REV. TITUS LOVE
HOME AFTER SIX
3maha Minister Returns From
Six Months' Service in "Y.
M." Work on Battlefields
Rev. Titus Lowe, pastor of the First
Mcthijdist church of Omaha, arrived
;n Omaha Friday mornir.g, after six
months of service in Young Men's
v Christian association work on the bat
tle front in Europe.
The minister still wore the service
" uniform of the Young Men's Christian
association, when he swung off of the
Northwestern train to greet a large
number of members of his church,
friends and acquaintances, who had
gathered at the Union depot to wel
come him home.
Fred Walrath, who accompanied
Rev. Mr. Lowe to France, Mrs. Lowe,
his daughter, Jane, and Mr. and Mrs.
C. II. Walrath. arrived with Rev. Mr.
Lowe from New York, where, they
had gone to meet .him upon his ar
rival there from overseas. Mr. and
Mrs. Royal D. Miller and Rev. Mr.
Lowe's two daughters. Madeline and
Eveline, met him at Council Bluffs
and rode into Omaha with him.
Reception at Depot.
- A general reception was held at the
depot bv the 200 friends who had
assembled to meet the returning min
ister, after which be was escorted to
his home at 3261 Farnam street, where
he remained the rest of the day to
receive the congratulations for his
er f return frnm his manv friends.
A surprise had been planned for.
Mr. Lowe at the First Methodist
rluirch, but it was postponed until
Saturday. The surprise was to-have
been the presentation of a sedan auto
mobile, but the secret, as most secrets
do, became common knowledge and
the minister learned of it long before
his arrival in the Gate City.
Dr. Lowe, in speaking of the war,
"It's going to be a long and bloody
struggle, and the battle that is being
fought at this time is by no means
the end. The allies are united upon
' every proposition before them and
they are determined to fight until the
kaiser is completely conquered. They
want peace, but it must be a peace
that will be lasting and one that will
sound the death knell of autocracy
"Since the United Stat lias en
tered the war, there can be no ques
tion about the outcome. Our boys
are in the thick of the fight and they
are giving. a good account of them
"When I left "the ; war front 6ur
bovs had not gone into a fight as a.
separate and independent unit, but
were" scattered through the British
and French divisions, doing their bit
and doing it well. Now that they
have been consolidated at one point
they are going to be heard from.
Welcome U. S. Soldiers.
' '"England and France and all the
people of those cpuntries were glad to
welcome the United States soldiers,
for they felt that their entry into the
fighting was the turning point of the
"The question of defeat never en
ters the minds of officers, soldiers or
citizens nf the allied countries. : Thrv
are as confident of-victory as it is
possible for people to be. While they
are all anxious for peace, they will
never accept peace terms that will
permit of Germany continuing its
military system. It must be a peace
that will be lasting and a peace that
for all time to come will protect life
and property." v
During the greater portion of his
titne in Europe, Dr. Lowe was right
on, or close to the battle line. He
was in the front line trenches, where
he administered to the wounded, and
upon frequent occasions had an op
portunity to look over into No Man's
. land. . . .
Last night in the First Methodist
church there was a v public recep-
Ption for Dr. Lowe and Sunday he
will occupy his old, pulpit, both morn-.
I ing and evening. ,
Fred Walrath, who accompanies
Dr. Lowe to and from Europe, gained
20 pounds in weight while away. His
labors were strenuous, but he enjoyed
During most of Mr. Walrath s time
spent in the war zone he had charge
of transportation for the Young
Men's Christian association. This
kept- him at the front, where about
all the time he lived the life of a
soldier. Upon numerous occasions he
did first aid work on the battle field
and upon other occasions his duties
were to aid in carrying the wounded
out of No Man's lanf and to the held

Let Down Bars on Age Limit
' Owing to the difficulty in finding
men to do the work, the Omaha Street
.Railway company is likely to soon
let down the bars on age limit. Pre
viously men past 35 years old were
unable to find employment with the
company as niotormen or conductors.
Now applicants who are 40 years old
are accepted if they can pass the re
quired physical examinations. Exten
ing this limit to 47 years is considered
favorably. -, . .
During the last six months the
Street Railway company has lost a
great numbei of . the younger , con
ductors and nfotormen. Many have
gone to war, while a large number
nf nthera'have cone farming or en
gaged in other lines of work.,
