TWO LINCOLN EVENING JOURNAt, MONDAY, MAY 17, 1937. A BILL OUTLAW A. S. A. C. P. Declines to Serve as Court or Usurp Judicial Powers. Gov. Cochran signed a bill passed by the unicameral legislature intended to outlaw the American Society of Authors, Composers and Publishers in Nebraska. The bill became law when he placed his signature on it, as it carried the emergency clause. Cochran also signed two other bills. Cochran received many messages urging him to veto the bill aimed at the Society of Authors, Composers and Publishers. "One of the chief arguments against it was that it is unconstitutional," he said. "On that point, I do not propose to serve as a court. I am not a lawyer and even if I were, I .would not try to usurp judicial functions." The other two bills which received his approval were L. B. No. 543, providing for a committee of legislators and executive officers to co-operate with the national council of state governments, and L. B. No. 578, a. corrective measure amending the livestock sales ring regulatory law enacted early in the session. The amendment eliminates any doubt as to whether or not the director of the department of agriculture and inspection has authority to exempt certain sales rings by designating them "community sales barns." m Cochran said he would hold rieariugs before deciding whether to sign L. B. No. 350, eliminating justice of the peace courts in Lancaster county; L. B. No. 499, establishing a standard cream grading law and license and test fees, and L. B. No. 252, providing- for the formation of co-operative rural electrification organizations. James A. Brunt, Fairbury, member of the 1933 state senate, will appear before the governor for independent cream buyers who oppose the "cream bill, alleging that ' as they interpret the bill it discriminates against them in the matter of license, classing them as brokers and charging them $25 while old line cream buyers will get a, license for $2. . BOBBINS HEADS BOARD . (Continued from Page 1-A.) tee consisting of F. A. Good, A. A. Dobson and W. A. Robbins which has been meeting with representatives of school district employes for 'a discussion of the budget. Budget Committee. Good, reporting on meetings of the budget committee, said that, tho progress has been made, the committee is not yet prepared to recommend definite policies or action. Another meeting of the committee was called for late Monday afternoon. To demonstrate the work that has been done so far by the committee, Good showed a number of charts comparing budgets and salary expenditures of various cities. He said that the committee might possibly be ready to make definite recommendations at the next board meeting. Following Dobson's motion, the board unanimously directed the secretary to draft a resolution expressing to Dr. Bailey the board's appreciation of his 'services during- the long- years of his membership. In commenting on his motion, Dobson said that Dr. Bailey had always co-operated whole heartedly with him. "I think Dr. Bailey performed a real service for the community," he said. Supt. Lefler's recommendation that the schools be closed Monday, May 31, for observance of Memorial day was approved. Lefler announced that high school promotion exercises will be at 2 p. m. Tuesday, June 8, and commencement exercises will be June 9. The secretary was authorized to secure St. Paul church for the services. The board approved Supt. Lefler's recommendations that the summer classes for piano and wind instruments and strings, and the summer shop course be " continued. The board heard a request'from a calculating machine company for permission to demonstrate its machine before the WPA adult commercial classes. After discussion, the board decided to refuse the request, along the lines of present policy in the high schools. It was feared that granting this request would open the way for demonstrations of all kinds. The board decided that, accord- Ing to the lease, it is the duty of the county, and not the Lincoln school district, to pay an estimated $340 for repair of boilers at Bryant school. The First National Bank of Lincoln, the Continental National Bank of Lincoln, and the National Bank of Commerce were designated as depositories of the school district funds.

