"Five $5,000 subscriptions have al
ready been made by individuals tor
the Red Cross finance campaign
which begins Monday morning, and
I hope to announce fifteen more of
not less than this amount early next
week, said G. W. Wattles, chairman
of the finance committee. "I feel
certain that as soon as the big
hearted men of the community realize
the tremendous importance of this
work, the other fifteen will be forth
coming," he added.
Omaha women, who were a big fac
tor in the success of the membership
campaign, will be asked to co-operate
in the finance campaign. A woman's
auxiliary, with Mrs. Charles T.
Kountee as chairman, is being or
ganized, to assist in the work of rais
ing Omaha's quota of the Red Cross
war fund next week.
Want Women's Influence.
"It is not the intention to ask the
women to take part in the actual so
licitation of the funds, but the influ
ence of women is very great in every
community, and the auxiliary will be
able to assist materially in many ways
that will be needed in the campaign,"
laid Chairman Wattles.
All captains appointed to make the
campaign canvass are to be present
with their teams at the dinner at the
Fontenelle hotel Friday night at 6
o'clock. Individual tables have been
reserved for the teams and a definite
working basis will be established at

taken this week at the Board of Pub
lic Welfare office.
"The new method of drying food
discovered by the Agricultural depart
ment in Washington is cheaper than
the canning and all odds and ends of
vegetables and fruits which are
wasted in canning are conserved by
the drying process," said Mrs. Rose

Spinach, asparagus and beets are
being canned at the school.

Eight new electric plates have been

Railroad Attorneys See
Finish of Two-Cent Rate
While local railroad officials are of
the opinion that the decision of the
supreme court of the United States
handed down Monday in the South
Dakota case sounds the death knell
of 2-cent passenger rates, and that in
the near future 2.4 cents will be
the rule, there will be no hasty action
in applying the increased rate.
Railroad attorneys say that in all
proability Nebraska roads will con
tinue to apply the 2-cent-a-mile rate
on all intrastate business until a suit
is instituted to have the rate declared
void. They say this action may be
taken within a short time, or it may
be delayed several weeks, and per
