BIRTH OF A RACE SENARIO
WRITERS CONFER AT
Tuskegee Institute, Ala., July 21
Mr. George Frederic Wheeler who is
collaborating with Emmett J. Scott of
the Tuskegee Institute in writing the
scenario for the master photoplay.
'The Birth of A Race," has held an
Important series of conferences here
during the past week, working over
the vast amount of material which
they have assembled during the past
eighteen months. This material is
being put into the form of a story
which will be ready for the film
makers by the last of September.
Prior to his visit here, Mr. Wheeler
visited Memphis, Mound Bayou, Mobile
and Atlanta. He has been most cor
dially received everywhere he went
and reports that every opportunity ,
na3 been given him to study racial
conditions as they obtain in the South.
- Everyone." says Mr. Wheeler, "seems1
to know of the photoplay and I am j
sure that the picture will have a great
run in the South as well as the other j lnK i)oar(i nnd Miss Burroughs is sec

nearly enough of the capital stock had
been sold to produce a picture, but that
it is now necessary to push the sales

ers and workers here.
In describing some of the scenes of
the Birth of a Race. Mr. Wheeler stated
that it will cost $43.noo alone to creative Honorable Hoscie Conklin Sim
one of the temples which will be shown
on the screen for onlv about five
minutes. This will be a complete re
production of one of the old Egyptian
temples created in the days of early
Negro civilization, thousands ot years
before the birth of Christ. Mr. Wheel
er has spent many months of research,
unearthing and verifying facts cover
ing early Negro civilization. Another
scene which he describes will require
twelve thousand people, all of whom
will wear specially made costumes.
Mr. Wheeler left here Tuesday for
Chicago where the home office of the
Birth Qf a Race Photop,ay Corpora
tion is located in the National Life
Building. He planned to stop over
in Montgomery, "the cradle of the
Confederacy," Birmingham, and Nash

has. carried it (the publishing house)
away on his shoulders and now seeks
to hand It down ot his children."
First, he might be properly styled
"Booker the Meddlesome" for think
of it, one public man standing up in
public making an expression about
another public man like that, that all
were honest but Boyd. How doe3 he
know? There is no greater di3grace
that can come to a man than the dis
grace that he can heap upon hiuibclf,
and no man heaps a greater disgrace
upon himself than the disgrace ot ly
ing, to become a pffbllc scandler, and
especially to scandalize those ot noble
rarts. He has carried It away on his
shoulders, said the villifying editor,
and seeks now to hand It down to his
children, referring to the Publishing
House. Not only does he prove him
Keif a vlllifier, but he demonstrates
that he himself and those who enter
ed into the publishing house to begin
with, and those who have been asso
ciated with the publishing house, in
cluding the entire Morris ring of
which he himself forms a little niche,
were a set of the biggest fools that
ever saw the moon, to let any man
In broad open day time walk off with
a publishing house on his shoulders
demonstrates that they were an ig
norant gang that ought to hush. It
demonstrates also In that respect that
Boyd Is a Sampson, for that is the
way Sampson removed the gateposts
he carried them away on his shlulders
while his enemies slept. It is not the
goodness of the edito. of the Van
guard that he did not walk oft with
the .Arkansas Baptist College on his
shoulders, but the editor of the Peo
ple's Defender saw him trying to
shoulder it, and made him put 11
down. We suppose that's the why
that be Is In such a rage. The ee!
of the people are upon him and won't!
let him alk off with the Arkansas
Baptist College, but possibly the
meanest fling that he attempts is the
flinj? at the children of this genius.
Well, beyond a doubt, if the editor of
the People's Defender were Boyd,
and bad walked off in broad-open day
light, with everybody looking at me
wtth a publishing house on my shoul
ders, before the living Gods, 1 would
give it to my children. But how wick-
e8Declallv when everv evi
ed that ,9' especially nen every evj.
stop with his wickedness there,
takes a fling at Miss Burroughs, and
asks "who built the ark," and com
pares it to the Publishing Hoube,
and modestly suggests from his arti
cle that the Baptists have found an
other thlet In Miss Burroughs simply
because that young woman with
ability, forethought and industry and
publlo honor and integrity has been
sufficiently Influential as to gather
about her enough people and means
to erect a great school on Lincoln
Heights, Washington, D. C, and now
because she and her Board will not
stand for it to be pillaged and wreck
ed and ransacked by a lot of grafters
and men who have not put forward
single effort to establish It, he, we
say, accuses her In bo many words of
being a thief.
Wonder why he does not build up
something instead of running around
trying to tear down what other men
and women have built up. Neither
Dr. Boyd nor Miss Burroughs are
found running around the country
trying to tear up the Arkansas Bap
tist College which he claims to have
built and been the genius of, and
then besides that, he claims to be one
of the secretarles of the Home MIs-
f ion Board- TMnk of one eecrstaiy
gouging anu nosing ana irjmg to sur
up strife against other secretaries, for

