HE Hesitation waltz Is gaining popularity, especially since the tennis
T tournament last week. This waits originated In St Louts, and Is
the favorite danco with both Roland Hoorr and Drummond Jones,
the St. Louis tennis champions. These young men bare been at
tending tournaments at Louisville, Kansas City, Chicago and other cities,
and everywhere they went they danced the Hesitation waltz.
Tho Chicago Record-Herald describes the new waltz as follows:
"Tho hesitation waltz is a waltz with a different accent a waltz
specially adapted to hot weather and lelsurellness. It is to the well known
variety of waltz and Boston what Iced coffee is to the hot nectar you have
for breakfast. My comments in this column on the popularity of the 'hes
itation' has brought requests from readers living outsldo of Chicago and
8t. Louis from which latter city the 'hesitation' camo for a dotalled de
scription of tho dance, and so, In so far as a mere writer may hopo to do
the work of a dancing master, hero Is tho 'Hesitation':
"You take first one long, hesitating step, then two short ones. Tho
man's weight is on his left fodt, the woman's on hor.right; the other feet
wing in the air. Tho only reverses are to the -loft, ndvor to the right.
You tako two straight stops to tho loft and four revorao steps to the loft,
then two straight steps and four reverse Tho purposo of tho straight step
is merely to keep you from getting dlzxy,
"I hope this is as plain- a a-mo'dern dance may bo and that the hesi
tating stop may find its faltoring way wherever peoplo love to danco and

OMAHANS PROMOTED IN NAYY
Four Graduates of Local Hieh School
Now Junior Lieutenants.

Four Omaha boys, all graduates of,the
Omaha High school of 1901, have been
promoted to naval lieutenants, Junior
class. The new lieutenants are D. C.
Patterson. Jr.; Alexander Charlton,
Charles J. Wllle and Harry D. McGutrc.
The four boys received their elementary
education In the grammar schools or
OmahaNand their academic education In
the high school. They were excellent
students at the high school and as all
aspired to enter the navy they secured
appointments to the United States naval
academy at Annapolis.
None of the embryo officers had dif
ficulty In passing the stringent examina
tions required for entrance and they
went through tho naval academy with
high honors. Out of the total number
Pl 300 that entered the class of 190$, but
155 succeeded In successfully completing
the course, Including the four cadets
The four graduates were appointed to
tho offices of midshipmen which they
held for two years. After their terms as
midshipmen Were completed they became
ensigns for three years. This spring tho
ensigns studied for the examinations for
Junior grade lieutenants and they all
passed the examinations which, In con-
Junction with their excellent record at
Annapolis, secured them their promo
tions. Patterson and Charlton nre both con
nected with the Atlantlo squadron, Pat
terson is on the flagship Wyoming. Mc
Gulro is in tho Asiatic squadron and
Wllle in the Pacific squadron.
Patterson distinguished himself about
a year and a half ago when he was the
engineering officer on the Dixie, a mother
ship to a flotilla of torpedo boats. The
fleet of little crafts was caught in a hur
ricane of the coast of Bermuda and the
Dixie suffered a leak in the hold. The
suction pumps that are used to draw the
water from the hold were- out of order
and the ship was In immediate danger nt
sinkings Patterson, who has made con
siderable study of engineering, conceived
the Idea of connecting the pipe-line,
which draws water for the boilers from
the ocean, with the leaking hold. The
water which rushed Into the ship through
the aeaplng hulk was drawn Into the
boilers to make steam and the Dixie
weathered the gale.
Patterson was accorded apodal com
mendation by the secretory1 of the navy
for his excellent engineering. The chief
of the engineers at the time attempted
to persuade the young officer to make
engineering his specialty, but Patterson
preferred to remain in the service which
would enabe him to engage In actual
warfare If the opportunity should pre
Omaha friends are elated over the pro
motion of the Omaha boys, who appear)
to oe natural sailors and born officers,
and predict that they will continue to
rise In the sert.ee. Their records graphi
cally represents the superiority of
Omaha's educational system, which gave
them such .a sufficiency of knowledge
that they entered the service of their
country soon after they became of age.
to Admit Liability
Joseph W. Woodrough, Omaha at
torney, has brought suit against the
Germahla Life Insurance company In
district court because the company has
repudiated an estimate of the amount
of money due at the end of twenty years.
which, to the form of a slip of paper, was1
pasted on the policy.
Mr. Woodrough alleges that when he
secured the policy In 1905 he was led to
believe by the agent, Joseph B. Clarke,
that he would be able to make a cash
settlement of 2,56S in 1925, 1.S50 of which
would bo guaranteed and the tcmaindet
estimated, and, he aitsocts, that a slip
of paper giving this impression was
lasted on his policy. The policy Insured
his life for $2,500.
Mr. Woodrough nsk that the company
be required to admit liability for the
amount which he says will be due aftel
he has paid premiums until 1923 or bo
forced to return tho money already paid
In by him.
