; Twin Brothers,
In Merry Mixup
Iowa Youths Who Served in
War Together Separted in
Training School by
Lincoln, March 2S.-Da1e and Dell
Trailor are twin brothers, lney
look and act as much alike as the
two well-known peas m a pod. Ur
dinarily their similarity in names, ap
pearance and actions causes them
only fun at the expense of their
friends. It remained for Uncle Sam
and his staff of clerks in Washington
to so badlv mix up these two young
men that they questioned even them
selves which was which.
Dale and Dell on July 16, 1917,
at the age of 18, enlisted in the army
, at Mount Pleasant, la. They went
v to training camp together. I hey
were assigned to duty m the same
company and -regiment, and were
sent overseas together with the I6&U1
infantry, Rainbow division. Both
were privates, first-class. Dale was
given serial No. 101275 and his broth
er. Dell, serial number 101281.
In the summer of 1918. Dale and
Dell wc in action. Each was
wounded at the same place and date
as was his twin brother. On May
17 both Dale and Dell were dis
charged, apparently in good physical
Dell Gets Compensation.
Shortlv after his discharge Dell
applied for compensation, filing with
his claim affidavits showing: that he
was suffering from disabilities caus
ed by gas receved in action. He was
given compensation. He also re
ceived the benefits of vocational ed
ucation and, came to Lincoln to learn
the watchmakers' trade. '
It was not until March, 1920. that
Dale began to feel the affects, of
the gas he encountered in France.
He was in Aberdeen, Wash., at the
time, and applied for compensation.
Tn reply he received a letter fro.ni
the bureau of war risk insurance
stating that he was receiving aid
from the government, and that it
was useless for him to try to receive
double compensation. He argued
with them by correspondence, stat
ing that he was not receiving com
pensation. They replied further,
stating that his check , was being
mailed from Washington every
month, and that so far as they were
concerneed the case was ended.
Dale was not to be stopped in this
. fashion. He went to the Red Cross
and they wrote long letters to Wash
ing and then he went to the Amer
ican Legion and they wrote in an ef
fort to secure an award for Aim
yithout avail v
At Work on Case. '
The ase recently wag placed in
the hands of Grover C. Davis, Ne
braska representative for the bureau
of war ri.: insurance. Having been
in France himself, Davis had a lot
of sympathy for Dale and listened
' to his story in detail. Tt dawned
upon him that Dale and Dell Trail
or' official records in Washington
) were being filed together because of
the similiarity in names and serial
numbers, and likeness in ages, date
of enlistment, date wounded in ac
tion, company and regiment and date
Davis is satisfied that the whole
affajr will be ironed out satisfactory
to the twins, who are 21 yean , of
age now. As soonSs his claims are
recognized, Dale will enter school
here and again will have the same
status as Jus brother, Dell.

"Flym' Jack" Bombs Omaha
Court House With Papers
Jack Atkinson, aviator, circled the
downtown business section yester
and and, sighting the court house,
carefully "drew a bed" and bombed
it not with high explosive bombs,
i but with cylinders containing the

Frank C. Best, former legislator and
county; commissioner, who is en

MrBest awaited the "bombing"

years ago when a certain lieutenant
governor was called to act as gover
nor atv two different" times for a
period extending over several days,
was compelled to pay his own hotel
bills, and railroad fare, and received
absolutely nothing1 for his services.
"Under the bill just passed, he will
be given the right to draw the salary
of the governor or so much of it as
wilt reimburse him for his expenses.
' Given Expense Fund.
"This man was a man who could
hardly afford to stand the expense,
and I believe he should be given at
least his expenses.
"The constitution sets out that the
tional money to a state officer over
and above his salary, consequently,
in order to receive his expenses, he
nlust receive it as the constitution
provides from the governor's pay.
"The governor is given an expense
fund which covers his expenses when
out of the state. Under the constitu
tion the. salary (s expected to o to
the acting governor, in order that he
may pay his expenses. This evens
up the proposition."
