recounts many in- 
stances of disheartenirtg bias 
among military brass hats twen- 
ty years ago. 

"^e petty discriminations 
which were heaped upon black 
soldien of the AEF were parti- 
cularly anbitterin?, since these 
very troops immediately disting- 
uished themselves for valor on 
the field of battle. In fact, the 
first decorations made by the 
Fren<* government among the 
American troops were i^^_^ 
a Negro organization. Indeed, 
the entire performance of col- 
ored trooDs from tt»e United 
States in 191t-lM» is to be mar- 
veled at. Beholcl the specUde! 
Black citizens. In many ewes 
denied fiindatnefital civil rights,

to save world democracy! 

But then, the American Ne- 
aro's patriotism has alwajrs been

CHICAGO, May 30.— 
Citizens of all races and 
classes were again shock- 
ed here today with ' news that 
Fi%tnk Edwards, prominent busi- 
ness leader and philanthropist, 
bad answered the Great Call late 
yesterday aftemoonr following 
close upon the death of Robert 
S. Abbott, one of the greatest 
leaders of the race. 

Mr. Edwards, who lived with 
his family at 4136 S. Michigan 
avenue, succumbed at Edward 
Hines, Jr hospital at 5:30 Mon- 
day afternoon, following an op- 
eration for tumor of the brain. 
He had been in poor health for 
some time and had just recent^ 
returned from Los Angeles, CaUi- 
fomia, where he had spent, the 
winter as the giiest of J. L. Hill, 
vice president and manager of 
tlie Angelus FunCral Home. 

However, his condition had not 
been considered serious eitlicr 
by his family or the many new 
friends tw made during lUs stay 
in CaHforaia. Qs daath was, 
therefore, a great shoek to all.. 

As head of the Frank Edwards 
Funeral Hom6 the deceased dur- 
ing the past 20 years had built 
up a business that is the. most 
outstanding mortuary among Ne- 
groes in Chicago. His establish- 
ment had served s o m e of the 
ciiys -most prominent families, 
including memorials f<^ Dr. 
George Cleveland Hall, no4ed 
physician and surgten; Ridiard 
B. Harrison ("De Uwd") of. 
"Green Pastures" fame, and Rob- 
ert S. Abbott, founder and edit- 
or of tlte Chicago Defender. 
' Mr. Edwards had traveled 

Efficiency and previously was in 
the library department of the 
City ControUeffs office. He was 
second on the list of eligibles 
certified by tbe Civil Service 
Commission following the recent 
examination. , 

Peterson was bom hi Wheat- 
en, Minnesota, 43 years ago. He 
came to Los Angeles in 1917 and 
then enlisted to serve with the 
Fifth Regiment of Marines in 
the Second Division. He re- 
turned to Los Angeles in 1920. 

He is married and is the fa- 
ther of three children. The fam- 
ily home is at 4542 Maycrest 
avenue. Peterson is a graduate 
of Southwestern university.

atrtopsy, there were numerous 

scars and abrasions on McDay's i her bedside were her da' 
face and body. The heart was in Mrs. Camille Keys, Miss

itely that there was no taint of 
sjrpnilis and a total absence of 
evidence of coronary thrombosis 
or any other heart trouble. All 
the boy's vital organs were in 
such a healthy condition that it 
indicated positively that the youth 
died from unnatural causes.

DETKOIT. May 30— The broad- ♦ 
jumpTecord of 26 feet, 8 1-4 
inches] set by Jesse Owens in 
1936. is not endangered by pres- 
ent day athletes, believes De- 
Hart Hubbard, former Olympic 
champion and former world's 
record holder in the broadjump. 

"There is no one right now 
who has shown enough to war- 
rant' making me believe Owens' 
record will be broken soon," 
Hubbard said. The first Negro to 
win an Olympic crown was in 
this city with the Cincinnati 
volleyball team which competed 
with 7 others in a national vol- 
leyball championship here. 

"Eulace Peacock was the next 
best man to Owens." Hubbard 
said. "And now his best days are 
behind him, I don't see anyone 
else nearing Jesse's mark. 

"However, you can't t*ll about 
athletes. One may spring up 
over night and smash Owens' 
record and be acclaimed the 
world's greatest broadjumper." 

Hubbard won the broadjump 
at Paris in 1924. He was also a 
member of the Olympic team in 
1928. but unable to defend

Also hear the Ralph Bunches may cotne back. . . and 
that Joe and Fay LaCour may fly out from DeeCee for

"A review of letters received 
from teachers shows that the sub- 
ject of strong suit rebids (other 
than forcing rebids) need$ clari-

mary of those bids in the Gold 
Book (pp. 210-216) with full 
value requirements for the vari- 
ous types of bids and will give 
you now a bird's eye view of the 
structure of these bids, so that 
you may retain in your' mind a 
comprehensive picture of the in- 
terferences revealed in different 

"The following bids: Jump re- 
bid to three in your own or in 
partner's suit and jump rebid to 
four in own or partner's suit. 
While showing great strength, 
differ from forcing rebids not 
only because they show definite 
distributional value (in addition 
to H. T. strength) but because 
they are essentially limit bids. 
They virtually guarantee the ex- 
act number of tricks contracted 
for in the named suit. These bids 
are "logical" or "d i r e c t" bids 
while a forcing rebid (simUar to 
the forcing takeout or other forc-

of Supervisor! this week in adop- 
ting the motion of -Superviaor

plained that the purpose of the

Those entering National For- 
ests who plan to build fires, 
whether in a trailer, stove or 
open fireplace, must first obtain 
a 1940 Forest Service permit. 
Permits are issued without 
charge and may be obtained 
from rangers or at any of the 
offices of the Automobile Club 
of Southern California. 

Eac)r person receiving a per- 
mit is required to sign an agree-

In its work the column must, 
I of necessity, have occasion to 
keep abreast of the Negro's 
daily battle for his rights un- 
|der the American constitution. 
The column oft^n feels that 
I the lot ol the Negro requires 
double duty, a double measure 
I of safe-guarding that which he 
already has accomplished plus 
I •well-directed and planned me- 
I thods of accomplishing that 
which remains out of his reach. 
. And when one of us, im- 
thinkingly, gives vent to pent 
up emotions, calculated to in- 
jure his own kind, physically 
or mentally, in the presence of 
others, then the column real- 
izes over and over again that 
all of us in most instances are 
judged by one of us. 

C^e of us can do all of us a 
lot of harm, or a lot of good, 
depending upon each of us.
