Hold Funeral Services For 
Victims Of Fotal Crash 


IN THE 


SUMMER of 1939, I 
'visited «he New York 
World's Fair. I must admit that 
the General Motors Futurama, 
scenes arjd exhibits of the 
World ot Tomorrow, left the 
deepest jjnprcssio*! upon me. 
Seated in an electrically equip- 
ped wovini T ga ll ery, spectators 
\vere transferred from tne old 
'^6n& Into a miniature new 
'world. The model cities, towns 
and villages were so skillfully 
scaled that it was impossible to 
shake off the illusion that I was 
riding through the blue sky of 
some future dawn, beholding 

■ the wide expanse of a great n«w 
realm beneath me. 

Great metropolitan cities. 

■ New York. Syracuse. Philadel- 
phia. Boston and Chicago, with 

[ their beautiful Riverside drives, 
' their mansions for the wealthy, 

■ ind their tenement sections — 
,tumblmg shacks, filthv streets 

ind pinch-cheeked children — 
passed, oh. so suddenly! 
We werp in the World of To- 

■ morrow! Flat roof buildings, 
winding lanes and paved strerts. 

I . singing fountains and babbling 
brooks! No mansions for the 
rich and no shacks for the poor. 
There was just one world where 
human beings lived and were 
happy. \ 

At the journey's end. I realiz- 
ed that there were other things 
to be seen and other impres- 
sions to be gained at the World's 
Fair. Standing at the foot of the 
pcrisphcre. I watched the world 
rotate on its axis. Just then. I 
remember, I was attracted to an 
immense building from whose 
f'ome danced the red flag of 
Russia. I approached and read . 
over the entrance these cryptic 
■worlds. "The Soviet Union." In- 
side this .building there was on$e 
again a silent story of crowned 
I heads, mansions and fine ladies 
[ whose -society has disanpeared. 
From the Russian building. I 
I proceeded to the ^eat French 
concession and was soon wan- 
dering along the corridors of a 
Ihuee Gallic structure. I read in- 
scripticns and naid" particular 
attention to. the fine recognition 
which the French government 
had accorded its colonial posses- 
Isions. Todav I realized exactly 
Ihow valuably that experience 
was when a British friend whom 
I had not seen in a gopdly 
number of yeiVs placed in my 
hands a copv of "The Man- 
chester Guardian," w'hich car- 
ried the following significant ar- 
ticle: . - 

AN AFRICAN RULK;^ 

I "One of the most mteresting 
characters in the French Co- 
lonial Empire is M. Eixbie. the 
[native Governor' of CnVd. M. 
|£boue was the , first colonial 
I governor to take the risk of 
hoining General de Gaulle and 
Iproclaiming the intention of his 

■ colony to continue resistance. 
I His action has prompted the 
I 'West African Pilot' to com- 
Iment on the significance of the 
I fact that the first colonial ruler 
Ito take this decision was 'a 
Iblack African.* I draw the in- 
IXerence that both the British and 
Ithc French would be stronger 
I to .^kfrica if there were more 
lljilen of African blood like M. 
lEbAue. His career la also the 


Funeral rites which attracted 
commpnity-wide sympathy were 
conducted Saturday from First 
AME church for Eugene Holmes 
and William Brown, Jefferson 
High school students killed in a 
recent -auto mishap. 

Victims of a tragic three-car 
crash at 70th street and Central 
avenue. Feb. 23, the two boys 
were well known in the EastsiA? 


age of six months and lived with 
his mother in San Francisco un- 
til he was six yeaf? old. Moved 
to Los Angeles, he attended low- 
er grade city schools and was 
preparmg for graduation from 
Jefferson at the time of his death. 
An honor student, Brown was 
one of the outstanding campus 
figures at Jefferson. He was a 
members of the varsity football 


High school and were prominent { team and sev<:ral school prgani- 
in student actii^ties. i zatjons. Hi^ outstandji 

Rev. Baxter, CarzoilrlM^^oiiilftliiiatum 

ere- [Esq 


ficiated at the brief final cere- 
1 mony, pointing his remarks with 
I the assurance of eternal life, 
' 'man's universal destiny." 

An impressive tribute to the 

boys was the appearance of Jeff- 

• erson's full a capella choir, whose 

impassioned singing of "Sw^ng 

Low, Sweet Chariot," brought 

< sobs from scores of classmates 

! throughout the church. 

The Royal Esquires club, which 
acted as pall bearers for both 
boys, also contributed resolu- 
tions. "Bill" Brown, an outstand- 
ing member of the group, was eu- 
logized as "a perfect companion." 
Eugene Holmes, though not a 
memk>er of the club, was called 
"a boy who made a name for 
himself in the short time that 
we knew him." 

The caskets were banked 
with flowers. Final prooession 
from the church was deeply 
stirring to onlookers as a Hne 
of white-clad girls, school- 
mates of the boys, flanked the 
bodies. 

Interment was at Evergreen 
cemetery. All arrangements for 
the beautiful ceremonies were 
under the Angelas Funeral 
Home, directed by J. L. HilL

NEW YORK, Feb. 27 (CNA>— f 
An attempt by ia New York newn- 
paper to imitate the policv of 
Deep South newspapers in bar- 
ring f "-.otographs of Negroes 
frran their columns, failed this 
week loUowine vigorous protests. 
The Long Island SUr Journal 
sent * photographer to take a 
picture of the Queensbridge Var- 
sity- Basketball team of Long Is- 
land. When the photogr^her 
uw tfast the team's coach, Jeff 
Goins, was a Negro, he asked the 
members of the tejnn, all white, 
to pose without hiii, inasmuch as 
"the policy of the paper was 
■gainst photographing a^ Negro 
aktng with a white team*." 
KEFUr» TO POSE 

The shocked, members of the 
team phoned ihe Long Island Star 
Journal, where the photograph- 
ers statement was' confirmed. 
The team indignantly refused to 
pose at all and members unan- 
imously signed a protest letter to 
owner and editor of the paper. 

The team members also start- 
ed a drive to publicize the paper's 
policy among sports followers, 

1 and began by sending the I story to 
evary newspaper iij this city. 

I "Oie paper thereupon had' a quick 
change of policy and the photo- 
grapher again visited the team. 

[this time with the request for 
permission to take the team's 

I picture Wmj the coach. He "ex- 
p'aii ed" that the paper had 
changed its Jim-Crow policy a 
few months ago, and he hadn't 
known about it.

was filled with rain Black 
clouds hung low over thr city. 
but as the grave was opened to 
receive the casket of Evfelyn. 
placed OB top of that of her iate 
husband who had preceded her 
into the great beyond by one 
month and tlu^e days, the sun 
broke through the clouds and 
centered their bright splendor 
over the cemetery as an omen 
of joy as these two souls, man 
and wife, werp reunited in the 
other world. 

Evelyn Hamilton Morton was

comfort one another and make 
possible the safety and future r,f 
their children and th^ir grand- 
children.

James Morton died at home, 
one month to the day after thev 
had taken his wife to the General 
hospital from which s.he never 
returned, and died without re- 
covering consciousness from .">. 
coma into which she had laoseci 
on entering the hospital. There 
is no need now to tell her of tho 
passmg of her faithftil husbanr^ 
and perhaps she know? bettc- 
what happened than we poor 
mortals who were left behind to 
mourn her lo«. 

Evieyn Hamilton Horton. al-

CrNNTNCHAM 


Credit for Los Angeles' inter- 
c«nn«:tmg highway system call- 
ed the lifeblood of outlying com- 
munities today was given to 
Councilman Stephen W. Cun- 
ningham, candidate for Mayor, 
by Mark Shaw, president of the 
Suburban District League which 
has endorsed Cunningham^ can- 
didacy 

"Without .-iuth connecting high- 
ways as I he new Arroyo Seco 
freeway, the Cahuenga freeway, 
Sepulveda boulevard. Riverside 
drive. Olyrnpic and Venice bou- 
levard, and other major arteries, 
to the harbor and east and west." 
Shaw declared, "the tremendou'! 
growth of th^ suhurban a r r a .^ 
would ha\e been impossible.' 

Shaw declared that Cunning- 
ham, as chaimian of the Coun- 
cil .< state and county affairs 
committee for eight years, has 
Obtained the funds for these ne- 
c«ssarv ' arteries from state and 
federal sources without creating 
special assessment districts or 
additiorSal local taxes. 
EFFICIENT 

"Hi.s work has boen so effi- 
cient that the city is now re- 
ceiving mgre than twice the 
amount of gas tax funds former- 
ly granted Los Angele,<; by the 
State Highway Commission." 
Shaw .said. 

The Suburban League, associa- 
tion of ch^ftrbcrs W commerce, 
and civic group.= in the 24 sub- 
urban areas *f the city." endors- 
ed Cunningham because "not 
only is his honesty above ques- 
tion, but his record as one of 
the ablest councilmen in the 
city's hi.^tory shows he is tem- 
peramentally qualified to give 
the entire city the harmonious 
and effective leadership Los An- 
geles need.s." — 

In addition to f\is record on 
highway,*, Shaw also praised 
Cunninjfham for his sponsorship 
of legislation lo preserve and 
protect the citv'.'; public beach- 
es. 

Another highlight of Cunning- 
ham's record, according to Shaw, 
is his v^orous fight to reduce 
street lighting asssesments on 
property owners.

> Charles J. HmlMtaid, candidate 
for. mayor, announced the pUt* 
form on which he will aeek elec- 
tion, as follows: 

' Husband is a nationally kno\^ 
tax. counselor. He was at on* 
time connected with the'Los An- 
geles County Assessor's oftice 
and later served for three years 
as a member of the faculty at 
Southwestern University where 
he taught California property 
taxation. 

Husband is a recognized liberal 
and leading Democrat.- 

His platform pledges him to: 

1. Lower taxes and install a 
system of economic rrt^pagement 
in the city government by adopt 
ing proved business 
and practices. 

2. Lower crime and fire los.ses 
by reorganizing the "demoraliz- 
ed Police and Fire departments." 
(This he proposes to accomplish 
by re-establishing confidence and 
.security of rank among the 
members of the two departments 
and by utilizing the executive 
ability and brains of the person- 
nel by placing competent mem- 
bers in key posts. Husband f>oip.t- 
ed out that m.ajor crimes aloni' 
have increased 16 per cent un- 
der the incumbent mayor.) 

3. Protect tax dollars by pro- 
viding audits and control of the 
citv's piopertv assessments, a 
nicasure designed to guarantee .t 
more equitable distribution of 
fh" tax load between large '^nd 
small taxpayers wnile. at the 
same time, protecting the city's 
maior revenue source 

-1. Eliminate radicaN "rofoim" 
ir.former.s and ' oarlor oinks ' 
from important city commissions. 

(5) Restore thr municipally 
owned Water and Power Dep?rt- 
ment to the "high level of ffi- 
ciency which was prevalent be- 
fore the incumbent mayor set 
u|X)n a policy of "nile or ruin." 
and to reduce rates for both 
large and small r-onsumer?" 

t>. Maintain ir the Mayor's of- 
fice and enforce in all other de- 
partments an attitude of toler- 
ance and fair pldy toward litti'' 
and bi^ business men alike, to 
the end that the Police depart- 
ment will be used for th( ori- 
man- ourpose of protecting iifc 
and property 'ind not for politics 
or persecution. ^ 

- . --„. V. ' 

7. Cooperate with the Citji 
Council to the end that the legis- 
lative and executive branches of 
the city's government can intel- 
ligently work for and orotect the 
best interests of the people. , 

8. Deal fairly with both canital 
;-nd -labor, as a matter of their 
right, in order thai Los Angeles 
may cnjov the maximum eco- 
nomic benefits from a healthy 
iPffij'-"ioi c>ro-\'th. 

V. • rsuc a policy of coopera- 
tion v,'ith federal agencies in or- 
der that the city may be able to 
obtain its prooortionate sbari' of 
federal funds for public works 
projects, thereby increasing em- 
rloyment rolls. 

10. Protect the rights and safe- 
guard the security of civil service 
employees and their pension sys- 
tems.

FLETCHER BOWRON 

Continued challenge to the un- 
derworld and; special privilege ^ 
groups if he is re-elected to a ^ nave aecided to run dgain for 
new four year terms was as- the office of Mayor of Los An 
sured today by Mayor Fletcher i g«le$, on a platform basep on the 


Bowron's "cam.paign conrmiittee 

Frank Peterson, campaign 
manager, declared Mayor Bowron 
is pledged to continue his ag- 
. . gressive steps to break up the 

principles entrenched ;ind corrupt political 
machine u hcli controlled the 
city for so many years. 

"Mayor Bowron has protected 
the uses and corrected ,the abus- 
es of dfflnocracy." Peterson said, 
"He has vindicated the demo- 


speclfic needs of this con»munity, 
as expressed to me by thiousaiids 
of its representative ciltiTen-^. 1 
intend, if elected, to; 
I. Stabilize Pensions.

ty or after long and faithful ser- ' 


vouia itave been provided ifrbm

owners. This enterprise should' 
be revived immediateir a» «<}«-; 
fenae mearare of paramount M^ 
portance to the greater port on 
he Pacific. 
-a. Reduce Grime 

1 propose to reorganise the Po- 
'■c4 Department into speci>d dt 
isipns, manned by men who un- 
erftand crime and the psychblor 
y |of the criminals they must 
•ombat. The Los Angeles, Police 
Department will no longer spend 
its time chasing "B" girls along 
the roofs of East Fifth Street^ or ' 
radjing family card games! while, 
all over town, burglars wilk im- 
hampereid' through citizen^' front 
do0rs! 
4-b. Reduce Traffic AccidJents 

If as many people were killed 
daily in the streets of Los An- 
g^eles by any deadly weapon oth-« 
er than an automobile, the Gov- 
ernor would declare martial law 
in this community! 

I projpose to revive ' in its en- 
tirety the "Twelve Point Plan" 
developed by the Automobile 
Club of Southern California, the 
Traffic Commission of Los An- 
geles, the Police Department, and 
myself. We began to put this plan 
into operation in the summer of 
1938 with excellent results.

Fury at Fremont 

A heorty Indication that the con- - 
^ience of Los Angeles has rrot fully 
i-i {• J,*oiled hos been the tumultuous, city- 
' %/^ide protest over the mock lynching 
' ; of six Negro students^at f/eiyic»<t^ 
lihigh school. i' ' ^ "' v i' c 

". The incident, which occurred b 1 
month ago, was incited, when some ► 
portion of the SoOthside institution's 
student body objeced to the unusual 
presence of siix colored pupils. For 
many years, it seems, there had been 
no block, atteiidonce at the school. 
Some white students painted "black 
Sambo" cords protesting the atten- 
dance of the dorker school-mates. 
The whole race baiting campxaign 
come to a clima)< in the burning in 
effigy of a Negro student on the 
school campus. 

By now, the story hos spread to the 
four (million) corners of Los Ange- 
. les and has stirred the interest and 
ire of the entire city. One of the most 
significant results of the race-hatred 
explosion was a meeting held last 
Saturday within the Fremont school 
district ot j-he home of a white moth- 
er who wos shocked at the stigma 
placed on her community by the ac- 
tion of some students at Fremont. 
The gathering was compxjsed of rep- 
resentatives of Negro organizations, 
a representative of the American 
Student Union and white students of 
Fremonfhigh school! The four-px)int 
program decided upon by this organi- 
zation, now called Mothers and Citi- 
zens Committee for Democracy in 
Education, to combat race antagon- 
ism at Fremont is admirable in its 
conciseness and in its adherence to 
the realities of a specific remedy. 
They ore the some four points whvch 
UCLA, use. Occidental and City Col- 
lege students v^^ill make when they 
appear tjjdpy before the Los ^a- ^ 
^ies Board of Education to decry 
the Fremont incident. 

Th? simple recommendations are: 

(1) That an aud call (general 
student body meeting) be held at 
Fremont high school to acquaint 
students with the merits of Afro- 
Americon history and the rights of 
all American citizens. 

b. That sinpilar aud calls be held 
throughout LoS Angeles to fight* a 
rising tide of rOciol antagonism. 

(2) That fhe administration of 
Fremont high schol invite any Ne- 
gro student wHo might haVe left the 
school because of intimidation to re- 

. turn. I 

' ( 3 ) Tho t the Boo rd of Educo tion 
issue o signed statement specifically 
denouncing the Fremont incident. 

(4) That dn investigating com- 
mittee be set up by the Board of Edu- 
cation to include student and com- 
, ^ munity representatives. 

With plans for such militant and 
comprehensive action underway, the 
outburst at Fremont might well 
hove been a blessing in disguise. Mis- 
:_ celloneous repdrts from oil sections 
of Los Angeles within the post sev- 
eral months hove pointed to a strange 

. increase in racial conflicts of one 
V kind or another. So marked has be- 
come the number of incidents that v.. 
most serious observers hove conclud- 
ed that some sort of organized com- 
poign is being put forward to 'Ala- 

!:,rtomify' Los Angeles. The Fremont 
case has served as o rallying point of 
Tnuse progressive forces which are . 
ooposed ta the spread of hate doc- 
trines and ore oddlcled to a belief in 
democrotic principles. However, t^e 
"rollying 'round" has not been corrK ' 
pleted by onymeons. Community of- 
orgonizations and civic-minded in- 
dividuals ore urged by thjs .r)^vys-, 
poper .ta,t.ake on active interest In. 
the outcome of the Frenr>ont investi-- 
gotion and in general reforms 
thraughout the city's educational 
system. 


Trogedyot Jefferson 

Bill Brown and Eugene Holmes 
were students at Thomas Jefferson 
high fschool. They were J<;1lled Sun- 
doy before lost in on automobile ac- 
cident at 70th street and Klentral 
avenue. Funeral services were held 
Saturday from First A,M.E. Church. 

