A selfish or a careless .Christmas gift i3 worth no more than a sel fish or a cureless thouaht to the receiver, po mutter what its cost in money may have been.' That is wby many a youngster and many a grown up also, finds Christmas day a time -of bitter disillusionment and-disappointment. . 'resents bought in selfinh hope of return, or In careless fulfillment of obligation, or even for the fleeting pleasure of the moment can never bring real appreciation to the re ceiver or real pleasure to the- giver. For they lack the' essential elements of "good will'' and thought for the future. None of us has had so much that we do not desire those dear to us to have more. None of us has lived eo successfully that we do not de sire others to avoid the mistakes we have made. The successful Christ mas gifts are those which are based Hot on the selfish pleasure of the moment but on thought 'and care for the future. None of us knows the future, but each of us hopes for the future for those near to us. S;-arcel7 a Christmas gift Is dis patched in this country that is not accompanied by at leant a perfunc tory HOPE for the future. But it is possible to give gifts which carry not only hope but an ASSURANCE for the future, gifts that develop character, that inspire success that promote independence. Yon can give your youngster a HABIT that is worth more than money. You can give them a training that Bhould be part of the equipment of every American. You can give them a pro tection against misfortune which will last them all their lives, AND THEY WILL LIKE THEIR PRES ENTS. What Is more, you can make your presents cost what you will, and you can buy them at any post office. All you need do i ask for Government Savings Securities. No matter bow slim or bow bulky your purse, they will fit it No matter of you can a (ford no more than a 25 cent Thrift Stamp pasted on its card you can do as much toward giving your boy or girl the habit of thrift, and safe Investment, as the man who gives bis children a $100 Treasury Savings Certificate. You can start your youngster on the way to financial independence and safety with a $5 W.ir Savings Stamp as well as With a $1000 Liberty Bond. 'When you give those sound se curities, you put love and thought and good will into your gift as well as iiiuney and you can give happi ness for the future as well as for tb present. will fit it.

It is hardly possible that much sigrojficance will be accorded the allcgred speech of the late American radical writer John Reed, before the Moscow meeting of the Communist Internation ale in which he ured the Reds to enlist the aid of American Ne groes in the spread of their propaganda. In his speech he is al lecred to have declared that the American Negro offered a fertile field for such propaganda. . . Dcscribincr the position of the Negro in the United States, especially in the Southern States, Negro offers a two-fold opportunity to tne spread 01 commun ism in this country; first, a strong race and social movement, second, a strong race and social movement, and second, a strong proletarian movement. Race consciousness has steadily increased among the Negroes, he said, "a certain section of whom are now carrying on a propaganda in favor of armed revolt against the whites," and Socialistic ideas are rapidly developing among the blacks employed in industrial establishments. y Describing the status of the Negro in America, Reed assert ed that desnite the constitutional right to the ballot in the Southern States, Negroes were this right, and that the use of aters existed in all parts ot the "This separation of the Negro from the wnite is cauea tne 'jim crow system, and the clergy of the Southern churches teach fhnr tWn ia also a heaven where the 'iim crow' system is in rvnpratinn " Reed declared. In so far as Mr. Reed's description of the general condition nf thfl Npcro in America is concerned, we must give nun credit for havino- correctlv stated our the South is "terrible."

Mr. Reed made no mistake. His judgment did ere greatly however in its supposition that we would or could welcome any communistic or Bolshevistic propaganda. It is not possible nor probable that such will ever be the case. Bolshevism and its method of operation do not appeal to ua in the least. We are satisfied with bur What we are not satisfied laws are administered and the a great class of American inhabitants m their adherence to a lal lncions thflorv of racial sunerioritv. As we see it our lot as a group has always been and still is extremely unfortunate but even so, we would hesitate much be fore exchanging it for the present lot of the Russian peasant. We have seen and have been informed of Bolshevism at its best and it does not now and never will appeal to us.

