SCOTT, COLORED WAR SECTY., MAN OF BIG ATTAINMENTS Newnrker Who Met Him Gives Im pressions of Him at Work By Robert A. Travis, In Newark (N. J.) Daily Ledger, Oct. ( Some months ago, or, to be exact, on Friday, May 17, George Creel, Di rector of the National Bureau of In formation, at Washington, D. C., said to the writer, in speaking of Emmett J. Scott, special assistant »o the sec retary of war, “A wonderful men. a remarkably efficient man, brilliant, of inestimable value to the War Depart ment.” These words were in our mind as we were b»irg led by a marine Thurr-, day morning through the lobby and 1 down the aisle of the west side of the , first floor of the War Depart ment : building to Room 131, in which Mr [ Scott has his office. Entering (he main entrance of th" War Department building, one is im mediately impressed with the air of business-like bustle. Here there is no j loafing. Everyone is on his or her; job with 100 per cent energy. Entering the office of the spec ! al as sistant secretary, one realizes that w. here is a workshop. Four expert male | stenographers are seated at desk e ! piled with correspondence and printed mater in orderly array, pounding tvp - writer keys at a high rate of speed j We are greeted by one of these. Our errand being stated, we are advised 1 that Mr. Scott has stepped out of the j office for a moment, and we are intro ; duced to Private Secretary Davis. One j glance at Secretary Davis, the shape of his head, the alertness of his eye, the ' air of high efficiency which seems to be all about him, and it is quickly realized that one of the things which has contributed to Mr. Scott’s sue cess is his ability to pick men. A five or ten minute wait, and See j rotary Scott enters. Even in the for- I nullifies of greeting one- could not re- i Keep Well! HOW TO AVOID INFLUENZA AND OTHER SICKNESS Cut this out of the paper and hrng it up in a convenient place. Rules for those at work Walk to work if possible. Avoid ihe person who coughs or sneezes. Wash your hands before eating. Make full use of all available sun shine. Do not us'- a common towel. It spreads disease. Should you cough or sneeze, cover j nose and mouth with a handerchief i Keep out of crowded places. \V *lk in j the op-n air rather than go to j crowded places of amusement. Sleep is necessary for well-being— j avoid over-exertion. Eat good, clean food. Keep away from houses where there ! are cases of influenza. If sick, no matter how slightly, see a physician. If you have had influenza. «tay in b’d until your doctor says you can safe- j ly get up. o Suggestions to those who are nursing the sick * Keep clean. Isolate your patients. ! When in attendance upon patients, ! wear a mask which will cover both the nose and the mouth. When the mask is once in place do not handle | It. Change the mask every two I hours. Owing the the scarcity of gauze, boil for one half hour and; rinse, then use the gauze again. W'ash your hands each time you come in contact with the patient, or any one else. O Rules for everyone to follow If you feel a sudden chill, followed by muscular pain, headache, backache, unusual tiredness and fever, go to bed at once and send for a doctor. See that there is enough bed clothing to keep you warm. Open all windows in your bedroom and keep them open. % Take medicine to open the bowels freely. Take some nourishing food—some cereal, toast, fruit, etc., are the best. Stay in bed until a physician tells you that it is safe to get up. Allow no one else to sleep in the same room. 1 u BEAR DRUG STORE BOEHMER S PHARMACY MASON’S PHARMACY OWL DRUG STORE Who esteem it a privilege to contribute their share in the PREVENTION of influenza infection. ! si«t the temptation to seek to study ,the subconscious man while gazing j into the face’ of the visible.

Mr. Lee, the new : owner of this modern establishment I is merely keeping pace with the times i So many colored people are coming J into Phoenix recently, that there are | scarcely enough houses of this kind Ito accomodate them.

