PARABLES OF OUR LORD
(The Marriage Supper)
by Dr. A. G. Bearer
(The Literary Service Bureau)
Text: And five of them were wise and
five were foolish—Matthew 25:2.
Human experience has demonstrat
ed the philosophy of Solomon’s dec
laration, “The fear of the Lord is
the beginning of wisdom.” It means
also, as a concomitant principle, that
to neglect spiritual things is the acme
of folly. This is signified in the use
of the terms wise and foolish, in this
text. Briefly given, the lessons are
Human equality in Divine dealing
—all were invited, both the wise and
the foolish; Danger of negligence—
“They all slumbered and slept”; Lack
of preparation for emeregeneies
they found their lamps going out, and
had no oil with which to replenish
them; Personal responsibility—they
were told “Go and buy for yourself,
lest there be not enough for us and
for you;” Danger of last honr prep
aration—while they went to buy. the
bridegroom came—and passed once,
End of opportunity—“And the door
Since the most earnest pleading
and the most insistent and persistent
explainations will not avail when
once the end of opportunity for salva
tion has come, the only insurance or
assurance against the fate of the fool
ish virgins is wisdom which prompts
to make full and ample preparation.

THE NEBRASKA LEGISLATURE
by 0. J. BURCKHARDT
The Legislature is steadily grind
ing along with many perplexing’ pro
blems yet in front of them to be solv
ed. The famous Newbaurer license
Bill which was relifted in the House
was approved by the senate and was
signed by the Governor. It carries
with it an emergency clause that will
enable the thousands of people who
are waiting and watching the situa
tion to get their license for all cars
from 2800 down for $3.00 and above
2800 for $5.00 and all who have al
ready bought their licenses will be
refunded their money paid above the
There is now an important bill be

The Legislature will have its hands
full this week in trying to carry out
the administrative pledges, the code
law repeal and repeal of the intang

tax are among the matters hanging
fire in the upper and lower house this
week. These matters must be settled
before the work of the big budget
bills are taken up looking to the end
of the session.

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.
t (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.
7 (2) Our pro-rata of employment for the patronage

the street car company, the Nebraska Power Company’

s 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 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
(9) To encourage the erection of a one hundred
thousand dollar Young Men’s Christian Association
Building near 24th and Lake Streets.

(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.
