By THZ FLYTNQ "Ah come to a ribber and ah couldn't fee across, So ah jump pon a oiggah an' ah rid him like a hone." BLUMSTEIN'S "HORSES" I couldn't just say what river Mrs. L. M, Blumstein crossed be. tort shi arrived at that luxurious apartment which she occupies at 327 Central Park West, and which she pays for with the money she - takes from Negroes in Harlem, but I do know she rode those same Negroes like horses yes, even like dumb jackasses to got there. Perhaps at ope time she sniffed the sweet sewerey aroma of the East River from some slum dump on the lower East side then perhaps cane the Harlem store and she and her beloved soon found a few - Ntgroes on whose backs (pockets) she could ride over the Harlem River into the Bronx. But this may . - r r i Ciugnter oi pnem wore norses crossed the Harlem River. As I say, I don't know but I an gaze on - the b:autics of Central dare not show his nose except as a servant, or if you prefer it "slave." Is Mrs. Blumstein grateful to the Negroes who feed and : clothe her and pay her rent? Oh no, my friends! V She puts a few Negroes to run her elevators but when it comes to hiring some of ; the clean cut youngsters that the high schools and business schools ire turning out, their skins are too BLACK to stand behind her coon ters and sell her gocds to black people. One f our respected min. i$ - rs goes to her and she laughs in his face. She as, much aJ dares him to do his wryse. She feels so sure of the "horses" she has been riding all these years that she has no fear of their bolting. She thinks a few dollars to charity now and then is all she owes to the community that supports her and her family. As a Jew she is much concerned with Hitler's oppression of her people, but, as that same Jew, she oppresses the hell out of Negroes. Something is wrong folks. What are the Negroes of Harlem going to do about it? Are they going to remain Blumstein's patient jsckasses or are they going to bolt and leave them flat in the middle i uotn nreetr JilLLl 's m But for the kindness of Charles W.

Hill took back the cake and ice cream bat I wonder what happened to the chickens? " - - tT IS SO EASILY DONE The Rev. John H. Johnson of St Martin's could not answer Blumstein's refusal to hire Negro clerks, but the Negroes of Harlem an do so ever so easily. Simple DONT GO THEREI I see irom their advertisement in the . Blumstein is.offenng a list of goods i from Fibre Rugs at $3.98 to I yard of Printed Percale at 12 cents. The newspaper prob - bly gets $21 for that advertisement (I doubt it) and for those few iusy dtllars is willing to be another "horse" for Blumstein to ride to Central Fark West on. , Advertisements notwithstanding, :1 Harlem turn their backs cn rvery Negro writer and speaker in the white clerks and their families spend that money where they live. a tales checks sn two weeks. Blumstein took in at least $30,000 from Negroes in those two weeks and those elevator boys didn't get 100 of it between them. Harlem was therefore the lever by about V,).

Abraham Levy and Dramin Jones, and is probably without parallel in the annals of Prince Hall Masonry. The jurisdiction of New York did, at one time, maintain what was known as the "Committee on Foreign Relations." It was conceived in the mind of the late David W. Parker who was Grand Master from 1918, until his demise in 1924. The origin! committee consisted of Arthur A. Schomburg, chairman; Harry A. Williamson and Claudius E. Cyril. Its labors consisted in creating and maintaining fraternal relations with ' both bodies and individuals in foreign countries. Under the guidance of that committee, the efforts proved very successful and for a long period an intimate correspondence was maintained with brethren in England, Norway, Germany, Canada. Sooth Africa India, Australia, New Zealand, Austria and other countries. Brother Harry A. Williamson, the secretary of the committee at one time for many years held membership in the Correspondence Circles of a number of foreign literary Masonic lodges. Several of the constituents of Grand Lodge, such as those located in Buffalo, Utica, Yonkers, New Rochelle and Brooklyn, hold meetings in their own buildings. Other Lodges on the register of Grand Lodge are situated in Burlington, Vt, and the Bahamas Islands. Uniaue constituents also on the register are: "Hijos del Caribe, No. 75 " and "Igualdad No. 77. Jews are the advocates of the boycott of German foods, the Negro should blame the Jews for depreciation of me price of cotton if Germany withdraws from this market or lim its her purchases of cotton in the United States. . On the surface, that looks plausible, just as all other specious ideas advanced by Girmans v their own cause seem rational But, whatever the Germans do knowingly they never deliberately "cut oS their own nose to spite their toce. - When they buy our cotton it is because they need it and their recent purchases have been at prices much below the cost ot production to the farmer.

