Claire is requesting that anyone writing to the P O Box 541 Fremont NE, please put your return address on it. Until we know that the anthrax scare has subsided, that which is not identifiable, will not be opened. We have had several hoax powders show up in Fremont P O boxes, and they advise open only the letters you can relate to return addresses.
Our Usual Show and Tell really was an interesting evening. There were trips to Libraries, out-of-state and within Nebraska, all successful.
Dick Jacoby invested in a book in his line and found that it really had much good information.
Claire displayed the old Hooper Sentinels, which she is steam pressing, from one that has been rolled for years and after it has been steam-pressed.
Old photos appeared from visits with older members of the family, some distantly related.

Midland College held her Homecoming this year, Friday November 17, in connection with the Kearney Midland game. Many of the former Midlanders and former Fremonters as well as friends of the College were back for the day. The Pep Chapel in the morning, the Parade, the game which was a victory for Midland of 13 – 0, and the big Banquet in the evening at the Pathfinder Hotel, where 228 Midlanders were present, were full of enthusiasm, and in spite of the gloomy weather it was one of the greatest Home-comings Midland has ever had.
The Warriors play their next to the last game of the season with Nebraska Central College on Thursday afternoon, November 23, at Central City. It is hoped that the boys will play hard, for one or two of the team will not be able to play because of injuries received during the Kearney game
