HOW TO WRITE TO WAR
Recent changes in instruction for
addressing communications to Doug
las County servicemen held as pris
oners of war are being sent this week
to their relatives, Mrs. Fred Whit
comb, Chairman of the local Red
Cross prisoners of war committee,
New rulings tor addressing prison
ers held by Japan are as follows:—If
the prisoner’s camp address is known
mail should be addressed directly to
the individual prisoner in the partic
ular camp, via New York City. If
the camp address is unknown, mail
should be addressed to the prisoner in
care of Hurye Johokyoku, New York

TO WHOEVER WROTE THIS:
The message below was received in the mail with
out any signature or other identification. But who
ever wrote it has expressed in plain, understandable
language, the reasons Omaha citizens are anxious
to keep Nebraska Power Company as it is. We
extend our thanks to the author.
The success and progress of every business enterprise
is dueAto the Exceptional fitness and efficiency of
its executives. The reason men rise to such leader-'.,
ship is their possession of outstanding ability,
energy, experience and power to inspire fellow workers.
The Nebraska Power Company offers indisputable proof
of these facts. But when politics enter into the
conduct of any business, these vital items are ignored
and the relation between buyer and seller is ignored.
The record of the Nebraska Power Company for over
23 years past beats a thousand distorted promises
coming from any source.
We wrote in the words "in large measure" because
we are fully aware that it takes the combined
effort and skill of all of our Company's employees
— as well as efficient management — to provide
dependable electric service at low cost.
