OMAHA TEACHERS
ASK HIGHER WAGE
Principals Appear Before Com
mittee and Request Advance
in Salaries in Grades, But
No Decision Beached.
A committee of public school prin
cipals Friday afternoon presented to
the teachers' committee of the new
Board of Education a request for 25
per cent increase of pay for 850 teach
ers of the grade schools.
This matter was presented last fall
to the outgoing board and had been
carried along as unfinished business.
Chairman Wells of the teachers, and
Chairman Reed of the finance com
mittee reported an existing deficit of
S250.000 and a further deficit of $350,
IWO on account of cutting put of liquor
license money. The increase asked by
the teachers amounts to $175,000 a
year.
"Teachers do not have sufficient
food to enable them to do their work
efficiently. The only time many of
them are warm in winter is wh,en in
the schools," said Mary A. Reid, prin
cipal of Saunders school..
Seek Work for Summer.
Clara B. Mason, principal of Park
school said: "Many teachers who
should have a chance to be resting
or studying are seeking work for the
summer vacation. The Commercial
club is advertising Omaha as the
most prosperous city in the, country.
I am sure you men will find a way to
give the teachers mare pay before the
school year closes next month."
"Ten of the seventeen teachers at
my school," said Principal Robinson
of Saratago, "are helping to support
homes and in six cases this help is
absolutely necessary."
Mr. Reed of the finance committee
suggested that this is a time when
all must share the burden.
No decision was reached. The mat
ter will be brought before a meeting
of the entire board next week, in com
mitte of the whole.

bers of the crew of the freighter Mun
ising, stranded for five days in an ice
floe in Lake Superior, seven miles off
shore, are starving, all efforts to get
food to them have been futile.

Haiti Congress Refuses to
Declare War Against Germany
Port Au Prince, Maiti, May 12.
Congress today refused to declare war
on Germany.
A resolution was adopted protesting
against the submarine warfare. The
president was authorized to break off
diplomatic relations if Germany de
clined to make the reparation de

Haitiens and to give guarantees for
the future.
McAdoo Warns Everybody
Must Do Bit to Save Loan
Washington, May 12. Secretary
McAdoo sounded a warning today
that unless every person who possibly
could "did his bit" toward subscrib
ing to the liberty loan that it might
fail.

"that the loan will be fully subscribed,
but the impression should not be per
mitted to go abroad it is certain to
carry unless it will."
ONE MAN TO SPEND
BULK IN U. S.
Agreement Being Drafted to
Oive Body of Perhaps One
Person Power to Buy
Everything for War.
Washington, May 12. An inter
national agreement, under which there
will be placed in the hands of a small
commission, possibly of one man, the
purchasing power of virtually every
dollar of the billion j to be lent the
allies by this government and the ad
ditional billions which they will spend
in this country out of their own in
come, is in process of formulation.
Draft of the proposed agreement
has been left to Secretary McAdoo,
who has already conferred with for
eign envoys on the subject. Great
Britain, France and Italy are under-,
stood to have signified their desire to
"titer such an agreement and other
entente governments are likely to as
sume the same attitude.
The agreement would seek maxi
mum efficiency, both for the allies and
the American government for every
dollar 6pent ill this -ountry for war
purposes.
The commission would have the
widest purchasing powers ever en
trusted to any one body of men in the
history of the world. It virtually
would be a purchasing agencv for all
Christendom, with the exceptibn of the
few remaining neutrUs and the cen
tral powers.
It would eliminate entirely competi
tive bidding among the allies and this
government for American products
and would seek to assure 100 cents
worth of value for every dollar Spent.
The plan involves no fixing of
prices, nowever.