Behind this somber sequence of 
events, there is a story-<ind a les- 
son—of immense contemporary sig- 
nificance. First, there is the human 

drama of, death and bereavement. 
Of young lives brought to o- prema- 
ture and unnecessary termination. 
Of families broken and mourning.. 
Of school cl>ums who will always re- 
member. 

But, above these obvious, if heart- 
rending facts, we find a greater im- 
portance, a wordless and terrifying 
document. For, though dead. Bill 
Brown and Eugene Holmes shriek a 
taunting message to those who live. 
The two boys hod been racing 
down Central avenue at a speed vari- 
ously estimated between fifty and 
ninety miles per hour. Two other cars 
were involved in this tragic contest. 
Torrential rains hod inundated Los 
Angeles, and driving was twice as 
dangerous as under ordinary circum- 
stances. Yet Bill Brown and Eugene 
Holmes were racing up Central ave- 
nue. 

Why? The very thought of such on 
escapade should horrify any respon- • 
sible driver. Every man or woman 
who sits behind the wheel of on auto- 
mobile should be so thoroughly 
schooled in the risks and duties of 
such a position that speedway rac- 
ing on a public thoroughfare could 
never occur. Somewhere along -the 
line, society failed Bill Brown and 
Eugsne Holmes. They were not given 
o sure enough concept of their role 
as motor car drivers. They were re- 
leased upon the streets of this great 
city to. operate tremendously pow- 
erful machines at the risk of the life 
of every citizen, -and they ended in a 
sort of perverted suicide. 

The responsibility for such a trager 
dy must rest squarely upon the 
community which permitted it to 
happen. If this were on isolated, 
freak accident, we might logically 
dismiss its community implications 
and place blame upon the indiscre- 
tion of those immediately involved. 
Unfortunately, this is not the case. 
With different names and particu- 
lars, the story of Bill Brown and Eu- 
gene Holmes is reenacted thousands 
of times annually throughout the 
United States. A formidable moun- 
tain of statistics testify to the truth 
of this statement. 

But the pressingly important as- 
pect of these statistics ore their re- 
lentless emphasis upon the fact that 
an overwhelming majority of U. S. 
traffic accidents ore caused by 
youngsters between the ages of 15 
and 23, who ore, after all, the only 
real "outo generation" and, as such, 
might be expected to be far better 
drivers than their parents. That a 
generation of "driver incompetents" 
has been allowed to develop is one of 
the great indictments of modern so- 
ciety. In many instances, the most 
dangerous motor cor operators ore 
those^Very youths who possess- limit- 
less jnfornfKition and skill as to the 
construction and driving of automo- 
biles. 

States which hove sponsored intel- 
ligent research into the couses of 
traffic fotolities have in every case 
reported as the most frequent cause 
"wrong attitude toward driving." 

Authoritative repxjrts hold that the 
. average new driver has a fine control 
of his cor, little control of himsetf. 
The obvious remedy is to launch on 
.immediate notion-wide. State-wide, 
;county-wide, city-wide, compriunity- 
wide, SELF-wide educational pro- 
gram. To drive an automobile is o 
privilege, which must be earned by, 
core, coution and courte|y. ft is 
neither a joke nor a game,

•THE WORLD THIS WEEK 


THE SECRET 
WEAPON 

"What is Italy's secret wea- 
pon?" runs the current joke in 
Berlin. The answer: "The Ger- 
man army." The real truth, of 
course, is that it is no secret. 
With a surprising absence of 
embarrassment, Italy's spokes- 
men publicly hail with joy the 
news that the British have re- 

feived their first setback in Ita- 
ian Libya — at the hands of Nazi 
bombing squadrons. For a re- 
gime which has long extohod the 
glories of militarism' and pre- 
sumably devoted its energies to 
that end, the steady retreat of 
Fascist legions indicates a start- 
ling lack of readiness for war. 
either in morale or machines. 
Despite the confidence expressed 
by their leaders, the addition of 
hundreds of new members to the 
secret police shows that little of 


^flung highway system. For it is 
weather which is the implacable 
foe of roadways, which hurls 
down landslides, breaks high- 
ways wide with cracks, hollows 
out gullies under Roadbeds and, 
in general, raises merry Ned on 
the smoothly stretched ribbons 
of concrete highways. This fact, 
cited in the authritative analy- 
sis just made known by the Na- 
tional Highway Users Confer- 
ence, upsets the common myth 
that it's heavy vehicles which 
are destructive of modem high- 
ways. The marshalled facts sub- 
mitted by engineers who hav^ 
supervised the building of mil- 
lions of miles of roadways show 


AMKBICA'S ATTITtJDS 
CHANGES 

In futur^ years, historians will 
record the swift ' changes that 
took place in the tempet- and at- 
titude of the American people 
and their leaders dwrjng 1940 an4^ 
1941. Looking back now on tJie 
months that followed the out- 
break of World War H, it seems 
as if we lived then in another 
world. The majority of the peo- 
ple Wanted neiitrality — and they 
wanted no part of Europe's 
newest mess. They wanted to 
avoid the risk of war at all costs.. 
And the statesmen* who rep^- 
sented them felt the same way. 

Today, the polls shows that we 
still want to keep put of war — 
but that a considerable majori- 
ty, despite that, favor helping 
England to the fullest extent, 
even if it involves the risk of 
our being drawn into war. No 
one talks ot neutrality — it is as 
dead as Moses. The cash-and- 
carry policy has been virtually 
forgotten— it - is perfectly clear 
that every financial resource will 
be used to help arm Britain no 
less than America. The American 
people, in short, are violently 
partisan, and the American na- 
tion! s definitely and irretriev- 
ably involved in the war. 

What has caused this change? believe that England's fate arid 
It took Amreica nearly lihree 
years to become really anti-Ger- 
man in the last war— it took 
us no less than a year this time. 
Better communication, both ver- 
bal and visual, has been a factor. 
So has the amazing courage of 
the British people — the Ameri- 
cns like, and respond to any dis- 
play of bravery against odds. 
Most important, in all probabili- 
ty, has been the 


why opposition to the lend-lease 
bill has made so little progress. 
There just i5n't enough support 
behind it.' 

. Last chance of defeating, or 
seriously modifying the bill— 
and, at best, it was an extreme- 
ly frail chance— died when Wen- 
dell Willkie took the stand. Will- 
kie received 22,000,000 American 
votes, last November, only 4,000.- 
000 less than the President His 
trip to England, in which he 
crammed months of visiting, 
talking and investigating, into 
a few days and nights, was a 
dramatic pilgrimage. He made a 
fine impression abroad. While he 
lost some of his past supporters, 
he has gained new friends and 
followers. So when Willkie said 
he was 100 per cent in favor of 
the bill, with certain modifica- 
tions, and went even farther 
than the President in some re- 
spects (by suggesting that we 
give Britain, outcight, destroy- 
ers aiid army bombers) the die 
was ca.st. 

The two men who were given 
the votes of close to 50.000.000 
Americans in their race for the 
presidency, and who stand out 
head and shoulders above any 
other national figures of this day.

ing army is this week expected 
to top the one million mark. Off 
to a slow start, due largely to 
a lack of housing facilities, the 
army, which last June, consist- 
ed of only 260.949 officers and 
men had grpwn by last month to 
778.000. Today, at the one mil- 
lion mark, it is only 400.000 short 
of the total set tor June 1 by the 
War Dept Meanwhile, the fourth 
call for California's conscriptees 
has gone out. When this induc- 
tion is completed by March.. 31. 
this State will have supplied 
more than 26,000 6f its first 
year's quota of 37,000 men. 
America, in mobilizing a great 
section of her manpower for mi- 

i litary service, is engaged not in 
a voluntary choice, but in one 
which events abroad havr thrust 
upon her. In a world given over 
to war and threats of war, a first- 
ranking power has no choice but 
to heed the waming of menac- 
ing conditions, and to take de- 
cisive steps not only for her pro- 
tection, but for her very preser- 
vation.

for the trapezoid-shaped windows 
of the octagonal observation 
towers which dot the airfields 
of the nation. Designers the 
country over applied- ttiemselves 
to the same problem, but to the 
California mg:hanic who, like 
more than one inventor, tinker- 
ed with clocks and watches as a 
youngster, go the honors of fa- 
thoming the mechanical riddle 
which baffled all others. The

May I take this oppwrtunity to 
thank you for the coop>eration 
you always have given me as 
your representative in the City 
Council. 

I had planned to again be a 
candidate this spring but to my 
intense regret, after a severe in- 
fluenza attack, I have not suffi- 
ciently regained my strength to 
do so. While this is unavoidable 
it .-'ffprts me deenlv as I know 
my retirement will disappoint my 
host of friends and supporters. 

I have always been proud of 
the Eighth District and the loy- 
alty of the people. I have done 
my very best to make it the ideal 
spot of the city in which to live, 
by securing millions of Hollars 
for Dublic imorovements in the 
.southside section. Thus I h.ive 
been able to accomplish a great 
de^l for the district. 

When I first took office lhe 
streets were in deplorable condi- 
tion, full of holes, roueh and a 
menace to the community. Since 
♦hen all the streets in the Eighth 
District have been resurfaced and 
many rniles have been paved; 
storm drains have been construe- ■ 
ted: all dead-end streets rut thru J 
and paVed. This was done without i 
prnnerty owners. i 

There is much more to be ' 
done for our district and I am : 
exceedingly sorry that I cannot j 
continue to serve you. 

Most sincere! V.

•f tfa« East Area Health Pro- 
gram, it is revealed here this 
vcek that Los Angeles holds the 
natknal record for public health 
nass meetinft, ffcr the highest 
kimber of medical referrals in 
clinical treatment of tuberculos- 
is aad'for the number of physic- 
ians attending symposiums on 

.public health. 

Since the opening of the E. A. 
H. P., less than two years ago. 
more than 6000 colored families 
have been touched through clin- 
ic and home visits. Free x-ray 
examinations have been provid- 
ed for I32S persons and 1463 
have received other examina- 
tions. 

Three hundred and seventy 
clinic sessions have been held 
during this period and are now 
conducted on a daily schedule at 
the East 28th street Health Cen- 
ter. 

Miss Dixon is the first Public 
Health Nurse to be accredited to 
the West Coast. She received her 
certiricate in public health nurs- 
ing from the University of Wash- 
ington after graduation from 
.•"reedman's Hospital. Washing- 
ton. D. C. She resigned from the 
staff of the L. A. General Hospi- 
tal to accept her present appoint- 
ment by James Stone, executive 
secretary of the L. A. Tubercu- 
losis and Health Association. • 
"We function as a laison be- 
tween the family physician and, 
the community." she explained to 
an EAGLS reporter. "Our prob- 

i lem IS one of educating people 
to nealth protection, for the trend 
today is toward preventative

Tuesday evening. March 18, at 
Philharmonic Auditorium. 

Miss Maynor's sensational rise 
to faVne is one of the rare suc- 
cess stories in recent musical 
history. A short time ago, she 
was a virtually unknown singer. 
Today critics agree on the dis- 
covery of a new star on the mu- 
sical horizon. Only summer be

Warren Scbtt, head of the de- 
partment of cinema at USC, says 
that a Ne^ro motion picture in- 
dustry Is financially possible. Al- 
though, as he! points out,' the gross 
from colored films playing col- 
ored hoiises is incomparable to 
those garnered from the major 
studio products, he feels that 
there is enough profit available 
in the trade to make black pro- 
ductioh a reality. He estimates 
top gr»ts of Negro pictures play- 
ing Negro houses at $30,000-— 
from which 'production and di»- 
tribution costs must be subtrgct- 
ed. . 

Now, when we consider that 
an average production day at 
Warner Brothers costs $10,000 
willy-nilly, perhaps we can face 
the economies of Million Dollar 
Productions and other all-Negro 
film producers with a greater 
charity. 

:Scott, in an interview with this 
penslave, pointed out that a ma- 
jor difficulty in the distribution 
of Negro pictures is the class of 
movie houses which colored films 
mupt play. Throughout the South, 
he said, mahy "cullud shows" are 
nickel aa:i dims atfairs from 
which thete can^be extracted lit- 
tle gravy for the bjys along Sun- 
set avenue. 

Conversation with Scott 
brought to mind an interview 
with Franklin Underwood, head 
of Twentieth-Century-Fox East- 
ern Story department, in New 
York coupla summers ago. At the 
time, Ethel Waters' smash, "Mam- 
ba's Daughter." was the scream- 
ing news along Broadway. Play- 
wright Dubose Heyward consid- 
ered the item very expensive 
merchandise and specified , to that 
effect when approached bv Hol-

I toke this method of thanking 
my neighbors and friends for 
their kindness and sympathy to 
me in one of the darkest hours 
of my life, in the passing of my 
darling daughter, Laura Louise 
Waite. You have my sincere 
thanks for your piany deeds of 
kindness. 

Your presence in my loneliness 
to comfort me in my grief and 
sorrow; your cards and telegrams 
of sympathy; the lovely flowers 
that breathe unspoken words of 
the heart; and for the use of your 
cars. 

And I sincerely thank Mrs. J. 
F. Williams for tlie obituary and 
Mr. John Hargrove for the reso- 
lutions of respect and 1 sincere- 
ly thank our pastor, Rev. F. D. 
Jordan, Rev. Austin sr. and Rev. 
Austin jr. Their spiritual ser- 
vice gave me strength and I will 
still lift up mine eyes unto the 
hills from whence cometh my 
help. 

And I also offer my sincere 

thanks to the wonderful and ef- 

: ficient staff of morticians, the

I thank you for patience, courtes>-, 

j kindness, symoathy and sen-ice. 

May God bless and keep vou

By C. A. B. 


ONE OJ' THE MOST deplor- 
abl« effects of the recent in- 
terracial incident at Fremont 
High schol is the heart-breaking 
realizafon that prejudice is an 
actuality in American life which 
it must force upon the average 
Los Angeles boy and girl 

M«re statistical reports of 
lynching in Alabama, disfran- 
chisement throughout the entire 
South, a drug counter refusal 
once in a while, — these are not 
'enough to bring home in all its 
sUrk ugliness the FACT of U. 
S. prejudice to the colored 
youngsters of our city. There is 
actually little to remind the 
black boy and girl resident in 
Los Angeles that skin-color is 
a major transgression and that ! 
the physics of their complexion ! 
would make Uiem lieble ^er-j 
lynching on a slight pretext in 
ipany areas of this nation. More 
than the grissly stories of Scotts- 
boro and Shreveport more than 
the harangues of ministers and 
teachers, "the Fremont affair." 
in which Negro students were 
terrorized by whites, has con- 
veyed to our youth the reality 
of hatred. 

An indication of such a dour 
realization on the part of young 
people came to me this week in 
a letter from Lincoln Fortson, 
who is 16 years old. His com- 
munication is a document of 
contemporary Los Angeles. I 
quote it: 

"Dear Mrs. Bass. 

'Tm a boy 16 years of age. 
Boy Scout chapter 180. End be- 
long to the organization of R. 
O T. C. at Los Angeles liltjh 
school. 

"Two weeKs ago 1 read au ur 
• tide in the California Eagle 
giving an account of ;.n imi- 
dr-nt at the Fremont High school, 
wherf Neuio Li ys w?.-.' hung 
in effigy and referred to as 
'coor."' on Inr school ci^mpus 
This :.'' more t':?n I can let pass 
w u < u' expr*- s -.g my cand:(. 
opinion. 

"Wheh 1 read the article, my 
mind carried me to Foshay Jun- 
ior High school, from which I 
graduated last June, and where 
both white and black walk the 
same straight line under the di- 
rection of Principal Dowling 
and vice principal for boys, Mr. 
Brown. 1 can never believe such 
school authorities as these would 
let a- thing likt- the Fremont af- 
fkir occur on their campus; and. 
if it were found brewing, 1 
firmly believe that these prin- 
cipals, along with their honest 
faculty, would put forth every 
effort to correct a condition of 
that nature to the satisfaction of 
the public and lor the protec- 
tion of the student* concerned. 

"At the beginning of this 
torm. I went to Beverly High 
school, where Mr. ^UcheC is 
principal. I was the on'v Negro 
boy in that school of m j:e than 
3 000 students. I was treated no 
differently from^any other stu- 
dent. There I foAd another fine 
faculty ready ai* willing at all 
times to do everything possible 
for the god of the students. 

"I m^e fine friends among 
the boys and even pals, as we 
often refer to one another. We 
sprawled on the ground and 
lunched toguher many timet, 
trading portions of our hmch- 
es. We laughed, talked and di»- 
ciissed current issues. 

"Now that my mother hu 
work in another vicmity, _we 
flave moved from Beverly Hilla, 
and I am now attending U)t 
Angeles High school. I find, so 
far as I have been able to dis- 
cern, the game attitude here as 
at Beverly Hi»h. I think the 
school is gr^T 

Now. you can see clearly 
low I must have felt toward the 
'remont occurrence and how 
hocked ewery Ne^ro boy who 
-ad the article must be. 
"May I call your attention to

Dent Poyd 
Tribute to 
The Eogle 

In his main address befpre the 
Third Annual Community Health 
Mass Meeting, Sunday, at Inde- 
pendent church, A, W. Dent, sup- 
erintendent of Flint-Goodridge 
Hospital, who gained national 
recognition for his work in "Pen- 
ny-A-Day" hospitalization, prais- 
ed the California EAGLE for its 
.support of the East Area Public 
Health orogram. 

"When I first arrived in Los 
Angeles and read a copy of the 
EAGLE. I saw column after col- 
umn of news and stories about 
this meeting i and devoted to the 
interest of riublic health." Dent 
declared. 1 

"It is a splendid thing for this 
community to have a newspaper 
which reflectk this kind of inter- 
est in the health of its readers." 

