Our Country's Flag.
It is in no spirit of jingoism or vainglory that
Americans today hang out Old Glory to the
breeze If ever a people have shown by their
works their devotion to an ideal that nation is our
own. That Ideal, symbolized by the flag of red
white and blue, is the highest and purest to which
a united people has aspired.
Human liberty, human opportunity, 4iuman
happiness, is our aim; to secure these to all men
is the sum of our purpose, At different times we
have taken up arms in the defense only of
these rights, and have rested at once when
they were established. Under the flag that em
bodies the aspirations of freemen, we have stood
invincible in the cause of mankind.
Today we face a grave crisis; it cannot be
said we have not counted the cost entailed by
firmness for what we hold to be right. Within
the last thirty-two months we not only have had
ample opportunity to observe the dreadful horrors
of modern warfare, but we also have had time in
which to consider our own unpreparedness for
such a struggle. Circumstances have drawn us
very near the vortex, and the portent of the
immediate future seems ominous.
And this is why the flag flying over the homes,
from the business houses, displayed in windows
or worn as part of the dress of the day is so
significant It means Americans are still anim
ated by the spirit that gave birth to that flag,
and appreciate its message to the world. Its
presence is not a menace, nor a boast, but a
pledge to all mankind that the light of liberty,
now shining so clearly throughout the world, will
not be permitted to die down on the altar dedi
cated to it under the Stars and Stripes.

Advertising at a Fighting Force.
Taking time by the forelock and profiting by
the experience of Great Britain in war time, ar
rangements are under way for systematizing and
directing through one channel all government
advertising f national character.' The work
will be in charge of advertising experts under
the direction of an advisory board of the National
Council of Defense. Co-operation of all depart
ments In this particular line insure prompt and
practical results and expert direction at minimum
cost. A vast amount of publicity by the gov
ernment will be necessary if war comet, to arouse
the people and bring home the magnitude of the
task on hand. A half century of comparative
peace and plenty developed a rooted tense of
security which the world war has only partly
, dispelled. The illusion of safety and isolation is
' shot to pieces, likewise the notion that national
service and sacrifice may be evaded. A like false
sense of security, tpringing from its "splendid
isolation," obtained in the United Kingdom dur
ing the early days of the war. The awakening
came like an earthquake shock and none too soon,
'Yet more than a year's time wat needed to or
ganize, concentrate and train the various forces
necessary to give full effect to Britain's fighting
strength. Government publicity, direct and sharp.
proved the most effective means of bringing home
to the people a full realization of their duty.
When the first call for 100,000 men went out, offi
cial publicity brought them. Every medium, from
newspapers to posters, hourly flaunted the coun
try's demands. Advertising under expert direc
tion was potential not alone in raising armies and
. energizing national industrial resources, but also
in rallying the financial strength of the empire.
The last government loan wat the crowning
triumph of British publicity, both in sweeping ex
tent and magnitude of results. With assured com
petent direction and co-operation equally effective
results in this country are assured when the offi
cial bugle call of publicity It sounded.
Making a Bad Mesa Worse.
When the Zimmermann note waa originally
disclosed it evoked in this country an angry out
burst of two different kinds. People looking for
an excuse ta denounce Germany seized upon it
at conclusive proof of double dealing and illy
concealed enmity, while those who felt more or
less sympathy for the German cause refused to
believe in its authenticity and charged that it was
a malicious British invention or forgery.
As The Bee emphasized at the time, the
Americans of German descent and leanings felt
more outraged and humiliated by the acknowledg
ment of the genuineness of the Zimmermann
note, which they had at first refused to credit as
the product of a sane mind, than did any other
class of our citizen!. Giving it the most generous
construction, it was an inexcusable "break" due
either to ignorance or to misconception of con
ditions actually 'existing in this country, coupled
with a reckless disregard of the plight in which
it wat calculated to put German tympathizers
in America.
