of fifty-three, the Petersen motion
prevailed. Richmond led the fight for
the Petersen amendment and Bulla
also spoke in favor of it.
Goodall asserted that five wards of
Omaha now have no representation
on the school board, while one ward,
the Eighth, has four or five mem
bers. He charged the board with ex
travagance in its expenditures and
condemned it for other things. Mr.
Hopkins spoke along the same line.
Mr. Cronin resented outside inter
ference with Douglas county matters
and said the house should do what a
majority of the Douglas delegation
Replying to Goodall and Hopkins,

elected by a non-partisan citizens'
movement, Mr. Hopkins countered
by saying that the "citizens' move
ment" was only a bunch of women in
