THE BEE: OMAHA, SATURDAY, MARCH 23. 1918.
One Thousand Members of
Order Pack Hall; Patton Pre
sented With Beautiful
Jewel by Rite.
The spring convocation of the An
ient and Accepted Scottish Rite
Masonic bodies of the Valley of Oma
ha, came to a conclusion with a ban
quet at the cathedral Thursday. More
than 1,000 members of the order
packed into the big dining room and
pverflowed into the parlors.
Former United States Senator E.
J. Burkett of Lincoln was the prin
cipal speaker of the evening, his topic
being: "Is the Old Flag Worth Fight
ing For?" His answer to this ques
tion brought forth round after round
of applause from the assemblage, and
many of his statements were cheered
to the echo. Senator Burkett not only
finds that the old flag is worth fight
ing for, but predicted a sad day for
the man who fails to fight for it now.
The fight will not be in Europe alone,
but here in America, in Nebraska as
well as in France, said he.
, Speaks to Soldiers.
Speaking to the young soldiers who
'were present, he said: "You, young
men are going to the trenches, to
fight for the liberty not of your land
alcne, but for all the world. You are
going forth to fight a great battle, to
accomplish a great work, to win a
great victory, and we who can not
go will stay behind to back you up
in every way we can.
"If the government has the right
to conscript the young men of our
country to go forth to fight, it has
the right to conscript the labor of
every man who remains behind of
every enemy alien and every neutral
well. I have only contempt for
the man who has come from abroad
to seize on every Opportunity our
flag offers him, and who will give
nothing i- return. But I have no
words to utter my detestation for the
man in whose veins flows American
blood who will not now do all he can
for the old flag and the cause it
represents. Our government is now
pledged to give every drop of blood
and every dollar of property to the
securing of victory, and we must make
good on that pledge.
"No greater; tribute .'was ever paid
to the American flag than when the
nations 'of Europe, England, France,
Italy, and what was" left of Russia
turned to;.it as the only hope of
democracy, looking to us to win the
victory for human liberty."
Patton Gives Present.
At the beginning, of the program
Tinley L. .Coombs, .3d honorary, pre
sented to Frank Cafgill Patton, 33d,
sovereign grand inspector general
for Nebraska, a magnificent jewiel of
liis rank, on beljalf of the brethren
in the state. . This jewel' is-.oi special
significance, because it was paid for
by donations from the members of
the rite. in this state, and was made
in Omaha, being turned out by the
i. B. Brown company.
"Mrs. Cuthbert Vincent, for the"
Scottish Rite Woman's club, pre
sented the bodies a beautiful grand
piano, which was accepted by W. E.
RJjoades, president; of the governing
board of the cathedral. Other
speakers of. the evening were Mar

OF BATTLE HATE
Germans With Utmost Ferocity
Refused to Take Canadians
Prisonenr, But Shot Them or
Let Them Die of Wounds.
"It's a slow, slow way of getting a
meal, shelling oats," said Sergeant
Edward Edwards, survivor of the
Canadian Princess Pat regiment, in
his Liberty loan speech at the Audi
torium Thursday, when he told of
living on oats plucked from the fields
while he was escaping from a German
prison, to Holland.
Edwards is not a fiery talker at the
start, but when he gets warmed to his
speech, he tells a thrilling story, and
the best of it is he does not. seek
to put the thrills into it. He has no
tricks of larfguage to make the story
glow, but he just tells it in the short
est and simplest way, and there is so
much of it that half the people in the
audience heard him through with their
mouths wide open.
End of the Princess Pats.
Description of the fight in which
the Twenty-first Prussians annihilated
the famous Princess Pats, and killed
the Canadians right and left even
after some of them had surrendered,
so awed the audience that one could
have heard a pin drop at anytime.
He told of one man who threw up
his hands and surrendered, whereupon
a Prussian pressed his rifle against the
man's back and blew sujh a hole in
his groin that he bled to death in five
hour, though Edwards and the few
other' prisoners who had been spared,
sought all that time to stem the flow
of blood with ' old bandages they
picked up. ' ' ' '
"We had no good bandages," he
said. "Such as we had, had been used
before, and were -dirty. Ti:e Prussians
would give us none. ! ,
No Mercy From Prussians.
"One of our men right beside me
got a wound and dropped to his knees.
He couldn't get up. A Prussian stood
over him and threatened him. The
wounded mah looked up at the Prus
sian and said, 'God, man. play the
game.' The Prussian played the game
by sending a' bullet through his head.
"Several of the boys tried to sur
render when but a dozen or two of us
were left alive, but the Germans did
not want to take prisoners. One fel
low, put up his hands and a Prussian
blew his hand off with his gun. After
we were taken prisoner, the Germans
would give no attention to the rest
of us who were wounded. So we took
an old pocket knife ana whittled oft"
the fragments of his hand which still
hung on. When we got to the prison
they would give him no' attention and
he died iil4 days of blood poison.
Finally Made Escape.
Sergeant Edwards gave' the grip
ping details of l is life in the prisons
and the several attempts he and his
comrade made to escape. After starv
ing on raw turnips and green oats, he
said, they came to a potato patch, dug
some potatoes and roasted them. "At
the price potatoes are now," he said,
"I think we ate a fortune."
J. R. Pulli, the first wounded Oma
ha boy to return from the front, was
on the stage with his crutches. -His
foot still isrin very bad shape. He
was asked to speak, but only said a
few words. He begged to be excused,
because he said his sister was very
low fn a local hospital and he wished
to hurry to her bedside.
Talk by Aviatrix.
Dorothy Frooks. the national avia
trix, in her talk declared that every
rtian in the room between 21 and 31
belonged in the khaki or the blue if he
has no dependents, and that people
must begin to take the war more seri
ously. Mjss Frooks and Sergeant Edwards
leave for Lincoln this morning, where
they speak today.
Union Outfitting Company
Gives Monthly Dance
More than 300 employes of the Un
ion Outfitting company and their
friends gave their monthly dance
Monday night in the Metropolitan
hall. There was a prize waltz, in
which practically all entered and
which was enjoyed immensely ' The
hall was decorated and each one pres
ent was presented with a shamrock.
The affair was entirely formal and
dancing was enjoyed by all. Grape
juice punch, the new product of the
Omaha Selling and Advertising
league, was served.
Hustle For Recruits; .

