NASHVILLE GLOBE, FRIDAY APRIL 12, 1918.
Mr. Bdltoi: Our Country la wa
ua aa enemy wioae success means
slavery many times worse than the
one from whicn Lincoln MUAidmiiui
us. Our President has told us that
one of the essentia! for success Is
food. Someone has gone so far ss
to oay "Food will win the war." We
have given our men and our money
to help. the cause of Democracy.
Now let us wtio are under and over
ttho axe limit for soldiers, enlist In
the cause for which we can fight
producing bigger crops. When the
war Is over end our fla? returns vlc
tonoi's, and It mill, we want to grasp
the hands of our soldier boys and
tcl) tbem we did our bit as well a?
they did theirs. We want to show,
and we must show, to our President,
and the noble white men of the civ
ilized world, that colored Americans
measured up to the mark In the fight
for Democracy. By our condu. lett
us make every white man confess,
when he thinks of us; when he speaks
of us and when he sceis us, that we
were the most loyal of the loyal. We
have a battle to fight here at home
end we must win. The colored and
white farmers should Immediately get
together and map out a plan for mu
tual welfare and division of labor.
Then let every man and woman, hoy
end girl; not eniiste.l in the Army
or Navy, volunteer his or her services
duriiiT this crisis. We cannot afford
to allow tlie lure of a few dollars to
divert us from our national duty. The
reward of being a patriotic citizen ii
a thousand fold greater than a few
dollnre ready cash. Do your duty to
Uncle Sam and he will be compelled
to do his duty to yon. When the war
is over and various men are called
it. An,!,., ir..u t .o nr.nm.n,i. I
latel for the part they played in the j
great struggle, some colored man will
be anions; the number, and the Presi
dent will say: "Well done, faithful
American, enter thou into the joys of
Democracy." Is there a colored man
in America who will not rejoice at
these words? Will it not 'be music to
his ears? We are a music loving peo
ple. Then let us make the President
utter the wordjs, and our hearts set
them to music.
From the dawn of Democratic Ameri
ca to this date we have been tried
and never denied the glory that was
ours. Let us prove that progress in
intellect, finance and morals has not
weakened our zeal for our country's
cause. Let our motto to Uncle Sara
be: There is no age limit to the loy
alty of Colored Americans.
,Naw, Mr. Editor, in closing this ar
ticle, I want to impress upon your
mind and the minds of those who read
this, that It is not my intention to
advise, persuade or Induce any man
or woman who has gone from the
South to the North to return to the
South. It Is not iny intention to ad
vise, persuade or induce any man os
woman in the South to remain there
if it is his or her desire to leave, but
I do want to impress upon those,
North and South, East and West who
ahve their country's welfare at heart
that now is the time to show their
patriotism. Thip war demands that
our country, our soldiers and our al
lies must have food. Will you help
Very truly yofrs,

HADLEY SCHOOL NOTES.
We are always glad to let the pub
lic know the news of this school. This
building was erected In the summer
and fall of 1907. Prof. K. W. Benton
was our first principal, who labored
hard to place this school on a high
plane where it rightfully belongs.
In the fall of 1914, Prof. W. M.
Allen took charge of it as Principal,
Prof. Benton having been sent to
Bellevlew School as principal.
We are yet trying to hold our
place anion? the leading grammar
schools of the city, realizing the fact
that all heights are gained by per
sistent and untiring efforts on the
part of individuals. Hence, we are
struggling hard to do our duty as we
see it from time to time keeping in
mind the fact that whatever is worth
doing is worth doing well. Our les
sons are very hard at times, yet we
are striving hard to make our grade
in June when the term ends. We are
yet trying to do our "bit" during this
great war to help our country. There
is something for all of us to do. Every
boy and girl must do his or her part.
We know we are not old enough to
Join the army" with the big soldier
boys and go into the trenches and
fight for "democracy," yet we can
Join the "army of furrows" and work
our gardens. By doing so we are
helping those who have gone to the
buying War-Savings Stamps. We are
trying to do our duty along this line.
Every stamp bought means a shot at
the Germans and autocracy. We are
for America first, last and always.
From time to time we yet have
visitors to drop in. Last week Prof.
A. C. Webb, Prof. Milton Cook. Dr.
L. A. Fisher and Dr. J. P. Crawford
were with us. Prof. Webb talKed to
us about birds, some of their habits'
and the use they are to mankind.
Prof. Conk interested us in music. Dr.
Crawford went into all the rooms of
the building as he usually does to in
spect the work that is being done by
the teachers. Dr. Fisher is a very
close observer and always looking
for vsrious symptoms that may ap
pear at any time. These gentlemen
carry joy and sunshine wherever they
r We are looking forward to next
week, when the daylight saving law
goes into effect. We are goin.g to
try to be on time Monday morning,
even if we do start an hour earlier.
'Mr. Editor, we are very sorry you
idid not have space for the poetry we
wanted published last week. A mem
ber of our class composed it.
Rev. T. M. Brumfield will be the
principal speaker at our Parent
Teachers' meeting Friday evening,
April 21, at 2:30.

