THE DOUGLASS NATIONAL
Among the many pretty booths at
tke Dramatic Festival, running this
veek at the Eighth Regiment Armory
none has attracted the crowds as has
tiit of the Douglass National Bank.
This booth is distinctive, in that its
sign portrays the history of the Col
ored citizenry from slavery to the
present time; on the left of the sign
appears a picture of the Sainted Fred
enck Douglass, "typifying physical
freedom," in the center Booker T.
Washington representing "industrial
freedom" and on the right a portrait
of P W. Chavers, president of the
bank showing "economic freedom,"
the three great steps in the upward
development of the race.
On the opening date and each sne
teeding day since, the interest around
the booth has been so great as to ne
cessitate the services of three repre
sentatives of the bank. Mrs. Mary

CHARLES E. STUMP, TRAVELING CORRESPONDENT
FOR THE BROAD AX, VISITS MUSKOGEE, OKLA
HOMA, AND SECURES A VIVID ACCOUNT OF THE
RACE RIOTS IN TULSA.
MusTcogec, Okla. -Let us all pray.
We will have to resort tdhe weapons
of our mothers and fathers back in
the days of slavery. I 'am- not in
clined to say any "cuss" words, or
unkind words about anyone. I am
shocked, disgusted, humiliated, vexed,
moody, despondent and almost every
thing else a human being can be, and
I am sure that you are also, and I
ask you to join me in prayer to God
for a change of conditions. Surely
God will hear our prayers. We have
suffered, and yet I saw in the good
book where he will not permit us to
suffer more than we can bear, or
something like that
As I -sit down to take my pen in
hand to write you a few lines, I am
reminded of the thousands of men,
women and children homeless today
just a few miles from this place, in
a land of civilization, in the land -that
"Star Spangled banner, long may it
wave. Over the land of the free and
the home of the brave." I wonder
what in the hen feathers that means
Lto the hoodlums of Tulsa, who burn
ed every Negro church, every home
in reach, every place of business car
ried on by Negroes, as a plaything,
and took human life indiscriminately
at will and pleasure. Where was the
Star Spangled Banner when fire was
set to homes of American citizens,
when homes were fired into, killing
inmates? What will our President
say or do in this matter? What will
our Republican Congress do now?
You have read accounts of the mob
violence in Tulsa, and of a race riot,
and the Lord only knows what else
it has been called. It was the slaugh
ter of human beings, the destruction
of property, and if I knew anything
else to say I would say it I want to
give it as I have been able to gather
it, for I could not get into the town
myself. I was on my way there, but
could not reach it
It seems that a white woman was
elevator conductor or something like
that She lifted the people up and
down in a building, and a man of my
race entered it, and accidentally
knocked against her foot, and she is
said to have uttered, some cuss words
at him and he spoke back, and she
made the cry that he had insulted
her. That was all that was necessary
to warm up the white people. He
was arrested, placed in jail, and it was
said that there would be a lynching
party that night Negro men said,
There aint gwyn to be o lynching
in this town."
Black men got together. -I am told
that the Sheriff and police told them
to go and protect their homes and
they would take care of the prisoner.
They seemingly were afraid to trust
them, and they said they would help
to take care of him. They got their
smoke wagons, and went to .the jail.
Went through the streets in cars with
their guns, for they were brave men.
I don't know who started the shoot
ing, but shooting was started that
night, and the white folks ran. While
my people were shooting away thtir
powder, white folks were getting
ready. All night long we were shoot
ing, jand white folks were getting
ready. They were organizing, and
just as soon as the soldiers got to
town, then they commenced their
devilment They lined up colored
men, marched them into the armory,
police stations. Shot in houses, and
started to fire, until there was not left
one house in the territory known as
"Little Africa." They would riddle
every house, command the occupants
to come out, and if they were women
and children they were unmolested,
but carried to places of safety, and
the house burned.
The soldiers were glad to be called
out, for they went into Negro stores,
helped themselves to what they want
ed, and then fired the building. It
was really hell on earth. As I write
to "you I am shedding tears, for there
is nothing else left for me to do. I
am really too sick to think damn or
even say it hence mine is" "Lord
I talked with Mrs. L. S. Brown, of
Tulsa, whose husband is a prominent
man in this section of the country.
She was at home alone. When it was
raining bullets, she went to bed in the
bath tub, believing that bullets could
not penetrate a bath tub, for it was
bullet proof. She" remained there all
night long talking to God, and the
next morning she left the bath room,
went to the dining room and stretched
out on the floor. All the windows
were destroyed, great holes in the
house, dresses hanging up in the dress
closets were torn Into threads by the
bullets, things destroyed in her home,
and shouts, "Come out" At last a
man ventured in her house and saw
"Anyone else in here?" he asked.
"Yes, an old gentleman." .
"Come on out here."
"May I get my hat and some other
"Yes, get them-quickJ don't know
as yon will need them."
She went back, got her hat and 'a
few other things, was placed In an
automobile, also, the old man who was
there, and they were carried to a
place .of safety and her homevburned,
As soon as Mr. Brown heard of
what was going on, he started for
Tulsa Wednesday morning, tint was
not allowed to light He went on up
the road and returned. He was de
termined to get his wife, and he did
get her too, and she is safe now in
Muskogee, and without a change of
clothes. She is as happy as could be,
and declared that the better class of
white people were indeed kind, many
of them taking women and children
in their homes for protection. Many
of thewomen lost all their clothes,
dressed only in their sleeping gar
ments, and children the same way.
Rev. S. S. Jones, Lawyer Emmctt
Stewart, Rev. J. T. K. Johnson, and
Rev. W. E Stewart, have started a
relief fund to help some of those who
are homeless and clothless in fact
to help all, and a letter to Revfj. T.
Johnson, D. D., Muskogee, will re
ceive attention. What are you going
It takes coin to back your sorrow
right now. Are you willing? We
had just as well be prepared for -what
ever may come, for it is coming. But
let us hope that it will never be
again. These outbreaks result in
death and in destruction of property.
I have been going some since I
mailed you the last letter. I was then
in Whichita, Kansas, and you will see
where I am now. I went from Wich
ita to Oklahoma City, then out to see
Dr. H. W. Conrad, to see what he
could do for me. He listened to
them bugs plotting against my life,
and called them liars, and told them
that they were not going to do what
they thought tljey were. He said that
Dr. G. C Hall had done the right
thing. I tell you it was great He is
kept busy as usual. The Park Sani
tarium is a great place and Dr. H. W.
Conrad is a good doctor. Dr. J. W.
Rankin is going to be there this
month. He needs some treatment,
and bugs are after him.
It is wonderful how doctors can
put something to their ears and put
a little fiat thing against you and just
hear everything that is going on in
side. I am so glad that I live in this
age. I will have more to say in

