"Regarding the advisability oi in
dorsing a certain photo play, which
deals with the propaganda of the al
leged advantages to society at large
of permitting unfit children to die at
birth, I would say that so far as my
personal opinion and observation go,
I believe it would be an advantage to
society and surely save children much
suffering if many of these helpless
children were permitted to die at
birth," was a statement made by Karl
L. Schreiber, superintendent of the
Public Welfare board, in an official
communication to the National Board
of Censors of Motion Pictures.
Continuing, he wrote: "However,
this is a new and delicate question
and under no circumstance should the
life of a child be allowed to pass away
without a committee of thoroughly
competent physicians acting upon the
case. From the many terribly de
formed cripples seen on the streets
and in public places, with but a re
semblance of the human and none of
the intellect, cared for by devoted
parents, or in institutions all of this
thoroughly convinces me in my
opinion. The elimination of the un
fit must come about by an educational
propaganda, but whether the photo
play will present these truths in a
lair and convincing manner, I am not
prepared to say."
Omaha social workers are heine
asked for their opinions ofithe advis
ability of killing "unfits" at birth; also
of the presentation of this subject in
motion pictures for general distribu
tion. Omaha is being asked for its opinion
of the wisdom of exploiting this theme
in motion pictures.
Auto Dealers Have
Decided to Move
To a New Location
Omaha auto dealers at a meeting
held at noon decided upon a new
location for auto row. Ihey will try
to move it to Howard street between
Eighteenth and Twentieth streets.
This move was brought about because
of increasing rents along Farnam
The committee which has been
working up a new location reported
favorably on the new site and the
dealers are going out at once to try
to secure contracts for the land,
much of which is owned by the
Kountze interests, the dealers ex
pect to build their own buildings and
thus stop paying rent.
Some had already arranged to move
off Farnam street.

Town of Five Hundred
Springs Up in Ten Days
The station of Parkerton, on the
Northwestern's line into Wyoming,
has been opened, with an agent, ex
press and baggageman and an opera
tor. Thirty days ago Parkerton was
only a siding, but now it is a town
of nearly SOU, the greater portion of
this growth having occurred during
the last ten days.
Parkerton is five and one-half miles
west of Glenrock, and its sudden
coming into existence is due to the
fact that oil has been struck, not only
in the vicinity, but right on the town
site. It is in the center of an oil
field six miles long and three miles
wide. In the last ten days seven pro
ducing well have been brought in, all
within four miles of the town. At
this time sixty wells are being sunk
in the field.
Utah Farmer's Memory
Causes Trouble for Dyer
Like the old story of the pitcher
that pitched too often is tnat of
Charles Dyer, Belmont hotel, say the
police. Dyer is being held in the
city jail on complaint of George Ben
nett, farmer from near Salt Lake
City, Utah, who says two years ago
he lost $800 when Dyer induced him
to bet on a "fixed" horse race.
Bennett was standing at Sixteenth
and Dodge yesterday afternoon, when
Dyer approached him and renewed
the old acquaintanceship and tried to
talk foot ball, instead of listening,
the farmer called the police and
caused Dyer's arrest.

Passenger train No. 103, leaving
Kansas City at 8:45 o'clock Thursday
morning and due here at 4:45 Thurs
day afternoon, and freight train
No. 164, southbound, came together
head-on at Wolcott, a passing siding
fifteen miles this side of Kansas City,
at about 9:30 o'clock Thursday morn
ing. No one was seriously injured,
but a good many of the passengers
were considerably shaken up. The
passenger train reached Omaha three
Sam Geinsburg, traveling salesman
for a Chicago shoe house, tells the
following story of the meeting of the
'The passenger was moving along
at about twenty-five miles per hour
and as we approached Wolcott there
was a shock, a sudden stop and the
passengers in the car in which I
was sitting found themselves sprawl
ing about the floor. Some sustained
slight bruises, but none was seriously
injured. Investigating, we discovered
that at Wolcott there were three
freight trains standing, all going
south. Two were on the siding and
one out on the main line. The con
ductor of the freight on the main line
had sent a flagman ahead, but the
smoke from the engines was so dense
that he was completely obscured. Not
seeing the flagman, the engineer of
our train ran head-on into the engine
of the train on the main line. Both
engines were pretty badly wrecked,
that constituting the most of the dam
age. None of the passengers was se
riously injured and none of them was
from Omaha, so far as I could learn.
In jumping, Engineer Ridgeway sus
tained a broken leg and Fireman
Clark a number of bruises. Both were
of the passenger train."

Waddell Suggests More
Stations for Nebraska
Lieutenant Waddell of the naval re
cruiting station has recommended to
the Navy department that four sub
stations be opened in western Ne
braska and South Dakota. At present
there are only two stations in Nebras
ka, one at Lincoln and the other here,
while in South Dakota there is only
one, at Sioux Falls. In his recommen
dation the lieutenant said that a very
large number in the western part of
the state would enlist if there were
stations in their locality. Twenty-two
enlistments were reported from Ne

month of November.
