Although the most serious of the great problems which today occupy the attention of the German leaders is the food question, of al rnoieo,ual importance is the situation presented by transportation difficul ties. Until the present winter these difficulties were felt, but wore little recognised generally as constituting a major problem until the shortage of food became acute hy rrason (if the lack of rolling stock, the deprecia tion of freight cars and the sudden cofd spell which froze the rivers ami canals, hindering or preventing trans portation of the most necessary foods to centers of population. Surplus Cars Worn Out. At' the beginning of the war Ger many had a surplus of railway car riages, freight cars and locomotives, which had been provided expressly against emergency, in consequence, transportation in the first two years of the war was adequate for all the tinuual demands made upon it, not withstanding the extension of the ler , ritory served. The conquest of Hel ' gium resulted in the capture of a com , paratively large number of Belgian freight cars, which today may be seen everywhere in Germany, Poland, , Lithuania, Austria. Hungary, Serbia . and e.vn Roumanta. The factories in . ' which rolling stock ordinarily is pro s duced and repaired, however, are ' needed urgently at present for other ; purposes. Moreover, the shortage of oils has made it impossible to keep ! the cars in proper condition. Such few cr as were captured in Rus ' sia have been found unavailable be ; cause they are of broader gauge. The German surplus, deteriorating from ; month to month, has gradually gone to pieces. Shortly before the corre-' - spondent left Berlin it was deescribed , by an unusually outspoken German railway official as "miserable." ; Passenger Service Decreased. J From tyne to time passenger serv- - ice in all parts of Germany has been ? reduced, until at the present time the J trains, which at this ason are cold J to the freezing point, are terribly 'overcrowded, frequently late and sel tdom complete even short journeys I without at least one hot box. Since the beginning of the war the govern ment has proceeded on the basis that 'the troops must be supplied with all kinds of necessities at the expense of ' everythin else, and even the mag nificent German trackage system is loaded down constantly with trains ! carrying troops, supplies and ammu ' nition. Npt only is it impossible for civilians behind the front to .travel .'.without difficulty, but food supplies ; often are jeopardized. Centers like J, Berlin have not had even their scant allotment of potatoes, flour and other ; commodities. i The arrival of spring' and warmer ! weather will help the situation, but not greatly, because it will merely make water transportation again pos sible. Thorough-going repairs for the re-establishment of railroad equip ment would be possible only by cut ting down the output of ammunition from factories that in peace times were car shops, but were reorganized for war purposes. Situation In Austria Worse. All that applies to Germany is doubly true oi Austria and especially of Huugary, where the gradually in creasing shortage of cars and depre ciation of rolling stock in general are added to the difficulties imposed by the tremendous stretches that arc single-tracked; for instance, from points only a short distance from Budapest all the way to Transyl vania. Whereas the Germans in the early days of the war had men and materials to reconstruct hundreds of miles of broad gauge tracks in Russia, the praews of double-tracking lines of communication to Roumania, Ser bia and Albania is increasingly diffi cult. Austria-Hungary, which is less ready than Germany to resort to. stringent measures, remied for the time heihg to consider plan pro posed by Germany for lightening the transportation problem by preventing prospective travelers from using trains unnecessarily. It was pointed out that the train service might be reduced still further if travel were regulated by a card system.

The work is now being push ed w,ith all possible speed since the - weather has moderated a little. The St Regis is to be a handsome structure from the outside view as well as inside. The Spanish renais sance style of architecture is to be carried out in detail. A lily pond, a fountain, shrubbery and miniature trees all within the "U" shaped court yard, will help to carry out the Span ish suggestion.

