that it is estimated that by conserva

are fighting with the American

and that their deeds of heroism are
being heralded to the four corners
of the world. The allied generals

One of the songs which they fre

gave further evidence of their 10)

never failed to eliuit rapturous ap
plause from the white passengers,
was "Three Months From Now We

An amusing incident took piaca
the second day out Forty or fifty
of the colored soldiers had formed a
ilrcle and were singing to their
hearts' delight, and the delights of
tne passengers. One of them, seem
ingly, changed his voice with each
song or hymn. "What do you sing?'
called down from the upper deck, a
yood natured son of the Emerald Isle,
yuitk as a flash came the answer,
"Sometimes I sing bass ana some
times I sing soprano.' And it was
true, for in the chorus he adapted
himself to the type of the song he
was singing, to the circumstance, to
the other singers, and above ali, per
haps, to his mood. Because they
were lighthearted, cheerful, when go
ing across the big waters, it must
not be uocepted that they were mere
ly lighthearted because of lack of
brain development, for many unions
them were bright, intelligent men,

BETTER NEGRO SCHOOLS FOR
Baton Rouge, La.1 The State Co;
parlmeiil oi Education has just ia
sueu a notable bulletin on Negro ed
ucation prepared by Mr. Favrot, state
agent tor rural colored schools. It
let accompanied -Ynji appeal from
State SuJerirte.J jTa. HarriC;t.aiv,
ish superintendent hd school boards
to aid in a'state-wide betterment of
colored schools, which is shown as
necessary "from the viewpoint of
our economic and industrial develop
ment, from the viewpoint of health,
public safety and justice."
Louisiana has in 15 years made
splendid progress witn her white
scnools, for which she pays more
tnan any Southern State; but her
expense for Negro education is less
than any state in the country. Mr.
1'avrot quotes from Dr. Dabney, the
distinguished Tennessee educator, to
sno.v tne economic results of educa
tion. According to Dr. Dabney Mas
sachusetts gives her citizens ' seven
years' s.hooling, and her yearly per
capita production is $2U0; the United
States, with 4.4 years' schooling, pro
duces $17o per capita per. year;
Tennessee, with three years' school
ing, produces $llti per year.
Taking $100 as the yearly produc
tion o( the uneducated Negro, tha bul
letin gives a careful estimate of fi
nancial loss to tho state through
sickness and death preventable by
sanitary improvement, of nearly
$lti,000,000 per year. This does not
include the sisck loses of whites
traceable to health conditions among
Nig oej. The state also bears its
share of soil devastation in the South,
where lUO.UOO.OOJ acres are cultivated-by
Negro, farmers, tenant and
laborers, most of whom have' never

"We see the need," says Mr". Fav
