One member told the house that one ship operator got a million dollars for carrying one pound of mail. Those who voted for the bill gave it out as their belief that un less ships are subsidized there will never be an American merchant marine. About 23 million dollars which would go to the Philippine people as a result of the evaluation of the American dollar was a question de bated in the senate the other day, and the question will soon come be fore the Insular Affairs Committee of the house. The Philippine representatives want these 23 million dollars pretty badly, but the senate defeated an attempt to turn that money over to them. Indications are that the house committee will follow suit. The question has to do with the gold content of the dollar. The Filipinos want the difference. Uncle Sam figures that if American citi zens didn’t get it, and if the gov ernment made a profit on it, the government is entitled to a profit in this country. The islands still belong to the United States and will for the next ten years at least. The seventeen-year locust has arrived in the vicinity of Washing ton. Around Gettysburg the lo custs are seen by the thousands in the vegetation, trees and shrub bery. -— A visit to Gettysburg battle fields Sunday brought acquaintanceship with H. E. Bumbaugh, n licensed battlefield guide, who has conduct ed thousands of people over the 17,000 acres of the battlefield. He tells of guiding a lot of Nebras kans over the battlefield, especially some of those who had relatives in the five Wisconsin units which took part in the terrible fighting which occurred there on July 1, 2 and 3, of 1863. Every grave which can be found on these battlefields will be marked by o flag, and will be decorated with flowers. Thousands of people are planning to be present to view the annual event on Memorial Day. The oldest Lutheran seminary on Seminary Ridge still attracts much attention from visitors to the bat tlefield, as does Cemetery Ridge. The “wheat field”—the field over which Pickett and his men charged to their death—“Blowdly Creek,” and other important places of the battlefields, are now crowded with visitors. David Riser Laid To Rest The following item about the last rites for David Riser is from the Milford, Nebr., paper: “David Riser, who has made his home in Milford community for 20 years, passed away at his home Tuesday following a period of fail ing health. Funeral services were held today at the Milford A. M. church with Rev. Schlegel officiat ing. Burial was in the church cemetery. “David Riser, son of Christian and Kathryn (Boshart) Riser, was bom at W’ellesley, Ontario, Can ada, Sept. 23, 1858, and died at his home in Milford, May 19, 1936, at WOMEN! Pursang Often Aids in Clearing Complexion Helps Build Red Blood Corpuscles and Tones Up Entire System How do yon know your skin can't be white and beautiful? Why take it for granted that you must look sallow and under-nourished? Perhaps you're sim ply run-down — as so many peoole are at this time of year — and need more iron in their blood. We recommend Pursang to you. Pursang is the product of the Mc Kesson laboratories, famous in the manufacture of drugs and medicines for more than a century. It is a scien tific preparation containing organic compounds of iron and copper. These important elements make Pursang an effective hematinic— a builder of hemo globin — the substance which makes red blood corpuscles red. In addition, Pursang contains ingredients that stim ulate appetite, make you enjoy eating more, and make your food worth more to you. If lack of iron in your blood ia drag ging you down — making yoc fee] and look below par — get a bottle of Pursang today. BECKMAN’S DRUG O'NEILL, NEBRASKA a the age cf 77 years, 8 months and 4 days. "At the age of 17 years he gave heart to Christ, was baptized and united with the Amish Men nonite church. In this faith he re mained true until death. His health has been failing for several years and his only desire was to be re moved to his Heavenly home. “On the third day of December, 1882, he was united in marriage to Veronica Ernst. In the year 1886 they moved from Canada to Holt county, Nebr., where they lived until 1916. In 1916 they moved to Milford. This union was blessed with two sons and one daughter, who preceded him in death in their childhood. They have one adopted son, Frank Riser, of Friend. Nebr. He leaves his loving companion, the adopted son, four grandchild ren, one sister, Anna Brunk, of Kitchner, Ontario, and a host of relatives and friends. THE NEBRASKA SCENE by James R. Lowell Governors and various other state officers may come and go, but the first session of the uni cameral legislature will stand out in governmental history. The suc cess or failure of the one house plan will depend to no small degree upon how the first group of 43 legislators conduct themselves. Legislation enacted will to a large degree be reflected by the type of men sent to the one house legislature. Of the 84 men and two women nominated in the prim ary election there are many very good law-makers. The future of the unicameral will largely depend upon the calibre of the 43 persons sent to Lincoln next January by the voters. While the legislators will be elected on a non-partisan ballot and no politics be involved, there are a number of pertinent legislative questions that have already come to the fore and which should and probably will influence the voters’ choice. The public power situation prom ises to be a vital issue in the legis lative election. The father of the unicameral, Senator Norris, is re coginsed as an almost fanatical exfioHbnt of government develop ment of public resources, especial ly power. Candidates may have to take a stand on the issue in the forthcoming election. Interest is focused on the public power question in Nebraska as a result of the injunction suit brot recently by private corporations to prevent the linking of the state’s three big projects. The trial will not be heard