(From he Omaha World Ilearld—Monday, May 14, 1934)
Wednesday night near Los Angelts two masked men
kidnapped from his estate William F. Gettle, a wealthy
til man.As they carried him off they answered a friend’s
remonsrance with the snarl: “No soft stuff. We’re here
here for business. This is kidnapping.”
This incident reminds us of invetably of the kidnap
ing in California last vear of Brooke Hart, of his murder,
and of the lyching at San Jose of Hart’s abductors, to
gether with Governor Rolph’s comment: “This is the best
ldSison that California has ever given the country- We
■how the nation that this state is not going to tolerate
Governor Rolph thus had condoned one of the great
est crimes against society, a crime greater even than kid
napping—lynch law. The truth is now brought home to
Him that any concession to violence, no matter by what
pretext, breeds more wiolence. The war upon kidnappers
ivas hurt, rather than helped, by the San Jose lynching.
California now gives that lesson to the nation. One hopes
Governor Rolph has learned it at last.

“If any man will come after me, let him deiny himself.”
* Matt. 16:24. These words, spoken by Jesus himself,
do not mean occasional acts of self-denial, temporary fasts

Unless this is done no Christian can adopt the maxim;
“Take care of Number One,” unless he has made Christ

“Safety First” may be a very good motto if only we
define ‘safety’ alright. Whose safety are we

Washington —(CNS)— The recent
National Conference on Fundament
al Problems n the Education of Ne
groes meeting here last week was told
by President Roosevelt that: “As
yet all too small a percentage of the
Negro children of our country, especi
ally in its rural sections, enjoys ade
quate or equtable facilitie for the
education which is America’s goal
for every child.” And that “We have
neither schools enough properly to
accomodate the chldren who should
be in attendance, nor educational offer
ngs of the quality and variety adapted
to their needs.”
At the same time Dr. George J.
Ryan, president of the Board of Ed
ucation, in New Yory City, told a
group of educators that: “Unless the
school syptem is capable of preparing
young people foj. the leisure of tomor
row, as well as for the vocation, the
country will pay for the neglect ten
fold and over in crime, debility and
hitman waste.”
The educators met to begin a move
ment to prepre the damage of the de
pression in schools in the United State
Dr- Ryan said:
“You can patiently wait for nation
al most every field, but you dare not
in lmost every field, but you dare not
permit millions of school children to
grow up either physically or mentally
“Nothing offered in later years can
fill the void caused by malnutrition
of mind or body during the tender
formative years of the growing child
“For the best interests of humanity
the backward march of education must
be halted- Our Nation can survive
only so long as we are true to the basic
ideals of education. We can not be
loyal to our nation if we suffer our
schools to be detroyed any further ”
Dr. Harold G- Campbell, superin
tendent of schools, said educators
have been “shocked to witness the
enormous toll that education has had
to pay on the battle fields of the pre
sent economic depression.”
“The heroism of the American
teacher in their efforts to save ed
ucation from tho horrors of this ec
onomic war can never be fully record
ed” Dr- Campbell concluded.
The National Conference on Funda
mental Problems in the Education of
Negroes set forth the following as
“Immediate National Objectives and
Ideals”—to be based on the principle
of the single standard in education
TION—schools and colleges available
and accesible fr all Negro children,

of profesional growth and leadership
in recognition of their outstanding
importance in the education of Negro
children and in the leadership of
Negro life; and the acceptance of. the
responsibility by all teachers of Negro
youth to teach the fundamental princi
pies and issues underlying our econom
ic and social order.
Adequate financial support for all
schools for Negro children equitably

