Young and Older Wili Meet
Monday Night at Happy
Hollow Club to Talk
Old Times.
Th Omaha High School Alumni
association will hold its annual re
union at the Happy Hollow club next
Monday evening.
That item may not excite you very
much. But, as there are. a few thous
and members of the association, it
isn't inappropriate to have a little
write-up of it in this column, written
by an alumnus and in this paper, pub
lished and edited by an alumnus.
We are a pretty high-brow associa
tion, by Zeus I (You see we use classi
cal exclamations.) We are the "non
plus ultra." (Latin words.) We
alumni use the ancient Latin quite a
bit. We know how to pronounce "e
pluribus unum" and all those words.
We are "alumni," you see. Ordinary
people would call themselves gradu
ate, but we use the Latin "alumni"
from the verb "alcre" meaning "to
The girls we call "alumnae, which
is the feminine of "alumni" as you
would know if you understood "Latin
like we do.
Knows His Latin.
We call the Omaha High school
"-.Im mstir" which means "dear
mother," as you would know if you
' unaersioou idim uc vc uv.
We know lots of other words, too,
like "sine die" and "Gallia est omnis
divisa in partes tres." Of course, all
this high knowledge has been secured
at the cost of burning the. midnight
oil. We, while our companions slept,
were toiling upward in the night. We
also know Greek. Oh, my, yes I Don t
.you wish you were an alumnus?
The association was organized in
1908. All graduates of the Omaha
High school are deemed members of
the association. This year, for the
first time, all the high schools of
Greater Omaha are united in the as
sociation. Joins Young and Old.
The annual reunion is quite an af
fair. It brings together giddy young
graduates of the lf.test class and
graduates of forty years ago. all with
a common interest and a common
"alma mater," the good old "O. H.
William L. Randall is president this
year. Members of the association
are today professional and business
men of the city and of other cities.
They are found in legislative bodies
and the halls of congress. Some of
them are-teaching ia..the institution
from which they graduated. They are
a company of useful citizens of which
one may well be proud. And dear old
"alma mater" up on the hill is still
turning out others who are prepared
jlive useful and honored lives.
Business First.
The annual reunion is an informal
affair which begins with a business
meeting and continues with dancing
and visiting. The high school "yell"
apt to be heard. Groups gather
and compare notes and tell what
teachers were there when they were
there, and so on. And the orchestra
plays and alumni and alumnae whirl
in the merry dance.
Half a buck (Xo, no, this is an un
seemly expression for an alutanus to
employ. Let ns say "fifty cents").
Fifty cents admits to all. You see,
alumni, though ve,ry brainy, indeed,
are not snobbish.
Tickets are on sale at the Sherman
& McConnell drug stores, and the as
sociation vants to see a big attend
ance. This year's graduates are es
pecially invited. . -
THIRTY YEARS IN THE SERVICE 'The distinction of being
United State marine for thirty year belongs to Gunnery
Sergeant John Shea, who hat just been "read out" of the
tervice on account of old age. When a man i "read-out"
hit entire record from the date of his enlistment is publicly
proclaimed by his commanding officer, and is one of the
highest honors accorded an enlisted man.

tion of Authorities.

Fitzroberts Commission company,
South Side, arrested for failure to reg
ister for the selective draft, proved
to the federal authorities that he is
under the draft age and was discharged.

that he would not lose his position
on account of his misstatement of his
"I hupe that in all such cases the
young men will not be discharged
simply because they added a year to
their aes in order to obtain their po
silion," said I'nilcd States Marshal
plynu, "There should be just as lit
tle disturbance of business as possible
in these times and if these young men
are making good at their work 1 hope
they will be kept."
Conductor is Released.
The marshal even will co-operate
with young men in such circum
stances. He slated that if any man
has given his age incorrectly in get
ting a position and if he is in reality
outside of the draft ages such a young
man should conic to the marshal with
proof to show that he is outside the
draft ages and thus publicity will be
avoided and the young man's posi
tion will not be put in jeopardy.
Harry Kratky, a conductor for the
jireet railway company, heard that
a warrant was out for his arrest. He
came to the marshal immediately with
proof that he is less than 21 years old.
Tjvo others, Fred Bahr and Royal
Kessler, conductor and motorman, re

pany, were arrested by deputy mar
shals, but were released on their

tered. Investigation showed that they
had registered.
Others Under Age. '
Lynn Henderson, 110 Angel ave
nue, Council Bluffs, was reported for
failure to register. Investigation
showed that he is only 16 years old.
"One young man was arrested on
evidence of the age lie gave when he
joined a "booze" club in Hastings
last year. The young man showed that
he is under 21 years old. He said he
added a couple of years when he
joined the club in order to "be in"
on the drinki.
Sheriff Cain of Dakota county tele
phoned Marshal Flynn that he has
four men there subject to draft who
have not registered. Warrants were
issued for them and will be served
by Deputy Marshal Morgan.
Reichstag Legislative
Period to Be Extended
Berlin, June 1.1. (Via London,
June 14.) A further continuation of
the Reichstag legislative period is
now being taken for granted in govr
