Anybody around Emmet know
“Duke”? Well, Duke is a longish,
little white dog with black and
brown splotches all over his short
sleek coat. He has lately dug up
a bit of notoriety for himself and
goes about nowadays with that
“nobody loves me" look. This par
ticular representative of man’s
best friend belongs to the Cole
family and left shut up in the
Buick one night last week. The
results were terrible and most dis
heartening. In his efforts to es
cape from the car, the little dog
ripped the upholstery on the roof
and around the doors of the car.
It will probably be some time be
fore the interior of the car can
be properly repaired.

On Tuesday, November 23, my
secretary, Mr. Huyck, and I called
on all those in the armed forces
from the Fourth Nebraska Dis
trict whom we knew to be in the
hospitals in Washington. At Wal
ter Reed Hospital we found Sgt.
Milton K. Williams, who bailed
out of a flying fortress when it
was returning from a bombing
mission over Germany. Sergeant
Williams was in a cheerful mood
as he told how lucky he was to
have picked such a good place in
which to land. It was only a short
distance from a Catholic hospital.
When the Germans who picked
him up rushed him there the
nurses was out in front waiting
for him with a stretcher and his
injuries were immediately treat
ed. He praised the care and at
tention he received and the many
little favors he was given even
though the supplies at the hos
pital were severely limited. He
also praised the work of the En
glish doctors—prisoners of war—
who were taking care of wounded
American and British prisoners in
German army hospitals. Although
he has suffered the loss of his left
foot, he feels extremely lucky to
be back in the States and soon to
be released from the hospital. Ser
geant Williams grew up at North
Platte. Nebr., where his mother,
Mrs. Mabel G. Williams, still lives.
At the new Naval Medical Cen
ter in Bethesda, Mainland, a short
distance from the District line, we
found Yoeman Third Class Edna
Cool, whose mother, Mrs. Cynthia
Blain, lives at Oshkosh, where
Miss Cool graduated from high
school. Yoeman Cool has almost
recovered from the after effects
of a bad coHand is almost ready
to return to duty in the Bureau
of Personnel here in Washington.
She took her boot training at
Hunter College, N. Y., and later
was stationed at Millegeville, Ga.,
and Stillwater, Okla. She is very
enthusiastic about her work and
is anxious to get back on the job.
Also at the Naval Medical Cen
ter wq visited wi*h Guy Nesmith,
whose mother, Mrs. R. Roberts,
lives at Loup City, Nebr. Before
his illness he was stationed at the
Navy Yards in Washington. He is
recovering from an appendectomy
and is almost ready to return to
duty. All the patients were pleas

All members of the House from
Nebraska have joined the Repub
lican Drive-For-Action Commit
tee, formed for the purpose of
forcing the Democratic leadership
to put an end to its dilatory tac
tics and bring out of committees
for consideration and action some
important measures that have
been buried there. Sixty-four Re
publican members from 26 dif
ferent states now comprise the
Drive-For-Action Committee. Re
sults have already been attained.
The Commodity Credit Corpora
tion bill has been passed by the
House and enough signatures have
been obtained to bring H. R. 2887
before the House. Passage of this
bill would make possible an in

oil and gasoline so badly needed
in the war effort and at home.

Water Power
Vital Fuel
The numerous war projects, air bases and
wartime industries located throughout Ne
braska, require a vast amount of Electric
Power. Yet, through the interconnected
facilities of Nebraska's public power sys
tem, that vital power was available almost
Instantly, thus allowing large wartime
projects to locale in our state. Better still,
these vast power demands are supplied
with comparatively small use of America's
vital fuel supplies, namely; coal and oil,
so essential in the successful conduct of
—an amount which would require
279.800.000 POUNDS OF COAL OR
YEAR if generated by other meth
ods. That's important, for, through
this saving. Your Consumers Public

supplies of fuel available for other
vital wartime needs.