THE COLORED PEOPLE OF LIN
COLN COUNTY HEED THE CALL
TO UNCLE SAM'S ARM.Y
Grand Reception and Banquet Held
at the A. M. E. Church.
Fayetteville. Tenn. April 2, 1918,
was one of the greatest occasions
ever held among the colored people
in the whole history of Lincoln
County's existence. Mrs. Brown, the
wife of the pastor, is due all honor
and respect for the occasion. The de
coration committee is due the same
respect and honor. (The church was
beautifully decorated with the stars
and stripes. A. big flag hung over
the Boldiers where they were seated
to hear the speaking and the choir
render the most beautiful music
that one could ever want to hear.
The speakers of the occasion were
both colored and white. Kev. Dr.
Edwards made the most forceful
speech ever heard made by a white
man to a body of colored people. He
told them to be brave men and sol
diers and cautioned them very
strong along the line of degraded
men and women, of gamblers and
everything that's evil which they
must come in contact with "Be brave
and be heroes."
After this speech, the choir sang
"Be a Hero." Rev. Dr. Green made
a speech with so much truth and life
that it will live as long as there is a
Lincoln County. Though envied by
the ignorant, he tried his best to
explain to them as he spoke. Dr.
Ureen in a nice way told of how much
the Negro has accomplished in. his
almost fifty-three years of freedom,
which is proportionately equal to that
of the wbtle man, who has had al
most twenty centuries. The appoint
ed officers were made stand. Harry
Landers, as captain; Suggs, Aekin
and Moore, assistants. After this
the choir sang "Three cheers for the
red, white and blue." Rev. Dr. Brown
in all his remarks on this occasion
was very gentle, firm and full of
command. While the choir was sing
ing "Three cheers for the red, white
and blue," the hostess could be seen
winding her way through the great
crowd to the basement, where the
refreshments were served. We must
not fail to mention that several other
matrons were following the hostess,
where they, too, possibly spent their
time the past week. The dining room
(let's don't say basement any more)
was beautifully arranged with the
stars and stripes. In the kitchen
there were many different kinds of
eatables. We have served receptions
and banquets of all kinrs for govern
ors and their wives, senators and ex
senators, but we did not find as many
varieties of eatables as we did In
this kitchen. The table in the din
ing room was arranged to seat thirty
three soldiers. A special chair was
placed at the head of the table for
the captain. The blessing was said
by Brother Walter Clark. Mr. Matt
Edniondson, Pope Hotel porter, with
Mr. Ambrose Dobbins served as wait
ers. The table In the kitchen where
different courses were being prepared
was surrounded by Mesdames Roscoe
Bryson, Joe Lamb, Willie Buchanan,
Jim Eslick, Ruben Taylor, John
Hampton, Henry Bryson and every
thing was carried out under the care
ful direction of Mrs. Brown, who was
so eager that each and every plate
be llxed just exactly alike. The
last course served was ice cream and
hat chocolate. At the close of the
occasion the soldiers lined up and
marched to the colored hospital,
where they spent the night. In the
care and hospitality of Rev. Dr.
Green. The next morning the sol
diers were met at the station where
they had marched by hundreds of
friends, colore and white. Three
boxes of cigars were given to the
captain to be given to his men in
charge any time they desired to

Church will never be forgotten by
those who wtre there.

The speaker said that while Tennes
s&s was ahead of other southern sta tes
in the matter of educational Institu
tions, yet 15 per cent, of the children
between 9 and 15 years of age could
not read and write. He added, that
although $800,000,000 were spent
for education in the United States,
yet there were 2,250.000 children
who could not read and write. Prof.
Williams' work, as Field Agent, takes
him into every state in the South and
he has visited nearly all the High
schools that have been erected for
colored children. He gives It as his
opinion that Pearl High school is not
surpassed by any that he has seen.
