WOLFE SAYS HIS
BANK HAS MADE
ALL DUE EFFOBT
Thomas Wolfe of David City, ores!
dent of the First National bank of
that town, refers to the action of the
Mate Council of Defense in summon
ing him for inquiry as to his purchase
of Liberty bonds as an action unwar
ranted. It was, says Mr. Wolfe, due
to malicious charges made by gos
sip mongers and irrcsponsibles. He
"This bank had taken its full alhw
ance of the second issue of the
per cent Liberty bonds amounting to
$19,000, a3 apportioned by the Butler
County Bankers' association, and has
now on hand $13,400. I have person
ally taken $1,100 of the 4 per cent
bonds and subscribed $3,900 more of
the All per cent third issue, and paid
my Red Cross assessment of $100
cheerfully, as well as made other con
tributions. I have done my utmost
to assist farmers and stock raisers
from my own resources to stimulate the
production of food the past year this
may not count as patriotism much
among the accusers and shouters, but
it is as vital to win the war as any
other contribution, and should we
have failure of crops it 'might prove
of the Kreatest importance.
"The undeserved compliment of be-
incr classed with millionaires my na
tive modesty forbids me to accept,
but if these windy natriots can lurnisn
the monev t that extent I might con
tribute enough to the war fund to
male un what these worthies lack
now in contributing. Let them show
up their contributions."

Will Simplify Process of
Switching in Omaha Yards
General Manager Jeffers of the
Union Pacific, who has been placed
in charge of the Omaha railroad ter
minals, is expected to complete , his
plansi, soon after his return from the
Tentative plans formulated by Mr.
effers, it is said, -will simplify the
switching, release , considerable mo
tive power and at the same time
speed up service. For instance, in
handling loaded meat cars from the
South Side packing houses the rule
has been in the past for engines of
Omaha-Chicago lines to take the cars,
one, two or, perhaps three at a time,
as delivered to them by the stock
yards' switching crews. These cars
were then held until enough to make
up a train were collected. Under the
new plan, one engine will collect all
the loaded meat cars and take them
into the unified switching yards,
where they will be turned over to a
designated road and sent east with
out any delay.

Explain How War is Financed
. W. W. Head, vice president of the

"Financing the War." The Off-Night
club is an organization of doctors.
Mr. Head showed how the wonder
ful increase in the price of commodi
ties made it much harder to finance
the concerns which handle these
"It takes a vast amount of money
to handle all these commodities from
the time they start from the producer
until Uncle Sam is ready to pay for
them when they are placed on boats
and started for France, or when they
reach the ultimate consumer if they
are for consumption in this country,"
said Mr. Head. He cited several in
teresting instances of the money it re
quires to finance large concerns which
