    THE
Nvart QurdJIen
‘You must not think that our Near
Keel children and youiifl people are
In any way Inferior to American chll
dren." etatea J J. Handaaker. Oregon
Director of the New East Relief. “I
was aniseed when I went through the
land of Borrow a few yearn ago to
find that the children, though varying
In color, were the equal In every
reepost of the boys and girls of Am­
erica. They have the name ambitions
and certainly they have the tame
right to a Joyous childhood that ours
have. They have been deprived of
that childhood
Thousands of chil­
dren have come to ue who have never
laughed or played, and only after
American men and women put their
Ilves Into these unfortunates have
they come to know the real meaning
of childhood.
"On a never to be forgotten day,
when I chose twenty children out ef
a group of 100 to live and waa com­
pelled to leave the reel to their fate
because of lack of funds for their
care, through a moat dramatic Inci­
dent I was to learn of the aacrlflce
of one of my frienda, Fraucoa Gags
of Portland.
A moat attractive young Armenian
woman approached me and said In
eicellenl English that she had been
sent from the orpbauage to help sort
out the children. On Introducing my­
self to her 1 learned that she waa
Nvart (Hoee) Gurdjian of Marsovan.
When I asked her If she had ever
heard of Francea Gage of Portland,
who died In Maraovan. she answered.
"Frances Gage died to save me from
the Turks. Then I remembered bo*
Henry Morgenthau had told us In
New York a few years before how
Francea Uagr had died In rescuing
50 girls who bad been taken by the
Turke from her school for lheir ha­
rems and brothels. Here I waa face
to face with the leader of her school,
the president of the Young Women's
Christian Association and Frances
Gage's chief helper. You may Imag­
ine that Francea Gage's name waa
on our lipa frequently that afternoon.
tor 1 had known and admired her
here, and to Nvart Gurdjian she was
an object of worship.

plulnnd, ‘and because a secretary of
the Y. W C. A. died for me I am
saving my money that I laight actus
time be trained as a Y secretary,
too’."
‘‘The American relief work in the
Near East has coat $7o.oee,e** and 30
American Ilves. Is It worth whlleT
A mlllluo people have been saved
from death and because they have
learned that someone cares, they
have not lost faith In God or man.
"Sixty thousand boye and girls In
lhe Near Kgal are being fed, clothed,
and sheltered dally and trained in
heart, hand and brain to assume
leadership In that country at an ear­
ly dale.
"la It worth while? Thousands of
girls like Nvart have preserved their
purity due to the unselfish workers
who have not hesitated to give their
Ilves for the saftUy of these girls.
"The Portland Community Cbeet
thia year gave 117,040 to this fund
and the remainder of the city quota
of 670.000 Is being sought through
other sources, especially the churches
and Bunday Schools. The Portland
office Is al 513 Block Exchange Build­
ing."
MARCUS GARVEY PLEADS
(Continued from page two)
everything, for lhe cloth» they wear,
for the food they eat. God Is no out­
fitter, no economist, no politician.
That Is why we are not asking God
to give us Africa, and not asking the
while man about getting Africa—
not asking him any more than he
asked the red man, for North Amer­
ica."
"Take ail you can got away with."
“America la respected not because
of her religion but because there la
more money here, more men here
prepared for war than
anywhere
else. It the U. 8. waa a third rate
country, everybody would ride rough­
shod over IL Japan Is respected be­
cause ahe can protect her property
for a long time to come.”
"We must get this program over
before we can get the fellowship
fiom the white race.“
“I believe tn leadership of a race
by itself. Ilogs dont go with chickens
-chickens to chickens and dogs to
dogs. Under the same law of nature
while folk with white folk and black
folk with black folk. Whenever 1 see
a fox In a chicken coop. 1 know he la
after a chicken; whenever I see a
lion among sheep I know he la after a
sheep and whenever I see a white
man among black men. 1 know that
white man la after a Negro.
“If I were a whit* man I’d be a
white man and work for the interest
of while people. If I were a white
man I'd be a member of the Ku Klui
Klan. If I were a Japanese. I'd be a
Japanese and work for the Interest
of Japanese. Nature made me nolther
of thrae and all the things that af­
fect me In the universe Is to work
for the Interest of those who look
like me. Any time a white man or a
Jap tells me he la more interested In
me than his own. he Is a liar.”
"The old way of getUng Negroes
was to wave a red handkerchief.
And as the Negro advanced and
started new things, the white man
beat a drum. He la following us up
as we advance.
He follows his
method and la using diplomacy now.
but diplomacy la another term for
Just plain lying. He will have a hard
time telling the same lie to this
Marcus Garvey—he will have to come
clean or not at all.”
Mr. Garvey closed hie address by
expressing confidence In the white
race as being sportman-like. Ho be­
lieves the white race will assist the
Negro race in acquiring Its own gov­
ernment Just as the black race helped
It to get a firm foothold In America.
He appealed to hia race tor soli­
darity of purpose to have something,
be something and represent some­
thing.
MARY
The following excerpt from a let­
ter of Mre. Talbert to The Advocate
dated at Kristiane. September 13,
1*10, again shows that she was ever
alert In the Interest of her Race:
"This has been tbs chance to let the
world know about the hypocrisy of
the United Btatee,—and the world
known. Women are hero from every
country and nation. It would have
been a calamity if no one were here
to combat Southern lies and propa­
ganda. ... I am rushed to death—
very little time, very, very buoy—I
am pleading the cauaa of Colored
America and the World la listening."
Recently when the call came for
help to put over the program of the
National Aasociation for the Ad-
vancement of Colored People of
which she was a vice president, a few
women came together and unani­
mously made her the bead of a move­
ment against lynching In the United
Blates, known as The Crusaders And
It was under her intrepid leadership
that the Crusaders brought the atten­
