Celebrated Musician Succumbs
Home of Sister Noted as
Madame E. Azalia Hackley, the
greatest producer of pageants and
recognized as the race's leading
teacher of vocalism, died at the home
of her sister in Detroit, Mich., on
Wednesday, night, December 13, after
an illness which extended over a pe
riod of six years. Madame Hackley
was one of" the .most remarkable
women in the public life of our peo
ple. For many years her time was
devoted to uplift work, her efforts
being specially centered in concerts
and pageants for the financial bene
fit of schools, churches and other
classes of institutions vital to the
welfare of the race, and there are
many thriving enterprises which can
trace their present success to her aid.
Madame Hackley was born in Mur
freesboro, Tenn., and was 54 years
of age at the time of her death. She
was readed and educated in Detroit,
taught in the public schools of that
city for a number of 'years -and took
a very prominent place iri social and
musical circles. Her maiden name
was Smith. She married Edward
Hackley in Denver, Colo., arid later
went to Europe, where she completed
her musical education. For several
years she made her home iri^Phila
delphia, Pa., and later she moved to
Chicago, Where she established a
studio on Calumet avenue. In her"
line as a producer she had no equal.
It was coriiiripri for her to, enter a
community, assemble 600 or 600
"green" voices, train them in folk
songs and choruses in an unbeliev
ably short time and present them in
pageant along with soloists, duos and
larger groups, all selected from
among them. Her power over these
groups was almost uncanny, and the
members of, her "classes" often
ranged in age from 3 to 70 years.
Her activities covered the entire
United States and her name and fame
has been a household word all over
this country for years.
Madame ilackley was the author
of several volumes touching on social
and musical -matters. Most promi
nent among her books was "The Col
ored Girl Beautiful," which had a
large sale, and her ''Book on Pag-
eants,'^containing a complete de
scription of her methods. She was
a beautiful woman, physically and
morally, and was one of the few tal
ented individuals in public life who
scorned the press agent method of
gaining publicity. For years Madame
Hackley taught modesty in dressing.
Despite the fact that she was abun
dantly able to patronize the best
modistes she was always plainly
though neatly clad, and "was often
referred to- as "The Lady in Gray" on
account of her predilection for that
color in both her private and profes
Madame Hackley was one of the
most accomplished pianists of her
time, and her compositions were nu
merous and of a sort which demon
strated to a great extent her sympa
thetic temperament. She was a mem
ber of the Detroit Musicial Society
and of other organizations and was
a graduate of the Denver (Colo.) In
stitute of Music. .Aside from other
relatives she is survived bjr her sis-

Viteran Triples Pre Wet Wage
Before the war, Enosk E. Olein
was a farmhand, earning the usual
lew wages paid for that work. His
army life as corporal, Co. A, 158th
Infantry, left him with hernia and
pyorrhea. It was evident .that he
could not go back to the heavy work
of farming. He was, therefore?
called into the Fargo suboffice of the
United States Veterans' Bureau, C.
T. Hoversori, spbdistrict manager,
and advised to take training as an
He was placed in training with the
Electric Construction Co., Grand
Forks, N. D., and after a successful
tryout period was given special train
ing in auto electrics ^w.
He also took a corresponderice
course in starting, ignition, and light
ing systems, with one of the leading
state universities to supplement his
practical work with the above firm.
Mr, Olein successfully' carried on
this }ine of training and was reha
bilitated by the Veterans^Bureau on
August 1, 1922, whereupon the firm,
which was pleased with his work,
placed him upon their own payroll at
a wage of $25 a week, which is three
times his average wage as farmhand.
In probably seventy-five per cent
of the class of disabled veterans
trained in industrial establishments
they succeed so well th$t the torn it
self employs them and there is no
need^for them to seek employment
Thfs illustrates that the practical
thorough training afforded by
the Veterans' Bureau, places these
trained veterans in a far better eco-
i^lfian they"wo'uld have
enjoyed if there had been no war.

The United States Veterans' "Bu-
reau has completed a survey of the
employment situation among reha
bilitated vocational students of the
"The employment situation among
our rehabilitated vocational trainees
is very satisfactory,'* Colijhel Charles
R. Forbes, Director of the Bureau
stated today. "The, establishment of
the Employment Service the Vet
erans' Bureau is justified by the re
sults obtained to date. When it is
taken into consideration that approx
imately 20,980 men have been reha
bilitated, it is surprising to note that
only a negligible number of graduate
vocational students are unemployed."
The employers in business and in
dustry have evinced the fine spirit
of helpfulness and have shown a
practical appreciation of these vet
erans' war time service by giving
preference to these vocationally
trained men. These employers are
being rewarded by faithful and loyal
service on the part of the'rehabilitat
ed trainees and that their services
are satisfactory is shown by the fact
that only a very small percentage
has.failed to meet the retirements of
Many of the veterans who have
been placed in employment by the
Veterans' Bureau have obtained po
sitions which from the very, begin
ning salaries^ above the average.
For instance, in one district, four of
the men who were placed in employ
ment during the. months* of August
nnd September received salaries of
$200 per month. Two other men are
receiving $250 per month and ten
men are receiving $150 per month.
/There are :v now approximately
96*800 men in vocational training and
as these men complete their training
from month to month the Employ
ment Service will obtain positions for
them. These irieri, on the average,
are receiving more than $400,000 a
year above their pre-war wages.
They have been trained.to overcame
their vocational handicaps* imposed on
them by their"~disabilities. The train
ing-which, they receive is an assur
ance to the employers that they will
be able to carry.on successfully, in
the trade or vocation for which they
have been trained.