Pleased with the recognition of 
the services of the EAGLE, Edi- 
tor Charlott* ArBSss declared 
that it is no new thing to find 
the paper holding hi|{h the stand- 
ards of all progressive measures 
of the people of this commiinity. 

"We are now in process of cel- 
ebrating the 62nd anniversarv of 
the California EAGLE." Mrs. 
Bass said, "and we hope to be 
always in the front ranks of ser- 
vice to our race arid our nation." 

A monster subscription drive 
for 10 thousand new subscribers 
in California enters its third week 
today. A special meeting of sub- ; 
scription solicitors in the cam- 
paign will be held at 3 p. m. Fri- ; 
day afternoon in the business of- 
fices of the Eagle, 4075 South 
Central. 

Suit Against 
Cafe Settled 

Suit filed by Rev. Lee B. 
Brown, pastor of Central Bap- 
tist church, and Mrs. Lillian 
Trueheart against the Beacon 

! cafe, Avalon and Anaheim blvds. 
in Wilmington, has been settled 

' out of court, Att'y Curtis C. Tay- 
lor, counsel for the prelate, stat- 
ed this week. 

At the offices of Att'y Taylor, 
it W9S learned that the proprie- 
tor of the Beacon cafe had admit- 
ted his error, but said that it was 
all a mistake and that it was not' 
his policy to refuse service to col- 
ored patrons.

Facilities Urged 


State GOPers 
Condemn 
Race Bias 

Assembly Action 
Aimed at Bias in 
Defense Industries 

Explosion of o political 
bombshell wos recorded 
in -f re s no^S oturdoy-vyhgn i 

the 8th annua] conference of the 
California Republican Assembly 
passed resolutions condemning 
racial discrimination, "particu- ] 
larly against Negro citizens," in j 
the conduct of defense industries, ' 
The State-wide GOP organi- '. 
zation also passed a resolution ! 
bluntly demanding that the Con- 
gress of the United States and 
California's legislature immedi- 
ately pass measures outlawing 
racial bias in defense employ- 
ment. 

Coming as a surprise even to 
veteran Republicans, the action 
was among the most militant 
adopted anywhere in the nation 
by a major political organization. 

Much credit for piloting of the 
resolutions in Fresno wjis given 
William D. Campbell, president 
of the State Assembly and chair- 
man of the Los Angeles County 
Republican Assembly. A former 
candidate for Congress in the 
14th distritt, Campbell is widely 
known for' a, liberal attitude on

was iit full flight this week thru 
the scrub and high grass of the 
mountainous Gojjam area of 
Ethiopia, following a smashing 
defeat at the hand of Ethiopiain

The hunted and costly retreat 
of the Italians was the aftermath 
of the frist big Ethiopian victory 
since Emperor, Haile Selassie re- 
turned to his country to lead the 
fight against the Italian invad- '

Mrs. Tycine Webb, estranged

filed a divorce action charging 
cruelty, through the offices of 
Att'y Curtis C. Taylor. The ac- 
tion came as a surprise to many 
of the couple's friends. They

been very active in local college 
and social circles for several 
years. , 


babies and th« immediate need 
of fn increase in funds spent for 
public health here were made by 
W. A. Dent, before a capacity 
audience at IndejpendMit church 
Sunday in the Third Annual 
Community Health Meeting 
sponsored by the L. A. Tubercu- 
losis Association, the Southern 
California Medical. Dental, and 
Pharmaceutical Association, and 
the Citizens Advisory Commit- 
tee. Dr. E. I. Robinson and Nor- 
man O. Houston presided. ' 

Mr .Dent, who is superinten- 
dent of Flint-Goodridge Hospital 
in New Orleans, was the princi- 
pal speaker on this program 
which -also presented four nation- 
ally known medical men brought 
here from the East Coaitt for a 
symposium on public health this 
week. 

EVERTBODY'S FIGHT 

"The public needs to be arous- 
ed about problems of health," 
Dent declared. "It is plainly ev- 
erybody's fight, since every one 
of as is effected, either directly 
or indirectly. Los Angeles needs 
to spend more money on public 
health. At present, only' 25 per 
cent of what is considered a fair 
budget is spent here for public 
health." , 

Praising the city-wide inter- 
est in the meeting Sunday, Dent 
declared it to be the largest' in 
attendance that he had witnessed 
in any other section of the coun- 
try.

DR. EUGENE NELSON 

Arguing i n s u ff icient 
evidence to cause a corv^ 
viction of Dr. Eugene NeU 

son, for the death of Otilia Du^ 
razzo following an alleged illegal 
operation. Attorney Lloyd C. 
Griffith »ioved for dismissal of 
the charges of murder and abor« 
tion in Judge Taplin's court at a 
preliminary hearmg held yester- 
day. 

Dr. Nelson, who has been held 
without bail since the woman's 
death. March 5, was released on 
$2500 bond. The case was bound 
over to Superior Court with trial 
date set for March 28. 

On the testimony of Dr. Hom> 
er Rue, physician at Lincoln Me- 
morial hospital, who examined 
and operated on the dead woman 
after she is feported to hav« 
been treated by Dr. Nelso- it 
was established that her con ion 
was not such at that time lo. Dr. 
Rue to give an opinion that com- 
plete abortion had Uken place. 
.'She first called at my offica, 
but I refused to treat her," Dr. 
Hue stated from the M'itnesi 
stand. 

He admitted attending the 
woman at the Lincoln Hospital, 
performing an operation up(» 
her. alone, except for the pres- 
ence of nurses. 

Other surprise evidence came 
from testimony given by Dr. Ger- 
trude Finklestein. resident phy- 
sician of the General Hospital 
where the Durazzo v.oman died- 
Dr. Finklestein declared that 
her opinion that an abortion had 
been performed on the patient 
was formed only from the pat- 
ient's history. She did not maka 
a speculum examination. 

Aldo Corsini, arresting office, 
stated that he. in companv with 
Dr. Finklestein. Det. George In- 
vestigator Brooks, of the Medical 
Board, found Nelson in his office 
at 3006 S. G ^d avenue, after 
the woman's # 'li 

"We took •,:.. defendant to th« 
General Hospital. confronted 
him wi<h the oaiient. She de- 
clared. "I've seen him and ha 
treEtjd me." 

It had been reported tliat the 
woman dii-ecltv accused Dr. Nel- 
son of performing the abortion 
which causea her death. Corsini 
refused to elaborate on the abova 
statement of the woman. 

He swd that there was no in- 
dication around the physician's 
office to indicate that he was 
i practicing medicine. Dr. Nel- 
son's license was revoked a .year 
ago. Several rusty and broken 
' surgical instruments gathered 
from his office were introduced 
89 evidence by the prosecution. 
Dr. Nelson, one-time social 
leader of the colored colony here.

, than 25 years.

As Los Angeles prepares to go 
to the polls within Sj few weeks 
to decide whether ili shall have 
sufficient or insufficient library 
service, this question! was asked 
of five average peraobs: a house- 
wife, high school student, college 
boy, domestic emplojre and lab- 
orer. 

Mrs. Ollie CredcU of 4048 Adair 
street, is a housewife. In addi- 
tion to her manifold duties, she 
takes in sewing and; thus has a 
double need of the llit»-ary. Be- 
sides reading for recreation, she 
finds the librftry useful in pro- 
viding i>ooks OR dressmaking 
and designing, - and,< magazines 
which show the latest styles and 
patterns. ^ | 

Sarah Russell is t^ student at 
Jefferson High school. 

"I'll be glad when| the library 
gets baick on its "regular sched- 
ule," she said. "I ha,ve to use it 
several times a weelt Iff fact, Td 
rather study there tl^an at horpe 
because my brothers and sisters 
are always around making noise. 
But it's only open Mondays, Wed- 
nesdays and Fridays. 

""Vernon LibVary is particular- 
ly valuable to Jeffeilson students 
because we study Negro Histdry 
and no other library in the city 
has such a fiiw collection of da-

Charles Haminond, Los Angeles

ed the Vernon Branch for its Ne- 
gro History collection and des- 
cribed inconvenience incurred 
since a curtailed budget has lim- 
ited branches to less than 25 
hours of public service weekly. 

"Domestic employees who are 
at liberty only on lliursdays have 
been hardest hit by the cut in li- 
brary service," said Mrs. Agnes 
Barnes who works in Bel Air. 

"Up until last Fall, I had been

Some find they need only start 
on H three days before "their 
time" and take it ^s directed in 
order to relieve periodic paip due 
to functional causes. 

Others find that the proper use 


of CARDUI enables them to stim-

are enabled to build up strength

and thtiiklgK aerionsly of: the 
ripiificanee of the preiea i ait-

Dr. DuBois expressed pelief 
that Negroes should join the 
thinkers, form cooperativeaL be- 
come producer conscious, and get 
in on the ground floor; change 
from economic illiteracy, to eco- 
nomic literacy, by changing their 
ideas of production for sale to 
ideas of production for use. ! ' 

He sounded an optimistic] note 
in closing. "It may be long com- 
ing, but when the world does 
come out of its present sharables, 
we are going to see that the peo- 
ple in the United States have a 
bebtter way of life. T^ey will 
find it through cooperatives." 

Africon Natives 
Brought About 
Alfonso Downfall 

ROME, (NNS), Mar. 13i-Al- 
fonso XIII, former King of Spain 
and only modem monarch to su- 
stain major defeat by Africans, 
died last week, not mourned by | 
the white world because of his 
"playboy" activities and his 
bungling of Spain's one-time ag- 
gressive policy in Morocco. 
. In the easy-going days of the 
World 'War, he was known for 
his expensive comings and go- 
ings at the fashionable spots of 
continental Europe. Operating 
for the most part in the bars and 
brothels of Paris, he splashed up 
a fortime inherited from his 
share of the Hapsburg-Bourbon 
loot of centuries. His troubles { 
came after the war. Alfonso be- 
came deeply committed to a | 
policy of exploitatioji and war in 
Morocco and he caught a lough 
customer in an African Chieftain ' 
called Abdel-el-Krim. feared by 
white men the length and breadth 
of Africa for his uncompronjising 
attitude toward them. 

Alfonso thought that modem 
military gadgets '-ould replace 
sound military training, tradition 
and tactics, and as a result of 
holding the Africans cheaply, 
suffered one of the greatest de- 
feats ever sustained by a mtWem 
white power in a war against 
African natives. Two Spanish 
armies were routed and one of

C^OiiOl!; S. SCHUYLER 
NEW YORK, N. Y.. Mar. 13— 
Charging that the Lend-Lease 
Bill recently passed by Congress 
means war and that war is against 
tl;e interests of the Negroes of 
the United States. represenUtive 
residents of Harlem have or- 
ganized a Negroes Against W;»r 
Committee, with George S. 
Schuyler as chairman. 

The Committee contends that 
concentration on war production, 
from which Negroes are largely 
barred, will lessen New Deal ap- 
propriations for relief and re- 
lief work from which Negroes 
have benefitted. It holds that it 
is criminal to give billions of 
dollars of American wealth to 
Britain while millions of Negcops 
are living in poverty. It calls 
England the Mother Of Race Prej-

which secured the largest per-

the branches, there happened to 
be one Japanese branch and one 
Negro branch. The others were 
white. 

The President's Trophy was 
awarded on the night of Mar. 4 
at the Victory banquet, and 
which branch, do you suppose,

romantic enough about the social

California EAGLE'S subsequent 
publication of the contents of a 
letter out of the grieved but 
grateful heart of* the indomitable 
Nannie H. Burroughs, in its Mar.

nie Burroughs, president of the 
National Trade and Professional 
School for Women and Girls, re-

that the late Mrs. E. Whitfield had 
ever left the service of her or- 
ganization." 

There has been a wave of "now 
M can be told" releases recently 
In our Negro press which has 
dishonored the fourth estate: ?nd, 
unless I'm badly mistaken, the 
public is fed up with these cow- 
ardly attacks upon the dead. We 
have a right to expect a more 
whol^aome attitude toward re- 
Iigi<6us leaders and the causes 
which mean lo much to the moral 
overtone of the Race. We can well 
declare a moratorium on these 
ghouliah-grave-plundering sto- 
nes!

ted to do an immeasurable 
amount of good and to profound-

of the Weet Coast. He has. thanks 
to the incomparable work of the 
laU Dr. T. L. Griffith, more to 
start with than a minister usual- 
ly has. The near-unanimous vote 
by which he was called, the po- 
tential length of the church's 
membenhip, its leadership possi- 
bilities and the desperate need of 
a vital religious approach to the 
problems of the Eastside add to 
the tremendous significance of 
his opportunity. We hope j he ac-

ALTADENA WORKS 

ON RESTRICTION 

Local papers have been giving 
considerable space to the ques- 
tionable activities of the .\lta- 
dena Property Owners League. 
This organization like Stewart s 
Improvement Association Asso- 
ciation, is seeking to restrict Al- 
tadena Property against purchase 
by those of non-Caucasian de- 
scent. This group claims to have 
restricted 80 per cent Of the geo- 
graphical area of Altadjnea. "here 
are some true Americans in Al- 
tadena as well as Pasadena who 
will not join in this nefarious 
scheme. Consequently their work 
has slowed uo somewhat. They 
are mapping out a plan whereby 
thev hope to have the entire city 
restricted in two years. 

Questions have been arised as 


several neighbors have nervous 
prostration as a result of the fear 
that they live under. 

Mr. Tipton, white neighbor, 
charged that this objection was 
due to -'blind race prejudice." He 
threw the present racial difficul- 
ties back into the laps of the 


purpose of the meeting, was to 
instruct the directors of this city 
as to their dut,v.

By Bill Smallwood 


(C«9rrifM-lMl) 
FdR SOMEONE VERT SPECIAL 

I know what turmoil beats about your head — 
What fe^n, what hopes of what is yet to coma. 
And that your heart, whatever lies ahead. 
Rests within mine, and knows therein its home. 
Thinking back to Sunday . . . ai an adjective, perhap* I could 
aa« spectacular ... on both tne eye and ear . . . for the mass 
meeting as put on for the third aimual time by the Tuberculosis 
and Health Ass'n (pJus the MDPA a^id the Citizens' Advisory Com- 
mittee) at Independent (magic word, that, for crowds flock there 
in amazing numbers at all times) was truly An Event . „ no less . . . 
Again, the village was out in 


full bib n' tucker, and seemingly 
LOVED it . . . nagnificent as- 
terisk (for our money .anjrway) 
was the superb singing of the 
capable-looking Carlyle Scott 
(wh o looks tres continental) 
WPA Chorus: Uosh, can they 
sing! For s O m e vague reason, 
.twas my very first time to hear 
them. I hasten to add I shan't be 
elsewhere hereafter but on the 
.fii:8t row when they sing . . . 
Hooray, here, for Dr. Robmson's 
deserving sendoff for efficient 
Theresa V. Dixon, who never 
ceases to work hard . . . Albert- 
Dent, who has long been first on 
our slim list of clever, subtle, 
yet precise speakers, captivated 


the weekend, and on Cato Rob* 
inson's arm. They made the game, 
etc. They make a cute couple, 
we oldesters agree, what with 
looking over their way ... I ad* 
mire: sensible Ben Carter's ut- 
ter indifference to his inconse- 
quential "fi Tends" who never 
miss a chance to slander him, as 
well as everybody else . . . 

Pivot: The lady at dinner, with 
a single cameba on her bag. 
Startling, as most of them look 
like a gardenia display in an ave- 
noo florist window . . . like: re- 
freshing simplicity of Rev. Karl

everyone. With his d'roU wit, he Arnaud to win tbnX prize at that 


must be a boon to a dinner party! 
In all. twas enjoyable . . . and 
nice again to see Dr. Bill Lofton, 
'vho we haven't seen in some 
few years. I believe he's Dr. Cliff 
Gordon's housegucst, for the two 
are fine old pab. . . . All con- 
nected with the event herein get 
a salvo of applause ... in fact, 
the more I think of it, Sunday 
•eemed , to be the signal for 
our long series of Sundays, 
which run well up into Fall, to 
begin unfolding^ You k n o w — 
Sunday garden parties, church 
teas, club affaire, cocktail par- 
ties, "niose affairs to which you 
hasten again to see some soul 
who you can't reach via phone. 
Vou just KNOW they, and 
everyone else in town, will be 


unique affair at 8th and San Ju 
lian on the 16th, at 3 . . . Delta 
news: Busy plamiing for their 
annual May Week. PauUyn Gar- 
ner is chairman. Deltas (they 
gave Maynor a $1000 scholarship 
once) did hope to e,;itertain for 
Maynor, but too many others 
have tne same idea. Lorenzo 
Jordan-Cole won 2nd prize in a 
students' musical contest at 
UCLA the other day. She'll be 
presented with the prize at a 
breakfast, later ... I 

Definitely deserving a top i

Royal Chancellors Talk 
About Easter Matinee 

These warm spring davs have 
caught the (Chancellors hard at 
work striving to make 1941 a 
banner year, the meetingsc are 
filled with enthusiasm and de- 
termination. 

The uppermost topic being the 
Grand Easter matinee. Sweet 
Hearts on Parade has been sel- 
ected as the theme for this event- 
ful day. Mr. Harold Lloyd stated. 
From all indications so far Los 
Angeles wUl lead the world this 
year in Fashion styles. 

Sopse of the Cancellons attend- 
ed the Ma-Po-Fi dance and ac- 
claim it as one of the bert. 
Thanks and good luck to the 
^ thre« debutantes, 


By ELLIS L. VEIL 

Fifty Angel city bridge players 
have received their membership 
cards from A. R. Curiel of New 
York City, executive secretary of 
the American Bridge Association, 
— which means that their dues 
for 1941 have been paid. Have 
you paid yours? If not, now is 
the time. Contact our secretary, 
Clyde J. Maddox at JE. 5617. 

