NEGROES URGED TOCO-OPERATE Paul Scott on Air With Inventory of His Own Race The future of the Negro will be ecure and fast when the race 'as 5 whole can stand together for a ommon cause and not until then, according to the theory expressed ·n the North Iowa Forum by Paul icott, Mason Cityan who is em- iloyed by the' statehous'e at Des Woines. Mr. Scott complained that mem- lers of his race had never learned he true spirit of co-operation. Mistrust Continues "The laurels the Negro has thus ar gained are only a meager por- ion of what we should have," the peaker declared. "The tradition f mistrust has not been fully removed. Here and there it is still evident . . . And because of this veakness \ve are deprived of many idvantages . . . We have been too hort-sighted, selfish and carefree, efusing to accept the heavy, re- ponsibilities that accompany free- om and liberty. "From a political angle how far have we gone? It it true we can nly get one representative? What bout a congressman? In the cities vhere the Negro population counts excusing those which are disen- ranchised in some of the southern tales) there has been so much ittleness and jealousy that the *fegro has defeated his own oppor- unity to gain places in city, state nd governmental affairs that he ould have if he had the vision of vhat co-operation can do. Don't Support Organization "Are we ready to co-operate for the progress of the race? If so, why do we the Na- ional Association for the Ad- 'ancement of Colored People? thinking of our population between 14 and 15 million, what vould at least 7 or 10 million dol- ars do a year to eliminate the vrongs against our people? Is it done? Far from it. It it were not :or the law abiding and illustrious white people of this coutry who believe in right, this organization would have perished long ago." Mr. Scott closed with an expression of increased hope for Negro people. He declared that the signs were encouraging.

WORLD'S GREAT BELIEVERS, SAYS DR, HELFENSTEIN Leaders Throughout Centuries Christians, Minister Declares Because the greatest intellects of the past and present embraced the Christian faith, lesser minds should find it easy to respond to the challenge of Christianity, Dr. Roy C. Helfenstein declared at the Sunday morning service of the First Congregational church. The minister took for his text Phil 2:11, "Every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God" and Math., 12:30, "He that is not with me is against me." "Not long ago a. questionnaire was sent put to 60 of the world leaders in science, literature, commerce, and industry to ascertain their attitudes toward Christianity," said Dr. Helfenstein. '·Tifly- fpur out of the 60 were found to be members of the church and proud to be known as a disciple of Jesus. "Call the Roll" "Call the roll of the men and women of the centuries who have made the largest contributions to learning and service. Ask who among them are Christians. The world's greatest authors will answer in the affirmative. Milton Shakespeare, Tennyson, Wordsworth, Whittier, Longfellow and Robert Louis Stevenson. The world's greatest philosophers will answer in the affirmative. Kant, Melancthon, S ch I ei m a che'r, Euchen, Bergson, James, Hocking, Jacks. Seth, Mackintosh. The world's greatest statesmen will answer in the affirmative. Washington, Gladstone, Lincoln. Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson Lloyd George, Ramsey MacDonald, "Not a single non-believer has ever yet occupied the White House in our: nation's caintal and no non-believer ever will Every person ought to want to be in fellowship with the geratest minds of the past and the present--those who have thought their way through and worked their way out into the larger life of faith and service. "Every person should be a Christian because of the blessings that Christian faith brings to one's life. Every person should be a Christian because of the blessings that Christian faith brings to the home. Every person should be a Christian because every person belongs to God. Every person ought to be a Christian because no self-respecting person would live in a city where there were no churches and no church people. "Every person should be a Christian because Christ, needs our love and our help. He needs our lives. Every person should be a Christian because Christian faith takes care of the three days of life. It takes care of yesterday, today, and tomorrow,--forgiveness for the sins of yesterday, strength for the tasks of today, and hope for the days ahead. "Brinsr It On" "If anyone has a philosophy of life, a religion, a system of thought, a program of life which offers more than the Christian religion offers to those who sincerely accept it--let'them bring it on But Jesus gave the world the final word on religion--the word that 'God is love' and that 'God is light' and that 'in Him there is no darkness at all.* "Christianity offers 'us the sa- mg power of the Gospel, the directing power of the Gospel and the keeping power of the Gospel. Christian faith alone can give us courage and strength to meet the emergencies of life and to plav our part in the drama of human relationships. Christian faith alone can set our lives in the right direction, and start and keep us on the way that leads home."
