HOW TO SUCCEED
By Former Governor William Sulzer
of New York City.
"It is a real pleasure for me to con
gratulate the Mangin Junior High
School Boys on their graduation.
Certainly no one wishes them one
and all more success in their lines of
future undertakings than I do. ,
Our country spells opportunity. The
door is never closed to the young man
who wants to get on and is determined
to make good Everything depends
on the j-oung man himself on his
energy, his honesty, his enthusiasm,
his health, and his determination.
My advice to a young man, starting
out in the world, is to select some av
enue of human endeavor congenial to
his hopes and his ambition?, and then
follow it without deviation to the end.
Sooner or later, he will reach the end,
and his efforts will be crowned with
Do not try to do many things, be
cause if you do, the chances arc you
will do none of them welL
Select carefully what you want to
do. Stick to it Do not get discour
aged Learn to do one thing welL
Try to be first in that one thing. Make
up your mind to know all about it that
can be known no matter what it is. By
beinggreat in one thing, most people
will think you are great in many
Only the very few can be great in
several things. So select your voca
tion in life and keep saying in your
mind you are going to be the most
successful person in the world in that
line of endeavor. " If you will stick to
it, never lose faith m yourself; never
lose sight of your destination; never
lose confidence in your ability; the
time -will come when you will succeed
far beyond the dreams of your most
Congressman Madden spent a busy
day in his home district last Sunday.
Beginning early in the morning, when
he left his rooms at the Union League
Club, this champion of human liberty
was the center of an endless round of
functions. At two o'clock he ap
peared before the Second Ward Re
public Club, where among those pres
ent were politicians, precinct commit
teemen and workers of the First Con
gressional District, whcelhorses like
Senator Ettelson, Alderman Jackson,
Alderman Anderson, W. A. Bither,
Francis Brady, Adolph Marks, Oscar
DePriest, Edward H. Wright, Morris
Lewis, Adelbert H. Roberts, Charles
A Griffin, James A. Scott and many
Congressman Madden "gave account
of his stewardship" and in his char
acteristic way recounted the work of
the present United States Congress.
The congressman also congratulated
the district on the fact that they had
sent to Congress the man who is now
chairman of the House appropriations
committee. Senator Ettelson was
called upon, pledged his every en
deavor for the second ward organiza
tion which he recognized as responsi
ble for his elevation politically. Col.
Bither, Mr. Roberts and Alderman An
derson also spoke.
At about three o'clock the congress
man found himself whirled in an auto
mobile to the Pilgrim Baptist Church,
where he spoke to a large audience.
Alderman DePriest, who was in
charge of the congressman, then
piloted him to a reception by the .Chi
cago Branch, N. A. A. C P., held in
the parlors of the Railroad Men's
Club, 3441 Wabash Avenue, where a
most impressive testimonial was ac
corded Mr. Madden. Morris Lewis
presided and introduced Mrs. Bush
Banks, acting executive secretary of
the Chicago Branch, N. A- A. C P.,
who, in most beautiful fashion, spoke
the appreciative sentiment of the
branch for the work Mr. Madden had
done in support of the passage of the
Dyer Anti-Lynching Bill, closing her
excellent remarks by presenting to
this champion of human liberty a
handsome silk umbrella. Accustomed
as is Mr. Madden to speaking before
the great national congress, vast au
diences and amidst diversified sur
soundings, he was at this moment
overcome. Speechless with the emo
tion that was surging within him it
was some moments and accompanied
with tears before his response was
audible to the breathless, waiting au
dience of officers and members of the
association assembled Mr. Madden
expressed his deep rcalyatfon of the
honor paid him which he questioned
as being" wholly deserved for he said
he had but done his duty and was
entitled to no credit for having the
courage of his convictions. The brief
function was brought to a close, those
present following Congressman Mad
den and Mr. DePriest in partaking of
light refreshments and having the
hand of fellowship from all those pres
ent. Mr. Madden is a member of the
Chicago Branch, N. A. A. C P., in
"good and regular standing.''
A large audience assembled in the
evening at the service of the Commu
nity Center at Wendell Phillips High
School, Rev, W. D. Cook, pastor; Mr.
Harvey A. Watktns, president .of the
principal speaker again being Con
gressman Madden. The usual excel
lent music was furnished by Prof. J.
Wesley Jones and his choir. On the
arrival of the speakers' party, the fol
lowing were seated on the platform:
Congressman Madden, State Repre
sentative Roberts, Edward H. Wright,
Sandy Trice, Charles A. Griffin, Mor
ris Lewis, Julius F. Taylor( T. L.
Mr. Madden spoke at length of the
progress of the Dyer Anti-Lynching -'
Bill to its successful passage, recount
ing the valiant work done by James
Weldon Johnson, secretary of the
N. A. A. C P. He sounded a warn
ing that the work was not finished
and that some more fighting would be
necessary in the senate Which re
minds the voters of this district that
pressure should be brought to bear on
the senior and junior senators from
Illinois, asking their support of the
Dyer Anti-Lynching BilL Congress
man Madden was presented in a very
fine speech by Mr. Edward H.
Again the chauffeur stepped on tlfe
self-starter in the magnificent limou-
sine conveying inc congressman s
party, and away the machine rolled for
the last event of the day. By the time
the party reached the Appomattox
Club, around 9:30 P. M., the mag
nificent parlors of the club were filled
with the representative men of the
city who belong to the organization.
Here another magnificent staging was
set Amidst great applause the speak
ers' party entered: Congressman
Madden, Edward H. Wright, S. A. T.
Watkins, Alderman DePriest, Alder
man Jackson, Alderman Anderson,
Anderson, David B. Hawley, Charles '
L. Duke and Dr. Carl G. Roberts, the
latter of whom acted as master of
ceremonies and well did his part
After appropriate remarks by Dr.
Roberts in opening the meeting. Presi
dent Watkins was called upon, after
which Mr. Wright, first president of
the club, responded, followed by the
real introduction of the congressman
by Mr. Oscar DePriest. Mr. Madden,
not at all weary after his strenuous-
day among his constituents, was in a
very happy frame of mind and quite
mindful of the ecomiums that were
thrust upon him, all of which he car
ried with easy grace. Realizing he
was addressing the colored men of
Chicago who ."do things," the con
gressman directed his words along
lines of constructive labor in support
of legislation destined to relieve in-'
justice and inhumanity, again calling
attention, as he had on other occa
sions, to the fact that the Dyer Anti
Lynhcing Bill had still another hurdle
After the close of his speech Mr.
Madden was once more the recipient
of the hand of fellowship from his
faithful colored followers, believers
and supporters of Illinois for they
were there from all over, even as far
raway as Blue Island and Evanston.
Among those prominent at the Apr
pomattox Club meeting were: Mor
ris Lewis, Julius F. Taylor, T. L
Prattis, James Woodard James "W
Camp, Joe B. Cram, Nathan CaQ
