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

These words were in our mind as

down the aisle of the west side of the ,
first floor of the War Depart ment :

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
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.

been guilty of making a slight mis
j takd in printing the advertisement for

we said you would find the shop at

this by supplying the 3, and made
i another mistake* by writing MRS

as, we should have written MR

I lar tonsorlal parlor said that he h .d
lone awful time trying to convince his

that shop. Mrs. Brady told her hus
band that she had become to regard
the Tribune as a reliable newspaper
and when she read an article in it
she naturally took it for granted that
the statements contained therein were

I is merely keeping pace with the times
i So many colored people are coming
J into Phoenix recently, that there are

Ito accomodate them. All newcomers

many inquiries about rooms, till he
decided to take care of this situation
himself. He accordingly purchased
this modern establishment, and can
now direct all tourists or transients

Mrs. Jerry Hinton, who left Phoe

her son Archie Lewis at Ray, Ariz.
returned to Phoenix Monday evening
and brought Archie with her. Archis

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

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.
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.

ria fouled out to Lansing; and two

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
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 ’

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.

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

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
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:
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.
