Nebraska Woman's Enviable
Record In Library War Work
From Tedious Duties Along Mexican Border, Harriet
Long of Madison 'was Sent to A. E. F. University
At Beaune, France Later In Charge of Occupied
Area In Germany.
New York, Jan. 20. (Special.)
A Nebraska woman, Miss Harriet
Long, now at her home in Madison,
Neb., is declared by the American
Library association to have made a
remarkable record in the library war
work' for the army. Miss Long,
who recently returned to America
after almost a year of overseas
service, served in several widely
separated fields and achieved dis
tinction in each. .
After a period of arduous service
on the Mexican .border, she was
sent overseas by the American Li-1
brary association, to become as-1
sistant librarian at the "Doughboy
university" run for the A. E. F.
men at Beaune, France. Last June,
when demobilization resulted in the
closing of the university, she was
sent to Coblenz. There she was at j
first assistant and later librarian in
charge of the Coblenz library, the
headquarters for the service of the
American Library association to the
entire occupied area. Miss Long
was on post at the Coblenz library
from June until December, 1919,
when she yielded to the call of
home, and secured her release from
her long- period of duty.
On the Mexican Border.
' Early in 1918, Miss Long left her
work as librarian of the Brumback
library, Van Wert, O., to enter the
library war service. Her first as
signment was on. the Mexican bor- ;
der organizing a library system to
satisfy the reading demands of the
federal troops engaged in the bor
der patrol. She established head
quarters at San Antonio. About the
time Foch was planning" the great
offensive that materialized in mid
summer, 1918, Miss Long was tour
ing the military posts of the
Brownsville district along the Rio
Grande, trying with the aid of
books to ease the lot of regular
army soldiers unfortunate enough
to be sent to the border when there
was a real fight overseas.
Little was heard of Mexican bor
der troubles during the war, and the
sad lot of these soldiers.ymarooned
at hot, sandy outposts has almost
escaped note. On her first trip up
the Rio Grande, through desert
country, Miss Long found y some
members of, the army detail at
Point Isabel, a "jumping-off place"
who had been there for two years
without reading matter or recrea
tion. "Sand and mesquite are scarcely
adequate to keep one's sonl from
starvation, and yet that has been
their daily diet," she wrote.
900 Readers At All Hours.
Miss Long won the support of
Colonel Slocum, commanding Fort,
Brown, the headquarters of the
Brownsville district, and with his
helpful co-operation managed to fjp t
books to every post in the district.
Her work effectively removed the
condition which had led troops dur
ing the Mexican border trouble of
1916 to follow railroad tracks in the
hope of finding reading matter
dropped from passing trains.
Overseas - at "Beaune university,
Miss' Long came into intimate ac
quaintance with - the unique and
thoroughly . American educational
experiment. Here the .soldiers on
leave from their outfit studied busi-,
ness and technical courses, law,
medicine, music, engineering, letters
and many other subjects. The li
brary, comprising 30,000 volumes,
was in charge of L. L. Dickerson,
librarian of Grinnell college, Iowa.
Without the library, the univer
sity could not have undertaken its
task. In it could be found 900 read
ers and students at practically any
time during the day from 8 in the
morning until 9 in the evening. Miss
Long's work here was so valuable
that when demobilization closed the
university and the occupied area of
Germany became the chief zone of,
operations, her designation for this
work was immediate.

Nebraska Association Opposes
Repeal of Mixed Flour
-Joeggi Elepted
Members of the Nebraska Millers'
association passed a resolution en
dorsing Herbert Hoover, shoul he
become a candidate for the presi
dency, at their annual meeting at
the Chamber of Commerce yester
day. In another resolution the associa
tion opposed the "state monopoly
on casualty insurance," and appoint
ed a committee vof three to meet with
the industrial relations committee at
Lincoln to state their reasons for
opposing it.
'Oppose Flour Law Repeal.
Continuance of weekly reports to
millers, instituted by big Omaha
grain corporations, was asked. The
association. opposed the repeal of the
mixed flour law.
Paul Jaeggi of Columbus, Neb.
was elected president of the associa
tion for the coming year; J. N. Mc
Cartney, vice president, and W. H.
Yoke treasurer. J. N. Campbell was
re-elected secretary.
Charles T. Neal, second vice presi
dent of the United States Grain cor
poration, reviewed the history of the
grain corporation, and quoted statis
tics ; to show that wheat exports
during 1919 were larger than during
any previous year. There should
have been plenty left in this coun
try, however, and any difficulty in
securing wheat here resulted from a
shortage of cars for its transporta
tion, and not a shortage of supply,
he declared.
The morning session of the asso
ciation was devoted to the ap
pointment of committees on reso
lutions and nominations, and the re
port of the secretary, J. N. Campbell,
of Onwha.
Association Growing.
Mr. Campbell in his report called
attention to the growth of the
millers' association, stating that
members now produced 75 per cent
of the flour milled in the state." He
mentioned the sale of "soft wlieat
straight" flour at $1.60 for one-eighth
of a barrel by the United States
Grain corporation, but asserted that
so far the sale of this grade of flour
has had little effect on the miller's
business in Nebraska. (
