Manager Evans Insists Mem
b'rship Be Kept From Attor
neys; Gooch and Man
ahan in Tilts.
'p From i Staff Correspondent
Lincoln, July 5.-(Special Tele
gram.) A list of the membership of
ttse Nebraska Nonpartisan league
must be produced in the present non
partisan State Council of Defense
hearing on an order by the court,
although Manager Evans, of the
league, insisted it must be kept from
the lawyers because there were se
crets of the organization which the
lawyers must not get hold of, nor
the Council of Defense. x
The reason given by Mr. Evans was
that efforts had been made in some
localities to try and get men 'who
had given checks in membreship to
withdraw them, and if the council
got hold of the list it might cause
the members considerable incon
venience and bother.
Attorney Strode gave as his reason
for wanting the lists examnied that
officers of the league had sworn that
lt league had from 15,000 to 20,000
members, and he didn't believe it.
Jle said the league wa scharged with
trying to get its membership from
oro-Germans and he believed the
court could verify it by an examina
tion of the names.
This afternoon H. E. Gooch of the
Gooch Milling company and prest
dent of the Star Publishing company,
