Omaha Firms Adopt Patriotic
Policy Toward Employes
M. E. Smith & Co.
These firms Saturday announced
the adoption of a patriotic policy to
ward men in their employ, wl.o may
enlist for military service.
They will encourage employes to
enlist; will guarantee to re-emply en
listing employes after the war, and
will hereafter give preference in em
ployment to men with honorable
military and naval service records.
Captain James F. McKinley. in
charge of army recruiting here,
started the movement that led to these
firms agreeing to sign an announce
ment of policy along these lines.
"It will help the country through
increased enlistments, for employed
n.en to know that their employers
will hire them again when they re
turn," Captain McKinley said.
"What can men of middle age and
older do to help the nation in the
war?" is a question which the cap
tain says many business men have
"I have told them that they wouIJ
help splendidly if they would guaran
tee jobs, give encouragement to pros
pective volunteers, and show prefer
ence to men with honorable serzice
"The few prominent business men,
whom I had time to ask, promptly and
gladly agreed to adopt a helpful policy
toward their employes regarding en
listment. I shall be glad to hear
from others who will do the same,
and they can sign up on the roll of
! .ior if they wish."
Omaha Lad Gives His
Views of the War From"
From a Trenton (N. J.), paper the
following report was clipped of an
Omaha boy's talk on the war before
the Young Men's Christian associa
tion dinner in that city recently. Carr
Ringwalt, who is the son of Mr. and
Mrs. J. R. Ringwalt of Omaha, and
is well known here:
"At the weekly get-together dinner
jf the Central Young Men's Chris
tian association dormitory men last
night, Charles Carr Ringwalt of Oma
ha, who recently returned from
France, where he served for a num
ber of months in the American ambu
lance field service, gave some very in
teresting and striking comments on
the war situation as it is today.
"Mr. Ringwalt's service was prin
cipally in the Verdun and Champagne
districts. He expressed an opinion
that the war would continue for a
long time and it would be wise for
the American people to realize the
seriousness of the situation today
and prepare to make big sacrifices.
"He stated that the French seemed
to be fighting with a grim determina
tion to win, although victory might
be a long way off. The morale of the
German prisoners he had seen was
good, and he felt that Mr. Gerard
was right when he said that the Ger
mans might be licked, but were a long
way from beaten. Mr. Ringwalt feels
that the United States should soon
have representation on the firing line,
especially with the French soldiers.

PECRUITING RUSH IS ON
A marked increase in the number
of war volunicers is expected this
week by recruiting officers as the re
sult of the passage of the selective
draft bill by congress.
"Now that eligible young men
know that they will he subject to
draft for war service they are more
apt to volunteer at once in order to
avoid being forced by law to serve,"
said Lieutenant Waddell of the navy.
The week just closed brought in a
total of 584 recruits in all branches
and raioed the grand total to 2,2;
since tiic call for volunteers was i
sued the last week in March.
Because of unfavorable weather 1.'
week's recruits were not quite so ii
merous as those of the previous wee'
when 68.' volunteered.
Omaha district's navy recruits la?-:
week exceeded those of Milwaukee,
Detroit, Cincinnati or St. Louis. This
district was exceeded in the middle
west bv those of five cities larger
than Omaha, including Minneapolis
and Chicago, the Omaha district
ranking sixth in the middle west in
number of recruits for the week.
A new recruiting substation for the
navy will be opened Monday in the
Glasgow block, south Side, on iwen
ty-fourth street between M and N
streets. The use of the room has
been donated by owners of the build
ing. Chief Gunner's Mate B. A.
Price will be in charge and will ex
hibit the big torpedo that has been
on display in Umaha tor a week.
To Advise Head of
Peking, April 29. Since the break

Germany an international affairs com
mission has been created to advise the

At the suggestion of the premier,
subcommittees have been appointed
and the various men in the coinmis
sion will deal specially with matters
in which they have had experience.
As a result of the severance of Ger

made in the personnel of the railway
custom staff. The commission has de
cided that Germans employed on the
railways must surrender their posi
tions because ot the close connection
of transportation with possible war
In the customs service it will not
be so easy to discharge the German
employes because of treaties in which
neutrals are just as much interested
as belligerents. It is quite likely that
Germans holding responsible positions
will be asked to leave the customs
service, while those having merely
clerical places will be retained tor the
The International Affairs commis
sion is devoting much time to the
discussion of the conditions expected
to exist alter tne war and is moving
with great caution.
Three Service Branches
Use Strand for Recruiting
Working under instructions from
the War department, the army, navy
and marines will maintain recruiting
offices in the lobby of the Strand the
ater all this week. This arrangement
is because of the showing during the
week of "Womanhood, the Glory of a
Nation," the great preparedness pic
ture made by Vitagraph in conjunc
tion with the army and navy.
The lobby of the Strand will be
filled with literature, army and navy
equipment, and, in fact, everything in
tended to give the people information
with reference to the various branches
of the service represented. In this
work the government is attempting
to reach a class of people who do not
come in contact with war prepara
tions and necessities and therefore
know little about it.

