Army Fosters Soheme for
DOMINIONS HELP MOVE
. 1erreapDnanee f The AaMelate Preee.
: London, Nov. 10. A scheme which
has been nnder consideration for
some time by the Salvation Army i
now complete for transferring Brit
ish widows with their families to the
overseas dominions and to increase
facilities for the migration of other
women desiring to go to dominions
when the war is over, and the abnor
mal demand for female labor is ex
hausted. . ,
In a recent issue of the War Cry
General Booth intimates that a fund
of $1,000,000 should be raised, and
$.160,000 has already been subscribed.
The public trustee has agreed to set
as treasurer of the fund, and the sum
asked for should secure the settle
ment of 5.000 widows and 10.000
children. The work, which requires
careful and gradual preparation on
tli is side, as well as in the dominions,
for the proper settlement of the fami
lies. . would be conducted . over a
period of five years.
Close co-operation between the
Salvation Army and the dominion
governments is already assured, sev
eral of the states having already come
forward with offers of active support,
and special representatives are being
dispatched to the colonies at once. -:
' Aid Worthy Widow.
' General Booth points out that un
der the scheme, worthy widows living
in oppressive" or unsatisfactory en
vironments can be transferred, free of
cost to " themselves, to progressive
overseas communities where there is
more elbow room for the energetic
and enterprising, and where she will
be fortified while making her way, in
the knowledge that she haa the weight
of the Salvation Army at her back.
He sums up the Army's undertak
ing on, behalf-of the women as fol
lows: "The Army will not advise anyone
to migrate or become responsible for
the migration of anyone who may
not conform with the standards of
suitability it haa set up through its
long experience with migration. . .
i Jobs Ready lor Tbem.
' Th Army will provide for the re
ception and secure positions in given
localities prior to sailing for all whom
it may select for overseas settlement
under this scheme.
"The Army undertakes the super
inteadenee by its own officers or re
sponsible persons of the families mi
gratfd -for four years, er until such
time; as the progress of the new settlers-

can tedispensed with.
"lip die event of failure' to aueeeed
in her new environment after four
years' trial, a contingency regarded as
remote and exceptional, the Army
will bring back the widow to this
country." ., ; : '

UP TO THE LEGISLATURE
(From a Staff Correcponamt.)
Lincoln, Nov. 23. (Special.)
Friends of the National Guard of this
state are wondering whether the com
ing aession of the legislature will be
as derelict in its duty toward the
guard as was the session of two years
sgo where the house committee on
finance sought to cripple the guard
by cutting its appropriation fifty per
cent from the apportionment of the
previous session.. Had it not been for
the business judgment of the senate
which held out for a long while, the
guard would have' been badly crip
pled, but by hrit work and much
compromising Mhe upper body was
able to hold the house to the former
appropriation, and the bill went
What would 'have happened when
the president made his call for troops
last summer had the appropriation
been cut in two as the house recom
mended, is hard to tell, for with the
amount that was appropriated the
Nebraska troops were sadly handi
capped and forced to live after reach
ins the border under adverse circum
stances because Nebraska solons were
too economical to vote funds to prop
erly equip the guard under a call such
as canre six months ago and were
compelled to sleep in tents on the
hard ground while other state troops
were able to hoy lumber to lay floor
and cot for the boys to sleep upon.
Must Be Generous.
With the new national defense act
of June 3, 1916, the legislature of Ne
braska will be compelled to be more
generous with its military organiza
tion or the organization will have to
go out of business. When the boys
come marching home again, they will
not be mustered out of the service
as the case of the Spanish-American
war, but will still be in the federal
and state service, under the command
of the governor, while within the
borders of the state and if the re
quirements of the War department-are
met, the money appropriated under
the reserve act will be given to the
state, but if not the state, wilj get
Pay of the Men.
Under the new act officers and en
listed men will be paid by the govern
ment on the peace service plan. A
captain will be paid $500 a year, and
the same amount to other officers
over the rank. First lieutenants will
receive $240 a year and second lieu
tenants $200. Each enlisted man will
receive 25 per cent of the amount
now paid to soldiers of the regular
army, but he must attend not less
than forty-eight regular drills during
This is oneo f the. things the mem
bers of the guard have been contend
ing for many years. Under the old
system neither officers . or enlisted
men received any pay whatever, ex
cept for the time they were i camp
at the anual state guard camp. In
many instances the allowance made
by the state for armory rental did
not neorly pay for a building used
for an armory, ..and for the storage
of equipment, and . the men were
compelled to go down into their own
pockets to make up the deficiency.
Under such a system there was lit
tle incentive for the verage man to
enter the guard or remain in it after
learning of the handicap men were
up against who would have liked toi
have given some of their time to
military training and service of the
May Help Out.
With the war department of the
government relieving this situation,
thus enabling those who care to en
ter military service to do so without
the former loss financially, the state
can now take hold of the matter and
put the guard of Nebraska on a
footing and efficiency it has never
known before by making an appro
priation which, will to some extet
make up for the lack of apprecia
tion shown in the years that have

ART AND INDUSTRY

GET DOWN TO BUSINESS
Persistent Advertising Is the
Road to Success.
It is time to begin a serious study
of art in this country, according to
Dr. James P. Haney, director of art
in the New York High schools, who
spoke at the Commercial club at
noon. He declares people in Amer
ica have been merely playing with
"The idea that we are able in this
country to develop our educational
system by ourselves." he said, "and
without reference to educational sys
tems elsewhere is an error. How
grave this error is in industrial educa
tion one can scarcely realize until one
comes to study in detail the industrial
preparedness of our foreign competi
tors. Art education in foreign schools
is a matter of serious concern. It is
regarded economically as one of the
most important things that the state
can be interested in, (or on every hand
it touches industry."
"Poverty in foreign industrial art
schools is hot allowed to veil genius.
The boy of talent who cannot pay
the school fees sees them cut in half.
If he still cannot pay them, they are
waived and he i accepted free. If
even then 'he cannot remain and his
work is full oi promise, the school
pays him to attend. We call such pay
ments scholarships.-Abroad they are
called "stipendia." By either name
they mean only one thing that the
school, or rather the state, which is
behind the school, regards it as to its
interest to see that the student with
special gift of art and ability to de
sign beautiful fabrics or textiles, cer
amics or jewelry is not allowed to
leave without his talent being per
fected. You see the question is an
economic one in which the welfare of
the state is seen to be best served
by the training of each worker to the
point of greatest efficiency.
