Often it’s a case of not enough money; often it’s a continuing argument on how money should be spent. The two are not unrelated. But if the money problem results in a divorce it also results in making the money problems even worse, for then there are two households, not one, to maintain. Since money is so vital a factor, however, in married life, the handling of it should be given greater attention. The fact is that more often than not, it isn’t an actual shortage of money that causes the trouble, but inept or careless handling of it. Frequently a family has only a vague notion of where the money goes. Two things can definitely be done to make money a servant in stead of a master. One is for a family to lay out a reasonable buget with fixed—but not too high—allotment for savings. Maybe the bud get won’t permit the family to have everything it wants, but it will help it to have what it needs and to get more pleasure out of what it gets. A second thing is to pay bills by bank check so that „a closer watch on the outgo of the family income can be maintained. At the end of the month the cancelled checks tell the story and show where the loopholes are. Of course, there are many other causes for divorce—drunkenness, Jealousy, religious differences and the like but money, say the experts, is the chief villian in one way or another. An Overdose of Fear Writing in Life Magazine, not long ago, Dr. George Crille, Jr., 1 surgeon at the Cleveland Clinic, charged that those responsible for telling the public about disease have “chosen to use the weapons of fear, believing that only through fear can the public be educated.” "Newspapers and magazines have spread this fear,” he went on, “know ing that the public is always interested in the melodramatic and the frightening.” Ths observation is particularly pertinent now in regard to the wide publicity being given Asian influenza and the predictions that a vast epidemic is inescapable this winter. The fact that certain Cali fornia health experts recently declared that there was no reason to expect an epidemic seems to have been ignored in favor of the more “melodramatic ami frightening” forecasts. Dr. John T. Barrett, chairman of the Rhode Island state committee on immunization says that the publicity on Asian flue is “totally out of proportion with the danger involved.” At worst, this latest "popu lar” ailment cannot be compared with the type of influenza prevalent in 1917-18. Psychosomatic medicine emphasizes the harmful effects of fear and anxiety and echoes Job’s statement that ‘the thing I greatly fear ed is come upon me.” Disease is not a matter of germs and viruses only. Efforts toward immunization through vaccine are commendable but thatis not the sole means of immunization. Many centuries ago the Psalmst said: “because thou has made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; there shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.” This is not only beautiful prose but a beautiful truth. Heart Attacks and You A recent survey shows that the occurrence of coronary heart di sease is highest in New York and lowest in New Mexico. This is important information, for every year 230,000 men and 130,000 women die when one of their small coronary arteries clog up the bloodstream. This clogging is caused by small, fatty substances, and is connected with what we now know as the amount of cholesterol in the bloodstream. In addition to the number of victims mentioned above, it is esti mated that as many as a million Americans suffer minor heart attacks during the year, from which they recover, many of which are never reported. Not consdering these, the occurrence of coronary heart disease is increasing in the United States. We should all try to slow down the life we lead, and consider our hearts a little more sympathetically. It is no great distinction to lead in the rate of the occurrence of coronary heart disease among the nations of the world, a position which the United States now bolds. News From Around Nebraska Another highway connection which will effect folks in the vicinity of Blair is the announcement in the Oakland Independent last week that the work of pouring concrete on the road between Oakland and West Point is about to begin. The connecting link will provide a short cut to Omaha for those who are coming from the West and will also eliminate much traffic which they would otherwise encounter in the Fremont area. • • • The Leo Faucett home in the north part of Tekamab has been sold to Mrs. Goldie Nelson who has announced plans to remodel the palatial home Into a swanky restaurant and tea room. The home, one of the early da; show places of Tekamah, hi known I locally as the former E. C. Huston residence. The Burt County Plaindetlef showed a picture of the grand old home In their issue of September 19th. * e e The Davey school In the north part of Lancaster county is battling with the town of Cereaco, which ia in the south part of Saunders county, over an alleged “raiding" of the Davey school for pupils. Davey