The second half began with Howard

ALLEGE MISTREATMENT OF
COLORED U. S. SOLDIERS
Advancement Association Writes to
Secretary of War
Inquiring into "frequent charges"
of mistreatment of colored members
of the 24th United States Infantry,
stationed at Camp Benning, Georgia,
and asserting that the charges are
such as to warrant Congressional in
vestigation, the National .Association
for the Advancement of Colored Peo
ple. 70 Fifth aenuc. New York, has
nadc public a letter to the Secretary
of War asking for a statement from
the War Department.
The letter asks that the War De
partment state whether it is true that
the colored regiment has been de
prived of its arms in a community
that resents the presence of colored
men in United States uniform;
whether the regiment has been de
prived of its own colonel and placed
in command of one with a bad record
for brutality to .colored soldiers;
whether the War Department coun
tenances advice from commanding of
ficers to colored soldiers that they per
mit themselves to be called "damn
niggers and remember first of all
that tbey are colored.
The Advancement Association's let
ter, which is signed by the Chairman
ox uic uoara ot Directors, Mary
White Ovington, is as follows:
"Nov. 7, 1922.
"The Secretary of War,
"Washington, D. C '
"Frequent reports have tome to this
office that the 24th Infantry, U. S. A.,
consisting of colored troops, some of
them veterans of the Spanish-American
and the World Wars, have been
disarmed, deprived of their command
ing officer, Colonel Schofield, and sta
tioned at Fort Benning, Georgia,
where they are, in virtue of their be
ing without arms, at the mercy of
every brutal Negro-hating white man.
The reports to this office of the
treatment accorded these colored sol
diers arc such as to justify Concres-
sional investigation into the conduct of
Camp Benning, Georgia, by its pres
ent commanding officer. Before plac
ing the matter before Concress. may
we have from the War Department a
reply stating whether:
"1. The 24th Infantry, U. S. A.,
has been stationed at Camp Ben
ning, Georgia, and disarmed?
"2. The 24th Infantry has been
deprived of its commanding offi
cer. Colonel Schofield?

INSTALLATION OF THE NEW
OFFICERS OF THE PHYLLIS
WHEATLEY HOME AND THE
FRAMING OF ITS MORTGAGE.
On Thursday evening the Board of
Directors of the Phyllis Wheatley
Home. 3256 Rhodes avenue, made
some verv important history. On that
evening the mortgage, which had been
running over the home for some
years, was all cleared up and released
by the first and second parlies and it
was neatly framed and adorns the
wall as a living evidence what a num
ber of self-determined women can ac
complish when they put their heads
together and have but one aim or
object in view.
In 1915 the members and officers of
the Phyllis Wheatley Home contract
ed to pay $10,000 for the home which
they now occupy and within that
short length of time they have wiped
out everv dollar of the indebtedness
against-it and it will soon become a
AH the women connected with that
movement deserve to be highly com
mended for the great showing which
they have made.
Hon. A. H. Roberts installed the
new officers and Madam Bertha L.
Hensley pleasantly served as mistress
Mrs. Mattie Johnson-Troung was
chairman of the refreshments com
mittee and the following other ladies
played their several other parts well
in connection with the installation ot
its new officers and the framing of
the cancelled mortgage: Mrs. ClSra
Johnson, president; Miss Lena L.
Perry, secretary-; Mrs. E. L. Davis,
chairman board of directors; and Mrs.
Gertrude Moore. Mrs. F. C Blevms,

"5. Mail from the 24th Infantry
