Last Word of the Army Surgeon.
A large percentage of the millions of 21-30
:nen registered for service will drop out of the
lists through the various exemptions which law
and presidential discretion permit. Exemptions
cover wide range, which may be extended or re
stricted as circumstances require. Assuming that
one-half the number enrolled are eliminated by
sxemption boards, the remainder must undergo
he test of physical fitness, which will cut heavily
... nto the available number. , ' ''
Regulations and army surgeons require a
standard of physical health practically without a
demish. Defects hardly noticed by the victim
ulk large in the army doctors' eyes. A per
eptible limp, a flat foot or overlapping toes are
nough to send a candidate for glory to the rear.
Sight and hearing must be normal, the lungs pcr
.'ect and chost expansion proportion to height and

easily curable, disqualify, as well as skin diseases,
which would render a man objectionable to his

The army surgeon must certify in case of ac

ohmteers, the final test of physical fitness will
ilimklate at least one-third of the .registered from
' me paths of martial glory
Success of the Draft Registration..
Officials at Washington express great satisfac
tion over the success of the draft registration
and why shouldn't they? If is unfair and unjust
to even indirectly question the loyalty of the
young men of the nation. Totals referred to by
critics are not a proof of extensive evasion of the
law, for comparison is being made with estimates,
and the figures furnished for this purpose by the
census bureau may have been conservatively for
mulated, but they are riot conclusive. More com
plete inquiry may develop how far any suspected
tendency to "slack" has permeated, but the sur
face indications are strong that it will not be ex.
isting to the point, of real danger. Reasons for
seeking exemption were asked for, and that not
more requests were made for relief under this
provision by the signers is to be wondered at. Ac.
cepting the present estimate of the War depart.
ment of over 9,000,000 registered, with 60 per cent
asking for exemption, we find 3,600,000 young
men who subscribe themselves as knowing of no
reason why they should not be asked to perform
military duty. . Final decisions on exemption is
to be made by local boards, members of which
will in some sense be familiar with facts and qual
ified to judge of sincerity or urgency of request.
As a whole the registration seems to have been
remarkably successful, showing a far better spirit
among the people than many would admit. If
the Liberty loan comes through proportionately
as well, patriots may be deeply thankful. .
Fifty Years of Energetic Growth.
In this year of jubilee Nebraska is being re
minded in many ways of its attainment of half a
century of statehood. Latest of these remem
brances comes from the State Sunday School as
sociation, soon to hold its fiftieth anniversary
celebration in Omaha. Half a century ago the
state had Sunday schools in proportion to iti pop
ulation, but no statehood. The two came togeth
er, and have grown up together to stature and
usefulness that is not to be gainsaid. Nowhere
does religion have deeper root or wider influence
than in this state, where the cornerstone of all its
institutions was laid in religious and political free
dom. The liberality of the law that grants equal-
ity to all has stimulated endeavor and encouraged
such growth as could not be possible were one
sect' or denomination favored at the expense of
others. The diversity of choice between sects is
characteristic of humankind, and Nebraska offers
the seeker a wide range for selection in his re
ligious preference, but the prosperity of the Sun
day School association is a good proof of the sin
cere devotion of our people to the ways of righte

