The law provides that whenever the

'allow the law to a certain extent to
be inoperative, as long as its general
provisions are not interfered with.
Now, with the government handling
the movement of food products, it
appears that it is necessary to come

to handling cars.
According to representatives of the
roads, the railroad committee the gov
ernment committee and the commit
tee of the Interstate Commerce com
mission are working together in har
mony for the purpose of getting cars
. to the places most needed. All that is
asked of the state commission is also
to co-operate with the other commit
tees in this state and not to inter
fere with rules laid down by the gov
ernment committee.
"We. are doing everything in our
power to work with the government
in the handling of the car situation,"

a 6tate question. We are willing to do
what the government orders us to do,

State House Officials
Anxious to Husk Corn
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, Oct. 25. (Special.) If
Max Kattleman, late of Omaha, but
now of the secretary of state's office,
has his way there will not be an ear
of corn unshucked in Nebraska when
the frosty winds of March shall blow
across the state. He and Deputy
Treasurer Henry Berge want to come
to the relief of the state.
Both men have shucking records
and are anxious to go to the fields,
provided the farmers who hire them
have plenty of chickens. Outside of
that little inducement they are not so
particular. Of course they want a
power unloader, but itis not neces
sary taht its capacity should be un
limited. Few Rooters See Battling

State Board-Grants Bight to
Lake Near Antioch; Legal
Action to Test Coming
(From a Staff Correipenaent.) '""V
Lincoln, Oct. 25. (Special) The
Nebraska Refining and PipeLine
company, of which W. S. Ridgell, state
fire commission is j. president, was
awarded the potash fights to the lake
near Antioch which has been the bone
of controversy with the members of
the board of educational- funds.
The bid of the refining company was
accompanied by a certified check for
$1,000 to guaranty the prosecution of
the work as soon as it can be started.
The bid was for the usual percentage
of income from the lake with a $1,000
bonus. No other bids were offered
although a crowd of people interested
in' taking water from the lakes of the
state was present
The board was a little shy on at
tendance, the governor and treasurer
being absent. However, with Secre
tary of State Pool in the chair, Land
Commissioner Shumway as secretary
and Attorney General Reed present, it
made a quorum. t
What About Suit.
Mr. Shumway asked Mr. Ridgell
what he was going to do about fight
ing the suit in court to' test the valid
ity of the lease if the state gave it
to him, and Ridgell told him that was
not his business. iou people au
thorized the attorney general to go
ahead and begin a suit a month ago,"
said Mr. Ridgell and if you want to
know anything about it ask him."
The attorney general replied that
the state was ready to begin a suit
just as soon as the lease was made
and the lessee took possession. When
that is done the owners-of the agri
cultural lease will begin a suit against
the lessees. Then the state will be
gin its suit to test its right to make
such a lease, but until objection . is
made by somebody to leasing the lake
for, mineral 'purposes, the state has
nothing to start a suit" on. He said
that the state had prepared its case
so far as it could go, but could not
start a suit until there was occasion
for such a suit, when prompt action
owuld be taken, j

Under such an understanding Land
Commissioner Shumway appeared
