HIGH SCHOOL GRADS
Tw# young high school graduates,
it is alleged, up and robbed “Big
Lizz,” her employer last week- They
are m>w being held under $1,5000
bond.... Perhaps, if we had more
constructive clubs and organizations,
this younger generation, that has
caused so much talk, would probably
do something we could be proud of.
... So far the church, the Y. W. C
A- and the Mid City Center are the
only constructive places.
* IK) YOU KNOW THAT
Money used after the barter sys
tem, by the Romans, were ringlets
worn upon the arms, while in other
parts of Asia, large stone cart
wheels, twelve feet in diameter and
three feet thick, were sued as money
.... A man’s wealth was deter
mined by the number of these stones
he had in his front yard. . . -All this
talk of money makes me think of all
the people who owe me .... In
China, people carried 'salt bars as
money.When two people
■would meet on the street, instead of
shaking hands as we do, they would
lick each others salt .. . .So, of
course, the money lost value very
fast.Can you imagine such
means of exchange, today?

B THE OLD HOME
In a recent address, Neman Thom
«s predicted that the next ten years
will see this nation under either So
cialist or Fascist rule.
Mr. Thomas said he abhored the
possibility tut violence and revolution
and urged a peaceful drifting intc
Socialism. If it were possible, he
said, ho would advocate immediate
confiscation of all industry and busi
ness and the vesting of title in the
commonwealth. However, with this
so difficult, he suggested the plan of
“compensation plus taxation” for the
commonwealth to follow in assuming
Mr. Thomas’s opinion seems to be
that our whole industrial, agricul
tural, political and financial system
is a failure. He is opposed to profits
from private ownership of industry.
He said his party, if given power
would strive to socialize banks, rail
roads coal mines, power, and next
would TTionopolize all industry for the
benefit of the commonwealth. Taxes
would be revised—the inheritance tax
ifeing increased—and allowancees
made for farmers to be allowed to
abandon their titles to property with
a guaranty that they could remain on
property and work the farm. Com
monwealth councils would direct the
new enterprise and furnish machine
ry and materials.
It is pretty hard for American
citizens to understand that doctrine.
The United States was established
as the land of freedom and encourage- j
ment of individual initiative and en- j
It is difficult to conceive of an
American farmer, a “freeholder” be
ing ready to turn his land in to the
Government for some allowances that
might be made him, for the privilege
of living on the property and “work
ing the farm” for the commonwealth,
as a “tenant.” Also it is difficult Jo
imagine the American farmer, a free
man, taking his orders from common
wealth councils and having machinery
and materials handed out to him at
will of the council.
At the present time the drive for
socialization is against the big in
dustries, but the fact that the plan
includes the farm and public owner
ship of homes and the direction of
the people by councils which would
be nothing but a ruling class under
a different guise, shows the necessity
for studying this situation carefully
You can’t have a nation half so
cialistic and half individualistic any
more than you can have it half slave
and half free. If industry is so
cialized and its right to private
ownership denied, agriculture will be
socialised as sure as the sun rises
and sets and the old homestead, which
has been the rallying point for fami
ly life and patriotic ideals in Ameri
ca, will be destroyed.

Dear Mr. Galloway: '
The Omaha Chronicle of March 23
published an article saying that it
was rumored that I called the colored
children of the Long School “nig
gers”. Mrs. Alice Holtman, former
member of the school board was with
me at the time and the teachers of
the school present will testify that I
did not use any such offensive term.
The facts of the matter are that I
was complimenting the school on
their singing and said, “You colored
children are endowed y the Creator
with a beautiful voice and I have en
joyed immensely your singing on this
occasion.” I have always been very
friendly to the colored people and
supposed that they were friendly to
me and I cannot understand how the
paper would publish such an article
without first making an investiga
tion. I would be very much pleased
if you would correct this statement
as I feel very keenly the huminiation
of being made to say what I did not
say nor never have said.
Very truly yours.

Manager of Dining Room
March 28th, 1934
Mr. C- C- Galloway, Proprietor,
Mr. Simon Harrold requests it and
I take real pleasure in writing you
with reference to the work of Mr
Harrold and the waiters he employed
for us at the Chamber of Commerce
Dining Room. We feel that these
men gave the greatest satisfaction
possible to the cutomers with whom
they had to deal- They were always
attentive, eager to please and never
was there an occasion when they
were not ready to help.
Mr- Harrold especially handled the
most trying situations with the very
least disturbance to those concerned,
that was possible- He managed the
front end of the Dining Room in a
most capable manner with practical
ly no direction from us.
We are sorry indeed to find the
situation such, due to our giving up
the Dining Room, that we are unable
to employ Mil- Harrold and the wait
ers under him, but were we to find
ourselves in such a situation again,
we would certainly avail ourselves of
the opportunity to re-employ these

Dear Mr. Allen:
Your letter of March 12 enclosing
a comdunication from C. C. Gallo

the Anti-Lynching Bill.
I always have been and still am in
favor of law and order and am of
the opinion that the ends of justice
are best served by due process of

groing well that i thad never discrimi
nated against union labor and so
could not be expected to discriminate
against non-union labor. The Auto
mobile Chamber became audible
again, saying that it would not
recognize the A. F. of L.
The Administration, which has a
strong voice in deciding such mat
ters, is left in a tough position. The
automobile industry is the best ex
ample of better business—it can’t
afford to have it disrupted. On the
other hand it is sympathetic to un sn
labor. There will be many weeks of
balking, threatening and plain ordi
nary bluffing on all sides before the
problem is definitely settled.
