Neb. State Historical Society * P VOL. LXIII O’NEILL, NEBRASKA, THURSDAY, JULY 30, 1942 - NUMBER 12 .._—-------— SOUTHWESTERN BREEZES By Romaine Saunders 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 benefited. 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. but as I am at present confined to a saddle horse as a means of travel cannot make delivery. The communuity might disgorge quite a quantity, but when one has driven 25 or 30 miles with a size able load that scarcely pays the gas bill, his enthusiasm, if not his patriotism, receives a jolt. Blake Ott over at Amelia has $65 in ( vested in a sizeable pile of old tires but was fearing that he was “stuck.” We are all going to be 17 Holt Couty Boys Will i Go To Ft. Logan Tuesday Seventeen of the young men who left here on July 20th for Omaha for their medical examin ation and were inducted into the U. S.

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 presentation. CARD OF THANKS We desire to express our sin cere and heartfelt thanks to the many kind friends and ntighbors for their many acts of kindness extended during the long illness and following the death of our beloved mother and sister and for the many beautiful floral offer ings. — The McManus Children, Mr. and Mrs. C.

From the top lead ership to the humblest citizen— all should subordinate personal interest, as well as political in trigue, to every honorable effort to crush the forces that would rob us of our heritage of freedom. My country ’tis of thee! Come on, toss in your scrap iron or tools and machines that are better than scrap but have not been used for several years.

Holt County Scrap Drive Now Well Under Way Holt county had contributed 155,201 pounds of scrap as of July 27. A great deal more scrap is 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 week. 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. Cleo Alderson, Chambers. Father Byersdorfer, St. John’s. Mrs. E. V. Ruby, Ewing. Mrs. Helen Braddock, Page. Earl Watson, Inman. If you have scrap to donate, drop a card to the salvage chair man who is located nearest to you. We realize that this is a busy time, but scrap is badly needed. Some of the steel mills have had to shut down in some cases and cut off production in others be cause of insufficient scrap in stock piles. Everyone is urged to sort and sell or donate their scrap during the week of August 1 to August 8. Let each one of us do our part. JAMES W. ROONEY, Salvage Chairman. Hospital Notes Mrs. Clarence Gokie of Cham bers admitted Friday and dismis sed Wednesay. James Carney entered Thurs day for medical treatment. Mrs. Roy Wayman, a girl born on Monday. Mrs. Clarence Rothchild of Chambers, a boy born on Tues day. Mrs. Roy Pletzel dismissed on Thursday. Charles Mitchell dismissed on Saturday. The Ladies Auxiliary of the American Legion have secured1 about 100 pictures of soldier boys who are in the service of our country and they are on display in the window of Johnson’s Drug Store. There are still a large num ber of the boys in the service, of whom they have no pictures, and if their relatives will send the picture to Mrs. T. D. Harrington, chairman of the committee hav ing them in charge, she will see that they are displayed with the other boys’ pictures. Brisk Auction On Livestock Supplies Receipts of livestock at the lo cal auction last Monday contin ued rather limited as the bounti ful harvest claimed the attention of most farmers in this section. However, action was good and prices were mostly steady. Qual ity was fair to good. The supply of calves was more limited than at any other sale this season. The prices on those that were here was fully steady with a week ago. Heifer calves reached $12.20 on a few. Yearling steers were not in large supply. The best light weights reached up to $11.75. Heifers in this class made $11.25. Quite a few two-year-olds were here and sold at fully steady prices. Good beef cows were scare. However, the best in the beef class cashed at $9.50 to $9.85, with plainer grades making $7.50 to $8.80. Heifers reached $10. Bulls paid from $9.50 to $10.50. The recent announcement made by the government on pork prices had a direct effect on the hog market here last Monday. Sup plies were somewhat lighter than in recent weeks. Top on butchers was $13.55, with the bulk going at $13.45 to $13.50. Sows cashed )at $12.25 to $12.60. Feeder pigs sold at prices ranging from $14 to $14.50 Next sale will be held on Monday, August 3. Miss Dolores VanHove of Bris tow came Friday and is visiting Mrs. Goldie Liddy this week. Ladies of Red Cross -* Active In War Work Following is a summary of the garments made and shipped by the Holt County Chapter of Am erican Red Cross since the work has been taken up: Army and Navy: 43 sweaters, 10 helmets, 16 pairs gloves, 10 watch caps, 46 kits. Refugee: 184 sweaters, 21 pairs socks, 6 shawls, 64 children’s dresses, 32 women’s dresses, 94 pair men’s pajamas, 19 pairs children’s pajamas, 22 bed shirts, 72 pairs boys’ shorts, 2 girls’ slips, 49 night gowns, 24 convalescent robes (children’s), 32 Lafayettes. Most of the material has been sent by National Headquarters, although material has been do nated by some branches for children’s night gowns and pa jamas. The quilts which were sent were made from left-over material from dresses, shirts and pajamas. Material for the kits was furn ished by the local chapter, the contents donated by the branch making the kit. Each kit con tains 1 small diary, 1 pencil, 1 jack knife, 1 comb, 1 tube shav ing cream, 1 small notebook and envelopes, 5 U. S. post cards, 1 housewife (sewing case) and a deck of cards.
