Special to The Dallaa Express.
Washington, D. C, April 3. Plan
of a definite and far-reaching nature
have been formulated by Dr. J. Stan

, preaidunt of Howard University, that
will establish at the nation's capital
' a truly effective instrumentality for
lor the higher education of the Ne

nounced at a recent meeting of the
Board of Trustee and unanimously
adopted by that body, which la to
be put into execution during the
coming year. Positive steps have
been taken to build on historic How

lofty purpose, concelvod more than
Jialf a century ago by the Immortal
Con. Oliver O. Howard, to lift the
Colored millions of America to the
highest moral and intellectual plane
and to provide a permanent agency
for the development of race LEAD
ERS. A Program "Evolutionary and Uvolu.
liouarr."
"The system I have proposed, and
with which the Board Is In thorough
and sympathetic accord, will be evo
lutionary," Mild Dr. Durke to a press
representative in a recent Interview.
And, It will be all tbat for Dr. Dur
kee is a great big man, with a big
brain,, wbo has the courage and ca
pacity to do big things In a big

Since the coming of Dr. Durkee
Just a few months ago at tbe In
sistent call of thouKblful friends of
Howard University, he has given the
needs of the school tbe closest study,
and It is the general fouling that
the broad-gauged recommendations
he has made will 'Ultimately meet
tbe demand of this exacting age for
LEADERS pathfinders In all the
complex phases of the life of the Ne

According to the plan outlined,
the University will be reorganized
on the Junior college plan, with sen

two yearn' work la tbo Junior college
the student will enter one of the
-senior nchools for special training,
along lines of individual preferment
and adaptability. Tbo senior schools,

tne scope of tbe Institution by add
ing four schools to the six vhicb
already existed.
In order that the University may
take its proper place among the
higher institutions of learning, and
to concentrate its energies on Teal
University training, tlfo secondary
work done by the Academy and Com
morical School will be discontinued
at the end of the present school
year. It Is expected that the work
of the Academy can be turned over
to some other Institution, with ade
quate facilities. The work of the
Coumierlcal School la to be rained to
a college grade I; the new School
of Commerce and Finance, leading
to a degree and giving a worth-whilo
business education that will be In
keeping with the modorn require
ments of he commercial world. A
military unit for instruction In mili
tary science and tacts has - been
authorized by the War Department
and this will offer another discipline.
A fine gymnasium and athletic flold
are to be provided, and a University
Press is to be developed. A Sum
mer School is also among the many
new features to be Introduced. Classes
will be maintained at a full roster
and no time will be wastod on doubt
ful experimentation with classes be
low the normal standard. To recruit
the school aiemberfcblp a system of
allotting scholarships .to accredited
secondary schools In generous meas
ure will be adopted, and many ex
cellent schools giving a limited train
ing, 111 serve as valuable "feeders"
to the University. It will thus be
seen that the University Idea is
brought to a high level, and that
the essential secondary work of our
youth is not endangered. On the con
trary, 11 will be strengthened. '
Now Offices treated and a Promotion
System Adopted.
Three new offices are created under
the new system, the necessity for
which has long , been recognized.
These are a Dean of Men a Dean of
Womov and ReHsJrar, . Their du
ties "are" suit-explanatory ana their
services will bring a helpful impetus
Into the life of the school. The mo
rale of tbe teaching force will be
vitally Improved by a much-needed
definite system of promotion. Upon
the recommendation of Dr. Durkee
a graduated scale of salaries has
been adopted, with automatic in
creases end advancement in rank,
as an Incentive for greater efficiency.
stricter moral character and heartier
co-operation In the ideals for which
tbo school stands, for upon these
qualities retention and promotion are
based. Teacbors are thus enabled to
go at their work with a ch-it .rf ulness,

purpose than ever before.

