CAN AN AUTOMOBILE Bl
MADE THIEF PROOF?
Br ERWIN GREER
(President Greer College OX
^ Automotive Engineering)
r ti10 automoile thief is doing *
big business of late, and the po *-v
: /cords show a large increase o‘'sv
that of last year. How then, <’!.'•
the car manufacturer bring our
nore or less standardized er
thief contrivance that will re
prevent a car from being stoi
and wliat will be the character!,
of this perfect loek?
The motorist of today needs b:
a contrivance that can be locked
unlocked from the car seat by
drivel, or ei e something that
automatically remind the driv
its existence before he sta
engine again.
Something which merely ■
the engine from being star
the ordinary way is of abs
no use. FVt example, if th
. starter is disconnected by ta
s owner, ti.u’ would be noth' .
stop two or three men from st
the engine by pi:: king the car v.
the gears m mesli. Why not giv
the thief constructive rather than
destructive work? Let him build
up instead ot tearing auwn. de
struction is much more simple than
construction, and it can be done
with most any tool. Any prisoner,
given time and a saw, can eventu
ally break jail, therefore, If the de
vice will break a connection of
some sort, perhaps something that
would temporarily prevent the en
gine transmitting power to the dif
k ferential, it would be more li' i."
* to confuse the thief than a mor
f locking device, which could easily
he destroyed, and allow the car to
he driven away.
It isn't the fact of getting the
better of a thief with only a few
minutes’ time in which to work 0"t
his getaway. It’s got to be some
thing that will puzzle the skilled
mechanical thief, who has a lor.gw
time in which to accomplish his
work.
The majority of old time motor
ists’ suggestions seem to turn to
wards some device which will lack
the gear in neutral, and by the way,
there are already numerous devices
af this kind in existence, many of
them on«ratpd with a Yale key.
Tuc ksybcle k* ’^ach of the

tion come true. I would lead you in

XLhis Week
(By Earnest Rice McKinney)
(Preston Nev.'s Serv er.)
A MIRACLE happened
in Washington recently.
Something that most of
us have said could not
happen. But it did hap
pen. A group of Negro
women were there to at
tend the sessions of thp
International Council of
Women. Women were
there from all over the
civilized world as well
as from the United
States. United States
women were in the ma
jority. They were run
ning the affair. The
foreign women were
guests. Our own white
women had charge of
all arrangements as to
program, halls, recep
tions, and all the rest of
it, including the seating
arrangements.
!W*
A group of Negrd mu
sicians—our very best
had been invited to give
the program on a certain
night. They were there
all ready to sing. They
discovered that Negroes,
their own people mitid
you, had been segregat
ed. That is, the white
women who run and
manage the Internation
al Council of Women in
this country had permit
ted someone to demon
strate to the foreign la
dies just how “we han
dle the race problem in
this country”. All of
the Negro audience was
all to itself alone
This program had been
arranged to show for
elgn ladies just what
America has contributed
to music. Evidently some
cue—in charge—decided
. hat this was not enough
to show the foreign la
| dies. They must be
shown tha/u democracy
i in these United States
, is confined to whites
1 cnly. They must be
shown also just what
the land of the free and
the home of the brave
has contributed to the
god of hate, prejudice
and hunk *
But the miracle hap
pened. These Negro sing
ers and musicians walk
ed out. There was no
program as far as they
were concerned. This
little group, by their ac- ,
tions, said to the United
States and to the rest of
the world, that at last
the American Negro is
beginning to show the
germs of mass or group
action. This Is the con
summation that white
America has striven a
gainst with might, main
and flattery. All the
hocus-pocus that the
shrewd Nordifc could •
I.
think up and devise has ,
been whispered to Negro j
leaders to get them to
ward off just such an
occurrence as this in j
Washington. i
Some Negroes will say ■
that these Negroes miss- !
ed an opportunity to
show the whites just
what we can do. This is
tommy-rot. The whites |
In this country know
better than we, Just
what the Negro can do.
The outstanding gam
to us from this affair is,
that this group of Ne
groes denied themselves
the pleasure of applause,
congratulation and that
good feeling that comes
to all of us when the
world bows at our feet.
It is this budding con'
sciousness of kind, this
young racial solidarity
that should make us
stop and think before
we say that these Ne
groes did not do the
wise and politic thing.
I hope that more Ne
groes will decide to take
the same attitude when
the same situation con-1
fronts them at some fu
ture date.

Beautiful Hair
Now Within Your Reach !!
CLEOPATRA
THE WONDER OF THE PRESENT
AGE
For years it has been the desire of
the better class of colored people to
have beautiful hair and with this end
in view have tried all kinds of Hot
Comb preparations, and while their
hair became straight, it was stiff arid
unsightly.
Now, with Cleopatra you use no
hot combs and your hair becomes
long, soft and silky, with just enough
wave to be beautiful.
Afcer using Cleopatra for a short
while you can dress your hair in
any style most becoming.
Cleopatra does exactly as we say.
Cleopatra is not an experiment, but
is the result of long and careful
scientific study of the hair and scalp
of colored people.
Cleopatra
is a very high class preparation put
up especially for those who can af
ford and who appreciate an exclusive
toilet article.
As you know, the hair is a tube
with a delicate skin covering, and
once this skin is destroyed the hair
quickly dies. -Now, nothing destroys
this skin quicker than a hot comb
CLEOPATRA
SOMETHING ENTIRELY NEW.
I

and those who have tried this method
know to their sorrow we speak the
truth.
Does not burn the scalp and is ab
solutely harmless. Does not turn
the hair red.
Cleopatra
Relieves dandruff, stops itching scalp
and prevents falling hair.
Cleopatra
for ladies and gentlemen as a dress
ing is in a class by itself and has
just enough perfume to make it de
lightful.
Fine for baby.
Every ingredient used is absolutely
pure.
OUR GUARANTEE
If you are not satisfied with Cleo
patra we will cheerfully return your
money upon your request.
By mai\ one dollar prepaid, a full dU-day treat
ment. Write name and address plainly.
