have made her a net profit of $2.33
per hen, for the last six months be
ginning November 1, 1921. For the

10.782 eggs. The total sale was!
1432.97, the total feed cost S 63.50,!
leaving a net profit of $369.37. Many!
people make a profit from poultry but
never keep a record of sales and cost.
If you have such a record send it in
the the Farm Bureau. We want all
records on poultry. Mrs. Norris be
gan to build up her flock three years
ago, through a Cass county Farm Bu
real poultry demonstration. Now she
has an accredited farm flock. She

EDLEGISLATION Farm Bureau Drafts Tentative List
of its Reforms Four Amend
ments Part of Program.
Tentative draft of the legislative
program of the Nebraska Farm Bu
reau Federation has been made by
the legisjative committee. During the
next few weeks the twenty-one
points in the program will be pre
sented at meetings of county and
precinct officials of the Farm Bureau
to be followed by precinct meetings
at which the members themselves
will be asked to discuss each pro
posal point by point.
The majority expression on each
subject at these precinct meetings
will be the controlling factor on each
point as to whether or not it will be
a part of the program.
When the program is finally com
pleted it will be the expressed opin
ion of the Nebraska Farm Bureau di
rect from the individual members a3
to what the next legislature should
do for the farmers of this state. The
program will be in the hands of the
people in plenty of time that they, if
they wish, may learn where their
legislative candidates stand on the
The tentative program calls for
four constitutional amendments to
be initiated by the legislature, to
permit the enactment of a rural real
estate credit law, smilar to. the fed
eral land bank law; permit classifi
cation of tangible property for taxa
tion; permit the legislature by a
two-thirds vote to change the salar
ies of state officials during any term
and to provide for taxation of mu
nicipal property where used as a pub
lic utility and the taxation of bonds
and securities of the various govern
mental subdivisions now exempt.
Along the lines of direct legisla
tive action the Farm Bureau asks for
a state income tax law; to enable. or
ganization of a farmers' Jnance cor
poration; compel public utilities to
pay taxes on their rate making val
ue; mandatory publication of tax returns,-
township boards of equaliza
tion"; -repeal Smith mortgage law; to
seek aid of other states In termina
tion of federal aid road policy; larg
er portion of automobile license mon
ey to be left at disposal of county
boards; tax sufficient to pay trans
portation of school children attend
ing school while remaining at home;
continuation of appropriation for in
demnities in eradication of bovine
tuberculosis and agricultural exten
sion and if - necessary, amendments
to the present law to continue state
operation of a hog cholera serum
plant; state civil service law; state
to. buy land sold for taxes; laws or
constitutional amendments so that
each county thru a' charter conven
tion may formulate the kind of gov
ernor it may want,1 leaving it option
al to adopt the county manager form
of government, or commission form;
waterpower development by the state
and simplification of: the work re
quired to be taught in grade schools.

