THE NEW YORK AGE. SATURDAY. APRIL 9. 1949 Pegs 13 CVW JWVl&liS nit i rw . n I) Copyright in USA, IMS. Reproduction Forbidden LETTER FROM A LONESOME MAN My mailbox to full. Some letters beat my brains out. Others pat rat on the back. Some aak for help. Many are what I call - prowem reuera. Here's one: - ""Dear Dan: Maybe you or tomt of your many readers might help me out I've read lettera f rqm time to lime m your columns and figured the same privilege was open to me since I've been a Dan Burley man for years. Here's my story: I'm not unique where guys are concerned. In fact, I like to consider myself average. But am I? I'm 86 and' my mirror and some of the people whom I get around with say I'm pass able when It comes to looks. I've posed in one of my weak moments for some of those, advertisements they use in Negro newspapers and magasines, but I hurry to assure .you that I did it for the fee" and not for any mistaken notion about my looks or an overdose of personal vanity. Tve got a good Job to which I returned following my hitch la the army. I had a nice nest egg salted away before the war and the 4 money I made while a 01 has been added to it so I can be comfortable for quite s few years to come, I hope, whether I work or not. But, Dan, I'm lonesome and bewildered. My parents are out i West and I have no sisters or brothers. I live alone In my own four room apartment which my housekeeper maintains spotlessly and Immaculate. I require that They say that women get desperate when they haven't landed a man for keeps by the time they are 90. Now I don't want any of these young chicks, I want one who knows the score. Well, I'm getting desperate likewise because I havent landed a permanent house mate. Tve gone around with many girls all sorts, all varieties, sises and colors, but I havent found one yet , whom I would trust all the way. That's saying a whole lot and leaves a guy wide open, but If you figure it out youH find that m telling the truth. They all seem interested in how slick they can bo how much the"y can get out of several men, not one; what somebody can or will do for them, not what they can or would do for somebody else. World of MUSIC By W. P.' THOMPKINS I've explored the pastures where our so - cslled society girl grates and I've roamed the range where the not - so - nlce girls play. I've haunted the literary regions the libraries and the discussion clubs in mv quest and have come up with the inevitable blank. Tve wandered in the outdoor places where they play games and in the Indoor spots where they put on sports events and I've taiKea wun me women bi.iiu u inland the answer is usually the same. I don't know what it is but there seems to be some kind of chemicalization in the air these women breaths that givea them the Idea that their main object In life in to get somebody to do something for them, tou tane one ox wm wui the first thing she wants to know in so many words la what is In it for mer Not necessarily cash money In hand, but who can they meet by going around with a guy; can he help them out In some way or just the plain notoriety of being with the fellow who is buying the. drinks or driving the big cream - colored Cadillac parked at the curb. No matter how sincere they aeem to be in the beginning, they wind up on the same note or trying to be slick in some way or tne outer. "Sure, I match fire with fire. I have to. Otherwise I'd blew my top trying to figure this thing out Not that I've got anything worthwhile or so wonderful that I've got to be on my guard to keep somebody from taking something from me. It's Just the principle of the matter. I want somebody to care for me all the way; somebody who wants to see me get ahead because they automatically , know that they'll go as far as I do; somebody who tout selfishly looking for divers ten, entertainment thrills aad so on at someone etoe's expense. Too dont find those qualities in these girls, Dan. They have too much animal in them aad it shewn la what they have to say and kow they move about The getting of a fur coat, a ride la an auto, a dinner or payment of the room rent shouldn't be made a barrier which keeps out true regard, affection aad romance out of an affair between a maa aad the wemaa of his choice, rm lonesome, Dan. I'm damned lonesome and bewildered.

