By ETHEL HARRIS 115 E. Leigh St., Rand 5773-J To Dot, From Cecelia Dearest “Dot”— I find it almost impossible to nna introductory remarks which will suit uotn of us. This is by no means un usual. It happens rather irequenu., mat my mind is in a quandry, that mV thoughts are muddled and dis cohMrteU. No doubt the ^ ule-UUe lestivities are adding to tins menia. aelemna. 1 think 1 advised you to taKt* as much sleep last week as you could possibly steal and 1 hope you heeded my advice. It was well wonn the time and thought. Maybe our visitors will receive an impression of Richmond, worthy ox notice. Parents and friends were anxious over the arrival of students from the various schools. Jame*‘Cephas walked home from Petersburg, a newly maue Hipna. Harryette Hewin seems pleased to spend a few days witn u*. Harryette, by the way, is an assistant in the Department of Biology at W est Virginia. Reports are in ner favor. Edna Jordan was the first to arrive, having made her first appearance ai Harold’s party, which 1 mentioned in my letter last week. Madelyne Harris, the smiling Co-ed of Howaiu, left not a one of her smiles in Wash ington. Ostensibly they are appre ciatea. ^ , t 1 know Mr. and Mrs. E. C. Burke ait happy to have Emmett, with them' throughout the season. They usually are. Nina Harris, arrived on Sunday from Nashville. Miss Helen Hughes, elder uaugnter of Dr. and Mrs. W. H.

There are several visitors in towD. Notherners, Easterners, and other pointers. Guess I shall have to be de finite next week. Allow us to take this means to extend to these visitors our hopes for a most delightful and well spent season. I really do not have the space but it would be impossible for me to omit one of my favorite groups the ‘We Moderns Juniors’ This most Interesting little concert of.-nisses, are making themselves more appreciated each day. My regardes for a happy New Year Cecelia Miss Wilhemenia Duncan of 115 S. Lombardy St., left early Christmas morning to visit her parents in South Boston, Va. She plans to remain through the Yuletide. The winners in the popularity con test of the kinderarten department of the Osgood Memorial Church were Miss Permelia Alexander, 204 S Lombardy St., and Master R. J. Mc Fee, Jr., 1815 Idlewood Ave. With practically every detail of arrangement completed for the wed ding of Charles Satchell Morris, Jr, dean of Virginia Seminary and Col lege, Lynchburg, to Miss Olivia Sylvester Clark, popular local belle which is scheduled to be staged here at the First Baptist church on Wednesday evening, December 31, at eight-fifteen o’clock social circles in Virginia and throughout the country are evincing pronounced interest in the match. Two thousand invitations have been mailed out for the affair while responses coming from many sections of the nation indicate that a vast throng will be present for the affair. More than three hundred per sons will be in attendance at the reception immediately following the church wedding which will be staged at the home of the sister and brother in-law of the bride-elect. Among the bride’s attendants will be Miss Dorothy Brooks of Roanoke as the maid of honor, her cousin Mrs. Margaret Clark Minor of Chicago, Miss Tessie Davis of Richmond, Miss es Faith and Esther Morris of Ricn mond, sisters of the groom and Mrs. Sterling Brown of Washington, D. c. Little Miss Constance Neeley and Ellaouise Downing will be ftpwer girls. The groom’s attendants will be as follows; best man, his brother, Clarence Benjamin Morris, senior at University of Chicago, ushei*s: Mr R. W. Clark. Prof. Fred Lawson and Dr. E. D. Downing all of Roanoke, Dr. H. P. Weeden of Lvnchburg, Prof. J. C. Bryant of Virginia Seminary and Mr. Romulus C Archer, Jr, of Washington, D. C. It is probable that two of his former colleagues at Virginia State College will participate in the ceremony. As previously announced the Rev. Dr.' Arthur L. James, pastor of the First Baptist church here and president ot the Virginia Baptist State Conven tion assisted by President Vernon N. Johns of Virginia Seminary and Rev. Dr. Charles Satchell Morris. Sr, will preform the ceremony. The beautiful church will be profusely decorated for the occasion. Seven hundred seats have been reserved for special friends of the couple, but ifr appears that this number will be inadequate to accomodate the vast multitude ex pected here from every section of the' country. Directly following the mayor in a leading city, reception Dean Morris and his bride will depart on a brief honeymoon trip East. He will speak at Richmond, Norfolk, Washington. Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York, Providence and Boston. A number of receptions will be tendered the happy couple on mute. Reporters for several of the Negro weekly and white daily news papers will be* here to cover the event. HAMPTON DEFEATS MINOR NORMAL IN CAGE OPENER Hampton Institute, Va., Dec. 21 In the first game of the season the Seasider court aggregation tumbled the Minor Normal five to a dO-ro defeat. The game, though rather slow and unexciting during the first halt was bright in spots with the laus from Washington paying a deiensive game. j Lancaster broke the ice with a tree j throw and a basket by Captain Gieg ory added to the score. Hopkins came back with a two-pointer for the Teachers. A period of defensive pay followed and then the Seasiders opened up, shooting from every corner. The first half ended with the score 20-8. The game saw many new faces on the Hampton squad; Gregory Coles, Williams, and Hunt, being the letter men of last year who saw action, and F Williams, Lancaster, Carter, Burkes, Scott, Morton, Hooker, Branch, and Lyle being the new men Coles was high point man with seven twin-pointers and Captain Gregory and Lancaster tied next at seven points each. Hopkins, center foi the Teachers, was their outstami ring player and high point man with six points.

