CHICAGO, SEPTEMBER 8, 1921
I wish to state that a huhiIkt of lead
ing citizens called urnm me to accept
the General Chairmanship of the Fort
Dearborn Hospital and Training Sehool
for Nurses in their fund-raising cam
paign for $100,000. I hesitated for
sometime, owing to the many business
interests with which I am connected,
that requires niy personal attention,
1 ' ' " li"fllWll 'Willi Mllll-ll
and I was loath to accept the hnor at
thi time, but after listening to their
iuo:4 worthy and human appeal, I in-
estimated the institution and the men
who were directors and advisory mem
bers of the board, and found them
' vomp of the prominent business men
n -iding in the immediate community,
H whom the management could safely
be entrusted for the benefit of the
nas-is. second to none, and that the
Fort Dearborn Hospital and Training
School for Nur.es, being a real public
institution, controlled by public spirit
ed men for the public god, with a
President of the Chicago National Life Insurance Company, Appeals
to the Colored Citizens of Chicago to Rally to the Support of
the Fort Dearborn Hospital and Training School for Colored

Wc have never thought seriously
that the Ku Klux Klan would ever
really amount to anything except a
nuisance and a menace to Colored peo
ple in the rural unprotected sections.
That was when we had concluded that
the Klan only meant to "keep the Ne
gro in his place." .
TW cinro it has leaked out that the
Ku Klnx Klan is against the "Catho
lics, Jews and Negroes" we know it is
"Good Night, Ku Klar."
The Colored Brother is the weakest
of the trio, we admit. And we seri
ously doubt if he meant to take any
Ku Klux foolishness without giving an
"eye for an eye." But with the other
two elements'of the nation's popula
tiontwo of its strongest elements, the
Jew and the Catholic to have common
cause with him, the Colored Brother
need bother no longer. That is to say,
tit is only a matter-of time now and the
Kn Klux Klan will go back to the
grave from which it eprung "unwept,
nnhonorcd and unsung" But while we
are passing, wo might point out the
irony of this thing: the Klan calls
itself 100 per cent American and says
: !,.-. ;. tn crash all nn-Amencans.
What a joke when it announces as the
subjects of its persecution "The Catho
lic, the Jew and the negro- i" ---most
tmly 100 per cent Americans m
