BOOSTERS CLAD 10 GET IN
Trade Excursionists Home and Happy
After Successful Tour.
BEMIS SIREN HERALDS COMING
Trip Thrnnsh Iowa Was One t .
broke Trlnmph for Omaha, the
Market Tows, and the Beat
With the band playing "We're Here Be
cause We're Here," to the accompaniment
of the big siren whistle, the long train of
tired, but happy boosters pulled Into
Omaha at 7:20 yesterday evening.
The train had been given a clear track
from Fort Dodge, leaving there at o'clock
In the morning, and the boosters visited
some twenty towns between there and
borne. They were given the usual hearty
welcome which has beon accorded them at
every point along the 1.000 miles which
they have covered In the week.
The entire populations of ail the towns
along the route Irom Fort Dodge to Omaha
turned out to bid the people from the
Market Town welcome and the train stop
ped from five to twenty minutes at each
place. At Manning and Harlan the Oma
hana were met Willi automobiles and
escorted over the town and shown all the
sights In a royal manner. .
An attempt was made several times dur
ing the trip to get a moving picture of
the train pulling In at a station and the
crowd alighting from It and mingling with
the crowd, which wilted to weclome them.
At Mlnden the moving picture man was
placed upon a high tressle over the track
and the train backed out of the city down
the track that it had Just come in on. It
then came puffing into the station and the
crowd mingled with the throng on the plat
form while th picture machine did Ha
duty. The engineer, however, seemed to
have gotten his dates mixed and when the
order was given to pull out he started at
auch a terrific rate that the boosters ex
perienced some dlfftitulty in going with It.
The picture machine tyas still doing Hi
duty bravely and ,got It all.
Will Celebrate the Trip.
The excursionists are planning a dinner
to be held at tha Commercial club la cele
bration of the trip as soon as the tourists
feel ab; to atand it and the moving pic
tures are ready to show.
One marked feature of the trip was the
excellent handling by the railroads. Every
thing was sidetracked to allow the' trade
excursion to pass ana at no time during
the entire trip was there any delay.
Every one of the luo men who went
came home little the worse for the wear.
There was not the slightest accident, and
If anyone has any objection to the treat
ment nn ted out to him at any place he
has not reported it.
Secretary J. M. Guild said last night that
he thought this was the largest affair of
its kind ever attempted by any city and
met with remarkable success at every
turn. All worked together like clock work
and have given Omaha the big boost they
started out to do in grand style.
Gllllat waa the last stop made and ths
people there seemed to realize the party
waa pretty well worn out and glad It was
nearlng home, so when the boosters were
marching back to the station after their
tour around the town the band played
"Home, Sweet Home," with a very marked
It was with a feeling of greatest grati
fication that the boosters heard the great
Bemls siren as they atarted across the
bridge and When Union station was reached
each man grabbed his little go-away aack
and made for the trlends who were there
In great numbers to meet them.
NEW FIRE AND POLICE BOARD
WILL WRESTLE WITH WAGES
Will Be Confroated at Once by the
Problem of Adjusting the
Adjustment ot men employed In the fire
and police departments will be put up to
the .new Board of Fire and Police Commis
sioners which takea office Monday. The
old board has worked on the question for
weeks in vain.
City Attorney Burnam has advised the
board that waivers of the Increased pay
accorded by the new charter might not be
legal. A member of either force signing
the waiver could later In the year go into
Court and by setting up the claim that he
was forced to sign the waiver under com
pulsion might secure Judgment alnst
the city for the Increased pay. The city
attorney believes thst the berft thing that
could be done would be to ask the men to
sign a contract to work for a certain
amount for the year. A contract would
hold while there la a possibility thst the
courts might hold the signing of a waiver
Is the same as signing away wages, and
therefore knock out the whole proceedings.
Members of both forces ssy they will
stand by a waiver or anything else they
might sign, but 'the board members say
they cannot be top careful and must guard
against any misconstruction later in the

were sent to all the surrounding towns.
The following schools participated: Glen

given to the team winning most ' prints.
Movers of Tabor had the highest Indi
vidual score, making 23 points.
The rainy weather of several preceding
days caused a slow track and prevented
as large a crowd as usual from attending.
Nevertheless, some good field records were
made. Movers of Tabor cleared 20 feet 7

father. Taking; College Cnnrae.
Frank W. Cooke, father and grandfather,
a student in the school of Journalism, Is
the oldest man enrolled at the University
The heart's desire of most men is to
accumulate fortune, retire from business
and spend their last days In leisure. Not
so with Mr. Cooke. He spent forty-nine
years of his life in growing up and rearing
a family and only after he had a grand
child did he begin his college course. He
entered the school of Journalism last Febru
ary with a determination to get the edu
cation neglected In his youth.
Mr. Cooke Is the father of five children
and the husband of his second wife, but
he takes aa keen Interest In his school work
at "Old Missouri" as does his daughter,
a student in the far off Mills college,
California. She often writes her father
Jollying him about the approach of his flnaJ
examinations and guying him about mak
ing better grades than she.
Two years ago Mr. Cooke waa editing
and managing the Tribune, a weekly news
paper In Hcaldsburg, 8 noma county, Cali
fornia. He was successful in his business
and happy In his home. From his youth,
however, he felt the need of school train
ing. He read In the National Printer Journ
alist something about the establishment
of a school of Journalism. When months
later he read more about the work of
the school his thirst for knowledge became
acute. He sold his newspaper and moved
half way across the continent to Columbia
to begin a four year's course.
Mr. Cooke waa born In a California min
ing lamp in 1890.
Caae of School Boy Who Waa
Chronic Bad Speller.
In an article In McClure a Magatlne on
"The Conservation of the Defective Child'
Marion Hamilton Carter says;
"On a certain afternoon In March, vm.
Miss Margaret T. Maguire, a grade achool
teacher in the Philadelphia public schools,
went to the psychological laboratory of the
University of Pennsylvania accompanied
by a tad f 14. a well mannered. Intelligent
lad. industrious In his school work; one of
her favorite pupils. In fact. Yet thle lad
was the 'bogy' of the teachers who for
seven years had him In their classes; he
was a chronic bad speller. Thle does not
mean that he misspelled some words some
times. He misspelled, every word always,
and did It In the same csreful and serious
manner with which he recited the history
lesson he loved. Hla reading waa as bad
aa his speillng; h(T was absolutely Incapa
ble of getting through a single sentence
correctly, a, an, and, the and a few three
letter words being ths net result of his
seven years' schooling.
"Dr. Wltmer, the head of the laboratory,
made a long examination, the result of
wtitch was the discovery that Charles Gil
man had an ocular defect never, In all
these years, so mtirh as suspected by either
his parents or his teachers: at the distance
of about three feet the boy saw everything
double; 'he lacked the power to direct the
two ej-ea co-ordinately Upon the same point
In space, the left eye looking a little higher
than the right.' A page of ordinary print
was thus a blur; whenever he sttempted to
write, the words doubled under his pen. He
was fitted with glasses and later operated
upon; then for the first time In his life the
printed psge and the words he was tracing
with his pen were clear."

The agitation concerning a new form of
student government has resulted In the
formation of a ntw constitution by the
committee which was appointed from each
of the classes. According to this system,
there will be a council of fourteen mem
bers, of whom eight will be eenl rs, three
under-classmen and three members of the
faculty. The purpose of the new council
is to furnish an adequate organisation for
the carrying out of various Interests.
Both the general education board and
Mr. Carnegie have pajtd their conditional
pledges to the college treasurer. This gives
tha finishing touch to the great campaign
by which the endowment of the Institution
was increased $&oo,oo0.
