Boy Scouts say they are finding
few homes in Omaha which do not
own a Liberty bond of the third issue.
While they are making numerous
sales, the Boy Scouts report that the
majority of the bonds are being sold
to those who already own third Lib
erty bonds. ,
The house-to-house canvass in the
interest of the sale of third Liberty
loan bonds started Monday afternoon
with a' large number of Boy Scouts
participating. Each troop worked in
its home territory, and, failing to
cover the ground in the afternoon,
the boys turned out again after sup
per and covered the same ground as
in the afternoon.
Better results were obtained in the
later canvass, as in the majority of
cases the man of the house was
found at home.
The honor flags were delivered to
all homes where a bond was sold by
the boys or where one was already
owned, and in some cases second
sales were made by the youthful
salesmen. All homes in which there
is not a bond will be listed and the
names turned over to the general
committee for investigation.
Honor Flags Delivered.
Daily records are not being kept
of the sales of the 48 divisions of the
Boy Scouts, but after the week's drive

each troop' will be announced. The

about $100 a sale, although some larg

JOB AS RESULT OF
Clerk in Office of Treasurer
Endres Says Action is Re
sult of Antipathy Toward
Frank Elias, clerk in the office of
City and County Treasurer 'Endres,
His action, he declares, is a result
of antipathy toward him as a result
of a publication in The Bee of a
statement by Joseph St. Lucas, leader
of the Union. Pacific band., that,
Endres had refused to allow him
(Elias), a drummer, to leave his
work so that he could accompany
the band on a Liberty bond drive over
the Union Pacific to Cheyenne.
"Employes of the office," said Mr.
Elias, "have made it so unpleasant for
me since the publication of that ar
ticle that I find it impossible to keep
my job any longer."
Elias alleges discrimination against
him by Endres.
"Following a resignation recently,
a position higher up than mine was
vacant and I felt that, in point of
seniority and worth, I was entitled
to the appointment. I applied to Mr.
Endres, who informed me that it was
a democratic office and that a demo
crat would get the job!"
"It is customary to receive our pay
on the last of the month, but, this
month, owing, I believe, to the fact
that Endres knows I intend to leave,
he has deferred payment until to
day and I will have to make a
special trip down town for the
Mr. Endres offered the following
statement anent the resignation of
Elias: "So far as I am able to state,
there was no feeling between Elias
and myself, certainly not on my part.
I asked him to remain in the service,
because he was an efficient clerk.
Whether there was any situation in
the office in connection with a recent
newspaper article in which Elias'
name was mentioned, was a matter of
hearsay and I did not go into that.
He may have thought that he should
have been given a promotion which
was not ready for action, because the
clerk who is away on lick leave may
