mous consent agreement to take up
the soldiers' bonus bill Monday and

into todry by the the senate.
With a view to getting a vote late

whereby its consideration will not be
resumed until the soldiers' bonus bill
has been parsed, probably next Tues

Beating their way through a road
outlined on each tide by burning
underbrush of the recent forest fire
in the vicinity of Eveleth, Minn.,' was
the exciting experience of two Cen

They are Hacrry Habcrstroh, 4028

Twenty-seventh and Hickory street.
Both boy are members of the
Omaha Walking club, 17 of whom
arrive home Monday morning after
a two weeks outing at Lake Ver
milion, Minn. The two boys, how
ever, chose to hike back from Ver
milion lake and it was on their return
trip last week that they encountered
the forest fire.
Warned of Danger.
"Men fighting the fire told us we
were crazy to attempt to wane
through it and I guess they were
right," said Haberstroh, "but we were
anxious to get back home, to we
went ahead, anyway. We were for
tunate to get back alive as a slight
change in wind would have spread
the fire over the road. One-half hour
later the road was closed."
The boys made the round trip of
1 .250 miles in five days going up and
four days coming back. They.had
only $40 between them, and slept out
in the open, under the stars, each

Mr, Townley attempted to show
what he regarded to he the "utter

party in this state. He also spoke
at length of the alleged "tricks" of
the opponents of the league in keep

and even a consideration of the
league's real abns and purposes by
circulating the false cries that it was
favoring "free love," was "pro-German,"
In asking nothing in the way of

Townley urged upon the farmers they

Expects Showdown Sooi
Omaha (See iMaed Wire.
W'atbingioii, Ag. 26 . Legislatior,
empowering the federal government
to take over the railroads and the
anthracite millet will be welcomed
by President Harding before con
gress rrrrsset unlets the llriket are
settled before that lime. Tbit was
declared today by offitiala in f!ose
touch with the White House,
Mr, Harding, it wat explained,
does not expett tu take any hasty
action. He may never make ue of
the authority sought, but be does not
want congress to go away and leave
bun powirlrst to deal with aiiv
emergency whiill may develop in
cither the rail or coal situation.
Mratutet giving the- president au
thority tu assume control of railroad
and mines will be introduced in con
gress within the next few days, un
less the lunation ilrart, it wat dc
Give Road Another Chance.
In conference with senators the
president indicated a willingnei tn
give the railroad executivea further
opportuity to demonstrate that they
can cope with the shopmen's strike
and to prove that they can operate
the roads to an extent nceesary to
meet the nation's traffic needs.
Until it becomese apparent that
a breakdown of transportation is in
evitable, the administration will make
no move to take over the roads. Pres
ident Harding dor not believe thai
that time has yet been reached. Scnu
ators who are keeping a close watch
on developments tay that the next
week will bring a showdown and
demonstrate whether the roads can
continue to operate tuecetsfully.
As for the anthracite ttrike, the
president's position, according to re
sponsible spokesmen, is that another
opportunity should be given the op
erators and miners to get together
before any attempt is made to op
crate the mines under federal con
trol. In administration circles there
is a feeling of confidence that a set
tlement of the anthracite strike will
come soon, notwithstanding the fail
ure of the Philadelphia parley earlier
in the week.
Little Progress Made.
Congress made little progress with
the legislation recommended by
President Harding to relieve the coal
situation, Senator Cummins, Iowa,
called together the senate interstate
commmerce committee, of which he
it chairman, to consider the bill de
signed to designate profits and dis
tribution. Differences of opinion
arose concerning the measure. At
the suggestion of Senator Pomerenc,
