Entered at Post Office at Dallas, Texan, as second-clas matter, under Act of Congress, March, 1879 Such a decided stand against further Federal encroachment upon the sacred rights of states has been caused in Southern newspapers by the presentation of the Pyer-Anti lynching bill and the attacks upon it by Democratic Congressmen and - the press generally that we had well night given up all hope of even seeing an editorial or individual expression showing even a mildly commendable generousness of thought. We had been led to feel that it was almost impossible for our friends and neighbors to get the right conception of the case in hand till we read the following editorial which recently appeared in the Dallas Morning News, under caption of : "Federal En croachments." z PuMishod evorv saturdav mornina ' We have been hearine much of late about the Federal Gov- m tu. year t 2coo bwim Avenue by ernment'g encroachments on the provinces of the States. And we shall doubtless hear more of this lamentation during the next lu nar month. But, as is characteristic of campaign discussions, the truth is much distorted for the lack of the discrimination. One must infer from what the candidates have been telling us that the Federal Government is a kind of alien enemy that never tires nor ceases in its fforts either to undermine or scale the wall of authority which the Constitutions of the States have reared about them. Even if is should be granted, which it could not be in justice, that every instance cited constitutes a case of Federal usurpation of State authority, it could be protested that, in many instances, if not in most of them, the Federal Govern ment has been animated by a spirit radically different from that imputed to it by these who denounce it for acts which they re gard as acts of encroachment. In coming into the States with its great power, the Fec'eral Government has probably as often come at the invitation of the States as in despite of their protests. And when it has not come in response to their invitation, it has fre quently come under the provocation of their refusal to discharge the duties that are entailed by the rights that are said to be filch ed. If, for example, the Federal Government should undertake to put the lynching habit under repression, it will not be moved by a lust of power, but by the conviction that the States can not be relied on to safeguard the right of trial by jury, which is probably the most precious of political bequeathments. Whether that is a justifying motive or not may present something of a question, but that the Federal Government could not be charged with cov etousness of power if it shouM do that must everywhere be ad mitted, for its long toleration of this memacing evil testifies to its reluctance to act. Representative Sumners alluded to this aspect of the mat ter during his speech the other day before the members of the Dallas Kiwanis Club. "One reason," he said, "for what some peo ple consider the steady encrachment of Federal authority upon State authority is that the States have been slow to use the pow ers which are theirs in their own interest and their own protec tion or that, endeavoring to use them, they have used them but half effectively.

Were (here no history of strug gle and accomplishment behind the Grand United Order of Odd Fellows of Texas, the bare fact of their hav ing chosen Dallas as their place of meeting would have been reason enough for the opening of the doors of hospitality and welcome to them by the people of this city. In any case they would ' have 'been assured of a welcome. But the fact thai In forty-three years, the directing heads of that Order have been chosen with such startling knowledge and conscious ness of value and that they have so asHlduousiy applied themselves to the duties entrusted to them as to occupy the rank In the forefront of Texas fraternities which they do, gives special cause for thankfulness on the part of the people of Dallas that they have graced the city with their presence and allowed the citi zens to extend to thera every courf tesy of which they are capable. The Odd Fellows and the House hold of Ruth in Texas are highly solvent. These facts alone are worthy of commendation. But their plans for the future are no leBs splendid and worthy of the highest praise. They plan the erection of a temr pie in Houston, which will be a living evidence to the world of their ability to practically demonstrate their fitness and worth. Such a plan betokens a spirit of progress. In our whole racial life this spirit can not be too evident. Dallas Is progressive. Its citizen ry delights to honor and entertain individuals who are as they are. Of such sort are the Individuals who are here assembled in this grand lodge and Dallis is flighted at their presence in It ' Every few days we hear of another Republican congressman who sud denly discovers that he has been neglecting his private business too long and that he can't afford to remain in Congress. Slemp, the one Republi can member from Virginia, is the latest. He needn't bother whether he runs or not he will be able to give all his time to his private business after next March. The Virginia Democrats have the jinx sign on that district, and no Republican is going to represent it in the next Congress. New York with its twenty odd districts, will probably not Bend a single Repub lican to the next House. A striking thing occurred in the city at the may orallty election a few months ago fully half of the Negro .voters voted the Democratic ticket The heaviest Negro precincts returned Democratic majorities. The new alignment, is reported to be spreading In the north and east, led by the most intelligent members of the black race. The Re publican party platform in 1920 promised the end of the- lynch law; the Dyer Anti-lynching bill, seemingly hopelessly bung up in Congress along with the bonus bill, is the only result of the promise. Dyer and every one else concerned in the bill know full well that it, if enacted into law, would not stand a ghost of a show before the Supreme Court. Republican mem bers have said so on the floor! of the House; some have refused to vote for such a piece of hypocrisy. Judge Hertey of Main denounced it as a fraud and filed a minority report against it. The educated Negro who reads, thinks and understands is becoming plentiful in the north. They are get ting away from the idea of being a chattel of the Republican party, gett ing only the political husks and never a bite from the first table of the party. When Harding came In with a majority of unheard of size, in both branches of Congress, the Negro knew that the platform promise of anti-lynching legislation could be redeemed if the Republicans really bad much interest in it. It is two years since the promise was made and no prophet has the courage to attempt to visualize the final enactment of the law, poor and unconstitutional as it is. One of the ablest leaders of bis race, refers to the political betrayal of the Negro In the North, and thinks that the Negro should divide up along political lines. Te thinks the Negro has carried his loyalty to the Republican party, for enough after having been betrayed by every Republican administration from Hayes to Harding. Wheeling Register. A NEGRO GOLF CLUB. in all the millions of square miles In Idea there is today no place ready for him. ' . ' In his new novel, the hero of which Is a Colored man, Mr. Irvln Cobb gives an accurate diagnosis of the case. In a sense where the proposed emigration is under discussion at a Negro meeting one of the characters is asked why he is willing to go to Africa, to which he replies: "Who, me?" says 'Lisses. "You got me wrong! I ain't almin to re move my self nawhars. I is mos' confor'able whar I is at. No sun, whut I aims to do Is to 'tach myse'f to the collector's office yere at home an' handle the money-dues." Neither the Intelligent, prosperous Colored resident of Harlem, nor the field worker of Mississippi has any serious desire to go "back to Af rica." It is no more a home land to him than Greenland would be. He has rooted more deeply in America than some of our more recent comers from Europe. Neither can he be coaxed. Some of his race may express sympathy with the idea, but when it comes to practice even these might hesitate. Africa In fact does not beckon to any such group of possible Immi grants. The white man in British and French Africa dominates as in Eu rope or America, and means to remain dominant. There is no labor shor tage in the Congro, no Immediate room for any twelve or fifteen million immigrants. Even a million, if hastily transported thither, would meet with the initial hardships of immigrants everywhere, starvation and dis ease. 1 Any solution of the race problem, to attract support, must accept facts as they arc.

