THE JIMCROW ARMY.
Even under present conditions, the
United States Army, so far as it re
lates to the colored people,-is a jim
crow affair. Colored men are com
peted to enlist in the four "colored"
regiments two infantry and two
ca\alryin the regular army.
What this segregation meant was
shown during the world war when
colored men were rushed through the
country in jimcrow cars, trained in
jimci-ow camps, all the while being
subjected to indignities and insults.
This treatment reached its acme when
they were in France, even on
firing line. Their treatment forms
one of the blackest pages in the his
tory of that famous conflict to "make
the world safe for democracy."
It is now said that the War DeSan
partment intends to further jimcrow
170 its valiant colored soldiers and
humiliate and degrade its citizenry
by taking the colored regiments of
New York, Illinois, Massachusetts and
pui them into a separate division of
the Federalized National Guard.
If this is true, it will be the worst
blow ever aimed at the rights of col
oied citizens, because it takes colored
men out of their proper places as
citizens of their respective states and
fences them into an inferior status
which does not apply to other groups
of Americans, such as Germans, Irish,
Russians, Poles, Greeks, Lithuanians,
Serbians, Scotch, Italians, Austrians,
French, Spanish, etc. and not even to
Chinese, Japanese, Koreans, Indians,
Filipinos, South Sea Islanders and
other colored races. It would be an
insult to the loyalty and patriotism
of the colored people.
The colored people of the United
States ought to protest through the
N. A. A. C. P., the National Equal
Rights League, the National Race
Congress and every other organiza
tion which stands for justice, and
every individual ought to make a pro
test to the President, the Secretary
of War and to his Senator and Con
gressman, to prevent, if possible, the
consummation of this wrong.
CARRAWAYS LITTLE JOKE.
THE SIN OF SILENCE
"RACE PURKTY." I
The iLouisiana constitutional con-'
vention now in session at Baton Rouge
had a little tussle over a "race puri-'
ty" ordinance a few days ago.
It read: "The legislature shall en-J
act necessary legislation to guard and
preserve race purity."
The women defeated the proposi-1
tion by a large vote. The principal
reason given by the female opposi-j
tion was that it would be a bad adMr.
vertisement for the state and make
it appear to non-residents that it
as a troublesome question and that
it was difficult to prevent white
women from marrying black men.
There may have been other reasons
which the ladies did not care to
divulgeperhaps some of them were
colored and knew it.
Louisiana is a state in which there
"aint no sich animal" as race purity.
Those who are familiar with the
facts says that probably three-fourths
of the native born so-called white
people have more or less Negro blood
in their veins. The mixing has been
going on for more than 300 years,
and it still continues in spite of laws
to prevent it.
On the day that the ordinance was
considered by the constitutional con
vention a blood controversy case was
being tried in one of the courts in
New Orleans, and when the plaintiff,
demanded a "blood test" the sage,
judge suggested that it would "be
better to submit the matter to thecourse
One Carraway, a Democratic Unit
ed States Senator from Arkansas, one
of the states in the Southern murder
tier, unconsciously perpetrated a lit
tle joke when he introduced a bill to
prohibit enlistment of colored men
in the army or navy.
Of course Carraway did not mean
to be funny he put the bill in to
please the red necks of "Rackensack."
He knows it can not pass. But the
joke is there just the same, because
colored Americans are already barred
from both army nad navy except on
a jimcrow basis.
Although a resident 'of one of the
states, a colored man can not enter
the militia of that state on the same
basis as other citizens. He must get
into a segregated unit and then into
the U. S. army through the jimcrow
division of the Federalized National
Guard. If he wishes to enter the
regular army he must go into a seg
If a young colored man happens to
read one of the lying advertisements
published by the navy, calling atten
tion to the enlistment "to travel and
see the world," or "honorable ad
vancement," or "chance for a great
career," and with loyalty and pa
triotism in his breast he endeavors
to enlist, he is informed by the
invariably polite enlistment officer
that his only chanec is as a mess at
tendant, which translated means a
This is the way loyal colored citi
zens are treated by a lying -nation
which boasts of its democracy, hu
"TEACH 'EM! THOSE GIRLS
TAUGHT ME." 'J
Mr. Stanley E. Bailey .formerly of
Francisco, whose present address
is the Cook county jail, Illinois, is
charged with conducting a class in
crap-shooting at the exclusive Hotel
del Monte, where many of the prom
inent society leaders spent thousands

