Senate Debate Shows
Lynch Bill Is Alive
Washington I) C- A short bat
sharp exchange in the senate dur
ing consideration of the govern
nicn' reorganization bill indicated
that the Federal anti-lynching bill
is still a very live issue and one
likely to pop out at any moment
After the reorganization bill was
passed March 2s by a vote of 49-42,
Senatoi James F Byrnes of South
Carolina sponsor of the measure.
mov*-d to substitute the House bill
on the same subject for the Senate
bill so that It could be sent to con
ference, rather than sent back to
the House, and thus speeded to
final passage
Senator Bennett '"hamp Clark, of
Missouri, however, immediately ob
jected and stated that he would of
fer the antl-lynching HiU as a
rider to the House bill if tJ»e sub
stitution move of Seaator Byrnes
were made
Senator Byrnes thereupon with
drew his motion and the reorgani
zation bill went back to the House
for further action.
The anti-lynchlng bill thus hangs
as a sword of Damocles over the
Senate and may be called up at
any time

Nacirema Club To Present
“Death Takes A Holiday”
For nine years Nacire
nu Club hue made it possible for
aspirins amsteurs to appear to ad
vantage In the field of musical
comedy This year the club will
make a definite departure from the
preccdure of other years by pre-
senting a fascinating and stirring
drama. “Death Takes A Holiday.” i
The drama will be presented at |
the Detroit Institute of Arts on the;
evening of May 6
Nimrod Carney, a promising
young actor. Is cast in the role of ■
Death, a part which was so es-j
fectively played on the screen by
Fredric March, and on the stage
by Phiilip Merivaies
The lovely and petite Julia Cole
lends all the charm of her youth
to the portrayal of Graxia She
reads the lines with a slncerety
that is most convincing.
These two young stars are ablv
supported by a very competent
cast In casting for the vehicle.
Nacirema literally combed the city
in search for talent. The directors
stated that there were many fac
tors to be considered. The lines,
they point out. are beautifully poe
tic and can be done convincingly
only by those with great emotional
concept.
“Death Takes A Holiday" Is bas
ed on the poetic conception ,of
death suspending all activities
three days, during which period h'
falls in love with a beautiful girl,
and through this love realizes why
mortals fear him.
The mood of this play is estab
lished with remarkable skill, and
while It is charged with exciting
moments, it is a play that will make
one think, and will stimulate dis
cussion. aVid present a novel and
optimistic philosophy on the prob
lems of love and death
