WHAT DOES GOD REQUIRE?
And now, Israel, what does the Lord
thy God require of thee, but to fear
the Lord thy God, to walk in all His
ways, and to love Him, and to serve
the Lord thy God with all thy heart
and with all thy soul.Deuteronomy
10:12. GET BUSY WITH THE U. S. SENA-
The Dyer anti-lynching bill has
been passed by the house of repre
sentatives and is now in the senate
in the hands of the judiciary commit
If the judiciary committee reports
the Dyer bill, its enactment by the
senate is almost certain. The sena
tors on that committee are:
Knute Nelson, Minnesota William
P. Dillingham, Vermont Frank B.
Brandegee, Connecticut William E.
Borah, Idaho Albert B. Cummins,
Iowa LeBaron B. Colt, Rhode Island
Thomas Sterling, South Dakota Geo.

son, Texas Lee S. Overman, North
Carolina James A. Reed, Missouri
Henry Ashurst, Arizona John K.
Shields, Tennessee Thomas J. Walsh,
Now is the time to write or tele
graph the members of the judiciary
committee and ask them to support
the bill. It is especially important
that the people of Minnesota flood
Senator Nelson with letters and tel
egrams asking him to vote for a fav
orable report on the bill. The out
look is favorable but work must be
done to make assurance doubly sure.
IT MUST NOT BE
The proposition to establish a play
ground for COLORED children in St.
Paul is un-American and THE AP
PEAL is opposed to it.
One of the strange phases of jim
crowism in these days in the fact that
nine-tenths of the plans to degrade
the colored people into a pariah class
are conceived in the brains of people
who call themselves Christians. In
the majority of cases when the col
ored man is kicked down it is done
"for his benefit" and "in the name of

believe that they are doing a great
thing for the colored people of Saint
Paul but they are mistaken.
Paul, to the white people as well as
the colored people, than the attempt
to segregate one group of' citizens.
It is a thing which will serve to in
flame the fires of race prejudice.
It is inconceivable that any col
ored people could so belittle them
selves as to be parties to so infam
ous a scheme and it is infamous
whether it is so intended or not. We
are glad to know that the superin
tendent of playgrounds opposes the
The decent self-respecting people
of Saint Paul must fight the nefari
ous scheme to a finish. If you are a
good American you should oppose it.
IT MUST NOT BE!
Having been convicted by a Dublin
court of taking part in the Irish Re
bellion of 1798, Robert Emmet, the
greatest Irish patriot, was duly exe
cuted by the British authorities.
He closed his last speech with these
words: "I have but one request to
make on my departure from this
world. Let no man write my epitaph
for, as no man who knows my motives,
dare now vindicate them, let not pre
judice ^asperse them. Let my tomb
remain unscribed, until other times
and other men can do justice to my
character. When my country shall
take her place among the nations of
the earth, then, and not until then, let
my epitaph bs written."
More than one hundred years have
passed, during which time thousands
of brave Irishmen have laid down
their liveB* to rfiee their beloved coun
try from the horrors of British op
pression. The lush have fought Brit
ain to the death, Britain was whip
ped, and just the other day the birth
of the new Irish Free State was cele
No doubt Emmett's martyrdom did
much to keep burning the fires of na
tionalism which have at last made
Ireland a nation. To Robert Emmett
more than to any other one man may
the successful ending of the fight for
freedom "be credited. Now let his epi
taph be written.
EGYPT IS FREE.
There is great rejoicing in Egypt.
Sultan Ahmed Fuad Pasha has an
nounced with due pomp and ceremony
that Egypt has become an indepen
dent and sovereign state and that he,
the Sultan, has assumed the title of
the King of Egypt. The British High
Commissioner, Field Marshal Lord
Allenby, called at the Royal palace
after the ceremonies at Cairo and con
gratulated King Fuad, whom he ad
dressed as "Your Majesty." How has
this been ^accomplished By cringing
and saying "We don't want this and
we don't want that and we don't want
the other"? No. The Egyptians de
fied Great Britain and refused to ac
cept anything except absolute free
dom. They fought for it, they died
for it and they got it!
The U. S. Senate is being told of
the horrible atrocities committed by
Gen. Gregono 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
gating committee), by U. S. marines
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.
Protest always pays. For some
time the people of India have been
making "silent protest" against the
many injustices from which they suf
fer and now it seems that results are
about to be achieved. The govern
ment has introduced several bills for
the repeal of nearly all of the repres
sive and restrictive laws now on the
And because they have protested,
England will give independence to
the Egyptians. Down South, Moton
et al are lauding the brutal people
who have stolen the rights of the col
ored people and restricted them to a
jimcrow place in the social scheme.
Representative Fordney of Michi
gan has introduced a bill in the house
proposing a loan of $5,000,000 to Li
beria. The Liberians seem to want
the money and the president was in
the U. S. last year making an appeal
for it but THE APPEAL believes it
to be a dangerous matter. If
money is loaned and not promptly
paid it will be an excuse for the
United States to go in and take pos
session, and thus get a foothold in
Africa, and then Uncle Sam will pro
ceed to mistreat and murder the Li
berians just as he did in Haiti. The
Liberians would do well to sidestep
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 niany millions of
dollars and if beneficial will only pro

seems to be very indifferent to the

MASS, CITIZENS TO
PETITION LODGE FOR
ACTION ON DYER RILL
ON GRAND CENTENNA RY NIGHT
.ASK REPUBLICAN LEADER
O SENA TE TO MAKE A PAR-
TY MEASURE O BILL PRO M-
ISED I N REPUBLICAN PLAT
Boston, Mass., April 28, 1922.
From the rostrum of historic Charles
Street A. M. E. church on the cen
tennary night of the birth of Ulysses
S. Grant, Union commander and
president, friend of the colored race
and executor of the constitution,
April 27, 1922, the Greater Boston
Branch of the National Equal Rights
League launched a movement to pro
mote a signed petition to U. S. Sen
ator H. C. Lodge of Massachusetts,
in his capacity as Republican leader
of the Senate to have the Republican
party espouse the Dyer anti-lynching
bill, and thus secure action and get
the bill out of committee.
Congressman Dyer in a recent
speech to the Boston N. A. A. C. P.,
had declared the colored people could
do more for passage of the bill than
those of any other state, because the
Senate leader is from Massachusetts
and comes up for re-election this
year. He repeated this to the na
tional secretary of the league and
Trotter framed the petition
which is being circulated for signa
tures all over the state.
The league's resolve for the Dyer
bill in the Massachusetts legislature
brought a strong editorial for the bill
in the Boston American and all the
Hearst newspapers. This resolve is
up for final action on Wednesday and
will also spur Lodge to action.
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

from Washington is characterized as

over which complete control was

Your help is vital. Address your let

Give street address. Spell oui name
of State, don't abbreviate. Put your
return address in the upper left hand
corner of envelope (not on the back)
and always look at your letter before
dropping in the mail to see if it is
properly addressed. This care in the
use of the mails is for your benefit and
speeds up the dispatch and delivery
