SUPERVISOR JOB
—
Gibson Has 7 to 5 Majority In Mail
Count. Gillespie Carries
Holt County.
For the office of supervisor of
the Fifth district the unofficial
count gave 600 votes for Gibson,
democrat and 600 for Walters, re
publican. There were 12 mail votes
cast on this office of which Gibson
received 7 and Walters 5. This

this district to fill the vacancy
caused by the death of Ezra Cooke
a little over a year ago. The mail
vote did not make any change in
the other districts.
The mail vote cast at the last
general election in this county was
canvasssed last Saturday. The vote
did not change the totals on the
head of the ticket as Roosevelt re
ceived 73 votes and Landon 73.
Judge Dickson received 91 votes,
while Judge Harrington received
46.
In the vote for representative in
this county, published in The
Frontier last week, the figures
were transposed and Gillespie car
ried the county over Brady. In
the mail vote Gillespie received 84
and Brady 55. The totals for each
candidate are: Gillespie 3,696,
Brady 3,530. The canvassing board

O’Neill High Wins Over
Neligh Gridsters 27 to 6
A large delegation of O’Neillites
went down to Neligh yesterday to
see the O’Neill high school football
team tangle on the gridiron with
Neligh high school. The game was
an interesting one from start to
finish, resulting in a score of 27 to
6 in favor of O’Neill. The local
high school team has not lost a
game this year, and yesterday was
the first time this season that their
goal line has been crossed.
THE NEBRASKA
SCENE
by James R. Lowell
Despite a corn failure and a
major political campaign, Nebras
ka will mark up 1936 as a compar
atively good year, and the people
are facing 1937 with optimism.
Farm income will be higher than
for any year since the depression;
automobile and truck sales, along
with farm machinery, will come
close to the 1929 record; bank clear
ings are reaching new high figures,
and retail sales volume generally
has been the highest since 1930.
For the remainder of 1936 and
for next year, the PWA, WPA and
Rural Electrification administrat
tion will continue to occupy a con
spicuous place in the state’s econ
omic scene.
Construction is likely to start
late this year on a student activities
building to cost in the neighbor
hood of half a million dollars at the
University of Nebraska. PWA
has offered $180,000 to aid in fin
ancing the project.
A PWA grant of $414,000 for
Omaha Municipal university's
building program has been ap
proved at Washington. Meanwhile
the university must scrape up more
than half a million dollars to match
the federal grant, and Nov. 12 was
set as the deadline for acceptance
by Omaha university authorities.
Excavation work has gotten un
derway on the North Loup river
public power and irrigation district
project. The district has a loan
and grant from PWA totaling
about $1,700,000.
Work is to start yet this year
on a $49,850 PWA storm sewer
project at Columbus, while at Au
burn, a bid of $51,225 has been ac
cepted for construction of a new
postoffice.
Bids are being received this
week on contracts for five PWA
projects totaling more than $195,
000 and including a sanitary sewer
and disposal plant at Sargent, pav
ing at Grant, water works improve
ment at Campbell, school improve
ments at Halsey, and a new school
building at Douglas.
Up to this month the Nebraska
WPA had completed 445 projects
at a cost of $4,351,868, and involv
ing 7,249,093 man hours of labor.
Nebraska communities contributed
$1,012,786 of the total cost. Pro
jects calling for construction and
repair of school buildings have
been unimportant part of the WPA
program with 38 such projects com
pleted and 33 now in operation.
Construction of rural power lines
under the REA promises to be one
(Continued on page 4, column 1.)
Cornhuskers Win
The Nebraska university football
team defeated Kansas last Satur
day with a score of 26 to 0. Ne
braska has a great team this year,
but one of their supreme tests
comes next Saturday afternoon
when they entertain Pittsburg on
their home gridiron. Nebraska has
not lost a game on their local grid
iron this year and it looks to us at
this distance that they have enough
to take the Pennsylvanians to a
cleaning Saturday. Outstate will
be pulling for the Nebraska boys.
O’NEILL TO OMAHA
HIGHWAY WILL BE
HARD SURFACED
Plans Call For Bringing Highways
Nos. 20 and 8 In Together On
Lower Fourth Street.
