Entered as second-claaa matter February 20, 1922, at the postofflce at St Paul, Minn., under the Act of March 3. 1879. Member of the ASSOCIATED NEGRO PRESS “First in Service” One of the besetting weights the Race carries is that many of its leaders function only at times their service is not greatly need ed. They seek dominant positions only to falter at the crucial moment. They seek to carry honor during a recess of the vicissi tudes of activities only to hide when the real battle is being waged. Each passing the duty to the other. Each fearing the re-action of a step made, even in the proper direction. Then when another seeks to accomplish that what they fail to attempt there is a grand scramble of leaders, in name only, to secure stellar positions. For months we have been menaced by vice, of every conceiva ble kind, nestled closely under the very windows of some of our best homes. There has been open gambling, moonshine peddling and woman trafficking before the eyes of those who will be the parents of tomorrow. There has flourished, bountifully, such insti tutions that are public liabilities, and civic nuisances without a dissenting word from those most affected. The ministry has not voiced against the flagrant violation of law and order. Our civic associations have not functioned in an advantageous capacity to better conditions. Then out of the stench of a ghetto come crim inal activities that affect all citizens alike; and awe-stricken those who have avoided the issue, seek to mitigate the flood of prejudice in a day when months of silence on their part is the true cause. There is no condition so deplorable as artificial strength. Such strength as appeal's to be firm yet give way to the slightest resist ance. Imagine a man, who seeks shelter from a storm, discovering the house he thought was stone and took for his refuge, to be of sand and crumble grain by grain before the onslaught of an ordi nary tempest. This synonymous to a community whose estab lished leaders are polished surfaces without and hollow spaces within. How long shall it be until we can depend upon our clergy to aid in correcting vices? When will our civic associations lay down their petty fights as to who had certain lights put in and who did not, and do the big things for community betterment that befit their place in the life of vicinity? When shall we expect our in dividual leaders to cast aside desire for supremacy of a personal nature and accomplish something worth while? There cannot be a better community until the clergy, first, the civic association and the individual leaders wake up to the necessity of curbing evils. When there is a laxity of building up and a prevalence of tearing down those who are responsible for this condition are those whose personal ambitions for praise have superseded their desires to serve for a more beneficial purpose. If there was ever a time when concerted action is needed be tween leaders of churches as well as civic associations, to secure better conditions under which children must live, it is at present. We heartily recommend the cleaning out of all undesirables. There is no place for the underworld character in the life of this city. It is the duty of those vested with superior position to use their influ ence in a way beneficial to humanity, especially under such excep tional conditions as now exist, instead of being a bright and shin ing light in the time of a calm but dimmed beyond recognition when they should be of usefulness. There is at least one judge in municipal court who believes in fair play, regardless of color creed. In the fact of severe criticism, Judge Finehout released six men who were held without charge in connection with the solving of a murder. The only incriminating evidence against these six men was that they were not working. They were the last of thirty-seven men sent to court by the drag net laid d»wn by the police department. They had not committed crime, neither were they charged with crime, only every Negro who could not prove he was working was picked up and sent to headquarters. We do not seek to shelter criminals in any form. We believe that perpetrators of crime should not go unpunished, no matter who they are. But we cannot concede to the correctness of keep ing men in jail, indefinitely, without charge as was done until Judge Finehout gave a just decision making them free men. There are times when officials deem certain procedure neces sary for the good of public safety. We are thoroughly conversant of this fact, but when it resorts to pleasing individual sentiment or appeasing certain factions, then it is necessary for a fair-minded decision to be made. We do not want preferential favors for those of our group who violate the laws, made to protect civilization. When laws are brok en the guilty must be punished if respect for law is to be had by the constituents of a community. But we do not condone making any man bear the brunt of powers higher up. The six men Judge Finehout released were given their liberty because no charge had been placed against them. That was the sole reason. We need more fairness measured out to men, not as a favor but as a matter of justice. ✓ LEADERS?
