„ GERMAN INVASION TALE
PRETEXT FOR HAITI
SEIZURE: JOHNSON
German Invasion Story Pretext for
U. S. Seizure of Haiti, Says
J. W. Johnson
NEW YORK CITY, May 20 -
Ridiculing the statement of Robert
Lansuig, Secretary of State, under
President Wilson, that the United
States had taken Haiti to protect it
from German invasion, Janies Weldon
Johnson, Secretary of the National
Association for the Advancement of
Colored People, today called the story
a pretext. He said
"The Americans landed forces in
Haiti—which have not yet been with
drawn—on July 28, 1915, exactly
twelve months after the so-called Ger
man threat of occupation. We should
like to have Mr. Lansing tell why, if
the occupation of Haiti by Germany
was threatened, did the United States
take twelve months ro get foreea down
to Haiti to avert that threat. The
truth is, the German incident may
now be used as an excuse but it was
hot the actual re a on for our inter
vention.
"That fa! 1 of the matter is that the
United States has done in flaiti pre
cisely the things which it claims the
Monroe Doctime was established to
keep any foreign power from doing,
namely, it has obtained a foothold on
the territory then ; it has seized the
Haitian and violated
every L sfeguard which the Monroe
doetrim was de-igned to throw around
the wi ulcer republics to tile, south of
us.
"Let the administration, let the gov
ernment and let tin \merican people
come clean "it this -object. Let them
acknowledge that v. have done and
arc still doing tin Haitian people a
v grave in just i may
hav i bi --n the rea fot tcpping in,
it gives us no right to fake from the
Haitian people their well-earned in
dependence and sovereignity
U.S. Disgraced
By Lynchings,
Say Bishops
HOT SPRINGS. Ark.. May 2<X—
(Special.) Tin- official weight of the
Methodist Episcopal Church, South,
numbering two and t quarter million
members, was thrown into the bal
ance again t lynching In the quadren
nial addrem or the College of Bishops
to the general conferem c now ill sen
ston hen*. Having commented on the
negro’s "commendable zeal" in the
effort for education and on the re
markable progress made by the race
since it emerged from slavery, the
bishops continue:
"We urge our people everywhere to
- -vtr» «4tthey can tor the uplifting of the
negroes in preparation for a safe and
helpful citizenship. This implies that
they shall have complete justice where
their lawful rights are concerned. We
especially urge that everything pos
sible be done to prevent lynchings,
which are no less .« disgrace to those
who engage in them than they are an
outrage upon the help!* victims.

only a complete subversion of law
Illiteracy Is
Reduced By
20 Per Cent
WASHINGTON. D. t . May 20.—
(Special.)— 1 he public schools of the
South are making progress in elim
inating illiteracy among the negroes.
The 1920 census showed about .UK),000
less colored illiterates than that oi
1910. In 1910 the percentage of col
ored illitera* y in the South was 13.3.
In 1920 it had droppt d to 26.3 I'his
leaves 1,753.000 negroes who cannot
write.
Georgia has tin* greatest number of
these illiterate —201.115. a percentage
of 29 1 1 -ouisiana - ith 200,7 n had
the highest percentage of illiteracy,
38 5. Other states which still have
great masses of colored illiterates art
Alabama, with 2l0,n90. or 31.3 per
cent; Misiissippi, with 205,813, or 29.3
per rent, and South Carolina, with
131,422, or 29.3 per cent.
Every Southern state showed a
marked reduction in illiteracy between
1910 and 1920 1 v < ry Northern state
also showed a decrease. This would
indicate that the negroes migrating
were mostly able to read, otherwise
they would have increased illiteracy in
the North. The percentage of illiter
acy among Northern negroes is much
less than among Southern negroes,
being 26 per cent in the South and
eight per cent in the North.
Every Southern state also shows a
marked increase in the proportion <>!
negro children in a bool For the
South as a whole slightly over half of
the negro children are reported in
school, while in the North slightly
over 60 per cent are in school
Mayor and Klan Official
In Hot^Debate Over
MU
“ White Supremacy ’
CHICAGO, 111., May 20.—Accord
ing to reports in a Southern newspa
per a debate concerning the Ku Klux
Klan was held in Kansas City, Kan.,
two days ago. Mr. Harry Graham, in
ternational organizer of the Ku Klux
KJan, was opposed by Mayor Harry
B. Burton of Kansas City. Dr. Gra
ham presented the time-worn argu
ments centering around social purity,
white supremacy, welfare of the na
tion, and the upholding of the consti
tution and stated that his organization
was the largest secret service organ
ization in the world.
Mayor Burton, on the other hand,
argued that supremacy of the. white
race was a matter to be proved by its
own action. No guarantee of white
supremacy was in the constitution of
the United States which on the other
hand guaranteed equal rights to per
sons of afl colors and religious beliefs.
The Ku Klux Klan had better “Be
co-operating unmasked with the law”
than going around "frightening and
punishing in defiance of the law.”
Mayor Burton further deprecated the
fact tljat by its masking and robbing,
it opened one more loop-hole for crim
inals to murder under cover, whether
the members of the Klan themselves
were guilty or not of the outrages
charged to them.
The same Southern newspaper later
carried an editorial commenting on the
office held by Dr. Graham. The Ku
Klux Klan had been posing as a 100
per cent American organization and
the newspaper wondered what an IN
TERNATIONAL organizer could do
in an organization whose membership
,was limited to 100 per cent white
Americans.
