Literary aad Debating; Societies Hold
First Meet I age Viae the
The literary and debating aoclet(es of the
high school met Friday afternoon for the
first time since tbe holidays. Most of tlis
organisations presented interesting literary
programs. Two meetings were postponed
on account of the Illness of the students
who were to participate.
The Ciceronian society held a business
meeting to reorganise for the remainder
of the school vear. Mark Bavtdxe was
elected president; Howard Roa, vice presi
dent; Herbert Keasler, secretary; Sidney
Smith, treasurer; Oscar wegner, serges ni-
at-arm. and Roy Browneii, reporter.
In the Browning society the program
wes on 'Ballads." with Ruth Byera as
leader. The subject was considered In all
Its branches by Ruth Byers, Doris Wood,
Blanche Cohn. Irene. Bmlth. Hssel Degen
and Nell Carpenter. . Klsie Bolln read the
Oracle, and much attention waa attracted
to the society's bulletin board by a poster
drawn by Doris Wood..
Tbe drawing department room was used
by the Prlscllla Alden girls for their pro
gram, which began with a delightful violin
solo by Verna Hsyes. A play entitled "The
Trouble at Satterlee's." was then presented,
th principal or mi
Miss Jennie Licknoskl, 810 North Twen
ty-second street, met with a serious ac
cident at I p. m. yeterday. "he wa
struck by a heavy automobile at Twenty-
fourth and L atreets. The car was driven
by James Plank, a chaffeur of the Kimball
Garage of Omaha. The car waa bound
ro Fort Crook and moving at a pretty
rapid gait It carried Lieutenant Sidney
Smith and his wife of the fort garrison.
Mlsa Llcknookl stepped off the street car,
which was also southward bound, and di
rectly In front of the tar. It struck her
with such force that she was raised from
the ground snd fell on the automobile.
Ehe rolled off to the street. The driver
ran the car Into the curb In his effort to
stop and to avoid the accident. The
young woman was carried into A. De
Lanney's florist establishment. She was
attended by Dr. K. L.. DeLanney, the city
physician. He said no bones' ware broken.
but that Internal Injuries might develop.
It will require twelve hour or mort to
ascertain how seriously she Is Injured.
8he waa taken to ber horn about three
hours after th Injury.
Many complaints have been lodged with
the South Omaha police concerning the
speed with which automobile travel on
Twenty-fourth etreet between the two
ctttes. This, however. Is the first serious
accident for nearly two years. Farther
north, between the city limits and J
street, the autos often get up a terrific
speed. It Is likely that the police may
take steps to stop the practice of scorch
ing In Houth Omaha.
Candidate la tha Field.
The week closed with several new po
litical candidates In the field for th pri
mary election. C. A. Melclier filed a dem
ocratic candidate for city treasurer. H. T.
