Weahd and Seen
on Wxrin Siheel
By MM. KEITH SAUNDERS
Am anecdote that is drawing
forth many a chuckle in these
parts run; something as follows:
Farmer Jones encounters Farm
; Smith down the road and says:
Say. would you like to know a
uue-fire cure for horse fistulas?"
And Farmer Smith, who. like
n:o>t farmers, has at one time or
another had a horse become ser
ao.-ly ill if not dies from fistulas.:
cager'y answers in the affirma
tive.
Well. T know one." says Farm
r :? Jones, "but I had to pay right
mom." to learn it. so I'll have to
charge you ten dollars to tell you
v hr to use."
' I.is:en." rays Farmer Smith.
? i , ^p[;ars pc.
' i* ! sol:; like you could tell
o'd friend .'ike me for noth
? Oh. all right." says Farmer
. ium. I ll tell you. But after I
veu what the cure is you |
; ? gilt not be able to get it. It j
? > : v ha'd to get. in fact, it is j
almost impossible to get it." j
AW 11. what is it?" asks Farm-J
: sr.it ;. impatiently.
rW three drops of sweat off a
V.'AA worker." says Farmer!

T > Hvrci BAind Smith, my pre-1
ms niece, goes the award for :
c blight saying of the week, j
u' a. tourist walking down
Ma:n Scot in riding breeches!
the o ner day. she piped up and1
.eid. 'Oh. look at that man with |
the horse panto."
The crowd attending a party J
hem recently became extremely)
noisy at a lather late hour. The:
fu.her of iite host, having stood
the noise as long as he could.)
i a tied his own number from the)
extension telephone in his bed- i
loom. When the phone rang his j
daughter answered.
"Will you please try to get that I
i any to quiet down a little." the:
fid Iter pleaded.
" Ves. I'll do that right away."
re pointed the daughter.
Hut site was not successful and j
the neise continued. The father)
railed a second time.
Make that bunch of wild In
d ans quiet down or get them out
ihere." he stormed.
? V sir." replied his daughter.
Then, wracking her brain for
some means of quieting the
ciowd. she had an idea.
Taming to the crowd she said.
"Tiie police just called and said
neighbors are complaining about
the noise, and that if we don't |
que; down they will have to
come up here."
l announcement broke up
the puty.
A y un: married man went out
u" the dives just outside
it n ihe other night and was
imvir.'; ouite a good time when
I'.'kvd up and saw his wife
the place in company
Wilis another mart.
JI; iilirc had expected to en
counter the other there, and it's
hard i.uc which was the more
sttrpri etl.
Th! > happened several weeks
o but ?t s ipped trv mind until
recently. A certain matron who
i has long had a "rep" for step
i ping out on her husband attend-1
ed a dance with another man j
one Saturday night. Her hus-1
band, suspecting where she was.
drove there and parked his car
, beside the very car in which she
and her companion were sitting
on the back seat. She recogniz
ed her husband's car and quickly
ducked to the floor of the car
[ and told her friend tot get out
of the car and go into the dance
hall.
So there they were: the hus
band sitting in one car with a
pistol in his pocket, and the wife
in the next car lying on the
ilcor and quivering with fear.
After a whiie the owner of the
car in which the wife was hiding
v.cnt to Ins car to take a drink.
As he stepped into the car he
stepped on the woman. This
frightened both of them. Telling
h:m what it was all about, she
pleaded with him to drive down
the road so she couid get out of
the car without being seen by her
husband. But he wasn't willing
o take any such chance, so he
left her in the car.
After she had been in the car j
for nearly two hours, she' finally I
opened the door on the side op
posite from where her husband's I
car was parked, crouched down 1
and quickly darted to the next [
car. When the owner of that car
showed up she persuaded him to i
take her down the road and got I
him to tell her consort where to I
pick her up.
And thus, probably, was a mur- j
der averted.

