about The  Voice since its first issue  A few of  their comments are published below   See editorial for reply  They are     The news that Judge Fred Starck    of the Police Court  had been indict   ed for anything came as a shock to  Colored citizens Thursday evening   Judge Starck is regarded as a friend  of the Colored people  He is a  member of the Paul Lawrence Dun   bar Club  a Colored organization   and is generally considered a fair  and unprejudiced Judge  The only  weakness Judge Starck apparently  has is his disposition to flv off when  ColorUi agd W iite neople are intri   mixeiL An example is found in a  case Monday in which a white couple  was arrested at   Negro home  The  Judge declared then  it is said  that  he would like to send the fire de   partment ou tto this home and raze  it to the ground  Many of his Col   ored friends  adherents and support   ers at the polls were shocked to hear  that the Judge had waxed so bitter   merely because a white woman and  man had gone to a Negro s home to  get a  dram   or a  shot  or what   ever it is called  But nevertheless  they hate to see him indicted even     though he gets dismissed  as he surely  will  no doubt  Then again a lot of  Colored people  got sore  over the  statement made in the white papers  Wednesday that Judge Starck said   in this very case he is indicted on   that  You can get a drink of liquor  anywhere on Walnut street   It  was pointed out that many of the  best Colored people in the city live  on Walnut street people vM do  not even drink liquor  far lest Lake  and sell it  But it seems to the  consensus of Colored people s pofti   ions that Judge Starck is not being  given the proper consideration in this  indictment and arraignment  But  the Judge can take care of himself

 I M ANXIOUS ToL  See what kind _  of A PLACE WEVt   PICKED OUT Rdr r  OUR VACATION 1    New York  January 28  The re   gultsof an investigation of the lynch   ing at Salisbury  Md   on Dec  4   31   were made public today by the Fed   eral Council of Churches of Christ  in America  The inquiry was made  hy Prof  Broadus Mitchell of the De   partment of Political Economy  John  Hopkins University  acting in behalf  of the Federal Council s Commission  on Race Relations    The investigation had to do with  the hanging and burning of Matthew  Williams  a metally defective Negro  who had shot and killed his employer  and who  after trying to kill hint   self  jyas taken from the Salisbury  Hospital  hanged and burned  Prof   Mirtehell s study  according to the  report issued today  attempted to  discover the conditions in the com   munity which made a lynching pos   sible and the effects of  he lynching  upon the attitudes of the citizens    As a contributory factor  Prof   Mitchell cites the geographical iso   lation of the community resulting in  rather backward conditions  The  chief explanation given by the resi   dents of the community for the  lynching was that two serious crimes  in which Negroes were accused  had  occurred in the locality shortly be   fore and had aroused public feeling    Prof  Mitchell made a frank crit   icism of the attitude of the commu   nity as a whole  saying that  two  weeks after the lynching the place  was rife with excuses for the hang   ing  if not  indeed  full of justifica   tions of it   This attitude of self  defense was stimulated by the crit   icism of Salisbury which came from  other parts of the State  The sec   tional feeling was increased when a  local newspaper stated that the  Eastern Shore  on which Salisbury is  located  feels  that the greater part  of the responsibility for the lynching  results from the interference of Bal   timore City in the affairs of the  Shore The sectional feeling   ran so high that several Salisbury  merchants even cancelled orders with  Baltimore firms    Prof  Mitchell found only two cit   izens who had made any effort to  prevent the lynching and comments  that  the most sorrowful reflection  is no that some ignorant countryman  and townsmen gave way to violence   but that no one from among the in   telligent and fair minded citizeens  exerted  himself with spirit and de   termination to stop the lynching     The conclusions of Prof  Mitchell s  study are summarized as follows     In a sense  the Chesapeake Bay  contributed to the lynching in Sal   isbury  That is  the Eastern Shore  is isolated geographically  and has  become backward in its mental and  spiritual development  It is proba   bly true  as one of the writers prom   inent in the controversy over the  lynching has said  that the Eastern  Shore has suffered from the removal  of many of its ablest young men   Allowing this to be true  it still must  be said that the most sorrowful re   flection is not that some ignorant  countrymen and towsmen gave way  to violence  but that no one from  among the intelligent and fair mind   ed citizens exerted himself with  spirit add determination to stop the  lynching  Credit should be given to  the two citizens  mentioned in the  full report  who opposed the mob   one by protesting before the hanging  occurred  the other by trying to pre   vent the barbarism of the burning     If it be said that i toccurred too  quickly  it is to be answered that  there was probably knowledge in the  town an hour or more beforehand  that trouble was brewing  And if  private citizens are to be excused   the officers of the law have no ex   cuse  It may be fairly concluded  that the chief of police  his three  patrolmen who were on duty and the  sheriff and his deputies offered no  resistance to the lynching  The im   pression was received by the inquir   er that the public spirit of Salisbury    is far below what is desirable  Those    whom one would expect to be leaderg    in a crisis decided to fail with the i  ignorant  the prejudiced  the fright     ened  the sullenly boastful     Salisbury has given proof of its    lack of civic morality not only in  the lynching and burning  but even    Men   Class of W  Chestnut  St   Grace S  S  Led Last  Sunday    It s The Soul     That Counts    The Y  M  C  A  26  16th St  A M   E  Zion 59  B  T  Washington

