ON RED CROSS EXPLOITATION'!
Overzealouaness of Magazines is
Blamed for Misunderstanding.

OMAHA, April U.-To the Kdltor of The
Uee. Apropos of the American Iletl' Cross
you arc quite correct In your editorial
of the Slit Instant, when you censure the
"over-zealous magazine exploitation" of
lied Cross work, for this nnd this atone
li responsible for a prevalent and local
misunderstanding of the greatest Inter
national relief agency ' In the world. To
the undersigned It has been a matter 6f
regret that the magnificent record of our
American lied Cross whs practically un
known In this part of tho country, except
of course at those points where disaster
had brought Its ministrations and with
them an opportunity to the people to
rightly value this -great work. Having
for five year represented one branch of
Hcd Cross effort In the caraclty of state
agent for the Red Cross Christmas seals,'
the writer has had opportunity to learn
how very little was known of Hed Cross
except thre-ugh'the medium of aforesaid
aver-zealous mngaxlne articles, some of
which have been nlmost ludicrously mis
leading, Pnrpose of Chnptrrs.
About three years ago the writer wns re
quested by Ernest C. Illoknell, director
of the Amprlcan rted Cross, to suggest
name of prominent Nebraska men for the
formation of a state Hed Cross chapter,
j such as Is In existence In nearly every
1 other state In the union. These chapters
are formed with- two purposes In view;
First, to be In readiness to receive con
tributions for Just such emergencies as
the Omaha tornado and, second, to raise
the state's portion of a permanent endow
ment fund designed to place the American
Red Cross ofi such a basis financially as
to render unnecessary the calls for as
sistance at times of disaster. This plan
m earnestly favored by cx-Prcsldent
Tftft, who has been president of the
Xmerican Red Cross for a number of
years. In this connection, It may be of
interest to know that a largo number of
states have already raised their endow
t meht quota (which fs based on population)
attd that Jfew York raised theirs by far
the largest In record time. From the
names submitted the following wer chosen
for the' Nebraska Red Cross chapter:
Joseph Oberfelder, Sidney! P. U Hall ami J
Henry If. 'Wilson.' Lincoln; C. Frank
"Jleavls, Kali's City; Edward A. Cudahy
and Ourdon W. "Wattles, Omaha; R. D,

It might bo said In passing and with

T,urslderail misunderstanding regarding
r4ol Cross methods would , hayo , beep,

from Civil Service
WASHINGTON. April 26. -The Inter
state Commerce commission, preparing
for the work of making a physical valu
ation of rullrpods, In accordance with the
provlstAns of a recent act of congress, Is
about to announce the personnel of an
advisory board of five engineers, which
will assist the commission In formulating
plans for the work. This board will have
direct chargo ot tha valuation work In
verious sections of the country.
Approximately 10,000 applications for
positions In the physical valuation ser
vice of tho commission have been re
ceived. It Is expected that eventually sev
eral hundred employes wll be engaged
upon the work, but It Is announced by
the commission that with tho exception
of the flvo members of the advisory
board and of perhaps a like number of
administrative heads of other depart
ments of the work, all employes will bo
scoured through the civil service com
mission. It was suggested, originally by tho com
mission that many of tho engineers and
experts should be excepted expressly by
order of the president from the operation
ot the civil service law. It was under
stood that this proposition was presented
to President Wilson and that he held
that none of the employes, except those
Indicated, should be excepted by execu
Work tleolns Boon.
The advisory board will convene here
shortly after May I and, In co-operation
with the commission, will work out the
engineering details ot the proposed valua
tion. The direction of the valuation work
along lines approved by the commission
will be delegated to Commissioner Prouty.
A general advisory board of three men,
regarded as especially competent nnd
fully equapped to handle the largo ques
tions presented, will be created by the
commission to work with tho commission
and the engineering board.
Tentative valuation reached by the com
mission must be submitted to the carriers
Interested, to the Department of Justice
and to the governors of stntes In which
the properties are located. Protests
against the valuations must be filed
within thirty days and If no protest bo
filed the valuation becomes final.
It Is regarded ns scarcely likely that the
work of valuing physically the railroads
of the United States can be completed
under five years. How must It will cost
Is largely conjecture but the lowest esti
mate made by those who have any In
telligent Idea of It Is $1,800,000 a year.

HOW TO PUT AWAY FURS!

Always avoid crushing furs and ar
range to have them hang If possible.
Sprinkle them generously with camphor
flakes or moth bolls nnd place them In a
bag mode as follows:
Take four full sized sheets of a printed
newspaper, bw around three sides
on the sewing machine, with a long
stitch, making a double bag. Place
within thoroughly brushed and aired furs.
Turn a deep fold of tho paper at the top.
sew with machine, and catch at top with
two large safety pins by which to sus

taken to have the, bog perfectly tight and
unbroken. Or they may be put away
In a box as follows:
After thoroughly cleaning and airing
place furs In tho smallest box that will
hold them, without crowding. The box
Should be lined with a piece of printed
newspaper and a piece should be put
over them and tucked In at the sides
and ends. Seal the box securely by
gumming two-Inch strips-of newspaper to
the box and cover where they. meet.

Dress skirts should be carefully

dust Is out, and also hung In long

should not be folded; two may ?bo In
