A NEW DAY
For the first time in 12 years the affairs of the
City of Omaha are being administered by a group of men
who aspire to give us a new and better type of City gov
This change should be especially gratifying to
those gallant warriors who have suffered years of perse
cution, losses of business and personal fortunes, due to
their relentless fight for such a government as we now
have promised us. It should also be gratifying to those
who deserted the ranks of the erring rule and helped to
bring about a change. Let us hope that the next three
years v- ill be filled with prosperity, contentment, peace
and happiness for all of the good and upstanding citizens
of Omaha. v
The Omaha Urban League has just completed a
one-week campaign which was designated as Vocational
Opportunity Campaign Week. During this period, the
League sought to emphasize before various groups of
this community, a New Deal for the Negro in Industrial
Relations. It seems quite appropriate that such a slogan
should be used at this time. We have heard much talk
about a New Deal and the Forgotten Man. God knows
that the Negro, who has often been termed as the Forgot
ten Man, needs a New Deal during these depressed times.

(1) We must have our pro-rata of employment in
businesses to which we give our patronage, such as groc

and coal companies, in fact* every concern which we sup
port. We must give our citizens the chance to live res

permitting them to remain economic slaves and enter in
to lives of shame.

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

the efforts put forth by the founders of the organization

and a more thorough understanding of interracial rela

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

Religion, week day as well as Sunday. An attitude to

principle which will guide the destiny of each other’s

that seven-tenths of the world’s population is made up of
darker races. They must be taught that the rays of sun

by a money mad few. If the Fatherhood of God and the
