LODGED IN JAIL
Speaks Disparagingly of United
States and Lauds the Kaiser
and Then Is Arrested
, by Police.
Ed Ackermann, a German, living at
5030 South , Twenty-fifth street, was
arrested and lodged in the police
station Sunday on complaint of his
wife, who told the officers he had
spoken disparagingly of America and
American soldiers, had lauded Ger
many and the kaiser, and taunted her
because she is an American. He said
he hoped "every d one of the
American soldiers would be killed,"
and that "he would like to help do it,"
his wife declared.
Ackermann, according to his wife's
statement, has repeatedly made
sneering remarks about the United
States and its army, and lately has
grown abusive because she refused
to agree with his pro-German views.

CHANCE FOR WOMEN
TO REFORM WORLD
Rev. 7red Clark Points Out the
Ideals That Are Within the
Reach of the Females of
Rev. Fred Clark, at the First
Congregational church Sunday morn
ing, warned against the commer. ial
izing of women's gifts and powers
at the expense of her womanliness.
"The ideals of mankind are poured
into the race through, and by its
women," said the speaker. "Today
our women are going out and
working side by side with the men.
Herein lies the danger to be avoided.
God pity us if we grind down our
women by paying them unfair wages,
or by putting them where their
idealism will be smirched.
"There are three ideals thaf must
be preserved the ideals of woman
hood, of usefulness and of the heart.
Will Transform World.
"If women will carry their ideals
into business, politics and all their
new fields of endeavor, they will
transform this old, bored, stale
world in a startling manner. They
must preserve these ideals. We
cannot, in justice to coming genera
tions, allow these sacred things to
"I believe that the ideal of useful
ness is higher today than it was a
year ago. Yet today there are more
useless women in the homes of the
well-to-do than anyv here else. They
gossip, waste time, spend money and
use up the energies of society. They
yield no service, thought, character
or the truits of womanhood.
Woman an Eternal Marvel.
"The ideal of the" heart must be
preserved. In the outpouring ot her
love and self-sacrifice, woman stands
towering above man so hiuh tha he
cannot comprehend her. She is an
eternal marvel to him, a wonderful
mystery before which he stands like
a child. -And this ideal is best de
veloped in the home, the home where
woman is wife and mother.
GOAL ON SALE
An official report of the national
war savings committee, to sta(e di
rector of war savings, Ward M. Bur
gess, shows official compilation up to
and including March 8. From this
compilation, it appears that the sales
of war savings stamps in three days
preceding March 8, were $2,295,000.
$2,970,000 and $3,049,000. respectively.
The war savings sales of the coun
try are now producing uowards of
$3,000,000 per day, which provides the
treasury with about one tenth cf the
entire amount now expended by the
nation. While $3,000,000 is only S
cents per day for every woman and
child of the country, the entire cost
of the war is only 30 cents per caoita
per day, says Mr. Burgess.
The sale of war savings stamps
will finance the government's entire
shipping program. The current re
ceipts from their sale will already
average the cost of building 12,000
tons of shipping per day.
Mr. Burgess says that Nebraska
should be proud of the part it is tak
ing in the matte- of war finance and
that all Nebraskans should lend a
ready hand to pushing the sale of war
savings stamps, because of the in
terest aroused by the sales in Ne
braska and other states.
The war savi.igs campaign con
ducted by the Omaha life insurance
men with IS, two-men teams working,
has resulted in an average of 80 ap
plications for war savings stamps by
the solicitors. The total subscriptions
reported Saturday morning was about
$125,000. Several of the insurance
men are still working and thev be
lieve the subscriptions obtained by
the life insurance men will , reach
$150,000 before the state-wide drive
refund money if it fails. 25c
