THE BEE: OMAHA. TUESDAY, MARCH 5, 1918.
HOUR DAY IN
Manager Murphy of Cudahy's
Contends That the Piece Sys
tem of Doing Work Prov
An eight-hour day fqr packing
house employes of the Omaha Cudahy
plant would mean great incon
veniences and a heavy added burden
of expense, according to Manager M.
"Enough live stock to fill the chill
rooms in every department can be
killed in eight or 10 hours," said
The local Cudahy plant is filling
enormous government orders.
In many departments where em
ployes were formerly paid a straight
salary the piece work system is now
being used and Mr. Murphy says
that the change is a decided improve
ment. "It gives the workers a practical
incentive," he said.
"For instance, in the hide depart
ment where workers formerly took
up about 700 hides a day they now
often take up 1,200."

Houston Calls on City
Folks to Help Farmer
Washington, March 4. Secretary
Houston of the Department of Agri
culture today issued a call to urban
people to study the farm labor sit
uation and to render assistance to
farmers during the coming crop
"If soldiers are willing to serve
in the trenches and risk their lives,"
declared Secretary Houston, "many
civilians can well afford to save a
part of their time to serve in the
furrows and in the harvest fields.
In many town and cities there are
men who have had farming experi
ence, who are able bodied and who
would doubtless be willing to serve
tha nation in the field of agriculture
at this time. Especially for the
seasonal strains of planting, culti
vating and harvesting, it will not be
too much to ask such men to aid
the farmers in the necessary under
taking of maintaining and if possi
ble supplementing the food supply
in order to feed the armies and to
sustain the civilian population be

Mr. Mantel! began his week's visit
to Omaha with what is to him some
thing of a mety, a Sunday perform'
ance, presenting his fine picture of
the cardinal in "Richelieu." In qther
times The Bee has warmly com
mended this role in its treatment by
the star, and now finds no cause to
abate judgment hitherto expressed.
Mr. Manteil naturally has found op
portunity to add to the artistic ex
cellence of his portrayal of the char
acter, until it has assumed well
rounded and carefully .thought out
proportions, and has become authon
tative if not the last word in expres
sion of the intellectual giant who
looms so grandly over the statesmen
of his day. It is Richelieu of his later
days, frail ami failing in bodily
health, his strength gone, no longer
able to lift the weapon he swung as a
toy in the battle s rage when the sol
dier supported the statesman; but it
is also the Richelieu who truly could
say: "Beneath the rule of men en
tirely great, the pen is mightier than
the sword." Age has not dimmed his
mind, nor lowered his spirit, nor les
sened his craft He could piece out
the skin of the lion with that of the
fox, and he showed as well the hu
man side in his tenderness for his
ward and his concern for her hapoi
ness. In the brief moments of relax
ation, the cardinals playfulness with
Julie, his quiet fun with Joseph, and
his exultation over the prospect of
defeating his opponents, serve to
lighten "what is otherwise a tense but
well sustained effort.
Fritz Leiber still gives to de Mau
prat that effective life which lifts it
a little above the plane on which the
role is written, and invests a some
what commonplace and cheap hero
with a quality of real worth, such as
might Justify the decision of his emi
nence in ine mauer or oestowing ine
hand and fortune of his ward. It is a
oleasure to note the rioenine of Mr:
Leiber's talent and requires no gift
of clairvoyance to foretell for him a
place among the stars. His work
throughout the week will give further
evidence ot his worth.
Mr. Barrett's Baradas is hardly bet
ter than it was written; the actor gets
but scant chance to show the graces
of a courtier that won so high a place
in Louis favor, or the quality ot cratt
that led him to match his wit against
that of the master plotter of the day,
Only in his display of terpidation in
the closing act did Mr. Barrett give an
effective touch to the part Mr. Peters
is rood as Joseph, the monk, and Mr,
Lindsley is convincing in the role of
Francois. Mr. Wray does the little
bit set down for de Beringhen very
well, and Mr. Lewers Louis is excel
Miss Hamper's experience since last
she was visible here has been suffi
cient to confirm her to a greater de
gree in her'art. She has lost none of
the pirlish charm with which she en
dowed the part of Julie, and has im
proved her utterance and expression,
so that the role is to that extent bene
fited in her treatment of it. Miss
Evenson is a more than charming
Marian, and ofte can understand with
what confidence the ploters resorted

Vaudeville at the Orpheum.

vaudeville can successful jump the
chasm between one extreme and tie
other. - '
One striking achievement marks the
dancing of Miss St., Denis. It is tie
utter simplicity of her dances. With
the boldness of the true artist, she has
eliminated all the semi-gymnastics
and other fancy frills popularly sup
posed to be requisites of the classical
dance, and gives each dance its per
fect interpretation. Miss St Denis is
assisted by Margaret Loomis, who
gives a dance of the desert
Charles Withers, an Omaha boy,
scores heavily in "For Pity's Sake," a
revised version of the travesty melo
drama in which he appeared here be
fore. Withers still portrays the char
acter of the rube manager of the hick
town opera house, who also is his
own property man. Withers' con
tortions on the ladder leading to the
stage loft are particularly laugh
provoking. Frank Crumit, the one
man glee club, strikes a popular chord
bv singing songs of more than a
score of years ago to the modern ac
companiment of the ukelele, and tell

way. Jim and Betty Morgan sing
songs ot their own composition

on this week's progran. of Hippo

Seven nominees out of 17 members
of the-various local labor unions, who
were chosen a week ago, were placed
on a slate for the city commissioner
ticket yesterday by the Working
Men's Nonpartisan and Economic
league. It has been said that the seven
candidates for city councilmen on the
nonpartisan ticket will enter the race
with a strong backing.
Since placing the ticket before the
union men of tha city, there has been
a small ballot box in the Labor Tem
ple, where members of the various or-
fanizations have voted their choice,
"he vote was completed March 1, and
Sunday afternoon the count was fin
ished, with the following results on
the seven candidates:

M. F. Rooney, Teamsters' union. ...... .1,(11
H. F. Wulf, Carpentera' union .1,601
Of the other 10 candidates, there are
several who were pretty close to the
low ones of the seven, but none close
enough so that there will be a con
test As the votes for candidates were
cast, the names of the voters were
checked. Every vote was under the
seal of the organization with which
the voter was affiliated.
