MUSTERING IN IS Hf PROGRESS
(From a Staff Correspondent)
Mobilization' Camp, Lincoln, June
24. (Special Telegram) Mustering
of companies into the government
service began late this afternoon con
ducted by Lieutenant Wrightson and
Captain Tupes of the regular army.
The signal corps and sanitary com
panies were the first to come under
the examinations. The work will pro
ceed from now on as fast as possible.
Religious exercises will be held to
morrow in the open air auditorium
at the camp, the sermon to be preach
ed by Chaplain J. M. Leidy of the
Fourth regiment, whose home is in
Clarence W. Myers, of Omaha, but
who is a member of Company M.
Fourth regiment, York, is in the hos.
fiital because of an accident before
eaving York, when he fell from a
horse. He is getting along nicely.
Lieutenant Botholemew of the hos
pital department gave a. lecture this
afternoon on contagious diseases, giv
ing the men some strong talk.
Cantata Hamilton. Co. B. Fourth
regiment, Omaha was officer of the
May Cut Out Parade.
It is possible there will be no dress
parades, at least for several days if
at all. General Hall and those assoc
iated with him in getting the men in
shape are "putting the men through a
severe drill in squads and in company
formation and it is probable that ex
tended formation work will not De in
dulged in for some time. The men
were given the first hard work-outs
today and some of them were pretty
tired from the severe effort in the hot
sun. It is the intention, so it is under
stood, to give them hard work so they
will get over the soreness incident
to the severe training before starting
for the border. -Captain
Ralph McMillen of the
Aero company arrived wii his aero
plane this afternoon. It will take a
little time to repair his machine after
which he will probably enter into tne
war program with much zest.
May Delay Mavement'
Whether be wilt be ordered to the
border immediately remains with the
government to say. There appears to
be little prospect of any companies of
the Guard getting out of camp before
the middle of the coming week, if at
all for some time to come. The order
to recruit uo to war strength will nat
urally delay matters, and on top of
that the necessity of getting the re
cruits in shape before taking them to
the hot climate on the border -simply
means much delay,, and one or two
officers tgday expressed the belief that
thev would not be surprised if there
was no movement south for two or
Not Taking Chances.
The situation is one of taking
chances on taking the men out of the
(hops, stores and offices and putting
them out on the top without first giv
ing them a chance to get used to the
hot sun. Those from the farms and
those -who have been working outside
are in better shape to stana tne rig;
orniia drills without becoming candr
- dates for the hospital, but to take the
others direct from their, work to the
hot climate along the border with the
otherchanges incident to a change of
climate is something the officers do
not like to think about. Care of the
men -and tjie prevention of sickness
and disease is one of the things the

The Franciscan monastery was
dedicated Thursday by Rev. Father

celebrated by Father Herbert, who

priests present A heavy rain just

the tent was packed for the musical

TAKEN FROM BOOK BUSINESS
(From a 8taff Correspondent.)
Lincoln. lune 24. (Special.) The
old normal school board ring and the
Schoolmasters' club appear to be
again doing business at the old stand,
according to results snown at tne
meeting of the State Normal board
It will be remembered that at the
time State Superintendent Thomas
was let out as superintendent of the
Kearney State Normal school be
cause he would not knuckli down to
the school board ring,. that R. C.
King, then an inspector in the office
of State Superintendent Delzell was
taken, from the superintendent's of
fice and sent out to Kearney to take
charge of things. Both were mem
bers of the Schoolmasters' club and
both said to be among he bunch who
had it in for Mr. Ihomas.
Later King left the school and went
on the road for a school supply house.
Now the old ring on the normal
school board has placed him on the
state oavroll aurain at a salary ' of
$1,800 a year as registrar of the Chad
ron Normal school.
That the old ring expects to manip
ulate affairs as usual is indicated by
the fart that the brutal maioritv has
again elected the old organization of
the board. The term of A. H. Viele
of Norfolk expires this week, but no
appointment has been given out ana
it is not known whether the old gang
is going to be able to continue itself
in power because of the new appoint
ment or whether the two members
of the board, Thomas and Hall, who
have opposed the methods ot tne
majority, are going to be reinforced
bv the addition of a man who will
work with them.
The board let contracts for the
erection of new buildings at tne
three normal schools as . follows
Wayne, $64,892; Chadron, $49,805
(Correspondence of The Associated Press.)
Rerne Switzerland. Tune 15. Peo
pie living along the Swiss border of
the lake of Constance have been
greatly surprised over the movements
of the new monster-airship, much
larger than all other( Zeppelins, that
has been making trial trips over the
lake. The length of this ship is said
to be 240 yards, or almost double that
of other Zeppelins. The cubic con
tents is even more than double, 54,000
cubic meters instead of 20,000, and the
number of the gondolas is four in
stead of two. These gondolas are
said to be armed with guns, machine
guns, and a new kind of air torpedo.
Despite its nuge duik, tne snip
gives the impression "of fish-like
alenderness. The steering gear forms
an exact cross. The motors are 3,000,
4,000-horse power, v able to give the
airship a speed of ninety kilometers
an hour, to avoid breakdowns, the
motors are in double number. The
crew is said to be thirty to forty men.
The snip can reach a height of three
to four miles.
MARRIAGES PERFORMED WITH
BRIDE AND GROOM FAR AWAY
(Correspondence of The Associated Preai.) '
Paris, June 15.- Four French pris
oners of war in Germany, now in the
camp at Stendal, were married to
their respective fiancees in France.
The arrangements were completed
through the Spanish embassy in Ber
lin. Exactly at the time at which
the wedding ceremony, with the
brides absent, was being performed
in the prisoners' camp at Stendal by
the chaplain of the Spanish embassy,
another ceremony, with the bride
grooms absent, was i performed in
POTATO PEELINGS SOUP
FOR THE FACTORY HANDS
(Corraspoadenca ot The Auoclated Press.)
Maastricht, Netherlands, June 15.
So great is the scarcity of rubber in
Germany that $20 can be earned by
the smuggling of a kilogram of it
across the frontier.
A sign of the pitiable state of things
in some sections of Belgium is found
in the fact that manufacturers in the
Charleroi region are having potato
peelings bought up everywhere. Out
of these a sort of soup is made for
the factory hands and their families.
Avoca, Neb., June 24. Earl W.
Keedy and Miss Hattie J. Taylor,
well-known Union couple, were mar
ried at Omaha this week. They will
reside at Union, where the groom is
engaged in business.
