LACK OF SCHOOL FACILITIES.
The most flagrant disregard of
the Necro's welfare and rights as a
taxraying citizen is the refusal to
provide, reasonably adequate facili
ties for the education of Neero
youth. The public schools in South
Carolina, except In some towns and
cities, are a pretense and a farce.
There is absolutely no supervision
except in some towns and cities,
and in most of these supervision is
merely perfunctory. The Negro
rural school teacher is the poorest
naid and any class of workers except
female domestics. Their schools
average about three months in
lencrth of term at an average salary
of about $18.00 per month for each
teacher. This condition is driving
the most competent teacher out of
the sohool room into other occupa
tions and leaving the work to be
done by young ' and Inexperienced
female teachers and others for the
most part lncompeatent Spl&ndid
edifices, beautiful and complete in
design and equipment are built for
white children, who are conceyed
to and from school at the public
expense; night schools are estab

taxes paid by all, while Negro
schools are still conducted in shacks

to exposure in severe weather
hardly less dangerous to health, or
more comfortable than in the open
air; hence, Negro schools from year
to year, are retrograding instead of
improving, and thousands of Ne
groes have deserted the farms and
taken residence in the cities in order
to give their children the advant
age of better BChool facilities, while
a great many board their children
in the cities during school term for
the same reason, frequently crowd
ing out children living in the cities,
every Negro school, city or country
being usually crowded beyond the
capacity of the school building and
of the teachers to do efficient work
Wliien it is considered that the
Negroes of South Carolina pay into
the treasury for educational pur

the education of their children, it

That the Negro has endurel all
the harsh and galling conditions
imposed upon him and remained in
the South, contributing with appar
ent cheerfulness and with marvel
ous willingness, his due share of
toil and labor, and more than his
share of sacrifice in the upbuilding
of this great Southern country, was
because there 'was no market for
his labor, no haven of refuge where
opportunity, a man's chance, and
real freedom beckoned him to come.
And now, after fifty years of
hopir,T against hope, the gates of
the labor market have opened to
him In every section of our com
mon country, and thecall, the en
ticing lure is not alone high wages,
but opportunity, a man's chance
ajid real freedom.
In my opinion, the South is the
place where the Negro can best
reach his heighest development, if
living can be made tolerable and
like all other citizens ne can be
brought under the protection of-the
laws of the states in which he re
sides and he Is granted the right of
sharing the benefits proceeding
from the laws.
But if the Southern white people
remain blind to the fact or refuse
