Platform of 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 temper fail. 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 Taxes. GOVERNMENTAL MEDICAL AID I 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 HEALTH AID! AMPLE ASSISTANCE 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. COMMUNITY IMPROVEMENT 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.

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 ried and have a child and you are go ing to have to start acting like a full grown woman. A. L.—I believe you can help me with my problem I am in love with a and he tells me he loves me 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 mise now as you won’t be able to have State Senator from the 5th Dist.

Galloway, Senator from the 5th District. Galloway is a man of sound judgement and knows what the ;people want. He will serve you efficiently aad honestly. You will be proud of him. 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 terested in you as he was at the one time, ou are of marriageable age and a-e looking forward to a home of your own and a husband, therefore, encour age as many new friends as you can and do not continue to carry the said torch for any one man until you are mutual. This fellow you have in mind isn’t too interested, .if he were he v.juld surely visit with you more of. t i. Give him up and search for new friends. — .y&t ^BABYa By Edna Mae McIntosh ' In previous columns we have given you some recipes for the use of left over baby foods, and here are two more recipes, one for baby, and one that will be good for baby to eat and enjoyable for the whole family as well.

Improved Uniform International SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON -: By HAROLD L. LUNDQUIST. D. D. Of The Moody Bible Institute of Chicago. Released by Western Newspaper Union. Lesson for June 9 Lesson subjects and Scripture texts se lected and copyrighted by International Council of Religious Education; used by permission. TRAINING FOR SERVICE LESSON TEXT—Mark 6:7-13; Luke 10: 1. 2; 14:25-27. MEMORY SELECTION — And he thal taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.—Matthew 10:3*. Workers for God, and with God! Such is the high privilege of the men and women who respond to his call and who go out to witness for him. On the one side, we have a world desperately in need of the gospel, perhaps more so than any genera tion in history. On the other hand, we have the gospel of the saving grace of God in Christ Jesus, the only solution to the problems of man kind, the perfect answer to man’s need. How shall these two be brought together? By sending out witnesses to tell the glad tidings of redemp tion and peace. Where shall we find these witnesses? In the church, for only the believer in Christ is quali fied to tell others of his saving grace. « Our lesson. In telling of the Lord’# calling and sending forth laborers into his harvest field, gives us muco helpful instruction regarding serv ice for the Lord. We learn that I. God Provides for His Workers (Mark 6:7-10). Jesus sent out his twelve disciples two by two, thus providing every worker with fellowship and help in hours of discouragement and trial. I This also served to keep a man in balance so that he would not become self-willed and proud of his own achievements. It was a wise provision. Perhaps the church should have observed it with more care, and thus have saved some good workers from go ing astray. They were not to be cumbered with extra equipment, nor be con cerned about their daily sustenance. The Lord would provide through the hospitality and generosity of his people. Note that the expected hospitality was not to be allowed to hinder their work (cf. v. 10 with Luke 10:7). Many a preacher or evangelist ha# ruined a series of meetings by let ting social life hinder prayer, soul winning, or preparation for preach ing. ) II. God Gives Power to His Work ers (Marl. 6:7, 11-13). He gave them authority over evil spirits, so that they could drive them out. He gave them power to heal; he gave them power to preachi effectively. The man who goes forth to speak for the Lord does not have to mus ter up his own puny powers or de pend on the weak arm of some hu man helper. His resources are in finite and omnipotent He speaks I for the Almighty God. He has a message with saving power. All too often the servants of the Lord arp apologetic and hesitant in. their ministry. They mistake weak ness for meekness, and in their de sire not to assert themselves, they fail to speak a ringing, “Thus saitb the Lord.” We need a revival of authorita tive preaching, of that hoiv boldness wh:?h was not nfrnid to rebi’ke sin and any unwillingness to do the Lord’s will (v. 11). We need a new emphasis on repentance (v. 12). III. God Calls Helpers for His. Workers (Luke 10: 1, 2). After the twelve were sent out* he called and commissioned the sev enty. That blessed process has gone on ever since. How blessed it is that even in our day of unbelief and sin, hundreds of young men and women are going out to all the mis sion fields of the world to work with older and experienced mission aries. Perhaps these words will be read by some young man or woman -who has felt the promptings of the Spirit of God to go into his service. Step out by faith just now, and begin to prepare yourself for God's service. If the writer of these notes can be of help to you, do not hesitate to write to him. God is looking for more workers. Do not overlook the important ad monition in verse 2. The Lord is waiting for his people to pray for laborers for fields which stand white and ready for harvest. IV.