According to plans outlined by
the state highway department the
close of 1937 will'see a hard sur
faced road from O’Neill to Omaha,
I over highway No. 8. When this
road is completed the distance be
| tween O’Neill and Omaha will be
i reduced to approximately 190
miles, compared to 236 between
here and Omaha as it was two
years ago. This will be quite a
saving in time as well as in
gasoline.
As we understand the set-up,
Highway No. 20 will cross the
Burlington at Orchard then west,
and instead of turning north at the
present junction of No. 8, will run
west and northwest and join No. 8
a few miles east of this city and
they will both come into O’Neill as
one road, between the Northwest
ern and Burlington tracks, where
they will join No. 281 to the north
and south. If this route is fol
lowed Page will be a few miles
north of highway 20 and will not
be on highway No. 8, which is being
changed to run west along the
north side of the Northwestern
tracks.
Present plans contemplate pav
ing and hard syrfacing on No. 8
from Oakdale to Meadow Grove,
from Ewing to O’Neill and between
Pilger and Norfolk. This will com
plete a hard surfaced road between
O’Neill and Omaha. The new No.
8 from Ewing to O’Neill, along the
north side of the northwestern rail
way, will shorten the distance be
tween O’Neill and Ewing about
nine miles. The distance was
shortened between O’Neill and Om
aha about nine and one-half miles
during this year. The road was
shortened five mile3 between Ewing
and Clearwater and four and one
half between Norfolk and Wisner.
O’Neill Recreational
Association Formed
An evening of last week the
O’Neill Recreational association
came into being by the action of
several interested and prominent
citizens. The purpose of the organ
ization will make it possible for
young and old to participate in
some activity of their interest.
The executive committee select
ed by the citizens was as follows:
Chairman, Mrs. F. J. Dishner;
Roberta Arbuthnot, Leon Putnam,
Charles Yarnell, Arthur King, Eliz
abeth Gallagher and Elmer Stolte.
By action of the executive com
mittee Art King was selected as
director. The following are some
of the activities that will receive
attention along with others as the
need is felt:
Music, art, hobbies, metal work,
wood work, alabaster work, wood
carving, leather tooling, taxidermy,
recreational games and athletic
games.
Your interest and participation
will be a boost. Help the good
cause along.
Please Get Copy In Early
The heads of civic organizations
are notified that The Frontier is
always glad to give publicity to
anything that will be of benefit to
the people of the county or the
city. But one thing that we must
insist on and that is, that articles
of that character must be in the
office early in the week. When
they are received Thursday noon it
is too late for the paper and we
do not like to publish them after
ten days have elapsed, for the var
ious items lose their news value.
APPRECIATION
I want to thank the voters who
so loyally supported me in the
election, and I will do my utmost to
merit the confidence you have ex
pressed in me.
JOHN A. CARSON.
SPIRITED SIX
The third meeting was called to
order by the president on Thursday,
November Bth. The roll call was
answered by giving the name of
a favorite bird. Bonnie Henifin
was the only absentee. Lloyd and
Bemadine were appointed as a
health committee to inspect the
pupils every morning. Donald and
! Betty were appointed on the clean
liness and orderliness committee.
We are carrying on several group
adventures. We plan to entertain
our parents on patrons day, Friday
the 13th by having a Knighthood
of Youth meeting, and have riddles
for roll call and will elect new
officers for the Club. All our
castles are made and the group
castle is up. Our Good Deeds box
has been decorated in our Club
colors, purple and gold. A pro
gram was given by the girls be
cause they lost in our good English
contest.—News Reporter.
Heating Plant Is In At
Court House and Other
Work Coming Rapidly
Work on the new court house is
progressing rapidly. This week
they installed the heating plant
and had it in operation Wednesday
afternoon. A large stoker run
with electric power feeds the coal
into the furnace, and in this man
ner they will be able to keep uni
form heat at all times. There will
be a considerable saving in heating
bills as they will be able to burn
much cheaper coal with a stoker
than they could if they had to
shovel the coal into the furnace.
The windows are being painted
and calked. Workmen are here
for the installation of the terrazzo
floors, starting work on the bases
today.
