Universal Suffrage for
First Time in Russia
Petrograd (Via London), June 10.
Elections to thr district and municipal
councils began here today. For the
first time in Russian history universal
suffrage was m operation.
SUFFRAGISTS AT WAR
Friends of Limited Franchise
Bill Indignant Because Antis
Insist on Invoking Pop
x ular Vote.
The actual starting of the referen
dum petitions has precipitated sharp
shooting between the forces of women
who are to fight out this campaign.
The suffragists, who wre highly
elated over legislative enactment of
their limited suffrage bill, are now ex
pressing great indignation that their
opponents should insist on invoking
a popular vote, and are suggesting
that the antis would do better to de
vote themselves to war work than to
put obstacles in the way of the wom
en seeking the franchise.
Back at this onslaught comes the
Nebraska Association Opposed to
Woman Suffrage, with this answer,
issued as an official pronouncement:
"The fact that we have desided to
ask for a referendum upon the suf
frage bill appears to have called forth
the wrath of the suffragists. We hear
such statements as "When the Ne
braska women are engaged in patriotic
tasks, etc., the antis put up their
light to deny these women a voice in
public affairs. Who are the patriotic
women of Nebraska? Surely not the
"When war was declared in August.
1914 the Red Cross called for funds
and, responding to the call, a small
band of anti-suffragists collected over
$4,300 .dollars in less than ten days
and sent it the American Red Cross.
The Franco-Belgian Relief society
(now the War Relief) was founded in
1914 by anti-suffragists, and in every
patriotic and humane movement you
will find, the 'antis' giving unselfishly
of their time and money. They do not
work as 'antis,' but as loyal, patriotic
women. No blare of trumpets accom
panies their work. It is done quietly
"The state president of the Suf
frage society was publicly quoted last
week as follows: 'But while suffrage
members stand ready patriotically to
help in every good work, they should
not forget that national woman suf
frage is the fundamental principle un
derlying all that they do.1 The 'antis'
ask no reward for service to coun
try. It is an insult to the majority of
the good women of Nebraska to even
"Why are the suffragists so dis
turbed over the proposed referendum?
Is it because of the statement made
recently by the official suffrage organ
that 'legislatures are more sensitive to
party dictation, party political debts
and business interests than are the
voters?' We believe that the public
can be depended upon to draw a con
trast between the actions of the anti
suffragists and those patriots who are
now picketing the White House."
The latest from the suffragists is a
warning issued by Mrs. Barkley, pres
ident of the State, Suffrage associa
ton, admonishing vters against sign
ing the petitions "without proper in
quiry." Anderson Severely Hurt
In Automobile Collision
A slipper that slipped from the
brakes caused the automobile driven
by Mrs. Slay McAdams to collide
with a Serman avenue street car last
night at 7:30 o'clock.
Mrs. McAdams and two occupants,
Mrs." Joseph Lowe, 801 North First
street, who owns the automobile, and
C. E. Anderson, Twenty-eighth and
Lincoln boulevard, were thrown clear
of the car.
Mrs. McAdams suffered a strained
back and Mrs. Lowe escaped unin
jured. Both were able to proceed
home. C. E. Anderson was most se
verely injured, sustaining lacerations
about the face and scalp and a frac
tured nose. He was taken to the
Lord Lister hospital, where his
wounds were dressed by Dr. A. L.
The machine was going east on
Capitol avenue, when a northbound
car crossed in front of them at Four

diately pressed the brakes, but her
foot slipped off before they responded.

Omaha Sends Out 262
Sailors in Single Week
Omaha led the central division for
the week ending June 7 in the num
ber of "navy enlistments, as compared
to its population.
In actual number of enlistments
Omaha ranked third with a total of

sas City, Minneapolis, Milwaukee,
Cincinnati, Detroit and Indianapolis.
So far 1,332 men have enlisted from
the Omaha recruiting station, 768 less
than the final number of 2,000 alloted
to this territory. ,
Films Will Show Real
Life at Great Lakes
Life as it really is at navy training
stations will be shown in movies each

