11 EMU BOOMERS ATTRACT
In An Interview, President S. R. McKelvie Tells of the Real Con
ditions in Nebraska "Nebraska Would Be Less Affected
By Short Crop Than Any State in the Union," He Says
E. H. VVescott lias sent back a
clipping from a Detroit paper,
which gives an account of the Ne
braska Publicity League when it
visited Detroit. Mr. Wescott is
secretary of the Plattsmouth
Commercial club and was ap
pointed by the local club to rep
resent Plattsmouth on the trip.
The article in full follows:
Seventy-five members of the
Nebraska Publicity league landed
in Detroit yesterday afternoon en
route to the national convention
of advertising men in Boston. The
Nebraska delegation was armed
with bells, which made a loud
noise if not a tuneful noise, and
they carried yellow and green !
parasols which were almost as
audible as the bells. j
The league which they rep-
resent is composed of the' ad-
vertising clubs of Lincoln and!
Omaha. The various commercial
organizations about the state are
also connected. The object is to
boom Nebraska, and just at pres
ent the delegates are busy dis
tributing literature and argu
ments framed to cancel the effect
of misinformation which they as
sert has been sent out concerning
the soil and the crops of the slate.
S. R. McKelvie, president of the
league, is one of the most en
thusiastic boosters in the party.
In regard to the unfavorable re
ports which have been circulated
concerning Nebraska, he said:
"I wish to state that the con
dition of Nebraska's crops is as
favorable as in any state in the
country and Nebraska is prosper
ous. Don't believe for one min-

Denver, Scenic Colorado and THE

ute that any shortage of crops will
materially affect a people who
produce from their farms and
lactones products worth over
$050,000,000 in one year. One,
two or three years of short crops
would not bring want to more
than a very few in Nebraska. In
fact, fewer people would be
seriously affected by a short crop
in Nebraska than in almost any
other state in the country because
Nebraska has fewer large cities
It is always in the large cities
that the depression is first felt.
"The Nebraska farmer is not in
a trust and he need never be. The
answer to it all is this: The world
must be fed. The agricultural
territory of profitable production
in the world is limited and yet
population increases rapidly. la
many sections the farmer has
been improvident and unwise in
Ihe management of his land, with
the result that it is not produc
ing as much as in times past.
This means that prices must Con
tinue to rise and the farmer need
not be in a trust in order to reap
this increase in the prices which
he shall receive. I do believe,
however, that the day is not far
distant when farmers shall or
ganize along co-operative lines to
protect themselves against certain
intermediaries who are taking an
extreme loll as middlemen. The
range of prices between the pro
ducer and the consumer is, in
many cases, too great. This must

It Has Been a Season of Very
Unusual Conditions the
Entire Country Over.
While Plattsmouth people are
enjoying the cool days and nights
at the time of year when they
have been accustomed to swelter,
few of them realize, perhaps, that
the summer of Ivil has been a
remarkable one, considering the
conditions that have prevailed the
entire country over.
A drouth of long standing is not
the only thing to chalk up against
the summer of 1911, for it has
been a season of excessive heat at
a period when such heat was
hardly to be expected, and it has
been cool and delightful during
the period when real hot weather
is customary and expected. Nor
have the peculiar conditions been
confined to Nebraska, or to the
middle west, but to the entire na
tion east of the Rocky mountains.
Nebraska's people experienced a
hot and dry spring, and a June
that was a record-breaker for
high temperature. The spring
rains were far below the average,
both in number and in the amount
of rainfall. But everywhere else
in the country, it appears, the
same conditions prevailed. In the
month of June the dispatches day
after day told of the hundreds of
heat prostrations in the cities of
the east and of the middle west.
In the south previous records for
high heat the records of July
and August were exceeded. The
"hottest. June since the weather
bureau was started," was a
familiar statement throughout the
south. July, on the other hand,
has been the coolest ever known
The June heat wave did not
heed national boundaries, for
Montreal, Canada, reported a tem
perature of over 100 for three
days in succession. "The hottest
summer in sixty years," was the
way the Montreal papers put it.

quite so severe.

precedented there, and that hun
