Tlio following is extract from the
Resolutions adopted by the confer

of the Negro press, which has a cir
culation of more tha n amiilion cop
ies, principally among the colored
people of America, and representa
tives of other activities, iwish to af
firm first of all, OUR UNALTER
ABLE1 BELIEF THAT THE DEFEAT
OF Till' GERMAN GOVERNMENT
AND WHAT IT TODAY REPRE
SENTS IS OF PARAMOUNT IM
PORTANCE TO T.HR WELFARE OF
THE WORLD IN GENRRAL AND
TO OUR PEOPLE IN PARTICULAR.
"We deem It hardly necessary, in
view of the uutarnnished record of
Negro Amen'oans to reaffirm our
loyalty to Our Country and our readi
ness to make every sacrifice to win
tihs war. We wish, however, as stu
dents and guides of public opinion
among our peope, to use our every
en.leavor to fceep these 12,000,000
people at the highest pitch, not sim
ply of passive loyalty, but of active,
enthusiastic and self-sacriCcing par
ticipation in the war.
"Wo are not unmindful of the rec
ognition of our American citizenship
in the draft, of the appointment of
colored officers, of the resignation
Icolnred officers or tho ,resjignaition
ment departments, and to other In
dications of a broadened public opin
ion, nevertheless we believe today
that justifiable grievances of the .col
ored people are producing not dis
loyalty, but an amount of unrest and
bitterness which even the best ef
forts of their loaders may not he able
always to guide unless they can have
the active and sympathetic co-operation
of the National and State gov

mong us is powerless, hut the ap
