Be who 0te americans give thanks to god for out neutrality during the present world crisis notwithstanding that As individual citizens regardless of race or Creed we should and will hold Ever High the our rec White and Blue during the times of peace or the times of War. The blessings bestowed upon All americans Are so great in abundance that there should be no divided Alliance Between righteousness Anc Goodwill toward men.

The first year anniversary of the examiner curing., the latter part of 1938, after making a statistical study of the. Conditions and crises that definitely confronted Galveston , �?�1 savr the immediate necessity of a negro weekly newspaper a new a not for sold nor sounding brass a a not for Silver a a nor. Glittering tinsel a but for the Sake of our people and general tons unborn. And it was until August 1939 that i was Able to organize a newspaper staff. This Stait is now with me and represented on Page 4. Overcoming political so roundels shortly a circe the City election like others i invested my Trust and in Tidence in the Galveston City party and its candidates a yet a Here were unworthy political scoundrels and thugs who set out to halt my Active support of the party through undercurrent procedures of which 1 am very much aware. These characters that i now ,f were men who were desperate in selfishness and who Are traitors in their site of leadership. These men had fear that they would be exposed along with their Rasca Lity. To me at this time while they were spreading their propaganda and discord along my pathway they looked like the shadows of Gray rats. A Gray rat is the lowest rat in the world. He is Swift and everything to. Him looks like a cat. He believes in the darkness he believes in filth he believes in the a snatch Nad run Quot method. Ripcse Are some of the lasting traits of a Gray mouse. But i was confidences upon the principles of the Bible that righteousness shall prevail. I was fair i was honest i was sincere. And today and now i have no colons to deny. I have to Crown that i am ashamed of. I have my same Banner with the words Quot it is just As easy to do the right thing As it is to do a wrong and still More because of my eagerness to it come these notorious political scoundrels i was successful in rendering my faithful and Humble service in the interest of our people. Although i campaigned for the present municipal administration shortly after the election of last May 9th. A Blunder of mistakes unwillingly and unfortunately were made during the promotion of the., general welfare of our people in this our Metropolis. And at this Tims the notorious political demons who resemble the Shadow of a Gra Ray did not show up on the scene a the altar of. The Freedom of the with the same faithfulness that 1 maintained esteem in my heart and Oul during the general City election i challenged the irresistible foes of unwarranted mistakes that brought pressure to Bear upon the Galveston citizens. It was an unpleasant duty to yet the crises that pressed Louici Chi use to go into aim cts Anci preach me Gosf and a whosoever will let him come Quot More men be Sav d in preference of advice that the Andje restitute should be slammed in jail or slayed Topper with a principle a newspaper to speak for the interest of tit than unpleasant. This situation necessitated vital Vav Oann non Ltd .1___, i____1 i it _ i.

