Summer Theatre
Closes 14th Season
ATLANTA, GA. — With a star
studded cast, made up of student
and factulty actors of exception
ability, the Atlanta University
Summer Theatre this week ended
its fourteenth season with three
successful performances of the
stage and screen success "The
Barretts of Wimpole Street.”
Under the direction Anne M.
Cooke, he seasoned cast in three
acts and five scenes brought to
the stage of the Little Theatre
the love story of Elizabeth Barrett
and Robert Browning as written
by Rudolph Besier. In beautiful
costumes of the Victorian era, the
play was preformed against a
background, designed by Artist
Walter A. Simon of New York.
The set gave authenticity to the
drama of he upper middle class
English family, wwhich is dom
inated by the stem and unforgiv
ing father, Edward Moulton Bar
rett, superbly played by Raphael
Mclver of Atlanta.
Billee Geter Thomas, also of At
lanta, who brought to life the in
valid sister, Elizabeth, won new
laurels for her dramatic ability.
And continuing to receive the pla
udits of the audience for their sin
cere preformance were Marian
Davis of New Orleans, La., who
played the spirited Henrietta:
Miriam Harris of Atlanta, in the
role of Arbel: and Sara Braswell
of Monroe, Ga., who skillfully
portrayed Bella,
As the handsome romantic poet.
Browning. Edward N. Palmer of
the Summer School faculty, made
his first appearance with the
Summer Theatre group. Magda
lene Harris, also a newcomer from
Savannah, Ga.. made the role of
Wilson important ar.d Henry
Thomas, of the Summer School
faculty, was convincing as Dr.
Chambers.
Mr. Barrett’s son’s were played
by Charles* Stewart of the Sum
mer School faculty, who provided
many of the lighter moments of
the evening; Vernon White of Fort
Worth, Texas: Preston Cochran of
Gadsden. Alabama; and Marvin
Collier of Chattanooga. Tenn. Well
cast were Edmund Kemp of At
lanta as the pompous Henry Be
van;and Theophilus Neal of
Greensboro, North Carolina, as
Captain Surtees Cook.
Eloise Usher headed the pro
duction staff, and Eddie Sandiford
was technician.
Lime Essential
Lime is essential on acid soils for
>roper growth of many crop and
j lasture plants. To promote this de
•ired growth, sufficient lime should
se applied to change the acid condi
don to a near neutral point. Under
nost conditions in the upland area
die addition of lime to the soil also
provides calcium for plant growth.
Commercial fertilizer, incorporated
with the soil management practices
previously mentioned, is essential
tor continued high crop production.
Every crop harvested for grain,
forage or other use removes plant
food from the soil. Soils under con
tinuous cropping systems, coupled
with erosion, lose their plant nu
trients faster than they can be re
placed by nature.
Urban League
Urges Action
Rent Program
An action program aimed at
protecting the interests of racial
groups, through close study of the
new Housing and Rent Control
Act of 1947, was urged by the
National Urban League this week
as the social service agency called
upon its fifty-six local units to
follow through with a vigorous
campaign.
Local Advisory Kent <~ontroI
Boards7 become key factors in de
termining the policy under which
the Housing and Rent Control Act
will be administered in each com
munity,” Reginald A. Johnson,
housing coordinator of the Nation
Urban League, stated. ‘‘It is im
portant that all national and local
organizaions and community lead,
ers wire or write the Governor of
their stte requesting the inclus
ion of racial and minority group
representatives in the list of
names recommended by him to
the Housing Expediter. These re
presentatives will be appointed
to the Local Advisory Rent Con
trol board in each defense-rental
area’’.
“It would be well for organiza
tion and commuity leaders to sup
ply the names of several responsi
ble representatives of minority
groups from each defense-rentad
area,” Mr. Johnson continued.
"Let the Mayor and the Rent Con
trol Director know the desire that
racial representatives be included
on your local Advisory Rent Con
trol Borad.”
The Urban Leagues Housing
Coordinator emphasized that the
local advisory boards “May re
commend raises in rents at any
time or even removal of all rent
controls from the entire area
This means situations may arise
in which there the lifting of rent
ceilings or decontrols may be
justified as far as the general po
pulation is concerned. But such
actions may find Negroes and
other minorities squeezed between
a vise of extreme housing short
ages on one hand and ’sky-limit’
rents on the other.”
To ward off “an already admit
tedly threatening situation facing
ill-housed renters,-’ the National
Urban League urges:
a. Organizations or individuals
cognizant of the extent of the
housing supply as exists for min
ority groups in contrast to that
for the general population write
to Mr. Frank Creedon, National
Housing Expeditor, indicating the
impact of decontrol unless it is
based on the' availability of hous
ing fof all elements of the popula
tion.
b. In each rent control area,
groups and organizations should
become familiar with the facts
about the supply of housing, and
keep the situation before the local
Advisory Board so that they will
not recommend decontrol unless
there is housing available for all
groups in the population.
