WAR BABIES ARE
NO DRAFT EXGUSE
OMAHA APPELLATE BOARD SAYS
STORK NO GROUNDS FOR
Omaha, Neb., Sept. 30. The stock
bringing war babies is no cause for
exemption of men married since the
draft; tlie First district appeal board
In such cases, it was declared, the
stork collides with the fixed rule of
the government that a selected man
cannot acquire a dependent and
thereby gain exemption.
"The acquirement of a wife or
child or any other dependent after
the draft will not result in exemp
tion," said Chairman Douglas Cones
of the appeal board.
A drafted man, married one month
ago, who asked exemption on ac
count of the stork, was certified for
service by the board today.
Local exemption boards have re
leased several men fcr this reason,
but they will be held by the district
board. Appeals of others whose
claims were rejected by local boards
will be dismissed.
Conner G. Osborn of North Platte,
father oft two children, one three
weeks old, exempted by the board,
sent a telegram today saying he had
made arrangements for support of
his family and that he will be
"ready and proud to go."

We are informed that certain peo
ple are spreading the report that the
riattsmouth State Bank is owned in
part by parties in control of the oth
er banks In this city, and in the near
future will be consolidated with one
This is an absolute falsehood, as
no man actively connected with any
other bank in this city has a single
share of stock in this bank.
The statement is also being made
that certain changes will soon be
made in the management of this
bank, and that Mr. Roberts is to re
tire from the bank, which statement
is equally false.
