Many communities show fewer
applications for renewal of saloon
license and in some instance ap
plicants have taken refuge be
hind a skirt. Recent years have
developed in the public schools
scientific study of the effect of
alcoholic beverages. This doubt
less has its effect on the supply
of recruits for the saloon. Back
in the 80’s there was widespread
“signing the pledge” and some
thing similar to this seems to be
again at work. The tribe of the

The demand of movie patrons

It is a surprise to some that con

There is a rattling of the dry
bones among the anti-liquor
forces, who are asking that intoxi
cants be at least kept from our
fighting forces. There are good
citizens who seem to think that
access to a drink with a kick is
essential to life, liberty and the
pursuit of happiness. All of this
has come to me in large measure
through a long life from pioneer
to settled society and I have yet
to take the first alcoholic drink.
It is too late in life now to start.
It is not so much the distillers
and the old soaks that stand in

In the diobolical program of war

doubtless many more since this

murderous thrust in the dark.
We say their destruction is just
retribution. Down they go
human freight with them—if
mankind that has sold itself to the
occupation of an assassin can still
be said to be human. Men sunk
to the oceans’ vast depth; broken,
bleeding, frozen, dead and dying
bodies of men; fathers, mothers,
children, bombed, bereaved of
home, sons, daughters, parents;
property, treasures of the ages
gone. When will the reeking
horrors of madness end?

Trace of Moisture for the week
Petersburg Pilot of St. Petersburg,
Florida, mailed to me by Mrs.
W. H. Stein of 6916 Coldwater
Canyon Ave., North Hollywood,
Calif., where she and family
moved from O’Neill. The Pilot
has made use of two paragraphs
from this column, one of which
was given proper credit, but those
are the least interesting of the
several features that make up the
publication devoted to the comj
munity’s tourist interests. I am
always glad to be remembered
by friends of the Breezes in this
way or by letter, and again sug
gest they bear in mind my address
is Atkinson, not Amelia.
“And they were both righteous
before God, walking in all the
commandants and ordinances of
the Lord blameless.” How many
can* raise their hands and say,
"That’s Us.” I can’t—not yet.
Of the uncounted multitudes of
men and women who have trod
life’s rugged way, only to the par
ents of John the Baptist has this
clean bill been given. Rather
a sad commentary on the record
of the ages. One former acquaint
ance laid claim to measuring up
to that standard. His earthly
record has long since been closed,
so it is not a violation of the
memory of an old timer to say
'Squire Slattery gave me this bit
of startling information as applied
to himself and confirmed it on
more than one occasion as he sat
pegging the sole of a boot in that
somewhat intriguing little cobb
ler’s shop on lower Fourth street.
Is the goal of such attainment
a full measure of contentment or
a dignified humility? Whatever
the ‘squire’s attainments may have
been in this respect he was always
in a jovial mood and his cheerful
outlook on life seemed as a bit of
balm when on the weary rounds
of news gathering his little shop
was visited. If such a word as
quoted at the opening of this para
graph is merited in the lives of
any father and mother it must be
spoken by Another.
A disastrous fire at the Carr
ranch, just west of Ewing, last
Friday caused damage estimated
at between $4,000.00 and $5,000.00
partially covered by insurance.!
In fact it is hard to estimate the
damage, as there was much mach- )
inery destroyed that will be hard
to replace, and the prices they will 1
have to pay now to replace the
destroyed property will be much
higher then what was paid for the
old machinery, if they will be |
able to replace.
The fire was between 1:30 and |
2:00 o’clock. Mrs. Mary Tomjack
was doing some cleaning at the .
house as Mr. and Mrs. Max Wan
ser were to move therein in a
week or so, and already had some i
| of their goods stored in one of the
1 sheds that burned. Mrs. Max Was
ser was out there that morning !
and had taken her son, Terry, ]
and Robert Tomjack, son of Mrs.
Tomjack out there for the day, |
and she returned to her home in
Ewing. The boys went up in the
hayloft, which was full of hay and
while playing Terry lit a match
and the place was soon in flames.
The boys got out of the barn and
then hid in a grove near the house.
When Mrs. Tomjack descovered
the fire the barn was about ready
to crumble and then she could
not find the boys and was afraid
that they were in the barn, but
in a short time she located the
boys safe and sound.
In addition to the barn, which
was a large structure with a
large haymow filled with hay, a
grainery, with considerable grain,
tool shop, light plant and several
other small buildings were de
stroyed. Boys will be boys and
they always will, but this should
be a lesson to other youngsters that
matches are not safe play things.
The two young boys must have
acted quickly to get out of the
building after the start of the fire
or in a short time they would have
been overcome by smoke and the
fire might have had a tragic end- j
Boys Beware Of Light
Wires WTien Flying Kites
Boys will be boys and spring!
is the season for kite flying, but
to gain the greatest pleasure from ;
the sport, certain safety rules!
must be observed to avoid acci- j
dents. Such is the opinion of,
E. C. Hild, safety director for
Consumers Public Power District.
One of the .first and most im
portant rules is to fly kites in
open lots or fields and away from
electric or other kinds of wires, j
If this rule is disregarded, and a
kite becomes entangled in the
wires, Hild states emphatically
that the kite flyer should not at
tempt to climb a pole or in any
other manner attempt to free the
kite. Serious accidents can re
sult from such an effort.
Another good rule to follow is
never to use string with wire
entwined in it or to use any wire
as a connection between the kite
string and the kite itself. String
of this type becomes a carrier of j
electricity should the kite happen
to fall across an electric wire.
“Still another safety practice to
follow is to avoid crossing streets
or highways while flying kites.
If it becomes necessary to cross
streets or highways always look
both ways for approaching traf
fic and thus eliminate the danger
or traffic accidents,” said Hild.
Kite flying is an age old sport,
and still holds the fascination of
man and boy 'alike, despite the
almost common sight of airplanes
in flight. But kite flying, to be
a safe pastime, must have certain
reasonable “don’ts,” and Mr. Hild
believes the foregoing should be
placed on every kite enthusiast’s
“must” list under “Dad’s” guid

