GRACE BERGER CANDIDATE
FOR COUNTT CIFRK
Miss Grace Berger is one of our
outstanding Candidates, beacuse |
her record as County Clerk and j
Auditor was above reproach. She
has not a .sirgle mark against her
character, ability, honesty or in
Miss Berger did not betray the
trust given her by the Voters of
Ducglas County when in office.
She audited Claims covering pur
chases at Market Prices, tHereby
saving Douglas County Thousands
of Dollars annually. If she had
been County Clerk and Aud^tfltr
for the Past four years, she would
have raised her voice in; protest
against thes® exorbitant purchase
prices, and extravagant expendi
tures by consulting the County
Attorney, and finding a legnl way
to stop such atrocious purchases at
such outrageous prices.
When Miss Berger left the of
fice, the business of Douglas Coun
ty was operated on a cash basis,
as it had been during her incuni
bentcy. Now, with most of the
present County Officials claiming
they made great savings in operat
ing their Departments, the County
has incurred a deficit, and indebt
edness of over $1,000^000. Where j
is the money that was saved?
Records tell the story. Protest
the Finances of Douglas County
by voting for GRACE BERBER,
Candidate for COUNTY CLERK.
She has proved her value to Doug
Berger for County Clerk Club.
Otto Bauman ,
Douglas County is a big busin
ess corporation and every citizen
is a stockholder. Is there any
good reason for these citizen-stock
holders to place their public money
in the hands of a new and untried
1 One of the most important of
fices to bo filled in the forthcom
ing election is that of County
Treasurer, and it behooves voters
to inform themselves of the quali
fications of the candidates aspir
ing for this office.
It would be hard to find a man
(more fitted for this responsible
position than Treasurer Otto Bau
man. Ho was born, reared and
educated in Omaha and hc and the
pioneer family from which he des
vended have paid taxes in Douglas
County for over 75 years. Mr.
Bauman ir. a man of marked abil
ity and stands high in public es
teem. The manner in which he
has administered the affairs of his
office has won widespread approv
al of citizens, regardless of polit
ical party affiliat:ons.
During his term of office, he has
collected and disbursed THREE
QUARTERS OF A BILLION
DOLLARS of taxpayer’s money,
which is e' idence both of his abil
ity and his trustworthiness. To
say (hat Mf. Bauman ha* succeed
ed as Treasurer would be paying
him only a mild compliment. Those
who keep abreast of public affairs
have long since learned that he js
an adept financier.

NEGROES LOST THIRTY
TEACHERS IN OMAHA
PUBLIC SCHOOLS BY
On last school hoard election day
: if nire more Negroes had cast
| their ballot for Mr. Peter Mehren.
! by today in all probabilities, we
would have had at least thirty
' Colored emIM/jyees and teachers
out of the 139 wo are entitled to
and are already paying the salar
ies of either directly or indirectly.
Just think what a mistake nine
registered voters made and what
a loss it was to our youth, who we
are educating every day.
Will we make the same mistake
on Tuesday November 8, Well let
us hope not. At least every mo
ther, and perhaps some of the fa
thers will be loyal to the principles
of equality for which this candi
date stands and ordain themselves
as a committee of one, not only to
vote for Mr. Peter Mehrens but
to draft their n< ifthbors to the
polls nnd have them vote for him
There is no mistake ahout it. if
Peter Mehrens is elected to the
school board on November 8; the
Neftro will ftet their pro-rata of
employment in the entire public
school system of Omaha.
Wo have known Mr. Mehren*
thirty five years. W'e know him
to be a fifthter for justice r* ftard
less of race, color, creed or prev
ious condition of servitude. Peter
M1! hrens will go down fightinft for
you if you will show your loyalty
to him. Tuesday,..November 8, by
voting for him at the polls
We do not feel that we need to
say one word about Mr. R. C.
Prico^ for he is your own. We
know you are going to vote for
him without any coaxing whatev
er. And if you vote at all and
have an ounce of race pride in your
system, you will vote for R. C.
Price °n November the 8. Re
member if you vote for the two a
bovo names, Peter Mehrens and
R. C. Price on the School Board
ticket, it will register to their in
terest equal to six votes.

Skin diseases, just as other dis

any other ailment.
These scars and blemishes how

HOLLAND LEADS TEAM
TO 23 TO fi VICTORY
How dot s an All-American spend
a day? From the start of the game
the big Negro boy, who incidental
ly is studying agriculture so he
“can help his people in farming’’
caught the eye and held it. Even
when Peck and Eichler were tot
ing the ball through the Colum
bia secondary on the way to the
first touchdown you could spot
tho Lion tackle being ridden out
cf the play by Holland thoroughly
Then the second Cornell toueh
! down. There was a drama. Cor
nell’s hall on Columbia’s twenty.
Baker fades back for a pass—Hol
land races out from his end post,
running even with a Lion denfen
der. He gains a step on him, makes
a prodigious leap as the pass,
thrown too far, sails over his head
and just tips it with his oustretch
ed fingers, Incomplete. And what
do you thing the next play is? Ba
ker to Holland again, this time
complete for the score.
On the Cornell kickoof you de
cide to keep your eyes glued on
Holland, instead of the ball, see
just what an All-American per
former does on one particular play.
You watch him race down from the
leftside, slow np momentarily as a
blocker hurtles by hint, then put
on a burst of speed, cut in sharply
and bang down the Columbia re
ceiver. just getting started the
other way, from the rear.
Later in the game it's Colum
bia’s ball on their own nine. Stan
ezck takes the ball and swings
right, in usual formation about
five yards back of scrimmage
line. Before he takes two steps he
is hit around the thighs by a hu
man projectile in a red jersey and
whacked clean back across his own
goal for a safety—two points was
Cornell. That was Holland.
And those end-ai^und plays,
dug out of the, mothballs by Cor
nell to take advantage of Brud’s
versatility. A Cornell back fakes
a run off t'hs^iright tackle, hands
it to a Cornell'Qincsman. who flips
it back tot HMland tearing around
tho other way from his end post.
Brud is taeldowt ’stopped on this
play, an<i scores his quota of
