The, Community program at Lin
coln High School last Sunday after
noon was one of the best ever held
there and Prof. J. R. E. Lee is to be
highly congratulated for the splendid
men and women he brings from time
to time before our people. The ad
dress by Dr. R. H. Miller, the distin
guished pastor of the Independence
Boulevard Christian church, was a
masterpiece of logic, encouragement
and oratory while the singing of the
Southern Melody Makers Quartette
has never been excelled. The display
of work done in the dress making and
millinery department by the girls and
in the Trades Buildings by the boys
was a revelation to many and the
monster audience which crowded the
Auditorium to its capacity and over
flowed itno the halls and stair ways
was a living testimonial of earnest
appreciation of what has been done
for our High School as well as the
needs of a larger, modern and up-to-date
building to meet the phenomenal
growth of this Institution which has
grown by leaps and bounds under the
management and supervision of Prof.
J. R. E. Lee. Give us a new High

WORK OF THE NATIONAL URBAN
"The purposes of tho National Ur
ban League are (1) to develop co
operating among tho agencies which
work among Negroes for social bet
terment: (2) to make investigations
of conditions as a basis for practical
work; (3) to stimulate agencies al
ready to work to extend their fields
so as to include Negroes; and (4) to
train colored social workers who
are conversant with the best methods
of service and are possessed of the
necessary broad vision so as to pro
secute the work successfully."
In a single year the National Urban
League has helped 20,000 Negroes to
secure employment; has placed twen
ty welfare workers to increase the
efficiency of Negro labor; has helped
cities conduct classes for tho training
of foremen, as well as the teaching
of Illiterates; has conducted eleven
community houses in the congested
districts of large cities; has helped
thirty cities carry out "programs for
better conditions among Negroes in
health, housing, recreation, education,
and morals"; has secured the coopera
tion of two hundred white and color
ed and civic agencies.
For 1921 the League needs $6G,000
to carry on Its National work. It
aims to show the employer, group how
valuable Negro labor is and to show
the Negro workers how efficient and
reliable they must be to hold the
places they have won in .hdustry.
"The League's ultimate aim is to help
to' Bpread the spirit of service.
It is the hope of the League that the
time will come when there "will be
no privilege or opportunity too good
to be extended in our great land to
any human being of any creed or of
any color." Southern Workman.
That Negro Restaurants and Bar
ber Shop's may as well reduce their
prices or go out of business because
that's what's going to happen, believe
That one dress and a pure up
right character count for more in the
sight of God and good men and wom
en than all the diamonds, silks and
furs obtained by questionable meth
ods. If you believe It say, Amen.
That a certain justly indignant
husband gave a white collector an
awful clubbing and then ran him a
mile because he caught him hugging
his wife last week. Why not run her
a few miles too?
That a recent visitor who is evi
dently a close observer said, "There
are more "Blg-to-do" Negroes, in
Kansas City without any visible
means of support than in any City I
ever visited." Well was he jealous
or was he right?