WOMAN HURT IN
Victim of Crash Taken Away
Before Officers Arrive at
Scene; Taxicab Driver
A woman, bleeding about the head
and face, was taken from the scene
of an automobile accident at Thir
teenth stieet and Missouri avenue
early Friday morning by two other
women and a man whose identities
have not been learned.
The driver of the car, who remained
after the other occupants had fled,

Sixteenth and Grant streets, but re
fused to divulge the names of the
others in the car. Peterson says he
is a taxicab driver for the Carlton
Taxicab company, 417 South Fif
teenth street. The car belongs to the
company, he said.
Witnesses say the car was driven

souri avenue the car swerved ti the
right, going over the curb and crash
ing into' an empty stofe buildmg at
the southwest corner of the interjec

molished and the ivindshield smashed.
Glass from the broken windshield is
thought to' have caused the wotu.n's
injuries. Peterson was arrested and
taken to the South Side police station,
where he was charged with intoxica
tion and reckless driving.
Farmers From Howell Sell
Hogs for Red Cross Funds
Nebraska farmers are still bringing
in loads of hogs and selling them at
auction for the benefit of the Red
Cross. The last load to arrive came

Fu'chs, a Spanish-American war
veteran, and hog buyer of Howells.
There were 84 hogs in the shipment,
which was sold to J. W. Murphy at
$17.35 per hundredweight, netting the
Red Cross approximately $2,725.

Naturalization Fees Not
Included in Court Report
Naturalization fees are not included
m the report of district court fees for
the last three months of 1917 filed
with the county clerk Thursday by
Robert Smith. This is in spite of the
specific command in a law of Ne
braska passed in 1917. Attached to the
report is the following "explanation:"
"Naturalization fees are omitted in
this report pending action on my re
quest to the county commissioners to
have my responsibility in the matter
of accounting for such fees deter
mined by an action in court, with
which final action I shall promptly
and cheerfully comply."
County Attorney Alagney, to whom
the county board referred the request,
has already announced that he would
take net action to discover whether
this law has been validly passed.

A delicious morsel of good, clean

all fun, in fact. The ankle of Mary
does have its part to play, of course,
but whatever of anatomical perfec

her and won't be satisfied unless he
Uniqueness is a large part of the
charm of "Mary's Ankle" (we mean
the play, not the ankle. The latter is
like many other feminine ankles, all
beautiful so we have been told). Put
the uniqueness of the play is in its
plausibility, in its ease of action and
naturalness of situation and the al
most complete absence of our old
friend, Coincidence, who works so
hard in most farces and comedies.
There is no mixing up of three or four
wives and husbands, no getting into
the wrong room, nothing of the usual
paraphernalia of the farceur. On the
other hand, as you will be happy to
find whe:. you sec it, there are just
three young men in the most ro
mantic of situations, peunilcssness
with "iope and intelligence. The dia
logue is full of laughs from the start
