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
The new ward division is neces
sary on account of the recent annexe
ation of Benson and Florence.
On account of women, voting at the
rext election it will be necessary to
add thirty-five voting precincts.
There are now 106 precincts. The
law requires that voting precincts
shall be created on the basis of the
voting population, or one voting place
for each 300 voters.

"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."

Cement Man Halted in Hia
Work of Recruiting Com
pany for the Sixth
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
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.
