Heads Prominent Group
Seeking to Re-elect Roosevelt
By K. A. Bristol
Political Editor
With au abiding faith in the pres
ent administration, and with a deep
determination to have it continue for
another four years, there was
launched this week, strong organi
zation of public spirited voters of
high standing in the professional,
business, civic and social life of our
group, all formerly Republicans, who
are interested in the re-election of
President Roosevelt.
In order to serve all persons who
feel as they do, this organization,
known as the Roosevelt Crusaders,
has opened headquarters at 3453
So. Michigan ave., telephone Calu
met 65G2.
Edward AT. Sneed, County Demo
cratic Race Leader, on being inform
ed of this organization, and seeing
the calibre of the persons lined up
with it was jubilant and gave it his
whole hearted endorsement. “Such
an organization will give, the public
a gc ad idea of the high esteem think
ing people have for the head of our
ticket", raid Air. Sneed. “Working
in conjunction with our regular
Ward organization, it will no doubt
be a great help in bringing to those
not regularly associated with us, the
great benefit President Roosevelt
has been to the County as a whole
and our people in particular”.
The officers of this organization
arc: Afrs. Eleanor C. Dailey, General
Chairman; Afrs. Beatrice H. AfcGill,
co-chairman; Dr. Clifford Doyle,
co-chairman in charge of the Physi
cians’ group; Atty. R. E. West
brooks, co-chairman in charge of the
lawyer's group; A. E. Bush, Presi
dent; Afrs. Ruby Carter, A ice-Presi
dent; Afrs. Helen McDonald, Secre
tary; Afrs. William R. Rhetta, Ass’t.
Secretary; Dr. Hale G. Parker, Dis
trict organizer; Airs. Lillian 1.ester,
Ass’t. organizer.
They arc arousing great interest
among Republicans and independent
voters.
“The object of this organization”
said one of its members, “is to bring
to the attention of the every colored
voter the absolute necessity of hav
ing the President in office for
another four years. It means their
economic salvation. Who can doubt
the fact that President Roosevelt’s
administration has meant more to
the Negro that those of all the form
er Republican presidents within liv
ing memory. It will he a backward
step to defeat him and a blot to the
fair name of the Negro not to sup
port the President. Our people are
therefore urgently requsted o fill out
the coupons and bring or send them
to the office of the Metropolitan
News".
Mrs. Dailey, prominent in civic
and social circles said: “I take the
stand for the President because of
that part of bis program which gave
food to the hungry and work to the
unemployed. While lie lias spent
money, we must remember that the
situation before lie took office was
such that there w'crc thousands up
on thousands who were hungry and
unemployed, and it was the human
tli ing to do".
The officers have already secured
the services of about 2,000 militant

men and women who are carrying
the banner of the Crusaders from
door to door, and arc undoubtedly
“enlisted for the duration of the
war’’.

CHICAGO SURRENDERS
TO PRES ROOSEVELT
(Continued from Front Page)
saved their homes, their farms, their families, their hopes
stracion. All eager to get a glimpse of the man who had
and their lives from the effects of a twelve year destructive
period of Republican rule that had sapped all hope of the
future for the citizens of this great continent.
As the President viewed the great throng of admirers,
friends and beneficiaries, you could hear them yell with ex
pressions of gratitude. “God bless you, stand firm, no one
can hurt you, you are a God-sent man to a suffering human
ity.” Still othess were saying, ‘‘He saved my home;” “He fed
my baby,” and “He gave my husband a job,” and still in
confusing voices, all conveying words of praise and grati
tude in such as, “He is the greatest man on earth, his heart
is right..” It would be impossible to fully describe this gigan
tic affair and at most we can only give you a slight idea of it.
With love and good cheer, we say fight on, Mr. Presi
dent, your cause is worthy and all the devils in hell can not
defeat the plans of Him under whose guidance you are at
work.
Heaven takes care that no man
secures happiness bjr crime.
—Alferi.
The qualities we have do not
make us so ridiculous as those
w.hicli we affect to have.
Borrow trouble for yourself, if
that's your nature, but don’t lend
it to your neighbors.
—Rudyard Kipling.
He is master and lord of his
brothers who is worthier and wiser
than they.
