The Frontier LXIV O'NEILL, NEBRASKA, THURSDAY, JUNE 3, 1943 NO. 4 Order Restoration Of Emmet Station Agent “The state railway commission Saturday ordered the Northwest ern railroad to restore its agency at Emmet, although the supreme court recently overruled a com mission refusal to substitute a custodian for an agent. “The order was approved oy Commissioners Ray Larson and John Knickrhem. Duane Swan son dissented. “Guy Cole, an Emmet shipper, complained service at Emmet is inferior and after a hearing the commission ordered an agent be placed there. The court had sug gested that should custodian serv ice be insufficient, a new hearing should be held.”—State Journal. The case of Guy Cole and oth ers against the C. & N. W. rail way company was heard by Com missioner Larson of the State Railway Commission at a hear ing in the court house here on April 8. At the hearing about 35 farmers and businessmen of Em et and vicinity were in attend ance at the meeting, and by their attendance showed very clearly that they wanted the Emmet sta tion of the Northwestern kept go ing as an asset of the town instead of a liability, and evidently con vinced the commission that it should be retained. The company may appeal from the decision. Distinguished Flying Cross To O’Neill Native The Los Angeles Times, in its issue of May 26th, carried a story about the awards given two offi cers and six enlisted men for heroism in action. Among those listed was Corporal Edward Stein, of North Hollywood, Calif., son of Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Stein, for merly of this city. Edward was given the Distinguished Flying Cross for unusual achievement in New Guinea. Edward was born and grew to manhood in O’Neill and prior to the removal of the family to Cali fornia he was an employee of the O’Neill Photo Company. He has many friends in the “old home town” who extend congratulatons and best wishes to him during his army career. He is a radio expert. , , , Edward has two brothers also in the armed services of their country. They are John Stein, who graduated from the U. S. Naval Training Station, College Station. Texas, a short time ago and is how an RM 3-c Navy op erator. Pfc. Romain Stein is in the Marine Truck Division and seen action in Guadalcanal, and lots of it All three boys are natives of O’Neill and the best wishes of a host of friends here are extended to each of the boys from the res idents of “the old home town. Trained Workers Are Needed To Win War Your government has opened training facilities for young men and women, between the ages of 16 to 25, married or single, and who are out of school, for jobs in vital war industries. The demand for skilled workers now far ex ceeds the supply. Immediate placement opportunities are avail able for all youth who success fully complete their war produc tion training courses authorized by the War Manpower Commis sion. . . Your government is offering you the chance, at no cost to you, to learn a skilled trade and fur ther the war effort, by working in a war production job. There are several training centers located throughout the state in which you can take training in the follow ing fields of defense employment: Welding, sheet metal, machinist, radio, aircraft, aircraft electricity, mechanical drafting, and indus trial sewing. The training centers *re located in Kearney, Lincoln, Omaha and Bellevue, Nebraska. It takes about six to 26 weeks for you to complete your training. At the center you receive your training while actually producing items for the Army and other war agencies. You receive your board, room, laundry, uniforms, medical care and training at no cost to you. In addition to this you re ceive a monthly salary, which provides for personal expenses, for the time spent on production, i You who live at home, or do not ! live at the training center, and I are assigned to the shops receive a larger salary in addition to their training and medical care. During the last six months ap proximately 800 Nebraska train ees have secured employment paying from 45 cents to $1.45 an (hour in vital war industries fol lowing their training. Interested persons may obtain further info*1" mation by writing to Bennie W. Kay, Youth Personnel Field Rep., 620 Logan St., Wayne, Nebr. About 500 thousand coal miners are on strike over the coal pro ducing areas of the country and practically all mines are closed. And still John L. Lewis continues to defy the officials of the govern ment that he swore to uphold when he becam.