The Sphinx Adds Five New Members to Staff




Many bright features are being added to the Sphinx Magazine with the addition of several new members to the staff of our official publication. Additions to the staff include Brothers Sidney R. Jones, Jr., Chicago; Reid E. Jackson, Langston University; Burt A. Mayberry, Dowdal H. Davis, and James A. Jeffress, Kansas City, Mo. These devoted sons of Alpha have already begun contributing to the Sphinx. Brother Jones, in the Convention Number, released his first article on the Sphinx Manuel. Brother Davis did the art work for the front cover. Brother Jeffress is directing the Song Contest, announcement of which is made in this edition. Brother Jackson is author of this Number's editorial, "Where are We Hiding?" Brother Mayberry has assumed a large proportion of the preliminary work necessary to keep a continuous stream of copy flowing into the Sphinx Office. The editor, with older members of the staff, expresses appreciation for the splendid service they are willing to render through the columns of the official organ. S I D N E Y A. JONES, JR.

THREE PAST PRESIDENTS MEET ON OKLAHOMA SOIL (See Front Cover) When the Oklahoma Association of Negro Teachers invited President Henry L. Dickason, Bluefield Teachers Col Use. Institute. West Va., and Dr. Charles H. Wesley, Dean (if the Graduate School of Howard University, to he sues; speakers at the Thirty-third Annual Session in Oklahoma City, in February, there was an occasion fur the meeting of three past General Presidents of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, each Di whom hears earmarks of unusual careers in

the history of the organization. Brother Dickason held two offices in succession in the early days of Alpha and was a national officer when Brothers MeGee and Wesley were initiated into the Fraternity. Brother Lucius L. McGee was first editor-in-chief of the Sphinx, and served as Vice-President, and later President. He is the donor of the nationally known McGee Cup, awarded yearly to the chapter making the most meritorious record each year. Brother Wesley holds the unequalled record of having served as President longer than any predecessor, lie is the Historian of Alpha Phi Alpha.

Where Are W e Hiding? By Reid E. Jackson It appears, to the writer, that the basic difficulty, in a program of reclamation for Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, resides in the inability to know definitely just "who is an Alpha map?" To be sure, in some extent, the insignia badge distinguishes the fraternity man. But, it fails to give status to that legion of men who, for one reason or other, do not wear the fraternity pin! Hew, then is one able to recognize all Alpha men? The solution to the problem posed above may be had in compilation of an annual directory, published from the office of the General Secretary. The writer is mindful of the directory issue of the Sphinx; but such, in his opinion, does not fulfill a wide-spread demand for knowledge of the full membership of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity. The directory, suggested herein, might contain certain pertinent data relating to the brother. Such data might include chapter affiliation; date of initiation; present status with fraternity; occupation; address; and special achievement. Other details, of a similar nature might be presented, if it becomes necessary. The directory, at first, might be made available to the officers of each chapter of the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity. This view is taken because it is felt that the initial cost of printing and issuance of such a bulletin might prohibit circulation among all bona fide members of the fraternity. However, any brother could have privilege to inspect that directory available to his local chapter. Among other benefits to be derived from a directory would be the listing of the names of all Alpha men, in a single source, where one might be able to become conversant with the identity and work of Alpha men, in all sections of the country. Indeed, this could well serve as an incentive to the daily activities of those persons in Alphadom. At least, though, there is a psychological effect to be had in the published announcement of a fraternity roll. The fundamental human drive of "longing" can not be ignored. There is yet another technique which might be utilized in taking inventory of Alpha men. In consequence of the rigor of life in a complex society, it becomes expedient, often, for individuals to change the locale of their activity. And, all to much, they are allowed to "drift about" in their new environment, unchallenged by brother Alpha men—unless someone, inadvertently or otherwise, "discovers" this brother. We can afford no longer to depend upon fortuitous circumstances to ferret out "delinquent" or "lost"

