RICE CONVERTS ONLY
A wire from Mexico states that the
Women's American Baptist Home
Mission Society has decided to buy an
old palace in the city of Puebla at a
cost of $75,000 and convert it into a
kindergarten and graded school. A
gentleman who has lecently returned
from Puebla told THE APPEAL that
the Baptists had sustained a mission
in Puebla for twenty years and had
spent thousands of dollars, without
making a single real convei't. As in
China there are a number of "rice
converts," that is people who pretend
that they have been converted for a
consideration. The people of Mexico
are Catholics. Why should Baptists
spend money trying to induce them
to give up the religion of their
A BLACK YEAR FOR COLORED
The first year of the Harding ad
ministration has been a distinct dis
appointment to right-minded, clear
thinging, far-sighted Christian Amer
icans, especially the colored people
who have been placed by fate under
the rule of the U. S. A.
The Filipinos, a colored race, have
been denied the freedom which was
solemnly promised them more than
twenty years ago. In 1921 there was
a farcical "investigation" of condi
tions, by the man who had been picked
to rule the islands and whose policy
had evidently been decided upon be
fore the results of the "investigation"
had been received in the U. S. A.
A man with bitter racial prejudices
has been sent to govern the Porto
Ricans, the majority of whom are
colored people, who are anxious to
get from under the American yoke.
Santo Domingo wishes to be free
from jimcrow mle but the present
American regime hangs on without
rhyme or reason.
The man sent to "investigate" and
rule Haiti, is the very man who was
the ruler when the alleged outrages
took place. The Haitians are nearly
ligion. Not satisfied with the "pa
oil kioi, i r% i*. i- house that injustice will be a great
all black people and Catholics in re-
cification" outrages, the oppressors
have added insult to injury, by forc
ing jimcrowism into the Catholic
churches where separate masses are
now celebrated for colored and white
people. That is one of the sacrileges
of the rule in Haiti of the U. S. A.
The Harding administration has
failed to recognize Mexico, although
the conditions are now stable and
there is not as much lawlessness in
the whole republic as there is in the
city of Chicago in the U. S. A. The
population of Mexico is approxi

cent mixed white Indian and Negro
and not more than 5 per cent pure
When the President was a candi
date he addressed a large delegation
of colored people and said, "Fellow
Americans, fear not, America will not
fail you." Coolidge, the candidate,
handed out seme very touching
phrases couchel in the purest Bos
tonese, in which he made a plea for
more rights for the colored people.
Elder Will H. Hays and his assist
ants, including the "jimcrow" cam
paign bureau under Lincoln Johnson
and Perry Howard assured the peo
ple that the election of the Republi
can ticket would make this country
practically a territonal paradise.
It was not long after Mareh 4.,
1921, that it became evident that a
policy of segregation was being form
ulated for Americans of darker hue.
Practically all of the jimcrowism of
the Wilson regime have been con
tinued and many new wrinkles have

effect endeavored to relegate them

der were a veritable curse upon a
group of loyal citizens.
The administration has invaded the
states in which the colored had an
actual part in the party organizations
and has piactically decreed that they
must "fall in behind the white man,"
or get out.
The administiation started a K. K.
K. investigation which was suddenly
called off without any leason for the
action being given.
A few jimcrow offices have been
thrown out like bones to a horde of

