Were I a citizen of Omaha the blush of shame
would flush my face tocause of the shabby recep
tion for Mr. Truman As a citizen of Nebraska one
can hut feel humiliated.
I could not support him for
continuing in the White House,
Iwit he is now our president and
was entitled to at least the con
sideration Omaha accords a
prize fighter or notable baseball
Mr. Truman undoubtedly
entertains a forlorn tope, if in
ilecd he harbors a lingering
tope Down in the cotton states
there might lx* something lack
ing in the southern hospitality,
hut the coolness of Nebraska Democrats upon the
occasion of a visit from the Democratic president
of the United States can 1m- explained only that they
too are definitely opposed to the administration as
it is in Washington.

Meeting a former acquaintance recently, I ask
ed if her husband was still in railroad service. ‘ Yes.
and he has two years to go yet to get his retire
ment pension.” The same day I met another ac
quaintance and she said they were interested in
getting into the country hut her husband had three
years yet on the job and then retirement on pension.
These are not isolated incidents but are en
countered frequently. This generation of employees
s«*»‘m to have tin- one ambition to get that pension.
For the most part such payments come from a
fund created by the workers and it brings the grati
fying assurance that they will not be the benefici
aries of public charity in later years. But what
a tout the smaLI business people?
They must do as our fathers and grandfathers
did by providing for non-productive years or wind
up on the poor farm.
In the community where my early childhood
was merging into youth, there was a poor farm
but no destitute venerable citizens, so the place was
used to care for a few local characters whose ment
al balance had upsei.

The annual worry over weather conditions has
ln-en on again . . much unnecessary concern over
something we are not managing When in 1X94 the
great plains region was swept by hot winds day
(tier day there seemed to lx- something to worry
about That period was survived and seasons of
unfavorable weather conditions since then have been
local in effect with little resemblance to that earlier
famine season There have tx-en no hot winds this
far this season and while rainfall has not been what
is desired doubtless at roundup time there will be
t fine crop of husky young beeves, and granaries
and cellars pretty well stocked. My daughter writes
from Orlando, Fla. that they have had no rain in
ihree months less than two weeks since the Lin
coln community had an all-night rainfall.

Communities in which railroads were built lie
fore the introduction of trucks now making court
fights to retain train service on these branch lines
should make a showing that the community is able
and willing to furnish sufficient business to warrant
the operation of trains. Railroads are not sending
their rolling stock out empty if they can help it.

Among the 1,100 odd graduates of the state uni

appear. Dona E. Gallagher, O’Nei.11, received the
BA degree; William H. Rees, Amelia, finished in
business administration; Charles P. Walker, Page,
and Janice J. Wilson. Stuart, were among those
graduating from the teachers’ college. Maybe others
that I have not intentionally overlooked.

The Neligh News
Small boys aren't the only people who envy Big
League baseball players.
Millions of us of all ages must wonder now and
then why fate has chained us to a desk, glued us
to a machine, imprisoned us in a salesman’s car,
otherwise consigned us to an unglamorous career.
Unglamorous that is. compared to the carefree,
exciting lives these handsome, frisky young heroes
enjoy as they pull down fabulous money for playing
a game they no doubt would play for free if no one
had thought of paying them to play it.
Consider the life of a baseball star.
Every move followed by millions of admirers
some of them girls. Fan clubs. Autograph seekers—
some of them girls. Travel. Fine hotels. As much
good food as you can eat — on an expense account
yet. Plenty of sunshine and fresh air. And you can't
beat the hours
But hold it.
Did you get your joh over the active and talent
ed competition of a half dozen other guys who were
just as determined as you to land it?
When you boot one on the job — and don’t we
all? — do 40,000 dedicated maniacs boo you?
Do half a dozen eager beavers sit behind you,
waiting and praying for you to slow down a bit so
they can take over your work?
Does the whole country know when you are re
moved from the starting lineup?
Is the tension in your job so great you are too
nervous to eat before you go to work and too de
pressed to sleep after you get home?
Do you know what most of the unsung baseball
players make? Not the big stars, but the mine-run
Do you want to be washed up in your profession
Do you want to be away from the family "half
Maybe all of us should check our jobs point by
point against those that look so posh and cushy.
Maybe we’d be more content with what we have.
And of course there’s always a way for any of
us to be happier in what we’re doing. We can merely
do it better.