To learn of a young man stepping
out with the chickens is not an un
usual event, but when it is the real
barnyard feathered variety it is wor
thy of comment. This is what one
Plattsmouth young man is accused
of doing and in fact the "charge is
made that the aforesaid young man
was discovered peacefully asleep by
the members of his family, amid
the feathered beauties.
How this occurred is a long story
that covers a great many adventures
on the part of the victim from the
time that he first quaffed the flow
ing bowl of Nebraska's greatest pro
duct corn; until the awakening.
The exact circumstances that led to
the youth seeking the hen house for
a place of repose is veiled in deep
mystery and in fact he does not know
himself how it happened, which is
proof that the corn has a kick com
pared to which the mightiest efforts
of a government mule availeth noth
ing. It is safe to say, however, that it
will not occur again and that in fu
ture before starting out to enjoy the
revelry of Bacchus the young man
will see that the hen house is safely
locked, so that entrance is made im
possible and if he must have the so
ciety of chickens it will be of the
flapper variety.
Attorney General Rules This is the
Proper Method May Nomi
nate on July 18th.
Lincoln. May 2C. With Congress
man C. F. Reavis resignation an
nounced as effective June 4th. the
law makes it incumbent on Governor
McKelvie to see that the vacancy is
filled immediately by special election.
.Voters of the First congressional
district will vote on his successor,
who will serve until the regularly
elected congressman of this district
takes office March 4. 1923.
Attorney General Clarence A. Dav
is is of the opinion that the governor
will have to issue a special primary
call to nominate "short term" candi
dates, supplementing the general call
for the July 18 primaries.
Since the primary law does not
provide any means of selection by
convention or otherwise of nominees
for this special election, it is assumed
that the governor will have to let the
primaries decide, and to save expense
of a-special district primary, it is
taken for : granted that the proposi
tion will be submitted at the regular
primaries. -; : , ,
' The 'assumption is reasonable that
the present party candidates for con
grfess in the First district will seek
the short term nomination, officials
at the apitol believe.
The .; special election, therefore,
may become a weather vane to test
party strength in Nebraska before
the general election.
National Convention Adopted Daisy
in Its Stead 0'Connell Tells
of Poppy Exploitation.
Why the American Legion backs
the sale of daisies and withholds it3
support from the poppy campaign is
explained in this statement issued
Friday by Adjutant Frank B. O'Con-
nell of the Legion in Nebraska:
"State headquarters of the Nebras
ka American Legion has received
several inquiries asking if the Legion
endorses the sale of poppies or is in
terested in such sale, as suggested in
the newspapers recently. '
"Most emphatically we are not
Our national convention last year
adopted the daisy as the memorial
flower of the world war. Certain or
ganizations purporting to represent
French children exploited our posts
and the general public to such an ex
tent that we threw the whole outfit
over the transom and adopted van
American flower. Even this year,
after we had decided to use the daisy,
high-salaried salesmen hounded us
for weeks trying to unload their pop
"The Legion buys the daisies for a
little over one cent each and sells
them for a dime. Every bit of this
profit goes to the care of disabled and
decorating the graves of American
dead. Over 100,000 of these daisies
will be worn on Memorial day in Ne
braska alone. They are being used
by the thousands in the decorating
or our graves here in the state and
also in France. Our posts send do
nations direct to' our Paris post and
they take care of the graves over
"For three years now the Legion
has decorated every American grave
in France and every world war veter
an's grave in Nebraska, besides hun
dreds of those of soldiers of other
wars who are burled at these places,
where there is no post of the G. A.
R. or Spanish War Veterans."

