ROGER WILLIAMS NOTES
f By Mack T. Williams.
Just a little over fifty years ago,
the immortal Lincoln gave to the
world In living letters of blixxl an!
fire, his famous Emancipation Proc
lamation which resulted in the free
dom of four million Negro slaves.

er of Rome, who sat upon her seven
Palatine hills, which ruled the world.
Palatine hills, wielding Hie flaming
sceptre which ruled the world.
Thus can it be said that when
"Freedom from her mountain height
4'nfurled her banners to the air"
it emit that the widening of human
freedom, the chance for actual proof
of manhood, the opportunity to
(tamp its name in lasting imprint
upon the tablet of time by noble
deeds, lofty thoughts, high ideals,
and magnanimity of character, for a
race of people who for over two
hundred years had moaned, and who
hud groaned with, the cross of slav

The commemoration of that bless

swing revenerated the Joy of the
world, and away down the vista of

in the bosom of time rejoiced. The
The Emancipation day was fittingly
carried out ut Roger Williams Uni
versity Monday, at 3 o'clock.
Dr. M. W. Gilbert, D. D pastor of
First Papist Church, lh Avenue. N.,
was the pleasing speaker of the occa
sion. Profound In thought, elegant
in stylcj, the art and skill of the
great Athenian could not have gone
further toward peasing his hearers.
His subject was, "The Unfinished
Task of Lincoln."
Among the things sa'd was, 'That
ro long as there are Jim-Crow laws,
so long as there is segregation, so
Jong as that damnable fire of preju
dice burns upon the altar of men's
hearts; so long will the work of that
famous emancipator be unfinished.''
Dr. Gilbert reminded his audience
that ever since the dawn of civiliza-1
tion, that ever since Lucifer of old j
was hurled from the gilded realms'
cl' those Elyslan heights, there have!
sihvays been problems to be solved, j
Dr. Gilbert said: "The rnUem to be,
so' veil by the Negro are those ol j
overty, character, rental ion and re J
igion." And by aciiuiring these wo j
will, before iiumv moons take our ,

Both are graduates of Roger Wil
liams and are young men to whom
tiie president delights to point to
and say that, "their lives are so
gentle and the leements in them so
mixed that all nature might stand
up and say to the world and say
"they wero men."
The popularity f Miss Baytop as
a teacher and a friend to the stu
dents was evidenced by the many
tokens received Chlretmas morning.
The rhetorlcals of the school are
far more pleasing than of former
years, which shows the improvement
of the school. I
Much is due to the masterly train
