RECORD NUMBER OF
Ninety-One Start for Training
Quarters Monday, of Whom
The largest number of army re
cruits turned out in one day from any
single - station in this district left
Omaha Monday, according to officials
at the army recruiting station. Ninety-one
men left for training quarters,
and of these sixty-two applied as
residents of Omaha. Of the eighty
four Poles who applied for admission
Monday fifty-three were accepted, the
remainder being rejected on account
of physical disabilities.
In preparation for the "Marine
Corps Week," which begins on June
10, the marine corps recruiting sta
tion is enlarging on its campaigh in
local picture houses. New slides wereJ
secured Monday and will be placed
in movies as soon as possible. The
three-reel Edison patriotic picture of
marine corps life, the "Star Spangled
Banner," will probably be shown here
during the next week also. Ser
geant Carpenter says -he' has not as
yet completed arrangements for its
appearance here, but hopes to be able
to secure it.
Registration day brought a boom
to all the stations. The marine corps
enlisted twice' the average number for
one day. The fact that a regiment
of marines will accompany General
Pershing is also believed to be ac
countable for this, as only six weeks'
training at Port Royal is necessary1
for service in' Europe.

Largest Flags in Omaha
Are Thrown to Breeze
What are believed to be the largest
flags thrown to the breeze in Omaha
are hung in the center of Douglas
street, between the Nebraska Tele
phone company's building and the
Hotel Fontenelle. There are two of
them, and each measures almost forty
feet in length. They are suspended
from a line attached to the top of the
telephone building and stretched
across to the fire escape on one of the
upper floors of the hotel. Tonight
two great spotlights will be installed
to illuminate both flags.
The two emblems were made in the
hotel's linen room by the Fontenelle
housekeeper. She has also made four
other flags, representing the blood
red emblem of New Russia, of France
of Great Britain and Belgium. These
will be used to decorate the hotel
