THAT EVIL MONSTER
Nothing is so pitiful as to see an individual blinded
bv the evils of jealousy. It is like a deadly weapon con
u ithin. We must make this discovery that jeal
ousy is a twin sister of ignorance, yet our own ignorance
st thing for us to discover. We spend a lile
tim ; other fellows’ ignorance, while we
might be mending our own.
It is natural, you expect some things from some
pe<. we are prone to follow or look to for
leadership. In this capacity of leadership we at least ex
pect intelligent guidance. .
Incidentally one of the most regrettable attairs
made . Iv appearance in our community a few weeks
ago as to the result of a jealous and ignorant leader.
Anv man, whether he be white or black, who seeks
po\ leering, cursing, and double crossing oth
ers is the victim of ignorance. The saddest part of all is
that we have who are ready to follow and if
necessarv die for a dumb leader, who would sell his birth
right for publicity and power.
to wake up? Cant you see
that behind the monsters, j< isy and ignorance, lies
prejudice? Are you blinded by your own ignorance?
Unfortunately we are not all educated, but there
is no law against having common sense.

Jacbo—The Partial Father

Text: And Jacob their father said
unto them. Me have ye bereaved of
my children: Joseph is not, and Sim
eon is not, and ye will take Benjam.
in away: all these things are against
Like Isaac, his own father, Jacob
had a favorite child, and he was fool,
ishly open in his preferential ex
pressions. This son was not diplo
matic, or whatever they might have
called it then, and was understood to
be boasting of his superiority over
Jacob mourned Joseph as dead, and
he gave vent to his feelings in these
pathetic words, “Joseph is not, and
ye will take Benjamin away: all these
things are against me.” And this
injustice was productive of enmity,
jealousy and hatred toward him. And
as long as human nature remains the
same, such causes will produce like
We may never understand this mat
ter of a father’s favoritism in loving
one child more than another, and yet
nothing is more manifestly true But
no father is justifiable in assuming
such an attitude as did Jacob toward
his own young, helpless, innocent son.
FUGITIVES OF THE PEARL”
by John H. Paynter
(701 51st St., N. E. Washington DC.)
* * *
Up until the time the author, ®ohn
H. Paynter, sent me a copy of his
book, “Fugitives of the Pearl”, I had
never possessed any of the books put
out by the Associated Publishers,
Inc., of Washington, D, C. Unfort
unately, I was never even able to get
a reply to any of my letters to the
above publishers, they being one of
the few race firms that have stead,
fastly refused to cooperate with me
in my humble efforts.
* * *
Apparently, the author is now dis
tributing his own books, and I under
stand he had quite a few published,
the latest one being “Fugitives of
the Pearl”. This books is a history
of the Edmonson family during the
days of slavery and is so written as
to make it more thrilling than a novel
with its moments of deep tragedy,
stirring life drama and bits of hap
* • •
Throughout, it is a story of human
beings, intelligent and strong, but
dark, seeking freedom from a condi
tion into which they were born. The
book derives its name from an un_
successful attempt of seventy-seven
slaves attempting an escape on the
steamer “Pearl". The attempt was
frustrated because of the treachery
and jealousy of another race man.
* * *
The scene of action for the most
part is laid right in and around the
District of Columbia and the book
thoroughly describes how slavery
thrived right at the nation's capitol.
The author’s relationship to the char,
acters in the book makes the story
no less interesting,

