Turkey Agrees to
Red Cross Relief
Work in Armenia
Washington, Sent 21. Turkey has
yielded to diplomatic negotiations for
an extension of American Red Cross
work in Ottoman territory beyond
the present limited operations in
famine-stricken sections of Syria. The
State department today notified Red
Cross headquarters that the Turkish
government had agreed to remove its
restrictions and preparations were
taken ud at once for beginning a
great relief campaign in co-operation
with the Ked crescent society ot
Turkey. President Wilson, by proc'
lamation. has set aside October 21
and October 22 for Armenian and
Svrian relief days, and it is expected
that the fundi in hand will be largely
increased by contributions received
then. Already in the sections where
the Ked Cross ia operating, such co
operation has proved successful.

OMAHA HAS A GOOD
C. E. Herring: Tells Concord
Club Members Benefits to
MUST INTEREST INVESTORS
Omaha stands a mighty good
chance of getting one of the federal
farm loan banks, Carl E. Herring
told the members of the Concord
club at the weekly meeting and
luncheon of the organization at the
Hotel Fontenelle at noon. Mr. Her
ring, as a special guest of the club,
gave an interesting talk on the farm
loan br.nk question, predicting to the
Concordians that the benefits of the
system to this part of the country
will be enormous.
He. however, aualihed some of his
statements by saying that many of
the democratic party's outbursts as
to the farm loan bank proposition,
while "beautiful," contained much
The vast needs of the farmers in
the matter of loans and the part they
will play in the working out of the
farm loan bank system were ex
plained by Mr. Herring.
Appeal to Investor.
An important phase of the farm
loan banks, and one, he averred, must
not be overlooked, is the standpoint
of the investor. First of all, Mr.
Herring pointed out, the farm loan
banks must aopeal to the investor.
He declared that they must be satis
fied that the farm loan banks con
stitute the best channel for invest
ments before they will let loose of
Ihe important investors of the
country, he said, are in two classes,
both of which are in the east the
insurance companies and the savings
of the New England states.

cord club was one of the most large

MAYOR ASKS HOWELL
TO AIDIH PAVmG!
Metropolitan Water District
Will Not Sign Petitions for
QUESTION OF THE PAY
Mayor Dahlman broke into the
routine of the city council proceed
ings to express his mind regarding
the arbitrary policy of the general
manager of the Metropolitan Water
district, yclept R. B. Howell.
"Two women called at my office to
ask why the Water board should not
sign a paving petition for Nicholas
street. Thirty-eighth to Forty-first
streets," said the mayor. "The Water
board controls the frontage' at the
Walnut Hill reservoir and I don't
understand why they can nold up
public improvements in this man
ner.." Will Not Sign.
Assistant City Attorney TePoel ex
plained that the water works man
agement has steadfastly refused to
sign petitions for public improve
ments on the theory that the prop
erty of the water district is not sub
ject to special taxes. Special taxes
have been levied against water works
property in several instances, but the
assessments have not been paid.
City Attorney Rine suggests that
a suit should be started to establish
tl.e merits or demerits of the conten
tion of General Manager Howell.
In the case of the proposed Nicho
las street paving it will be impossible
to secure a majority of front footage
on the petition if the water man
ager does not "kick in" with his signature.
