POLITICAL CHAFF By ARNOLD DeMILLE 1 "Blessed is he who tooteth his own horn, 'less it not be tooted." i That is the philsophy and prac - Ice of most politicians as summed up by Assemblyman James C. Tomas who is running for re election in the 11th A. D. '. He was referring specifically, of course, to former district leader Joseph Pickney whom Lloyd Dickens routed last year and Percy Ellis Sutton, Pinckey's choice to build a fire around Thomas' Assembly seat. At times sile'nce speaks louder than words, Mr. Thomas added. He believes he can honestly ask the people to support him because he has tried to let the public know of him by his deeds and ACTIONS. That speaks louder than anything he can say, he said. CLEAN CAMPAIGN Assemblyman Thomas refuses to say anything uncomplimentary about Mr. Sutton or Atty. Pinck - hey. They both have a right to run for any office they wish, he explained, whether against hira or not. 1 Senator Julius Archibald's head - Quarters on Amsterdam ave. and 145th Street, just around the corner from Tony Rasmus' Truman Democratic club, will now swing into full gear. His petitions are all In and his workers believe he has better than a 50 - 50 chance to upset Atty. James L. "Skiz" Watson in the primaries for the Senatorial seat he is trying to hold. BROWN IS CO - CHAIRMAN Meanwhile, Watson has set up headquarters at the Theresa Hotel and his committee is being formed. Bill Brown, manager of the Theresa, and former state Senator Harold Panken, the man Archibald unseated two years ago, are the co - chairmen. Bob (Renais - lance) Douglas is treasurer and Carrie Thomas, co - leader of the 13 AD, is secretary. Henry A. Tor pins, Lester A. Walton, Atty. Lawrence Bailey and Rev. O'Clay Maxwell, sr., have joined his camp. i Assemblyman Leslie Turner doesn't seem to concerned over the entry of Mrs. Bessie Buchanan on Cecil Carter's slate to unseat him in the 12 AD. He has set up campaign headquarters on Broadway at 162nd St., with state com Friendly Letter To Dot Kilgallen j By. OLIVE A. ADAMS Open letter to Dorothy Kilgallen: Pear Miss Kilgallen: ) For years now, we've followed our daflv syndicated column and found it interesting and stimulat ing. When you took to radio and television we followed you there. We think you have a keen mind, a sense of humor and in most areas, you are well - informed. However, through the years, in your columns, you have often referred to Harlem and its people, and there has been a feeling in many quarters that, judging from your writings, you have not taken the time to be as well informed on Harlem as you should be. i Harlem, as you well know, is considered all over the world as the Negro capital of the United States. Therefore, references to it in widely syndicated columns such as yours are extremely important. So far. we have only found in your columns comments on Harlem that are reminiscent of an era when it was popular to refer to all Negroes as "carefree and happy" and all Negro neighborhoods as dens of vice. INFORMANTS POORLY INFORMED i Since you are so well informed on so many other subjects, it is just possible that you may n o t Quits Truman Club To Join Herb Bruce Camp Carl L. Anduze. a former fin - . ncial secretary of the Truman Democratic Club, 13th Assembly District, East, announced over the week - end the opening of headquarters at 501 W. 145th st., for the election of Herbert L. Bruce, the former headquarters of the Truman Democratic club.

Among her strong supporters Is Mrs. Ruth Whitehead. Whaley j who was the first Negro woman cnosen oy uie Democrats to run for public office. She ran for the Assembly back in the days when Harlem still had a sizeable white population. WHAT ABOUT BRUCE? The big interest is still centered around Congressman Adam Clayton Powell and district leader Herbert Bruce. Powell is still in Europe. It was first reported that he would return last week. Now, according to someone who is close to him, he is due back the middle of the month, probably around the 16th. His chief aides, Acy Lennon and Bill Hampton, just "ain't a talk ing." They won't deny anything or confirm anything. But Bruce isn't being quiet. He says that "Adam Powell and his stooges might deny the things I have in my circular, but they can't come up with anything to disprove them." The public knows they are true, he says, and that's all that countr "Adam knows that he can fool some of the people some of the time," Bruce exclaimed. "But what Adam doesn't know is that he can't fool God none of the time, and he can't fool all the people all the time. He will find that out on September 14. REPUBLICANS ARE QUIET Over in Queens, Atty. Joscelyn E. Smith is dead serious in his campaign to become the Democratic candidate for the Assembly. He has filed petitions to run in the primaries against the white incumbent. He feels it's time for a Negro to get a political break there and his platform calls lor better schools, strong civil rights leeislation and investigations of the practice of Queens banking in - situtions regarding mortgages to Negroes.

It has everything, and it makes its con tribution to the good life we all share. And, since this is true, we object and we think rightly as a neighborhood of superficial, pleasure seeking people who live with no thought for tomorrow.

Unknown (to wolves) Plans 'New Deal' For Models And Modeling By HAL DEWINDT 1 This article is, in fact, an open letter to three charmipg and distinguished women: Miss Barbara Watson, director, Barbara Watson agency; Miss Ophelia DeVore, director, Grace DelMarco agency, and Miss Ann Prince, director, Parkview Studios. These women are engaged in the business of developing charm in Negro women both for personal and business reasons. Some women seek to develop charm and poise merely to be more attractive and desirable to Heir husbands friends and acquaintances; others seek it to sell as models for photographers and designers. The New York Age Defender, aware of the importance of making women more charming and attractive for either or both reasons given above, has initi.ted a department in this newspaper devoted exclusively to this effort NEW AGE DEPARTMENT The reason for this letter to these women is to introduce them to the new department in the Age Defender and a the same time to introduce myself. Having been fortunate enoueh to have been chosen to conduct the department. I readily realize the necessity of getting help from those persons most closely associated with the modeling field. It will be the aim of the department not onlv to help promote the models as lovely mannikins, but to work toward the creation of a new atmosphere around the field itself. We at the Age De fender feel that modeling is a fine profession, and that in the main the girls and boys who have chosen modeling as a career are clean, un - standine and respectable peo ple. We would like to help them. We, therefore, invite the heads of the three principal studios to work with us as a sort of team. In this way it will be possible not only to. make modeling a cherished and lucrative profession, but by improving our women, we will, meanwhile, be making a substantial contribution toward the improvement of the rac. While we invited co - operation of the directors of these agencies, we also would appreciate personal I i ' xxx letters, comments and co - operation from the individual model.
