Here Is PROOF—
Makes Electricity CHEAP!
Since 1932, the Nebraska Power Company
has furnished electricity for Lincoln's water
pumping plant located at Ashland, Nebraska.
The only reason Nebraska Power Company
electricity is purchased, according to the
manager of Lincoln's publicly-owned electric
plant, is because Nebraska Power's elec"
tricity costs less than the city's own electric
plant could produce it. Also, Lincoln pays
less for Nebraska Power electricity than it
pays to the state hydro-electric system for
power to supply the Lincoln air base.
That s the best proof that Nebraska Power's
experienced business management means_
to you—good electric service at low cost! It's
another good example of what is meant by
YOUR ELECTRIC SERVICE IS GOOD...ADD CHEAP!

C. Goodlett, Pilgrim Baptist, con
ducted the services with music by
the Pilgrim Choir. He preached a
sermon that left nothing to be de
sired in the way of spiritual enjoy
ment. As for the choir, it sang
as though spiritually inspired.
An excellent choir as it is, Sun
day evening it was unusually su
perb in its rendering of hymns and
spirituals so well known to Church
goers. It may be that the very
popularity of the numbers render
ed had something to do with the
pleasing way in which those pres
ent received tem, yet, had they not
been so beautifully rendered by

that this writer would have heard
so many words of praise for it

CORNBREAD, PORK AND GRAVY
ARE SIMPLY MADE FOR ONE ANOTHER
There are some foods which
have an affinity one for the oth
er, just like moon and June 1
Coinbre''',1 pork and milk gravy
ere a i that appear together
in peri harmony. We think
that a nice pot of greens go well
with this group, if you’d like to
make it a quartet.
You probably need no advice
on the pork n’ gravy but just in
case you do, here’s how. Fry the
I pork until it is well done and the
extra fat is thoroughly cooked
out of the meat. Remove the
meat from the pan and pour part
of the fat into your fat salvage
container. Then here's a trick to
make the gravy witl rut a lump.
Put the flour, salt and pepper in
to a small jar and add cold milk.
Cover and shake vigorously un
til the flour is thoroughly blend
ed. Pour this mixture into the
drippings in your frying pan and
stir until thickened.
Perhaps you have a favorite j
cornbread recipe but we’d like '
to have you try this one. It is
made with whole wheat flakes,
the kind you eat for breakfast to
give you pep. This vitamin for
tified cereal adds a swell nutty •
flavor and extra vitamins too!
1 cup millc
3 tablespoons sugar 1 cup flour
2 eggs, well beaten 3 teaspoons baking powder
V/i cups vitamin fortified whole V2 teaspoon salt
wheat flakes Vi cup yellow corn meal
Blend shortening and sugar thoroughly. Add eggs; beat well.
Add vitamin fortified whole wheat flakes and milk, let stand 10 min
utes. Sift flour, baking powder, salt and cornmeal together. Stir into
first mixture; mix well. Bake in greased pan in moderately hot oven
(400F.) about 30 minutes.
Yield: 9 squares (8 x 8-inch pan).
Don Redman today is a great musical star, leader of a famous
band, and creator of some of the country’s top tunes and ar»
rangements, but it all came about through Don’s father who
did it in self defense. Redman, Sr. played in a well-known
traveling street band originating from Piedmont, West Virginia,
and owned 30 expensive musical instruments. When the tiny
tot of two, Donald, started monkeying around with them, dad
decided something had to be done. So he bought young Redman
a trumpet. Before he was three, Don was a child prodigy.
At the exact age of three he gave a public exhibition of his
trumpeting prowess at a hometown musical, and eight thousand
folks, the entire population of the town, turned out.
An expert at the trumpet when
he was three! Then, it isn’t strange
at all that Don could create music
al arrangements when only twelve
years old and play every instru
ment. His first job was arranging
for a seven piece band in the local
At High School he played in
the school band and starred on
the football team in his spare time.
During his second year they made
him a school teacher in the music
department. The Boston Conserva
tory brought out his real talents.
He took three years of counter
point and harmony, and in 1922
returned home to Piedmont to
form his own dance band.
Don’s association with the
Broadway Syncopators from Pitts
burgh made it possible for them
to be the first colored band to in
vade Broadway. Fletcher Hen
derson was the first to recognize
Redman’s genius. Henderson mak
ing records and playing club
dates was just coming up big.
The Henderson outfit, which num
bered 11 pieces and Redman at the
arranging end, were leaving the
Columbia recording studios when
a passerby stopped the boys and
tipped them to auditions at the
Club Alabam (where the Stage
Door Canteen is now). They piled
into a taxi, rushed over to audi
tion and landed their first real
Redman stayed with Henderson
until 1927, then he left to assume
charge of the country’s top outfit,
McKinney’s Cotton Pickers. In
1931 Don organized his own crew
and opened at Harlem’s Famous
Connie’s Inn. It was there that
Redman reached his musical peak.
He clicked solidly with such song
hits as “How’m I Doing”, “Wasn’t
Told To Me 1 Only Heard”,
“Cherry,” (which is still going
strong) and dozens of others.
At the height of his success, the
unpredictable Redman suddenly
retired from bandleading chores
to arrange for Fred Waring,
Charlie Barnet and the Dorsey
Nobody knows why suddenly
on July 8th, Redman decided to
come back into the fold. He
opened at the Zanizbar, has been
there ever since with a coast to
coast wire, and doubling in
Don is an accomplished master
of the classics and his real ambi
tion, he will confide, is to tour
Europe after the war with a 27
piece outfit that will present *
concert style of Negro Jazz.
