The permanent injunction, asked

against the Woodmen of the World
rate increase, was refused in the dis
trict court at Nebraska City Thurs
day by Judge Frederick W. Button.
' The case involved the validity of
law passed by the society in July,
1919, calling for an increase of rates
to provide, a sufficient fund to pay
promised benefits amounting to $1,
180,000,000. Plaintiffs in the suit at
tempted to obtain an injunction to
prevent the taking effect of the laws
calling for a raise in individual rates
going into force December JU, W19.
May Stop Other SuitsS
According to officials of the or
ganization the old rates were not
adequate to pay outstanding benefits
and without the increase a deficit of
$176,000,000 would have occurred.

The decision handed down byths
court is of unusual importance, be
cause it will be used to prevent liti
gation in other states, Nebraska
being the original domicile of the
Woodmen of the World.
W. A. Fraser, sovereign com
ma ider, in expressing himself on
the decision, said:
; "The result is not different, from
what I expecied. Business neces
sity, and the right were on our side,
and the action taken by the society
was necessary for its perpetuation."
"The decision of the court was
clear, correct and is sustained by
the decisions of -the courts of last
resort in this nnf other states," said
D. E. Bradshaw, general attorney
for the organization.
