HOWELL ACTS AS
IS CONTENTION OF CHAIRMAN
MAYFIELD OF THE STATE
BOARD OF CONTROL
Has No Contract With State Sena
tor for Furnishing of Coal,
Lincoln, Oct. 18. Gene Mayfield,
chairman of the state board of con
trol in charge of state institutions
replied today to published criticism
n republican papers because the
board of control authorized the E.
E. Howell Coal Co., of Omaha, to
furnish the fuel for nine of the fif
The board secured an agreement
from Howell to furnish coal to the
state on the basis of 5 cents per ton
profit. ' The next lowest bid called
for about 10 cents per ton profit,
members of the board of control de
clared. 'The board considered itself
especially fortunate in securing the
agreemnet, Mr. Mayfield declared.
Republican papers have raised a
kick on the ground that Howell, the
senior member of the firm, is also a
state senator. It is claimed that the
constitution expressly forbids a state
officer from entering into a contract
with the state.
"There is no contract in that sense
of the word." Mr. Mayfield declared.
"Mr. Howell merely acts as purchas
ing agent for the state. Our position
is supported by an opinion from At
torney General Reed."
"I imagine the people of the state
are much more interested in saving
5 cents a ton on 25,000 tons of coal,
which will be needed to supply the
nine institutions, than the attempt
of the press to throw a partisan
light on the arrangement."

You'll Be Proud Of!
There are two things you must have in an overcoat,
in spite of all the changed market conditions. Those
two are comfort and quality you can't do without
you get both. They look good because they're styled
by master designers; they'll hold up under the stress of
wear because quality is put into them by master tailors.
That's the sort of overcoats we're offering you with
assured satisfaction for just a little money as is consis