Jam esssloaa, aadieaco participnOoa la "Troubled blond" The world premiere of Troubled. Island", attracted a capacity crowd on Thurs - d ay n I g h t , March 31, and it was evident that all pros oat wanted to 'see and hear what William Grant Still and Langs - ton Hughes had actually, accom plished. 1ST " r ! j Bill 'CHASE Around Town Needs Your Help THOMPKINS . Highly respected in their fields as composer and poet, these men have, attained and will continue to do so. Their opera, however, did not quite make the mark, in the opinion of this reviewer. The desire of the Haitian slave to revolt against their French masters of the Napoleonic era was un folded in a straightforward man ner. This, naturally, led one to expect a great dramatic Impact as Jean Jacques Xesaallnea, leads tho slaves into tho hills of Haiti to victory at the end of the first act But there, however, one heard the weak Broadway musical idiom ra ther than the strong, masculine to nalities needed to create the true dramatic operatic atmosphere. This was evidenced throughout the second and third acts. The banquet scene of Act 2 at the Palace of the Emperor (Dessa lines) was beautifully staged and the Haitian dances were expertly executed by Jean Leon Destine and his group. The appropriate words, although at times not heard, could be easily followed with the action. The highlights of the evening were found in the ensembles. Here the full harmonic beauty of Mr. Still's work was brought to life. His handling of these choral pas sages is above reproach In their shading, balance and effect The congenuity of the melodic line was best presented by the chorus and again by the duet of Vuval, a mulatto, and Claire, the mulatto Empress, in ue second act The majority of the other passages were more or less in the recltaUve form. Troubled Island" proved that' Mr. SOU and Mr. Hughes have the necessary qualifications to combine their talents and bring to us something that the world of music wants, that being' new ideas whether as an opera or musical comedy. Above alt their first attempt was accepted in earnest without false sentiment or apol ogies. That it was not the success expected Is not important There will - be future performances of the opefa and we hope, with oil due respect to conductor Lasso Halasx, a more thorough and convincing interpretation of the score. The dates are Sunday, April 10, and Sunday, May L As to individual performers, Ro bert - Weede was most convincing In his portrayal of Dessallnes; Marie Powers as Aaelia, Slavs wife of Dessallnes, displayed the most per suasive and dramatic Interpreta tion of the evening: Helen Bliss, of recen Broadway fame, appear ed as Claire, the unfaithful mis tress of Dessallnes;. Richard Charles as the traitor Vuval, all made their operatic debut la the vehicle. The choruses and dance en sembles displayed wonderful show manship and all In all made for pleasant evening to be remem bered for sometime Misled rVitivd Premier performances of com missioned works by Psul Hlndc - mlth and Randall Thompson and were found In the ensembles.'

Views of s Former Union Man Since my article on the case of dining car employees, I have been the recipient of a number of letters on that subject I received a lengthy one the other day from a former aining car union man, now working for the Federal government, which contains some interesting views regarding the case. For employment reasons I am withholding his identity, but, for convenience, will call him John Doe. Doe was one of the pioneers in the dining car union field. His activities go back to the days when John R. Smart, of the New York Central, and H. H. Baker, of the Penn sylvania, ruled the dining car service of tnese two systems with an iron hand. While hogans radical changes have been made in railroad labor laws unce those days, giving greater latitude and protection to all groups or workers m labor - management relations, Doe contends that, despite this, fundamentally, the lot of dining car workers hasn't improved to any great extent over the days of his activities. u is w Not ConfoBfnable To begin with, he says you can not throw tho dining car cook and waiter in the xaJlroad..labor melting pot and bring forth a working pattern conformable to modern - day union practices, prin ciples and objectives. The economic, mechanic and operative factors in railroad dining car serv ice are all against it, bo declares For ons example, he cKes the labor and union history of Pullman porters. "Every Pullman porter," he writes, "on the Con tinent of North. America was an employee of one industiar, the Pullman Company, Inc, and when hi union secured recognition from the company, It only had to deal with ons management for all the porters. With dining car employees the situation was entirely different Not only did each carrier (except tho San to, Fe, Frisco System) operate Its own dining car service, but no two were operated alike, and not even Congress could legislate them into uniform opera tions. I bad to deal, for instance. with three different railroad managements n Boston la order to represent about MO cooks and waiters. Down la Washington we had to meet with two managements, to represent 600 employees. 'Another difference was that Pullman appreciated the porter as oao of Its major service assets, and while it handled him with consistent firmness so as to Insure discipline, It valued hto worth and would permit no undue advantage to bo taken of him by subordinate Ulcers aad supervisors. On tho contrary, the dining car cook or waiter had bo rights that the aln - lag: ear Inspector or steward was to respect Be oould bo dumped sa route at the least whim without fear of any need to ex - plain a justifiable reason." There havo heea some asodiftca - aa he admits, la too high - beaded treatment of ployces by superior to anion agreements aad viaioa. but they still do aot get tho respect appreciation aad protection to which they are eatiUed as part o( tho railroad srriee, ho eon tends. . Doe thinks that It to peaattoany Impossible to wetd ' dining car cook and waiters late a asUoasl union (l) because of tho dtostm - Ilarity hi tho operattoas of linlag oaiw by the railroads aad (t) tho inability of these employees to finance aad malateia ouch a uaioa. He suggests that it would bo more profitable la tho end for dining ear uaioa ispresintstlvss to stick closely to the iadrridaal to of theis (too la working out doato aad ether trying to effect those thing aa a aatioaal W.