H. R. Mueller, of St. Louis, Mo.,
arrived in the city Wednesday and
will install the new cells in the jail
on the top floor. One of the cells
will have ten bunks and the other
large cell will be the exercise room
for the prisoners in the day time.
Mr. Mueller is a representative of
the manufacturers of the cells, and
he came here from Chadron where
he just finished installing cells in
their new court house there. He
said it would take him ten days to
complete the work here.
Salvation Army Funds
Being Collected Here
Capt. Alexandra Martin, state
representative of the Salvation
Army, is in O’Neill in connection
with the annual appeal for its
state work.
The Salvation Army Maternity
Home and Hospital, located in
Omaha, serves the entire state of
Nebraska in caring for unfortun
ate girls. Last year 107 girls
passed through the home. Up to
July 31st 99 girls. Funds received
locally at this time will go to the
maintenance of this institution in
its humatarian service. Captain
Martin hopes that a generous res
pose will be made by the people of
this city.
Blue Jays Near Triumph
J. D. Cronin and Gene O’Hein
returned Sunday from Omaha
where they had gone to attend the
Creighton university annual home
coming and witness the football
game between Creighton and Mar
quette. Marquette is one of the
strongest teams of the country
this year and the Creightonites
did not believe they had. a look in
prior to the game. What was the
astonishment and joy of the home
comers to see the Blue Jays hold
the celebrated Marquette team to
a 6 to 7 score, the winning margin
being a goal kick after touchdown
that the Creighton team fell down
on and that Marquette made good.
While the Creighton boys were de
feated they covered themselves
with glory and. their defeat at the
hands of this celebrated team was
as good as a victory over any other.
The local representatives say they
never saw a better football game
played anyplace and are loud iin
their praise of the Creighton team
of 1936.
Turkey Roasting
It won’t be long now until
Thanksgiving and with the coming
of the Holiday season thoughts of
most Holt county housewives are
turning toward the most favorite
of all foods at this season of the
year—the turkey. Plump, juicy
and golden and ready for the car
ver’s knife, the bird will again
adorn the tables this year.
Every hosewife is interested in
getting the turkey roasted to the
highest degree of perfection. A
low and constant temperat"re of
300 to 350 degrees is best to insure
good results. There is less shrink-!
age at this temperature and the
meat is juicy and has a better
flavor. Young birds cook in less
time than "more tougher” meat
while a larger bird requires some
what fewer minutes per pound
than a smaller one. Moderately low
cooking temperatures produce a
juicy product with the minimum
shrinkage. Housewives will find
that the turkey should be brushed
with unsalted fat. This protects
the skin and gives it a golden crisp
ness—so important on Thanks
giving, adding to the holiday spirit.
The turkey may be placed on a
rack in the roasting pan, left un
covered and roasted slowly until
the right degree of doneness is
reached.
In timing the roasting of the bird,
approximately 22 to 25 minutes per
pound (before drawn) should be al
lowed. Favorite stuffing may be
made and the turkey stuffed the
day before Thanksgiving in order
to save time.
Will Hold 4-H Poultry
Show Here Nov 21st
The second annual 4-H Poultry
Show will be held in O’Neill at the
K. C. Hall, Saturday, Nov. 21.
Over 100 members will groom their
best toms, hens, cockerel and pul
lets to vie with each other for val
uable prizes. Members themselves
will ocmpete in judging and dem
onstration contests.
Turkeys in the show will be for
sale by club members for breeding
purposes or for Thanksgiving din
ners immediately after they have
been placed by the judge. J. H.
Claybaugh from the agricultural
college will officiate as judge.
Couyote Hunt Postponed
The coyote hunt scheduled for
Saturday, November 7, was post
poned on account of unfavorable
weather until Saturday, November
14. Everyone interested in par
ticipating is requested to assemble
at the Cleveland church and be
ready to start promptly at !t:00
o’clock in the morning. Rifles will
j be barred but shotguns of all gauges
will be permitted. For further de
tails get in touch with Mahlon
Shearer, Stuart, Nebr., or Agricul
tural Agent, F. M. Reece O’Neill.
New Chevrolet Showing
Draws Large Audience
The new Chevrolet car was
placed on display at the Chevrolet
garage here last Saturday morn
ing. Manager Lundgren said that
there were at least 1,000 people in
the garage Saturday to inspect the
new car and about 400 more on
Sunday. The style and appearance
of the new car seems to catch the
fancy of the motoring public and
many were the favorable comments
heard about this new Chevrolet.
