About two years ago, Mr. Woods!

SINGAPORE HAS FALLEN
The great British bastion of the
Far East has fallen to the Japan

troops have laid do"Wn their arms.
Over the great fortress which rep
resented the Island Empire of
Britain, now flies the flag of the
Empire of Japan.
Ever since the war began it has
been thus with the British on ev

stood and fought until death, save
in Tobruk, Africa. When will the
British begin to fight and die? Do
they think they can win a war
without fighting and dying?

THREE GREAT AMERICANS
February is the birth month of
three great Americans, George
Washington, Abraham Lincoln and
Frederick Douglas. Washington
was the first fruit of our earlier
civilization, and in truth became
the “Father of His country”. In
later years when it was torn as
under by civil strife, Lincoln led
the fight to save the nation which
Washington had aided so greatly
to establish. And Douglas, the
Negr°, Orator and Statesman
guided Lincoln in his action toward
the liberation of the slaves, and
afterwards, did more than all
others to fix the civil status of the
Negro in American life.
There have been many great
men to grace the American scene,
but no other three of such heroic
and majestic mould.
Reports are appearing in var
ious parts of the country about
employment and they are anything
but encouraging- Employment is
on the increase and the change
from peacetime work to war work
is being blamed for it.
Whatever the cause, we hope
that all persons who wish to work
and who are able to work will be
given work t° do and that; re
gardless of the color of the work
Unless the produce implements
of war for ourselves and our all
ies, planes, ships, tanks, guns and
ammunition by the thousands and
still more thousands, we will be
Work is required for this effort
and wirkers must he started on
The employment situation must
be improved and at once.

know”. Woodrow Wilson.

GIRDS FOR WAR TIMES
Omaha, Nebraska, February 20,
Industrial Nebraska, heeding the
nation’s call for the shifting of
factories from peacetime to war
production, has begun to throw its
weight behind the all out effort to
build the machines, materials and
munitions necessary for the ulti-.
mate defeat of the Axis powers.
This is evidenced by the forma
tion last week of a large war pro
duction "pool” in Omaha ,in which
approximately 100 companies have
thrown together their facilities art
manpower in an effort to speed up
the obtaining of war and navy
It is further evidenced by the or
ganization of other pools through
out Nebraska, including firms at
Lincoln, Beatrice, Hastings and
Fairbury, as well as by individual
plants which already have become
a part of the “arsenal of democ
It has been ispired by the rec
ords of a number of Nebraska
companies already in the convers
ion program, including the Beat
rice Steel Tank Manufacturmg
Company which late last month
was awarded the Navy’s "E” pen
nant, symbolic of “outstanding per
formance in the production of nav
al ordnance material.”
Art Walker, state director, said
approximately 90 percent of the
state’s manufacturers have made
contact with the War Production
Board’s contract distribution bran
ch office here in interest of prod
ucing war materials.
Yet, explained Walker, industr
ial Nebraska is just getting start
“There is a great deal still to be
done before we get into full war
production,” asserted Walker. “We
cannot paint an optimistic picture
at this time.
“I feel certain, however, that the
manufacturers here know that
Hitler and the Japs are not wait
ing for us to catch up with them.
Time is not waiting. I know the
Nebraska manufacturers are go
ing to do everything possible to
produce the weapons needed in the
prosecution of the war.
"They know that the lives of
millions of Americans and the out
come of the war itself depends up
on the speed with which additional
factories are shifted to war work”
The United States and her all
ies, it has been pointed out by au
thorities, must-out produce the
Axis powers, 2 1-2 to 1 ,in order to
overtake the enemy and go on to

