Will Not 6ive Up Custody of
Training School.
Pass Resolutions In Which They Com*
mend President's Conduct of National
Institution For Women and Qirla In
Washington—Latter Celebrates Close
of Most Successful Year.
Washington.—For months there have
been wild speculations as to what
would be the attitude of the trustee
board of the National Training School
For Women and Girls, of which Mias
Nannie H. Burroughs is president, in
regard to the Rodgers recommendation.
The board met at the institution dur
ing the commencement and passed the
following resolution:*
Resolved. That the trustee board. In res
ular session assembled, declare that they
are legally and rightfully the custodians
of the National Training School For Wo
men and Girls, Inc., and have no authority
to turn the property over to any person or
persona This being the right of this trus
tee board, ws think it unwise and unnec
essary to accede to the request of the na
tional Baptist convention submitted at its
last session, 1916 (recommended by Audi
tor Rodgers), concerning the transfer of
the National Training School For Women
and Girls, Inc., as the rights and relation
ship of the woman's convention auxiliary
to the national Baptist convention are al
ready protected by Its board of eighty
trustees, as specifically set forth In arti
cle 4 and In bylaws 9 and 12 of the cor
Be It further resolved. That we have Im
plicit felth and confidence In jhe capabili
ty and unswerving integrity of the presi
dent. Miss Nannie 11. Burroughs, in con
ducting the affairs of the National Train
ing Behool For Women and Girls. Inc., and
urge the hearty co-operation of all loyal
Baptists and all others Interested In the
training and development of women and
girls for positions of trust and honor. By
united efforts we can here glorify God.
build up the kingdom. live up to our sa
cred trust and uphold the high standards
already set up at this institution.
This clears tbe sky for the school
and keeps It out of the great battle
that has been raging among national
Baptists for over two years. It was
evident from the beginning that nei
ther legally nor morally could those
trustees do less than they have done
and expect the school to live. The ac
ceptance of the Rodgers “scheme**
would have meant death and destruc
tion to a $75,000 plant that has beeu
built up by one woman in seven years.
Then. too. tbe trustees could not
transfertbe property. To would
they transfer It? Neither the woman's
convention nor the national Baptist
convention is incorporated, so they
claim. Who then would tiecome legally
responsible for the school if tbe trus
tees step down and out? It does seem
that certain of our Baptist brethren
have lost their seizes. People are not
going to Invest money in a school that
is in tbe bauds of people who are uot
legally responsible for their acts.
So far as Miss Burroughs is con
cerned she needs no vindication. Qer
work U her defeuse. She Is a hard
working, honest, conscientious, far vi
sloned. brave leader, and the people
will stand by her regardless jof Low
some of those opposed to her think
or feel. Their acta nave Seen JuS
llsbcd for eight years, and they are
simply declaring that the woman’s
convention cannot reverse Itself with
out injury to those who have carried
out the provisions of a charter submit
ted, accepted and published eight years
ago. The trustees simply stood up in
defense of the trust committed to them.
The attendance was the largest at
any meeting in the history of tbe
school. Mnuy who could not come seut
their proxies with definite Instructions
that they stood against anything that
would Interfere In the least with the
school asTt now stands.
The hearts of the trustees were
made glad when Miss Burroughs for
mally turned over a new library build
ing and reported the purchase of tbe
t'liapmau place and adjoining property.
This addition of over $7,000 in realty
and buildings makes 1017 the year of
greatest progress lu tbe history of the
school. The enrollment was the largest.
Every teacher «s laid in full. The trus
tees are in debt to Miss Burroughs, but
they arranged to start a campaign to
pay the faithful, self sacrificing bead
official. Friends have already sent in
response to an appeal over 8,000 books
for the new library. The school had al
ready nearly 4,000 volumes. Tbe com

What Is Rsally Nssdsd if Democracy
Is to Live and 8proad Its Spirit
Throughout the World For tho Good
of Mankind.
Hampton, Vn. — Hampton institute
has Just sent forth ninety-four voca
tionally trained graduates to carry the
massage of “education for service” to
colored, Indian and white people
throughout the nation. Principal H. B.