Negro 4;God" Found Hid-j

New York, April 22. (U.R)?Fath
er Divine, Harlem's bald little Ne
gro "gcd" who scuttled out of
his downtown "heavens" on last
Tuesday after a man was stabbed
in a riot, was picked up by police
tonight in Milford, Conn.
The Negro mcssiah was found
hiding in the cellar of a small
house, which one of his "faithful
angels" turned over to him after
he fled into the night.
Police want him on a charge
of felonious assault. He has been
sought in a half dozen states
since the riot, in which the little
black "god" attacked a process j
crvcr who tried to serve him with
a summons from a rebellious fol
lower.
The process server, Paul Camo-,
ra. was pummelled by the cult i
eader's cnrag~d follower-,, and a
friend. Harry Green, was taken i
tc a hospital with a knife wound j
in his ch:st. lie sti 1 is in critical1
condition.

who made the arrest, raid he act- !
cd on a tip. apnaren ly from one!
of tlie Ncg-'c cul'. leader's follow- j
crs in Milford. wlicre lie has cno!
of his numerous "heavens."
The squat, beady-eyed "gcd" |
was huddling in a corner of the 1
cellar when Captain Douglas and
two other policemen walked in
with guns drawn.
"We weren't taking any chanc
es." Doug as said.
A Mock Surrender
"God" didn't bother about pass
ing any miracles, however. He
licked his lips, held out his hands
and said:
"Here I am. I ain't going to
hurt nobody."
He was dressed in a blue suit,
had no hat. and needed a shave.
Otherwise he seemed to have suf
fered no ill effects in his flight
from the Harlem "heaven."
He told Douglas lie would
waive extradition and go to New
York.
"Peace?it's wonderful," he told
detectives who hustled him to
jail.
Meanwhile the "heavenly hier
archy" of the one-time Baptist
preacher was beginning to show
signs of revolt. The "faithful an
gels." who assured questioners
that Father Divine had not fled
but merely made himself "invis
ible." reportedly suppressed cne
insurrection today.
Father Divine.'s No. 1 angel.
"Faithful Mary." who decided
I shortly after he fled that he was
not "god" but "just a damned
man." said she would take over
his temporal and spiritual powers
"It was revealed to me mart
than a week ago." she explained,
"(hat Father Divine was going to
disappear. I got that revelation
right after he threw me out and
stripped me of my responsibilities.
"I was disheartened?but only
momentarily. The spirit to'.d me
every, hing would turn out okay?
that I would not have to leave.
Then Father Divine disappeared.
That was the fulfillment of the
spirit's prophecy."
Faithful Mary said she k:.ew
this was the signal for her to
take over, so she dashed down to
I the Harlem "heaven" to establish
[ herself on the "throne."
When she arrived, the "faithful |
I angels" had locked her out.
"Faithful Mary ain't faithful j
any more," they explained. 'She '
ain't got nothin' but that big j
body of hers, and Father Divine |
j give her that an' he can take it!
i away again."
I Faithful Mary, whose power in '
the curious cult was almost equal ?
to that of Father Divine himsr'f,
; was regarded as his chief example
, of "healing power." He claimed
' to have "cured" her of several
diseases, and referred to her as
| a "sample and example" of his
, powers.
His followers explained that
when Father Divine "cured" a
person he gave them their bcdy.

"Rookie" Gehrig signed with the

THE HOME-RUN KING! Gehrig has an average of 38 home
runs per season. He led the American League with 49 homers
in 1934 and again in 1936. Gehrig's follow-through is shown
above. It takes healthy nerves to connect with one, and,
as Lou says: "Camels don't get on my nerves."

He's walked more than any other player today.
BASEBALL'S "IRON-MAN"! When Lou steps out on the field ?he'll be playing
his 1,809th consecutive game. Injuries never stopped "Iron-Man" Gehrig. Once
he chipped a bone in his foot?yet knocked out a homer, two doubles, and a
single next day. Another time, he was knocked out by a "bean ball," yet next day
walloped 3 triples in 5 innings. Gehrig's record is proof of his splendid physical
condition. As Lou says: "All the years I've been playing, I've been careful about
my physical condition. Smoke? I smoke and enjoy it. My cigarette is Camel."
