It wasi evident observers believe the time is fast approaching when General Pershing's lirst field army will participate in the battle, on the theory that General Foch has been withholding this new and vigorous force for a decisive blow when the time w ripe.

Over HO.t'OO more men will register i nilr the new man power act in Ne braska than registered una r the se lective draft law passed at the out-brc-ak of the war, which fixed the f'raf: ages from 21 to 31. The new man power law provides fcr the regis tration of all men from 18 to 45 years of age. Estimates indicate that ipproximately 177.000 Nebraska men will register under the new act. That prosperity prevails among far mers cf western Nebraska is attested by a letter received by Mayor Smith f Omaha from K. L. Pierce of Hem mingford in which an offer is made in behalf of citizens of the community to sond a carload of potatoes to the metropolis for distribution among the poor. The letter states that, "as we have r.o poor of our own, we wish to serd a carload of spuds to Omaha for your needy poor." Orders received at the Nebraska headquarters of the co-operating pub lic employment bureau at Omaha state that Nebraska within the next few weeks or a month must furnish S.1S0 men for essential war work in the ship yards, railroads, munition factories and o'her war activities. The order Is presumed, to refer to the Nebraska quota of the 1,000.000 more men for war industries which the government wants at once. State Director Kleffner says it is possible that the bureau will have to step into the mercantile estab lishments throughout the state and tahe men considered engaged in non essential employment and send them on to the government work. "It Is likely that we will get authority to draft these men for the war industries through the increase in the draft,". he said. The stock movement from the sand hills, the short grass country and the mountain range country northwest, !3 now on and the Burlington railroad Is being taxed to handle the movement. There seems to be no great scarcity of c ars or motive power, but the busi ness is so heavy that the capacity of the railroad is taied. The company baa been doing improvement work on its Wyoming I'isirict. and many men have been shipped there, who wcrk a few days ar.d then leave. These men add to the burden of transportation and ab-'o fail to assist it ia getting needed work dona. ' Conserve Your Money It is just as vital that the wealth of the citizens of this conn try be conserved as that any other necessity be conserved to aid in the winning of the War. Money is the greatest requirement of the Government; the absolutely paramount commodity, the essential thing which we can all have a part in providing. The Capital Issues Committee Was Created to Help Conserve Money The Capital Issues Committee has legal jurisdiction over all issues in excess of f'l 00.000 and has requested that all issues of if'l 00,000 or less be submitted to the District Com mittee for approval. It will be regarded as an unpatriotic act for any stock to be sold which has not received the permission of the Cap ital Issues Committee, and all citizens are asked to co operate with the. Committee by refusing to buy any stock which has not been submitted to the Committee and received the proper permit. Insist Upon Seeing the Permit Before Buying Any Stock "When you are asked to buy stock or bonds in any com puny, insist upon seeing the permit of the Capital Issues Committee for its sale. Do not accept any statement that it is all riirht, that the permit is in the offices of the com pany. DO NOT BUY ANY STOCK unless the proper per mit is produced for your inspection. Do not trade your LIBERTY BONDS for any stock, no matter if a permit for its sale has b-en issued or not. The boys at lho front have enlisted for the duration of the "War. Surely you should enlist your money without res ervation. You owe to the Government your co-operation in providing the monev needed to carry on the War, and the Capital Issues Committee helps you to avoid non-essential invest ments. lMease do all that you can to assist the Government in this direction.

RA LRQAD MEN II BE EXEMPT Ifi NEXT DRAFT GENERALS MARCH AND CROWD ER DISCUSS WITH PRESIDENT THE CHANGES TO BE "MADE IN REGULATIONS. Washington, Sept. 3. No chang es are contemplated in the basic rules governing the operation of the draft in the case of men included under the new age limits. This was indicated today by Trovost Marshal General Crowder who, after going to the White House with General March, explained that the principles which prevailed in the selection of men between the ages of 21 and 31 would be retained in large measure. There will be some changes in the details relating to men engaged in certain industries and more es pecially to men of more mature age included in the new registration. Just what these are the government is not prepared to announce, but it is believed that rules to cover all questions that can be foreseen now will be sent to draft boards within a few days. General March and General Crow der conferred with President Wilson for an hour. They were summoned by the president, who wished to fa miliarize himself with all details of the man power measure and pro posed method of operation.

Di rector General MeAdoo is under stood to be in favor of providing some method other than the decision of local boards for exemtping es sential railroad employes. General Crowder said that, under present plans, the matter of exempting this class of workers would be in the hands o fthe district boards to be taken up by them after the question naires have been passed on by the local boards, which, he said, are without jurisdiction to exempt a registrant on the ground that he is an essential industrial worker.
