Jailed, But Unrelentjiig ! 


The se^rejration case which was re- 
ported hinth Kenerally and editorially 
in iheye columns June 25th, 'in whicji 
it was stated that a body of white 
men of the neiKhborhoofl had formed 
a re^Jtrictive ors:anization, came to 
a climax Wednesday in a shootinjf af- 
fray. I 

The oiffranization, known ^s the 
South-west C. of C. had repeatedly 
asked and ordered Mr. Menfis Carrere 
living at 721 W. R5th Street to move.

Great News 
I Uberia 



— A radiant vision of bhishes and din- 
)>ie8, little Miss Marcia Pmitt of 2224 
Hooper avenue, gracefully accepted 
the apttellation, "Perfect," from the 
lips of^. J. Smith, a critic of suffi- 
cient experience for his word to car- 
ry real' weight m Los Angeles. .But 
MT. Smith, was speaking of the Mar- 
cel waves that Miss Pruitt puts i,. his 
wife's hidr, in her up-to-date little 
beauty shop at 23rd and Hooper Ave. 

However, liis& Pruitt is no le.ss per- 
fect in her portrayal of "Anita,"^ lead- 
ing character in the dramatic sensa- 
tion "Easy Money," to be shown at 
Gamut And., Monday nig^t, Augiust 
23rd. Uni^ally fortunate were those 
in charge of selecting the cast for this 
play, in s«i|uring the services of Miss 
Pruitt, for, this young lady is really 
dramatic, really talented, really. beau- 
tiful. », 

" Mr. Fitdingh L. Banks, president of 
the well l^iown i^t Side Realty firm 
who plays opposite Miss Pruitt, as 
Mr, Samuel Wellington, a handsome 
and wealthy but selfish and dissipat- 
ed totcheldr, looks the part m exact- 
ly to his "miJM.up" and.%^a.JtJ» veil 
'oo the stage, ftiat Mr ' Bankswill have 
to look to his reputation in Los Ange- 
les, after Monday night, August 23rd. 

"She was just bom for her part," 
is the comment passed upon the act- 
ine^of Dr. Annie Leggett,- well-known 
in^he pr<ofessional and social set of 
Los Angelas, in her role of the rich, 
haughty, ^but kind-hearte<i society 
matron, in whose employ "Anita" 
serves. 

Miss Thelma Brown, daiIS:hter of 
Rev. L. B. Brown, pastor~6f the Beth 
Eden Baptist Church, carries her au- 
dience with her and there is scarcely 
a dry eye in the house, when she fin- 
ishes her dramatic recital of the ex-- 
periences through' which she passed 
as the wife of a soldier hung as a 
participant in the Houston Riots. 

Fre.'ih as paint and haughty as a 
queen is Miss Portia Pruitt, as "El- 
s'e," a white school mate of "Anita's" 
.and conceit^ fiancee of Mr. Samuel 
Wellington this ybuhg lady really 
plays her part and no • one seeing 
"Easy Money" on Monday nite, Aug. 
23rri will doubt the fact 

Very tired, very sick, very spent, 
and ill is Mrs. Hazel Temple, as the 
bed>^ridden invalid mother of Anita 
and there is no better address in the 
entire production, in their par^ than 
this yerv versatile little matron. 

Miss Ettaford Sanders, is nni-kead- 
ed in reality and she is more than red- 
headed in her denouncement of Ne- 
groes, as the native southern woman 
visiting MrSj Wallinelon. This young 
lady has a very difficult part which 
she plays exceptionally well. 

A recital of characters who take 
their parts with ability would not be 
complete without mentibhing Mrs. 
Sarah Garrott »« Mrs. Tamer. Mrs. N. 
.A. Hawkins as Elsie's mother and lit- 
tle Jane Christian as a little girl livr 
ing near "Aniti."

qualities that go to make up a peace-

Until thfe' time of her death. 


mentally, as wherl 'she was but a 
young woman. 

According to the daughter of the 
deceased. Sister Elna. Allen was born 
a slave \o one Mr. Datliff in Lexing- 


and 7 davs old at the hour of h«r" 
death. Which oecurM 4 A. M. Mon- 
day, June 7th, 1926^ at 1228 Compton 
avenue. f -. • 

Sister Eliza Allch was the mother 
of eleven children. She is surviwd 
by one dau^ter, Mrs. Permele iSmfth 
with whom she resided; one grandson; 
one granddaughter and three great 
grandsons. 

Mother Allen hai always been j/ 
Sabbath keeper, religiously speaking, 
being reared such by her owner, him- 
self a 7th Day Baptist, 

Tn 1,006 Sister Allen came to Cali- 
fornia, and in this same year connect-

heard. Sister ^!4^y Anna Mei)chan 
was at the bedside when she bi^athed 
her last breatth. 0he described the 
scene as having been a peaceful one, 
just as if she had resignedly relaxed 
into the arms of Jefus.

worker, and at her advanced age went 
to Redbndo /Beach, Venice, Glendale, 
Ocean Park and Hollywood selling the 
literature for her church, she made

With the incoming nionth, August, 
the aspirants for political favor have 
renewed their energy in the game of 
vote catching. The three candidates' 
for -gubernatorial honors — C^ C. 
Young, Rex Goodcell and the present 
incuim>ent. Friend Richardson — are 
making a thorough canvass of (he 
.state and promises, galore are greet- 
ing the ears of Mr. and Mrs. Citizen. 
Judging from the blowing straws 
Young seems to have a mite the best 
in the going. He has .shot the econo- 
my claims of Richardson fijil of holes 
and has corraled a great following on 
his stand for the Boulder Dam pro- 
ject. C. C. Young has yet to show 
color or racial bia.s which cannot be 
said df the incumbent. It is alleged 
^at Friend Richardson in taking in- 
iio consideration the appointment of a 
colored man to a judgeship lost sight 
of capability and made the assertion 
that "hfe did not thmk that the time 
was ripe to appoint a man of color to - 
such a position." But the governor 
had no hesitancy in making a boot 
black stand a political controversy 
which was carried to the Supryne 
Court of the State. It .seems that 
there is a racial complex in the Gov- 
ernor's makeup and a color biaf-which, 
in his opinion, determines fitness. It 
will speak wyll for the dignity of the_ 
particular p^ple whom he has sought 
to humiliate to repudiate his efforts to 
retain office.

SHERIFF TR.'.EGER LOOKS LIKE 
100 TO 1 SHOT TO SUCCEED 
HI.MSELF 

.\s the cahjpaign moVes on the 
campaign for Sheriff shows W. L. 
Traegerthe incumbent with a com- 
manding \fa& which bids fair to hold 
out to the end and there are many of 
the sherifTs friends who declare that 
he will again emerge victorious by 
election at the primaries. 

The fact remains that as you move 
about, with your ears to the grass 
roots, 50U hanily ever hear a discord- 
ant note when the sheriff fight is men- 
tioned. They all- say TRAEGEKl 

At the various meetings throu^iout 
the county the Traeger spirit is in 
the air, as a matter fact, no other 
name is barely ever mentioned. There- 
fore it seems to be tiie consensus 06 
opinion that Traeger is on his way.

PREACHER L. B. BROV/N LN THE 

SPOT LIGHT CLAIM TO SPEAK 
FOR 2«,M0 GOU>RED VOTERS 

Right on the heels of our editorial 
reproduction from the "Chicago Bee" 
and comment thereon, here comes a 
preacher true to form, speaking, so he 
says, for 20,000 Colored voters and he 
«ves his cndorseijent to somebody 
for same office, an£if this preacher 
deHrers full valnffSf his strength, 
doubUess Justice^ ^rtis will gather 
one vote. 

' It is the sam^'old storv^and we are 
loath to tell kr but the Reverend has 
stepped out oin the battlefield of poli- 
tics-and must be able to .stand the gaff 
or get out of the way. • ' 

The rea«on.we say this is the fact 
that there i% not one "ounce of truth 
bt the whole situation. His statement 
jn the Daily is abenrd. 

The proposition lines up to the. min- 
ute ■with our reproduced editorial on 


such hog-wash as this out in the daily 
press cannot escape the odiom sug- 
gested in the .'■aid editorial. 

Here are the statements as publish- 
ed in the L. A. Times and the Daily 
News: 

"Judge Curtis Given BacSing of 
iNegroes 

According to a letter received yes- 
terday by H. E. Cutcher, secretary of 
»the Curtis campaign committee, Rev. 
L. B. Brown, chairman of the Negro 
Industrial Convention to be held at the 
White Sox ball park. Thirty-eight St. 
and Compton avenue, said that as 
spokesman for the 20,000 California 
Negroes to attend the convention, 
Judge Je.'se W. Curtis, as.sociate jus- 
tice of the Supreme Court of Califor- 
nia and candidate to succeed himself 
at the primaries the 31st inst., is 
unanimously indorsed by them. In 
aildition to this indorsement, iWilliam 
ibbs McAdoo, Frank P. Flint, Marco 
Hellman, Susan Dor.sey, Ida May 
Adams, fe. W. McNabb, Benjamin 
Bledsoe and others have given their 
endorsement of; Justice Curtis' can- 
didacy. ' 

Negroes Indorse Criswell 

The California Negro Industrial and 
Educationaf Exposition has indorsed 
the candidacy of Ralph L. Criswell, 
Republican candidate for Cffngress 
from th(e Tenth District, according to 
la letter received at the Criswell head- 
quarters from L. B. Brown, secretary 
of the board of directors of the expo- 
sition. 

Now, we have been content to let 
things slow along arid the people to 
get their own information about some 
so-called Industrial Association, which 
has yet to dennnostrate its existence, 
but when this embryo organization 
goes forth to shear its sheep without 
demonstrating and attempting to hi- 
jack in the political field, we must 
call its hand. 

Our advice brother, is, if you are 
the promoter of industrial conven- 
tions, make good at that and cut out- 
this misrepresentation about 20,000 
Negroes endorsing anybody. It comes 
with bad grace and is a reflection on 
our race. 

Read well "the two endorsements; 
Rev. L. B. Brown says 20y000 mem- 
bership endorses >• Judge Ctjrtis and 
the same organization endanes Ralph 
Criswell. i- 

No^, as a matter of fact, if Brown 
did touch the.se candidates! or their 
-managers up for the iron I men, it 
should be a lesson worth while. For 
if perchance some real eiifeting and 
worthwhife proposition ^^ad been put 
up to them they would much prefer 
the bunk proposition, to the jgood one. 
The only reason^ we take oeisasibA ifi- 
get in on the game is the fact that 
such conduct must be ejxposedvor a- 
.sad reflection is upon all of u^. 

Now, we are not flghtii 
I Brown lat «ll< «e are ete 
the sitQatioii Ofuinjft and we 'do not' 
doubt for-obe jBlnt that iwprtbody 
M usmg this ippMltiM Industrial As- 
sociation for jtheir own selfiiH ends,

^ That the use of electric |>owcr and 
light in Los .Angeles' homes, stores 
and factories'has more than doubled 
in the jiast five years, is revealed in 
a statement filed with the Water and 
Power Commission by Chief Kleclnc- 
a! f;ngineer E. F. Scattergood of the 
.Municipal Bureau of Power and Light, 
who draws attention to the rapid rutf 
srt which this city is continuing to 
grow, as well as a remarkable in- 
crea.~e in the |»ercapita consumption 
•)f elecUical energy here. 

Declaring that the homes, stores 
an<l factories-of Los .Angeles are tie- 
manding every horsepower of elec- 
tricity that can be made available, Mr. 
Scattergood .stated that the Power 
Bureau mu.st be permitted to develop 
additional hydro-power now available 
along the Owens River A(:ueduct and 
provide additional facilities for the 
handlintr of this energy within the 
c.ty itself. 

During the year 1921, Mr. Scatter- 
good 'jjointed out, the peo))le of Los 
Angeles consume<l approximately 
3.50,000,000 kilowatt hours of electric- 
ity for all purposes, exclusive of the 
energy used by the .street railw'ays. 
During the fir.st six months of 1926, 
electrical users in this city, exclusive 
of the street railways) had already 
consumed 370,000,000 kilowatt hours 
of this energy. 'This reveals, it was 
shown, that for the entire year of 
1926, Lo.s Angeles people will con- 
.-fume more than twice as much pow- 
er and light as they did five years 
rfgo. 

■^he amazin gincrease m the use 
otelectric power and light in Los An- 
geles during the past five years dis- 
closes not only the rapid growth of 
our city,'' .said Mr. Scattergood, "but 
also the fact that the people are in- 
creasing their per capita consump- 
tion of electrical energy. 

"Low rates for power and light 
aeri^f6 has made electricity a con- 
jrenience in every Los Angeles home, 
rather than « luxury. In Los Ange- 
les, -electricity has taken its place as 
the unfailing servant in the home. 
The home manager has come to use 
electrical energy for an almost un- 
limited number of purposes in doing 
her household duties. 

"This increasing demand for pow- 
er and light, placed upon the Power- 
•r Bureau the duty of providing addi- 
tional supplies of this energy to meet 
our present needs, to say nothing of 
our rcqtiirements in the near fatpre. 

"An increase in the demand for wat- 
er, in Lo6 Angeles is resulting ip a 
Mwater flow of water thronj^ the 
Owens River Valley .Aqueduct. This 
indreased volume of water, in turn, 
presents to the Power Bureau Um op- 
portunity to enlaittt its power doveN

EASY MONEY"

With the eyes of everyone in Los

the two atmospheric prologues of 100 
characters, which precede the iday 
proper, are more beautiful, more n6v- 
el and * more entertaining than any- 
thing of like nature ever witnessed in 
the United States. Beautiful cos- 
tumes, these prdlogues have- them, 
perfect settines, thev are not mi.ssina: 
(even if Amie was), real dramatic 


talent, it is there, perfect voices, won- 
derful forms, are included. Diaraa, 
suspense, surprise, comedy, pathos, m- 
struction, all packed into one evening's 
entertainment, and wh^n the curtain

A.s the campaign ' mpVes on the 
campaigp for Sheriff, snows W. L. 
Traeger \the incumbehtiwith a com- 
manding lead which bids fair to hold 
out to the end ami there are many of 
the sheriflTs friends who declare that 
he will again emerge victorious by 
election at the primaries. 

The fact remains that as you move 
about with your ears to the grass 
roots, you hardly ever hear a discord- 
ant note when the .sheriff fight is men- 
tioned. They all say TRAEGEK! 

At the various meetings throughout 
the county the Traeger spirit is in 
the air, as a matter fact, no other 
name is barely ever mentioned. There- 
fore it seems to be the consensus of 
opinion that Traeger is on his way,

PREACHER L. B. BROWN LN THE 
'SPOT LIGHT CLAIM TO SPEAK 
, FOR 20.090 COLORED VOTERS 

Right on t^e heels of our editorial 
reproduction, from the "Chicago Bee" 
and commeiit thereon, her^ comes a 
preacher true to form, speakiny, so he 
says, for 20,000 Colored voters and he 
gives his endorsetjent to 8omeb6dy 
for some office, an^if this preacher 
;*fiTers full valoedlf his strength, 
'doubtless Justice iSurtis wiM gather 
one vote. 

It i.<! the .<:am$ old story and we are 


such hog-wash as this out in the daily 
press cannot escape the odiom sug- 
gested in the said editorial. 

Here are the statements as publish- 
ed in the L. A. Times and the Daily 
News: 

"Judge Curtis Given Backing of 
Negroes 

.According to a letter received yes- 
terday ^y H. E. Cutcher, secretary of 
»the Curtis- campaign committee. Rev. 
L, B. Brown, chairman of the Negro 
In<iustrial Convention to be held at the 
White Sox £all park. Thirty-eight St. 
and Compton avenue, said that as 
spokesman for the 20,000 California 
Negroes to attend the convention. 
Judge Jesse W. Curtis, as.sociate jus- 
tice of the Sujjreme Court of Califor- 
nia and candidate to succeed him.self 
at the, primaries the 31st inst., is 
unanimously indorsed by them. In 
adilition to this indorsement, William 
ibb».-McAdoo, Frank P. Flint, Marco 
Hellman, Susati Dor.sey, Ida May 
Adams, S. W. McNabb, Benjamin 
Bledsoe and others have given their 
endorsement of Justice Curtis' can- 
didacy. 

Negroes Indorse Criswell 

The California Negro Industrial and 
Educational Exposition has indorsed 
the candidacy of Ralph L. Criswell, 
Republican candidate for CSngress 
from the Tenth District, according to 
a letter received at the Criswell head- 
quarters from L. B. Brown, secretary 
of the board of directors of the expo- 
sition. 

Now, we have been content to let 
things slow along and the people to 
get their own information about some 
so-called Industrial Association, which 
has yet to demnostrate its existence, 
but when this embryo organization 
goes forth to shear its sheep without 
lemoiistrating and attempting to hi- 
jack in the political field, we must 
call its hand. 

Our advice brother, is, if you are 
the promoter of industrial conven- 
tions, make good at that and cut out 
this misrepresentation about 20,000 
Negroes endorsing anybody. It comes 
with bad grace and is a reflection on 
our race. 

Read ^ell the two endor.sements; 
Rev. L. B. Brown says 20U)00 mem- 
bership endorses -Judge Curtis and 
the same organization endorses Ralph 
Criswell. i- 

Now, as a matter of fact, if Brown 
did touch these candidates or their 
managers up for the iron men, it 
should be a lesson worth \rtule. For

BIG INCREASE IN 
; POWER IN LA. 

That the use of electric power an.l 
light in Los _.\ngeles' homes, stores 
and factories "has m.ore than doubled 
in the past five years, is reveale<l in 
a statement filed with the Water and 
Power Commission by Chief Kleclric- 
a! Engineer E. F. Scattergood of the 
.\Uinicipal Bureau of Po->ver and Light, 
whq ilraws attention to the rapid rate 
srt wb.ich this city is continuing to 
grow, as well as a remarkable in- 
crease in the percapita consumption 
of electrical energy here. 

Declaring that the homes, .stores 
and factories of Los .-Angeles are lie- 
mandi«ig every hor.?epower of elec- 
tricity thatlcan be made available, Mr. 
Scattergooni stated that the Power 
Bureau mu.«t be permitted to develop 
additional hydro-power now available 
along the Owens River A(;ue(luct and 
provide additional facilities for the 
handling of this energy within the 
c.ty itself. 

During the year 1921, Mr. Scatter- 
good pointed, out, the people of Los 
Angeles consumed approximately 
350,000,000 kilowatt hours of electric- 
ity for all. purposes, exclu.sive of the 
etiergy used by the street railways. 
During the flr.st six months of 1926, 
electrical users in this city, exclusive 
of the .street railways* had already 
consumed 370,000,000 kilowatt hotws 
of this energy. This reveals, it was 
shown, that for the entire year of 
1926, Los Angeles people will con- 
sume m^re-tlian twice as much pcTw- 
er^andMighta5"thei_dirt five years 

'"The amazin gincrea.se 1o the use 
of electric power and light irt\Los An- 
geles during the past five yeiws„dis^ 
closes not only the rapid growth of 
our city,'' said Mr. Scattergood, "but 
also the fact that the people are in- 
creasing their per capita consump- 
tion of electrjcal energy. _ . 

"Low rates for power and light 
servjpe has made fclectricity a con- 
venience in every Los Angeles home, 
rather than -a lu.xury. In Los Ange- 
les, electricity has taken its place as 
the unfailing .servant in the home. 
The home manager has come to use 
electrical energy for an almost un- 
limited number of purposes in doing 
her household duties.

er and light, placeff upon the Power

NOTED JURIST SPEAKS IN GLOWING TE|IMS OF 
TALENT DISPLAYED IN RECENT CHOIR CONTEST 
fifRANDS US TOO MODEST IN THE PREMISES 

ifi' ' We appreciate the encouraging remarks of Judge' Carlos 
Hardy anent the recent Choir Contest at Hollywood Bowl, 
that we cannot refrain^from reproducing his 16tter to this 
writer upon the subject. 

• Be it known that Judge l^ardy is a national character 
based upon his reputation a^nd demonstration as & humanita- 
rian, and we fail not to appreciate the weightand consideration 
given to any utterance which he might make upon any matter 
which has to do with public weal. The letter follows: — 

' "Chambers of The Suj^eripr Court ,Los Angeles, Calif. 
Carlos S. Hardv, Judge 

. Julv 19, 1926. 
"Editor, The Eagle:— 

"I have read with interest your report of the great 
Church Choir Contest at the Hollywood Bowl, on the eve- 
ning of July 12th. The report is splendid but it is too 
modest. 

"Mrs. Hardy and myself, with some highly capable 
friends, attended the contest and we recognized it as one 
of the outstanding musical events of the year. It was cer- 
tainly a unique affaiir, and stands alone in the community 
as a festival of religious music. 

"I try^never to miss an opportunity to hear a presenta- 
tion of Negro Music to which white people are invited,. and 
I regard this choir contest as one of the finest thingsl if not 
the very finest, presentment of music by Negroes that I 
have ever attended. 

"So I say that your report was too modest. It was a 
great civic event in which our entire citv mav take just 
pride. -n^tX. 

"I sincerely trust that the contest will become a recog^^ 
nized civic enterprise to be enjoyed by ail people. 
"Sincerely yours, 

"CARLOS S. HARDY.'"

POLITICAL SITUATION IN LOS ANGELES NOT UNLIKE 
VIEW POINT IN CHICAGO 

So aptly summed up and with such a similarity of situa- 
tions which obtain this very Tnihute along political lines in this 
city we are reproducing in full an editorial from the last issue 
of the Chicago "Bee". All that is lacking in the resume of 
cities refe^ed to is the city of Los Angeles and now if the edi- 
tor oi. the '"Bee" will just slip Los Angeles in everything will 
be just right. For be it knpWn at this yery minute the condi- 
tions as narratedJaelow fit the situation here precisely. 

"Newspapers And Poltticuins 

> I 

"We learn that a prominent financial magnate of Chi- 
cago has threatened to spend no more money on the south 
side. (For the sake of people out.side of Chicago, let us say 
that the south side of Chicago means the colored section j. 
The reason given for this decision was that the Negro lead- 
ers to whom the money has been given have usually failed 
to spend xthejnoney for the campaign. Without having the 
least bit of interest in the magnate referred to, we want to 
say that the decision is, on the whole, sensible and just. 

"Nor is this condition neculiar to Chicago. It is equal- 
ly true of New York and other cities. It is not limited to 
the Negro politicians either. It applies to the whites as 
.well. . " 

"Now, as every well informed person knows, a great 
number of Negro politicians and preachers simply fool 
white men out of lirge sums of money from year to year. 
They go in and get money which is seldom put into the 
campaign. Most, likely a few circulars and hand-bills are, 
gotten out a few days before, election and the rest ot the 
money pocketed. There are unquestionably certaain high- 
type ministers and public men, but most of those who fre- 
quent the political headquarters are primarily grafters. 
Only recently two prominent white oflflce-holCrers told us 
; how a Negro preacher of Chicago had pretended to sell his 
congregation. One of them said this Negro minister first 
sold hi»i the congregation. Then he sold the congregation 
to his ppponent When each opponent learned of the minis- 
; ter's action, both went to see the gentleman of the cloth. 
Whereupon the swallow-tailed grafter explained that he 

', I had adopted a basis of equity, because he gav eone-half of 
' the congregation to one and one-half to the either. , 

, I "While this crook was more subtle than many others ! 

