Ans: Well, brother, there
was only one person who could
p.^sibly have gotten your
bough and you know as well
as I uo that one person Is.
My advice Is to put a padlock
on your britches pocket* when
you go to bed.
M. E. A_Please tell me what
in this I have in my stomach. Has
arybody did anything to me?
Ans: No mam. But you
should bo X-PtVYED. Yjotfr

you Ko consult with a
reputable physician and have
him x-ray this condition.

M. C. C. J. Do you think anybody
in this town likes me? I get so
lonesome and discouraged at times.
Seem- like I have no friends and
the whole world is against me.

letters. Please advise we what
to do. My stomach is running me
crazy just about. Did he carry my
policy away thinking I would die
‘con and he would get my money.
Ans: Quit worrying about
this policy. Its your policy and
ell yolu have to do is to Jet the
Insurance Company know that
you lost it. They will be glad
. to let you have another one
and you can name your own
BENEFICIARY. Your friend
can’t hope to profit from your
death, and besides, YOU
AIN’T FIXING TO DIE. I

When you do marry it will be
on short notice and to a girl
who will capture your heart
55. B.—My husband is very cross
and fussy sometimes. Sometimes I
wish I had never seen him. He
fusses about most everything.
I am always buying him some
thing but it seems as if he for
gets a favor as soon as it is done.
Should I leave him or continue
to stay with him?
Ans: You wouldn’t be happy
if you left him. I know he’s a
min sometimes, but he truly
loves you. You will be closer
together by certain events to
happen a little later in life.
To leave now. would be a mis
take I believe.

It seems 1° us that the City of
Philadelphia 'has set a very fine
example for tho participation of
Negroes in the fruits of charity
drives. First, it is noted that mem
bers of the group are included in
tho official personnel; and aeccnd,
it is nobej that the funds are dis
tributed with a fair degree of ac
curacy between racial groups in
proportion to the population served.
Mr. G. Fleming, a colored member'
tf the publicity staff of the United
Campaign, the agency which raises
the money, reports:
“With the mono, ‘Give till it
helps,’ all Philadelphia joined this
week in laying plans for the annual
United Campaign which provides
funds for 141 hospitals, settlement
houses and other welfare agenc:es.
TSvch e of these are operated speci
fically in Negro communities, but
Negroes benefit, as well, from all
the citywide services .
“While Negroes are integrated
jin the top management of the cam
paign, a Cooperative Committee
Nas undertaken the responsibility
of ‘putting over’ the effort among
Negroes. This committee is head
by that busy college president, Dr.
t-esliu Pinckney Hill, who is so
>ften drafted for civic programs
all over the country Dr, Hill is
\ member of the board of directors
of The Community Fund of Phil
adelphia and Vicinity, and thus
shares in the all-year making of
policies; E. V^uishngton Rhodes,
newspaper publisher, is a member
of the central publicity committee,
while Dr. Dellaven Hinkson, of
Mercy Hospital, is a member of
tho central speakers bureau.
“The goal of the campaign is
this year $4,000,000, and the cam
paign will last during the entire
month of March. With it success
ful the twelve institutions managed
by Negroes will be kept open.
“Drawing no lines of race, creed
or color, the figures show that of
tho funds collected by the United
Campaign, bhe per capita expendi
ture on Negroes last year was
$1.92, while for whites it was $1.62.
Tho total spent on the city’s 2f>5,
000 Negroes is conservatively es
timated at $489,740, while on the
1,744,600 whites $2,822,760 was
"The nme agencies and threo
branches devoted primarily to wel
fare work within the race, received
$113,185 from the United Cam
paign last year. Forty-four other
agencies, with Negroes comprising
more than 5 per eent of clients, re
In addition there are a large
number of agencies, giving com
munity-wide service in such mat
ters as health education, coordina
tion of activities and legislation,
all of which services are available
The nickname, “City of Brotherly
Love*” is no misnomer for Phila
delphia, at least where charity is
It is our hope that t.h« multipli
city of government agencies which
lave as their objective the succor
ing of he needy will not kill the
adventurous spirit of the Negro.
It is from such a spirit that out
standing successes will come in
the future. Nothing distinctive,
creative, and independent can come
cut of a condition of dependency
That is one reason why we develop
ed so few men and women of stam
inia during the period of slavery
We were dtspendent upon others
for our bread and keep. Nowadays
it is taking another form-relief. It
is coming to ba the height of the
ambition of some of our younger
people to get cn relief. Some of

ihundreds of well trained young
people, and giving hope and inspir

the group. Or Major R. R. Wright,

vividly remembers slavery, but who

NEW AND ROUGH:
There is a new way of making j
love, and Oh, man, is it rough
First you "peck” and then you
“irnt”. I call it Peck and Pat. As
the girl and boy peck they kiss, j
After the kiss, tho girl pats the j
hoy’s face. This is kept up for as
long as is wished. Oh, you want to
know who made it up eh??? Well,
I'll tell you folks!!! It was origin
ated by "JAWS and JENNY" in
the Jtoxy Cafe. Next time kids,
have an observer to watch for any
unwanted people. You are not
tennis players, but you sure were ■

"Go North Young Man”. (But no
farther than Wirt street) Wait, I’m

Homer Jackson seems to like
the song, “I go For That,” sung by
Mildred Bailey very much. Which
part do you like best, Jack? The
part that goes “Your fuzzy hair,
your vacant stare, I go for that
that." Yep, it’s because when it
gets to this part. Jack runs his
fingers through 'his locks and says,
"That’s mo boy, that’s me.”
Way8 of Describing It
There is more than one way to
say anything. For instance, a Har
vard professor who saw the con
test from the front row and the
fighter who won.
First, the pug’s version. “I see
he’s a sucker for a right; so I steps
upon mo toes, and land one on his
pan. I flattens his schnoz and he
goes down for th« good old fash
ioned K. O. He's a„ cold as a fro
zen fish. I cops the dukes!
The Professor’s acount: The
challenging pugilist, analysing his
opponent’s lack of powers forth
with elevated himself on his pedial
ciegits, and smote the unfortunate
quite vociferously on the phsiog
nomy, w'ho in a stupor, had to
borne fro rnthe arena. Mr. Palooka
then emerged dominant.”
