FiVto times during the past Jnonth. citizens of color have been insulted,
assaulted and humiliated in the use of the public parks and beaches in this
city. Each time indignant citizens hav> made open protests to such treat
ments, but stil the situation exists. It is high time that some definite con
certed effort be taken by the Negro citizens to demand that protection be
given them in these public supported places of recreation- Such incidents
as have taken place are sewing the seed of interracial hatred and distrust,
and is fanning a flame that may ignite open conflict at any time. Phe dis
graceful race riots in Chicago, Springfield and Tulsa, are unhappy ni mo
ries we hoid where in enforcement of law and order caused ihe city to pay
«a price too dear for their negligence
The law is plain regarding the free use of public places by all citizens j
regardless of race, cr^ d or color. The Attorney General stands back of
the law, k still remains to be seen how far our local authorities will.go.m
carrying oat Ulelr oath of office
In the mean t|me, it is necessary that Negroes demand tfceir constitu- j
tienal rights- Some suggfstions have been made by officials, nr authority, ,
that, seperate accommodations be provided for Negroes- Strange as it
•a -ms, some Negroes have advocated this policy. Omaha needs no sepe
Vate pools, parks or anything else seperate for Negroes; acceptance of one
segregated accommodation will lead to others being forced on the race.
,Tbe only seperatness, which should be shown is where decency, and be
haviour is concerted- This rule should be enforced on persons of a class,
Eut the race should not be. . , , .
Negroes have one effective weapon to fight officials who lack courage to
enforce the law, and that weapon is his vob?. Unfortunately, his memory
has not served him from one election to the otVr. These are critical times
in the life of Negroes, not only as to effect his economic relation* but hih

bears the greater share of the burden—ou$ industries much as they would
like to; have no magic means of conjuring money from air. Every expense
of operation; whether it be materials; labor; rent or taxes; must be includ
ed in the cost of the finished product. The buyer always pays. And to
day with the cost of all forms of government soaring he pays more in tax
es for each dollar he earns than he ever did before.
If these indirect taxes were paid directly, there would bq a howl of an
guish frfl|m one emd of the country to another- Taxpayers in all walks of
life would band together to demand more efficient and less expensive govern
ment- And a similar resuit will follow when the p<|ople learn that indirect
taxes can be as expensive as direct taxefc-even more expensive as heavi

In brief^when the actual facts concerning taxation are known^ there
may be a change from the intolerable conditions of the prsent
According to spokesmen for workers in the coal mines, the billion-dollar
coal industry, which even in these times employs upward of 600,000 men,
is destined to play a minor part in the future industrial life of thenation
if the Federal government’s program for the development of needless
hydro-elecctric projects is continued.
The great government hydro-electric projects firfust inevitably destroy
an enormous market lor coal at existing steam generating stations, and
cause vast unemployment among miners and railroad workers- Also, it
es said that thd output of the government hydro plants will blut an electric
power market already served served far in excess of existing tfemands- As
a result a wider market for the surplus energy will hav« to be sought among
many coal users, thus further displacing use of coal in industry and homes
These objections to the hydro program are important, when government
effort is allegedly directed to providing jobs- Many millions of men are out
of work and now thousands more are threatened with loss of employment.
Every time a man loses his income, it is felt throughout the industrial
structure—his purchasing power is gone, and hd no longer bays the myriad
articles that factories produce.
There is no dearth of electric energy«in any section of this country, and
in most area a fair priced publicly regulated supply is close to twice the
demand. Engineers have said that some of the proposed government
projects are even of doubtful practically—in ease of drouth they would be
rendered useless
CNA.—In all the annuals of base
betrayal there is hardly to be found
a more dastardly deed than the latest
vicious attempt of the Pittsburgh;
Courier and the NAACP. officials to
destroy the defense of the nine in
nocent Scottsboro Boys.
In a foul and slanderous editorial
tfe,* Pittsburgh Courier declares:.
“These ill-fated Negroes might pos
sibly have won a new' trial if it had
not been for the negligence of the
Scottsboro Defense attorneys.”
But these reformist Negro traitors
know that the appeal was filed with
the- statutory 90 days from the date
when judgment was- entered on Dec.
6 in the hand-writing of Judgj Cal
lahan . They know that the upoding
of Knights’ 'motion on this point by
the Alabama Supreme Court was so
patently fraudent'that it has " been
compelled to back water. Moreover,
they know that the defense has suez
ceetfed in defeating all th vile man
uvers of the Alabama lynch officials,
and have forced a stay of ex.cution
for Heywood Patterson and Clarence
But this editorial announces with
ghoulish glee, “They seem to be
doomed. All of the mass meetings
;n all of the capitals of Europe, Asia ■
aDd Africa cannot save them now.” ,
This is a repetition of the treacher
ous action of the Pittsburgh Courier
when the appeals of seven of the
Scottsboro Boys were first brought
before the Alabama Supreme Court.
Then the Courier proclaimed; “Th'
boys have sealed their «wn d«om.
We leave them to their poor judg
ment and the ILD. May God have
mercy on their sou’s.” Now they re
peat the same vicious prayer not to
any good, but to the lynch officials
to burn nine innocent Scottsboro
Yet these traitors pretend to be
friend the Scottsboro Boys, whom
they thus deliver over to the lynchers
The same issue of this filthy news- !
paer carries a etter it claims to have
received from Clarence Norrie, thank
ng th Pittsburgh Courier for “all
they have done for me in these try
ing days.” But this letter bears on
its face unmistakable evidence of the
vicious forgery by which it was pro
These forgers would have us believe
that Clarence Norris writes not of
ME. but of HIM. These tools of the
lynch oppressors would like to make
the Negro people believe that Cla
rence Norris accepts and resigns hm
self to his own lynch murder in the
electric chair, and writes glowingly
about it!
' The editor of the Courier, Robert
I Vann, has been bribed with a position
in the Roosevelt government. To
' s'efher with the NAACP. *iisFeaders,
he carries out the d.spicable role of
assistant executioner of the Scotts

