We do not criticize our pastors
whmi we say that In the. majority
of cases, there sermons contain very
little that is of value to us laour
every day life and that often our
seeming lack of response to their
most carefully prepared discourses
Is dua to the fact that they deal in
theories to far removed from our
dally lives to be resolved into prac
tical schemes of. existence.
One often hears as be leaves
church, expressions which bear us
out In this contention.
We, above all people need prac
tical sermons. Our churches are the
common meeting place for ' our
masses their only one. And It Is
reasonable to suppose that many
fine opportunities for affecting the
lives of their congregations ,for
good are lout by our pastors because
they fail to see any direct connec
tion between home . owning, good
schools, voting privileges, thrift
movements, better business and the
kingdom of Heaven.
We have as was said left too
much for God to do for us, forget
ting, probably because of our teach
ing, that we are already equipped
by God for helping ourselves.
We would heartily urge our pas
tors as a class to besin to think
more In such terms. They may be
certain that they will in no way
alienate the sympathies of their con
gregations by so doing. The most
successful sermon Is the one which
eaunea the greatest response to it
in practical service.

ON CUTTING SOUTHERN REPRESENTATION.
A bill has been introduced in
gressman Tinkham urging an investigation of Southern voting
conditions with a view either to cutting down Southern repre
sentation in Congress or to forcing Southern States in which dis
crimination is rife to remove those laws and usages which for
so long have caused the disfranchisement of a large group of
their citizens. , - ' -..
Since the beginning of the movement to reduce Southern
representation or to bo reform the
tion of the various states is based

which it will be received by those
There are some who seem to

representation to be cut they will

How true this conjecture is
this measure is passed and an investigation should result in fur
ther action. . .
We can however be fairly sure that the, measure will be
pushed as far 'as is possible by Northern States which are most
vitally affected by the unfair and unequal representation result
ing from the present condition. A fair idea of their sentiment
as expressed editorially may be gained from an excerpt from the
Boston Traveler of Dec. 7, which says in part:
"Vast possibilities for the stirring of sectional feeling be
tween the South and the North are doubtless wrapped up in the
proposal of Congressman George H. Tinkham to urge an investi
gation of the disfranchisement of voters in the South. Neverthe
less, if it be true that the letter and spirit of the 14th amend
ment to the constitution are violated by some of the states the
facti should be presented to Congress and suitable action taken.
. The 14th amendment, it will be recalled, provides not only
that all persons born or naturalized in the United States shall be
regarded as unworthy of the least thought as respects a remuner
portion of its male citizens the right to vote, shall be penalized
by a proportionate cit in the number of its representatives in
Congress. It is more or less an open secret that this provision of
the Constitution has been evaded if not actually flouted by some
of the states, which have contrived by "grand-father clauses"
and other enactments to deprive most -of the Negroes of the vot
ing privilege. Hitherto Congress has pretty much overlooked the
failure of southern states to live up to the 14th amendment, and
has itself violated the amendment by not administering the pen
alty plainly laid down.
Precisely how much wisdom or justice there was in granting
the franchise to the whole Colored race immediately upon its
emancipation, is still a debatable question. That fact, and the de
sire in latter years to have the old animosities of the civil war re
placed by a national and fraternal spirit, no doubt account for the
hesitancy of the North about demanding full enforcement of the
14th amendment. 1 .
The T4th amendment is the only one in the entire nineteen
that specifies a penalty for non-enforcement or, if you please,
an alternative. And the alternative is fundamentally right. The
number of representatives a state is entitled to have should de
pend somewhat closely upon its voting population. It is obvious
ly unfair, for example, that 62,000 voters in Alabama should send
ten representatives to Congress when 299,000, . or nearly five
times as many, voters in Minnesota are allowed to send only the
As the number of votes each state has in the electoral col
lege is directly dependent on the number of representatives, we
have a situation in which the states of Alabama, Arkansas, Flo
rida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Caro
lina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia, which cast a total vote of 1,
870.000 for President in 1916, have 126 electoral votes, while 1
706,000 voters in the state of New York have only 45 electoral
votes. ,: ' . ' '
Such discrepancies presumably are due in large part to the
limitation of the Negro vote in the southern states. If those
states wish to continue the limitation, they are at liberty to do
so on condition that they lose part of their representation.
Now that a reapportionment of representation, based upon
the census of 1920, is to be worked out, the question may as well
be squarely faced whether the 14th amendment is to be enforced
or to remain more or less of a dead letter.
Form the above statement it

it for no other reason that they are seeking an equal apportion
ment of political power.

