Louisiana Negroes Say
They Will Miss Long
Baton Rouge, La., Sept. 21—(By
Don Davis for ANP)—A pall of
gloom bears down upon Negro citi
zens as a result of the assassination
of United States Senator Huey P.
Long. Some Negroes in the state op
| en!y disliked Senator Long, but the
larv"' majority regard him as a bene
Why? Readers in the liberal east
and west might reasonably ask the
question. A visit to any of the small
i or large centers of Louisiana would
supply the answer.
Two weeks ago I visited several
! towns where old and young persons
quizzed me about the voting situa
tion in their cities. They wanted to
know if colored citizens of other cen
ters planned to go to the polls as
they hoped to do. They furtively re
trieved their poll tax receipts from
places of concealipent with happy
smiles and I could with the cynical
eyes of a newspaperman observe that
these people cherished the receipts
and Long who made it possible for
them to have.
That was the setting of the stage
two weeks ago, but now it’s different.
The donor of these receipts is no more
His body lies in a grave, stilled by
an assassin’s bullet The setting of
the stage is changed and those people
see no role to be played by them in
it, for the Senator Long directed the
stage in the first described act. It is
r. question that time alone can an
swer whether any of the director’s
heirs inherited his fairness toward
this group.
The fact that he came from a cen
ter where the worst of race hatred
is supposed to prevail and possessed
all of the fairness that is said to be
long to the Latins of South Louisi
ana fascinated the Negro. Long nev
er in all of his stormy political car
eer made the Negro an issue . . . The
voice of the Negro was raised against
him on several occasions, when he
referred to them as “niggers”, but he
like Will Rogers, good-naturedly ask- j
cd their pardon. This is more than
any other politician would do, his
boosters would say.
The “learned class” resented this
act, but their numbers were small.
The dead senator was associated with
Negroes in his early boyhood and
mentioned his pleasant days with
them in his autobiography.
All of the race were not for Long.
There were those who asumed an
imaginary role in the state’s affairs
and from what they had heard and
learned of democracy, deplored his
methods of conversation. Long op
posed the anti-lynch bill, they said.
In his legislative maneuvers he made
no special effort to aid the Negro.
He had a much larger number of
ardent supporters in our ranks, how
ever. They were well fortified with
material to defend the “Kingfish”.
Zt required more votes than Long’s
to defeat the anti-lynch bill, they
would say. Long enacted no legis
lation directly in the Negro’s favor,
but neither did he direct any against
him. When a “Long” bill was passed
for the common good of the poor
man. the Negro faced no maneuver
ing to exclude him from receiving
the benefits of the bill- He campaign
ed against Dudley Leblanc, “Latin”’
gubernatorial candidate against Gov
ernor Allen. Leblanc ran on this plat
form, “The white mar. shall always
have the first chance at any job in
the state.”
I o reinforce this respect former
Congressman DePriest okayed Long
and assured the race that they were
sure to receive some bnefits from
Long’s legislative acts.
Wouldn’t the Negro get his great
est political chanee since the carpet
bag days in the coming election. It
was and is a criminal act to these
people to oppose Long. They see no
good in their poll tax receipts now.
Had the “Kingfish” lived, ample pro
tection at the polls was assured all>
but will his successors do this?
Long’s enemies were prepared to
make the Negro an issue in the comb
ing election and it will take a “Long
type” of person to stand his ground
in face of this unfair attack. It would
have meant little to the dead solon
for he had recently warned the en
tire Democratic party that they would
need more than the Negro issue to
win the south next year. What did
he mean by this? The anti-Long Ne
gro may also ponder the question.
Did Long’s assailant approve of his
plans to give the Negro the ballot?
In view of the fact that several
Negroes were beaten at the polls in
Oppelousas, one may conjecture that
some couldn’t stand to see Ethiopia’s
children vote and sent Long to his
Those readers who enjoy freedom
of the polls can discern from this
cause of the sadness among Louisi
ana Negroes. They saw in this “Dic
tator” a gleam of hope and were will
ing to smile at the minor, jocular in
sults he poked at them. They were
satisfied with the aids granted from
unbiased legislation, enacted by the
boy who found his way from a log
| cabin to the Senate.