MISUSE OF WORD "ASSAULT"
LED TO TULSA CARNAGE
Tulsa, Okla. Misuse of a word in
describing a row between a white girl
and a Negro boy precipitated the Tul
sa race riot
Dick Rowland, a Negro bootblack,
stepped into a store elevator and on
the foot of the white girl operate.
She slapped the Negro and he retali
ated by grasping her arm and throat
She screamed and a floor walker
seized the Negro, who later was
turned over to the city police of
Tulsa. The girl filed a charge of
assault and battery and the Negro
was delivered to. the county authori
ties by the city police.
An afternoon newspaper in report
ing the incident that caused the ex
citement used" the word "assault," but
gave insumcient information to con
fine the term to a mere altercation.
The public got the meaning that rape
had been attempted, which was un
true. If the above statement is true, then
Dick Rowland was morally wrong in
'fighting with the white girl after he
had tramped on her feet, and his rash
'or thoughtless act caused untold suf
fering on the part of the white and
colored people in that city, and the
destruction of millions of dollars
worth of property. Editor.

FIRST FEDERAL BOARD
CONFERENCE AT HAMPTON.
"Better People, Better Homes, Better
Communities' the Purpose of Vo
cational Home Economics Col
ored Teacher-Training Staff
df Southern Region Closes
Hampton, Va. The large purpose
of home-economics instruction in vo
cational schools and classes is self
improvement together with home and
community betterment," declared Ade
laide S. Baylor, Washington, D. C,
federal agent for home economics,
Federal Board for Vocational Edu
cation, at the close of the first five
day conference for the colored teacher
training staff of thewSouthern region,
which was recently held at Hampton
Miss Baylor, who was inf charge of
the conference, said: "Nine of the
thirteen States with Institutions ap
proved by the Federal Board for
training colored teachers of home
economics, had a representative pres
ent at Hampton. The following states
were represented: 'Virginia, North
Carolina, Florida, Alabama, Texas,
Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky, and
Louisiana. The missing states were:
South Carolina, Georgia, Mississippi,
and West .Virginia. Five state super
visors of home economics assisted
with thc conference at Hampton
Guyton Teague, Mississippi; Martha
Thomas, Tennessee; Edith Thomas,
North Carolina; Ivol Spafford, Ala
bama; and Ora Hart Avery, Virginia.
"Hampton Institute made available
all its facilities for makin the con
ference a success. Carrie A. Lyford,
who is the director of the Hampton
Institute School of Home Economics,
gave her entire time for, five days to
assisting with the conference pro
gram, which included (1) a field trip
for community study, (2) a visit to,
and study of, the Hampton Institute
dormitories, (3) a half day spent in
the Whittier School, which is used as
a center for observation and practice
teaching by the Hampton students, (4)
a visit to a typical, local, rural, col
ored school; and (5) an inspection of
the industrial exhibit of the colored
schools of Elizabeth City County,
which was displayed at the county
Program Based on Needs.
Miss Baylor also stated that an
order to carry out the vital purpose
of vocational home-economics, there
must be developed a program which
is based on actual individual, home,
and community needs. The field trip,
for example, showed the teacher
trainers in home economics that, since
housewives arc caring for poultry,
cows, and gardens, instruction must
be given in the common activities of
the home, both within and without,
with a view to increasing the amount
of productive work and thereby en
larging the family income.
"While the teacher," said Miss Bay
lor, "is the chief factor in training
for home-making, her valuable time
and energy must be conserved and her