' ! In explaining his action, he fairly w^U represents the group. ' 
j It is safe to say that not five cents of a dollar is spent on; thq 
campaign by most of these political grafters who are giv- 
en money for camp8ig:98 in the black belt. What should 
the political managers do and how should they do it? Here 
is a question which is^capable of an answer — a practical 
and valuable answer. 

"Frst, it is possible to reach the colored votats of 

Chicago. It may be done at a reasonable and honest rate. 

We state this without having interest in an^ cand'dat'~ '• 

poHtical party. There are two legitimate new.Vapers, 

only, in Chicago. They have circulations and intelligent di- 

(Fection. They are neither blackmail nor extortion sheets. 

I Together they reach the colored" leading clientele of the 

city. Np political party can purchaM IJaeir editorial de- 

partmenta, but those ; political parties can buy space for 

'presentation of their' side, just as they wftiild purchase 

space in onoe of the white dailies of Chicago. Outside of le ' 

gitimate.publicity, there is no occasion for spending any 

money except fQjr.haills, speakers who really speak, j}ost- 

age for tetters iietUKlV 9ent out, and precinct workers who 

' work under supertWc^n. 

"The precediiag^ facts go for tverybody and .for all 
parties. Whit* men ^ho have made huge business 3ucces» ' 
|l|0<iUi not be misled by a few scheming Negro peliticikiui 
iiaid unscrupulous preackers who do not reflect the s^nti- , 
ihent of the coannu^ii^. They^ should apply the same busi- 
ness analysis wUcn they Mopiy in commerce, finance and :

How She Arose From 
Obscurity to Stardom 

(Continued from last issue) 
Madam Cul-Te-Wan's early school 
days were happily spent in Louisville; 
l:er home town. 

As has been said, she showed si(fns 
of innate ability in singing and danc- 
ing. However, at this, period of jad- 
vancement, dancing was not looked 
upon as an art to be culitvated, hence 
at fir.=t the little uctres.s, whose iovi 
was brim full of enthusiasm for ithS 
thing she liked best was her own tu^* 
tor and gathered about her, her school" 
associates as a daily audience, who 
lauded her performances and were apt 
as well as, anxious pupils. 

But fortipnately tor MtHe Madam," 
her contact with her mother's frjend.s 
73p!?ned for- her an unexi)ected oppor- 
tunity for demonstrating her whole 
ability. She was often invited by the 
best of the town to sing -and dance 
at polite affair.';, and perhaps her 

I greatest inspiration as well as infor- 
mation came with her privilege oi' at- 

iteniling the shows that came and went 

I wekely. One time seeing a new liance 
and hearing the latest song hit was 

; enough for little Madam Sul-Te Wan 
as she was still fondly called. 

So rapidly did she grow in, favor 

that no longer were the school pals 

her (inly audience. The city became 

her stage witff it citizens hey patrons.

Big Game Hunt Is Res-^ 

ponsible for Lyke- 

Wyte 

Being of an inquisitive turn of 
mind; your reporter when interviewj- 
fng the DXT Laboratories for the air- 
ticles which appear on page one asked 
how they ever happened to discover 
bow to make the product Lyk-WKte. 
.And here is the story behind it, which 
goes to prove that lucky misJtakes still, 
happen. Modem rubber as we all 
know was the result of carelessness 
on the part of a man who, while ex- 
perimenting with rubber allowgd 
.some of it to boil over on the mot 
stove. 

LYK-WYTE has somewhat the 
same history.. Some three years ago 
a chemist was endeavoring to per- 
fect a positi¥&.*ure4°'' ?«='*'"*• ^^' 

ter a good many trials, he felt that 
he had finally found the correct way 
to make this cure, so he gave samples 
of it to various friends to try, asking 
that they let him know what the re- 
sults were. One of the first to use it 
Was a man who h^td but just returned 
from the tropics,' where for three 
vears heihad been after big game, ex- 
ploring Ad looking for a leKen(lar>' 
gold mine. A few weeks after start- 
ing to u.se his friends salve, he noted 
that his face on which- he had been 
applying the salve every night was 
much lighter thain the rest of his 
body, which of course had been deep- 
ly tanijed by the tropical sun. Inves- 
tigation by the chemist, who at once 
saw what a world-wide demand there 
would be for a real skin bleach, prov- 
ed that he was abl* to bleach the dark 
pigment in the skin. Months more of 
work were essential to bring it to a 
stage of pefection, but finally it was 
done. 

Since that time thousands have been 
using it, all with the same Invariable 
resuls. It positive bleaches the skin. 

If your Druggist cannot supply you 
.send one dollar to the DNT Labora- 
tories, 1616 East 9th street, Los An- 
geles, California, for a jar sufficient 
for a month's use. <

Dear Sir: 

In reply of your note of a few days 
ago, permit i^e to submit fhe follow- 
ing lor the ^fatisfaction of all parties 
concerned. ! Relative to. my po.sition of 
Deputy Sheriff of Los Angeles Coun- 
ty, which bostion I. have held for a 
period of twenty years, during four- ■ 
teenlyears'of which time I served as 
Turnkey. Thifi position necessitated 
being indoors during my entire work- 
ing shift, by reason of which my 
health was .so threatened I con.sidered 
resigning. 

About four year.> ago upon election 
and induction into office of Mr. Wra. 
L .Treager, who 'lecognized my con- 
dition and prciiDscd a change of work 
which would permit me to enjoy 
natures light and sunshine. The 
choice of work was left to my own ser 
lection in the same class. My lon.g 
and te?dious experience as a Turnkey 
had taught me the neces.sity of a 
reeular and trusted In.spector" of 
locksr walls and gratings. 

Up. to this time there was no one 
entrusted or charged with this grave 
re.sponsibility. I suggeste<l to my Su- 
perior the necessity of such a posi- 
ion as a distrinct dutyl The sugges- 
tion wars acfcepted by Mr. Traeger and 
I was immediately appointed to th* 
positioi of Jail Inspector. Not only 
did this carry with it a degree of pro- 
motion 'and an increase of salary, but 
it- expressecli a vote of confidence sec- 
ond only to that of Chief Jailor. This 
was the first promotion and increase 
in salary that I had received dtring 
my fourteen years of service. 

I can truthfully say that the posi- 
tion was created at my suggestion, 
and I was installed at my own request 
I am therefore more than satisfied 
with my station and further I enjoy 
the confidence and respect of the en- 
tire personnel, i The title of the posi- 
tion above mentioned '-is that of Jail 
Inspector. I therefore hope that this 
explanation will serve to set at rest 
any and all false rumors respecting 
my position. I wish also to empha- 
.size the fact that I am not at present, 
neither have^I ever been, employed 
in the capacity of Janitor at tihe L.

I«ct for those violating the law than 
tho.se bent on observing tire law so 
speaks traffic officer Kelly who directs , 
and keeps traffic in order at iHh and 
Central. "The traffic officer's job is 
at no time , an easy one. His very 
presence is obnoxious to many, yet 
he is simply placed at .street inter- 
sections to maice it possible for both 
pedestrians and motorists to reach 
their point of destination with least 
ijnconvenience. However conditions 
lire improving. Accidents and arrests 
for traffic violations are not so num- 
erous as a year or sO ago. Education 
is doing the trjfk. The traffic officer 
simply solicits co-operation in his ef- 
fort to perform his duty. Given this 
the public can rest assured that traf- 
fic violations will continue to decrease 
and a better relation built up between 
the-police department and the citizen."

Sunday, July 25th in three private 
cars loaded with camping parapher- 
malia, the Bachelor Girls left the city' 
of, Angels for Elsinore, that popular 
summer resort on tiieir second annual 
camping trip. Upon arrival, they im- 
miediately pitched their tent and pre- 
pared theipselves to partake of those 
things thaS: accompaay ideal camping. 
During th«ir weelf's stay, they par- 
ticipated in Everything that tended to 
make their trip enjoyable. Rising ev- 
ery motning with the' sun, a memorial 
day was always looked forward to. 

"rtie daily swim was aided greatly 
^jy the new and fancy bathing togs of 
the girls. , The old standby — hiking — 
proved as interesting to all as usual. 
Possible "she" Babe Ruths were found 
in the chib :inembers during the occa- 
sional biseball games that were play- 
ed. Probably the most interesting of 
all sports was that of rabbit hunting 
in Elsinore ; wild wcfods. This was 
quite noVel ' and new to most of the 
giris an<f— oh yes, they caught some 
rabbits— ei^ht to be exact! Dancing 
was indulged in both on the pavilion 
at the beach and at Coleman's Hotel. 
The cQoking was done in thfe open and 
each girl's cooking ability was tested 
by cooWng on the camp stove. 

Many compliments were given the 
club on tlfe neat appearance of the 
tent and 'other equipment. Much of 
the good time is attributed to the ex- 
cellent chaperons, Mrs. Edwards and 
.Mrs. Hoskins. Mrs. Beatty also ac- 
companied the girls. 

Sunday, August 1st found the 
girls "breaking camp."= With manf 
sore limbs, sunburns and other natur- 
al results of a real good time, ttey 
returned to L. A. All loudly pro- 
claimed that this, the second aiinual 
camping trip, was a boomilijt success 
in every way and although tl^ey were 
eagerly looking forward to tiext year s 
trip, they will always recall thic out- 
ing as being one of the most enjoy- 
able times of their lives.

my cakes' of Gonorrhoea in children 
amMig the white race and practicsM^ 
hone among the Black. All oil the 
cases mentioned above were in "white 
children. , ' ■? 

i THE CAUSE OF GONORRHEA • 

Hbw js Gonorrhoea contracted? In 
one of several ways the germ, which, 
is thp'cause, is transmitted. A person 
wilth gonoirhoea always has a disj; 
charge. In this discharge the germs 
causing the infection are fpund. If 
any particle of this discharge is left 
on towels, toilet seats or in bath 
tul>fe tiiese may be source of infection 
to o^ers. The most common ^urce 
of infection from gonorrlwea is sexu- 
al ijitercourse. There^ are many tases 
rfn record in which older men hayie in- 
fected small girls through rape be- 
cause of the absolutely false idea that 
interoourse with a virgin will cure 
gonorrhoea in men. 

HOW SCHQOL CHILDREN AI^ 
INFECTEEte 

There are two common sources of 
infection in school childr^. Bad hab- 
its of all kinds are prevalent among 
many school children. They do not 
mean to be sinful, but they are ignor- 
ant. No one has ever told them any- 
thing — they do not know. Parents 
should stay cUtse to their' baby girls 
»id boys. Do not wait until they are 
ruined— save them by telling them in 
time about the h^uty t^ shunning 
evil habits and the grave dangers of 
yielding to them. f '^ 

Next to venereal diseases from evil 

habits the toilet is probably thel most 

— mww a aeorta, o< hrfertioB ini.cbil- 

! dren. No child shpuld sit on a toilet 

neat in ^hool nor in any public place.

Woman's Day To Be Ob- 
served al First A. M. 
LChurdi 


Pouring into thtJ city of ihe world- 
famed Golden Gate, most of them on 
a special train of twenty coaches, 
came over 20,000 of our ^ce'.s moth- 
ers, wives and sisters to convene on 
matter.'i" most vital to the other 200,- 
000 colored women of their organiza- 
tion. By that same standard their 
convening was vital also not only to 
the whole ract? but to the nation itself. 
^T<Tt are we not an important integral 
unit of this same great nation ? This 
was the biennial convention of the 
National As.sociation of Colored Wo- 
men and the first convention ever 
held West of Denver. 

The meeting was called to order 
at 3:00f P. M. Sunday, Augu.st l.st in 
the Civic Auditorium ith the great 
head of Bethune-Cookman College, 
Mrs. Mary McLeod Bethune, holding 
the president's gavel. Arrangements 
were in charge of Mrs. Esther Jones 
Lee of Oaldand, first vice-president 
of the CaKfonda State Federation of 
Colored Women's Clubs. 

The public spirited womanhood and 
manhood of the Bay Region respond- 
ed 'to the invitation of the.se noble 
women and filled the vast arena of 
the auditorium to capacity. 

On the platform were seated about 
200 of our prominent personages. 
Senator Samtwi Shortridgc of Cali- 
fornia was the tweaker of the day and 
.gave a very inspiring talk. 

The presidents of the 41 Federa-

"EASY MONEY" GREATEST BACE 

PROPOGANDA PLAY EVER 

STAGED IK AMERICA 

(By: SPECIAL CONTRIBUTOR) 


J have seen "Easy Money," that 

drama of which all Los Afigeles seems 

.splendid to be talking, at the present -time; in 

one oMts rehearsals. . 


There are 'many things in the pliy^of loyal patriotic friends. The injus- 


that impre.ss one. The .size of the 
cast, the unusual combination of mu- 
sic, pantomine and spoken drama, and 
the beauty of the scenery., 

But the thing that impressed hie 
most, the tbinft that makes me ac- 
tually believe that the advent of this 
play wi|I mark the beginning of a 
real reformation in the treatment of 
our race in this city', is the race prop- 
oganda, which it contains. It shows 
so plainly that a white person seeing 
it Will "remember for all time,' some 
things: first, that what the hew Ne- 
gro wants in America is not charity, 
but justice, and the oppiortunity to 
WORK. That America is injuring 
herself, when she closes the door to 
henest opportunity to work in the face 
of 13,000,00 of her citltens, thus sub- 
jecting them to the teinptation to get 
"EASY MONEY" in ways that are 
dishonest. The drama shows tbe dan- 
ger to America of converting thro 
"unjiMt treatment, her Negro citizens 
into enemies of their country, instead 


y to vote and work for* ped over in the city and many are 
~ "■ ' still here, resting, seeing the sights 

and being royally entertained before 
beginning the long journey back East. 
Taken all together, it was 2 con- 
vention long to be remembered. 



tice and menace to democracy of mob 
violence is brought, out very plainly 
al.so. 

To have the.'-e themes so .sacred to 
our hearts, and yet so well known to 
us handled in such an altogether diff- 
erent way, as to hold each spectator 
..spell-bound from the opening entrance 
to the last act, nroves what this play 
really is. The production is different, 
novel, daring, yet it gives no offense. 
iThe mpst .sensitive member of either 
race could .see the play and go away 
thoughtful, but not offended. 

I am trulj^; thankful that the Prop- 
oganda Committee of the Federation 
of Improvement Associations is stag- 
ing this play, and if their work in the 
future is anything like their initial 
appearance, I believe that colored Los 
Angeles will see a new day in this 
city.

' The political battle is on. Senator •

the present governor and United

Shortridge no harm— the oposition of 
the senior Senator Johnson; his ad- 
vocacy of Judge Clarke seems to sa- 
vor too much of "hand picking." We

Cupervi.sor Welch seems to have

Congressman Julius Kahn and Judge 
Sylvan Lazarus. A casual survey 

I through the 4th District looks as 
though the Judge might win by a nod 

: from the widow, who is potting up &

the b'lWt of Supreme Justice, Thom-

cumbent, Judge Waste, who Is an ap-

A LETTER OF CONDOLENCE

Tulsa, Oklahoma, 

Augu.st 2nd,. 1926. 
MRS. LONDON DEVOE, 
Pa,sa<lena, California. 

Dear Madam, Friend, I'amily and 
Wife: Your telegram uncer date of 
Augu.st la.st, J!i2(; brings tome the de- 
plorable intelligence of t|»e tragical 

death of a. friend, cliristian, gentle- 
man, an American citizerij by , birth 
and standing, a proud faiher and a' 
devoted husband, which occurreil in 
your Pasadena home under gray and 
golden skies. 1 .say tragic death, be- 
cau:<e he died young, any death among 
the young and youthful is tragical. 

We art all horn tu die; iijf^f an in- 
<lividual journeys all the way from the 
cradle or from life's brilliant dawn 
to the twilight of its evening sunset 
and -thei shakes off this mortal coil, 
lies down, u.sing his burdens for a 
ipillow and sleeps time away, we 
should ijot grieve, for to the aged 
death is his Uist a;id best friend. Your 
husbar.'l was an unusual man, he was 
my friend, one that never changed, he 
never consorted with my enemies, af- 
ter i exhaostt'd my medical skill try- 
ing to effect a cure for hini, on find- 
ing that it wa:s but /uperhuman in 
this climatp, I advi.sed that' he ;igo 
West. HfeAid so. accumulated weailth 
and livied a'liappy, contenteiji life. His; 
life was a mo<lel one, he liV^d for his 
family and friends and died among 
those he loved and laboreiJ to make 
hai)py. 

You are now a widow^, made so by 
the only true .<livorce Judge. You 
have a name to protect, children to 
labor and live for and cliiUtren to 
live for yip; Words from a friend, 
or epithtirf^frora the wi.se cannot re- 
'place the flower which tlie cycle of 
time hath clipped from the j^jarden of 
your life. ^ 

With pathetic regards, 1 1 beg to 
subscribe rilyself as your frjend.

BLOCKING THE I3SUfi ' 

Something seems at all times to get out in front of, or in 
the way of, launching |i drive by the officials t« start right out 
and catch Mrs. McPherson's kidnappers, as evinced in the lat- 
est sortie of the grand jury, when one of its memberaas accused 
of stealing evidence. 


WHERE IS BORAH 

Where, oh, where is Senator Borah, who prates ab»ut the 
enforcement of the 18th Amendment and is hand in hand with 
the South which is brazenly violating the 15th Amendment? 


MORTALLY AFRAID ;^, 

^ Dempsey, the champion dodger, has no doubt had, many 
heart beats in his successful attempt to dodge the black panth- 
er, Harry Wills, of whom there is not the slightest dou6t he is 
mortallv afraid. 


YOU CAN BANK ON HIM ♦ ' 

Talk about judges, one must go a long way.s to find a jur- 
i.st who will equal the record of Judge Albert Lee Stephens for 
fairne.<(s and impartiality; and fbr all who stand for even-hand- 
ed ju.stice, Judge Stephens is the man. Our advice is to not on- 
ly vote but work for the election of Judge Stephens. \ 


NATIONAL FEDERATED CLUB WOMEN 

Los Angeles welcomes the presence in the city of return- 
ving delegates from the recent National meeting held in Oak- 
land, California. We feel that even their passing presence will 
be of immeasurable benefit and give both hope and inspiration 
not only to our women, but to the men as well. Indeed the 
women from all over the land made a lasting impression in 
their recent gathering, and the story of the great event will 
not be .soon forgotten.. Therefore on behalf of the people of 
this city we indeed e.xtend to them a sincere and royal welcome 


chasing these lands the city is paying the Inyd County ranchers . 
very good price*---about four and one tenth iimes the as^lessed 
valuation. This bond issup will also provide for increase^ stor- 
age and distribution facilities. ]i . 

These bonds do not in any way affect the taxp^e'r,|8inc& 
all interest and annual principal charges ^Jr^i paid entirely|frOm 
revenue derived from the sale of piower"and light. As stated 
before, there is no danger that the bureau cannot meet these > 
chaises for it has not only' met theni since February, 1922, 
but io addition to th!?t' h&s earned 'p. surplus of over ♦14,00w,000 
which has gone back into the system-in improvements. 

In fact, th eincreased facilities will enkfole us to increase 
our surplus earnings while at the same tjme to continue to 
serve the public at the remarkably low commercial and do- 
mestic rate which has-been enjoyed for many years. 

Therefore Ve must take cognizance of the fact that the 
bonds mean to the future of this great city and join in with the 
march of progress and support them. 

If reprisals must be made on any official there will be^ 
many opportunities further dowii the road, but m6.st as.suredly 
this is not the time nor place, when we would be doing the thing 
which means m;'ny .=teps backwarad in the marcli of progress 
for all the people. • . ,.■ , . ' . .

REAL PRODUCTION 

The turnout for the dedication of the ground upon which 
a furniture factory is to be ereeted, owned and controlled by 
members of our group, while good, was not by any means what 
it should have been. This brings us to the proposition so of- 
ten told that when real constructive situations are at hand the 
Negro can generally be foupd looking out the 'window. 

We are firm believers in production and right here with 
the Heflin Companv blading the trail to real endeaVor along this 
line of effort, it is a reflection should we fail to give to their ef- 
forts a fitting send-off, with both moral and financial support. 

The ground breaking of most any church edifice would 
prove indeed a great day in Zion and just why the launching 
of a real factory with its possibilities of fdrnishing work for 
thousands and to prove our boasted capacitVjto do. things, would 
fail to attract to the extent that ti should is an enigma to us. 

Factories! why, they are just the things that we stand in 
need of, if we ever expect to play our part in the mighty march 
of progress. IWe sincerely hope that when the ground is 
broken for this-most laudably effort that the people will have 
reaHsed the opportunity and give to the same the consideration 
which it Beally and truly deserves. 


GET AWAY FROM SMALL TOWN 'STUFF" 

"If I have pleased you, tell other; If I have not pleased you, 
tell me." This saying, while it has a very grave logical meanr 
ing has become a cheap cafe slogan, but we suggest that som6 
of our greater organizations put it into practical demon.stration. 

Such organizations as the National Association for the Ad- 
vancement of Colored People may be the medium through 
which Jim Crowism is eradicated. It may awaken the consci^ 
ence of the American nation to the extent that It will recognize 
the fact that "S\\ men are created equal" and it may open wide 
the door of industrial opportunity for the Negro youth, but 
what will it all amount to if the Negro has neither sympathy 
nor re.spect for one another? 

Take a casual survev of Los Angeles with its fifty or .sixtv 
thousand population;— What hav^we that stands for big busi- 
ness? — NOTHING. We have individuals in this community, 
of our group, who have intelligence, initiative and are willing 
to pay the price of hardships to succeed, but whenever he or 
she lifts their head with hope for the future, some sophisticated 
individual whose only excuse for beine popular re'»t'< on the 
fact that he or she has always and at all times set a high price 
on their own social standing, hurls a stone of malice destined 
to discourage or depreciate, and the re.st of the group either ap- 
plauds or sitgf supinely by. \ 

And so we say, again, and we firmly bejieve that the Ne- 
gro will never amount to much as a group, race or nation until 
the Black people of all shades and hues realize that it matters 
not how strewn with prejudice his path ; how charged with dis- 
crimination the future his only hope rests in the fact that he 
mo?t .stop lorig enough to have a sympathetic understanding 
with his own. ' 

>In civic, social, political or religious life, the Black man is di- 
vided — He does not .stand for^njrthing concrete — and the white 
roan knows it — he has no secreats that he himself respects. 
Must Lay Fp«indttticn For Future > 

If .the Negro hopes to fiB a place in the economic ww^ld he 
must first build from within, and in order to do this ho will haye 
to tear out of self the old belief of doubt, fear, hatred, and sli- 
peintition. Let his foundation for the future be built on lose 
— for all other ground is linking sand. <\

W(i^ on*? metnber of the committee 
who .>itoo<l first, last and always for 
the passage of the bill^nd tljat mem- 
ber was Senator Samuel M. Short- 
ridfce of California. When the Anti- 
Lynching bill was first referred to the- 
Senate Judiciary Committee, it num- 
ber of Republican hiembers'refused to 
handle it including Senator Borah, 
and they finally placed it on the 
shouldiers of Senator Shortridge who 
never faltered in his effort eitiher in 
the committee or on the Hoor of the 
Senate to "have the' bill passed. In 
that battle ."Senator Shortridge fought 
single-handed both in the commit't^e 
and on the floor of the Senate, losing 
many friends, and gain may eemies, 
but he stood up and fought for what 
he believed was right. 

