X. McGohey said it must decide whether the defendants helped in these shootings.

The new convictions brought to 27 the number of Nationalist party members who hiive been convicted of, or pleaded guilty to, seditious charges in the past six months. As in previous cases, the 10 face up to six years in prison and $5,000 in fines or both. Sentencing was set for March 31. s One Actjtilled The defendant acquitted was Serafin Solon Alovera, 43, New York.

W—Fttlls City Is it first class city under Nebraska law. Hut it isn't so listed. It's second class. Wonder why? Well, a legislative committee was told Wednesday it's the city has a "very altruistic government." This all mum; out when Atty. P. A. Huljonsireii of Palls City appeared to ask 'that second class cities be ^iven power to regulate i rales. That's a power first cluss cities have. When he got through, Secretary C. E. Heals of the Nebraska UM^UI; ol Municipalities pointed uijt Uuit Falls City is a first class cuy "but never .sent in its certifi- That brought a quick "why" irom the government committee members. HeheiLstrciL grinned and said, "We have a very altruistic government. It can run cheaper as a second class city than as a first class city, because of the smaller salaries, and save the people some money." Nebraska law permits the Legislature to set city salaries and naturally those for first class oitiea — any one with a population of over 5,000 — are higher than for second class cities. Palls City's population is 6,203. The committee said R would think over Hebenstrelt's gas bill proposal, The cheerful songs of tree frogs arc heard most often during damp weather and before a storm. Italy's Folk Songs Tell of Love And of Hate, Expert Discloses By WEBB McKINLEY ROME UR — Alan Lomax, a big, 40-year-old New Yorker, collects folk music. He believes a nation's civilization — particularly Its attitude toward women — is reflected in its folk songs and in the way men sing them. Lomax's father, the,late John A. Lomax, was curator of folk music in the Library of Congress. Alan was Assistant curator. With his father he traveled for thousands of" miles in America recording the music of mountaineers, Negroes and Indians. He has edited 14 albums of folk songs, from Europe, Asia and America. Now In Italy With his tape recorder Lomax came to Italy last July. Since then he has crawled up mountains, lurked in olive groves, rocked in boats and dodged traffic in cities with an ear to the sounds made by Italians. "In most Italian songs you find one subject." he said. "They're about love. Even the work songs, the grain threshing song, the chestnut harvesting .song." The Lomax theory about music and civilization shows itself strong- Wate-Level Control! Adams Appliance Co. Inc. USED TRACTORS MOST ALL MAKES and MODELS We hare the tractor for you!

Northern Italy has no very starchy traditions about sex. Women are accepted as equals in most matters, and the attitude toward life is open and free. People like to sing together, and their voices are "open-throated, like laughter." Bound by Tradition By contrast, southern Italy is bound by traditions. Many women wear veils, and they are regarded more as property than as equals. 'You can hear the difference in the folk music," Lomax said. "It's solo singing, and the songs tell of suffering. There's a whole form of song in Calabria reviling women who have disappointed men in love. The voices are closed and they don't blend. They sound more like cries, in Arabic style." North of Florence, he heard what sounded like primitive opera — Ligurian peasants singing in chorus, waving their hands in operatic gestures. "This may have been where opera was born," he says. new oil-rich \m(jmj permanent by Nutri-Tonic waves gentler in little as 10 minutes because almost % is Oil Creme base / (patented) ALMOST !/ 3 IS OIL CREME BASE (PATINTID) The oil-rich creaminess helps protect your hair's natural texture and luster while waving so gently.
