No reports have as yet been re

Rupprecht's reinforcements which are
believed to be rushing toward the bat
tlefield in an attempt to prevent an
even greater defeat In the mean
time the British and French are tak-
ing the fullest advantage of the op
portunity and at the same time are
prepared to withstand any shock
which may develop.
Tanks Advance Rapidly.
Most of the prisoners and guns
captured by British troops hove been
taken in the narrow triangle between
the Roye and Peronne roads. British
tanks advanced with great rapidity
up these highways. They were fol

Chaulnes Junction Is Objective.
Chaulnes Junction, which is most

fall would be embarrassing to the
Germans over a wide area.
There was very heavv fithtinr to
day around Chipilly, on the north
bank of the Somme, where the Ger
mans were trying to hold up the Brit
ish advance by striking a determined
blow at the advancing troops. The
British did not succeed in holding all
the ground they had gained in this
district but meanwhile the advance
continues further southward, 1 and the

(Continued From Fat One.)
the intention of, the department to
extend the work or fight order to
include classes of persons in various
professional occupations. I told them
there was no present change of the
work or fight order in contemplation.
I said that when I decided the base
ball case I thought perhaps other
forms of amusement might require an
extension of the order to be on a
parity with the base ball situation,
but that was not in their mind.
"They had heard from outside
sources that the department was con
sidering bringing professional classes,
like lawyers, newspapermen and per
sons who are not actually engaged
in producing war supplies, under the
No Fixed Policy.
The committee. Mr. Baker con
tinued, was especially interested in
the effect of the extension of the
draft ages on colleges and also in the
question as to whether young men
from 18 up would be drawn indiscrim
inately in Class 1, or placed in a de
ferred class by age and drawn later,
giving them tome added months to
come to maturity.
. "I told the committee" said the
war secretary, "that no fixed policy
had been determined upon by the
department, but that the purpose was
to allow the president to defer in
Class 1 the call of the youngest l.ien.
I have always considered, as, you
perhaps remember, that 19 was the
probable minimum, and I have come
to the 18 minimum only because it
seems necessary to get the men.
"Not that I think men of 18 are
necessarily too young, because I do
not think that I think that history
shows that the boys from 18 to 19 are
immensely valuable, as valuable, per
haps, as from 19 to Z0; but I think
there is a sentiment In the country
which will look with very much more
anxious regard on the boys from 18
to 19 than the boys from IV to zu
Eighteen yean seem to many people
a more tender age than 19, and it
is for that reason that we are think
ing of making this preferential de
ferment of men from 18 to 19."
Plan Registration on. Sept 5.
Senators said that in urging speedy
enactment of the new manpower leg
islation Mr. Baker had left to the
judgment of congressional leaders the
question of recalling the senate in
session before the expiration of the
recess program August 26, because
the leaders are ' more familiar with
the legislative program than is the
Mr. Baker told the committee, sen
ators said, that the department wanted
to carry out the plan of registering
the men September 5, so that Class 1
could be resupptied. The present res
ervoir soon will be exhausted tnd
it was said that either the size of the
monthly calls must be reduced, ur
men taken from the deferred classes
Secretary Baker was the last of
army and navy officials to be called
before the committee begins consid
eration of the new bill. Because of
the committee's visit to the war coun
cil, Chairman Chamberlain announced
that no meeting would be held to
morrow but that the committee would
assemble Monday, when an effort will
be made to reach a favorable report
on the measure.

TO THE PEOPLE OF NEBRASKA , .
George W. Norris has done faithful work for the country,' in
the House and in the Senate, and he deserves our full support i .
In the House he led the great fight against the old machine,
and he wrought a revolution in that body. Because of this he
was fought and maliciously traduced by the representatives of
combines and "Big Business" and the profiteers of yesterday
and today. , ,
In the Senate he has become one of the powerful figures. H
has done great work for the people on the agricultural commit
tee. He has been one of the leaders in the movement to make
the nation dry and thus conserve our grain and food for the
prosecution of the war. He is for equal suffrage, state and
national. '' . '
He took the stand last year now that we are in the war
the great issue at home is how to pay the expenses. He fought
hard for a revenue bill that would place the burden where it
belongs on the shoulders of those who make big money out of
war conditions, and not on the shoulders of the common people. -;
"Big Business" won out with a billwhichisnow found to be '
failure, and a new one must be constructed, therefore, they do
not want men of the Norris type in the Senate, and they are
pouring out unlimited money to beat him.
The next six years will be the time of readjustment and
reconstruction. We want George W. Norris to be there with his
constructive ability and honesty to look after the interests of
6He has'supported every legitimate measure to help win the war. He haa
taken a leading part in the speaking campaigns for Liberty bonds and, ed
Cross funds. His brother was killed in the Civil war. His daughter haa
wedded a soldier. His every thought and act is for hia country's honor
and progress. Don't be fooled by the agents of profiteer! or by their
newspapers. . ' .