Absolutely the Last Sets
(anywhere in the world) of the Cambridge Univer
sity Issue of the Encyclopaedia Dritannica, Printed
on India Paper, are now being sold and within
the next six or seven days will all be gone.
No more can be printed; therefore, not another set can be sold.
If you want one of these sets, order it at once. Unless you order it now you cannot own the
Britannica in this sumptuous, large-paper, large-type format at all.
If you should decide that you want
to own a set of this great work in the
Cambridge University Issue, go to the
store named below, examine the differ
ent bindings and make up your mind
which one you want.
(You can, at the same time, see the popular,
low-priced Handy Volume Issue of the Britan
nica. It is word for word and line for line
the same, the only difference being that the
page is smaller and the type is smaller).
"All Sold-Not Another Set Left"
will have to be our message to those who
write us about the Cambridge Issue after
another six or seven days.
If you cannot go to the store, but KNOW
that you want the Cambridge University Issue
of the Britannica cut out and mail the at
tached order form (see below).
"A Distinguished Book"
that exactly expresses the physical
make-up and appearance of the Cam
bridge Issue. This is the authorized,
original copyright edition, and bears
on the title page the seal of the
University of Cambridge. It is one
of the finest examples of book-making
The leathers used for the bindings
Half Suede, Three-quarter Morocco, Full Ump Suede and
Full Morocco are the very best of their kind. The
printing is of the highest grade. The type is large and
clear, and is from a special font especially cast for the
Cambridge Issue of the Britannica.
The pages, measuring Ui x b inches, allow of
ample margin, and give generous space to the exauisite
printing of the 500 beautiful color plates and full-page
illustrations. The full-page and double-page maps in
color are rendered particularly clear and easy to refer to.
Everything, in fact, has been done to give the Bri
tannica in this form as handsome a dress as the literary
contents deserve. From all sides we have received
most hearty praise for the Cambridge Issue as a finished
piece of book-making.
You Will Always Be Proud to Own the Great Storehouse
of the World's Knowledge in Such a Magnificent Form
The Britannica's acknowledged scholarship, and its pre-eminence as the finest collection of exact knowledge
ever published, warrant its publication in this handsome format, so pleasing to the eye and so distinctive an
addtion to your library shelves.
But This is Positively the Last Opportunity You
Will Ever Have to Buy It This Is Our Final Notice
The popular Handy Volume Issue, for the money it costs, is just as good a purchase, and you may prefer it
because it is smaller and "handier," but the Cambridge Issue, although it costs more than twice as much, is worth
the additional outlay, especially to those who appreciate and will only have THE BEST of everything.
Less Than 1,000 Sets Remain
76,000 lets of the Cambridge Issue have
been printed, and less than 1,000 remain. In
this form the Britannica has been purchased by
Mr. Rockefeller Mr. Carnegie
Mr. Schwab the late James J. Hill
Cyrus McCormick H. C. Frick
and hundreds of other millionaires.
By every Government Department, Bureau
and Official Board.
By over 50 executives of the Pennsylvania
Railroad; by over 40 of the United States
Steel Corporation and so on, throughout the
world of big business.
By Ex-President Eliot of Harvard (who
bought two nets for his grandchildren), and
by the presidents of every other American
By the big banks, banking houses and
By all the large manufacturing plants, and
by thousands ot business firms.
By thousands upon thousands of business
and professional men leaders in every line
By the leaden of the American Bar and
by over 11,000 other lawyers.
By thousands ot clergymen and thousand!
The Cambridge Issue of the Encyclopaedia
Britannica is also owned and used by all the
European rulers; by the Emperor of Japan
and by the President of the Chinese Republic.
To Get the Cambridge Issue, Act NOW
In a few days it will be too late. You need pay but $5.00 down and $5.00 a month to get one of these last
sets the last there ever can be. No more India paper can be made, and therefore the Cambridge Issue of the
Encyclopaedia Britannica will probably never be printed again.
Go to the store (see below) and see the different bindings; or, if you cannot do that, but are sure you want
one of these last sets, use the order form below.
If you want to examine the Cambridge Issue and compare it with the Handy Volume Issue (which is sold at
60 per cent, less), you can see both sets and inspect all bindings if you go TO-DAY to
