Last week you became acquaint,
ed with We of "Tomorrow’s World"
This week we become closer relat
ed to you
We met last Thursday. May 1‘0, at
the Urban League. The meeting
was grand Our enrollment of boys
and girls is growing each week
The new members that joined last
Thursday were: Gilda Thomas, lino
gene Ferry. Betty Stewart. Mary
Carter and Harold Johnson.
The project the Club is working
on now is trying to obtain a suitable
building so that we could raise
enough money to properly furnish
it with the facilities for a gym for
the younger boys today For at a
pervious meeting, Donald Davis, a
member gave us a talk, that every
parent of Omaha should have heard
The title was “No Place to Play.”
A copy of that speech will soon be
put under our column
A stage show will be given by
the Club June 7, 1»45 at the Urban
League to secure money for the fur,
nishing of this gym We need the
public's help in the task we are a
bout to undertake for only with
your help can we be successful
The Negro today is faced with a
serious problem Will the Coming
Peace include him?, and—Are our
boys and girls fighting in vain?
Today there are 750,000 Negro
men and women in the armed forc
es Our hearts are grieved every
time we see a Colored boy or girl
in the uniform of a country that
doesn’t appreciate them
And how our hearts bleed when
we read letters from Negro boys in
southern camps and talk to Negro
soldiers of the abused treatment
they are receiving daily. We of
“Tomorrow’s World” know we must
achieve a successful victory so our
boys won’t have to come back to the
same America they left. Recently
a letter was received by me from a
boy stationed in Camp Polk. La A
little of the letter follows

I know the odds are against you. ..
Your struggle will be long and
But drive on, Blackboy, you'll
make it.
If your trust is in the Lord 1
You’ll meet many oppositions;
To retard you in your way,
But just keep on driving, bey—
You’ll reach your goal some day.
It won't be a downhill journey,
There will be many mountains to

But drive on and take your time.
Yes, yo umay have to rest for a.

to bear
But don’t get discouraged, don’t

Remember that Jesus is there!

“The other day I heard one of
our riders say ‘fare-fumblers’
caused him to be late on the
job. And he was right. ‘Fare
fumblers’ often cause need
less delay.”
A few seconds lost at each stop
soon make cars and busses
minutes late. Please do what
you can to help . . . always
have your fare ready before

• Travel more from 10

• Move back in cars.

we kept things on a friendly basis
but when he wanted to kiss me
goodnight. I thought we had
known each other long enough and
allowed him to. The next day 1 re
ceived a note from him saying he
was sorry. He knew he shoudn't
kiss me but wanted to so much
Since then he's wanted to kiss me
every night. Our parents are the
best of friends and we are thrown
together quite often. Now do you
think- he likes me and is waiting
for me to grow up or passing off
Ans: He seeks you out imrned
iatey upon his arrival home and
that’s proof enough that you inter
est him more than anyone else
This interest he shows in you should
not be confused with love but is
more or less a mutual liking be
tween two attractive young people
However, it might develop into
something more serious and lasting
in time. As for the
a little conservative and stingy
with your caresses for anything
given too freely decreases in value
Don’t practice it too frequently.
C. X.—I am a married woman in
love with a married man. He says
he loves me. I have reason to be
lieve he is having an affair with an
older woman and I am so unhappy
as we quarrel most of the time. We
have been going together sixteen
>;ears. I’ll do what you say is best.
Ans: You have no priority on
his heart and there is absolutely
nothing that yo ucan do about his
adventures. His actions are his
wife’s concern and not yours at all.
You two have been friends for a
number of years and it may be dif
ficult for you to break away from
him but that is the only fair and
honorable way out As long as
you persist on carrying on this af
fair you will never derive the hap
piness from your marriage that is
justly due you Give your husband
a chance to make you happy.
E. C. W.—I always write you
when I need help. I am making my
plans to get a lunch stand and be
gin serving meals. Do you think
that I will succeed along this line'.’
Ans; WGth the experience that
you have had previously, you
should do very well in a business of
this kind The type food you plan
to serve will not be affected too
much by the present rationing j
There certainly is a demand for eat
ing places in your section.
Li. B L..—I want to tell you a
bout my annoying problem. I am
1 and my boy friend is 23. A boy
of 19 was coming to see me before
I met the older boy. I didn’t tell
him about his coming I told the
younger boy not to come anymore
as I loved the older boy dearly.
I met the younger boy one day and
while talking, the other fellow came
up in his car and now he wants to
suit because he says I’ve been do
ing this all along behind his back
I really love him so what must I
do to prove to him that I really love
him and not the other young fel
Ans: Your friend has no right to
monopolize all of your time when
you are not engaged This spurt
of authority is just plain jealousy
Sometimes it takes a little compet
ition to make a fellow open his eyes
and appreciate what he has at his
finger tips, -^on't let his actions
offend you because if he is serious
and wants to mean anything in your
life, he will not let the above epi
sode come permanently betwreen
you two. A girl should be friendly
and cordial to all the young people
if she is to remain popular.
