“REVEALING', Lpur - ' PAST, PRESENT OKU fU1PRE •• Aeee.' wula J. L. P.—Do you think I am doing my boy friend right? Ans: What you are doing to your friend is just plain cheating, and you can hardly call that treating him right. The girl that works with you would gladly give her right arm to be in your shoes. If you continue two timing him, don’t be surprised some day to find this girl to be the one that gets all the attention from him. B. G.—I have always desire to be long to a certain organization and I want to know if I will ever be that lucky ? Ans: Within the next two months you will probably have a chance to become a member of the organization which you wish to belong to. How ever, through a sudden change you’ll make, it will offset your plans—For detailed information, see note attach ed to this column and write to me for a private reply < M. K. H.—Will my mother ever get anything for her property? Ans: The damage that was done to your mother’s property was esti mated to have been very little and it will hardly be worth her time to take such a small matter into court. If she’ll act a little more even headed, she'll have a better chance to settle up this matter with the state and will be treated fair about the cost of the damage. E. S.—I would like for you to kind ly tell me what is the trouble with my husband and what should I do? Ans: Your husband is apparently very lazy and is just trying to hide ft from you, for if he had any ambi tion at all, he would be out making a living instead of letting you do all the work just to satisfy his desire for money. I don’t think it would be very wise for you to leave him now for there is still a chance to make something out of him. Every week when you draw your small ,salary just keep it and don’t give your hus band a penny of it—That will be a good way for you to find out just what kind of a man he is. # r M. A.—Please tell me if the gossip I heard about my sister-in-law is true or not? Ans: The rumor you heard was more or less just a lot of gossip for as far as men are concerned, your sister-in-law never has a serious thought about a n y of them except her husband. One of your gossiping neighbors happened to see your girl friend's husband talking to your sis ter-in-law as she passed her tea shop and didn’t stop to consider what he was doing there—After all, it is your sister-icv^aw's duty to be friendly toward people so as to bring in cus tomers, and build up a good reputa tion for her tea shop. A. T.—I love my wife very dearly and I want you to tell me what to do about her? I am so worried., Ans: The misfortune you’ve had the past five years, getting into jail and separating from your wife is enough to cause anyone to worry. While you were in jail your wife changed her point of view about you and will readily consent to remarry ing you—I advise you however, to wait until you find work making enough money to start out right be fore you send for her. S. A.—Do you think I will be suc cessful in passing my courses? Ans: There is hardly anything more you can do to pass your cours es other than what you have been do ing. However, since you are so inter ested in your studies, you shouldn’t mnd deprvng yourself of some of your recreation, and spend this time | op your school work so as to make j excellent marks like you did last se mester. The falling down on your I,grades seems to lie partly in the fault of your teacher and it wouldn’t be a bad idea to try to keep op the good side of her. F. Aj—Will my marriage be a suc cessful one ? Ans: If you carry out the plan you have been thinking about you can hardly expect your marriage to be a successful one, for it will be em barrassing for you as well as this man if you send the law after him and force him into marriage. Al though it appears to be his duty to marry you, I advise you to wait until he wants to do it willingly.: C. P.—I would like for you to ad j vise me what to do about the trouble between me and my husband? Ans: The best thing for you to do in. regards to the trouble in your home is to forget the past and trust your husband again. Stop the way you are living now and look out for :;he future—Your jealousy seems to have been at the bottom of this trouble, for it was nothing but a strong imagination that caused you to believe your sister was writing notes to your husband.

