writingt represent an open 
conspiracy agaiiaist the peo-

Pegler'i Auriist 27th essay

this column seditious and 
will heartily join any demand 
ealling for Pegler's immed-

Pegler's vilification of Ameri- 
can war aims may be viewed 
as an attaclc upon the Negro 
since he has chosen to pooh-pooh 
the solemnly established war pol- 
icy of ihO' United States govern- 
ment as a deliberate lie designed 
to hoodwink "other races." I 
think we may include ourselves 
among those whom Pegler would 
fool concerning the nature of the 
war. It is important to the Neg-

can prevent Southern Represen-

General situation in the tax ' 
fight is as follows: 
1— The Senate passed a bill last ' 
week giving all soldiers in the ;

without poll tax limitations. 
I Th? bill must be passed in the '■ 
House, where there isn,t a quor-

I bill has been before the Comm- 
ittee for the past two years and i 
I there has been adequate time ' 
I for all parties to be heard. 
{ 3 — The House Geyer bill is still 
held in the House Judiciary Com-* 
mittee, chaired by Texas poll tax^ 
er Hatton Summers. There re4 
main only 18 signatures ont of a

committee and on the floor for a 
vote. ' 

The fight for the passage of the 
Pepper and Geyer bills wilj 
reach a climax in the next 
month and a half with the re- 
turn of Congressmen to Wash- 
ington. Every effort should be 
made now to reach Congressmen 
and Senators so that this es.sen-

1$ Surprise 
Forty Honoree 

One of the year's unique, real, 
and genuine surprise parties was 
recorded on last Wednesday even- 
ing when Mrs. Estella Broady, 
wue of retired police officer Chas. 
S. Broady, wallced into a group 
of 100 friends and relatives who 
were waiting in the spacious din- 
ing room of the Dunbar Hotel to 
greet her with "Happy Birthday 
To You Dear 'Stella'". So quietly 
and cleverly did her husband 
plan the affair that the sighting 
of a Jap Zero over Los Angeles 
could not have caused her more 
complete surprise or utter as- 
tonishment. Momentarily Mrs. 
Broady stood transfixed, but, aft- 
er regaining her composure, she 
sauntered in and out among the 
tables bestowing a kigs here, a 
pat there, mingling both with 
pleasant rebukes. 

Among those present were Mr, 
and Mrs. William T. Green, par- 
ents of Mrs. Broady; Mr. and 
Mrs. Wiley T. Broady, parents of 
Mr. Broady; Mr. and Mrs. Wil-

crowd, which gathered to honor 
the pastor, Rev. D. C. Austin, and

Dick Turpin, Retired Navy 
Hero, Picks 1st Seattle Sailor 

SEATTLE, Wash.. Sept. 3.— 
Dick Turpin is a chief gunner's 
mate, retired from the navy in 
191B. After Pearl Harbor Dick 
crushed off the old uniform and 
Tied to make the grade again, 
Dut there wasn't a chance. 

Commander H. J. McNulty at 
:he recruiting station did this for 
lim. though. • Dick was allowed 
'o pick the first colored sailor en- 
listed for combat duty, to kind 
of take his. placje. -He picked H. 
J. Rudisell, a likely looking Se- 
attle boy. 

Rudisell will be a fine sailor- 
man if he fills Dick's shoes. Dick 
rates two side-boys when he 
comes aboard ship. Dick rates 
the starboard gangway. Dick 
rates a salute from the President 
of these UnTted States. For Dick 
Turpin wCars two Congressional 
Medals of Honor. 

Turpin swaggered through the 
gallant adventure Story that was 
his life in sea boots, cutlass in 


There was the young Dick in 
sail, cap'n of the forrard top. or 
steering by the wind in the main 
tops'l. Streaking up the rigging 
or heading for the Horn and be- 
ing blown back to Africa, and 
eating cracker hash twenty-one 
times a week. 

On a night in 1898 Dick was 
blown out of his hammock by an 
explosion. A second lacerated 
him terribly, j. third blew the 
ship apart. Despite injuries, 
Dick saved the life of the cap- 
tain, C. D. Sigsbee. The ship was 
the Maine and that was Dick's 
first medal. 

There was that thunder of guns 
at Santiago when Cervera made 

er for the second time in three 
years. Dr. Morris made a pro- 
found impression upon the mul- 
titude assembled from every sec- 
tion of Northern California and 
from points as far away as Los 
Angeles and Pasadena. 

The eloquent. and dynamic vis- 
itor whose great grandfather, the 
Rev. Charles Satchell, was one 
of the founders and second pas- 
tor of the__church 87 years ago, 
stirred the c-owd Sunday morn- 
ing when he delivered an im- 
passioned message from the 
theme: "What the Years Take 
and Bring." There were few 
dry eyes in the jammed auditor- 
a run for it, and the flaming ; ium when he concluded and 
wrecks of Spanish ships: Turpin ' there were numerous accessions 
was there. Turpin crashed the to the church. 


Standing in the pulpit of the flag-draped and flower-bedecked 
Third Baptist church of San Francisco, Dr. Charles Satchell Morris 
II, of Los Angelet, was greeted by an overflow throng last Sunday 
morning when he delivered the7 
90th anniversary sermon in Cali- 
fornia's oldest Baptist church.

Forbidden City of China with 
the Tommies and Krauts in the 
Boxer rebellion; the United 
Statej was a world power. 

There were native sharpshoot- 
ers in the palm fronds of Apia 
and the deadly swish of long- 
bladed knives. Dick made that' 
one. too. 

In 1905 the Bennington blew 
up. Dick saved two officers and 
seven men from the water, then 
returned to the ship, dived into 
the blazing boiler room and sav- 
ed ten more, some by pitching 
them through the hatch. His 
second medal. 

In 1914 the S-4 sank in 400 feet 
of water off Honolulu. It was 
the first 'J. S. major submarine 
disaster. Dick was the diver. 

Turpin crawled up the streets 
of j^ra Cruz and hot lead whap- 
ped on the sun-baked flags about 
him, but Turpin squinted down 
the rifle barrel carefully and 
squeezed the trigger ever so 
gently, just like he did it on the 
rifle range. 

Then he retired, but came back 
to ride the convoy lanes in World 
War I. 

Then he came home to be mas- 
ter diver at the Bremerton yard 
until thye retired him. too. 

Today there is a thunder of 
guns in the Pacific and Dick Tur- 
pin is seventy-six. He wished 
Rudisell luck wistfully and sat 
staring out the windows of the 
station long after the clatter of 
feet faded from the halls. 

Yes, sir. Rudisell will be one 
fine sailor if he fills Dick's shoes.

It You Foil to Read THI CALIPOPtNIA lAGU You Moy^Never Knam It Hoppened 



It has'bcen proven time after time to the American 
people and especially to the Americaxj N^o. by the more 
militant and progressive press, that there is a large, strong, 
fascist, defeatest clement in our country and that it is 
against the Negro people. 

The fascist plan against the Xegro people is a part of 

•nd terrifying plan^ 

a (igantic 

i^dmMt the United States gov- 
enunent, its policies «nd its war 
effort There tre many striking 
examples of this visciouji ele- 
ment which proves, and very sig- 
nificantly, its purpose. Let the 
fact* speak for themselves.

ia a full grown and easily

Dixon of Alabama is out&tand-' 
ing in his particular field. He 
had the unmitigated gall to re- 
fuse a defense contract, and bas- 
ed his refusal on a clause, con- 
tained in the contract, which stip- 
ulated against discrimination. He 
put a veritable dent in our war 
effort by limiting production and 
limiting the employment of Ne- 
groes. Its' not very clear Sow a 
man like this can sleep with him- 

Another incidiFnt in Georgia. 
An attorney, and a very noted 
one; rises to "address a large ga- 
thering and tays, "^ince there is 
a National Association for the 
Advancement of Colored People, 
there should : be a national asso- 
^^■eiation for the preservation of 
white suprertacy." Undoubtedly

ed" master race who would

There are many other signifi- 
cant examples of the V. S. Hit- 
lerites, Representative Rankin, 
although he was floored, tried 
desperately to suppress Uw rights 
of Negro soldiers m Congress. 
The Scottaboro Case in Louisiana 
is a milestone for Fascism In the 
United States. The defeatist 
press is rampant. Just read the 
New York Daily News, the Clii- 
cago Tribune and the Hearst pa- 
pers. And you don't have to look 
far to smell Pegler. Poison Pen, 
aliaa Westbrook Pegler. is a ro- 
dent of the highest degree. An 
intellectual one. He writes. Scur- 
ryinf to do his masters bidding, 
he pooh poohed (in his column 
iviiieh quit* a few good Ameri- 
cana read) the Atlantic Charter. 
Mr. Pegler, in his paw scratch- 
jttnn «»id, "It is only a piece of 
(the Atlantic Charter) and 
propaganda for the other 
Creatures like this turn 
nSoog men's stomachs. 

Bat die Negro people ^re not 
entirely ignorant of these facts. 
They are ^he strongest anti- 
faacist group in the nation. 
They were the first to bring to 
light the natnre of the defeat- 
ist parpoee. Tliey were the first 
to identify the fascist plot 
against the policies of the Pres- 
ident The Negro press has 
been recognized as more tiian 
capable to identify the fascist 
indiTidnals in oor eeontry. 

Every Negro newspaper, even 
the weaker ones, iaw the stu- 
pidity of the British government 
in clinging to ' its imperialistic 
policy m India. They were the 
only mass section of the people 
of the United States, together 
with the labor movement who 
recognied the Indian crisis as a 
threat to the Allied Nations' war 
effort. They saw through the 
jstortion of facts and the fascist 
lies that such a policy was 
the Atlantic (Charter and 
ad no business being a part of 
an anti-fascist war. 

There are many militant »nd 
progressive Negro groups thru- 
out the country who are strug- 
gling for e<5ual rights and by do- 
ing so are battling the forces of 

fascism. They a^ not split be- 
cause there is a 6neness of pur- 
pose, but they are diversed and 
scattered, disunited in sporadic 
groups and ineffective. 

TLere is only one hope tor 
coordination, not only m tlie 
Negro people bat in the whole 
war effort. The labor "nore- 
ment can wiraTel tliis mase of 
entanglehicnts and can bring 
t*gether all of these small 
groups into one great force 
with but one thought and par- 
pose, the defeat of fascism and 
all it stands for, and with on- 
limited power to sncceaafully 
prooecntie tliis end. 
And labor, as always, is mov- 
ing. In a recent conference of 
the UAW (whose secretary is a 
Negro) one of its most important 
adopted resolutions was in re- 
gards to Negroes. The joint ac- 
tion of the CIO and AF of L 
southern unions in branding Tal- 
madge and Dixon as traitors to 
the United States »re sure signs 
that a great change is taking 
place, and that a unity will come 
out of it the likes of which the 
world has never seen. 

These are not the only two 
cases, there are thousands thru- 
out the nation. The labor move- 
ment is relentlessly engaging the 
enemy in every way. shape and 
form. Here in Los Angeles the 
significance of this was seen. At 
a meeting held under the au.*- 
pices of the CIO Anti-Discrimi- 
nation Committee, fighting reso- 
lutions a g a i nst discrimination 
were accepted: future meetings 
of that calibre were planned. The 
people were begged to organize 
and unite themselves with this 
more effective group. Negroes 
and 'Mexicans, the most ODoress- 
ed minoritv eroups of California. 
were urged to merge their force? 
with those of each other and to 
unite m the labor movement. 
Power can only come thro 
nnificatioD and onification can 
onir eome about through the 
labor movement. Lahor itself 
is .rtrivinr for unity. Tnity ne- 
rotiations late in September, 
between the CIO and the AF

marines and commandos have 
set a new world record for strong 
men; they would put fellows like 
Jesse James, and Billy the Kid 
in kindergarten with a lady 
teacher to wipe their noses and 
put Superman in charge ot pour- 
ing tea . . . The natives on the 
islands thought the marines were 
the Texas Rangers, but it turned 
out that the Japs were the only 
ones seeing stars . . . The Japs 
have got a new one now. They 
say the marines, are hopelessly 
marooned on the Solomon Is-

parently haven't .learr.ed hey 
are marooned. They have just 
gone right on making mincemeat 
out of the Japanese as if every- 
thing were under , control . . . 
This '"hopelessly marooned" gag 
IS a good one to remember. May- 
be Tokyo will start using it as 
an excuse when we take over the 
Imperial palace of the Sun of 
Heaven. (Course this is just 
talk I ... It might make a good 
slogan for the marines, whenever 
they wipe out a bunch of Jajw. 
they might report back to their

we will know that our side h'« 
won another big victory ... It

Attorney as Municipal Judge 

Governor John W. Bricker of Ohio had the courage, the con- 
viction and the opportunity ... so on Wednesday of last week, he 
joined the increasing ranks of great Americans by appointing a 
Negro. Atty. Perry B. Jackson of^ 
Cleveland to the Municipal Court 
judgeship vainly sought by Negro 
leaders in OJiio for more than a

Bricker signed the commission 

At Columbus. Wednesday, a

'Man on Aiyiorica's 
Conscience' -- Must Go! 

Planned for early release is. a new Metro

•"The Man On America's Conscience," 
which is supposed to tell the story of the 

For the Heroes of Bo toon 

Last week's decision in a Los Angeles 
Superior court upholding a propert\- res- 
triction covenant which will deny a Negro 
and a Filipino family the right to live in 
property in an allegedly 'white' neighbor- 

struggle between President Andrew John-j^ hood is a somber reminder that the home 
son. Lincoln's successor, and the great Ab-, front requires close attention lest the whole 

olitionist, Thaddeus Stevens. If permit 
ted exhibition, the film will rank along 
with "The Birth Of A Nation^' as a libel 
upon the fight for freedom of the Negro 
people and, in fact, the whole crusade to- 
ward the realization of democracy in this 
nation. In the picture, Stevens, arch-en- 
emy of the Dixie Bourbons and their ap- 
peaser friends in the North, the Copper- 
heads, with whom Johnson was solidly al- 
ligned, is depicted as a deep died villain, 
plotting against the best interests of his 
country. > 

Stevens, one of the great democrats of 
American history, shares the fate of the 
Negro in Americah history texts — largely 
because his life was so inextricably bound 
up with the whole struggle of black Amer- 
ica and their ihdomitable will to be free. 

A member of the House of Representa- 
tives dtnnng Lincoln's Administration, 
Stevens was his stanch ally, often blaz- 
ing trails which *0!d Abe' later followed. 
Steven^ was the first to demand Emanci- 
pation and offered a House resolution to 
that effect. He led the great revolution- 
ary Congr'ess sessions which armed the 
Negro^ liberated him.and finally gave him 
the rights of citizenship. Friend and co- 
worker of Frederick Douglass, he ■was 
one of the greatimonuments to the integrit}- 
of American democracy. Because of his 
relentless attack upon the enemies of free- 
dom and the Negro people, — especially his 
advocacy of a measure to split the great 
plantations, which remain in our own day 
the fotmtain heads of Southern reaction, 
and distribute the land in 40 acre lots to 
poor whites and cx-slaves, — Stevens has 
become the foul conspirator of Recon- 
struction in the crooked histories which 
have come out of that^ period. . 

As a matter of fact. President .Vndrew 
Johnson, whom the new MGM picture 
glorifies, was the open tool of the former 
slave masters and reactjonary Northern- 
ers. So contrarj- to the progressive spirit 
of the times was Johnson's . appeasement 
policy that he escaped impeachment by one 
vote in the Senate and did not dare run for 

There is somediing more than meets the 
eye in the deliberate glamorization of a 
-'known American appeaser and the untime- 
ly assault upon the record of one of the na- 
tion's greatest liberals. Certainly the par- 
allel between these da}s and those of the 
Civil War is abundandy clear. First, we 
are again engaged in a battle against die 
enslavement of mank-ind (thus difffcring 
from the last conflict over the possession 
of ra^v materials and markets; this one in- 
volves the grim prosjject of total con- 
quest). Part of that struggle is the liber- 
ation of the Negro people, whose complete 
freedom was sabotaged after the Ci\ il 
War in a vast plot which included the as- 
sination ot"" Lincoln, the ajjpeasement of 

purpose of the war is denied and negated. 

At a time when the country yet thrills 
to the exploits of Negro and Filipino troops 
which' fought at Corregidor and in the hell 
of Bataan peninsular, when Douglas Mac- 
Arthur has just decorated three colored 
soldiers for bravery — in this case, a daring 
exploit which Saved the life of a white pilot 
— a solemn court order in our own county 
decrees that Arnerican citizens may not 
occupy duely :purchased property because 
of racial identity. 

There is no excuse for the Negro people 
of Los Angeles taking this decision lying 
down. The legality upon which it is bas- 
ed is out-moded. Toda}' this country is a 
single people, fighting for national surviv- 
al. There can be no place for hate-as-usual 
in America, its proponents are a danger to 
all of us and they must go. This is true 
of Gov. Eugene Talmadge; it is true of 
California's property race restrictions. 
This battle his been fought successfully in 
other States. It can be here. 

Under the expert handling of Atty.'s 
Loren Miller and Thomas L. Griffith, 
president of the local branch of the Na- 
tional Association for the Advancement of 
Colored People, an excellent defense of the 
defendant Negro and Filipino families has 
been conducted, and a planned appeal may 
reverse the current court opinion. But wc 
need something more than a defense in par- 
ticular cases. It is time that the people 
laanch an all-out offensive against the 
whole property restriction racket. It is 
harmful to the drive for national unity and 
the fullest prosecution of the war. It 
ghettoizes American communities. 

In such a contest, it is inrportant to know 
the nature of our enemy. Creation and en- 
forcement of property restrictions is not a 
s|X)ntaneous outburst of racial hatred on 
the part of various white communities in- 
\ olved. The race restriction system is con- 
ducted with loving care by huge real estate 
interests. The Negro "Corner" is a gold- 
mine. Exorbitant rents are charged and up- 
keep is nil, since even ordinary improve- 
ments are usually denied in the Negro 
neighborhood. Penned into this high-rent 
area, the Negro's escape is cut short by the 
property restrictions of surrounding sec- 
tions. The maintance of this profitable 
trap, which exploits a section of the people 
least able to bear such extra-curricular 
burdens, is the special province of large 
realty firms. These grasping firms sup- 
ort special trouble shooters whose business 
it is to plug any hole in the restriction dyke 
through which their victims may seep. A 
familiar pattern of these operations was 
that seen in the Celebrated reinstitution of 
lapsed property restriction by the township 
of Maywood, which borders the Central 
A\enue district, largest local ghetto, to the 
Southeast. The restriction's lapse inspired 
no violent reaction in the town and would

Our Destiny Is ot Stake in the Caucasus 

Address by DR. MONROE E. DEUTSCH, vice president and provost 
of the University of California at San Francisco Civic Auditor- 
sum, Sunday night, August 9. 1942. 

This outpouring of men and women reveals many things— it 
shows that there are American people who realize that the war 
comes first and that everjthing else is— and must be— placed sub- 
ordinate to it; it shows we know — '- ■ 4 — 

that, wherever men are fighting 
against the Axis, they are fight- 
ing for us and our cause; it shows 
that the American people want 
action — and more action. 