Savery, president of the Lincoln Ministerial association, Monday morning' appointed Rev. William M. Swartzwelder, Rev. R. A. Dawson, Rev. F. L. Rodenbeck, Rev. C. H. Nicks and Rev. H. O. Martin as a committee to work with the race relations department of the Lincoln Council of Federated Church 'Women in an effort to improve inter-racial conditions, particularly relations between Negroes and 1 white people, in Lincoln. Appointment of the committee followed appearance of a delegation from the Lincoln Council of Federated Church Women at the monthly meeting- of the ministerial group in the Y. W. C. A. Mrs. Mae H. Tousley, chief spokesman from the women's committee, re-, viewed briefly the work of her group and the Urban" league, praising the latter organization. "Our object," she said, "is to abolish the color line from all Christian activity in Lincoln and to seek for the colored people equal opportunities." Mrs. Edwards, Negro member of the delegation, spoke briefly on the Negro point of view. "We do not wish pity," she said, "but we do wish tolerance, amiable tolerance." She praised the work of the inter-racial committee and the Urban league. The meeting was opened with a devotional led by Rev. C. F. Stark. Rev. Mr. Stark told of his conversion to 'the ministry 22 years ago following- a series of addresses by Billy Sunday. Rev. Mr. Savery appointed Rev. Floyd Leslie Blewfield, Rev. W. F. Perry and Rev. Russell M. Bythewood as members of the nominating committee. Prof. Newton ,W. Gaines of the agricultural college discussed the necessity, as he sees it, for organization of young- people in an effort to bring them into the church and into a religious way of living, not as individuals, but in groups. In past years, he said, it was much easier than it is now to-expose young- people to Christianity. Discussing- the cost of crime, he said, "We've reached the time when we've got to get young folks mad at crime and get them to see what crime is cheating them out of." He stressed the importance of common interests within the family to unite parents and children in Christian ways of living. LAST ACTJ3F BOARD (Continued from Page 1.) the meeting Friday said t the old committee had always construed the state law as prohibiting the transfer of funds from old age to blind or dependent children and that the attorney general was the only attorney he knew of who had decided in favor of such transfers. "Two members, the governor and attorney general, were present when the action -was taken,'' said Tolen, "and Leo Swanson, state land commissioner, whose home is in Omaha, was asked to endorse the action but he declined and later State Treasurer Jensen's endorsement to the transfer was obtained." Officers of the state assistance committee explain "that the surplus share of Douglas county's old age fund comes from state funds only and is not matched. It accumulated, it was said, because Douglas county early in the program was slow about getting people on the old age list. The surplus is now to be used by Douglas county for relief in May. The federal government gives nothing for direct relief and the legislature has thrown relief work upon the counties. FARM LEADERS PROGRAM (Continued from Page 1.) gold, came from Representative Dies (d., Tex.) Chairman Connery (d, Mass.) said in Lawrence, Mass., that the house labor committee would report with "presidential approval" a bill for maximum hours and wages in industry. Connery said the committee would approve a bill for a 35-hour work week and an $18 minimum weekly wage in the textile industry. » A Brooking-s institution reported to a special senate committee on government reorganization recommend the consolidation of all federal power activities under one agency. President Roosevelt invited Secretaries Wallace,. Woodring and Ickes to the white house Monday to discuss a national power and flood control plan. He plans to send a message to congress on the subject this week. Approximately 50 members of the women's brigade of the Workers Alliance gathered on the capitol steps to urge enactment of a bill to appropriate $3,000,000,000 for work-relief in the next fiscal year.. THREE WESLEYAN RECITALS Nebraska Weleyan university school of music announced three junior recitals to be given this week. Monday night at 8:15, Eleanor Norval, mezzo soprano, Fred Swan, tenor, and Walter Fosbury, baritone, will appear together, with Helen Minick as accompanist. At 8:15 p. m.

Sinking fund Is Short $110,000 of Amounts Coming Due July 1. Refunding- of $110,000 worth of paving district bonds due July 1 was a big item for consideration Monday afternoon-aa the new city council held its first real business session. Suggested for refunding by Director Berg were $82,000 of the $86,000 issue of 1927 by College View, 17 $1,000 bonds of the $172,270 issue of 1928 by the city and 12 $1,000 bonds of the $119,160 issue 'of 1931. There has been $1,000 collected in special assessments on the block of the 1931 issue, leaving a total of $110,000. In an explanation to the council, Berg said special assessment bonds and interest due July 1 amount to $246,438, while there is in the sinking- fund only $136,438. That figure includes estimated May and June collections and estimated county collections. It was p'roposed to refund the bonds at 3 percent, payable semiannually, one-tenth to come due on July 1, 1938. The College View series now bears 5 percent interest, the 1928 series 4 1-4 percent and the 1931 series 3 3-4 percent. N Director Erickson, who is also city engineer, was directed to,draw plans and, specifications for three new paving- districts, the petitions being found to be sufficient. The paving will be on 9th from South t» Park; Calvert to Woodsdale on 30th and 29th to 30th on Calvert; and from 2nd to 6th on ^Q. Erickson stated these three districts will take all of the present §100,000 PWA allotment and unless the application for another $100,000 is approved in Washington, any new paving will have to be made on the basis of a full assessment. He said the complete cost of the three will run somewhat over the. allotment because of storm sewer work. The council also considered resolutions authorizing the purchase of an acre and a half of land from S. A. and Mary Foerste for burrow pits from, which earth will be used for filling on the' Havelock cutoff and the institution of condemnation