"I have two sons in the army and
I wanted to go myself," declared the
doctor, "so I convinced them that I
still had sufficient spirit and 'pep.' I
was 25 pounds underweight, but that
was the only thing wrong. The Los
Angeles army physicians were aston

Guest of Doctor.
During his short stay in Omaha be

Omaha as charity worker among
In 1898, there being no organized
work for orphan and neglected chil
dren here, D Clark responded to the
cry of the child and founded the
Child Saving institute. Since the be
ginning of ins work and up to the
time he left Omaha he cared for
nearly 4,000 children. The institute
building and equipments are valued

Associated Charity organization for
the estate of Nebraska. He served
as secretary of this organization for

court, and one of the secretaries of

THREE TO ACT AS
Mrs. H. H. Baldrige and Mrs.
C. T. Kountze Will Select
Third Judge; Announce
Mrs. H. H. Baldrige, head of the
shipping department of the Red Cross,
and Mrs. Charles T. Kountze, head of
the woman's service department, will
select a third woman and act as judges
in the "Woman's Salute Contest"
which closes today at 6 p. m. Winners
of the four prizes which aggregate
$50 will be announced in Sunday
Mrs. Baldrige and Mrs. Kountze,
although especially busy at all times
with their Red Cross work, were will
ing to undertake the task of going
through the hundreds of contest let
ters which have been received by The
Bee, and were delighted at the pros
pect of women having a salute with
which they can show respect and
reverence to Old Glory.
Endorse Salute Idea.
"I think it is a fine thing for The
Bee to do this," declared Mrs. Bald
rige. Mrs. C. D. Hutchinson. 4041 Seward
: street, Omaha, interprets her salute
i as meaning "To arms." It is done this
"Raise both arms above your head
with fingers extended, palms toward
G. S. Kinsler, 38(56 Farnam street,
Omaha: "Stand straight with left
hand straight down at side, head low
ered and right hand a little above the
heart, with three middle fingers ex
tended, standing for the red, white
and blue; others under hand."
Many contributors would have wo
men salute the flage in the same man
ner a private salutes an officer. It is
the opinion of army men that this is
distinctly an enlisted man's privilege.
C. Austin, 718 North Nineteenth
street, Omaha: "Place right hand on
chest, and pay a mental tribute to our
flag, reciting the following: All glory
be to thee, the emblem of the free,
wave above us evermore, freedom
reigns from shore to shore."
Miss Helen Linn, 2511 Ames ave
nue: "Face the flag, place right hand
over heart, then throw a kiss to the
M. Benson, 1605 Elm street: "Salute
with bowed head in the attitude of
reverence and prayer."
Mrs. M. Osbon, 4425 South Twenty-third
street: "Bring right hand to
the temple with thumb touching fore
head, then down to side, then up plac
ing the hand over the heart and down
to side, eyes on flag."
Mrs. B. F. Nine. 121 Grant avenue,
York, Neb., has been a "shut in" for
four years, due to an accident, but she
enthusiastically suggests a salute for
women who can review the American
flag. It is: "Place tip ends of fingers
of right hand against the lips and let
the hand fall backward toward the
flag an(J say 'I love you Old Glory.' "
Mrs. A. B. Hinterlong, 714 South
Thirty-sixth street. Omaha: "Use the
old fashioned courteous bow of colo
Clifton Young. 2517 M street,
Omaha: "Place the right hand on the
chest and bow the head."
The salute adopted by the Women's
Relief corps of the Grand Army of
the Republic is suggested by Mrs.
Taleferro, secretary of the Grant
corps of Omaha. It is as follows:
"The right hand is uplifted, palm
outward, to a line with and close to
the forehead, then dropped slowly to
Missouri Pacific Called
On Carpet by Terminal Men
Uncle Sam is about to go to the
mat with the Missouri Pacific Rail
The Omaha terminals committee
has asked the Missouri Pacific to ex
plain the delay in completion of the
double tracking of the Omaha Belt
line road and the construction of via
ducts at Dodge, Douglas and Farnam
The committee makes no threats,
but the inference is that if the rail
road does not speed up the work
started a year aso, it will be taken
out of their hands by the government.
A survey of the Belt line and the
connections has resulted in the con
clusion that it is necessary for the
expeditious handling of freight
through the Omaha terminals. It is
now a one-track line a greater part
of the distance and its facilities for
handling freight are seriously ham
pered by the work on the double
tracking and the building of the via
ducts. This work, it is contended,
has been permitted to drag to the in
convenience of roads operating over
It is said the aim of the terminals
committee is to route eastbound busi
ness out of South Omaha over the
Belt line and the Illinois Central
bridge, thus relieving the congestion
in the Omaha yards ami over the
Union Pacific bridge.
