George W. Craig
George W. Craig died at his
home in Page on Saturday morning
at 2:30 after an illness of about
one year, at the age of 54 years
and nine days. The funeral was
held last Monday afternoon at 2
o’clock from the Methodist church
in Page. Rev. Leo Carpenter of
ficiating and burial in the Page
Ge#rge W. Craig was bom at
Meadow Grove, Nebr., on April
24, 1887. On April 22, 1908, he
was united in marriage to Miss
Rose Krivanek, the ceremony be
ing performed at Norfolk, Nebr.
Four children were bom of this
union, two sons and two daughters,
who, with their mother are left to
mourn the passing of a kind and
affectionate husband and father.
The children are: Anthony, Page;
Mrs. Dorothy Holiday, Orchard;
Vernon, O'Neill; Mrs. Virginia
Rhoades, Butte, Nebr.
Mr. Craig came to this county in
1913, coming here from Battle

made his home in this county. For

in the resturant business in Page
and had the reputation of running
one of the best restaurants in the
county. He was a man of very
pleasing personality and had a
host of friends in the county who
will regret to learn of his passing.
Early Erost I^ast Fall
Damaged Trees Severely
The full effect of the severe,
cold weather and snow storm last
fall, is just beginning to be ap-1
parent in O'Neill and vicinity, with
the greatest loss to Chinese elms.
In one planting of ten trees in
O’Neill, six are gone, in another
private planting of twelve trees,
ten are tiead, and in practically j
every yard there is one or more,
of some variety, which appears to
have been killed or badly damaged
by the freeze. The loss in fruit
trees is not great here, but the
loss of every tree, whether fruit,
shade or ornamental in this part
of the country, which has suffered
the loss of so many during the
past ten years, because of drouth
and extreme heat, the loss of
even one tree is a tragedy. A great
many of the experts claim that
the sap was still running inside
the tree at the time of the freeze
and this froze, and while there is
still sufficient sap to cause the
buds to swell and even some leaves
to appear the tree is dead.
Some claim that if the roots
are not injured, the tree may be
cut off just below the ground,
and the roots will send out a suck
er, which in time will replace the
original tree. Others claim, how
ever, that the roots themselves
are destroyed, and that the tree
will have to be replaced.
Food For Defense
Program To Be Carried
On In County
Many farm and ranch families
are doubtless wondering how they
may best organize their operations
to meet the demands for commodi
ties needed in the national defense
program. As a result of defense
planning farmers in Holt county,
as well as those in other parts of
the nation, will be asked to step up
production of essential defen <
Through the cooperation of the
local county agricultural agent and
the AAA organization in the coun
ty, farmers will be urged to in
crease production of food through
a food for defense program in
order that the' Hation may be able
to develop the farm family food
supply to insure health and relieve
the commercial production for ex
port as well as provide adequate
supplies for domestic consumers at
a reasonable price.
The food for defense program
will be built around three features:
converting feed into food, grow
ing into livestock and feeding
the family for health. Project
clubs, AAA committeemen and
4-H clubs will be used in distribu
ting information in their usual
manner through their local leader
A concentrated tprogram to con
vert feed into rood by the use of
more efficient feeding of livestock
and the use of disease prevention
methods will be carried out. En
couragement to use all available
feed, equipment and labor was
given by the recent announcement
from Washington that prices on
certain commodities such as hogs,
butter, eggs and chickens, are to
be supported at minimum rates.
Much emphasis is to be placed
on feeding the family for health.
The home garden which will furn
ish an adequate supply of fresh
vegetables as well as enough for!
canning and storage will be en
couraged as essential to health
and national defense. Production
of poultry and dairy products along
with sufficient home butchering
for the meat supply together with
canning, storage and freezing
demonstrations will be carried on.
Throughout the county an effort
will be made to acquaint farm
families with the latest and most
efficient methods of producing
food for defense.