Lieutenant Waddell and Ensign
Rayley have made arrangements to
throw scenes from the Great Lakes
training station between 8:30 and 10
o'clock on a screen on the Rose

RED CROSS DRIVE
Chairman Wattles Says Omaha
Will Have Little Trouble
in Raising Its Share of
Omaha's share of the $100,000,000
fund to be raised during National
Red Cross week, June 18 to 25. is set
at $250,000 by the Council of Na
tional Defense. Although Omaha's
quota to he national fund amounts
to more than $1 each for every man,
woman and child in the corporate
limits of the city, Chairman G. W.
Wattles of the finance committee is
confident of he success of the cam
paign. Mr. Wattles already has received
several subscriptions totaling more
than $5,000 toward the Red Cross
Want Small Subscriptions.
"We want the big subscriptions, but
the fact that this is a popular move
ment and the small subscription from
the individual is just as highly prized
as the large one from the man or
business house which can afford to
give heavily, I shall be satisfied bet
ter if my team turns in as its share
25,000 $1 subscriptions than five for
$5,000 each, because we want to make
it a work of the people as a whole,"
said a member of the committee.
The twelve captains of teams ap
pointed are selecting their assistants
and in a few days will sart the drive.
Omaha Is Paying Its
Grocery Bill Promptly
People are paying their grocery ac
counts more promptly since the Re
tail Grocers' association started a
campaign of newspaper advertising a
few weeks ago, urging the customers
to pay more promptly.
Regarding this J. J. Cameron, sec
retary of the 'association, has the fol
lowing to say: "We got such satis
factory results that the grocers now
want to create a separate fund to
carry on this work. They want to
educate the consumers in various
ways for the consumers' own benefit
as well as for the grocer. There is
no doubt that a more friendly co-operation
between the grocer and his
customer would be a great benefit to
both. Consequently, in order to
create sentiment in favor of economy
and confidence the columns of the
daily papers will be used for this pur
pose. However, it costs considerable
money to have this done. The small
dues paid in by the members is not
sufficient to pay this expense, conse
quently, at our last official board
meeting, it was decided to request all
members to send in their checks, for
$3 each, to the secretary's office for
this purpose. Not only the members
of the association should contribute
to the fund, every grocer in Omaha
should pay his share, as they all get
the benefit." '
Registration Does Not
Prevent Navy Enlistment
Ensign Rayley wishes to call atten
tion to the mistaken opinion of many
persons that men who have registered
cannot enlist in the navy.
"They can enlist up to the time
thev are drafted. Then their choice
of service ecases," the navy officer
He called attention to the fact that
the navy would not be benefited by
the draft, but must depend for re
cruits entirely on volunteer enlist
ments. Crowd Sees Gas Range

SAYS RUSSIA WILL
Prof. F, Pisecky of Bohemia
Declares That Russia Will
Round To All
Prof. F. Pisecky, from the Institute
of Pedagogy of Jicin, Bohemia, a
former oliicer in the reserve in the
Austrian army, who has spent three
months on the Russian front, where
he was wounded and then voluntarily
crossed into the Russian lines, spoke
here last night and this afternoon he
speaks at the Tel Jed Sokol hall.
He was drafted into the Austrian
army against his will, same as thou
sands of his countrymen were, and
took the first opportunity to escape
and help the allies. After twenty
months spent in detention camp, he
enlisted in the Serbian volunteei
division at Odessa, as a lieutenant.
Shortly afterwards he was assigned
to the Serbian legation at Petrograd.
to take part in the political propa
ganda for Bohemian independence.
In December, 1916, he was sent to
England with reports to the Bohem
ian leader, Prof. Masaryk, about the
situation in Russia. Upon his return
to Russia he witnessed the Russian
revolution and now in his present
tour his main purpose will be to
describe the revolution in his lectures
and help the Bohemian independence
movement in this country.
His stay in Russia gave him a thor
ough insight into the conditions pre
vailing there and he is absolutely con
vinced that Russia will come out of
the present turmoil to the greatest
satisfaction of the allies.
Russia Will Not Quit.
"Russians are an honorable people
and will not forsake the allies, ' said
Prof. Pisecky, "they are a Slavonic
