SATURDAY . . .OCTOBER 29, 1927 We thank our subscribers, who have been sending in the amounts due. j m --—' ““ Success may be with you tudav and ■ disaster with you tomorrow. - I Every wrong act carries with it its own punishment. There are millions of people living, who do not believe in the promise of a heaven or in the existence of a hell. When they die, they are expected to find out all about it. Good time people "get theirs” her and they can rest assured that they will pay in sorrow and suffering for the violation of the laws of decency and right. The Newport News Star has ourj thanks and appreciation for all that' it has been kind enough to say. This i journal has taken high rank and its( editorial columns teem with literary j gems. * **. ;i vj ] The students at the Virginia Mili tary Institute at Lexington, Va., a white institution, have gone on a strike because Superintendent W. H. Cocke suspended W. F. Griffith, a senior for hazing. Like white, like colored. The spirit of insubordina tion is in the air. We have received "The Tragedy of White Injustice,” by Marcus Garvey, published by Amy Jacques Garvey. It -u- a pamphlet, with 24 pages, contain ing a poem with 70 verses in one, 11 verses in another, and 11 more verses in another. It may be obtained by ; addressing the publisher at Box 22, i Station L, New York. N. Y. Send for. *a copy. *. . ^ - i . ^ p were not aware that Gen. A. F.' Davidscn, Grand Chancellor of the Grand Lodge, Knights of Pythias, of Xew Jersey, was dead until we came across an old copy of the Red Bank, N. J., F.cho, stating that he died April 4, 1927, at his home in Atlantic City, N. J. He was our bosom friend, and during a.l the vicissitudes of our meteoric career, he supported and encouraged us. He was a \ irginian. Chivalric, conscientious, noble, scorning what was wrong and glory ing in what was right, he has gone to a well deserved reward. We have received from the Trustees1 of the John F. Slater Fund one of its Occasional Papers, No. 24, con taining Five Letters of the Univeisity Commission on Race Questions, ^ou ii'.av say what you will, but these problems are nearing’ solution. Lynch ing is being unequivocally condemned. For mere than forty years, we have waged an agitation against this evil and it has borne fruit. The cohesion of some of the best white and coloied minds m this country, both Noith and South is one of the wonders of the century. Some of us may get impatient, but the sober second sense is asserting it self in both the conservative white and colored people of this country and we should do nothing to disturb it. We admit that we have been dis heartened and pessimistic at times ourselves, but at last we see, or we think we see, daylight upon the horizon of racial progress and we shall do nothing to cause trouble while the skies for us are clearing. 9 9 9 9 •> THE TROUBLE AT HAMPTON We have been puzzled to understand the cause of the trouble at Hampton, where the insubordination of the stu dents reached such proportion as to cause the principal of the institution to temporarily close the institution. As Hampton Institute is a charitable institution and the money contributed Weak Back ^ Strengthened Quickly > If it hurts your back to lift a heavy i object, if you have strained the back | muscles, if a “cold has settled in j your back.” or if you suffer from ] lumbago, put on a Red Cross Ki^s# •Plaster and you will get relief almost at once. It gives the support needed by 4* •Weakened, sore muscles. It provides ‘ « continuous automatic massage with wvery movement of the body, thus re- , iieving congestion and stimulating jdr- i •culation in the affected tissues. The med icat ion is absorbed through the gkin and goes directly to the weak, , •ore, lame muscles, qtlieting the pain, ^relieving the irritated nerves, and rtf gtoring the free use of the flfcosdei. ( *. Be sure to ask for Johnson's Red by ti e students could not and would not permit the institution to function, we presume that it has become a ques tion of discipline and control. Principal James E. Gregg has al ways stood ‘ four square” with refer ence to all of the great questions af- ' fecting us as a people. He is in line with the most advanced thought of the j most hiyhly od-cated leaders of our peop’e and we cannot conceive how students, who are “worth their salt” | could make an issue upon such trivial matters as to whether or not lights* are turned on at movies, or whether they shall be confined to the school j !grounds, etc. These matters could have been taken up and formally dis-' cussed with the school authorities. 1 Hundreds of these young people cannot be controlled by their parents ' in their own homes and some of them I are sent to institutions of this kind for that reason. We should ldo to hear the other ii'e of the question, should the issues be other than those already given to he public. Some institutions are so an::kus to secure students in large numbers „kai, they pay little attention to Uie kind and character of some of these who storm its doors. When this is the case, the “weeding out” process must necessarily follow and this is being done. Just fancy a body of students sub- . mitting to the State separation law ‘ inside of their own auditoriums and then leading a revolt against the lighting of a movie picture hall and the refusal to permit the promiscuous roaming of the streets of Phoebus, Hampton and Newport News. It is time that the stadent body be heard from. The present outlook is anything but creditable to them. THE POLITICAL SITUATION The political situation in the coun-: try is attracting attention, not only ! in the United States, but in the chan celleries of the world. President Cal vin Coolidge took a wise step when he wrote h: j “I do not choose” mes sage, but he threw the political lead ers in both of the great parties into i interminable confusion. Few, if any,! Democratic leaders doubted, but what j he would be the nominee of the Re-j publican Party and some are even now | of this same opinion. The question was, ’’Who, but Cool-1 id ;e?” This has been followed by an- j other similar query. It is, “Who, but A1 Smith?” New York is as yet a pivotal State. It is known that the . tendency and former habit of prac tically all Southern States are to vote the Democratic ticket. The Lowden bocm is assuming a menacing attitudi toward a l other Kepudican can didates, but the split in the Republican Party there tends to damper the ardor of thousands, who might otherwise 'support lum. I There is only one Republican in ; ! these United States, who can be pre | sumed to have a “i.host of a show” in j carrying New \ ork against Gonein^r j Alfred H. Smith and that statesman is Charles Evans Hughes. He is a i- ! mittedly weak in the Western Stages. He is undoubtedly the best equipped man for the presidency. He shows no inclination to again enter the field of j politics. Genuine statemanship is at a low ebb. The miasma of cheap, de grading politics permeates practical ly everything. Out of the confusion on the Repub lican side may emerge a great man. the leader of the hour. The Demo crats have their candidate practically , picked out. Nothing but a lesigna tion, sickness or death will prevent the naming of the distinguished New Yorker as the standard bearer of the Democratic Party. W here shall the Republicans find a man able and popu lar enough to defeat him? Plainfield. X. J. 450 W. Third St., October 8, 1927. j Board of Health, Richmond, Va.

Messick, a Roanoke lawyer, against Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey combined shows alleging that Willie and George Muse, Negro boys cf Roanoke, were held against their will and exhibited as “the Ambassador from Mars.” The two boys were seen at Roanoke, October 14th, when the circus was showing there and recog nized by their mother, the petition alleges. • Since the reunion the boys have! been with the mother, it is stated, j Harriet Muse, mother of the boys, was ' quoted in Roanoke as saying that she ; contracted to let the boys leave with i a man named Stokes, operating a 1 show and that years later the boys 1 became part of the circus, against which the suit was filed, while they were in California. She claims they were abducted as the suit here fol- i lowed. Attachment summons in the suits, for $50,000 each, were served on the circus in Richmond Monday, last night. | GRAVEL HILL BAPTIST CHURCH HENRICO COUNTY, VA. - I Pastor, W. L. Tuck.
