Acts of Service
Thousands of persons have expressed a desire
to know how they can best be of service to their
country in the present war. Presumably every
American citizen wants to help in some way.
i here are probably millions who are ready to vol'
unteer for the army and navy, but while the gov
rrnment is evolving its military policy all jntcl
latent citizens can be of assistance.
For one thing economy in the household is
the best kind of national service. The person in
the city can eat less without waiting for food re
strictions, while the farmers in the rural districts
can ntoduce more.
Incidentally there is a consensus of opinion
that the big bond issue might well be broken up
into segments and that the bonds should be of
small denomination. Great Britain haa provided
a method whereby groups of persons may form
clubs to buy one bond, each person contributing
a small amount. Such a system in the United
States would mark the community of interest that
stimulates public spirit and patriotism.
It is true that home economy, subcription to
bonds and the smaller duties of citizenship are
not always inspiring to the individual. Neverthe
less, in giving this quiet service the people of the
country will add to the spirit of unity as well as
to the pulling power of the nation. The smaller
services are quite as necessary as army enlist'
merits and the strengthening of the navy. Se-
' lective conscription is inevitable if the nation is
to be efficient, but even, those who are not called
upon to serve in the army or the navy can do their
Lay of the Late Legislature. '
Quietly, almost unnoted, the longest session of
the legislature in Nebraska's history spluttered
out and the members unobtrusively slipped sway
to their homes. Most of the criticism that will
be laid against the body may be contained in the
harge that it wasted time. So far as the laws it
passed are concerned, they are mainly ol negative
value, just as the session is notable for what was
not done rather than for what was. Aside from
the appropriation bills and prohibition law, very
ittle of state-wide importance was undertaken in
the way of legislation. Much attention was given
to a project having for its purpose the erection of
a new and sorely needed state house, but this was
killed in the last moments of the session, the
democrats deciding to go along with a building
that all admit is not only outworn, but is posi
tively dangerous to its occupants. The ballot was
shortened" by the omission of the names of presi
dential electors, but other asked-for changes were
not granted. Steps were taken to the calling of
constitutional convention, the voters to deter
mine if one is wanted. Of laws of local concern
or minor importance in their application, a great
many were enacted, so that the record of the leg
islature in the total of bills considered-will look
like a monument to industry. That some of the
things proposed to be done were not done is the
chief item in the credit that will follow the mem
bers to their homes.
Service the Main Thing.
The Bee agrees with Congressman Stephens
in his main contention as to the desirability of
passing the president's army bill. What is im
peratively expected of every citizen of the United
States, male or female, is service according to
ability. This may not always be fully determined
by the individual. Admitting that a sufficient
army may be raised through the volunteer system,
we arc confronted by the absolute certainty that
in the ranks of that army would be found many
who might be of much greater value in some other
employment. Great Britain found it necessary
to bring back from the trenches hundreds of
skilled mechanica who had volunteered because
their place was in the workshop rather than on
the firing line. This experience should teach us
something; we have muddled through other crises,
but never has the nation faced one so grave as, the
present Wisdom points the way plainly; the ques
tion is, will we follow it? Under the selective
draft an army may be formed that will be effi
cient in the field and in the workshop and on the
farm as well, back to the tenth man who is said
to stand behind every bayonet. Under such con
ditions no stigma attaches to the draft, as is
hinted at by Champ Clark, but the service is as
honorable as any ever performed in the name of
flag and country.
Political Unrest in Germany.
Dark hints and vague rumors of upheavals in
German political life continue to come through,
all lacking verification, yet each possessing some
quality that keeps it within the range of possi
bility. The latest of these has to do with the
position of Von Bethmann-Hotlweg as imperial
chancellor. It may well be conceded that his
place ia a storm center and that he has held to
office through thirty-four months of the empire's
greatest trials is proof enough of his remarkable
strength, but it is also evident that a tide of dis
content is rising in Germany that may overwhelm
even the strongest. Von Bethmann-Hollweg rep
resents the imperial will, but against him is
forming, or may be formed, a coalition that even
the emperor must in time of war at least regard.
The German people must be disappointed with
the progress of the war; they have given unhesi
tatingly and ungrudgingly of their lives and their
treasure, only to find themselves shut off from
the world, their military position becoming daily
more precarious as their economical aituation is
continually becoming graver. Promises made in
support of pleas have not been redeemed, and
only repetition of those promises is now offered
to secure luriner sacrincea.
Observers of German progress realize that
ante-bellum conditions cannot be restored in
Germany any more than in the rest of the world,
The conservative element, which consists bf sev
eral groups, has been the dominating influence in
the politics of the empire for years, but the course
of the war has strengthened the ranks as welt as
the power of the socialists and liberals, and these
now have lined up for a final test with the reactionaries.
What is actually going on in Germany is hid
den from the world outside; but signs and por
tents all indicate that the people of the empire
are not bearing the strain with the resignation
the emperor and his chancellor would like to note.
Evolution cannot be atayed in nations any more
than in nature, and its forces too long restrained
burst forth in revolution. The readjustment in
Germany may be neither violent nor extensive,
but a readjustment is inevitable.
Getting Cloaer Together. ,
Until congress has finally passed the taws that
will be needed to provide for governmental food
control, nothing definite may be aaid as 1o just
how far the federal authorities will undertake to
regulate the storage snd distribution of food. For
the present effort is mainly bent in the direction
of stimulating production. Serious problems,
growing from untoward climatic conditions, are
sufficiently engrossing for the season. However,
it is encouraging to note the spirit of co-operation
exhibited by the various marketing agencies in
their approach to the government as to future
relations. Correspondence between the Omaha
Live Stock exchange and the Department of Agri
culture, for example, is along lines that shows the
men closest to the marketing of live stock appre
ciate what is expected of them and that they are
disposed to act with the government as far as
they may, to the end that good will come for
all. This is in keeping with the genera) move
ment noticeable all over the country. Americans
are getting closer together in presence of a com
mon danger, a sign that means much for the
preservation of our common interests.
It is inferred from tie Federal Trade commis
sion's report that when the Standard Oil Simon
whispers, "Thumbs up," all .the children instantly
obey. Surely the commission did not expect
disobedience in a well-regulated family.
Getting rich by manipulating the necessities
of the nation is not going to be popular this year