The more serious'the purchase of
a car is to your family, the more
seriously you should consider
Overland.
Consider what a guarantee it is to
own a car backed by a company
with $68,000,000 assets; with an
army pf workmen that would
populate a good sized city; with
acres and acres of modern fac
tories, and more than 4,000
dealers and branches.
The magnitude of The Willys-Overland
Comoanv is due to its man
agement: due to the practical
policy of utilizing prodigious
production as a means to
quality and lower prices.
The Willys-Overland Company
guards its obligation to the own
ers of its cars as seriously as a
conservative bank protects the
ter
interest of its depositors, large
and small.
The Willys-Overland is predicated
upon the need for cars of
beauty, comfort and conveni
ence in addition to long-lived
utility.
The average family can participate
in the luxuries of motoring be
cause hundreds of thousands of
other owners enable The Willys
Overland Company to distribute
and bring down costs.
Such a car as the Overland Big
Four would never have been
possible at such a price as $895
had it not been for over 300,000
similar Overlands which have
already gone into service.
Come in and see the Overland
Big Four and the most compre
hensive line of motor cars ever
built by any one producer.

THE hair mattress without doubt is superior to mattresses made of any
other material. It is more economical, more comfortable, more sani
tary. But until the introduction of SLUMBERON the better grades of hair
mattresses have been a luxury. The cheaper kinds were not satisfactory because
they were either not all hair or because they were made of very poor materials.
Sanitary HalrMattfeSS
SLUMPERON Is made entirely of new, high grade
curled hair, cleansed and purified to the greatest
degree. SLUMDEKON is made in a light, sanitary
factory under the best conditions possible. The
covering is heavy dust-proof ticking of extra quality.
SLUMBERON sells for $25.00. We can only sell
this exceptionally fine mattress it this low price
because of our purchasing and manufacturing fa
cilities. This price ia only slightly more than that
charged for inferior cotton or fibre mattresses.
The SLUMBERON is four feet six Inches wide
and weighs forty pounds.
Look for the Slumberon Label on. every Mattress
Ask your dealer to show you a SLUMBERON. Youll recognise It by the blue and gold label on the
end. If he doesn't handle them write ua and we will aend yon the name of a SLUMBERON
dealer near your home, together with our valuable booklet "Correct Sleeping." '

Nuxated Iron Should Be
Used in Every Hospital and
Prescribed by Every Physician
Says Dr. Howard James, late of the Manhattan State Hospital of New York and formerly Assistant Physician
- Brooklyn state noipitai.
It quickly enrichei the blood, strengthens the nerves and puts most astonishing youthful power
and vigor into the veins of both men and women. It oxtcu increases the strengtn and endur
ance of delicate, nervous, run-down folks 100 per cent in two weeks' time.
Opinion of Dr. Schuyler C. Jaques, Visiting Surgeon of St. Elizabeth' Hospital, New
York, Dr. A. J. Newman, and other physicians who have tested
Nuxated Iron in their own private practice.
In a very intersitine and Initructlve dis
course on tht great values of plenty of iron
in the blood, Dr. Howard Jameo, late of the
Manhattan State Hoipltal ot New York and
formerly Assistant Physician Brooklyn

Nuxated Iron, an elegant, ingenious
preparation containing organic Iron,
which baa no destructive action on

quickly makes Its pretence frit

dangerous maladies. The real and true cause
which started their diseases was nothing
more or less than a weakened condition
brought on by a lack of iron in the blood."
"Thousands of neonle suffer from Iron de

If you are not strong or well, you owe
It to yourself to make the following test:
See how long you can work or how far vou
can walk without becoming tired. Next take
two five-grain tablets of Nuxated Iron three
times per day after meals for two week.
Then test your strength again and see how
much you have gained. I'rom my own ex

valuable remedy that it should be keut

The manufacturers are to be congratulated
in having given to the public a long-felt

osBily digested and assimilated form. A
true health builder in every sense of the

Dr. Schuvler C. Jaqnea, visiting Sur

was Dr. Ferdinand King, a
New York physician and Medi

"I heartily concur in all that
Dr. James has said, only in
some reapects I would go
further. Dr. James forgot to
mention how foods lone their

starches, sugars, table syrups,
candies, polished rice, white bread, soda
crackers, biscuits, macaroni, spaghetti, tap

no longer is iron to be found. Refining pro
censes have removed the iron of Mother
Earth from these impoverished foods and
silly methods of home cookery, by throwing
down the waste pipe the. water in which our
vegetables are cooked are responsible for
another grsve iron loss. Therefore, H you
