North 24* h St.,
Replying t«> your letter of May
27th will state that I have given the
matt nr referred to in your letter close
consideration and in 1932 and also in
1933 this district will receive the high
«e*t percentage of reduction of any
resurlentisl district in Omaha and I
think the district has been treated
Yours very truly,
Sam K. Greenleaf,

Mr. Sam K. Greenleaf,
'Court H< u-e.
I have your letter of June 5th in
reply to my one of May 27th, thank,
ing you for all considerations given
** regards to a community that has 1
Wen held down relative to employ,
went, and taxed beyond their propor
tion of income.
We realize the tax reduction of 1932
and *33, a total of approximately 38
pew» nt You also state this is the
highest percent of reduction in any j
resident sal district of Omaha, which
way be true, but not so taking into
‘consideration the vast numbers of un.
employed and the average salary re.
• served by those who are working,
'cmapared with the salaries of individ
uals of other communities.
I believe y*u mean to be fair with
an. never doubting the veracity of the !
internal attitude of anyone, but not
firing in „ position as I, it is impos.
airle for you to really know this
-community and its situation. It is
your civic duty to interest yourself
nngarding this matter and to make a
personal investigation of same.
We fully believe that you will, and
pcnording to the economic situation
of today with this district, you will
reconsider and give them a reduction
of 60 percent or more. We live in a
■district that has ben continually de
-rued their prorata of employment and
always placed at the bottom of the
fist regarding same, yet paying taxes
in proportion to others, and in some
instances a higher rate.
Thanking you again for further in
wedtigations you may make, and
hoping you will reconsider this reduc
tion. I am

DOINGS AMONG THE AMATEURS
On out and round in this man’s
| league, we find things just the re
verse. You remember something to
this effect, U. P. Boosters—14, Hol
mes 3. Cudahy Rex—6. Globe Trot
ters, 5. Wei, on this 2nd spree just
turn the thing around only leave the
playing grounds the same. For now
those up and at em Holmes have done
nothing else but run the Rex into a
tie for 2nd place. Do you know that
they have whipped everything in the
league soundly except the Trotters.
This Sunday will find their big guns
set for them. What the opposing
heads have up their sleeves remains
to be seen.
The Holmes returned to the Boos
ters what they received in the first
encounter. They ran Bud Lawson
until his tongue hung out. They hop
ned on Doc Manger for 5 runs then
took John Lowe for 7 more and were
i calling for G. Davis when the game
was called. Holmes 12. Booster 5.
Globe Trotters Take Lead
The South Side Globe Trotters
showed to the fans that they can take
a lead and at least hold it long enough
to win a game. Bit Red, manager of
Dago’s. McClutcheons choice was in
vincible for 5 innings. Then Big Red
sad red. Hodges singled to right. Hil
ton walked, Smith tripled to left cen
ter. Wakefield was hit by a pitched
ball. Woodruff singled. Kirksey singl
ed good by Big Red, Hello Crump.
Trotters 5. Rex 3.
Jimmie Milota, Muny Secretary
was present. Fry hit one straight a
way for a single. “That’s the way I
like to see them go", says Jimmie.
How did you like our behavior?
Holmes was Richie was off form Sun
day not playing his usual good game.
Ernie made several costly errors.
Lawson lost heart on Smith’s hit and
allowed it to go for a ho (1) mer.
Grays’ hitting is improving, almost
Trirg of the Boosters has a sore
pedal. Limps a little.
Stanley is on the job. Keeps bench
es free of visitors and fines players
if caught smoking in uniforms.
!Wakefield batted 1000. getting 4
hits. Being hit twice by pitched balls
and getting a single and a triple.
Arvin let Freddie’s drive go thru
his hands for three bases.
Kirksey had the Rex shut out for
venin innings two errors took the
strain off the packers.
Liggins looks good in right field
for the Trotters.
Hilton went deep into center field
to take a throw from fellows to stop
Clements at the plate. Clement hit a
terrific smash into deep center send
ing Fellows to the fence. Clem tried
to make a homer out of it. Fell short
by inches, Kirksey taking the throw
KEEP THE BREEZES
ALL SUMMER LONG
Keep gentle, cool breezes blowing in your
home all day long every day of the hot sum

is less than a cent an hour. Cheap enough
for a steady breeze in summer time! - ;