•* a citizen of the United States. It is about time <*tfor action. 1 Holt County Boys To Be Inducted This Month Following is the list of Holt county boys who will be inducted into the armed forces in June: O'Neill Bernard Lowayne Madison Sidney Virgil Wilkinson Joe Anthony Grutsch Donovan Madison Henifin Robert Edmund Miles Darly LeRoy Banks Keith Edward Vincent James Junior Yocum Dale Albert LaSart Ronald Preston Huebert Page William Earl O’Brien Francis Blain Huston Edward Raymond Jorden Kenneth Loyd Coover Richard Lee Asher Bernard Edward Bolin Melvin Dean Kemper Norman Francis Tegeler Stuart Orla Wendell Northrop Robert Alious Ramm Melvin Bernard Kohlschmidt Wilbur Gene Jackson Harold LeRoy Bartlett Michael Peter Schaaf Henry Kramer Atkinson Leo Claude Penry Floyd George Spindler Harold James Frohman Verne Arvin Northrop Richard Clark Young Ewing James William Cannon Harold Vincent Eppenbach Ferdinand John Hupp William Larson Lofquest Chambers Wayne Henry Rowse Darrel Dean Schipman Amelia Irvin Edwin Forbes William Howell Rees Inman Thomas Richard Watson Middlebranch Richard Mouris Faulhaber Redbird Garold James Wrede Good Active Market On Livestock Monday A very large crowd was in at tendance at the Memorial Day exercises held in this city last Sunday in the high school audi torium. A parade, headed by the O’Neill High School band of ninety pieces, formed at Sixth street and marched down to Second, then south to Everett, then north on Fourth to the auditorium. Fol lowing the band were members of the American Legion. At the auditorium a splendid program was rendered, which in cluded a splendid talk by Wiliam J. Froelich. At the conclusion of the exercises at the auditorium they marched to the cemetery, where the graves of the departed soldiers were decorated and taps sounded. Mrs. Barbara Winkler Mrs. Barbara Winkler died at thd farm home of her son, Joseph F.. northeast of Emmet this morn ing at 10:30 o’clock, after an ill ness of about six months, at the age of 80 years, 11 months and 16 days. The funjeral wlill be held from the Catholic church in Emmet on Saturday morning, June 5, 1943, at 10 a. m., Father Kovar officiating and burial in Calvary cemetery in this city at the side of her husband, who pass ed away in August, 1917. Barbara Spatz was born in Bo hemia on June 17, 1862. When a young girl she came to the United States and the family located in Butler county, Nebr. On Febru ary 18, 1884, she was united in marriage to Joseph Winkler, the marriage being performed at Bru no. Nebr., and shortly thereafter they moved to Holt county and lo cated northeast of Emmet. Five children were born of this union, four of whom survive. The child ren are: Joseph F., Emmet; Henry and Casper, Atkinson, and Paul, of Clarion, Penn. She is also sur vived by 17 grandchildren, two great grandchildren and one brother, besides a host of friends. Mrs. Winkler was one of the pioneer settlers of the country northwest of O’Neill. When they came here in 1884, 59 years ago this spring, there were not many settlers in that part of the county, but it filled up rapidly within the next few years. As a pioneer she endured many of the hardships of the pioneer of any country, but persevered* and during the past few years had enjoyed life in Em met. She was a charming lady and she will be missed by many in that neighborhood, outside of her immediate family. The Weather The county was visited by nice rains last Saturday and Sunday night. While the rainfall in this city was only .61 of an inch, the rain was much heavier over the rest of the county, ranging from lxk to 2Vz inches, and was quite general.

