Upwards of $16,000 remains in
the state treasury from the total
appropriation of $230,500 which the
Nebraska legislature appropriated
last winter to pay its own bills, and
this money will be used, so far as
it will go, toward the cost of the
special session. However, it will
require additional appropriation of
about $20,000 to pay all the ex-j
penses of the present term.
The special session has one dis
tinction—that of having more fe
male members than any term for
! the past decade. There were al
ready two women members of the
house, and a third member is pre
sent in the person of Mrs. Effie
Byers of Hastings. She fills the (
place vacated by the resignation of
McDonald, of Hastings, who took
a job with the WPA.
Burdette G. Lewis, field repre
sentative of the American Public
Welfare association, declares that
old-age assistance in Nebraska will
not cost nearly as much as the fig
ures put out by the Lowell Service
last week would indicate.
New Jersey, he says, having a
population in 1930 of 4,041,334,
which is approximately three times
Nebraska’s 1,337,963, for the years
ended June 30, 1933 and 1934, re
spectively, paid out in old age as
sistance a total of $1,195,607 and
$1,545,453. The total administra
tive expenses for 1933 and 1934
were nine-tenths of one per cent
and eight-tenths of 1 per cent, re
spectively, of these total costs.
For the two year period, the aver
age grant has not varied from $15
by more than 10 cents either way.
Since New Jersey is more of an
industrial state and has more large
cities than Nebraska, Mr. Lewis
says it stands to reason that the
tendency of cost figures will be
lower than they have been in New
Jersey. An effective public wel
fare department in the eastern
state is given credit for the ef
ficient and economical administra
tion of social security there.
Senator Norris and Charles Mc
Cloud copped off the political spot
light during the past week, the
former announcing that he posi
tively would not run for governor
next year. There is a possibility
however, that Norris, for 32 years
congressman from Nebraska under
the republican banner, may seek
re-election on the independent
McCloud, long a republican na
tional committeeman from Nebras
ka, says he is thru with politics.
Robert Simmons or Former Gov
ernor McKelvi* will have his sup
port for the office next year.
Despite the fact there were 7,043
deaths in Nebraska during the first
half of 1935, there were no fatal
ities as the result of airplane
crashes, or from street cars col
liding with automobiles.
Because the state board of con
trol declined to cut the price of
electrical energy furnished from
the penitentiary plant to the capi
tol to less than 2cents per kilowatt,
Land Commissioner Swanson has
switched over to the university
plant and will save about $7,500 a
year for his office.

ers, Somebody in Fremont wants
us to collect matches in every town
and country we visit. Two stamp
collectors want stamps. They tell
us you cafri buy stamp collections
cheaper in Japan than anywhere
else. A lot of letters ask for the
inaugural stamps from the Phil
ippines. They want the envelopes
and stamps sent direct on the day
the new commonwealth of the Phil
ippines is inaugurated. That date
is set for Nov. 15.
Seattle and Puget sound country
is having good business. There are
some vacant buildings but very few
vacant houses. Last year the busi
ness there was at a standstill be
cause of the idbibermnn’s strike.
The strike is now over and the
mills are running overtime. The
gold shipments from Alaska are
helping businessr Business in Alas
ka is good due to the big gold price.
Secretary of War Dern has pre
ceded the party and will join the
party in Manila. General Douglas
MacArthur who has been loaned to
the Phillipine government to train
their new army has also gone on
ahead. Roy Howard of the Scripps
Howard newspaper syndicate is re
ported to have also preceded the
party and may meet them in Japan.
Your Congressman will be sort
of a Rip-Van-Winkle when he ar
rives in the Phillipines. It was
about 30 years ago when he first
: landed in those Islands. The Is
lands have been expensive to Am
erican taxpayers. Japan can sit
on the lower tip of Formosa and
see our Islands. Maybe she wants
them—maybe she don’t. But does
America want to keep them?
Many Americans who have busi
ness in the Islands say America
should keep them. Officers of the
Army and Navy who have had a
lot of fun there say the Filipinos
can never rule themselves and that
eventually they will lose the Islands
if we give them back to the Na
tives. Serious minded Filipinos
say that 300 years of Spanish rule
has taught them modern business
methods and the real meaning of
freedom. They can sing the Star
Spangled Banner in three lan
guages — but they always follow
up with their own national Anthem
in their Tagolog language. Their
flag of three stars representing
their three big islands—the rising
sun and with red white and blue
colors will fly under our own flag.
There’s a new organization being
formed in Seattle and other Pacif
ic towns. It is called “The Cin

for over a year and has elected sev

eral members to the city council.
Talking to one of the members of
this club, he explained it this way:
“The Cincinnatus is a non-polit
ical organization so far as party
is concerned. We have Democrats
and Republicans in our club. It is
an organization for the purpose of
putting hard working, honest men
into public offices. Whenever we
back a candidte for any public of
fice, he or she must give us a
sworn affidavit of all his earthly
goods. We must know just how
much money he or she has when
they enter office. They must also
give us a sworn statement of just
how much money they have when
they leave the public office to which
they have been elected.”
This member of the Cincinnatus
of Seattle says that eventually the
organization will spread to all
parts of the United States and,
when it does most of the city gov- j
ernments will be working for the!
taxpayers and eventually most of
the towns and cities will be on a
self supporting basis and taxpay
ers will be happier.