I 4 kit ' WW - .nfviiiMii m Nebraska Optometrists Will Study Skiametry at Session Here Skiametry is not one of the "omet-. ries" studied in the high school, nor grade school, nor yet in the Commer cial High school. ' No, but several hundred full grown men in the state are coming to Omaha this week to study it. They will study it at the Paxton hotel. The men who arc coming arc the members .of the Nebraska Association of Opto metrists. Skiametry is one of the branches of their profession. They know what it means, even if the laity does not know. More than that, they are go ing to study dynamic skiametry. Dr. W. U. Needles is coming all the way from Kansas City to lecture to them on dynamic skiametry. Of course, they are going to hear lectures on other technical subjects, too. For theirs is an intricate pro fession and trade. Their work in life is to make old eyes new by the proper adjustment of suitable glasses. Ojj Wednesday morning they are to havf a round table discussion, led by C. C. McLeese of Davenport, Neb. This discussion will have considerable range, touching perhaps on skiametry JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL MAY BETRIED OUT Aim of Institution Is to Train Thos Who Are Unable to Go Through High School. . BOARD MEMBERS FAVOR IT The establishment of a junior high school is one ot the problems which the new Board of Education hopes to work out this year. It is possible that this feature may be inaugurated at the opening of the new schoojl year next September. Members of the eachcrs"and course of study commit, lee are inclined to favor the junior high school, but considerable thought must be given to the details before the proposition takes form. The purpose of the junior high school education is to broaden thfl op portunities of children who do not expect to go beyond the Eighth grade in their school work, llns proposed school would embrace the Seventh and Eighth grades and would in a way remove what one of the board members refers to as the sudden jump from elementary to high schools. To Get Advanced Training. The iunior high school would be particularly for those who do not ex pect to enter high school. The rec ords show that many public school children stop at the Eighth grade. That class would be given some of the branches now taught in the high schools and during these last two years of the grades they would be offered advanced manual training work. Chairman Wells of the teachers' committee is favorably impressed with the junior high school idea and asserts that his committee expects to go into the subject thoroughly in the near luture. Reports from cities where the jun ior high school idea has been tried out indicate its success. Safe Robber's Sob Story. Softens Jenning's Heart "I want to wait for my wife and daughter here," said a well dressed man as he entered the photographic studio of Sam C. Jennings, 315 South Sixteenth street. "You are welcome to do so," said Mr. Jennings, and went upstairs to finish some work. He was not up there for more than a few minutes when he heard his safe door slam. He rushed downstairs and accused the visitor of robbing the safe. The man denied the charge very indignantly. Jennings notified the police by telephone. Then the stran ger confessed that he had rilled the safe. He returned the money to Jen nings, with sob story about a sick child. Jennings let him go and then notified Captain of Detectives Ma loney of what'he had done. "Thank you very much," said the captain in words that bristled with sarcasm. ml v again, and on various other subjects bearing on the trade and profession Their convention is scheduled for two days of actual work and one half day of registration.

UNITARIANS HAVE MONEY FOR CHURCH Prospect for New Building Bright and Work Will Start Soon. LECTURE NEXT THURSDAY Reports of $14,000 gained in assets and of $12,000 pledged in addition to ward the building of a new church edifi ce since last fall, caused enthusi asm among seventy-five men and women at the annual meeting and dinner of the Unitarian church of Omaha Friday evening at the Pax ton hotel. A brick church and parish house, built in L shape with basement, will be erected in the spring at Turner boulevard and Harney street, at a cost of $.15,000, according to last night's report by the building committee and trustees. Decision on some of the details of construction was to have been made, but illness of Architect Alan McDonald prevented considera tion of sketches and specifications. Prospect Bright. W. F. Bixter, chairman of the fi nance committee, announced that the subscriptions to date toward the building fund greatly exceeded ex pectations and forecasted marked suc cess in the church's efforts to erect an edifice that would be paid for in advance by comparatively small pledges from all the Unitarians of the city. Mrs. Georsre A. loslvn. William Newton and C. W. Russell were re elected trustees of the church. Mr. Russell, as chairman of the trustees, presided at the meeting and reported for that board. Rev. Robert F. Leavens, castor. told of church activities since he came here last October. B. W. Capen. treas irer, told of the big gain in assets, making a total of $2.1,000 now in hand. Mrs. Russell, vice president of the Women's Alliance of the church, re ported for the president, Mrs. George W. Holdrcgc, who was ill. Charles Bennett spoke for the Unitarian club, of which he was formerly president. Emphasis was placed upon the lec ture to be given next Thursday at the Boyd theater by John Haynes Holmes, Unitarian pastor in New York city. Last year the lecturer was welt received in Umaha.