proceedings to obtain land for pits on the No. 10th street cutoff. Price to be paid for the Foerste land is $450. Another resolution directed the engineer to construct concrete reinforcements around the 36-inch cast iron water supply line where it Intersects the west approach of the new Havelock viaduct. Designated as city depositories were the First National bank, National Bank of Commerce, Havelock National bank, Continental National bank, Citizens State bank and Union bank. The $10,000 bonds of Directors Venner, Berg and Erickson were filed and approved as was the $300,000 bond of City Treasurer Miller. Erickson and Berg probably will have to furnish other bonds as city engineer and city clerk. C. E. Speidell applied for a permit to make additional curb 'cuts of 25 feet and 24 feet on 10th and R. SEEKS INTERVENTION (Continued from Page 1.) braska and having contracts approved by the federal government for all of the water of the Sutherland district for 30 years at a cost to us of $100,000 per annum. 1 ' They requested- "no order _ be made permitting intervention by any other districts until we have an^ opportunity to object and be heard." The power commission hearing was set after Platte Valley district officials protested against the commission's statement that the project's effect on the navigability of the Missouri river made it interstate in character. Quotes Tri-County Petition. Williams, the Sutherland president, quoted tha Tri-County petition of intervention as holding: That the operation of the project of the Platte Valley Public Power and Irrigation district and the diversion of water by It from the North Platte river for its "operation will reduce the flow of the (Missouri) river at Nebraska City by as much as 10 73 percent and will reduce Ksc river stage at Nebraska Ctty by aft much as 0.304 feet during the part of the year when water Is being diverted from the North Platte river and stored in the project of said district, and during the part of the year when the Missouri river Is open and subject to navigation. Explaining the connection between Tri-County and Sutherland use of Platte river water, Williams quoted the petition as saying: The Platte valley district from an operational point of view will become and be an Integral part of the water carrying conduits of the Central Nebraska district and the jurisdiction of this commission over said district will be incomplete if the conditions of operation of the district are liable to interruption. Interference or change by an independent organization. x x x There is no by-pass arrangement at the power house of the Platte Valley district and because thereof the water supply of the Central district, which will pass thru the canals and conduits will be subjected to deductions by a district unlicensed by the commission. Irrigation company representatives, on the advice of Walter Hoagland of North Platte, legal counsel for several of the groups, requested the Sutherland district by resolution to protect its $100,000 30 year contracts with the companies. The contracts were required and approved by the public works administration sponsoring the hydroelectric and irrigation development. The companies pointed out they also have priority water rights guaranteed by state law. The water, they said, is under the control of the state bureau of irrigation. Williams said he did not receive a copy of the Tri-County petition of intervention until Saturday. It was filed Thursday, he said. WASHINGTON. UP). An attorney for the Central Nebraska public power and irrigation district urged that the federal power commission assume jurisdiction over the Platte Valley public power and irrigation district. The attorney, P. E. Boslaugh, of Hastings, told Examiner Frank A. Hampton of the power commission that the Platte Valley project "will directly affect the water in the Missouri river." This, he contended, makes it in the interests of interstate commerce. Boslaugh also argued that because of their closeness and interchange agreements, the commission must have jurisdiction over the Platte Valley project if it is to have "full jurisdiction" over the Central Nebraska and Loup Valley projects. The latter and Loup Valley projects have accepted commission jurisdiction, but the ·Platte Valley is opposing it Monday's hearing originally was scheduled to allow the Platte Valley an opportunity to offer evidence in opposition to the commission's ruling that the project, completed and in operation, must obtain a federal license, thereby placing it under the commission's jurisdiction. The Platte Valley, however, sent word it relied on the commission io iiioke ». "thoro investigation" and a "fayr and just determination," and would not be represented at the hearing-. After ruling the Platte Valley must obtain a license, the commission suspended operation of its finding, pending a final determination. Originally the commission held the Platte Valley would not affect interstate commerce, but reversed this decision after the filing of a supplemental report showing enlarged plans by -which the project ·was constructed. Tri-County Intervene*. Boslaugh argTied in support of a recently filed petition by the Central Nebraska (Tri-County) district for authority to intervene in opposition to the Platte Valley's plea for exemption from commission jurisdiction. The examiner did not rule Monday on the intervention petition, nor upon another petition filed by eight Nebraska irrigation companies against allowance of intervention by the Central Nebraska district. Hampton did,_ however, allow a witness for the Central Nebraska to testify "conditionally." This testimony, given by Robert Alexander Souther-land, a Hastings engineer, will be excluded from the record in event of denial of Central Nebraska's intervention petition. Southerland's testimony dealt entirely with engineering problems. GRADUATION AT PAROCHIAL Commencement Held at Immanuel Lutheran School. · Commencement services for the graduates of Immanuel Lutheran, school were held Sunday night. Rev. J. Heins spoke on the text Ps. Ill, 10: "The Kind of Education with the Fear of God In it." Alex Froscheiser, John Maul and Martin Maul spoke for the graduates. The children's chorus sang "Jesus, Thy Blood and Righteousness." Diplomas were presented by John Bretzer, member of the school board. ADMITS SLAYING WOMEN CHICAGO. (UP).

