Subscriptions and Pledges Still
Coming In On Every Mail
Eureka County did not go “over
the top” as quickly on this drive as
she has done on other war move
ments, and it is probably due to the
fact that personal solicitation has
been practically abandoned, owing
to the fear of spreading sickness.
The appeal to the citizens by mail and
through the Sentinel has met with a
gratifying response, but not enough
has been raised to meet the quota.
Up to Friday noon, $923 has been
collected or pledged and our quota is
$1570. The time for us to raise the
money has been extended and every
one who has not already sent a sub
scription is asked to do so as quickly
as possible.
The Victory Boys have pledged
more than double their quota; and
the Victory Girls have gone even
higher, owing to the fact that there
are more girls eligible to member

Big Tractor and County Grader Put
Old Pritchard Grade in Condition
That Will Permit Travel Over It Dur
ing Moat Winter Montba
The Board of County Commission
ers this week completed a new piece
of roadwork badly needed on the
Pinto summit which will eliminate
what has been in the past one of the
worst pieces of Winter road in this
section of the country.
Beginning at the top of the sum
mit and going south, using the old
Pritchard grade, the new road fol
lows the high ground and the sunny
side of the hill for about two miles,
coming into the old' road about half
a mile above the Evans place; follow
ing that and detouring again for
about three-quarters of a mile at the
Evans place, and then taking the
road out here again on to the old
grade and up on to high ground.
The Commissioners are also having
the old Pritchard grade repaired on
the Eureka side of Pinto summit, and
with these two pieces of new road
construction, Pinto summit will be
passable to traffic practically the year
This work was done with Russell
& Minoletti’s tractor and the county
grader and the record time in which
the work was completed proves the
efficiency of these machines.
Talks Before Women’s Civic
League At Reno of Educa
tional Results of Cam
“We feel that we waged a victor
ious campaign,” said Miss Anne Mar
tin in discussing her candidacy for the
U. S. Senate at a meeting of the Neva
da Women’sCivic League held at State
headquarters in Reno last Tuesday.
“We are fighting to establish the
right of women to direct participa
tion in government,” Miss Martin
continued. “To do this an educa
tional campaign was necessary. We
have carried such a campaign into
every precinct of the State.
“Three other candidates were in
the field, all supported by party or
ganizations. Although I was handi
capped because I ran as an Indepen
dent without any party organization
back of me and was the first woman
senatorial candidate, I succeeded in
winning a vote of nearly five thous
and of th* twentv-five thousand cast
Nearly one-fifth of the voters of the
State put aside prejudice and party
affiliations and voted for me. I ran
ahead of my Republican opponent
backed by the full power of his party
organization in White Pine and Clark
Counties and was just one vote be
hind him in Churchill County.
“The results we secured are most
encouraging and lay a splendid foun
dation for victory later on.”—Advt.

County Health Officer Makes It
Plain That Desperate Chanees
Are Being Taken Here Through
Lack of Proper Restrictions
Being Observed
While new cases of influenza
are reported from all nearby sections
of this portion of the State, Eureka
has thus far escaped without a case.
Word has been received that those
attacked with the disease in the north
end of the county, with the exception
of George Shultes whose death at
Beowawe was reported Wednesday,
are now on the way to recovery.
Two section hands were taken down
with the disease at Palisade the first
of the week, but no other new cases
in the county have been reported.
The cases in the vicinity of Tonkin
are doing nicely.
From Hamilton where nearly the
whole community were afflicted, only
one death has occurred and all are
reported as fast recovering.
The last Reveille announced twelve
cases in Austin, but no fatalities.
At Ely, McGill, Ruth and Kimber
ley the disease has reached an alarm
ing condition, several hundred are
said to be afflicted, with the physi
cians and nurses unable to handle
the situation. It has been necessary
to turn the school houses at Ely and
Ruth into hospitals, and various kinds
of conveyances have had to be used
in burying the dead.
At Tonopah, when the disease was
thought to be in check, numerous
new cases appeared and of a more
violent nature, and a large number
in that section are now ill.
At the weekly meeting of the
Eureka County Council of Defense
held Thursday evening the influenza
situation in general was taken up
and discussed. Dr. Brennen, the
County Health Officer, stated that in
view of the fact that people of Eu
reka were again congregating in sa
loons and at other places and paying
no attention to the restriction against
thus assembling, he believed the ban
should be removed from all, and
that those attending the schools and
moving pictures would be little less
exposed than they are now under
existing conditions. He emphatical
ly declared, however, his warning of
precaution regarding means of pre
vention must be heeded if the dis
ease is kept out of Eureka, and that
the people could not afford to be
careless and take a chance with the
grave outlook.
The joint board of trustees of the
of the Eureka schools held a meeting
yesterday afternoon and, notwith
standing the Health Officer’s permis
sion to re-open the schools, believed
they voiced the sentiment of the par
ents and people in deciding to keep
the schools closed for at least an
The management of the Eureka
Theatre informs the Sentinel that
it is undecided yet as to when the
theatre will be re-opened and the
moving picture shows resumed.
