HI FOLKS! The AH Seeing
Eye is here again this week to foc
us your attention on a few incid

the past week. These are no op
tical illusions. I hope you are en
joying this column. It isn’t to
drag anyone, but it is to create a
musement and enjoyment. I have
received several compliments about
this column although the people
that complimented the column did
not know the ‘‘Cyclops” was in

Who was the girl that called
the Tuxedo Thursday night and
asked to talk to anybody. How
ever she jived several boys down
th(ere that she didn’t even know.
I won’t divulge her name in this
column, but girls let’s not call the
Tuxedo unless we have a definite
reason or a certain person to talk
to. Let the boys have some peace
once in a wdiile. Do you mind
boys if we girls call there?
As I sat in the Drug store Sun
day —A certain Chick stepped :n
as she stepped in some girls who
were sitting in a booth began to
make fun of this Chick. Girls
please don’t be such critics be
cause very few girls can afford to
make fun of someone else. I am
sure not any of you would like to
have someone make fun of you,—
so please be considerate of others
and just offer constructive critic
ism if necessary. If you don't I
will be forced to write your nam
es in this column and let every
one know Who Omaha’s critics are.

Chauncey Barnette was all drap

Next week there will be a gnand
and glorious new attraction in this
column. I am sure everyone will
be interested. Did you know that
among Omaha’s Negroes we have
some boys and girls who resemble
actors and actresses in Hollywood
Be sure and read this column to
find out who these people are and
who they resemble and also the
point of resemblance.

This Week In Religion
BY ROBT. L. MOODY
Every institution or system of
knowledge and experience has
some source of authority. Each
branch of science has its found
ation. It is naive to think that
theology would not have reliable
authority. But there are those to
' day who doubt this fact without
careful study and open minds.
The Sunday school lesson for
the week deals with the Holy Spir
it’s guidance in the writing of the
New Testament. Anyone ■who
will consider the writings of the
Bible, especially the New Testa
ment, can see that man, unaided,
would not have written the Bible.
The gospel Is not man’s inven
tion. The very character of
gospel is wholly opposed to the
drift of human pendencies. Its
supreme aim is the tranformatiun
of human nature. It runs con
trary to the whole course of hu
man life and surpasses all the ef
forts of human ingenuity. It
reveals God’s plan of salvation and
His way of life men. We may be
very positive that “all scripture is 1
given by the inspiration of God.”
Just as we accept the Constitution
of the United States as the foun
dation lawf of our land, so the Bible
is the foundation and authority
for all that is truly Christian.