J., in this city last Sunday afternoon at 2:30 o’clock, after an illness of about ten days of heart trouble, at the age of 61 years, one month and five days. The funeral was held last Wednesday morning from the Catholic church in this city, Rev, Father Brick officiating, and bur ial in Calvary cemetery. Frank J. Connolly was born on a farm a half mile northwest of O'Neill on April 25, 1882, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Connolly, who were members of the Gen eral O’Neill colony who located O’Neill in May, 1874. He grew to manhood here and then spent several years ranching with his brothers south of this city. On June 23, 1920, he was united in marriage to Mrs. Anna Welch, of Hoboken, N. J., thq ceremony be ing performed in the Catholic church here by Rev. M. F. Cas sidy. After their marriage they lived in town for about four years and then moved east and settled in New Jersey, where he remain ed until about seven years ago when he returned to O’Neill. Since his return from the east he had been with his brothers in the cream business in this city. He is survived by two brothers, Pat rick J. and Thomas J., both of C Neill, five nephews and four nieces. His wife passed away sev eral years ago. Frank was a companionable man, witty, jolly and a good lis tener, willing to let others do the talking while he absorbed the witticisms and tales unfolded. He had a host of friends in the city and country who regretted to learn of his passing. Holt County Hay Crop Second In The Nation Cherry county, with 431,101 ac res of hay harvested, ranks first among the counties of the United States in hay production, the di rector of the census at Washing-* ton, D. C., reported late last week. Cherry county also leads1 in the number of cattle on hand. Holt county is second in hay produc tion, followed by St. Lawrence county, New York. Minnesota was listed the lead ing state in total hay acreage, ex clusive of sorghums, with Wiscon sin second. Michigan leads in al falfa acreage, but California was first in alfalfa production. Our great old Nebraska also led all other states in wild hay acre age with 2,432,885 acres. For Those Receiving Old Age Assistance ... ■■■■— Nebraska is facing a manpower shortage, and the State Dc ment of Assistance and Welfare wants to encourage all employable assistance recipients to contribute to the war effort by securing whatever employment they are able to assume. It should be remembered, however, that the assistance grants are not to be considered as a means for mak ing it possible to provide a labor supply at less than the going rates of wages in a community. When we take into consider ation the income of the old-age assistance client in determining his eligibility and the amount of his grant, we are only being fair i to him and to the other recipients in the state, as well as to the gen eral public. If the client is meet ing his needs from other sources, we cannot legally provide him with old-age assistance. We believe that most people would rather work for what they receive than to take assistance from a public agency. Small, ir regular earnings from employ ment of short duration will have little or no effect on eligibility for assistance or in the amount of the grant, but any regular employ ment must be considered in de termining eligibility and the amount of the payment. Assist ance grants to needy individuals are based upon needs, as determ ined by the application of a stand ard assistance to be paid. The State Assistance Department and the county agency will do every thing possible to prevent delay in reopening cases which have been closed because of employment, as soon as the recipients again be come eligible. In determining the amounts of the grants for persons who are employed only part time, every consideration will be given tc any additional needs which may arise from such employment (such as transportation, additional clothing, glasses et cetra). The State Assistance Depart ment wants to do everything in its power to be fair with the client and with the public, but eligibil ity and the amounts of assistance payments must be determined on the basis of a client’s needs. To accomplish this purpose, to con tribute to the labor supply, and to provide adequately for every needy individual, there must be close co-operation between the Department of Assistance, the clients, and the employers. Marriage Licenses Earl Ellsworth Watt of Upton, Wyo., and Mary Alice Fullerton of Atkinson, on May 30th. Rev. and Mrs. Kenneth Scott , went to Chambers on Wednesday. BREEZES FROM THE SOUTHWEST By Romaiae Saunders Atkinson, Nebr., Stax Route No. 5. The warlike races are learning that the peaceful races can also sight down a rifle barrel. The past is the handmaid of the future. Experiences of today lead to the unknown of tomorrow. Men are great not because of their wit and cleverness, but in proportion to the measure of their humility. Maybe it is alright to flatter yourself with the thought that every inconsequential job helps to “win the war.” There is much post-war plan ning. A unique plan comes from the Chinese, who prayed, “Lord, reform Thy world, and begin with ME.” Floyd Adams of Amelia, the ac comodating mail carrier on the Kola route, enjoyed a few days’ visit last week with his brother, Ernest, who came up early in the week from Lincoln, and after a visit with his sister, Mrs. Tom Murray, and their father, Rhody Adams at O’Neill, came out with Floyd, who had gone to O’Neill after him. Thirty shinng cars and as many capable ladies from the homes of Swan and Wyoming