business  other  speakers were James A  Jackson of  the Department of Commerce  Wash   ington  D  C   and A  L  Holsey   president of the National C  M  A    anil secretary of the    Stores  Inc   i

 expressed the gratification of    the dub at having so distiaguished a  visitor as Dr  Moton present    Dr  Moton received rounds of ap   plause as he made point after point  in his speech  He said the Negro  has made great progress in education  and music and art  but business is  his weakest point of development   But he said he was glad to observe  in the last few years an awakening  along business line3  He said the  work of the Business League in stim   ulating a cooperative spirit among  business men hud begun to bear fruit  and a splendid example of the new  awakening was the Harlem Business  Men s Club  The fact that the club  has 165 members joined together for  the purpose of stimulating business   and the fact that they have remained  together for a year  is significant  he  said  There is no limit to what can  be accomplished with even such a  mildest number of people working  unitedly behind any business pro   gram  he declared    Mr  Jackson said in the course of  his speech  which was filled with  suggestions for improving business  policies and practices   that Negroes  are seeking a new light is evident  from the fac that 28 national Negro  organizations  two interstate bodies   sixteen state groups and 78 local  commercial organizations  including  this one  are listed along with the  other large numbers published in the  volume of business by the Depart   ment of Commerce     Mr  Holsey  before installing the  new officers of the club  said that ac   cording to American ratioa of food  consumption  200 000 Negroes in  Harlem spend  26 000 000 per year

WILLIAM WARLEY  A  E  MORRIS_    By WM  H  FERRIS   The Intelligentsia of Louisville  heard Prof  Earl Brown of the  Municipal College deliver a brilliant  but rather pessimistic address on   The

C   Lattimnre ask searching questions   They heard Mrs  J  Max Bond say  amid great applause  We thought  we could fly before our wings were  grown  That is why our banks and  insurance companies failed and  taught us a needed lesson     But those who remained behind  and listened to the discussion be   tween Prof  Earl Brown and Dean  Rufus S  Clement and heard the  latter say that the present study of  social conditions would bear fruit  twenty years later  were more than  repaid for coming out to the meet   ing  Prof  George F  Robinson act   ed as a Master of Ceremonies  He  proved a Master of Introduction and  manifested a desire to give as many  as possible an opportunity to ask  questions and discuss the well pre   pared address  Mr  Andrews sang  in a touching manner  When the  Golden Sun Sinks in the West     The Address    Prof  Earl Brown gave a masterly  survey of the Negro s economic de   velopment since his emancipation  from bondage  He said  The prob   lem of the Southern Negro was first  rural and is now partly urban  Out  of 12 000 000 Negroes in America   only 4 000 000 live in the cities     Then Prof  Brown described in  graphic manner the southern Negro  imigrating north in large numbers   writing roseate letters back home   until more southern Negroes blocked  north than could be economically as   similated  And he closed his dark  picture by saying that the Negro in  the north unskilled and untutored  found himself competing with Jews   Italians and other peoples of south   ern Europe  Prof  Brown ably an   swered the many questions hurled  at him  Prof  Robinson could well  say  You can see that I did not mis   represents the speaker and that he is  an expert in his line     Comment    Ever since Dr  Thomas Jesse Jones  published his survey of Negro col   leges and universities around 1918   weighed them in the balance and  found most of them wanting  with   out taking into consideration that  the white educators for twenty three  years had discouraged the higher ed   ucation of the Negro and white  philanthropists favored the Indus   trial Schools  the tendency on the  part of white and Colored sociolo   gists has been to gi tin judgment  on the Colored brothers    Prof  Earl Brown is not as pessi   mistic as Dr  Carter G  Woodson  and not as cynical as Mr  George S    But he has been some     Associate

