Omaha Stadium Tuesday.

Where Speed Demons Will Strive
Keenly interested In the Stadium speed
way down In Kat Omaha is LawTence
IHeckensteln of Denver, holder of a string
of motorcycle racing records that Is aa
long aa a rope.
"Speedways may come and speedways
may go. but tho hoard speedway will go
en forever."
This Is the way Fleekjristeln writes to
Jack S. Prince, builder of all the principal
racing; stadiums In the United 8tates, and
the man who. Is erecting the track In
Omaha that Is calculated to make this
city the center of motorcycle racing for
the world.
"When the first really plank speedway
ras built out at Flays! Del Rey. near
Ixis Angeles." Fleckensteln continues,
the wise ones gave It 'up and down' and
promptly declared it out of the running.
The first meet that was held at the Del
Key motordrome, however, caused the
whole world to sit up and take notice.
Jlay Harroun, the winner of the lKV-mile
vent, averaged eighty-five miles an hour
for the entire oentury."
And this Is Just the sort of a track
Prince Is erecting here in Omaha. It is
located on a large tract of ground Just
north of Locust street car line, at the
point where It branches toward the Car
tel" Iake and Toung Men's Christian As
sociation clubs. It Is, to be exact, at the
Intersection of Thirteenth street and
A venue K.
Preliminaries Tuesday.
When Prince started his big track he
promised to have It completed within
twelve days. He expects to have the pre
liminary speed trials staged Tuesday
afternoon, and they will be open to any
one who cares, to witness them.
The riding surface of the track meas
ures exactly a third of a mile from start
to finish. Thus It will require three trips
around the track to complete a mile. A
competent surveyor has measured the
surface and haa given a certificate to the
effect that it Is exact In all its measure
Officials of the street railway company
have promised no less than a tnree-minuie
service to the doors of the stadium on any
day that an event Is to be held there
This in Itself means that you can leave
fiucteenth and Farnam and reach the
track within fifteen minutes.
John I Donovan of Chicago, chairman
of the American Feedratlon officials, will
lie on hand to start the first day's events

Old Field to Race.
One of the biggest sporting events of
the season is being arranged between
Prince, Barney Oldfield and Lincoln
Beachy, the daring air pilot who Is to fly
In Omaha during Ak-Sar-Ben. It is pro
posed to have Oldfield, in a diminutive
Peugot, race against Beachy, In his
aeroplane, on the stadium. Oldfield has
agreed to the proposition. This event will
be staged some time after the Ak-Sar-Ben
Principal among the motoreyplists who

"Any changes lri tho style's of men's
clothes from one season to another are
always somewhat difficult to clearly de
fine," says Ludwig Stein of the House
of Kuppenhelmer in reply to a query
as to what the vogue for men will be
this fall.
"Nevertheless," he continued, "there
are always some distinct changes, and
rwhlle they might not be sufficiently radl
Ical to be noticeable to the public, they
are most apparent to the trained eye of
the clothing manufacturer and his de
signing staff and of necessity are closely
"fPtyle may be aptly defined aa a com
bination of something new and something
correct, and before I attempt to give
any resume If what the change In styles
for men will be -this fall it might be In
teresting to note the origin of these new
styles; In fact, of all styles for men, for
to be new and yet correct, styles for
men must have an authoritative source as
those for women.
"One finds the subject of dress among
the men of England, who make sport
their life's work, or among the armty'
and navy officers, an important and time
engrossing subject. It is among these
men such men as we recently watched
lift the polo cup that styles originate.
They give expression to their own Indi
viduality of taste and training in their
clothes. We American clothing manufac-

men, siuay meir inaiviauniuiea, uro wna.i
as the case may be to fit American taste
and climatic conditions. e
'.'The changes in men's stylea for the
coming fall are along lines that I per
sonally will be most gratified to see, In
asmuch as there is a tendency to give
the figures a more natural appearance of
greater strength. The smartly correct
coat has a somewhat higher waist Une
fitting enugly about the upper part of
the back, and draping away gracefully
from the circumference line of the body
Just beneath the lower rib.
"The waist of the coat Is not so tightly
fitting as last season, and as I have said
draped more fully over the hips. It is still
mart to wear the lapels rolled to the sec
ond button, but both lapel and chest lie
flat against body without the notice
able chest bulge."
While there ia a possibility of New
Tork apples coming to Nebraska to be
old, Nebraska apples are actually going
to New York, where they are said to
command the highest market price, owing
to their superior flavor, color and keep