Frlssell, In presenting the diplomas
and certificates. In part said:
“We give you these diplomas as a
very alight evidence of the confidence
we have that in the days to come you
will be true to Hampton, true to jour
country, true to your God.”
Dr. Frlssell referred to the school’s
recent memorial service at the grave
of General Armstrong, where all had
consecrated themselves anew to the
service of their country,
“You have < aught the vision of the
kingdom whl. b is to come.” he said—
“the better world which Christ has
made possible tlirougli you; and now,
today, you go forth to bear the great
message—i lie message of love to ?U
mankind. Your oyes have seen the
glory of the coming of the Lord. You
have seen great nation4 turning from
the selfish rule of autocracy to the
blessed ami better rule of democracy,
and you, too. are going to help this na
tion to understand what real democ
racy means You are going forth to
serve this great country.”
Isaac Fisher, university editor, Fisk
j university, Nashville, Tenn., in his ad
dress on “The Rebirth of the World
After the War.” in part said: “When
| this cruel war is over the task before
I mankind will be to rebuild the world —
I to rebuild its wasted cities and to re*
| pair so far as possible the staggering
i economic loss which the great struggle
| has entailed This will not, however,
j be of major imi>ortance by the aide of
■ the real task. The reconstruction to
i which this world war points with lm
1 perative hand is the rebuilding of the
| hearts and spirits of men. When the
' world talks up the new work, which it
j must do jitter the war. the new teach
ings of home and school and church
! and press *must be not dominion, not
! power, not force, not arrogance, not
I racial proscriptions, but the virtue and
conquering value of the humble and
| contrite heart tilled with love for all
and the meekness which shall inherit
| the earth. • • •
i “You an help make it easier for
I democracy by seeking to come into the
j possession of common ideals—the high
est ideals of the nation, those ideals
1 which roj»rpsent Christ. You can help
j make it easy by learning the beautiful
! things that have hel{>ed make civilisa
tion grand and glorious through the
years ami by mhking those lueals your
own—not ideals of colored people, not
ideals of red men. not ideals of white
men. but the ideals of Christianity.
What are some of those ideals? First
! of all there is righteousness. You can
' make it easy by standing for the kind
of service that makes the good of all
the people the highest aim of life.
•If this war is to prove anything it
j is that men may not hereafter think in
terms of race. White people cannot
think any more, after this great world
tragedy is over, in terms vf the white
race. The black race cannot think any
more in terms of their own little social
group. Tn everybody watching on the
far flum: battle linos of Europe almost
; all of the artificial distinctions of caste
and race have been obliterated. The
lesson w hlch burns itself into the con
sciousness of people Is that men here
after shall live for the one common
“We must insist that schools like
Hampton,, where the Negro sees the
j white people at their best and where a
common meeting ground Is established
for all the races, shall be maintained
for years and years to come.
“I want Tuskegce to remain forever
as Dr. Washington built It—manned
and conducted by colored men and wo
men and a monument to their ability
and genius; but 1 want Hampton and
schools like it to endure as open gate-,
ways to mutual understanding and mu
tual help.
“Sec to it that schools of the Hamp

President and Congress ■
Independence of Ireland I
We, as American citizens, respectfully state to the Government
of the United States that Ireland is a distinct nation, deprived of
her liberty by force and held in subjection by England by military
power alone. As America has entered the war for tha preservation
! of democracy and the freedom of small nationalities, this Govern
ment is in honor bound to apply this principle impartially in all cases
! of peoples held in subjection, whether they bo under tha juriadio-*
tion of Germany, like Belgium, or of England, like Ireland. As Amor
ica cannot be a party to any schema of world-peace which with
holds from any nation the God-given right of freedom, the only final
settlement must be the complete independence of Ireland.
America has the right, by her entry into the war, to demand it
from England, not in the Peace Conference at the close of the war,
; ; but now.
We therefore respectfully urge upon the President and tha Con
gress the necessity and good policy of giving a great example to the
I world by insisting that England shall grant Ireland complete na-<
tional independence. We earnestly hope that, like Cuba, Ireland
will be made free by the action of America.
