A street meeting for Anne Martin, indt pendent candidate for the United States Senate wa< held in Yerington Wednesday evening. Dr. Mat garet Long, daughter of former Secretary of the Navy Long, who is driving Miss Martin over the state in her car, spoke briefly of the importance to tht whole country of having women in the Senate at this time. Miss Martin in her speech pointed out that it had been a real handicap to the government in its conduct of the war not to lv>ve women in ad ministrative position*. "An example,” she said, is the | Food Administration. The price of wheat was fixed, but other commod ities were left uncontrolled. Women, with their* experience in household economics would have seen that to prevent the profiteering that resulted in the case of corn and other wheat substitutes, other prices. would have U be fix -d also. Then t'orc was the case of the shipping program which was newly wrecked because while ! the government made all other nec j essary arrangements, they neglected : to provide homing facilities for the * working men. Women would natural ! ly have thought of this. ’ ’ Mis- Martin deck.ted that in her , platform she stands for support of the President and the government to win the war: for the welfare of wo nici. .:i •! children; for promotion of the interests of labor; for public own ership of public utilities ;.nd for the opening up of Nevada land in the in terest of the people as opposed to private monopoly. The land problem, she pointed out could he solved by further irrigation projects, by dividing up the big land holdings into small farms, and giving the small farmer equal privileges in the public range; and by greater fed era! aid to the nev. settle*s than has been given in the past. "We must also,” she declared," pre pare for the period of demobilization that will follow the war, and prevent wide spread unemployment pf the men who are set free from war industries who are *et tree from war industries; by providing farms for returning sol diers." •Miss .Martin came out Strongly iur state and national prohibition. "Ne vada has responded so well,’’ she said-, "to the Red Cross, Liberty Loan and Thrift Stamp campaigns, that I am sure we will put through prohibition as a patriotic measure. I believe in it now as a means of conserving food and man power, and as a permanent measure after the war.” Miss Martin has now completed her first tour of the State in the in* tcrests of her campaign. She has spoken in every county seat and many towns besides, an 1 formed committees of men and women to boost the cam paign in every county. During the past week she has spo ken in Virginia City, Mason, Blue stone, Thompson and Carson, as well as Yerington, and has visited with Dr. Long, most of the ranches in Lyon County. In Thompson Mrs. Catherine Christians will be in charge of work for the campaign, assisted by Mrs. J. B. Quick and Mrs. J. W. Stew art. In Ycrington Mrs. Bessie Mc Kay and Mrs. Lottie Bovard head the first and sefcomf precincts re spectively, an^Mrs. Paul Karaus>%as elected Secretary. o . CARD OP THANKS.

Mr. Sherman, in the employ of the United State*. government and sent out by Mr. Day, in charge of the United States shale oil experimental bureau, arrived in Elko some time ago for the purpose of completing arrange ments for the erection of a govern ment test plant on a section of Elko's shale bed:. The plant to be erect ed tinder Mr. Sherman’s supervision is one of a chain of test plants being put up all over the west wherever the shale deposits are extensive enough to warrant the expenditure. The plant to be installed at Elko will be an adaptation of the Scottish proves:. Mr. Sherman has recejrtly competed the construction of a ro tary screw process plant at Santa government officials to erect a dif Maria, Cal. It is the purpo>e of the ferent style process at each point in order to finally discover the method b-.-t fitted to extract the product in this country. The* plant will probably be built on a section of shale land adjoining the Catlia interests. The particular purpose of the gov ernment in erecting so many differ ent styles of plants is to discover the best process and to encourage the investment of private capital in the method which is found best adapted t» the needs of this country. Private capital has thus far been slow to take up the shale oil investment, and it is 1 in t^e hope that successful experi ments by government experts will 1 tend to stimulate the p.ivate product ion of -hale oil and its by-products that the United States is taking the initiative in this regard. In th» event that matters are sat isfactorily disposed of with reference to the location of the plant its erect ion wilfbegin at once and it is expect ed that it will he in operation within a very short time. Some SbO.tKH) will probably be expended in the building of the test plant. Smith Serves the Red Cross By T. J. EDMONDS, Director of Civilian Relief of the Potomac Divieien • L “Well," Mid Smith as he walked Into my office. “I've wound up all my business Interests.” “Wliut for?" I sajd as I rose to greet the man I bad known in my home city year* before. “So I could offer myaelf If I'm worth having. I’ve got to get Into the game. Anything useful and human. I’m ready for marching ordfra." "Worth having?" I echoed. "You'vs dropped like a God send. We’ve got the biggest man-sised Job you ever tlOMi You’re going straight with the Home Service. Something useful and human? Why, In a week this thing will be gripping you so that you It eat and sloop it I” n. The Home Service Section of a big Red Cross chapter was in session. As Smith and 1 arrived they wore discuss ing the problem of n ooldler's wife and ■lx children found living In two ten* meat rooms In a building that rad been condemned because of a leaky roof, mouldy door and lack of Are protection. They had sold most of their furniture piece by piece for current living ex penses. The children had no change of clothing. There was no Income and, be cause of the mother’s condition, no pos sibility of one, except the expected allot meut and allowance, which even when It came would not entirely meet the cost of living In the city. The Home Service worker had given a generous sum of money to meet the argent needs, and now the committee waa planning to rent better quarters, move the fatal ly, secure medical and nursing atten tion .for the woman, outAt them all with clothing and furniture and keep regularly in touch with the family !IL In Smith’s next case the* Rome Serv ice Section and the tuberculosis society pad arranged hospital care for a man discharged because of tuberculosis contracted “in the line of duty." Some attorney had told him he would get compensation for him on a Afty-Af ty basis, but the lawyer-member of the Home Service Section helped him All out the proper form which the Ked Cross office supplied and assured him that no discharged soldier or soldier's beneficiary should ovor pay for col lecllng either compensation or insur ance. IV. A member of the women's uniformed corps drove us In her machine out to a eninp where (here are tto.ouu men. Here we met the Bed Cross Home Service man. We dldni rake Ids lime —we Just watched him. One moment ha was helping a man to till out dupli cate allotment blanks; the next he was arguing the merits of Insuring to the limit; the next lie was wiring a Home Service Section to visit a man's family; next he was going with a boy who Jmd received a tragic telegram from home to see the commanding «m cer about a leave of absenae; then ha was speediag on bla way a poor fellow discharged because of permanent In jury; then we eaw him talking to a •oldier and a girl wlf«,at the hostess' house; and aa the shadows fell lie was closeted with a Worried chap, who was telling him about an impending mort gage foreclosure and an expected baby V. (Alter the same evening we saw bin stajid up In the Liberty theater and.

