The Frontier LXIV O’NEILL, NEBRASKA, THURSDAY, MAY 27, 1943 NO. 3 I » # _. _ _________ - ■ - --- - - SENATOR ASIMUS REPORTS ON LEGISLATIVE BILL 129 -- ■ i " The Frontier received a letter from Senator Tony Asitnus the first of the week in which he gives an account of Legislative Bill No. 129, the bill which pro vides a new way of dividing the counties share of the gasoline tax money, which was introduced by him and successfully pushed thru the legislature. Following is the Senator’s letter: “Legislative Bill 129, a new plan of dividing the counties’ share of gas tax money, and introduced and sponsored by myself, finally passed the Nebraska Legislature and has been signed by Governor Griswold. This bill passed with the emergency clause attached, and goes into effect at once. “This bill caused one of the bit terest fights in the Legislature in years. The only reason it received 35 votes on final vote was that we were lucky enough to place it on general file about five days ahead of Omaha’s power bill, L. B. 204. We were entitled to 23 votes. Douglas and Lancaster counties used every means pos sible, fair and unfair, to defeat the bill up to final vote. After this bill was raised to the top of general file, six of our 23 voters agreed to a compromise with the other side. This bill in its present form is this compromise, which only gives us one-half of what my original bill would have brought our counties. I hope we get the other half when the next Legis lature meets. “The bill as passed, however, gives our district a good gain. Figured on the average of gas tax collections of 1939 to 1943, it gives: “Holt county, approximate gam of $10,000 to $10,500 per year. “Boyd county, approximate gam of $4,000 to $4,400 per year. “Rock county, approximate gam of $3,300 to $3,500 per year. “Keya Paha county, approxi mate gain of $2,900 to $3,100 per “This same principle of division on rural population will also work on vehicle registration fees. If a bill is introduced in the next legislature on registration fees, it will almost double the money left in our counties for this purpose. F. F. A. Agriculture Teacher To Leave The O’Neill chapter of the Fu ture Farmers of America held their monthly meeting on Tues day night. May 10. They went through their regular business and then decided to have a picnic at Emmett Revell’s. The picnic will be in honor of their advisor, Mr. Mathis, who will teach in Wisner in a similar position the following year. Mr. Mathis has taught Vocational Agriculture in the O’Neill Public Schools for the past four years. He organized the local F.F.A. chapter and worked very hard to make it a success. While here, in addition to teaching his day classes he had conducted one young farmers class, two adult farmers classes and supervised two mechanics courses at the Ford garage. He also helped coach football and basketball the past school year. Mr. Mathis stated, “I regret very much to leave my friends, and have enjoyed working with the people of O’Neill and the sur rounding community very much.

He will leave the first of June for Hollywood, Cal., where he will make his home. Miss Kathryn McCarthy, of Grand Island, spent the week-end j here visiting relatives and friends. | Saturday Poppy Day Men who served in the first World War were urged to be first to put on a poppy, next Saturday, in a message issued today by Paul Beha, commander of Simonson Post of the American Legion. Recalling the service and sacri fice of the men who fought for America twenty-five years ago, Commander Beha said: “Men are again being called upon to give their lives for Amer ica. as did our comrades in 1917 and 1918. Our own boys and our neighbors’ are among them. Our hearts are heavy at the thought that these young men must meet the same fate as those other young men we left beneath the poppies of France twenty-five years ago. “To show that we honor and remember the dead of both wars we have our memorial poppy. By wearing this little flower on Poppy Day, we express feelings we cannot put into words. We signify that we are carrying on in their spirit for the final triumph of the cause for which they laid down their lives. “Poppies, made by disabled war veterans, will be offered on the streets all day Saturday by the American Legion Auxiliary. I feel certain that they will be accepted eagerly and worn proudly by all citizens. I urge that among the first to put them on be the mem bers of the American Legion for we, before all others, should un derstand the significance of the little red flower and should lead the way in paying tribute to the nation’s fallen defenders.” Former O’Neill Boy Passes Away In Iowa Clayton Messner was called to East Pleasant Plains, Iowa, on May 4, by a message announcing the serious illness of his brother, Clyde Messner. According to word received by relatives here from Clayton, Clyde died on May 22, at the Jefferson County Hospital at Fairfield, Iowa, and he was buried at East Pleasant Plains, Iowa, on May 24th. Clyde Messner was born at Mineola, Nebr., on December 1, 1884, and would have been 59 years of age next December. A paralytic stroke suffered eighteen days prior to his death was given as the cause of hs death. Clyde was raised in O’NeilK the family moving to this city when he was a little boy. He at tended the O’Neill public schools and at the completion of his school years he clerked for a time in the grocery store of Jacob Pfund, then in the J. P. Mann store. He later turned, to the jew elry business and worked for William Lockard, who operated a jewelry store here for several years, and also for W. B. Graves. He left O’Neill about 1913 and went to East Pleasant Plains, Iowa, and opened a jewelry store and had been engaged in that business up to the time of his death. He never married, and is survived by his brother, Clyde, of O’Neill; a niece, Edith Messner, of O’Neill, and several cousins in South Sioux City and at Fairfield, Iowa. Clyde was a fine young man and he had a host of friends in this city who will regret to learn of his passing. O.C.C. Will Have An Interesting Program