But now we have a bad mete made worse by
the silly effort of Doctor Zimmermann to justify
his note inviting Mexico to seek an alliance with
Japan and make war upon the United States for
the purpose of stealing and annexing; a slice of
American territory. The German minister has
the brashnest to rise in the Reichstag and assert
that he had warrant for his preposterous pro
posal to covertly set Mexico upon its neighbor,
with which both countries were at tiiat moment
professing sincere friendship, by reason of the
subsequent public proclamation of the United
States inviting atl neutral nationa to join with ut
in protest against the invasion of neutral tea
rights. Such tpecious pleading can hardly find
acceptance in Germany, much lest in the United
If Doctor Zimmermann were wise he would
keep still about hit note to Mexico in the hope
that tilence would help others to forget it.
Geography in Pictures.
Teaching geography through meant of pic
tures it not exactly, novel, although the plan
adopted in one of the Omaha schools hat tome
elementi of newness. Actual photographs, pro
jected on a screen, are a decided improvement
over the grotesque "cuts" once used to illustrate
text books, and through which tome absurdly
distorted notions were inculcated. Most of ut
would give a good deal if we could view in fact
tome of the monstrosities we imagined at a result
of impressions gained from "Peter Parley" and
hit successors. Modern methods of illustrating
have done away with much of the misinformation
conveyed through the pictures presented, and
children coma away from school with clearer
ideal of the countries and peoples of the globe.
In the scheme for projecting the viewt it is not
clear if the picture supplements the text or the
text the picture, but the result will be good if
between the two tuch co-ordination is reached
as will achieve the purpose of all elementary
teaching, which is primarily to open the mind and
stimulate the imagination of the child. When this
it achieved a proper thirst for knowledge is im
planted, never to be quenched. Any school
method that does not have this in view, or that
falls short of its accomplishment by reason of an
inherent defect, is unworthy.
"Blank Date" in Press Messages.
Newspaper readers already are becoming
familiar with one phase of war operations, that
of concealment of the origin of newa dispatches.
Absence of the name of the point from which
the message it dispatched must not be construed
as exposing the authenticity of the informtaion to
suspicion; rather, it should be accepted as better
proof of the reliability of the report. "Trifles
light as air" are of moment to the military as
well as the jealous mind, and for this reason the
government hat asked the newspapers to be cir
cumspect in their publication of information that
might possess value to a possible enemy. This
does not mean that the quest for newt has been
relaxed; it is the keener if anything, but the pub
lishers of the country have considerable respect
for their Implied obligation to co-operate with the
government in all reasonable defense arrange
ments. Therefore, without in the least harming
the efficiency of the news-gathering and distribut
ing function of the great press association of
which it is a member, The Bee, along with all
other self-respecting newspapers, cheerfully com
pliet with the request from Washington, and
Blank Date appears In itt columni at an indica

II j, Victor Bosewater
IN HIS TALK to the Rotary club ex-Governor
Carey of Wyoming gave a vivid description
contrasting his first glimpse of Omaha, nearly
fifty years ago, with the Omaha of today. He
said he came west the first time about 1868, if I
recall the date correctly, riding ry rail as far
as Council Bluffs and crossing the river on the
ferry. Having no familiarity with the town and
knowing no one here, he listened to the swarming
mob of hotel runners who were shouting out the
virtues and attractions of their respective hostel
ries and he followed the one who yelled the loud
est and drew the most beautiful word-picture of
the haven of refuge awaiting the weary traveler.
