(Continued from pagel)
The Permanent Outcome of The Con
The committee on arrangements
does not assume any ulitimate wisdom
as to the outcome or final results of
the conference. We invite the care
ful and prayful consideration of the
most thoughtful members of the race
who may have any advice of value to
contribute. We are determined how
ever, that the conference shall not de
generate into oratory and resolutions,
merely this and nothing more. It must
contribute some permanent effect upon
the thoughts, the sentiment, the at
titude, the determination and the en
deavor of the race as a whole.
In discussing this featurb of the con
ference with one of our profoundest
thinkers who has a stateman like in
terest in and understanding of the
complexities of the problem, he felt
that the conference would be fully
justified if it did nothing btit bring
together representatives of the various
organizations, agencies and activities
of the race who should sit down for
a week and deliberate seriously upon
some efficient plan of united thought
and action. Whatever the outcome,
it will be the joint product of our. best
minds acting in unions.
It is not the purpose of the San
; hedrin to destroy any existing or-
Iganization, but to fulfil. It is to be
I a uniting agency synthetic of the
best there is in them all. The perma
nent form of the conference might well
be embodied in committee which
should serve as a clearing house
through which existing organizations
might act on matters of race-wide
The Ministeriusm
The race can hardly hope to perfect
any effective movement without the
heartly good will and co-operation of
the church. Our religious leaders
have shown the greatest statesman
ship yet exhibited by the race. They
have organized the vast religious
estate of the race into definite, well
working denominations and societies.
These have stood the test of time and
the strain of long usage. There
is today no way to reach the mass
life of the race except through or
ganized life of the churches. Any at
tempt that ignores their sympathy
and good will is doomed to failure on
the start.
It is particularly gratifying to the
committee that all of the branches
of the Christian churches will parti
cipates in the Sanhedrin. In every
city theib is a minister’s meeting

While these meetings are for most
part for purely devotional and spirit
ual purpose, yet the situation is such
htat they are frequently forced to con
sider secular civic and social matters
for the common good of the race.
The fullest possibility for racial good
of such ministers’ unions he’s often
frustrated by denominational rivalry
and jealousy. Without attempting to
specif how this could be worked
out in detail, it is perfectly clear
that the entire ministerium of a city
might meet at suitable intervals,
where all denominational issues might
be laid aside, and the time devoted to
the consideration of the moral, civil,
and social needs of the community as
a whole.
Just how far it might be feasible for
such unions to affiliate with secular or
ganizations or how far these secular
agencies should organize among them
selves and co-operate with the min
isterial group on issues requiring
united endeadvor might appear after
trial and experimentation.
The Sanhedrin is an assured suc
cess; and yet it needs the deliberate
thought and profoundest reflection of
the Negro mind to formulate the
requisite race statesmanship.

the World” will be discussed at the

I need not attempt to show you that this ij a good resolution. Y«u
know that it is and it’s a thing that you have intended to do for these
many years. You merely have to carry that resolution out.
I have helped hundreds of people to buy their own homes and I have
more than 400 bargains in all sections of the city which I am
irg on just-like rent payments. It’s as easy as rolling off a if,
you will but muster up enough courage to start.
