C. C. Galloway
Candidate for State Senator
from the Fifth District
The Prime Purpose of Every
EFFORT is RESVLTS...

The prime purpose of every I
Leadership, no matter how vo-.
cal, is of no benefit unless it pro- I
duces the Desired Results.
Statesmanship is Salesmanship
and I have worked at both for al
most 50 "ears in Oma’ia. I have
learned through experience that
before you can sell a proposition,
you must seek and find the cause
of the objections offered by the I
oppositionist. Then use .whatever
tact, diplomacy and persuasion
necesarry to win the other parties
ova*- to vour side.
The Negro elected to the State
Senate from the 5th District will
represent a minority of one in a
legislature body of fortk-three no
matter hou much legislation he
briners up: his whole success or
failure will depen1? upon his abil
ity and willingness to win the
other side to his way of thinking.
METHOD OF PROCEDURE
I promise to use my nearly 50
years of political experience and
friendship with men in both poli
tical parties towards enacting such
legislation as will make our Com
munity a more prosperous, more
healthful, more beautiful and
neighborly place in which to live.
THE FEPC IN NEBRASKA
The number One item in my
platform ic the Fair Employment
Practise Committee in Nebraska,
j < ve this legislation can, with'
the proper handling, b put through
the Nebraska Senate and enacted
into a law. However, legislation
and Court Orders alone do not al
ways solve our problems comple
tely. 1 promise to join hands,
wholeheartedly, with civic organi
zations in an educational and good
will campaign designated to cre
ate a favorable reaction and re
sponse from both the Employers
and Employees affected by this
legislation. We must endeavor, in
a diplomatic way, to un-prejudice
both the white and black man in
order to create a lasting bond of
friendship between our groups.
Men like Bilbo have struggled
for years to inflame the white
race against the black. And many
of our own leaders unwittingly or
not, have, in outbursts of emoti
onal oratory tried to instill hate,
fear, and distrust into the hearts
of our people against the white
neighbor. Calm, determined and
Intelligent bargaining will succeed
where threats and outbursts of
PRICE CONTROL ►
Our people, represent & CoriSU*
ming, low paid, wage group. Com*
mercial production and creation
is controlled mostly by others.
With limited incomes; job uncer
tainty and often times, large f&fft
ilies— PRICE CONTROL is a God
jffad for the poor man and his
family I am fof it 100 percenT.
NO NEW TAXES
For the same reason I am
against New and Overburdening
Most arguments used to dis
franchise the Negro are derived
directly or indirectly from his col
Ictive state of health. The insur
ance companies, with their statis
tics, taking the lead. Tuberculosis,
Venereal Diseases, Cancer. The
Death rate, they say, is startling.
This is a case where true fig
ures are false. If a person works
long hours in filth, hot and cold
water and other types of exposure
with a salary so small that he can |
not take time off to recuperate—|
why wouldn’t he be susceptible
to the T. B. ? Although the work
he is doing is essential to the Na
tion’s welfare, he is denied ade
quate insurance protection for his
family and loved ones.
Venereal Diseases are passed
from the bad to the good because
of the lack of information and the
ever lack of funds for proper me
dical attention. Disease—saps the
strength; weakens ambition; takes
away personal initiativeness and
the desire to get ahead. We can
not progress with this burden on
our backs. I cannot shout it loud
enough. GIVE US GOVERNMENT
FOR THE AGED
We wouldn’t be worth the salt
in our bread if we didn't take care
of the old folks.
PLANS FOR THE YOUNG
We, as a group, must take steps
to become more economically se
cure. We must start an energetic
campaign to educate our youth
in the ways and means of being
self sustaining and not being so
totally dependant upon others
for employment. Production and
Creation is the answer. Others
create* so can we. Manufacture,
(Bell. Invent. Difficult or not we
must learn how. It is the Answ
er to the most of our problems. If
you can create something as good
or better than the other fellow;
the public is always ready to give
a helping hand. There is no pre
judice that cannnt be overcome in
the field of supply and demand.
There is nothing which creates
respect more favorable than a
clean, well groomed and orderly
neighborhood. Everyone of us
should join hands in trying to im
prove our Community; physical
ly, economically, spiritually and
commercially. I will campaign
continually for improvements
along these lines.

THE ABBE' WALLACE SERVICE
P. 0. Box II. Atlanta 1, Georgia
K. L. K.—I have been going with a
boy for 10 months. He tells me that he
loves me and comes to see me often.
I love him too. He says that if 1 love
Jt'm I will have an affair with him
but I am afraid to do so. I have heaid
that there is a chance of losing him
if girls get too familiar. Please tell
, m; w'.iat to do and put my mind at
ease as I am not experienced at all in
this phase of life.
Ans: The attitude you are taking
is positively the only course for a girl
to follow. If his love is not deep enough
for him to understand appreciate you
doing the right thing, then it would
not be intense enough for which to
build permanent plans. If your admi
rer persists in carrying out his point,
you must be as cagey as he and plan
your dates in such a way that you will
not be alone together too much. Go
out m a group as often as you can and
steer clear of ‘lovers lane'. Once he
realized that you mean business, he
will stay in his place.
C. B.—I am a married girl of 17 j
and have one child. I have been going
with another man since December and J
my husband found it out and tried to i
kill me. Now my husband is a gcod J
worker, gives me anything I want but
he fusses and curses at me all the time
now. I love my husband but I think
I love the other man better. 0. ecu's’I
the other man doesn't give me anythk.g I
as he has a family he has to support.
I wish to know if I should keep going
with him on the siyr
Ans: Your husband has already
given you a sample of what he would
do if he caught you cheating, .he may I
not control his temper quite as well if
he caught you again. You don’t love!
this other man, it's just the novelty |
of the situation which appeals to you. I
Your husband is a good provider and I
is doing his best to make you a good 1
husband and you must see the light |
and begin cooperating. The other man
isn't in love with you..he has a wife]
and family and you should not seek
his company any more. You are still
young, but nevertheless, you are mar

but I can't understand his ways. He
acts as if he loves me but I don’t know
far I know that I show my love for
him but our trouble is we just don’t
get along at all.
Ans: If the love you two have for'
each other is deep and sincere, your
spirit would be that of give and take
rather than disagreement and antagon
ism. Bickering will eventually cause
a rift between you. Learn to compro

your way about everything that arises.
P. F.—Sometime back I met a man who
interested me very much. He went so
far with me as to tell me how he
wfiuld like for his wife to act, what
he would like for her to do and what
he expected of her in general and since
that time I have fallen in love with
him. But somehow, he doesn’t act as
interested in me as he did sometime
back. I want to know if I should con
tinue to hold the torch for him or let
him alone? He has been married once
and he says he isn’t going to take a
chance again until he knows what he
is doing. I want a husband and a home
and wish to know if this is the right
one for me to try to get?
Ans: His intentions are not as ser
ious as you seem to think. Furthermore
it would be very difficult for a girl
to live up to his expectations as a
wife. This f""ow has not bee" as r
dent lately as he was some months ago
which indicates that he is not as in
