Cooperate With These Merchants. They Solicit and Appreciate Your Trade.
Each year The Omaha Guide launches its Annual “Prepardness Campaign” in cooperation with the local Coal and Heating Merchants.
We wish to particularly call your attention to the fact that due to the numerous coal strikes the price of fuel must necessarily be rais
ed. To avoid paying higher prices and to reassure prompt delivery in the fall, it is wise to place your order NOW.; also to have your
furnace cleaned and repaired. “Don’t delay act NOW.”
The following Merhants whose Ad appears in this Special Edition and elsewhere appreciate your trade.

Africa defintel/ had a message
to bring to America; a gospel of
living up to the human beliefs
they profess. Turning to the
fifth Chapter of St. Mathew gos
pel, he read that we should love
our enemies and do good, to them
that despitefully use us.
He thought—at least, the black
people do not act like enemies
o the white. Certainly the whites
would have been treating us, the
blacks, as brothers because they
are a Christian peop'e. If white
brothers discriminate against
their blacks ones, how do they
propose to make it easy for the
blacks to love them?
The- race segregation law did
not make sense—What hyocrisy!

He came from a long ancestry

No Au.-.ican organization was

to carry on was to work and

Ojike has written these two
books which are easy to read an&
which any reader who knows
little about Africa will find highly

Ojike has proven that despie

that one can do almost anything
if they have the will.
