WILL STOP IN
CITY OF OMAHA
TtXtUKAMS FKOM j
ADJ. GEN. HARRIS FINAL
CASS COUNTY BOYS IN UNIT
To Stop in Metropolis Last of the
week while Enroute to Camp
Funston for Discharge.
From Monday's Pally.
Official confirmation that Nebras
ka troops of the S9th division would
stop over in Omaha for three hours
on their way to Camp Funston this
week came yesterday in telegrams
received by Mayor Smith and the
Omaha Chamber of Commerce. The
telegrams came from Adjutant Cen-
eral Harris, who on Saturday wired .
the Omaha parties that the Nebras-
kans would not stop off in the city
while enroute to Funston. No ex
planations were offered in regard to
the contradictory messages.
Though the exact date of the visit
of the soldiers remains undetermin
ed, the news that the Nebraskans
would surely stop off the allot ed time
spread over the city like wildfire. It
will be Omaha's biggest day and no
effort will be spared to make the
preparations come up to the great
ness of the occasion.
It is quite probable the unit will
arrive in the city either Friday or
Saturday of this week.