I have known of your good w,o.rk in 
behalf of the colored people -ind I 
have always appreciated your effort 
in that direction and trust -that you 
wil continue the good work.

was in "the East a conference of Dem- 
ocratic leaders was held at Fresno, 
and that following, the refu.sal of; for- 
mer Senator James D. Phelan to be- 
come a candidate again the confer- 
ence unanimously requested .Dock- 
weiler to accept ^the party Jeadetship 
for the can^p^i^; This, explained 
Dockweiler, was the same group from 
which McAdoo accepted California's 
support in his attempt to secure the 
presidential nomination in 1924. 

The conference, continued Dock- 
weiler, had but' one idea and that was 
to serve the party. No attempt was 
made , to consider turning the D^mo- 
-:ratib party in the state over to any 
individual for use in 1928, for it was 
^considered that no candidate is suffi- 
ciently in the forefrfl(ht at this time 
to merit the consideijation of any po- 
litical bcwly.' The sole idea was to se- 
cure men~ieapable of carrying the par- 
ty standard in^the present campaign. 

Dockweiler, who is national com- 
mitteman 'for California, is a former 
State Nomtkl School Trustee, and

Baby Gans Shows Rapid 

Strides To Top Under 

New Manager 


Many strange little- things happen 
in the realm of the padded ring as any 
other garner things that have their 
effect on the future. So with Baby 
Joe touted as the next lightweight 
champion of the world. He has al- 
ways been a game, willing, littl^ fight- 
er, ready at any time to fight any one 
he was lucky enough to get on with, 
but his matches at. times seemed to 
be too few and far between. Then 
at best they iWere only semi-windups 
which meant lots of fighting and lit- 
tle money . One night,, hile Jimmy 
Kalty, a well known fight manager 
was at Wilmington with one of hk 
fighters, he learned that Gans wa.s 
not getting as many bouts as a fight- 
el- of his caliber deserved. So he 
wired that same night to JFeesno, and 
got a bout on for the well-pleased 
boy for the foUoing week. This was 
about six months past and was his 
first main bout. The crowd went wild 
over his classy style, and from then 
on his way was made. 

Soon after, his work was noticed by 
his present manager Mr. Lichenstein 
who locked him over and saw the 
championship possibilities in him and 
took pver full charge of his ring af- 
fairs. He is a fighter very easy to 
manage as he is a faithful trainer 
and needs only a chance to fight t< 
show hF.s stuff. Every fight since Mr, 
Lichenstein has had charge^ of _ hip) 
has been a big one, and he won th^m 
all mostly by knockouts, and riow 
comes hU last step toward the cham- 
pionsh'D. If he cops Callahan, which 
all authorities dope out he will, the

TILDEN-Wm^ IN 
POOR SHAPE TO 
RETAIN CROWNS 


New York, Aug. 8. — <!^rease paint 
and surgery may grive the ! United 
Ctates two new tennis jchampions this 
year. 

Just as William. T. Tilden's lofcg 
rule, of the national men's singles is 
threatened, so will Helen Wills have 
•difficulty in defending her title of 
women's singles champion at Forest 
Hills next week. '' 

What the stage did to Tilden's game 
that appendicitis operation may have 
done to that of Miss Wills. 

The Califomian was far from her 
old self at Seabright. -Her encour- 
aging showing at Eiast Hampton does 
not weigh in the balance when her 
difrieulties and eventual defeat at the 
New Jersey resort are considered. 

'IBig Bill" has until September 13 

before he must da£end his title, but 

the women's national singles cfiam- 

pionship starts August 16. • _^^^s«

Miss Wiils •a^^etief^os.t to Mi.«!s 
Elizabeth gyaa-fit Seabright, but had 
difficulties, unusual for her, in win- 
ning earlier matches. Obviously, .she 
is not at her best, and quite as obvi- 
ously. Miss Ryan and some of the eth- 
ers are going to force her to be at her 
best or surrender her chamjiionship.

Mrs. LeBlanc: the beys .say they will 
iitick to Mrs. LcBlanc becau.se she was

the first one to organize a bays band 
and train them, and give them a trip 
to Oakland; why. let us help the good

"They were of t^ opinion that the

At the opening of "My Magnolia"

gives a series of alternating white and

.Among the spectators of the players'

Hall three years ago was a cheering

igVERSY 

Chicago, 111., Aug. 9 (By A. N. P.) 
— The Chicago Tribune has taken the 
initiative this week in questioning a 
number of senators and senate aspir- 
ants relative to their attitude toward 
.ftuffrage of the Negro in states where 
h/is not i>ermitted to vote. The Tri- 
bune action is feft to have been in- 
spired bv a speech of Senator Borah 
in Atlanta, Ga., who characterized the 
effort to repehl the Volstead Act as 
an attempt to nullify the Eighteenth 
Amendment. The Tribune wants to 
discover how many senators there are 
who feel that there should be some 
.such act as the Volstead to enforce 
the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amertd- 
ments. ^ 

Negroes' throughout the country 
should be interested to know how their 
senators feel on this, matter. Accord- 
ing to the Tribune, Gov. John ^ J. 
Blaine, contesting for the seat now 
occupied bv Senator Lenroot from 
Wisconsin, said in response to the in- 
quiry, that congress should enact leg- 
islation that will compel southern 
states to carry out the intent of the 
Fourteenth and fifteenth Amend- 

"These two amendments should be 
enforced and observed," Gov. Blaine 
declared.. "Congress should carry out 
the duty to enforce these amendments 
by appropriate legislation, and such 
dutv, in my opinion, is mandatory.! 
shall vote for legislation to make 
these amendments effectove." * . 

Senator Lenroot was less definite. 
He wired in reply to a long-dsitance 
telephone nquiry: 

"Could not answer your question 
without knowing the law and the facts 
in a particular case.. The Fourteenth 
Amendment covers many subjects, 
ami, of course, any state law in <j6«t. 
flict with jt is invalid.'^ , . 

Subsequently, a piessage asking a 
further statement^was unanswered 
by Senator L^nrobr •,, 

Senatpf James A. Reed, ^iBs^ri 
Democrat in Aarga^^f- the Sepates 
slush fund investigation, expressed 
himself as being ajrainst any ipore 
force laws to prop up amendments W 
the constitution of the United St*es:

Douglass Natl Bank 

Shows Remarkabk 

Progress 


By: 
OSCAR C. BROWN 


Chicajfo, 111., Aug. 9. — From a re- 
cent survey of. The Ooufflass National 
Bank of Chicago it was foumi that 
the institution is ^iciently and con- 
servatively manai^d and has shown 
unprece<l€nted growth among the bus- 
iness enterprises owned ami operated 
by Colored people. 

LARGEST BANK OWNED BYCOL- 
,ORED PEOPLE 

— In, point of resources, the bank is 
naw the largest bank in the United 
States owned by colored people. .At 
tjM close of business, June 30, 1926, 
the resources were more thati .one 
million, nine hundred thousand dol- 
Ivrs. This represents an increase of 
over a million, two hundred &nd fifty 
thousand dollars since June 30, 1S83. 
_^The institution has a capital And 
surplus of $23.>,00e.0«. .Ten thousand 
dollars of this surplus was added out 
of earnings during the first six months 
of (his year. Tha two thousand shares 
of the capital stock of the bank ire 
owned by more than 2.50 stockholders, 
located in many sections of the coun- 
ty. These stockholders have already 
begun to receive dividends and it is 
evident that those who own the stock 
have an unusually good investment. 

FORTYFIVK THOUSAND DE- 

POSITOKS WITHIN FOUR 

YEARS 

More tlian 45.000 (lersdiis and insti- 
tutions have opened accounts in The 
Douglass National Bank within the 
past four years, .\mont; these depos- 
itors are inciuiled the c-ity of Chicago, 
Cooli County ( the county in which 
Chicago is located), and the State of 
Illinois. The Bank is also a deposi- 
tory 'or E'o.-tal Savings Kumis of the 
Federal (iovernment. National, Re- 
ligious ami Fraternal organizations 
located t-hrouirhout the country have 
found it of great advantage to carry 
■ lepo-its* in this Bank. In addition to 
the many tl.oasands of dejjositors v.-ho 
live in the ^^tale of Illinois, the insti- 
tution has, at the present time. 2,36!J 
nut-of-tuwn depositors, who reside in 
tv.-ent; -eight other .states of the 
Union. The Bahk is, therefore, doub- 
ly Natir.nay — National in that it was 
created umlcr an act «f Congres.- and 
-National in that an increasingly large 
number of persons and organizattons 
located throughout the nation areNaa- 
ing the Bank because of its safety, 
efficiency and convenience in hand- 
ling their ^ankintr business by mail. 

The Bank conducted a campaign for 
new business, from .May 17th to Jluy 
17th, n>2fi. During these two months 
more than forty-Sve hundre«t-ne^f •»- 
counts were opened. 

^ppro.ximately twenty-five million 
dollars have been handled through the 
bank within four years wnth absolute 
.safety and satisfaction. Most of this 
amount represented the funds of col- 
ored people. 

The support that the institution is 
getting is broffeht out by the facts 
that on June HO. 1923. the deijosits 
were $262,700,46; on June 30, 1924, 
they wer? $S6,I77.0<',; June 30, 1925. 
thev had reache<t over a million and 
on June 30. 1926. they had climbed to 
51,391.604.53. The business is grow- 
ing so rapidly that' the Directors will 
be compelled to take over more bank- 
ing space wirtiin the next few weeks. 

OFFERS COMPLETE RANKING 
SERVICE 

The in.-titution offers a complete 
general banking .-ervice. In addition 
to its Commercial and Savings De- 
partments, it maintains an efficient 
collection de))artment for both local 
and out-of-town items; and .sells trav- 
eler's checks negotiable throughout 
the civilizeil world. The safe depos- 
it vaults are mo<lem in every <letail. 
They are made of torch proof, drill 
proof, and explosion proof steel. The 
thickness of the vault door alone is 
eighteen inches and weighs eighteen 
tons. It is equipped with two combi- 
nation locks and four time locks. 

The bank is a member of the Fed- 
eral Retterve Sy.^tem and issues its 
own money known as National Bank 
Notes, bearing the signatures of it.^ 
President and Cashi»r,, both of whom 
are colored men. 

BA-NTi BUILDING IS THE PROP- 
ERTY OF THE BANK ■' 

The Douglass Natoinal Bank Build- 
ing is owned by the bank. The build- 
ing is a modern four-story reinforc- 
ed concrete and brick *-structure, oc- 
cupying one-half block at the comer

Revealing the rap^d'«it« at which 
Los Angties is centinutng; to ^raw, . 
through the fact that this city is in- | 
creasing its. consun){i^p|i of- doro^tic , 
watdr at the rate of raur and one- 
half billion gallons: d ^jre%F| Chief En- 
gineer William -Miwiolland ol the 
Municipal Water Biireau, in a state- 
ment to the Board of Water and Pow- 
er Commissioners, today emphasized 
the necessity of furthe*V-water devel- 
opment abd the construction of more 
extensive storage and- (distributing 
iacllities. ' ■ 

The use of domestic water in Los 
Angeles, Mr. . Mulholland pointed out, 
practically has doubled during the 
past five years. This amazing in- 
crease, it'' was shown, indicates that 
this city's ^opulatioQ also has been 
doubled during the j.-v.-c period of 
time. 

In order to keep pafee with this ever 
increasing demand fqr water service, 
it is necessary for tht Water Bureau, 
.Mjr. Mulholland stated, to develop its 
existing resources to itheir fullest ex- 
tent and provide mdi« extensive fa- 
cilities for water ftorjage and its dis- 
tribution to an ever growing number 
of consumers. 1 

It is to carry forward this work 
that proceeds from l(he $10,000,000 
water bond issue are to be used, it was 
explained. This bond! issue, together 
with an $11,000,000 power bond issue , 
to help I fiuance additional hydro-elec-; I 
trie power developmeJit and facilities I 
on the municipal power system, will 1 
be submitted to the vomers at the Aug- I 
ust 31st primary election. > ; 

Since both the Water Bureao and . 
the Power Bureau are self-sustSinlng 
municipal utilities, it Was pointed outr 
the voting of these tWo bond issues^ 
will in no way increase taxes. All 
charges on the water and power 
bonds ^-ill be paid oat of earnings of 
the Water and Power Bureaus. 
( Referring to the constantly increas- 
ing volume of domestic 'Water requir- 
ed in Los Angeles, MrJ Mulholland ex- 
plained that for the fikcal year which 
ended June 30, 192 1, the average <laily 
consumption of donie$tic water here 
amounted to apjjroximately 76,000,- 
000 gallons; While' for the fiscal year 
ended June 30 of thiSiVear, the aver- 
age daily consumption had iumpe<l to 
approximatel^v 140.0O0[0OO gallons. 

Water being used by Los Angeles 
people during the .siimwier months 
■show.s an even greatet increa.se, it 
was pointed out. During the summer 
months of the year 1^0-21 the aver- 
age daily consumption was 82,000,000 
gallons; while in the'^jinnimer months 
of the year 1925-26 t%,average daily 
use had mounted to j: approximately 


Careful BUrV«ys anil Caloilations, it 
was stated, reveajl that' the con«un>p-f 
tion of doinestic watetih Los Angeles 
amounts to 126 gsUoni per capita per 
day. Eaeh year for the past five I 
y«ars Los Anpreles people have be«n 
increasiiig their daily consiunption of 
domestic water li,006 fi^. SBUfiQS ov- 
er the daily consttviiiion «9 tha pre-- 
▼ibtts year. - This!i|>dicates-a popula- 
tion Increase of 100^000 a year, it -was 
stated. . , 

If he twelve ' million. 'gallon in^raaae 
in the daily demand for water whe^ 
applied on a yearly basis discloses th^t 
this city's domestic water require/ 
men^s are increasing at the rate n 
approximately four and one-half fair- 
lion gallons annually. 

To give some idei of the tremen- 
dous quantity of water required each 
day to meet the domestic water needs 
of Los Angeles, it was .pointed oat 
that if all the water used each day, 
during the present season, •Was col- 
lected in' Pershing: Sqatn, \t would 
cover that city blodrto 4 dapth of 134 
feet.

ers whfl had shown an unusual amount 
of untiring effort."! in malting Court

"THE CRUISE OF 
THE CHIAPAS" 



I.IBERMAN TKANSt>ORTATJON S. 

S. AND KX< KLSIOR MINING CO. 

BEGLNS REALIZATION OF 

THE DREAM OF AFRO- 

AMERICANS 

By: 

BARRON BROWN 

Hon. Oscar Hudson, Liberian Trans- 
portation :J. S. and Excelsior Mining 
Company last Sunday on board the 
CHIAPAS at San Pedro addressed a 
large ^atherintf of the company's 
friend.^ and stockholders. In his elo- 
quent manner he described the inaug- 
uration of a direct steamship Jine from 
Los An^reles port to Liberia as a mod- 
ern romance of busiress. 

It i^ a romance — a dream come true. 
It is none the Jess romantic becau.se 
busines.s men tike the place of knight.s 
errant, or because the gonfalons of 
chivalry have given way to the pen- 
nants of commerce. It is the ■begin- 
ning (if the realization of a dream 
long dreamed and hope,^ long deferred. 
In all the histroy of races and gov- 
ernments there is nothing more in- 
teresting or appealing than* the e.s- 
tabli.-^hnient and developinent of the 
government and country of Liberia. 
Consiiler— .More than a hundred years 
ago human slavery e.xisted in Amer- 
ica. .A race was heUI in hpysical bond- 
age. By great indusrty 'and frugal 
saving it was pos.sible for a slave to 
purcha.se his freedom; but with this 
attained he found him.^elf in possesii- 
ion of only a mockery of freedom be- 
cause it (lid not carry vifith it the 
right.-; of citizenship — nrtt eWen the 
right to express a voice in 'the gov- 
ernment under which he lived and 
reared his chddren. In order that 
these slaves, who bv one means or 
/another had gained their "freedom," 
might enjoy the rights of citizenship 
. and IKe a* free men in truth as well 
as in name, som« New England white 
philanthropists fostqred a movement 
_ to establi.-ih a free iand independent 
gov«mmeiit by and for the Negro race 
on the continent of Africa. In 1822 
the first "settlers" arrived on the 
We.-t Coa.^t of that continent «nd 
landed at a point known as Sierrr. 
Leone. They met with serious opposi- 
tion from the natives in this section 
and were compelled to move farther 
.south to a territory less hostile but 
none the less rich and inviting. Here 
where the coast of .Africa beging its 
great sweep to the Eastward was es- 
tablished the colony of Liberia. Af- 
ter the many dangerous and trying 
vici.-isitudes of pioneer life in a wild 
and un.settled region thea^heroic p(- 
gh^eers established in 1X47 under thje 
^^)onsorshlp of President James Moni- 
ro« the Kepublic of Lib*ria, framing 
their government after that of the 
United States and naming their capi- 
tol Monrovia. .A new flag was unfurl- 
ed in the gala.xy of nations; a new 
challenge to human .slavery and to 
despotism was issued to mankind; a 
new destiny was botn. 

After a century of struggle against 
the pre<Jator>- white powers of En- 
rope, Liberia stands today with most 
of her original territory intact, her 
integrity establi.shed, and her ideils 
unsullied. The thing that so strongly 
links the sentiment of the colored 
race all over the iworld with Liberia 
and which so strongly claims the feal- 
ty and affection of the race is the fact 
that on the whole continent where 
Ethiopia or>ce reigned supreme-^in 
the whole world, indeed— there is not 
another .spot of terrain that the Ne- 
gro can point to and say, "That is my 
horn! There is me spot on the face 
of the earth where I am sovereign!" 

Fate .seems to exercise an, irony in 
the destiny of nations as in, the des- 
tiny of individuals. Like the Osage 
Indians in our own cojuntry, the cof- 
onicts and founders of Liberia were 
compelled to go to a apot which wma 
I remote and whtch was considered 
' worthless by the rest of mankind — a 
-place no one else wanted. And like^ 
the land of the Osages, Liberia in re- 
cent years has proved to be a very 
treasure-house of natural riches; so 
rich, indeed, that now, when, it is too 
latj for predatory white rovemments 
to dare confiscation 6r the establish- 
ment of "protectorates" it is found 
that no territory on earth is more 
valuable to modem business or more 
neccessary to |he world's continued 
commercial development 

Professor Edward PiUman, a Li- 
berian educator of not who is now in 
this section as a .specU repfMcntative 
of the Monrov^an Chamber of Com-, 
merre, in speaking to a taut iBMting 
on the Chiapas ipst Sand»)r toM the 
•r'azinir- stotv cf th« devetopneat of 
this natnnd wclth. Liberia, woul <»e 
immensely woalthy if it pndBead no> 


no less than twenty-two indiginous 
trees and plants which produce this 
commodity so essential to the main- 
tenance' of human -lifej and commeire. 
Very little rubber is aS yet artificially 
cultivated; and yet rubfjer to the 
value of fSO.OOO.OO was taken out of 
the country in five months! With 
proper planting and cultivation this 
commodity alone will total millions 
of dollars. In addition to this im- 
mense potential wealth, Liberia has 
large forests of valuabre hard- woods 
which include mahogar^y in 'great 
(juantity. So plentiful and accessible 
is this precious wood that whole 
hou.ses are sometimes built of it. Cof- 
fee and palm oil of the finest quality 
can be produced with little expen.^e 
and in great t|uantities. Gold is plen- 
tiful in nugget form among the na- 
tives who u.se it for personal decora- 
tion. Precious stones are commonly 
found, and ivory in. quantity is eas- 
ily available.

HIS RECORD A GUARA- 
ANTEE 


\, A. Dehas Breakfast 

WMi Honorary Soror 

Mary M. Belhune 

By: 
FAY JACKSON 

With the charming simplicity of 
the truly great, Mary McCleod Beth- 
une, foremost woman of the Negro 
Race, sat as honored guest at break- 
fast Ifst Saturday morning given by 
her sok-ors of Delta Sigma Theta rsor- 
ority of which she is an honorary 
member. 

Twenty-four young college women 
representing both local chapters of 
the sorority together with visiting 
sorors of variovts eastern colleges a.s- 
sembled at Christian's Tavern to re- 
ceive this eminent woman • who so 
beautifully represents the finest of 
womanhood in the Negro race — in 
f«ci, a woman of whom any race may 
be justly proud. 
t fi short period of introductions and 
si^bdued converMttioits,-! then, all at 
once, unannounced and quite uncere-' 
monious'.y, Mary McCleod Bethune 
burst forth with a electrifying "Giris, 
Girls! I must speak, I cannot lose 
this precious time" ... It was the hu- 
man gey.ser breaking through re- 
leasing a volley of personal mag- 
netism umni.stable in its purpo^ and 
its aim. 

"It is such a rare treat," continued 
the speaker, "to meet young women 
such as you, fresh and idealLstic, full 
of the hopes and aspirations of youth, 
that I must tell you how very, very 
happy I am." 

The desire to .see at least 50,000 
young women co-operating with the 
National .Association of Colored Wo- 
men was expressed by soror Bethune. 
"For," she explained, "we need the 
young woman's viewpoint; we need 
her vigor and enthusiasm. Our group 
is judged largely by the masses of our 
people, not by the cultured college 
women but by thjsp in the humbler 
callings of life. Yours must not be 
an existence of exclusion and snob- 
bery but a life of active service, "Lift- 
ing as you climb." ;| 

In a plea for a stronger organiza- 
tion of Colored women, Mrs. Bethune 
said that the work of men is heralded 
and adored while that of women is 
given last place o^ entirely overlook- 
ed. "We must go to the front," cried 
the Black Joan, "and take our right- 
ful place; fight our battles and claim 
our victories !" 

Thus was Mary McCleod Bethune: 
a woman with a purpose; an artery of 
life, pulsating with energy; and in- 
deed, a woman of women consecrated 
to the noblest aim in life: Service. 

Indeed it was a beautiftil hour and 
Delta Sigma Theta is extremely proud 
to have been hostess to its honroary 
soror. 

