the “CONVOY NOW" movement

propagandists have many argu

Charley J. Hibben, a retired Nor
folk railroad engineer, has been in
town visiting his nephew, Robert
Hibben. Mr. Hibben is ^9 years
old and says he keeps his good
health by working in his garden
aft Orange, California, every day
aad also playing croquet. He
thinks Washington is a pretty
dizzy place.
New population census figures i
for Washington show tl>at for
every 100 women iii iowh, there
are only 91 men. The biggest
complaint the women have is that
they just can’t find anything to
wear. The store problem is riot
to get the customers but to get
enough merchandise. Clerks are
not polite in Washington, Women
often tip clerks to get a pleasant
smile or a little attention.
For eleven consecutive years, El
mer E. Danly of Hastings, Nebras
ka, worked in the Department of
Justice on one case. The United
States against the Northern Pa
cific railroad. Danly finished that
case recently when the highest
court ruled in his favor. The cast
cost Uncle Sam about $600,000 but
at its termination, Uncle Sam gets
clear title to two million, nine
hundred thousand acres of land
against which the railroad had
some claim; also about $300,000
in money and title to an additic nal
356,000 acres of land which the
railroad turns back to the govern
ment. This Nebraskan was the
only government lawyer who work
ed exclusively on this case which
is considered the most important
case the government has ever had
connected with railroad grants.
The voluminous papers pertain
to thousands of separate tracts of
land which this Nebraskan has to
investigate. The Northern Pacific
land grant was the largest ever
given to a railroad by the govern
ment. It was twice as big as the
one given to the Union Pacific
railroad. It stretches from Lake
Superior to the Pacific Ocean. It
involves the romantic story of how
the government gave the railroad
pioneers the right of way and
each odd section of land adjacent
to that right of way. The United
States versus the Northern Pacific
Railroad is the remarkable story
«f how a Nebraska lawyer labored
for eleven yeafs and won a great
victory for his government. Anoth
er Nebraska lawyer is working in
the Lands Division of the Depart
ment of Justice and is also making
a great name for himself. He is

The Adjutant General tells this
office that reserve officers lists
are closed for the time being. That
is because we now have 117,000
Reserve Officers, a number in ex
cess of the actual present needs of
the service.
Uncle Sam’s treasury statement
of April 14 shows our financial
condition since July 1, 1940 to be!
as follows: expenditures $9,403,- I

The Minority is fighting hard to
cut spending in excess of the re
quirements of actual national de
fense. The battle, however, brings
many disappointments. The other
day there was a bill to authorize
the appointment of another federal
judge in Missouri. The senior
judge there said another judge was
not needed. Two congressmen
from Missouri said another judge
was not needed. On a standing
vote the Minority defeated the bill.
But when the record vote was de
manded and the steam roller
brought in, the voters followed
and the bill passed to create anoth.
er permanent job at big expense
to all the taxpayers.
The Budget Bureau is holding up
the $287,000,000 national defense
highway program. The House
Committee on Roads is ready to
proceed with the authorization
just as soon as the Bureau of the
Budget acts amd the President
transmits his recommendation.
While the road men are very much
interested in this new highway
developement, the National Re
sources Planning board is looking
into the future. Although it is
not generally1 known, members of
this board have been holding fre
quent meetings about what is go
ing to happen in the United States
in years to come. In confidential
conversations they tell friends that
they have a gigantic plan of super
highways which now seems dream
like. They are four-lane highways
similar to the 160 mile Pennsylvania
Turnpike in construction. These
experts feel that when the war is
over, something gigantic has to
be done by way of construction to
give employment to millions of
men who will otherwise be idle.
So, they feel there will be super
highways systematically planned
for all parts of our country. These
highways will be many hundred
feet wide and stretch across our
continent from East to West and
from North to South. If these
planners have their way about it,
miles and miles of decadent prop
erty in big cities will be demolished
and room made for these super
highways. Rome elimination of
decadent property has already
started in New York City where
miles of slums and dilapidated old
buildings are being torn down and
new park ways are being built
through these sections.
Congressman Ross Collins of
Mississippi is by many members
of the House asknowledged to be
the father of the movement to
mechanize and modernize our
Army. Long before the present
war, Collins made repeuted speech
es in the House, demanding that
we immediately modernize our
airplanes, build tanks, and organ
ize mechanical and motorized
divisions. Today, he charges that
we have not yet organized one
panzer division in our army aad
he is going to tell all about it in
the June issue of the “Readers
Centralization of government
functions in Washington and the
resultant volume of travel by gov
ernment officials is now being ex
amine^ The travel bill alone to
carry on the functions of the gov
ernment for this year will reach
to around *160,000,000. That is
why a group in the House today
is fighting for decentralization of
some of these functions in order
to bring them closer to the scenes
of actual operation.
In answer to the question about
oleomargerine used in Federal
Prisons. No butter is served to
the 22,000 Federal Prisoners. Pris
on authorities say the butter sub- j
! stitute is cheaper. During twelve
months in 1940, the Federal Pris
ons bought a total of 324,156
pounds of butter substitutes at a
total cost of $26,803.33. In answer
to the question, ‘who sold that to
Uncle Sam?’ it can be stated that
prison records show the contracts
went to Armour and Company,
Blanton Company, Cudahy Packing
Company, Miami Butterine Com
pany, Southern Margerine Co., Inc.,
Swift and Company, and Wilson
and Co.
The “Buy British” movement

years has been $2j692.80 per year,
so, for more thar. double the
amount of light to be used it will
cost the city only $2.40 more per
year than that paid for the past
five years. The KWH used during
1940 was 46,058 and that to be
used under the new set up will be
94,392 KWH, or an increase of
48.334 KWH,
It seems to us that this is a good
bargain and when the new lights
are installed O’Neill will be one
of the brightest spots in North

Holt County 4-H Clubs
Starting New Year
4-H clubs in Holt county are off
to a good start with a majority of
last year’s clubs and several new
groups already under way. There
are several groups yet planning
to organize as soon as school ac
tivities close. Groups of boys and
girls who are interested in this
type of training should contact
county agent, Lyndle R. Stout,
for assistance. The years activi
ties are just beginning and if your
group is to compete with others
the time is right for starting.
4-H clubs will be called on to do
their share in . national defense
work. This work will give each
boy and girl an opportunity to join
some organization to assist in the
national defepse program.
