Mrs. Getzschman, Back from Europe,
Reviews Suffering in Austria
at the Present Time.
Washington, Dec. 2. After a trip
of five months through Austria.
Czecho Slovakia and Italy, during
which time, she says, the squalor
and misery that she saw pass beyond
the "power of words to describe. Mrs.
Pcrtha Getzschman of Omaha, left
Washington today on the final lap
of her return trip to Omaha.
Mrs. Getzschman is a native of
Bohemia, which is now the new re
public of Czecho-Slovakia, r.nd sho
made an intensive study of political
and economic conditions there and in
Austria during her five months visit.
Austria, she declares, is suffering
from dismemberment. "With its body
cut away and nothing you might say.
but the stomach remaining, Austria,
faces starvation," Mrs. Getzschman
said today.
Charles' Coup a Joke
She visited Senator Hitchcock dur
ing her short, stay in the capital.
The American relief which is being
given the people of Austria, she said,
is largely being diverted in such a
way that it does not bring the great
est benefit to the people. Sseretary
Iloover told Senator Hitchcock today
that the relief work being done in
Austria and Czecho-Slovakia now k
wholly in the hands of the govern
ments of the two countries.
He said that there was only one
American there now connected with
his department here.
The Austrians took the attempted
coup of former Emperor Charles ar;
very much cf a joke, Mrs. Getzsch
man said. "There was much 1110:0
n bout that in the American news
papers than in the papers in Vienna,"
she said.
"Over there they just laughed
about it."
Austrian exchange has fallen so
low that an apartment house capable
cf housing eleven families could bo
bought in Vienna for $400, she saiJ.
Rut ?4C0 is about 1.000,000 crow .if.
in Austria at the present rate of ex

day in Vienna unlets you literally
threw the money away," Mrs. Getz

Walter Holcomb Cleared of Charr
of Killing of Thomas Oken
at O'Neill, irebraska. .
O'Neill, Neb., Dec. 1. Walter Hol
cornb on trial here, charged with
manslaughter for killing Thomas O!-se-n,
a Chambers' real estate man at
the Holcomb ranch, August 7, was
acquitted by a jury this afternoon on
his plea that the killing was done in
self defense. On the return of the ver
dict, District Judge Robert R. Dick
ron, scored County Attorney Lewis
declaring that a manslaughter charge
should never have been filed.
He declared the county attorney
derelict in not conducting, or having
conducted, a proper inquest at the
time of the shooting and said that
such an inquest either would have
cleared Holcomb then or have brought
him to trial on a second degree mur
der charge. The county attorney to-.k
no active part in the court trial which

State's Attorney Mortimer said to
night. W. D. (Buck) Evans, member of
the July grand jury, today was ac
cused in a public letter to Governor
Small by C. H. Jenkins, director of
public welfare, of offering to trade
damaging information against the

Reports that Mr. Mortimer plan

Jennings and the governor said, by

of a plot to ruin Small.
Mr. Mortimer, in reply, said he
told the governor's attorneys three
weeks ago of his information, but
that he would take no immediate ac
tion because he did not want to be
in the attitude of prejudicing the
governor's present situation.

The following story may sound a
little "fishy" but nevertheless facts
are facts and Miss Louise Newhall,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Al New-
hall can testify to the truth of the
same: She had started home from
town on Monday afternoon after
school was out, driving the faithful
old family horse that had passed his
twenty-third year. The home Is sev
eral miles south of town. When they
were about a mile from home is
where the horse thought that he
would show the world a thing or two.
An auto was "lazying" along ahead,
the horse pricked up his ears, threw
up his head and loosened his old
Joints and muscles and the way he
shook the dust from his old hoofs
and lit out was almost enough to put
Pat L's record on the fence. He ac
tually went around that car with a
snort of anger. Unfortunately the
buggy was overturned and Miss Lou
ise was thrown out on her head and
rendered unconcious for a short time.
At the present time she is getting
along quite well respite the fact that
she is considerably bruised up.
The horse continued to run until
he reached home and as a result the
buggy and harness were badly dam
aged. It is curious to know Just what
was wrong with the old horse or
what he was up to bu this will al
ways be his secret.
It is said that the auto belonged
to Dan Fentlman and some think
that he must have had some horse
tonic in the car and it was this that
the horse wanted. Elmwood Leader-Echo.

is quite current in Falls City, Auburn
