Julius Rosenwald to Give One
Dollar for Every Ten Com
mittee Raises.
Upon receipt of word today by
Morris Levy, treasurer of the local
Jewish war relief committee, that Ju
lius Rosenwalt, president of a large
Chicago mercantile company, had of
fered the American Jewish relief com
mittee $100,000 for every $1,000,000
raised by the committee, Omaha Jews
began to bend with renewed energy
efforts to raise their share.
The Rosenwald offer followed an
announcement by Henry Morgenthau
of the American Jewish relief com
mittee that $10,000,000 must be raised
in the United States by June 1 if
the 3,000,000 Jews In the eastern war
zone are to be saved from starvation.
A nation-wide campaign, the Omaha
committee has been advised, will start
at once. Prominent Jews will make
coast-to-coast trips, stopping at the
various cities to address mass meet
ings and the like.
To Give One-Tenth.
The total sum Mr, Rosenwald con
ditionally offers toward the relief is
$1,000,000. He will give this sum, he

000,000. He will pay $100,000 as each
$1,000,000 is raised between this date

his telegram said that thousands of
Jewish men, women and children were
dying in hurope from cold and star
vation and that "this colossal trag
edy constitutes an obligation upon
American Jews that must be met to
the point of sacrifice. The Russian
revolution affords our people the
channel for which they have waited
for long centuries. It .is not life
alone that we can give them, but
strength and courage to take their
part in the great drama of freedom."

Railroad Man Says
Way to Get Rates
Is to Ask for Them
The Missouri Pacific company oper
ates one of the direct lines between
Omaha and Kansas City and freight,
officials admit that the rate on hay
is 9 cents per 100 pounds from here
to Kansas City, while from there here
it is but 6 cents.
"There is an apparent discrimina
tion against Omaha and in favor of
Kansas City," asserted Assistant
General Preight Agent Dozier, add
ing, "but who's to blame? Cer
tainly it is not the railroad company."
Explaining his statement, Mr. Do
zier said: "If Omaha has hay to ship
to the south, the way to get a rate is
to ask for it, When the present 9
cent rate was made on hay shipments
from Omaha to Kansas City it was at
a time when no hay was shipped south
from this market and, so far as that
goes, there is, not very much shipped
"Kansas City in times past had a
rate similar to the Omaha rate, but
the hay merchants there probably
found that they had hay to ship north.
They went after the rate ana got it.
And, while I am not speaking with au
thority, I presume that if Omaha will
demonstrate that it has hay to send
to Kansas City it can. get just as good
a rate there as Kansas City has here.
The distance to Kansas City is just
about the same as the distance from
Kansas City here.
"One thing is certain relative to
rates, and that is the best possible
way to get them is to ask for them
and at the same time show why
thejr should be granted."

Ruby Hutchinson, 14, Would
Save Walter Raueche from
Prison Sentence.
Whether Walter Rauech will take
a baby bride into a honeymoon home,
or whether he will start doing a long
term in the state penitentiary for
wronging the child whom he intro
duced as his wife depends solely upon
the attitude of the county prosecutor
at North Platte. The girl, Ruby
Elois Hutchinson, 14 years old, who
was arrested In Omaha with Raueche,
has volunteered to marry him to save
him from prison.
Sheriff Salsbury of North Platte
took Raueche and the Hutchinson
girl back to that town Thursday.
Charges of being fugitives from jus
tice are pending against them there
But a much more serious charge will
be lodged against Raueche if the
county attorney refuses to sanction
his marriage to the child. It Is un
derstood that Ed CahiK of North
Platte, Ruby's step-father, is much
averse to the proposed nuptials and
wants Raueche sent to prison for be

she was led away from the big city.

To Make Hairs Vanish
From Face, Neck or Arms
Keep a little powdered delatone I
handy and when hairy growths ap
pear make a paste with some of the
powder and a little water, then spread
over hairy surface. After 2 or 3
minutes rub off, wash the skin and it
will be entirely free from hair or
blemish. This simple treatment is
unfailing, but care should be exercised
to be sure and get genuine delatone,
otherwise you may be disappointed.
