Gilby Robinson, founder and head of the Lincoln Secretarial School, is planning the opening of a large department store, manned entirely by colored people, in Harlem in the near future. The idea of establishing such a business in the neighborhood of 125th street grew out of his experience in placing graduates from his school with the various business houses in this vicinity. On several occasions, says Prof. Robinson, retail stores on 125th street have asked him to furnish them with girls for secretarial or clerical positions, but when told that most of his girls were colored, they cancelled the order. Jhe professor has a plan for financing bis.

project, and believes that such a store, furnishing competition to the stores run exclusively by white people, would serve to break down the barriers of prejudice against the Negro in business and would cause many of the stores with a large percentage of colored trade to give employment to members of the Negro race.