Department of Agriculture
Prophets of the Crops
By Frederic J. Haslcin
Washington. D. C. Aoril 23. The whole De-
nartmenf nf Agriculture todav is humming with
activity. You can not go into the smallest of its
score of buildings without catching the indefin
able feel of large activities and the rush of prep
aration in the air. Nowhere is this feeling stronger
than in the bureau of crop estimates, where they
are quietly and rapidly taking stock of the farm
and food resources of the biggest and richest
producer nation on earth.
The bureau of croo estimates has already told
us that the winter wheat will be 52,000,000 bushels
short this year, and as a result of that information
steps have already been taken to make up the
shortage. The bureau can make an accurate esti
mate of the condition and probable yield of any
important crop in the United States within two
weeks of the day the estimate' is asked for. It
can get in a reasonably accurate estimate by
wire within twenty-tour hours. It can turnisn
similar estimates, not only on crops, but on any
farm materials or on the available supply of farm
labor, which is one of the most pressing ques
tions of the moment.
Efficiency is the result of organization. Few
people have an adequate idea of the huge organi
zation back of the monthly crop estimates. In
every one of the 2,850 rural counties in the United
States there is a county crop reporter, who gen
erally has about four assistants who report to
him, making a total of over 14,000 county re
porters. The reports from these men come to the
bureau at Washington, where they furnish the
basis for one set of estimates.
Then there are the township reporters, work
ing independently, one to every township 33,000
of them in all. These men also report directly
to the bureau, and their estimates are tabulated
and totaled, furnishing the basis for a second esti
mate that is used tor a check on the first.
Thirdly, there is in every state a salaried spe
cialist who has a corps of voluntary reporters
covering the state quite independent of the county
and township reporters, making reports to him
direct. This specialist travels about his district,
and on the basis of what he sees and what his re
porters tell him he prepares a crop estimate of
his state, which he sends to the bureau.
Thus the bureau has three separate and dis
tinct sets of estimates to collate and check up in
preparing its final estimate. By means of this
system estimates are made so accurately that
they check up within 2 or 3 per cent of the actual
crop yield. It is possible to check up the esti
mates on the cotton crop very accurately because
the census bureau is ordered by law to report
on the actual amount of cotton produced. The
crop estimate on cotton has differed, less than 1
fier cent from the actual crop harvested for the
ast three years. For two years it differed less
than one-half of I per cent. This is a good deal
closer than the individual farmer can estimate
in advance the yield from a ten-acre field.
Regular estimates are published monthly on a
long list of staple crops, but the bureau of crop
estimates can give an accurate idea of the national
supply ot everything connected with the tarm.
Recently it was desired to know how many steam
tractors there were in use in the United States.
The bureau sent out queries to 32,000 selected co
operators, and in a few days could announce that
there were 34,000 tractors in use in the United
States. The value of such service to a nation
at war is very clear. ' '
J. he work of the bureau is made possible by
the existence of a national spirit of co-operation
and good will. Only the state inspectors and a
few specialists draw salaries. The thousands
on thousands of crop reporters do their work for
no compensation, often going to great trouble
gathering information and filling out regular and
special reports, and without them the service
would be impossible. Most of the county and
township reporters are farmers, while the state
inspectors get another line on the situation
through such men as millers, managers of grain
elevators, business men and bankers.
When the various totals on the three sets of
estimates have been compiled, a so-called crop
estimating board goes into secret session to com
pile the final estimate. Every precaution is taken
to prevent "leaks," because a little advance infor
mation on the estimate of such a crop as wheat,
lor example, would lead to tortunes being made
and lost on the exchange. The reports of the
state estimators have previously been sent to the
department in special envelopes. They go direct
to the secretary's office, where they are locked in
a special safe, and only the secretary or the acting
secretary of agriculture may open them. While
the crop estimating board is in session usually
a matter of five or six hours the whole bureau
of crop estimates is locked and no one is allowed
to pass in or out. f
When the estimate has been made and orinted
on a number of mimeograph sheets for distribu
tion to the newspapers and others; the sheets Ve
taken down to the telegraph section. I he exact
minute for publication has been made public long
in advance. A few years ago the board was thirty
seconds late in announcing irt results. During
that thirty seconds a rumor got started on the
cotton exchange that the results were ditferent
from what they actually proved and large sums
of money were made and lost in consequence.
un a long table in the telegraph room the
report sheets are laid face down before the rank
ing official. He folds two sheets and hands them
to the telegraph operators. When the estimate
concerns an important: croo mere is a lone line
of newspaper correspondents and others waiting
for the results. Each man is handed a sheet
which he holds before him face down until the clock
ticks off the appointed minute. Then another set
of crop estimates has become public property.
Our Fighting Men
Rear Admiral Albert Gleaves, commanding
the destroyer force of the Atlantic fleet, was
born at Nashville. Tenn., in 1858 and was .grad
uated from the Naval academy in 1881. In the
war with Spain he won distinction in command
of the torpedo boat Cushing, and since that time
he has been an authority on the equipment and
handling of that type of naval craft. From 1904
to 1908 he was in charge of the torpedo station
at Newport. A year ago last November he was
again placed in charge of the torpedo fleet at
Newport. Last year, when the German submarines
made their sensational raid on merchant ships in
the waters around Nantucket, Admiral Gleaves
and his- fleet of torpedo boat destroyers per
formed valiant service in connection with the
rescue of persons on the ships sunk by the Ger
Proverb For the Day.

