TWO MEN KILLED IN RAID
(By The Associated Negro Press)

lien Iraviek and Gene Iraviek,
two Colored boys, were shot ana
killed by policemen in Hancock
Count, u few nights ago. 'llic men
were killed deleiidlng their sitter

COLORED DOLLS, WHY NOT?
WE HAVE READ ipille a little of the man who decided that his child
should learn to play with Colored dolls. It was an idea pressed in upon
llic same father would never think of deciding to purchase nothing hut
the suue father woidd never think of deciding to purcluuc nothing but
colored clothing, colored animals, or even colored furnishings. Thc col
or perjudice gave rise In ids mind to the propriety of worshipping some
color oilier than-while, exclusively. Hence, the colored doll for his child.
The subtle propaganda of Dm white race lias found rich soil and to
day it is fashionable lo worship the color selected by the Caucasian. The
Colored Races have been victimized 16 a great extent. Almost uni
versally, .we find Ihe picture of Christ painted as white, although He wos
a Jew, and certainly not all Jews are white in color. The predominating
hue for tbe Jew is too dark lo be called white. The Japanese do not
pretend to be anything but yellow, yet he is taught by the Caucasian
that all things pertaining to Christianity, religion and mod
ern civilization is white.
We have become slaves to Ihe while color as applied to human beings.
All kinds of powders, paints and false skins are made to create white im
pressions. We have discarded all oilier colors for the human family,
liver body must be while to be popular. And why?
We are not thus enslaved about inanimate things, Black horses are
considered the most beautiful. Black gowns for ladies are quite the thing
for high occasions. Red featheis for hats, and brown goods for wear all
find a popular demand. Hut when we speak or think of a human being,
we at once swear that he or she must be white.
It is a matter of cultivation. When we learn to prove some other
color, we shall love it devotedly, it is the sign of common sense lo teach
the child lo grow fond of dolls which possess n color like that of
the child. The innocent child at play with her dolls almost instinctly
fondles them as her children, styling herself the mother. Under our
piesenl ssslem of race marriages, it is perfectly normal and rational to
c.pecl the child to resemble the parent, hike mother,
Who knows but what we need to cultivate the colored doll in order
.o insli.l in the mind of the Utile girls that colored ino.thers are as vir
tuous as while mothers, and that colored children are as much Cod's
handiwork ns while children. Suppose we take a few lessons in colors.

OKLAHOMA'S COTTON CROP
Investigations recontly conduct
ed by the Oklahoma Cotton Grow
ers' Asociaion show that 1 A year,
where cotton wa.. sold loen!l yin
pools, tlie growers realized fvom $!
to $25 more per bale than the local
At Blnnchard, in MeCluin Count
the fanners last ear sold in 100
bale pools and received from SIj lo
$23 more than tbe local market
price. Other communities report
ed like success with Ihe plan.
John A. Simpson, Slate president,
Farmers' Union, advises the Asso
ciation that the Union sold cotton
co-operative in n local way at ma
ny places in tlie state last car.
"In every instance," snys Mr.
Simpson, "it has meant a gain of
from ija to S15 per bale. If we can
do tlds much by pooling on a small
scale, what we not expeel when the
Oklahoma Cotton Growers' Asso
ciation pools 300,000 bales'?"
The Association, it is explained,
will grade, class and staple all of
the cotton of all of its members,
selling through its own hired mar
keting specialists, in even running
pools, direct lo the spinhers in ma
ny cases. This would be impossi
ble for an individual or small grout)
of individuals to do. The Associa
tion, however, controlling 300,000
bales under contract to be marketed
through the Association for a peri
od of seven years, can go on the
markets of tlie world with a suf
ficient quantity of cotton of n given
grade, class and saple lo command
the best price possible to obtain.
Officials of the Associaton assert
that the quota of 30,000 members by
May 1, will be reached considerably
before that date,

J. II. Kiland, Grand President of
tne Lolored Association of Rail
way Employees with headquarters
in Memphis, Tcnn., has been a con
stant attendant at the sessions, and
tins prepared a brier on the Colored
trainmen's organization side which
will be presented before the body.
Mr. Eiland's organization has a
membership of more than 4,000,
having been organized less than
four years ago, with a membership
if about 2,000 trainmen.
According to the contentions of
the G. A. R. R., Ihe Brotherhood of
Trainmen, white, has not only ef
fected contracts and agreements
that arc giving them undue advan
tage, but they arc obviously dis
criminatory, und should not be tol
erated longer. According to the
present arrangement, Colored train
men in the South where the ma
jority are employed, are diminish
ing in number constantly, and be
cause of present seiority rules,
tltoso who arc employed find it al
most impossible to advance.
It is maintained that the only or
ganizaion of railway employes rep
resented In the contract with the
government were organizaions com
posed exclusively of whiles, in
which Colored men could not be
come members. The Colored As
sociation is contending for an agree

and protecting all employes in the
