Agrlcaltaro, and Public Welfare Receive Attention 90 Par Cent of Negro Teachers At tend Saiaaaer Schools White CItl - sens Sappnrt Liberal Prorrara Ig norance Cares Nothing Race Re latlona aro Improving. Hampton, Va.. Oct 12. The pres ent North Carolina program of Nerro education and health State and lo cal provides for spending $4,000,000 In tho near future. Some fifteen vrars ago Nrth Carolina was spend, ing about $4,000,000 annually for the education of all its citizens white and colored. Dr. E. C. Brooks, State Superinten drnt of Public Instruction, and Prof. N. C. Newbold, Director of the Stite Division of Negro Edurstion, held a conference recently at Shaw Univer sity, Raleigh, N. C, and presented to the leading Negroes of North Caro linarepresentative educators, min isters, business men, doctors, law yers, lodge and club officers, Y. M, C. A. and Y. W. C. A. workers, and editors the State's unified progrsms of educat'on, hea'th, agriculture, and rublic welfare. This conference was l.cld wfth a view to securirg the ac tive cooperation of the Negro leaders in apreading the good news of North Carolina's constructive progrsm. 8'ste Appropriations That public sent:mcnt Is in favor of giving more adequate support to Ne gro acnoois elementary, secondary, normal, technical, and collegiate is shown hy the General Assembly ap- priationa, which amount to $935,000. Evidences of Progress Some other statistics sre interest ing and give evidence of tho real pro gress that North Carolina is making in the direction of educating all her citizens. For the sear, 1919-20. North Carol!na spent for the salaries of Negro teachers the sum of $1,153,- 000; for the year 1920-21, $1,500,000, a gain of $350,000, or 35 per rent in a year. During the summer of 19Z1 over 3,000 Negro teachers (that is, 90 per cent) in North Carolina at tended summer schools. These bettor-trained teachers will . receive ad ditional pay. This means that Negro teachers in North Carolina will re ceive durirg the present s hool year mora than $1,500,000 in salaries. It i.t also encouraging to know that a lirge school-building program ia now well under way. For country schools there will be spent $279,000 and for urban schools there will be spent $1, 246,860, or a total of $1,525,250 for country and urban Negro schools. Appsal for Cooperation "Wo have not reached the millen ium in North Carolina," said Direc tor Newbold. "We are, however, go ing In the right direction. Will you go back into your communities and nil the machinery of progress or will you throw rocks in the way? North Carolina Js sincere in th's work for its colored people. The State wants to make conditiona better than they have ever been. Will you tell (he the leaders and the people about North Carolina's hopes and plans? We must all work together to make North Carolina what it should be Our State cannot be what it ahould be unless she does what ahe should do for all classes." Teaching People to Live Superintendent Brooks declared that North Carolina has been building on tho solid basis of truth. "Society must teach men how to live," be sn:d. "Parents in particular must teach their children how to live. This is the first time in the history of North Carolina when we have come together to lay the foundation for you to build a college for your chil dren. We have a basis on which to build. We want an honest, thoro, bnd efficient educational Institution, whoso graduates will love their peo ple and their State. -I inuiK mere is too much sense and patriotism in this State to have this program fail. I believe you are going to teach your children to live. "People are everywhere coming to tha point where they aro ready to minister to Negro needs. I am proud of North Carolina, whosa white and Negro groups are working for bet'er trained teachers. We aro organising along saner lines. Progreaa ia Race Relations . Dr. Jamea Hardy Dillard, Presi dent of the Jeanes and Slater Boards, said: "North Carolina ia th moat progressiva and forward-looking State rf the South. Ita program rests on the earth. The bent way to improve race relatione Is to knock away the underpinning of ignorance. Educa tion and the religion of Jesus Christ v. ill do this work. "Great forward movements are al ways slow. We must live here in friendship. Wa have not time to hate. We must do things. A righte ous God rules the universe. We are hfsded right Let us band together thoae who try to love Justice, cour age, and faith. There has been a steady progreaa toward better race relations during the last fifty years." iiiiB if 'vV til; i absolutely water-proof.

Secre tary of War Weeks made It known that hereafter merit will be the test for promotion to the rank ot brigadier general. Secretary Weeks, Jn a letter to General Wood, paid bigb tribute to the latter's schleveinents. "I do not consider,'' he wrote, "that It is too much to say that your efforts con tributed more to remedy our ur pre ps redness for war than those of any other Individual, and for this your country will give yon credit long after the clrcumstancea which denied you the privilege of commanding In battle the troops you trained are for gotten." In accordance with the recommenda tions of the conference on unemploy ment, President Harding Issued a public ststement ssklng governors and mayors throughout the country to organise In each community ma chinery for the correction of economic conditions along the lines worked out by the conference. Local co-operation, he declrfred, la absolutely necessary to success, and to give national co ordination to the efforts for re habilitation, a central agency will be maintained In Washington under the auspices of the conference. Secretary Hoover appointed as head of this agency CoL Arthur Woods, former police commissioner ot New York. Mr. Harding believes that a large number of men now Jobless would be given employment If congress would pass the railroads credit bill, which would mesn the psyment of aboot hnlf a billion dollars to the railroads. Therefore he Is urging that the meas ure be adopted at this session. William Howard Taft wss sworn In aa chief justice of the Supreme Court of the United States laat Monday and took his seat as the fsll term of the court opened. Two days later he took off his gown snd sppesred before tha senste ludlclsry committee to advo cate enactment of a law creating elahteen additional federal Judgeships. The Volstead art he said, haa added considerably to the congestion In the federal courts, and he continued: 1 do not hesitate to say that I believe violations of the prohibition lew will greatly Increase before they begin to grow fewer." Attorney tleneral Daugherty, also before the committee, disagreed with this opinion, saying prohibition easea huve reached their peak and viola tions will decrease, as tho people want to se the lsw enforced and the ten dency of stste snthorltles to leave en forcement to the government la begin ning to tlKiiiear.

France and Italy wlH .try to make the cancellation ot the allied debts to the United States of eleven billion dollars one of the sub jects to be discussed. Of course they hsve not said this, bnt well Informed persons believe that la tbelr desire. Now President Harding has made It known that he ia opposed to having the matter of the allied debta brought np at all at the parley. He believes It can be better settled In other wsys. snd that the conference . will have rnongh to do In couslderlng the ques tions provided In the sgenda as It now stands.

Since he bag de clared hla Intention of coming Prime Minister Lloyd George baa begun to think he. ton. will be able to attend . the parley, believing that the Irish peace negotiations will be ao well co der way that he can leave them to others for a few weeks. It la said, too. that Lloyd George hopes to ar range a preliminary conference with the represent stives 1 of France and Italy before they come over. Ostensi bly this would be a meeting to con sider the report of the League of Na tions council on the division of the plebiscite area of Upper Silesia.