there can be but one standard of ade

Vocational Agriculture Boys
Get Production Loans
Washington—(CNS—Boys enrolled
in vocational agriculture courses in
5,300 rural high schools in the United
States who are still minors may ob
sociations for financing farm projects,
tain loan from production credit as
under a cooperative plan worked out
by the Farm Credit Administration
and the agrcultural service of the Fed
eral Office of Education.
Under the Smith-Hughes law,
through whch Federal assistances is
extended to vocational education pro
grams in the various States, farm boya
who enroll for vocational agriculture
courses are required to undertake
suprvisd farm practice. To start their
projects, which are conducted on the
home farm under the supervision of
the agricultural teacher, pupils fre
quently find it necessary to have a
flock of chickens, sdme cattle, seeds,
fertilizer, or similar upplies necessary
for the proper handling of these pro
jects- It is to furnish funds for out
lays of thi character that production
credits loan have been arranged.
Production credit associations as or
ganized and charted under the Farm
Credit Act are authorized to make
loans to farmers for general agricul
tural purposes . These associa
tions, however, do not handle loans
for as small amounts as are ordinarily
required by Vocational agriculture stu
dents to finance their school projects
A.dded contract. To overcome these
difficulties, therefore, boys needing
loans may secure them as a group ^ a
chapter of the Future Farmers of
Amerca or a similar organization of
vocational agriculture students- Group
borrowers will organized themselves
into a Student Credit and borrow the
total amount needed, as ane loan,
through an “adult borrower,” who will
give a “master” note for the total a
munt for a period of time ciocide with
the duration of the projects covered.
As collateral for hs master note the
adult borrower will present the indi
vidual notes of each student borrower,
signed by the parent or guardian or
another adult, and endorser by the
adult borrower
To safeguard these production loans
to vocatinnal agriculture students, a
statement setting frth the nature,
prrpose, plan, kind and scope of the
project of each participant, and the
assurance of the supervisor Oj. spon
sor that the conduct of these projects
will be supervised and proceeds of
all sales therefrom remitted to the
production credit association credit
associatin, must be submited with each
loan application.

Addreses 800 at Union Service
The new world trend toward na
tionalism is the most pernicious and
insidious propaganda ever fotered
against the teachings of Jesus Chrisa,
Dr- Jeltz declared before an audience
of 800 persons at a union service at
the Broadway Methodist Church.
“The religion of Jesus is not the
religion of lyncMmad America, Nazi
Germany, soviet Russia or facist
Italy,” he declared “For dress it up
as yon may, natonal class and race
prejudice are left over forms of an
old world isolaton which is only de
stuctive and has no place in the new
wrld of increasing proximities-”
He said that wars for the most part
have been started by people living on
a purely physical plane, abetted by
persons living on a mental plane- He
declared that the task of the Christian
church is tol ift men to the highest,
the spiritual plane

tory cutting off the redominate white
section of the ninth and replacing it
with the heavy Negro populated sec
tions of the tenth district to make the
ninth district, thereby assuring a race
representative to the legislature in the

: from all parts of the state personally
; signed repudiation of mob violence

I went on record also as favoring a
| state anti-lynching lawthea die
Sherriff Hughes of Shreveport for
repulsing recent mob attack on the
; Caddo Parish jail.
The anti-lynching cause was pre
sented by Mrs- Bon Knox, of Shrew
port, state chairman of the Associa
tion of Southern Women for the pre
vents of Lynchii \ Her address was
heard with marked interest and sym
pathy by the assembled officers, and
the Asociation’s anti-lynching program
was endorsed in a resolution from the
floor. Mrs- Knox then presented
for personal signatures the following
“Believing that lynching does not
belong in our American civilization;
that it is within itself a violation of
the law; that it is un-American and
dangerous; we, the undersigned Peace
Officers of the State of Louisana.
' endorse the educational program of the
Association of Women for the Pre
ventin of Lynching.”
One hundred and nine of the as
sembled officers promptly affixed
their signatures, including sheriffs,

porting to the headquarters of the asti
lynching association in Atlanta, she
“The convention was a most inter
esting event for me- Never have I
had such a royal greeting, reception
and response. I feel that the way has
been paved for our women all over the
state to visit their respective sheriffs
adn shall begin at once the effort to
have them do so ”
The Association of Southern Wo
men for the Prevention of Lynching
