PACE FOUR .NEBRASKA STATE JOURNAL FRIDVY. MAY 14. 1943L Too early to determine if wheat is hurt It is entirely too early to make tn accurate estimate as to whether or not wheat in the Nebraska panhandle counties has been injured by the recent cold, agronomists at the University - of Nebraska college of agriculture stated Thursday. Temperatures in the panhandle dropped as low as 26 degrees within the past few days, and snow was reported. Quoting the statement by T. H. Alexander, Cheyenne county agricultural agent, that the wheat in Cheyenne county was 8 to 12 inches high, and that 90 percent of it was in "the boot" stage, Dr. K. S. Quisenberry, professor of agronomy at 4he college, said, "Wheat in the stages of growth mentioned by Alexander is susceptible to damage from cold, but unless it were absolutely frozen down, damage would not show up now. It is possible that some damage was done, but if so, it may not be apparent for weeks." Alexander flatly denied having , ( made a statement, previously attributed to him, that 90 percent of the wheat m the panhandle counties was killed by the frosts. Wheat seen Thursday between Sidney and Bridgeport looked normal, Alexander stated, but he also declared that any damage which might have been done would not be apparent now. Agricultural agents from several panhandle counties, in session Thursday at Bridgeport to help perfect plans for the farm labor program in the state, said that the cold was general in the panhandle and that little difference in the wheat could be detected at this time. They also were emphatic in declaring that it is too early to place a proper estimate on the effects of the cold weather in the western Nebraska wheat producing counties. Durr says Cox is biased member of FCC check group WASHINGTON. UP). Clifford J Durr, member of the federal communications commission, petitioned the house Thursday to disqualify Representative Eugene E Cox (d., Ga.) as a member of a special committee appointed to investigate the commission. Durr filed the petition with Speaker Rayburn and sent it along with, a memorandum and exhibits. Durr alleged first that Cox has a personal interest in the investigation because of owneishipp of stock in station WALB at Albany, Ga., which is involved in a proceeding now pending before the FCC, and second that prior to his appointment as chairman of the investigating committee he "had already prejudged and condemned the commission, its personnel and activities and had shown himself to be biased, prejudiced and lacking in the objectivity of mind requisite for a member of such committee."

Winterscheidt dad philosophy in fatherland CHICAGO. (UP). Severin Winterscheidt, New York, former press chief of the Friends of New Germany, testified in federal court Thursday that he had taken nazi jhilosophy in Germany prior to establishing the original bund school in America Winterscheidt, who testified at he citizenship trial of nine former German-American bund lead- :rs, said he took a six weeks' course at Hamburg before returning to the United States in 1936. The course, he said, dealt with the history and philosophy of the 'leadership principle." "We were taught that if one man is the leader in the politics of the state, that state would be victorious in all its aims," he said. It was taught that Hitler was the natural successor to Prince Arniin, Frederick the Great and Bismarck, and that theirs and Hitler's forms of government were the best. "We were taught that there is one leader, one race and one hil" Wmterscheidt said. "All Germans, it was held, belonged to one family, one state, and had one leader who was Hitler." Wmterscheidt said he was assigned to teach in the first bund school, established in New York, by Fritz Kuhn, former head of the movement m this country. This school, he said, was established at Franz Siegel's tavern on East 83rd street, New York and only bund officials were admitted. Wmterscheidt testified Wednesday that uniformed strong-arm squads of bundists were assigned to break up communist meetings. Higgins awarded Creighton degree OMAHA. OP).

Valuable express package lost May 3 still missing V Authorities are still searching for a lost express package containing papers of considerable value to Lincoln and Omaha banks and their customers but of no value to anyone else. The package was receipted for at the railway express office on P st., according to information available, but could not be fo^nd after the express messengar had driven to the Rock Island depot to deliver that and other packages to a Rock Island train. The loss occurred May 3. It is said among the papers were many Burlington paychecks cashed by Lincoln merchants and later deposited in Lincoln banks. There were other checks and papers, none of them negotiable, from Lincoln to Omaha banks. The loss includes papers, it is said, from all three of the Lincoln downtown banks. The package contained no other property than papers being transferred from Lincoln to Omaha banks. The loss, it is said, was discovered when the express messenger on the Rock Island train did not receive the package and the express driver who was supposed to carry the package failed to deliver it. How or wher* the package was lost those concerned were unable to say. A search for it along the route taken by the express delivery truck between the two depots did not reveal a trace of it. Want ads appearing in newspapers have offered a reward for the return of the package. The cashier of one of the banks said the loss to his bank would be only in work of duplicating checks. The bank has ''reoordaks" on record films of some of the checks, which makes duplicating simple. Dupli- cation is already in process pending recovery of the lost package.. In the meantime, however, anyone who has seen the lost article should report it to Railway Express. r* _S.__ Lincoln's most complete rental directory is in this paper. Turn to the Want Ads.
