'AFTER WILD'S SCALP
Subordinates of State Health Board
Object Because Wild Obeys
the Real Board.
HEARING BEFORE GOVERNOR
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Nov. 9.-(Speclal Telegram.)
If the board of secretaries of the State
Hoard of Health have their way the
rcalp of Dr. Wild, j.state bacterologhit,
will be dangling from their belts and
1 people will not be allowed to bathe In
'the Missouri river nor ride on trains
without a certificate showing that they
have not the smallpox.
Putting those things Into effect may,
however, be not so easy as preparing
the resolutions calling for the state
board to do these things, as the meeting
held in the office of Governor Morehead
this afternoon Indicates that the secre
taries may have some trouble enforcing
Fame of their rules and a areat deal more
trouble getting the scalp of the state
That Increase In. "alary
Charges were made by the secretaries
that Dr. Wild was incorrigible, that he
would not do as they wanted him to do
and that he talked back in harsh tones,
etc They first charged that he was
drawing an increase In salary from $2,000
a year to $2,400 without authority for so
doing because the secretaries had not
recommended the raise. However, the
board remembered that they had raised
the doctor's salary and did not seem to
think that the secretaries had very
much to say about It any way.
The charge made by the secretaries
that the doctor considered himself under
the orders of the taard Instead of under
the orders of the secretaries, did not get
very far as Dr. Wild said that he pro-
posed to obey the orders of the board
f which hired him and not the secretaries
who only recommend him, and while the
board, which consists of Governor More-
head, State Superintendent Thomas and
Attorney General Reed took no action it
was evident that they agreed with the
doctor that he was under their jurisdic
tion. Why Secretaries Object.
The aacretarles admitted that Dr. Wild
was well qualified for the position In
rv wh.v ann inni nn vu AminAnriv

his refusal to be governed by their
Dr. Wild said that he had become
tired of waiting for the secretaries - to
move and went ahead and did thing
because the people wanted results and
the secretaries were not giving them
" results'. He had been unable to make
reports to the board since his assistant
was taken away from him because ha
could not find time to fix them up as
he spent many hours both night and
day trying to kep his work up.

that Dr. Wild was the hardest worked
