“If we are to become progressively stronger, if our paths

“If anyone were to list the reasons why the United States

INDUSTRIAL LOOKING GLASS
By Allan W. Powell *
(NIPS)—-It is almost one of te greattest tragedies of
our times that only a proportionately ew Negroes are stock
holders in a major industrial corporation of the country. Were
this not the case, it is almost certain that some o the present
conceptions of the operation of the private enterprise system
would undergo some adjustment in the minds of many of us.
For some reason it has never been a practice of Brown
Amberica to invest monies in stocks or bonds, despite the
act that this phase of our economy is almost the backbone of
the system under which this country enjoys its position as
<one of the leading nations of the world.
There are but a few leading utility, manufacturing, or
commercial units now functioning that do not owe their ex
istence to the thousands of persons who have financed then
operations through the purchase of shares from their wage.^
or other income. In one large manufacturing company , about
35 percent of the nearly 250.000 stock holders own from 1 to
10 shares, while 85 percent of the total number are individuals.
Vpt, we as a people are pathetically unaware of the finan
cial element that is an integral part of any major corporation’s
functioning. If this were not the case, the present outlook on
the partt of many of us, especially as regards labor-manage
ment relations, could be materially adjusted in view of our
personal and more intelligent awareenss.
Our appreciation of the significance of wage le\els, op
erating costs, taxation, dividends, and the other facets of a
companv’s operations could not help but be reflected in our
more analvtical appraisal that would be undertaken in order
to protect our investment. Nor is it too far-fetched to assume
that the time may come when our equity in a corporation n
.business afairs may result in policy changes that would ac
complish some o thofse present inequalities that now efect us.

" Great Britain’s refusal to recognize Palestine
■Z' Is another awful blunder of our time.
Britain couldn’tt do any better
Following Hitler’s orders to the letter
• A people who has suffered so much
And their loss so great
To now again share the same fate
Through a nation which preaches democracy
But like our own is just hvpocrisy
Be ye not deceived God is not mocked
He counts deeds condemns idle talk
And Britain shall rue the day
She ever armed the Arabs to slay
For God in His appointed time
Shall right the wrongs of Palestine. , - ,
The Christian world now weeps with you
\ For all you have gone through
And it makes us very sad
That Jerusalem is a Stalingrad
But lift up your hearts Oh Israel \
For your cause is just and real.
The God of might is on your side
i He will lead you through the swelling tide
The dav is coming soon
When Palestine shall blossom and bloom
And they who persecute you now
In shame their heads shall bow
_»f Pain and sorrow they too shall know
For God has willed it so.
A flag was never raised on high
■* • Till brave men had to fight and die
Thy flag Oh Israel shall ever wave on high
The Star of David as a Star aflame
' * Proclaiming to the world they nation’s name.

DJ.— I have been going with
this ellow 7 months. He made
me fall in love with hint by be
ing so nice to me and now I do
love him so hard. But he tells
me now and he isn’t ready to
settle down even though he did
a.-^k me to marry him and said
he was looking for a wife when
we irst started together. I ou
nd a girl’s picture he dropped
out of his pocket. Does that
Ans: It does. You are no long
er the apple of his eye. Here
of late, you have some stiff com
petition. However, two can
play this game—get around
and side up to some nice, like
able chap yourself and watch
his blood pressure rise.
B. M.—I have five hundred
dollars ow my own money. My
friend has been trying to get
me to loan him part of it. I
want to keep this money. Ple
ase tell me if I need to worry
Ans: Yes—unless you bank it.
Open savings account at the
bank immediately and deposit
this money. Keeping it on your
person as you are doing at this
time is most unwise as you will
lose it or it will get away from
you in some way. Your sav
ings will be insured and sae in
J. M. A.—Should I remain
where I am or take a room at
Ans: Take the room you have
been trying to get as soon as
it is vacant. A change isn t ab
solutely necessarv as your pre
sent landlady has nothing ag -
ainst you—but since you feel
your present enviroment of
fers you little—take the new
place. It will be the means of
your making new friends.
L.B.—It seems that my hus
band and I can’t get along, I
love him and I know that he
loves me but we uss all of the
time. We say things to one
another that we are sorry for
afterwards. Seems though 1'
have something catty to say
, every time he comes m.
i I want wou to tell me if we
can ever be happy?
iAns: You can—yes—but now
unless you can turn over a
new leaf. If you and your mate
persist in abusing each other—
the ultimate solution will be
separation and divorce. By all
means send 25 cents for my
Happier Living Lesson “How
To Hold Your Mate, before
your marrage ends in complete
F. C. B.—I am writing to ifnd
out if I should accept the offer
my son and his Bride have
made me about coming and
living with them. They have a
new home. I own my own
home. Should I go?
Ans: Your son and new dau
ghter-in-law mean well, but it
is best that you keep your in
dependance—and let them sha
re their love alone. Visit them
occasionally to prove your love
for them—but don’t move in
bag and baggage.
Ziplock Helps Curb Bicycle Thefts •
If you want your bike not only to get you to school but also back
again, lock it securely, say the Yale experts. Mary Kay Jones who
plays a fifteen-year-old high school girl in the Broadway 'hit “Strange