VETERANS GET CHOOSE
The League further urged that
the following action should be
taken to give preference or prior
ity to veterans of World War 11.
especially in seeing that the man
ner in which is “publicly offered’’
and any efforts to restrict Negro
veterans from occupancy in any
particular housing unit will have
serious implications light of the
penalities involved for infraction
of these regulations.
a. Community leaders should ac_
quaint themselves with the regul
ations governing public offering.
b. Community leadership should
be alerted in the protection of the
legal rights of Negro veterans in
exercising their preferential
status for occupancy in new hous
ing regardless of where it is lo
cated.
In this connection, the National
Urban League called attention to
a fine of $5,000.00 for willful vio
lation of the Veterans Preference
Clause of the new housing act.
“Negro veterans should put this
regulation to work if they are
denied preference because of race,
Mr. Johnson said.
•Ahoy’, Not ‘Hello’
"Ahoy.” not "Hello.” was the ex
perimental greeting used when the
first commercial telephone switch
board and exchange was installed
at New Haven, Conn., in 1878. It
had eight lines and served 21 sub
scribers.
Population in Palestine
Since 1940 Palestine’s Jewish pop
ulation has jumped from 163,000 to
630,000, immigration and natural in
creases being about equal. These
figures are about 12 times that of
1919. The Arab population Is ap
proximately 1.110.000.
Knockabout Chairs
If you have knockabout chairs In
the sunroom or on “sabbatical
leave” from the summer porch and
$heis vapearance is not everything
you desire, consider making simple
slipcovers for them. Use strong fab
rics like ticking or oilcloth in fast
colors, so they can be tossed regu
larly into the washing machine.

S, W. R. Should I go on carry
ing the torch for this man with
the little boy brain or should I j
drop him? Hasn’ his actions prov- ;
en that he doesn’t love me? Dur
ing our last vacation together, he j
wasn’t very affectionate. He never
attempted to kiss me. I did all the
kissing. When we were out with
other couples who were affect
ionate, I had to listen tp his re
port on the army and politics.
When we left college this June
he was still cold. But since then,
I have received several short, un
affectionate letters from him stat
ing that he wanted to hear from
| me. How must I take him ?
| Ans: He's aroused and is in
earnest but he intend to restrain
his emotions. An education is
foremost in his mind and he is
going to complete his college
training before getting seriously
involved in a love affair. You’re
putting on too much pressure.
Be content to keep this relation
ship on a friendly basis.
S. T. D. Will my sister change
her ways Or get crankier? My
wife and I rent from her. We
have a little house back of hers.
She doesn’t want us to have com
pany to come and see us. Now
we don’t want to sit around alone
feeling lonesome. If she doesn't
change what should we do?
Ans: Look around for another
place to live. Sister is not going
to change her set ways and if you
and your wife have any social life
at all you must find a new lo
j cation.
I
M. O. M. I received a letter two
days ago threatening to tell my
husband abou me and another man
Will this person tell my husband
j or just trying to scare me?
i Ans: In this case — you had
beter scare easily. The individual
is dead serious about squealing
and I don’t think it would set so
well with your husband/
N. O. L. I am married to an Ex
GI. We separated for three months
and are back together again. I
have faults, but do I do think
that I did my part. I never worked
a day in my life until I married
him and I have worked every day
thereafter. I got the bad end of it.
Recently I met a man and love
him with all' my heart. He is the
only man I have ever loved. I
don’t neglect my home though.
So Mr. Abbe’ this is the score—
add it up and try to start me on
the right road.
Ans: A love triangle equals dis
aster when it involves married
people. You can t love another
man and be on the square with
your husband too—that is defin
itely neglecting your home. Give
your whole heart to your husband.
Otherwise, face the facts and have
an understanding about your
future. Do not let your apparent
love for the other man influence
you to get your freedom.
L. M. T. My little step-son wets
the bed at night. Is he weak blad
dered, lazy or crazy ?
Ans: Weak bladdered.
F. T. I wish my letter published
in the paper. I have a small farm,
some nice cattle, hogs, horses and
poultry. It all belongs to me. I
am a man 28 years, old and I am
going with a girl 16. Every time
I visit her, she asks me to marry
her. Does she want to marry me
for love or wealth?
Ans: She wants to marry. She
hans’t given much thought to
neither love nor wealth. The girl
is twelve years your junior and
is mighty young to be getting
married. You should not commit
yourself until you go with her
at least six more months. At the
end of his time, you both will
know if it is a case of love or in
fatuation.
