HIGH SCHOOL PUPILS
VOTE THEIR PREFERENCE
FOR FUTURE LIFE WORK
Of one hundred fifty-six students
in the O’Neill high school asked to ex
press a choice of their life’s work but
one would be a politician. And even
this one does not care to devote much
preliminary* work to a pilitical career.
He wants to be a congressman right
off the bat. Many politicians of state
and national reputation have made
their start in O’Neill and it may be
that the lone political aspirant has it
figured out that by starting well ifp on
the scale as a congressman the presi
dency eventually may come his way.
With the other one hundred and fifty
five however politics apparently is not
much more attractive than the clergy
or the newspaper profession, for none
expressed a preference for these.
Twelve boys and one girl in the high
school, not included in the 156, ex
pressed no preference at all and from
these a couple of more politicians may
develop and perhaps a clergyman and
a journalist, or even a plug reporter.
“What is your choice of life work?
If you have not decided the matter,
what is your preference now?” was
the question submitted to the school.
Eight of the girls would like to be
stenographers, 45 teachers, 5 nurses,
5 musicians, 1 a movie actress, 1 an
elocutionist, 1 an author, 1 a doctor of

The organization of the 68th Cong

The opposition to the election of
Speaker Gillette, was directed in no
way against him personally, his quali

the Nelson group by preventing his
election, hoped to secure certain con
It develdped during the voting that
the Nelson group demands were not
as originally given to the press, but
they asked only that they be given
an opportunity to offer amendments
to, and debate the rules under which
the House conducts its business. It
also was made known that the Re
publican leaders had contemplated
amendment and liberalization of the
rules, which would allow the progres
sives the opportunity which they
asked. When the situation became
known, the House majority elected

The public generally is of the
opinion that the parties elected to
Congress in November, 1922, became
members March 4, 1923. This is not
the case. The members of the present
Congress, took their oath of office, De
cember 5, 1923, before which time they
were members-elect. Thus thirteen
months expired between the election
and induction into office. Five months
only remain until Nebraska primaries
and eleven months unitl a general elect
ion. The unfairness of this situation
both to the members elect, and the
country, is apparent. The Senate last
year passed a bill correcting this
situation, but it failed to reach a vote
in the House. It will be again pro
posed this year, with very good
chances of passage.
As a result of the contest between
Representative Graham and Long
worth for Floor Leadership, an agree
ment was reached, which gave the
leadership to Mr. Longworth, who is
well qualified as a parliamentarian for
the position. His work and policies,
and the order* of considering legisla
tion, will be directed by the steering
committee, which, by said agreement
in this Congress, is to be composed of
seven members, four of whom are to
come from agricultural state. Thus

Real News Paramount
In the country newspaper, sensations, scandals—the recording
of human misery—is almost taboo. At least it certainly is sec
ondary to the printing of real news about people and things.
For the province of the country paper—your HomeTtAvnPaper
—is to give community interests first place, printing the more or
less sensational personal items only when necessary to keep faith
with subscribers who pay for ALL the news. /
