When ver the question of exclusive rlgtvt to the name waa raised, the courts decided in favor of tha.whtta Ellur. It was tn fact In common use before the Incorporation of any colored Elks' association, and lnmy opinion has Become, dv aoanaonment, common property. The name aa It applied to the colored' Elks waa originally a matter of sufferance or toleration and now perhaps by long use has become a matter of right but ll la not th property exclusively of any particular organization. It has no definite or fixed location, and Its use by one organization, properly and legally chartered by a atate, may not be enjoined at the Instance of an other." The decision, which maintained many of the contentions of the dc fendants, would Indicate that neither the Wilson faction nor the Virginia group can prevent each other from using the n...ie. The plan of the Virginia Orand Lodge and the Insur rectionists affiliated with them Is said to be 'o set up rival grand lodges In varloua atatea, feeling that they can attract the rank and file from the Wilson organization. They are said to feel that with thla situa tion staring him In the facay Wilson will resign at the Detroit meeting.

Dear Editor Pittsburgh Courier: While I know it Is time to call a halt on the disgraceful publicity of the , troubles of the National Baptist Convention X want to say from my observation the whole of these so - called leadera are wrong and failures In the major role that the great Baptist denomination deserves deserves and ought to have. I have read nearly every article on these troubles appearing In your paper and while I am pretty well fed up on the disgrace and Ignorance of these so - called big men I have at least been able to discover the major cause of the whole affair. It has been jealousy and blind am bltlon Instead of the True Vision of world service humbly rendered in the Master s name aa tt ahould have been. I might ask, what are we doing with two National Baptist Conventions? Conventions? Who ever heard of two National National Baptist Conventions U. 8. A. except among Negroea? If we have had any real unselfish leaders with vision enough to see ahead perhaps to the time of the now Golden Jubt lee we surely would not have had any two National Baptist Conven tlons, two competing publishing nouses in the same city with a poor diluted public paying the bills. I wrote to Dr. Morris In 1920 urg lng special effort on his part to heal thla disgraceful breach In the great Baptist Army but only got a kindly acknowledgement of my interest In V. ,t 1 1 1 I HAS BABY GIRL the denomination This Is where the big men ought to 'have shlned, they ought to have given us UNION and a real missionary missionary program that would have carried the gospel to the ends of the earth. Instead we have had a lot of spite work, playing politics and bally - hoolng, until we wind up In the present disgrace. Is this leadership deserving the name? Will It meet the needs of a crlpplod anu long outraged church? Today our ftreat Insurance companies have leaders who have organized their companies for efficiency and service and aro getting some where. Our Colleges and Universities have greatlleadcrs who have prestige and ability to lay at the feet of the Nation Nation and tho race, but alas the church of Christ tha. ought to tower over all and point the way In our day as never before, bchond It lay In disgrace. Lit us pray God a real leader will be found In Israel. (Rev.) S. J. LANG. 1 Mr w$, i k: w ' y v we' At v MRS. J. LYTLE COHN The former Miss Ethel Ruth Murray, who announced the birth of an eight - pound baby girl at the Wiley Wilson Sanitarium, Sanitarium, 200 W. 138th street, New York City, August 3. The. baby has been named Velma. Mr. and Mrs. Cohn live at 1080 Seventh avenue To data, X. think It wUl b gtnrUy adaaltUd Oat Praaldent iloovar feaa beta a keen disappointment to tha Negro. Hla alma of ommlsslon and commission against tha race ara enough to turn tha most loyal Abraham Lincoln Republican against him. Indeed. X think Mr. Hoover la a greater disappointment than tha lata President Harding. Mr. Harding did try. In a halfhearted halfhearted sort of way, to do something for tha Negro, but Mr. Hoover haa tried to do nothing for JUm except emphasis tho stigma of Jim Crow. Mr. Hoover's most outstanding gestures toward our group have been to our detriment, . rit of alL ha aat la tha White Houaa for months without making any move at all that would show be waa aware