State Convention at Lincoln Discloses
Fact that Many Local Orga
nisations Being Formed.
Women are preparing to take a
large part in government in this
state, and to the end that this part
may be taken intelligently the orga
nization of women's voters leagues
is going ahead in many counties of
the state." That much was shown
by reports made at the opening ses
sion of the state meeting Thursday
morning in Lincoln, in faculty hall
at the state university.
The council of the state League of
Women Voters met at 10:30. Mrs.
C. C. Ryan, of Grand Island, state
president of the league, presided at
the meeting which was largely de
voted to routine business. The state
treasurer and state secretary gave
their reports and the president began
her report.
Mrs. Ryan reported a large num
ber of leagues organized over the
state since the last meeting and that
a growing interest in the league and
it3 work has been shown since the
national convention. Many other
women's organizations are lining up
with the work of the league.
Present at the opening session in
the morning were leasue representa
tives from Grand Island, Central
City, Omaha. Hastings, Falls City
and David City as well as numerous
Lincoln members. Among the more
prominent attendants, is Miss Gladys
Pyle, national organizer, of Wash
ington, D. C,
In the afternoon the president's
report was continued and Mrs. C. H.
Dietrich, regional director of the
league, gave a report on the nation
al' convention in Baltimore. Miss
Pyle, the national organizer, spoke
on organization and membership
work, and Miss Bertha Lutz, the
Brazilian visitor, made an informal
talk. A tea was given by the mem
bers of the Lincoln league at Ellen
Smith hall from 4 to 6 o'clock in
honor of Miss Lutz.
Will Assist Attorney General Daugh
erty in Prosecuting Fraudists
In His Fourth Term.
Washington, May 25. Attorney
General Daugherty will assume per
sonal direction of the prosecution of
war fraud cases, it was announced
tonight at the department of justice.
Associated with the attorney gen
eral, the statement said, will be a
number of . "distinguished lawyers
from all parts of the country select
ed for their especial fitness for the
Among these will be Representa
tive C. Frank Reavis of Nebraska,
who will resign his seat in congress
in order to take up his work in June.
Col. Henry W. Anderson, of Rich
mond, Va., the announcement said,
also would assist the attorney gen
eral a3 well as former Representa
tive Roscoe C. McCullough, of Can
ton, Ohio, appointed recently by Mr.
Daugherty to Investigate war can
tonment cases.
The attorney general said he was
not willing to make the names of the
other counsel public at this time.
By assuming direction of the war
fraud cases, Mr. Daugherty said he
would be able to use in the prosecu
tion the salary of $25,000 or $50,000
a year which otherwise would have
to be paid to one special assistant
attorney general under authority of
congress, which "has placed no limi
tation" on the salary to be paid this
official. He decided, the statement
said, "that the work probably would
proceed more satisfactorily if he as
sumed its direction." The assistants
already selected, it was said, are
"men whose incomes in private prac
tice are probably five times as large
as the amount which they will re
ceive for the conspicuous service
they will render to the government
and the people."

One of Trio Brought Here From Se
betha, Kas., Concerning Car
Theft Has a Hearing.
From Saturday's Ialiy.
Yesterday afternoon in the coun
ty court Charles Norton was ar
raigned before Judge Beeson on the
information filed against the pris
oner by County Attorney A. G. Cole,
charging him with -having possessed
concealed weapons contrary to the
peace and dignity of the State of Ne
braska. To the charge preferred the young
man entered a plea of guilty and was
accordingly bound over to the dis
trict court for trial and bond fixed
at $1,000, and in default of the bond
the young man was remanded to the
custody of Sheriff Quinton.
Norton is one of the three brought
here from Kansas, who were held in
connection with the taking of the
car of Jack Neitzel from this city
last Friday night and which was
later found by the authorities at Se
betha, Kansas, and the three men
held in connection with it.
After an investigation of the case
here it was decided that rather than
have the county forced to stand the
costs of a trial in the district court
that would have been necessary to
secure the conviction of the one man
in the case it would serve the ends
of justice as well to place the con
cealed weapon charge on him and
which would avoid the necessity of
a long trial as the prisoner resolute
ly declared his innocence of the
charge of taking the car, and his
stand would have necessitated the
trying of the case before a Jury and
as Mr. Norton was willing to plead
guilty to the concealed weapon
charge this was preferred.
Just what will be the fate of the
two younger members of the trio has
not been determined, but owing to
their youth and the fact that they
are novices in the crook game they
probably will escape much easier, as
their part in the affair was not as
serious as- that of their older com

The Anksr-Holfh Grcam Separator
The Anker-Holth bowl can never get out of bal
ance as the self-shifting discs create a perfect balance of
the bowl. The discs are interchangeable and do not
have to be placed in numerical order as in other makes
of separators.
Old discs can be replaced by new ones which cost
only a f ew cents and the bowl will never have to be
sent to the factory for re-balancing.
The Anker-Holth separator is a self oiling machine,
having no oil cups or oil holes to care for. It will out
last any, other separator, as all the gears and bearings
are continually flushed with oil.
We ask that you call and see this machine on our
floor. Sent out on 30 days trial in competition with
any make separator you may want to select. You to
be the judge and if the Anker-Holth doesn't do the most
for you,' just load it in the car and return to us.
