"The federal aid tax i dii.tributed proportionately to the wealth of the county and a a result we Ktt more toadt for money invested than any of the big eastern ttr and o far t haven't found a tingle thing that would indicate any graft in the good roadi department of this state." Improvement Shown. The committee reached here at noon after driving over federal aid reads and county road from Kear ney. The committee saw federal aid projects entailing from 25 to 30 feet fills in the never ending hills of this section and witnessed a straight, wide, even 25 foot road built n many instances over virgin soil o supplant old winding hilly roads maintained under the old county system. In littfi'atn county, tliccom mittee enjoyed a ride on a miniature figure eight, climbing one hill only o shoot down into another on coun ty roads. George Johnson, state engineer, was presented with a resolution by the Uuffalo and Sherman county boards today asking that a federal aid road be built on a road which the county had just finished a blade grader job. Welcome at Broken Bow. Thirty ears of Broken pow and Custer county citizens met the com mittee at the Luffalo-Custer county line and escorted it over federal aid roads to Brokcu r Bow. Governor McKelvie, Attorney General Davis and all riicniberof the committee ?poke. Emerson Purcell, Broken Bow editor, was toastmaster. Purcell stated that Custer county was proud and satisfied with its federal aid and state roads and as serted the satisfaction was the re sult of the fine feeling between J. A. Vansant, county highway com missioner, the county board and the slate engineers. Loup City Next. The committee will drive to Loup City .tomorrow where another open hearing on road troubles will be heard at the request of certain Sher man county citizens. Friday the committee ' returns to Lincoln to continue the hearing. The committee, as well as George Johnson, state engineer, wants everyone' with a complaint to reg ister it either Friday or Saturday at Lincoln so it can be investigated be fore adjournment. At Litchfield 200 citizens stopped the Committee aud requested the governor to speak to the school chil dren. The party was late, and a speech was impossible. Cole Refuses to Take Witness Stand at Trial .' (Continued From Pace One-) noon. He failed to establish an alibi and he brought out some testimony damaging to his own side. He called Charles Benson, employe of the Gil insky Fruit Co., to the stand and, after some questioning, elicited the information that he, Cole, had sought to borrow $5 or $10 from Benson the. very morning that Harry Hahn was shot and not more than an hour before the shooting. This was plain ly a point for the prosecution. I He. also interrogated Emily Rouff ncr.of the police bertillon depart ment, regarding a photograph of his right :hand. This photograph showed a blood blister on the right index ringer. He offered no testimony as to how the blister was caused. - Defendant Appears Worried. From Nathan Goldman, proprie tor of the Overland hotel, and Sam Tretiak, proprietor of the Windsor hotel, he drew testimony that he was never drunk or quarrelsome while he was a guest at these hotels. Goldman said Cole registered under the name of "C. P. Evans." ' Cole seemed nervous and worried during the afternoon. He seemed to feel that his case was not strong. However, once, when Judge Leslie remonstrated at his manner of ques tioning B. F. Raines, Windsor hotel, Cole said: "Haven't I the right to examine witnesses? The state brought many witnesses who admitted they know nothing about the case now being tried." But that was as far as he went. The jury, if it finds him guilty, can return anv one of these four ver dicts: First degree murder, electric chair; first degree murder, life im prisonment; second degree murder; manslaughter.

In running for re-election to her place in parliament next autumn, Lady Astor said she would not say one plank in her platform would be exactly dry, liut certainly it would not be wet. "Help! Help!" One of the largest groups of re porters and photographers that ever swarmed about a steamer down the bay surrounded Lady Astor. "Help! Help! Get my huband, get my husband!" she cried.