An end play is possible i only near the end of any particular ! hand when ail but a few of the thirteen cards have been played. The play of the first seven or more cards usually should enable an alert player to figure out the location of the remaining yards in the other players’ hands. Very fre quently such knowledge will enable a player to gain a trick or more; and the methods of doing so are the so-called “End Plavs”. Here are four that appeared in a recent book on Auction, and each one illustrates a principle of play that should be thoroughly understood by all players. Think oyer the plays and compare your solutions with the analy ses that will be given in the next article. i I Problem No. 14 iearts — none !

Hon c.i •• f i. a .ii-fc against, any defense? knee The Southern Aid Society of Vir ginia, Inc., is closing its thirty-eighth year of continuous operation and service to its policyholders and race people in general. It is the race’s oldest existing insurance company, and in addition to discharging the above obligations, has been a potent factor in training thousands of young race men and women in the technique of the insurance business and insur ance practices. In fact, many of the promoters and officei’s of other race companies received their first train ing and experience with this pioneer company. That by itself is a worthy accomplishment, but it is only one of the many uplifting things which the Southern Aid Society of Virginia, Ir.c., has done for others during its career. The officers of this Company take special pride in the fact that its ad vent in the business activities of the race, changed their economic status from one of abject want and depen dence in times of Sickness, Accident and Death, by making it possible for even the poorer, as well as the more fortunate among the race, through the use of its policies, to provide in dependent means for having medicai attention of their own choice, as well as means to carry on their other household responsibilities, ine ele vation in the economic scale of a de pendent people is possibly the race’s greatest contribution to America’s advancement, and therefore the of ficers of this pioneer insurance com pany and those of other race insur ance companies and associations, de serve the gratitude and liberal pat ronage of all race citizens. But the Southern Aid Society of irginia, Inc., is not content to rest on its past record or achievements, it is venerable only in years, and not in spirit or efforts. Even in the midst of the great depression which has fallen heaviest on race people, it has made steady progress and is now inaugurating new plans and improve ments. For instance, during this year of lessened business, it has paid out in claims a larger pro rata of the Pre mium Income than in any previous ear. That means this Company pur sues a liberal policy toward its pol icyholders, when conditions would justify it to be very exacting and even technical in carrying out its contracts. In addition, it broadened its insurance service by adding all modern forms of Industrial Life Pol icies to its Superior Weekly Health ones. Also, finding that building costs had dropped to a lower point than in the past decade, it took ad vantage of this favorable condition to build its new Home Office, for which there has been a long-standing need, in order to provide adequate and suitable quarters for the person nel of the various departments of the Home Office and to protect the val uable records, securities and equip ment of the Company against fire and other hazards. Thus by mid-sumber. here will be blazing forth on the Northwest corner of Third and Clay Streets, Richmond, Va., a monument of utility and beauty, dedicated not only to the elevation of the race, but •n emblem of what can be accom nlished when only a few thousand of he race’s millions will entrust pvon w>ir small or spending change into the hands of competent and trust worthy race leaders. The Southern Aid Society of Vir-1 ginia, Inc., is, therefore, a benefactor j to the race not only by providing lib-' eral protection at lowcost to its pol- i icyholders, but also by giving digni-: tied employment to young race men • and women and making it possible, ’ through the erection of the above- ! mentioned building, for other race i enterprises and professionals to have ■ decent and modern quarters in which conduct their businesses and pro fessions. — EAST TENNESSEE STUDENTS HOLD INTERRACE FORUM Knoxville, Tenn., Dec. 20:— The ori gin of race prejudice and what the ■tudent may do to prevent it was the subject discussed at the monthly meeting of the East Tennessee Stu dent Interracial Commission held at Knoxville College last week. The subject was introduced in brief ad dresses by Samuel Cain of Knoxville College and Joe Hector of Maryville College and was the basis of a lively general discussion which lasted more than an hour. Student representatives were pre sent from two colored institutions, Morristown and Knoxville Colleges, and from two white schools, the Uni versity of Tennessee and Maryville College. These schools for several years have had a student interracial forum which has done more to pro mote intelligent and helpful attitudes. Joseph Matthews of Knoxville Col lege is president of the commission this year, and Miss Almeda Ford of Morristown College is the secretary The next meeting of the group will be held at Maryville College on January 12. This is one of several such stu dent interracial forums ouerating in Southern college centers, Nashvills, Raleigh, Atlanta. Lynchburg and oth er cities. Good reports come from all of them from time to time. • • • • • FURNITURE When >ou can gat PURNITURB and RTTG8 from aa 014 Establiafcod Host !ke .inno-I^NS—that's known to Mil *l*nd* a good imprtaslou.

