To the Reading1 People of Columbia, S. C.: Rev. ?Charles Jaggers and I went to two of the hospitals last Sun day and read the word of God and prayed for the sick. Some of them seemed to have been really uplifted oy our service. After this we went to Zion and heard a well preached^ sermon by Rev. Dr. Lee, ex-professor of Benedict Col lege, which \yre enjoyed very much. They also gav* Rev. Jaggers a good col lection, for which he thanked them, and which he wilt endeavor to put to the very best use. On the same evening he and I met at the church down to the old folks ihome for Sunday school at 4 o'clock, and I taught the lesson to my best ability. We had with us Dr. C. B. Draffin, one of the leading white doctors |of the city. He reviewed our lesson, and I have never heard a white man talk more forcibly about the Lord than he did. He said that when he gets: to heaven he. wants to be beside Rev. Jaggers, because he knows he is going to shine. We en joyed the doctor's lecture very much, and we invite more of our white friends to come out for this is mission work and our doors are open at all times to receive any good instruction. Rev. Jaggers preached a good sermon from Paul's leter to the Phillipians, second chapter, verse five: "Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus.'! We had a joyful time. The spirit was there. But stop, look and listen. Dr. Draffin gave us five dollars in the Sunday school. He said take this and use it to the glory of God. May Gold bless him and give him long life and may he invite others with him the next time he has a chance to code. j H. W.

Tulsa, Okla., (Special to The Indi cator,) .-Propaganda intended to em barrass certain members of th* relief committee, W?0 have taken an active stand against the attitude of the city of Tulsa and the white real estate board, in the matter of the retention of the Negroes* property in th edis trictj where their property has been destroyed, is being scattered all over the country. Surprise has been ex hibited by the white citizens of the community and city to find that cer tain members of the race are finding mon|| available in other places than the m of Tulsa to reconstruct their hom& and rehabilitate themselves. Quite} recently a white lady rode down into greenwood in her car and asked one 0f the prominent black men there who ?it was who was furnishing him fund?s with which to rebuild. "THERE AR^ TWELVE MILLIONS OP NE GROES IN THE UNITED STATES/' answered this wary gentleman, "AND WE ? ARE COLLECTING FIFTY CENtrS APIECE FROM THEM FOR REBUILDING PURPOSES." l? other words, the white citizens of 'luisa are attempting to with-hold financial assistance from those who desife to rebuild on their holdings, it ii said, and they are attempting to locate all agencies from which Ne-] groes are likely to receive assistance, so everything indicates. The Negro who? gave the answer above was more diplomatic than truthful. He never theless carried his point of keeping certain interested folk in the dark. Here is the story that was carried in the^Associated Press, in an attempt to discredit the Colored Relief Com Jpjsa, Okla., Ju* 29.-Some of the c^ptf of this city are agitating a mijfe expedite -distributing and acj ?ag <jt a considerable sum of y sa? to have? been collected brough subscriptions from out otjiira pe?sons for riot refugees' re li?? m claimed that the . money is o,i^jofii?ia ar bank and is not being ?Mp?^bp:: families, who are desti H^K^^? ? Xi Ct i ly iii xl vv U. . TT . AJUHvy iiffld to be chairman of the relief cognttee." fhs report, widely circulated all ovlr he nation, has proven very em bapasing to the committee of promi nent Negroes of the Tulsa Relief Com mfctei and their representatives in mjpy points in the United States. It is3)be expected that the Negroes of ttiVbriited States would want to feel thp they were not being buncoed. It is pru? that several irresponsible citi zens have attempted to collect funds in ^several places ; in fact, there is in fo imation to the effect that in several in ?tances, designing persons have got ten away with large sums of money, blithe Associated Press report does net seek to deal with them. It in di its directly the regular committee at jrulsa; of which Mr. O. W. Gurley is ar active member. The attempt to ca st aspersions upon the committee is really an attack upon the Negroes' re wilding program on the part of cer ta n influences who seek in every way to embarrass and harass those of our gi oap who have the courage to at tempt to reconstruct their property in? the former business area. Gurley has about finished the reconstruction ofj his building on the east sine of Gleenwood and has attacked his other building on the other side of the street. [Here is a general survey of the g?oup who constitute the Relief Com mittee: s. D. Hooker, who is chair mjan, iS one of the most responsible Npgro business men in America. He *as. prior to the fire, the partner in tie famous Elliott-Hooker clothing 0 ' Tulsa. He has been connected with the "Y" efforts in Tulsa, and before tile riot, commanded the respect ol DHh black and white. He is also a n ember of the Oklahoma Commission o* Inter-Racial Co-operation. Rev. R - Whittaker, secretary of the com mittee, is the pastor of Mount Z?OE iaPtist church, the church which sus t^ed the loss of $85,^000.00 durini tle fire. lt stands to reason that h< * ?uld not have been in charge of suet 3 great community effort had he noi 1 ad the confidence of the people in th< iity of Tulsa. G. A. Gregg, executive secretary of the Y. M. C. A., at Tulsa bunton Branch, is a man who ii l nown beyond the confines of Okla ll0ma, because of his many years o llQnest effort in organizational effor i mong Negroes. Attorney E. I.

These men were tried and true before the riots and they are true and worthy now. Propaganda, such as is going the rounds is circulated for purposes that are obvious to the discerning. Money is being raised; it will be used to as sist in every way to relieve the suf fering and needy.