■We remember that early in 
World War II there was a con- 
siderable period that we called 
a "phony war": nothing happen- 
ed, both sides seemed to be safe 
behind their lines, the Siegfried 
and the Maginot lines. But 
while the French waited, think- 
ing themselves secure, the Ger- 
mans made their plans, and 
when they were ready, they 
struck — and with lightning speed. 

We want action — and more ac- 

. . . Every blow struck at one of 
our Allies is a blow struck at us. 
Don't take it calmly, as if it 
were merely a news item of in- 
terest to be read or heard and 
then dismissed. 

Eyer>- defeat of the Chinese 
armies is a defeat for us: every 
slaughter of their people is weak- 
ening the cause of the United 
Nations. When we think of the 
lieroic resistance that the Chinese 
have been putting up for more 

be overwhelmed, the whole of the war will inevitably 
be altered. Think of the ease 
with which German reinforce- 
ments could be sent to Norfti 
Africa: even if some were de- 
stroyed on the way, so many 
would get through safely that 
Rommel could strike back at the 
finish and seize Egypt and the 
Suez Canal: next would come the 
attack on the Near East and the 
Middle East, and finally India 
assailed by Japan as well as Ger- 

And then the Germans will 
ha\e again as their only oppon- 
ent in Europe Great Britain, and 
they can concentrate on an in- 
vasion, secure from any enemy 
army in all the rest of Europe. 

The situation is critical— yes. 
very critical. 

And so we assemble to express 
our sense of danger, oar rcaliza- 
tiori that this is the moment 
which may well decide the fate 
of mankind for centuries, as Hit- 
ler foretold. 

We know that if a second 
front could be created, it would 
force the Germans to transfer 
many of their divisions from the 

we feel and put forth every ix)s- 
sible effort to set up a sedond 
front. If it is absolutely hope- 
less, certainly we dc not 'wish to 
undertake it and wantonly I de- 
stroy the lives of our' fine young 
men without even a chance of 
aiding the allied cause. This we 
agree — but the plan must nojt be 
rejected unless it is clear thbt it 
is impossible. Risks we arc [rea- 
dy to face as our Allic.- are 'fac- 
ing them— and as Americans 
have through our entire national 
existence faced them. If thei-e is 
even a good chance, let us take 
it. Rtmember the fate of the 
various nations that waited too 
long. Thefe is danger either 
way, and we Americaiis are pre- 
pared to face it. For wc see so 
clearly the horror of a Nazi vic- 
tory. Do you recall the State- 
ment." "We'd rather die on our 
feet than on our knees."? If we 
must die, it is infinitely better to 
perisli aiding the cause- of free- 
dom and justice than in a con- 
centration camp before a Nazi 
firing squad. 

When we balance chances, let 

an unjust hardship on the public. 

Happily, a beginning has been 
jnade with the Senate commit- 
tee'^*^ action in approving deduc- 
tions for burdensome rnedical 
bills. Notably enough, it isn't 
Congress which has been the first 
to bring relief to the American 
family's medical expense prob- 
lem, but private banking insti- 
tutions, and more particularly, 
California branch banking, 
which pioneered in offering low- 
cost personal credit to meet doc- 
tor's and dentists' bils. Even to- 
day, California remains unequal- 
eld by any state in the wealth of 
personal credit services made 
available by branch banking, ser- 
vices Californians have long tak- 
en for granted— until a visit to 
Eastern and Midwestern states 
reveals how many benefits they 
enjoy which are non-existent in 
other states. 

Now that Congress, too, recog- 
nies the need of extending a help- 
ing hand, hard-pressed breadwin- 
ners are gaining a measure of de- 
.scrved relief. 

Argentina clings stubbornly 
to her "splendid isolation." but 
the loneliness of her position 
prows more acute with each pass- 
ing week. 

America regrets and deplores 
Argentina's stand, but are we in 
"no position to harshly criticize 
her. Only a direct and violent as- 
sault upon American territory on 
the morning of December 7 last, 
awoke us to the fact that the fire- 
breathing war lords of Germany 
and Japan really meant business, 
really meant to destroy every na- 
tion blocking their path to world 
conquest. Up till then, we had 
given half-reluctant aid to t h e 
humble soldiers and citizens 

Trample on a mlnorfCy — and 
you do exactly as Hitler does 
and play Hitler's game. And 
we now see clearly that those 
who sought to sow disunity by 
attacking special groups and 
tried to stir up racial and reli- 
gions prejuJice. were indeed 
guilty of endeavoring to weak- 
en our country's strength; the 
courts of our nation have 
branded them traitors. 
In the fires of war let us forge 
a true unity, a true democracy in 
which men and women are rated 
for what they are and the doors 
of opfxjrtunity are open to ev- 
eryone according to his own 
merit, not the place where he or 
his parents were born, what the

And if a second front can be 
created, it must be created 
NOW. We don't know WHERE 
the attack on the Nazis can 
most reaj^lUy, be made, we don't 
know ex%iu)y at what moment 
we should strike. We realise 
thatt nsks must be taken, and 
the risks are tremendous. But 
you can't fight a war without 
risk and danger. The Russians 
di£ii't pick the moment of c<Hn- 
bat, nor did our men who died 
at Pearl Harbor. 
Surely we would not wish to 
throw thousands, ^es hundreds of 

against it the dangers to the en 
tire cause of the allied nations if 
Russia should be crushed. Ei- 
ther path abounds in dangers: 
that must not deter us from a 
second front if there really is a 
fighting chance. Our govern- 
ment knows the facts as we do 
nol-^and it must decide. But do 
not forget too the appeals of our 
Russian allies who have sacrific- 
ed their homes, their land and 
their lives in this common istrug- 
gle. Don't demand that We see 
complete security in this enter- 
prise; uor comrades are calling 
to us. Let us aid them if we 
possibly can. 

And you, fellow Americans. 1

Unity— and unity alone — will

. . ! No war has ever been like 
this one. None before touched 
the lives of every being on the 
entire earth. None before seized 
so many nations, so many conti- 
nents in its toils. None has ever 
threatened world domination as 
this has — for it is world rule at 
which the Axis aims, a rule in- 
tended to last for centuries. None 
before irampled so completely on

tality and slavery so avowedly 
its aim. In none was freedom at

But perhaps the most in- 
teresting thing about them 
are the sterling characters 
who operate the beasts. As 
a group, they are a singular- 
ly whacky agregation, given 
to dark moods and mild wife

of profound cynicism with 
vague overtones of bewilder-

The reasons for this unfortu- 
nate situation are many and piti-

first place, the lino man is one of 
the most defenseless creatures on 
earth. He must sit on his little 
stool ALL day long and copy 
verbatim .mind you, the wor, 
goldanged drivvel that comes to 
the mind of man. In Los Angeles, 
the situation is particularly grue- 
some. One unfortunate veteran of 
local newspaper setting has been 
reduced to a perennial promen- 
ade through the city streets, 
grinning merrily and occasion- 
allv pointing cut. "Hearst is a rat 
and I WON'T take it back!" 

Then there is the case of

i fabulous operator who used to:]

Whether the motion picture industry will rise to the challenge which these perilous day 

s relentlessly force upon it is a question whose answer will be forthcoming within a 

few months. A supreme test of the industry's ability to interpret the nature of new res 

ponsibilities which the nation's war effort thrusts upon it lies in its treatment of the 

greatest national minority and the one group which has suffered most grievousy 

at the hands of the film producers in the past, the American Negro. 

Still unaltered plans for the re- 
lease of MGM's lying story con- 
cerning the great liberal Ameri- 
vens, is an ominous, if not sinister 
vens is an ominous, if not sinister 
indication that here is at least one 
studio which intends to continue 
its corruption of U. S. history, re- 
gardless of the effect upon na- 
tional unity. The film, "Man on 
America's Conscience," purports 
to teU the story of Stevens, a 
■ member of the House of Repre- 
sentatives during Lincoln's ad- 
ministration, one of the Martyr 
President's staunchest supporters, 
a man who was buried in a Ne- 
gro graveyard "to prove the 
equality of man before God."

War changes many things. And people must change, too. Races 
nations which you hated before the war are now your allies, 
ghting side by side with you for the same cause. Wives, mothers, 
■eethearts, must give up their husbands, sons, lovers and bro- 
?rs. All must make sacrifices. All must ad^nist themselves to 
:e change brought about by war. 

Many of the conventions, traditions, customs, et cetera, must 
set aside. They must give way to the war effort. So if you are 
^lled, make up your mind to adjust yourself. The same is true of 
:ur family. 

There are many whites in the South who do not believe in mis- 
feattng other races. But those whites who do mistreat the Negro, 
kpecially the soldier, 'definitely are not doing their part to win 
r-is war. Many of these whites cling to the idea that the Civil War 
; still being fought and they hate all northerners and Negroes must 
re ground into dust. 

Government intervention must be made in southern* localities, 
casts too much to train soldiers, feed and clothe them and to have 
..e ^southern reactionariea to cause casualties, before the troops 
ave had a chance at action. There must be some changes made. 

lit. Frank Terry, former newspaper photog, got a break in that

^oth Frank and Beulah Terry are serving their country, in the 
me state, same camp, and sleeping next door to each other. 

Xhis war is teaching us, that aside from our duty to our coun- 
y, '.that love transcends all conventions, ideals, traditions and mo- 
iaiity. Women, let your men go into war knowing that your love 
for them will transcend all else. 

Many people do not know of the heroic efforts put forth by our 
merchant marines. On their shoulders falls the job of delivering 
t^upplies to our allies in the different ports in this global war. They 
lannot take direct routes, but must go 'round about ways, dodge 
EUbmannes, enemy planes, ships, mines, and what have you. 

Such a marine is Juan Ray. The guy who used to sell furniture

fetters from him in Hawaii and Australia. The following letter 
from? him was, received by this writer;

Office of War Information. 

In MGM's picture, Lionel 
Barrymore, as Stevens, por- 
trays a thorough-going vil- 
lain, is actually presented as 
an enemy of Lincoln! An- 
drew Johnson, his Vice-Pre': 

ident,played by young new- 
comer, Van Heflin, is shown 
as a friend and collaborator 
of Lincoln. Actually, John- 
son was an open Copperhead 
conspirator (the defeatists 
and anti-Negrophiles of that 
day) and would have been 
impeached for his crimes by 
the U. S. Congress except for 
the lack of one vote. 

The danger of this film lies not 
only in its vile falsification of 
American history but in its libel 
of the progressive movement 
of the Reconstruction period It 
happens that, the very things for 
which Stevens stood are the pro- 
gressive measures of today. Ste- 
vens fought for the right of fran- 
chise for Negroes and poor 
whites in the South. He fought 
for the complete overhauling of 
the Southern economic system 
-from which he clearly perceived 
that the remainder of its miser- 
ies flowed. He fought for the 
full integration of American Ne- 
groes in every phase of the na- 
tion's life. Aren't these the vital 
questions of today and doesn't 
the repudiation Of Stevens re- 
prerent a rppudiation of the 

whole struggle of, the Negro peo- 
ple now? I 


A demonstration of the tact 
that Hollywood can be whip- 
ped into line on ihis question 
is the recent cancellation of 
a reissue of the old Gary 
Cooper starrer, "The Real 
Glory," a film which insulted 
the FilUpine people, because 
of protests received from 
trade unions and other bodies 
by the U. 3. government. 

We must announce, to the 
Hollywood producers that the 
day of apology for the Civil War 
and the principles which moti- 
vated loyal Americans who 
fought it is at an end Today, 
for the first time since the Qivil 
War, Americans are fighting: for 
the same principles. Any motion 
picture which defilg| the very 
core of the American Belief— 
another time for the! purpose of 
which glorifies the appeasers of 
justifying the appeasers of today 
— is a threat to the welfare and 
the war effort of this country.

Trio Goes to Fontona 

Mrs. Ruth Moore Smith of Chi- 
cago, m.; Mrs. Emily Brown 
Portwig, and Mi&s Elizabeth 
Armstrong spent Sunday in Fon- 

Last night (Monjday) in Canl- 
bridge, at J the Brattle Hall sum- 
mer theatre, when 
took the stage in 
"Othello," it was 
in America a Negro ever playeo 
the role Of that to\yering giant 
of tragfedy with a Vvhite company 
in support. It wajs also the first 
time in modem times that the 
incredibly powerfiil tale of the 
insensate jealousv of a man 
goaded beyond enflufance by the 
fancied infidelity of his wife ever 
really made sense. And it was, 
moreover, the first time that this 
fanatically recalcitrant drama, 
which has confounded actors, 
critic and pulplic ialike for three - 
centurie^ ever appeared to be 
headed for financial -success. It 
is absolutely tremendous with 
the audience. This, incidentally, 
is not the first tiipe Robeson has 
done "Othello"; he first played 
it over a, decade ago in London. 

There can hardly be a question 
that the play would hurl Broad- 
way on its practically invulner- 
able ear. Given a theatre with 
more than three square feet of 
stage and something besides 
closet8*for wings; given a hand- 
picked cast of professionals to 
support the principals, and given 
a little more time for the cast to 
play itself in, and "Othello" 
would floor a pulp magazine au- 
dience, let alone the-hand-picked 
crtJwd which cheered it last 
night. With Robeson playing op- 
posite a white girl, the effect is 
electric and this aside from the 
fact that his portrayal is an ar- 
tistic triumph in any category. 

As given last night, the play 
silences for all time. the folderol 
centering around the furious con- 
troversy ihat Othello was not in- 
tanded as ar Negro, and should 
consequently not be played by 
one. Fact of the matter is that 
Robeson's performance is of such 
a stature that no white man 
should ever dare presume to play 
it again, especially since it is to 
be strongly questioned that any 
member of the audience, no mat- 
ter how delicate of sensitivities, 
was offended by a single mo- 
ment of the action. 

Robeson's performance is a re- 
velation. He accomplishes the 
transition to the terrible rage of 
a betrayed huisband with a de\- 
astatmg power of expression. His 
voice, a magnificent instrument, 
is capable of the utmost inuance, 
from the ineffable tenderness of 
his troth with Desdemona to the 
dreadful gibberish of an epileptic 
in the tnroes of insane jealoujy. 
Beyond that, however, is his ter- 
rific capacity for changing pace, 
and every tortured thought finds 
its logical expression. By the 
tim? his passion is spent, his au- 
dience has been through the roll- 
ing mill. — "Variety."

of Negr* gridders who are apt to make beadlints between now

in on the know, is sophomore Dave Alston of Penn State. A tri- 
plethreat, Alston b being touted as a lad who will make fans for- 
get such greats as Osxie Simmons of Iowa, Kenny Washington of 
LCLA, and Frits. Pollard of Brown. Likable and cheerful, Alston 
nevertheless can hit the line like an army tank, is as slippery as an 
eel in an open field, and kidu and passes. Hefty, he scales 205 

Phi Beta Kappa Sam Pierce, lS3-pound i^ill-o'-the-wisp, back 
at Cornell; Bill Willis, a 302-pound sophomore tackle, who is sche-

eleven: Martin Chapman, Akron (O.) fullback; Ted .Mason, West-

among the eld and new names which figure to add liutre to the

Top young sluggers who have 
been providing the customers i 
with the" best fights in local 
arenas will stage another all-ac- i 
tion melee Tuesday night at the i 
Olympic auditorium. j 

I 'Ebe all-star program, compris- ' 
j ing-the coming champions of this 
sector, which was held a couple 
of weeks ago at the Olympic, 
proved such a popular, slam- 
bang affair that Snowy Baker, 
promoter, decided to give the 
I fans another such smashinjf ex- 
hibition of fisticuffs. 

These lads who are battling for 
the main-event spot in the lime- 
I light go into the ring v ith everj-- 
j thing they have and wage a fast 
; and furious fight to the last gong. 
Some outside taient will be im- 
ported by Harry Ussery, San 
Diego pilot, who has beer^devel- 
' oping some outstanding navy 
I material. Jimmy Frattini. known 
as the sailor thrill fighter, is one 
of them. He will toe the mark 
with Don Lemos. hard slashing 
brother of Ritchie, in a five heat 
go at 137 pounds. 

Al Morey, another leather 
pufher from the Ussery stable, 
will meet Bobby Yaeger. The 
latter, who is pointing for 
Tony Canelli. knocked out Ru- 
dy Campa two -weeks ago in 
one minute and 57 seconds. 
Morey defeatd AI Grayson last 
Friday in San Diego and put 
up two hectic fights recently at 
Hollywood. He will give Yae- 
ger his best opposition since 
Yaeger's comeback. They are 
inked for six romds at 144 
Dudge Everitt Ussery's other 
importation from San Diego, will 
clash with speedy Jack Stebbins. 
They will travel the five stanza 
route at 155 pounds. 

Another five round bout will 
be Chuck Railey vs. Matthew 
Oglesby. a rematch. They pound- 
ed each other in a terrific fracas 
which ended in a draw at Ocesn 
Park recpntly. Oglesby stopped 
Frankie Antuna two weeks ago 
in a sensation tussle. They will 
enter the ring at 140. Fighting 
at 153 pounds in a six round duel 
will be Jimmv Brooks vs. Ro.s-

gion at Western university, Kan- 
sas City, Kansas; and the Presid- 
ing Elder and Mrs. X. C. Run- 
yon of Berkeley, together with 
other distinguished visitors, will 
add the inspiration of their -res- 
ence to the services. 

The morning message will be 
delivered by the pastor, but 
Bishop Williams will deliver the 
communion meditation, and will 
be the chief celebrant. The 
choirs of the church will furnish 
special music throughout the 

At the morning hour, the sen- 
ior choir, directed by , Jester 
Hairston, will sing Mueller's ar- 
rangement of Luther's great

work which has been accom- 
plished during the past year i 
both in the church at large, i 
and in the several departments. [ 
Since the annual conference 
will meet this year in San Die- i

opportunity to hear the report 
which their minister will make 
to the annual meeting. 
A few days^ago nearly $700 re- 
mained to be* raised to complete ' 
the financial program of the ' 
church for the year. Rev. Jor- I

to discuss this kind of help 

Many a girl has suffered from 
cramp-like pain and other dis- 
tresses due only to periodic 
functional causes simply because 
that was a subject people didn't 
talk about. 

Nowadays thousands of women 
rely on the 2-way help of CAR- 
DUI. Started 3 days before the 
time and taken as directed, CAR- 

DUI should help relieve purely 
fimctional periodic pain. Used as 
a tonic, it often perks up appe- 
tite, increases the flow of gastne 
juices, thus aiding digestion and 
thereby helping to build up 
strength and resistance for the 
time it's most njeded.

An added assurance of success was given the Mass

people in the United States, 
just as is the liberation of 
the great Indian nation. 
An astonishing aspect of 
the current conflict is its 
stri^iinf similarity to the Ci- 
vil War, another of the 
world's great progressive 
straggles and an historical 
precedent contributing im- 
measurably to the clarity of

hour. A comparison between 
these two epochs in the ad- 
vancement of our people is 
essential to grasp the vast- 
ness of the tasks which con- 
front ns today. We are not 
only "the test of democracy." 
We are not step-children 
waiting bitterly for our turn 
at the nation's bountiful 
table. We are one of the 
driving liberal forces in this 
country. Our power is vast 
and untapped. We make no 
plaintive and negative re- 
quest for freedom, for that 
freedom is indispensable to 
our nation's victory. 

