A COURAGEOUS REPRESENTATIVE
Oscar DePriest, the militant representative from
Illinois, though his effort may be futile, is not lacking in
courage to stand up on the floor of Congress and speak
in behalf of justice in this country, and the sanctity of the
American Courts. At its conclusion he introduced his
bill to amend the 14th Amendment to the Constitution in
that Negroes who are not given fair trials in southern
states, be transferred to another where color is not a dis
advantage. Of course this resolution has about as much
chance of passing as that proverbal snowball, but Mr. De
Priest calls attention to gross injustice suffered by a min
ority group, and it will have its effect, though they re
ject his measures, they respect a courageous foeman, who
beards them in their lair.
THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER
There seems to have been a certain amount of mis
understanding of the action of the life insurance industry
and Governor Bryan, in abrogating, for a time, the bor
rowing and cash value privileges of policies.
This was not done to deprive any policyholder of
his rights. Nor was it done because the life insurance
industry was wobbly. It was done in the interest of every
citizen, every property owner, every wage earner, wheth
er or not he owns a life ins’nce policy. It was done to save
< the country from dropping to a new level of depression.
Life insurance has more than adequate resources.
These resources are in the form of government bonds,
mortgages on real estate, securities of our fundamental
and best established industries. Life insurance could turn
them into cash by throwing them on the market—and it
i;-n‘t hard to imagine the result. Panic, more unemploy
ment, more distress—these things wrould inevitably follow.
So Gov. Bryan temporarily suspend the cash
value an borrowing clauses in the contracts. It was a w7isfe
move. The life insurance industry as a w7hole, is sound and
fully capable of meeting its obligations.
And remember that wThile charity is good, jobs and
investments and productive work are essential to create

they would attempt to get all the pol

They are equally guilty as the policy

BOY! BOY! WE’RE OFF
We have employed our attorney to
look out after us if we are arrested
and our attorney is the big “I am”

‘go’ is supposed to have been given to
the policy kings by the -new female
political boss, who is supposed to be
next to the “I am’s”. One policy

as a very close boyhood friend of one
of the new commissioners.
EVERYBODY IS A MILLIONAIRE
In this U. S. we have 120,000.000
men, women and children and con
gress has appropriated $11,648,794
874.93 or there bout. Well, mess that
up in your brains with the 120,000,
000 American citizens and see if you
all aren’t millionaires now. What a
President we have and is he think
ing of the forgotten man?
The forgotten man just can’t lose
now. The Farm inflation bill says
you can’t lose your farm. The Two
Billion Dollar Home Loan Bill says
you can’t lose your home. The Morat
orium Insurance Act says you can’t
lose your insurance. The Legal Money
lender Act puts the value in your
real estate that heretofore, has been
considered only in gold.
The Deposit Guarantee Act says
you can’t lose your cash even if it is
in a bank. And if you’ve got a job you
can’t lose your old lady and of
course, nobody wants the children.
At last, the sanctity of the Amer
ican home is pretty well secured on
the value therein now instead of the
gold on Wall St. What a President
we now have. Where has he been?
God Lord, let him live and enjoy good
health and keep the good work going.
Off The Gold Standard
and again total $6,900,000,000
Well, this looks like we are off the
gold standard and on legal tender
standard. Some five years ago, Sen.
Robert LaFollette of Wisconsin in
troduced a resolution in Congress for
$500,000,000 for a working program.
About three years ago. W. R.
Hearst caught the fever and began
to spread the propaganda. He said
$500,000,000. Somewhere down in
New York state there was a citizen
that just took in and said nothing, he
waited for an opportunity to have his
say and today he has made LaFoll
ette and Hearst look like pikers, by
putting on the statutes of Congress
laws that will permit the flow of $6,
900.000,000 all for the forgotten man,
and incidentally this is just a loan to
the poor working man.
Por Mahatma Ghandi without any
thing to eat but oranges and just a

Washington’s forecast that 4 million
idle men will be put to work by Oct.
ober 1st on the new liquidating public
works program. This means that two
million men will be put to work furn
ishing the food and clothing for these
men to wear an consume. This means
that a million more men will be put
to work furnishing the material for
these men to use.
President Green said there were 12
million men idle now. Roosevelt said
that these were the forgotten men
and if the American public would e
lect him as president and give him
a working Congress that by 1934 he
would give them employment. Presi
dent Green of the Federation of La
bor said we had 12 million; Roosevelt
coming in ahead of his program, put
7 million men to work by October 1st.
Looks like we ought to be able to take
care, in god shape, the unemployed
situation for the winter for if 6 or 7
j million men receive a living wage,
i they in turn, in all possibility, will
employ another million.

PETITION AGAINST BISHOP
HEARD SENT TO BISHOPS’
Newark, N. J. (CNS) A petition
headed “An Appeal for Relief” and
urging the removal of the Rt. Rev.
William H. Heard, bishop of the first
Episcopal district of the AME. church
has been sent to the Bishops’ Council
by a committee of the St. James
AME. Church of this city. The peti
tion declares that Bishop Heard, 83
years of age is “incapable of admin
istering the affairs of the church in
a manner compatible with the dignity
of same nor to the best interests of
the church.” and then goes to item
ize other “irregularities” which in the
opinion of St. James Church render
him unfit to further administer the
affairs of the first district.
Special emphasis is placed on the
mob scenes and physical combats
which have resulted from the major
ity of conferences held by the bishop
this year. One of the most violent of
these mob scenes was enacted in
Bethel Church, New York City, on
May 28, when the official narrowly
escaped serious injury from an in
furiated congregation when he trans
ferred the Rev. E. A. Clark, Bethel
pastor, to the New England Confer
The petition states that “a contin
uance of Bishop Heard’s administra
tion will be disastrous for the entire
district which includes the New York
New Jersey. Philadelphia, New Eng
land, and Delaware Conferences, and
St. James Church in particular.
A long list of “irregularities” charg
ed against the Bishop are set forth in
detail, and prompt action is request
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
«ry 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

I hospital that we may get the best that there is in medical
i science from our doctors whom we know to be nearest us,
j 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
I 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

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

and thus stop the shamful lynching of American citizens.

every child must have a high school education.

scientists and historians to prove that civilization was

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.
