SON OF ZULU CHIEF TO SPEAK

Mr. Mandikane Cele will Lecture in Union Monday on Armstrong Institute in South Africa.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Mr. Mandikane Cele will speak in the Union next Monday evening at 8 o'clock, his subject being the Armstrong Institute in Africa.

Mr. Cele's mother was the sister of the Zulu king, and his father the chief of one of the principal tribes of that race. His father gave up his position as chieftain to become a missionary, sending his son to the Slater School in Winston Salem, North Carolina, and later to the Hampton Institute in Hampton, Virginia. Mr. Cele there spent seven years, and has just been graduated. During his course, he was President of the Y. M. C. A., captain of the first Company, and end on the football team.

Several of the most eminent educators and business men of the East have planned gradually to build up in Africa an institute, similar to the Hampton Institute in Virginia, and to put Mr. Cele in charge of it. Their belief is that the way to solve the negro problem is to give the negroes confidence and intelligence through work well done. This committee consists of: President A. Lawrence Lowell '77, President Faunce of Brown; Mr. F. Kelsey of the Yale Corporation and president of the Title Guarantee Trust Company of New York; Dr. Henry B. Frissell, president of the Hampton Institute; Mr. W.J. Scheffelin, a trustee of the Hampton Institute; and Mr. John H. Storer '82.
