FACTS ABOl'T JOHNNY OWEN
OIK NEXT STATE REPRESENT
ATIVE (9th dist.)
(by J. Johnson)
Johnny Owen was our outstanding
athlete while attending our Omaha
Schools. He is the only Negro ath
lete in the State to win 4 major let
ters; in fact he is our only race 4
tetter man. He won 11 major sports
letters during his High school days.
A record for any athlete to look up
to. A record that will perhaps stand
for sometime in Omaha. Owen was
the leading pitcher of the city during
his school days here. He pitched his
team to a championship, acsinst such
men as Mel Harder (who is now with
the Cleveland Indians) and Hal Mc
Kaine, (who is now with Chicago
White Sox! He played quarter back
on the football team and was the out
standing star each game. He was
the fastest dash man on the track
team and a clean cut basketabll star.
Owen’s qualities of leadership were
eminent, and he being the only Negro
on the teams, he was elected captain
of some team, in each school which
he attended. (Leadership must be
recognized). One of the coaches re
marked: That Johnny Owen was one
of the most courageous athletes he J
had ever tutored, a brilliant scholar
and a gentleman. Through his ath
letic contact Johnny developed a fine
personality, a good sense of honesty,
clean sportsmanship and fair play.
A clean winner and a good loser.
Owen was not only an athlete but a
.fine student and more yet, a scholar.
He was on the highest honor roll
each year, and was exempted from
taking examinations every year, (ex
cepl the year he suffered a broken
leg in football and was absent most
of the term.) Johnny Owen won the
scholarship and deserved it, but
Johnny Goodman, who is a fine golf
er, was also in his class and who is
an orphan boy, needed the award
most, and it was therefore granted
jn his bhealf. With such an out
standing record, one would naturally
get the “big head" or egotistic, but
not so with Owen, he has remained
the same levelled headed, cool, clean
ret* ever smiling Johnny Owen, and
we know if we elect him as the Rep
resentative from this district, he can

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
Oct. 26, 1932—To whom it may con
cern,—Charles G. Thomas wishes to
make a reply in regards to his case
with the World Insurance Co. After
havintr been treated by several Doc
tors and Surgeons from the Nebraska
University Hospital, and two local
physicians, the World Insurance Com
pany sent their Company doctor to
call on Mr. Thomas, and when he had
examined him, and reported the con
dition to the Insurance Company,
they refused to accept his and other
doctors’ statements as true. Why
then, does the World Insurance Co.,
require their policy holders to secure
the services of physicians in order
to collect their disability claims
and have they any other means of
determining the actual condition of
their insured? If they have, I’d like
to know it. I still feel the Company
is unfair.
signed,
Charles G. Thomas.

JOHN ADAMS, JR., CANDIDATE
FOR LEGISLATURE 10 District
_
I stand for safe, sound, honest and
efficient government. If elected to
the legislature, I will support any
sound and logical legislation for the
betterment of my district, city,
county and state. I feel that the tax
burden of the citizen of Nebraska
should be made lighter by the adopt
ion of a program of economy in state
government. I will support any
sound and logical legislation that
might be proposed at the next legis
lation to aid the ex-service-men who
were sacrificed upon the fields of
France by a democratic president. I
will support any sound and logical
legislation proposed, to adopt in the
state of Nebraska the “Old Age Pen
sion Law” as used In many states of
the Union which if adopted would do
away with the poor farms, decrease
the expense of the state in taking
care of the Old, and which will enable
our aged to spend the last days of
their life in their own home instead
of being herded together on county
farms and in poor houses. I will sup
port the legislation which I have rea
son to believe will be introduced at
this legislation to repeal the State
statute providing for deficiency
judgements in foreclosure actions on
real estate. This will be a benefit to
the people of this community and
state who are forced to allow their
property to go into foreclosure be

Will Save Money For
Taxpayers
The state now has three law
enforcement agencies as follows:
1. The state sheriff’s office for
which here is appropriated every
two years $75,000.
2. The state fire marshal s of
fice for which there is appropri
ated $80,000.
S. A bureau in the department
of public works for the enforce
men of motor vehicle laws for
which there is appropriated
$50,000
These appropriations total $20o.
000 and the people do not now get
that much in protection. Under
the present plan the three depart
ments mentioned have separate
offices, separate sets of clerical
help separate sets of state auto
mobiles and separate heads. It
is obvious that consolidation
would mean a saving for the tax
payers.
Those who state that the propos
ed bill will increase taxes are
either unfamiliar with the terms
of the bill or are deliberately
spreading a falsehood for politic
al reasons.
The proposed bill will not only
lower the cost of law enforce
ment by the state, but will save
money for the people in many
other ways:
1. By bringing about a decrease
in automobile deaths and injur
ies the dates for automobile lia
bility insurance and accident in
surance will be cut from 10 to
25 per cent.
2. By stopping the bootlegging
of gasoline in Nebraska the state
will secure every two years from
$600,000 to $800,000 additional
revenue from gasoline taxes.
3. The saving to farmers, wage
earners and business men from
prevented robberies will run into
many hundreds of thousands of
dollars.
The saving in hospital, doctor
and funeral bills from the de
crease in deaths andsinjuries on
the highway will amount to at
least $1,000,000 a year

SUPREME COURT POSTPONES
SCOTTSBORO DECISION OVER
ELECTION
Steps Taken To Release Wright And
Williams.
New York—The United States Su
preme Court last week adjourned un
til November 7, without handing
down a decision on the Scottsboro
Lynch verdicts, arguments on which
was made before it on October 10 by
International Labor Defense Attor
neys. This proceeding, it was pointed
out, is so unusual as to be almost un
precedented in Supreme Court pro
cedure *
cause of their inability to pay the
mortgage.
It is my ambition to be of service
to the laboring: man, to the common
mass of people and especially to un
fortunate humanity. I believe that
the only way prosperity and happi
ness can be promoted in our com
munity and state is for every citiz
en to respect the rights and privileges
of every other citizen, for every citiz
en to co-operate in government and
to obey its laws, and for every citiz
en to do unto others as he would have
others do unto him. Prosperity and
happiness will come when dictation
ceases in our government.
