The present exodus of Negro labor from the South offers the chance of a generation for bettering the status of colored people throughout America.

To take advantage of the situation requires two additional financial burdens for 1917: a national organizer to take charge of the field work; and a trained newspaper writer who will tackle the very difficult task of getting the facts of the Negro's problems into the daily press.

We need $5000. Can we put you down for five?
