MO FARMERS DO
Speeding Machine Plunges
Through Bridge Rail for 30-
Foot Drop; Occupants
Lindsay, Neb., July 23. (Special.)
Tack" Otteroohl and Jerry Hannel
had a most peculiar automobile acci
dent in which their car did a com
plete "loop-the-loop" and landed up
right after a 30-foot drop into a
creek, neither of the men being in
jured. They were returning home from
Rockville, 23 miles on the other side
of Fullerton. While descending a
steep hill at the bottom of which is
a bridge at nearly right angles with
the descent the brakes refused to
work. The car struck the bridge
rail, knocking it off, and then plunged,
head first into the ravine. It de
scribed a complete somersault,
knocking off the top on the way
down, but landed on its wheels.
Hannel found himself in the back
seat and Otterpohl where Hannel sat
which was fortunate for him as the
Peering rod was bent to the bottom
of the car by the force of the impact.
Undaunted by their experience,
they secured a block and tackle from
a neighboring house, hitched the rope
to a tree and drew the car back to
the road. After giving it "first aid"
they ran on the car's power to Ful
lerton where a steering knuckle gave
out. The top and windshield were
demolished and the body damaged
Mystery Surrounds Death
Of Cedar County Farmer
Crofton, Neb., July 24. (Special
Telegram.) Mystery surrounds the
death of Carl Yonke, a farmer, whose
body was found in the yard of Tony
Tramp's place, four miles northwest
of this place last Thursday.
A coroner's jury impaneled by
County Attorney Peterson, did' not
fix the blame for Yonke's death. It
is known, however, that Yonke.
Tramp and Otto Bartz were drinking
heavily at Tramp's place the day
when Yonke's death occurred. A
number of severe bruises were found
on the body of the dead man.
Tramp has been arrested and is in
jail, charged with having . liquor in
: his possession. The circumstances
surrounding the tragedy will be in
vestigated more closely while Tramp
is held in jail. Popular opinion is to
the effect that Tramp knows more
about the death of Yonke than he
has told. ,

POLICY IN RACE
FOR U. S. SENATE
Democratic Candidate Declares
for Government Ownership
and Hits Foreign Lan
From a Staff Correspondent.
Lincoln, July 23. (Special.) W.
B. Price in giving his platform as a
candidate for the nomination for
United States senator on the demo
cratic ticket says after expressing his
loyalty to the nation in time of war
that he stands by President Wilson's
views on making treaties of peace
and commercial character. He favors
strict immigration laws and says;
Raps Foreign Language.
"I am in favor of a strong Ameri
can government, bunded upon our
democratic principles and traditions.
Therefore, I am opposed to the teach
ing of foreign languages in our public
school system. However, I do not
discourage the teaching of it in our
universities and colleges. This will
be made necessary on account of
our great commercial expansion, as
we shall need in this service, as well
as in the government service, young
men and women who have some
knowledge of foreign languages.
"It is not the' language with which
we have had to deal, but it is some
of the people who speak it that have
caused us our anxiety during these
perilous times. I am opposed to any
organization or any activity that
will raise class aeainst class or
nation against nation, but rather fa
vor all organizations or activities
that have for their end nationalizing
those who seek the protection and
advantage of this government. If
it is demonstrated that there are
those among us who will not harmon
ize with American institutions, then
I favor their deportation."
After declaring for an international
court with jurisdiction to try and de
termine all international disputes,
Mr. Price says:
"I have lived in this state for over
30 years, and have devoted much of
my time and activities to assisting
in bringing about reforms in this
state. The people quite generally
are acquainted with my record, and
I will not make an extended state
ment, other than to say that I favor
government ownership of railroads,
telegraph lines, express companies,
favor equal suffrage to women, and
the abolition of the liquor traffic.
The public ownership question is of
vital importance at this time, and if
I am selected to represent the people
in the senate, I will do all in my
power to make the present govern
ment control extend to ownership."
