SHOULD WE TURN left or right? A stranger might have a little trouble deciding which direction the arrow is pointing in St. Stephens precinct but local drivers know they better turn right as the road to the left is closed. The sign evidently was once repalnted to show a right rather than left turn but the paint has started to peal, reveallng the directional quandry. Express Photo Nearly 250 Nuckolls County members of the Democratic party gathered in Nelson Monday evening for the party's annual fund raising dinner. Featured speakers for the affair included Senator Gary Anderson of Axtel, National Committeewoman Frances Obmstede of Guide Rock, former Senator Wayne Ziebarth of Wilcox and State Engineer Thomas Doyle. Hess Dyas served as master of ceremonies. Mrs. Ohmstede reminded the party members that last year she was busy telling why Richard Nixon should be im- peached rather than re-elected and now others agree with her. She criticized Senators Hruska and Curtis for their staunch support of President Nixon and said she couldn't help but wonder what they had received from I'll, the oil company's and the Committee to Re-Elect the president. In view of the current energy crisis, she was critical of President Nixon's extravagant use of fuel. According to her figures, one trip to the Western White House, requires 60,000 gallons of fuel. She said the travels of the President require The Superior City Council, in session Monday evening, issued a public plea for assistance in controlling the dumping of garbage in the two city dumps.

She stressed that both Harry Truman and Lyndon Johnson paid for the personal travels of their family, however, the Nixon family travels at government expense, even the family dog is taken by car to Camp David because he "doesn't like to ride in a helicopter." Wayne Ziebarth, a former state senator from the 37th district which included Nuckolls County, warned that the president's credibility gap has filtered to all levels of the government and the country is now in a serious crisis because of it. He said in challenging Rep. Dave Martin, he hoped to reverse the present backward movement and move the country forward with a positive approach rather ,than the current negative approach. State Engineer Thomas Doyle agreed with Ziebarth when he said the biggest job now facing government is to restore the faith and confidence of the people in the institutions of the country. He said transportation would be the issue of the 70's as the loss of the railroad branch lines without suitable transportation alternatives being provided was causing serious problems. He called for the creation of a state program to provide trans- portation alternatives. Agreeing with Gov. Exon, he criticized the different speed limits as proposed by President Nixon, saying they would in- crease the accident risk. Senator Anderson discussed three key points from the last legislative session. He said the attempt to shift control of ad- Sheriff Donald Squires to ex- pand the law enforcement program being conducted by the sheriff's office. Preliminary plans call for the addition of second deputy to the sheriff's department. With the addition of the deputy, the sheriff's office will begin regular night patrols of the towns in the county. Each town requesting the special patrol will pay a percentage of the deputy's salary based on the number of residents in the town. Bids have been accepted and Plans are currently being developed by the Nuckolls County commissioners and may be fined and the dump closed. The west dump is only for things such as tree limbs and building material. Paper and garbage may be dumped only in the south city dump. The south city dump, which is operated as a landfill, is located just east of the sewage treat- ment plant. For those residents who don't know where the south dump is located, the council explained it is reached by driving south on Hartley Street until the second set of railroad tracks are crossed then turn west and drive to the fence before making a left turn into the dump. In other action, the council approved the application to delete the requirement for calling for the developer to build sidewalks in all new subdivisions. However, the current sidewalk ordinances have not been changed and before the subdivision requirement is removed it must be written into an ordinance and the ordinance passed. A case of mistaken identity in Hampton Tuesday night ended up in a Shoot-out in which, O evening ministrative services from me governor was a Republican attempt to get at the Democrat governor. He criticized the school aid program for being a Republican program which failed to protect the interests of agriculture and property renters while giving unfair breaks to the large property owners. He said the Republican leadership presented no alternatives to Gov. Exon's budget even though they felt it wouldn't work. Consequently, it was approved with the desire to show up the governor. Nuckolls County Democratic party leaders include Bob Holting of Lawrence, chair- man; Mrs. Harry Harrington, Nelson, secretary; Herbert Pedersen, Hardy, treasurer and Mrs. Marie Sekora, Nelson, vice chairman. the sheriff's office will soon be receiving a 1974 Ford patrol car which will be used by all members of the department. Prior to the purchase of the car, each officer furnished his own car and was reimbursed for his mileage by the county. According to an ad- vertisement elsewhere in this issue of The Express, the new deputy must be at least 21 years old and either have had or be willing to take 120 hours of law enforcement training at the Grand Island Training Center. @ on concern railroad Do you know where your children are playing? Railroad officials report it is becoming increasingly common to find youngsters, some as young as seven or eight, playing in the train yards here. The youngsters are playing in and around the cars and have been fooling with "the switches. So far there haven't been any injuries or derailments but the railroads expect that if the practice isn't stopped someone with one hand while he held a tobogan in the other hand. Because of his size, his feet didn't even reach the stirup of the car. The Superior Police Department has increased the patrol of the yards and if the youngsters don't quit playing in the yards, railroad officials indicate they will request the assistance of the railroad detectives. will be hurt and railroad property damaged.
