LINCOLN. March 11. (Special.) Oil In
spector Harman has sent a communica
tion to the democratic members of con
gress asking that tneyuse their Influence
with congress to have an embargo placed
on exportation of oil and gasoline) to
He gives as his reasons for such action
that on account of the large amount of
gasoline and other oils going to other
countries and the Increased used made
of it In this country that the price of
gasoline has gone from 10 cents a year
ago to 20 cents at the prestnt time. In
1911 the exportations of gasoline were
15,000.000 gallons, but the 1915 exportations
Increased to about 28.COO.O0O gallons.

of gasoline or it will find itself up against
a practically prohibitive price. He calls
attention to several states In the south
where, owners have had to store their
cars because the price of gasoline has
gone up to 40 cents a gallon.
Commissioner Harman says that ship
builders are now getting ready to build
twenty-nine new chips of an especial type
for the carrying of gasoline and he be
lieves that some active measures should
be taken for the protection of the oil

Widows to Organize
'Why shouldn't the widows orrnle?
Every other class of people, religious sect
or political affiliation Is organlied for
protection and the benefits to be gotten
by co-operation. Why shouldn't the wid
ows, who need protection and assistance
the most, follow their example?"
With this Idea In Mind Mrs. Bessie C.
Turpln, a widow with three children.
whom she hss supported, by her employ
ment as bookkeeper In local business
houses for nine years, has Issued an ap
peal to all widows :n meet with her at
the Toung Men's Christian association
Tuesday afternoon at I o'clock to organ
ise "The Society of American Widows."
Mrs. Turpln has had the Idea In mind
for several years and has been quietly
presenting her views to local business
men since October. The first gun In the
csmpalgn for widows' rights was fired
when Mrs. Turpln addressed a communi
cation to the Associated Retailers this
week setting forth the aims of the So
ciety of American Widows and asking
that a discount be made on all purchases
by widows In stores which are members
o! the association. Mis. Turpln has given
up her position and expects to employ all
of her time now to furthering the suc

"At the end of the European war there
will be a great Influx of widows Into this
country. This will be a great problem
for Us to solve, and we believe In pre
paredness. Another necessity for our or
ganizing Is the Inability of the mothers'
pension to come to the aid of widows.
Some are Ineligible and others. If they
receive a pension which Is not sufficient
for them to live on, are not able to go
out and work to make some additional
money. By means of the employment bu
reau and sewing department which we
will establish we hope to be able to pro
vide work In their own homes for the
"This Is not a charitable organisation.
Charity only pauperlies, but our aim is
to do a great, lasting good before the
case Is turned over to the charities. 'Help
the widows to help themselves," Is our
Mrs. Turpln plans to present her Idea
to all the women's organizations of the
city and to enlist the co-operation of
local business men. She contemplates
opening a local office and organizing a
widows' stock company. The widow's
dues will be S3, honorary members $5 per
year. Interested persons will be sold