SOUTHERN AI RES COMING
When the Southernaires come to
this city March 27th at the City
Auditorium local concert-goers
will be prvilegede to hear a group
that is ranked among the great
est vocal ensembles heard today
over the radio or on the concert!
As their name implies these col
ored singers are true sons of the
South, singing the melodies of
their native soil with an artistry
that has seldom been equalled.
With nearly two thousand songs!
in their repertoire their programs
are full of variety. Their reper
toire covers three centuries of Ne-t
gro music—including African
chants, spirituals, slave songs,
popular Negro songs of contemp
orary time- They are also able
interpreters of other kinds of vocal
music, presenting classics and
ballads as effectively as they do
songs of their own race.
First winning widespread pop
ularity through their broadcasts
over the networks of the National
Broadcasting Company, the Sou-t
thernaires finally responded to ur
gent demands that they make per
sonal appearances on the concert
stage. Here their success has mat
ched that which they won on the

Chicago, Feb. 18 (ANP)—The
present lineup for a Chicago Her

uled from March 7 to 11 at the In
ternational amphitheatre here sees
two former championship teams,
the New York Renaissance and
the Harlem Globe Trotters ent
ered against the Detroit Eagles,
1941 defendinf champions. The
i sensational Rens won the title in
1939 only to have it wrested from
them in 1940 by the Harlem Globe
Trotters, who subsequently los- to
Cage fans who saw the exhibit
ion given by the Rens in the All
Star basketball co-feature game
last November are of the opinion
that the team wall take the 1942
championship title. Their ability
to do almost anything, except
make the ball talk, will be called
upon in this year’s tilt to take the
title for the second time.
Last year the Rens lost the
championship meet t° the Detroit.
Eagles in a one-pointer game. ln
9-10, thi / were eliminated by a
similar slim margin by the Harl

Restless—We have four children
and we are renting one room and
kitchen. Of course I realize the
war is on and must be satisfied
but I have two places in mind to
want to buy. One is a house with
two rooms, the other is a spot of
ground. Please help us by telling
us whether to buy or not? I have
some private questions too.
Ans: The war being on is all
the more reason to want a plot of
ground to farm. Rent the proper
ty if you don’t feel you can uuy
and stay right where you are un
til you see your way clear to go
ahead with your plans. Your hus
band has regular work and you
two are able to save a little each
month-you are right in deciding
to accomplish something worth
while, as well as wanting a perm
anent home. Send a quarter for
my new Astrology Reading if you
desire a private reply.
M. M. W.—I’m writing you con
cerning a man I met eight yeara
ago. We have been going toget
her the whole eight years so on
Dec. 5th he asked me to marry him
so I accpeted and he goes and get
the license and brings them and
shows them to me and leaves to go
home to come for me on the 6th
so we could marry. I haven’t seen
him since. Should I continue to
wait on for him?
Ans: The old boy took "cold
feet” and backed out....he does
not want to marry. There’s no
need in the world of your sitting
there at home waiting for his re
turn-if he had intended to come
back.... don’t you think he would
have written a card or sent word
of some kind? Get back into cir
culation and find you another beau
but don’t be fool enough to spend
eight years courting another man.

C. H. B.—Should I try to make
a home for my sister in the Spring
I am undecided as to what to do.
Ans: Just as soon as you arc
financially able to help your sister
... .take her into your home. She
is down and out, needs medical
attention, and most of all she
needs the companionship and love
that you, her sister, can offer he”.
You know darn well she would do
the same for you if it ever became

and have been 2 years. We have
wanted to get married, but don’t
have the money to get the neces
sary things we would need, he is
working and can’t save money.
He says he is tired of waiting to
get married. Please tell me what;
Ans: It’s mighty hard to marry
when there isn’t any money to buy
furniture, or to rent a furnished
place-if he can’t save the mon
ey to buy furniture or to rent a
furnished place.... if he can’t
save the money to begin house
keeping on right now while he is
single, how in the world does he
think it can be done after you two
are married. Both of you talk
this thing over again. Plan to
set aside a part (one fourth if pos
sible) of your salary each week
and put it in the bank for this
purpose. Do this for two months
and see if you can’t save enough
to start housekeeping. If it can’t
be done. .. .then you had better

it may be the best idea to give
your notice and make a change.
I too think you will be able to get
good employment in the south aud