of our siaUaca. Ha maaa no reiereac io tha great crime, of lynching la hla massage to Congrtaa. Ha offered no apology to tha faithful, who worked hard and ion to elevata him to tha high office ha won. The nniv thin in Mr. Hoover'a favor la hla reappointment of Judge Cobb. That was eaay. Judge Cobb waa already already on tha bench, and It would have been harder for him to remove him than to reappoint him. So I dont ea where tha President deserves especial credit for that Tha credit should really go to President OooUdge, who first made tha appointment And when Mr. Hoover did step out and mention the Negro, what did be do? He appointed tha Moton Com mission to Haiti, which la ana waa nouing dui m j micro micro w appointment, no matter how you look at It X wlU always feel Major Moton ahould have been aent to Haiti with the first Commission. Had that been done, tha Major would not be In th embarrassing position he now finds himself, trying to explain what actually happened when ha and hla associates either entertained or did not entertain while sailors on board th ahlp coming home. Any way you look at it it la an embar - raaalng situation for a President's Commission. In the Judge Parker case Mr. Hoover did not opealy call tha Nexro'a name, but he Is understood to have called It In private, and In not too complimentary tones. The President of course, waa vexed at tha Negro opposition opposition to hla Suprem Court nominee, but his obsti - nance hurt hla cause, waa vexed at the Negro oppo - skstenca on Judge Parker showed how little he cared for Nesrro onlnlon. Tha President's Postmaster General has named Judge William C. Hueston of Gary. Ind, to an Important Important post; and Senator Allen, an avowed administra tion man. haa secured tha appointment or a Itegro attorney attorney from Topeka to another Important post In the Department of JusUce. But these appointments cannot be attributed directly to Mr. Hoover. He Buffered them to be made, but he did not make them. Bo be cannot have tha credit ment month has created considerable roramailoa. At M. Mr. Meaekea hauls down hla bacielora Sag and taaea unto hlmaeir a better (some caU tt "bitter) - half). At any rate a woman from Montgomery. Ala, haa lariated Mr. Mencken and now haa th uncertain Job of taming him. Mr. Mencken Is eertalaly a wlld bull from the pampas if there ever waa one. lr you may judg from his writings. X don't know how these late marriage work out but I don't think so much of them. Love as a kindly senti ment is ail right but X think th original plan was that It mean more than that To b lasting, marital Jove - ought to hare a physical basla. After a certain age . thla basis might fad, but that fart that It haa esisud might compensate. Now when you begin to discus love X realise you ar treading oa dangerous ground. I don't say that ths only true and lasting lovs hla a physical basla. nor , do X aay th physical side of love la th moil tmportaat - Such la not my belief. Hut X do beUev th highest lov - motions may be had for normal potl only through ' physical satisfaction. OtherwU marriage is only a - business arrangement that may b mad by letter or effected by one legal re presenlaUvee.

The Supreme Court of the United States has jut handed down an opinion saying . that tho Negro cannot bo segregated. It la unlawful unlawful in the South to shoot deer out of season or kill turkey buzzard at any time, or any game during the summer months, but the (Unarmed may be killed at any time or foiuon. Tho criminal law in the South Is Ineffectual as against the other peo ple for the murder of Ispgroes south of Washington, I). C. .The southern states have a check and ballast government.

Mr. Hoover haa gained th reputation of being hard - boiled. He la aald to be even ruthless and unscrupulous when h wanta to put something over. I won t go Into hla political maneuvering In the South, but It la known they won't bear too much light Mr. Coolldge waa a patron aaint besides Hoover. "Silent CaT at least did nothing to orrend us. even ir he didn't do much In our favor. But "Cal" could always be depended on to ladle out nice sophistries about "law and order," and th "moral wrong of lynching." And worst of all. X fear It la too lata for Mr. Hoover to retrieve himself, even If he should want to. But 1 don't believe h wanta to. I don't believe he even glvee th Negro a thought given th fin Interpretations that Mr. Robeson's wife ivas alven. Th book la certainly frank.
