Of Stillmans Is
Head of Motor Squad
Hearings in Suit Will Be Re
eumed Next Wednesday
Alienation Suit to Be Filed
Against Mrs. Leeds.
New York, May 26. Hearings in
the divorce suit brought by James A
Stillnian, millionaire banker against
Mrs. Anne U. Stillnian, will be re
sumed next Wednesday before Ref
eree D. G. Gleason. at Poughkeepsie.
This announcement, mad by one
of Mrs. Stillnian's attorneys today
was taken as an indication that the
settlement negotiations said to have
been inaugurated by counsel for the
banker had halted. Refusal of Mrs.
Stillnian to comply with her hus
band's demand that she live abroad
for five years after the suit had been
withdrawn was reported to be the
reason for this action. Another con
dition, alleged to have been imposed
by Mrs. Stilhuan's attorneys was
that she give her consent for' the
children to choose between their
parents. This, it is said, she has
declined to do.
Mr. Stillnian's offer is reported to
Viave included the withdrawal of his
suit, legal recognition of the legit
imacy of the infant, Guy Stillnian.
whose paternity has been questioned
in the proceedings and the granting
of an allowance of between $50,000
and $90,000 a year to Mrs. Stillnian.
Will Force Charges.
Unless the banker agrees to an
"unconditional surrender" before
Wednesday Mrs. Stillnian will turn
loose three broadsides against the
defense of the former bank
president as follows:
A $500,000 alienation of affection';
suit against Mrs. Florence H.
Leads, former "chicken on the Cen
'tury roof," and alleged affinity of
the former bank president.
Ask the indictment of Stillnian
and Mrs. Leeds by the grand jury,
charging that they lived together as
man and wife in this city.
Start an action for absolute di
vorcc, naming Stillnian as the father
of Jay iWard Leeds.
Mrs. Stillman Determined. .
Mrs. Stillnian. it is understood, is
determined to carry on the battle
cgainst her husband with all the in
strumcnts at her command unless
he meets her terms as outlined in
She will meet her husband's ef
forts to brand her Son, Guy, with
he mark of illegitimacy with a
.rotital attack. She will charge her
husband with being the father of not
only Jay Ward Leeds but of at least
one. other infant. She is determined,
it is said, to acquire a divorce but
she is also determined to secure it
in New York state. Her husband's
tentative proposal of a compromise
settlement contained the stipulation
that she should go to Paris and file
suit for divorce at the end of a f.e
"I could wish Mr. Stillnian and
Mrs. Leeds no greater misfortune
tltfin to be mated to each other."
Mrs. Stillman has said to friends. "I
intend to leave Mr. Stillmai. free to
do the decent thing and marry he
woman he has degraded."
Mrs. Leeds Stirred.
It is understood that Mrs. Still
man's contemplated actions have
reached the ears of Mrs. Leeds and
that she has decided to take steps to
establish legally the fatherhood of
her son in order that he may be pro
It is understood that Mrs. Still
nian's bitterness towards the former
chorus girl is enhanced by the al
leged continuation of the banker's
lavish gifts to Mrs.' Leeds, In the
meantime Mrs. Stillman has said to
"I'd rather wash dishes in Quids'
than be forced to leave America
even though I am to be given $90,

Ninety-seven dollars of the
$115 which mysteriously disappeared
from the drug store of Erie Thomas
about two weeks ago was returned

ents it was found to contain cur
rency and several rolls which con
tained nickels and -dimes. Other

to the ground. His helper, unable
to lift it, shouted for help, but it
was fully one minute before the vic
tim could be released, The burn was
on the ritfht !esr below the knee.

