"MAC" BALDRIGE IS '
TAPPED AT OLD Ell
Omaha Student One of the Tew
of the Country to Be So
LUTHZR KOUNTZE IN LIST
Malcolm Baldrige, (on of Mr. and
Mrs. Howard H. Baldrige, was one
of the Yale men honored at the an
nual "tap day" exercise! held at Yale
college Thursday, being tapped for
the famous Skull and Bones. It. was
one of thi honors that could be con
ferred upon a Yale undergraduate.
Young Baldrige was i member of
the Yale foot ball team last season.
He is ranked as one of the prominent
athletes of the eastern university and
has won fame as wrestler, as well as
other branches of sport.
The Omaha young man is probably
the only sop of old Eti from this city
honored at the "Up day" exercises in
recent years. Most of the Yale grad
uates of the younger generation here
were "tech" students and therefore
not eligible to societies like Skull and
Bones and Scroll and Keys. j
. L. L. Kountre of the well known
Omaha family was tapped for Scroll
and Key when he was a student at
Yale years ago.

stance at Yale having been run Into
a wagon tongae on the street.
Younger former Yale men here could
not recall an instance of another
Omahan being honored at the "tap
day" exercises in the last few years.
"Tap day" exercises were held at
Yale college Thursday, six weeks in
advance of the customary day the last
Thursday in May, because of the ex
traordinary conditions created by the
war. Eleven of the undergraduates
elected to the senior societies were
tapped at Palm Beach, Fla., where
they are serving with the: Yale serial
coast patrol unit. Among these fit
were tapped fir Skull and fynes and
six for Scroll and Keys.
A feature of tht exercises was the
tapping of Charles P. Taft, 2d, son
of former President Taft, as the fif
teenth, or last, man to Skull and
Bones the highest honor that could
be accorded. Newell Garfield of West
Mentor, O., a grandson of the mar
tyred president, was the first man
tapped (or "Bones," the next honor
ary choice. ,
Robert B. Deins of Fhoenixville,
Pa., refused a tender from Keys and j
was tapped by Skull and Bones. I
Ethan A. Shepley of St. Louis was
tapped by Scroll and Keys after he
(tad refused an election to Wolf's
Head. Among others tapped by the
three societies were:

Omaha Women Rejoice at Progress
Of Suffrage Bill in State Senate
Mrs. Anna 0. Mttcalf Gives
Credit to Co-Workers for
ment in Nebraska.
NOT RESULT OP WAR SPIRIT
War and the way Nebraska women
are organizing to "do their bit" had
nothing to do with the favorable re
oort on the suffrage bill by the sen
ate committee, Omaha women believe.
It was Mrs. Barkley ot Lincoln
working away at the senate, sitting
there day after day and watching the
status of the bill, to whom credit is
due," said Mrs. 'Anna Cornish Met
calf, president of the Equal Franchise
Mrs. Metcall said the greatest joy
she had ever experienced was when
she notified her board members
Thursday of the suffrage victory.
Their surprise and joy was touch
ing," she said.
' The progress of the prohibition bill
during the. last week made the out
come of the suffrage bill certain," was
Mr. H. C. Sumney's comment. "It
was bound to come. Any set of men
with a sense of justice and fair play
would see it.
Mrs. Sumney, with Mrs. James
Richardson, Mrs. Edward Burke and
Mrs. T. E. Brady, worked unceasingly
in the campaign, deluging members of
the legislature with telegrams, tele
phone calls and suffrage literature.
Mrs. t. Ai. ratrnem, formerly city
central suffrage chairman, was not
inclined to rejoice prematurely. "I
can't believe it until the governor
signs the bill," sh said.
"The assurance of the franchis for
women in England and Russia, Presi
dent Wilson's stand that the demo
cratic party was pledged to give
women the vote and the six or seven
States which recently have given
whole or partial suffrage to women
this winter must have had some
weight with tht Nebraska legislators,"
she said. .
"The antis have helped, too, in the
way they have rallied to do patriotic
service as the suffragists also have
done. The antis have demonstrated
'that woman's place is not in the
home.' When there is work to be
don out of the home it must be
don," she added.
Stecher Throws Linow
.In Two Easy Falls
Kansas City, Mo., April 20. (Spe
cial Telegram.) Joe Stecher has
again displayed his ability to apply
the body scissor hold. With 4ts use
he defeated Ivan Linow, a giant Rus
:n, last night. He won in atraight
falls, the first being gained in eight
een minutes and the second in thirteen
minutes, Stecher's physical condition
was not what it had been in former
contests here, due to a strenous cam
paign. But he was too powerful for
the - Russian, although Linow out
weighed him by about twenty pounds.
