T Chancellor Boucher presentation of the University s Case to the legislature has receive favourable comment from newspaper editors the Ghoul the state. Putting it up to the legislature to decide How much Money the taxpayer can afford to spend upon the school with the Assurance that the Chancellor and regents will it t the most they can for the Money expended has made a hit with Moat observers. The situation has been clearly presented and there is general agreement that this is the first step toward solving a difficult problem. The University head pointed out that they could use ten percent More Money than they have had in the current two year period and they Tell Why they could use it. However they do not insist that the amount be appropriated but Tell what they must do if a smaller amount of of Money is available. Quot there Are three things the legislature can do a says the grand Island Independent a and the regents pointed out what must be done by the University in each Carse. If the budget they request is approved the University can take care of the increased enrolment without any to amps in efficiency or curtailment of curriculum or facilities. If the budget is made the same As for the present biennium and the enrolment continues to grow there must be curtailment if there is to be no curtailment some limit must be placed on enrolment. If the budget is Neft smaller than for the present two years Thor must be a curtailment of both enrolment acid even the most Ardesd advocate of retrenchment would find this problem difficult. It is one thing to sound off for lowering taxes Aud another to advocate reduce expenditures the Only Means of reducing taxes it is one thing to embrace retrenchment a a general proposition and another to put a Finger upon the specific items to be parked. We May a assume that every advocate of Economy is sincere and still sympathizes with those who have the responsibility of doing the cutting. Tho students who spend time and incur expense any attending the University without taking or Nerving much says the grand Inland editor ale always a problem and always will be in a alai#1 of restitution Quot they do not flunk if they did the ablution would be easy. But they manage to a get by and at. The end of their four years they receive n diploma which states they have received an education. In truth they had As much real education when they left High school As when they left College. They achieved a Little gloss some knowledge that they will promptly forget and the mate has been a heavy expense for no particular purpose of state universities were Able to have selective enrolments they could do very Well with r much smaller appropriation. But their being state universities makes this impossible. A that is a rather doleful conclusion. Coming St this particular time when we Are beginning to accept Relief As a permanent proposition it is depressing to think that the listless student is another Burden from which a tax supported institution cannot escape. The Norfolk news studies and approves the proposal that a higher education at Public expense be limited both in extent and in kind to those who Are capable of pursuing it profitably a. The editor adds a in Short t Chancellor proposes More finishing course a in High school and Junior College thus relieving the University of the Burden of enrolling students to the lower classes and leaving it a to perform its two chief functions teaching and research much More effectively than at present with but few additions in Plant arid equipment and with slight if any increase in annual operating costs the Falls City journal see the Choice to be Between maintaining standards or lowering them and providing wider educational facilities adding Quot we fee that Pride in our High educational stand a which we cannot afford Here in Nebraska until such a time As our income again makes it possible to indulge in this and similar there Are a int of pros and cons and with All the help the school administrators Van give by an attitude of concern for taxpayer interests the legislators still have a knotty problem. A oui own r,7? we i finding in himself a likeness to the great Napoleon is Standard equipment in a modern dictator. Ruthless and unscrupulous action is a Mark of a Man of destiny for Rule of conduct which Ordinary men must observe do not apply to one who is marked for greatness. Napoleon s native land Corsica had Long but in non French territory Hitler was born in Austria a state which a been in Alliance with and in and lances against Germany no pole n a it to Power because to precarious position of revolutionary France ailed for a Strong Mam his conquests prospered for a Long time hut ended when Furo Peon Peoples stirred by a patriotism they crush him Napolz any d to Genius w e a form la Conquest victories were fruitless Solo g As Britain stood out against him and that one Power held out from the Start to the finish. Whether like stubborn determination animates t e Island people is something history has yet to Tell.

Next morning i mixed a Batch of Batter according to the prescription my Friend gave me and made a Briark of cakes. They were the Mcm pancakes i have Ever met. Flore a Good Many Farmers have become sceptical about Corn As the leading crop for this area More and More acres Hie devoted to raising different varieties of sorghum. There is a sorghum enthusiasm in the Rural air which i fear May carry us too far of enthusiasms often do a i Warp our judgment and result in piling up a surplus of Sty that is unsaleable. _ however the experts endorse the sorghum and i have nothing to offer in opposition except my prejudice. And my prejudice is based upon the fearsome Supi Ion that there must be something sinful in planting crops which Are wire to grow in Good seasons it has always seemed to me that a Farmer would cease being a real Farmer if he eliminated the uncertainties of his occupation and dealt in sure things. Perhaps my fear of farming getting to be too easy is gound less.

