Lincoln, July 3. In a communi
cation addressed to Governor Mc-
Kelvie, Major John G. Maher, pres
ident of the American Legion, ad
vises that returned soldiers should
wear their uniforms on Indepen
dence day. -The message follows:
"At a .meeting of the national ex
ecutive committee of the American
Legion, a resolution was unani
mously adopted pledging to all
governors and law-enforcing offi
cers 'of the various states full sup
port of the national arid branch or.
ganizations in all efforts to main
tain Jaw and order. :
Pursuant thereto, .the Nebraska
branch of the American Legion,
made up of former service men, sol
diers, sailors and marines, pledge
to you and through you, all law en
forcing officers of our state, full sup
port in all efforts to maintain 100
per cent Americanism, based on law
and order. This support is partic
ularly pledged for good government
on this, the first Independence day
after having finished the job for
which we entered our country's
"The national organization also
suggested that all former service

ly at all celebrations."

delay had occurred on its own line."
So saws the Nebraska supreme
court in' an appeal from Douglas
county, when it affirms a judgment
secured by Marsh & Marsh against
the Northwestern Railroad company
on a carload of cheese shipped from
Plymouth, Wis., to Omaha. The
delay was caused by the car being
stalled on Union Pacific tracks, the
ice in the car melted and the cheese

TheIowa lodges alleges tha the
Nebraska lodge is imposing on and
defrauding the public and its mem
bers and misrepresenting the finan
cial condition of its affairs.
- The trouble dales back to 1909
when the Nebraska lodge withdrew
from the jurisdiction of the supreme
lodge of the order. At that timeand
later many members transferred
their membership to the Iowa lodges,
which still is affiliated with the suv
preme lodge. At present there are
12 branches of the Iowa lodge in
Omaha and one in 'Fremont.
A temporary injunction is now in
force, prohibiting the Iowa lodge
from writing business anywhere in
Nebraska except in Omaha and Fre
mont. A hearing oifthe case will be held
ne,xt Monday before District Judge
Day at which time the question of a
permanent injunction against the
Iowa lodge will be determined.
The Iowa lodge states in the
amended answer filed yesterday that
it has actual assets in cash and prop
erty worth more than $1,000,000 and
debts of less than $25,000. It holds
that the Nebraska lodge has no right
to do business as an Ancient Order
