TO BE ISSUE OF
FEIME TOPIC OF DISCUSSION
AMONG DELEGATES NOW
UP BEFORE LAST LEGISLATURE
Wilbur F. Byrant Has Eesolution
That Would Bar Them From
Froia Tuesday's Daity.
Twenty or thirty delegates to the
state constitutional convention.
which meets in Lincoln Tuesday, are
in that city and more are coming.
liv tonight it is thot all of them
will be present. It is apparent from
t lie off hand discussions in the hotel
lobbies that the parochial .school will
be a big issue in the convention.
Shortly after the election it was
stated on good authority that 35 of
the delegates were elected on the
issue that the bill of rights should
be amended that no such laws the
Siman language law. now in the
courts could be passed or enforced
in the the state. The law was at-
tarked by a number of parochial
schools where foreign languages are
taught on the ground that they in
terfered with the primary purpose of
the church school, the teaching of
the children of foreign-language
sneaking parents in the tongues of
the latter on religious .subjects, thus
linking them together.
At least one resolution has made
itri apfearance, brought here by a
delegate who nroncses to ask the
convention to insert in the new con
stituiion a proviso that, will permit
the parochial .school system to be
entirely divorced from state super
vision or control, and which will, in
effect, make it a law unto itself.
At the other extreme is an amend
ment to the constitution prepared by
Wilbur I Rrva .L cf Hartingtou. a
delegate from uar county, who pro
poses to abolish the parochial school
f-ysteui entirely and have but one in
the state, the public school system.
Mr. Bryant is a member of the Cath
olic church, but he told some of hi?
friends after his arrival that nearly
all of the priests in his section fought
him. He discovered that they were
taking part in t lie delegate contest
and he tli-en got busy and won out at
the election. .
Another resolution that may possi
bly be introduced provides for state
support, of parochials in those dis
tricts where they have practically
superseded the local district school
on the theory that if he state pre
scribes the course of study and pro
vides supervision it should not re
quire the parents to maintain twe
schools. Still another provides for
no support from the state but allows
the teaching of any subject up tc
the sixth grade.in a foreign language
while religious subjects may be
taught in any language anv time, so
long as nothing immoral is included.
Most of the delegates who ex
pressed themselves on the subject
think that the convention will do
well to await the decision of the
supreme court on the Siman law. If
the courts say that the law is too
broad and that the legislature had
now power to prohibit the teaching
of any subject in a foreign language
until the ninth grade had been
readied, the opinion was expressed
that the new constitution should
give it that power. If the court says,
as some believe it will, that this law
does not attempt to prevent religious
instruction in Sunday schools nor to
interfere with religious instruction
in foreign languages by parents or
priests or ministers, there will be
no need of any amendment.
The school men of the state are
seeking recruits for their plan of a
commission of seven to have charge
of school policy and select state su
perintendents for as long a term as
services are satisfactory. The commis
sioners serve seven years, and are
named by the governor.
Among the arrivals Sunday were
former Speaker Jackson and A. J.
Weaver, who arc candidates for pres
ident. The general talk is that no
preliminary caucus is necessafy, and
that all contents for places can be
staged on the floor of the convention.
It is expected that it will take
most of the week to get the machin
ery in working order, with officers
elected, rules adopted, credentials
passed on and other preliminaries at
tended to. After that the resolutions
of amendment?, may be in order. A
large number of these are expected.
Th" plan to adjourn until sometime
early in January in order that these
may all be printed and the members
have them in hand for examination,

W. II. Kikendall on South Elm street
Friday night and was laid to rest in
Oakwood cemetery Sunday afternoon

ed to show their respect and esteem
for this grand old lady who was
friend to all.
Mrs. Hutchins has been in poor
health for some time and underwent
an operation several nionjths ago for
cancer. As she grew worse it was
thought that she could be better
cared for at the home of Mrs. II

there where all the comforts possible
were administered to her until the
Mrs. Hutchins and husband came
here from Ohio in 1S69 settling on
the farm southeast of town where
they lived tor many years before giv
ing up the farm and moving to town
The only relative from a distance
who attended the funeral was her
niece. Mrs. J. 11. Currey and husband
cf Bradshaw. Nebraska. Friends from
a distance were Mr. and Mrs. John
Reckbam, Mrs. Rulu Buss and Mr
and Mrs. John McFarland all of

ber 14, 1839. near Sharon, Pennsyl
vania, and her girlhood days were
spent in that neighborhood. On Ap
ril 14. 1864. she was married to John
R. Hutchins at Burg Hill, Ohio. To
this union were born two children,
Rees O. Hutchins and Lena L. Flem
ing, who were present at her death
which occurred at the home of her
sister, Mrs. V. H. Kikendall in
Weeping Water November 2S, 1919,

her husband and two children; one
brother, Scott Williams; three sis
ters, Mrs. John H. Davis and Mrs
Km ma Kikendall of Weeping Water
and Mrs. Jane Reed of Sharon, Penn
sylvania, and a host of other relatives
After ,the marriage of Mr. and
Mrs. Hutchins they spent four years
on a farm at Hartford, Ohio; but the
spirit of the pioneer was in their
veins, and in 1869 they came to Ne
braska and bought the fa I'm where
their son Rees now lives, and went
through all the pleasure and priva
tions of the early pioneer.
Mrs. Hutchins united with the
Congregational church at 'Weeping
Water about 20 years ago and her
life has been that of a consistent
Christian. Her sweet spirit and kind
ly deeds toward all with whom she
came In contact are a benediction

Gus Olson of This City Develops a
Good, Live Proposition in the
Sharpening of Blades.
Prom Thursday's Dally.
Gus Olson, of the Olson Photo com
pany has in the past few weeks been
devoting himself to the development
of the razor blade sharpening indus
try and as a result of his efforts has
again placed this feature of his busi
ness on a very paying basis.
Mr. Olson has a branch in Omaha
that cares for the orders received
and yesterday as he made his usual
trip to the metropolis he brought
back with him 10,000 razor blades
that had been turned in by parties
who desired to have them sharpen
ed and placed in condition for use.
Mr. Olson is having a new machine
ordered for the plant in this city that
will assist in caring for the increas
ing demand for resharpened blades
and as the orders continue to pile
in will take other methods of meet
ing the demands of the trade. There
are millions of these blades, used in
the country and at very little ex
pense the razor owners can hav
them made as good as new and much
cheaper than the cost of new blades.
The Olson company handles all man
ner of razors and blades and the re
sult of their work has given the
greatest of satisfaction to their