precincts, bringing supplies for a huge din ner and equipment for work; 35 men, three tractors, five 4-horse outfits and five spreaders, three 2-row listers and bags of seed corn. That was the organization of southwest citizens and their equipment that did things on a magnificent scale at the Fred richs home a week ago. It was probably the greatest “Bee” ever held in this end of the county. The ladies cleaned and scoured, painted walls and served the meal. Men planted fifty acres of corn and cleaned feed lots and corrals. Mr. Fredrichs has been confined to a hospital for seven weeks. Neighbors saw the need and have acted. Remember Pearl Harbor! One way to remember it is through little personal glimpses of the re action of some who went through it. Amid stark tragedy it seemed possible to see the humor. The attack came on December 7th. On the 10th a lady wrote home to the main land: “Our lives have been almost completely made over since Sunday. After all, when bombs start falling in one’s back yard one has to do something about it. Incidentally, they are a sure cure for constipation! All fancy bric-a-brac is relegated to the closet and house stripped for action. At the bank yesterday ev eryone entering was searched. Ail downtown store windows are taped. Nearly everyone is in some sort of uniform. My dog and cat sense all the trouble and disturb ance. Jumbo is nervous and jit tery and barks at everyone, while Puss Puss jumps every time the phone rings.” A group of public school stu dents in a Nebraska town signed a petition that the scriptures be not read nor prayer offered in the schools. In view of the taint of evolution on some of our schools this is rather a logical request. As this fantastic theory denies the only authentic record of man’s beginning, his history and destiny, as revealed in sacred scripture, such an attitude on the part of students is only natural But these young people might have a deeper reason, stemming from a sense of reverence rather than ridicule. When I was a child it was a custom to open school with scripture reading and prayer. Don’t know that it did any good or any harm. Certainly boys and girls were no better then than now. I give place to no one in my reverence for and devotion to the world’s greatest book, but I believe it inadvisable to introduce it in the public school—an insti tution that is open alike to believ ers and infidels, Jew and Gentile. There would be a dispute as to which version to use and while the various translations differ in phraseology, historically, doctrin eally and inspirationally they are one, but it would hardly do for a school board to say which to use. The home and the church have the responsibility, not the public schools, in sacred matters. Recently I tried to buy enough lumber to make a garden gate, but the lumber dealer had no lumber. A friend who was on the job at a large defense project in eastern Nebraska told me that what was called waste lumber was piled in long ricks as high as the lumber could be tossed, oil poured on and set on fire. This was new lumber, four to eight foot pieces, inch and two-inch stuff. Windows of good houses were broken, chains run through and hooked to powerful “cats,” the houses wrecked and burned. Others verify and add more to these accounts. Out here we are Thelma June Nissen Thelma June Nissen died at the Orchard Hospital at 11:20 o'clock p. m., on May 28, 1943, after an illness of but one day, at the age of 21 years, four months and five days. The funeral services were held at the Methodist church in Page, Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 o’clock, Rev. L. D. Carpenter and Rev. Beebe officiating, and burial in the Page cemetery. The fu neral was about the largest ever seen in that section of the county, people coming from many miles to pay their last respect to the departed. Thelma June Finley was born near Page, Nebr., on January 23, 1922, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Finley, pioneer res idents of that section of the coun ty. She grew to womanhood there and on May 31, 1940, was united in marriage to Donald O. Nissen, the ceremony being performed at Page. One son was born of this union, James Leland, who with his father are left to mourn the passing of a kind and affectionate wife and mother. She is also sur vived by her father and mother, three sisters and four brothers, besides a host of friends in the eastern part of the county. F. J. Dishner Hit By Car Last Saturday Evening While crossing the street at the corner of Sixth and Douglas streets last Saturday night about 10:30, F. J. Dishner was hit by a car and quite badly bruised and injured, but no bones wefe broken. Mr. Dishner was on his way home, walking from the hotel to the corner of Sixth and Douglas street, when he crossed the street to the south side. The car was coming from the west and swung south at Sixth street as if to make a turn, then the driver ap parently changed his mind and swung the car to the east. When the car swung south Mr. Dishner continued on his way across the street and was about two feet from the curb on the south side of the street when struck by the car. He was thrown to the ground, his head apparently strik ing the curb on the south side, tearing his right ear so badly that it was necessary to take twelve stitches in it. He was badly bruis ed on the left leg. He was taken to the hospital immediately after the accident and remained there until Wednesday, when he was taken home. He is still confined to his bed, but is getting along nicely. Frank was unlucky in be ing hit, but fortunate