Much publicity has been and is still being given to the con ference of world powers soon to be held in Washington for the limitation of armaments. This conference, as generally consid ered by the average citizen is only another one 01 the special con cerns of the governing officials in which be directly has no part and too often one is prone in such consideration to forget that everything which affects his government cifects him in the final analysis. in considerine.the forthcoming conference in terms of the average citizen we find that its success would mean & definite re reliei to the average citizen in terms of lessened taxes. To use the words of William i'ickens in a recent discussion of this ques tion "If the United States could be rid of its war burdens , the tollowintr three thinc-s could hannen at once: 1. The salaries and wages of all Federal officers and em ployees could be doubled, from the President on down to the jan itor of tne post olfice at siocum, Alabama. All tne tens ana tens of thousands of government employees could get just twice as much pay. All tne smecurists migftt get twice as much" "easy money ' and all the grafters twice as much graft. For every dol lar tnat is now wasted, two dollars might be wasted, and mail thieves and other thieves might steal Just twice as much; and yet. 2. TAXES COULD BE CUT 1IALF IN TWO. People who now pay a thousand dollar Federal tax, could pay only five hun dred; and people who pay fifty dollars, could pay twenty-five; and yet 6. The Federal Government would have more money than it could use or know what to do with. For every dollar spent, wasted and stolen, there would be another dollar added to the burdens of the treasury department. And the most serious finan cial problem before the Congress would be, what, to do with the extra money. This extra money could give every child in the United States an education from the kindergarten through the university." Will it happen that this the dream of every peace loving human being will be realized? Certainly not at this conference. It at best can only outline the beginnings of a plan of armament limitations along lines conducive the adequate protection of all countries involved. And it must be remembered in this connec tion that the selfishness of notions has by no means decreased nor has the human family yet learned the art of love and broth hood to the exclusion of hatred, envy and a desire for conquest and supremacy by physical force. The disarmament conference means a step in the direction of peace based upon understanding rather than fear and if even partially successtul in its operation will pave the way for practi cal benefit in reduced taxes and increased governmental efficien cy and an even greater blessing in terms of a world more nearly free from the strife, famine, pestilence and death which we have seen resulting from the latest and greatest of earthly con flicts. At present hope even of a successful limitation of armament is highly visionary but it is to be hoped that subsequent events may prove that the practical attempt to make reality of this vis ion was based upon a correct estimation of the extent of the ex istence of human brotherhood and national unselfishness. POLITICAL The Republicans of Virginia have a plank in their platform which reads thus : "Political solidarity in either race is a menace to free institutions." This statement, aimed directly at Negro voters is the basis for the policy of exclusion and lily whiteism which they are now pursuing in Virginia with the expressed approval of Republican party leaders in other sections of the country. Lily whiteism is spreading. More and more plainly are Re publican party leaders everywhere showing their disrespect for the blind following of the Republican party by Negroes. These in dications almost national in point of appearance should be proof enough for all that slavish devotion to any party does not pay. The Negroes of Kentucky and Virginia have resented their exclusion by the regular Republican machine to the extent of or ganizing a party of their own and placing their own candidates in the field. In taking this step they have shown real manhood. And from it they will learn much of vital benefit to themselves. From this effort they will begin to fully appreciate the real spirit and pride of themselves at its real value. Though peculiar it is true that our desire for real indepen dence is often guaged by the price which we are compelled to pay for it and pitifully few of us are willing to pay that price. That assertion is based upon a consideration of the exper iences which leaders of the independent party are now experien cing in Kentucky. During the campaign there strongest opposition to the progress of the party was due to the lack of support of Negroes themselves. It transpired that many of them were able to be hired by white bosses -to terrorize the meetings of their own people and Instances such as this seem putable that much of our pride is verbal and that even as we are our best friends, we are also our worst enemies. And if we hope to gain and maintain ourselves as real men and not slaves to the whims, and fancies of others, we must bnnir to bear, all of the pressure possible against the spirit exemplified by those sy cophants of Kentucky who can be duplicated in every community wnere men are attemotinir to work out their own salvation po litical and otherwise. We believe that there is no Republicans as such in Vir;;in'a We leel that the Virr ma incident is a fair indication of their spirit everywhere. vv e also feel that it would be a splendid thing if Colored vo ters began even more than they are now doing to cease to cast their ballots at the bidding of blind devotion to any party. Mere partly labels mean nothing but manly action has al ways won out. Our exclusion by the various party faction is forcing us to the conclusion that it is time to reallv examine the "shirt" and fi.id out whether or not the "sea" is not preferable after all. We have been political chattels long enough. And, though m many ways our behavior has been excusable, further progress m a direction wnicu leaas only to If we must face a rail strike are accustomed to hard kncrJrs.

