NEGRO ALL-STARS SWAMP
ED BY CHICAGO BEARS IN
By Billy Davis, —Staff
Chicago, 111., Sept. 2<>—The Ne
gro All-Stars who were sebcted
By a nation wide poll to partici
pate in the 1st Charity game un
der the lights of Soldiers Field
Friday night Sept. 23rd, were out
classed and out played by the Chi
cago Bears to a tune of fil to 0. In
the first quarter the Professionals
made the All-Stars look as if they
were standing still. Fans from all
paits of the country were on hand
to see the undertrained colored
stars go down under the line drives
of the Chicago team. The All-Stars
threatened only once in the third
quarter when Ozzie Simmons
sneaked through lino for a gain of
12 yards, from then on it was the
Bears all the way. The Bears
nutweighted the All-Stars in eveiy
department. The fact ig that tho
Bears have been organized for
several years and they also have
some of the outstanding players
in the country on their squad, so J
this is one reason why our team |
was scored on go often. The other
reason is that the all-stars had
not been training but for about
ten days and the Bears have been
training all summer. So give the
all-stars just two more years and
they will reverse that score. More
power to the All-Stars, coached by
Duke Slater, Ray Kemp, Ozzie
Simmons and Windy Wallace .

CRIMINAL LAW—Drib ry
Bribery is a criminal offense—
and the offense is complete when
any attempt is made to influence
an officer in his official conduct,
wh: ther in the judic'al, executive
or legislative department of the
government by effer of a reward
or pecuniary consideration.
And the offer to accept a bribe
is equally criminal. It is no de
fens to plead that the official or
the body of which he was a mem
| be.1} had the authority by law to
do the thing sought to be accom. '
plish by the bribe. And it does i
not matter whether a vote if pro
cured by bribery produced the de
sired result or not, nor dots it
matter whether the official con
duct of ar officer produces the de
sired result or not. And it has
been held that where two magis
trates agreed to vote for the can

stating that they are now below

“When an employer has become

remains subject to the law for a
minimum of two years, regardless
of how few workers he employs
