Connell Puts Ban
on Frozen Potatoes
Health Commissioner K. W. Connell has
Issued a warning to Omaha people
against the purchase of froien potatoes,
which, he says, are being, sold by many
dealers In Omaha.
"In a great many cases," says Dr.
Connell, "I have found1 that 'potatoes
shipped In, especially from Michigan and
South Dakota, are partly frozen. Because
only a part of them are frozen I have
not been Justified In condemning entire
cars at a time, but after examining fif
teen carloads, I have had them sorted
and the frozen ones taken out. People
should investigate beforo they buy po
tatoes, for they aro likely to find their
purchases decaying in a few days If they

department in conjunction with Mrs.

Fullerton Man is
. Sought by Parents
Claude E. Bailey, aged 39, of Fullerton,
Neb., Lade his father and mother good
bye ut the station at Perclval, la., Sun
day evening, October 29. Since then no
one who knows him has either seen him
or beard from hlrn. His father, A. H.
Bailey of perclval. Is in Omaha trying to
secure some duo to his son's where
abouts. A Hearch through hotel registers
failed to show that Claude Bailey regis
tered here, although he was to stop In
Omuha Sunday night and go on to Fuller
tun next day.
Young Bulley has been farming near
Fullerton and owns the land he was
working. He told bis parents, when
leaving Perclval, that he expected to be
married in tho spring and would bring
his wife back to visit them. He ha i no
troubles or worrits that his parents know
anything about and they fear he may
have met with an accident.
Dr. W. M. Davidson
and Henry Curtis
to Social Workers
The Omaha Social Service club had the
largest turnout . In Its history Saturday
at noon, to do honor to Dr. William
M. Davidson, formerly superintendent of
the Omaha public schools, and Henry
R. Curtis, prominently Identified with
the movement for organised playgrounds.
Over 1C0 sat down to lunch In the large
banquet room at the Home. Judge Sut
ton, president of the club, wn ably
assisted by Cecretary E. F. Denlson and
Mrs. Draper Smith in the arrangements
for tho luncheon, which was attended by
city officials, Judges, teachers, social
settlement workers, playground pro
motors, newsprpir men and members of
the Omaha School and Park boards.
Mr, Curtis told of the steps taken to
organize the- playgro.md campaign In
Washington and other' places, and ad
vised that those Interested In Omaha
adopt romo definite plan and work ut It
without tiring. He thought thst event
ually at least twenty-four r'avgrounds
would be lequired, one for each squurc
mile of territory. At tho beginning, he
said, tho.e enlisted In the work should
find out Jun what plots the clt oim
that might be devoted to playground uses,
nnd asserted that once the plan Is prop
erly started It will bo no trouble to carry
it to full fruition.
Dr. Davidson made an Inspiring ad
dress, during tho progress of which be
several tlm?s admitted that Omaha Is
one of tho grandest young cities in the
world. He also congratulated his hcVrers
on the fact that nnwhero in the country
are there any better schools than light
here, and nowhere Is the physlral training
feature better developrl or athletics more
wisely cultivated. Using tho wrest ca
thedral of Cologne as an object lesson
conceived as an Ideal In one man's
henrt and carried through six cen
turies to completion ha urged that
the small groups now interested
In movements for social service, play
grounds, child labor and tho like hold fast
to their Ideal and work for It through
every discouragement until eventually
thousands will be interested In these
good things where no'w there ore but
dozens. "Hut when you get these play
grounds," he said, "see that there Is a
man behind each one, a director who will
make the piny effective nnd not a flow
them to become useless and covered with
dust." Dr. Davidson illustrated his
thought by raying that he would rather
have one inspired teacher with a piece
of chulk and a blackboard than all the
chnrts that ever wero made, IC they had
no teacher behind them.

Exeimihe the Chassis First
Recent advertising of electric vehicles lays
stress on tires, batteries and bodies, as
though these were the most vital parts of
the machine. They are not. The im-,
portant thing in any motor car is the
chassis. ' Upon motor, driving ' systerrr,',,":"
and brakes depend the safety and effi
' ciency of your car. The rest are acces
sories furnished to suit purchasers.
The secret of the Baker's dlent, smooth running:,
its simple control, its freedom from accident, its
low consumption of current, its unusual mileage,
is the Baker chassis. Be sure to see it before
purchasing any electric motor car.
