That’s What Thin Run Down Atlantic
City Man Wrote
There are tens of thousands of ex
ceedingly thin men and women who
need more weight and need it badly.
Most of these skinny people need
better health—more vigor and ener
gy and something more that we all
strive to attain—a fresh, clean and
clear complexion.
One underweight woman, exceed
ingly thin, gained 10 pounds in 22
days with McCoy’s Tablets and
doesn’t have to worry any more about
her figure. I
Mrs. Alberta Rogers, thin, run
down and weak, *|uned 15 pounds in
six weeks and is thankful for Mc-i
Coy’s.
McCoy takes all the risk—Read
this ironclad guarantee. If after tak
ing 4 sixty-cent boxes of McCoy’s
Tablets or 2 One Dollar boxes any
thin, underweight man or woman
doesn’t gain at least 5 pounds and
feel completely satisfied with the
marked improvement in health—
your money will be returned.
Just ask for McCoy’s Tablets at
any drug store in America.

EXPLAINS BARRING NEGROES
IN CHURCH
The Rev. W. S. Black*hear of St. Ma
thew’s, Brooklyn, Say« It Is a
Matter of “Policy”
Rector Denies Racial Bias—Asserts
Negro Congregations Near
By Need Them
Denying that racial prejudice was
the reason for his announcement on
j Sunday that his church “did not want
'negroes’ money or negro members,”
! the Rev. Wm. S. Blackshear, rector
j of St. Matthew’s Protestant Episcopal
' Church, McDonough Street and
[ Tompkins Avenue, Brooklyn, said, in
an interview yesterday, that his
'action was dictated by “church
policy.”
“There are two other Episcopal
I churches for negroes in the neigh
borhood,” he said, which negroes
should attend. These churches need
[ negro members. St. Matthew’s is a
'white church and it is desirable that
only white persons should attend its
1 services. We have a few negro mem
bers, however, who may remain, if
they wish.” ./
I At/the service on Sunday the Rev.
i Mr. Blackshear read the following
iparagi'aph from the church bulletin:
| “The Episcopal Church provides
'churches for negroes. Several of
| these churches are within easy reach
of this locality. They are in need of
the loyal support of all true negro
'churchmen, therefore the rector of
this parish discourages the atten
dance or membership in this church
of the members of that race.”
| There were four negroes at the
' service. A young negro woman rose
and, with tears in her eyes, left the
church. The other negroes sat silent
ly with bowed heads. Several white
members of the congregation audibly
displayed their astonishment at the
announcement.
I The Kev. L. (J. uade, rector oi
St. Barnabas’ Protestant Episcopal
Church, Belmont Avenue and Fulton
Street, one of the two Episcopal
churches for negroes in the neighbor
hood, evidenced no surprise last
night when informed of the Rev. Mr.
Blackshear’s announcement. “Mr.
Blackshear,” he said, “has indicated
his attitude toward the colored
churchman on previous occasions. I
do not care to make a direct criticism
of his action without giving further
thought to the matter. I will say,
however, that I believe churches
should be open to and free for all
people and races, just as Jesus Christ
loved all races and showed prejudice
to none.”
Although the Rev. Mr. Blackshear
said that his policy in barring ne
groes has been endorsed by the ves
try of the church, Howard D. Joost,
senior warden, when asked his opin
ion of the matter, said: “I would
rather not express an opinion.” No
statement on the subject could be
obtained from Bishop Ernest M,
Stires, w’ho is out of town.
The Rev. Mr. Blackshear was in
stalled as rector of St. Matthew’s
Church on June 23, 1929. A dissen
sion in the congregation, which
caused a number of the members to
withdraw, was provoked by the ques
tion of his succeeding the Rev. Dr.
Fredic W. Norris, the retired pas
tor. It was then alleged that a com
mittee of three out of twelve vestry
men and tw'o wardens drew’ up the*
contract and obtained the Rev. Mr.!
Blackshear. j
He was born in Anderson County,
Texas, in 1893, the son of a Southern •
cotton planter. He studied theology
at the Virginia Theological Seminary.
As captain of Compay H, 360th In
fantry, he participated in the St.
Mihiel drive and was cited for con
spicuous bravery.
