more or less a matter of keeping the

If these methods fail to make one

A German statistician who has

One way to help make Plattsmoutb
a better city Is to keep your lamp
trimmed and brightly burning.
No matter In what trade, business
or profession in which you are en
gaged, give to that work the best
that is within you, and you will thus
render the community as well as
yourself a splendid service.
When your lamp is trimmed It will
give more light and less smoke.
Also, you won't be ashamed to
carry it In front of you and thus
throw a light ahead and let the
shadow fall behind.
When you get up in the morning
you ought to feel glad that you live
in Plattsmouth.
You ought to feel proud of your
citizenship In the best community in
Nebraska, glad that you can call
Plattsmouth your home, the place
where you live in peace, happiness
and contentment, the place where
your children go to school, the place
where you worship God, the place
where the sunshines and the clouds
never gather.
It's a great thing to show a 100
per cent efficiency in citizenship, and
you can't do it unless you put your
whole heart in it.

Nominal Sums Paid for Them Under
Alien Property Act Claim the
Deal Was Engineered.
Washington, July 1. President
Harding today sprung a sensation
when he ordered the alien property
custodian to recover from the gov
ernment millions of dollars wortli of
patents bought for nominal sums by
the war-formed Chemical foundation.
The president's directions ab!o
went to Attorney General Daugherty
to take "successful steps" following
a lengthy proposal by the department
of justice, appeared to foreshadow
startling developments before the
grand jury. "
The formation of Chemical founda
tion and the purchase by its prime
movers of 4,500 German and other
enemy patents under the alien prop
erty act was engineered by prominent
officials of the Wilson administration,
it is alleged. Attorney General
Daugherty said the action of the
president was fully justified by facts
developed by the department in ite
long investigation.
Directing the recovery of the prop
erty for. the government, the presi
dent in a letter to Col. Thomas W.
Miller, custodian, plainly indicated
that fraud in the sale of the patents
most of them valuable dye patents,
had been shown by the record. The
president said:
"It appears that the sale was made
at so nearly a nominal sum that
there is reason to believe that this
government has not faithfully ob
served the trust 'which was implied
in the seizure of this property.
"The circumstances relating to the
entire transactions are of such a
character that full investigation be
comes a public duty."
The Chemical foundation was or
ganized when A. Mitchell Palmer,
former attorney general of the
United States was alien property
custodian. Francis P. Garvan, of
New York, became president of the
foundation when he retired as alien

Attorney General Daugherty said
the Investigation had proceeded in
the face of much "interference," but

of the affair because the properties