Wlille the primary object of a life Insurance company is to sell insurance In the form of a guarantee to pay a certian sum to an individual or his heirs, at the end of a certain period of years or In event of death.upon the pay ment of a stipulated premium, many other Issues have been added to this original purpose. For instance, some companies pay special attention to the health of their policy-holders by providing freo medical examination at certain periods, while others provided trained nurses ia case of illness.' Attention is directed in a special article in this issue to the work done by the North Carolina Mutual Life Insurance Company of Durham, outside of Its regular field of insuring lives, in furnishing information and instruc tion on vital topics to the people among whom it is working. This com pany wan founded twenty-three-years ago by the late John Merrick and Is rated as the largest Negro Insurance company in the world, having 35,000 000 of insurance in force. But besides Insuring Negro risks against death and disease H seeks to encourage thrift, promote health and generally serve as an uplifting, force among the race. Among its other activities the company Issues weekly letters from its medical department dealing with all phases of disease and seeking to re duce the mortality. The ravages of tuberculosis were recently brought to the attention of the Colored physicians within its territory and means sugpest for reducing the death rate from this cause. The increase of hom'eideB with in the race is another subject Uiat has called for special notice, as It has been found that the rate of deaths from violence among Colored males Is practical ly 10 times that among the whites. The rate among Colored females from this cause is also higher than it ought to be. The coinpony emphasizes these facts as showing the necessity for taking Into consideration the moral as well as the physical status of all applicants for insurance. Among those classed as undesirable risks are bootleggers, gamblers and the men who operate pool rooms and other resorts of like character. From this it will be seen that the prudent purveyor of life insurance teaches the value of thrift, hygiene, sanitation and moral living. A policy of life insurance issued under such conditions becomes a certificate of good health and good character. New York Age. AGE BACKS AWAY FROM YOITII. The aged members of the black race seem a bit reluctant and reticent in recognizing and aiding the new generation. Antagonism is found in al most every sphere of life and the mutiny in the air. On all Bides evidence of the opposition and resentfulness of the older men can be found, and the result Is, er men Is retarded and their spirit dulled. In many Instances the veteran black man set out with malice aforethought and deliberately attempt to crush young venturers upon the broad arena of Hfe. While this is found to some extent among the black people. We have seen white men seek to throttle the efforts of ambitious ?nd energetic young men and they som tlmes succeed. They tried it with both Roosevelt and Hiram Johnson, but they generally seem willing to extend the helping hand to the adolescent business man and point the pitfalls and traps to him and when the younger man has won his spurs the older man steps down gracefully and relinquish es the reins to the sturdier, huskier fellow. But, among us, as a race, we find no such creed. The old men sit In the saddle long past their time of usefulness. They wait to be thrown out and absolutely refuse to help the young man. They distrust him. They despise him and seek to checkmate his advance and stifle his general ac tivity. This narrow-minded, selfish practice weakens our gasping racial solidarity and stands as a Nemesis to our progress as a race. . Who is to take the older man's place when he passes on if he allows no younger man to grasp the situation and learn the tricks of trade? Who is to furnish the fight, energy and optimism in the stern battle for racial betterment and amelioration? When the chilled blood and the withered mus cle' of 'air old nian'Si shrunken frame no longer sustains him for the fray, what will become of us? Is it not true that statistics show that the last twenty years have been retrogression for the black man in a civil and economic way these, the very years when old age struck the lenders of a generation ago? The black race needs an Infusion of new blood new energy new ag gression. We want something more than the listless, thumb twiddling sycophantic pussyfootism which belly-crawls around the back door of po litical and educational opportunity. We need something different from the beggardly fashion of seeking political crumbs and Insignificant jobs as a fit reward for the support of Twelve Million black folks. We need and deserve representation in Congress and in the Cabinet. We need infusion of new and fresher blood and co-ordination of effort from the older men. No national administration would dare insult an entire race by depriving it even of the Jim Crow Jobs that Uie prejudiced Taft put in the hands of the black people