One of the most---impressive . ser-,
vices ever held In the Mt. Olive Bap
tist Church was tlie Teacher .Train
ing graduating exercises, under 'tlic i
supervision of the Rev. Sharp, held ;
in -the auditorium of tne above named
church, on last Sunday afternoon.
Despite the fact that other meeting
were teing held in various parts of j
the city tha spacious auditorium was
about' filled' " 1 - ''
"The" "exercises Vere' sublimely im
prMsUre.Rev'. Sharp has the ability
Jo make anything with which he is
connected very, substantially interest
ing. Musio 7was ; furnished by . the
fcholr "and it was very ftting that the
.Training Service exercises should be
fci by singing an anther written and
jtomposed by Negroes. Scripture ' les
ion was read by Rev. H. M. Burns,
pastor of Tabernacle Baptist Church.
Prayer was offered by Rev. J. L.Hard
Jng paston 3rd Ave Baptist Church.
A duet was very beautifully rendered
by Mrs. G. P.; Baker and Miss Rebec
ca Covington.' A' representative of
the Normal Class in the person of
Mrs. J. L. Harding' delivered au ad
cress that 'was ! well recived. Mrs.
Cora Jordan White represented , the
Advanced Class. . , '.'
( In one of the. most wholesome and
Impressive addresses ever rendered,
Dr. R.1 H. Boyd, Secretary of the Na
tional Baptist Publishing Board ; and
founder of the Teacher Training Ser
vice, presented the diplomas; ' It is
i noticeable fact that Dr. Boyd always
makes his strongest addresses when
lie is most deeply -moved. , His, words
ivere gems of inspiration and worth
and every member in, the c18rs "was
!;lad to lie able to receive their dl
ihmaa that - sent.. them forth qualified

reat and noble man who has proven

I After Dr. Boyd's address the Rev.
Mr... Sharp, presented the . speaker pi
-the evening in the person of the Rev.
Dobbins connected wlih the Baptif-t
Sunday School Board. . Never in the
annals of religious work among Baptists-have
we listened to such a gem
of literary art ns was brought us by
this distinguished gentleman.'-' One
point that was brought out in his ad
Cress will long he remembered. Ho
stated- that he could no more make
the literature for tha Negro than he
could make it for the Indian, the Chi
nese or the Japanese. He made God's
word a thing of beauty, worthy ' of
much and intelligent study. At the
close of his remarks we felt as if the
heavens had opend and we had re
reived a message just ! from the
throne.-, The Class sang "Steal Away
to Jesus" and Dr. Boyd asked that
the congregation join in the - chorus
and so readily did they respond and,
to convincing in its sincerity and so
sweet in its volume wus the melody
that Issued from the throats of these
God's afflicted people that we ceased
to wonder that God has been so good
to us, when we know that he cannot
but be 'reached and must listen when
we pour out our souls to him in song.
f.Dr. W.1S, Ellington brought U9 a
message such as only can come from
Mm. He advocated as he always ad
vocates a careful and persistent study
Of God's word as the salvation of this
and any other people.

1. Because it grows out of a ueces
city realized by leaders of the church
of God. It is not simply by young
people, for young people; it le the
leaders In a church doing what Heeds
to be done for the young people. ;
2. Because it is educational the
need is for equipped workers to study
the Bible and Baptist doctrine besides
a wide and accurate view of mission
fields and the missionaries.
iS.' Because it is Rpirltunt." Tho
whole aim of the B. Y. P. U. is to
train and develop the minds. ' Every
line is an index finger pointing to the
Bible. - It aims to form the habit' of
daily Bible study so that we may un-
aersiana tne Scriptures. - ; ;
4, Because it is a troublesome mat
ter.:: Children give trouble to the
parent, but what parent would give
up the child because It Is some trou
ble? Truining i8 never an easy mat
ter. It takes wisdom, patience, com
mon sense and genuine religion, but
it pays, it will be a eorry day for
a church when it has no young: Peo
ple's problem to . worry- over.-
5. Because it is social. Young ceo-
pleTiro so constituted as to need this
and they will"Jiave it. That pastor
and church are wise that direct this
in the future to the good of the
' 6. Because it keeps young people
from drifting. Why do young church
members drift? Frequently because
the church offers them nothing of
activity or interest; provides nothing
to counteract worldly temptations in
many churches, thus there is no ef
fort to anchor them. The B. Y. P.
U. bids and offers them attractions
that satisfy and hold. ?
7. Because young people are the
only material out of which -old peo
ple are made. Note the-signs of the
times. Today young people do not
have to wait forty years to be heard
from. They can bring things to pass
S. Because it goes down deep
enough, to get the real man. There
is one thing better than saving a
soul saving a soul plus a life of
service. We t build for ' eternity,
when we gain a child's heart and.
life for God. The conversion of a
child means more to the kingdom of
God than that of a reprobate.
., "9. .It Is practical. It works. It
does what the church needs equips
members for service. So it Is a rival
of the church no more than the head
is of the eyes. It Is the church dot
ing work of the highest type. , i
10. The result is efficiency. The
church, needs strong members to help
foster the cause of Christ. A host of
weak Christians who can't do any
thing for the Lord. The Lord's sol
diers, but unable to handle a gun.
The Lord's cavalry, but unable to
ride a horse. The Lord's hallelujah
chorus, but unable to raise a tune, be
cause, we. need to be trained."' "'

'li AN EYE-OPENER. "" '
Some things happen . sometimes to
open our,- eyes,' make us think, and
we are forced to think whether we
would or not. The Intrigue that Ger
many attempted with Mexico and
Japan Is indeed an eye-opener, if
the public press is to be credited and
ogvernmental statement reagrded,
men Germany attempted to form an
alliance with Mexico and Japan
for the invasion of the United
States. There is something racial
appeared in that, for it is to be re
membered, that Japan and Mexico
are really of a different race variety
to that of the people cf the United I
States. The people cf the United 1
States ar9 what might be "called'
genuine Caucasians, while the people I
of Japan and Mexico cannot possibly
lay claim to Buch a distinction. They
belong to the yellow people, especial
ly does Japan, while Mexico would
be possibly classed among the red
people, a mixture of the red and tlte
Spanish, making a people that does
not class with the Caucasian, In fact,
both people could be classed as the
darker people, and hence to array
Mexico and Japan against the United
States would be arraying one race of
people against another, hence the
racial question would be an equation
in the conflict The invasion was to
come through Mexico into the United
States. Germany, of course, was to
do most of the financiering of the
project while the darker people were
to do the fighting, aided by the Ger
man submarines, but the question
where it becomes an eye-opener ie,
that two nations composed of two
race varieties distinct In their race
variety to the dominant peoplo of tbo
United States, and the fact that the
United States 13 inhabited by two dis
tinct race varieties, the question might
come up which race variety would
the colored race variety of the United
States side with. Would it take sides
with the darker races of the world
in . the conflict composed of Mexican
and Japanese as against the white
or. Caucasian race, or would it lino
up with the white or Caucasian race
as against the , blacker . races? , Ol'
course there can be no time for specu
lation. In the time of war, or with
our country threatened with war, for
we are all Americans, and ill this
American . struggle would struggle
tor American supremacy, but there
is much room In this for thought
and speculation. . It would be well
l.-ossibly that the government of the
United States would think along this
line. It would possibly And the ne
