Before going further I must make I
mention of a remark made by Mr.
Granger and we must share this
remark with the men. He said and
I quote “I’ve never seen so many
handsome men and beautiful wom
en.” Then he said, “Maybe years
had made me more appreciative
and he went further to say that
maybe this crowd was too nice,....
maybe I could appreciate some not
so nice. In other words a mixed
audience. These fine remarks
were heard by Miss Geneva Bur

NEGRO HISTORY WEEK
This being Negro History WeCK,
society took to the more cultural
side, having affairs that would
help more likely in racial indiffer
ences. The Loyal Matrons’ Pro
gram on last Sunday at Cleaves
Temple was a very fine one. Bring
ing together many of our City's
Negroes and a large number of
white friends. This group is to be

CENTRAL YMCA SCENE OF
NOEL J. LOGAN’S RECITAL
Mr. Noel J. Logan, teacher of
voice, presented his pupils in re-,
cital, all being white with the ex
ception of Mrs. Rose Buckner.
Each of us should individually
congratulate Mrs. Buckner on the
fine way she gave her numbers.
She was beautifully dressed in a
white formal, using of course won- j
derful poise and expressions. The
numbers so beautifully rendered'
were: “Hills of Gruzia.” "My Joh

have heard her. She is to be ap
You don’t have to be an experienced cook
to turn out superb meals in a hurry these
days! No, indeed! A new electric range
takes the guesswork and the gamble out of
cooking. Broiling, baking, and top-of-the
stove cooking are so accurately controlled
you get grand, uniformly dependable and
delicious results, always — and in jig-time,
too. So why not plan to have the conveni
ence of faster cooking—and the pleasure of
better eating—with an electric range!/
OMAHA PUBLIC POWER DISTRICT
CAPT. EARLE CONOVER
What a thrilling thought it is to
think that every day this week,
all across this great Country, there
are being held public meetings, di
vine services and huge open ban
quets at all of which the theme of
Brotherhood will be the central
In our schools and colleges, chur
ches and clubs, there are being
presented special talks, playlets
and pageants, musical programs
from the several faiths, motion pic
tures of film-strips, all portraying
in one way or another the funda
mental truth that we are all living
together as American citizens;
'that this Nation belongs to no one
group; that “one hand washes the
other”; we all rise or fall togeth
Panel Discussions with repres
entatives of the three major faiths
in America, the Protestant, Catho
lic and Jewish, often with a Negro
added for an interracial balance,
are presenting points of interest
and information to those in public
assembly. Frequently the subject
is: “Brotherhood-Pattern for Peace
or perhaps, “BROTHERHOOD
BELIEVE IT, LIVE IT, SUPPORT
IT”. Another one, “PUT UNITY
IN THE COMMUNITY!”
Clerical as well as lay leaders are
being used for such presentations,
women as well as men, older ones
who have lived too realistically,
young people who are still living
idealistically. Their message is:
examine your own prejudices and
The many millions of theatre-go
ers this week are having the call to
Brotherhood come through a movie
“trailer”, in which well-known ac
tors and actresses make their per
sonal appeal to live out the demo
cratic principles of religious liber
ty and of political freedom for all
citizens, irrespective of their creed
color or social class.
Untold millions more will be
hearing some of their favorite
stage and screen stars talking to
them over the radio, once again
asking them to grant unto all oth
ers the very same rights and priv
ileges which they themselves wish
to enjoy in America.
An example of such a COMMUN
ITY MEETING will be that being
held at the Joslyn Memorial on
Sunday evening, February 23rd at
at 7:30 p- m. Lay leaders of the
three religious groups and of the
black people, speaking then, will
be Dick McCann of Radio Station
KON, Tom Sheehan and Jack Mer
er, both attorneys, and Dr. Aaron
McMillan. The last one named al
though a native Omahan, has long
been a medical missionary serving
the Negroes of Africa. Special mua
ical features will be rendered by
The Imperialists. All are invited
to attend and grain the inspiration
