Unite and Win

nothing more- mtinue to divide and lose. We won
; we are hopeful that this will eventually en
look abroad in the land a little cloud;

dicates an abundance of rain to enliven, refresh and en-,
ur now nearly arid and parched plain. Groups of!
our people are uniting, here and there, demanding and se-i
curing employment, for example, of members of our race!
jr patronage. Such representation may
be riispropo ite and inadequate but it is a good be

for a definite and fixed purpose, is the little cloud of

much unnecessary division harms us.”
Why can we not, so far as our community is con

To the political aspirants, we should like to offer
the following suggestions:
1. Be guided by your own convictions.

4. Beware of the candidate elect who is afraid to come
in your community and submit his platform.

THE FATAL DOCTRINE OF HATE
(The Star of Zion)
Perhaps there is nothing in this country that is
harming the Negro race more than the fatal doctrine of
hate whieh our so-called “leaders” are instilling into the
hearts of our people. There is no occasion for it. It
makes us bitter and savage and is turning twelve millions
of people who are by nature friendly and genial into a
mental mass that will work eternal injury to this race
if it continues.-the Negro claims to want to follow
in the footsteps of one by the name of Christ and asks
others to follow after Him. What can there be in this
strange religion that preaches human love and fosters
Every man and woman in this world who thinks
at all knows that there are wrongs and injustices on this
earth that need tobe righted, but can these be righted
with hate? Need we manifest bitter dislike for every
man and woman of other races because a few wrong some
other few? Let us get some idea of perspective into
these skulls of ours and stop hating and preaching hate.
Meet The Situation
Despite conditions, sincere cooperation is being
fostered through our many charitable organizations. The
wonderful spirit shown in the social uplift of the com
munity is indeed gratifying—and yet there are many, des
perately in need, who are not securing help. It isn’t al
ways the most ragged and dirty fellow who is in need.
It isn’t just fair to refuse help to the individual
who happens to have a few of the comforts of life left
over from the good old days. A telephone is not a lux
ury, it is an essential. Let’s look this situation square in
the face and put yourself in the other fellow's place.
Match your pride with his pride, you’ll see that things
being equal to the same things, are equal to each other.
Many of us have possessions of which we can’t dispose,
yet we can’t make them answer for the necessities of life.
Every effort should be put forth to remedy this
situation in our community and see that proper investi
gations are made before refusing help.
It should be well to remember that in this struggl
ing world the pendulum always swings back.

Zacarias—The Strong Minded Father
(The Literary Service Bureau)
Text: And he asked for a writing
table, and wrote, saying, His name is
John—St. Luke. 1:63.
Zacarias had a vision. He was in
formed that Jehovah would bless him
by giving him a son; and he was
given the name by which the child
should be called. When the child
was bom friends and relatives were
determined to call him Zacariah, after
his father as was the custom of that
period. His mother named him John
but they objected. Zacarias still was
speechless, but he settled the con
troversy by writing, “His name is
In his obedience, his strength of
character, his refusal to be influenced
to depart from what he knew to be
Tight, Zacarias set an example for i
all fathers—fathers of all ages. Too ,
many fathers are unstable and wav
ering in regard to their children,
their conduct and the general conduct
of the home. They surrender to sen
timent and to custom and neglect dis
cipline. Consideration of the spirit,
the courage and the dogged determ
ination of Zacarias will help strength
en such fathers for their duties.

been reading the feature, “Fifty-two
Sermons a Year” in the Waco Mes
senger. And although I was sur
prised, I was not unfamiliar, with
“Selected Sermons” when it arrived as
one of the many presents received last
* • •
This book contains fifty Jour select,
ed sermons of the author, the Rever
end J. H. L. Rhone, well known
throughout Texas. One of these ser
mons appears weekly as a feature in
the Messenger, which, incidentally, is
edited, presumably, by his son, L. J.
• * *
The sermons, as they appear in
print, stripped from all emotionalism
of the pulpit orator, cover a wide
range of thought and appropriately
tie up the subject of religion, Christ
like ways, precepts, etc, with events
and actions of today.
♦ * *
Judging from the sermons, Rev.
Rhone recognizes the imperfections,
weakness, and lack of concentrated
effort of the church as it exists in
this day and time, and very frankly,
logically, and forcibly explains what
the church must do in order to assume
its rightful place as leaders in the
present-day work of bringing peace,
happiness and content to all human
ity, from eut of the wreckage and
chaos that now exists and under which
the people are floundering.
Clifford C. Mitchell.
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 pay 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 country may in reality be a government
of the people, for the people and by the people in whole
and not in part.
(6) The re-establishment of 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,
administering aid and assistance to our widows and
