To withhold offices from Negroes in
the South because of local objections
is merely to; encourage or suggest the
same elsewhere. An office is merely
an agency made necessary by the pres
ence and activities of the people-in
which Negrpes play important parts
-a fact fori which President Harding
doesn't give j a snap of the finger now
that he is in' the White House.
In Atlant^, Ga., the Negroes have
a real Business League in which they
work together, and have brought such
results as a block of business building's
ont Auburn j Ave., in which Negroes
are really doing business. One is a
tfery brick^^ucture with a
several 'yearew^ccessful op
eration. Inj another block just above
is the Citizen's Trust Company, cap
italized at $500,000. Not only is this
true of Atlanta, 4>ut in every other
city where ijfegroes are organized they
are bringing about results that mean
advancement for the race.

The best ! method a business man
can use to lose friends and create
strong enemies against his business is
that of crediting some people, some
times his best friends. Their methods
to harm your business will be to not
pay honest bills and discontinue spend
ing their cash with said business firms.
This is true as it relates to firms of
our group, ?but to the others they are
loyal and true. To this fact there are
many enterprises of our group who
will say, an^enl The Indicator knows
whereof it j speaks, for many have
been pointejd out to us with remarks
of disappointment and disgust.

The whit? Baptist minister at Swan
sea who seemed to have given his con
gregation 4uite an uplifting sermon
last Sunday night on "The Mind of
the Mob," l^d the way, that if all white
ministers would follow would do very
much to lessen mob rule in the South.
The Indicator has long since been
listening fj^r the white ministers to
play their (important part in the pro
gram ot eliminating mob\ rule and
lawlessness through their pulpits. One
has waded! out into the deep and we
think it isja fine course for all others
to pursue.! The Indicator takes off
its hat to I this minister, whoever he
is, and prky that others will follow

The Indicator called attention a few
weeks ago| to the poor school accom
modation ?provided for Negro youths
in this city, using the old dilapidated
Howard school building as the main
subject wjth the suggestion that the
ministers,bf the city take some steps'
to have tjie city fathers and school j
commissiopers better conditions. Upi
to this writing we have heard of no j
efforts beikg put forth in this cause.
If the ministers and leading laymen}
and women continue to keep silent on j
this very ! important matter we fear j
conditions! will long remain as they ?
ar? and Negro youths will be made to :
continue iiji danger and neglect because ?
of our neglectfulness to them. ?
We should now arise and assert our j
rights as ipen and women or hereafter j
hold our pjeace when imposed upon in :
other mattjers, local and national.
The information is ours with a cer
tainty that the Baptist presidential
timber is on the increase. We do not
claim this to be true but we do know
that there can be more honor seekers
than seekers of duty. We dare not
say this is true and truly hope that
all of the aspirants are but wrapped up
in the sacred duties of that high of
It is now passing strange that men
up in Baptist circles eyes are just open
to what should be done by a president
of the State convention this, too, by
men who were right next to the head
and saw as well as those lower down
that the affairs of the denomination
were suffering for lack of proper plan
ning and team work. And just now,
because a change has come, and the
opportunity for others to get high
honors, it can be so clearly eeen that
the present incumbent is not running
over the State and doing more than
any of his predecessors.
The Indicator (like many others) is
of the opinion that this campaigning
for the presidency of the State conven
tion is a most opportune time to di
vide the working forces and cripple
the work; for some favor the present
incumbent merely on the grounds that
he represents one wing of the National
convention while others are boosting
another because he represents the
other and in many cases this is being
done under cover while the other friv
iious reasons are brought out.
Advancing the Baptist cause in this
State should have long ago been the
highest ambition of every Baptist in
the State. Why at this late day must
there be such a rude awakening? Has
it been men heretofore rather than
measures? A figurehead can stand at
the head of Baptist affairs in this State
and carry out the orders and dictates
of a live executive board and accom
plish the wishes of the denomination
to a successful end. And is it not true
that the president and the executive
board have the affairs of the denomi
nation in charge until the convention
assembles? What assistance is the
board lending Dr. Earle? What sug
gestion has it offered him or order
given that he has refused to carry out?
If any put him down and try another,
otherwise he is entitled to a man's
chance and the hope will be brighter
with less eruptions.
