“MY EASTER PRAYER”
(by T. Hodges Goodwin)
Lord on this bright Easter morn,
I bow to make my plea;
In humble adoration;
For what Thou’s done for rfte!
Thou rose up on this morning,
Many hundred years ago;
’Cause the world was dying:
And Thou did love it so.
Included in Thy rising:
Was such a worm as I;
he root of all Thy sorrow:
The cause Thou had to die!
I humbly how dear Savior
The only way I know; i
To thank Thee for Thy blessings
My feeble love to show!
Forgive my every weakness:
Grant things I fail to ask;
Bless when I vainly say things—
Help me to do my task!
Let love’s assimilation.
Bind every creed and race;
That each may love each oher:
And seek Thy Holy place!
Lord this sweet Easter Sabbath:
Let me my vows renew;
Help me arise this Easter:
To love no God but Thee!
Father give me firm desires.
To walk the narrow' way;
Make all my years be Holy,
And not just Easter -day.
Lord grant this prayer I pray,
My truest—surest friend;
Let each day be my Easter—
For Thine Own sake—Amen!!!
—T. Hodges Goodwin.

5 PLANS TO SING BERT
(by DelorfN Calvin)
NEW YORK CITY (Calvin's News
Service) This week, Louis Jordan,
sensational bandleader playing the
Apollo Theatre, was busy getting
ready for a grand comeback into
the Paramount Theatre June 13th.
He just closed his first engagement
there February 27th, after three
weeks of wowing Broadwayites. To
get ready he’s ordering summer
uniforms for the boys and searching
for new tunes. He plans to sing
"That Couldn't Happen to Nobody
Else but Me", a song Bert Williams
made famous in the old days.
His return Paramount date is a
record no one else has set. It
seems that Harry Levine, theatre
talent selector and Bob Weitman,
managing director of the Paramount
house, agreed that no one but Louis
Jordan has stimulated so their pat
ronage in the last five years—that
is no one but Frank Sinatra! So.
they booked him and his band to
come back in less than SH months.
In addition, they're trying to find
a way to get the inimitable Jordan
in pictures under tneir own Dan
ner. They claim that every star |
they built has signed with another
studio. Harry James with MGM: J
Frank Sinatra with RKO, and so on.
Their scout, Borris Kaplan, inter
viewed Louis during his three weeks
at the theatre and suggested that
his studio might cast him in a
comedy role as a musician and an
actor. But they put in their bid to
be sure they get him for Paramount
Meanwhile. Louie, untouched by
the fuss the Paramount is making
oer him, is still going on as sched
uled—doing theatre dates until June
13th. Next week, Louis Jordan and
band play the Howard Theatre in
Washington then one nighters thru
Virginia and North Carolina, to the
Paradise in Detroit, April 27th .
