A November Prophecy
• • •
Now that the big shows art
over and we know who's who and
what's what we ean begin, with
some measure of safety to defin
itely forecast what will happen
next November.
« • •
For this specific purpose, for
«put- soro* time. my files, have
been accumulating pertinent pol
itical data, from every state in
the uniou, and 1 now predict that
nothing short of a miracle will
keep the democrats out of the
White house after the 4th day of
next March.
• • •
Inasmuch as 1 have no political
prestige to maintain I can even
go ao far as to specifically analyze
the stutus of my conclusions as
they exist at the present writing,
knowing well that my analysis
will be hotly disagreed with.
• • •
Present conditions lead me to
believe that of the 531 electoral
votes, 2S7 ean now be placed in
the democratic column, made up
as follows: Alabama. Arkansas,
Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Ken
tucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mas
sachusetts, Mississippi, Missouri,
Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico,
Now Y.'fW North iarohna. Ok la
hoina. South t'aroliua, Tennessee,
Texas and Virginia.
I concede to the republicans.
141 electoral vote*, including the
states of Aritona. Colorado, l>el
aware, Indiana, Iowa, -Maine,
Minnesota, New Hampshire, Ore
got-, Pennsylvania, South Oakota,
I tah, Vermont, Washington, Wi\
cousin and Wyoming, And r\en
in these stales there are factions
in four of them that might poa
aihly align themselves with inter
eats other than the republican*.
• * •
The remaining HW electoral
votes I place in the doubtful col
umu because of certain events vet
to occur, at this writing, which in
eludes the stales of Connecticut,
California. Idaho. Kansas, Mich
igan. Montana \ aska North
Ihkata, Ohio, Rhode Island and
West Virginia.
• • •
Kveu if the republicans were
assured of the doubtful states, in
'keeping \ w'ith mv analysis they
Ooubt only hare 244 eleetoral rot
's against 2>7 for the democrats
-and granting a reasonable per
cent of errors in my analy sis it is
--%fe to predict that after the “sur
prise-/' have been totaled up, the
democrats will still have the ma
jority electoral vote.
• • •
In making this prediction, I am
no’ inferring that the country will
he lettered any hy the change of
federal administration. Further
»I believe, that if the now agitated
‘dry" third party should become
a tvality that the democrats would
be the ones to benefit from it.
• • •
For the Negro, it is interesting
to note that in c«*h of the north
ern states which I have classified
in the democratic column, that the
Negro ;s intensely active in both
parties and that before the race
l is ©\cr much attention will be
concent rates! upon winning the
Nojro Vi • W .lever vour own
opimom, however, von cannot
prove that I am wrong until after
next November and maybe you
will have forgotten my prediction

Robesons Says, “I’m Scrry,
But I Guess ft Had To Be”
TN» Philosophic Robesons
KxmTly one week after Rutgers
diversity Iwin conferred upon Paul
Robeson the honorary degree of
Master of Arts a statement was
made public by his wife, Mrs. Kits
amla Goode Robeson, who is living
in Koudon, Kngland, that she had
instituted proceedings for divorce,
naming a white Knglishwomau as
co-respondent, Word that then
had been nn estrangement he
tween the noted singer and his
biographer did not come as a dis
tinet shook to the couple's friends
and acquaintances on this side of
the \t Untie, for rumors have per
listed for more than a year that
their marital relations were badly
Mrs Rnhcsuit attributes then
domestic troubles to an unnamed
principal In the triangle who is
expected tn marry the defendant
When he is free, She Is quoted
as saying to representative* ol
the press,
' rani and I always have been
happy, fits infidelity shocked
me at filial, but then t realised
tt was a normal tendency and t
did not allow it to interfere
with onr love, Now things ate
different because Paul has oth
or plans."
When interviewed at the fas
inn Theatre where he is making
a tug hit singing "OP Man Rfv-j
or" and is the most popular mem
ber of the Show float Company, |
Robeson is quoted as having inti
mated his intention of marrying
an English society woman in the
event Mrs. Robeson gets a divorce,
It has not been much of a $e
cret abroad. When I was in
London last we were seen to
gethcr much of the time and
made no bones of our attach
ment. I can’t mention her
namo now as I don’t know if
she still wants me. I have been
expecting this. I am sorry but
I guess it had to be. I have
made my plans well in advance.
I desire above all things to
maintain my personal dignity.
If this stirs up race prejudice
I am prepared to leave the
country forever. I am study

French and will soon be quali

T had to go there to find out
whether I was really an artist
or not,"
It would seem that Mr Kahesou
had to go abroad also to find
whether he was really in love
with his wife or not. Hut as he
says, philosophically, "I guess it
had to ha. “ Until her husband’*
obvious desertion Mrs, Rohesou
also assumed the role of a philos
opher, “realising his infidelity
win a normal tendency and reins

their love.” So while profund

its sensational aspects the public
might as well view it philosophic

one of those things. 1
