MOTON A MENACE Robert Russa Moton, President of Tuskegee Institute, President of the National Negro Business League and also holder of many high sounding titles, arrogated to himself the right to speak for the twelve million black people of America on Memorial Day in Washington upon the occasion of the dedication of the Lincoln Memorial. Moton is a man of sparce and meagre training and is very poorly lettered in comparison with other men of his race. He cannot be accredited with depth of thought or originality; he has merely followed in the beaten footsteps of his predecessor, Booker T. Washington. He has never raised his voice in a belligerent note to the many insults and crimes perpetrated against his race in this country. He is a man who preaches submission and docility at any price. When he had the opportunity on Memorial Day of expressing himself as a man he afforded nothing more than the old stereotyped line of oratorical effulgence which has made his race the target of world-wide derision and disrespect. He failed to mention the fact that Texas had just burned five men of his own race at the stake. He could only say that he pledged the loyalty of his race to the flag. Major Moton was given authority to pledge nothing and he does not represent the higher type of black people who really feel that they are men and desire nothing short of absolute and unqualified liberty. Imagine De Valera. D. Annuzio, Gandhi or any real men getting up before the public and prostituting the ideals of their down-trodden race in such mein. Moton is a menace to the future of the twelve million black people of America and should be decried by all who have racial respect. BEWARE THE KLAN A great calm and a sudden hush followed the impromptu and unceremonious cessation of Congress’ investigation of the Ku Klux Klan. Since that time only sporadic outbursts and unexpected atroci-, ties have given evidence that the “inner circle” was still at work. Yet the operations of the Klan have been carried on artfully, ardu ously and assiduously. The Klan is by no means slumbering and it behooves us to be prepared and on guard for the “veiled knights” for they will call on us when we least expect it and their method of attack will be planned by master minds who have astutely mapped out the programme for the Klan. The black people at first hysterically learned of the “regener ated” night riders and imagination played all kinds of tricks with^ their emotional minds, but the Klan was not carefully studied and analyzed and the black people were prematurely lulled into con- , ditions of false security. The danger has not subsided and the evil forces have not reached quiescent states. The Klan still lives and the discerning eye can see its cunning craftiness in many phases of na tional and international life. In the United States the hand of the K. K. K. can be seen cutting and shuffling the political cards and recently in Oregon a bid was made for the deal. The Klan is active in politics, as the recent elec tions in Texas and Oregon proved. Yet this is merely a scintilla of evidence offered to prove that the Klan intends to play a part in American politics. If the Klan intends to perpetuate white supremacy, does it seem logical to confine the scope and breadth of its purpose to America when dark races live in South America, Asia and Africa? It would seem that the Klan would be world-wide in its conception, and so it seems to us. It appears that England is strangely interested in the dope traffic in China and the writings of Earl Grey would throw some light on the subject as well as the*cleverly contrived contributions of “Sergi Nilius” in the Dearborn Independent. It seems to us that the Ku Klan has mapped out a colossal plan, aiming by its inner circle methods to control the world. It also seems that many of English and American “higher ups” are in the scheme to build up the invisible empire. After all, the idea of clandestine masonry may be correct It at least will give thinkers some food for thought and other passages of this editorial might also be weighed before the customary and proverbial spoof and*scoff is entertained.

Ford In last week's article we discussed the edu cational and amusement value of radio and its growing commercial importance. It is not the intention to give a course of electricity in this column, but we think it is neces sary to go into the definition of seme of the fundamental parts of radio telegraphy. Ether Waves Ether is little un derstood today, but the whole theory of radio is based upon ether as a conducting medium, instead of wires as in the com mon telephone cir cuit, hence it is called wireless telegraphy. Ether is supposed to he an invisible sub stance that exists around us everywhere. It permeates rocks, wood, the pores of metals and other sub If a long wire be strethced tightly and a current of electricity applied to it, static and electro magnetic fields of force will be set up around the wire. These fields change their direction with great rapidity, traveling <<ut ward from the wire in the medium called KTHKK. with the velocity of light (300,000, 000) meters per second. Thi m are called ether waves. These waves trave throughout the universe sweeping across ol wires, pro during in them charges of electricity. Antennae Stranded bronze cable has been adopted as and home use good results c.«n be obtained with single strand copper - wire should ruu straight as possible, and have as perfect insulation from the ground as pos sible. There are many elat rau types of aerials in u>e, hut among the best in use are the tiai top, or T-shape. and thi L shape The 'J shape is advocated a the better, but for city use the L shape is more convenient and practical, because a singU wire may be used with the “lead in’’ taken from one end. Thi* wur <,.n be stretched from one fist or house to another Care should be taken, how ever, and not stretch it too rear other high powered electric wires because it is very dan gerous neither should it be 'tirtihed across streets or alleys as there are cit> ordinances against this This wire should fi* about 150 icet long. Retween tbr end*. .<nd where it is fastened to the house good insulate * must be interposed rhis i* to prevent . of rurrrnt. thus lowering the efficiency of the aerial. UNDER THE LASH OF THE^ 9 . ^ —' A column of constructive critisism of men and measures in the hope of correcting errors and evils. Upheavals and dissensions in the different religious denomina tions thruout the country indicate that all is not well in Zion. Metho dists are fighting and fuming and Baptists are splitting and declaring war and in fact the olive wand of peace is conspicuous by its absence. When shall they beat their swords into ploughshares and spears into pruning hooks? * * * * * Because it appears that Harvard University has adopted dis criminatory policies in regards the Jews the black people are much interested and thru their widest channel of newspaper intelligence comes the information that in limiting the number of Jews in Harvard that nothing was said about black people. It was needless that any thing be stated by the Harvard officials as to attitude and policy toward black people as their attitude has been made clear by positive actions and negative inaction previously. Good old Harvard no longer welcomes the “Sons of Ham.” When a group of black students were Jim Crowed in the University Dining Hall some years ago, Albert Lawrence Lowell, President of “Fair Harvard,” and grandson of James Russell, one of the abolition poets and sunlight thinkers, stated unabashed that Harvard aspired to be a national institution and the wishes of the Southern alumni could not be abso lutely disregarded. He further stated that Harvard was having a hard time giving the black people educational opportunities and the right to eat in the University Dining Hall entailed certain social privi leges which were too delicate to be handled. Black people would do well to look after their own interests as the Jews are able to take care of themselves handsomely. y .. ^nrvvw^.A'VWVVVV-/v-yy'^ v^<rryyvvvvvvvvy»WWVWVWy^y^WVV>n> “BED WITH THE LASTING LUSTRE” BRASS BED OUTFIT ij I $1.00 Cash $1.00 Per Week + «•» • * 2-inch Post, satin Ybiir Cr©4»t Is 600« finished, ribbon banded brass bed, guaranteed lacquer.
