a sign posted in a building annex
ed to the brewery, —No Colored
Trade Solicited—put there by the
people who rented the building at
that time. There was 308 such
signs over the city which was all
removed by the Attorney General.
But you only heard about the one
down at the brewery. Everyone
knows that the Storz brewery have
been kind to our people in a whole
lots of respects. They have spons
ored many sports for our boys and
girls, besides giving employment
to our group which means so much.
The younger generation thank God.
Do not believe in persecution where
there is no evidence of guilt. I no
tice there arc 7 or 8 business places
among our peoples who sell the
brew which is just as good or bet
ter than lots of other brands. The
matter was reported to the Omaha
branch of the NAACP. and was ex
plained thoroughly to that wonder
ful branch and at no time did the
NAACP. advocate or urge a boy
cott just some of our people who
had a selfish desire. So come on
help those who help us!

FIRE SALE KID—
Mr. Spencer Grey the noted man
about town just taken adventage
of those fire sales downtown. New
overcoat, new shoes, new suit, new
hat. Now he's hoping a tire shop
will catch fire also a tavern. Of
course you can’t blame the kid. No
better time to fill that wardrobe,
than now with all those fire sales
goin’ on maybe a Packard dealer
will have a fire sale next Spencer.
Mr. and Mrs. Marvin Hale are
expecting a new addition to the
family in May. Marvin Hale is and
old timer around here—in fact he
spent practically all of his 47 yrs.
here in Omaha. Marvin is now
employed at Lee Washington’s tav
Edward Grom telling his friends
in the H&M he would buy them a
drink but he is broke. The funny
part about the whole thing he was

to hustle a drink.
Some of the Lunceford boys goin’
the locals and what a Jam Session,
there was! The Blue Room was
rocking nnd reeling and the crowd
was so thick even the waitresses
could not bulge. Well we all like
music and when there is music,
there will be crowds —specially if

Real Folks for this week.
Simon Harrold one of the veter
ans of the Chamber of Commerce
staff. Headwaiter in the Dining
room is observing his 27th Anniv
ersary with the organization this
year. Starting as a page boy when
the organization was called the
Commercial Club of Omaha, Simon
has been with the Chamber of Com
merce continuously. He has serv
ed such distinguished guest as
Crown Prince Frederick and Ingrid
of Denmark, President Wilson and
ex-president Hoover. Simon nev
er fails to call in the boys who need
work. Good old Simon.
Martin Thomas, the instructor at
the Center. Yes, 4 bells for this
guy. The way he handles those
kids, teaches them and shows them
the principles of life. Keep up the
good work Mart.
Jasper Holmes the tailor, another
Real Folks calibre. Helped many
a fellow out time and time again.
Lots of times when the call was
made to report for work and tohse
pants just didn’t look right old
Holmes either made them look OK,
or loaned him a pair.
Joseph Lewis, the mortician,—A
Real race man. Jumps at every
chance to help his people. Any
kind of work that he needs done—
Joe just hires himself a Colored
man. 1 have known lots of people
who have worked for Joe. They all
are very anxious to return to work
for him—by that the pay is up to
Duffy, the druggist—Keeps our
people employed for the last ten
years. Mr, Duffy has found out
that our folks can clerk as well as
anyone. By the way, we have a
few graduate pharmacists. May
be sometime you can see fit to hire
one. You have always did your
share. Keep up the good work.
Mr. Thomas Jones of the Jones
and Thomas Liquor house. Anoth
er strictly race man. Always did
his share towards keeping the oth
er fellow. Mr. Jones lets no one
dictate to him or how to run his
business. I mean he has certain
traditions that he adheres to al—
■ ways. Quiet and peace prevails.
Mr. Slyter, the Coal man on 24th
and Lake Sts. Yes another good
Samaritan. During the real cold
snap, I know what he did for three
families who were not situated so
well. Anyway they got the fuel
—another good deed that was well
John Owen, former State senat
or. Well this kid has had his ups
and down and still packs a stiff
punch. John has went out of his
way time and time again to help old
people to secure the things they
needed for their comfort and he
never brags about the hundreds of
favors he has been instrumental in
bringing about for the race. Good
Arlo South. Good old South as
the boys call him. Well that’s
light, good old Southie. Don’t be
for him many a hour would be
wasted. But the minute he sees
you he puts forth untiring effort
for you in the tax office. Yes good
Eugene McGill. For years Mc
Gill has really been tops when it
comes to helping others. A many
Guys have jumped off a frieght
train in South Omaha down on his
luck but McGill always looked after
the fellows the first thing was to
feed the poor unfortunates also
give lodging if he wanted to stay.
Alright if not McGill gives him a
lunch and lets him go on his way.
Some fellows are still in town that
McGill helped 20 years ago. Do
ing fine owning their homes. Got
good jobs thanks to McGill.
.11 ST MEDDLING—

ketball games also saw some real
sportmanship among the boys.
Keep up the spirit kids!
Stopped in H&M. Booths crowd
ed. Seen my good friend Jack Mi
kel with a real beauty. This boy
can pick ’em. Has she a sister?
Says Dutch Smith. Next stop Blue
room (Franklin Red Apple Herm
an) the Bartendar expert when it
comes to mixing a catfish highball
anil a beertartar. A beer tartar is
when you put the foam on the bot
tom of the glass.
Well the gators and the cats real
ly knocked themselves out Friday
night a good time was had by all,
but the happiest folks of all were
Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Crumbley—
two home town folks who were glad
to be back to visit old friends and
family. Mrs. Crumbley is the
charming daughter of Mr. Frank
Phillips also the sister of John, Al
ice, Bobbie, Emma, Autrie Dewey.
A small family reunion including
Mr. and Mrs. Cozy Nicholson, Mr.
and Mrs. John Phillips.
Mrs. Raylee Jones, the daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Middleton. Now
Director of that World famous girl
band, the International Sweetheart
of Rythm are now touring the west
coast with the greatest of success.
Mrs. Jones was formerly a teacher
here until her wonderful talent be
came known elsewhere and then she
was beseiged with many an offer
after a careful study Mrs. Jones ac
cepted the leadership of the band
which she now directs and what a
band. One more year and Broad
way. The whole town is hoping
and pulling for the Big Moment
when Broadway beckons. Just one
of the few from Omaha that has
made good. The talent is here.
Just when things begin to get
dull around the hot spots always on
hand that little bundle of joy steps
in. Gunnie Harris. Plenty of life
for those dull parties. Gunnie nev
er fails to sing a song for those
who ask. In short that boy is just
the life of the party. So next time
let’s all give Gunnie a great big
hand. Of course he can’t eat
hands. Well we will give him a
hand untell we can do better. Good
Yes they won a basketball game
first this season (through my time
