and others was called together by the
War Department, to which it made
complaint. The National Colored
Liberty Congress was called by a na
tional race committee to hold a peo
ple's convention. From both meet
ings good is resulting.
Expressed in plain uncompromis
ing English, our just grievances
were brought . squarely before the
House of Representatives, and before
the American people, by said Liberty
Congress and were made a promi
nent and permanent part of the Con
gressional Records. (June 29, 1918.)
It seems providentially fortunate
therefore, that this note-worthy
achievement on the part of the Lib
erty Congress is to be so soon fol

vention of the National Equal Rights
League, to be held in September, in

tenth annual convention of our

Therefore let us get together for
organization as a race to enforce our
claims to world democracy. Every
church, civic, education, fraternal,
political and business organization
among our people, without regard to
sect, sex or party are invited to be
represented in the Chicago conven
tion by one, two or several delegates
to deliberate on the organizing of
our race, for self-defense. An espe

RECORD MADE BY FOOD ADMIN
Six thousand meals, ustn ; on'y 50
pounds ot sugar for all purposes is
tha record established by the cafe

rale ol I poimd to 120 meals, and Is

Food Administration is asking the
Americu.i ho sowive to d to save
sugar to use two pounds per person
or I pound for 4! meals.
The Food Administration's cafe
teria feeds aa average ot 600 perams
per day for the noon meal, anl the
amount mentioned covers the use of
sugar for all purposes, including tea,

of the tli'SKtfrts contain s'ich substi

and the use o sugar U confined al
most exclusively to tea and coffee

The cafeteria management was con
vinced thai it could make a record
on sugar oaving from the fact that it
wan so successful in wheat saving.
No wiieat in any form is served, not
even in cooking. Bread is made of