The Item that this course is laid out will cause a million giggles to sizzle across the country. Cartoonists will make funny pictures of It. .Something exquisitely funny seems to excite the white race when it sees the Colored race doing things which are ordinary parts of the day's work and play to the white people.

But they must face it sooner or later. Lynch law must be destroyed or America will be. Sooner or later they must choose either to act themselves or allow the government of which they are a part to act. That day is not far distant. .. What will Texas do? - THE ORPHANS MEED HELP. .

What is probably the latest and must peculiar of gifts ever coming to the public notice is that of $800,000 given by Charles Garland of Cape Cod, whose refusal of the fortune of which the gift is a part brought him into the limelight last year. In making if gift he authorized the following statement: "I am trying to use the inherited wealth toward social uses for the following reasons: I believe that every person is an in tegral part of society, and that the interests of one individual can not be divorced from the interests of the other members of so ciety without all having to pay the price for it in the end. From this it follows that I must strive to use whatever resources I have to the advantage of all. With this object, I intend tc turn over to the American Fund for Public Service the sum of about $800.- 000." ... James Weldon Johnson is one of the directors of the fund. Men and wome.i in times before have given of their wealth to the public but in nearly every case the agencies to which they have given have been specified and the gaurantee of direct ad ministration for the causes for which they were bequeath has been made in the will. But never before has it happened that such a sum has been left "to promote experimental agencies for public welfare." . Will it succeed in accomplishing real welfare? Such a question at once arises in the mind of even the casual observer. - , True it is that with few exceptions those in whose charg? the fund is placed are genera)!.,- called "radical," y the general public. But generous thinkers have always paid more than pass ing attention to "radical," movements. In them has often been found the beginning of what afterward became popular and al together conventional. Certainly thi3 fund cannot do much to further increase the chaotic condition in which America now is; and bring into popu lar favor a really constructive program of public welfare which now does not thrive became it is "radical." PERISCOPE SPEAKERS' INFORMATION. . (By William Pickens A. N. P.) The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People has been In existence for thirteen years (1922). It therefore, has a longer record than any other organization that has grown out of the Negro's own effort to better his condition. It represents the highest attainment of the American Negro as a group In the matter of social self-help. (By The Asscclated Negro Preas) My dears: They are stealing my thunder, right and left, and just when I was getting ready o give you a lot of talk about the teeth and their aid as a feature of beauty, Mr. Colgate & Co., comes out with a full page article entitled "Good Teeth and Wo manly Beauty," and say, what chnnce has a desert rose got against Mr. Colgate? None, sez we! But I'll say the lady editor that put out that page really knows old man Dentist. It will be rather ifficult for me not to quote frof the article so deep an impression it made, but far be It from me to lay myself liable to the charge of plagiarism, so 1 11 try to avoid direct quotations. Somewhere I read that women can lay a lot of their beauty trouble on the fact that they were born like that, but they certainly can't say that they were born with roten teeth, for most oft the trouble is caused by ig norance or indifference combined with neglect.

In Ger many insurance companies find it profitable care for the teeth of the policy holders, and in thirty-five Ger man cities there are municipal den tal hospitals and Infirmaries. The proper care of the teeth so far as tooth brush, dental flos, anl mechanical work by dentist go, has been oo throughly drilled in us. that I think every child above four years of age, not to mention us seekers after beauty, do not neglect our teeth. But how mnny of us try to use our teeth to crack nuts, bite hard candy, drink icer beverages Incessantly, eat steaming hot food, or drink scalding coffee? And I've seen these thoughtt less flapper 3 (also their big sisters, aunts and mothers) use their teeth to extract corks from bottles, to untie knots, to sever cords, to 'sharpen pencils, and all sorts of marable mec hanical work.
