AMERICAN UNITY LEAGUE FIGHTS

caling on them to support the league
in its campaign against the Klan and
its policies which, it is asserted,
would plunge America into the hat

kept the rest of the world in turmoil,

The appeals were signed by Bishop
Samuel Fallows, presiding bishop of
the Reformed Episcopal church, and
honorary chairman of the league
Attorney Patrick H. O'Donnell, tem
porary executive chairman, and S. M.
Melamed, editor of "East and West."
The appeal read in part:
"The American Unity League is
established to challenge, locally and
nationally, the power of the Ku Klux
Klan and its right to exist. Its
crusade is directed against these of
the Catholic' faith and( Jewish belief,
and also against the foreign-born
citizens and the Negro race, regard

"The Klan appeals to the power

give them the strength needed in

GIVES GOOD ADVICE
It is not often that we find a white
man advocating the doings of colored
people, because they are just like
other people, with the same desires,
the same aspirations, and have a God
given right to indulge in them. A

MOTON A MENACE
(From the Chicago Whip.)

National Negro Business League and
also holder of many high-sounding
titles, arrogated to himself the right
to speak for the twelve million black
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 acter
credited with depth of thought or
originality: 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.
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
of his race to the flag. Major

A -good deal of harm has come
from the popular notion that some
how federal laws are more strictly
enforced than state and local stat
utes, making the federal power de
sirable in every case where local au
thority is deficient. And yet the
same people complain of the growth
of centralization and the 'usurpation"
of power by the national administra
tion at the expense of the states. It
is high time for some, states to bring
their law enforcement machinery up
to the standard set by federal laws.
