was a star without a doubt. Little
Miss Eva Mae Brown and Charles
Johnson stole the show, and were a
show by themselves. Those who were
not present do not know what a great
treat they missed. The grown ups put
their work over just like regular
vaudeville performers on a salary.
Hie U'iiture attraction of the whole
show was the great Sam Brown, one
of the World’s leading tap dancers
'•rid what I mean he really went to
town. Bo Jingles Robinson has noth
;ng on this boy Sam. The people are
talking about having the show re
peated. Mr Baker just in from Holly
wood, California after finishing one
of his great pictures there, was a
guest of Sam Brown and played a
few numbers. The most striking of
them all was the one he played-up
side down. He is a marvelous piano
player. Ask those who were there:
Mr and Mrs Percy Johnson, who
sponsored the show worked Ijard with
such short time to put the show over
and are due plenty credit. Father
Daly was well pleased with the show
from beginning to end and has to end
and has been getting plenty comple
ments upon the show from both
rac^s, and wish to thank every one
who helped. Mr and Mrs Carroll

the show greatly. Do not forget Sun

“No Work No Eat”
By Dr. A. G. Bearer
(For The Literary Service Bureau)
Text: If any would not work
neither should he eat.—II Thessalon
ians. 3:10.
Paul announces a bold yet sound
principle of social economic when he
decrees that a fellow who will not
work is not entitled to eat. And any
honest consideration of it will force
the conviction that it is right. It has
several elements as its basis. Let U3
note a few.
1. Divine Decree. To Adam the
first man and the first sinner God
said, “In the sweat of thy brow shall
thou eat bread.” This was that all
men, thereafter, should work for
their own living.
2. Human Necessity. Labor be
came necessary to the physical well
being of man, in his fallen condition,
since the fall affected his body as
well as his soul.
3. Justice and Equity Demand. A
man will live. He must live by his
own labor or the labor of another,
and the latter would be unjust and
inequitable to others.
4. Corollary. For these reasons, a
man who refuses to work ha3 no
right to eat; he has no right to be a
parasite on the body politic. Let all
the laggards read and consider, “If
any would not work neither shoul 1 he

Dear Mayor Towl: j
I am sure at this time you have be

of citizens who have made your posi- I

manifest every consideration regard

There should be no hidden facts or

to prevent manifesting consideration
to others who are entitled, but den

We have always had a representa- j

Mayor Roy N. Towl,
Executive Office,
Omaha, Nebraska
Dear Mayor Towl:
I have communicated with our
former executives on several oc
casions, and can say not one time
was I not impressed with their state
ments, or did I fail to receive a reply
to any letter written to them. A pro
paganda has been spread there is
some of your mail you fail to receive.
I have written you important letters,
and if you have not obtained them,
or through negligence in some way
have failed to respond, I can not ap
preciate same.
There is a certain amount of con
sideration due all citizens by every
public man who is in a position to
give same, are seeking. One true
statement is “when the public in
general gets behind a situation, they
either put it over or destroy it.” It is
through the general public that all
the city positions are obtained,
whether the citizens are recognized
or not after one has been successful.
We are enitled to our pro rata of
employment in all city departments,
but those in a position to give this
consideration, have denied this group
or given employment to others that
should have been given to us, which
is not fair. What consolation, inspira
tion or hopes can a body of people
receive who are constantly denied of
their rights of employments by citi
zens whom they have supported ?
Different codes of the National
Recovery Act as authorized by our
President are now going into effect,
and after so long a silence, at this
time I am wondering what considera
tion in regards to our pro rata of em
ployment you have in mind? We be
lieve by these codes at last they are
daring to form a plan which will
give the weak a chance with the
strong, and the poor a chance with
the rich, and are also hoping it will
mean greater opportunities within.
our city for those who have been the
first to be discharged and the last to
be hired.
I am sure it is realized taking into
consideration citizens, tax payers and
the population of the group, compar
ing the same with others, a fair con
sideration of employment is not giv
en, and as Mayor of our city, we are
asking you to see that employment
to which we are entitled is given.
We do not want to believe you are'
“Robbing Peter to pay Paul,” butj
from all evidence we have been den- i
ied appointments to which we are
entitled, were promised and formerly
have been given.
Perhaps I have misinterpreted you,
but can not understand your silence,
and am still seeking a reply and
through you the consideration of em
ployment we are due; hoping the
game will be given as a matter of
justice if for no other reason.
Thanking you very kindly, I am

Please be assured your letters have

I realize that strictly pro rata em

However, I believe that, if you take

it makes a fairly good showing in

A stranger, unacquainted with our
customs, notes that business is su-s

from labor. Re witnesses thousands

oanncrs waving. Hearing and seeing,
he inquires concerning the occasion,
and he is told, “Why this is Labor
Day!” And he gasps at the paradox.
To such a stranger mu3t b i ex
plained that Labor Day does not
mean what the term signifies, erymo
logically, a day on which to labor,
but a day dedicated to the honor and
the interests of laborers of the nation.
This explained and understood, the
paradox disappears and the matter is
This is as it should be, because of
the unique and all-important role
played by labor in the prosperity of
the nation and the perpetuity of our
civilization. Labor is the basis o’"
which our various national systems
rest. It is the corner stone which
b'nds and secures the parts of the in
dustrial and economic superstructures.
It is the base of the pyramid repre
senting the chiefest accomplishments
of men, in all the ages. It is indis
pensable to the progress, the profit
and the very life of mankind. The
richest man in the world cannot be
independent of labor, and the weak
est laborer is an integral element in
all that makes up the warp and woof
of human progress. Then let us join

as the toilers an saviors of the nation
