Meet your gj-eat business and pro

j ? * ?
Stop reading your neighbor's papers.
The poor publishers need their dues.
[ * ? ?
The Indicator and the publisher will
take their variation next week. The
publisher intenjds visiting the Business
League and j spreading the news to
those who do not attend, in the issue
of the 27th. Don't miss this issue.
A few nighti ago a white man, sup
posedly in company with other white
men, in a certain city, was seen by two
white ladies pfeeping in their window.
The conclusion of robbery was imme
diately reached, but nobody was
caught, nobody placed in jail, there
fore nobody ?taken out of jail and
beaten. But jhis was not Greenwood
-perhaps thajt accounts for it.
The stand jThe Indicator takes to
encourage mojre patronage for Negro
enterprises cjosts The Indicator in
more than onk way. It does not only
cost us the space and time it uses but
there are* those who will not adver
to their establishments, we rather tell
our people ndt to trade with them by
continually advising them to patronize
their own. T?bis is a fact and a work
we are doing; for many who seem to
think it is but our duty. And conse
quently give; us but passing notice,
leaving us to sink or swim by our
self, while tlfey reap a rich harvest.
But some dayl perhaps they will realize
the worth of ?Negro journals and will
at least not only subscribe for their
own papers j but advertise freely in
them and promptly pay for same.
That's our h^pe, at any rate.
* * *
President Harding is now awarding
Southern Negroes for their strong to
gether pull tb have him elected Presi
dent of these United States by seeing,
as ex-President Taft declared he would
do and did, tjhat no Southern Negro is
appointed tQ any ?office where he
t would be offensive to white people.
The President either said what he
didn't mean in his front porch
speeches or =is now saying what he
* # *
The Negrojes have been paid off with
hot speech promises long enough. It
is now highj time that they so com
pletely register and unite that they
can command some respect of the very
people that |the Taft-Harding adminis
tration cl?i rn they are offensive to.
But, of course, this can only be done by
Negroes themselves putting race pride
and principles above a "mess of pot
* * *
Mid-night ; fish fries seem to be one
of the leading schemes of amusement
these nights. We do not know what
the mothers and fathers think of this,
but The Indicator thinks that if our
girls would devote such time thus
spent at borne helping parents and
guardians and reading wholesome lit
erature, etc., a more wholesome at
mosphere would prevail around our
girls and the remarks, "I can't find a
girl to trust" would be less used by
some of the young men who plan and
defray all expenses for such past
* * *
There is much yet for some young
women to learn for their betterment,
which some have learned just a little
too late to make corrections.
? ? ?
"Negroes have no rights that a
white President is bound to respect."
President Harding has not said that,
but the conclusion is, that's what he
meant when he said that he will not
"appojnt Southern Negroes to office.
* * *
Editor John Mitchell, of The Rich
mond Planet, has been nominated a
candidate for Governor of Virginia by
the new party of that State. It seems
that South Carolina and Georgia
might as well get'busy and do some
I thing too. Well, we are not expect
I ng anything much out of South Caro
I lina, but watch Georgia. The Negroes
! in that Congo State really do things.
Our white friends in Columbia are
really looking out for the comfort and
education of white youths to the com
plete exclusion of Negro youths. This
has no right so to be, but its really so
in Christian Columbia. And the
white heralds of the cross, as well as
the colored ones, are still preaching
the unadulterated gospel, while the
leading business and professional men
and women are standing idle waiting
and grumbling as usual.
Benedict College $5,000 Drive.
Despite the fact Morris College is
pronounced "the pride of the Negro
Baptists of South Carolina," Benedict
College should stand out pre-eminent
ly, the mother of Morris College, and
should not be forgotten hy her many
sons and daughters in and out of the
State. And The Indicator rejoices that
there are many sons and daughters in
this and other States who also rec
ognize this fact and are rallying
around their alma mater in her $5,000
drive. This by no means intends that
Morris College needs to be neglected in
the so doing, nor that it will. It sim
ply calls for fulfillment of rightful du
ties to the school that has done so
much for the Negro Baptists of the
State even before Morris College was
born, and whose work is not deterred
by Morris College's existence nor Mor
ris College's by its existence.
It is commendable to say that the
heads of these two institutions are on
the very best terms and are working
to keep the best terms * between the
two institutions. Both are working
;for the best education of the Negro
and the field in which they are work
ing is broad enough for both to work
and bring about the desired result ,
without friction. And both will (
But what The Indicator wishes to <
say mainly is that individuals and j
churches are getting right into this ,
$5,000 drive for Benedict College.
Churches in Columbia, to our personal j
knowledge, are setting aside a certain j
Sunday as Benedict Day to raise
money on this drive and they hope, ,
by their united ?efforts, tamise a <
creditable amount. This, The Indica- j
tor hopes, is not only true of Colum
bia, but every Baptist church in the t
State and every alumnus of the col- j
lege in other States. Every old stu- ,
dent as well should remember the col- (
lege in a financial way on this drive. \
To fail in raising this $5,000 means ^
that the college will fail to receive ^
the $10,000 promised by the General j
Education Board. What will the sons s
and daughters of Benedict do about j
the matter? e
Baptist Presidential Timber. '<
It is now gradually coming to the
surface. The present incumbent, Rev.
Dr. J. S. Earle, will find at the next
sitting of the Baptist Educational and
Missionary convention that there is at
least one more brother in the State
who thinks that he can just as well if
not better steer the old Baptist ship J
safely to port. ? i
As to any prospective presidential <
timber to this high office The Indi
cator has no fight to make on any one. '
And while it may be that there are ?
others who can fill the position just
as creditably as Dr. Earle, The Indi
cator thinks that the brotherhood's 2
Christlike duty is to give Dr. Earle a
/air and impartial trial to fill or fail 1
to fill this office another year duly jl
elected by the people. And then his (
works the success of the convention ?
?will determine whether or not the con
vention was Justified in conferring <
upon him this signal honor. Certainly 1
Dr. Earle will not leave a stone un- '<?
turned to crown the next sitting of 1
the convention and each succeeding <
session with success, and if he should 1
fail in the least the fault must be <
laid to the head and not the heart; 1
for no one can convince us to believe
now that there is another in the State 1
with a deeper interest in the work 1
than he has. And brethren, if the
fault should be of the head, would it *
not be more the spirit of love to help J
him, which would automatically help
the cause, rather than fight him for 1
his place? 1
The Indicator is fully aware of the '*
fact that it is not the organ of the
Baptist family and that its editor is <
not its authorized spokesman, never- '<
theless we are a Baptist and feel that
we have a right to a say in Baptist <
affairs. Therefore we express the i
opinion that the Baptist brotherhood
would do themselves and the cause a '
great justice to stand by the present i
incumbent, Dr. J. S. Earle. <

SUMMER SCHOOL CLOSED
AFTER SUCCESSFUL SES
SION AT ANDERSON, S; C.
The colored summer school for the
teachers of this section, held at the
Reed Street school, has just closed
a successful session. The school was
visited by both the local and the State
supervising officers and statements of
satisfaction are general. The school i
enrolled 137 teachers from Anderson
and adjoining counties. With the ex-?
ception of the Central summer schooli
held at the State college at Orange-)f
burg this seems to be the largest col
ored summer school of the State.
The instructors were J. L. Cain,|
Darlington; Mary E. Foster, Spartan
burg, and Alice E. Webb of this place.]
Both the literary and the industrial t
exhibits indicate that the colored chiklj
Iren of this section win proflfc*Aa*i?l
