Senator Kingfish’
Cont. fro™ p. 1
Turner the senator touched him and
at the same time whispered another
of ha insulting terms in his ears.
And that was too bad for the sena
tor. In less time than it took to rec
ord what had happened. Huey was
on the floor, his eye was the color of
Turner's first and the musician was
nursing bruised knuckles.
Hrtreau in Disorder
That’s ail there was to it. As a
matter of fact there wasn’t time for
aay more, m the jjpod senator, long

of protecting his orbits, had beaten a
hasty and unceremonious retreat. So j
rapid was his retreat that he didn’t

(> rrt a stst\nent out of the senator
imaelf, but that big man from the
South was so swift of foot that he
rendered himself invisible to the eye.
“Here he is!” somebody cried. And
before the reporters could reach the
spot the cry was changed to “There
he goes!” la be meantime Mr Turn
er had quietly proceeded with the
party and had as quietly departed for
his home in Harlem. Those who knew
what had happened kept quiet about

gang beat him. There was a number
so great that he couldn’t count them.
“Maybe it was the number that John
saw,” one veteran whispered to an
other. “I think he had better see a
doctor,” the other veteran answered.
And after telling his story (which
nobody believed) the senator pro
ceeded to say what he thought of
newspapers and reporters. “We
chased the polecats out of Louisiana,”
he said, “and they came up here and
became reporters.” The implication
being here that it .was a reporter
who was responsible for his brown
skinned optic.
Vets Repudiate Speech
Following his Milwaukee speech,
which to the credit of the veterans
they hastened to disown and apolo
gize for, he collected his baggage,
left the hotel (without paying his
hill), sneaked into Chicago and just
as quietly sneaked out again.
But up here in New York the talk
goes merrily on. The white press is
still looking for the man who black
ed Huey Long’s eye—or is pretending
to ae looking for him. Huey, it is stat
ed, has offered a reward for the name
of the man who smote him — if said
man will present himself in Louis
iana. And the Sand Point Bath club
has let it be known that from hence
forth and forever the blustering
senator from Louisiana will be per
sona non grata at that club. In other
words he will always find the latch
string on the inside to him and the
key in the lock. Still more simply
put. he never be a guest there again.
Another interesting sidelight on
Huey's fistic activites came to light
Tuesday also when New Orleans re- ■
porters gave out the fact that Huey
has been taking boxing lessons at the \
New Orleans Athletic club for the
past six weeks. Apparently he was
in training for his big bout, which
ended with one blow and one black
eye, with Huey Long on the receiving
end of both.
n also was divulged this week that
Tanner’s conques over Huey was
about the eighth bout in which he
has engaged and i„ which he came
out second best. There is one story
about * 70 year old exgovernor forc
ing the “Kingfish” to turn on the air
in a New Orleans hotel a few years
*go. Another man, a Shreveport law
yer, also landed a safe one on the
senator's eye, after which Brother
Long staged a one man race. In his
time Huey is said to have challenged
the worst and the best of them, but
due to the fact that it always takes
two to make a fight, and Huey just
couldn’t make his feet remain still
long enough to return a blow, usual
ly managed to escape with just one
blow to his credit—or should one say
Dallas Tanner is a hero in New
-rork. Although usually quiet, unas
suming, he has been forced to retire
from the admiring gaze of his friends
in Harlem. And the sentiment among
them is that since they couldn’t have
been there to strike the blow they
regret only that thag were not there
to see it.
Black-Eyed Huey Long
Poor Huey (pronounced “Hooey”)
Long, United States senator from
Louisiana by the grace of the Unit
ed States Constitution and the dumb
ness of the Louisiana electorate, is
now nursing a black eye. He re
this dark adornment some time Sat
urday night when he allowed his left
orb to collide violently with the busi
ness end of a man's fist. And that’s
what you may call talking to Huey
in Huey's language.
But how did Huey get that black
eye? After all, you know quite well
that he was born with two white ones
—at least that’s what he thinks. And
you know further that Senator Craw
fish Long would not willingly adept a
shade for his eye which suggests a
race he so despises. According to the
story going the rounds, he stopped
over in New York at the exclusive
Sand Point Bath club just to have a
bath. Stories differ as to just what
happened. In fact, we do not know
whether the “Crawfish” really had a
b&th at all before the discoloration
* * *
took place.
It appeared that the great “white

