L. W. Berry, in a feeble state of health all summer, was able to get out election day last week and cast his ballot. The southwest has furnished an other trio in crime for judicial dis position. Not that this community is more lawless than others, merely that Constable Sigman is more vig ilent than many functionaries in chasing down the light-fingered gents. Mr. and Mrs. Tom Baker attend ed a cattle sale at Columbus last Thursday when a large number of Short Horn sires were sold. They bought a lO-months’-old calf with the blue blooded pedigree tracing back to the famous ones of the breed. They arrived home some time after midnight with their pur chase. Work began Monday in an ef fort to eradicate the bumps and holes on the road passing the Van Lorn place. The work is being done at the expense of Wyoming town ship and is in the hands of men and horses of the neighborhood. The three A program may de posit a little cash in the pocket of the boss on the farm that he hasn’t earned, but it helps the unemploy ment situation not a bit. If half of the seven million farms in the Un ited States are lined up with the crop and stock reduction scheme ^ they get along with some three million fewer hired men. Feeling- that he was more a vic tim of circumstances than crimin ally inclined and that the ends of justice would be as well served thereby a number of substantial citizens of Swan and Wyoming signed a petition to the presiding f judge to parole to his father young Baker, convicted in district court at O’Neill last week on a charge of complicity with others in purloin ing a bunch of wool. The outcome would indicate there was no at tempt to pull the wool over the eyes of anyone. Two white horses threatened to involve a citizen Monday in a horse thief law suit. The horses strayed away last week from Raymond Bly’s home and wandered into George Withers’ barn yard. Mr. Bly learned of their whereabouts, being informed that he need not in convenience himself to come after them as the horses were doing no damage and he could get them when he could get around to it. Sunday a third person spoke to Mr. Bly about using the horses in husking corn, Bly claiming he did not give his consent. At any rate, the one wanting to use the horses went to the Withers place and got them and had them on road work Monday.

THE NEBRASKA SCENE (Continued from page 4.) has been in political life rather regularly for more than a decade. Special Session Side-Lights A member of the house of repre sentatives who helped while away the time during the regular ses sion by taking frequent nips from (a then) illegal bottle of spirits frumenti, spent just 10 days with the special session. Then with his $100 and travel expenses in his pocket he hied himself home. In cidentally, there probably is only one representative district in the state w+iere his actions would be countenanced, but the people in that district rather enjoy him and would elect him to the unicameral legislature if the district were big enough. While members of the legisla ture were pinching pennies and eating in hamburger joints during the last days of the session, em ployees of the two houses were wreathed in smiles. Your corres pondent heard a mixed quartet singing “I Won’t Go Home Until Morning” somewhere in the state house a few days ago. Upon trail ing the sound, it was discovered to come from a mimeograph room. A high leader of the democratic party in the state who naturally refused the use of his name in print, stated confidentally that the last two-house group of legislators is the worst in his memory. Of course there are many fine legislators in the bunch,” he said, “but the majority are the bunk. They don’t know apple butter from et cetera. I used to oppose the unicameral idea, but I ve come to believe it will be a blessing. At least it can’t be any worse than what we’ve got. I honestly believe that each legislature has been worse than it predecessor since the state was born.” Director W. B. Banning of the state department of agriculture and inspection gave his office help a real scare recently when he de veloped a nose-bleed that wouldn’t stop. He became so weak that they had to lay him on his back and send a rush call for a doctor. It later was ascertained that an old fashioned nose blowing had broken a small blood vessel. : —>1 --- r— -.!»■ BRIEFLY STATED Sidney R.

Henry Ford announced his intention to build a million Ford V-8s in 1935. We are pleased to re port that this goal was reached in exactly ten months instead of a full year. One million cars and trucks is an im pressive total. But figures by themselves mean nothing. It is what they represent that counts. Selling a V-8 at a low price has brought a new kind of automobile within reach of the people. Producing it has provided steady work for hundreds of thousands of men in the Ford plants, in associated industries and on the farm. These million Ford V-8 cars and trucks have helped to make things better all around. In the first ten months of 1935 the Ford Motor Company paid out, in the United States alone, $140,119,326.00 in wages and $523,111,389.00 for materials. FORD MOTOR COMPANY BUILDER OF PORD.
