It is on the saaie section and approximately a mile from the one obtained by Mr. Butts Jan. 31. The water began to flow Tuesday but the storm came up and hindered (he work so that Mr. Butts did not go out again until Thursday when he capped it three feet above ground. The well is 90 feet, 9 inches deep while the first one was 70 feet deep. A good How of water was obtained at each. A side pipe was attached to the cap to carry the water away from the vicinity of the well and it will eventually reach a creek some distance away.

Charles Home Music Contest Father Sheehy Praises Pius VII as Great Leader of Church "Pope Pius XII is sufficiently trong with his own people to ead them from the extremities of aziism and in less than 10 years ou'H see the rupture of the ;ome-Berlin axis," declared Fath- r Maurice Sheehy, head of the epartment of religion of Catholic niversity at Washington, D. C*, iturd ay. Father Sheehy, in the city as elebrant at the funeral of his rother, John C. Sheehy, also said hat the pope-will give the Cath- lic church a streamlined organi- ation. Father Sheehy met the pope, at hat time Cardinal Pacelli, when e visited the United States about year ago. He was the first car- inal to make a plane trip across lis country, "Pope Pius XII knows this ountry like a book, he knows its eoples well," said Father Sheehy. Man of Action "The pope is a man of great decision and action. I should be very much surprised if he does not re- urn to this country. The choice f Cardinal Pacelli as pope is most Ignificant at this time, since he /as more closely identified with ius XI than anyone else. The se- ection of the name Pius indicates ~iat he will undoubtedly carry on te policies of his predecessor, 'ius XI, one of the greatest* opes of all time." "It is most unusual to choose a ope on the third ballot, and this asn't been done in several cen- uries, but Cardinal Pacelli was le man destined to be the pope.~ ourtesy votes are usually awarded IB older cardinals, but it is evi- ent that the attitude of the German newspapers had expedited the roceedings. "The selection of this pope can e construed as an assertion of the ollege of cardinals that it is inde- endent of nazi domination-" Here Father Sheehy denied ve- emently the Quentin Reynolds fatement in Collier's recently that Hitler was delaying his next move ntil a pope with fascist or nazi eanings would be elected. "There isn't one in the college of 2 cardinals who is a nazi," as-, erted Father Sheehy. Speaks Many Languages The new pope, he said, is a man f deep spirituality, very ascetic. Vhen Father Sheehy had break- ast with him, the former Cardinal D acelli only had a hard roll and a glass of water. The local visitor vas most impressed by the tact that, although Pope Pius XII had studied English only three months, IB was able to speak for 25 minutes without a script as he gave an address in this country. The pope can speak most any language. "War in Europe is very doubt- ul at this time. Mussolini is jeal- Jus oE Hitler, and doesn't like be- ng called Hitler's mouthpiece. iven the associates of il duce are eported to call him that. Also, here is no innate sympathy be- ween the German and Italian eople. In recently interviewing Foreign Minister Oswalda Aranha of Brazil on the radio, I asked him f the German-Italian relations in lis country, and he replied that there is no love lost between the million of each nationality resid- ng there. "Mussolini's anti-Semitic campaign which aped that of Hitler was halted by Pius XI, who wrote urn protesting against it Musso- ini "pulled in his horns quite a it upon receiving the letter from he pope. {The visitor here added hat he speaks on the Columbia Broadcasting System on March 14 on the subject, "The Pope and mti-Semitism") Beat Down Helpless "Demagogs always have this in common -- they beat down the lelpless minorities to arouse their emotional following. I spoke with a foreign ambassador who arrived from Rome two weeks ago and he told me that Mussolini is rapidly losing the support of the Italians. "This is due primarily to the fact that his family is putting 'on grandiose airs. This is resented by the common people of Italy who gave Mussolini their support because they felt he was one o them, and would help them," hi stated. The recent nationwide broad cast condemning religious perse cution, and participated in b; church and state dignitaries, wa., organized by Father Sheehy. "We should find room for at least 25,000 refugees in this country," he said. Father Sheehy and Bishop Ryan of Omaha returned Feb. 1 from a good will tour of South America, and during that trip-which was under graces of the state department--decided that that continent was the best possibility for refugees. "In South America a high foreign diplomat asked me the reason for my interest in finding a haven for Jewish refugees. I replied that -We're good American Catholics and follow the leadership of the pope, who tells us we are really spiritual Semites and mentally Christians, and that the Christian religion is set against a background of Jewish religion.' Lies Hope of Peace 'In South America also lies our hope for peace in the western hemisphere. We have been very remiss in this country, in not cultivating that continent It you go to a vacation, you think of every country but South America, when Rio de Janeiro is the most beautiful city in the world. The peace and security of this hemisphere depends on our relations with South America, a vast, fertile unexplored area. Brazil alone, for example, would like to have a Two CLEAR LAKE--The home music contest will be held at the high school Tuesday evening, March 8, beginning at 7 o'clock according to an announcement by John Kopecky, director o£ instrumental music.

All instrumental 5 le % music students will participate in the contest which is held to determine who will represent the school in the sub-district contest to be held at Clear Lake March 31 and April 1. The program is open to the public. FATHER MAURICE SIIEEUY cultivate its land--providing they came with the proper agricultural knowledge. "Brazil, with a population of 48 millions, could provide ample room for 250,000,000 'persons, if its natural resources were properly developed. Its government will give land away to people for cultivation. Agriculturists and professional people are welcomed with outstretched hands. "Refugees, however, are largely from the city, and lack the j-ural knowledge essential for settlement in these agricultural lands. We flew over Venezuela and for hours and hours saw nothing but fertile lands. The people were concentrating on making money from the 'black gold'--oil--and hadn't bothered to make use of their wealth of agricultural resources. Relations Improved "Lately, however, there has been a tremendous improvement in relations, an improvement which is counteracting to a degree the propaganda of the German gov irnment. We are inclined to over- istimate the quantity and underestimate the quality of this propaganda. Nevertheless, if the United States insists on gratuitously insulting those countries, we shaK force them into an alliance with Germany." "There's a good old European custom of not paying bills, so why shouldn't we turn more of our trade to South America?" asked Father Sheehy.
