called upon during the same month
to furnish 800 civilians to lay rail
roads. Under the new pretext the Ger-
man government, says the memor
andum, thus continues to tear the
Belgians away from their homes in
order to transport them into regions
immediately behind the German
front in France and Belgium.
There they are herded like cattle
in special camps, compelled to do
work of a military character; many
are sent into the zone of operations
and exposed to the fire of Belgian
or allied batteries.
Besides, they are subjected to bad
treatment and brutality; their com
plaints do not reach the outside
world, for the military zone where
they are sent is strictly closed and
no delegate of a neutral power is
ever allowed to enter this territory.

Washington, June 14. Evidence
that President Wilson intends to see
that the recommendations of the Na
tional War Labor board are followed
out. to the letter was seen today in
the text of his communication to the
heads of the two great telegraph
companies asking that they accept
the board's findings in their contro
versy with their employes.
The fact that the president had
personally taken up the case became
known last night with the announce
ment that Clarence H. Mackay, presi
dent of the Postal Telegraph com
pany, that his company would waive
its right to discharge men who have
joined a union, and that Newcomb
Carlton, president of the Western
Union, would send his answer Mon
day. St. Paul, Minn., June 14. S. J.
Konenkamp, president of the Com
mercial Telegraphers Union of Amer-
. ica, declared tonight that President
Wilson's action in asking telegraph
. officials to accept findings of the Na
tional War Labor board probably
would result in some solution of the
controversy be'fore a strike of the
Western Union company's operators

AT FORT OMAHA
(Contlnoed From Page One.)
the United States army of today,
the spirit of reverence toward wo
manhood, the spirit which no longer
regards a woman as a mere flower
to be plucked.
Lead New Conflict.
"American soldiers are to lead in
a new conflict f self-control and
moderation against an enemy which
knows no self-control or moderation,
which has bartered its soul for ma
terial gain for conquest and for lust.
"It is our mothers for whom we
should thank God, fellows, our
mothers and our sisters who person
ify all that is pure and noble in our
home life. And the new American
army treats the sister of any other
man as he would want his own sis
ter to be treated."
After the close of his talk the sol
diers gathered about Mr. Rockefeller
to shake his hand. He gave each mart
a word of greeting and stood sur
rounded by earnest, questioning
groups, long after his talk was fin
ished. From Fort Omaha Mr. Rockefeller
went directly to Florence field, where
he gave a short talk and held the same
kind of reception and was cheered
in the same fashion.
From Florence field he was driven
down town, stopping in front of a
drug store to eat ice cream sodas with
the other members of the party.
To Visit Other Camps.
Mr. Rockefeller was met in Omaha
by A. H. Lichty, executive secretary
of the central department of the
Young Mens Christian association.
Mr. Lichty is supervisor of the army
work of 612 association secretaries
in army camps extending from Penn
sylvania to Utah. This morning the
two will leave for Camp Dodge, la.,
and from there will make a 10 days'
tour' of army camps east of Des
Mr. Rockefeller made his trip west
for business purposes and has spent
10 days in Colorado looking after his
interests there. He spoke at Fort
Logan, Colo., Thursday evening.
Mrs. Rockefeller has accompanied
her husband on his trip and was with
him in Omaha until early yesterday
evening, when she and Miss Abby
Rockefeller, the daughter of the fam
ily, left for New York City.
Mr. Rockefeller has five sons, the
oldest of whom is IS vears old. He
says they all are anxious to be sol
diers and to wear the khaki.
"I am much pleased with the
spirit of the west," said Mr. Rocke
feller yesterday afternoon at his hotel.
"The west is surely roused to the
meaning of the war. Why, do you
know, that in dozens of our mining
camps in Colorado, every man in
the whole camp has bought Liberty
bonds? I never saw anything like it."
CRITICAL POINT IN
WAR HAS ARRIVED
London, June 14. Speaking at a
luncheon of the Aldwich club today,
former Premier Asquith said there
was no use in cloaking the fact, or
minimizing its gravity that the allies
had reached a most critical point in
the fortunes of war.
But nothing that had happened on
the western front since the last week
of March, he added, would in the
slightest degree weaken British al
legiance to the great purpose for
which the British people were fight
ing, or their determination to press
on to the final accomplishment of
