Va. under Act of Match 3, 1879: MRS. M. T. WHITTICO . EDITOR FRIDAY, MARCH 21, 1911 IT A MAN DIE— T»y Dr. Charles Stelzle If a man di;» '••.hall h*> again? N«* — .eea ise never die: 'i im. s someth, man that lives forever You aer the same man that ! yon wei twenty years ago, but j ycur 1 dy has been replaced several limes during this period. Your brain is rebuilt twice each year. But memory remained with you clear through this trans formation. Nothing is ever destroyed, coal burns but the ashes and smoke and gases precisely equal the original balk — they have simply taken on another form. Argn'ng from the indestructi bility of matter can you believe that memory and heart treas ure and soul cultture perish? When a tree has borne leaves and fruit, its work is done. But not even the wisest man who ever Mved hat1 finished his work whc • ‘‘death’' came — he was .ins', oeginningto understand. Can this be all of life for him? Is there nothing left but a hole ; in the ground? Dees this seem in harmony wih God’s method, which in everyth' lg else brings * us on from glory o glory? Many of man’s facilities are li <e unwrapped tools in a chest - -< examined, unnamed— wait i .g for use in a futur world. We know that perfection can not be realized in the present world—there must be something ahead — the immortality which will permit us to see the fulfil ment of our dreams And this new world would be incomplete without those who struggled to bring men nearer to perfection t in the present World. Government Should Match Negro loyalty With Justice and Fair Play By Dr. Emmett J. Scott America has been described fas a founain of human hopes and individual opportunity. It is presumed to nurture the hopes and aspiraions of the humblest man, woman and child, an 1 to provide opportunities for growth materialv, cultural ly and spirit) IIow f. * sh t has Its duty and responsil. ,i this regar< is the measure > .3 neglect < its largest minority group It'* hopes are suppressed, fcti- d, ignored, shattered by a race tradition which seeks to re duce it to a status of permanent inferiority. Opportunities for advance ment are grudgingly given. The aspiration to emerge from the class pattern is met with pre mediated discouragement. In many sections of our country ihoso aspirations are thwartde uo a >rutu. and unashamed frankness which belies the tradi tions of democracy and every precedent of liberty and equality. In other sections, professedly fairer, the group is consistent ly ignored as though it were not a part of the body politic, and as though it had no inherent right to the enjoyment of privi leges and opportunities fitiely accorded others. The bar sinister of race and color consigns it to the negligible participation in affairs of govern ment, city state and nation ,and in the common pursuits of our enlightened citizenship. These things should not be. They cannot continue if Ameri ca is to realize its manifest destiny and rise to the supreme heights of that graudeur beautifully painted in song and story by our orators and writers and our historical novelists. To catalogue these ills is to recite endless, unenviabl pages of Amrican history. These are known to every intelligent mar and woman in this country, and even to school children who, in in too many instances are being trained in Schools of Intolerance which disgrace our American ism. and contrbute to national disunity at a time when every at and utterance should be at tuned to the harm: nies of na tional unity and national secur ity. Concretely: at this time of all | times when our loins are gird ed about with determination t< resist tin* encroachment Of every ism except Ameriacnism, our country is not only beset with subversive activities, direc ted by saboteurs and alien groups, but also by a hardened species of bigotry which is deny ing to this Negro group a fair ohance and opportunity t<» cooperate patriotically in those programs of preparedness which have first call upon our energies and our best intelligence. Effort after effort fails to break down the walls of prejud ice and industrial tradition. Billons and billons of dollars are being spent, and are to be spent. * ’ " ‘ r tanks, planes and ships, and the numberless ins truments of modern warfare.

Aji overwhelming sense of justice and fair play should sub merge these practices especially i at a time when Negro youth and Negro effort are being concen scripted in the army. Negro loyalty is no new thing. i It has always been laid on the altar of national peril. It will | respond now as in the long j years from the founding of the I Republic. Such spirit and loyalty should be matched by a great govern ment with equal magnanity of spirit and justice and fair p'ay.