Boyd. The grafters and schemers

mons Speaks in Little Rock, Ark.
During the Triennial Session of
the Mosaic Templars of America held
In the city of Little Rock many noted
orators addressed the assembly,
none however, more noted than Ros-
coe Conkling Simmons, who, as v.eknowa wha they wm amount t0 if
understand It, is a nepnew oi ine late
.great industrial father, Booker T.
Washington, and upon whom many
persons attempt to place the toga of
Mr. Washington as the orator and
speaker of the Negro race. Much of
the speech of Mr. Simmons was bril
liant and admirable, hut if he Is quot-
ed correctly by the daily press, one!0n,i life of every Baptist, for out of
expression or one sentence did for his I the Institution must come many ot

Mr. Simmons is quoted as saving,;
referring to the white man; Mr Sim-1
mons said. "Let the American Negro ?en stricken race to carry ail pro
, , ., iv,i' fessions .along which was necessary
learn lessons in progress from this for a complete development of our
teacher of the world" and referring
to himself and his race he said, "And
since my debt of gratitude to him for
all the benefits of freedom can hardly
be paid, I must serve him in return."
If Mr. Simmons Is correctly quoted,
he doubtless forgot himself, or decid
ed to play wondrfully to the gallery
at this period of his speech. That
part of the sentence that said, "Let
th Nnirrn leam lessons of Droeress
from this world teacher is an aomi-
rable thought and one that meets all
of our approval, but when he said or
intimated that he and his people must

