Emma H. Hendricks, 22, 114 North
Twenty-fourth street, applied at the
navy recruiting station. The other
two, who wanted to become telegraph
operators or stenographers in the
army, did not give their names to
Sergeant Hansen, but declared they
were anxious to serve their country
in case of war.
' Miss Fillmore, who helps her
mother with the home making, is
ready to enlist as a sailorette or yeo
man for land service. All four ap
plicants will have to wait until the

Miss Emma H. Hendricks, 22, a
Paxton block stenographer, is the first
Omaha young woman to volunteer as
Hearing el the new ruling which
permits women to enlist hi the regu
lar navy as yeomen or cltrks for
land duty at shipyards and recruiting
and training stations, she has offered

women. ; i -.- . ' i
Puts Application on File. '
' "We will be glad to 'enlist you reg

authority and instructions," the lieu
tenant told Mis- Hendricks. "In the
meantime, we will put your applica

Several days ago, the navy recruit

er young woman, who said she was
Alice McCain of Lincoln. However,
she decided not to enlist, and has not
returned since. So Miss Hendricks
will have the honor of beii.g the first
actual -woman recruit here.

Al's Alibi FailsC With
Police Judge Fitzgerald
' "I tell you, judge," said Al Barton,
colored, of 980 Pacific street, when
arraigned in police court on the
charge of petty larceny. "I sure have
had tough luck. I work down at the
packing houses and since that Mor
ris fire down there, I've been troubled
'.t- 1 ..J 1 ain't rn
forking steady. Yesterday, I was
walking along the Illinois Central
railroad tracks and I happened to see
some old iron lying around. 1 just
naturally picked, it up, thinking per
haps I could sell it and buy myself
some food. But, as far as stealing
goes, judge, 1 never steal."
i "Ten days in the city jail to cure
your rheumatism," said the judge.
' Freight Car Shortage , "
Is Not Muph Relieved
Superintendent Derr of the Great
Western is over from Clarion and
talking of the freight car situation
said: "I can't see that the plan worked
out by government and railroad offi
cials has afforded much relief.
.- "So far as I can see I can't figure
out how there can be very much re
lief so long as the country has the
stuff to sell and the demand and pres
ent high prices continue."

As Loyal Citizens
V Of United States
Nearly 100 aliens, all of them em
ployes of the Cudahy Packing com
pany, have taken out their first
naturalisation papers at the court
house in the last three days. The
rush at "naturalization desk" rivals
that of the busv davs following the
break with Germany, wlien hordes of
Teutons and Austrians hastened to
enroll under Uncle Sam.
The Cudahy Packing company is
sponsoring the movement of natural
izing all of its employes, and each day
a small army oi roles, Slavs and
subjects of other European countries
comes up to the r court house from
the South Side under the tutelage of
a department head. This naturaliza
tion rush will continue until all of
the big packing company employes
have taken out their first papers.

To Protect Bridges
Co-operating with the government,
railroad officials are taking extra pre
cautions to eliminate the possibility
of destruction to their properties.
This co-operation applies particularly
to the railroads that are of the trunk
line designation and might be called
upon quickly to haul troops and muni
tions in the event the strained rela
tions with Germany should assume se
All the lines operating to the west
and most of those operating to the
east have placed guards at either end
of each bridge on the numerous lines.
These guards patrol the bridges night
and day and all persons except com
pany employes are kept off the struc
tures. The precaution has- gone farther
than the bridges and scattered all
through the switch yards in cities spe
cially deputized men are employed
guarding switches and crossings
where there is likely to be consider
able congestion. '
River Rises Two Feet
In Twenty-Four Hours
A rise of almost two feet in the
stage of the Missouri river at Omaha
has been recorded within twenty-four
hours by Colonel Velsh of the
weather bureau. Thursday morning
the reading was nine and two-tenths
feet, while at 9 a. m. Friday the stage
had reached eleven feet. An even
foot of this rise occurred between 7
and 9 o'clock Friday morning.
Slightly cooler weather north of
Sioux City along the river served a
good purpose in checking the thaw
somewhat, so that there is no dan
cer of -floodine. Colonel Welsh said.
Weather conditions around Sioux
City are such that the ice is honey
combing and breaking up normally,
which will avoid trouble, unless ice
gorges should developd unexpectedly.

Police Magistrate is
Witness Against Rudd
Police Judge Fitzgerald was his
own witness Friday against Chris
Rudd of Dodge City, Neb., who de
nied that he was drunk, even though
his very breath merited a revenue
stamp. "You're drunk now," said the
court, as Rudd tried hard to stand
straight. Rudd was released on con
dition that he go back home. He
said he was arrested because some
body threw him through a window.
