During the past week, a number of
developments have been brought about
in the interest of a great campaign
for memberships which is to be
launched March 1 to March 22. All
advance indications point to the suc
cess of the effort, and the men who
have in charge its conduct are feeling
much pleased with the prospects for
success. Another development of the
week has been the addition of a
men's committee to the campaign
forces. At a conference held the first

gentlemen, who believed this move
ment should succeed, Nelson C. Crews,
Dr. William .1. Thompkins and V. C.
Hueston were selected to perfect a
men's committee which will outline
and direct the part to be taken by the
men in the coming campaign. They
increased their committee by the ad
dition of the following names:
Mr. Fred AV. Dabney, Nelson C.
Crews, W. C. Hueston, C. A. Franklin,
Prof. H. L.Cox, Prof. J. It. E. Lee,
Mr. Frank JL Harris, Dr. J. E. Dibble,

The women's branch of the work is
progressing nicely. A number of the
generals have completed the selection
of their captains and a number of
others are partially completed.
A complete list of all of the generals
and captains will be -published in the
next week's issue of tho Sun. The

HERE IS YOUR
. J. ALLEN,
C. A. ASTWOOD,
HE greatest oil proposition a Negro ever had the chance to
put a dollar in. If you miss this, you miss your Life's
Greatest Opportunity. Buy your shares today, tomorrow
may be too late. Our President is now in Texas visiting the great
oil center of Burk Burnett. He has secured for our company
a lease in the heart of the Big Gusher District of this great
Black Golconda. We are the only Negro Company operating
in this field. One well may mean an independent fortune for all
of us who invest now. OUR SHARES ARE ONE DOLLAR, PAR VALUE,
AND NON ASSESSABLE. We need money to develop this lease at
at once. We want your aid, we cannot and we do not believe that the race
people of Kansas City are going to allow our Company to go to success without
the loyal support of at least a part of the race people of this city. We are en
deavoring to build up an enterprise that will not only be a cejJitC to the busi
ness acumen of its promoters, but will stand as a lasting monument to our
race in Kansas City. We believe that we are offering our people a great invest
ment opportunity to share in our good fortune in securing this valuable lease,
in one of the richest oil fields in the world.
The tale of this Texas Village reads like a story from the Arabian Nights.
Many, many poor people have grown rich over night. Read Saturday Evening
Post and dailys for the history of Burk Burnett and Ranger. Millions have
been made in these districts in the last ninety days. Remember the old adage,
"One good investment is worth a life r
time of labor 'and savings." The white
race has built enormous fortunes, why
cannot we as a race do the same? Mail
us your subscrption today, tomorrow may
be too late.
