LIEUT. CLARENCE DAWSON.
It Js said that "All things come to
him who walitB" and to this has been
added by some one, "If be hustles
while he wjiits." In1 this great world
war the Negro Js not only waiting
but he is hustling while he waits and
in the hustle he is coming into some
of his own. He Is proving beyond
a shadow of a doubt that if he is
given the chance that he will prove
to Die world that all be wants in! the
race of life Ms a fair- chance. He
askis no favors. In this titanic world
struggle for the triumph of democra
cy the Negro has, Abraham like, of
fered up his only son to fight for our
country. They are also 'investing' in
Liberty Bonds and Thrift Stamps, as
well as being contributors to the Red
Cross movement. 'Nashville people

In speaking to a Globe representa
tive he said "I don't care for any mo
toriety;' but the reporter succeeded
In getting some very important facts
from him. Lieut. Dawson Is one of
the many college men who entered
the training school, but tie was a
military student at the University of
Minnesota, where he was a student
with honorable mention. From this
University he iwas sent to Ft. Sheri
dan, where for some time he was the
only Negro student and was the first
Negro to enter this camp. Ft. Sheri
dan, we must remember, is one of
Umlcle Sam's permanent training
camps. It is possibly the best equip
ped camp in our great union. It has
tihe advantage of all modern warfare,
such ais trendies, machine gnna, avi
ation fields, etc., that were already
prepared before this great struggle
In this camp, were 3500 university
and college studewts ,and two of
these were Negroes. From this num
ber 1500 were selected for the infan
try as 2nd lieutenants, and from this
number 325 were selected for .hiigh
scholarship for special work in Per
sonel Adjutant work. In this num

At Ft. Sheridan there were repre
sentatives from possibly more than
350 colleges, including the University
of Tennessee as well as Vanderbllt,
one of the graduates is now station
ed at Vanderbilt.
Lieut. Dawson will have charge of
the business side of the S. A. T. C.
as ft relates to enlistment assign
ment, allotmnet insurance, etc. He
reached the ity last Friday and has
headquarters in one of the mainy
buildings on Fisk campus. He has
a competent number of stenographers
in order to expedite business. These
are supplied from the S. A. T. C. as
It is composed of some ot the best
there is in our Negro college boys,;
as well as professors of colleges.
ilt is especially gratifying to note
these well merited recognitions and
in any field of endeavor this came
result will obtain.
Lieut. Dawson states that he had
some little diilicuty at his entrance
to Ft. Sheridan, but when it was
seen that his credentials must be
recognized he was admitted without
further delay, and that while there
he was given every treatment and
fare that was given all members of
the camp. He is aleo a member of
Ft Sheridan Officers' Association,
.whose membership heretofore was
composed only of whites.
The question that has kept Ne
groes from holding' membership in
ifol8 Association is Are you an olli
cer from Ft. Sheridan Training
School?" This was answered af
firmatively, hence there was no al
terative but admittance for Lleii'
tenant Dawson. This is proof posi
tive that the efficient Negro will hold
1:1s own anywhere and that educa
tion will remove prejudice.
If preparedness means anything it
.-should mean more to us than to any
other race. It, was preparedness that
has siven to us these commissioned
officers and more and more will tbey
come to us. This is the beginning
uf a great awakening. Lieut. Daw
son wam not favored, it was scholar
sihlp that placed him where he is
today. A thoroughly prepared man
in military tactics as pertain to any
phase of army work aiwd especially
rs it pertains to the S. A. T. C. is
L'eut. Clarence Dawson, who Is in
our midst for an indefinite stay.'
A LETTER FROM PRIVATE JOHN
To Friends at His Home in Columbia,
When I am away from you all per
.haps somewhere In France, I ask you
lo think of me in prayer. To leave
you dear little girls is hard, but
hardest of all I can say that' I am no
slacker. When I hear my country's
call I must go. To bp at home with
you little girls that is happy to be
true, but I cannot see my enemy if
I stay at home with you. I used to I
be with you all often. Thope beauti-'
ful days it makes me blue to think I
that I am so far away. Some day in
the far-off future this great conflict
will end and the soldier boy who loves
you will come to see you again. It
is the duty of all the girls who are
left behind to always remember the
soldier who' is on the firing line. The
girls here are beautiful and most
everywhere we roam, but nothing to
compare with the ones we left at
home. Some girlB are not patient.
They will not wait so long. They will
go and marry some slacker after the
soldier bov Is gone.
