New Orleans, La., Oct. 5, 1917.
Julius F. Taylor, Editor The Broad Ax:
The New Orleans Negro Business
League met on Friday, Sept. 27, in
Central Congregational Church and
elected Hon. Walter L. Cohen president
to fill the place made vacant by the
death of Mr. ATimidcTJejoie, Sr., who
had been the local league's head ever
since it was first organized years ago.
New and greater activity is promised
under Mr. Cohen's leadership of tn"e
league, steps being taken immediately
after his election to stir up greater ac
tivity among the Colored people in busi
ness life and enterprises in this city.
The second annual National Farm and
Live Stock 8how at New Orleans, suc
cessfully launched last year by the
white people, in which the Colored peo
ple had no part during its continuance,
but offered a Negro Day when the
whites were finished with it, is to open
Nov. 10, and continue up to and includ
ing Nov. 19. The League appointed a
committee consisting of Walter L.
Cohen, W. K. Hopes, Bcv. Alfred Law
less, Jr., Rev. H. H. Dunn and Thos. A.
Carr to call upon the National Farm and
Live Stock Show managers and let them
know that the New Orleans Negro Busi
ness League was ready to co-operate
and take part in the show, if a part of
the facilities for exhibition be set apart
for use of Colored exhibitors through
out the show, and a day be named and
announced to the public through the
press and otherwise as Negro Day when
the Colored people will have full
charge. The result of the League's
move is, according to the advice re
ceived in a circular letter dated Sept.
26, 1917: "Negro exhibits will be in a
special building all of tho ten days of
the show and will be eligible to com
pete for prizes on the same conditions
as any others. The day on which our
program will be rendered is one of the
ten during which the show will run and
not the day after the Fair closes as last
year," continues the letter. The com
mittee further declares that "Active
participation in the National Farm and
Live Stock Show to be held in New
Orleans Nov. 10-19, 1917, willgive to
the Negro business men of the city a
standing in the public mind never be
fore enjoyed." A general meeting of
Negro men who are really interested in
promoting Negro business enterprises
was called Sept. 28 and a general dis
cussion of the possibilities of active co
operation, as well as a plan of cam
paign of publicity and program was
had, and did much to instill interest.
The New Orleans Negro Business
League headquarters under the Dejoic
regime were in the Colored Y. M. C. A.
Building, 2220 Dryatlcs street, where
all meetings were held. The two re
cent meetings of the League have been
held in Central Congregational Church,
the Y. M. C. A. building having been
leased to the New Orleans Public
School Board for a school of domestic
science teaching for Colored girls, with
Mrs. Dr. Perkins of Tampa, Florida, in
charge and Miss Magnolia E. Griggs of
Atlanta, Ga., assistant.
The musical recital at First Street
M. E. Church Sunday afternoon, given
by Miss Gladys Hirst and other local
talent, was a fine affair. Miss Camille
Nickerson directed it. Mr. Huntley
and Mr. Clease had parts as vocal so
loists, while Mrs. Perkins, domestic
science teacher, gave a reading. Miss
Hirst, who left Sunday night to re
sume her studies at Fisk University,
Nashville, Tenn., acquitted herself en
tertainingly in interpreting her piano
numbers on-the program. Messrs. Clease
and Huntley have good voices whieh
were in good form and pleasing. Mrs.
Perkins reading was of a delightful
The date named for the sending of
the Colored men drafted for the United
States army from New Orleans to Fort
Pike, Ark., is Oct. 7. Almost half of
