General services were held
last Sunday. At the morning
services the. pastor preached
from Jeremiah, 2:13 on “Brok
en Cisterns”—“My people have
committed two evils, they have
forsaken me, the fountain of
living waters, and hewed them
out, cisterns, broken cisterns,
that can hold no water.”
At the evening worship the
subject was “Being Baptized
with the Holy Ghost and Fire.”
Matt. 3:11. This does not mean
that the recipient acts unintcl
ligently, but the Holy Spirit
burns out all impure traces of
character and constantly con
sumes these tendencies as they
hre brought to the heart, “for
our God is a consuming fire.’’
ITeh. 12:29. The public is invit
ed to attend our services.

Sunday school was very in
teresting as usual. The program
rendered by Miss Charlesetta
TJpcher was splendid .Rev. O.
W. White of Tabernacle Bap
tist Church in Council Bluffs,
visited with us and gave some
good remarks. We have in
mind the pastor whose condi
tion was reported poor, and
continued to pray.
Rev. G. W. White delivered
the sermon, the text was found
in Isaiah 6.8. Rev. Cooper read
the scripture lesson. John 17.
Rev. W. Hall and Rev. J. TT
Revnolds were among the morn
ing visitors who left some fine
thoughts for the congregation.
BYPU was as always, enjoy
able. As the other auxiliaries of
the church it is progressing
Rev. Reynolds was the speak
er for the evening. He rendered
both the scripture lesson and
sermon. Rev. 4 chapter, Psalm
PP F> respectively.
We aro asking every praying
person in Omaha to remember
Rev. Priee. ,

Rev. L. I*. Bryant, Pastor
L. L. McVay, Itep.
With the closing of the confer
ence year the enthusiasm seems to
; mount. To start the day off right,
the Sunday school was very well
attended. Rev. Bryant brought a
well filled house a most convincing
and complete sermon. His text was
taken from Matthew 7th chapter,
22-23 verses.
The subject of his sermon was
‘‘The necessity of examining your
title." Included in this sermon were
the impressive remarks that “if
your title is all right, your faith
is all right. We want a title that
is unmoved, one that floods cannot
wash away, one that the * flames
cannot destroy, one that can stand
up under any pressure, no matter
how strong it might be. It is very
necessary that one examine his title
daily to she if it will stand the
test of flood and flame. Most of us
ar« in danger of being satisfied
with the standard of the religion
in our community, which standard
is Very low. We ought to examine
our title and if the religion of our
community does not come up to the
Standi >rd of the religion of Jesus
Christ, our title is worthless.” Ac
cording to the response and en
thusiasm in the congregation, this
was one of the best sermons ever
preached by Rev. Bryant. Nothing
v.ys left unsaid and the congrega
tion turned away, their thirsty
siuln, thirsty for the religion of
Jesus Christ, filled to the utmost.
Surely those who attended services
on Sunday gained much by being
Rev. Bryant is still asking that
each individual do his i>art in the
raising of the conference Claime so
that St. John can report a full as
sessment at the Annual Conference.

The Sunday School’s progress is
continuing under the earnest effort
of Supt. J. L. Reagans. The church
services were well attended thru
out Sunday. The pastor brought to
us an inspiring message. The mor
ning text was found in Rom. 11:18,
the evening text, Psalms 102:27.
The ]taster and officers wish to
express their sincere appreciation
to the churches that came te our
aid in our financial effort which
was past the $300.00 mark.

Sandy Campbell, 76 year-old
v>-d warrior, came in the office of
the Omaha Guide accompanied by
Mr. C. C. Galloway. The following
is the story he had bo tell.
Horn a slave, April 19, 1861, in
Whitehall, Carolina, Wayne coun
ty, he became a warrior of the
road early in life. In 1918, while
attempting to catch a B and O
freight train, near Glenwood, Pa.,
his left leg was cut off ami three
toes of the right foot. Undaunted
by this, after a sixteen months
dtay in a Baltimore hospital, he
again answered the “call of the
i Reniiniscenting, Mr, Campbell
(said that in 1882 he worked as a
braketman on the C. Y. and Y. V.,
now the A. C. L., receiving 12Vfce
per hour, the engineer receiving
only 18c per hour.
Mr. Campbell has, according to
his own sitory, traveled all over the
United States and in five Europ
I can countries. He arrived in Oma
ha Tuesday morning on the C. B.
and Q. railroad, and expected to
leave over the same road bhat
Adding a touch of humor to his
story, our road friend advised us
that "a rich democrat hates a poor
democrat and a rich republican
hates a poor republican—all of
which makes a poor fight.
Admiring the articles of cloth
ing given him by Mr. Galloway,
Mr. Campbell said that all around
were to be seen fellows “all dress
ed up, but had no where to go,"
while he would soon be all dressed
up, with plenty of places to go.”
“I can say without fear of con
tradiction that we, as Negroes of
the midwestem region of the Uni
ted States, are now receiving the
greatest opportunity of all time to
particcipate in and to gain for our
selves a worth while position in
politics on a national scale.
*1 feel that this fact can not or
must not be considered a matter of
small significance to a minority
group in a country which is under
a democratic form of government
such as ours. There are many
stresses under which we find our- |
selves toiling, not particularly as
Negroes, but as members of a min
ority group, that can be alleviated
chiefly though intelligent partici
•pation in politics.
"I am convinced that President
Roosevelt is the man for the peo
ple o{ the United States and even
more certain that he will be reel
Through careful cooperation and
coordination of individual and the
various group activities with those
efforts of Aitt’y- Charles F. Davis,
who has been appointed State Dir
ector of the Colored division of the
National Democratic campaign, I
am sure that we can well accom
plish our share of the work.