claims the Cereeco bus is making a specif) loop Into the district and is picking up pupils who would ordinarily go to Davey, They claim, too, that Cereaco has cut the price of tuition fat order to attract the students Transportation coats in the Ceres co bus have been reported to be 2&e per day and the tuition la re ported as low aa 90 per year. The Cereaco Superintendent in last week's 1mm of the Wahoo Newspaper did not deny the acceptance of the Davey students but huuetod that they had been received without eeilettalton sad that everything he had done was ethical and above board 11m Davey district hat called the matter to the attention of the State Eduea Prosperity Is Due To Be Watched People took more money out of their accounts in savings anti loan associations last July than I they put in, the latest report of j j the Federal Home Loan Bank j I Board reveals. That is only the, third month that has happened j in the last 16 years. The other two were right after the start of ( World War n and the Korean War. Employment dropped by 800.000 last month, a much larger decline than is normal for the season, the Commerce and Labor Departments report. Since the start of the year, factory employ ment has declined each month, after adjustment for seasonal variations. There are now 280.000 fewer factory jobs than there were in January. Fewer units of private housing were started during the first eight months of 1957 than for any comparable perio once 1940, the Labor Department reports.1 The total of 700,000 units is 11 per <ent below the same period last year. Cash dividend payments by cor porations issuing public reports totaled 4 per cent more during the January-August period of this year than they did during the same period of 1956. the Com merce Department says. WHAT DOES 'RICH' MEAN TO TIME MAGAZINE? On September 9, Time maga zine, a Henry Luce publication, stated flatly: “The U. S. farmer is a rich man." On the same day, half of the farm familities in tue the Census Bureau revealed that U. S. made less than $2 371 last year. That was $125 less than half of them made in 1952, the bureau reported. A bureau spokesman said that more and more farmers are spending more and more time working off the farm to add tr their incomes. Question: Where does Time get its farm news, Rockefeller Center? About 900,000 people will work on the new national highway j construction project when it reaches peak activity. 1 Mrs. Hazel Woods Mrs. Hazel Woods, age 54 years, of 1418% No. 24th Street, ex pired Thursday September 18, 1957*at a local hospital.

The plant now employs 120 people and has an annual sales volume of four million dollars. Machinery for the dehydrating work is being moved to David City from a plant in Minnesota and when it is installed and running, the plant will need an even larger crew of workers than it now has. The plant buys eggs from producers over a large area. • • • Dixon County (county seat, Ponca) ha* a vacancy in the county board due to the death of a member. By the middle of last week there had been 8 men asking for the job and the remaning super ! visors had indicated they would consider the matter some time in October. The large number of applicants is a rather unusual cir cumstance as most public offices are not being sought after at this time. • • • Thieves broke into the Safeway store at Neligh last week and carried off not only the store’s receipts but the safe as well. The Neligh Leader related that the thieves broke into the store by pry ing open the Jront door with crowbars and then used one of the store’s carts to haul the safe out of the store' and across the street to load it into a truck. The amount of money lost was not revealed. • • • The Crete News featured a local man who had built a 16-foot cabin cruiser which he planned to use in a liesurely cruise down the Missouri and Mississippi rivers to New Orleans. He expects to make his home there. The boat, a barge-like craft, will have electric lights and all the comforts of home. • • • Lexington is among 16 Nebraska towns which has been given approval for federal aid in building a sewage treatment plant. That community will receive $114,600 in assistance. No definite plans have been drawn or accepted there yet, the Dawson County Herald stated. • • • A quick-acting truck driver averted what could have been a catastrophy in Ogallala last week. He moved a truck load of ex- - plosives away from a fire. The truck, carrying a load of explosives was parked on the driveway to a service station. Another truck came in and filled up and upon leaving, a projecting piece on the truck body caught on the pump hose. Before the truck could be stopped the hose had been broken and something touched a spark which set the gasoline on fire. The flaming gasoline ran toward the truck load ed with explosives. The driver, who was out of the cab at the time, saw the blase, ran to the truck and moved it just as flames were dangerously near the truck. The fire department finished the job at the station. Millions of