“Technocracy”, the promised salvation of de

Technocracy is a government by science or skill.
It is the conception of a group of scientists who, under
the leadership of Howard Scott of Columbia University,
for twelve years have been studying the make up, out

suming mecnanism we call the economic sphere.
Mr. Scott is a distinguished engineer and better
known as the technical expert in the Muscle Shoals pro

give every one living within its confines, an abundance.
Also Technocracy says, it is possible to devise a system
which permits every individual to have an abundance—
to live on a better scale, in fact, than anyone now enjoys,
however fortunate may be his circumstances.
In other words the Technocrats say to establish
this new economic system is to abolish the price system.
Do away with money. Instead of money there will be
a currency based on "the annual production of energy.
The question is, can the Technocrats get control
of the machine before the economic structure will come
Technocracy has caught the imagination of the
country and while not yet perfected in its full details, has
defied the attacks of political criticism.
GOVERNOR BRYAN IS RECOVERING
(Central City Republican)
Charles W. Bryan is recovering. This means
mue1 to Nebraska. Never in the history of the common
wealth was there greater need for the guiding hand of
the man who has proven his loyalty to the masses. No
man V as been so criticized by the agencies of special fav
ors. In all Nebraska politics, no other man has so re
; eat- ... emerged above this fire of actual hate with a
smile of satisfaction, always holding safely in his own
hands .'Ome measure for the benefit of the people. Never
has another character been so universally anathema to
some, and so roundly loved and admired by the great
herd of “just folks”.
Charles W. Bryan has been sick. But we sincere
ly hope he will recover, and continue for many years his
undaunted, tireless work in behalf of Nebraska. It is al
most as though the Almighty was taking the present time
to give answer to this great man’s traducers, when the
Associated Press dispatches carry out to the world the |

by Mr. Bryan during his last campaign, which were so
wantonly denied by those who should have known better

average Nebraska citizen. His policies are bound to run

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

hospital that we may get the best that there is in medical
science from our doctors wThom we knowT 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
j 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

thousand dollar Young Men’s Christian Association

(1) Fight for a passage of the Dyer Anti-Lynch Bill
and thus stop the shamful lynching of American citizens.
(2) One of our citizens in the president’s cabinet.
(3) Federal control of the educational system that
every child must have a high school education.
(4) Assist in the furtherance of research by our
scientists and historians to prove that civilization was
first founded in Africa.
(5) Establish a political influence which will bring
about our pro-rata of higher appointments made by our
(6) Stop graft in politics by passing a Federal Law
making election day a legal holiday and compelling every
American citizen of voting age to vote.
(7) Prevent further wars by teaching the so-called
white race that it is high time for them to quit fooling
themselves about white supremacy with only three-tenths
of the world’s population. They must be taught that
color is due to climatic conditions. They must be taught
that seven-tenths of the world’s population is made up of
darker races. They must be taught that the rays of sun
that blaze upon the equator and turn the skin brown do
not affect the power of the brain any more than the cold
ness of icy glaciers affect the brain of the white race;
and that the darker races will not continue to be crushed
by a money mad few. If the Fatherhood of God and the
Brotherhood of Man are not welded into the hearts of this
world’s family now, by teaching the principles laid down
by our Saviour, it will be welded into the hearts of our
children some day soon, on the bloodiest battlefields this
world has ever known.
