What happened in the Midlands on this day? Here’s a sampling from the World-Herald archives.
February 14, 1946: State aid for school districts was opposed by the Nebraska Farmers Union. The convention, in session at the City Auditorium, by voice vote declared opposition to the proposed constitutional amendment to create a school fund by levying a state tax to collect $8 million to supplement school budgets. The amendment, sponsored by the State Teachers Association, would provide that the proposed tax would supplement each school budget by $40 a pupil annually.
