The Liberty loan committee has is
sued a statement as follows: "The
buyers of small bonds are coming in
such overwhelming numbers that it is
impossible for the banks, with their
present force, to tabulate the figures
turned in. It now looks like the com

The committee believes pro-German
influence is at work in Omaha in an

source the report has been spread
among his employes that, the bonds
would eventually go below par. He
said some of his employes were in
clined to refrain from buying on this
O. T. Eastman, general chairman of
the committee, said the same report
lika come trom several sources, tie
ssid thus far it has been impossible
to trace the rumor to its source.
"Instesd of going below par, how
ever, said Jbastman, the bankers
say the bonds will never go below
par, and that if the war closes within
a year or two, the bonds wilt likely
go above par. tor the reason that a
i'A per cent bond, non-taxable, is con
sidered a good investment."
Insurance Men's Total.
The subscriptions taken by the
eighty-three insurance men who gave
their time Tuesday to the sale of the
bonds, totaled $159,850. This was

Beautiful Electric Fountain.
By means of a steam jet system,
upon which colored electric lights will
play, a beautiful red-white-and-blue
effect is to be made in the sky tonight
over the Brandeia power plant at
Seventeenth and Dodge streets. The
Brandeis people have arranged for a
group of steam jets with nozzles,
which will spread the stream in wide
sheets as they shoot skyward. The
Omaha Electric Light and Power
Company is installing electrical fix
tures to play the national colon on
these sheets of whirling, writhing
team. The effect will be that of great
fountains of flame shooting heaven

He has never asked nor thought of
asking help or charity only work to
buy comforts for his family.
I learned that the sick wife could be
taken outdoors this summer if they
had an invalid'a chair that could be
rolled and let down into a reclining
position. There is no possible chance
of their buying one for her, and her
great lovely brown eyes looked at me
when she said, "I hope to be able to

It has been two years since the
dread white plague seized her. She

Do you think there is some one in
your wonderful city who could send a
chair to this dear woman? I feel sure
any bank, store or minister in the

could tell you about them. I am sure
the report must be good.

Eighteen students, comprising the
first class in Joslyn Hall and the
largest class to graduate from the
University of Omaha, received their
diplomas Thursday evening in Jacobs
nan. Bishop Homer stuntz deliv
ered the address on "The Universal
The first thought that he gave the
students was one of wide scope. He
said: "Remember that the telegraphs
and other electrical devices have made
us neighbors in this large world
rather than separated countries. This
is an age of cosmopolitanism and not
provincialism. You are not living in
Omaha, but in the world, although
you may have you apartmenta here."
As most ot the graduates win en
gage in active teaching, the bishop
concentrated his remarks on the his
tory of educstion India, Africa, China
and the Philippines, as far as Eng
land and the United States is con
nected with it. He spoke of the edu
cators as an army that would be in
service for ages.
Looks for Larger School.
In the conclusion he spoke of the
university itself. "The University of
Omaha is furnishing part of this
great educational army and thereby
is doing its work in the world. I
believe and hope that in ten years
from now the enrollment of this col
lege will be 1.000. The students will
not be entirely from Nebraska and
Iowa, but from all parts of the
Mr. Archie Carpenter, president of

OUSTED NEW YORK
PASTOR KNOWN HERE
Bev. T. 0. Hall Professor of
Ethics at Union Theologi
cal Seminary, Founder
of Local Church.
. Dr. Thomas C. Hall, mentioned in
an Associated Press dispatch from
New York as having been removed
as professor of Christian ethics at the
Union Theological seminary, was well
known in Omaha.
In 1887 he was pastor of the South
west Presbyterian church, now known
as the Third Presbyterian church,
Twentieth and Leavenworth streets,
which he founded. A few years later
he accepted a pastorate at Chicago,
from where he later moved to New
York, where he was pastor of the
Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Ichurch.
Son of a Minister.
Rev. Mr. Hall is the son of John
Hall, at one time pastor of the Fifth
Avenue Presbyterian church at New
Dr. A. B. Marshall, president of
Presbyterian seminary, knew Dr. Hall
intimately. He said Hall's parents
were of Scotch-Irish descent and that
this probably was the reason for his
alleged German sympathies.
The Associated Press dispatch says
that Dr. Hall has lived in Germany
most of the time since the war be
gan and that he was decorated by
It adds that he was one of the most
active pro-German speakers and writ
ers in New York when the European
war broke out. At the recent trial of
Captai. Franz von Rintelen and
others for conspiring to interfere with
shipments of munitions to the allies,
the dispatch says, Prof. Hall was rep
resented in the testimony of David
Lamar as the chief organizer of the

Treason's Twilight Zone
Aid. and comfort to our German enemy assume a peculiarly insidious and subtle form, as
we are warned by leading papers in various parts of the country, by the attempts of certain
journals to confuse the minds of the American people about our motives in entering the war,
and to implant seeds of suspicion and distrust concerning our Allies.
On this subject the Chicago Herald very clearly and strongly says: "It's about time for
the ham-stringers that are lurking in the tall grass and the sabotagists who are trying to throw
monkey-wrenches into the war machinery, to shut off and up or look for unpleasant conse
quences." In THE LITERARY DIGEST for June 9th, the leading article discusses from all angles this
new kind of German propaganda which the St. Louis Post-Dispatch notes is found not so much
in the German-language press, as in certain English-language newspapers in German com
munities. This is only one article among many which will be of unusual interest to the American
reading public. Other topics are:

Even the best and most broad-minded of us, if
we live constantly in one place, meet the same peo
ple, and pursue the same round of dally duties and
pleasures, are apt to become parochial, to miss the
wide sweep of the winds of thought and progress
that blow about the earth. Thus situated, we need
some mental tonic, some invigorating stimulus
from without to bring us into harmony with the
onward march of events. And Buch a tonic, such
a vitalizing stimulus every one of us may obtain in
THE LITERARY DIGEST, which clarifies one's
news-impressions, corrects one's world-perspective
and gradually develops in one's mind a sane philos
ophy of current history. It gives you the news of
all countries on all subjects, impartially and inter

Clean, sane and clear-visioned, it puts you in
