that much of the detail matter, such
as the appointment of the committee,

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

to this distinguished visitor was evi

business, but Negro business houses,

The names suggested by the committee
of Negroes to the Board of Trade were
representative business men with na

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.