brothers. A practical procedure, involving a follow-up program, must be evolved by the fraternity. It should be incumbent upon each local chapter to forward a letter to the chapter in closest proximity to the new residence of their emigrant brother. The chapter, thus contacted, would engage in correspondence with the parent chapter, until a final report is achieved in respect to the brother in question. This display of interest and concern, on the part of the general organization, should improve greatly the esprit de corps of the entire membership, thus rendering it less likely for brothe s to develop a flagging interest in the work of the organization—oftentime, to the point where they sever relationships with the organization. A final observation might be made, with regard to the program of the local chapter. After all, one could hardly castigate the errant brother for his hesitance in "coming back into the fold," simply to swell the coffers of the chapter treasury, so that an annual "Night in Egypt" might be an ostentatious social triumph. Yet, this seems to be the usual period when a frantic search is made for all "unfinancial" brothers. Local chapters should take their cue from the general organization, in its recent formulation of a committee to prosecute a study of the economic status and employment of the Negro. That is to say, local chapters should apply their financial resources and energies to a scientific appraisal of practical problems besetting the Negro citizenry in their respective communities. Any endeavor to arrive at a solution of such issues would serve as a motivating factor in securing the interest and activity of a greater number of brothers. Whatever conviction one may entertain as to the appropriate procedures for a reclamation program, there should be concurrence in the thesis that our efforts, in this direction, should not run the gamut of lip-service. This program should constitute a challenge to every Alpha man which can not fall short of a concrete program of intelligent action.

"BULL SESSION" Chapter associate editors have continued a discussion on the topic of reclamation under the caption of "Bull Session," a new Sphinx feature introduced by Brother Burt A. Mayberry, Beta Lambda Chapter, Kansas City, Mo.


Page 4 The "Bull Session" is one of several new features suggested for the Sphinx by Brother Burt A. Mayberry, Beta Lambda Chapter, and Assistant Editor of the Sphinx Magazine. It is the outgrowth of a similar feature sponsored by host brothers of Kansas City, at the last convention to avail brothers of the opportunity to "meet and fraternize, and get off one's pet theories as to what would benefit the Fraternity," as Brother Mayberry stated. Topic for the "Bull Session" in this edition is :â&#x20AC;&#x201D;

"HOW CAN WE GET OUR INACTIVE BROTHERS BACK INTO TAE FOLD?" B E N N I E D R E W BROWN Beta Xi Lambda 1. Announce in the next edition that names of all financial brothers will be published in the Sphinx and unfinancial brothers will also be listed, giving the number of years delinquent members have been unfinancial. Somebody may become ashamed and pay up. This should be done every month or twice a year. Stop trying to shield those who refuse to pay their dues. A lot of college presidents would be surprised to know some good Alpha faculty members refuse to pay fees. Beta Xi Lambda has initiated the savings account program whereby each member can pay so much a month toward his dues but it did not work out so well. o A. D. CROSLEY Alpha Rho Lambda The General Organization should put on an " A L P H A R A L L Y " to reclaim "every delinquent brother by making a personal appeal. In short, show the brothers that we are interested in them through communication; notwithstanding their unfinancial status. Alpha Rho Lambda uses personal contacts, telephone calls, and continued "annoyance" to get brothers to the meetings. After they have been landed, these brothers are then given some responsibility as Alpha men. o C. ALTON


Beta Chi Chapter 1. Stimulating interest by asking delinquent brothers to participate in various activities. Beta Chi plans to use the "Bull Session" as chapter feature to reclaim inactive brothers. It likewise sponsors a series of smokers during the year.

March, 1941



" Session. HAROLD H. MARSHALL Beta Delta Chapter Invite them for active participation in activities of the chapter, including public programs and social affairs. File names of all brothers in the vicinity and notify them regularly of chapter plans and progress. Beta Delta has denied inactive brothers from participation in activities . . . "regardless of nature . . . and their names omitted from all public matter." o JOSEPH TAYLOR Beta Mu Chapter We as brothers could encourage informal "get-to-gethers" among our brothers who have strayed from the fold. These informal meetings could be among themselves and also together with some active chapter. In the course of the meeting the good things that Alpha are doing every day should be pointed out and the spirit should be raised so high that brothers who aren't actively connected will realize what they are missing and desire to become active again. Of course this should be encouraged by brothers who have some influence over inactive brothers. o T. WILKINS DAVIS Alpha Omicron


