Another one of those interesting
treasure hunts that are quite popular
in O’Neill was given Sunday evening
by Mr. and Mrs. H. F. Mullen, Miss

the northwestern part of the city.
The winners were Mr. and Mrs.

held on November 2, 1928, at District
No. 51, the Phoenix School, of which
diias Gladys Zinky is teacher. Every
one is cordially invited to attend.
During the summer a 4 H Cooking
Club was organized by the girls of
the community surrounding Amelia
with Miss Faye Sigman as President
and Mrs. Zada Kuss as local leader.
The club contains nineteen members
who meet once a month at the homes
of the members to work out projects
which have been chosen for that
month. Each month’s projects con
tain an average of six recipes which
are studied and demonstrated. The
club has held six meetings. During
this time breads, cakes, rolls, muffins
and other bake goods have been made.
They also hold demonstration days
when the girls bring goods which have
been made from the recipes. The
goods are judged by judges who have
been chosen for this purpose. In
dividual and term demonstration work
is given at this time. The club is
planning on holding an achievement
This and a Sewing Club organized
by Miss Marie N. Gillette in District
No. 218 are the only active 4 H. Clubs
in the county. This club work has
many advantages and is a worthwhile
project in any commuhity. The boys
and girls all through the eastern part
of the state are organized in hundreds
of 4 II Clubs of various kinds and the
boys and girls of Holt county are en
titled to the same advantages as those
in the eastern part of the state. It

they cannot form any other way.

One of the great
by Coolidge to the
cause of good gov
ernment has been
the application of that principle with
sincerity an:l thoroughness.
Such a policy is in happy contrast
to that followed in New York State
under Governor Smith, where during
a period of abundant revenue, we
have seen an enormous debt expan
sion, the breaking down of all wise
pay-as-you-go policies, and the financ
ing of recurring expenditures by bond
The battle for economy In govern
ment is no single dramatic action. It
is a continuing and continuous proc
oss. Nearly all that has been accom
plished in the last eight years could
be offset in the first years of a waste
ill and inefficient administration.
Big John Kennedy, the Tammany
ader in Alfred Lewis’s novel, The
.oss, as ho was about to go into the
etirement of death, said to his pro
ege, “Think first, last and all the
ime of yourself. You may not be of
iccount to others, but you're the whole
ox of tricks to yourself. Don’t give
i man more than he gives you. Folks
.vho don’t stick to that steer land

•‘Herbert Hoover," said Secretary
Josephus Daniels in 1920, "accom

great privilege to be intimately asso

since the armistice. He is a man of