Faculty Committee for Freshman Recommendations Rejects Plan to Separate Them and Other Classes (From the Daily Ncbnukan.) The faculty committee of 20 appointed several months ago to atudy plan* looking toward better methods of handling freshmen rejected the adoption of a lower division plan and made 12 suggestions for improvement in the present' set-up for orienting,-advising, and instructing first year students. The report, however, will not be considered by the university senate until early next fall. Growing out of a discussion of lower division plans, separating freshmen from the other three classes, on the floor of the university senate last fall, the committee considered such schemes as one now in operation at five universities. Special emphasis was given the plan of Louisiana State. Summary. Summary of the main report reads in part as follows: "As a result of its study, the committee it of the opinion, that while considerable improvement ha* been made at the University of Nebraska in the methods of dealing with freshmen, there are atpectm of tlje university's policy, and practices in regard to their admission, educational guidance, and teaching that may be improved. The committee does not feel, however, that a lower division plan similar to that now in operation at Louisiana State , University should be adopted at this time." Tangible results of the committee's work, extending over eight three-hour meetings besides several protracted sessions of a subcommittee, are the 12 suggestions included ill the majority report. Main Recommendation. Probably the main recommendation in the report pertains to a freshman advisory committee, consisting of one member from each of the colleges registering: freshmen with the registrar and the dean of student affairs as ex officio members. This committee shall -direct the' collection, classification, and analysis of educational guidance Information and shall arrange for transmission of such information to the special advisers. The report provides that the university take steps to assemble such educational guidance information including: high school records, psychological- and college aptitude tests, personal financial information, information on social proclivities, and estimates of high school teachers and principals. Another provision of the report provides for the creation of the office of special freshmen advisor in those of the six colleges registering freshmen who now do not have such advisors. Arts and sciences, teachers, and engineering colleges have such advisors. The colleges of pharmacy, agriculture, and business administration would establish such officers if the suggestion is adopted. Advice for Frosh. Besides the collection of educational guidance information and the charging of the special advisors, the freshmen advisory committee would advise all first year students who have not made their choice of colleges. It would also inform high school graduates who lack preparation or ability for university work of the difficulties confronting them as well as encourage students especially fitted for higher education. Further duties of the new fresh- .men committee pertain to the control of a research officer in freshmen orientation recommended by the report. The offices of this ·full time research worker would include investigations, collection and digestion of information about prospective students, continuous studies of the achievement of freshmen plans in other universi- ·ties, etc. It is suggested that the officer have a knowledge of personnel problems on both the secondary and higher educational levels and training in research and statistical methods. The report provided that graduates, of accredited high schools not qualified to meet university requirements or not wishing- to become a candidate for a degree may enroll for any course in the university for which he shows evidence of fitness. The faculty committee further suggested that the sevedal colleges take steps to insure a more thorough grasp of the fundamental subjects of the first two years before students be permitted to take advanced subjects in the last two years. ' Preceding two general recon«|* mendations, the committee reports includes the following statement: "The committee, moreover, recommends that none of the , recommendations herein made be put into effect if such action would involve recurring expenditures which would divert any considerable amount ,of ^rfunds from the teaching of freshmen." ' f Members of the six colleges serving on the committee were: Karl W. Arndt, W. L. DeBeaufre, Joseph B. Burt,. Arthur F. Jenness. o. A. Worcester, E. S. Fullbrook (secretary), Cleon O. Swayzee, C. S. Hamilton, .Tiles W. Hancy, Harold B. O. Hoick, Amanda H Heppner, Lane W. Lancaster, H. P. Davis, H. C. Fllley, H. B. Bradford. W. H. Morton, O. H Werner, Chas. L. Wtble, J. P. Colbert and T. J. Thompson (chairman) FARMER SHOOTS SELF. M'COOL, Neb. ta). Sheriff A. E. Carter said Clarence H. Dreier, 48, farmer near here, took his own life at his home by shooting himself with a shotgun. Dreier evidently stood at the head of the stairs, put the gun muzzle against his abdomen, and fired. He tum- bled downstairs and rolled into the living room. Mrs. Dreier and a daughter summoned a physician and Dreier's brother from a nearby farm, but the man died before medical aid arrived. The family was unable to give -a reason for the act. A son, four sisters and two other brothers also survive. LES M'DONALD SIGNS ,, WITH CHICAGO BEARS GRAND ISLAND. UP).

WHO BENEFITS FROM AMERICA'S LIFE INSURANCES Since the end of 1929, American life insurance companies have paid to policyholders and beneficiaries over $18,000,000,000--enough, for example, to provide an income of* ISO a month to more than a million families for 10 years. In 1936 alone, the amount paid out was 42,400,000,000. Upsetting the old idea that "you have to die to win," $1,460,000,000--more than 60% of the total amount--went to living policyholders. This year, payments to both policyholders and beneficiaries are being made at the rate of more than * quarter off million every hour of every day. Week THE'SOONER"YOU PLAN YOUJCFUTURE ...
