MATTER OF TEN DOLLARS
Tee Governor Shallenberger Accepted
EXECUTIVE EOT HTVTSTIGATHJG
little Likelihood He Will-Be Disposed
to Look Deeply Into Salary
l Arrrrurr f Normal
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Jan.. 10. -(Special.) Though
Governor Rhallenberger announced that he
Intended to look Into the matter of the
normal school paying a yearly salary to
Luther P. Ludden ai secretary of the
board with the Intimation that he might
remove Mr. Ludden from membership on
the board, the safe bet la the matter will
rest right there,, i
Aa secretary of the board Mr. Ludden
la drawing a salary with the advice and
consent of Former Attorney General Norris
Brown.' Previous- to the time that opinion
waa verbally given, Auditor Wesson held
up voucher filed by Superintendent Fow
ler for services aa ' secretary and that
bill waa paid upon the advice of then
Attorney General Prout.
But there are other reasons why It la
believed the governor will not remove any
members of that normal board. In the
first place a hearing either through the
courts or before the governor would have
to be given the members which the gover
nor would like to remove from the board.
Should auch a hearing atart, then the
board members could get back at his ex
tellency by .demanding of him by what
right he accepted $10 for delivering a lec
ture to the students of the Kearney Normal
school, the amount being advanced by
Superintendent A. O. Thomas and repaid
to him by the board. This amount was
supposed to be for expenses, when aa a
matter of ,-fact according to a member of
the board, the normal school furnished
an automobile to- bring the governor to
th phrnil from h neighboring town.
Talk of probable action on the part of
the aovernor was revived by a statement
made to the board at Alnsworth. This man
aM O'Neill would not endorse Alnsworth
(if cause some of the cltixens of the Holt
county town said the governor expects to
remove tha present 'board and O'Neill
would get the school, regardless of the
action of tha board. ,
Tho governor la still out of the city
and Is not expected to return until Thurs
day. 1 ,

fathers a good slxe riot Is about to break
loose around the state house. The doors
of the state house have been locked to the

The occasion for this lockout against the

CHANCE FOR MICHIGAN GAME
Edict of "Bif Eight" Bars Minnesota
from Playing Yostites. ,
LATTER MAY TAKE ON NEBRASKA
Athletic Director at Wolverine School
rrosnlses Eager First Favor If
Order Sticks aa Indications
Are It Will.
LINCOLN, Jan. 10. (Special.) Talk of a
foot ball game between r-ieDrasKa ana
Michigan next fall has been revived by
the announcement from Chicago, the center
of the western conference's publicity bu
reau, that the "Big Eight" will not permit
Minnesota to play Its scheduled game with
the Wolverines unless the Ann. Arbor colle
gians agree to live up to the conference
Minnesota is bound to Michigan by a
two years' contract,. 1910 being the final
season, and is Doojtea to men wie ui-,
verlnes In Ann Arbor next November.
Michigan Incurred' the wrath of the ma
jority leaders of the "Big Eight," how
ever, by refusing to re-enter the western
conference fold, and the league's leaders,
to get revenge on the Ann Arborites, Is
sued an edict to Minnesota last week to
the effect that the Gophers would have to
cut Michigan off their schedule or be ostra
cised from "Big ElRht" society.
To be "cut cold" by the "Big Eight"
would mean to Minnesota the lass of both
Chicago and Wisconsin from Its foot "ball
schedule for this year. Without these two
schools the Gopher schedule would be any
thing but an attractive one. Then, too. It
probably would-be a failure financially.
So It Is plain that Minnesota cannot afford
to miss the chance of playing Chicago and,
Wisconsin, even If the alternative be a
game with the famous Wolverine band;
and the only wise course for the northern
school to follow will be to let Michigan
drop for this year.
This action has been advised by the
Gopher board of control and It Is likely
to be accepted by the foot ball manage
ment of the northern school. The absence
of Minnesota from the Michigan schedule
will give the Ann Arbor BChool an open
date that partly has been promised to the
Cornhuskers and that Is pretty certain to
be offered to them again.
Mlrhlaaa Offers Game.
Early last fall Jhe Michigan management
Informed Manager Eager that Nebraska
might be given a place on the 1910 Wol
verine ecTtedule. and the Cornhuskers were
strongly considered until the Ann Arbor
athletic board signed up with Pennsylvania
for another year.' Then the Michigan
schedule was filled, unless Minnesota should
have to abandon Its game.
Manager Eager made a special trip to
Chicago during the Christmas recess to
see Athletic Director Bartelme of Michi
gan regarding a 1910 game with the Wol
verinea and was told at that time that
the Cornhuskers would have to wait at
least anothor year for a chance to meet
the Michigan players, unless Minnesota
refused to play, it was then known that
the "Big Eight" was considering some ac
tion that might prevent Minnesota's carry
ing out Its contract with Yost's eleven.
Director Bartelme, In no uncertain terms,
told Manager Eagpr that Nebraska would
have the first chance at a game with
Michigan in case Minnesota had to back
out of its agreement.
Now, since the "Big Eight" has served
Its mandator notice on the Gophers, Ne
braska's chances of getting ths muctde
slred contest with the Wolverines are
thought to be excellent. There has been
no official move by Minnesota toward tell
ing Michigan that It cannot be played next

Aside from the legitimacy of the reductions, one of. the chief
differences between this sale and so many other sales about town
lies in the number of garments you have to choose from.
Instead of two or three tables partly filled we have an entire
clothing floor devoted to this sale.
Having so many times the assortment contained In ny other
"sale" to choose from, perhaps, accounts for the fact that we
have had so many times the number of customers to deal with.
In spite of the fact that we sold more clothing on Saturday
and Monday than any two stores In town, we still have easily
three times the assortment any other store started their sale with.
With these Indisputable facts confronting you, and the fact
that never has the finger of suspicion been pointed toward our
methods or prices, don't you think .that this store should claim
jour attention when yon set out to save half your clothes moneyr.
