Parents and Teachers Meeting
There was a meeting of the par
ents' and teachers' association last
Monday evening at the auditorium,
at which a number of problems af
fecting the teachers, the students
and the parents were discussed with
the idea in mind of getting the best
service from the public schools, which
the co-operation of the various par
ties affected would permit. These
meetings are conducive to the best
success of the public school system.
Eetnnis from Trip in East
A. C. Anderson, secretary of the
CbdHrvn Mannf'irtnrin? pftmnatlV. I
who has been in the east for the
past six weeks and during his trip
visited many points in Pennsylvania,
Massachusetts and New York, re
turned heme last Saturday evenin?
and reports a very successful trip
tor the company and has to say that
the east is ahead of the west just at
this time in the matter of business,
and that building as well as busi
ness in commercial lines is very ac
tive. He found many people much
in favor with the Sheldon mixers and
while away established a number of
branches where the output of the
Nehawka factory will be handled.
Overcame the Difficulties
Last Saturday while the road
grader and maintainer which works
from Union, was working along "O"
street, a crew of graders with teams
were also working along a place
where the grade was narrow, and
they were trying to widen it and
by the instructions of Commissioner
Harris, the dirt was piled in the
road, to be shoved off when the road
maintainer returned that way.
However, the tractor went wrong,
and the ones in charge worked un
til dark and had not gotten the ma
chine working. Mr. Harris return
ing saw the condition of the road,
and knowing of the heavy traffic
along the highway hastened to his
home to get lanterns for warning of
the condition of the road. When he
returned, which was but a few mo
ments later, he found a car had
climbed the mountain of dirt and
gotten over, but had come within a
very narrow margin of going down
a 20 foot embankment. The force
was kept at work on the tractor
and it gotten in working condition,
and work was continued until 11
o'clock in the night before the road
was in condition to leave. Mr. Har
ris found that "The best laid plans
of mice and men oft gang a glee."
Has a Most Pleasant Time
Friday of last week at the Metho
dist church occurred the reception of
the minister and the welcoming and
making at home of the members of
the teaching force of the Nehawka
schools, at which a large number of
the people of the city were in at
tendance. Mrs. E. M. Pollard, in a
most able address welcomed both the
pastor and his good wife and the
teachers, bringing to the minds of
the people of the community the
great influence which the church
and schools have upon the develop
ment of everyone and directing the
better characteristics of all the citi
zens for the common good. The ad
dress was one well worthy of the
lady-who made it, and was received
In the spirit In which it was de
livered and was the watchword for
the entire program of the evening.
The program which followed was one
intersperced with readings and mu
sic and was made more enjoyable
by the delicious ice cream and cake
which the ladies served.
Appropriated the Coils
A few days since, while a couple
of the sons of Henry P. Sturm were
returning from near Union, they had
the misfortune to break the axle In
their universal car and while going
for assistance to get the machine
repaired, some miscreant appropri
ated the coils from their car as it
sat in the highway. This was dur
ing the day time and with every one
passing along the road. Some one
had wanted coils pretty badly, to
take the risk of being discovered at
their theft. However, they had bet
ter be very careful or they are liable
to get caught at their work and
should the owner of the car get his
hands on them, they probably would
not need coils for some time, as they
would be in the toils.
Change in Nehawka Bank
Last week Mr. D. C. West purchas
ed the stock of F. A. Boedeker in the
Nehawka Bank, and will operate the
bank himself in the future. Frank
Boedeker, who has been connected
with the institution for the past six
teen years, will remain during this
week and assist in the work, while
Mr. West has something outside to
look after. Then he will be at lib
erty to look after whatever he may
have. However, he will remain in
Nehawka until the closing of the
school year next spring, when with
the family they will spend some
time in the west.
The Nehawka Bank, which is one
of the soundest institutions In the
state, is doing an excellent business
and has during the troublous times
pursued a conservative course along
the highway to success, while some
chose to follow the path to ultimate
failure. As a result its finances are
now in the best of condition, as will
be seen by. noting the official state-j
ment issued in response to the Sep
tember 30th call of the State Bureau
of Banking and which will be found '
elsewhere on this page. j