Constitutional Convention is that of framing new articles so a3 to

Court of the United States. Practically the same law in Oklahoma

casion ever arose the Supreme Court would declare invalid any
federal election held under the clause. The so-called grandfather
clause has worked satisfactorily up to the present time. A test
has never come, and it has served to keep the Negro out of poli
tics. But the issues are too important and results too far-reach-inor

CONCERNING THE MINIMUM WAGE. '
The Progressive Citizen of Texarkana in discussing the wil
lingness of the Industrial Welfare
women on it3 minimum wage scale says:
It seems to the Progressive Citizen that no class of servants
are more worthy of the benefits of this recent ruling than the
women who do the drudgery work

they have had no one at court to speak for them, and have been
regarded as unworthy of the least

Prehistoric Chalder L
.-.'' . '
(By Drusilla Dunjee Houston, President Oklahoma Training School.)
History tells us that the foundation of Chaldea, ancient Balylonla was
almost coincident with Egypt In fact, in the beginning of the world, they
were sister colonies of a parent empire. Cushltes created Chaldea;
5000 B. C it was a civilized state. Ancient Babylonia was a division of
Cusha-Dwlpa, tho' Cushlte empire of Ethiopians of Pre-historio times.
Ancient authorites tell us that tho first drganlzed government of the
world and the first dominion over the various tribes, was of the Cushlte race.
Today archaeologists are unearthing indisputable proofs of the extreme
antiquity of Chaldea. They have unearthed Babylon evidences proving that
under her oldest cities, lay the foundations of other cities, which stretch
back into the antcdeluvlan world. This subsantiates the old legend of the
'Deluge' upon the Babylonian tablets, that the supervisors of the Flood re
turned and rebuilt upon the old foundation of Babylon, which of an earlier
name was destroyed in the general overthrow.
Berosos, a Chaldean priest of the temple of Bel, wrote a history of
Chaldea in nine books. He gave the oldest traditions of the origin of the
human i race. His works perished but fragments remain in the writings
of the Greek, Hebrew and Roman Fathers. We can no longer claim that
tradition does not stand for. actual facts px the life of a race. Men once
claimed that ancient Troy was a myth; hut the archaeologists of today have
unearthed the Troy of Greek tradition. In Crete proff are being laid bare,
that the remembrance of earlier ages were acurate and true.
Berosus tells us, of the earlier ages, when a multitude of men of va
rious tribes inhabited Chaldea. They lived there without any order like
animals. Bel, the god 'of Chaldea saw the frultfulness of the land. He sent
to them from the sea a fearful fish by name of Oan. Its image half man
and half fish Is still preserved. It represents men coming to them by sea
in ships. Just as the first untutored inhabitants saw this wonder, men trav
eling as fish through the sea, so the first impression remained unchanged
as the tradition passed on down to after generations.
The tradition continues, "This animal came at morning up out of the
sea and passed the day with men;, but it took no nourishment, and at sun
set went again Into the ocean and there remained for the night The fish
taught men language and science, the harvesting of seeds and fruits and
rules for boundaries of land, the mode of building ' cities and temples,
arts and writing and all that pertains to. the civilization of man. This
early tradition and the image of the Fish God represents a historical hap-,
pening in life of undeveloped and untutored people.
The Cushlte Etlioplans were a maritime people, who had long possessed
the arts. The Fish-God represents a ship bringing the civilized Ethiopian,
who taught the arts unknown to the aborigines of , Chaldea. It shows that
civilization did not originate in Chaldea, but sprang from the Pre-historic
race that proceeded them. Berosus tells us that the Chaldean traditior
placed the birthplace originally as the
deep antiquity was the seat of Ethioplc culture.
There supremacy in the early ages was everywhere marked by progress
in the industries and in science, united with myths and traditions peculiar
to the Ethiopian mind. Three ships appeared upon the coasts of Pre-historic
Chaldea, bringing to them the art of
onized Egypt, so she colonized Chaldea, India, and Italy, introducing re
ligion, science, manners, customs and art They pushed back the original
inhabitants, afterwards the 8emitic tribes and their language everywhere
except in the West which afterwards became Assyria.
WHITE MAVS CITILIZATIOX TUMBLIXG.
No man who scans the columns of our daily papers .and reads of the
carnage in England, -the uprising in Ireland, the horhocides, suicides, lynch
Ings and burnings in America, can dispute the fact that the white man's
civilization is tumbling. : . .
The bloody scenes that have attended the fall of seven 'countries Which
