Action of Fred C. Haffke of This City
Against Railroad Company is De
cided in Favor of Company
From Wednesday's Dally.
The damage suit of Fred C. Haffke
of this city against the Missouri Pa
cific railroad company, which was
tried this week at Lincoln before
District Judge W. M. Morning, was
decided yesterday morning by the
court when he sustained' a motion
of the defense to instruct the jury to
return a verdict in favor of the rail
In the cause of action the plaintiff
sought damages in the sum of $3,000
and in his petition stated that on
ADril 14. 1920. he was driving a
heavy loaded motor truck in Sarpy
conntv and crossing the tracks of
the defendant company near Fort
Crook when his vehicle was struck
by one of the defendant's trains and
demolished. The plaintiff sustained
severe injuries to his person as well.
It was contended by the railroad
company in the case that the accident
was due entirely to the negligence
of the plaintiff, who was familiar
with the road, could have seen the
train coming and could have stopped
his truck if he had been handling it
with proper care.
The plaintiff had contended that
the situation of the crossing was
such as to obscure the view of the
approaching train as well as the fact
that the locomotive did not give any
alarm of its approach.

YOUNG GIRL GOES
TO GENEVA SCHOOL
Clara Lamphear is Ordered to State
School on Being Found Guilty of
Incorrigible in County Court
From Wednesday's Dally. j
Yesterday afternoon County Judge'
Beeson had before him for trial, Clara '
Lamphear, a sixteen-year-old girl on ;
the charge of being incorrigible, the j
complaint being filed by County At-'
torney A. G. Co'e. as the result of a
number of complaints from residents j
of the city as to the conduct of the
The case is most unfortunate, both
owing to the youth of the young girl I
and the sorrow and grief that it has !
brought to her family, but was a step j
taken as the only possibility of im- j
proving her conduct.
This is only one case of many ,
that have resulted from the habit!
of the girls of the community being j
allowed to run at large until their
parents and relatives are unaoie io
control them and they gradually drift
into the least desirable company that
results in bringing not only sorrow
to their families, but a great grief
to themselves. The present day con
ditions are not the best for the young
girls to be allowed to go when they
please at all hours of the night and
remaining out until the early morn
ing hours and this one case which
is not as serious as a number of oth
ers have proven should be a striking
object lesson to the parents of the
community to check up the actions
of their children.
The law can punish, but the law
is not the power to instruct and
guide the young people in the time j
before they have strayed from the:
straight and narrow path and thisi
responsibility lies with the parents!

In seventeen major service., the ser
