Farmers Must Obtain
Permission For Other Job
To avoid loss of their agricul
tural deferments, farmers who
plan to engage in essential work
other than farming during the
winter months must have written
permission from the selective ser
vice local boards before leaving
the farm, Brig. Gen. Guy N. Hen
ninger, state director for selective
service, warned today.
He said selective service local
boards have orders to cancel the
deferments of farmers who leave
the farm without permission.
The general explained that Se
lective service encourages farm
ers, who have completed their
own work, to take temporary jobs
in such essential activities as meat
packing, manufacture of war ma
terials, construction, and transpor
tation, but that care must be taken
to assure the return of irreplace
able farmers to the farm in the
Farmers who are between the
ages of 18 and 45 and who want
to work off the farm during the
winter, should take these steps:
First, obtain permission to leave
the farm from the county agent.
Second, take the county agent’s
statement to the selective service
local board and seek the board’s
permission to leave the farm. This
step protects the farmer’s agricul
tural deferment. Third, report to
the local office of the United
States Employment Service for

splendid trade this fall. The
weather has been exceptionally
nice and every day of the week
the city has been crowded with
shoppers, coming from practically
every county in this section of the

thing lacking this fall has been
the shortage of certain lines of
merchandise, but notwithstanding
this handicap the season’s sales
will far exceed those of any fall
for several years.

The Undefeated Cardinals
Win Another Victory
The St. Mary’s Cardinals won
their third straight victory of the
season, with no defeats, when
they journeyed to Newport last
Friday and trimmed Newport
high 25-14. The Cardinals took
the lead early in the game and
they were never seriously threat
ened. Froelich was high point
man for the Cards with seven
points while Grady was second
with six. The second team made
it a grand sweep with a 30-0 vic
tory. Ryan and Bosn were high
point men with twelve and eleven
points respectively.
Last Monday the Cardinals went
to Atkinson where they won their j
fourth straight victory from the;
game St. Joseph’s team by a score
of 24-10. St. Mary’s again out
classed their opponents and held i
a safe margin throughout the
game. Froelich was again high
point mjm for the Cards with
seven points while Grady and j
Kelly shared second with six j
points each. The second team
lost their game to the Bluejays
by the count of 14-5. Ryan
was high point man for the Cards
with four points.
St. Mary’s first home game of
the season is Monday, December
27, when they will be hosts to
the boys from St. Mary’s Acad
emy of Grand Island. Although
these two teams have not played
each other for about five years
Grand Island has always had a
good team and this should be a
very good game. Let’s all at
tend and help the Cards try to win
their fifth straight game.

The Truth Will Out
The special House investigating
committee under Representative
Harold W. Smith (D.) of Virginia,
which has just filed a 30-page re
port on the illegal activities of the
OPA, represents one of many ser
ies of damaging disclosures that
should make every American vow
never again to put too much trust
in one man, or group of men, in
the executive branch of the Gov
ernment. The committee detailed
its findings as follows:
(1) Found in the files of former
OPA Counsel David Ginsberg “a
well devised and planned scheme
to control the profits of American
industry by freezing them at the
level earned by the industry dur
ing the 1936-39 period, regardless
of whether or not there had been
increases in the prices of products
since that time.”
(2) The power assumed by
OPA to suspend the rights of in
dividuals or businesses such as
restaurants to receive rationed
goods amounts to the taking of
private property without due pro
cess of law. Suspension orders di
rected against merchants require
the “guilty” business man to dis
play his “guilt” to the public at
large in the same fashion, as con
victs in medieval times were
branded or mutilated for the pur
pose of drawing “public ridicule
and contempt.”
(3) The OPA violates the sanc
tity of the home through an army
of enforcement agents.
“The illegal, useless and con
flicting regulations promulgated
by the OPA are creating such
great confusion that it is impos
sible for the average citizen to
know how to comply,” the Con
gressional report said. “The com
mittee believes that the facts here
presented reveal practices which
. . might conceivably lead to
the undermining of our basic Con
stitutional provisions for separate
and independent executive, legis
lative and judicial departments of
“It follows that concentration
of all three categories into the
hands of the executive branch
with merely a limited and cir
cumscribed review by the courts j
violates a basic principle of the !
Constitution and constitutes a
dangerous approach to totalitar
Since a Democratic majority
signed this report, it can hardly j
be termed “political,” although
no Democrat can overlook or deny 1
the fact that the original OPA act
was passed by a predominating
Democratic Congress at the insist
ence of a Democratic executive.

