r EYES FOR THE NAYY'
'. IS URGENT APPEAL
field glasses. will be delivered in all
A liberal rfsponse followed the drive
by naval recruiting officers, but the
demand fon binoculars, spy glasses,
sextants, telescopes and chronometers
is larger than the apparent supply.
Omaha citizens have responded lib
erally in helping to supply the navy
with eyes. W. E. Foshier of the
Foshier Auto company, Mrs. R. D.
Kirkpatrick, David Cole of the Cole
Creamery company, T. M. F. Heu
mann of Benson and E. C. Twamfey
have all contributed glasses. In ad
dition to the glasses delivered to the
recruiting station, many have been
sent direct to Washington to Assis
tant Secretary of the Navy Roosevelt.
A "careful record of the glasses is
kept in order that they may be re
turned at the conclusion of "the war
and all glasses should be carefully
wrapped and tagged with the name
and address of the owner. Upon re
ceipt at the ship the owners will be
notified by whom they are being used
and for what purpose.
The binocular shortage has handi
capped men on the submarine chasers
in searching the sea for periscopes
of hostile submarines, which necessi
tated the present drive for glasses.
Following the first appeal more than
6,000 pair were loaned to the navy.
Warm Weather Dispels
Fear of Coa! Shortage
The warm weather of the last few
days has relieved most of the anx
iety that existed on account of a pros
pective coal shortage of alarming
proportions. At least this is the sit
uation so far as Omaha and its ter
ritory is concerned.
Mild weather enabled the railroad
people to work their switching crews
up to capacity, and as a result coal
cars that had been laid in on sidings
at out-of-the-way stations during the
severe weather nave, been pulled .out
and spotted at the yards of the con
signees. As a result; practically all
of the dealers are supplied with coal
and while the quantities are not un
usually large there is enough on hand
to supply the immediate heeds of the

Suit Case Hearing in Police
Court Reveals Family Spats
The Suit case was up for hearing
in police court Friday morning. Mrs.
Minnie Suit alleged that Bert had
failed to provide support for herself
and two children, Walter and Ruth,
7 and 4 years old, respectively. Bert
retorted that he had always supported
his family, but demurred when asked
to live with them. He did pay a
visit to the home. Twenty-sixth and
Dodge streets, one day last week, he
said, but himself and wife quarreled
all the time he was there, so he left
early in the evening. He was bound
over to district court.
