The same condition existed in other communities and a tremendous amount has been sent to market. So far this has not affected the price adversely and producers are getting nearly five times as much for the grain as they did at the time of the low last March. Effects of the new deal are still more verbal than actual in this part of the country for the majority of the people. Nevertheless prospects for better times this fall are strong and optimism is reasonable. Now that the Italian air armada has reached this country, we can expect William Randolph Hearst to predict daily air Talds from Europe, This is Here retailers generally would welcome the act. armada took more time to fly over than the ordinarily fast ocean liner uses, and the armada was helpless after it reached this country. the Leader celebrates this week its 69th anniversary. Comparatively young when put beside more venerable Institutions, The Leader yet lays claim to being the oldest business in this community. The development of this community In the years since the birth of The Leader has been truly remarkable. From almost open prairie has sprung a beautiful .well equipped town making as desirable a place of residence as one could wish for. Every development, every building, every bit of paving, every community project has come from the enterprise and initiative of the high type of citlxenry which populates the community. More than natural resources, favorable climate or location, a town must have good people. Newspaper work in a community of this type is always interesting. Even in the business discouragements of the past few years there has been a compensation gained from being associated with The Leader which can not be measured in the ordinary medium of exchange.

For instance merchandising in this country, could be done much easier, at Just as much convenience to the customer and for a considerably less cost than at present. One great way to do this would be by shortening the business hours and keeping them that way not more than six days a week. Few merchandising establishments need more than 48 hours a week to care for the business done. Yet all must remain open for from 12 to 17 hours daily and now the common custom is to be open also , on Sunday mornings. This condition is difficult to handle. Only a few want to keep such long hours and others must follow these few. Should the government, under the provisions of the industrial recovery bill, choose to regulate the hours of business for retail establishments we be. able interest and eni ment. Tabor, Randolph. Riverton, and Farragut are each providing one evening's program to be shown in each of the communities.

Mr. Hurst, we left the mowing of the lawn, although at the time it was so brown and bare it scarcely seemed possible there would be anything to mow. Cora and wheat in eastern Nebraska look about as in Iowa. Western Nebraska and eastern Colorado have poor wheat. Too dry all winter but an abundance of rain during April, May, and June — in fact a water spout last Saturday at Sedgwlck —but no damage to our 500 acres of corn which is looking fine and we are hoping it will continue so and we will get Roosevelt prices which will put us on our feet again, which seemed impossible with corn at 12 and 13 cents. After leaving Omaha the Lin* coin highway Is paved most of the way-—Just a few short stretches of gravel — and we had a fine trip in spite of the heat. Miss Bouren Is an excellent driver and we had no occasion for back seat driving. We will stay here a few days as we must not go to higher altitude in the start, then on to Empire to the Stark ranch where we will soon be catching the mountain trout Will eat a few for you-by proxy. Truly, C. E. Eacrett.

In addition to those deprived of licenses there are many more who have lost one or more tickets from the license.