been politically chained to a party from which he should break away  It  is up to those who are free  to  Loose him   from that political slavery  that has had him in bondage since he was given the right to vote    The heading of the Colored Democratic Voice shows a young man chained  to a post  He has succeeded in freeing one hand and with this is casting  a ballot for the party of his choice  He is seen struggling to break the  chain that binds the other arm  It is up to us  since he has not been able  to free himself  to  Loose Him  and bring him into his own  Loose him  from that party that has had him in political slavery  Loose him from  that party  G O P   Good on promises and never keeps them  Never  keeps them unless it is a promise to do something against the Negro   Loose him from that party that fights for his vote and then segregates him  after they get it  Loose him from that party that forces him to pay taxes  and then does not permit him to enjoy the fruits of those taxes  Loose  him from the party that has 75 000 clerks in the United States services  and less than 300 of them Negroes    No wonder w e cry out with loud voice   Loose him from that party  Good on Prrnitei when we recall that at one time there were only 25 000  federal mployes  2 000 of them were Negroes  and today with 75 000 em   ployes  less than 300 of them Negroes  Loose him from the party he has  kept in power for years and yet that party shows him no regard after the  election is over  Loose him from that party that has shown a disposition  to kick him out of every responsible position which he has occupied  Loose  him and let him go a free man  Free t oact and vote as other men do   without being molested  It is the purpose of The Colored Democratic  Voice to do its part

in lauding Ward s   Dynamic Sociology   sociologists  tended to become statistical rather  than psycholological    Four years ago  the Department  of Commerce of which President  Herbert Hoover was then Secretary  and in which Dr  Klein and former  Prof  Sargent of Harvard were  prominent figures published a 300  page economic survey of the entire  world  Yet none of the brilliant ex   perts who marshalled the facts  fig   ures and statistics could forsee that  a world depression was on the wing   That is a resplendent example of  statistics minus psychology    Similarly those who say that the  Negro is not making good economic   ally in the north seem to fail to  recognize that it is difficult for a  colored artisan to find employment  in the north and extremely difficult  for an ambitious Colored boy to get  in a first class shop and learn to  become a skilled mechanic  machin   ist or textile worker    The New York     Committee of Fifteen   Praises Dr  J  M  Williams    of Colored people and poor white people  One is the bill to reduce the  number of Magistrate from eight to three and to put them on salaries   That is a good thing for all poor people  especially in the case of suits  for debt  Before a Magistrate the defendant is nearly always wrong   The Magistrate lives on fees  So he is inclined to favor the plaintiff who  brings the case to him  Magistrate courts heretofore have been for the  most part collecting agencies and rarely can th edefendant give a sutis  The  loan shark  bill to regulate loan companies and the interest they  charge also is a good thing for all poor people  Men and women hard  pressed and desperate for money are easy prey to the enticing advrtise   ments these companies send out  But once in their clutches the poor

follows tradition and belies his  degree and the record itself    These errors are inexcusable and  the ministers are deserving of the  criticism and the ridicule which their  mistakes evoke     conveyances  in public  and almost everywhere are to be  found persons whose body odor is  sickening and disgusting  Much of  the trouble is due to failure to bathe  regularly and failure to make prop   er change of garments    There are some unfortunate per   sons who have this odor in spite of  regular and persisten tbathing  but  there are so many deodorants now   that there is no excuse for this  offense against society and common  decency    There is an amusing story of an  Irishman who said   And faith  I do  take a bath every five years  whether  I need it or not   So it seems that  there are those who make bathing a  five year event  The offense would  not be so serious even if these people  were confined to their own homes   but it is an injustice for them to go  out among their fellows and thus  offend them     he says    when I contend that I should have  the same privilege with his mail he  answers hotly   No  indeed  I m a  man and that s different   Often it  has been said in ridicule a woman s  reason is  just because  but that  seems more reasonable than the  threadworn  I m a man and that s  different     In cases of this kind one is at a  loss to determine

