Elizabeth Ross Haynes, recently
■lected co-leader of the Twenty
first election District in New York
Hity, is sending a message to all
women throughout her state and
the whole nation. Said Mrs.
Haynes, in an interview with an
Amsterdam reporter, “I want to
ilazc a trail for the younger gen
eration. I want to awaken color
sd women to the opportunities that
ire theirs. I want to encourage
that type of social vision which
trrings together white and colored
mutual benefit and assistance, and
which unites all members of our
own group into a solidarity
through which they may gain the
strength to fight for their rights.”
"I feel that in an warns oi iue
we women should shoulder our own
responsibilities and not wait for
the men. We should stand de
fiantly side by side with the men
and fight tirelessly ft>r equal
rights due our race. The trouble
with so many of us now is that
we are shy and afraid. We must
conquer this fooling and push on
ward.” I &n> firm in my belief
that Negro women must soon a
waken to the call of opportunity
and put forth special efforts to
push the race toward its goal.” !
Since the war Mrs. Haynes has
become an authority on social and
labor problems. She. was the first
national student secretary of the
Y. W. C. A., and the first Negro
on the national board of the asso
ciation. While a member of the
Board she travelled all through
the South organising hundreds of
«Y” branches, many still carrying
on. She built up the women’s end
of the (Intenucial Movement.
During the World War she was a
driving factor in organizing the
Woman’s Bureau of the Depart
rwent of Labor. She is the author
of two books, the “Unsung Heroes”
and "Negroes in the Domestic Ser
vices in the United States.”
But-;—it was during her last
campaign for the job as co-leader
on the Tammany forces in Harlem
that gave her more pleasure and
greater satisfaction than anything
else she has accomplished.
Arc you to be a Thanksgiving

to take your hostess something in
expensive yet sorta personal ?
Then monograms will do the
trick! It is quite the niciest

will know that it isn’t just any

on the “Run". She’ll know at n

“My Personal Secretary’’ is a
little spiral notebook that the
lady of the house will find she
can't do without. It will actually
think for her. It is really an ap

the small scale-well, it will

How, I don’t know! “Run R Stop”

And without a doubt it will put an

I am a mother. I do not know
whether it is admissible to use the
berm adopted mother or not, but
;h? girl I ami writing about is an
idopted daughter. She Is 16 and
;razy about a boy. She pleads to
jet married. She is too young to
jet married, but I am afraid
something will happen. I have to
go away from home to work and
this girl is there by herself a good
part of the time. This boy will
not stay away, so you understand
my problem. What do you advise ?
You write sensibly of your prob
lem. It is a real problem- The
danger of which you hint is a real
danger, too. True, the girl is too
young to get married, but if you
arc circumstanced so that you can
not protect her and cannot send
her away to complete her educa
tion, my advice is that you allow
her to marry, choosing that horn
of the dilemma. Again I compli
ment your good sense.—Maxie

The short bob versus the long bob.
'With the beginning of fall and
winter we find so many women
"letting their hair grow”, as is
commonly spoken. For some rea
son we associate short hair for
summer and long hair for winter.
For some time there has been a
gradual but very decided trend to
wards shorter hair, and the smart
hair styles of this winter prom
ise to be the shorter hair styles,
rkirts are getting shorter and
hats getting smaller and both
these styli trends demand shorter
And too. short hair, contrary to
popular opinion, lends itself more
jreadily to a variation in style
I than a lunger bob.
We recoemeod the short lob,

satisfaction. When the hair is
'■'Vrt and dressed along simple
l:ncs, it is very easy for the pa
tron to tate for her coiffure at
home. She can comb and brush
it as much as she pleases and it

Short hair can also be arranged

ALTA VESTA FROM HER
My dear Child:
I see you are getting to be a
very busy young lady, since you
have to stop writing to your
father to look after other matters,
as you did in regard to your last
letter. Well, that is all right, for
I know you love your father first
I am thinking of what you wrote
concerning the colored girls and
again I commend your spirit of
fairness and I am pleased with the
way you deal with these serious
questions. Without waiting ’ for
further discussion by you, I
would emphasize that people who
are in more favorable circum
stances are by duty obligated to
encourage and help their less for
tunate fellows. This certainly is
true of the people called white
people in their relationship to and
their dealings with those who
are called colored people.
Well, it is almost “Thanksgiv
ing” now, and I shall have a nice
present for you. I'll tell you
about it, soon. Love to you and
Your loving father.
