BLIND HON
CASEjSDELAYED
Secretary Enlists Aid of
C. U. Law Dean to Save
Her Work.
Charlotte E. Hunter, secretary of
the Harriet Tubman Aid for the
Blind, Inc., will appear before Judge
Aukum in Municipal Court tomorrow
In an effort to save the undertaking
that represents an investment of
thousands of dollars and five years’
work without salary.
In a petition filed in the court the
D. H. Johnson Co., agents for Arville
J. Thoma, claimed the institution
owed $380 rental. This claim is de
nied in an affidavit filed by Miss
Hunter in which she claims that all
rent has been paid up to last Octo
ber. when the rental of $45 for the
month was tendered to the company
»nd was refused without explanation.
The case was called yesterday, but
was continued until tomorrow to give
attorneys for Miss Hunter time in
which to file new briefs. She is be
ing represented by the firm of Toomey
& Toomey.
The real estate company, as agent,
Is seeking to evict the blind institu
tion from the property it now occu
pies at 1416 Eleventh street.
The property originally was the pri
vate residence of Miss Hunter. Last
year the home was wrested from her
by the foreclosure of a mortgage. She
leased the property from the Thoma
Interests after losing it and has op
erated since by paying rent, she claims.
Miss Hunter, a retired colored school
teacher, claims to have donated $15,
000 of her private fortune and that
other thousands of dollars have been
Contributed by outstanding citizens..
Vincent Toomey, dean of the law
Cchool at Catholic University, is ex
pected to argue the case. Prof. Kelly
Miller, former dean of Howard Uni
versity. is president of the blind aid
organization.

FEDERAL ACTIVITIES
UPHELD BY MAYORS
Local Self-Government Uninjured
by New Program,
Survey Says.
Local self-government has not been
injured by the great increase in Fed
eral activities under the New Deal and
remains the Nation’s “greatest bul
wark against Fascism,” according to
the United States Conference of
Mayors.
The conference’s opinion was de
rived from a recently completed sur
vey of Federal-city relations, particu
larly in the fields of finance, credit,
public works and relief. Authors of
the survey were Paul V. Betters, exec
utive director of the organization, J.
Kerwin Williams and Sherwood L.
Reeder.
"Our Federal Government,” they
declared, “has shown no signs of
taking advantage of the depression to
expand its powers at the expense of
State and local self-government. True,
the States were ‘short-circuited* by
the new Washington policy of dealing
directly with the cities in some in
stances, but no attempt was made to
supplant the States in dealings with
the localities. None of the new Fed
eral-city relationships has trespassed
upon city charters, State laws or State
constitutional provisions.”
The survey predicted Federal-city
contacts would not vanish with the
return of business prosperity.

AMAZING NEW SOAP5
Banishes “Winter Gray” Almost Like Magicl
Now—no longer need you have gray
washes during these dull winter
months, thanks to this amazing new
soap discovery, Oxydol,
Oxydol acts on an utterly new prin
ciple! Developed by the makers of
gentle Ivory soap, it is the result of a
patented process which makes mild,
gentle soap much faster acting ... a
formula which makes it 2 to 3 times
whiter washing than less modem
soaps, by actual test
You soak clothes just 15 minutes to
the tubful... no scrubbing, no boil
ing . and white clothes wash so
r'
white you 11 be amazed! Even the
grimiest spots come snowy white
with a gentle rub!
Thus, you get “June Day” washes
even in the dead of winter. Washes
that smell so sweet and fresh your
friends will envy you.
Yet Oxydol is so safe and mild that
every washable color comes out bril
liant, fresh! Even sheer cotton prints,
soaked through 100 consecutive
washings in Oxydol, showed no per
ceptible sign of fading. Get Oxydol
from your dealer today!
