The Acting Superintendent of the
Tennessee State Blind School rc-
ceived the resignation of one of its
teachers, in the person of Miss Annie
V. Holman, who has been the efficient
music teacher for two and a half
. years. It Is to be remembered that
Miss' Holman lost her mother very
recently and her father thought It
advisable to come home as house
keeper. The teachers aud pupils
regretted very much to give up Miss

Prosperous life. If she Is as diligent

blind children, we need not fear.

There is almost general agreement
that the community needs of the col
ored people demand that all public
spirited citizens and agencies co-op
erate in meeting these needs. ' The
Public Welfare1 League' is emphasia-'
ing the importance of co-operation in
such constructive service in the pres
ent war time. It is a patriotic nec
essity. It Is second only in ira-
portance to the winning of the war.
The Increased support of this organ-
izatlon is necessary to prevent the
breaking up of families, to prevent
the increase of children appearing
before the Juvenile Court, to resist
new dangers to health from inade
quate food and fuel, to prevent the
lowering of Industrial standards and
to promote sane and 'wholesome rec
reation. The work of the League at
the present time has nine principal
aims. They are all constructive and
Under the direction of the League
and in co-operation with the Nash
ville Juvenile Court "Big Brother
and Big Sister" work Is being con
ducted, especially among handicap
ped boys and girls appearing before
the Children's Court. These chil
dren are being placed under the help
ful influence and guidance of reputa
ble men and women. Friendly visits
have been made to their homes by
the League's protective officer, at
which time counsel has been given
and constructive action has been tak
en. With Increasing approval from
the Court and the city, probationary
oversight of colored children has con
tinued. From October 1, 1916, to
September 30, 1917, the following I

The meeting was presided over by
Dr. C. V. Roman who with quaint
humor and deep eloquence stated the
reason for a better understanding be
tween the citizens of the country and
community for the good of eaoh.
The principal speaker of the even
ing had been announced as Gov. Tom-
C. Rye but owing to illness he was
unable to be present -ana tne aua
ience heard with delight Prof Mimms
of Vanderbilt University. Prof.
Mimms was introduced by Dr. Roman
and called attention to the fact that
none of the persons preceding him
on the program had made mention of
the fact that the day was Lincoln's
Birthday. He eloquently called the
young people's attention to the fact
that the story of Lincoln's life should
be an inspiration to every youth in
needy circumstances, as he was sure
that not a child in the audience had
been born in poverty as deep reach
ing as that which surrounded 'Lin
coln and yet after he had lived a life
that was worthy of example and had
done some of the greatest acts re
corded by history, as he lay dead
from the assassin s bullet, sewara
the man who held him in contempt
when he was elected president stood
at his bier and said that before him
lay one of history's noblest rulers,

Mrs. McDonell told briefly and feel
ingly ot the aim of the Bethlehem

work of the Welfare League. . At the
conclusion ot his speech he eloquent
ly called attention to the fact that
there i must be some common under
standing between the races before
justice and right will reign.

CONFEDERATE G. A. R. RATES.
Associated press dispatches of Feb.
11th from Washington, D. C, seem to
Indicate that the first action on the
part of Director General McAdoo with
regard to consenting to rates for the
railroad companies was when he
authorized that all railroads in the
United States might grant a rate of
one cent per mile for the members
of the United Conferade Veterans
and the Grand Army of the Republic,
together with their families for their
next annual re-union to be held dur
ing the coming summer. The Confed
erate Veterans will hold their re-unlon
at Tulsa, Okla., and it Is generally
conceded that they will have a large
attendance, while the Grand Army
Republic will hold their next meet
ing at Portland, Oregon.
In handing out the statement, it is
understood that some of the leading
brain of the United States felt that
this may he the lust time many of
the old soldiers can re-unite with their
comrades, and it seems particularly
desirable that they shall not be denied
the opportunity while their country
is at war.

What a contrast in the weather to
day to some days ago. For last few
days It has been ideal, and indicates
an early spring. The biggest thing
on last Puuduy was the program at
Wilson's Theatre, beginning at 3:30

compalned to this city by Mr. Richard
Hardy of Chattanooga, president of
Dixie Portland Cement plant, Richard
City, and is also serving the U. S.
government as one of the committee
on sale of war stamps. The play
house was packed with people of both
races and rapt attention was given to
both gentlemen as Capt. Johnson was
followed by Mr. Hardy, who added
"pep" to the., program. The music
rendered by local talent was excep
tionally good as well as appropriate for
the occasion. One was made to enter
tain a feeling of sadness mingled
with hopefulness. Rev. J. T. Martin
waH summoned to Hopkinsville, Ky.,
to officiate at the funeral and burial of
Mrs. Maggie Coleman, wife of Rev.
AkMo Coleman, a popular pastor of
that city and a staunch friend of Dr.
Martin. He loft this city Sunday. at
1 p. ni., for his destination. His de
voted wife, members and friends
generally have expressed themselves
as hoping and praying for his safe
return. God grant that these may not
be in vain. The other boys who pas
sed the IT. S. Examination were
Messrs Bryant Adkins. Walter Phil-'

enjoy immensely the letters of Mrs.
Henry Allen Boyd in the Golden West
as1 well as the article written by her
husband "Want Better Paid Ministers."
The matter of each vary in kind but
vie in quality. Both are literary

and each one present seemed., to en
