Marion Stone, 15, Writes of His Ex
periences While at Lincoln,
Attending Club Week..
"I became interested in the boys'
and girls' club week by being a
member cf the Nehawka Pig club,
for my first year. We v ere holding
our second pig club meeting at the
home of Sterling and Harry Ingwer
son. Our club leader (Harry Knabe)
who had won a free trip, had re
ceived a letter from the State Boys'
and Girls' club leader, Mr. L. I. Fris
bie, stating that he would like to
have a delegate from all the clubs in
After our leader told us what a
crreat educational trip it was last
year, I became very much interested
and sent in my application the next
day. In a few days I received a
letter from Mr. Frisbie saying he
had expected my application and he
sent me my ribbon and a list of the
articles I would need for the follow
I packed my grip on Friday (May
2G) and on Monday, May 2ft. Sterling

Knabe, our leader, and myself, de
parted for Lincoln on the " :17 train.
We arrived at Peck's Grove at 5:30
and then walked out to the College
ot Agriculture campus, where we
were to tt3y for the week. First we
went to the Agricultural building
registered and became measured
and weighed. I was surprised to
hear that I was 1 V pounds over
weight, according to my height and
The next thins that we did was to
go oer to the Engineering building
and here we were divided into groups.
1 wa in Group No. 2. which of course
was the be:;t group. There were 24
in Group No. 2. Our bunch wa3 al
ways good in behJior, because our
leader had a large, round, heavy pad
die, so that stands to reason. Soon
after we were divided into groups, we
wore given certain cots, and each
croup was assigned a certain place
in the room. Altogether there were
147 boys in that room 15 Eighty girls
had a camp in another building. In
regard to the cots. I think we were
quite fortunate for last year the boys
had to sleep on straw ticks and this
jeer we had real mattresses. After
we had finished making our beds we
fell in line according to our groups
and marched down to the Domestic
Science building for supper, which
was 'served cafeteria style. After
supper we went to Agricultural hall
where we sang club songs and then
Mr. Oberiies of Lincoln gave a very
interesting speech. entitled "The
Magic Touch." hen all the boys
went b.;ck to the Engineering build
ing and tr.ie girls went to the Do
mestic Science building, where they
lu'd their eots. Before we boys re
tired seme boys from the Y. M. C. A.
of Lincoln entertained "us for about
one-half hour, showing us various
stunts and tricks. Every evening we
would have sonr kind of entertain
ment in this line before retiring.
It was rather hard to get to sleep
the first n:'ght brrause every one was
happy and full cf rep. Put after the
first night every one was glad to get
to sleep so there was no noise to
disturb you. The first morning our
leader cane to the door and called
"Everybody Out" at the top of his
voice. Soon everyone was up and
ready to take a shower bath. Talk
about cold water. I think it had ice
in it. It -sure was cold, but it woke
you up quid:. After our shower we
lined up for breakfast. After break
fast we went to class, which was on
the study of birds. As the day was
Decoration day we had a short class
and about 10: CO prepared to go out
to the 'cemetery, by the way of two
special street cars, but as soon as we
got over town it started to rain, and
so we returned to the campus. Took
dinner and then we took up our class
work again about 2 o'clock. A "Ne
braska Farmer" man gave a box sup
ppr and then Governor McKelvie
gave us a talk. We then went to
Agricultural hall and were going to
have a moving picture show, but the
machine broke, so there was a
change in the program. Every even
ing we had a program at the Agricul-;
tural hall of soegs and some very in
teresting lectures. Some evenings
and afternoons we would have pic
ture shows. The picture I thought
was especially good was the one on
Wednesday morning thej' showed
us the beef cattle and horses they;
have at the College of Agriculture.
They showed us the good and bad
points of each.
This was one of the
interesting classes to me. On
c-dnesdav afternoon we went sight
seeing about the city of Lincoln in
Thursday morning we had a class
on Horticulture and Insects. In the
afternoon they took us through the
dairy department and showed us
three different dairy breeds of cows
that they had on the farm. Then
we went through the ice cream fac
tory. Friday morning we were all call
ed at five bells. This was our day
in Omaha so we were all feeling good,
got dressed quick and soon had our
breakfast. We left Lincoln at 7:43
a. m. on a special train of six coaches.
We arrived in South Omaha at 9:10.
First we went through the stock
yards, then through the packing
house, which was sure some sight.
We saw the hogs, cattle and sheep
from the time they entered the pack
ing house until thety were put away
to cure. We ate dinner at the Live
Stock Exchange and then in the af
ternoon we went through the Union
Pacific shops and the Iten Biscuit
company. Then we boys went to the
Y. M. C. A. in Omaha and then to
the Woodmen of the World building,
where we met the girls and went to
the top of this building, about twen
ty stories high. We ate supper in
this building, seventeen stories in
t! e air. We left for Lincoln at 7:20,
bidding farewell to Omaha, for I
I er. joyed the day very much. We ar
rived in Lincoln about 9:00 o'clock
and went out to the campus for the
last evening's entertainment.
Saturday morning all were tear
ing up their beds and packing their
grips. Harry Sterling. Margaret
Shupp and myself left Lincoln at
7:29 and arrived home Nehawka
at 5:14. feeling that I sure had a
week that I enjoyed and will long
remember, and hope that I may go

PANY ASKS NEW

crease for Many Commodities
Want Liquor Prepaid.
Lincoln. June 19. The Amerbah
Railway Express company hs made
request for approval of a long list of
changes in classification of commo
dities, many of which will result In
an increase of rates, so that the new
scale or charges may be put Into ef
fect in Nebraska July 15. The in
terstate commerce commission is be
ing asked to approve similar changes
on interstate shipments.
Among the changes specified,
which involved neither a raise nor a
lowering of rates, a rule requiring
prepayment on all shipments of li
quor. The company claims to have
lost a good deal of revenue qn such
consignments when they vere seized
by prohibition enforcem nt officers.
It says there is no way to check up
on spurious permits, of which the
government authorities admit there
are hundreds in existence.
The company is omirtir.g from its
receipts a footnote formerly primed
on the blanks, binding patrons to cer
tain specified conditions. It explains
that some of these provisions have
been knocked out in the courts.
