ON OPEN SUNDAY
Refuses Action on Petition
From Women's Societies
To Stop Dances and
New Building to Care For
"Light Six" Exclusively
The city council voted Tuesday
ta , place on file without action
a written protest, submitted by rep
resentatives of variou organizations
of women, and urging that all Sun
day commercialized amusement be
The protest was signed by the
following women: Mrs. William
Herry, Mrs. H. G. Claggett and Mrs.
Mrs. C. T. Roberts, for the Douglas
County Woman's Christian Tem
perance union; Mrs. C. L. Hempel
and Mrs. W. H. Hatteroth, presi
dent and secretary, respectively, of
the Omaha Woman's club; Mrs. A
A. DeLarme, president of Women's
Missionary Federation; Mrs. Carrie
Ada Campbell, general secretary of
the Young Woman's Christian asso
ciation; Miss Mary Anthony, super
intendent of the City Mission.
City Commissioner Ringer was
alone in voting against placing the
protest on file. A delegation of
nearly 100 women attended the
council meeting 'to .reinforce their
Mayor Favors Base Ball.
The discussion between the wom
and the city officials resulted in
'ome sharp words, Commissioner
imman in particular taking a" posi
tive stand in favor of Sunday
amusements, properly regulated.
Mayor Smith addressed the fol
fowing remarks to the women:
"If you come here merely to
protest against the use of city
property, such as the Auditorium, for
Sunday dances, there would be little
doubt but that your request would
be honored, but when you ask that
all Sunday commercialized dances
shall be stopped, you are asking too
much. There is no more harm in
Sunday dancing than there is in
Sunday base ball. I go to Sunday
Jiase ball games and holler my head
off. I am afraid that if you examine
the records of the district court you
will find that many of the worst
crimes result from Sunday automo
bile rides, and yet you would not
stop Sunday ' automobiling, would
"Awful Things Happen."
"You don't know the awful things
that happen at these dance daces,"
said Mrs. G. W. Covell of the Wo
man's Christian Temperance union.
"I wish to explain that our state
law specifically exempts Omaha in
the matter of Sunday dancing," ex
plained Commissioner Zimman, who
has charge of the Auditorium, where
a recent Sunday night dance held
under municipal auspices had been
referred to by the women.

"It is part " of the duty of the

Fruit In Raid on
Cellar off Parson
While the Rev. Charles W.
Savtdge lay peacefully dreaming
Monday night of marriage cere
monies yet to be, highjackers,
in their nightly "canvass for the
remaining liquor supply in
Omaha, forced two doors at his
residence, 2228 Maple street,
searched the cellar,' and then de
parted, empty hancfed as far as
Mr. Savidge knows.
According to Mr. Savidge,
the gentry of the speedy car,
heavy truck and ready gun, ac
complished what amounted to
almost a safe-cracking job in
opening his outside cellar door.
.The spring lock, was neatly
punched out, after holes had
been drilled arouiyl it. They ex
amined the contents of his cel
. Jar, forced an inner door lead
ing to his fruit room, and
searched that thoroughly. A
large quantity of canned fruit,
valued by Mrs. Savidge at $200,
which had been moved, bore
testimony to their thoroughness,
but none of it was taken.
It is believed that the high
jackers appeared some time after
midnight. Before starting their
operations on the door they cut
the telephone wires on the out
side. None of those sleeping in
the house was awakened. "What
