THE BEE: OMAHA, SATURDAY. JULY 15, 1916.
Max Teich, Native of Germany,
Does Not Favor the Pros-
SHOULD TAKE YOUNG BOYS
"I am not in favor of the present
German system, or any system of
compulsory training;, which takes a
man from the age of 18 to 25 years
and gives him military training," as
serted Max L. Teich, one of the pro
prietors of the New Kaiserhof hotel,
Chicago, before he returned to his
home after attending the hotel men's
meeting here the first three days of
the week. Mr. Teich is a native of
Germany, speaks with some accent,
but is a substantial, loyal citizen of
the United States.
"In the first place, many young
men want to earn money at that age,
and one, two or three years devoted
to military training is a serious loss.
Men at that time of life are harder to
control than at an earlier age. Their
ideas are more rigid and discipline
is more difficult; they look upon the
loss of time and this training as an
, Should Take Boys
"Now, is it not a fact that the
hardest time in which to handle a boy
safely and satisfactorily is beween the
ages of 12 and 16. Many of them
leave school at this time and get to
loafing and bumming around and go
wrong for all the rest of their lives.
This is the age when the govern
ment should step in and say, 'We will
take your boy for the nex four years,
feed and clothe him according to the
best scientific methods, give him the
best possible physical culture, and in
a thoroughly equipped manual and vo
cational training1 school divide his
hours properly between rest, recrea
tion, instructive work, military train
ing and education.' Such a system
would mean real preparedness for
trouble and -the practical education
and conservation of our American
Solution of Hard Problem
Mr. Teich also has thought of a way
of interesting the government in the
vocational school for hotel employes,
proposed by Henry Bohn of Chicago
at the hotel men's convention. "When
the Illinois militia was mobilizing,"
he says, "officers of the guard regi
ments came to me ana to my cooks
nri with tears in their eves asked me
to let them enlist, and told them that
the country needed cooks tor most
of the regiments. Now, if this coun
try is so badly in need of cooks as all
that, and you know they say that an
army moves on its stomach, I propose
that the United States shall give as
sistance to the proposed vocational
school at Muncie, and then when war
breaks out the hotel chefs who have
hrm trained there will be required
to go with the army and feed the
men. That would mean superior skill
in using the rations issued by the
government, for these men would
have had experience- in serving large
bodies of persons, and there would
be no trouble in finding enough men
who would be glad to learn the well
paid trade of chef at the expense of
the government on the chance that
they might some time be called for
service in tne war.
At the Auditorium
Three choice reels of moving pic
tures have been developed from the
several thousand feet of film taken of
the Joe Stecher-Strangler Lewis
wrestling match, and these three reels
will be flashed upon the screen at the
Auditorium Saturday evening ana
Sunday afternoon and evening, so
that those fans who failed to see the
bout can pass their own judgment on
it instead of merely listening to tne
stories of their neighbors.
The reels are very clear and show
everything plainly. The first reel is
devoted to Lewis in training at the
Dietz club, where he is seen in his
workouts with Tom Drake. I he next
reel shows Stecher in training. In
this reel Joe is seen chucking big Bill
Hokuff around like a ten-pound babe.
The third reel ihows the match, in
cluding that part where Stecher made
his desoerate try for the scissors and
where the irate fans burled cushions
into the ring.

Home-Grown Apples, Fine for Pies
and Sauce, Appear on the Market
Apples, home-grown apples, are the
latest addition to the big fruit menu
on the Omaha markets. They are of
the "early harvest" variety and fine
for making pies, apple sauce and such.
There are also some varieties of Cali
fornia early apples here. i
Some fine, big olums and peaches
are on hand, too, from the orchards
of Texas. Peaches are scarce this
year and will continue to be so, for
no locality has more than half a crop,
and many places have none at all.
Pears may also be had, though they
are rather scarce.
The end of the season for straw-,
berries, red raspberries, currants and
gooseberries is in sight. Straw ber-
County Dads Are
In Favor of Free
Bridge to Bluffs
Douglas county commissioners as a
rule are strongly in favor of a free
bridge between Council Bluffs and
Omaha, but have as yet worked out
no definite plan for getting one.
Commissioner Frank Best believes
that the county or city should either
take over the street railway bridge
or build a new one.
The possibility of obtaining state
aid under the law providing for the
building of bridges by assistance of
the state is being looked into by Mr.
Best, who believes it may be possible
to do something in this manner.
Little support is given by commis
sioners to the idea of buying the
superstructure of the old Union Pa
"I would not be in favor of doing
this unless we could get the whole
bridge," says Commissioner Lynch.
Commissioner A. C. Harte is
stronly in favor of a free bridge.
"1 believe that by co-operating witn
Pottawattamie countv we could build
the bridge in a couple of years with
out a bond issue, by cutting expenses
and paying what we can from the
bridge fund," says Mr. Harte.
Commissioner Mcuonaia oeueves