1. Through personal contact. 2. Through correspondence. 3. Through the inclusion of inactive brothers in the social life of the chapter. 4. By a definite "Return to the Fold" program. Alpha Omicron Chapter is using already points 2 and 3, as ways in which it seeks to get inactive brothers into the chapter. o J. P. DIXON Omicron Lambda 1. Institute and practice the systemof rotation of offices. 2 An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Assign slothful brothers to task which will reflect their im-

portance. All of us like a little of the limelight. 3. Hold as many initiations as is expedient and possible. Omicron Lambda Chapter has instituted the following plan for bringing brothers back into the chapter sphere:â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 1. The round-table fashion of discussion, with buffet service. It seems more like a good get-to-gether than a formal meeting which often grows tiresome. 2. Committees are selected to wait upon inactive brothers, discussing the matter of their delinquency in person with them. 3. Fixed meeting dates for the convenience of all or at least the majority of brothers. 4. Brothers underwrite the financial obligations when they some time find the going tough. o WILLIAM M. WOMACK Epsilon Chapter It is felt by this chapter that this matter of getting inactive brothers back into the fold lies, in the main the responsibility of individual chapters. This condition of inactive brothers is felt by the majority of members of Epsilon Chapter to be due to the lack of interest on part of the brother in his chapter or the Fraternity. Therefore, this should be a challenge to the chapter to develop a more interesting program, conduct a better selection of pledges, and a more impressive Sphinx Club program. Maybe the national organization should attempt a program more challenging to the several chapters. There are many men who want to become Alpha brothers and are willing to make any sacrifice to get into the fold. Until there is such a program to challenge their continued interests after they are initiated, we question whether or not this delinquency problem can be solved. Much can be predicted in the case of pledges in accordance to his loyalty and support given to other organizations. o F R E D J. GRIGSBY Theta Lambda In the attempt to regain lost memberships, Theta Lambda Chapter has sent to each brother questionnaires. W e plan to use these to build the chapter activities and regulations around the expressed desires of the brothers. Another motive to increase our active (Turn to Page 12)

H E office of General Counsel is grateful to the Editor of the S P H I N X for the opportunity to publish its views and the views of other lawyers in this column. Each month we will have an article written by the General Counsel or some other lawyer in or outside of the Fraternity. The work and program of this office in the past has been limited to routine matters. W e felt that since the office was an appointed one prior to 1940 and we were responsible to the appointing officer. the General President, our activities ought to be limited. Now that the office is elective and we are responsible to the whole membership we propose to make this office effective in both Fraternity and public life. W e lawyers realize that our common devotion to the ideal oi promoting the orderly progress of civilization and the general welfare of our country and r a c e ; our unity of creed and our common devotion to the science of law. binds us into a close Fraternity. It is well for us to lay aside the cares of Bench and Bar, the engrossing traffic of office and from a new coign of vantage survey the landscape of the past and chart the destiny of the future. We must recapture the enthusiasm of our high calling, realize the great vital interests which are committed to Lawyers and rekindle ideals which will illumine our dark, daily paths of duty. Even to the busiest and most active there come moments when we ask ourselves the purpose of our manifold activities and find ourselves searching for a reassurance that our labors are not in vain, for a justification for what we have done and what we propose to do. As society advances, as the physical cal economic and social problems resciences produce social changes faster quire deviation from legal doctrine. than the social sciences perfect social The urgent and tragic socio-economic controls, and the relations of life beproblems facing the seventeen million come more complex, the disruptions and disorders of our life and enterprise become more subtile and our tasks as lawyers become more arduous. But let us find solace in the words of one whose dynamic intellect and amazing industry, whose instinctive sense of justice touched the heart of the world, Mr. Justice Cardozo. Says he, "Whal industry can master, it is weakness t I lament." 1 W e who do not join the search for some worthier measure of our w o r k ; w-ho are unaware of the necessity for hard labor, for heroic, lonely thinking; who are lacking in a sense of social justice, are mere mechanics in the held of human relations, tinkering with human problems, repairing damaged hearts and dispairing souls. We are not only ethically and professionally obscene, we are technically obsolete. Mr. Justice Holmes wrote, "Law is the calling of thinkers' We must become counsel for the public, mediators of human affairs possessing width and depth of comprehension, serenity of outlook, catholicity of sympathy and' sedulous devotion to the larger tasks and responsibilities.

