RACE PREJUDICE GETS SET
BACK:—President Roosevelt has
spoken out again against racial
hatred; the Dies Committee has
found subsersive activities on the
wane in the United States; Gover
nor Lehman has asked the New
York State Legislature to ban dis
crimination in business affected
with public interest and labor un
ions; the move to open Alaska to
refugees has gained ground. These
are the latest signs that America is
keeping its head.
The President, in his message to

Congress on the State of the Union >
declared “Doctrines which set I
group against group, faith against
faith, race against race, class a
gainst class, fanning the fires of
hatred—This is the danger to which
we in America must begin to be
come more alert.”
FEAR CANCER’S AID:—“Six
ty percent of cancer victims in this
country are women; eighty percent
of these can be cured,” says Mrs.
Marjore J. Illig, Commander of the
Women’s Field Army against can
cer. Ignorance, apathy and fear
are contributing causes to the high
cancer rate. A program of educa
tion that will reach the masses is
necessary to overcome this danger
ous and now greatly publicized
plague. Visit your health lectures
and consult your physician.
SOLACE IN SONG:—We all re
member the old statement, that
“Music Hath Charms”, and we find
this to be true in the home, the
church, the concert hall and in most
public gatherings. The song, “Mo
ther of Mine” always brings peace
and satisfaction to the singer, as
well as the audience. The man who
wrote this song now lies in a grave
down in the peaceful Ohio valley at
Cincinnati. So William F. Collins
74, left behind a wealth of music
that will linger on and give solace
to the sorrowing and sentimental.
MEN, MISERY AND GOLD: —
This country has a financial crash.
We were on the gold standard. It
is now gradually working out of
the chaotic state in which we found
ourselves a decade ago. Now com
es the “Prince of discord” a mem
ber of the Chase National Bank
who makes the proposal to relegal
ize the private possession of gold.
It would be like the government
tossing a Golden Apple” into the
Wall street for the spectators to
fight and scramble over.
HANDS ACROSS THE TABLE:
Silken gloves and hardened palms
must meet in common handclasp,
each recognizing the rights and
worth of the other, is the warning
found in the statement of Dean
Hattie of Howard University, and
formerly United States judge in the
Virgin Islands, when he told the
delegates to the Omega Psi Phi
Fraternity in convention at Wash
’ ing, that “Intellectuals must make
up their minds once and for all as
to whether they want to march for
ward and with the masses of the
people or maintain social exclus
iveness from the masses.
WHITE— CHAUVINISM— The
Negro is not alone in his criticism
of the screen production of “GONE
WITH THE WIND”, for the Cath
olic Legion of Decency and the
Communistic press have joined the
forces which has declared Margaret
Mitchell’s book to be a justification
of slavery by the south. The Leg

low moral character of the play.

MY NEW ASTROLOGY READ
INGS ARE READY!!!
L. H. G.—I am nearing the age
of forty and I want to get married.
Everything I get out of life is so
little compared to others. When I
begin meeting people, every woman
that comes my way tries to make
me and that seems to disgust me
Will 1 ever meet the type girl 1
would like to marry?
Ans: It can be done. But bro
ther, you won’t find the type you
are searching for in dance halls and
beer gardens. Join the church and
meet the girls you wish to go with
through this source. Lay off the
rum yourself and decent girls will
seek your company. As it is now,
you are classed as a good time fel
low and the best girls are afraid
of you. A marriage is indicated
some time during the end of this
C. R.—I bought a nice gift for
my fiance’ for Valentine but she re
fuses to let me escort her to the
Valentine dance. Should I give
her this present or take it back?
Ans: Give it to her. The chief
reason that she refuses you the
honor to escort her to the dance
was that you waited until all the
other girls had made their dates
and she was still waiting for you
to speak up. So one young man
asked her, and she accepted. Next
time you had better act quickly and
don’t depend on her going with
you without asking her first.
B. C.—I was laid off my job last
week and 1 do try very very hard
when I work. Will I get someone
to help me to get work soon ?
Ans: You are sure to get work
to do in a couple of weeks. The
chief reason you were laid off is
that you weren’t qualified to hold
down the job that you chose in the
first place. You actually need to
take more business training. Get
work and finish your course at
P. C.—For the past few weeks I
have making ready to take a trip
to Florida. I received a rather odd
letter in the mail yesterday and I
wish to know if I should go or post
pone this trip altogether?
Ans: Go right ahead and make
the trip to Florida. You are ex
pected and the people you are go
ing to visit are making plans to
show you a nice time during your
visit. The letter you received was
written by a very jealous young
lady who isinterested in the same
young man you are—she is sorry
she wrote the letter, and you would
be much better off never to men
tion it to anyone.
R. E.—Does this person whom I
think I am desperately in love with
love me enough to come back ? Why
did he break away?
Ans: He felt that he had to
make a change. He could marry
you without money enough to live
on and he knew if he remained near
you that he would do so. Keep
your trust in him, but I don’t think
he will come back the month he
promised. I contact a marriage in I
your life during one of the warm 1
months of this summer.

TOO MUCH MEAT
A Negro hired by a movie studio
was informed he was to do a com
edy scene with a lion. “You get
in this bed," said the director;
"we’ll bring the lion in and put him
in bed with you. It will be a wow.”
“Put a lion in bed with me!”
shouted the Negro. "No, sah! Not
a-tall! I resigns right heah and
“But,” exclaimed the director,
“this lion won’t hurt you; he was
brought up on milk.”
“So was I brung up on milk,”
wailed the Negro, "but I eats meat
now. You-all let me out o' heah.”—

One of the fine team of elephants
at a traveling circus developed a
bad cough, and the keeper, after
taking counsel with the local vet,
decided to dose the animal with a
bucket of water into which a whole

The following day the proprietor
of the circus met the keeper and
Inquired after the animal,

"Sally?" replied the keeper. "Oh,
