AFTER LINGERING ILLNESS.
Newt has Just reached this office
that William Goff Kennedy departed
this life and crossed the Great Dl
rjde, Thursday, March 14th. at 11:00
a. m. Mr. Kennedy was perhaps
one of the best and most widely
known actors, claiming Nashville as
his home. He was born and reared
In Nashville and spent the earlier
days in the city f ohis birth. At a
very young age he showed - rare
ability and talent for stage work,
and at the age of sixteen made his
Initial bow before the footlights. He
spent more than 23 years of con
tinued service on the stage, having
been connected and travelling with
some of the best companies in Amer
ica. He was one of the first Negro
performers to explore the far West,
travelling extensively through Wyo
ming, Arizona, the Detokas, extend
ing as far as Utah, coming bucle
through New Mexico. He was known

as well in Texas. Oklahoma and Kan
sas ns he was in tin cp glades of
Florida, possessing, as he diil, a very
rare, rich and melodious baritone
voice, lie was at once a decided
success and it was said of him in
the eariy days of his career, that
the stage had produced none better.
Not only had Mr. Kennedy rare
ability as a performer, but he showed
unusual ability both as a promoter
and producer of plays and sketch
comedy. His arrangements of a num
ber of acts, etc., have achieved un
usual success for him. His genial
disposition, frank, friendly manners,
and sunny smile wno for him every
where hosts of fripnds who loved
him, inquired of him and kept in
touch with him no mntter where he
travelled. If he chanced to be In
the East or Carolinas of the Virginias,
he was anion? a host of friends and
If he chanced to be in Arizona. Colo

the paafSjieht consecutive years Mr.
Kennedy has been transportation
manager, property man nnd stage
manager of Prof. Eph William's Silas
Green Company. To say that thev
have missed him during his Illness Is
but putting it in the mildest possi
ble form. He bore up well through
the eight months of solid illness. Hp
was always cheerful, optimistic and
happy. There was not a week when
a company of performers either in
route North or South did not stop
In Nashville to call on and pav their
respects to their fellowcraftsmnn.
To mourn their loss he leaves a be
loved mother, who has nursed him
like an an.irel through all his Illness,
sister, aunt and a host of friends
He was baptized by the Itev. Spencer
Jackson on Jan. 22, 1018. At his
bedside at the last hom were his
mother, sister and intimate friends
of the family. Nashville suffers a
loss of one of its most brilliant and
talented young men in the death of
Mr. Wm. Golf Kennedy.

INDUSTRIAL ARTS DEPARTMENT.
Vocational Training: Its Aim and
An education which cultivates the
industrial spirit is the best edu. a
tion the school can give; it is thu
only all-round Hlucaiion; it is the
only human education; it is the
only education based on the seli
actnity of the pupil and is therefore
the only education which will satis
fy the demands of our day and
generation; potent beyond anything
wo have vt tried; it diminishes
pauperism and crime, which have in
creased out of proportion to tile
growth of population. It is thou
perhaps not too much to say that
contact with the actual material jl
the shop, laboratory, the kitchen ami
tin garden will awaken ihe in !i- !
vulual to the consciousness of the
value of the many iudus.riil phases
Unit touch him on every side and
help to shape his very existence
There can he no question of the de

and a weakling. The pulpit is made
stronger morally, for deception In
vocational training is made more dlf
ticult. In the shop. In the sewing
room, or in the kitchen, be the 'box
too long or too short, the metal too
thick or too thin, the joint too looso,
the basket askew, the stitches un

ness of his work. He' can see and
have pointed out to hini the faults
Contact with the materials of the
shop, the sewing room and kitchen,
and a study of the raw products ana
participation iu the various processes
assist toward a, more complete un
derstanding of our industrial life.
The vocational teachers of Peari
High School are advocates ot the
following reasons why vocational
training is necessary: First, manual
training will create in the mind of
the individual a love for work and
an appreciation ' of the dignity of

Third The industrial side of our
work-a-day existence calling to us
from every walk of life gains clear
ness in the minds of those boys and
girls who engage in vocational work.
Fourth The Immature mind of the
youth demands rest and recreatir.it
from the continuous application of
book studies. The introduction of
hand work relieves the tension and
returns the student to his other
tasks refreshed in body and mind.
Htth The physical development
of the youth Is certain for such
work calls for strength and bodily

