The State Assistance Fund, which provides for Old

from the liquor tax.
For the fiscal year 1942-1943. the liquor tax provided
the greatest single source of revenue for the State
Assistance Fund — $2,416,173.20.
From December 1, 1942, to December 1, 1943, the

II, In the November election, the people vote Prohibition back Into
Nebraska, this tax money, paid by the Beverage Industry in the
state would be lost! In addition, a matching amount,
paid by the Federal Government would be lost also, making
a total loss of nearly $4,000,000.00. If this revenue Is lost, tl

form of taxes. It WILL be made up. And YOU WILL HELP PAY IT.

Facts in Rhyme
By Myrtle M. Goodlow
Is there a more pathetic sight
Than an uncaded for child?
Roaming the streets like an animal
From early morning till late at
Helpless children we canot blame.
But those who are mothers only in
Who cruelly neglect their daughters
Just to have what they call, fun!
Fun—for which they shall dearly
Some future day—not far away.
Some mothers go to a beer tavern
and spend the money their husbands
And the fact that makes us weep—
Children at home without a bite to
Without necessary clothing and sho
es for their feet.
These mothers too are having fun—
But the day will surely come.
When they shall weep and reap,
And the price they pay will not be
Many mothers are working today,
And earning good pay.
Some mothers feel their children are
in their way—
They too have a day when the mon
ey they earned,
Will bring a sad return.
In heartaches and memories that
Because they failed to do their best,
For their children’s happiness.
Many mothers have failed on the job
Which should have been—
The greatest in life for them.
To bring up their children,
To be worthwhile women and men!

Put Your Name on the New
NEBRASKA POWER COMPANY
...and make sure to get your electric
range and water heater soon as possible
The Nebraska Power Company Priority Plan gives everyone a fair, "first
come—first served” chance to get a new electric range and water heater
as soon as possible. Your name, on the Priority List, will assure you of the
quickest delivery possible. Don’t put it off—get the facts now! Here’s how
the new Priority Plan works:
IWhen you order an electric range or water heater, or both, from a Nebraska
♦ Power Company representative, your name will be placed on the priority list
for those appliances. You will receive a membership card in the RANGE AND
WATER HEATER PRIORITY CLUB, showing your exact priority number
; for the appliances you want.
2 You designate your own brand preference. When the new electric ranges and
♦ water heaters come in, the distributors will issue them to the dealers and you
may name the dealer you prefer to deliver your appliances. Both the distributor
and the dealer will recognize the priority of the customers who have been
listed in the Electric Range and Water Heater Priority Club.
3 When you sign up, you arrange to make a down payment and regular monthly
♦ payments on the appliances for which you sign. Nebraska Power credits your
account as you make your payments but immediately re-invests your dollars in
War Bonds to help speed Victory, and the day when your range and water
beater can be delivered.
Your dollars will earn 4% interest for you. The Nebraska Power Company will
‘ pay this interest at.the time your electric range or water heater is delivered on
all the money you invest. If you want your money returned to you at any time
before delivery of the merchandise, your money — without interest — will be
returned to you immediately.

The undemocratic, demoralizing
practice of the Jim Crow Train has
had no negative ruling from the Uni
ted States Supreme Court which is
still indecisive on the matter and has
not as yet, touched the root of the
system that supprts the Jim Crow
Train. The Supreme Court in Arth
ur W. Mitchell (Congressman, 111.)
vs. Illinois Central Railroad Co., de
clared that a Negro “Is an American
citizen, free to travel, and he is en
titled to go by this particular route
whenever he chooses to take it and
in that event to have facilities for
his journey without discrimination a
gainst him which the Interstate Com
merce Act forbids” “The denial
of accommodations because of his
race would be an invasion of a funda- .
mental individual right which is guar
anteed against State action by the [
Fourteenth Amendment.” ! '
In this, the celebrated Mitchell case !
decision, the Supreme Court merely 1
condemned unequal accommodations •
while it gave approval to the separ
ate transportation system of the
South. The duplicity and double
talk of the ruling is seen in the fact
that there is no such thing as equal
accommodation as long as it is sep
arate and not the same, in the South
or any other place. Indeed, many
railroads operating in the South, prin
cipally the Atlantic Coast Line, hook
another car onto the regular train
that has facilities equal to that oc
cupied by the whites' and herds the
Negroes into it. The Negroes then
are given equal accommodations, but
not the same.
The Jim Crow Train will not be a
bolished until Negro lawyers, Negro
leaders, and Negro mass pressure be
come united on the objective of des
troying the "equal accommodation"
misnomer and demanding instead, the
same accommodations that are enjoy
ed by anyone else. This means that
the Jim Crow Train problem will be
tackled at its roots, at the germ of
the evil. "Equal” means even the ex
treme of two separate trains running
side by side Oil the same schedule.
The “Same” means the actual prac
tice of the democratic ideal. The
Committee to Abolish Jim Crow
Transportation in the United States
