But it isn't, the Negro might have been more easily influenced by the treacherous Ilun propaganda than any other American, but he wasn't. H+ never has been disloyal, and never will. He know.c that he is part and parcel of the greatest country in the world; and for that country he stands as firm as the Rock of Gibraltar, and will not sell his birthright for a mess of pottage. \vlri n asked to volunteer he over - filled the units set apart for him. \vhen drafted he went with a cheer fulnes-s that amazed all observers. Xvhen asked to subscribe for Liberty Bonds and Thrift Stamps he often over'subscribed his quota. \vii-cr mnnmainled to go over 'the top in France he almost invariably distinguished himself. Is there any wonder that. He craves a publication giving him just credit for services that he so willingly rendered his country?
