Du Bois has , _‘ by the writing and publication of his latest book , added one more item to his long list of distinguished contributions to that branch of active Negro thought which is of the very essence of life to the Negro anywhere in the world . Turbulent Period William Edward Burghardt Du Bois was born in Massachusetts on February 23 , 1868 , and has lived through seventy of the most overwhelming years in the history of the world . During his formative years , at home and in high school , he was placed in cirstances which gave him no hint of the coming turbulence in his life as a Negro , so that when the storm broke over his head , it caught him and tossed him and almost ‘ broke him . He who , by reason of the calmness of his environment and his own great gifts of mind , felt himself secure and even superior , su...

schools : A . & T ., Shaw , Johnson C . Smith , St . Augustine , [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 17 December 1940

schools : A . & T ., Shaw , Johnson C . Smith , St . Augustine , North Carolina State . In Virginia there are : Hampton , Union , Virginia State , and St . Paul . And farther north there are : Howard , Morgan and Lincoln . Inasmuch as there are nine member schools in North Carolina and Virgi nia , a school could remain in that vicinity and play all of its games and never come out . Witness North Carolina State ’ s basketball team last season . This is the situation which the Conference has been confronted with since its organization . Still nothing is done abo ut it . Since Morgan and Lincoln produce teams that rank high year in and year out , the southern schools veer away from meeting them . They cannot give the reason that it doesn ’t pay because of the four schools that draw the biggest crowds in conference competition Lincol n , Howard , Morgan , and Virginia State rank highest usually notwithstanding their season . Now ‘ this is a serious challenge to the men who w...

A few years ago West Virginia State College with could not [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 17 December 1940

A few years ago West Virginia State College with could not drew from the Conference because they get _, _~ _niwgJ- g ~ ni _, _~ sto _play . They were willing to come east and play , but the W . Va . State authorities could not get the eatsern teams out to Institute , W . Va . Therefore they resigned . In time they felt better over the matter , but the pocket-book still ruled . Today , Lincoln finds itself much in the same plight as West Virginia . Not so much that it doesn ’t pay to play the Lions , but because they are antagonized , and use subterfuges to cover up . As an excuse for not playing the Lions they give the reason that Lincoln is too far north . A palpable excuse . Baltimore is only _60 miles from Lincoln , a 90 mi nute drive . They don ’t want to p lay the Lions because Lincoln is tough and hard to beat regardless of what kind of teams they have . Have you ever taken note of the fact that a school could stay in North Carolina and play the great majority of its games . I...

Lincoln was represented by Dean George _Johnson and was a charter member of that august body . The C . I . A . A . was organized to produce amicable athletic relations among the various colored schools , and offered an outlet for athletic competition in the various sports . The C . I . A . A . has come a long way since 1912 , and in its coming it has grown shabby and shoddy . For years the conference has been criticized for continuing to use the outmoded Dickinson system for determining the winner in the standings . Its non-rotating policy of game bookings has been dragged over the coals time and time again . But let us look at the C . _I _. A . A . more closely and examine it for all its worth . -