Already it is assured that the O’Neill Country Club will have a large membership for the present year. Gas and tire rationing will cause people to seek recreation near their homes this season. At the Ladies Tea last week it was decided to hold frequent children’s parties and dances. Mrs. Clark Wilson and Mrs. H. J. Birmingham were designated as a committee in charge of these enjoyable affairs for the younger set. It is assured there will be weekly or bi-weekly dinners at the club house. The one-day tour nament to be held Sunday, June 20th will be in charge of Allan Jaszkowiak and Max Golden. A bridge party for the ladies will be held the day of the tournament and golf players from surround ing towns will certainly bring their wives and lady friends to this affair. Mr. Jaszkowiak and Mr. Golden will also be in charge of a dancing party for club mem bers to be held early in June. The O’Neill Country Club has usually been the center of social activities in O’Neill during the | summer months. Government of ficials have been encouraged to seek recreation near their homes, and it is hoped that all old mem bers and many newcomers will join the club during 1943. The first of the week Mr. and Mrs. John Melvin closed a deal for the purchase of the Norton residence on the corner of Fifth and Clay streets. This is one of the nice residences in the city and is surrounded by a nice grove of trees and will make a spendid home for these O’Neill pioneers. 184 Eighth Grade Pupils Graduated Last Monday At the Holt county Eight Grade Promotion exercises held in the O’Neill High School Auditorium last Monday afternoon, the fol lowing pupils received the highest honors for their scholastic stand ing: HONOR GRADUATES Rural Schools 1— Edward Hynes. 95 Vi, Dist.

BREEZES FROM THE SOUTHWEST By Romalne Saunders Atkinson, Nebr., Star Rout* No. 5. Cattle were brought in last week from Colfax county and put on pasture at Henry Knudzen s. Not so long ago Yankees snear ed at the “Chinks.” Now comes along China’s First Lady and steals the whole show away from our own First Lady. Holt county has been favored with better weather than allcted to us this spring. Cloudy, cold and but little rain. All this is preferable to death, wreckage and ruined farms by flood and tornados experienced elsewhere. A south wind worked on us Sat urday and part of Sunday, when the sky became overcast with dense clouds and rain followed. Mists hung a soggy blanket across the prairie that rekindled the hope and verified the faith of gardener and rancher alike. Pasture lands are green and sus tain the usual run of cattle but moisture is not yet ample to re ward us with a normal nay crop. The tragic fruitage of one-man rule is seen in ghastly outline across Europe, surging in the backwaters of Asia and over whelming islands of the seven seas. Herr Hitler was not a bad Euy at the start, but no man can e placed upon a pedestal with safety to his generation. As I view it, no man however great or how lofty his purposes should for the third time be placed at the head of the nation and a fourth term is unthinkable. Neighbors planned early in the week to go to the Fredrich’s home on Wednesday, the ladies laying hold on soap and mops and water to clean house and their men folks going to the fields with planters to put in corn. Mr. Fredrichs has been in an Omaha hospital for several weeks, the burden of much ranch work fall ing on Mrs. Fredrichs and the children, the oldest a boy under draft age, besides the anxiety of sickness and several trips of one or more of the family to Omaha. I read of the death of Frank Barrett with regret. Frank and I spent an afternoon in visiting during the fair at Chambers last summer. I recall but little of what went on that afternoon on the fair grounds but the warm, friendly contact of an old friend remains a fragrant memory. “It is appointed unto man once to die.” As we gave our parting saluations that day I entertaining no thought that the appointment was near at hand for my friend. Mr. Barrett was a steady, sub stantial citizen with a calm out look on life that developed a strong and worthy character. He estimated men for what they were worth and placed an unerring finger on sham and make believe. Stock tanks and windmills are now not freely available, making the water supply for stock a problem with some citizens. The first citizens of the county solved the water problem by taking a spade and excavating a sizeable hole, boarded the sides, fastened to the sides two upright timbers with a cross piece, to which was attached a wheel with a grooved rim and through this a rope was run and a wooden bucket attach er to each end of the rope. Out there on the prairie we knew when Mike Carroll a mile north of us and Jim McTaggert to the east were drawing water by the screeching of those unoiled wheels. Vinegar or kerosene bar rels sawed in two served as stock tanks to supplement the water holes elsewhere. “During the past week or so Americans have learned the reas on why it is no longer possible for a person to accumulate great wealth. The income tax has doomed fortunes of the future. It is not probable that this gener ation will experience lower in come taxes. The nation will slave for a century to pay the cost of this war. There will prob ably be few tears at the passing of great fortunes but the masses of the people might well pay at tention to whether the same pro cess will impoverish everybody. Doubtless some of these emotional observations by an editorial writer will be found all too real istic all too soon if there is to be no release of the government stranglehold on the intelligence, the initiative, the executive and the creative ability that has not only built great fortunes but has rewarded thrift and industry in a less spectacular way. Mrs. H. J. Hammond returned Sunday from Paris and Aboliene, Texas, where she had visited rel atives for the past few weeks. She visited her daughter and son in-law, Pvt. and Mrs. Charles E. Chase at Paris, Texas, and her son, Pvt. George Hammond, who is stationed at Camp Barkley, Aboliene, Texas.