BEAUTY THE HAIR Here I am.again, continuing the care of the hair with a suggestion of treatment before or after the sham poo which is of great benefit to the hair and its growth. Previous to washing the hair a hot oil treatment is recommended. Heat a small quantity of olive or sweet oil and apply directly to the scalp by a small piece of absorbent cotten. Part the hair so that the oil will reach every root and then massage gently with the finger tips. Be sure all oil is removed by the shampoo which should consist of at least two lathers of a very fine quality soap or good shampoo. The hair will be soft and shiny and also making it easier to do for those who use the hot ap pliances to the hair. The same results may be obtained after the wash by the restoration of the- natural oils and bringing back the life to the hair. This is done by the following process. A good hair tonic usually obtained from a high class barber shop and a good hair brush of reasonable stiffness with bristles long enough to penetrate to the scalp. Such a brush is quite ex nensive but very effective and lasts I for ages. Brush the hair upward taking a portion at a time to lift the bair free from the scalp, apply hair onic to the scalp parting this por tion of the hair in small sections brushing up and down.

WINNIE COMES AS “LIFE OF PARTY” “The Life of the Party”, the. latest Warner Brothers and Vita - phone comedy in natural color, which opens at the National Thea tre on Monday next for a run of 6 days, marks the return of Win nie Lightner in her most hilarious role. The tomboy of the talkies outdoes even herself as the New York song plugger who decides to turn gold digger. She rides a superstitious horse, on a Havana racetrack—barely escapes jail— manages a sugar-daddie-hunt for a paJ and falls in for no mean re ward for horself. Irene Delroy, the Broadway stage star who made her screen debut in “Nancy From Naples”, depicts the role of a beautiful gold digger who is managed by Winnie on a straight ten percent basis. Jack Whiting, New York musical comedy star, is seen as the young millionaire whose timely gallantry saves the two girls from the police. Charles Judels, who will be remembered as the excitable hotel manager in “Oh Sailor Behave” is seen as the amorous modiste-shop proprietor who follows Winnie and Irene to Havana to recover his stolen dresses. Making his talking picture debut in “The Life of The Party', Charles Buttenvorth, the inimita ble comedian plays the role of a Kentucky horseman. “The. Life of the Party” is adapted to the screen by Arthur Caesar, who is also credited with the sparkling dialogue. Roy Del Ruth directs.
