Nance, President of the Univer
sity of Tampa, gave an address
about racial and religious prejud
ice in this country. Like all other
decent and intelligent people, he
considers prejudice loathsome—a
disease that can sicken any socie

about it? We stand together in
the defense of each other's rights
just as the responsible spokesmen
of the three great faiths have
told us to do.
Dr. Nance quotes Cardinal Gib
bons who, seaking 53 years ago
at the Parliament of Religion in
Chicago, declared, “Though we
differ in faith, thank God we
stand united on the platform of
charity and benevolence. Let us
do all we can in our day and gen.
eration in the cause of humanity.r
Coming to our own generation
he gives us the statement on in
terfaith action of Archbishop
Robert E. Lucy of San Antonio,
and six other Catholic bishops,
‘For the sake of God and human
ity let us continue and extend coll
aboration n those worthwhile
movements that are calculated to
hasten the day ofN enduring peace,
justice, charity and good will.”
Finally, there is a statement of
Archbishop Richard L. Cushing of
Boston, ‘We shall always have to

one another; love our neighbor
and love fiim irrespective of race,

“I could quote as many and as

Dr. Aaron McMillan
to Practice in Omaha
Dr. Aaron M. McMillan, medical
missionary and noted surgeon is
resuming the practice of medicine
here after eighteen years of work
in Angela, Portuguese West Afri
ca. During his residence ther he
established the one-hundred-thirty
beds. Willie F. Pierce Memorial
Hospital where in treating tens of
thousands of natives and Europ
eans, he became one of the fcnost
eminent surgeons in the -world.
Dr. McMillan first came to
Omaha in 1920 to visit his father,
the late Rev. Henry R. McMillan
then pastor of the Mt. Morish
Baptist Church.
After receiving his degree from
Meharry Medical College and serv
ing his intemeship he opened an
office in Omaha. In 1928 he was
elected to the state legislature;
leaving the following year to
work under the Board of Foreign
Missions of the Congregational
Church. o
The next eighteen months was
spent in Portugal where he studied
the language of the territory to
which he was being sent and ob
tained after a post-graduate med
ical course at the University of
Lisbon a Portuguese Medical
licence. He has also done post
graduate work in surgery at the
University of Paris.
The doctor and his family re
turned to the United States only
once during their extended service
in the eastern hemisDhere.
Dr. McMillan’s decision recalls
to us an article about his week in
the Reader’s Digest written by
Linton Wells after a visit to the
Mission in 1942. “Someday,’’ said
the doctor. “I would like to come
home and train other men and
women of my race for medical
medical missionary service.”
The office is located at present
at 2892 Miami st., pending the
establishment of a hospital and

_____—- /
hanging from “criminal negli
gence” to mental underdevelop
ment” have been leveled at the
radio industry by Dr. Henry J.
Skornia, radio director of Indiana
University. He made a six-month
In a 50-page report,Dr. Skornia
listed major radio offenses:
Commercials—the one import
ant objection—must be improved
and shortened.
Radio should provide a flow of
new ideas. Because people tolorate
what they have doesn't mean they
wouldn’t be more enthusiastic
about something better.
Soap operas are not the only
thing on the air in the daytime.
But in remote areas reached only
by stations of these networks
which feature soap opera, they
are the only fare available.
Forums and talks are little ap
preciated. Perhaps more artistry
should go into them.
The tragedy of radio is the ab
horence, by those who need it
most, of what will do them the
most good,’’ Dr. Skornia said.
“The less educated the listener,
the less he wants to be educated.
"Radio says it is discharging its
responsibility. I say that, with the
comercial know-how they poss
ess, their approach to the pro
motion of some programs is gen
erally nothing less than mockery.
“I feel that radio has taught
people who had never heard of
it to like boogie woogie and that
it could do the same for other
types of program.”
