We can only ask God to let us make our way in righteousness and if, in that making, we can made our way religious, we'll be a little bit better for that." "Fulfill American Destiny." ' The earlier interruption to set speeches occurred at the monument dedication. In his interpolation the president urged his a audience to cherish national 'traditions by such erections, that they might be helped to "fulfill the great American des tiny." President Hibben told the audience at Nassau hall, where the degree was granted, that the building itself was the barracks from which Wash ington's continentals drove British regiments in the Princeton battle.

He had originally called Senator Sutherland's attention to the fact that thm inrrMtr in freiffht rite had come not during government owner- snip nut atter tne roaas . naa occn turned back to private ownership. Un the coal question, oenaior Norris said: - 'If th irnvrrnment took the rail roads, or if the government takes over the coal mines, u is not pecausc the government wants to do so. The government took over the railroads in the war ana tne tost oi operation increased, but it took them over when private operation absolutely failed and laid down and said 'We cannot do any better.' . Roads were Helpless. "I am not approving of govern ment operation during the war. I tkinir tir w, thnn&and of mis takes made. Perhaps the war would be sufficient excuse tor tnose mis takes, but it is sufficient to say that Vi nrivatr nwflers. at the time the government took over the railroads, were on their oacKs neipiess,- anq the great, railroad systems of the country were absolutely paralyzed and the government took them over to save its own life. "UnhnAv is advocating that the government operate the coal minea except as a necessity, i ininn as m senator from New York (Mr. Calder) has well said, we must have coal under our civilization and that we have reached a point where it is as The neoole must have it.

It would be just as bad to give to a private concern the control over the air we breathe We must have it as n ah.ntntA nrrfssitv. not because i we. want to, but because we must."

Development of Muscle Shoals Urged in Reports Acceptance of Ford Offer Rec ommended in Document Presented by Acting Chairman McKenzie. Washineton. June 9. Enactment of legislation designed to bring about development of the govern ments power and nitrate projects at Muscle Shoals, Ala., by private enterprise was recommended today to the house in three reports filed by members of the military committee. Each of the reports admitted that the committee had been unable to agree upon details for the proposed development and expressed belief that the task should be pertormea by the public itself. The ' report presented by Acting Chairman . McKenzie of Illinois, called for the acceptance of Henry Ford's proposal as amended by the committee to eliminate the Gorgas steam power plant from the proper tes to be disposed of at Muscle Shoals. i Would Change Terms. Representative Parker, republican New Jersey,' believed the Ford tender should be materially altered if accented in anv form, or the shoals properties should be returned to the jurisdiction of the War de partment and Secretary authorized to dispose of them under terms approved by congrets. Inquiry as to when action would be taken on the bills' directing ac ceptance of the Ford offer, which also were t removed from the com mittee by' Acting Chairman Mc Kenzie, was made by Representative Garrett of Tennessee, the minority leader, as soon as the reports were announced in the house. Majority Leader Mondell replied that while he was anxious for early consideration of the measures it was impossible at the present time to say how soon action could be expected. He pointed out that it was necessary tor the members first to have an op portunity to study the various re ports and familiarize themselves with the subject 1 Second Sunset Social .