And of quaint you with my column eco Ember 193� i published the first edition of Jour newspaper threw them in Galveston Quot i will a a a Alveston examiner. In the beginning of my journalistic career he inv in on some fact your see. I Ivy utmost sincerity was to serve the greatest interest of the people found reporter was on the impartially and without fear. The greatest spark of courage was that Oft and saw miss Annie b. A no ambition to build a paper free from mud filth and yellow data no on of Houston former 38 newspaper that every Home could be proud of a newspaper that Everytte Paul inn collage and member of the family could enjoy Reading. Again 1 should say. My great Jurden and a Friend or. Z. Objective As Well As my duty was to prove myself worthy of the Fine by also of Houston out on support that i have enjoyed and my citizenship. Each doing their number. Past failures of Many other Galveston negro papers inclusive a course Viniss Arnell a. Dotson it to electable leadership and traitorous character stood out Foremost As Ciccon on the Beach with some a faulty pathway Over which i had to travel. Propagandists of the cuts. They say he politicians men with two faces men with Iron hearts were Bungag d Ink ours truly and i saw them their desperate regime to Handicap my venture to faithfully serve Ouva re be j02 and his Friend or. Citizenship. The Confidence or the people Here had been usurped Andl on the cuts for an evening had quivered beneath the foe of persons who deliberately thrived upon a the Kijoo Wilfo our people and at their grave disadvantage for no other reason other than that of individual selfishness o trait1 that juried them beneath the haunted Billows of a i shall Nev a these Are the Pitfalls that stared me in the face during my first venture into the journalistic in Galveston. Apparently i was the Only a Man who it a lived in the principle that Quot false judgement , not be Van a f a cd upon an individual because of the traitorous deeds of others with a general interest of my people and generations unborn that captured my heart and so it fire to my soul when through the Power of god i visualized a people without a vision who perished. It is Only through sacrificial services that any Man or race can insure through honesty and0 fairness the future possibilities of Mankind. A i Samue Bangs because of his skillful ability achieved the distinction of bringing thwart of printing to Texas. Through difficult Cir up stances As a master of the Type he Laid a lasting foundation of the printing Industry in this great character in mind and with modern facilities i challenged a publishers career with obstacles created by vicious men of wickedness who would halt the use of modern facilities respectively if ambition should weaken but i met with the opposition on even grounds and printed the Galveston examiner without Volunteer or paid help. One Man with Faith and Hope i gathered up news and advertising and then went into a Small inconvenient Plant and manhandled the compositor work of an eight Page paper locked the chases and operated the press. With not even a boy to fold the papers i carried on. To the end handled circulation and prepared for the next edition. This is possibly the first time that one Man has Ever published arid printed an eight Page paper without any help and no encouragement from others. This is a matter of history a not for Praise a Stopp it Dion. This attack was in Good Faith wed Ltd people. I did not enjoy writing the the flt of that i did not enjoy seeing the and g the realization of this unfavourable favor the necessary corrections in a fair a correction we All Are grateful and we miss Rod of time that i now mention i of heti factory condition in the history of ideals of Galveston were propounded Friend it they visualized the possibilities of of. Xii Csc possibilities. Pioneers like the Day us the Moodys the Kelso the a Wilc. M. W levys and Many others who have Hennei Island to Cement the existence of or. Progressiveness Are to be remembered and sier relation and to maintain greater Las a it citizenship. The condition a a Gilves iting been studied by our pioneers. Their few me present Day pictured omitting the condition. Their sacred vision no doubt revealed Galveston As the greatest port in the Southwest outstanding for its Quick dispatching. Yet Wuhan the scope of those visions i am sure they realized that Mutual advantages should be maintained Foremost Here in order for Galveston to survive. Unlike the desperate characters of today who live behind their Desi rotis Iron masks As men with two faces who advocate righteousness and fairness and yet Flash their like of despair the pioneers of Galveston were honest in their efforts to safeguard the existence of human integrity. Men today in Galveston seek to usurp the righteous motives of our pioneers with capital and shrewd traits. Some will destroy these sacred fundamentals for selfish political Power. Some will tear Down the Mutual understanding for the propound Ance of revenge ulness. I Ltd a men who style themselves As honest leaders have used the Grace of religion to reciprocate their malicious plans. They would tear apart the shores of Galveston to satisfy their immediate ideals regardless of the principles involved. Men have dragged churches and religious groups into desperate political circles. They have Laid aside the importance of practising As Well As teaching the principles of god and True religion. They have Laid aside their interest in the poor a the widows and orphans the Blind the cripple and Lairie in Exchange for Fra Vilous political Force. I say to the group of a one tract minded political saints that no Man has Ever been converted by Force of political Powei. It is Only through honest convictions of living sous that men Are saved from the Boun Tance of hell. A Christ said a whosoever will Lei him come but these political bound religious leaders of this modern Day say a a whosoever sins must be if this Good time should be spent in teaching and living the True principles of god. I should think that Justice of righteousness would be served to a Butler end and More a our a would be saved. If these religious political ambitious leaders would choose to go into districts and a preach the gospel on the Comer s and More women e people gamblers of a prostitutes should be slammed in jail or slayed because of their attempts to flee for their Freedom. Believe that a Gambur or prostitute can be saved if they Are taught the Ray to Clorist rather than forced into the Way of Christ. According to the history of the Book of books since the beginning of the world Thuiy. Have be ii gamblers prostitutes and other sinful people and i dalt not say that these conditions will exist until the end of the would. Bbl i maintain and contend that these conditions can be remedied More abundantly if religion is Given its rightful place in the world. I believe in saving men at will not molesting men by Force of religion Law a omd . Let the righteous be the righteous let the sinner be the sin t or but above All let the righteous be stronger than the sinner. Here n Galveston for instance our sunny seaport town if the will of religious political leaders should be granted if the people in the districts should be driven from their vicinities religion will smear a stain upon its masked pole. Ships Are routed through Galveston from different countries. Men sailors who Are thrown in our Community by virtue of conditions and resource. Will be left free to wander and prowl into recent neighbourhoods no doubt where prostitutes from the District will have gone. From this picture we get a corrupt environment brought about by Force of religious political ambitious characters. 1 in my soul i object to these sinful methods of making life possible. In my soul i object to gambling but with All sincerity i oppose the ruthless me thefts of eliminating sin. Men who Are vicious in their leadership because of the Power of capital and because of conditions that they a a Mcnally disapprove set out to spread discord among the people of Galveston and in the meantime have sure add unfavourable publicity throughout the country which will Handicap the major portion of our tourist have Given people throughout the country to believe that Galveston is the worst Island on the map. But i say that no City is any better than its people and i certainly a think that the citizens of Galveston a re rated among the Best in America. If these people who Are in their state of being would go to the altar of god and Lake the hot Chip of Fate from their shoulders and reciprocate of righteousness and fairness and Justice toward Mankind they too would Wilt fifty the Here and the greatness in our a people. would choose to maintain the Justice of our existence above selfishness. God bless those whose hearts Are pure. God save those whose souls Are lost. Tour duty to perform thousands of our citizens have assured me of their appreciation of the principles that we advocate and the Good that has been done. For this i am grateful and yet Humble to the extent of my sincerity. This is a credit and Honor that i choose to share with the Good citizens of our City.

Is this Worth your sacrifice and cooperation is this worthy of your consideration if not then we May As Wei hang our colors by the Wayside and perish As Many others have done who received Little encouragement and support. Our White friends have praised our efforts and state that a negro. Newspaper is necessary not Only praised but they have offered arid promised their cooperation. Should they do More for your race than you should they show a greater interest in your future possibilities we would really like to know Hov you a land on this question.
