Cattle Receipts of cattle
were quite liberal, being very much larger
than on Monday of last week, but not so
large as two weeks ago. The decline
which started at the close of last week con
tinued today, prices on beef steers, eows
and heifers being weak and In many cases
aa much as 10 01 to lower. A few of the
best feeders sold at about steady prices, but
others were lower In sympathy with the
decline on killers.

Freight Blockade in
Wyoming Has Been Raised
The Union Pacific has raised the
Wyoming blockade, so far as it ap
plied to freight service. Passenger
trains went back onto schedule last
week, but not until now have the
freight trains been running on time.
During the eight days that the Un
ion Pacific was tied up by the Wy
oming storm more than 1,000 cars of
through freight accumulated. The
cars carrying the shipments were
stored in the yards out from either
end of the blockade. Now they have
been moved out and it is asserted
that all trains are just about on time.

L. Fridstein Tells Commer
cial Club How America Can
Eaise Efficient Army.
VOLUNTEER PLAN NO GOOD
Six months of intensive military
training tVir .rv American W in
his nineteenth year is advocated by
the Universal Military Training
league. Field Secretary A. L. Frid
stein of this league spoke at a public
affairs luncheon at the Commercial
club at noon. He reviewed the pro
gram of the league, and stated that a
bill now in congress provides for the
program of the league.
"We should have enough of a regu
lar army, of course," he said, "to gar
rison our coast defenses and guard
our insular possessions. Then every
year about 1,000,000 young men in
America reach the age of 19. Of
these perhaps 50 per cent are unfit
for military duty. The rest could
serve, thus giving the nation evrrv
year a crop of about 500,000 or 600,000
young men trained, in military service.
If War Comes.
"Then if war should come we
would have the 500,000 under training
ready for service at once. Next, if
necessary, the 500,000 trained the year
before would be called. Then the
500,000 trained two years before, and
so on, until th! force was brought up
to adequate size to handle the situa
tion. "But if we never have a war. that
six months of training would give us
every year a crop of splendid Ameri
"The voluntary svstem never HiH
and never will work. It was shown
in our civil war, the only great test
this country has ever had. and it is
shown in England today. Do we have
to pay the price that Great Britain
is paying before we learn?
Now, if our program anneals to

Oldest Bank Makes a
Change in Directorate
An imDortant chance took nlac
Saturday in the Bank of Florence
whereby J. B. Brisbin. its president.
retired from its active management
to look after his Drivate interests and
iom k. Kiiey oi umana. who tor the
last four years has been a bank ex
aminer for Nebraska, has succeeded
Mr. Brisbin as president and D. f.
Riley has been elected on the hnarH
of directors with Tom R. Riley,
Thomas E. Price, Charles J. Keirle
and W. T. Brisbin, the latter continu

Much interest attaches to this bank
on account of the fact that the Bank

Wright Talks to Credit
Men at Ftjntenelle Friday
Every indication is that the meet
ing of credit men from Omaha and
other parts of the state the evening
of February 16 at the Hotel Fonte
nelle to hear H. Victor Wright of
Los Angeles will be a large one and
that the capacity of the room en
gaged will be filled. The room has
a capacity for about 125 men at the
table, and Secretary Metcalfe of the
Associated Retailers says at the pres
ent rate it looks as though these
places would be all taken before that
date. Reservations are coming in all
the time from out in the state. Some
thing over fifty credit men from
tpwns out in the state have already
indicated their desire to attend.