On the floor of the cellar the nous found receipts signed by Omaha firms tor materials purchased by "Gus Grimes", snd used in building the shack in which he imprisoned and shackled two women 12 days ago. One bill waa iined bv th Omaha Lumber and Coal company and showed that on Anril 26 Gus Grimes paid $40 for a delivery of shiplap. Another bill, signed by the Demp ster Milling company, Omaha, show ed that Out Orimes paid $511.22 for the purchase and installation of a pump on his land in west Benson. There also was an invoice made out by the Rivett Lumber and Coal company to Gus Grimes for $33 for lumber 16 foot 2x4s. Clothing is Identified. Several quilts made un in the form of a bed were found wjth the cloth ing, rhe clothing has been identi fied as that stolen, from a cleaninar establishment at 2234 O street a week ago Monday, tne night before Brown engaged in a revolver duel with of ficers irt front of 2331 Q street. The church tinder which the stolen goods were found is scarcely 30 feet from where Brown's stolen car was abandoned last night on Twenty third street between O and P atreets. Members of the Lincoln Automo bile club, county officers of Lincoln and Omaha, city officers from Lin coln and Omaha, state officers and many other volunteers were scattered over the city tonight, some in autos, wnue others were stationed at cor ners to keep a watchful eye for lurk ing figures throughout the night. State Sheriff Hyers announced he would pay a reward to anyone turn ing in a clue which resulted in the capture of Brown. Search Lone Tunnel As the night progressed, hundreds joined the posse. Officers headed by Warden W. T. Fenton walked a dis tance of two miles through a tunnel which runs through the heart of .the city and covers an old creek. Foot prints seen at the mouth of the tun net caused the officers to make their stooping, uncertain way through this tunnel. The warden, after working with the posse from 1 in the morning until 8, discontinued this work long enough to supervise the electrocu tion ot James is. King, lwo hours after the electrocution the warden. with half a dozen guards, who knew Brown by sight, reported at the office of State Sheriff Gus Hyers. At 7 tonight residents living near the Rock Island tracks and in the vicinity of a majority of Brown's op erations phoned that shots had been heard. Members of the oosse, how ever, failed to locate the source of the reported shots. All members of the posse were warned to explore alleys and cellars in pairs as anyone seen alone in a yard or any isolated place was con sidered unsafe in cincoin tonight Fired at by Fireman. City Fireman Joe Reisch, 1733 P street, last night about 10:45 saw a man walk through .his yard. The man resembled Brown. Reisch was In bed, but leaped to his feet arid got his revolver. The man was standing between two win dows of the house next door. Reisch went to the window. "Stick 'em up I" he called to the man, who turned and ran out P street. Reisch said he was not over 12 feet from him when he shot twice and the fugitive fell to his knees, staggered to his feet again and 're sumed His flight. Reisch ran to the street in his night clothes and saw the fugitive get into a Ford coupe parked at Eighteenth and P streets. The coupe then raced east on P street; he said. Police were called and half an hour later found a Ford coupe on Twenty-third street, between O and P streets. Stolen Omaha Car. The coupe bore state license No. 1-6074. The engine number, which had not been tampered with, was 5332145. This enabled officera to identify positively the machine as that stolen from in front of the home of Dr. B. W. Hall, 2728 North Six tieth avenue, in Omaha, Wednesday night. . Omaha police at that time declared the theft was the work of Brown. who had been in hiding in Benson for a week. The state license number of Dr. Hall's car when it was stolen was 1-14388. This had been changed, and Mate sheritt Ous Hyers is now en deavoring to learn whose license the 1-6074 is. i ne engine number on the car, however, identified the car as Dr, Hall's. Near Scene of Shooting. This car, the night it was stolen, was standing just two blocks from the spot where Omaha police allege Brown shot Officer Charles Geisel man Tuesday nieht. In the rear of the coupe, when it was found, was a gunny sack filled with sardines, preserves, "all-day suckers," and in the front of the ma chine was an extra fivegallon can of gasoline, a red sweater, an old coat and cap. Mrs. Viola Dingman, plucky little divorcee who grappled with Brown on the street here last Sunday, lives at 1033 P street, just one block from the home of Fireman Reisch, where the shooting occurred last night. Sheriff Hyers is working on the supposition Brown was in the neigh borhood seeking to even up the score with her. Fillmore License. In the Ford coupe also were front and rear license plates numbereed 34-890. The figures 34 before the dash refers to Fillmore county. Gus Hyers learned from the coun ty treasurer at Geneva that this li cense had been issued to O.

J 1' street, just a few doors from Fireman Rcisch's home. Investigations showed the license plates were gone. Officers are confident the man Reisch shot at was passing through his yard with these plates on his way to the coupe when challenged. Roads Under Guard. All roads out of Lincoln are un der heavy guard again, as well as the bridge at Ashland. A cordon oi officers has again been thrown about the neighborhood where the shooting list night occurred. While Motorcycle Olliccr Joe Reimer was exploring last night as a member of the posse, he saw a short man, resembling in build the manacle man of Benson, running at Twenty second and V streets. Reimer gave chase on his motor cycle and called to the man to halt. When the man failed to comply, Reimer snapped the trigger of his revolver twice, he said, but it missed fire both times and he continued the chase. The man carrid a sack slung over his shoulder, he said, but as ne ran he tossed it aside. Reimer continued to chase the man until he saw him run down into a cellar. Reimer followed and searched the cellar, he said, but found no one. So he returned to the spot where he had seen the fugitive's flung sack fall but it was gone. York Y.M.CA.

Second Floor Direct Primary League Would Abolish Circle Initiative Petition to Bring About Vote on Nonparty Ballot Is Advocated by C. A. Sorensen. Lincol'i, June 9. C. A. Sorensen, temporary chairman of the new Ne braska Nonparty Ballot and Direct I'rimary league, issued a. statement declaring that initiative petitions will be circulated by the league st once for submitting to the voters for ap proval or rejection, at the next gen eral election, a constitutional amend ment perpetuating the direct primary and providing for the nonpartisan election of city, county and state offi cers. The movement aims to abolish the arly circle and protect the direct primary, according to its advocates. The proposed amendment reads as follows: "The nomination of candidates for the office of United States senator, member of congress, member of the state legislature, and for state and county elective public office shall be by direct primary. Ballots used in the nomination of candidates for elec tive public office created by the con stitution or the laws of this state shall have thereon no party name or circle, or a.ny other designation re lating to candidates." Backers of the proposed amend ment claim for it the sucr.sful en actment of the amendment will stop biennial attack on the direct primary, that it will take from the political parties their present monopoly of making nominations; that it will kill party machine politics; that it wilj tear dow,n the .artificial barriers which now separate the progressives and separate state and national politics. sipoii.Mra&Ca Summer Frocks Vie With Sports Apparel for Popularity But they need not, for there is a time and place for ,both and an abundance 6f each in Thompson, Belden's apparel section.
