A Religious Service with Negro
Conducted by Elder
Lightfoot Solomon Michaux
Two years ago a broadcast from the Church of God, headquarters of the Negro ' Happy Am I' movement, was relayed to British listeners from near the banks of the Potomac River in Washington, D.C.
This is a repetition of that harmonious event, and once again Felix Greene , the BBC's representative, will set the stage for Elder Lightfoot Solomon Michaux and his fervent flock.
Services such as this, in which the Negro congregation respond to their pastor with shouts and entreaties, are common in the Southern States of America, and, if they appear tumultuous to English ears, are none the less expressions of the deep devotion of this dusky people.

An appeal on behalf of THE HAIG HOMES by The Rt. Hon. Viscount LEE OF Fareham, G.C.B., G.C.S.I., G.B.E., Chairman of the Council of Trustees
Few will dispute the right of the ex-Service man to a decent home for himself and his family in the land for which he fought, or would not be shocked to see the terrible housing conditions to which many of them, impoverished by the disablement or death of the breadwinner, are condemned.
A National trust, known as the Haig Homes , was launched in 1928 to deal with this urgent problem by providing houses or flats, designed where necessary to meet the special needs of disabled men, in pleasant surroundings, and at rents which even the poorest can afford, or alternatively by making grants in aid of rent to those who cannot be accommodated in the Trust's own properties.
Some 650 families, representing over 3,000 persons, are already being helped, but further funds are urgently needed.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
