The Union Pacific is very proud
to have hack in its employee a
great “Newspaper” man. He was '
fortunate enough (thru the caur
tesy of “Aunt Diner”) to be able
to cover the arrival of the delegates
of the National Baptist Convention.
Of course he met nothing but the
‘‘Big Shot” Baptist, L. K. Williams
etc. I’m wondering if there weren’t
any “little” baptist there.
We extend our greatest sympa

popular employee of the Union

Handy Gets Praise
In N. Y. Daily
New York, Sept. 23 (C)—What
is rare in the metropolis happened
last Thursday when an editorin'
appeared in the New York Herald
Tribune praising W. C. Handy for
his achievements as a composer.
The paper said:
“When Mr. Handy, composer of
‘The St. Louis Blues,’ was study
ing for the 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.
“His ‘St. Louis Blues’ is one of
those few compositions of the peo
ple, by the people and for the peo
ple that conquer the public and
keep it 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 iHandy’s masterpiece
of the blue note? ‘The Spirit of
St. Louis’ and ‘The St. Louis Blues’
have made America known and lik
ed to 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.”

Bell Glover and Mrs. Jellie Jacks,
Minneapolis, Minn.; and Mr. Albert
Williams, jr., of Sioux City, la.

Gas is generally recognized ir
the ideal fuel for heating purposes.

found in other fuels. No storage

The fuel bil1 isrendered after the
gas has been used, hence no invest

the most adaptable fuel for auto
matic heating operation. It reaches
full heat instantly and can be re

with ease. Tests show that room
temperatures may be maintaned
within a few degress of the select

thus eliminating odd n ims and
uneven heating effects in the home.
Probably most attractive is the
elimination of Inti shoveling and

The basement may be decorated

Modern, automatic gas furnaces
are beautifully designed and might
well be placed anywhere in the

Soviet Note Snags
British Tory Plan
London, Sept. 22 (Special to
CNA)—A monkey wrench * was
thrown into British plans recognise
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.
denee here that up to the minute,
the Soviet diplomatic bombshell ex.
ploded, the British government had
planned to include the Ethiopian
question on the agenda of the “pi
racy” conference, called by Britain
and France.
European statesmen have know n
all along that the attacks, during
the past six wee,ks, on the ships of
various nations have been perpe
trated by Italian submarines aid
ing the Spanish fascist rebels. For
various reasons, hew ev-r,they have
been reluctant to call Mu sol ini’s
hand: the French, bo ause they art
still following Britian's lead in in
ternational affairs, the British, be
cause the Tory government favors
*. Fascist regime in i-'pa'n and is
also seeking to efiV t n under
standing with Rome tint would re
move the Italian threat to the.
Briti-h “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 ri
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.
ft-rence, thereby sparing the world
the farcical spectacle of the pirate
sitting in a conference called to
discuss ways and means of ending
his pirasy. Nasi German joined
Italy in refusing to attend the eon.
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 pla>
for a reapproachment with Italy
at the expense of Ethiopia and
Loyalist Spain. Alieady there if
evidence that the British people are
ttuvot'ghly arroused and will op
pose any further dickci i:>g with a
p«w»i that is dei;*>ciateiv attHck
•*.g i ritish shipping.
Italy Faces African Crisis
The Italian pirate submarine
campagin is hIso likely to have im.
portant repercussions in France,
where the 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
Djibouti-Addis Ababa railroad for
transportation of troops and wr.
materials into Ethiopia.
The French East African rail
road has be orae a vital factor in
the Italian campaign to consolidate
conquest if Ethiopia, with Italian
commun.ationi-- between Ethiopia
and the Italian colonies on the
Fast African roast disrupted by
Ethiopia* guerrila fighters.

Facials for the Teen Age
The facial treatment for girls of
this age is primarily a cleansing
treatment to remove blackheads, re
lieve clogged pores, to arrest seri
ous blemishes and to correict a too
dry or too oily skin. It is however
very seldom that we have to treat
the skin too dry we, recommend
as a race have oily skins. When
the skin is too dry we cecommend
a light lubrication cream and when
too oily we use a light astringent
lotion which acts as a powder base.
The teen age miss seldom needs
a stimulating tonic or a vigorously
deep massage, because the skin fa
wrinkle free, well toned, full of
life and vitality. All it needs is an
extra thorough cleansing to re
tain its normal condition. This
should be given every month or six
