Undoubtedly the Sears, Roe- buck and Company catalogue (which came out once a year) was a big competitor in the home town, with its 200 pages full of "something for every- one; ° . For children there were toy soldiers, iron trains, slate boards, play sewing machines, china tea sets, rubber tipped arrows and toy ice wagons. For grownups there were $7.85 Genuine Stradivarius vie- lins, autoharps, pocket watches, and sterling silver tea sets. The fin catalogue weighting four pounds was accompanied by a note asking the recipient to send 15 cents to cover part of the 27 cent postage bill! Many hours have gone into decorating the Nuckolls County Museum with'Christmas magic.' Find time to visit and note the many decorated trees on display. Extended hours will be 2:00- 5:00 on Thursdays, 2:00-7:00 on Saturdays, and regular 1:30-5:00 on Sundays• Superior pastor serves four years in Somalia (Byron,) (Continued from Pige IA) acllicve this as well as the Brit- dresses and went around in high pitch voices mourning. The men were embarrassed for the women were announcing their funerals in advance. The men, immediately, developed snd agreed to a solid peace treaty within the two clans of the north. Since the treaty, 25 couples have married between the dam. The north is said to be concerned about the intervention by U•S. troops, they don't want to be forced to reunite with the south. Prather was loaned by World Concern to the United Nations to try to help re-organize a camp in the north. "The north was disap- pointed in the level of education of the south, when the two coun- tries re-united. The British as a mandOtectorate went beyond the U.N. ate and better prepared the north for independence in a mod- em world. Italy was suppose to prepare the south, but didn't ish." As for the current actiOn taken by our government, Prattler said, "U.S. Intervention will probably save thousands of persons who would have died of starvation. Without disarming the clams and giving Somalia a breather, it will be no more than a band-aid opera- tion. It is hard for me to speak against anything that will help the Somalia people, because I really like these people." Prather said, "If enough are interested, I would be willing to give a talk on Somalia." When Prather arrived in Soma- lia, it was against government policy for him to learn the lan- guage. Those coming into the country had to rely on translators. This allowed the secret police to monitor communications. After three years, Prather, was allowed to start learning the language. Among his pictures and keepsakes are Somalia's language manuals. Snow causes accidents Snowcoveredroads are blamed for numerous accidents this week in Nuckolls Count)'. Accidents investigated by the sheriff's department include one near Lawrence Tuesday. A 1976 Chevrolet driven by R Mazour struck the rear of a 1989 Pontiac driven by Rudolph Hubl.

The train struck the hay trailer. There were no injuries but the trailer was destroyed. Sunday vehicles driven by Rusty Williams and Michael Eggers collided on a county road three miles north and one-fourth mile west of Superior. The vehicles met near the crest of a hill. Snow had reduced the roadway to 15'6" in width and the combined width of the two ve- hicles was 15'4".