(2) W h a t shall we do effectively to utilize our annual two billion dollar purchasing power in such a way that disorder, discrimination and distress will be eliminated from our life and enterprise ? The active ideas and the lighting hearts of many practicing lawyers in and out of Alpha Phi Alpha in our economic and legal crusade are giving impetus to our ideological advance. Out of the lights we are making there has emerged a new socio-legal philosophy and new legal-economic weapons which we are using t > the g eat benefit of larger areas of Negro life—labor, education, polities, land. Out of the impact of ideological and technical advance there has emerged a new philosophy and a new technique which we are using effectively for our people.

March, 1941 that Negroes are no longer economic sparrows waiting to be devoured by the eagles and buzzards of organized greed and power. Here is a challengeing crusade for the lawyers in and out of our Brotherhood. O u r job is to shift the battle from the barren ground of precedent and logic to the fertile soil oi social function and economic need, born out of the context of the changing experience of the present, and by so much, to make a new and enduring contribution to the process of constitutional interpretation and the achievement of social justice, the kind of justice Judge Cardozo spoke about, " W h a t we ar2 seeking," says he, "is not merely the justice that one receives when his rights and duties are determined by the law as it is, what we are seeking is the justice to which law in its making should conform." This kind of justice may be achieved only if we master the facts of economics, sociology and politics, and of private enterprise and boldly recast our political and economic policies and recut our legal pattern so that all men may be guaranteed their inalienable rights—the right of life, liberty, pursuit of happiness, equal protection under the lav/ and a measure of economic security and political freedom. Unless we do the minority groups in America will suffer the atrocities of the Jews in Germany and Austria. U n less we do those dangerous beasts, those mad dogs of Europe, Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin—will be on the loose in our land if they are not already. T h e y may accomplish their cruel purpose and may destroy our fair garden of democracy. the last refuge of liber'tyThe American ideal of government is no longer a government of men, but a government of the people, bv the people nnd for the peop'c seeking social justice. By so much, the function of the law and the duty of the lawyer is to aid in making legal justice conform to our contemnorary conception of social justice. W e . as apostles of a living law and leaders of a minority croup, in our quest for some measure of security and stability, as far as law ran cuarantee them, must understand the mechanics of change in the deepening and broadening world crisis.

Sportstopic by Jimmy Woods, of the Brooklyn Eagle January 29, 1941 Prof. Clair (the Busy) Bee loses his great, big beautiful Dolly tonight. Yes, big Dolly King—his widowed mother calls him William—plays his last game of basketball for Professor Bee's Long Island University team against Butler in the Garden. So the big colored star, who has been the top hand of the Black-bird tossers for the past two years, bows out, and from now on it may be all uphill for Professor Bee and his lads through the remainder of the season. T h e P r o fessor says so himself. You can almost detect the trace of a tear as he bewails his loss. Well any coach of a consistently successful basketball squad should be excused for display of .i little lachrymose over the loss of a star of Dolly's stature and status. F o r the Dolly has been more than the answer to a coach's prayer. A Dolly come only one to a box. Just to give you an idea— Throughout his L. I. U. career he has averaged 8.5 points a game. In 22 Garden games he has scored 149 points for an average of 6.8 markers. In all, he has played in 105 games and netted 897 points, and the statistics don't reveal his defensive strength or what it has meant to the Blackbirds. You also will peer in vain into the record book to learn Professor Bee's big Dolly probably was the greatest wrecker of invading reputations on the Garden Floor. And through it all Dolly King's clean play and sportsmanship has been sharply etched against the background of his career. Those who have seen Garden games know that he has absorbed more than his share of "business" from visiting teams, more than his share of offensive language and abuse. Yet he never lost his head. H e never resorted to foul play or retorted with off-color

rejoinders. H e




never bulk

March, 1941 BETA SIGMA CHAPTER SOUTHERN UNIVERSITY To our Brothers in Alphadom, Greetings : F r o m far above Scott's Bluff, Beta Sigma Chapter sends its greetings to the members of the fraternity. Off to an excellent start this year Beta Sigma Chapter is forging ahead to maintaining its place of prominence which it so rightfully deserves and which it will never relinquish. At present, plans are being formulated for the annual celebration of "Education For Citizenship Week" which will he held between April 21 and April 27, and during which time it is the hope of Beta Sigma to make this one of the most impressive to date. This year has been one of success for Beta Sigma. Brother Ulysses Jones, Co-Captain of this year's football team was selected on the Atlanta World and Chicago Defender's All American" teams. It is needless to say that Brother Jones was a "virtual thorn" in his opponent's sides. Other brothers who played a prominent part on the gridiron this season w e r e : Leonard Clark and Ulis Shelton. Beta Sigma Chapter has nine more names inscribed on its scrolls since the fateful night of December 18, 1940. The neophyte brothers a r e : L. Bickham, Samuel Goodlowe, Louis James, Elmo Jones, Phil Robinson, Judge K. Rowley, Wilber Rowley, E x r a Scott and Frank Walker. The Sphinx Club is progressing with a very fine group of prospects. It is our hope that they will prove themselves worthy to be called brothers in the future. Best wishes to all Chapters in their activities of the spring. Fraternally, C. B.

