At THEIR first breakfast in Lin
wood, Ellen Hamilton asked
■ anxiously, "John, will you look up
your Uncle Comstock? Or shall we
wait for him to call?”
John’s lip twitched. "Let’s get
settled first, dear. And aren’t you
expecting Lucille Smythe and her
father soon? You’11 be busy.”
"John, I’ll certainly have time for
Uncle Comstock.”
Ellen set out to find him that day.
He wasn’t in the phone book, so she
consulted the city directory. Corn
stock Whitney Hamilton resided at
33 Reber street. Ellen took a taxi
across the river, down Main street,
across another rather smelly little
river, to a strangely rural looking
"You must be wrong,” she said
to the driver. 'Tm looking for the
residence of Mr. Comstock Whitney
‘That's it, ma’am.” He pointed
to a tumble-down cottage. “But,”
he grinned, “if you want to see old
‘Ham,’ look for him in front of
Pete’s Place at the east end of the
bridge. He's held down a bench
there for twenty years.”
“Are you sure you’re not mistak
en?” Ellen asked frigidly.
“Ma’am, everyone in Linwood
knows those old fixtures in front of
Pete’s—swappin’ lies and spittin’
There’s old Ham, old Joe Horner—”
“Never mind,” Ellen said. “Take
me there.”
That night she said to John, “You
should have seen how overcome
poor Uncle Comstock was. I felt
so ashamed! Your own uncle, sit
ting on that hard old bench with
those horrid men! It’s weeks since
he’s seen a barber. He was speech
less when I told him who I was, that
we're living on Prospect avenue and
that we insist on his moving in with
us. I don’t suppose he dreamed
anyone would rescue him."
John blinked. "Are you sure we
can make him happy?”
“Oh, yes! He’ll love being in this
house, having nice clothes and know
ing really congenial people.”
John smiled. “Set a frog on a
golden stool. . . .”
“What’s that?”
"Nothing,” John said. “When do
we move him?”
Ellen considered. Lucille Smythe
would be in town the next week on
her way east. She was a bit snooty.
Her father would be with her—he’d
once lived in this town. Ellen had
seen pictures of Lucille’s father, a
dignified old gentleman with a point
ed white beard.
“Uncle Comstock will come at
once,” Ellen said firmly.
They left Uncle Comstock’s cot
tage just as it was. He wouldn’t
need anything there. He was silent
on the way to Prospect Avenue.
“He’s simply bewildered,” Ellen
whispered to John.
uncle Uomstock looked sweet in
his new clothes. Ellen supervised
the barber's work. A white mustache
and pointed beard made him posi
tively distinguished. After dinner
he said he wished he'd brought his
plug of chewing tobacco. Ellen pat
ted his hand. "Darling, John has
some good cigars.” He smiled wist
He did just as Ellen said. “I won
der what he’s thinking,” Ellen
sighed. "He seems so pitiful and
wistful, doesn’t he?”
“More every day,” John said.
Lucille was due Saturday. At
ten she phoned from the station.
Ellen found her quite upset. “I’ve
lost Daddy. He went out to talk to
the baggage master—and now he’s
They looked about and gave up.
John met them for luncheon and
they shopped. There was a bus tie
up, and they walked across the
bridge for the Prospect Avenue bus.
As they approached Pete’s Place,
Ellen saw five or six old “fixtures”
on the bench. She thought of poor
Uncle Comstock and shivered.
Suddenly her blood froze. Uncle
Comstock was sitting right there
with the others, chewing tobacco!
Desperately, Ellen walked and
talked fast, calling Lucille’s atten
tion to a landmark across the street.
They were safely past when Lucille
exclaimed, “I’ve dropped a pack
“I’ll run back,” Ellen said quick
ly. Then her heart sank as she saw
a man rise from the bench, pick up
something from the curb and start
toward them. But it wasn’t Uncle
Comstock. It was another old “fix
ture” who approached them.
“Why—Daddy!” Lucille gasped.
“I didn’t see you. What are you
doing here? Getting the latest on
the town?” She laughed nervously.
“Daddy always talks to everyone
Come along. Daddy!” He was verj
dignified, but he looked pitiful, wist
ful. Lonely. Like Uncle Comstock.
“John,” Ellen said later, “what's
the rest of your little poem, ‘Set a
frog on a golden stool’?”
"Guess,” John grinned.
"Is it. ‘Back he’ll hop into the
“Well, it’s true,” Ellen admitted.
“We'll let Uncle Comstock have
Pete’s bench again,” she smiled.

