Abraham Cohen, instead of Walter.
The above editorial from the Austin
American is very significant in sev
eral respects. It is admitted that
Walter L. Cohen, who was confirmed
as Collector of the Port ot New Or
leans. La., has both character and
ability, and in fact, is qualified in
every respect with one exception—
HIS COLOR—to fill the position to
which he has been appointed. Mr.
Cohen la not responsible for his
color or his name, but he is responsi
ble for his character. Character Is
the quality that makes the heaven
gates fly wide and nothing else.
If the people of this country will
give more attention to CHARACTER
and lews to COLOR, we will have
fewer Teapot Dome Oil and other
scandals now engaging the attention
of the world.
People who hare nothing but
COLOR to boast of as a qualification
of fitness to fill high positions, are
like the man who built his house on
a sandy foundation.
