Twelve Wise Men and What They Did for a Race: Schools of the Freedmen's Aid Society of the Methodist Episcopal Church Brought Down to Date
			
for every 500 of the white population of the
United States, there is but one for each
     4,000 of the colored people.  Their poverty and
inexperience crowd them into the most unsani-
tary and disease-breeding sections of our cities
and villages, so that the death rate for all dis-
eases is two to four times as high among them
as it is among the white population. Living
in close contact with their white neighbors,
it becomes not only a matter of humanity and
philanthropy but also one of self-protection,
that they shall be kept from the ravages of
disease, and that the entire population shall
be preserved from the menace of their unfor-
tunate ignorance and inability to ward off dis-
ease.
  The work of this medical college, with its
nurse-training school and  hospital, is abso-
lutely essential to the physical and, indirectly,
the moral and spiritual, salvation of the race.
Its graduates are scattered throughout the vil-
lages and cities of the entire South.
  The Carnegie Foundation and the General
Education Board have each promised a gift
of $150,000, making $300,000 towards and en-
dowment of $500,000.  The $200,000 necessary
to meet the conditions of this gift is being
raised as a part of the Centenary movement.
