SIGHT-SEEING IN SOUTH
By William Picket!*
(For the A. N. P., Dec. 7)
We wish to suggest some things
which we hope the “official guides”
in South America will not fail to
point out to the North Americans
who are to visit them in the entour
age of Mr. Herbert Hoover.
They need not point out any of
their skyscrapers, for they have none
tihat can vie with the Woolworth
building, nor any of their banks, for
they cannot compete with Wall
street, nor any of their criminals, for
they have none to equal those of Chi
cago. Let them point out :
That in South America men of any
race and color can hold any office
they are able to hold.
That the absence of race discri
minations in civil privileges have
done no harm to anybody.
That children in public schools,
without color lines, do not grow up
into enmity but to friendship.
That lynching, which is one of the
indispensable industries of Mississip
pi, is found to be absolutely needless
in Brazil, which has cities with larger
Negro populations than any city of
That race prejudice is not “natural
and instinctive,” but an abnormality
and a misfit in civilzation.
That Nordics, while they may be
uesful, are not at all necessary for
the continued operation of the solar
You cannot astonish us materially,
Miss South America, but show our
skepticism some of the doubted won
ders of your soul.
NOTED BROOKLYN DIVINE
SPEAKS BEFORE NORTH
Greensboro, N. C., Dec. 7.— (A. N.
P.)—Dr. II. H. Proctor, pastor of
the Nazarene Congregational church
of Brooklyn, New York, spoke to the
student body of A. and T. college
last night on the needs of prepara
tion in life. The speaker is a grad
uate of Fisk university and the school
of theology of Yale.
The speaker emphasized the need
for preparation because the cross
represented by the progress of the
world, is the cross beam of the mas
sive structure which grew out of the
preparation of the engineer who de
signed it. The increasing progress oi
the world today increases the prob
lems, and this means a greater need

SENATOR BORAH POSSIBLE
SUPREME COURT CHOICE
Chicago, 111., Dec. 7.— (A. N. P.)
—Colored opponents of Governor A1
Smith in the recent presidential cam
paign who were against the New
York democratic executive because
of the possibility, in the event of his
election, that he might appoint dem
ocratic and prejudiced judges to the
United States Supreme Court, are
given something to think about by
dispatches from Washington which
indicate that Senator William E.
Borah, republican from Idaho, is be
ing considered unofficially as a pos
sible appointee to the chief justice
ship of that court.
It is pointed out by those who dis
cuss this question that Hoover, as
president, will find himself indebted
to the Idaho orator. During the cam
paign, Borah was the only one of the
so-called republican irreconcilables,
who took a positive stand and ren
dered yeoman service for the repub
lican candidate. It was Borah who
set out upon the trail of A1 Smith
when there seemed to be no one else
to do the job and gave the democrat
ic candidate as good as he received,
For this service he must be re
warded, the political speculators ar
gue. They see no proper place for
him except in the cabinet or on the
supreme court bench. If he went
into the cabinet, it would be as sec
retary of state, but there are many
persons who don't believe that Borah,
in his superior attitude, would ac
cept that position. As chairman of
the foreign relations committee of
the senate, he has had the power to

Borah is regarded as one of ths
greatest constitutional lawyers in
America, but, cddly enough, he has
been one of the most powerful en
emies of a political square deal foi
the Negro. He has expressed the be
lief publicly that the Negro was en
franchised too soon, and has giver
aid and comfort to southerners who
have sought to justify the south’s vio
lation of the Negro’s citizenship
rights. On the other hand:
He is one of the great protagonists
of the prohibition amendment to the
constitution and has fought against
its nullification in any form.
Thus the possibility of his appoint
ment to the supreme court is fraught
with extreme danger to the Negro’s

One of the causes for the high
disparity of figures between white
girls and colored girls was given as
the ability of white girls who are ac
costed by police to produce an al
ibi; they show that they have a job.
Or else, instead of walking the
streets, these white girls work on
'what is known as “call,” thereby
keeping out of the eyes of the police.
In addition to these causes, it was
also brought out that police are more
active in breaking in residences of
colored neighborhoods than they are
Two police sergeants who have
worked in the colored district claimed
that the high percentage of immor
ality among colored girls is in part
due to the lack of gainful employ
ment and that the girls are encour
aged to barter themselves away by
enterprising landladies and men who
live off their earnings.
Capt. George P. O’Connor of the
police department pointed out that
the present condition is an after-ef
fect of the immigration of Negroes
into Chicago, for service in various
industries. When the business of
these industries slackens, hunders of
people are thrown, out of work and
resort to a loose manner of living in
order to sustain themselves.
