Express Confidence in Atlanta
Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 1.—In connection
with the charges of immorality laid
against Bishop J. S. Flipper, of the A.
M. E. Church, th** A. M. E. State Con
vention of Presiding Elders and mem
bers of the Executive Board <o Morris
Brown University have passed resolu
tions expressing their confidence in him.
Bishop Flipper has been openly j
charged in the Bishops' Council with
immorality by Mrs. Cawdus Davis, of
In a lengthy affidavit Mrs. Davis
•harged that the bishop had been her
sweetheart for seventeen years, that she
had borne him a child, and that he had
failed to keep his promises to marry
Bishop Flipper denied all these charges
and stated that he would prove his inno
cence at the proper time ?ttd place.
The resolution is as follows:
The Annual Sunday School and Allen
League Convention of the African Meth
odist Episcopal Church, assembled in
East Macon, Georgia, desirous of plac
ing upon record our esteem, appreciation
and confidence in a religious leader
whose signal services in the ministry
and episcopacy has brought inestimable
and spirited benefits to our denomination
and realizing that the rise to this dis
tinction would reasonably bring about
competitive agencies, almost self-assum
ing, as he faces these vast and tar
reaching responsibilities, the ministry and
laity of the African Methodist Episcopal
Church, representing a membership of
nearly two hundred thousand in the
state of Georgia, realizing while we
cannot hear the brunt of a responsibility
so vast and far reaching, we can express
our appreciation and confidence in a
religious leader so rare and meritorious,
especially when there rests upon his
shoulders so much of vital life to a
great church and race.
We, therefore, assure the Rt. Rev. J.
S. F'lipper, D.D., L.L.D., that a faithful
constituency, not only delights to honor
him, but register our approval of his
counsel, wise lead, so that our educa
tional institution's missionary agencies,
young people's organizations, the min
istry and churches reveal a growth, both
phenomenal and unparalleled, certainly a
distinction of which but few men can
The convention, therefore, is unwilling
to wait for others upon this occasion in
annual convention assembled so sur
rounded by the official representatives of
the African Methodist Episcopal Church
in the state of Georgia, with nearly one
thousand delegates, the flower of the
church and race, w e here and now regis
ter our approval of the untold benefits
which have come to African Methodism,
and believe the continuation of bis lead
ership will yet open doors to rare oppor
tunity of which the past is but a begin
Resolved, first, that the council of
Presiding Elders, the representatives of
our schools, the entire membership oi
the Annual Sunday School and Allen
Christian Endeavor League Convention
pray that the Holy Spirit may enlarge
his vision, strengthen his intellect and
gird him for the leadership which this
great century imposes upon men who
stand in the fore front of a great church
Resolved, second, that we delight to
note his quiet and genial spirit under the
most trying circumstances, all indicative
of a safe and strong leader, whose life
for over forty years as a minister and
fourteen years as bishop makes him a
man and religious leader worthy of con
fidence and respect:
Resolved, third, ihaf we the religious
leaders of the African Methodist Epis
ropal Church in the state of Georgia,
assure the Episcopacy, the ministry, and
laity of African Methodism throughout
the world, that we shall allow no inter
est, branch or department of our great
denomination to suffer under his admin
istration and leadership.

As’the “Old Eighth” detrained in
Chicago after 15 days of training at
Camp Lincoln, Springfield, Illinois
and as they marched through the I
streets enroute to the. Armory, those !
who saw them on the line of march
will admit that they looked the part j
of real soldiers. 'The instructions in j
modern warfare were given to them by |
the officers of the regiment, many of
whom saw service overseas assisted !
by instructors of the regular army.
Every man that left Chicago and
other home stations returned a lUO per '
cent better man from a military stand- j
point. Expression of satisfaction1
came from the adjutant general. Chief
of Staff Crank S. Dickson; Senior In
structor Colonel (.'has. G Nelson, l .
S. A.; Colonel Win. If. Patterson, l .
S \ , and Colonel Richiug I. Shatul,
t . S. A. The progress and aclaptibility
of the men were remarkable. For in
stance, men who had never before
seen or even held an automatic rifle,
after three days in camp qualified as
expert riflemen, which consisted in
dismounting and mounting tin auto
matic rifle blindfolded in le.v* than
three minutes, naming all parts and
telling their use. Also the same ap
plies to the men of the machine gun
companies. Every man qualified be
fore the allotted time. One would
have had to be present in camp and
see the men under training n* fully
realize and appreciate the desires of
each man to excell.
As usual the Eighth can boast of
many honors of which ha^ always
been. It is the first regiment feder
ally recognized by the government to
parade for the Militia Bureau, State
of Illinois, the first regiment ot the
stale to parade lor the rommandct.il
Governor Lcn Small.
'Hie honorable h\ S. Dickson ad
dressed the colonel of the regiment.
I His B. Duncan and his staff of ofli-;.
:crs and his remarks stated that heh
was more than proud to have as a
uart of the Corps Area the Famous
Fighth, and further stated that we asi
officers 6f the regiment should he
proud not only from a military point j
r>t* view, but as Racial accomplish-1
ment, as we were the only Colored j
Combat Ctiit authorized by the War
Department. He was answered ad-f
hiirably by Colonel Otis B. Duncan, j
from whom words of eloquence!
flowed freely in his usual masterful
and convincing manner.
While in the Capitol City, the citi
zens of Springfield admit that the
greatest social affair held there was
that of the military hall given at the
Mate Arsenal on Wednesday evening.!
Sept. 7. 1921. Nothing was more
pleasing to the eyes than the uniforms
of the officers and men. A hand con
cert was the opening feature, under
the directorship of the commander of
the band section. Service Co., Lieut,
jas. B. Tucker. Next i grand
march headed by Chief of Staff (Jen.
S. Dickson and Mi-- Kstclle Ar

R. .Marshall; followed by Col. Otis R.
Duncan and Mrs. Shepard A Ware,

Distinguished guests were: Col.

Patterson, U. S. \.. Col. Frank L.
Taylor and family, and all C. S A.
instructors present in camp. Lieut.
Col. John II. Patton and (apt. and
Adit. James ( . Hall displayed their
genius for administration while in
camp. One can conceive an idea of
the enormity of the task, when one
considers that there were nearly 1400
present in camp, i-very mie of whom
were kept busy each minute of the i
7*oo much praise cannot be given;
Capt. Stanley R. Norvell, commander |