It may be stated here, with all pos

Whiles Protest Erection of Ne
gro Hospital in Toledo
(The Ansoclated Negro Press).
Toledo, O., April 3. The building
of a hospital on Rummel's Island,
for the benefit ot Toledo Negro citi
zen's is to be fought in the courts
by adjacent property owners on the
grounds of "encroachments of unde
sirable persons and project" While
there is no special desire to have a
"Jim Crow" hospital established here,
the movement will doubtless be push
ed because of the attitlde of certain
whites, to whom It la stated that
the people to be most benefited were
not so "undesirable" when facing
Oerman guns.
Enit Scott Takings Care of
the Many1 Complaints of
the Negro Officers.
Washington, D. C, April 3. The
subjoct of the treatment of the Ne
gro officers and men In the army is
recelvingthe attention of the War
Department, through Special Assis
tant Lmmett J. Scott and others.
Complaints are pouring in from
many sources, and the men in every
section are say ln?r things that sound
very unpleasant, In the light of the
cause for which the men fought.
It Is an open fact that all the
complaints are not co Jned to Negro
soldiers. White Northern soldiers both
in America and Fraiiae are stating
that they received very unfair, and
In some cases, brutal, treatment from
Southern white officers.
' That there wore some white officers
who were inclined to lok at the ser
vice of the American Negroes in the
fair and just light to which the sit
uation k entitled, hundreds of them
favored every plan of - segregation
and discrimination known to the
calondar and were it not for the
saving Influence of Oen. Pershing and
a fow others to whom tbe Injustices
finally found their way, here would
be much mce unfairness to record.
In the Bettor cf promotion, the
Negro officers have sv 'ered most un
fortunately. As a matter ot fact,
the majority of them were summarily
relieved from the commands it the
romp.nnios to which they were at
tached whon going over to France
and white officers were put In Jiilr
places. All sorts of storloa are be
ing told about tbe various kind of
"tests" to which Negro officers were
put In order to prove their efficiency,
and If the least flaw could bo found,
they wore relieved,
It to staled by some men that
where roglmenta were omcered by
Negro men, orgaulzed propaganda
was resorted to by groups of white
in order to stir up feeling between
and mm.
The true state of rffalrs Is grad
ually coming to light, and It to be
lieved iit some of tho;t responsible
for the treUmeut wl.l bo called to
an accounting.

Many thoughtful, progressive- men
and women, representing the very

become familiar during the past few
years with some of the wonderful
discoveries of Dr. George W. Carver,
the Negro wizard of agricultural re

had caught the vision ot a greater
Industrial South.

Disciple of ilowker T. Washington.
Dr. Carver has also carried on
extensive and valuable researches
in such common materials as sweet
potatoes, tomatoes. Boy beans, and
peanuts, to mention just a few lines
of his valuable research work in ag
riculture. He has released for public use
through the publications of the Tus
kegee Institute Experiment Station,
of which he is the director, many
valuable receipts receipts bo good
and so popular that they are fre
quently quoted by agricultural and
home-economics journals.
. He has discovered many unexpect
ed properties In the common things
which are found in great abundance
on Southern farms.
He has done this pioneer work with
no thought of . personal profit or ex
ploitation. In his attitude of public
service he is a true disciple of
Booker T. Washington, bis discover
er and lifetime friend.
The Lot of Discoveries.
When asked about the attitude of
the public . toward some of his timely
discoveries, he said, with a knowing
smile and a bright gleam in his
eyes. . -
"Discoveries, you know, must pass
through several stages-three at
least each one of which is impor
tant and quite natural. '
"The first is tho 'knocking' stage.
Any new article that is offered to tho
public must meet certtiu hostile crit
ics who Biiy: "This thing is no good;
the' man who puts "thia claim for
ward Is Very foolish we don't want
this new Tangled thing; the old
thinsa are good enough for us. Any
new article must meet successfully
all the hostile tests. It must prove
its superiority.
'Then follows, a stage of total
apathy, when everybody apparently
conspires to remain silent. Those
who know the facts concerning the
discovery and know nothing against
it just keep quiot or $ay, 'Let this
new thing die a natural death.
Those who don't know tbe facts,- lose
their Interest in opposing the discov
ery. -
, "There always comes to a really
valuable and significant -llscovery,
howevor, that Interesting third stage
a stage In which many people, in
cluding the former critics and apu
thetio obeervers, - tumblu over each
other trying to boost the discoverer,
his discovery, and everything con
nected with the project Then the
commercial development takes care
of itslf." ,