have stood out as leaders in the world's civilization are engulfing two of
the leading nations of today, namely, England and America. No wonder
men of thought are beginning to discuss the domination of the white races
by the Colored races. This is due to the fact that civilization is not built
upon carnage and bloodshed, but upon Christianity and justice. The his
toric events of Rome, Greece and all the other decadent nations that have
fallen from their cynical methods are only synonymous to the conditions
that exist today in America and England.
Nero threw the young maidens into the arena to be devoured by lions
lo order to -satiate and bring pleasure to himself and the Gladiators who
surrounded him, but his acts were no more base than the mob of Mississ
ippi, who walked into the temple of justice and defiled the sinewy arms
of , the law by taking from the court the victim who was on trial and drag
ging him through the streets until his body became inert In' this, the home
cf the brave and the land of the free, and the country which boasts of
its xeligIous status, JHla acts were no more jrlie lhanthe acts of the hood
lums of England who are causing anarchy to run rampant over the coun
try that has become more proud of its station In . the world than even
And yet while the white races are commitlng these woeful crimes for
the review of civilization, Japan, Africa, the Negro and all of the darker
races are striving to become more enlightened and are drawing nearer to
Him who said, "I am the way, the truth and the light" The signs of the
times that forecast the. falling of Rome and Greece are vividly portrayed
by the acts of the mobs In England and America. Here upon this soil where
,the Pilgrims moved their patrimony in
quility men are destroying the very principles that these noble men and
women came to enuciate by acts of violence which will inevitably dethrone
the Anglo-Saxon race, which is fast retrograding here and. abroad.
Tho white raco has been alloted the task of making the world better,
and so was the Egyptian race, and when the Egyptian race failed God
placed them in the malestrora of the world and that is exactly what is
happening to the white white race today.
No race or set of people can boast of their superiority or hold superi
ority intact that tramples upon the laws of He who came to redeem the
world. "I came to save and not destroy the world," was the solemn ex
hortaton of the Nazarine. And et a large number of the white, race who
boast of their superiority and their divine right, to leadership in the shap
ing ot the world's destinies are going diametrically opposite to what they
claim they are dedicated to do. They have become so busy prating about
superiority and trying to hold other races in subjection until their allotted
task has been overlooked. , Nearly two thousand years ago Christ thundered
forth the following warning to all the world: "Verily, I say unto you that
whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap." This is Just as true to
day as it was then, and neither man or races can violate this sacred dec
laration without suffering the inevitable consequence. -Times-Plaindealer.
HOW ABOUT COLORED OFFICERS.
Chief of Staff Major General March In his annual report states the na
tion will need two hundred and eighty thousand men and nearly eighteen
thousand officers for its peace time army. To obtain the men, he continues
will be easy, but to obtain the officers will be most difficult Thto problem,he
aays, has been rendered more difficult by the delay in the enactment of
legislation governing the reorganization of the army. "We ask the next Con
gress, which will be overwhelmingly Republican, and President-elect Hard
ing to see to it that black America gets its Just quota of both officers and
men In the new leglslalon. Not only is that race entitled to this by reason
ot its numbers, but It is entitled to more than this by reason of its valiant
and tal service In time of war as well as peace. Neither the next Con
gress nor the next President need any argument to recognize the profound
wisdom of having a goodly number of black men In the service of Uncle
Sara in the trying days to come. We do feel It necessary, however, to ln
fcrrn both that the black American will not be content to serve without
the right to promotions from the ranks recognized. The black race will
no longer be content to have only privates in the United States Army.
There is no more flagrant wrong done the twelve million black Americans
by the American Government than the practical denial of 1 black citizens
rights as officers in the army. The World War proved, if nothing else,
to the Southern Administration at Washington not only the loyalty of black
men to the Stars and Stripes, but the loyalty and efficiency of black officers,
and the loyalty of black men to black officers. These facts have been over
whelmingly attested by a thousand reports. Nor needs General March to
lament his Inability to get such officers. Much ol his difficulty In. the ob
