Saturday, May 29
Poppy Day, Buy
America’s dead of two wars
will be honored on Poppy Day,
when millions of Americans will
wear red poppies as a symbol of
remembrance and tribute.
Here, as in other cities through
out the country, flower girls un
der the auspices of the American
Legion Auxiliary will be on the
streets at an early hour with bas
kets of poppies. A large corps of
volunteer workers has been or
ganized by Mrs. Gallagher, poppy
chairman, to distribute poppies to
everyone in the city.
The poppies have been made
by disabled veterans at Lincoln,
who have been working at their
beds and in the hospital work
room during the winter and
spring. This occupation has help
ed them pass the local hospital
days pleasantly, has enabled them
to earn money and has been val
uable in promoting recovery.
While distributing the memor
ial flowers, the Auxiliary women
will receive contributions for the
Legion and Auxiliary rehabilita
tion and welfare funds. All of the
money contributed will go into
these funds, the Auxiliary work
ers serving without pay. Poppy
contributions form an important
part of the funds which support
the vast humanitarian efforts of
the Legion and Auxiliary fpr the
disabled veterans, and children
of the dead and disabled of both
More than 13,000.000 poppies
were distributed by the Auxiliary
last year and the number worn
this year is expected to be sub
stantially larger. The local Aux
iliary Unit is prepared to supply
a poppy to everyone in the city,
and believes there will be but few
who will fail to honor the war
dead and aid living war victims
by wearing the little red flower
of remembrance.

til her marriage to Rev. George

Methodist minister held pastor
ates in many places before com

nephews and a host of friends.
She was a faithful church mem
ber and a Christian of the finest
type, one whose example made
Christianity attractive to others.
No wayfarer was ever turned
away from her door unfed or un
clothed. Her own interests were
always put in the background
when someone needed help. One
seeking her counsel found in her
a sea of calmness in a turbulent
One of her favorite Bible quo
tations was. “Whatsoever ye do,
do it heartily as unto the Lord;'’
Making something sublime of the
lowliest task by dedicating it to
God. In the home where she was

ly missed.
" We thank you, Mother, for a
life as pure as snow,
For a care unfailing as the
earth, or sun or stars of night.
We thank you for a love as sure
as circling winds or sky.

clear, a living light.

Farm Loan Problem To
Be Handled Locally
Volunteer representatives in
each town in Holt county are re
porting to County Agent Lyndle
R. Stout that they are receiving
very few requests from farmers,
for hired help. In a case or two!
they were unable to place men i
who are wanting farm work.
Notice has been received that
90 percent of the farm labor for
haying and harvest will have to
be recruited locally, as the num
ber of transient laborers will be
small this year. Registration of
non-farm youth in high schools
for farm work has started.
A volunteer labor organization
operating with the county agent’s
office as a clearing house has been
completed. Farmers and ranchers
are urgently requested to make
their labor needs, for both the
present and the future, known to
their local representatives in or
der that available labor will be
able tc find a job. Registering
farm labor needs with these rep
resentatives will help consider
ably in assisting in tne most ef
ficient use of labor available. Reg
ister your labor needs with one of
the following representatives:
Stuart: A. C. Berner, at Stu
art creamery; Atkinson: Claude;
Humphreys, at Humphreys shoe j
shop; O’Neill: Lyndle R. Stout,
