After five days of the past Street

owners got a wonderful btreak, mid
some were too much dumb to take
advantage of the situation. Immediate
ly after the streets cars were put back
in service, I Interviewed some of the
Ride for 10c drivers, and was told that
some made from 40c to $40.00. Some
were able to buy new tires, tanks full
of gas, and some of those that didn't
try have no spare tire or their cap
acity of one gallon of gas, unless ai
friend cornea along for a joy ride, anil i
donates the one gallon for a ride
around the block. One said, my tires
won’t stand a trip to either of the
parks. He should have been like the
ones who took advantage of past
situation. He may not have a struggle
buggy when there is another street
car strike. They don't happen often.

j H. H. Harper’s active campaign
i has resulted in a general sentiment
\ In favor of his election. H. H.
' B 'per has an outstanding record
' as a private citizen. He suggested
National Housing legislation two
years ago and followed it through
to victery. He saw his ideas be
come part of a great National Pro
gram. The bill that h6 sponsored,
the National Housing Act has been
■aid by the press through out the
country, to be the greatest piece
at legislation since Roosevelt’s
w.- —— ~ —■ •
/..lection. It has been estimated by'
i newspapers throughout the coun-j
; try that this bill would create work l
| for five million men and women.
H. H. Harper is to be commended
for his originality and his untiring
efforts to ca> ry through a program
once started.
H. H. Harper started his cam
paign for a Housing Program in
Omaha. Making some two hundred
talks creating public sentiment in
faver of this program. Men came
from Kansas City, Des Moines,
and other cities to consult with
him about his Private Works or
Housing program more than two
years ago.
He carried on an active cam-j
paign, writing the President, Sen
ators, Congressmen and heads of;
Civic Orgariizations.
February 1933 — The President
elect referred his suggestions to
the Treasury Dept. Even’ letter in
answer to his suggestions was fav
orable.
April S, 1933—World-Herald pub
lished statement by H. H. Harper.!
“An extensive rehabilitation pro- !
gram of the residential and busi-1
ness district of our cities, together
with the .ret lbilitation of our op-:
erating equipment can be organ
ized on a sufficient scale to put
our idle men to work.”
May 9, 1933—Edward R. Burke,
answering a letter from Mr. Har
per said, "I have read with a great
deal of interest your proposal in
reference to a Private Works pro
jram. You have put your finger'
ipon a matter of vital importance.
Any .e I can be of assistance to
fou, ... me hear from you.”
This is a sample of the many let
ters that came back showing the
willingness of congressmen and
ither leaders to cooperate with
Mr. Harper. He has cooperated
with the President and the admin
stration and will cooperate if nom
inated and elected.
April 20, 1934—As the program
began to take final form, the as
siciated press reports were earned
throughout the country indicating
that the bill might not include the
financing of new construction.
April 20, 1934 — Quoting from
Associated Press report from the
Washington Star, “Administration
orders were out today for a new
vehicle to use on the road to re
covery. The projected machine
makes - i 1 a b 1 e as much as
51,500 i lump sums of from
5200 D for the renovization
of £ . i.oraes throughout the
nation.'
“Other plans delayed. The con
ference yesterday also decided to
defer until next session of con
gress laige expenditn.es of gov
ernment funds to stimulate actual
new building and erection of large
housing units in slum areas.”
Mr. Harper, immediately wired
the President urging the broaden
ing of the Housing Bid to include
the financing of new construction.
In answer to his telegram, he re
ceived the following:
April 23. 1934, the Attorney!
drafting the bill for the President,]
Horrace Russell, wrote Mr. Harper
as follows, ‘‘I have been asked to I
reply to your telegram of the 18th
to the President. This question of
housing is being studied most care
fully by a committee under the
direction of the President and it is
hoped that a program can be de
veloped to accomplish the pur
poses which you have in mind. The
most careful consideration is being
given your suggestion.”
April 25th, 1921 — The Omaha
Bee-News said, ‘‘H. H. Harper,
founder of the New Day League
which undertook a rehabilitation
campaign in Omaha a year ago, is
in Washington seeking to have the
government’s home renovizing pro
gram broadened so as to include
home replacement a3 well.
H. H. Harper did get results.
The bill when finally passed pro
vided for the financing of new con
struction. This was the important
and vital part of the bill that had
to do with creating employment
in the builders traae and capital
good3 industry. He is to be con
gratulated for hi3 efforts as a pri
vate citizen to secure legislation to
create employment. He stayed in
Washington two months conferring
with Congressmen, Senators, busi
jness men and heads of govern
mental departments. While there,
he wrote to organizations in 750
cities urging their interest in the
j measure.
April 19, 1984—Hugh S. Johnson
iwrpta lCr, Harper, "I agree with
everything you say.” This is only'
a sample of the hundreds of letters'
received by Mr. Harper. We will'
quote here from a Georgia paper;
as a sample of what some of the;
Eastern papers had to say of Mr.
Harper in Washington.
May 24, 193 4—The Bullock Times
and Statesboro News, Statesboro,!
Ga., says. “The first outline of the
bill provided only for repairs, but
in its final draft included new con
struction as well. For more than a
year a very strong organization in'
Nebraska, the “Comhusker” state,!
headed by H. H. Harper of Omaha,!
has urged the inclusion of the,
“construction” clause. As a liaisioni
committee of one, Mr. Harper has:
been in Washington for several
weeks seeking to iron out any dif
ferences of opinion that might
exist in this one particular between
those drafting the bill and the pro
ponents thereof. Congressman Ed
ward R. Burke, now a candidate
for the Senate, and other inter
ested parties also fought hard for
the insertion of this section."
June 15, 1934—The North Oma
ha Booster 3c.il “Mr Ha,-per bas
devoted a larg* part cf his time
for the part two veers studying
National plan* to create employ
ment.”

says, "H. H. Harper has taken on
active interest te Housing legisla
tion for the pest two years and
has given cor.^dsrab'a time and
study to the cubied.'
Among the nary "ettera written
la support cf K tf. ifarpar’a Houi
ing ideas are the following*
Elay 1934—Mayor Roy N. Towl
wrote, “I have known Mr. Harper
for the past 20 years, during which
time he has been active in the Real
Estate and building enterprises of
the city. In my opinion Mr. Harper
is thoroughly competent and an
authority on Housing problems.
May 1934—R. L. Metcalfe wrote,
"Mr. Harper has been in the Real
Estate business here for many
yeara.
If you make inquiry among
those who have known him dur
ing the greater part of his time,
you will find him to be in every
way competent.
May 11, 1034—Eugene O’Sulli
van said, “Mr. Harper’s wide and
varied experience has in my opin
ion gathered a thorough and com
plete knowledge of the Housing
problems which i* not exceeded ty
any other man in the middle west.