Patriotic fervor stirred participants at the closing dinner of the season given by the Gridiron club of Washington to nigJit, with President Wilson, mem bers of the cabinet and others promi nent in government and business life of the nation as guests. Songs that rang with the spirit of Americanism and demonstrations or loyally to the 'president w?rc inter spersed with travesties on the peace note leak investigation, woman suf frage pickets at the White House gates, prohibition for the District of Columbia, California's part in the na tional election, with Senator-Elect Hiram Johnson impersonating him self, and with other satirical allusions to various phases of national life. Sang a Song of Leaks. The leak inquiry was caricatured in several sketches, one of them a musical melange, and another a melodramatic effusion entitled "The Waif," in which "Administration Leak" appeared as the heroine and "Barney (T. W.) Lawson" as the irrepressible villain. Introducing the musical sketch, one of the corre spondents with a tremulo tenor sang 'Down on the Leaky Way." wliicl was followed by another sung by a club member in the character of Rep resentative Wood of Indiana, whose resolution led to the congressional investigation into charges of a leak on l he peace note message. J he l-eaky Way chorus ran thus: Corns whr? the Inffirmatlon oozei, Down on th beaky Way; Come sea the Ijimba at play, Be.ars eager for the fray: Come hear the tickler cently ticking, (Jiving the leaka away, Bee the brokers gay, They are making hay, Down on the beaky Way. The impersonator of Representative Wood was presented as "William Wood, the Plumben the Man Who Stops the Leaks," who sang: I rome from Tndlanny, A itateaman grat and true, And when 1 smell a scandal I don't care what I do; Oh. if I hear a rumor. I follow It for weeks. For I'm William Wood, the plumtwr, I'm the truy who tops the leaks. Jeat at the Suffragettes. "Hazel Jones," as one of 4hc silent suffrage sentinels at the White House, was introduced and made the target of seyeral jibes jn a minstrel skit. "Do you know Hasel Jons?" queried one of the wandering mlnBtrel-correaponrlnntn. "Why, yes," was the response. "She l on ft of the silent sentinels at tho White House gates." "Do you know Hazel had an awful acci dent T" "Is that so? What happened to Hazel?" "Why, one of those bfg fat squirrels in the Whitf iloune grounds hit off her ear." "That's horrible. Did they kill the squir rel?" "N'o, Indeed. The president said It wasn't i hi squirrel's fault, and the president was right." 1 must disagree with you. The president was wrong." You Can t Blame a Squirrel. "Well, suppose you were a squirrel and you were hungry and you couldn't get any pork chops, or lamb chops, beef steak, or fried onions, or anything like that, and you were just a plain, old-fashioned squirrel with an appetite for nuts, and tor eight hours in the rain and the snow and the sleet somebody stood In front of your house that they called Hazel I loave It to you. The president was right; he sure was right." Camping Tonight was a song to the suffrage sentinels, running thus: We're camping tonight on the White House . grounds, i Give us a rousing cheer; I Our golden flag we hold aloft. Of cops we have no fear. Many of the pickets are weary tonight. Within for the war to cease Many are the chilblains and frost- mites, too, ' It is no lire of ease. What They Didn't Tell. "Tom Lawson, Barney Baruch, Charley Sabin and Otto Kahn" ap peared as a quartet, singing: "They met Tom Uwoon In the Street, Barney and Charles and Ot. Tit said: "You buys appeared to know More than the public ought; Now won't you come to Washington And tell about the leak?' They whispered: No. no, thank you Tom.' And dldn t give a squeak. "But Tom came, willing, eager, toe, And said l hey should be brought 3o Henry sent a Hergeant-at-arms for Burney and Charles and Ot. 'Now boyn,' said Bob, 'rome tell us all About this Inside ring.' They whispered: 'No. no thank you, Bob.' i And dldn t tell a thing.

John Snare, correspondent of the Des Moines Register-Leader, psuedo Ellis island officials conducted an immigration examination for ad mission. Inspector to applicant sharply: "Born?" Applicant: 'Tea." "Business ?" "Rotten." "Foreign country?" "loway." "Who Is president of the United States?" "'Woodrow Wilson." "What does he do?" "Spends most of hil time dodging women with yellow flags.' "Who Is the vice president?" "I don't know." "Never mind, neither do we. Who makes the laws?" "Woodrow Wilson." "If Wilson makes the laws, what does congress do?" "Squanders money on creeks, rivulets and bluffs, mostly bluffs." Thereupon the applicant qualified for admission. Some Ah Sin Stuff. In the inauguration of Ira E. Ben nett, originally from California, as president of the club, a group of Cali fornia "bad men" and Senator-elect Hiram J. Johnson appeared. "Ah Sin" described the recent election, conclud ing thus: "The vottne- went on a way that I grieve.

Major Gen eral Leonard Wood, commander of the Department of the East, address ing the Canadian camp here last night declared sportsmen should take a hand in the preparedness movement by teaching every youth how to use a gun effectively. He declared only one person in 500 in this country knows how to handle a high-powered rifle. "You hear in these days,' he ad ded, "much about 'America for all the world.' We want that feeling, of course, if all the people coming here will live up to the ideals of this coun try, but we don't want them if they bring to these shores any of the ani mosities of the old world.

Is? ieatfOaoJuWaeaeeeeeaftaMi Shippers in Nebraska are now j likely to escape the proposed increase in demurrage charges on intrastate business. A hearing which was to have been held on the application February 15 has been indefinitely postponed. This is taken by the shippers to mean that ihe matter is not likely to be decided before the limit of time during which the increase ordered on interstate business is to be effective. Nebraska shippers consider them selves particularly fortunate in this matter. The question of increased de murrage came up strongly in the In terstate Commerce commission dur ing the heat of the car shortage trou bles. The interstate body allowed the roads to put into effect an in creased scale. It provided that after the expjration of free time the rail roads might charge $1 for the first day the car was held out of use. It held that they might charge $2 the second day. $3 the third day and $5 a day for every day after that time. This, however, being an interstate order, applied only to interstate busi ness. What Iowa Did. Iowa and some of the other states in the west allowed the same rule to apply on business within the state, or intrastate business. -The railroads at once made application to the Nebraska Mate Railway commission for permis sion to apply the same rule here on intrastate business. The hearing has been repeatedly postponed. . The order of the inter state commission, being made merely to cover the emergency situation growing out of the car shortage, ex pires May 1. Since the last post ponement of the hearing it is believed now that no hearing will occur before the interstate order expires, after which date, of course, there will no Monger be any interstate grounds for seeking a state order.
