'JJEWS By SARAH McNEAMER HARVEY This 'N That VMr ¥” s. *.. si By Sarah M. Harvey THOUGHT FOE TODAY: “Remember this, and also be persuaded of its truth— the future is not in the hand of fate, but in ourselves . . '* j —Jules Jusserand PREPARATIO N S FOR FIRST CLASS CITIZEN | SHIP . . . Very important in our preparations is our CON DUCT—our abiilty to mingle comfortably and pleasantly with OTHER PEOPLE . . . In preparing for First Class Citizenship, we must remem ber that we are living in a world where we cannot be blinc to those around us . . . WE HAVE A SOCIAL DUTY. EVEN TO THE STRANGERS WE MEET — TO ALL PEO PLE, regardless to their Na- j tional origin or the color of! their skin . . . Most people are quick to j ecognize cour tesy and eager to respond to j it . . . One writer has said,; “Do not wear your courtesy j like a watch, to take it out now and then when vou wish to impress people” ... Be courteous always — not only on the street and in the car, but in shops, at the theatre, wherever you go, with whom ever you happen to be—ever remembering that Courtesy, like a boomerang, will return to you who send it into the world . . . Let us prepare ourselves for First Class Citi zenship by being, GENTLE, being KIND, being SIMPLE in our taste and SINCERE in our actions ... by lettirng ev erything we do and say be governed by a DESIRE TO PLEASE OTHERS . . . For these are the things that truly distinguish a FINE CHARAC TER — this is the way to belie the often made statement that “Negroes have a cultural lag” . . . TO THE SOPHISTICATED LAVERETTES we doff our hat and commend them for not only the “best” evening of en tertainment we've witnessed in a long time, but for a splen did job well done . . . There s no doubt about it . . . friend ‘Gregory’ and her Sophisti cates head the list of those whn cpp a nppri and arp doillff something worthwhile to filfill that need here in our fair city . . .

N.) Mitchell, we were fortunate to have a table where we could not only see the lovely models; see the talented youngsters vieing for the coveted title of “Miss Mag nolia State;’’ see the crown ing of the “King and Queen’’ of Society . . . but could also see to a good advantage the fashionable dressed ladies and their correctly attired escorts that made up the near to standing room only audience . . . Doing a marvelous job of emceeing were, WOKJ Bruce Payne and Campbell College P. R. head, L’Dina Robinson . . . We’d like to tell about all the lovely models and name them for you . . . but just can’t find our ‘little note book’ and rather than leave out one single model, we won’t mention any by name . . . BUT ALL WERE LOVE LY AND ALL WORE LOVE LY CLOTHES . . . Those hairdos styled by friends An nie B. Simpson, Allene (Skeets) Brown and Madam Mirtis Gregory . . . were way out ... A big thank you to the Sophisticates lor a most en rjoyable evening . . . Else where in this issue will be found pictures of Sunday’s ac tivities. . . AN SOS TO ALL persons in the 5th Precinct . .
