NEW IDEAS IN HOSPITALS
A new type of hospital is neanng
completion and will shortly be opened
in New York Gty. The unique fea
ture is found in the fact tllit the hos
pital will be equipped with 300 pri
vate rooms and no wards. It will
receive all "classes of patients, both
jay and charitable, and, as announced,
none will be denied.
Each room will be fitted for a
single patient, and so furnished with
pictures and curtains as to make it
pleasant and homelike.
The promoters of this decided inno
vation for the care of the sick claim
that there will be absolutely no waste
of heat or light, since it will be pos
sible to shut off completely those
rooms or wings which are not in use;
a ward must be kept heated and
lighted even though it is only half oc
cupied. Elimination of sex and dis
ease classification, made largely pos
sible by the single room system, will
allow TnT?mtim use of the entire hos
pital at all times. Each room, having
its own equipment, lavatory and toilet,
is an isolation unit. Danger of infec
tion and-contagion is absolutely elim
inated. " -
Every room, because of the un
usual X-shaped plan of structure, will
be an .outside room, with plenty of air
and sunshine. The hospital will be
open to all persons regardless of race,
color or creed. It is founded with the
idea that to give a patient complete
contentment of tnind is to start him
well on the Toad to recovery.

HE WILL SOON HAVE A
PAIR OF LEGS
Mr. J. M. Blank of Jacksonville, III.,
has just arrived in Chicago, where he
is to get a brand new pair of legs and
be taught to walk again. Mr. Blank
lost both legs sometime ago in a rail
way accident near Jacksonville. He
sued the Illinois Central Railroad
Company for $20,000, but his attorney
compromised on $400. This amount
was soon used up. Interested friends
raised money, bought him a farm, and
had him taught poultry raising. Then
they "tried to find out whether science
could supply him with better ability
to get around. They learned of a
place in Chicago where he could get
artificial legs and probably learn to
walk in a few days. But Mt. Blank
knew, no one in Chicago who would
take care of him and a charitable or
ganization in Jacksonville wrote to
Chicago in his behalf and was re
ferred to the Urban League.
Mr. Thayer of the League staff ar
ranged fo'r a stopping place, met Mr.
Blank at the station, and will see to
it that he gets to and from the doc
tor's. With the interest and help of
all these friends, there is hope that
Mr. Blank will get real benefit and
become a happier and productive
member of society. v

Life Insurance Company does not en
courage Negroes to take out policies
in their institution has just been dis
closed by Mr. Woodward, vice presi
dent of the company, in an interview
with James H. Hulbcrt, Executive
Secretary of the New York Urban
League. It is said that Mr. Woodward-admitted
that over 12 per cent
of the company's policy holders are
colored; stating that to employ col
ored agents would only stimulate
more business among the race which
is not desired.
"The law forces us," said Mr.
Woodward, "to give the same policies
to Negroes as we give to whites,
while the rating due to high mortality
among Negroes is almost twice as
great." Mr. Woodward did not hesi
tate to urge that Negroes organize
their own companies instead of 'seek
ing policies with his company.
This information was elicited from
Mr. Woodward when Jas. H. Hubert
of the New York Urban League
called upon him and urged him to
employ Negro collectors in Negro
Many Negroes throughout the
country have taken offense at the
statement by Mr. Woodward and a
"strike" is threatened.

Announcement was made some time

enticing proposition had been offered
them. The "eligibles" were to be re
stricted to Negro business and profes

first-class ship with all modern ap
pointments. They were to make the
trip with the knowledge and sanction
of the American, French and British
governments for study purposes and
were to be accompanied by a lecturer,
who, on the way over, was to give a
preliminary survey of African condi-
tions. The tee to cover tnis service
was $495 and the date for sailing was
December 3. 1921. Shortly before that
time the sailing date was postponed

