A Shed of Your Own
By ROMAINE SAUNDERS, 4110 South 51st St . Lincoln 6, Nebr.
Last year, as they have it figured out back there
in Washington, 1,200.000 new dwelling houses went
up across the nation. I know him quite well-knew
him when he was next to a beggar. He has contrib
uted a few score new houses to
the list of fine homes and is
still at it, one of his recently
built, fine houses setting where
a year ago it was open prairie
He asks $60,000 dollars for a
deed and title to that “modem
mansion.” Sixty thousand for a
shed you can call your own!
Many fine new homes now
stand in attractive surround
ings in O’Neill where some
years ago it was open prairie. Komaine
It was in the '90 s, a period Raun era
of hard times, that a white painted dwelUng of
some six or seven rooms stood two blocks west
of First street and a block south of what now
is known as Everett street, that the owner offered
for sale for $50-and no taker for a time as I recall,
but he finally came down a few dollars, got the
best he could and sought his elderado in other
parts. But times, conditions and human notions
change. A sixty thousand dollar mansion of today
may be a six hundred dollar cottage in a year or

A star in the flag of our country now glows for
those Hawaiian Islands out in the blue waters of
the Pacific ocean. Citizens of that little floral
adorned. island kingdom had looked into the past
history of the mainland of which they were to be
come a part as another territory taking on state
hood and had discovered that the great achieve
ments of our country were the fruits of Republican
state and national administrative heads; so the first
election in Hawaii a near 100 percent vote was
cast, the Republican candidates in the majority when
election returns were in. And doubtless it was noted
by our island neighbors that the Democratic ' land

A name that begins with a K ending with v. A
notable from across the widespread Atlantic and
then deep in eastern and northern Europe, one who
floats the banner of Russian Reds. As an outgrowth
of our Vice President Nixon going abroad, the not
able from communists’ lands is to visit our own
notables in the nation’s Capital which we know as
Washington early next month. Coming here to see
for himself a bit of life as we Americans live it,
to talk of it and devise ways of peace or this troubl
ed world. The milk of human kindness throbs in the
breasts of mankind everywhere and eventually
trouble mukers become fed up on it. Peace—is the
cold war about to melt?
Again highways and prairie trails lead to Cham
bers and here they come to see the fun that only
the county fair can dish up. What we ancients
knew as the Holt county fair, got going in 1884 or
'85 at the then "fair grounds” about a mile east of
O'Neill's present Fourth street, the chief exhibits
then the big watermelons raised out in the Michi
gan settlement and the Longhorn Texas cattle from
the McClure and the El wood ranches. Down at
Chambers it was once the South Fork fair, now
encompastng all of Holt county. Fair time was once
autumn time, now under the glare of midsummer
sun, and there friend meets friend to enjoy the fun.

A block north of Douglas street on 6th street
stands the attractive temple devoted to Christian
services where the Methodists of the O Neill com
munity gather from week to week. Where that
ediface now stands stood the first church building
devoted to Methodism of pioneer days. It was in
use those days before becoming dedicated as a
sacred place of worship, the school room of the
pioneer kids, the late Kate Mann being the teacher.
The only one of those pioneer primary school kids
attending Miss Mann's school in that Methodist
church still here is the venerable John Sullivan of
just south of the river. And it may be that L. G.
Gillespie is the oldest surviving member of that
church But I do not believe that Lloyd was in Kate
Mann's primary class conducted in the old church

A Wicked Pebble
Now would be a good time for all of us to read
the Communist Manifesto or to re-read it.
When it was written many years ago and when
the political principal of the “dictatorship of the
Proletariat” was first voiced and first written down,
it scarcely made more impact on the world than
a pebble thrown casually in a pond.
The principal anticipates that the “prole” (the
working man) must be guided until some future
date when there will be no distinction drawn be
tween the worker and the employer, between the
citizen and the political leader, between the gov
erned and governor, and is being carried out just
as was planned.
In the writings of Stalin anti Lenin it was antici
pated that many different approaches would be
necessary to bring the world in line with their
political and economic beliefs.
The history of the relationship between Com
munism and the free world's economic and political
systems, has been controlled, unfortunately, by the
When they want to l>e nice, they are nice. When
they want to be tough, they get tough. When they
want to be passive, they are passive.
But don’t ever forget this-they are in position
to call the cards and they have »x?en and are doing
so now.
And we must never forget this: Just as they
have decided to foster what they call good inter
national relations in considering a trip by Khrush
chev to the United States, they can decide tomor
row or after his visit that they want to play tough
They will choose whatever method they wish at
the moment and that little pebble thrown into the
pond during the revolutionary movement in Russia
has produced waves of the highest proportions
This does not mean that we should quit trying,
that we should not welcome Khrushchev, that we
should not attempt to stop the cold war or prevent
or delay a hot war.
But it does mean this: We must not get the im
pression that there has been a change in the atti
tudes of the Communists. The waves of alternating
good will, passiveness and tough-mindedness is
simply a tactic-formulated years ago by a little
band of revolutionaries striking at the Czar of
Their principal is plastic-their attempts at
bringing the world under this "dictatorship of the
proletariat" is even more plastic.
A hundred visits to the United States by men
like Khrushchev, a hundred visits to Russia by
men like Nixon will not change the flexible and
insidious ideology which strikes at the heart of
our awn political, social, philosophical, economic
and religious frame of mind.
And it is this frame of mind of ours that they
wish to change and after everything is reduced to
fundamentals they know it cannot be done with
threats alone, it cannot be done with friendly visits
alone and it cannot be done with passiveness alone.
Ah. but take a combination of the three and
other attitudes toward peoples abroad. Tliis is their
hope, their master plan, because they know that the
human mind, if it is to be brought under control
at all, must be changed with subtleness and deft
ness and that their principal must bend with the
winds of ever changing circumstances.
Do not be lulled with visits and talks, smiles
and counter smiles, or toasts or refusals of toasts.
What we observe as change is not change at all.
It is the same repetitiveness of the principals
worked upon alxrnt 100 years ago by the revolu
tionary group much like that of Castro's at this time.
Children and Divorce
What can l>e going wrong here in Holt county?
Why is it that the number of births, one of the
most healthy signs in the social importance and
economy of an area is on the decrease and one of
the poorest signs, divorce, is on the increase?
In the years 1956 and again last year. Holt
county rcorded more divorces (161 than the 10
year average (approximately 12) and during the
same years recorded much less than the average
(380) births.
Now it would be a foolish conclusion, as a rule,
to draw from a 10-year average of births and di
vorces—especially in an area with only 15,000
people, that there is a relationship between the
number of children born and the number of di
vorces in this area.
But we have a sneaking suspicion that if any
one, with enough energy to get the totals for the
United States, would find that such a relationship
would exist.
ll may uc quite uuc hi uua iuuuviu v
ours to say that children hold the home together,
but the local figures back it up 100 percent.
Pride of Atkinson
The 400 people that were in Atkinson to see the
annual gladiolus and flower show received a treat.
They were quite enthused with the displays and
the originality of the winners, even though, many
growers felt that it was not the best year for the
Quite a bit of favorable comment was given the
Alaska theme and the individual species on display
We are not sure of just how far people came to see
the display, several persons from Norfolk stopped
on their way through and at least one woman and
her daughter were there from Illinois.

