Even most of the publ'c school
teachers of our country are as ig
norant of the h'story of our great
country as new born babes when
•t comes to know'ng what part the
Amer'can Negro has taken to bu'ld
up, preserve and protect with h's
l'fe our great Amer'can system of
government and 'ts institutions.
Th's lack of knowledge can be ac
counted for by the fact that the
leaders and molders of our nation
al school knowledge and thinking
deliberately ignore and cast as'de
all reference to the great part the
Negro has played 'n the history of
th*s country: thus they bl'ght that
feeling for tolerance, comradeship
and respect for all Amer'cans as
fellow countrymen wh'ch should be
impressed upon the plastic m'nds
of all school ch'ldreh.

Perhaps nothing can more sim

story of the old sow who bathed In j
the spr'ng. A thirsty traveler stood j
on the hank of a small stream and
wa'ted for the muddy water to be
come clear. Tired of waiting and
susp'c'ous as to the cause, the tra
veler made his way up the hill to
the spring. There he found a large
sow tak'ng a bath 'n the spring.
He drove the hog out and soon the
water in the spring was clear and
that In the stream flowed from 't
Th's truth as to the effect and
cause is as plainly manifest in hu

man reactions and human behavior

and can only be ameliorated and
conditions corrected by deal'ng w'th,
caiuses rather than with effects.

WHAT IS SIN?
BY R. A. Adams
(For the Literary Serv'ce Bureau)
S'n is n»t In what one may do,
H's capnb'l'ty, h's need
Of condemnation, and the hue
l’hat may characterize his deed.
Must all remain dependent, st'll,
Upon hs consc'encc and h's w'll.
So, matters not what maybe done,
Let It bo fully understood,
What battles lost, or battles won,
If mot'ves have been true, and good,
One may dismiss all gu'lty fear,
If he can boast hLs eonse'ence clear.