THE commencement season is again on and the
young folks graduating from school will be
proudly receiving their diplomas. I extend my
congratulations to all of them. Our "Thirty Years
Ago in Omaha column, in its reterence to ine
high school commencement, will have my name
listed along with the others of the class of 1887.
I have told the story of my "School Days in Early
Omaha" before and while it is, to a certain extent,
personal it seems interesting enough to bear it
this particular time, looking back through a
thirty-year vista, showing the beginnings of many
present scnool activities. 1 take tne story as i
wrote it after I was out twenty-five years:
Missouri: Do Your Duty.
Missouri is now confronted by a duty that
transcends any business set before its people since
it was called upon to deal with the outlawry of
the James and Younger gangs. It is to hunt down
and adequately punish the miscreants who stole
and murdered the baby of the Keet family.
In all the category of crime none is more
despicable than kidnaping; abduction of a child
for purpose of ransom carries with it a purpose to
terrorize the parents, to horrify the community
and to shock the public into submission to the
demands of cowardly criminals, whose apprehen
sion it always difficult. Murder committed in
furtherance of these plans is so utterly abhorrent
that a well-balanced mind revolts at its con.
No act of the law can ever compensate the
mother and father whose bab has been destroyed.
but Missouri must pursue the criminal to the
very end that other fathers and mothers will feel
some security for their children. Our civilization
is a failure if such crimes go unpunished.
Morals of the New Army.
The Bee is entirely in accord with the prepara
tions making to look after the young men who are
going into th new army. Plans for providing as
early as possible a good and wholesome substi-
tute for home influence and the restraints only
thus afforded are prudent and commendable. It
is unfortunate, however, that some overzealous
guardians are finding opportunity for pushing
their own pet reforms to an extent that almost
invites condemnation and certainly deserves to be
checked. Our boys are not going to slough off
ii tne good influences and the benefits of the
training they have had just because they are bo-
mg into the army. Proof of this may be had in
plenty wherever a camp is now maintained. Some
of the new soldiers do not behave themselves as
well as they should, but these were troublesome in
civil life as a rule. Army discipline is conducive
to self-restraint, and the morals of the men who
make up our fighting forces have always stood
comparison with those of men not in the service.
common sense ought to govern in this'as in other
matters concerning: the formation of tho
forces we are to send to the front. Let us have
an army of men who stand on their own feet, and
not an organization sissyfied and mollycoddled by

Hours of Labor on War Work.
President Wilson has exoressed hi. ti
bation of efforts to relax laws passed for the pro
tection of labor, while Governor Whitman of New
York has vetoed a bill intended to- suspend the
law limiting the hours of work for women and
children. In each instance the pretext for set
ting aside the law was the need for greater out
put under pressure of war necessity. In this con
nection a report just made in Great Britain is of
much interest. The British government's Com
mission on Health of Munition Workers con
cludes as a result of its extensive inquiry that
efforts at "speeding up" by increasing the num
ber of working hours have failed. Undue fatigue
induced by longer hours of toil lessens the capa
bilities of the worker, increases the danger about
the plants and lowers the output. The com
mission recommends the shorter workday, no
overtime and one full day of rest in everv seven.
This latter is imperative for skilled workers and
those in higher control, such as superintendents
and foremen.. If the United States is to profit
by the experience of its allies in other ways, it
may as well take this lesson, too. and be the
Thev crop reporting bureau strikes the right
note at last . Throwing out official' scares may
be excused as a stimulus for increased cultivation,
but boosting accomplishes more than knocking.
The June summary carries an abundance of cheer
and marks the route for future reports.
Suppose it were the fire department instead
of the police department being run through se
cret orders given subordinates regardless of the
fire chief, what results could be expected and how
long would the people of Omaha stand for it?
In view of the fact that I had gone through all
the grades right in the same school building, ad
mission to the high school meantfor me merely
going up, or rather coming down to the second
floor, only part of which at that time was required
for high school purposes. My class was the larg
est in number that had ever been promoted out
of the eighth grade in Omaha. At that time
(1883). the enrollment of the entire high school,
with its course covering tour years, was less than
140, or to be precise, exactly
The main assembly room, which was on the
southeast side of the building, sufficed to hold all
of us during study hours, the preference in seat
selection being given to those of the higher
classes. There was quite high raised platform
recessed into the wall on the west side facing the
seats between which the aisles ran east and west.
A commodious coat room on the north opened
also into the main hall. While on the west were
a small recitation room, a long narrow space con
taining a few tables and chairs and some zoologi
cal specimens preserved in alcohol, and another
small room which served as an office for the prin
cipal, frequently ornamented with boys and girls
waiting to be called on the carpet or to oner ex
cuses. The seniors, to whom we freshies looked
up with intense awe, were permitted by special
dispensation to study in the narrow space referred
to, or rather to pretend to study while in reality
holding a social'session. There were two or three
recitation rooms, larsre and small, on the same
floor, available tor the nigh school.
Year by year the number of high school pupils
steadily and rapidly increased. crowding out the
grade rooms one 'after another, until the high
school had the whole second floor and then an
nexed the third, and finally took the whole build.
ing. The total enrollment, as I said, when I went
into the high school was 139. In 1887, when I
graduated, four years later, it had mounted to 372.
The graduates of the same year that I had entered
the high school consisted of seven girls, the class
of 1884 counted up ten members, the class of 1883
twenty members, the class of 1886 eighteen mem
bers, and my class of 1887 numbered thirty.
Student life during our high school days was
varied and vigorous. The school was not yet so
large as to succumb to the temptation to clique,
although there were, of course, groups that found
mutual pleasure in congenial diversions. The di
visions were more largely along class lines,, due
to longer acquaintance and more intimate contact,
but at the same time there were cross-cuts drawn
in altogether different directions. Even in my
first year I was permitted to associate with some
of the seniors and to participate in their social af
fairs, perhaps because of my youthfulness. I had
gone into the high school in knee pants in fact.
did not acquire my first full length trousers until
my third year and my chief competitor in
dimlnutiveness was a classmate named Harry
Bonner, who was a little older, a little larger and
wore long oants. In the grades all the children
had been called by their first names, and the sup
posed metamorphosis worked by entrance into the
nich school was to be addressed as "Mr. Smith"
or "Miss Jones." I was denied this privilege as
it it did not belong to me until one day l arose tn
my might with an indignant protest to one of the
offending teachers, after which the objectionable
discrimination was abated.
In those early school days we observed the
various holidays in the usual way. For Arbor
day. for example, the school board furnished sap
ling trees which members of the graduating class
were permitted to set out on the south side of the
campus to grow into tall, living monuments to
the prowess of the students and furnish senti
mental ties that would bind them forever, to the
old school. In my turn I put out one of these
trees, alonor with mv classmates, hut if anv one
of the trees survived, or ever lived any length of
time, it is not recorded. We had our Christmas
entertainments and class plays. I remember one
tried out in German, and on one occasion the boys
put on a minstrel show with real burnt cork that
wouldn t come oft tor a long time thereafter.
In the early years when the whole school was
assembled in the large audience room every morn
ing, the day was started with a brief musical or
literary number. One of the students would Dlay
a piece on the piano, or recite a short poem and
then we would go on with our lessons. Assign
ment on this program was supposed to be recog
nition of merit, though seldom welcomed as such.