The Ciz'il War zcas the 
unavoidable explosion in- 
herent in the glaring conflict 
betivecn the Constitution of 
the United States and the 
philosophy zvhich it voiced 
as opposed to the institution 
of chattel slavery. That 
this conflict raged from the 
moment of this nation's 
birth is clearly seen in the 
fact that, but for a singk 
fote, slavery zvould .have 
been abolished in tlie Con- 
stitution itself. Thomas 
Jefferson understood the 
volcanic nature of this com- 
promise and wrote stirring 
condeninatio)i of the Conti- 
nental Congress' action in 
this matter. "In that awful 
moment," he wrote, "when 
one vote would have saved 
four million human beings 
from chattel slavery, ..the 
voice of Heaven stood still!" 

on the opening of a ficond FrW 
one in which the masses^ of the 
people will contribute and re- 
ceive as much as possible, this 
responsibility was undertaken by 
the committee.

Seel( Pardon 



An immediate and uncon- 
ditional pardon for Festus 
Lewis Coleman, the young 
San Fr&ncisco Negro sen- 
tenced to San Quentin for 
65 years on a false charge of 
"rape and robbery," is being 
sought by the Coleman Dc- 
^ J. . .,_ . . fense Co-ordinating com- 

States, according to the state- ... ., ° , 

ment. "As a people we support fmittee, it was ^ announced 

from San Francisco today. 

The unique development of an 
industrial and commercial de- 
mocracy alongside a feudal oli- 
igarchy wsa the history of the 
first fiity years of the American, 
nation. The South recognized 
early that the Constitution v^as, 
its deadly enemy and we find 
that hallowed document fre- 
quently attacked during this per- 
iod by the Southern Congress- 
men on the grounds • of • its- ob- ■ 
jectionable "glittering generali- 
ties." On the other, hand,, there 
grew an increasingly conscious 
opposition to the . sj^ve .ppw?r. in 
the North and the new West. 
The Bourbon, however, retain- 
ed control of Congress and the 
White House through able ex- 
ploitation of his Northern allies 
the cotton-dependent banking 
and commercial classes. Atrayed 
against these forces was the man- 
ufacturing Northern industry, 
beginning its great conquest of 
the American scene, — Labor, and 
the Negro people.

the war not only to maintain the 
existence of the United States as 
a nation," it read, "but the world 
of jim crow nd segregation, and 
to bring equality and freedom to 
the Negro people." 

Those opposed to fighting on a 
second front, it was pointed out, 
include the Ku Klux Klan, men 
like Eugene Talmadge of Georgia 
and Frank Dixon of Alabama, 
Martin Dies, Father Coughlin, 
and others who are busy reviving 
the "white supremacy" move- 
ment and who would be glad to 
make a deal with Hitler to in-

that those guilty of criminal 
activity should be punished, it 
is far more important to socie- 
ty as a whole that the funda- 
mental principle that every de- 
fendant is entitled to a iair 
trial should be preserved." i 

The committee is circulating a 
petition to accompany the formal 
application for pardon so that 
the governor will know that the 
citizens of this country are in- 
terested in righting the injustice 
done Coleman and his people. 

Soy ed from 

10— David Williams, 47- 
year old sharecropper won 
the first round in his battle 
against a South Carolina 
land owner who wants him 
put into a Sputhern jail for 
failing to fami cotton crop 
after receiving several hun- 
dred dollars in advance. 

With Harry Weltchek, volun- 
teer attorney, contending that to 
force Williams to return invol- 
untarily would be "reducing him 
to slavery," the Negro won a 
stay of extradition from Com- 
mon pleas court Judge Hetfield. 

Williams, who says he and his 
wife and six children couldn't 
live on the $25 a montli — 5 
months a vear and share of the 
profits they were paid, will l>e

Mr. Goshal, a noted Indian 
scholar and lecturer on India, 
told the audience that the prob- 
lems facing the Indian people 
must be solved as the war pro- 
ceeds. "We shall have to aolve 
them," he aaid, "not by sending 
leaders to jail, not by shooting 
the people down, not by drag- 

ging in such archaic laws as the 
whipping laws. That is why we 
want to form a national govern- 
ment that can defend India." 

"The Indian people," he de- 
clared, "have demonstrated fully 
their right to stand beside the 
United Nations as a full and e- 
qual ally. Only full mobiliza- 
tion of all the Indan peopje, with 
the tools to develop a people's ar-

he said," — conditions which 
must be changed to carry for-

WASHINGTON, D. C. Sept 10— Because the American people want to unite the

Pauline Slater 
New Assistance 
League Prexy 

Assistance League* members 
have chosen Miss Pauline Slater, 
' prominent cit>r high school lead- 
er, to succeed Mrs. Delia Wil- 
liams, whose term in office as 
president has been so highly sue- | 
[ cessful. 

I The recently elected officers 
i were officially installed by Mrs. 
! Jessie Coles Grayson during the 
! regular September meeting at 
the home of the organizer and 
' sponsor. Mrs. Fannie Williams. 
I Miss Slater, as president, will be 
supported by the following offi- 
cers; Mrs. Emily Thompson- 
Woody, vice president; Mrs. Ed- 
! na Mae Cohen, recording secre- , 
I tary; Mrs. Clolhilde Woodard, , 
corresponding secretary; Miss 
Iva Washington, treasurer; and 
! Mrs. Marjorie McPheEson, parlia- , 
' mentariaii. 

These officers will further the ! 
manifold accomplishments of the : 
league, which, when viewed in ) 
retrospect, have been little short 
of phenomenal. 

Originally a mere brain-child 
of that valiant philanthropist, 
Mrs. Fannie Williams, long out- 
standing in civic endeavor, the 
Assistance league was organized i 
June 16, 1937, at the home of 
Mrs. Jessie Grayson, with the j 
avowed purpose of assisting in 
every possible financial and 
spiritual way, the Outdoor Life 
and Health association, at that 
time in its infancy. Charter 
members numbering exactly 16, 
formed the nuclteui? and were j 
contacted by Mrs. Fannie Wil- | 
liams, Miss Iva Washington, Mrs. 
Ethel Bell, and Mrs. Jennie Dora 
It has been due In great mea- 
sure to the unstinted efforts of 
this enlarged group that, in 
1940, the Outdoor Life and 
Health association p r oa d 1 y 
opened the doors of its rest 
home in Duarte which accom- 
modated 16 patients. Today, 
the Duarte rest home is a vast, 
beautifully landscaped 10-acre 
sanitorium, modern and scien- 
tific to the nth degree with a

congratulated for their splendid 
work and for the almost incredi-

contributed 'o forward such a 
worthy cause. Since the time it

ctents and sponsor, Mrs. Wil 

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 10.— 
Dr. Bertram P. Brown, director 
of the Stale Department of Pub- 
lic Heakh and chief of the Emer- 
gency Medical Service unit of the 
State Council of Defense, today 
offered suggestions on what wo- 
men should and should not wear 
^Ihat IS if they are working in 
war industries. 

"I malie no claim to b^ing an 
arbiter of women's fashions. " 
said Dr. Brown, "but the rapid 
increase of women workers in 
shipyards, airplane plants and in 
munition factories, makes it nec- 
essary for me frorti a safety 
standooint, to offer a few help- 
ful suggestions to these women." 

The physician said his sugges- 
tions on the proper wearing ap- 
parel for women war workers' 
are based on clothes that are 
practical, comfortable and attrac- 
tive. His suggestions follow: 

1. Wear uniform type of out- 
side apparel, such as slack suit.«. 
slacks and tucked-in shirts, or 
cover-all minus loose cuffs or 
pockets to avoid the possibility i 
of. becoming entangled in moving , 
machinery. ' 

2. Wear well-fitting, low-heel- 
ed oxfords giving firm support 
to' the arches. Such shoes are an 
aid to good posture, help pre\'ent 
fatigue and accidents. Open-toe 
or high heel shoes are neither 
safe nor practical in industrial 

3. Caps. nets, or wrap-around 
turban head bands to up long 
bobs to prevent hair from being 
caught in moving machinery. 
Women with short or boyiih bobs 
should also wear head coverings. 
The same static electricity that 
makes hair fellow a brush or 
comb can cause accidents if hair 
is permitted to fly loosely. 

4. Do not wear bracelets, wrist 
watches, earrings, necklaces or 
rings. These accessories do not 
add to leminine attractiveness in 
shipyards or aircraft plants, but 
do add to the number of avoid- ! 
able accidents. i 

Women working on certain jobs ' 
that are potentially hazardous to 
eyes, hands and other parts of I 
the Dody should wear projective 
equipment such as goggles, gloves 
and apro;is. 

Askea what women should ! 
wear away from work in war j 
plants, Dr. Brown answered with 
"No comment." i 

Kind looks, kind words, kind { 
acts, and warm handshakes — 
these are secondary means of ! 
grace when men are in trouble 
and arc fighting thc'r unseen 
battles.— John Hall.

church mortgage and the cancel-

torate of Rev. Alfred K. Quinn, 
this week. 

The church, which had just 
completed a 60-day self denial 
campaign in which the members 
contributed a total of $1950, of 
which $1550 was used toward 
eliminating the church debt and 
was "matched " by an equal 
amount contributed by friends of 
the church including a number 
of prominent Santa Monica busi- 
nessmen, held the ceremony at 
, its 19th street and Michigan ave-

raised during the campaign will 
be used for educational and mis-

a statement by President Roose-

There seems to be concentrated I 
efiort on the part of some of our j 
people to contuse themselves on | 
many issues, even one as obvious i 
as tbisu The issue that is being | 
SD belatedly confused is that ot ' 
the President's position on the 
stabilization of wages and farm, 
prices. i 

Such chaotic thinking may be 
due to an ignorance of the facts 
or may be caused direcUy by a 
vicious campaign of rumors and : 
whispers against Presidential 
policies. Is there such a need 
tor confusion when the situation 
13 pitifully dear? Either we 
have some stabilized control over 
wages, prices and profits or we 
have a disastrous climb in the 
cost of living, striking at every 
family budget in the «jation. 
Which shall it be? Surely, no 
sane individual would choose a 
course that would lead to inl'la- 

The President has given Con- 
gress a deadline to enact th,e pro- 
per legislation to curb the cost 
ol living. He knows the danger 
of dawdling at a precarious tune 
like this. Congress has lost too 
much time ducking and dodging 
Maybe the Rep.'s and Senators 
don't realize that a country 
threatened with inflation can- 
not successfully engage in a war. 
Maybe they aren't aware that 
they might lose the war if some 
solution isn't offered, and soon. 
They may be afraid of poliucal 
consequences, but what do we 
care abeut political consequences 
when the very life of the nation 
IS threatened? 

Mr. Rofesevelt stated that at 
the ■'same time farm prices are 
stabUized, I will stabilize wages. 
That is plain justice and plain 
crmmon sense." In his message 
on Labor Day, the President 
made his position clear by re- 
marking that if Congress dc. — » t 
act by Oct. 1. he will act en nis 
own responsibility.

By nature, slavocracy most

dant. Fascism. So the con- 
test ot the years leading in- 
eviUbly to the Civil War 
centered about the extension 
of slavery to the country's 
immense Western empire. 
Even then, the stupid, single 
crop policy of the South was 
taking its toll o( the rich 
Southern farm land. Fur- 
thermore, the planters knew 
that they could not maintain 
their strangle hold upon, the 
government with new. free 
States coming into the I'nion. 
The battle for the West was 
launched. In "bloody Kan-

With thr passing of Labor 
Day, the American people got 
many grave reminders of the na- 
tion's stake in this war. The na- 
tion approached the day set as- 
ide for the felicitation o f Us 
great Labor moveme: . with 
much sobriety of t h o u g h.t 
There were no gigantic Labor 
day spectacles or massive dem- 
onstrations. There were no fri- 
volous celebrations and expen- 
sive outings. Instead, the holi- 
day was spent working. Those 
urrfortunate few who did not 
work., spent the day either'list- 
ening to radio programe at home 
or attending some meeting or ga- 
thering held by their unions. 

Here in Los .Angeies at the Sh- 
rine auditorium, the AmiUcan 
Federation of Labor celebrated 
the occasion with a mass meet- 
ing. Winning the war was the 
theme of the program and many 
notable speaJcers were on hand. 

President C. J. Haggerty of 
the State Federation of Labor; 
'Today, just nine mionths to the 
day from the date of the coward- 
ly attack by the Japanese on 
Pearl Harbor, there will be more 
ships launched on the four sea- 
boards of this great country than 
were ever launchde before in the 
history ot the world. ' 

Gov. Culbert L. Olson: -Lab- 
or's interest in this war is as 
great, if not greater than any 
other group of our people be- 
cause the workers know that 
they are the first victims of the 
of the Nazis who deride indus- 
trial democracy, labor participa- 
tion in management, laber un- 
ionism and collective bargaining. 

Secretary J. W. Buzzell of Los 
Angeles Central Labor Council: i 
The job of continuing America i 
on the sound basis on which she 
has lived up to this time lies in 
the hands of Labor and Industry 
together. They, working togeth- 
er, can preserve American tra- 
ditions after the war is over and 
theirs is the responsibility. La- 
bor is ready and willing to meet 
that responsibility and we think 
this, the occasion of its 'holiday. 
provides a great opportunity to 
say it publicly." 

Thus was Labor's conception 
of the present emergency.

AME Patrons, 



One of the most surpri.'^ed 
meetmgs of the Patrons and Pa- 
tronesses club of the .AME church 
was recorded Saturday afternoon 
at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. 
Richard Davis. 1413 E. 90th 

Mrs. Minnie Tucker, president 
of the club, led the '" j into the 
beautiful summer garuen. The 
garden was very unique; it con- 
sisted of vegetables, fruits, and 
flowers of all varieties. The 
garden was so beautiful and in- 
teresting that the club's business 
was suspended. 

Twenty-five members were, 
present besides the guests. Mr. ' 
and Mrs. J. B. Burt. W. L. Mar- I 
tin, J. D. Dunn, and Rev. F. D, 

The host and hostess serveol 
the most delicious repast, con- 
sisting (rf barbecued spare ribs, 
southern fried chicken, with all 
the trimmings, and an unending 
supply of hot . rolls. Everyone 
enjoyed themselves. S. L. Mar- 
shall is the reporter. 

.A resolution petitioning the 
President of the United States 
for greater protection of Negroes 
in the armed forces and war in-

CALIENTE. Mex.— Generalissi- 
mo Walter Marty again gave the 
fans, who are lovers of the sport 
of Kings, two big gala days of 
racing at beautiful Caliente, Mex. 
They came from the far North- 
ern parts of the State as well as 
from Southern California. It 
was the first time in years that 
Caliente had races on Labor Day. 
and a big crowd turned out for 
both days. 

The twenty-four races that had 1 
been arranged by racing secre- i 
tary Judge Joe Walters were 
some of the best in many months. ' 
Close finishes marked most of 
the events. Form players as well 
as the boys that like to take a 
chance on box-car figures had , 
their share of winners. Direct- 
or of racing and presiding stew- 
ard Judge George Shilling has 
completed the stkes' races for 
.lext month, with the closing of 
long acres at Seattle. Wash., 
some of the best horses on the 
Coast will ship to Caliente at 
j oncee. Many new features are 
( on tap for the fans in the near 
future. Riding honors for the | 
' two big days were stolen by the 
I little Italian qockey. Charlie 
I Bianco, who brought in five win- 
ners On Labor Day. The longest . 
priced horse to win was Facilius. I 
who won the last race of the ' 
. day's sport at one mile and six 
furlongs, setting a new track re- j 
cord of 3:01-2/5, paying $35.20 
with the Quinella paying $65.00, i 
I while the popular daily-double 
paid $50.20 

Well, this Sunday another fine 
card of twelve races will be run 
with the boy and girl jockeys 
meeting in the feature race of 
the day. So far since this novel 
event was staged at Caliente, the 
girls have it on the boys in rac« 
t won . Three other features will 
suport this novel race. 

So. fan, that's the nev.s from 
South of the border down Mexi- 
co way for this week. Could 
I tell you plenty mo... but I am 
I late this week with my column,

Rev. Russell 
Returns to 


lonnot Rejoice Oyer Plight 
llf ivacuees^ - Rey. Coston 

tta the historic occasion of the Trinity Baptist church holding 
initial services in property built for Japanese Christians on Nor- 
idie at 35th street, the pastor, Dr. Jonathan L. Caston, in refer- 
to the enforced evacuation 
«f ."American citizens of Japan- 
ese descent, stirred his hearers 
when he said very forcefully: 

"We cannot rejoice over the 
plight of American citizens of 
Japanese ancestry, who have 
been forced to leave this beauti- 
ful and moit useful site. It is 
unfortunate, indeed, that we 
could find no other way of hand- 
ling this oroblem. 

"One shudders to think that 
trhat has happened to this mi- 
nority i70up, some of whom 
knew no other home and were 
our friends, misht upon occa- 
sion be done to any other mi- 
nority in America. I feel this 
matter very deeply and am 
aware tliat sometltini: fine lias 
fone from our concept of de- 
mocracy. We are all aliens by 
extraction. -We found only tl» 
American Indian here. 

"Nevertheless, we do rejoice 
that sine this course has been fol- 
lowed, we of Trinity church are 
able to put this fine plant to the 
uses for which^at was built. We 
consider ourselves fortunate and 
are humbled by the sacred trust 
this opnortunity brings." 

Dr. Caston's sermon topic was 
•The Spirit-filled Church, God's 
Earthly Dwelling Place." 

The sanctuary of the new 
church seats 600 persons exclu- 
sive of the balcony, and as one 
worshipper was heard to say, 
"This church is packed and jam-^ 
med to the rafters." 

The senior choir, under the 
baton of minister of music. Mar- 
guerite Hoard, was equal to the | 
occasion. Earl J. Pleasant, new 
director of the Celestial Choris- 
ters, took two lead parts. Other 
solos were done by Mesdames 
Thelma Taylor. Vera Romby, 
Mrs. Caston was at 'he organ. 
Hannah Dix and Esther Garland. 
Guest soloist wrs Mrs. .Anna Mil- 

Dr. James E. Dunninc, ex- 
ecutive secretary of the Church 
Extension board of the Meth- 
odist Church, in a few well 
rhosen words wished the Trin- 
ity church rreat success and 
presented the keys to Paul H. 
Cassell. (•bc'-man of the trus- 
tee board. 

The chancel of the church is 
pre-possessinp and the church 
must be -ated as Los An^ele^:' 
most beautiful Negro church. It 
was the 'Tiecca for hundreds who 
thrnnged the tWw buildings from 
earlv mcrning until the evening 
S'^rvce ■vvas concluded. In the 
pfternnor. one of the 50 clubs of 
the chur:h sponsored an ."open- 
hnuso te;r' under the leadership 
of Al Jchnson and Ellee Jones. 
The eveninf sermon was deliver- 
ed by the Rev. H. N. Mays and 
announcement was made that 
evening worship will be held 
each Sunday at 7:45. Manv flor- 
al tributes were sent to the 
church by individuals and busi- 
ness firms.

Epochal Meeting Closes 
First AME Church Year 

An epoch-marking church con-* 
ference closed what memhiers of 
long standing in the First AME 
church, 801 Towne avenue, pro- 
nounced as the most brilliant 
vear in the history of that great 
church. Dr. Frederick D. Jordan 
presided, while representatives 
of all the organizations and de- 
partments made their reports. 

