THE PRESS ASSOCIATION.
An effort is being made to resusci
tate the press association which, in
the days when the inter-state com
merce laws were unknown and every
newspaper sported railroad passes that
permitted its owners to ride over the
country at their discretion, was the
pride of Negro journalism. Mr. Cy
rus Field Adams, president of the as
sociation, is being called upon to show
cause why the organization has been
allowed to drift into slumberland.
