Take the Lid All the Way Qff!
With the graft talk so freijitently indulged in
Omaha at last focused in definite charges and
counter-charges touching both city hall and court
house, the thing to do is to take the lid all the
way off and expose the whole works to the searchlight.

Nature's Uncontrollable Foreeo.
Newspaper readers are again shocked by sto
ries of the tornado's destructive presence. Along
the trail of the twister lives have been blotted
out, men, women and children maimed and crip
pled, and: millions of dollars worth of property
destroyed. It is a sorrowful record of a terrible
manifestation of the majesty and power of na
ture's force. Solar energy sets in motion ele
ments beyond man's control and sn awful dem
onstration of stupendous grandeur follows. Man
understands the mechanism of the movement, but
stands helpless before it.' It is the working out
of the transition from winter to summer through
law as immutable and certain in their Operation
aa any known. There is a lesson in it for those
who hope for the coming of better things for
man. Nature clears her way through restraints
by mighty convulsions or upheavals and so man
must work out his destiny against odds by over
coming opposition,-. Peace only is, to be obtained
by successful struggle against that which would
check the forward movement to the ultimate goal
and whatever is worth having is worth striving
for. ,. .. . . .
Ready Money in Nebraska. 7 '.
The United States Treasury department must
have had a premonition of the report about to be
made by "the, secretary of the Nebriika Banking
board and apportioned the state's share of the
general contribution to the Liberty bond sale
accordingly. Reports from the banks Under the
state's control show deposits of $208,000 000. an
increase of $66,000,000 within the year. This
amount to almost $200 apiece for Nebraska's
population and an addition of $60 per capita to.
th accumulstion during th twelve months. Na
tional banks report a like condition of deposits,
white loans also- ahow a very healthy state of
employment for the funds; in fact, in all ita his
tory' there never wa so much 'money, in the
state a now, It is hard to realize that less than
generation ago the credit of Nebraska wa
pledged to support a fund that enabled the farm
ers of the state to buy seed. Every evidence of
the material prosperity of the people is in view
and the prospect for it continuance Is bright
Responsibility goes with this wealth and it
owner should us to it that alt their resources
are not devoted to selfish purposes. It is pleasing
to have the state advertised as owning more auto
mobiles per capita than any other In the union,
but it will also give satisfaction to tell the world
that Nebraska has exceeded the, speed limit In
subscribing to the Liberty bonds, helping the Red
Cross, the Young Men's Christian association, th
Red Star and other 'movements for the generat
good. " . "";, :"
Thu is not an invitation to become reckless
in the giving away of our money, for liberal gener

