paredness . President Roosevelt has called for a total de [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 2 November 1940
paredness . President Roosevelt has called for a total de fense of the western hemisphere . Defense cannot be total , neither can unification of effort be achieved unless the American Negro and other citizens be incorporated in our total _defei’ise plan . Too long have industries , unions , and government been willing to relegate the Negro to the tail end . The Negro is not a mendicant but a race of people striving to build a better America on a basis of amic ~ ab 1 e race _relationst The Army and Navy cannot and must not continue their ‘ discriminatory practices in building a new army and a larger navy . As we move in step , in every line of ten walks one Negro . If he is out of step , it is a ragged march . America must be true to itself and to its citizens . The approach to the solution of our racial problems is not one of segregation as practiced in the armed services of our country , but one of qualification and experience . The nation rings with the cry of Defend Democracy , S...
After Homecom in g--- What ? [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 2 November 1940
After Homecom in g--- What ? It seems unfortunate that the Lincoln University football schedule is not so arranged that the Morgan game would follow the Howard game . For since the disastrous season of 1938 , the idea has taken hold that whatever games come after the Morgan game are of negligible importance . This deplorable conception has permeated pra _’ _~ tically the whole world of Lincoln gridiron followers . Three years ago everyone was telling everyone else what a beating the Bear was going to give the Lion . Morgan won that 1937 game , 19-6 , aided by two very freakish touchdowns . It was just another hard fought game lost and Captain ’ Beak Bailey ’ s mates went right through the remaining games without a defeat . One of the most potentially powerful Lincoln teams ever assembled was listed to stop the Morgan winning ways in 1938 . Morgan won handily , 21-0 and the whole season went up in smoke . Only a surprise 6-0 victory over Union saved the gridiron year from being a tot...