H E American Negro represents roughly one-tenth of the population of this country. His loyalty to the nation has been demonstrated throughout die history of the republic. He was first tc shed blood in defense of the American Colonies. His toil and devotion helped build the Great Republic of the Western Hemisphere. Because of his loyalty and sacrifices in toil and sweat and blood and tears while building this nation, the N e g r o is entitled to state emphatically his position and stand on the present national defense efforts and his attitude on the war of the democracies against dictatorships. The Chicago Pan-Hellenie Council, representing a federation of eight Greek-letter fraternities and sororities, herewith sets forth its position and stand on these grave and vital matters : 1. Because America has taken a stand against aggression, autocracy and despotism, even though she has not al-

ways practised these principles at home with reference to Negroes, as loyal Americans we join wholeheartedly with the rest of the nation and support our Government one hundred per sent in its defense of democracy. At the same time, we take a firm stand against discrimination and segregation based on color. W e call upon the President of the United States, the Congress, the National Defense Administration, Governors of our States, State Legislatures, the Army, Navy and Air Corps, and upon all essential industries, engaged in producing munitions and war materials, to employ our citizens without regard to race, color, creed or condition. We declare it to be the duty of the United States to make necessary laws guaranteeing to all of its citizens the unabridged privilege and right to share fully and completely in all branches of national defense and patriotic services. We call upon the President and Congress of the United States and our several S T A T E S to enact and enforce such laws. 2. The Chicago Pan-Hellenic Council views with alarm the present catastropic conflict in Europe with its world-wide implications. W e are alarmed at the spread of racialism, ha-



E N T A T I V E plans were being formulated for the annual meeting of this organization which will be held in NasJiville, Tenn. At press time Mrs. Joanna H. Ransom, chairman of the Council, reports that the various member organizations have shown keen interest in the work since the last annual meeting. This year's meeting is expected to be one of the outstanding meetings for the Council, for it will center around reports from the various local councils and the extensive report covering activities of the National P r o -

gram Committee. In addition to these reports, it is expected that definite plans pointing toward increased activity and expansion will be worked out at the annual meeting. The idea has been proposed that representatives attending this annual meeting begin now to think in terms of how the National P a n - H e l lenic Council can help the member organizations enlarge and extend their own work. To this end, the slogan, EVERY GREEK AN ACTIVE G R E E K , will be utilized to the fullest extent for it is felt that the Council

tred and prejudices throughout the world. We deplore the agony, bloodshed, destruction and deprivations suffered by so many thousands of human beings. We glory in the gallantry, heroism and courage of the R. A. F . We praise the iron will, steel fibre and indomitable spirit of Greece. We suffer with Ethiopia, France and all victims of aggression in their present plight. W e take our stand with democracy and pledge our complete loyalty and support in its defense, at home and abroad. W e declare it to be our conviction that all Negro citizens in America should cooperate completely and fully with the supreme effort now being made by our National Government and the American people to give Great Britain "every possible aid short of wan" in its heroic and sustained efforts in defense of democracy in Europe. We are convinced that in so doing we are contributing to the final defense of democracy in the United States, the Western Hemisphere, and the world at large. T o this end, we call upon all Negroes to join with us in a maximum effort to defend those principles whose survival alone will guarantee true democracy, equality and justice for all. itself can grow and develop only to the extent that the separate fraternities and sororities go on and upward. The National Program Committee under the guidance of Professor S. Randolph Edmonds, has gone forward with a dynamic program consisting of further development of the P a n - H e l lenic Book Club, which will publish and circulate the best work of Negro authors, as well as completing an Artists' Circuit among the local P a n Hellenic Councils which will route artists into the more important cities of this country.

