suene, "Kock of Ayes," which was
snown oy candle light, two girls
clinging to the cross while several
knelt in supplication around the
cross. All wore white robes. While
the curtains were being slowly
raised the school sang "Rock of
Ages." Cn being lowered they
sang "Were, you there when thev
cmcifled my Lord?" On the table
set a decorated Easter basket tillel
.vith many dozens of eggs with dif
lerent beautiful colors and stripes.
After the exercises these were hid
about the church yard by Messrs.
K. B. Buford and John Bills. Quite
a time was experienced in finding
ihe eggs. Several gave up not find
ing a single e.;g. These, of course,
had to go to the retaining basket
in order to be in the egg eating.
After the dismissal by the superin

selves as having had a delightful
Easter celebration. The entire com

when the news of the Budden death
Thursday morning of Mr. Fletcher

AN APPEAL .TO THE TWELVE
MILLION NEGROES OF THE
Our Nation is engaged in a war
for its very existence. To win this
war we must save food, grow great
crops of foodstuffs , and substitute
other foods for those most easily
shipped to our associates in this war
and our soldiers in France, thousands
of whom are men of your own race.
The Food Administration realizes
that the Negro people of this Nation
can be of the utermost help in food
conservation and food production.
Every Negro man, woman and child
can render a definite service by re
sponding to the appeal and instruc
tions of the Food Administration nnri
its representatives. The Negroes have
ouuwu lUBiuseiYes ioyai ana respon-
sive In every national crisis. Their
' trreatest opportunity of the present
!duy, to exercise this loyalty, is to help
save and gro wfood. I am confident
that they will respond to the sug
gestions of the .Food Administration
and thus prove again their patriot
; ism for the winning of this war.

T. ATT WELL CONFERS WITH
Ernest T. Attwell, business agent of
Tuskegee Institute, Alabama, was in
the city several days of last week,
called here for an important confer
once with the food administration at
the suggestion of Director Herbert C.
Hoover. Mr. Attwell was named as
food administrator for the State of
Alabama some months ago, to super
vise the work of food conservation
among the colored people of the vari
ous counties. The vigor which he
put into this work and the successful
organization he built up throughout
Alabama attracted the favorable at
tention of the conservation leaders all
over the South and comments touch
ing his methods and plans reached the
ears of the authorities at Washington.
While here, Mr. Attwell gave a com
pleta'survey of the work he has been
loing among the colored farmers,
housewives, gardeners, and food hand
lers of every description in Alabama,
and it Is understood that steps have
been taken to Introduce his system
In other states of the South, with Mr,
Attwell's supervisory jurisdiction
largely extended. His original Ideas
as to the value of enlisting the thou
sands of colored cooks, butlers, house
wives and buyers, as well as regular
farmers and gardeners, in the South
land were eye-openers to many who
have been scouting the policy of or
inizing the Negro scientifically into
the food conservation movement. Mt.
Attwell is an enthusiast in the work
and Is getting results that will go far
to aid the nation in winning its war
"THE LOYALTY OF A RACJp"
"The Loyalty of a Race" is to be a
"corker." The Morris-Hamburg-Miller
syndicate of movie photographers

368th at Baltimore in the act of being
reviewed by President Wilson and this
wil lbe one of the stellar features of
the big film projected for the National
Coloied Soldiers' Comfort Committee
by Ralph W. Taylor, general secre
tary If all goes well, the picture with
its thrilling scenes and gripping story,
will be seen at the Washington thea
ters early next month and will then
go to the country for a run. The goal
sought by the committee is to raise
a fund of $2,000,000 for the relief of
the dependents of the colored soldiers
called to the colors.

a number of colored orators and
rilers to serve as members of the

sues of the day and to enlighten their
