Dr. Moton Makes Ills -First
PcKIc Visit to Cltea
(By the Associated Negro Press.)
Chicago 111. April 24. Dr. Robert
R. Moton Principal of Tuskegee In-
stitute Alabama . successor of the
late Dr. Booker T. Washington made
his first public visit to Chicago cov-
ering a period of several days. Dur-
ing his stay here Dr. Moton confined
bis public addresses to the subject
of the "Negro in the World War"
and put at rest the criticisms In some
localities relative to his advice to
the soldiers of the race during- his
trip to France.
Dr. Moton appeared no less than
five times in public before the "last
word" in Chicago gatherings. His
first appearance was before the Tus-
kegee club Sunday afternoon In
Casey's Hall where after his ad-
dress he was presented with a Liber-
ty Bond by the alumnao association
as an evidence of their faith in his
work and to be used in behalf of
some worthy Tuskegeen student Sun-
day night Dr. Moton spoke before
3000 people in themammotfi Orches-
tra Hall the vast majority of the audi-
ence being white. Here he delivered
a frank address relative to the Ne-
gro in the War in which he told
how the soldiers never faltered in
the face of great odd. "Our soldiers
had to fight both the enemy without
and prejudice within" he declared.
"And now we have our greatest bat-
tle at home in getting justice which
should not be denied to any . Amer-
ican. We ask no special favors but
we do insist that we be given an
equal opportunity in the battle of
life." . :
At South Park Avenue ' Methodist
Episcopal church Dr. ' Moton ad-
dressed an audience of 1500 the me-
jority our own people. Here he told
very frankly of some of the wild
rumors that were afloat concerning
the race soldiers which induced
President Wilson and Secretary Bak-
er' to request hlra to Investigate
which he did running down every
one and making recommendations
for' betterment that .were immediate-
"There has been some criticism
concerning iny using the term . 'mod-
est' in some of my talks to our sol-
diers but .1 am .euro there could
be no misunderstanding or criticism
If the term were . understood in its
' "I want to declare to you that I
spoke frankly to those who were In
a position to do us the most good
and I did not hesitate to call at-
tention to any injustices that were
heaped upon us. General Pershing
treated me with the utmost courtesy
as did the otber commanding gener-
als. Inasmuch as much of my mis-
sion was in the natum of confidential
there are things that I am not even
yet at liberty to say but I am sure
they will come out in time.
"In the work of reconstruction be-
fore us we must all work together.
The best white people of the South
are deeply concerned about the wel-
fare of our race and in a short time
you will hear much concerning the
conference of leading white men
who met in Atlanta Ga. who pldged
themselves as "Crusaders" to bring
to pass the fruits of the true spirit
of democracy and Justice."
Dr. Moton also addressed the Chi-
cago Advertising club and the City
club both white being accompanied
by Dr. George .C. Hall and Editor
Rober: S. Abott of The Chicago De-
fender. - - -

San Francisco Calif. April 24.
There was produced here for the
first tif.-ie last week at one of the
local theatres a new one act play
called "Bondage."- Jt deals in a se
rious ay with certain problems con-1

.In the San Francisco Call-Post
one of the great dailies of this sec-
tion John D. Barry the Democratic
Editor devotes a Thoie section to
the discussion of.. the p'ay after re-
viewing its story.
To quote Iiis exact words he says:
"It makes vs reflect on the awful
cruelty in the attitude of the whites
toward Coloed people. No wonder
H. O. Wells said in the book that
he wrote on his return to England
from this country "The Future in
America" published a dozen years
ago that ho couldn't understand why
the Negroes didn't flea up and mur-
der us in our beds."
Witii reference to the English . used
in the dialog of the play the critic
says: "All of the characte-.a even
the grandfather speak pretty clear
English after the habit of bo mans
Negroes. Some of the best . English
I ever heard has been spoken by
Colored people. They dhow that the
M i has a fine ear for the nice-
ties of speech."

Cleveland Ohio April 24. The peo-
ple of the entire nation are watching
with the greatest interest the fight
of the people In Ohio to have the
Beatty Bill which grants equal rights
to all placed on the Statute bxka
of the state. The bill was Introduced
by Efipreeentative Lee Boatty of
Ciuolnuaii'tti6 only -membt r of -the
race in the legislature. While Ohio
has a "Civil Rights" bill it is de-
clared that It is not iron-clad enough
and hence the new bill seeks to
overcome the deficiencies for in many
sections . of the state particularly
Cincinnati Dayton Springfield To-
ledo Zanesville and Hamilton of the
larger cities there is the most wan-
ton abuse of civil .rights.
The legislature of Ohio is Republi-
can and the governor James M. Cox
a democrat In a leading editorial
in The Cleveland Advocate the lead-
ing Race newspaper of the state
and which has always supported U:
Republican party is the declaration
that unless the Republican legisla-
ture passes the bill the Colored peo-
ple of the state have come to the
parting of the ways.
Never in the history of tae state
has there been a more united effort
to out over a bill. "Whatever Is
done" said one leader "Ohio Is go-
ing on record. The state Las always
been regarded as one of Justice aud
fair play but It seenu that these
latter day white Republicans are
but little better than the former
day Southern Democrats. Some of
then are such hypocrites that- they
stink to high heaven."

might have been If let it be said
that he is still an optomint a man
of forceful personality whose con-
victions sink deeply in the mind of
his listener. He was In Chicago this

interest and deep concern about the
