A. N. C.—I am 21, have been
married four years and my hus
band is 29. He was away from
home in service Up until about a
year ago. We are living in the
buu-e with my parents ami it
seems like we have worn out our
welcome. We have been planning
to build our home but we can’t
get materials. What should we do
stay on here or try to build any
way so we can be happy? My hus
band is the sweetest man in the
Ans: There is no one house
large enough for two families to
bve together in and be happy, es
pecially if they are related. You
and your husband will always iSe
welcome in your parent’s . home
but the time has come for you to
find a little nest of your own.
Building is probably out of the
question for you right now. With
a little effort you can find a place
to live..you 11 find most renters
give preference to ex-servicemen.
You and hubby will be happier in

V. V.—I need your help. My
cousin sent me a nice coat for the
winter. It is too small for her and
she is buying another for herself.
I have heard that she has TB and
I am undecided about wearing
the coat now but I surely do need
one. Tell me what must I do?
Ans: Send the garment to be
dry cleaned and you need have no
further fear of it being contamina
ted with germs. It would be foolish
to throw a perfectly good coat
away when you need it so badly
Write your cousin a nice letter
and let her know how much you
appreciate her thoughtfulness.
M. H. S—I am 17, been mar
ried but didn’t stay with my hus
band. I met a man, 38. I had one
date with him but he is married.
He will give me anything I want
and says he cares for me. Now I
have received a letter from my
husband wanting me to come to
him. Tell me what to do, go to
my husband or let this man take
care Of me ?
Ans: It’s only a matter of a
short time until th6 married man
will fade- out of the picture. He’s
not as ‘hopped’ up over the affair
as you are. Your husband is sin
cere and really wants you back
as his wife. Turn your attentions
his way and see if you can patch
things Up and find happiness to
Abbe’—Only a few words to
express my thoughts to you for
the kind w’ords you sent me in
reply to my letter. I have really
been happier since I wrote you.
May God’s blessings go with you.

world for writing to your service
and I wish that I couid write you
every day. L. W.
C. M. S—Please help me. My
husband is out of town going to
school. He has been gone since
September. He writes me about
twice a week and tells me not to
sit around home waiting on him
to get out and find someone to
take me out and if I find someone
to love, to go ahead. He hasn't
sent me one cent since he has
been away and I don’t know what
to do. We were like love kids be
fore he left and I don’t know what
to make of his letters.
Ans: Remain loyal to him re
gardless of what he writes. You
are a married woman and yoif
must keep your self respect. Men
sometimes write things they do
not mean and I assure you that
it would injure his pride for you to
begin running around with other
fellows. He’ll be home for the com
ing holidays. Talk your problems
oyer and come to a definite deci
sion about your future. But as
long as you are married to him.

of True magazine. Returning to his
birthplace in Natchez, Miss., af
ter a 25 year absence. His is the
experience of an American Negro
traveling from the Mexican bor
der to the Atlantic seaboard, by
train. The time is 1940. His hum
iliations began when he reached
the Texas border, “the beginning
of the Land of the Free and the
Home of the Brave”. His longest
stopover was in Natchez the
place of his birth. “What I saw
there made me wonder why I had
wanted to see and feel it all a

SALUTE Stetson Kennedy gets
behind the scenes in Georgia in
his article, “Inside Georgia’s Klan’
in the November issue of Salute
Magazine. He tells why most of
the Georgians are opposed to the
KKK but are helpless to do any
thing about it. Examining the re
cords of some of the men who
held high political office? in the
past he reveals why the Klan lo
gically expects great gains in
membership and increased influ
ence under Talmadge.
CORONET “Ham and Eggs
Georgia Style”, has lead Negroes
in Georgia up the road to econo
mic security, writes Jane Floyd
Buck in the Coronet Magazine for
November. It all came through
the vision of one man. Otis Sam

Georgia Agricultural Extension
Service. Over thirty years ago,
O'Neil, a graduate of Fort Valley
State College and Tuskegee In
stitute, began leading earnestly
ambitious Negri farmers out of
the uncertain existence of hit or
miss hog raising and farming. In
1916 and in each succeeding year
there has been a “Ham and Eggs’
show of farm products n the Ft.
Valley College auditorium. This
year “bulging succlent hams” and
eggs sized to the fraction of an
ounce and gleaming whitely”, on
display, were of a quality to in
terest merchants dealing in first

Tony Donovan, Negro lock expert
of Harlem, says Ebony Magazine
in the November issue. Donovan is
one of only two licensed Negro
Key makers in New York City. He
learned to crack safes 35 years

received its first real taste of Cal

issue of Police Gazette magazine.
Calypso songs are made up on the
spot by singers, balad like, who
report on news and scandal. Bill

introduced into this country sev

says Durant, in his article. “The
