As soon as the veto message was re ceived at the capitol and before it was oresented to the house, Chairman f.nnil of- the appropriations commit tee conferred with other Republican leaders with a view to undertaking a vote on the veto late today.

VV il lard, one of the promoters of the U lard Petroleum company, received in promoting the company which is largely composed of Topeka stock holders, according to a statement to day by officials in Judge James A.

Out of that amount, however, he paid $37,000 for commissions and $11,000 more. "He also admitted that the Farm ers' National bank gave him $26,000 after the well came in; that he gave it back to the bank, -which then gave him 132 units at par value of $30,000 and that a few days later the bank paid him back all but $2,000. and that he had not invested one cent in the property until the well came in." Testimony in the case was conclud ed Wednesday night. Arguments by attorneys will be heard one day next week. The exact date will be set by Judge James A. McClure Saturday.

Farewell to Gracia Wood by Owl Club I 1 Miss Gracia Wood, who has resigned as society reporter of the Topeka State Journal, effective May 15, was the honor guest at a dinner at Pelletier's j tea room Wednesday evening, given by members of the State Journal Owl ; club, composed of the editorial staff of the newspaper. Covers were laid for eighteen persons, including wives of club members. Toasts to the de parting society reporter and her suc cessor. Miss Frances Jones, were given with Arthur J. Carruth. Jr.. as toast- master. An engraved silver pencil was the favor for the honor guest. Miss Wood has been society reporter for The State Journal for nearly a year end has filled the position most successfully. She is well known in Topeka. having been graduated from Washburn college and having made her home In this city for the greater part of the past five years. She will conclude her work with The State Journal this week and will leave early next week for her home in Elmdale, Kan. . With her aunt. Miss Carrie Wood, she is planning to take an ex tensive trip this summer and expects to resume newspaper work or to take post graduate work in an eastern col lege next fall. The departure of Miss Wood will mean, among other resulting changes, that the mysterious name of "Ger aldine Johnson." often included in guest lists published in the society col umn, probably will pass into oblivion. Too modest to allow her own name to appear in the column she has been editing. Miss Wood substituted "Ger- aldlne Johnson" for-her own name in I pUDiisning Kuetn iiuis buviui af fairs to which she had been invited. The honor paid Miss Wood by The State Journal Owl club is a unique one in that for the first time In its numerous years of existence women were guests at an Owl club party.
