Thus. Dr. Park J. White, local

concluded an unusually timely ad

the 24th annual convention of the

The sessions, with mere than
2,000 delegates, were attended by
10 members of the racial group, all
of whom enjoyed all of the fea

One of the pleasant signs 0f the
time is that women are becoming
more and more fastidious in the
choice of scents. Ten years ago
there was a frenzy for perfumes
that were strong enough to work
in section gangs. You would pass
a lady on the street, or she would
waft into a bus, and your nostrils
would be assailed and insulted.
That’s not the case now.
The girls are going subtle When
they find a perfume that pleases
them they stick to it. They don’t
mix them. Which means that the
entire wardrobe becomes impreg

Fretful Wife
Asks Sue For
Some Advice
Dear Sue Leaf:
My husband and I have been
married a little more than five years
and we have a fine baby girl.
He has started running after wo
men and very seldom stays at home.
When he does spend the night at
home, he does not sleep with me. I
have done all a wife can do to make
him happy and to help him.
Do you think he will ever be the
same as he was?
Perhaps, now that you have a
child to confine you at home, your
husband is taking advintage of
you and doing the things he has
wanted to do all of the time. There
is another angle to this proposition
of having a baby in the home after
so many years. You, no doubt, have
transferred your affections to the
baby, where you, all of this time,
have babied him. I would be will
ing to bet that he is jealous, as
men are, because he does not get
all of your love and attention now.
You will just have to keep on like
you started with him and let him
think he is the whole cheese all
of the time and everyone and every
else Is secondary.
I hope you get along all right
with him. It is somewhat disheart
ening to know that a man treats
you all right until you go right
through the shadows of death for
him and then he starts playing with
your love and devotion. He really de
serves a killing but you will have to
smile and pretend it does not mat
ter and all too soon, it will not
Dear Sue Leaf:
I have been reading your column
for sometime and I think it is
very interesting.
This is my problem: I am in love
with a young man who says he loves
me. He and my father had a quarrel
last summer. Do you think we will
get along ?He is a very fine fellow
and everyone seems to like him,
especially the girls but he does not
pay any attention to anyone but
me. Do you think we will get along
all right?
I am glad you enjoy my column.
You do not seem to have a problem
at all, so don’t go around looking
for trouble or you may arely find
some somehow, even though every
thing is going smoothly now. If you
want to keep the young man for
yourself, close your eyes to every
thing else and be happy and self
Dear Sue:
My beloved went away on a boat
and left me brokenhearted because
we had had a misunderstanding
before he went away and were not
as close together as we had been.
Another girl had told him an un
truth and he suggested that we quit
for a while.
When I started going with him,
I let another boyfriend go that I
liked very much. He has been
coming to see me since the other
fellow left. What do you think I
should do about them?
You write like a little girl and if
you are, you should not be so deep
ly involved with the fellow that you
have a "regular”. You should be
having clean fun with all of the
fellows and be able to pass up things
of this kind. A fellow does not care
much for you if he will let some
one tell him something about you
and believe it. He is better forgiven
and forgotten.

Dr. Watson In
Strong Address
At Kansas City
powerful and determined voice re
sounded in the Second Baptist
Church here Sunday when Dr. J
B. Watson, president of Arkansas
State College pleaded the cause of
the financially and socially under
privileged Negro girls who are
being victimized by unscrupulous
Dr. Watson spoke to a very im
pressive rally in behalf of the Big
Sisters’ Home, a philanthropic in
stitution in Kansas City for the
education and uplift of underprivil
| eged young women.
Tracing the case of exploited wo
manhood in historic perspective, the
distinguished educator exposed the
ill treatment to which women have
been subjected continually in the
past. He blasted the terrific ex
ploitation which Negro women have
experienced in the past and are
experiencing today because of theii
financially and socially underprivil
edged position.
“That the race people themselves
are keeping ahead in this scheme ol
exploitation is most deplorable,*
said Dr. Watson. In his opinion, the
subject is one of extreme impor
tance to us all of today. The time
has now come when men and wo
men of vision and Christian Chari
ty must act in order that through
out these United States, underpri
viledged Negro girls will obtain a
better chance for education, em
ployment, and respectable living.
Dr. Watson substantiated his plea
by referring to the moral and
spiritual foundations on which
Christianity is biuTt up. He pointed
to the attitude of Christ, to the
humble and lowly, how Jesus came
“seeking and saving that which
was lost,” and how He strongly de
nounced the attitude of the Phra
sees, Scribes and other vested in
terests which kept down and trod
upon the rumble and the lowly.
