BOY SCOUTS REPORT
Announced That Youngsters
Have Sold Over One Hundred
and Fifty Thousand Dol
lars in Bonds.
At a meeting of Rotarians yester
day, Scout Master English announced
that up to and including Tuesday,
Omaha Boy Scouts had succeeded in
disposing o $134,300 of Liberty bonds.
Slips were parsed around, on
which the Rotarians pledged pur
chases of the bonds at once. These
pledges totaled $14,550.
. "Defects of our School System" oc
cupied a large portion of the talk by
Dr. George D. Strayer of the Co
lumbia university at the Rotary
club's luncheon at the Fontenelle. The
doctor has been making a survey of
the Omaha schools.
"Conditions here are no better than
those that accompanied the fire at
Peabody, Mass., not long ago, when
hundreds of school children lost their
lives," said Dr. Strayer,
Placing Fire Escapes.
"Self-complacency 'was the direct
cause of that holocaust. A fire escape
reached by a window or one that
leads down over a window on which
there is no steel door, or in which
there is not wired glass, is worth lit
tle or nothing. Flames shooting out
from lower windows will never fail to
entrap those coming down. The play
ing space is also inadequate in many
school yards. I see, especially in the
congested districts, the children are
being deprived of the greatest oppor
tunity we can afford them, that of
healthful exercises, and this is far
more essential than any branch of
the course they study."
The doctor asserted that the toilet
facilities are exceptionally poor, and
that drinking fountains are in many
i Omaha Water Good.
"The water in Omaha, however, ac
cording to the very closest of chemi
cal analysis? is the best by far of any
in this country." added the doctor.
"The best investment you can make
is the money you invest in the boys
and girls of Omaha." The Rotary club
promised such support of the inten
tions of the Board of Education as
i Dr. Henry L. Akin, who leaves soon
to take up his duties at Fort Riley,
Kan., was given a Rotarian "send
off." After the expressions of well wishes
from the members of the club, he was
presented with a gold wrist watch.
New officers installed were: W. H.
Clarke, president: J. W. Welch, first
vice president; O. S. Goodrich, sec
ond vice president; Walter G. Silver,
treasurer, and Dan Johnson, secretary.
Injured by Train
Edward Lucas, 18, 1823 Spencer
street, Fourth Nebraska National
Guardsman, Company B, was run
over by Burlington train, No. 21, at
the west end of the Union Pacific
bridgeWednesday at 7:30 o'clock, and
his injuries will, in all probability,
prove fatal. Both of his legs were
crushed. He was taken to St. Cath
erine's hospital, where his left leg was
amputated below the knee. The right
leg was badly crushed below the
inkle. His condition was so weak
ened from the amputation, that it was
not believed he' could long survive.
Lucas was not on duty at the time
of the accident. He had left the camp
on the east side of the Missouri river
and with an officer's permit to cross
the bridge, he was walking west
along the side of the track. Before
he realized its presence, the train
was nearly upon him. He made a
quick effort to clear the tracks, hut
in passing over them, his foot hit a
rail, and threw him to the ground,
with his feet upon the track. Whether
he was stunned from the fall is not
known, but before he was able to
pick himself up again, the train bore
down upon him.
He was picked up and the govern
ment physician, Dr. Hall, and Major
Birkner of Fort Crook, were sum
moned and administered temporary
aid. He was immediately operated
upon at the hospital, but little hope
is held for his recovery.

Quietly Observe Golden
At their comfortable home, 1813
Binney street, Mr. .and Mrs. John W.
McCune quietly observed their golden
wedding anniversary. Three of then
four children being away, there was
no celebration of the event. How
ever, during the day and evening they
were showered with letters and tele
grams from friends, all conveying con
gratulations and wishing them years
of health and prosperity.
Mr. McCune was connected with the
Union Pacific forty-three years and
retired from active service seven
years ago. Since then he has been en
joying life, he and his wife spending
considerable of their time with their
two sons who live in Wyoming, and
a daughter, who resides at Salt Lake
City. Their fourth child, a daughter,
Miss Juliet, is a teacher in the public

until his retirement. He was one of

WOMEN TO PLAY BIG
PART IN WORLD WAR
Feminine Help Essential if Vic
tory Is to Be Won by Allies,
Says Attorney Fle-harty.
That the great world war is not a
man's contest and that woman's con
tribution ta the country is just as po
tent as man's in winning victory for
America and the allies, was the gist
of the talk by H. B. Flcharty, assis
tant city attorney, before the Woman
Voters' Conservaiion league yesterday
at the home of Mrs. A. C. Anderson.
Conservaiion of the gigantic and
heroic ideals of America is the prin
cipal work of women during the war.
"The influence of mothers in urging
their sons to answer the call to the
colors, and the correct interpretation
of their duly rests upon the con
sciences of you women,' said Mr. Fle
harty. "The atlilude and mind of the
mother is largely influential in deter
mining the ideals of the son.
"Do not teach hatred of the Ger
man people to your children. Tell
them there, is no room for hatred of
those who are subject to the imperial
government. Do not let national spirit
eclipse your vision so that the idea of
humanity means America alone. Think
in terms cf all humanity."
Must Stand for Morality.
Mrs. Rose Ohaus of the Board of
Public Welfare made an appeal to
the women for conservation of unsul
lied womanhood during the war. After
the war there must be no accusation
against American morality.
"We must profit by Europe's expe
rience. In 1915, in one British train
ing camp, there were 20,000 fathers
of illegitimate children," said the
speaker. "Our country, which is en
gaged in a righteous war, must be
free from shame and our men must
be honorable warriors."
A message was sent to Secretary
Baker asking that the rule be en
forced at all times that immorat con
ditions and saloons be abolished from
A committee will be appointed to
investigate the sale of cigarets and
the maintenance of gambling parlors
that minors visit.
The following membership commit"
tee which will boost the club was ap
pointed: Mesdames Mary E. Howe. Thor
Jorgensen, Nellie Evans, Frances Fol
lansbee and Stella Wilson.
The Board of Education gave per
mission to hold conservation meeting
in the auditoriums of school houses.
The next meeting will be a joint
session with Frances Willard chap
ter of the Women's Christian Temper
ance Union, June 27, at the home ot
Mrs. C. J. Roberts.

Omaha Fire Department
Beats Bensonites to Blaze
The advantages of metropolitan life
were demonstrated last night when
the home of Mrs. Lydia Schade, 5618
Arthur street, took fire. Two fire
companies responded to the call, one
from the neighborhood, which was
formerly known as Benson, and a
company from Dundee. Although the
Benson company is camped but a few
blocks from the scene of the alarm,
the Omaha company was the first to
arrive at the fire.
Only slight damage was done by
