J. E. Mott, whose leg was broken
in an automobile accident about a
month ago. has sufficiently recovered
to be able to be removed to his home
near Powell. Mrs. Mott, who has
been with her husband since the ac
cident, accompanied him home. Mr.
Mott was foreman of the crew that
was repairing and rebuilding the
government telephone line in the
canyon. While making his last trip
of inspection an automobile ran into
the cart in which he was riding
throwing Mr. Mott out and breaking
his leg. Since that time he has been
at the Claude Johnson home in Cody
where he was brought immediately
after the accident.
As soon as it seemed reasonably
certain that the Good Roads bill
would pass. Congressman Mondell at
once started negotiations with the
various Department heads here, with
a view of presenting Wyoming's
claims among the very first. This
work is now well under way, and the
various boards of county commiss
ioners and others are busy collecting
the necessary data and doing other
preliminary work necessary to tak
ing advantage of the law. It is
safe to say that Wyoming will be
one of the first states in the Union to
benefit from the good roads legisla
tion, through the industry of bur del
egation in Congress.

Hog receipts for Monday were
light, some eightv-five loads, or 5,800

Wisdom And Skill
Plus Common Sense
Waterloo, a village of some four
hundred inhabitants, is situated in the
fertile bottom lands, lying between :
the Elkhorn and Platte Rivers, in!
Douglas County, Nebraska; on the Un j
ion Pacific railway, and the Lincoln i
Highway, about twenty miles west of
Although Waterloo has a small pop
ulation, it has a large reputation, for
here are located the interests of the
J. C. Robinson Seed Co., and C. P.
Coy & Son, pioneers in vine seed and
seed corn production in Nebraska.
World’s Largest Seed Corn Center
Waterloo has been for years, with
out rival in the volume of seed corn
shipments; in fact, it is the world’s
largest seed corn center. For years
it was the center of vine seed pro
duction, some years shipping as much
as four-fifths of all the vine seeds
grown in the United States.
In the fall, when the crop movement
begins, the seven large warehouses,
equipped with special machinery, and
men expert in their lines, become ver- 1
itable beehives of industry. Each
one is filled and emptied, many times,
in the work of beginning the distri
bution of the large part of the world’s
seed supply for another season.
But outside of these big industries.
Waterloo has interests social and com
mercial, just the same as all the other
small towns, it also has aspirations
and problems.
How the Club Originated
One day last July, three men, liv
ing in our village, casually fell into
conversation along general lines, but
finally drifted onto the subject of co
operative organizations for commu
nity betterment.
At this point the conversation ceas
ed to be casual and became animated.
Here was a subject of vast interest to
these three men, and to all thinking
men, the world over. All men who
are right thinking want the commu
nity, in which they live, a right com
munity. And every right thinking
man has ideas he would like to see
Worked out, to make his community
come a step nearer his ideal.
But, no man, alone, can reform a
people. It takes a merged unit of all
the constructive thought and action
therein. And, a good deal of the ac
cent should be placed on the action,
for, as you know,
“Wisdom iu knowing what to do.”
"Skill is knowing how to do it.”
“Common sense is DOING it.”
Now these three men seemed to
possess some of the latter requisite,
for they “got busy.” It is not ne
cessary to have a whole community
together to start a development move
ment. A few men can start. Even
three men, with “stick-to-it-iveness”
and determination are enough to start
the move, if there are not more avail
Thought Brought Action
These three went into the subject
thoroughly and decided that an or
ganized effort for community devel
opment and betterment was needed in
Waterloo, and needed at once. They
obtained the interest of two more
men in the matter, and the five met
in several informal conferences, and
worked out a plan. Much thought
was given to every detail of the work,
and the results have more than repaid
the effort.
The first thing decided at the con
ferences was, that each of the five
must “stay put,” and he dependable to
the club. That each must decide to
drag along one of the rest, who were
inclined to hang back in the traces,
and never say fail.
The First Meeting
To get the men of the community
to an organization meeting, so that
something could be accomplished, a
letter was written to about fifty re
presentative men, inviting them to a
meeting, and mentioning the fact that
there would he a light lunch and some
thing to smoke.
