IMion tho Suthorland high school
basketball foam enmo up to North
Platte and dofoatcd the North Platto
team they said It was because tho
locals had not had any practice and
that It was n practlco game. A week
or two later tho North Platto boys
wont to Sutherland and woro defeated
again and It was harder to find an
alibi, Lincoln high came along and
doreatcd North Platto last Saturday
night and tho fans said It was becauso
Lincoln was such a big town. Then
Monday night tho Sutherland boys do
foatcd that big town team from Lin
coln and it has boon dawning on
tho local basket ball fellows that they
mny ho all wrong and that Sutherland
has a real team of huskios which is
entitled to It's shnn. of victories and
that the size of tho town doos not
crm t. Thoy aro remembering that
tho stnto champions of Nebraska last
year camo from tho littlo town of
Sutton. Tho result of tho wholo thing
Is a conviction that pro-season games
arc likely to bo uncortain to Lincoln
no well as to North Platto and that
Sutherland is lined up to mako a re
cord of wlflch wo may all bo proud.
According to nowspapor roports giv
en out from the offlco of tho Stato
Superintendent of Public Instruction
of Nebraska, Lincoln , county rural
schoolB received moro money from
tho state aid fund than any other
county In tho stato. Thirty-eight school
districts 1n this county Bhared In tho
distribution of $8,240.00. This Is from
a total of $35,008.00 which was appro
priated by tho last legislature to aid
tho weak school districts of Nobraska.
Whllo this Is comparatively a large
sum, It Is not any moro than this
county desorvos. Brown county got
$0,048.00 for twenty four districts and
tho nroa of that county Is Just about
ono-fourth thnt of Lincoln county.
Tho fact Is that Lincoln county got
her sharo of this, money bbcau3o of
th- attention given tho mattdr by our
rotlrlng county superintendent, Mrs.
Alleen O. Cochran. To hor should tho
crodlt be given that thirty-eight school
districts havo beon nblo to hold mora
months of school becauso of this help
than thoy would havo boon nblo to
hold oven whon thoy hnd voted tho
limit of taxation 'upon themselves,
whloh Is ono of tho conditions which
must bo mot beforo any stato aid
can bt plvon.
A roport was handod to tho county
commissioners at tho last mooting
which doos not moan so much in It
self ns It tolls a story. Tho roport
was signed by E. II. Evans and Piatt
Whlto and covered tho year's business
of tho Soldlor'B Rollof fund. Tho total
on hand nt tho beginning of tho year
was $1708 and tho' balance nt tho closo
of tho year was $1430.07. Tho amount
received during tho year was $53.51.
This was from back taxes or similar
source of rovenuo. Tho fund has beon
raised by taxation for many years un
til during tho past two years whon no
lovy has boon made. Tho Soldier's
Relief fund was planned to help old
soldiers and their widows, nnd has
sorvod its purposo well in years past
but with tho diminishing ranks need
has become loss until now thoro seems
to bo enough money lri tho fund to
meet tho needs for somo timo to como.
Should thero bo a call for moro monoy
u lovy can bo made at any timo. Tho
roport was accoptod by tho commis
sioners and placed on file. Tho fund
is a county fund and was raised by 'a
lovy on all proporty in tho county
