Secretary Wilson's Appeal .to .the
Workers of the Country to
Washington, D. C, June 13. Small
subscribers investing in $50 and $100
bonds ' have swelled the Liberty loan
nearer the $2,000,000,000 mark,
treasury officials said today, and ad
ditional thousands of these are looked
for before Friday night, when the J
subscriptions period closes. It is esti
mated that subscribers to the loan
now total 2,000,000 persons.
To workers of the country, Secre
tary Wilson sent this appeal:
"If you cannot buy a bond outright
you can make arrangements with your
employers or some banker to buy it
on the installment plan or a number
of you can club together, each putting
in his mite, to buy a bond. Every
dollar counts. Let me appeal to you,
as you value our free institutions, to
make every sacrifice necessary to buy
a bond, and do it now."

pleased to learn that there is at least
one dreaded disease that science has

Lincoln, Neb., June 13. "I am not
pulling any political wires to secure
the colonelcy of the proposed Sixth
Nebraska regiment," said Governor
Keith Neville here this afternoon,
with reference to a report published
in an Omaha newspaper.
"The line officers for the Sixth Ne
braska regiment have not been con
sidered and will not be considered
until the entire regiment is recruited
to full strength. The selection of
line officers will be' under the direct
supervision of the war department
and it is silly to intimate that polit

selection. There will be no politics
Friends of Governor Neville have
known for some that he has had a
"hankering" to serve his country in
any, capacity in which he will be of
the most service. He comes of a fam
ily which rendered distinguished serv

has himself had six years of training
in one of the finest military colleges
of the country, situated at Annapolis,

regiment have been considered, and
that is absolutely not a fact," said