the kind of a car trailer you would
like to own, and would like to see it
in reality, just inspect the new
tnailer of Mr. and Mrs. W. L. My
ers, 2416 No. 22nd St.
An inspection of this delux
trailer reveals at one end what one
would suppose a studio couch,
which is in reality a double bed.
On either side, at the other end,
one finds a twin bed. The dining
t"ble unfolds between these twin
l>eds, so that the diners may use
t)he beds for chaiiV*.
One sees a center light in the
trailer and wall ligh<fi. Regard
less of where the party is, it is
assures! of lights—the trailer has
its own lighting system. Conceal
ed ironing board, drawers for lin- ,
rtn, kitchen cutlery and utensils,
etc., are a part of this marvelous |
trailer. Dainty curtains adorn the
windows, here is a heaing stove, j
burning either coal or charcoal, a
kitchen sink, a cook stove, running |
wfater, a clothes closet—really to
appreciate this palace trailer in
is entirey, one must see it.

Ford Questions
Political Stand
Of Jesse Owens
(Continued From Page 11
The noted Negro leader paid a
high tribute o the Buckeye Bullet,
warmly praising Owens’ achieve
ments at the Olympics. He ques
tioned, however, whether the 22
year old track star, who will cast
his first presidential vote thus year
was sufficiently conversant with
the issues of he 1936 campaign, the
most potentious since the Civil
War, to warrant his coming out
openly for Landon. In this connec
tion, Ford cited Jesse’s own ad
mission that he was no acquainted
with all the issues of the cam
In an interview at KepuoMcan
eastern headquarters here, Jesse
had told reporters: “He (Iandon)
does not promise a lot of things
but what promises he makes I be
lieve he will keep. I am just an
athlete and I don’t know all the
figures and arguments, but I do
know a sincere man when I read
his record and speeches.”
Displaying a warm regard for
Owens throughout the discussion,
Ford contended that Jesse was un
wittingly doing his race a disser
vice by supporting Iandon. The
Communist candidate backed up his
contentions with caustic references
to Tandon’s record; his support of
racial discrimination at the Uni
versity of Kansas where Iandon
appointees have introduced dis
criminatory practices against Ne
gro students; the Kansas govern
or’s advocacy of $1.08 a week re
lief for a Kansas unemployed fam
ily of five; and his use of troops
last year o defeat a strike of Kan
sas miners for 'better condiions.
One gathered from Ford’s remarks
that he had serious doubts that
Jesse had given careful study to
I .andon’s record.
“Owens was unwise to support
L’andon, whose most notorious
backer, William Randolph Hearst,
has ideas identical with those of
Hitler, who insulted Negroes all
over the world by his treatment of
Owens in Berlin,” Ford asserted.
“Owens” he continued, “made a
splendid record at the Olympics
for himself and his race, but un
knowingly he is doing his people—
my people— a disservice by sup
porting Landpn.”
Hits Jim-Crow in Sports
A former athlete himself, Ford
remarked that he could appreciate
what Jesse has been up against
in sports by reason of jim-crow
practices. He had played semi-pro
fessional baseball himself and
knew of numerous qualified Ne
gro players “who were kept out of
the big leagues because of jim
crow club owners and sport offi
Assailing Landon as a puppet of
the reacionary Hearst-Liberty Lea
gue-Black Legion combination
Ford expressed the ouinion that
Jesse would have done better to
aropt a non-partisan attiude if he
did not want to join with the pro
gressive forces seeking “to keep
Hearst out of the White House.”
He thought Jesse could have done
a great service to his people by
throwing “all his energy and his
word-wide prestige with those pro
gressive forces which are building
a Farmer-Labor party throughout
the countx-y and right in Owens’
home state, Ohio.”
Chicago, Sept. 12—(C)—The ^

xecre^tary of the K. of P.; arrived
