should be compelled to keep them within

After Barber Skaas.
An ordinance Is being prepared by the
city attorney's ofr.ee. at the Instance of
Councilman Kugel, that la Intended to
make the barber shops of Omaha sanitary
and clean' all the year round.
. The ordinance will provide that barber
colleges must put out signs showing just
what they are, so that people wanting
hlgh-elaee barber work done will not get
Into practice shops. The ordinance wtll
also give the health commissioner general
supervision over the barber simps in the
matter of cleanllneaa and sanitation.
Councilman Kugel aaya the proposed or
dinance Is the outcome of complaints that
have been msds against carelessness on
the part of barbers running shops tn cer
tain sections of the city. "1 believe the
barbers will welcome the law," aaid Mr.
Kugel. "It may bit a sore spot hers and
there, but every barber shop should be
kept In apple pie order, and to do so will
mean Increased trade for ail." .

Lees, "regarding optometry whereby two
classes of optiuians were created. One by
exemption, the other by examination. The

be granted theae.
