Guidlie Club To Sponsor
' Goodwill Christmas Tree
The Guidite club will hold its
first city-wide Goodwill Xmas Tree,
Monday evening, December 27th in
the auditorium of the Omaha Guide
8419 Grant street.
In tracing the life of the Guid
ito club, we find that this organiza
tion of youth created for the pur
pose of teaching the boys and girls
who read the Omaha Guide to ap
preciate art, literature, science and
physical education as well as en
lighten them as to the progress of
black America through the Negro
History Questions and answers,
has indeed made an inroad into the
life of the youth of Omaha, result
ing in the Guidite club, which start
ed March 6, 1937, to now boast of
oyer 700 members.
Among the outstanding programs
of public nature that has been
sponsored by this organization of
youth are as follows: The Gu dite
Club May Day Festival; a program
that drew together the youth of
sixteen Omaha churches and one
out of town church, totalling 750
young people, subsequently they
staged a mammouth parade cover
| ing one half a mile along Twenty
fourth street, lead on by the Ne
gro WPA band. The host of youth
march to St. Jfohn AME church
where they were greeted by ap
proximately 1.000 mothers, fathers
and friends, where they put on un
doubtedly the largest demonstra
tion of youth talent that has ever
been in Omaha, in song and speech
i - under he direction of Miss Ethel
J ones.
A theatre party that packed the
Ritz theatre with over 700 young
An Easter Egg hunt at which
time over 400 youth enjoyed an
afternoon of hunting eggs. They
enjoyed good eats.
Thus as we come to the end of an
enjoyable year Uncle Gil is anxious
to make thousands of Omaha Youth
happy during the Christmas holi
day season, with that in mind he
is planning for the, biggest Christ
mas tree program ever to be held
in Omaha, where candies, toys
and cMtfhing and fruit will be giv
en to every child in attendance.
Battle Balancing
Place a round bottle on its side
on the floor, then have a person
sit down on the bottle, extending
legs full length. Put the right foot
on top of the left toe, afterwards
giving the person pencil and a piece
of cardboard or heavy paper, and
tell him to write his name on it
without, his hands touching the
floor. It usually takes several ef
forts to accomplish this feat,
v Trick Matches
This stunt may be used on vari
ous occasions. Have one or two
candles in the room lighted. Have,
one that is not lighted, and when
a new arrival comes give him a
trick match and ask him to light
the match. It will explode like, a
small firecracker or toy pistol cap.
It is harmless. The matches may
be bought at any novelty store at
five cents a box. This is a lot of
The Guidite World
of Music
By Miss Ethel Jones
Peter Ilyitch Tschaikowsky
Conductor Walter Damrosch
Peter Ilyitch Tschaikowsky was
born May 7. 1840 at Kamsko, Vot
kinsk, government of Viatka. Al
though a creator of immortal
works, no man was ever more sub
ject: to mortal moods than he was.
Never robust in health, nostalgia
and restlessness beset him, through
out most of his mature years
When on conducting engagements
throughout Europe and America he
suffered agonies of homesickness.
On the other hand when he was
home he suffered a restlessness to
be on the go again.
His start on a musiccar eer canie
when he gaye up the legal practice
into which he had been thrust after
graduating from a law school in
1859, he was appointed to a post
of mirsttry of Justice.
His parents were not particular
ly musical, but he had had regular
piano lessons from the aige of se
ven. As he came into manhood his
musical talents became more and
more manifest. In 1861 he studied
theory with Zaremba and in 1863
he decided definitely to follow a
musical career. Entering the con
servatory of Petrograd, he took up
the study of the flute, organ and
piano. Anton Rubenstein being his
piano teacher.
One of the good fortunes which
came into his life was the financial
assistance given him by Madam
von Meek, which enabled him to
devote his time entirely to composi
| tion. Strange to say, that in the
13 years she aided him he never
met her.
Some of his well known works
are the “Nutcracker Suite,’' “Mar
che Slav,” the ‘‘Pathetique Sym
phony” and many others.
Tskaikowsky’s career came to a
close suddenly when he died of
Cholera in Petrograd on Novem
her 6, 1893.

Beware Coughs
from common colds
That Hang On
No matter how many medicines
you have tried for your cough, chest
cold, or bronchial Irritation, you can
get relief now with Creomulsion.
Serious trouble may be brewing and
you cannot afford to take a chance
with any remedy less potent than
Creomulsion, which goes right to
the seat of the trouble and aids na
ture to soothe and heal the inflamed
mucous membranes and to loosen
and expel the germ-laden phlegm.
Even If other remedies have failed,
don’t be discouraged, try Creomul
sion. Your druggist Is authorized to
refund your money If you are not
thoroughly satisfied with the bene
fits obtained from the very first
bottle. Creomulsion is one word—not
two, and it has no hyphen in it.
Ask for it plainly, see that the name
on the bottle Is Creomulsion, and
you’ll get the genuine product and
the relief you want. (Adv.)
