Mr. Shannon is the Secretary and you could possrbly get the information from him." A representative oi me rmnmittee cot in direct communication with Mr. Shannon of the board or trade. He was called and when asked If there had been any Negroes ap pointed on the committee, he replied in the negative. When asked If there would be any. he stated that he did not know. That this matter would come up before a special committee that was in session, of which one Mr. Wrenne was the chairman.

This was Thursday of last week. And judging from the two daily papers of this city, the committee was not named until Friday or Saturday. Thus the Negro was deliberately and intentionally denied any representation on the committee, or any manly showing during the President's visit. Yet thousands of I them perched themselves on street corners and .in windows along tne nnc of march, craning their necks for one peep.

That Nashville paid high tribute to this distinguished visitor was evi denced on every hand. The entire city, save a few exceptions, suspended business, but Negro business houses, and Negro institutions, for causes above mentioned, took no prominent, or active part in giving him a wel come. Yet in the distant future when some will ask "Why?" the facts as; given will be its cause and the answer:. The names suggested by the committee of Negroes to the Board of Trade were representative business men with na tional reputation. They stand as high financially as lots of names in the 2b0 that did serve, and are a credit to Nashville, where they have lived for the past twenty-five years with clear, clean, good records. Negroes should have been represented. 0 ing la a very interesting one The iWilkerson ana Mr. um wuuwm.
