Annual Report of the Principal, Miss
Charlotte R. Thorne, Shows Growth
In Buildings From One to Nineteen.
Located on Tract Where Auction
Block Once Stood.
The growth of the Calhoun Indus
trial school, in Lowndes county, Ala-,
as shown by the recent annual report
of tbe principal. Miss Charlotte B.
Thorne. is highly gratifying to the
trustees and friends of the school, who
have aided the Institution in a finan
cial way. No feature of work by
which the colored people In that sec
tion of the state might advance them
selves In education or other lines of
industry is neglected.
Twenty years ago when the school
was started there were only three
teachers. They served In the capacity
of officers as well as instructors. Tbe
force now consists of twenty-nine of
ficers, teachers and other assistants.
In 18S2 there were only one school
building and one frame cottage for
the accommodation of students and
teachers. Nineteen buildings now
form the group of school property
now used for various purposes.
An Interesting fact In connection
with the Calhoun school is that it is
located upon a tract of land upon
which an auction block once stood,
where slaves were sold as so much
merchandise to the highest bidder.
The first building erected was painted
white and soon afterward rook the
name of "Horning Star," so named by
the people of tbe surrounding country,
as they saw In the efforts of the
founders of the school hope and en
couragement for the colored people.
Twenty years ago. says the princi
pal, four classroom teachers spent
most of their time trying to accustom
the young people in school to tbe
"strange talk of the teachers," for our
language was as strange to them as
theirs was unintelligible to us. This
past twentieth year tbe teachers have
been carrying class work from the
kindergarten through nine grades to
In the day school the enrollment this
year totals 265, of which 140 are girls

there are thirteen women and fourteen

The year 1912 witnessed many suc
cessful achievements among the color
ed people of the United States. More
than ever before they have directed
attention along the lines of genuine
constructive work. Remarkable ad
vances were made In business, educa
tion, civic movements and religious
culture. At intervals from Jan. 1 to

tion proclamation and in the celebra
tion of Washington's birthday.
Early in the year legal steps were
taken In a test case at the Lyric the
ater. In New York, to force recogni
tion of tbe civil rights act. The case
was that of Louis F. Baldwin, a mall
clerk and real estate dealer, against
the assistant treasurer of the Lyric
theater for refusing Baldwin tbe use
of orchestra seats which Baldwin had
bought Tbe case was handled by the
vigilance committee of the National
Association For the Advancement of
Colored People. It resulted success
fully. Intsrnational Conference at Tuokogoo.
In April representatives from eight
een foreign countries or provinces at
tended an international conference at
tbe Tuskegee (Ala.) institute, which
was called by Dr. Booker T. Wash
ington. The object of the conference
was to make an investigation into tbe
methods and systems used at Tuske
gee with a view of having the same
used by these representatives at their
schools and business places.
Tbe months of May and June were
notable for great religious gatherings
of the various denominations. In Kan
sas City. Mo, the quadrennial confer
ence of the A. M. E. church was held,
at which four new bishops were elect
ed. Tbero were representatives from
all foreign posts where the denomina
tion carries on missionary work. The-.
Methodist Episcopal conference was
held in Minneapolis. Mhuu and lasted
nearly the whole of June. Prominent

shown In the collections, many of them
bringing out expressions of surprise as
well as genuine admiration that there
