PROFICIENCY in the treatment of the hair and the skin is the result only of conscientious, scientific study.

Rose School of Beauty Culture

Conducted by a Negro woman for the purpose of training Negro women whose object is to build up a business among a white clientele and who are striving for advancement in this profession, this school enables the student to obtain a high degree of efficiency at a very reasonable cost.
The course of instruction is scientifically planned so as to give correct principles of work by which the student may achieve success and successfully meet the demands of those whom she desires to serve; and a personal interest is taken by the teacher in each student who enters.
Each student must be prepared to devote three months in close application to study and practice. Class lessons are conducted daily and students are required to have certain text books and note books for their work. When satisfactory theoretical development has been attained through work in the class room, the student is given practical work under the direction of the teacher and is thereby able to secure that experience which is so necessary for her self-reliance and stability in work.
This is the opportunity for the young Negro woman of culture and refinement who desires to enter upon a dignified, lucrative profession and who wishes to bring to that profession the best in ambition and intelligence.

Vol. 13-No. 3   January, 1917   Whole No. 75
All last month we were asking what happened in the last election and why. This fact stands out as true: The Solid South with its denial of Democratic government made a real verdict on Mr. Wilson and the rest of the country impossible. -The slave trade in Belgium comes strangely near to us and makes us remember that oppression and injustice know no color line. -Congress is so evenly divided that no legislation for or against the Negro is probable. This turns our attention to the Supreme Court where late in January the segregation cases will come up again. -Football has brought the black man to the fore. On two of the most important small college teams, colored boys have not only played, but they have played brilliantly against the greatest teams of the land, with only Princeton to insult them. How natural. -The sweeping of Prohibition over the country is, undoubtedly, getting at a great evil in the wrong way; but there is no doubt of the great evil and there is no doubt that the wrong way will help the colored laborer more than no way at all. -In the Great War, light is dawning for Poland, not simply German light (in which case we should doubt it), but out of the contending jealousies of all Europe the Polish people will, probably, come to their own and another suppressed race will have a chance for self development after a high noon of despair. -What will President Wilson do for the colored man? What will he do against him? We understand that when replying to the congratulations of certain Pullman porters, his voice shook. It needed shaking. -All hail to Mexico for standing to her guns of argument.

WHAT is to become of the secondary and higher Negro schools that are not smiled upon by the ring of rich philanthropists represented by the General Education Board and like agencies? These excluded schools are undoubtedly in many cases poorly equipped and indifferently  managed. At the same time they are doing and have done the real work of the education of the Negro race. Their accomplishment both in volume and in real efficient result has been ten times that of Hampton and Tuskegee Institutes for the simple reason that they outnumber these schools 100 to 1 and deal with by far the greater number of the children of ten millions.
Instead then of being sneered at and discouraged, they ought to be encouraged, and it is little less than a shame that the United States government with the aid of Thomas Jesse Jones is (as we are assured) about to issue a definitive report recommending all sorts of things tending to extinguish these struggling institutions. 
We are glad, however, that the National Training School, of Durham, North Carolina, despite this handi-[[end page]]