George W. Perkins,- chairman of the commit
tee on food supply of New York City, recently
sent an appeal to all stock raisers and slaughter
house proprietors of the state to refrain from
slaughtering and to do all in their power to pre
vent the destruction of calves, young pigs and
vounit stock senerallv. He said that the commit
tee found that the destruction in this direction
is unusually lartre this sonni.
There are 75,000 less yearling cattle In New
York state today than there were a year ago. This
is due tot the orevailins: hish cost of feed and
the high prices which can be obtained for beef,
lamb, veil, chickens and pork at the present time,
Mr. reruns epitomizes the situation for the na
tion as well as for New York when he savs:'
"The destruction of the young animal life of
this state will have a very serious and far-reaching
effect on our food supply in the next two or
three years. There is no law in this state to
deal with the situation: we are oowerless. there
fore, to do anything in the matter, but the ques
tion is such an important one that we feel im
pelled to make this appeal to you, In hope that
' many of you will feel it your patriotic duty to
correct the present situation so far as lie in
. The argument made for New York applies with
equal force to the whole nation. There is pend
ing m congress at the present time a bill to
prohibit the slaughter of young stock. There is
no question of the right of congress to make such
s prohibition. All the game laws of the nation
and states vindicate the nrincinle which mint he
established now with reference to the slaughter of
young stock,--Nor will mere appeals from mdi-
vidua! cities or state communities be
avail in checking the present tendency,
can be checked only by definite laws and heavy
penalties and through a separate department for
the administration ol lood.
War and Women Workers
By Fredmc J. Hwkx
Washington, May 26. How may the women
and children or America take the places of men
in factories without waste of energy and loss of
health, without wearing out women and killing
babies? The children's bureau of the United
States Department of Labor has set out to solve
this problem by a study of Europe's experience
during the war.
The substitution of inexperienced women and
children for skilled male factory workers has
caused inevitable loss, but it was not this alone
which caused Great Britain and France to estab
lish commissions for the investigation of labor
conditions. It was because in time of emergency
the government of each of these countries has
looked for quick intelligence and found it want
ing; had expected efficiency and been disappointed
and had come at last to realize that this was not
the fault of the workers, but of the industrial
system itself.- 1
Great Britain's new educational bill contains
a number of progressive measures which would
doubtless have been scorned by the House of
Commons before the war. Moreover. Herbert
Fisher, the president of the Board of Education,
in a speech made in Parliament a few weeks ago
declared that hereafter it would be the policy of
England to insist upon the education and indus
trial training of the masses, so that the nation
could depend upon a sufficient number of skilled
4nd intelligent vorkers. One of the measures of
the bill which Mr. Fisber expects to put in fcyce
as soon as" -possible is the provision for con
tinuation schools for persons between the ages
of 14 and 18. The attendance of these schools
will be for not less that eight hours a week and
will be at the employer's expense. '
Keep Jealous Guard on .Food Stores. '
The burning of the Maney elevator, no mat
ter what started the blaze, is a deplorable event,
entailing a los of food that might have been
aved by exercise of more jealous watchfulness.
The Be many days ago gave warning of th
danger to the storehouse end urged that extra
vigilance be exerted in guarding all placea where
food wa atored or manufactured. The National
Board of Underwriter since has taken timilar
action and urgently pleads for greater care in1
guarding against fire. Ordinary precautions sre
not enough in these troubled time. The only
way to make sure of safety I to know every mo
ment just what the condition i and to see that
all employes are properly charged with the im
portance of the work entrusted to them, t
At any time destruction of property through
preventable fire ia regrettable; if the los come
through culpable carelessness It is criminal; in
this time, when sll sre bending every effort to
conserve food, the loss of sn elevator and its
contents by fire Is s calamity. Incendiarism tin'

snd deserves the severest of punishment. Owners

perative than this at present
. Arousing the Russian Army.
One of the mightiest undertakings of the pres
ent war it that now going forward in Russia,
where the leaders of the reorganized new govern
ment are endeavoring to arouse the soldier In ihe
field to a sense of their responsibility. All par
ties, save the extreme radical socialists (who
realty are anarchists) have united in appeals to the
soldiers, pointing out the futility of - making
separate peace with Germany at this time, and the
danger to the new republic that ties In this direc
tion. What effect thia will have is yet to be
shown, i Along the Russian front hostile activity
has ceased, and Hindenberg has been permitted to
withdraw haa legions to engage them against' the
allies of Russia on the west. Beautiful pictures
sre drawn of the soldiers of the two armiea fa
ternizing together, playing games and exchanging
visit Instead of engaging in mortal combat, but
the picture remind one of the child playing with
the rattlesnakeinnocence exposed to sudden de
struction. If Minister Kerensky, who has the con
fidence and support of all his associates and of the
several factions now dominant in Russisn politics,
succeeds in arousing the soldier to the perils of
the situation, he will have done much for free
dom's cause. Until more definite word is hsd from
Petrograd, anxiety will be the part of the allies
of, the Slavs. . , "

