THE COLORED SOLDIER
Some t me ago it was said that the
War Department had anticipation of
stationing a detachment of Colored
ft ld;'~r« at Fort Omaha, owing to a
f\ |H*t't ion gotten up by. sfcrne of the
white residents on the northside and
tb~ order was revoked. Your report
er by chance met one of his old
friend* that has lived in the neigh,
borhood of Fort Omaha for fifty
years and in those years that was a
regimental fort. He said this de
tachment of men were the moet hon
est and gentlemenly that he can re
member evfcr being stationed out
there. He denies he had anything to
do sdth Peterson. With a personal
convict and observation I heartily a_
gree with my friend as I have been in
Omaha myself for forty.six years.
In part we must give some of the
credit to Sgt. M. A. Clark in charge
of this detachment of the 10th U. S.
Calvary with eighteen years of ser
vice. He is of an unassuming dis
position a disciplinarian.
C. H. Spriggs, report.

who have served eighteen years in
Sgt. Melmus A. Clark, Corporal
William Cullens, Pfc. George Baker,

The “High Lights of Negro His
tory”, in short, is a minature edition
of the Negro Year Book, filled with
ready reference information concern
ing the Negro; small enough to be
carried in the pocket, and priced
cheap enough (fifty cents) for those
who cannot, or do not care to pay $2
for a more complete and compre
hensive reference work.
• • •
In many places in the volume, Mr.
Love, has acknowledged the Negro
Year Book as his source of inform,
ation, but even without such acknow
ledgement, particularly to one who
has read the NegTO Year Book, one
will readily appreciate that Mr. Love j
is deeply indebted to Dr. Work, for
outside of typographical errors and
omissions the “High Lights of Negro
History” is but a brief copied com
piled from the more reliable, and bet
ter known, “Negro Year Book.”

Deafness vs. Love—“When A Feller
Needs A Friend”—Three Aspects of
Heredity—Birth Control may be Justi.
fiable—Read and Reflect!
(For advice, write to Maxie Miller,
care of The Literary Service Bureau,
516 Minnesota Avenue, Kansas City,
Kansas. For personal reply send self
addressed, stamped envelope.)
MAXIE MILLER:—I am 26, and
I’m deeply in love, for the first time
in my life. The man I love wants to
marry me and can give me a good
home, but this man is getting deaf.
His mother and his grandmother
were both de&f, and I understood this
means heredity. I might make out,
but I don’t want any deaf children.
It looks like a sin to have them. I
don’t know what to do, because I do
love this man and believe he will
make me a good husband. Tell me
what you think I ought to do.
PUZZLED POLLY:—You do have
a problem, but not as difficult as
many others have. No doubt this
deafness is hereditary, but it is not
a dangerous thing to you or to oth- j
ers. Seems to me if a woman loved 1
a man she would not let a thing like
this stand in the way. She’d marry
him and help him to succeed despite
the handicap. As to children, it
might be a case where birth control
would be justifiable. Consider the
questions from these view points and
Race prejudice must go. The Fatherhood of God
and the Brotherhood of Man must prevail. These are
the only principles which will stand the acid test of good
citizenship in time of peace, war and death.
(1) We must have our pro-rata of employment in
businesses to which we give our patronage, such as groc
ery stores, laundries, furniture stores, department stores
and coal companies, in fact* every concern which we sup
port. We must give our citizens the chance to live res
pectably. We are tired of educating our children and
permitting them to remain economic slaves and enter in
to lives of shame.
(2) Our pro-rata of employment for the patronage
to our public corporations such as railroad companies,
the street car company, the Nebraska Power Company,
the Northwestern Bell Telephone Company and other
establishments which we are forced to support by right
of franchise. Also our pro-rata of employment in re
turn for the taxes we pa^ in our city, county state and
(3) To encourage the establishment of a first class
hospital that we may get the best that there is in medical
science from our doctors whom we know to be nearest us,
also to encourage a high respect of them and encourage
more of our girls to take nurse training.
(4) A one hundred per cent deportment of our cit
izens in our public or private places of business, especial
ly on street cars. If we are to be respected we must act
respectably, especially in public places where we are con
stantly before the public’s eye.
(5) A one hundred per cent membership in the Om
aha branch of the NAACP. should be had to encourage
the efforts put forth by the founders of the organization
and to assist the general office to establish a five million
dollar endowment fund to maintain operating expenses
and to further the principles of the NAACP. All peo
ple of all races must be educated up to a higher principle
and a more thorough understanding of interracial rela
tionship that our county may in reality be a government
of the people, for the people and by the people in whole
and not in part.
(b; The re-establishment ot the Christian Religion
as Christ taught it, for the uplifting of mankind, elimin
ating financial and personal gain. A practical Christian
Religion, week day as well as Sunday. An attitude to
ward our fellowman as a brother in order to establish a
principle which will guide the destiny of each other’s
children; our neighbor’s children today are our children
(7) Courteous treatment in all places of business
and the enforcement of the State Civil Right Law.
(8) To encourage and assist in the establishment of
the following financial institutions near 24th and Lake
Streets: A building and loan association, a state bank,
and, also, a first-class trust company for the purpose of
administering aid and assistance to our widows and
(9) To encourage the erection of a one hundred
thousand dollar Young Men’s Christian Association
Building near 24th and Lake Streets.
(10) To enlarge the Young Women’s Christian As
sociation that it may supply sufficient dormitory accom
(11) To teach our citizens to live economically with
in their earning capacity by printing in each issue a bud
get system for various salaries.
(12) To make Omaha a better city in which to live
by inaugurating a more cosmopolitan spirit among our
(13 To put a stop to the Divorce Evil by passing a
State law making the mistreatment of a wife or a hus
band by either of them, a criminal offense to be decided
by a jury, first offense, jail sentence of a short duration;
second offense, one of longer duration; third offense, <
from one to five years in the penitentiary. This, we be- ]
lieve will make men and women think before marrying. I
(14) We must become owners of the city govern- j
ment by paying a seemingly higher salary to those whom ]
we employ to administer its affairs, a salary that will at- ]
tract men of high calibre.
