The "lamb triumphs over the

March we arrive unruffled for our

which our diligent leaders, Mrs.

clatter of tack hammers and ton
gues we finished the lesson and bade
good bye to our smiling hostess,
Mrs. George Rector.

Third District Youth
Selected for Annapolis
Nominations to fill a single va
cancy at the United States Naval
Academy accredited to the Third
congressional district of Nebraska
have been sent to the Chief of the
Bureau of Navigation, Navy De
partment. as follows;
Principal, Thomas Malone, Mad
ison; First Alternate, Dale Malison,
Clarks; Second Alternate, Ray
mond Rabeler, Leigh, and Third
Alternate, Robert B. Short, Nor
These nominations have resulted
from a competition which was con
ducted under the auspices of the
Civil Service commission, Dec. 12,
1936. Several weeks prior to that
time, Congressman Stefan had pub
licly announced the existence of a
vacancy at the Naval academy thru
out the district and had invited the
filing of applications by interested
rorty-sjx young men, all legal
residents of the district, took the'
examination in the full understand
ing that the nominations would be
based solely upon the results of the
examination. In other words, that
the nominations would go to the
men earning the highest grades.
The nominations that have now
been made have gone to the four
men that earned the highest grades
in the competition in the precise
order of their relative standing.
A newspaper editor is something
like a preacher. He can go along
doing pretty well for months and
nobody pays any attention to him.
But if he makes one mistake—then
he gets plenty of criticism.
“Spending" is W ashington Slogan
Letters from home indicate that
some of these young men and wo
men drawing $1,200 to $1,600 a year
ought to save a little money or
send a little money home to the
folks who are down and out and
need relief. But these young peo
ple say that under the Washington
racket where every merchant
makes it “easy” for them to “buy”
and to “charge" and where every
thing is so high in price a great
majority of these young people are
broke and many have to borrow a
few dollars “until pay day” from
their fellow workers. The govern
ment pays twice a month. Payday
is sure, here. Most of the money
goes to the Washington hotels,
rooming houses, hoarding houses
and to the merchants. “Spending”
is the Washington slogan.
Debt Burden Foundation for
The House, without a record vote
passed the $121,177,000, appropria
tion bill for the Justice, Commerce
and Labor departments. There was
not an audible vote against the bill.
Some old time members say the
amount was “too small to make a
fuss over.” Members, however, are
beginning to discuss finances and
debts and members of both parties
are starting to make speeches on
the debt and money question. The
government's debt burden is grow
ing by leaps and bounds. Talks on
“economy in government” expendi
tures are scheduled for next week
by some leaders on both sides.
Members gather into small groups
occasionally these days and discuss
the stock market and the bond
market. Some attention is given
to the fact that government bonds
show some decrease these days.
That brings up talk that more in
flation is coming. There is also
talk that deflation is due. None of
the so-called “money” experts agree
but most of the liberals in the
House tell each other that inflation
is on the horizon and that about
the best thing in the world to own
is a farm or a house and lot or
Easter in Washington
The House adjourned over the
week-end becnuse there wasn’t any
thing for members to do. The
weather here is beautiful. Jonquils
and other flowers are in bloom.
Many members who live near
Washington went home for Good
Friday and Easter church services.
A lot of people were at Arlington
cemetery for the sunrise services
which many officials and members
of the White House family attend
ed. The churches were practically
out of available seats for Easter
services as usual. The annual egg
rolling contest on the White House
lawn was arranged for. Washing
ton makes a great display of Easter
festivities and about the same
things are done here as at home
except on a larger scale and by
people who have a lot more money
with which to put on these displays.
The Easter parade of clothing is
one of the high lights in these pro
grams and for weeks the stores
were jammed with men and women
buying Easter finery. The civic
centers here and some of the chari
table organizations continue crowd
ed with penniless and jobless men
getting free coffee and lunch.
Tourist Season Opens
The warm weather is bringing
into town thousands of tourists.
Young people in many busses are
unloaded at the various places of
historic interest and the guides and
souvenir salesmen are starting
their busy season. The kodaks are
in use agt <*. with the arrival of
sunshine, and employees are every
where taking snapshots.
Appropriate .Money for Insert
Before adjourning for the week,
the House favorably accepted the
House and Senate conference re
port on appropriations for insect
control. This carries two million
dollars and will give the depart
ment authority to use any unex
pended balances for this purpose.
The grasshopper control commit
tees will soon be busy with the
county committees. Many letters
from county agents have been re
ceived making inquiries as to when
funds will be available for grass
hopper eradication. The bindweed
eradication money is in the “nox
ious weed” bill which the house
War veterans will be pleased to
hear that the House yesterday
passed and sent to the Senate a bill
which will restore the benefits to
about 2,000 world war veterans
who are sick with paralysis, pare
sis, blindness or bedridden, not
withsanding the“misconduct” ques
tion which has often been raised. In
the 1933 economy act, these bene
fits had been removed. Members
of the veterans committee, especial
ly John Rankin, the chairman, feel
that this new bill will aid many
veterans who have been unjustly
treated. Rankin, who comes from
Mississippi, is one of the staunch
est friends the veterans have in the
house. He plans to introduce an
other bill if the present one does
not take care of many veterans
who have suffered as a result of
the 1935 Act. The House unan
imously joined Rankin in his pre
sent fight to help these sick World

“Your office would be a non
existent one, and you would be un
able to take and hold the office.
You would be an officer without an
office, and you could not draw salary
from the state.” This is part of an
opinion rendered by the attorney
general’s office at the request of
Leo Swanson, then land commis
sioner, on Sept. 6, 1935, and just
released by Attorney General Rich

William Wright after Swanson had
asked, before election, what his
status would be in case his office
were abolished at the election.
