expensive" of Roses' or any other store of like valuables, and
"gold earrings," I know nothing of the negro men's luxuries.
Probably this is about how much most of them know about such
things. It seems that negroes take more interest in their work
for us than they do in their work for themselves. In the kitchen
old fat Sue Hnds the things which her mistress grumbles about
just mere trifles. And, Yum! Yum! can she hx some "country
messes-not unlike those neat-handed Phyllis dressesf' Out in
the fields old Uncle N oak proves a hatful of fun for his co-workers
and passers-by-in fact anyone who is interested. But, the joy
of the whole negro generation overflows when watermelons go
I wish to join in on the chorus with the happy-go-luckies of
the world by saying that there is no use of Worrying. I..et's all
join in and "laugh and grow fat," or probably some of us had
better say, "laugh and stay fat." n
I arn no good at writingg
I have no pen or ink.
But give rne an honr within a cool bower
And I 'll show you how to think.
I love to sit to' ponder
Upon a question dear-
Wliat is this life, with its love and strife?
The answer is yet to appear.
I know in this wide world over
There're people who gaily sing-
They never mourn, or look forlorn,
Nor think what tomorrow inay bring.
To see the light of Heaven,
I hope they'll east their heads up
And open their eyes, and look with surprise
Upon a new day of hope.
The light is slowly diniining,
I no longer see the hill.
The sun is gone,' I linger on-
I sit and ponder still. '

WHATS THE USE
E ALL like a good joker, do we not? It makes little
difference what kind of predicament we get into if we
have a jolly fun-maker along with us. A Hat tire, for
instance, becomes only an origin for a series of side-splitting
remarks. A, witty happy-go-lucky is the first necessity in a
crowd which is out for fun.
It takes someone above the ordinary to be a joker. Along
with his being quick-thoughted he must be able to throw off his
own worries and then rid the other fellow of his thoughts about
hardships. Likewise, it takes someone above the ordinary to
worry-at any rate to worry a great deal. He ignores little Witty
or foolish remarks and ponders over things about which the usual
person would think little or nothing. Naturally we do not want
to be pessimists and with a square face always look on the dark
side of everything, but we very often benefit from a little' worry.
VVe all do our part of worrying. For instance, we can refer to
our classes in school. Many of us worry a little all along through
the semester while a few prefer to sleep or play all of this time
and as a result, wake up just before examinations and do their
part. Doubtless we proiit by these experiences because they
show us beginnings of what we shall be forced to face in later life.
"Wlzat's the use of worrying?
I if never was worlli 'wlzileg
So, pack up your troubles in
your old kit bag and
Smile! Smile! Smile!"
VVe have all heard the little cheer-up song from which these
lines were take. Obviously the song is intended for those un-
happy soldier boys who bravely face the horrors of war. Not
many of these soldiers could "pack up their troubles in an old kit
bag," but some people worry about such simple, little things that
it does seem that their worries could be packed away in a con-
tainer of this size.
According to my opinion negroes are the happiest people in
the world. Most of them care little for luxuries. A negro
woman's jewelry, as a general rule, consists of a pair of the "most

VERYONE dreams-foolish, vain dreams that can never
be realized, or sane, beautiful dreams that inspire one to
the height of ambitions. Rich or poor, young or old, we
all have our dreams of better days to come and of the happiness
of the past.
The young girl's dreams are a mixture of orange blossoms
and wedding bells, of gallant Romeos and cottages by the sea.
Her dreams-beautiful dreams without a fear of the future. A
The youth-with visions of the day when he will be a chief
executive in the business world, with wealth, luxuries, and can
afford to go to his dream girl and lay his heart and fortune at
her feet. Gay, bright indehnitexdreams of the young.
Dear Aunt Mary, never married, but with a few hopes left
still she dreams foolish, vain dreams as she gazes into the mirror
and thinks how young she looks for one of forty-odd years.
The dreams of the old-scattered, twisted dreams. Poor
grandfather has little to dream of as he slowly reaches the end
of his journey. His dreams are of the past-of battles fought and
won, of daring adventures of which he laments and wonders that
none cares to hear of them-little realizing that their dreams are
not his. .
Dreams are the most important things in, Qne's life, the
young fearlessly facing the future because of themg the old
spending their last days joyously and happily with them. With-
out dreams We would have no aim in life or no desire to live.
1 I Louise Stuart-'38,
Comforting and soothing as a warm summer? day,
Cheerful and happy as a child at play,
Chilling and hurting as a cZog's quick bite,
Dark and gloomy as a cold wintry night-
All of these make up a face,
Sometime or other, somewhere, someplace.
