LINCOLN. rU. Si. (Special Telegram.)
P. P. Corrlck. tecreunr of the Nebraska
La Follette league, this afternoon Tied a
petition to hava the name of La FVllette
placed on tha primary ballot as a prefer
enUal candidate for president.. In making
the filing he Issued a statement In which
ae. sara that In doing eo he performs a
duty to the many friends ot the Wiscon
sin senator and his promise to the or
ganlsation formed In his Interests.'
"It la perhaps neves sary to say. In view
of the many assurances given recently by
the senator and those authorised to sneak
for hint." said Mr. Corrlck. "that he will
remain a candidate until the nomination
la made ta the republican national con
vention. I wish also to say that the
mangers of Senator La Follette acquiesce
In the work of the progressive republican
conference held In Lincoln February 12
and will aid In securing- the election of
the ticket there agreed upon." '
Among the avowed Roosevelt men In
the city, such as Governor Aldrich, It Is
not thought likely a separate Koosevelt
ticket will be put up. but that they will
concentrate their energies In obtaining a
preferable vote in hia favor.
There are about 300 names signed to the
petition filed this afternoon, but Mr. Cer
rlok aald It was the Intention to file
others as rapidly as they were received at
Walt Yet taaeelaea.
Secretary, Walt saJd today that not
withstanding reports that hare been cir
culated he had not decided what he would
do In regard to putting a designation after
the names of candidate for delegate to
the national conventions other than the
simple party designation. One thilng.
however, he did say and that was that
any designation put after candidate's
nam most be at the request ot the can
didate and not that of managers of any
faction of a party.
J. 8. Ferguson of Custer county, who
some time ago wrote the secretary of
stat Indicating he Intended to file as a
candidate for the United States senate,

It is largely a question of food knowledge and food
sense. An intelligent selection of food means less
waste, smaller grocery bills, better health, better
nourished bodies. The least nutritious foods are
often the most expensive. For breakfast take two
and heat them in the oven to restore crispness and
then pour hot milk over them, and you have a
warm nourishing meal that will supply all the
strength needed for a half day's work, at a cost
of four or five cents.