A high point of the meeting 
came when the Women's Mite 
lt\ '' Missionary society, of which Mrs. 
"■•V "A. W. Jordan is the president re- 
'iS ported over SIOOO raised during 
' the conference year. This is the 
largest amount raised by any so- 
\ ciety in the local churdr thruout 
\ the enture country. 
V Another evidence of the broad 
Wision of the church administra- 
came in the announcement 
■of tlie establishment of the Wil- 
s n - Andrews Foundation for 
charitv. This fund, established 
through the initiative of Mrs. 
Daisy Wilson as a memorial to 
her husband and mother, bids 
fair to become a significant in- 
strument of social welfare in the 
community. Several hundred 
dollars have already been raised 
as the nucleus of the fund. ^ 
In summing up the years 
work. Dr. Jordan called atten- 
tion to an increase of member- 
sliip of 150. Conference funds 
for the general work of the de- 
nomination toUled $3200. To- 
tal funds raised by the church 
duriug the conference year ap- 
proximated $20,000, of which 
the aggregate balances at the 
close of the conference year 
amounted to nearly $3000. A 
thousand dollars of this amount 
is a sinking fund invested in 
United States Defense Bonds 
and other securities. The pur- 
pose of this fund is the build- 
ing of an educational and so- 
cial service unit addition to the 
church when the war is over. 
Bishop Noah W. Williams, pre- 
siding bishop of the district, 
making what he referred to as 
his first appearance in a private 
official meeting of a local church 
since his election to the bishopric 
11 years ago. addressed the con-

The Moment Is Crisis! 

The war effort of the United States 
and of the United Nations is at a point 
of serious crisis today. 

This crisis extends from the River 
Don to Washington, D. C. It is present 
at every military conference, at every civ- 
ilian discussion of our war effort 

Our war crisis is seen in the contin- 
ued absence of a second front in Western 
Europe. It is seen in unchecked outbursts 
of American pro-Fascist elements, Dies, 
Rankin, Talmadge, Dixon, — the whole 
rotten crew. It is seen in the suicidal pol- 
icy of Britain in India. It is seen in the 
ability of an American Congress to ignore 
a clear demand by our country's people 
for a thorough-going war-time economic 
program, spreading the cost of this con- 
flict equitably and preventing a wild in- 
crease in the cost of living. 

On the banks of the River Don, gal- 

' Jant blood is let to pay for the crisis in our 

war effort, but the day fast approaches 

when the price of this crisis is extracted 

from every home in America, 

Impressive — shocking — is the fact 
that this emergency is almost wholly the 
triumph, not of our enemy on the field of 
battle, but the accomplishment of his Fifth 
Column in our midst. 

\\'ho in the United Nations has oppo- 
sed the establishment of a second front? 
It is clear: the friends of Hitler, the great 
Kings of wealth whose old prejudice ag- 
ainst the Soviet has lead them into a bitter 
opposition to those military moves which 
would have — and can still — extricate the 
Russian armies from their Gethsemane in 
the Caucasus. , 

It is no longer necc^ssary to recite a 
lengthy argument upholding the military 
'"feasibility" of a second front THIS 
YE.-VR. That, after all, was established 
upon the signing of the Roosevelt-Molotov 
agreements, after a searching military an- 
alysis. The commanding officers of the 
American forces on the British Isles have 
proclaimed their readiness to strike. Both 
U. S. and British shipping authorities have 
stated that an expeditionary army can be 
supplied. xA.dd to this the statement of the 
National Maritime Union that our ships 
TODAY can supply that second front. 
Here, then, are all the elements that point 
logically to an immediate opening of a Eu- 
ropean theater" of operations. There is: 

(1) A solemn, formal pledge by the Brit- 
ish and American governments to the Un- 
ited Nations and their respective peoples ; 

(2) The readiness of our armed forces in 
Britain, as evidenced by the statement of 
commanding officers; (3) The adequacy 
of shipping facilities. Coupled with these 
are other stark realities, Hitler's virtual 
stripping of Western Europe to complete 
his conquest of Southern Russia. 

How can Hitler do this.knowing that 
an attack from the rear would knock him 
out of the war? How can any sane mili- 
tarist place himself in such unspeakable 

We need not look far for an answer, 
to this query. Hitler himself is our infor- 
mant. His own statement, in the infamous 
and horribly consistent bible of his world 
conquest, Mein Kampf, holds: "America 
is a nation permanently on the brink of 
revolution." America, he says, will be de- 
feated from within. Hider's faith in his 
U. S. Fifth Column has so far been vindi- 
cated. Great press services, specifically. 
United and Associated Press, along with 
Hearst's International News Service, have, 
over the past several months, employed 
every journalistic trick to shift emphasis 
from the major military decision of our 
age, have discovered e.xtVemely suspect — 
and consistently anonymous — "informed 
quarters" to spout the virus of anti-second 
front, anti-victory, pro-Hitler propaganda. 
On the day that the commander of Cana- 
dian troops in Britain urged immediate 
"offensive action," a major news service 
reported from England,. , . .there is no 
talk of a second front here." Last Sun- 
day over a national radio network, a 'news 
commentator,' sponsored bv THE FORD 
that a second front this year is not being 
considered by American military authori- 
ties. This in the face of the Roosevelt — 
Molotov agreements! Such deliberate, 
public lying in time of unprecedented na- 
tional emergency amounts to nothing less 
than sedition. '\Vhat the Ford spokesman 
announces as "not being considered" is the 
sworn policy of &e United States govern- 
ment ! 

Dorothy Thompson, in her syndicated 

column, last week sounded the deep anxiet}' 

of millions of Arhericans when she asked 

r I flri g would our nation tolerate the ac- 

,-tlviticsi of . open- Fascists in high places. 

tiviti es of open Fascists in high places. 
She named the Ford company in a group 
which included Senator Robert Reynolds, 
poll-taxer de luxe. 

This is a Negro newspaper and is 
determined to view events of our day in 
particular relation to their effect upon this, 
our country's greatest and most cruelly op- 
pressed minorit}'. We say to our people 
that the absence of the second front, the 
increasing}' and daringly exercised power 
of this nation's native Fascists today is a 
threat to our legitimate democratic aspir- 
ations bigger than any we have faced since 
Emancipation, for in these things stands 
the gaunt, real danger of a- return to even 
more bitter and degrading enslavement. 

There sits in the White House a man 
of the people. In this our of supreme em- 
ergency, his policies are the living embodi- 
ment of the needs of America's warring 
millions, black and white. But his Admin- 
istration is subject to the bitter attack of 
every moneyed appeaser, of every mighty 
Fascist. Franklin Roosevelt has, however, 
one, all-important ally, the people., who 
must support the President's policies to 
the hilt and visit the rage of righteous in- 
dignation upon those who waylay them 
with vicious trickery. What are these 
Presidential policies demanding militant 
support by all our people? They are: 
1 — A Second Front in 1942. 
2 — Use of America's Industrial 
manpower without discrimination 
on the grounds of race (Executive 
Order 8802 J. 
• 3 — The Seven point economic 
{ Control of wages, prices and pro- 
fits) program. 
So powerful is the pro-Fascist con- 
spiracy against all of these measures that 
it will require all the force of common peo- 
ple everywhere to destroy this traitorous 

The call for direct support of the Am- 
erican people has come sure and pointed 
from the chief executive himself in hi* 
great speech of Sept. 7. The presiden/ 
asks this support over and against thus? 
enemies of the national welfare who have 
obstructed each one of the primal policies 
listed above. Hear Franklin Roosevelt: 

!'JFc Avicricans of today hear the 
gravest of responsibilities. All of the Un- 
ited Nations share them. 

"All of us here at Jwmc'arc being test- 
ed — for our fortitude, for our selfless de- 
votion to our country and our cause." 

And again our President sounds a 
clear warning to us when he threatens to 
take the national price, wage and profit 
stabilization program directly into his own 
hands if a politics-as-usual Congress con- 
tinues delay enactment of his over-all pro- 
gram to halt the advance in our cost of liv- 
ing. He says: 

WAR m 




Colored Americans have a great deal of common sense — in the

Just so you can write ber 
yourself, I am coinf to ^ve you 
that woman's name, as It was 
^iven to me by a person on the 
platform: Mrs. Harriet Amiger, 
1361: Adams street, Rochester, 
,N. Y. 

' The likes of that we have 
heard in many places. Recently 

ground. Recently in the Forum, 
following our meeting in Roches- 
ter, New York, an intelligent wo- 
man got up and spoke as follows: 

"The speaker has made a con- 
vert out of me. For some days 
I have been a traitor at heart — 
almost wishing that my country 
would lose this war. And why? 
Because I leraned of one foolish 
American who on a bus near 
Scranton had said, when he saw 
a colored woman, the only black 
person on the bus: 'If we were 
down where I cam<e from, she 
wouldn't be riding there.' But I 
can see now that I was about to 
let one foolish and prejudiced 
individual drive me out of my 
whole heritage of the United 

States. It haa never occurred to 
me the awful mistake I was mak- 
ing until today, after the speak- 
er' has told us that this is the 
most amazing democracy in the 
world or in human history; that 
it has the best constitution and 
laws, and the most practical 
equality of races and classes; 
that it has some of the worst 
people, of all races and colors, in 
it, but also some of the best peo- 
ple that ever lived anywhere at 
any time. And there I had been 
about to turn it all over to the 
Japanese just because I had run 
afoul of one of those foolis.i peo- 
ple. I am now changed in spir- 
it and hope, and will look for- 
ward with sanity to our future they have only begun to see the 
and our descendants' future in rest of the picture of their own

While the draft of 18 and 19 
year olds is now but a matter of 
months, the manpower shortage 
has likewise been sharply in- 
creasing, on the production front. 
Secretary of War,, Stimson an- 
nounces it may be^ necessary to 
double the number of women squint at the month of July, th«l 

local attorney had done his best 
to make our speech, which was 
to follow his, impossible by prac- 
tically talking us down before 
we got up, and where he found 
a few minutes later that he had 
utterly failed inasmuch as the 
people reacted to commonsense 
just as heartily as if he had nev- 
er spoken. Some of the young 
people followed us to the railway 
station, saying: 

"Doctor, you have made us see 
something else. We have not 
been hearing about the things of 
which you speak, and have not 
been thinking abiout them. We 
have thought of our country's 
faults to the utter exclusion of 
its excellences, and about our 
wrongs to the utter exclusion of 
our opportunities — about the 
present with no regard to the 
longer j. iture." 

■They began to see that the time 
to come is much longer, vaster 
and fuller thar. the time that is 
past. "You have made a convert 
out of me" does not mean that 
they have done an about face;

Henry Lincoln Johnson, our 
greatest politician since Douglas,

It is true that future genera-

erican faith. That is the cornerstone of 
the Negro struggle for democracy. It is 
precisely in that measure which the United 
States Congress is NOT reflective of the 
will of our people that Congress is an agen- 
cy of defeat, a conclave of obstructionists. 

Remember, this Congress whose dis- 
graceful performance has brought such 
sharp rebuke from the President, txaasts 
well over 100 poll taxers, whose constitu- 
encies have little or nothing t© do with 
their election, and who, through ancient 
seniority rights, control fully fifty per- 
cent of Congressional committees. Let us 
also remember that it is this Congress 
which boasts such known fascists as Ham- 
ilton Fish, Martin Dies, and their stalwart 
supporter and comrade, the Right Honor- 

inant among the first settlers. No 
historian will attempt to deny 
the fact that 10 out of 22 adults 
were of Negro extraction, and 
that 16 out of 20 children were 
likewise of the same persuasion. 

Early history tells us of the 
precise orderly manner in which 
the very formal occupation was 
carried out. '-'First oame Ser- 
geant Josie Navarre, carrying the

les, followed by Corporal Jose

This organization has, in the 
past, done a lot of good work and 
there is a lot for it still to do and 
we are concerned over these re- 

It is a fact that people break — 
go mentally pathological — under 
strains that are too much for 
them and we are aware that the 
job of the NAACP in this time 
of great stress, is a big one, for 

68 years of age, married to a mu- 
lattress with six offsprings. Com- 
ing now to the front, now cor- 
responding to upper ^lain street 
was, first, Alejandro Rosas, an 
Indian, 19 years old whose wife 
is described as a "Coyote Indian" 
and then the home of Antonio 
Navarre, a mestizo, i.e., Spanish- 
Indian, whose wife was a mulat- 
tress with three children. An I 
lastly, the home of Manuel Cam- 
ero, a mulatto, aged 39, with a

man in 1789." 

Let no 'one tell you that we 
have never had a Negro council- 
man in Los Angeles. 

The other day, I stood in front

chance to fight. But the salva-

But if this is to be a world of 
democracies — a world free from 
fear, want and oppression — 
those banes of our social struc-

From the book by 


"Come on, Bessie., We can't stay here like this." ^ 
He stopped and with one hand caught hold of bed- 
clothes. He dragged her across the threshold, and pull- 
ed the door after him, He went down the steps; she came 
stumbling behind, whimpering. When he reached the ves- 
tibule, he got his gun from inside hi^ shirt and put it in 
the pocket of his coat. He might have to use it aiiy min- 
ute now. The moment he stepped out of that door he 
would have his life in his hands. Whatever happened 
depended upon him; and and made the old building creak. 

He felt snug and warm, even 
though he knew he was in dan- 
ger. The building might fall as 
he slept, but the police might 
get him if he were anywhere 
else. He laid his fingers upon 
Bessie's shoulders; slowly he felt 
the stiffness, go out of,^her body 
and as it left the tensity of his 
own rose and his blood grew hot. 
"Bigger, don,t; Don't!" 

.... He lay still, feeling rid of 
that hunger and tenseness and 
hearing the wail of the night 
wind over and above his and her 
breathing. He turned from her 
and lay on his back . again, 
stretching his legs wide apart. 
He felt the tenseness flow grad- 
ually away from him. His 
breathing grew less heavy anJ 
rapid until he could no longer 
hear it, then so slow and tieady 
that the consciousness of breath- 
ing left him altogether. He was 
not at all sleepy and he lay, 
feeling Bessie lying there beside 
him. He turned his head slowly 
in the darkness toward her. Her 
breath came to him slowly. He 
wondered if she were sleeping; 
somewhere deep in him he knew 
he was lying here waiting for 
her to go to sleep, Bessie did not 
figure in what was before him. 
He remembered th he had seen 
two bricks lying on the floor of 
the room as he had entered. He 
tried ^Jo recall just where they 

] we;-e, ■ , ; could not. But he was 
sure thty were there some\vhere: 

! he would have to find them, at 
least one of them. It would 

I have been much better if h/ had 

I not said anything to Bessie about 
the murder. Well, it was her 
own fault. She had bothered 

I him so much that he had had to 
tell her. And how on earth 
could he have known that they 
would find Mary's bones m the 
furnace so soon? He felt no 
regret as the image of the smok- 
ing furnace and the white pieces 
of bone came back to him. He 

i gazed straight at those bones for 
almost a full minute and had not 

, been able to realize that they 
were the bones of Mary's body. 
He had thought that they might 
find out some other way and 
then suddenly confront him with 
the evidence. Never did he 
think that he could stand and 
look at the evidence and not 
know it. 



when he felt it that way some of 
his fear left; it was simple again. 
He opened the door and an icy 
blast of wind struck his face. He 
drew back and turned to bessie. 

'"Wlhere's the bottle?" 

She held out her purse; he got 
the bottle and took a deep drink. 

"Here," he said. "You better 
take one." 

She drank and put the bottle 
Back into the purse. They went 

^nto the snow, over the frozen 

streets, through the sweeping 

wind. Once she stopped and be- 
gan to cry. eH grabbed her arm. 
"Shut up, nowl Come on!" 
They stopped in front of a tall, 

snow-crowned building whose 

many windows gaped blackly, 

like the eye-soclets of emptly 

skulls. He took the purse from 

her and got the flashlight. He 

clutched her arh and pulled her 

up the steps to the front door. It 

was half -ajar. He put his should- 

ed to it and gave a stout shove; 

it yielded grudgingly. It was 

black inside and the feeble glow 

of the flashlight did not help 

much, A sharp scsot of rot floated 

to him and he heard the scrury- 

ing of quick, dry feet over the 

wooden floor. Bessie sucked in 

her breath deeply, about to 

scream; but Bigger gripjped her 

arm so hard that she bend half- 
way over and moaned. As he went 
^up the steps there came frequent- 
'ly to his ears a slighl creaw. as of 

a tree bending in wind. With one 

hand he held her wrist, the bun- 
dle of bedclothes under his arm; 

with the other he beat off flie 

clinging filmy syider weks that 

came thick onto his Mpe ard eyes. 

He walked to the third floor and 

into a room that had a window 

ojsening to a narrow air-shaft. 

It stankof old timber. He circled 

the spot of the flashlight: the 

floor was carpeted with black 

dirt and he saw two bricks lying 

in corners. He looked at Bessie; 

her hands covered her face and 

he could see the damo of tears 

on her black fir^gers. He dropped 

the bundle of bedclothes. 

"U«roll 'em and spread 'em 

She obeyed. He placed the 

two pillows near the window, so 

that when he lay down the win- 
dow would be just above his , 
(head. He was so cold that his 
♦eth chattered. Bessie stood by I 

'■wall, leaning against it, crying. 
"Take it easy," he said. 

He hoisted the window and 
looked up the air-shaft; snow 1 
flew above the roof of the 
house.. He looked downward 
and saw nothing but black dark- 
ness into which now and then 
a few flakes o f white floated 
from the sky, falling slowly in 
the dim glow of the flashlight. 
He lowered the window and tur- 
ned back to Bessie; she had not 
moved. He crossed the floor and 
took the purse from her and got 
the half-filled flask and drained 
it. It was good. It burned in 
his stomach and Ivok his mind 
off the cold and the sound of the 
wind outside. He sat on the edge 
of the pallet and lit a cigarette. 
It was the first one he had 
smoked in a long time; he suck- 
ed the hot smoke deep into his 
lungs and blew it out slowly. 
The whiskey heated him all over, 

aking his head whirL Bessie 

ied, softly, piteously. 

"GiDme on and lay down," he 

He took the gun from his poc- 
ket and put it where he could 
reach it. 

"Come on, Bessie. You'll 
freeze standing there like that." 

He stood Up and pulled off his 
overcoat and spread it upon the 
the top of the blanket for addi- 
tional cover; then swi^thed off 
the flashlight. The whiskel lull- 
ed him, numbed his senses. Bes- 
sie's soft whimpers came to him 
through the cold. He took a 
long last draw from the cigar- 
ette and crushed it. Bessie's 
shoes creaked over the floor. He 
lay quietly, feeling the warmth 
of the alcohol spreading through 
him. He was tense inside; it was 
as though he had been cornpelled 
to hold Jjiniself in Si certain aw- 
tward posture for a long time 
jLnd then when he had the 

ance to relax he could not. 
e was tense with desire, but as 
long as he knew that Bessie was 
standing there in the room, he 
kept it from his mind. Bessie 
was worried and not to her 
should his m^nd turn now in that 
way. But that part of him which 
always made him at least out- 
wardly adjusted to what was ex- 
pected of him made him now 
keep what his body wanted out 
of full consciousness. He heard 1 ^ VieifrA*C 
Bessie's clothes rustling in theiW» T ISITUiS 
darkness and he knew that she ' 
was pulling oflf her coat. Soon 
she woijld be lying here close 
beside him. He waited for her. 
After a lew moments he felt her 
fingers pass lightly over his face; 
she was seeking for the pallet. 
He reached out, groping, and 
found her arm. 

