SEPARATE LEGION POSTS
Our attention has been called to
what we hope is an untruth: a mem­
ber of the local Post of the American
Legion, a colored ex-soldier circulat­
ing a petition for the purpose of or­
ganising a branch of the Legion in
Portland for colored men. From our
viewpoint a separate Post will do the
colored ex-soldiers' cause more harm
than good; besides it will strengthen
the belief of the white race that the
colored race is happy and better con­
tented when It is segregated and Jim-

Your Patronage Desired
Courteous Treatment to All
DO YOU BELIEVE IN RECIPROC­
ITY? WE DO
The Advocate has always striven to
give to its patrons the very best it
was capable of. and able to give, and
it stands ever ready and willing to
continue so to do. At the same time,
however. The Advocate expects those
patrons to whom It gives free space
from week to week and year to year,
when they have printing or any other
work done that The Advocate is In
a position to do for the same price as
others, to give it to The Advocate to
do. This is no more than right and
just, as we see it. However, if those
people who persist In giving every­
thing which they have to pay for, say
printing of cards, tickets, posters,
dodgers, programs, etc., to the white
business man and then bring us that
which they want done free, we give
them fair warning that The Advocate
will not continue the free business
to such persons. We believe if you
give your paid business to the white
man. then he Is the one to do your
free business, too. Is not this fair
and equitable? For years we have
published a free column for the var­
ious churches, »nd are still doing so.
Each week the churches send in their
notes and we publish them without
charge, and we naturally expect
those who are benefited thereby,
when they have something in the
printing line which they must pay
out money to have done, to come our
way with the same. Recently a local
church woman, -whose church notes
we have been publishing for years,
after having been asked to let us
give her a price on her printing tor
a certain entertainment she was
planning, took her work to a white
man and brought us a poster to stick
on our wall. We are just wondering
why thia poster was not taken to this
white man to put on his wall. We
ask our patrons if they think this is
fair. Every word in The Advocate
coats us money to have done, there­
fore. unless our patrons help us. we
cannot help them.