BOOK CHAT BY MARY WHITE

A SOCIAL HISTORY OF THE
By Benjamin Brawley
Published by The MacMillan Com
pany, New York City
Price $4.00 including postage
This new history will be felt by
many to be the most important book
upon the Negro that has been printed
for years. We have had a deluge of
opinion on the question, doled out to
us by black and white alike, but Mr.
Brawley gives us a history, compiled
with conscientious care and cover
ing a long period of time. From the
coming of the first slave ship to the
founding of the National Association
for the Advancement of Colored Peo
ple and the National Negro Im
provement Association is a goodly
perio'd and the 400 pages that the
book contains can with difficulty com
press all the important things that the
writer has to say. Indeed a criticism
of the book would be the division of
space, 70 of the volume concerning
itself with the period before the Civil
War. This hurries the latter part and
perhaps paints an even more gloomy
There is nothing passionate or
emotional in Mr. Brawley's writing.
He practices great calm and strives
to be if possible strictly impartial.
Nevertheless, one would soon know
that the book was either by a Negro
or by one who "thought black" not
because of the presentation of the
facts but because of the facts them
selves. We view the Indian wars,
especially the wars of the Seminoles,
through the Negroes' eyes and learn
that the Indian and the Negro raised
among the Indians fought shoulder
to shoulder against the efforts to
make them migrate. Mr. Brawley
concludes his chapter on the Indian
Wars with the statement: "In the
course of the Seminole wars the
rights of Indian and Negro alike were
ruthlessly disregarded. There was
redress for neither before the courts,
and at the end in dealing with them
every honorable principle of men and
nations was 'violated." The desire to
get back runaway slaves who were
received by the Indians and treated
by them with far more humanity than
they were treated by the whites, was
a controlling motive in the desire of
the people of Florida and Alabama to
N. Y. WORLD CRITICISES OP
POSITION TO DYER BILL
The National Association for the
Advancement of Colored People, 70
Fifth avenue. New York, has made
public extracts from an editorial in
th' New York Woild of January 8,
1922, in which the World accuses the
Southern Democrats opposing the
Dyer Anti-Lynching Bill of having
"given away their case." Says the
"The most deadly blow ever struck
at those residuary rights and powers
of the States since the beginning of
the Government is the Eighteenth
Amendment, and for that fact the
South and its Representatives at
Washington are most of all responsi
ble. They cared nothing then for
State police power and all that. The
more completely it was destroyed and
merged in the Central Government,
so far as prohibition was concerned,
the better they were suited. They
turned their backs on the most funda
mental principles for which they and
.their political predecessors had stood
since the time of Jefferson and went
bag and baggage over to a position
that even the traditional party of cen
tralization would have repudiated as
unthinkable hardly half a dozen years
"And now they are loudly talking
State police power against a little
anti-lynching bill whose whittling
down invasion of State jurisdiction is
not comparable for a moment with
that effected by the Eighteenth
Amendment! It is to laugh, and this
no 'doubt explains the great good na
ture with which the Republican side
of the House listens to the Southern
protests and then votes them down."

church, left Sunday evening for Hot

force the Indians to migrate.
Mr. Brawley gives great, and de
servedly great, importance to the
slave insurrections of Denmark Vesey
and Nat Turner. The terror that
these men, especially Nat Turner, im
planted in the heart of the southern
slave holder led to harsh legislation
especially against the free Negro, but
in the long run the Negro gained.
Every time he made his hideous stat
us known he helped the cause of anti
slavery. Another matter, new in the recital
of the anti-slavery agitation as we
have read it in white histories, is the
story of the convention of Negroes
held in Philadelphia September 15,
1830, three years before the founding
of the American Anti-Slavery Society.
One reads here of great names of
Bishop Allen, of Pennington, Shadd,
and others. And at these first con
ferences were the white champions of
freedom. Garrison, Tappan, Jocelyn.
The book brings out with great clear
ness the rebellious Negro both slave
and freeman. The characteristics that
we applaud when we see them in the
Negro youth today, their revolt
against prejudice and oppression, Mr.
Brawley shows very clearly were not
missing in the much more dangerous
and different days of slavery.
There is an important chapter upon
Liberia, a story of a brave group of
pioneers whose difficulties were far
worse than those that the Puritan
fathers ever encountered. There were
not only the immense hordes of na
tives, unfriendly from the first, but
the European powers, foremost
among them the British, ready to
seize any unfair advantage and to
steal from the new republic whenever
they found it sate, lhe marvel is
that Liberia has survived at alL
I have said that Mr. Brawley i
unemotional, but one chapter that on
organization and agitation ends with
the wonderful story of Soujourner
Truth speaking at the Woman's Suf
frage Convention. "Dat little man in
black dar," and Sojourner Truth
points her long fingers at him, "he
say women can't have as much rights
as man, 'cause Christ weren't a
woman. But what did Christ come
from?" Raising her voice she re
peated, "Whar did Christ come from?
From God and a woman. Man had
nothing to do with him." How much
we have missed who have never seen
Sojourner Truth! But her words can
still thunder throughout the coming
