According to published figures
relating to Indian administration
there are 12,510 pale faces looking
after 364,000 Indians. Federal
appropriations for this work have
increased in twelve years from
seventeen million to thirty-five
million. There are no pijters
down there at Washington when
it comes to spending money.
Exclusive of those in armed
service, the federal government
has two and a quarter million on
the civil payroll, over one million
more than during the high tide
of the previous World War. The
present group rose to power on
a platform denouncing the very
thing they have multiplied a
hundred fold in ten years. Yes,
we are at war, but it takes fight
ers, not bureaus and batteries of
typewriters, to win battles.
The midnight flash of lighten
ing and the roll of thunder awak
ened sleepers to discover a rain
storm was spread over the land.
And again the next night this
was repeated. Out of the pink
dawn of another day God has
given us the sun flashed on a rain
washed prairie. Haying crews
took a layoff until wind and
sun wrought their work on heavi
ly grassed meadows. Gardens,
corn fields and animate life were
At least two county officials
have clear sailing unless the un
likely contingency should come
out of the primaries of a suc
cessful write-in campaign. Our
popular sheriff and efficient reg
ister of deeds have been the
favorites of the voters so long
that other aspirants to these
honors and emoluments have
been frightened away. It is not
a partisan victory but personal
popularity as Sheriff Duffy has
never been anything but a demo
crat, not excepting New Dealer,
while Mrs. Harris is a republican.
Some days ago the war depart
ment informed the country that
nearly 45.000 Americans had
been killed thus far in the war.
A tragic emphasis that this is not
a grand national carnival. The
women buzzing around to enter
tain the soldiers may well reflect
on these words of Madame Benes,
wife of the president of the Czech
osovak republic: “In these days
when the gallant soldiers of our
armies of freedom are dying on
the land and in the air, and when
in Czecholovakia hundreds of
fighters on our home front are
daily being cynically murdered,
our hearts and thoughts are far
from the glitter and circumstan
ces of peace time festivities.”
John Brennan sends me a page
from the Salt Lake Ctiy Tribune
of July 21 containing the story of
the wedding of Miss Kathryn
Jane Kearns and Ensign Thomas
F. Durkin, Jr., of Cleveland,
Ohio. The bride is a daughter
of Thomas F. Kearns, son of the
late Tom Kearns, an early day
citizen of Holt county. John
enclosed this note: “Miss Gene
vieve Biglin, who has been visit
ing her cousin Marie Biglin,
stayed over for the wedding and
left the next day for O’Neill.”
And I take a paragraph from the
Tribune story: “After the cere
mony the couple were guests at
a wedding breakfast at the home
of the bride’s father. Later they
boarded a plane for a honeymoon
in San Francisco. The bride
chose for traveling a white gab
ardine suit with a Leopard-trim
med white topcoat. The bride,
prominent society member, is a
granddaughter of Mrs. Thomas
Kearns and the late Senator
Kearns. The bridegroom, who is
a nephew of T. J. O’Brien of the
Alta club, is on furlough from
active duty on the Pacific.”
Mr. Rooney’s published appeal
for us to come up to the help of
the Lord against the mighty with
our iron and rubber has the
weight of sincerity. My own
iunk lot has been scraped to the
bone, yet there is more about the
premises that could be turned in.

communuity might disgorge quite

driven 25 or 30 miles with a size

O’Neill High School Offers
Vocational Agriculture
O’Neill is located in a strictly
farming community. Since this is
true, the school officials have de
cided that a larger vocational ag
ricultural program is needed. The
new course that will be added
deals with the business of farm
ing and more advanced projects
in shops.
It is more important now than
it has ever been that the farm
youth know more about the new
methods in farming and be able
to do his own mechanical work
on his home farm. If he is not
needed on the farm, the Army or
industries will use him. There is
a great demand for men who have
had mechanical training. Voca
tional agriculture is one course in
high school that will train the
boys for some of these jobs.
School will be starting soon
and it would be well for the farm
ers and ranchers to be thinking
about arranging their labor so
that their sons will be able to con
tinue their education.
Farmers and ranchers who are
interested in sending their sons
to O’Neill High School to give
them the opportunity to study
agriculture and farm shop, may
write or come in and talk it over
with A. L. Mathis, the vocational
agriculture instructor.
No-Fund Check Writer
Gets Year In Penitentiary
John A. Grunke, who has been
in the county jail since early in
April charged with passing sev
eral checks in Ewing drawn on
banks in which he had no money,
plead guilty Tuesday before
Judge D. R. Mounts and was sen
tenced to the penitentiary for one
year. The prosecution was
based on a new law making it a
felony to write checks upon a
bank without any funds in the
bank with which to pay it upon

Holt County Scrap Drive
Now Well Under Way
Holt county had contributed
155,201 pounds of scrap as of July

needed in order to put Holt coun
ty in the top ranking counties in
the state salvage contest. The
week of August 1 to August 8,
inclusive, has been selected as
Holt County Scrap Salvage Week.
All farmers are urged to sell or
donate their scrap during that
Any farmer selling scrap metal
to a scrap dealer outside of the
county should secure a receipt
from the dealer and mail it to his
local salvage chairman.
Scrap can be donated either to
the various town collections or
to charitable organizations. This
donated scrap will be picked up
by county and state trucks if the
quantity is 500 pounds or more,
and if it is piled up so that it can
be easily loaded. This donated
material will need to be in large
amounts or located on a route
which the truck can follow. The
local salvage chairmen are:
A1 Berner, Stuart.
Frank Schnase, Atkinson.
Mrs. Guy Cqle, Emmet.
John Sullivan, O’Neill.

cause of insufficient scrap in
stock piles. Everyone is urged to

our part.
