WORLD WAR
Br BILL PRICE.
Vashlneton colored people who are
today bo proud of the achievements of
the toldlers of their race In the hot
flfihting going: on In France would
have cause for greater pride and Joy
ous loyalty If they knew all the fact
regarding; the race's war activities
that are to be had In the office of
Emmett J. Scott, who is the personal
asrlstant to the Secretary of War in
matters concerning the race.
Scott was for many years the sec
retary and confidential assistant to
the noted Booker T. Washington and
is. although a young man, regarded
a one of the greatest and wisest
leaders of his people in this country.
Gathers Data Far Speakers.
Data gathered by Scott ami his
assistants, including William H.
Carls, will soon be used by a com
mittee of one hundred prominent col
ored public speakers who will talk
in all parts of the country on the
war alms of the Government.
"Twelve million necroes of this country.
are today imbued with pride because of
the large part the American colored man
is playing In the world war ror liberty
and democracy . saM Scott to The Times
1 representative.
up to July a. last, there naa neen
mobilized for military service 227.SU ne
groes, and orders that have since gone
out tare increased the number to nearly
one-quarter of a million. Some of these
men are valiantly defending the honor
of J their country overseas, while' the
others are In camps and cantonments
prf paring for overseas duty.
It is proud claim of Scott's office
that proportioned to population a larger
percentage of colored men have been
certified for military service and a
smaller percentage have claimed exemp
tion than the white population up to this
time.
Take Special Training.
The race, too Scott says, is grateful
that the colored men have been given
the same chance as white men in spe
cial training in mechanical and tech
nical instruction. There are 4,000
young colored men In training for
radio operators, automobile mechan
ics, truck drivers, bench woodwork
ers, blacksmiths, wheelwrights, elec
tricians, pipefitters, carpenters, ma
chinists, and other lines, and large
numbers of them are receiving in
struction In technical and mechanical
subjects in fifteen of the leading col
ored, schools of the country. These
Institutions include Tuskegee, Hamp
ton, Wllberforce, and Howard Uni
versity of this city.
The colored soldiers are In mobili
zation camps in every part of the
country, North and South, and there
is little friction. The men are work
ing hard to become an efficient part
'of the great American army that is
to- drive the Hun back across the
Bblne and march on to Berlin.
"Colored people were greatly
heartened at the success of the col
ored officers' training camp at Fort
Des Moines last year," Scott said to
day. "There was; a thrill of pride
irt the fact that 750 commissioned
officers won honors at this school.
There are now nt less than 1,000
Including those who were In the
commissioned officers In the service,
regular army when the war started."
i X Discrimination Allowed.
Secretary Baker, of the War De
partment announced some time ago
that he would brook no discrimina
tion in bringing men into the army.

This Aged Californian
Had "A Little Bunch of
Whiskers on His Chin"
REDDING. CaU July 18. Marlon
Francis McGhee, eighty-two, whose
boast was that he had the finest
growth of whiskers In the world. Is
dead at his home here. His beard
was six feet, nine inches long. He
had never shaved his beard, which
started sprouting when he was sev
enteen. It required siztyflre years
for his beard to attain Its maximum
luxuriousnets. He kept it braided
and pinned up under his chin, never
unfolding It In public except on rare
occasions.
Justice done a colored man as quick
ly as a white man.
The Ninety-second and Ninety
third divisions of the army are made
up of colored men and all branchas
of the military service are included
in the two divisions.
There are thirty colored men in the
army as chaplains, ranking from lieu
tenant to major. 150 more are en
gaged In T. M. C A. work, with the
number steadily Increasing. CoIoed
women are in charge of hostess
houses at all points, and schools for
the banishment of Illiteracy are being
organized everywhere. The negro
soldier Is receiving careful Instruc
tion in .the dangers of the social evil.
and his sense of manhood is being ef
fectively appealed to.
The negro's natural love for music
and song is being encouraged to
make his hours in camp happier.
Even in Europe his melodious voice
has attracted wide attention.
