"B" Using their information for

Immediate Need in France May
Make Increased Flow
of Men to the Front
Washington, April 5. Orders for
the mobilization of the first large num
ber of men of the second draft soon
will be out to the governors of the
Fifteen thousand men of the second
draft are now mobilizing, and the
April call about to go out will repre
sent probably more than he month's
proportion of the 800,000 men who
will be called during the remaining
nine months of the year. Tp call the
800,000 in equa monthly increments
would mobolize them at the rate of
90,000 a approximately. How
ever, there is no assurance that this
will be a fixed figure, because the
flow of meii will be determined by
the needs of the army in France. As
General Pershing may call for speci
ally qualifier! troops, an average of
90,000 a month may be much exceeded
or much decreased.
Needed in France.
The men will be drawn as gradual
ly and in as small numbers as possible
so as not to. dislocate industry and
particularly agriculture . x
The immediate need of increasing
the Americanforces in France, how
ever, to meet the German drive in the
west is likely to result in calling the
men faster than at first supposed.
For that reason the April quota un
doubtedly will exceed its normal aver
age. If the need is pressing, the en
tire 800,000 might be called in much
less than the nine months originally
Conrad Out of Business for
60 Days; Took Excess Profits
J. H. Conrad, brojeer and commis
sion merchant in grain and mill
stuffs, with offices at 215 Omafia
Grain Exchange building, has gone
out of business voluntarily for 60
days beginning April 5, after a hear-
ing before the federal food adminis
j traTtr for Nebraska.
He admitted that he took excess
profits on the sale of mill wheat
feeds. He has agreed to refund all
excess profits taken on sales made
from February 13 to April 5. The re
fund will go to the consumers, most
of whom live in Texas, from which
state the complaints came.
The Omaha Alfalfa. Milling com
pany has, also gone, out of business
voluntarily for a period of 15 days,
beginning April 5. This concern has
been quoting prices on mill feeds,
such as bran and meal, which were
in excess of the prices allowed by
the food administration. It has agreed
to refund any overcharge made on
these products. Representatives of
the mill said they did not know the
prices they were quoting were exces
sive. Going out of business voluntarily
has an advantage over waiting to let
the food administrator revoke a
licfinse in that the concern can ap
pear before the food administration
before the expiration of the time spe-
kiucu, jjuiu it u can convince me iooa
administration that it will observe the
regulations in the future it may be
allowed; to resume business.
New Districting Results in
Confusion to Some Voters
"Do you kndw your precinct and
polling place?" is a question frequent
ly heard as the city primary day
draws near;
In so far as the city election is
concerned, the ward and precinct
divisions are merely for convenience
in making it possible for voters to
east their ballots at the nearest pos
sible locations. The new districting,
however, caused many changes and
the suggestion has been made that
A 1 J ,11
vnwrs snouiu Know wnere iney are
at' before next Tuesday.
There are 154 districts under the
new plan of ward division. The
Third warL for instance, extends
west to -Thirteenth street in a district
north and south of Cuming street.
, In many instances dwellings will
be use as voting places and fire en
gine houses and school buildings will
be used in cases -where their loca
tions will best serve the voters.
The election commissioner believes
that much confusion may be avoided
if voters will take time to determine
their polling places before Tuesday.

"Col." William F. Stoecker,, who it
a candidate for city commissioner

in crossing the well-guarded border
near Emmerich, on-the-Rhine, reach

of the free in 1880. The German
government was glad to get rid of
him, so offered no reward for his
capture. This would-be patriot has a
habit of deserting. Only a few weeks
aero he deserted from our citv whan
his common-law wife started suit
against him for divorce,,and was in
