The 500 membership mark is con

from the standpoint of Negro popu

the belief that the desired results can
be obtained in the time set.
It is said that about one person

aid that Association buildings have
created more problems than they
have solved. The Colored branch of
Nashville is hardly expected to be an
exception to this rule. So it is nec
essary that in the very beginning of
the work that the most responsible
young men of this community shall
begin acquainting themselves with
the various phases of the work. The
rooming apartments should be in the
hands of a capable and wide awake
committee. The same should be true
with the physical department, the ed
ucational department, the religious
work department, the employment
department, the department of social
activities and eating department.
The chairman of the Committee of
Management, along with some other
officials of the Association, consider
this a mighty fine chance for young
men of ability, who really are looking
for an opportunity to render real
service in an organized way to their
fellows, and the feeling of the com
mittee in general is that a large
percentage of the Most capable young
nen will take advantage of it.

generosity of Nature, and protected
by a system of justice which will

His life appears as a dream, for he

the Holy Spirit when I was a' mere

landmark. He is a loyal member
of the Pilgrim Immanuel and this
church should be proud to know that
he is making a start in so worthy a
cause. He will hold revivals begin

body to come and help him. Christ

Gentlemen: I am in receipt of your
telegram inviting me to be preesnt
and to deliver the principal address
at a Mass Meeting to be hchl at the
Coliseum in Chicago on the after
noon of February 12th. 1918, under
the auspices of the Chicago Branch
of the National Security League in
connection with the representatives
and leaders of the patriotic colored
citizens of your community.
As stated to you in the telegraphic
reply which Mr. Emmett J. Scott,
my Special Assistant, forwarded to
you at my instance and request, 1
sincerely wish it were possible for
xne to be present on the occasion
referred to, for I would then have a
splendid opportunity to tell of the
fine spirit with which, the great test
of the quality of America is being
met by the colored people of Our
Country. But the pressure of my
official duties here compels me to
forego this pleasure.
I wish, however. In view of my
enforced absence to Bend, especially
to the Colored Americans of your
community and elsewhere, just a
few words of encouragement and
In our Reserve Officers' Training
Camp, recently held at Fort Des
Moines, Iowa, representative young
colored men presented themselves
for training. They devoted them
selves with zeal to the task and they
are now. imparting to the men under
their charge the military lessons
which they themselves learned. But
more, than this, they are teaching
to their fellowmen the principles for
which America is in war those vital
principles which are the foundation
of the hopes of free people, and the
keystone of National Secunty.
After all, what is this thing we
call "Democracy" and abottt which
we hear so much nowadays? Surely
(t Is no catch-phrase or abstraction.
It is demonstrating too much vitality
for that. It is no social distinction
or privilege of the few, for were it
that, it would not win the hearts of
peoples and make them willing to
We are blessed again with beauti

day and filled his stand so ambitious

to the many who were present. Mrs.

Minnie SIsco who has been sick for

to move to Dyersburg. Many of our
young men of Rives, are expecting to

money at a bank. I have sacrificed
nothing out of current-money income
I have simply increased the money
income of the Government. The bank
which lends me the money does so
by. writing down a 'deposit' to my
credit on its books, which 'deposit'
I transfer to the Government. This
'deposit' provides purchasing power
without providing or releasing any
thing to be purchased. The result
is that Instead of labor and capital
turning from the making of pleasure
cars to the making of motor trucks
they are called upon to make both.
I give the Government my check to
buy the truck, but at the same time
I enter- the market to prevent the
Government from getting it. In short,
the public, by its paper subscrip
tions, appears generous to its Gov
ernnient, but is selfishly refusing to
make the actual sacrifice.
"The principle is a broad onet It
we give up non-essentials to buy
Government securities, we allow the
Government to buy war essentials,
and at the same time release produc
tive energy from the making of non
essentials for us to the making of
essentials for the Government.
"But if we won't make the needed
sacrifice, and perhaps delude our
selves into believing that we don't
have to, or even that we ought not
to do so; that, on principle, we favoi
'business as usual' for ourselves
while expecting business unusual to
be superadded by the Government;
we simply go through the motions of
giving- over billions to the Govern
ment without really giving them up.
Thereupon, the Government, in order
to buy away from us what we will
not otherwise surrender, bids up
"And the rise in prices which
comes about from this sort of lending
is cumulative. As the prices of war
supplies rise the money cost of war
grows and the Government has to
borrow more. Bigger loans by. us
to the Government require bigger
loans to us from the banks. This fur-'
ther expansion of bank credit favors
a further rise of commodity prices,
starting the whole process over again
in a vicious circle.
"But rising commodity prices pre
sent only one of a series of evils
which will follow If we continue far
on the wrong' road. In the wild
scramble to buy the public compet
ing against the Government and the
producer trying to satisfy both
there is increasing difficulty in get
ting supplies. There occurs railway
congestion, car shortage, coal fam
ine (for instance, from using up coal
in nonessential industries and from
using the ars needed to move It)
ami other dislocations.
''The best and quickest way of
finding tho right road the road of
thrift is by reducing consumption
and Increasing production, by re
preslng nonessentials and by organ
izing a redirection of industry. Pres
ident Wilson has well said, 'It is our
duty to protect our people, so far as
we may, against the very s-erlous
hardships and evils which would bo
likely to arise out of the inflation
which would be produced by vast
loans.' And again, 'Now is the time
for America to correct her unpar
donable fault of wastefulness and extravagance.'
'The Importance of all this is em
phasized bv the report of the Fed
eral Reserve , Board Just issued,
which contains a note pf warning on
these subjects. A parliamentary com
mittee has furthermore reached bud-
stantiallv the same conclusions from
a study of the past three and a nair
years' costly experiences in Eng

ther statements on such subjects as
reducing consumptiitj and. increasing
production; repressing nonessentials
and of organizing a redirection of
