The Advantage of Pulling
How mans' of us realize how much
the other fellow can help us achieve
what we are working for?
How man? of us realize how much
we will help ourselves by boosting our
competitor instead of knocking him?
To those of us who do not, the
above picture, from Armour, will carry
Its own message. No amount of rea
soning or logic could show any more
clearly and definitely Just what co
operation means.
Let’s all apply It to our own busi
ness this year and wait for results.
The Star prints the above lesson la
order to convince some of the most
skeptical Negroes of Denver and Colo
rado, as well as elsewhere, what It
will mean for ten millions of Negroes
whose minds, hearts, objects, pur
poses, ambitions and work are dog
gedly set up on one certain thing—
elimination of all caste, prejudice and
Inequality for every one—or certain
things of uplift to humanity, and what
a unified action can do. This lesson
applies to Negroes who patronise
others than Ibelr own In business,
even It you or they don’t like the
man or men running in business.
Patronise him or his competitor of
color. Bvery nickel taken from the
business and professional maa of color

Min Sp«ncer Finds 201 Whits snd 66
Colorsd Bchool Children Afflicted.
New York.—The National League on
[Urban Conditions Among Negroes has
(Just completed an investigation of the
record of school children in Harlan,
New York city, afflicted with heart dis
ease. This investigation, made with
the approval of the acting superintend
ent of public schools, was made by
Miss Naomi B. Spencer and covered all
schools in the district, including private
and parochial schools in which colored
children are part of the school popula
The purpose of the investigation was
to find out bow nearly perfect the rec
ords are kept and to ascertain whether
these children are actually being re
ferred to heart disease specialists for
relief or cure. The name of evfery
child whose case had been diagnosed as
heart disease has been referred to the
heart disease clinic of the Harlem hos
pital, which for children is open on
Saturday mornings and in which any
child whose parents are not able to
provide expert care may receive treat
ment. The class for adults is held on
Thursday evening.
Miss Spencer visited seventeen schools
and found a total in eleven schools
where the records were seen of 267
cardiacs or children afflicted with heart
disease. Of this number sixty-six were
colored. The investigator* noted the
general health of the children and re
corded the following conditions among
the children affected: Nasal breathing,
defective vision, defective teeth, hyper
trophied tonsils and malnutrition.
Because of the attendant disorders,
the committee on heart disease of the
Urban league and Dr. Frederic Brush
and Miss M. L. Woughter of the Associ
ation For the Prevention and Relief of
Heart Disease thought that the colored
people of New York city should know
the danger of such conditions in their
children, these defects probably being
the forerunner of heart disease in child
hood and adult life.
In addition to the work of the cardiac
clinic of the Harlem hospital for per
sons afflicted with heart disease, the
Urban league and the social service de
partment of the Harlem hospital have
entered into an agreement by which
employment may be found for cardiac
cases less destructive to the health of
the patient. For instance, care will be
taken to give no cardiac work requiring
him to climb stairs or to perform other
laborious tasks which produce fatigue.
During health week, recently con
ducted, Dr. Robert Halsey, heart dis
ease specialist at the College of Phy
sicians and Surgeons, addressed the
members of the Manhattan Medical as
sociation at a banquet, the subject
being “The Prevention and Relief of
Heart Disease.”

on Future of Colored Americana.
On ‘Saturday, May 10, the war de
partQCit authorized the establishment
of an. officers' reserve corps training
camp for colored officers for the new
federal army at Des Moines, la., to
start June 15. The. decision, which
came as the result of persistent effort
by at*l ents of Howard university, the
central committee of Negro college
men and many distinguished men and
womta of both races, Is regarded by
qualified opinion as the greatest oppor
tunity for Negroes since the civil war.
The establishment of this camp
mark* a radical change In the policy
of tht American government. For years
Negroes, with a few exceptions, have
been excluded from holding official po
rftSonfr In the army and navy. West
Pointed Annapolis have been practi
cally £losed to them. One colored man
after has sought to secure
tralnlbg offered to other classes of
▲metlc&n citizens, but no amount of
democratic argument or political influ
ence %>uld convince the administration
of the Justice of such appeal.
The war. however, has brought a
new situation. A crisis faces the coun.
try. *&d when conscription passed the
questions immediately urose: How can
coWßfißWPn*servelwst their country?
Shall they stand on the abstract theory
of eqiufcl rights, or shall they with con£
mon sense- meet a practical situation
for the advancement of the race and
the welfkre of the nation?
Already fourteen camps have been
established for the training of white
officer*. The war department has offi
cially declared that it would be im
practical to admit colored men to any
of thoaa camps, which would mean that
the thousands of intelligent Negroes in
the rillted States would be forced un
der the conscription bill to serve as
privates with little possibility of op
portunity to rise above noncommission
ed officers.
Loyal to the cause of the Negro, be

at the same time realizing that ob
stinacy la not firmness, when the gov
ernment refused to open its camps to

sought as the uext best thing for se
curing officers.
The Negro, ever ready and willing to

that in effecting the training and equip
ping of one or two thousand officers the
central committee of Negro college
men has brought about a movement
that will not only add to the brilliant
records of Bunker Hill, San Juan and
Carrizal, but will make the Negro in
tftith and in deed a fundamental part
of the national life of the United
States, a partner in the fight for a
world democracy, establish Negro lead
ership on a stronger and firmet basis,
belie the accusation that the Negro is
fit for nothing else than a subordinate
and pave the way for greater and high
er things.
All young men between the ages of
twenty-one and thirty, having high
school education and physically strong,
are requested to send their names,
height, age, weight, previous military
exi>erience, if any, and school attended
to the central committee of Negro col
lege men, Howard university, Wash
ington, C. B. Curley, general secretary.
Examining stations will be opened at
all Young Men’s Christian associa
tions, from which applicants may for
ward their names to Secretary Curley
as mentioned above. The leaders in the
movement wish it understood that they
do not accept the camp as segregation
—they are wholly opposed to such dis
crimination—but they do accept it as a
means to an end and as an opportunity
for the 100,000 colored men to be cho
sen for war duty, to be officered by
men or their own race. The camp ac
commodations and pay will be tbe same
as those for white men. The railroad
fare of those who go to the camp will
be refunded.

are a few of the questions which they
have discussed:
“Negro Migration to the North Should
Be Encouraged;” “Ignorance Is a Great
er Menace to Civilization Than Pov

gives to its membership In Sunday
school management, are the fostering

cational institutions, charitable insti
tutions and missions. The progress of
the smaller schools to which the con
vention has contributed quite liberally
is very gratifying to the convention.
For the benefit of the public we men
