THE BLIND MAN
(Dedicated to Mr. Dixon)
Early one morn as he journeyed along
The blind man was whistling a song,
A hymn of faith and hope,
His heart and soul in every note,
“Just as I am, without one plea”.
When I heard the mournful melody,
I recalled the well known line,
“Just as I am, poor, wretched and
Yet, to the world he was revealing
With such a depth of feeling
In his heart and soul there is a song
Praising God as he travels along.
When Christ dwells in us and we
A glimpse of heaven can be seen,
For in His great love we find
Sight, riches and healing of the mind
Through eyes of faith he can see
The veil shall be lifted some day
Until then he shall sing and pray,
‘Just as I am, without one plea,
Dh, Lamb of God, I come to Thee”. 1

Alpha Phi Alpha
Launches Four Point
The Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity
launched on Sunday, April 28, an at
tack on four fronts against America’s
shameful treatment of her Negro pop
ulation, according to a statement is
sued by Professor Rayford W. Logan,
of Atlanta University, the fraternity’s
national director of education.
EDUCATION FOR CITIZENSHIP
is now the fraternity’s major objective
By citizenship is meant nothing less
than full participation everywhere by
the Negro in effective political organ
izations, and in the holding of elective
and appointive offices- This message
is being carried to the public through
newspapers, the radio, and mass meet
ings. Mr- Mack Spears, Kansas City,
Kansas, is the chairman of this phase
of the work.
Since in some sections of the coun
try there is not yet a full realization
of the cultural and vocational advan
tages inherent in a high school and a
college education, the fraternity’s fa
mous “Go-to-high-school, go-to-col
lege campaign is again being prose
cuted under the direction of Dr. John
W. Davis, Jr., Houston, Texas.
I he fraternity is again awarding, as
it did in 1934, the sum of $1,200 for
fellowships and scholarships. The
Committee on Awards, which includes
some of the race’s leading educators,
announces that the records of the men
to whom awards were made last year
and who are now studying at City
Colleges of New York, Fisk, Michigan,
and Ohio State, approach a straight
Probably the most notable activity
of the fraternity, Professor Logan de
clared, is its investigation of the var
ious New Deal agencies. A specially
engaged investigator spent several
months in the offices of every agency
in Washington gathering material to
determine the effects of these agencies
en the Negro. This report will ap
pear in a special issue of the Sphinx,
the official organ of Alpha Phi Alpha,
during the week of the fraternity’s
“I believe”, said Professor Logan,
‘that this is the most comprehensive
campaign ever undertaken by a fra
ternity or a sorority. I believe also
hat this investigation of the Federal
Agencies, as distinguished from the
IRA, is the first made by any colored
mganization. An idea of the value of
his investigation may be gleaned
rom the fact, revealed by the report,
hat Negroes have received less than
me per cent of the patronage jobs
ince the New Deal began. ”
Dr. Charles H. Wesley of history,
loward University, Washington, D.

To Aid the Health Diet
I came across a chart of the ideal
health diet. It was the best of its
kind I had seen, readable, under
standable, and correct. And in the
excitement of discov
ery I showed it to a
young mother whom
I knew to be a stick

thing in child rais

took the wind out of
my sails by saying with a little
touch of justifiable pride: “That’s ,
nothing I have that beat a mile.”
Thereupon she showed me an ad
mirable thing of her own invention.
And the best of it is, it actually
It, too, was a chart, a home-made
affair. First, I should say this
mother has two boys and a girl.
Her chart, hand colored, attractive
ly drawn, attempted to show in
terms cf child interest, the values
of the several essential foods. In
the left-hand column were state
ments such as these: “This makes
chinning the bar easy,” “This gives
speed to gunning,” “This helps to
make graceful dancers,” “This
keeps Daddy well to earn a living
for us," and so on.
Opposite these were colored
drawings. In one place there were
four glasses of milk; in another a
bowl of fruit; or a plate of bread
and butter. And so it went, down
through the list of essential food
items, including meat, fish, eggs,
nuts, all kinds of vegetables, and
milk products such as cheese, ice
cream, and custards.
The chart was hung in a con
spicuous place in the kitchen.
Sometimes the children are allowed
to select meals from the chart. At
other times, the mother points out
what she has planned for the next
meal. The object of the game each
time is to pick out a balanced meal,
in which there is a variety but with
£ome item from each of the es
The question of home work rises '
again; Dr. Ireland, will discuss it in
his nett article.