he was graduated from Annapolis in 1875 and
made his first cruise in the Hartford, Farragut's
old flagship. In his early career he acquired a
sound techincal knowledge of steel and as an in
spector and adviser his services proved of ma
terial help to the Navy department when it began
building the modern steel warships. In the war
with Spain Admiral Caperton waa an officer on
the gunboat Marietta and the close of the conflict

the Naval War college, three years as inspector
of lighthouses, a year or so as commandant of
the Newport station, with long cruises to distant
parts of the world and a period in command of the

Omaha, April 25. To the Editor of
The Bee: Since coming to Omaha
eleven years ago, W. ti. Bucholz

was perhaps above every other man
in the city responsible for the great

position that anything that w:is good
for Omaha and Its business and finan

stitution and that every individual
would receive his share in general
prosperity and advancement. i
Many and many have been tho times
when he could have taken ad' antage
of his personal knowledge In business
matters to have made hJn.lf an in
dependent fortune, but his position in
varUbly wen: that tho banker must re
main a banker and not invest in out
side business affairs and that It was
his ducy to help busing institutions,
back them to an extreme limit and not
only to lend financial aid, but to give

He was a marl of very few words,
of quick and firm decisions and when
he had once given his word to a cus
tomer he was never known to break
it. He had the absolute confidence of
his business friends and customers of
his bank, as well as other bankers, so
that whatever position he might take
on any proposition carried with it a
wonderful weight. He was kind
hearted, devoted to his friends, a won
derful companion to his two sons, and
as a man was the soul of honor in
personal as well as in business affairs.
In Herman Bucholz this community
has lost its greatest friend. Had he
be;n less devoted to his duties and
had thought more of himself he un
doubtedly would be living today. As
it is he gave up his life at the age of
