The Omaha naval recruiting station
not only ranks among the leaders in
the number of recruits enlisted but
far above the average in the quality
of men sent to join the sea forces.
This was shown at an examination
held recently for naval radio students
at Harvard University. Out of a class
of H4 but seven received a second
grade rating, which is the highest rat
ing possible until the recruit has
served on the water. Of the seven
to receive this rating two were Omaha

! TRACES GROWTH
I OF LITERATURE
Sholom Asch, foremost Jewish
! playwright and author, traced the de
velopment of Jewish literature from
its religious origin, the Bible, to its
present-day national aspect in a Iec-!
ture at the Swedish auditorium Fri- j
day night. Asch's lirst play, "The j
ooci ot engeance, translated into
several languages, won the young
author instant fame, but his many
stories of Jewish life in Russia have
given him leading place among all
The universal note of pathos in
Jewish literature Sholom Asch attrib
utes to the dispersion of Jewish peo
ple from the homeland. With the
return to 1'alestine, presaged by the
Zionist movement, the note of joy
and happiness would once more be
struck, he prophesied. ,
Earlier contributions to Jewish lit
erature are the traditions and folk
lore of Israel because all Jewish life
was bound up in its religious life. In
the last 30 years, he pointed out, due
to economic causes which have
massed countless thousands of Jews
in large industrial centers, a new lit
erature has sprung up, that of Pcrctz,
Sholom Aleichem and others.
Murdock and His Suitcase
Landed in Police Station
John Murdock was conquered by an
insatiable desire to smuggle corn juice
into a dry sate, so he supplied hiniJ
; sen yesicraay with quarts ot t lie
j "finest and most appetizing liquor ob
tainable at St. Joseph, the Mecca of
bootleggers, and started for Omaha.
As John hails from North Bend, he
presumably had not heard of the wiles
i f state agents, and when he stepped
from the Burlington train did not try
to avoid them.
His bulging and cheap appearing
suitcase aroused the suspicions of
State Agents Buell and Kelly, who in
vestigated and found the liquor.
Persistent Advertising Is the Road
Two Canadian Veterans

Captain R. V. Scmmie, M. C. of
the Canadian overseas forces is in

recruiting station. He is in
this country on sick leave and has
been placed in charge of the Kansas
City recruiting district.
He wears a military cross pre
sented him bv Kinsr Georce. The
medal was given for bravery when
he "personally" held for eight hours
an important block at Courcelette on
the Somme, October 1916. He was
twice wounded at the time.
The captain does not like to speak
oi uie part mat he played at Cource
lette but praises highly the bravery
of a brother officer. Lieutenant John
Anglin, who received a similar medal
for conspicuous bravery at the same
time. Lieutenant Anglin is a nephew
of Dr. R. S. Anglin, 101 South Thirty
ninth street and lost part of one leg
in this engagement.
Captain Semniie will pass a week
in Omaha before he returns to the
front some time in March. While
here he will investigate the possibili
ties of" Omaha as a recruiting depot
and in all probability wiN transfer
ee depot ftom Kansas City to this
point and make Kansas City a branch.
Sergeant J. Kerr of the Sixteenth
Canadian Highlanders has been
placed in charge of the local recruit
ing station. He relieves Sergeant'
Joyner who will leave for a speaking
tour telling of the conditions at the

Names of Living Germans
Taken From School Books
Chairman Wells of the teachers'
cemmittee of the board of education
states that references, to the German
kaiser and other living German per
sonages have been deletd from a text
book which has been used at the
High School of Commerce.
"This was what I would call Ger
man mush. It was not very serious,
but we thought it would be best to
have it stricken out," stated Mr.
The committee asked the priucipafs
of the high schools and elementary
schools to bring to the attention of
the committee any references in text
books which they believe should be
eliminated. The committee wants to
make sure that in ordering new sets
of books notm'ng which might be re
garded as in the least pro-German
shall appear in these books.

The man in a rut
the boys in the
The average man filling the average job with aver
age ability is a life-termer. He is just as good and just
as ordinary as his fellow. He marks off the pay days, as
tne clock marks off the seconds a habit probably ac
quired by watching it.
He grows old in the service, and bitterly curses fate
and an unappreciative employer, because he never wins
promotion and newcomers and younger men give the or
ders he must take.
Faithful service is commendable but talent will,
not be denied, hard-working, puffing and blowing
switch engines that work all day and never get anywhere
must take the side track when the express whistles.
Ruts are not confined to the trades and workshops.
The professions are full of them. The "shabby-genteel"
old gentlemen who were considered good dentists, good
doctors, good lawyers, ten, twenty or thirty years ago,
stood still while the procession marched by and today
are hopelessly in a rut because old age has dulled am
bition and left them "set and satisfied" in their ways.
It has been a pleasure to to prove to the public
that a Dentist could advertise and still be a gentleman.
It has been a source of pride to show competitors that
making, a price within the reach of all the people did
NOT necessarily mean lowering the standard of work. In
short, the rapid, steady, continuous . and continuing
growth of this office is due to the fact that I DID THINGS
that the old fogies said could not be done I GOT OUT
OF THE RUT, analyzed the limitations and shortcomings
of the profession found a way to eliminate unnecessary
pain, cut out red tape, charged nothing for "reputation"
systematized the practice of dentistry on business prin
ciples, employed dental specialists, and passed the sav
ings made on o the public. t .
If you are tired of the daily "lock-step," change it to
a quick-step look up start to climb awake ambition
