Judge Day Puts Over -Wight-man
Case; Says Both
Sides Have Written
Letters to Him. ' :
Judge Day, sitting in divorce court,
this morning read the "riot act" fo
lawyers and clients in the Wightman
case at the beginning of what was to
liave been, a hearing on a motion for
l modification of a decree.
The hearing never ' was held," for
the judge, his judicial feathers ruffled,
announced he would wait until Oc-
. tober 1 to pass on that particular case.
Grace S. Wightman; a woman phy
sician, sued her husband, Dr. Hugh
W. Wightman also a doctor, for di-
. vorce August 3, 1916. The Wightman
family formerly lived at 106 North
- Twenty-fourth street.
On February 24 of this year she
was granted a decree ly Judge Day.
Mrs. Dr. Wightman was given the
custody of a child, Roberta Wightman,
with the stipulation that, the husband
should be allowed to visit his daugh
ter at certain times.. v -
Ask Decree Modified.
A motion for a modification of the
decree and two affidavits in support
cf the paper were filed August 13.
- Attorneys and the divorced couple
appeared iin court expecting to "get
action," on the motion. Instead they
got a calling down from Judge Day,
who declared that both Mrs. Dr.
Wightman and -Mr.' Dr. Wightman
had written him letters referring to
"Such actions are highly improper
. and absolutely will not be permitted,"
said Judge Day. "Attorneys should
advise their clients never to do such
a thing.'- ; .
, Objects to Letters.
"In my sixteen years on the bench
only two letters bearing on cases have
ever been written to me as a judge.
These ' were both within the last
month. , -;
"People must remember law suits
are tried in court rooms on the evi
dence submittedsnot by private com
munications written to the judges.
"I refuse to pass on this motion
until I have read in court the letters
wnttS.n!t0.,n bv th Wightmans.
And I m ROine to set the hearinc nvr
until October I to give you all plenty
of time to think about it. That's all."
Here is Most Unique
Exemption Clctim Yet
- Here's one vouched for by Ed
ward Palmer, deputy in the office of
the clerk of the county court. :
According to Palmer, a husky
weighing about 200 pounds came
into county court Friday and asked
for an exemption blank.
"On what grounds do you ask ex
emption?" interrogated Palmer.
"I'm nervous and could not stand
the strain of war;. I was kicked in
the head by a pigeon," the husky is
said by Palmer to have replied. .
Palmer is reported to have said:

which he claims will make a practi

Two small experimental machines

from a gallon than gasoline. More

A machine is now under construc

per gallon. It is planned to have this
machine in operation in three months,

Electroline is manufactured electri
cally from low-grade kerosene. Oxy
gen is mixed with the low-grade oil
at a high temperature. The new mix
ture is similar to a combination of
gasoline and wood alcohol and avoids
many of the dangers of explosion
found in gasoline.
A corporation known as the Elec
troline company has been organized
and will place the new liquid on the
market. The 'company is undecided
as to the location of their factory, but
expect to locate in Omaha. Mr. John

diction. He has filed an injunction
suit, against Leeder in district court
in an attempt to prevent him from
collecting a judgment in Omaha
proper. Cedric E. Cramer is the
plaintiff in the case.
The attorney alleges Leeder has no
authority to serve summons in Omaha
proper.' declaring the justice of the
1eace has jurisdiction only in Doug
as county outside the city limits.
"If a person served -with one of
Leeder' summons goes, to his court
they've got hint, v says Palmer,

Leeder did not have jurisdiction in
Omaha proper he would not have to

French at University
As a result of ah article in The
Omaha Bee, Miss Selma .Anderson,
registrar at the University of Omaha,

Probably several classes will have to
be formed because of the many men
who will be on hand. .
