Dr. Kelly Tells Medical Alumni Not
Necessary to Scatter It
SOMETHING WRONG WITH CITY
Eastern Man In Speech at Bnnfltiet
Says Poor Also Are Untitled P
Protection of Thetr Itesl
"If the soclat evil remains scattered
through your city after you havo closed
your district, then there is something
wrong with you or with your police sys
tem or both," said Prof. Howard A.
Kelly, professor of gynecology, Johns
Hopkins university, tn his talk at the an
nual banquet of the alumni of the Uni
versity of Nebraska College of Medlclno
at the University club last night Over
200 men and women were present. Trot,
Kelly admitted that tho social evil was
somewhat removed from the subject
upon which he was supposed to talk, but
raid that his medical and surgical work
brought him constantly face to faco with
the results of the social evil In districts.
"These restricted districts aro where
most of the diseases come from," he
"Wilmington, N. C," ho asserted,
'cleaned up its district two years ago
and it has succeeded In cleaning up the
town. I got a splendid letter from a
lromlncnt man there a few days ago
stating that the situation had been ef
fectively handled there with the aid of
an efficient police system. It these peo
ple scatter tn your city they come near
you, end if you don't get rid of them
there is something wrong with you.
"Some have argued that when you
drive them out of the districts they go
into the residence districts. I think that
is about the worst argument I ever heard,
as if we who have means were the only
ones who have a residence district; as it
those who live in the lower and poorer
rart of the city, whose children are con
ftantly subjected to the temptation and
the Influence of the "district" next door,
Aid not have a residence district also."
Vrgtm Clean Cities.
Prof. Kelly also touch on general
sanitation of cities, saying. "A dirt)'
city is an Immoral city. You haye no
rrore right to have a dirty city than to
have n dirty house." He mentioned
many disease such aa typhoid fever, eye
trouble, throat trouble, and a host of
others that come directly from unsanitary
conditions of tho city, and added,
ddubt not that when tho truth shall be
discovered, It will be learned that cancer
also comes from tho same source."
Regent Ueorgo Coupland of the Unl
verslty of Nebraska College of Medicine
spoke on the medical school and the
public, touching on tho relation of the
Institution to the welfare of the people
at large. Prof. Henry B. Ward of the
University of Illinois spoke on the medi
cal school and its place in the research
work of tho world. Chancellor Samuel
Avery spoke of the medical school as a
component part of a great university, and
touched on tho completion of the first
building in Omaha for the great medical
school of the University of Nebraska.

Parents Are Bidden
to Supervise Work
of Their Children
"It is the duty of ever' mother and fa-
ther In Omaha who has a son or daugh
ter In the high school to take a vital in
terest In that son or daughter's work at
the school," declared Principal Kate A.
McIIugh of the high school, to a large
gathering ot parents and former eighth
grade teachers ot entering freshmen nt
the freshmen reception held tn tho school
auditorium last evening.
'Tho parents ot high school students
should primarily old the pupils In the se
lection ot the proper subjects," the prin
cipal said. "Many ot the unfortunate
scenes at graduation, when a student
realties that he or she has chosen the
wrong studies to prepare them for their
college course, would be avoided It a
slight supervision on the parents' port ot
their child's selection oP subjects wero
Fully seven hundred parents ot fresh
men pupils at the high school wore pres
ent at tho recaption, which is the first
of a series which Mlaa-McHugh Is con
templating this fall nnd winter for the
purpose ot putting the people of Omaha
in closer touch with the school and Its
work for the community."
The meeting was in charge ot the
treshmon representatives on the student
council, Roderick LaTlonue and Nora
McDougal. LaRoque presided and Intro
duced the speakers of tho evening, Miss
McIIugh and Superintendent E. U, Graft
of the Board of Education.
Superintendent Graft deplored the fact
that such a large number of students
dropped their work in the school at the
end ot their second or third years. Ho
stated that national statistics showed that
of all the pupils who enter high school
In the country only 1J per cent oomploto
the four years' course.

also to Secretary of Htste W. J. Uryan,
both of whom he says he knows per-(
He urged that pains be taken to secure
a better understanding between the
United States and the Latin-American
countries. "A better understanding- and
a reciprocal knowledge," he said, "should
form a foundation for an ever-Increasing
trade between the United States and

quoted an epigram from W. J. Aryan,

of Currency Bill
At a meeting of the Omaha Credit
Men's association, composed of repre
sentatives of the larger mercantile houses
of the city, at the Loyal hotel, J. D.
Haynes discussed "How the Pending Cur
rency mil Would Contract Credits." He
"Itecent events have aroused our lead
ing merchants, who have come to realise
the full linuort of the Drovlilons of the
lllass-Owen currency bill and the Injuri-!
ous effect it Is suro to have upon the
business of Jobbers, manufacturers,
packers, stockmen, gralnmen and farm
ers. Thny are alarmed nt the absolute
certainty that the bill, If enacted, will
bring about a very serious contraction of
credits, not only In the west, but
throughout the whole country. This Is
a vital defect of the bill which cannot
fall to work hardships upon business con
cerns, large and small.
"For Instance, the banks of. Omaha, un
der the operation of the proposed law,
will lose from 17,000,000 to fS.000.G04 of
their deposits. In order to mnke up for
this loss they must ask for a correspond
ing reduction In their loans say of CO
per cent, or about Ji,000,000. This means
that the Jobbing, manufacturing and
packing houses and grain dealers of this
section must reduce their lines of credit
in their local banks all the way from SO
to 40 per cent. This In turn means the
enforced cutting down of their business,
a corresponding reduction In the stocks
of goods on hand and a reduction In the
number of traveling men now on the road
selling goods, with a proportionate reduc
tion of employes In all departments of
"Nor will the banks escape this en
forced retrenchment. Kvery large busi
ness house that Is borrowing money will
be compelled to curtail Its business and
reduce the number of Its employes."
