Raleigh, N- C, Oct. 4.?To allay
fkstruct and to iput an end to racial
agitation aifi strife, 38 leading ne
gro educators in Nort/h Carolina
Wednesday announced a definite
jtfatfoitm upon",which the negroes in
the sta^e /may stand in peace with
the aspirations -of their own race.
The platform as announced con
demns all adivocay of social equality
or intermarriage ,between the faces
and opposes any appeal to force to
cure injustices complained of.
"Any individual' or society in or
oujt of the state 'that advocates the
interimftngl'ing of the race on terms
of social equality and .intermarriage
off races is "d'oin,g 'great harm to the
negro, for wherever this doctrine
find's lodgment i.t stirs race preju
dice in the South and threatens the
well ibeing of both races," reads ,the
statement of program, adding furth
! er on:
"Wherevefr injustice appears,
tihere is entirely too much said by
s?lf appointed leaders outside and
inside the state about an appeal to
force.Those who'intimate that such
an 'appeal will in a&y way (be bene
ficial are ;th!e most dangerous ene

AVOID THE "FLU"
BUILD UP NOW
You can almost surely escape the "Flu" and Grippy
' Colds this Fall by Taking Chasco- Vin a Most
Palatable Body-Building Tonic.
Don't put it off its, much easier |
to keep the "Flu" away than it is to
cure it.
No one would have the awful ex
pedience of a year ago repeated
hence all should take every precau
tion, especially those who are weak
nervous and run-down. They abso
lutely need Chasco-Vin.
During the last epidemic thousands
were safeguarded by taking Chascc
Vin, a body-building tonic that does
build.
It is the toning up of the system
that counts in keeping the "Flu"
away.
In conjunction with Chasco-Vin we
advise using a good anti-septic solu
tion for the throat and nose and also
that the bowels be kept open.
Chasco-Vin is sold by Edgar War
field. jr., King and Pitt Streets.
