JOHN S. VALLERY,
The Nebraska fcrm bureau feder
ation, which inaugurated an active
membership campaign on October 25 1
now has a total membership of ap- j
proximately 15.000 in the seventeen !
countries that have been canvassed, I
according to state ' headquarters.
A? out sixty men have been canvas-
r inr momlifivcli ino HurilC that Tlf- 1
!od working in three groups and
revering three counties each week.
Active campaigning was called off
this week, to be 'resumed cn Janu
ary 10. 4r.
Seventeen counties have conduct
ed the initial canvass producing a
total membership of 14.199, includ
ing Frontier county which has not
yet made a complete report. In the
sixteen counties completely report
ed an average membership of S52
id- county has been obtained in
the initial drives and this is being
added to daily by follow up work
ers who call upon those whom it
was impossible to see on the first
Also in many counties bad roads
hampered the initial membership
drive. This is particularly true of
Lancaster, Madison and fcaune coun
ties. That is another Idling that
will mean a constantly increasing
membership in these counties, so
Ihut it is a safe prediction, accord
ing to state headquarters to say
i hat the Nebraska membership is
mlly going to average 1,000 farm
bureau members per county.
Of the sixteen counties already
solicited, Buffalo county leads with
r membership of 1,337, followed by
Hamilton with 1.1S9. Dawson with
1.129 an dSeward with 1.007. Itich
rrdson county with 90S failed by
two memberships to reach the 1.000
mark. The results of the initial
drives in other counties were Polk
,S23. Saline 825. Clay 204. Lancas
ter 765. Fillmore 740. Thuivton
':5".. llnll 010, Madison 545. Dakota
495, Cass 835 and Red Willow 710.
'rentier county which is not com
plete now has 725.
The counties already canvassed
.re representative of nearly all sec
ti ;TS of the state, and they give a
v ry fair estimate of what the final
membership strength of 'he Nebras
ka, farm bureau federation should
1 6. Ourf the ninety-four counties
in Nebraska approximately twenty
: re sparsely populated and devoted,
tn ::r:;zing. and will probably not be
'-.'roughly canvassed during the
I re en t year.
This leaves seventy-four counties
which on ihn basis of those already
canvassed should produce a total
mbership for th-state of between
f,5.Q0 and 70.000. It is to be pre
sumed that as ihc farm bureau be
ecmos better known throughout the
state that organization work will al
so be easier than it has been in the
counties canvassed since organiza"
t'on work commenced. October 25.
r:i this basis Nebraska's member-
hi' on the basis of percentage of
its farming population is bound te,
compare favorably with the thirty-
seven states which have already
completed the canvasses.
The s-diedula of counties' an
nounced last week by the Nebraska
farm bureau federation in which
membership campaigns would be
held early in the coming year has
been considerably changed. The or
iginal schedule included many west
ern Nebraska counties. The new
schedule switches the early cam
paigns to the eastern portion of the
state where it is presumed at that
time cf year weather conditions will
be more favorable than in the west.

HELD FOR DEATH
Coroner's Jury Finds Him Negligent ,
in Administration of Pow- j
Cheyenne, Wyo., Dec. 21. A ver
dict that Dr. W. K. Mylar, formerly
of Kimball. Neb., was "criminally re
sponsible'' for the death of August
U. Johnson, 27, railroad fireman, un
til recently of Burlington, la., who
died in Mylar's efnee Sunday after
noon about twenty minutes after the
physician had administered an injec
tion of arsphenamine, also known as
salvarsan, was returned this after
noon by a. conorer's jury.
The jury made its finding of crim
inal responsibility "by reason of the
negligent and careless manner in
which said drug was prepared for ad
ministration." The jury heard evidence by two
physicians who performed an autopsy
on Johnson's body, which included
(he statement that Johnson possibly
was not a sufferer from the virulent
blood disease foT which "salvarsan is
a specific." " The- physicians also "tes
tified regarding two forms of salvar
son. one of the older form known as
"G06" and the other an improvement
on the older form which is known
as neosalvarsan or "914".
The testimony was to the efTect
that is salvarsan were administered
as neosalvarsan, the result might be
Dr. Mylar previously had testified
that he used for Johnson salvarsan
of a different manufacturer from
that he hai been accustomed to us
ing, and that he had not noticed
whether there were any directions
regarding the method of administra
tion on the container. Prosecuting
Attorney C. E. Lane, after a confer
ence .witb-.Coroner Clyde Early and
the coroner's jury, announced that
he would not. proceed to any action
in the case until he had received a
report of an autopsy on Johnson's
body performed by physicians other
than the two who had acted for the
