STATE CLOSE TO
QUOTA IN DRIVE
FOR THIRD LOAN
Nebraska Sure to Go Way
"Over Top " Declares Chair
man Byrne; County Re
turns Pour In.
"Nebraska is sure to go way over
the top in the third Liberty loan," de
clared State Chairman T. C. Byrne
when the report for 49 counties had
reached his desk. "The total for the
state will reach at least $50,000,000.
We are conducting the same sort of
campaign in every county that we did
in Douglas county, and that is to
put a bond in every home and on
i Of the first 49 counties going over
the top, 23 were undersubscribed in
the last campaign, but most of them
-have made up for their delinquency
by their wonderful showing in this
campaign. The quota for the state
The state tank was moved at noon
to the $29,000,000 mark by Creigliton
university students. Rev. A. F. Mc
Xemany was speaker.
Scouts Start Saturday.
Boy Scouts' "clean-up" drive will
start Saturday. They will appear in
all Omaha theaters Saturday night.
Next week they will make a housc-to-house
canvass to assist the commit
tee in placing a bond in every home.
Omaha banks sent their subscrip
tions to Kansas City Tuesday night.
Their subscription was given as $2,
000,000. Cherry count, the largest county
in the state, has exceeded its quota.
When Treasurer O. T. Eastman of
the Federal Reserve bank began to
color the county blue on his map,
which shows the progress of the
drive, someone pulled a stop watch
on him. It took him one minute and
58 seconds to do the trick. His
slowness was accounted for by the
fact that he had to stop once and
sharpen his pencil.
Quota is Tripled.
' J. IT. Lionberger, chairman of the
Waterloo district in Douglas county,
reports sales of $42,000 on a quota of
Scottsbluff county has exceeded its
quota of $468,000, as has Webster
county, with $238,500. "

Connor") will be in Omaha next Sat

ceived at Liberty loan headquarters.

sumed charge of his office Wednes
day. He received the congratulations
of his brother officers and friends
with becoming modesty.
Former acting chief, John Dunn,
was not at the station to welcome or
congratulate his successor, for the
reason that he has been compelled to
be absent from his duties for the
last two days, owing to the serious
illness of his little boy. The lad was
operated on Tuesday.
"I will make no radical changes.
Tt is doub'ful if I will make any at
all right now," said Captain Murphy.
Food Administration Rules
Reduce Sales of Sugar
To find out just what effect the
rules of the food administration have
had in reducing the consumption of
sugar, W. H. McCord of the McCord
Brady company has looked up records
of sales for that firm. These figures
show that there has been a great re
duction in the sale of sugar.
' Following figures, comparing this
year with last year, show the percent
age of sugar sales to the entire busi
ness of the company:
January 16.5 12.5
February 29.75 12.8
March 27 13.6
; Some of these savings are attributed
.to the strict regulatory orders of the
food administration and some to the
conservation which has been taught
Mayor and Running ffete. to Open
Thttr Bif Offraaiva TrMajr Night
The opoosine forces for the battle
of the bailors on May 7 are getting
their communication trenches estab
lished and are moving up their big
guns. Only skirmish fire has yet
marked the engagement. The mayor
and his running mates announce that
they will open their offensive in the
Swedish auditorium rndav night,
when a barrage tire will be laid. The
allied candidate are holding' small
meetings here and there and are plan
ning for several mass meetings be
fore the day when the voters will de
cide the struggle.
The allies contend that Jim
Dahlman is setting up a straw mat;
when he raises the issues of .base ball
and theaters on Sunday, in view of
the fact that this question has been
adjudicated in the courts and is net
an issue at this time.
Here is one of the best jokes of
the campaign, which up to date has
been almost jokeless and cheerless:
Tom O'Connor, campaign manager
for Mayor Dahlman and associated
candidates, ordered a lot of cards
bearing the names of the mayor and
his six running mates, on which this
line appeared: "Vote for these seven,
no more." When one of the mayor's
political advisors saw the cards he
immediately raised the question of
whether the voters would interpret
the line to mean, in fact, "Vote no
more for these seven." New cards
were ordered forthwith, and now the
line reads, "Vote for these seven."
The original purpose of the line was
to warn voters not to vote for more
than seven of the 14 candidates on
The "allied candidates" will address
meetings on Thursday noon at the
Morris packing plant and at the Ex
change building, South Side.
Are you registered for the election
on May 7? Change of residence since
last election requires revision of reg
istration. Friday will be the last day
to register for the city election.
A new political organization in the
South Side is known as the Ringer
and Towl Booster club, which met
Tuesday night in the interests of the
candidacies of J. Dean Ringer and
Roy N. Towl for city commissioners.
F.d P. Smith, Harry B. Zimman,
Henry F. Wulf and W. G. Ure also
were endorsed. A mass meeting has
been called for Friday night in Rush
ing's hall, Twenty-fourth and J
streets, when addresses will be made
by these candidates.
Primary expense accounts have
been 'filed with the election commis
sioner as follows: A. Sehultz, $57.50;
Thomas Hoctor, $167.60; John M.
Mayor Dahlman and associated
candidates will speak Friday night at
a mass meeting in the Swedish auditorium.
Ed P. Smith and Henry F. Wulf
have addressed several meetings at
Labor temple. They spoke Tuesday
night in Ancient Order of United
Workmen's hall, South Side.
"Greater Omaha will go ahead if we
build upon the right foundation and
are imbued with a progressive spirit,"
said Roy H. Towl, addressing a meet
ing of working men.
Jerry Howard, presiding at a meet
ing for the allied candidates, said:
"Things are not managed at the city
hall as thev should be."
