STl'DY CENTER A full time study center has been organized in the county and those who are desirious of securing a part or a whole of the number of college hours necessary for cer tificate renewals may do so. So far as we know now the organi zation will be more or less per manent. All of the work for renewing certificates such as third or second grade certificates may be procured in this manner. Six of the twelve hours credit may be earned thru the study center institute plan, i whereas, the other six hours must be earned in resident attendance. Credits earned in this manner will not be allowed unless the meetings will convene for not lesss than twenty-five hours a week, then it may be termed resident attend ance. We now have a full time director in charge. All those in terested in the course should en roll at once. Clarence J. McClurg, County Superintendent. SOUTHWEST BREEZES By Romaine Saunders Mrs. Harry White was taken to Savannah, Mo., last week for medi cal examination and treatment. William Lierman and family of California are visiting for a week with his mother, Mrs. Hulda Lier man, and other relatives. Doc Townsend has the nerve to do what most everybody has felt like doing when set up as a witness at a “court of inquiry”—walk out on them. Mr, and Mrs. Frank Adamson and children, missionaries on fur lough from South Africa, are at the home of Mrs. Adamson’s per mits, Mr. and Mrs. Harry White. The fellow with a figure re sembling a barrel with posts for legs can’t conceal the crude hulk of his person with the scanty at tire of these hot days. No one could object to suffering citizens at Lincoln spending the hot nights on the state house’s five thousand dollar lawn. We could: accomodate quite a crowd of them down here on the vast reaches of meadow, with a bale of hay for a pillow. Various theories are advanced to account for the prolonged dry spell. One fantastic idea has it the radio is responsible. One theory is prob ably as good as another but nature takes little account of the specula tions of men and rain falls when vapors of sufficient water content form over our heads. The prolonged heat made it nec essary to install more tanks in pastures and corrals to supply sufficient water for thirsty stock. Dealers in nearby towns are about sold out on tanks. Some ranchers have made tanks by shaping two pieces of sheet metal into a circle and making a bottom of clay and sand. Now conies a Cornell university professor and speaks derogatory of General Custer, who with his entire command were butchered by the Sioux sixty years ago. We don’t mind so much the college men trying their funny tricks at Capitol Hill but will have to insist that they let our romantic figures of the west alone. Defenders of the Franklin D. program anchor their strong argu ments on the president’s supposed stablizing of the country’s banks. Banks that kept up their reserve were all right and those that did not went to the wall. It is the re serve funds of business institutions it is the studied purpose of New Dealers to divert into tr.x channels. A refreshing note was sounded at the recent gathering in Cincinnati of the American students volun teers. The word came from some three thousand young Americans gathered from various institutions of learning that they are “not look ing for jobs—we have a message.” Their message is the old one first sounded in old Galilee and probably the need now is as great as ever. Through the courtesy of J. D. Cronin at O’Neill the compiler of the Breezes, now temporarily em ployed at the county seat, spent a day or two at home recently. Mr. Cronin visited the southwest on business and gave us a ride out Friday last. The primative pioneer instinct leads to the enjoyment of placing the feet on the sod after a period of traveling the pavement and cement sidewalks. A Sioux City paper classing itself an independent asks who is backing Landon. It gives its own answer, W. R. Hearst, “the most evil political influence in America.” Four years ago “the most evil political influence in America back ed Roosevelt with the prodidious use of 12 and 72 point caps. But who is backing Landon ? That numerous body of self-respecting, self-supporting, substantial and worthwhile citizens who will not barter away their political heritage for a mess of pottage. Passing from one town to an other by bus I recently fell into conservation with an old fashioned American mother and grandmother. She has ten children of whom she is proud, and also informed me she was a great grandmother in the third degree. She gave me her name as I remember Mrs. Oldecker and her home at Roswell, N. M.. She is 84 and. except for a broken leg that has kept her on crutches for a year is remarkably active and keen witted. She had been in Holt county to visit a sister at Atkin son who she had not seen for over 50 years and at the time of our meeting was on her way back to Roswell. To the multitude she is just an old woman on crutches, to her numerous deecndents she doubtless is held in high regard as mother and grandmother. To me the old lady typifies the best of a vanishing American womanhood. With the fruits of a season’s hard labor destroyed by a merci lessly burning sun, the family, the cows, the poultry and all living things on the farm facing famine it takes the hope, the cheerfulness, the romance and the poetry out of life, with a view into the future of only stark dread if not dispair. Not alone a township, a county or a state is facing it, but the occu pants of the many hitherto splen did farms in many states. Ameri ca has faced calamity always with fortitude and bravery and if a way through is not found it will be the first. MEEK AND VICINITY Mr. and Mrs. Morris Graham and children and Arthur Rouse were callers at the Frank Griffith home on Wednesday evening.

An alfalfa stack burned Satur day evening on the Birmingham place It caused quite a lot of ex citement as it was hard to locate the exact place where the fire was, it being about 10 p. m.

At first they looked like smoke, then as one accustomed their eyes to watching they could easily he seen to movo their wings in rapid flight. Those came from the south east and traveled north and west. Some in this locality saw some fly over at noon. Dick Robertson and Lavcrne Hartford were married at O’Nedl on Saturday and left for a honey moon at Sioux City.
