"Our country Is engaged in a war
"to make democracy safe for the world
' and has called upon the women of the
"-country not only to send their young
-.sona to serve under the colors, to as
sist in caring: for their material needs
.and comforts, but also to act as a sec
ond line of defense in assisting to
maintain the social and industrial con
editions for which they have so long
'labored. Therefore it seems to be
.the psychological time for the govern
yment to give to the women of Amer
ica the most efficient tool for carry
ing out their work the ballot.
"With this weapon they can the
better assist in maintaining conditions
-.which will return to our homes young
men physically, morally and spirit
wally fit to take up the work of re
construction and of safeguarding the
coming generations who must carry
"forward the principles of democracy.")
The above is the portion of the !

ciation which was the basis for an ar
ticle printed in the Worlc-Herald of
Wednesday, copied in the State Jour
nal Thursday and commented upon
by the other papers in Omaha and

; V Fixing it Up.
The State Journal of FViday has
this comment to make on its own par
ticipation in the incident:
'"It turns cut that the statement
concerning the effect of the war upon
the health and morals of the soldiers
attributed to Mrs. W. E. Barkley at
the Omaha suffrage meeting was not
i an exact report of her speech. It
was the interpretation put upon it
by Mrs. Minnie Boyer Davis and j
given to the press as her justification
for starting to rough house the meet
ing. No reporters were present at
the time the speech was made ami.
the version given to the newspapers
by Mrs. Davis was accepted as gen-i
tune, to the wtnder and discomfiture
of the women who heard Mrs. Bark
ley's speech and saw nothing in it
reflecting upon the American army."
Abbott Savs Peoole Are
' Ready for Universal Training
George M. Abbott, field secretary of
the Universal Military Training
eague of Chicago, is visiting Omaha
itt the interests of the league.
i "There is no reason why congress
should t pass the Chamberlain bill
for universal military training as one
of its first acts now that it has re
assembled," declared Mr. Abbott.
"The people are prepared for it; more
than a very large majority have al
ready expressed themselves by reso
lution or otherwise as anxious that
the measure be passed and not wait
until the lessons of our present
troubles have faded away. Its pas
&ge will not in any way interfere
with the , orderly progress of the
proper measures to vigorously con
' duct the war; on the contrary it will
be an incentive to their higher effi
ciency. "All that the advocates of universal
military training want is to create for
our national life as we create for our
nrivtji 1iua ori.ar a united familv.
each member of which will serve all
the others bravely, fearlessly and de
votedly in times of danger as well as
in times of peace. That is all they
want and no more. ' i
"There would be fewer exemptions
of city weaklings and pool hall loaf
ers if universal military training were
given the opportunity to make them
physically and mentally fit, both for
national defense and private living.
Had such a system been inaugurated
a few years ago, in all probability,
the kaiser would not have scoffed at
our military efficiency and we might
not be in the present war."

The Spirit off Christmas
It will be a season of good cheer tempered with
thoughtfulness. A period of friendships renewed,
with a greater appreciation of their value. Ex
travagance is banished. Moderation reigns su
preme. The great majority will select such gift
articles as are sensible, useful and worthy. There
is no mythical pleasure in being practical. It is a
very real feeling of satisfaction.
This will be our thirty-first Christmas in Omaha.
We won't have any different sort of a store at
this particular season than we have conducted
throughout this year and the many others that
have passed before.
We can assure you of whole-hearted interest in
your perplexities. A cheerful service every day
and all day. A store full of the best good things
that we have been enabled to gather here under
one roof for your pleasure and convenience.

warm. Rich furs have been used to great advantage . in the
large collars, cuffs and wide bands around the bottom. "