March, 1941 One of the most dynamic addresses to be delivered in the history of the Oklahoma Association of Negro Teachers was that by Dr. Charles Wesley, dean of the graduate school of Howard university, who spoke during the annual program of the O. A. N. T., in the Municipal Auditorium. Dr. Wesley chose for the subject of his oration, "Dynamic Leadership in Education." I n the course of his speech he stated that there are important factors necessary to give that type of leadership in education and enumerated them as follows: teaching youth how to think, encouraging them to believe in themselves, during which he cited examples of great civilizations of Italy, Greece and Germany as a result of the second factor. However, Dr. Wesley made it plain he did not wish to imply that youth of today should be taught that they are supreme as has been done in Germany under the iron rule of Hitler. The third important factor emphasized by Dr. Wesley was preparedness, as preparation was a means of getting an insight into the future. H e read from Roger Backron an example of this type, in which the present modern inventions were foreseen in the thirteenth century. Regarding Negro youth he criticized the modern history text book in which every possible advancement is ascribed to the white race and much effort made to depict the black man as secondary. H e stated, however, that long ago when the Angles, Jutes and Teutonic tribes of Europe were in a state of savagery, the black man had a highly developed civilization. Dr. Wesley ended his address with an appeal to Negro teachers to give that dynamic leadership so important to the development of the youth and cease the mechanical methods of teaching, awaiting for pay day. A distinguished orator, Dr. Wesley is a native of Kentucky and received his education at Fisk university academy and college. H e has served in various capacities on H o w a r d university faculty and was at one time director of Research Projects Institute of Social and Religious Research, New York, 1927, he was general president of the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, 1931-40. H e is also secretary of the board of trustees of Fisk university, Nashville, Tenn., and has had published many articles in scholarly magazines.

"The tumult and shouting dies, the captains and the kings depart." The Eagle shimmering in its stainless steel streamline shell rolls out of Union Station bearing on its softly cradled, shock absorbed bosom the last of the Hellenic traters, sorors and visiting barbarians to whom Kansas City has been a Christmas Mecca. Cone are the symbolic hailing signs, the mysterious fingerings that featured each handicap, the unintelligible gibberish called passwords. T h e convention is over, the delegates have departed, Kansas City regains its normal blood pressure. Our thoughts go back to convention scenes, events and personalities. W e rind ourselves seeking post mortem explanations during philosophical musings. Among the many nne features that characterized the minute planning, the expert application of administrative efficiency and the high tide of chapter hospitality, what if anything could be selected from the past convention for microscopic viewing? W h a t , no Smoker 1—During the recent years, the sedate Symposium has supplanted the old fashioned Smoker. T h e sociologist and the dispenser of pedagogic lore has superseded the fraternal reconteur. N o longer do the fellows gather for clever repartee and witty anecdotes. No longer do the Munchaus e n vie with the Micawbers. N o longer is the Puckish spirit of the campus, the undergraduate jovialty or the sophomoric hilarity in evidence. Graying graduate brothers and baldish post-graduate degree pursuers speak with Delphian aloofness and ambiguity to a Sanhedrin like gathering who as Brother Dr. Felton Clarke says "hears more and more, about less and less until finally after a series of symposiums at a series of conventions they begin to know absolutely everything. about nothing." Let us bring back the old fashioned, inspirational story telling and prude-shocking smokers at our conventions. Not all the amateur De Maupassants are dead—yet! Full Speed A h e a d ; — T h a t sounds all right in nautical parlance but at our

