ent west"'Main street approach with
id 13 cent grade, will be a special
order of business . for the chamber
of commerce at its meeting next
Tuesday. Reports on the road ques
tion were made before the chamber
Tuesday by Judge Thomas Neill and
Professor O. L. Waller, who favored
tie estbllshnient of a now highway
Mrt h of the O-W. R. & N. tracks
raj the Smawley place, one'mile west,
there it could cross-the South Pa
■? lease and the railroad tracks and
proceed around the bill and up the
gulch to connect with the present
'Vtete highway just west of the cem
etery. It is estimated that the grade
for this proposed road would not ex
ceed five percent at any place and
that it would serve all immediate
needs for a grade over which heavy
loads ran be hauled by the farmers
residing west of Pullman.
I Other rout:.- have also been pro

cussed in full at the chamber meet

DIETZ AGAIN INDICTED
BY FEDERAL JURY
| Former Pullman Coach Again Arrest
ed Following Disagreement of Jury
— New <'"large in Two Counts
Following tho disagreement and
discharge of the jury Thursday in
the case of William H. (Lone Star)
Diets, football coach and movie
I actor, charged with falsficat ion un
der the draft act, Dietz Was again
indicted Thursday afternoon by the
federal grand jury. About the time
the Indictment was reported into the
federal court Dletz appeared at the
office of United States Marshal J.
I". McOovern and was arrested on a
warrant Issued under the new in
dictment. The bond of $1000 thai
secured the release of Dietz in the
old case, filed last January, was al
lowed to continue.
The new indictment is in two
counts, the same as the old one, the
first covering DUrtl'a registration
and the second bis answers to the
questionnaire. The indictment dif
fers from the one in the first case
In that it does not allege that Dletz
la a white man. It alleges he Is a
natural born Amejrican citizen in
stead or being a noncitizeu Indian
as he stated in his registration card.
The other difference is the Inclusion
Of Diets'! request for an exemption
as the sole manager and director of
a necessary war enterprise known as
the American Indian Film corpora
tion of Spokane. which was alleged .
to be employing lb or more people.
Reference to the film corporation
was ruled out of the recent trial be
cause it was not covered by the first
The jury in the Diets case was .
discharged at 10 o'clock. Thursday
morning in the federal court after
i>t.ui 20 hours of deliberation.
More than a dozen ballots were tak
en, the first standing nine for ac
qiittal and three for conviction. On
the fifth ballot, taken after more
than three hours, the vote stood eight
for acquittal to four for conviction.
Balloting continued at intervals dur
ing the night until before breakfast
the vote was six to six. After tweak
fast the preference of the jury
changed to eight for acquittal to four
for conviction, where it stood When
the jury entered; the courtroom with
a request for discharge.
According to members of the Jury.
the testimony of the officers of the
marines from Mare island, saying
they had approved Dlets's question
naire, was ,i strong point in his favor.
The question of good faith based up
on the claim of Diet? that he be
lieved he told the truth when he
signed the statements in the. ques
tionnaire also operated in his favor,
particularly In view of the instruc
tions of the court telling the jury
to discharge Diets If they were con
vinced that he really believed all of
the Indian claims he made in his
Things thai operated against Dietz
were his claim in the questionnaire
that he spoke the Sioux language