When he subsequently took his bearings, Mr,
Carey found himself in a dingy back room over
a noisy barroom in a wooden shack, so-called
hotel, located somewhere on Farnam below Ninth,
where sleep and quiet were impossible, and the
next day he moved to a more inviting place. The
point is the change in the methods and character
of the receptions which we accord strangers who
come to town. I remember the old passenger
station down on Tenth street, with a wooden
platform in front of it, or behind it, according to
the point of view, against which the hacks and
hotel buses were "parked" and a chalk line down
the middle which was supposed to hold back from
the defenseless traveler the attacking army of
driven, cabbies and hotel cappers mobilized into
action every time a train arrived. Our passenger
depots, Busy as they are now, by comparison are
as tame as a Quaker meeting beside the boister
out hustle and bustle with which they were once
The news of the death in Rome of the famous
American sculptor, Sir Moses Ezekiel, serves to
call attention to the fact that we have here in
Qmaha fine example of this great artist's work
and also makes of more interest his fascinating
life story. He was born in Richmond, Va., and as
a boy served in the cadet corps of the confederate
army, afterwards going to Europe to study sculp
ture, where he soon won high honors. For more
than forty years he lived in Rome and was long
looked up to as the dean of the art colony there,
his studio being constantly a rendezvous for
noted visitors from America as well as a center
of the best music in Rome. The eastern papers
give lists of the important examples of his work
owned in this country, the last one being a statue
of Poe, completed only a few weeks before his
final illness, to be erected in Baltimore. The
piece by Ezekiel here is a bust of the late Aaron
Wise, founder of the Jewish reform movement in
this country, after whom our Wise Memorial hos
pital it named. The bust standi in the entrance
hall to the hospital and is carved life sized in
beautiful Italian marble. It bears the inscrip
tion, "M. Ezekiel, 1906, chiseled by his own
hand." There is a little story back of the pre
sentation of this bust to. the Wise Memorial hos-
fiital which few people know. The daughter of the
ate Rabbi Wise is, the wife of Adolph S. Ochs,
well known publisher of the New York Times.
With her husband she was touring in Italy at the
time my father was there as a delegate for the
United States to the World's Postal congress, all
of them meeting in Rome. Renewing their acquain
tance, they came together socially and reference
was made to the hospital in Omaha and the fact
that in its name it it a memorial to Mrs. Ochs'
father, whereupon the desire was expressed to show
some appreciation of the compliment and right
then and there a commission was given to Sir
Moset Ezekiel to execute the bust, which in due
time was completed and forwarded to its distant
destination on this side of the ocean. I do not
believe, however, that our art lovers yet fully
realize what possession of this fine example of
work by one of the world's master portrait sculp
tors meant lor umana.
Newspaper men are not suooosed to sav much
about libel suits, especially about libel suits
against themselves, for fear of encouraging them.
I put in several daya this last week in attendance
open court for the hearing of a $20,000 libel suit
against The Bee. in which a nromntlv returned
verdict of the jury decided absolutely in our favor,
or, in other words, that the plaintiff had no just
claims to any damaget whatever. I am not going
to discuss this case except to remark that there
are libel suits and libel suits, but that mighty few
of them ever have any merit. When a newspaper
is embroiled in a political tight or starts out to
attack public evils or official corruption, the per
son exposed at fraud or crook often rushes to
court with a libel auit as the only means of de
fense or vindication. These cases are incidentals
of the battle of the fearless newspaper for the
public weal. But where any one feels that he
or the hat suffered an injustice from an article
printed without animus in the ordinary course of
news garnering, me nrsi ana natural ana nonest
thing to do is to come to the newspaper at once
with a request for a correction or the publication
of the other side of the story, which offers the
only way to repair the damage. When the party
who makes out that he is injured flies to courtfor
money balm, rather than for exculpation, it is
a ten-to-one shot that the grievance has been
worked up by a lawyer with a contingent fee in
terest in the possible profits and it is also better
tnan an even break the case will not stand up in
court. The truth is that the news spread out
daily before the readers of the average newspaper,
considering the time pressure and the obstacles in
the way of reporters and the disposition of many
people from whom information must be sought
to exaggerate and distort their stories, is really
a marvel of accuracy and the serious mistakes
remarkably rare as compared with the incitements
to error.
Unfeeling critics too often compare the finsn
cial poverty of the ministerial profession to the
munificent incomes of the sporting worl. Accu

Having a prescription com
pounded at a Kexall drug store
means prescription insurance
in the very highest sense of
the term. It means that you are
going to get just exactly what
your physician ordered.
When a doctor write, th. name of a
drug or medicine, together with the
correct proportion, there is only one
way th;t that prescription should be
fitted. When you bring your prescrip
tion you may rest assured that just
what the doctor calls for you will re
ceive. That's prescription insurance
worth while.