"Here; lay down." 

He held the cover for her; she 
slid down beside him J|id 
stretched out. Now that she was 
close to him the whiskey made 
him whirl faster and the tensity 
of his body mounted. A gust of 
•wind rattled the

TO WN -_. 

MEET WILLIAM P. HARRISON. Mr. Huriaon ipent a week 

Angeles. He and hu charming wife Iftft the Golden State 

. He is an executive of one of the largest hostelries cater- 

g to Niegroes in the United States. He is the manager of the fash- 

QAble Grand Hotel in Chicago. 

He is definitely a race man, a leader of the first order. He is 
of the men behind the now famous annual baseball cl^uic, the 
-West games. These games started about 11 years ago and to- 
have become a national institution. It is these games which 
focused the attention of the baseball world upon such outstand- 
g ballplayers as Mule Sattles:, Satchel Paige, Josh Gibson, Ray 
rown, Nate Moreland and Jerry Benjamine. The East- West games 
ere originated by Gus Greenlee, Negro baseball magnate of Pitts- 

William P. Harrison sits on the council that is fighting each 
ay, year in and year out, to put the Negro ballplayers in the majpr 
jagues. It was Harrison that landed the East-West gam^s for 
:hicago, centrally located and easily acc«ssible for players and vans 
ving in other cities. 


For tireless efforts in this respect; for placing the Negro ball- 
ilayers in such esteem, William P. Harrison should have received 
he Spingam medal. But his activities don't stop there. He serves 
■>n several advancement committees of his city. But he is best lov- 
•d by those individuals who were down on their luck. Like a bro- 
I ner or maybe a father, he would counsel each and give each a 
' take in money to start life anew. There are few of the national 
ewspaper gentry who do not regard him as their patron saint.

Attorney Evrette M. Porter is now a little OPA czar. He was 
-ppointed to the rationing board in this area. He sits in counsel 
vith such men as the Rev. Rakestraw and Bratton. He is the only 
awyer so far chosen from our race to sit upon such a board in Los 
Angeles. Porter is a brilliant young attorney, virile and possesses 
s keen legal mind. 

With men of the calibre of Rakestraw, Bratton and Porter on 

his important board, Negroes who appeal for tires, and what have

Henry B. Gray, who holds the signal distinction of being a 
senior air raid warden in Hollywood, and who conducted a gas-

f this post can be best realized when you know that the Negro 
ropulation is less than one per cent. Mr. Gray as an individual has

Many fans of the colored motion picture plays will remember 
Pete Webster, as well as his former cronies when he was a first 
class waiter here. On the screen Pete Webster had a career as a 
leading man or hero. He was a good lover, both reel and reaL 

Pete Webster gave up that career on the screen and put up his 
waiter's tray and kissed the girls goodbye to join the California 
State Guards. He right faced and left faced with the 7th Regiment. 
Later he went on active auty with the Guards. Tnen his draft 
number came up. He was inducted. Now after four months in the 
Army he is top sergeant, drawing $114 base pay. Moral: Join the 
7th Regiment of the SUte Guards and prepare yourself so that if 
you are cailed you wQl be able to receive more than 50 bucks a 
month. In this man's army, it is what you know and not whom 
vou know. 


Sometime ago, my sister-in-law, Mrs. Theresa Davis, fell and 
injured her knee whUe working as a domestic Because of the 
compensation law she was hospitalized and received pay while laid 
up. Not so long ago that would not have been possible, but Assem- 
blyman Gus Hawkins introduced and had passed a Workmen's 
Compensation Law for domestic workers. 

We cited the above to show that Gus Hawkins does look after 
.his ownw, and to appeal to him. If I am wrong, please stop me. 
Isn't it possible for Assemblyman Gus Hawkins to introduce a bill 
Against racial restriction with regards to real estate? 

With this state in an all-out effort to win the war. Negroes from 
other states have crowded into California seeking defense jobs or 
schooling. Also the wives of soldiers, both officers and enlisted 
men are pouring into the state to be near their husbands. All of 
these things makes the housing situation for the Negro very con- 
gested. The Negro is penned up into restricted ghettos. If he 
works in a defease plant, he must forego all the government's plea 
for conservation of rubber and gasoline by being forced to drive 10 
to 25 miles a day to work, with an additional 25 miles to return 
home. If the racial restriction were moved fronrthis state the war 
machinery would operate more efficiently. Congestion produces 
insanitary conditions, thus germs are breedcd and disease invariably 


With the United States fighting a people's war on many fronts, 
and the Atlantic Charter granting the four freedoms to all peoples- 
California could lead the way by removing the racial restriction 
laws from our statute .books. This is an all-out war and all peoples 
within the confines of continental United States should do their 
part. Poor living conditions, the unnecessary use of tires and gas- 
oline causes, Mr. Gus Hawkins, a loss in man-hours and a drain on 
our national rubber and gasoline supply. 

TID-BITS. Lester Bland, Count Basie, Barber Spencer Browne, 
Honey Murphy and Stack Allen all had a gabfest in the Personality 
Shop last week. They put out the SOS signs due to the fact that 
there had been a drain on their manpower. Uncle Sam was draft- 
ing so many men that they were planning to petition the draft 
boards to call a halt to the draftmg of essential lovers. It was 
deemed too much work on a few men to keep up the morale of 
women whose men were called into the service. 

Browne, however, still retains his crown and title as the best- 
dressed man in Tan-Town. He was garbed the udder day in light 
brown from head to foot 

Arthur Houston gives out with this: "Look at that fellow with 
his priority pants and duration coat." Houson made the trek to 
Las Vegas to see his boy, Henry Armstrong, fight. 


The President named four theatres of war in his radio speech 
Monday and revealed that a little over a half milliorv men are over- 
seas. In the Uttt war we had two million in France and another 
two ipillion ready to go. It may take four million m«n>in Europe 
ailone this time. Another Tnillion In Africa. And that if only two 
tiiettres of war. So it begins to look like that all these boys who 
at one time or another had a mind to roam will get the chance. 

Which reminds me of the tale told by Lester Bland. "A lad

With the opening of city schools and their schedules of athletic 
events comes the unpleasant reminder of rowdyism and racial fights 
that have accompanied these gatherings in recent years. So fre- 
quent and vicious have become | jg the game that must be perfect 

these encounters that they stand 
as a menace to school sports. 

This is not to infer that Los 
Angeles is the only afflicted city 

The attainment of physical 
strength, beuaty of rhythm and 
coordination is not actually a 
sport with the Indian. It is 

As an American Indian I can tes- 1 ritual of the body which begins 
tify that race prejudice is in gen- 
eral evidence with the American 
public. It is an evil that de- 
serves the attention of good- 
minded citizens of "all races, such 
as the Urban league represents, 
for the purpose of protecting 
yoiith and sport from this corro- 
sive blight 

I recall my first introduction 
as athletic instructor to a class 
of well-to-do boys in a sple'.lid 
boy institute. "These boys were 
not "bad" — just normally healthy 
boy . But I was the only Indian 
on. the staff, therefore on the 
"spot." It was apparent that 
th.y thought "Huh, an Indian — 
what can he teach us?" In their 
youthful minds was the query, 
"■What does an Indian know 
about boxing, wrestling, canoe- 
ing, swimming? How can he be 
a 'regular guy'?" My introduc- 
tion was acknowledged by each 
fellow putting his hand to his 
mouth and giving what he 
thought was an Indian yell. 

My first step was to put into 
use the Indian adage which is. 
'Tractice and you don't have to 
preach." I showed them that I 
knew mv sports; that I could hit 
the bull s eye in archery, "make 
a fire without a match, and make 
a fine decorative paddle. 

■When at last I ventured a box- 
ing and wrestling lessone one lad 
refused saying, "Oh, mother 
wouldn't wish me to box or 
wrestle. I might get injured." 

My business was to show that 
boy how a sport could be both 
manly and useful. The result 
was that the lad gained for him- 
self a measure of self reliance. 

At the close of the session I 
left the boys with a healthy re- 
spect for me as an Indian and 
for the sports in general. Also I 
take pride in the belief that race 
prejudice in these lads suffered 
a break down. 

My advantage was in the fact 
that first. I like boys; second, I 
was raised with the Indian view- 
Doint toward sports which is that 
the game (in other words, the 
science) i.*! that which primprilv 
counts and not the player. With 
this viewpoint the spirit of c&m- 
petition weakens: no energy is 
wasted on an adversary. The 
attitude becomes positive instead 
of negative. The ambition of the 
player can soar and soar, for it 

I in babyhood. Early in life we 
learn the value of sun and air on 
the unclothed skin, to withstand 
the rigors of the sweat lodge, and 
the fast. 

My people, the Hopls. are 
famed as runners. Men of our 
villages are accustomed to run- 
ninr 10, 12 miles, and even 
farther, in the mominir to be- 
rin a day's work in their ccm- 
field.i and then retuminr home 
at night. Louis Tewanims, a 
Hopi kinsman, wa^ for years 
Pop Warner's nride, carrylnr 
off all honors in America for 
10 and 15-mlle races. 


The "gang" spirit comes partly 
from the wish to be a part of 
something, or allied to someone. 
It is the spirit albeit misled, of 
allegiance. Boys do not want to 
be left out — they want to be IN 
things. So they chamoion a play- 
er or a side and defend their 
position. That this "taking sides" 
is an ineffectual or an unmanly 
wav is beside the point. The 
point for the gangster is that he 
BELONGS; hence the faction or 

That gangsterism is more prev- 
alent in bleak and poverty 
stricken areas does not argue 
that boyhood there differs from 
boyhood in pleasant and well-to- 
do sections of the city. The- dif- 
ference is not Keograohic but in 
opportunity and in direction. 

Obviously, the Older recreants ' 
are beyond our retrieve. We 
must deal with the school or teen 
a?e boys. The Citv of Grand 
Rapids, Michigan offers an ex- 
ample of how to handle youthful 
gang rule which often vents it- 
self in racial violence.

extra oolice had failed, a work 
and play project was initiated by 
Chief O'Mallev. A plot of ground 
within the district was secured, 
a gymnasium, clubhouse, kitchen, 
athletic field, machine shop and 
other features erected upon the 
policy of "keeping the kids too 
busy for devilment." The ar.ests 
in 1939 were reduced from 139 to

10. — ^Appointment of Attorney 
William L. Houston as director of 
the colored division of the Demo- 
cratic National committee was 
announced last Tuesday by the 

In explaining hii appointment, 
Houston vaid: 

"In contrast with the record of 
the Republican party, the posi- 
tion of the Democratic party on 
the issues of the day is so liber- 
al that I believe a distinct service 
can be rendered colored voters 
of this country in keeping them 
informed on th^ activities of the 
Roosevelt administration toward 
bringing about equal opportuni- 
ties for colored men and women . 
in the armed forces, war indus 
tries, and other fields. 

"The first task of the color- 
ed division will be to assist in 
the election of a Democratic 
Congress in November so that 
the social gains made under 
President Roosevelt may be re- 
tained and enlarged." 
Houston became active in j 
Democratic politics in 1932. An 

effective speaker, he campaigned 
for Franklin D. Roosevelt for 
President in that year, and serv- 
ed as chairman of th« spealters' 
^reau of the Eastern Division of 
Colored Voters in 1936. The 
Hatch Act prevented him from 
taking part m the 1940 presiden- 
tial campaign because he was a 
special assistant to the attorney 
general. He voluntarily retired 
from his Department of JuitiM 
post on Aug. 31.

Nursery School 
to Open at 
Pueblo del Rio 

WPA's fast-expanding program 
for care of women war-workers' 
children sp'.rted ahead yesterday 
with the announced opening of 
three new nursery schools. « 

Following an inspection of the 
V/PA Nursery school at the Long 
Beach Navy Housing project by 
local, state and national officials 
o" the Works Project Adminis- 
tration, the establishment of new 
schools at Avalon Gardens. Pueb- 
lo Del Rio and Hacienda Village 
was reported by H. Russell Am- 
ory, adminl^rator for Southern 

Development of nursery 
schools in the Southls^nd was 
hi ' praised by Jay du Von of 
Washington, D. C., national WPA 
official, who headed the inspec- 
tion group which was under the 
guidance of Amory and Mrs. El- 
eanor Savay. state director of the 
service division of the WPA. 
Mary Tsham, Salt Lake City, war 
public services supervisor of the 
Federal Works Agency' was also 
favorably impressed. 

Maximum enrollment of about 
140 can be handled by the three 
new schools, according to Amo- 
ry. With the Garvey Nursery 
school, whose opening was an- 
nounced last week, this makes 
four recent additions to the WPA 
nursery school set-up which the 
admmistratop said he hoped 
would be increased by 16 within 
the next few -w - eks. 

Pre-requlsites for commiini- 
ties seeking establishment of 
WPA nursery schools are: de- 
termination of how many two- 
to-five-year old children of 
working mothers might use the 

Bill Fails to 
Give Needed 
Wage Hikes 

Contrary to statements made 
in many daily newspapers that a 
bill had been passed giving the 
lowest paid government employ- 
ees a raise ere the provisions of 
HR 6217 recently enacted. 

This was not a pay raise bill . 
but rather a reclassification 
amended to the Classification Act 
of 1P23. 'While this bill benefited 
some it, discriminated against 
those needing increa.-Jes of sala- 
ries the most. 

An example of the inequalities 
nf the bill lies in the fact that 
charwomen who perform the 
lighter duties receive 65 cents an 
hour, while custodial laborers 
who do heavy lifting and clean- 
ing and elevator operators both 
receive approximately 41 cents 
per hour minimum. This means 
that charwomen and charmen 
work five hours a day and six 
days a week, 30 hours in all, and 
average about $36.50 per month. 
A custodial laborer and elevator 
operator work 40 hours per week 
and receive a minimum of $100. 

Previous to the passing of this 
bill, elevator operators and ele- 
vator laborers received a mini- 
mum or starting salary of $1320. 
The custodial laborer was re- 
ceiving $1080 and $1140 in small 
cities, while larger cites paid a 
minimum of ,•"1200. Elevator op- 
erators and elevator operator la- 
borers have been reduced to the 
same minimum as custodial la- 
borers, taking a reduction of 

At the present time the local 
Post Office Department is hir- 
ing temporary employees in the 
custodial department. These 
temporary employees are re- 
quired to work 48 hours a 
week, work holidays without a 
day off in place of it, and re- 
gardless of length of service re- 
ceive no vacation. Time spent 
as a temp does not count to- 
ward retirement in service as 
no money is taken out for that 

school; probable length of 
school day based on worlrinc 
hours of parents; availability of 
adequate housing and facilities^ 
These facts, Amory stated, 
should be learned by the gronp 
or community seeldng the 
school before application to 
the WPA is made. 
The Los Angeles Board of Ed- 
ucation isi co-sponsor of the three 
new schools as well as others al- 
ready established within its jur- 
isdiction. The City Housing Au- 
thority, which furnished the 
buildings, is a contributing spon- 
sor and the State Board of Edu- 
^ c a t i n sponsors the nursery 
school project as a whole, under 
the child protection program of 
the WPA.

»f a parallel tjetween the 
current war and the Civ- 
Q War begun in last is- 

the Civil War ushered in 
the second revolutionary 
period in American his- 
tory. The issue was 

clear: either the Slavoc- 
racy would continue and 
broaden its control of 
the nation or that con- 
trol would be snatched 
away by the rising tide 
of Northern industry and 
its free Labor. 

As Frederick ijougias 
at once recognized, the 
cause of the North was 
the cause of the Negro's 
freedom. How else could 
the indtistrialists break 
the slave competition? 

Emancipation, how- 
ever was not the simon 
pure gift of the indus- 
trialists or was it merely I

of the economic situation

North and South. 

So long as the nature 
of the war was not dear- 
ly defined (before em- 
ancipation). Thousands 
of Negro workers were 
the backbone of Confed- 
erate economy. It was, 
among other things, the 
desire to break that back 
bone which motivated 
the great I>roclamation. 

Even beforehand, how- 
ever, Negro soldiers in 
the Union arnaies demon- 
strated the positive pow- 
of the black man —

Enslaved men cannot

This is the on^ basis 
upon which the Indian

They must know their

the effect that the action

young men m Pasadena are tak- 
ing to visitors from out of town. 
It seams as though these boys feel 
that it is their duty to give these 
out-of-towners a lasting impres- 
sion of Pasadena and not a very 
good one. We have a town to be 
proud of, but how can we be if 
these certain groups insist upon 
infiuencmg others m their belief ' 
that, "This is our town, so every- ; 
one else stay out or we'll put you ' 
out.'' Of course, t.hey have their 
tneir defense, claimmg that the 
same treatment is given them 
whci* they leave Pasaderia. But 
in the end what good does it do? 
It only promotes hard feelings — - 
certainly no good will. It seems 
as though there is enough fight- 
ing in the world over more im- 
portant matters w-ithout havmg 
little disagreements between diff- 
erent cities. We have all heard, 

'■ Do unto others as you would 
have them do unto you. " Well, 
why can't these groups practice 
tills rule instead of agiiatmg and 
trymg to make more troulbe'? 
Perhaps if they knew how the 
parents are objecting, they would 
act differently. For, you see. the 
mothers object to their daughters 
going out with boys taking the at- 
titude tliat some of them have. So 
you see fellows for your own 
good had better take it easy and 
carry a flag of truce from now on. 
After all, you're not the only ones , 
involved — gave the girl a break. ' 

Well, after getting that said, I'll ' 
turn to the lighter things of the 
day. The party Mrs. Blanche 
Duncan gave in honor of Jeanne 
Morrow who left to attend Fisk 
University was strictly on. The 
party, a surprise one. got under 
way about 10 o'clock, with Jeanne 
coming in with those present sing- 
mg, "She's a jolly good fellow." 
Some of those attendin and hav- j 
ing a good time were Thehna Jac- 
kson, Dickie Thornton, Helen 
Jones, Harry Lester. Mark Wil- 
liams, Jackis Bunch, Johriny Bur- 
ton. Gloria Bunch, Doris Prince, 
Hattie Williams, Bobbie Boswell, 
Harold Falkner, Paul Weaver, ; 
Enoch Spann, Carolyn Collier. JT 
T. Morgan and many others. Some 
marvelous punch was served and 
the party can be said to nave been 
a complete success. 

On the previous night. Friday. 
the Dena Debs, gave their Back 
To School party at Parrish Hall. 
Some of those attending were 
Dot Mims. Bob Brown. Creole .An- 
derson, Bill Duncan, Harry Guild, 
James Anderson. Rufus Blake, 
Big Eddie Johnson, and others. 

.\lso during that week Jerry 
Carter and Dickie Thornton gave 
a party at the latter's home. I 
heard it really jumped. ' 

The Paul Robeson FREE con- 
pert tonight at Philharmonic au- 
ditorium will attract a large del- 
egation from Dena. It's a rally 
in support of securing Negro 
rights now so that we may more 
effectively serve the 'Victory 
of our great country. 