bike-wheel can’t turn when it is fastened with the new Yale ziplock
The lock case can be zipped up the notched steel shackle to fit anv size

InU GR1G1NU UN CAR
COMFORT, SAYS NOTED
Despite the fact that the con
veniences and ease of riding in
the modern automobile has ac
hieved remarkable distinction
in recent years, the limit to the
improvements possible does’nt
exist, arrording to Earl H. Sm
ith, famous experimental and
major motor car company.
The average car-buyer is ev
idencing an increasing desire
for car-comfort making his ch
oice, says Smith, even to a
point of ranking it above such
factors as power, economy, ap
pearance, roominess, and de
pendability during a recent sur
vey. Yet, he pointed out, eng
ineers are still well ahead of
the public’s wishes, and indic
ated that his own company
conducts 3,000 experiments
each year to improve the ride.
For many years, car-riders
grew better with the improv
ements of the highways, Smith
said, but now that roads gen
erally are good, the responsib
ities for improvements rests
entirely with the specialists,
and they are making a contin
uous effort to reduce side-sha
ke back and forth and up and
down motion to a minimum.

FACTS IN RHYME
By Myrtle M. Goodlow
.“By their fruits ye shall know them”
Said Christ the Saviour of men.
And Father Flanagan is living proof
Of this great gospel truth.
W orking with heart and soul, '
He reacned his long sought goal.
Father Flanagan’s work and love for humanity,
Has proven him to be
A true disciple of Christ.
And all that a servant of His should be.
Filled with the love and spirit of Christ,
He labors for all alike.
Faithiuiiy toiiowing the Master’s plan,
In loving and serving his fellowman.
Without the helping hand,
Of Father Flanagan,
Hundreds of boys of every race,
color and creed —
Wrould never have known
The comforts and joys of home.
Or taught the useful trades which fit them—
Nor the religious training given them
To take an honored place among men.
The sacred words I recall,
“He that is greatest among you—
Shall be the servant of all.”
Still ring true from the heavens blue.
And should be a lesson to all. .
To love and serve mankind alike,
Is the true spirit of our blessed Christ.
Father Flanagan never shirked his work,—
In God’s great vineyard —
But has labored long and hard,
And today we see his reward.
And his efforts crowned,
In the beautiful buildings of Boys’ Town!
That through the years shall stand —
As a monument to our beloved
Servant of God — and servant of man,
God bless Father Flanagan!
This poem was written by one of Omaha’s own.
Father Flanagan had the pleasure of-reading it in Feb
ruary, 1945. This poem was published by the Omaha
Guide Publishing Co. Also below, is a letter from Fath
er Flanagan to the writer of the poem to express his
gratitude for the flowers where he lived.

closed clipping, “Facts in Rhyme”. I appreciate your j
interest in Boys Town and by all means I am greatly
flattered by your writing effort.
We are continuing to strive to do a better job here

for the bovs we help we know it is very worthwhile.
The confidence that people have in us, such as your
self, as expressed in your “Facts in Rhyme”, help us to
carry on our work.
Thanking you for your interest in Boys Town, and
with every good wish, I am
(Signed) E.J. Flanagan.
