Bordentown, N. J., July 26, 1918. THE TRESIDEIT.

We the women of New Jersey in convention assomled at Bordentorn, Nov Jersey, do hereby pledge our loyal support in this the nation’'s erisis.

We are promoting another great thrift stamp drive. He are emphasising the food conservation measure and making a special effort in behalf of our

Boys at Camp Dix. We however deplore the fact that lynching is on the increase there

being thirty five more in the first six honths of this year than in the corresponding time of 1917 and 1916. We further deplore the fact that with our goverment control of railreads that negro soldiers who are

fighting for democracy as well as all Anericans are still forced to ride in Jim Crow ears. We are still waiting and praying for one outspoken word from you

against these deplorable conditions.

Mr. President:

We, the members and friends of the First Congregational Charch of Atlanta in worship ascembled Sunday evening, July 28th, 1918, have just listened to the reading of your recent addrees to the country on the mob spirit. We regard this the most significant expression enanat-

If the people of our country will lay to heart this burning message coning straight from the heart of the worlds foremost champion
