BIG MINSTREL SHOW AT THE
The .first of this week, Joseph C.
Herbert's world renowned minstrel
show struck the Avenue Theater, 31st
street and Indiana avenue.
The show is a scream from begin
ning to end, and it has created a great
sensation among the theatrical lovers
on the south side.
The show consists of forty high
class, colored artists, including many
lady artists. It has a great band of
twenty pieces which wakes up the
town every time it heads the parade
through the streets. Lester Carter is
its head funny comedian, and A- J.
McFarland is the silver voiced tenor.
It can be truly said that Herbert's
world renowned minstrel show, is the
peer of all the colored minstrel shows
now ir existence today.
Mr. Tom Norman, manager of the
Avenue Theater, is highly elated over
the great rush of business and states
that the minstrel show is playing to

The heads of Colored colleges and
other educators met with representa
tives of the National Medical Asso
ciation at Nashville last week to con
sider how to raise and maintain high
er standards of education among Col
orede neople, and with particular ref
erence to the study of medicine. The
meeting was held under the auspices
of the Commission on Medical Edu
cation for Colored people.
Sixty persons, some of national
prominence, were in attendance at the
sessions, which were held at Meharry
Medical College, Dr. Green of the
National Medical Association presid
ing. Among the speakers were Presi
dent Hope of Moorehouse College,
Dean Johnson of Lincoln University,
President Durkee of Howard, Presi
dent McKenzie of Fisk, and Dr.
Claxton, former United States Com
missioner of Education. The latter
urged the same standards of educa
tion for both colored and white col
leges, and emphasized the fact that
the elementary and secondary work
must also be improved.
The body in its resolutions adopted
the standard list of colleges as de
termined by the Phelps-Stokes Foun
dation, and urged a re-classification
of all Southern schools with a view of
setting higher standards.

Canton crepe reappeared on the

Many supersitlons are -connected
with the shoe; for Instance, It la
thought unluckly to put either shoe
on the wrong foot. Because Augustus
Caesar was nearly assassinated by a
mutiny one day when he put on his
left shoe first, a saying has arisen
that the right "shoe" must be put on
first unless Its owner wishes to court
misfortune. Pythagoras, old . Greek
sage, told his disciples to put their left
foot Into their baths first. In Anglo-
Saxon marriages the father-in-law
gave the bride's shoe to the bride
groom who touched her on the head
with It to denote his lordly authority.
