GENERAL FOCH A TYPE OF A
Gen. Foch, one of the greatest
characters in the world today Ib
truly a patriotic American. He knows
no man by tho color of his skin or
texture of his hair. A man Is recog
nized, by this great general, by his
true worth and ability to do. When
the hydra-headed demon of southern
prejudice attempted to Influence
General Foch to segregate colored
officers and soldiers in France he
made the following statement:
"Gentlemen, when Gen. Pershing
came to France, ho found a black
man at the head of the French Army.
France has no color prejudice and
presecutes no man on account ot color
The black man to whom Marshal
Foch referred, is General Dodds.
This man has been stationed In
Cochin China, in command of the
Oriental armies of France for many
years. France honored him for his
ability and sent him at the head ot
the Allied armies In their march to
Pekin during the Boxer uprising.
Gen. Dodds speaks fluently several
languages. Because of his familiar
ity with Chinese languages and cus
toms, he has been a success in the

ficrgt. Edward J. Pitts, formerly of
this city but now with the 61th Pioneer
Infantry, Camp Zacharv, Taylor, Ky.,
has written hTe Nashville Globe,
Fending his ibest regards to the folks
back home and saying they are hop
ing, even though peace was declared,
that the same spirit would permeate
the camps as heretofore with regard
to efficiency in soldier life. He is a
constant reader of the Globe.
"The litter submission and strip
ping of the Hun," "A surrender un
exampled in the history of the
world," "If ever in the world's his
tory there was an Unconditional Sur
render, it is thl3 of Germany"
these are some typical expres
sions of the reaction of the country's
editors to the terms of the armistice
that ended the Great War. The New
York Herald, since the early days of
the war most bitterly insistent on
German defeat, exults that "German
militarism is not only defeated, but
crushed; not only prone, but bound
hand and foot. Did ever another
truculent militarism meet such a
debacle?" The New York Evening
Post, whose attitude has been char
acterized by that coolness which
much ratiocination is supposed to
bring to the emotions, is equally en
thusiastic. Says The Post: "To have

REV. M. E. ROBINSON, D. D.,
Of Beaumont, Tex., President of the
Third Convention of Texas, a memlber
the Peace Commission from the
Unincorporated National Baptist Con
ventlon. "Eminently satisfactory," the
New York Evening Sun calls these
terms, and discusses them in their
"They safeguard the interests of
the Allies and the United States;
they are sternly severe to the culprit
nation which has deluged the world
in blood; withal, they are humane,
since they promise sustenance to the
beaten people; they impose no per
manent subjection upon them; on
the contrary, they open the way for
reorganization of the German body
politic upon a civilized basis.
"Despite their severity, it Is im
possible to regard the stipulations as
crushing or cruel. They are strictly
military in character and leave all
adjustments ot civil questions to the
future. They arc not deliberately

far better than she deserved or than

"It must be remembered that th's
present array of conditions is not a
linal peace program. It merely
covers a suspension ot hostilities for
the negotiation of peace. But, in
fact, on the one, hand, it places the
military situation so completely in
the hands of America and the Allies
that they will be able to dictate any
terms to Germany that they elect;
on the other hand, it adumbrates
with tolerable clearness the lengths
to which these terms will be pushed
Restitution, restoration, emancipa

four heads in the Ally program.
These, it is clear, will be insisted
upon to the full degree, but there the
hostile purpose ends. There is no
project ot subjugation or dismember-
"lont - "
The New Yory Times gives this
summary of what Germany will lose
with the land that she is now in
process of evacuating:
"The territory lying on the west
ern or left bank of the Rhine within
the German Empire to be evacuated
by the German troops represents in
productivity about twenty-five per
cent, of the entire Empire's manu
facturing industry, omitting ship
building, over seventy per cent, of its
mining products, and over ten per
cent, of its agriculture. It includes
an area of nearly 20,000 square
miles, which had before the war a
civil population of over 11,000,000.
"The importance ot the industrial
region of Prussian Province, and even
that of the fortifications of Metz and
atrassburg, Is completely discounted
by the iron rt-glon ot the Bassln de
Briey, in Lorraine, which, beginning
ever the Belgian and Luxemburg
frontiers, ascends the Moselle to
within a few miles of Pont-a-Mous-
son. This mining region, witn an
area ot 225 square miles, was cut in
twe by the treaty ot Frankfort, which
dosed the Franco-Prussian War of
1870-71, and was entirely occupied
by the Germans in August-December, !
1914. On September 13 last the
First American Army in wiping out
tho St. Mihlel salient reached its
"During the war the Bassln de
Briey has provided the German arma
ments with eighty per cent of their
steel, and without it, according to
the most facous Dusseldort iron-
masters, the Empire could not have nag blessed the little town. The doc

