Twelve Out of Twenty Educa
tional Institutions In State
Pledge $15,000, and Are
So far, the universities and colleges
of Nebraska have' raised $15,000 for
the $35,000,000 drive which the Young
Men's Christian association is mak
ing for war work. The amount an-
portioned to the Nebraska higher
schools is $25,000 and the secretary
in cnarge, Air. u a. tioicomDe.
predicts that subscriptions will ex
ceed that amount by several thou
sands. There are 20 institutions in our
state which are included in the list.
'Of these only 12 have completed their
campaign and have turned in over
The hardest work is being done at
Doane, Hastings and York colleges.
These schools have an attendance of
about 125 each, but their contribu
tions so far are about $1,200 per
school, making an average of nearly
$9 per student. The faculty of the
Peru normal' school voted to give 15
per cent of their salaries and when
the collection was taken the amount
had been exceeded by $100. Omaha
university and the Nebraska college

helped greatly also.
Secretary Holcombe, comments on
the work in this way.
"The unselfish spirit and sacrificial
attitude which the stitrtrnre hive
shown is very gratifying. As I go
from college to college I feel as though
the students are receiving a great bene
fit from this work. They are realiz

are cheerful about it. savin or "if men
can live in those awful prison camps

The students of the University of

Al Reeves' Beauty Show
Has More Beauties Than Eve
Al Reeves' "Beauty Show" well up
holds its reputation for good-looking
chorus girls this year with an all-star
cast, which is led by the Wood sis
ters, Miss Jean Leighton; and Miss
Maybelle Gibson. 1
Dave Lewis' and Edwin T. Guhl take
very well with the crowd in their char
acter roles as "Count De Rumsky"
and "Duke De Bunk." Al Reeves is
the whole show during the second act,
his impersonation of a minister caus
ing much mirth. , N
The first act is replete with good
songs and catchy music, the Wood
sisters especially being very popular.
A dancing skit by Miss Kramer, who
is declared to be holder 'of the world's
champion Richard K. Fox dancing
medal, and Kennedy, her partner, is
an added attraction.
The Columbia Amusement com
pany, which controls the string of
o uayety theaters throughout the

The fever of speculation is as noth
ing beside the wave of enthusiasm that
has swept over the churches of Oma
ha regarding the drive of the Young
Men's Christian association for its
big war fund. Addresses have been
made- by the score telling of the
horrors and Suffering in the war tone,
and the needs of the soldiers in the
trenches have been set forth so often
that they have sunken into the Arner
ican soul, but when those ouiet work'
ers, the women and the mothers who
know what the word sacrifice means
took hold the sentiment grew until it
brought into line the faithful women
of 50 Omaha churches, regardless of
race or creed, all with woman's energy
and womans' determination and wom
an s persistence, all with fixed resolve
to raise their share of Omaha's quota
ior tne great work.
They have organised thoroughly,
nave tnese women workers, and when
the drive is started today it will roll
up the dollars as a snowball gathers
snow. The head of the movement is
Mrs. F. W. Judson, who is chairman
of the women's church committee
formed for this wprk, and associated
with her are Mrs. A. D. Peters and

WHAT BOYS WRITE

Letters From Cantonments Full
of Praise for What Y. M, 0. A.
Workers Are Doing for
Ninety per cent of the letters sent
home by boys when they first go to

tion, and without exception the sol
diers praise that institution, accord
ing to careful statistics just completed.
une letter, typical or all the others.
is from Julius D. Cronin, son of D.
H. Cronin, editor of the Frontier at
O'Neill, Neb. Young Cronin is at
San Antonio, Tex. He writes:
We are still in Quarantine camn.
but expect to be released the first of
the week. After that we will be per
mitted to go to town every three
days and will be able to go over to
the Young Men's Christian associa
tion and move about in general,
whereas now we are tied down to our
own camp. Speaking about the Young
Men's Christian association, it is cer
tainly a great institution and deserves
the encouragement and support of all
people everywhere. They have houses
at all these camps, where you can go
and write, material all being furnished
free. I hey provide tree moving pic
tures, concerts and lectures most
every night, and have singing and
Bible exercises Sundays and different
evenings in the quarantine camp. At
Fort Logan they had an especially at
tractive place, piano and victrola al
ways ready for use, concerts every
eveninir and sacred concerts and sing
ing by congregation Sunday evenings.
All of you would be surprised, at
least 1 was. to see the tervor and
earnestness with which these soldiers,
both young and old, join in the serv
ices, and you would be still more sur
prised, if you misunderstood these
men as I did. to see them rise and
express confidence and belief in God,
tell from their, experience now ne
helped them and advise the nonbe
lievers to get into line. And this
comes not only from a few, but, on
the contrary, a great many: varying
in age -from 21 to 45, the majority be
ing middle aged."

Dr. Burton mentioned as outstand
