We want to say to the family if
Knight Fuller had not taken that
cruel fever, he might have lived a
few years longer, might have lived
to suffer much agony , as you now
suffer for him. In your present

if you could call him back to life
you wouid gladly do so. Perhaps the
time may come and we hope it will
when you shall think cf him ps one
who has escaped much suffering,

Ix)ui3 G. Gregory, one of the travel
ing teachers or lecturers of the
Cabal Movement, who is making a
tour of the sixteen southern states,
ha" been spending the week in Dal
las. His schedule has included ad
dresses in the Congregational C. M.
K , and St. James A. M. E. churches
on Sunday. On Mondav morning he
spoke to tho high school students
end. in the evening lectured at St.
Paul Baptist church. On Tuesday
be addressed the Baptist Ministerial
Union at New Zion church, lecture I
at Mt. Rose church and in the com
munity center In the evening. On
Wednesday he met In group of pro
gressive thinkers at the home of Dr
and Mrs. Dyson on State street.
As the Banal Movement Is new to
most of the people of Dallas, these
addresses and lecture? have awaken
ed unusual interest and enthusiasm.
The object of the Bahai Movement,
says Mr. Gregory, is to arouse the
spirit of unity, co-operation and
agreement among all races and clash
es and to destroy human hatred and
prejudice. Its founder was Baha
O'LLAH, a Persian nobleman, who
because of his liberal and progressive
ideals, made many sacrifices, spend
ing the greater part of his life in
prison and exile. His principles,
enunciated sixty years ago, are now
taking active form throughout the
Abdul Baha, tho servant of God
is the present directing head of the
movement. Like his father, his life,
too. has been one of great service
and sacrifice During his visit tc
America in 1912, he addressed many
gatherings, including the Lake Mon
honk Peace Conference. Ho told his
friends about the coming of the
Great War. which the activity of
America would hrinr to an end.
The Bahai Movement 'vis a pro

world into harmony. Its universal

The Abandonment of Prejudices.

lem. The Center of the Covenant or
the Power of the Holy Spirit
This great movement has brought
into loving unity, service and co
operation, a great concourse of peo
ple representing various races.; na
tions and religions "Its teachings,"
as Abdul Baha says, "are universal
unselfish service, sustaining our
pledges and ever toiling with the
one purpose in mind Which wtH-raise
the morale of the young men and
boys of Dallas and close the wide
way of immortality.
The New Year is here, righteous
resolutions should be made for the
good of the young manhood, boy
life and community life, and not be
dissolved In a few flimsy moments.
The Y. M. C. A. spirit speaks for

this direction will augment the work

COLORED Y. M. C. .A BRAXCH AM)
It may be a matter of interest to
those concerned in the progress of
the Y. M. C. A., work among men
and boys, when it is known that
Dallas for the first time in many
years of hard work and persistent
toil is now recognized by the local
and international committees as a
branch of the City Y. M. C. A. This
is Indeed a long and profitable step
in the local Colored work of Dallas.
It rifts the dark clouds and brings
the dawn of a new day for "Y" ac
tivities as well as permanent work
among the men and boys of our race.
It gives protection and back bone
to the organization, places it on a
basis of real success.
In larger cities where Y. M. C. A.'s
were so badly needed for the pro
tection of the moral and physical
condition of Colored men and boys,
branches have been organized where
ever the "Y" spirit was manifested,
backed by the local Y. M. C. A. In
such cases where this congenial' co
operation existed no. branch has fail
ed. It would be impossible in this
brief article to relate the good ac
complished by these branches, the in
spiration received, vision of real life
and young men and boys saved
throueh the Christian influence 'of
the organization by its four-fold pro
gram. The Y. M. C. A.'s is not a
church but a Christian organization
managed and controled by Christ
ian men of good standing of some
evangelical church,, who profess to
live and publicly avow their faith
in Jesus. It is a constructive, for
mative organization, working to
shape, fashion and mold the lives of
young men and boys into noble
characters. After all when the truth
is clearly seen, it is greatness of life
that makes a nation or a race of
people great and greatness of life
blooms out of love, service and sac
rifice.) Long before the Portland
Maine, resolution in 1869 the ,Y. M.
C. A., was known and commanded
for service rendered regardless of
rare, color or creed.
Now such an oganization noble
in purpose and clean In its motives
which could not be less than Chris
tian comes -to co-operate with home,
church and school, that the young
manhood and boy life of Dallas
might be influenced and channelled
carefully in pleasant paths of clean
habits, clean spe-ach and clean sports,
that together with other movements
thnt are noble that uplift, that leal
and guide men and hoys to their
richest legacy noble manhood.
