Kearner Jurist Says neennse Job

(From a Staff Correspondent)
LINCOLN, Nov. 3. 8peclal.)-Judg
W. D. Oldham of Kearney, one ot the
members of the committee selected by
the people of that town to draft reso
lutions condemnatory of the action ot the
state normal board' In dismissing Presi
dent A. O. Thomas of the Kearney Nor
mal without a hearing, was at the state
houso this morning and In conversation
ivtth a representative of The Bee said
that Ihe people of Kearney wero behind
Dr. Thomaa to a man In the matter.
"Dr. Thomas has lived In our town too
long and we know him too well," sold
tho Judge, "to allow the state normal
board to pull off anything of that kind
on us. Look at the way Dr. Thomas has
built up that school. Why, it Is recog
nized as tho best one tn the state, and
even tho state normal members ot the
board who voted to oust Dr. Thomaa
admit that he has made a success of the

of affairs when any set of men, be'thcy
educators or what they may be, who can
take an action which may cripple a state

centive is there to any man in charge
ot one of our educational Institutions to
work hard to build up his Institution if
he knows that he was to be thrown out

Nothing; to Charges.
"Had there been anything whatever to
the charges made against Dr. Thomas
It would have been different, but there
wns nothing to them whatever. If I
had gone Into cburt with a petition
which had no moro foundation to It than
tho charges made by the board against
Thomas, the Judge would have promptly
ruled It out because thero was nothing
"Take It down to a nutshell, the charges
brought by tho board nre that Dr.
Thomas had been offered the position
of chancellor of the Arkansas university
according to the board's understanding
from his statement. They looked the
matter up and Tlalm they dlsoovered that
he had not actually been offored the Job.
"Upon these grounds they remove him
from tho institution and expect the
people ot tha state to stand behind them.
Did you ever hear of anything more
foolish? Our investigation of thosa
charges based upon letters, received by
Dr. Thomas and now In his possession
snow that Dr. Thomas was considered
for the position, and the only thing that
stood in his way was that they wanteq
Dr. Klrklaad of Vand'erbllt university 'It
theyoould-get lilm.-but that If ho was
not avallablo, Dr. Thomas' Was the man.
Letters also show that Dr. Thomaa would
have been selocted had it riot been for
letters sent to the boatd'by certain men
ir. Nebraska who seemed o be determined
to not only put Thomas out. of business
in Nebraska but also Ot follow him Into
other stateB and prevent him from get
ting a positton which his qualifications
eminently fitted hint for.
No SnTtnir Feature.
"As I look at it and as we look at It
out in Kearney, there was ft rotten deal
put up to Thomas out of business and
because tho deal was put up by men In
high places and with good reputations
does not In any way tako from It Its
unholy character nor mayo sweeter the
decomposed aroma which arises from the
"Dr. Thomas will stick and don't you
forget it If tho board wants to tako
legal action we will hallow-tin delight the
opportunity it will give' us to go Into
court and show up the whole deal."
Judge Oldham sold that the people out
over the state had little conception of the
way the people of the Buffalo county cap
ital and the people ot th'at section of the
state felt over the matter. He said that
they had seen Dr. Thomas take hold ot
the school when It was new and build It
up to Its present standard and while they
recognized the fact that the great success
he had made might be responsible some
time for his leaving to a larger field, they
wanted to see him go from the school
