    Neb. State Historical Societ,
The Frontier
Commercial Club Held Rousing
Meet Tuesday Night At Golden
The members of the O’Neill
Commercial Club held the regu
lar meeting last Tuesday evening
in the Golden Hotel at 7 o’clock
and it was very largely attended,
in fact one of the best meetings
held for several months.
After the wants of the inner
man had been satisfied. Chairman
Cronin introduced L. M. Ress,
district engineer of the state high
way department, from Ainsworth,
who addressed the members and
gave some interesting information
regarding post-war planning of
the state highway department. He
said that contemplated work in
this section of the state was the
completion of Highway No. 20
from Creighton to O’Neill and the
oiling of Highway No. 281 from
O'Neill north to the South Da
kota line, and the building of a
road from Chambers west to con
nect with Highway No. 11. He
said that plans for this work were
already completed and had it not
been for the war the work would
be under construction at tne
present time. He said that a new
bridge across the Niobrara river
was also contemplated, when the
improvement on No. 281 was
done. During the war he said
there would be very little new
work started, but that the de
partment would continue to main
tain highways now built, to pre
vent a large amount of repair
work at the conclusion of hos
tilities. Work in this section this
year is the rebuilding of about
five miles of Highway No. 20 west
of Stuart and repair of Highway
No. 20 near Ewing. Mr. Ress
made a nice talk and it was en
joyed by the audience.
The election of officers for the
ensuing year was taken up. Dr.
O. W. French, who has been first
vice president for the past year,
automatically becomes the pres
ident for the coming year. R. H.
Shriner was elected first vice
president; Ted McElhaney. second
vice president. Paul Beha and
H. L. Lindberg were elected to
the board of directors.

Gibson Case Appealed
Attorneys for Mrs. Elsie Gib

was given an absolute divorce in
Holt county when she wanted
separate maintenance, asked the
supreme court Monday to over

Latest news from the fighting
in North Africa is to the effect
that the American, British and
Free French fighting forces have
the African army cornered in a
small section of Tunisia and it I
will be but a question of time
now until North Africa is free
from the Axis forces. The Ameri
can air forces are covering them
selves with glory on every front,
taking a heavy toll of Axis planes.
Farm Labor Exchange Is
Set Up In Holt County
Arrangements were completed
last week for a farm labor ex
change with a voluntary repre
sentative in each town of the
county. The United States Em
ployment Service, the county
agent’s office and the Farm Se
curity office are co-operating to
act as a clearing house for the
whole county.
In anticipation of a labor short
age, particularly during haying
and harvest, farmers and ranch
ers are being asked to register
their labor needs with their local
representative, in order that plans
can be made for meeting the de
mands. At the present time some
farm labor is available, but it has
been difficult to place them be
cause those farmers wanting to
hire help have not made their
needs known. If a farmer is in
need of help he should register
with the nearest representative in
order that his need may be filled.
The voluntary representatives
in Holt county are: Stuart: A.
C. Berner, Stuart creamery; At
kinson: Claude Humphrey. Hum
phrey shoe shop; O’Neill: Lyndle
R. Stout, county agent’s office;
Chambers: Louis Harley, Harley
Hdw. Co.; Page: H. L. Banta, bar
ber shop; Amelia: Edgar Peter
son, cream station; Emmet: Mrs.
Guy Cole, Emmet Hay Company.

A week ago the first crash of
thunder was heard in our prairie
land and the faucets of the sky
sprayed the landscape. It was a'
starter and a reminder that rain
is not a thing of the past. By the
start of this week rains had put
us under water out here.
When the thirst for the amber
colored brew and desires for the
little white paper rolls becomes
so strong as to lead to criminal
act, it is time for a fellow to con
front himself before the mirror,
shake a clenched fist at what he
sees and say, “Here, old, man, cut
this out!” -
A war worker earning $68.75
gets a check for $56.34, the sum
of $12.41 being taken from his pay
for war tax, bonds, social secur
ity, etc., and then another con
tribution for union maintenance.
War work is not a get-rich-quick
proposition but it is invested with
a patriotic sentiment.
As to the ultimate results for
a sovereign people, is an execu
tive who extravagently doles out
money not his own until hopeless
public indebtedness is incurred
to be desired rather than an ex