' Wp have no reason to feel aihlp of finnl arr-omnlishment but Bolshevism has few commendatory qualities. Class solidarity of which Bolshevik leaders speak so highly has in this country been responsible for the wall of prejudice which has caused us to suffer so. N ' " , We would rather encourage the continuation of the efforts of our own best thinkers, working with our fairer minded neigh bors who are applying themselves with such increasing earnest ness toward mutual co-operation in bringing to pass a scheme of greater justice and more equitable dealing. ; We firmly believe the future Will mark a steady change of public opinion toward a platform which, like the platform adopted by the Christian leaders of the South a few days ago.

We abhor class spirit. We feel rather that the final success of America and Americans will depend upon, the extent to which every individual and every class demands its rights but, performs its duties, realizing absolutely that because of their inter-dependence, mutual co-operation is essential to success. Such ' is not the creed of the Bolshevists. ' - A NATIONAL BANKING PROGRAM. The following dispatch from the Associated Negro Press, Washington correspondent is of great interest: . Ever since 1912, when the National Negro Business League met in Chicago, Illinois, the Negro banking institutions of '' the country have been seeking the formation of banking affiliations which would put them in line with the great banking establish ments of the country on a basis entirely satisfactory to all con cerned. A banquet was given in honor of the representatives of the Colored banking institutions at Chicago, in 1912 at the fa mous Palmer House but nothing definite came out of the move ment. At the recent meeting of the National Negro Business Lea gueheld in Philadelphia, August, 1920, Dr. Emmett J. Scott, Secretary of the National Negro Business League, keeping m mind the efforts which have been made during the past few years to put Colored banking institutions in touch with the great captains of industry," invited ' certain representatives of New York banking interests to meet with a group of Colored bankers in Philadelphia. . - ", . At that conference last August a full, free, and informal in terchange of opinions took place. Out of the -conference grew the decision to pursue the effort to a final conclusion so that Color ed banks may not be handicapped in the future as they ; have been in the past by lack of sympathetic help and co-operation at the hands of the larger banking interests of the country. Nego tiations are now under way looking to closer affiliations of this character and the effort is being supported by some of the most important of the Colored and white banking institutions of the country. A capital fund of One Million Dollars will be used to finance the program. Full announcement of the details will be from New York within the next few days. Application, for char ter has already been made by groups representing the various interests involved. " ' Such an announcement is inspiring to our financial leaders who have heretofore been handicapped by a lack of such finan cial connections as would facilitate their growth and service. : Our banks are the guardians of our business. They are es sential to the maintenance and formation of all financial ven tures. - - . Such a program if carried to final accomplishment will open up avenues' to an economic development hitherto scarcely able to be imagined. The acquittal of Lowe by the Fort Worth jury is only fur ther proof that those citizens of Arlington who prevented mob action acted as became real citizens. Tho.se who maintain that doubling of telephone rates. A Negro saved a white man about is fair play.

