THE PIOGHE .RECORD
ESTABLISHED SEPT. 17, 1870. FIFTH VICTORY 'jElsie Culvenvell LIBERTY LOAN: Is Laidto Rest 1'y Mr. Helen T. Hclfi.nl, Wonr.'iTu Nevada Liberty lAtnn tlialnnnn. Can you Nevada women ever for get the early day ot the war? How many evenings you caught the sound of martial music and hurried to Join the crowd that followed "our boys" as they marched to the station, their first milestone on the Jour.iey "over there." Don't you recall how you wiped your eyes, or choked a bit and said to the one standing next: "There goes the flower of our town?'" Then you went back home, and when a woman you had known al ways asked you to work for the Second 'Liberty loan, you said of Mrs. Helen T. Bel ford. course you would if your country wanted you; and you did, and your country went over the top the first day. And then don't you recall putting a big cloak over your house dress and hurrying downto read the bulle tin boards during the dark, dark days In March when the Hun was advancing in a bloody line on PariB? Then the Third Liberty loan and the men's committee compli mented the women on their work, and again, despite the croakers who said, "Our country won't stand for the drain," your country did stand for it and went over the top. Then the speeding up stories .that came from Washington. How bur own United States was doing far more than she promised. . Ho.w many "more' "men "we liad in June than we had contracted to have. ' Then the turning of the tide in July and our pride in the American boys as they rolled back the Hun. Your women's committee began the work for the fourth loan with high hopes and beating hearts and the country literally poured out its wealth until the government coffers overflowed. Don't you remember waking up from a sound sleep and hearing a crash and a din of whistles as of bedlam let loose'? And you knew the armistice was signed and the greatest war in all history was practically over. You couldn't grasp the fact at first, so long had you thought in terms of war, and then it began to dawn upon you that your boy could come home because it was over, over mere. And now, all you women of Ne vada who have so nobly done your part are going to be asked by your government to do this last big thing and help put over the Victory Liber ty loan. Do you remember closing your eyes In silent prayer when, the Min ute Men told you that this war could not end before 1920 at the earliest? And now the whole world knows why Germany asked for an armis tice. She could not hold out and eho knew It against the American men and guns, airplanes and sup plies going over to the shores of France In a steady stream. It costs money to speed up as our government did last March, but how many thousand American lives it saved no one can. say. Does any woman want anything further than this to nerve her to a supreme effort for the Voctory Liber ty loan?

' in Los Angeles last Monday, March 17, came as a shock to the wha community, although she had been 111 for several months and her recov ery was doubtful. She had had vul vular leakage ot the heart for years and when she contracted influenza about four months ago was unable to combat it owing to the weakened condition of her heart. Mr. Culver well took his wife to Los Angeles some time ago in the hope that ihej lower altitude would benefit her, but while she rallied at times she was unable to regain the strength neces sary to overcome the disease. She expired on her twenty-seventh birth day. Mrs. Culverwell was the Daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Price and was born in Eureka, Utah, March 17, 1892, coming to Ploche with her parents In 1896 when but 4 years old. She spent her girlhood in Pl oche and was married to William Culverwell December 29, 1809, the family moving to Caliente about two years ago. The deceased was educated In the public schools of Pioche and leaves many friends throughout the county who are deeply grieved at her un timely departure. Her passing is rendered the more sad from the fact that she leaves a little 4-year-old daughter, Louise, who will miss the love of a devoted mother. Besides her husbund and daughter she is survived by her father, James Price of Pioche; two sisters, Mrs. Dan J. Ronnow of Pariaca and Mrs, Mary Ann Stephenson of Caliente, and three brothers, Edwin, James and John- Price. Mrs. Culverwell was baptized in the Mormon church and was a mem ber of the local Rebekah lodge. Funeral services were held yester day in the Sunday School building in Pioche, interment being made in the Odd Fellows and Masons' ceme tery. The Rebekah lodge took the remains in charge upon arrival on the train from Los Angeles and con ducted the obsequies at the grave, Arthur V. Lee of Panaca delivering the address at the hall. Several ap propriate selections were rendered by the choir and Mrs. D. R. Hartman sans an impressive solo. The floral decorat ions were elaborate, the cas ket being covered with flowers and set pieces. During the progress of the funeral all activities in Pioche were prac tically suspended that all might at tend the services, thus attesting the high "esteem in which the deceased was held. The hall was packedto Btfitotfatldn laftftt tmuiber were unable to gain admittance.

Scott' informed the committee that it would be necessary to hold three elections before final incor poration, and that the main expense would be the cost of publishing the charter.

Twelve is the limit but the shorter the better de clares the Slogan Editor, who -adds We want a stirring battle cry that will express the spirit, of the country in floating this last loan, Here are a few of the thousands that have been submitted: "Victory Bonds Bind Victory."

We wish to express our heartfelt gratitude to friends in Lincoln coun ty for their many words and acts of kindness in this our sad hour of bereavement; and especially do we wish to thank the Rebekah lodge of Pioche for all they have done.

' Secretary Lane Continues Work Although congress adjourned with out bringing to a vote the proposed legislation which, it enacted into law, would have made It possible tacthe department of thaOnltirlor to begin-work immediately on the con struction of soldier settlements and provide work and homes for thous ands of our returned soldiers, sailors and marines on reclaimed land, the fact that the bill was favorably re ported in both the house and senate and the nationwide approval of the plan as evidenced by the hundreds of letters of endorsement received daily by the department, have led Secre tary Lane to take the stand that there Is every reason to believe that a similar bill will be favorably con sidered at the coming special session of congress. He is accordingly con tinuing the preliminary work, of investigation as far as the limited funds at his disposal will permit, and is also endeavoring to ascertain for the information of congress the atti tude toward the plan of as many men in the service as he is able to reach through the distribution ot questlon aires at the various camps and naval stations throughout the country. Secretary Lane 1b In thorough ac cord with Congressman Taylor of Colorado, the author of the bill intro duced at the last session of cougress for putting the soldier-settlement plan into effect, who said; ' I can only say to the house and to the country, and to the many thousands of our splendid boys who will be- Borely disappointed by this failure ot the house to puss this bill or act upon this subject, that I will reintroduce the bill on the opening day of the next session of congress and push the measure with all the energy that I posesa, and 1 sincerely hope and believe that it will be speedily enacted into law. And I also hope that instead of the appro priation being $100,000,000, it ma. be five times that amount; because' even then we will not, in proportion to our wealth and resources, be doing nearly as much for our returning sol diers as is being done by Canada, Australia and all other Ehglish- speaking countries. I am not only confident that this measure will be adopted, but I firmly believe it will go 'down in history as one of the great constructive policies of -our country." Many of-the state legislatures have not met recently, but a large number of the states have- already taken action by appropriate legislation or by the appointment of committees to cooperate with the federal govern ment In connection with the soddler settlernent plan of the department.

Secretary Lane of the department of the interior says: . "If congress will appropriate the relatively small sum which I have asked for the construction of soldier-settlements In every state in the Union, I can offer Jobs almost Immediately to 100,000 ot our re turned fighting men, thus helping to stem the tide of industrial unrest predicted by Secretary Wilson; pro vide farm homes for 25,000 of these men, thus" mitigating the evils of tenantry; and bring Into cultivation 1,500,000 acres of at present unpro ductive land, thus helping to make up the deficiency in the growth of cultivated land as compared with the rate ot growth of our population.
