Dunk Squawks His Can By JAMES DUN-CAN After the "Battle of Waterloo,"' ■when all waa over, and aa tnejr atood on a little eminence looking over the field of the dead and dy lug, Wellington said to Blucher "the saddest thing in all the world lb a GREAT VICTORY, except on e and that is: A GREAT DE.

I work nnd help mother send mv other sisters to school, r.ot had. not had to look at ( ther. I am dark brown. 5 feet, 120 lbs . dance good, love sports, dress nice. So what is my trou ble? Is h»* planning to Jive me? Ans.t— It Is in t uncommon for a draftee to wait several weeks before finding it convenient to write. It takes a little time to be. re me adjusted to the army. You meant too much to him for him to forcet you that easily, lie may n.t hp able to fulfill the prom- Im's lie made before he left..but Ills Intentions nre most honorable. He's not 8 llve.cnt now. he’s In the Army, nnd that comes first. j M.C.—I sent my baby to live w|t h my plater and I left my husband.and went to Florida last -all. He found out I was there and came down and brought me hack. I am fixing to leave him again as he didn’t do any fetter. Must 1 go hack to Florida? Ans.:—No. you shouldn't go bark to Florida, bpt you should make some arrangements to live with your bnhr If yon can't live with vour husband. Your sister wII not continue to keep this baby , under the present set-up. You will have to go to work nnd provide for it. From every Indication, your trouble ts that yon aren’t content to make n home for yonr baby nnd husband. I’m afrnld yon won't he happy unless J on '' r settle down and live as a mother should. I jM S —My father wrote » n( l i want* me to come and live with I him. Now I have never seen hie w Ife and I don't know If I should go «,r not? Ans.i—Yonr father has not been In a position lo take you to live with him until h* ma-rled again. You may he snre that he talked thr matter over with her before writing yru. Make the change. ■« there with the determination that yon will arcept his wife as yonr mother and live peacefully.

With his present rating, It will be only a matter of a few months before he will know how he stands with his draft hoard. I think your place I' nt home with hint ns long ns he Is there. But should he go into service, this would he a happy solution t<» jr»ur situation. G.J.H.—This hoy I am writing about Is a great Jiver. The first time I iaw him I hatod the wav the girls would let hm Jive them. Now he tells me that he loves me and I ran have the swing over the rest of- the girls if I will give him a chance. Does he mean what he says? I have fallen for him now. Ans.!—Are you willing to fall Into the pattern of the rest of yonr girl friends! He Jived them Jnst long ennngh to get them un der his control. Then It was off with the old and on with the new. The secret of yonr having the swing over the resf Is the manner In which yon keep him gnes‘lng.

BLOUNT HOST AT SEA FOOD DINNER Newly elected president of the local Booker T. Washington Trade association, L. C. Blount, was host, last Saturday evening to officers, committees of the or ganisation and their wives at a special “sea food dinner” at his hi me, 430 E. Chandler avenue. The reason for th gathering was more than social, although all enjoyed the sea food delicacies and the society of each other, but they enjoyed more the advise that this is destined to be a great year for the business organisa tion that bears the name of the late Booker T. Washington. President Blount said: “Not only will the association | bring Interesting and forceful i Speakers weekly to give lnforma- 1 tlon and entertainment to our members and friends, but this organization is going to institute a program that will do the great est good to the greatest number of Detroit’s Negro business men and women.” declared President Blount. Continuing, he said: "Wej are living in one of the greatest transition periods the world has ever experienced, and unless Ne gro business is prepared to rec ognize that fact and willing to fall in line with those who are destined to go forward they are doomed to defeat and failure."

