NATION SEEK RAISE
With Increasing Amount of Work
ad High Cost of Living a
Salary Increase Urged
From Friday's Pally.
The second class postmasters of
the state gathered at Lincoln yester
day for the purpose of organizing to
present to the special congressional
committee the need of the postmas
ters for an increase in salary that
would enable them to keep within
si?;ht' of the increasinc; cost of living
and especially as their duties are
being enlarged constantly while the
salary remains the same.
Postmaster D. C. Morgan of this
city was at the meeting and was
drafted together with Postmaster
Ludi of Wahoo and Postmaster Gros
vernor, of Aurora, to prepare a brief
totting forth the claims of the post
masters and their grounds for seek
ing an increase in salary. The joint
commission, of congress consists of
Senator John If. Bankhead, of Ala
bama; Senator McKeller. of Tennes
see; Senator Gay, of Louisiana; Sen
ator Sterling of South Dakota; Sen
ator Moses, of New Hampshire; Con
gressman J. A. Moon, of Tennessee;
Congressman Hell, of Georgia; A. P..
House. Kentucky; II. Stevenson, "of
Minnesota and Martin II. Madden, of
Illinois. This commission will meet
at Kansas City in the near future.
at which time the brief of the Ne
braska postmasters will be presented
to the commission for action.
Washington, Oct. 12. While
President Wilson is believed by his
physicians to be; on the road to re
covery, the process will be slow and
tedious. The president, it was re
iterated today at the white house,
must resign himself to strict ob
servance of the physicians orders to
put aside all thought of his office
while convalescing and remain in
bed until danger of a relapse has
passed. Rear Admiral Grayson, the
president's personal physician and
the physicians he called in more
than a week ago continue to con
fine themselves to terse bulletins
twice a day as far as the public is
concerned. That they are satisfied
with the progress their patient is
making is apparent from the spirit
of optimism that pervades the
white house and the resentment
with which various rumors as to
the president's "real" condition are
met by white bouse officials.

A Nehawka man has made an

Nehawka prominently in the mind

Pollard has had a wonderful sale of
Hampshires this spring and summer,
and the touchdown consists of hav
ing shipped his Hampshires to buy
ers in twenty-seven states since the
first of January. 1919. But the sad
part of it all is the fact that the