For % Dollar Hundred Memphis, Tenn., Sept. 12—(ANP) —Nine of fifteen members of the ex ecutive council of the Southern Ten ant Farmers Union met sere last Sunday and tabulated the preponder ant vote of cotton picker members of the union to strike unless they are paid one dollar a hundred pounds for pckng cotton. The votes were tabulated from a ■ questionnaire sent 60 days ago to members of the Union. 11,186 mem bers voted for the strike and 460, aginst. Returns were received from 90 of the 125 locals of the Union. The lowest price paid for cotton picking in 1934 was 40 cents per hundred pounds and the highest, 60 cents. Cotton pickers now are being paid from 50 to 60 cents per hun deed, except in the Marked Tree, Ark., area, locale of outbreaks last spring, where day laborers are open ing at 75 cents. It is believed the Union demands will be met in this region without a strike. The executive committee will set a date for the walkout, aranged to be effected through the joint action of a rank and file committee of five members. Sharecroppers and tenants who must pick a crop to fulfil their con tracts will not join the strike, only the day laborers. Considerable scabbing is expected as a result of the ruling of the Shelby county relief administration to the effect tsat relief clients are to be taken off the relief rolls and placed in the cotton fields. About 6,000 persons will be affected. A committee of inquiry, represent ing the Southern Tenant aFrmers Union, has been appointed to investi gate the activity of the clandestine sharecropper organization in Ala bama, looking toward a Possible merger. Ward H. Rodgers, convicted of an archy iast spring n connection with Union activities at Marked Tree, Ark„ will go on trial again in the Circuit court of oinsett county, Oc tober 1. He will be defended by C. T. Carpenter, Marked Tree lawyer, who represented him in the justice of the peace court. Eichelberger Flays Neutrality Act - ■ « Hartford, Conn., Sept. 12—(ANP) —Passage of the recent “neutrality act” by Congress was flayed by Dr. James Eichelberger, director of re ligious education for the A. M. E. Zion church in a speech here last Thursday night to the New England district conference of the African Methodist Episcopal Church. “Any country like America that can pass an act in Congress in a time like this when a strong nation is vio lating the rights of a weaker nation, shows the world the cowardly tend ency of our American spirit,” Dr. Eichelberger asserted. He also demanded equality for the Amercan Negro, insisting “there must be equality for the Negro race in America before we hope to have anything like peace and contentment. There ought not to be a law or con dition arising that a Negro should not hold any position offered by the nation if he can qualify. Black men in America must realize that they must help themselves if they are to get any place in this world.” All American Com mittee Starts Third Year Boston, Mass., Sept 12—(ANP)— W ith the opening of the forthcoming grid season the National Negro Newspaper All American Association composed of leading sports writers in every section of the country starts its third year of operation, watch ing the members of various teams in action with the idea of selecting the best possible eleven at the end of the season. This association came into being three years ago and the teams select ed have been composed of players in practically every collegiate associa tion, and have been regarded as “the All American Team”. Sports writers, with the collaboration of prominent coaches and officials send in their recommendations and from these the players are selected. EQUITABLE REGULATION AT LAST __ The bill providing for regula tion of trucks and buses in inter state commerce has passed both branches of Congress, and has been approved by the President. No fanfare of trumpets attended its passing or signing, and it did not “make” the headlines. But, from the standpoint of the gener al welfare, few pieces of legisla tion passed by recent Congresses can compare with it in import ance. I The bill does not penalize trucks and buses. It simply places their regulation within the jurisdiction of the Interstate Commerce Commission, which has strictly regulated railroads in every phase of operation. It puts all carriers on the same equitable basis, so far as regulation and federal supervision is concerned. The bill’s passage will produce two immediate results, both of which are of vital public interest. First, it will make it possible to control and eliminate the so-called “wildcat” bus and truck opera tor, with improper equipment, in adequate insurance, and no sense of responsibility that falls upon those who transport persons and, goods. In this way it will be of immense benefit to established, well-operated truck and bus sys tems, which have been greatly damaged by the irresponsibles within their industry Second, it will give our great est single industry—the rail roads—a fair chance to compete for business. Railroad purchas ing will increase ,more men will be put to work, schedules will be speeded up, new construction will be undertaken and every worker and investor will feel the good effects. Passage of the bill is one step toward clearing up the chaotic transportation problem. Changes in such outmoded measures as the long-and-short haul clause of, the Transportation Act are also sorely needed. CONSUMER GETS A BREAK Following the World War, when food prices skyrocketed to unheard-of figures, a great fur ore was raised in political circles i as to how to get food products from the producer to the consum er without pyramiding overhead charges through a chain of mid dlemen. The great need for lower-cost food brought its own answer. Progressive food distributors ap plied to the Henry Ford idea of coordinating sources of supply and distribution—in other words, transferrin gthe food products of the farm and factory through one selling organization, directly from the producer to the con sumer. The result of this revolution ary movement has saved the fam ilies of America countless millions of dollars in the cost of living during the past 10 years Just as the modern farm co operative is benefiting agricul ure, so is mass buying and dis tributing of food products through a central organization, benefiting the consumer. The modern chain grocery store has been the business-like answer to the demand for lower living costs that could be se cured b yefficient management and reduction of middlemen charges ,without injury to the producer. In other words, the chain grocery stores found the way to eliminate the premium paid for inefficient marketing methods, and pass the saving on to the consumer in the form of lower retail prices. No business accomplishment in the past decade has been of such financial benefit to every family in the land. Dies Of Roach Poison Charleston, S. C.. Septj 12—(ANP —According to the police, John Lance, 56-years-old, found a five gal lon can of roach poison in the city dump last Friday and mistook it for alcohol. He and some women friends threw a party. Lance is now dead, two of the women are dead and two men are in the hospital. Police are trying to locate the other guests, if there are any.

