MANY THOUSANDS 

BID FAREWELL TO 

NEGRO DRATEES 



Tears Mingled With Cheers As Train 
At Union Station Pulis Away From 
Greatest Demonstration Since Dec- 
laration Of War With Germany, 

COLORED MEN LEAVE WITH 

GREATER HONOR THAN WHITES 



Were Not Given A Chance To Volunteer Their 

-Services To The Country. Can. Not Be 

Classed As Slackers. 588 St. Louisans Leave 



Twenty-five thousand p*r*on» gatb 
■orcd at Union Station Tue*day night to 
bid farewell to 480 drafted Colored 
men who were leaving for the fo- 
ment cantonment at ft. Funston, J 
than five thousand had witnessed 108 
leave the night before. The firat squad 
was from the Sixth Ward of St, Loui*, 
the second from 34 wards, all but the 
8lh, null, and 13th which -haa uo negro 
draftees. 

A apirit of notnotio cheer prevailed. 
Tile big crowd iu of one purpose, to 
encourage the boy* who had been called 
upon to defend the flag, to "Make the 
World Safe for Democracy. " While 
thousand* cheered^ than were reaia and 
sorrow that added pathos ID tbe part 
friend* who ware probably paying a 
hundred* of dearest relative* and 
friend* who were probably saying * 
laat farewell to-loved ones. There were 
heartrending parting* whieJ> tested the 
taetal of joung mulAoa ,> Kuii''^sih>ed 
weeping wives, -mother* and listers to 
ensure their greatest lorrow. Many 
women, prostrated, had, to be carried 
from the scene. 

When the Burlington train palled out 
of Union Station Tuesday night at 8:30 
away from the great eat patriotic dom- 
onrtratioin. Colored or white, St. Loui* 
haa wen since the declaration of, war, 
it left one thousand more voting Colored 
men who must later follow their it*. I 
wart brothers; how many more onlv 



time will tell. 

The boys arrived in Kansas City 
nboul seven o'clock Wednesday morn- 
ing and after enjoying a hearty break- 
fast at the atation departed at 8:30 
over the Union Pacific for Camp Funs- 
ton. All appeared to ho in a jolly mood. 
Many were hoarse from cheering the 
night before. It waa well after mid_- 
night before the crowd quieted down. 
Honor In This Draft, 

The Colored cititens had every reason 
to feel a diitinctivc pride in the boys 
who wore going to Camp Funston. Al- 
though subjected to the selective draft, 
theybore higher honor tbu the con 
scriped whites. They had beta refused 
the right to volunteer their eervleea. 
They were not slacker*. How many of 
that number would bar* volunteered, 
no one can say; but it i* certain that 
there are many Colored young men in 
St. Louie who sought to enlist and ware 
refused and Jtfaers wh£would..-hnve 
dono'so had the way been. opened 
show their valor. Ifgiven^a eha 
they would have beon a big factor in 
Oiling St. Louis' quota of Colored sol 
lien, and I relief for many who hnvi 
been compelled to leave dependents be

tatorial, presides splendidly and keeps 
complete order at all times. The dele- 
gates began to arrive Tuesday morning 
and by Wednesday noon were most all 
in. Bev. J. A. Winters of Chicago is 
present and from the smile on his face 
out predictions are a round report from 
the Windy City. Bishop Jamison came 
here from Kftnsas City after closing the

waa in session last week. This confer 
once Is eipaeted to surpass all other

With regard to franchises — 



We want the City Government to let 

us use that $480,000 a year for better ser- 
vice, better wages and a fair dividend on 
investment recognized by the City. 

We want the City Government to 

treat the street railway system a« a public 
service whose efficiency is vital to the public's 
health and comfort, and not as a source of 
political revenue. 



We want the City Government to quit 
fighting our existing; franchises. 

We want it either to drop its suits 

8Sr£ i h o! m; - or to confirm them f « »" *«>■ 

bnes to 1948 ,n a new ordinance; or in, the 
public • interest, to extend them fifty years 
as it offered to do last July. 

We want the City Government in one 

of these ways to guarantee our right to do 



business for a term ofyears, so that we may

refund bonded debt and extend the system

DEPARTED WITH HONOR. 

An we stood and watched the departure of the list contingent 
of the Negro drafted men for the training camp at Fort 
Funston laat Tuesday night, we aaw on their facea the badge of 
honor. Conscripted, yea, drafted! yes; sent to the training camps 
against their will, No! No! That charge cannot be made against 
them. The government could have had three time's that number 
of Negroes who would have gladly velunteered their service to go 
to the front,, had only the restrictions been removed. 

Different will be their feelinga, and the public will see them 
in a different light to that of the white men who were conscripted. 
For the whit« men had every opportunity to volunteer their servi- 
ces. They were given their choice to accept, or enliat in 
any branch of the service. Thia of course, was denied the col- 
ored men. Despite statements to the contrary, the volunteer 
service holds a seat of high honor and refuses to bow to conscript 
call. But those colored men from all over this country who have 
answered the call of their government, have done their best. Their 
roll call will be one of honor. Though they were drafted. 



MAKING GOOD. 

Nearly thirty thousand colored people gathered at Union Sta- 
tion last Tuesday night to say "farewell— good-bye," to the boys 
recently selected to help make up the National Army. There 
seemed to be a mixture of joy and sadness on the part of most of 
those interested in the occasion. The joy seemed to come with 
the satisfaction that these men now have the chance to make good; 
the sadness came with the thought of leaving home, friends and 
loved ones to fight for their country, but the supreme thought was^ 
as these men shall fill their places and fight for a world's democ- 
racy and for freedom and liberty, they will remember that those 
of their race whom they left behind, are longing for the same free- 
dom and democracy at home. * 



POLITICAL CONFERENCE. 

A few of the political "bosses" got out of town a few days ago, 
and down at Eicelisior Springs, where they were quite sure that 
none of their Negro constituents could hear anything that waa 
■aid and. it has leaked out, they then and there made up their 
slate. 

Some of the men in the party we hate the utmost confidence 
in. We believe they are willing to give the Negro some recogni- 
tion in their party councils: we believe they are broad enough to 
see that the best interest, to all concerned, is to consult with some 
of the strongest leaders among the colored race when making their 
slates, beoause there are some men, who will certainly have to un- 
dergo a change of heart before the colored people will support 
them. 



OUR WORST ENEMY. 

Two weeks ago we stated that we would publish clippings 
from two daily papers containing statements in regard to the Ne- 
gro. We regret to state that lack of space prevented us from car- 
rying out our plan immediately, as the same appears in thia issue 
of Th* Argat. We ask our readers to judge for themselves the 
merit of the statement. 



THE PEOPLES INTEREST AT STAKE. 

The first cold snap this week brought thousands of complaints 
from the pmoph. "We need more Street cars." "These cars are 
cold" was their cry. The interest and welfare of the people are 
at stake. The people have servants (The Board of Aldermen) 
whom they are depending upon to look after their interest. The 
people want more cars! they want better service! and they want a 
more liberal transfer system. If the Board of Alderman are work- 
ing to that end. wetland good, but if on the other-hand, by their 
acts, the welfare of the people is defeated —then they must be held 
•o a strict accountability for their stewardship.
