Vr. Editor,
The Civic Preparedness com
nission, colored, working under
mnd in co-operation with the
vhite commission, Col. D. R.
oker of Hartsville, chairman,
vas given instructions by Col.
oker and urged to go im
nediately to work and prevail
ipon our people to plant plenty
f foodstuffs, economize and act
Lt once. A chairman for each
:ounty was appointed and in
tructed to work in co-operation
ith the white people and farm
leonstration agents, white and
olored. Mr. Sparks, secretary
>f the commission with head
luarters in The State Company's
>uilding, Columbia, S. C. is ready
;o give information to colored
ounty chairmen. The time to
lo effective wvork is short.
Jolored poeple should call meet
ngs and organize on or before
:he 28th of April. iHere is a
:hance for every colored leader,
reacher and teacher to show
is interest in his people.) There
s no money for the leaders inf
his movement, as I know of,
md nobody is promised any
noney, but every, negro that
s interested in his race has a1
haice friv-trshow limself loyal
y giving voluntary and grateful
;ervice. The white farmers can
lo a great work by giving mn
;tructions to the colored people:
mnd disseminatingthe information
hey get in the communities
where they live. ( The colored!
reachers would do well irn the
~ew remaining Sundays in this
ronth to preach the "full gos
el" salvation of soul and body./I
The Newberry patriotic meet
ng on the 17th was the best I
sow of and the most effective
rnd far-reaching. The white
farmers came to the court house
~he day of the meeting bringing
with them the colored farmersjto
bear the speaches on prepared
ness. I believe that the negroes
in every county in the State will
see more clearly their duty if the
Newbrry -example is followed.
Every negro preacher, teacher
and pastor should get busy with
pen and tongue. Whatever time
[ have to give to this work I am
giving free of charge and I am
not asking anybody to do what I
am not doing. If any one wishes
to do so, corme to my place in
Kedalltown when I am at home
and you will see that I am
practicing what I am preaching
along this line. I leave on the
8th for Alabama to spend one
week and I am urging our people
between now and that time to
get busy and plant every vacant
lot in something to eat for man'
and beast.
