test the constitutionality of the act of
the San Francisco School Board In ex
cluding Japanese from the public
schools. So there Is to be a lively
time in the courts, with the govenr
meat of Japan behind its subjects to
find the trend of opinion and the
sentiment both In the United States
and abroad. The following Is given
from the Literary Digest of January
"The people of California are ac
cused of "narrow-minded prejudice
and uncultured conceit" by the Jehoya
QhlTtihnn iTnL-vni fnr norclctinc in
Shimbun (Tokyo), for persisting In
their attitude of hostility toward the
Japanese after the President has tak
en his stand in favor of equality of
treatment. The Japanese press quiet
ed down considerably after the Presi
dent's ringing declarations in his mes
sage, but as nothing has seemed to
come of it, they are again beginning
to show signs of restlessness. Thus
the Nippon (Tokyo) remarks:
" 'We must say that we regard the
statement made by Viscount Aoki,
Japanese Ambassador at Washington,
to the effect that the Japanese Indig
nation with the Californians has sub
sided, os premature. Th indignation
of the Japanese has not yet ceased.
On the contrary, the statements re
ported to have been made by Mr. Mil
ler, 'Senator Hayes, and some others
have greatly incensed the Japanese.
The nation Is remaining tranquil be
cause it has confidence in the ability
of the President to end the trouble,
but if it becomes clear that the State
of California will not obey the Presi
dent, the indignation of the Japanese
will not fail to reassert itself with
"A writer in The Japan Weekly
Mail (Yokohama) tells In the follow
Ing paragraphs why the Japanese feel
aggrieved, and suggests a way out of
" 'It is difficult for the Japanese peo
pie to see why a special regulation
should be directed toward their chil
dien. To them It seems that any em
barrassment growing out of the con
gestion referred to might have been
relieved by certain general regula
tions which would have borne eyual
ly upon all. No thoughtful Japanese
could fail to approve of a rule which
forbade adults or adolescents attend-
ing the lower grades of - the public
schools. Such a rule would be founded
on practical universal experience
Neither would they object to the in
troduction of a language test for all
applicants for admission to the pub-
lie schools. A certain standard of ef
ficiency in the use of the English lan
guage might very wisely be estab
lished, the attainment of which should
be essential to admission to any but

to the segregation of any and all pu
pils who might ehow themselves mor
" 'If the Japanese community suffer
more than others from the strict en
forcement', of regulations framed in
the spirit indicated, no complaint
would be heard from any responsible
persons, certainly not against the reg
ulations themselves, and an interna
tional Question could not arise. The
central point in the Japanese com
plaint Is, not that certain of their
countrymen have suffered through
meir cniiaren, but mat tney nave sui-

in direct violation of a clause In the
existing treaty which says, In effect,
that they shall not be made the ob
jects of special legislation or of spe
cial administrative treatment; for
that is what the most highly favored
nation clause In the treaties means,
if it means anything. And this is just
the question at issue. 'Does the trea
ty afford any protection whatever
from local prejudice?' It is natural
that the Japanese of all classes should
wish to have that question an-

Assistant Secretary of the National
Baptist Publishing Board
Dear Sir: Yours to hand and the
contents noted. In reply I want to
thank you for the extra copies of the
Xashville Globe, as they afforded me
-o much pleasure. I feel as if I were
n Nashville when I read the Globe.
It is a clean and well-edited sheet of
no minor importance to the people of
Nashville and to the race as well. I
predict for the Globe a wide field of
usefulness which its wide-awake pro
moters are not unmindful. Believe
ne, the day is on that our young men
must come to the rescue of the race
with such helpful instruments of re-

NASHVILLIANS IN EASTERN
An excellent likeness of four of the
representative men of push, who ac-
knowledge Nashville as home and who
contribute no little to make their
home a good one, was brought out in
last week's (Jan. 19) issue of the
Afro-American Ledger. They were
Bishop Evans Tyree. of the A. M. E.
Church, who is an able divine; Dr. R.
H. Voorhies, one of the leading dent
ists of the city; Dr. R. F. Boyd, of
whom all of Tennessee is proud, and
Henry Allen Boyd, the Assistant Sec
retary of the Baptist Publishing Board,
They were sent In by the correspond
ent of the Ledger, who writes under

NASHVILLE'S NEW STUDIO.
Sexton and Hynes Have Opened It In
the Pythian Temple.
The new studio that has just been
opened in the Pythian Temple, at 428
Fifth avenue, North, will add no little
to Nashville as a city where art is
found in abundance. This city, of
more than a hundred thousand in
habitants, in which can be found
about 40,0.0 Negroes, can certainly
support two studios and art galleries
Soxton & Hynes is the name of the
new firm which has conceived the
idea of running this new place on
- modern an(j up-to-date lines. Mr.
Albert Setxon of the firm is one of the
