Pleads for Liberia.
Mr. Clarke, who made the principal
address, urged that the people of this
country help Liberia in its present
distressful condition due to the war.
"During the past 30i) years, said 'Mr.
Clark, "the science and the learning
of the white man have boen sought
-" , r.iccs on the score oi
their alleged inferiority. It has-taken
100 years of Haiti and Liberia,,
the bl;uk republics, to demonstrate
that the alleged inferiority is a
white man's fiction, assiduously em
ployed to coer up his ruthless
schemes of exploitation.
"The war in Europe proves that,
in all its elements, the black fighter
is a man to be depended upon. Tho
;net',alese, Soudanese and Egyptians
have covered themselves with gtory
on the battlefields of Europe and
never again will we hear from any
responsible source of racial inferiori
ty." The sneaker said that Liberia from
its inception in 1822 took a strong
stand against the slave trade then be
ing carried on on the West Coast ot
Africa and did much in bringing about
Us cessation. Liberia, he said, need
ed help from the people anil govern
ment ot this country, especially since
it had been Ereatly impoverished by
the European war.
