bureau of the Chamber of Commerce,

Gould Dietz Celebrates His
Birthday With Dinner Party
Gould Dietz celebrated his 50th
birthday with a dinner party at his
home Friday evening when the Ak-Sar-Ben
board of governors were his
guests. After a presentation speech
by C. E. Black, money literally rained
on the honor guest amounting to $50
in new quarters. It was not a birth

Lovers of fun, music and dancing
should not miss the opening of Lake

place Sunday. Carl Lamp needs no
introduction, but it may be interesting
to know that his role of leader of the
Lakeview jazz band is a happy one
and as the director of the dance
palace harmonists affords a legitimate
and consistent reason for hi rfailv
appearance at this mammoth garden.

3 JUDGES NAMED

The board of appraisers include:
Judge George A. Day, Omaha. Fourth
judicial district; Judge W. V. Allen
Madison, Ninth judicial district, and
Judge E. E. Good, Wahoo, Fifth

either Judge Day or Judge Troup
of the equity bench.
Under the special act, these men
will meet and agree what the pur
chase price of the plant shall be.
'Judge Allen formerly was United
States senator from Nebraska.
The clerk of the supreme court by
mistake yesterday afternoon gave out
the name of Judge J. R. Hanna

Judge Good. The mistake was not
discovered until after the Bee had
printed the name of Judge Hanna.