Comes Sunday. Sept. 20. the 
Fine Melloneers are giving a tea 
at the home of Carolyn Callier,

the club's first attempt at any- 
thing of this kind and they're

If You Fail to Read THE CALIFORNrA ^ EAGLE You May Never Know It Happened 

^ Whot's Doing in the Younger Set 


The younger set is on its toes, eagerly awaiting die 
famed Kappa black and white formal. As usual, debs 
round town, don't know whether to Wear black or white 
and Randolph Williams and other gents don't know' 
whether tails or a tux will get the point over. 
And. to top it all, about 50 or 

60 haven't received bids as yet 
and are madly begging for them. 
Some of the debutantes have 
purchased new frocks without a 
bid, or a fellow in sight, but they 
know that everything will turn 
out all right and by some meane 
or another, they'll get there. And 
that's just what will happen. Be- 
tween the hours of 12:30 and 
4:00 a. m., the full 400 will be on 
hand, jumping with the Kappa 
brothers at the Elks. 

Kappa man Lowell Stewart 
says the affair will be put on in 
true Kappa style, with the old 
carefree spirit reigning. Wil- 
liam Elkins, Rip Rnssel]. Curtis 
Smith and other Kappas now in 
the armed forces will be missed 
when the Kappa Circle is form- 
ed, but they have not been for- 
gotten. Pledges Lester Wagner, 
Sam Armstrong, and Austin Bur- 
chette will be on hand to do their 
usual side line Kappa cheering, 
along with superior Frat broth- 
ers Boby Green, Lorenzo Morris. 
Johnnie Brewer and Emmett 

Dozens of before and after 
affairs have been planned, and 
the younger set intends to make 
a night and morning of it. Yes. 
the Kappas plan to do it again!

The State Athletic Commission, chaimaned by able Jerry 
Giesler, the famous barrister, should do somethini; to clear up 
the rules covering bouts which have to be halted because of a 
boxer sustaining: a nasty cut because of a butt or a blow. There 
are a number of contradictory rules in the book. A point in 

question is last Friday nig^hfs Juan Zurita-Jlmmy Hatcher tiff 
at Hollywood Legion stadium. Following a clinch in the second 
stanza Hatcher broke looking like something which had just gone 
through a meat grinder. Referee Charley Randolph called for 
the medico, but that worthy was not in the stadium. An SOS for 

a commissioner, or commissioners was also fruitless, those gentle- 
men being in attendance at a meeting in Frisco. Randolph, using 
his own judgment under the circumstances, decided in favor of 
■ a. technical knockout victory for Zurita. The Mexican was ahead, 
iC but ringsiders and referee, were confused as to just what 

"caused Hatcher to spill gore. At times, the decisions rendered in 
such cases have been draws. Some clarity on the point is deemed 
advisable . . . That's a worthy gesture Bill Schroeder, managing 
director of Helms Athletic Foundation, and a leading downtown 
clothing firm have cooked up. The capable and energetic foun- 
dation boss has announced a Prep School Hall of Fame to be lo- 
cated in the store. Among trophies and photos will be those of 
Jack Robinson, Francis Garland, Thelmo Knowles, Wilbur Miller, 

Bryant Allen, Mack Robin.son and Bill Smith, all of whom have 
beeii named by the foundation as Players of the Year since the 
foundation's cooperating All-Southern California Athletic Board 
was established in 1937. All of the players named above are well 
known to football, baseball, basketball and track and field en- 
thusiats of the Southland and the nation. The project is to be 
dedicated on or about Sept. 20 . . . 

"Regards to all my friends," says one of a few lines from

BOWLING EXPERT— Bernice Ray, bowling with a shoe store 
team has attained a score of 225, the highest for women compet- 
ing at the Central Avenue Bowliirg Alley. She is a pupil of Ern- 
est Whitman, radio, stage, and screen star. The shoe store team 
is one of four which figure in the weekly jackpot. Incidentally, 
nager Nate Moreland said today that winter leagues for wo- 
and men are now forming at the Central Avenue Bowl.

The winner will meet Bobby 
Yaeger here next Tuesday night, 
the announcer said. 

And so, veteran Bep Van iJa- 
vern and young Paul Altman 
went out and slugged each other 
for six rounds. Although Klav- 
ern seemed to have had the best 
of it, Referee Frank Holborrow 
called the bout a draw Tuesday 
night at the Olympic auditorium. 

The first round Altman won on 
the EAGLE score card was the 
fourth and, although he battled 
the veteran Hollander on fairly 
even terms in the fifth and sixth 
Klavern appeared to deserve the 
nod. The latter, unorthodox 
styl* and all. was too cagey and 
smart for the Texan, handing 
him a neat boxing lesson most of 
the way.

CALIENTE, Mexico, Sept. 17 

— Every dog has his day, and 
that's the old saying all over the 
world. But Sunday at Calient; 
it was every horse having his day 
to join the Hall of Fame, for in 
the 11th race of the iday, one of 
the co-features on the 12-race 
program, the comely daughter of 
Bistouri threw so much djist in 
the eyes of the greats such as Dr. 
Sticks, the red-hot favorite, and 
the champion. Tenuous, also the 

Caliente D^by winner. Sunny 
Jack. It was nip and tuck from 
start to finish. Slappy, a 10 to 
one shot, set all the pace with 
Iron Heart, daughter of import- 
ed Bistouri, not over a length 
away a'; no part of the mile and 
70-yard event when the stretch 
was reached. 

Little Jockey B. Nash, who 

nized track not long 
his mount all that he naifttad'thj 
game mare responded to e$xjtf 
her little jockey across the fia-; 
ish line « half length ahead Of 
the tiring Slappy, with the Cali- 
ente Derby winner, Sunny Jack, 
third, tlu-ee lengths ahead of im- 
ported Betico. Dr. Sticlts, fhe 
favorite, and Tenuous, heavily 
played second choice, brought up 
the rear. Irt>n Heart paid tire 
longest price of the day, $72.80 
for those that had an iron heart 
to play 1 r. I 

So, now the little mare that 
had been running for $700 in 
claifning races will move up with 
the greats and her pirrture will 
be put in the Hall of Fame for 
improved horses. . 

Well, the boys that are in on 
the "ina," put one over on Gen- 
eralissimo waiter Marty and the 
entire ring in the second race 
when Little Pixie, making her 
second start in life, won the first, 
half of the Daily-Double. Quoted 
at 20 to one on the morning line, 
she was coupled in the field with 
the well-played Valdina Flora 
and only rewarded her backers 
$12.20. but the ring was nearly 
annihilate'' Green Tie, one of 
the popular players, was heard 
to say, "That ruined me." 

Zebedee, who has been trying 
to reach Judge George Shilling 
and say, "Well, here I am judge. 
at last; better late than never," 
finally succeeded when he won 
the third race, the second half of 
the Daily-'^ouble wliich paid 

Well, that's the news, folks, 
for the week. Are you still buy-

Church Support 

j Recognizing the fact that the 
I church by concerted effort can 
, haste the drive towards breaking

many prominent ministers con- 
vened there. It was sent from the 
national headquarters of the So-

Wake Up, United Nations! 

Reprinted front The India News, ed- 
ited by R. Lai Singh, only tnembed of 
the India Natiottal Congress in the 
United States 

"Bound and shackled, 1 am but a hin- 
drance to the very cause I have struggled 
for. Tied to a stake and publicly flogged, 
saps the energv- I would add to the battle 
of the free man against would-be world 
oppressoBs. Thown behind prison bars, I 
become helpless and impotent while on my 
soil the threat of violence, rape and loot 
becomes ominous^ 

"Give me equality, give me the right 
to fight for the things vou fight for, and 
multiply me by 400,,000,"000. The bells of 
liberty and freedom would then be heard 
I from pole to pole! Free men would rise 
i from the grave to smite the tyrants down ! 

I Don't lie to the world about me! 

"Vou hai-e labeled me 'traitor,' 'Qtiis- 
Jing,''and have spewed vicious slander over 
me. ../ have replied only by appealing to 
your conscience. ..I. have hoped to find in 
you the lamp of ilndcr standing, the flame 
iff fair-play. ..You- have snuffed the lamp 
out and quenched" the \ame. ..You have 
turned in urath against me and blotted 
out vital life as you did in an age long past 
when you forced my patriots into the en- 
emy's camp. ..Your guns are aimed at me. 
helpless as you knotv I am. Those guns 
that should be turned against the common 
enemy of liberty and freedom ..All I ask 
\s that a People's Gpvcnuncnt be formed, 
and that a People's Army millions strong 
he raised at once, to fight our common foe. 

"I Need You And Yo'u Need Mc To 
Build A Better World!" 

"You know, as I know, that there are 
many contradictions in the pronounce- 
ments of your statesmen. They were 
niade in good spirit — perhaps with a pro- 
found realization of the inevitable change 
which our social and political forms must 
undergo. These pronouncements have an- 
imated the oppressed peoples of the world. 
But nothing has done nire harm than the 
failure to activate those pronouncements 
— to make those promises real — -while 
country after country fell before the might 
of the Axis. 

"Unless you actually mean ^ to imply 
by your intransigence that I shall still be 
bound and shackled and that you do not 
need my full co-operation ( measured in 
terms of immense man-power and truly 
colossal resources), then our 400,000,000 
shall fall prey to the treacherous cunning 
of the agressors. 

'T beg you to remember that I mean 
the shortening or the lengthening of this 
cruel war, depending on whether I am 
armed and free, or a defenseless slave. I 
can mean the saving of the genius of your 
youth who are now spread over the globe. 
Along with you, I can and will take the 
offensive against the enemy. 

"If the Atlantic Charter, which is the 
spiritual base of the United Nations, is not 
to become cinders in this global conflagra- 
tion, if freedom-loving peoples are to find 
an enduring common purpose, if India 
with her vast material a'#l spiritual re- 
sources is to be fully utilized in common 
with Great Britain, the USSR, China, 
and the U. S. A. and the Nations every- 
where to whom liberty, justice and demo- 
cracy are the life's blood, then let there be 
no betrayal of high hopes, no reactionary 
perversion of proposed principled, no art- 
ful, cynical diplomacy. 

"There must be, brother, a courag- 
eous, forthright, faithful affirmation that 
the United Nations do mean emplmtically 
National independence with the peoples 
of the world. 

Your brother, 

Robeson- Yergan Rally to 
Moke History 

Tonight at the Philharmonid audit- 
orium history will be made for Los An- 
geles. When Paul Robeson and Dr. Max 
^Yergan address a mammoth audience of 
otir citizens raising the specif ic issues of 
the Negro's problem in America today, of 
his brother colonial people thoughout the 
world and voicing a determined, demand 
for a SECOND FRONT now— a mile- 
;:l^one in the city's history will have beer 

*■ r 

want it-^tied to 'real, concrete, specific 
tasks in the anti-Fascifet fight 

The Robeson- Yergan meeting fol- 
lows in logical sequence Monday evening's 
heartening unity rally at' which a similar 
cross-section of the cit>''s population was 
brought into participation. Sigfmf icant at 
this gathering was the instan response of 
the large crowd when definite reforms 
in government policy.or specific support 
of already established policy was brought 
forward by the speakers. Especially im- 
portant to the Negro citizeens of this com- 
munity should be the ovation ^-hich fol- 
lowed a demand for support of anti-poll 
tax legislation and vigorous enforcement 
of Executive Order 8802. When the de- 
feat of Georgia's Governor Eugene Tal- 
madge was hailed, there was a genuini. 
[XDpular outburst. Later in the evening. 
CIO leader Phillip Connelly raised a mil- 
itant demand for opening of an immediate 
second land front in western Europe, the 
performance was repeated. 

LESSON: The people are no longer 
beguiled by lip-service war support. Gen- 
uine concern for in this people's war de- 
mands : 

1-Open that Second Front. 
2-Negro rights NOW. 
3-Liberation and mobilization of col- 
onial peoples NOW. 
These are the yardsticks of a real 
war supporter. -A.pply them to all comers. 

The American People 
Chalk One Up 

Hooray ! Hooray ! 

The good people of the state of Geor- 
gia, despite e%en the limitations of their 
poll tax ballot system, destroyed the very 
symbol of U. S. Fascism in office, the loud 
puppet of the Dupont E. I. de Nemours 
company, his ex-excellency "Our Gene.' 
This signal triumph for the American peo- 
])le was achieved in the midst of our most 
reactionary section, in the center of Ku 
Klux Klax intimidation and a vicious so- 
cial system. How was that victory se 
cured ? And by whom ? 

I ZED LABQK, a fighting Labor move- 
ment which dared to pooh-pooh the phone>' 
removed from public office by ORGAN- 
'white supremacy' issue which Talmadge 

brought forth in an obvious effort to hide 
his Fascist connections. Pamphlets were 
distributed in Georgia factories by CIO 
and AFL unions pointing the suicidal ef- 
fects of race prejudice upon Labor and re- 
vealing it as part of the Hitler, divisionist 
l^rogram for America. Most important, 
however, was the incessant exposure of 
Gene Talmadge as part of the U. S. Fifth 
Column, an anti-war agent of the Ameri 
can Fifth Column. 

There is a lesson in this for the Ne- 
gro people of California. We must re- 
lentlessly identify our enemies with their 
true masters, that same home grown. 
Fascist Fifth Column. Our big job in the 
coming weeks will be the complete and dev- 
astating defeat of the California wing of 
the Talmadge coalition — pro-Fascist gub- 
ernatorial candidate Earl Warren, lackey 
of that great friend of the Negro people 
and general humap progress, William 
Randolph Hearst. 

Down Goes the Poll Tax! 

The Bourbons got themselves thor- 
oughly trouaced in Congress as both the 
the House and the Senate voted to remove 
poll tax restrictions from the soldiers 
vote last week. 

This means that thousands of our 
boys who have never been able to vote in 
U. S. elections may now exercise the basic 
right of all free men. Disfranchised lads 
from, say. Congressman Martin Dies 
Texas district may now cast ballots which 
may remove that particular insult to rep- 
resentative government from the position 
which has hitherto made possible his sab- 
otage of democracy. Then there is the 
case of Mississippi's Whittington, repre- 
senting a district populated by 460,0Cto 
American citizens and elected by 2,000 
votes. Now, out of that 460,000 persons 
a good percentage must be Negroes and a 
good percentage of THEM must have 
been drafted. Now those boys have, at 
long last, the right to vote. And WHAT 
do you think may happen to Neg^o-baiter 
Whittington comfe election? 

Even as the comnlunity continues to 
congratulate the los Angeles postal auth- 

Partidpation in the meeting will be „ _ . . 

shared hf^e Mexican, Chinese, Jewish, onties upon &eir democratic action m ap- 

and the "one hundred percent white Pro- pointing a Negro Superintendent for. the 

«eMant American." Conspicuous by their first time in the city's history, there comes 

absence wiU be the appeasers and the de- an increasing flood of evidence as to the 

• icatists,' The support-the-war issue will seriousness of the underpaid rank and file 

be presented in the jva^ Jhat the people po^ employees for ^ wage commensur- 


Delivered by MRS. CHARLOTTA A. BASS Monday, 
Sept, 14 before a large audience at the Unity rally of the 
Los Angeles Citizens Unity for Victory Committee at

people's war is the development of a genuine national 
unity. Such unity must be a grassroots movement, grow- 
ing out of .the fierce will-to-victory of a people at last 
aroused to the historic tasks of their age and the defense 
of a dearly loved nation. 





With the 'Rubber Investigating 
Committee recommending, in ad- 
dition to nati nwide gaboline r^.- 
tioning, the expansion of synthe- 
tic rubber production to 1,100,- 
Od tons a year, no further de- 
lays should be tolerated in 
iaunching this full-scale pro- 
gram. The nation has already 
suffered from a surfeit oi sucfi 
lime-wasting tactics. The Presi- 
dent's Investigating Committee 
has ctied the fact that although 
hte process of making synthetic 
rubber from alcohol has been a 
long recognized one — and its 
success proven in other countries 
,i— it has been almost totally 
slighted here while post-Pearl 
Harbor debates raged around the 
merits and demerits of other 
processes. Luckily, we have still 
time to rectify past mistakes if 
we make haste. Luckily, we are 
learning in time that victory 
won't come to us on a silver 
platter, that a long, hard and 
desperate struggle still lies 
ahead. And luckily, the Rubber 
Investigating Committee, refus- 
ing to sugar-coat its findings, has 
bluntly informed the nation that 
without immediate action to- ' 
ward conserving present rubber 
supplies and developing new 
synthetic sources, "this country 
will face both a military and ci- 
vilian collapse." Such plain 
speaking will shock numbers of 
people, but if it shocks them 
awake, it will be their gain and 
the nation's as well. 


The cries of the Laval govem- 
French cities by American t)omb- 
ment against the bombing of 
ers reveal the "Made in Berlin" 
trademark. If the raids on 
French industrial centers can be 
successfully represented to the 
people of France as nothing but 
wanton, brutal attacks on help- 
less civilians — as the Laval gov- 
ernment is, in fact, picturing 
them^the way may be cleared 
for that increased collaboration 
the French quisling earnestly de- 
sires. However, far more than 
two years of tiondage under the 
Nazi yoke wfll be required to 
make a ' freedom-loving people 
lose the hunger for the liberty 
that vfas once theirs. In an elo- 
quent outburst against the Pe- 
tainLaval mock government, 
Edouard Herriot and Jean Jean- 
neney have defied the present 
misleaders of France to enlist 
their country on the side of the 
Axis, warning that revolution 
would be certain to follow such 

a step. Free France still lives! 


Not so long ago, as far as Cali- 
fornia was concerned, it was 
housing that was plentiful, and 
work scarce. Today, caught up 
in the biggest boom of its his- 
tory, with tlie westward-stream- 
ing tides of workers still contin- 
uing, California finds the reverse 
situation true with a vengeance. 
Total non-agricultural employ- 
ment in the State has leaped well 
past the two million mark; work- 
ers in the manufacturing indus- 
tries number some 200,000 more 
than a year ago. Aircraft and 
shipbuilding industries have yet 
to reach their peak employment. 
Government housing programs 
are attempting to alleviate part 
of the shortage; in several cities, 
the Bank of America has help- 
fully stepped into the breach to 
finance housing projects. With 
all private construction at a 
standstill, thousands of home and 
property owners, through altera- 
tion and modernization of their 
dwellings, h ive provided criti- 
cally needed living space for war 
workers. Loans for such pur- 
pos . are still available, and with 
. 495 branch banks in every sec- 
tion of the State specializing in 
such service, California has been 
able to turn extraordinary bank- 
ing facilities to good account in 
Qombating the housing shortage. 
More, and not less, such modern- 
izing has become the answer to 
the urgent order of the day, 
"Make room for war workers!" 



The pressure being exerted 
upon King Leopold of the Bel- 
gians to form a pro-Nazi govern- 
ment reflects Germany's vain 
hope of establishing a federation 
of puppet colonies throughout 
E' rope. This thinly maksed des- 
potism would then be presented 
to the world as "proof" that the 
peoples of Europe were now one 
happy family, that, in effect, 
there would be no point in con- 
tinuing the war against Ger- 
many. Such duplicity will col- 
lapse of its weight just as, in the 
end, tyranny must ever fall. 

