A TOP FAVORITE WITH OUR ARMED FORCES
OKAY WITH THE CIVILIAN FOLK TOO!
“Revelry with Beverly” . . . that’s
how they greet the comely Beverly
White who is a "Pin-Up” choice
with talent and voice. A favorite
with those in the armed forces and
the civilian crowd too, Beverly has
appeared at the Club Regal, Colum
bus, Ohio; at the Pershing and
DuSable Lounges in Chicago, and
featured at the Onyx Club, Cafe
Society, in New York — she was
"acclaimed” by music critics when
she opened the now famous Cabin
In the Sky nitery In Chicago. An |
alert cameraman “caught” Beverly
in the two intimate poses above
and upon interviewing her learned
that she was the first Negro girl to
fill an engagement at Carnegie Hall
in New York City where for a num
ber of years she was the featured
vocalist with Claude Hopkins Or
chestra. Miss White has appeared
with both W. C. Handy and Duke
Ellington in concert work. In St.
Louis Beverly was a sensation at
the Club Riviera. At present she is
available for bookings through
Associated Booking Corporation,
745 Fifth Avenue, New York, N. Y.
And, yes, a deluge of fan mail from
G.I. guys keeps Beverly up most of
| the night. That’s her hobby!
Phifer, and Robert Bates will be
leaving Saturday for DesMoines
have a nice time boys!
Johnie Malloy is back in the fair

Three weeks have gone by in

Three weeks that have passed in
Dixie with the common people of
Dixie mourning their addopted son,
Franklin D Roosevelt, dyinjf on
Pine Mountain in Georgia as they
mourned their native son Abraham
Lincoln, dying in the nations capital
city of Washington.
Three weeks that have been like
three centuries of sorrow in Dixie
and still my friend. Rev. George W

that flock of the Lord which he
feeds on Sunday mornings

and our nation over on dry land. By
his heroic and masterful powers, he
crossed them over the Red Sea that
was the blood of our people. The
enemy pursued but God was with
him in his fight. President Roosevelt
like Moses, was leading his people
out of the wilderness into comfort,
peace and prosperity. Generations
of the South will rise up and call
him blessed. In my judgement, he is
the second Abraham Lincoln."
But Dixie's season of mourning
shall become Dixie's season of re
joicing. For the white people and
the colored people of Dixie see that
the Lord laid His hands on Dixie
when He laid His hands on Franklin
UNITING THE PEOPI.E
He laid His hands on Franklin
Roosevelt and He told Mr. Roosevelt
that He wanted him to bring His
children of Dixie together.
Mr. Roosevelt brought them to
gether on the Farm Security Admin
istration projects where white
sharecroppers and black sharecrop
pers, driven off the land by the men
with the hard hearts and the heavy
whips, learned to live together and
He brought them together in the
Southern labor movement where
the cotton mill workers of Gastonia
and the tobacco workers of Winston
Salem learned to sit together in
the same union halls and work out
those human problems which af
, flicted God's children of both races
He brought them together at the
ballot box when thousands of Neg
roes went to the polls to vote after
a Roosevelt-appointed Supreme
Court wped out the Texas primary
law....as once the Lord wiped out the
laws of Babylon ivhich kept His
And now the Lord has left to the
people of Dixie the work that
Franklyn D. Roosevelt started in
'Dixie. We will not fail our dead
brother and we will not fail the
Lord in these days when freedom
knocks loud at the door of Dixie.
We will see to it that all the kids
of both colors, holding flags in
their hands when the funeral train
goes by, shall be educated in decent
schools to become decent citizens
of a decent South.
BLOOD AND SWEAT
We will see to it that all the peo
ple of Dixie who want to stay on
the land will have a piece of ground
and a living. That will be finishing
the job which Lincoln meant to do,
I the job of muzzling the big land
I owners fhose soil is watered with
the blood of black tenants and white
We will see to it that all the peo
ple who want to live in the cities
will have equal jobs at equal wages
whether they be white Southerners
or black Southerners. For nobody
minds shedding sweat in honest
labor, but it‘s time to stop shedding
blood in Dixie.
We will march to the polls with
tens of thousands of our Negro
brothers come election time next
year. We will wipe out of office the
men like Bilbo and Rankin and
Andy May. We will not stop till the
price tag of the poll tax is taken off
We will keep faith with the Lord
and with our native son, Abe Lin
coln, by keeping faith with our ad
opted son, Franklin D Roosevelt. We
will finish up the jobs that were
left unfinished by Reconstruction.
We will build and rebuild. And

of black Southerner and white
Southerner shall not be rejected by
