Harvesting and Threshing.
The mctter of harvesting which is
just now on, and the threshing
which is soon to follow, occupied
the time of the council and the food
administrator, as well as the county
agent and it was advised that where
it was practicable that all the gram

stack, and it was considered more of
the grain would be saved thereby.
The matter of farm employment

German language Strictly Forbidden
Two ministers of the German I
Lutheran church appeared before J
the council of defense asking that
they might preach or hold services
in the German language. The coun
cil of defense shut down on the
proposition strictly forbidding that
any services be held of any kind
whatever. If the speaking of Ger
man is a detriment to this country,
banish it and do it is the right kitd
of spirit, do not try to execute the
matter in a half hearted manner, do
it effectively and do it at once.

LETTERS FROM IKAJNUt
From Wednesday's Daily.
Edward Ripple has just received
a letter from his son Eddie in fact
two, one written the eighteenth of
May and the other one on the twen-
ty-eighth, but both posted on June
2nd, which said that all the boys
were feeling fine there. There are
eight of the boys from this city to
gether and seem anxious to her.r
from Plattsmouth. Some friend
sent the Journal to the bunch for
a while. The letter from Eddit said
the boys were all well with the ex
ception of Earl Murray, who was
sick for some time, but is about well
again. Miss Mae Cotner also receiv
ed a letter from Mr. Ripple in which
he says they have a fine country

gether still and all well, and enjoy
THAT RECLASSIFICATION WORK.
From "Wednesday's Dally.
At the time the classification was
made, many people were placed in
deferred classes, and when the year
had rolled away, it was found that
the occupation in which many were
engaged at the beginning of the
year was not followed by them and
they had turned their efforts to some
other avocation, the following "of
which would have placed them in
another classilcation and in some in
stance they are without employment,
some on their own account and oth
ers perhaps from other reasons and
which they were not responsible for
in any way. Now that a year had
passed there are a large number oT
people who are not engaged in an
essential of production occupation.
It is evident that a reclassification
should be made in this instance. The
reclassification which will clear up
the atmosphere will materially sim
plify matters and will again straight
en out the matter of the availability
of the registration lists and classes.

They Go This Morning.
Just about 8 o'clock the boys as
sembled on the court house lawn for
their roll call and to depart. Friends
of the young men were present and
the good-byes were said with moan
ing and the God bless you's with
fervor. The band produced some in
spiring numbers, which was enjoyed
by all, and at the time for starting
preceeded the young men as they
with measured quick step faced
towards the Missouri Pacific station,
beyond which was the cantonment,
and the service which the country
which they and we are proud to call
ours, has called them. They were
away with the people lining the

in their departure, and wishing them
a victorious return. Their return
will be victorious and the finger of

There was a large concourse of

From Wednesday's Daily.
It looked nice to use last evening
to see leading the procession a band
of young men and boys, and follow
ing autos from Weeping Water,
which brought the boys who went
away this morning, and furnishing
music for them and those with them
as well as the people of this city.
The hearts of the Weeping Water
people are in the right place when
they left their homes, their business,
and whatever they had to do, and
' came to make the boys glad who are
i going away. This shows the patrio
tic spirit, and is appreciated by ths
boys who are departing. The morale
j of the soldier is what wins the battle

' the morale f the troops but to inspire
them with the patriotism which we
! should all have, let them know that
we believe in them, and show we ap

are making for the country and that
we are doing the right things here,
and we will sustain their morale
