A CALL TO DUTY.
From the battle iiclds in France
there comes an unspoken call that
should find an answer in every
American's heart. The recent great
events in Kurope, the successes of
American arms on the fields of
France should spur every American
to greater effort.
Our people at home should not
rest on the laurel of our soldiers in
France. Fvery death on the field
of honor in the line of duty and for
our country's cause should be a call
to us for every sacrifice and every
exertion to aid the cause for which
our soldiers are fighting, for which
our soldiers have died.
Increase production, decrease con
sumption, save, and lend to the gov
ernment. Kvery cent lent to the
United States is used to support,
strengthen, and aid our soldiers in

HOW A GERMAN DELU
SION WAS SHATTERED
The truth as to tiie brilliant ac
complishments of the United States
in the war is well stated by the Ar
my and Navy Journal, an organ of
the two services not subject to olli
eial influence which says emphat
ically that we have shattered a Ger
man delusion. We have shattered
sonic other tilings also, and this is
t he explanation :
Our army officers and our nav
officers have been able to accomplish
the enormous tasks that are to their
credit chiefly for one reason. asid
from their native ability. This is
that for the first time in one of our
wars the civilian has been forced
to keep his hands away from our
professional soldiers and sailors.
Never until now have our mili
tary enterprises been exclusively in
charge of trained men. Never until
now have the ttrindent-voiced war
riors of congress and the cross-roads
been ignored. Never until now have
the scheming politicians with their
tralogic campaigns and their long
lists of candidates for generalship
been set aside. We have had the
usual number of sclf-a'ipointcd he
roes, but they have not been allow
ed lo interfere with the program.
For this achievement the country
is under obligations chiefly to
President Wilson, Secretary of War
llakcr and Secretary of the Navy
Daniels. All three have been assail
ed, one. as an academic person, the
second hs a pacifist ami the third as
a lubberly country editor. Yet they
have been wise enough to insist
that all purely military matters
must le under control of trained
soldiers and sailors, and what has
been accomplished already com
mands tho admiration of the entire
world. New York World.

NEXT YEAR'S WHEAT CROP.
Some years ago a good deal of
worry was caused by an announce
nient by the agricultural depart
ment that the "carry over" amount
of wheat was very small and that if
a good crop was not secured for the
coming harvest, disaster might fol
low. Now the department says that
the normal consumption require
ments of the exporting countries are
increasing with the growth of pop
illation instead of diminishing that
some losses in storage and transit
may be expected to continue; and
that it is highly desirable that a
surplus should be accumulated a1
Insurance against partial crop fail
ure next year.
Every Nebraska farmer should
take note of these announcements
and sow every acre of. wheat that it
is possible for him to get into the
ground. That is just as necessary
"war work" as the building of ships
or increasing the number of troops
in France. The tune lor tall w licit
sowing is near at hand and every
paper in the state should draw the
attention of farmers to the facts
presented. That is all that is neces
sary as far as the farmers are con
cerned. They will do their full du'y
in the future as in the past. With
the tractor in operation, the plant-,
ing of wheat is wholly machine
work. Seed and tractors is all the
farmers need to produce the biggest
crop ever raised in the state. It
will be to the interest of bankers
and everybody else to see to it that
the farmers get them. World Her

ARE TRYING TO DEFEAT
Bloomington, Neb., July 25th, 1918.
To the Loyal Democrats of Nebraska:
As the father of two boys, all that I have, who arc now
fighting at the front, and in behalf of these boys and the
thousands of other boys who are making similar sacrifices,
I appeal to you to nominate Richard L. Metcalfe as the
democratic candidate for United States Senator. When
men like Roosevelt are loosing their boys, and men like ex
Mayor Mitchell are giving their lives in this struggle, our
dut' is plain to put none but the loyal on guard and our
candidate for United States Senator must be a hundred
per cent American.
As a democrat I want the democratic parly to stand by
our boys, both now and when the war is over, by nominat
ing a man for Senator who is mentally capable of dealing
with the great questions that will have to be settled as well
as one whose loyalty is firm and unflinching. We must
not nominate a man for this high office who opposes the
President's war measures, fought the selective draft and
sought to prevent the soldiers going to France.
With Metcalfe as our nominee wc will have the sup
port of every loyal democrat. Let the others go to Berlin
