The musicians really had a ball
in Mason and Knox’s Monday
night. It looked like an old fami
ly reunion down there.
We hear there’s a certain
young man in the Dixie Ramb
lers. who wears the brim of his
hat down when he ‘sports ’em
up and he wears it up when he
goes calling in society. Now, we j
wonder who that could be?
The boys who went on the good

a wonderful trip. Oh, Palmer I
house! We were glad to hear that
their trip was a sueeess, and by
the way, William Lewis is still the
manager of Desdunes’ Band.
De Wkt Mills has joined Lloyd!
Hunter and his Kats. De Bo has!
been running a pool room for the
last eight months in Oklamoha j
City, but he says he eould no

so here he is back in the old game,
and we’re mighty glad to wel

with this woman when he became es

her expensive presents ranging from
a canary bird to a motor car. She
accepted these and used them. She
admitted that she even received from
him money under false pretense and
i “got all she could out of him ”
Then this young woman took the
witness stand and tried to send to
death the man who loved her and made
these rich presents. She did not
know he killed his wife ■ But if she
did and knew that he had done it be
cause of love for her, it was rank
treachery for her to seek his death.
He gave love, adoration, devotion, and
I expensive presents and she repaid
with treachery. This is unusual for a
woman and it puts her in the class
with Judas Iscariot, Brutus and Bene
dict Arnold. She deserves condemna
tion and ostracism. The world will
ever hate treachery, no matter what
the circumstances.
What Others Think!
A Colored Daily Newspaper or Tri
eekly Newspaper would be a
strong advertising feature heading 1
frcrn Washington. D. C to Chicago, j
with subsidiaries west and south.
A Daily running instead of weeklies.
A Daily Colored Newspaper Syndi
cate could add a million dollars a
year income from advertising, over
the present weekly newspapers,
with a unit force from Washington
to Chicago: having a strong politi
cal force demanding better rights
and justice for Colored Citizens.
The time for a colored daily news
paper has arrived- News matter 3 to
10 days old re-written makes stale
newsmatter- It is poor composition
against Caucasian dailies bringing
forth fresh news matter every few
j hours. With such weeklies as the
Baltimore Afro-American, Baltimore,
Md., Pittsburgh Courier, at Pitts
burgh, Penn-, The Chicago Defender,
Chicago, 111., The Kansas City Call, at
Kansas City, Missouri, and the Am
sterdam News, New York, would make
a strong combination. With a coupl
ing up of these strong weeklies, they
could issue from each point a part
of a daily paper which would be no
(more than the weekly publication,
i which each of them now put forth •
For instance, the Chicago paper could
come out on Sunday and Monday, the
New York paper Tuesday and 'Wed
nesday, The Baltimore paper Thurs
day, Pittsburgh paper Friday and the
Kansas City paper Saturday.
They could telegraph their daily
matter over special wires going to
each point, one establishment giving
the news from their section from one
quarter section, second, third and
fourth quarter, completing a circuit
of news each day. Since each of these
newspaper publications have their own
newspaper plants, this would make it
easy, economical and profitable. It
would cut down unnecessary expense.
And give the daily paper better feat
ure writers. The object in view would
| be obtained. The colored citizens’ in
; terest would be advanced in the United
i States and a colored daily would be
competing with the caucasion dailies
Advertising would be valuable to
merchants in the industrial, commer
cial world, because of the important
current news freely coming forth
about the colored population in the
United States Many small weekly
colored publications would be special
correspondence because they would
feed upon the news, as subsidiaries
and would at the day of their publi
cation have the main features in their

M. B—I would like to knew what
my husband does every night to keep
him away from home?
Ans.—He has apparently been
cheating on you, for there is a girl he
has been going with lately that he is
in the company with nearly every
night—She is the one whose picture
you found in your husband's pocket.
B. G B.—What kind of employ
ment should I seek to be able to obtain
livelihood ?
Ans.—Since you are taking a course
in the afternoon and spending your
mornings studying, you should try to
find some kind of night job—Being af
flicted in your right arm, and not able
to do physical labor, the kind of work
suitable for you would be as a night
C. L-—I want to know when I will
get what I want?
Ans.—Your condition seems to be
improved, however you are in no con
dition at this time to leave the insti
tution you are in and I suggest that
you stay there until the doctor dis
misses you—You won’t have to stay
there but a few more weeks.
C. D—I would like to know where
my wallet went to?
Ans.—A few nights ago while you
were on the ship going to Baltimore,
it seems that your wallet slipped out
of your pocket during a card game.
After the game was over, it appears
that the waiter cleared away the table
—Your wallet seems to be in his pos
session now.
F M. R.—Will I be successful in
finding a good boy friend?
Ans.—At the dance you are plan
ning to attend the latter part of this
month, you’ll meet several nice boys
that will be attentive toward you.
When you start going with a boy you
should be careful so as not to scare
him off— No boy wants to have a girl

much if you would tell me who told
my husband on me?

