Germans to Build
New Concert Hall
construction of a concert hall Is being
proposed by the Muslk Vereln, which ws
recently organised to combine all of th.
German singing societies In Omaha. The
matter of building was suggested at a
business meeting o' the vereln held Mon
lsy evening. It is felt that sufficient
money to build a concert hall could be
readily secured from the members of the
organisation, and plans looking toward
that end are now under way. One plan
is to buy a building and remodel it to suit
the needs of the organisation, and the
other plan Is to erect an entirely new
hulldlng. Plans will take more definite
form as soon a report can be made on the
amount of money that could be raised.
The recently elected officers of the
vereln were Installed at the meeting la M
evening, and the ceremony was foliow-i
by ft social hour of song and rpeech. Tli
new officers are: Otto Strehlow, pr.s
dent: Dr. R. S. Lucke. first vice pre,
dent: Peter Melcholrs, second vice pie:;.
lent; Fred Daiker. financial secretary.
George Rahm, recording and correspond
ing secretary; W. H. Buchols. treasurer.

Priests of Pallas
Parade is Abandoned
Kansas City has been forced to abandon
Its annual Priests of Pallss parade, an
attraction that Is to that city what the
Ak-Sar-Iten paKeant is to Omaha. The
Metropolitan Street railway evT since
the Priests of Pallas have given electrical
parades, has furnlhed the den and the
trucks upon which the flouts were con
structed and permitted the Ufe of Its
tracks and power therefor. The com
pany has declined to encourage or assist
the Priests of Pallaa this year, and It l
nectary, therefore, for the directors to
announce that It cannot Rive the elec
trical parade this year. The Priests of
Pallas will Rive the usual Priests of Pal
las ball and the mask ball with the hai
leT. and expect to distribute a hand
some souvenir. It Is the Intention to fur
nish a substitute attraction for the
parade, but juM what that will be has
not been decided.
Oas Commissioner Crowley has bren
delvlns; Into gas reports of wveral dtlf
and has come to the conclusion that
Omaha consumers ought to iav not more
than 90 cents to $1 06 for Ha now cowt-
Ihk from $1.15 to $1 20 per UH cubic feet.
"This Is bad on theory." said Mr
Crowley, "and might not work out. I
have taken, however, only the city of
Omaha and have not considered Florence,
!unde or 8 uth Omaha, which would
make the theory n ire piactlcal, as the
same plant FUpplPm all four cities."
