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."

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

of the United States laat Monday and
took his seat as the fsll term of the

off his gown snd sppesred before tha

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
