Favored Direct Election. '
The house went on record ns favor
ing direct election' of senators and
recommended II. R. ICC, tho bill for
tho ratification of this amendment to
tho federal constitution, for third
reading. There was no opposition.
This bill was mado the special order,
on motion of Norton, who said that
Nebraska ought not to bo behind tho
other states in ratifying this amend,
Tho 'efficiency committee of the
Benato will report shortly a plan for
the alteration of tho stnto capltol
building, which is looked to dissipate
capltol removal and new capltol talk
for several ycarB to come. Tho
changcB to bo recommended have not
been outlined In full, but will follow
an Investigation which hns been made
by tho committeemen with tho assist
unco of Stato Architect Burd Miller of
Omahn. Storage rooms in tho base
ment or tho building are to bo con
verted Into offices and passageways
In that section or tho building nre to
bo shaped in Bitch a way that they
can bo traversed. Various totlot
rooms about tho building are to glvo
way to two largo toilet roomB nnd in
severnl instances office partitions will
be taken down to provide more room
ror tho departments.
Must Be Careful of Title.
Musical schools or other educa
tional Institutions not affiliated with
with tho University or Nebraska, but
which uso titles belonging to that In
stitution or uso advertising material
Indicating that they nro a part thereof
will be liable to n lino ir n bill intro
duced in tho senate by Hoagland of
Lancnstor becomcB n law. The step
Is to meet a local condition which has
existed for ho mo tlmo past and which
involves a prlvnto musical college
located near tho university.
No Removal of Orthopedic.
Tho plan or removing the orthopedic
hospital to tho stnto medical college
campus has been abandoned by tho
originators of tho movement, because
they have discovered that tho now
constitutional amendment places tho
Institution under tho care of tho state
board of control. It is understood tho
regonts of tho university would not
consont to tho removal of tho hospital
to tho medical college campus unloss
the board of regents s given control
FEED THEIR SOLDIERS POORLY
European Nations the Reverse of
Liberal to Their Defenders, at
Least In Times of Peace.
Wellington said that "our battles
are won on tho playing fields ot
Eton," but modern military command
ers are inclined to bolleve that the
soldier fights "on his stomach."
Of all European soldiers Tommy At
kins Is tho best fod. Tho continental
soldier never gets a meal to bo com
pared to tho hot joint, vegetables, pud
ding, cheese and beer enjoyed by our
men, says Stray Stories.
In Frnnce the, soldier getB a cup of
blnck coffee on rising. Ho hns to
work on nn empty stomach till noon,
when he gets a pound or brend (hle
day's allowance), nnd hashed mutton
or beer, with potatoes. His drink Is
water, unless ho has money to buy
At C o'clock he has n second meaL
consisting or boiled beer nnd brend.
He gets nothing more till morning"
cofToe on tho following day.
Tho German soldier rnres oven
worse. Coffee nt 5 a. m., stewed meat,
potatoes and bread at noon nnd a
pinto or soup nt night nro considered
to be enough ror linns. As n matter
or ract, many soldiers receive cither
money or rood rrom their parents, as.
the rations are clenrly inadequato.
The Swedish soldier Ib not badly
red. He has n good breakrast, con
sisting or coffee, brend nnd butter,
pickled fish nnd potatoes. Ho dines
nt 2 o'clock and Is entitled to a plato
of soup, vegetables, roast meat or
bacon. Supper at S, which consists ot
a plate of soup, finishes tho day.
Tho Austrian soldier fares no bet
ter than his German comrado. except
when ho Is on nctlvn service. Then
ho hns two solid meals a day Instead
Tho Italian holdicr Is about tho
worst fed of all. In time of peaco ho
Is practlcnlly a vegetarian.. Ho gets
ment regularly when he Is fighting,
otherwlso macaroni nnd similar foods
constitute his "ordinnry."
Tho Rupslnn Is not much better off
ns regards food, hut may drink either
beer or ten. Ho has two mealB a day:
dinner, composed of gruel or cab
bage Botip. and a piece of beer or fish.
For supper he getB only a plato ot
Thirteen the Lucky Number.
That 13 was a lucky number for
the Americans In tho war of tho rev
olution, when 13 colonies revolted nnd
formed the United States, was recog
nized by a London newspaper of 177C
It asserted that tho "rebels" consid
ered tho number lucky, and attributed
to a party of returned naval prisoners
tho mocking statement thnt "13 dried
clams were a rebel's dally ration; that
Washington had 13 toes and 13 teeth
In each jaw; that tho regular rebel
family comprised 13 children.
