While one of the prominent fam

away visiting, the sweetheart of the
girl who was left in charge, called
to see his "Dulcina" and as they
were talking about "what wa3 in the
future for them, a -very peculiar
noise was heard, which they thought
was someone entering the house by
the coal chute. The gallant swain
with a descretion which would not
have been supposed counting his
years, dived down town for assist
ance, while the fair one watched the
house that the burglar, if such was
the case, should not escape. When
sufficient reenforcenients had been
secured they went and searched the
premises and found in the cellar, that
the coal had slid down from where
it was piled against the wall, and
caused the frightful noises.

Proposes to Follow Opinion of At
torney General New Seal Not
Yet Designed or Filed.
Regardless of what the governor's
commission proposes to put into the
proposed new state seal there will be
no new seal until another legislature
meets and authorizes. This is the as
sertion heard at the state house. It is'
based on the position taken by Sec-'
retary of State Darius M. Amsberry I
that legalley there can be no new!
seal until another legislature takes'
affirmative action. He holds with As- j
sistant Attorney General Mason
Wheeler and he act of the recent leg
islature does not authorize the adop
tion of a new seal and that the old
seal will remain the seal of the state
until the act of 1667 adopting the
present seal is repealed. Mr. Wheel- !
er called attention last September to
the absence of a repealing clause in j
the bill nassed bv the last legislature. !
The secretary of state is custodian
of the seal of Nebraska and if he re-
fuses to use a new one soon' to be de-
signed his action will settle the con-
Commends Amsberry
Mr. Amsberry has received the fol
lowing letter commending his posi -
tion. It was wr'tten by M. C. War -

by one of Governor Sam's commis

ate a proper regard for the splendid
sentiment of honest industry and
high regard for law and Justice;
which is so openly manifested and :

Governor McKelvie. mentioned by meeting at Grand Island, gave voice
Mr. Warrington, appointed a com-10 tne charges of improper food or
mission to design a new seal. The
bill authorizing this was introduced
by Representative George A. Wil
liams of Filmore county. Mr. Wil
liams alleges he is the originator of
the bill. Dr. G. E. Condra, who was
interested in having such a bill in
troduced, was appointed on the com
mission by the governor. Mrs. E. B.
Penney of Fullerton is the third ap
pointee. Attorney General's Opinion
Last September Assistant Attorney
General Mason Wheeler wrote in re
gard to the bill creating the seal
commission: "No provision is made
for the offcial approval of such de
sign. An act approved June 15. 1867,
officially adopts the present seal as
Ldoes section 5569, Revised Statutes
of 1913. These statutes officially
adopting the present seal are not re
pealed or affected by H. R. 571 and
in our opinion the present seal of the
state remains the official seal of the
state until a new seal is specifically
approved by the legislature."
Chairman Williams of the com
mission takes the position that the
law authorizing a new seal is suffic
ient to make the design the official
seal of the state without further ac
tion after the design is filed with the
governor and is transmitted to the
secretary of state.
The commission has not completed
its design and has made no final re
port to the governor. What is to be
included in the design remains an
official secret. The details will not be
definitely known until the design is
prepared by Bertram G. Goodhue of
New York, architect for the state
capitol commission. It is reported,
however, that about all that the
seal commission will retain of the
present seal Is the anvil. The com
mission is of the opinion there is
nothing In the present seal emble
matic of Nebraska today. It proposes
to leave out whatever is historical in
the design.. It is to be based on the
rules of 'heraldry. Critics allege there ;
is nothing on earth more absolete
than heraldry. The commission de

"About eight tenths of the story is
false and probably two tenths may,in anmi truth " enid T.. P.. Ober-
contain some truth," said L. C. Ober

asked about the charges made by the
American Legion that ex-service men

inadeauate food and lack of care ow-
ing to the fact that only one physic
Ian and one assistant are employed.
Chairman Katherine F. Worley
and A. E. Allyn, members of the
board of control, said . the board
would go to the institution this week
and make an investigation and that
a report of the board's findings would
be made public. All members of the
board said such a report was due the
public in view of the facf that
charges had been published by Amer
ican Legion members.
In regard to the origin of the com
plaint against the food and care of
soldiers some members of the board
are inclined to lay the blame upon
an ex-service patient.
"He tried to elope with one of the
girls at the Institution, but we pre
vented the getaway and the man in
the case has been trying to make
trouble," said a member of the board.
The board declined to give the name
of the patient leferred to. It is said

ed hurriedly, "I don't know." and
shutting the door of his automobile,
he drove off with Mr. Griffith and

A few minutes later Lord Birken

appearance suggested that the strain
of the conference had been severe.