BY A DESK.
By Majoris Howard.
Everyone who has been In a
school room knows how a desk looks
so I don't suppose I shall have to
I am an oak desk and I can dis
tinctly remember the time when I
stood on a high hill looking down
on the world. Just how 1 came to
have an educational calling I don't
know, but here I am in Miss Collins'
room at the LUoran School and here
I am likely to stay forever, perhaps.
I do not' see much or the world
but I hear a great deal of it, as Neal
Jones is my present occupant an.l
such a talker I never heard before
in all my life. Her mouth never
closes, even when she gets sent to
the corner. She is about twelve
years of age and pretends to be quite
a young lady, but she is not above
standing in the corner.
.My face has been badly scarred bv
pea knives in, idle hands. I have
heard Miss Collins say that an "idle
brain is the Devil's worshop" and
I am ready to say that "idle hands
are the Devil's workmen," for I am
a sad siiiht. When 1 came Into the
.Moran School for the lirst time 1
was securely nailed to the door
perhaps to keep me from running
away and the desks that had been in
school for QUitu a while hec-an tell
ing me their stories. Some were
most horrible, you may well believe.
The very next morning Jiniinv
Darrell, my first owner, carvel his
initials on my newly polished face 1
was so angry and disgusted that I
Hod all day, which you humans
i au creaking," and when we desks
cieak, we are dissatisfied or angry
Mis3 Collins could not stand the
noise so she sent Jinimv for the
janitor, who fastened me to the
hour with some more of those flat
headed things that you call "nails."
I stopped cr.ing for something
else h.i.i .i;.,:ied my mention. I;
was Eva Ljr.i .1 t ns. She - a.
tlie most precise lir tie uirl the.'. 1
ever sa , Sir- n , missed leg
son; she never missed a day of
school; she. never talked in school
without permission; she was the
best-mannered child that ever was
and the teachers loved her as much
as the children disliked her. She
walked in the clouds and wore a
golden halo on her head. All she will
have to do when she dies is to walk
right into heaven.
There are "Eva Dora's" every
where. Perhaps the girl that sits
next to you in school is one. When
children are so extraordinarily good,
they are cheating themselves' out of
a lot of fun. What- would life be
without some mistakes? it Is not
necessary to be bad like Tommv
Clark. He was the worst bov! He
used to Pull the girls' hair ribbon off
and hide it in Miss Collins apron
pocket. How he did it I do not
know, but of course I do know that
Miss Collins was often placed in
a very embarrassing position. He
used to put tacks in the seats for
the girls to sit on and one dav he
brought a tadpole to school and put
it down Elsie Grizzard's back. Oh,
my! How she did scream! I shali
never forget as long as I live how
comical she appeared Jumping up
and down, yelling: "Miss Collins!
Miss Collins! Tommv put a snake
down my back! He'll bite me! Oh
dear, he'll kill me!"
The children could not help laugh
ing, but one of the girls took Elsie
out of doors. Soon she came back
with, the startling news that Elsie
was dead from the "snake bite."
Miss Collins rushed out, followed by
all of the children, but they soon
came back for Elsie had only fainted
from fear. She was revived in a
short time and her mother came for
her. For a while I thought Tommy
would faint also. He turned as pale
as death, for he thought that Elsie
was dead and he was the cause of
it. I suppose he saw himself In Jail.
Here are some examples of conver
sation that we desks hear:
"Annie, lend me your spelling pa
per. Uncle Jim took us to the
movies' last niht and I dMj't get
any lesson. I'll ten you about the
play at recess. What do you think?
Mary Lou and her beau were at the
show last night and' so much love
talk you never heard! I waa sitting
right behind them and I heard every
word they said."
One girl has the toothache and
some one is giving her a remedy in
granamotner toil mnmnm
that when you have a toothache just
10 put some peppermint in it and
grandma, she knows, she does."
Another remedy goes like this:
"Papa says to put a hot iron on
your tooth when it aches and he "Bays
ii win Biireiy stop. .My papa knows
most anything that's worth knowlnu
How would you like to be a desk?
We desks know the children better
man the teacher does.
Perhaps I shall be here in school
luiercr, nuowing more ana more
cnnaren as the years go by.