Sharing honors with Mrs. Bethune 
was her secretary, Mrs. Taylor, her- 
self a woman . of exceeding keen 
judgment who said in a personal in- 
terview With the writer, "To me, the 
problems of the New Negro People 
are two-fold— Economic and Palitic. 
We are as yet a people of only super- 
ficial crust without the fundamental 
subatnace necessary to a sound raee- 
building. We have taken over the 
finer points of the white man's civ- 
ilization and overlooked the funda- 
mental ones but until we include in 
our program of Upbuilding self-reli- 
ance and resourcefulness, until we 
are able to hctck up our progress with 
the sound and practical things, which 
in America spells economic wealth,. we 
shall forever remain a dependent, iini- 
tatinr: people. Our political strength 
is, of course, the other important 
means of tieing up our growth and 
power.> Stand back of the men and 
women, black or white who have our 
interests at heart, regardless of party 
affiUations ... see that our repreaen- 
twtives are fostering ^he best ana 
cWnest <clea)s. Stand i>»ik of tiiem 
with your vote and stand as a Unit!"

less deahts among children being es- 
pecially evident in the report lately 
compiled by the -public safety de- 
.partment of the Automobile -Club of 
Southern California. 

In the face of increased auto and 
pedestrian traffic, fatalities from mo- 
tor vehicle accidents in the dty drop- 
ped to- twelve for July from the seven- 
>teen of the same pionth of last year,, 
following the June reduction of fif- 
teen death this year from the total of 
twenty-seven of 1925. 

Although mnnin^ or playing in the 
street was the leadmg eanse of motof 
fatalities .during tiia twO months last 
year, no. deaths have occurred under 
this eaute during June and July, 
1926. July had three last year, and 
June had five on its score. Only sev- 
en fatalities under this cause are re- 
corded for the year to date, as against 
fifteen for the same period of 19^. 
This is considered a valuable compli- 
ment to the safety wojrk of the Auto- 
mobile Club of Southern CaXxttSpnti in 
the local'sehools, and especialljt to its 
scheme of^'playground super4rii4ui by

citing the fact that she) owed her high- 
: er education and training for her life- 
: work to. the generosity of a white 
I lady school teacher of- Colorado, held 
the vast audience ^e|I-bound. 

The effect of the goyemor's ^>eech 
was immediately evident followin'g

levee hundre<is of prdininent people 
including leaders of th^ race, crowded 
about the Governor anc Mrs. Itichard-

election. 


There has be n' holdi.ig forth at 
the Whit« Sox'!iall Park since last 
Saturday, what was heralded as an 
Exposition, whic i was to depict Oie 
progress of the t ice along all the va- 
rious lines of enfi eavor. ' 
. One Rev.'L. 11. Brown, to all in- 
tent and purpos^ is the head of this 
so-called proposition. In fact he ad- 
mits it. 

■ We must say that along the adver- 
tised lines it was a misnomer from 
the very beginning. If it had been 
named an affair . to demonstrate 
gambling for ham^ and bacon, th> 
Charleston, a carnival supreme; or 
catch penny for Candidates for the 
approaching primaries; it would have 
cpme nearer telling' Just what it was. 
The sorry spectacle of collecting 
10 cents per head to enter a gate, to 
see nothing excepting a carnival, op- 
erated hy professional cartiival men, 
was the kight. Only one to^g spot, 
in an out of the way place, was ap 
art exhibit conducted by itice art- 
ists. 

After viewing this spectacle At is 
self evident that the race has' tieen 
exploited to the utmost, it has been 
outraged and raped by arch 'conspira- 
tors. It has been humbugged and its 
standing has ben challenged.- , 

In the first place the records at the , 
city hall show that the license out 
there was granted to the Old Folks 
Home. We want the officials of this 
Home to cbme formard and answer 
as to the part they played if any, in 
this nefarious affair. 
, They advertised Prof. Carver and 
other notables would be present, and 
not one appeared, they swooped down 
on the city Hall, enveigled-the City 
Council to decorate the streets for 
just aboSt as Qiiwoitliy and leas n^ri- ^ 
tr>rimig aj iMayoaitiaB a« it was i>o.s- 
sibk to conceive. 

It was rather punk and smelled to 
the highest heavens. Politicians were 
manhandled, thugged and despoiled. 
It was indeed the raggetliest ragged 
affair ever pulled off,.on an unsus- 
pecting public 

They could not advertise enough 
in these columns to still our tongue 
upon the injury ^rpetuated upon a 
race by the erroneous impression 
made upon the same wherein an expo- 
sition is alleged and not a semblance 
of the representation at hand.

We say to the preacher, he j must

COMMENTS' 


w. 


By: 
J. WHEATON 


The sudden death of Thomas J. 
Lennon, Associate Justice of the State 
Supreme Court and candidate for the 
Chief Justiceship of that tribunal, 
gives an almost certainty to tile se- 
lection of Chief Justice Waste at the 
coming primary. We say "almost," 
because there are certain conditions 
under which a contest can be made, 
even after the primaries. Though too 
late to file applications, citizens aan 
write in the name of candidates, as 
Independents and qualify for the elec- 
tion in November. The death of Jus- , 
tice Lennon makes two vacancies to 
be filled on the bench. Why not dtis- 
ens write in the names of E. Burton 
Ceruti of Los Angeles and Judge Wal- 
ter Perry Johnson of San Francisco 
for Associate Justice ?

The fight for the norainatidn of the 
United States senatorship in Califor- 
nia is not so much a matter -of th*-'* 
Tariff issue or the World Court em- 
broiglio as it is for the control of the 
delegation which will be selected from , 
California to the Republican Conven- 
tion which nominates the president in 
102S. The presidential bee busses in 
some bonnets until the hive decays. 
Once it is set buzzing it will sting 
everything in its' path to its ultimate 
goal— the White House. While Sen- 
ator Shortridge may not have pleaded 


attain a higher g^oal that will bring "-'' ^t all times by the stand- that he 
together and cement an interest 
among the churches and insiit that 
such an organization can build only 
upon that foundation — ^whose biratch- 
word is good fellowship at a nominal 
rate. One of the many features so- 
licited by this organization il the 
"Pleasant Sunday" that will be 
Idunched on the Second Sund/ly in 
Sfeptember. Watclf these columns for 
further announcement, or call iBEac

prizes awarded to the winners Zf the 
high scores by the Wh'st Tournament

silver buffet service, consisting! of a 
meat tray and compartment vegetable 
disJi was presented to Miss Fern Cald- 
well, winner of the grand prize for 
ladies. Mrs. L. L. French was pre- 
sented a handsome glass and Isilver 
water set for the 2nd grand prize. 
The n»n's grand prize was capered 
by Mr. D. B. Floyd, who was rejoiced 
with a handsome sterling silver Icock- 
tail shaker and set. Mr. Duplesis as 
winner of the second grand priz^»was 
given a tray of handsome silver smok- 
ing accessories. Dr. Mitchell, popu- 
lar dentin, was consoled with a beau- 
tiful English tea service for the 
grand booby. \ 1 

[■ Appropriate speeches of appl-ecia- 
tion were' made by ,the winners, but 
Dr. Mitchell's oratorical gem was in- 
deed a- masterpiece. ^ j 

The prizes for the first night at the 
.<iecond .semester were awarded at< fol- 
lows: To Miss Alvina Caldwell, an 
amber boudoir dock; to Miss IVfiller, 
two beautiful vases; to Mr. A. W. 
Hogue, a walrus billfold; and t<i Mr. 
D. B. Floyd, a smoking set. 1 The 
second semester promises to be even 
more interesting and better attend-

The National Bar Association com- 
posed of the leading Negro lawyers of 
the United States met recently in the 
city of Chicago. There are so many 
vital questions which, as a Race, ef-

have no doubt that ''Jim Crow" and, 
his associate relatives of Discrimina- 
tion were dealt with from a leg;al 
standpoint ^nd various means discuss- 
ed and formulated! for their abate- 
ment. Special Assistant to the At- 
torney General, WiBiam C. Matthews,

service in San Francisco, was one of 
the principal speakers on the pro-

We are in receipt of a survey of the 
farming activities of Negroes in Cali- 
■fomia. \ It was sent to us by our old 
corworker, Charles Hall, of the Cen- 
sus Bureau. While the result of that 
survey is very flattering, there is 
considerable room for further 'im- 
provement. Plenty of land and op- 
portunity to purchase it. We still are 
preaching the doctrine of production 
as the means of solving a vital prob- 
lem.

There is a party of Japanese stu- 
dents from the grammar grades and 
the universities visiting here, San 
Francisco. In a recent conversation 
one of them informed this writer that 
California fruit was being shipped and 
despite the high cost, was receivii^ 
favor over the fruit grown in the Ori- 
ent. We have claimed at all times 
that the opportunities in this state for 
the intelligent farmer was greatest of > 
any in the world. It has been our aim 
to divert the trend city-ward and di- 
rect it where it might become indc- 
Dendeht producters. PoUtics and re- 
ligion hare not aided the effort but 
we are not discouraged.

Tile Negro Exposition 

The .season's Carnival at the White 
So.\ Ball Park is a succes.s beyond 
I question. Tiie promoters are worthy 
of commendation, but the affair bears 
no resemblance to a Negro' Industrial 
E.xposition in which the exhibits of 
-Negro enterprises and industries are 
on display. 

The Negroes of Los Angeles ha^e 
no part in this supposed exposition 
nor does this stunt represent the Ne- 
gro industrial progress in . the.«e 
years. , 

The term "Negro E.\p6sition" is 
niisleading and a slap jn the face to 
the progressive -i^egroes in this city, 
bbt hjs 'served the purpose of a fa^v 
political pie hunters to enrieh thefir 
morally distorted st6machs at t^e 
expense of twenty thousand Negroes 
who will never stoop to a thing 6o> 
low. We wish it lib \fg generally known 
that this is NOT A KB^ItO EXPO- 
SITION, but a Carnival in the B^\ 
Street Style.

1 Hr. POWER BONDS ' 

We most heartly join in with all the forces which mean 
P o?ress foF the bailiwick in which we reside. It not only dem- 
.instiates ciyic pride, but enhances the value of the home and 
makes the burden of living easier. Th eimmense net saving of 
$500,000.00 annually to tax payers is the answer as to our 
position on this particular bond isj.ue. The city must keep pace 
along' business lines just the same as an individual in business 
if it is to gaifi the maximum results. The greater results 
which the city attains f dr water and power the greater saving 
accrues t<f the consumer of these commodities. As we under- 
stand it the present bond issue will add two units to power 
plant No. 1, which will produce 28,0b0 horse' power. This will 
be only a part of the benefit as a result of buying the lands in 
Owens' Valley. This horse power will help in reducing other 
consumer's costs to a minimum. 

• we must at all times safe guard our oppor- 
tunity to keep up to the highest efficiency our present city 
owned proposition which means the very heart and core of our 
pre?ent advanced standing, and in this situation give to the 
power bonds our unstinted support. 

One thing you must be sure of, do not fall out with any- 
body about anybody's politics.

orable S. M. Shortridgfe? It is unreasonable to suppose there 
would be EVEN ON^ who ^ould do so, unless it would be for 
petty pelf or filthy lucre. 

Senator Shortridge is nov. and always has been a real 
humanitarian and one who has, with sincere devotion at all 
times, championed the cause of the down trodden without <re- 
gard toi race, color, or pre\'iou3 condition of servitiide. Es- 
pecially true has this been the attitude of Senator Shortridge 
toward the colored citizens of California and later bf the Na- 
tion. - 

His deed in championing the Dyer Anti-Lynching bill on 
the floor of the United States Senate was but in keeping with 
his stand for fair pl^y for all peoples Suring his entire career. 
His stand for our grotip has been more outstanding, for the 
simple reason that they have stood in greater need of his ser- 
vice. In other words they have been more oppressed than any 
other class. 

In the face of these circumstances, if there are any of our 
group who would fail to rally to the cause of the Senator's 
success, they can be classed as nothing less than ingrates. 

We want to say that it is imperative for all of us to rise up 
to Ihe occasion and do our utmost in the present situation, by 
voting for the Senator and getting out every possible vote to 
help re-elect, not one whom we have heard to be a friend to all 
the people, but one whorr. we know is that friend. 

Aside from this ang;e of the situation. Senator Shortridge 
has in his first term in the Senate, become one of the strong' 
spokes in the wheels of the Government, and is recognized for 
his ability and accomplishments. He is a high credit to Califor- 
nia and'the nation. California is con^Dlimented indeed at the op- 
portunity to return him to th* Senate for another term.

Much is being said about Mrs. Be- 
thune's praising Governor Richard- 
son for giving such a welcome re- 
ception to the club women, and there- 
by endorsing Governor Richardson 
for re-election. It takes a weak or bi- 
ased mind to .stretch what Mrs. Be- 
thune .said as an endorsement of the 
Governor. I took it as a high-class 
criticism of the Governor and his ad- 
ministration. Have you ever been pub- 
licly praise<l and given credit for 
doing something that you. had not 
been man enough to do? That was 
the situation that the Chief Execu- 
tive found himself in. 

First. No great honor can be giv- 
en our Governor for the reception 
accorded our ladies. Mrs's Bet^unie 
told how the people of Salt Lake City 
had sent a special committee to meet 
jthe train and held a special concert 
in' Monttan Temple for delegates. She 
also told of how the Chamber of Com- 
merce of Colorado took the whole del- 
egation sight-seeing in that city. Then 
the California welcome that sonA 
would make' political capital of wais 
only following the example set by 
other states through which the dele- 
gation passed. 

Mrs. Bethune praised the Governor 
for being big enough to see no col<w 
when making his appointments for 
office and told him that it took a big 
man to select his aid with regards to 
the color 'of his skin, and she also 
pleaded that other Governors would 
follow his example and give the col- 
ored man a chance and that all we 
wanted w<^ our equal chance with 
other citisbns, and no special favors. 

How that could be taken as an en- 
dorsement wh«n none of the condi- 
tions iA the'speetih had' beeii met I 
fail iio see. . y 

Praise him for being big enough 
to 'make his appointments without re- 
gards to color, when he had failed in 
his whole administration to- appoint 
a colored man to a single position. 
We pleaded for a judge and united in 
requesting the appointment of Mr. 
Ceru*i, but the big man appointed 
fifty-seven, without touching us. She 
praised him for giving us a chance, 
when he knew that he had not done 
that. She praised him for seeing nt» 
color when that is all he saw. She 
thanked him ffig. the hope he held out 
when the only hope he showed us was 
a stronger national guard that would 
protect us during riots. Mrs. Bethune 
praised him for what he should have 
done. He failed to measure up to her 
rule, and he knows it. Let us help to 
retire him to private lifq? In so do- 
ing we will make the chance Mrs. 
B. prayed for.

gaining momentum. They point to 
the fact that his record on the City 
Council and as a civic leader especial- 
ly qualify him for the office of supei^ 
visor.' ,1-' ,j V "^ " . 

At a meeting of' the] j West Holly- 
iHrod Republican Club, jthe following 
resolution was unanimously adopted 
endorsing Mr. Barnes: — 

"It is most important to the citiz- 
ens /ind taxpayers of tht^ District to 
have a representative as' Supervisor 
in whom we can place the fullest con- 
fidence as to honesty, integrity and 
ability. Therefore, be it Resolved, 
that this strgaoi^ktion does hereby 
endorse the- eandiUacy of A. J. Barnes 
for Supervisor, and' be it further re- 
solved that.<jre,do everything within 
our power t^ )idp,in electing Mr. 
Barnes." y ,' . 

The Barnes. sentiment on th'e'East 
Side of the jpnSrict is growing by 
leap^ and iMJmidal and a strong sup- 
port is prom^^4^ for his success.

The Main Street Club of "Fight or

fights, not brotherly "team acts." And 
they really get their money's worth 
and show their appreciation by always 
filjing the house to the roof.

Mr 


Declaring that Los Angeles' rapid 
transformation from a small tourist 
city to th» metropolis of the West has 
been made possible by this City's con- 
stant vigilance in maintaining ade- 
quate water and power supplies, H. 
A. Van Norman, assistant chief en- 
gineer of the Municipal Water Bu- 
reau, yesterday urged the necessity of 
further development along this line 
as the only possible guarantee of con- 
tinuing growth and prosperity. 

Mr. Van Norman was in charge of 
the construction of important sections 
of the Owens River Aduequct and has 
been William Mulholland's first as- 
sistant in the operation and expansion 
of Los Angeles municipal water sys- 
tem for many years. He stated yes- 
terday that the proposed water and 
power bonds to be submitted to the 
people at the August 31.st ~ '

A. ij. Reece of the A. L. Johns- ) election are urgently required if nec- 


ton. Inc., agents of Hudson and _Es- 
sex Motor Car Co., says: 

"I cannot see * how& anyone who 
knows California, the average rain- 
fall, and its natural resources, can 
, think of voting other than for the 
Water and Power Bontis; as each of 
them are indispensible to our contin- 
ued growth and industrial expansion. 
"They are the very backbone of not only 
ly Los Angeles, but. all Southern Cali- 
fornia. I would consider it a crime 
of omission if I should fail to Wi|rk 
and vote "yes" on the Power Bonds. 
Let me advise all of you who desire 
continuous prosperity and ' expansjtfb 
to vote "yes^' on the Power Bonds at 
the Primaries, Augu.st 31st. 

(Signed) A. G. REECE. 


Mr. Noah D. Thompson, Industrial 
Secretary *f the Urban League and 
well-known member of Pre.ss and So- 
ciety circles, was speaker of the even- 
ing at the big Barbers' Association 
Banquet, at the Egyptian Tea Room, 
Tuesday night, August 17th. An en- 
joyable time was had by alL ' 


essary water and power development 
work is to be carried forward. 

"Los Angeles has a habit of out; 
growing its water and power supplies 
and distributing facilities as rapidly 
as they are maue available," said Mr. 
Van Norman. "This, of course, is 
proof of our city's amazing develop- 
ment. It also places upon the .Munici- 
pal Water and Power Bureaus the ex- 
traordinary task of keeping pace with 
these demands. 

"It is obvious that the only practical 
and business-like method if financing 
these permanent extensions andT de- 
velopments i* through the isiuatlce 
of bonds, to be retired fromWatfer and 
Power Bureau earnings over a period 
of year.s. 

"All interest and annual principal 
charges on these bonds are paid out 
of the revenues of the Water and Pow- 
er Bureaus. For this reason, the vot- 
ing of additional iwater and power 
bonds, as required, does not cost the 
taxpayers a single dollar. 

"Of the $10^)00,00 water bond is- 
sue, approximately $6,000,000 are re- 
quired to carry through the city's wat- 
er bearing land purchases in Owens

To help finance additional re.ser- 
voir storage and water distributing 
trunk lines within the city itself, bond 
funds to the amount of $4,000,000 will 
be required liuring the next two years. 

"As the "demand for greater quan- 
tities of water in Los Angeles are met 
by bringing down increasing vohimes 
of water thrAigh the Aqueduct, the 
Municipal Power Bureau is presented 
with the opportunity to increase its 
production of hydro-electric power in 
generating plants along the water 
line. 

"A portion of the $11,000,000 pow- 
er bond issue is required to install "ad- 
ditional generating facilities at Pew- 
er'Plant No. j 1. Installation of these 
units will niake it possible for thje 
Bureau to ph)duce 28,000 horsepow- 
er of electric energy in'addition to the 
quantity which can now be generated 
in its Aqueduct plants. The re- 
mainder of the bond issue is needed to 
help finance, urgently needed expan-i 
sions to its facilities for the handltog 
of ai^ eyer increasing volume of elec- 
tricity on its lines." /

Attorney Tyler has been a resident 
of the 73rd District for 15 years, dur- 
ing this time he has taken an active 
part in politics, but never before 
sought public office, elective or ap- 
pointive. The issues are too vital at, 
this time in the opinion of Attorney 
Tyler to be overlooked for any reas- 
on of private business. The public 
jjow has an interest that must be serv- 
'e(\ for the public's good. 

DIVORCE REFORM 

Attorney Tyler urges in his plat- 
form, a very important change in our 
present divorce laws. The evil he 
will seek to correct by proper legisla- 
tion, relates to what is called the "en- 
try" of the final decree. Attorney Ty- 
ler points out that when a divorce is 
granted by the judge, a decree must 
be filed. This decree is called an In- 
terlocutory Decree, which is not' a di- 
vorce at all, for in fact not until one 
year expires can the final decree, or 
decree of divorce be "entered." This 
is never done unless the attorney for 
divorced , wife, or husband files such a 
decree and presents it to the Court for 
signature (and finally) "entry" in the 
Judgment Book. In thousands of 
ca.ses, neither i)arty requests that this 
be don«. A divorced person moves 
away, 6r waits one year and re-mar- 
ries without further ado, and thinks 
himself — or (herself) — divorced. This 
entangles property rights and in fact 
is bigamy "in many cases. Under the 
reform urged by Attorney Tyler, one 
year after the First Decree is entered, 
the Decree becomes final by operation 
of law, and neither divorced party has 
^ny f uriher- concern, nor could any 
mistake be made by a re-marriage by 
either., Attorney Tyler says toou's- 
ands of married couples how living 
together have had to re-marry because 
of the mistake fce points but, and 
many, many thousands are not, now 
legally married, because no Final De- 
cree hafe ever bee entered in the mat- 
ter of their fftrmer divorce. All of 
these difficulties would be overcome 
by his proposed reform. 

.. WATER - 

In the 73rd Assembly Distinct, there 
are of course some people of consid- 
erable wealth, though no portion of it 
is, technically spealdng, a millionaire 
colony, at this time, although at one 
time many rich people lived oh what is 
now the Western edge of the District, 
The rank and file of the voters in the 
73rd Assembly District are. vitally 
concerned in . those great utilitie^s, 
which ' are in fact, living necessities, 
such as w^ter, electric power and gas,, 
which can be, and are being) distrilut- 
ed under the wonderful program^ of 
municipal ownership, now afforded 
the people of the city of Los Angeles. 

The base rate for water per' one' 
thous^d cubic feet in San Francisco 
(privjitely owned company) is $28.00, 
while in Los Angeles, the rate is only 
$16.00. In sQtae cities, the rate is as 
high as $35.00 per one thousand cubic 
feet, while the average for 183 cities 
w^ $17.89, tiius projring that Los An- 
geles is being afforded a very low 
water rate, free of any charge for 
meter service, such as San F^ndsco 
must pay.: Everyone kno^vs that the 
low electric power rate has been the 
back-bone of our manufacturing in- 
dustries and business. For these rea- 
sons, public ownership of water, elec-. 
trie piower and gas, should never be 
surrendered, by failure to pass the 
necessary enabling ads, so that the 
water from the Boulder Dam, when 
once, we get. it, can be fnade available 
as well as the hydro-electric pQwer de- 
veloped therefrom, for.- ovf grMit 
Southern C!alifomia: i'y 

The- state should be re-apportioned, 
and all the laws should be Enforced. 
The difficulty with too many org^- 
izations, and groups of citizens, weU' 
intentioned today, is that tbsy center 
their whble acfiiviiy upon a.piirticalar 
lav, or vfUm « poititnqt of «ne etattt'

' I beg leave through your eolikmns 
to appeal to the colored electorate of 
the great State of California to return 
to the Senate the distinguished stkites- 
man. Senator Samuel Shortridge. He 
is needed here, not only for'the color- 
ed people at the capital, but for all of 
us in the nation, for all of <)ur| dis- 
criminations here and our fights 
against them' are national in their, 
character and influence. 

