Omaha Girl Student Wins
Honors at Uni. of Chicago
Miss Madeleine Cohn, 18
Years Old, Is Awarded
Miss Madeleine Cohn, who holds
the record for scholarship at Cen
tral High school, has again distin
guished herself at the University of
Chicago by being awarded a Phi
Beta Kappa key, the highest Amer
ican scholastic honor, after but two
years of college work. Miss Cohn,
who is only 18 years old, will enter
her senior year at the university
next fall, having been given credit
for a year of college work because
of excess subjects taken in her
senior year at Central High school,
where she carried six subjects with
grades of A for several semesters,
completing her high school course
with an all A record.
The Phi Beta Kappa is awarded
at the University of Chicago to
graduates who have maintained a
high standard of work or to juniors
who have shown unusual ability.
Because of her extra credits Miss
Cohn was rated as a junior this
year, and, by maintaining the re
quired high average, became eligi-
ble to the special honor. Her fath
er, Rabbi Frederick Cohn, also won
the Phi Beta Kappa while at the
university. Miss Cohn was initi
ated into the Beta chapter of Illi
nois Monday afternoon.
Most of Bricklayers
Who Struck for Higher
Wages, Now Employed
Practically every one of the 38
bricklayers, who walked out a week
ago following the refusal of a few
contractors .affiliated,, with the
Omaha Building exchange to grant
them a wage scale of $1 an hour, is
now employed, A. L. Keller, secre
tary and business agent of the local,
declared yesterday morning.
Between 25 and 30 of the brick
layers have left town, he stated.
Neighboring cities,- according to Mr.
Keller, are paying bricklayers the $1
scale, and, taking advantage of this,
the men are leaving town to obtain
work for the higher scale. Even
with the strike in progress, the de
mand for bricklayers is greater than
the supply, he stated.

Former Reserve Bank Gov
ernor Tells Credit Men This
Necessary to Effect
Detroit, Mich., June 10. A na
tional budget system was advocated
by Paul M. Warburg, former vice
governor of the Federal Reserve
board, addressing the opening ses
sion of the National Association of
Credit Men here today, as the only
means of effecting greater economy
in the national administration,
which, he said, was necessary . to
bring about a proper readjustment
of prices and normal taxation.
Mr. Warburg likened the finan
cial administration of the govern
ment to a department store where
chiefs of various sections 'entered
into commitments obligating the
corporation without knowledge of
what expenditures were being un
dertaken in other departments.
"That," continued the speaker,
"substantially is the condition of the
United States. . The financial meth
ods of our government must under
go a thorough reorganization. Our
future as world bankers offers op
portunities which baffle imagination.
These opportunities are so large
that even our phenomenal banking
strength may sooner or later
threaten to become exhausted unless
scientific economy is practiced from
top to bottom.
We should have a permanent
board to co-ordinate the estimated
income and expenditures."
Mr. Warburg declared American
trade acceptances were destined to
play an important part in promot
ing American trade throughout the
world. There are now outstanding
approximately $500,000,000 American
bankers' acceptances drawn in al
most every part of the globe, "but
this is only the oeginning," he said.
American business, he concluded,
must husband its resources and con
centrate its efforts on doing the con
structive things, based on produc
tion and saving, rather than be lured
on by fictitious prosperity born of
easy money and unnecessary infla
tion of credit and prices.

Wife, Suing for Divorce,

The suit for divorce filed by