Our bridge activities have 
slowed down just a bit during 
the lenten season. We are not 
asking but demanding that yoo 
take part in the numerous events 
that will take place from the end 
of Lent to the Championship 
time, August 17th, in Detroit, 
Mich. We are still asking you to 
plan your vacation so as to be 
able to Help represent the GWBA 
in this year's tournament. 

If you, by any chance, think 
that that mam haunts me in my 
sleep, you are right. He wins at 
duplicate; he wins at rubber 
bridge; he wins at auction; he 
even wins at progressive bridge. 
His initials are J. D. He and C. J. 
were again our North-South win- 
ners at our regular monthly du- 
plicate play Sunday, Mar. 2. Our 
turn-out was disappointing. Re- 
member, we must have a certain 
number of players if we are to 
receive master point certification. 

Here is a hand that our cham- 
pion played, writer failed to 
reach the proper contract of seven 
hearts simply because he forgot 
to use the old grand slam jonce 
which is no longer a part of the 
Culbertson system. A good bid, 
but so seldom did one have the 
hand to use it. The bidding went: 
1 heart, 3 clubs, 4 no trumps, 5 
hearts, 6 hearts. Instead of bid- 
ding 4 no trumps, I, cpuld have 
bid 5 no trumpw, then' my part- 
ner could and would have bid the 
grand slam. 

Uncle Sam's Selective Service 
took one of the Angel City's most 
popular bridge players, Mr. Clar- 
ence Provost. He looked very 
good in an army tmiform. He says 
he is proud to serve his country.

heartened," Mrs. Grayson re- 
ports, "in the way our friends all 
over Los Angeles are volunteer- 
ing to join our campaign organi- 
zation as advisors, committee 
and team members. We feel that 
this is a healthy indication that 
there is already wide-spread in- 
terest in this vitally needed pro- 
ject, which will serve as a cen- 
ter for temporary housing, char- 
acter-building and social work 
for our girls and women." 

Mrs. Grayson stated that no de- 
cision has bene reached as to the 
location of the new building, but 
that when funds are available a 
stie will be selected in the heart 
of the community it is intended 
to serve. 

Also actively at work at key 
positions in this fund-raising pro- 
ject are Mrs. Byron Kenner and 
Mrs. Dinsmore Alter, who will 
have several divisions of work- 
ers imder the supervision. A 
Special Gift committee, under the 
leadership of Mrs. Edward At- 
kinson and Mrs. Sumner Spauld- 
ing, will supplement the work of 
the division organization. 

Solicitation for funds for this 
undertaknig will be in the hands 
of informed volunteer workers 
who will personally solicit mem- 
bers and friends for their indi- 
vidual contributions. Solicitation 
will cover a four weeks' period, 
starting w'ith a dinner meeting 
of all workers at the Friday 
Morning Club on Monday, March 
24, and ending with a Victory 
banquet at the same place on 
April 21.

- tor-founder of the California Eagle, 
r stood on the corner of 9th and Con- 
trol gazing up the wide, holf-poved 
thoroughfare. He said: "Someday, 
this will be a great business meqca 
for Negroes of the West. The seeds 
of industry and enterprise which we 
plant now will flower into a great and 
booming business highway." 

With a courage equal to his faith, 
■ J. J. Neimore set about constructing 
his contribution to the "someday" of 
Central avenue's greatness. Each 
week sow some new effort on his port 
to advance the standing of his little 
• Negro newspaper, the California 
Eagle. Today there are but a few who 
remember the rugged feotures of J. 
J. Neimore and his rrame is almost 
forgotten. 

But "a man lives with his dreams, 
and each dream realized is a bit of 
immortality." What of J. J. Nei- 
more's dream-' What of Central ave- 
nue, the business mecca of Negroes 
of the West? What of the great high- 
way of black enterprise and indus- 
try ;' 

Frankly, it does not exist. There 
are sporadic, in some coses brilliant 
outbursts of Negro business along 
the Eastside "main stem," but the 
bulk of Central avenue troding is 
carried on by whites, Japanese and 
Chinese. It is true that in compari- 
son with many other black metropoli- 
tan centers throughout the nation, 
Los Angeles stands high. It is true 
tha(t our Golden State Mutual Life 
Insurance Company is the fastest 
growing black business of its kind. 
But, essentially, the Avenue is an- 
other men's mecca — not our own. 

Nor IS this an indictment of the 
many splendid white businessmen, 
who have brought huge investments 
into the Central area. Often they 
hove trained young Negroes into the 
intricasies of merchandising in sorpe 
field otherwise closed to them. Thev 
have raised institutions of worth in 
our midst, and frequently they hove 
become an integral part of the com- 
munity life. But this is not the dream 
of J. J. Neimore. 

There is only one practical wo^ in 
which the business standstill of Cen- 
tral avenue Negroes may be trans- 
formed into healthy, stimulofing 
growth. The stagnation of business 
efforts by colored people in Los An- 
geles and throughout the counttl/ is 
principally due to an absurd tradi- 
tion of restricted fields in which JNe*- 
groes may properly conduct business. 
Hair dressing, publishing, insurance, 
restaurants and barber shops, funer- 
- ol homes: we have just about run the 
gamut of Negro commercial enter- 
prise in Los Angeles. 

The ludicrous lock of simple sup- 

• pjy and demand economics in this 
system would be difficult for an out- 

. sider to believe. If one Negro opens 
a successful boqt-black stand in the 
40th and Central block, it won't be 
long before three or four of his racial 
brothers will also bring boot-block 
concessions into the 40th and Cen- 
tral block. The natural course of 
•yents ni this tragi-comedy will in- 

• vblve each "businessman" slowly 

• strangling his neighbor "business- 
rrjon." \ 

: The only sound advice which may 
be extended a young Negro embark- 
ing upon his business x;areer is that 
He discover some field in which no 
cither Negro has ever set foot in this 
.'tity. No doubt, the moment his in- 
vDsion of that r>ew field is complete 
\ dnd successful, there will be a flurry 
1^ <^f block interest in it. But the advan- 
tage of priority moy well protect him 
from such ossoults; if not, at leost 
another economic portql has boen 
opened to Afro-Arr^erjca" "^'"^"^ '^"'

YWCA Opens Drixe : 

One of the greatest social needs in 
Los Angeles over o period of years 
has been the removal of the Young 
Women's Christian Association 
stnjcture frorti 1 2th and Central Ave- 
nue to some other section of the 
community. 

That the efficient staff there has 
managed to accomplish such her- 
culean tasks in that location must 
always remain one of the wonders of 
L. A. lore. .But today the necessity 
for change has become, so strong 
that the current campaign for funds 
to build a new YW' home immedi- 
ately strikes a responsive chord in 
the heart of the city. A solemn reci- 
tation of the advantages of a new 
home for girls and women of the 
Christian Association is needless. 
Los Angeles knows the situation all 
too well. 

Vote for Proposition 1 

Proposition No. 1 on the next bal- 
lot upon which Los Angeles residents 
will vote is one of the worthiest that 
has ever been brought before the lo- 
cal electorate. It is a proposal to 
place on additional tax on property 
lo restore $340,000 of the $410,000 
apporpriation slosh which was re- 
cently administered the public li- 
brary system of L. A. 

Our liborory system has always 
been q particular civic pride. It bril- 
liantly reflected the fact that this is 
one of the most literate cities in the 
United States. It was a symbol of a 
new culure in the West and of a de- 
mocracy in operation. The arbitrary 
cut in library opppropriations was de- 
vastating in its effect. Many stu- 
dents who had used the public li- 
brary as a nightly research room and 
study hall found themselves at a 
loss to maintain their grades. Closed 
four out of seven days a week, the 
public library was fast dropping 
from the habit of Los Angeles. 

The spectacle of barred libraries in 
the face of a so-called "business 
boom" is ironic, indeed. Or ore we

this respect he is little better off 
than the wretched minority

been a bitter legend in the 
South. Our ability to maintain a

on the extent td which we absorb

publicizing the National Urban Lea- 
gue's Vocational Guidance Week. 
It says in part: 

"Today industry pleads for skill- 
ed men, tool mokers, d^e makers, 
machinists, draftsmen, welders, and 
the position of the Negro would be 
infinitely stronger if during these 
past years he hod been more sensi- 
tive to the paramount importance of 
guidance in his search for a method 
of livelihood, 

"For despite (he current color bar 
in industry, admittedly unparolled 
in its extent and viciousness in the 
history of the United States, it is easi- 
er to force the ramparts of prejudice 
when equipped by training to per-, 
form task than when totally unpre- 
pared or illy prepared to accept op- 
portunity if and when it comes. . . . 

"The assumption by counselors 
that the industrial status of the Ne- 
gro is permanent and unchanging is 
fallacious and stupid. It is based on 
a complete ignorance of changes in 
the occupational pattern of the Ne- 
gro pnd other minority groups in 
America. It is evidence thot the 
counsdors are not acquainted with 
the ditch-digging Irish or Italians of 
a generation or so ago.

Jews in the entire country. 

I assured him that I felt very 
much disturbed over this situa-

before the elders of my syna- 
gogue., whom I felt certain 
w^ld in turn botheir someone 
else. Certainly, something would 
be done and I appr^iated his 
thuoghtfulness. In spite of the 
fact that we are called "kikes." 
no Jew should call [ anvone a

I have no way Of knowing 
whether he regarded pi^ serious-

SPOOKS ABOUT? 

They db say, and in all earn- 
estness, that there is a haunted 
house on the Westsidel 

It "seems that a woman died 
in a mysterious manner in the 
house sometime ago and sub- 
sequently there have been 
some goings-on which could 
coni'pete with the Boris Kar- 
loff-Bela; Lugosi-Peter Lorre 
thrillers. ' 

Here are a few of the things 
which have taken place: 

(DA Negro family moved 
in. The members hereof were 
disturbed at night by the "cov- 
ers" being puUed off the bed. 
They moved out! 

(2> Another Negro famiiy 
moved in. Child "grabbed" 
while playing under the house. 
They, too, moved out! 

(3) A Korean family moved 
in. They were annoyed . at 
night by "choking hands" and 
windows "rising" by them- 
selves. Out they went, 

(4) The third Negro family 
moved in. The wife was "chok- 
ed" on several occasions. The 
telephone "moved" when it was 
being used. Covers "pulled" 
off at night. That was enough 
for them, too! 

(5) People living next door 
^ to the empty house heard 
' "screaming." Gas stoves went 

out in the|ir homes and chilled 
air replaced the heated atmos- 
phere. T^ey claim the win- 
dows go ■ up. and down, the 
doors open and shut and the 
curtains come down of their

A LAUGH? 

Again it hai coma to the at- 
tention of thia department — 
the practice of a local hospital 
in tabbing as "Ethiopians" the 
Negro babies. 

Of course. Haile Selassie, the 
conquering Lion of Judah, has 
his mijad on more important 
things at the moment, but we 
wonder what he would say to 
that 

In light of past and present 
l story there could possibly be 
no greater cause for chest-beat- 
ing than to be called an Ethi- 
opian. The history of this race 
of people is as fraught with 
srand tchievementa and cul- 


ture as any that could powibly 
be named. 
But . . . 

Why call an American Negro 
baby by any other name than 
American Negro? Not that it 
matters so very much what 
one U called. It Just happens 
that "Ethiopian" in thii in- 
stance is a misnomer. 

GAIffiT BITS: 

Keep an eye on Bobby 
Brooka, that 12-year old boy

BT /OHN KDiLOCH 

A talent that is intense, pro- 
vocative and somewhat raw, 
burst forth upon a' large audience 
at Birch Street Christian church 
Sunday night when Caleb Pet- 
erson, a young man fresh from 
New York's rigorous winter, ap- 
peared in a vocal-dramatic re- 
el taL 

He is the best "undiscovered" 
performer I have ever heard. His 
capabilities are so vast that one 
can lean baci: in complacency 
when considering hi« future. He 
has a voice, personality and 
amazing dramatic ability. In oth- 
er words. Young Caleb has got 
it on the balL 

This point established, we can 
proceed to talk behind his back. 
Like many less gifted dramatic 
"readers," Peterson sometimes 
submerges hia genuine filent in 
a liberal layer of pointless roar- 
ing. Now, mind you, it's not bad 
roaring (he has a beautiful voice) 
but frequently it contributes 
nothing to the delineation of 
character. He also stamps on the 
floor pretty hard, and this doesn't 
go so well in places no architec- 
turally adapted to it. These are, 
of course, passing and superficial 
objections. 

Petersons' portrayal of Em- 
Ceror Jones, from Scene 2 of 
Eugene O'Neil's famed play, was 
technically fine: although it fail- 
ed to come to life. This. I think, is 
inherent in the play, which was 
all in all as stagey a piece of 
com as the Arherican theater has 
ever produced. They say Paul 
Robeson does the role magnifi- 
cently. That he can make such a 
character breathe is fresh testi- 
mony to his genius. At any rate, 
it was a vehicle through which 
Peterson displayed a highly ex- 
pert bag o' tricks. 

A dramatic scene from Peter- 
son's ' Own brain child, "Big ' 
Robe," (dedicated to P. Robeson; l 
get it?) was more fortunate. It' 
presented a much wider scope j 
for portrayal of a rounded, hu- i 
man character, and the actor' 
played it with an essential con- [ 
viction. If is about a chain-gang i 
laborer and his conversations with [ 
God and how he loved his moth- 
r^ and killed his father. It's rath- 
er deep in the old theatrical ira- . 
dition. but that doesn't prevent I 
"Big Robe" from carrying a solid, 
dramatic punch. ' 

Peterson has mastered the 
tricks of inflection with unusual 
skill. There are few actors who 
have learned the art of effective- 
ly faking laughter. There are 
fewer still who can talk through 
that laughter. Most of them com- 
promise with a sort of grown- 
up chuckle when guffawing must 
l>e punctuated by dialogue. Pet- 
erson has the thing down pat. 

His writing is pungent, and he 
has instinctively given himself 
the lines which can be played to 
the hilt. There is one serious ob- 
jection here, however. There are 
far too many "Lords." It's not 
necessary to remind an audience 
that the conversation* is between 
Big Robe and the Almighty at 
the rate of fifteen appositives per 
second. Moderately done, how- 
ever, such ind'|3ct address adds 
a neat touch oi realism. 

Young Peterson will appear 
Sunday night at Independent 
Church of Christ in a duplica- 
tion of his Birch Street program. 
All those who were not privi- 
leged (we use it advisedly) to 
hear him last Sunday, hacl bet- 
ter make tra():s for this second | 
local appearance. Those who have 
heard him will go again, anyway.

Director Glenn Tiyon n»ver 
did know until she arrived that 
the actress had come all that way 
to report for the call. Her agent 
had merely stated that Misf Noel

"Never you mind," she said.

To the Deposijtors, investors and Friends of Tlie Liberty Building- 
Loon Association of Los Angeles, California 

GREETINGS 

It was on March 17, 1924, that our Association had its formal opening at 2506 South Cen- 
tral Avenue, near our present locatiori. We have kept openi continuously on each and every busi- 
ness day since that time. We have done regular and continuous business each day during these 
nineteen years — and with your continued support we hope qnd expect to continue to do so. 

We have served and endeavored to please and serve you — the people in our city. We ore 
still at your service. The Liberty Building-Loan Association is a Savings Institution. We accept 
money on deposit and investments from our patrons and inl turn lend it to other patrons to buy 
and build homes, moke improvements on homes already owned by them, and to refinance mort- 
gages, trust deeds and approved securities. 

We endeavor to be very conservative in investing our patrons' savings. We pride ourselves 
on hoviing hod nineteen years of experience, much of which was secured during the most varied 
and crucial period this country has ever gone through. Our patrons and investors are principal- 
ly Negroes — this is primarily a race institution, our field in Los Angeles is unlimited, thus afford- 
ing us an opportunity to secure the best possible loans. j 

Knowing our investors and our borrowers as no other similar institution could possibly know 
them, enables us to have their interest at heart as no one else could possibly do. That we can ond 
are rendering to our comnujnity a service which is vitally needed and which is unsurpassable. This 
is your institution, organized by our people for our people and for your betterment and your con- 
venience. Are you supporting it? There ore in our midst large businesses in which you may free- 
ly invest your money, and reserve your just portion of dividends, and interest. But, my friends, 
they do not belong to us, and if you hove a boy or girl whose aspirotions are higher than to be a 
messenger or janitor, there is no place in those businesses fpr him or her. 

I do not appeal to your prejudices in order to further our business. I am not prejudiced; I 
am a part of the community and all of that, but the time is here when even our enemies as well 
OS our friends think that we should take advantage of our opportunities and do something for 
ourselves. What do you think? 

If it is experience that you think we need, we hove accuired it at a very great cost of time 
and money. If it is security and stability you think we neefd, we have acquired this through gov- 
ernment or Federal insurance of our accounts. Each and e|very account placed with us is insured 
by Federal insurance up to $5000.00. Our Association is examined periodically by the State ex- 
aminers of the State of California, and by the Federal exarrjiiners for Savings Associations. We 
are members of the Federal Home Loon Bank. We are injured. We con moke any loons, bor- 
row money or transact any business that any Insured Savings and Loon Association con do. 

I ask you to THINK; I ask you to ACT. Do you not think that we ore in a position to so- 
licit your cooperation. We con be of a great benefit to yoijj as an individuoL You con help your- 
self and all of your community by promoting and supporting your businesses. 