Many farm boys protest being

of farm work. The halo of glam

fellow clad in dusty overalls and
turning over furrows from day
light until dark but he is quite as
necessary on the job as any in
dividual in industry, official or
military service—and he does not
walk out on a strike.
Increase in land values is giv
en at 15 per cent of values more
than a year ago, a rather insig
nificant raise compared with pri
ces of the products of the land.
With the exception of horses, live
stock prices have more than
doubled and the same is true of
1 much of the products of agricul
ture. Real estate values do not
keep pace with the trend of the
, times. It is probably well that
; they do not as the land funda
mentally is the basis of wealth
and it gives a sense of stability
somewhere in our national struc
ture to know that land values
are not in the general runaway,
not yet. -

They Gave Their Lives, You Lend Your Money
The case of Guy Cole and Oth
ers vs. the Chicago & Northwest
ern Railway Company was the
center of interest in the assembly
room of the court house Thurs
day of last week, it being
a hearing before the railway
commission of a protest filed by
Mr. Cole and several citizens of
the Emmet neighborhood against
the company removing their
agent from Emmet.
Commissioner Larson and As
j sistant Attorney General Kokger
i of Lincoln were present for the
I commission. Attorney J. J. Har
! rington represented the protest
! ants, while WyrS»>r Dressier of
I Omaha appeared in behalf of the
Northwestern Railway Company.
The hearing started at 9:30 in the
morning and lasted until 6:30
that evening.
The first witness for the pro
testants was Guy Cole. He was
followed by Walter Puckett, Wal
ter Spangler, John Conard, Chas.
Malloy, Dale Robinson, Charles
Abart and Dewey Schaffer, all
prominent former shippers from
the Emmet station.
The witnesses for the railroad
company were Charles Watchke,
Chicago, chief accountant for the
railroad company; N. P. Hoover,
superintendent of the Norfolk di
vision of the road.
The railroad company wants to
do away with its agent in Emmet
—in fact had already done so
March 13—and install a caretaker.
This is seriously objected to by
the protestants for the reason, as
they say, a< caretaker would be of
little value to the people of Em
met and surrounding territory
who have used the defendant’s
lines. They also alleged that the
railroad received sufficient bus
iness in Emmet to justify the rail
road in keeping an agent there.
Now they have to come to O’Neill
for freight shipped to Emmet.
They say that the gross earnings
of the past six months justifies
the railroad company in keeping
an agent there and the business
has been constantly growing.
Since the agent was removed
from Emmet on March 13, thir-!
teen carloads of freight was ship-'
ped by Emmet shippers over the
Burlington out of O’Neill. The re
tention of the agent at Emmet is
desired by all the residents of the
Emmet section of the county, as
was evident from the large crowd |
of farmers from that section of
the county who were present at
the hearing. Despite the busy sea
son and the amount of farm work
to be done thirty-five farmers
and shippers of the Emmet sec
tion of the county were present
for the hearing, which proves that
they were vitally interested in
the hearing.
No decision was rendered at the I
end of the hearing, nor is a de- {
cision expected for five or six;
weeks, as the evidence will bei
presented to the entire commis-l
sion and will be discussed before
a final decision will be reached, j

Pat Regan Died At Home
Near Page Friday Morn
Pat Regan died at his home
southeast of Inman last Friday
morning at 1:05 o’clock, of heart
trouble, after an illness of but
five days, at the age of 63 years,
three months and fifteen days.
The funeral services were held
last Monday morning from the
Catholic church in this city, Rev.
J. J. O’Flynn of Ewing officiating,
and burial in Calvary cemetery.
The funeral was very large, many
friends attending from the east
ern part of the county to pay
their last respects to their depart
ed friend and neighbor.
Patrick Regan was born in
Swinford. Ireland, on December
24, 1879. He grew to manhood in
his native land and when he was
eighteen years of age he came to
the United States and to Holt
county, Nebraska, in 1879, and
had been a resident of the county
continuously since. On January
26, 1915, he was united in mar
riage to Miss Ellen M. Carr, of
Stafford, the ceremony being per
formed at Stafford. Four children
were born of this union, three
sons and one daughter. One of
his sons preceded him in death
and he leaves surviving, his wife
and two sons. They are: John J.,
(Brother Ivo), Tauton, Mass.;
Mrs. Helen M. Walker, Wahoo,
Nebr.; Charles P. Regan, G M.
3-C, U. S. Navy, who are left to
mourn the passing of a kind and
affectionate husband and father.
He is also survived by lour sis
ters and one brother. They are:
Mrs. William Riley and Mrs. Wil
liam McDermott, Boston. Mass.;
Peter Regan, Mrs. John Tunney
and Mrs. Joe Daughterty, who
live in their native land, Ireland.
His son, John J., (Brother Ivo,)
and sister, Mrs. William Riley,
came here* from Massachusetts for
the funeral services, as did also
his daughter and husband. Mr.
and Mrs. Walker, of Wahoo.
Patrick Regan came directly
from Ireland to Holt county and
for a few years made his home
with an uncle, Patrick Regan,
who lived about eight miles
northeast of O’Neill. Pat farmed
there for several years and then
went to Stafford and worked for
John Carr on his ranch for a num
ber of years, and after liis mar
riage went into business for him
self, and at the time of his death
was the owner of a nice cattle
ranch southeast of Inman, which
was well stocked. He was a hard
worker and prospered. He always
enjoyed good health until a few
days before his death. He was in
this city Wednesday, before his
death, and said that he was not
feeling well and came to town to
consult a physician, and he had
decided to go to Omaha on Sat
urday for medical treatment. But
he was undoubtedly in worse
physical condition than he or his
friends realized, as he passed
away Friday morning. Pat was a
genial and companionable man
and had a host of friends in this
city and county and his sudden
death was a shock to everyone.
The family have the sincere sym
pathy of their many friends in
their hour of sorrow.