Fullerton of Pleasantviow township, and his son, James, Jr., of Gordon, Nebr., were in the city yesterday and made this office a pleasant call. Mr. Fullerton says that they have had a good deal more rainfall in the western part of the state than we have had in this section, but on account of the cold weather pastures are not in very good condition. This was his first visit to O’Neill in six years and he was surprised at the number of new buildings erected in this city since his last visit, j O.P.A. DIRECTOR WARNS OF POSSIBLE GAS SHORTAGE Harry J. Gleason, district direc tor of the Sioux City district of fice of price administration, ad vised today that while the miles driven per car on national av erage has been reduced some 2,400 miles per year, and this district’s miles has been reduced approxi mately 3,000 miles per year, it is still necessary that further mile age curtailment be effected. The national office estimates that it will be necessary to reduce mileage an additional 400 miles per year, in order that we can make our present crude and re claimed rubber supply tide us over until such time as syn thetic rubber becomes available in quantities large enough to di vert substantial amounts to assist the needs of the civilian pop ulation. Mr. Gleason also stated that there is a definite possibility that we may experience a gasoline shortage in this area. If this be comes true, it will be necessary that this part of the country be included in the gasoline shortage area, and consequently, be reg ulated as they are in areas where they are experiencing this type of shortage. It is only natural that with summer coming on, many of the motorists will be looking to ward the highway for their pleas ure and amusement. Mr. Gleason urges all motorists of this area to think twice before making any trip, in order that every possible mile might be conserved, until such time as we can be certain of just where we stand as far as rub ber and gasoline are concerned. Motorists are also urged not to make applications at local war price and rationing boards for ad ditional gasoline for unnecessary purposes, as this only places ad ditional work load on rationing boards, and there is no way pos sible that this gasoline can be issued. Mr. Gleason stated further that even though contradictory re marks concerning the availability of crude rubber and gasoline have been made, there is a definite shortage, as most people of this area have experienced, especially so in trying to secure tires. While it is impossible to make any def inite statements just when syn thetic rubber will be available, it is believed by late fall additional supplies of synthetic rubber will be available, and consequently, it will be possible to liberalize ra tioning as far as rationing of tires is concerned. There are, at the present time, large numbers of vehicles in this district laid up, because local war price and rationing boards are un able to act on the pending appli cations. Tire quotas for all boards have been insufficient, and the Sioux City office has been trying to secure additional quota from the national reserve. We find, however, there is no national re serve available. Consequently, ex cept in most critical situations, the tires on your can have to do until this present emergency is over. It is, however, anticipated that some relief will be given to the Grade III tire demands in the near future, in that many used tires are now being released from used tire suppliers and junk dealers. In co-operation with our effort to reduce the national average of miles driven each year, all law enforcement officials have ex pressed their willingness to co operate in this enforcement drive. Law enforcement officials will re port to the proper rationing board any violation in the use of the motorist’s gasoline ration. Persons holding a “B” or “C” book will also be reported if found more than 45 miles from their home, inasmuch as an “A" book holder only is allowed 90 miles per month of personal driving. Amusement centers, race tracks, etc., will also be periodically checked during the summer months, and if it is found that persons are driving beyond the mileage issued to them in their “A” book, they will be reported to their local rationing board, who will take proper measures. Mr. Gleason urges the co-oper ation of every motorist in this area to eliminate the driving of i unnecessary' miles.