The daily publication as a political
force would have a powerful influence
and we would see far better represen
tation in the U. S. Congress, the

at once, then a tri-weekly could be
tried out.

Dear friend Galloway:
I want to tell you how much I en
joy reading the editorials in the
Omaha Guide. I have noted with
pleasure that you devote almost a
full page to these editorials. The
subjects covered and the excellence of
the style and material would do justice
to a large metropolitan daily. I al
ways regard the editorial page as the
guide to the value of a newspaper.
You are giving your readers a fine
newspaper which they ought to ap
preciate .
Yours truly,

Ans.—The Civil Service Commis

until you get an admission card to
take the examination, and make a

take at least a month.

have a much better way of making a
living—For detailed information, see
note attached to this column and write
to me for a Private Reply.
E. D.—I want to know why people
are all time picking on me?
Ans—When people pick on you
they don’t intend for you to take it the
way you do. Your friends know that
you don’t like to be teased and they
only do it just to have a little fun.
Next time they start picking on you,
just ignore it or laugh it off as a
joke, and they’ll soon quit bothering
H. V—Is my boy friend in love
with me? I can’t seem to understand
Ans.—The way your boy friend acts
toward you is enough proof that he
really loves you, for if he didn’t he
surely wouldn’t stick to you the way
he does. The reason it is so hard for
you to understand him is because he
appears to be rather bashful, and finds
it rather difficult to express his feel
ings for you.

The winner of this contest will go
to Kansas City, Missouri, June 9th,
where the Regional contest will be
held, the winner of which will be
awarded a 4-year scholarship for any
college or university of his choice.
From these contests, since they were
established by the Grand Lodge of
Elks, more than 70 boys and girls
have been graduated, and at present
about 65 are attending the various col
leges and universities. It is hoped
by these contests to develop strong
men and women who are able to stand
on his or her feet and give expression
to their worthwhile thoughts, and in
telligently expound the doctrines and
principles of the constitution, for this
country is governed by law and not by
men, and how are we to secure our
rights under the constitution if we do
not know what they are ?
It is hoped that enough racial pride
and educational interest will be ex
hibited by the Negroes of Omaha to ‘
infuse a spirit of collective efficiency,'
which seems to be waning among us.
Hollins Case Victory'
Means New Court
Fight in Oklahoma
State Authorities Announce Plan
to Try Him Ag'ain in June or
July; Defense Fund Needed
Oklahoma City, Okla., May 23—
Jess Hollins, twice snatched from
death on the gallows by the N. A.
A. C. P. and saved again by the
United States supreme court in a
decision handed down May 13,
faces retrial almost immediately
by Oklahoma courts.
State authorities announced
here this week that they are
rushing plans to try Hollins
again, perhaps as early as June.
The state branches of the X. A.
A. C. P. and the national office
in Xew York are going forward
with plans for the Hollins defense,.
but are faced wtih the task of
raising the money needed to carry
In its decision Monday the su
preme court again struck at the
practice of barring Negroes from
service and declared the convic
tion of Hollins was unconstitu
tional because Oklamoha had re
fused to call Negroes as jurors.
The case was argued before the
court April 29 by Dean Charles
H. Huston, of the Howard Uni
versity law school and a member
of the national legal committee
of the N. A. A. C. P. He was as
sisted in preparing the case by
W. L. Houston and Edward P.
Lovett. The state of Oklahoma
was represented by its attorney
general. Mr. Houston and his as
sociates served without pay, but
the incidental expenses were paid
by the N. A. A. C. P. These were
reduced somewhat by having Hol
lo ' appeal as a pauper.
Faced with a new trial in Okla
homa. new money must be' raised.
The previous trials of Hollins
cost more than $500 and would
have cost much more had not
Editor Roscoe Dunjee and others
given service without even charg
ing expenses to the association.
The X. A. A. C. P. is appealing
for a Hollins defense fund of at
least $1,000 as it is likely there
wil be additiona expenses, no. in
the first trial.
The Hollins ease is one of the
most dramatic ever handled by
the N. A. A. C. P. Hollins was
convicted in December. 1931 of
criminal assault on a white girl in
or near Sapulpa, Oklahoma., and
setnenced to death. The L L. D.
took charge of the case. Nothing
was done for some months and the
death date was set for August
1, 1932. Leading colored citizens
in Sapulpa, and Okla
homa City, seeing no effort was
beine made to save Hollins wired
the N. A. A. C. P. on August 15th,
and on August 17th. a stay of exe
cution was secured for him to ap
peal to the supreme court.
The Oklahoma state supreme
court immediately reversed the
conviction and granted a new
trial. In its decision it used some
of the strongest language in years
in condemning the lower court
for its handling of the case. It
declared Hollins had not been
protected in his rights, that he
had had no lawyer, that he had
been tried in the basement of the
jail, at night, with a howling mob
outside and that the authorities
had taken advantage of him.
In the new trial, testimony cast
strong doubt upon the rape
charge and revealed the young
woman as one who mingled with
Negroes. The jury also was
brought out A conference will
be called of the state branches on
or before June 1 to push defense
Charge NRA Officials
Helped Intimidate
Negro Workers
Washington, May 23.—The fa
mous Maid-well Garment Com
pany case crashed the news lanes
again this week when John P.
Davis, secretary of the Joint
Committee on National Recovery,
asked Sol A Rosenblatt Complain
ce and Enforcement Director of
the NRA to dismiss two of his
Arkansas agents for violation of
well-established NRA rule that
name or identity of any com
plainant be not exposed to the
persons or company complained
against. The two agents whose
dismissal is asked for aiding in
the intimidation of complaining
Negro garment workers at Forest
City, Arkansas are Brooks Hayes
and C. M. Meusel of the Labor
Compliance Personnel of Arkan
Mr. Davis’s demand was accom
panied by an affidavit signed by
one of the Negro workers, Mrs.
Lea Duncan, that the agents per
mitted her testimony to be taken
in the presence of Ed Ash, repre
senting the Maid-Well Compnay
and Attorney S. H. Mann, his
lawyer. Mrs. Duncan testified j
that other colored women, former
employees of the company tried
to avoid paying them the NRA
wage scale, were also subjected to
sharp questioning by the com
pany’s attorney and the NRA
agents, in violation of the above
mentioned rule.
“The case of Mrs. Duncan is
but typical of the treatment ac
corded more than sixty-five other
complainants by these NRA of
ficials,” Mr. Davis wrote Mr.
Rosenblatt. “Further, affidavits
furnished by me to the NRA have
been made available to Messrs.
Ash and Mann. With informa
tion secured from these affidavits,
the respondent and their agents
have sought to intimidate nearly
all of the affiants into signing
statements in repudiation of their
affidavits. I have good reason to
state that Messrs. Hayes and
Meusel were well aware that such
use would be made of these affi
davits. They acted in total disre
gard of the fiduciary relationship
they bore both to these workers
and to NRA.
As duly authorized representa
tives of these workers and on be
half of the Joint Committee on
National Recovery I wish to ask
the immediate dismissal of Messrs.
Hayes and Meusel."
Air. Davis in addition demand
ed a hearing in Washington with
the two Arkansas officials and
four of the Negro garment work
ers present.
These Negro workers have been
trying vainly to get back wages