The five men furnished the banquet,
and talk about preparedness, there
was a “primed” speaker for the even-
I ing, Jno. L. McCaque, president of the
j Omaha Commercial Club, and several
| "warned” ones, all favored the move
! ment to the limit. There was a per
: son to suggest the name “Community
' Club of Waterloo” at the opportune
time. There were printed application
blanks for membership in this club,
with the fee stipulated, and even plen
ty of pencils to go around.
A 100 Per Cent Result
The weather was against us, and on
ly twenty-six came to the banquet,
but when the evening was over, there
were twenty-six applications for mem
bership. This number has since been
raised to fifty. An interesting fact
in this connection is, that the fee stip
ulated on the application blanks was
a maximum of ten dollars, or a mini
mum of five dollars per annum, pay
able in advance, and that several far
mers have paid the maximum.
Imaginary “Dead-Line* Removed
I Care was taken in the wording of
the letter of invitation and in all lit
erature and addresses, to eliminate
any reference to the least difference
existing between the farmer and the
town resident. The imaginary “dead
| line” at the city limits, against the
farmer, was left out entirely. The
farmer was given to understand that,
in this matter, he was just as import
ant as the best business man in the
town; that each was absolutely inter
dependent upon the other; that with
out the farmer the town would cease
to exist; and without the town the
prosperity and markets of the farmer
would depreciate to such an extent
that any kind of an investment in the
community, would be a poor business
Work on Broad Basis
The scope of work for the club, as
outlined in their constitution and by
laws, is broad. It proposes to create
a spirit of brotherhood among all in
terested in building uptheir community
and to put into operation such plans
as will accomplish genera! improve
ment and development. Any person
interested in these things is eligible
to membership.
The officers of the club are. pres
ident, vice president, secretary-treas
urer, and four directors. These off
icers constitute the executive board,
which board has discretionary powers
in all matters pretaining to the club.
Seven Standing Committees
There arc seven standing commit
tees: Good roads, publicity, commu
nity improvement, membership, com
merce and trade, entertainment and
employment. The first consists of
five members, scatered over the com
munity, and all the rest, three each,
except the last, which has one member
Four farmers occupy berths on these
standing committees, and three of
the four directors are farmers.
Some Tangible Results
The first work taken up by the club,
was the construction of a dyke to
prevent the Elkhorn River from in
undating the town. The dyke is com
plete and has already demonstrated
its usefulness in holding back the
last of numerous floods which have oc
curred along the Elkhorn this season.
Our section of the Lincoln Highway
has been surfaced with clay in prep
aration for pavement.
The entertainment committee have
secured an agricultural short course
for the winter, and are working out
other lines of entertainment. The
plan is for the club to contract for
the talent, get them here, and see
that they are paid, and charge the
public only a reasonable admission
As fast as the membership commit
tee can, they are getting around with
a personal invitation to join the club
or at least to attend one of the regu
lar monthly meetings, which are
Then, the editor of the Waterloo
Gazette, was given an honorary mem
bership and a berth on the publicity
committee. The hint was so evident
and he is possessed of so much life
that he is devoting a good deal of
his space to club literature.
The territory contiguous to Water
loo, is limited, on account of the
close proximity of neighboring towns,
so the present plan of the club is to get
and keep the trade that naturally be
longs to the town. Later as the
membership increases, it may be pos
sible to reach out farther.
The Community Improvement Com
mittee are working on a project to
establish a rest room for the farmers
and their wives. Next spring a
band stand will be erected and light
ed, so that the local band can give
weekly band concerts, rain or shine.
The town has just installed an e
lectric lighting system, and in honor
of this event, the club worked up a
co-operative bargain day and celebra
tion. A very successful day, was the
verdict, and if their presence in town
/er'iies the fact, it must be so, as
there was certainly a big turnout.
Everybody Enthusiastic
The people, farmers and all, are
for the club. No adverse criticism
has been heard, and every farmer
who had the proposition explained to
him, says it is just the thing. The
spirit of co-operation among all class
es is very evident. It is a great
