Commerce was Master of Cere
Wlh'le the guests enjoyed 1st
course refre;hrrents, as they sat
around the long table in the cen
ter of the room, Mr. Gilbert made
a short talk and called upon Atty.
Chas. P. Howard, President of the
Des Moines Negro Chamber of
Commerce to discuss Negro bus
iness and bow it can be improv
ed. Atty Howard pointed out that
Negro businesses do not patron
ize each other, and consequently,
other Negroes fail to patronize
their businesses as they should.
Atty. Howard stated that the Ne
gro C. of C. of Des Moines are
planing to put a register, in the
very near future, listing the Ne- i
gro businesses, and place a copy I
in every Negro home in Des'
Moines, in order to acquaint the
Negroes with the Negro business
and what they have to offer. He
stated that the Negro C. of C. of
Des Moines had an attendance of
ten to twenty members who met
every Monday and worked togeth
er advertising Negro business and
exchanging their business proce
Mr, Gilbert called upon our own
Atty. John Adams, Senator, who
spoke at length upon the topic
of the program of the Convention
and in his talk, Senator Adams
mentioned the Fontenelle Apart
ment Additional project and its
value to the people of Omaha. He
said it was his opinion that this
housing project should be extend
ed. Senator Adams spoke of the
employment problems in Omaha.
Ho pointed out that Negroes were
being supplanted by whites in
many of their jobs. He said that
wo^ the Negroes, needed to create
opportunities for our youth. That
wo should encourage our City
Park Commissioner to give us
play grounds more conviently lo
cated for our children. He also
stated that the Negro needs or
ganized efforts to create jobs for
the people and in this way jobs
for the people will be realized.
Senator Adams thought the Des
moines C. of C. had a fine idea in
putting out a register of Negro
businesses. He stated also/ that
Negro badness men need to un
derstand each other and under
stand the white business men as
well and vica versa.
After Senator Adorns’ talk, Mr.
, Gilber mentioned some of the
things that the Negr o C. of C. had)
been able to do in Omaha very re
cently. He mentioned the stand
taken by them in the case of the
family of eleven who were evicted
from their home in South Omaha.
He says the Negro C. of C. were
able to get a place for the family
for a week, until they could try
and find a home. He hopes to get
e noth A stay after the present one
expires if they bave not been
j suitably located. He mentioned
I next, that the Negro C. of C. had
a movement on to secure a mim
eograph machine that would en
able them to place the work and
acheivements of the Negro C. of
C. in the homes of the people of
Omaha. Another acheivement, he
relates, was the employment of
el Negro in the Fairmont Happy
Hollow Ice Sation.
Mr. Gilbert closed his remarks
by offering for open discussion
the questions before the house
which resulted in a round table
talk. After which pictures were
taken and luncheon was served by
tho capable wife of Mr. McGill