pelled to bear the entire cost of the

more of a city matter than a county
affair," he says. "The city should be
compelled to bear its share."
To Test Liability
Of Counties for the
Expense of Insane
Attornev L. H. McKillip of Seward
has notified Robert Smith, chairman
of the insanity commission of Doug
las county, that mandamus action is
to . be brought to compel Douglas
county to pay for the maintenance
of an insane patient, A. G. Vroman,
committed two years ago from Sew
Vroman, a Douglas county resident,
is alleged to have become insane while
an inmate of the soldiers home at Mil
ford. The law provides that the eoun

At least twelve claims of similar
character are now before the board.
If the county commissioners refuse
to pay the claim the matter is to be
appealed to district court, thus se
curing an adjudication as to the lia
bility of countfes for the expenses of
insane prisoners sent up from coun
ties other than the one in which they

New Wheat Arriving
On Omaha Market in
New wheat is coming onto the
Omaha market in pretty . fair quanti
ties, and of the forty-five cars re
ceived, five were of this year's crop.
The new wheat was all graded No. 2
hard and sold at $1.06 per bushel. This
was 2&.lYi cents -under the price paid
Thursday. Thursday' figures, at
which the sales were made, did not
establish a price, because of the spir
ited bidding and the anxiety among
bidders to be noted as the first to
secure the first car of new wheat.

Declares Yield is the

WHEAT HARVEST FINISHED
"During my thirty years' knowledge
of conditions in Nebraska I have
never, seen a, time when agriculturally
the state appeared as prosperous as
now," declared President Calvin of
the Union Pacific upon his return
from an inspection trip of the Union
Pacific lines in Nebraska, Kansas and
Colorado. President Calvin was on
the road nearly two weeks and did
most of his traveling during the day
in order that he might get a better
idea of the conditions in '.he country

In practically all the country trib
utary to the Nebraska and Kansas
lines President Calvin found the
wheat harvest finished and the har
vesting of oats well along. Every
where, he says, the wheat crop is
about the best that has ever been
raised in both yield and quality. The
weather has been ideal and the small
grain has gone into the shock without
any rains after it was cut.
In many localities Presiden Calvin
found threshing well under way, the
wheat turning out better than was
expected and the grade being high.
"Corn," said President Calvin, "has
made wonderful growth since the
present spell of hot weather set in.
Hardly anywhere is the corn suffer
ing on account of a lack of rain, and
will not for several days yet."

Washington, July 14. Democratic
Leader Kitchin reported to President
Wilson today that with the passage
of the corrupt practices bill the house
will have completed the entire legis

Mr. Kitchin said the house would
mark time by adjourning from day to
day until the senate catches up with
its Work. He estimated that congress
should be able to adjourn by August
The legislative program suggested
to congress which has been complet

pine and Porto Rican bills, prepared
nets legislation, the revenue, Missis
sippi flood control, shipping, rural
credits and conservation bills.
While Representative Kitchin was
at the White house, Senator Gallin

announcing on the floor that republic
cans of that body never contemplat
ed a filtibuster against government
shipping, revenue or any other legis
lation pending, and that they would
co-operate with the demands to com
plete the program and adjourn.
"The legislative program is not in
our hands," said Senator Gallinger,
"but whatever the majority concludes
to lay before us, they will find the
minority ready with good-natured co
operation. The minority is in favor
of the child labor, workmen's com-
Kensation and immigration bills and
ope they may be passed."
"Will you support the constitution
al amendment for woman's suffrage?"
asked Senator Thomas.