The commencement of 1887 was, it goes with
out saying, a great gala event. There were thirty
of us to receive our diplomas, so many that for
the first time it became necessary to select spokes,
men for the class for places on the program in
stead of giving every one a part Three boys
managed to get through the competition with
class records and commencement orations that
would pass muster, the girls supplying the rest of
the entertainment. It is interesting to note the
after careers of the rising generation reflected in
the subjects. Wallace Broatch, who later went to
Yale, and then to West Point and into the army,
talked about "The American Army." Augustus
Detwiler, who studied at Johns Hopkins and went
through the medical school of the University of
Pennsylvania to become a practicing physician,
delved deep into "The Genus Homo, while 1,

WE ARE OPPOSED TO WAR
We Don't Want to Fight
But, By Jingo, If We Do
We Have Got the Men
We Have Got the Ships
We Have Got the Money, Too
The people throughout the United States have contributed
liberally to the Red Cross and other such institutions that have for
their purpose extending aid to the boys in the trenches.
Citizens buying Liberty Bonds are not contributing along
philanthropic lines. They are simply investing their money where
it is absolutely safe, bringing them splendid returns for their
THE WOODMEN OF THE WORLD, as a Society, purchased
$250,000 in Liberty Bonds. The employes purchased $14,000 and
Omaha Seymour Camp No. 16 purchased $1,000.
We recommend this investment for every man, woman and
child. Buy a Liberty Bond. If you haven't got the cash, pay
$1 per week.
If you haven't or have got a brother or son fighting in the
trenches, or who may be called to fight in the trenches, remem
ber he may be wounded. He may cry for someone to staunch the
life's blood welling from his wounds. Shall his cries be in vain? .
They will be unless you contribute and assist the Red Cross in
every way possible to carry on the splendid work they have under
taken during this bloody conflict.
THE WOODMEN OF THE WORLD is issuing Life Insurance
policies on the lives of the men who go m the trenches or who
stay at home.