because he feels himself under a debt
of lasting-.gratitude for what he has
received, Is so obnoxious and naut,e-
,i . x xt ,i ,kii,
ating to thinking Negroes and think -
Ing men all over the country until
the editor of the People's Defender
cannot resist the temptation to say,
Tf ,i,., --a nin'
nay. It is true that we are under,
lasting obligations to the white man
for the advantages of civilization J
and religious thought and culture of
every kind, but we hold that the
white man is under equal obligation
to the Negro for what he hath re
ceived from him, for while the Negro
has received the culture and refine
ment of the white man, the white
man has received the brawn and mus
cle and its wage from the Negro, and
therefore one is under as much obli
gation as the other. This old talk of
having to serve the .white man be
cause of our liberty and freedom and
because of the benefits we receive by
reasons of the civil war and by rea
sons of contact with the white man's !
civilization, is jglvlng the white man
himself the wrong idea; it's making
him believe that the Neero oueht to
serve him eternally, and that is, be hi
foot mat, be his slave, because of such
benefit, but not so; the debt of grati
tude that the Negro owes the white
man for the benefits of his civiliza
tion Is squared up with by the
debt of gratitude that the white man
owes to the Negro for the benefits
he received s result of the Ne-
m's labor in this country, for while i
the whit man has made the Negro a
civil being, the Negro has made him
a millionaire, thus they even up. Mr.
Simmons is wrong, and It is this Idea
that is keeping the white man full of
prejudice toward the Negro; it la this
idea that is keeping him from giving
the Negro his Justice, his rights, be
cause he feels the Negro is under
eternal obligations to him for what he
has done for the Negro, he never
once thinks of what the Negro has
done for him. In making publlo
speeches, men should be exceedingly
careful lest they act one-sidedly and
give somebody a club with which to
crack the head of himself and his
race. The Negro has no more right
to serve the white man than the white
man has to serve him. They both
have a right to serve each other, as
citizens of one common country, as
brothers of one common religion, as
patriots and freemen of one-common
government. No man has a right to
serve another man In the sense that
another man Is superior to him, only
as his ability, his civilization, his
Christianity makes him superior, and
even then he should not be superior
In his freedom, in his rights to act,
in bis rights to be. The Negro 4ias
no right to serve the white man in
the sense that he shoild deny cny
ot his God-given privileges and rights
as a citizen. They should co-operate
one with the other, and all as free
WHAT HAS BEEN GAINED BY
NATIONAL BAPTIST CONVEN
TION IN THE PURCHASE OF
THE BOSCOBEL THEOLOGICAL
COLLEGE AND SEMINARY AT
J. P. Robinson.
If there Is any time in the life of
the National Baptist Convention of
the United States, unincorporated,
should be proud and eager to work
for a great cause. It Is now. Since
the purchase of these buildings and
campus for the theological school,
there should be springing up in the
breast of every one of our denomina
tion, new love for a great cause
which shall read down to the honor
and pride of the denomination and
I say this because whatever is
good for the denomination Is good
for the race, whatever uplifts one
Negro upon the American Continent
uplifts the whole race, and whatever
Is upbuilding to one Negro is also
upbuilding to all, for it is well known
that upon the surface largely, the
whole race is looked upon as one in
the outside world. This Is an op
portunity for the whole race, whether
denominational or otherwise, to the
advancement of the race and thus
give to themselves a great name by
supporting this worthy enterprise.
We have thousands of-young minis
ters as well as old ministers
who have not had the opportuni
ty of studying in a Theological
school. Now the opportunity is open
ed for the first time for them to im-
prove themselves in the Gospel min
istry. Some of the strongest minds
In our denomination are yet unde-
given a chance. This is the first
Theological school to be owned and
controlled entirely by the Negro Bap
tist denomination, and we should lay
aside all petty Jealousies and put our
shoulders to the wheel, and push
forward this Institution to a great
success and make it what it should
and ought to be. The joy of such an
enterprise should ring into the heart
nreoaratorv stage to teach the men
an(j WOmen of a rising generation.
The burden was too hard tor a bur-
race, so the ministry was left out to

I admit that many of our ministers
have received Theological training.
That is true of the writer, as well as
many others. Had it not been for
the generosity of the colleges built
by the white people for the colored,
and in these Institutions, chairs of
Theology were placed to assist col
ored ministers in preparing for the
ministry, we would have been far
short of great leaders; but now the
gWen ug an opportunity t0 begin the
work aiong tne ab0ve said lines for
ourselves. This we must accept and
be thankful for the gift that the Lord
has made for he has indeed given us
fln opportun,ty t0 work and ghow
ourselves worthy of what he has
given us. It will now remain to be
seen whether we will go forth in the
name of our Master and do this work

until our ministry is aroused to the
necessity ot an educated ministry.
Never in the history of our racial
fe have we great n(fed for gane menf
men ot thought, men of learning,
men of Industry, men who are willing
to lay their lives upon the altar, for

denomination and race. Such an In
stitution as we have is calculated to
bring to the denomination such hon-
I or and glory as has been brought by
the great National Baptist Publish
ing House, which has given to the
race great commercial rating. Such an
Institution will give to us standing
in the religious world by the great
masses of the best thinking people;
and it will cause our children to call
us blessed In our graves.
In the next place we will gain In
fluence In the world of letters and we
will put into the columns of the rate
great assets of material wealth and
it will be seen that the men who
lived today did not live for naught.
In order to conduct this work all
know that it will take money and we
must, at all hazards furnish the
means to do the things that we
should do. Let us not spend our
lives In talking and bemoaning others
because all of that is simply lost
time for every man will be remember
ed by what he has done. The harvest
Is great but the laborers are few.
Let us lay aside every weight and
sin that so easily beset us, and let
us run this race with patience, look
ing to Jesus ChrlBt as the author and
finisher ot our faith.

