fourth —22 year old Midshipman
L. P. Gregg wins his commission
from the United States Naval
Academy this week. He gradu
ates in a class of 750, on June 3rd.
Gregg is a top man scholasti
cally for he was 22nd in his class
last yean and is ranked with the
status as “superior to most Phi
Beta Kappas.” He graduates
From Chicago, Gregg gradu
ated from Wendell Phillips High
School there and then joined the
Marines. Friends suggested he
try for a Naval Academy appoint
It was Rep. William Dawson’s
first Negro appointee and, of
course, Dawson will be on hand to
see his protege graduate. Also,
at the exercises will be his family,
Mrs. Rachell Gregg—who man
ages an ice cream parlor in Chi
cago—and his two sisters, Dor
othy, 24 and Rose, 20.
Upon receiving the gold bar
for a second lieutenant in the Air
Force, Gregg will later report
for flight training at Malden, Mo.
The six-footer is among 180 mid
shipman who have chosen or been
assigned to the Air Force under
a Defence Department ruling
that Vt. of the class be assigned to
the Air Force. It was easy for
Gregg to choose tht air force for
he has always “wanted to fly.”
A quiet guy, with little time
for extra social activities, Gregg
says he has no plans to marry
yet. ‘“That will have to wait
for a while,” he grins.

Prayer for the United States
0 God our Father, we pray that
the people of America, who have
made such progress in material
things, may now seek to grow in
spiritual understanding. For we
have improved ends. We have
better ways of getting there, but
we have no better places to go.
We can save more time, but are
not making any better use of the
time we save. We need Thy help
to do something about the world’s
true problems—The problem of
lying, which is called propaganda,
the problem of selfishness, which
is called self-interest; the problem
of greed, which is often called
profit; the problem of license, dis
guising itself as liberty; the prob
lem of lust, masquerading as love;
the problem of materialism, the
hook which is baited with security.
Hear our prayers, 0 Lord, for the
spiritual understanding which is
better than political wisdom, that
we may see our problems for what
they are. This we ask in Jesus’
MONDAY, MAY 30, 1955 A
PERFECT MEMORIAL DAY, not
too hot nor too cold, a lovely day
for picnicking or fishing; the fish
were biting fast and furious, just
as fast as the lone, little lady
threw in the hook she would pull
one out, the lady was very happy
and thrilled as she only has time
for her favorite sport on Holi
days, she watched her string of
fish grow bigger and longer each
one that was added, evening came,
time to go home, she gathers her
lunch box and fish and started
for home, a man stopped to talk
with her and asked, How many
fish she had caught,” and being
truthful and thrilled with all the
different sizes and kinds of fish
she was taking home, she quickly
answered, “Oh about sevtny-five”,
“Well”, said the man, “don’t you
know that you have sixty over the
limit and I can charge you $15.00
a piece for them”. She had no
money to pay and had visions of a
nice long rest. The lady, endow
ed with a gift of “gab” told the
man such a sad story that with
tears in his eyes, he told her to
give all the fish away to the fish
ers near by and left only fifteen I
for herself. She went on home
and that night, that home looked
like a millionaire’s mansion.

Mississippi’s Senator Eastland,
made a blast against the United
States’ Supreme Court for its de
cision outlawing segregation in
the United States’ Supreme Court
for its decision outlawing segre
gation in schools—at which he
charged that such men as Howard
University’s Dr. E. Franklin
Frazier and the distinguished so
ciologist Gunnar Myrdal—needed
investigating because of their in
direct participation in the historic
decision. Eastland has introduced
a resolution citing at least “six

