A prominent Seward county
democrat has received a letterfrom
the New Deal political organization
asking fo* the names of five per
sons in his community, “willing to
do as they are told” in carrying

The recipient of the letter is an
old time democrat who for years
^.jias followed his own conscience
and instructions to “do as you are
told” did not appeal to him. The
letter went into the waste basket
and the old time democrat is said
to have indulged in a little profan

Intimations are coming from

An admission that the crop reduct

Corn has reached the “roasting

to empty stalks.
This 1936 political campaign is
to be a contest as to which shall

or those who have no property,

going to be of interest in disclosing

A visitor to the great southwest
getting a glimpse of the countless
stacks of hay expressed his concern
as to how it would be got to market

Haying was completed Tuesday
at the Riley place. Mowers will
