It's All in the Point of View # Prairieland Talk — As Long as Men Have Will to Kill Wars Will Thunder Across the Earth By ROMAINE SAUNDERS LINCOLN—The army in Kor ea opposing the communists, ac cording to latest figures, includes 150,000 Americans, 100,000 South Koreans and 25,000 from various countries identified wi t h the Unitec^ Nations setup. Added to the present fighting 'orce the list of killed and wounded prob ably no less than 200 thou sand American men have been through the burning hell of battle. Mr. Wil son’s dream of world war to end wars turns to ashes in the tragic mockery that unrolls Romalne from day to Saunders day on the croll of world events. Wars thunder across the earth ind industry reaps the reward at he price of blood and tears, of lesolated homes and widespread uin. How long shall the bugle notes nuster marching armies into re volting scenes of carnage to drive ;he plowshare of destruction :hrough fair lands? Just as long js men have the will to kill: Just is long as there are men who should be killed. And from out of the tragic pages of the centuries drum beats if battle warn that it will be un til that change comes that shall never more change. • * • Now come the findings of an “exhaustive survey” purporting to be what the recent census was all about here in Nebraska. Ac cording to the conclusions of one of the profs at the college of agri culture, we stand at the head of the 48 states in some matters, no tably Nebraskans live longer and have less worries. The number of citizens who attain the age of 65 increases year-by-year. Nothing unusual about that. Nebraska was settled by youth and they have grown old with the state. A little more than a score of years back across the trail we have come there were still homestead filings being made and today there are isolated tracts of gov ernment land within the state. That there is a decline in popu lation may be an advantage in view of the trend to enlarge farm and ranch holdings. * * • April. Comes again a day to linger where stately cotton woods point a finger at the blue above them on a sun drenched afternoon and the meadow larks trill a tune; where the river-ripples by you flow, where the water lilies' grrow and sunbeams play upon the sand—where mystic echoes whisper peace in prairieland! * * « The Frontier and the Atkinson Graphic were among the 20 state papers to be awarded places of note in journalism circles at the recent Nebraska Press association gathering in Lincoln. Mr. Stew art, of The Frontier, is active in association affairs and Mr. Kelly, of the Graphic, is a former pres ident of the association. The late D. H. Cronin, for a half-century connected with the newspaper interests of Holt county as pub isher of The Frontier, was long tctive in association work and at one time served as association president. Mr. Stewart has been reelected to the board of manag ers. * * • Nature has a way of closing the highways about this time of year so as to keep folks at home to get acquainted with their fam ilies. A recent number of a haughty magazine devotes a few pages to Nebraska, or more specifically to a Nebraskan, Willa Cather, who as a kid lived at Red Cloud and at the dawn of the 20th century took to writing. In the course of her life span, which terminated in 1947 to join the long muster roll of the dead, sne had brought out a number of tales of pioneer days, a period when homestead ers met often at a neighbor’s sod abode to break the spell of what moderns speak of as “the loneli ness of the terrifying new life.” It was not so "terrifying” as to exclude the thrill of daily new adventures and the sense of lardly ownership as you looked out across the waving grass of your domain when holding down a government claim. Sod houses gave way to new architectural fancies and dormer windows, ornate porch trimmings and carved posts which vulgar eyes of this generation resent as a thing “tortured by the turning lathes into something hideous.” Maybe today we are so over whelmed with the commonplace in literature, the vulgar in art, the cold formality of architecture, broken and mud-spattered walks along dreary streets that neither the purple and gold of sunset, the stars glowing out of the night above prairieland nor the beauty of a carved piece of wood have an appeal. * * * In the year 713 B.C., an He brew seer had a look at night life on O street, San Fernando Road and highways the country over, so he wrote: “The chariots shall be with flaming torches in the day of His preparation; they shall rage in the streets, they shall jostle one against another in the broad ways, they shall run like the lightnings.” * * • Helen Kellar has been some thing of a globe trotter. Now at 70 she takes off for Africa and wants to get into the real thing where she can feel the throb of native drums and the hoof-beats of running zebras. -1 — — A series of district meetings are being planned by Miss Nixon, executive secretary of the Ne braska Public Library commis sion beginning in April. May 18 has been set as the date for the meeting at the O’Neill public li brary. Wayne, Lexington, Chap pell, Chadron and Crete are the 'other points where meetings will be held. According to a report received at the commission office in the state house from Mrs. D. R. Davis, Atkinson folks have gone all out for book reading, as many as 150 being taken from the town j library in one day. r i YOU SHOULD ATTEND THIS 19TH SEMI-ANNUAL Rosebud Hereford Association Purebred Hereford SHOW AND SALE •i Gregory Livestock Auction, Gregory.