Napoli u knew that his land out at Franklin Nebraska recently the county agent had a lot of sooner Milo made into coarse flour suitable for making muffins and pancakes. A Large crowd of people attracted to the meeting of stockmen were fed on sooner Milo cakes with pork which had been fattened upon the Milo Grain. Next time they should have a Supply of sorghum syrup for the cakes and still further glorify this Plant which answers to the drouth stricken Farmer s prayer. If a Cook a inexpert As myself can produce Pancake of such delectable Quality from materials As cheap As this Home made flour of a Humble Gram Why does t somebody connected with Relief distribution Start a school of instruction to show people How to prepare a very inexpensive food this question occurred to me while mowing away my Milo cake with a. Fork. T venture to say that a Bushel of sorghum Grain would provide the meal basis for All the cakes and muffins i crowd of people could consume in Days of eating. Perhaps those of us who have s it me of the Best ideas on wholesome and inexpensive feeding should give s demonstration for the Benefit of those whose Relief budgets Are designed for them by sorial workers without regard to practical Economy ideas. Be. M. With the scissors railway age journal of the rail transportation Industry says that the roads have reached the Prosperity Peak in taxes. A Way Back in 1890,�?� continues the railway age Quot the tax Bdl of the railways per mile of line averaged $182. With a fairly slow but inexorable upward movement this figure passed the $20o Mark in 1894. The $300 Mark in 1906. The $400 Mark in 1910 and the $500 Mark in 1914. The Tempo then quickened the $600 level was topped in 1916, the $700 and $800 Levels were topped at. One jump in 1917, the $900 level was topped in 1918, and the $1,000 and $1,100 Levels were both topped in 1920. The continued. Annual railway taxes per mile of line first exceeded $1,200 in 1922, $1,300 in 1923, $1,400 in 1925, $1,500 in 1926, and finally exceeded $1,600 in 1929. Quot then came a downward trend. With depression reduced Gross and net earnings there was an automatic reduction in railway taxes based on those ear cos. Rail taxes per mile of line dropped steadily from 1929 through 1935, falling below $1,000 in the latter year. Then came the rebound. From $996 in 1935, railway taxes per mile of line jumped to $1,353 in 1936. To $1,388 in 1937, and to $1,463 in 1938. From 1935 to 1938 the increase was 47 percent. The tax Bills of the railways present some interesting comparisons. Rail mileage today is most closely matched by the mileage in existence of 1909. Yet. With approximately the same mileage Railroad taxes were Une 260 million dollars greater in 1938 than in 1909.�?� rippling rhymes then years ago Thomas hit Side of Casper Wyo Ai Rived in Beatrice to attend the funeral of his sister in Law mrs.

Inform your correspondent some of them with than a Tram of anger that general in Sheridan was an irishman and that his services to this country therefore must be regarded As a contribution by the Emerald Isle. General if p Bullard and general Hugh drum Are similarly claimed in the upper Register of a Long list of distinguished individuals which includes John l. Sullivan Gene Tunney James j.

