Other Women Who Drive
Cars Have Trouble Also
Omaha women who run their own, cars
do not appreciate the difficulties and In
conveniences they would have in some of
the lart.er cities, and especially in foreign
countries. Madam Johanna Gadski, the
prima donna, who was- heard here last
night -in concert, is quite an. .enthusiastic
driver, arid while motoring lit Berlin the
alngef had the misfortune of hitting a po
liceman with her car and Injuring his
dignity. Her description of the incident
"A policeman." expTalned the dlvl, "Is,
oil! so high, In Germany. The mishap
happened on the Vnter den Linden, and
the police were Jealous that I should be the
first and only woman to drive a car there.
So, when I bumped into one, I had to go
to court, where there' were all sorts of
dlcagroeable persons. But I got spoken
free; oh, yes, I got spoken free. But when
I came back a few months later, after a
continental ' trip, those odious policemen
had taken the case to another court. 1
got spoken free again, and again, a few
weeks ago. Just before I sailed for Amer
ica, I had to go to a still higher court.
"There were five judges, and the oh!
terrible ordeal lasted several hours. The
judges said I must go to the street to
show that I could drive the car. Outside
were all the spiteful policemen and many
cab drivers. But I showed that I could
drive, and the judges, after a long, solemn
talk, decided that I could keep my license,
provided I wouldn't bump Into any other
octal Brents of Vote at Which

A certain New Jersey cotton mill has.

production has been nearly doubled, and
the cost, due to higher wages, replacements

WHAT'S THE USE OF WARSHIPS
How Eleolrle Shocks Toald Sead
Send Whole Heels to the
Iewis Nixon of NewTork, shipbuilder,
graduate of the I'nlted States Naval
academy, and for several years one of
the chief constructor of the American
navy, flouts the theory that the airship
In any of Its forms will become a for
midable war machine.
Instead, Mr. Nixon believes that the
death-dealing . terror of the war of the
future will be the electric shock.
This conclusion has been forced cpon
bla Judgment by a careful study of the
subject of new war agencies and by
closely watching the maneuvers of the
Wright aeroplane as It sailed up the
Hudson recently and circled the repre
sentatives of the world's greatest navies.
In Mr. Nixon's opinion, warships can
guard against the danger of explosives
that might be dropped upon them by
airships by specially prepared armor. He
believes, though, that sooner or later
there will be perfected a gun or soma
other piece of mechanician! for hurling a
thunderbolt that will shock to death
every man aboard a warship. Irrespec
tive of Its protection.
"I am convinced," said Mr. Nixon to an
American repcrter, "that the thing could
be done now, but the mechanism Is so
crude that the thunderbolt, or eletcrlc
Impulse, would klllN the man who should
release It, as well as the enemy. It Is
possible, of course, that some foreign
nation already has perfected the neces
sary machine with which to hurl this
deadly bolt. I hope, however, that It has
not been done. When the principle Is
mastered the result will make war so hor
ribly destructive that the human race,
through the sheer force of nature's first
law self-preservation will abolish war.
"The aeroplane Is mainly Interesting now
on account of the fact of what may grow
from It. Possibly we shall see them like
swarms of giant locusts flying over am
beyond armies, to occupy positions and U
cut off communications.
"For purposes of observation they will be
of great use. The helicopter, owing to Its
smaller dimensions, seems best adapted to
such uses, especially to be carried on men-of-war.

of weight on the two trucks call for heavy
construction In the trucks themselves.
It has been proposed that a great sav
ing in weight would be effected by re
ducing the length of the cara and substi
tuting llgliter four-wheeled trucks for the
ponderous six-wheeled trucks now In use.
The roof construction could be considerably
lightened by abolishing the end platform
and substituting entrances at the center of
the cars and vestlbullng the car bodies di
rectly against one another.
But the greatest reduction In weight. It
is thought, would come from the substitu
tion of steel for wood and the application
to the design of the cars of those princi
ples of steel construction which have ran

marvel of lightness In proportion to Its
strength and the load it can carry. The
