By Georgia Huston Jones LEST WE FORGET OUR OWN TEE EXIT OF BITHER ? EXCEPTIONS TO THE RULE CONSTRUCTIVE PROGRAM ADOPTED. The Chicago American is appealing to hi;: hearted Chicagoans to take a lit tle orphan into your homes on Thanks giving day, and the iohoiI will tint he in vain, but, LEST WE FORGET, we feast-loving, pros perous Negroes of CF.icago, L FI S T i \\ E F O K G E T, | plan tiow for a lit- S tie stranger to 1 grace your board 1 on that great day. H \\ ho knows?—you may entertain at.^c angel unawares. Perhaps you may discover a little, ciarK-eyeu uariing who would fill that aching void and satisfy that neart hunger you have failed otherwise to appease. i hen, too, all little, dark-eyed darl ings of dusky lute are NO"! in institu tions. Most of them are without—just without your door. To the shame of Chicago, with its wealthy Negroes and so-called able lawmakers, there is lit tle or no provision made for the care and training of Negro dependent chil dren. Like Topsy, they "just grow!” So look about you, Mr. and Mrs. Chicagoan of Color, and remember that the children of today are the citizens of tomorrow; o'f all the worlds work none is more important or should bring greater returns than that of CHILD SAVING.

While some hailed his coming as a godsend, others there be who viewed it with fear and trembling. It goes without the saying that Oscar De i Priest is a powerful factor on any po-1 litical battleground on which he hap pens to "pitch his tent." But when he j comes into the Third Ward with the open and avowed intention ot ridding it of that Pompous Autocrat and Arch enemy of Negro Progress, William A. Either, who has held the whip hand over the Negroes of that district in the name of Mayor Thompson for years, why, even those, who are not of the camp of De Priest are ready and anxious to join hands with him to smash the cruel hand of Bithcr—he who for years has waxed fat on the strength of the almost “solid" Negro vote of this ward and in exchange has given but gingerly of even the small est crumbs from his well-filled political It is hut fair to state that Mr. De Priest has ACHIEVED whatever of honor ami public trust he may enjoy. He has EARNED whatever of success has come his wav. He is but another proof that I i:\DERS ARE BORN, NOT MADE. Some that have been made to order are "weighed in the bal ance and found wanting." They found the mantle of "greatness trust upon them" too weighty for their puny shoulders. Leaders without number • have flashed for a moment on the pub lic horizon and then sank inevitably into oblivion, unwept, unhonored and unsung. But for twenty vears the writer has been told OSCAR DE PRIEST has been a forceful figure in the political life of Chicago. It must be understood that ?dr. Either is a leading light in De Priest’s own ranks, and his cour ageous stand can then be more full’ appreciated. If the advent of Oscar De Pried in to the Third Ward means the elimi nation of Either the right to place the names of .Negro candidates on the ticket (and this right has hitherto been denied us) and the distribution of pat ronage according to our voting strength, then who can blame the \e-( proes of this community for forming a j little coalition of their own in such a cause? HON. JOSEPH H. HAAS, the best j Recorder Cook County ever had, has givdn more positions to Negroes in his j office than any of his predecessors. Not only has he .given recognition to Ne gro men, but he has employed in his office many women of the race in vari ous clerical capacities, whose salaries • from $7 50 to $10 per day. Col ored men mav find some difficulty in being "placed” in various offices even iter having helped to win those of fices by their political activities, but the obstacles in the way of Negro men is as nothing compared to those barring the path of the colored woman. It is unfortunately the exception for a col ored woman to be offered anything more than a menial position, such as attendant, cleaning, etc., regardless of her intellectual ability or services ren dered, HON. JOHN F. DEVINE, Clerk of the PROBATE COURT, WHO EMPLOYS COLORED STENOG RAPHERS in his office, and HON. JOSEPH F. HAAS are TWO NOTA BLE exceptions to the general rule. WOMEN WILL PLEASE REMEM BER. The Women’s Republican Club of the Third Ward has enlarged th scope and field of its activities and i now. thanks to the earnest work nf few determined women, the Color.

The numb'-r of women interrs*. ; j. ihr affairs of government is negligible compared to the masses and particu larly is this ti.ic of our women Through affiliation with churches, frr ternal organizations and social club THE COLORED WOMEN’S A SCO CIATION OF COOK COUNTY hopes to teach every colored woman how to intelligently use the ballot. The ballot rights carry with it not only certain privileges, but grave re sponsibilities. When one stops to con sider that one can neither live or die, marry, he born or buried without com ing under the jurisdiction of some law. either municipal., state or Federal, then • ’-""in realize that the results of political action reach not only around but within the four walls of home. So for that reason if no other (lie women of the community should he interested in polities, Sr> ioin the Colored Wom en’s Association of Cook County and learn how to protect not only your o. a interests but those of your men and your children.
