FINDING COMMON GltOUND
(I'liladclplua I'ul.lic Lodger)
A COUNTRY is not at peace and its people me not happy till racial
frictions are allayed and racial bigotry ii dispossessed; Ijll everv iui
migrant natonality lias lemned lo live on terms of law and older with
every other. F.urnpe is distracted today b nations that hae never
learned lo be neighborly; b all sort, of selfist and supei fluous boundary
disputes; by greed of grain and internecine foray.
Here in America, loo we have had Ibe unedifying and humiliating
speetacde of while people and the Coloicd people in certain amis fallliif
to find tbo coinnion dcnoiniualor of lluir inlerdependencc and the result
has been tragic. Certain brawling agitatois have lisen up lo inflame sen
timent and incite to oolrovorsy. Fnulsli books have been written and
lamentable plays produced, with a result that has been a blight upon both
race?. A Itaeo has come "up from slavery," setting to its credit a truly
marvelous accomplishment in half a cenlury, only to find ceitain doors
and parts inexorably closed for no good reaoson. One cannot argue with
blind prejudice, and the while man's ignorance of Hie black man's .soul b
worse than any black man's ignorance of books.

YOUR BOSOM FRIEND
OUK BUSINESS LEAGUE
THEHIi IS A SPLENDID CHANCE for the Colored Business LoaKur
of Tulsa lo do some real good work for Ibis community if the right thiiif
is clone ni me rigni time, i lie economic situation is growing e-
rious all ovej' the country, and this very fact opens the door of oppor
tunlty to all kinds of business organizations. The field for Coloicd com
mercial and business organizations is parlicul.u ly ripe and ready
for harvest Tulsa is looked upon as a leading city and this applies lo
our group as well as oilier groups comprising our citizenship.
Our Business League, therefore, should glaze the way lo .something ma
terially beneficial to'our people and the community generallv. Hut o do
this the men who bold Ibe leadership must necessarily realize Ibe impar
lance, of their position and be ever mindful of the welfare of the b.isiness
interests of the town. They should be men of sound, conservative busi
ness ideas and who hove made a success of their own businesses. Other
wise, they can not encourage the kind of following so uecessarv lo the
success of such an organization.
We have the down town Chamber of Commerce a-, a worthy example
The officers of this commercial body are all men who have succeeded
ability to formulate the plans necessary to work Ihein out for the good of
the entire city, illecausce the leaders of this body are all capa
ble men they arc able to command a good following among others who
are also business men but who recognize superior ability in their lead
ership and are therefore willing to put their shoulders lo the wheel and
help to push it to a success along a well planned course of action.
This is what the Colored Business League must do if it is worthy of
its name in our midst. There are many "little fellows" in our business
circles who are not affliated with the League becau.e no effort has
been made 1o draw them in that is the right kind of ell'ort and it will
" take these "little rellows" lo make the big success the League ought
to be.
It will soon he time for the Colored Uusiness League lo elect officers
and at election time xvill be Ibe rigt time for the officers nnd members to
take a definite course looking to the permanent success of the League. It
is no reflection on any man to yield to superior ability for the good of
the cnimunity and "superior ability"is what every business orga
nization needs now and will need for the next twelve moths or more.
Here's hoping that the Colored Business League of Tulsa will see its op
ivortunity and seize it while Ibe time is yet ripe.

TIIK l'OLICK l'F.KIL
THE HF.PBEHENSIBLli ACTION of certain white policemen who
persist in invading the oolni-cd section of the city, over-rid
ing Colored policemen who have bien assigned to duty in this district
has just about reached the overflow' point, and mile s something is dour
by superior officers to check this practice serious trouble will
certainly result.
Numerous occasions might be mentioned where hot-headed soft
skulled white officers have unceremoniously entered business place
in the Colored section and without any knd of legal excuse or expla
nation search the person of the patrons of such places, very often when
Colored officers are in or near the place, and without invitation
or permission from the proprietors.
Sooner or later this practice will provokeakillingofthesoleg.il hi
jacks and when that happens it will require eternal vigllenecjto prevent
a serious race conflict something that no good desires lo ste.
There have been several complaints among Colored people lately
about white officers who have exceeded their authority in their conduct
in the Colored xcctio... It .scent lo be a well established policy with
these officers to go out of tludr way to misuse Colored people. One
night this week the" editor of Ibis paper was held up by five white offi
cers while he was in a taxi within half a block of the police station and
his life threatened because be had the manhood to protest against their
high handed methods. It was an easy matter for theo brave officeis
with drawn gnus to intercept a law-abiding citizen almost with
in the door of the police station, but Hieir vigilencc counts for naught
against the thieves and things who ore making life miserable for the
citizens of Tulsa. It is high time- that this city be-made safe for law-
abiding people who demand protection not only from thieves and things
who use the cover or night and the masks to ply their tnulo witiioni re
gard for law, but from another class of the same animals who arc
cloaked with the aulhohity of law.
It must be said to the credit of Insjiector Daley and Chief Gustafson
however, that such action on the part of these officers has been, not only
without their knowledge but strictly against their specific or-
ders, and now that their attention has been called lo it, we may expect a
marked improvement in the conduct of those against whom complaints
have been made. These officers will be given to understand that in Ibe
discharge of their duties they must not lose sight of the. fact that all citi
zens have ltgal rights that evpn police officers must respect.
