Gaining Favor
Senator Samuel Ettleson is gaining
favor among his friends in the First
Senatorial District and they have de
clared that he will succeed himself lie
cause of his faithfulness to his trust
and his many favors to his constitu
ents. He has always voted for the
best interest of the people and has
been a leading figure in the battle for
live-cent fares. He is being backed
by the regular Thompson Republican
club and the Oscar Depriest organi
zation.
Opposes Wallace Clark
It is reported that Senator Kttleson
is determined to defeat Wallace G.
Clark, Dinnecn candidate, for the
Treasurer of Cook County. It is re
membered that Clark at one time wont
on record as opposing the occupation
of several colored people in the Ken
wood and Hyde Park District. He
will be backed up in his fight by the
voters of the Third Senatorial Dis
trict. He is a candidate to succeed
himself as State Senator.
A Woman For Congress
Mary Belle Spenser, Republican
Candidate for Congressman-at-Large
to fill vacancy, is waging a fight for
nomination which should bring her
the distinction of being the first wo
man from Illinois to sit in Congress.
She is a successful lawyer, fearless,
capable and constructive. She sup
ports the Soldiers’ Bonus Bill, gov
ernment reclamation of arid and
swamp lands, which means employ
ment and new territory for farm lands
and is opposed to any measure which
will interfere with the personal lib
erty of the people.
She promises, if elected, to support
every measure which will aid the col
ored voters of this country. She has
proven her wo^th and sympathy for
black people in many instances in the
courts of Chicago. A vote for her at
the coming primaries, April 11th,
will be a vote for a friend to the race.
Blind Man For Office
William “Crip” Wooifc, Republican
candidate for County Commissioner,
is one of the most widely known men
in the city. He has won many friends
both white and black, in various parts
of the city and now hopes that these
friends and admirers will do him the
honor of electing him to office which
he now seeks, making him the first
“Blind Negro” elected to public office.
At the various meetings which he
has attended throughout the city he
has made a great hit and invites all
who have not heard him to come to
the meeting at The Community Cen
ter, 3118-20 Giles ave., for which ad
vertisement has already appeared
He solicits your votes in his behalf
on primary, April 11th.

last five years to get proper recogni
tion according to voting strength for
the black people of the Third Ward.,

terlopers who jump into the Ward at!
the last minute or who do not even |
belong in the ward but merely seeki
to control it.
3. Believes that Bither has not
given black people of ward, who are
nearly seventy-five per cent of the
voting strength, proper recognition
4. Questions whether Bither and
his cohorts can mean the black people
any good when he (Bither) supports
Wallace Clark, whom The Tribune
alleged aided in the attempt to keep
black people from living on Forest
ville Avenue, in 1915.
5. Stands for five-cent. fares and
calls attention to the fact that his op
ponent, Warren B. Douglas, voted
against this measure last year in the
State Legislature.
6. Objects to Bither and others
! using this primary as a means to build
up an organization for use for him
self in 1924.
He announces that he stands for
five-cent fares, cheaper rent, partici
pation in Ward affairs according to
voting strength, is opposed to vicious
vice conditions and their protection
as they now exist, and for a full and
freer personal liberty. He calls upon
all reasonable voters to think and act
at the polls April 11th with their eyes
open and the idea of good government
and fair practices in mind.

McMurray For Congress
Senator James McMurray of the
5th Senatorial District is the one
citizen 01 Chicago that should be re
nominated and elected. Of all the
highc-t class men who deserve this
honor is Mr. McMurras. His record
lias been a splendid one. While he is
an aristocrat and lives among them
and bv virtue of the financial stand
ing is held in big hesteem, it is never
theless true that he has always stood
by the great common people and voted
tor their interests. He gives employ
ment to a number of our people in his
industrial plant.
Educating Two of Our Race
One of the big features of his char
acter that stand out prominently is
that he is educating two young men
of the Black Race. One he is sending
to the Arts and Science of the Uni
versity of Chicago and the other in
a College of Pharmacy. This alone
should cause every voter of our race
in the 5th Senatorial District to vote
for him. He is endorsed by the regu
lar Republican Organization of his
District and is endorsed by the Legis
lative Voters League. This League
says of him: “Senator MarMurray
‘made good' from the outset; was one
of the leading opponents of the ob
jectional Thompson-Small measures
and made a hard fight to bring about
a legislative investigation of the ex
penditures of the Chicago taxing
bodies; a public spirited and courage
ous member who made an unusually
fine record.”
Admitted to Illinois Bar
Senotor MacMurray was born in
Knox County. Mo.; educated in the
public schools of Missouri and Illinois
and graduated from the Chaddock
College in Quincy, 111., and also from
the law school. He was admitted to
the bar in Illinois and practiced law
at Quincy for seven years. More than
twenty years ago he hought the con
trolling interest in the Acme Steel
Goods Co. and became its president,
which position he now holds. It is
at this plant where he employs a
number of our people.
.Member of 6th Ward Organization
Senator MacMurray is a member
of the 6th Ward Republican Organi
zation and has worked for its inter
est for the past twenty years. In
1908 he was President of the Taft
Club of Chicago and did valuable work
in that campaign. In 1910 he was
chairman of the Republican Cook
County Republican Convention. He
is a Mason and a member of the lead
ing social clubs of the Southside and
a trustee of the St. James Methodist
Episcopal Church; a trustee of the
Illinois Woman's College and of Gar
rett Biblical Institute. Of all the
andidates who are running for office
n this primary, none deserves our
support more than Senator MacMur
•ay.

What
Ralph
wrote
to Bill
I
BILL is a good substantial citizen
who, like many of us, had,
up to a short time ago, never saved
his money systematically
He never really thought seriously
of investing in bonds until he was
married a few years ago. Being in
experienced in financial matters, he
wrote several letters to Ralph, an
attorney friend of his, who an
swered all his questions in a very
simple and clear manner
We have just published a booklet 1
called “An investor's Letters”
which contains all of Ralph s and
Bill’s correspondence. You will
find it very interesting and it may
clear up some of the questions you
(have in your own mind about in
vestment matters
