ing, N. M., Sept. 14. (Special.) I'm
a little bit under. the weather, this
morning, but in great trim to reel off
enough news to till the Sunday maga
zine section if necessary. There is
so much to write about that it's a
' toss-up on what subject to start
The "main event" in this big arena
happened Tuesday,1 September 11,
191. when the boys from the home

mess shact: and received their thirty

When the "pay call" sounded
immediately - after- reveille, wild
shrieks, hoarse and ear-splitting yells
rent the air and the confusion of
voices gave the "layman" the impres

There was a rush for the company
street to get through with the set
ting up exercises, and immediately
upon its demise came a general clean
ing up of rifles, quarters and per
sons. Shining faces and shining shoes
emerged from out the dust, and from
out the very . atmosphere came
pressed trousers, O. D. shirts, clean
leggings and black ties. When some
one yelled, "Line up for chow," all
entered the mess hall, but few par
took of the wholesome ; breakfast
spread out before them, Appetites
wer gone for oatmeal,, canteloupe.

came visions of "steaks, potatoes

About 9:30 a. m. the heaping piles
of yellow and greenbacks, silver and
' half dollars began their swift descent
and at noontime approximately 2,000
men were treading on air and all that
remained was a bare pine board table
that seemed to carry a sad and de
. jected look. " ' ' &
Then followed a rush to the post
office and registered letters, money
; orders and deposits became the gen
eral order of the day, for it's the folks
at home that the khaki-clad -boy
thinks of first, especially those with
dependents. . '
Suffice 'tis to say that at least for
the next fifteen days or more
"Sammy" will be living "the lift of

SKINNED ALIVE SPUDS BY THOUSANDS GO UNDER

will turn in the most enviable record
of the camp. However, time will tell.
Now a ivord for the sanitation and
the boys of the sanitary corps. A
word of approval will not be amiss.
Under the supervision of Major J: M.
Birkner the boys are sure hustlers
and Lieutenants Parks and Reeves
certainly deserve all the credit that
can be given to them for the manner
in which they handle their alloted
tasks. , - ' , .
, The incinerators fronting the regi
mental streets dispose of the garbage
quickly and cleanly. The mess halls,
kitchen utensils, pots, pans and quart
ers are inspected daily in a way that
denotes thoroughness and everything
is kept spick and span. ,,
To the Hebrew folks at home let
me State that during the holy days'
period, their boys will be provided
with a suitable house of worship and
they will receive their furloughs for
a period of three days. . ; .

that fact I'm getting up enough nerve
to ask some kind donatoV for a com

girls of the Beaton Drug company
for getting the post card shower to

appreciate it and we take this means
of letting them know it

of the ministerial fraternity, not only
in that state, but in the country. ,
Extraordinary inducements were
held out to persuade him to leave

been stationed for nine years. This
is of itself an indication of his abili

fulness. When he went to Fort Dodge nine
years ago, a youthful clergyman with
small experience, the' First Methodist
church there was a small, out-grown
building. In a short time he "infused
such vitality and enthusiasm into his
parish that a. beautiful new building
and parsonage was planned, and these,
which called for an outlay of $120,000,
now stand as a monument to his
vision and executive ability.
He is singularly gifted spiritually,
is an eloquent speaker as well as a
splendid executive. -.His personality
attracts friends wherever he goes and
his unselfish spirit of patriotism has
made him a leading figure in war work
at Fort Dodge.
In Harmony With Labor.
If his Work in Fort Dodge be taken
as an example, Rev. Mr. Spence soon
will become a dominant figure in the
philanthropic and patriotic activities

, The committee in, charge of selling
the second issue of Liberty bonds in
Omaha held a . preliminary ; meeting
at the ' Commercial club and took
steps itpportant "' toward boosting
Omaha's subscription to this issue.
. O. T. Eastman, umanager of the
Omaha branch of -the Federal Re
serve bank, brought word that ( the
government is preparing to give much
greater assistance, to the bond solici
tors than it did in the first campaign.
"Ten posters of various sizes wil!
be shipped out' next week from, the
printing .offices, he said. "All are
boosters for the bonds. Another ad
vertising feature - will be; 1,000,000
stickers - for Nebraska, each- SH6
inches in size, intended. sarlicularijf
for automobile windshields. Libert
bond buttons of a, new design will be
given to buyers of the second issue
of bonds. A number of speeches on
the bonds Will be sent out. v ..
' To Bear 4 Per Cent - .
The second issue of bonds is to be
for $3,000,000,000, and is' to bear 4
per cent, according to the most reli
able advices received by the commit;
tee. There is this difference, however,
that the percent bonds are non
taxable, while the 4 per cent bonds
will be subject to income taxes. iThe
reason for the delay in supplying the
first issue bonds to subscribers was
mentioned; namely, the colossal work
of Sprinting them. - Most of these
bonds were for small amounts. It
was stated that the bonds for this
federal reserve district alone would
amount to twenty-six big truck loads.
W. E. Rhoades is chaiimah of the
committee, succeeding T. C Byrne,
who was chairman of the Omaha
committee, but is now chairman of. the
state Liberty bond committee. John
L. Kennedy , was elected vice chair
man. Most of -the members of the
first committee will serve on the sec
ond also. v v
To Place Subscriptions Here.
It was voted to appoint a commit
tee to Tall on' the corporations and
get them to place their Liberty bond
subscriptions in Omaha instead of in
the east, as many of them did on the
first bond campaign. On 'suggestion
of Scoutmaster English,-$100 was
voted to buy medals for Boy Scouts
who distinguish themelves in selling
bonds. It was decided also tb'getan,
officer from each bank, if possible to
serve on the committee.
The first Liberty bonds are to be
delivered to subscribers September
26 and the drive for the second issue
is to begin October 1..
Report of Light Frosts ,
Does Not Affect Market
- -Reports of light frosts over por
tions of, the corn belt of Iowa and
Illinois reached the Omaha Grain ex
change, but it was asserted that they
were not responsible for the advance
of 4 tov6 cents a bushel. It was attrib
uted to the strong demand and the
fact that there were buyers for all
the cash offerings. Prices were $1.97
to $2.03 a bushel, with forty-six car
loads on the market.
