In all of hit addresses Dr. Moton stressed the importance of justice, forbearance, frankness and good will between the races as the U. - is for solving the race problem. The meeting at Raleigh where he ad. dressed three thousand white and colored people at the City Auditorium was upical of meeting held at all the places visited by Dr. Moten and his party. A special writer in the Raleigh Uraa and Obscntr described the meeting is folio : Simple, straightforward and earnest in ht appeal, the Negro leader spoke for more than an hour after he had been introduced by former Secretary of the Navy Joscphus Daniels. He. told the Nejtoes what the while people are thinking ahem them as a race and as in dividual., he told the white people in the audience what the Negroes are thinking about th'm as a race and as individual and upon that basis, appealed to both for frank co - operation and understanding in their relations. Talks to Conference. "Preceding the address, - Dr. Moton ipoki briefly and informally to two score ading citizens of both races at a conference held in the office of Mayor Eld - ridse He laid before them the problem oi race relations as he sees it, and appealed to both evry directly to put their interests together to the end that pre - jirfce, and suspicion may be climinatrd from the relations of the white and Hacks. "Present at the con ference were former Governor and Mrs. T, W. Bicket, Daniels and Mrs. Daniels, 'Dr. Wallace C. Riddick. president of State Ollege, Mrs. B. H.

All participant oi ihe conference sat on the stage at the Auditorium during the address. "Two - thirds of the audience that waited for the speaker was black. The west dress circle was filled with white people, among them many leaders in State and city official circles. Students of to Negro educational institutions occupied secMcns of the dress circle.

Present La Guardia, of the Board of Al - Jermen, who is chairman of a special emmittee of the Armory Board on Site jnd Plans for 15th Infantry Armory, jw recommended to the full Armory Board that the armory be y,iit on the lite now owned by the city and cover - fiJ the entire block bounded by Seventh tnd Imox avenues and 147th and 148th Itreets.

Mayor Eldridge Presided. Mayor Eldridge presided. He welcomed the audience to the Auditorium and the speaker to the city, and pn stnted Jutephus Daniels, who in turn prcjinted Dr. Moton. Mr. Daniels fe - i - cilatied both races upon the fact that during the ' sutits . sad history of race troubles in the South, when there had been almost daily stories in the papers of racial strife, none of them had carried .the Raleigh date line. "High tribute was paid to the Negroes fur their loyalty. The former Navy Secretary related the instance of Ger man endeavors to stir up the Negroes of the South against the whites at the beginning of the war, to which he had replied, when the - aituation was. presented to him, that it was idle to consider it for the Negroes were as loyal Americans as there were in the country. To Dr. Moton he paid a high personal tribute, reminding the audience that he had been selected by the President and sent to France for special service with the Negro troops. Moton a Master Orator. Dr. Moton is a master orator, keen in his appraisal of an audience, happy in his choice of words to fit the thought in his mind to the thinking of the audience. He is tall, thick et, and as he himself says, a "deep mahogany brunette.' His voice is clear, easy to li:ten to, and without being loud, carries to the far corners of the great cavern of the Auditorium. No better Negro jokes have ever been heard than those which he laid the preamble to his speech. "He stirred deep enthusiasm before lie had spoken three sentences when he alluded to the presence of Governor Bick - ett on the stage, and accentuated it when he included Mrs. Bickett and Mrs. Daniels. Direct approach to his subject was avoided, he seeking rather to work around it through lighter allusions to himself, and his subject generally. His audienc was thoroughly good humored, (Continued Fifth Por) Armory Board Reports Scheme of Provide Home for on 7th Avenue. 69th Regiment succeeded to the Tomp kins Market armory. It is recalled that the 71st Infantry armory was originally over a market j on the site now occuped by the Herald building at Sixth avenue, JMh and Joth streets, and Broadway. By putting the 15th Infantry armory on the second floor level the city would save $120,000 yearly. Avoiding Extravagant Waste. The report further states that it is the opinion of the committee that "the ornate and defensive character of the designs of the armories previously erected in the city are etxravagant and wasteful,'' and that the level of the first floor of the armory, if the plans are accepted would be only fifteen feet above the ground at Seventh avenue, thus permitting prompt egress and ingress. The location proposed is in the heart of the district where the rank and file of the regiment ar recruited, and a site could be selected, the committee, declares, which would be more suitable. It will be remembered that Colonel Little's plans will make the 15th Infantry Armory a community center an also provide for public baths, etc. . It is expected that the full Board will act upon the report within a very few days, and within six months the armory will bS'" ' take visible shape. Gov.

(Special Cvrrcspmuknce to This Act) Atlanta, Ga. Evidence of the methods' used by Col. Win. J. Simmons and his Knights of the Invisible Empire, the Ku Klux Klan, was brought out here last week when Governor Hugh M.

The Rev. Homer Thompson of Hartwell wrote Governor Dorsey concerning the Nolan speech and it was this information which called forth the Governor's denunciation. In making this statement, Governor Dorscy withheld his informant's name. 1 his omissicn gave opportunity tor w. S. Cobuin. supreme attorney for the Ku Klux Klan. to include in a defense of the Order, following the Governor's denunciation, the following statement, calculated on its face to have a prejudicial effect. "I notice that in the press reports the name of the Hartwell preacher who has attacked this organization was omitted, the reason for which is obvious. His name is Rev. Rauschen - berg." Misrepresentation! Exposed. The attempt to arouse anti - German sentiment with nullified by publication of another letter from Rev. Thompson, addressed to the Rev. C. P. Wilmer, one of Atlanta's most distinguished min isters and a member ot UK - Atlanta Interracial Committee, which, when made public, disclosed the writer's iden tity. In this letter. Rev.

In his letter to Governor Dorsey, the Rev. Mr. Thompson gave details of the alleged to have said that when a request for placet on the Board of Education was refused, the Negro delegation served an ultimatum upon the City Council which vinuany meant a race riot wnnin a few hours. Nolan is quoted further as declaring that the Governor appealed in turn to 1'olioe Chief Beavers and JUNE 9 - DOUGLAS DAY , AT ROCHESTER, N. Y. Rochester, N. Y.

Plans for its development have been fully consummated, but it' will be given a beginning, and the girls themselves will have a chance to express their opinion as to how it shall be conducted. The following letter from one of the girls will serve to show the idea of the column as expressed by the girls themselves, and its continuance and growth will depend entirely upon the girls. "BROWNIE", from Newark, N. J., writes as follows: "I am going to ask (you a very big favor. . Will you please start a column in your paper for the girls of our race? .Girls from different cities and states can correspond with each other under a different name thereby creating a lot of fun. Once or twice a year we could give a play ' or some kind of an entertainment to help defray the expense pf the column, or we could join the column on - a club plan, and this would induce a number of girls who never read the paper, to buy The Ace. "Please answer my letter through the columns of your paper. If your answer is in the affirmative, I will send you a letter to start the column.
