gram and the arrangements tor the
observance of the three days which
will be given over to the event, have
about completed tha work so far as it
can be and there is every indication
that with proper weather conditions
it will be an event long to be remem
bered. That alt Nebraska is interested is
evidenced by the fact that in -the re
union of the old settlers who were in
the .state when the state, was still a
territory, indications point to over
l.uuu or the men and women who
helped to make early Nebraska his
tory. That day will be celebrated
with special ceremonies at St. Paul's
Methodist church, in which' former
Lieutenant Governor Thomas Majors
will preside and General John Lee

The day is coming, the stage is set,
and all that will prevent the greatest
event that Nebraska has ever seen
will be old Jupiter .Plnv, who. it . is
hoped, will lake oogriiiance ' of ' the
fact that Nebraska wants a square
deal, and will take his storm and wind
clouds down, In .Missouri and Okla

BILL BEFORE SENATE
Administration Measure to
Prevent Wilful Obstruction
of Commerce Debated in
Washington, June 9. The adminis
tration's priority shipment bill was de
bated in senate today and a final vote
probably will be taken tomorrow. The
bill would prevent wilful obstruction
of interstate commerce and would em
power the president to direct that
shipments of foodstuffs and other ne
cessities have preference in transpor
tation. Senator Smith of Georgia protested
against what he termed "the unlimited
power given one person regarding
war supplies" and introduced an
amendment which would limit the
president's power so as to permit him
to designate only the routing of mili
tary forces and supplies. ' -
Senator Gore introduced an amend
ment which would prohibit the ship
ment of distilled liquors.
An amendment by Senator Hollis
under which the provisions of the bill
could not be construed to curb the
right to strike was accepted.
