Doings Among

DOINGS AMONG THE STAGS
Christmas has passed, the problem
of what to get cousin Jane has either
been solved or dismissed and our
chief worry is “Where is the money
coming from to pay the bills.”
It has always seemed odd to me
how women, when choosing wearing
apparel for themselves, will be sure
that everything matches and harmon-,
izes, but when these same women I
pick out a necktie, socks or a shirt
for a man, they get all the colors of
the rainbow, that clash and moan in
agony at being placed together. Will
some kindhearted lady please explain
this?
A suggestion: Cooking schools for
women; training courses for radio
announcers, etc., why not a training
course in “How and what to buy a
man for Christmas?”
Popular Christmas song of a young
man: “I Can’t Give You Anything
But Love, Baby.”
The Bachelor Benedicts are giving
a Charity ball for the benefit of the
Old People’s Hone. It is a worthy
undertaking ana kelp is sorely need
ed by the home. The move is very
popular and the ball promises to be
well attended.
The Varsity club is preparing to
give a midwinter frolic and have set
the date on Friday, February 1. This
is a newly organized group composed
of young men and their frolic prom
ises to be a scene of much merriment.
I see Arthur McCaw is wearing his

The Flapperette club met at the
home of Miss Edna James, Friday.
After a very interesting business
meeting, a play which will be pre
sented by this club in the near fu
ture, was rehearsed. While waiting
for tardy members of the club to ar
rive in order to continue with bus
iness, a short time was spent playing
whist. The winners were Miss Cath
erine Williams, and Miss Josephine
Martin. A very enjoyable time was
had by all present.

OLD FOLKS’ HOME
The Bachelor Benedict club is giv
ing a charity ball for the benefit of
the building fund of the Old Folks’
Home. They are doing everything
to mi ’-e it the largest affair that has
ever oe-en given for the benefit of
charity in Omaha. One thousand
tickets have been placed on sale and
are selling very fast. People who
never go to dances are buying tick
ets to help the cause. The board of
the Old Folks’ Home are also selling
tickets and it is hoped tpat no one
will nay no toward buying a ticket,
as the money is badly needed.
We are very proud to know that
Dr. J. H. Hutten, a meirtber of our

lor Smith gave a basket of onions
and some canned fruit.
We have a very efficient house
keeper in Mrs. Mattie M&ner. Call

visiting day.
CALLS MISSISSIPPI “PLAGUE
SPOT OF LYNCHING” IN U. S.
Copie* of Telegram by Advancement
A*«ociation Sent to tpoolidge
and Congre**; Denuncia
tion Sent Gov. Bilbo
New York, Jan. 2—The state of
Mississippi, whose two lynchings in
the past week, raise the year’s record
in the United States fr&m nine to
eleven, is called the “plague spot of
lynching in America,” in a telegram
sent today to Governor Theodore Bil
bo by the National Association for
the Advancement of Colored People.
In the telegram, Mississippi’s “an
archic indifference to human life and
standards of common decency essen
tial to civilization,” are hailed as
symptoms of the low place of that
state in education, per capita wealth,
industry and general progress. The
telegram to Governor Bilbo, signed
by James Weldon Johnson, secretary
of the National Association for the
Advancement of Colored People, is
as follows:
“Mississippi again stands pilloried
before the civilized world as the
plague spot of lynching in America,
having raised the total for the United
States during 1928 from nine to 11,
with two brutal mob murders in the
last week of the year. One of these
atrocities was the burning alive of a
man at the stake. Five of the 11
lynchings of the year are charged
against Mississippi.
“It is reported by the press that
you called out troops to hunt the
Negro but declined to use these
troops for the maintenance of due
process of law when the mob’s victim
had been captured. It is further re
ported that you viewed the charred
body of the burned man and then
made a public statement saying that
no investigation of the outrage would
be made at your instigation as you
had ‘neither the time nor the money
to investigate two thousand people.’
“This is in effect encouragement
to Mississippi lynchers by the gover
nor of the state. That the chief ex
ecutive of any American state can
make such a pronouncement unwhip
ped of public opinino, goes far to ac
count for the low position occupied
by that state in matters of education,
law enforcement, wealth, industry
and human progress. It is a pro
nouncement emanating from anar
chic indifference to human life and
standards of common decency essen
tial to even a minimum of civiliza
tion.
“You, Governor Theodore Bilbo of
Mississippi, and the lynchdrs you en
courage, are the best possible argu
ment for a federal anti-lynching law,
by which the might of the federal
government would crush out the atro
cities which shame America before
the civilized world. Copies of this
telegram to you are being sent to
President Coolidge and to the presid
ing officers of both houses of the
congress of the United States.”

Remit for The Monitor.
NEW BUSSES
and
Rerouting of Cars
await traffic survey
now being made
Applications have been made to us for twenty-nine new bus
routes from as many different sections or neighborhoods of
the city.
These applications are signed by people who want busses, not
alone for their own convenience, but for the convenience of
their friends and neighbors. Also, they believe the busses
they apply for will at least support themselves.
We have numerous applications for rerouting and extending
present car lines, some of which would require new track con
struction.
COST WOULD RE $500,000
To grant all these requests would cosl more man $500,000 for
new equipment, material and labor. In addition to the initial
expense, there would be continuing maintenance and operation
charges.
It is obvious that all this expense should not be undertaken
without assurance that the impiovements asked for would pro
duce sufficient additional revenue. Present car riders probably
would not pare to pav the necessary additional charges.
(Jndei oui new franchise, the city council has authority over
new lines and extensions. The franchise also directs the coun
cil to consider “the initial cost and the resulting increased ex
pense of operation." As a fair-minded body, the council would
of course consider these matters even though they were not in
the franchise.
To enable the city council to act intelligently on questions ot bus exten
sion and rerouting of car lines, and also to get accurate information on
all other trallir problems in Omaha, the council several months ago ar
ranged for a city-wide trallic survey by Ross Harris, the best known
trallir engineer in America This survey began in October, and is now
well under wav. It probably will be completed within three or four
months Mr Harris' headquarters are in the city hall. The work of his
organization, which requires from thirty to fifty people at all times, is
under citv supervision. ,
i
COUNCIL HAS PROVIDED FOR PUBLIC HEARINGS
Mr. Harris office is open to the public at all times tor suggestions and
other information. The city council has provided that before his final
report is made, he must hold public hearings, giving an opportunity for
any individuals or organizations to present all ideas or facts they may
have •ruffir -onditi -ns nod traffic needs.
With m. completion ul tins survey, which will include traffic conditions
and traffic requirements in every section of Omaha, outlying as well as
downtown the citv c'M'’c'I w'II then have all the facts bearing upon the
transportation needs of the city and will then be able to rule wisely on
what extensions and rerouting should he made.
j
It is our desire and intention to give ad'-iquate transportation service to the entire city.
To do this probably will require some changes and extensions. Such changes and addi
tions as are made, however, should be sound. And we. therefore, earnestly request
those "'hi* are asking for new or additional transportation service to bear with us until
the facts are’in hand, which facts we arm '—- —v — fbe traffic survey is complete.
