Too Many County Supervisors are
Mixing Up in It, Declares
Kearney Road Head.
"Politics should be left out of th
good roads movements," said O. G. ;
Smith, of Kearney, president of the
Nebraska Good Roads association, in
a speech before the convention of
the O. L. I), highway delegates in
Lincoln Wednesday evening. 1
"Too. many county supervisors and'
county commissioners are dabbling in'
political combinations and are cost-!
ing the taxpayers millions of dollars,
a year over the United States." Mr.
Smith declared. He spoke on the'
work of keeping up the roads. He'
told of President Harding's policy ofi
maintenance and said that this word;
should be the keynote of all good j
roads movements.
Thiriy-five delegates attended the.
annual banquet held i.t the Lincoln;
hotel Wednesday night. A larger J
number would have been present but j
for the floods and hard rains in Col-j
orado and western Nebraska, which j
halted them on their way to the
convention. Many letters and tele
grams were received by President C.
H. Roper during the afternoon from
members on their way to the con
vention telling him that they were

Secretary Trev Gillespie of the Lin
coln automobile club was toastmast
er at tiie banquet. The first speaker
on the list was Lute Morse who
told a number of stories, many of
them referring to roads in the south
ern states. A remarkable coincidence
of the occasion was the verification
of Mr. Morse's stories by ex-Mayor
Mills of McCook. who claimed that
he had visited Alabama of late and
had found the roads in no favorable
;-ondit ion.
Bert George, formerly president of
the O. L. D.. and of the Lincoln
automobile club, followed with a
his'ory of the marking of the O. L.
I), and with the history also of the
means by which Nebraska acquired
i highway commissioner.
Speaking of George Johnson, the
present highway commissioner. Mr.
George said that he "is one of the
best In the United States." to which
the delegates agreed unanimously.
O. G. Smith, of Kearney, president of
Hie Nebraska Good Roads association
then spoke on the work of keeping
up the roads.
George Johnson, state highway
commissioner, spoke on the legisla
tive side of the good roads move
ment. He told of the meeting in
Washington a short time ago at
which President Harding told high
way commissioners in session there,
that he wouifl veto any bill for road
building unless it carried with it a
policy for adequate maintainence.
The present bill before congress for
road appropriations, said Mr. John
sen, will conform with the Nebraska
laws almost identically and will
necessitate but little readjustment in
the state laws.
Following the speaking the entire
delegation attended a theatre party.
Has Much to Do with Sending July
Wheat Up 7 Cents at Chicago
Crop Report Assists.
Chicago. June Possibility of
widespread labor tie-ups on the rail
roads July 1 had a good deal "To do
with a rapid advance today in the
price of wheat.
The market in some cases ran up
more than 7 cents a bushel for July
delivery, which commanded as high
as $1.:!!)U against $1.32 at yester
day's finish.
A big falling off in production of
wheat this season as shown by the
government crop report had made
he trade anxious, and then talk of
general strike possibilities sent the
market soaring.
Uefore the rise in values, due to
buying chiefly by speculators, was
ended. July delivery touched $1.40
an overnight jump of S cents per
bushel. The level thus attained was
within 1 cent of the topmost point
this season.
Profit taking by holders led to a

Lack of Business and Curtailment of
Refinery Operations, Says a
Bulletin from There
A flood of unemployed streaming
into Casper. Wyoming, seeking work
in the oil fields, together with a
large number of inquiries concern
ing employment has caused that
labor filled district much distress.
The chamber of commerce at Cas
per is sending out a letter. to all in
quiries for work and to those whom
thev find are intending to move to!
Casper soon in search of employ
ment. It says
"Work is not plentiful in Casper
at this time, due to the general de
pression, and also to the fact that
the refineries have curtailed opera
tions to some extent, making it'
necessary to absorb some refinery
employes into other lines. A great;
number cf men have come in here
during the last two or three months
as a result of the publicity which
Casper h.s received as an indus
trial center. The cost of living is
high here owing to our congested
housing situation, high rents and the
abnormal growth, due to the activi
ties of the oil companies."
