OPERATION ON SKULL
Frank Bender of Lincoln Is Normal
Mentally After Nineteen Years
With Clouded Brain.
Lincoln, Feb. 9. Frank Bender,
1311 South Eleventh street, this city,
was restored to memory here yester
day, after a lapse of nineteen years, by
an operation on the brain.
xsmeteen years ago Bender fell
against a stove and fractured his
skull. Since then he has acted
strangely and for a time disappeared
from his home, awakaning only to find
himself in a strange city. His family
had conducted a nation-wide search
Two physicians last week operated
upon Bender's sky.ll. Yesterday at the
hospital he told all about his child
hood, which up until the time of the
operation had been a blank. Bender's
eyesight had also been impaired by
the accident, but now he is able to
read with comfort.
Last September Bender disappeared
from his home in Lincoln for a few
days and was later found by the Oma
ha police wandering about that city.
FIRE AT COLUMBIAN SCHOOL
BUILDING THIS MORNING
This morning shortly before 7
o'clock the residents of the city were
startled by the notes of the fire whis
tle, which aroused a great many from
their slumbers to discover that the
alarm was turned in from the Colum
bian school, but fortunately the dam
age did to the building was slight and
the prompt work of those residing in
that vicinity succeeded in getting the
flames out in a short time. The fire
was caused, it is thought, by a spark
from the chimney alighting on the
roof and causing the blaze to burst
forth. It was very fortunate for the
city that the blaze was discovered
when it was before serious damage
was done to the building.
Fred Kaffenberger Returns.
Last evening Fred Kaffenberger
came nome irom Umana. where he
has been for the last week taking
treatment at one of the hospitals for
an affliction of the Hit oat which has
been giving him a great deal of
trouble of late, and he will remain at
home for a short time resting pre

URGING HASTE ON
House Committee Inclined to Comply,
But Not Along Lines of Sec
retary Garrison's Conti
.Washington, Feb. 9. With Presi
dent Wilson urging both democratic
and republican members of the house
military committee to hasten prepara
tion of bills to carry out the army's
part in the national preparedness
scheme, indications tonight were that
the measure might be ready for the
house within two weeks. Hearings will
ocme to a close tomorrow or next day,
and it is understood the main features
of the bills already have been whipped
into the shape in which it is expected
they will receive virtually the unani
mous approval of the committee. The
senate committee already has con
cluded its hearings on army bills and
will take up the work of drafting its
proposals for the senate early next
The bills of the two houses, it is ex
pected, will differ radically and the
final legislation will be worked out as
a compromise in conference.
Progress on Navy Legislation.
Progress was made today on navy
legislation, the measures paving the
way for construction of battleships 43
and 44 at navy yards and providing
for 300 additional mUshipmen in the
July class at Annapolis, being passed
by the senate. They passed the house
today and lack only the president's
signature to become law. Speaker
Clark, in line with' his recent speech
in the house advocating that the per
sonnel at both Annapolis and West
Point be doubled, introduced a bill to
make such an increase in the number
of cadets at the military academy.
Chairman Hay of the house military
committee and several of his demo
cratic colleagues discussed army plans
with President Wilson during the day
at the president's suggestion.
Tomorrow Representative Kahn, the
ranking republican member, with
others of the minority, will go to the
White house on the' same errand.
It was evident in later proceedings
of the committee that Representative
Hay had not been swayed from his op
position to Secretary Garrison's pro
posal for a continental army, which
the president advocated during his re
cent preparedness campaign trip to
the middle west. A witness before
the committee said ho was opposed to
the continental plan.
"So am I," Mr. Hay interjected.
"We all are."
Bill to Be Written Quickly.
Democrats and republicans of the I
committee agreed tonight in saying
that an army bill would be written
quickly, although there might be
minor details which would take con
siderable debate to settle. The feature
of the house bill, it was said, would be
federalization of the national guard
through a pay bill carrying limitations
designed to give the war department
peace time control of training and of
ficering of the national guard.
Adjutant General Foster, of the
Florida national guard, chairman of
the executive committee of the Na
tional Guard association, again was in
Washington tonight, and it was under-

stood he would be furcher consulted in
order that the bill might be made ac
ceptable to the state troops.
Coupled with the pay feature of the
bill probably will be Chairman Hay's
plan to authorize the president to
draft national guardsmen into the fed
eral service Immediately in time of
war. This is designed to settle any
conflict of authority which might arise
and also to insure that the whole mem
bership of the guatd will be available
for federal uses, the number not being
dependent, as now, upon how many
Divided on Proposals.
For the regular army the bill prob
ably will provide the 40,000 additional
men asked for by Secretary Garrison,
although the committee is said to be
about equally divided on the Hay and
Garrison plans for making the in-
creases. Kepresentative Hay proposes
to fill existing regiments up to full
war strength and increase only the
number of artillery regiments; while
Secretary Garrison has asked for ad
ditional skeleton remnants of in
fantry and artillery to make up tac
An element of the committee favors
continuance of the practice of govern
ment manufacture of army munitions
and on this aspect of the plans the
committee will face a struggle within
its own ranks. Some members believe
those favoring the war department's
attitude of providing work enough for
private plants to insure a big wartime
production capacity have votes enough
to secure this end in the bill.
The house naval committee con
tinued its struggle today over details
of navy personnel problems with Rear
Admiral Blue, chief of the bureau of
navigation still on the stand. Admiral
Blue presented the department's pro
posals for a redrafting of the naval re

PETITION TO ALLOW
COASTING ON MAIN ST.
A petition has been circulated by a
number of those interested in the
coasting on High School Hill for per
mission to allow the coasters to slide
on any night of the wee k, and as a re
sult all of the property owners along
the route of the coasters signed the
petition and there does not seem to be
any serious opposition to the use of
the High School Hill rnd Main street
in the evening for coasting, although
those who coast are expected to see
that the intersections are guarded so
as to prevent accidents from teams
crossing the streets while the sleds
are coming down the hill and to pre
vent the coasters frcm taking too
great chances in their sport, and if
this is looked after properly every
thing seems to give promise of being
lovely and satisfactory to everyone.

THE LATE MRS. MARY E.
WHITE LAID AT REST
The funeral of the late Mrs. Mary
E. White was held yesterday after
noon from the late heme on Lincoln
avenue and was attended by a large
number of the friends and neighbors
of the deceased lady p.nd members of
the Woodman Circle, of which she was
a member. The services were in
charge of Rev. H. G. McClusky of the
First Presbyterian church, who spoke
words of comfort to the sorrowing
family and the grief-stricken friends,
at the close of the service the
b'ody was conveyed to Oak Hill ceme-
tery, where it was laid to rest. The
family of the deporteJ lady have the
deepest sympathy of the community

Principal Eggenberger to Hospital.
Principal A. O. Egg?nberger of the
Plattsmouth High school, who was in
jured a few days ago by falling on the
sidewalk near his residence, seems to
have injured himself more severely
than was at first suposed and his ac
cident has brought on what seems to
be a case of appendicitis, as the strain
is supposed to have led to this com
plication. It is not known just what
will be necessary in the case until af
ter a thorough examination of the in
jured man is made at the hospital.
