THE BfclE: OMAHA. THURSDAY. APRIL 28. 1921
OMAHA organizations are not the cold, heartless groups we have often
been led to believe, but rather they are tho most appreciative and
wish to show their kindly spirit on all occasions. The society of
Fine Arts is no exception and on Tuesday, when their president f the
past two years, Mrs. Ward M. Burgess, was honor guest at a luncheon
at the Country club, given by the board of directors, she was the recip
ient of a gift from them. Three volumes of Ruskin's "Stones of
Venice" and five volumes on "Modem Painters" were found at her
place when she arrived at the affair. The books were bound in mo
Roses and spring flowers formed an attractive centerpiece for the
luncheon table and a grate fire burned cheerily in the room. Covers were
placed for 15.

The young man started and looked
at her much as the chauffeur had
c'onc, then he also slnilcd as if some
sudden amusing thought had struck
"Say, but it's awfully good for you
to take-it like this!'' he said heartily.
"I shan't forget it. I'm afraid Dad's
going to try to do something un
pleasant like bringing a motorcycle
cop in lure if he can find one, but
if he does, I'll"
"My dear boy," Lillian interposed,
"you will hamper me 'very much,
and do yourself no good if you so
much as open your mouth in our de
fense, , no matter what your father

now, that powerful as your paternal

he is absolutely powerless to em

way if he should bring a dozen mo

"I Hope You Succeed."
The young man looked at her
searchingly again, then he laughed
"I hope you succeed in providing
the corner," he said understanding
as he lifted his hat and went back
to the big car over which the chauf
feur was stooping.
Jones raised himself and touched
his cap as the young man ap
proached. Then the two entered in
to a low-toned colloquy, dotted with
chuckles and discreet glances in our
direction. Jones did something
mysterious just under the plate hold
ing the speedometer and the clock,
and in a few seconds the motor as
mysteriously returned to life. Then
with Ted walking back to give any
necessary warning, Jones began to

It had not yet turned the first
corner when the siren of a motor
cycle sounded warningly, and Jones
in answer sounded the powerful
horn of the big machine. I saw Ted
throw up his arms as a signal and
spring aside into the bushes as a
motorcycle came around the corner,
skidded sickeningly, then came to a
full stop while its uniformed rider
a slight youth not much older than
Ted fairly tumbled off.
"She's a Dangerous Character."
"What's the trouble here?" he
asked a bit chokingly from his
Lillian advanced to meet him.
"There is no trouble," she said.
"Why are you here?"
"Why!" he began, blustering a bit
until he caught Lillian's glance, and
then suddenly changing to a more
respectful tone. "A gentleman on the
road outside here just called me and
told me that 'some people were stag
ing a riot in here and obstructing the
road, and building fires and I don't
know what else. He's a responsible
party. I've heard of him," his tone
breathed the awe of wealth and posi

ficials. "Of course, I'm bound to look
into things, but maybe "
"Officer!" The word sounded
raucously from the throat of the
pompous individual, now hot and
perspiring from his hurried walk in
the wake of the motorcycle. "I de
mand that you" arrest that woman.
She's a dangerous character.
The motorcycle officer hesitated,
looking helplessly from Lillian to
the heavily breathing owner of the
big car. Ted started forward violent
ly and paused, at a warning glance
from Lillian. Jones, the chauffeur,
who had stopped the backing of the
big car at a gesture from his em
ployer, sat stolid as ever, watching
everything from tinder the visor of
his cap. A furtive glance at him
showed me a gleam of quiet amuse
ment in his eyes, and I knew that he

The Nebraska Power Go. asked the city commission for
increased rates to give it greater revenue.
The city commission decided that the company was not
entitled to additional revenue.
The commission found that certain large users of eleq-,
trie power were paying less than cost some as low as
5 of one cent per kilowatt, while the average home
consumer paid 6 cents, or seven times as much.
In 1920 one of the large
packing companies paid
$122,533 for the elec
tricity it used.
The city commission determined to wipe out this dis
crimination. It raised the rates of the big users and cut
the rate of the "little fellow" from .6 to 5 J .cents.
The big users didn't like it. They have objected. But
the majority of the commission went ahead and lifted
the burden from the "little fellow."
URE as City Commissioner
led the fight in the city commission. He conducted the
principal investigation of light company evidence. He
pointed out its flaws and weak points. He drafted the
new ordinance which cut the rates.