As President of the Washirlgton 
Branch of the National Association foi 
the Advancement of Colored People, 
and a member of its National Durec- 
torate, I ara forc^ into continued con- 
tacts with the men and women who, 
run this nation. There are so many 
wrongs for which we get no relief, 
and so many new hostile measures: 
proposed by those ihigh in authority, 
Ihat this organization must wage re- 
lentless conflict, SO; I have constant 
opportunity to tak^'the measure of 
our. statesmen. Senator Shortridge is 
one magnificent figure that has never 
failed us^ and since there ar« so few. 
here jwho worry 'fn^ich over the mis- 
fortune of our disadvantaged gnioup, 
we ciinnot i(p«lfeMiL ' •' ™' 

We have sOgregalted schools ne|», 
hence, "discriminatioin in racial allot- 
ments. "The "Senate^ has always stood 
for equity in. the appropriations^ so 
that our schools are' far better e<iuip- 
ped than they would be were there^not 
some broad-minded statesmen m Con- 
'IHess to hee4iaur pleas. ITi the case, 
of Howard Ufdvetrsii.y he' has respond- 
ed with like interest and sense of 
justice, so that Hoifard today is re- 
ceiving mote than twice the aid [she 
teceived some years ago. . I heard him. 
speak l)efore the 4^mity Congress 
here ^several years. tjgo, before an 1 au- 
dience largely white 
of the country, and 
4is noble eloquence

the case of all of tihe many hoitite 
bills introduced by ofir industrwuS 
enemiei from the S>uth h$ is of'irir 
valuable aid to us. Hiere were fb»r 
vicious bills in the Senate at one time 
this wmter, and every one of them 
was smothered. . " • 

But, of all of has services his claim 
to fame and all men's support , will 
rest Upon his brilliant, courageous, 
and altruistic fight for the Anti- 
Lynching Bill. In this long and bit- 
ter struggle he looiiied a magnificent 
solitary Radiator holding his own 
against the solid' so^Ut, and a Bym}>a<-, 
thetic, or at least anjapatheti^, Noi^. 
He made the lengtnly, learned, And 
humane report on tne bill which read 
like the documents k>f the giants of 
the great Reconstruction da]^. He 
forced it upon the Sena|l, iwd suc- 
cessfully withstood thb combined Are

CANCER IN WOM^N OF 46 YEARS 

Nothing teaches like experience. 
"Doctor, I know it's too late now. I 
know I will never get well, I'm just 
dying by degrrees. And nothing xan 
save roe. When you tried to get me 
to have 'the tuinor removed last' year, 
I thought I would (ret around it a^d 
just 'kept puttinK it off. Now I know 
it's too late!" I just left the bedaide 
of one of the finest women in Los An- 
geles, who wept out those sad words. 
A year ago I plead with this woman 
as I should havQ plead with my own 
sister to 'have a laboratory examina- 
tion and the operation if necesary to 
remove the awful enemy which had in- 
vaded her body. But she was human. 
She Ijated the word "operation," she 
"tried to get around it," she waited! 
Today she would have not only one 
operation but one hundred operations 
— if any surgeon in the world could 
hold out any hope to her. But as she 
her.self says, unless God performs a 
miracle for her it is "too late." 

Cancer taken in time' is one of the 
easiest conditions in the world to 
cure-^because it is only a small, local 
lesion. Let it go too long and no 
power under heaven can arrest it be- 
cause the disease has made its way 
thrrough the blod or lynmph stream 
into all parts of the body. And a sur- 
geon would have to take the whole 
body apart in order to get all part of 
the cancer. This of cour.se is a phys- 
ical impossibility. It is because it is 
natural for cancers to form little 
metestatic or secondary growths all I 
throughout 'the entire body. After' 
they reach a certain period in their 
development^hat I, with every oth- 
tCT iloctorw ho has the well-being of 
■humanity at heart, urge every woman 
'with any kind of tumor to be examin- 
ed and accept the propert treatment, 
even thought it be an operation before 
it is too late!

Women above 35 are especially sub- 
ject to cancer. All of the female or- 
gans, the mouth of the womb and the 
mouth of the vagina are especially 
. susceptible cites. Often I find in pa- 
tients this history. A woman about 
40 or 45 years comes into the office 
for examination. She wa.s torn or lac- 
erateti 20 years ago in child birth and 
the laceration was never repafred. , ^ j.„ 
Now she is annoyed with a discharge |Sauhi 
— I place her on the table and find a' 
tumor which resembles a cancer. 1 
explain to her, the condition. She is 
ahocke<t and surprised. She is not 
sick;' She has only had a little an- 
noying discharge, sometimes mixed 
. with a little blood, but surely she 
'' hasn't any cancer! I tell her that a 
laboratory examination of the growth 
is the only possible way to make a 
jKJsitive diagnosis early. She cannot 
quite make up her mind. I tell her 
that rhe may lose her life if she hesi- 
tates, that a (juick decision and 
prompt action are the only salvation 
in cancer. She .ntill hesitates and fin- 
• . aHy decides to "go home and think it 
over." |l wish I had time to tell you 
of the urge number of women whom 
I. have known in my short time of ser- 
vice as a physiciah Who have 
"thought it over" until it was alto- 
gether too late. "Thought it over," 
until they have finally gone to the 
County Hospital to end, their days in 
misery and die a premature death — 
just because they cpuld not quite 
make up their minds to have a growth 
j-emoved while it was still a simple 
tumor or an early cancer.

You can "put off" an--operation and

Dear' Judge Langdon: ' , . ' i 

In Los Angeles County, aboutsev- 
enty .thousand Negroes, and fifty 
thousand of these live in the City of 
Los Angelas. Of thjs number, twenty- 
one are members of the- Bar and be- 
lotjg to the Blackstoqe Oub. We 
formed this dub becaUae the Los.Aq- 
geles Bar Association has never a^ 
eeirted the application of a member, bf 
our race for membership. Hoping to 
better serve our clients and to better 
uphold the highest ideals of the legal 
profession, we have oar little dtib in 
order that we can pull togethet in our 
common cause. 

We are happy to. know that you are 
a candidate for Associate Justice of 
the Supreme Court, and, at a meeting 
of o<tr ddb, held Augvst 3, 1926, we 
heartily endorsed your candidacy aad 
pledged ourselves to vrge oUr people 
to vote for your etertion. 

We have followed your work -upMj 
the bench and Kjoiee in your learn- 
ing in the law, and in your fearless ex- 
.position y>f its humane anA democrat- 
ic prindples. 

We deem it t«>.be true that the 
whims, likes and dislikes of some of 
the idtbeifs of oar state sometimea 
flndlexpnsaion in Contracts, and in 

groes. Once^theae bikaed BJmtinMnts 
reach the C^rts an4 |^ rtnetion in 
judidal opinion and decree, our dvil 
aiid political rights are often impiOr- 
ed because of arguments which ap- 
parently uphold the equality of equal 
ukws, but which in fact have veiled 
Bmitati<ms upon common law and 
eonstitmioRal rights from Which we 
alone suffer solely because of color. 

We b^Vi that 4he riglits of aU 
the people of ' our ' great eomifnon- 
wealth will find a. brawl aiid pdsitivo 
expression in your deerees. your «r- 
ders and omnions. , 

We have^been asked to apprise 
you of the.bearty endorsement the 
Blackstone'Qub has given ydU, and

I IBERM.^N TKANSt'ORTATlON S. 

S. AND KX< KLSIOR MINING CO. 

BEGINS REALIZATION OP 

.THE DREAM OF AFRO-. 

AMERICANS 

BARRON BROWN 

Hnn. Oscar Hu<l.«on, Liberian Trans- 
portation li. S. and Excelsior Mininjj: 
Company la.st .Sumlay on board the 
CHIAPAS at San Pedro addressed a 
largre Ratherins of the cotnpany'.s 
friends arid stockholders. In hi.=! elo- 
<|U6nt manner he described the inaug- 
uration of a direct steamship line from 
Los Ang:eFes port to Liberia as a mod- 
ern romance of business. 

It is a romance — a dream come- true. 
It is none the less romantic because 
business men take the olace of knight-s 
errant, or because the gonfalons of 
chivalry have given way to the pen- 
nantsi of commerce. It is the begin- 
ninsr of the realization of a dream 
long dreamed and hopes long,deferred. 

In -all the histroy of races and gov- 
ernments there is nothing more in- 
tere.sting or appealing than the e.s- 
tablishment and development of the 
government and country of Liberia. 
Consider — .More than a hundred years 
ago human slavery existed in Amer- 
ica. A race was held in hpysical bond- 
age- By great indusrty and frugal 
saving it was possible for a slave to 
MWclu^ his freedom; but with this 
4RBin(U he found him.^elf in possess- 
ion of only a mockery of freedom be- 
cause It did not carry with U the 


no le»s than twenty-two . indiginooa 
trees and plants which produce- this 
comnio<iity so essential to the 'main- 
tenance of human life and commeice. 
Very little rubber is as yet artificially 
cultivated; and yet rubber to ,the 
value of $50,000.00 was taken out of 
the country in five months! With 
proper planting and cultivation this 
commo<lity alone will total millions 
of dollars. In addition to this im- 
mense potential wealth Liberia has 
large forests of valuable hard-woods 
which include mahogany in great 
quantity. So plentiful and accessible 
is this precious wood that whole 
houses are sometimes built 6f it. Cof- 
fee and palm oil of the finest quality 
can be pioduced with little expense 
and in great quantities. Gold is plen- 
tiful in nugget form among the na- 
tives who use it for personal «iecora- 
tion. Precious stones are commonly 
found, and ivory in quantity is eas- 
ily available.

L. A. Deltas Breakfast 

With Honorary Soror 

Mary M. Bethone 

FAY JACKSON 

With the charming simplicity of 
the truly great, Mary IdcCleod Beth- 
une, foremost* woman of the Negro 
Race, sat as honored guest at break- 
fast laiit Saturday morning givNi by 
her sorors of Delta Sigma Thete sor- 
ority of which she is an honorary 
member. 

Twenty-four young college women 
representing both local chapters of 
the sorority together with visiting 
sorors of various eastern colleges as- 
sembled at Christian's Tavern to re- 
ceive this eminent woman who so 
beautifully represents the finest of 
womanhood in the Negro race — in 
f^t, a woman of whom any race may 
be justly proud. 

_..,., I A short period pf brtijodoetiims And

right to express a voice in the gov- 
ernment under which he lived and 
reared his children. In order that 
tbe.se slave.-., who bv one means or 
another ha.l gained their "freedom," 
might enjoy the rights of citizenship 
and live as free men in truth as well 
as in name, sonw New England white 
philanthropists fostered a movement 
to establish a free and independent 
government by and for the .Negro race 
on the continent of Africa, In 1822 
the first "settlers" arrived on the 
West Coast of that continent and 
lantled at a point known as Sierra 
I-eone. They met with .serious opposi- 
tion from the natives in this section 
ami were compelled to move farther 
south to a territory le.ss hostile but 
none the le.ss rich and inviting. Here 
where the coast of Africa begiiig its 
great sweep to the Ea.stward was cs- 
tabli.-hed the colony of Liberia. Af- 
ter the many dangerous and tryiiig 
vicissitudes of pioneer life in a wild 
and unsettled region these heroic pi- 
oneers establishe<l in 1S47 under the 
spon-iorship of President James Mon- 
roe the Republic of Liberia, framing 
their government after that of the 
United States and naming their Capi- 
tol Monrovia. A new flag was unfurl- 
ed in the galaxy of nations"; a new 
challenge to human slavery and to 
desl)oti.vm was issufed to mankind; a 
new destiny was bom. 

After a century of struggle against 
the predatory white powers e? Eu- 
rop.?, Liberia stands today with most 
of >er oiiginai territory intact, her 
mtegrity esublished, and her idials 
unsullied. The thing that so strongly 
link.s the sentiment of the colored 
race all over the world with Uberia 
ami which so strongly claims the feal- 
ty and affection of the race is the fart 
that on the whole continent where 
^lopia once reigned supreme-— in' 
tifW whole world, indeed — there is not 
another spot of terrain that the Ne- 
gro (?an point to and say, "That is my 

• homl There is one spot on the face 
of the^arth where I am sovereign!" 

Fate .seems to exercise an irony in 
the destiny of nations as in the des- 
tiny of individuals. Like the Osage 

^ Indians in our own country, the col- 
onict.s and founders of Liberia were 
eaftfip^lletl to go to a spot which was 
rtinote and which was considered 
worthless °by the rest of marikind— « 
place no one else wanted. And like 
the land of the Osagest Liberia in re- 
cent years has proved to be a very 
trea.'^ure-bouse of natural riches; so 
rich, indeed, that- now, when.it is too 
late for predatory white governments 
to dare confiseation or the festablish- 
nifnt of "protectorates" it is found 
that no territory on earth is more 
valuable to modem btvinesa or more 
neccessary to the world's continued 
-commercial development. 

Prof|ssor Edward Pi^tnaa. a. Li- 
•><»*» educator of not who is nww in 
this Nction as a special rapreaantatire 
of the Monrovian Chamber of (Smb- 
merre. in speaking to a mass maatinir 
op »Ve Chiapas 'fst Sunday told the 
amazing story of the developnaiit of 
this natural we-lth. Liberia waaM be 
}»»«fnep8elv wealthy if it prodiiead no- 
tldn4 bat rubber. Har tarrftorr haa 


once, unannooncad and qaite uncan- 
moniously. Mary Mcdaed Bethane 
burst forth with- a eleetrifying''*Giri8, 
Girls! I must speak, I cannot lose 
this precious time" ... It wa^the hu- 
man geyser breaking through re- 
leasing a volley of personal mag- 
netism unmiistable . in its purpose and 
its aim. . 

"It is such a rare treat," continued 
the speaker, "to meet young women 
such as you, fresh and idealistic, full 
of the hopes and aspirations of youth, 
that I- must tell you how very, very 
happy I am." 

The desire to see at least SOfiOO 
young women co-operating with the 
National Association of Colored Wo- 
men was expressed by aotor Bethone. 
"For," she explained, "we need tiie 
young woman's viewpoint; we need 
her vigor and enthusiasm. Our group 
is judged largely by the masses of our 
people, not by the cultured college 
women but b'y those in, the humbler 
callings of life. Yours must not be 
an existence of exclusion and snob-, 
bery but a fife of active service, "lift- 
ing as yon cl<mb." 

In a plea for a strongei* organiza- 
tion of Colored women, Mrs. Bethone 
said that the work of men is heralded 
and adored while that of women is 
given last place or entirely overlook- 
ed. "We must go to the front," cried 
the Black Joan, "and take our right- 
ful place; fir^t our battles and claim 
our victories!" 

Thus was Mary McCfeod Bethnne: 
a woman With a purpose; an artery of 
life, pulsating with energy; an^ in- 
deed, a woman of women consecrated 
to the noblest aim in life: Service. 

Indeed it was a beautiftil hour and 
Delta Siinha Theta is extremely proud 
to. hav^ been hostess to its honroary 
Boror.

WES her secretary, Mrs. Taylor, her-

finer points of the white man's civ-

mental ones but until we include in 
our program of upbuilding self-reli-

are able to back up^ur progress with 
the sound and practical thlnigs,. which 
in America spells economic wealth, we

PEDESTRIAJM^ FATAUTIES 

OF ALL KINDS FALLOFF 

AS COMPAREDWITH 

LAST YEAR 

Marked improvement is shown 


in 


the traffic fatality records in' Los 
Angeles for the last two months ii^ith 
l«ss deahts among children l^ing es- 
pecially evident in the report lately 
compiled by the .public tofety de- 
partment <a the . Automobile Club of 
Southern California. 

In the face of increased auto and 
pedestrian traffic, fatalities from mo- 
tor vehicle accidents in the city drop- 
ped t« twelve for July from the seyen- 
teen of the wme month of last year,, 
following the June reduction of fif- 
teen death this yiaar from the total of 
twenty-seven of 19*6. 

Althbugh nutning or playing in the 
street was the leaduig caase of motor 
fatalities during the two months last 
year, no deaths have occurred under 
this cause dtiring June and July, 
me. July had three laat year.Wd 
June had flve oh its score. Only sev- 
en fatalities ^ndar thia eawe are la- 
corded for the year to date, as against 
fifteen for tha same poiod of 1926. 
This is considitred a vahuble ^mpU- 
ment to the safety work of tha Auto- 
mobile Club of Southern CaHfomia ih 
the local schools, and ^iptiaaily to its 
scheme of playgroand' snpervi^on by 
student -guardiana 'during siimm^t va- 
cation.- i 


rare exapotive ability of^ ! Governor 
i Riahardson to find th^ spirit of fair ■, 
play and eiicoHragement in, all "of 
your elevate dendeavbrs." . 

Mrs. Bethane's atort of the Mgin-

Tlie affect af the goyernor'aqjeeeh 
was fmrnediatOly evident following 
the progrvml wbtat in an informal

including Icftders of the race, crowded 
about the Oovlemor and Mrs. Richard-

The fight ior the nomination of the 
United States senatorship in Califor- 
nia is not so much a matter of the 
Tariff issue or the World Court em- 
brbiglio as it is for the control of the 
delegation which will.be selected from 
California to the Republican Conven- 
tion which nominates the pre.<;ident in 
192S. The presidential b^ buzzes in 
some bonnets until the hive decays. 
Once it is set buzzing it will sting 
everything in its path to its ultimate 
goal— the White House. While Sen-^ 
ator Shortridge may not have pleased 
us at all times by the stand that he 
has taken, it seems that the greatest 
sin committed — according to h» op- 
ponents for renomination — is that, un- 
der every condition, he has supported 
the Administration and THAT IS 

WHAT WE ELECTEil HIM FOR.

The National Bar Association com- 
posed of the leading Negro lawyers of 
the United States met recently in the 
city of Chicago. There are so tnany 
vital questions which, as a Race, ef- 
fect us; so many legal points to be 
determined; so many court due is inns 
to be reviewed and antagonized, that" 
!^».aae - isaiting adth anxiety to fiwi 
out just -what that body has dona. 'We 
have.ino doubt tiiat "Jim-C i ew ^ and 
his aFsociate relatives of DiscrilBiiie- 
tion were dealt with from a legal 
standpoint and various means discuss- 
ed and formulate for their abate- 
ment. Special Assistant to tiie At- 
torney General, William C. Mattliews, 
at the present stationetl for special 
service in San Francisco, was (me of

We are in receipt of« survey of the 
farming activities of Negroes in Cali- 
fornia. It was sent to us by our old 
co-worker, Charies Hall, of the Cen- 
sus Bureau. Wiiile the result of that 
survey is very flattering, there ia 
considerable room for hirther im- 
provement. Plenty of land and op- 
portunity to purchase it. We still are 
preaching the doctrine of prodaetioB 
as the means of solving a vital {npoIh 
lem.

There is a party of Japanese sta- 
dents from the grammar grades and 
the uni-versities visiting here, StJi 
Francisco. In a recent converaatiaii 
one pf them informed this writer that 
California fruit was being shipped and 
despite .the Hph cost, was receiving 
favor over the fruit grown in tlie Ori- 
ent. We have claimed at aU times 
that the opportunities in this state for 
the intelligent famer was K'*ftest of 
any in the world. It has l>Mn o«r aim 
to di-vert the tread ctty-ward and di- 
rect it where it ' fflj^t becomf ; inde-

FRESNO 


-A deaionstrative protest against 
unscmynlous Negro politicians, who 
have been selling the Negro vote, was 
voiced in a big mass meeting at Gari- 
baldi Hall last Friday night. The 
practice -of these so-called race lead- 
ers in accepting variooa sums of mon- 
ey from candidates and promising 
them in return the Negro vote, has 
had its damaging effect in blocking ev- 
ery ^ort pot forth ^y eur group to 
gain recognition in city and county 
affairs. Out of the mass meeting a 
permanent, dominant political organ- 
ization was formed for thie purpose of 
combating these conditions knd for the 
general progre.«siveness of the Ne- 
gro in this city and county. Willi4m 
A. Bigby, Jr., was elected President; 
Mrs. Irene Hinds, Vice-Pres.; James 
L. Clarke, Secy.; Robert Strother, 
-Asst. Secy.; Rev. Fred A. Hughes,

1 Hf" POWER BONDS i 

We most heartly join in with all the forces which mean 
p ogress for the bailiwick in which we reside. It not only dem- 
tnstrates civic pride, but enhances the value of the home and 
makes the burden of living easier. Th eimmense net saving of 
$500,000.00 annually to tax payers is the answer as to our 
position on this particular bond ist.ue. The city must, keep pace 
along business lines just the same as an individual in business 
if at is to gain the maximum results. -The greater results' 
which the city attains for water and power the greater saving 
accrues to the consumer of these commodities. As \ye under- 
stand it the present bond issue* will add . two units to power 
plant No. 1, which will produce 28,000 horse power. This will 
be only a part of the benefit as a result of buying the lands in 
Owens' Valley. This horse power will, help in reducing other 
consumer's costs to a minimum. 

.•-we must at all times safe guard our oppor- 
tunity to keep up to the highest , efficiency our. present city 
owned proposition which means the very heart and core of our 
present advanced standing, and in this situation g{ye to the 
power bonds our unstinted supp<H^. 

One thing you ojustbe sure of, do not fall out with any- 
body about anybody's politics.

SHORTRIDGE FOR U. S. SENATE 

On what hypothesis can any member of our group fail 
to support the present junior Senator from this state, the Hon^ 
orable S. M. Shortridge? It is unreasonable to suppose there 
would be EVEN ONB who would do so, unless it would be for 
petty pelf or filthy lucre. 

Senator Shortridge is now and always has been a real 
humanitarian and one who has, with sincere devotion at all 
times, championed the cause of the down trodden without re- 
gard to race, color, or previous condition of iiervitude. Es- 
pecially true has this been the attitude of Senator Shortridg.e 
toward the colored citizens of California and la^er of the Na- 
tion. ' f " 

His dedd in championing the Dyer Anti-Lypching bill on ,^*'*" ^t '^^''s i!\"li™ £fr 
the iloor of the Unit(id States Senate was but in keeping with.-ji„fo; whL^^t' U "l he 
his stand for fair play for all peoples during his entire career. 
Hia stand for our group has been more outstanding, for the 
simple reason that they have stood in greater need of hia ser- 
vice. In other words they have been more oppressed than any 
other class. 

In the face of these circumstances,, if there are any of our 
group who would fail to rally to ther cause* of the Senator'^s 
success, they can be classed as nothing less than ingrates. 

We want to say that it is imperative for all of us to rise up , 
to the occasion and do our utmost in the present situation, by 
voting for the Senator and getting out every possible vote to 
help re-elect, not one whom we have heard to hie a friend to all 
the people, but one whom, we know is that friend. 

Aside from this angle of'the situation. Senator Shortridge 
has in his first term in the Senate, becamjB one of the sta-ong 
spokes in the wheels 6t the Government, and is recognized for 
his ability jind accomplishments. He fe a high credit to Calif or- 
jiia and the nation. CaHfornia is complimented indeed at the op- 
portunity to return him to th«! Senate for another term.

