of his ever-increasing reputation as
the Brown Bomber, to his army
days. Louis knew hungry child
hood, early disappointment and
heartache, bitter defeat at the
height of hig fame, but these ex
periences molded the champion in
to a man ag well as an athlete. He
has become an American institution :
Not only has he held champ- |
lonship longer than any boxer
since the days of John L. Sullivan,
but whether winning or losing. In
peace and in war, he has said and
done the right thing at the right
time. The qquiokly terminated

of Louig and Schmeling, the quick
decisive defeat of Lewis, Galento,

I warded recently the Legion of
! Merit by Major General Clarence H.
Kells, commander of the New York
Port of Embarkation. According
to the citation, his services to the
Army "ntailed considerable risk to
his boxing future as the champion
heavyw-eight of the world, but he
willingly volunteered such action
rather than disappoint the soldiers
who desired to see him in the ring”
Margery Miller, the author, saw
her first championship prize fight
at Ine age of fifteen—the dramatic
second Louis-Schmeling bout. Since
then she haB avidly followed every
major heavyweight fighter, either
from the ringgide or through the
newspapers. As a student at Wel
lesley College, from which she yas
graduated with honor8 last May,
she spent her weekends at the ring
gide In Boston, where the boxing
enthugiastg soon accepted her as
one of their own. This friendship
with the insiders of the fight world
stood her in good stead in writing
JOE LOUIS: AMERICAN. In New
York she hag been receiving much
publicity for her complete and hon
est picture of the champ. The New
York Times has published a long
interview with her, and the Daily
Mirror a feature article.
She hag told Louis’s story simply,
clearly, and directly, for she real
izes that Joe’g life has been one of
those rare storieg which words can
tell but not improve. Ita publica

Have you ever noticed that whenever
two trains pass, freight or passenger,
a trainman will signal, with hand or
lantern, to the trainman at the rear of
the other train?
This is not merely a friendly gesture.
Each Ttian makes a careful visual in
spection of the other's train while it
passes. Then he signals that all is well
■or that he has spotted some defect.
"This is just one phase of a continuous
"check and double check" system. All
Union Pacific trains are thoroughly in
spected before leaving terminal points
... all station agents check each train
as it passes. Even track crews, along
the right of way, are alert to spot any
sign of trouble.
Thus, Union Pacific trains are checked
time and time again as they transport
passengers and freight over the Stra

MINIMUM WAGE DILI,
GETS NAACP SUPPORT
Washington, DC.,_Leslie Perry
of the NAACP Washington Bureau
testified Nov. 1 before the House
Labor Committee in support of the
Pepper-Hook 65c minimum wage
bill. Thig legislation >vould raise
the minimum wage of all unskilled
laborers covered by the Fair Labor
Standards Act of 193S from 40c an
hour to 65c. After two years the
minimum would automatically be
raised to 75c hourly. Moreover, a
minimum wage would be extended
to groups now denied wage pro
tection, namely, persons employed
in packing, canning and processing
agricultural and fish products for
shipping in interstate commerce.
Although indorsing the principle
of the legislation, the NAACP said
that an amendment was needed to
protect Negro workers from wage
differentials based solely on race.
Under the bill industry committees
made up of representatives of man- !
agement. labor and the public are
empowered to raise the minimum
wage to 75c even before two years
have elapsed, if it finds that the i
industry in question can afford to
do so. It is also authorized to

Healing of the Mind
By l)r. J. B Warren
Most patients have the same
amount of brains; but something
happened, likely in early child
hood, that gave some a slant
on life different from other peo
ple. So, just as a surgeon finds
it necessary to open the abdo
men to find the exact cause of
th: symptoms and so bring
about a cure, so does the psychi
atrist find it necessary to go
down deep into the conscious and
unconscious self of the patient to
find the cause of the mental twist
or notion that prevents the pa
tient from being like, and living
with, normal people.
