V Flights Made by
!' Fort Omaha Men
' A, remarkable' parachute jump was
made at Fort Omaha yesterday by
. Lieutenant Maurice Smith. From a
height of 1,400 feet he stepped out into
the blue as easily a if he had been
making parachute leaps for years,
though this was his first. The descent
was perfect, the parachute opened
slowly and Smith, who is a heavy
man, floated slowly to-the ground in
1 minute and 42 seconds.
Smith is a Vale man and an ex-foot
" ball star. He has been one of the best
, students at Fort Omaha, where he
has been training for iive months. As
soon .as the war broke out, he or
ganised a balloon squad at Yale,
where he "was then a senior and ob
tained the aid of wealthy alumni in
. buying a balloon. As soon as the
Fort Omaha balloon school was
Itarted, he vas advised to come here
ind did so, bringing a number of his
. classmates along. All these have won
Captain , Frank Goodalc, who made
the first parachute jump of the Fort
Omaha balloon school'wlille ex-President
Taft was here, made a second
iump yesterday at Fort Omaha, fol
lowing the jump of Lieutenant
Smith. This was. made to try out
some new liampss connected with the
. parachute invented by Leo Stevens.
The jump was perfectly successful
and through it new ideas for the mak
ing. of the harness were obtained.

Pefsisten Advertising Is the Road
President J. H. Schafer of the Na
tional Retail Grocers' association, who
has been representing the grocers in
conferences with Mr. Hoover at
Washington, does not believe that
State Food Administrator Wattles'
"fixed-p'rice-schedule" plan will re
ceive the sanction of the federal food
authorities. Mr. Wattles' plan, how
ever, receives the endorsement of a
great majority of the Omaha grocers.
Following an address by Mr. Wat
tles to 300 Omaha grocers assembled
at the Commercial club last evening,
in which Mr. Wattles advanced his
plan for fixing prices by an agreement
with committees representing the re
tailers and wholesalers, Mr. Schafer
Not on All Staples.
"I don't think that Mr. -Hoover in
tends, as the gentleman who preceded
mc'said, to fix a price on all staple
articles in addition to those on which
just prices are already fixed, i As I
understand it, you are merely asked
to sell at a reasonable profit on youf
"We. must interfere with .private
business to a certain extent at a time
like this," said Mr. Wattles. "We
must comply with the law. Some of
you are going to have to take less
profit on staple articles than you
might have been able otherwise to
"What is money .at a time like this?"
Mr. Wattles asked. "For God's sake,,
men, it's the cheapest thing we can
give," he said, and the sentiment was
greeted with applause by the grocery
men. Likes License Plan.
President Schafer stated he believed
the licensing system, which is going
into effect to control wholesalers and
the' larger retailers, to be the greatest
thing for handling the food situation
fairly that the war had produced. He
urged the grocerymen to co-operate
with the government in every way
possible to win the war. "We won't
make "much profit, but we'll be doing
a great good," he said.
Tuesday Musical Opening Concert.
The Tuesday Musical club opened
its season most auspiciously last eve
ning at the Boyd theater, presenting
Fddy Brown, violinist, and Oscar
Seagle, baritone, in joint recital. To
have two such artists together fur
nished the large audience of music
lovers continuous delight throughout
the program. Both Mr. Brown and
Mr. Seagle i seemed to have spent
much thought and care upon, the se
lection of each, number, and they"
brought to us many novelties, showing
how well worth knowing they are by
masterful interpretations of them.
Mr. Brewn, new to Ojnahs.Mid not
take long tp establish himself in high
favor. He draws a sure and master
ful how, trained to the most exacting
demands, interprets with authority,
and his tone is anything he chooses to
make it, either soft and caressing,
broad, or brilliant as the case may be
He opened the program with a, con
certo by Conus, unknown to Omaha
heretofore, but a work of large scope.
It opens with an Allegro Molto of
brilliancy, and well-built climaxes, dis
closes a poetic and melodious Adagio,
and ends brilliantly with a second
Allegro movement. His second group
was made up of five shorter pieces,
the familiar , Bach . Gavotte, played
with an infectious rhythm; a broad-.
toned and reposeful Handel Larghet
to;" "Rondino," by Cramer, and ar
ranged by Mr. -Brown; dainty and
charming; "Playera-," by Sarasate, a
lovely and much appreciated number,
and "Guitar," by Moszkowski, full of
brilliancy. His closing group brought
besides the welcome "Orientale," by
Cui, a dashing "Caprice No. 32," by
Paganini, also arranged by Mr.
Brown, and an elaborate "Rondo
Papageno," by Ernest, of attractive
thematic material and" wide contrasts.
Mr. Brown was recalled time and
again, and added many extra numbers.
1oth at the close and in the midst' of
Last winter we had an opportunity
of saying what we thought abQttt the
fine artistry of Oscar Seagle, and last
night he demonstrated it to a much
larger audience. He is a master of
interpretation, and presents his songs
with a thrill and vividness not soon
forgotten. He gave a stirring pre-"
sentation of the "Prologue" from "I
Pagliacci," a number well suited to
Mr. Seagte's fine baritone, lie pre
sented in the same group four old
French songs with consummate re
straint and skill, of which "L'amour dc
inoi" and "Tambourm," the one of
exquisite tenderness, the other joyous
and suggestive of its name, especially j
are remembered. !

THERE IS NOTHING LIKE RIDING
IN A BALLOON, SAYS MAHER
Having had the experience of aero
plane and submarine rides in days
gone by, ifajor John G. Maher of
the army building has long felt that.
there was but one more thrill com
ing to him.
He got that when he took a bal
loon ride from Fort Omaha. With
Colonel Mersey for a pilot he sailed
over the city for an hour.
As a result it is rumored around
the army building that the office of
the supply depot's disbursing officer
will soon be vacant, for Major Maher
wants to be transferred to Fort Oma
ha where he ca ride in balloons ev-N
"Ballooning is more thrilling than
the wildest auto ride, its silencee and
calm smoothness of action make the
noisy flight of the aeroplane lose all
its attraction and there is no smoth
ering or other discomfort as in sub
marine sailing," said Major Maher. "I
wish I were younj enough and I
would enlist with the rest of the stu
dents at Fort Omaha today,"
"I took the flight tp test my vesti
bular apparatus," said Major Maher.
"I found it was working perfectly.
Ballooning is like riding on air, and
you don't have to think about running
over anybody. You have a free road.
"One gets- a wonderful view of the
country from a height'of several thou
sand feet. It is strange and rare. As I
looked down upon Miller and Han
scom parks, they seemed like city lots.
Building 10 and IS stories high looked
like cracker bo:tes.
"The balloon is very important in
this war; its value depending upon the
observer. Applicants at Fort Omaha
are given a rigid test and those ad
mitted are a picked Tot, indeed."
In his second group "Vision Fugi
tive," by Massenet, again proved Mr.
Seagle the inastir interpreter, and the
three French songs, "Saint Dorothe,"
"Papillons" and "Carnaval," by F'ou
drain, which Mr. Seagle substituted
for others on the program, were every
one gems of widely different. styles,
and makes us anxious to hear more
from this composer.
A group of negro spirituals by
Henry T. Burleigh brought some
charming settings for several old
negro melodies from the negro canip
mcetings. Mr. Seagle, like Mr. Brown,
was generous with encores after each
group.'and the closing encore. "Swing
Low, Sweet Chariot," in the Burleigh
setting, was one of the most effective.
Mr. Brown and Mr. Seagle each
had his own accompanist, and, al
though their names were not given
upon the program, they will be re
membered for their splendid accom
paniments. H. M. R.
