TX SPITE of his twenty-eight years.
Doctor Morley looked very young;
iu spite of his youthful appearance
and the fact that he had been prac
ticing medicine only two or three
years, he was one of the busiest and
best-liked doctors in Tilden, One of
the older doctors iiad suggested iu
all seriousness that he raise a mous
tache. That would make him look
older and more professional. Not
such a bad idea, thought Ted llorley,
until he suggested it to Hope Gray, the
girl in spotless white linen who acted
as general assistant in his office.
Hope pursed her lips, looked critical
ly at Ted’s smooth face and said she
liked him better as he was. That set
tled the matter.
The only time that Ted really felt
the need of an appearance of greater
age was when he was acting as chair
man of the committee of student
nurses at the Tilden hospital. The
fact was, he was somewhat in awe
of Miss Drury, the middle-aged ma
tron of the hospital, and on leaving
the hospital after visiting his patients
there, he had a strong impulse to
hurry past her private otlice without
giving her an opportunity to confer
with him.
One summ.: s d.,y i:e was malclng—
or trying to make—one of his has.y
exits from the hospital when Miss
Drury pounced upon him.
‘‘Sorry to detain you,” slie said, ac
cusingly. “But there'* the case of
Miss (‘.ray. It was six months ago
the matter was first presented and we
have done nothing about it. It would
be quite out of order for me to go
ahead with the matter myself. A nev
class will be mining in next month—
we really ought to let her know.”
“To he sure.” said Ted Morley. and
said something about having intended
to get in touch with the girl, ar •’
something more about having been ex
tremely busv.
“Yeu see she applied for appoint
ment in the training school. She has
bo high-school diploma—and in such
cases candidates have to satisfy the
chairman of the committee of their
educational fitness. I would suggest
that you send for the girl and have
her go to your office where you can
make whatever inquiries you want.
She lives somewhere in the country—

“They didn’t think I knew enough—
they wouldn’t have me—”
“But after what I have seen of some
nurses." said Ted. “I’m glad you nev

really did want to go into training?"
“Ever since I was a little girl that
had been my ambition." said Hope.

“Because then I would understand

x believe it lies entirely in your power to remove
some of the undeserved, in just, unchristian and humiliat
ing resti ictions which have been placed upon vour eco
nomic, political and cultural life, here in Omaha as ev
erywhere m the United States.
I . .1 wil1 mention a few of these handicaps and re
1. . Coioi ed citizens are too often passed over in
the appointment of the working staff of the different
departments of City and County government.
2. Local shops and stores who receive a large pro
portion of their trade often fail to return the favor bv
hiring a fair proportion of colored clerks. y
3. Public Utilities like the Gas, Light, Water
Telephone, Street Car Service do not give to our colored
people the share of employment which their patronage
should entitle them to.
4. In at least two of our Public Schools in which
colored children form a large percentage of the pupils
half of the teaching positions including the position 6f
principal should be given by the School Board to Colored
Teachers. There s a super-abundence of the finest of
teaching talent among colored College Graduates.
iha’c some of tnese ijr.fair and exasperating dis
criminations have persisted so long is not due er.t'rdy to
the prejudice of more numerous white citizenship.' A
large percentage of vour white fellow townsmen have
enough of the Christian and human spirit that they are
of one mind with you about the injustice of it all. They
will both respect you and support you if yci: make a de
liberate, intelligent and courageous fight for your rights.
They will however not Uke the initiative. If you Negro
citizens have not got” the guts” (if you will pardon this
homely expression), of getting together and enforcing
your demands they feel you are not worth the victory.
The W hites had to fight and to suffer to gain democracy
and their other civic rights; the women braved ridicule
and perseution until their demands for political equality
were heard: the laborers of Russia overthrew inequality
and tyranny only through a fearless struggle. The trouble
with you colored neighbors is that you did not have to
fight hard enough yourself to become free from slavery
in the days of Lincoln; that is why you are still halfway
in the state of slavery. Your full emancipation waits for
your own concerted and sacrificial efforts.
To win out in your struggle for equality you need
neither brutal force nor money. You need the fearless,
highminded courage of the eternal fidelity to a noble
ideal, of Jesus, and, in modern times, of a Washington,
There ought to be somewhere in your midst a born,
magnetic leader, who could pull you together, and lead
you in persistent united action. He ought to be a man of
such an inspiring personality that most of those who
come in contact with him could not help but respect and
like him, both Colored and Whites. He ought to be not
so much a great orator as a great organizer, who could
develop his people into a well disciplined, enthusiastic
spiritual army; he should have nothing in common with
those vain glorious, bombastic, selfseeking political trick
sters, who pose as leaders at election time. Both White
and Colored have their fill of such.
Under such leadership all colored churches, clubs,
lodges should get busy to put before their members a
program for the recognition of the rights of their race
such as I outlined above. Care should be taken to be mod
erate in their demands so, that they will impress with
their fairness and moderation even the white people.
They should then induce every colored man and
Wom&S in Omaha to sign a simple pledge something as
fellows* ....
‘T express my belief in the aims of the OMAHA
COLORED RIGHTS LEAGUE (or whatever title that
organization may have). I hereby enlist in the League as
a comrade and active member. I shall obey the orders of
the leader of the League as long as it does not conflict
with my conscience or with the laws of our Country. If
for any reason I cannot continue such obedience I shall
resign from the League.”
After two thirds of the colored populations have
identified themselves with the organizations, the leader,
with a carefully selected group of assistants, can begin
the struggle for the realization of the program.