Assessments, taxes, holdouts of
one kind and another are getting
to be just about the No. 1 business
of the country.
Among other “post war” prob
lems, what is to be done with Hit

rebuild, maybe paper hangers will
be needed.
A lot of clodhoppers far out in
the hinterlands are learning that
the income tax is not all. They
have been hit for $2 to have the
papers made out.
The community has been sad
dened by a death in the Ole Han
sen home near Amelia. It was
reported to the writer Tuesday
that Mrs. Hansen had awakened
that morning to discover her
husband cold in death beside her.
A 13-year-old Illinois boy was
found a suicide. The reason given
was that he had lost tickets to a
school play and feared the school
authorities who were pressing the
child to pay for the lost tickets. It
is not unusual for teachers to
allot to pupils tickets for a school
entertainment for them to sell.
The tragic incident in the Illinois
town will render such practice
open to criticism.

of jungleland on her flight abroad
in native fashion, nose to nose.

Forms of salutation and modes of
hospitality are as varied as there
are races. In a sparsely settled
section of the state I once drew
up to a human habitation, a com
bination of dugout and sod walls.
It proved to be the abode of a
bachelor of foreign tongue and
well along in years. I was made
welcome and as an emblem of hos
pitality as I started again on my
way he presented me with a large
onion. It is the kindly sentiment,
the good will of fellow toward fel
low, that is important even when
symbolized in an onion.

to meet her husband who flew up
from the south. Bill Fryrear sus

Prophetic Words
In the light of the trends in
Washington today, it is interesting
to look backward toward a warn
ing given to America a decade ago
by the governor of one of the
great states of the Union. In his
inaugural address, this governor
“There is a present dangerous
tendency to forget a fundamental
of American democracy—the ten
dency to encourage consolidation
of power at the top of a govern
mental structure alien to our sys
ttm and more closely akin to a
dictatorship or the central com
mittee of a communist regime.
We have met difficulties before
this and have solved them in ac
cordance with the basic theories
of representative democracy. Let
us not at this time pursue the
easy road of centralization of au
thority, lest some day we discover
too late that our liberties have
And, in one of his radio addres
ses, the governor again touched
upon his basic theme through
which he was appealing for elec
tion, saying:
“It was clear to the framers of
our Constitution . . . that any ad
ministration attempting to make
all laws for the whole nation . . .
would inevitably result at some
future time in a dissolution of
the union itself.
“The doctrine of regulation and
legislation by master minds has
been too glaringly apparent in
Washington during the last ten
years. ... To bring about gov
ernment by oligarchy masquerad
ing as democracy, it is funda
mentally essential that practically
all authority and control be cen
tralized in our national govern

prophetic words was Franklin D.

joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in
the city of David a Saviour, wnich
is Christ the Lord.” “To all peo
ple.” Everybody, everywhere.
Heaven’s highest gift was not be
stowed for a favored few. No one
has a monopoly. Therein lies the
universal appeal of the Christmas
spirit., If it were wooed every day
life’s gall and wormwood, its
sighs and tears would disappear.
But once a year, one brief mo
ment may heal the soul’s corrod
ing wounds. Earth runs red with
ruin and death this Christmas
night, but that story, that an
nouncement brought by messen
gers out of the sky has never
been revoked.
A stirring patriotic appeal to
return to the American way of
life comes out of Dixieland. It is
an address on “the New Deal and
Diocletian’’ by Clayton Rand and
is sent out by the Dixie Press of
Gulfport, Miss. This copyrighted
work will doubtless have a wide
circulation as a presidential elec
tion approaches. “I light my
torch,” said Mr. Rand, “at Runny
mede, Concord, Lexington and, as
a southern democrat, at Appomat
tox.” He believes “only the indif
ference, the apathy of the Ameri
can people can destroy our inde
pendence and freedom. Given the
facts I believe our people will be
come aroused .... and public
opinion will salvage the Goddess
of Liberty and our American
freedom from what has become
the Old Deal and the World War.”
And then the ringing appeal to
crush what he believes to be
“sinister influences within that
would destroy our individual free-1
dom, our traditional independence
and our American way of
thought.” A new battle cry of
freedom arises out of the deep j
I can join in the song but am
not able to name the author. Do
you know a better way to begin
your day?
“The day will bring some lovely!
I say it over each new dawn.
“Some gay, adventerous thing to
Against my heart when it is gone.”
And so I rise—and go to meet
The day with wings upon my feet.
I came upon it unaware—
Some sudden beauty without
A snatch of song— a breath of
A poem lit with golden flame;
High tangled bird notes—keenly
Like flying color on the wind.
No day has ever failed me quite:
Before the gravest day is done
I find some misty purple bloom,
Or a late line of crimson sun.

