We observe further the lead
ers in the respective states bod
ies and associations, sensing the
need of such information havje
endorsed and recommended t9
their respective cogregations to
buy and read Who's Who.
We note that the authors of
this book not only chronicledi
the historiqal facts, but gives
under the same cover many bio
graphical sketches of several
outstanding men and women.
To read the biography of a
man who has surmounted all ob
stacles and achieved honor and
fame through intensified service
is a source o^'information not
only to be preached, but to the
layfhan and student as well.
How the authors could cram
so much material under one cov
er of 400 pages with such a neat
binding and sell the book for
$2.00 When the cost of printing
.and binding is so high marvels

in affectionate 4erms of him be

Avho believe the time is ripe for
a Negro to be named president,
and those who Ihink Lincoln will
prosper better with a white presi
dent. Both factions are in favor
of more Negroes being named to
the facultj' of the institution..
Lincoln has never hafl a Negro
president and its faculty is still
largely white Although an inde
pendent organization, it has
strong affiliations with the Pres
“No names have yet been sub
mitted as c&ndiates for the presi
dency. ” Dr.' Roberts explained
in re;.ily to a (juestion, “and
tlie b(tard of trusetts has made
no decision as to whether the
new presillent should be white
or colored. In fact, color is not
a consideration, we are interest-
ted in getting the be.st man avail
able, for the post, regarless of his
race or eoh)r. ”
Speaking *for himself, Dr.
Roberts continued •
“I think the committee should
meet and decide on the type of
man they waut; what his train
ing should be, and so on. Then
the conunittee should .select that
man who best fits their defini
tion of what a Lincoln president
If Dr. Roberts has his way, the
next Lincoln president would be
“a great educator who can meet
other great educators on their
own level, wherever they hap
pen to be, whether at Yale or
Harvard. 1 would not get a man
because of his ability to raise
money, as important as that is
if the educational leadership is
of the highest calibre, we shall
find it easier to raise money, and
we can always employ people
just for this function”.
While the appointment of Dr.
Robert’s committee would ap
pear that Dr. Wrigh’t’s resigna
tion will be accepted, there is
some sentiment in the board of
trustees that Dr. Wright be draf
ted to remain president luitil ‘43
when he shall have completed .50
years in the service Of Lincoln
and Negro higher education.
This sentiment is especially voic
ed by former president Johnson,