Demand For Set “Types” Bane
of Negro Film Producers; Do
Not Look Beyond Custom
Decried Roles
Hollywood, Sept. 21.—They’ve
declared war on the dreadfuj
bugaboo of the Hollywood actine
To the non-theatrical mind it
woudn’t s e e m a bugaboo at all.
It’s only a word. The word is
But to the actors of the screen
colony that one little word is a
horrid curse, for it means that a
villian ma ynever be a hero and
a hero never a villian. And since
every villain hopes some day to
attain heroism and each hero
dreams of the day when he may
play a villainous role, “typing”
is an awful thing.
In the singular lexicon of t h e
screen, it means the acceptance
by producers and public of a cer
tain artist in roles of a single
type, and no others—This is a
splendid circumstance while the
actor is riding the crest of the
wave in roles of that particular
t.vPe» but it becomes disastrous
when the wheels of popularity
turn from pictures of that kind.
In such an event the victim of
“typing’ is apt to find himself
adrift on a treacherous river
without a paddle.
’ Uncle” and ‘ Mammy”
That, in a word, i sthe position
of the eNgro actor in Hollywood
motion pictures.
Battle-scarred Clarence Muse
knows the dangers of “typing”
even better than his younger
•i “
co-players and makes attempts
to avoid the pitfalls with the
wariness of a veteran.
Starting as Uncle Tom in
“Hearts in Dixie.” Muse has
achieved as much versatility in
hLs screen portrayals as h i.s
physique will allow
Stepin Feehit will always re
main the shiftless, inarticulate
lazy bones not because he lacks
energy but chiefly because Step
has really the Step you see on the
screen. He is typed for life. Add,
of course, the insatiable desire of
a white public for just the Ne
gro character Feehit portrays
and you come nearer the answer
than Mr. Perry’s disdain for
speedy diction.
There are no textbooks on
typing, ’ no rit there any broad
signboard that marks the danger
ous trail.
Prchibit Versatility
Etta Moten resorted to the
trial and error method during
her brief sojourn in einematters.
A mere suggestion to the produc
er of “Flying Down To Rio’’ got
her the part of a South American
entertainer when the script
called fo ra “Hot Mama” of the
Beale street tvpe.
Everybody remembers her ver
sion o f“ Forgotten Man” which
was the birth o fa new Negro
woman element in pictures. Either
mammies or ‘bad gals' w~ere the
fare when Moten symbolized the
younger matron whose troubles
are much the same regardless of
race or creed.
By degrees Theresa Harris was
able to prove that she could play
dramatic roles and, in a series of
major productions, prepared the
way for “Imitation.’’
Beavers Surmount
Louise Beavers, who is young
er than anybody believes, (she’s
still in her twenties) trod dang
erous ground when she accepted
‘Delilah. ’ But the tremendous
success with which the picture
met during its showing, relieves
the star of any limitations she
might have imposed upon her
self by playing mammy roles
when she still has years of great
accomplishment and studio activ
it vahead of her. Beavers is first,'
last and always a comic, though
the scren has yet to discover her
as such
Blossoming out as a versatile
young woman wit han adeptness
ta cpmedy. romance and villainy
is Nina Mae McKinney. In her
screen career she combines them
It might be pointed out that.
instead of being classified as
actors, Negroes are, for the most
part typed according to color,
age, size and disfigurement,
modes of speech, etc. Few are
accepted for screen roles, as such.
One cannot expect producers
t o deliberately avoid placing
their Negro players in potential
jeopardy of being typed, for
reasons well known to all of us.
Caution and astuteness of the
players themselves, such as we
have seen displayed in mild de
grees by a few colored players
will erase the ugly word from
Negro stardom.
Samuel Goldwyn received a
letter this week which baffled
him- Written by a youthful col
ored boy, it asked.

A flash from Warner Brothers
states that Paul Robeson will be
cast in the role of “De Lawd” in
film version of Mare Donnelley’s
celebrated stage play, Green
Pastures.’’ The author will direct
and adapt the screen version of
the play. Production is sched
uled to start October 1.

George Melford, directing
‘‘East of Java’ ’starring Charles
Bickford, at Universal City this
week, rearranged his schedule so
that Clarence Muse, noted Negro
singer, song writer and actor,
having an important role in the
production, appeared with Louise