We are paying the highest rate of in.terest obtainable n ony insured institution. In 1940 — 
lost year — we paid 4% on oil classes of accounts.! Have "AITH in yourself ond you will hove 
FAITH in us. Your Federal Government is now the largest and strongest organization in the 
whole world and we have Federal insurance on each of ourbccounts. Come in on March 17, and 
at least give us a handshake and tell us what you think.

in Behalf of Jackie Robinson 

George T. Davis, sports editor of the local Herald -Exprfw 
had this observation to make the other day: 
-AN .4BUNDA.NCE OF GCNEROSITT 

"Basketball coaches of the Pacific Coast Conference (Soath- 
em divisioai) were unnecesnarilT r^nerous to Stanford in nam- 
ing Tive Cardinals oti their all-star team — to the exclasion of 
all other playert. 

"One man in particular, Jackie iU>bi]is<ni of C C. L. A., was 
sUgfeted. 

'*lt hartUy seems logical tbat Robinsoo, who led the league 
in scoring WhUe plajing a« a tail -end ehib, should net be hon- 
ored on the all-star team. 

""Sorely, if Stanford was so good that it rated all places on

•nX'i ironical that Rabinson. the -forgotten man.' out-scored

Sam Barry (ISCi and Wilbur Johns (I'CL.A) put Jackie on the

Bat Price dnin't even put him on the third '. The Stanford.* did.

The most popular man in all 
Holywood is a couple of fel- 
lows called "Oscar"'— which is 
the pet name for those small 
statues passed out every year 
to the outstanding actors and 
'actresses. Oscar is a dummy 
who made good in a big way. 
There isnt a glamour girl in 
the cinema nty who hasn't a 
kind word for Oscar— and 
there isn't an actor who 
wouldn't like to dust off a cor- 
ner of the mantel to make a 
spot for Oscar, Ginger Rogers 
and Jimmy Stewart were 
the winners this year. It ieems 
kind of strange that the Holly- 
woodites who earn so much 
fame and money should put so 
much importance on an award 
that they could afford to buy 
by the dozen. It just goes to 
show that money isn't every- 
thing—however, on the other 
hand, no matter if you're rich 
or poor, it's always nice to 
have money. 


Highballs may look alike. 
But— they don't tvte alike. 
It's the whiskey that's poured 
that makes the difference! And 
Harry Morgan can supply you 
with exactly the right kind of 
liquor— mellow, rich and 
smooth. Just go to the House 
of Morgan, 2729 Central Ave.

its early stages without the use 
of x-ray equipment. The only 
solution to this problem is ' for 
everybody to avail th/Tiselves of 
periodic physical examination by 
a competent physician and for 
doctors to look carefully for tu- 
berculosis in every patient ex- 
amined. 

"In Los Angeles, as in many 
other places, there are not ade- 
quate facilities for the diagnosis 
and treatment for tuberculosis. 

"From the standpoint of its 
being a pablic health program, 
we think it to be a responsibility 
of the government; bat the PEO- 
PLE are the government and it 
is their responsibility to encour- 
age their ele<^ted officials to bud- 
get adequately for this great 
public need." 

Representing the East Area 
Health Program, Dr. Leonard 
Stovall, medical director, related 
pioneer work being done by this 
group, with Public Health Nurse, 
Theresa Dixon, in charge. Funds 
from the L. A. Tuberculosis As- 
sociation help to supply clinical 
needs for examinations, x-ray, 
and tuberculin tests. 

DOCTORS HELP 

Los Angeles physicians contri- 
but much of their time free of 
charge in this work. Dr. Stovall 
reported, and their interest in the 
symposium of latest deveJop- 
menU in the treatment and cure 
of social diseases was declared 
to be outstanding among that of 
doctors in other cities. 

Guest clinicians and lecturers 
for the symposium included Dr. 
Orville Ballard, of Waverley 
Hills, Kentucky; Dr. Tlheodore 
Lawless, Provident Hospital, Chi- 
cago; Dr, Wm. Lofton. Howard 
University: and Dr. Homer V.

Major Battle

160 miles nort'i asf of Addis Ab-

retreating foe. 

Rebellion affainst the Italians 
has flared up throughout the 
whole of Gojjam, according to 
dispatches reaching Cairo, The 
patriot forces gamed recruits 
from the Italian ranks when 
more than 1,500 conscripted na- 
tives, together with 2p0 men from 
other parts of Italian-held Afri- 
can territory, refused to fight for 
the Italians and deserted to join 
fhe Ethiopian patriots. 

It is reported here that the 
Ethiopian forces are pressing for 
a decisive victory over the Ital- 
ians before British troops can 
penetrate too deeply into Ethio- 
pia and thus complicate the sit- 
uation, in so far as the struggle 
for national independence is 
concerned. A number of British 
columns are noir approaching 
the Ethiopian frontiers from the 
Sudan, and from Italian-held So- 
maliland. where ^ British troops 
have the Italians' on the run. A 
strong British force is' also oper- 
ating Italian-held Eritrea on the 
northeastern border of Ethicpia.

Councilman Rasmussen 


Opens 


Compoign Quarters 


Official announcement of the 
opening of campaign headquar- 
ters at 4373 Central avenue, was 
made this week by the Citizens 
Committee to ]Je-elect Council- 
man CiTl C. Basmussen of the 
7th district. 

Members of the committee, 
which includes well known civ- 
ic, business and professional lead- 
ers of the corhmunity, pointed 
out that a very^ strong commun- 
ity-wide support is rallying to 
the standard of the Rasmussen 
forces, and that the campaign is 
well on the way to success. 

Among the many factors which 
account for thi^ support is the 
excellent record which the in- 
cumbent councilman has estab- 
lished during hik brief, but high- 
ly successful tehn of office. He 
has become knokvn as one of the 
most militant opponents of rac- 
ial discriminatofn who has ever 
held ofice in tHis city. 

"Rasmussen wbs the only coun 
cilman who wa^ sufficiently in 
terested to 


Board of Public Works and pro- 
test against the operation of one- 
man garbage trucks," said Mrs. 
Betty Hill, a member of the Ras- 
mussen Committee. 

."It has been gratifying to me," 
stated Mrs. Charlotte A. Bass, al- 
so a member of the committee, 
"to find that Mr. Rasmussen has 
been very jattentive to the wish- 
es of the "residents of this conx- 
munity and has consistently 
worked for our best interests." 

A Health CUnic, soon to be de- 
veloped on Central avenue to 
serve the entire SOuthwest, is 
one of the projects to which the 
Councilman has given full sup- 
port, and which has been made 
possible thru the splendid coop- 
eration of tihe Health Dept 

These, and numerous other 
factors, were <Sted by the com- 
mittee as meriting the re-elec- 
tion o fCouncilman Rasmussen. 

Formal opening of the cam- 
paign headquartres will be an- 
nounced laten together with a 
complete program of the activi- 


before the i ties as planned by the committee.

NEW ORLEANS. Mar, 13.— 
Roark Brandford. well known 
novelist, will speak at Dillard 
University on Maf, 18. as the se- 
cond attraction in the lyceum 
series, it was announced today. 
Although Mr. Bradford is the 
author of a number of short stor-

I with tongues in their cheeks, as 
they go merrily on their way 
denying in their own bailiwicks 
practically every fundamental 
concept of these honored and rev- 
ered documents. 

The record is crowded and 
i documented with the i>etnyai of 
these concepts ia the very dtadel 
of Democratic democracy. 

To talk about "free elections", 
'freedom of speech', 'the obser- 
vance fo the individual rights of 
every eitixen,'-- etc.; 'of liberties 
I>eing sacred, not to l»e endang- 
ered,' -'Christian dvilisatton,'— 
'Economic and politieal freedom,' 
, — and 'the preservation of civil 
: liberties for all,'~these being 
: quotations from speeches by these 
' Southern statesmen, is to expose 
' the lioUow mockery of their pro- 
testations when contrasted with 
the praetiees of that soction 
, which denies to a large elMnent

1 <ben, because of their color and 
tradition alone, practically all of 
the benefits •^f that detnocracy, 
that fr eed om, that liberty, and 
that Justice, about which they 
prattle and preach, and which 
they affect to cherish and revere. 
With most of our domestic 
problems being laid aside, un- 
solved, it is, not asking too much 
of our democracy when we urge 
that, along with the problems 
across the sea. we do something 
to solve some f them at heme.

^J^WSLE KUMMAGING thrn 

*/ ■ jrawer of old writingi 
this week, I ran across the copy 
of a radio address which I deliv- 
ered AprQ 20. 1939. At first I 
intended to glance at it only for 
a moment but soon I fouqd my- 
•elf engrossed in this foikbtten 
brainchild. \ 

The brief treatise first [point- 
ed out the inevitability of i a Eu- 
ropean war, criticizing appease- 
ment policies of Eduard Dela- 
dier and Neville Chamberlain, 
at that time t\? world's most 
important statesmen. Further 
on. I spoke of the terror of Eng- 
land's populaiton, concluding 
this section with ... "to 48.- 
000,000 huipan beings, every 
new waf headline is the hand- 
writing on the wall." 

But the part which I found 
most coini>elling followed. It 
concerned the U. S. A. and I 
quote: 

". . .We in America 4re, in 
an entirely different pos^on — 
but are not so far removed 
from actual peril as we would 
believe. There is no mass distri- 
bution of gas masks at each 
new German coup d'etat, but the 
shadow of the European menace 
falls across three thousand! miles 
of ocean and spreads acroBs the 
United States of Americaj 

"Within the past twenty yeto^ 
the nation has adopted si dog- 
ged determination NOT TO GO 
TO WAR. Ignoring facts, impli- 
cations and world tendencies, 
the great mass of American pub- 
lic opinion has decreed that 
there will be no United States 
participation in a Europeai) war. 
"However, the country's lead- 
ing thinkers are once more de- 
veloping a hieh fegard for the 
salvation of World Democracy, 
The remnants of Czechoslava- 
kian. Ethiopian and Albanian in- 
dependence come to our shores 
with the cry that the Peace and 
Future of th I planet depends 
upon the American bad bone. 
Progress in the field of aviation 
has removed a subsljantial 
amount of our remoteness] from 
actual conflict. Students i point 
out that a war in which the na- 
tion does not take oart will be 
fatal to the natior* 1 economy. 
"Then, too, let us supoose 
that England. France andi Rus- 
sia face the fascist threat and 
are defeated. What woujd be 
the destiny of America? Itiis an 
unpleasant and unwe come 
thought. One which encot rages 
great suspicion. But, nevirrthe- 
Kss, it is a vital possibility. If 
Dw new World War, which mani_ 
claim is simpty a* continuation 
d( the last one. takes l>Ia|ce in 
the near future, there is [little 
doubt that America will' stay 
out — for a while. Public , opin- 
ion will not allow us to Jnter- 
fere in European slaughter un- 
til it is evident that the Allied 
bloc is not able to take care of 
itsef. However, we predict; free- 
ly tl.at providing the Allies are 
not able to cope with the Fas- 
cist Axis. America will throw 
its might behind the democratic 
liile. Although there is much 
argument to the effect that it 
is wiser for this nation lio re- 
main neutral and beconve a last 
refuge of liberty after the con- 
flict, we fear that public opin- 
ion will not allow America to 
remain on the sidelines. 

"Hence, the youth of the 
United SUtes face the real 
possibility of participating in a 
world conflict that promises to 
Burmount the history of aU war- 
fare with chapters of new ter- 
ror and devastatoin. These fine 
young bodies and minds, these 
young men on the threshold of 
life's fullest experiences, stand 
a good chance of breathing 
I their last on some tortured for- 
eign battlefield. 

"And, also, the Negro youth 
will be asked to make this sac- 
rifice. The Negro youth, which 
lovea life with fervor equal to 
that Ql any other group, will be 
asked to give up that pric^ess 
spark in a segrcfgated unit which 
in itself is an insult to the fact 
of their American citizenship. A 
naturalized American with no 
background of 250 years in Am- 
erican life may serve in any one 
of the multivariouB di^isicms of 
the United States fighting mach- 
inery, and he may rise to any 
position. But the Negro must 
remain in units with inferior, 
equicment and inferior status. 
"The pleasant fiction that the 
American Negro is a comic fd-. 
low with no military prowess 
is consistently blasted through- 
out the nation's military history. 
It would be a good thing for 
many new Am'^icans — smug in 
their belief of racial suoerior- 
ity — to read the military history, 
of black soldiers in American' 
armies since the Bevolutionary 
War. 

"In 1917, when America en- 
tered the World War. perhaps 
tne moat colorful spectacle m 
the entire nation was the exo- 
dus of troops down famed Fifth 
Avenue in New York city. Hour 
after hour the men tramped by 
in an endless, somber caval- 
cade. Finally, as the crowds 
wilted under a burning sun, far 
off strains of a more sprightly 
tnarcfa were heard. Immediate^ 
there was bright expectation 
kmong the spectators as the boys 
from Harlem c a me swinigng 
along. Obligingly, they offeced 
(he comedy i%lief nrhich hat be- '

NEW YORK, Mar. 20— Fear ol' 
Hitler has foi.ed the British 
drop the rigid color bar and 
enlist Negroes from Africa, and 
the West Indid and Indians from 
India in the exclusive Roytd Air 
Force, according to an article by 
George Padmore in the March 
issue of The Crisis magazine. 

Not only has the fear of the 
Germans broken down the ^color 
line ih the RAF, but it has caus- 
ed the heads of British religious 
bodies, including the Archbishop 
of Canterlvury, to issue a state- 
ment to the press urging the 
wiping out of the color luie in 
all phases of British life. 

The letter urges the abolition 
of color barriers in the colonies; 
the eUodnation of discrimination 
in the hotels aod hospitals and 
the complete w^ing out of the 
color llnie in employment. 

The letter further urges the 
rather astounding step that Ne- 
groes be extended "the hospitali- 
ty of ikiglish homes in this coun- 
try." 

Mr. Padmore asserts that the 
total collapse of France was fol< 
lowed by a serious consideration 
by the British of the effect of 
then color discrimination. He 
declares that the iminent danger 
of German invasion has forced 
the British to abandon the color 
line and to welcome all defend- 
ers, regardless of race or color.

NEGRO DETERMINED TO 
FIGHT OPPRESSION, 
SCOTT WRITES 

|H« Is "Spcoking Out \goinst Godt of 
Prvfudicc and Racial Discrimination" 

By EMMBTT J. SCOTT 

WASHINGTON, Mar. 20.— A few months ago, 
the American people were in the midst of o bitter 
presidential compoign. Both candidates were ex- 
horting the people to trust their^ 

pledges, their promises, their as- 
surancea. 

It was a penod of tumult, of 
shouting, of great emotionalism. 

Nerves were taut. Much bitter- 
ness abounded. Tempers flared. 
The short and ugly word found 
use nearly every day. Excitement 
was rhnninc high. 

Ib tbe midst of all this turmoil. 
with botb parties biddiog for it-> 
sapport. the .Vf;ro groap found 
itself •verwhelmed by a great 
oseertainty a5 to what the fntnre 
heM in store for it and as to the 
Marse it should follow. 

With relief — continued relief — 
Olfered by one candidate, and 
jobs, ^jobs, by the others, this Ne- 
gro group oscillated between the 
tm-o great parties, trymg to reach 
• wise decision. 

■Undoubtedly, it was a per:od 
tn which a well-considered, long 
range decision could not be 
reached. The agitations of the 
hour prevented that rela.xed st jdv 
and contemplation the subject 
deserved.

And then cam* tne National

preparations, the hiring uf thou.s- 
ands and millions of ra«n — sure- 
ly. It was thought, the day of 
industrial — employment-redemp- 
tjon had come. 

But. no. The ,>ame old or 'u- 
dices and discriminations were 
trotted out. or rather con:in':f^d. 

And t-hat is why Kear"-.-\me: ica 
IS so bestirred at thib time. That 
is why cur representative rrcn

They are refusing tu i mpro-

to msist in this ho«ir of national 
peril that these rank preiud.ces 
be subordinated to national »e- 
curitv. and that their cause be 
considered akmc with tiie propi- 
tiations hern? mad^ to organized 
and unorganized labor and ofher 
class groups. 

They know that access to em- 
ployment in mdustr>-, financed 
by Government for national pre- 
lervation should be made as sure 
for them as for these other 
groups. 

They know that Negro man- 
power IS being conscripted by 
Government, and fhat. if the 
worst comes, the blood of their 
youth and young manhood will 
be as freely' spilled as by others 
called to Army service. 

They know it is rank msult to 
be telling them to be "good." and 
all of their troubles will be end- 
ed, their problems solved after 
the emergency passes. 

They know that th^ same "ap- 
ple sauce" was offered them 23

Judge Orfa Jean Shontz, who* 
for the last five .years has pre- 
sided in the Small Claims Couyt, 
has been unanimou^ praiised for 
her work by Presiding Judges of 
the Municipal Court 

Former Presiding Judge WUbur 
C. Curtis states; To a person un- 
familiar with small claims pro- 
cedure and the efficient manner 
in which this court has been con- 
ducted by Judge Orfa Jean 
Shontz during the last five years, 
it must seem almost impossible 
that so many cases could be dis- 
posed of in one day in a court 
pi*esided over hy ortly one judge. 

"The number of Small Clsiims 
cases that are actually tried in 
this court averages 100 cases a 
day, and have amounted to as 
many as 158. Judge Shontz' ad- 
ministration has been efficient 
and satisfactory. During the en- 
tire history cf the court, no other 
judge has sat, in xhis dipartment 
f]r so long a time."'

Th<* B'»nnett resolution further 
called for expenditure of funds 
from the secret service account 
in ordc- to obtain evidence. This 
was«iiefeated by certain chauvin-

(Tto ▼i«WB and eoauB«nti in this rtii(ioiis eolnoui are tlioee of 
the writ«a-, who has won distinetioii as a palpltMr and stndent of 
roUgloaa and social problems. The CalifonUa EAGLE aasomes no

aaytUnf he writeg as worthy of thoafhtfnl consideration. His 
iwtee rings with tlis clarity of a tme prophet and he belongs in 
'saeeeMlaB.''— The Editor.) 

