YEAR OF WORK
BEGINS IN OMAHA
Executive Committee of Local
; Council Meets and Discusses
Plans for Future; Propose
Big Spring Drive.
Boy Scouts Of Omaha, as an "or
ganization, is entering upon its sec
ond year and the national organiza
tion started its ninth year of work.
The executive committee of the
Omaha council met last week and
discussed plans for the future, one
proposal being that a drive should be
made this spring for $10',000 with
which to push the work in Uniaha.
A year ago last November nearly
$18,000 was pledged, to be paid in
three years. The work during 1917
has show, that njore money must be
raised or the work curtailed. The
proposition of a fund campaign this
spring will be definitely decided with
in a week or so.
Suggests Week-End Camp.
The Omaha council plans to main
tain a week-end camp next summer
on a tract north of Florence. It is
oroposed to have two shacks, one
with sleeping accommodations for 60
bovs and four men and the other
shack to be used as kitchen and din
ing room. A summer camp will be
F held for two weeks to provide more
extended outings than the week-end
In connection with the observance
of the first anniversary in Omaha the
Scouts visited the heads of all war
activities and extended greetings and
offered assurances of future co-operation
by Boy Scouts in the work of
helping to win the war.
Another feature of the anniversary
was distribution of flowers in all hos
pitals yesterday. The scouts took 900
flowers to as many patients and with
each flower they left a word of com
fort and cheer.
Meet Saturday Night.
The annual meeting of the scouts
and scoutmasters will be held next
Saturday night in the Chamber of
Commerce. This meeting was to have
been held last Saturday night, but
weather conditions intervened.
Today is Scout Sunday, designated
by the National Council of the Boy
Scouts of America. In many pulpits
this morning the scout movement
will be referred to and recommended.
On the subject of Scout Sunday, C.
H. English, local scout executive, is
sued the following statement:
"One Sundav of each vear should
be devoted to a sermon on scouting.
If you have a troop affiliated with
your church, this is your opportunity
to render a valuable service. If you
have not a troop, it is your opportu
nity to stimulate interes: in the for
mation of one. As far as the church
goes, there is meed to definitely tie up
the boys with the church, and this
is a wonderful means of accomplish
ing that result. We would like to
have you make ah appeal for scout
leaders. The following is a suggested
outline oi a. sermon;, ,
"May we count upon you to render
this service to the boyhood of
Omaha on February 9? If you have
a troop, please invite that troop to

Prepares Mulligan Stew
By EDWIN A. BOLAND,
Reporter of Troop to.
The boys of our troop met at
Scoutmaster Edmunds' home, and
from there we hiked to East Omaha.
We then followed a path at the end
of the car line and soon reached a
little sandbar by the river. Then
came the work of clearing a place for
a fire. We soon had a fine fire go
ing from which the boys started in
dividual fires to cook their meals.
-Each boy cooked his own meal to
show that a scout is able to take care
of himself at meal time as well as at
Our scoutmaster made some mulli
gan stew and not having and water
used snow for moisture. He gave us
boys a taste and we thought it was
fine, only for the sand that was in it.
At that, we think our scoutmaster a
good scout and hope that he will soon
arrange another hike.
Boy Scouts An Deputized
As Special Food Agents
sf Boy Scouts of Omaha are all depu
tized as special agents of the food
administration to report to State
Food Administrator Wattles any viola
tion of the food regulations that come
under their observation.
This came as a surprise to the boys.
Friday afternoon when the Scouts
were going over the city in squads
calling on the various heads of war
activities, and other public activities
pledging their loyalty to every patri
otic movement and to every worthy
civic cause, a squad of them marched
into the office of the food administra
tor. After the boys had delivered
their greetings and pledged their loy
alty, Mr. Wattles arose and deputized
them and all their Omaha comrades
as special agents for the food admin
istration. ,WesIey Miller Earns Money

Big Saving for Omaha Firms by
Using the New Tarboard Binding
Those who are seriously practicing
conservation and are looking keenly
to their costs, are looking upon the
McBee Bindery company, second
floor of 1818 Harney street, as a
godsend. They are here getting their
records and riles bound at a saving
of fully 70 per cent of the price they
formerly paid tor this work.
It is simple enough, too, when the
. matter is all explained, ror the Mc
Bee company has suddenly blossomed
out into the bindery business in Oma
ha with a new tarboard cover which
is strong, durahle, clean-cut and not
costly. The tarboard is made under
a special process which gives it
strength, finish, and' lasting quali
ties at little cost. For the purpose
of containing permanent records,
newspaper files, order files, or in fact
any records whatsoever, it has proven
itself to be just the thing, and the
larger concerns in Omaha which have
a great deal of record binding to do,
have been patronizing the McBee
Bindery company liberally,
i The tarboard cover is adjusted
i quickly; the corners and backs are
bound in canvas just to receive the
harder bumps, and the backs are
lettered with vhateyer caption, name,
or explanation is necessary for that
particular file. All this is done in
10 or 15 minutes and the book is
ready for the files, where it is guar
anteed by the company to last in
The McBcc system is a fast sys
tem. A company dumping 50 or more
volumes into the shop to be bound
and desiring them back the same day
can have them. The machinery for
the binding is so perfect, and the sys
tem so simple, that one man can bind
at least 30 or 40 volumes in a day.
vThe tarboard is not expensive, and
