One Tenth Of A Nation As we move’ in step , in every line of ten walks one Negro . —President Wright . Today in these parlous times , the American Negro is being courted on all sides by politicians , financeers and the like , to play a potent force in the presidential , campaign . Since the enactment of the Thirteenth Amendment , the Negro has not been a steip-child in American life , but a person with-out the general scheme of things . He is very seldom reckoned with when bills are formulated and passed by the House or Senate , and only in dire circumstances is the public mind focused on this under-privileged , dis-franchised , and poverty-stricken group . Neither a nation , nor a country can hope to achieve unification of effort while a race or minority group is subjugated and exploited within its territorial limits . Fourteen billion dollars has been apipropriated for pre-

The Lisle Fellowship by T . E _. Bolden , ‘ 41 ( Continued From Last _Issue of The Lin _coinlan ) There are other similar situations that I and other members of the Fellowship ran into . At times you might be the only person serving one entire community . Again there might be five serving three churches . Sunday that would entail a split in ‘ both the church service and the Sunday School , It was nothing for each member of a team to have fourteen services on Sunday . There might ‘ be a little church out in the country , the congregation of which ‘ had never ‘ been in contact with an intelligent Negro ; there might be a jail whose inmates would tell the boy from Australia on Saturda y that they wanted none of that Hell Fire and Dam nation Stuff . The team might be required to put on a program for the young _mothei’s in Cardosia on Saturday .

The Challenge of Religion loyalty of their adherents , even to the death , So , too , religion will demand the unqualified loyalty of the marginal Christian in the building of a better society .

By Lendalt Chase Religion dwell’s in , the soul of man and is as eternal as the being of Man _.-.--Carlyle . The discordance , the chaos , and the maladjustment of our times is not new in the history of man . The evils of our world have presented ’ themselves in every age , to each generation . Because of the subtleness of evil it has presented , itself in new forms , in new disguises ; yet mankind has always ‘ been able to develop new techniques to meet its onslaught . In times like these the intangible forces of our world , no less real because of their intangibility , are ridiculed and cast ‘ aside as being of no consequence . Of these forces that have ‘ borne the brunt of ridicule , religion stands in the forefront , I do not question Carlyle ’ s statement concerning religion , _I accept religion , I believe in religion . I believe in religion , not as a huddle of sects or a ‘ bundle of creeds ‘ but as a way of ‘ life , a great law and principle of being . The challenge of relig...