before the Nebraska general election in November and in the tricounty area especially the voters will want to know w'hat the unicameral candidates think of pub lic power development. The state wide public power system pending in this state involves a $56,000,000 expenditure. The Nebraska Progressive league, which caters strongly to Norris, already is attempting to force the power issue. Candid ates for the one-house legislature, in order to gain the approbation of the league, must favor municipal ownership and must be willing to vote for the submission of a con stitutional amendment making power a state monopoly. Exponents of public power hope to see such projects developed to the point where in 20 years a 5 per cent tax on power will sup plant school taxes. Representative Ed Lusienski of Columbus, one of the two nominees in the 26th legislative district, says he intends to sponsor a bill in the legislature next January (if he is elected) for the submission of a constitutional amendment making power a state monopoly. He in dicates he will “play ball” with the Progressive League. Another very important question the next legislature will have to decide upon is that of social secur ity. The most important phase is whether old age assistance will be continued in its present form and,, if so, how will it be financed ? Other issues will include ratifi cation of the child labor amend ment, increased appropriation for the state university, and how to lower state governmental expend itures for the next biennium. James G. Mothersead, of Scotts bluff, president of the Nebraska Bar association, declares that the first unfcameral legislature may face “the worst conglomeration of legislation we have ever had that cannot be respected or enforced. "There is always a large group of people who have ideas how to save the world by legislature,” he says. “There are any number of persons who have ideas for legisla tion that they have been trying Ivainly for years to get thru*the two house legislature. With the meeting of the unicameral they are going to get out these ideas, dust them off and try to get them into the form of legislation." Mr. Mothersead contends that legislation is not a law unless it meets with popular approval, or unless the sovereign has the pow er or ability to enforce it. Senator Norris points out that one of the most beneficial aspects of the unicameral will be bringing law-making out into the open. We really have three houses instead of two in the two-house legislative system, he says. The conference committee, in reality, constitutes a third house, according to Norris. The mem bers of this house are not elected by the people and the latter have no choice as to who these mem bers shall be, This conference committee is many times, in very important matters of legislation, the most important branch of our legislature. Th<y;e is no record kept of the workings of the conference com mittee. Its work is performed, in the main, in secret. When a bill passes one branch of the two-house legislature, and passes the other branch in a different form, the matter is referred to the confer ence committee which is arbitrari ly selected by the presiding officers the two branches are under. Taken by and large, the conference com mittee is the real law-making body of our present legislative system. Senator Norris’ contention is that the one-house legislature will serve in itself as a conference com mittee. How to be successful in political affairs altho a republican, is being demonstrated by several young men around the capitol city.

It is unofficially stated that Norris was responsible for this young republican’s success. Now comes James F. Miller, sec retary of the state railyway com mission, who has cast aside his $2,640 a year job for one at $5,600 a year as district director at Kan sas City under the 1935 Motor Car rier act. Miller was a republican candidate for the railway commis sion nomination two years ago, and was city attorney at Alma for two years. It is rumored that a “pro gressive” tendency on Miller’s part led to his advancement in station. BRIEFLY STATED During the month of May, 1936, there were sixty-three new cars and trucks registered in the office of the county treasurer, or more than two a day for each business day during the month. Mrs. John Kersenbrock and son, Jack, drove down to Osmond this morning where Jack expects to put in the summer on the farm of his uncle, getting in trim for the coming foot ball season. John McNally, one of the hust ling farmers and stockmen of the Emmet section, was a pleasant caller at this office last Saturday and extended his subscription to this household necessity. The 1,120 acre Gotleib Reichert ranch south of Opportunity was offered for sale by the referee last Tuesday afternoon. The property was bid in by Christian Reichert, one of the heirs, l'or $5,600, or $5.00 per acre. Mrs. W. P. Hildebrand, and daughter, Helen, of Boston, Mass., arrived in the city Wednesday for a couple of months visit at the home of her mother, Mrs. J. H. Meredith and with other relatives and friends here.

He is the only driver ever to win the race three times, and he has always used Firestone Tires. No tires except Firestone Gum-Dipped Tires could have resisted the terrific heat generated at such high sustained speeds on the hot brick track, lap after lap, hour after hour. You can have no greater proof of blowout protection. Not one of the thirty-three drivers would risk his life on any other tire, for each driver knows that heat is the chief cause of tire failure and blowouts. Firestone cords are soaked in liquid rubber, which saturates and coats every cotton fiber, preventing friction and heat and adding great strength. This is the Firestone patented process of Gum-Dipping, that gives you greatest blowout protection and safety. Profit by the experience of race drivers. Equip your car today with Firestone Gum-Dipped Tires — it costs so little to protect lives worth so much. .