Much is being said about Mrs. Be- 
thune's praising .Governor Richard- 
son for giving such a welcome re- 
ception to the dub women, and there- 
by endorsing Governor Richardson 
for re-election. It takes a weak or bi- 
ased mind to stretch what Mrs. Be- 
thune said as an endorsement of the 
Governor. I took it a.s a high-class 
criticism of the Governor and his ad- 
ministration'. Have you ever been pub- 
licly ■ praised anti given credit for 
doing something that you had not 
been man enough to Avt That was 
the situatioft that the Chie^ 'Execu- 
tive found himself in. "' 

First. No great honor can be giv- 
en our Governor for the reception 
accorded our ladies. Mrs's Bethune 
told how the people of Salt Lake City 
had sent a special, comnffttee to meet 
the train and held a special concert 
in Morman Terapl^Toi- delegates. She 
also told of how the Chamber of Com- 
merce of Colorado took the whole del- 
egation sight-seeiing in that cHy. Then 
the California welcome that some 
would^make political capital of was 
only following the example set by 
other states through which the dele- 
gation passed. .,.- 

Mrs. Bethune praised the Governor 
for being big enoiigh to see no color 
when making his appointments for 
office and told him that it took a big 
man to select his aid with regards to 
the . color of his skin, and she also 
pleaded that other Governors would 
fofiow his example and give the col- 
ored man a chance and that all we 
wanted waS our equal chance with 
other citizens, and no special favors. 

How that could- be taken as an en- 
dorsement when none of the condi- 
tions in tfie speech had been met I 
faU io see. 

Praise him for befaig ^i^ enough 
to make his appointments without re- 
gards to color, when he had -failiBd in

very sinews of our industrial and so-

ing this time he has taken an active 
part in politics, but qever before 
sought pobfie -office, elective or ap-

this time in the opinion of Attorney 
Tyler to he overlooked for any reas-

of Los Angele^ municipal water sys- vorce^ alj^ for in fa<* not until one 
tem for many years. He stated yes- 
. terday that the proposed water and 
f power bonds to be submitted to the 
I people at the August 31st primary 
I election are urgently required if nec- 
essary water and power development 
work is to be carried forward. 

"Los Angeles has a habit of out- 
growing, its water and power supplies 
and distributing facilities as rapidly 
as they are made available," said Mr. 
Van Norman. "This, of course, is 
proof of our city's araasing develop- 
ment It also places upon the Munici- 
pal Water and Power Bureaus the ex- 
traordinary task of keeping pace with 
these demands. 

"ft is obvious that the only practical 
and business-like method if financing 
these permanent extensions and de- 
velopment^ is through, the issuance 
ef tonds, t» be retired fcem Water and 
Power Bo*eau earning* over a period 
of years. ' . 

"All interest and annual principal 
charges on these bonds are paid out 
of the revenues'of the ^ater and Pow- 
er Jfureaus. For this reason, the vot- 
ing of additional water .and power 
bonds, as required, doǤ not cost the 
taxpayers a single dollar. 

"Of the $10,000,00 water bond is- 
sue, approximately $6,000,000 are re- 
quired to carry through the city's wat- 
er bearing land purchases in Owens, 
Valley, scwjeie of the Aqueduct water 
supply. Possession of this land by 
the City is requir«l to guarantee and 
safeguard its aqueduct water supply. 

"To help finance additional reser- 
voir storage and water distributing 
trunk lines within the city itself, bond 
funds to the amount of $4,000,000 will 
be required during the next two years. 

"As the demand for greater quan- 
tities of water in Los Angeles are met 
by bringing down increasing volumes 
of water through the Aqueduct, the 
Municipal Power Bureau is presented 
with the opportunity to increase its 
production of hydro-electric- power in 
eenerating plants along the water 

"^ portion of the *li/)0(),000 powr 
er bond issue is required to install ad- 
ditional generating facilities ai- Pow- 
er Plant No. 1. Installation of these 
onits will make it possible for the 
Bureau to produce 28,000 horsepow- 
er of electric energy in addition to the 
quantity which can now be generated 
in its Aquedupt pltpits. The re- 
mainder' of the bond issue is needed to 
help finance', nrgentljt needed expaa- 
sions to itjt facilities for the han^ng 
of an ever increasing volume vS jfefrr 
tricity on itoi^Unes." 3!7 '

daring a ~ ' 


year expires can th*- ftial decree, or 
decree of divorce be "entered." This 
is never done unless the attorney for 
divorced wife, or husband files such a 
decree and presents it to the Court for 
signatuire (and finaltyy "entry" in the 
Judgment Book. In ^ thousands of 
cases, neither i>arty requests that this 
be done. A divorced xtersqn moves 
away, or waits -one year and re-mar- 
ries without further ado, and thinks 
himself— or (herself)— divorced. This 
entangles property rights and in fact 
is bigamy in many cases. Under the 
reform urged by Attorney Tyler, one 
year after the First Decree is entered, 
the Decree becomes final bj; operation 
of law, and neither divorced party has 
any further, concern, nor could any 
mistake be inade by a re-marriage by 
either.' Attorney Tyler says ^ous- 
ands ef married- ee up l e a new — a^ig 
together have had to re-marr^ beiiiuiie 
of Qie mistake he"ip»iJrts oat, land' 
many, many thousands are not now 
legally married, because no Final De- 
cree has ever biee Entered in the mat- 
ter of their former divorce. All of 
these difficulties would be'oyereome 
by his proposed reform, i . '■ ^

In the 73rd AssoidHy District, then 
are of course some people of consid- 
erable wealth, though nollMHtion of it 
is, technically i^>e«£ing, a ii^ibnajre 
colony, at this time, altHeifg^ at one 
time many rich people lived on What is 
new the Westwn edge ofhtt^e Distriict. 
The rank and file of fhie t^<^rs'ih the 
73sd Assemitly Di^Met %a^ vitalliy 
concerned in thoSe great utilities, 
which are in fact, living necessities, 
such as water, eiec&ic power and gas, 
which can be, and are being, dist^ribnt- 
ed under the wonderful program of 
municipal ownerahip, now afforded 
the people of the dty of Los Angeles, 

The base rate for water -per :■. ope 
thousand cubic feet in San Francisco 
(privately owned company) is $28.00,. 
while in Los Angeles, the rate is only 
$16.00. In some cities, the rate is as 
high as $35.00 per one tiiousand cubic 
feet, while, the averagvfor 188 citieli 
waa f 17.89J thus proving tbtA Los An^ 
geles is being anoilded a' very low 
water fate, free of any charge for 
meter service, such as San Francisco 
must pay. Everyone knows that the 
low electric power^rate has been the 
back-bone of our manufacturing in- 
dttstrii^and hbaineas. For these |««- 
sons, inmUe ownersbip of water, elec- 
tric ipower'ana gas, should neves be 
sonrei^dered, by faihue to pass the '

gans, the mouth of the womb and the 
mouth of the vagfeia are especially 
susceptible cites. Often I find in pa- 
tients this history. A woman about 
40 or 45 years cones into the office

the laceratK>n was never repaired.

LA. FORUM, PIONEER aVIC ORGAMZAHON, 
pORSES WATER AND POWB( BONDS 

\ Last Sunday's meeting at the L. A. Forum was full of ac- 
tion and fervid oratory was cut loose in geHerous portions. 

It seems that in a moment of forgetfulness, that this great 
body which had always stood squarely by all measures which 
meant the onward march of progress for the growth of ouir city, 
in an absent-minded momept and desutry manner voted aginst 
endorsing the Water and Pover Bonds. 

Therefore on last Sunday the question was opened on a 
motion to reconsider, and this brought about the fireworks. 
Mr. John Pitts, former president of the Forum, ably assisted by 
Noah D. Thompson, Mrs. Lulu Slaughter and others overcame 
the futilie attempt to fiiliburf^r by one or two isolated opponents 
and the final vote was nigh unto a unanimous vote in favor of the 
bonds. 

This Expression at the Forum is a faifr barometer as to 
how the people stand upon, this great question and demonstrates 
that you can depend upon the people at all times when ques- 
tions of import are at hand such as the continued prosperity- of 
our city is concerned. ' * 

They are marching forward and onward 50,000 strong 
in favor of the Bonds.

BrOwn suid Ashmore furnished the 
fans with one of the slowest fights 
ever seen at the Main Street club, t It 
was a clinching affair from the fi st 
gong to the last. 

Don Chcbarria defeated Chuck Nalsh 
in the four-nmnd semi-windup in the 
best fight of the evening. Phil Harris 
and JMike Flores went four ounds ,to

WiDVoderyShot 

(By A. N. P.) 

New York, Aug;. 28.— WiU Vodery, 
noted orchestra - mader and arranger 
of music, was shot in the arm early 
Wednesday morning wjien two foot-, 
pads trailed him to the door of his 
apartment and sought to rob him of a 
13,000 ring he wore. The bandits 
were unable to take the ring from his 
finger, but robbed him of $16 which 
he carried in his pocket. Vodery was 
not seriously hurt. ' ' 

Gans Defeats Callahan 


The blow whirled Gans across the 
ring and into the ropes. Groggy and 
badly shaken. Callahan tried his best 
to fiqsh Jiiio but. iuJpPK-Iiv head. Cans 
-saved himself by clinching and cov- 
ering till be could get his bearings, 
and partly recover. 

In the sec(Aid he was more careful 
and Callahan more confident, carry-? 
ing the fight to Gans, but Gans had^ 
recovered and held him even. 

In the third Mushy landed three 
hard lefts t oGans' wind but the game 
little fighter took them all and more 
than out pointed him the round 
through. , 

In the fotirth Gans'eanie out like a 
whirl wind chasinirMtishy all over 
the ring knocking him half through 
the ropes and staggering, Gans hit- 
ting him with rights aid lefts at wilL 

From then on Gans jbiled up his big 
lead till the referee raised his hand 
in the tenth, while the thousands of 
fans white and colored yelled, 
screamed ,and went wild long after- 
ward. , ^rJ|| 

Central Avenue was crowder with' 
well wisliers late in the night and an 
impromptu dinner and reception was 
held when Gans ate his supper at the 
Entertainers Cafe. 

Matchmaker "Wad" Wadhams will 
undoubtedly sign the battlers f«r a 
return match. It's a cinch the house 
will be packe<l again. It was a whale 
of a scrap and there is no reason why. 
the rematcli shoolibit be even more 
exciting. 

Young McGovem t°homped Manuel 
Frayo in the special event, Joe 
Schlocker, punching hard and boxing 
beautifully, copped: the semi-wind-up 
from Freddie Mack. Joe Barna beat 
Al Neff and Tommy Palacio was de- 
feated by Chappy' Cruz.

ARTICLE I. 


I Ever sipce Adam and Eve had s«eh 
a *oiTrterfBl Romance, it has been said, 

' that man shall not live in peace with 
a woe-man, or without a *oie-jnan. 
So, according to that, poor tMn is 
in a ticklish position. Man, being the 
stronger of the two, is .supposed to be 
woman's master; but it bringi a latigh 
when you think of him as stich. tKi 
.average married man in IjOS Angeles, 
is in many cases afraid to 8p«ak above 
a whisper, although he is a past mas- 
ter at talking at the big gate. _, 
Woman has gradually come to ihe 
ftont in a most forceful way, exer- 
cising her rights with a rolling pin 
physically, and by casting her vote 
politically, the latter can best be te.^- 
tifled to by talking to some poor, 
Hown-trodtlen inan, who has sought a 
divorce. When he gets through sing- 
ing the blues to you, there will be no 
doubt left in yonr mind as to hri» 
power with the biggest majority of 
domestic court judg^es. Why, Judge 
Summerficid will almost hang you on 
a woman';; word, so what chance have 
you got. You might as well step right 
out and take one of the innocent thing.s 
for life, and try to do as she says, or 
curl up and die. The only man who 
have any reasonable amount of suc- 
cess in .'^ccijring a divorce after they 
are once hookeil, are the ones who 
live in HoUywoot!, where thay marry 
today and get a divorce tomorrow, 
itowever, there are a few left who 
have not succumbed to the pre-emi- 
nence of wortiaff. They stand in a 
band, as the rock of Gibralta, boldly 
in defiance of the feminine sei, with 
good jobs, and fair incomes, they go 
unmolested in their care-free way, 
no one to tell them they must Stay 
home, and no one to bounce a rolling 
pin off their hcad.<;. But it has been 
said that even a rock can bo worn 
down by the constant dripping of- 
water, and though, they appear hani 
boile.1 and uTwonc^rned, SOME DAY 
THEY WILL FAILL; to this end, I 
am writing this article, in order to 
let the women of Los Angeles kpow 
that in their very midst, there are no 
less than fifty Pullman Porters, who 
are cheating .<ome good woman out of 
a home and the comfort.^ of life by 
rtaying sins^e in-defia<rce ef Widen 
traditionr. — if the right woman comes 

^long, at the right time and puts up 
the right Uinl of battle, the spoils 
will be hers. 


JUDGE WOOD 


OPPOS 


!D BY 


AHORNEY 


August 27,' 1926. 
Editor "EAGLE":— 

Answering your question: I do not 
think that Judge Walton Wood ex- 
pects the vote of, any Negro other 
than a certain individual whose name 
appears on two "Wood" articles in 
your last issue. 

Your write-up, in November, ,1922, 
e<rtjcerning the case of Mrs. Annie 
Williams vs. Boos Bros. Cafeteria, 
ahould bej remembered by every blsck 
man in the state. You will recall that 
Mrs. Annie Williams, a middle-aged, 
shicere colored W. C. T. U. worker, 
was most humiliatingly refused ser- 
vice when she and some of he*' white 
friends' entered the cafeteria. Your 
paper then gave a clear, but mild, 
idea of what Walton Woo<l thought of 
snch cases, and how the people pres- 
ent in couirt were filled with chagrin 
over his avovfred opposition to the law 
which he wa.4 compelled to enforce. 1 
think that a" judge should endeavor 
to leave the public in a mood to co- 
operate with the law which he is 
ELECTED TO EKFORCE UPON 
THOSE '"WHO ELECT HIM: other- 
• wise, the law is a mockery!

THE BETTER SUFFRAGE LEAGUE , ' 

' The Better Suffrage. League e.mbryo pqlitical organiza- 

tion, which is composed of many of our leading citizens, has our 
best wishes for a fulfilment of its pronounced ideals. 

We say this despite the fact that upon the proposition of 
the bond issiie we are at variance wivh the organization. 

We cannot see wherein we could justify ourselves in 6p- 
po.sing the things which |tand for our vecy existence and where 
it means to sacrifice our standing as progressive citizens and in 
the end we have accomplished nothing whatever to cure our 
ills. ^ 

Therefore we will depart fronr the Suffrage League upon 
this issue. We are in the main with it on almost all other con- 
tentions.

Wafer and Pow^ 
er Bends 


Artiiur S. Bent, president of the 
Los Angles Chamber of. Commerce, 
in a statement isued jreiterday, drew 
attention to the rapid rate at which 
this city's water and power Tequire- 
ments are increasinir and strongly 
urged that the people authorihe the 
proposed water and power bonds at 
the August 31st primary election as 
the only means of develop'ng additien- 
al water; and power resources and -fa- 
cilities now needed by industries and 
homes in this area. 

Mr. Bent pointed out that both the 
Water Bureau and the Power Bureau 
are self-sustaining municipal utilities 
and will meet a'l interest and princi- 
pal charpes on the bonds from the'r 

! own earnings, without any cost what- 

i ever to the taxpayer.^;.

TYLER FOR THE ASSEMBLY 

Despite the fact that these columns have been freely open 
to all contenders for Assembly honors. Eagle readers, know only 
W. 0. Tyler in the premises. 

Mr. Tyler no doubt, will represent tni*^ district with rare 
ability and will bring forth things worth while for tbn 73rd 
district. i 


ALL CROOKS LOOK ALIKE TO US 

A crooked preacher will have a harder time getting by the 
Searching Eye of the "Soaring Eagle" than any other sort ;of 
crook. In fact we will give them -no quarter. The only w^y 
in which they can operate is to do so on the square. We ma«ih 
ahead on o'l/r campaign of pitiless publicity against them un- 
afraid. , The interest and standing of the race must be main- 
tained at all hazards and in due time the crooked preacher 
will get in his proper place as a profligate desperado or bum. 
It matters not to us. ;

JOE CRAIL S 

It looks like a run awayrace for Congress in the 10th Dis- 
trict with that intrepid, energetic friend of all the people, the 
Hon. Joe Crail, as the winner. He has clearly won this fight 
by his matchless genius and truly we believe with Joe Crail in 
Congress the old 10th District will be represented as never be- 
forp. 


BILL TI^GER for sheriff 

Trae to forin the big, good natured Sheriff of Los Angeles 
County, William I. Treager, is makjng a r§cordr«un and we 
miss our guess if he fails to go over in the primary. Yes we 
are all for big Bill Treager. 


TUESDAY'S PRIMARIES , . • ' " 

I' 

Tuesday night at 7:00 o'clock will bring to a clpse in some 
respects the most rem.irkable primary campaign ever held 
;, within the confines of the State. It has been so from the fact 
that for the major offices to be chosen that the contenders have 
not even had what is known as an organized effort behind 
them. 

To select a candidate ifi the primary ia personal to the 
candidate or in other words, it is a contest between factions. In 
this contest the factions have failed to perform as of yore. They 
have fallen short on even getting out propaganda to state their 
case. ' 

This paper, as a rule, opens its columns for the various 
candidates or factionrfto state their cise to just whatever ex- 
tent they desire measured by inches in , advertising space. But 
m so far as the major offices are concerned there has net been 
any great demand for inches. Therefore being not in a position 
to donate oursplves no matter hft-w much we would desire to 
do 80, we had At no time an opportunity to call a tune. If we 
called a tune we certainly would have had to pay the fiddler 
lor doing so. Therefore the columns of this paper have been 
wide open to all to state their case without 
counter editorials.

sUe>4nd the $11,000,000 power bond 
issUii have been approved -and endors- 
ed hv the Board of Directors of the 
Chamber of Commerce,"., stated Mr. 
Bent. ' "This #»idffr.sement was given 
after a careful and detailed study of 
the' needs of the City with re^rai'd to 
ajlditional water and power supplies 
an^! facilities. •' 

''Investment of bond money, frotn 
tira^ to time, to help finance addition- 
al WStter afld power supplies as re- 
qui*W- by the people ot Los Angeles 
is essential to the progress and pros- 
perity of our city. Such investment.<! 
of bond money are an oifierly aid 
businesslike procedure in expanding 
the City's water and power sy.stems. 
and developing additional supplies of 
these necessities, as required. 

"The Board of Directors of the 
Chamber of Commerce, in endorsing 
the bond issues, feels, and I personal- 
ly am convinced, thatlthese bonds are 
neces.sary at this timi; and the work 
thus to be financed should be carried 
forward without delay. 

"Our City is in the business of sup- 
plying its citizens with water, power 
and light.v If Los Angeles' inoreasipg 
water, power and light requirements 
are to be met, and this city's continued 
expansion and prosperity tljus sup- 
ported, we niust provide for the de- 
velopment of this "vital re.sources 
through the issuance of bonds. 

"Our Water Bureau ami our Pow- 
er Bureau are both selfrsupp»rting 
utilitie.s. Therefore, it i^ill cost the 
taxpayers nothing to approve the pro- 
po.se<l water and power bonds. All 
charges on these bonds, as provided 
in our new City Charter, are paid 
from earnings of the Water and»Pow- 
cr Bureaus, and not from taxes." 

Mr. Bent is a member of Bent 
Brothers,. Inc., ti . cojismction firju 
whicfi recently completed the buildmg 
of the Exchequer Dam on the Merced 
Rivfer in Califorhia. This dam, one of 
the largest water storage structures 
ever built in this ^tate, has created a 
reservoir capable of storing 280,000 
acre feet of water for the Merced Ir- 
rigation project.

brought him recqgnition as one of the 
leading jurists of the state.

The statement that Dr. Hudson 
dorse the Governor's candidacy after 
made, viz., that Mrs. Bethune prais- 
ed thejGoVernor for what he SHOULD 
HAVE DONE is not alone an IN- 
SULT to this leader of the Women's 
Federated Clubs, of America, who in 
ber absence from our community is 
without an opportunity to defend her- 
self or reiterate the statements that 
.she mSide on* that occasion, but is also 
an insult to the intelligence of the 
leaders of the Women's Clubs of Cali- 
fornia and to those presfent on that oc- 
casion. There is no doubt but that 
the actions of Dr. Hudson will have a 
tendency to cement and unite the wo- 
men, not alone of Los Angeles, but of 
the whole State, in carrying out the 
advice and counsel given them by our 
most capable leader in America today.

fore the public today, locally. His 
Career as citizen and soldier has been 
watche(l closely and in no way has he 
ever failed to merit the love and con- 
fidence of those whom he has contact- 
eil, his abality as a lawyer is well 
established. His knowledge of the 
affaiip «f i.tate is unquestioned. His 
splendid record made iluring his long 
experience in the district attorney's

ei-ship and no candidate now seek'ng 
our suffrage is more deserving our

patriotic body in the State and the 
names of hundreds of political aiul

widely divergent interests. We are 
earnestly appealing to every voter 
who is standing for justice, equality

Los Angeles, Cal., Aug. 23. — An un- 
known white man wa« badly ?njtired 
in an a/fray that occurred between 
him and a colored man on Sunday 
night last at the comer of 9th and 
Hemlock streets. Parties who wit- 
nessed the affair say it began when 
the white man 2uked the Negro about 
two colored women he had jtist ex- 
corted home from church. He wag 
left bleedii^K and lincoindixiB by th* 
other combkntant who escaped w'lh- 
out anyone leaminfr his identity.

we have in our higher cwita. .It is 'to 
be hoped that California wiU not ^ fail 
to avail itself of the opportunity of 
placing so valuable a njan on the Su- 
preme bench." 

Superior Judge J. C. Needham, suc- 
cessor to Judge Langdon on the Su- 
perior- Court bench in Stanislaus 
County, and former member of Con- 
gress, representing a district in which 
San Diego once was included: "I 
strongly favor Judge William H, 
Langdon for promotion to the Su- 
preme Court. His ability, integrity, 
experience and especially his aptitude 
for d'spatch of work, will make him 
an ideal mertiber of our highest court." 

Mayor James Rolph, Jr., of San 
Francipco: "It is encouraging that a 
man and jurist of Judke Langdon's 
character and ability will seek a place 
o nthe Supreme bench. He is excep- 
tionally fitted for higher judicial res- 
ponsibilities." 

R. M. Fitzgerald of Oakland, one of 
the leaders of the California, Bar: 
"Judge Langdon has in unusual de- 
gree the true judicial temperament 
which may be relied on at all time to 
do fair and impartial justice." 