The Miller Bros. Chevrolet com
pany delivered four new cars on
Saturday and Sunday and have
orders on hand for a dozen more as
soon as the curs are received. From
the unanimous acclaim with which
the new car was received it looks
as if the coming year would be the
most prosperous year in Chevrolet
history.
New Drug Store Opened
The Johnson Drug store opened
up for business lastSuturday morn
ing. While it was not a very nice
day Mr. Johnson says they enjoyed
a splendid business and that hun
dreds of people visited their store
during the day, and many of them
were purchasers. Mr. Johnson
says that he has always heard that
O’Neill was one of the best towns
in the state and that he is now con
vinced of that fact, from the crowd
he had Saturday and the merchan
dise sold, in the face of a very in
clement day. Had the day been
nice and warm he said he would
have had a hard time taking care
of the customers who would have
attended the opening.
New Bridge Completed
The new cement bridge across
the old bed of the Elkhorn south
of this city has been completed and
traffic is now running over the
bridge. The new bridge is one of
the nicest across the river in this
section of the state. Workmen are
engaged in erecting the bridge
over the new river bed, but have
been held up waiting for steel and
other material. It is figured that
the work will be completed within
two weeks.
1 VETERANS OBSERVE
ARMISTICE DAY WITH
APPROPRIATE RITES
Parade, Program, and Lunch For
Ex-Service Men Principal
Features of Day.
A large crowd of ex-service men,
their relatives and friends were in
the city Wednesday to help the
“boys of 1918” celebrate properly
the 18th aniversary of the termin
ation of the great conflict, and they
all had a good time.
Shortly after 10 a. m. the parade
started from the corner of Sixth
and Douglas and marched west on
Douglas, disbanding about Second
and Douglas. The parade was
headed by the O’Neill School hand
of 00 pieces, followed by about a
dozen of the boys who were in the
great conflict. Then the pupils of
the O’Neill public schools and of
St. Mary’s Academy.
We stood on the corner of Fourth
and Douglas and several strangers
there witnessing the parade all re
marked at the number of school
children. It was a wonderful
sight as these future rulers of this
city marched along, all happy in
being able to strut along the street,
behind the band, 'and with the
plaudits of the crowd along the
sidewalks ringing in their ears.
There were between 900 and 1,000
school children in the parade.
The program at the h. C. Halt
started about 11 a. m. and the
hall was packed, hundreds unable
to gain admittance. Prof. Roy W.
Carroll presided at the meeting in
the hall and the following program
was rendered:

Prior to the address of Earl J.
Moyer, Prof. Carroll introduced
| Julius D. Cronin, an old friend of
the visiting attorney, who, in a
1 few well chosen remarks introduced
the speaker of the day. Mr. Moyer
j is one of the leading atorneys of
northeastern Nebraska and deliv
ered a very able address. He was
a former State Vice Commander of
the American Legion ana lor sever
al years has been a member of the
Veterans of Foreign Wars.
He spoke of how the boys went
to war to make the world “safe
for democracy” and then spoke of
the bitter struggle in several of the
foreign countries where dictators
are ruling the people of several
nations. Mr. Moyer made a
splendid address and the packed
hall listened with close attention
to his address and roundly applaud
ed him at its conclusion. Mr. Moyer
made u decided hit here and should
he ever again return to this city
to deliver an address on any topic
he will be sure of a large audience.
After the exercises at the hall
the service men and their guests
marched to Bauman’s cafe where
a luncheon was served to 150. Dur
ing the luncheon several recitations
were delivered and some of the
performers made a decided hit
with the assembler! Legionaires
and their guests.
Practically all the business
houses of the citiy closed at 11
o’clock and remained closed for the
balance of the day.
Miss Jean Burgess entertained
several of her little girl friends at
her home last Saturday afternoon,
the occasion being her eighth birth
day. The little folks attended a
show in the afternoon, then had
lunch at Joan’s home and were en
tertained with various games dur
ing the rest of the afternoon. The
little folks had a very enjoyable
time.
