It is known that a few negroes have been induced, to go to Mexico, lured there by German promises of an invasion of tne United Statss followed by equal rights for negroes. The number who have been persuaded to make this move is comparatively small. Educators who have worked among the negroes for years say that there is not a more loyal band of people in the country than the black men. They point out that the negro has taken an active part in every American war. A move is on foot in Albany, Ga., to recruit a negro company, and throughout Southeastern Georgia there are incessant inquiries from the negroes as to whether or not they will be allowed to enlist or will be included in the first draft. Community leaders in such counties as Calhoun and Butler, Ga., where the negroes outnumber the whites about 25 to 1, say that they fear no trouble.
