paredness at a meeting in Mayor
Kiel's office of the executive commit
tee of mayors to outline plans for
the national defense conference of
mayors which will open tomorrow
Mayor Dahlman charged Mayor
Mltctaol with a "frame-up" when
the New York executive asked per
mission to read for approval by the
committee a resolution he Bald he ex
pected to submit to the convention.

buy some checks In this game. If
everything Is framed, let's go home
before we begin.

frame-up. 1 am wllllns to throw my

cowboy. "There la no use disguising

frameups to control the convention and
they usually delivered the goods."

"You fellows have your Way of dolus
things In your country," was Dahlman a
"But we have a way of doing things In
Omaha that's different. This nation Is
nervous because It Is not prepared to
cross swords with any of tho warring
nations and that Is the problem that the
people want us to solve. We ought to
do It without flourishes or frameups."