Rosina McKnight, 38 year old Negro
mother of ten children, risked her life
on July 19th to save a sick man who
had fallen on the tracks of a B. M. T.
station. The man was James Mc
Kcpn. Overcome with illness, he
pitched forward and fell off the sub
way platform where he lay exposed to
the perils of an approaching train.
Mrs. McKnight jumped after him.
She strained every muscle to pull him
out from between the rails. On the
platform frightened spectators stood
glued, no one thinking of helping.
But Mjs. McKnight heard the fast
aoproaching train without a tremor.
She pulled out her white handker
chief, ran down the tracks and flag
ged the train. Motorman Harry
Seidler, coming to a sudden stop,
helped remove the unconscious Mc
Keen to the platform.
Mis. McKnight had no tihie to be

Congress has adjourned. But the
eyas of the public are still turned on
W ashington. And most of them,
figuratively speaking, are fixed on the
treasury building.
1 he last Congress, like its predecess
or, was extraordinarily expensive. It
appropriated billions, and the budget
which has contained a wide gap be
tween income and outgo for some time
is still further out of joint. In brief
legislative activities of recent months
have done nothing to mitigate the
tax problen—they have made it con
sid. ably more imposng than it was.
It may be taken for granted that
much of the money appropriated will
serve one good purpose or another.
Perhaps none of it wll be wasted.
! That, at this time, is beside the point.
We are reaching the stage where and individuals can no longer
pay heavier tax levies—and where
many relief activities b.cause of their
cost, are hampering not forwarding
Government is precisely like individ Every citizen knows of useful
things he would like to buy. He can’t
buy them b.cause he hasn’t the money
It isn’t a case of what he wants to do
—it is a cease of what he ccan do with
the means at his disposal.
We have lost sight of that individual
ized idear of government spending—
and states, counties and cities have
been even worse offenders than the
federal government itself. It is un
questioned fact that investors are put
ting money into tax free bonds, where
it does nothing for the sake of indus
try, because of the fear that taxation
willcontinue to take most of the pro
fit out of private business. Jobs are
lost, factories a^e closed, homes and
farms are foreclosed, innstrial deve
lopment is brought abrptly to a
halt because of high taxes.
These are facts not hot air. Cost
of gover nment is our greatest and
fastest growing problem.

building employs many millions of
men either directly or through the
purchasing power it creates. Today
no industry is more depressed.
It s hoped that the passage of the
home bulding act by the late Cong "ess
will start machinery for stimulating
building at last. Close to two billion
dollars worth of potential private cap
ital may be put to work. One of the
great banes of the prospecctve builder
—steep interest rate and prumlum
charges on second mortgages—will be
eliminated, according to the plan.

said a short time ago that a saving
of forty one per cent, as compared
with normal costs, is offered the pres

A soundly built, up to date home
is one of the best investments the
average man can make. Modern
methods, materials and plans make a