Nashville, Tenn., 3-2-18.
The Nashvile Globe, City.
Vou will find enclosed the report
of the Negro Women's War uork
In these times of conservation along
all lines. I have endeavored to bear
in mind that conservation of space in
your valuable paper, for the thing
most important for the time being,
was a necessity and, therefore, have
not submitted this report before, for
the reason that when it was made to
the local authorities here in Nashville
we were told that we should receive
and official acknowledgement from
national headquarters, and I felt that
when that time came around it would
be in order to ask you to make one
publication answer the purpoge.
Feeling that wherever the public is
concerned and Is called upon to give,
it is entitled to a final report is why
I am now submitting this one to you,
also, because it answers several in
quiries that have been made as to
the final result of the campaign.
For the benefit of the general pub
lic, I'd like to state that when w.e
were asked to do this special work,
there were already two campaigns
launched among -our people, namely,
that for the Milk and Ice Fund for de
pendent mothers and babies of the
city, and that of the Forward yuesc
Girls Club. In view of these, it was
decided to give lust a few days or to
have a whirlwind campaign of this
work, in order that we misht go on
with the others: and pledged ourseiV'
es to raise one hundred ($100) dollars
within the stipulated time.
In submitting the names and
amounts nnd the sum total, it may
seem very small, but, whom these oth
er campaigns are taken into consider
ation and the multitudinous demands
made upon us each day, under all tne
existing circumstances, aside from the
fact that there Is no local Y. W. C. A.
for Negroes as an added stimulus,
those of us who did the iwork feel that
the response was very gratifying and
the effort 'well worth while.
When the report was sent In to
Mrs. Trawick, as General Chairman
for the state, she replied that in no
part of her work during the entire
campaign did she find more joy end
appreciation than in the splendid co
operation of our committee, and that
the amount remitted was far beyond
her expectations. If nothing else waa
accomplished, it was clearly demon
strated that we are endeavoring to do
our bit in all of these affairs in which
we are called upon to co-operate.
We' have made the effort to give
credit to every one wiho contributed,
and, to any Who did give and fall to
see their names, I want to say that
they will remember to whom they
made their gift, and It Is Included in
the amount solicited by that indivldu-;
al; as in the rush of the campaign j
we urn noi get ail oi me names irum
the different solicitors, but have giv-j
en due credit for all monies brought
In by each solictior to her. t

"chums" or by distinction between
"swiping" and stealing, but the tact
remains that they are In danger of
forming habits of dishonesty which
are likely to become permanent Re
member, friends, always be honest
In all undertakings. Be ambitious,
have patience and always think be
fore you speak and look before you
leap, for it is everlastingly too late
after you once have leaped. Never
give up; keep on trying, although the
way may seem hard sometimes, and
remember these lines of a famous
"The heights that great men have
reached and kept
Were not attained by sudden
But they while their companions
Were tolling upward In the night."
It is an evidential fact that failure
in the beginning could mean success
in the end, but the trouble with our
race today is that when we get to a
hill we turn back and find ourselves
worse off than at first. Have ambl-

hill no matter what the cost may be
and work like "Hades" to stay there.
The greatest fault of our people is
that they don't co-operate. There
was a man In California that had fif
teen colored men hired and one day
a large log had to be moved and it
took the co-operation of all the men
to move the log. It was done bo gent
ly that the landlord had it published,
being the first time that he had ever
sesn fifteen colored people pull to
gether. So, boys ot today, let's
chang-j this thought and show other
races what we can do. . Though de
graded by two hundred and nfty
years of slavery, we shall rise from
the bottom to the top by the help
of the Lord Jesus.
Now is the time, if there ever was
a time, that we as a rate would need
more men that will live up to their
obligagtions. At all times the tongue
is our ruin, so if we ever intend to
be what the Almighty would have ur
be, we will have to get to the place
where we can control our tongues.
Then, as sure as we are living, we
shall have all the rights of an Amer
I 'tin citizen.
After knowing these things, there