PRISONS AND PRISONERS
by Clifford C. Mitchell.
• * *
For nearly six months now I have
been conducting this weekly “Prisons
and Prisoners” column for our School
News and I have accepted it as a
high compliment that at no time has
my “copy” been “out” or otherwise
tampered with, barring an occasion
al typographical error now and then,
and with one or two exceptions I have
always been free to choose my own
subjects: on the other occasions I
merely expresed my own viewpoints
or observations on some specific
theme that wai pertinent at the mo
Some weeks ago Thomas decorated
this page with a sketch showing his
conception of how I looked. A copy
of that particular column was sent
"to aH the papers, in all parts od^the
country, that use other writings of
mine Since then I have been beseig
ed with inquiries and requests concern
ing both thi§ column and School
* I do not know what have been the
experiences of the other contributors,
or the sentiments expressed by rela_
1 ttves or friends to the individual in
mates of Jackson Prison but if the
letters and editorial messages that
I have been receiving are indicative
of the others then I would say that
the body owe a vote of thanks to
McNabb for his tireless ingenuity in
creating and pitting across such a
wonderful medium as School News
,for crea^jng and maintaining good_
will among influential members of
society and the inmates as a whole.
In time, this medium can become
and undoubtedly ■will become, a pow
erful influence in bringing to light a
new phase on conditions peculiarly
attendant on those convicted of
crime and their subsequent effects.
It certainly should not appear in
congruous that the soealled crimin
als could contribute ideas towards
solving the conditions that made
It is not an uncommon occurrence
in any prison to see visitors making
a tour of inspection through the pris_
on only to learn later that such a
tour qualified the visitors to serve as
experts on penology or to make them
peculiarly fit to sit in judgement on
others. We will stretch a point and
say that maybe a very keen observa
tion enables them to so qualify but
we must admit that those who have
served years in prison are also quali_
Being qualified, however, but with
no means of giving testimony is of
little consequence and that is just
where School News may, some day,
fill an important role. Just imagine
the benefits that could accrue with a
weekly department in this medium in
which one page would-be used to furn
ish a “case history” of some prisoner
and his conclusions or suggestions?
If necessary, these weekly subjects
could be written without any identi
fying name or number but so keyed
thar each case could be checked and
analyzed. All personalities would be
lost and the facts only would become
important. In time these cases would
attract and come to the attention of
those who would become personally
interested and in a spirit of fairness
and justice would make pertinent
investigations and if the facts were
substantiated then School News
would have found a new .friend for
some “forgotten” man.
Personally, I hope I have discarded
all selfishness^ I have learned to ap
preciate opportunities and if any
thing that I can write will help to
create opportunities for the other
prisoners then I am only passing on
to others a part of that kindness
which I am constantly receiving as
the result of contact through School
News and other mediums.
MARRIAGE ON THE PHYSICAL
by R# A. Adams
(The Literary Service Bureau)
The many marital wrecks are due
to the fact that most marriages are
purely on a physical plane. Physic
al beauty of form and face, physical
grace of carriage, a caressing voice,
a bewitching smile, all are attractive
physical elements. However, chiefest
and most dangerous of the physical
elements are those which make sex
appeal, awaken sex desire, and incite
to sex union.
But the physical is not permanent.
Illness, accidents, deep sorrow and old
age will mar the most beautiful face
and change the most symmetrical
form. Constant association will tend
to make physical beauty less prom
inent and less appealing. The phys
ical in sex will be sated and perhaps
glutted, making commonplace what
once seemed irresistably attractive; or
perhaps it will end in repulsiveness.
In fact; the physical alone is a tie
that will not bind.
When have come the fading of fac
ial beauty, emaciation of physical
form, and satiety or exhaustion of
sex element, unless there are between
a man and a woman stronger ties
than these, it wil mean the end of
happiness. Unless there shall exist
the higher qualities of heart and soul
to appeal and bind, there will be
Jacob loved Rachel, when first he
saw ,her and loved her to the end. But
he saw more than her outward beauty
He discerned those inner qualities
which held his love till death. So
it ever has been; so it ever will be.
by A. B. Mann
(The Literary Service Bureau)
Very disagreeable is the habit des_,
cribed as “snapping”, which-means
speaking harshly, giving curt and un
couth answers, and general unkind
ness and discourtesy in speech. As
a general thing, these are accom
panied with and characterterized byi
shrill tones and rising inflection by
which the sharpness is accentuated
“I’m sorry, I was worried.” “Well
I was sick and felt so bad;” “I don’t
know what made me do it, but I was
just out of sorts;” “This is just on©
of my bad days.” These ^ire some of
the excuses made by those who lose
control and "become snapping turtles,
to the (iispleasure, discomfort and dis
gust of those who are their victims.
Cultivating such a spirit is a ser
iously bad habit. Constant snapping
will snap the ties of friendship, and
persisted in, will ultimately snap the
"bonds of love. For it will take a very
■strong love to survive constant fits of
ill temper and their manifestation in
inexcusable $najrping. , ,
