Supt. Bradford visits Ilijrh Schools
Supt. II. 'E.' Bradford of tho Uni
versity of Nebraska pays n visit to
Webster County's 'High Schools. . His
talk was "Doe Training Pay 7"
He said his first object was togot
acquainted' and then ho pictured the
university with it's vaivous colleges
giving the High School students an
idea what they had to offer in higho.
education and preparing themselves
for n particular line of w rk. He
then took up his subject and used il
lustrations to gain tho point of h'.
One was that in Nebraska the aver
age cow gr vc only 015 qitaits of milk
daily. He suit! at the University "urm
ti cow named LnVe na had a milk re
cord of !10 qua. Is per day a year and
that there was in Nebraska .150,000
milk cows and if wo could increase
by selection of belter cows this aver
age cows milk one-fourth, it would
amount t- $0,000,000 every year.
With very little more effort it could
be increased one half.
Mr. Bradford said that not only
boys needed to train themselves, but
girls also. He said that statistics of
the Uidtcd States show that women
spend 85 Cf of the income of tho men
The iccson for this was that women
were better qualified to buy the food
and clothing for tho family and the
furnishings for tho homo. He closed
by telling the old story of the Three
Stone Cutters, who were cutting stone
in a farlory and a visitor happened
in and after watching them chisel the
stone he inquired of tho first wlu.t
lie was doing? He replied, ho wrs
working for Union wages; the second
sad, he was cutting stone accoiding
to the pattern before him and the
third said lie was building a cathedral.
Mr. Bradford said High School stu
dents could classify thcmselvc in one
of the above classes.
Students in the first class weie
waiting for the ! o'clock bell when
they got to play and that there stu
dents would ahvays Ik; working for
wages. The second class were those
trying to follow a pattern and never
thinking ol advancing. wnuc me
th'rd class were fitting blocks into

Last Friday was n big day in the
history of Charity lodge A. F. & A. M.
tho Masons enjoying a visit from both
Grand Master Chappel of Mindcn and
Grand Ctistodian French of Kearney.
A special communication was held
in the afternoon at which Howard
Kaley received the degree of n Master
Mason, Ids father, Past Master, A.
U. Kuley taking tho Master's part
in the ceremonies. In tho evening the
Grand Master was formally received
by the lodge, and excellent addresses
which greatly pleased the craft, wore
given by the Grand Master and the
Grand Custodian. One special and
unusual feature of the meeting was
the presentation to the lodge by the
Grand Master of & certificate of pro
ficiency, the officers on Thursday
evening and Friday having passed an
examination in tho esoteric work be
fore the Grand Custodian. Thifl h fl
distinction possessed by few of the
lodges of Nebraska at this time. Vis
itors were present at tho meeting
from Cowles, Rivcrlon, Guido Hock
and Hastings. After lodge was clos
ed refreshments wore served.
AUTO LICENSE FEES
, It would seem that the farmer
should be the last man to favor n re
duction in automobile license fees, as
such a reduction would only increase
the percent of taxes paid by the farm
, At tho present time more than
tiib of the taxahlc property of the
state is farmer-owned. Of any fund
raised by a general property tax, the
farmers may be said to pay 64 Vc.
The road maintenance tuntt is not
so raised. Users of the road, that is,
automobile owners, create this fund
by the annual payment of auto license
fees. The fees now provided for
were established for the purpose of
creating a fund deemed sufiiclent anti
necessary, to adequately maintain
state and county roads. All the mon
ey collected from this source, after
r deduction of IViVc for administra
tion costs are used on roads outside
of-corporatc limits. Onlv -10 of the
autos of the state are farmer-owned.
Hence, 60 of the maintenance fund
is paid by dtv and village taxpayers
and -07c by farmers. .
Iteduccd prices and more efficient
management may reduce the cost of
maintenance slightly, but h'ghcr
standards of excellence and extended
road systems, county as well as state
will doubtless make up the differ
ence, so it is not safe to decrease
iiin nmnnnt nf the maintenance fund
If the auto license fee is reduced
r.iu' i,nlf tlin maintenance fund must
then be raised otherwise, probably by
a general levy against property.
Such a scheme would shift the bur
den of maintenance upon farmers
who own only 40 of the cars of the
town and city taxpayers who own
60 of the cars would pay only 3CVr,
of the maintenance fund raised by tax