In civilian life the colored man Is
active in all directions for the cause
of his country. He is buying and
selling Liebrty bonds and War Sav
ings Stamps, contributing to ths
Red Cross by the thousands of dol
lars, and giving what he can to the
T. JL C A. and other war funds. He
Is working in war gardens as he
never worked before, and In the
theaters he runs over with pride when
ne sees pictures or the American aol
dler at work.
Organising Red Cross.
Red Cross units have been organ
Ized by colored people In nearly every
community, and these units have been
recognized as auxiliaries to the chap
ters of the Red Cross. Several thous
and trained colored nurses have reg
istered with the Red Cross for ser
vice, and many of them are expecting
to be called.
"The chief complaint of the negro
soldier is that he cannot get into the
thick of the fray sneedllv enoueh."
Scott declared. "The record of his
voluntary enlistments shows that he
is not being forced to fight, and Ger
man propaganda will not phase him.
Colored soldiers have earned and ob
tained the French Croix de Guerre.
An army wag has described negro sol
diers as 'fast black, warranted not to
run.' The humblest black man is
anxious to duplicate the feats of the
heroes of his race and to rise to po
sitions of honor and trust. Very re
cently a young colored man walked
Into the War Department and asked to
be allowed to enlist. He had been de
nied that privilege at Birmingham.
Ala. He paid his own railroad fare to
Washington. He was very proud when
be received his enlistment papers.'
A Washington colored man today
holds the highest commission of that
race In the army. He is Benjamin
Oliver Davis and he Is a lieutenant
colonel with the Ninth Cavalry, In the
Philippines. Charles Young, a colored
graduate of West Point, rose to the
rank of colonel before retirement.
Many young colored men hope to be
come Youngs and Davises.

(Continued from First Page.)
Inspection standards relaxed, as pro
posed, four times as many dairies
would be able to sell milk here as do
now in other words, that at least
3,600 dairies would be permitted to
send milk here produced under condi
tions beyond, the control of the Dis
trict, "How would we know from where
the milk came 7" one official asked.
"We would have no .official knowl
edge of the facts, as I see it."
Producers Object.
It is learned also that the milk
producers now complying with the
District rules and selling here are
not disposed to accept the proposed
relaxation of the requirements, and
will probably fight It at tomorrow's
public hearing. The meeting prom
ises to be a "hummer," with the
housewives. Health Department offi
cials. Inspected milk producers, and
the uninspected distributers in at
tendance. "I shall attend' the hearing tomor
row on the question of relaxing the
rigidity of the milk inspection rules, '
said Mrs. F. L. Ransome. chairman
of the woman's division of the Dis
trict Council of Defense, today. Her
attitude toward the proposal of the
milk distributers that the District
Commissioners permit milk to be
sold in Washington from dairy farms
not Inspected by District officials Is
representative of the views of pracs
tically all who have expressed them
selves on the matter.
C. W. Darr, of the law firm, of
Darr, Keyser, Whlteford and Darr,
said:
"Yes; the milk distributers will ask
the suspension of certain rules in
order that perfectly good milk pro
duced on farms not inspected by Dis
trict officials be permitted to be
sold here. If that be not done, the
District will be short of milk before
tae summer ends. The milk referred
to Is in Jurisdictions otlsr than the
District It would, of course, be In
spected and treated here by pasteuriza
tion after being received and before
being sold."
No Association.
Mr. Darr's firm Is acting for no
association, he said, but for certain
distributers.
The proposal in brief Is that the
production of the milk desired to .be
sold here be carried on outside the
vision of the official inspecting eyes
of the District Health Department.
The conditions surrounding the pro
duction the health of the cows, the
sanitation of the stables, all the ele
ments that enter into modern dairy
operations would be beyond the
jurisdiction of the District authori
ties.
If there were a herd of cows in
fected with tuberculosis there would
be no -power here to prevent the In
coming of milk produced by that
herd, and no official knowledge here
that there was such a tubercular herd
in existence.
Dr. Fowler, Acting Health Of
ficer, said: "1 know nothing as to
I what the milk distributors are to
ask tomorrow at the hearing. Cer-
I tain (M.trlhiitnr f hreiif-h f hjtf nt.
torneys asked a hearing, but did not
stte for what they wished tt. Until
the hearing shall have been held.
I cannot know any more than I do
now, and cannot of course comment
in any way on the subject."
