ITS IT TO THIS WOMIiX.
Now everybody knows that the!
school facilities for Xegro children
are seriously inadequate in Nashville.
And everybody knows that the pro
s' rib"d course of study is lamenta
bly weak. The Nt gro civic organiza
tions know it, but perfer not to ap
proach the board of education upon
the subject. Our civic organizations
are too busy getting the name of
their presiding officers In the white,
daily papers. Saitl presiding ofTlcers
are too busy making speeches In
which the personal pronoun "I" pre
dominates. We do not know of nny-i
thing ihe above organizations have
done save having a letter box placed i

Dr. Belsaw of Mobile, Ala.,
Champions the Cause of
the Negro Medical Men.
Mobile. Ala. Perhaps one of the I
ablest defences ever put forward by j
any member ot an organization tor
the betterment of the rice to which
thev belong was that which was of
fered by Dr. E. T. Uclsaw, a dentist
of this city, with regard to the Na
itional Medical Association. Dr. Uel
Isaw In a conversation recently said:
The statement was made to me a
few days ago, as it is frequently made
by thoughtless people of all races,
that the Negro Doctors and Dentists
never pursue their studies any long
er after they graduate and as a re
sult they are not the equals of the
white men in the same professions.
I took the speaker to task and
swamped him with the following
argument: In the first place every
progressive Negro Surgeon, Physi
cian, Dentist and Pharmacist sub
scribes for one or more scientific
journals ot their specific branch of
the profession and in this way they
keep abreast of all new thought and
all advanced theories. In"the second
place a liberal proportion of the Ne
gro professional men do post-gradu-
ate study in the leading Medical and 1
Dental Institutions and Hospitals, '
both In America and in Europe. And 1
in tha third place the Negro Doctors
have their local Medical Associations,
they have their State Medical Asso
ciations, they have their Tri-State
Medical Associations and towering
above all of these they have their
National Aieuicai Association wnicn
is composed of the leading Surgeons,
the most progressive Physicians, the
most advanced Dentists and the most
scientific Pharmacists in the country.
Attendance upon a session of the Na
tional Medical Association is equiva
lent to a post-graduate course ot
study in many institutions. The class
of papers that are read at these meet
ings and the facts brought out in the
discussions are sufficient to prepare
him to cope with any situation mot
with in the practice ot his profession,
in fact he becomoa the eaual of any
Medical man anywhere. And the
Surgical operations both, general and
oral, that are performed ut the Na
tional Medical Association meetings
are of the highest type, requiring
rare skill and experience and are
demonstrated by Negro Surgeons who
have the preparation and experience i
anil techiiiii.ie second to no class of
Su: (tL'ur.s .'.i.ieiici.
The next session of the National
Medicul Association will be held in

The men will go home from this

hear, everything that Is new anil
modern in scientific research, in
theory, in practice and that which is
undergoing investigation for the
prevention and treatment of disease
will be perfectly familiar to those
who attend the Philadelphia meet
ing. After pouring this broadside into
the critic. I asked him "Did he still
believe that the Negro doctor was be

his head and walked away.
