Manager Bill Jackson of the Rourkes
Van Gilder reported to Omaha on
his birthday. He was just 21 years
old Tuesday. Thus he became a man
and voter on the same day he re
ported for duty at Rourke park.
If appearances count for anything,
Van Gilder is considerable man. His

Marcosson, writing In the Cleveland News,
said of Powell: "Madame Powell, queen of
violinists, demonstrated her sovereignty and
the fact that her wonderful powers are ever
on the Increase. Her genius deals with the
big things of violin literature and her art
enhances whatever she touches. The rare
charm and delicacy of conception, the large
sympathetic tone, the plastic sense of Inter
pretation expressed In a technic of clean-
cut steel, the mental grasp and breadth of
delivery, all stamp Powell a great artist,
Irrespective of sex.''

Campaign to Begin at Once,
Following Appointment of
Chairmen of Committees;
Goal Set at 3,000.
Chairmen for 13 Ak-Sar-Ben "hus
tling" committees, to begin the work
of obtaining new members for the
1918 season, were named at the first
banquet of the year at the Paxton
hotel Wednesday. The campaign will
start immediately in a "quiet" man
ner, with the climax set for some day
in June or July, when "Ak-Sar-Ben
day" will be proclaimed and an inten
sive "drive" made for 24 hours.
The 13 chairmen are Dan Whitney,
Jack Walters, W. II. Crawford, Joe
Bixler, Harry Mahaffey, W. H. Met
calf, Julius Rosenzweig, N. T. Thor
son, J. W. Harwell, L. P. Dyhrberg,
J. L. Hogan, John T. Dysart and Ed
Brailey. Each of these chairmen will
select two men to form the commit
tee. The membership goal for the sum
mer was set at 3,000 by "Dad"
Weaver, secretary. He urged the
committee members to keep the work
up until the last show has been staged
at the "den" instead of halting after
the first show, as has been the cus
" "Early Bird" Favored.
Efforts to divide the city into dis
tricts for the different committees,
led by Louis C. Nash of Burgess
Nash, failed to result in unanimous
consent, the old custom of allowing
the "early bird" to reap the harvest
in certain favored business houses re
W. D. Hosford acted as chairman
of the meeting. About 35 members of
the original "hustling committee" at
tended the dinner.
The fate of Ak-Sar-Ben, which has
featured the summer in Omaha for
several years, hung in the balance for
a while, according to Mr. Nash. St.
Louis, New Orleans and other cities,
which have similar organizations, de
cided at the outset of the entrance of
America into the war to discontinue
their activities. For that reason the
Ak-Sar-Ben is several weeks behind
this year in opening its activities.
Finally it was decided by the board
of directors, declared Mr. Nash, to
go ahead with the entertainment, and
if conditions grew more serious it
could be discontinued.
In order to secure the 3,000 mem
bers each of the 13 committees must
enroll about 200 new members, there
being at present 600 men enrolled for
the year of 1918.
