Sheldon Hanufactnrinc,- Company Has
Largest Output of Concrete
Machinery in Country.
Few people of the great common
wealth of iseorasKa realize that in
Nehawka is located the largest con
crete working machinery factory that
exists in the United States. Never
theless such is the case.
Nehawka, former Lome of George
L. Sheldon, ex-governor of Nebraska,
is proud of the Sheldon Manufactur
ing company, which lias in the past
devoted itself largely to the manu
facturing of machinery for working
cement, and placed upon the market
a machine not excelled by any. Their
trade in this machine extends beyond
the confines of the Uni'ecl States, into
remotest Europe, Scuta America and
the islands of the sea. Just now they
are filling an order to Uruguay, South
During the past fw years the
Sheldon company has. been adding
other specialties to their output, not
'.. . i. . i i
tne least among wj:iu nas ueen a
patented saw rigging to both rip and
cross-cut building matt-rial.
Recently the suggestion of making
a combined concrete mixer and saw
rigging was suggested and found fa
vor with the concern. Soon the new
machine had been developed and to
day it is on the market, a concrete
mixer, or. if you choose, a power saw
ing outfit, quickly convertible from
one to the other. The combination
machine promises to be greatly in de
mand among building contractors,
for it will not only mix the cement
tor his foundations, etc.. but will saw
the lumber for use it: erecting his
buildings. The machine is operated
by the IU h. p. gasoline engine here
tofore used on the Sheldon company's
mixer and which furnishes ample
power for either operation.
There has long existed . need for
just such a machine at this and there
is little doubt but sales will be heavy
as its possibilities become known.
Nebraska can feel no small degree
of satisfaction that this little town
within the confines of its border, is
the home of such a titanic institution
5 the Sheldon company, which al
though located in the home town of
former Governor George L. Sheldon,
was not named for him. but for
George C. Sheldon, a relative of the
Nehawka. too. can well feel a de
gree of satisfaction and pride over
having this institution in its corpo
rate limits. From this factory Las
been shipped concrete mixers to all
parts of the earth, and not in isolated
instances, but by car loads, for their
business is one of much moment.

TEMPESTUOUS HOUR IN SENATE
FOREIGN RELATIONS COM
Washington, Feb. 23. An admin
istration move for a compromise on
reservations to the four-power Pa
cific treaty failed of immediate suc-
Jcess today ,after it had stirred up a
spintea aenaie in tne senate ioreign
relations committee. Coming directly
from a conference with President
Harding, Chairman Lodge of the com
mittee laid before his colleagues a
revised resolution declaring in spe
cific terms that the treaty does not
contemplate an "alliance" and draft
ed to take the place of the blanket
reservation which a majority of the
committee members had previously
indicated they would support.
Those who had sponsored the orig
inal blanket qualification immediate
ly opened fire on the new reservation
and the hour of debate which fol
lowed was described by senators pres
ent as the stormiest passage witness
ed since the days of the Versailles
treaty fight. Senator Borah of Idaho
and Senator Johnson of California,
among the republicans, and Senator
Pomerene, of Ohio, on the democrat
ic side, were said to have led the op
position to the administration pro
posal, while all the other reservation
ists reserved final judgment. In his
advocacy of the" modified draft. Sen
ator Lodge was neconded by Senators
Kellogg of Minnesota and New of In
diana, both republicans.
Still Hope for Compromise
Without taking action, the com
mittees adjourned until tomorrow,
and various groups began conferences
in the hope that some more satisfac
tory ground for compromise might be
found to prevent a long reservation
debate during committee considera
tion of the treaty.
The precise attitude of the presi
dent regarding reservations was not
explained to the committee by Sena
tor Lodge, but members gained the
impression that Mr. Harding was not
disposed to accede to the blanket pro
posal introduced several days ago by
Senator Brandegee, republican, of
Connecticbt, and now awaiting ac
tion. 1 i
It was indicated clearly that the
white house would like to see all
reservations voted down, but failing
in that, they would continue to seek
whatever softening appeared possible
in the reservation proposals.
The text of the new resolution was
held in confidence and members of
the committee said they had promised
not to make it public. It provides
briefly, that the'treaty is not under
stood by the United States as forming
an "alliance" or as committing this
government to use of force, or as pro
viding for the exercise of any power
by this government except thru the
usual processes laid down in the
American constitution. Its language
follows almost exactly the words of
the president in laying the treaty be
fore the senate.
Attacked in the Senate
While the committee elements were
reforming their lines for a renewal
of the argument at tomorrow's meet
ing, the four-power treaty was at
tacked in the senate by Senator Wat
son, democrat, Georgia, who coupled
a belated birthday tribute to George
Washington with a prediction that
the proposed four-power arrangement
would be an expensive departure
from the traditions of the fathers.
Germany and Russia, he prophtsio'l.
would be drawn together eventually
in antagonism to the "quadruple al
liance" with the result that a new
balance of power arrangement would
be established, involving the United
Meantime, debate on the Yap
treaty between the United States and
Japan, which was to have been con
tinued today, was shut off by other
senate discussions. Senator Lodge
called up the treaty soon after the
day's session began and for more than
four hours it remained technically
before the senate w-ithout a sinple
reference being made to It on' the
floor. It will be brought up again