protest makes cowards out of men.
The human race has climbed on pro
test. Had no voice been raised against
injustice, ignorance and lust, the in-
quisition yet would serve the law, and
guillotines decide our least disputes.
The few who dare must speak and
speak again to right the wrongs of
many.Ella Wheeler Wilcox.
THE MAN WHO DARES
I honor the man who in the consci
entious discharge of his duty dares to
stand alone the world, with ignorant,
intolerant judgment, may condemn,
the countenances of relatives may be
averted, and the hearts of friends grow
cold, but the sense of duty done shall
be sweeter than the applause of the
world, the countenances of relatives or
the hearts of friends.Charles Sumner.
of dollars in a scientific investigation
oi the law of averages. It seems
that Mr. Bailey, who by the way is
a white man taught the women how
to shoot craps but not how to shoot
them as well as he did. Since Bail
ey's departure they have attempted
in vain to master the wrist tech
nique so essential to medal play with
the rolling bones.
San Francisco officers will escort
Bailey back to the Golden Gate,
where he may be required to explain
his tricks of penmanship. Mr. Bailey
will be asked also about the disap
pearance of an $8,000 automobile,
property of one of the fashionable
and enthusiastic crap-shooters and
concerning the failure of certain San
Francisco banks to honor sundry
checks left to meet hotel bills.
Mr. Baileyc in his cell scoffed at the
suggestion that he had acted as
mentor of the society women of Cali
fornia in matters of seven and eleven
and such like. "They didn't need any
teaching," he declared. The society
women there carry dice in their hand
bags all the time and spend their
spare moments shooting craps. "Teach
'em! Those girls taught me."
HATE BREEDING HEADLINES.
The first edition of the Chicago
Sunday Tribune, dated May 15, 1921,
which was sold on the streets of that
city Saturday night, May 14, and of
had a comparatively limited
circulation, contained on its first page
an article describing a murder, bear
ing the headlines:
BOY OF 6 ALIVE
IN A SAND PIT
Evidently the alert city editor did
not wish to overlook a chance to fol
low the fixed policy of the Tribune
of making colored people odious in
the eyes of their felow citizens, for
when the final edition, which- is
livered Sunday morning at the homes
of the majority of the inhabitants of
the city, appeared, the first line had
been changed to read:
If the alleged murders had been
committed by Jews, Germans or Irish
they would not have stressed the
fact or race, nationality or religion
in the headlines thus arousing race
A religious paper published in
London "deplores the visit of Crown
Prince Hirohito of Japan, because of
its harmful effects on U. S. opinion
and because of the Japanese hatred
of our religion." Can you beat that?
eCrtainly there is no reason why the
Japanese should love Christianity.
The colored people of the U. S. have
accepted Christianity, but Caucasian
Christianity has done far more to de
grade them than to uplift the race.
Christians in the U. S. enchasers
acted the exclusion and land laws.
The Japs are no fools.
The dispatches say the Igorrotes
told the Wood-Forbes mission, now
in the Philippines, that they did not
care for freedom, but preferred U.
S. rule. The Igorrotes are dog-eaters
and a doggone dirty ignorant lot.
The intelligent Filipinos desire the
freedom and independence which the
United States promised them. Here
in the U. S. there is a class of color
ed men who eat chicken instead of
dog, but are lower than the dog
eaters because they cringe and fawn
and say they do not wish their rights.
Mr. Charles F. Douglass of New
Orleans, La., is in the city the guest
of his brother, Mr. J. P. Douglass,
Dunlap and Larpenteur Aves., Mer
riam Park. They wili be joined by
their brothers, Joseph and W. R., also
of New Orleans, and the quartette
will go into business under the firm
name of Douglass Brothers, Contract
ors, Builders and General Repairers.
They are expert workmen as cabinet
makers, carpenters and joiners and
are well, qualified to give full satis
faction to those who favor them with
orders. Anyone desiring anything in
their line will do well to see them
before closing contracts elsewhere.

editions of THE APPEAL, issued in
the years 1910, 1911, 1913, containing
scores of cuts of the homes of theday
people of St. Paul and Minneapolis.
Those papers were revelations to
everyone that saw them and, they
doubtless planted the ideas into the
heads of many whose homes were not
shown in them to get homes who are
the happy possessors of them.
THE APPEAL is planning to issue
a special "Own Your Home" edition
in the month of May, and if pur
of homes since those dates
desire to publish cuts of their homes
in the forthcoming edition, they will
please get into communication with
THE APPEAL by calling at the of

accepted, and those who come first
will be considered first.
The "Own Your Home" Edition will
also contain the advertisements of
real estate dealers, builders, building
materials, money loaners and others
who are absolutely essential if you
desire to own your home.

oyu really desire Own Your Home,

"I plan to build a nifty shack," the
thoughtful voter sighs, "when normal
times again come back, and costs
don't hit the skies. I'll go about the
business sharp, nor waste a golden
day, when carpenters consent to carp
for wages I can pay. When lumber,
plaster, nails and lime are sold for
what they're worth I shall not lose a
moment's time I'll build with pep STATE
and mirth. The house I've dreamed
of in the past will go up, board by
board, when plasterers consent to
plast for what I can afford." A mil
lion men are talking thus, and ifthis
they'd go and build and cease to
brood and fret and cuss, with dire
misgivings filled, we'd soon get back
to normalcy you've heard of that,
mayhap the normalcy that Warren
G. has placed upon the map. Alas,
poor dreaming, hopeful men, What
are you 'waiting for? You'll never
see the price again you saw before
the war. Far better that your coin
were spent for lumber, lath and lime
than keep on digging up the rent un
til the- end of time. So rock your
doubts and fears to sleep and buy
some brick or stone and build your
self a donjon keep that you can call
your own. WALT MASON.
