Omaha Basket Five Has
Some Lively Games Ahead
The Central High basket ball five
which has undertaken the hardest
schedule m the history of the school
this year, will get no rest this week
after its strenuous three-day trip into
Iowa. Central will meet South High
on the latter's floor Friday night in
a return engagement. Central won
from South High in a close game on
the "Y" floor, by a score of 20 to 18,
but it is thought by Central High
followers that their team will put up
a much better exhibition this time
Saturday night Central High will
play Beatrice on he "Y" floor.
Beatrice lost practically the whole
team which won the state champion
ship last year.
The following week Omaha will
make a two-day trip, playing St.
Joseph and Atchison High schools.
The result of these two games will
decided what claim Omaha has on
the Missouri Valley championship.

French Towns Oppose
Immoral Movie Films
(Correspondence of The Associated Press.)
Paris, Jan. 27. One by one French
towns are taking measures against
demoralizing moving picture films.
The municipal council of the town of
Beaune, the rich region of Burgundy
wines, has decided to prohibit the
exposition of police films. Auxerre is
about to follow its example since a
band of young marauders of 14 to 16
years old drew inspiration from a de
tective film to rob several merchants
of the town.

MERE BOYS ABE BIRDMEN
(Correspondence of The Associated Press.)1
With the British Armies in France,
Jan. 8. The announcement that "Im
proved weather conditions permitted
increased aerial activity along the
entire front" is the laconic and prosaic
way in which the official communique
dismisses some of the most spectacu
lar episodes of the war.
To those who have once witnessed
this "increased aerial activity" such
an announcement conjures up at once
a picture of countless aeroplanes in
the air scouting, hghting, diving,
spinning, hovering over enemy tar-
rets and calmlv sending .wireless
signals through the fountains of en
emy fire, photographing the enemy
lines, bombing his ammunition dumps
and sheds and supply columns, and
otherwise "carrying on" in the sky in
a manner wholly bewildering to the
onlooker, but typifying in supreme
degree the indispensable part aviation
is playing in this war. 1
With a candor often uncommon in
times of strife, the Britishs communi
que may end from day to day with
the simple statement that one or two
or three or tour ot our machines
have not returned." This means they
have either been hit and forced to
land in the enemy lines, or have been
shot down to a fate more certain. It
is no child's play to circle above a
German battery observing for half an
hour or more, tortured by exploding
shells and . black shrapnel puffballs
coming nearer and nearer like the ex
tending finger tips of some hand of

