merates the cases handled as follows:
Two murders, eleven taken to the

HUicide. twenty-three automobile acci

laneous accidents.
Robbed In an Alley Adolph Ros
acker of Traynor, la., visiting in
Omaha, decided Friday night that he
would like to "wet his whistle." When
a couple of white men invited him to
retire to an alley in the rear of Twelfth
and Douglas streets to take a nip he
willingly accepted. A couple of min
utes later he was shy $10 In cash and
a gold watch, of which the two stran
gers strongarmed and robbed him as
soon as they reached the alley.
Fights the Police Crazed with the
Illusion that he was destined to be the
emancipator of the black race, Oeorge
Washington, 2630 Patrick avenue, put
up a lusty battle to prevent police
from locking him up In a cell at cen
tral station. Washington cut his wrists
severely trying to jerk handcuffs off
and tried to light oft the officers who
were locking him up. He declared In
his delirium that he was the leader
of the black race, who was going to
trample down the oppression of the
Grmnell Urges That the
Farmers Put Out Big Crop
J. B. Grinnell, secretary of the Ne
braska Farm congress, while in
Omaha, suggested that the farmers
should use every effort to raise the
largest possible crop in view of the
demands tor tood stuns that
war will bring on.
"An army must be fed," said Sec
retary Grinnell," and in order that
they may be fed the greatest possible
crops must be raised. I know a num
ber ot tarmer boys, not yet of age,
who are planning to run away from
home and join the army. If those
boys only knew it, they could do just
as much for the cause by staying
at home and helping their fathers to
raise big crops and so put the nation
in a position to meet its crisis
the best possible condition as to
available resources.
Opportunities for Men Who

For ex-service men of the corps,

Kosmet Klub Will Produce Mu
sical Comedy at Brandeis
Theater Soon.
In Argonia, one of the numerous
islands of the Aegean sea, under the
protectorate of Turkey, is the scene
laid of the action of "The Diplomat,"
the dashing musical comedy which
the Kosmet Klub of the University
of Nebraska will present at the
Brandeis theater Saturday, April 21.
Two acts offer opportunity for some
brilliant stage effects, the first being
laid in the palace of the dictator, the
second in his summer cottage.
Omaha Students in Leads.
"The Dictator," the leading role, is
presented by an Omaha boy, Walter
C. Johnson, 2810 California street,
with Ellsworth Moser, 5805 Florence
boulevard, in the "second lead" as

Miss Katherine Newbranch, 1902
South Thirty-third street, is one of
the six leading dancers for this mu
sical comedy, and several other
Omaha people are members of the
chorus, which, with the cast, totals
fifty people.
University students who have been
working under the -direction of the
author, Prof. R. L. Scott of the state
institution, make' up the large com
pany necessary to produce this com
edy, including the specially trained
chorus of thirty-five, which has been
for weeks under the supervision of
special voice and dancing instructors.
Extra effort has been made this year
to emphasize the work of the chorus,
and it is believed to be one of the
features of the production.
Some Real Song Hits.
Musical hits are not lackinsr in the
comedy. One of the big successes is
"I Like to Flirt a Bit Myself," a duet,
one of the singers being Mr. Johnson,
in his role as the Dictator. Two
other song successes are "If You
Want to Know the Secret" and
"Honest, Dear, I Love You."
The music and words for "The Dip
lomat" were written by Nebraskans,
and with an all-Nebraska rnmnaim
producing it, the State university
alumni in Umaha have arranged for
a production of more than ordinary
interest to Omaha people.