conventions it is taking on a reality that destroys the beauty of parliamentary assembly. Officers distribute mimeograph copies of their real and fancied activities and append statistical addenda and financial legends which for sheer comptometer accuracy are astounding. One of these days somebody is going to overspend his allottment by one dollar and seventy-seven cents and the auditors will forthwith faint. 1 always thought my wife was the only person who could spend right down to the penny any weekly appropriation or budget allowance. Following this mimeographical evidence came a series of machine gun essays with a drum fire of script reading that would put a Supreme Court Clerk to shame. Committee chairmen and secretaries rattle over hasty treated reports. Haste and h u r r y ; no beauty of diction, no compositional elegance or eloquence. This pace continues throughout the convention. It is tolerated a t the sessions and encouraged at the elections. Let us decelerate. Let us have more forensics. Let us not sabotage the most precious gift of the race—oratory. Mutual Admiration Period!—I don't believe I would bite my nails, splutter and stammer if I were suddenly confronted with and introduced to the President of the United States. I am mildly iconoclastic about public heroes and notables but I didn't get my fill of meeting, observing or fellowshipping with the notables a t our convention. Of course you will say that the whole fraternity is a composite Who's W h o and an Alpha convention is a wholesale conglomeration of national notables. But I lament the passing of an introduction period where the McGraws, the Lloyd Halls, the Billy Jones', the Dunbar McLaurins can be identified and presented with a verbal abbreviated biographical sketch. There was class and quality at Kansas City, there was class at New York, there will be educational and ecclesiastic excellence at Louisville. Let it be k n o w n ! If modesty prevents a Brother Hodge from letting me know on Monday that he is the principal of the beautiful Sumner H i g h school which someone has smuggled

me in 10 admire on Sunday let us have a convention social secretary to identify those men, or better still let us revive the old Mutual Admiration Period and I will tell the boys who you are and what you a r e trying to do to elevate the race if you will lie a little bit about me too. F o u r college presidents, one bishop, one judge, three deans, Maceo Hill and Sylvester Smith, recent national tennis champions; M. C. Ferguson aiid Henry Boyd, real live bankers sitting at your elbow and the candle only flickers. I hope Lionel Newsome, L. H . Schuster, J. T. Gillam, A. L. Allen, T. H . Hayes, A. D . V. Crosby and many others will come to Louisville where they can be known for what they are and for what they a r e contributing to racial eminence. Let us have a visible Alpha Hall of Fame. Relaxation and Contemplation 1—The Convention P r o g r a m is not in Competition with the railway time table. Our activities don't have to be regimented. T h e program will be just as attractive even if there are huge blocks of unassigned hours. One should relax two hours each day. T h e Yogi theory of spiritual regeneration is based on relaxation and it is productive of contentment and radiant health. Personally, I want enough free time to write home to the wife without making mistakes. While at the convention I intended to w r i t e : "Having a good time. W i s h you were here." Instead, I w r o t e : H a v i n g a good time. W i s h you were her." T h e full use of the first convention day for specific convention business will free us from the hysterical around-the-clock activities of the later days. W h e n shall I see your city? When can I meander unregimented about your town, visit your parks, see your industries, compare your slums with my slums. Don't gorge me on "open houses." I want to see some of the closed houses too. Orientation!—If you have any modern features let me have them in moderation.

After the Chapter, through its letters and delinquent committee, has taken action, it then appoints each active member as a special committee of one to talk to these delinquent brothers whenever they see them.

Zora Neale Hurston, one of the foremost novelists of our race, has in Moses: Man of the Mountain achieved her greatest success. An anthropologist by training, she has made special studies into the character of the Negro as he was when he first arrived in America. The results of this work she covered in Mules and Men and Tell My Horse. Both are inquiries into the voodoo practices and witchcraft of the Negro in America and in Haiti. T h a t the Negro is particularly susceptible to the influence of magic is generally accepted. Because of this tendency Moses, more than any other Biblical character, holds a peculiar fascination for him. In another way Moses makes a direct appeal to the N e g r o ; he set his people free. H e was the great emancipator; he is the symbol of deliverance. The enslavement and persecution of the Hebrews in Egypt is analogous to the slavery and perse cution of the Negro in America. Upon Moses from the point of view of the Negro Zora Neale Hurston has based her fifth novel. It is the biography of Moses as the Negro sees him â&#x20AC;&#x201D;the great voodoo man of the Bible. We see Moses as prince, warrior, priest, husband, father, and, finally as liberator. Woven all through this account of his life is Moses as the m a g i c i a n he sends the 10 plagues to E g y p t ; he makes a pathway across the Red S e a ;

golden calf. He wins our admiration in his efforts to reconcile the discordant elements among his people when he might have raised his right hand and struck them dead. Miss Hurston's subordinate cl.atacters are equally as vivid. Aaron and Miriam, the brother and sister of Moses, a r e avaricious and crafty. Zipporah makes the most of her position as wife of the leader. It is Jethro, her father, the wise old priest of Midian, that prepares Moses for his great task through his wise guidance and counsel. The most striking aspect of the novel is the language. It is that of the American Negro with all its idioms and figures of speech. Homely phisosophy springs up here and there. When Moses is considering his work with the Israelites just before he dies he muses: " . . .