instructions must be made more effii-
cient by the use of suitable plant and
equipment, including charts, posters,
exhibits,- illustrative materials, bulle
tins, text-books, reference works, type
written and mimeographed notes
"If the community is known by a
skilful teacher, there will be avail
able people who can contribute from
their experience and furnish valuable
materials for the teaching of home
economics. Such, people will include,
for example, merchants, manufactur
ers, dealers in special wares, garden
ers, poultry raisers, and small farm
ers." Conference Program.
the conference was held
under the direction, of Anna E. Rich
ardson, chief of the home-economics
educational service of the Federal
Board for Vocational Education, as

Example of Co-operation.
The conference at Hampton Insti
tute stressed the importance of provid
ing good equipment, carefully-made
plans, and competent supervision
in all home-economics work, and,
above all, of developing the best
type of womanhood. The confer
ence was thoroughly helpful and
valuable to all who attended' It

Economics changes man's activities.
As you change a man's activities yon
change his way of living, and as you
change his environment you change
his state of mind. Precept and injunc
tion do not perceptibly affect men; but
food, water, air, clothing, shelter,
pictures, books, music, will and do
affect them. Exchange.
Few Killed by Hailstones.
One of the unsolved mysteries Is
why people are so rarely killed by
hailstones. Only one case has been
recorded in Europe. Such fatalities
have happened more often in India
than anywhere else. In the Mornda
bad district May 1. 18SS. about 250
persons were killed by a hailstorm.
Parrot a. Favorite Beneficiary.
If all of the money that has been
left to parrots in different countries
could be gathered together it would
make enough to support the average
orphan asylum. In most cases these
bequests come from unmarried ladles
who have found solace and compan
ionship with their favorite parrots.
There are Many.
There are many who talk on from
Ignorance rather than from knowl
edge, and who find the former an in
exhaustible fund of conversation.

The blue serge one-piece dress has
lost nothing of its general popularity.
It is, perhaps, nlmpler this year, for
very many of them have little or no
trimming. There Is the blue serge
coat dress which Id a stunning thing
when it Is well done. One of them
'was made with a wrapping sort of col
lar trimmed only with two "wide folds
of the serge itself. There were three
quarter length sleeves with wide cuffs
formed from the same grouping of
folds. And the dress then opened at
the left side where a diagonal line
formed the opening, and the wfiole

that there was not a single bit of re
lief In the shape of trimming or col
ored facing, but the gown was smart
and its chic was helped along by the
addition of an entirely dark blue hat
made of a soft draped French fame.
There is a tendency to trim many
of the serge dresses with bands of
red, either of braid or of a soft
duvetyn that looks like flannel or with
facings of silk applied in some way.
This Is a touch that Is always good
with blue serge, and it livens up a

DECORATIONS FOR THE HAIR
Gold I ibon and Braid, Jet Orna

Articles Afford Good Effect
Color contrast is a good rule for
making the headdress becoming. Black
hair Is set off with gold ribbon or
braid, while auburn locks are stun
ning with Jet ornaments fastened to a
velvet bandeau. Bronze ornaments are
likewise stunning for the titan-toned
coiffure. Bronze paint will quickly
coat all sorts of appropriate orna
ments to make a headdress, such as
flowers, leaves, grasses, Jewelry and
feathers. A silver wreath of small
flowers or Just plain leaves is lovely
on black hair. Golden hair is beauti
ful with, pale-green turquoise or Dres
