Rejected as a Soldier, He Goes to
France Anyway in Y. M. C. A. Work
He wanted Uncle Sam to place the
sword in his hand that is what Fred
B. Walrath wanted. He tried every
way to get his big Uncle Samuel to
accept him in the capacity of an of
ficer of the line, for he is a born mili
tary man. But the army thought him
a little too young.
Then he tried to get into the Red
Cross organization in a position of
importance, but this did not material
ize just as ne had hoped. He began
to wonder if he ever would get to
France in any capacity at all.
The other day he was playing golf
with Rev. Titus Lowe, who has re
cently been appointed for Young
Men's Christian association field work
"When you go to France let me
know," said the boy, "and I'll go
Knowing the boy's capacity for
work, the Rev. Mr. Lowe immediately
wired Washington and soon a tele
gram came through appointing young
Walrath as the Young Men's Chris
tian association secretary for field
service and assigning him to France.
He is now a happy lad not as
happy as if Uncle Sam had let him
lead a company of Sammies over a
trench but happy just the same. He
is to leave Omaha the evening ot Uc-
tober 9. He will join Titus Lowe inythat a trifle young. He was only 19
iTTiihmii M . .in -ff-
New York and together the two will
go to France to take care of the Sam
mies in camp as only the Young
Men's Christian association knows
how to take care of them.
Fred B. Walrath is a son of C. H.
Walrath of Omaha. He is a grad
uate of the Omaha Hish school. He
was captain of a company of cadets in
the high school, and at the University
of Nebraska, where he is now en
rolled, he is first sergeant of a com
pany and in line for a commission in
the cadet battalion.
Even his father admits the boy al
ways had the ' military bug," and says
the lad was greatly disappointed when
he could not be admitted to the offi
cers' reserve corps training camp at
Fort Snelling. He is only 20 years
old, and the War department thought
when he applied to be admitted to the
Fort Snelling training camp. He was
rejected on account of youth, and
now that he has reached his twen
tieth birthday, the training camps
have raised the age limit and are
looking for older and more mature
men as officers to lead the American
forces in the fields.
In France young Walrath expects
to be closely associated with Dr.
Lowe in the Young Men's Christian
association work. He had consider
able experience in this line of work
in Nebraska, and according to Dr.
Lowe is highly qualified to perform
the service that will be required of
him in the field. He is a good mixer,
gets along well with men in fact he
is a man's man and his friends are
looking for good work from him.
Mothers' Day Feature at
The Omaha City Mission
Thursday was gala day at the
Omaha City Mission for the mothers
who attend there, many of whom are
charter members and having attended
since Its organization fifteen years
ago. Many were made happy, as they
had finished their work, and were
permitted to take the garments home.
After the devotional exercises the
mothers were invited to a long table,
where they partook of a luncheon pre
pared by some of Omaha's most
prominent philanthropic women.
One little frail, mother, a widow
with eight children, brought three lit
tle ones under school Age. Children
played while the mothers sewed and
chatted with neighbor' and friends.
These meetings, to which all moth
ers are welcome, are held every Thurs
day at 2 o'clock. Many mothers come
from 1 to 2. to consult with Dr. New
ell Jones about their children.
Small Fines Given for
Violating the Reed Law
Mrs. Mary Such pleaded guilty before-Federal
Jtfdge "Woodrough' to
violation -of the Reed amendment and
was . fined $25. She brought liquor
here from St. Joseph.
James Noonan, a young bellboy,
was fined $5 when he pleaded guilty
to selling liquor to a soldier in uni
form. Thirty-Nine Days in Jail
For Failure to Register
Harry Walters pleaded guilty to
failing to register for the selective
draft and was sentenced by Federal
Judge Woodrough to thirty-nine days
in jail, dating from August 25. The
sentence was made thirty-nine days
so that Walters will be released in
time to go with the next contingent

NEW APARTMENTS '
Splendid Apartment Building is
of Beautif ' Architecture and
Has All the Modern Con-
The St. Regis apartments at Thirty
seventh and Jones streets, the heart of
one of Omaha's best residence dis
tricts, are nearing completion. A large
list of tenants are waiting for the
time when it will open.
The old Spanish renaissance style
of architecture shows up to its very
best advantage and conforms in - a
most artistic way with the jnany
beautiful homes which surround.it.
From the time one first sees its
beautiful front court, the upper .por
tion being divided from the lower by
a beautifully carved balustrade with
broad steps in the center until he
steps in the rear court yard 'with its
driveways and garage, he Cannot but
be struck with each successive step,
by the many beautiful details of the
building, by the immense rooms, all
well lighted,'-and by the kitchens,
whose equipment of stoves and cup
boards arid refrigerators and modern
plumbing, innovations conclusively
mark this as Omaha's very finest and
very best. All apartments in the St.
Regis have baths and many have three
baths and rooms for servants separ
ated from the suites themselves.
There is also an immense cafe which
has a modern hotel kitchen and din
ing roonr,. so that the lady who lives
in the St.; Rcg.9 may y cook' in her
apartment if she wishes; but she
doesn't have to if she doesn't
want to. The servant problem will
not necessarily embarrass her. She
can have all her foods prepared in the
cafe kitchen and served in her priv
ate dining room if she wishes. The
cafe will be run so as to attract out
side as well as inside patronage, , ,
