Ballard Dunn of Union Pacific
Elected Chairman of the
Local Branch of Rail
ro'ad War Board.
The Omaha branch of the railroad
war board of the Council on National
Defense has perfected its temporary
organization by the election of Bal
lard Dunn of the Union Pacific as
chainman. Committees to take up the
work will be named by the chairman
it a meeting to be held soon.
The meeting at which the local
branch of the railroad war board or
ganized was held this morning and
was attended by representatives of all
roads centering in Omaha. There
was no delay in getting busy and it
was decided to get in line to co-operate
with the parent board in every
While the Omaha branch of the
board will originate from time to time,
its principal aim will be to assist the
Council on National Defense in work
ing out transportation problems, both
freight and passenger. The board also
. vjll co-operate with the Nebraska
public welfare commission in conser
vation in the handling of grain, food
stuffsjand fuel, offering, and accepting
suggestions on all matters coming
within the scope of its powers.
Members of the local board will
immediately inaugurate a campaign
that will have for its purpose the con
servation of railroad equipment, espe
cially freight and coal cars. It will
get in touch with shippers of Ne
braska and will urge upon them the
necessity of loading cars to capac
ity in the shipment of all commodities.
It will also urge that there be as little
delay as possible in handling cars and
impress the importance of preventing
accumulation at points where they
ere not needed.
Ask Anyone Who Has Used It.
There are families who always aim
to keep a bottle of Chamberlain's
- Colic and Diarrhoea Remedy in the
house for use in case it is needed and
find that it is not only a good invest
ment, but saves them no end of suf
fering. As to its reliability, ask any
one who has used it. Advertisement.

Exemption boards urge drafted men
notified to appear for examination on
the first jll to come early and avoid
the rush.
Men who appear voluntarily before
any of the boards before examination
days will be given the physical test,
board chairmen announce.
The last of the week and the first
few Says of next week are expected
to witness a rush that will tax the
facilities of the six exemption boards
in Douglas county.
All exemption boards would rather
have drafted men appear for exami
nations as early as possible instead
of waiting until the last minute, when
physicians will be required to work
day and night in order Jo keep up
with the rush. -
Figures of the six exemption boards
show the bulk of men examined thus
far are married.
Only a few single men have ap
peared. Most married men havi announced
they will file claims for exemption.
Nearly All Married.
"From the talk of the men exam
ined in our district it would appear
as if most Omahans between 21 and
31 years old are married and have
large families," declared Acting
County Judge Sundblad, chairman of
the Fourth district board.
"I've heard so much about 'poor,
dependent wives,' that I've begun to
thing a lot of the young married wo
men are cripples.
"From the talk of some of these
young married 'bucks' one would de
duct they are burning both ends of
the candle and toiling constantly in
an effort to keep a few crusts of
bread in the family larders.
"It looks as if, should one of these
married men cease work for even a
day, their wives would be thrown into
a cold world to starve."
In the Fourth district, however,
several men were exahiined today
who said they would not claim ex
emption. All types of men appear before
boards for examination. Huskies, who
look as if they could eat three Ger
mans every morning before break
fast, announce they will claim ex
emption, while human wrecks, who
look as if a stiff Flanders wind would
blow them away, seen anxious to
fight. !
Heavyweight Examined.
A 350-pound man was examined by
the Fourth district physician Wednes
day. He is six feet, two 'inches tall
and towers over the man of ordinary
This individual is an ex-navy man
and was intensely pleased when he
was drafted. He had failed to ob
tain entrance to the navy or army,
but had a "hunch" maybe the draft
boards would take him.
"He would make good material, in
my opinion," said Acting County
Judge Sunblad, "but his weight will
keep him out of the draft army. I
felt sorry for the fellow. He wanted
to get in so badly."
The Sixth, taking in most of the
men from the rural districts, although.
handicapped with only one doctor, is
working hard and examining the men
as fast as they come in.
Most of the men from this district
are in fine physical condition, but a
good share will claim exemption be
cause of marriage.
The slacker found in the Benson
district was registered Wednesday
jous: photo
and will be put in the place of the first
exempted man. Dr. Reed, chairman of
the district said,: "We will find a place
for this man if we have to form a new
regiment to accommodate him."
Third Starts Late.
The Third district is probably the'
largest district and no examinations
have been given here at all. A re
quest has been filed with the governor
for four additional doctors so that the
work can be put through faster, as
about 170 men must be examined each
"The statement is not true," said W.
G. Ure of the First district, that the
men are claiming exemptions as a
general thing. "A large number of
the men in this district are anxious
to fight."
"One fellow was rejected because
he had only two teeth in his upper
jaw. Why, the fellow was nearly
heart broken."
Another remarked: "I want to get
into this quick. No one is dependent
on me and if the United States won't
let me fight I am going to join the
About 60 per cent of the men ex
amined in the Fifth district will ask
exemption, according to C. W. Fos
tei chairman of the district. At
least they have asked for papers to
"We will examine men tonight at
the army building," said Mr. Foster.
"They can get in touch with me at
the court house or by calling Doug
las 1267.
"We find many things to encourage
us as the examinations proceed. 1
received a letter today from an Oma
ha man who has moved to Idaho. He
says he will not claim exemption on
any ground, but is anxious to fight.
He writes to find how he may be
transferred to the Idaho district that
he may get in without delay."

Our Third Annual August
Affords Saving Possibilities of 20 to 33
Under Prices Later This Fall
THE sole reason for a great fur sale in August is the possibility of large econo
mies and that reason justifies this very extraordinary offering.
Months of planning and preparation have been given
to this sale co-operation with leading furriers familiar
with the large disposal of fine furs which we have made
through previous summer sales.
We commend the offering as an exhibition of particu
larly high grade, fashionable furs, as well as an oppor
tunity for economy. , '
, Every piece represented had to be proved worthy of
the Burgess-Nash guarantee of quality, to insure the en
tire satisfaction of every customer. ; Therefore, you may
be sure that every fur piece sold will be exactly as rep
resented, and - '
Back of Every Piece of Fur Sold Is the Burgess-Nash
Guarantee of Quality, Authenticity of Style, and Thor
oughly Satisfactory Wear.
Furs Stored Till Nov. 1
Should you desire, you may make your selection and we will . carefully store
them for you until November 1, upon payment of only 25 per cent of their value.
You thus not only secure first choice from our large stocks, but take advantage of
these -extraordinarily low prices, without the necessity of making full payment for
the furs until they are actually needed. , ' '

Close Deals at Price
of $1.03 Per

maximum price.
