it may souna strange to talk about buying families ' in
a free country that forbids the sale or barter of human be-
ings, but it can be done within the law and San Diego is
actually doing it on a wholesale scale.
San Diego wanted more families, and instead of merely
wishing for them went out and bought them in the open mar
ket and at a surprisingly small price. It bought those fam
ilies by selling them San Diego.
A business transaction, it was undertaken in a business
like way. The city, or rather the San Diego-California Club
In co-operation with the local Chamber of Commerce, went
to the H. K. McCann Company, an advertising concern, and
asked it to prepare advertisements that would bring families.
' It was estimated that if San Diego could secure new res-
- iden ts at a cost of $1000 a family it would be a good in
vestment, but when the advertising company got on the job
it delivered them, duly registered at San Diego, at an average
cost of $59.55. i
Two thousand and seven new families were delivered.
Eight Jiundred of the families are now permanent residents
of San Diego. Twelve thousand five hundred families over
the United States have become members of the San Diego
Calif ornla Club, and 4,000 requests for information have been
If families can be bought at that price by San Diego, San

THE II LA CK t'KUSADEK
The career of Marcus Gravey,

ed himself provisional president
of Africa and enlisted many thou
sands of American negroes in his
crusade for the liberation of the
black continent from ths white
yoke, rivals, that of Toussalnt
Garvey's crusade collapsed the
other day whti hi was assested
by postal Inspectors for selling
passage to Africa on mythical
ocean-going liners. He neglested
to provide the ships before sell
ing tickets to his crusaders. The
only vessel flying the flag of the
Black Star line is a retired Hud
son river boat tied up to one of
the docks in New York.
President Garvey landed In
New York not so very long ago
from Jamaica with nothing but
a creative imaginative and a glib
tongue. He soon demonstrated
his talents as a promoter. Be
sides his position as president of
Africa he promoted himself to the
position of president of the Black
Star line, managing editor of the
Negro World, principal poten
tate, paramount chief and president-general
of the Universal Ne
gro Improvement association. A
fat salary accompanied each title.
The bigger the title the fatter
the salary. The total reached
$27,500 a year. That is in ad
dition to his profits from his
holdings in the Black Star lin.

"Wonder if Estelle will come
to the party?" said Marie.
"Yen." spoke Herb. "1 guess
so. Shs's a good one to have at
a valentine party. The clothes
she werrs make her look like a
comic valentine, anyway."
"Herb!" giggled Marie, and
they passed on down the staps of
the school house.
Estelle crept quietly out into
the hall. She had been coming
up the coridor and had just come
around the corner as Mabel and
Herbert started down the stairs
of the school.
"Anyway," she heard Marie's
final words, "she won't be mak

Although the majority of in'el

a larg3 army of zealous crusaj

He has done more than any o:hy

A recent convention of the or
ganization in Xew York, whil ;t
fell far short of the 30,000 dele
gates claimed by Garvey, was one
of the biggest negro gatherir
ever held in America.
Toward the last, when it was
seen how successful Garvrn- had
been in capturing the imagina

MONEY TO lUTtX
More panic talk in Russia.
There is another issue of paper
money and the puzzle Is to pel
people to accept it. Now it takes
15,000 rubles to buy a loaf of
bread. As it takes 25,000 rubles
to pay for a shave, the Russians
ar ail returning to the old na
t'oiial pastime of letting their
whiiiskers row. The Russians aro

most anything but money. Thty

maneuvers, so important in train

duties that would devolve upon
them in the event of war upon

from th? resultant saving. Th?

Th?re are not so ruany idle
hands in the country as there

since the first of the y?ar. The
railroads and the steed and tex

but in most other lines a distinct
pickup is observed. Tin most
notable return to activity is noted
in the automobile industry in De