Corner Columbia —CLifford 292< Native Son By RICHARD WRIGHT BOOK 3-INSTALLMENT XII BIGGER listened as Mr. Dalton told how the Dalton fam ily always hired Negro boys as chauffeurs, especially when those Negro boys were handicapped by poverty, lack of education, misfortune, or bodily injury. Mr. DaU :on said that this was to give them a chance to support heir families and go to school. He told how Bigger had :ome t 0 the house, how timid and frightened he had act- cd. and how moved and touched* the family had been for him. He told how he had not thought that Bigger had had anything to do with the disappearance of Mary, and how he had told -Britten not to question him. He theu told of receiving the kidnap note, and how shocked he had been when he watt informed that Bigger had fled his home, thereby indicating his guilt. When the coroner's questioning was over. Bigger heard Max ask? "May I direct a few questions?'* "Certainly. Cos right ahead," the coroner said. Max went forward and stood di. rectly In front of Mr. Dalton. "You are the president of the Dalton Real Estate company, are you not?" / "Yes." "Your company owns the build ing in which the Thomas family has lived for the past three years, does It not?" "Well, no. My company own# the stock in a company that owns the house," "I see. tVhat is the name of (hat company?" "The South Side Real Estate company." "Now, Mr. Dalton, the Thomas family paid you . . . "Not to m<*! They pay the rent to the South Side Real Estate company." “You own the controlling stock in the Dalton Real Estate com. pany. don't you?" "Why, yes." "And that company In turn owns the etock that controls the South Side Real Estate company, doesn't It." "Why. yes." "I think I can say that the Thomas family pays rent to you," "Indirectly, yes." "Who formulates the policies of these two companies?" "Why. I do." "Why Is It that vou charge the Tbomaij family and other Negro families more rent for the same kind cf houses than you charge whites?’’ "I don’t fix the rent scales," Mr. Dalton said. "Who does?" t "Why the law of supply and de mand regulates the price of I hr" "Now, Mr, Dalton. It has been said that >ou donate millions of dollars to educate Negroes. Why Is It that you exact an exorbitant rent of eight dollars per week from the Thomas family for one unventllafed. rat-infested room in which four people eat and sleep?" The coroner leaped to his feet. “I'll not tolerate your brow. , heating thi,s w Itness! Have you , no sense of decency? This man Is one of the most respected men In this city! And jour questions have I no hearing . . . ." | “They do have a bearing!" Max shouted. "You said we could ques -1 tion with latitude here! I'm trying to And the guilty person, too! Jan Krlone is not the only man who’s influenced Bigger Thomas! There were many others before him. I ha>> a* much right to determine what effect their attitude has had upon his conduct as you had to determine what Jan Erlone's had!" "I’m willing to answer his ques tion# If it will clear things up." Mr. Dalton said quietly. "Thank you. Mr. Dalton, Now. tell me. why is it that you charged the Thomas family right dollars per week, for one room In a tene -1 ment?” "Well, there’s a housing short age." "All over Chicago?" "No. Just here on the South Side." "You own houses in other sec tions of the city?" "Yea." "Then why don't you rent those houses to Negroes?" "Well. . . . Er. . . . I—l—l den t think they'd like to live any other place." “Who told you that?" "Nobody." "You came to that conclusion yourself?" "Why, yes." "Isn't It true you refuse to rent houses to Negroes if thoee houses are In other sections of the city?" "Why. yes/’ "Why?" "Well, It'a an old custom." "Do you think that custom Is right?" "I didn't make the custom." Mr. Dalton said. "Do you think that cuatom Is right?" Max asked again. "Well. I think Negroes ar* hap pier when they're together." "Who told you thnir "Why, nobody." "Aren’t they more profitable when they’re together?" "I don t know what you mean?" "Mr Dalton, doesn’t this policy of your ermpany tend to keep He. groes on the South Side, in one area?" "Well. It works that way. But I didn't originate. , . "Mr. Dalton, you gay* millions to help Negroes. May I ask you why don't you charge them lesa rent for fire-traps and check that against your charity budget?" "Well, to charge them lesa rent would he unethical " •Tnelhlrair "Why, yea. I would be under selling my competitors." "la thera an agreement among realtors aa to what Negroes should be charged for rent?" "No. Bnt there'* a coda of ethics In business." "80. the profits you take from th« Thtmaa- family in renta. yon give back to them to ease the pain o’ their gouged lives and to salve the ache of your earn conscience I" "That's a distortion of fart, sir!" H "Mr. Dalton, why do you eon. tribute money to Negro cducal tion?" "I want to see them have a chance." "Have you ever employed any of the Negroes you helped to ed. ucHte?" "Why, no.” "Mr. Dalton, do you think that the terrible conditions under which the Thomas family lived in one of your houses may in some way be related to the death of your daughter?" "I don’t know what you mean," "That's all." said Max. After Mr. Dalton left the stand, Peggy came, then Britten, a host of doctors, reporters, and many policemen. "We »ill now hear from Ripper Thomas!" the coroner called, A wave of excited voices swept over the room. Bigger* fitigtri gripped the arms of the chair. Max'# hands touched his should, er. Bigger turned and Max whi». pered: "Sit still." Max rose. "Mr. Coroner?" "Yes?" "In the capacity of Bigger Thomas' lawyer. I'd like to state that he does not wish to testify here.” "Ills testimony would help to clear up any doubt as to the cause of the death of the deceased," the coroner said. "Mv client Is already In police custody and it is his right to re. fuse. ..." "All right. All right," the coton. er said. Max sat down. "Stay in your seat It's all right." Max whispered to Bigger. ' Bigger relaxed and felt his heart 1 pounding Ho longed for something to so that the white faces would stop staring at him. Fimll. y. the face* turned away. The ecroner strode to the table and lifted the kidnap note with a slow, long, delicate, and deliberate ges ture. "Gentlemen." ho said, facing the six men In the row# of chaH«. "you have heard the testimony of the witnesses. I think, however, that you should have the oppor. tunlty to examine . the evidence gathered by the Police Depart, ment." The coroner gave the kidnap note to one of the jurors who read it and passed it on to the others. AH of the Jurors examined the purse, the blood-stained knife, the blackened hatchet blade, the Com munist pamphlets, the runt bottle, the trunk, and the signed conies, sion. "Owing to the peculiar nature !of this crime, and owiug to the 1 fact that the deceased's body was | all but destroyed, I deem it iiu. perative that you examine one ad. ditional piece of evidence. It will help shed light upon the actual manner of the death of the de ceased," the coroner said. He turned and nodded In the di. ret tion of two white-coated at. tendents who stood at the rear door. The room was quiet. Bigger wondered how much longer it would last; he felt that h e could not stand much more. Now and then the room blurred and a slight giddiness came over him; hut lus muscles would flex taut and it would pas«. The hum of voices grew suddenly loud and the corou. tr rapped for order. Then a coin motion broke out. Bigger heard a man’s voice saying: , "Move aside, please!" He looked and saw two white, coated attendants pushing an ob long. sheet-covered table through the crowd and down the aisle. What’# thlo? Bigger wondered. He (eli Max's hand come onto hia shoulder. "Take it easy, Bigger. This'll soon be over." "What they doing?" Bigger ask ed in a tense whisper. For a long moment Max did not answer. Then he said uncertainly: "I don't know."
