Who shall be the next president of these United States may be
some query, but Congressman Harold Knutson has started the wise
ones to scratching their heads. Mr. Knutson proposes no less a person
than Congressman Hamilton Fish of New York.
Well, let us see just what that might mean. We are not proposing
Mr. Fish. We are just examining the case. During the World War,
he served in a regiment that saw service. There you have the service
man and the veteran of foreign wars in one. Congressman Fish is a
Republican, as might be concluded fhen he is proposed by Congressman
Knutson, the Republican whip of the House.
Here is more: Congressman Hamilton Fish was the very popular
commander of a Negro regiment in the World War. The congressman
is also known to be a man of considerable means, and a person of a
commanding social station. He knows his politics. He is a pleasing
Take a few more facts. The Roosevelt majorities in states like
New York, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois were about equal to the Negro
If Col. Hamilton Fish can command the purse strings of the money
masters; if he can divide the soldier vote; if he can paint a glowing
picture of “This Way Out” of the panic; if he can reclaim the Negro
vote to the Republican Party; who but Hamilton Fish will be the next
president of the United States?
Surely the cause of Col. Fish will be well managed by Congress
man Harold Knutson, who, in turn, feels particularly friendly to colored
MORE OF RICHARD B. HARRISON
Aside from being the great actor that was revealed to the public
after he was sixty-five years old, Richard B. Harrison was nationally
known as a friend. He was personally acquainted, until he stopped
traveling some twelve years ago, with nearly every Negro preacher in
the country who had a congregation to exceed 200 members.
The last time he was in St. Paul prior to coming with “Green Pas
tures,” he came to see his friend, Rev. Henry P. Jones. Incidentally,
he gave an entertainment that netted about the car fare from Chicago
As a dramatic reader, Mr. Harrison’s work was so clever he never
seemed a reader. He lived his parts. At that St. Paul entertainment,
Mr. Harrison read Paul Lawrence Dunbar’s “Little Black Baby Wif
Sparkling Eyes.” At the end of the poem, he rolled and coddled the
imaginary baby until it went to sleep, and then carefully tucked it away
in a supposed crib.
There was such mastery in the presentation that there seemed to be
a real baby in Mr. Harrison’s arms. So true was the art that a five
year-old in the audience piped out, “Mama, where’s the baby gone?”
The five-year-old was Woody Mills, and Mr. Harrison asked for Woody,
now grown to manhood, and received him in his dressing room the last
time he was in St. Paul.
Another circumstance attesting to Mr. Harrison’s realism occurred
in the same performance. Mr. Harrison was reading “When Brother
Moses Puts the Rousements On.” The number is the story of a very
powerful backwoods preacher.
The janitor of St. James church was a person who thought Rev.
Jones was a good man, but “too high ferlootin.” When Harrison got
to the high pitches of “Brother Moses,” the janitor poked his head in
the back door and listened through the presentation. When the enter
tainment was over, the caretaker asked the officers why they did not
get the bishop to send that preacher here.
It is real skill for a performer to obscure the skill. That and real
friendship were Harrison’s assets.

Mumps usually occurs between
the ages of five and fifteen. The
glands at the angle of the jaw,
the parotids, are the most fre
quently involved. However, the
disease may affect only the glands
under the jaw or those under the
tongue. As a complication, the
testicles in the male may be in
Mumps is classed as an acute
infectious disease because it is
transmissible and usually occurs in
epidemics. The germ that is re
sponsible for the disease has never
been isolated. However, it has been
shown that there is one, even
though it cannot be seen under
the microscope. It is present in
the secretions of the mouth,
throat, and likely the nose. The
chief method of conveyance of this
disease is by direct contact. Like
wise, anyone who comes in contact
with articles soiled by the patient
may carelessly carry the disease
to himself or to others. Bed cloth
ing, towels, handkerchiefs, etc.,
soiled by a patient having mumps
may retain the germs for from 10
to 20 days, and thus offer oppor
tunities for transmitting the dis
ease to others.
The disease itself begins from
two to three weeks after the first
contact. The glandular swelling
usually reaches its height in about
three or four days, lasting alto
gether about five to ten days. Both
sides may be involved simultane
ously, or, as one improves, the
other may be involved. The fever
and prostration is similar in its
variability to other infectious dis
eases. Similarly, the complica
tions, such as pneumonia and otitis
media, and others, are much like
those of any infectious disease. A
frequent complication, spoken of at
the beginning of this article, is the
orchitis which, if bilateral, will
There is no specific treatment.
The general rules of all infectious
diseases are applicable—rest, diet,

Contentment, God’s peace, and
I strive not for the unattainable
For these are God’s
And I am merely one of His
Content am I to resign myself
Which He, with sacred hands
Has placed upon this earth to be
Like all the flesh upon the earth
I’ve known regret and sin and
But know I not it now
For I have gained forgiveness for
Which deep in sin was steeped.

Brain and Skin Shrinkage
As early as the thirty-fifth year l
the brain starts shrinking. The'
endocrine activities all start to sub
side, gently as a rule, sometimes
around forty-five. The end of the
upgrade is reached by the ear soon
after the thirtieth year; its keen
ness wanes measurably thereafter
and tends to decline progressively
but slowly. As the skin dries and
toughens it loses Its fine receptiv
ity, too; and, as you know, the
normal skin starts to become mere
hide in the early forties.—Golden