Star a Home Baked Cake When You

1JMHEN friends and relatives
** clamor to have first chance at
entertaining your husband or
brother home from the wars, a pro
gressive welcome-home dinner is
often a happy solution for the prob

texture. Even if you haven’t a big

easy fudge nut cake, for instance,
is a lavish dessert. Just cut it in
squares topped with stars of whip
ped cream. Make the cake itself

sugar; sweeten the whipped cream
with corn syrup. An easy way to
make the stars is to stamp the top
of each square with a star-shaped
cookie cutter and then fill in the
design with whipped cream.

Nigerian Struggles
(Continued from page 3)
intensely exploited by monopoly trading corpor
ations such as tbe United Africa Company, This
subsidiary of Unilever and Lever Brothers, one of
the world’s biggest monopolies, exercises virtually1
complete control over the purchase of agricultural
products and the sale of imported goods.
The colonial government offers every facility to
these companies and has built railroads, roads, har
bors and docks for their ships to transport products
| fro mthe hinterland to the sea. Thus, although the
natives still have the land and produce the crops,
the foreign capitalist, possessing strategic economic1
powers, fix the prices to be paid for their agricul
tural products as well as the prices the peasants
must pay for imported foodstuffs and manufactur
| ed goods. Since the peasants are forced to grow a
small number of specialized cash crops, they do not
produce enough food for themselves and must pur
chase their food supplies. While prices for their
products have been kept down, the prices for all
they must buy have soared almost two-hundred per
cent during the war vears.
Now the colonial government is reaching out to
rob them of their ancestral lands. These events
have stirred up the natives, united them, awakened
their national consciousness. The Nigerian peas
ants have engaged in heroic struggles against the
imperialists. At Aba in December 1929, 30,000
l peasant women participated in a demonstration a
| gainst the imposition of a head tax in which 83 un
armed women were shot down and 87 wounded by
the colonel butchers. At Oro in 1933, 12,000 peas
ants demonstrated against the excessive taxation,
which takes more than 20 percent of their income.
The insistent demands of the peasant masses for
agricultural reforms, democratic liberties, self
government, relief from taxation, economic secur
ity and national unification can only be achieved
through an agrarian revolution, the overthrow of
imperialist rule and the elimination of monopolist
control over their economic life. Who will lead
this inescapable revolutionary / struggle ? Neither
the peasantry, nor the colonial bourgeoisie or petty
bourgeoisie. “The peasantry, the largest numeric
ally and the most atomized, backward and oppress
ed class, is capable of local uprisings and partisan
warfare, but requires the leadership of a more ad
vanced and centralized class in order for this strug
gle to be elevated to an all-national scale. The task
of such leadership falls in the nature of things upon
the colonial proletariat, which from its very first
steps stands opposed not only to the foreign but al
so to its own natinal bourgeoisie” (Trotsky).
Frm its emergence as an organized force, the Ni
gerian proletariat has stepped forth as the leader
of the masses in their fight for national freedom
and social liberation. The labor unions appear to
have been the dominant factor in the development
of the nationalist movement and in the struggle a
gainst the British exploiters and oppressors.
By comparing Nigeria to India, we can see what
a colossal leap forward this formerly backward
country of Africa has taken under the spur of nec
essity. In India the nationalist movement lias
been dominated by representatives of the big bour
geoisie and the petty bourgeoisie (Gandhi and Ne
hru), while the labor movement has up to now play
ed a subordinate role. In Nigeria, however, from
the first organized labor has played a decisive role
in the nationalist movement and given a model ex
ample of militant and intransigent struggle.
This is the best surety of success in the future
struggles of the African people. The revolutionary
alliance of the workers and peasants is the only
power that can smash the stranglehold of British
