On la^ Sunday Morning at 11
o’clock, a most inspiring message was
brought to us by Dr. H. Q. Morton,
Executive Secretary of the Nebraska
Baptist Convention. Using as a text
St. John 17:19, “And For Their Sakes”
Dr. Morton made a strong appeal for
the Kingdom of God. Quite a large
audience heard him. Many visitors
were present, among them being Mrs.
Morton, the wife of the minister who
spoke. They both exxpressed their
appreciation for the visit and the work
being done by the members of our

' a piano recital given in our church
auditorium. Miss Hayes is the charm
ing daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Hayes
of 625 So. 18th St. To say that she
is a talented pianist is to put it mildly
She showed skill and technique
throughout the program. Those whc
heard her readily agree that she is ar
accomplished young artist. Although
her rendition of “Juba Dance”, bj
Dett was perfect, she received the
most hearty encore when she so beau
tifully played, “Valse Arabesque”
by Lack. Miss Hayes made a verj
beautiful picture as she was seatec
at the “Grand” piano, donated through
the courtesy of the Schmoller & Muel
ler Co. She was assisted by Miss
Ethel Hughes, of our church. Miss
Hu hes possesses a sweet soprano
voice, and Sunday evening she
seemed at her best. Her master
pieces, “The Voice In The Old Vil
lage Choir” and “Sing! Sing! Birds
On The Wing,” were most success
fully done. Miss Hughes was accom
panied by the pianist of our church,
Miss Addie Foxall. The ease and
e-race which are always with Miss
Foxall at the piano were demonstrat
ed by her Sunday evening.

Following the Recital, two of our
young people were joined in wedlock.
The bride before her marriage was

