PRESIDENT ELECT HARDING URGES FAIRNESS TO ALL IN MESSAGE TO THE SOUTH. Writes Article For Atlanta Constitution Which is Similar in Tone to Former State ments of His Belief in Justice For All. Washington, D. C, Jan. 27. "I have no message to the people of the Smith that T would not . utter to all the T'nlted States." Thin Is the heart motif of thi message which President elect Harding has written at the be quest of Clark Howell, editor of the Atlanta Constitution, to the South. Mr. Howell, It apDears, Is one of the prominent Southern men who Is very anxluos that a genuinely new era shall ho opened for the Southland. The Howell tvpe of Southerner affects to he heartily tired of the present tangled situation which, they say. Is operating to the great economic and business disadvantage of their , sec tion of the country. The "Race Problem" Is. of course, at the bottom of the entire situation. This Is acknowledged on all sides by all complexions of men. "What Is the Republican Party going to do. .'about the South' fears In relation to tne loudly expressed ambitions of Its present-day Negro citizens?" Is the ques tion uppermost in the minds of all Southerners. Hence the request of the editor of the Constitution. He, with other white Southerners want to know and want to know so sincerely that they can literally taste it. Mr. Hardlngs message has not evad ed the direct question, it is declared by prominent men here, black and white, but, In his effort he has clear ly called to the attention of the South the fact that the problems of the country are not sectional in cl"ter but apply, with equal force, to all, the Producer Says Race Pictures Have Creat Future Ahead. (fly A. N. P.) Chicago, Jan. 27. "Moving pictures have become one of the greatest vit alizing forces In race adjustment, and we are just beginning." Thus spoke Oscar Mlcheaux, the leading and most successful producer of the Race for the Associated Negro Press. Mr. Mlchaeux spent a few days in Chicago at the western opening of his latest and most pretentious pic ture. The Symbol of the Unconquered." This production demonstrates beyond question what the producer meant In his statement, and proves that there has been an arrival not only in the producing Field, but In the wide and necessary field of sentiment making, and a better understanding between the races. The story of the picture is a stirring tale of love and adventure In the great unsheltered and open northwest, but through it all are Impressive les sons on the folly of color, both with in and without the race. There Is one thing aside from the story interesting, that is I strive to demonstrate in all my piciures," said Mr. Mlcheaux, "and that is, it makes no difference what may be a person's color, or from where a person comes. If the heart is right, that's what counts, and success is sure." "The Symbol of The Unconquered" takes a significant thrust at the "more than 600,000" people in Ameri ca who with American blood in their veins are "passing for white." One of the most thrilling and real istic scenes Is that of the Ku Klux Klaners, who ride forth "on the stroke of twelve," to pursue their orgy of destruction and terror. Com ing at this time when there is an at tempt to revive this post-civil War force of Ignominy and barbarism, de nounced by the leading people of both races, in speech and editorials. North and South, the effect of dls gcest and determination, are heighten ed. Mr. Mlcheaux announce that his productions arc now belnp: sbown In all of the leading countries o Europe, including England. France. Italy, Sf.aln. and in America and the lead ing South American Republics. Ar rangement have practically been. con cluded to make at least one product ion a month, in which scores of the leading performers of the country are to be used., ' ' Georgia Farmers Forced to Flee From Homes by Riders.

Whv. no one has been able to answer Intf lUfrently. T'p.-to-rtntc 'the President elect hns said nothing which would Indicate his attitude in the matter of appointments outside of his cabinet and a good deal of this has been ten tative nature. - Henry Lincoln Johnson is on the trround, but be has nothing to say about the question of appointments.

Dr. Emmett Scott de clares he is not in politics and there fore has nothing to say about appoint ments. In fact everybody Is up in the air on this all-Important point and the result is a political fog so dense and thick one can almost cut with a knife. In the meantime, Mr. Harding has laid aside the affairs of state for the moment and Is playing Golf in the balmy climes and under the blue skies whsre Federal appointments are not heartily In evidence and the only Ne gro appointments that he has to worry about are the caddies who carry his clubs around the links.

It is doubtful if there has been another institution In 'the last decade that has attracted so many people of our Race from all the avenues of life, who are determined to the pioneers in big business in the North. .The industrial depression hit, some of our stockholders but many others are making application for these options ' as fast as they come In. I attribute our success in the aales campaign to the fact, primarily, that every one, whether a one share or a hundred share holder, has been treated alike. The first share was sold for thirty dollars and those who are fortunate enougn to get an option now are paying the same price. This same policy, which has brought us so much success during the organization of the company, will be religiousiy followed as long as I am at the helm of tho institution.

