Governor Mickey f has not heard from

neither has he taken any action in the
matter of the protest of Joseph Spells other
than to notify the members of the board of
the receipt of the protest.
The governor Is of he Impression the
police commission laws of Omaha and
South Omaha are. different In that he
believes he can Interfere at the latter place
while he cannot Interfere at Omaha. Today
he notified the legal department h would

or pretends to believe he cannot Interfere
with the board there.
Until the written request Is filed for the
opinion Deputy Attorney General Thomp

charters the legal department is of the

decision, notwithstanding the governor's
