Harding Administration the Balti
more Afro-American in'a printed edi
torial under the caption of "Making
A Mess Oi' It," takes issue with the
New York World.
"The New York World remarks
that President Harding and the Re
publican Congress have made a mess
of everything.
This is not altogether true.
One thing, however, the Harding
Administration is making a mess of
. the Dyer Anti-Lynching Bill. Sixty
four lynchings last year, is the record
I of the mob's toll. A President and a
I Congress pledged to pass anti-lynch
ing legislation, hems and haws on
j the issue as if no such pledge existed.
. The house passed the bill and the
' Senate pigeonholed it from January
1922, to date.
The passage of the Dyer Bill is up
j to the ' Republican ' party. It has
made its pledge. So far as the Afro
American is concerned, No Republi
can Candidate for National Office
need expect support until the party
carries out its pledge to put Anti
Lynching legislation on the statute

1. We have utterly outgrown the
need of having done the kind of work
our socalled missionaries pretend to
be doing. In consequence, the denom
ination would be the gainer by far,
were we to do away with the workers
and the work.
2. The financial cost of operating
this socalled mission work is justfied
by no moral, spiritual or financial re
3. This monumental farce of so
called missionaries has so bruised and
butchered the spirit of mission of the
denomination that it now knows a
death to which no ressurrection can,
for many years, be made to come.
1. In the days of slavery, the
Negro's church membership had to be
in that church to which his master
belonged. Asa result, at and for
many years after, freedom, we had,
in the State, many thhousand Baptist
laymen and several hundred Baptist
preachers who were unable to "give
a reason for the hope" within them.
A missionary was needed to indoctri
nate them. Then again: Scarcely one
out of a hundred of those Baptist
' preachers could even read. It was

grabbing, mere salary raising, gener
al missionary, did in his report, which
he made with much bombast and in a I
basso profundo voice at Columbia,
last year, tell how he of himself, by
himself, without any assistance in
making choice of the beneficiaries,
gave the enormous sum of $45.00 a
mong nine aged preachers. He also
told how, in accordance with his own
sweet but imperious will only he gave
the unbelievably stupendous amount
of $268.87 among thirteen ministerial
aspirants to help them in school.
True he did not tell that the greater
part of that thirteen was in no need
of the help so given. Has he not a
right to be generous to his friends
with other people's money? Be that
as it may, this is true:
According to the State Conven
tion's minutes, our socalled mission
aries cost us, in salaries and expen
ses, last year $3,236.36. By means of
this small outlay on them made, we
were able to benefit 21 person-some
who did not need it-to the enormous
amount of $313.87. In addition to
that, we were thereby instrumental
in having the Lord's Prayer repeated <%
in some jails and some "Ten Com
mandments" so posted on trees and
fences as to attract the attention of
some gentleman cow and perhaps
cause him to treat his family better.
3. The belief obtains among
many that our socalled missionaries
raise their own salaries and expenses
and arc no expense to the denomina
tion. They do not raise their sala
ries and expenses. So in addition to
being tolerated nuisances, they are an
unwarranted expense. To illustrate:
Our bombastic general missionary in
his annual report at Columbia show
I ed that he had gobbled up for him
self, without any effort to raise it,
j money that had .been raised by the * ,
j churches and sent to the associations,
j conventions, unions, etc. for miesions
($760.06. Of the $1,500 salary he ia
j allowed for misrepresenting missions,
j it will thus be seen that he raised on
j ly $730.94. The remainder he merely
i "goblbcd up." The great Gethse
' mane Association of which that peer
. less Baptist and princely leader Dr.
! J. C. White is the moderator refuses
I to turn over their mission money to
him. If other associations would ex
ercise the same good sense and excel
