"Evidence, in the opinion of the
state insurance hoard indicates,"
the board says, "that Y. C. Jenkins.
J. W. McCarthy, F. C. Grovey and
Frsd H. Aclkins. agent, deliberately
planned to corrupt the bank cashier
and having done so, proceeded to
write insurance for all classes of
risks, accepting notes in payment
thereof and discounting them at the
German American State Hunk of
Chalco, having full knowledge that,
in many instances, the persons sign
ing the notes had no financial re
sponsibility and would not be able
lo liquidate same when due.
'The insurance board finds that
the said V. C. Jenkins, J. V. Mc
Carthy, F. (". Grovey, and Fred i.
Adkius, entered into a contract with
the German American State Bank of
Chalco, binding themselves individ
ually and severally to make good
any losses sustained by the bank by
virtue of its transactions with the
said insurance agents, which obli
gation to the hank the agents have
failed to discharge."

Association Entertains Four
Hundred Khaki Clad Men
in One Day With
A free three-months membership
in the OniaKa Young Men's Chris
tian association is offered to each
Omaha soldier returned from mili
tary service. This action was taken
at a directors' meeting held Tues
day. Men who have returned are
urged to make application for this
privilege to George V. Campbell,
In addition to this the associa
tion will continue its policy of giv
ing free visiting privileges to all
men in uniform. This has been
do:;e ever since the mobilization of
troops at the beginning of the war.
An average of 1,000 men per month
have availed themselves of this priv
ilege. Many Opportunities.
"Evidences of the rapid demobili
zation of our troops and the oppor
tunity for the association to serve
the men are marked," said R. S.
i'lower, general secretary. "Four
hundred soldiers tnroute east were
entertained in the local building
Tuesday. The commanding officer
of the train wired for bathing ac
commodations. Not only baths for
this bunch, but everything else the
r.ssociation could do for their com
fort or pleasure was done. Since
the signing of the armistice the dor
mitories have been completely filled
with permanent men, and men who
desire to room in the association ar?
beius turned away daily. Many of
the men have come to the associa
tion with employment problems.
Mrs. Violet Cain McCuliough, No.
2616 Browne street, wife of John H.
McCuliough, killed recently when a
large motor truck fell through a
bridge near Clermont, France, was
one of the first of America's war
brides, having been married April 9,
1917. just three days after the Unit
ed States entered the war.
Her hsuband, although only 28
years old when he was killed, has
perhaps also the distinction of hay
ing seen more years of service in
proportion to his age than any other
of Uncle Sam's men.
In 1902. while a mere IsA of only
12 years, being unable to secure his
parents' permission to join the army,
lie ran away from home and in .some
way succeeded in being accepted
into the service and has been a
proud wearer of the soldier's uni
form since that time.
In 1910 Frivate McCuliough came
to Fort Omaha, where, except when
he has been engaged in active serv
ice, he has made his headquarters.
In 1912 he went to the Philip
pines, where for nearly two years
he saw service as a member of the
United States cavalry forces, and
apain in 1916 he went to the Mexi
can border with General Pershing.
When the United States entered
the war with Germany, being an
expert wireless and signal servica
man, he was transferred to the air
service and soon after became mas
ter electrician. During the sum
mer of 1917 Private McCuliough was
transferred to Fort Sill, Oklahoma,
where he remained until June, 1918,
when he was ordered overseas. .
While at Fort Omaha he distin
guished himself as an athlete and
uas quite prominent among base
ball enthusiasts of the fort and city

Varying Wages Paid
by ."Big Five" Packers
Chicago, Dec. 18. How great was
a variation of wages paid by "big
live" packing companies to work
men doing the same class of work at
plants in different cities, was testi
fied to today by Dennis Lane, secre
tary of the Amalgamated Meat Cut
ters and Butcher Workmen's union,
at the packing companies' wage
hearing before Samuel Alschuler, a
federal judge. The witness asked
that the wages be made uniform in
all cities affected by the hearing.
Lane said that in ripening new
branches in various cities the pack
ing firms invariably sent men from
Chicago to get the branches started
and paid the Chicago wage. Later,
he said, local men would be employ
ed at lower rates and the Chicago
men would be sent back to this city.
He thought that competition be
tween plant managers to keep down
operating costs w as the cause of this
