J* Bryant, a Graduate of Spelman, Is Doing For Our People Through the School Which She Founded Five I Years Ago. Atlanta, Ga.—Spelman seminury con tinues to exert a wide and uplifting in fluence upon the people of this commu nity. The message sent on New Year’s day, 1914, by General Booth to his great army, condensed into the single word “OthiTs,” may be said to be en graved upon the heart of every Spel mau girl as she goes forth to perforin life’s duties. Not only is she willing to do for those less fortunate, but her training has made her also capable* of helping the needy. So well known is the character of this school that when the announce ment is made in a community that the new teacher is a Spelman student no young person remains at home for any reason whatsoever, not even to pick cotton. Nor is it the children only MRS S. C. J. BRYANT. who profit by the presence of the ear nest teacher in their midst. Mothers confide their perplexities, the mtthuter presents his difficulties, the civic 'Hicer seeks conference—the entire village j looks to the Spelman teacher on i finds in her a counselor and friend. Among the daughters of S| • Iman who have entered upon a life <>f self forgetting labor is Mrs. S. C. .1 I'.ryant of this city. She completed 11» high school course in 1901. Later si took the degree of bachelor of tbeolgy at I Morehouse college. Iler husband, Dr. | l*. J. Bryant, is pastor of Wheat street Baptist church, the membership of which is something over 5,00<> Mrs. Br.vnnt is a woman of many uni va ried interests, being state president of the Woman’s Missionary and l.<luca tional society and vice president »f the national Baptist convention. Besides being a leader in chun h mat ters, she is also a vitally active mem ber of numerous committees for the betterment of the home, the school on'.i the community. Despite the manifold demands upon her time and sttngth. she has added to-her cares by si rting a preparatory and industrial hoot Her inspiration came from seein; mem bers of the Wheat Street church, keen ly anxious to be about the King' busi ness. burning with zeal, but unable to plan, to execute, to bring to fruition, because of the lack of proper training. Looking into their eager faces, she read her master’s message. On Sept. 4. 1909, the Bryant school was opened in five small rooms over a grocery store. The enrollment that year was 175, with four teachers. The brave spirit of this woman, her clear vision and wise management, gained for the school friends who made it pos sible to close the year free of debt. Now there are eight teachers and 275 pupils. Thirty-eight of these are in the kindergarten department. A recent visit to this school at night was of unique interest. The rooms over the grocery store, in which the school is still held, are in size VI hy 15. Two classes were being conducted in each. There are no desks in these rooms, and the blackboards are very poor. From 7:30 until 10 o’clock these grown people who have worked hard all day pore over their books with an eagerness which is pathetic. Some of them walk six and seven miles io get here. One woman, who conducts a school of her own of sixly pupils dur ing the day, attends here at night and seizes with avidity every possible scrap of knowledge so as to have a hit of new mental food for her children on the morrow. One man, long grown, is now nhle to manage his business owing to three years’ drill with Mrs. Bryant and her helpers. Among other things which impresses one is the marvelous pa tience of the teachers, for to instruct men and women of the age of slxty fivc and over in the rudiments is not calculated to soothe the nerves. The hours which most of these teachers devote to their profusion are from S:3§ n. m. to in ?►. m.. and all this for the princely >• ry of $*J5 a mouth or less! * LETTERS FROM RAILROAD MEN Review of Existing Conditions on Common Carriers. • MORE HOPEFUL SITUATION. Wealth of Information Contained In Communication From Officials In Re gard to Service Accorded Afro-Amer icans on Southern Railways—Diplo macy of Booker T. Washington. By N. BARNETT DODSON. Tuskegee, Ala.—The efforts of Dr. Booker T. Washington to lay before the officials of the various railroads in the south the.grievance of the colored people of that section on Account of the poor accommodations provided on the trains of said railroads for mem bers of the race have been successful. The task has required a deal of time, energy and thought and is easily the most original piece of individual work for racial betterment in public travel during the first quarter of 191-1. The attitude of the railroad mana gers and the manner in which they re gard the matter as presented by Dr. Washington may be considered as quite favorable to our cause, as the following communications from the of ficials of a number of the southern roads show: Not True of the Georgia Railroads. Mr. Charles A. Wickersliam, general manager of the Georgia railroad, says: ‘•Replying to your letter of Oct. 13, ad dressed to Mr. Thomas K. Scott, beg leave to advise that the Georgia rail road provides separate waiting rooms at stations for both white and colored passengers, and they are both furnish ed with equal accommodations and are given the same service. On practically all of our passenger trains separate toilets are provided for both men and women colored passengers; also sepa rate smoking rooms. “In other words, the passenger train accommodations for whites are sub stantially the same. In fact, at the present time the majority of the cars assigned to the colored travel consist of our newest equipment On most of our trains the news agents carry their supplies in the compartments set aside for the whites, but on some trains, where the color travel is light and the white travel is heavy, the supplies are stored in the colored compartment/* Segregation Rule Work* a Hardship. Mr. 11. U. Mudgc. president of the Chicago. Rock Island and Pacific Rail way company, writes: “1 wish to thank you for calling my attention to same and to say that I have read it with great interest. The Rock Island company does not operate very largely in the southern states, and in most of the territory where they have laws segregating Negroes, the Negro travel is such a very small proportion that it seems impossible to furnish them with as good facilities as are furnished for the white travel, which is the great bulk of travel. Notwithstanding, we try to do the best we can. “I do not believe the conditions are 'quite as bad on Rock Island trains in the south as you state are generally true in that territory, but I am taking the matter up with our operating vice president with the view of doing the very best we can to give the colored people in that territory equal facilities In several of the states through which we operate—'viz. Texas. Oklahoma and Arkansas, it is my opinion that the segregation law works a hardship not only upon railways, but upon the col ored people." Trying to Give the Race a Square Deal. Mr. George G. Crawford, president of of the Tennessee Coal, Iron and Rail road company, replied as follows: “I wish to acknowledge receipt of your letter of recent date addressed to me as president of the Birmingham Southern railroad, regarding Improve mcnts in the accommodations extended the Negro race on the railroads. Our Birmingham Southern railroad does a | very small passenger service, which is confined to a train run Saturday nights from Edgewater to Birmingham. It is. however, a subsidiary of the Tennessee Coal, Iron and Railroad company, which has a very large number of Ne gro employees. We are trying to give the Negro a square deal iti the Tennes see company and. I think, have made some progress In flint direction.” Mr. R. I). I’use.v. general passenger agent of the Louisville and Nashville Railroad company, says: “I want to thank you for calling my attention to the matter of space occu pied by news agents in cars assigned for tin? accommodation of our colored patrons. This will be given immediate attention and instructions issued to the news company that their agents must place their wares in the smoking com partment assigned to white passengers. "The other matters mentioned are be fng given serious consideration by this company, appreciating fully the Impor tance and having sincere desire to fur nish satisfactory accommodations to jur colored patrons, ns well ns to the whites. Oil our more important trains all equipment must be vestibuled and especially constructed for these trains Some of the ears assigned to colored patrons are now having smoking rooms for these patrons placed therein, and others will be so arranged aa rapidly as It Is convenient to shop them.” I LUNG DISEASE “After four in our family had died ol' Consumption 1 was taken with a frightful ceugh and lung trouble, but my life was savsd ana I gained 87 pounds through using DR.