Now Much Easier For Farmer To
Obtain Gas Rationing Coupons
It is now much easier for farm
ers to obtain rationing coupons
for gasoline used in off-the-high
way purposes. Fuel for tractors,
cooking, lighting, and brooders
may be obtained by simply call
ing at the nearest AAA War
Board, which is supplied with
ample applications. The farmer
will leave the completed appli
cation at the AAA War Board,
and very soon thereafter the ra
tion book will be mailed to him.
A ceiling was put on both the
wholesale and retail price of al
falfa meal this week. That ceil
ing is the average inventory cost
of each kind and grade of alfalfa
meal, plus $3.50 a ton.
“Demon Inflation” was struck
a powerful blow when the Office
of Price Administration extended
the meat ceilings this week by
establishing maximum prices for
which beef, veal, lamb and mut
ton may be sold. These prices
will go into effect April 15, and
will provide unform maximum
prices in all stores of the same
class in each of the twelve price
zones over the nation.
If butchers reduce the point
value of meats, they are required
to cut proportionately the dollar
and cents value, according to a
regulation announced this week.
Seed potatoes may be sold in
quantities less than 50-pound lots.
However, retailers are warned
that they must continue to clearly
tag and label all seed potatoes
as seed potatoes.
A price ceiling that will take
on more importance as the sum
mer season advances is that plac
ed on bottled soft drinks. No re
tailer can charge more for milk,
beer or bottled soft drinks than
he did in March, 1942.

The Weather
This section of Nebraska, as
well as practically the entire
state, received a good soaking the
past week We had a fine shower
last Thursday night that amount
ed to 55 hundredths of an inch.
Then Saturday afternoon it start
ed raining and a nice steady driz
zle continued to fall all night and
until mid-afternoon Sunday. The
total precipitation here, according
to Weather Observer Bowen, was
2.43 inches.
The first rain was much heav
ier in other parts of the county
than was recorded in this city.
The southeastern part of the
county reported that they had
about an inch in the first rain and
the northeastern part of the
county received about the same
amount. In the northern and
northwestern parts of the county
they said the first rain was near
ly two inches. The rain fell so
nice and quietly that it all soaked
into the ground. Farmers, as well
as everyone else, are naturally
feeling jubilant over the good
soaking, as it puts the ground in
excellent condition for spring
work and gives the pastures and
hay crop a good start.

The Missouri river has been on
the rampage in the Nebraska and
Iowa section for the past week
and the damage resulting from
the flood to farm lands, livestock
1 and farm buildings will run into
the milions.
Omaha was one of the heaviest
losers from the flood. East Oma
ha was completely inundated and
the four million Omaha munici
pal airport has been put out of
commission and seven feet of
water covered the runways last
Wednesday evening. The crest of
the flood reached and passed
Omaha on Wednesday and heavy
damage is now looked for in Ne
braska towns south of Omaha.
A largo force of army engineers
and soldiers from Fort Omaha
and Fort Crook assisted in evac
uating livestock and farm famil
ies from homes in the flooded
areas, as well as from the flooded
! sections of east Omaha. The flood
| is said to have been the worst
! since 1881. No lives were lost.
