WANT TAX LEVIED ON VALUES Woild Have, Complete Socialisation of All Collectively Used Indus tries Socialism la Its En tirety Is Needed. 'Immediate Relief for Unemployed" was the subject of discission at the Wednesday night meeting of the Omaha socialists. State and government pro ductive . enterprises, reclamation, refor estation i, and permanent road building were proposed as proper and profitable solutions of the problem. The socialists arranged to appoint a committee to draft a plan of action to be submitted to the legislature this win ter. Methods of financing the projects pro posed as a means of doing away with unemployment were discussed and some of the things proposed wero: Direct Issue of government notes that would be full legal tender. A tax on land values. And, chiefly, the complete socializa tion of all collectively used Industries. There "was a unanimous opinion that conditions would only be temporarily and Partially Improved until socialism in its entirety was seoured. However, th members attending the meeting agreed that . "reforms" under capitalism should be taken as it was possible to secure them, rather than to spurn-every effort at, alleviation until the whole socialist plan could be adopted. Hans Nielsen Has Unusual Experience With Angora Feline "Hurry quick, ' there is - somebody Is being murdered out here!" The preceding cry waa sent through the telephone at police headquarters and a wagon load of stalwart "bulls" rushed to Fortieth and Redlck avenue, from where the appeal started. Amongst the number was Hu mane Officer Hans Nielsen, with with "cannon" la hand, led the charge into the home of Ralph White, next door to where the appeal was sent from. As Hans approached the window the cries increased In vigor. Hans cautiously opened the aperture and was Immediately struck In the face by a furry ball. Following this onslaught th cries ceased. Further investigation on the part of Hans and his fellow "bulls" revealed the staitllng fact that Mr. and Mrs. Ralph White left before Christmas to visit relatives In South Dakota; that be fore leaving they took their Angora cat to a friend's home in Florence; that th cat ran away, came back home, gained entrance to th house and then forgot how t get out again. Han speaks Danish fluently, and there being a number of women present, ad dressed the cat In this language most vigorously.

As Detective Johnnie Dunn and Patrol man Sch wager reached the last step go ing down, they heard a board move be hind the furnace. , "Come on out of there, fellow! We've got you covered!" both exclaimed, cock ing their pistols. Police Chauffeur Lester Warner and Motorcycle Officer I,yman Wheeler, who were guarding the front and rear of th home, moved in at the sound of their comrade's voice. , "Come on out, I say!" repeated Dunn and Schwager. The "burglar" walked slowly out from behind the furnace, blinked sleepily at the police searchlights and then uttered a discordant "quack." It was the New Year's dinner for the family and the duck had escaped from Its crate.
