Others spoke of the "popular fallacy" that
housewives could make bread more eco

professional bakers. It waa shown that

came out squarely agalnat bleached flour
and master bakers' associations all

PROSPECTUS OF UNIVERSITY

Folly That Length of Time Will B
Spent by Board in Deliberation.
It prohar.lv will b a month before the
cointy commissioners award the .contract
for the building of the new court hoa.e.
The et act on th"lr part has been to
instruct Commissioner Bedford, chairman
of the mmrritiee on construction, to write
to the four lowest bidders asking them to
state w?iat buildings they have erected and
where. In recent years. Answers received,
the supervisors or others for whom the
contractors worked In these rases will be
asked for Information regarding the con
tractors. Meantime the special committee to which
the bids were turned over has completed
It tabulation and discovered no discrep
ancies or anything different from the way
the bids appeared when read Monday.

Is building, and were highly Impressed br
However, the claims of all the low bid

That the work will be let to a single con

general opinion Is favorable to such a pro

Omaha enjoined from proceeding with the

Hugh Murphy, a prominent contractor and

City Engineer Rosewater and John B

the w.-rk was t4"t more than that of the
National Construction company, among
whose members are W. S. King and Tom

the prominence of the men Involved, the
