Condemns Mob Violence—
Washington, D. C., —Sept. 13—Wendell Willkie,
Republican nominee for the Presidency, climaxed his
epoch-making visit to Chicago today with a smashing
attack upon the New Deal Jim Crow created jobs for
Negrcfes, which he said, “must go”; declared his phil
osophy of complete tolerance for all races, and ripped
into New Deal handling of relief as it affects colored
people. “The New Deal,” he said, “has cume to re
gard relief as a sort of Negro reservation where
these people can be kept away from the ordinary eco
nomic life of the country,” and pointed out that a
study has indicated flagrant New Deal discriminat
ion against colored applicants in relief administra
tion. “In! WPA”, he said, “whites have usually rec
eived $16.80 a week, while colored persons doing the
same wdrk received only $10.50.”
More than 15,000 people, on Chicago’s famous
South Side, greeted the nominee, and enthusiastical
ly applauded rlearly every sentence as he drojve home
sledge-hammer condemnations iof New* Deal hypo
cricies and exploitations.

*“You know we talk a great deal of Democracy in
this country. We have more Dembcracy in this
country than in any other Country in the wwld. But

Lincoln, Nebr., Sept, 23— Self
interest should make the State Ad
vertising Commission’s “Buy Ne
braska” campaign even more ef
fective than its national advertis
ing to promote the markets for
Nebraka-grown and Nebraska pro
cessed products, Keith Neville,
Commission chairman, said today.
“There is a tremendous, untapp
ed home market for Nebraska pro
ducts,” Mr. Neville pointed out.
MRS. ROOSEVELT ADDRESSES
PULLMAN PORTERS IN N. Y.
(by William Henry Huff for ANP
The leaves once green
Arfl taking on
A lovely golden hue;
How bright the scene
And rich the tone
W'hen sprinkled With the dew.
‘ This market should be more great
ly intedested and more readily re
sponsive to our advertising appeals
than are those outside Nebraska
whom We are reaching by adver
tisements in national magazinesi
and business journals. It is to the
best interests of every Nebraskan
to give preference to the products
of the state.
‘‘We are not advocating boycott
of products from outside the 'ate
in railing attention of Nebraskms
to the merits of our state’s o-od
ucts and asking them to ‘Buy Ne
braska,’ ’* Mr. Neville explained.
“When our own products are of
equal or better quality and as low
or lower in price, it is just com non
sense for Nebraskans to use hem.
That will build business and i*
ci'ease employment and )>ayrolls :n
Nebraska and bring
measure of prosperity to "V'try
The “Buy Nebraska” campaign,
launched this week with advertise
ments in Nebraska”s newspapers
and announcements over all radio
stations of the gtatef will call at
tention to the unexcelled qualities
of various Nebraska products such
as apples, potatoes, canned fruits
and vegetables. Nebraska wheat
and bet sugar, which are being ad
vertised nationally, also will be ad
vertised wiithin the state by distrib
uting reprints of the national adv
ertisements to wholesale and re
Nebraska manufactureds, whole
salers and retailers will cooperate
by tying in with the ‘‘Buy Nebras
ka” campaign with their advertis
ing and sales promotion.