as a fitting reward for his service. Seven months we cried the Stentor's warning:. "Beware the Ides of March." Now with equal conviction we assert that there would be no Ides of March if the older men with their practical experience and sober judgment would Join In hand with the younger men of daring and aggres sion. The younger men have been driven by necessity to ready willingness and co-operatloni Why delay further? For, If the coalition is not soon affected In the interest of black folk, it will be as when Caesar said, "The Ides of March have oom'e." Said the soothsayer, "Yes, but not gone." The Chicago Whip. "A EW CALL TO A NEW SERVICE." It is the call to fight for the actualization of human rights for whose Ideals an.? aims our fathers and brothers fought. It is a call to enlist, not for ninety days, nor for four years, but for a lifetime! Not for service In Cuba, in Mexico, in Europe, but here at home and thence throughout the world and throughout life. A long, severe, never-ending struggle, It means a hazardous risk, a tremendous task, a perilous adventure, a constant en deavor. It is the fight for actualization of h- iuan rights; the fight for an equal chance for all; the fight for a fair chance for the weak and erring; the fight for social justice; the fight for clean streets, for pure food, foi the fight for social justice; the fight for clan streets, for pure food, for pure water, pure air, and God's sunlight for all; the fight for comfortable homes for those who do not know how to make them for themselves; the t '. i't to train them in knowing how to tare for and enjoy such homes wuen once secured; the fight for education suited to varied needs of each and all; the fight for pure and Innoctnt amusements; the fight for Uie child's right to a good, clean, and wholesome home and time to enjoy it with father and mother, brothers and sisters; the Cght for the child's freedom from Uie factory, for its rights to play, for its share of the open air, for its right to live in God's out-of-doors; the fight for womanhood, for her rv;ht to a comfortable home, for her right to bear children, for her rlgt t to train them in the nuture and admonition of the Lord; the fight for her glorious joy of Instructing and training her children in all human virtues as well as 'n the duties of good citizenship; the fight to drive from our civilization the devils of greed, graft, gambling, drink, and vi e, and "everything unclean and him that maketh an abomination and a He;'' the fight for honesty, efficiency, and economy In government vil lage, town, city, state, nation. Here is the Great Adventure; here is the Supreme Challenge. We beat no drums, but the angels of God would re joice if they could enter into the battle.' There Is good fighting all along the line, big enough, great enough, glorious enough to demand the highest type of human bravery and daring that rhe world has ever known; and far more certain and rich in its results rind far more glorious In its achieve ments. It is far more gloriouB to light, and If need be to die, on this battle field than to have fdught, and if need be u have died, at Bill Run, or at Appomattox, or at Santiago, or at Vera Cruz, or at Chateau-Thierry or Belleau Wood, or it Use Argonne.

The tentacles of the hydra-headed monster of mob law have shown them selves In the last week in 'wo new and vitally dangerous directions. Every American, black as well as white, who loves the fair name of his country, must stand shocked and ashamed at the news that comes from Japan as well as Georgia. Dispatches from Uie Orient, published in the N'ew York Herald, declare that the Japanese papers are lashing the Japauese into an antl-Amerlcnn fury on the Bcore of the inl. unan treatx..ent accorded Mack Americans by their ' white fellow-citizens. They are making the most of the Washington and Chisago race riots, telling Uie people Japan "U,at these bloody street battles of hundreds )f thousands of whites against the blacks picture plainly the status of the American people and the ferocity MOD . .U c HV?ia, 1 s- ii or OPINIO resull Is confusion in the ranks and the growth and progress of the young l rrn ii CLASSES WILL IMriiOVE A1TEAR AME.

Some people, usually ladies, but not always, who need to wear glasses, go without them because they are afraid that glasses will make them look older, if these cor rections of the eyes are needed, the effect upon apparent age should have no liiilence. But, as a matter of fact, the effect of glasses, is often, if not usually, to make the wearer uppear voungsr. The strain upon the eyes that un corrected optical defects produce Is Uie most general cause for wrinkles about the eyes and in the forehead between the eyei. It these wrink'eb make a person lock younper, then their eif-et Is dilferent than it nas always been supposed to be. The relief of eye strain by glasses smooth es out the wrinkles more' effectively tiiun hours a day of massage ever can. But aside from the wrinkles or aforesaid Idea that glasses add to apparent age, they undoubtedly often Improve the appearance and make the weaicr look younger.