St. Mary’s Grade
Basketball Players
Finish Great Season
The Saint Mary's grades finish
ed their greatest season in years
when they won the invitation
grade tournament here at O'Neill.
They beat O’Neill grades in the
finals 16 to 5, and the other games
were also won by very deceisive
scores. Three men, French, Bak
er and Merriman combined to
build a great team. Saint Mary's
won 8 out of 11 games and in
return games beat the three teams
who had defeated them. Froelich,
Baker and Merriman also lead in
the point making. Froelich had
53, Baker was close behind witn
52 and Merriman had 39. When
these boy’s get to high school they
will probably have a very good
team. This season was the best
for the grades except in 1932
when they went through unde
USO Being Organized
By Holt County Citizens
During the month of May, a
drive will be conducted through
out the nation to collect funds for
the United Service Organization,
known as the USO. Holt County
citzens will be asked to contribute
to this fund.
What is the USO? It is an or
ganization of service units. Dur
ing the last war the service units
which served the army were the
Y. M. C. A., Salvation Army,
Knights of Columbus, Jewish
Welfare and some others. Dur
ing the present war these organi
zations will be combined in what
is now known as the United Ser
vice Organization or USO.
What does the USO do? In
every camp where soldiers are
station a club house will be erect
ed and the USO will function.
Its duties are to build morale a
mong troops. It will organize
athletic events for soldiers in
spare time, such as football, bas
ketball, baseball, volley ball and
other games. It will conduct
moving picture shows, state pro
ductions, radio programs and
organize theatrical events among
the troops. The club houses will
be equipped with radios, pool
tables, bowling alleys in some
cases, and will be the center of
entertainment for soldiers in lies
ure time.
This phase of the army is most
important. As a rule camps are
located in places adjacent to small
towns where soldiers find it very
difficult to obtain proper enter
tainment. Naturally, boys who
are inducted into the army are
lonesome and homesick. In that
frame of mind it is impossible
for them to give their best efforts
to the strenuous work they have
to do. The United Service Or
ganization plays a great part in
building morale and lifting newly
inducted soldiers from the lone
some feeling which overcomes all
recruits in the army.
Holt County has been assigned
a quota of $500.00 for this worthy
cause. All of us are aware of the
tremendous obligation we owe
the splendid boys who have gone
into the army. We all want to do
something for them. The Red
Cross, a wonderful organization,
takes care of the welfare and
medical phase o# the troops and
their relatives. The USO takes
care of clean entertainment,
strives to make the soldiers happy
in their work. Holt County citi
zens have oversubscribed their
quota in the Red Cross drive and
they will not be found wanting
in this contribution to a fund
which will bring pleasure and
happiness to their soldiers.
USO officials have named Ed
ward M. Gallagher Holt County
Chairman and within the next
week committees will be selected
to conduct the drive.
Following is a list of the chair
men appointed to organize com
mittees in their respective localit
ies to function in the Holt county
USO drive which will commence
about May 11, 1942:
Atkinson—Ralph Kelly
O’Neill—Rev. V. C. Wright
Chambers—Clair Grimes
Ewing—Lyle P. Dierks
