You can grumble all you please but this world is wicked and it is get ting more wicked every day. I White folks are all right when you know them, but you’ve “got to know them first.” Business is good in some sectio.no o I the country and “rotten” in most of the other sections of this great gov-1 eminent of ours. Parts of the bodies of married wom en. which were shown only to then husbands in the privacy of their bed rooms, may now be seen by anybed on the streets of the city without th asking. A white woman is suing a hospita for giving her the wrong baby at a hospital, where she was confined. They told her it was a boy and sh finds that she has a girl on her hands. It is great to be a boy when you are born. r r" a •.. A QUESTION OF CANDIDATES. Hon. William G. McAdoo, son-in law of the late Hon. \Y oodrow \\ ilson, has, in an extended deliverance de clined to be a candidate for the nomi nation of President of the United States upon the Democratic ticket. This attitude on his part is looked upon from two angles. One is that he sees the hopelessness of the strug gle for the same honor in a contest with Governor Alfred H. Smith, of New York, and from another as a'b’d for the distinguished Governor of New York State to do the same thin0' in order to promote harmony within the ranks of the Democratic Party. The two statesmen represent in terests diametrically opposed to each other. Governor Smith is a pro nounced "wet”, and Mr. McAdoo is a pronounced “dry.” They disagree too, upon other great issues confront ing the country. Governor Smith is a Roman Catholic, and as such is op posed by the Ku K1*jx Klan. The situation is interesting and it seems to foreshadow the election of a Re publican for President. It seems a foregone conclusion that unless Gov ernor Smith, of New York, sees fi to eliminate himself as candidate for President, the split in the Democratic Party will be disastrous. The Republican Party is also hav ing its troubles. The Lowden boom is assuming widespread and alarming proportions and it is "on the cards’ that the administration does not favor this distinguished Illinoisan. Vice President Charles G. Dawes is said to be a personal friend of ex-Gov ernor Frank G. Lowden. The Hoover boom is looked upon with favor. In the meantime, the familiar form and features of Hon. Charles G. Hughes appear upon the horizon. He is un questionably the ablest and the best individual as yet mentioned. He mild ly protests that he is too old to rur for President, but his admirers re mark that he does not say that he i: too old to serve as President. A man of his kind and calibu would make an ideal President. W< regard him as the ablest statesmai now before the American people. H» is the only man mentioned, who couh neutralize and probably eliminate thi “Al” Smith majority in New Yrorl State. Still, we shall see what w ' shall see. YVe wonder if the Repub lican leaders will be far-seeing enougl to draft him for service in the nex campaign for President of the Unite1 States? Some people make efforts to help otner people. That Is what our patrons do when they pay us what Is du* us. HAVING passed satisfactorily tbe recent Virginia Bar Examination, tbe undersigned takes this method ol an nouncing to bis Iriends and tbe general public tbe opening ol an office at 301 Mechanics Bank Building for tbe Gen eral Practice ol Law. LORENZO C. WHITE Radio Night (Continued from Pa^e ]) ir.g big sports and news events. Outstrip Former SI»ow3. t The 1927 show promises to far out strip its two predecessors in size, character of exhibits and entertain ment features. There will be attrac- : tions for men and women, young and old. and children. In addition, the show has been extended one day in order that the colored people of Rich mond may have an opportunity to visit it. The fifth and closing day has been set aside for them. Finishing touches on preliminary: details were added yesterday at a meeting of all the chairmen of the 1 dealers’ committees and representa-j tives of The News Leader. Booths are being constructed and' decorations placed in the big build-1 ing formerly occupied by the Used Car Exchange, Meadow Street, near Broad. This work is being pressed in order that every detail will b? com plete when the doors are thrown open to the public. Daily Prize Awards. Apart from expensive and com plete entertainment features, public interest is expected to be heightened I by the daily award of prizes, valued in an aggregate at more than $1,000. Nearly all of the exhibitors have agreed to contribute the prizes, which will be given away. Each will per tain to radio, and most of them doubtless will be eagerly sought by all spectators. They will include re ceiving sets, loud-speakers and other equipment. B. H. lloffman, chairman of the publicity committee, said today that the following firms already have agreed to donate prizes, principally receivers: Dabney & Bugg, Hoffman & Good man. Howell Brothers, the llalladay Company, The Kaufman Store, Price Brothers, Tower-Binford. Others are expected to swell the list. Mr. Hoffman stated that local deal ers are reporting the arrival of new ’model receivers and the latest thing in equipment. Scores of different kinds of sets will be on display. This year’s show is expected to eclipse that .of 1926 because the Used Car Ex change quarters offers far more space. 1 Shepherds (Continued from page 1) nesday morning, September 14/ 1927.
