William K. Bell Speaks
To Oueen Street Pupils
William K. Bell, noted Nogro
economist and author, spoke
Thursday to students of Queen
Street high school on the necessity
of Negroes to raise their economic
It is Mr. Bell's contention that
Negroes must support themselves,
must operate successful small
businesses, must strive to create
successful ' large businesses, must
learn not to depend weakly on emo
tionalism but compete honestly and
self-reliantly with all other races.
Mr. Bell was born in Newport,
N. C., March 8, 1892, of poor
parents. His attention to his work
in the Newport Negro school of
those days, a school of only three
months' duration a year, attracted
the attention of several white fam

Leon Mann Jr., the present mayor.
Mr. Bell attended St. Augustine
College in Raleigh, then went to
Howard University, Washington,
D. C., and later did further work
in economics at New York Uni
versity. From 1923 until 1929 he
was in the men's wear business
in New York.
From 1929 on he concerned him
self as writer and lecturer with
a program to induce Negroes to
learn to depend on themselves
economically. His books are: A
Business Primer for Negroes and
15 Million Negroes and 15 Billion
The late Manly G. Mann Sr.,
general manager of Farmers' Co
operative Exchange, Raleigh, said
of Business Primer:
"You cert* Inly da deserve a lot
at credit lor all that yon have ac
complished in this world, and only

very small boy appreciate the ob
stacles which you have overcome."