children these mere bovs who are
brink .ig the luster of everlasting fame
to the British aviation service, some
are scarce eighteen. It is rare to find
a flying man over twenty-five.
Important Work, t
In the aggregate, however, the
losses in the flying corps are as noth
ing compared with the useful and vital
work the "wings" accomplish. With
out them the big guns would have no
far-seeing eyes to correct their shells.
Without them and the hundreds of
photographs they daily take the map
makers could not trace each detail of
the trench positions. Without them
the general staff could not accurately
know just what is going on Dy day
and night behind the enemy lines.
Without them modern war would lose
its most fascinating phase.
The "good flying of a single day on
the British front alone may represent
a day of a hundred fights, a day of
four score aeroplanes in wing-towing
Combat a day of a thousand personal
incidents and deeds of daring in the
once strange strata of high thin air.
It might tell, for instance, of how
Lieutenant A in a fast-flying scout
machine, encountered a squadron of
twelve German Rolands. The odds
were one-sided enough, but the young
Britisher decided to take a chance.
He climbed swiftly and surely until
he got far above and to the rear of the
hostile craft Evidently the Germans
were intent upon some errand which
they proposed to carry out in force,
for they paid no heed to the khaki
cald airman until he deliberately dived
into them, firing as he came. This
threw the twelve Germans into a
panic and their formation was entirely
broken up. Meantime Lieutenant A
got beneath the nearest machine and
fired an entire drum-of cartridges into
it at fifteen yards. The hostile ma
chine collapsed and "crashed." That
is a supreme word in the lexicon of
the flying corps. A machine may fall,
or dive, but until it is actually seen to
"crash" it is not counted as an enemy
f A Hero's Work.
After seeing his particular enemy
crash. Lieutenant A. drew off to
think things over. He was somewhat
amazed to see still more hostile ma-
Lchines coming up in formation. Out
he dashed at the leader ot the new
comers and sent him in a spiral nose
dive to a "crash." This led to still
more complications and the intrepid
little pilot soon found himself en
gaged with three machines. His fight
with these was indecisive.
"For" says the official record, "hav
ing expended all his ammunition,
Lieutenant A set off for home."
A few days later, it is related, he
took a running dive into a formation
of twenty hostile machines with all
the self-assurance an eagle might have
in the midst of a flock of sparrows.
Before he was through he had sent
three adversaries- crashing.
"This time," says the record, "he
returned to one of our aerodomes for
more ammunition and returned to the
scence of battle, where he engaged
and dispersed such enemy machines
as remained in the vicinity. One was
seen to crash upon a housetop."
A Diving: DueL
This same little Lieutenant A seems
to persist in the records of the serv
ice. Une day he was crossing the en
emy lines at 11,500 feet when he found
himself directly above a German kite
balloon, sent up for artillery obser
vation. Pretendinor to be in trouble.
and this avoiding fire from the anti
aircraft guns, he fell in side-stalls to
1,500 feet, suddenly righted himself
and dived at the balloon. He opened
and continued firing until he almost
touched the big gas bag. Just as he
passed over it, the thing burst into
flames and was destroyed in a few
The Germans lately have adopted
the ruse of "stalling" and shamming
a tall out ot control. It is thrilling,
but not uncommon to see a German
machine, when closely pressed, turn
its tail straight up in the air and dive
toward the earth lor a distance ot i,
000 to 3,000 feet, and just as the
unitiated onlooker would expect a
crash it flattens out and starts pell
mell for its own lines. One does not
always get 'away with this bit of aerial
strategy, however, as is shown by the
record of Captain B. After attacking
three hostile machines, he saw one of
them going down in a spinning nose
dive. He suspected the honesty of
that dive and decided to do a little
diving "on his own." This dramatic
downward duel continued for full 5,-
000 feet, until the German was driven
into a spin "and seen to crash."
Women of Berlin Doing Work
Formerly Done by the Men
(Correspondence of The Associated Press.)
Berlin. Jan. 20. One of the Berlin
newspapers has conducted an inquiry
as to how women-have succeeded in
doing men's work, and to what extent
they will be kept at such work after
The leading electrical company of
the country replied that it was now
employing four times as many women
as before the war, and its factories in
general had favorable results with
women as workers.
The street-cleaning department re
ports that women have done well as
teamsters on night work, but they
have not yet been employed in actual
street cleaning, there being enough
men to do it The onitiibus company
has been employing women only for a
short time, but it reports itself as sat
isfied with them, both as drivers and
as conductors. The leading local ex
press company, which also handles
much baggage and other heavy ob
jects, says that it has some women at
work, but it finds that they are not
suited for such heavy work; they are
also hindered by their clothing in
climbing upon and out of the wagons.
The Berlin Street Railway com
pany has substituted women for men
to the extent of one-half of the names
on its pay rolls; 3,900 of its 4,700 con
ductors are .women, 450 of the 2,750
motormen, 400 of the 1,600 employes
in its workshops, including those en
gaged in washing cars, and 200 of the
500 office employes. The ' company
says: "In all these positions women
are doing satisfactory work, which
varies little from that of the men."
Second Drunk on Part of
Wife Means Allowance Loss
(Correspondence of The Associated Press.)
London, Jan. 25. Loss of separa
tion allowances is the new form of
punishment meted out to soldiers'
wives who are found guilty of drink
ing to excess a second time. This
action, taken by the military author
ities, was found necessary to curb the
appetites for drink of the wives of
soldiers at the front.
Under the newest order the police
have power when a soldier's wife is
taken to a police station for drunken
ness to detain her till she is sober and
dismiss her with "an appeal to her
better nature." If after a second
warning she persists in "such irregu
larity of conduct" loss of the separa
tion allowance ensues.

Dutch Bulb Growers Report
Good Business in Spite of War
(Correspondence of The Associated Press.)
Haarlem, Netherlands, Jan. 25.--Notwithstanding
the prohibition of
bulb importations to the British Isles,
the Association of Dutch Bulb Grow
ers reported at its annual meeting that
the year 1916 had been generally more
favorable than either 1915 or 1914.
The, total export of bulbs in Aug
ust, September and October showed
a decrease of 2,500,000 kilograms as
compared with the corresponding
period of the previous year, but when
if is remembered that Britain took
nearly 7,000,000 kilograms in 1915. it
will be seen that the loss of the Brit
ish market in the last year was large
ly compensated for by increased ex
port to other countries. Higher
prices were obtained than at any
time since the war began.
Of the 19,00,000 kilograms exported
in the. three months named, America
took 9,000,000, or 'nearly half; Ger
many. 5.000.000. and the Scandinavian
countries 4,000,000 kilograms. The ex
port to America and the Scandinavian
countries underwent a very consid
erable increase, as was the case the
previous year, whereas the export to
