The Board was largely attended, there being members here from all over the State. Such matters as were of im portance to the educational interests of the Baptists were considered. Sev eral new members were added to the Board of Trustees of Roger Williams University. MASS MEETING CALLED. A call for a mass meeting issued this week is as follows: It is generally admitted that the re lations between the white and col ored people of the South are not in all respects what they should be, and there are but few who will hon estly claim that white and colored people have equal treatment before the law. There is a profound feeling among the colored people' that some thing should be done to inaugurate an era of justice and fair play. Be yond doubt many of the ills under which the colored people suffer are removable, and will disappear when a more friendly - sentiment for all worthy aspirations on the part of col ored people has been developed among their white neighbors. With a view to setting In motion forces that will . eradicate suspicion and distrust between the-two raceu and substitute " therefor mutual con fidence and helpfulness upon a basis of even-handed justice to all, it has been deemed wise to issue this call for "a public 'mass meeting' to 'assem ble on Wednesday night, January' 20, at 8 o'clock at the First Baptist Church, Eighth avenue, North," Rev. W. S. Ellington, D. D.; pastor. All persons In sympathy with the object of this meeting as set forth above are invited and urged to be present. The call is sent out by Rev. SUTTON E. GRIGGS.

The subject of "Negro Dolls for Negro Babies" is attracting consider able attention among colored people and is being discussed by some of the most prominent colored men and women in, the country. In a recent Issue of the "Colored American Maga zine" Counselor E. A. Johnson, of New York, who was for many years dean of the law department of Shaw University, Raleigh, N. C, has a unique article, in part as follows: ' "I am convinced that one of the best ways to teach Negro children to respect their own color would be to see to it that the children be given colored dolls to play with. The chil dren do not know anything about prejudice themselves, and in most cases they prefer white dolls to color ed ones, but this idea could be easily removed from their young minds by putting in their hands at the onset good-looking colored dolls. To give a negro child a white doll means to create in it a prejudice against its own color, which will cling to it through Jife. ' I believe we should not rear our children to hate the complexion that God has given them, and thus sow the seeds of discontent with themselves that will cause them to feel inferior all through life. A dark skin is as good as any other, providing the per son who wears it is deserving. There Is nothing disgraceful In black or brown. No person despises a black horse or a black chicken. A black cat Is sometimes looked upon with super stition, but not prejudice. In some countries the devil is painted as white and the angels as black. It is more a matter of education than anything else that we have so much of it in America, not only among the whites, but among the colored people them selves who have been taught from in fancy to hate a black, face and prefer a white one. In 1891 I wrote a his tory of the colored children in which I said as follows: 'A more modern theory of color is that the color of the skin is a shield against the penetrat ing rays of the sun. Most of the birds in tropical countries are colored, while those of the Artie circle are white. The white bear comes from the Artie regions. The color theory was also quite popular formerly as an argument in support of the curse of Noah.' We hold that the color of the race is due to climatic influences, and in support of this view we quote In reference to Africa as follows: 'As we go westward we observe the lieht color predominating over the dark, and then again, when we come within the influences of the damp sea air, we find the shade deepened into the general blackness of the coast population. There are. five distinct tyres of races. The Caucasian is white; the Mongolian is yellow; the Malay, brown; the American Indian, rpd: and the Ethiopian, black. The wisest of men have always been puz: zled to account for these different I PHONE. MAIN It NASHVILLE. XLll Cor.

Let the black face hold itself up as well as any other, not in a haughty arrogant way, but in a manner that will say to the world as did Solomon of old, 'I am 'black but comely,' and comely may herein refer to more than simply good looks."
