CHILD SAVING INSTITUTE, OMAHA
Some Facts and Figures From Annual
Three hundred and sixteen Nebras
ka children of all ages and in all con
ditions, deserted, orphaned and some
left to die because of physical help
lessness, have been taken into shel
ter, sheii medical attention and ex
pert nurses can and all but thirty-1
nine of them placed in good homes at
a cost of $4J.05 each.
Such is the remarkable story told
in the annual report of the Child Sav
ing Institute, an Omaha home for de
serted and orphaned children of Ne
braska, which is supported entirely
by voluntary gifts of the people. The
report is just out showing receipts
of $14.S:t; and expenditures for
i twelve months of $1 lfi'2. For thir
teen years the institute has been do
ing this work and has provided tem
porary shelter and given into good
homes I'.S'tO children. Less than half
of these are children of Omaha par
entsthey have been brought to the
institute from all over the state wher
ever the call for help has been sent.
To make it possible for the men
and women interested in the work to
care for moie children, the people of
Omaha have just given the institute
a new and substantial home with

! One of the mol important features
.of ilu Child having Institute work is
( the meuica! attention !hen babies.
Ft nut the time they arrive at the in
stitute until they are placed in per
iiiam tit homes they are watched by
the mo.-t skilled physicians, who do
nate their services absolutely free of
charge, and nurses who work for a
mere piinnre. Sometimes an orphan
receives attention from the medical
stalf or has an operation performed
to enable the child to develop, which
would cost the average family hun
dred of dollars. The proper food is
also given them and they are thus
brought back to life.
With this amount ot work being
done for the children those adopting
them are sure the children they take
are above the average in health--they
j have a fair start physically when
they go to good homes.
I Just now the institute is making a
I campaign to secure regular subserip- j
lions to its maintenance fund anif do-
nations from the people out over the
i Mate of Nebraska from where nio.M of
,' the children :nul babies come. The
' people of Omaha are contributing
' more than their proportion to the
work and will continue to do so. but
it is the earnest desire of those back
or the work to have people out over
Nebraska send in donations and thus
j help meet expenses.

Washington Representative Champ
Clark issued a statement fully outlin
ing his platform as the prospective
speaker of the democratic house of
representatives in the .:iext congress.
He proclaims himself in favor M the
appointment of committees of the
house by a committee, rather than by
the speaker and he states his belief
that the tariff should be revised,
schedule by .schedule, rather titan in
one single hill. Those two subjects,
says Mr. Clark, the the ones upon
which he has been r-ntiuually impor
tuned to make some statement.
The democratb members of the
house sent out a call Tor a caucus

hership of th next house of repre
sentatives. Mr. Clark's statement is
both an explanation of the call ami a
declaration tf his tw n platform as the
probable speaker of tin- himo.
The caucus will select a way and
mean.-N committee ami a rules com
mittee, soiiiewhaie larger than the
present committee of seven. Mr. Clark
believes one uf these committees
should be empower.! to -"elect the
other committees of the house
"There are two theories ot tariff
revision."' says Mr. Cla.-k. in hi
statement. "Revision by one general
bill and revision by separate bills for
separate schedules. This is a matte;
not ot principle, but of method. j
"Indi. hlual'y I prefer the scheme m I
separate bills tor separate schedule.-., i
taking the .-chedule-. with tue i
most obnoxious features lirst. per-;
haps in ci rtain cases having sepa
rate bills for particular items."

norance in certain quarters." says Mr.
Clark, "that President Taft or Sena

Springer was chairman of the com

renown and the sobriquet of "Quinine

Mr. Clark declares that he is heart

all the democratic members-elect. He j
goes on to say that his efforts for the
last two years have been directed to I
the unification of the democrats in i
the house, and for that reason the!

opportunity, if that unification is to!
be maintained, to express their