MESSAGE FROM THE DEPART
MENT OF LABOR.
By George E. Haynrs.
Tho editor of the Nashville Globe
has asked me to send a message on
the Department of Labor work with.

ing to a victorious enu. one ul u
earliest ouestlons the war presented
was the large migration of Negro
workers from the South. The de-
payment has had a thorough invest
patlon made ot the causes and prob
lems of this migration. The report
is now in the press and will be pub
lished in book form of about 200 pafes.
It deals in a frank, unbiased way
with the facts; it makes constructive
suggestions and should be a substan
tial help In securing justice In race
re'ations. Copies will be available
for free distribution.
A number of requests have come
to mv office In Washington for more

From now on buuii lh.uhi.ii.v v,.. u

tofore first because there was so
much to do in interests of Negro wa?e
enrners and of winning the war that
. . ... .ii
an energies or employees
1 nhnorbed with other work. In the
. - .
second place it seemed best to wait
until there were substantial results
achieved lest, there should be too
much said In comparison with what
ha-i been done.
The first task was to create the
macWnnrv throuch which the Depart
ment could get the co-operative help
of representatives ot Negro wage-earners,
wb'te employers and wherever
possible of what workmen in apnMn?
the national standards and policies
of the Denartment to local problems.
The Secretary of Labor adopted the
nrinclnle that the Neirro worker right
fully should have representation In
councils where his Interests wre to
be considered. In line with this prin
ciple and that ot co-operation of white
employers and white workmen state
conferences of representatives of Ne
gro waeeearners. white employers,
and, wherever possible, of whit work
men have been held in Virginia,
North Carolina, Florida, Misslss'ppi,
Kentucky, Illinois, Ohio and New Jer
aov Others will be held soon in Mi
chigan, Missouri. Louisiana and South
Carolina. At these conferences open
discussions of plans and problems
have taken place. Following the ron-,
ferencps Negro Workers' Advisory
Committees have been formed for the
state as a whole, and as rapidly as
possible for each county and city. At
the present time we are forming local
committees in Pennsylvania and Ten
nessee as the first steps toward state
wide work, since the cessation of the
war has lessened the need of haste.
These committees have official rela
tions with State and County Councils
of Defense. United States Employ
ment Service, Community Labor
Boards, Commercial Clubs and other
nrnnxiM interested. They are . not
meant to replace existing organiza
tions and atrencies but to be the
means of Unking the Department of
Labor's protrram as It relates to Ne
gro Wage-earners to all the local
forces for Industrial and agricultural
In nine states the Department has
Appointed competent colored men as
Supervisors of Negro Economics who
have promoted the program In their
respective states under the advice ot
the Director of Netrro Economics as
the advisor to the Secretary of Labor.
The work of these advisory com
mittees and supervisors has varied
with the different problems wnicn
have arisen in different localities. In
some places thev have dealt success
fully with tho effort to apply "work
or fight" legislation to colored women;'
in others they have helped to settle
friction between white and colored
workmen; in others they, have helped
the Employment Service and employ
ers secure competent Negro workers.
Fspeclallv have they been active in
Ohio In introducing colored women in
to industrial plants under favorablo
conditions. Hundreds of local meet
ings, some of them having thousands
in the audience, 'have been held to
acoualnt the local people with the
naHrtn's labor needs. Manv of these
meetings white and colored citizens
have attended and the speakers have
been white and colored. The office of
the Secretary at Washlneton has been
the center from which all these van-
ous activities have been directed in
. eleven states.
This work has re-
oi'ired taxing effort from many em
plovees and the assistance of many
"rivnte rdtlzens. white and colored.