"^Colored People will be coming 
to our churches soon to preach 
the doctrine of racial solidarity. 
Their one continuing text could 
well be: "Rights won must be 
ably defended." Christians in all 
of our churches should never be 
so anxious as now to show their 
faith by their works. The NAACP 
is America's first line of defense, 
and the privilege of making that 
defense Impregnable should be 
enthusiastically embraced to the 
tune of thousands of member- 
ships, 

A. W. DENT. SUPERINTEN- 
DENT of the 

hospital, in his address at the 
Third Annual Health Mass Meet- 
ing recently, praised the minis- 
ters of the local churches and 
complimented the sponsors of the 
meeting that they had their sup- 
port. Let's make this attitude 
unanimous! Let's have the good 
sense to appreciate the excellent 
ministers in many of our pulpits 
and quit some of this foolish 
"church-baiting." ou would bet- 
ter support your ministers. If 
you keep them strong, powerful. 


"WILL TOC HELP SAVE A 

BOY?" So ends the fervent plea 
of one ol the recent appointees 
working out of the District At- 
torney's office in last week's is- 
sue of the California EAGLE. 
There can be little doubt of the 
natural response to that query, 
even from those who may not 
have funds to contribute. But all 
of us have a right to ask for a 
bill of particulars, and to wonder 
where these ardent individuals 
were when the mqst practical 
and best esquip>ped institution yet 
developed by serious students of 
social problems in America was 
appealmg for "boys' member- 
ships" in our recent city-wide 
YMCA Enrollment. It is quite 
easy to get all steamed up over 
s^al problems, but not so easy 
to build effective chai-acter- 
building agencies to correct 'hese 
maladjusted personalities. It 
would probably be well for even 
the District Attorney's office to 
survey the possibility of using 
the present excellent facilities 
of the 'Y^CA before embarking 



AME BISHOP PAYS 
GLOWING, WARM 
TRIBUTE TO STELZLE 

Warm, Fertono! Friend of Late Churehmon 
I Who Loved and Worked for Humanity 

'■ f By R. R. WRIGHT JR. 

Bishop of the AME Church 

My 'phone rang, and a voice in New York said 
to me in Louisville, "Dr. Charles Stfelzle is dead." I 
was so shocked, it was several seconds before 


re- 


covered my proper composure. I"^ 
was assured that it was THE Dr. 
Charles Stelzle, my friend and 
humanity's friend. 

Had Dr. Stelzle died two years 
ago, I would have, of ^course, ex- 
j pressed deep regret, for I would 
! have felt a personal loss. 'WhUe 
I had known him many years, 
Flint-Goodridge it was only after I became active 
in the Good Neighbor League in 
1936, and had every day contact 
with him, that I came to value 
his friendship and trust his ad- 
vice. Many hours we spent to- 
gether discuss |ig the Negro race, 
its history, its hopes, its aspira- 


"You see, I want so much to help. 
For I realize that there can never 
be Democracy in this country, to 
say nothing about Christianity, 
unless all peoil? have the oppor- 
tunity, and inclination to do their 
part And the colored people, as 
we all know are pushed farthest 
bock." 

I cannot refrain therefore from 
writing these words of apprecia- 
tion of him, who loved humanity 
— one of God's noblemen — and 
to express the hope that the col- 
umn he started so brilliantly in 
Negro and Labor newspapers all 
over America will be continued 



tions, struggles^ disappointments, j ^^ s^^^^ne who will feel moved 


on a new Ea.Mside project seek- ; influential, you will make your 


ing to accomplish the identical 
thing for which YMCA's here 
and all over the world have as 
their major objective. It may be 
worthy oC a joint conference. 
Upon this one thing we all 
agree: we must save our bovs. 

BOYS' DAY IN THE CHURCH , 

is the name of a celebration be-

YOUR COLUMNIST IS A 
P.^CmST; and oftimes he is 
misunderstood when making such 
a statement, simply because the 
world "pacifist" has fallen upon 
bad times and his been in bad 
company recently. Surely we 
need to .fcover its anginal 
meaning. T'/- word "pacifist" 
comes trom two Latin words 
"j>ax" and "facio" and means 
"the maker of peace.' Tins was 
its significance m the thinking 
of Jesus when he said: 'Blessed I 
are the peace^ijikers for theyj 
••shall be callV the children of | 
God." It IS 1 --strong word, call- 1 
ing for thf maximum in intell«e-. | 
tual and moral stamina. Too ' 
frequently have we confused it 
with "passivi.st. ' The word "pass- ' 
ive" eome$ from another Latin 
root altogether, 'patior. passus 
sum" meaning "to submit" — "to 
go along with." It doesn't take 
much straight thinking to see 
that these two word.s are miles 
and miles apaM. We need mil- 
lions of "pacifists" in our world 
today, and can well do. without 
the "passivists." 

THE YOUNG WOMEN'S 
CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION has 
opened its drive for a new build- 
ing here. That is the most heart- j 
ening news story written in Los 
.\ngeles in years. This Negro 
branch deserves all the money 
we can give it. It has gone about ] 
its work in an effective manner | 
in the past few years. Its ad- ! 
ministrators have taken the 
long-range view, and while this 
view did not lend itselT to the 1 
spectacular— It did prepare a ' 
new generation capable of ap- i 
preciating the physical expan- 
sion now proposed. The patient ^ 
and faithful loyalty of Girl Re- 
serve leaders and the Girl Re- 
serves, many of which met in 
our churches, has been beautiful 
to watch. Those of us who have 
cooperated with them will feel 
ministers of this city have put 
this project on their church cal- 
endar for presentation and sup- 
port on the fourth Sunday 
this month. __«.„,.

self strong, powerful and influ- 
ential. The WATCHTOWER sees 
this cause and that cause — this 
organization and that organiza- 
tion to say nothing of hundreds 
nf individaals coming Sunday af- 
ter Sunday seeking help for ev- 
ery imaginable thing under heav- 
en and patronizingly saying nice 
thing? about the church and its 
leadership. But no sooner has 
their cause been sped on its way 
that these sponsors forsake the 
altars of religion and leave its 
survival to "the faithful." Let's 
keep pur churches strong through- 
out the year by our personal and 
regular attendance and support. 
The masses have as much right 
to expect the day-by-day support 
of the classes — -as the classes 
have a right to expect the sup- 
port of the masses. Let's be done 
with this exploitation and get 
down to the real business of 
working hand in hand, day in 
and day out. That's "thirty" for 
this time. God love you. 


Divine Puts Up 
Dough to Keen 

Out of Jail 

NEW YOPK, Mar. 20 (O — 
A $12,000 b'*ci yesterday saved 
Father Ehvine. Harlem cult lead- 
er, from an extentfcd stay in 
Manhattans county jaii. Divirejsaid 
walked into Sheriff Daniel E. 
Finn's office shortly after nmrn 
and posted the bond to guarantee 
his presence in New York foi 
the next six months. 

The bond — or jail — was order- 
ed by Supreme Court Justice 
Philip J. McCook because Divine 
has failed to pay a $5949 judg- 
ment obtained against him last 
year by Verinda Brown, once an 
"angel" of Divine's flock. 

Verinda accused the cult lead- 
er of refusmg to return money 
and personal effects she gave 
him. 


successes, etc. He came to Ameri 
ca as an immigrant of poor par 
ents. 

He knew the hardships of New 
York's East Side, poverty and the 
struggle of so-called working 
element. A machinist by trade, 
he early joined the labor union 
and fought side by side with his 
fellow workers for better condi- 
tions. But he was interested in 
the souls of the workers as weU. 
He became a preacher. He or- 
ganized a wo-;kers' church, the 
Labor Temple in New York, and 
interested himself in all phases 
of labor improvement. He became I 
advisor to the Federal Council I 
of Churches in Christ in Ameri- 
ca on labor conditions. Then he 
became interested in the Good 
Neighbor League, and that was 
when I met him. and soon dis- 
covered something in htm with 

which I fell in love. 

He was so quiet, so simple, so 
kind, so genuine, so much in- 
terested in lit- things in which 
I was interested. Long hours I 
spent telling him the story of 
my people and long hours I lis- 
tened tq him tell the struggle of 
Labor, ^nd his hopes for a better 
world. ' 

I went to Africa: we corres- 
ponded: I returned and saw his 
name in man.v colored newspap- 
ers. Upon /is invitation 1 went to 
talk with him m his New York 
office, and in his quiet way he 
told me of his hopes. "I want to 
help if just -some little bit." he 
said, "to inform, perhaps inspire. 
Negroes arc citizens: they are 
Americans. They should think 
American, thty should act Ameri- 
can, makp that their habit." he 
lo me for pertlaps the 
twentieth time. I told him how I 
had read his articles in sixteen 
papers tliat week, and he seemed 
pleased. 'Do you think I am writ- 
ing the ri?ht things?" he asked. 


to take up the task which Charles 
Stel7le has so well begun and 
has left unfinished. 


Rev. Anita L. 
Edmonds Returns 

Rev. Miss Anita L. Edmonds, 
pastor of t h e .Universal Evan- 
gelical Church, 1008 E. 29th St. 
retufned to the 
city this week 
from Oakland, 
Calif, where she 
enjoyed a love- 
ly rest period 
with the Rev. J. 
Edward Mo- 
Corkle, and wife, 
long standing 
friends of the 
young evangel- 
ist. 

Rev. Edmonds Kindness shown 
to this minister by t h e Mc- 
Corkles can never be forgotten, 
and as a result of their great 
stewardship over the church 
(Zion) in Oakland, Miss Ed- 
monds enjoyed the surroundings 
of a new parsonage, and preach- 
ed in one of the most beautiful 
churches in the state. 

It was with reluctancy that the 
people of Oakland said goodbye 
to Rev. Edmonds as she boarded 
the Southern Pacific Owl for L. 
A. Sunday evening at 6:45 p. m. 
They insist that she return and 
conduct a revival at some early 
date. The pastor resumes h,er in-

subject: "Give God A Chance." 
You are welcome.

Tower Spiritually 
and Financially 

Sunday was a gala day in St, 
Paul. The morning service was 
very good. Many visitors were 
present, even in the Sunday 
School. At 11 o'clock, assistant 
pastor E. A. Anderson was the 
speaker. He, in his usual dy- 
namic manner, delivered a mas- 
terful message from Acts 12- 1 
subject, "A Praying Church." He 
cited many biblical references to 
answered prayers. The after- 
noon service was the observance 
of the Men's Day program, the 
theme being "The Church and 
National Defense," This was 
treated in a very splendid man- 
ner by the speakers. 

The financial part of the pro- 
gram was very satisfactorily car- 
ried out, the striking feature be- 
ing a "dollar bill parade" 
which every man 


in 
participating 


celebrated with a dinner last 
Thursday evening at the home of 
Mr. and Mrs. Eh Simmons, 1517 
East 5Hh street. A beautiful 
birthday cake made and donated 
by Mrs. C. Mann, a member of 
the choir, graced the center of 
the table. It was appropriately 
inscribed and bore one candle. 
The choir was organ ied in Feb- 
ruary, 1940, by Mrs. Roberta 
Payne, who is its present direc- 
tress. This dinner was the* fourth 
of a series of monthly dinners | 
that the choir is sponsoring to 
finance the purchase of robes. ' 

had a bill pinned on the lapel of 
his coat, and placed it on the 
collection table as he passed in i 
the procession. 

The evening service was short 
but uplifting. Elder E. A. An- 
derson was in charge in the ab- 
sence of Pastor S. A. 'Williams, 
who was resting after a strenu- 
ous day. Our second assistant 
pastor, i. S. Langley, wtii the 
speaker of the hour. He brought 
a very thoughtful message from 
Psalms 8:4. subject: "Man's Pos- 
sibilities Under God." His exe- 
gencies were pregnant with food 
for thought. 

We are urging all members 
and friends to avaail themselves 
of the opportunity of hearing Dr. 
Harold Rusthoi. of the Four 
Square church of Long Beach on 
his return engagement to St. 
Paul next Sunday, Mar. 23, 3 p. 
m. Do not fail to hear this sup- 
ernatural man of God. 

S. A. Williams, pastor; S. E. 
Buxton, reporter. 


cond Baptist church Sunday 
heard the announcement of ac- 
ceptance by Rev. J. Raymond 
Henderson, noted New York pre- 
late, to become the next pastor of 
the historic local institution. 

Delay in Rev. Henderson's re- 
sponse had been a topic for wide 
speculation in religious circles 
here, although his acceptance did 
not come as a surprise. 

Pastor of fashionable Bethesda 
Baptist church in New Roche! le, 
N. Y.. Rev. Henderson is known 
as one of the outstanding young 
Baptist ministers in the nation. 
A graduate of Virginia universi- 
ty, he has attended OberUn col- 
lege and Newton Theological 
seminary. He has had charges in 
Philadelphia, Charleston, West 
Virginia and Atlanta, Ga. 

Without a regular minister 
since the^ paasing of Rev. Thomas 
L. Griffith, Second Baptist has 
been regarded as one of the most 
desirable vacancies in the nation 
Under Rev. Griffith's brilliant 
leadership, the church has risen 
to a position ol eminence in 
Western religious affairs. 

Rev. H. A. Foster has carried 
on as minister-in-charge of Se- 
cond Baptist since the death 'of

Second Baptist's militant 
Booster's club held its first regu- 
lar Thursday evening businesa 
meeting of the season at the 
church here recently. 

A Booker T. Washington pro- 
gram, to be arranged by able

discussed in full. A noted speak- 
er has been chosen for the occa- 
sion, with music to be furnished 
by two weU known choirs. T^e 
affair is scheduled for April 4 
in the Second Baptist church. 

Plans were also pondered for 
the Booster's Annual Tea and Fa- 
shion Review. Mme. MozeUe Ta

casion. It is to be held May 1 in

Five whites, abov«, ttanse of them students from the Univer- 
sity of Oklahoma, were te«hliically placed under arrest and later 
forced to appear before Oklahonu's litUe Dies C*iiiinlttce recent- 
ly, when they applauded a sharp retort of Editor Hoscoe J>unjee, of 
the Black Dispatch. When queried by Committee Chairman Joe 
B. Thompson, as to his knowledge of the Bill of Rl^ts. Dunjee ad- 
vised the chairman, "I may not be able to recite all of the Bill of 
Rights, but beinf a Nefro ( know Fm not ;cttin( the benefit of 
them." 

In the picture can be seen the arrested students being sworn 
in in the Senate Lounge, at the state eapitol. Dunjee is seen reclin- 
ing in the chair looking up at the excited whites. 

Editor Ounjee, a member of the executive coniraitt«e of the 
Oklahoma Federation for Constitutional Rights was being examin- 
ed along with other members of the Federation who were under 
charge of having radical tendencies. The Kn Klux Klan scattered 
leaflets in the capitar building during the hearing endorsing the 
investigation and denouncing the sivil rights group.

Thr: President Soys: 

An a speech whtch is his most in- 
spiring effort to dote. President 
Roosevelt Saturday wqrned the dic- 
tators of Europe and Asia tViot the 
United States is "both united and de- 
termined that the right of oil peo- 
V pies to live their own lives in the way 
they themselves choose shell be 
maintained." 

This is a noble statement uttered 
by our president, and we commend 
him for it. Of late, we have heard 
much about making democracy 
work. We realize that President 
Roosevelt is busy, and we ore cog- 
nizant of the fact that the people 
who are sent to Washington from the 
48 States to make the laws that gov- 
ern us are also busy. But it does 
seem, if this nation expects Europe 
and Asia to Consider such d, state- 
ment seriously, it must first be made 
true here. 

Certainly our governing heads, 
both in Washington and the States, 
must know that 16,000,000 block 
Americans are denied full citizen- 
ship rights. That even now, as we 
prepare to help Britain save the 
world for democracy, black Ameri- 
cans must fight to fight. 

Without any compunction of con- 
science, it seems, we bleat about the 
United States Army and the United 
States Navy and its holy mission all 
over the globe. Yet this great demo- 
cratic. Christian force perpetrates 
the most vicious discrimination 
against a group of American citizens 

whose only offense is their color. 

I 

We ask our President, our Repub- 
lican, our Democratic parties and the 
American people,— will democracy 
w^rk smoothly so long as 16,000,000 
loyal Americans ore socially ostra- 
cized, industrially brow-beaten and 
legally os well as physically lynched? 
"The right of all peoples to live their 
own lives in the way they themselves 
choose," is a dynamic statement, and 
something ought to be done to re- 
move It from the class of pure 
irony. 

"Opportunities in the 
Imperial Valley" 

The bound files of the Liberator, 
"a weekly newspaper devoted to the 
cause of good government and the 
odvancenrfent of the American Ne- 
gro," which was published in Los An- 
geles about thirty years ago, came 
to the attention of the editors this 
week. They turned out to be one of 
the most significant "finds" that 
hove ever sent up a cheer in our edi- 
torial offices. 

To those familiar with these col- 
umns, it is no news that one of our 
firmest convictions has been that ths 
destiny of the Negro in California is 
* found in its rich valleys artd fertile 
plains. For over sixty years, the 
EAGLE has pounded home that mes- 
sage. 