Mates, it has been a dark year for
the dark peoples.
The writer has been an active Re
publican for more than fifty years
and still belie\es in the principles
laid down by Lincoln, Grant, McKin
ley and Roosevelt, and iff is with re
gret that we are compelled to note
that the present national administra
tion has strayed from the G. O. P.
The U. S. Senate is being told of
the horrible atrocities committed by
Gen. Gregorio Semenoff, ataman of
the Russian Cossack. It is a terrible
recital and the grave and reverend
senators are horrified, as the fearful
things were done 6,000 miles away by
people who are considered not more
than half civilized. Worse atrocities
were committed (according to the
testimony before the Senate investi-1
gating committee), by U. S. marines
in Haiti, and the details scarcely
caused a ripple of excitement. Haiti
is so much nearer, it has been gob
bled by the U. S. A. and the marines
are "our boys." It makes a big dif
ference whose ox is gored.
We are glad to learn that the cele
bration of the fiftieth anniversary of
the birth of William Monroe Trotter
was a great success and that a large
purse was collected. Among the con
tributors were: Moorfield Storey,
president of the N. A. A. C. Sen
ator Lodge and other prominent citi
zents. Trotter is a great man be
cause he has not compromised on the
vital and fundamental questions of
American citizenship and that's what
nine-tenths of the lickspittle leaders
have done. Long live Trotter.
The papers tell us that the Presi
dent is very much interested in and is
working hard for the passage of the
ship subsidy-bill which will cost the
American people many millions of
dollars and if beneficial will only pro
duce $$$$$$. The same President
seems to be very indifferent to the
passage of the Dyed anti-lynching bill
which is necessary to safeguard civil
ization in the U. S.
Judge Andrew J. Cobb in address
ing the Northeast Georgia Conference
on Welfare made the following state
"The government of the state of
Georgia is in the hands of the white
man. It is a shame whenever an in
justice is done Negroes in or out of
the courts. If you have power and
do not administer justice, you prove
that you are unworthy of power.
The best people of Georgia, if they
will assert themselves, can govern in
"I see no constitutional justification
in federal interference. I would say
to the people of Georgia, however,
that unless the state demonstrates it
self efficient in the protection of life,
there is going to be interference by
somebody. We want a government
that governs. If states do not use the
powers they have and govern people,
then the people will yield to a usurper
rather than be slain by a government.
"I want to see a sentiment so
strong that no band of ruffians, black
guards, or brigands shall enter a jail
and take human life like brutes. This
is the sentiment of the thoughtful
people of this state. I want to see a
sentiment of justice so strong in the
court house and out of the court
to everybody." Southern
DISTRICT NO. 10
Transfer from Washington to the
District Office of the Veterans' Bureau
in Minneapolis of control over nine
thousand cases of service men re
ceiving or seeking training or com
pensation, was announced by C. D.
4libbard, District Manager.
Completion of the case transfer
from Washington is characterized as
the biggest single step yet taken
toward carrying out the provisions of
the Sweet bill, which declared that
the functions centered in Washing
ton should be decentralized to the
District Offices with full power to act
on them. The nine thousand cases
over which complete control was
transferred to Minneapolis were re

work of consolidating and putting the

DR.VALDO TURNER PRESIDES
By Chas. M. Tucker.
If the esprit de corps manifested
at the dinner conference of April 10th,
at the Masonic Hall, is an augury of'
success for the inauguration of the
membership drive which begins April
17th by the Local Branch of the N. A.
A. C. P., the Executive Board of that
organization may well feel encour
aged over the prospects of results.
Never before has so much attention
been directed, not only to the neces
sity and success of the drive and
civic welfare., but to the fundamental
principles, unity and co-operation of
Dr. Turner Welcomes Guests and
Seated around tables in the beau
tiful rooms of the Masonic Hall were
representatives of all organizations,
churches, Sunday schools, members
and friends of the Association. Din
ner, which consisted of some well pre
pared and thoroughly enjoyed pro
ducts of the cuisine, was ^erved at
six o'clock. Dr. Valdo Turner, Chair
man of the Executive Board, wel
comed the representatives of the var
ious organizations on behalf of the
Asociation Board. In his talk atten
tion was invited to some questions
that were not civic in their scope,
but of direct consequence for racial
pride racial loyalty racial business
and professional application. The
Chairman of the Executive Board
then submitted a plan to the repre
sentatives whereby, if adopted, would
not only obviate the duplication ,pf
efforts, but would become the first
step in unifying and co-ordinating
Dr. Rypins Urges Solidarity of Race
Characteristically, naively, cogent
ly and sincerely, the President of the
local branch began his talk. After
having been introduced by the chair
man of the Executive Board, Dr. Ry
pins, the President, expressed his de
light at the" large gathering for the
occasion. The speaker also expressed
his deep regret over the non-represen
tation of the ministry at such a sig
nal occasion. The President was high
in his admiration for the Executive
Chairman wbom he felt was "second
to none in power of leadership."
"The Race question is a question
which will be one or generations to
come, until you shall have conquored
it, through your ambition, aspiration
and ideals, and made of yourselves an
absolutely free people before the eyes
of the world." The speaker stated
that one of the first requisites toward
that end was racial solidarity and
strongly urged for that, taking his
cue from the small attendance to
meeting held to foster civic and nat
ional advancement. It was through
that the geographical situation here
made or an opportunity of service
for those who are the victims of daily
austral insults. "The only way you
can express your inclination to "be of
material service to your brothers is
through concerted and unified effort
here in St. Paul and through the
N. A A. C. P." The speaker also
pointed out that our municipal, state
and national welfare must be started
by the colored people themselves for
who shall solve your problems, my
dear people, but yourselves?" In
closing, Dr. Rypins expressed the de
sire that the ministry would more at
tract the young men, and, in doing
so, would bridge the chasm of emena
bleness which now exists between the
religious teachers and the young