Judge Langdon was formally re- 
ceived by adjournment of the Superior 
Court in San Diego, Monday and in- 
troduced by the judges to the two 
score attorneys before the bar. In 
one of the courtroomsi an attorney, 
an ex-judge, six feet four inches tall, 
with a foot resting on a chair, was 
arguing as Judge Langdon entered. 
"You reminded me of Abraham Lin- 
coln, ^and I am sorry to have inter- 
rupted your address," said the judge. 
"I am ffom.Sanganaon^ County in Ill- 
inois," replied the attorney proudly. 
"My father left there in 1856 when 
he came to California," replied Judge 
Langdon. I An exchange of Lincoln 
stories followed. It developed that 
Judge Langdon's father, during his 
lifetime, was one of the corroborat- 
ing authorities for the story of the 
farmer who at the White House thirty 
years afterward asked Lincoln what 
he did with a whetstone He used while 
scything hay 'f^^be farmer, and the 
President nm^mend placing it on 
top of a higb gatepost, where it was 
found when tlie farmer returned 
home. Judge Langdon's- father, in 
his youth, was a neighbor of theS~ 
mer who ncrvec gave np in his eJ 
to recover a gOod whetstone, and 
a letter from him telling of the White" 
House inclement.;

Paris, Prance, Aug. 25. — A curioas' 
gathering has just been held in this^ 
city which brouight together som^ of 
the great names of Trance, in the 
name of the committee lirhose work is 
the abolition of slavery, and which 
was founded by Georges Rostaing, .ex- 
commissioner «f the merchant marine 
and colonial tatplawt. 

Despite the nnetal ignoruice of

Slavery might be said to be the func- 
tion of eannlbalisin there* . . . . , 

But the question has so fac remain.. .^

Stung to -the- qui<i by the publica- 
tion of the article on the .supposedly 
Negro Exposition ( which in reality 
was nothing nriore.than the cheapest 
of cheap Carnivals) in our la.st issue, 
an'ent the connection of one who styles 
hiin.self as F/ev. Li B. Brown, this 
self same "sky pilot" pounced upon 
the editor of this paper near Spring 
and Foui-th streets last Monday morn- 
ing to engage hhnun physical com- 
bat. ' 

We are free to admit that the gen- ■ 
tleman representing the cloth by his 
audacity caught as inomentarily off 
our guard, got his fingers in our 
mouth, scratched our face' and clawed 
at our eyes before we could turn on 
the power; and t,s a result of the as- 
sault we have had one blood-shot eye 
and some facial seratehes for some 
days. 

Further, we are sure that if there 
was one lingerinf> doubt of the truth- 
fulness of the story published, that 
doubt has iio\f disappeared like the 
baseless fabric ot a vision. For no 
man would, for one moment resort to 
taking the law into his :own hands as 
this one, unless he had been stung. 
Lies dont hurt, but the truth, wiien 
it hits the mark, cuts not unlike a 
sabre. 

This RE;P^£K»^£NTLEMAN 

used such profane language in threat- 
enmg the lift 4f«4l^ editor Auitiiee 
cannot, and would '/itot, soil these 
pages by attemptini^ feven to abbrevi- 
ate what he said. 

We have a written statement from 
him since this incident, asking the 
editor to retrack, that he has proof 
that we have wronged h|m. 

What we want to say is, that we 
play no favorites and' wh^pever he 
proves to us that we are wrong and 
he is right, we will be gjad to retract, 
but L until then there is nothing doing. 
The very fact that we were on the 
¥ight track has been furnished in the 
acts which speak louder than words. 

Tn-eats don't scure this e^'.itor by a 
loRK .'•lu.t. t^nd ar to the cruv'.o street 
fighting, we wiP Iea<re that to the 
PARSON, with an ikbiding faith that 
we can defend ourselves at any stage 
-of the game — if not attacked coward- 
ly, a. 

Even -tileugh we enOed a name in 
oijr article iof last issue, we meant to 
be wholly" impersonal; we ourselves 
count for nothing, our objective is to 
eternally Put a rtop to EACE EX- 
PLOITATION and MKBEPBESEN- 
XATION. We thought then, and 
^think now, that the rne was MISUS- 
ED in the premises spoken of and did 
not hesitate then, or evfen now, to de- 
nounce the procedure of the confessed 
head of the same. ' . . 

We know that it makes the roajj 
hard for future efforto if it is true 
ehat the City Council finds out that 
it was imposed upota in putting up 
miles of decorations just for a CAR^ 

What we said about GAMBLING 
GAMES must have been true, for the 
place was RAIDED last Satorda^ 
night and more than a score of ar^ 
rests were made ; they plead GUIL- 
TY to- conducting G~A M B L I N G 
GAMES and were FINH). 

The Negro Business League at its 
meeting on last Thursday evening 
^anied drastic resolutii^is denounce 
jbg the misrepresentation and ap- 
pokted a eommittoe to wait upon Ae 
Oty Council, the l&ypr, etc The 
universal aentiment ahiong real race 
leaders is that we have been HUM^ 
$UGCED; we ate still ef the same 
opinion. Holding this opinion we 
cannot do otherwise than to keep 
hearing to line let the chips fall wher^ 
thov may. V.V art trying to -'o )«wf

the Association by properly-accredit- 
ed messengers from the various pub- 
Ucations. 

An "Address to the Country" tjIbs 
delivered, full of pep, making certain 
specific requests of the American 
people, setting forth grievances that 
were not shadows, and at the same 
time, complimenting the American 
people for certain adjustments of 
wrpngs that h^ hitherto existed. 

Two women wgre added to the of- 
ficial family. Maiiy social courtesies 
were shown by tfijs Philadelphia peo- 
ple. The Sesqui-t^entennial officers

How She Arose From 
ObscBrity To 
SbardoDi < 


But Madam Sul-Te-Wan was not 
destined to remain in ' obscurity. Her 
popularity as a little actress soon 
spread abroad. 

In her oSrn estimation, J>er one 
and only handicap was her name and 
after fihc had successfully filled sev- 
eral vaudeville acts in her owii town, 
and state, calls began to come In from 
other sections of tbe country. 

But Madam Sul-t^-Wan y^ms no 
longer looked upon. as the vivacious 
little black .beauty about the i^ace, 
she was waxing rapidly into woman- 
Kod along with being the stage 
Iscream of her section, the' little lady 
was the center of attraction for all 
tthe young men in the comAitinity 
who were seeking wives of foitane 
suid fame. •

Lmany a case of ti^rculosis has starti 

; ed from one seve|« cold. For thi$ 

I reason it behoovefe us to consider 

j carefully the preventioa of every res- 
piratory and tonsilar disease. 

I -A few rules carefully adhered to 

1 will increase the body's resistance and 

j greatly decrease the probability of ^ 

; taking colds. . i .-o » v- P > 

1. t'ou perspire more freely m the 1 '^"^.;.-__.' .. 
summer. Dried perspiration dogs tjhe 
pores and decreases your elimination. 
\ery frequent bathing w necessary to 
prevent ^is condition. At least one 
bath a day for the ^hole body is nec- 
essary in hot weather in order to keep 
the eliminating prot)erties of the skin 
in lipC/r condition. .,.;, 

2. '*rhfi bowels must move every 
day freely. This should be regulat- 
ed by diet. If you do not Have natur- 
al movements go to a reliable doctor 
and find cmt why you suffer from con- 
stipation. JnLst this may save ycjur 
life for it is hard to contract any dis- 
ease when the bowefe move freely, 

I thus carrying off poison. 

I .3. The kidneys must be flushed well. 

j Poisons 3t?ore up in the liver, kjd- 

1 neys, spleen and bladder are reab- 

I sorbed and poison the body. This can 

I be prevented by drinking copiously 
of water or fruit joices between 

I meals. Water is cheap and drinking 

I it freely saves many doctor's bills. 

I 4. What we eat makes us, weaker 

! or stronger. More suseeptable to 

1 colds pr less; so. No one .should eat 

I h^avj- foods io hot weather. One pork 
dinner may be your ruination. If 
you value yoiir life during this hot 
weather stay absolutely away from 

, all parts of th? hog. 

i 5. In-door life breeds colds. Get 
out-doors as much as possible. Leave 
off night life. Live out-door:^

Homes of Ne- 

Street District 
on the West side of Chicago were the 
objects of attacks by white residente 
Wednesday night. Police say that the 
whites were angered when Negroes 
encroached beyond a line which the 
whites had agreed among themselves 
was far enough for the colored citiz- 
ens to go. An automobile belonging 
to a colored man, Robert Woodman, 
was destroyed, and flaming rag-wrap- 
ped bricks were thrown through the 
windows of the home of George Wil- 
liams, a blind veteran of the Worid 
War. One girl was seriously hurt. 
Firemen extinguishe<i the flames and 
police ret.sored or.ler. guards being 
placed around several houses occupied 
by Negroes. . ■ c 

The .Ma.\well Street district is or- 
tqn referred to as "The Ghetto." It 
is very thickly populated with JewisOi 
tradesmen, and poor foreigners. It 
is a great market center. In the last 
few years many Negroes have moved 
into the district, most -of the incoming 
from the south. It was there that 
William Bell was h-ncheti three years 
ago. ^_^

SMITH'S DRUG STORES 


By: WILLIAM PICKENS 

(For the Associated *5egro Press) 

.\bout two generations »go a little 
bright-eyed bi^ck boy, naimed R R. 
Wright, Was 4 student in the early 
grades of Atlajita Universijty. A nor- 
thern white victor who w»s speaking 
to the school audience aiked what 
message he should carry back to the 
friends in te north who webe support- 
ing the institution. The ambitious 
little black child, with the smile on 
his face which has been characteristic 
of him for 50 years since, held up his 
hand and shoilted out of his soul: 
'Jes' tell 'em Here's rLsin'!" 

That Vas a true word ind a piio- 
phecy.' This human being has been 
rising ever since, and his race has ris- 
en with him. He became 4 teacher, a 
leader of his people and o^ his state, 
president of the (Jeorgia State Col- 
lege for Negiloes, — and alftcr doing 
about all that dny black main would be 
permitted to do in Georgia, he had 
sense and grit enough to move away 
I to Philadelphia, Pa., where the im- 
jprovement over Georgia ^livilization 
' would permit him to do i bit more. 
; Today be is founder, and president of 
' the Citiaens and Southern I Banlt'~and 
! Trust Company at 19th knd South 
Streets, and his institutioii is desig- 
nated as a "City Depository]." 

This is the kind of black man who 
will ultimately confound an{y effort to 
I keep Uack people in an inferior stat- 
us. He has even raised a 1 family to 
good repute and good works, one of 
Whom, R. R. Wright, Ji^., is his 
strongest business partner knd is na- 
tionaSy known as a scholajr, an edit-' 
or "and a church leader. I 

"rftis would be a noteworthy achieve- 
ment for any white iaan ih America 
who started oat poor and lof a poor 
famfly. For ai Wack nuwi,! handicap- 
ped by persistent oppositio|n. it is a 
marvelous achievement. | It takes 
more brains and diaracter to be » 
snecessful blade man than to be a 
successful white inan in A country 
with a color liM domniated l>y whites. 
If Wrigi^ could adii^ thi^ by break- 
ing' open closed dors, what might he 
pot have achieved if aH dors had been 
open to h»ra ? Suppose tiat every po- 
litical office in Oorgia, up through

Chicago, Aug. 25.— Frank Keenan, 
White, a veteran actor, starred m 
the plav "Black Velvet," has turned 
over to' postal authorities, a letter 
threatening him with death if he does 
not leave town immetliately and dose 
up his play. Inclosed in the letter to 
Keenan was a cUpping, praising the 
actor's work in "Black Velvet," but 
condemning the play. "The ^tter pur- 
ported to express the view of ■•^S,50U 
Negroes" and Warned Keenan that he 
would be shot on sight. He has hir- 
ed -"everal detectives to guard him. 

Last week the Chicago Defender 
and the Chicago Whip both direrted 
attacks against the play "Black Vel- 
vet," holding 1*at it was an msult to 
the Negro race worse than the Birth 
li a Nation." The attack of the Whip 
was especially spirited, but gave due 
credit to Keenan's work as an actor.

*'it has been said that American citizenship is a BADGE OF HONOR. It is my hope and de#ir« tiifeit^t«hall be a SHIELD OF PROTECTION to the pitizens 
of every race and color/'-~Senator Shortridge in presenting the Dyer Anti-Lyncliing BiU to tiie S«tAte. ;<« . ' . \ 


i- ^ 


The Hon. JAMES WELDON JOHNSON, National Executive Secretary of the N. A. A. C.<l*;, uflder. date of March 10, 1926, wrote as follows: 
Shdrtiidge did all he could when the (Dyer Anti-Lynching) Bill was up in the Senate. However.Jbe did-^t getthe support that he was entitled to." 


'Senator 


Hop. Walter L. Cohen, Controller of Customs at the Port of New Orleans, La., whSjjife appointinnt was contested by. Southern Senators for more than a year, 
says: "Senator Shortrijdge's earnest support of me for confirmation as Controller of Customs at N^w Orleans, in the face of the opposition of the two Senators from 
my State who resorted to the long established custom of the United States Senate to recogl^ize the "Fersonal Objection" of a Senator, has placed me under riiuCh ob- 
ligation to him. His record on the Anti-Lynching Bill should cause eyery member of our Race to^iye him their support" ' 

. Prof. K^lly Miller— ex-Dean of Howard Univer sity, the man on the watchtower, always ofeetving: the attitude and conduct of the legislators who meet at the ' | 

^^ational Capitol, and scrutinizing every race measure coming under their consideration, writes; "L^avejbeen especiallji^ interested in his (Shortridge's) attitude 
on human rights as they relate to the Colored Race, and have found that he stands firin where many of our be lieved friends.^ are inclined ^to devi|ite and to Dod^^. ■ 
The managenient of the Dyer BiU in the Senate was well placed upon the willMg shoulders of Senator Short ridge, while the Republican Veterans,«hirked thairesr' 
ponsibility. It is well known h^re that the party leaders wefe playing a cheap gafne of politics with a great rh oral measure. But not so with Senator Shortridge. 
He fought for the success of the measure with all of the honesty and ardor of his nature, while other^lepublic ans contrived with the Democrats to encompass its 
defeat." ■ - ' .f,. .■ . ..' ^ ' ■■ .i ! - ' ' ■ i 

Attorney E. Burton Ceruti— Of Los Angeles, ardent advocate of human rights, says: **With lii^ possible exception of California, Senator Shortridge is recog- 
nized in every State of the Union as our authorized spoksman in the Senate, and the outstanding champion of N§gro rights at the; Capitol." • - j

Ca3ifom'!a colored people in general 
and to the Soctbland Negroes in par- 
ticular. His high integrity arid un- 
bia.scd decisions on the bench have 
made him a favorite with the Negroes 
in every section of California. 

Only recently a large and enthusi- 
astic demonstration was given in be- 
half of the Justice when he visited the 
~ovlth!and for the first time since 


U. S. C. College of Law if acuity, re- 
ceived the hig^st grade int the Civil 
Service exanum^on for 66c&ty Coun- 
cil under the Bftw County'CSharter. 

In 1915 he Was made trial ileputy 
City Attorney and adviftfry to the 
Board of Education, Police, Fire and 
other Commisaion.s. Smjre theri, he 
has beea doling Judicial w;(M^, conduct-

Many of the most prominent etergy- ' ^« ^t'^'ty natters all over the

supporting Justice Curtis at the pri

Judge Walton J. Wod was the first 
pcAr man's lawyer. In 1914, he es- 
tafiUslidd tile oSiee of Public Blend- 
er in Loe Angles, the first in the 
United jMates. Bti* dnties were to 
irroteA fte poor and defenseUsa, and 
so well did If: serve in this caMCitj^ 
that the people elected him Judge of 
■.he Saperier Court. 
, The work of Judge Wolods on the 
Superior Court Bench has always 
shown a great carefulness on his part 
in protecting the rights of the weak, 
against "the strong. Many colored 
people have litigated cases in his 
Court, and have always had decisions 
baseti upon their merits, and for this 
reason, he is highly recommended to 
the voteis for the .\ugu.st Primary.

Ko-one is more deserving of the support of the readers of 
thia Journal thai| Judsre VLfony A. Holzer'and alonfir with others, 
i3ci»d and true, we ask for your earnest consideration, for a man 
who will stand every test, and that man is Judge Harry A. 
Holzer. _ < ^ .

PROVED THEIR 'WORTH .!rr'>"f1 

Speakiie of Judges, our readers will not soon forget such 
stalwart frieqas of ail the people as Judge Albert Lee Stephens, 
Charles S. Bu'sneli, Crail and Valentine. ' 


THE BETTER SUFFRAGE LEAGUE 

The Better Suffrage . League embryo political organiza- 
tion, which is composed of many of our leading citizens, has our 
best wishes for a fulfilment of its pronounced ideals. 

We say this despite the fact that upon the 'proposition of 
the bond issue we are at variance with the organization. 

We cannot see wherein we could justify ourselves in op- 
posing the things which stand for our very existence and where 
it means to sacrifice our standing as progressive citizens and in 
the end we have accomplished nothing whatever to cure our 
ills. ' 

Therefore we will depart from the Suffrage League upon 
this issue. We are in the main with it on almost all other con- 
tentions*. 


*B', : .-; 


f 


TYLER FOR THE ASSEMBLY 

Despite the fact that these columns have been freely open 
to all contenders for Assembly honors, Eagle readers know only 
W. O. Tyler in the premises. ' 

Mr. Tyler no- doubt, will represent this district with rare 
ability and will bring torth things worth while for tho 73rd 
district. 


ALL CROOKS LOOK ALIKE TO US 

A crooked preacher will have a harder time getting by the 
Searching Eye of the "Soaring Eagle" than any other sort of 
erook. In fact we will give them no quarter. The only way 
in which they c*an operate is to do so on the square. We martfh 
ahead on our campaign of pitiless publicity against them un- 
afraid. The interest and standing of the race must be main- 
tained at all hazards and in due time the crooked preacher 
will get in his proper place as a profligate desperado or bum. 
It matters not to us. 


JOE CRAIL \ 

It looks like a run away race for Congress in the 10th Dis- 
trict with that intrepid, energetic friend of all the people, the 
Hon. Joe Crail, as the winner. He has clearly won this fight 
by his matchless genius and truly we believe with Joe Crail in 
Congress the old 10th District will be represented as never be- 
fore. 


BILL TRAEGER FOR 


SI|ERI 


FF 


True to form the big, good natured Sheriff of Los Angeles 
County, William I. Treager, is making a record run and we 
miss our guess if he fails to go over in the primary. Yes we 
are all for big Bill Treager. 


TUESDAY'S PRIMARIES 

Tuesday night at 7:00 o'clock wijl bring to a close in some 
respects the most rem.irkable primary campaign ever heid 
within the confines of the State. It has been so from the fact 
that for the major offices to be chosen that the contender^ have 
not even had what is known as an organized effort behind 
them. . » 

To select a candidate in , the primary is personal, to the 
candidate or in other words, it is a contest between factions. In 
this contest the factions have failed to perform as of yore. They 
have fallen short on even getting out propaganda to state their 
case. ,; ;' 

This paper, as a rule, opens its colui6ft5.i f or the various 
candidates or factions to state their case io^just whatever ex- 
tent they desire measured by inches in advertising space. But 
in so far as the major offices are concerned there has not been 
any great demand for inches. Therefore being not in a position 
to donate ourselves no matter how much we would desire to 
do so, we had afc no time an opportunity to call a tune. If we 
called a tune we certainly would have had to pay the fiddler 
for doing so. Therefore the columns of this paper have been 
wide open to all to state their case without running into 
counter editorials. 

rj ^^^ gubernatorial contest, personally, we have well de- 
fied Ideas and pronounced opinion and regret very much the 
fact that for a newspaper man, the exigencies of the situation 
forbade our active participation via are newspaper route. 

Men and measures, however, should at all times receive 
the senous thought and consideration of the people and sum- 
ming up the accmplishments and what the various nominees 
stand for. It is.ea«y indeed to make up the mind as to the 
candidate of your choice. 

VI ^^*\** ^^® voting that makes good governments worth 
while, when citizens study men and measures for themselves 
and likewise form their choice without waiting to be told how 
to vote or following blindly the dictation of others.

Arthur S. B«nt, pre^disnt of tha 
Lot Angeles phaniber of Commerce, 
in a ^tepent isu^ yeetfrday, d|ew 
attention to' the rapid nu kt wj^eh 
thia^^ty's water and pbi^er reijuire* 
mental are increasihK anjl' strongly 
urge^ ^that the people aiithoribe the 
proptwed water and power bonds at 
the- August Slst primary election as 
the'only means of developing addition- 
al water and power resources and f .i-; 
cilities now needed by industries and 
homes in this area. 

Mr. Bent pointed out that both the 
Water Bureau and the Power Bureau 
are self-sustaining municipal utilities 
and will meet all interest and princi- 
pal charges on the bon<& from their 
own earnings, without any cost what- 
ever to the taxpayers. 

"Both the $10,000,00 water bond is- 
sue and the $11,000,000 , power bond 
issue have been approved and endors- 
ed by the Board of Directors of the 
Chamber of Commerce," stated Mr. 
Bent. "This endorsement was given 
after a careful and detailed study of 
the neeA of the City with regard to 
additional water and power supplie.s 
and facilitie.«!. 

"Investment of bind money, from 
time to time, to help finance addition- 
al water and power supplies as re- 
quired by the people of Los Angeles 
is e.-ssential to the progress and pros- 
perity of our city. Such investments 
of bond money are an orderly aid 
businesslike' procedure in expanding 
the City's water and power systems, 
and developing additional supplies of 
these necessities, as required. 

"The BoarM of Directors of the 
Chamber of Commerce, in endorshag 
the bond issues, feels, and 1 personal- 
ly am^rtvinced, that these bonds arfe 
necessary at this time; and the ^ork 
thus to be financed should be carried 
forward without' delay. 

"Our City is( in the business of sup- 
plying its cititens w\th water, power 
and light. If Los Angeles', increasing 
water, power and liight requirements 
are to be met, and this city's continued 
expansion and prosperity -thus, sup- 
ported, we must provide for tfiie dc?- 
velopment of this vital resources 
through the issuance of, bonds. 

"Our Water Bureau and our Pow- 
er Bureau are both splf-supporting 
utilities. Therefore, it will cost the 
taxpayers nothing to approve the pro- 
posed water and power bonds. _ All 
charges on these bonds, as provided 
in our new City Charter, are paid 
from earnings of the Water and Pow- 
er Bureaus, and not from taxes." 

Mr. Bent is a rtjember of Bent 
Brothers, Inc., a constmetlon firm 
which recently completed the building 
of the ExcheqOfer Da i rf'b i i thr Mweed 
River in California. This dam, one of 
the largest water storage structures 
ever built in this state, has created a 
reservoir capable of storing 280,000 
acre feet of water for the Merced Ir- 
rigation^ project.

The statement that Dr. Hudson

SULT to this leader of thp Women's

her absence from our community is

an in^lt to the intelligence of the 
leaders of the Women's Clubs of Cali-

the adtions of Dr. Hudson will have a

NEXT LIGHT-WEIGHT 

CHAMPION OF TJIE 

WORLD. BABY GANS. 