Topic at a recent meeting of Ne- 
groes protesting civil liberty infrac- 
tions Xras "Discrimination and Seg- 
regation in Imperial Valley." An 
article from the Liberator files 
throws tragic and bitter light upon 
this situation. It also carries out our 
"Back to the Earth" argument rather 
magnificently. We quote from the 
May 10, 1912, issue of the Lib- 
erator, edited by J. L. Edmonds: 

'The opportunities offered cpiored 
men to acquire homes in the Imperi- 
al valley ore without parallel. All a 
man ne^s is a desire to have some- 
thing, coupled with a wMWngness to 
work. Land is cheap and wages ore 
high. Farm laborers receive from $2 
to $2.50 per day; womini, $20 to ^30 . 
per month; cotton picfcers receive $) 
per hundred for picking cotton. Lost 
season a woman arid her three girls 
earned $1 1 per day picking cotton; 
. there ore many instances of the kirkJ 
omoog the cotton pickers. 

'The land is cheop ond sold on 
terms so eosy that ony mon or wo- 


men desiring it, can own a home and 
become independent. 20 acres of 
land con be purchased for, from 
$1500 to $2500, a small cosh pay- 
ment down and the balance in three 
to five years. The land is in a high 
state of cultivation with on abund- 
ant supply of water. The soil, which 
is hundred feet deep, is the richest 
on earth. One man con cultivate 40 
acres of cotton, which is suKe to pro- 
duce 40 to 50 boles. The Imperial 
Valley produces the finest known 
staple cotton on earth and will hove 
to furnish the world's supply. The 
agricultural deportment at Wosh- 
ingjs urging the Imperial farmers to 
plant only long staple cotton where 
possible, so that seeds con be produc- 
ed in sufficient quantities to stop the 
cultivotaion of short staple cotton. 
'There is land enough in the val- 
ley to support a population of two 
millions. The people of the valley ore 
anxious to hove colored cotton farm- 
ers come in. Buy the land and de- 
velop the cotton industry, which is 
bound to moke millions for the pro- 
ducers who own the soil. For the over- 
worked, poorly paid cotton farmers 
of the South, the Imperial Valley of- 
fers opportunities nowhere else to 
be hod. While wages ore twice as 
high as those paid in the South, the 
cost of living is no higher. In the 
South, the cotton farmer works 
twelve to fourteen hours a day. Here 
they work ten to twelve hours. 

"Every colored- farmer who goes 
to the valley and buys o form will 
fin J ready employment at $2.25 per 
day on adjoining forms for all of his 
spare time. 

"If colored farmers would take ad- 
vantage of the opportunities offered 
them in the Imperial valley, there is 
no time to lose. When the Panama 
Canal is completed, millions of for- 
eigners will come in and possess 
these lands and not only double the 
prices but take them permanently 
off the market. 

"Every neighborhood has its gram- 
mar school with nine months terms 
where each child con be properly 
educated. 

"For information, see G. W. Wick- 
liffe, J. L. Edmonds or Jitus Alexand- 
er, room 210 Thofpe BIdg., Los An- 
geles, Calif."

(Fnun the New York Amster-

Uncle Saih wants 25,000 young 
men for training in the air corps. 
Iliis appeaji has come through 
the press and over the radio. It 
has been most urgent- Yet when 
able-bodied, well-trained Negro 
applicants present themselves 
for this seijvice they are turned 
down on oile pretext of another, 
but in most cases with the blunt 
statement that, "We don't hire 
Negroes.' ' 

What we would like to know 
is just why aren't Negroes want- 
ed? Jwst what is wrong with the 
Negro technician and others who 
are ready .willing and able to 
shoulder their share of the na- 
tion's burdlen in this hour of 
trial, when, according to Presi- 
dent Roosevelt, every man is 
needed in the effort to build 
hemisphere idefense. 

The claim that whites and Ne- 
groes cann'St work together is 
plain bunk. They can. "This has 
been proved in Harlem and in 
other sections where department 
stores, taverns, theaters and oth- 
er enterprises have employed 
members of both races who, in 
turn, have gotten along splendid- 
ly. It has been proved in Holly- 
wood and Broadway where Ne- 
groes and whites have worked 
together in pictures and on the

if Negroes would take up the chal- 
lenge of California's untilled miles 
and untouched fertility. This is 1941 
— and there is much less time to lose. 
But it is not yet too late. There ore 
still thousands of square miles in the 
State which may be converted into a

Broadside on Broody: 
Why? 

For the past two weeks, a local 
throwowoy newspaper has been con- 
ducting what appears to be a cam- 
paign of personal vilification against 
Officer Chprles Broody, who has 
served on the Los Angeles police 
force through two tempestuous de- 
cades without great protest from 
law-abiding residents. 

This newspaper has conducted no 
investigation into the merits or de- 
merits of the individuol accusations 
:ited against Broody— at their worst, 
they imply only that the good of- 
ficer is not the gentlest of citizens. 
It is regrettable that such persecu- 
tion should suddenly be launched 
against on old and trusted servant of 
the city. Certainly Broody has his 
shortcomings — as we all do — but he 
has committed V no known crime 
against his bodge or corrupted any 
word of his policeman's pledge. He 
is the unfortunate victim of journal* 
istic abuse, the kind of abuse whith

State Boords 
Tetl Meeds 
of Youth 

,By BOBERT E. BROWN, JB. 

Aaahfamt Div. of Yoath Peraouiel 

NYA for Callfomia 

The National Youth Adminis- 
tration recognizes group as well 
as individual needs. It has confi- 
dence in the ability of members 
of its staff to participate in solv- 
ing our common problems. But 
problems and needs may differ 
according to the facilities of in- 
dividuals, groups, and commun- 
ities. Therefore, National, state 
and local advisory boards have 
beai organized throughout the 
country. 

The advisory boards help de- 
termine the most desirable type 
of youth program for the state 
or community; and offer propos- 
als for the development and the 
execution of %e program. An- 
other important serviee is to 
promote community interest in 
work-experiences gained by the 
youths. 

There are twenty-three states 
in which advisory boards compos- 
ed mainly of Negroes give val- 
uable information on the needs 
of our youths. Dr. Mordecai John- 
son, President of Howard Univ- 
ersity, Washmgton. D. C, serves 
on the National- Board. In many 
communities there are local 
boards and planning committees. 
Occasionally, citizens who have 
made surveys on special prob- 
lems are invited to meet with the 
boards and contribute informa- 
tion. 

In California, the Siate Ad- 
visory Board, includes eight civ- 
ic-minded people who are famil- 
iar with the problems ol Negroes 
in a variety of fields. Augustus 
Hawkins represents the law mak- 
ers. Floyd C. Covington brings to 
us valuable informatici on eco- 
nomic conditions. Dr. W. R. Car- 
ter travels throughout the state 
on missionary work and helps us 
to see the needs of rural com- 
munities. Mrs. Jessie Terry is 
our autho^i^i; bn housing condi- 
tions. Mrs. Baxter Duke knows 
the facts on juvenile deimquen- 
cy. Mrs. Fay Allen represents 
education. Miss Dorothy Gwynn 
is working with youths in the Y. 
W. C. A. and C. L. Dellums keeps 
us advised on the labor situation 
throughout the state. Prof. W. A. 
Easter of Los Angeles and D. V. 
Allen of San Diego have been 
invited to discuss special phases 
of race relat Ins. 

"The Oakland. California, ad- 
visory board includes civic work- 
ers from nearby Berkeley and 
San Francisco. TW membership 
clubs, recreation, labor, and 
health. Those who give advice 
and information are: Mrs. Fran- 
cis Albrier. Miss Lulu Chapman, 
Mrs. Terea Hall Pittman. H. T. S. 
Johnson, Jr., C. L. Dellums, J. 
R. Rose. E. S. Thomas and Dr. 
F. M. Nelson. 

NYA values the cooperation of 
these committees and realizes 
need for advice on the many 
problems of youth.

Negroes with complete satisfac-'>beore they really get started in 


tion, suddenly finds that same 
Negro objectionable as soon as 
they reach the South end of Cen- 
tral Park. \Vhy? It is obvious 
that the whole attitude is creat- 
ed to prevent Negroes from mak- 
ing progress, to keep them from 
getting better jobs, to keep them 
from enjoying the fullest meas- 
ure of manhood by making them 
feel inferior. 

Indeed, some progress has been 
made — that is, here and there 
by sheer force of his own intelli- 
gence and ingenuity some Ne- 
groes have been able to rise to 
new heights, but in the main 
the masses of Negroes are as bad

Delinquent Youth, ' 
Who's to Blome? . 

(from Oie Lonlciaaa Weekly) , 

As much as we hate to admit 
it our city is over-running with 
delinquent youth, hanging around 
beer shops, gambling joints and 
running loo^e on the streets. 
They range in age from the very 
young to the adult period, then 
they oease to be delinquent ad- 
ults, if we may use such a term. 

Just as the adage goes tiiat 
criminals are not bom but made, 
delinquent youth are not deter- 
mined by the fates. Instead, they 
have reasons for being. What are 
the reasons for our teaming 
hordes of delinquent youth, who's 
to blame. 

"Eveiy boy, in order io deve- 
lop physically, mentally and 
morally needs to be ^iven such 
essentials as adequate recreation 
and a decent home with sympa- 
thetic and imderstanding par- 
ents," stated the superintendent 
of the Milne Boys' Home. Taking 
into consideration the lack of 
adequate re*eationsd facilities 
available to Negro boys of the 
city we can understand the great 
disadvantage Negro youth are 
up against; but to think that 75 
per cent of our youth end up in 
homes for delinquents taxes the 
imagination. Worse still is the 
fact that forty-five percent of 
this number come from broken, 
below-standard

life. 

For much of the delinquency 
in children parents -are to blame. 
Many mothers keep their chil- 
dren out of school days at the 
time on the mere ^adow of ex- 
cuses: running errands to the 
grocery, keeping the baby, wash 
day helpers, minding the house 
whUe parents are out, and pay- 
ing collectors — are all taken from 
the list of flimsy pretences 
blocking regular school attend- 
ance. 

These obstacles in the path of 
correct guidance, added to the 
many other serious disadvantages 
suffered by the majority of our 
boys and girls are all but cri- 
minal on tlie part of tmthinking 
parents. 

Until we reach the i>oint where

Now that short skirtt are in 
vogue, the dam things can be SO 
unattractive if too short, and 
even more imattractive if the 
wearer does not have a well- 
formed figure and attractive feet 
and legs. The way to determine 
whether your figure is well pro- 
portioned, according to an article 
that appeared in Good House- 
keeping magazine: "There should 
be an eight to ten inch differ- 
.epve between the measurements 
of bust and waistline, and the 
hip should not exceed the bust 
measurements by more than two 
or, at the most, thret inches." 
The article fowever, states the 
measurements will be out of line 
unless your weight is normal for 
your structure. 

"For those who want a stream- 
lined Hollywood figure, there is 
a simple rule worked out by 
Lou Hippee of Warner Brothers. 
It is the rule of the Wrist. Ac- 
cording to him, tile waistline 
should be four and one-fourth 
times the -eirctmiference of the 
wrist, and the hips should meas- 
ure exactly six times the wrist." 

"This rule is practical for any 
type of figure, because it does 
allpw for differences in bony 
structure. If your frame is large, 
your wrist is likely to be large. 
If your bones are slight, your 
wrist is usually slender." 
WANT TO LOSE SOME 
WEIGHT? 

A friend of mine who was ov-

drink as much water as you like. 

Another friend of mine went 
on a one day diet and loat pounds. 
She drank one pint of ^ape- 
fruit juice for bre^&fast; one 
pint of unsweetened grape Juice 
for luncheon; and one pint of 
sauerkraut juice juat before go- 
ing to bed. No water. However, 
I cannot assure you this is safe 
and would advise that you con- 
sult your physician before trying 
it; although my friend has never 
suffered any wnsatisfactoty re- 
sults from it^

If you have flat feet, weak or 
fallen arches, they can be helped 
or cured by rolling the foot back 
and forth over a Coca Cola bot- 
tle. Place the bottle ao that the 
neck will be on the side of the 
arch and roll your foot «o that 
the toes and heel will touch the 
floor. 

Another relief for tired feet, 
which also strengthens arches, is 
standing on a book witti vour 
toes over the edge. Bend the" toes 
downward as far as you possibly 
can. Pidking up marbles with 
your toes is another' way to cor- 
rect foot ailments. 

Did you know that a lot of fa- 
tigue, pains in the back, hipt, 
knees, legs and thighs are caus- , 
ed by flat feet and weak or fall- | 
en arches.

CJentlemen: 

The shameful reversion to sav- 
agery which recently took place 
on the campus of Fremont High 
school, in the form of the lynch- 
ing in effigy of six Negro stu- 
dents, is a disgrace to the Los 
Angeles School System. Any

The fact that your Board has 
seen fit to condone this "mock

voice in protest, should be suf-

The beginning of large-scale 
help to Britain under the lend 
and lease program has swung 
the vgrbal guns of the Axis pow- 
ers against the United States,

ing a striking resemblance to the

hardly deceive anyone, even 
though their sole purpose and

willing to bet my neck that the 
difference as to standard of liv- 
ing either way as far as a flee

It's a fact that the darker Fre- 
mont High students wear as 
good and as clean clothes as their 
white school mates. Ask any 
shoe or clothing dealer about the 
quality of wearing apparel the 
Afro-American purchases. It 
would do a lot of good if these 
a'nti-Afro-Americans would lay 
aside their instilled race hatred 
aad visit the homes of dark 
neighbors. They would find out 
that about 98 per cent of the 
darker race's ambition is to live 
in a better enviroment.. By ask- 
ing the banker or the public re- 
lations department, he'd find 
that the colored student's par- 
ent and the student himself 
spend about 99 per cent of their 
income on wholesome food and 
a decent place to lay his head. 

And you need only step a few 
blocks to Central avenue on Sun- 
day — or for as that, matter, any 
day — to be convinced that the 
darker race, too, is interested in 
better citizenship and better com- 
munity life. You will see largt 


the ether hand, that such aid 
will only prolong the war be- 
cause, presumably, the supplies 
will reach her. The intensity of 
this verbal bombardment, for all 
its inconsistency, is in direct 
proportion to the. importance 


^ing she had spent considerably 
more than the sum asked. Italy 
requested that she be p>aid ap- 
proximately a quarter of a bil- 
lion dollars in twenty-four an- 
nual installments. Germany, the 
other ertswhile partner of Fran- 
co's Spain, has also been attempt- 
ing to collect for services ren- 
dered, not in cash, but in bases 
for airplanes and subTiarines. 
Neither nation has succeeded to 
date. Italy's failure to collect will 
mean that of all the war enter- 
prises the hapless Duce has en- 
gaged in since 1935, not one has 
in dividends save in misfortune 
and defeat.

Purcell last week fixed the cost 
at $28,500,000 a sum amounting 
to more than one-third the total 
of all motor and fuel taxes paid 
by Califomians last year. It was 
with good reason that State En- 
gineer Purcell emphatically urg- 
ed that the cost of constructing 
a defense highway system should 
be borne by the Federal govern- 
ment. Defense needs should be 
equitably shared by the nation 
as a whole. California herself 
totally lacks funds for this pro- 
gram, and motor vehicle owners, 
already paying a special defense 
levy in increased fuel taxes, are 
scarcely in a mood to be singled 
out from all other citizens to 
carry the load of still higher 
gasoline or diesel taxes. Nor does 
it seem fair to require them to. 
If the State Legislature heeds 
the expert advice of the state en- 
gineer, it will look to Washing- 
ton, and not to a minority of Ca- 
lifornia citizens, to answer the 


case, and call upon the Board to: 

1. Set up an imoartjal fact- 
finding committee, representa- 
tives of students, teachers and 
members of the Negro communi- 
ty, to prepare a factual report of 
the "mock lynchings" at Fre- 
mont High school. 

2. Provide adequate opportuni- 
ty for public reports and discus- 
sion of the reports of this, and 
any other interested citizen com- 
mittees. 

3. Discipline, including dis- 
missal from the school system, of 
teachers or students responsible 
for the "mock lynching." 

4. Adequate schools — admission 
of students to all schools and 
courses. 

These are merely minimum 
steps necessary to begin to re- 
medy the situation. In addition, 
it is necessary immediately to 
provide courses in the school cur- 
riculum to eliminate the basis for

Dear Editor: 

The anti-fascist refugees in the 
concentration camps of France 
are living in extreme misery. 
They die, or struggle hopelessly 
On, lacking food and medicine, 
even the most primitive comforts. 
They live neglected, penned in 
windowless barracks of decaying 
lumber, surrounded by mud, de- 
void of a stir I of furniture. At 
the Camp of Gurs alone, there 
are 15 to 25 deaths every day.

of survivors. 

Yet some <"> these men and wo- 
men have hope to be rescued, 
and they can be rescued. The In-

obtained emergency U. S. visas 
for over 200 of them, and more

The anti-Alro-American gang,

should realize that Afro-Ameri- 
cans and Caucasians alike pay 
equal taxes on their incomes,

- Determined to make a factual 
surrey of the Negro consiuner 
market aad the various trade 
commodities ■'ordinarily affected 
by it, more than 25 district sales- 
mea representing many business- 
es buckled down Monday night 
at a meeting called by George 
Mosby, acting chairman of the 
trade and commerce department 
of the Eastside Chamber of com- 
merce. 

Wmiam Bell Graham, member 
of the sales promotion depart- 
mait of the Pabst Brewing com- 
pany in the firm's national head- 
quarters at Chicago, was the 
principal speaker.

^every salesman should be better 
acquainted and informed about 
the product he is selling than 
any other person. In this wise 
and no other can a penaa sell 
the superior quality of his emr- 
ployer's product. 

The speaker condemned the 
practice of power or pressure 
poUtics in getting employment, 
especially where those respcoisi- 
ble do not go further and insist 
upon those so hired turning in a 
full day of employment. Gra- 
ham said the system usually re- 
sults in the job^holder selling 
race sympathy rather than his 
employer's product, or that the 
person is merely "hired" as a 
method of paying tribute to a

There were several state- 
ments on the card which at- 
tracted our attention. 

