A promise that can’t be kept is
being dangled appealingly before
Omahans in an attempt to preju
dice them in favor of public con
trol of the electric company.
This promise, oft-repeated but
never substantiated, is that under
public control the money now being
paid to eastern investors as divid
ends and interest could all be kept
in the city. A glance at the record
will prove the falsity of the argu

take a debt of $45,000,000—the am
ount of revenue bonds that wouid
have to be sold by the People’s
Power Commission to finance the
deal. Omaha investment bankers
have expressed the opinion that
pnly about $1,000,000 worth of these
bonds would be purchased by local
investors. The remainder, or $44,
000,000, would have to be soli to
investors in the ‘east.”
This means that more than 95
percent of the money for payment,
of interest and retirement of these
bonds would go “east” each year.
This is not surprisinb. Right
now, probably 95 cents of every
dollar that the City of Omaha
spends for interest payments on itr,
bonds and for the retirement of
those bonds, ‘‘goes east.” That is
because the bonds which provide'
the money to build our schools,
streets, sewers and maybe even the
city hall, were necessarily sold al
most in their entirety in the “east”

Governor Dwight Griswold (rep.)
announced Monday he would seek
a third term as Nebraska’s chief
If he is re-elected—and most
political observers rate him a top
.heavy favorite—Griswold would
be the second Nebraska governor
to serve three consecutive full
terms. The first was R. L. Coch
ran, a democrat, who ran for the
senate in 1940. In the 1942 elec
tion Griswold carried every county
in the state.
The governor’s announcement
thus removed him from the na
tional picture unless he is drafted.
Last week Senator Hugh Butler,
Omaha, announced the Nebraska
congressional delegation had a
greed to support Griswold as a "fa
vorite son” for president and then
for vice president if it appeared
there was no chance of his getting
the presidential nomination.
Reiterating his statement of last
week that he has no present in
tention of filing in the presidential
preferential primary, Griswold add
ed that "something might happen
to make me change my plans,” re
ferring to the possibility of his be
That, he said, "makes it hard to
make plans at this stage to partic
ipate in any definite campaign.’’
Griswold never has lost in a pri
mary campaign, although he was
defeated for governor three times
in the general election.
With Griswold in the field tor
re-election as governor, the repub
lican ticket is expected to list all
the present elected state officers.
Several already have filed. Attorn
ey General Walter R. Johnson is
the only one who has not signified
intention of seeking another term.
Let’s Get the Record Straight
Does NOT Have
to Be Sold!
Nebraska Power Company does NOT have to be sold!
Nebraska Power Company’s owners, managers, and
employees DON’T WANT it sold.
.The people of Omaha don’t want it sold!
Nebraska Power Company and its employees want to
continue doing business in Omaha in the future as
they have in the past.
So why all this newspaper effort to create another
political Bureau to buy the Nebraska Power Company.
Only if this recently appointed Bureau (Peoples Power
Commission) succeeds in forcing the sale of Nebraska
Power Company will there be any change in owner
ship. Otherwise the Nebraska Power Company will
remain as it is.
Omaha is now receiving good electric service at low
rates! That’s why Omaha citizens want the Nebraska
Power Company left as it is!

You can thank your lucky stars
that women are no longer squeam

Otherwise you might never know
of the 2-way help that CARDUI
may bring when nervous, head
aches and cramp-1 ice pain are due
only to periodic functional causes.
Many women find that, started
three days before the time and
taken as directed, CARDUI aids in
relieving functional periodic dis

the flow of gastric juices, and thus
helps to build up resistance against
the days it’s needed most. Try <t:
