by Mrs. Maty Melxtod Rethune as

There are several pertinent reasons
why the ruutors which have come
from the nation's capitol during
the past month are incorrect, the
brilliant and charming young law
maker declared Tuesday as she

In the first place, she explained,
the NYA job has never been prof
fered to her and the first she had
,heard that there was. any definite
likelihood of her accepting it was
when she read the story In the
newspapers. Then, she pointed out,
she has Just begun work in her
post as a member of the Pennsyl
vania assembly, Iter election to
that post marking the first time a
Negro woman had ever sat In the
legislative halls of any American
commonwealth. She is enjoying
this new experience, she said, aside
from the clouds of tobacco smoke
which envelop her each working
hour, and she is accus
tomed to that.
Mrs. Fauset has reason to be
pleased with her prospects. In the
brief time she h is served in the

respect of her fellow representa

THE STAR-SPANGLED BANNER
By Francis Scott Key
() say, cart you see, by the dawn’s early light ,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last
t Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting iu .air.
Gave proof through the night that our flag was till
O! say. docs that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free, and the home of the brave?
' On that shore dimly seen through the mist of the deep,
Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence
What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep.
As it fitfully blows, now conceals, now discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s fir«t beam
In full glory reflected now shines on the stream;
Tis the star-spangled banner; O long may it wave
O’er the land of the free, and the homo of the brave!
And where is thpt*tfnnd who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
A home and a country should lea\e tis no more?
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps’
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free, and the home of the brave.
O! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved homes and the war’s
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n rescued
Praise the power that hath made and preserved
us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just
And this be our motto, —‘Tn God is our trust;”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free, and the home of the brave.

LIFT EVERY VOICE AND SING
(National Hymn for the Colored People of America)
Words by James W. Johnson,
Music by J. Rosamond Johnson
Lift every voice and sin#
Till Earth and Heaven Ring:.
Ring with the harmonies of Liberty:
Let our rejoicing rise
High as the list'ning skies.
Let it resound loud as the rolling sea .
Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has
Sing a song full of the hope that the present has
. brought us.
Facing the rising sun
Os our new day begun,
Let us march on till victory is won.
Stony the road we trod
Ritter the chast'ning rod
Felt in the days when hope unborn had died;
Vet with a steady beat.
Have not our weary feet
Come to the place for which our fathers sighed.
Wo have come over a way that with tears has been
We ha\<» come, treading our path thro* the blood of
Out from the gloomy past.
Till now we stand at last
Where the white gleam of our bright star is cast.
God of our weary years.
God of our silent tears.
Thou who hast brought us thus far on the way;
Thou w ho hast by Thy might.
Led us into the light.
Keep us forever in the path , we pray.
Lest our feet stray from the places, our God, where w§
Lest, our hearts drunk with the wine of the world, we
Shadowed beneath Thy hand,
May we forever stand,
True to our God, true to our Native Land.