By applying to State financing 
the same elementary principle 
that every good housewife ap- 
plies to her own budget, Cali- 
fornia is now in the best finan- 
cial condition in history, reports 
State Controller Riley. The se- 
cret? Not spending all of the 
State's income. The result? A 
cash excess of $42 million. Fu- 
ture-prospects? Still more of the 


SAN DIEGO, Sept. 17.— Here 
in this busy arsenal of defense, 
amid the clanging of armies and 
eonstant clatter of riveting ma- 
chines, the hustle and bustle of 
workmen and women working 
night and day to keep the world 
free from the curse of Nazism- 
assembled the leaders of the Af- 
rican Methodist church of Cali- 
fornia for the 18th annual ses- 
sion of the ^uthern California 

With that distinguished prince 
of the church. Right Reverend 
Noah W. Williams presiding, 
among the distinguished prelates 
were the Reverends David Hill 
of Oakland; Childress, of Sacra- 
mento; Runyon, of San Francis- 
co; J. M. Brown, and others. 

The scene of the conference 
was the picturesque White Com- 
munity church in the center of 
one of San Diego's most progres- 
sive colored residential sections. 
This imposing structure, stand- 
ing at the comer of L and 31st, 
with its pretty green lawns and 
flowers, reflects the artistic teste 
of the host and hostess of the 
conference, R«v. Ix5uis H. Owens 
and his versatile wife. 

The conference was opened 
with a brilliant reception in hon- 
or of Bishop Williams and his 
charming wife. Addresses of 
welcome were delivered by May- 
or P. J. Benlobgh, Dr. E. A. Bail- 
ey, and Presiding Elder R. H. 
Harbert. Thp annual sermon 
was preached: by Rev. L. S. Mc- 
Neal, of Lone Beach. Rev. E. B 
Vaughn, of El Centro, preached 
the missionai|y sermon, and the 
eloquent Dr. ' Frederick D. Jor- 
dan pf historic old Eighth and 
Towne, preached the educational 
sermon — a rare gem of oratory 
and logic, 

Friday was given to annual re- 
ports, highlights of which were 
the young people's program, by 
Pro'- Arthur jE. Prince; State of 
the Church, jy Rev. Jordan; and 
the State of the Countrr, by Rev. 
J. A. Dames, of Pasadena. 

Among those who addressed 
the conference were Rev. David 
Hui, of Oakland; Rev. Douglass 
of the Zion AME church, San 
Mateo; Dr. E. H. Childress, of 
Sacramento, ^nd the writer, who 
was accorded the courtesy of the 
convention on the motion of Rev 
J. M. Brown! for the purpose of 
brmging greetings from Gover- 
nor Culbert L. Olson. 

At the bonferenoe Sunday 
School the writer had the plea- 

We cannot say too often what 
kind of war this is, for the cleatr 
kind of war this is, for the clear 
is a bulwark upon which flag- 
ging spirits may sustain them- 
selves in any hour of grave peril, 
and is the only sure shield to 
the pernicious propaganda of our 
enemy and our enemy's fifth 

^^ Those of us who are cit- 
izens of a world that was 
and is to be no more, a world 
half free and half slave, a 
world pregnant with a thoa- 
sand conflicts and rivalries, 
most rise to the challenge of 
this moment unshackled by 
the dead prequdices of the 
past and unfettered by the 
self-interest which Ins lead 
to the present tragedy. In 
the crucible of blood, sweat 
and tears, a new world is 
bom, — we most make it our 
world, a world of the people, 

OiU" enemy^ his vulgar aims 
and brutal ambitions, we know 
too well. There is no free hum- 
an l>eing who is not filled with 
unutterable loathing at the very 
thought of a globe dominated by 
his tyranny. He is Feudalism 
hitched to the science of 1942 
and governed by the law of the 

Clarity upon the nature of our 
own side is more difficult. We 
are a confusion of things. We 
are imperialists frightened in 
the face of Hitler's competition. 
We are naked Moros writing 
pages of glory in the wilderness 
of Batean. We are enslaved In- 
dia. We are free England, Amer- 
cia, and Russia. We are black 
and white and yellow. We are 
the people of the e^rth, the free 
and the bound, th rich and the 
poor, the great and the despised, 
fighting so that our children may 
live as men. 

There is no longer room for ex- 
ploitetion of one on the part of 
another when we are all bound 
together with the solemn ties of 
sacrifice in human life. Divi- 
sions between us all — the anti- 
Fascists ' of the world — can no 
longer exist, for it is such divi- 
sion which is received with de- 
light at Berlin and is a nail in 
the coffin of human freedom. 

We are driven relentlessly to 
the liberation of manliind. -We 
cannot fight for liberty with the 
provision that it is UbeVty for as 
alone. .Men who are not free can 
not and will not fight for free-

we are learning. 

I am the representative thi s ^ 
evening of the largest American^^ 
minority, the Negro people, 13^^^ 
000,000, strong. I feel a peculiar 
responsibilty both to you and to 
them in the intetpretetion of 
of what are the vital war needs 
of these, my people. 

Here is what we think about 
this war: It is important above 
everything that has happened in 
the liistory of the world. It has 
joined our struggle for freedom 
with that of all the people of the 
v/orld. But, most of all, it has 
joined the deep interests of all 
the people of America. We have 
a war to be won. It can be won 
only on the basis of the full and 
unbiased mobilization of our 
whole country, in the factory and 
the field, without prejudice and 
discrimination, for these things 
not only deny the purposes of 
our war but strike dearly blows 
at the actual production for vic- 
tory in America. 

Understanding of the prob- 
lem of the Negro peoirie to- 
day is vital to oar war effort 
— for those who wilfully 
Misunderstand are worthy 
candidates for Hitler's pay- 
roll. There is but one de 
mand of our people today: 
strike from our arms every 
shackle which would limit 
our blow against the Fascist 

There are specific ways in 
which citizens may aid in this 
all-important phase of national 
President's war emergency ex- 
unity! We must all support the 
executive order 8802, which bars 
industrial discrimination on the 
basis of race, creed or color. We 
must do this directly by report- 
ing every known case of dis- 
crimination to the War Manpow- 
er Commission. 

We must support the Adminis- 
tration in its effort to sweep poll 
tax restrictions from thase eigW.j 
states in which they disfranchise;/ 
ten million Americans, six mi 
lion, white Americans. 

The defeat of Gov. Eugene Tal- 
madge in Georgia this week— A 
man who based his entire cam- 
paign upon the worn issue of 
white supremacy— is a sign of the 
times, doubly significant coming, 
as it does, from the deep south. 
Victory will be won as the re- 
sult of a positive, offensive strug- 
gle. The Los Angeles Unity For 
Victory Committee has launched 
that UNITED effort in our own 
city. Tonight my friends, we 

It Is a lesson, however, which are making bad news for Berlin 

• W. J. WHEAtON 

It has taken this ghastly war religions. There is a more po 
to show this United States and, ■" ■ - ■ • • 

indeed, show the world, that this 
is a human world, and that color 
of skin, or texture of hair has no 
bearing on the quality of ablility 
or of courage. 

In this great holocaust which 
has sacrificed millions of lives 
and destroyed untold wealth, 
men and women of every color 
and racial lineage are making 
battle against the foes of human 
fredom. But, a careful reading 
of history has shown that victo- 
ries on the battlefields or the 
defeat of- armies do not thorough- 
ly settle issues arising from race, 
color, and oftentimes different 

families for another year. 

There were few changes and 
no surorises. The only change I 
remember was at the Second 
church, which will be served by 
Rev. Isaacs, succeeding Rev. 
Simoson. who goes to the Kansas 

Here are the most important 
posts: 8th and Towne, Rev. Fred- 
erick D. Jordan; Pasadena, Rev. 
J. A. Dames; San Diego, Rev. 
Louis H. Owens; Santa Monica. 
A. K. Quinn; Long Beach, L. S. 
McNeal; Ward Chapel, Rev. J. 
W. Price: Grant's Chapel, Rev. 
I. S. Wilson, presiding elder. 
Rev. Frank A. Harris. 

A few of the regulars I missed 

are that gallant veteran, Jim 
Wilson; Mrs. Minnie TUcker, 

tent factor: A change in ideas, 
ideals of justice, tolerance, a 
change of the heart and clear- 
ance of the mind. Without such 
change our military successes 
will be futile. 

In the accomplishment of those' 
factors the women are leaders. 
It is their tact, intuitiveness, and 
resourceful minds that will solve 
the human problems for which 
men are dying. Brute strength 
will not solve them. Only that 
unselfish devotion to justice and 
to right with which women are 
endowed can, and will, remove 
the barriers of intolerance, racial 
hates and all other obstacles 
which obstruct the path cf pro- 
gress to a true civilization. 

No other /government has the 
need of such planning as does 
this, our own United States. It 
has been so inoculated with the 
virus of color and racial super- 
iority that the cancer will be 
hard to remove. For some sec- 
tions of the nation it will be a 
very painful operation. But 
there is an abiding faith in the 
ability and, more than that, the 
sincerity of purpose, to achieve 
the tasks and the burdens the 
will assume. California will .._ 
be absent when the roll is called. 
There will be a "PRESENT" 
which has the ring of unmistak- 
able sincerity of purpose. 


Too great emphasis .-annot be 
Dlaced on the part that the young 
Negroes of this, and future gen- 
erations, will be called on to play 
in this new birth of civilization. 
We use the term civilization be- 
cause of this fact: If the history

She was asleep. He reconstructed in his mind the details 
of the room as he had seen them by the glow of the flash-

The window was directly behind 
him, above hie head. The flash- 
light was at his side; the gun 
was lying beside the flashlight, 
the handle pointing toward him, 
so he could get it quickly and be 
in a position to use it. But he 
could not use the gun; that would 
make too much noise. He would 
have to use a brick. He remem-

Participatihg'in a big War Bond raOiy at Denver, Coloradoj July 18, to raise a quarter of a mil- 
lion dollars to purchase bombers to send against the Axis, the American Woodmen played a con- 
spicuous part and purdiased War Bonds amounting to more than $50,000.

of the busiest comers in Denver 
and witnessed by several thous- 
and persons, during which time 
the distinguished flying cross 
was presented to the pilot or 

General Doohttlc's plane which 
bombed Tokyo, the American 
Woodmen's subscription was the 
second highest of the rally which

He had killed twice, but in a 
true sense it was not ^e first 
time he had ever killed. He had 
killed many times before, but on- 
ly during the last two flays had 
this impulse assumed the form of 
actual killing. Blind anger had 
come oft«i and he h»d either 
gone behind his curtain or wall, 
or had quarreled and fo>ight 
And yet whether in running a- 
way or in fighting, he had felt 
the need of dean satisfaction of 
facing this thing in all its fulness, 
of figting it out in the wind and 
sunl^ht in front of those whose 
hate for him was so unfathom- 
ably deep that afted they had 
shunted him off into a comer of 
the city to rot and dies, they 
could turn to him, as Mary had 
that night in the car, and say: 
'Td like to know how your peo- 
ple Uve." 

But what was he after? What 
did he want? What did he love 
and what did he hate? He did 
not know. There was something 
he knew and something he felt 
— something the world gave him 
him and aomettung he Uaaetf 
had; something spread out in 
treat of him and something 
spread out in badi; and never 
m all his life, with this black 
skin of his, had the two worlds, 
thought acd feeling, will and 
mind, aspiration and satsfaction, 
been together; never had he felt 
a sense of wholeness.

Loi Angtin, Calif., Thundoy, Stpf. 17, 1942 Vd. CS— No. 23 Pagt Two-B 

The American people along with their Alliehs are waging 
a global war against powerful armed forces of the Axis natioiu to 
to guarantee to the people the Four Freedoms. The eight points 
t)f the Atlantic Charter insure these Four Freedonu to all peopla 
all nations, all races and all religions. Secretary of State Cordi^ 
Hull has appealed to the American people that racial and religious 
discrimination must cease. That a brotherhood of man should 
be established on this earth. 


Wendell Willkie speaking at the N. A. A. C. P. convention here 
proved that this was not a war between the races as the saint of 
San Simeon, William Randolph Hearst, would have you 
believe. Willkie cited that the United Nations have an Oriental 
ally, the Chinese, and Hitler has an Oriental ally, the Japanese. 
Brazil, with its vast Negro population, has declared war on Ger- 
many. Willkie at this very moment is a special envoy of Presi- 
ident Roosevelt in the Middle East, Russia, all these lands and other 
places telling the people that the Four Freedoms will be given to 
all peoples following this war 


A man and his wife recently purchased a home. They were 
not allowed to live in that home. That was not in occupied Po- 
land, it was not the tyranny of Hitler — but in America. American 
^tizens are not free to enjoy their inalienable right to the pur- 
suit of happiness. Real estate brokers and subdividers all over 
America have decreed in true Fascist fashion that certain plots 
of ground be set aside and adjudged forbidden territory for all 
who are not white. 

In a conversation with that brilliant up-and-coming young law- 
yer, Atty. Everette M. Porter, as to the constitutionality of the 
the action on the part of the California courts in enforcing deed 
restrictions against colored peoptle, I found his opinion to be 
"The action of the Court in enforcing deed restrictions against col- 
ored people violates the 14th amendment of the Federal Consti- 
tution. In that the Court being an agency of the State and act- 
ing for the State lends its aid and effectively discriminates against 
American citizens by enforcing a deed restriction, purpose of which 
is only to prevent American citizens from living in certain areas 
sunply because of their color. 

"In other words, the State, by indirection and collusion with 
prejudiced individuals, enforces a rule of law which the Federal 
Constitution proscribes and prevents the State from doing direct- 
ly. - 


'The United States Supreme Court has held that a law which 
provides that Negroes cannot live in certain areas is unconstitution- 
al and void. Nevertheless, State courts, by the subterfuge of enforc- 
ing race retrictive clauses in deeds have succeeded so far in 
ghettoizLng Negroes, although they know that this indirection is 
just as unconstitutional as a positive law would be. 

"However, this direct and unconstitutional action on the part 
of State Courts can be cured and prevented in California if our 
courageous Assemlyman. Gus Hawkins, will introduce and_ engin- 
eer a bill through the California legislature. 


"A bill which would say in effect, 'That from henceforth, no 
California Court shall have jurisdiction to enforce any contract, cov- 
enant or agreement which has for its object the discrimination or li- 
mi^ingof the rights of individuals simply becauseof their race, re- 
ligion or previous condition of servitude. And which contract, cov- 
enant or clause by indirection violates any Constitutional provision, 
whether State or National and which contract, covenant or clause 
would be unconstitutional, if passed directly by the legislature of a 
state and that all such contracts, covenants or clauses which have 
for their purpose disc:imination against individuals because of race 
is by this act declared to be unlawful'." 

ARCHIE fiAVAGE, director of dance sequences for the Metr«»-Goldwyn-Mayer production of "Cab- 
In The Sky," puts his dancers through their paces as they swing into final rehearsals for "Ameri- 
can Rhapt^Kly," which will have its local premiere at the Mayan theatre, Sunday, Sept. 27. Mal- 
colm H. Nash, dance director for Spike Brothers aad McCoy's Music Town, smiles his approval as 
be looks on. At right, Paul Goodwin, one of the p rincipals of the juvenile group, is tfaowa as a 
drummer in native costume. (Insert) Malcolm H. Nash, who is directing the entire production of 
"American Rhapsody." The twilight matinee, scheduled tor 6 o'clock, promises to be a brilliant so- 
cial affair as well as an outstanding cultural achievement.

man's Chinese theatres. 





Atty. Porter !tCas shown us the way. He has proven that the 
racial restrictive vlauses can be licked. And we have the man to 
do the job, GUS 1LA.WKINS. But Gus will have a tough fight on 
his hands. Real oiate brokers will pounce upon him like barnyard 
chickens upon a pi^iee of bread. He will be like one of thorsands of 
black soldiers in a .'ox hole in some distant land, strafed by enemy 
planes, dodging machine gun bullets with shrapnel and artillery 
shells bursting like peaunts in the monkey cage at the zoo. But 
that black soldier will crawl out of that fox hole and rush against 
terrific odds, charging with hot lead and cold steel. 

Assemlyman Gus Hawkins will be in a similar spot. That black 
soldier is giving his blood and maybe his life that people all over the 
world will be free — including his own native land. That black 
soldier will sacrifice his life if neccessary to give to the world the 
Four Freedoms. The sacrifice of the soldier subordinates the sacri- 
fice of thoe left bhind. 

Hitler speaks of a German race. We should speak of an American 
race. American nation. The great majority of people in hyphen- 
ated America would like to drop the hypen. We mean German- 
American, Jewish- American, Negro-i^merican, etc., would sim- 
ply like to be called "just a plain everyday American." 


But those die-hards who are imbued with Hitler-like psych- 
ology, those Southern reactionaries who still dream of a Confeder- 
ate States of America or those few who still hold a grudge against 
the North, along with the few race-baiting politicians, greedy land 
grabbers. Fascists, and those who find it profitable to hav« dis- 
unity would like to keep America divided. t 

These few disrupt the morale of the arsenal of the world, the 
United Slates of America, by fomenting hate between the Negroes 
and whits, between the Catholics and Protestants, between capital 
and labor, they spread anti-Semitism. These few do not represent 
real America. This powerful few are capable of stopping the Am- 
erican people in the midst of war preparation to fight a riot in- 
stead of that war. 

The Government has decreed gas rationing in order to con- 
serve rubber. But a Negro, along with other non-caucasion defense 
workers, must burn up rubber driving many, many miles to work 
simply because of racial restrictive ciauses. They cannot live close 
to their jobs. 

Everyday we see the American people coming closer and closer 
together in spite of those who would sabotage the magnificent rights 
as provided in our Constitution. We find whites refusing to sign 
racial restrictive clauses in many communities. We see civic groups 
reaching out their hands to black Americans. The Labor unions 
arc doing the same, and we find the doors of churches opening to 
^welcome black Americans, whose husbands, sons, sweethearts and 
brothers are fighting to preserve the Four Freedoms and bring Peace 
pa Earth and Goodwill to ALL Men.

Empldyinenf of Women 

WASHINGTON, D. C. Sept 17.— It is thi policy of the War 
Departm«it to use women employees in all capeinties for. whidi they 
are qtial^ied or may become so by training, t|ie War Department 
announced today. 

As far as practicable, women 
will be employed in preference 
to men of war service age or ca- 
pabilities. However, this policy 
will not limit the employment of 
qualified misn who are ineligible 
for military service by reason of 
age or physical disability. 

War Department employing 
and traiturg officers have been 
directed to "fully utilize, imme- 
diately and effectively, the larg- 
est and potentially the finest sin- 
gle source at labor available to- 
day — ^the ,vast reserve of woman 
power." TJie ability, the spirit, 
and the determination which wo- 
men war workers have already 
shown can leave no doubt of the 
part they are playing and will 
play to win this war, instructions 
t the emplcying officers stated. 

Already, abont 3M,M* wo- 
men are employed In War De- 
partment activities, and as 
many mere can be absorbed. 
They work in arsenals and de- 
pots, producing and assembl- 
ing gnns, planes, tanks and 
ammunition. Tbey are ronning

chant marine. ! 