hopeless” had forgotten the bath at
tendants’ right names and proceeded
to call them by such names as were
familiar to his vocabulary in his na
tive state. Hooey further mistook
service for servility and thereby
hangs the tale.. The “white hopeless”
started out with a blaster and ended
up with a blister. The blister made
its appearance in the form of a
healthy hickey on the side of his
head in the vicinity of one of his
optics. After the cultured and re
fined senator had been untangled
from the fist of a guest whom he had
mistaken for one of the bath attend
ants, it was discovered that Huey
was not as good a fighter as he was
a talker. It was also discovered that
while he could give it he just couldn’t
take it.
* * *
The lacing which took place (in the
vicinity of his eye) made Huey
doubly sore, especally since the eye1
immediately took on the complexion
of the fist that it had encountered, i
When the senator had been lifted
from the floor, it was for a moment
difficult to tell to just which race he
belonged. Amid the confusion some
one yelled “Fire," as a result of
which both a physician and the fire
department responded. The pulmotor
was not necessary, however, for mak
ing a be* line for the nearest exit.
For several hours pandemonium
reigned. Neither police nor press
could locate Huey. It seemed that the
impact of the blow had so disturbed
his mental equilibrium, to say noth
ing of his physical equilibrium, that
for several hours he continued to run
around in circles. 1^ finally, in one of
his lucid moments, struck the Mohawk
trail and ended up in Milwaukee
where he had heard the rumors of u
gathering of veterans including a
number of natives who speak his lan
From this apparent point of van
tage, the senator began to issue
statements, purporting to explain to
his constituents in Louisiana, espe
cially and to the nation in general,
that there was no overt act on his
part to turn black—that it was rath
er a case of bad judgment in measur
ing distance. However, we must con
gratulate the senator in that he
sought t® throw the cloak of pro
tection around the Colored race by
placing the responsibility for his
sudden predisposition to change com
plexion to a bunch of gangsters whom
he charged with making the assault.
In explaining the affair the senator
said that from the multiplicity of
contacts which came his way it would
have been utterly impossible for one
man to have reached him so many
times in the short period that elap
sed before he took the count. He ev
en suggested that tha gangsters were
members of a “black rect, as the
evidence shows the only discrepancy
being in the number of hands em
In the meantima the mystery grows
While it is known that one man with
a black hind is nursing his knuckles,
the Pinkertons, the Burns detectives
and Scotland Yard have been unable,
to date, to uncover the other alleged
members of said gang. It is mystify
ing, indeed. Poor Hooey.

Donald Henderson in his talk be

“This is an issue in which none of us
have any choice. If we oppose slaugh

active stand. We dare not compro
mise or stall on the excuse of political
differences. Pacifists, Communists,
Socialists, liberals — every one who
pretends to war opposition must fight
and fight actively. The time for pas

They have all failed. We must fight
<>n concrete lines. Stop the trans
portation of war materials.”

Gadding Children
By V|detta Ish
(For The Literary Service Bureau)
Man is a social being. In thi3 re
spect children of the human race
manifest the social trait quite early.
They like to play. They like to visit
and receive visits. Thifcs is helpful,
within a limit; but it is a mistake t»
allow children to cultivate the gad
ding habit until they want never to
stay at home
Don’t you want your children at
home “to themselves” sometimes!
Well, your neighbors do, also, some
times. Then this habit has a way of
fixing it3elf. The little girl who gads
will make a big gadder. If mother is
not watchful she will not want to do
anything at home She will come in
the front door, throw down her books
and her wraps and run out the back
My mother’s plan was to assign
certain tasks that must be done, be
fore we could go out, and to limit the
time we might remain away. Also,
we had our days out, and more days
in. Of course, different mothers use
different methods, but the habit
should he curbed—and early in life.
