Limit to What Farmers Can Bear
3. We call upon Congress and
our fellow citizens to realize that
while agriculture has historically
borne the major financial loss in
curred by war, this struggle is too
vast for one class, or a few classes,
to bear the burden.
Increased living costs are a part
ot indirect taxation; and when
any group demands increased
wages to pay increased living
costs, they are only seeking to
pass their burden on to still other
4. We pledge the members of
our organization to a full war
effort to produce as much as pos
sible, but call attention to the
fact that, due to past depressions
and drouth, Nebraska farmers
have no reserve to use in produc
ing at a loss. It is inevitable that
many increased costs are being
passed on to farmers. For in
stance, binder twine that was
$8.50 last fall is now $11.50 per

We ask the price administra

“O" Club Boxing Contests
Exciting And Interesting
The “O” Club of the O'Neill
High sponsored its annual Boxing
Carnival with great success last
Monday and Tuesday nights at
the O'Neill High Gym. One of
the best programs ever seen at
the High School, included action
in every bout.
The eighteen bouts held Mon
day night resulted in two knock
outs, and two techinal K. Os.
The first round matches found the
following winners: Hollenbeck.
Hungerford. Bright, Clyde, Nos
hart, Keller (techinal K. O.), Gif
ford (techinal K. O.), Gunn. Lewis
(techinal K. O.), Benson, Calkins.
Tibbetts, Dempsey, Moler, Cole,
L. Hollenbeck, Gunn, No. 2., Cal
kins, No. 2.
In the finals on the card Tues
daay night many exhibitions were
on the card. The winners were:
Porter, Hungerford. L. Hollen
beck, Keller (T K O), Bright.
Ryan. R. Tibbetts, Donohoe, Cav
anaugh, Earley (K. O.), Dempsey,
Oberle, Keller, B. Tibbetts, Ben
son, and Calkins.
Some of those participating
fought twice on the same night.
A large crowd was present both
evenings and the audiences ap
parently enjoyed the various
matches The crowd was espci
fally pleased with a Kangaroo
fight (in which all fighters are
blindfolded) among four feather
weights. And was it fun.
r By Bystander
The annual “O” club boxing
Tournament at the O’Neill High
gym drew a large crowd of people
Monday and Tuesday nights to see
some of the best boxers in North
east Nebraska. Joe Early knock-1
ed out Vince Streeter in the third
round Tuesday and Vincent was
out almost an hour and a half. I
did not see the fight but here
is what happened. Joe knocked
Vince down and as Vince fell
then the canvas. He got up and
his head hit the ropes and
Joe hit him again and this time
Vince stayed down and in my
opinion the referees should have
stopped the fight when Vince
went down the first time. For.
when he got up after being knock
ed down, he was in a daze
and didn’t seem to know what
he was doing. They took Vince
to the dressing room and after
an hour of work he still didn't
come out of it so they took him
to the city hospital. He recovered
soon after he reached the hospital
and returned to school Wednesday
morning. Joe Early is not at all
to blame; it was just one of
those things and if the blame has
to fall on anybody it should fall
on the referees.
The Joe Louis-Abe Simon fight
fought last Friday made me be
lieve that Joe Louis is the great
est figter the world has ever seen.
He slowly murdered Abe and the
big giant never had a chance to
win the title from Joe Barrow
Joe just slowly chopped the giant
to pieces and in the sixth round
he decided it was time to finish
the job. The last time they fought
you remember it took Joe 13
rounds to dispose of the giant.
Lem Franklin was kayoed in
the first round Monday by Harry
Bobo and this is about the begin
ning of the end of Lem's career.
I thought that Lem should get a
crack at the camp but after his
last two fights Lem is probably
done in the big time unless he can
make a marvelous com back.
This is about all of the import
ant sports news this week so again
I say, See you next week.
Meeting On April 9.
Farmers and others persons in
Holt County who are interested
in the possibilities of organizing
a soil conservation district in this
territory are invited to attend a
meeting at the city hall in Page
on Thursday, April 9 at 2:00 p.
Mr. H E Engstrom of the Soil
Conservation Service and Mr. E
H, Doll of the Extension Service
will explain the operations of Soil
Conservation Districts in Nebras
ka and the possibilities and pro
cedure to be followed if enough
Interest is shown to try to organ
ise a district in this county.
This preliminary meeting has
been arranged for by county
Agent, Lvndle R Stout, upon the
request of several local farmers
Any action to follow will depend
on the interest shown by local
people at this time.
How To (»et
Hid Of IVairio Dogs
Several local farmers have been
inquiring at the county agent's
office in O’Neill for methods of er
adicating prairie dogs.
Careful use of poisoned oats
where dogs can find has proven
effective. Best results are obtain
ed when poisoning is done before
grass starts to grow. More than
one attempt at poisoning will pro
ably be necessary for complete
eradication. Prairie dogs migrate
and multiply rapidly so that they
can restock a colony which has
been eradicated by an individual
effort. Some organization for
community eradication will ac
complish more than many years
of individual fighting.
An effective bait can be obtain
ed very reasonably commercially,
or a formula for home mixing of
bait from oats; strychnine may be
obtained from the county agent's
office. One quart of bait will treat
easily forty burrows. With rea
sonable care livestock will not be
endangered if the bait is spread
properly on open range.
There is liable to be a short
age of beer in O’Neill this sum

sees have failed to file an appli
cation for a license. They are.
Donald Enright, Peter Peterson
