Statements made, directly or by innuendo,
(published in the World-Herald, May 3) that
the Nebraska Power Company instigated
the strike among the employees of the Con
sumers Public Power District and the state
hydro projects are absolutely false. We had
nothing to do with it, in any way, directly or
I publicly challenge any official of Consum
ers or any official of the state hydro projects
to present one iota of proof to show that
Nebraska Power Company has had anything
to do with instigating or stimulating this strike
in any way whatsoever.
Officials of the Nebraska Power Company
were not aware that the strike had been pend
ing. Because of the reference made to Bozell
& Jacobs, our advertising agency, in an inter
view in Wednesday afternoon's World
Herald, inquiry was made of the principals
of this advertising agency. They also deny
unqualifiedly that they had any knowledge
of this strike or anything to do with it.

Here’s A Glamour Pie To Serve
[ As A Compliment On Mother’s Day
THE most welcome gift you could
give Mother on her special holi
day this year is a helping hand at
home. It’s quite probable that she’s
a very busy lady, with bandage
making at Red Cross workroom and
a stint of digging or weeding in the
Victory garden sandwiched in be
tween marketing and meal plan
ning. So she’s sure to be pleased
with any help in housekeeping re
It’s a complimentary gesture to
cap a happy dinner menu with a
gala dessert specially in her honor.
A pie with a message spelled out
in pastry letters is sure to give de
light, and if you co-star it with a
novel Mocha Froth made of decaf
feinated coffee, everybody can re
lax taut nerves over dessert and
toast the guest of honor in extra
cups without later worry over
sleeping problems. The letters for
your greeting are easy to produce
if you make patterns of stiff paper
about an inch and a half high and
cut the pastry with a sharp knife.
Brown them lightly on a cooky
sheet or cake pan. Don’t make
them too thin, and be careful not
to crack them when you’re putting
them in place.
You can use a prepared chocolate
or butterscotch pudding for your
pie or yon can make this creamy
Velvet Chocolate Cream filling and
fee sure of glamorous results.
Mother’s Day Mocha Froth,
1 cup evaporated milk
14 teaspoon vanilla
4 cups freshly made, hot decaffein
Chill evaporated milk thoroughly.
Then whip rapidly until stiff. Add
vanilla. Place in serving cups, fill
ing half full. Sprinkle with cinna
mon. Fill cups with decaffeinated
coffee. Makes 8 servings.
Velvet Chocolate Cream Pie
2 to 3 squares unsweetened
14 cup sugar
14 cup water
6 tablespoons flour
14 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk

Combine chocolate. V* cup sugar,
and water in saucepan. Cook 5

salt in top of double boiler. Add
milk gradually, stirring well; then
add chocolate syrup. Place over
boiling water and cook until thick

occasionally. Pour small amount of
mixture over egg, stirring vigor

appear for Gerald Hill.
This will be the first case of its
kind on the question of actual trial on
the merits and the decision will no
doubt become a precedent for other
similar actions in other parts of the
country. The Boilermakers Union is
one of the group of AF of L unions
which discriminates against Negroes
by relegating all of them to auxil
iary unions which auxiliaries have no
power to bargain for the protection
of their members, no grievance com
mittees of their own. Members of
the auxiliaries have no opportunity to
advance in their work without the
permission of the local white lodge.
The only equality between the two
lodges is that they both pay the same
amount of dues.

THE BASIC FREEDOMS by Ruth Taylor
Every time things go our way in the war—there
are outcries against the cost of w7ar in taxes, in re
strictions, in the demands made upon us. We as a
nation and as individuals take defeat w7ith better
grace than we take success. We have to see WHY
j before wre will give up any of our special privileges.
When things are going well, w7e forget that the
j only things we can’t afford to give up are the basic
Pope Pius XII phrased it thus: “Render unto
! Caesar the things which are Caesar’s—and unto God
the things which are God’s.’ One w7ould like to add
Give unto man the things which are man’s, give man
his freedom and personality, his rights and relig
Those are the basic ideals to which we as individ
uals, which wre as a nation, must put first. Until
they are assured to all peoples, they are not assured
In order to keep these basic ideals w7e must give
up much of our false notions that our comforts are
our essentials. Without the basic freedoms there
is nothing of any real importance. Ask those who
have suffered. They know what is really import
1 ' The basic things that are man’s are his freedom
to speak, to think as an individual; his personality
his ability to make the best of himself; his rights—
as a citizen and as a man; his religion—without
which nothing else is important.
When we howl about taxes, when we complain a
bout gas restrictions, when w7e feel that we should
travel for pleasure, when wre object to cramped liv
ing conditons—we are forgetting what would be our
lot wrere these basic freedoms to be tom from us.
The other night I walked down Sixth Avenue w ith
an Englishman. He said: “Ho you mind if I stop
to look in the windows—it is so wonderful to see so
many things for sale.” Remember that the next
tune you CAN’T make out on your ration points.
And—when you hear the church bells ring, don’t
turn over to go back to sleep. Remember the coun
tries where man cannot worship freely.
Stop complaining—the war isn’t won yet and if ,
w-e want to be sure our rights remain our rights, w-e
have to keep on to the bitter end. There is no turn
ing back in the war. What do we want—a few7
months of comfort, then slavery ? That is the real
issue now as when Bataan fell.
by HOWARD BUFFETT
Congressman. 2nd Nebraska District
A few days ago a Virginian said
to me, "People in the East talk the
way they would like to feel, but
don't” Easterners like to talk about
international friendship and brother
hood. \ et, they themselves view the
Middle West with lifted eyebrows
and a patronizing manner. Nowhere
in America is there more snobbish
ishness, class distinction, and high-hat
behavior than along the Atlantic
Shortly after my arrival in Wash
ington, I attended a function where
a distinguished Southerner made a
speech, in which he proudly referred
to the interventionist attitude of his
state and the South generally. He
indicated that internationalism and
interventionism were the marks of
intelligence and good taste.
Visiting with this same man, after
the meeting, he told me that the Mid
dle West was backward and isloat
ionist, failing to understand the glob
al problems. His people were wide
awake, and why were we of the hin
terland so stupid?
Later in the same conversation, he
said to me, “You Northerners should
keep your hands off our Negroes.
We know how to handle the negroes.
You fellows mind your own business
and we 11 take care of the negro prob

With an unnatural self-restraint I
kept my mouth shut. The Southern
er had convicted himself. We
should solve the problems of Europe,
but the North must not butt in the
South. Oh, No! The South would
solve its race problem in its own way
and any interest shown from the
North would be unwholesome inter
The 13 million colored people of A
merica are part of America. Next to
our own children, they arc our pri
mary responsibility, because we
brought them here. We have not
solved this problem in inter-relations.
I am not even sure that we are mak
ing a really intelligent effort to solve
it. Until we do so, we have a lot of
gall trying to solve the 1000-year oia
problems of Europe.

children properly, (Don’t check me

other people how to raise their kids.
