NO LONGER OLD AT THIRTY Women Have Proved Conclusively That Age Is Not at All a Matter of Years. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 24 June 1921

NO LONGER OLD AT THIRTY Women Have Proved Conclusively That Age Is Not at All a Matter of Years. Perhaps women who are not at all sensitive about their age are still in a minority. But their number is growing. In almost any gathering where women chatter pleasantly and with some intimacy about things which interest them you find at least one woman who cheerfully admits that she is not thirty-live, but forty-five, or that it is a very long time since she was thirty. One of the tragic conventions which have helped to wreck women’s lives is this stupid tradition that at any given age a woman gets old. Years ago most women celebrated their thirtieth birthdays with a sense of depression. With greater commoa sense, women at least began to see that even after thirty they might enjoy life, and that the games and amusements and joys which are possible at twenty are no less possible at forty. Today there lingers this ancient superstition that if you have reached a certain age you must not admi...

MANY TIMES CLOSE TO DEATH Cowboy Must Have Had Creepy Feeling When He Realized What He Had Escaped. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 24 June 1921

MANY TIMES CLOSE TO DEATH Cowboy Must Have Had Creepy Feeling When He Realized What He Had Escaped. The best story of horses’ jumps which conies to mind is that - of a cowboy. He was taking steers to Leadville and hud camped for the night on Bear river near its junction with the Little Snake. In the middle of the night something occurred to stampede the cattie. The cowboy mounted his broncho and rode hither and thither on the flank of the herd until their fright had died away. Four or five times the rider felt his horse give tremendous leaps and with daybreak discovered the cause. The cattle had climbed to a level plateau which is intersected by a canyon four miles long and from 1,500 to A OOO feet deep. its walls Incline toward each other at the top, where the distance is fifteen to twenty feet. In riding, the man had kept his steers circling about tills plateau. A dozen of them he found had fallen down the canyon and been killed. Iloofmarks showed him that the great jumps made by ...

Night in the Forest. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 24 June 1921

Night in the Forest. Through the forest is a great silence, but no stillness. The whippoorwill swings down -aiul up the short curve of his regular song, over and over the I owl says his wlioo. These, with the ceaseless dash of the rapids, are the web on which the night traces her more delicate embroideries of the unexpected. Distant crashes, stealthy footsteps near at hand; subdued scratching of claws; a faint sniff, the mournful cry of the loon, instinct with the spirit of loneliness; the ethereal call-note of the birds of passage high In the air; a pattern among t?te dead leaves, and at last, from Ihe thicket close at hand, the beautiful silvery purity of the white-throated .sparrow—the nightingale of the North—trembling with the ecstasy of beauty, as though a shimmering moonbeam hail turned to sound ; these things combine subtly, the Great Silence ovenmios the night and draws you forth to contemplation.—Stewart Edward White.

STATE CAPITAL [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 24 June 1921

STATE CAPITAL State Prison Report. Richmond.— That intemperance, while it may be a contributory, is by no means the chief cause of crime and that illiteracy has little or nothing to do with the development of criminal tendencies, are among the outstanding features of a report on Virginia penal institutions submitted to Governor Westmoreland Davis by the board of directors of the State penitentiary. The figures show that of the 681 prisoners received during the past year, 552, or over 80 per cent, were total abstainers, while only 122 used intoxicating liquors. There were 221 illiterates and 463 who could read and write. The report also showed that married men are, for the most part, better behaved than single men, the institution having received only 247 of the former, while 414 single men entered Its portals. At the end of the fiscal year, September 30, 1920, there were 101 life prisoners at the institution, twenty-eight white men, sixtynine colored men and four colored women. Plea...

Elsewhere in to-days issue we pub lisa another statement from Geo. P. Coleman, State Highway Comm., relativ to the proposed bond issue for road cnstruction, and giving the stat us of road financs as they now are and will bo without the issue. We are at loss to know just why these statements and contentions of the State Highway men should be dis credited or disbelieved when the opponents of the Coleman plan are dial lenged to disprove them. The men composing this commission are assuredly in a position to know better than any one else, and just why they should be discredited and their sincerity scouted at this time is hard to explain. They claim that the scheme can be carried through without an in crease of taxation, and that the work of nearly two decades, under the pres ent system, can be more than cut in half. Is any one in a better position to know? Can they be trusted? Why should they want to mislead and deceive? True, there is formible and “brainy opposition, some of it sincere ...

THE END OP A FOOLISH THEORY [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 24 June 1921

THE END OP A FOOLISH THEORY Those credulous and unintelligent citizens of America who have been shrieking the praise of Sovietism in Russia and even calling for Sovietism in the United States are certainly up against it now that events have plainly proved that communism is a total failure. For years, the advocates of an im possible, foolish theory have insisted that the success of communism in Rus sia was held back by the blockade Now publication of customs office figures in Great Britain show that in 1920, British exports to Russia, direct or through the Scandinavian neighbors of Russia, were alone upwards of five hundred millions of dol lars and almost as much in 1919. Great blockade wasn’t it? Then they said that but for the insurrections fathred by the western countries, communism would have gone ahead successfully; There has been no civil war for nearly a year and no blockades, yet the state of affairs in Russia today are far worse than under those conditions. So bad indeed, th...

Mr. Ming Takes Us Down a Peg One of the big men of China today is Mr. Ki Hung Ming, who graduated from the University of Chicago a quarter of a centuary ago. Mr. Ming has written a piece in English for the “North China Standard” about America in which he says: “If the United States were destroy ed tomarrow, I want to ask what great spiritual thing have the Amer icans as a nation done which they can leave behind them to show to men of generations that they were once a nation with civilization. In my opinion, the only spiritual asset of the American nation as a nation have done that, if they, as anation were destroyed tomorrow, will be remembered by men of after generations—is the work of Poe’s ‘ANNA BEL LEE’ and the music of the plan tation songs.” Mr. Wing qualifies this with the "(mark that we are really young yet :is a nation—less than 150 years, which is no time at all compared witn (he of China.

As to Hoad Funds [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 24 June 1921

As to Hoad Funds Richmond June 23 —With the con tracts which will be awarded during the remainder of June and during the month of July for the construction of State highways, all the available funds of the State Highway Department for new construction will have been exhausted, and no further funds will be available for this purpose until 1922, according to a statement by Geo. P. Coleman, State Highway Comm. The only funds which are now certain for 1922 are the proceeds of the mill tax collection in 1922 which it is estimated, will amount to $l, 600,00.00, one third of the auto-tax estimated to produce $700,000.00 and the value of convict labor estim ated at $300,000.00, making a total of $2,600,000.00 of State funds for new construction. Whatever addition al funds are provided will depend on the action of the Federal Government If the same sources of revenue are continued this would add $2,000,000 of Fed. aid and $700,000.00 approp riation from the Gen.