He paint ed homes made happier by Home Serv ice—told of friends for lighters' fami lies found by the Red Cross—pictured devoted Home Service workers fight ing the country's Unities this side the trenches. When be ended some fellow struck up “Keep the Home Fires Bunt ing H We were silent for ■ long while on the way home. Smith and I. Finally Smith broke out. "Can I do It? The sort of thing— caujp service, you call Itf Wliy. that's where I want to be—at the point of first contact with those living proh Ictus. Pershing was right when lie said, 'The thing most needful to the American fighting forces overseas Is anything and everything that will run tribute to the morale of the men in service.’ “Home Ser.lce—1 see It now— means morale*.

Millions are being expended ip all parts of the country for the Improve ment of the Lincoln Highway, the main road between the east and west through the country. The need of the nation is good roads, now more than fin peace times, because of the huge amount of freight being moved over the roads for long distances in motor trucks and the great number of pass engers traveling every day Tn passen ger carrying automobiles. “The government is encouraging the movement to improve the roads,” says a local dealer. "Here are some data received by us from the Lincoln Highway Association that tell in fig ures the amount of road work that is being done in this country along the big road. "In the face of labor shortage, high cost of material and other retarding influences, more work is to b'e com pleted upon the Lincoln Highway in 1918 than ever before. "Estimates compiled by officials of the Lincoln Highway Association in dicate that between $5,000,000 and $6, 000.000 will be spent in improvements upon the route from the Pennsylvan ia-Ohio line to the Pacific Coajrt. Roughly, these expenditures are to be a> follows; Ohio . $1,420,000 I ndiana . 425,000 Illinois . 1.745.000 Iowa ..' 500,000 Nebraska . 290,000 Utah .. 290,000 Nevada . i 58,000 California. 140,000 "Permanent all-weather construct ion will absorb $3,920,000 of this a mount. The sections of road so con structed will be mainly brick and con crete, with a small percentage of mac cadam. Gravelling grading and bridge work will take $858,IXX), while main tenance of the dirt sections of the Highway, sueli as draining grading and dragging, in the mid-western states of Iowa, Nebraska, Wyoming and Nevada, will cost $500.<XK1 in ad dition, at a conservative estimate. “The completion of the present year's program will break all previous records of Lincoln Highway improve ment.” — Ely Record. . A BIG MARINE.' With the American Forces in France, July— The biggest soldier in any of the allied forces now serv ing in France has been discovered. He is a U. S. Marine! His name is Q. M. Sergeant Pat Grealy. Grealy has always had the reputa tion of being a "whale of a man”, but it wasn’t until he got to dodging Boche shells in France that his fel low fighters fully realized just how big he is. The first time an “alert” was sound ed after his company got up front. Grealy made a dash for a dugout and got wedged tight in the. entrance. ,All efforts to get him out were of no avail, tyitil six former football stars in the company were called upon to “rush" him through. They had to enlarge the entrance before they could get him out. -uo CHURCH SERVICES. St. Joseph’s Catholic Church Mass on first Sunday of the month at 9:30 a. m. All other Sundays at 10:30 a. m.
