clash tomorrow night at the Audi-

Taylor is coming to Omaha with
blood in his eye, according to Ray

in his way. Jack has-high hopes of
seeing himself become the wrestling
champion of the universe. But Fits
tins -must be disposed of if he is to
take that title to Lincoln,
It is the same way with Plestina.
The Omahan has similar ambitions
and Taylor is a barrier he must hur
dle. The match Friday night will result
in.a "survival of the fittest." If Ples
tina returns victor he will be in di

Rotary Club Gets Behind Move
to Make Concentration
Omaha Rotarians want a mobiliza
tion camp for Omaha.
Following a talk by President E. C.
Henry, in which he urged the club to
get behind the movement and pledge
the co-operation of the other civic or
ganizations of Omaha, the Rotarians
unanimously adopted a resolution ask
ing the government to make Omaha
one of the mobilization points at
which the great army of the United
States is to be mustered into service.
'The middle west must he aroused."
declared President Henry. "A mobili
zation camp in Omaha will be a great
aid; it will arouse the interest of the
middle west and the patriotism so that
this part of the country will do its
share. The middle west is lacking in
this respect today."
Telegrams containing the-iirnatures
of every Rotarian at the meeting
Wednesday noon will be dispatched to
Washington, urging that a qamp be
established here, not only because
Omaha is a point of advantage, but to
arouse the spirit of the middle west.

Chalmers Sensational Run
Sets New Motor Car Standard
A Chalmers on March 26-27 tet a new high mark in motor car history. On
that date was established a standard in city traffic performance that promises
to endure. To cover 586.8 miles through dense Chicago traffic in 24 hours is
no mean feat. To do it with a stock 7-passenger touring car, carrying 4 pas
sengers, on high gear only, without motor stop, and making 14 miles to the
gallon of fuel is a superlative performance.
Chalmers accomplished the feat
with case. It did it because of the
quality ofits motor, the excellence
of its design, the thoroughness
with which it is built. Thus is
proven the flexibility that a motor
car owner of today demands. Thus
is insured that economy that ap

Railway Postal Clerks Place
Blame for Delay in Mails
on Postmaster General.
THEIR POSITION STATED
The congested condition in the
United States mails and delays in de
liveries are due to changes made by
the postmaster general and put into
effect January 1, was asserted at the
convention of the Fourteenth division
of the Railway Mail association yes
terday. Delegates are here from Oma
ha, Lincoln, Denver, Pueblo, Chey
enne and Billings.
"Mails are held to be worked in
terminal stations, instead of being
worked on trains, as heretofore, and
delays will continue until the service
is put back on the basis that main
tained! before January 1, last.
"The cutting down of distances run
by railway mail clerks has resulted
in a duplication of work and conse
quent slowness," it was contended.
The mail clerks hold that their oc
cupation is one of extra hazard and
that, therefore, they should have cer
tain additional privileges and allow
ances. They are opposed to having
their runs cut down. They want the
eight-hour day, but that does not
mean that they object-to working
sixteen hours continuously. When
they do work sixteen hours they want
the next day off to make up for it.
The convention ooened with oraver

mittees were appointed. New officers
were elected as follows:
President, U. S. Marron, Denver;

delegates to the national convention

Will Tax Whisky More Than
Five Dollars Per Gallon
Washington, April 25. In laying
their plans for raising nearly $2,000,
000,000 for war expenses from taxa
tion, house leaders are confident there
will be no nation-wide prohibition
legislation at this session of congress.
Optimistic prohibition champions
now are hoping for no more than a
law forbidding the sale of liquor to
soldiers or sailors.
The ways and means subcommit
tee, which is drafting a preliminary
revenue bill is considering increasing
the levies on whisky and beer to the
highest possible figure. Big advances
in the present tax of $1.10 a gallon on
whisky and $1.50 a barrel on beer
are certain to be recommended to
the full committee.
Some committeemen have gone so
far as to suggest that the tax on
whisky should be raised to $5.41 a
gallon, the present English rate. The