LEADING BANKERS ENDORSE AND HEAD UNITED CAMPAIGN FOR BETTER AGRICULTURE. Dallas, Texas, Oct. 13. Nathan Adams, Chairman of the Campaign Committee and Vice President of the American Exchange National Bank of Dallas Btates: "It is time for Uie business interests of Texas, in co operation with the farmers of Texas, to get a fair return for the products of this- country, and it can only be done through the active co-operation of both. Farmers should not be tempted by the present prices of cotton to increase the acreage. Di versified and intensified farming means more prospsrous communities; therefore the sensible thing for farm ers to do is to diversify their crops to the extent that they can feed themselves and livestock from their own farms, making cotton a surplus crop. Warren P. Andrews of Fort Worth, President of the Texas Bankers' Association, states that every good banker of the South who passed through the ordeals of 1920 in the huge carry-over of cotton and in the general shortage of food . and feed stuffs, could not fail to accept his responsibility with the farmers of this country."It would be wrong at this time not to cne forth and make permanent th? progress and prosper ity in diversified farming that has been gained this year. We should not consider along the price of cot ton, hut should maintain an inde pendent living at home, in so far as soil and climate will permit" "From these statements it is evi dent that not only the farmers arc interested in the general prosperity of agriculture and better farming conditions," stated E. F. Shropshire, Secretary of the campaign. These gentlemen frankly state that they are not farmers, but are much Interred in farming conditions and of their prejudices against Colored peoples." Surely no more omnlous shadow has fallen athwart America's pathway than" this ugly menace of the hostility of the yellow races. Should this anti-American propaiinda take deep root and gain momentum among the hundreds of million of the yellow races' in the Orient the dire possibilities of its consequent t 4, in a world race war would be too dreadful to contemplate. Yet this is the next world tragedy which this agitation, made possible by the increasing mob law of America, protends. It is the logical conclusion of the cam palKi!;i of Uie professional race haters against the black and yellow peo ples carried on in Congress and throughout the nation, but especially in the South and far West This floodgate of Impending trouble the last Ad mlnUi ration at Washington opened by giving ear, tacit approval and po litical preferment to the demagogues, and half concealed traitors of the nation, the Ku Klux Klan and the Lily Wbltes. It released tho forces of discontent and discord which are sowing the wind but unless brought up short by the present Administration the nation may soon reap the whirl wind. When they provoke the proud children of the Land of the Rising Sun they put on this nation's hand problems which may rock it for gen orations for solution. In allowing mob law to go on unchecked by the strong right arm of the nation, in failing to declare that the preachers and practlcers of race persecution are troitors and enemies of the Republic, Congress is allowing the small boy to enter the rowder magazine with matches. 1 But serious as is this foreign phase of American race prejudice and mob law, their direct effect upon the nation from within Is now beginning to be seen. We have long said that it was but a step from the lynching of a black man to the lynching of a white man and general anarchy. Among the manifold Instances of mob law none has more clearly pointed this out than the attempted lynching of the white woman in Virginia on Saturday. These are the chickens of mob law against the black man coming home to the American people to roost. The loosening of the bonds of civ ilization in the Boston police strike, in the Macon textile strike whipping, in the "Washington and Chicago race riots hah come down as the direct descendants of Southern mob law and race disfranchisement, which made possible the present Admiristration. Congress must stop mob !aw now if it would preserve the Republic New York News. that these old styles of mountings imposed. The mountings of i mod ern pair of lenses for wear is a thine of rrt and beauty. One of the reasons why lenses cannot be considered a disfigurement is the new forms that are every where seen. These are lenses of much larger size than formerly, but they are also cup-shaped, of toric, and afford a view of the whole eye back of the glasses. It !s a shapo that was designated to Improve the lield of vision of the wearer, by en larging it While it does this effect ively. It also alfords pny one In con versation with the wearer a complete viv o each eyo. Ihere is no cut ting the eye in two by the edge of a lens, so that part of it Is seen out-.-ide and part inside.. Anyone who lies refused to wear glasse.3 because of Its effect on ap parent age has not, evidently, become rcntinlntrd with the wonderful ad vances that have been made in the direction of supplying suitable mount ings for lenses. Along with that fart ;;oib the vast lmproement in the service of fitting the eyes that I has been brought about by state optical laws, and. the establishment : by them of the modern profnsiion !)f optometry. To get both the oodn and the service, you should go to .a competent optometrist for glasses. know that the farmers prosperity is the prosperity of all business. As hankers they know finance and finan cial conditions as few farmers know them. With this broad knowledge on economic conditions they see the danger of increased cotton acreage for 1922, at the expense of food and feed crops. together we have done work which is acceptable to the community, the State, and the country. "You and I are in position to speak for the sincerity and the loy alty of some of the white men and women who are as anxious as we are to right wrongs, for we have tested them. Wre can never stand by and hear white people denounced as a whole because of the wrong doing of some, without telling of those we know in the North and in the South who are working unceas ingly for Justice and fair-play for all." White and Colored men and wo men spoke before the Federation of women who are trying to get a com mon platform upon which the church es and clubs can work to develop community programs. Virginia cit izens, both whlto and Colored, through this Lexington meeting, had their attention directed to same se rious problems in child-training and health conservation. The Federation, on invitation, visited the Virginia Military Institute and Washington and Lee University. $2xi.f!il0 LEASE SIGNED FOR AN DERSON'S HANK. PROPERTY. New York, N. Y.
