Urges Nebraskans to Plant ,
Trees as Soldier Memorials
Governor McKelvie Issues
Proclamation in Which He
Tells Why Arbor Day
Should Be Observed.
By a Staff Correspondent.
Lincoln, April 10. A proclama
tion issued by Governor McKelvie
calling for the observance of Arbor
day, April 22. 1919, recommends the
planting of trees to commemorate
fallen Nebraska heroes in the world
war. This is the proclamation :
No day in the year means
more to the people of Nebraska '
in a material sense than Arbor
day. This grows out of the .
fact that the day primarily sug- 1
gests the necessity and ad
vantage of planting trees, there
by adding beauty to the land
scape and value to the land, fur
nishing shade for man and beast
in summer and protection from
the cold blasts of winter winds.
Over and above this, the trees
furnish a home and nesting
place for birds fof all varieties.
These greet us in the morning
and evening, making the air
vocal with song. The chatter
of the wren, the song of blue
bird and robin, the whistle of
the bob white are a means of
inspiration; to all and their pres
ence of untold value to the
farmer, the gardener and fruit
raiser. Insects of a thousand
kinds prey on the plants and
blossoms until at times our
crops are destroyed or in a large
measure made less 6n account
of their depredations. Birds de
stroy these by the millions and '

morning when their caboose, stuck
in a snow drift, was struck by a

' Soon after the accident the wires
went down with sleet and iee so that
nothing definite can be learned here
as to the extent of their injuries.

are, therefore, the friends of
mankind. These should be en
couraged and protected and fur-,
nished with places for propaga
tion. Trees supply most birds
with this opportunity and, there
fore, we should plant and pro
tect trees, not only on Arbor
day, but at all proper seasons of
the year. Plant a tree it will
be there long after you have
gone, a monument to your sin
cere desire to be a blessing to
the world.
I would urge ' that schools,
public and private, and our state
institutions, as far as possible,
take an interest in the day and
organize for its proper observ
ance; that each family plant at
least one tree. It may be for
fruit, shade or ornament, but
plant and cultivate it, for it will
be a source of pleasure and prof
it in after years.
Arbor day this year is the first
to occur after the great war, and
may be fittingly observed by
planting a tree that will develop
in strength and beauty, in com
memoration . of some one or
more who gave all they had that
the world might be made free
from autocratic rule and mili
tary despotism, and we trust the
beginning of an era' of universal
peace. Thus, the day may' be
made more sacred tljan any that
have preceded it.
To the end that all may the
better observe the day, I hereby
proclaim the twenty-second day
of April, A. D., 1919, a legal
' holiday. In testimony whereof,
I hereunto set my hand and
caused to be affixed the great
seal of the state of Nebraska,,
this, the ninth day of April, 1919.

old time.
