   "The Sway of the School Bell," (1976) Schools and Histories of Brown, Keya Paha, & Rock Co, Ne. A collection of articles compiled by the Ainsworth Area Retired Teachers. Donated by Marvel Skinner BEARG, 241 East 2nd St, Ainsworth Ne 69210. This book offers a sentimental journey into the past, which is always fun, but there is more. A detailed 1884 map of Brown and Keya Paha Counties is provided, Rock Co was formed later from Brown Co. The appendix contains lists by schools of teachers through 1976. Evidently the lists were compiled from several sources and are not always complete, as noted. Nostalgic articles are interspersed with solid, name-filled school histories. Schools usually are mirrors of the community, making this particular compilation from a three-county area useful to the genealogist. There is no Index. That fact, and a few minor errors detract from the overall effect but research on the informative articles seems to be conscientiously done and the stories are interestingly told.

   EDITOR'S BARK: It would be impossible to prepare a publication like "Nebraska Ancestree" without the help of a great many willing workers. This issue I would like to give a 'special thank you' to our hard working typists: Ruth Anna HICKS Lincoln Ne; Marcia STEWART, Lincoln Ne; Howard N. CAMP, Crete Ne; Glen C. CROUCH Meridan Id; Melvin FORESHOE, Omaha Ne; Alta DRASSER, Beaver Crossing Ne; Veda CLEMENTS, Franklin Ne; Ida Mae DUBOIS, Plattsmouth Ne; Jacqueline DALLMAN, Franklin Ne; Wayne BERGSTEN, Minden Ne; Mrs. Helene FULLEN, Omaha Ne; Jean RIMA, Shelton Ne; Lorrie BOSWORTH, Minden Ne; Georgene MORRIS SONES, Omaha Ne. Thru this issue I have done all of the final typing myself but with the help of these many fine people my work on the final typing will be greatly reduced and in time will hopefully be unnecessary. I know I have been a hard taskmaster in order to teach these willing workers how to do the special format that we use to make our publication like it is. Too often the basic work our typists must do is taken for granted by all of us but without their work the finished product would be impossible. I want to thank you for your long hours and your patience for thats what you all use while working with me. Won't all of you reading this issue make a special effort to thank any of the above typists when you see them and let them know how much we all appreciate their endeavors* If there is anyone else who would like to help us with our typing please let me know as we can always use more help.

   Patience is the ability to put up with people you'd like to put down.
