WE ARE SURPRISED AT THE GIRLS. This past week has brought many deep regrets to our mind and heart when we saw three of our own autos standing idle while their drivers were rustling up business and at the same time we noticed a large auto full of our own young boys and girls riding up and down Five Points advertising the fact that they had a “white driver from down town.” How can we ever hope to succeed that way or help our own boys who have worked hard, saved their little mites and have en tered business with the hope that they would get “Negro patronage?’’ Is this the kind of a race pride that will finally enable our boys to own and op erate a garage in Five Points? •The Star noticed this occurrence for at least three times this week and if $3 an hour is paid, these young people paid at least $lB to S2O to a driver who had every opportunity in life as against ours. We are surprised at the girls who permitted their own to be thus neglected. These girls are of our best families and should think of our business men. Three Negro families with their autos standing idle and then to have a “down town” white driver to come up in Five Points to get “the business!'* We again ask is this race pride? Notice the drivers hereafter and then notice when the “race” is attacked 'or needs help who will be on the firing line. Las Vegas. N. M., June 20, 1918. The Denver S f ar, Denver, Colo.

NEW HONOR ACCORDED DAVID Might with Entire Propriety Be Called the First Bandmaster Reoorded in History. David might well be called the first bandmaster mentioned in history, t r r he was the first orchestral organizer of which we have any record. His band numbered two hundred, four score and eight, and he thus led the first boily of players. He no doubt possessed a knowledge of Instrumen tation and tone-color effect, for he assigns his subjects to special instru ments. The fourth Psalm, "Hear me when I call, O Cod of my righteousness,” he directs to be played by his chief musician, who was a player of the harp and the sackbut. Psalm fifth, ‘‘Give ear to my words, O Lord,” fle assigns to the chief musician, who was the solo tint 1st of his band. Psalm sixth. “O Lord, rebuke roe not In thine nnger,” the chief musician or soloist on the string Instrument, who hail a virtuoso's regard for ex pression, Is called upon to perform, and so on through the Psalms. ' David without question had In his band nil of the component parts of the modern orchestra—strings, wood winds, brass and percussion. At the dedication of Solomon's temple. I>avld and all the house of Ihivtd "played before the Ix»rd with all manner of Instruments made of fir wood, and with harps And with psaltrles with trlmbels, castanets, cornets and cym bals, and the sound of the trumpet was heard In the land even as it Is heard today.” Popular as a com|»oser and popular as a conductor, David was * ertalply to be envied. From these BiWicnl days to the present time the instrumental body has existed in many forms —bands com posed entirely of bagpipes, orchestra* composed entirely of string instru ments. bands of oboe players, bands entirely of brass, bands ofi brass and wood-wind, bands of trumpets, bands of bugles, hands of drums, and all sorts of combinations have been mod* by man. SPOTS OF LIFE IN DEAD SEA Bmall Fish and Other Living Creature# Hava Been Observed in Deso late Waters. The Pond sea Is not quite so deso late ns was represented by early writ ers, who pictured It as utterly without life, with sterile shores, and so pesti lential that even birds fly In* over were liable to fall dead. Though 4fl miles in length und more than 0 miles In greatest breadth, it Is especially not able us being the greatest depression on the earth. Its surface being 1,300 fret lower than that of the Mediter ranean. The rainfall Is slight, but the great volume 01. water poured In by j the Jordan rnlses the surface 10 or 15 feet at times, though, with no out let, this inflow is all evnpornted In the dry season. The water has become very dense and bitter, while floating masses of bitumen ejected from the bottom and sulphur deposited from springs along the shore add to the un attractiveness. It Is true that neither animal nor vegetable life Is to be found In the sal test parts of the sen, but Dr. W. O. Mastertoh, in an ac count to the Royal Geographical so ciety, stated that near the shores, where small brackish streams find en trance, occur small Ash, crabs and mosquito larvae. At a spot where he and other travelers saw fish actively swimming, the water was found to contain not less than 88.3 per cent of solids. There are many places along the shore where acres of reeds and many trees flourish, and at such spots, birds snd other animal life are abun dant Will Strangely Found. Stranger than fiction Is the story told In London of how a missing will was discovered. In one house there was an old hares'll which had been handed down as an heirloom for near ly a century. In an air raid this was split down the center, and a secret cabinet revealed. There were found a number of papers, and among them a will which will have an Important effect upon the present holders of the property. 3. : -.7 : I M ■ ‘ i — 1 , 1021-21»t St. Phone Champa 752 V ’ \ EARNEST HOWARD Carpenter, and Contractor New and Repair Work.
