Fort Scott, Kansas, July 25, 1917.
During the past ten days, there has
been much socializing by the society
folks of this ctiy. There has been
numerous visitors from points in other
sections of the country. In truth Fort
Scott has been the center of social
activity. Notable among the visitors
was Miss Bubie Mai McKnight of To
peka Kansas, who was the guest of
Dr. and Mrs. A. L. Hawkins. Miss
Mc. Knight was highly entertained
during her stay. Among the entertain
ments given was an automobile party
in which she was the honored guest.
The party took in Pittsburg, Nevada
and surrounding towns. There is also
visiting in the city Miss Theodosia
Conway, of Little Rock, Arkansas, who
is also the guest of Dr. and Mrs. A.
'L. Hawkins, and Mr. George Mehan
of Little Rock. The latter returned
to the Arkansas Capitol, while Miss
Conway is to remain here until the
school term opens. The home of Dr.

BREAD W,TL RISE ON YEAST
Representative Longworth Presents
Statement from Large Manufac
turer. Washington. D. C, July 31. If the
breweries of the country are closed
down, in accordance with provisions
of the Food Control Bill as it passed
U-e House, it will increase the price I
of bread. Representative Nicholas
Longworth told the House of Repre-
i-oniutivos. Mr. Longworth said he
had made a careful study of the ques
tion, and was convinced that l.rohibi
lion of beer manufacture would re
sult in a shortage of not I(!'ss than
forty per cent in the supply of yeast
in the country.
In support of his statement Mr
Longworth had printed in the Record
a statement from George W. Lester,
vice president, of the Flelshinann
Company, that "the sudden and unad
justed application of prohibition
would result in insufficiency of yeast
in our cities for a considerable period
of time, in some places so extreme as
to make it impossible for the bakers
to supply their normal trade."
"To sum up briefly," continued Mr
Longworth, "the situation seems to be
indisputably this: Malt rprouts under
modern processes of yeast making are
nn absolute necessity, forming as they
do one-third of the contents of the
mph from which yeast is developed.
Mr. Longworth said that nersonallv
he was opposed to the prohibition of
manufacturing beer for other reasons
one because It reduced revenues, an'1
another because if .d-ep'ived the tioor
mnn of his drink.
"No matter wha one'? view nnv

Education for the Negroes is shown
as affecting the entire country, North
The report on Negro Education was
prepared after four years of first
hand study, made by Dr. Thomas Jesse
Jone3, and a crops of assistants in
various fields of education, working
under the direction of Dr. P. P. Clax

The study was made possible through
the cooperation of the Phelps-Stokes

The first volume of the report dis

Negro, and includes such topics as:
Public facilities for Negro education;
Industrial education; agricultural and
rural education; secondary education;
for Negroes; college and professional
Ov uoat ion ; buildings and grounds;
finances; history of Negro education.
Volume II comprises descriptions of
more than Toil schools visited by
the Bureau's agents, arranged by
States and counties. It is believed
that the specific facts given in connec

number of individuals and organiza

schools, making it possible to discrim

In his report Dr. Jones says:
"No racial group in the United
States offers so many problems of
economic and social adjustment as the
10,000,000 Negroes. Negroes from al-
nost a third of the total population of
the- Southern States. In Mississippi
and South Carolina, they constitute
over half the population; and in the
'black belt countries, the proportion
ranges from 50 to 90 per cent. The
significance of such a concentration
is difficult to e'xplain to those not fami
liar with communities composed of
people who differ widely not only in
economic and educational status but
also in ethnic type.
"In the 50 years since freedom was
decreed, Negro illiteracy has decreased
from over 90 per cent to 30 per cent;
nearly 1,000,000 colored men are now
farmers of varying degrees of inde
pendence; a quarter ot a million own
their own farms and the total acreage
of land owned by Negroes aggregates
20,000,000 acres of fertile soil. These
facts are indiputable evidence not only
that the colored people are capable of
progress but also that thoir white
neighbors have looked with favor upon
their struggles and In many instances
have actually given substantial aid to
As the Negroes are the primary ele
ment that give rise to the problem,
so are they becoming more and more
an important factor In its solution.
Their contribution includes both an in
creasing financial support and an
ever larger proportion of the teach
ing force. They contribute not only a
goodly share of the taxes for their pub
lic schools, but also a considerable sum
toward the private schools. Further
more, the colored people give eensider
able sums to extend the terms of the'
public schools. It is probable' that
their total gifts aggregate $500,000 an
ually over and above their share ot
the public taxes.
" Next to the Negroes, the1 group
most concered in this problem are' the
20,500,000 white people of the South.
No plan for the improvement of the
colored group is well considered ' that
does not" contemplate the co-operation
of the white group.
"Though the Northern
The conclusion drawn by the
are in brief as follows: !
( 1 ) That there is a pressingneed for
increased public school facilities for
Negroes in the South.
(2) That the aid of philanthropy
should bo continued with the present
liberality until the South has attained
to a belter economic condition.
(S) That all education should stress,
first, the development of character, in
cluding the simple but fundamental
virtues of cleanliness, order, persever
ance, and the qualities essential to
the home, and second, adaptation to the
needs of the pupil and the community:
(4) That supervision of both public
and private educational efforts should
be increased, so that all agencies may
bo correlated with each other, sound
business methods established, organ!
zation of work suited to Income and

ducted with economy and good taste.
