Private Hudgins were running

The Union Pacific is very proud
to have back in its employee a
great “Newspaper” man. He was
fortunate enough (thru the caur

to cover the arrival of the delegates
of the National Baptist Convention.
Of course he met nothing but the

Bell, went Victor Metoyer, Emil

Handy (Jets Praise
In N. Y. Daily
New York, Sept. 23 (C)—What
is rare in the metropolis happened
last Thursday when an editorial
appeared in the New York Herald
Tribune praising W. C. Handy for
his achievements as a composer.
The paper said:
"Wnen Mr. Handy, composer ot
•The St. Louis Blues,’ was study
ing for tihe ministry many years
ago he ran out of money and went
to work on the levee so he could
go on. But the songs he heard
there so stirred his love of music
and his talent for it that he for
got one vocation and found an
other in which he made himself
heard around the world.
“Hie ‘St. Louis Blues’ is one of
those few compositions of the peso
pie, by the people and for the peo
ple that conquer the public and
keep 16 conquered. It has subdued
popular fickleness for many rea
sons, chief of them, no doubt, be
cause its source and inspiration are
as real as Handy’s imperishoble
as real as Handy’s imperishable
‘‘Is there a band or orchestra in
the two hemispheres that has not
played to wild applause, highbrow,
lowbrow, man, woman and child
giving in to Handy's masterpiece
of the blue note? "The Spirit of
St. Louis’ and ‘The St. Louis Blues’
have made America known and lik
ed te an incalculable degree, and
the city that gave wings to both
has the sympathy of all Americans
when its pride in Handy’s classic
prompts it to honor with a plaque
the composer—the musician of tal
ent who, with a few cents in his
jeans, scribbled on the back of a
cigar box years ago a song of deep
and universal appeal that neverthe
less belongs first and last to Am
erica, black, white and colored.”

the most adaptable fuel for auto

full heat instantly and can be re

Soviet Note Snags
British Tory Plan
London, Sept. 22 (Special to
CNA)—A monkey wrenoh was
thrown into British plans recognize
Fascist Italy’s “Ethiopian empire
and to cover up Italan piracy in
the Mediterranean when the Soviet
Union, in a sharp note to Rome,
bluntly denounced the Fascist po
wer as the pirate nation whose
submarines are attacking merchant
men in the Mediterranean.
Although official quarters de
clined to comment on reports from
Rome that Anglo-Italian soundings
had been made for British recogni.
tion of the “legality” of the rape
of Ethiopia, the belief gained ere.
dence here that up to the minute,
the Soviet diplomatic bombshell ex
ploded, the British government had
planned bo include the Ethiopian
question on the agenda of the “pi
racy” conference, called by Britain
and France.
European statesmen have known
all along that the attacks, during
the past six weeks, on the ships of
various nations have been perpe
trated by Italian submarines aid
ing the Spanish fascist rebels. Foi
various reasons, howev ■ -.they have
been reluctant to call Mu sol ni’s
hand: the French, be.ause they an
still following Britian's lead in in
ternational affairs, the British, be
cause the Tory government favors
i Fascist regime in Spain and is
also seeking to efii t :n under
standing with Rome th t would re.
move the Italian threat to the.
Britiih "life line” in the Mediter
ranean. In exchange for such an
understanding, the Tories are pre
pared to recognize Italy’s ‘Ethio
pian empire,” and to continue the
“non-intervention” farce with re
gard to Spain, despite Mussolini’s
open admission that Italian troops
are partcipating in rebel attacks on
the Spanish government.
Ethiopian Cause Gains
The Soviet note overturned the
British apple cart and so complete
ly exposed Musolini that the Fas
cist dictator refused to have any
thing to do with the "piracy” con
ference, thereby sparing the world
the farcical spectacle of the pirate
sitting in a conference called to
discuss ways and means of ending
his pira«y. Nazi German joined
Italy in refusing to attend the con
With Fascist Italy pilloried be
fore the world as the pirate nation
responsible for present lawlessness
and the breaking down of interna
tional law in the Mediterranean,
the British Tories have been forced
to temporarily discard their pin:
for a reapproachment with Italy
at the expense of Ethiopia and
Loyalist Spain. Alieady there is
evidence that the British people are
thoroughly arrows*'! and will op
pee" any further dickering with a

Italy Faces African Crisis
The Italian pirate submarine
campagin is also likely to have im
portant repercussions in France,
where tho Popular Front Govern
ment is showing signs of taking a
firm stand against Italian inter
vention in Spain and toward a re
versal of its inherited policy of
permitting the use of the French
lijibouti-Addis Ababa railroad for
transportation of troops and wai
materials into Ethiopia.