In the first place, according to the bureau, at
the beginning of the war in Europe the industrial
world was completely disrupted. Factories sus
pended their production, hundreds of people were'
thrown out of work and thousands were starving.,
Then the industries besan to rally, as the war be
gan to create its extraordinary demand for pro
duction, and finally the war boom set in. 1 he
neecj for labor was again normal even above nor-
nal but it was impossible to get it. Ihe ma
iority of the men had enlisted, so the women and
the children had to step into the factory har
ness. It is estimated that there are now 300,000
women working in the 'munition factories of
France and approximately the same number in
those of Great Britain. ,
But even this was not' eifough. The machin
ery had to be kept goings night and day to supply
sufficient military equipment and the manufac
turers began to urge the necessity of certain ex
emptions in the labor laws. The minimum age
limit for the employment of children was low
ered in both countries, the regulations concerning
overtime, became extremely lax and the number
of hours constituting a legal-working day de.
pended largely upon the judgment, of the manu
facturer. . -" ,. i
After these conditions haa gone on for about
S year the government, authorities began to be
worried. ; i uey were not ootaining; tne expected
production. :. In spite of the employment of alt
the working? 'DODulationi indudine men. women
and children,-on twelve-hour shifts," the results
were far below the original estimates; . -
It was then that the industrial commission
were organized and put to work. . What they dis
covered ltd the government authorities to rein
force -everv rea-ufatlon .concernine the minimum
'age Jaw,' the eight-hour 1 day -and some new and
very stringent laws in regard to overtime em
ployment. - Perhaps the most remarkable results
obtained were those of the British fatigue com
mission, which conducted an extensive inquiry into
the principal causes of fatigue,
As a result the commission reported the fol
lowing tacts: First, that i fatigue accumulates
during the day and under normal conditions is
dissipated at night.-' mat is, person, under or
dinary circumstances is able to entirely, recover
from fatigue accumulated during? the day by on
night's rest. However, by the end of s week his
abilitv to recover is lessened, while his ability to
acquire fatigue is increased, so that one night's
rest is not sufficient. Hence tne necessity ot a
complete rest on Sunday and on Saturday after
noon when possible.
becorrn, that more work may he accomplished
In short hours than in long hours. In other
words, a person who works eight hours a day is
able to-accomplish more than a person wno
works ten hours a dav and five times as much as
a person working twelve hours a day. This is
because their recovery from fatigue is much
greater, owing to the longer period of rest, and
they are therefore able to exert greater effort.
The commission made the absolute recommenda
tion that overtime be abolished from the factories
altogether. In its experiments conducted in con
nection, with this feature it was found that not
only was the output no greater on account, of
extra hours, but in most cases it was actually
less than that produced in normal hours. In
some cases where the operation of machinery is
almost the sole process connected with the out
put," says the commission, "overtime may be jus
tified, but even here results showed that more
could be produced with a second shift." "
The commission also discovered that home
conditions, the health of the worker and the
amount of food consumed ati had their effect upon
hi accumulation pf fatigue, but the main factor
in combatting fatigue was rest. Concerning this,
tt says: Under ordinary circumstances labor is
performed in tasks of definite length, separated
by intervals of rest. Under ideal conditions rest
intervals would be sufficiently often and suffi
ciently prolonged to insure that a perfect re
covery should be attained after the performance
of every task."- .. .

Give All a Chance to Fight.
Omaha, May 25. To the Editor of
The Bee: I write this in the name of
humanity. After reading the articles
written by Irylng Cobb, Wythe Will
lams, and many other of our war cor
respondents, recounting the atrocities,
the mutilation and devastation com
mitted in the countries of our allies,
how can we. a nation whose standard
has always been freedom and liberty,
allow the most common and also the
most ignoble trait. Jealousy, to stand
in the way of help being sent when
It Is offered freely, gratuitously by
men whose whole souls have been
wrung by the horrors that have taken
place; men who are willing to give
their lives and that of their sons that
the world should have peace and free
dom from oppressors? Are the men
from France and England, who are
now struggling for their very existence
and that of their country, men who
have been trained to march in unison,
to present arms, to stack arms, and
to carry through all the exercises in
which a cadet Is trained? Do you
think that on the battlefield, in the
trenches, the ambulance corps, or
anywhere outside of - the military
academies, auch tactics are needful?
How can we as a nation take the re

allies, and spur them on to a victory
that otherwise might not be gained.
