A Statement by
George W. Olsen
As the defeated Democratic Can
didate for United States Senator in
the Primary Election in Nebraska
on jjune ll.th, 1945, I am Presenting
My Name., GEORGE W. OLSEN as
a ‘Write-in’ Candidate for UNITED
STATES SENATOR to the Voters
of Nebraska who are dissatisfied
with the Other Candidates. Usual
ly in an Election the defeated Can
didates abide by the result, but in
this one instance, the Direct Pri
■ -•> -»■.. -
mary was thrown out and the Con
vention System of naming and fil
ing. Candidates was used on the
Why ire we Candidates of a Party,
if and when the party leaders can
donate money as a State Commit
tee to another candidate of the
same party. The Direct Primary
Law was enacted to do away with
the Boss Control by a few over the
many,-and I am glad to State the
Republican Pre-Primary Conven
tion endorsed Candidates who
obeyed the Direct Primary by filing
their names properly.
I feel that it is only right and
proper for me to ask you to write in
myname,GEORGE W. OLSEN, un
der tjhe names of Butler and Mekota,
candidates for United States Sen
ator, and Vote for me because I
rightfully belon^ there as the Bona
fide Democratic name on the Ballot
with over 15,4)00 votes in the Demo
cratic Pr jpiary.
A Vote for me is a vote against the
old-fashioned Convention System
of naming candidates.
Enough votes for me keeps the
Direct Primary Law as it belongs
and means the death of party bosses
for many more years.
GEORGE W. OLSEy,

he knows it. He says he loves me I
but he goes out with another wo
man. When I see them together
it burns me up. What do you think
of me getting me another man
and flirt with him in front of him
Ans: That's the sensible thing
for you to do. There is no logic
to your sitting home while he goes
out and has fun even though he
does claim he loves you. He has
not proved it. Make other friends
just as soon as you can and give
vo'!?- boyfriend a little stiff com
petition and see how he reacts to
a dose of his own medicine. Per
haps it will open his eyes.
C. B.—I left home last May and
promised my girl friend I would
return in a month and we would
get married. Immediately after I
left I got into a little trouble—
nothing serious but I am now in
fail. I thought I would be out 3
months ago and told her I was
coming home so we could wed.
Now she is getting pretty sore.
Should I let her know the truth
or continue making promises un
til I can get out?
Ans: The young lady’s patience
is wearing pretty thin and she
has reached the point where she
doesn’t believe that jmju love her.
Had she known the truth she
would have realised that vou
could not return of vour own free
wih therefore, she feels that pos
sibiv von nre misleading her. The
truth will have to come out and
you may as well write her the
facts That’s the chance you will
have to take.
N. M.—I am a widow, self sup
porting and have a home of my
own. I am not at all satisfied here
and it seems there will always be
confusion in mv imrned’'’te neigh
borhood although I da all I can to
get along. I want to-sell and I
would like some advice.
Ans: Living in the midst of con
fusion is unpleasant but you must
not dispose of your home and
trust to. luck in findng another.
Take your time about making a
change. Look around and make in
quiries and the chances are, you
wil be able to exchange your nice
place for some other more to your

me as long as I can remember, ’k
was away for five years in ser
vice. I received all kinds of gifts
and 3 or 4 letters a week. He is
home now and has been for nine
months and trying to get serious
with me but each time I put him
off. Yesterday he told me he was
going to ask my cousin to be his

not eat or sleep. I knew that I
loved him but just wouldn’t ad

LESSON Number Three
There was a time when the
English language in America was
used the same as in England. But
it has long since been discarded
and today we who live on this
side of the Atlantic Ocean speak
American. It is a language that
is expressive, with humor and
great imagination, being enriched
with many threads drawn through
by the Pilgrim who first landed
on our shores.
We Americans made our own
language. It is reflected by Ger
man, Irish-English, Yiddish, and
many different languages spoken
by the immigrants. Some of our
words have passed through a
shortenng process, and they are
The English language in Amer
ica is valuable. It shows how
words are made and how they
reflect the life of people. This
value will help you to speak well
and make good conversation.
Much has been written and
spoken about the use of slang.
Some slang words are rugged and
are impressive of the things they
signify. Wherein, they are not con
sidered the finest English. The
occasional use of slang, makes
language more vivid and color
ful. Some words we use today
familiarly never would have been
used by a writer a number of
years ago, as correct English
They would be regarded as inde
licate and used as a slang word
only. However, slang words can
be used, but they should be used
with judgement "and moderation.
For they are like uncut diamonds
in a beautiful jewel case. In
another sense, unpolished words
in a great language.