Will Establish Children’s
Hospital In Omaha
A hospital to provide specialized
facilities and care for the children
of Nebraska is to be built at
Omaha as soon as materials are
Since it is for Nebraska and
Iowa children—and since 40 per
cent of the beds are to be for
children whose families cannot
afford to pay for the service—the
board of trustees anticipates that
many out-state Nebraskans will
be glad to give financial support
to the project, either through pur
chase of memberships, or through
outright gifts.
With that in mind, the board of
trustees announces that four types
of memberships have been estab
lished. They are:
Life, $500; Charter, $100; Friend
of-Children, $50; Contributing $25.
Smaller or larger gifts will be
gratefully appreciated.
The hospital fund was started
with a gift of $117,000 from the
Omaha World-Herald and its fam
ily—since then other substantial
contributions, ranging up to $10,
000, have been received.
Persons wishing to purchase
memberships, or to make Christ

to mail their checks to “Children’s

[ Careful Driving Saves
Lives, Gas And Oil
Probably no other agency steals
the joy, pleasure, and zest from
the Christmas holiday season as
the death-dealing, property, dam
aging motor collisions which, if
apportioned among the families
of Nebraska, would effect one in
approximately every 106.
During this season, pedestrians
are caught in a mad whirl of so
cial and business activities. As
they scurry about their shopping
ladened with bundles, they are
more apt to disregard the safety
rules which under ordinary con
ditions they would respect. Hence,
a driver must increase his vigi
lance and if pedestrians refuse to
look out for themselves, the mo
torist must look out for them.
“Drinks are not for drivers” is
an old story but still good advice.
Regardless of how popular drink
ing may be, it is definitely taboo
when one intends to operate a
motor vehicle, for driving must be
done with a sound mind and the
utmost seriousness. During the
month of November of this year,
the Nebraska Patrol made 41 ar
rests for driving while intoxicat
ed as compared to 48 arrests for
the same violation in November,
1942. Not alone is the drunken
driver to be considered, but also
the drunken pedestrian on the
highway. The Patrol also made
18 arrests for pedestrians being
A glance at the rest of the Pa
trol’s November report will reveal
the wide-spread, activity of the de
partment and its constant effort
to make driving safer. Among the
559 arrests, 150 were for speeding
which is considerable more than
the 131 cases for November of
1942. Reckless driving arrests
numbered 53 which, is an im
provement over the 83 reckless
driving violations of November,
Other arrests included: No op
erator’s license, 76; failure to ob
serve stop signs, 43; improper
lights, 25; truck overweight on
capacity plates, 34; and desertion
from the armed forces, 27, in
which cases the deserters were
turned over to the Provost Mar
Patrolmen reported 1,187 ser
vices rendered, which included as
sisting motorists with tire changes,
towing in stranded cars, and like
good acts.
The Patrol recovered 9 stolen
automobiles during November
while 165.866 miles were being
patrolled. 81 accidents were in
vestigated and reported and 40
safety talks were made by the
Many motorists are still care
less about automobile lights. Pa
trolmen issued 1,555 violation
cards during November; 1,080 of
these cards were for improper
lights. The other cards being for
no operator’s license, no license
plates, one plate missing, and
other equipment violations. In
cases where a violation card is
given, which is on equipment vio
lations, the violator must correct
the violation in a limited time
and have the police, county sher
iff or patrol certify the correction
before the case is closed.
To complete the Patrol’s No
vember activity, there were 418
warning cards issued motorists in
cases where circumstances did not
warrant arrest. These cards con
tain a request asking co-operation
of the violator toward the promo
tion of safety on Nebraska’s high
ways. Copies of the violation are
filed with the respective driver’s
license application of the violator.
158 of these cards were issued for
speeding; 93 for stop sign viola
tions; 64 for reckless driving, and
27 for failure to dim headlights.
In concluding the Patrol’s No
vember report, states C. J. Sand
ers, captain of the Nebraska Safe
ty Patrol, it must be remembered
that no one can say exactly how
many motor vehicle accidents are
due to a particular cause, because
most accidents have a combina
tion of several causes—many of
which are due to violations which
have been listed in this activity
report. When violations cease—
accidents will cease, warns Mr.

along nicely and it will not be

back at his old place of business,
a fact which will be pleasing
news to his many friends in this
city and county.
