Robbed In an Alley Adolph Ros acker of Traynor, la., visiting in Omaha, decided Friday night that he would like to "wet his whistle." When a couple of white men invited him to retire to an alley in the rear of Twelfth and Douglas streets to take a nip he willingly accepted. A couple of min utes later he was shy $10 In cash and a gold watch, of which the two stran gers strongarmed and robbed him as soon as they reached the alley. Fights the Police Crazed with the Illusion that he was destined to be the emancipator of the black race, Oeorge Washington, 2630 Patrick avenue, put up a lusty battle to prevent police from locking him up In a cell at cen tral station. Washington cut his wrists severely trying to jerk handcuffs off and tried to light oft the officers who were locking him up. He declared In his delirium that he was the leader of the black race, who was going to trample down the oppression of the whites. Grmnell Urges That the Farmers Put Out Big Crop J. B. Grinnell, secretary of the Ne braska Farm congress, while in Omaha, suggested that the farmers should use every effort to raise the largest possible crop in view of the demands tor tood stuns that war will bring on. "An army must be fed," said Sec retary Grinnell," and in order that they may be fed the greatest possible crops must be raised. I know a num ber ot tarmer boys, not yet of age, who are planning to run away from home and join the army. If those boys only knew it, they could do just as much for the cause by staying at home and helping their fathers to raise big crops and so put the nation in a position to meet its crisis the best possible condition as to available resources. Opportunities for Men Who Have Seen Navy Service With war declared, and the marine corps liable to see the first of the tctual fighting by Uncle Sam's forces, opportunities are exceptional for red- blooded men of action, according; to Sergeant Carpenter, marine corps re cruiter, ui uouglas street.

A complete marine's outfit is now on display at the marine recruiting oUice.

STUDENTS TO SING FOR OMAHA Kosmet Klub Will Produce Mu sical Comedy at Brandeis Theater Soon. OMAHANS HAVE THE LEADS In Argonia, one of the numerous islands of the Aegean sea, under the protectorate of Turkey, is the scene laid of the action of "The Diplomat," the dashing musical comedy which the Kosmet Klub of the University of Nebraska will present at the Brandeis theater Saturday, April 21. Two acts offer opportunity for some brilliant stage effects, the first being laid in the palace of the dictator, the second in his summer cottage. Omaha Students in Leads. "The Dictator," the leading role, is presented by an Omaha boy, Walter C. Johnson, 2810 California street, with Ellsworth Moser, 5805 Florence boulevard, in the "second lead" as General Paulos. Brooks Vance, 2002 Emmet street, another Omahan, as Freddie Withington, presents one of the principal characters, and Les Putt, 3728 Lincoln boulevard, por trays the dashing Lieutenant Akim. Miss Katherine Newbranch, 1902 South Thirty-third street, is one of the six leading dancers for this mu sical comedy, and several other Omaha people are members of the chorus, which, with the cast, totals fifty people. University students who have been working under the -direction of the author, Prof. R. L. Scott of the state institution, make' up the large com pany necessary to produce this com edy, including the specially trained chorus of thirty-five, which has been for weeks under the supervision of special voice and dancing instructors. Extra effort has been made this year to emphasize the work of the chorus, and it is believed to be one of the features of the production. Some Real Song Hits. Musical hits are not lackinsr in the comedy. One of the big successes is "I Like to Flirt a Bit Myself," a duet, one of the singers being Mr. Johnson, in his role as the Dictator. Two other song successes are "If You Want to Know the Secret" and "Honest, Dear, I Love You." The music and words for "The Dip lomat" were written by Nebraskans, and with an all-Nebraska rnmnaim producing it, the State university alumni in Umaha have arranged for a production of more than ordinary interest to Omaha people. Young Women Plan Strenuous Work for Camp An anonymous contribution of $500, and $600 more in amounts under $25 each, produced the largest total Sat urday of any single day in the cam paign of the Young Women's Chris tian association, to secure a summer camp for working girls. Saturday's total of subscriptions Vis $1,188, which brought the fund already raised to $8,573.61. The sum needed to insure the camp is $20,000, which must be secured in full by next Saturday night, in order to buy the property under the option. Workers in the campaign plan strenuous efforts for the week, in order to accomplish the task of pro viding a nearby recreation place, espe cially for poor working girls and women. They appeal to all interested persons to help them this week, in order that the hoped-for summer camp may be secured. Greeks Plan for Regiment Of Their Own Countrymen Captain James F. McKinley of the army recruiting station will go to Sioux City to attend a meetino- nf patriotic Greeks there, who plan to join the army. He intends to enlist as many as possible in the regular service. By getting special permission frnm headquarters, Captain McKinley says, he expects to have all Greek recruits assigned to the same reaimenr. thus providing a solid body of men of that nationality.

Halter Goes to St. Louis To Confer on the Crops F. L. Haller of Omaha, chairman of the board of regents of the Uni versity of Nebraska, left Saturday for St. Louis where he will attend Monday a conference with Secretarv of Agriculture Houston.

READY FOR EMERGENCY Authority was received Saturday afternoon by Captain McKinley, of the army recruiting station here, to enlist expert linemen and field men of the telephone company, as reserves for fu ture war service in the signal corps of the regular army. , The order makes possible the early enrollment, in readiness for emerg ency call, of two companies, totalling ) trained and ettictent telephone men.

T. Belt, vice president and general manager of the Nebraska Telephone company, said last night that by April 23, the date set for the men to volunteer, he expected to have many more responses than will be needed to meet the first call for two companies. At that time, he said, the necessary men would be selected by himself and other officials of the company, and the chosen ones would be enlisted en masse through the company officials. at the various recruiting offices in the district covered by the northwestern group of Bell lines. The other officials to act with nun in the matter are: Arthur S. Rogers, chief enigneer, and A. A. Lowman, general plant super intendent. Call For Trained Men.
