CITY UNION OF THE USHERS
Jack Hall, reporter
Duo to other engagements last
Sunday, made it impossible for
mo to attend the regular monthly
meeting. I’ve been informed by
some of the officers though due
to the inclement weather of the
flay the attendance was up
to par, but however, they had
quite an enjoyable and likewise
profitable meeting. Quite a few
reports came in, some full and
others only partial, as next Sun
day being our Cabinet Meeting,
which is to bo held at the residence
of Mr. Charles Trimble, 22nd
Seward St., 3:30 P. M.

expected io make a full report
of everything as the time is here
and we must know wlhere and
how we stand financially.
Poor delegate, have you got
good shoes or religion ? Here’s
'hoping you have both cause I ex
pect youl” need them.
Whilo 'making my usual Sunday
night visits, I stopped in quite
a few churches and to my surprise
I noticed some, one big church in
particular, had one usherette on
the job. I inquired about the
president, but up to this writing
she hasn’t given me an answer as
to his whereabouts. A nice con
gregation, quite a few visitors in
cluding your reporter for a few
Only one little usherette to
greet or receive us. Well I won't
say any more about it, but the
president should see to it that
with all the ushersettes belong
ing to his local there should be
more than one on duty Sunday
night. Just a bit of helpful cri
ticism that’s all.
Mrs. Summers thanks a lot for
your patience. That'i goes for you
to, Bethel Baptist, our friend has
got his jelopy (ear) out of the
will-call a little late, but it’s out
now and we will be able to get
around to pay you that long de
layed visit as soon as we can get
a little gas.
Allow me to say it was nice of
you to drop in over to Christ Tem
plo to at least offer your service
during the meetings of this week.
We say again, we thank you.

Tuesday Julp 4th, will be the
163rd Birthday of the United
States of America. Many Col
ored people have wrong ideas
about the Fourth of July. I have
heard many conflicting tales about
This year I have asked differ
ent people, “Why do we celebrate
July 4th as a holiday?” Some
have said that it was the day that
Negro slaves were set free. Oth
ers have said that Negroes should
n't celebrate this day because it
was the day that our grand pa
rents were put into slavery. This
is a very misleading opinion. The
purpose of this article its to state
the truth briefly.
The first slaves were sold in
America about 1619, so slavery
began 167 years before July 4th
because important. Until July 4,
1776 this country was under the
power of England. These Thirteen
Colonies had much self-govern
ment but all of their national pro
blems were settled in London.
England instead of Washington, D.
C. as they now are.
The English government insist
ed that the colonies should pay
taxes and obey all orders that
came from England, whether they
liked them or not.
After much disputing and some
war, the colonies appointed a com
mittee to draft a declaration of In
dependence which would state that
these colonies were free and in
This Declaration of Independece
approved and adopted by the
Continental Congress on July 4,
1774. So this has become the
birthday of our country.
As a race, we were set free by
the Emancipation Proclamation,
January 1, 1863 which was 87
years later. We celebrate our
emancipation on different dates
because it became effective in
action only as different states
recognized the power of this pro
