UNCLE SAM WILL
OF MEN AT FRONT
Soldiers at Fort Crook Receive
New War Department Or
ders For Protection of
Uncle Sam will provide amply (or
:he wives and mothers of the boys
ivlio go to the front.
Orders from the War department
-ead to the soldiers at Fort Crook,
Jisclose the government's plan for the
protection of soldiers' dependents
.visile the men are in service in France.
Soldiers at Omaha posts interpret
the reading of the new order to mean
that they will be sent to Europe at an
Each enlisted man is ordered to al
lot one-half his pay to his wife, moth
er or other relative dependent upon
him for support. The government
will add $25 dollars to the amount
withheld from the soldier's pay by his
allotment and transmit the sum to the
wife or mother or relative he desig
nates. If a soldier gives more than half his
pay to a dependent relative the gov
ernment will equal the excess over
one-half, dollar for dollar, and will
add this to the ?J5 provided by tnc
jovernment to her support.
Deposit Half Their Pay.
A single man who has no depend
ents is required to deposit one-half
his pay with the War department.
This money will be held for him in
trust and,will draw 4 per cent interest
until the war is over, his term of en
listment ends or he receives his dis
charge for. wounds or other cause,
when he can draw the amount accrued
on his deposits with interest com
This is intended as a fund upon
which he can rely for extra transpor
tation and clothing allowances.
The - new orders provide lor the
maintenance and protection of those
left at home when the boys leave for
the front. An enlisted man's pay is
$.?0 per month. If he allots the one
half of it, $15, to his wife the govern
ment gives her in addition $2. mak
ing Jier a monthly income-for the
support of herself and children of $40.
. How the Rule Works,
' If the soldier allots' $20 of his sal
ary to his family the government will
squal the $5 excess and give her $30
along with the $20 from his pay. Thus
the family's income at home vill be
$50-per month and the soldier will
draw $10 a month at the front.. His
total income from the government for
himself and family will amouitt to $60,
i nstead of only $.). If he allotted his
vhole salary nis dependents would re
ceive $0 month from the govern
ment, - ' . -
The 1' soldier's insurance costs him
$8 per $1,000, and he may pay for it
in 20 equal installments. The max
imum insurance he. may take out is
$10,000. Irvcase of his death his widow
or other dependent relatives will draw
not merely the amount of the policy,
but one-fifth of its face value as long
as they live. ' ... .
Draw Only $7 In France..
It is said that when the men (go
into service in France they will be
limited to $7 a month spending
money and the balance of their pay
will be put on interest and held J'pr
him by the War department. A man
when he comes-from the business
"n.r tVif.ri" will Imvr a IIP at little
nest egg awaiting him to start him in
business or for such other use as he
, may care to make scil it.
The restriction while in service in
France is made necessary by the fact
that a heavy influx of American gold
would disorganize money values in
that country. The $7 American gold
will buy four and one-half times as
much in France as the French money.
The American soldier's .pay will be
slightly more than that ot any of the
allied armies in. the field and will
doubtless be more than sufficient for
his needs. v

FEW CAFES FAIL
TO OBEY RULE FOR
One or Two Found Flagrantly
Violating Regulation; Reports
to Be Made to Department
Few violations of meatless day
regulations, but some defiantly flag
rant, were reported yesterday.
Investigation was made by officials
of the Omaha Hotel Men's associa
tion, working in conjunction with
State Chairman John F. Letton and
District Chairman Richard Kitchen.
Inspectors of the pure food office from
Lincoln also came in and began their

place in the city was visited and
in many instances check backs were
made where warnings had been given
Reports to Washington.
Reports of violations were turned in
to the chairman and will be forwarded
to Washington for action by the gov
ernment. Included in this list was one
large establishment, which had seven
kind of meats on its menu, according
to the investigators.
An evidence of the thoroughness of
the check and the general observance
was developed in the check of the dis
trict which included Farnam and
Douglas streets between Tenth and
Twentieth streets and side streets.
Only three violators were found in
this district; however, two of them
were defiant in their selling of meats.
' Chinese Hew to Line. -
Particularly gratifying was the ob
servance of the Chinese cafes. With'
out exception 'hey were hewing strict
ly to the line. A bland smile, with
sweet "Chinee" sorries, was all that
could be gotten when meat was or
dered. In contrast was the spirit at several
soda fountains, where sandwiches
were served.. In frequent instances
offers to serve meat sandwiches were
made, but when the inspector made
known his identity assurances were
hastily given that the practice would
Work to Be Thorough.
"Ou'r work will be much more thor
ough today because of the experiences
of yesterday," declared Mr. Kitchen.
, "The record of violations will be
forwarded to Washington," said Mr.
Letton, "and these reports will be
made without fear or favor." '