Over from Ray— Mrs. Jerry Hinton, who left Phoe nix last week for a short visit with her son Archie Lewis at Ray, Ariz. returned to Phoenix Monday evening and brought Archie with her. Archis is a former resident of this city and is well known here. He is the Tri bune representative at Ray and is responsible for the intensely interest ing news that has made the RAY COLUMN so popular with our read ers. Mrs. Hinton will visit here a few days and then return to her home in Los Angeles, Cal. Archie returned to Ray Thursday morning. He took a good look at that beautiful $35 dia mond ring in the window at Sheldon’s Jewelry, 106 N. Ist ave., and declared he was going to present that ring to his wife for a Christmas present. All right, Archie, whoever sends in the greatest amount in subscriptions be fore midnight, December 7, 1918, can have it. Somebody will have to hustle if they expect to beat Ajo, for oui representative there is now leading Yuma is a close second, with Prescott third; Tucson is threatening, Douglas and Bis bee arc neck and neck; Flag staff and Ray have let us know that they are in the race; Prairie View. Mesa, Globe, El Paso and Las Cruces | arc running well with Prairie View I leading by a nose. So now, Mr. Lewis, you can see what you are up against. Mrs. Lewis may wear that ring and then again, she MAY not. Strangers Galore— Never before in the history of Phoe (lix have so many colored peopli graced its confines. Men, women : children from every section of tl. globe are here and more a-ri in; * daily. One meets so many stranger these days until he begins to wond°r- What s it ail about?” It’s because Phoenix is the biggest little town ir ’he Southwest and the best little city in the U. S. A. 3nly a Few Left— Mr. J. W. Snell, the popular news Wler, at 27 South Second street, said hat he has only a few copies of the Crisis left and that all who wanted >ne of these magazines would have o hurry. Mr. Snell is doing a “land slice” business with newspapers and nagazines. He bandies all the Negro journals in the country and if your "home paper” is rot in the bunch ’ne’ll get it for you. He is on the job lay and night and you can purchasi Tried fish as well as newspapers a' 27 South Second street. Distinguished Visitor- Dr. W. E. Rainwater, a practicing ohysician of Ardmore, Okla., was a business visitor in Phoenix this week Dr. Rainwater has been visiting his brother, Mr. E. E. Rainwater of Yuma and also his son, who is in that city or the benefit of his health. The doc or was surprised to learn that 1,500 colored people are living in Phoenix. He spent all day Tuesday and a part of Wednesday looking over the city and expressed his disappointment in finding so few business enterprises op "rated by our people. “With a colored population of 1,500 individuals,” said Dr. Rainwater, “you should have at least one drug store, an up-to-date res taurant, an amusement park and sev eral mercantile establishments owned \nd operated by members of the race.” vVe assured him that on his next visit to Phoenix he would find all these things in operation among the enter prising colored citizens, of this great city. Dr. Rainwater left Wednesday ■veiling over ihe Santa Fe for his home in Ardmore. Incidentally, the TRIBUNE will follow'. Rev. Herring Doing Nicely— Our California subscribers, who are mostly former residents of Phoenix or tsome other part of Arizona, have made a special request for news every week that will inform them of the condition of Rev. R. H. Herring, pas or of the A. M. E. church here. They suggest that w'e insert a small article each week so that his California friends may keep posted until he has fully revocered from the effects of the broken leg. We are pleased to lay that, the reverend and wife are both doing nicely. Rev. Herring per formed a marriage ceremony about two weeks ago, so you may know he is feeling pretty good, personally, we believe Rev. Herring and wife are in the same boat w'ith the editor of the Tribune. Jhe editor feels that he has received his share of verbal aid and what he would very much like to re ceive, right along through here is ma terial assistance. We want more sub icribers to the Tribune so we can trow into a regular eight page paper. Indications are that we shall have to give you eight pages this week; if we do, it will not be a regular thing, be cause we must have 7,000 subscribers before we can keep up an eight-page paper. Actions speak loudest. Place your own interpretation on this. o There is nothing so scarce in the world as’ truly great men; men who by their talents, their patriotism, and love for humanity make an epoch in history. Moses, Jesus, Mahomet, and Luther made epochs in the religious world. Washington, Napoleon and | Lincoln made epochs in (he political world. Homer, Herodotus, Shake speare, Dante, Goethe, and Gibbon made epochs in the literary world And there were other great lights that made their age glorious. President Wilson is pitching giit ■dge ball. Bulgaria struck out; Aus ria fouled out to Lansing; and two itrikes called on Kaiser Bill. No -uns, no hits, no errors. o SPANISH “FLU” (Continued from page 1) as much of this disease as possible out of their cities and towns. Hawaii and the Influenza A few months ago the influenza vis ited Hawaii, and I don’t think there was a city that escaped this epidemic. Ft. Shatter and Schofield barracks were especially hard hit. Well, to tell the truth, the people of that island, just like the people of Arizona, thought the disease would never roach them. They claimed that they were too far out in the Pacific ocean for anything like that to reach them. But it did, and this is what happened: I was on duty at the quarantine camp, June 17, 1918, when everything began to go wrong. The Hawaiian Na tional Army was assigned to Schofield barracks for duty, and two days later the physicians made a thorough in spection of the company, and reports reached department surgeon that ev erybody was well. At 5 o’clock we commenced to receive ambulance calls, one right after the other, until every ambulance was busy, day and night. At first the doctors were un able to give a correct diagnosis of thees cases, because they had never REV. S. E. NEWELL’S 1 POLITICAL VERSION i Two great political parties are now arrayed against each other in the ' great State of Arizona. The Negro! asks: "With which party should I affiliate?” I answer by saying that j he should affiliate with no “certain” party any more than the American white man does. The