North Carolina Offi cials Given Names Of Ward Lynchers —— Investigator Charges Officials Cooperated With Lynchers; Na tional Guardsman Cuts Off Toe For Souvonir; Ward Known To Be Insane New York, Aug. 28—Sensational disclosures of the lynching of Gov an “Sweat” Ward in broad open day light at Louisburg, N. Cv on July 30th which were made by an N. A. A. C. P. investigator were forward ed today by the N. A. A. C. P. to Governor J. C. BJ Ehmghaus of North Carolina and Solicitor W. Y. Bickett. The N. A. A. C. P. investigator, a southern white man, reveals in his report the names of nine members of the mobof twenty-five to thirty, who lynched Ward at Louisburg at eleven o’clock in the forenoon. Among the alleged lynchers are several county and city officials. A second startling disclosure made by the N. A.) A. C. P. is that a mem ber of the National Guard, sent to Louisburg to prevent the lynching and restore order, is reported to have cut a toe from Ward’s foot as a grisly souvenir. Members of the Na tional Guard sent to Louisburg from Henderson, N. C«, arrived after the lynching had taken place. The investigator’s report reveals that Ward was known to be insane and had had frequent spells of vio lence. The N. A. A. C. P. charges that the State of North Carolina is indirectly responsible for the homi cidal attacks made by Ward prior to his death on his female cousin and two men, one of whom he killed, in that the State should have long since placed Ward in an Institution for the insane. Further evdence of Ward’s mental state is given in the N. A. A. C. P. investigator’s report which tells how Ward after having struck Charles G. Stokes, a white farmer, with a brick as Stokes worked in his tobacco field, returned to his cous.n’s home, got an axe with which he re turned to the field and cut off the head of Stokes. Ward then took the severed head to his own home, wrap ped it in bed clothing and then took a seat in the yard, placing the head by him, in which position he was found when officers arrived to ar rest him. Negroes Did Not Participate in The publshed reports that Negroes joined in the lynching mob were Lynching Ob'"*?Ter zed by the N. A. A. C. P. i "v sMorator as “entirely false”. The investigator atti^butes this report to the fact that a Negro did aid in the n,*vest of Ward. In calling Governor Ehringhaus’s attention to this phase. Walter White, Secretary of the N. A. A, C. P., cited the charge fre quently made that if Negroes would help arrest other Negroes charged with cr'mo and cease “shielding” Ne gro criminals there would be fewer lynch.ngs and better race relations. “But there is an instance,” Mr. White reminded Governor Ehringhaus, “which is unfortunately neither the first nor, we fear, the last, where a Negro did help apprehend a Negro charged with crime only to see him put to death in broad open daylight.” Convictions Tin possible “It is 'Impossible to convict any one before a jury from that county on account of public opinion,” the N. A. A. C. P. investigator states. “The officials of Franklin County were ei ther a part of the mob or in sym pathy with it. The localpaperjustifi ed the act. Solicitor W. Y. Bickett of Raltigh held an investigation using tho local legal channels but nothing can be done through that procedure. He was sincere in deploring the deed. The important papers of the State, such as the Ralrigh News and Ob server, the Raleigh Times, and the Greensboro Daily News were out spoken in their criticism of the local officials.” Governor Ehringhaus cen sured thr local offidlals for neglect of duty. Senator Bailey Again Scored For Filibuster Mr. White also wrote today to Senator Josiah W. Bailey, one of the leaders in the filibuster against the Costigan-Wagner bill, with whom there has been an acrimonious ex change of correspondence- recently. The Ward lynching and the fact that participants in it are now known is