In Event Men Do Not Voluntarily
Rise to Army Needs Government
May Have to Resort to
LONDON, Rep. 19. The parliamentary
committee of the Trades Union congress,
after a two days' conference, today Issued
a manifesto to trade unionists of the
country on the war. The committee was
especially gratified at the manner In
which the labor party in the House of
Commons responded to the appeal made
to all parties to help in the defense of
the country.
The manifesto proceeds, "The commit
tee is convinced that one important factor
In the present struggle is, that in event
of the voluntary system of military serv
ice falling, the demand for a national
system of compulsory military service will
not only be made with redoubted vigor,
but may prove to be ao persistent and
strong as to become irrestlble. The "pros
pect of having to face conscription, with
its permanent and heavy burden upon the
financial resources of the country, and
Its equally burdensome effect upon nearly
the whole of its Industries, should in it
self stimulate the manhood of the nation
to come forward in itu defense, and
thereby demonstrate to the world that
a free people can rise to the supreme
heights of a great sacrifice without the
whip of conscription.
"Another factor to be remembered is
that upon the result of the struggle in
which this country is now engaged rests
the preservation and maintenance of free
and unfettered democratic government.
which In its international relationship '
has In the past been recognized and must
(unquestionably prove to be tho best
guarantee for preservation of the peace
of the world.
Hard on the People.
"The mere contemplation of the over
bearing and brutal methods to which peo
ple have to submit under a government
controlled by a military autocracy living,
as It were, continually under the threat
and shadow of war should be sufficient
to arouse the enthunlaem of the nation In
resisting to Impose similar conditions
upon countries at present free from mili
tary despotism.
"But if men have a duty to perform
in the common Interest of the state,
equally the state owes a duty to those of
Its citizens who are prepared and readily
prepared to make sacrifices In Its de
fense and for the maintenance of Its
honor. Citizens called upon to voluntarily
leave their employment and their homes
for the purpose of undertaking military
duties have a right to receive at the
hands of the state a reasonable and as
sured recompense, not so much for them
selves as for those who are dependent
upon them, and no single member of the
community .would do otherwise than up
hold a government which In such an Im
portant and vital matter took a liberal
and even generous view of Its responsi
bilities towards those citlzena who come
forward to assist in the defense of their
country. We respectfully commend this
suggestion to the favorable consideration
of the government of the day.
"Long life to the free Institutions of
all democratically governed countries."
The committee considered the advisa
bility of holding the Trades Union con
gress this year, but announced that in
the present condition of affairs It was
impossible to fix a date.
England Does Not
Think it is Any
Where Near Famine
LONDON. Sept. 19. London papers are
unanimous In the opinion that England
will not soon suffer famine. Imports of
grain have been largely in excess of nor
mal because so many continental ports
have been closed. Up to the present time
forty-eight cargoes of grain destined for
continental ports have been landed In
The paths to Canada and the United
States are now open and a regular
steamer service between Archangel on the
White Sea and London haa been estab
lished, which will make It possible for
Russia to continue Its shipments of but
ter and eggs to England. ,
At present the stocks of meat !n Lon
don warehouses are said to be 60 per
cent above the average, while the wheat,
maize and barley stocks are 160 per cent,
200 per cent and 600 per cent, respectively,
above the average. Mora than ,000,000
gallons of petroleum not Intended for
England found their way here because
of the closing of continental ports. Ships
bearing print paper have resumed sail
ings from Norway and Sweden so It
seems likely newspapers will not be short
of white paper.
Helgoland Episode
More Romantic and
Dramatic Than Novel
LONDON. Sept. 1. "The most roman
tic, dramatic and piquant episode that
modern war can show," says a naval lieu
tenant In describing an episode In the
Heligoland fight. His letter reads:
"The Defender, having, sunk an enemy,
lowered a whaler to pick up its swimming
survivors; before the whaler got back
an enemy's cruiser came up and chased
the Defender, and thus It abandoned its
whaler. Imagine their feelings; alone In
an open boat without food, twenty-five
miles from the nearest land, and that land
the enemy's fortress, with nothing but fog
and fees aroun them. Suddenly a swirl
alongside, and up, If you please, pops his
Brlttanlc majesty's submarine E-4, opens
his conning tower, takes them all on
board, shuts up again, dives and brings
them home, 250 miles! Is not that mag
nificent T No novel would dare face the
critics with an episode like that in it, ex
cept, perhaps, Jules Verne; and all true!
Magnificent, Indeed, and It la war."
PARIS, Sept. 19. An instance of the
censor's pitiless treatment of letters from
the soldiers at the front to their wives
and sweethearts in Paris Is the case of a
wife who received the following note
from the censor as a substitute for the
long letter her husband had written:
. "Madam," he said, "your husband Is
well, but is far too loquacious."
LONDON, Sept. 16. London policemen
and detectives are becoming more partic
ular every day in their Investigations of
the movements of aliens. German and
Austrian women are now watched quite

"Play Doctor" Pays Omaha a Visit
Of the 103 people busily engaged around
tho Gayety theater the last week, either
aa a member of the current attraction or
on the regular payroll of the theater In one
capacity or another, the busiest man
is one who was not mentioned on the
program; did not appear In the perform

company and who In all likelihood may
never see the performance again. But
while he was here associated with the
company, his word was the law, taking
precedence over what the manager of the
company might havt said or the desires

Such a pooltlon Is not only unique, but
to the uninitiated It probably seems Im

Amusement company to "Jump" from
point to point where an ailing show may
be playing and doctor It up until the pub

Mr. Grady Is a man of great resource
and In close touch with what audiences
appreciate In a musical burlesque en
tertainment. He Is In years hovering
around the fiftieth milestone; In spirit
and activity he is younger than many
of half his age. It is his duty to keep
up to the mark the sixty-eight musical
attractions controlled by the Columbia
Amusement company one company play
ing in the west may need his services for
but a single song number, while another
organization in Montreal or Providence
may need a general building-up process
and more laughs injected into the per
formance. It is a fact that the performance of
"The Million Dollar Dolls" as given in
Kansas City the week before coming to
Omaha was conspicuously draggy and
talky, notwithstanding that Its producers
had been lavish In their expenditures for
wardrobe, scenery and a rant of com
petent artists to Interpret the lines and
situations as prescribed by the author.
But the entire performance lacked the
punch necessary to make It "go ovtr"
so sure that it would be an asst t rather
than a liability to Its owners throughout
the season Just starting. Fo "Doctor"
