With ears atune to the soft flut

by the announcement of “reac-1

military gtr base, in other words,
a target for enemy bombs if the
expected invasion breaks lose in
the months ahead. Sometlung
fine is fading away from the cap

scramble for factories, industrial
growth and federal financed in
stitutions, the more of which are
in a community the more abun
dant are the targets for bomb
raids. This may not be and again
it may be. Much of the world
has become our enemies that
some day may try another Pearl

might everywhere but guarding
our shores, what is there to hin
der it? Does the government air
base mean further encroachment
on our capitol city as a cultural
T That little state of Rhode Is
land also has its scandals. The
treasurer of a university is ac
cused with swiping $i5,0u0 of tne
schools funds. . , According to
one member of the faculty of the
state university there was some
census padding in 1890 by a few
of Nebraska’s biggest towns—a
disclosure which is not very im
portant ,. What are termed “mid
western democrats” have de
clared themselves for the renotn
rnation of Mr. Truman and his
former running mate, Vice-Presi
dent Barkley. The midwest demo
crats are probably the midwest
federal job "holders. . . In 1850 a
writer in the Dublin Nation sized
us up: “A wonderful empire em
erging amid the silence of the
earth and daily adding to its
power and pride.” We have made
quite a noise to disturb the “si
lence of the earth" in the past 100
years. , . Jeannette Rankin was
the first woman to break into
congress, a member of the house
from Montana. Now there are 10
women in the house and one in

year for looking at the sea every

see if a pirate s-*ip is coming, of
which there has been none since
the 17th century.

What is this thing now that
Holt county patriots who work
their land are supposed to do to
get a permit, a license, a com
mission, a certificate or what is
it the paid functionaries are
handing out? I wonder how mas
ter farmers such as Den Murphy
out in the Michigan settlement,
Bill Grothe up by Emmet or
George Meals out from Atkinson
like the idea of being told what
to do, when to do it or whether it
be beans or turnip seed they are
to plant. Probably none of these
oldtimers care to be relieved of
the responsibility of thinking for
themselves and determining
which shall be what with respect
to their sowing and reaping.

On Feb. 13 at the Holt Co. Court House Annex at O'Neill
at 1 o'clock pjn., the Hob Co. Noxious Weed District will hold
its annual meeting. Reports on the past year's business of the
weed district will be submitted by the secretary and treasur
er. The terms of office of two of the Dist. supervisors having
expired—from Dist. 1, Robert E. Miller, and from Dist 4. A.
C. Bouska—the voters of the Holt Noxious Weed Dist will
proceed to the election of two supervisors from the above
mentioned districts for terms of three years. Nominations will
be made from the floor.
A levy for the operation of the weed district will then be
considered and voted on. This levy is to be made only on real
estate outside the corporate limits of cities, towns and vil
lages in Hob Co. Any legal land owner outside such cities,
towns and villages is eligible to vote or hold office. It is to
every such eligible voter's interest to be at this meeting. It is
really your business and the weed district supervisors would
certainly appreciate your attendance.
Mr. Paul Sands, of the State Weed District office, will be
with us to discuss our war on weeds, and also some of the
latest developments on weed eradication*. Vet Instructors
and their classes are welcome and urged to attend and take
part in the discussion. Doughnuts and coffee will be served
following the meeting. Come and get acquainted with us.
