THE WOMAN’S CLUB
DISCUSS THE JAPANESE
The regular meeting of the Literary
Department was held in the club room
■on Wednesday afternoon with a good
attendance in spite of the weather.
The program was in charge of Mrs. F.
J. Dishner. Mrs. George Longstaff’s
pdper in debate on Japanese Immigra
tion, was read by Mrs. H. E. Radaker
and was a logical plea for the Jap from
the Jap standpoint.
Miss Anna Donohoe followed with
a most convincing argument against
Japanese immigration on the grounds
that the Japs are not and never will be
true and loyal American citizens, and
are a menace to our country. A gen
eral discussion followed which was
heartily entered into by all the mem
bers of the club.

SHERIDAN PUTS BURNS
AWAY IN FIRST ROUND
One of the largest audiences of box
ing fans that has ever gazed across the
ropes in this county at an indoor bout
greeted the middle weight wonder of
Sioux City, Homer Sheridan and Joe
Burns, of Minneapolis, as they entered
the ring last Thursday night in the K.
C. theatre in this city. The bout was
staged under the auspices of the K. C.
During the first round Sheridan tap
ped Burns in the pit of the stomach
considerably above the belt and Burns
proceeded to lay down and take the
count. Montana Jack Sullivan, man
ager of Homer Sheridan, asked that
Burns be groomed up a bit and after
a ten minute recess, be placed in the
ring and finish the engagement.
Burns came back strong and made a
good showing for four rounds until he
ran into one of Homer’s jabs to the
jaw and Referee Ryan gave Sheridan
the second decision.
The preliminaries were good. Ernest
Smith, of Walnut, defeated Ralph
Stanage, of Colome, South Dakota, in
the second round of what was to have
been a five round go. The exhibition
was fast from start to finish.
Sheridan was to have met Chuck
Lambert in Omaha tonight be
fore the American Legion boxing
show. Lambert, we understand, has
developed pneumonia and Johnny
Strike has been substituted, with
whom Sheridan fought a draw in Sioux
City some time ago.

GALLAGHER’S MINIMUM WAGE
BILL SUFFERED DEFEAT
One of the hotly contested issues of
last week in the House of Representa
tives at Lincoln, was the minimum
wage bill for women which place the
minimum wage for women in industry
at $12 per week. It bore the house
number 95 and was introduced by
Donald Gallagher of this city. A
number of hearings were given in the
past two weeks at which many inter
ested citizens on both sides of the
question appeared and discussed the
bill. The opposition generally claim
ed that the law, if enacted, would de
prive many women of opportunity to
obtain work a part of the time, and
would in practical life be detrimental
to the very class it was designed to
help. This view must have prevailed
as on final vote near the close of the
week the bill received only 39 votes to
44 against. Seventeen members were
sick and consequently absent. This
issue has appeared frequently in the
the sessions of recent years and also in
the constitutional convention of 1920.
It therefore has a familiar face but
has never been able to muster enough
support against the big interests tQ
gain approval although Donald made
valiant effort to put it across.