Of of though i am jaded i d say no bitter thug if Rcv could be persuaded that they can t really sine Walt Mason. U rvs a by us Matthew Adam strive. Recorded information has it. However that general Sheridan was Horn in Albany n. Y., Aud that generals Bullard and drum Are natives general drum being indeed the son of an american officer who was killed in action in the american War against Spain. Sullivan Tunney Corbett and Hartnett also were born and Raused in this land and the feats for which they were famous barring a few strictly social victories by or. Sullivan in London were performed in the nation of their birth and allegiance. The claim advanced by Irish correspondents also by an Irish newspaper published in new York is one of great delicacy As your correspondent Learned last year when he awarded to Italy full credit for the lives and works of a Long Roll of famous if not exactly honoured individuals who Rose to Eminence in tile criminal Branch of american Endeavor. The italian Duce a press at the time was berating the United states As a gangster nation but rather oddly when the deeds of these missionaries were credited to Italy a generous gesture one would have thought there was much indignation against the aspersion on italian blood and culture. They were it appeared americans and victims of the corrupt environment of a barbarian country including even those who joined us in full maturity and hewed in More than a figurative sense a place in american hearts Nowr with regard to general Sheridan and the others cited by irishmen As Irish contributors to the greatness of the United states the Contention is reversed. They were or Are is the Case May be one is heatedly informed irishmen though born Here and their careers belong among the treasures of that great nation. So be it then but if it be so the list of noted Irish among us must be opened to others who Are plainly eligible on the same ground starting at random with the late Boss Dick Croker of new York. Or. Broker s career was in its Peculiar Way highly successful but his contribution to the political morals and Public welfare of the United states is one which Ireland May not be Alert to claim. Frank Hague the mayor of Jersey City a millionaire by dint of saving on a modest salary Ami his precocious son lately appointed to the highest court in now Jersey though not Long out of Law school arc two More who belong to Erm a Honor Roll by this argument. To Ireland also must go credit for the contributions to Good government and Public morals which have honoured the names of the o Connell Brothers of Albany and to Ireland also such glory As she May find in the lives and work of James m Gurley of Bosto Maurice b. Connolly of Queens senator this burned Pittman up by persuading him to Ofer a Bdl that would create an objectionable i special privilege without divulge ing to Hun their ulterior i suspects Tekoa slap Back he pointed out that 160 acres Quot i zeus. The United states should privately owned land in the Park receive the credit along with the punishment. Copyright id Washington Day Book by Preston Grover Washington a intramural squabble no. I at present goes on Between Secretary hit Mem Harold Tekoa and stately senator key Pittman of Nevada chairman of the Senate foreign relations committee. It is Over boat and picnic concessions on Boulder dam Reservoir on the Colorado. The Only thing the two important Public officials have in common is a hatred of they express often and forcefully. Next to Hitler it would seem they dislike each other most. The affair Over Lake Mead which is Boulder dam Reservoir is their second Battle of the Marne. The first was Over the confirmation of Ebert k. Burlew a a undersecretary of Interior. Ickes wanted him. He had had Long experience in the department. Pittman denounced him As unsuitable for such a Post. They fought that out. In Public lands committee and in the Senate. Ickes won. The second Battle began when Pittman proposed to Annex part of the Public Domain about Lake Mead As a recreation ground for Nevada. Boulder dam backs up water in precipitous Colorado Canyon for too Miles. A few Miles Back of the dam one Arm of this Lake reaches out into Nevada along the vegas Wash within 19 Miles of desert bound i As vegas to thousand population in southernmost Nevada there Are 2,610 Square mile of federally owned Public Domain around the Reservoir. Pittman introduced a Bill setting aside 12 Miles of it As a state Park his 12 Railes included the out reaching Arm of the Lake in vegas Wash. A a amblers interested the idea was for the state to set up a resort on the Lake Shore attract patrons from far and near As Well As make an Outing spot where Las vegans could sail boats fish and picnic. I As vegans endorsed the plan. So did the state legislature. Bitterly opposed was diminutive Boulder City created by the six companies which built the dam and now supported in part by the boat concessions at tile dam. Ickes out West on tour inspected the Park site. Into his ear were area were reported under option 1 to the 1,0s Angeles exile in is Nevada s Liberal gambling and Saloon License Laws Ickes Intimat-1 de there could be Quot unrestricted drinking and gambling in the area Pittman suspecting that this was Ickes Way of getting even for his earlier rough handling of Burlew. Denied there a any Gambler motive he said state Laws would prohibit gambling in the entire Park area. He even proposed to Gerrymander the Igo acres right out of Tho Park thus shutting it away from Access to the Lake. But Tokes remembered that Nevada s legislature had kept that state the hell roaring est spot in the u. 5. Pittman termed such an attitude a Quot reflection on the Good name of i the state of Nevada a and predicted the Senate would pass the Bill and slap Ickes Back it g his Indian paintings and tiled bathrooms.
