MOTEN A MENACE
(From the Chicago Whip.)
Robert Russa Moton, President of
Tuskegee Institute, President of the
National Negro Business League and
also holder of many high-sounding
titles, arrogated to himself the right
to speak for the twelve million black
people of, America on Memorial Day
in Washington upon the occasion of
the dedication of the Lincoln Memo
rial. Moton is a man of sparce and
meager training and is very poorly
lettered in comparison' with other
men of his race. He cannot be ac
credited with depth of thought or
oiiginahty: he has merely followed in
the beaten footsteps of his predeces
sor, Booker T. Washington. He has
never raised his voice in a belligerent
note to the many insults and crimes
perpetrated against his race in this
country. He is a man who preaches
submission and docility at any price.
When he had the opportunity on Me
morial Day of expressing himself as
a man he afforded nothing more than
the old stereotyped line of oratorical
effulgence which has made his race
the target of world-wide derision and
disrespect. He failed to mention the
fact that Texas had just burned five
men of his own race at the stake. He
could only say that he pledged the
loyalty of his race to the flag. Major
Moton was given authority to pledge
nothing and he does not represent the
higher tvpe of black people who real
ly feel that they are men and desire
nothing short of absolute and un
qualified liberty. Imagine De Valera,
D'Annuzio, Gandhi or any real men
getting up before the public and pros
tituting the ideals of their down-trod
'den race in such mein. Moton is a
menace to the future of the twelve
million black people of America and
should be decried by all who have ra

tors who show up the hand-picked
_CQwardly "leaders" increase. f|||tp|
Moton had the great opportunity of
life to strike a blow for freedom
when he was on the platform as the
alleged representative of the eolored
people. Had he been a brave and
fearless leader, when he learned of
the segregation of the colored people
at the exercises he would have turned
to President Harding and said: "Mr.
President of the United States, Mr.
Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen:
Before making my set address, I
must make a protest against the se
gregation and huimiliation of the col
ored people at these exercises dedi
cating a monument to the memory of
the Great Emancipator, and as a rep*
resentative of one-eighth of the peo
ple of the United States I sav that
unless the barriers are torn down and
every vestige of discrimination re
moved my prepared address will re
main unspoken and the only words I
shall utter will be the words I have
just voiced. Let that go into the rec
ords as my speech."
Such a statement would have cre
ated a sensation. It would have
brought home to the audience the in
famous state of affairs into which
the nation has drifted. It would have
made Moton a real leader and his
words would have gone thundering
down the ages.

"BRAINS RULE IN BRAZIL"
Miss Bertha Lutz who represented
Brazil at the Pan-American Confer
ence of Women at Baltimore, recently
said in an address: "In Brazil there
is an aristocracy of brains, not of
money or of social position.
"If a woman has brains she has an
equal chance for recognition with
that of any man. In civil service ex
aminations there is no discrimination
against a womanif her grade is
higher than that of the man she gets
the public office.
"There are no fraternities or so
rorities in our universities. The
leaders of school movements are
those who have brainsnot those
who because of family or wealth are
elected to an exclusive set."
Nine-tenths of the people of Brazil
are mixed bloods, Portuguese, Negro
and Indian, and there is absolutely no
IS JUSTICE BLIND?
I honor the man who in the consci

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.

AS SERVANTS ONLY
After a year's suspension recruting
for the navy has been resumed. A
lot of posters are telling the winders
of the service in the navy. One of
the great sports of the marines has
been taking pot shots at colored
women and children in Haiti and it
ought to be put in the posters as an
added attraction. Colored citizens
can enlist only as "mess attendants."
The Harding administration has de
prived them of their rights as citi
zens. WANT, TO BE A STRKEBREAKER?
Boys, here is some news. Accord
ing to the press dispatches Constan
tinople's harem attendants have
struck for more money and shorter
hours. Many of the finest harems
have been left unguarded and their
owners are trying distractedly to find
su i ta ble substitutes for the strikers.
Russian refugees volunteered their
services, but it was found they were
not fitted for the job. The strikers
include eunuchs and other attendants.
"LILLY BLOCKS" FOR FORD
The "Lily Black" organization of
Richmond, Va., has prepared resolu
tion asking Henry Ford to run for
President and say they will support
him. And there is no one man in the
United States who has done more to
arouse race and religious prejudices
than Henry Ford.
A pretty little story is going the
rounds of the press about Robert
Russa Moton going to the rescue of
a white woman in New York city. It
was a brave act, but it also brings
to mind that he was not so brave
when his own wife was thrown out
of a Pullman sleeper in 1915. Ac
cording to the stories printed at the
time in the public press, he was not
with her and when he learned of the
affair he rebuked her for her temerity
going into a Pullman car.

CATION OF THE U-
The United Grand Chapter, O. E.
S., Missouri and Its Jurisdiction, held
its regular Annual Communication at
Richmond, Mo., beginning Wednesday
morning, June 28, -and continuing
through a three days' session.
Promptly at 10 o'clock Wednesday
morning the Grand Matron, Mrs. Lot
tie J. Gamble, called the assembly to
order. Upon her request the Grand
Secretary, Mrs. Marie A. Hedgeman,
called the roll of Chapters. There
being a constitutional number of rep
resentatives of Chapters present, the
Grand Matron reauested the roll call
of Grand Officer*. All elective Grand
Officers responded except two. The
Grand Matron filled all vacancies.
At the request of the Grand Matron,
Mr. R. P. Jackson, Grand Associate
Patron, assumed the duties of the
Grand Patron. After other necessary
preliminaries, the Acting Grand Pa
tron invited the Grand Matron to
open the United Grand Chapter in
ample form, which was done.
The interesting features of the
afternoon session of the first day
were the addresses of the Grand
Matron and Grand Patron, respec
tively, as well as reports from other
Grand Officers. The Acting Grand
Patron, Brother R. P. Jackson, deliv
ered an inspiring message. The ad
dress of the Grand Matron was the
best document of the kind ever de
livered in the United Grand Chapter.
Not only was it a recital of the rou
tine of thp office for the year but it
covered everv activity and was
fraught with knowledge showing un
surpassed skill in handling the many
issues of the year. Bv order of the
Grand Chapter, this address will be
published in advance of the journal
of printed proceedings and distrib
uted to every Chapter of this Juris
diction as well as to Sister Jurisdic
Interesting also was the report of
the Chairman on Foreign Corre
spondence, Mrs. Virginia E. Guy,
whose increasing abilitv along these
lines is a source of great pleasure.
The printed proceedings of more than
twenty-five Sister Jurisdictions were
reviewed. Nor was this all of her
work. Mrs. Guy and Mrs. Gamble
presented to the Grand Chapter the
greetings received at this communi
cation of the United Grand Chapter,
more than twenty in number coming
from Sister Jurisdictions and several
others from Grand Masters of Grand
Lodges of other Jurisdictions.

Grand Treasurer, were outstanding
and showed how carefully the funds

Two open 'sessions were held.
Thursday evening marked one open
session to which the public was in
vited. A delightful program was
rendered by the members of the
Grand Chapter before a crowded
house. The Chanter of Sorrow, con
ducted bv Degree Team of St. Louis,
was the feature of the public session
Friday morning. The' church was
crowded with visitors.
The result of the election of officers
was as follows:

The 'Grand Chapter voted also to
give Mrs. Gamble a Past Matron's
jewel on account of valiant service.
With the words of "Onward, Chris

Till We Meet Again" still ringing in
our ears, the United Grand Chapter
closed one of the busiest and most
successful Communications in the
thirty-one years of its existence.
,Thls-success was due in part also to
the very hospitable and generous
people of Richmond.
