CARSON CITY, Nev.. May 31
-(By the Associated Press)
Mary Pickford's divorce from
Owen Moore was sustained today
by the Nevada supreme court.
In a , unanimous opinion and
order written by E. A. pucker,
Junior associate Justice, the court
late today held that AUpreey
General Fowler had no authority
to institute proceedings to havo
the divorce annulled and set aside
Judge Langan Affirmed
The supreme court's decision
was an affirmation of the order
of District Judge Frank P. aLn-
gan quashing service of summons
in an action brought by the attor
ney general to set aside the div
orce decree.
Miss Pickford was granted a
divorce from Owen Moore at
Mlnden, Nev., March 20, 1920.
Fowler's action to have the de
cree set aside was based on the
contention that Miss Pickford had
not resided In Nevada the period
required by law.
No Jurisdiction Claimed
When the district court in
which the divorce was granted
held that the action had been re
gular in every particular, Fowler
appealed to the state supreme
court, charging that the divorce
was obtained "through fraud and
collusion" on the part of Miss
Pickford and that the Minden
court had no Jurisdiction.
In an opinion of 15 typewritten
pages, the supreme court today
said, in substance:
Married Immediately Afterward
"Until the legislature acts and
empowers the attorney general,
or other officers, to represent the
state's interest in divorce suits,
the duty must remain where it

Marion county, has compiled the list of the newly elected
Republican precinct committeemen for the county, chosen at
the recent primary election. There are 74 precincts. Of
these, 3 have failed to elect, or are in ties that will have to
be determined judicially.
According to law, the county
chairman is required by law to
call these newly elected officers
together withiu 20 days after the
election and organize for their
two years term of service. The
county clerk will send them of
ficial acceptance blanks, and they
are legally qualified to serve by
filling in and filing their accept
ance. At their meeting they will

Contract Unlawful
In his decision Judge Kelly
found that the contract made by
the Polk county court and the
highway commission last spring
whereby the county court was to
use a part of the market road
fund for the purpose of preparing
the roadway and the building ot
bridges on the West Side highway
was unlawful and the money

Polk county also borrowed a
sura of money from the highway
commission with which to finance
some of the road work on the
stato roads and as this exceeded
the G pr cent I mitation of In
debtedness of the county the con
tract therefore is void.

Just when the county court can
find the amount of money witn
which to make the payments on
the roadbed of these two pieces
of roadwork is not known as none
of the members of the court could
be found this afternoon. The only
way out of the difficulty It seems
is for the county to vote a bond

School Board Refuses to Ac
cede to Petitions of
School Patrons
Miss Julia Iverson, an instruc
tor of the Lincoln junior high
school, will not be re-employed.
This was the decision last night
of members of the school board
and Superintendent George Hug,
who has refused to recommend
Miss Iverson to continue with the
local school system with which
she has been active for nearly 10
years. j
The board last night consid
ered the Iverson case at j special
meeting. Miss Ivercon found
friends in patrons of the Lincoln
school, a committee of five speak
ing in the Interest of her re-employment
last night. A petition
of nearly 300 names had been
presented by the board.
The board's decision came as a
surprise to members of the com
mittee who were present, as It
had been generally understood
that Miss Iverson wohid be con
tinued with the schools and that
difficulties between herself and
Superintendent Hug had been
ironed out.

Securities Go at Par and
Better for First Time
Since Issue Date
NEW YORK, May 31. For the
first time since the date of Issue,
all liberty bonds today sold at
par or better. Heavy trading In
liberty bonds at highest prices
and transactions, embracing ceve-
ral lots of $1,000,000 were the
outstanding feature of the bond
market. '
Continued ease of money and
investment buying by" Individuals
and corporations in anticipation
of June interest and dividend dis
bursements, gave stimulus to the
day's extensive, purchase of these
war flotations.
Comparisons Interesting
Maximum and minimum quota
tions ot . these . bonds so far this
year afforded interesting compar

3 V4s compares with a low of
94.48; the first 4 of 1932-47
sold as low as 98.10 and as high
as 100.10; the second 4s ot
1927-42 ranged from 9580 to
100; the third 4 Vis of 1928 from
