Knock and. you are on the shelf, For the world gets sick of the ones who kick, And wishes he’d kicked himself. Boost when the sun is shining— Boost when it starts to rain— If you happen to fall, don’t lie there and bawl, But get up and Boost again. Boost for your own advancement— Boost for the things sublime, For the chap that’s found on the top most Round Is a Booster everytime. SACRIFICE ESSENTIAL TO PROGRESS It matters not how much success we may have, if we are selfish and self-centered, there will come some happening to make us see that we are our brother’s keeper, and we must do our part in bearing our proportion of our weaker brother’s bur den. Today we form the weakest national group in the country, yet it is harder for us to make sacrifices than any other race group. In a leading editorial the editor of the New York News is calling attention to the importance of our facial group combining their strength and energy for the purpose of enabling the race i to get its j ust recognition, and in this connection the News cites j the example of the Italian as being nearest, in numerical strength, j and what they had accomplished by first the leaders pooling their strength, and then getting the rank and file to bolster up, their leadership. How many years have we plead with our group along this line, and exhausted all persuasive powers in an effort to point: out this all-important essential to the benefit and success of the j race, but without avail! Among us the disposition seems to pos- ! sess that so I have and prosper, it matters little what becomes I of others, so me and mine are, seemingly, happy and contented. We find all sorts of faults about the white man leading us j and representing us, but it will never be otherwise until we are willing to lay aside some of our selfishness, and sacrifice for the good of all. We can never hope to marshal the masses for any racial benefit, until those who profess to be leaders shall be convinced that our only hope is in laying aside our selfish desires, that the most good might be obtained. We admit that, here and there, there is some indication of a desire to get a mutual understanding, but there are so many stumbling-blocks and burdens to be removed that the task is almost hopeless. Every individual who can do the least thing to get a following of any number of people, more ignorant than himself, at once becomes a menace and a hindrance, and the I moment a popular movement is commenced, unless they arej considered one of the leaders, he becomes a burden, and must be! removed before progress can be made. The Tribune is making a great move, and we sincerely hope that it may accomplish some good, but it has the fight of its life to teach our people that self-sacrifice is essential to race progress, and that self-denial is the spirit which must come over us before there will be any tendency toward the benefits, which alone must come from such sacrifices. CIVIC ORGANIZATIONS There is a tremendous effort being made to interest the colored people of this community in civic organizations, which have for their object the betterment of the condition of the race group. No sensible person will deny that it is through such organizations must the work be done which will lift this race of mine, from the depths to the heights of civilization. No matter under what name the organization is known, if it has the welfare j of the race at heart, every upstanding man and woman should be i a part of the organization, for only in such union can the hope be obtained. One of the chief reasons the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan give for their organization, is the purpose of combatting the efforts of the National Association For The Advancement Os Colored People. Every thoughtful person in the country, had been imbued with the idea, that it was an implied understanding, that all law-abiding people in this country agreed, that the ad vancement of the colored people in the United States would be the best thing which could be accomplished. Schools have been instituted all over the land, to teach the colored people hpw to become useful, intelligent, God-fearing, law-abiding citizens of this Great Republic; and. to learn that any sort of organization should be formed to thwart such laudable progress, is perfectly astounding. If the colored people are not to be encouraged in their advancement, it is a crime of the basest kind to enlighten and train them in schools. The more intelligent a person becomes, the greater his ambition to advance, and if , there are individuals or organizations opposed to such advance ment, it is quiet natural that the sane and sensible colored people ! should organize to assist in every honest and legitimate way to teach those opposing, as well as those favoring their advance ment, the advantages and disadvantages for and against such a move. The National Association For The Advancement Os Colored People has no secrets. Every thing they attempt to do is free and open to inspection. They have no special people to fight, except those who do wrong and practice wrong doings, and then their methods of procedure are by intelligent instruction and per suasion, and not by force. It has done wonderful good toward pointing the right course and exposing the wrong, and every person, regardless to color or creed, who means right, should either join the organization or support it in its most commendable efforts to bring about, not only the advancement of colored people, but a most harmonious and friendly feeling between all , the people of this great and powerful country of ours. NEGRO LITERATURE FOR NEGRO PUPILS ! | j • Every teacher in a colored school is a missionary. More than the mere instilling of so much knowledge in the heads of the pupils must he or she teach many other things, character through . pride of race being one of the greatest. For the youth who is proud of his race will endeavor to live up to its traditions, and will hesitate to do mean things lest they sully the estcutcheon. It is well for Negro children to know that the delightful fables of AEsop are the satires of a black slave and that the author of the incomparable “Three Musketeers,” which rejoices : the swashbuckling instincts of the adolescent, was of Negro descent. There are exquisite little nature lyrics, particularly snow scenes, by Pushkni (obtainable in translation) ; and it would make the young chests swell with pride to know that these are the work of one of the greatest Russian poets—an acknowledged i Negro. j And the winged words of Booker T. Washington and Fred- 1 rick Douglass! The biographies of those who have accomplished j great things in the face of heavy odds! The girl, Phyllis, and - the lad, Paul! How much finer for the Negro boy and girl to know of these lives, and of the work they did; to read the burn- , ing, living words that are the work of their own blood and kin; i to feel that the lowly ones of tfie cabins in the country, or the « tenements and alleys in the city, may yet give to the world some : | gift, albeit small, that will inspire and ennoble countless dark- ' faced children struggling up towards the light. Assuredly we | our boys and girls, not only their own history and • literature, but works by their own authors. TWO MILLION NEGRO WOMEN AT WORK ] Struggling against lack of training and against efficiency, i restricted in oppotunities to get and hold jobs, more than two j j million Negro women and girls are today laboring in domestic ' service, in agriculture, and in manufacturing pursuits with the hope of an economic independence that will some day enable them I to take their places in the ranks with other working women. During the past twelve months some decided changes as- ; j feeling Negro women have taken place in domestic and personal i service. For instance, in Detroit, Mchigan, today, from eighty to ninety per cent of the calls for domestic workers are for white j girls. The average wage in that city for general houseworkers is from $8 to sl2 a week as against sls to S2O a year ago. Women working by the day receive from $ .60 to- $ .70 an hour as against $ .60 to $ .70 one year ago. The calls for office, elevator and stock girls are no longer for Negio gills. Theie are still some thousands of Negro women in the cigar and tobacco factories of the country. They are poorly paid, of course, their wages ranging from $6 to $lO for a sixty-hour week. In many sections almost the only recreational or social con tacts enjoyed by such women come through the monthly church . meeting, the occasional burial of a friend, or the annual trip to J town at cotton-seed time. Better prepared ministers, more mis- ■ sionary school teachers and welfare workers, and many district : nurses would make the life of the average agricultural woman • worker more endurable.—Elizabth Ross Haynes in the Southern < Workman. ; 4 "" ' ' " ■- ◄ NOW IS THE TIME 3 4 "" " 4 Join the Tribune army of regular subscribers and have your ' paper home delivered.
