King Ak's Minions
Shower Tin Upon
Mr. and Mrs. Dietz
Tin dish pans, tin spangles, tin
oyster cans and many other articles
of tin were showered upon Mr. and
Mrs. Gould Dietz at the Union sta
tion when they wer,e leaving for the
west coast, preparatory to sailing
January 24 for a visit to Honolulu.
The tin cans came from the board
of governors of Ak-Sar-Ben, who
swooped down upon the depot in a
mass formation to see their brother
governor off. It happens that this is
the tenth anniversary of the marriage
of Mr. and Mrs. Dietz.
"Dad" Weaver, the Samson of Ak-Sar-Ben,
called all the governors to
gether to give the Dietzes a send-off.
Frank W. Judson got busy gathering
up the necessasry tin to make the
proper kind of a noise in the presenta
tion. Also Judson managed the ac
quiring of suitable flowers for Mrs.
Dietz. At the last minute a hurrying
search of the city was made to find
the Little German Band, but it was
discovered they had gone to the
trenches or somewhere else for the
Through City in a
Big Yellow Auto
A big, yellow automobile, manned
by a corps of three "stick-up" men,
is believed by the police to be re
sponsible for the large range of re

In many ot the cases reported the de
scription of the men seems to tally.
This and the fact that a large yellow
automobile was said by some of the
victims to be waiting on the corner
for the footpads convince the police
that one gang is doing this crooked
J. Laurie Wallace, artist, 41132
Uarrl street, who was robbed by
armed and masked men of $11 and
jewelry at Fortieth and Izard, says
that he saw a big yellow car which
lie was almost certain belonged to
the men that held him up.

SCHOOL TAX LEVY
From Thirteen Mills in 1906 to
Thirty-Five Mills Proposed
by Board for Next Year.
INCREASE COST PER PUPIL
From U mills levy in 190o to .'5
mills for l')8, cpitomires the tax in
crease for maintenance of the oublic
school system in this school district.
The increase was gradual until 1915,
when it wai 20 mills. Then the South
Omaha merger produced an increase
to -S nulls for 1916, and a similar levy
made tor 1917. The hoard proposes
now to certify next July to a .15-mill
levy for 191H. This year already laces
a (icticil, due chiefly to tl.c slump in
liquor license revenue.
Less License Money.
Looking back over the records, in
191o, general fund resources were
$o5.!.9lo: for '1917 the estimate is
$l.o.W,H9. which included MM.OOO
liipior license money anticipated, of
which only one-lhinl is to be col
lected. In the accompanying com
parative tables the figures for 1915
in the uppei table refer to Omaha be
fore the merger, while for the same
year in the lower column the figures
include the consolidated territory.
The school reports show that from
190h to 1914. the last complete year
of Omaha before the merger, the total
enrollment had increased 17.8 per
cent; average daily attendance, lH'.j
per cent; teaching stall, 4(1 per cent;
teachers' pav roll, 78 per cent.
In 1906 tlic enrollment was 1R.915;
general fund, $65.1,916; an average of
$.14.50 for each pupil enrolled.
In 1916 (tirealer Omaha system)
the rnrollnient was 28,542; general
fund, $1,478,900; average of $52 per
Teachers and Pupils. (
The figures also show that in 1906
4.15 teachers cared for 18,915 enrolled
pupils, while in 1916 there were 925
teachers and 28,542 enrolled pupils.
The budget for 1917 shows tea:h-
ers' salaries estimated at $89C,385. The
secretary's report of January 1, 1917,
shows a deficit of i-u.468. The new
Board of Education is sailing into the
teeth of a financial problem which
looms up in large proportions.
In 1906 the total teachers' salary
for the year, applied to the average
daily attendance of pupils, was 22.32
per pupil, while during 1916 the teach
ing cost per average pupil attending

Brings Death to
. Another Victim
Raymond Fouts, II years of age,
died of cerebro-spinal meningitis at
272S SpraRue street. This was the
second death of this nature this year.
Only two cases have been reported
to the health office- since January 1
and both were fatal. The Fouta boy
came to Omaha from Ounlap, la., a
few weeks before he was stricken.
Easterners Amazed at the
Volume of Business Here
"For its size and population Omaha
has better buildings than any of the
cities I have visited on the present
tour," said Adrian t. Joyce of Cleve
land, general manager ot tn aner-win-Williams
r'aint company, when
in Omaha for two hours on a tour of
inspection of all the company's plants
throughout the coast country and the
With Mr. Joyce was Walter H.
Cottingham, president of the com
pany. Thcf called on Sales Manager
Frank Welch of their local plant,
visited the plant for two hours, ana
then took a night train for Kansas
Both were very optimistic in regard
to business prospects for the coming
year. Both declared the outlook was
never better, and they found pros
pects here excellent, as well as those
on the west coast.
John McCormack's Artistic
Associates in Concert
Those who go to the Auditorium
Tuesday evening, January 23, for the
McCormack concert will not only
have the pleasure of hearing the
world's most celebrated Irish tenor,
but two excellent artists as well.
F.dwin Schneider, accompanist, and
Donald McBeath, violinist, will be Mr.
McCormack's assistants. This will
mark Ihe fourth season fnr both these
excellent artists and the comment of
William Hutchesou in the Houston
Host that "both are certainly worthy
of the company they are keeping" is
one with which fhousands of the great
tenor's admirers throughout the coun
try will heartily agree.
The scat sale at the Auditorium
for the McCormack concert has ex
ceeded all precedents and bids fair
for a complete sell-out before the
week is done.
