called a publiG hearing net Thurs
day on S. F. 160, introduced by
President Pro Tern R. S. Norval
of Seward, which repeals .the Simah

The hearinep was set after resolii
tions from the American Legion
Dost of Seward, Senator Norval'sH
home town, had been fikd-with the
state senate pretesting against the
passage of the worval bill. '
The resolutions endorse the Si
mon foreign language law, passed

icanization act and urge the mem
bers of the legislature to kill any
measure designed to throw down
the bars relative to instruction in
the public, private or parochial

alterably opposed to repeal of the

pronounces S. F. 160, as "100: per
cent pernicious and un-American.

lution continues, "that any legislator-f
should be so unmindful of his obli
gations to his American constituency
as to introduce a bill to .repeal this

In Senate Attacked
x By Omaha Lawmaker

last minute Wednesday - afternoon

of Representative E4 Smith .of Oma

bread by the pound or fraction. of
the pound, a failure,
Such was the charge today by
Representative Smith after he scan
ned the bill introduced by Senators
Norval -&f Seward and Johnson of
Attains. .. i
"It .is innocent as a baby's kiss orf
the1 surface," Smith said. "In act, it
provides just as my bill does that
bread loaves shall be sold by the
pound or fraction of the pound. But
it adds unless otherwise warked'."
"That means the bakers can put
certain markings on the bread which
they understand, but which the pub
lic doesn't understand, and they will
continue to cut the loaves and not
the prices, the same as irt- past years.
A majority of the Douglas coiurty
representatives in the lower' house
declared they were unequivocally for
the Smith bilV which is receiving
commendation from hundreds' " of
Omaha people who have written to
Douglas county representatives, as
well as -many people living in other