Negro has always proved him self one hundred per cent American. He lived two hundred and fifty years 'in chattel slavery on American soil. He learned to follow the examples set by the proud Anglo Saxons. They are j ■ ble to see the necessity for arrang ing themselves in two great parties. j Now, whatever is good for the Ameri- j con white man, is also good for the ; American Negro. The Negro should no longer allow any party to “put a ring in his nose”, and lead him about at will. In the year of 1886, one of our great repub lican leaders in the person of the Hon. H. Clay Evans of Tennessee, caused the thinking Negro to realize (hat the republican party had decided to make the Negro go for himself This honorable gentleman introduced the first bill of disfranchisement in the U. S. congress; namely “The Lily White Republican Bill.” Every rule of reason and every law of logic will tench us that the Negro can never hope to derive any poli tical benefits so long as he continues to follow the party that is simply tolling him along with promises. Ev ery Negro man and woman should make good use of the ballot now and for all times to come. We should spurn the offer of a job or a few dol lars for our vote. Whenever a poll tician begins to tell you that he fought to free your fathers in the dark days of the 60’s, just tell him to go to Heaven. The Negro fought for the white man long before the white man ever fought for the Negro. Yes, It was in 1776 on Boston Com mons, that Christopher Attacks, a Negro, was the first human being to shed his blood in the defense of Am erican independence. It was in a ’ * ■ Pianos, Players, Victrolas, Records Headquarters for MuStCdl” ~ FIRM THAT hADt 7 V'pimV Redewill Music Company %ECI/y Established in 1881 VVy 22-4 WEST WASHINGTON STREET \/ PHOENIX, ARIZONA ________ . . t before been called on to treat such a peculiar disease. Later discoveries disclosed the fact that, this was influ enza. After that, the quarantine camps were full, the quarantine yards were full, and there were more on the | outside waiting for admission. We I had to put and even this was not enough, be cause they were still coming. Many were forced to lie in the hot sun until we could fix a place to receive them. In order to accommodate all we were compelled to use the old Vets’ Hall as a hospital. We had fully 18,000 patients. It was at this time the Med ical Department had to work day and night in order to administer to all. We were assigned to no particular section, consequently we had to skip from tent to tent in order to give each man the same amount of attention. When we made a second investigation of the cases, we found quite a few had developed into pneumonia. Then things began to grow worse. The death rate began to add up on us. You would look at your patient this minute, and the next time you came around he would be dead. We had to take other steps to prevent the death totals from piling up. On the third examination we found a few cases of meningitis, measles and mumps and had to nurse them also. We segregated these patients from the others. So, you see, one can never tell what’s coming to him, if we allow influenza to have its course in and around our cities. Symptoms of the Disease What I want to impress upon the reader is, that Spanish influenza does not select its victims. It attacks the old as well as the young. So don’t get the idea that you are going to miss catching it because you are too young or too old. It will get you if you .are only twelve years old the same as it wcfuid a person seventy years old. That is one reason why I so strongly advise that every precaution be taken to prevent the spread of this disease. Saturday, November 2,' 1911 ........

From that* fime, until the present day. the Negro! has been sacrificing his life for the! greatest government in all the world;! a government that is now fighting for! human rights and justice—a world E democracy. 9 In conclusion, I desire to say that I the present war Is one in which we I should all be interested. Not passive ly, but actively. We should make per sonal sacrifices in order to bring this bloody conflict to a speedy and a suc cessful end. I believe it Is the plan of God to have the Negro know that he is part and parcel of this great government and not just the handy pair of tongs with which a political party may pull clinkers out of the fire. In the words of the Immortal Lincoln: “You carl fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time, but you CAN'T FOOL ALL THE PEOPLE ALL THE TIME”. Politicians! The Negro is ) awake. —Advertisement. , You will know when you have got the influenza, as it always attacks the per son, first, with a chilly feeling, then comes a high temperature, say 103 to 104, rapid pulse and respiration. Necessary Precautions Spanish influenza is very contagi ous and the person afflicted should by all means be segregated from people who are not afflicted with the disease, or they will surely catch it. Never allow the room in which a patient is • confined to become damp, as it will always make him worse. Dampness - makes the disease more serious and fatal. Give the patient plenty of fresh air. Now, I do not mean to have your patient exposed to a dangerous draft, but simply raise the windows on one side of the room and lower them on the other . This will give you a well ventilated room Oxygen won’t hurt anyone and is very essential to every patient’s health. If you think you have the influenza, do not become alarmed. Call your doctor at once, as he is the one who will tell you il you are really afflicted with the dis ease. I wish to say with emphasis: PLEASE, LET THE PATENT REME DIES ALONE. They are absolutely no good whatever in combatting this disease. Take a big dose of salts to move the bowels, get in bed, cover yourself well, and for several days It is best to go on a liquid diet When you get a little stronger, try a light diet Drink some beef tea, cocoa, cos ■ fee or hot milk and follow this with a hot bath. Be careful, however, not to take these hot baths too often or you will injure your case. Stay in bed until your doctor tells you to get up. Do not use your own judgment about getting out of bed, or you will likely find yourself in another world. In conclusion, I want to say that we | should observe all the laws of health, keeping our heads cool, feet warm, and bowels open, and use every neces sary -precaution against the spread of this disease. By doing so, we will find ourselves ahead with money, time and labor.