Turn THE MIRROR OF PUBLIC OPINION y THE JiKGBO BEFORE THE LAW. There can be little inducement, confidence in the laws by which we Justice- which is being meted out to Wben the issue is as between a sion muat finally rest with a Jury rarely ever any result xsave that which nis is uniformly true in cases tried imous sentiment favors putting the Negro at a disadvantage for purposes of keeping him "the under dog." To go further, if one studies some of the results and decisions in the light of the testimony, one must conclude that the testimony of Negro witnesses, even when confirmable and con sistent with other circumstances surrounding the case is generally dis credited or given less weight than that of the white men. It is impossible to explain the unwarranted decisions in many cases save alone upon the gen eral assumption that the Negro must be "kept down" "kept in his place" and that It would be unsafe to convict murdering him. . . . ' in our courts there are, as everyone knows, countless cases of violence between white men and black which lands them in courts. In only the most flagrant cases, and in the rarest Jurisdictions, is a verdict ever ren dered against a white offender. In the great majority of the cases the Negro bears the burden whether he to justify the assault or killing say that the Negro made a threat or white offender can Justify the shooting with such a defense. It is done Most Negroes are shot in the back, or suddenly upon slightest provo cation and before they might defend themselves. This , is the usual his tory of Negroes killed or beaten by a wnite man was acquitted of siraignt tnrougn tne back in our courts here this week. The white phy sicians testifying showed that the Negro victim was shot "straight through' there being no defection of the bullet. Several witnesses testified the Ne gro was fleeing when shot down. The accused claimed that the Negro reach ea tor a gun and the shot was fired was consistent with the bullet which the victim? ' . These occurrences frequent and to submission. They breed o disrespect and those who are charged with the ment and distrust of their oppressors.' ' And why not? Are not these laws made by white men? Co they not set up the standards of epual Justice, only to brush them aside where Negroes are concerned? This is a white man's civilization; he makes the laws by which we are to be governed. He suspended them, when the issue is be tween the races. v A Negro-runs afoul; maybe in iately the young and inexperienced districts rush up with their clubs and pistols to beat and destroy. Ohter white men rush up with their ready pistols to augument the excitement and disorder, and soon riot is1 in the air.. turbances converted into most serious communities often embracing many harmless and innocent. This condition cannot long go on in the serious way it Is going, The thinking people must take a hand In the affairs of the people as they affecfc the courts and the handling of Negroes generally by public officers. The good people, those with black men as well as white, must realize that terror and intimidation do not breed the element of good citizenship in men. These methods trans form good men into abandoned and And lynching, the great bane of the These good men, law abiding and at heart must restrain the reckless Three Negroes at a time in Georgia wnoie community of bouses, churches shows that this section is still as lawless and as depraved as anything in Russia otj elsewhere.

During the past two or three years, things have changed considerably for the worse, and Negroes have suffered much at the hands of the police and on the street cars, due to the reckless sitions. The courts are reasonably satisfactory in so far as matters of impor tance are in the hands of trained officials and attaches, Wherever, how ever, the Jury comes in to decide the burden falls upon the helpless, defendless, Negro before the bar ' of Justice, except in rarest cases. This "general" state of mind of gro, and the acquiesence in it of the people,' presents an alarming state of oor present problems, and gives us matter is so grave that something Negroes will live in consistent fear ot THE EVERLASTING STAIN. , A dying and desperate political party clutches at the straw of race hatred as its last gasping hope.

The infamy of this taint was deemed to be more detestable than the murderous brand upon the forehead of Cain. It ' was thought to out weigh in public estimation the entire catalogue of Intellectual, moral and political virtues. To charge an American with theft, arson or murder would be a mild accusation as compared to this. The time was set with dramatic cleverness. The iron must be struck while it is hot. There must be no margin of time to refute the charges or to reconcile' public senti ment. The cry of Wolf! Wolf! on the first alarm, stampedes the crowd, even If there is no wolf. But the bungling dastard did not know his game. Righteous strategy triumphed over dastardly cunning. With amazing ce-' lerity of action the charge was refuted as soon as made. The dastardly deed redounds to the shame of the doer. Never before and, let us hope, never again will any political party sink to such a low level if infamy. Blessed are ye when men shall revile you, and say all manner of evil against you falsely. With righteous indigntaion against the methods of the character assasin, the Amrican people with all but one voice sweeps Hard ing into the White House, assured that his purity of blood is as unblem ished as his spotlessness of character. , " The country is safe, the Republican of the white race is secured. " ' But what of the Negro? Is he human pride and sensibilities? To him the defense is, if anything, more insulting than the attack.- Why should it be considered more henlous than any crime to possess a trace of Negro blood? I doubt whether any race shice human civilization began has ever been placed under such a ban of opprobrium. It is the boast of statesmen and men of renown . that they carry in their veins a blend of Indian blood. But one drop that flows from African veins vitiates ten times its own volume of any other strain. Against this assumption the Negro rebels with all the ardor and indignation of which his nature is capable. Can the Negro be expected to share in the derogation of his own blood? Is his color of his own choosing? He is wholly guiltless of the stain for which he is stigmatized. Pigmentation affects the color of the body, but not the quality of the soul. Were Dumas and Douglas and Dunbar accursod of God and unworthy of honor and es teem because of their sable hue? Shall we be expected to give higher meed of glory to Plato and Shakespeare, and Jesus because their skin was white? Perish the thought! Such , self-abasement would compromise the Negro's self respect and hypothecate all hope. The Ten Commandments nowadays, - for Negro people to have are governed, in view of the brand of Negroes in the courts.

