" That Everyday Life Goes
On Abput As Usual
THOUSANDS AT BALL GAMES
BY A. R. GROH.
Everyday life in at least ome of
the warring countries of Europe
seems to go on much as usual these
strenuous days.
George Chandler of The Bee has
received some daily newspapers from
Glasgow, Scotland, that make an ex
tremely interesting study.
We have a vague idea that the peo
ple there think of nothing but the
war, talk of nothing but the war,
stand in line most of the day to get
food, and then stagger faiptly home
to cook it and eke out existence a
little longer.
We imagine there isn t i man of
military age to be found on the
streets. We fancy there ire no thea
ters open.
Very different are the actual facts.
Here it a -copy of the Glasgow
Post of Sunday, March 4. Sixteen
pages, and the price is one penny,
which doesn't indicate a paper short-
Theaters Are Open,
, On page 11 are fourteen theatrical
advertisements and "Personal Gossip
from Theaters and Music Halls."
Page's 14 and 15 are filled with
snorting news. The scores in no less
thin forty-nine foot ball games, played
the previous day, are given. It takes
quite a lot of able-bodied young men
to play forty-nine foot ball matches
eh, what? And think of the thousands
of other young men who were acting
as spectators. Columns are given to
detailed descriptions of some of the
previous day's games. This paper
offers a prize of 100 pounds weekly
for the best forecast of fifteen foot
ball games.
The paper is full of advertisements
of many things from kidney pills to
Yorkshire tweeds for clothing.
, Of course, there it plenty of war
news, too. And it is surprising what
buoyancy and hopefulness pervade
the paper.
Clamor for Peace,
One story tella of the capture of 600
Germans from raided trenchet by
seventy French. Another article deals
with the British prisoner! who have
returned from Germany. One of
these men reports that "despair and
depression are spreading among the
people and in Leipsit and Frankfort
the people are clamoring for peace."
J le declares that one of hia German
guards tola him, "We cannot win
now. The British are bound to beat
us." .
Another article is headed "Wearing
Down the U-Boat Pirates." The
writer estimates that Germany had
300 U-boats February 1 and that 100
of these have been lost. He says
Germany admits a loss of fifty. He
estimates that the British and French
anti-submarine patrol can destroy
twenty-five a month and that Ger
many is building twelve new ones a
month, The real root of the trouble,
he say, it the fleet of about ninety
big ocean-going submarines which do
the real damage and if this fleet can
be cut down one-half he thinks the
failure of the U;boat campaign will
be established.
One articje points shamefully to
the fact that' "in the third year of the
war we have spent more on intoxi
cants than in any previous year of our
history."
There it a picture of nine British
captivet in Paderborn, Germany, tent
by one of the captivet to his father,
They all look healthy and well-fed.
There it a three-column account of
two British soldiers lying in a ahell
hole for tix dayt and finally being
taken out by the Germant and nursed
back to health. Englishman, kama'
red," waa the friendly way in which
the Germans greeted their wounded
toe I. : . . . ,
Bee Flags Are Now to,
Be Seen On All Sides
The first supply of The Bee flags
was quickly exhausted, a rush wire
order went the same way and a sec
ond wire order was tent.
Forty flagt were ordered by the
Walnut Hill school teachers and 120
by the South Lincoln school teachers
and pupils. Brown Park school sent
for thirty-four flags.
Hundreds of these flags Have been
placed on wind shields of automo
biles. They serve acceptably for win
dow decorations. -

Woman's Handbag On Street
K. C Reed, 1207 Farnam street, has
notified the police that on Dodge street
between -Thirteenth and Fourteenth
He found a woman's handbag, said to
contain a sum of money. The name
jf M. J. Peterson, Plattsmouth, was

RAIL CONGESTION BETTER
"While there are more flags flying
and more bands marching the streets,
there it nothing to indicate that there
is any more patriotism in the eastern
cities than right here in Omaha." re
marked J. A. Munroe, vice president
of the Union Pacific, who has just re
turned from several weeks spent in
Washington and citiet along the At
lantic coasr. '
Mr. Munroe went to Washington to
appear in several cases before the
Interstate Commerce commission in
which the Union Pacific i: interested.
None of these cases were reached.
Decisions were handed down, how
ever, In a number of railroad cases,
but they related to local conditions
and had no bearing upon the general
railroad situation.
in New York aud Boston, as well
as in practically the eastern cities vis
ited, Mr. Munroe asserts that there
was no particular excitement over in
ternational matters, yet there was a
feeling of intense interest. War talk
he found to be pretty general and an
inclination upon the part of nearly all
to stand behind President Wilson in
the position he has taken. Said Mr.
Munroe:
"Since the censorship has been
placed on the army and nav, there
is much less talk than previously, al
though everywhere there is an indica
tion that preparedness is going on in
all departments of the government
service that would have to do with
war in the event that it should come.
"The freight congestion problem
seems to be working itself out and
the shipments are moving more freely
than in a long time, but, of course,
normal conditions have not been com
pletely, restored."