HELP YOURSELF CLUB
That is the high mark of compensation for which
members of the Help Yourself Club are striving. It
is based on the securing of the Capital Award of
the $7,800.00 Home and the first of the Special Ad
ditional Awards, the $1,625.00 Overland Sedan. ,
Still a $50,000.00 a year rate of pay means so
little in the lives of the average Help Yourself Club
members that they have gone to "sleep at the
switch," are throwing their possibilities away and
permitting brand new members to come in and pass
them on the road as swiftly as our $4,440.00 Cadillac
will fcfiss a horse-drawn vehicle.
Look at that list of awards $29,450.00 of it.
Look at the standing of members as shown on
page 4. Compare the small lists with the large
awards. A wonderful lack of appreciation of the
value of effort. We say effort advisedly, because
. - - : ....nnAnAnnnnnnn
luck is an element which does not enter into this
campaign. Hard and consistent work is the only
element to be considered.
; With the equivalent of a $50,000.00 salary, the
opportunity still open to new members to secure two
awards and the lack of interest displayed by many
present members, a great many more people should
seize this opportunity.
The only requirement is that you should turn
in subscriptions to The Bee. If you doubt your ability
to do.it, just go out and try. Ask some of your
friends to give you a helping hand to win a valuable
award. You will be surprised to find how many
folks want to subscribe for The Bee. Then, having
demonstrated it to your satisfaction, send in your
subscriptions and your nomination blank. Your nec
essary supplies will be sent you at once.

Notes for Members and Non-Members
From the records of the Campaign Manager's Office
showing: that a subscription is received once in a while it ap
pears some of the members are laboring under the mistaken
idea that somebody else is going to do all the work for them.
Keep in mind the fact that the same person can win a
Special Additional Award of an automobile and also one of
the regular awards.
Would not it have felt fine on those' hot evenings to have
been able to climb into our own little "Bus" and gone for a
cool-off? There are twelve beautiful cars in the list of awards.
Keep in mind the three ways subscriptions count right now
regular votes, extra votes and cash subscriptions towards
the Special Additional Awards.
Will you have the satisfaction of having what you want
in early life or will you wait until old age for the good things?
There are nine Maxwell Touring Cars. One of them will
go to the person in each of the nine districts having the largest
score of votes, after the winners of th capital awards have
You may delay, but time will not
The one who will win the Capital Award is one who has
made a resolution, and is keeping it, that each day and every
day will see more votes placed to their credit.
That big Cadillac Is a $4,440.00 7-passenger touring car,
complete in every detail She's one of those big "busses" that
eat up the road and ride like a Pullman on the Overland
How much have you been making a year? One would
think that $50,000.00 a year was just pin money to some of
the H. Y. S. Club members.
There are no losers in the H. Y. S. Club campaign. All
members who fail to secure an award will, if they have turned
in $50.00 or more, receive a cash commission.
You are not restricted to any certain territory in your
work. Wotk where you please but if you . want an
Spur your friends on transmit to them some of the en
thusiasm you yourself possess, Remind them of the rides they
will enjoy with you at the wheel.
You are offering something worth while when you offer
a friend the opportunity to subscribe for The Bee. It it the
only morning paper in Nebraska with more than one leased
wire service. The Bee has three. That's why The Bee is the
most newsy paper. The market page of The Bee has no par
allel in the state. Business men all know this and these are
two of the reasons The Bee is always found on the breakfast
table of the big, successful business man. Where The Bee
is concerned there's more than one reason.
In determining where we stand in the campaign let us
remember the way these awards are to be made:
FIRST The Capital Awards will go to the three members
securing the greatest total number of votes during the entire
SECOND The Special Additional Awards of two auto
mobiles, the Overland Sedan and the Gardner Touring, will
go to the city member and the country member securing the
largest amount of cash subscriptions during the period from
May 1 6th to June 4th.
THIRD The District Awards of one Maxwell automobile,
one $200.00 Conservative Building .and Loan Deposit and one
$100.00 Conservative Building and Loan Deposit will be given
to the three members securing the largest total number of
votes during the entire campaign in each and every one of the
FOURTH Every member who does not get one 6f the
Capital or District or Special Additional Awards, but who se
cures a total in subscriptions of fifty dollars or more will get
a cash commission of ten per cent on every dollar sent in.
