BROUGHT TO DATE
Superintendent Beveridge Asks
Co -Operation of Business
Men by Practical
Superintendent Beveridge of the
public schools has asked for the co
operation of business and profes
sional men and women in an effort
to make the arithmetic instruction in
the elementary schools serve the best
interests of practical everyday affairs.
"This is an effort to teach arith
metic which will function with the
practical affairs of the life of the boys
and girls after they leave school,"
stated the superintendent
Criticism has been heard that arith
metic instruction in the schools has
not been in step with the demands
6f business and professional life.
The superintendent has asked rep
resentative men and women of Oma
ha to submit 10 typical arithmetical
problems which apply to their respec
tive lines of work. When these prob
lems have been collected, the superin
tendent then will group them and de
termine what are the present essen
tials for an elementary education.
To Complete Annex for
The Automobile Show
The McCaffrey Motor company,
building just south of the Auditorium,
which will house part of the big
automobile show, ' is now nearing
Sherman McCaffrey, who is super
intending the workis rushing that
part of the building which will be de
voted to the exhibition of cars and
this will be finished in plenty of time
for tut show.
The concrete floors will be finished
with a special dustproof preparation,
The chief objection to concrete floors
in an exhibition of this kind is dust
arising, and treating the floors in this
way will make them even better than
floors covered with burlap or rub
beroid. The walls, ceiling and posts will all
be painted an ivory white and this
work will be started within the next
Mr. Colling, who has charge of the
decorations, is planning some espe
cially attractive features for this
part of the exhibit.

ALL FLOUR MILLS
Sweeping Order Reaches, Food
Administrator Wattles; Means
Further Conservation of
s Wheat and Eye.
All flour mills must now be li
censed. Formerly only those mills
with a capacity of 75 barrels of flour
per day or more were required to
take out a license. A new order
which has just reached Food Admin-
Ustrator Wattles requires the licens
ing of all mills of less than 75 bar
rels per day capacity. This makes
a clean sweep of all mills. The 75
barrels per day refers to either wheat
or rye flour, or both.
All these nulls must aooly for li
censes to the license department of
the- federal food administration on or
before February 15.
the movement is to further con
serve the wheat and rye supply.
The mills under the regulation will
not be permitted to store wheat or
rye for a supply of more than 30 days.
They are to use not more than 264
pounds of wheat, running 58 pounds
to the bushel, in the manufacture of
196 pounds of flour. The profits must
be only the average pre-war profits.
The millers must make monthly re
ports of the amount of wheat and
rye ground, the amount of each kind
of flour produced, the amount of tran
and shorts produced, the prices paid
for wheat and rye, prices received for
the product and the amount of flour
and feed still on hand.

on Conditions Which Have
to Be Met.
"Know your costs and depar
mentalize them," was the advice
given the Retailers' Conservation
council at the Hotel Fontenelle by
J. S. Baley of Chicago, talking on
war-time business problems. He in
sisted that a merchant sometimes
thinks a certain department is not
paying, when as a matter of fact it
is paying better than anything else in
He cited a case which had come
under hi observation -of a merchant
who had among other departments
a soda fountain, which he was plan
ning to discontinue because he
thought it was a losing department.
A traveling man heard him talk of
tearing out the fountain and advised
him first to keep an accurate cost ac
count on the fountain for one mont
The merchant did this, and to his
amazement discovered that the soda
department was not only paying its
own expenses, but was making
enough money to carry along two of
the other departments, which were

SAYS PEOPLE OF
Wealthy Farmer Declares War
Cannot Last Much Longer;
Was Schoolmate o? Ber
tha Krupp's Husband.
"I, would just like to have the
kaiser sitting on that smoke stack and
then take my high power rifle and see
how many shots it takes me to knock
Charles Voss, farmer, owner of 440
acres of land in Dakota county and
father of County Superintendent of
Schools Voss of that county, made
this answer when someone asked
him what he thought of the kaiser.
He came to Omaha to see United
States Marshal Flynn about register
ing. For, though he is a dyed-in-the-wool
American, he never fook out his
second papers. He took his first
citizenship papers in Pennsylvania
right after he reached this country in
4873. "They told me that was all
there was to do and I always thought
I was a full citizen," he said.
Escaped from Germany.
Voss was born in Westphalia, Ger
many, near Essen, the seat of the
Krupp gun factory. He went "to
school with the lieutenant who. later
married Bertha Krupp. At the age
of 18, just before he was to begia his
military training, he made his escape
from Germany, was smuggled on
board a ship which had already left
its dock, aid came to America.
"I have never been back.. I never
wanted to go back," he said. "I
know what life in Germany is and
what life is in America. "If I had to
go back I would jump off the ship
' "Do you thing there is any chance
that the German people will rise
against the kaiser?" he was asked.
r If they ever do nothing can stop
them. But they are watched. Nobody
can say a word without being de
tected. I know that thousands
despise the overlords, but they can
do' nothing. You know what hap
pened to some of the socialists that
spoke too loud.
Says They're Peaceful
"They were put in the front line
trenches. But if revolution once gets
a start there that's the end of the
kaiser. The German people do not
like fighting. It is the officers and
the military machine that make them
do it. I have nephews over there and
they are such as can't bear to even
hurt a fly."
"How soon do you think jhe war
"It cannot last more than two years
longer. Those people are so over
burdened with taxes that they can't
keep it up. Two years ago I had a
letter from my niece and she says
'Oh, how tired we are of this warl'
Think how they must feel now. With
America coming in fresh, America
will decide the war. And wheji it is
over I think all nations will disarm.
That is the only way to make the