This  movement caused great alarm among  the planters because of the economic  ruin which it would bring to the  South  if continued  Therefore  meetings of whites and blacks were  held in an effort to keep the freed   men in the South  Because the  whites were afraid to rely upon  moral persuasion they used force by   trying to keep the Negroes from  leaving by refusing them transpor   tation and by imprisoning them  falsely  But in spite of these diffi   culties they continued to move to the  West    Quotation  From Negro Author    One would suppose that where  equal rights luws existed

during the past two  years  It has paid up two  1 000  notes in 1030 and 1931 and is now  in the midst of a revival which will  run well into February  Elder  Schultz who had a successful pasto   rate in Knnsas City  Mo   before  coming to Louisville in 1029  is do   ing most of the preaching in his  commodious  well equipped church   He draws large crowds on Sunday  and the depression is keeping up the  faith and the morale of his enthusi   astic and loyal members     Pittsburg  Pa   According to a   report from one of the members of  the East West hookup  this writer  has spoken truthfully all along about  what would be done and how  Jan   21 was a  Posey Day  in Cleveland   He called the Moguls together  gave  them the low down as he say it and  put his measures through with ap   parent ease  The little fellow slip   ped one over on  em when he had  himself appointed chairman of the  commission  This position makes  him the actual boss of the League   and free t  determine the right or  wrong of any issue which might de   velop  Sometimes a man can con   trol a group of men  put through his  ideas in a formulative way and re   ceive the plaudits of the world  Then  again he can go through the same  performance and be criticised for  taking advantage of ignorant and  weak people    Among the many restrictions  which went through the meeting un   der the steam roller are two which  are unreasonable and unfair  Wheth   er they are directed at one team or  a group of teams does not make it  bette ror worse  If carried out the  result will be the same  The spirit  of the game is being sacrificed in ot   her to  hog  all the best attractions  for the east west hookup    We are told that the League outfit  will not play non members who se   cure league team players by offering  higher salaries  The second restrict   ion places a 20  mile limi ton games  with non league members in the same  city  For instance  Newark and  Washington have games scheduled  with each other in June  Each team  also has games scheduled with Lengce  teams in July  If fans allow the  present restrictions to be carried out  Newark and Washington cannot play  on their own grounds  but must be  at least 20 miles away from home in  order to be qualified for their July  games with League teams    The fallacy of these restrictions is  more apparent with white indepen   1  dent teams  from which it seems all  colored teams must depend for a cer   tain percentage of their revenue   Here is Pittsburgh  such teams as  Bellevue  Ambridge  Homewood  Al   toona  or any of the Middle Atlantic  Association teams could not play the  Pittsburgh Crawfords either here or  abroad unless the game was staged  20 miles from Pittsburgh  This  in  view of the fact that all teams have  their own parks  or adequate con   cssions    We are passing this on as we re   ceived it from a member of the  League  Whether it works out re   mains to be seen  If the arrange   ment suits the fans they will contin   ue to attend League games and  League games only  If these same    Unoin  It has fourteen departments  and is expected this year to have the  usual Boy Cadet Movement     Grand Theatre

of the Pittsburg  Crawfords  His contract goes into  effect before February I  1932  and  carries  it is said  the biggest oppor   tunity ever offered a manager of Ne   gro ball players    In Winning the managerial berth   Charleston eliminated three other  capable men  Herbert Pierce  for   merly a catcher for the Homestead  Ctiays and considered the  brains   of the team in hisplaying days  Dizzy  Dismukes  acknowledged as the pre   mier strategist in Negro baseball   and Bobbli Williams  the man who  whipped the disorderly Crawfords  into shape last year and made them  a thrent to the best that Negro base  ball had to offer    The selection was not made hur   riedly  Almost two months ago it  became known that the owner   us  Greenlee had made n decision was  not a result  f any shortcomings of  last year s performances  but more  or less from repeated suggestions  from the fans  Charleston  it seems  is the best showman  A sure shot  fielder  dangerous hitter and plan   ner of winning plays  He is con   ceded to be the best drawing card in  baseball  This  however  does not  detract from the other three candi   dates  who might direct just as ef   fectively and consistently  But  Charle ton has the color  Has that  rare style of performing which  makes the old retired business man  wnnt to kick over the benches pull  some pretty girl s hair  or make the  meek little school marm yell until  she s hoarse  And it seems that this  style was the winning style     THE RIGHT MAN    ITS YOllR THEATRE    Alabama Endorses Professor  E  A  Selby for Secretary
