A a a.  -.->�-====entered As second class matter at Post office at Galveston under the act of March 3, 1879. A. Veston Texas. A saturday nov. 20/ 1920 a a a a \ not so with Central prof. W. A Janies White principal of the Ball High school of Galveston. Reported in thursday s Galveston morning news that All graduates of the Ball h ugh school who Atte Iid colleges and Quot universities of other states make splendid records attaining an average of 5.44 for class work indeed this is a signal Honor for Ball High school the faculty and Galveston a school system As it concerns the White schools. But no such Good news comes from the coloured graduates who graduate from Central High school and enter colleges and universities of other states. \ we would that it w As so but amp Las it is not. In order that the. Blame for this unholy set Back to the coloured graduates May tie Clear in Tjie minds of those who read this right Here we Are going to Tell it. When it comes to one Hundred per cent efficient teachers Central High school has them equal to any in Ball High school or any other school for that matter but the. Two sided bumb Messy curriculum As mapped out for the coloured schools of Galveston Are to far below the Standard of the. Curriculum for the who t e schools that it makes it impossible for the coloured student to make a decent showing compared with other coloured High schools of Texas. In Quot the Ball High school the students have available every thing neg Cesary Well it Ted Hattries and Etc. Science school., All of these particular Are not Tai ight it is optional with the coloured students which they will take. And lest you Forg it the coloured teachers had Noth ing to do with making to the curriculum either so they a a Are not to blame. Aside from the above hindrance mention there a the miserable Over crowded school rooms and the double session All of which Over taxes the teachers shorten the period of study for the student which hinders them from getting a thorough knowledge of the various subjects they Are studying. A what we have said Here is not a protest in behalf of thie coloured people of Galveston no Noton your life but we simply wanted the facts known for any other coloured people but ,.these in Galveston Wou a take a determined stand arid contend for these things that Are rightfully theirs or the y would at least do some howling to the school Board about the Mattei. There was a time when Cental High school was f to is for the High ratin g of its graduates because of its Strong curriculum when we were barefooted chasing rat. Bits thru the Fields of Victoria our dad heard of it and wanted to Send us Here. Far and wide when the question of a Good school arose Central High school of Galveston was recommended. Maybe when the school Board slices off another piece of. The curriculum and because of crowded conditions students will be forced to hold their class recitation under the school building then coloured Galveston might Wake up with a Gap. It is no longer a question of what the school Board will c?0 for us but what we will do for ourselves. It if a coloured student is Given Only a half a Day in school and the White student is Given a whole Day with the curriculum of the coloured school a Messy feeble collection equal to a Well Grade county school while that in the Whie school supposed to be the. Same system is equal to a College curriculum How in the name of. Moses can the coloured student compete the Law of to e a survival of the fittest will decree that jul coloured student must go Down in detect before those of Superior training. 7party won a Victory.
