Young, Presiding Elder, held His fourth and last quarterly conference. Hs preached two of the strongest and mos‘ forceful sermons that he has ever prea ched at Newell Chapel. The house wa: Bet on hallowed fire over the two mat chless sermons nrearhed Kv Elder Yourrg. The pastor, Reverend M, J. Jones and members paid their full quarterage. HISTORY (Continued from page three) idea that the ancients were simply “a bunch of heathen”, ignorant and de praved, unmindful of the fact that how ever limited they may have been in ■some respects, without the use and en joyments of the telephone, the radio the motion picture, the automobile anf the Enplane, they were really very ssim'iar to ourselves. “History repeats itself” oifly in the epp jeation or the results of certain fundamental principles of human be havior. It does not mean that the world is going on like the endless swinging of a pendulum, getting nowhere in par ticular. The whole character and life of the people as a whole have gone stead ily upward, whatever may have been the outward form of culture and man ner of living. What is of greatest in terest and value today is not so much the actions of particular individual in history, as it is the movements and trends of the people as a whole, as hu Dr. Bethune (Continued from page one) ■the country have indicated the inten tion of hiring over 2,000 Negroes in die next few months. "The National Youth Administration is offering work experience and train ing in she-t metal work, welding, ma chine shop work, forg ng, radio, elec tricity, wood work, aviation mechanics automobile mechanics, and power sew ing through its projects throughout the country. The opportunities for training i* these fields is open to eligible citi zens between the ages of 17 and 24 re gardless of race, creed, color or na tional origin,” declared Mrs. Bethune. A large part of the burdenn for ac quainting youth with the opportunities available through the NYA and other defense training sources belongs, says Mrs. Bethune, upon the shoulders of the memebrs of the various committees. She urged the churches, schools and col leges, clubs, community agencies and the press to use every influence to get Negro youth to take fall advantage of NYA opportunities in order to help build up a reservoir of experienced and fc-ained Negro workers to be ready for ( the present and future demands. j Bethel A.M.E.

Just what historians 5000 years hence will think of our present dvilization no man can tell. It would probably be a confusing picture if they should deal exclusively with what many of us re gard as the most important events of the day. Some of our leaders in jour nalism, politics and industry are say I ing that the second world war will be j “the end of civilization”. There have I been many such “ends”, but the world | has gone on, because beneath these I "catastrophes” there has been a basis jfor progress which could not be halted Os the whole, Democracy has steadily made progress—in religion, in education in industry, in politics, in class dis tinctions, in the democracy of the sexes These wPre all part of the same move ment. History has simply b?en repeat ing itse'f. In every case the people have won, although the progress of De mocracy must be judged by a long time view—not by what happesed yes terday or today. It may w*U be tha some future civilization may learn from our follies and our mistakes—and ou successes, too. Lets not be Touchy, - t>- ■ By Ruth Taylor In the heat of crisis, strain and ex citement under which we are all li ving todoy, tempers are becoming fra yed and nerves jangled. We are g't ting touchy and upset, quick to take offense, unreasoning in our reactions to the simplest things, seeing personal af fronts and prejudices where none exist in short, we go around look ng for trou ble. Today I saw evidence of this in the hotel in which I live One woman whc has been there for years has begun tc feel that each time there is a trivia, delay in mail or in the elevator service I it is because one of the men is German and another Italian. She just knows thev don't like her because she wears all of the Allied buttons she can crowd on her expansive blouse. She has com-j pletely lost her sense of proportion and is becoming such a bore that everyone dodges her—with the result she sees the entire place as a habitition of spies My friend, the German, is getting touchy. He is becoming sullen and un- [ cooperative because he feels he is a suspect. He doesn’t think it fair, when after all, he has been a good citizen for twenty years and is just as anti-' Nazi as anyose else. But because he! feels peopl? doubt him, he won’t say where he stands end gets gloomier and more disagreeable each day. The little Italian elevator boy is com pletely bewildered—and therefor? surely He has never thought of himself as an Italian, ar.d certainly his particular brand of New Yorkese bears no tracce of any origin more foreign than Green point. Up to now his only interest in the newspapers has been the account of what the Brooklyn Dogders did or did rot do. But he is now building ur 1 a resentment and an aloofness that will bear bad fruit. What applies to these three people applies to groups all over this coun try. Whether minority of race, nation 1 ality, color, cr?ed or cass, they are get ting more touchy. And because of this feeling, they are congregating into groups—which is a dangerous thing for national unity. Today we need to be one people—tc , be united on the things in which we; 11 all b'lieve. Our personal duty is plain first to give to all others the same con sideration that we expect for ourselve and second, not to look for trouble, not to take everything personal y, or tc take offense without due cause. Let us, therefore, not be touchy—but let us meet our fellow Americans half! way in a spirit of fellowship and co operation, and work with them for the d fense of our country and of the li berties which it bestows upon all its citizens.
