BEATING THE GUN
By Alvin Moses for ANP
... What We Mean By
“Black Man’s Burden”
Traveling with me to the dress'ng
room of Iowa un'versity’s football
team for an example 'n point of
what we are eternally harping up
on as, “The Black Man’s Bur
Ooach Solem has all of his squad
varsity and scrub, gathered around
hhn 'n awed suspense. He doesn’t
keep them waiting very long, nei
ther does he d'sappo'nt more than
half of them in what he has to say.
Hey, Simmons,.stand up! I want
every man ‘n th's room to hear
what I’ve got to say to you. We lost
to M'nnesota by the unbelievable
score of 52 to 0! Can you picture
'n your minds, I mean every last
mother’s son of ye, what the other
Conference coaches and Alumni
Ass’ns are say'ng about Coach So

Simmons, you played lousy foot
ball in there aga'nst the “Gophers,”
and it looked to me l'ke, you pur
posely laid down there th's after
noon. ((Simmons 'n partial rebut
tal) “Why Coach, I never
played harder 'n my life, I don’t
know what it means to “lay down”
as you just sa'd before all of my
teammates, I don’t think you’re be
ing fa'r to me.(Interruption at
th's point), “You’ve said just about
too much S'mmons.get out of
this room and don’t show your face
again on the practice field unt'l
you’re ready to publ'cly apologize
to me before the ent're team.” Like
the discipl'narian, scholar and

with ears that refused to bel'eve

yellow-bell'ed blast of an offfc'al

the bronzed giant’s mind, I’ll tell
“If I take a sock at th's l'ar and
break his jaw, the news of it will
travel around North Amer'ca and
environs, and maybe,'"it will affect
the chances of other colored boys
who must follow in my steps. I
know that there 's hardly a single
player under the sound of his voice
who would have taken the unjusti
fiable lacing that he stuck under
me today, but I can’t afford to be
hotheaded 'n the matter, my ent're
college future is in the balance
here. What if he (Coach Solem)
were to use h’s influence in forcing
me out of the lowly position I have
here that helps to pay my college
tuition ? ? ? ? ?
What were my brother (also an
Iowa U. student) to suffer 'n the
subsequent persecution that would
follow my action ? ? ? ? ?

then he should still be Iowa’s foot

The fight'ng actually went five
rounds, Armstrong winning each
handily. The Mex'can, who had
never been kayoed before, kept
str'ctly on the defensive by crouch

Bumpy Times for the Late Lamented
By IRVIN S. COBB
TH,E ^r- Donovan had had a very close call from being a dwarf.
Indeed, there are dwarfs in circuses not many inches shorter than
he was. Despite his diminutive bulk and the handicap of lack of height
he nevertheless had succeeded in the contracting business and when
he died he left a tidy estate and his widow mourned him properly.
On the day before the funeral, having finished the preparations
for the wake, she sat in the parlor of her home when Mr. McKenna,
an old friend of the family, was announced. Ho asked, if he might be
permitted to take a last look at the countenance of the deceased.
"Help yourself,” said the widow. “He’s laid out upstairs in the
front room. Just you walk up, Mr. McKenna.”
So Mr. McKenna walked up. After the lapse of a few minutes he
tip-toed down again, wiping away his tears.
The widow removed the handkerchief from her eyes.
'‘Did you think to close the hall door as you came down, Mr. Mc
Kenna?” she asked.
I think so, Madam,” he said. “I was so overcome wit’ me grief
( didn’t take much note. I think so, but I won’t be sure.”
‘‘Would you make sure, then,” she said. ‘‘It’s twice today already
