Hi, Folks: Before starting down
Melody Lane," I want to stop
by the offiice and extend my con
gratulations to George Goodman,
on his appointment as editor of
our popular and fast growing
weekly, The Hartford CHRON
ICLE. Finding him and Johnny
Stewart, associate editor,, busy at
typewriters and telephones, so I
just say hello, shake hands, grab
my press card and cut-out to nose
in on "Anna Lucasta" and her
family troubles at IBushnell Mem

with the co-operation of the en

cept Laura Bowman and Frank

the ILucasta family. Among those
enjoying the performance, I
spotted Mr. and Mrs. Sidney M.
Johnson, Mrs. Jessie Washington,
Freddie (Chappy) Chappelle,

Mrs. Hill, Mrs. Register, Mrs.
Foote, Mrs. Gene Richards, and
Tom (Specks) Woods. A very
appreciative mixed audience was
on hand to welcome "Anna."

Auditorium. I am told that Clyde
has a nice outfit. Good luck, fel
lers! James (Esquire) Perkins, bet
ter known to Hartford's young

to do so. If you get what I

We note that the prosecution
in the recent Laurencebu.rg, Tenn.,
trials wherein 23 Negroes . were
acquitted has placed the blame
for the disturbances that led to
the arrests on the shoulders of
the "Reds." ;
According to the prosecution

Perhaps the south is at last

for this issue.
A word from anold pal, June
Richmond. Owns a fine $40,000

as Cab Calloway, Andy Kirk and
Kay Kyser. . Her amlbition is to

Just a moment, the phone just
rang. Fine! Mrs. Gussie Clark,
wife of my old pal, Armster B.
Clark, and one of Hartford's lead

something interesting in the near
future. I am sure we will all
be waiting, and yon have my best

Now - Notes from the Cypress
Arms, out Park St. way where
Arnold Canty and his gang are
holding forth. Arnold has a pre-
nistonc musical background,
which I will go into at a later
issue. At present he is doing a
swell job, having held down things
since last New Year's eve, under
trying circumstances, and has
made good. (Brother, I know
what you've been -through). On
the bandstand are: Arnold, lead
er and guitarist; Orris, DeLoach,
piano, and Jive, and a newcomer
from Florida, alto sax man
known only as Mr. 3. J. Well,
buzz me more, Mr. J. J.
Watch for the highlights on
another popular Nite-Spot next
week. Until ten, keep your chin
up, during the shortage on every
thing, and keep smilin'! So long!