cited by Mr. White to Senator Bailey as further proof of the fact that lynching cannot be. stopped without Federal action. “Do you still main tain," Mr. White asked Senator Bail ey, “That Federal aid to honest state, county and municipal officials is un necessary ? " Woman Awarded $1000 Damages * Goldsboro, N. C., Sept. 12—(ANP) —Mrs.1 Emma Sasser, was awarded $1,000 in her suit against the city here Tuesday morning, when the case was reviewed by jury in the Wayne county Superior Court. Mrs. Sasser had entered suit for $2,000 damages received when she fell into an un covered water meter box on an un lighted street at night about two years ago. Mrs. Roosevelt’s Guest Forced To Act As j Maid in Texas Charlotte Hawkins Brown Humil iated; White Friends Can’t Help Her Greensboro, N. C., September 12— (ANP)—Early last spring, many of the most distinguished citizens of New York City, cam»2 to the home of Mrs. James Roosevelt, mother of the Presi dent of the United States, as guests to pay honor to Mrs. Charlotte Hawk ins Brown, founder and principal of Palmer Memorial Institute at Sedal ia, North Carolina* Last week, Mrs. Roosevelt’s honor ed guest was forced to dress herself in a maid’s attire in order to travel with white friends in a Pullman car in Texas. Before agreeing to wear a uniform of a maid, Mrs. Brown had been humiliated by being yanked out of a berth at one-thirty in the morn ing, under threat of arrest and forc ed into a second class coach packed with Mexican immigrant cotton pick ers. Because of her achievements in rural education and her distinction in national educational affairs, Dr. Brown was invited to be one of a group of educators who toured Mexi co under the auspices of the Associa tion of Progressive Educators of the United States.' The Association held r. convention in the Palace of Fine Aits in Mexico City. Three hotels in that city refused to admit Negro delegates and a protest was voted by the Association. Reurning from Mexico with a group of her associate educators (white) Dr. Brown reached Laredo, Texas, on the border. The Mexican conductors aroused her at 1:30 a. m. and informed her that Texas law for bade Negro interstate travelers from occupying even seats in a Pullman car where whites were seated. Under pain of arrest, they insisted that she go into the second-class Mexican coach. Dr. Brown yielded to thtir de mands and found herself crowded in w ith a group of cotton pickers. She appealed in vain to the train conductor for drawing room or com partment accomodations for the 48 hours travel to St. Louis, This was refused. Within three hours of San Antonio, she secretly offered the train con ductor a five dollar tip if he would agree to the Pullman conductor’s willingness to shelter her in a draw :ng rocm to Antonio. This was ar ranged; At San Antonio, Dr. Brown got in touch with Ambassador Jo sephus Daniels, whom she knew, and informed him of her predicament. He wired into San Antonio in an effort to arrange suitable accommodations, but without avail. The officials of ■ i Missouri Pacific, the Pullman conductor, and the officers of the as sociation could do nothing to modify t’ is rigorous application of the Tex as law. Dr. Brown’s associates even offered to pay for all space in the car to protect Dr. Brown from Texas pass engers, but even that was futile. Finally, the Pullman conductor in formed her that he could only carry her if she posed as a maid. In order to assure herself of a medicum of comfort Dr. Brown submitted to what sho considered a more agreeable form of humiliation. Dr. Afcner Laid To Rest Denver, Colo., Sept, 11, (ANP)— Following private funeral services held at his residence and attended by some 35 close frends, Dr. E. W. D. Abner, prominent fraternal leader ! and former head of the American Woodmen, who was slain here last week by Miss Eleanor Smith, was laid to rest here Saturday after noon.