Sholeni Asch, Jew by race and Pule by birth, is an internationally known playwright and novelist. Recognized as a talented writer by the reading public, in his "The Nazarene" he proves himself to be an exhaustive historical scholar. "The Nazarene" is a Jew's interpretation of the life of Christ. It is the story of his birth, his life, and his deatli as taken from the accounts of a Roman governmental official and a young Jewish student who both lived in the time of Christ. By reincarnating them into modern character Mr. Asch is able to bring together these different points of view. The novel has a dull beginning in the twentieth century when one P a n Viadomsky, a Polish scholar, takes on a young Jewish student to help him decipher an ancient Hebrew manuscript. Pan Viadomsky turns out to be the reincarnation of Cornelius, the official representative of Pontius Pilate in Jerusalem; the young Jew, the reincarnation of Joseph, a student of Nicodemus ; and the ancient Hebrew manuscript is nothing less than a part of the gospel according to the disciple Judas Iscariot. The dual nature of the two characters Pan Viadomsky and the Polish Jew is weak and not even a little convincing. Moreover, the transition they make (Turn to Page 15)

ALONG THE LEGAL FRONT (Continued from Page 6) and legal technique a new and abiding legal philosophy that will bring peace and security to men. Liberty is not worth having if it means regular visits by the scourge of war and depression such as we have had in this generation. The eighteenth century conceptions of liberty and law and private property are no longer moral law or legal justice by which the people enslaved, can be freed from the thraldom of drudgery and economic slavery. With these ends in view we shall discover the appropriate means. Our technique will be to find, filter, focus, face and follow the facts, to peer, to pry and proclaim a new tactic and a new leadership that will drive those evil angels—race hatred, poverty and injustice from the land. Before our death sentence is passed, let us perform our tasks and in that performance we may discover new resources of vitality, new confidence in reason and philosophy, new will to freedom and new faith in the imperishable splendor of our destiny. The lawyer-statesman, when he rises to the nobler conception of his profession, becomes in a measure the impressario of the collective life of his people, he lures all of the specialisms of business, or politics, of economics and of labor, out of their air-tight compartments and welds them together into a fighting fraternity for the common good. T h e law is not a "brooding omnipresence in the sky,'' 1 but the articulate voice and will of the people. T h e processes and rational of history and the traditions of our profession call upon us to submit our legal heritage, our social, economic and political premises and our various organizational objectives to critical appraisal, bravely to advance what Thomas Mann speaks of as the coming Victory of Democracy, to realize that true greatness is not in bigness nor money nor power, but in our zeal to serve, that the charter of our liberties must be paid for in tears, perhaps in blood; that as Rabindrinath Tagore says, "Our offerings are not for the temple at the end of the road, but for the wayside shrines that surprise us at every turn." W e must be on constant guard against regimentation and tyranny. W e must be mindful of the ancient admonition of Plato that the "secret of liberty is courage." (Turn to Page 16)

Steeped in the history of the Jews of this period, Sholem Asch recaptures and recreates in the book the turbulent spirit of the time. This is Jesus and his times made real for us. The temple at Jerusalem throbs with life. There are the Sadducees and the Pharisees quarreling over ritual observances.

time in May. Mr. Paukey is a young baritone who has been studying abroad for ten years. During that time he has sung in every capital in Europe. Before going to Europe, he studied at Hampton under Mr. Dett, and at Ober1 iu Conservatory, lie sang in Town Hall last year and in Chicago at the National Association of Negro Musician-. He received high praise from artists and critics alike, which places him among the front ranks of our younger Negro artists. Greek Utter groups and local Pan-Hellenic Councils interested in presenting this young artist should get in touch with Prof. Edmonds, Dillard University, New Orleans.

"The Nazarcnc" is more than a novel about Jesus—it is a deliberate attempt to transfer the guilt for the crucifixion from the Jews to the Romans. Willi this purpose in mind Sholem Ascli tells the story of the trial of Jesus in direct contradiction to that in the Bible. T h a t "The Nazarene" is a masterpiece cannot be denied. For a vivid delineation of Christ, for an accurate reconstruction of life in Jerusalem 20 centuries ago, this is the book to read —Reviewed by Lucretia Matthews