proposes without any specific

Even Barns Have New
Styles; Less Red And
Less Size Is Trend
The big red bams, bulging
symbols of Ameria’s rural abun
dance, are heading for some
Long adorning the landscape,
many picturesque bams stand
outmoded by present-day effi
ciency farming. When they bum
or deteriorate beyond use, smaller
bams will likely take their place.
There are several reasons.
Baled hay needs less space than
hay mows. The trend now is
against a stall for every cow and
toward “roaming” quarters in
stead. Compact mechanized
equipment, housed in a shed, re
places work horses.
Already some ultramodern
barns have developed, including
ones. One new-type structure
was spotted by an airplane pilot
about 20 miles west of Montreal,
Canada. He mistook its glinting
surface for a flying saucer. Sil
very fiber glass sections werg
fixed in a wooden framework,
forming a 32-foot high dome 83
feet across. Beneath it the cattle
man sheltered 23 Ayrshire cattle,
a year-round feeding lot, milking
stalls, several score chickens and
turkeys, and his farm implements.
The red bam is no more a stan
dard type of American building
now than the little red school
house Red as a predominant col
or seems definitely passing.
Green and white bams are fre
quently seen—sometimes gray
barns. Many farmers strive to
make bam and house colors har
Red bams long ago became an
American habit. One explanation
is that early upstate New Yorkers
is something that ought to be
looked into.” The rest of the
Senate paid scant attention to
Eastland anl said off the record
that they did not anticipate such
Commented Dr. Frazier on
Eastland’s remarks: “I’m a So
cialist and I am under nobody’s
influence. I do my own thinking,
although Mr. Eastland doesn’t be
| lieve any Negro can think. Any
body who has read my book knows
there is no communism in it.
Dr. Myrdal is in Europe as
executive secretary of the United
Nations Economic Commission
and Dr. B. H. Braneld of New

research cited by the Supreme

Ark-Sar-Ben today announced
the names of twenty-one Nebr
askans who will receive the Oma
ha civic organization’s annual
Good Neighbor awards for their
unselfish and neighborly deeds
during the past year.
The judges, who studied nom
inations from every part of the
state, named one individual as an
oustanding example of Nebraska
good neighbors. He is W. H.(Big
Steve) Stevens of Orleans who
has consistently given freely of
his time, interest and personal
funds for the welfare of his
neighbors. He instigated and led a
drive to reorganize the Chamber
of Commerce, voluntarily per
forms daily duties for the less
fortunate, makes his services a
vailable for any activity and in
general performs for the over-all
benefit of his community.
In addition the judges selected
the names of a host of other per
sons to receive the coveted Good
Neighbor pins for their services
to fellow Nebraskans. Ak-Sar
Ben President E. F. Pettis said
the rewards should be regarded
as an expression of thanks from
the entire State.
The individuals cited:
Bill Lee of Ord for his round
the-clock participation and lead
ership in numerous activities to
make his community and sur
rounding area a better place for
Mr. and Mrs. Milford Christ
ensen of Maywood for their active
interest and participation in
youth work, particularly through
their leadership of the Maywood
4-H Riding Club.
Mrs. Harriet Galloway of Loup
City for performing numerous
duties over and above her regul
ar work as librarian, and for her
friendly and wise counselling of
Elmer Peterson of Hordville for
his outstanding participation in
the advancement of 4-H Club
work and especially his as
sistance in the successful 4-H.

Whatever interior rearrange
ments modem farm techniques
bring, the huge barn that orna
mented America's lSth and 19th
century countryside will have a
lasting place on artists’ canvases
and history pages, “large as pal
laces,” one foreigner wrote of
Pennsylvaia Dutch bams in the
1750’s. An early 19th century
visitor described “bams of stone,
a hundred feet long and forty
wide, with two floors and raised
roads up to them- Below are
stables, stalls, pens and all sorts
DUTCH LIKE DECORATIONS
In contrast to the strictly
utilitarian design of barns far
ther west Pennsylvania structures
offer some highly imaginative
painted decorations. A six-petal
flower motif may have been a
pre-Christian symbol of immor
tality. The spinning whorl, not
able in Lehigh County, is trace
able to ancient Troy and (Crete.
The star or lily pattern, possibly
a Chetan symbol of the sun, may
date from 1,300 B. C.
Thrifty tillers of Pennsylvania
earth deny that these decorations
were conceived to ward off evil.
Rather the so-calld “hex signs”
indicate a pride in buildings that
reflect prosperity flowing from a

to participate in many community
affairs, and recently made the
