Negro Housing
Conditions Tn Pa.
Phildelphia, Sept. 26—(ANP)—
Where do colored people live in
Phildelphia? In what kind of hous
es ? And what living facilities do
they enjoy? These and similar
questions can now be answered
since the completion of a close and
comprehensive study of colored
housing made under the supervi
sion of Adolph Siegrast, superin
tendent, Phildelphia Real Proper-,
ty Survey.
The data, made public through
John H. Rankin, director of Dis
triots 4 and 5, Works Progress
Administration, were obtained dur
ing a recent city-wide Real Pro
perty Survey under the Civil
Works Administration and further
studies are being made under the
sponsorship of Thomas A. Logue,
secretary, Internal Affairs of the
Commonwealth of Pa.
Figrues Reveal Poor Houses
Structures occupied by colored
people—47,884 in total—are main
ly of single-family type—83.8 per!
cent; and 90.0 per cent of their
dwellings are row houses. Colored
people occupy 2,721 structures of
the store-and-dwelling type—which
miake up 4.7 per cent of their
structures containing four or more
household dwelling units.
One of the most significant tabl
es of the data is that covering ape
of structures. Of the total number
of houses less than 10 years old,1
47,432 of these newer structure
frere occupied by whites, but onl> j
634 by colored—or 1.3 per cent. As
the table mounts into the older
ape groups, colored occupancy
pains in percentage—reaching 42.2
percent for buildings 100-years
okl or over—-of which 2,227 are
occupied by colored people. Per-,
haps the most telling comparison
in this connection is found in the
mediam apes for white and colored
housing, which are 32.7 years for
white and 52.7 for colored.
Less Than One-Third Colored
Houses in “Good” Condition
It is also significant that leiss
than a third of the colored houses
were found in “good” condition
and almost half of them needed
repairs. Of the vacant housing in
neighborhoods, 3,390 of the struc
tures were unsuitable for use.
Rented houses unsuitable for use
numbered 7,215.
No. Water, Heat, or Bathrooms
As regards living facilities the
data for colored housing shows
855 structores not equipped with
heating apartus, and the percent
age of houses having no running
water either in the house or yard
is 1.2 per cent while the city fig
ure is 0.4 per cent. Dwellings with
out bathrooms number 9.3 per cent
for the entire city, while for color
ed housing the figure is 21.1 per
cent, this percentage being -about
the same for bathtubs and showers.
As regard# gas 'and electric in
stallations, lack of these facilities
is greater in the colored dwellings
and the percentages for houses
having no indoor water closets, are
7.5 Iper cent for the city and 19.6
per cent for colored buildings.

women who have given a great
deal of time and attention to their
‘appearance, and yet have careless
ly overlooked some simple little
detail which spoils the whole ef
Women who wear short-sleeved
summer frocks or sleeveless even
ing gowns sometimes neglect their
unattractive elbows, which detract
from the well-groomed appearance
every woman should have. Even
when a wealth of attention is lav
ished on the hair, the complexion
and the hands, no woman can look
her best if household tasks have
left her elbows reddened, chapped
or calloused.
Its easy to keep our elbows look
ing slim ‘and attractive if we will
give them the same consideration
we give our hands or fingernails.
Don’t acquire tho habit of lean
ing on the elbows everytimo you
sit down. This is the chief cause
of many enlarged unattractive el
bows. Watch for this tendency in
yourself, -and if you find that you
frequently sit with your chin cup
ped in your hands and your elbow
rotating on the table or chair-arm,
break yourself of the habit
The appearance of the elbows
can be improved considerably by
messaging them with a beauty
cream, or with olive oil. With one
arm extended straight forward,
take the slack skin on the outside

If the elbow's have become un
isually coarsened and don’t res
pond easily to treatment, try put
ting a heavy oil on them and leav
ing it on overnight. A light band
age can be wrapped about the el
bows to keep the oil in place.
Warm olive oil, or any beauty
preparation which has an oily
base, can be used for this pur
pose. Many women keep the skin
of the elbows soft and pliant by
resting the elbows in shallow
isaucers filled w'ith warm olive oil.
Naturally, the elbows tend to be
come darkened even more than the
skin of the forearms. For that rea
son, bleaching the elbows regular
ly is a wise beauty precaution. A
j regular bleaching cream can be
used, or, if you prefer, lemon juice
can be rubbed into the elbows. If
this is done regularly, the skin will
become noticeably lighter, and the

be improved.