indeed that his injuries were not more ser ious than they are. The car was driven by Young Wright, about 21, of Chambers, and in the car with him at the time was a young fellow named Harvey, from Page. They claim they did not see Mr. Dishner be for they hit him. not allowed a stick of lumber. That was not all the waste, I am told. Should a keg of nails or spikes get upset, it was left. Men drawing $100 a week worked about two days of that time and | had a system of “hide out” three or four days. One energetic gent went to his foreman and asked if he didn’t have something for him j to do as he was tired of “hiding' out.” “Yes,” said the foreman, “1 got a good job for you. See those pools of water the rain made last i night? You get a bucket and carry j that water across the highway.” The highway was a quarter mile: away. My friend returned to his “hide out” but drew a full week’s pay. Cost plus—plus 6 per cent. And did those boys know how to run up the cost! If the cost was $100,000 the contractor had a profit of $6,000; if $1,000,000, he’d swell his profit to $60,000. Who paid it? Uncle Sam through a hundred million patriots who will spend their last dime and sacri fice life itself for an ideal, while outrageous graft does mat nullify these sacrifices. Does Mrs. Roosevelt still think America “can afford to be wasteful?” Whatever else that group call ing themselves Jehovah’s Witnes ses may have accomplished, they have kept state and federal courts occupied. A year ago the supreme court in Washington, by a five for and four against, upheld the right of cities to tax these people out of circulation. Chief Justice Stone wrote the dissenting opinion. The majority opinion held in effect that religious freedom goes no farther than that you may believe what you like but can’t teach it. Swinging behind the constitution al guarantee of freedom of ex pression some influential organ izations came to the help of the Witnesses, asked for a review of the matter and the court has now reversed itself. All the members of the court stick by the original viewpoint, but a new member, Mr. Justice Rutledge having suc ceeded Mr. Byrnes, joined with the original minority, thus set ting aside the restrictions. The Washington Post called it a vic tory for freedom. The Witnesses have a strange mixture of the ological truth and error and they are at liberty now to go ahead and peddle it, but many citizens are indifferent to all propaganda, and others have the discernment to sift truth and error.

This new law removes the re strictions which have barred most local banks from making small installment loans. Heretofore the loans by banks throughout the state usually, except in the larger cities, have been commercial and agricultural loans repayable in one sum. Such installment loans as were made usually were hand led by private agencies. In order that the public might have ac cess to installment loans at rea sonable rates, the banks proposed to the legislature that they would make such loans on a basis equit able to the borrow and the bank, providing the way was opened to them without prohibitive license charges. The new law now opens this field to the small banks throughout the state. To small borrowers who get this service from banks for the first time, the saving will be conspicuous be cause the maximum installment interest rate for banks is consid erably lower than the maximum rate permitted loan companies. The Nebraska Bankers Associa tion, in announcing this new ar rangement for the installment borrower, states that the banks welcome the opportunity of serv ing the installment borrower at a more moderate rate. Would Junk Wallace The following from the pen of J. L. Hixon of Paxton, Nebr., ap peared in the public Pulse col umn of Tuesday’s World-Herald: “Is any good being accomplish-! ed in Washington? Wrangling for months over the tax situation and nothing done yet! John L. Lewis is dictating to the government what thev can do and what they can’t, strikes on everywhere and our administration is not big, enough to fulfill the oath they took when accepting office. Is this the kind of democracy our boys are fighting and dving for? God forbid. Then, Vice President Wal lace comes along and says iunk all the synthetic rubber nlants and buy rubber from South Amer ica. What have they done for us? We want a market for our grain here I say to every farmer, iunk Wallace and many others of his kind.” T.arffo Cr^wd Attends Memorial Day Exercises Brisk action dominated the livestock market at the local auction last Monday. Hog re ceiDts were very heavy and the cattle run was moderate. Prices looked steady to strong on most classes of cattle; hog prices were lower than a week ago. The general market undertone re mains strong and firm. The best lightweight steer calves topped at $16.45 with the long end ranging in price from $14.50 to $15.75. Heifer calves paid upwards to $14.90 with the bulk going at $13.50 to $14.50. Yearling steers cashed mostly from $14.00 to $14.50, with a scat tered few reaching $15.00. Sup plies were rather limited. Heifers in this class topped at $13.50; bulk moved at $12.50 to $13.00. Good fleshy b£ef cows cashed mostly from $10.50 to $11.50 with a few going a little higher. Cows with less Quality and weight paid paid from $9.00 to $10.00. Weighty bulls brought $11.50 to $12.50. Hog supplies were heavy and prices eased off somewhat. Choice butchers bulked at $13.70 to $13.80. However an extreme top of $13.85 was claimed by a few. Sows sold mostly from $13.50 to $1365. Feeder pigs -rang'd in price from $13 25 to $14.00.

