THE FEDERATION JOURNAL
THE H. P. N. AND I. CLUB
The H. P. N. and I. Club is composed of
persons who attended the High Point
Normal and Industrial Institute which
school initiated the first noteworthy ed
ucational system for Negroes in High
Point. The club is very active and has
as its main purpose the formation of all
worthwhile endeavors undertaken for the
uplifting of the Negro.
For this year, our special project has
been the writing of a history of the Negro
Citizens of High Point from 1868 to the
present. This is not quite complete, but
our club is hoping that the material we
have gathered will soon be ready for the
press, and that with patience and the con
tinued cooperation of our members we
shall soon see the realization of a dream
Our officers are as follows: President,
Mrs. A. Byrd; vice president, Mrs. A.
Smith; secretary, Mrs. A. Turner; assis
tant secretary, Mrs. D. Rice; treasurer,
Mrs. R. Parks.

God Can Change You, Too
An evangelist visited a man in a pot
tery district who, in his younger days,
had been an infidel. The visitor gazed upon
two magnificent vases contained in a glass
case. “What lovely vases!” he remarked.
“I suppose they are vei-y valuable?”
“Yes,” was the reply. “How much would
vou sell them for?” . With a shake of the
head, the man turned to his questioner.
“All the money in the world wouldn’t
tempt me to part with either of them,”
he answered “Years ago I weis a drunkard,
a gambler — one who sold his soul to the
devil. One day I was persuaded to attend
a revival meeting. I did so, and on going
home I passed a rubbish heap. I saw there
a piece of clay. Evidently someone had
thrown it away as being useless. I pick
ed it up, took it home, kneaded it and
moulded it. Then I went to the wheel and
out of that worthless piece of clay I
made those two vases. I thought to my
self that if I could do, such a thing as
that, then God could do so with me. And
thereafter I placed myself into His hands,
and He has made me a new man.”
ng our Dedicatory song to Morrison:
“O Morison we give our hearts to you,
O Morrison our love for you is true;
when things go wrong and tempted
we may be, your loyal sons can al
ways turn to thee; you took us when
our friends were few, you under
stood and taught us what to do.”
Mrs. E. E. Anderson,
DO YOU JUST BELONG?
MRS. ALICE P. COLLINS
Are you an active member.
The kind who would be missed.
Or are you just contented
That your name is on the list?
Do you attend all the meetings
And mingle with the crowd.
Or do you stay at home
And Complain both long and loud?
Do you take an active part
To help the organization along.
Or are you satisfied to be
The kind to just belong?
Do you ever go to visit
A member who is sick.
Or leave the work for just a few
And then talk about the clique?
There’s quite a program scheduled
That means success if done.
And it can be accomplished
With the help of everyone.
So attend the meetings regularly
And help with hand and heart;
Don’t be just another member.
But take an active part.
Think this over. Fellow Member,
Are we right or are we wrong?
Are you an active member.
Or do you just belong?
