More Precincts Are to Be Added So Women Can Vote Election Commissioner Moorhead submitted to the city commissioners a tentative plan or redistricting greater Omaha into twelve wards. Mr. Moorhead's proposal is to have the wards divided by main thorough fares, which would eliminate, for in stance, the present division of some wards by Dodge street. It is pro posed to have the Third ward bounded by Charles and Dodge streets, from the river to Thirteenth street. The new ward division is neces sary on account of the recent annexe ation of Benson and Florence.

Printer's "Devil" on The Bee Now One of Uncle Sam's Fighting Tars From printer's devil to a bluejacket has proven such a transformation to George Shaw that he has written his brother, Earl Shaw, 4708 North Twenty-ninth sfteet, that he "wouldn't change back to his old life for the world." "We have so many goods things to eat we can't hardly wait from one mess call to another. They treat us fine. We drill hard, but that's all forgotten when we take a plunge in the evening and listen to a band con cert." George Shaw enlisted as an ap prentice seaman at the Omaha navy recruiting station May 7 and was sent to Newport News training station May 28. With him went William Conkling, 3036 Meredith avenue, a boyhood chum. The former "printer's devil" had a hankering to join the navy since he was IS years old. His brother re fused to give his consent until re cently, when the lad became insistent. His parents have been .dead for a number of years. He is 19 years old. Before enlisting George Shaw was employed in the composing room of The Omaha Bee. In the picture he is shown beside the steering wheel of an old "man-o-war." Harry Palmer Has an Appendicitis Operation Harry Palmer, young Omaha at torney, was operated on for appen dicitis at Immanuel hospital Wednes day. He is reported to be getting along satisfactorily. Owing to his illness the regular meeting of the Noonday club, of which he is a prom inent member, was omitted Thurs day. , WHIPPERMAN LAID UP BY MER BITE Cement Man Halted in Hia Work of Recruiting Com pany for the Sixth Nebraska. A bite on the ankle by a black spider June 9 has disabled Frank Whipperman, president of the Omaha Concrete Stone company and presi dent of the Mid-West Cement Users' association, so that he has been unable to be at his plant for a number of days. He is still confined to his home, with his ankle and leg badly swollen, and within the last few days the swell ing has moved into the arms, so that his arms and hands are swollen to double their normal sie. Mr. Whip perman's physician says he is making some, headway, however, and that he will probably make a steady recovery now. Mr. Whipperman did not know when he was bitten. He noticed a growing pain in the ankle after he had been mowing the lawn. When this grew so severe that it was very annoying he consult the doctor. "There is a hole here where some thing bit you," said the doctor. "Have you been bitten by a black spider?" Whipperman did not know that he had. The doctor told him there is a large black spider with two red spots on it, which is about the only spider really poisonous in this sec tion. The next day one of Whipperman's sons killed two black spiders as big as the end of a man's thumb. Each had two red spots on it. They had gained entrance to the house some way, and Mr. Whipperman believes they came in with the bedding and mattresses which had been put on the grass for an airing during the recent housecleaning activities at the Whip perman home. Mr. Whipperman, who is a Spanish war veteran, was organizing a com pany for the Sixth Nebraka regiment of infantry. His present misfortune has greatly delayed his activities in this line, as he has been unable to hustle for more recruits. Instead of hustling recruits he is compelled to spend whole days in the doctor's office swathed in hot packs to eliminate the poison from his system.
