the white leaders were contending.

AND PROTECTION FOR BLACK
NAMERICA, WHO GAVE HER
The world war is over, so far as
guns and ammunition go, but the
war for the freedom of mankind has
just begun. Let every nation on the
globe get together for the betterment
of all. Let us not have any malice
toward Germany or any of her en
tente. They were wrong, and they
now' see it. They have surrendered
all to our side and are now begging
for help. We can make them better
people by extending Christian sympa
thy to those who were not responsible
for this bloody conflict. Don't let
this world's war bring on a hardship
to those who tough! for the freedom
ot all, as the black man fought for
tor, "I'll soon fix you." Whereupon
he called for a burley brakeman and
they were about to throw this one
armed veteran out of the car when
the gorge of the Southern men who
witnessed this humiliating sc?ne
rose, the train hands were ordered
to desist, and Pershing's veteran

man ln a carload of whites. "Oh,

On last Sunday evening at 3
o'clock the student body ot Fisk,
Roger Williams, State Normal and
Meharry met at the Bijou theatre
and many of the citizens of the city
met and heard able addresses, the
most favorable of which was the ad
dress delivered by Mr. John C.
Wright, a former teacher of Tuske-'
gee, who had Just returned from
France where he had been engaged
ln war work ln the Y. M. C. A. capac
ity for more than eight months. . Dr.
J. F. Lane of Lane College was the
first sepaker who in turn introduced
the state chairman for the colored
war work of the state of Tennessee,
who in turn introduced Prof. Wright.
His address was as clear and chaste
as any one would want to hear and
that vast audience was held at at
tention for nearly two hours listen
ing to the many trials experienced
by the speaker and Dr. John Hope
of Morehouse college, at Atlanta,
Ga. He made an everlasting im
pression on his audience as an edu
cator, a scholar and a big brother.
All believe he told the thing as It
was really carried on in France. We
hope we will be able to hear more