The St. John’s Booster Club has
ever to live up to its name, Boosting,
through the fourteen years of its ex
istence, has been its chief business.
In season and out, the Club has stuck
religiously to the task of putting St.
John Church on the map financially,
intellectually and otherwise. Nor has
it forgotten its spiritual and moral
j obligations to the Church and the
Community. One of the Club’s most
i cherished hobbies is that of making
happy the Ministers and their wives
who have served the Church. Lart
Wednesday night, October 19th,
when the Reverend and Mrs. Wilson
w-ere the Club’s honored guests at an
farewell party, was no exception to
the rule. We are just fashioned that
way. To be on hand when things are
going well is not enough. The Boos
ter club has come to the rescue of
each Pastorate at its darkest hour.
The Home of Miss Lucas and Mrs.
Bailey has always been open for our
affairs. In his remarks. Reverend
Wilson recalled that his welcome and
farewell parties were held under the
same roof. The evening was spent
in glorification and the presentation
of a program consisting of remarks
by Mrs. Rachel Woods, our Vice
President, solos by Mesdames Hous
ton and Starms and Miss Cuma Wat
i son, readings by Mesdames Bailey
and Shackelford. Desiring not to be
j left off the program, a quintet con.
sisting of Messrs Shackelford, Straw.
| thers, Anthony. McVay and Webb,
i harmonized some old, familiar melo
dies. Mrs. Woods aptly put it that
we did not come to celebrate tile de
parture of Rev. and Mrs. Wilson, but
rather to pay tribute to them for the
work they had done while stationed
j here- And this we believe is the spir.
; ft which should characterize every
club and member of St. John Church.
For after all we serve God, not the
minister. We are putting ’the pro
gram over for . the Church not the
Pastor. In their remarks, Rev. and
Mrs. Wilson thanked the Boosters for
the cooperation given them and ex
tended an invitation to the club to
visit them at their new appointment.
The menu was chicken, salad, potato
chips, hot rolls, coffee, ice cream,
and cake. Besides the regular club
members those present were: Mr. and
Mrs. Geo. Ray, Mr. and Mrs. Starms,
Mesdames Georgia Cropp, Willie
Green, McVay, and Butler, ’ Mr. An
thony and little Louise Sampson and
Lawrence Parker. By suggestion of
Mrs. L. L. McVay all present joined
hands and sang. “God be with you
till we meet again”, and the party
was over. M. E. Webb, reporter.
NINE CANDIDATES APPROVVED
BY BAR ASSOCIATION FOR
Seventy-five prominent lawyers of
the fourth district held a dinner
meeting at the Rome Hotel Friday
night to make final plans for the
election of the nine condidates en
dorsed by the "Lawyers Recommenda
tion committee, after a refendum tak
en by lawyers of the fourth judicial
district, sevreal months ago.
The candidates who were endorsed
are Judges Redick, Hastings, Leslie,
Rhoades, Thomsen, Fitzgerald, Dineen
Deputy County Attorney Yeager and
J. T. Dysart Most of the candidates
were present at the meeting.
Louis J. TePoel, manager of the
Lawyers’ Recommendation campaign
presided at the dinner and the speak
ers were Paul L. Martin, Frank H.
Gaines and former Judge Fred A.
“Good judges of proven ability are
a protection to the people,” said
Gaines. “It is necessary for the vot
er to know the qualifications of those
contact with judges and fellow law
yers, seeking judicial office, every day.
For the protection of their clients and
to assure justice in the courts, lawyers
should inform the general public of
whom they consider best judicial cali
bre. We iis lawyers have no selfish
motive in urging that the voters se
lect the best fitted judicial candidates.”
“Undermine our courts and you un
dermnie the very foundations of our
government,” said Judge Wright “I
believe lawyers have tffe right and
duty to tell the public what they
know regarding judicial candidates.
Some men are naturally poor judges
because of temperament or bias. I
believe the community at large has
enouth faith in the reputable lawyers
of the community to heed their ad
vice regarding the best fitted candi
dates for judge.”
Paul L. Martin, chairman of the
Chambre of Commerce executive com
mittee, explained how the lawyers of
the district arrived at the selection of
the Lawyers’ Recommendation slate,
after a secret ballot. He told of the
campaign being carried on to elect
these nine candidates.
Wihile the dinner was in session,
those present heard Harley Moorhead,
treasurer of the campaign committee,
speak over KOIL He said in part:
“In proposing these nine candidates,
we are not attempting to dictate to
the voters. We only wish to perform
the voters. We only wish to perform
a service to the public to bring about
more intelligent voting for candi
dates for district judge.”
“I can say without reservation that
lawyers of the district in passing the
information on to voters regarding
these nine candidates are doing so
with the unselfish desire of obtaining
the election of the best possible
judges. In defining the word best, I
mean those who have the qualifications
of honesty and integrity, fair learning
in the law, common sense, experience
in the practice of law, impartiality,
patience, and willingness to work.
Freedom from politics and from po
litical friends seeking favors is an
i other prerequisite.”
Moorhead warned voters of the dis
trict aizainst “guessing as to qualifi
cations and voting on a name that

EDWARD R. BURKE
Indications are that the colored vot
ers of Omaha are voting for Gover
nor Roosevelt for President, Governor
Bryan for Governor and Edward R.
Burke for Congress in large numbers.
Burke has an outstanding record
as a public servant of Omaha and
even right now, he is endorsing the ,
Omaha Guide’s fight to get proper
representation of the Colored tax pay
ers on the public pay roll.
Burke contends that colored em
ployees should have the same precent
age of public jobs as they pay taxee. j
Burke also believes that the ex
soldier who fought for the country
when the country needed them and
who are now hungry, should now be
allo\frfcd to borrow money on their in
surance policies. Burke says that
needy soldiers should be given their
soldiers bonus. Big business gets all
the money it wants from the govern
ment when it is in want and now
when the soldiers who risked their
life for the government, make a re
quest for help, it is denied them by
the republican president and the re-!
Burke is also for the repeal of the
I8th amendment. He says that the
only way prosperity can be returned
is by giving the farmer better prices
for their products and more work to ]
the working man and that the only [
way this can be done is to use the |
farmers grain for making liquors and
give the working man a job in the
factory which will open up as soon
as the the 18th amendment is repeal
Burke has a record of being partic
ularly fair to colored voters. He has
an excellent record as president of the
Omaha School Board, president of the
Omaha Bar Association and president
of the Omaha ten year plan. Many
believe he will lead the democratic

of it now, and I told him so. What
is your opinion concerning this?—

I am on your side, too. Neither
