waiver of requisition provided lie is al

summer theater being erected at that C3r

voiced by a resident near the site and a
member of the council.
"I oronxiscd the Ak-Sar-Ben peonle to
turn over the building for their use when
their fall festivities began, and the plan
was thoroughly satisfactory. I will not get
started before the middle of the month,
when all but one other theater will be
closed, so I won't be hurting their busi

nothing objectionable will be presented.
Many of our cast are Omaha people. We
