Up & Down Farish Street
By PERCY GREENE
FARISH STREET SATURDAY
NIGHT! Going to and from my
favorite spots, I got into several
conversations dealing with a num
ber of subjects among them being
that of the lack of news in daily
papers about our boys in the Armed
Services. All hats should go off to
the Jackson Daily News for its ar
ticle about the Negro 'Soldiers at
the Flora Ordnance Plant, which
appeared in its Monday edition.
The story was written in a manner
that should satisfy the most rapid
Pro-Race thinking anywhere in the
county and was superior to any
thing we’ve seen in print about
William Gordon and A. L. Brown,
representatives of the Service Mag
azine, published by the school of

DETROIT, Mich.—(SNS) —
Voted one of the year’s greatest
bands. THE INTERNATIONAL
SWEETHEARTS OF RHYTHM
returned to the Pai'adise Theatre
for a week’s engagement starting
Friday, April 23.
Having used 39 of the United
States as a proving ground for
their rhythmical wares, the Inter
national Sweethearts of Rhythm
have been called by patrons and
theater operators alike “The
Greatest Musical Novelty of the
Century.’’ The personnel, all girls,
includes 16 versatile and talented
musiciaas, plus the director, the
lovely Anna Mae Winbum, who
fronts and sings and Evelyn Mc
Gee, vocalist. Other talented
“Sweethearts” include Pauline
Braddy, “Queen of the Drums,”

First formed as an amateur
dance band at the Piney Woods
School, Piney Woods, Mississippi,
this outstanding talented group
was long jumps ahead of the aver
age orchestra in discipline at the
offset. The girls had learned to live
together, a prime requisite in any
orchestra, because they knew how
to cooperate and work as a unit.
Though in her mid-twenties, An
na Mae Winburn, director of the
“Sweethearts,” is one of the smart
est girl fronts in the business. No
wonder, she has picked a lot of ex
perience in the decade she has
been in the business, learning the
hard way, too.
Miss McGee js one of the few
singers in the world who has learn
ed the secret of literally pouring
herself into the “mike.” She sings
so intimately to the audience that
she has the crowd won over, as in
dividuals, from the very opening
strains of per presentative.
“America’s Ace Girl Swing Saxo
phonist,” Margie “Doc” Pettiford is
more contented playing music than
doing anything else in the world.
Strangely, — and she admits it,—
she was forced to practice by her
Ma, who found it necessary to have
a broomstick handy “just in case.”
The Pcttifords had a family or

“Queen of the Drums” Pauline
Bracidy is one of many featured
artists appearing with the Inter
national Sweethearts of Rhythm.
