Victor Jones, secretary of the Com

that since Christmas is history now,
more persons will give their atten

The Commercial Club will be the
headquarters during the week. It is
the aim of the club to secure as many
available rooms as possible, and it is
hoped that every person in Columbia
having rooms to furnish for the oc

The "Black Belt," Is Becoming a City
Within a City.
By United Tress
CHICAGO, Dec. 26. Rapid influx of
negroes here has created a problem of
importance to Chicago today. The col
ored population is estimated at be
tween 40,000 and 75,000. The "black
belt" is rapidly widening. Negroes
hae a "city within a city."
Considered of most importance in
connection with the situation Is the
residence problem. The negro dis
trict has become a haven of vice,
driven from other parts of the city by
"clean-up" orders. Negro boys and
girls are brought up in the midst of
Immorality. Bawdy houses, gambling
dens, saloons and other agents of de
struction have become established in
the negro district.
Of strange connection is the fact
that 137 years ago Jean Baptise Point
De Sable, a Santo Domingo free ne
gro, built the first house on the shores
of Lake Michigan where Chicago now
spreads out over a territory of 198

By United Tress
LONDON, Dec. 26. For fear spies
might seek to transmit information to
Teutonic agents in this country via
pictures, the British censorship de
clined to permit the mailing of any
photographs to America this Christ
mas. Many American families, resident in
f England, whose number has been aug
mented by bouncing baby boys or girls,
were disappointed by the ruling; and
the folks at home will have to get
along without seeing their diminutive
