you feel a persistent sickening sen

beneath the ground you trod in
your daily rounds there is a delay

unhappy and apprehensive, you
have lots of company. Most people
feel as though they were living, in

In the matter of race relations
the optimist can add up a lot of
so-called gains. Negroes aren't jim

appears to be habitable but which
has the fatal shortcoming of being
built on shiftless sand! Recent out
breaks of anti-Negro violence, the
oruinous resurgence of the Ku Klux
Klan. the re-election of the most
vulgar representatives of virulent
racism-the Bilbos and Talmadges—
all this has served to remind the
thoughtful persons that the gains

I put it down as an incontro- j
vertible truth that freedom of the

You know it and I know it. It’s in
the capitalist cards. Industry is
working against the backlog' of
orders today. But the time is com

up and production will have to de

crushing blow, but with a series of}
blows like a ball bouncing down- !

They quit buying a new pair shoes

as they’re taken off the payrolls.
So more shoemakers are laid off
and more tailors. Unemployment
How can you expect race rela
tion gains to be secure in a society
as economically precarious as this ?
How can you hope for prejudice to
die when men's hopes and plans
are periodically mangled and torn
by the anarchy of an outmoded so
cial system? I wash some of these
'little by little" people who are so
horrified when we talk of Socialism
and organizing the working class,
and who claim to be inching along
toward tolerable conditions—I wish
some of these people would tell
us how the capitalist system can
avert a smash-up. Or how the in-!
evitable smash-up can fail to hurl
all society backward, perhaps as
far as barbarism.

ed to this: either Producer Chand

rings around any other skater she
had featured and thus steal the
show, or after realizing she was a
potential money maker, by under
paying her as a star performer
on the theory that it was a ‘break'

FALLING HAIR (Continued)
From the bottom of the hair
follicle we find the papilla or mo
ther of the hair. It is from the Pa
pilla that the new hair is created,
as it is here we find the nerves
and blood vessels.
The sebaceous or oil glands emp
ty into the hair folicle. If the duct
which leads from the sebaceous
gland to the hair follicle becomes
clogged or stopped up: we must
not expect a healthy head of hair.
We should mention the arrector
muscle which is located just below
the sebaceous gland. This muscle
does just what the name implies.
It holds the hair shaft in place.
Perhaps you are wondering just
why we have gone so much into
detail where the sebaceous gland
the papilla and the arrector mus
cle are doing their work as they

FEAR TO BE HAPPY,
SAYS BILL ROBINSON
A recipe for lifelong happiness
is given in the October American
Magazine bv dancer Bill Robinson
who says that fear and suspicion
are the basis for much of the un
friendliness existing in the world
The motto of the 68-year-old ve
teran Negro trouper is avoid sus
picions and be a giver, sharing
your time, energy, money, and
happiness with those less fortun
"If we go around suspecting and
fearing the people of other coun
tries, of other races and creeds, we
are going to set up forces that will
keep us from making their friend
ship. and them making ours, ever,’
Bill states. “I tell you. its a won
derful thing to meet people with
Bill is aware that a lot of peo
ple think him foolish because he
has given away much of the three
million dollars he estimates he has
earned in 60 years of professional
But he explains, “there are plen
ty of other folks who think I’m a
pretty good fellow because I have
helped them along when the going
was tough. I feel a person has got
to be giver.
“The way I look at it, I can
work and work and dance a million
miles and make a million dollars,
and the only good money is to me
is to keep mv family and friends
wTell and happy; to give me a home
and a good car to ride in. and all
the ice cream I can eat.
“Taking an interest in other peo
ple and sharing happiness with
them keeps me young. When I
think how little I started out with
and how much I have today, it
seems like a miracle and I have
to share it. In a way, I get a share j
of all other people's energy and
youth when I make them happy
and take an interest in them”.

We are proud to know that the

DEMPSEY SAYS LOUIS
CONTENDERS ARE SCARCE
Not since the time Jack Johnson
was heavyweight champion of the
world, has there been such a dea
rth of contenders for the crown,
claims Jask Dempsey in an exclu
sive story in the September issue
of SPORT, the new magazine for
sports spectators. “Just as in John
son’s dav, there isn’t a single con-1
tender of real ability on the hori-1
zon”, reports Dempsey.
Dempsey believes that Tami
Mauriello. who is scheduled to go
with Louis Sept. 18, isn’t the type
of fellow likely to beat Joe.
In addition to the Dempsey story '
the September SPORT contains a
full-length biographical sketcch of
Joe Louis by Jack Sher.