Recital By Madame
Frances E. Motin
First A. M. E. Church. Kansas City,
By R A. Adams
Kansas Cit}% Kansas. May 17.—
Magnificent, marvelous, incomparable
are some of the terms used to describe
the Grand Dramatic Recital at A. M.
E. Church, Thursday night. The pro
gram ran the whole gamut from Dun
bar’s “Encouragement” to Shake
speare's Macbeth and Julius Caesar.
The partic.pants were “raw recruits”
of only four weeks training by Ma
dame Frances E. Motin, declared by
the New Orleans Daily Times to be
the best dramatic artiste the Negro
race has produced.
This woman pioneer and veteran in
her line, reminds one of Madame Ern
estine Schumann-Heink, the marve
lous musical artist who is still an at
traction in spite of advanced age.
Madame Motin is the only Negro
graduate of the Alberta Magnus Uni
versity of Dramatic Art, of Los An
gelesj from which school she has the
much coveted degree of Bachelor of.
Histrionics. A product of Kansas,
educated in the public schools of To
peka, Kansas and Kansas State Nor
mal at Manhattn, th;e wonderful wo
mal at Manhatten, this wonderful wo
man has taught dramatics in Tuskee
gee Institute; Western University,
Kansas City; Lincoln Institute, Jeffer
son City, Missouri.
Madame Motin has conducted dra
matic recitals in all of the leading
cities of America, including Boston,
New York, Chicago, Kansas City, In
dianapolis and Los Angeles. She has
received many medals of honor, one of
the most highly prized being presented
by the Y. M. C. A. of Indianapolis.
A distinguished honor was her ap
pointment to represent the states of
! Missouri and Kansas at the National
j Negro Educational Congress held in
Denver, Colorado, a few years ago.
All Kansas City is urging a repetition
of this marvelous recital
Congressman Fish Says
Deport Families For
Color of Eyes
Washington, D. C. — (CNA)—Ham
ilton Fish, Jr., representative from
'New York, informed a New York City
delegation that as far as he was con
cerned “you can deport aliens for the
color of their eyes’*.
His statement was seen by many as
having direct bearing on the attempt
of the New lork City relief adminis
tration to “” deport West
Indian and other foreign born families
now on relief rolls
The delegation visited Washington
to petition congressmen to vote
against the proposed Alien and Sedi
; tion bills now pending in Congress
