From Saturday's Daily
"Curfew shall not ring tonight"
will probably be the slogan of the
young people of the city after the
opening of school on Tuesday. Sep
tember 7th. as Chief of Police Man
speaker has announced that on the
day the public schools reopen for the
fall term, the curfew ordinance will
be enforced and the young people
under eighteen, both Rirls and boys
will b required to get oil" the streets
or show good and sufficient reason
why they are out after 9 o'clock, or
have an order from their parents.
During the summer vacation the
polite have allowed the young people
to be on the street until late with
out cny question but such will no
be the case when the long period of
school work is taken up this fall.
While this will be irksome to a
great many, it is a measure that will
meet with the approval of the in
structors in the schools and the par
ents who find it difficult to keep the
young folks at home in the evening
and will undoubtedly be of benefit
to the youngsters themselves
Thp chief of police desires to have
the order understood as applying f.
both the girls and boys and while
many have considered that it was
covering merely the boys they are
mistaken and the girls as well will
be required to answer the curfew
THINK THEY WILL SAVE LEG

Roy Wright, the young hid who
was injured so badly yesterday morn

brought to this city for temporary
treatment, is now doing very nicely
at the Immanuel hospital in Omaha,
where he was taken yesterday noon.
It was found that the wound was
one very difficult to treat as a por
tion of the leg was badly shredded
by the knives of the moving ma
chine and the operation and dressing
was performed by Dr. Hull, one rf
the leading surgeons of Omaha. It
was the opinion of the surgeon that
the leg could be saved and that the
lad would suffer very little effect of
the injury although the case was a
very serious one.

general manager of the I'nion Stock
yards of Omaha, let no grass grow
under his corporation feet in the
matter of complying wth the order
of the state railway commission to
raise switching charges 2" per cent
and no more. Mr. Buckingham as
the general manager of a railway
or that part of the Union Stock
yards company that switches cars
o flivestock to and fro in the largest
stock yards in the west, has tiled
with the state railway commission a
tariff sheet in conformity with the
order of the commission which in
creases freight rates and switching
charges 2.r per cent.
The stock yards is the first rail
road company to comply with the
state commission's order. Its new
tariff was filed to become effective
August 27. The stock yards com
pany is willing to accept the 25 per
cent increase. Other railroad com
panies operating in Nebraska asked
for an increase of 35 per cent. The
stock yards company, by its officers
and attorney, Norris Brown, joined
in the request for a 35 per cent
raise, but it is now willing to accept
what the state commission offered.
There is no change in stick yards
charges for weighing and unload
ing of cars of live stock. The for
mer charge was 25 cents per car for
weighing and 50 cents for loading
The railroads in Nebraska have

Convention Also l-jvors Compulsory
Military Training; Election
of New 0ficers Today.
Frnin Saturday's Dally.
The state convention of the Amer
ican Legion at Hastings occupied a
very busy session yesterday and took
up the important matter of the stand
of the state organization on many
matters of importance.
The resolutions passed strongly
endorsed the four-fold compensation
plan and the support of the measure
known as the bonus bill and which
is intended to give to the service
men some measure of return for their
time of service and is based on the
length of service.
The convention also re-affirmed
its stand in favor of the compulsory
military training as expressed by the
last state convention, as the means
of making the country better pre
pared for any emergency that might
arise ami save the unnecessary loss
of life due to the use of untrained
men in time of war.
Boxing under state regulation
was also favored by t lie convention,
to follow the plan advocated by the
army ami navy boxing commission.
This is to cover ten round bouts.
The convention was addressed by
(Jovernor S. It. McKelvie along pa
triot it lines as well as by Mrs. ('has.
II. Deitrich, president of the League
of Woman Voters ;:nd Mrs. W. A.
Prince of ft rami Island, who spoke

The contest for the next, meeting
place of the Legion was pressed by
Lincoln. Scottsbluff, Grand Island
and Fremont, and in the result the
convention vol id to (cue to Fremont

clared, "in the ov.ly organization in
America in which all t ho elements
in the country are represented. The
more each member realizes that
every element is represented, the
better will he understand the Amer
ican Legion and its ideals. Toler
ance is necessary in order to main
tain an organization like this. And
the development of tolerance, which
can be observed in the legion, is one
f the finest things in it.
When men from the Atlantic to
the Pacific ere members of a great
organization, they must compromise
on the unessential iliat they may
unite in agreement upon the funda
mentals. Will Run the Country
"If you look forward a few years,"
the speaker continued, "you will re
alize that the ex-service men will
run this country. They will run it
not because they are ex-service men,
but because they are picked men.
They were picked because they were
physically, morally aid mentally fit.
And these are the qualities of lead
ership. "They were successful in the war
because of the support they received
from 100.000,000 at home. In civil
life they will be successful in propor
tion that they are able to enlist the
support of the public by deserving
"Unselfish leadership," the com
mander emphasized, "is the quality
that the American Legion should dis
play in its community." Briefly the
commander recalled the beginning
of the American Legion in France.
It was the dream cf about twenty

was started in this country.
"lis object," Mr. IVOlier said, "is
to leen alive the spirit of service
that animates the army, the navy
and the marines, to give to citizen
ship that same unselfish service.
"It is the high ideals of the Ameri

grow in a little over a year to the
present stage where there are 9,700
posts with a membership of more
than a million and a half."
Accomplishments of the Year

abled soldiers, increasing their com
pensation from ?S0 to ?S0 per month.
The care of disabled soldiers will,
he said, always be one of the first
cares of the legion.
The American Legion, he declared,
has been the most potent factor in
curbing the radical element in this
country during the last year.
"It was realized," he said, "that
here was a large group of men used
to force. They were trained in meet
ing force with force, and the radicals
knew that at the drop of the hat the
American Legion was ready to com
bat with force any movement which
threatened the institutions of this
