THE AMERICAN "D0UGIIGIRLS.,
The poster showing Miss America
reporting to Uncle Sam for duty is
net a feat of fancy. It is a state
ment of fact. For exmirle, the
motor corps a;3 on a 24-hour tour
of duty last week and met all de
mands. If our soldiers are to be
praised for their manly qualities.
the voting women also ought lo ne
praised for their spirit, ot service, ;
and it is to be noted that the con
ditions of service impose no special
sacrifice of feminine iiualities. Who
call doubt that their uniforms ma'.ie
them even more attractive? That
it is the girls and the uniforms.
rather than either the girls cr the
uniforms, appears from the less sat
isfactory combination of the two in
private employ! lent. Or perhaps if
may be said that the uniformed
women who work for wage-: are Uss
glorified in the eyes of beholders,
than the women who work in the
national cause. Whatever the ex
planation, the private uniforms pro
duce no such e lect of trimness and
ellicieiicy as are the easy result of
the national service uniforms.
Only a few years ago the uni
form could rot have done that for
them. Then the feminine ideal wa-
somewhat lackadaisical. Now thy
reflect another feminine ideal. They
are robust young women, of the ath
letic type, and the product of out
door exercise. Tie' war i- sure to
confirm this culture of health and
sircr;1h by young people of both

THE PKESS :N ES
In view ot the fact that i.e'.vs
paoers and periodicals have lost som :
emiloyes, who have suv,ht urei.tcr
immutiity i'n,:,i military service in
more essential war indust ries, it. is
well to ask just how eissential thi
press is to winning the war. The
War Industries board put:; newspaper:-;
and periodical in class 4 in
the. priority Hot. which furnishes the
basis for industrial exemption from
the tlraft. Induct riea grouped in
class 1 are of exceptional import
ance in connection with the prose
cution of ie war. Those grouped
in 2, ?, and 4 will have precedence
over all industries not appearing in
the priority list, but the board says
distinctly that "as between these
three classes however, there Khali
be no complete cr absolute prefer
ence." This means that newspapers
and periodicals arc practically on
the same footing as the industries
and plants of classes 2 and I) in
demonstrating the essential quality
of their product.
What service has, the press already
rendered in this war? The national
publications broke down so effectu
ally all sectional barriers that wh'-n
the' time came tc declare war upon
Germany it was the act ot a unittd
nation. Newspapers anil periodicals
have been the rr.ost powerful single
force in pop:ilari;:ine; support of the
Liberty loans, and Secretary Me
Ado has ti'stifed to the major pari
they have thus played in supply ins,
the sine ws of ; war. They have so
educated the puelic mind on th; is
sues of war and the iluly of every
iti.en in a democracy that the
draft has nut with r.o opposition.
Fad the- liew.-papers, during the
tivil war, ",iveti the same support
to this principle, there would have
b"cn no draft riots then. The tai.

NEBRASKA'S WAR GOVERNOR
1. Every pledge made to the people has been fully
and faithfully redeemed.
2. lie has ,i;iven whole hearted support to the Federal
Government, and his experience is an asset in the prosecu
tion of the war.
3. He has mailt it possible for Nebraska's heroic sons
in the service to exercise the right of franchise, and has
protected their property rights in their absence from the
4. He will exert every effort to protect the people
of Nebraska from organized profiteering.
5. He has vigorously opposed all thing3 calculated to
embarrass the Government in the prosecution of the war.
6. His administration has been clean, honest and
businesslike, free from graft, favoritism and ostentation.
7. The General Fund levy for 1018 has been reduced
to three mills, and the amount raised in taxes for the Gen
eral Fund, will be the least raised in thirty years.
8. Hundreds of thousands of dollars were saved to
the farmers through the embargo placed upon seed corn
in 1017. The price per bushel in Nebraska ranged from
$3.00 to $5.00, while in Iowa and surrounding states, the
prices reaped by seed speculators ranged from $500 to
9. He appointed a committee of prominent stock
feeders to confer with the Federal Food Administration,
and a market for heavy beef cattle was created, averting
disaster to the stock feeding industry of Nebraska.
10. The State Hail Insurance law has been adminis
tered in an efficient and businesslike manner, and all losses
sustained by policy holders during the past season will be
paid in full. No other State sellirig hail insurance has ever
paid 100 per cent of its losses.
11. The Seed Analysis Branch of the Pure Food De
partment has, during Governor Neville's administration,
made more than 5,000 seed tests, without cost to the farm
ers of Nebraska.
12. Being advised that there was a shortage of hog
cholera serum and virus, and that Nebraska hog raisers
were experiencing difficulty in securing prompt delivery of
the product, Governor Neville recommended to the Regents
of the State University, that the state serum plant be re
opened. The Regents acted favorably upon the Governor's
recommendation, and immediately directed the reopening
of the plant.
13. Prohibition has been energetically enforced
throughout the State. There have been 4,527 prosecutions
and fines have been assessed aggregating $125,000.00.
14. He was born and reared in Nebraska, and under
stands the needs cf the people.
15. It is unwise to change horses in the middle of
a stream. t '
Nebraska has excelled all other states in many phases
of war work endeavor. The re-election of Nebraska's war
governor will mean a continuation of effective co-operation
ki this work.
