when It was learned that the grand Jury

conditions in South Omaha that would
probably destroy the last hope of the men
who have been expressing their certainty
that the grand Jury would never return

The fight on conditions In South Omaha
has been waged by Attorney Dean
Kinger, who la beginning to loom large
In the public eye as a persistent fighter,
not to be bought or cajoled Into a sur

of South Omaha under the law. Re'
cently the women bf the city began to
take notice of the conditions and now,
even In ths weat and where the gang
boasted control, the women are aflame
over the alleged conditions In political