BEATS CALLAHAN IN 

THRILLING BATTLE 


Packed from pit to dome and with 
hundreds standin);:, Doyle's .Vernon 
Arena, scene of historic battles 
fouKht by the "Old Master", saw his 
name sake, Baby Joe Gans, uphold 
the famous name. 

Two colorful gladiators, both haild 
hitters, both ftame and fast, there 
- was never a better picked match than 
Mushy Callahan and Baby Joe Gans. 
But Callahan must have been over- 
estimated for Gans out-fought, out- 
generaled, and out-punched him to a 
well earned decision. Gans was first 
to enter the ring as thousands of fans 
white and colored cheered wildly. 
They were introduced, the Jfonp 
clanged and (he fight began. And 
boy', boy! what a scrap. Gans l^d 
landing two straight left.s and push- 
ing the fight.' Afver less than half a 
minute rapid mixing, Callahan shot 
a hard right to Gans' jaw. 

The blow whirled Gans across the 
ring and into the ropes. Groggy and 
badly shaken. Callahan tried his best 
to fin.<;h him but using his head, Gans 
saved himself by clinching and cov- 
ering till he could get his bearings, 
an<l partly recover. 

In the second he was more careful 
and Callahan more confident, carry- 
ing the fight to Gans, but Gans had 
recovered and held him even. 

In the third Mushy landed three 
hanl lefts t oGans' wind but the game 
little fighter took them all and more 
than out pointed him the round 
through. ^h 

In the fourth Gans came out like a 
whirl wind chasing Mushy all over 
the riftg knocking him half through 
the ropes and staggering, Gans hit- 
ting him with rights and lefts at will. 

From then on Gans piled up his big 
"lead till the referee raised his hand 
in the tenth, while the thousands of 
fans white and colored yelled, 
Ticrewued ,«nd went wild long after- 
ward. . *' 

Central Avenue was c^wder witlt 
well wishers late in the nijfht and all 
impromptu dinner and reception was 
held when Gans ate his supper at the 
Entertainers Cafe. 

Matchmaker "Wad" Wadhams will 
undoubtedly sign the battlers for a 
return match. It's a cinch thq house 
will be packed again. It was a whale 
of a scrap and there is no reason why 
the rematch shouldn't be even mote 
exciting. ^ 

Young McGovem thumped Manael 
Frayo in the special event, Joe 
Schlocker, punching hard and boxing 
beautifully, copped the semi-wind-up 
from Freddie Mack. Joe Bums beat 
Al Neff and Tommy Palacio ^as de- 
feated by Chappy Cruz. 


sion, bat also by every otl^er boxing 
authontjy in the Union, and there 
would ifOt be a place left where he 
could b6x in an orphan's milk fund. 
Any sd^ch dodging hlack champion 
would^have been ctilled "yellow" in so 
many different dialects that he would 
stand ai • disgrace to his entire race. 
Harrys Wills was not talkidg rashly 
when h«| questioned Denipsey's verac- 
ity. Fot example, Dempsey had the 
krazen lace to say that for five years 
he has been trying to get Harry into 
the ringj! We must at least compli- 
ment Dempsey's nerve: it certainly 
takes nerve to say pflblidy, boldly, 
and in big print somethj^g that every- 
body knows is untrue. Wills has been 
1;he one basing Dempsey, since the 
memory of the fun r\inneth not to the 
contrary^ 

A few questions will make that 
clear? Has the boxing commission 
evir had to .threaten Wills to try to 
make hiin contract with Dempsey T 
Has the commission ever hibd to order 
Wills to .set a date for a bout with 
Demp.sey? Has Wills ever forfeitetl 
$50,000 Just to keep from meeting 
Dempsey? Has any promoter ^ver 
had to .get an injunction against Wills 
to try t<^ make him live up to con- 
tract to j box Dempsey? Has Wills 
ever pretended, as Dempsey has pre- 
tended, that the lack of .financial in-' 
ducement stood in the way? WiMs 
has been iwilling to leave all the money 
to Dempsey, if only Jack would fight. 
If money were the jponsideration to 
Harry, believe us, he could get more 
money by agreeing to "lie down" to 
Dempsey, or to sell out in some way, 
.'.lan he could ever get by licking. 
Dempsey.

Mrs. George B. Matthews of this city 
have just endowed the local branch 
icolor^l) of the Young Jlen's Chris- 
tian Association with a fund of $100,- 
000, the income from which, about 
$6,000 a year, is to be used in work 
among the colored population. The 
gift is said to have been made on the 
condition that the association enlarge 
its building plans in anticipation of a 
100 per cent increase fat the colored 
population of this city. A year ago, 
Mr. JIatthews gav« $25,00« to, the 
building fund. 

The donor is president of the Ni- 
agara Milling Co., Buffalo was one 
of the. principal cities to increase its 
poplation as a result of the Negro ex- 
odus from the south, the workers be- 
ing attracted to the industries herel 
For a long time very little of a social 
service nature was done for them.

manufacturers are unUmiteii arid most 
attractire. But in Hpit« of the^act 
fact that (according to Professot' Pitt- 
man) the Liberians are moyt anxious 
to establish a preferential trade with 
the United States, most every otl^ 
white government of the world is .1^- 
resented and as yet very little tisoe 
with America has develope<l. Anl^- 
ican goMa in bfjCe vsrieyt are maCh 
in demanri and tnere. seems to be| Dp 
doQubt tbat the Liberian Republic or- 
fKially would welcome an expansi6n 
of tra'ic with this country with eB- 
pecial reference to California grewn 
and manufactured products. Not on- 

. ly does Liberia welcome American 
gods in competition with EoittDe'a 
products but she sfends in JielfS of 
the financial and moral encoiirase- 
ment and ftnancial and moral .(iacov- 
a^ement and support which h' closer 
relationshiu between (he two natiqps 
woukl'siirely develop. As is ihe case 
with any growing concern whether 
individual or govrenmental, capital is 
needed, is most welcome, and can be 
iissured of Protection. Professor Pitt- 
man has brouRht a challenge to the 
commercial enterprise of the United 
States to come and trade for and de- 
vel< p the great natural wealth of Li- 
l^triu under the auspices which are 
faforalde as any other ^o/l earth. 

jlii view of th eforetfoinfc trade re- 
sume it is especially creditable to 
.Afni-Americans in general and to the 
organizers and sponsors of the Liber- 
iiin Trar.sportation S. S. and Excel- 
sior Mining Company in particular 
thai th's company takes the initiative 
in i.-tablishine direct trade relations 
betwcfP Liberia and the United 
lt;itf.-. through the port of Los An- 
gered. Like pioneers in other fields 
wh<i have nothing to start with but a 
vision, a dream, and an unalterable 
purjiose, the above company has had 
difficulties to overcome and skeptic- 
ism to combat. But gradually the vis- 
ion has been vitalized into aAuality 
until now they have a modem steel 
freight and passenger ship under con-

shipiiing and trading business with

and market the great natural re-

sort of natural wealth and. topography 
of the Republic from the rich coastal 
agricultural belt where rubber, cof- 
fee, etc., can be produced in abund- 
ance, to the u|)lauds wTi^e mineral 
wealth abounds. 

great deal of imaginatiojiJ for one to 
estimate the pro.sperity that will ac- 
crue from the commerce mdicated and 
from the development of land which 
is so richly endowed writirthe natural 
products which the world catmot do 
withfiut. Nor is it difficult to imag- 
ine the added stimulous which wiH 
result to the manufacturers of this 
section of the United States and to the 
prestige of this port through the es- 
tablishment of a direct line to West 
Africa and Liberia. 

In addition to the direct develop- 
ment of its own holdings the company 
will do all in its power td encourage 
colpnizntion by all who desire -to live 
in a land of actual as well as theoret- 
ical free<lom and where '.Hie rewards 
of labor are so large andjcertain. Set- 
tlers and home builders jare most wel- 
come to Liberia. The Liberian gov- 
ernment not noly welcomes new set- 
tlers and builders but Prbfes.sor Pitt- 
man is authority for the statement 
that as good agricultural land as 
there is in the whole continent of 
Africa may bie had in fee ownership 
for a comparatively trifling cost and 
for p rascally any purpose, from the 
Wjirm ■a.iital lands where tropi(;al 
pro<luctHcan be grown in abundance 
, to the cool and rolling uplands where 
liT6?tock thrive in rich and unlim- 

; iterl pasturage. Nor are the oppor- 
- tunities limited to those who wish to 
engage in agriculture. Monrovia, the 
qapitol, is destine<l to become a thriv- 
inf- and modem city under the stimu- 
k)Us of the country's new commercial 
Itfe; the villa^g thriving towns and 
lArt.'s. There are opportunities for all 
the trades and professions that per- 
tain to such a development of urban 
life. The Lil)erian Transportation S. 
S. and E.xcelsicr Mining Company will 
most heartily co-operate with htose

new homes, and comparatively low

Who is now in jail charged with mur- 
der. It is said that McCoy, while un- 
der the influence of liquor went to the 
home of his wife, Rhoda McCoy, who 
had been sieparated from him for the 
past six months' and demanded her 
return.. On refusal he struck her with 
his fist. Her ^reams brought Tiirner 
to her 'Assistance, who shot UjcCoy 
four times. Turner, claims self-de- 
fense, as it is said McCoy made 'a

Ever since Adam •&<} Eve had 

a- wonderful romance, i^liasiMea aaid, 
that man shall not live in iM«e« wit^ 
a woe-finjin, or without a wo»-imdl 
So, according to that, poor itian is 
in a ticklish position. Man, Veinf; the 
^ stronger of the two, is supiiosed to be 
wotnan's master; but it brings a laugh 
when you thuik of him as such, ifhe 
average marked man in Los Angeles, 
hf in many cases afraid to speaV above 
a whisper, although he is a paat mas- 
ter at talking at the big gat& 

Woman has gradually cpme to the 
front in a most 'orccful way, ayer- 
cising her rights with a rolUng pin 
phyaicitlly, and by castinir her vote 
politically, the latter ca;i best be tes- 
tified to by talking to soQie poor, 
<lown-trodi!en man, who has sought a 
divorce. When he gets tifirough sing- 
ing the blues to you, there will' be no 
ilcFubt left in vour mind as to her 
power, with the biggest Tmajority of 
tlomestic court judges. Why, ^udge 
Summerfield will almost hang you on 
a woman's word, so what chance have 
you got. You might a.s well step right 
out and take one of the innocent tkingai 
for life, and try to do as she says, or 
curl up and die. The only man who 
have any reasonable amount of suc- 
cess in securing a divorce after they 
are crtice hooked, are the ones who 
live in Hollywood, where they, marry 
today and get a divorce tomorrow. 
However, there arc a few left who 
hpve not succumbed to the pre-emi- 
nence of woman. They stand in a 
teinfl, as the rock of Gibralta, boldly 
in defiance of the feminine sex, with 
good jobs, and fair incomes, they go 
unmolested in their care-fr«e way, 
no one to tell them they must stay 
home, and no one \0 bounce a rolling 
pin off their heads. But it has been 
.said that even a rock can be worn 
down by the constant drioping of 
water, and though they appear hacd 
boiled and unconcerned, SOME DAY

Little Rock, Ark., Aug. 24.— In or- 
der to cheat the electric chair, Thomas 
Stribbling, 6^,' condemned to die for 
the alleged murder of a man last year, 
"went on a 66-day hunger strike which 
ended in his death at the penitentiary 
Wednesday afternoon. 

Stribbling had told jail officials that 
he would jwver die in the chair, and 
had deeeived guards who brought him 
food by ihtewing it in a sewer. '. Two 
weeks ago-^ became so ill that he 
was taken to the prison infirmary. 
There he confessed his fasting, but it 
was too late for him to be saved. The 
warden of the prison declared that 
Stribbling's.is the first instance of a

the public's co-operation was nothing 
near a 100 tJer cent this time, but we 
expect it to be much better next time. 
The band shall immediately begin pre- 
paring for a much better trip for next 
summer. We shall do our best to in- 
duce the public to co-operate with us 
in order to make our plan a success. 
Owing to the fact that we had a day's

(For the Associated Hegto Press) 
. On the night of August 6th, we went 
to look in on ""The Fifth Convention of 
the Negro Peoples of the World" in 
Liberty Hall, pi» 138th street, .New 
York City. And we went on the in'vi- 
tation of the officers of the Conven- 
tion, wh<> also urged us to address the 
assembly. It had been about four 
years since we had been in Liberty 
Hall, and ' at that time we had been 
forbidden even to take notes in the 
plaice. When we had taken out our 
pencil and notebook and begu)v to take 
down some of the ;triily remarkable 
lagic being buried down fropi 
the platform by Garvey and otheiif, 
half a dozen soldiers of the, "African 
Legion" had rushed to our' seat in 
battle formation and shouted: "You 
are not allowed to write in t^is hall!" 
It was the first time 'we had' ever been 
forbidden to take notes at a public 
lecture. 

It is nioticonble that in the present 
con'v'oniaon tbe:e is no autocracy and 
no bnli^g control from the platform 
— «nd eo naeqa e ntl y ther»is aaeM-hoiiv 
est exprc'sion from the fioorl We ob- 
served tkat some of the more active 
thinkers who quit in disguM years 
ag;o, were now back among tithe dele-' 
gates. There were men 'like Lpvatt- 
Fort-Whiteman, of the Negro Labor 
Congress, and local intelledtuals like 
Edgar Gray, Richard B! Moore and 
Wm. H. Ferris. The majiMity of the 
delegates, it seems, .repraaent the 
more active minds among Vte labor- 
ing class, of Negroes, I 

The subject for the 'evening was the 
industrial and economic advancement 
of the Negro nvce, and all |were dis-' 
cussing the organisation of ^egro la- 
boy. Will yoB believe it? f .1 spent 
one whole evening in Liberty Hall and 
never heatd one bit of hot air about 
AMca! :They 'were discussing the

EDITORIAL FORE AND 
AFTER THOUGHT 


By C. A. B. 

Mrs. Hicks of the Parent 
Teachers Association, gave a 
most interesting personal 
glimpse of the segregation 
scheme as it is being worked 
out in the Public School Sys- 
tem of this city, last Sunday 
afternoon at Eagle Kail. 


Miss Vivian Temple, in the 
creation and > presentation of 
the drama, "Easy Money", 
brought to light the fact that 
the average young Negro was 
not asleep as to his real posi- 
tio|i as to citizenship. In strik- 
ing contrast she painted two 
pictures, one of Hope ajl^.thf 
'otli^ discouragement. 

Hope showed that the y(>un j 
Negro was willing to even %gHi 
for the high ideals of citizen- 
ship, while Discouragement, 
on the other hand, easily ex 
plained that the way of vice 
was the only avenue not 
fraught with prejudice open to 
him. In other words th eplot 
was a plea for justice^ 

Last Friday evening, Atty. 
Willis O. Tyler appeared be- 
fore the Republican Studv 
Club headed by Mrs. Clara C. 
Hulbert in one of the most re- 
markable political speches in 
behalf of his own candidacy 
that it has ever been our privi- 
lege to listen to. 

In fact the Republican Study 
Club is one of the most alive 
orgnnizations in the city, and is 
destineci to do a great work for 
political uplift in this communi- 
ty.. 

A few weeks ago Los Ange- 
les had a distinguished visitor, 
Miss Elizabeth Carter of New 
Bedford, Mass. 


Miss Carter is one of the 
most resnected school teachers 
of New Bedford where she has 
taught for more than twenty 
years. She is one of the lirst 
and best presidents that the 
National Association of Color- 
ed Women's Glubs has ever 
had, a quiet, but conscientious 
civic worker, and- a humanita- 
rian of first 'rank in her own 
citv and state. 

Mi.ss Carter w?s accompa- 
nied to the Pacific Coast by 
Mrs. Hattie Taylor Jones of 
Boston, and Miss Alberta Dun- 
bar of Providence, R. I. 


BUILDING A RACE 


The Board of Directors throuifh the 
charitably inclined have undertaken 
the responsibility of father and moth- 
er for the dependent orphans of the 
Nearro race. A responsibility that we 
regard as an opportunity. To provide 
a home for those little ones who, by 
the providence of God, have been de- 
prived of the one which God gave them 
is to carry out the work of the Cre- 
ator who gave them existence. 

"making life 

We are in a life-nilking business, 
we provide a home for the purpose of 
bringing to useful futurity the lives 
God has made and which He has plac- 
ed in our charge. 

MORE THAN A COMMISSARY 

A home . is more than a commis.><- 
ary; its table more than a messboard; 
its wardrobes .more than lockers, 
■^hese things exist for a definite pur- 
uone, and are auxiliaries of the home. 
iSitsical necessities must be met in 
order that the ^hit^ar. Wrt^THf 4*>« 
life may be supblied. Tlw^need «f tfae 
orphan child is more than t^t,of food 
and clothing. The life is more th*n 
meat.^nd the body than raiment. ^ . 

INSTITUTION ESSENTIAL 

The care of the orphan as the ward 
nf a sane civiKzation, distinctly Chris- 
tian, capnot be provi^led for in any 
other way than in an in.stitution which 
supplies the home atmosphere and en- 
vironment in which the young life can 
be trained op in the nurture and ad- 
monition of the Lord. 

NOT AN ALMSHOUSE 

Hence the Home is an institution 
rather than an almshouse. The State 
educates its citizSrtS because it will 
make them better citizens, legs liable 
to become wards on its bounties and 
more apt to become contributors to 
wealth. The Orphan's Home is or 
should be a^ part of our general b]^- 
tem of education and shouhl De so re- 
garded. It differs from other ^ools 
only in thati an entire support is af- 
forded the pupils; it is not different 
from them in the underlying purposes 
for which it exists. The proc^uits of 
the Home will repay the donors for the 
contributions they make in its sup- 
port. 

GREATEST INVESTMENT 

WJiat a paying investment to put 
money into huma^n lives. To get re- 
sults even in one case out of ten 
would be incomparable returns. A 
life of usefulness is beyond compari- 
son in value to money of any amount, 
and yet in onr prphanage work at 
St. John, it is easy to {nake a relative- 
ly small amount of money count in 
the training of a life for its highe.st 
usefulness. We have just begun the 
work of educating orphan chitdhcn. 
The equipment and plant are fat too 
small and inadequate for the present 
needs, and the needs theitiselves should 
be multiplied and more imperative.

APPRECIATION 


We want to express our higheiit ap- 
preciation for the thousands of ex- 
pressions of endorsements for our e.K- 
pose of the recent situation in. which, 
the brazen exploitation of a race was 
handled in no mincing words in the 
columns of this paper. We desire to 
state that in the future as we iuive in 
the past w6 shall be on the watch tow- 
er looking out at all times and will 
surely do our utmost to circumvent 
those who would despoil us. 

For every movement worth y;h\\e 
for public weal, with sincere devotion 
we vrill ever do our part for its ad- 
vancement ad success. With nialice 
toward none and charity for all we 
will ever maintain the posiiion which 
we have assumed. 

We realize that we have the un- 
it tinted support of i-ace loving and law 
a^^iding citizens. We depreciate the 
very Wea of the garbeled newi-paper 
regorts given in the Chicago Defend- 
er, in which it was heralded throu<rh-. 
out the country that the editor of this 
paj)er was seriously injured, beaten i^

-thing was further from the truth, for 
we have never been even stiruck liy 
our assailant. We were-^a»lted on 
the public streets of the city, with 
lang:uage unpritable, our life' threat- 
ened aYid by the .said preacher L. B. 
Brown trying his be.st ^o do ua bodily 
injury with his finger in our mouth 
and inflicting a slight injury to oar 
eye, which for a day or so was blood 
shot thereafter. 

Even one of our local contempora- 
ries in defiance of all ethics of journ- 
alism of friendly newspapers, wrote 
that we had a black eye, were beaten 
up and followed with a whole lot of 
Jiog wash given them by our assail- 
ant without at least asking for our 
version of the same. 

Thirty years of journalism has yet 
found us in a position where our col- 
umn's could not be used against anv 
individual who was contending for r 
gre^t moral principle at the behest o-r 
anybody — no matter how barren the 
flour sack or how short the pay roll. 

To newspaper men our position 
would always be, "brother you have 
got to show me."

The Virginia Press De- 
nowces Wythe Coun- 
ty Lynching 

Althougti there is little prospect of 
anything but a superficial investiga- 
tion of the recent lynching in Wythe 
County, Virginia, in which the rabb 
stormed the jajl and brutally murder- 
ed an iroprisonied man, newspape^ra if 
the State have been emphatic fii their 
denunciation of tte outrage. 

The N. A .A. C* P. has received 
clippings- from a number of tiie lead- 
ing newspapers in which strong rtatC- 
ments are made. The Richmoml f^ews 
Leader in an. editorial headed V "^ 
Dark Disgrace to Virginia," declar«d: 

"A drunken mob «f saraftes on 
. a South Sea Island could not hf^i, \ 
been more' 'brutaL Rossian 'r^' j

religious MwjilbiO/o^-; would hav^ j 
hesitated at lia<h ^meflj^. ..pone 
in the name of 'wWtar jrtiprem-: 

monwealth that has boasted the 
pat'ent honesty of its Justice.** 
The Richmond Ttmes-IMspatch, head^ 
ing its editorial "Law and Order Oat- 
raged," writes: • 

"In permitting — or in failing to 
prevent tills lawless execution of i 
a prisoner— Wytheville has open- 
ly outraged law and order and it 
has betrayed its lack of confid«inte ^ 
in its duly constituted conrtg. •■ 
That is the real pity of this lat- 
est lynching, the real danijer ii»; 
-such mob nnirders. It is an irt- . 
tack upon the courts ^hich in 
.Virginia is-, not justified." 
Still another editorial admonishes thiH, 
white citizens of Wytheville not 4o 
bemoan the bad advertising given to" 
their town but .to set themselves reso- 
lutely to discovering and panishinr 
the Ivnchers. ' The editorial goes on; 
"Reports from WvthevUle are , 
to the effect that neither the town : 
or county seems to be particulatly 
perturbed over the outrage i^n 
IftW and justice of which a mob ' 
of its citizens is guilty. If those 
reports be true then Wytheville 
will not be able to, re-establish 
itself in the esteem of law-abid- 
ing people by oleading the injus- 
tice of ite publ'city. ....... "

"BLACK PANTHER" IS 


^^.±;: 



(By A. N. P.) 

Niashville, Tenn., Aeg. 29.— Deatii 
was' meted out to Charles Barr, the 
so-called "black panGher" criininal 
Friday morning, for the alleged mur- 
der; of three white persons in 1921. 
Bvr's battle for his Kfe was fought 
through all the courts of the state. He 
went to the electric chair without a 
whimper. Bsrr's habit,, according to 
police, was to attack . White "petting 
parties" , on lonely roads at midnight. 
In many cases he was. said to} h^^e 
robbed them, , and in others, .to have 
murdered one or the other of the par- 
ties. Three years after the crimes 
had been committed, Barr was traded 
through a ring which had; been stolen 
from one .of his victims and pawned 
by Barr's wife. He confessed but lal^r 
repudii^ied h's confession. Barr's fa- 
ther was a minister.