Seme of Stunts at the Air Races, at Muny Field
Half the fun in any game or en
tertainment is knowing what is ,;oing
on. Here is a diagram explaining
some of the stunts to be seen at the
third annual Omaha Air races, to be
held at Municipal airport on Friday,
Saturday and Sunday of this week.
These will be performed by experts
in addition to the high-speed races,
parachute drops and other thrills of
the Air Races.
Omaha, Nebr., June 14—The city
of Omaha has been besieged and lit
! erally captured by aircraft during the
past two days, but the occasion is not
warlike. It’s the opening of the third
annual Omaha Air Races, to be con
ducted Friday, Saturday and Sunday
of this week at the Omaha municipal
airport. Two hundred planes will be
on hand during the meet, dozens of
them competing in the various events.
Each day’s program, beginning at
2 o'clock in the afternoon, will have
some special features, climaxing with
the two-man, two.mile high, delayed
opening parachute jump on Sunday
afternoon, in which Clem Sohn and
Wayne Wagner drop within 1,000 feet
of the ground before pulling the rip
cords to open their parachutes. The
9,000 foot sheer drop of their bodies
takes only a few moments, but it is
the outstanding thrill of the meet,
with thousands heaving a sigh of re
lief when the daring jumpers open
the ’chutes and break their dizzy
Speed races, with contestants zoom
ing around the triangular course at
over 200 miles per hour, will feautre
Johnny Livingston, Art Davis, Mar

Lund, world’s greatest woman stunt
flier; Frank Faulkner, tutor of the
“educated autogyro”, and George Bur

10 pasenger tri-motor Ford airplane,
are other feature performers, as are

pane, “Goofus”, and many other dis- '

sweet piece of baseball. Something

Holmes Give Trotters Scare
In the night cap at 32nd and Dewey
last Sunday, Holmes’ up and at em
Tailors played the daylights out of
the Globe Trotters althuogh the score
was tied twice it does not necessar
ily mean that the Trotters were not
playing ball for they were. But there
is a natural feeling toward the stron
ger team that they should show
strength, now when a seemingly
weaker team plays against a club in
the Trotters strength as did the Hol
mes Sunday and taking into consid
eration the gait the Tailors have been
traveling, the odds would favor the
Holmes hence we say the Holmes
played the Trotters hard.
Lawson and Lane Suspended
The hammer has fallen on two boys
for 3 years, Soup Lawson and Ed
Lane, causes deleted.
Yes, it was a shame that such poor
sportsmanship should show itself as
it did Sunday. Some of the players
overwrought with victory and defeat,
marred the splendid record that Stan
ley’s league had set. We do not want
that kind of foolishness. That is no
representation for a league; none for
the backers ‘ and very poor for the
race. Keep it up. we will be out in
the sticks again.
Mr. Holman, Commander of Col.
Young Post No. 269 American Legion
went out to Dublon Canyon to inter

President Roosevelt in addressing
the graduates of the Naval Academy
at Annapolis, gave some advice that
could be applied to members of our
group who graduate from the acad
emies of higher education, and have
received their diplomas. But this
badge of honor should not imbue them
with a spirit of superior complex,
there can be no argument with a hold
er of a diploma being proud, but not i
to the extent of looking down upon i
his fellows. And as the President says ;
“Esprit de corps, pride of profession,
is as delightful and imperative an el
ement in the making of a good officer
as it is in the making of a good pro
fessional or business man but when it
is carried to the point of assuming
that only the holder of an Annapolis
commission or diploma, or the pos
sessor of a college degree is a valid
member of the aristocracy of life, it
becomes a hindrance instead of a help
to your service, to the Government,
and to your fellow citizens.” These
words spoken to graduates from a
school noted for its snobs can well fit
snobs of our group who form their
little admiration societies with their
exaggerated sense of importance.
Some people are wondering what
was behind the scenes of Roosevelts
move to change the law, which re
quires a resident of Hawaii for the
governorship. It will be remembered
that a powerful element were for
stripping the Island of all home rule
and turning the government over to
the military authorities. This was an
aftermath of the lynching. It now
looks as though the Kentucky Colon
els were getting in their work. No
doubt this pleases Mr. Hearst and the
Forteseues and the next Governor the

“What It Means” by David Laur

tinues a pace, the Morgans make big
profits. They let their friends in on
the ground floor. They took advant

losses, and hence paid $11,000,000 in

Congressmen and Senators are hear

organized minority that have votes

FREES MAN ONCE DOOMED
Raleigh, N. C. (CNS) Jeff Morrow

and sentenced to die in the electric
chair but saved from death by former
Governor Gardner, who commuted the
sentence to life imprisonment, ha#
been paroled by Governor Ehring
haus. The parole was granted and
Morrowr walked out of prison last
week a free man on recommendation
of Judge Henry A. Grady.
Judge Grady who tried the case and
William B. Umstead the solicitor,
joined in the recommendation. The
former stated that he did all he could
in his charge to cause the jury to ac
quit the man. Evidence developed
that the white woman consented to
the intercourse, and Judge Grady said
the prisoner was not guilty of rape,
and that the time he had served was
entirely adequate for the crime he
“The trial resulted in a verdict
which shocked both me and the solic
