Are We Going To
"Hold The Bag"?
We would like to be optimistic about the proposed Federal school
aid bill passing with a rider barring funds from school districts and
counties refusing to desegregate as the U. S. Supreme Court decreed,
but it looks very much like the bag is being readied for us to hold.
Undoubtedly the controversial rider introduced by Representative
Adam C. Powell will get a large Republican and out-of-the-South Dem
ocrat vote in the House of Representatives, and the lower chamber
may even pass it, but the prospect of the Senate doing so seems un
fortunately to be remote.
Not only are the segregationists in Congress opposed to the rider,
but also the President, the Welfare Department, the various big edu
cation associations, the building industry and the building trades
unions, for all of whom this close-to-two-billion dollars is a windfall.
President Eisenhower displaying remarkable ambivalence supports
the Supreme Court ukase against segregated public schools on the
one hand while on the other he insists that “there should be nothing
that is put on this thing that delays. . . construction.”
The segregationists are all for this big Federal handout because,
knowing that whether or not they desegregate their public schools, the
the amount of building to be done is extensive and costly, and this
appropriation will take them off the hook.
Then, this is a Presidential election year, and political wiseacres in
the GOP ranks feel that passage of a huge education appropriation
will tend to offset the probable loss of votes as a result of the Supreme
Court’s desegregation decree.
Of course, House Minority Leader Joe Martin can blandly assert
that he is confident of the measure’s passage in the House with the
rider attached, but so astute a politician as he must know that a Senate
filibuster will kill it
The construction and AFL-CIO lobbies have been fighting like mad
behind the scenes against the Powell rider because the former sees
very big contracts in nearly two billions of dollars of new business,
while the latter sees more construction jobs and a fat increase in initia
tion and membership fees, if the law passes with on rider.
The education associations, who have also decried the anti-segre
gation rider, are not unmindful of the advantages to the profession
of thousands of new schools, meaning many more jobs on all levels.
The galling thing about this is that even those who favor public
school desegregation will have to go along with whatever laws is pass
ed and help finance the project because they have no choice, and that
means most Negroes and a large proportion of whites.
So, we fear that those of us who applaud, and support, the U. S.
Supreme Court desegregation decree, are going to be left holding the
From Around Nebraska
From time to time, Blair has dreamed of new payrolls and
businesses for the community. Oddly enough, no one has given
much consideration to a creamery although similar businesses
have been highly successful at Tekamah, Lyons and numerous
other places. /
Less than 25 miles away is the creamery at Logan, Iowa
which last week held its annual meeting with an attendance of
The Logan creamery is another which has been successful
and the report given to the stockholders revealed that in spite of
drouth conditions the creamry produced 62,000 pounds more
butter in '55 than it did in ’54. Total amount of butter produced
was 1,7233,121 pounds, and the gross business done by the
creamery was in excess of $980,000. Milk producers in the
area were paid $14,000 in dividends over and above the regular
amount given them for their cream.
A marked fox was, killed last week by a hunter near Scrib
ner. The fox had ears in which V-shaped notches had been cut,
the Scribner Rustler reported. It is presumed the fox had been
in captivity while young and had escaped to resume his life as a
The same hunter reported that a short time prior to killing
the fox, he had caught a coon which was wearing a collar. The
newspaper is seeking information about the collar to determine
how far the coon might have traveled from his captors.

A style show, recently staged at Neligh for the benefit of
the community hospital, netted $1,300 in proceeds, the Neligh
Leader reported last week. The big affair turned out to be a
social highlight of the year. Lyle DeMoss of Omaha was the
Master of Ceremonies. Sixty-four models strutted their stuff.
They were recruited from Neligh, Clearwater, Ewing, Tilden,
Orchard, Omaha, Petersburg and numerous other places.

Last week the City Council at Central City ordered the use
of Parking Meters abandoned for 90 days to see if the 5c park
ing fee was having any effect on business there. So during that
time, the police department slipped the heads off the meter
poles and put them into storage.
All of this happened just in time for the merchants to use
the meter poles as standards for their flags and on Washington’s
birthday the streets were lined with flags stuck into the poles.
It was a sample of American ingenuity at work.

