Legalized Beer In
Nebraska Eight Years
Lincoln, August 11 (Special)—
This week marked the eighth an
nversary of the return of legal
beer to Nebraska.
On August 10, 1933, the sale ol
beer was resumed after a 16-year
“dry” period, under provisions ol
a statute passed by the 1933 legis
lature legalizing 3.2 beer.
This legislation was superseded
in 1935 by the present Nebraska
liquor control act providing for the j
sale of both beer and liquor ana
placing administration of the law
under a State Liquor Control Coni,
The Nebraska Brewers and Beei
Distributors Committee, self-re
gulatory organization headed by'
Charles E. Sandall. reports that:
since 1933 the state of Nebraska has
collected a total of $3,545,547 i
beer excise taxes. Of that amount,
some $2,641,183 has been used to
help finance the state assistance
program for the benefit of the needy
aged, dependent ehidren and the
blind. The remainder has gone to
the state’s general revenue fund.
Approximately 9,500 persons are
employed by brewers, wholesale and
retail beer establishments in Ne
braska with an estimated payroll
in 1940 of $8,528,000. There are
five Nebraska brewers, 29 ship-1
ping brewers doing business in the
state, 97 wholesale distributors and
about 2,250 on-premise beer retail
To help preserve these benefits
the Committee was organized more,
than three years ago to improve
standards in the operation of beei j
outlets. Dealers have respondeu
so well that the “Nebraska Plan' |
has been adopted in 13 other states.

The second annua] O'Neill Free
Day has passed into history and it
was a success from every point of
view. We do not think the crowd
here during the afternoon was as
large as that of last year, but in the
evening hours they kept (locking
into town from all directions and
by eight o’clock in the evening the
! streets were jammed with a happy
and jolly bunch. People familiar
with large crowds and who have had
experience in estimating their size
place the crowd in this city on Wed
nesday evening at about 8,000.
which is a lot of people. When
the large crowd was on the comer
during the distribution of gifts, the
free concessions were all running
and they were being liberally pat
ronized. With three amusements
device* for the little folks they all
had a swell time and will long
remember the O’Neill Day 1941.
Shortly after 10:30 in the morn
ing the festivities opened with a
grand parade in which the five
school bands present, Page, Stuart,
Ewing, Atkinson and O’Neill par
ticipated. The clown band also
