The Advocate appreciates ever so
much copies of the Hotel Tattler sent
us by R. H Newby, one of The Ad
vocate readers who is now residing
in Redmond. Oregon One of the cop-
les contained a cut and write-up of
a former Portlander. George P. Moore,
manager, and Danny Edwards, cham
pion bantamweight. While The Tat
tier comes to our desk each week,
we must be frank to confess that
this particular issue escaped our no
trees with the ripest fruit. We are
tilted with pride when we hear what
some "knockers" have to say.
Next Saturday, The Advocate will
be 20 years old.
WHAT CAN BE DONE WHEN
We are told that recently colored
people In an eastern city succeeded
In crippling a large ice cream manu

lic meeting of some kind the ern
ployee of the ice cream manufactar
Ing company, served the colored peo
ple after all whites had been served.
The news was flashed about the city
among the colored people through
their paper and from their pulpits.
In a very short time, all the colored
drug stores, colored entertainers, con-
fectionery stores and Ice cream par
lors which had been using his Ice
cream, stopped using IL This was
keenly felt by the manufacturer, for
there were some thirty colored drug
stores alone which sold his cream
And while the manufacturer made a
feeble effort to deny his Implication
in the insulting episode, the colored
people stuck together and steadfast
ly refused to patronise him.
Portland colored people would do
well to learn from these eastern
brothers and learn to trust their own
and the wont ot their own. equally.
If not more than others and their
words See how effective our pat-
ronage can be when we pool it?
Think on this.
The Advocate is glad to welcome
again Miss Emogene Clarkston of

we also appreciate the fact that one

The Covered Wagon is showing for

deservedly so. v-cause this film pre

the early settlers of Oregon, who
planted the western civilization. The

TO THE PEOPLE OF PORTLAND

Agali. we ball the a.tention to those
who wish free space in The Advocate
to the fact that it requires money
to publish a paper. Our policy is to

porters. charging them only for those
Items we cannot class as news, and
tor which we are compelled to make
« charge. But those people who
steadfastly refuse to turn loose a
puny 83.56 a year for a subscription
to The Advocate, would do well to
enclose a m ney erd'-r or check when
sending in their doings and activi
ties which are of no special news
value. An individual who spends his
money with any flrm certainly gets
mor- consideration from that flrm
than one who does not. The same is
true with The Advocate.

two different materials enter into the

sleeves are provided for the blouse—