Entire Nebraska To Be Effected
If Road Building Slowdown Comes
By Melvin Paul
State-house Correspondent
Ihe Nebraska Press Association
LINCOLN — Slowdown of the,
lighway building program could
■each economically into all cor-,
lers of Nebraska.
This was the reason for im-;
nediate concern in the state’s |
■apitol when the House Ways and
deans Committee in Washington
;aid there ought to be a cutback i
n federal spending from the trust
This is the fund from which the
ederal government allocates
noney to the states for construct
ng highways.
State Engineer Boy Cochran
temporarily halted all obligation
of lederal money until the Con
gress hail made up its ndnd on
the rate of sptitding.
An ironic twist to the matter is >
hat the trust fund is short $400
nillion- exactly the amount of
unds allocated by Congress last j
'ear for a "crash" road program, i
Phe crash program was designed
is an anti-recession measure.
Contractors who do Nebraska ■

nent and men. This accounts for

d notice they will let the State

t is the first time since 1923 rail
oads have gone to the courts to
etermine their assessed worth.
Union Pacific attorneys claim
he line is assessed $19.3 million
oo high. Burlington representa
ives say their over assessment is
14.1 million and the Northwestern
aid it is valued $3.3 million too
Road Wages
There is every indication Ne
iraskans will be reading much in
he future about - wage rates for
lighway projects.
This is the bugaboo that plagued
ormer Republican Gov. Victor An
lerson in his last term.
Basically, the Associated Gen
eral Contractors of Nebraska—
who build most of the roads in
the state—claim Gov. Ralph G.
Brooks is setting wage levels
“demand by national labor un
ions" on highway projects.
The governor denied this and
Iso denied that he is violating
jderal regulations as charged by
ie AGC.
Brooks said he has set a policy
lat the minimum wage on regu
ir road projects should be that
aid by a majority of the con
ractors in the immediate area.
That is the policy in effect for j
ork on the Interstate highway.
Previously the highway depart
lent has used as a minimum
age the average paid by 95 per
ent of the contractors on state
ighway projects.
The AGC charged that nations’
ibor unions are “arrogantly us
mg’’ the governor's office as a
business agent for the unions to
establish eastern union wage on
Nebraska highway jobs.
"Why should highway users in
our state pay millions of dollars
in additional taxes, and receive
fewer improved roads because of
increased construction costs, in
order to satisfy the illegal de
mands of a few union leaders?"
the AGC asked.
Brooks said that there has been

#Our Problems'
Two ranchers living within
three miles of each other raise
alxnit the same kind and quality
of cattle but one ships to a mar
ket outside of the county and an
other patronizes the Atkinson and
O'Neill sale barns. The rancher
that "hardly ever” ships to At
kinson and O'Neill told a Frontier
reporter that he did so "because
I'm not about to suffer the shrink
age and I’m convinced it's be
cause of the bad roads rather
than the distance traveled.” The
rancher who does unload his cat
tle in this immediate area does so.
he says, because he disagrees with
the other man. He believes it is
the distance rather than the poor
roads that cause the shrinkage.
But regardless of what causes it,
O'Neill and Atkinson in Holt coun
ty suffer because one man “in his
own mind” is convinced. The coun
ty does not receive his business.

whose imperfections, (bubbles, carbon spots, feathers, clouds)

BEST ROOM-Official dimen
sions reported to A.M.A.* show
that Chevrolet sedans offer more
front seat head room than all but
one of the high-priced cars—more
front seat hip room (by up to 5.9
inches) than the “other two” of
the leading low-priced three.
BEST ENGINE—Chevrolet en

from virtually every automobile
magazine, and, just recently, Chev

standing Achievement award for
“the creation and continuing de
velopment of America’s most effi
