On previous occasions, this writer
was accustomed to using his admit
tance card to the United States Senate
Chamber in Washington at the open
ing of Congress; had he been there
this year he would have rushed over
to either Senator Norris’s or Senator
Royal S. Copeland’s office to have his
admission card to the 72nd Congress
exchanged for one for the 73rd Con
gress. Then, he would have hurried
over to the House of Representatives
and up in the gallery-stand; and with
an eagerness out of the ordinary, he
would have heard these words from
the lips of Speaker Gamer, namely:
“Two.thirds not having voted, the
resolution is lost.” once the count was
completed. I’m telling you its mighty
sad for us this year because every,
bodv wished that Old Santa Clavjs
would bring us BEER for Xmas.
The House rejected the Gamer reso
lution for prohibition repeal Monday,
the votes being 271 for repeal to 144
against. A two-thirds majority vote
was necessary for approval of the res
olution and, the necessary margin not
having been delivered, the proposal
was turned down. A change of six
votes would have resulted in the re
peal amendment’s adoption.
One of the reasons that the resolu.
tion was rejected was that many
“Lame Ducks” Congressmen, defeated
for re-election, opposed the resolution.
Congressman Howard Malcolm
Baldrige and Congressman Malcolm
Howard of this fair State of Nebras
ka were among those who had the
courage of their convictions to vote
for the repeal amendment.
No Political Party Can Cure Our
Our troubles, politically, like, most
of our troubles, are inwardly and not
outwardly-internally and not extern
ally. The Negro has been bled to
death by his own selfish and Venal
political “would-be.leaders”. No po
litical party can cure our wounds.
Groups or races make their own ad
vantages in this country; but these
advantages do not make a group or
Race in America.
In order to be taken seriously and
be sought after as a really important
intiger in the body politic of this na
tion, and to be considered as a pow
er not only at election time but be
tween elections, we must produce a
new type of courageous political
leadership because those who have led
the race through all these years have
not established a fitting neucleus for
building genuine and undiluted pa.

The author, Geoffrey Barnes, who,
apparently, gained some renown as
the writer of “Party Husband” (which
I have not read) endeavors, in “Dark

a mixed love affair between Alan
North, a writer with an inherited in

Aline has a rival for the affections
of Alan in the person of Patricia
(Peter) Brent, an artist who also en
joys an inherited income. Of course,
Peter is white, beautiful and ador

"him bad. In fact she literally throws
herself upon Alan on any terms that
Alan may desire but no, Alan, doesn’t
want Peter in that way and neither
does he want to marry.
