On The Sidelines
Last Sunday afternoon the
O’Neill Shamrocks turaed hack
their first foes of the season in a
practice game with the Waymans
team. Their blows were well
placed and gave them a 9-1 decis
ion. Most serious handicap seems
td'be in the pitching staff, with
but very few hurlers and those
not able to deliver a lot.
The rest of the infield seems
pretty well taken care of with a
few of the younger boys aroundi
town holding down the posts.
It has been rumored that the
Tri-State Hachery will sponsor a
baseball team this year and will
appear in new uniforms and play
about the same schedule as the
Shamrocks. First practice was to
have begun last Tuesday.
Last Saturday the State-wide
Recreation Marble Championship
of the State of Nebraska got un
der way with our representative
from O’Neill, J. R. Barnes not
present, as there seemed to be no
transportation to Lincoln. This
fact didn’t even make J. B. feel
sorry for himself as he still has
five more years to compete in the
Senior Division and he thinks that
in that time he should win the
State Championship or at least
come pretty close.
As the closing of school draws
near, the sports of the schools
also draw to a close and next;
week, the curtain is on it’s way
down, when the State Track meet
begins in Lincoln. Of the many
schools participatig only one
school from this section of the
state is sending more than one
representative and that seems to
be Atkinson who is sending a four
man team to compete in the
state Carnival. Those are Tut
McKee, Scotty Schulz, .Tack Hey
ing, and Pock.

Walter Warner was born in
O’Neill, Nebraska, on April 28.
1891. He was the son of Mr. and
Mrs. Zebedee Warner, who were
pioneers of the county. Walter
grew to manhood in this city and
on the old farm northwest of
O’Neill and after graduating from
the High School he atended a
business college in Omaha. Coming
back to his old home early in 1911
with his father and brother, Roy,
they entered the furniture and
implement business in the city, in
the building that formerly housed
one of the oldest hardware stores
in this section of the state. He
continued in active business here
until December, 1932, when the
building and contents were de
stroyer! by fire. About six months
later he left here and had since
made his home at Kearney, Nebr.,
and in Custer county.
On December 20, 1916, he was
united in marriage to Miss Martha
Belle Pendergast, the ceremony be
ing performed in this city. To
this union three daughters were
bom, all of who, with their mother,
are left to mourn the passing of
a kind and affectionate husband
and father. The children are:
Dorothy Helen, Gloria Frances and
Carolyn Joan. He is also survived
by four brothers and two sisters.
They are: Roy, Newport, Elmer,
Chambers, John, Atkinson, Fred,
Omaha, Mrs. Alvin Stebens, Rock
lin, Calif., and Mrs. Louis Jaggert.
Walter Warner was an upstand
ing young man. He was one of
O’Neill's active business men for
several years and during most of
that time the hardware, implement
and furniture store of Warner &
Sons was one of the largest busi
ness institutions in the county, do
ing an exceptionally large business.
He had an extensive aecpiaintence
over the county and was univers
ally well liked for he was an agree
able and affable young man. He
had many friends over the county
who were shocked to learn of his
death, as it was not generally
known that he was ill. His family
and other relatives have the sym
pathy of the community in their
hour of sorrow'.

O’Neill Boy Gives
Impressions Of Army Life
Dear Mr. Cronin:
Feeling that there might be a
slight difference between the life
of a soldier in 1941 and 1917, I
will write you a few lines for the
A soldier’s day starts at 5:45 in
the morning (on the dot), when a
lot of sleep-weary boys wish they
were home, (I for one), so they
could let the call go unheeded.
One thing about home, there were
no K. P. duties or other details to!
be handed out, a- the higher-ups
saw fit. The army doesn’t make
you do anything, but before every
thing is settled, you wish you
had done it.
The week days from Monday
morning to Saturday noon are j
spent in marching and drilling:

