OF SPEAKERS AT

Ross T. Hammond of Fremont,
John J. Eorcher of Omaha, J. J. Towle
of Lincoln, W. S. Weston of Harting
ton and John A. Hartington were the
principal speakers at the day session,
while Gurdon W. Wattles, state food
administrator, was the speaker at the
banquet in the evening.
Mr. Wattles was introduced by Mr.
Weil of Lincoln as the man who had
been working for no compensation.
Mr. Wattles desired to correct the re
mark of the toastmaster by saying
that it was not true. "While a man
may work along the line I have been
working for no monetary compensa
tion," said Mr. Watties, "the fact that
one has done his best in a work of this
kind, is the greatest compensation any
man can receive."
Ennobled by Sacrifices.
The sacrifice that the people are
making in this war is making them
better people, according to Mr. Wat
tles, and will make them better citi
zens. "When the appeal was put out
to send in flour that it might be sent
across to our soldiers, the people from
all over the state responded nobly
and one sack, two sacks and more
were received from a large number of
people who desired to do their part.
It has resulted in changing the coun
try from a luke-warm patriotism to an
"The man who wears the uniform
of an American soldier is the son of
a patriot," he said, "for the fathers of
thee men in so many instances have
made great sacrifices, especially on
the farms, that their boys could go
out to help win the war for democ
racy. But the boys who come home
will be our heroes, and will control
the destinies of this country.
Curb on Aliens.
"There used to be a time when a
man could maligne our officers and we
would elect him to congress, but that
time has passed. The boys who come
back are not going to stand for that,
kind of business, and will not see this 1
country traduced after fighting the
battles of the world in so noble a
"Men have come to this country and
have been admitted to citizenship be
fore they really knew what it meant,
while your boys had to wait 21 years
before they could have a part in the
making of our laws. This will all be
changed when this war is over. We
are going to live in a new world.
There are new ideas spreading and the
time is coining when the man who
works with his hands or his brains is
going to have a chance over the man
who simply has the money. There
is something wrong in the system
which allows one man to have millions
while another starves for want of
Mr Wattlps said that more monev
had been sent out of Nebraska for!
i war purposes in the last year then i
had been on deposit in all the banks I
of the state 10 years ago. rle closed
his address by asking that every man
be loyal to the cause and give his
every effort to assisting in keeping
the boys across the water well sup
plied with the things they need.

Alkali Makes Soap
Bad For Washing Hair
Most soaps and prepared shampoos
contain too much alkali, which is
very injurious, as it dries the scalp
and makes the hair brittle.
The best thine to use is just plain
mulsified cocoanut oil, for this is
pure and entirely greaseless. It's very
cheap, and beats the most expensive
soaps or anything else all to pieces.
You can get this at any drug store,
and a few ounces will last the whole
family for months.
Simply moisten the hair with water
and rub it in, about a teaspoonful is
all that isrequired. It makes an
abundance of rich, creamy lather,
cleanses thoroughly, and rinses out
easily. The hair dries quickly and
evenly, and is soft, fresh looking,
bright, fluffy, wavy and easy to han
dle. Besides, it loosens and takes out
every particle of dust, dirt and dan
