N egro Youth Wants Peace [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 1 June 1940
N egro Youth Wants Peace Should America enter the war . - , the Negro stands ready now as he has ever stood ready -by pled ged allegia nce to respon d agai n states Dr . Emmett J . Scott , Special Assistant to the Secretary of War during the Wilson Administration , If this statement reflects the opinion of millions of Negroes in the United States , then the Negro ‘ believes that this is a war for democracy , a war against dictatorship , but democratic England has just rushed through dictatorship measures curtailing all civil liberties and nullifying all rights to private property . Can British imperialism whose genius initiated the custom of civilizing their rebellious colonial slaves ‘ by air plane ‘ bom-bings , and whose answer to the demands of the Irish and Indian people for independence is the bullet and hangman ’s noose—can this merrie England honestly ‘ be concerned about the right of self-determination of weak nations ?

Wetco me , Trustees , - A lumni and Friends With this final issue of the year , the LINCOLNIAN is under a new editorial board and takes this occasion to welcome to the campus the Trustees , Alumni and friends of the University . It is not the policy of the _LINCOLNIAN to criticize the Alumni , albeit they may -be lackadaisical in action , and attitude .