They enjoy the wrestle and romp which the group suffKont and why not? We older people like to visit, like to get away from home and familiar scenes for a while:, it Is a rest and a pleasure. Our children then oupht to be allowed to visit and to receive visitors. They learn more rapidly the duties of good manners of the host or guest. The action of a visiting child can be presented, to your own child In a very vivid manner. If the little visitor comes In trentle and en Joys some pleasant play, you can note that your children rise to meet the ocealon. On the other hand, If nothing1 pleases the visitor but rough and . tumble play our child enter right in and you may look for dam ages. There are many parents who never leave vlnitlng children without super vision. This parent must ever be on the alert and keep the play directed In wholesome channels. .Thl take time and little else can be accom plished. Beware of lettlnir vnnr rhll. dren visit where they are put out to piuy una no one comers. Then, H the Visits of children renulra th. Hm. of the parents, there must be some set rule for visiting children. There ouKni 10 De a 1 lime limit to the visit. Don't go off to shop or to club and leave your child on your neighbor without some definite ar rangement, especially if he ha chil dren. One mother had a vacation rule that no child ronlii vlait h.r children before 2 o'clock In the after noon nor were her children allowed out before that hour. She found out that she was enabled to cet hnr work done In the mornings and that she . had the companionship of her own children for a while. Now that school has begun she ha reserved an afternoon hour for the study pe riod of her children who need some help with their school work when no visitor is welcome. Friday afternoon has proved the best time for visit ing since there are no lessons to be prepared and on Saturday they must assist her with, the chores. When the cniiuren ere or the opposite sex and they all play together. Eome one must ,ever be on guard. The boy will tease the girls and the girls tag the boys. The mother is repeatedly called to settle difficulties and this often proves a great annoyance. She must send the boys to some one else or to tne streets or she must use tact and Ingenuity in devislnor nliiv for the the separate groups. Parents should (ii wcu 8 s ine good and bad points of the visitor with thoir children. They readily grasD which Is the nrefernhln code of conduct, then encourage them to emulate or discard as 'the case may warrant. We should be care ful to have the children make their visits after the dinner hour. In fact, it Is a good plan to never let vnur children leave home until you have Bcrveq mem and have them under stand that it is bad manners to eat on a visit without a previous Invi tation. Jn large families it Is quite annoying to have company at the dinner hour, the mother keep busy enough trying to attend the wants of her own children, who either will' not stop to eat properly or bring confusion to what ought to be a plea sant family occurrence. I have known the father of the family to get up and leave his dinner because of the confusion of visiting children while the dinner was being served. , Parent should be kind to visiting children. If in the course of the visit any serious, wrong is committed, the parent should 'be advised and they should administer the proper pun ishment. One can never tell what a child may do . under certain con ditions. Recall your own childhood and the Instances when you meddled rorbldden things. Children must De taught and that Is the duty of pa rents. Never discuss a child's fault without having told his parents. They are often responsible and not the child. ) One mother' attitude In a neigh borhood will have untold Influence. If you lead out with some1 set rules as your children haDlts, you win note that other parents will do like wise. Never hesitate to kindly send a child home either when his act Ion or those of your own children do not conform to your established Idea of the proper conduct of children. Good parents Will thank you and the punishment accoraea your cnnaren will have a telling effect. , Aunt Pat' Forum.