MAIS' CLUB WOULD BEAUTIFY DOUGLAS HOME. National Federation Declares Douglas Memorial Day. Drive to be Made for Needed Funds. (By A. N. P.) Buffalo. N. T., Jan. 27. A few we?ks ago, we learned that the name of Frederick Douglas had been rejected- for the Hall of Fame and many of our men and women felt very had because this Illustrious man had not been chosen. We have the opportunity to place his name forever In the Hall of Fame at. Anacostia, D. C, by mak ing his home ao beautiful that visi tors from all over the world will make a beaten path to "Cedar Hill." Four years ago the Trustee Board of the Douglas Memorial Home Bought the help of the National Association of Colored Women and in ten months we paid off the mortgage and saved the home from any further embarrass ment. We did not restore, we simply redeemed, then the war came on and we could not finish the Job. I called for ten thousand dollars for restora tion, and during these years, in ad dition to wiping off the mortgage, we have raised an additional sum to wards the restoration of four thous and dollars. To completely restore the home, at least six thousand dollars is needed, and today we are sending out what we hope will be the last ap peal to Club women and race men and women to fittingly celebrate the birthday of our illustrious Douglas by appropriate exercises, and by rais ing as large a sum as possible. Every organization or individual that contributes $25.00 will have ttieir name written upon the parchment that will hang forever upon the walls of the home, thus showing to our chil dren the nn of men and women who desired to make of Cedar Hill m.r Hall of Fame.

Richmond, Va., ' Jan.. 27. The Rev. Rilssell Bowie, D. D., rector of St Paul's Church, Richmond, Va., where Gen. Lee used to worship, recently appealed to his congregation to deal , wun race relations In that great I leader's snirlr i-nthei- than .... ... niclous methods of the revived Ku Klux Klan, against which, the rector said, a Christian community should set its face like a flint. Dr. Bowie referred to tl.e release Qf savage Instincts as an aftermath of the great war, and the Increased need for patience and Justice between the raceB. He declared tho public appeal of the Klan was an appeal to mob passion and the spirit of lynch' law. If. in reconstruction days the order had had "the relative Justification of a terrible emergency" at. the present time It was "an Insult to the forces of orderly government." Race integrity must be assured, not for one race, but for both; but equally necessary is a determination to secure for the Negro Justice, sympathy, and co-operation in the attainment of his legitimate desires for- betterment, which no violence, and no secret or ganization, can be allowed to endang er. The great Lee, the speaker said, "believed that the needs of the South could only be met so far as men with patience, with self-control and with the power of . Christian charity set themselves to build the new civiliza tion. On . no lesK ir foundation can the civilization of today rest. We want no violence. We .want no secrecy. With truth and candor, and with the chival ry that makes the strong .-ace re sponsible for wise, unselfish helpful ness toward the weaker one, must we build if what we build today be wor thy to endure.'" It will be recalled that when this , organization, which has been so ar raigned as subversive of American meals, urst sought, a few years ago, to gain a foothold in Tennessee, one of the Chattanooga papers outspoken ly opposed Its methods and principles,' and unified law-abiding publlo senti ment against it in that city. The Southern press and the Southern pul pit can together solidify '.he over whelming majority of South? n people against this "Insult to thq ! rces of orderly government," and pi ,ve be yond question that the spirit' of Lee is still honored In the land he loved so much. , Residents of Washington Plan to Entertain Host of Visitors.

Already, the White-law Hotel and other places of accommo dation have reserved practically all of their lodging space and the residents of Washington are being flooded with requests from out of ' town frlendg who plan to be present.

Senator Harding's thoughts have been much upon the Bible of late. He commented last night upon the fact In the taking on numerous uegracs in masonry In the last two weeks he has been surrounded by a particularly solemn religious atmosphere. He af firmed .his belief In the efficacy of prayer and predicted that prayer will help him with the problems that are before him In the White House. "During the Inst ten days," he said, "I have been taken far back Into ti s story of the creation and I have found It adding to my sense of religious de votion. Prayer grips the heart and adds to one's confidence. "I believe In prayer. I believe in prayer in the closet, s for there one faces God alone.
