“You Can’t Eat Your Cake and Keep
It is not uncommon to hear a child
cry “Where’s my cake?” Common al
so, is the reply, “You ate it.” From
this comes the axiom, “You can’t eat
• lr cake and keep it too.” The les
son is one of moderation in the use
of what we have and a caution against
waste of what we have. It is true in
regard to money, time, physical
strength. One cannot use these with
excess, with prodigality and at the
same time conserve them for future
use. So it is wiser to stretch them out
and profit thereby. The “prodigal
son” wasted all in riotous living, then

JAMES P. POND LECTURES
AT SPELMAN COLLEGE '
Atlanta, Georgia, April 11th.—
Special: James B. Pond, manager
of the Pond Lecture Bureau of
New York, presented his famous
lec.ure on “Eccentricities of Ge
nius” in iSsters Chapel on Mon
Born in an atmosphere of celeb
rities, Mr. Pond has been associat
ed all his life with the world’s
grea.. His father, Major J. P.
Pond, regarded by many as next
to Barniun, America’s greatest
showman, founded the Pond Lec
ture Bureau in 1873. He not only
managed the decture tours of his
| celebrities, but he brought them to
his home. As a boy Mr. Pond
! grew up with such people around
the house as Mark Twain, Conan
Doyle, Sir Henry M. Stanley,
Bill Nye, Ian MacLaren, Israel
| Zangwill, Paul Lawrence Dunbar,
and Hall Caine. On his father’s
death in 1903, Mr. Pond became
the owner of the eWorld famous
lecture bureau, and has conduct
ed it ever since.
Mr. Pond has managed a list
of stars that reads like,a “Who’s
Who.” He has had a unique gift
for finding talent and exploiting
it. Many people found by him
may have been later lured away,
tmi he has done an amazing
pioneer work. He managed the
tirsL recital for Paul Robeson.
He unearthed and first brought
to America the virtually unknown

SIX DIE FROM EATING ROTTEN
SALVATION ARMY FOOD
(Special to the CNA)
New York—At least six Negro
transients have been taken out of the
Salvation Army station at 224 W.
124th Street, seriously ill on account
of the food. They were carried to the
Harlem Hospital. All of them are re
About 450 youth live there and the
station feeds from 500 to 700 every
day. The meals consist of rotten beef
and yellow, decayed substances which
smell like garbage. The workers who
stay at the station claim that the
food is directly responsible for the
fatal illness of the six transient work
ers. They state that the food “isn’t fit
for a pig”.
Food Like Garbage
Besides serving rotten food to the
workers, all those who work in the
kitchen make 45c a week. Other
workers who are sent to Staten Island
to do hard labor under the worst con
ditions are paid two dollars a week.
The Salvation Army officials at

who are themselves underpaid, from
those who eat in the breadline. At ev

ARKANSAS COURT UPHOLDS
LANDLORD’S RIGHT TO
Little Rock, Ark. — (CNA)—The
State Supreme Court held last Mon
day that landlords here had a right
to evict Negro and white share-crop
pers and under the law the latter could
do nothing about it.
Ten sharecroppers sued H. Nor
cross, white, a landlord, charging evic
tions in violation of the acreage re
duction acts of the Roosevelt A.A.A.
The court held that the contracts cov
ering the arrangement were be
tween the landlord and the federal
government and that the sharecrop
per was a “free agent” who had noth
ing to do with them.
The court declared that the share
croppers had “no obligation to remain
upon the farm . . . and are left free
to stay or go as they choose.”
The effect of the decision is to leg
alize the landlord system of evicting
and starving the Negro and white
sharecroppers in this territory.
