Writ Compels South
Omaha Election to
Be HeldThis Spring
Judge Kennedy yesterday ordered the
Iteu of a writ of mandamus compelling
the officials of South Omaha to conduct a
primary election' this spring. The offl
oisls have Interpreted th new charter
bill to mean that th election shall be
weld Jn mi, but th Judge rule that
it shall be bold this spring.
In tbs petition of Tom Hoctor end
others for a mandamus writ compelling
the South Omaha officials to hold a pri
mary election the constitutionality ot the
entire charter bill was attacked. Judgs
Kennedy did not pass upon th constitu
tionality of ths entire law, but only upon
the validity ot three sections which deal
with the election matter. He held that
the mandamus for a primary election was
all that waa In Issue at this time and held
that the sections which extend th terms
of the present officials for one year Is
Invalid because It is special legislation.
After th election the constitutionality
of th law will be tried out in th courts.
