given last evening at the M. W. A.
hall by the pupils of Mrs. -A. D. Cald
jwell, in violin work, Mrs. Edna Mar
shall Eaton in voice and Mrs. Chris
j tine Coughlin in piano. The recital
was one that reflected the greatest
credit on the young people taking
part as well as the instructors who
have so carefully trained the young
people in their various musical stu
dies. The hall had been well and artis
tically arranged for the occasion
with a profusion of the flowers of
early summer and the relatives and
friends of the participants filled the
hall to overflowing and their de
light at the cleverness of the per
formers was evinced by the contin
ued applause that the various young
artisls won by their playing.
The opening number was the "Lar
go," by Handel, played by the striner
ensemble composed of the pupils of
Mrs. Caldwell and consisting of Grace
Linder, Mrs.. O. Sandin. 1st violins;
Margaret Sitzman, Effia Patterson,
Violet Begley, Marie Horn, George
Caldwell, 2nd violins; Mrs. Frank
Gobelman, viola; Mrs. Sherman Cole,
'cello; Helen Farley, double bass.
and was given very artistically by
the members of the string orchestra.
The program consisted of twenty
five numbers,' well divided between
the violin, voice and piano, and was
one that afforded all of the partici
pants a great opportunity to dem
onstrate their skill.
The piano pupils participating
were Esther Sliindeibower, Aurelia
Reichstadt. Wilma Pickard, George
Rebal. Elizabeth Hatt, Jean Cald
well, Raymond Smith. Fern Jahrig,
Wilma Decker and in their solo num
bers the young people showed a very
pleasing appreciation of the music
and an exceptional clearness in their
playing. Misses Dora Soennichsen
and Fern Jahrig were heard in a
pleasing duet, and Jean Caldwell,
Wilma Pickard and Elizabeth Hatt
in a trio that pleased the audience
to the utmost. Mrs. Christine Cough
lin the instructor of the young peo
ple, has certainly secured splendid
results in the course of instruction
and even the smallest members or
the class showed the greatest skill.
The violin pupils of Mrs. Caldwell
showed wonderful touch and artistic
ability in their various numbers giv

HEARING IN THE
State Opens Action in Attempt to
Fix Charge of Illegal Borrow
ing on Bank President.
Prom Satur Jay's Daily.
This morning the preliminary
hearing of the charge that the State
of Nebraska through the office of the
attorney general, has preferred
against Charles C. Parmele, former
president of the Bank of Cass Coun
ty, was taken up in the county court
with Hon. William Deles Dernier of
Elmwood, acting county Judge, oc
cupying the bench.
The charges embrace sixteen
counts and include the claim of ille
gal borrowing as well as taking up
the matter of overdrawing the ac
counts of the defendant at the bank.
The state was represented by Jack
son Chase, assistant attorney gener
al, while Mr. Parmele was defend
ed by JO. A. Rawls of this city, and
John Wright of Omaha, associate of
former Justice J. J. Sullivan, ami
one of the leaders of the Omaha bar.
The first witness called in the
case was It. F. Patterson, who was
connected with the Bank of Cass
County from 1900 to the close of the
institution on December 13, 1921,
and ranging from his work as clerk
to the position of cashier, which he
occupied at the time of the closing
of the banking house.
They had an auto load of the rec
ords of the defunct bank present at
the hearing and introduced in evi
dence the ledger accounts of Will
Jean, personal, the firm of Jean &
Co., and Charles C. Parmele, as the
state has alleged that the borrow
ing was made through the firm of
Jean & Co., of ,which it is claimed
Mr. Parmele was a member. Mr. Pat
terson's testimony was devoted to
the identification of the records and
the various items which were charg
ed to the accounts of Jean & Co., and
Will Jean as well as Mr. Parmele.
and covered the entire morning and
the noon recess found Mr. Patterson
still on the stand under the cross
examination of Mr. Wright.
The defense in their cross exami
nation sought to show that the rec
ords of deposits were strictly those
of money an dnot other property or
security and also questioning the en
teries on certain of the records.
The state will also have Will Jean
on the stand in the case to attempt
to show how the funds were procur
ed and their use.
The hearing will probably run over
until Monday to complete the tak
ing of the evidence.