tiny red aunts migrated one night last week from an underground home in a lawn in Seward, to another spot more than a block away. The migration attracted dozens of interested persons who watched the movement with interest. The creatures traveled 300 feet and ended their trek in a hole which led be neath a sidewalk. The apparently pre arranged route was follow ed closely. The ants traveled in a path about two inches wide, moved swiftly and all made exactly the same turns and twists en route. At the end of the route they tumbled into a small bole and disappeared from sight. The mass migration required more than five hours but by the next morning the travelers had dis appeared and left no trace except a deep grove tn the sand over which they had traveled. The Seward Independent showed a pic ture of the ants in motion. • • • A new busline has been established between Albion and Co lumbus, the Albion News announced last week. It will operate on a seventy a week basis. • • • Albion schools opened last Monday after having been dosed a week because of an epidemic of Asian flu which swept the com munity. There were 117 cases in the public school. Cedar Rapids schools, which hat* an enrollment of 80, had 39 pupils absent, e e a Tbs Saddle Club at Red Cloud put on their annual llorae Play Days last Saturday Plve saddle dubs came to town lor the event. Thera was a parade and an all aftarnoon program ta which cash prizes wars given for beet riding, best bones, ate. The stow always draws a large crowd, said the newspaper, Commareial Ad Contract Rules Up Grade Negro UNION CITY7 n! J—The use of the President's Committee on I Government Contracts for "a possible economic front break j through on race problems" is ' advocated in a leading editorin' in the October issue of The Sign, national Catholic magazine pub lished here. "The aim,” says the editorial, “can be the economic upgrading of the Negro, particularly in the South." "At present," the maga zine points out, “he is largely confined to farming and servic* occupations. For various reasons these accentuate his position of dependence and inferiority, “Belter jobs with better income would mean opportunities for improvements in bousing, educa tion and medical care. They would bring Negroes from rural areas into the cities where voting and educational rights are more likely to be respected. Economic independence can be an impor tant first step toward other forms of independence.” "Why is this approach feasible, whereas others present great dif ficulties?” the editorial ask? "Plants with large government contracts,” it asserts, "are usually national corporations. Employ ment policies can be adopted an-' implemented quietly, without giving occasion for demonstra tions or agitition.” "By all this,” The Sign a dds, "we do not mean that we should give up voting rights or school integration. But a major step forward in a neglected area would make these other steps easier. And it would lessen the bitterness and tensions that surround these other more explosive issues. U deserves to be tried at least.” The editorial deplores as a "tragic aspect of current attitudes on racial tension the tendancy on both sides to establish firm posi tions that are poles apart from, each other.” Declaring ”pru drtiee, as a cardinal virtue, is not the same as weakness* it pre diets. "A head on attack upor entrenched positions today would create unprecendented social ten sions. It might take the nation generations to recover Irom the strife thus engendered. Say Ike's Reasoning Is Often Wrong President Eisenhower, in set ting an alltime record by vetoing his third and fourth Federal em ployee pay raise bills, says the bills are unjustified by rising living costs.

IL__ .I... —= employee* in the low grades have been given increases that have kept pace with rising costs ei living since 1939. The President assumes that the 1951 pay caise placed classified workers and postal employees on a par with living costs. Ha is wrong. It didn't. Mr. Eisenhower says the vetoed wage bills disregard the “funda mental principle" of " fair and equitable treatment" In the re lation of one worker to another and in relaion to private em ployees. Ho is wrong. As Jerry Kluttz, well-informed Washing ton Post and Times Herald coin mnist, points out, the record shows plainly that the Govern ment’s own per diem employees, its laborers and mechanics, and employees in many private in dustries have been given wage increases in recent years that ar> I far mere than those given postal and classified workers. The President says flatly that the raises of 11 per cent for classified workers and $546 for postal workers would feed the fires of inflation. What did he say about the price boost ordered this year by the oil interests who are making bigger profits than ever. That’s right, nothing. 8 More Locals 100% Contribution to COPE Efforts i t ’ ■ Eight more local unions have won Honor' Awards for collecting voluntary conlribuions to COPE equivalent to at least $1 each from all their members.