NEQSO BAPTISTS MEET.
DR. GAYLES DELIVERS ODDRESS
OF IMPORTANCE AT SHELBY
' Shelby. Miss., July 17. The Gen
eral Missionary Progressive Baptist
State Convention ot Mississippi open
ed here at 12 o'clock yesterday in
the Mount Beulah Church, ot which
Rev. J. M. Williamson is pastor. The
delegattion is ot such proportions
thatother quarters will be sought tor
the holding ot the meeting. The In
troductory sermon was delivered by
Dr. F. H. Cook, one of the most prom
inent Negroes of the race. He urged
that the lives ot his hearers should
be clean and declared that there were
opportunities in the southland and
deplored conditions that made the ex
odus possible. Dr. G. W. Gayles, the
president, has for many years oc
cupied many prominent positions.
For years he represented Bolivar
County in the Senate ot Mississippi,
and during his address referred to
ex-United States Senator, L. Q. C.
Lamar as a model statesman, after
whom many of the present statesmen
might well take lessons. Said he:
"God lead the Israelites into the land
ot promise, and as a race I believe the
dawn la just ahead." Many commit
tees were appointed and business of a
routine nature transacted. Dr. Ed
ward P. Jones of VIcksburg, Miss.,
president of the National Baptist
Convention, was greeted with ap
is a new day. The world is marching
plause when he arose and said: "This
forward as never before, and we are
standing upon the threshold of the
greatest civilization the world has
ever seen, and we must stand up and
be counted. Our forefathers in every
emergency of American history in
delibly left their imprint, and while
our rights are denied us in a measure,
this is not the time to do other than
to be patriotic. The southern white
man is not our enemy, and we are his
best friends, and he must know that
better opportunities for the educa
tion of our children Is essential and
that lynch law must give way to
legal authority. We make no plea
for special privileges or social
equality, but we are demanding an
opportunity to prove ourselves
worthy of (he civilization of today.
We want a man's chance; to ask
more would be foolhardy, to ask less
would be unmanly. I hope this conven
tion will send a delegation to Jack
son to petition the Legislature to
establish a reformatory where chil
dren of tender age may be taught
and not sent to convict farms to be
come hardened criminals." Resolu
tions were immediately offered by
Dr. G. W. Alexander of VIcksburg,
and the following committee was
elected: Revs, Edward P. Jones,
VIcksburg, Miss; J. L. Williamson,
Shelby; G. W. Gayles, Greenville; C.
H. Booker, Greenville; E. T. R. Fox,
Arcadia; B. C. McCoy, VIcksburg; A.
W. Looney, Shelby and C. G. Glenn.
Many applications were filed before
the committee on time and place in- i
viting the convention to hold its next
session. Drs. C. H. Clark and R. H.
Boyd, two ot the" most prominent Ne
groes ot the United States, are ex
pected to address the convention on
Thursday evening. It is thought the
convention will financially assist the
National Theological and Training
Seminary which is to be opened at
Nashville In November.

Haven't yon often wished for medi
cine to reduce your fleshT Something
that does pot require dieting or calis
thenics? Well, right here you hare It
in 5 grain tassco tablets, which you
may secure at any drug store. They
are pleasant to take, perfectly 'harm
less and cause no restrictions of
habit or eating, and reduce the flesh,
little by little, until you are down to
the number of pounds you wish to
weigh. Too much flesh is undesirable,
as most quite stout people will readily
admit, and it detracts from one's good
appearance; makes one clumsy and
short of breath. .
There isn't any reason why anyone
should be too stout, when there's this
much-tried perfectly satisfactory reme
dy at any drug store. Tassco tablets
(don't forget the name) are' recom
mended by physicians and are guar
anteed to be perfectly harmless. Re
fuse substitutes, if you can not come
to our store, we will mail tassco to you.