The City Council at South Sioux City is asking for bids on
a water improvement program which will cost an estimated

At Pawnee City, voters defeated a school bond election by
a narrow margin last week. The $250,000 bond issue was voted
down. Those favoring amounted to 53% of the votes cast and

A Proposed Constitution

for basic organization and operation. This has been done in
the interest of speeding up the Association’s approach to some

nesses located in this part of Omaha. Simplicity has been
observed, too, because of the obvious probability that additions
and ammendments will be made by the Association’s member
ship as it sees fit from time to time after the constitution has

The “do it yourself” hobby
which is sweeping the country
means a lot of happy, worth-while
hours spent with materials and
tools, but there is the attendant
danger that one may be injured
in one way or another. The mis
use of hand tools, is the cause
of many injuries, some of them
The National Safety Council
lists four “failures” that cause
most of the injuries which result
from the use of hand tools.
1. Failure to use the proper
tool for the job to be done.
2. Failure to use a tool as it
ought to be used.
3. Failure to Keep tools in pro
4. Failure to keep tools in their
proper places when not in
Tools should be kept in good
condition. Wood handles should
be firm and smooth, made from
straight-grained material, and
securely attached. Blades should
be kept sharp and have proper
angles, because sharp tools are
safer and more efficient than dull
ones. Dull tools may slip, stick,
or slide and cause accidents or
injuries. Replace split, broken,
or sharp-edged handles. Avoid
splinters and other wounds. Don’t
fail to get first aid for any cut
or scratch, no matter how slight.
Either a chest or a rack is good
for the storage of tools, but which
ever type of storage arrangement
is used, tools should be handled
carefully when being removed
or replaced. Carry any cutting
tool with the blade facing down
ward. Always cut away from you
when using a knife. Do not use
any substitute for a hammer.
When driving nails, start the nail
with a few light taps, then remove
your hand and proceed.
In addition to the hand tools,
much powered machinery is now
being used, even for the more
simple tasks, and this needs to be
handled with great care.
When. you increase your ma
chinery, you need to also increase
operational care for the same de
gree of safety.

The oil fever is booming in Garden County in the Oshkosh
vicinity. The Garden County News carried three double-column
headlines last week telling about new oil leases being sought, an
oil drilling project which is now going on and an oil drilling out

a map is not handy, is located east and north of Sidney where
the big oil strike has been going for several years.
A Tempo Exclusive Uncovers
Capitol Hill's Scandal:
1. A Midwestern Senator, whose ;
constituents are 90 percent gas
users, voted with the natural
gas lobby to increase his constitu
ents’ gas bills. The same Senator
did not get an outright bribe, but
he was given a stock tip-—inside
information from the oil and gas
boys. He invested in the stock
whose value quadrupled almost

Senator took a host of relatives
and friends with him on a Euro- j
pean pleasure jaunt at the tax
payers’ expense. He left his son
behind in Spain with written
authorization to draw taxpayers’>
money from the U. S. embassy, j
The young man withdrew $1,000
worth of Spanish pesos, came back
the next day for more. Before he
left, he had spent $4,500 in
government money for wine, wo
men and souvenirs.
3. A Republican Senator put
his brother on the public payroll j
for two years and paid the college
tuition of two young friends from
government funds. None of them
did a lick of work for the taxpay
ers, though the Senator claimed
the two college boys were “in
vestigating Communist infiltra
tion on the campus.”
There are a half do'zen other
examples just as bad. Probably
the biggest scandal is the lavish
squandering of government “coun
terpart” money over-seas. The
result has been free-spending
binges. Some of Congress’ most
notorious penny-pinchers, once
they’ve passed the U. S. boundar
ies, act as if their, cost conscien
ces were held up at the border.

the American Aociation of Nurs
Location of the outdoor living
space is a matter of convenience.
If you wish regularly to serve
food there, it should be near tha

the quietest location, with shrubs
and trees used for sound barriers.
For sun bathing it must be pri

Once located you can make the
