DECIDE IN 30 DAYS
norman man says decision
will be appealed to
Judge F. B. Swank returned Friday !
from Nebraska City, Neb., where for
the last week he has attended the
hearing of the W. O. W. rate case.
While the trial has ended, the judge
tells us that the judge sitting in the
case probably will deliberate for at
least thirty days before making a
And no further delay in the matter,
it seems probable that after the deci-
sion has been made it will be appeal-
ed to the supreme court of Nebraska.
Here it will be moved up on the dock-
et as rapidly as possible, in order
that it may be settled without indefi-
nite delay, Swank said.
The Nebraska City Daily News of
Thursday said the following:
"The hearing of the \\ oodmcn of
the World rate case which ha- been
on trial before Judge Button in the
district court since Monday was con-
eluded this morning. W. A. Fraser
was on the stand for some time this <
morning and gave some additional j
testimony regarding the raising of the
rates and what would happen to the .
order in case they were not elevated, j
The arguments of the case will be
heard at Fremont, before Judge But-
ton, and may take several days. All
the attorneys gathered up their "dope''
sheets, from which they have been
reading figures to the court for the
past three days or more and all the
notes which they made since the
trial started and left for their res-
Have Ten Days to File.
"They will have ten days in which
to prepare their arguments and pre-
sent them to the court. There has
been considerable interest taken in
the case and others than the lawyers
and officers of the order have been
present the greater part of the trial.
Judge Button proved to be most effi-
cient in the manner of handling the
case and did not allow the attorneys
to lag a minute in the taking of tes-
timony or their objections.
"W. A. Faser, Sovereingn Com-
mander of the Woodmen of the
World, in his testimony stated that he
had been connected with the order
since 1895; that he became a deputy in
1807 and since 1913 has been in su-
preme command of the association s
business, succeeding the late Joseph
Cullen Root, founder of the order.
He testified that every rate increase,
even the "war raise" of ten cents a
month, had been followed by pro-
tects from members particularly that
coterie of members in court at this
time protesting against the proposed
Possible Loss to Members.
"Mr. Fraser stated that the pro-
posed new scale was devised by Ab
Lattdla, of Nashville. Tenn.. recogniz-
ed as the most experienced insurance
actuary in the 1 nited States, and Mi
Makin, the society's actuary. This
scale was arr.ved at after several
weeks of study and. discussion. Mr.
Fraser stated. He also stated that
the time had now come when the
fraternal orders must either get on
a sounder basis or be forced out of
business, with subsequent loss to pol-
icy holders who have had member-
ships many years.
He stated that every rate •ncrease
had been followed by numerous sus-
pensions of memberships and demon-
lization among members and local