but if over-done can become very
Shoes in the infantry seem to
catch the hardest use. About two
weeks and soles are ready to be
discarded, but it seems as if there
is an endless supply of them. Oth
er ar ticles of clothing are issued as
they are needed. One part of camp
life I can sincerely say is that
most of the boys don’t like doing
their own laundry. Although the
government takes care of the bed!
linen, and the wool shirts have
to be sent to the dry cleaners.
Such articles as socks, handker
chiefs, underwear and towels are
generally done by the boys them- i
seves, for you know that one can’t
live too high on $21.00 a month,
and having your laundry done
elsewhere is somewhat of a luxury. |
From Saturday noon to Monday
morning can be spent as the soldier
sees fit. Some of the boys spend
their time in town while others
generally do their laundry. These
two days seem to be the longest of
the whole week. Saturday morn
ing is a bad moment in itself,
for the weekly inspection takes
place. The tents must be scrubbed
clean and dusted. Rifles must also
pass inspection and a complete
bunk display shown. This con
sists of all the equipment a soldier
takes into action with him.
The weather here is generally
mild, although the first few days

tents. Today is windy and pretty
hot. If you think the dust blows
in Nebraska you should be here
today. Trees are all leaved out
and everything is green and in
bloom but I, for one, say there is
no place like Nebraska.

A Tribute To
Mrs. Joseph Maring
This locality was shocked when
the first news came through our
local paper that Mrs. Joe Maring
passed away very suddenly aftet
a short illness. It shows how
isolated some of us rurals are. The
Murray family moved here from
Colfax county in the spring of
1897 and rented the J. P. Mullen
farm four miles north of Emmet
where they resided for one year
and in the spring of 1898 they leas,
ed the old Dennis Kelly place,
known as the Slocum post office.
Later on, about 1900, they pur
chased the place, that consisted of
320 acres and it was considered an
exceptional good buy, through Mrs.
Katherine Hynes and a daughter
of Mr. Kelly,* and they have con
tinued to live here ever since. Miss
Nellie taught school for several
years prior to her marriage in 1900
and was considered very success
ful in her profession. About this
time they purchased the Ash land
in Rock Falls township. Later oh
they added gnother quarter ad-,
joining making a very commod
ious ranch. Trail blazer leaders
they devoted their years, among
other things, to the perseryation
of good will among their neighbors
of all<creeds. For their tolerance
and gotki will and charity among
theh’ neighbors we take pleasure
in doing our small part in honor
ing the memory of the late Mr.
and Mrs. Joe Maring, who richly
A Friend, Ed.
Hallie Belle Myer
Mrs. Hallie Belle Myer died at
her home in Inman lust Friday
afternoon at 3 o’clock after an ill
ness of about two years of a
paralytic stroke, at the age of 53
years and three months. The fun
eral was held last Sunday after
noon from the Methodist church
in Inman, Rev. Maxcy officiating

Hallie Belle Waters was born at
Widna, Wisconsin, on February 3,
1888. On December 27, 1905, she
was united in marriage to James
B. Myer at Washoda, Kansas. To
this union twelve children were
born, eleven of whom are living,
nth the father to mourn the pass
ing of a kind and affectionate wife
and mother. The children are:
Mrs. Floyd DeLong, O’Neill; Mrs.
Belle Cunningham, Page; Mrs.
Gilbert Noring, Inman; Mrs
Merle DeLong, O'Neill; Melvin
Myer, Inman; Mrs. Peter Weber,
Inman; Mrs. Ralph Burival, Deer
Island, Oregon; Mrs. George Stull,
Atkinson; Donna, Charles and
Robert, at home.
Mrs. Myer came to this county
with her family in 1916, coming
here from Orchard, Nebr. For
several years they lived on a farm
north of this city but about a year
ago moved to Inman where she
made her home up to the time of
her death. She had a large num
ber of friends in the country north
i of this city, where she was well
i known and they will regret to
i learn of her passing in the very
| prime of life.
