This week I thought that I
would give you my idea that I
think would help both the Saint
Mary’s Cardinals and the O’Neill
Eagles to become better known in
the state and which would also
decide which is the best team in
this section of the state. My idea
is that O’Neill teams ought to get
together and form a football and
basketball league. In football
O’Neill could get six or eight
other teams together and they
could have a good league and I
think it would make the game
more interesting to the specta
St. Mary’s could get together
with Stuart, Long- Pine, Page,
Chambers, Verdige and they could
arrange games and have the one
who won the most games become
the league champion.
In basketball they could do the
same thing. Here are the teams
I think could got together and
form a swell league: Saint Mary’s,
O’Neill High, Page High, Inman
High. Ewing High, Atkinson High,
Spencer High, St. Joseph Acad
emy (Atkinson) and Orchard. This
would make a ten league team;
you could have each team play;
each other once and the winner
of the most games be the league
champion. And if it ended in a
tie you could let the officals decide
where to have the play off for the
A lot of these teams play each
other anyway and all these towns
are pretty close together so there
would not be such great dif
ficulty reaching their destination.
Way back in 1933 to 1936 their
used to be a Niobrara Valley con
ference of which O'Neill was a1
member. The conference was;
held in two sports, football and 1
track and O'Neill won the con
ference in both more than once.
I do not see why they closed the
league and I surely think it would
be a great thing for the two
schools in O'Neill to form leagues.
There is the North Central Con
ference, Atkinson, Spencer and
three other teams belong to that
but I do think they could get
together and have a bigger and
better league. And if it is at all
possible the coaches and superin
tendents of both schools should
get together and decide if they
could form a football, basketball,
and track league or not.
It would be backed by the
people of O’Neill I am sure of that
and the people of the other towns
around here would also be in
favor of a league, for it would
not cost any money and the games
would probably draw larger
So until Next Week I’ll say
See You Next Week.

Do You Know About
"VITAMINS for VICTORY"
Food is Nature's way of providing you with natural
vitamins and minerals. Too often, we mistakenly
waste or discard those natural elements through cer
tain methods of food preparation. Those vital vita
mins count more now than ever before. "Food for
Freedom" and "Vitamins for Victory" are battle cries
on the "home front." Get this Important vitamin
story today from your Electric Range dealer or Con
sumers. It's easy, economical and downright Im
portant to preserve "Vitamins for Victory."

way at the back of an electric
refrigerator. Six inches and pre
ferably twelve inches above the
top, so there will be good circula
tion of air. A gas refrigerator
needs two and a half inches at the
back, from ten to twelve inches
above the top.
Check the temperature of your
refrigerator. You’re wasting en
ergy if you keep the temperatures
anywhere in the cabinet below' 40
degrees. The coldest spot in the
cabinet should be between forty
degrees and forty-five at all times
for keeping milk and raw meat.
But the temperature should never
get above fifty degrees anywhere
in the cabinet.
Defrost the refrigerator before
the ice on the freezing unit gets
IV4 inch thick. This usually is
one a week, but will be more often

Keep the refrigerator clean.
Put only clean foods and clean

Bring all warm foods to room
temperatures before you put them

foods except those that have thick
