An excited brother with a decid
ed aptisan ego up in old Grattan
wrote me a letter the other day to
which he did not sign his name.
It reminded me of the story told of
Horace Greeley. At one time open
ing his mail on April 1 he found
an envelope containing a sheet
upon which was written “April
Fool.” Mr. Greeley said that was
the first letter he had ever re
* ceived to which the wrriter signed
his name but forgot to write the
A considerable slice of Nebras
ka’s good corn ground was aban
doned to weeds this season. Greeley,
Howard, Hall Hamilton, Adams,
Lancaster and others had a very
good growth of fodder, but little
’ or no corn. The Platte at Grand
Island is as dry as the roads. Ir
rigation farther up the river is
absorbing the water, leaving the
middle and lower Platte valley
without the natural advantage it
formerly had with a full volume of
water in the river bed, which must
eventually impoverish that section.
Hastings is in high whoops over
the tri-county project to construct
a reservoir for storage of winter
and spring flood supply of water
which is to be used to irrigate,
leaving the lower Platte valley still
less water. A aspect of
neglect and deprecWtmg buildings
and property on the farms in these
counties is apparent. The North
Loup carries a good volume of wat
er and along its meandering course
is a rather better picture. R. S.

thru an extra tax on gasoline, as
there was nothing in the supreme
court decision to prevent the use
of that form of tax if properly
levied and appropriated.
Meanwhile, there are plenty of
willing hands rejidy to take the
fund, nearly $1,000,000 piled up by
the overthrown one-cent levy. A
group of gasoline dealers as well
as a group of truckers signified
their willingness in this respect,
and even have glihe so far as to
press their claim^by taking them
2. Changes in the Cone public
official bonding monoply bill which
is being assailed in the courts.
3. Making a specific appropria
tion of gas tax funds on fuel used
in aircraft for use of the state
aeronautics commission. State Aud
itor Ayres has ruled that funds for
this purpose were not properly ap
propriated by the legislature.
4. Clarification of $45,000 ap
propriation for defense of North
Platte water rights which has be
come a court issue.
5. Action on request from the
railway commission for authority
for the commission* to collect fees
to pay cost of licensing commercial
trucks and enforcing proposed rules
0. Appropriation to the nation
al guard which spent nearly $40,
000 after the last legislature ad
journed, in connection with the
Omaha strike, the Republican river
flood, and the Mitchell irrigation
district water war.
7. Passage of laws enabling
Omaha and Douglas county to par
ticipate in the WPA program by
use of the county’s share of the
regular 4-cent gasoline tax and its
share of the automobile registra
8. Clarification of the law
passed by the last session setting
up a real estate bureau, for which
funds were not legally appropriat
ed, it was found last week. Sec
retary of State Swanson already
has named the state real estate
commission, but the state auditor
says he cannot legally draw war
rants on the fee fund (derived
from a fee to be paid by real estate
agents and brokers.)
9. Possible amendments to the
O’Brien old age pension law of Ne
braska (193B session). Incident
ally Pension Commissioner B. F.
Perry and his four office helpers
have had their pay cut off as the
result of the court decision over
throwing the state assistance acts,
which, in turn, was the result of
the legislature’s neglect to make a
specific appropriation in the bien
nial budget bill.
10. Possible hiking of salaries
for heads of state departments,
following upon the supreme court
decision late last week, throwing
out the 1933 salary reduction act
which affected constitutional of
fipers of the state.
There has been some talk that
Nebraska does not have a legisla
ture to call into special session,
since the unicameral legislature
laws went into effect in August,
j Attorney General William Wright
says, however, that the state’s law
making body still is the bi-cameral
legislature and will continue to be
| until January 1, 1937, when the
unicameral assembly takes office.