Fres Forms 



V-Mail letter forms are now 
available in every community 
and on every rural nvail route in 
the nation, the War Department 

Since V-Mail — the fast new 
service for dispatch of mail to 
and from .American forces ov<»r- 
sea.s — was instituted two months 

', ago. the Post Office department 
has been distributing the letter 
forms, and they are now avail - 

' able at each of the 45.000 post 

I offices in the country, as well as 
from rural carriers, without 

I charge. 

I The Army Postal Service urges 
that all persons writing to mem- 
bers of the armed forces outside 
the United States use V-MaU, as 
it is now not only the most ex- 
peditious service possible, but 
saves vitally needed cargo space, 
since this type of mail is much 
lighter than regular mail. 

V-MaU facilities have been es- 
tablished at points of embarka- 
tion in this country as well as in 
the United Kingdom, the Hawai- 
ian Islands, Australia and the

Velda i ^^^^ merchant marine seamen be- 
j^ E I gan last week and continues un- 
til tomorrow. Announced by Ad- 
miral Emory S. Land, war ship- 
ping administrator, the registra- 
tion will determine how many 
men with previous sea experi- 
ence are available for sea duty. 
Admiral Land expliuned 
that dne tn the steady increase 
in the size of the .American 
Merchant .Marine, there lies . 
ahead the necessity to employ 
as many experienced seamen 
as possibi to help man the ships 
earryinr vital war sappties. 
Over 1M.M4 seamen and offi- 
cers will be needed 'o sail the 
33M sew shiiM that -mU be 
bailt by the end of next year. 

"There is no compulsion in this 
regi tiatioi." he said "An that 
w.? ask of these men is that they 
let their country know who they 
are. where they are. and if they 
are willing to return to the sea. 
They will be called only as the 
need for their particular skill be- 
comes acute."

Quality that anpears prominent-

profound nersonaj philosophv

to sunervi-sp and influence oth-

the white Tian's cruel and un- 
fair world — was not his world! 
The Negro's world is yet to come. 
It will come, Negroes will see to 

Such is the theme of a 100- 
page book of fiction out today by 
Deaderifk F, Jenkins, young Los 
Angeles writer, well on his way 
to success and fame. 

One may recall some months 
ago this uniquf literary crafts- 
man shocked a carefree ci'.y with 
a pamphlet called IN SEARCH 
CF A NEW r^AITH, To an ordi- 
nary person this pamphlet would 
have been sufficient for a long 
time. Such is not the case here. 
Jenkins is both a prolific and 
versatile writer. In his little 
booklet he was searching for a 
new faith. In this his first novel 
he has found it. In hiz pamph- 
let he addressed tl* individual. 
In his novel ht is giving articu- 
late meaning to that inevitable 
upsurge of the oppressed of the 
world — especially to Negroes 
here in America. What a job he_ 
has done! With such a writer 
as their interpreter the oppress- 
ed need not despair. 

Turning the pages of this mag- 
nificent work of art questions 
upon questions hit the reader — 
.but not withfut answers — and 
the answers are always good and 
wholesome — wherein lies the 
greatness of this novel. 

The oppressed know their 
plight but do they always know 
th.; true meaning -behind it? If 
they do, do they always know 
how to express it? Can they al- 
ways presen. their side of the 
picture in an interesting manner? 

To our white professional 
howlers of democracy, to those 
white people who would rather 
lose a war than give birth to true 
democracy, this young writer 
will be dynamite for he raises 
some vtry disturbing and shock- 
ing points in his work. Only the 
oppressed could raise such points. 
Only a person involved in some- 
thing greater than himself could 
write like this. Listen to him: 

"I began this novel with a big 
dream and a strong desire— a de- 
sire to contribute my little share 
in teaching the white world true 
Democracy. You see the white 
world is digging their own grave 
daily. I want them to stop this 
mad rush to commit hari-kari 
while it is yet time. Yet, I feel 
I am interfering with Divine 
Providence— for the white world, 
as we know it, is slated to go. 
It must go. It deserves to go. 

"Today, this day, is the great 
test— a long test to see if the 
white human race can yet re- 
deem itseU or if it will reniain 
forever a slave to its own big- 


OB HATE * J *u„ 

As this reviewer turned tn? 
brilliant pages of this much- 
needed publication, he found no 
hate in the author for this white 
world. To the white world Jen- 
kins seems to be saying: For- 
give them Lord for they know 
not what they are doing. So he 
goes merely on his way laughing 
St this white world. Laugh 
white world!" he exclauns But 
you can't laugh,. you cant laugh 
for you are afraid. 

Even thbuigh this work may go 
down in history as a jp^at social 
document^to rank side by side 

owner and his typical white con 
ception of the world. Yes, Jen 
kins, gives you a swe)l story — 
hilariously entertaining. Dazzl- 
ing, intriguing, scintillating. 

Naturally this novel, which is 
titled, IT WAS NOT MY 
WORLD, will be compared with 
Richard Wright's Native Son. But 
this book is as different from 
Native Son as day and night. 
Whereas, a white company pub- 
lished Wright's book no white 
publisher, because of a pussy- 
footing complex, would have 
touched Jenkins' book with a 10- 
foot pole, Negroes will under- 
stand why.

U. S. Cracks Down On 
M-G-M Race Hate Film 


Federal Action Against 
MGM Film Makes History; 
^Urge Shelving of Picture 


The United States Government, through the OWI's 
Bureau of Motion Pictures, has moved against the M- 
G-M film, '"Tennessee Johnson," which purportedly dis- 
torts the life of Thaddeus Stevens, great figure of the Re- 
construction period, the man who first proposed emanci- 
pation in Congress following declaration of the Civil War. 

Lowell Mellett. director of the Bureau, told Louis B. 
Mayer, top M-G-M producer, in Washington last week 
that the film, as currently planned, would be injurious to 
national war morale and especially to that of the country's 
Negro population, it was exclusively learned by EAGLE 
reporters from a source close to the studio this week.

industry, a pattern that demon- 
strates that NeB-o women and 
white women o^ work side by 
side, that Negro women can ac- 
cept positions of responsibility, 
can act as lead women over 
crews of white women without 
having difficulties. The prin- 
ciple of racial equality has not 
been won, but the pattern that 
will eventually win the principle 
is in operation. 

The problem of the past six ' 
months has been to set up the 
pattern; today the problem is to , 
extend the pattern. This is one 
of the new problems, much more 
complicated and difficult than 
the struggle of the past against 
the blatant practices of discrimi-

concerns itself with the reaction 
of Negro women to industry and I 
the adjustment to industrial '

of our community have broken 
down completely the barriers 
against the training of Negro wo- 
men and Negro men in govern-

They have secured training clas- 
ses in our community. These are 
important victories for the fu- 
ture o£ democracy. And not on- 
ly have these training barriers 
been broken down, but Negro 
women are being hired; hired at 
a treater rate and at greater 
skills than men at present. This 
IS another victory for democracy, 
cfespite the fact that there are 
still several large firms who dis- 
criminate against Negro women

for human freedom. We there- 
fore call upon our national gov- 
ernment, upon state and local

der his supervision, there is little 
hope that an honest reflection of 
the historical facts will be rend- 
ered. I 

Writing to the New York Dailjy 
Worker, Dieterle rises to a heatfid 
defense of Johnson. He hol4« 
that production of the film is im- 
portant so that Americans mity 
know that "freedom was n9t 
guaranteed in the Constitution-U 
that men have to fight for and 
suffer — like Johnson — that we 
may learn to know what we ate 
fighting for— the perpetuation of 
of free men in a free country." 

Continuing, Dieterle white- 
washes Johnsons treacherous con- 
spiracy .with the ^lavocracy ag- 
ainst ext*ision of Negro rights 
and the whole movement toward 
democrocy in the South with 
the assertion, "What he wanted 
to do was to heal as quickly as 
possible the wounds of the Civjl 
War and give the South a fajr 
chance of development on the 
basis of small and middle class 

farmers and artisans " i 

But what of the extension c|f 
democratic rights to the Negrp 
peopde? — whose heroic strugglie 
on the Union side Lincoln freeljr 
confessed had won the war. 

Johnson vetoed every measurip. 
which extended democratic rights 
to Negroes. He pardoned thir 
bulk cf Confederate leaders. He 
connived to seat in Congress me* 
who had but months previously 
had led rebel armies against the 
American government. He ord^ 
ered State conventions through- 
out the South at which Negroes 
were excluded and which enact- 
ed the vicious "black codesf 
which all but placed the colore^ 
population back in slavery, for- 
bidding their marriage, owner- 
ship of property, and freedom to 
move about the countryside with- 
out permission of the authorities. 
In his third annual message to 
Congress, Johson attacked the 
Negro people viciously; 
"The Negroes," he said, "have 
shown leas capacity for gover- 
nment than any other race of 
people. _No independent gov- 
ernment of any form has been 
successful in their hands. .On 
the contrary, wherever they 
have been left to their own de- 
vices they have shown a con- 
stant tendency to relapse into 

Are t^ese the words of a man 
whose story will rekindle faith 
in the fight for human freedom, 
Mr. Dieterle? Specifically, what 
are we Negroes to think about 
this herb of democracy? He is 
the brother of Eugene Talmadge. 

This record, when contrasted 
with Stevens', eloquently reveals 
the deep pervrsion of history In- 
volved in the production. 

Stevens was the first to pro- 
pose emancipation of the slaves. 
He fought tooth and" nail for the 
enlistment of Negro soldiers. He 
fought for their receiving equal 
pay with white soldiers. He, 
more than anyone else, laid the 
grounrwork for the 14th and 15th 
amendments. His was the first 
Civil Rights Bill which extended 
American democracy to Negroes. 
Of special interest to us here was 
Stevens, heroic fight to bring 
California into the Union as a 
free State. All his life he defend- 
ed fugitive slaves as a solemn ob- 
ligation to democracy. 

But Stevens' crowning infa- 
my was his argent demand that 
^e jfreat slave plantations be 
divided, among .those .whose 
sweat and toil had created their 
wealth. It was this fundament-

ten percent of the nation's 
morale. Who can ignore ns? 

When we raise the question of 
democratic practices in our coun- 
try today, we strike a new factor, 
-^that these demands of ours 
«re no longer annoying abstrac- 
tions: They are things for which 
our people are pledged to live 
and die. 

What I am trying to sav is 
this: that today, for the first time 
since 1S77. there lies before Ne- 
gro America the opportunity to 
effect basic and permanent 
changes in our position.. This 
must be done within the frame- 
work of a bitter strugfle against 
the Axis. Indeed, it can only be 
done this way or we defeat our 
own ends as well as freedom ev- 
erywhere in the world. 
As .the war issues have matured, 
there has come about an abso- i 
lutely stupendous regrouping of ' 
forces in America. That re- 
grouping has transformed the 
Negro into a political aggressor 
rather than a political victim. 
We, the most viciously, shame- 
fully vicimized group in America, 
throw off the negative protest 
againsa oppression, which has 
been our major activity over the 
past several decades, to appear 
Bi the forefront of progressive 
elements as apowerful deter- 
minant factor in establishing pol- 
icy for the whole -nation. 

To appreciate the immense po- 
tentialities of thepresent hour, it 
is necessary to examine briefly 
the road by which we have reach- 

The original struggle fc^ the 
freedom of our people, which it 
is our task to complete, burst in- 
to a superb realization at the 
time of the Civil War. The fight 
for oud freedom was joined with 
that of America's rising industrial 
class, which contested control of 

Se national go^nment held by 
e reactionary slavocracy. Be- 
fore it were possible for the na- 
tion to become, the lazy rule of 
Dixie's slavocrac;- had to be 
swept aside. Abolition and the 
industrialism joined forces in the 
election of Abraham Lincoln.Thc 
slavocracy revolted. 
From this point forward, Negr' 
people seized the o'pportunit- 
of the day and swept on to free •

; Johnson, near Pittsburgh, Pa.. 
' and in Pittsburgh itself. One 
I hiiindred and si.xty-seven Board

League affiliates registered for 
the whole conference. They 
came from thirty cities through- 
out the country, including such 
widely separated point!! as Lo-s 
Angeles, Atlanta. Boston and 
St. Paul. 

At the closing public s«'ssion 
held in the Stephen Foster Mem- 
: orion auditorium of the Univer- 
1 sity of Pittsburgh, five hundred 
I persons braved-a stormy evening 
; to hear Charles Wesley, Presi- 
I dent of Wilberforc<» University, 
and Eduard C. Lindeman of the 
New York School of Social Work 
speak on the topic, '"The Neero 
American Goes to War... Mr. 
Wesley emphasized the fact that 
today's war against Fascism is on- 
ly a conunuation of the histori- 
cal struggle of the ■"little people 
against autocratic rule by self- 
ish vested interests." The Civil 
War. he declared, was more than 
simpiy a struggle for the elimina- 
tion of slavery. The Negro slave 
found himself- allied with north- 
ern interests that wished to free 
him from chattel slaverj-. but 
which plarined a subsequent, eco- 
nomic serfdom, including white 
as well as Negro workers. In 
this wai". Dr. Wesley pointed out, 
Negro Americans are fighting 
against the inister threat of a 
fascist dominated world and re- 
cognize clearly that some of the 
Negro's own allies must be reck- 
oned with as enemies after the 
war ' is over- "Neverthless." 
stated the Wilb^forCe President, 
"the Negro mtist fight Fascism 
tQdar in order to kmiltf democra- 
cy tMnorrovr. The Negro citi- 
zen demands the ri^t to fight 
not only as a draftee but also as 
an enlisted man in aQ branches 
of the armed (ervkes and in alt 
win^i of war indost^." 

Prtrfetior Lindeman described 
this -war »s "horizontal as well 
a s vertical. It is not . only a 
struggle betw^een nations with 
differing ideologies, but also be- 
tween drfferinig interests within 
the warring nations. The little 
people of America are aligned in

little people of France, En&land. plan for p^ace. for our young [ white workers.

fighting this war. we must also war tougher in spirit and smart- 

er in understanding of theit' 
world than ever before. They 
Will have some serious questions , 
to ask, not only Negro young 
men, but whites as well We 
shall be wise if we ve prepared 
to answer those questions and 
answer them intelligently." 

At the closing Camp session, 
official resolutions were adopted 
by the Conference for the atten- 
tion of the Executive Board of 
the National Urban League. The

, In opening the Conference. Les- 
ter Granger. Executive Secretary 
of the National Urban League, 
set Victory for Democracy as the 
Negro's most important objective 
at this time. "No special racial 
objective,"' he declared, "is so 
important at this time as 'Victory- 
for Democracy. We commit our- 
selves to an all-out war effort. 
This does not mean that we will 
retreat from one single social 
gain already made or cease to 
press for new social gains. We 
continue even in the midst of 
of war to fight for the Negro's 
right to work, live and die on the 
basis of American equality. For 
democratic victory connot be a- 
chievpd unlescs the situation of 
the Negro American is radically 
improved. Brown .Americans 
throughout the country are fill- 
ed with a burning anger, a re- 
sentful bitterness that makes the 
task of leadership a difficult but 
all the more important resoon- 
sibility. That anger must not be 
silenced for it is a righteous one. 
But It must not be allowed to de- 
generate into blind hatred. Blind 
hatred is a dangerous weapon, 
which turns and strikes back up- 
on the user as often as it injures 
the opponent. The resentment 
of ^groes must be directed into 
constructive channels of action. 
It IS the genius of the Urban Lea- 
gue movement that the League 
can point to definite steps all 
along the way as the means of 
reaching our ideal bjectives."

Chase, Birch in Rematch at Olympic 

Jack Chase and Bobby Birch 
will step into the rin|f for a re- 
match next Tuesday night at the 
Olympic auditorium in what 
looms as one of the best fights of 
the year-. 

BracTveted with the top fight- 
ers of the country, these two lads 
gave the fans a sizzling siuglest 
when they met recently at the 
Olytrpic. The tide of battle see- 
sawed back and forth with the 
final decision going to Chase. 

Since then Birch has been 
getting a few bouts under his 
belt so that he is confident now 
that he can handle Chase. H 
just came from San Diego 
where he tangled with Eddie 
Booker in a close and hectic 
tiff for the sUte middleweight 

Then, in the third race, a well 
played second choice, Gravania, 
was the name, won and the books 
took another lacing. And then, 
the form player nearly annihilat- 
ed the ring when the even money 
shot. Circle Car. won the fourth. 
You could hear the bookmakers 
say. "Bring on some more mon- 
ey." But cenial Generalissimo 
Walter Marty iust smiled.

CALIENTF Mexico, Sept. 24. 
— For the second Sunday in suc- 
cession the boys that are on the 
"ins." nearly wrecked General- 
issimo Walter Marty's laymen. 
From the clubhouse o the com- 
bination book, they not only 
dropped the big iron men. known 
as dollars, but the two-dollar 
bills and tlie traveler's checks 
that are mostly used in betting I 
at the border course since the ! 
new nrd^r went through about 
certain kinds of money to be ^ 
takpn into Mexico. 

Well, the fcmys that knew for- 
tified themselves at each book 
and when the price.« went up 
they started to lay it in on a 
horse called Draco, who opened 
at 50 to 1. then down to 30 to I. 
Still, the ones that knew kept 
betting until the price was 15 tn 
1. Then they started putting it 
into the mutuel.s. Well, folks, to 
make a long story short and take 
you out of your suspense, the 
horse won. and a bright sunny 
day was turned into clouds for 
the books. 

The ones that put over the 
good thing were all smiles and 
began singing. 'I Found a Mil- 
lion Dollar Baby in a S v n 
Hundred Dollar Claiming Race," 
while the bookmakers sang "You 
Done Me Wrong." 

Well, that wasn't all. In the 
very next race, before the clouds 
had a chance to clear, another 
small coup was made on Golden 
Shoe, quoted at 30 to 1 in the 
books and groupied in the field 
betting, won and paid $10^.00.

St. PaujV 
Pastor Bock 
from Rest 

Sunday, Sept. 13, was a glori- 
ous one in St. Paul Baptist 
church. The services throughout 
the day were well attended. The 
members and friends were agree- 
ably surprised to see Pastor S. A. 
Williams on the rostrum at the 11 
o'clock service. Many of them 
were under the impression that 
he^ was in Portland, Ore., un- 
aware of the fact that he had 
been suddenly called home to the 
bedside of his wife. He arrived 
the day before. 

His coming home was un- 

•firHMBsday, Sfept 10, in the 

-ifeuitifal new' home of Trinity 

Baptist church, the missionary 

society was hbstessi to the wo- 

ns«i of Second Baptist Mission- 

" ary a)cie"ty. 

This was truly genuine in ev- 
"tify respect. The president, Mrs. 
Ora Westfield, had arranged a 
progran^ suitable for the occa- 
sion. The vice president, Mrs. 
Tacker, • gave the welcome ad- 
dfes. ^&s. Emmett Johnson, 
vice president of the Los Ange- 
les district, responded. Mrs. J. 
L.'Caston, wife of the pastor, had 
charge of the music. 

When they had completed their 
part of the piOgram, they called 
on members of the Second Bap- 
tist to share with. them. They 
responded as follows: Mrs. Ella ' 
Van Vactor brought a L:autiful 
lesson on courage from the study 
book. '-The Worker"; Mrs. Lois 
Williams sang very sweetly, "My 
Desire": Mrs. Lillian Stewart, 
state director, spoke on "What 
Christian Friendliness Means to 
the Church and the Community." I

Jesus Christ." 

This rapid improvement was
