Urban League

The first membership mass
meeting, conducted by the
Chicago Urban League this
season, will be held at Pilgrim
Baptist Church, 3201 Indiana
avenue, Sunday, June 2, at 4
o’clock in the afternoon, Rev.
J. C. Austin, Attorney Pat

At this meeting, information

ment for Social and Civic Improve
ment in organizing neighborhood
improvement clubs and promoting
community betterment, will be
presented. Plans for securing
jobs on PVVA projects will also be
explained. A brief summary of the
work of the Urban League during
the past twelve months will be giv
Opens Finance Drive
This meeting- will open the for
mal opening of the Urban League’s
1934-35 financial campaign. The
campaign will last for ten days
during which it is the hope of the
Finance Committee that not less
than $5,000 will be raised. ‘‘This
sum is needed in order that we may
continue our campaign for improv
ed community conditions and our
fight for jobs,” stated Attorney
Sidney P. Brown, chairman of the
Finance Committee. “The Urban
League not only serves the south
side, but all of metropolitan Chi
cago and therefore our budget is
very modest. As a matter-of-fact,
we serve all of the Negroes of Il
linois since we organized the Illi
nois Advisory Council for Negroes
under Dr. Bousfield, two years a
go. Certainly $5,000 is a small
amount co ask from our friends.”
Blue and Red Divisions
Mrs. Annie Oliver, prominent in
club circles, is Director of the Blue
Division and .J. A. Buford of Unity
Mutual Life Insurance Company
is heading the Red Division. Each
of these divisions has set $2,500 as
a goal. Both divisions have re
cruited many active Captains and
thesfe Captains wjth their teams of!
workers will hold reserved seats at ,
the Mass Meeting Sunday.
In the World of Music
By Mabel Sanford Lewis
Theodore Charles Stone, a young i
baritone and one of Chicago’s ex
cellent musi
cians, Was
heard on Tues

lerd. Mr. Stone
opened his pro
gram with Cal
dara's "Selve
Amiehe, Om

The next group
listed “Mary

r P e !,'Mabel S. Lewis
The Cave,
(Edwin Schneider), “Why?”
(Tsehaiskowsky), “Where My Car
avan Has Rested" (Lohr), with
violin obligato, which was played
by Rufus Heathington. Songs of
two of our young composers were
used: “Within My Heart,” by
Muriel Rose and "Then My Life
Will Be Made Anew” by Josephus
Mr. Stone was a graceful fine
voiced performer, behaving with a
routined maturity of styie that be
lied his scant years. His appear
ance was very successful indeed
His program was well chosen and
gave him excellent opportunity to
display his vocal aitistry. He
sang with all possible ease, his
voice was flexible and well control
led. Chicago friends of the young
singer had good reason to bo
proud of him. His splendid spirit
won the fully merited approval of
the appreciative audience. The
following artists assisted, Walter
E. Cossette, organist, Rufus
Heathington, violinist, the writer
aeeompsmied the singer.

Mrs. Ieeler Petty-Little, soprano,
appeared in their third annual
recital Monday evening at Grace
Presbyterian church to a large
audience, the writer is pleased ro
state that the young man is im
proving in his playing and with
continued practice, I fee! Sure he
will go further. I hope that he
will continue to progress as he has
since I first heard him three years
Mrs. Little Is a sincere and ar
dent worker and we sincerely ap
preciate her interest in this young
man, whom I believe is very de
serving. Gertrude Smith Jackson
was very enjoyable as the accom
panist for the sobists. Anita Mc
Ghee, pianist played two numbers
on the program.
The It. Nathaniel Dett Club,