The Army now offers more educational opportunities than ever before, and S-Sgt. Victor Bredehoeft of O’Neill is one who will share in them. He has been selected for advanced college training after passing a special competitive examination and a reviewing board of officers. S-Sgt. Bredehoeft has left the west coast ordnance training center at Camp Santa Anita for his course at Uni versity of Utah, Salt Lake City. This is part of the Army spe cialized training program which is attempting to pick men who have demonstrated, unusual abil ity out of the ranks and give them additional training. S-Sgt. Brede hoeft was assigned to Ordnance from his reception center after his various preliminary tests showed that he was suited for the highly technical tasks of Ordnance, which orignates, supplies, main tains and repairs all weapons, am munition, and vehicles used by our Army. He is the son of Fred G. Brede hoeft of O’Neill and was employ ed by the Texaco Bulk Plant in O’Neill before entering the ser vice. Tin Can Collection Drive Is Now On County Chairman of Salvage Harry Ressel and myself have re ceived instructions from the state chairman to conduct a tin can collection drive throughout Holt county. Similar drives will be conducted by the other counties in the state. You who have been saving tin cans in anticipation of a drive will surely be glad to hear this. Formerly all tin cans from Ne braska had to be sent to a de-tin ning plant in Illinois, but there is a new “shredding” plant, lo cated in Kansas City, where cans from this area can now be sent. Every pound of steel from tin cans now becomes copper. There fore, we are asking every family to save EVERY tin can, properly prepared from now until victory, and they will be collected at reg ular intervals. Tin cans are small steel drums coated with tin. Copper is our Number One critical war ma terial. A tin can becomes copper in this manner: The tin is removed. The re maining steel is shredded into small steel “cornflakes." The shredded steel is shipped to cop per mines. Every copper mine has water in it which must be pump ed out. This water is a copper sulphate solution which is passed over the steel shreddings and continues on as iron sulphate, leaving the copper from the water as a precipitate in the vat. The shreddings are removed, not as steel now but as copper. Every pound of steel has become a pound of copper. All cans of a gallon size or smaller can be used. The need for copper is so great that milk cans, paint cans, varnish cans, oil cans, whether tin coated or not must be shipped to the shredding plants. Copper makes brass and brass is needed for shell casings, air plane guns, and other kinds of guns, bigger and more powerful than those of our enemies. This year the war will take 1,750,000 tons of copper—650,000 more tons than were used last year. Plans are not completed for de pots in each town in the county for your tin cans, but they should be completed by next week, so watch your county paper for an nouncements. Everyone should be familiar with the method of preparing tin cans for salvage, but will repeat them: Remove the label and wash and dry the can. Now remove the bottom and flatten the can by stepping on it. Slip the top and bottom inside and store in a box in a dry place so they will not rust. Then watch for collection dates. > And do not forget that waste fats are still a vital part of our salvage work, and will be until victory. Every home should have a small amount of waste fats, though our government is not asking for any fat® that we can use in cooking. And do keep the wornout silk and ”v1on hose mov ing to the collection boxes. MRS. GUY COLE, Holt Canity Chairman Women’s Salvage Activities.