If the amendment fails it 
mtans reduced library service. 
shorter hours, etc. It means 
'•lack of books for building 
tolerance, reason and justice"," 
said the card. 

"Books are among our best 
allies in the fight to make de- 
mocracy work," was another 
assertion. 

Under the statement. "Why 
your library needs a yes vote," 
was this: 

"The library must support 
41 branches and 60 stations to 
serve a -eiiy territory greater 
than the combined areas of Chi- 
cage, Detroit and Cleveland." 

We have spent a lot of time 
in i>ast years in libraries, most- 
ly as a mattertf necessity. We 
either spent it there or flunk- 
ed. We got in the habit and 
have never had cause to regret 
it And so it won't be unusual 
for us to give a needy library 
a vote come April 1.

BeHIND3eSCENCS 



By HABKT LKVETTE 

Everything has been slowed down to a walk here on the coast 
^^|t by the constant rain that poured down incessantly except for brief 

intervals for over a month. Outdoor filming — absoUit^y necessary 
in spite of the late«t departures in indoor shootih^— just couldn't be 
done; night life was enjoyed only by the boldest. Even the churches 
have been near deserted during some of the worst ^orms. Re> 
ligion cannot witt)^stand everything. 

Now if it's O. K. with you, I'll stop right now and give you the 
inside lowdown onwhat is going on at the studios, leaving gossipy 
cha«t9r, till the last £that is if there is any room left). 
oOo oOo ^ oOo 

Now in th« Cutting Room : 

Umversal's "The Lady From Cheyenne"; Cast: Loretta Young, 
Robert Preston, Edward Arnold, Gladys George, Frank Craven, 
Jessie Ralph, SUnley Fields. Samuel §. Hinds, Willie Best Produc- 
er-Director, Frank Lloyd; Assoc. r»^.. Jack H. Skirball. . . "The 
Flame of New Orleans"; Cast: Marleu* Dietrich, Bruce Cabot, Ro- 
land Young, Mischa Auer, Andy Devine, Melville Cooper Eddie 
Quillan, Laura Hope Crews, Frank Jenks, Franklin Pangbom, Ther- 
esa Htrris, Clarence Muse; Du-ector, Rene Clair; Producer, Joe Pas- 
ternak. '< 

Also "The Black Cat " and "Hit the Road." Besides Theresa Har- 
ris as the si^eming "Clemeritine" in "Flame of New Orleans," and 
Clarence Miise as butler, many colored atmosphere players worked 
in this Story of 1941.

Orson Wells, Richard Baer, his production assistant, and Perry 
Ferguson, art director, will leave New York for Mexico City in mid- 
April for conferences there on Welles' next RKO Radio picture, ac- 
cording to word received here from the youthful stage and screen 
producer. As yet untitled, the coming feature will have a distinct 
south-of-the-border back^ound, according to present plans. 

Wells has been busy rehearsmg the Broadway stage production 
of 'Native Son," based on the best selling novel by Richard Wright. 
The play, with Canada Lee playing the lead and many of the Mer- 
cury Theatre players in supporting roles was prepared to open 
Mar 16. v

Wolf" was the only cast mmeber engaged. « j 

Edmond Kelson has completed the screen play of "King of the 
Zombies" based on the original treatment by Al Martin.

Trained Seal Kisses "Rochester" in Roach Pic 

One of the hammiest performers in Hollywood, one of the most 
urelass "lens lice" in motion picture work is Slicker, a seal. 

"You cannot push him away from m front of the camera, " says. 
ij.i tramer-owner, H. W. Winston. "He knows what it's all about." 
Slicker's latest picture is the Hal Roach mystery comedy, "Top- 
per Returns,' in which he develops a powerful affection for Eddie 
(Rochester) Anderson. He plays with him m the water, finally 
plants a wet, whiskery kiss on his face. 

In "Topper Returns, " as in its predecessors, a ghost provide* 
; ost of the comedy

"Scattergood Pulls the Strmgs," which Jerry Brandt will pro- 
iuce for RKO Radio release, went before cameras last Monday.

"Lady from New Orleans" at Republic 

Jacqueline Dalya had to cut short a honeymoon trip with 
writer William Conaelman, Jr., to report to Republic Studios for 
the second feminine lead in the John Wayne-Ona Munson picture, 
■Lady from New Orleans." This, like Universals "New Orleans" 
film will necessitate colored players to make the story authentic. 

Count Bosie Bock in May for Columbia Film 

After appearing as guest star on the new Benny Goodman 
commercia on NBC recently, Count Basie, the sepia "Jump King 
of Swing" departed with his band on a cross country road tour that 
will land the Basie crew in California early in May. While on the 
West Coast the Count may star in a feature musical productoin for 
Columbia Pictures, the story of which would be buUt around his 
own life. Enroute to California during the next three months or 
so the Basie band will be playing theatres, ballrooms and college 
proms from Buffalo to Denver. Basie is scheduled for an engage- 
ment at the Casa Manana Ballroom in Culver City, Calif, late in the 
Spring. 

Meantime, March 28, the Count opens for one week at LoeVs 
State Theatre, New York City.

"Take My Life" Roils Mor. 25 

"Take My Life," new patriotic and hospital all-colored cast

production by Clifford Sanforth for Consolidate Film release. Leo

"men and women in white" scenes. 

The "Harlem Tuff Kids" featured in the new melodrama have 
been re-christened "Harlem's Dead End Kids."

Erma Robinson, whose name, through a misprhit, was given 
as Erma Washmgton m Universal's "Flame of New Orleans," made 
quite a hit in the stage play, "A Stranger Passe?," at Indepnedent 
Church recently. She is very ambitious.

Caleb Peterson 
Voice Impresses 

Appearing before a targe au-

Here from New York for Hol-

society. He was the only Negro 
who made the Forensic finals and

Hear Hollywood read our line 
aimed at Mary Martin and twas 
quite a bit of talk anent it . . 
well, tliat's elegant, and we hope 
La Martin gets around to writ- 
ing us a note— a hot note. . . 
Gordon Croques, Oakland fight 
promoter, is hot in the collar at 
Uncle Sam. When he wanted to 
volunteer they turned him down 
because he was unfortunate to 
be a colored American. Now they 
want to draft him and he's rais- 
ing hell. . . Uncle Sam can't 
think up an answer for him, or 
the 12,000.000 sepians, as to why 
they have to be jim-crowed even 
in defendj|ig this country. . . and 
if you thing most of the draf- 
tees are clapping in hi^ glee, 
you're dopey. . . a year lopped 
off their plans is mighty tough. . . 

Style note: Those drop-seat 
pants as won by Joe College 
never fail to stim us into sUence 
. . . If you've wondered why 
both Anderson and Maynbr stop- 
ped at the same downtown hotel, 
this is why. Hurok has his art- 
ists use. the same hotels around 
the country so they can always 
be contacted, plus being safe 
from well-wishers, etc. . . Bask- 
etball interest is higher this sea- 
son than last. . . 'What happen- 
ed to Calloway's coming to 
town?. . . Is it true about John 
Bur-Ton having a hard time of 
it these days? ... If you'll watch 
a flock of chickens you'll soon 
set an idea as to the inspiration 
for those ribtickling bamyd car- 
toons which Simms Campbell 
does. 

PuMle, how some theology 
school* can turn out grads who 
can't speak even -fairly good Eng- 
lish. . . Urge: To ride pell-mell 
thru those tree-lined Pasadena 
streets blowing a boat whistle, 
scattering firecrackers and a 
flock of nude girlies pedalling 
bikes like maddd. . . oh, well. . . 
Too bad sepians can't get mot-

Rene Seeks Burke 
to Record Tune 

Negotiations are under way to 
secure Ceelle Burke for another 
Leon Rene recording. The com- 
poser has a tune, "Sleepv Old 
Town," written with Johnny 
Lang and Lew Porter. Rene was 
the composre of the hit ditty, 
"'When the Swallows Come Back 
to Capistrano," and it was 
Burke's recording of this number 
which brought it to America's 
tention. 

The time for the other side of 
f#e new record, if a deal is con- 
summated, will be one of Burke's 
own compositions, "Lost With- 
out Your Love." Heretofore, this 
orchestra has been doing sweet 
times on recordings, but uiis one 


will be done in the torch style 


Rene's Hymn Is 
Lauded By Holy

The 20th Annual Convention 
of the Holy Name Union of the 
Archdiocese of Los Angeles, con- 
vened last Sunday in the audi- 
torium of Catholic Girls High 
school with the Right Rev. Msgr. 
Michael O'Gorman, presiding. 
The meet was highlighted by the 
presence of the Rev. Harry C. 
Graham. O. P., National Director 
of the Holy Name Union, who 
delivered the address of the day. 

Leon Rene, noted composer of 
''When the Swallows Come Back 
to Capistrano, "Sleepy Time 
Down South," and more recently, 
"Chapel in the Valley," was in- 
troduced and very briefly relat- 
ed how the hVmn which he is 
about to infrct'uce was written. 
The work. 'A Hymn to St. Odi- 
lia,' was sung by Edward Short, 
member of St. Odilia's church, 
and the accompaniment at the 
piano was played by Rene.

Willi i. CULLEN FENTRESS 


FtOM Boxer to inspoctor (in No Easy Lomom!) 

Clarence McFadden, fine lookinc and 26 Tean of ace iriw ■ 
known in boxins circles as Benny Wilno, came to tte dak Hm 
week with his face wreathed in smiles. 

Although we were familiar with his career throuch Bany 
Levctte, who used to occupy this sfwee, we had never met the 
prize fighter. 

McFadden, or Wilson, as you choose, was pretty handy with 
his dukes from 1933 to 1939, fighting as a middleweight in most 
of th* nng» of California and the coast. 

A little over a year ago, February of 1940, McFadden took the 
examination for State Athletic Commission Boxing Inspector — 
and pa^ued it: So far as is kno«-n, it was the first time a Negro, 
West of the Musi&sippi. had been so successfully ambitiotis. 

Early this week Chief Inspector Willie Ritchie inftxm'rd Mc- 
Fadden of his success and conuni&sion approval and told him that 
as his first assigrunent he had drawn the "Tu^ey" Thompson-Bob 
Pastor heavyweight utanic Monday night at GOnaore Field. 

Happily married and the father of a youngster of g, McFadden 
lives at 105« E. 24th street. 

' Having come up the hard way. as the saying goes, McFadden 
just now comes into his greatest usefulness. This column wishes 
him the best of luck. 

A Democratic and Courageous Stond 

Brought "to a head" because of rules which kept Lowell Stew- 
ard, one of its basketball aces and former Jefferson High and L. 
A. City college great, from competing in the Kansas City Play- 
offs, the following editorial appeared in El Gaucho, Santa Barbara 
State College newspaper. 

For the past two years Steward has been either the leading 
individuaJ scorer of the Gaucho basketballers or up among the 
leaders. He accompanied the Staters to Kansas City as a man- 
ager but had to seek other companions one* the Gauchos were 
there. 

The editorial, titled ""Tournament Race Restriction .\rouses 
Student Indignation," follows." 

The stndeau of the college, throagh giviag geaeraasly of 
both time and Bsoney, ftnaUy raised the ■ (c sa wr y •■• thoa- 
saa4 dollars to send their basketball team U the aatioaa] tmmt- 
■ey ia Kansas City. 

"This year'i.tcaai certaialy deaerred to go; they deserved 
the honor sliowa to then by the stodeats who worked so hard 
aad eontribated so mnch to send them •• the trip. They have 
goao, BOW, and are repay iag the stadeato by their favorable 
showing. 

"Wheo anjoBo has worked hard for a place oa aay team or 
la any orgaaization, and has been admitted to that team or or- 
gani-iatioa, it is emel aad anfair ta deay hiat the fmits of his 
victory beeanse of race or color. That is what has been doae 
hi the ease of the Kansas City toaraaaaeBt. 

[Would Lift Discriminatory Rulos in Athletics 

"Once before the school was called apoa to participate ia 
aa athletic coatcst which held the same raec rcstrictioas. The 
school did not eogage ia that eoatest kccaaac of eaapas feelings 
on the subject. Saa Jooe State was ealled apon to play in the 
Kansas City toamameats, bat she rcfased bccaase her colored 
players woold aot be allowed to eagage. 

'*SanU Barbara Sute college has gained aational recogai- 
tioa through the play-offs: let as gain more roeognitioa as one 
of the first colleges to refuse ta engace ia aay collegiate activi- 
ty deayiag colored stodents the right to participate. 

"It is the desire of Buay that a eoaeertcd drive kc audc by 
a namber of the colleges who are oMmbers of the asMciatioB 
to lift these diacriaiiaatory rales. One editorial eaaaot aecoa- 
ptish this, but if this collecc shows its attitadc on the sttaatioa. 
it k to be hoped that other coUeges might follow sait If aoay 
of the teams engaging ia the Kansas City play-offs refased to 
participate unless ail members of their teams could be allowed 
to play, then wnb« action would have to be taken by the Na- 
tioaal Basketball associatioa to keep the play-offs aational ia

Elizabeth . King. Defendant. 

The people of the SUte of Cali- 


Most of us are always wishing 
for some goal which we feel we 
will never quite reach. We fail 
to realize that deeply embedded 
in each of us. is a force which wc 
seldom utilize — Will Power. 

Looking back thru history, 
one finds that all famous men 
and women were noted for their 
aggressiveness and persover- 
ance: their undying loyalty to 
an ideal, and, an indomitable will 
to attain their end. The f:nal 
outcome proVed .>uccessful for 
them. 

We too, can profit from this ob- 
ject lesson by applying this psy- 
chology to our own de.sires. 
With steadfast adterance to vour 
wishes, and the exercising of 
your innate powers of concentra- 
tion, you will find yourself suc- 
cessful in obtaining many of thf 
t%ings you have previously wi.ch- 
ea for, but never felt you would 
someday secu re. 

Are you faced with a difficult 
problem in your daily life: and. 
don't know which wav to turn 
for help? {f so. a wav is now at 
hand. Send a letter to Prof Her- 
man, who. thru the medium r>f 
Astrological Science, will prove 
of helpful assistance to you Don't 
delay; write tod,Tv 

Dear F'rof Herman — I am so 
glad to say I certainly have had 
good luck since you havr Honf 
so much for mc .And f wish to 
say thank you and thank God .or 
making it possible for me to iind 
such a friend ' ■ vou. From linie 
to time you \' / b" henrini! from 
me and mv frir-nds. Your work 
is really WONDERFUL. Yours 
truly. E. T. 

G. M. — Sometime ago I ans- 
wered an ad for writing som>^ 
poems. Later I found out that 
the poem I had .submi'fed was n'- 
right and I was sent an agree- 
ment that upon the oayment of 
S3S.00 mv poem would be «et to 
music. Do vou think i* wise 
for me to send the monev* 

Ans. — I strongly advise your 
investigating the companv fui- 
ther before sending c^nv mon-y 
to them. Any publ'.^hing corr- 
pan in vour own r'.tv will be abl'' 
to give you enough information 
and perhaps offer some tvpe of 
securitv so that i'' vou ec th-u 
with the deal, vou need not be 
afraid I f los'nsr vour money. 

C. F. T— I have noticed n 
certain change m nv wife's at- 
titude towards me'' Is there anv 
connection betwefn this party I 
have in mind and her** 

Ans. — After giving vour ques- 
tion careful consideration. I find 
that your wife has been spend- 
ing a great deal of time w'th 
this oreacher, but she doesn't 
aooear to be interested in anv- 
thing but 'he wf>rk connectet! 
with the church. Her chance m 
attitude towards vou 'las erne 
from your lack of attention -nd 
ccnsideration for h'T. If vou 
check UD on vour ov.ti behavior 
you will 'vnd 'he cause of this 
trouble and rf the change in her 

C. B. n I cm veiv digu'-ted 
with mv oi/blem a% a step-moth- 
er. What do vou suggest that T 
do' 

Ans. — M>- "sycho-Mentalist 
Crystal reveals th"- situation tiat 
exists in vour home and T can 
readilv see whv vou .ire desoon 
dent. But T suggest ti^at you h=ivp 
a little more patience with these 
children, as you must reali?" 
heir attitude toward vou was not 
completely their own idea. Some- 
one else had heen talking to 
them, and pu I e evil thoughts 
into their min^ Don't give up 
now, as vou ^\ -^ rircady m.ade ,i 
big change in f^e home and 
brought a great deal of happi- 
ness into their lives. They will 
show their appreciation as they 
grow older. 

M. L. H.— Will I have an oo- . 
portunity to attend college after 
completion of my High school 
course? 

Ans.— It is indicated that vou 
will receive a scholar^hin, be-" 
cause of your scholastic achiirve- 
ments and # nir high average. 
Continue thi= good work thni- 
out the remainder of your life. 
and success will come to you. 

F. H.— Dear Prof. Herman- T 
received my Charm 3ag last 
week and it has made 'hingsa a 
little different. Several incidents 
have occured that have h?Dpen- 
ed that have caused me to be- 
lieve this man really loves me. 
since I heard from vou. I wish 
to thank vou for your kindness 
and express my pporeciation of 

• helo. 


your wonderful advice and helo 
R R Jr.— Do you think I will 
do any good if I open a radio 

shop' , , 

Ans.— Accordmg to your lucky 
sUrs and guiding olanets you are 
capable of operating such a shop 
because of /or experience m 
radio work and the studv vou 
have made of radio chemistry. I 
suggest that you complete vour 
plans for such a shop st once. 

L. T.— Can you give me any m- 
formation concemini? the .,e"'P: 
tr beer case and bottV of oil that 
was stolen from my back Porch 

An*..— It appears to me tnat 
some children that live t" votff 
neighborhood stole these things. 
They saw them on the h»r'< norrh
