Say Banks Have Only Sub
scribed What They Want
to Carry for Themselves.
"This $3,000,000 subscription is only
a starter for us," said A. D. Weston,
president-elect of the Nebraska
Bankers' association which closed its
meetings here Thursday. "The banks
have subscribed only what thy want
to carry for themselves. We will
raise ten times that amount out in our
several districts before the campaign
John L. Kennedy, in his stirring
appeal tothe convention in the in
terests of the loan, pledged Omaha
to contribute one-third of any amount
raised by the rest of the state. "We
intend to make Omaha go some be
fore this campaign is over," a promi-
ennt out-state banker said..
The evening session Thursday at
the convention hall took the form of
an educational and musical entertain
ment. . )' '
Dr. George E. Condra. of the Uni
versity of Nebraska, delivered an il
lustrated lecture on the "Resources
and Industries of Nebraska," which
was highly appreciated by the repre
sentative . bankers of the state Dr.
Condra's lecture accompanied by
lantern projections showing sectional
maps and , typical . scenes illustrating
the crops and industries, the soils and
possibilities in the different sections
of the state, gave. his audience a new
insight into Nebraska's resources.
"You get an idea of the hundreds
of different branches of activity that
are going on i . this state of ours,"
one member put it.
The four West - sisters, Madge,
Vivjan, Eloise and Bell, wen encored
repeatedly, in their instrumental quar
tet selections which followed in the
"musical .; hour." A basso cantate
rendered by W. A. Haberstroth and
a soprano solo by -Mrs. C. F. Brink
nian were excellently rendered and
highly "appreciated by the visitors.
; The privileges of all the -Omaha
clubs "we're extended to the visitors
and many' took advantage of the en
tentainment committee's invitation
for a round or two at golf at the links
of the; country clubs of the city dur

posed Unintentional Mur
. der of Child.
Cambridge, Mass., Oct. 11. Joseph
Wakelein, of - Melrose, ,was tonight
found guilty of manslaughter on ac
count of 'the death of his daughter
Loretta, ? years of age. ""
His wife, Sarah, who had been on
trial with him on the same charge,
was acquitted. The jury deliberated
nearly eight hours. Sentence will be
pronounced Tuesday, jaorning. The
maximum "penalty " for t manslaughter
in .this, state'' is' twenty years' 'im-
AVakeleitt and his wife were origi
nally indicted ior murder, but charge
was changed to manslaughter. The
state contended that when. Loretta,
or "Tootsie" as she was caMjd, was
sent home from .school on tm morn
ing of June 1,. 1916, for, a book she
had forgotten, - she objected to re
turning to school, and that in a fit of
anger Wakelein seized her more for
cibly than he intended and choked
her to death. Then, in order to di
vert suspicion, according to the state's
allegation, he mutilated the child's
body and concealed it in the woods
near the home in Melrose-, so as to
make it appear that his daughter had
been the victim of a degenerate.

GIVEN DOPE AND
FUSHT THE KAISER
Conscientious Objector Twice
Arrested f6r Avoiding the
Draft is a Changed
Gustav Eric Gustavsen, con
scientious objector, whose religion
forbade him to fight, and who was ar
rested twice in an attempt to avoid
the draft, is at last on his way to
Camp Funston, breathing forth fire
and brimstone and anxious for a
speedy meeting with the kaiser's min
ions. The credit for Gustav's conversion
lies with a certain wise physician at
Fort Omaha, where Gustav was com
mitted after being arrested. On his
secohd visit there he feigned sickness
and was taken to the hospital. Lieu
tenant Scott, the. physician who, re
ceived him, has a method of hi own
invention for such cases. He mixed a
large and nauseous dose, of cod liver
oil and similar ingredients, gave it to
the young objector and put him to
bed. In the morning the young man
clamored for a gun and a ticket tc
Thursday he, in company with two
others, was put on the train by his
board-and shipped to the training
canip As they passed through the
gates Gustav looked up at V. G. Ure
."Say, Mr. Ure, do you know when
I was at Fort Omaha they gave me
some medicine that made a regular
fighting man of me I" The conversion
bids fair to be lastiug, it is said. After
this and after a kindly talk from Col
onel Hersey at the fort, the young
man changed his views and thinks he
will like the army now.
