Oh my, Claire was
impressed and so were the members that atttended the meeting at the
library. The first 21 photos of Nebraska Memories were revealed. The
Nebraska Memories is a major heading for all participating communities
across Nebraska. Dodge County's memory heading is "Picture This." It
contains Fremont Public and Business Buildings of early past. Kate
Freeman explained all of the strict guidelines used in completing this
large project. A total of 75 photos have been completed and the stories
written for each photo. They must be approved by the State Library
Commission in Lincoln, before they can be used. Every t crossed and i
dotted, along with no errors in spelling etc. And folks, even copyrights
fit into the picture. This site on Dodge County's project will not be
available until later this summer. We will keep you informed as to time
After this viewing
and explanation was complete, we then went into the main library where
we were instructed by Linda Francois, on the use of the project scanner.
. The scanner will digitize all the photos and in doing so they can
enhance a photo and sometimes when it is done, you find people in
windows and in one case it even showed the items on a table inside the
home, as the door was open. , Remarkable.
Our next and final
stop was upstairs and Linda Francois demonstrated the use of the new
digitized copy/reader. It involves a regular reader, but when ready for
printing, you must make use of a computer, which is next to it. In plain
words, the copier is no longer below the reader, with a 'print button'
to the both of
you for a great evening and demonstrations.

NO APRIL FOOL JOKE!
It was no April fool
joke on motorists yesterday when gasoline jumped from 20 ¼ to 22 ¼
cents per gallon, an increase of two cents, as the result of the state
gasoline tax going into effect on that date.
By a provision of the
law, it is said, farmers using gas in operation of tractors may have the
tax rebated by mailing tickets to the state department.

did have, were very interesting. On April 18th, at the home
of the groom, Miss Emma Dierks and Mr Fred Thielen, were joined in
matrimony. The bride is a highly respected young lady of Saunders
county, and the groom, son of Mr and Mrs John Thielen, is a young man
who has spent his boyhood in the city and attained a promising manhood
The ceremony was
preceded by the strains of the wedding march, rendered by Miss Mattie
Reynolds, and the bridal couple took their places amidst cream and pink
roses, carnations and lilies. The bride's gown was fashioned of soft
gray silk, forming a pretty back ground for the shower of bride's roses
she carried. Rev Foskett, pastor of the Baptist church, officiated,
using the double ring ceremony.
impressive moments, the party was served a five course dinner, the
dining room being decorated in pink and white carnations, the library in
cream and white roses, and the parlors in lilies and hydrangeas. Only
the immediate relatives were present. In the afternoon the bridal
couple left, expect to be at home after June 1 at the pretty little
cottage built for the groom on East third street.

on the bookshelf
thank Charles J Klitz for remembering our society. He presented a Dodge
Criterion newspaper of their Centennial Edition. It is quite
interesting reading and may help someone seeking out family
information. Now if someone will step forward and ask to index the
newspaper, it would be a great volunteering job.
Mr Klitz also
presented a one-page story on the history of the Purple Cane cemetery
and also a 10 page story on the St Patrick's church of Clyde and

News from CROWELL
The program and
box social given by the Crowell school Friday evening was fairly well
attended. However, the boxes did not sell as good as expected, the
highest price being $1.50. The program given in connection with the
social was excellent and as a whole did not receive the patronage which
this social deserves.