Prince Hall Lodge No. 3H. originally known as "El Sol de Cuba No. 38." was originally a Spanish - speaking body, and consisted of exiles from Cuba and Porto Rico. At the cessation of the Spanish - American War, the greater portion of its membership returned to their na tive lands in order to maintain the Lodge upon the register. Grand Lodge permitted its change into an English - speaking group. Past Grand Secretary, Arthur A. Schn - burg, who has been a member of that Lodge, during his early activities, translated the records from Spanish into English. The jurisdiction of New York is the only one tbrmghout the Unit ed States that makes use of what is known as a "Chronological Warrant" in the formation of hs constituents. This document prepared through the collaboration of Past Grand Secretary, Arthur A. Schomburg and Past Grand Historian Harry A. Williamson, recites in chronological order the history of Freemasonry among the American Negroes from its inception in 1775, follcwsd with its origin in the State of New York, and progress therein, down to and including the adoption of the addition cf its title of the phrase "Prince Hall" in 1919. Among the items in the author's collection pertaining ' to Freemasonry in New York, are: .' any of the causes that lead Germany to such extremities further than the boycott affects their export sales. For the latter, Allah be praised! The only way to reach the German conscience is through his pocket - book.' His reasoning powers are so ob structed with the race superiority compex and "Deutxhland ueber al - les" that he is obtuse. The Negro and colored races form such a small portion of the popula tion of Germany, as to be negligible. Yet they sow the seeds of hatred toward these peoples because the color of their skin differs from that of the white aryanl In this connection, it should be recalled that the Germans take their cue from the ex - Kaiser, who during the World War. in the midst of Utiles, objected to the use of colored troops by the French armies. The Germans protested the occu pation of their country by sene galese and colored troops alter toe armistice and made effective propaganda in this country, charging the colored troops with atrocious assaults upon German girls and women and compulsory cohabitation with' them. Upon investigation it was revealed that their illicit relations were solicited upon the initiative of white girls. who to the extent of sue thousand became mothers of these unwanted children now to be taken into cus tody, sterilized to avoid further reproduction of color, and segregated br the German government and henceforth to be labelled as inferior people.

Unless counter argument is ' adduced, unless the Huns can be stopped in their tracks, they will cause a revision of race hatred and Ku Klux - ism in the south that wilt be a re - , vival of the past horrors. These German propagandists figure everything in dollars and cents, expect others to do likewise, hence it will be easy to convert the south to their nefarious scheme. They certainly do not favor amalgamation or even cooperation of the whites and Negroes of the south, but if they can achieve implacable hatred of the Jews, try both factions, it will be a triumph that will be heralded from the Swanee River to the Rhine ard will sooner or later result in an auto de fe that will make the massacres of the past seem like a picnic in comparison.

And Its ASIDE FROM ITS purely monetary features of benefit, the Pall - man Porters Benefit Association renders' constructive service ta the porters' group, in many other stance, is the memorial services which are held in the various Pullman districts each year for departed members. Prior to its birth no such observances were ever held. Now (hey are annual events. In looking back to those old days, cne would be indeed callous not to appreciate these services. Then too, they have another effect. They have a tendency to foster and keep alive that quality of cohesion which is so necessarily vital to group fratermlisra and beneficence. In this respect, the association has performed a ' commendable work. These services have not only been a medium through which the porters' group has been able to pay fitting tribute to its dead, but they have been the means of acquainting the variou - munities with the type oi men who are connected with the group. For example, over in Roxbury, Mass., - which is a part of the City af Boston, - ' the local bdees of the association in that city recently, held their annual services. These were observed at St Mark's Congregational Chur - h, one of the well known religiois homess in ' Roxbury, and aside Contract Bridge BY MAS STYLES Jensen and - Jensen ' won top score in last alonUay evening's game ' at" the Little Studio, 06I Jiacon street. Mr. Jensen has directed these tournaments throughout the entire season, and is highly esteemed by the patrons ot the studio for the thorough manner in which he conducts the tournament He is thoroughly acquainted with the Grunthal method of "tournament playing." This, together with his wonderful patience, tact and ability to handle groups, . the tournament has gone on smoothly, and has proved., a. source cf pleasure to. all the contract players of Brooklyn. Gray, Talbot, Grant, Gilmer, Martin and Drayton were always ready to lend a hand to sre that the scores were correctly checked, and that each player got an even break. Consequently, the original idea of a contract tournament in Brooklyn, has been All and More than was hoped for. The following is a hand contained in Board 18, the opponent's mistake enabled the declarer to make the contract: Sooth Dealer - North S - A J 10 9 3 3 2 H None D K 8 3 C - K 7 2, , West .

Hands that can almost play themselves are not interesting. The hand at which yoo steal a trick, or give your opponents a chance to make a mistake; and it works, is always more - atei citing. North and Sxith, by bidding bravely, and allowing a chSnce for their opponents tt make a mistake, made their contract ' , The bidding - here would h termed ' quite optimistic by most players. The play was thought 00 1 carefully. When the Queen of ncans ico, me oeaier could see that while two losing diamonds could be discarded on the ace and king of hearts, the opponents rould. rake the ace of diamonds and ace of clubs. If both the mistine sees m u.. - a. 1 - m a . . held in one hand there would be no chance to make the contract But South reasoned that, if the aces were divided he might give his opponents a chance to make a. mistake and thereby win. Instead of discarding a losing diamond from dummy, which would cause the opponent to lead diamonds, he caused the oooonent to believe he held strencth in dis. monas, oy concealing bis strength in ntarxs. - He did not take the first heart trick with his ace or king, but ennnpen in cum my wrtn the two of clubs, then played the king of clubs, which west took with the ace. Spades had been denied by South in the bidding; so the spade now led, and the hand was spread for sis club. . , Lelia, Jersey City.
