SEGREGATE COLORED AMERI
CANS A LINCOLN MEMO-
Colored Americans were segrega
ted in the seating of the audience
during the dedication of the Lincoln
Memorial in Washington, at which
President spoke, it was learned today.
This information was contained in a
letter sent to the National Associa
tion for the. Advancement of Colored
People, 70 Fifth Avenue, New York,
by Shelby J. Davidson, executive sec
retary of the Washington branch N.
A. A. C. P. Mr. Davidson's letter
says in part
"I am herewith calling attention to
the dedication of the Lincoln Memor
ian here. The conditions which con
fronted us as a race were the most
shameful and disgraceful in the annals
of history. Platform tickets were dis
tributed to the most representative
of our colored citizens, and when they
appeared, they'found segregation run
ning riot. Platform seats reserved
for white were in chairs and within
hearing distance of the speakers, that
might be called reasonable, while
back of those seats were those re
served for colored people, roped off
from those occupied by the whites
and placed about a block from the
Memorial in the grass and weeds,
with rough hewn benches without
backs or supports.
"Placed at the entrance to these
seats were marines who were dis
tasteful, discourteous and abusive
even to swearing in the presence of
our women who accompanied their
husbands to the celebration. Some of
our people, be it said to their credit,
as soon as they saw the situation,
turned and left the dedication rather
than submit to the abuses offered
It is a wonder that Lincoln did not
turn over in his grave.
IT PAYS TO KICK
The American Legion city commit
tee of Wilmington, Del., objected se
riously to the plan of the general
committee to having the Norman D.
Scott Post to, march in a separate
division of colored people instead of
with the regular division assigned to
the American Legion on Memorial
Day." The Legionaires insisted that
the Scott Post be in' line with the
other three posts, and intimated that
it would withdraw from the parade
unless the discriminatory ban would
The manly stand of the American
Legion bore good fruit. Col, Do
herty hastened to explain that at no
time had the committee planned to
separate the posts of the American
It always pays to kick.
IT MUST NOT BE
The proposition to establish a play
ground for COLORED children in
Paul is un-American and THE APbeautiful
PEAL is opposed to it.
One of the strange phases of jim-decoration,
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
No doubt some of the promoters
believe that they are doing a great
thing for the colored people of Saint
Paul but they are mistaken.
No greater evil could come to Saint
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

Work In Corn Production
More than 14,000 colored farmers
in North Carolina, Texas, and Vir
ginia who raised 90,000 acres of corn
last year under the advise of county
agents, employed cooperatively by
the United States Department of Ag
riculture and the State agricultural
colleges, obtained average yields of
35 bushels an acre. The average for
all farms in these states ranged from
17 to 25 bushels an acre.
In Virginia nearly 5,000 of the col
ored demonstrators planted pure seed
and about 3,000 selected seed for their
1922 crop. All these demonstration
plats of corn were harvested except
87 acres, which were "hogged down".
It is estimated that 70 per cent of the
colored farmers there are following

Race rioting in Texas, battling in
Ireland, insurrection in Silesia and
lawlessness between the fascisti and
socialists in Italyall in one day's
newsare enough to discourage pro
foundly all believers in democracy.
Attempts to apply self-determination
of peoples and self-government in
place of autocracy in Europe seeras to
have resulted principally in bloodshed
and more tyranny than ever.
It is a strange example of our de
gree of progress in civilization that
a criminal attack on a white woman
by a Negro in Texas should not be a
matter for punishment according to
law but a signal for a battle between
the two races in the immediate local
Such divisions of the people into
groups on the basis of race is only
one of many. We have a situation sim
ilar to that in Europe, of the division
of the people into many classes, ex
cept that it is not geographical. The
general welfare is despised in the
struggle for occupation, previous na
tionality or religion. I is a disin
tegration of democracy.
The experience of the world is that
democracies have failed, because of
civil war among classes. If the twen
tieth century democracies are to be
preserved, it cart be done only by Un
ceasing preaching and conviction of
the principle that.no class can prosper
long at the expense of the general
good.St. Paul Pioneer Pjress.
