The negro question is still very much alive apparently.
The advent of the democracy in Washington with' a prominent southern .
flavor to the cabinet has produced a situation that brings the old problem
f|ii«^to the attention of the people with renewed force. r^^,s'^ X' ;
. v - No overt revolution has been announced but quietly it is charged the new
administration in . several departments i has undertaken to "make the negro
keep his place" according,to old fashioned Southern standards.• j* And to this
end blacks in the government employ have found themselves shifted about or
mated until it is alleged a gradual-development of segregation is . taking
place which will ultimately eliminate the \ black employes from mingling with
Iplt is apparent that what has been done has been done calmly with much
premeditation and care to avoid arousing the nation as it is being aroused.
That the negro has seen the clever, game is evidence in itself that he is no
MDger the cringing worm of ante-bellum days but he is realizing that he is an
American citizen, with rights "and opportunities: guaranteed to him, and that
|? those rights should be respected. A'f-^li£;;W^X£> V; i ' '■'»•' ' ■.:,
The negro as a race if not all to be f desired. The same can be said of 1; the !
Caucasian. But the negro is here, he is black, he did not come of his own voli
tion, and it is up to this nation to make the best of him and make a man of him.
The nation will not stand for Jim Crowism at Washington, and the offic
ials there will discover they have made serious blunder in doing anything to
raise the issue. .-'•**
Plan Those Christmas Presents Now Ml
■: Almost everybody in this country who lives until the day will get or give a
Christmas present. Many, a very great many, won't begin to plan the present
until the holidays are near; and then they'll be caught in the shopping rush,
will be put to hurry or annoyance, will add to the strain on overworked toilers
id, by their heedlessness, will rob the great day of some part of its joy. il -:*
How much better, in every way, is the practice of a family in Philadel
phia, described in the Telegraph. Every year, not later than Oct 1, each of
this group of five begins to lay aside Christmas money. As soon as one has a
sum saved, he or she makes a list of persons to be remembered and of gifts ap
propriate and possible. Then, beginning with the top name on the list, which
rariably is mother, the author of the list sets forth to buy the gift or the ma
terials of which it is ;to be made, weeks before the stores are crowded. In this
% ? way, *'the night before Christmas" finds every member of that household
ready; indeed, the readiness runs back I for weeks. ;"■ And, thus distributed, the 7
expense and the work are both light; giving is as much a joy as receiving. Nor
is any clerk or delivery worker made the more tired. Evi;\ ■ -:■-■ ;, -•■ : ; , '."'^"/

r« McLeod's Talk^
Bey. Murdock McLeod spoke to the parents and teachers at Stadium High
e»1 Thursday on teaching of sex hygiene in the schools and urged that both,
;hers and parents give their best thought to the matter of dress, morality
chivalry among the students. ' 7;. /
The thinking world is rapidly shaking off the mock modesty of the last
eration on these questions of vital import to the race and is getting ready
to face the responsibility of properly directing the young in matters of the re

It is conceded that sex hygiene should be taught the child, but difficulty
in the problem seems to be a working schedule which will meet ; the require
There is very little argument on the "why" of the case now and it is
merely a question of the "how."
' Western Washington Fair ;^:^^^^^^^SgS
The Western Washington fair at Puyallup next week is more than a mere

The Superior Folk
Let's get together and tell ourselves
How supreme we are.
Let's perch 'way up on our lofty shelves
And gaze on life from afar;
Let's look with soora on the common herd
Who toil at a useful Job,
Let's speak of art as a magic word
And sneer at the busy "mob.**
Let's apeak of faith as an outworn thing.
Of love as a creed that's dead,
At everything simple and plain we'll fling
A barb with a poisoned head;
Let's jest at honor and sneer at law
And chortle at truth as rot,
Till people murmur "We never saw
Such a liberal-minded lot."
And while we jabber and sneer and smirk
And our words of wisdom fall
The world will trudge to its daily work
And never will care at all!

Here are some of the essays and letters that came in this week.
Michael Earle, 12 years old, who lira* at 709 Cedar street and goes
to the St. Leo's boys' school, wina the dollar prize.
This week I did not Judge the prize essays) myself, but turned
them all aver to Mr. James W. Egan, the baseball writer of the
Times. He is a critic on baseball, and I thought he would be a
better Judge of essays on baseball than myself. He says that the
essays are all so good he had a hard time deciding which was the
M&ytyi he selected Michael's essay because It was about the Ta
coma Tigers, but anyway he picked It out from the others as the
beat and moat neatly written of all the essays. Jot McKean, whose
slater won the prize two weeks ago, also has a dandy essay. I wish
the members would read all the •■says carefully and then write
essays on the next subject. I will announce next week's essay on
Monday. Tour friend,

"Baseball to the national game in America. It Is played in
most every state. It can be played in a dirty or clean way, Just
as the players feel We have a team in this city called the 'Tigers.'
They are In fifth place In the Northwestern league race. McGlnnlty
is the owner and a pitcher. He Is now among the best pitchers in
the league, winning near 2 3 games.
"We have other fine pitchers such as Olrot, Kurfeas, Kraft.
Kaufman, Belford. The Tigers have had hard luck this season but
will have better next.

"Baseball is the 'National
Game' of the United States. It
Is one of the most enjoyable
games there is. It is fun to watch
a game of baseball or play In it.
Would it not be fine if you could
knock out a '■home run' with the
bases full and win the game for
your team. That Is one of the
most desired objects of profes
sional ball players.
"To American boys the 'Na
tional Game' is easy to learn but
to foreigners it Is very hard.
People who do not understand
baseball ask so many foolish
questions about It that one who
knew the game would almost die
laughing at them. I.lke the
Irishman who asked a player who
had Just cracked out a three-bag
ger, why he did not run right to
third base instead of to first,
second and then third base. Base
ball is now played In France and
is rapidly progressing In Im
portance In other European
countries. Baseball la one of
the best games on the face of the

"Baseball is my favorite sport
and I guess in all America. I go
to all the games I get a chance.

corner. I think John M.-Keana
Idea for a badge or flower for the
members of the circle would be
"Should children under 16
year* of age attend baseball on
Sunday? I shall use this as a
question as well as a text. I hay«
three playmates all under 16. I
asked their father if they oould
go to Sunday school with me. He
said I have cut out that Sunday
school business. They wanted to
go but could not. (But most every
Sunday afternoon he takes them
to see a ball game. lam a lit
tle girl, eleven years old. I have
never seen a ball game but my
daddy cays when I am older he
will take me and explain it to me
as he is an old time catcher In a
team in Schenectady, N. V., and
has a beautiful silver cup present
ed ihlm on the second day of Sep
tember, 1889, for a score of four
to two. He made three base
hits and two home runs in that
game. He never plays any more.
He always reads the baseball
news In the Tacoma Times while
I like Uncle Ted's corner best.
