“PROSPERITY JI'ST AROCND
Editor, Omaha Guide,
The election of the greatest nation
on earth has just passed. The Am.
ericas people who have listened with
patience for many weeks to the can
didates of various parties expressing
their views, on conditions of the
world and this country in particular
have rendered their decision.
The favorite sons of this nation
will now get down to business, and
produce those things, which they say
is posible to do, to establish indust,
ries that will place the country upon
a sound economic basis, that will in
sure the prosperity and happiness in
the homes of every American family.
We supported the candidates we
thought would be fair to our group.
Some were elected and some were
not. We like the rest of th patriotic
citizens of this country, will support
to the last drop of our blood, those
ideals for which those gentlemen
were elected to uphold.

Contacting With Lennox
November 6, 1832.
Dr. G. B. Lennox,
Dear Dr. Lennox:
I am doing perhaps a very unpol
itical thing by writing this letter but
my sense of fair play prompts me.
I was called by phone and invited to
attend the meeting and explained at
that time that through no fault of
mine, the letter I wrote was not re
ceived by you.
It was quite embarrassing to me
to be on the platform with the other
candidates and not able to explain
my reason for beirs? there.
Let me say this that, although I
go into this election without your
support and without my name among i
the ones whom you intend to support, i
I am and always shall be a friend to
your people, as I have always been.
I have attended numerous meetings
of your people and have pledged my
support to them and 1 intend keeping
my word even though it is not writ
When the issue is put by our good
friend Sam Klaver, I trust that I may
have the honor and privilege to sec.
ond that motion.

home owner is unable to obtain funds
for mortgages from any other source
he can then apply direct to any Fed

If the people of your community
are unable to secure the benefits of
this organization through their local
institutions, then it would be entirely
proper to make application direct to

We want you help in telling Om
ahans the truth in this matter. These
are the facts:
Community Chest maintains the
Social Service Exchange which is a
confidential file of the names and ad_
dresses of all persons who have
received or are receiving help. All
relief agencies whether in the Chest
or not use this exchange.
When someone makes application
to any agency for help a call to the
Exchange shows if any other organ
ization is already helping the family.
Thus duplication is avoided and
dollars made to go further.
Here is another thing that you
can help us with:
Some people have questioned Set

organizations such as the Boy Scouts

These people probably do not re.

was cut from the budgets of these or
ganizations last year, their work has
been greatly increased and they are
serving many more people than ever
before. Thousands of men, women,
boys and girls find diversion, recre

of different ones of these agencies.
This is a necessary investment in the
future security of our community.
These organizations are proving
more important now than ever be.
