: - In Field - of : Uy Floyd J. Calvin , NEVVv YORK, Oct. - 6. Natives of the Gold Coast, . West 'Africa, have just completed an 'exhaustive study of their brothers in America through Chief Nana Amoah III, of the Fan - , toe Tribe, Cape Coast Castle, who 'sailed on the S. S. Homeric Saturday for London after having been in the United States ince January. Hi expects to reach lie Gold Coast . within a . - month. : The Chief came to America to study the Negro his development, advantages and extent of his progress in Western Civilization. He expects to take back his findings and . put them into practice in Africa. The Chief has been well impressed by Negroes here.. They have re - markable advantages for education, he finds, but have no economic outlet for their knowledge. - We ""have graduates from technical schools, and men of science, an example of ' which is Frof. Carver of Tuskegee, j but - there is no opportunity for them to fundamentally aid the group. The. solution, as he sees it. is that the , Neprrj must come to know Africa, its, possibilities, - and help develop it so the trade it will furnish will take him out of the " consuming class and start him on the . - road' to economic freedom. Africa today supplies the world with raw materials,, says the Chief. The Negro in America puts his . money in the bank, but he does not , have a charge to invest it in commercial (channels where actual supply and demand insure profits. Instead, the white man invests it for him and in turn "discriminates in employing labor, thereby keeping Vte Negro on the verse ot ecu - ; nomic inc&mpewc - ucy, Some Negroes do well in insurance, and others do well in agriculture hi ' the South but nowhwv are the& real nartici - pu...ts m tilt; vital production of thei' nation. With Africa sufjpiying. . oi the world's cocoa, and other raw products that are constantly in demand, such as mahogany, palm oil, pain, kernels, copra," 5isai, minera'is . tna.ijjanese, bauxite; st. I, diamonds' gold, tin, butiman - aud iron, it is only necessary tor the Negro to become acquainted with the native African, establish confidence and , then begin to do business where there, is business to be ,cone. The Chief explained the Negro's coming into the commercial held with Africans will not mean driving out - tho present white - traders, both European and American, but the creating of a friendly competition between them. The economic status of both the American and African Negro would be raised, Chief Amoah Went In T,nnHnn . from liia Gold Coast home as a mem - I1 nkn... tl . . pulley ai WRITE FOR .V - i - ;, - Mv - .

The modern girl chooses her men friends with about the same precaution a man chooses his viands, which .accounts for the alarming variety of demoralized individuals from youth to adolescence. ! . With few exceptions, money and prestige admits any character into any society, exclusive or general, and places him on an equal plane with any member. It is the close contact and contamination with such unscrupulous individuals that breaks down the old well defined codes of right and wrong by which our fathers and mothers lived and creates in our girls abnormal desires, which results in too much personal freedom, that stamps them much to their liking Modern. It is no trick of nature that girls today live faster, h . ' UV UV their own conceptions of moralitv, and are conspicuously, indifferent' to the pui poses for which they were or'ginaily intended man's compan - lon .It; is though contact with men in this mad race for supremacy that has given them a new. version of life robbed their natures of its delicacy! and love, the sweetest and most fragile thing in the world its beauty. There are exceptions, of course, the good girls the ones men naturally crave and grope for - often in vain. here are they ? Passihly in their accustomed retirement, but certainly content to just be inconspicuous nobodies rather " than swim asamst the tide of the wild hysteria ami emotionalism of this newer dav. lne Modern Girl what do these words imply? To the girl herself, it simply means mental and physical absorption of this personal freedom , t - iat is a drain on the market. Women naturally have a protective natur. and bless their heart?, right or wrong, defend their own sex, but with me the modern rirl is just the best mirror of .w - t life is all about that ever strutted J life's stage. , Nev - r urr a tail, ; - ay Jakf, i.'uv eu its cheaper. ft I 3 E V I i V 1ft jMh ft x : - : - y - - it - v I is IJ' FJ F, III i ' e " to.
