Defense Crack Under Strain of a Heavy Batting Attack.
Lose Two Out of Three.
Vengeance is mine I will repay thee was an ultimatum of each Giant
taking a part In the recent disastrous Panther series at Fort Worth a few
moons ago when the Cats administered unto the Sloan band an old time
country flogging by winning a twin bill from the boys of "Big D".
The series here consisted of three games Sunday. Monday and Tues-
day; the first tilt was a peppery affair with the visitors leading in the
early stage of the game. -
Liggins for the Panthers was pitching shut out base ball until the
fourth round when his support cracked.
And under the strain of a terrlfio Giant Bombardment In the seventh
spasm the stonewall defense of the Panther's Inner works crumbled llkb
the mighty Forts of Antwerp before a belching German seige gun.
The Giants heavy artillery brought in the wrecking crew and launched
a flanking movement as a finishing touch to the opposition and thus se-
curing the big end of an 8 to 5 count.
Monday's game with Alexander pitching Fort Worth won her first
and last start of the series.
Tuesday Charlie Harris made his debut in fast company and to say
the least it was some what auspicious as such he celebrated the event by
turning In a victory for the home squad.
Now if you will pardon us we will tell you Jnst how it all happened.

race treats the other with respect
and the leaders on both sides try
to be fair and work together for the
advancement of all and the highest
development of the State.
For many years It has been very
difficult for Negroes to buy farms
and homes in the most desirable
sections of the State because of
the high prices demanded especially
has this been true of the best farm-
ing sections. When the 1920 Cen
sus report appeared showing that
there were only 604 Negro farm
owners in the State a decrease of
204 during the past ten years sev-
eral of the leaders became alarmed
and began to look about for good
farm land which could be purchased
by Negroes on the easy payment
plan. A group of white financiers
had purchased 10000 acres of virgin
land in the blue grass section of
Pocahonta County W.- Va. and held
an option on 17000 acres more in
the same section. - This land is lo-
cated in the best farming and cat-
tle raising section of the State and
it was the purpose of the purchasers
to cut it into farms of from 50 to
100 acres and sell It to wiite natives
and foreigners. The writer and two
representative Negroes approached
the representatives of the owners
of this acreage with the proposition
of cutting the land into ten acre
farms and cup up lots in a pro-
posed town site and Ive Negroes
the opportunity of buying upon the
easy payment plan. It was with
great effort after many conferences.
that the owners were convinced that
Negroes would purchase farm land
but finally Messrs Jas. S. Kahle
Bluefield. and J. JS. Woodson Prin
ceton represting the owners agreed
to give Negroes a cnance to get mis
valuable land upon the easy payment

10.000 acres were laid off In ten

Association offered Negroes this val

The promise that Negroes would
buy farm land is being kept. To
date more than 200 West Virginians
have purchased from ten acres to
100 acres and nearly 100 are clean-
ing up and cultivating their tracts.
This is the first opportunity Ne
groes in large numbers have had
In West Virginia to purchase de-
sirable farm land in either small or
large quantities upon the easy pay
ment plan-and when all of -this
acreage is sold they hay never have
such an opportunity again. This land

West Virginia . has never passed
any legislation providing for separ-

and Negroes vote in all elections
without lot or hindrance. They hold
27 appointive positions under the
State Government drawing salaries
aggregating more than $45000.00
per year; they hold 14 elective po-
sitions in the counties and magis-
terial districts Including two mem-
gers of the House of Delegates; 14
salaried and per diem appointive of-
fices In the counties; 8 elective of-
fices in cities and towns; 22 ap-
pointive offices in cities and towns.

Drastic laws been enacted against
lynching and against the showing of
pictures or plays in the theatres of

passage of these splendid laws.

the will of the people of this great
