They have It stored, either In their own

Of course, some of th wheat was con

amount, and when th war cam on th

Harry Christie, who Is not yt completely
well from hi automobile accident of
some months ago, wan not present Sec
retary A. I. Crelgh waa on business In
the western part of the state. So W. H.
Oiaham presided. Someone wanted to
endorse the citizens' ticket for th board
of Education. - Several objected, holding
the exchange was not In th business of
endorsing candidates. Byron Hastings)
made a strong objection. Acting Presi
dent Graham overruled th objection.
Hastings appealed. Harry Wolf sec
onded the appeal. The chair steam
rolled the appeal, saying It could not be
taken on a matter otthia kind. Wolf
called for an exposition of what was the
purpose of the exchange. Acting Secre
tary Hater had to read the preamble of
tho constitution and the bjMaws to
Wolf. There was no mention of th en

Then when th thing grow hot. Wolf
suggested that If th matter waa to go
down as a practical Joke of the exchange
he would vote for It, but If were to be a
serious endorsement an the part of th
exchange he would oppose It
Chairman Graham assured Wolf any

and passed would be a matter of record.

MUNICIPAL JUNK MAN
ONE SUGGESTION MADE
A municipal Junk dealing establishment
waa suggested by F. D. V;ad at the lal
meeting of the Omaha Real Estate ex

problem of plumbing thievery. He told
the exchange that he had lost not lea
than M worth of plumbing this year
through thieves who break Into empty
houses and tear out pipes to sell to Junk
dealers. He Insisted that the exchange
decide on some sort of legislation to cur
tail this practice, and said he did not
know but that a municipal junk dealer
to handle all Junk would go a long way
toward solving th problem, aa then an
accurate tab could be kept on those offer
